Abortion-related issues remain part of budget

Man taken off suicide watch CLEVELAND (AP) — The Ohio man jailed on charges he held three women captive and raped them over a decade in his Cleveland house is no longer seen as a suicide risk, jail officials said Wednesday. Ariel Castro, 52, has been taken off “suicide watch, prevention” Cuyahoga County jail John spokesman O’Brien said. O’Brien declined to specify the reason for the status change, but jail logs show Castro’s first month behind bars has been uneventful. The most recent logs through Tuesday show Castro watches a lot of television, sleeps a lot and has met with his defense attorneys in recent days. When he asked to take a shower, he got permission and his cell was checked for contraband. None was found. has been Castro locked up since his arrest May 6, shortly after the three women emerged from his house and said they had been held captive. He is being held on $8 million bond. Castro’s lawyers said he will plead not guilty to rape and kidnapping charges involving the three women and to a kidnapping charge involving a 6-year-old girl he fathered by one of the women. The case is now before a county grand jury. The methodical logs reflect checks every 15 minutes around the clock: typically describing briefly what Castro is doing at the time. During a four-hour period last Thursday, there were 18 one-line notations, most a variation of “Round made Castro sleeping on mat” and “Round made Castro watching TV.” Each shift makes note of the requirement to notify a supervisor of any movements involving Castro, such as a shower or attorney visits.

RETIRING OHIO State President Gordon Gee discusses his decision to leave in July at a news conference on Wednesday at the Ohio State student union in Columbus. Gee’s announcement followed news first reported last week by The Associated Press of remarks he made in December jabbing Roman Catholics and Notre Dame.

Gee cites age, family as reasons for retiring BY ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS The Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Retiring Ohio State University President Gordon Gee attempted to make his departure personal on Wednesday, citing everything from his age to his 7-month-old twin granddaughters to a California girlfriend as reasons for his abrupt departure next month. He continued to downplay the furor over remarks first reported by The Associated Press jabbing Roman Catholics, Notre Dame and the ConferSoutheastern ence, comments taken seriously enough by university trustees that they threatened in March to fire him for further verbal transgressions. If anything, the remarks helped Gee reflect on what he wanted to do next, he said at a morning news conference. “It played that role but not a defining role in terms of my own conversation with myself,” Gee said. Gee left that news conference for a closeddoor meeting with board trustees to discuss a long-term university plan. He says that upcoming project is another reason he wants to step down now rather than later. He couldn’t say

when asked if he would have made a different decision had the remarks, recorded in December, not been made public last week. Gee explained away his abrupt resignation by citing a desire not to stay on any longer. “I’m not a victory lap guy,” Gee said Wednesday. “The last thing I want to do is be queen for a day. I want to move on. I want the university to move on.” chairman Trustee Robert Schottenstein denied Gee had been forced out. In Dec. 5 comments to the university Athletic Council, Gee jokingly referred to “those damn Catholics” at Notre Dame and poked fun at the academic quality of other schools. He apologized when the comments were disclosed, saying they were “a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate.” Ohio State at the time called the comments unacceptable and said it had placed Gee on a remediation plan to change his behavior. It was the latest in a string of remarks Gee has made in recent years that put him in hot water, though the first that brought such a strong warning from trustees. He apologized last year for likening the

difficulties of coordinating various university divisions to the Polish Army. In 2011, Gee got egg on his face for saying at a news conference that rather than firing his embattled football coach he was worried that the coach “doesn’t dismiss me.” In 2010, he apologized for criticizing other bigtime football programs for having a schedule equivalent to playing “the Little Sisters of the Poor.” Gee, 69, wearing one of his trademark bowties, said he was finding it more and more difficult to do his job the way he wants, which is like a man half his age. “I want to run it in the way that I can run full tilt,” said Gee, how says he’s in good health. “And so I don’t ever want to ever lose a step.” Gee, a Mormon, said the opportunity to hold his twin granddaughters in his arms on a recent cruise gave him pause. “I’m sitting on the deck of the ship, and I’m rocking these little girls, and I’m thinking this is the first time I’ve ever rocked a child for 33 years,” said Gee, who in a tweet later in the morning said life “is all about perspective” and included a picture of his granddaughters.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A state budget that revamps Republican Gov. John Kasich’s school funding proposal and restores his small business tax plan passed a GOPled Ohio Senate panel on Wednesday, as the massive bill edges closer to clearing both chambers of the Legislature. The Senate Finance Committee voted along party lines to clear the $61.7 billion, two-year spending plan. The full Senate planned to vote Thursday. A committee of lawmakers from both the House and Senate is expected to sort out differences between their versions of the budget before it reaches Kasich’s desk. The Senate panel made a host of changes, including adding a provision to ban public hospitals from having agreements with abortion clinics to transfer patients. Abortion rights advocates say the move will force many facilities to close, limiting access to abortions. “If safe, legal clinics

can no longer provide abortion care in Ohio, where will women turn?” Kellie Copeland, executive director of the NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, said in a statement. State health department regulations require all ambulatory surgical facilities in Ohio, including abortion providers, to have transfer agreements with hospitals that would take patients in case they experience medical complications. State Sen. Joe Ueker, a Loveland Republican, offered the amendment because he said it tightens Ohio’s prohibition on using public money to support abortions. He said the agreements left open the chance for public hospitals to complete the procedure, should something go wrong at an abortion clinic. “Someone has to stand up for the rights of the unborn,” he said. Senators also kept a House-added provision to send Planned Parenthood to the back of the line for public familyplanning money.

Gay marriage measure eyed for 2014 ballot COLUMBUS (AP) — Organizers seeking to overturn the state’s ban on same-sex marriage say they’re aiming to put the issue before voters in 2014. Leaders of the group FreedomOhio say they’ve decided not to try for this year’s ballot in order to continue discussing the idea with voters and raising resources for their campaign. They’ve also met with other organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign, to discuss the effort. FreedomOhio wants to overturn the 2004 state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Supporters started collecting signatures last year to place their own constitutional amendment on the ballot. The measure would not require churches and other religious institutions to perform or recognize a marriage. The amendment banning gay marriage was supported by 62 percent of Ohio voters at the time.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Thursday, June 6, the 157th day of 2013. There are 208 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 6, 1944, Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, on “D-Day,” beginning the liberation of German-occupied western Europe during World War II. On this date: • In 1513, troops of the Swiss Confederation defeated the French in the Battle of Novara. • In 1799, American and orator politician Patrick Henry died at Red Hill Plantation in Virginia. • In 1844, the Young Men’s Christian Association was founded in London. • In 1912, the greatest volcanic eruption of the 20th century took place as Novarupta in Alaska began a series of explosive episodes over a 60-hour period. • In 1925, Walter Percy Chrysler founded the Chrysler Corp. • In 1932, the Senate approved, and President Herbert Hoover signed, a Revenue Act containing the first federal gasoline tax, which was one cent per gallon. • In 1933, the first drive-in movie theater was opened by Richard Hollingshead in Camden County, N.J. (The movie shown was “Wives Beware,” starring Adolphe Menjou.) • In 1966, black activist James Meredith was shot and wounded as he walked along a Mississippi highway to encourage black voter registration. • In 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy died at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, a day after he was shot by Sirhan Bishara Sirhan. • In 1978, California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 13, a primary ballot initiative calling for major cuts in property taxes. • In 1982, Israeli forces invaded Lebanon to drive Palestine Liberation Organization fighters out of the country. (The Israelis withdrew in June 1985.) • In 1985, authorities in Brazil exhumed a body later identified as the remains of Dr. Josef Mengele, the notorious “Angel of Death” of the Nazi Holocaust.


105: He’s not too old to drive NGATAKI, New Zealand (AP) — Bob Edwards was born before the first Model T rolled out of Henry Ford’s factory in Detroit. He learned to drive in a French car that had a lever instead of a steering wheel. And he’s still on the road, only now in a red four-wheel-drive Mitsubishi. The oldest licensed driver in New Zealand, and one of the oldest in the world, has been driving for 88 of his 105 years and has no plans to give it up, just as he intends to keep working out every morning in his home gym, and to keep regularly cooking meals for himself and his wife, who’s 91. “In fact, I don’t think I’m old,” Edwards says. “Not really.” He’s been involved in just one crash in his life and has gotten just one speeding ticket, a citation that still gets him riled up years later. When he broke his left hip three years ago, his doctors said to stop driving for six weeks but he didn’t pay them much mind. After all, he says, he drives an automatic and only needs his right leg for that.

Copters pluck families from raging floods DRESDEN, Germany (AP) — Desperate families were plucked from rooftops by helicopters, cars were swept away by raging torrents and levees without warning failed Wednesday as central Europe staggered under an inland ocean of flooding. Tens of thousands of people had to be evacuated in Germany and the Czech Republic and chemical plants along the mighty Danube and Elbe rivers were hastily shut down. City officials, federal troops and emergency workers across a vast region either raced to prepare or struggled to cope as flood crests roared downstream. Near the southeastern German town of Deggendorf, two levees broke along the Danube and Isar rivers and their raging waters engulfed nearby houses. A southern German highway disappeared under the muddy floodwaters, cars were swept away and only the top of a few trucks peeked out above the waters. Families scrambled to their rooftops and were airlifted to safety. “This is an absolutely lifethreatening situation,” local firefighter Alois Schraufstetter said. “Houses are covered up to 3 meters (10 feet) deep in water.” Four farmers were rescued at the last minute by a helicopter airlift as floods submerged their tractor, he said. About 2,000 people were evacuated. “We would have risked our lives had we stayed at home,” resident Hans Loefflmann said, adding that he and his wife had to leave all their

84-year-old widow claims jackpot TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — An 84-year-old Florida widow who bought her Powerball ticket after another customer let her get ahead in line came forward Wednesday to claim the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in history: $590 million. Gloria C. MacKenzie, a retiree from Maine and a mother of four who lives in a modest, tin-roof house in Zephyrhills, where the lone winning ticket in the May 18 drawing was sold, took her prize in a lump sum of just over $370 million. After federal taxes, she is getting about $278 million, lottery officials said. She did not speak to a crowd of reporters outside lottery headquarters, leaving quickly in a silver Ford Focus with her son and family friends. She was accompanied at the lottery offices by two unidentified attorneys. MacKenzie bought the winning ticket at a Publix supermarket in the town of

about 13,300, which is 30 miles northeast of Tampa. It is best known for the bottled spring water that bears its name — and now, for one of the biggest lottery winners of all time. The $590 million was the second-largest lottery jackpot in history, behind a $656 million Mega Millions prize in March 2012, but that sum was split, with three winning tickets. In a statement read by lottery officials, MacKenzie said she purchased the ticket after another buyer “was kind enough to let me go ahead in line.” MacKenzie let the lottery computers generate the numbers at random. She said she also bought four other tickets for the drawing. “We are grateful with this blessing of winning the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot,” the statement said. “We hope that everyone would give us the opportunity to maintain our privacy for our family’s benefit.”

The winner had 60 days to claim the prize. Lottery spokesman David Bishop said MacKenzie, her lawyers and her financial adviser spent about two hours going through the necessary paperwork. “They had clearly been preparing for this. They took all this time to get everything in order,” Bishop said. Minutes after the announcement, a dozen reporters in Zephyrhills were camped outside MacKenzie’s gray duplex, which backs up to a dirt alley and is across from a cow pasture. Neighbors were surprised by her good fortune. “She didn’t say anything about it. She’s so quiet and secluded. She’s usually in the house,” said James Hill. “I’m very happy for her. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. She was always pleasant and smiling.” Another neighbor, Don Cecil, joked, “I hope she gets a better place to live.”

MURDER outraged at the idea that Bales could escape execution when they spoke to The Associated Press in April in Kandahar. “A prison sentence doesn’t mean anything,” said Said Jan, whose wife and three other relatives were slain. “I know we have no power now. But I will become stronger, and if he does not hang, I will have my revenge.” A jury will decide in August whether the soldier is sentenced to life with or without the possibility of parole. He would serve his prison sentence at Fort Leavenworth, the military prison in Kansas. Wednesday’s proceedings at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle marked the first time Bales provided a public account of the massacre. For each charge, the judge asked him a series of questions to assess the validity of his plea. Did he believe he had legal justification to kill the victims? Was he acting in selfdefense? Did anyone force or coerce him to commit the murders? For each, Bales answered, “No, sir.”

American intervention overseas for humanitarian purposes. But it’s unclear whether that philosophy will alter the president’s policies in Syria, where he has resisted pressure to use U.S. military force to stem that country’s civil war. Rice’s appointment provides a measure of redemption after the contentious Benghazi investigations forced her from consideration as Obama’s second-term secretary of state. The president, who vigorously defended Rice from the GOP criticism at the time, lauded his close friend Wednesday as a “patriot who puts her country first.” “Susan is a fierce champion for justice and human decency. But she’s also mindful that we have to exercise our power wisely and deliberately,” Obama said in a White House Rose Garden ceremony. The 48-year-old Rice takes the influential national security post in the president’s inner circle from Tom Donilon, who is stepping down in July after more than four years in the Obama White House. The president credited Donilon with having “shaped every single national security policy of my presidency,” including the renewed U.S. focus on the Asia-Pacific region and the tricky American relationship with Russia. Wednesday’s announcements came as Obama seeks to regroup from three controversies that have emboldened Republicans and threatened to overshadow his agenda: the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative political groups, the Justice Department’s seizure of phone records of Associated Press journalists and the resurgent investigation into the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Rice became entangled in the Benghazi case after asserting in television interviews that the September attack was probably spontaneous, a statement that was later proven false. While Rice said she was relying on talking points crafted by the administration, she became a target for Republicans accusing the White House of trying to cover up a terror attack during the presidential election.

From Page 1 In a clear, steady voice, Bales also read from a statement. “This act was without legal justification, sir,” the 39-yearold infantryman said while seated at a defense table, his hands folded in front of him. At one point, the judge, Col. Jeffery Nance, asked Bales why he killed the villagers. Bales responded: “Sir, as far as why — I’ve asked that question a million times since then. There’s not a good reason in this world for why I did the horrible things I did.” One of the prosecutors, Lt. Col. Jay Morse, raised concerns during the hearing that the soldier’s testimony contradicted what he earlier acknowledged in a signed “stipulation of facts” from that night. Bales testified Wednesday that he made the decision to kill each victim when he raised his gun and pointed it. But in the stipulation, Bales said he struggled with a woman before killing her and “after the tussle” decided to “murder anyone that he saw.” The judge questioned Bales

about it, and Bales confirmed that he decided to kill everyone after struggling with the woman. Nance also questioned Bales about some corpses that had been set on fire. Bales said he didn’t remember burning the bodies, but he recalled a kerosene lantern being in one of the rooms and a fire and having matches in his pocket when he returned to the remote base, Camp Belambay. Pressed by the judge on whether he set the bodies on fire with the lantern. Bales replied: “It’s the only thing that makes sense, sir.’” Earlier, defense attorney Emma Scanlan entered Bales’ pleas on his behalf. She entered one not guilty plea, to a charge that he impeded the investigation by breaking his laptop after he was taken into custody. That charge was later dropped, after the judge accepted the guilty plea. Survivors who testified by video link from Afghanistan during a hearing last fall vividly recalled the carnage. A young girl in a bright headscarf described hiding be-

hind her father as he was shot to death. Boys told of hiding behind curtains as others scrambled and begged the soldier to spare them, yelling: “We are children! We are children!” A thick-bearded man told of being shot in the neck by a gunman “as close as this bottle,” gesturing to a water bottle on a table in front of him. The massacre prompted such angry protests that the U.S. temporarily halted combat operations in Afghanistan, and it was three weeks before Army investigators could reach the crime scene. The deaths also raised questions about the frequency of combat deployments and posttraumatic stress disorder. Bales was serving his fourth deployment. Until the attacks, he had a good, if undistinguished, military record in a decade-long career. The Ohio native suffered from PTSD and a traumatic brain injury, his lawyers say, and he had been drinking contraband alcohol and snorting Valium — both provided by other soldiers — the night of the killings.

ground cover that plays nicely with other plants, Bell suggested European wild ginger. Its heartshaped, glossy, green leaves contrast with neighboring plants. Moss also acts as a ground cover in neutral to slightly acid soil. Other perennials that can be used in a shade garden include brunneras, tiarellas (foam flower), wood violets, columbines, bugbanes , and Jack-in-the-pulpits, which appreciate moist, conditions. shady Epimediums, lenten roses (hellebores), lilyturf, bigroot geraniums, and lamium perform well in dry shade, such as under maple trees and other trees with shallow root systems. Coleus, caladiums, begonias, cyclamen, perillas, and fuchsias are tender perennials or annuals that add color all summer and need to be kept moist. Adding colorful containers or garden art to a shade garden is another way to brighten up an all-green area, Bell said. Heucheras mixed with small ferns look good together in a colorful pot and are easy to maintain. When planting mixed containers, just make sure that the plants all require the same amount of shade and water, she cautioned.

They have a longer life span, require less water, are generally more hostile to weeds, and are easier to maintain. In general, plants with red, yellow, or orange flowers or leaves do well in deep or full shade. Those with green, blue, or purple flowers and foliage can take a little more sun. And white ground covers, if used sparingly, can highlight many shade-loving plants. Bell suggested using opposites on the color wheel to achieve the most dramatic effects.

Gospel singing group to appear The Northtowne Church of God will be hosting a gospel singing with the Manning Family on Sunday at 6 p.m. The church is located at 2008 Wapakoneta Ave. Pastor Tim Bartee invites the community to this special event. The Mannings are from Knoxville, Tenn., and travel weekly to churches throughout the united States. Their unique blend and dynamic voices are a blessing and encouragement, Bartee said. Mike Manning, his wife, Dawn, and their adult children,

and drink. Your father knows that you need these things ... but seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Seeking the Kingdom involves a willingness to turn toward God and to desire to follow God’s will. Trust is relying upon God’s character and goodness. It is believing that God does care, even despite the appearance of unfortucircumstances. nate Trust knows no social or economic boundaries. Trust also involves realizing that God is in control and we are not. Every day we can trust God to bring us through whatever challenges we face, and God will.

Ripples move out Ripples move out from tiny pebbles of faith cast into the water of history, and those tiny pebbles are magnified by God into giant and profound events. God is in control, yet God quite often uses seemingly insignificant people and simple acts of faithfulness to accomplish his purpose. In your times of trial and in your times of prosperity, trust in God, and you will not be disappointed. God may just use you mightily to change history! The writer is the pastor of Spring Creek Christian Church, Sidney.

PIQUA — The Cruizers for Christ Car Club will hold its Annual Classic Car, Truck and Motorcycle Benefit Show on June 15 at Gover Harley Davidson, U.S. 36, in Piqua. The event will run from noon to 5 p.m. and will feature participantjudged Top 30 trophies, a Driver’s Pot, door prizes, silent auction, bake sale, crafts and games for kids. Dash plates, goody bags and one free door prize ticket will be available for the first 50 registrants. As with all Cruizer benefit shows, 100 percent of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the designated recipient family. This year, the Cruizers are assisting 4-yearold Aiden Meyer. Aiden was diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis complex (TS) in 2008. TS is a rare genetic disease that occurs through a mutation of one of two genes in the body that are responsible for restricting tumor growth. Because of TS, Aiden’s body cannot prevent the formation of tumors that are now affecting his brain, heart, kidneys, skin and, most recently discovered, eyes. An onset of infantile epilepsy, triggered by the impact of TS on his brain, may soon lead to the possibility of brain surgery for Aiden.

Aiden Meyer Cruizers for Christ is a nonprofit, nondenominational group of classic car enthusiasts dedicated to glorifying God through service to families and individuals suffering through difficult circumstances. As noted by club member Joe Glass, “Through prayer and fellowship, we trust that God will put in our path a need that must be met. Aiden’s family is under a tremendous burden, and it’s our hope that through the benefit show we can raise the funds needed to assist with the medicines, procedures and physical mobility devices that are a part of his daily life.” For more information, contact Rose Ann at 4923203 or Julie at 6389162.

Sing-along fellowship set There will be a sing-along fellowship night Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Solid Rock Pentecostal Church of God, 2745 State Route 29 North. The women’s group of the church will furnish soup and sandwiches, for a small donation, as a money-making project. Pastor Anthony Krummrey and the congregation of Solid Rock invite everyone to attend. Church members said people who like to sing or listen to singing are encouraged to come to the event. And if they play an instrument, they should bring it along, too.

PIQUA — A summer kids event called “Sky” will be hosted at Spring Creek Baptist Church, 15333 E Miami-Shelby Road, from Monday to June 14. At “Sky,” faith and imagination soar as kids discover that everything is possible with God, organizers said. Kids participate in Bible-learning activities, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, make and dig into treats, experience Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them to trust God, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called “God Sightings.” Each day concludes with “Fly Away Finale” — a celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in for a special time on June 16 at 10:30 a.m. “Sky” is for children from 3 years old to sixth grade and will run from 6 to 8 p.m. each day. For more information, call (937) 773-4215.

Take refuge God then sent Elijah to take refuge with a poor widow — a person who could not take care of herself and her son let alone another person. In fact, she was out of food. Elijah, upon arriving, asked her for a cup of water and a small cake of bread. It turned out the widow was collecting sticks to light a fire so she could bake a little cake out of the last bit of flour and oil that she had, fully expecting that after this she and her son would then starve to death. Nevertheless, at the request of Elijah, she was willing to provide self-sacrificing hospitality. As it turned out, God worked a miracle, and that widow’s flour and oil never ran out all the time Elijah stayed with her. There was always enough for all three of them. No act of faithfulness is too small to be useable in the hand of God. Ahab, the arrogant king, on the other hand, never did change his ways or put his trust in God, and he eventually died a horrible death, as did his wicked wife, Jezebel. Elijah, however, went on to become one of Israel’s greatest prophets and has influenced countless lives for centuries. Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, said to his disciples, “Don’t worry about what you will eat

fected by the drought. Eventually his stream dried up, and the ravens quit coming. What would happen now? Could Elijah trust that God would provide? Elijah, like us, was prone to swings between courageous acts of faith and deep anxiety, but still God was faithful, as God always is, and took care of him. God will take care of us, too when we follow his will.

Father’s Day: a well-established tradition Even though Father’s Day is a more recent innovation, it is now celebrated with as much pride and love as Mother’s Day. Of course, there’s nothing really surprising about the significance of this celebration in today’s society, as fathers are playing an increasingly important role within the family in every imaginable way.

day) or Herrentag (gentlemen’s day), during which men leave on a hiking tour, pulling small wagons filled with alcohol and food in order to make merry. However Father’s Day is celebrated, the principal remains the same: it is a time to thank all dads for the love they show their families.

The idea of celebrating fatherhood originated in the United States at the beginning of the twentieth century, before President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day in 1924. Then, in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day. Fathers are now honoured on every continent around the world, but the date of the celebrations can differ from one place to another. Some countries, such as Italy, Portugal, and Spain, celebrate the event on March 19, which is also when the Catholic church celebrates St-Joseph’s feast day. The type of festivities also varies from country to country. Here in North America it is celebrated like a birthday, with Dad often being given little treats by Mum and the children in a private, family setting. In Germany some regions celebrate Männertag (men’s

Many companies realize that seniors may need products that can provide a safe and elderly-friendly environment. Some examples are stoves that sound an alarm or turn off automatically if a pot boils over; appliances with larger display panels; and appliances with easy-to-operate controls. During this month, I encourage you to take a few minutes and go through this checklist in your home and to correct any problems you may find.

COLUMBUS — Ohio is ranked 28th for senior health, according to the inaugural edition of United Health Foundation’s America’s Health Rankings Senior Report: “A Call to Action for Individuals and Their Communities.� United Health Foundation commissioned the America’s Health Rankings Senior Report to examine the health challenges affecting today’s seniors and to encourage the nation and local communities to find ways to improve senior health. Americans are living longer but sicker lives and America’s senior population is poised to grow more than 50 percent between 2015 and 2030, making senior health a timely and critical national issue.

• Low percentage of social support. Among all 50 states, Minnesota leads the nation for senior health, followed by Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Iowa. Mississippi ranks 50th, preceded by Oklahoma, Louisiana, West Virginia, and Arkansas. Older Americans are experiencing troubling rates of chronic health conditions, according to the Senior Report. About 80 percent of seniors are living with at least one chronic health condition, while 50 percent of seniors have two or more chronic health conditions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, the report finds that more than 25 percent of seniors nationwide are obese.


‘Chronic illness’

The report is the most comprehensive rankings to date of senior health on state and national levels and can be viewed and downloaded at w w w. a m e r i c a s This report builds on the annual America’s Health Rankings report which, for 23 years, has presented the definitive analysis of national health on a state-bystate basis by evaluating a historical and comprehensive set of health, environmental and socioeconomic data to determine national health benchmarks and state rankings. The America’s Health Rankings Senior Report assesses state-level performance on 34 different elements, including both health determinants and health outcomes. The report finds that Ohio has its share of strengths and challenges for senior health. Ohio’s strengths, according to the report, are: • Low prevalence of underweight seniors. • Low prevalence of activity-limiting arthritis pain. • High percentage of creditable drug coverage. Ohio’s challenges are: • High prevalence of obesity. • High rate of preventable hospitalizations.

“Chronic illness is unnecessarily high among seniors,� said Dr. Rhonda Randall, senior adviser to United Health Foundation and chief medical officer, UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement. “The coordination of care for seniors, particularly the 50 percent of the population with multiple chronic illnesses, is complex and increases pressure on our country’s caregivers and our health care system.� America’s Health Rankings Senior Report: “A Call to Action for Individuals and Their Communities,� offers a comprehensive analysis of senior population health on a national and state-by-state basis across 34 measures of senior health. In commissioning the report, United Health Foundation seeks to promote discussion around the health of Americans 65 years and older while driving communities, governments, stakeholders, families and individ-

uals to take action to improve senior health. Researchers drew data from more than 12 government agencies and leading research organizations to create a focused, uniquely rich data set for measuring senior health at the state level, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of Labor, The Dartmouth Atlas Project, the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger and the Commonwealth Fund.

Analysis In addition to producing the America’s Health Rankings Senior Report, United Health Foundation also produces the annual America’s Health Rankings report. For 23 years, America’s Health Rankings has provided an analysis of national health on a state-bystate basis by evaluating a historical and comprehensive set of health, environmental and socioeconomic data to determine national health benchmarks and state rankings. The Rankings employs a unique methodology, developed and annually reviewed by a Scientific Advisory Committee of leading public health scholars.

Memory / Thank You

In Loving Memory Of

Kathy Bodenmiller Smith who passed away June 6, 2004 God saw you were getting tired And a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you And whispered, “Come with me.” With tear-filled eyes we watched You suffer and fade away. Although we love you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.

Much loved and sadly missed by: Husband Gary, Sons Robert & Justin, Stacy (wife of Justin) Grandson Austin, Granddaughter Katie, Sisters Cheryl & Mary, Brothers, Greg & Terry, Sister in Laws Deb & Kay, Brother in Law David, Nieces and Nephews, Mother Betty & the late Bob Bodenmiller

State-bound Cummings twins cling to memories of their mom BY KEN BARHORST Recent graduates Olivia and Cole Cummings can look back and feel proud of their accomplishments, both in athletics and in life itself. The Fairlawn twins will both be competing in the Division III State Track Meet on Friday in Columbus, marking the end of one part of a journey that has certainly had its share of tough times. Back when the two were just eight years old — 10 years ago now — their mom, 1980 Fairlawn graduate Yvonne, died of cancer at the age of 41. “It was tough for both of us, especially for me because I’m a girl, and with two guys... But no, we just make it through, and my dad is great. He did a wonderful job and still does.” “I think about how she was when she was with us, and the memories we have,” said Cole. “It was a long time ago now. “Most of them were in the hospital when she was really sick,” said Olivia. “But I think we both think about her a lot.” Their dad Tim, who helps coach the track team at the school, said they put a penny in the casket when Yvonne was laid to rest. “Somebody told me that when you do that, every time you see a penny, you’ll think of Von,” Tim said. And as fate would have it, when Olivia and her dad were leaving the new track at Fairlawn after doing some leg work on Wednesday, Tim loked down and a saw a penny laying on the track. “I’ve never had that happen before,” he said. “What are the chances?” Olivia thinks they are good for her in Columbus, especially in the shot put. She is the school record-holder in both the shot and discus, but says her concentration is on the shot put. “I hope to be on the podium for both,” she said, “But I’ll concentrate on the shot. I’m excited. It’s an unbelievable experience going to state, especially if you make it to the podium. It makes you feel like you’re unstoppable, even if you’re like fifth or sixth. You can’t beat that feeling.” Cole is quite a story — he didn’t start throwing the discus until he was in the eighth grade. But he grew and put on a few pounds, and now looks like some school was cheated out of

TWINS COLE and Olivia Cummings take a break from a workout at the Fairlawn track Wednesday. The two will both be competing Friday in the Division III State Track Meet in Columbus, Olivia for the third consecutive year. a real good football player. “I won the County 100 in the eighth grade,” he recalled. “And I’m still a part of the 400 relay team that set a school record (high school). I’ve run the 400 and 800 relays all through high school. “But this year has been all about the disc,” he added. “I put on some weight. I can still run the hundred but I can’t run the 200.” He said he plans to be on the podium as well this week, thinking it will take 160 feet to get there. “My PR (personal record) is 162 and I’m throwing that pretty well right now,” he said. “You never know how it’s going to go over there.” Olivia will be competing in the state meet for the third time. She qualified in both events two years ago and in the shot put last year, when she placed third. The two girls that finished ahead of her last year are back again this year. And last season, the three were separated by only a little more than a foot. “It’s so competitive with those two girls,” she said. “I’m excited to go up against them again. It’s fun.” This is the first trip to state for Cole.

Olivia says she and her brother are ready for anything.” Oh, we’re ready,” she said. And they will have plenty of people cheering them on. “Even though we might not have always been the oldest, it seems like the other kids have always looked up to us, because we had to grow up so early. All those kids, they look up to us. They do. I mean, they call me ‘momma Liv.’ But it’s kinda nice when somebody’s looking up to you, I guess. I think we’ve both made our mark on our school, and that was our goal... to make our dad proud.” Olivia, who holds two records in volleyball for kills and aces, got a scholarship from Miami University in Oxford for track. She’ll throw the shot and discus, and also compete in the hammer throw, something she’s never done. “They think I’ll be good at it,” she said. No doubt. The two are part of an impressive group of athletes in track at Fairlawn. In all, the school will send six to the state meet. One of them, Trey Everett, will compete in three events,

and is a threat to win two of them, the long jump and the high jump. His 6-6 in the high jump is tied for the best height in the state this year, and the other jumper to clear 6-6 did it for the first time last week in the regional. Everett also has the second-best long jump distance going into Friday. An amazing athlete, Everett broke the County Meet record in the 110 hurdles this spring when he ran a 15.31, and in only his second time running the 400, he set a school record at 52.1. He is on the 800 relay team with Anthony Gillem, Jessie Hughes and Trey Fletcher, and they set the school record in that event this season. Gillem will also compete in the long jump. For Everett, his performance this spring may have something to do with concentrating on one sport. In the past, he’s always played baseball, too, since that’s his dad’s favorite. And he played well enough to earn All-County honors. “I really wanted to focus on track this year,” he said. “My dad said I could, but he said ‘you better do good.’” Mission accomplished.

Cueto goes back on disabled list CINCINNATI (AP) — Right-hander Johnny Cueto went back on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sore muscle behind his pitching shoulder, the second time this season that the Cincinnati Reds Cueto have lost their top starter to the injury. Cueto was scheduled to start the final game of a series against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. Instead, righthander Pedro Villarreal was called up from Triple-A Louisville to take his place. It was Villarreal’s turn to start for Louisville on Wednesday, making him the first choice for the promotion. He made one relief appear-

ance for the Reds at the end of last season. Cueto was on the disabled list from April 15 to May 19 with a strained muscle behind his right shoulder. He made three starts after his return, going 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA. He allowed only one hit in eight innings of a 6-0 win in Pittsburgh on Friday, but told the Reds afterward that he felt some discomfort in the same area during his final inning. “I thought it was going to be a momentary thing, something little, but it’s still early,” Cueto said after a workout Wednesday, with assistant trainer Tomas Vera translating. “We have a lot of the season to go, and I want to be able to help the team when they really need it.” Cueto said the problem is in roughly the same spot —

the bottom of the back of his shoulder — but not as severe. “It’s not even close to what it was,” Cueto said. “When I throw or play catch, I don’t feel anything. When I put more into it, I didn’t want to hurt it more.” The Reds waited until Wednesday to put him on the disabled list because they wanted to see if the soreness went away after his start in Pittsburgh. They finally chose the DL in hopes it will give the shoulder time to heal. “It’s the same thing he had before,” manager Dusty Baker said. “He felt it a little bit after he pitched in Pittsburgh. He told us after the game he felt it. It’s not as bad as last time. We want to be precautious with it.” Baker said the Reds are optimistic that Cueto can return in two weeks.

“He doesn’t have to go back to square one like he did the last time,” Baker said. “He’ll continue training.” The Reds also told outfielder Chris Heisey that he’ll start a rehab assignment on Friday in Louisville. Heisey became the starter in left field after Ryan Ludwick tore cartilage in his right shoulder while sliding into third base on opening day. Heisey pulled his right hamstring and went on the disabled list April 29. He was close to returning when he pulled it again. “I just feel better,” Heisey said. “I know it’s better. Looking back, I probably rushed it. It’s ready to play.” Heisey expects to play several games at Louisville, given that he’s been sidelined for so long.

Adam Niemeyer

Minster High School senior Adam Niemeyer was named the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association Division IV Player of the Year in the All-Ohio voting by the coaches. Niemeyer led the Wildcats to a 21-3 record and was the area’s top pitcher with a 1.05 earned run average. He has signed to play baseball next spring at Ohio State.

Throttle Up/Throttle Down

TONY STEWART After nine straight doubledigit finishes, Stewart finished seventh at Charlotte and then rallied Sunday to score his first victory of the year. He suddenly looks like Chase material. DENNY HAMLIN Hamlin’s hopes of making the Chase took a double hammer blow Sunday. He blew a tire late in the race and finished 34th, dropping two spots in points to 26th. And Tony Stewart won the race, giving Hamlin another major competitor for Chase wild card spots. Compiled and written by Mike Hembree. Follow Mike on Twitter: @mikehembree.

Statement Win

Tony Stewart makes move late, wins FedEx 400 in Dover By MIKE HEMBREE

Jimmie Johnson should have won. Juan Pablo Montoya could have won. The winner, however, was Tony Stewart, a guy who needed it more than perhaps any other driver. Stewart roared to the front late in the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks Sunday at Dover International Speedway, taking the lead from Montoya with three laps remaining and scoring his first win in what has been a troubled season for the three-time champion. Stewart’s car improved dramatically over the second half of the race, and he was in position to steal the victory when Johnson made a rare late-race mistake and Montoya’s strong car faltered near the finish. The victory significantly enhanced Stewart’s chances of making the Chase and perhaps will put a damper on persistent garage-area rumors — denied with some anti-media intensity by Stewart Sunday — that he has been trolling the garage for possible crew-chief replacements after a disappointing start to the season.

The Kyle Busch Conundrum Call it the Kyle Busch Conundrum. Busch has been a menace in the NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck series this year. A full-time Sprint Cup driver and thus ineligible to win the championship in Nationwide or Truck, Busch nevertheless has been dipping into those two series to cart away money, wins and prestige. In the past 10 Nationwide and Truck races in which he has participated, Busch has won seven times. He drove in both the Nationwide and Truck races over the weekend at Dover, winning the Truck race Friday and dominating Saturday’s Nationwide race before late-race pit strategy cost him yet another victory. But, on the other side of the garage-area fence, in the much more important Sprint Cup world,


42 Years of Professional Service

Busch has unfinished business. In a system in which the top 10 drivers in the point standings qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Busch sits ninth halfway through the “regular season.” Before a fourth-place run Sunday at Dover, he was 11th. Through the season’s seventh race at Texas (one he won), Busch stood second in points and was enjoying a string of five consecutive top-5 finishes. Then the bottom fell out. An accident at Kansas left him 38th. He was 24th at Richmond and 37th at Talladega before rebounding with a sixth at Darlington. Then there was Charlotte, where Busch was at the center of one of the most unusual circumstances in recent NASCAR history. With

Busch in the lead relatively early in the Coca-Cola 600, a rope supporting an overhead television camera snapped and fell on the track, slicing through the right front of Busch’s Toyota and also damaging several other cars. After significant repair work by his Joe Gibbs Racing team, Busch rallied from that situation to stay out front, but he eventually finished 38th after an engine failure. Although his talent is beyond question, Busch hasn’t come close to scoring his sport’s biggest prize — the Cup championship. He was fifth in points — his best finish — in 2007, his final season at Hendrick Motorsports before his move to Gibbs. He has 26 Cup wins but won’t be satisfied until he crosses that last hurdle.

Teams are normally on one extreme or the other. You don’t find teams that are in the middle of the road on Pocono. It’s like a small road course with left-hand turns. You compromise, but you still have to be good in all three corners. If you give up one corner you better be exceptional in the other two. I like it because after the repave, it’s a very smooth track, and everybody likes smooth tracks just because it makes it easier to work on the cars. You still have the three corners, but there is a ton of speed.” NATIONWIDE SERIES

Classic Moments Pocono Raceway A triangular-shaped 2.5-mile layout with three distinct corners all banked at various degrees, Pocono Raceway generally poses a stiff challenge for drivers and crew chiefs alike. That’s especially true for newcomers to the tricky Pennsylvania layout. Unless your name is Denny Hamlin. Making his first appearance at Pocono as a Cup Series rookie in 2006, Hamlin won the Pocono 500 after leading 83 of 200 laps and winning the pole in what was then a Joe Gibbs Racing Chevy. Six weeks later, Hamlin and his Mike Ford-led team returned to Pocono and earned the same stunning result: victory from the pole. Only, in that race, the rookie driver led even more laps — 151 of the 200-lap race distance. Hamlin, whose Pocono wins were his only ones as a rookie, would go on to make the Chase for the Championship and finish his first full season an impressive third in the final standings. Hamlin has won at Pocono twice more since his 2006 double, but no driver, including Hamlin, has since managed to pull off the seasonal sweep.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Denny Hamlin needs wins to crack the top 20 and qualify for the Chase. His four wins at Pocono prove this is the place to get his playoff hopes back on track. Pretty Solid Pick: No active driver can top Jeff Gordon’s six wins at Pocono. Good Sleeper Pick: Kurt Busch and Furniture Row Racing have proven legit. A quirky track like Pocono can make for a quirky winner like Busch, who has two victories on the tri-oval. Runs on Seven Cylinders: Kyle Busch’s 16 Cup starts at Pocono have netted zero wins and and only five top 10s. Insider Tip: A win for either Hamlin or Gordon would be absolutely huge. Playoff implications lie in Pocono’s two summer dates.

lead pack as David Gilliland (car No. 38) and Ryan Newman (39), racing for 26th place, tangled and parked for the day. Newman had been aggressively trying to pass Gilliland for several laps before finally bumping him up the track and into the wall. Gilliland then slid down the track and into Newman’s car. Gilliland said Newman lacked patience and was “too aggressive.” Newman refused to comment. THINGS BREAK The Toyota engine problem that has reared its ugly head several times this season bit Matt Kenseth again Sunday. Kenseth led 29 laps but parked on lap 159 while leading when his engine started coughing smoke. He had a dominant car in the Daytona 500 but finished 37th after exiting the race with engine trouble. Toyota’s Martin Truex Jr. also blew an engine in Sunday’s race. THREE IS A MAGIC NUMBER Jeff Gordon matched his best finish of the season by closing strong for a thirdplace run at Dover. He also finished third at Martinsville and Darlington. The finish lifted Gordon four places in points to 11th and keeps him in the Chase discussion. “It’s certainly a great feeling,” Gordon said. “We have been running good. We just have had some things happen to us, kind of like last year, some selfinflicted and some things out of our hands.” SORRY ABOUT THAT FOX Sports used the Dover pre-race drivers meeting to apologize for a camera cable issue that interrupted last week’s Coca-Cola 600. Camera support roping snapped during the race, damaging several cars and injuring about a dozen fans in the stands. FOX director Artie Kempner, addressing drivers and officials, thanked NASCAR for its work in correcting the problem and said the network is there to cover the race, not play a role in it.

Some big names could be on the hot seat RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez stretches during a workout Wednesday at the Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa, Fla. Major League Baseball has begun interviewing players linked to a Miami anti-aging clinic that allegedly sold performance-enhancing drugs and became the focus of the sport's investigation. Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon are among more than a dozen players whose names have been tied to the now-closed clinic, Biogenesis of America. every interest in both defending the rights of players and in defending the integrity of our joint (drug) program. We trust that the commissioner’s office shares these interests.” MLB has been seeking the cooperation of Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch since Miami New Times reported in January that it obtained what the paper said were records detailing drug purchases by Rodriguez, Cabrera, Cruz and Colon. Yahoo Sports reported that Braun, the 2011 NL MVP, was mentioned in the records. MLB sued Biogenesis and its operators in a Florida court in March, an attempt to pressure Bosch. A person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that Bosch agreed to talk to MLB, a deal first reported by ESPN. MLB

wants to speak with Bosch in the next few days, “Due to ongoing litigation, it would be inappropriate to comment on any aspect of this matter at this time,” Bosch’s lawyer, Susy Ribero-Ayala, said in a statement. Among the players linked to the clinic, Cabrera, Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal already have served 50game suspensions following positive tests for testosterone announced by MLB last year. “It looks like it could be getting to the bottom of this and finding some information that hopefully would help Major League Baseball as far as cleaning this game up,” said San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy, who managed Cabrera last year. “I always thought they should be a little stricter to keep these players from trying to beat the system

and cheat. I’m all for stiffer penalties.” Once MLB interviews Bosch and the players, it will have to determine what penalties to impose. “WADA commends the decision of Major League Baseball to seek suspension of an esti20 players,” mated World Anti-Doping Agency Director General David Howman said in a statement. “More and more, information and evidence gathered in the investigative process is proving an effective means of uncovering doping in sport. MLB has approached this issue in a professional way, and the evidence gathered will undoubtedly be pivotal,” Howman said. Any suspensions for first offenders would be put on hold if the union files a grievance, a process that would put the matter in front of an arbitrator and delay pos-

MVP, has been working out since May at the team’s minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., and he drove past reporters without stopping when he arrived and left three hours later Wednesday after batting practice, fielding and agility drills. In addition to Rodriguez, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli was linked to the clinic. Cervelli, currently on the DL because of a broken hand, said he consulted Biogenesis for a foot injury, but didn’t receive any treatment. “My focus is not on what MLB is investigating. I don’t want to get caught up in that,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “My job is to manage the guys in the clubhouse.” Girardi said the Yankees still planned for Rodriguez to rejoin the team after the All-Star break. Asked what he would do if A-Rod were suspended 100 games, responded: Girardi “We’ll cross that bridge.” Braun’s 50-game suspension for a positive test was overturned by an arbitrator in February 2012 after the union filed a grievance and challenged the handling of his urine sample. Braun has acknowledged he was mentioned in Biogenesis records because his lawyers used Bosch as a consultant during the grievance. After the Brewers’ 43, 10-inning win over Oakland at Miller Park on Tuesday night, the 2011 NL MVP said he was finished talking about the clinic. “I’ve already addressed everything related to the Miami situation. I addressed it in spring training. I will not make any further statements about it,” he said.

Strong pitching gives Post 217 first win, 2-1 Sidney Post 217 took on the Troy Bombers Tuesday night and came away with a 2-1 victory behind the pitching of Patterson and Bobby Benshoff. Those two allowed just one hit over eight innings, and Jacob Lochard got a save by pitching the ninth. Sidney got a run in the second innng and added an insurance run in the seventh. Cole Proffitt led Sidney with three hits in as many trips, Isaiah Counts had a home run and Bailey Francis doubled. “We got another

strong pitching performance,” said coach Jason McLain. “Hitting is still suspect. We need to get the bats going if we’re going to win. Right now, we staying in games due to our pitching. “We’ve been able to get good looks at most of our players and we’re going to be making some hard decisions soon to get down to the 18-man roster,” he added. “Right now we have 28 guys and every one of them can play. It’s nice to see so much talent come out for Sidney Legion.” Sidney, now 1-2, lost over the weekend to Prospect Legion, 2-0.

Post 217 was outhit by Prospect 9-4. Jacob Wenning had two hits to lead Sidney. “It was a pitchers dual the entire game,” said McLain. “Jace Barga pitched a great game against a good-hitting team. He kept us in the game and gave us the chance to win it. We had two opportunities to win the game but we’ve been struggling to get the big hit or string multiple hits together. We’re just waiting for the bats to wake up.” Sidney returns to action tonight at home against Napoleon at 6 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — One by one, for three weeks already, players accompanied by their lawyers have been summoned to interviews as part of baseball’s latest investigation into performance-enhancing drugs — and the process is a long way from finished. Some pretty big names, led by Alex Rodriguez, could be on the hot seat. A-Rod, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon are among the 20 or so players who may be disciplined for their links to the now-closed Miami anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis of America. The players’ union says it has been assured no decisions regarding discipline will be made until the interviews are completed. “It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations,” union head Michael Weiner said in a statement Wednesday. And it appears the process has a while to run. Interviews with players started three weeks ago and are scheduled until the end of June, according to people with knowledge of the process who spoke on condition of anonymity because statements on those details weren’t authorized. Dan Halem, Steven Gonzalez and Patrick Houlilawyers in han, baseball’s labor relations department, conducted several interviews, and some players haven’t been scheduled. “Every player has been or will be represented by an attorney from the players’ association,” Weiner said. “The players’ association has
