ABOUT 100 yards from the finish line in the Botkins 5K Saturday a dog named Zoey decided she was not going to cross the finish line with Leah Schmerge, of Botkins, and sat down in the midst of the other runners. Leah said that Zoey loves to run with her, but today’s race must have scared her and Zoey wanted nothing to do with the finish line.

Ideal weather for Botkins Carousel Crowd enjoys Friday night dance BY RACHEL LLOYD There was a bit of a chill in the air Friday night, but overall the weekend weather was ideal for the annual Botkins Carousel festival. “It was a wonderful weekend,” Audrey Gutman, one of the even organizers, said Sunday after as the festival started to wind down. “We couldn’t have asked for anything better.” Gutman said although Friday evening was a little chilly, the numbers held steady from last year, with one of the featured events of the evening, an open air dance, well attended.

“The dance Friday night had a DJ as opposed to a band this year,” Gutman said. “It was a little chilly, but we had about the same crowd. People liked making requests and hearing just the song they wanted to hear.” As always, Friday night’s real highlight was the pageant, which includes not only the talent of the contestants, but also entertainers filling in to keep the crowd between pageant segments. “All the talent was local talent,” Gutman said. “It’s a fun thing to see people returning home and being able to participate in the festival.” Saturday turned out even better.

“Saturday night had a wonderful crowd,” Gutman said. “It was a great night with wonderful weather. I don’t have a number, but it was one of the biggest crowds we’ve ever had.” She said the evening’s featured entertainment, Tricky Dick and the Coverups, is a great, high-energy group. “No one’s ever bored when they’re watching them.” Saturday’s chicken dinner, sponsored by the CYM, sold out, and the mechanical bull rides were popular with the kids early on, then were joined by the braver among the grownups later, Gutman said.

After an absence of 50 years from Sidney High School academic rosters, an agriculture/food and science techology (vo-ag) program will once again be part of class curriculum. The new program is being established through a joint venture of Sidney City Schools and Upper Valley Career Center. The creation of the program, said Sidney Superintendent John Scheu, has been on ongoing process for about 18 months. “This all started with Gene Gooding (former high school principal),” said Scheu. “He did a survey and he was surprised at the positive reaction of the parents and students to starting a vo-ag program at the school. “There is a big potential, big opportunities with the program,” he said. “The food industries in the county are solidly behind this program.” Upper Valley Career Center is created a pathways for agribusiness and production and food science and technology as part of the school’s curriculum. The program will operate at Sidney High School as a satellite offering of the Career Center. Kreg McCulloch has been hired by the Upper Valley Career Center to teach the program. Pathway courses for Argibusiness and production include agriculture, food and natural resources; animal science and technology; plant and horticulture science; agronomic systems; animal nutrition; health and reproduction; business management; greenhouse and nursery management; livestock science; and meat science.

Why is the expiring 9.9 mill levy being replaced? Editor's note: In preparation for the August special election, the Sidney Daily News, in conjunction with the Citizens for Sidney Schools levy committee, will be publishing a question of the week to inform voters about the five-year, 1 percent income tax levy. Why is it necessary to replace the expiring 9.9 mill levy? The 9.9 emergency property tax Levy will expire in 2013 (last collection in 2014). In 2008 a 0.8 mill permanent improvement levy expired and in 2010 a 4.73 mill emergency levy failed to renew. Since then, major incremental cuts in expenditures were made totalling $6.6 million per year. Without these cuts, the annual expenses for 2013 would be $37.1 million instead of $30.9. The most significant event was the concessions in salary and benefits



(5.8 percent salary reduction/benefits increase) made by teachers in 2011-12 to the extent of $2 million per year. This was the largest pay reduction in the state of Ohio. All salaries are frozen until 2015. The staff was cut from 500 to 401. During this period of historic cuts, all day kindergarten was added, a math teacher and an economics course were added at the high school, unified arts programs were expanded at the elementary schools, and security has been enhanced, all without additional taxes. Just recently an Agricultural/Food Services and Technology program has been added which directly relates to the strong presence of agriculture and food supply opportunities in our community. Whether financial comparisons are

made with our own data or to comparable districts, our current financial performance is solid and we ask taxpayers to review it. Our school’s continued positive fiscal outlook is contingent on passage of the 1 percent income tax levy on Aug. 6. This action will allow the 9.9 mill property tax funding to be replaced by a new method of funding. It will allow the district to continue to run efficiently, effectively and within the same budget that we are working with today. Please let us know what additional information is desired to make an informed decision. The only question we fear is the one that is not asked. The district's five-year fiscal forecast can be found at Additional levy information is at

Dogs, owners protest PARIS (AP) — Some Parisians want just a little bit more of their city to go to the dogs. At least 100 pooches — with owners in tow, holding leashes — marched near the Louvre at a demonstration to demand more park space and access to public transportation for the four-legged friends. Tongues and tails wagged Saturday under a warm Paris sun as collies, pugs, boxers, bulldogs, Labradors and other breeds paraded around the famed Paris museum.

Family visits Mandela J O HA N N E S B U R G (AP) — Nelson Mandela received visits from family members on Sunday at a hospital where the former president and anti-apartheid leader was being treated for a recurring lung infection, while South Africans expressed their appreciation for a man widely regarded as the father of the nation. There was no official update on 94-year-old Mandela after his second night in the hospital. His condition was described as “serious but stable” on Saturday. The office of President Jacob Zuma had said that Mandela was taken to a Pretoria hospital after his condition deteriorated at around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday. The anti-apartheid leader has now been taken to a hospital four times since December, with the last discharge coming on April 6 after

doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and drained fluid from his lung area. Members of Mandela’s family on Sunday were seen visiting the Pretoria hospital where he is believed to be staying. They included Makaziwe Mandela, the eldest of the ex-leader’s three surviving children, and Ndileka Mandela, one of his 17 grandchildren. Worshippers at a Sunday church service in the Johannesburg township of Soweto prayed for the recovery of Mandela, who was freed in 1990 after 27 years as a prisoner of white racist rule and won election to the presidency in all-race elections in 1994. He retired from public life years ago and had received medical care at his Johannesburg home until his latest transfer to a hospital.

Digital technology threatens drive-in theaters CLEVELAND (AP) — The survival of drive-in theaters is being threatened as movie studios abandon film, forcing drive-in owners to switch to expensive digital equipment. No one has a handle on how many of the country’s 357 drive-ins, including the 29 in Ohio, will choose to go digital to survive, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Sunday. But some drivein owners are declining to buy the necessary $70,000 projectors and won’t have movies to show once the film supply ends later this year. Ohio’s 29 drive-ins tie the state with New York for the second most outdoor drive-ins in the country, topped only by Pennsylvania with 30, according to the United Drive-in Theater Association. But owners around the country have to decide whether to invest the money in a digital system

or go under, said D. Edward Vogel, secretary of the association and owner of Bengies Drive-In in Baltimore. Studios will save about a billion dollars a year by no longer putting movies both on film and digital hard drives, according to Pat Corcoran of the National Association of Theatre Owners. Most indoor theaters made the transition to digital years ago. But many outdoor theaters delayed buying the expensive technology due to the costs of projectors and other improvements including 24-hour air conditioning to keep the units cool. Drive-ins pay also more than three times as much for the digital system as indoor theaters do because the giant screens require larger projectors. Owners of two theaters in Mansfield in northern Ohio already have decided not to make the switch, but the Aut-O-

Rama Drive-In in North Ridgeville near Cleveland installed a digital system for its two screens in April. Co-owner Deb Sherman said they had to take out a loan, but that it was “something we had to do.” Rich Reding, co-owner of the Lynn Drive-In Movie in Strasburg, south of Massillon, said they could afford the new equipment for only one screen, but that it “was time to move up or move out.” While the average admission at drive-ins is only about $5, many fans consider the outdoor theaters more than just places to see movies at lower prices. “You can relax here, be yourself,” said Natasha Peters, of Mount Gilead, who recently attended the Sunset drive-in in Mansfield with several nieces and nephews. “You don’t have to dress up,” Peters, 39, said.

“You don’t have to hire a baby sitter. The kids put on their pajamas and treat it like an adventure.” She was disappointed that the Sunset is one of the drive-ins that will be closing. Fundraising campaigns have helped some drive-ins around the country survive. In Shelton, Wash., $40,000 was raised to help the Skyline Drive-In switch to the new technology, and the Fairlee Motel & Drive-in Theater in Vermont is running a fundraising campaign. But the number of drive-ins is dwindling. While the industry managed to survive a downturn in the 1970s and 1980s — with 42 new ones built nationally since 1990 and 62 others reopening during that period — it peaked in the 1950s with 5,000 locations was reduced to 750 in 1990.

People choosing natural burials AKRON (AP) — Laura Buzzelli lived her life with a respect for the environment. So she wanted to show that same respect in death, too. Buzzelli, who died of complications from cancer in March 2009, was buried in a nature preserve with no embalming, no elaborate casket and no burial vault. It was her wish, which she expressed to her husband, Ken, about six weeks before she died. “My first thought . was, wow. This is really different. I don’t know,” recalled Ken Buzzelli, who lives in Brecksville. Now he embraces his wife’s decision to be buried at Foxfield

Preserve, a natural burial ground adjacent to the Wilderness Center in southwestern Stark County. He takes comfort in knowing the choice suited Laura, who loved nature, made her own garden compost and recycled long before others were doing it. The Buzzellis are among a small but growing group who are eschewing conventional burial in favor of greener alternatives. No statistics are available on natural burials, but “there’s definitely a move afoot,” said Joe Sehee, founder of the Green Burial Council. He points to a 2007 study by AARP, in which 21 percent of people 50 and older ex-

pressed a preference for green burial. Baby boomers are likely to increase the demand, said Sara Starr, who works with families and promotes Foxfield Preserve as its steward. Boomers are “very comfortable with breaking with convention,” she said. “I think the baby boom generation will want to die in the same way they lived.” Sehee said green burial and natural burial are interchangeable terms for what his organization defines as a way of caring for the dead that furthers one or more environmental aims, such as reducing energy use or avoiding toxic chemicals.

New bald eagle nests confirmed Shipwreck found in Lake Superior from 2012 when the state estimated 210 nests in 62 of Ohio’s 88 counties that hatched an estimated 321 eaglets. Ohio had four confirmed eagle nests in 1979. One of the new nests in Summit County was built in the Gorge Metro Park between Akron and Cuyahoga Falls, and another is on parkowned land in Clinton in southern Summit County, said Michael Johnson, chief of natural resources for Metro Parks, Serving Summit County. Johnson said two eaglets appear to be in the Clinton nest, but offi-


AKRON (AP) — Three more pairs of bald eagles have built nests in remote and inaccessible areas in northeast Ohio, according to parks officials and biologists. The new nests are in Summit County, and officials say the latest finds bring the number of bald eagle nests in that county to four, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources estimates at least 190 active eagle nests in the state, but says the number of eaglets in 2013 has not been estimated. The number of active nests is down slightly

cials are unsure if the Gorge nest hatched chicks. The other new nest is in Steiner Woods, a 23acre property the University of Akron owns next to the Bath Nature said Preserve, spokesman and biology professor Greg Smith. Officials do not know how many eaglets might be in the Bath Township nest, he said. A bald eagle nest has existed at Nimisila Reservoir in Green for several years. There have been reports for four years of eagles along the Cuyahoga River north of Akron, but no nests were initially found. Bald eagles are continuing to grow in number and showing a growing ability to coexist with humans that wildlife experts did not

think they possessed years ago, Johnson said. But park officials strongly encourage people to stay away from the nests and not scare off the eagles. The new nests were announced this past week, but park district workers repairing a trail discovered the Gorge nest last spring, and spotted the eagles and the nest in a tree near the Cuyahoga River. A park district biologist discovered the Clinton nest a month ago in the Clinton Conservation Area that includes a swampy flood plain along the Tuscarawas River. Longtime birdwatcher Marie Morgan of Akron, said she was “stunned and just so excited” by the discoveries of the nests.


DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Nearly 100 years after the Henry B. Smith freighter went down during a November storm in Lake Superior, a group of shipwreck hunters believes it has found the ship — and much of it is largely intact. The Duluth News Tribune reported the group found the wreck last month in about 535 feet of water off the shore of Marquette, Mich. The group says it hasn’t seen the name of the ship on the wreck yet, but all signs indicate it’s the Smith, sitting amid a spilled load of iron ore. “It’s the most satisfying find of my shipwreckhunting career,” said Jerry Eliason, of Cloquet, part of the group that has found many lost ships in recent years. “It’s a fantastic find,” said maritime historian Frederick Stonehouse, of Marquette, who has written about the Smith. “I’m excited at the opportunity to look at the video and see if we can learn the cause of the wreck, to write the final chapter of the ship.” The Henry B. Smith and its crew of 25 disappeared after sailing into the Great Lakes Storm of 1913. The storm, one of the biggest on the lakes, wrecked more than a dozen ships and killed about 250 sailors. The Smith was safe in the Marquette harbor on Nov. 7 and 8, and loading iron ore, but on the evening of Nov. 9, Capt. James Owen decided to leave port for Cleveland. “The lake was still rolling, but there seemed to be a lull in the wind, the velocity having dropped to 32 mph,” shipwreck expert and longtime University of Minnesota Duluth professor Julius Wolff wrote in “Lake Superior Shipwrecks.”

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, June 10, the 161st day of 2013. There are 204 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 10, 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed into law the Equal Pay Act of 1963, aimed at eliminating wage disparities based on gender. The same day, Kennedy delivered a commencement address at American University in Washington, D.C., in which he declared, “If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make the world safe for diversity.” On this date: • In 1692, the first official execution resulting from the Salem witch trials in Massachusetts took place as Bridget Bishop was hanged. • In 1861, during the Civil War, Confederate troops routed Union soldiers in the Battle of Big Bethel in Virginia. • In 1907, eleven men in five cars set out from the French embassy in Beijing on a race to Paris. (Prince Scipione Borghese of Italy was the first to arrive in the French capital two months later.) • In 1921, President Warren G. Harding signed into law the Budget and Accounting Act, which created the Bureau of the Budget and the General Accounting Office. • In 1922, singer-actress Judy Garland was born Frances Ethel Gumm in Grand Rapids, Minn. • In 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in Akron, Ohio by Dr. Robert Holbrook Smith and William Griffith Wilson. • In 1940, Italy declared war on France and Britain; Canada declared war on Italy. In 1942, during World War II, German forces massacred 173 male residents of Lidice, Czechoslovakia, in retaliation for the killing of Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich. • In 1967, the Middle East War ended as Israel and Syria agreed to observe a United Nationsmediated cease-fire.

OUT OF THE BLUE Baby just couldn’t wait CHICAGO (AP) — Melissa Jones almost made it. The suburban Chicago mom was heading to the hospital to give birth. She got as far as the hospital’s driveway, but her daughter just wasn’t going to wait any longer to come into the world. While nurses rushed out and her children looked on, Jones delivered her baby in the family’s minivan Thursday — just feet from the front door of Northwestern’s Prentice Women’s Hospital in downtown Chicago. A doctor leaving work assisted with the front-seat delivery, calling out for gloves and blankets. “All I could do was hold onto the dashboard and the side of the car” and push, said 30-year-old Jones of Calumet City. Earlier that evening, Jones was at work as a restaurant cashier at a downtown Chicago hotel when she started having contractions. She called her fiance, Marcus Ross, and asked him to come get her, then made sure one more customer got his order, a milkshake. Meanwhile, Ross put the four children in the couple’s minivan and headed into the city. The plan was to head to the suburban hospital where they’d planned to deliver. His mother would meet them there and they’d hand off the children to her.

NSA claims know-how to ensure no illegal spying BY KIMBERLY DOZIER The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The supersecret agency with the power and legal authority to gather electronic communications worldwide to hunt U.S. adversaries says it has the technical know-how to ensure it’s not illegally spying on Americans. But mistakes do happen in data-sifting conducted mostly by machines, not humans. Sometimes, former intelligence officials say, that means intelligence agencies destroy material they should not have seen, passed to them by the Fort Meade, Md.-based National Security Agency. The eavesdropping, codebreaking agency is fighting

back after last week’s revelations in the media of two surveillance programs that have raised privacy concerns. One program collects hundreds of millions of U.S. phone records. The second gathers audio, video, email, photographic and Internet search usage of foreign nationals overseas, and probably some Americans in the process, who use major providers such as Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Yahoo. The programs were first reported in a series of articles published by The Guardian newspaper. On Sunday it identified Edward Snowden, a 29year-old American who works as contract employee at the National Security Agency, as the source of the disclosures.

The newspaper said it was publishing the identity of Snowden, a former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, at his request. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he was quoted as saying. The National Security Agency filed a criminal report with the Justice Department earlier this week in relation to the leaks. The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, has stated repeatedly that the NSA’s programs do not target U.S. citizens and that the agency uses a process known as “minimization” to sift out data from “any U.S. persons whose communica-

tions might be incidentally intercepted.” His statement Saturday said that “the dissemination of information about U.S. persons is expressly prohibited unless it is necessary to understand foreign intelligence … is evidence of a crime or indicates a threat of death or serious bodily harm.” While the NSA has deferred any public comment to Clapper, it did offer an internal article written by director of compliance John DeLong, who is in charge of making sure the NSA protects Americans’ privacy. DeLong writes that privacy protections are being written into the technology that sifts the information, “which allows us to augment — not wholly replace — human safeguards.”

Obama, Xi signal new start with walk in the desert BY JULIE PACE The Associated Press PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — It may not have been Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev’s Cold War walk by a frozen lake in Switzerland. But President Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s 50-minute stroll through an estate in the California desert could mark a notable moment in the relationship between the heads of the world’s two largest economies. At the very least, it was a rare opportunity Saturday for the presidents to dispense with their advisers — and coats and ties in the scorching heat — for extended one-on-one talks. Tom Donilon, Obama’s national security adviser who helped orchestrate the two-day summit, said the walk was an important moment “to establish and deepen their personal relationship” and address “the range of issues that we have to address.” It’s a big list that includes cyberspying and intellectual property theft and North Korea’s nuclear provocations, as well as economic competition and climate change. There were no policy breakthroughs as Obama and Xi sauntered across the manicured lawns of the Sunnylands estate or when they sat on the

California redwood bench that Obama had custom-made as a gift for his Chinese counterpart. But both countries appeared to leave California pleased that the issues were addressed candidly and the groundwork was laid for future talks. The leaders “did not shy away from differences,” said Yang Jiechi, Xi’s senior foreign policy adviser, adding that Obama and Xi “blazed a new trail” in the relationship between their countries. Obama and Xi held more than eight hours of talks over the course of the two-day summit, which closed Saturday afternoon. The leaders found common ground in their frustrations over North Korea’s provocations and on climate change, agreeing to work together to reduce the use of hydrofluorocarbons, a potent greenhouse gas used in refrigerators, air conditioners and industrial applications. But there was no accord over cybersecurity, which U.S. officials see as perhaps the most pressing issue facing the two nations. Obama confronted Xi with specific evidence of intellectual property theft the U.S. says is emanating from China. Xi said China was also a victim of cyberattacks but did not publicly acknowledge his own country’s alleged activities.

Libya army chief resigns TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — One of Libya’s highest military officers resigned Sunday after clashes between protesters and a government-aligned militia he was in charge of left 31 people dead in the eastern city of Benghazi, the deadliest such violence in a country where armed factions hold sway. The bloodshed underscored the growing public anger over the government’s failure to build an army capable of reining in the militias that dominate parts of the country nearly two years after the fall of Moammar Gadhafi. The militias have become bolder in trying to shape Libya’s politics. The violence erupted Saturday when protesters in Benghazi, the country’s second largest city, stormed the main camp of Libya Shield, a largely Islamist grouping of militias that are paid by the government to help maintain security.

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, accused in the Trayvon Martin shooting, leaves a Seminole County courtroom at the end of a pretrial hearing, in Sanford, Fla., Saturday. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson halted the hearing Saturday after an audio expert was unable to testify because he was stuck at an airport.

Attorney walks tight line in defense BY MIKE SCHNEIDER The Associated Press SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman’s lead attorney will be walking a fine line as he tries to convince jurors that his client didn’t murder Trayvon Martin: He needs to show why Zimmerman felt threatened by the AfricanAmerican teenager while avoiding the appearance that either he or his client is racist. Because there is no dispute that Zimmerman shot Martin, 17, during a fight on a rainy night in February 2012, Mark O’Mara must convince the jury that Zimmerman pulled his 9 mm handgun and fired a bullet into the Miami-area high school student’s chest because he feared for his life and that the fear was caused by Martin’s actions, not his race. Jury selection begins Monday in the second-degree murder trial, which is expected to last about six weeks. Martin’s killing drew worldwide attention as it sparked a national debate about race, equal justice under the law and gun control. If convicted, Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, could get a life sentence. Under Florida law, Zimmerman, 29, could lawfully shoot

Martin in self-defense if it was necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. O’Mara has to be careful how he characterizes Martin, said Randy McClean, an Orlando-area defense attorney. “Mr. O’Mara’s challenge is to show Trayvon wasn’t profiled, that Zimmerman either saw something that looked suspicious or something else that caused him to make contact with Trayvon.” The challenge for prosecutors trying to get a second-degree murder conviction, meanwhile, is that they must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that while Zimmerman’s actions weren’t premeditated, they demonstrated a “depraved mind” that didn’t consider the threat his actions had toward human life. McClean and another Orlando defense attorney, David Hill, predicted that prosecutors will attack Zimmerman, who was employed at a mortgage risk management firm, as a frustrated, would-be police officer who had a chip on his shoulder. Zimmerman had studied criminal justice at a community college and had volunteered to run his community’s neighborhood watch program.

Fort Hood suspect’s paralysis could slow trial BY ANGELA K. BROWN The Associated Press FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The paralysis-related health problems of the Army psychologist charged with carrying out the deadly attack on Fort Hood could significantly slow the pace of his upcoming court-martial, including delays for stretch breaks and fewer daily hours for testimony. Maj. Nidal Hasan was left paralyzed from the abdomen down when police shot him during the Nov. 5, 2009, attack on the Texas Army post that left 13 people dead and nearly three dozen wounded. If convicted, he faces execution or life in prison. Jury selection was to begin

last week, with testimony set to start in early July. But everything was pushed back again last week, at least briefly, during a hearing in which the Army judge, Col. Tara Osborn, granted Hasan’s request to represent himself. Before she did, she warned him that doing so would be “a far more physically taxing enterprise than you can imagine.” She’s expected to rule Tuesday on his request for a threemonth delay. While Hasan can maneuver his wheelchair, his doctor said Hasan cannot sit upright more than 12 hours a day without his concentration being affected. Inmates at Hasan’s jail must wake up before dawn, so daily testi-

mony would have to conclude by 5 p.m. at the latest, Dr. Prasad Lakshminarasimhiah told the judge last week. A court-martial already has the potential to take longer because military jurors are allowed to submit questions to witnesses after they have testified, so many judges allow testimony to continue until late at night, if witnesses and the jury want to keep going. But that would not be possible at Hasan’s trial. To avoid muscle spasms, Hasan also must have 15- to 20-minute breaks for stretching every four hours. To avoid developing sores, he also must relieve pressure by lifting himself off his wheelchair for

about a minute every half hour. It’s unclear if the breaks for stretching and meals could be taken at the same time, and Fort Hood officials have not said if the trial’s daily schedule will be set with Hasan’s medical issues in mind. Hasan, who uses a catheter and adult diapers, refuses to take medication that would help regulate his digestive system, and he must eat at the same time each day to avoid accidents, Lakshminarasimhiah said. The jail serves breakfast at about 4:30 a.m., lunch about 10:30 a.m. and dinner at about 4:30 p.m., but the American-born Muslim told the judge that he fasts frequently and misses a meal on those days.

Board considers wellness clinic During their May 23 meeting, members of the Compassionate Care of Shelby County board discussed the possibility of creating a wellness center at the organization’s facility. This wellness center would provide a space to offer physical therapy and occupational therapy services for clients of the clinic. The clinic has been contacted by therapists in the area offering their time, but currently there are no accommodations at the clinic. This space could also be utilized by patients that have no other access to exercise equipment. A committee has been

New conservation program available to area landowners BY STEVE BROWN Ohio landowners and operators in designated priority areas have the opportunity to offer cropland for enrollment into a Continuous Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) practice entitled Pheasant State Acres for Wildlife Enhancement (SAFE), also known as practice CP38. Applications will be accepted from May 13 through Sept, 30. Pheasant SAFE is available in all or portions of the following counties: Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Defiance, Fayette, Fulton, Hardin, Highland, Huron, Knox, Logan, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Paulding, Pickaway, Ross, Seneca, Shelby, Union and Wyandot. Ohio’s Pheasant SAFE program was specifically designed by Ohio conservation organizations and agencies to build and restore habitats to support declining populations of Pheasants and other game birds. Pheasant SAFE enhances the effectiveness of CRP by helping to establish higher quality habitat for species of concern right here in Ohio. Pheasant SAFE allows enrollment of whole fields. • To be eligible for SAFE, cropland must be physically located in one of Ohio’s priority areas. • Cropland must meet cropping history requirements as specified in the Code of Federal Regulations. • Cropland need not be classified as highly erodible. • Land currently enrolled in CRP may be re-offered for enrollment under SAFE if the land enrolled in CRP is in the last year of the CRP-1 contract. Offers for enrollment in SAFE can be made at any of the eligible FSA County Offices in which the land is located. Offers are automatically accepted provided the land and applicant meet certain eligibility requirements. SAFE offers are not subject to competitive bidding; however, Ohio is limited to enrollment on a first come, first served basis. The applicant may elect a contract period between 10 and 15 years. Ohio’s Pheasant SAFE program allows producers in selected counties to establish permanent wildlife habitat cover under practice CP38E. CP38E is eligible to receive the following payments: • Signing Incentive Payment (SIP) • 50 percent cost share assistance for establishing the permanent wildlife habitat cover; • Practice Incentive Payment (PIP) equal to 40 percent of eligible practice establishment costs; and • Annual rental payments. Annual rental payments are calculated using soil rental rates, which are similar to cash rent rates. In addition to Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) personnel, wildlife biologists from Pheasants Forever, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are available to provide technical assistance to interested landowners and farm operators.

Wind used to halt algae growth COLUMBUS (AP) — Toxic blue-green algae killing fish in a central Ohio park system’s 10acre pond can hopefully be held in check with the help of wind power, parks officials said. An aluminum windmill powers a pump that feeds air through two submerged “bubblers” in Heron Pond at the Three Creeks Metro Park, according to Columbus Metro Parks officials. The park’s assistant manager, Robin Blair, says the oxygen in the bubbles should help check growth of the harmful algae in the pond this summer, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

The algae found in many Ohio lakes and ponds grow thick in warm water. The algae feed on phosphorus from manure, fertilizers and sewage that rains wash into nearby streams. Blue-green algae can create oxygen-depleted areas where fish can’t live and can produce liver and nerve toxins harmful to humans. Three Creeks park officials the algae for killing fish in Heron Pond the past two summers. “In 2012, we had two fish kills within a week of each other,” Blair said. “We lost about 1,000 fish over both kills.”

Mac Albin, the park’s aquatic ecologist, said the shallow Heron Pond is ideally suited for algae growth. Harmful algae problems were first reported in the 13,000-acre Grand Lake St. Marys, Ohio’s largest inland lake, in 2009. The algae also affect Lake Erie, where a record “bloom” stretched from Toledo to Cleveland in 2011. Electric and solarpowered “aerators” similar to the Three Creeks effort are used at Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio. The aerators keep algae from growing in areas where waves

VO-AG Pathway courses for food science and technology include agriculture; food and nature resources; science and technology of food; applications of food science and technology; meat science and technology; microbial food science and safety. During a recent Sidney City Schools Board of Education meeting, Gene Cordonnier, of Upper Valley Career Center, and Tony Arnold, Freshway Foods human resource director, talked about the joint venture. “There was no food service/technology program at Upper Valley Career Center,” said Cordonnier. “We began visiting local busineses to investigate what was possible. When you talk about food processing, Shelby County is the epicenter of food processing.” Some of the local companies involved in food processing, he said, are Agrana, Cargill, Dannon, Freshway Foods and Mama Rosa.

and wind don’t circulate the water, said Milt Miller, manager of the Grand Lake St. Marys Restoration Commission. “They are a proven commodity,” Miller said. “We want to get more and more of them.” Blair said the windmill-powered bubblers should aerate up to 5 acres of Heron Pond and she hopes to get approval to buy two more windmills next year. The first windmill installed this spring cost $3,500. Park officials are hopeful fish will migrate to the area protected by the bubblers.

From Page 1 A planning committee of agriculture people, business people and teachers were all part of the planning process for the new program, said Cordonnier. The explored the possibility of creating the program; helped design the program; developed the program; discussed how the delivery and implementation of the program; and did program assessment. “There is a huge level of excitement about the program,” said Arnold. “We (businesses) will get good talent who is well educated and familiar with food processes. “There is a shortage of food science majors coming out of college,” he said. According to statistics presented by Arnold, a student receiving a bachelor’s degree in food science will enjoy a nearly 100 percent job placement rate nationwide; that jobs are plentiful for the graduates and there are several more jobs available than

qualified candidates. Freshway Foods has educational relationships with Ohio State University, the University of Cincinnati, Wright State University, University of Dayton, Miami University (of Ohio) and Michigan State University. Positions Freshway Foods recruits for includes food safety coordinators, quality control specialists, food microbiology specialists, food packaging specialists, sanitation technicians, forklift operators, research and development specialists and marketing specialists. Freshway Foods, said Arnold, has 400 associates and the company is seeing a 10-15 percent growth annually. “We deal with fresh cut produce,” said Arnold. “We get our food from throughout the United States (17 states) and some from Mexico and Canada. “We feed 1 1/2 million people per day during our peak time,” he said.

Freshway Foods delivers the finished product to seats east of the Mississippi Rover. The company has 44 tractors and 55 trailers to deliver the food. “If you visit Kroger, we have 30 items on the salad bar,” said Arnold. Some of the company’s customers partners are Panera Bread, Applebee’s, Sonic, Arby’s, Meijer, Culver’s, Potbelly, Steak ‘n Shake, Giant Eagle, Marsh and Hooters. “Graduating high school students with a food science background,” said Arnold, “could pursue work opportunities immediately or attend college majoring in a related field.” The program, which will begin in the fall, will have a course that all eighth-grade students at Sidney Middle School will attend. Courses will also be available for high school students. McCulloch will be meeting with students and parents who will be enrolling in the program this week.

Anna FFA member receives scholarship ANNA — Tractor Supply Company and the National FFA Foundation recently announced the results of their new Growing Scholars program. Tractor Supply customers across the country donated $362,324, resulting in 284 scholarships awarded to FFA members in their pursuit of a college degree. 19 of the 284 scholarships were awarded to Ohio residents. The Growing Scholars program was supported nationally by each of the more than 1,175 Tractor Supply stores Feb. 1524 as part of National FFA Week. Tractor Supply customers supported local FFA chapters and their members by

purchasing an FFA emblem for $1 at store registers during the checkout process. Ninety percent of funds raised are being utilized to fund scholarships for FFA members, with the remaining 10 percent benefitting state FFA organizations. “The amount of support we received from our customers in such a short amount of time was outstanding,” said Tractor Supply President and CEO Greg Sandfort. “Having the ability to provide scholarships to FFA members and funding for state FFA organizations is tremendous because they are a part of Tractor Supply, both as customers and as potential team members. We share the

same values and lifestyle that Tractor Supply supports.” The National FFA Foundation selected FFA members across the United States to receive the scholarships. Two $1,000 grants were also awarded to select FFA Chapters. Devon Alexander, of Anna, was one of the recipients of the scholarship. His major is public relations. To be eligible for a scholarship, students must have been current FFA members and either a high school senior or a freshman, sophomore or junior college student seeking a twoor four-year degree or other specialized training program.

Major areas of study were also considered when determining scholarship recipients. For the final report of funds raised and a list of the scholarship recipients, visit “We are thrilled with the results of the first Growing Scholars program,” said National FFA Foundation Executive Director Robert K. Cooper. “We are very thankful for Tractor Supply’s continued support of FFA and the efforts of its customers to give our youth a chance to grow.” In addition to the Growing Scholars program, Tractor Supply and the National FFA Foundation have many other

joint initiatives, including the FFA horse evaluation career development event, National FFA Week and the annual National Association of Agricultural Educators Conference. At an individual store level, Tractor Supply continually hosts fundraising events and works closely with local FFA chapters and high school agriculture advisors to provide resources and leverage synergies. “Local high school agricultural advisers and FFA chapters feel at home in their local Tractor Supply stores,” said John Wendler, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply.

Lady Tigers repeat in D-III BY ROB KISER Civitas Media COLUMBUS — As it turned out, all the Versailles girls on the Lady Tigers track and field team were winners — capped by a foursome of “Winners” Saturday at Jesse Owens Stadium at the Division III state track and field championhips. And it was deja vu of sorts for Amanda Winner on the anchor leg of the 1,600 relay, a race Versailles had to finish in the top two in to take the team title. Winner ran by Minster’s Olivia Enneking coming off the final curve to give Versailles the win in 3:58.73, less than a second ahead of the Lady Wildcats. It made state champions of the Winner family — she teamed with Haley Winner and sisters Meagan and Taylor Winner — and completed Versailles defense of its team title. The Lady Tigers finished with 28 points, while Columbus Academy was second with Isaac Hale/Civitas Media 24. “I knew everything that VERSAILLES FRESHMAN Haley Winner crosses the finish line after running the anchor leg in was at stake,” Amanda Win- the 400 relay Saturday at the Division III State Track Meet.

It was just a great team effort by everyone. We had a couple alternates (Lauren Bohman, Valerie Francis) who stepped up for us at regionals last week and helped us get here. “Of course, they made the announcement that this is the fewest points scored by a team champion — and that’s fine — because it was the most today and that’s all that Isaac Hale/Civitas Media matters.” See STATE /Page 11 LEHMAN SPRINTER Sarah Titterington heads for the finish line in the 100-meter dash Saturday at the Division III State Track Meet in Columbus.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “To try to make up that much ground is almost impossible because it's so tiring. Those horses shook loose and we couldn't catch them.” — Orb's trainer Shug McGaughey, after his horse finished third Saturday in the Belmont Stakes

ON THIS DATE IN 1933 — Johnny Goodman wins the U.S. Open golf title, making him the last amateur to win this event. 1978 — Affirmed, ridden by Steve Cauthen, wins the Belmont Stakes to capture the Triple Crown in one of the greatest battles in racing history. Affirmed edges Alydar for the third time. 2005 — Baltimore's 4-3 win over Cincinnati marks the first time that three 500-homer players appear in the same game — the Orioles' Sammy Sosa (580) and Rafael Palmeiro (559), and the Reds' Ken Griffey, who hits a solo shot in the eighth inning for No. 511.

RUSSIA SOPHOMORE Leah Francis clears a hurdle in the 100-meter event Saturday at the Division

III State Track Meet. She came in with the seventhfastest qualifying time and finished fourth.

STATE There are some things that are more rewarding than others and Meagan Winner is a great example of that. Running at state for the first time, she ran on the winning 1,600 relay team. “That’s a girl who has been an alternate on a number of relay teams over here,” Goubeaux said. “She is a girl who just kept working hard and getting better and better. She got her chance this year — to see her go out on top like that, that is really great to see.” The day had started with the 800 relay (Lauren Bohman, Keihl, Amanda Winner, Haley Winner) being edged out by half-second by Tinora and finishing second in 1:44.30. A short time later, Keihl, Hemmelgarn, Bohman and Haley Winner won the first of two state championships for the Versailles relays on the day. This time Haley Winner — just a freshman — held off Tinora’s Tori Abdul down the stretch. Versailles won in 49.58 and Tinora was clocked in 49.81. “I felt a lot of pressure,” Haley Winner. “I just wanted to run my best and not let my teammates down.” Mission accomplished. “I was watching on the big screen,” Bohman said. “When I saw Haley win, I started celebrating.” Then came the Winner of a finish in the 1,600 relay.

He was also ninth in the 100. “Overall, I was pretty happy with the (400) race,” Stewart said. “If I could do something different, it would be just running my race instead of worrying about how fast the other guys were going out at the start.” Teammate Sarah Titterington took sixth in the 200 and 400 dashes. “It was nice to get on the podium twice,” said

Titterington, a senior. Minster also got a third from its 800 relay team and a fifth from Dominic Slonkosky in the1600 run. The Wildcats totaled 33 points to finish in fourth place, the best of any local/area team. The Russia girls ended with 18 points to finish in a seven-way tie for sixth place in the final standings. On Saturday, sophomore Leah Francis led the way with a strong showing in the 100 hurdles, finishing fourth in 15.48 after coming in with the seventh-fastest qualifying time. “I’m really happy with the way I ran,” she said. “I knew I ran a clean race.” Lauren Heaton was seventh in the 400, and Emily Borchers was eighth in the 1600.

Alvarez, Kelly lead Tigers over Indians 1 victory over the Cleveland Indians. He was called up to make this start when Anibal Sanchez’s shoulder acted up. Then after the game, Alvarez was sent back to the minors — but not before he impressed his manager, his teammates and a sellout crowd of 41,262. “You certainly had to like his demeanor and his mound presence. I thought it was terrific,” manager Jim Leyland said. “He didn’t appear to be overwhelmed by anything. We kind of noticed that in spring training — this kid was

pretty calm.” Don Kelly hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the sixth for the first-place Tigers, who completed a threegame sweep of Cleveland and lead the AL

Central by 51/2 games over the Indians. Alvarez (1-0) held Cleveland hitless until Ryan Isaac Hale/Civitas Media Raburn’s fifth-inning LEHMAN’S JUSTIN Stewart runs to a fourth-place homer.

DETROIT (AP) — Jose Alvarez stood in front of his temporary locker in the Detroit Tigers’ clubhouse and answered questions with the same relaxed poise he showed on the mound. “Tried to control the emotions the most I can,” the 24-year-old lefthander said. “Trust myself.

Solid debut for Hoying in Class AAA BY DAVE ROSS Four days ago Fort Loramie’s Jared Hoying was fully recovered from a hamstring injury and was completing rehabilitation at the Texas Rangers training facility in Surprise, Arizona. He thought he’d be returning to the AA affiliate in Frisco, Texas where he’d played since late last June. With a .242 batting average before the injury, he didn’t see a promotion in his future when he was told to pack his bags and be ready within two hours for a flight to Des Moines, Iowa to join the Round Rock (Texas) Express at the AAA level. Hoying was added to the Round Rock roster on Friday and made his debut in right field on Saturday in the first game of a split doubleheader, going 1-3 with one walk and one RBI.

LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson absolutely dominated Sunday at Pocono Raceway for his third victory of the season. The Sprint Cup points leader, Johnson pulled away on both of the last two restarts over the final 10 laps to pull into Victory Lane at Pocono for the first time since he swept both races in 2004. Johnson also won the Daytona 500 and at Martinsville Speedway this season. He led 128 of 160 laps for his 63rd career Cup victory, and was never seriously challenged a week after his run at a possible win at Dover International Speedway was taken away by a penalty off a restart. Greg Biffle was second and Dale Earnhardt

He sat out the nightcap before returning to the lineup in center field on Sunday afternoon when he went 1-4 with a home run, a run scored, and two RBI. Even though Round Rock is a member of the Pacific Coast League, the name is misleading as the league plays in 16 cities in three time zones including Nashville and Memphis. During July and August his new team will play a dozen games in Tennessee. Nashville is about 370 miles from Fort Loramie. Hoying and company flew back to Round Rock after Sunday’s game to begin a four game homestand with Albuquerque tonight. Next weekend finds the 35-29 Express in Oklahoma City (3326) to meet the only team currently ahead of Eldora Speedway them in the division Eldora Speedway Saturday’s results standings.

Easy victory for Johnson Jr., Johnson’s teammate, was third. Dover winner Tony Stewart was fourth, followed by fellow Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Newman. “I really didn’t have anything for Jimmie,” Biffle said. “Jimmie was in a league of his own.” Johnson started first and won from the pole after rain washed out qualifying Friday. He could be celebrating back-to-back wins had it not been for a pass-through penalty last week in the final laps at Dover. NASCAR penalized him for jumping leader Juan Pablo Montoya off the restart with 19 laps left and he finished 17th. Busch, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano rounded out the top 10.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, June 10, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, June 11, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel passionate today, especially about issues at home or situations regarding your family. This could include discussions about shared property or how to divide an inheritance. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) If you want something today, you really want it. There are no halfway measures. This is why you will speak up and defend yourself. You might even develop a crush on a neighbor or relative. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You have firm ideas about how you want to earn a living and make money. Today this seems to be clear to you. Meanwhile, some of you might develop a work-related, overwhelming, passionate crush on someone. (Oh my.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your relationships with others are intense today. Some of you will develop a new relationship with someone powerful. Be careful about manipulating others, and don't let anyone do this to you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Subconscious influences may make you feel obsessed about something today. This might even surprise you. Don't go off the deep end. Be reasonable. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relationships with others, especially in group situations, will be intense today. Be prepared for this. (Some of you might develop a crush on a friend.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be careful when talking to authority figures today, because you might overstep proper bounds. Your strong feelings or obsession with something could get you in trouble. Easy does it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Heated debates about religion, politics or philosophical ideas might take place today, simply because you (and others) are opinionated about something. If you can travel anywhere today, you will. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Disputes about inheritances and shared property might occur today. Remember that emotions are strong and feelings are running high. Stay chill. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be patient with friends and partners, because conflict easily can arise today. This is because subconscious impulses could change people's behavior. (Downright pushy.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be tolerant with co-workers today. It's easy to get on your high horse about something. But if you do this, you only will magnify the opposition to you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Romance is passionate today. Just go with the flow and avoid arguments. People are emotional today. Be especially patient with children. YOU BORN TODAY You're brave about pushing boundaries and meeting obstacles. Your approach to life is grounded and well-directed. You work because you like to be active, and you study to learn more about whatever interests you. You will vibrantly live every day until your last. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: Hugh Laurie, actor; Shia LaBeouf, actor; Sandra Schmirler, honored champion curler. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

vaginismus. I wonder whether you might have vaginismus as a complication of the postoperative pain. In any case, you aren’t getting the help you need from your doctors, and you need to see an expert. Fortunately, there are experts in pelvic pain. A sex therapist also may be helpful, and I would recommend seeing one before considering another surgery. Unfortunately, it is possible that another surgery will be required to fix the problem. Only a very careful examination will be able to tell what the problem is. Recurring vaginal infections are often painful and troubling to women. The booklet on that topic explains them and their treatment.

Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH:

I’m an 82-year-old male in generally good health. Several years ago my blood test results came back with the notation that I have Pelger Huet Anomaly. Interestingly, a grandson and greatgranddaughter also have been diagnosed with this condition. Please give me details about the condition and its significance. Should I be concerned about the condition? Apparently I’ve had the condition for a long time. A previous doctor said only that my blood count is “different” but that that is just the way I am and there’s no need to be concerned. — P.H. ANSWER: The Pelger-Huet anomaly is a benign, genetic abnormality of the neutrophil, the cell that first fights off infection in the blood. The cells function normally. Automated machines sometimes can misread these cells as immature neutrophils, called “band cells,” leading to confusion about whether an infection is present. Otherwise, there is no reason for concern.

100 years June 10, 1913 At the meeting of city council last evening Mr. Toy noted that there were no drinking fountains around the square. He suggested that sanitary drinking fountains be furnished by the county commissioners, if it is their duty, or by the service department as the water works kept running water all the time at these places and it was only wasted. In discussion of the matter of a traffic ordinance at the council session, many thought something should be done to stop the noise made by motorcycles and automobiles on the streets as it is uncalled for. The clerk was instructed to obtain a copy of the new traffic ordinance now in force in Dayton. ——— Game Warden Clyde Purnell received 200 pheasant Mongolian eggs from the state yesterday for hatching. The eggs were distributed to C.J. Spillman, Chas. Woolley, James Suber and others for hatching. After they are hatched they will be liberated in pairs at various places in the county.

When you are ready to dispose of yours, contact the local Boy or Girl Scout Council, or wait until the Girl Scout cookie sales start locally and offer the flag to the troop during a sale at a small business. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 50ish, never-married bachelor with a question about engagement rings. Do you recommend that the man go

out and purchase an engagement ring and then present it to the woman when he proposes, or do you think he should propose without a ring and then let her choose the ring she wants? — OLD BACHELOR IN OHIO DEAR BACHELOR: When a man is ready to propose, it would be prudent for him to visit a jeweler and ask that some rings — or stones — in his price range be set aside. Then he can pop the question, and IF the woman says yes, take her to the jeweler to select something she would enjoy wearing. This will prevent an unpleasant and expensive surprise should the lady should say no.

DAYTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Get your Gover running and head out on the highway, chasing the dream of owning a sparkling new, black and chrome Road King Classic motorcycle from Gover Harley Davidson. This 775pound hunk of hurtling horsepower is the grand prize in Community Blood Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (CBC) â&#x20AC;&#x153;King of the Road Summer Blood Driveâ&#x20AC;? campaign. CBC has partnered with Gover again Harley Davidson in Piqua and REACH Magazine to present a dream machine for one very blood donor. lucky Everyone who registers to donate blood at any CBC Donor Center or mobile blood drivethrough Aug. 31 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win the Road King. Ten computer-selected finalists will be invited to a special envelope-opening announcement event in September to discover the Road King winner. (Must be 18 to win. Official rules available at ). Everyone who registers to donate during the summer months will receive a free â&#x20AC;&#x153;King of the Road Summer Blood Driveâ&#x20AC;? T-shirt. CBC will kick-off the campaign with the first t-shirt design, offered through July 13. (A second design will follow July 15 through Aug. 31). The first T-shirt is orange with a black emblem, the classic Harley Davidson colors. The center of the design is a Route â&#x20AC;&#x153;56â&#x20AC;? road sign (a play on the original U.S. Highway, Route 66, with the reminder that you can donate blood every 56 days). Harley Davidson wings flank the top of the Route 56 road sign, and two Road King motorcycles are depicted below. The road sign reads â&#x20AC;&#x153;King of the Road Blood Donor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Summer 2013â&#x20AC;? and below it are the CBC blood drop log and the Gover Harley Davidson logo. Harley Davidson introduced the Road King in 1994 and it quickly reached iconic status. Its bloodlines reach back to the classic 1964 Electra Glide model. Though popular as the ultimate cruising bike, it is also fully equipped for longdistance touring. The Road King Classic model takes the nostalgic look further with extra details like leather-wrapped saddlebags, nostalgic chrome fuel tank console, tooled metal detailing on the fender, tank, seat and bags, and chrome laced wheels with wide whitewall tires. CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road King will be on display at special events and bike gatherings this summer to remind donors that the dream of owning this classic motorcycle will come true for someone in September. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;King of the Road Summer Blood Driveâ&#x20AC;? is part of comprehensive and ambitious campaign to boost the blood supply during the challenging summer months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each of us is an important member of the CBC team charged with collecting blood products in sufficient quantity and of the right type,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. David Smith, CBC chief executive officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you all know, it can be a challenge. It is a multi-faceted strategy to increase collections during the months of June-August.â&#x20AC;?

Celebrated every June 14th in the USA, millions of Americans observe Flag Day by waving Old Glory outside their homes and businesses. Veteran’s groups and sometimes whole communities also arrange civic functions and special ceremonies in honor of Flag Day. This year, get ready to join millions of American coast to coast who will celebrate Flag Day on Friday, June 14, 2013. As the legend goes, it was George Washington and two other members of the Continental Congress who asked Betsy Ross to sew the first American flag sometime in the late spring of 1776. The young widow was only in her early 20’s when she completed the first flag with thirteen stars arranged in a circle.

35 Years serving our community!

A year later, the Continental Congress officially adopted the design for the national flag, and henceforward the Stars and Stripes symbolized the U.S. around the world. The first Flag Day was celebrated in 1877 - the flag’s centennial. In 1916, a grass roots movement resulted in President Woodrow Wilson issuing a proclamation that called for a nationwide observance of Flag Day on June 14. Although still not an official holiday, Flag Day was made a permanent observance in America in 1949 by Congress who resolved “That the 14th day of June of each year is hereby designated as Flag Day
