Jobless rate holds at 7% COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate was stuck at 7 percent last month, according to state numbers released Friday, but it’s still well below the national average. The seasonally adjusted rate hasn’t moved much since the beginning of the year. Starting the year at 7 percent, it briefly rose to 7.1 percent for February and March, then dropped to 7 percent again for

April. There it stayed last month, according to the data from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Ohio leaders have said repeatedly that the state’s economy and its job market are getting stronger, but the process will be slow. The state’s unemployment rate peaked at 10.6 percent during the last half of 2009 and early 2010 before beginning its trek downward. Jan-

uary marked the first time the rate failed to decline or at least remain steady since July 2011. But the Ohio rate has consistently remained below the national level. The U.S. unemployment rate for May was 7.6 percent. State officials reported that the number of nonagricultural jobs in Ohio increased 32,100 in May, to 5,213,900. The number of unemployed

A GROUP of GOBA bikers heads north on Kuther Road toward Sidney Friday morning. They were some of the more than 2,300 riders who participated in the week-long, 50-miles-per-day ride through west central Ohio.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government is moving toward easing restrictions on airline passengers using electronic devices to listen to music, play games, read books, watch movies and work during takeoffs and landings, but it could take a few months. An industry-labor advisory committee was supposed to make recommendations next month to the Federal Aviation Administration on easing the restrictions. But the agency said in a statement Friday the deadline has been extended to September because committee members asked for extra time to finish assessing whether it’s safe to lift restrictions. “The FAA recognizes consumers are intensely interested in the use of personal electronics aboard aircraft; that is why we tasked a government-industry group to examine the safety issues and the feasibility of changing the current restrictions,” the statement said. The agency is under public and political pressure to ease the restrictions as more people bring their e-book readers, music and video players, smartphones and laptops with them when they fly. Technically, the FAA doesn’t bar use of electronic devices when aircraft are below 10,000 feet. But under FAA rules, airlines that want to let passengers use the devices are faced with a practical impossibility — they would have to show that they’ve tested every type and make of device passengers would use to ensure there is no electromagnetic interference with aircraft radios and electrical and electronic systems. As a result, U.S. airlines simply bar all electric device use below 10,000 feet. Airline accidents are most likely to occur during takeoffs, landSee GADGETS/Page 5

Sidney City Council Sidney City Council will consider adoption of an ordinance to assess the repair costs of a dangerous building when it meets Monday at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers. After an inspection of a structure at 532 N. Main Ave., city officials determined it to be a “dangerous building.” The city hired a contractor to secure the residence after the owner failed to secure it. The ordinance would assess the $2,000 in repair costs to the real estate. In other business, council will consider a resolution to enter a contract with the Ohio Department of Transportation for the removal of an existing superstructure and beam supports of a bridge on Michigan Street, west of Oak Avenue. Also on the agenda is a resolution for another contract with ODOT for pier and abutment patching on the Ohio 47 bridge over Interstate 75. Council also will discuss the vacant residential property list, fire and rescue contract with townships, a liquor license request, and an environmental assessment of the Wagner Manufacturing property.

NE Ohio kitchen trains felon cooks, feeds shelters BY MICHAEL O’MALLEY AP Exchange CLEVELAND (AP) — Culinary instructor Mark Jasinski, using an overhead projector and a laser pointer, explains to a class of ex-cons how to skin a freshwater eel. “You put the eel on a cutting board, take a nail and pound it through the eye socket, bam!” he says. “Now that you’ve got the eel secured to the cutting board, you pull that leathery skin off.” One week, the class was on seafood. Another week, meat. “Tomorrow, gentlemen, you’re going to shuck and eat an oyster,” Jasinski says, dismissing the class. Between classroom quizzes and lectures, it’s hands-on dicing, chopping, mixing, cooking and baking in a big, new kitchen at Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry, which prepares up to 1,700 hot meals a day and trucks them to poor people living in shelters. The central kitchen that serves other agencies and the culinary program are new ventures by the nonprofit social-service agency. It trains only people with felony records. “They have to have a criminal background. That’s a requirement,” said Bryan Mauk, director of social enterprise at the agency. Melvin McCornell, 46, who lives in a halfway house, is one of 28 students in the program. His rap sheet includes drug trafficking, aggravated theft and five years behind bars. “Yes, I did some bad things in the past,” he said. “But this is what I do now. I don’t run with the same crowd anymore. I’m reconnecting

with my family.” McCornell has learned how to sear a duck, gut a cod and dress a turkey. He’s gotten high marks for his knife skills and extra credit for deep-frying a Snickers candy bar. With a felony record, McCornell normally would have a hard time landing a job, but the program has already placed six of its graduates in restaurants or catering businesses, so he’s hopeful. “I’ll graduate in August, and I’ll be a cook,” he said. “My mind is made up. I’m making changes. I’m trying to excel and do my best here.” The culinary program came to life with the recent move by Lutheran Metro from its long-time headquarters in the Ohio City area to a renovated building with large, airy space. With the bigger space, the agency was able to build a kitchen with industrial ovens, heavyduty stoves, walk-in coolers and a mechanized cauldron that can hold 30 gallons of soup at one time. The kitchen, which operates on an $800,000 annual budget, employs nine people full-time, including chefs, truck drivers and support staff. Matt Barnes, a veteran cook and graduate of a culinary arts school in Pittsburgh, is the head chef. “We try to get away from canned products,” he said, noting the kitchen’s stock of fresh vegetables and meats. One week’s main dishes included leg of lamb, cashew chicken, baked turkey, spaghetti and sloppy joes. The hot meals are loaded onto two trucks and delivered to four so-

cial-service agencies three times a day — a men’s shelter, a women’s shelter, a halfway house for men and a youth shelter. The agencies pay Lutheran Metro for the food service. Mauk is hoping to expand the program to serve other shelters and agencies that help the poor. “We could do 3,000 meals a day,” he said. Lutheran Metro’s new space, the Richard Sering Center, named after its late founder, includes administrative offices for its 80-member staff. 44-year-old The agency raised more than $7 million to buy and renovate the building, which had been a glove factory. The money was pooled from federal, state and local grants, foundation grants and private donations. Lutheran Metro, with a $10.5 million operating budget, helps more than 10,000 people a year with housing, job training, medical care, education, counseling and more. To people like Tim Foster, 48, who lives in a house, the halfway agency is a lifeline. Foster has struggled with alcohol. He says he got drunk one cold winter night, broke into a parked police car and went to sleep. It got him on the wrong side of the law with a felony rap. Now he’s in Lutheran Metro’s culinary program. “These people have shown me love and compassion, giving me another chance to be a man,” said Foster. “I feel really good here, and I’m grateful to be with good people.” ————— Information from: The Plain Dealer, m

Effort opposing Internet cafe law clears hurdle COLUMBUS (AP) — Opponents of an Ohio law that effectively bans storefront sweepstakes parlors can start collecting signatures in their effort to have voters repeal the measure next year. State officials on Friday certified an initial 1,000 signatures and pe-

tition summary wording from the group called the Committee to Protect Ohio Jobs. That means it can begin gathering more than 231,000 signatures needed to place a referendum on the ballot. The group wants the law repealed to force legislators to pass a new


law regulating the industry and shut down what it calls rogue sweepstakes parlor operators. It has until Sept. 3 to collect the required signatures. More than 620 Internet cafes operate in Ohio, representing competition to legalized casinos and charity games. The law’s supporters say Internet cafes were harboring illegal gambling.

BY ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio is turning over the feeding of its approximately 50,000 prison inmates to a private company in an attempt to save $14 million annually in the face of looming budget deficits, the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction announced Friday. Philadelphia-based Aramark won the twoyear contract with a bid to spend about $3.61 per day per inmate, the state said. The announcement came almost exactly two years after Gov. John Kasich signed a bill into law meant to reduce the prison population to save millions. Instead, the state says the numbers are growing beyond its own estimates, one of several reasons it’s looking for new savings. The state could house as many as 52,100 inmates by the end of the next two year budget cycle in June 2015, JoEllen Smith, a Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman, said Friday. That’s 1,200 above projections. That’s also several thousand inmates above figures estimated by the state in 2011 as the overhaul law was being

debated. That estimate said Ohio would house as few as 47,000 by inmates by 2015 if the bill passed. The prison system is trying to figure out why the population is growing in spite of the law and what can be done about it, Smith said. The agency determined in February that the number of inmates returning to Ohio prisons upon release has hit a new low. But it also found the number of people serving time for drug and property offenses has risen despite efforts created in the 2011 sentencing law to reduce the numbers of low-level offenders behind bars. Aramark’s $110 million contract starts Sept. 8 and runs through June 30, 2015, with an option to extend that for two additional two-year budget cycles. The savings in the contract will help the prison system deal with a $60 million shortfall, Smith said. Increases in workers comp rates, health insurance premiums, medical and drug expenses, the increase in inmate population and other issues are driving the budget gap. More than 230 of the agency’s 433 food service workers already have

moved to other positions within the system, and the system is trying to find places for as many of the remaining workers as possible, Smith said. Prisons director Gary Mohr “remains committed to meeting our budget without closing any housing units or laying off security staff,” Smith said in a statement. The union representing prison guards criticized the announcement, saying it had offered a competitive proposal to keep food service in-house while saving money. The move means untrained food service workers replacing union employees trained to deal with prison security issues in addition to their kitchen duties, said Christopher Mabe, president of the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association. “It leads to the possibility of very violent, dangerous situations,” Mabe said. Indiana, Kansas and Kentucky are among states that have already privatized their prison food service operations. Messages were left with Aramark. It won the contract over Oldsmar, Fla.-based Trinity Services Group, which submitted a $3.74 per inmate per day bid.

DAYTON (AP) — A newborn baby’s condition has improved days after his mother was killed in a southwest Ohio shooting and he was delivered in an emergency surgery. A spokeswoman for Miami Valley Hospital’s Emergency and Trauma Center says the boy’s condition has been upgraded from critical to serious. No other information was released on him immediately Friday. The baby was born through cesarean section Wednesday night after the pregnant woman, 27-year-old Daylynn Foster, was hit once by a bullet in the area of her midsection. Police have said Foster was an innocent bystander when shots were fired during a large fight on the southwest side of Dayton that night.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, June 22, the 173rd day of 2013. There are 192 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 22, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, more popularly known as the “GI Bill of Rights.” On this date: • In 1611, English explorer Henry Hudson, his son and several other people were set adrift in present-day Hudson Bay by mutineers aboard the Discovery; their fate remains unknown. • In 1870, the United States Department of Justice was created. • In 1911, Britain’s King George V was crowned at Westminster Abbey. • In 1937, Joe Louis began his reign as world heavyweight boxing champion by knocking out Jim Braddock in the eighth round of their fight in Chicago. • In 1938, Joe Louis knocked out Max Schmeling in the first round of their rematch at Yankee Stadium. • In 1940, during World War II, Adolf Hitler gained a stunning victory as France was forced to sign an armistice eight days after German forces overran Paris. • In 1943, federal troops put down race-related rioting in Detroit that claimed more than 30 lives. • In 1962, Air France Flight 117, a Boeing 707, crashed while on approach to Guadeloupe, killing all 113 people on board. • In 1970, President Richard Nixon signed an extension of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that lowered the minimum voting age to 18. • In 1977, John N. Mitchell became the first former U.S. Attorney General to go to prison as he began serving a sentence for his role in the Watergate cover-up. (He was released 19 months later.) • In 1988, gay rights activist Leonard Matlovich, discharged from the U.S. Air Force because of his homosexuality, died at age 44. • In 1993, former first lady Pat Nixon died in Park Ridge, N.J., at age 81. Ten years ago: Iraq reentered the world oil market with its first shipment of crude since the U.S.-led invasion, but sabotage and looting along its largest pipeline delayed the flow of freshly pumped oil.


This one’s for all the marbles WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP) An 11-year-old girl from Pennsylvania and a 12year-old boy from Maryland are this year’s national marbles champions. Emily Cavacini won the girls’ championship Thursday at the National Marbles Tournament in Wildwood, N.J. Cooper Fisher won the boys’ title. The four-day tournament featured 26 boys and 26 girls competing to knock marbles out of a circle. Emily is from Shaler, Pa., just north of Pittsburgh. She’s been playing marbles for about four years. She's a fifth-grader at Shaler Elementary School and won the Allegheny County Marbles Tournament on June 1. Numerous other marbles champions have come from Allegheny County over the last 10 years. Cooper is from Middletown Valley, Md. Emily and Cooper say it's fun playing against their friends in the tournament, which is celebrating its 90th year.

Floods kill 3, forces 75,000 from Calgary homes CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Floodwaters that devastated much of southern Alberta left at least three people dead and forced officials in the western Canadian city of Calgary on Friday to order the evacuation of its entire downtown, as the waters reached the 10th row of the city’s hockey arena. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper called the level of flooding “stunning” and said officials don’t know yet if it will get worse, but said the water has peaked and stabilized and noted that the weather has gotten better. Overflowing rivers washed out roads and bridges, soaked homes and turned streets into dirt-brown waterways around southern Alberta. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Patricia Neely told reporters three were dead and two bodies were recovered. The two bodies recovered are the two men who had been seen floating lifeless in the Highwood River near High River on Thursday, she said. Harper, a Calgary resident, said he never imagined there would be a flood of this magnitude in this part of Canada. “This is incredible. I’ve seen a little bit of flooding in Calgary before. I don’t think

VEHICLES ARE stranded in the flooded streets of Calgary, Alberta, on Friday. Alberta’s largest city was swamped by floodwaters that submerged much of the lower bowl of the Saddledome hockey arena, displaced tens of thousands of people and forced the evacuation of the downtown core. any of us have seen anything like this before. The magnitude is just extraordinary,” he said. “We’re all very concerned that if gets much more than this it could have real impact on infrastructure and other services longer term, so we’re hoping things will subside a bit.” Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi said the water levels have reached a peak, but have not declined.

“We’ve sat at the same level for many, many hours now,” Nenshi said. “There is one scenario that would it go even higher than this, so you’ll either see the Bow river continue at this level for many hours or you will see it grow even higher and we’re prepared for that eventuality.” Twenty-five neighborhoods in the city, with an estimated 75,000 people, have already been evacuated due to floodwaters in Calgary, a city of

Brazil leader breaks silence about protests BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff ended her near-silence about days of massive, violent protests, saying in a prime time TV broadcast Friday that peaceful demonstrations were part of a strong democracy but that violence could not be tolerated. She promised to make improvements to public services and fight official corruption. Rousseff said she would soon hold a meeting with leaders of the protest movement, governors and the mayors of major cities. But it remained unclear exactly who could represent the massive and decentralized groups of demonstrators taking to the streets, venting anger against woeful public services despite a high tax burden. Though offering no details, Rousseff said that her government would create a national plan for public transportation in cities — a hike in bus and subway fares in many cities was the original complaint of the protests. She also reiterated her backing for a plan before congress to invest all oil revenue royalties in education and a promise she made earlier to bring in foreign doctors to areas that lack physicians.

“I want institutions that are more transparent, more resistant to wrongdoing,” Rousseff said in reference to perceptions of deep corruption in Brazilian politics, which is emerging as a focal point of the protests. “It’s citizenship and not economic power that must be heard first.” The leader, a former Marxist rebel who fought against Brazil’s 1964-1985 military regime and was imprisoned for three years and tortured by the junta, pointedly referred to earlier sacrifices made to free the nation from dictatorship. “My generation fought a lot so that the voice of the streets could be heard,” Rousseff said. “Many were persecuted, tortured and many died for this. The voice of the street must be heard and respected and it can’t be confused with the noise and truculence of some troublemakers.” Edvaldo Chaves, a 61-yearold doorman in Rio’s upscale Flamengo neighborhood, said he found the speech convincing. “I thought she seemed calm and cool. Plus, because she was a guerrilla and was in exile, she talks about the issue of protests convincingly,” Chaves said. “I think things are going to calm down. We’ll probably keep see-

GADGETS ings, and taxiing. Cellphone calls and Internet use and transmissions are also prohibited, and those restrictions are not expected to be lifted. Using cellphones to make calls on planes is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission. There is concern that making calls from fast-flying planes might strain cellular systems, interfering with service on the ground. There is also the potential annoyance factor — whether passengers will be unhappy if they have to listen to other passengers yakking on the phone. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a draft report by the advisory committee indicates its 28 members have reached a consensus that at least some of the current restrictions should be eased. A member of the committee who asked not to be named because the committee’s deliberations are supposed to be kept private told The Associated Press that while the draft report is an attempt to reach consensus, no formal agreement has yet been reached.

ing people in the streets but probably small numbers now.” But Bruna Romao, an 18year-old store clerk in Sao Paulo, said Rousseff’s words probably wouldn’t have an impact. “Brazilians are passionate,” she said. “We boil over quickly but also cool down fast. But this time it’s different, people are in full revolt. I don’t see things calming down anytime soon.” Trying to decipher the president’s reaction to the unrest had become a national guessing game, especially after some 1 million anti-government demonstrators took to the streets nationwide Thursday night to denounce everything from poor public services to the billions of dollars spent preparing for next year’s World Cup soccer tournament and the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. The protests continued Friday, as about 1,000 people marched in western Rio de Janeiro city, with some looting stores and invading an enormous $250 million arts center that remains empty after several years of construction. Police tried to disperse the crowd with tear gas as they were pelted with rocks. Police said some in the crowd were armed and firing at officers.

From Page 1 There are also still safety concerns, the member said. The electrical interference generated by today’s devices is much lower than those of a decade ago, but many more passengers today are carrying electronics. Any plan to allow gate-togate electronic use would also come with certification processes for new and existing aircraft to ensure that they are built or modified to mitigate those risks. Steps to be taken could include ensuring that all navigational antennas are angled away from the plane’s doors and windows. Planes that are already certified for Wi-Fi would probably be more easily certified. Although the restrictions have been broadly criticized as unnecessary, committee members saw value in them. One of the considerations being weighed is whether some heavier devices like laptops should continue to be restricted because they might become dangerous projectiles, hurting other passengers during a crash, the committee member said. There is less concern about tablets and

other lighter devices. FAA officials would still have the final say. An official familiar with FAA’s efforts on the issue said agency officials would like to find a way to allow passengers to use electronic devices during takeoffs and landings the same way they’re already allowed to use them when planes are cruising above 10,000 feet. The official requested anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak by name. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta told a Senate panel in April that he convened the advisory committee in the hope of working out changes to the restrictions. “It’s good to see the FAA may be on the verge of acknowledging what the traveling public has suspected for years — that current rules are arbitrary and lack real justification,” Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., one of Congress’ more outspoken critics of the restrictions, said in a statement. She contends that unless scientific evidence can be presented to justify the restrictions, they should be lifted.

more than a million people that hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics and serves as the center of Canada’s oil industry. Alberta Premier Alison Redford said Medicine Hat, east of Calgary, was under a mandatory evacuation order affecting 10,000 residents. The premier warned that communities downstream of Calgary had not yet felt the full force of the floodwaters. About 350,000 people work in downtown Calgary on a typical day. However, officials said very few people need to be moved out, since many heeded warnings and did not go to work Friday. A spokesman for Canada’s defense minister said 1,300 soldiers from a base in Edmonton were being deployed to the flood zone. Police were asking residents who were forced to leave the nearby High River area to register at evacuation shelter. The Town of High River remained under a mandatory evacuation order. In downtown Calgary, water was inundating homes and businesses in the shadow of skyscrapers. Water has swamped cars and train tracks.

4 shot, shooter caught GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A man armed with a shotgun shot one person outside a North Carolina law firm Friday, darted across a busy street and wounded three others outside a Walmart before officers subdued him, police said. Officers confronted the man outside the store and caught up with him behind a nearby Toys “R” Us. He fired at them and they shot multiple rounds back, hitting the gunman, said Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden. The suspect was expected to survive as well as the four others he’s accused of shooting, Aden said. Greg Siegel, a project manager at an Internet service provider near the shopping center, told the Greenville Daily Reflector he saw from his office window the gunman fleeing police. He said the man was dressed all in black and shot at police while he ran away. “When the officers returned fire, I saw him get hit at least three times,” Siegel said. “At least two hit him in the left leg. I couldn’t tell where else he was hit, maybe it was in the left shoulder, but it spun him around and knocked him down.” The gunman’s first target was seated in his car outside the Kellum Law Firm on the city’s south side, Aden said at a news conference. The firm’s main office in New Bern declined comment. Kellum has nine personal injury offices in the eastern part of the state. The suspect crossed five lanes of traffic after the Kellum shooting and injured the three others before he was caught, Aden said. Police are still trying to determine the shooter’s identity and motive. He is in police custody at a local hospital, Aden said. The victims are all in operating rooms at local hospitals, Aden said. He didn’t give specifics on their conditions or their names and ages. The shooter was using a “pistol-grip shotgun” with an unknown number of rounds, Aden said. He had a bag filled with ammunition, Aden said. “He had enough to really do some significant damage,” the chief said. Early media reports said the gunman entered the Walmart, but police later confirmed that the shooting took place outside.

for how to keep our pets at a healthy weight? — Janice W. in Minnesota Janice, it’s sad but true! According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, more than 50 percent of adult cats and 50 percent of adult dogs are considered overweight. There are a few positive things you can do to help maintain a pet’s weight that will

keep it healthy. Here are some hints: • Feed only at the scheduled times, preferably two to three small meals a day. • Don’t feed pets any “people food” unless OK’d by the vet! • Use praise and love instead of food! Most commercial treats are loaded with sugar, which can be a big factor in obe-

Kiwanians host WDTN weatherman Davis John Coffield, program chairman of the month, introduced Brian Davis as the guest speaker at a meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Sidney on June 12. Davis is the chief meteorologist for WDTNTV Channel 2 in Dayton. Davis said he joined WDTN-TV in July 1982. Prior to going to Dayton, Davis worked at Weather Station Inc. in Norman, Okla. A native of Troy, Davis attended Wright State University and received a Bachelor of Science in atmospheric science from Purdue University in 1981. Davis spoke of the many changes in TV weather reporting from the time he started in


1981 until today. When he started, weather boards with magnets were common. Today, everything is computergenerated and is accessible at the touch of a button. Computers have also made a big difference in forecasting. “Today’s forecast five days out is as accurate as the 48-hour forecast was 30 years ago,” he said. In answer to a question about recent “weird” weather, Davis said there have always been weather events out of the ordinary. He mentioned the recent 100year anniversary of the great flood. The area received around 12 inches of rain over a period of a couple of days, he noted.

So he said he is not convinced recent years are any different than the past. He said that the Miami Valley, due to population density and geographic features like trees, is not conducive to storm chasing. Prior to the speaker’s remarks, President Phil Warnecke called the meeting to order. The invocation was given by Bob Anthony and the group was lead in song by Ralph Bornhorst, accompanied by Don Tangeman on the piano. Coffield led the Fun & Games activities which, in honor of the guest speaker, were a number of trivia questions regarding weather.

ish Club, basketb a l l , softball and Juni o r Scholars.

Club to learn about chemical safety MINSTER — The Minister Livestock 4-H Club will learn about farm safety Sunday at 7:15 p.m. at Minister Elementary School. Meghan Bennett, Cargill outreach coordinator, will teach kids about various hazards in rural areas, including chemical safety. According to the National Safety Council, agriculture is the nation’s most dangerous industry. Between 1995 and 2000, nearly 700 youth died on farms and ranches in the United States, according to the 2004 Journal of Safety Research. “Chemicals can sometimes be more apparent on a farm,” said Bennett. “But realistically, chemicals are everywhere. Just look under your kitchen sink.” Bennett partners with Farm Safety For Just Kids to offer safety education for youth. Farm Safety For Just Kids was founded 25 years ago by an Iowa farm wife after the death of her son in a gravity-flow grainwagon accident. The organization promotes a safe farm environment to prevent injuries and death by educating our youth. “Cargill is proud of our 25 year relationship with Farm Safety For Just Kids,” said Fred Oelschlaeger, Farm Service Group leader with Cargill AgHorizons.” We greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with Farm Safety For Just Kids to help keep our most valuable resource — our kids — safe on the family farm.” For more information, visit

meals because I enjoy eating healthy foods and my parents and grandmother do not. Most of my meals are cooked in a microwave oven. My grandmother keeps telling me that foods cooked in a microwave are very unhealthy and could cause all kinds of health problems. I talked with my science teacher, and he said that foods cooked in a microwave are safe to eat. Who is right? I hope it’s my teacher. — Janie, Dallas, Tex. JANIE: In conventional cooking, heat is applied from the outside and gradually penetrates food, but microwaves cook the interior of foods directly by causing water molecules to vibrate, thus causing heat. According to the University of California Wellness Letter, microwaving is like steaming — an excellent way to preserve nutrients and is one of the better cooking methods.

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, June 24, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Don’t push your luck today when talking to parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs or the police. Authority figures will likely respond with, “Talk to the hand.” (Oh dear.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This continues to be a tricky day with others. Avoid controversial subjects. Expect delays and obstacles with travel and anything related to higher education, medicine and the law. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is not a good day to ask for money or help from others. Just batten down the hatches and go into survival mode. Things will improve later this week. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Although your focus is on partners and close friends, communications are poor today. Postpone important discussions for about 48 hours. (You’ll be glad you did.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Focus on being cooperative at work today because in fact, many people are obstinate and disagreeable. Don’t join the crowd. Take the high road. (Why do otherwise?) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Romance is a bit rocky today. In fact, sports events, relations with children and social occasions are all prone to disputes and tense discussions. Easy does it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with family members

are a bit tense today. Knowing this, avoid touchy subjects. Do not wake the sleeping dragon. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some days communications flow easily and some days they don’t. This is one of the days when they don’t. No biggie - just be aware of this. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a poor day to enter into disputes about finances, possessions and shopping choices. People are not in the mood to compromise or agree. (Just so you know.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) It’s difficult talking to friends and partners today because things feel stiff and repressed. Conversations are like two ships passing in the night. Oh well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is not the day to air repressed grievances, especially at work. It won’t go over well. Later this week, you’ll have an opportunity to do so. After all, timing is everything. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Discussions with others, especially females, are repressed and stilted today. Don’t worry about this because it will be gone in a few days. Just cope as best you can and avoid controversial subjects. YOU BORN TODAY You have a wonderful imagination, and you’re playful. In fact, many of you are able to turn your hobbies into full-time work. It’s easy for you to acquire particular technical skills; but you are also spiritual and passionate in your pursuit of truth. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Mindy Kaling, actress/writer/producer; Mercedes Lackey, author; Mick Fleetwood, musician.


Sidney Daily News, Saturday, June 22, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, June 23, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be careful dealing with parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs today, because today's Full Moon heightens tension with authority figures. Tread carefully. (Zip thy lip.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because of the Full Moon. Keep things light, for your own self-preservation. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a poor day to discuss how to share anything that is jointly held or how to divide an inheritance. People are at odds today and they feel territorial and possessive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place. That's why relations with partners and close friends are so tense. Easy does it. Be patient. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Avoid disputes with co-workers and clients today at work. Today's Full Moon makes everyone feel emotional, pushy and inclined to tell others what to do. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Parents should be patient with their kids today, because today's Full Moon can make them upset. Don't get caught up in a power trip about who is in control. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today the classic standoff between career and job versus home and family might take place. Avoid pushy arguments with family members. Go gently. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is an accident-prone day for your sign because of the Full Moon energy. Watch out for the actions of others, especially if you are driving, walking or jogging. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might feel obsessed about something to do with finances and cash flow today. Perhaps you're determined to buy something. Best to lighten up. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place, which creates tension between you and others. Don't try to make others over or tell them what to do. Mums the word. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Issues behind the scenes or something that is in the back of your mind might trouble you today. Don't worry; this is just Full Moon energy that we all have to deal with. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Avoid disputes with others today, especially in groups. This is a particularly emotional Full Moon day, which is why people are inflexible and entrenched in their point of view. YOU BORN TODAY All relationships are important to you, especially romantic ones. Friends and family are close. However, you also love the arts, music and literature. You're a people watcher and you love to know what motivates others. Many of you love to read and become immersed in fiction. Good news: Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Selma Blair, actress; Frances McDormand, actress; Zinedine Zidane, soccer player.

There are two kinds of infection with tuberculosis, active and latent. In active tuberculosis, people are infectious, coughing out large amounts of bacteria, and only one is needed to cause infection. Active tuberculosis is treated with multiple antibiotics, usually four at a time. A chest X-ray will diagnose active tuberculosis.


Most people, however, only become latently infected, and are not infecThis latent tious. infection is discovered by a skin test or a new blood test called QuantiFERON Gold. The chest Xray is normal in latent tuberculosis, and most people are advised to have treatment with one or two drugs to kill any tuberculosis bacteria and prevent active disease. Everyone with active disease gets scarring in the lungs, and the scars usually are visible on chest X-ray. In most cases, the scar doesn’t cause any symptoms. However, the scar sometimes affects the lining of the lungs, and when this happens, many people do complain of chest discomfort. The lungs themselves don’t have nerves, but the lining, called the pleura, does. Having had tuberculosis doesn’t prevent you from having other, serious causes of chest pain, and since yours occurs with activity, you should get evaluated for other lung or heart problems — especially angina, which is caused by blockages in the arteries in the heart.


100 years June 22, 1913 The question of park improvements was discussed at great length when a number of citizens from the south end of the city met last evening with Mayor Duncan, Service Director Warner and Safety Director Nessler. It was agreed that parks in that section of the city should be improved and kept in better condition. The appearance of the plot of ground on West avenue, opposite the Jones and Sheets elevator along the Big Four railroad, could be improved if the proper persons would look after it. The ground has been permitted to grow up in weeds and is an eyesore to everyone. ––––– Miller McVay is 83 years old today.

Heat, LeBron secure places in NBA history BY TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade was walking down the hallway toward the Miami Heat locker room in the wee hours of Friday morning, still in uniform and fussing with the new championship hat atop his head as his team and their families were in the midst of partying the night away. He stopped briefly and assessed the celebration. “We’re getting pretty good at these,” Wade said. That’s understandable, the Heat are getting plenty of practice at throwing themselves end-of-season parties. Four trips to the NBA Finals since 2006, three championships in that span and with the last two titles coming consecutively, it’s making the decisions that the Heat and LeBron James made three summers ago look pretty smart. By topping San Antonio in Game 7 of a back-and-forth NBA Finals on Thursday, the Heat became the sixth franchise in league history to win consecutive championships. It’s their third title overall; only four clubs have more. And for James, it capped two seasons where he won all he could — two regular-season MVPs, two titles, two Finals MVPs, even an Olympic gold medal. “It feels great. This team is amazing. And the vision that I had when I decided to come here is all coming true,” James said. “Through adversity, through everything we’ve been through, we’ve been able to persevere and to win back to back championships. It’s an unbelievable feeling. I’m happy to be part of such a first-class organization.” James said winning his first title was the toughest thing he’s ever done. It’s now the second-toughest. Defending the crown, he

Goodell tells Ohio group NFL is leading on safety BY DAN SEWELL The Associated Press CINCINNATI (AP) — The NFL commissioner said Friday that the league accepts and is taking a leadership role in improving sports safety at all levels. Roger Goodell spoke Friday morning to the National PTA convention. The Parent Teacher Association has urged its members to seek improved head-injury reporting and training in schools, and Goodell said they should push for properly trained coaches and safe equipment. “It is our job to lead the way,” Goodell said, adding that the NFL is in the position to have a wide impact and takes that responsibility. “We recognize that role. We recognize that people watch our athletes on the field, watch everything we do. And we have to do what we can to make our game safer, so that every other game … every other sport, is played safely,” he said. The National Football League is facing a federal lawsuit over concussion-related injuries by thousands of former players, and concerns about head injuries have caused some parents to hesitate to allow their children to play football. President

Barack Obama has said he would have to think “long and hard” about letting a son play football. Goodell said the NFL has taken actions to improve safety with rules against “dangerous techniques,” more protective equipment, and research such as a $60 million partnership with General Electric Co. to develop for athletes in all sports better headgear, diagnostic tools, and more understanding of brain injuries. He and other speakers Friday emphasized the benefits of playing sports for young children. They said sports participation helps children get healthy activity, usually results in better school performance, and develops attributes such a discipline and teamwork that will help them throughout life. Goodell said the NFL will partner with the PTA in a program this fall called “Back to Sports” promoting youth health, fitness and safety. LaVar Arrington, a former Redskins All-Pro linebacker, told the convention that football “has shaped and molded me in so many ways.” He promotes an initiative by USA Football called Heads Up Football that teaches techniques for young players to avoid head contact.

“There needs to be a premium placed on doing it the right way,” Arrington said of the NFL-supported initiative. Goodell told the school activists they should push to have their coaches certified; to be able to recognize symptoms of concussions or dehydration and when a young player needs to come out and when medical attention must be sought. He said they also should make sure children have safe, well-fitting equipment. The father of 12-year-old twin daughters he says play soccer and lacrosse, Goodell said: “The safety of our kids is the most important thing.” Among those in the audience was Darrell Andrews, an education consultant and speaker from Bear, Del. He said he has two sons and has been concerned about the quality and motives of youth football coaches he has seen for some teams. “Coaches are not being thoroughly vetted; that’s a mistake,” Andrews said, recounting seeing his 9-year-old son play against a team whose coaches were celebrating hits that hurt young players. “I think the focus here on the parent level has been missing over the years, so I think that’s good.”

Kazmir, Kipnis pace Indians to 5-1 win over Twins CLEVELAND (AP) — Scott Kazmir allowed one run in seven strong innings and Jason Kipnis drove in three, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 5-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

Kazmir (4-4) gave up just a leadoff homer to Brian Dozier in the sixth and four other hits. The left-hander struck out seven, including five in his final two innings. Kazmir has been a pleasant addition for

the Indians, who signed him during the winter after he pitched for the independent Sugarland Skeeters last season. Kipnis hit a sacrifice fly — to the second baseman — off

Samuel Deduno (3-2) in the third and added a two-run single in the seventh as the Indians won their third straight and seventh in nine games since losing eight in a row.

GOBA RIDER Robert Hackney, of Wilmington, GOBA BIKER Tim Conner, of Cincinnati, pushes his recumbent bicycle past the GOBAville main tent set shaves at a portable shower station set up in the up next to Sidney Middle School Friday. Sidney High School soccer field parking lot Friday.

GOBA “Gobaville: Ohio’s largest moving town” by GOBA staff and riders. “We were sure to head out early this morning because we heard it was going to be a hot one today,” said cyclist Amanda Vukovic, of Troy, N.Y. Vukovic was right about the heat, as temperatures reached the mid-80s Friday. The bicyclists counted themselves lucky with the overall weather they’ve dealt with this past week. “The weather has been awesome — not too humid with only some headwind,” said Anne Bragg, of Marietta. Welcoming thousands of visitors into a community does not go without extensive preparation. Barga said that the Rotary Club has been preparing for GOBA since this past fall. “We have just volunto organize teered things, put together maps and help out the bikers, really,” said Barga. The grounds at the Middle School were covered in vendor tents of all sizes and colors, a souvenir sales tent, one for bike repairs, food vendors, shower trucks, and a massage therapy tent. An information tent was staffed by volunteer members of the Sidney Rotary Club. On the desks were maps, restaurant menus, brochures and pamphlets for visitors. Riders would approach the desk and study the maps for awhile, asking where a variety of things would be located around town. By midday, the sun was streaming down on

From Page 1 the Middle School parking lot, making the luggage-collection process a sweaty mess. But no one was angry. Everyone was smiling and helpful to one another. Cheers of encouragement and congratulation were cast to the riders just coming in by those who had already pitched their tents and collected their luggage. For them, this was vacation. “The entire week has been pretty chill, but this last part here on Friday, people have tended to relax a bit more,” said Steve Miller, of Baer Wheels, a bike repair and sales shop in Columbus. He had traveled the bike route in his shop’s van all week. Kevin Colwell, a gun salesman of Englewood who participated in the ride, said he began biking to get back in shape. “After I had two minor strokes and really bad cholesterol, I thought to myself, ‘Either do something to improve your body, or you’re not going to be here that much longer,’” he said. Since then, he has participated in bike tours all around the state, but this was his first time with GOBA. Theater teacher John Shillington, of Sonoma County, Calif., was part of an 11-member family group, who pitched tents in what shade they could find. “The only reason I’m doing this,” Shillington said with a smirk, “is because I said, ‘I’ll only go if my sisters go,’ and I asked them. They said, ‘Sure! Why not?’ So now I’m here.” His two sisters, a brother and their

children had made the tour together. One of Shillington’s friends, Nati Ezaz, 34, of Toronto by way of Ethiopia, also pitched his tent in the shade. “I met John while visiting California,” said Ezaz, “and this is my first bike tour, but it has been very good.” Sidney Downtown was bursting with activity as the Spot set up outdoor picnic tables and many shops set up outdoor stands. Businesses across the city of Sidney had prepared for the arrival of GOBA by planning special entertainment and events. Some of the events included a disc jockey on the downtown courtsquare, a historic walking tour led by the Shelby County Historical Society, a GOBA photography exhibit and beer tasting at the Gateway Arts Council gallery, a dinner and activities by Sidney First United Methodist Church, a showing of the feature film, “Jimmy,” at the Historic Sidney Theatre and live entertainment on the courtsquare. The Sidney Chamber of Commerce expected $50,000-$70,000 to spent in Sidney over the riders’ stay, GOBA has also been enjoyable for the participants. All the riders appreciated the hospitality given to them in their week at GOBA. “It’s amazing, the way each town has prepared for us, coming out in droves with the events and the food; the nonprofits giving us food and water,” a Pittsburgh rider said.

Storyteller educates, entertains SMS students To capture the attention of hundreds of sixthgrade students during the last week of school is no small feat. Professional storyteller and educator, Kevin Cordi was able to do just that. Cordi visited Sidney Middle School as a part of a reading-language arts workshop for sixthgraders. In the morning, he was introduced to students at an assembly during which he captivated his audience with the West African folklore of Anansi the Spider and how Anansi came to be the keeper of the stories. Cordi was first introduced to the art of storytelling through the stories his mother and father shared of their childhood in Appalachian West Virginia. For more than 20 years, Cordi has been living his passion of telling stories throughout the United States, England and Japan. His animated and energetic style invites students into the world of his stories, making him an extremely dynamic and influential storyteller and teacher. Cordi spent the morning in workshops with smaller groups of students, speaking to them about the art of storytelling and answering their questions with not just answers, but fascinating stories. When asked what his favorite

STORYTELLER KEVIN Cordi entertains and educates sixth graders at Sidney Middle School during the last week of school. story was, he bellowed into a dramatic and touching story of how the dove became the symbol of peace. Without actually saying it, he implied that he makes whatever story he is telling at the moment his favorite and makes it a favorite of his audience as well. He told students, “We are all story tellers. It is in our nature to tell stories. When we pick up a phone and call a friend, we don’t say, ‘Hi, I just called to tell you about the quadrilateral equation.’ We call and tell people the story of our day. Life is a story.” He went on to explain that 70 percent of all communication is non-

verbal, so our expressions and movement are just as important to the art of storytelling! Students in one class were so enthralled with one of his “answers,” a story, that you could hear a pin drop. “He was completely captivating,” said sixthgrade RLA teacher, Diane Dexter. After lunch, he worked with a group of 18 students for about an hour to dramatize a simple story which they would perform in front of their peers. Before the performance, he gave the group a little pep talk in which he reminded them about the barrier between the stage and

the audience. “These are your peers. You’re going to look out and see familiar faces, but don’t break the barrier of the stage. You have to ignore the fact that you know them and just put on a great show!

In a short period of time, you’ve put together something amazing! You all should be proud.” And when he introduced them, he said, “I love to travel to schools and do this program because I get to see talent. Let me tell you something, in Sidney there is a lot of talent!” The students went on to perform a very entertaining story that Cordi entertainingly narrated of a queen, a prince, a princess, and two fearless little girls and their encounter with a very scary cloud surrounding a bridge. As the two fearless girls soon found out, inside the cloud was a tiny talking pebble, and once they threw the pebble over the bridge, the cloud was gone. The story reinforced what was inherently learned by the students on that stage that day – you’ll never get to where you want to go if you let

fear cloud your path. In the workshop sessions with the students, Cordi asked, “Why does our first attempt have to be our last?” in regards to being creative. Creativity is a process where there is no right or wrong. He had them recite an impromptu creed – “I give myself permission to make mistakes, to listen, to laugh…I am a storyteller. Let the stories begin.” Dexter was able to bring Cordi to SMS through a McDonald’s MAC Grant she wrote last fall. The MAC Grant provides up to $500 for meaningful, hands-on activities to enhance the learning process for students in kindergarten through eighth grades. The MAC Grant program is sponsored by local McDonald’s restaurants and endorsed by the Ohio State Teachers Association.

Wrong-way crash on U.S. 33 sends 6 to hospital Lima. They were taken to Joint Township hospital along with Germann. The hospital refused to release information on their conditions, but Coffey said none of the occupants of the van suffered serious injuries and were expected to be treated and later released. Both vehicles were traveling at 65 mph when the crash occurred. The drivers tried to avoid each other and did not meet exactly head on, Coffey said. Kaiser was cited for violation of a traffic control sign, a minor misdemeanor, Coffey said.

Volunteers help at Betty’s LIMA — Betty’s Farm hosted a group of 16 PERRY proTECH volunteers recently. A PERRY proTECH employee donated paint in warm, sensory-friendly colors that will be used to transform various rooms at Betty’s Farm. The donor and his associates also weeded and tilled several gardens. Participants in the day program will grow vegetables from these

gardens and then donate the harvested produce to Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen in Lima. Betty’s Farm is part of Bittersweet, Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides services to adolescents and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in Whitehouse, Pemberville, Lima and Middletown. Bittersweet engages in a model which employs meaning and motivation,

aerobic and active engagement, partnership and purpose, and structure and support. This provides a community of interdependence and a holistic, healthy environment in which the potential of each person is envisioned and developed. Every interaction is a lesson in reciprocal communication, relationship building, and mutual cooperation between staff and participant.

Honda begins production of Pioneer Martin named CEO

TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. — South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley joined more than 900 associates and guests at Honda of South Carolina Mfg., Inc. recently to celebrate the production start-up of the all-new line of Honda’s next generation side-by-side vehicle), (multiutility the 2014 Pioneer. HSC is investing $27 million in the Timmonsville plant over the next four years and has added more than 65 new jobs for side-by-side production, which HSC is manufacturing for the first time. “Today, we celebrate a new South Carolina-

made vehicle, powered by the passion and the pride of all Honda associates who are committed to exceeding the expectations of our Honda Powersports customers,” said Brian Newman, president of HSC. In addition to being manufactured in South Carolina, the new Pioneer was designed and engineered by Honda’s R&D operations in the U.S. In addition to the production start-up for the new side-by-side product line, HSC is celebrating its 15th Anniversary (July 1, 2013) of producing Honda powersports products. To commemorate this company mile-

stone, HSC is donating $100,000 to Francis Marion University to assist in the development of a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering Program which will begin in the spring of 2014. HSC began production of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in July 1998 with a workforce of approximately 200 associates. The initial $30 million, 200,000 square foot ATV manufacturing plant was the beginning of Honda of South Carsignificant olina’s growth in Florence County. In fall 2000, operations expanded to add engine production to the plant. Now, a

535,000-square-foot facility employing 650 associates with a cumulative investment of $308 million, HSC has produced nine different ATV models since its start in 1998, including the FourTrax and SporTrax series, and seven different engines. “The university is grateful to Honda of South Carolina for their generous support of our new Industrial Engineering program,” said Fred Carter, president of Francis Marion University. “Over the last fifteen years, Honda has been a very supportive corporate friend and partner. Their latest gift is yet another example of their commitment to

Francis Marion and the Pee Dee area. Their benevolence continues to make a significant difference in the lives of our students.” congratulate “We Honda of South Carolina in their new Honda sideby-side production accomplishment,” said Gov. Nikki Haley. “We are also excited that Honda has chosen to create more jobs in Timmonsville and bring a more than $27 Million investment opportunity to the state of South Carolina. When a worldclass company like Honda increases its footprint in the Pee Dee region, it shows that South Carolina is a great place to do business.”

Troopers received reports of a vehicle driving recklessly on Interstate 75, southbound near milepost 64, in Montgomery County at 11:05 a.m. on June 20. Troop-

ers stopped a 2000 Bravada, Oldsmobile with Michigan registration, for a marked lanes violation. The driver was subsequently arrested for OVI. An administrative inventory of the vehicle revealed a bag containing Methadone, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and Alprazolam pills, in addition to 148 Suboxone Strips. The driver, Williams J.
