Rain doesn’t keep away the crowds Liberty Days deemed successful FORT LORAMIE — It rained every day at this year’s Liberty Days, but that didn’t keep people away, event organizers said. “I think it was very well-attended,” said Gina Boerger, a festival committee member. Most of the rain was “just a drizzle,” she said, and “there was no heat to deal with.” The Fort Loramie Service Club sold out of barbecue chicken in less than two hours on Thursday, even though the group added 200 dinners this year, Boerger said. She the group sold 650 dinners. Rain didn’t deter players in the volleyball tournament, either. “Those

players just played right through it,” Boerger said. A downpour occurred Saturday about 6 p.m., Boerger said. “That was the hardest that it rained all weekend.” It lasted only about 15 minutes, and most people remained at the festival. “It just sent them under the tents,” she said. Fireworks Saturday night closed out the three-day festival. “It really was a clear night for that,” Boerger said. “This was by far the biggest crowd we’ve had for the fireworks.” Another popular attraction SaturSee LIBERTY/Page 6B

Delayed celebration Area residents enjoy the show as fireworks explode over Sidney Middle School Friday night. The display was postponed from Thursday because of rain and thunderstorms in the area.

Sidney Police are investigating a stabbing that occurred at the Waffle House early Saturday morning. A man who fled from the scene has been arrested in Kentucky in connection with the stabbing. Nathan W. Marlow, 30, was arrested in Middlesboro, Ky., on Saturday. Police said Marlow has been charged with felonious assault. Marlow Saturday at 3:07 a.m., police officers responded to the Waffle House on a report of a stabbing. Upon arrival, police learned there had been an argument between Marlow and another man, age 35. During the argument, Marlow reportedly had stabbed the 35-year-old man in the abdomen and then fled the area. The victim was taken to Wilson Memorial Hospital and was then transported to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. Police have not identified the stabbing victim. According to witnesses, Marlow drove away accompanied by a woman. Initially, the woman was wanted for questioning, but on Sunday police said they no longer were seeking her.

Local businesses reap benefits of Country Concert BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN NEWPORT — Mike and Mary Jo Barhorst, of Fort Loramie, will celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary this year. They’ll enjoy a little party, as they have every year since their children began hosting one in 1981. Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and some other musicians will entertain and about 57,000 people are expected to attend. The party is called Country Concert ’13 and it will kick off its 33rd annual, three-day celebration Thursday at Hickory Hill Lakes in Newport. Area businesses are glad Paul Barhorst and his brothers, Tony, Brian, Mark and See CONCERT/Page 6B

Changes coming for annual concert event NEWPORT — Repeat visitors to Country Concert will find some welcome changes at Hickory Hill Lakes for the 2013 edition. There are more than 100 additional deluxe camping sites with 50-amp electrical hookups, some of which are still available. And the stage area of the Sunkist Speedway Saloon performance venue has been expanded. “Our talent in the saloon has been incredible, and we want more people to enjoy it,” said Paul Barhorst, general manager of Hickory Hill Lakes. “The tent is 50 feet larger with an open end. And we raised the stage so there’s a better

viewing area.” A new display will feature a product that’s not been available at the concert in the past. Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy and Lemonberry Shandy will be sold from a display that includes the company’s giant Adirondack chair, where concert-goers can pose for photos. Three giant HD video screens, which were introduced last year, will be back, Barhorst said. The screens will fill with projections of the stars and up-andcomers that attract some 57,000 people to the campground annually. “We’re excited to have

Jason Aldean doing a show,” he added. “He’ll be here on Thursday and then he has two sold-out shows at Fenway Park in Boston on Friday and Saturday. He’s reached the next level of superstardom that he can sell out stadiums. Having a stadium headlining artist at Country Concert will be a lot of fun.” Saturday’s headliner, Brad Paisley, will include a laser light show “like we’ve never had before,” Barhorst said. It will feature a smart phone app through which audience members can change the color of the lights as the performance progresses.

STUDENTS PRACTICE robotics during the STEM Academy at Edison Community College.

Edison engages young minds with summer camp PIQUA — Edison Community College is offering an entertaining and engaging way for students entering grades 8-10 to spend part of their summer vacation. The college will be offering its popular STEM Academy (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) July 22-25 on the Piqua campus. Students attending the STEM Academy will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of sessions ranging from computers and website design to medical technology and robotics. There will be a 2 1/2hour session in the morning and one in the afternoon where students can interactively experience a variety of high-tech fields from Edison staff and faculty. This year’ academy will feature a crime scene investigation program, where students will explore a simulated crime scene and use evidence techniques to try and determine what really happened. “We wanted an opportunity for students to really develop their projects in a hands-on environment,” said Patti Ross, dean of information technology and engineering. “This is the second year for this academy and we’ve made it very activitybased to get students involved.” Also featured this year will be a session

called Take a Bite of Raspberry Pi, which gives students the tools and instruction on how to build a microcomputer, create simple games and use it to stream videos or television. An additional session will provide them with opportunity to work with digital cameras and web-based editing tools to learn the basic techniques of photo editing and web site design. A session titled Sometimes You Can Get a Free Lunch will teach students about open source software available for free download, which includes everything from simple games to complete operating systems. In addition to classroom work, students will have the opportunity to work with iStan, a human patient simulator, which will demonstrate how technology and electronics affect medical care. Another hands-on session will teach students to build and program robots. Registration is limited to the first 100 students. Registration for daily sessions begins each day at 8 a.m. with one 2 1/2-hour session in the morning and one in the afternoon. Lunch is provided and the day’s sessions end at 2 p.m. For more information, including the registration form, visit EMacademy.

Some school district employees to carry guns N E W C O M E RSTOWN (AP) — An eastern Ohio school district will allow some employees to carry guns on school property beginning this fall. The Newcomerstown Exempted Village School District board recently approved a policy authorizing employees designated by the board and superintendent to carry guns. The (Dover-New Philadelphia) Times-Reporter says the district released few details of the plan that will go into effect in the coming school year. Board President Jerry Lahmers says

it would be counterproductive if the general public knew how many people were authorized to carry weapons or in which buildings they worked. Those carrying guns must get tactical training and be recertified by the Tuscarawas County Sheriff ’s Department annually. They also must have a permit to carry a concealed handgun. Schools officials say the policy should help keep students safe. ————— Information from: The Times Reporter,

How Ohio budget’s new heartbeat law works COLUMBUS (AP) — A new law on fetal heartbeat detection for abortion seekers was tucked into Ohio’s recently passed state budget. It shares similarities with the high-profile “heartbeat bill” debated and sidelined last session but also has key differences. The two-year, $62 billion operating budget also included several other measures. They limited government funding for Planned Parenthood clinics and public hospitals that provide abortions and prohibited rape counselors receiving taxpayer dollars from recommending abortion facilities to women impregnated by their attackers. The fetal heartbeat law would have the broadest impact since it applies to virtually every abortion sought in the state. Here are answers to key questions about what the new law means: Q: I heard Ohio law will now require informed consent. What does that mean? A: It means that a procedure must be performed to check for a detectable fetal heartbeat and that information must be shared with the pregnant woman before she consents to an abortion.

Q: How will doctors check for the presence of the heartbeat? A: The law requires doctors to use their “good faith understanding of standard medical practice” to check for the heartbeat, or to rely on future rules adopted by the Ohio Department of Health. The law says those rules can’t require anything but an external exam. Q: What happens if a fetal heartbeat is detected? A: Once informed, the woman would still be free to get an abortion. It is for this reason that backers of last year’s un“heartbeat successful bill” say the new law won’t prevent any abortions. Their bill would have prohibited abortions in cases where the fetal heartbeat was detected, sometimes as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Although it doesn’t block abortions, opponents of the new informed consent law argue it puts undue emotional burden on the pregnant woman and poses new legal risks for doctors. Q: What if a doctor fails to check for a heartbeat? The abortion A: provider faces a first-degree misdemeanor charge on the first offense and a fourth-degree felony charge on each subsequent offense.

Bill to link veterans to OH bonuses via tax info CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio legislator and state treasurer candidate wants income tax returns used to help locate veterans eligible for Ohio bonuses and make sure they don’t miss out on their money. Voters in 2009 approved a $200 million bond issue funding bonuses for eligible veterans of the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq war eras. But there has been concern that thousands still may not know about the money. Democratic State Rep. Connie Pillich, of suburban Cincinnati, says her bill would provide space on Ohio income tax returns for taxpayers to indicate whether they, their spouses or dependents were active duty military during the bonus periods. Names, addresses and terms of service would be forwarded to the Department of Veterans Services to help reach veterans.

THE SWING Era Band, with vocal trio Simple Harmony, will perform in concert on the courtsquare Friday at 7 p.m.

Swing Era Band to perform The Sidney Civic Band will present the Swing Era Band in a free concert Friday at 7 p.m. on the courtsquare. Attendees should take lawn chairs. The Swing Era Band has been entertaining swing music fans and dancers throughout western and central Ohio for most of the past four decades. Created in 1975 by

Andrew “Bud” Ledwith, late of Sidney, Swing Era has specialized in keeping the sounds of the golden age of swing music alive. This 16piece band features some of the finest musicians in western Ohio. Swing Era will perform a variety of big band music including tunes from noted bands led by Artie Shaw, Woody Herman and

Glenn Miller. Joining the band will be the Simple Harmony, a versatile vocal trio, whose sound lends a renewed vitality to great American vocal standards. This singing ensemble is known throughout western Ohio for the fresh sounds they give to great American music, and are regular performers with Swing Era

band, in the tradition of great harmonic vocal groups that sang with the big bands during the golden age of swing. The trio comprises Sidney residents Mary Knapke, Sherri Heidemann and Bob Schroerlucke. In case of rain, the concert will be at the Sidney First Church of God, 1510 Campbell Road.

Ohio loan debt causes higher taxes for employers COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio employers have been paying millions in higher taxes for the state’s failure to repay a federal loan to cover unemployment benefits during the recession, a reported newspaper Sunday. The state’s failure to repay the $1.5 billion federal debt has left Ohio employers with a $272 million tax increase over the past 18 months, The Columbus Dispatch reports. Ohio taxpayers have paid an additional $136.5 million in interest on the debt since 2011, with another interest payment of $48.5 million due in September. Employers pay state and federal payroll taxes to fund jobless benefits. But Ohio was among 36 states that didn’t have enough reserves when the recession hit and were forced to borrow from the federal government to keep paying jobless benefits. U.S. Department of Labor figures show Ohio is among 22 states owing a combined $21 billion. While Ohio has

repaid about $1 billion in principle the past two years, its $1.5 billion debt is bigger than every state but California, New York and North Carolina, the newspaper reported. A panel of business, labor and legislative leaders created to oversee the state’s unemployment trust fund hasn’t met in more than three years and the lone remaining member’s term expired Sunday. The Unemployment Compensation Advisory Council is to include six representatives of business and labor appointed by the governor and six lawmakers named by House and Senate leaders, but no appointment has been made in at least two years. In that time, Ohio’s federal employment tax rate has been increased twice, with a third increase set for Jan. 1. Those increases equate to an additional cost of $63 per employee, according to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. “This is painful because it starts adding

up,” said Andrew Doehrel, president of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce and a former council member. He says other states have approved bonds to pay off the debt so employers are not paying as much and some shored up their unemployment funds by raising taxes on employers and cutting benefits. “The biggest thing the governor can do is create jobs,” said Gov. John Kasich’s spokesman, Rob Nichols. “We’ve been able to drive down the debt by $1 billion and will continue to look for ways to pay it down.” Nichols says Ohio began borrowing two years before Kasich took office and the governor plans to make appointments to the council soon, when he has assurances members will work toward a reasonable plan. Former board members say agreeing on a plan to ensure that Ohio’s unemployment trust fund doesn’t pay more in benefits than it collects in tax revenue and getting lawmakers

to approve it won’t be easy. States failing to repay their loans within a certain time automatically will have a reduction in their tax credit on federal unemployment taxes paid by employers, with the revenue used to pay off their debt. Sen. Capri Cafaro, a Youngstown Democrat and former council member, said proposed tax increases have been met with resistance because policymakers worry about the effect on businesses. “It’s a very delicate balance, but the time might be right for us to really engage and get this resolved,” she said. Vermont officials last week announced a plan to pay off that state’s $53 million debt, three years after the state reduced benefits to unemployed workers. Other states have done things like structuring their systems to increase employer taxes when the trust fund reaches a certain level, enacting special assessments to repay loans, and scaling back benefits.

Food safety costs cause concerns AKRON (AP) — Expected costs from proposed federal rules to make the nation’s food system safer are causing concern among some farmers and state agriculture officials. The proposals are part of the Food Safety Modernization Act approved in 2011, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The legislation is among changes within the Food and Drug Administration aimed at making the nation’s food system safer by pinpointing where contamination occurs. Officials are still determining how to implement the law, and regulations won’t be finalized for several years. But one northeast Ohio farmer says he will no longer grow vegetables for local tables because the proposed requirements would cost too much. Don Bessemer, who runs a farm within the city of Akron, says he has closed his Bessemer

Farms market that sold to local retailers. “We don’t want to quit, we were forced out of the business,” Bessemer said. Bessemer says he has turned to soybeans because the law doesn’t apply to commodity crops grown for uses like oil. The law focuses mostly on produce like lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, green onions and fruits that are usually eaten raw and often are at the center of nationwide recalls due to contamination. Farmer Chris Saal says he will continue his Walnut Drive Gardens business in Portage County’s Suffield Township. But he acknowledges that the expected costs are a concern for farmers. Saal said he already has aggressive safety standards and hopes he won’t have to make many changes. Sereana Dresbach, deputy director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, says the

rules are still proposals. The public can comment until at Sept. 16 and adopted rules likely won’t begin until 2015 and would be phased in over several years. Dresbach favors a safer U.S. food system, but says Ohio would have to double the agriculture department’s food safety budget to enforce the rules as proposed. “Sure it sounds good, but how do we pay for it?” Dresbach said. Dresbach wants rules that are flexible enough to adjust for states that have good working practices and that give states the ability to grant local variances. The proposed rules also may be a financial burden that some produce growers can’t overcome, she said. Farms likely will be required to hire an auditor to inspect their operations for about $5,000 per audit, with some farms possibly requiring several audits.

The FDA estimates the cost of implementing the rules will be about $4,700 a year for very small farms, $13,000 for small farms and $30,500 for large farms. Size is determined by a farm’s annual business. Farms selling less than $25,000 of produce annually and those selling directly to the public without going through a third party would be exempt. FDA estimates about 79 percent of all U.S. produce farms won’t have to comply. The agency’s figures show the rules are expected to save 1.7 million Americans from food-borne illness annually. But Bessemer estimates the proposed requirements would cost him at least $100,000 to comply and another $30,000 a year for inspections. Farrners would have to maintain records on trucks transporting the produce and employees handling it, among other things.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, July 8, the 189th day of 2013. There are 176 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 8, 1776, Col. John Nixon gave the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence, outside the State House (now Independence Hall) in Philadelphia. On this date: • In 1663, King Charles II of England granted a Royal Charter to Rhode Island. • In 1853, an expedition by Commodore led Matthew Perry arrived in Yedo Bay, Japan, on a mission to seek diplomatic and trade relations with the Japanese. • In 1889, The Wall Street Journal was first published. • In 1907, Florenz Ziegfeld staged his first “Follies,” on the roof of the New York Theater. • In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson received a tumultuous welcome in New York City after his return from the Versailles Peace Conference in France. • In 1947, demolition work began in New York City to make way for the new permanent headquarters of the United Nations. • In 1950, President Harry S. Truman named Gen. Douglas MacArthur commander-in-chief of United Nations forces in Korea. (Truman ended up sacking MacArthur for insubordination nine months later.) • In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower began a visit to Canada, where he conferred with Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and addressed the Canadian Parliament. • In 1962, just after midnight local time, Alitalia Flight 771, a DC-8, crashed as it was approaching Bombay (Mumbai), India, killing all 94 people on board. • In 1972, the Nixon administration announced a deal to sell $750 million in grain to the Soviet Union. (However, the Soviets were also engaged in secretly buying subsidized American grain, resulting in what critics dubbed “The Great Grain Robbery.”) • In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford announced he would seek a second term of office. • In 1994, Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s communist leader since 1948, died at age 82. • Ten years ago: In Senegal at the start of a five-nation tour of Africa, President George W. Bush called American slavery one of history’s greatest crimes as he stood at the very spot where hundreds of thousands of Africans had been bought and sold like cargo.


Dog rides trapped under hood DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — South Florida firefighters came to the rescue of a dog that traveled 5 miles while trapped under the hood of a car. The Broward Sheriff's Office says firefighters were called Thursday afternoon to Dania Beach to free the dog. The animal had been trapped between the car's axle and steering mechanism. A sheriff's office spokesman says the dog suffered no injuries, even though it had been driven roughly 5 miles from Hallandale Beach. It wasn’t immediately clear how the dog became trapped.

Flight too slow before crash BY JOAN LOWY Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pilots of Asiana Flight 214 were flying too slowly as they approached San Francisco airport, triggering a warning that the jetliner could stall, and then tried to abort the landing seconds before crashing, according to federal safety officials. The Boeing 777 was traveling at speeds well below the target landing speed of 137 knots per hour, or 157 mph, said National Transportation Safety Board chief Deborah Hersman at a briefing Sunday on the crash. “We’re not talking about a few knots,” she said. Hersman said the aircraft’s stick shaker — a piece of safety equipment that warns pilots of an impending stall — went off moments before the crash. The normal response to a stall warning is to increase speed to recover control. There was an increase several seconds before the crash, she said, basing her comments on an evaluation of the cockpit voice and flight data recorders that contain hundreds of different types of information on what happened to the plane.

At least 5 dead in train derailment LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec (AP) — As firefighters doused still burning oil tanker cars, more bodies were recovered Sunday in this devastated town in eastern Quebec, raising the death toll to five after a runaway train derailed, igniting explosions and fires that destroyed the downtown district. With dozens of people reported missing, authorities feared they could find more bodies once they reached the hardest-hit areas. Quebec provincial police Lt. Michel Brunet said Sunday that about 40 people have been reported missing, but cautioned that the number could fluctuate up or down. “We met many people who had reported family members missing. Right now I can tell you about 40,” Brunet said. Brunet confirmed two more deaths early Sunday afternoon after confirming two people were found dead overnight. One death was confirmed Saturday. All but one of the 73 cars were filled with oil, which was being transported from North Dakota’s Bakken oil region to a refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick. The eruptions early Saturday morning sent residents of Lac-Megantic scrambling


THE DOWNTOWN core lies in ruins as firefighters continue to water smoldering rubble Sunday in Lac Megantic, Quebec. A runaway train derailed Saturday igniting tanker cars carrying crude oil. through the streets under the intense heat of towering fireballs and a red glow that illuminated the night sky. Local Fire Chief Denis Lauzon likened the charred scene to “a war zone.” “This is really terrible. Our community is grieving and it is taking its toll on us,” Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche said. On Sunday afternoon, Prime Minister Stephen Harper toured the town where a large part of the

downtown area has been leveled. “This is an unbelievable disaster,” Harper said. “This is a very big disaster in human terms as the extent of this becomes increasingly obvious.” Harper said the whole country is worried about the missing and is praying for the town. “This is an enormous area, 30 buildings just completely destroyed, for all intents and purposes incinerated,” Harper

Fervent foes devote their lives to fracking fight VESTAL, N.Y. (AP) — Big energy companies have been trying for five years to tap the riches of the Marcellus Shale in southern New York, promising thousands of new jobs, economic salvation for a depressed region, and a cheap, abundant, clean-burning source of fuel close to power-hungry cities. But for all its political clout and financial prowess, the industry hasn’t been able to get its foot in the door. One reason: Folks like Sue Rapp and Vera Scroggins are standing in the way. Rapp, a family counselor in the Broome County town of Vestal, in the prime shale gas region near the Pennsylvania border, is intense and unrelenting in pressing her petitions. Scroggins — a retiree and grandmother who lives across the border in hilly northeastern Pennsylvania, where intensive gas development has been going on for five years — is gleefully confrontational. She happily posts videos of her skirmishes. The anti-fracking movement has inspired a legion of people like Rapp and Scroggins— idiosyncratic true believers, many of them middle-aged women, who have made it the central mission of their lives to stop gas drilling using high-volume hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus region that underlies southern New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. They are not necessarily popular; they have been shunned by former friends who support drilling and the

economic benefits it brings. Their opponents accuse them of distorting the truth about fracking’s impacts by insisting that their communities and surrounding countryside will be transformed into a polluted industrial wasteland if natural gas interests have their way. But many of those same opponents acknowledge that Rapp, Scroggins and others like them have been effective. “There’s no denying that their actions have had an impact,” said Jim Smith, spokesman for the Independent Oil and Gas Association of New York. “If they weren’t doing what they’re doing, we would have been through with this a long time ago. They’re wrong on the facts but they’re very loud and very vocal, and that gets noticed for political reasons.” Their cause is amplified by an extensive coalition — including deeppocketed environmental groups, New York City lawyers, organic farmers, doctors, paid professional activists and celebrities — that has waged a relentless campaign urging Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ban fracking. The Democratic governor continues to delay his decision, leaving drillers and landowners with leases in limbo since 2008. That’s when the state launched a study of the environmental impact of fracking, which frees gas from shale a mile or so underground by injecting chemically treated water and sand into a horizontal well bore.

said. “There isn’t a family that is not affected by this.” The search for victims in the charred debris was hampered because two tanker cars were still burning Sunday morning, sparking fears of more potentially fatal blasts. Lauzon said firefighters are staying 500 feet (150 meters) from the burning tankers, which are being doused with water and foam to keep them from overheating. The multiple blasts came over a span of several hours in the town of 6,000, which is about 155 miles (250 kilometers) east of Montreal and about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of the Maine border. It is a picturesque lakeside town in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. The derailment caused at least five tanker cars to explode in the downtown district, a popular area packed with bars that often bustles on summer weekend nights. Police said the first explosion tore through the town shortly after 1 a.m. local time. The fire then spread to several homes. Brunet said he couldn’t say where the bodies were found exactly because the families have not been notified.

Heinz Kerry hospitalized BOSTON (AP) — Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, is in critical but stable condition in a hospital in Nantucket, Mass. Heinz Kerry, 74, was admitted into the emergency room at Nantucket Cottage Hospital after 3:30 p.m. Sunday, hospital spokesman Noah Brown said Heinz Kerry arrived at the facility in critical condition, and remained that way early Sunday evening, although doctors had stabilized her, Brown said. Brown said he could not immediately release any more details about the patient’s condition or her illness. Nantucket Police Lt. Jerry Adams said a call requesting medical aid was received just after 3:30 p.m. for a home on Hulbert Avenue, and an ambulance was dispatched. Online records show the property is connected to Heinz Kerry’s family. Heinz Kerry is the widow of former U.S. Senator John Heinz, heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune. She married John Kerry in 1995. Doctors treated her for breast cancer in December 2009. She previously has said she found in late September that year that she had cancer in her left breast after having her annual mammogram. A month later, she underwent lumpectomies on both breasts at a Washington hospital after doctors also discovered what they thought was a benign growth on her right breast. That diagnosis was initially confirmed in postoperative pathology, but two other doctors later found it to be malignant. In November 2009, Heinz Kerry had another pair of lumpectomies performed at Massachusetts General Hospital.

stop himself from being “overemotional.” What should I do? One minute I love him and the next I despise him. Please tell me what you think I should do. — Nameless, Naperville, Ill. NAMELESS: A guy who goes on regular “terror binges” is not safe to be with. Trust me, one of these days he’ll carry out his threats to you — unless he’s arrested first for violence toward someone else. I urge you to sever your relationship with him immediately. His irrational behavior far outweighs whatever is fun and decent about him. He needs professional help — and he knows it, which is why he gets so defensive about being called “crazy.” DR. WALLACE: I smoke. My grandfather keeps telling my parents that teens who smoke

wind up using drugs. I’m 17 and have smoked with my parents’ permission, but I have never ever done drugs and I don’t intend to. Please print my letter. That way my parents will know that I’m serious when I tell them I won’t do drugs, and maybe my grandfather (who is a good man) will get off my case. —Nameless, Sidney, Ohio NAMELESS: Not all people who smoke move on to drugs, but more than 80 percent of all drug users smoke, according to the American Lung Association. Your best option is to do neither!

Enjoy opportunities to travel. Today in particular, a female acquaintance might help you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) People in authority will seek out your creative input about something today. (They might know about something you have achieved in your personal life.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Do something to shake it up a little because you want a change of scenery. Of course, ideally you would love to jet off somewhere and really blow this popstand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a good day to ask for assistance or support. You might also want to ask for a loan or a mortgage or if you can borrow something that someone owns. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You’re working hard now to clean up loose de-

tails and finish projects at work. However, when working with others, be prepared to compromise and accommodate their needs. (Just for today.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Despite your urge to play and goof off, you can actually be productive at work today. A female acquaintance might help you. Accept this offer. YOU BORN TODAY You’re sensitive, careful and observant. You wait, watch and strategize — then you act! You like to move at your own pace. While you wait, many of you will quietly perfect a technique. (You dash forward to win, then pull back to safety.) A major change might take place in the year ahead, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: Arthur Ashe, tennis champion; Virginia Wade, tennis champion; Jake LaMotta, boxing champion.

the skin and development of muscle atrophy. In the worst cases, movement can be limited, muscles can shrink further and bone loss can occur. CRPS is best treated by an expert, often an anesthesiologist or pain-medicine specialist, and there are several different types of treatment, including oral medication (many different types), topical medications and physical therapy. Injections to block the nerve sometimes are helpful. Trigger-point injections also are often helpful. DEAR DR. ROACH: I read that if one is taking a statin drug (like Simvastatin) for cholesterol management, one also should take the supplement CoQ10. If so, why, and in what daily dosage? I also read that one should take it twice daily rather than once, as it

passes through the system quickly. Is this true? — S.D. ANSWER: The body uses the vitamin-like coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to metabolize statin drugs. In some people, the levels in the body can become depleted, and this is thought to be one reason why people can develop muscle aches during treatment. I have had some success in treating muscle aches with CoQ10. However, since the risk of developing muscle aches is low, I wouldn’t recommend using it unless you develop problems. If you decide to try it, the dose would be 150-200 mg daily. Taking half the dose twice daily is OK, but so is taking the full dose at the time of the statin. Both pravastatin and fluvastatin have less risk of muscle aches than the other statins.

100 years July 8, 1913 The two big barns and corn crib on the farm of George W. Zedaker, northeast of Sidney, were totally destroyed by fire about 9 o’clock last night. During the heavy electrical storm the lightning struck the east corner of the new barn and it spread rapidly to the old barn and corn crib, and in less than an hour all three were destroyed. The loss is estimated at between $3,000 and $4,000, partially covered by insurance. ————— The Citizens Coal and Ice Co., the new company recently organized in this city, commenced making ice in their new plant today. The plant has a capacity of 25 tons of ice every 24 hours and is so erected that the capacity of the plant can be doubled with a relatively modest additional investment. The company is capitalized for $10,000 and the following officers and directors have been named; W.T. Johnson, president; H.J. Taylor, vice president, John Oldham, secretary and treasurer; Harry E. Bennett, manager with B .T. Bulle, H.N. Dickensheets, G.C. Cyphers, the other members of the board of directors.

July 8, 1963 County commissioners discussed today the need of possible expansion of county home facilities after getting reports that approximately 20 persons are now on the waiting list for admission to the institution. Most of the applications have been in behalf of persons who have expressed willingness to pay the cost of caring for inmates at the home. Six have been filed within the past two weeks. Those costs, as fixed by county commissioners, are $3.32 per day for room resident and $4.65 per day for those needing hospital care.

DEAR HURT AND LONELY: When someone gets a post office box so that he or she can carry on a furtive romantic correspondence, it is cheating. When he kisses and embraces someone in a romantic fashion, that’s cheating too. When he confides his deepest feelings to a woman other than his wife, what he does is widen the gulf between them. On the deepest levels, your husband has been unfaithful to you. It appears he has perfected the “art” of lying to himself in order to justify his behavior. My heart goes out to you.

REPLAY 50 years ago July 8, 1963 Newport and Fort Loramie registered convincing victories in the Western Ohio Pony League on Sunday. The Newporters swamped Minster 10-0 behind the two-hit hurling of Denny Monnin. Monnin, in holding the Minster crew to a pair of singles, fanned eight and walked two while his teammates collected five hits off Grimm. Dale Marchal’s two-run double in the bottom of the first gave Newport a three-run start.

25 years ago July 8, 1988 Fort Loramie remained unbeaten in the Shelby County Acme Tournament and as a result, the Redskins can sit back and await the winner of tonight’s loser’s bracket final between Anna and Houston. For Loramie, Jeff Sanders went the distance, striking out nine. Willie Schulze had three doubles, Ted Mescher three singles and Rob Turner two hits and four runs batted in.

10 years ago July 8, 2003 The formal groundbreaking for Sidney Memorial Stadium will be held tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. at the stadium site near the baseball and track/soccer facilities behind Sidney High School. “This is a community stadium and anyone interested is welcome to join us,” said stadium steering committee chairman Doug Stewart.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We were just so dominant. I'm just absolutely gutted.” — IndyCar driver Marco Andretti, after dominating at Pocono but finishing 10th because he was short on fuel

WHAT YEAR WAS IT? Stan Musial tied for fifth in home runs with just 16, but he led the National League in hits (228), doubles (50), and triples (20) by such a wide margin that his 366 total bases were 83 more than the NL runnerup. He also led the league in hitting at a robust .365. What year was it? Answer: 1946

ON THIS DATE IN 1939 — Bobby Riggs beats Elwood Cooke in five sets to win the men's singles title at Wimbledon. 1941 — Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox hits a three-run, two-out homer in the ninth inning to give the American League a dramatic 7-5 victory in the All-Star game at Detroit's Briggs Stadium. 2011 — Ohio State vacates its wins from the 2010 football season, including its share of the Big Ten championship and a victory over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl. Responding to the NCAA's investigation of a memorabilia-for-cash scandal that cost former coach Jim Tressel his job and led quarterback Terrelle Pryor to leave school, the university also waives a $250,000 fine imposed on Tressel and changes his resignation to a retirement. The university also puts the football program on probation for two years.

Murray ends Britain’s wait First Brit to win Wimbledon men’s singles title in 77 years LONDON (AP) — Andy Murray needed one more point, one solitary point, to win Wimbledon — a title he yearned to earn for himself, of course, and also for his country. Britain had endured 77 years since one of its own claimed the men’s trophy at the revered tournament referred to simply as The Championships, and now here was Murray, on the brink of triumph after 3 hours of grueling tennis against top-seeded Novak Djokovic under a vibrant sun at Centre Court. Up 40-love, Murray failed to convert his first match point. And his second. And then, yes, his third, too. On and on the contest, and accompanying tension, stretched, Murray unable to close it, Djokovic unwilling to yield, the minutes certainly feeling like hours to those playing and those watching. Along came three break points for Djokovic, all erased. Finally, on Murray’s fourth chance to end it, Djokovic dumped a backhand into the net. The final was over. The wait was over. A year after coming oh-soclose by losing in the title match at the All England Club, the No. 2-ranked Murray beat No. 1 Djokovic of Serbia 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 Sunday to become Wimbledon’s champion in a test of will and skill between a pair of men with mirror-image defensive styles that created lengthy points brimming with superb shots. “That last game will be the toughest game I’ll play in my career. Ever,” said Murray, who was born in Dunblane, Scotland, and is the first British man to win the grasscourt Grand Slam tournament since Fred Perry in 1936. “Winning Wimbledon — I still can’t believe it. Can’t get my head around that. I can’t believe it.” For several seasons, Murray was the outsider looking in, while Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Djokovic collected 29 out of 30 Grand Slam titles. But now Murray has clearly and completely turned the Big 3 into a Big 4, having reached the finals at

defeat, Murray’s voice cracked and tears rolled as he told the crowd, “I’m getting closer.” How prescient. Four weeks later, on the same court, he beat Federer for a gold medal at the London Olympics, a transformative victory if ever there was one. And 52 weeks later, on the same court, he beat Djokovic for the Wimbledon championship.

“You need that self-belief in the important moments,” observed Djokovic, a six-time major champion, “and he’s got it now.” Murray’s mother, Judy, who is Britain’s Fed Cup captain, agreed that the setback 12 months ago “was a turning point in some ways.” See MURRAY/Page 2B

Saunders shuts down Reds CINCINNATI (AP) — The young Seattle Mariners are glad to be going home after a solid road trip. Joe Saunders pitched seven efficient innings and Nick Franklin and Justin Smoak each homered to lift the Mariners to a 3-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Seattle won four of six on its brief road swing, taking two of three against both Texas and Cincinnati. “It was a real good road trip,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. “You play Texas team that has 50 wins on the road and here the same thing. It’s fun to see the light come on with the younger guys.” Franklin hit Arroyo’s 10th pitch of the game 380 feet into the right field seats for his sixth home run of the season and second in the first inning in three games. He hit a tworun homer on Friday off of Mike Leake, also in the first inning. Smoak extended the lead to 3-0 with a two-run drive into the left field seats on the first pitch he saw from Arroyo with two outs in the third inning. The 378-foot shot, which followed Kyle Seager’s oneout walk, was Smoak’s seventh. The Mariners got key home runs in the first inning of all three games. Franklin hit a two-run home run off Mike Leake on Friday. Kyle Seager hit a two-run homer off Mat Latos Saturday.

SEATTLE MARINERS' Nick Franklin, left, rounds the bases past Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart, right, after hitting a solo home run of Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo in the first inning during a baseball game on Sunday in Cincinnati. Franklin’s solo home run Sunday got Seattle off to a fast start. “I was down two strikes just trying to make contact the best I can,” said Franklin, the Mariners’ first pick in the 2009. The second baseman’s contract was selected from Tacoma on May 27. Smoak added to the lead to allow the veteran Saunders room to work.

“Smoak is one of those that the light is coming on. To drive the ball the other way, shows he is getting better,” Wedge said. Smoak is more concerned with driving in runners in scoring position than home runs. “It’s been dreadful getting runners home from scoring position,” Smoak said. “That’s number one for me. I feel

great at the plate but it I need to get those guys across home plate.” The third-year first baseman was hitting .133 with runners in scoring position when the game started. A day after the Reds scored 13 runs, they managed just six hits and a run off Saunders. The left-hander allowed only two base runners to reach third in the first six innings and retired 11 consecutive batters before Chris Heisey doubled into the left field corner with one out in the fifth inning. Saunders (7-8) walked none and struck out two while winning back-to-back starts for the first time this season. “I felt good,” Saunders said. “They (Reds) have some guys that can hurt you so you have to keep the ball down,” Saunders said. Charlie Furbush pitched a 1-2-3 eighth and Tom Wilhelmsen was perfect in the ninth for his 18th save, helping the Mariners improve to 10-2 against the Reds since interleague play began in 1997. The Reds went down in order in six of their nine innings. The Reds broke up the shutout bid in the seventh with back-to-back one-out doubles by Todd Frazier and Heisey before Saunders finished his day by getting Ryan Hanigan and pinch-hitter Derrick Robinson to ground out.

Davis tops fan vote

DANICA PATRICK (10), David Gilliland (38), Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (17), Kyle Busch (18), J J Yeley (36) and Casey Mears (13) slide along the wall of the front

stretch after colliding on the final lap during the NASCAR Sprint Cup auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., Saturday.

Another frantic plate-race finish DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — There’s one certainty about racing at NASCAR’s most unpredictable tracks: a chaotic ending. Jimmie Johnson dominated the latest restrictor-plate race Saturday night, winning at Daytona International Speedway for the second time this year and joining another exclusive list at the famed venue. The five-time Sprint Cup champion became the first driver since Hall of Famer Bobby Allison in 1982 to sweep both points races at Daytona in the same season. Fireball Roberts (1962), Cale Yarborough (1968) and LeeRoy Yarbrough (1969) also accomplished the feat. Johnson joined them after leading 94 of 161 laps, including 55 of the final 57. But like so many other races at Daytona and Talladega, where horsepower-sapping plates

generally keep speeds below 200 mph, it came with a frantic finish. There were two multicar wrecks on the final lap, the second one just a few feet shy of the finish line. “Be glad you were sitting in the stands and not in the cars,” runnerup Tony Stewart said. Scott Speed and Carl Edwards got together in turn 2, starting a six-car pileup. Instead of ending the race under caution, NASCAR decided to let the cars race to the line. With drivers maneuvering for position through the final turns, David Gilliland and Danica Patrick got tangled, turning Patrick’s car into several others. Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Jeff Burton and other were involved. “I asked my crew when the checkered fell to remind me why I do this,” driver/owner

Michael Waltrip said. “What’s fun about it? ... I just know that 200 miles an hour pushing and shoving — this is fun for the fans and it’s going to be fun to watch back on TV. I wasn’t having any fun doing it. “I was too nervous. I’d much rather watch. Why don’t I just watch all the time? I’ve got that option. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.” There’s little drivers can do to avoid all the turmoil that comes with plate racing. It happens at just about every race at Daytona and Talladega, where drivers, and everyone fans watching are always waiting for “the big one.” It usually happens late, too. Two months ago at Talladega, Stenhouse Jr. and J.J. Yeley triggered a frightening crash in the final few laps that sent Kurt Busch’s car airborne and on top of Newman’s car.

On Saturday night, the race was fairly clean until a six-car accident with 11 laps remaining prompted a red flag. That wreck included another vicious hit for Denny Hamlin. Hamlin’s car inexplicably turned right and spun hard into the frontstretch wall. It then turned back into traffic and was tagged hard by AJ Allmendinger in a hit that caused his car to lift off the ground. “We knew it was coming,” Johnson said. “Getting down to the end of these things, we knew it was going to get exciting.” That excitement can be painful, too. Hamlin and Allmendinger had to collect themselves after climbing from their wrecked cars. Hamlin missed four races earlier this season with a compression fracture in a vertebra in his lower back, and took a hard hit last Sunday at Kentucky.

Brantley lifts Tribe over Tigers CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians were down, in danger and nearing doom. They never buckled. They fought back. “We’ve got that neversay-die attitude,” first baseman Nick Swisher said. “The good teams pick each other up, and the bad teams pick each other apart.” Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Al Alburquerque as Cleveland, which blew a big lead, ended a sevengame skid against Detroit with a 9-6 win Sunday to trim one game off the first-place Tigers’ lead in the AL Central. Brantley, who hit a solo homer in the sixth and had a career-high five RBIs, drove a 3-1 pitch from Alburquerque (1-2) over the wall in right field as the Indians, a team capable of streaking in any direction at any time, recovered after their bullpen couldn’t protect a 6-1 lead against one of baseball’s best lineups. Detroit, which overpowered Cleveland in winning the first two games of the four-game series, had rallied to tie it 6-all in the eighth on Torii Hunter’s three-run homer off Vinnie Pestano. But the Indians didn’t quit. It’s not their style. “The boys came out and punched back,” Pestano said. “They didn’t hang their heads. It’s the personality we’ve got. It’s the closeness of this group.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Davis’ first-half power surge made him one popular All-Star. Baltimore’s first baseman with the cool nickname “Crush” slugged his way past Detroit’s Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera in the final week to claim the most fan votes in AllStar game balloting. Washington outfielder Bryce Harper used a final push to win a spot in the National League’s starting lineup. Right-hander Max Scherzer was one of a major league-best six Tigers chosen for the AllStar game July 16 at Citi Field in New York. St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina led the NL fan vote announced Saturday night. He is one of the Cardinals’ five AllStars, tops in the NL. “I think any time you are getting that recognition, not only from your fan base but from everybody across the nation, I think it feels good to know that people are watching,” said Davis, one of 30 first-time All-Stars. Mets young ace Matt Harvey and third baseman David Wright will represent the host team in the 84th All-Star game. Harvey, a first timer, received the most votes among NL pitchers in the player balloting, outpacing the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw. Baseball’s latest phenom, Cuban defector Yasiel Puig, didn’t make the NL team — at least not yet. The Dodgers outfielder with just one breathless month in the

big leagues is among five candidates for the final NL spot. “He’s done a tremendous job since he’s been up here and created a lot of interest throughout baseball with what he’s accomplished,” said Giants manager Bruce Bochy, who will lead the NL squad for the second time in three years. “This gives him a chance to get voted on the club if the public thinks they want to see him there.” The league that wins the All-Star game gains home-field advantage in the World Series. The NL won the last three Midsummer Classics and World Series titles. Davis finished with 8,272,243 fan votes to edge Cabrera, who had 8,013,874. Davis has 85 RBIs, matching his career high and only three fewer than Cabrera. But he has hit 33 homers, seventh best before the break in big league history—he has a week to catch Barry Bond’s 39. Davis is the second first-time All-Star to lead the voting, joining Seattle outfielder Ichiro Suzuki (2001). The AL starters: Davis, Cano, Hardy, Cabrera, Jones, Trout, Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista, Twins catcher Joe and Red Sox DH David Ortiz. The NL starters: Molina, Wright, Harper, Reds first baseman Joey Votto and second baseman Brandon Phillips, Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran, Colorado outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

MURRAY “Every time you have a really tough loss, a loss that really hurts you,” she said, “I think you learn a lot about how to handle the occasions better going forward.” Murray trailed 4-1 in the second set Sunday, and 4-2 in the third, before wiggling his way back in front each time. He won the last four games, breaking for a 54 lead when Djokovic flubbed a forehand, setting off a standing ovation and applause that lasted more than a full minute. When he got out of his changeover chair, preparing to serve for the title, an earsplitting roar accompanied his trek to the baseline. Djokovic missed a backhand, Murray smacked a backhand winner and added a 131 mph (211 kph) service winner, and suddenly one point was all that remained between him and history. That’s where things got a tad complicated. On match point No. 1, Djokovic capped a 12stroke exchange with a forehand volley winner. On No. 2, Djokovic hit a backhand return winner off an 84 mph (135 kph) second serve. On No. 3, Murray sailed a backhand long on the ninth shot. Now it was deuce. “I started to feel nerv-

From Page 1B

ous and started thinking about what just happened,” Murray said. “There’s a lot of things you’re thinking of at that moment.” The match continued for eight additional points. Seemed to take an eternity. “Just how that last game went, my head was kind of everywhere. I mean, some of the shots he came up with were unbelievable,” Murray said. “At the end of the match, I didn’t quite know what was going on. Just a lot of different emotions.” Any of Djokovic’s break points in that game would have made it 5-all, and who knows what toll that would have taken on Murray’s mind? But Murray erased the first two chances with a 116 mph service winner, then a forehand winner on the 21st stroke. At deuce for a third time, Djokovic conjured up a forehand passing winner to get his third break point. Murray dropped his head and placed his hands on his knees. The crowd clapped rhythmically and shouted, “Andy! Andy!” They couldn’t know it, but their man wouldn’t lose another point.

Post 217 wins 10-5 After getting rained out on Saturday, Sidney Post 217 traveled to Marysville Sunday and won 10-5 to put its record at 13-17. Sidney trailed 4-3 afer Marysville plated three in the bottom of the sixth, but struck for three in the seventh and

two in the eighth. Rusty Hodgson singled, doubled and drove in three for Sidney, and Dalton Bollinger, Dan Borchers and Mitch Gigandet all had two hits each. Jace Barga went 61/3 innings to pick up the victory.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, July 9, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Discussions with family authority figures will be interesting today. You or someone else will clearly speak their mind, which, in turn, could trigger opposition from someone holding the purse strings. Easy does it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Because you are enthusiastic about something today, be careful not to push the limits of someone's boundaries. A partner or someone older might disagree with you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might be excited about moneymaking ideas today. Unfortunately, someone at work might rain on your parade. Not to worry -- keep your ideas for future consideration. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's easy to put a lot of yourself into what you have to say today, which is why others are ready to jump on your bandwagon. However, responsibilities with children cannot be ignored. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your ability to research data is excellent today because you have wonderful powers of concentration. However, don't let someone older or more experienced discourage you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You will be successful dealing with groups today because you can inspire others to do what needs to be done. Don't worry about second-guessing yourself; just go forward with enthusiasm! LIBRA (Sept. to Oct. 22) In discussions with authority figures today, you'll be convincing because you believe what you're saying. Some naysayer might have criticisms that are financially related. (You can deal with this.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Do talk to others about travel plans or anything with publishing, the media, medicine and the law today, because you have great ideas. (Even if a female authority opposes you.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might see a way to cut through red-tape details regarding shared property, insurance matters, inheritances, taxes and debt. Believe in your ideas. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Discussions with partners are enthusiastic. It looks like things are all systems go! Don't worry about someone (likely a female) who is skeptical. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You're effective at work today, especially wrapping up old business. Move forward with your ideas even if you have to politely listen to objections from someone. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a playful, fun-loving day. Enjoy yourself and accept invitations to reunions or things from the past. Workrelated responsibilities can be dealt with swiftly. (Ignore criticisms.) YOU BORN TODAY You like to make sense of things. You take things apart to see how they work. You love serendipity and the intriguing way cycles are related. You study the past to investigate and learn so you can share your findings with others, because you are forever curious. Work hard to build or construct something this year, because your rewards will soon follow. Birthdate of: Tom Hanks, actor; Kelly McGillis, actress; Courtney Love, singer/songwriter.

LIBERTY day night was Tricky Dick and the Cover Ups. The band “brought a huge crowd from Cleveland,” Boerger said. The ground where people danced as the band played was “muddy and messy,” she said, but that didn’t keep people from having fun. “People just loved it.” The band apparently liked playing at the local festival. “They want to be booked for next year,” Boerger said. She said the band’s popularity is growing and it has a gig in Key West, Fla., this fall. Ohio State University’s Buckeye Mobile Tour was at the festival Friday, bringing interactive games and other acincluding tivities inflatable “jumpies” for kids as part of its statewide tour to promote OSU. The activities were free and the tour appeared at the festival

free of charge, Boerger said. She said tour operators complimented the community, saying Liberty Days was “one of the nicest events we’ve been at.” They said “all the kids were respectful of the equipment.” Although only one queen could be chosen in the Miss Independence contest Thursday night, Boerger said all six contestants were winners. Each of the girls completed patriotism projects. One of them, Hannah Meyer, raised more than $700 to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Another, Hailey Wray, supervised children at a story time project as they created thank-you stars that she later delivered, along with cookies, to veterans at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Boerger said, “I had a

veteran come up to me at the end of the contest and say, ‘All those girls should get $5,000. … All those girls did something that meant something to someone. It sure meant something to me.’” Miss Independence 2013 Maddie Geise received a $1,000 scholarship. Wray was first runner-up. Boerger said Liberty Days truly was a community event, as people pitched in to help. “We got a nice response from the community in our plea for help,” she said, referring to a news story in the Sidney Daily News. “People showed up to help set up and to clean up afterward.” She said a person who lives in California but was in town for a visit helped. “We really appreciate it,” Boerger said.

CONCERT Scott, have continued to manage what started out as their parent’s anniversary party. It now has a $12 million economic impact on the region, according to Sidney-Shelby County Chamber of Commerce President Jeff Raible. “This estimate was prepared using the most recent average visitor spending data available from TourismOhio, the state’s official travel and tourism office,” Raible said. “In addition, assumptions were made concerning other variables such as actual attendance volumes, local versus out-of-town attendees, and the number of overnight stays in hotel and area camping venues.” These economic-impact estimates are regional in nature, he added. Shelby County alone does not have enough hotel rooms to accommodate all visitors to Country Concert. Some guests stay in Miami, Auglaize, and other nearby counties. Managers of the Hampton Inn and the Comfort Inn, both in Sidney, said that their motels were sold out for the weekend by January. “The Kings Royal races at Eldora Speedway are the same weekend, so not all our weekend guests are here for the Country Concert this year,” said Stacy Nelson, general manager of Hampton Inn. The race usually results in sold-out bookings on its own, so area

KEN GEHRET, of Sidney, cleans up in front of the main stage at Hickory Hill Lakes RV Park Sunday in preparation for Country Concert, which starts Thursday. motels are losing money this year because the events are concurrent. Instead of selling out two weekends, they’ve sold out just one. Nelson said that event rates for the 94 rooms at the Hampton Inn are 15 percent above regular rates and she requires a two-night minimum stay. Atool Patel, general manager of Comfort Inn, said he raises rates for the motel’s 71 rooms by 25 percent during the Country Concert weekend and requires a three-night minimum stay. “It would be a substantial effect on our sales in July (if the concert were to discontinue),”

Patel said. Nelson agreed, but noted that the Hampton Inn operates at 80 percent occupancy all year long. “We’re sold out on weeknights every week of the year,” she said. “There’s a lot of corporate business.” Bob Mescher, owner of Keyhole Pizza in Fort Loramie, said that his business increases by 75 percent during Country Concert weekends. “I don’t know if it’s all Country Concert,” he said. “There are a lot of horse riders who don’t go to the concert, but they’re in the area for the party.” He looks forward to seeing

repeat customers from year to year, as about 80 percent of his diners are people who return because they liked the food when they had visited during a previous concert weekend. “I’ve met friends from all over the place who’ve come to the concert,” Mescher said. “I’ve been here 30 years. It’s like when you go fishing and you stop at some hole-in-the-wall place, but the food is good and you talk to the owner. When you go back, you’ll stop there again. Well, I’m seeing people now who haven’t been here for 15 years. They came to the concert for four or five years. Then they got married, had kids and stopped coming. Now their families are raised and they’re coming back. But they’re not wearing bikinis anymore. And they’re here for the music, not what they came for before,” he laughed. He might have been referring to drinking. Millie Terrell, Kroger store manager, said that liquor sales increase substantially during Country Concert weekend. “We put up extra displays of beer,” she said. “And sales of grab-and-go items in the deli increase by 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 percent a day.” At Walmart, Assistant Manager Di Parker said beer, pop, coolers, sunscreen, lawn chairs, swimsuits, sunglasses and tents are big sellers to concertgoers.

Time Capsule! Contrary to popular imagination, time capsules do not have to be buried. A good time capsule-one thta successfully preserves its contents before it is next opened after a planned period of time--requires only: A good storage container. A good place to keep the storage container. Careful consideration of what to include in the container.

Choosing a Good Location for the Container A cool (room temperature or below), relatively dry (about 35% relative humidity), clean, and stable environment (avoid attics. basements, and other locations with high risk of leaks and environmental extremes). Minimal exposure to all kinds of light; no exposure to direct or intense light Distance from radiators and vents

Choosing a Good Storage Container Choose a tightly closed container that will keep out light, dust and other air-borne pollutants, and water. The container materials should be chemically inert, e.g.” uncoated polyethylene (PET or PETE, recycle code 1) jar with a screw-top lid of the same material’ uncoated high-density polyethylene (HDPE, code 2) or polypropylene (PP, code 5); aluminum or stainless steel cans with matching screw-top lid; lignin-and acid-free cardstock boxes with snug lids (will keep out minimal, incidental water only).

Content Considerations Analog items are no machine-dependent, but digital items are; include the machine required for digital items and instructions for use Materials that have already withstood the test of time have proven to be long lasting; the longterm behavior of new materials is more unknown. Safer more traditional choices include: items printed or written with carbon-based ink on acid-and lignin-free, good quality paper; wellprocessed black-and-white photographs; non-corroding metals;textiles made of non-plastic fibers; glass; stone;ceramic;items made of uncoated PET, HOPE, or PP plastics. Further minimize the risk of unexpected chemical interactions among the time capsule contents by packaging each item: put each item or group of like items in acid- and lignin-free paper envelopes, folders, or boxes; uncoated PET zipper bags; or glass or PET, HDPE, or PP plastic vials with screw-top lids. Avoid including food items and plants or other living things. Include a list of the contents in the time capsule and why they were included. Minimize the risk of mechanical damage: put heaviest items at the bottom; prevent items from rattling around; ensure the weight of the contents within the time capsule container is evenly distributed; indicated on the outside of the container which side is up.
