Auction From page 1A for $600, which he plans to save for college. His parents are Angie and Andy Brautigam, of Sidney. The grand champion meat pen of rabbits was raised by Elijah Kuck, 13, of Anna. He is the son of Melanie and Craig Kuck and likes that raising rabbits is “fun and easy,” he said. Elijah will put the $1,550 his buyers paid into the bank, to split with his sister, Breah. “We show animals together, and we share whatever we get with each other,” he said. Cassidy Albers, 13, of Fort Loramie, explained what judges look for in a blue-ribbon rabbit: “How much meat it has on it. It has to be firm. Wide shoulders all the way back and a big round rear end.” Cassidy is the daughter of Jeff and Shelly Albers. She showed rabbits at two previous fairs. The most challenging thing about raising rabbits, she said, is “making sure you give it the right amount of food and water and making sure it’s tame, not too wild. I worked more with (the rabbit) before the fair and I petted it up real good so it was real nice,” she said in describing how her single fryer garnered reserve champion honors. It sold for $1,000, money that will go into Cassidy’s college fund. The reserve champion meat pen sold for $780. Corey Slusser, 17, of Houston, will use the funds to buy more rabbits for next year’s fair. He’s a member of Houston Livestock 4-H and is the son of Amy and Brad Timmerman

Due to the April 28th accident, the Pudlewski Family would like to extend our belated gratitude and appreciation for your thoughts and prayers. The Meal Train set up by Lehman for our family, and the help of our friends and neighbors during this difficult time has really been a Godsend for us. The Boy Scout Troops from Anna and Sidney contributed to our lawn care needs as well as our gasoline needs commuting to Dayton, then Lima, now down to Bellbrook. All has been much needed and we are thankful for all the help. Mr. Pudlewski will be coming home soon. Thank you for all your prayers. This has been and continues to be a tough time for our family. Thank you again for all you’ve done to help us through. The Pudlewski Family

CELINA — For more than 50 years, the Western Ohio Educational Foundation (WOEF) has responded to the educational needs of residents in Auglaize, Darke, Mercer and Van Wert counties by providing the resources to allow residents access to college instruction. In 1962, the foundation secured the funding to build and operate an institution of higher education. Since then, WOEF has remained strongly committed to the success of the Lake Campus. Second National Bank recently created a $1,000 scholarship to be administered through the Western Ohio Educational Foundation. The scholarship recognizes a college prep high school student from Darke or Mercer County who maintained a 3.0 GPA in high school and who will be attending WSU-Lake Campus and major in business. The WOEF Board awarded the initial scholarship for the 2013/2014 academic year to incoming Lake Campus freshman, Kali Yaney of Celina. Applications for next year’s award will be available online this fall. Mercer County DARE Boosters selected winning essays from Mercer County Schools and awarded each author $350 scholarships for the 2013/2014 academic year. Sadie Bruggeman from St. Henry High School and Rachel Hess from Parkway High School were among the winning authors. Mercer County DARE Boosters thanked the students for the important role each of them play in today’s society and in the future―they are tomorrow’s leaders. Each of the essay winners received commendations from Representative Jim Buchy, Ohio House of Representatives. The two young ladies were also awarded a Western Ohio Educational Foundation (WOEF) Matching $350 Scholarship since they will be attending Wright State University-Lake Campus in the fall. The WOEF Scholarship program offers a number of matching scholarships which effectively doubles the student’s scholarship award if they choose to attend WSU-Lake Campus.

Plans presented to the public in 2009 by the Salvation Army of Sidney to renovate part of the citadel at 419 S. Buckeye Ave. for a homeless shelter have changed, Maj. David Payne of the Salvation Army has confirmed. He said that recently the Salvation Army and the United Way shifted attention to individual homelessness in Shelby County. He said it is mostly single males who are homeless in Shelby County, not families. The former plans called for a family shelter to be built in the south end of the building. Funds were raised by the Salvation Army in 1994 for a homeless shelter. Nearly 20 years later, however, the situ-

ation has changed. “Plans must change, too,” Payne said. “I’ve got too many kids’ programs to have homeless men on the other side of the building. From a security standpoint it would be more logical to have the shelter elsewhere, and we’re working it out.” Ohio had Payne the fourth largest increase in homelessness since 2011 with a 7.3 percent hike, and a 24.1 percent increase since 2007, according to a point-intime assessment done by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Ohio had 13,003 homeless people reported in 2011, according to the Coalition

on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio. Since all of the shelters in Shelby County are special-needs shelters (for the domestically abused, substance abuse rehabilitation and mental health centers), there has reportedly been a gap in shelters for those who are simply homeless. Payne said they are working to address the needs of single homeless males in Shelby County. Starting his service in Cincinnati nearly a half-decade ago, Payne later moved to Concord, N.H., and last year took over operations in Sidney. “In my point-in-time assessment from the

United Way, I observed more single males than families, so I am working to make the shelter situation relevant to the problem,” said Payne. He also said the Salvation Army is working with Sidney City Council for zoning permission and to find a home or a proper building to purchase to provide a shelter for Shelby County’s homeless. Payne said the building will be in Sidney, but he is waiting on confirmation for the Salvation Army to approve his plan to go ahead with the purchase of a house and appropriate renovations. Payne said, “There are some places available I know I can afford.”

Brownfields From page 1A idled parcels of industrial or commercial land that are available for re-use. These lands are contrasted with greenfields — undeveloped land that could be used for development. Brownfield redevelopment has potential hurdles that greenfields do not face as they could have a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant present which complicates the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of the property. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties spurs economic develop-

ment, protects the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off undeveloped green spaces and working lands, Brown said. The BUILD Act would make nonprofits eligible for assessment grants and allow the EPA to award multipurpose grants that include multiple elements of a project, including site inventory, characterization, planning or remediation for one or more Brownfield sites. This will speed redevelopment by streamlining and increasing cer-

tainty on the clean-up process for towns and municipalities. The bill also provides technical assistance for rural communities and low-income communities, as well as waterfront sites and renewable energy facilities. Brown’s office released a county-by-county inventory of the more than 250 sites registered as brownfields across Ohio. Although the Ohio Brownfield Inventory provides an overview of Ohio’s brownfield properties it is not an exhaustive list of all brownfields in the state.

Castro pleads guilty in kidnap case Andrew Welsh-Huggins Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland man who imprisoned three women in his home, subjecting them to a decade of rapes and beatings, pleaded guilty Friday to 937 counts in a deal to avoid the death penalty. Ariel Castro told the judge he was addicted pornography, had a “sexual problem” and had been a sexual abuse victim himself long ago. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors recommended Castro be sentenced to life without parole plus 1,000 years. Castro, 53, said he understood that he would never get out of prison, saying he expected he was “going to get the book thrown at me.” He later added, “I knew that when I first spoke to the FBI agent when I first got arrested.” Castro, wearing glasses for the first time in court, was far more interactive than in previous court appearances when he mostly kept his head down and eyes closed. He answered the judge’s questions in a clear, intelligible voice, saying he understood the proceedings and that he would

never be released from prison. Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, said he could read and understand English well but had trouble with comprehension. “My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind.” He later said he had been a sexual abuse victim as a child, but the judge cut him off. Near the end of the 2 1/2-hour hearing, the judge accepted the pleas and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday. The deal comes more than a month after a statement issued on behalf of the women said they were “hopeful for a just and prompt resolution” and had “great faith in the prosecutor’s office and the court.” Castro had been scheduled for trial Aug. 5 on a 977-count indictment, but 40 counts were dropped as part of the plea deal. The indictment included two counts of aggravated murder related to accusations that he punched and starved one woman until she miscarried. The former school bus driver also was charged with hundreds of counts of kid-

napping and rape, plus assault and other counts. He was accused of repeatedly restraining the women, sometimes chaining them to a pole in a basement, to a bedroom heater or inside a van. The charges alleged Castro assaulted one woman with a vacuum cord around her neck when she tried to escape. The sticking point on a plea deal had been whether the prosecutor would rule out the death penalty. The three women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had accepted a ride from Castro, who remained friends with the family of one of the women and even attended vigils over the years marking her disappearance. The women escaped Castro’s house May 6 when one of them kicked out part of a door and called to neighbors for help. Castro was arrested within hours and has remained behind bars. News that Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight had been found alive electrified the Cleveland area, where two of them were house-

hold names after years of searches, publicity and vigils. But elation soon turned to shock as allegations about their treatment began to emerge. Castro fathered a 6-year-old daughter with Berry, authorities said. They allege that on the day the child was born, Christmas 2006, Castro raped one of the other women, who had helped deliver the baby. Berry told authorities that she, her child and the other women never saw a doctor during their captivity. Knight said her five pregnancies ended after Castro starved and repeatedly punched her. The Associated Press does not usually identify people who may be victims of sexual assault, but the names of the three women were widely circulated after they disappeared, and they appeared in an online video thanking the public for its support. The judge read their names in court Friday as the hearing was carried live on national cable news. Since their rescue, the women have sought to stay out of sight and have appealed for privacy.

ents, applauded the federal charges. “They are protecting the public from letting this happen again,” Deters said. Michael Lyon, who also represents Durrani, said the doctor is highly trained with a long track record. “He’s been practicing in this town since 1999. He’s never paid a penny on a medical malpractice case. Nor has he ever had a serious com-

plaint by any hospital,” Lyon said. One of those suing, Dana Setters of Trenton, Ohio, said she had a fusion surgery on her neck and a lower back surgery, and neither provided lasting relief from pain. “He ended up saying, ‘Don’t worry, I’ll fix you,’” she told WCPO TV of Cincinnati. “I’m in constant pain 24-7. I can’t drive. I can’t play or lift my little girl.”

fully. He said afterward that Durrani will defend against the charges in court. Durrani returns to federal court Aug. 19. He was released with restrictions on his travel and the condition he write to any patients who have appointments to advise them of the allegations against him. He also faces a slew of malpractice suits. Attorney Eric Deters, who represents 150 cli-

Post was sentenced to death for killing Elyria motel clerk Helen Vantz on Dec. 15, 1983. His attorneys sought mercy for Post ahead of his Jan. 16 execution date on the grounds that he was so obese that he could not be executed humanely. Republican Gov. John Kasich granted Post clemency in December citing poor legal representation, not his weight. S p o ke s wo m a n Ricky Seyfang said the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction classified the death as “expected.” She

said privacy laws prevented her from divulging whether Post’s weight was a factor in his death. Post had most recently been transferred to the Franklin Medical Center on Jan. 3, Seyfang said. “Long story short, we weren’t surprised by his passing,” she said. Kasich said in granting clemency that all criminal defendants deserve adequate defenses. “This decision should not be viewed by anyone as a diminishing of this awful crime or the pain it has caused,” he added in a statement. His decision mirrored the recommendation of mercy by the state parole board, which said it didn’t doubt Post’s guilt but said there were too

many problems with how he was legally represented 30 years ago. Kasich’s move was unrelated to Post’s betterknown argument: that he was too fat to be executed humanely under Ohio’s lethal injection procedures. Post had argued in federal court that executing him would amount to cruel and unusual punishment. His lawyers said he would suffer “a torturous and lingering death” as executioners tried to find a vein or use a backup method where lethal drugs are injected directly into muscle. Kasich commuted Post’s sentence to life with no chance of parole. Associated Press writer Ann Sanner contributed to this report.

Today in History By The Associated Press For release Saturday, July 27 Today is Saturday, July 27, the 208th day of 2013. There are 157 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 27, 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting. On this date: In 1789, President George Washington signed a measure establishing the Department of Foreign Affairs, forerunner of the Department of State. In 1861, Union Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan took command of the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War. In 1866, Cyrus W. Field finished laying out the first successful underwater telegraph cable between North America and Europe. A previous cable in 1858 burned out after only a few weeks’ use. In 1909, during the first official test of the U.S. Army’s first airplane, Orville Wright flew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Va., for one hour and 12 minutes. In 1921, Canadian researcher Frederick Banting and his assistant, Charles Best, succeeded in isolating the hormone insulin at the University of Toronto. In 1940, Bugs Bunny made his “official” debut in the Warner Bros. animated cartoon “A Wild Hare.” In 1942, during World War II, the First Battle of El Alamein in Egypt ended in a draw as Allied forces stalled the progress of Axis invaders. The Allies went on to win a clear victory over the Axis in the Second Battle of El Alamein later that year. In 1960, Vice President Richard M. Nixon was nominated for president on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention in Chicago. In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed the Kerner Commission to assess the causes of urban rioting, the same day black militant H. Rap Brown said in Washington that violence was “as American as cherry pie.” In 1974, the House Judiciary Committee voted 27-11 to adopt the first of three articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, charging he had personally engaged in a course of conduct designed to obstruct justice in the Watergate case. In 1980, on day 267 of the Iranian hostage crisis, the deposed Shah of Iran died at a military hospital outside Cairo, Egypt, at age 60. In 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. Antigovernment extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing.

Out of the Blue Judge fines woman who cursed at jury selection ERIE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman has been fined $500 for cursing because she was frustrated with being picked to serve on a jury. The Erie Times-News ( ) reports Erie County Judge Ernest DiSantis levied the fine Wednesday on Kathleen Port. DiSantis told the Erie woman she was “totally out of line” and explained jury service is a duty of citizenship. Port, whose phone number is unlisted, apologized several times but was fined nonetheless. She told the judge she was upset because jury service would make her miss work and cost her income. DiSantis says Port could have claimed a hardship on her jury service questionnaire, but did not. Port was also thrown off the jury, which was picked to hear an illegal weapons case. ——— Information from: Erie Times-News, http://www.

In this June 22 photo provided by Brookhaven National Laboratory, a 50-foot electromagnet Muon g-2 ring is transported as it crosses an intersection on the Brookhaven National Laboratory site on New York’s Long Island. The gigantic electromagnet ended its tedious journey early Friday at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, near Chicago, where it will be used to study fast-moving particles.

Giant magnet attracts rock-star status Jason Keyser and Scott Eisen Associated Press

GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (AP) — It skipped tolls. It had a Twitter hashtag and a GPS tracker. It even posed for photos with groupies. The 50-foot-wide, 15-ton electromagnet attracted a sensation wherever it went during its slow, delicate 3,200mile journey from New York to suburban Chicago. The land-and-sea trip culminated when scientists threw a rock star’s welcome for the mysterious, shrink-wrapped cargo on Friday as arrived at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory to help study blazing-fast particles. “‘Oh look, they found a flying saucer!’” retired software developer Chris Otis recalled thinking when he saw the massive, disc-shaped device when it made a pit-stop in a Costco parking lot. Otis used his cellphone to take photos as he and others marveling the contraption wondered what would happen if it suddenly went live. “I figure somebody at Fermilab is going to plug the damn thing in, turn it on and my watch is going to stop running, everybody’s hearing aides are going to sail across the room,” Otis said with a laugh. “I have no idea. Turn it on and the Martians will hone in on it.” Fermilab officials, however, plan to use the magnet in a physics experiment called

Muon g-2 that will study subatomic particles at their lab in Batavia, outside Chicago. The experiment will study the properties of muons, subatomic particles that live only 2.2 millionths of a second. The results of the experiment could create new discoveries in the realm of particle physics, said Chris Polly, manager of the Muon g-2 project at Fermilab. The hulking magnet is a hand-me-down from New York, where it was built in the 1990s with aluminum and steel by scientists at the Brookhaven National Lab on eastern Long Island. It has superconducting coils inside and, at the time it was built, was the largest electromagnet in the world. Brookhaven scientists no longer had a need for the electromagnet, and shipping it out to the Midwest for about $3 million was cheaper than the alternative. Constructing an entirely new electromagnet could have cost as much as $30 million, Polly estimated. In any case, at least they didn’t have to pay tolls on the parts of the journey that took it over land. “We’ve been assured that we don’t have to pay tolls, but we’re waiting to see if we get the violation notice in the mail. It’d be pretty hard to dispute,” said Fermilab spokesman Andre Salles, who was among the magnet’s traveling companions for about 10 days of the trip.

Moving the thing, however, was in some ways as complicated and as delicate a maneuver as building it. It could not be taken apart or twisted more than about an eighth of an inch without irreparably damaging the coils, Polly said. It started its trip in late June, floating by barge down the East Coast into the Gulf of Mexico — where it outran a tropical depression — then up the Mississippi River, where it was photographed drifting past St. Louis’ arch on its way into Illinois. “We had to hurry up and get going through the Gulf of Mexico and really have the tugboat pour it on,” Terry Emmert Jr., vice president of Emmert International, said while recalling the race to avoid the storm. His company moved the magnet across the country. Earlier in the journey, it spent almost a week docked in Norfolk, Va., because of bad weather, but the team traveling with it found a welcome diversion. “The port happened to be across the street from a minor league baseball stadium so the barge crew spent the whole week there,” Salles said. Just south of Chicago, it was hauled out of the water and strapped onto a specially made 16-axel flatbed truck for its final leg. It traveled at a mere 5 to 15 mph, with a behemoth bumper sticker informing puzzled onlookers that it was

“Driving discovery in particle physics.” It was a night owl that traveled after dark when roads weren’t as crowded, staging during the day at a Costco parking lot in suburban Bolingbrook and at a forest preserve. Thankfully, no damage was done along the way. “The whole thing went as smoothly as we could have wanted it too,” Salles said. The magnet had its own Twitter hashtag (#bigmove) so fans could keep up. And a specially built website with GPS to track the magnet became Fermilab’s most popular page. As word spread, thousands of people came out to watch it inch along. Some of them sat in lawn chairs. Others came to chat with the scientists. Television news helicopters swirled overhead. With a police escort, it finally rolled into the suburban Chicago lab shortly after 4 a.m. Friday with an “oversize load” sign and a waving American flag. During Friday evening’s celebration, Fermilab planned a community open house and magnetic experiments and lessons for children. The building where the magnet will ultimately be used is still under construction, so the magnet should be operational sometime in 2014. Keyser reported from Chicago.

Copacabana stages show for pope Bradley Brooks and Nicole Winfield Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Pope Francis presided over one of the most solemn rites of the Catholic Church on Friday, a procession reenacting Christ’s crucifixion that received a Broadway-like treatment befitting its improbable location, Rio’s hedonistic Copacabana beach. Copacabana, which hosts Carnival and Rolling Stones concerts when bikini-clad beauties aren’t sunbathing on its white sands, lived up to its reputation by staging a wildly theatrical, and very Latin telling of the Way of the Cross, complete with huge stage sets, complex lighting, a full orchestra and a cast of hundreds acting out a modern version of the biblical story. The procession is one of the mainstay events of World Youth Day, designed to remind young Catholics about the root of their faith that Jesus Christ died to forgive their sins. Francis tried to drive that home in remarks to the crowd, huddled in jackets on a chilly but finally rain-free night, telling them Jesus bears all the suffering of the world: of the families whose children fall prey to the “false paradise” of drugs, of the hungry “in a world where tons of food are thrown out each day,” of those who are persecuted for their religion, their beliefs “or simply for the color of their skin.” “Jesus is united with so many young people who have

lost faith in political institutions, because they see in them only selfishness and corruption,” Francis said in another reference to the violent protests that broke out in Brazil last month against rampant corruption and inefficiencies in the government. Francis started his day Friday with another World Youth Day standby, hearing the confessions of five young pilgrims in a Rio park. “It was just five minutes, it followed the regular ritual of confession, but then Francis stayed and talked with us,” said one of the five, Estefani Lescano, 21, a student from La Guaira, Venezuela. “It was all very personal. He told us that young people have the responsibility of keeping the church alive and spreading the word of Christ.” Later, Francis met privately with a few juvenile detainees, a priority ever since his days as archbishop of Buenos Aires and an expression of his belief that the church must reach out to the most marginalized and forgotten of society. Even now as pope, he calls a group of youths in a Buenos Aires detention center every two weeks just to keep in touch, and one of his most memorable gestures as pope has been his Holy Thursday Mass at a juvenile detention center in Rome where he washed the feet of young offenders. On Friday, other young offenders presented Francis with a large homemade rosary made out of Styrofoam balls, each one bearing the names

of the eight street children gunned down by police death squads in 1993 as they slept outside Rio’s Candelaria church — a notorious massacre that underscored the unequal treatment that outcasts often receive in Brazil. On the cross were the words “Candelaria Never Again” in Portuguese. In a sign that they too were part of the World Youth Day events, each of the youngsters wore one of the official festival T-shirts. Francis also had lunch with a dozen World Youth Day volunteers from around the globe, bringing them to tears when he asked them a simple rhetorical question on which to reflect: Why were they here having lunch with the pope while others were hungry in the slums? The sun finally came out on Friday, ending four days of rain that soaked pilgrims and forced the relocation of the festival’s culminating Mass on Sunday. Instead, the Mass and the Saturday night vigil that precedes it will take place at Copacabana beach rather than the mud pit covering the original site in Guaratiba, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of central Rio. The improved weather also provided a brighter backdrop for his words to young and old during his noon prayer, in which he praised the elderly for passing on wisdom and religious heritage. Francis has made a point of not just focusing on the next generation of Catholics during World Youth Day, but on

the older generation as well. It’s part of his longstanding work caring for the elderly in Argentina, the crucial role his own grandmother played in his spiritual development and the gentle deference he shows his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Speaking from the balcony of the residence of Rio’s archbishop, Francis noted that Friday is celebrated as Grandparent’s Day in much of the world and that young people should take the occasion to honor and thank their grandparents for the wisdom they share. “How important grandparents are for family life, for passing on the human and religious heritage which is so essential for each and every society!” he said. Francis spoke about the important “bridge” between young and old in his brief remarks to journalists en route to Rio earlier in the week, saying young Catholics have the strength to move the church forward while older Catholics have the “wisdom of life” to share that shouldn’t be discarded. “This relationship and this dialogue between generations is treasure to be preserved and strengthened,” he said Friday.

I, too, live in an area where the deer seem to eat any and all landscaping. Overpopulation of deer has become a major problem in many parts of the United States. You live in Ohio, where white-tailed deer are thriving. Since more land is being developed, deer lose their natural habitat, and the plants, shrubs and even trees that the deer eat are gone. White-tailed deer don’t have many natural predators, and their population can grow rather quickly, since does can have as many as three fawns each

year. Deer have been ring over the hook on known to eat just about clothes hangers, and hang anything! I’ve even had another hanger, with them eat my cactus!

Goodwill Easter Seals to construct new building DAYTON — Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley’s (GESMV) Board of Trustees unanimously approved plans to begin construction on its 100,000-square-foot Community Services Campus on South Main Street in Dayton. The facility will dramatically increase the agency’s capacity to serve more people with disabilities and other needs in a central, easily accessible location, agency officials said. The Agency provides more than 40 programs and services in a 23-county service area. GESMV said it empowers people with disabilities and other needs to achieve independence and enhance their lives. Board Chairman

Dwight Johnson said, “This project is a real win-win for the Miami Valley as it is will provide a beacon of hope for our neighbors with disabilities while playing an important role in the revitalization of the South Main Street corridor.” Seven buildings in the northeast corner of Main and Lincoln streets were demolished over the past nine months to make room for the new building. A $2 million Clean Ohio grant provided the funding for the demolition property remediation and preparation. The $14.4 million project will include the renovation of an historic building that will reopen as the Miracle Clubhouse.

“Goodwill Easter Seals was founded in 1934 and has been in the City of Dayton since day one,” said GESMV President and CEO Amy Luttrell. “We are eager to relocate to an area that is more accessible to the people who need us most.” GESMV employs 1,100 people, 50 percent of whom have a disability, and plans to add a minimum of 50 new jobs over the next five years in the new facility. The increased amount of space will provide the capacity to serve 72 percent more people than the agency did in 2012. The agency has had its headquarters at 1511 Kuntz Road since 1979 when it served 423 people per year. In 2012, GESMV served more

than 13,000 people on their path to independence. Sixty percent of the Kuntz Road building is currently used for warehouse and distribution space. This operation will move to the organization’s Woodman Drive facility, adjacent to the Outlet Store, when the program and administrative functions relocate to the new Community Services Campus. Moda4 Design is the architect on the project and Ferguson Construction was awarded the construction contract. The official groundbreaking for the GESMV’s Community Services Center on Main Street is scheduled Aug. 27 at 10 a.m.

Hartzell Air Movement adds new powder coat paint booth PIQUA — Hartzell Air Movement is now offering powder-coated products. The addition of its new paint booth will increase product consistency and quality control, company officials said. This new process is also safer on the environment compared to liquid paints because it does not contain any solvents. Powder coating is universally accepted and specified as the Best Available Control Technology (BACT) to reduce air pollution. Tom Gustafson, chief technology officer comments: “Our powdercoat paint booth has many advantages. The process is inherently safer and cleaner than other paint lines and the paint covers our products better, even in tiny crevasses as well as

around edges.” The new paint booth also improves production efficiency because it has a quicker curing process. Powder coating does not involve additional premixing, stirring, solvent additions, or viscosity adjustments, which means less product variation and better control over quality. Sean Steimle, president of Hartzell Air Movement explains: “This curing and crosslinking process bonds the powder coating to the surface of the substrate and creates a very durable and long-lasting finish. Our fans are installed in very corrosive environments and we are constantly looking into ways to increase the lifespan of our fans for our customers.”

Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC acquires park model business Breckenridge ELKHART, Ind. — Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC, a division of Thor Industries, which also owns Airstream Inc. in Jackson Center, has acquired the assets of Breckenridge, a market leader in the park model business. The acquisition is designed to maximize sales and increase market share in the growing park model and destination trailer segments. The acquisition, effective Aug. 1, will combine Breckenridge’s reputation as a respected, quality-oriented manufacturer with Heartland’s oversight and management expertise. Heartland is a wholly owned subsidiary of Thor Industries Inc. As part of the move, Heartland President Chris Hermon will also oversee the Breckenridge operations. Hermon reported Breckenridge will build product year-round from dedicated manufacturing and service facilities that would cater to the destination trailer segment. Breckenridge was

founded in 1991 and has since been a forerunner in the park model and destination trailer industry and currently offers a full complement of products to meet emerging demands. Hermon added that Heartland, which is enjoying a record-setting year, has a successful track record for bringing product to market and quickly growing market share. “Our top priority is giving retail buyers the products they want and giving dealers the credible front- and back-end support they need. Our marketing and operational experience will be a perfect fit for Breckenridge,” he said. Hermon reported that plans are to roll out new products and programs as part of the Elkhart County RV Open House, set to occur in late September. Thor Industries owns operating subsidiaries that, combined, represent the world’s largest manufacturer of recreation vehicles and a major builder of commercial buses.

Ohio homes sales increase in June The number of homes sold across Ohio rose 15.5 percent in June, as the market posted yearover-year gains in activity for the 24th consecutive month, according to the Ohio Association of Realtors. “Over the past two years the Ohio housing market – month-by-month – has made slow, steady and consistent progress in its effort to recover from the economic challenges wrought by the recession,” said Thomas J. Williams, president of the Ohio Association of Realtors. “Attaining 24 consecutive months of gains in sales activity – our longest stretch in uninterrupted growth in 16 years of tracking

Ohio home sales – is a clear indicator of growing consumer confidence and a renewed appreciation that housing is a solid, long-term investment.” Sales through the first six months of 2013 reached 61,297, a 15.8 percent increase from the 52,932 sales posted during the same period a year ago. The average sales price (January through June) this year is $139,649, a 6.4 percent increase from the $131,199 mark set during the period a year ago. Total dollar volume this year is nearly $8.6 billion, a 23.3 percent increase from the six-month mark of a year ago of $6.9 billion. “Sales activity dur-

ing the second quarter increased 17.4 percent from the level posted last year … our eighth consecutive quarterly gain,” Williams said. “We’re also experiencing widespread sales increases across Ohio, with 17 of the 20 markets we track showing improvement so far in 2013 … a significant indication that the recovery of the housing market is occurring across our diverse markets – from our largest locales to our smaller, rural markets.” Sales in June reached 13,019; a 15.5 percent increase from the 11,267 sales posted during the month in 2012, and reached the best mark since 2007. The average sales price of $161,498

is a 7 percent increase from the $150,992 average price posted in June 2012.

CenturyLink employees, communities donate 130,000 pouds of food to banks MANSFIELD — CenturyLink Inc. employees and the company’s local communities collected more than 130,000 pounds of food and $400,000 in the 2013 CenturyLink Feed the Children Backpack Buddies Food Drive, which took place June 3-7 in hundreds of company locations across the country. To further support its employees’ efforts, the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation contributed a $1 million match to local food bank beneficiaries through the drive. Food banks can purchase food at a lower cost per pound than the

average person could at a store, estimated on average to be 6 pounds of food per dollar given. Based on this calculation, CenturyLink employees, community members and the foundation donated a total of 8.5 million pounds of food to food banks across the country. Across Ohio, more than 135,000 pounds of food (including monetary donations and actual food items) were collected to benefit the Cleveland Foodbank, NNEMAP Food Pantry, Southside Community Ministries, People In Need, Dublin Area Emergency Assistance P ro g ra m , Gra c e Resurrection Association

for Christian Endeavors, West Ohio Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank, Salvation Army, InterChurch Services of Knox County, and Agape Community Food Bank. “We are excited to see the results of this year’s food drive reflecting the outstanding effort of our employees, friends and neighbors to improve the quality of life in our communities,” said Kelly Blay, CenturyLink’s vice president and general manager for Ohio. “The food banks do excellent work in addressing the very real issue of hunger in our communities, and CenturyLink is grateful to help them in this task. We hope that our annual drive

not only provides needed food and donations, but also raises awareness of this issue here in Ohio.” According to 2011 statistics provided by Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, 5.1 percent of all U.S. households (6.1 million households) accessed emergency food from a food pantry one or more times. Thirty-seven million Americans, including 14 million children, are receiving food assistance annually, an increase of 46 percent since 2006. That means one in eight Americans now rely on Feeding America and its nationwide network of local food banks.

Chamber hires Burkard NEW BREMEN — Scott M. Frey, executive director of the Southwest Auglaize county Chamber of Commerce, has announced that Stephanie Burkard, of New Bremen, has joined the staff of the organzation. She replaces Pam Sager, who retired. Burkard, a New Bremen native, graduated from

New Bremen High School in 2005 and from Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa Falls, Ga., in 2009. She was subsequently hired by the college and worked in its admissions and recruiting office before accepting a similar position at Indiana Wesleyan University in Columbus. She had returned to New Bremen a few months

before applying for the job at the chamber office. “My biggest challenge will be to get to know all the members,” Burkard said. “But that will be the biggest benefit of the job, too. I’m excited to be here with the chamber.” Burkard will be in the office Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


United, American and US Airways offer to deliver luggage anywhere: for a fee Brian Sumers AP Exchange

How much would you pay to avoid waiting for your luggage at baggage claim? On three major airlines — United , American and US Airways — you can pay a fee to have a service deliver bags to a hotel, home, business or even a golf course. It’s part of a drive by major carriers to make traveling easier for customers, and to make a little extra profit in the process. If the service is successful, it could be something of a win-win for airlines and customers. “We are more driven by time,” said Melody Andersen, director of customer strategy for US Airways , describing why she believes passengers are ready for bag delivery. “We want things to be as hassle free as possible.” At US Airways, which began the service earlier this month, the cost is $29.95 for one bag, $39.95 for two bags and $49.95 for three to 10 bags. Customers still bring bags to the airport. But after the flight, a service contracted by US Airways takes them from the carousel and promises to deliver

them within four to six hours, although sometimes the service is considerably faster. The destination must be within 40 miles of the airport or an extra fee is required. At American, which will soon merge with US Airways pending government approval, the program is nearly identical — so is bag delivery offered by United. All three airlines offer the service, which is actually handled by a contractor, at each Los Angeles-area airport they serve. Passengers must be on a flight arriving from another U.S. destination or a foreign airport at which U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintains a pre-clearance facility, such as Toronto and Dublin. At least an hour before their flight, customers must sign up for bag delivery on a website. In a recent interview, Maria Walter, a United managing director for product and brand strategy, said the carrier is seeing a lot of repeat customers since launching the program in January. But she said it has been difficult to drive new business, in part because airline passengers are concerned about leaving bags for someone else

to fetch. “There’s been this inherent distrust of, ‘My bag gets lost if I’m not managing it myself this whole time,’ ” Walter said. “So getting people used to the idea of, ‘We’ll get it from baggage claim and get it to your hotel’ is something that is going to be a bit of a paradigm shift for people to get used to.” Robert Mann, a New York-based airline industry analyst and consultant, said only a small slice of customers might be interested in a baggage deliver service. And he said that the customers with the best ability to pay — business travelers with expense accounts — are probably the least likely to check a bag, given the short durations of most trips. “All you are really avoiding is waiting for 25 minutes at a bag belt,” Mann said. “It’s an issue of what is your time worth or what’s the inconvenience of going to the bag belt.” Andersen, of US Airways, said the service could be helpful to families, noting that she used it after a recent vacation. “We just wanted to get home,” she said. “We were tired. We didn’t want to wait and we didn’t want to deal with the four extra

bags. It was a nice benefit for us. The bags were delivered about 20 minutes after we got home.” Bag delivery might be convenient, but whether it is a short-lived fad or a long-lasting service enhancement probably depends more on whether it brings profit to airlines than anything else, Mann said. “Airlines are looking for the sweet spot — something that customers want and are willing to pay for and on which you can make a margin,” Mann said. “There are a lot of people who want a lot of things. They’re generally not willing to pay for them.” Tim Winship, publisher of the blog Frequentflier. com , said the price of the service might be a little too high for most customers. He called it a “splurge.” “It might be worth $29.95 to bypass the baggage claim scrum and have your bag delivered directly to your home, business, or hotel,” he said. “But most travelers will also have to factor in the $25 fee charged by the airlines, too, for each checked bag. So on a round-trip basis, the all-in price is more than $100 — just to get your luggage there and back.”

can always tell when I need to take a break because my voice sounds like I’m almost whispering. It goes away when I leave the workplace. What would cause this? — D.M. ANSWER: People express stress in different ways. Many people experience increased muscle tension in their neck, shoulders and upper back, as it sounds like you might, and this often can lead to neckaches, lower-back discomfort and headaches. Other people get stomach discomfort, nausea or diarrhea when under emotional stress. If these are mild and self-limited, I generally try to avoid treating the symptoms and instead work on stress-reduction techniques. Changes to the voice are less common but well-described as a response to emotional stress. Hoarseness or total loss of voice under emotional stress is possible. It’s not clear what the exact mechanism is. Given that the symptoms get better when you leave the stressful situation, I have very low worry that there is something seriously wrong. Stress-reduction

techniques — such as mindful breathing, meditation or visualization — may be extremely helpful. DEAR DR. ROACH: There is mildew in my bathroom above the bathtub and shower. What causes it; is it dangerous; and what can be done to eliminate the problem? — Anon. ANSWER: Mildew is a mold or fungus that grows on flat surfaces, usually in humid areas. It can trigger asthma attacks in sensitive individuals. One genus, Aspergillus, rarely can cause disease in people with immune problems. Mildew can be prevented with control of the moisture, such as employing a bathroom ventilator fan. Any bleach-based cleanser can get rid of it, but it sometimes takes several cleanings.

Odds & Ends July 10, 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the all-time highest temperature ever recorded on Earth: 134°F, measured in Death Valley, California in July of 1913. The recent extreme heat across the West brought that record back into the spotlight. Even though the 129 degree reading on June 30 of this year fell short of the all-time temperature, it did set a new June record both for Death Valley and for the entire United States.

A Climate Central report “The Heat Is On” took a closer look at the temperature trend for each state in the contiguous United States two different ways: 1) over the last 100 years (right around the time the Death Valley record was set) and 2) from 1970 on. The findings showed that all but three states (Georgia, Arkansas and Alabama) have warmed over the past century, but even those three states show a temperature rise from 1970 on.

NASCAR buzzing after Eldora dirt race INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NASCAR Truck Series stop at Eldora Speedway this week created a lot of buzz that still hasn’t died down. The Ohio race was the first for NASCAR on a dirt track since Sept. 30 1970. Some drivers in Indianapolis for this weekend’s Brickyard race were talking Friday about a possible Sprint Cup series race at the track — someday. Clint Boyer, who is second in the Spring Cup Series standings, was part of the broadcast of Wednesday’s event on Speed TV. A part of him wanted to be in Eldora racing. “Basically, I was stuck in a cage in there in the Hollywood Hotel with my world racing out there and it was really hard to sit there and watch,” he said. “I thought the racing was good. Everybody was thinking, ‘Man, why is the track so dryslick?’ It led to good racing.” Jeff Gordon watched every minute of it, too. Dale Earnhardt Jr. tried. He was on his way to New York and didn’t get to see the finish. “I had it recorded on my TV and it recorded an hour and a half of it, so I didn’t get to see the last segment,” he said. “It was some kind of communication error. But, that was disappointing to say the least because I had pretty much cut off all contact with anyone who might ruin the outcome for me.” He never got to see Austin Dillon capture the win. But a sold-out crowd at the halfmile dirt track owned by Tony Stewart saw everything. So did 1.4 million viewers on Speed TV. But the portion of the race Earnhardt was able to enjoy was enough to make an impact. “It was entertaining and exciting and something that was something that I hope to see more of,” Earnhardt said. “Just from a viewer’s standpoint.” The race was a hit for everyone. “Everywhere I’ve gone this week I’ve had people that are huge NASCAR fans and people that aren’t big NASCAR fans at all that watched it,” Gordon said. “And they were blown away. They did not expect it to go the way that it did.” And with the excitement that surrounded the race brings up a question: Is there a future at

Eldora with NASCAR? NASCAR officials say they’re hopeful. Stewart was on hand for the race and wouldn’t mind seeing a future at his track with the series. “The logical thing is, NASCAR will go back and evaluate how the two days went,” Stewart said after the race. “We, as a company, will

do the same thing.” For his part, Earnhardt would like to see an exhibition race, not a full blown Sprint Cup event. Gordon disagreed. “You know what I would love to see, a Cup race at Eldora,” Gordon said. “I don’t think you will ever see a Cup race there. At least not while I’m driving, but I would certainly vote for

it. I think it would be very cool to do.” Even if Gordon was still racing, he may not want to drive there, he jokingly said. “I think I would rather have Kyle Larson drive my car because I thought he was awesome,” he said. “He was unbelievable.”

Sidney horses in winner’s circle The one night of harness racing at the Shelby County Fair had a definite local flavor to it as two horses, owned by Patrick H. Groves of Sidney, won races Friday night, one even flirting with the longstanding track record in the pace. Casimir Freedom won the final heat of the night, the Leonard Baker Memorial, in 1:59-1. The track record is 1:58. And Harvard’s Z Tam in the Joe Strayer Memorial Pace free for all won in 2:01-1. The horse is also owned by Groves, and both are trained by Harry Groves. Meawhile, in the third heat, the two-year-old colt trot, My Big Felix, owned and trained by Ronald L. Wulber of Versailles, won in 2:09-2.

Ben Hogenkamp named Division III All-American Scholar M I N ST E R — Wittenberg golf standout and Minster High School graduate Ben Hogenkamp has earned recognition from Cleveland Golf/Srixon and the Golf Coaches Association of America as an NCAA Division III All-American Scholar, it was announced Thursday by Wittenberg. Hogenkamp is one of just 21 NCAA D-II student-athletes to earn All-America Scholar honors in 2013. To be nominated, a player must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in at least 70 percent of his team’s competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, maintain a stroke average of 79.0 or lower and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.2. Hogenkamp has earned a pair of firstteam All-North Coast Athletic Conference designations in his three collegiate seasons. In 2011, he finished in a tie for first place in the NCAC Championship Series before losing a playoff with teammate Craig Osterbrock for medalist honors and the Bob Nye Award. Two years later, he was a mainstay in the starting lineup, averaging 75.2 strokes while playing all 28 rounds in the 201213 season and winning individual crowns



at the Transylvania Fall Invitational and Wooster’s Nye Intercollegiate. Hogenkamp also continues to do an outstanding job in the classroom as he works toward his degree in business and a minor in economics. Wittenberg won its fourth straight NCAC Championship and earned its fourth straight trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2013. The Tigers finished 13th in the national championship to put the finishing touches on a 2012-13 campaign that included first place finishes in six of 12 tournaments. Hogenkamp begins his senior season on Sept 8-9 when Wittenberg competes in the Transylvania Fall Invitational at the University of Kentucky Wildcat Course in Lexington, Ky.

She is one of two girls who will be members of Fort Loramie’s girls golf team this coming season to have won championships last weekend. Ashley Ordean, who will be a senior on the Fort Loramie team, won the Shelby County Ladies Open championship, also with an 80.

Indians looking to make a deal CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians general manager Chris Antonetti wants to make a trade before the July 31 deadline, but he’s having a tough time finding a partner. With his team within three games of firstplace Detroit in the AL Central, Antonetti has been exploring ways to improve the Indians, who began a stretch of 14 home games in 17 days on Friday. Antonetti said the added wild-card team has changed the land-

Fort Loramie’s Knouff wins Arrowhead title MINSTER — Emily Knouff, who will be a freshman this fall at Fort Loramie High School, won the Arrowhead women’s club championship last weekend at Arrowhead Park Golf Course in Minster Knouff shot an 80 to win the title by 12 strokes.


scape and estimates that 24 of 30 teams are looking to add players as August approaches. Antonetti said Cleveland’s situation is complicated because two teams who would be considered “sellers” — Minnesota and Chicago — are in the Indians’ division. Antonetti isn’t optimistic or pessimistic about getting a deal done, but said the Indians are “not going to make a trade just to say we made a trade.”

The 5th Annual Money Concepts Open Tennis Tournament was held the weekend of June 28-30th. Overcast skies made the temperature more desirable for play, but the eventual rains on Sunday postponed the final matches until later. The tournament attracted people from Celina to St. Paris and Dayton, Trotwood, Huber Heights and Troy to the south. Tournament directors David O’Leary, Jacob and Laura Eilerman, and Greg and Priscilla Wilt were pleased with the event and felt all players enjoyed the competition and play. “The play was friendly and an atmosphere of sportsmanship was evident,” O’Leary said. This year’s tournament had several first-time players who enjoyed the event. Joe Verstraten, of Troy commented that it was “a great event promoting a fun, competi-

tive, and extremely enjoyable atmosphere.” Jacob and Laura Eilerman felt it was “a terrific opportunity for all levels of players to come out and play some tennis.” Greg and Martha Koenig found the tournament to be “a great way to meet some new people, play great tennis and make friends to play some recreational tennis with in the future.” Sidney resident Scott Greve enjoyed “the opportunity to have a tournament in our area that the whole family could enjoy.” In mixed doubles, Kandis Sargeant and Christian Henderson, of Sidney and St. Paris, repeated as champions over the runner up team of Pat Robinson and Kim Thorpe of Troy and Piqua. In the consolation bracket, Jacob and Laura Eilerman of Anna won over Aaron and Leslie Boyer of Sidney, 6-0, 6-1. The men’s doubles final

saw a three-set match with Kosal Tith and Jim Kinsinger of Troy and Huber Heights as champions over first-time participants, Isaac Anderson and Joe Verstraten of Troy, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3. The consolation winner was the team of John Boedigheimer and Greg Koenig of Sidney and Botkins, respectively. They defeated the team of Kim Thorpe and Chris Hufford, 6-2, 6-4. Men’s singles finals saw a familiar winner, Tim Ungericht of DeGraff, winning over Jacob Eilerman of Anna, 6-4, 6-1. The consolation finals brought together the father-son match up of Brian and Stephen Hendershot. The match went three hardfought sets with father, Brian winning over Stephen, 6-4, 5-7, 7-5. In addition to the tournament participants, many individuals, businesses, and organizations were instrumental in

the success of the tournament, according to organizers. Duane Gaier and the City of Sidney Parks and Recreation Department and Tony and Tambra Brown and the Sidney City Schools made sure the facilities were in good condition. Freytag and Associates provided the draw boards and Keith Kleman procured necessary equipment. Tournament directors, O’Leary, the Eilerman’s and the Wilt’s agreed, “You can’t run a successful tournament without a lot of great support. We appreciate the efforts of our tournament sponsor, Money Concepts Financial Planning Centre of Sidney. We also can’t say enough about the players who participated. They were a tremendous group of people, who came to compete and have a good time. We look forward to next year and the continued growth of the tournament.”

Youth triathlon held in Minster MINSTER — The third annual 1Heart2Souls youth triathlon was held recently in Minster at the Minster pool and through the streets of the town. The event consisted of swimming, biking and running, and brought athletes from many surrounding areas, ranging in age from just 4 to 12 years old. They each competed in different distances according to their age. There were awards given to the top three boys and girls in each age group as well as the Heart and Soul award given to an athlete who exemplifies in his or her character or athletic performance a humbleness about his or her abilities while giving 110 percent in their effort. This year’s award went to Brandan Olney of Columbus. “The event was a huge success and could not have been possible without the generous sponsorship of local businesses and individuals,” said Mary Slonkosky. “But just as important were the 50 volunteers that were on hand at the course to help ensure the safety of the kids and to help make the

Weeden hopes for strong 2nd season BEREA, Ohio (AP) — His hair is still orangey, just a shade off the color of the Browns’ helmets. He’s still got that cannon right arm, the one that made the New York Yankees draft him and enabled him to throw 75 touchdown passes at Oklahoma State. Outwardly, Brandon Weeden looks the same. But he’s no longer a wideeyed NFL rookie. And as Weeden enters his second pro season, he’s got experience, an offense catered to his strengths and a brand new outlook. Cleveland’s quarterback says he’s a changed man. “I feel like a completely different player,” he said. The Browns have their fingers crossed that Weeden, who was both efficient and erratic last season, can develop into the long-term starter he was projected to be when the club selected the 29-year-old with the No. 22 overall pick in 2012. Weeden showed signs of being that guy last year, just not enough of them. He passed for 3,385 yards — a franchise rookie record — with 14 touch-

downs, but there were too many moments when the game seemed to be moving much faster than Weeden, who may have been unfairly judged as part of an elite rookie QB class headlined by Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill. Weeden was held to a standard he wasn’t quite ready to reach. However, Weeden believes he grew from last year and is eager to show the Browns — and prove to some skeptical Cleveland fans — that he’s ready to take a major step forward. “It’s knowing what to expect,” Weeden said earlier this week. “I didn’t know anyone in the locker room (last year). I didn’t know the routine. There are just so many unknowns. Now I’ve been in it for a year, and I know how the weekly routine goes, and I’ve got myself into a routine.” Weeden seems to have the backing of Cleveland’s new coaching staff and an overhauled front office that didn’t draft him. Although first-year coach Rob Chudzinski has not yet

named Weeden his starter, the rifle-armed QB opened training camp with a leg up on Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer, two experienced veterans who give the Browns quality depth in case Weeden falls on his face. So far, he’s standing tall. It’s his starting job to lose. The Browns have been impressed with the way Weeden immersed himself into learning Chudzinski’s complex offense, which should better allow him to spread the ball around the field to his receivers. There was a perception last season that Weeden, who played four seasons of minor league baseball before going to college, wasn’t a great student or hard worker. But that hasn’t been an issue whatsoever as Weeden has shown a strong desire to improve and to lead. The Browns have spent months evaluating Weeden, and to this point, he’s passed every test. “He has worked real hard and he’s done everything that they’ve asked him to do,” CEO Joe Banner said. “He’s got obviously a lot

more work, but he’s gotten in here and he’s gotten a chance to progress on the mental aspect of the position, so I think everyone is encouraged on how hard he’s working and how bad it seems he wants to do well.” Weeden’s first day of training camp didn’t start so well. He looked tentative on some early passes, forcing the ball into tight spots — one of his issues last year. But he settled in, and before long, Weeden was threading completions all over the field, hooking up on long passes to wide receivers Greg Little, Davone Bess and Josh Gordon. “I’m going to go out there with confidence,” he said. “I’m not going to be timid. I’m going to go out there and play hard and leave it on the line and take the chances I did and always have. I’m going to throw the ball and throw the ball in tight windows and trust my arm. It’s hard to play this position when you are aiming throws and secondguessing throws. You have to play aggressive and be aggressive at all times.”

Bruce, Paul homer in Reds’ 5-2 win over LA Thursday LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mat Latos was able to get deep into the game because of his pitch count. He threw only 74 through the first six, so he had plenty left to get through a seventh-inning jam and came within one out of getting through the eighth. Latos ended up with 106 pitches in a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night, ending the NL West leaders’ six-game winning streak. Jay Bruce and Xavier Paul provided the power with home runs against Zack Greinke. “Latos was really dealing tonight,” manager Dusty Baker said. “He was throwing downhill. His fastball looked like it was going to go low, and then it stayed up in the zone. He also had a really good breaking ball. That’s a heck of a team over there, and he almost got out of the eighth without anything.” Latos (10-3) allowed two runs — one earned — and eight hits with four strikeouts en route to his first victory at Dodger Stadium, after going 0-5 with a 3.95 ERA in his five previous starts at Chavez Ravine. Latos is 24-7 in 54 starts since Cincinnati acquired him from San Diego in December 2011. The last time he faced the Dodgers back on Sept. 22 at Cincinnati, he pitched eight innings in a 6-0 victory that clinched the Reds’ second NL Central title in a three-year span. Aroldis Chapman got three outs for his 24th save in 27 chances. Coming off a 6-0 trip that extended their road winning streak to 10 games — the longest by the franchise since 1955 — the Dodgers lost for only the sixth time in their last 29 games overall. Their division lead over Arizona shrunk to a half-game with the Diamondbacks’ 3-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs. “We’re in a good spot, but we have to keep going,” catcher A.J. Ellis said. “We’ve worked hard to get to this point, and we don’t want to let it go to waste. We’ve got some good teams behind us that are going to be tough down the stretch, so we’ve got to stay humble and understand that this is part of the grind.” Yasiel Puig, who has been playing like anything but a rookie since the Dodgers promoted him from Triple-A on June 3, single-handedly manufactured their unearned run in the fourth after leading off with a single and making his customary exaggerated turn at first. Center fielder Shin-Soo Choo tried to get cute and made an ill-advised throw past first baseman Joey Votto — hoping to surprise Puig — and the ball hopped into the stands. Puig was awarded two bases and scored on the first of Adrian Gonzalez’s two RBI groundouts. The error was Choo’s third of the season. “That wasn’t a bad play,” Baker said. “I mean, if that throw is on the money, he has him. But it just looked bad because it had a tail on it and it was cutting away, and it skipped by Joey. Those things don’t happen unless a guy is hustling, and there aren’t many guys that hustle like that on a sure single. So you’ve got to give Puig credit for that. “I remember when I first came into the league, Hank Aaron told me not to mess around — especially when Pete Rose or Roberto Clemente hits the ball because they would put pressure on you to throw the ball,” Baker added. “And the only way to do that is to run. So I’ve

got to give it to him. Most guys don’t run like that, and most guys can’t. The ones that can don’t usually hustle like that. But this guy comes to play.” Choo made another egregious mistake on the base paths during the Reds’ eighth. Votto lined a hit-and-run single to center field, but Choo got fooled on a perfect decoy by shortstop Hanley Ramirez at second base — so good that Choo started back to first and was tagged out on the relay from Andre Ethier to Ramirez. “That’s an old schoolyard play that works like once a year somewhere, and it worked for them tonight,” Baker said. “He didn’t pick up the third base coach. You’ve got to use your ears as well as your eyes, and you’ve got to take a peek. Sometimes in your quest to get to second base, you don’t take a peek.” Puig, who went 53 atbats without an extra-base hit before his double and home run in the Dodgers’ 8-3 win against the Blue Jays on Wednesday, had a pair of singles and raised his average to .378. “He’s got long arms and a big bat,” Latos said. “Both singles he had off me I jammed him, but he’s big and strong. He put one into the shallow part of the outfield, then I beat him on a slider and he was able to keep the barrel out and reach over and hook it.” Greinke (8-3) gave up four runs and six hits over seven innings in his second attempt at his 100th major league victory. The loss was the righthander’s first in his last six decisions overall, and first in seven career starts against the Reds (4-1). A couple of former Dodgers drove in Cincinnati’s first two runs. Paul, the second batter Greinke faced, drove a 2-0 pitch into the rightfield pavilion in his 700th career plate appearance. Cesar Izturis added an RBI single in the second inning. “Obviously, Zack’s a very good pitcher and he’s got a lot of weapons, so you’ve got to make sure you get something you can handle and take advantage of mistakes,” Bruce said. Bruce was 2 for 21 lifetime against Greinke before driving a 2-2 pitch to left-center for his 21st homer. It came after Greinke turned Votto’s comebacker into a 1-6-3 double play and then hit Brandon Phillips on the leg with an 0-2 delivery. Choo drove in Cincinnati’s final run with a ninth-inning single against Carlos Marmol in the right-hander’s first home appearance with the Dodgers. NOTES: Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, the only member of the Dodgers’ family who gets more standing ovations than Puig, received another one from the sellout crowd on his bobblehead night after a video montage was played on both main scoreboards midway through the fifth inning. Scully is in his 64th season with the club. … Injured Cincinnati RHP Jonathan Broxton, who spent his first seven big league seasons with the Dodgers and had a careerhigh 36 saves for them in 2009, is scheduled to face hitters during batting practice on Saturday. He hasn’t pitched for the Reds since June 13 because of an elbow strain. … Latos has allowed only two home runs against the Dodgers in 72 career innings spanning 10 starts. Both of them were by James Loney. … Three of Greinke’s four strikeouts came against Latos.

Edison Police Academy grads receive 100% passing rate


on the go wherever you go!


PIQUA — Edison Community College’s Peace Officer Academy recognized 14 new graduates in May following their completion of the training program. Graduates of the program met for six days each week since January, totaling more than 620 hours of training. The curriculum of the program is certified by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission (OPOTC) and covers all aspects of law enforcement training including administration, firearms, subject control and investigation. “The entire police academy process is a commitment,” said Joe Mahan, commander of Edison’s Basic Peace Officer Academy. “Students spend a total of 33 hours per week for 19 weeks in class.” Upon completion of the program, students were required to take a

state-mandated exam, which includes a written and physical test. Those tested from the most recent class proved successful in receiving 100 percent pass rate, a first in Edison’s 25-academy history. A total of 74 percent of Edison Police Academy graduates who pass the state test are sworn in as police officers to 49 different agencies throughout Ohio. “Success is the result of great instructors, and students who are willing to learn,” said Mahan. “This is the first time that an entire class has passed the state exam on the first attempt. It speaks volumes for the students’ willingness to apply themselves so that they could succeed.” Edison first offered the Basic Peace Officer Academy in 2003 and the class that graduated this spring was from the 25th academy. Throughout its

10-year history, the program has graduated 338 students. Edison began the basic peace officer academy at the request of local law enforcement agencies and continues to feature instructors who are current and retired law enforcement officers. Twenty-seven instructors worked with the current graduates. Applications are available three months prior to the start of each academy. They must be completed and turned in no later than four weeks prior to the start of the academy you wish to attend. Interested students must be 21 years of age and eligible to own a weapon. A morning and evening academy will be offered. For more information or to apply for an upcoming academy, contact Kristi Wildermuth at or (937) 778-7865.

For Sunday, July 28, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a lovely, playful day. Join others in fun activities. Romance can flourish, including love at first sight. (It's a poor day to spend money, except on food and fun.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a great day to entertain at home. Invite the gang over for good food and drinks. However, don't buy goodies for the home and family, because this is a poor day to shop. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Writers, actors and teachers can benefit today because they are in touch with their muse. Make the most of this talent through your communication with others. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Although you might boost your income or see ways to earn more money, this is actually a poor day for important financial decisions. It's also a poor day to shop. (But it's a fun day!) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel good about yourself today. A dawning awareness of your good fortune (especially compared to millions on this planet) makes you appreciate who you are. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a wonderful day to appreciate who you are and what you have. Hidden resources or behind-the-scenes assistance will enrich your life and make you feel fortunate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A popular day for Libras! Get out and mingle. Enjoy schmoozing, especially in groups. New romance and certainly new friendships are possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) It's easy to make a great impression on others today, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Someone might ask for your creative input about something. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Travel for pleasure will delight you today. Enjoy meeting people from different cultures and other countries. In fact, romance with someone "different" could begin. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Gifts, goodies and favors from others will come your way today, so keep your pockets open. However, postpone important decisions about inheritances and shared property. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with others, especially partners and close friends, will be warm and friendly today. In fact, you will enjoy dealing with members of the general public and practically everyone you meet. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Something will happen today that might improve your health. Or you might meet someone who can advise you on how to improve your health. Keep your eyes peeled. YOU BORN TODAY You're a romantic, dynamic individual. You have excellent social skills and a sense of how to deal with others. You appreciate the arts and will support them or be involved in some way. You're resourceful and organized because you know these tools help you get what you want. This year an important change will take place, perhaps something as significant as what happened around 2004. Birthdate of: Beatrix Potter, author; Terry Fox, inspirational hero; Gerard Manley Hopkins, poet.

Grand Lake Vein Care Center offers new technology for aging veins ST. MARYS — Half of all Americans over 50 (and two-thirds of women over 60) suffer from the pain and swelling of those big ropey leg veins. The condition is caused by failing valves in the primary veins that allow blood to pool up in the legs, and symptoms can range from aching and fatigue to skin ulcers and blood clots. Women who have had more than two pregnancies are at particular risk, and heredity, weight and careers that require a vertical position throughout the day, like nursing or teaching are risk factors as well. Back in the old days – the 20th Century – the only surgical option for patients with severe varicose veins was a gruesome and painful procedure called vein stripping that

left the patient scarred and laid up for weeks. Today, however, we have the next-generation medical technology to treat the problem – minimally invasive catheters that close the diseased main vein from within. The physician pulls the device through the vein, delivering bursts of energy through the catheter’s heating element to heat and contract the vein walls. With the primary vessel sealed, the body automatically re-establishes healthier circulation and the varicosity symptoms quickly dissipate. Catheter devices fall into two categories – radiofrequency (RF) devices and lasers. Both are fast and effective, but the RF device is used by Grand Lake Vein Care Center because it is eas-

The latest RF device, the VNUS® ClosureFAST™ catheter, operates at far cooler temperatures, sealing the vein in three to five minutes with virtually no discomfort to the patient. The procedure is done by using a local anesthetic, and the patient is in and out in less than an hour, usually resuming normal activity the next day. The leg pain and heaviness disappear almost immediately, and visible changes are evident in a few weeks.

I do not hate my stepmother DR. WALLACE: I’m 15 and have lived with my father and stepmother for two years. My mother died four years ago, and for two years it was just my dad and I. Those were good days. When my mother

was alive, my life was great. Now my days are miserable. My stepmother and I don’t see things the same way. We argue a lot about everything from doing my chores to the music I listen to.

The argument always ends when she shouts, “Shut up, young lady, and go to your room, and stay there until your father gets home.” It doesn’t matter who is in our house. She always screams at me,

making me feel very embarrassed. Yesterday, my best friend and I came over to our house after school. I told her I had made cookies the night before, and we could down a few with milk.
