FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In a split decision, U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was acquitted Tuesday of aiding the enemy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the most serious charge he faced â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but was convicted of espionage, theft and nearly every other count for giving secrets to WikiLeaks, a verdict that could see him spend the rest of his life in prison. The judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, deliberated over three days before delivering a decision that denied the government a precedent that freedom of press advocates had warned could have broad implications for leak cases and investigative journalism about national security issues. From the courtroom to world capitals, people struggled to absorb the meaning of a ruling that cleared the soldier of a charge of aiding the

enemy, which would have carried a potential life sentence, but convicted him of 20 of 22 counts that, together, could also mean life behind bars. Manning faces up to 136 years in prison if given maximum penalties in a sentencing hearing that starts Wednesday. It is expected to last most of August. The 25-year-old soldier stood quietly at attention in his dress uniform, flanked by his attorneys, as the verdict was delivered. He appeared not to react, though his attorney, David Coombs, smiled faintly when he heard â&#x20AC;&#x153;not guiltyâ&#x20AC;? on the aiding the enemy charge. When the judge was done, Coombs put his hand on Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back and whispered something to him, bringing a slight smile to the soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We won the battle, now we need to go win the war,â&#x20AC;? Coombs said later, outside the courtroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today is a good day, but Bradley is by no

means out of the fire.â&#x20AC;? Transparency advocates and legal experts had mixed opinions on the implications for the future of leak cases and investigative journalism in the Internet age. The advocacy group Without Reporters Borders said the verdict was a chilling warning to whistleblowers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;against whom the Obama administration has been waging an unprecedented offensive,â&#x20AC;? and threatens the future of investigative journalism because intimidated sources might fall quiet. However, another advocate of less government secrecy, Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists, questioned whether the implications will be so dire, given the extraordinary nature of the Manning case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a massive hemorrhage of government records, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not See MANNING | 5

Two outbreaks of Legionnairesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; disease have killed five people in recent weeks at a central Ohio retirement center and a man who worked at an auto parts plant in the western part of the state.

Dr. James ‘JT’ ‘Jim’ ‘Doc’ Stockstill Dr. James “JT ” “Jim” “Doc” Stockstill, 82, of 14250 Kirkwood Road, passed away at 10:05 p.m. Sunday, July 28, 2013, at Fair Haven Shelby County Home. He was born on May 22, 1931, in Sidney, the son of the late Joslin and Louise (Oartel) Stockstill. In 1951, he married Patricia Kies, who preceded him in death in 2005 in Florida. Jim is survived by his wife, Louanne (Blake) Mentges Stockstill; two children, Ann Heiland and husband, John, and John Stockstill II and wife, Elaine, both of Sidney; three grandchildren, Corinne Caranna and husband, Mike, of Akron, Erica Majernik and husband, Dave, of Cleveland, and John Stockstill III and wife, Bonnie; five greatgrandchildren, Andrew and Alexis Caranna, of Akron, and Tyler, Ryan and Allyson Majernik, of Cleveland; and one sister, Louise Yoho, and husband, Delbert, of Sidney. He was preceded in death by his brother, John Stockstill, who gave his life in the service of his country in 1945. Dr. Stockstill was a proud graduate of the Ohio State University. There, he received a Bachelor of Science and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1956. He was an ardent Buckeye fan of both basketball and football. After graduation, he started a practice in Sidney, where his grandfather practiced for 30 years (present location of the Hampton Inn). Another veterinarian and cousin to Jim, Raymond Stockstill, practiced in Cleveland, making the veterinarian business a family tradition. While in practice, he became a member of several local service clubs and lodges. He recalled the Sidney Jaycees Baseball

excursions as the most memorable. His real dedication was to his practice, becoming a member of the Ohio National A s s o c i at i o n s , E a s t e r n and We s t e r n States Veterinary Associations. He enjoyed speaking to local, equine, bovine and farm groups, as well as 4-H and elementary schools. He was a 50-year member of the Sidney First United Methodist Church and in 2006, joined the Sidney United Church of Christ. During his practice, he treated small and large animals both, including some exotics. In working with many strange animals and interesting owners, Jim could have filled a book with stories of their adventures. He would often relate some of these stories, which still made him laugh. His passion in life was veterinary medicine. After 40 years of practice, Dr. Stockstill and his wife, Patricia, moved to Naples, Fla. to find the sun. After she died in 2005, he moved back to Sidney, and in 2006, married Louanne Mentges, a former 1949 Sidney High School classmate. In following with Dr. Stockstill’s wishes, his body will be cremated. A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family. His final resting place will be at Graceland Cemetery. Arrangements are in the care of the Cromes Funeral Home & Crematory, 302 S. Main Ave. Memorials may be made to Ohio State Veterinary Association Services, 1472 Manning Pkwy., Powell, OH 43065.

Veterans of WWII raid holding 70th reunion in Dayton DAYTON (AP) — Veterans of a daring and costly World War II low-flying raid on Axis oil fields are gathering in Ohio this week for a 70th anniversary reunion. Those participating in the Ploesti Raid reunion at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton will arrive Tuesday, gathering for dinner followed by private events Wednesday. On the raid anniversary Thursday, there will be a public memorial service at the museum and a chance to meet veterans. One of the reunion coordinators is Air Force history buff Mark Copeland of Lakeville, Minn. He says organizers expect nearly a dozen raid veterans to take part. He says organizers are pleased with the response, given the men’s ages and travel challenges. Among others expected is a sister of Maj. John Jerstad, a pilot who was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously. With his plane heavily damaged and still taking fire from anti-aircraft guns, Jerstad’s plane released its bombs before crashing into the target area. His was among five Medals of Honor awarded for the raid. Dubbed “Operation Tidal Wave,” the Aug. 1, 1943, raid tar-

geted heavily defended oil fields in occupied Romania. The B-24 bombers that flew from bases in North Africa attacked in daylight, some flying only yards above ground while in fierce air-ground fighting with German forces. Nearly a third of the 177 planes were shot down, and about a third of 1,758 participants were killed, captured or missing in action. The 44th Bomb Group received the Distinguished Unit Citation. Copeland said the last reunion was in Salt Lake City 10 years ago and drew 85 veterans. He says fewer than 70 are alive today, so it’s likely this will be the last reunion of what’s known as the most highly decorated U.S. military mission. “We’re just very passionate about honoring this raid,” said Copeland about the reunion event organizers. He said participants are expected from as far away as California. Among private events for the participants will be a museum tour and special viewing of a fully restored B-24. ___ Online: U.S. Air Force military mission history: information/heritage/spotlight. asp?id=123224768

Senator hopes bill will spur Medicaid action Ann Sanner Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio state senator renewed her push for expanding the Medicaid program on Tuesday, contending projections from a new analysis show that more people could be covered while saving the state money. State lawmakers have been trying to find common ground on Medicaid since Republican Gov.

John Kasich proposed an extension of the program in February. GOP leaders pulled it from the state budget, and the issue has yet to gain traction in the General Assembly. State Sen. Capri Cafaro told reporters in Columbus that she believes it’s time for legislative leaders to quit “dancing around” the idea and act. “Hundreds of thousands of Ohioans’ lives hang in the balance simply because they are a part of

a population that is caught straight in the crosshairs of political marksmanship,” Cafaro, a Hubbard Democrat, said. She has introduced a proposal to expand Medicaid coverage and cap the cost growth of the program at a roughly 3.5 percent rate, compared to the current rate of 7.2 percent a year. Without expansion, total Medicaid spending in Ohio is projected to reach $43.4 billion in 2025

at its current rate. With extended coverage and the Medicaid growth rate maintained at 3.5 percent per year, spending could be $37.2 billion in 2025, according to an analysis by the Health Policy Institute of Ohio and Ohio State University’s John Glenn School of Public Affairs. Medicaid expansion is one of the key components of Democratic President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Ohio man sued over death of woman who answered ad Andrews Welsh-Huggins Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio exdoctor was responsible for the death of an expectant mother who died after answering a Craigslist ad for housecleaning services, according to a $40 million lawsuit that also targets the physician’s employer and Craigslist. The lawsuit filed Monday in county court north of Columbus blames former physician Ali Salim for the death of Deanna Ballman last summer. Craigslist should have known Salim was dangerous because other women who responded to ads Salim placed had experienced problems that were

reported to police and Craigslist, according to the lawsuit. “Craigslist was on notice and knew or should have known defendant Ali Salim was inherently dangerous to its Internet users,” said the lawsuit, filed on behalf of the woman’s family. It also says Salim’s employer, Knox Community Hospital, was negligent for allowing him to take syringes that the lawsuit says were used to inject Ballman with heroin. Messages seeking comment were left Tuesday for the hospital and Craigslist. The lawsuit also alleges someone helped Salim inject the 23-year-old woman with heroin, something investigators say they’ve tried unsuccess-

fully to prove. Nine months pregnant, Ballman was alive on July 31, 2012, when Salim placed her in the back of her car and drove her to a rural road in Delaware County where she was found dead the next day, according to the lawsuit. Investigators, including the Delaware County coroner, have previously declined to say when Ballman died. Salim has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, raping and killing Ballman by injecting her with heroin, as well as killing her unborn daughter, to be named Mabel Lilly. His criminal trial, originally scheduled for September, has been moved to Oct. 29.

spokeswoman Tessie Pollock said. The outbreak, she said, is nearing a point at which those who were exposed are no longer likely to show symptoms. About 200 people live at the center. The retirement community has taken steps to clean the water by hyper-chlorinating and superheating it. The center also is installing filters on shower heads and advising residents not to drink the water until it

completes testing. Meanwhile, investigators were waiting on tests to determine what caused one person to die from Legionnaires’ disease and sickened another at an auto parts supplier in the western Ohio town of St. Marys. There is no evidence that the AAP plant is linked to the outbreak, but its operators already have taken steps to clean the water and sanitize potential bacteria sources.

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

Nation/World Today in History By The Associated Press

Today is Wednesday, July 31, the 212th day of 2013. There are 153 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 31, 1777, the Marquis de Lafayette, a 19-year-old French nobleman, was made a major-general in the American Continental Army. On this date: In 1556, St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, died in Rome. In 1875, the 17th president of the United States, Andrew Johnson, died in Carter County, Tenn., at age 66. In 1919, Germany’s Weimar (VY’-mahr) Constitution was adopted by the republic’s National Assembly. In 1930, the radio character “The Shadow” made his debut as narrator of the “Detective Story Hour” on CBS Radio. In 1933, the radio series “Jack Armstrong, the AllAmerican Boy,” made its debut on CBS radio station WBBM in Chicago. In 1942, Oxfam International had its beginnings as the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief was founded in England. In 1953, Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, known as “Mr. Republican,” died in New York at age 63. In 1971, Apollo 15 crew members David Scott and James Irwin became the first astronauts to use a lunar rover on the surface of the moon. In 1972, Democratic vice-presidential candidate Thomas Eagleton withdrew from the ticket with George McGovern following disclosures that Eagleton had once undergone psychiatric treatment. In 1973, Delta Air Lines Flight 723, a DC-9, crashed while trying to land at Boston’s Logan International Airport, killing all 89 people on board. In 1989, a pro-Iranian group in Lebanon released a grisly videotape showing the body of American hostage William R. Higgins, a Marine lieutenant-colonel, dangling from a rope. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush and Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev signed the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in Moscow. Ten years ago: The Vatican launched a global campaign against gay marriages, warning Catholic politicians that support of same-sex unions was “gravely immoral” and urging non-Catholics to join the offensive. Two of ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s daughters and their nine children were granted refuge in Jordan. Five years ago: Three teenagers were shot to death when a gunman opened fire on a group of young people who’d gathered to go swimming in the Menominee River near Niagara, Wis. (The gunman, Scott J. Johnson, was later sentenced to life in prison without parole.) Scientists reported the Phoenix spacecraft had confirmed the presence of frozen water in Martian soil.

2-headed turtle gets Facebook page SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A two-headed turtle born last month at the San Antonio Zoo has become so popular that she has her own Facebook page. Zoo officials say the Texas cooter, named Thelma and Louise for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie, has been doing well. Spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike (van SKYKE’) says the turtle eats and swims, and added that the two heads - named Louise Left and Thelma Right - get along. The Facebook page on Sunday showed photos of the quirky reptile and imaginary conversations between the two heads. The turtle hatched June 18. The animal is on display at the zoo’s Friedrich Aquarium.

Israeli-Palestinian aim: A peace deal in 9 months Matthew Lee AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pressing ahead in a new U.S.backed push for Middle East peace, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators agreed Tuesday to meet again within two weeks to start substantive talks in hopes of reaching a long-elusive settlement within nine months. Speaking after the two sides wrapped up an initial two days of talks at the State Department and visited President Barack Obama at the White House, Secretary of State John Kerry said Israel and the Palestinians were committed to sustained and serious negotiations on the “core issues” that divide them. The next round will take place in either Israel or the Palestinian territories before mid-August, he said. Kerry said he was aware of the deep doubts surrounding the new peace effort and acknowledged that the road would be difficult. Yet, he said, “While I understand the skepticism, I don’t share it. And I don’t think we have time for it.” All issues, including contentious disputes over the status of the territories and Jerusalem, are “on the table for negotiation, and they are on the table with one simple goal: a view to ending the conflict,” Kerry said.

Secretary of State John Kerry stands with Israel’s Justice Minister and chief negotiator Tzipi Livni, and Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, after the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at the State Department in Washington, Tuesday.

The U.S. had already said the negotiations would continue for at least nine months — roughly until the end of April 2014 — but that had not been set as a timeframe for reaching a deal. Kerry and both sides agreed that neither would walk away from the talks or take actions that could disrupt them for that period, two senior U.S. officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss diplomatic talks. However, the officials also said they expect that the Israelis, over U.S. objections, will continue constructing housing for Jewish set-

tlers on land claimed by the Palestinians over the course of the negotiations, an indication the Palestinians are serious about dropping their longstanding demand for a settlement freeze before returning to talks. The officials said the U.S. believes the Palestinians also will not attempt to win further international recognition as a state until a peace deal is completed, an effort that one official likened to a potential “train wreck.” Kerry said that Israel, which agreed on Sunday to release more than 100 Palestinian prisoners as a goodwill gesture, would also take unspecified steps in the coming days to

Obama challenges GOP to accept corporate tax deal Nedra Pickler Associated Press

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday offered congressional Republicans a new corporate tax cut and jobs spending package he said might “help break through some of the political logjam in Washington,” only to have GOP lawmakers immediately throw cold water on the idea. The announcement and quick rejection underscored how elusive common ground is between the Democratic White House and Republicans in Congress on fiscal issues. The divide was particularly stark on the corporate tax proposal given that both parties generally have supported overhauling the code for businesses, though the White House and Republicans have differed on specifics. Obama outlined his pro-

posal in a speech at a massive plant in Chattanooga, his latest stop on a summertime campaign to refocus his agenda on the economy. He said “serious people” in both parties should accept his offer. “I’m willing to work with Republicans on reforming our corporate tax code, as long as we use the money from transitioning to a simpler tax system for a significant investment in creating middle-class jobs,” Obama said. “That’s the deal.” But the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, complained that Obama’s plan was simply a repackaging of proposals the White House has always supported. “It’s the opposite of a concession,” said spokesman Brendan Buck, noting that Republicans want to link a corporate tax overhaul with changes in the individual tax code.

ease harsh living conditions in the West Bank and Gaza. The two senior officials said those measures complement a $4 billion private sector economic program that Kerry is trying put in place to assist the Palestinians. After Tuesday’s conclusion of preliminary talks, Kerry said, “I firmly believe the leaders, the negotiators and citizens invested in this effort can make peace for one simple reason: because they must.” He said, “A viable two-state solution is the only way this conflict can end. And there is not much time to achieve it.” Kerry said the negotiations, to be mediated on a day-to-day basis by his new Mideast peace envoy, Martin Indyk, would be cloaked in secrecy and that the parties had agreed that he would be the only person to comment on them. He quickly added that he would not comment on them now, leaving unclear the framework for the talks that he struggled for six months to get back on track. Despite the secrecy, the broad outlines of an agreement are well known: The Palestinians want a state based on the borders, with agreed land swaps, that existed before the 1967 war in which Israel seized east Jerusalem and occupied the West Bank and Gaza.

Morsi gets a visit, but Egypt crisis stalemated Sarah El Deeb Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s military gave the ousted president his first contact with the outside world since removing him from office, allowing Europe’s top diplomat Tuesday to meet with Mohammed Morsi in his secret detention. She emerged from her two-hour talks with him urging all sides to move on toward a peaceful transition. Despite the military’s gesture, two days of efforts by the EU’s Catherine Ashton to find a solution to Egypt’s crisis hit a brick wall. Some voices in the military-

backed government, including Vice President Mohammed ElBaradei, have arisen hoping to avert a security crackdown on Morsi’s supporters, but neither side has budged in their positions, which leave no visible room for compromise. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood and his Islamist allies say the only solution is for Egypt’s first freely elected president to be restored to office, and they have vowed to continue their street rallies until that happens. Tuesday evening, they held new marches in Cairo outside the military intelligence offices, and in other cities around the country.

Manning From page 1 too surprising that it elicited a strong reaction from the government,” Aftergood said. “Most journalists are not in the business of publishing classified documents, they’re in the business of reporting the news, which is not the same thing,” he said. “This is not good news for journalism, but it’s not the end of the world, either.” Glenn Greenwald, the journalist, commentator and former civil rights lawyer who first reported Edward Snowden’s leaks of National Security Agency surveillance programs, said Manning’s acquittal on the charge of aiding the enemy represented a “tiny sliver of justice.” But WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, whose website exposed Manning’s spilled U.S. secrets to the world, saw nothing to cheer in the mixed verdict. “It is a dangerous precedent and an example of national security extremism,” he told reporters at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, which is sheltering him. “This has never been a fair trial.” To prove aiding the enemy, prosecutors had to show Manning had “actual knowledge” the material he leaked would be seen by al-Qaida and that he had “general evil intent.” They presented evidence the material fell into the hands of the terrorist group and its former leader, Osama bin Laden, but struggled to prove their assertion that Manning was an anarchist computer hacker and attention-seeking traitor. Coombs said during trial that Manning had no way of knowing

whether al-Qaida would access the secret-spilling website and a 2008 counterintelligence report showed the government itself did not know much about WikiLeaks at the time. An aiding the enemy charge for someone who didn’t directly give an adversary information is extremely rare, and prosecutors had to cite a Civil Warera court-martial of a Union soldier when they brought the charge against Manning. “I think certainly that a conviction on that charge would have had a ripple effect,” said Lisa Windsor, a retired Army colonel and former judge advocate. “I think it would have had certainly a chilling effect on anyone in the military who might decide that this is some sort of freedom of speech or whistleblower thing that they needed to engage in.” The judge did not give any reasons for her verdict from the bench, but said she would release detailed written findings. She did not say when. Manning acknowledged giving WikiLeaks more than 700,000 battlefield reports and diplomatic cables, and video of a 2007 U.S. helicopter attack that killed civilians in Iraq, including a Reuters news photographer and his driver. Prosecutors branded him an anarchist and traitor. The defense portrayed the Crescent, Okla., native as a “young, naive but good-intentioned” figure. Manning said during a pretrial hearing he leaked the material to expose

U.S military “bloodlust” and diplomatic deceitfulness, but did not believe his actions would harm the country. Besides the aiding the enemy acquittal, Manning was found not guilty of one espionage count involving his acknowledged leak of a video from a 2009 airstrike in Afghanistan. The judge found that prosecutors had not proved Manning leaked the video in late 2009. Manning said he started the leaks in February the following year. Manning pleaded guilty earlier this year to lesser offenses that could have brought him 20 years behind bars, yet the government continued to pursue all but one of the original, more serious charges. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, welcomed Tuesday’s verdict. “Bradley Manning endangered the security of the United States and the lives of his own comrades in uniform when he intentionally disclosed vast amounts of classified data,” he said. “His conviction should stand as an example to those who are tempted to violate a sacred public trust in pursuit of notoriety, fame, or their own political agenda.” Some of Manning’s supporters attended nearly every day of the two-month trial, protesting outside the Fort Meade gates wearing T-shirts with the word “truth” on them. “I never in my heart ever

thought that he was a traitor and I never thought he was trying to aid the enemy,” Joe Brown of Silver Spring, Md., said outside the courtroom. “He’s an American hero who saw things we did that he didn’t think were right … The killing of people unnecessarily.” The WikiLeaks case is by far the most voluminous release of classified material in U.S. history. Manning’s supporters included Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg, whose sensational leak of 7,000 pages of documents in the early 1970s exposed U.S. government lies about the Vietnam War. Reacting to Tuesday’s verdict, Ellsberg said Manning’s acquittal on aiding the enemy limits the chilling consequences of the WikiLeaks case on press freedoms. “American democracy just dodged a bullet, a possibly fatal bullet,” Ellsberg said. “I’m talking about the free press that I think is the life’s blood of the democracy.” The material WikiLeaks began publishing in 2010 documented complaints of abuses against Iraqi detainees, a U.S. tally of civilian deaths in Iraq, and America’s weak support for the government of Tunisia — a disclosure that Manning supporters said helped trigger the Middle Eastern pro-democracy uprisings known as the Arab Spring ——— Associated Press writers Raphael Satter in London and Sagar Meghani and Calvin Woodward in Washington contributed to this report.

SWEET SPICE Dear Readers: Looking for a new spice to add to your cooking? Try mace. No, not the stuff used to spray bad guys. With a sweet flavor, it is more pungent than nutmeg, with a golden-brown color. Mace is part of the nutmeg seed. You can buy it ground or whole-blade. Since the two are closely related, you can substitute nutmeg and mace in recipes. Mace can be added to desserts, barbecue sauce and Swedish meatballs. It even can be sprinkled on potatoes or added to vegetable soups. Pick up a small bottle and spice up your life a little! — Heloise VEGETABLE BROTH Dear Heloise: Don’t toss

When I have a bagful, I plunk it all into a pot, add water and one 12-ounce can of vegetable juice, and make some vegetable broth. I let this simmer until the “vegetables” are done. Strain the broth and toss the veggies. You get a real nice broth for soup or whatever you make that calls for broth. You also can refreeze the broth for another day. Adding a clove or two of garlic and a bay leaf makes a great soup starter or simply a warm broth on a cool day. — Susan, via email

Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and can be purchased at the theater box office or online at: https:// site/tickets. The Sunshine Project goal is to help integrate children with and without special needs through play and learning, to create acceptance of all special needs and open the door toward a better tomorrow for children and their families. “Once the movie is over, families can feel free to head over to the handicapped accessible Sunshine Playground at Bremenfest Park and continue a fun evening of family play,” said Hough. “We hope you all enjoy the movie and if we have a good turnout, we hope to show another soon.”

United Way 2011 results clarified Despite ‘uncollectables,’ campaign exceeded goal

Editor’s note: In Monday’s edition, the Sidney Daily News mistakenly reported results of the 2011 Shelby County United Way campaign. The following article correctly reports those results. The SDN apolo-

gizes for the error. The Shelby County United Way recently reported during a meeting of its board of trustees that $31,258 in pledges to its 2011 campaign had been uncollectable. The goal of the cam-

paign was $1.3 million. That goal was exceeded. The total amount pledged in 2011 was $1,371,032, according to Executive Director Scott Barr. The uncollectable $31,258 represents slightly more than 2 percent of the

Recent birth

total, “which is unbelievable in our industry,” Barr said. When the uncollectables were subtracted, the final 2011 amount exceeded the goal by $39,774 or 3.1 percent. Barr said that the organization annually budgets for uncollectables, so the 2011 figure represents

a positive result for the campaign. “It’s amazing we have such a wonderful community to pledge $1,371,000,” Barr said. “In every campaign we have charge-offs (uncollectable pledges). People lose their jobs or companies are acquired by other companies. Every organi-

zation has to budget for uncollectables. The Sidney Daily News reported in November 2011 that the campaign had closed with donations totalling $1,312,821. Barr noted that by Christmas of that year, additional pledges and contributions had raised the total to $1,371,032.

the website. “The Counterfeit Report actually shows consumers the sophistication of counterfeiters and their ability to create almost visually identical counterfeit products and packaging. If it’s manufactured, it’s probably counterfeited and it will likely fool you,” said Crosby. The Counterfeit Report is the first and only website that provides manufacturers an immediate resource on which to list and update their counterfeit product information in a central venue. This helps consumers to easily and instantly identify counterfeit products before they buy, and expands consumer awareness of counterfeit products they would never suspect, like the Gillette razor blades, U.S. Coast Guardapproved fire extinguishers and Chanel perfume. The anti-counterfeiting effort is more than protecting a trademark or brand; it is also protecting consumers and pets from unsafe and

potentially deadly products and medications. Counterfeit statistics are staggering. Up to 40 percent of online prescriptions are counterfeit, Amazon Marketplace was recently identified as a leader in the proliferation of counterfeit products, and the U.S. military reported a huge influx of counterfeit parts that are The Counterfeit Report Can you tell which of these Gillette Razor Blades is counterfeit? putting troops at risk.

Website helps identify fake products LOS ANGELES, Calif. — It’s said, “A picture is worth 1000 words,” and this certainly holds true in helping consumers identify counterfeit products. The website, The Counterfeit Report at www. theCounterfeitReport . com, provides exactly that. Products from more than 200 global brands are featured with actual photos comparing real and counterfeit products to help consumers avoid being deceived by counterfeit products. The first of its kind, The Counterfeit Report is a reference library of counterfeit products and medicines that are widely available to consumers from swap meets and Internet vendors, including popular websites, eBay and Amazon. “Consumers are at a real disadvantage when it comes to identifying counterfeit products,” said founder Craig Crosby. “We show them how to avoid being deceived by a fake.”

The counterfeit product industry is an exploding $700 billion global criminal industry with little information or protection available to consumers until now. Counterfeit goods, mainly from China, have become as profitable for Asia’s criminal gangs as illegal drug trafficking according to a United Nations report. Yet, counterfeiters continue to pump an avalanche of counterfeit auto parts, fashion accessories, heath care items, medications, pet supplies and sporting goods into a market already saturated with fake Rolex watches and designer handbags. The Counterfeit Report provides consumers a free and informative visual guide to detecting counterfeit products, while providing manufacturers with brand protection and direct consumer education. Consumers can also report seeing or purchasing counterfeit products directly to the manufacturer right on

Acura NSX prototype to break cover at mid-Ohio raceway TORRANCE, Calif. — Acura has released an image of a prototype NSX supercar, announcing that the running prototype will take to the racetrack just prior to the Honda Indy 200 IndyCar Series race at MidOhio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The NSX prototype with custom graphics will lap the road course in advance of the race on Sunday. The race will be broadcast live by NBC Sports Network starting at 3 p.m. EDT. Global development of the NSX, slated for launch in 2015, is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas

Inc. in Raymond, Ohio. Additionally, it was announced in May that the next-generation Acura supercar will be produced at the newly established Performance Manufacturing Center in nearby Marysville. The prototype model maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, while packaging the production vehicle’s mid-mounted V-6 engine mated to Acura’s innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.

How to get a prior year tax return WASHINGTON — There are many reasons why you should keep a copy of your federal tax return. For example, you may need it to answer an IRS inquiry. You may also need it to apply for a student loan or a home mortgage. If you can’t find your tax return, the IRS can provide a copy or give you a transcript of the tax information you need. Here’s how to get your federal tax return information from the IRS:

1. Transcripts are free and you can get them for the current year and the past three years. In most cases, a transcript includes all the information you need. 2. A tax return transcript shows most line items from the tax return you originally filed. It also includes items from any accompanying forms and schedules you filed. It does not reflect any changes made after you filed your original return. 3. A tax account tran-

script shows any changes either you or the IRS made to your tax return after you filed it. This transcript includes your marital status, the type of return you filed, your adjusted gross income and taxable income. 4. You can get transcripts on the web, by phone or by mail. To request transcripts online, go to and use the Order a Transcript tool. To order by phone, call 800-908-9946 and follow the prompts.

5. To request a 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ tax return transcript by mail or fax, complete Form 4506TEZ, Short Form Request for Individual Tax Return Transcript. Businesses and individuals who need a tax account transcript should use Form 4506-T, Request for Transcript of Tax Return. 6. If you order online or by phone, you should receive your tax return transcript within five to 10 calendar

interviews in Sidney in mid-August. “Our real estate department looks at several factors prior to leasing a space. We think this is a great opportunity for us in Sidney,” Posner said. Cato had reported to investors in June that same-store sales were down 2 percent and the year over year results were down 4 percent. The July report told investors that same-store sales had recovered 1 percent, making year over year sales down 3 percent. Current stock price on the NYSE is $27.69 per share.

Letter to the editor Common Core Curriculum bad for schools To the editor: Is the Sidney school board aware of all the harm that will be done to our local school children if Common Core Curriculum is implemented in our local schools? Phyllis Schlafly states in her newsletter of July 2013: “Common Core is the attempt of Barack Obama’s Department of Education to force all states and schools to adopt national education standards for each grade level that will dictate what all kids learn and don’t learn. … They plan on having the power to dictate and overrule all decisions by state and local school boards, state legislatures, parents, and even Congress.” In other words, we will lose our freedom to decide locally what our children need to learn to succeed, and instead be dictated by the president’s appointed Department of Education and their choice of curriculum for our students. When the federal government takes control of an area that we should be doing at the local level, all competition ceases and we lose our freedom to control that area of life. Kelly Kohls, president of the Springboro school board, is opposed to implementing Common Core. What will happen in Sidney? Mary Durbin 201 Lunar St.

During discussion on the House floor regarding the tax cuts in the state budget, a fellow state representative made a simple, but important, point. While we might not always think of it in this way, taxes and freedom share a strong link. The less money the government takes out of our pockets, the more freedom we have to spend it the way we want. His message seems especially appropriate this time of year, as we just celebrated our nation’s independence. Along with the anticipation of continued job creation, freedom is certainly a worthy reason to

support reducing taxes. At the same time, it is important that the state provides proper funding for things like schools and universities. The final version of the budget increases state aid to nearly 70 percent of Ohio schools, with no school district receiving less money than it did during the last fiscal year. In west-central Ohio we have some of the best schools in the entire state. It is important to me that we reward their exemplary achievements by providing them with the resources they need to continue producing young people prepared for college and careers.

Letters to the editor Show you care, vote “yes” for Sidney To the editor: Please join us in voting “yes” for Sidney City Schools on Tuesday. The school system has listened and responded to the community’s requests and now it is our turn to support them on this upcoming levy.

As very active parents in the school system, we have seen the successful impact that Sidney City Schools has on its students. The passage of this levy is needed to maintain and continue a healthy school system for our kids and the community.

There are many informational pieces out there if you need the facts. Go online and visit Please show you care and vote “yes” for Sidney! Mitch and Jayne Smith 584 E. Hoewisher Road

Solid school system cornerstone of every great community To the editor: My wife, Marilyn, and I both support the upcoming school levy that is on the ballot on Tuesday. Marilyn and I are both retired but we believe that a solid school system that you can be proud of is the cornerstone of every great community. The leadership and the educators of our school system listened and responded when the community asked them to

cut costs. They heard us when we asked the teachers and school employees to take on a bigger portion of the expenses for their insurance. They did so much that our teachers and school employees took the biggest pay cut of any school system in the state of Ohio. Most importantly, the school leadership heard the community when they said no more property tax increase to pay

for schools. They heard the community say that we’d prefer an income tax. With an income tax everyone that lives in the Sidney School District with an income will share the cost of education, not just the homeowners. For retired people drawing Social Security income, this levy passage will not impact you. It is important to stress that our Social Security income will not be taxed. One more thing,

this is a replacement levy and our property taxes will go down. The Sidney School system, its teachers, secretaries, custodians, and all of their employees have kept their promise to cut their costs and keep education levels high. It is now time for the community to join Marilyn and me and vote “yes” for the levy on Tuesday. Gary Elsass 560 Bon Air Drive

Put the brakes on here! To the editor: Consider this, fellow citizens. We have once again been fed the same information about how much sacrifice has been made by the Sidney school system in their attempt to gather more money from us. I have read it all in the Sidney Daily and the web site from “tax central.” I will admit progress has been made to save some of “our” money, but now they are spending what is anticipated being taken from us. This economy doesn’t warrant taking more money from us yet simply because you have “listened and responded!” This is not the good times financially for many working families due to cuts in hours and benefits. Put the brakes on here! I believe the city of Sidney is in need of income tax money also. Look around at the cracked streets,

the weeds and overgrown bushes in the parks, less plowing in winter. Services and personnel have been strained. That tax benefits all citizens of Sidney and visitors to Sidney. The dilemma now is to decide how to “split” this baby in half and give each entity their just portion. We know the city will be back soon. Can we allow the city government and the government schools to eat away our income just as the federal government has said they want more? By the way, the state of Ohio is increasing taxes also. I am aware of the needs of the Sidney schools. It is the wants for so much more that has me concerned once again. Perhaps the school board will use a scalpel instead of a hammer when finding ways to fund an education for the kids. They deserve

a better system that rounds them out before graduation so they are prepared for the world, as much as possible. Test scores should be real and a whole lot higher than what has been printed in the paper. Make that happen and show us money well spent. After all, citizens are here to help fund the education in the classrooms and not all the extras, including the employees salary increases by way of a generous benefits package and perks. Put the brakes on here! Just because you can ask for more money does not justify actually doing it. More money is coming in from the state, so use that wisely. I want to have faith in you, school board. Show us a better return on our investment. Jeff Wagner 830 S. Main Ave.

Make a positive impact on the community To the editor: For the last several years, I have watched our Sidney City Schools go from a state of disrepair to a place of hope. A few years ago, our world, national, state and local economies were on the brink of failure, as was our school district. Today, we are all on the mend and continuing to heal. As a levy co-chair I realize that our school is not perfect, nor have we claimed to be. What I can say is that the improvements made from a financial standpoint are amazing. The barometer of

measurement I hear often in the political arena is, “Are we better off today than we were four years ago?” And, folks we can answer that with an emphatic yes! We are not going to solve world, national and state issues here in Sidney by Tuesday. However, we can make a positive impact on our local community on Tuesday and continue to seek improvements in our school district. There have been many supporters throughout the campaign process, and we thank you for giv-

ing us the hope and stamina to continue to fight for our Sidney City Schools and Sidney community. There are also those who have been little less than enthusiastic about our goal of replacing the current, expiring funding for our district. Whatever your opinion is, I just ask that you please research your own personal financial data. We have been extremely diligent about making the information on how to calculate your own circumstances readily available. There is no cookie-cutter answer on how much less or more

you will have to pay to support our schools and community, it takes a bit of effort on your part to determine that. If you need help, just ask us. We’d be more than happy to walk you through the process. We ask that you research your own individual circumstances, balance your needs with those of the community, and then determine if that results into a yes vote. Vote “yes” for Sidney! Renee Davis, Co-Chair Citizens for Sidney Schools

As school system goes, so goes community To the editor: On Tuesday, the residents of the Sidney City School District are being asked to approve a 1 percent income tax levy for five years. The levy replaces the current 9.9-mill property tax levy. As a lifelong resident, Sidney High School graduate, and a local business owner I have a deep affection for the Sidney community. I feel as the school system goes, so goes the community and I am very encouraged about the future for both! The Sidney City Schools have listened to the concerns of the voters. They have placed an income tax levy as opposed to a property tax on the ballot; staff reductions

amounting to approximately 20 percent of the workforce; and most importantly the largest reduction in salary and benefits (5.8 percent) in the state of Ohio by our teachers, support staff and administration. These are all actions that mirrored what our families and local businesses were faced with during the same time period. The school system has acted by including additional programs and services without returning to the voters for additional funding. These include all-day kindergarten, vo-ag/food service technology program and enhanced security. With the passage of the 1 percent income tax and the responsible

spending, the school system is budgeted to provide the same level of staffing and programs without any additional funds through 2017. I would encourage you to visit the levy website: There are a number of links and resources that further explain the income tax as opposed to a property tax, and more information on all the positive things that are happening in our school system. I feel that the Sidney City Schools are headed in the right direction. Please join me in voting “yes” on Tuesday. Michael Jannides 427 S West Ave.

Rhonda Pence, of Sidney, announces the fundraising results of various teams during the 2012 Relay for Life event held at the Shelby County Fairgrounds.

Relay for Life at fairgrounds Friday and Saturday Patricia Ann Speelman

As cancer survivors set off on the first lap of the 2013 Shelby County Relay for Life at the fairgrounds Friday, Janet Langley will be among them. The Sidney resident battled breast cancer in 2006 and won by having a mastectomy, chemo and radiation treatments at Upper Valley Medical Center. “Once my hair grew back, so far, everything’s been great,” Langley said. The annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society will begin at 6 p.m. with opening ceremonies and the annual survivor’s lap. Thereafter, survivors, families and friends will continuously walk around the track until noon Saturday. Co-chairpersons Rhonda Pence and Amy Breinich, both of Sidney, and Bob Romanowski, of Anna, have planned many events to keep people awake, involved and having fun throughout the night. The goal is to raise $220,000. At press time, fundraising teams had already accepted donations totalling $98,775. Langley has participated in the walk every year since her diagnosis. She also walks in the annual Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure in Columbus, which supports breast cancer research. “That’s 45,000 people getting together,” she said. “I like the relay. It’s smaller, more personal. You see so many people out there that you know. Everybody knows somebody who’s been touched by cancer.” Pence expects 4,0005,000 people to attend the relay, which is open to the public to watch at no charge. Some

events charge a participation fee. One of them, new this year, will be a frozen T-shirt contest, Pence said. “It costs $3 per person to get into the contest,” she said. “The T-shirts were wet. Now they’re frozen. The first person to thaw the shirt and get a head and arm into the shirt wins.” The competition will begin at 7:30 p.m. when 100 T-shirts, now in Pence’s freezer at home, will arrive at the fairgrounds in coolers. Also new this year is a cornhole tournament, which will take place in the 4-H barn between midnight at 2:30 a.m. Other additions to the festivities are line dancing at 12:15 a.m., Zumba at 2 a.m. and a Look Good Feel Better race at 5 a.m. For the latter, “contestants dress themselves up in newspapers before someone else does,” Pence said. Traditional activities will be included, too: A dinner, provided by Wilson Hospital for survivors, follows the survivor lap. An auction of donated baked goods will begin at 7 p.m. The moving luminaria ceremony will take place at 9 p.m. Luminaria are for sale at $10 now and can be purchased by emailing shelbycountyrelayforlife@ or calling Rosalinda Hull at 4891017. They will also be for sale at the fairgrounds until 8 p.m. The Saturday morning auction, at 8 a.m., will feature an acoustic guitar that has been autographed by country music star Blake Shelton. It was donated by Country Concert ‘13. Also on the auction block will be a glider swing, among other items. A pancake breakfast will be available from 7

to 9 p.m. Some of the 52 teams already registered to participate will sell food items throughout the event. Hungry walkers and onlookers can choose pulled pork sandwiches, cookies, pink lemonade, popcorn, doughnuts, coffee, nachos, s’mores, chicken dinners, tenderloin sandwiches, freeze pops, walking tacos, baked goods, hamburgers, hot dogs, snow cones, cotton candy, sausage and peppers, chicken wings, sugar cookies, funnel cakes, pretzels, pizza, corn on the cob, caramel corn, brownies or ice cream to keep their stomachs from rumbling. It’s not too late for teams to register to participate. They can do so online at www. and searching for “Relay events in our area.” Popular activities include the MiSSter Relay at 11 p.m., tug of war among eight-man teams at 2:45 a.m., pop pong at 4 a.m., the sunrise service at 7 a.m., minute to win it at 9 a.m. personal testimonies at 11 a.m. and closing ceremonies at 11:30 a.m. Teams will have booths erected and will stage their own sales and contests, as well. Raffles of gift baskets, a quilt, bicycles, a generator and a KitchenAid mixer will be available. Teams also plan to sell cornhole boards, wreaths, bracelets, flameless candles, magets and Duct tape hair bows. A blood drive will take place Friday night and Saturday morning. Langley said her sister suffered from — and survived — breast cancer before Langley did. But their niece wasn’t so lucky. She died from the disease. Langley’s father died from cancer, too. “I’ve always tried to

be a positive person,” she said. But as a survivor, “I don’t take anything for granted.” A Walmart employee, Langley used to participate on the store’s Relay for Life team. “They haven’t done it (fielded a team) in the last couple years. I go out and walk with Rhonda,” she said. She has never spent the entire night at the event.

“I applaud the people who stay all night. It takes a lot of effort to do that,” she noted. Langley usually stays until about midnight and then returns the following morning. Her favorite part of the event is walking around the track. “It’s a good feeling to be out there with everybody for the same cause,” she said.

This week’s question:

Pernicious anemia is a condition where the body cannot absorb B-12 normally. Monthly injections often are used to treat this condition. However, daily oral B-12 supplements are just as effective for nearly everybody. Many of my own patients prefer to keep taking their injections, which surprises me.

White blood cells can come from the kidney itself. Some kidney diseases can cause white cells in the urine, but usually also demonstrate abnormal kidney function in blood tests. Chronic infection of the prostate can cause pus in the urine, but your urologist is the expert in diagnosing this. Some bacteria in the bladder or urethra, such as Ureaplasma, don’t easily show up in culture and need to be specifically looked for A rare cause, but one in all the textbooks and which I dutifully learned, is tuberculosis of the kidney.

Odds and ends MATTOON, Ill. (AP) — If finding a high school ring doesn’t seem like a big deal consider this: Until a few days ago, the last time Dick Diedrich saw his ring he was living in suburban Chicago with his parents and Harry Truman was in the White House. Diedrich, 82, now has his class of 1949 ring from J. Sterling Morton High School in Cicero thanks to a Waukesha, Wis., man who returned it to him after finding it with a metal detector in a lake near his home. The ring’s journey back to its proper owner in Illinois began with Mike Geiger’s phone call earlier this month to the Mattoon home of Dick Diedrich and his wife of 60 years, Doris. “He said, ‘I think I have something that goes back to your high school years,” Dick Diedrich said. “At that point the story with the ring popped into my head.” It seems that back in high school, Diedrich exchanged rings with his

then-sweetheart, Doris. He said she only took his ring off “when they were dissecting frogs” in biology class. In mid-1948, Doris put it on a shelf to wash her hands after biology class and when she turned around the ring was gone, as was another girl in the washroom. “She was quite confident it got stolen,” Diedrich told The Associated Press. That’s how things stood until Geiger called. He explained to Diedrich that he was using a metal detector at a lake near his home when he discovered the ring and pulled it from the water. “It really was in excellent shape for being so old,” said Diedrich. Gieger did a little detective work, Diedrich explained. He contacted the school’s alumni association and was told that out of the 1949 class of about 1,500 students, there were two graduates with the initials R.D., including Richard “Dick” Deidrich.

Geiger called the other R.D., but he wasn’t very friendly, so he called Diedrich, the newspaper reported. Believing he had the right R.D., he mailed Diedrich the ring. Diedrich said he wanted to send Geiger a reward, “but he said he was just pleased to be able to return it.” He sent him one anyway, along with a nice letter. Deidrich has continued to do research to make sure that the ring is, in fact, his. But he said Geiger is convinced the ring is in the hands of the rightful owner. “‘It’s your ring’ he told me. ‘Keep it and enjoy it,’” Diedrich said. “So the bottom line is, I’m now sitting here at 82 years old with my class ring 63 years later.” —Information from: Mattoon JournalGazette,

Did you know that there are more than 42,000 highway bridges in Ohio? The state of Ohio has the second largest number of bridges in the United States. One of the most unique bridges in the state is the Y Bridge located in Zanesville. A Y bridge is shaped like the letter “y.” The first Y Bridge in Zanesville was built in 1813. It was an open wooden bridge which joined Zanesville on the east side of the Muskingum River with the north and south sides of the Licking River. In its early years, this was a toll bridge. Travelers had to pay anywhere from three cents to seventy-five cents to cross. The bridge fell into the river just a few years after it was constructed. Both the second and third bridges were covered bridges. Construction on the third Y Bridge began This is an aerial photo of the Zanesville Y Bridge circa in 1832. The third bridge 1930-1950. was built quickly because a Courtesy of the Ohio Historical Society flood threatened the area. While it was still under construction, the supports under the eastern span were in danger of collapsing. Support wedges were put in place until the bridge could be completed.

Rookie TE Eifert making impression at Bengals camp Joe Kay

AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI (AP) — No question who’s one of the early stars of filming for the Cincinnati Bengals’ latest appearance on “Hard Knocks.” Whenever the camera crews shoot footage of people catching the ball, rookie tight end Tyler Eifert is in the frame often. Just as planned. The 21st overall pick out of Notre Dame was expected to add another dimension to Cincinnati’s run-of-the-mill passing game, which ranked only 17th in the league last season. With All-Pro receiver A.J. Green sidelined by a knee injury in camp, Eifert has been getting the ball more than many others with a lot more experience. Cincinnati may have found someone to take the defense’s focus off Green. “He’s done everything we thought and more,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. “He’s just one of those guys that when he makes a play, you kind of look around and see if anybody else

saw what he just did. “He’s running routes and catching the ball. He’s very natural at what he does. He can beat man coverage no problem. He can beat zones. He’s got a great feel for the game.” Those who have covered him the first five days of camp have been impressed. Eifert comes

up with the ball even when there’s someone right on top of him. “He’s got a different skill-set than a lot of tight ends, I think, as far as the way he runs routes,” cornerback Terence Newman said. “He’s a big guy, but he moves kind of like he could be a big wideout. It’s kind of like the 49ers,

Minster softball player going to Netherlands Rachel Heckaman, who will be a senior on the Minster High School softball team next spring, has been chosen to play for the United States team in “The Cup” in the Netherlands next January. Fifty American athletes have been selected to play for five U.S. teams in The Cup and will play against European national teams. Heckaman, the daughter of Chris and Lisa Heckaman of Sidney, played in the Queen of Diamonds Showcase last January, which was also by invitation only. “It was a great honor and opportunity,” Heckaman said. “College coaches from all over the U.S. use it to recruit for their teams as well. And it was there that I was noticed and invited to play on the Cup team next year.” She said the head coach for the Cup team said “team organizers want a great girl first, and a girl that can play the game.” “I’m thrilled to have been noticed and chosen,” she said. “Getting to play on an international softball stage is one great step in reaching my goal of playing major college fastpitch.” She is in the process of raising money for her trip, and invites any organizations, businesses or individuals who would like to assist to do so. However, Heckaman decid-

ed to add a twist. “I don’t just want to raise the money for myself,” she said. “So 50 percent of all the money I raise I would like to give to the Special Olympics. I have always wanted to help out with the Special Olympics but haven’t had the chance because I’ve always had a tournament or other softball commitments. But I’ve always had a special place in my heart for kids with special needs. It brings me joy to see kids with disabilities playing sports just like me and being happy doing something they love. The Special Olympics gives them that opportunity. “Similarly, softball has always been my safe place and has given me the confidence I’ve needed in other areas of my life. It has helped me grow as a person and I would like to give back to others by helping raise money for Special Olympics.” She will travel with her teammates to the Netherlands in mid January, play in a city outside of Rotterdam, and afterwards travel to Paris. “I can’t wait,” she said. More information on the event can be found at www.TheQSports. com. Rachel’s mother Chris said an account has been set up at FifthThird Bank, any branch, for those who would like to contribute.

what they do with Vernon Davis. He’s versatile and he can do anything they ask him to do. “He’s going to be somebody to be reckoned with this year, for sure.” That was the plan. Green emerged into one of the NFL’s best receivers during his first two seasons, but Cincinnati hasn’t been able to develop a consistent complement. Green had 97 catches for 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. The Bengals’ next-best receiver was Andrew Hawkins with only 51 catches for 533 yards and four touchdowns. No other receiver had more than 18 catches. Eifert was a dependable receiver at Notre Dame, where he lined up in the slot and at wide receiver positions. The Bengals plan to use him more like a receiver in two tight-end formations with Jermaine Gresham. Given his progress in camp, it looks like that will be an option from the outset. “It’s an extra piece,” Hawkins said. “Every year, guys are added to the offense, whether at wide receiver, running

back, tight end. There’s somebody new with unique abilities that will change things up a little bit. “He’s just another piece added to the offense. Hopefully it goes well for us, and so far it has. He’s done extremely well this camp and has such a great feel for the game.” The Bengals had two main questions about Eifert: How well can he block and how quickly can he pick up the offense? They’ll learn more about the blocking during preseason games. For now, he’s working on figuring out what’s expected in the passing game. “I’m still trying to learn the offense, make sure I know all the plays and different positions,” Eifert said. “But I think it’s going pretty smooth. “I’m starting to get to the point where I don’t have to think about where I’m going and what I’m doing. It comes more natural. I hope it keeps going that way.” It’ll be interesting to see how defenses decide to cover the 6-foot-6, 250-pound pass catcher. Defenses will likely try different matchups,

guarding him with a linebacker or smaller cornerback or safety at times. “It creates kind of a schematic matchup and it could favor us,” Newman said. “It poses different matchup questions, and nobody’s really going to know how to play it until you see what he does.” ——— NOTES: The Bengals were off on Tuesday. They practice again on Wednesday on their grass fields adjacent to the stadium. … Practice on Thursday will be moved to the evening at Paul Brown Stadium, the first of two fan family promotions. The Bengals will have an extended autograph session afterward and activities for children. … The Bengals will practice at Springboro High School on Monday, Aug. 19. The last time they practiced in the Dayton area was 2010 at the Welcome Stadium. Practice will be open to the public. ——— Online: www.pro32. and http://twitter. com/AP—NFL Follow Joe Kay on Twitter: http://twitter. com/apjoekay

Bowman, Knouff LJGA Players of the Year Jim Naveau

Fort Loramie’s Emily Knouff watches her tee shot on the eight hole during Monday’s LJGA Tournament Of Champions at Shawnee Country Club.

SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP – For one Lima Junior Golf Association Player of the Year, receiving that award Monday was the completion of a summer-long search. For the other, not so much. After Carter Bowman won the boys 16-18 division at the LJGA’s Tournament of Champions at the Shawnee Country Club on Monday, he said he had set his sights on being Boys Player of the Year. But Girls Player of the Year Emily Knouff said winning that award was something she hadn’t given much thought to. “I set out this year saying I wanted to win the Player of the Year,” said Bowman, a junior at St. Marys. “I played in the 14-15 age group last year and did well. I was playing well at the beginning of the year, so I thought Player of the Year this year.” Knouff said she took a different approach. “I really never thought about that. It was always just playing for fun,” the Fort Loramie freshman said.

Bowman shot a 78 to win the boys 16-18 division on Monday for his third LJGA win of the season to go with two second places and two third places. He finished strong with a 36 on the back nine, including an eagle at No. 16, after shooting a 42 on the front nine. In the girls 16-18 division, Kelsey Koesters, of Coldwater, repeated as the Tournament of Champions winner after she shot an 83. Knouff was runner-up with a 91. Knouff (eight wins) and Koesters (four wins) were the only golfers to win a tournament in the girls 16-18 division. Bowman and John Copella, with a 79, were the only golfers in the boys 16-18 division to break 80. As usual in the Tournament of Champions, the speed and well-concealed breaks in the Shawnee Country Club greens raised many of the scores. “Oh man. They were quick. They were a lot faster than any other green I’ve played this year. They were true but miss it and you’re way past and you’re in trouble,” Bowman said. “But I had only two 3-putts and had a couple 1-putts. You have to get used

to them and, hopefully, you knock them in,” he said. Koesters said, “I just tried to get the first one close, somewhere where I could make the next one. I was just glad to get into the 80s after I had a seven on the second hole. I just tried to putt a little better and hit more greens.” Knouff said the greens required some adjustments. “Everything was kind of fast, different than what I was used to, but you have to get used to it sometime,” she said. Joshah Rager won the boys 14-15 division with an 81 and Parker Frey was second with an 86. Jill Schmitmeyer led the girls 15-andunder division with a 49 and Alivia Koenig was runner-up with a 50. In the boys 12-13 division, Jared Hernandez (44) and Austin Radcliff (46) were the top finishers. Radcliff defeated Jacob Black in a playoff. The top golfers were honored with a dinner Monday night. Miami Valley Country Club head pro Doug Wade, a Lima Central Catholic graduate who played in last year’s PGA Championship was the speaker at the awards dinner.

Owner Bob Crotty holds a bat used by Shoeless Joe Jackson as he stands next to a display on the 1919 Chicago White Sox scandal July 23 inside the Green Diamond Gallery in Cincinnati. The club houses baseball memorabilia and allows members to Rows of baseball memorabilia covering the history of the game are displayed at the Green Diamond Gallery in Cincinnati. hear inside stories from the game’s greats in monthly meetings.

Gallery is mini-Cooperstown for baseball fans Dan Sewell Associated Press

MONTGOMERY (AP) — Shoeless Joe Jackson might have asked if THIS is heaven. Here was one of his thickhandled bats, being gripped lovingly and studied for cleat nicks and baseball smudges from games he played nearly 100 years ago. Newly arrived, it soon will be carefully displayed, near a rare Jackson signature, and in the days and years to come, it will be viewed by dedicated fans who will also be mingling with stars of the game. Jackson, depicted in the movie “Field of Dreams,” was banned from baseball for his role in the 1919 “Black Sox” World Series-fixing scandal, by lore disappointing a young fan who shouted: “Say it ain’t so, Joe!” But the ill-fated star has a place amid such greats as Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron in the Green Diamond Gallery in suburban Cincinnati. The gallery showcases a top private collection of baseball memorabilia while hosting a small club of fans who in recent months have been able to ask pitcher Jack Morris about falling short of making the Hall of Fame, slugger Jose Canseco about illicit steroid use, and manager Tony La Russa about secrets of the St. Louis Cardinals’ success. “There’s Cooperstown, then it’s Green Diamond, and I don’t know what would be a close

third,” La Russa said, referring to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, celebrating its annual induction weekend in upstate New York. The Hall’s president, Jeff Idelson, has visited the gallery and agrees it’s unlike anything else he’s seen outside Cooperstown. The gallery’s roots are in a child’s first trip to a baseball game five decades ago. Bob Crotty still savors memories of the sights, sounds and smells of Crosley Field, then home of the Cincinnati Reds. He was drawn to the souvenir stand, buying buttons and other inexpensive trinkets. And so it began. “Once I got the bug, I got it pretty bad,” Crotty said. The preteen boy cut lawns for cash to fund his new passion, and he spent hours writing letters to teams requesting yearbooks and other items. His bedroom desk and shelves filled, then his entire bedroom, then the family’s basement. He networked with collectors and learned the best auction houses and authenticators while becoming a top executive in the family-run Van Dyne Crotty uniform company. When it was bought in 2006 by industry giant Cintas Corp., Crotty suddenly had plenty of time and money — and a very large collection. “I was pretty much at a crossroads … either get rid of all this stuff or do something with it,” said Crotty, now 54. He met with Kevin Manley, who had

worked for a nonprofit that Crotty’s company supported, to brainstorm. Most collectors by nature want to protect their privacy and valuables, so not many fans get to view what they have. “I always wanted to give this a home where I could display it, share it in some capacity, maybe create an environment where we could do something different,” said Crotty, who made Manley the manager of what opened in 2007. It included: — A one-floor exhibit area packed with 4,000 items such as autographed baseballs, game-used jerseys, ballpark relics, rare documents, photos and letters, organized into categories such as Hall of Famers, greatest teams, the Negro Leagues and a tribute to character and courage honoring Jackie Robinson, Lou Gehrig and Roberto Clemente. — A private club, initially 100 dues-paying members, then upped to 250 with two levels of membership. The club, which includes female members, has a waiting list for the few spots in the top-level Wright Society that open each year, at $2,000 annual dues. — A charitable foundation, supporting baseball-related activities for economically disadvantaged youths and disabled and sick children. Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench has headlined fundraising events. — Monthly receptions, featuring question-and-answer

sessions with baseball’s stars and characters. Hall of Fame pitchers Steve Carlton, Bert Blyleven and Jim Bunning (also a former U.S. senator) were among last year’s speakers, and hitting star Rod Carew is coming up in August. “I was overwhelmed,” said La Russa, who spoke last month. “The collection is staggering, the whole concept of the club … You are surrounded by people who love the game.” Among them: Buck Newsome, an investment adviser who was part of initial word-of-mouth membership recruiting. “I was like a little kid again. It was just unbelievable,”

Newsome recalled. “Within five or 10 minutes, I asked, ‘How do I join?’” Newsome tries to make every meeting, appreciating the chance to rub elbows with stars in a convivial atmosphere for hearing inside stories. Speakers like talking baseball with knowledgeable fans who aren’t hounding them for autographs; after visiting, La Russa decided to help arrange for a Cardinal predecessor, Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst, to make an upcoming appearance. Rentals for special events such as off-site corporate meetings and wedding rehearsal dinners help cover operating costs. Tight space and security concerns restrict numbers of visitors, but the gallery opens once or twice a year for paid tours. Crotty, meanwhile, keeps adding. Besides the Jackson bat, he just bought Warren Spahn’s Hall of Fame ring after the late pitcher’s son put memorabilia up for auction. He doesn’t disclose prices paid and said the only way to know the value of his collection would be to sell it. “When you’re a collector, it can be a lonely journey,” Crotty said. “The beauty of having this model is I can continue to collect, and I’ve made friendships and relationships you can’t put a monetary value on.” ——— Online: www.greendiamondgallery. com

Leake sharp but Reds lose to Padres 2-1 SAN DIEGO (AP) — Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake had mixed emotions after pitching in front of family and friends for the first time in his career Monday night. “That’s all you can really ask for is to go into the last inning with an opportunity to win,” said Leake, who pitched seven scoreless innings and was one inning away from winning his 11th game of the season and fourth straight decision in front of his hometown fans. Padres pinch-hitter Chris Denorfia spoiled the homecoming when he hit a two-run home run off reliever Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Padres a 2-1 victory and hand the Reds their fourth straight defeat. Leake went seven scoreless innings, allowing four singles and retiring 12 of the final 13 batters he faced. “It’s awesome,” he said of pitching before family and friends. “I grew up here. I waited four years for it, it’s pretty cool to finally get the opportunity to do that.” Leake was matched up against another San Diego native, Sean O’Sullivan. The

two played together during their youth baseball careers. O’Sullivan, making his third start of the season for the Padres, went six innings and allowed one run on five hits. He walked five and struck out one. “That was kind of nice to have two things happen at once,” Leake said. “I’m glad neither one of us got a loss. But wish I had gotten a win, but I’m glad we both pitched good.” Chapman wasn’t as happy with his outing. “It was a fastball like I throw everybody,” the Reds closer said of the pitch to Denorfia. “I just threw a fastball and he hit a home run and there’s nothing I can do.” With the Reds leading 1-0, Chapman (3-4) walked leadoff batter Yonder Alonso. Denorfia then drove a 98 mph first-pitch offering from Chapman over the center-field fence 423 feet away to deal the Reds their fourth straight loss. “He’s not going to do anything tricky,” Denorfia said. “He’s going to throw it 100 mph. You have to be ready for the fastball. You have to sit on the fast ball.

“It was pretty sweet. It was one of those when you hit it hard on that part of the bat, you don’t even feel the vibration, it felt great,” Denorfia said of the first game-ending home run of his career and third walk-off hit of his career. Chapman was disappointed that he walked Alonso. “It bothered me because he was left-handed,” Chapman said. “I walked him and after that I had to just continue going.” It was Chapman’s fourth blown save of the season on his fifth home run allowed. “It sounded great off the bat,” Padres manager Bud Black said. “I say 80 percent of home runs you know it from the sound no matter who is pitching. But that sound tonight on his homer there doubt about it.” Luke Gregerson (5-5) pitched the ninth for the win. Reds center fielder Derrick Robinson led off the fifth with a triple off the fence in leftcenter. He scored when Cesar Izturis hit a grounder to first, which Alonso grabbed, touched first base for the putout then fired home, but Robinson just

Cowboys’ Allen takes quiet path to Hall of Fame Schuyler Dixon AP Sports Writer

DALLAS (AP) — Larry Allen had just been drafted by the Dallas Cowboys when he found himself standing in front of a couple of hundred kids attending a football camp at Sonoma State, the alma mater that made his future Hall of Fame career possible. His coach, Frank Scalercio, knew he was testing the best player he ever coached, coaxing the soft spoken but massive offensive lineman into a few words. “Just say no,” Allen blurted out. That was it. “I can see that nothing’s going to happen, so then I jump in and kind of close it out for him real quick,” Scalercio said. “Some of the guys still laugh about it today when they’re around. They talk about the first speech he made.” Allen is getting ready for another one. A

big one. After 12 dominant seasons and a Super Bowl title with the Cowboys — and two final years closer to home with San Francisco — Allen’s Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement speech Saturday night will be on national television in front of thousands of people at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio. Plenty of family and friends will be there — but not his mother, Vera Allen. The woman responsible for steering him away from gangs as a kid in the Los Angeles area died a year ago. The biggest public speaking gig of his life would have been the perfect time to have her around. “I miss her,” Allen said. “Whenever I’d get nervous or had a big game and got nervous, I’d give her a call, and she’d start making me laugh.” The six-time All-Pro has already cried once over the Hall of Fame — the day his name was announced. He’s not ashamed to say he’ll probably cry again.

Maricopa County sheriff ’s officials say divers pulled the 44-year-old’s body out of Bartlett Lake on Monday afternoon. Family members and friends say Castillo wasn’t a good swimmer, but he jumped off a pontoon boat Sunday afternoon for a swim and didn’t resurface. Divers searched for several hours before suspending the search until Monday. Castillo had an 82-104 record in 13 major league seasons. He pitched for the Chicago Cubs, Colorado, Detroit, Toronto, Boston and Florida from 1991 to 2005 before retiring and lived in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale. The Red Sox held a moment of silence for Castillo before Monday night’s game against Tampa Bay.

Sidney Daily News, Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Airport board discusses runway project The Sidney Municipal Airport Advisory Board devoted much of its recent meeting to discussion of a runway construction project that now is underway. Russ Goettemoeller, board chairman, called the meeting to order, noting it started later than usual because of the groundbreaking ceremony for the runway shift construction project held prior to the meeting. Construction on the runway shift began July 8 and the estimated completion date is mid-October. Airport Manager Mike Chappie said progress of the construction can be viewed on the airport’s Facebook page.

In the engineer’s report concerning the runway project, Greg Heaton reported that now that construction project has begun, weekly progress meetings will be held at the airport Wednesdays at 11 a.m., and minutes of the meetings will be sent to Deb Grogean, transit manager/airport coordinator. All board members indicated they would like to receive a copy of the weekly reports. She will email the weekly progress reports to board members and Chappie will post a copy in the terminal for view by all airport tenants and visitors. A question was raised about the 15 percent con-

tingency on the project. The board wondered if it would have an impact on next year’s funding if the contingency were used. Heaton said any overages could come out of next year’s nonprimary entitlement allocation. It was noted that the request to replace the existing beacon was denied and taken out of the construction project. It is a reimbursable expense and funding for the replacement unit could be requested in the future. When asked if a beacon is required, Heaton responded that he would find out. Board member Eric Kindig suggested that the existing beacon be moved to the

more than four feet tall are not planted in areas that obstruct the view of outgoing or incoming aircraft. Addressing the issue of standing water, Grogean has contacted the city engineer and underground utilities to resolve the problem. She will report their findings later. Because the airport currently does not have an official logo, Grogean asked if there would be interest in developing one for future use. The board will consider this item and discuss it at the October meeting. The chassis of the pickup truck has been delivered at the conversion company. No tentative delivery date of the truck, snowplow and brine tank has been set. Goettemoeller expressed concern about the use of brine. Chappie assured him the material used is safe for airport use and will be used sparingly. The city will include a request for a small tractor with a loader in next year’s application. The tractor would be used to remove snow around the buildings and fueling station. The next meeting is scheduled Oct. 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the airport terminal.

east to minimize any annoyance to surrounding neighbors. Heaton will have this option checked by one of airport consultant CMT’s staff. Heaton shared a copy of the tentative construction schedule and said the contractor believes that with decent weather the project can be completed by mid-October, or possibly sooner. The contractor, R.D. Jones Excavating Inc., has set up an aggressive schedule in order to complete the project before winter. The Air Fair is being planned in conjunction with the Shelby County Applefest. A shuttle will be provided by Shelby Public Transit from downtown to the airport. The balloon glow and car cruise-in will be held Sept. 5 and Gateway Arts Council will head up the Air Fair on Sept. 7 with “Race Around the World.” The event highlights countries from around the world in various t-hangars. In other business, Chappie reported the Upper Valley Career Center Open House was successful with a good turnout. The event unveiled improvements to the t-hangar and highlighted the work of the Aerospace Occupation program. Papers have been sub-

mitted for an Eagle Scout project to remove the grass on the north side of the terminal and replace it with landscaping pavers and add seating in the area. The project is scheduled for completion prior to the Air Fair. Sales of AV gas have increased almost 18 percent over last year, while sale of jet fuel fell slightly by less than 1 percent. Grogean has received reports of corn being planted in the runway clear zone. The owner has been contacted and the zone will be cleared. Goettemoeller had asked if it would be possible to plant an additional 25 feet of grass on both sides of Runway 10/28 to avoid wildlife hazards.
