Construction and mining and logging lost 6,300 and 100 jobs respectively. The private service-providing sector added 45,700 jobs. The most significant gains were posted in educational and health services (+20,800) and leisure and hospitality (+14,600). Also showing gains were professional and business services (+6,500), trade,

transportation, and utilities (+4,500), and other services (+2,300). Employment losses occurred in information (-2,400) and financial activities (-600). Government employment declined 9,800 as losses in local (-8,700) and federal (-2,500) government exceeded gains in state government (+1,400).

The mayor said he had been a supporter of the police chief “up until the last minute.” He said he lost faith after hearing Evans’ allegations about the Sheriff’s Office, including a claim that Anna Fire Chief Tim Bender had actually set a fire, something he called “preposterous.” Bender is also a lieutenant with the Sheriff’s Office. Geise told the Sidney Daily News the village would have to file charges against Evans before an administrative hearing is held. Geise declined to comment on the nature of the charges but said they will be made public. Geise said Anderson would run the hearing and that he would be present to offer legal advice. Geise noted that council members would be able to ask questions of any witnesses

brought forward. After the hearing, council can choose to suspend Evans, discharge him or dismiss the charges. Charges are expected to be filed early next week, Geise said. Village Council President Richard Eshleman said Evans will be at the hearing and will have an opportunity to speak. He may also have his attorney present. Eshleman expressed his support for the sheriff and his staff, noting they have been very supportive. “Our officers are part time, but they’ve been doing a little extra. The cooperation between them and the Sheriff’s Office has been great.” He also supported Bender, stating he has never seen anyone “put as much effort” in a volunteer fire department as Bender does.

Rejects From page 1 and what Anderson has termed a lack of professionalism. It was reported recently that Evans had filed a complaint with the FBI against Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart and others in the department, making a number of allegations of wrongdoing. Lenhart has said the claims are baseless. Anderson said he is concerned about Anna’s image as well as that of the Sheriff’s Office in light of the controversy. “I’m so afraid people will have a bad idea about the Village of Anna or the Sheriff’s Office,” he said. “That’s not fair. There is nothing (to the allegations) but hearsay. We don’t want to drive a wedge between us (and the Sheriff’s Office); they’ve been so helpful.”

3-day marijuana festival, rally at Seattle park SEATTLE (AP) — Thousands streamed into a Seattle waterfront park Friday for the opening of a three-day marijuana festival — an event that is part party, part protest and part victory celebration after the legalization of pot in Washington and Colorado last fall. “This is going to be the biggest year for Hempfest,” said Jack Beattie, an 18-year-old Seattle University student, as he shared a joint with two friends. “In past years, people were a little bit sketched out about smoking in public. Now, there’s going to be a lot more.” The free, annual event was expected to draw as many as 85,000 people per day. On Friday, many strolled by vendor stands, joints in hand as they checked out colorful glass pipes, tie-dyed clothing, bags of “ideal cultivation soil,” and hemp wares, including purses and necklaces. Others sprawled on the grass in the steamy sunshine, listening to bands and speeches, or lit bongs on the beach and watched ferries cross

Elliott Bay. Hempfest is in its 22nd year of advocating for the legalization of marijuana, and this is the first time it’s been held since last fall, when Washington’s voters approved Initiative 502 and Colorado’s passed Amendment 64, legalizing the possession of up to an ounce of pot by adults over 21. Both states are developing systems of state-licensed growers and processors, along with stores where taxed, regulated weed will be sold. Vivian McPeak, Hempfest’s executive director, said this year’s event was dedicated to reforming federal marijuana laws — specifically, the removal of marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, meaning a drug that has no medical benefit and a high likelihood of abuse. He asked festival-goers to make a voluntary $10 contribution to help offset the rally’s $800,000 cost. “When we started Hempfest in 1991, many people thought we were jousting in the wind,” McPeak said. “What we’ve seen with the historic passage

of I-502 and measure 62 in Colorado is that change is definitely in the wind.” That was a sentiment shared by 21-year-old Giovanni Pelligrino and three friends as they sat on a driftwood log getting stoned. “This year, it’s not really for us anymore,” he said. “It’s for everyone else, all the other states.” “As long as it’s illegal federally it’s not really legal anywhere,” added one of his companions, Dean Bakeberg, also 21. Technically, pub lic use of marijuana remains illegal under Washington’s new law, punishable by a $103 ticket. But Seattle police have only been giving people warnings since the law passed, and they had no plans to write anyone up at Hempfest. In fact, the cops planned to hand out Doritos on Saturday morning, said Sgt. Sean Whitcomb. In what they were calling “Operation Orange Fingers,” officers had about 1,000 bags of the nacho-cheese-flavored chips — which they affixed with labels reminding people of

some of the nuances of Washington’s legal pot law. Though it’s a huge party, Hempfest remains an important political event for many attendees, including Carole Defillo, of Monroe, and her son Collin Berry, 29, who said medical marijuana — in the form of a cannabis oil capsule twice a day — has made a world of difference for him since ulcerative colitis forced doctors to remove his large intestine in 2008. Since he started using the oil, he said, he has stopped taking any other painkillers and finds it much easier to walk around. “It’s always good to have a good time, but there’s people who are sick and who need it as medicine,” said Berry, lifting his shirt to reveal a gnarly scar on his abdomen. “That’s why I come to Hempfest. I don’t have a lot of money to donate, but I can bring my presence.” Online: Follow Johnson on Twitter at h tt p s : / / t w i tt e r. c o m / GeneAPseattle

WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (AP) — Even in southern West Virginia, where corruption is as much as a part of life as coal, people are shocked by allegations that a judge commandeered the legal system in a years-long attempt to frame a romantic rival for crimes he didn’t commit. Federal prosecutors indicted Mingo County Circuit Judge Michael

Thornsbury on two counts of conspiracy Thursday, just hours after indicting County Commissioner Dave Baisden on extortion charges. Thornsbury attorney Steve Jory declined comment while Baisden’s attorney did not return messages. The state Supreme Court has suspended Thornsbury and his law license, and a replacement

judge was set to take over his caseload Friday. Both officials are free while awaiting trial, but the indictments were painful news in a community still reeling from the assassination of its sheriff in April. “It’s hard for me to believe, because I personally know the judge. I know him as a personal friend. I’ve been to his home. I know his kids,” said Williamson minister Butch Gregory. Gregory’s wife, Louise, hired Thornsbury as her lawyer long before he became the county’s only judge in 1997. “As a married man, he

should have known better,” she said. “I don’t really trust nobody out here anymore.” The indictment says Thornsbury tried between 2008 and 2012 to frame Robert Woodruff for crimes including drug possession, larceny and assault. The judge had been having an affair with his secretary — Woodruff’s wife, Kim — and he tried to eliminate the competition after she tried to break things off, it says. The schemes involved a state trooper, the county emergency services director and another man, the indictment says, but none of them panned out.

News Briefs Man accused of throwing boiling water at wife COLUMBUS (AP) — A central Ohio man is facing felonious assault charges for allegedly throwing a large pot with boiling water on his wife. The 43-year-old James D. Collins, of Columbus, was arrested Friday on a felonious assault charge. WBNS in Columbus reports police found his wife crying along a Columbus road last week after he threw the water at her. She was hospitalized with second and third degree burns. Court records do not show an attorney for Collins.

Feds accuse ex-officer of assaulting inmate CLEVELAND (AP) — Federal authorities are accusing a former northeast Ohio corrections officer of assaulting an inmate. U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach in Cleveland announced Friday that 47-year-old Marlon Taylor, of Vermilion, has been charged for allegedly depriving an unidentified inmate from the right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment. Prosecutors allege Taylor on July 2012 repeatedly struck and injured the inmate at the Lorain County Jail. Dettelbach’s office says conviction carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine.

Man accused of hitting Ohio woman with bat DAYTON (AP) — A man paroled from a Georgia murder conviction has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly hitting a 73-yearold woman with a baseball bat in southwest Ohio. Montgomery County’s prosecutor says 48-yearold John Mason was indicted Friday on the attempted murder charge and two counts of felonious assault. Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. says Mason allegedly struck the woman in the head Aug. 8 with a wooden bat at the Huber Heights home where he lived with the woman and her daughter. The woman will require a prosthetic eye. The prosecutor says Mason was convicted in Georgia in 1987 of charges including murder. Court records do not list an attorney for Mason. The prosecutor says Mason told an emergency dispatcher that he struck the woman and wanted to return to prison.

Planned Ohio home for homeless veterans denied By AMANDA LEE MYERS

CINCINNATI (AP) — A plan to provide housing and substance-abuse treatment for homeless veterans in the southwestern Ohio city of Middletown has been derailed by a planning commission vote against it, with panel members saying the neighborhood might not be the best fit for the men and that the home was too close to other shelters. John Porter, the homeowner, said Friday that he’s exploring options to appeal the Middletown panel’s unanimous decision against allowing the veterans to stay in the house. Porter and Dayton-based Holt Street Miracle Center had paired up to house three to five homeless veterans as they’re treated for alcohol and substance abuse, but needed the city’s approval. At a commission meeting Wednesday, several neighbors of the proposed veterans home spoke out against the proposal, saying they didn’t want the veterans in the neighborhood because they could add to an already rife drug problem in the area. “I deal with people every day who are on heroin, all kinds of drug use,” neighbor Barbara Arnold told the commission before the vote, according to The Dayton

Daily News. “If this goes through, honestly, I would have to move. I wouldn’t stay there. I don’t feel it’s the right thing to do.” Supporters of the home say the veterans just need a place to pick themselves back up and are required to undergo random drug testing in order to stay in the program. “It just tears my heart out,” said Willa Fletcher, founder of Holt Street Miracle Center, which provides housing and treatment for veterans. “They just need somebody to love them, care for them and let them know they can make it. … As much as those boys go over there and fight for America and keep the enemy out of our country, they just have nowhere to go.” Porter, a Vietnam veteran himself, said it bothers him that neighbors didn’t want homeless veterans living in the house. “It really hurts,” he said. “These guys are fighting against it (drug and alcohol addiction). They’re wanting to rehab and get back to regular life.” While Porter said he wants to fight the commission’s decision, Fletcher said her group may just look for a different Middletown home. Marty Kohler, Middletown’s planning director, said the primary reason the commission rejected the veterans home

is a city ordinance that requires group homes be no closer than 500 feet from each other; the proposed home is within 300 feet of two other group homes. But another reason commissioners turned it down was the prevalence of drugs in the neighborhood, Kohler said. “The thought was this isn’t the healthiest environment to put people in if there’s drug trafficking going on around them,” he said, but added that the Holt Street Miracle Center never mentioned that they require random drug testing. Also, Kohler said that in 2005, Middletown’s city council adopted a policy preventing further low-income housing from being built in the city because there already was a “huge supply” and the struggling city wants to try to attract more businesses and middle- and higherincome classes. “Obviously if you further concentrate more poverty in a high-poverty area you’re going to force what we’re seeing in the region: more polarization. The rich become richer and the poor become poorer,” he said. “And Middletown is becoming that pocket of extreme poverty, and City Council wants to prevent that. “We would like to become a more diverse and balanced community,” he said.

Ohio player given 20-year sex-offender status By REGINA GARCIA CANO COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio high school football player convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl after an alcohol-fueled party was ordered Friday to register as a sex offender every six months for the next 20 years. Jefferson County Judge Thomas Lipps gave 17-yearold Ma’Lik Richmond the state’s second-toughest sex offender classification — Tier II — the same that his codefendant received in June. Unlike adult sex offenders, Richmond’s name won’t be included on publicly accessible websites. And he can request to have the sex offender classification removed later based on his history of rehabilitation. Richmond’s attorney, Walter Madison, declined to comment on the judge’s decision. The judge’s options for requiring Richmond to report to authorities ranged from every 90 days for life to once a year for 10 years. In March, Lipps convicted Richmond and co-defendant Trent Mays, 17, in the rape of the West Virginia girl following a party in Steubenville in eastern Ohio in August 2012. Richmond is serving at least a year in the Ohio juvenile detention system. Mays was also found guilty of using his phone to take a picture of the underage girl naked. He received a two-year minimum prison sentence. The victim’s attorney said Lipps’ classification decision on Friday did not come as a surprise. “It recognizes the seriousness of the offense that these young men committed and also the significance of the damages that occur when people that take advantage of other peoples’ bodies without consent,” said Wheeling, W.Va., attorney Bob Fitzsimmons.

World/Nation Today in History By The Associated Press

Today is Saturday, Aug. 17, the 229th day of 2013. There are 136 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 17, 1943, the Allied conquest of Sicily during World War II was completed as U.S. and British forces entered Messina. On this date: In 1807, Robert Fulton’s North River Steamboat began heading up the Hudson River on its successful round trip between New York and Albany. In 1863, Federal batteries and ships began bombarding Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor during the Civil War, but the Confederates managed to hold on despite several days of pounding. In 1915, a mob in Cobb County, Ga., lynched Jewish businessman Leo Frank, whose death sentence for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan had been commuted to life imprisonment. (Frank, who’d maintained his innocence, was pardoned by the state of Georgia in 1986.) In 1942, during World War II, U.S. 8th Air Force bombers attacked German forces in Rouen, France. U.S. Marines raided a Japanese seaplane base on Makin Island. In 1962, East German border guards shot and killed 18-yearold Peter Fechter, who had attempted to cross the Berlin Wall into the western sector. In 1969, Hurricane Camille slammed into the Mississippi coast as a Category 5 storm that was blamed for 256 U.S. deaths, three in Cuba. In 1978, the first successful trans-Atlantic balloon flight ended as Maxie Anderson, Ben Abruzzo and Larry Newman landed their Double Eagle II outside Paris. In 1983, lyricist Ira Gershwin died in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 86. In 1985, more than 1,400 meatpackers walked off the job at the Geo. A. Hormel and Co.’s main plant in Austin, Minn., in a bitter strike that lasted just over a year. In 1987, Rudolf Hess, the last member of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle, died at Spandau Prison at age 93, an apparent suicide. Ten years ago: Federal investigators joined industry teams in the search for clues into what triggered the country’s worst power blackout in the Midwest and Northeast as the Bush administration promised to get answers and address whatever problem was found. Insurgents attacked a police station in Afghanistan, killing some two dozen people. Five years ago: At the Beijing Olympics, Michael Phelps and three teammates won the 400meter medley relay for Phelps’ eighth gold medal. In tennis, Venus and Serena Williams defeated Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain in women’s doubles; Rafael Nadal defeated Fernando Gonzalez of Chile in the men’s singles; Elena Dementieva defeated fellow Russian Dinara Safina in the women’s singles. Matamoros, Mexico, pitcher Jesus Sauceda had the fifth perfect game in Little League World Series history as he struck out all 12 batters in a 12-0 win over Emilia, Italy.

Partying teens get stuck FALCONER, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say four teenagers were apparently partying in a former law office in western New York when they got trapped for several hours in a walk-in vault. Police say they received a call around 1 a.m. Friday from a person reporting that four people were stuck inside the vault in the village of Falconer, 60 miles south of Buffalo. Rescue crews and a locksmith went to the building. The locksmith freed the teens, ages 18 and 19, after about four hours. Police say all four were checked out at a hospital. Officials say the teens had permission to be inside the building. Authorities say they found a large quantity of alcohol and some marijuana on the premises, and charges are pending against the four.

Rescued teen taking things day at a time By ELLIOT SPAGAT and JULIE WATSON Associated Press

LAKESIDE, Calif. — The father of a 16-year-old girl said she is taking things one day at a time after FBI agents killed a longtime family friend suspected of torturing and killing her mother and brother and escaping with her to the Idaho wilderness. “Right now, she’s with her family and, of course, with some friends, and she’s just happy to be here,” Brett Anderson told reporters outside a restaurant where his daughter Hannah got a warm welcome home reception on Thursday, five days after her ordeal ended. She was mobbed by reporters as she entered and left the eatery that hosted an all-day fundraiser. News crews were told to wait outside while Hannah and her father stayed for hours. She did not make a statement. “I don’t know what I want to say. I just want to give her a hug,” said Alyssa Haugum, a classmate of Hannah’s in Lakeside, an east San Diego suburb of 54,000 people. Firefighters found the body of Christina Anderson, 44, near a crowbar and what appeared to be blood next to her head. James Lee DiMaggio is believed to have shot and killed their family dog, found

under a sleeping bag in the garage with blood close to its head. Investigators found 8-year-old Ethan’s body as they sifted through rubble. DiMaggio “tortured and killed” the mother and son, San Diego County Sheriff ’s Detective Darren Perata wrote, offering no elaboration, in warrants released Wednesday. Investigators who searched DiMaggio’s home found letters from Hannah, an incendiary device, handcuff boxes, a handwritten note, a Yosemite camping guide, two used condoms and “arson wire,” according to one warrant, which does not elaborate on the content of letters or nature of the devices. Jan Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department, declined to comment on the content of Hannah’s letters. “As to the other items, I believe they rather stand on their own and clearly elevated the need to find her as soon as possible,” she wrote in an email. The warrants say DiMaggio and Hannah exchanged about 13 phone calls before she was picked up from cheerleading practice Aug. 4, hours before firefighters found DiMaggio’s burning garage in Boulevard, a rural town 65 miles east of San Diego. They do not indicate the time, dura-

tion or nature of the calls. Caldwell has said they may have been discussing pickup times. San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore has been adamant that Hannah was an unwilling victim from start to finish. “I can’t make it any clearer,” he said at a news conference Monday. DiMaggio was extraordinarily close to both children, driving Hannah to gymnastics meets and Ethan to football practice. The warrants say the former telecommunications technician took Hannah on multi-day trips, most recently to Malibu and Hollywood. Asked on her social media account this week if she would have preferred DiMaggio got a lifetime prison sentence instead of being killed, she said, “He deserved what he got.” The account was disabled but there were postings on an Instagram account linked to Hannah’s now-disabled ask. fm page. “Dad is not taking this very well,” she wrote late Wednesday. “None of us are but please watch over him. I’m all he’s got left. Even though your gone we are still a team. Love and miss you. “ ——— Spagat reported from San Diego.

Judge: Manning’s actions were ‘heedless’ By DAVID DISHNEAU and PAULINE JELINEK Associated Press

FORT MEADE, Md. — The enormous leak of classified information engineered by Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was “heedless” and “imminently dangerous to others,” a military judge said Friday in a document explaining why she found him guilty of 20 counts, including six violations of the federal Espionage Act. Army Col. Denise Lind released her legal rationale, or “special findings,” as the sentencing phase of Manning’s court-martial neared its end. Lawyers will make closing arguments Monday, and Lind said she would announce the sentence as soon as Tuesday. Manning faces up to 90 years in prison for sending more than 700,000 military and diplomatic documents, plus some battlefield video, to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq in 2010. WikiLeaks published most of the material on its website. Lind wrote in the 10-page document that Manning’s actions were wanton and reckless.

“Pfc. Manning’s conduct was of a heedless nature that made it actually and imminently dangerous to others,” she wrote. The rules for special findings require a written rationale only for guilty verdicts. Therefore, Lind provided no explanation for her decision to acquit Manning of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy. To have won a conviction on that

charge, prosecutors would have had to prove that Manning knew the information he leaked would be seen by al-Qaida members. On the espionage convictions, for transmitting defense information, Lind found that the leaked material was both potentially damaging to the United States and “closely held,” meaning it had been classified by the appropriate authorities and

remained classified at the time it was leaked. The defense had argued that much of the information Manning leaked either contained no damaging information or was already publicly known. The lone computer fraud count on which Manning was convicted hinged on whether he knowingly exceeded his authorized access on a classified government network when he used his workplace computer to save the State Department cables to a CD so he could use his personal computer to transmit them to WikiLeaks. The defense had argued that Manning was authorized to view the cables as part of his job, and that there was no prohibition on downloading or saving them. Prosecutors had argued that Manning had no authority to access such a wide range of cables since his job was narrowly focused on the threat from Shia Muslims in Iraq. Lind drew a fine line in her legal reasoning. She said the phrase “exceeds authorized access” means Manning used the computer with authorization, and then used that access to obtain information he wasn’t entitled to obtain.

Ferry sinks in collision in Philippines; 24 dead By TERESA CEROJANO

Speaking by telephone from Cebu, Azcuna said they were still searching the waters for survivors. He also said authorities were still trying to determine the actual

number of people on board. In a statement, ferry owner 2Go said the roll-on-roll-off ship had 723 passengers and 118 crew or a total of 841 people aboard

and carried 104 20-foot (6-meter) steel containers. It said the ferry “was reportedly hit” by the cargo vessel “resulting in major damage that led to its sinking.” Azcuna said the coast guard was still focused on rescue off Cebu, 570 kilometers (350 miles) south of Manila, and will begin investigations later. Navy divers told reporters at the scene of the collision, about 2 kilometers from the shore, that they saw several dead bodies still underwater. Danny Palmero, a former fisherman, said he was with friends who responded to the ferry’s distress call and rescued seven people on their motorized outrigger canoe. “I saw many flares being shot,” he said by telephone. “As a former nautical student, I knew it was a distress signal.”

ernment has acknowledged the existence of the super-secret, 8,000-square-mile installation. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush referred to the “location near Groom Lake” in insisting on continued secrecy, and other government references date to the 1960s. But Richelson, as well as those who are convinced “the truth is out there,” are taking the document as a sign of loosening secrecy about the government’s activities in the Nevada desert. The site is known as Area 51 among UFO aficionados because that was the base’s designation on old Nevada test site maps. The CIA history reveals that officials renamed it “Paradise Ranch” to try to lure skilled workers, who can still be seen over Las Vegas flying to and from the site on unmarked planes. Beginning with the U-2 in the 1950s, the base has been

the testing ground for a host of top-secret aircraft, including the SR-71 Blackbird, F-117A stealth fighter and B-2 stealth bomber. Some believe the base’s Strangelovian hangars also contain alien vehicles, evidence from the “Roswell incident” — the alleged 1947 crash of a UFO in New Mexico — and extraterrestrial corpses. The CIA history mentions an “unexpected side effect” of the high-flying planes: “a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects.” The report notes that the U-2 and Oxcart planes, which flew higher than civilians believed possible, accounted for half of UFO sightings during the 1950s and ’60s. A likely story, said Stanton Friedman, a self-described Ufologist from Canada. “The notion that the U-2 explains most sightings at that time is utter rot and baloney,” he said. “Can the U-2 sit still

in the sky? Make right-angle turns in the middle of the sky? Take off from nothing? The U-2 can’t do any of those things.” Even for those who do not believe in UFOs, the mystery surrounding the site — situated about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, across miles of desert speckled with Joshua trees and sagebrush — has been a boon. One Nevada bicycle event company produces an “X Rides” event that incorporates mountain biking near a certain heavily guarded patch of Nevada desert. Las Vegas’ minor league baseball team is called “the 51s.” Small-town restaurants along State Route 375, officially designated the Extraterrestrial Highway, sell souvenir T-shirts to tourists making their way to the boundary of Area 51, which consists of a no-trespassing sign, a surveillance camera and an armed guard on a hill.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — A ferry with more than 800 people aboard sank near the central Philippine port of Cebu after colliding with a cargo vessel, killing at least 24 people. Hundreds of others were rescued, the coast guard said Saturday. Dozens were still missing, but authorities could not give an official figure. The captain of the ferry MV Thomas Aquinas ordered the ship abandoned after it began listing and then sank after the collision late Friday, coast guard officer Joy Villegas said. Cebu coast guard chief, Cmdr. Weniel Azcuna, said 24 people, including children, were confirmed dead and 629 passengers had been rescued by early Saturday.

A Filipino trooper explains how he survived as their ship sank in Cebu, central Philippines late Friday. Passenger ferry MV Thomas Aquinas with nearly 700 people aboard sank near the central Philippine port of Cebu on Friday night after colliding with a cargo vessel, and a survivor said he saw bodies in the sea.

CIA From page 1 planes, though none of them are saucer-shaped. George Washington University’s National Security Archive used a public records request to obtain the CIA history of one of Area 51’s most secret Cold War projects, the U-2 spy plane program. National Security Archive senior fellow Jeffrey Richelson first reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of the country’s most mysterious military base had been redacted. So he requested the history again in 2005, hoping for more information. Sure enough, he received a version a few weeks ago with the mentions of Area 51 restored. The report is unlikely to stop the conspiracy theorists. The 407-page document still contains many redactions, and who’s to say those missing sections don’t involve little green men? It’s not the first time the gov-

Two Ohio agriculture dealers form alliance BROADVIEW HEIGHTS — Ken Prenger, sales manager, Prenger Implement Store Inc. of Minster, and Kelly Love, vice president of Ohio Ag Equipment with locations in Upper Sandusky, Washington Court House, Napoleon and Millersburg, announce a sales and service alliance for west central Ohio. The initial focus of the alliance will provide the Prenger organization the ability to meet their

agricultural customers’ needs for material handling products with Caterpillar Skid Steer Loaders, Mini Hydraulic Excavators, Small Wheel Loaders and Telehandlers. Initially, Prenger Implement will have on hand low-hour rental return machines that have been utilized by Ohio CAT’s Cat Rental Stores throughout the state. New Caterpillar products will be available by year-end. The agreement also provides both organizations access to

each other’s used machine inventories. “This provision of the alliance will facilitate improved opportunities for both Ohio Ag Equipment and Prenger Implement with immediate access to a larger variety of used products located across Ohio,” Love said. Prenger said, “We have needed and wanted a skid steer line for some time and now have a product line with the quality, durabil-

ity and reliability that will meet our customers’ requirements. We are confident the Cat product with the backing of Ohio Ag Equipment/Ohio CAT will position us to become the preferred supplier in the community.” Ken Taylor, president of Ohio CAT, which is the parent company of Ohio Ag Equipment, said he is thrilled with the formation of this new alliance. “Over the past 10 years, we’ve been growing our presence in

Ohio’s agricultural sector, and this new alliance with Prenger Implement brings us and our light equipment offerings closer to the customer,” Taylor said. “In addition,” he went on to say, “We’re excited about partnering with the Prenger family and their employees in bringing customers ‘the best products, the best support, and the best value possible,’ which has been Prenger Implement’s motto for a very long time.”

The official mid-2013 production figures for Pennsylvania and West Virginia haven’t been released yet by those states, but Bentek’s figures are considered very reliable by government and industry sources.

Marcellus gas is “actually starting to displace” production from the Gulf of Mexico in places, Oswald said. For example, when

serious shale drilling started in Pennsylvania in 2008, output barely registered on a national level, and most of the Northeast relied on natural gas that was being pumped from the Gulf of Mexico or from Canada through a network of pipelines. Now, Marcellus gas is supplying the Pennsylvania and Northeast markets, and it’s grown to be the nation’s most productive gas field. Bentek expects a surplus will soon start flowing to the South and Midwest. Tom Murphy, a director of the Penn State University Marcellus Center for Research & Outreach, said that while the number of drilling rigs operating in Pennsylvania has declined, companies have learned to drill more efficiently, “so fewer rigs are drilling more wells.” The Marcellus Shale is a gas-rich formation deep underground that extends across Pennsylvania, West

CLEVELAND (AP) — A government inspector general says President Barack Obama’s administration played a key role in the General Motors bankruptcy in 2009 as pensions were cut for salaried Delphi Corp. retirees but not unionized workers and retirees of the supplier.

Virginia, New York, Ohio and Maryland, but most of the production is in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Production from West Virginia is also on track to increase by about 50 percent this year, according to Bentek. Ohio shale gas production is in its beginning stages but is expected to grow substantially in 2014 and 2015. In 2011 and 2012, there was a highly publicized debate over the potential of the Marcellus Shale, with some contending the industry had exaggerated the numbers. But the actual production figures have mostly put that debate to rest. Murphy believes there is still a backlog of about 2,000 wells that have already been drilled but aren’t hooked up to pipelines for production yet. Others estimate the backlog at 1,000 wells, but in either case, it’s adding to the production surge.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Marcellus Shale natural gas production is rising even faster this year than energy experts had predicted, and that’s having a national impact on energy. Bentek, a Colorado company that analyzes energy trends, said 2013 production in Pennsylvania and West Virginia is up about 50 percent compared with last year. Figures for the pipelines that take gas out of the Marcellus show that in the first six months of the year, Pennsylvania produced about 1.5 trillion cubic feet of gas, with projections for a year-end total of about 3.2 trillion cubic feet. That yearly number translates into the equiva-

willful, meaning they were committed with intentional, knowing or voluntary disregard for the law or indifference to employee safety. OSHA officials said Republic would remain in OSHA’s Severe Violator Enforcement Program for employers that commit willful violations, repeat violations or fail to fix hazards after being cited. Republic was placed in the program in 2011. The designation allows OSHA to inspect any of Republic’s facilities if there are reasonable grounds to believe similar violations are occurring. The company employs 2,500 workers nationwide, and 600 at the Canton plant.

takes these allegations seriously. We are currently reviewing the alleged citation items to determine an appropriate course of action.” Republic has 15 days to contest the penalties. OSHA said it inspected the plant after receiving a formal complaint from the United Steelworkers Union, which alleged inadequate safeguards against falls, and other unsafe practices in the plant’s melt shop. OSHA also cited the company for tripping hazards, lack of protective equipment for employees working around the furnace and using electrical panels not suitable for wet locations. Fifteen of the 24 violations were judged

issues at its other facilities. “Republic Steel has a long history of OSHA violations and disregard for employee safety and health,” said David Michaels, assistant secretary of Labor for occupational safety and health. He called it “unacceptable” that the company has not taken more effective steps to improve safety at the Canton plant, particularly in light of the 2012 settlement. In an emailed statement late Tuesday, Chad McClimans, Republic Steel’s director of environment, health and safety, said the company was “committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and

The report issued Thursday stopped short of saying the administration’s role was right or wrong. It made no recommendations. About 20,000 Delphi salaried retirees — nearly half in Ohio — saw their pensions cut by as much as 70 percent during GM’s bankruptcy. The report says administration officials indicated they acted quickly to avoid GM’s failure. The Tre a s u r y Department, which oversaw the president’s auto task force, took issue with the IG report. Assistant Treasury Secretary Timothy Massad said the pension decision was made by GM and was “driven by sound commercial reasons.” Den Black with the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association said the report made clear something salaried retirees had long suspected. “The administration and the Treasury and the Auto Task Force were clearly the drivers relative to the decisions made as the 40-day GM bankruptcy played out,” he said.

New car, new chief

Sidney Daily News | Luke Gronneberg

New Bremen Village Administrator Wayne York takes a photo recently of the new New Bremen Police Chief Michael Skinner (left) taking the keys to the 2013 Dodge Charger parked behind him from former New Bremen Police Chief Doug Harrod, who ordered the new car while he was still chief. The drive next to the New Bremen Municipal Center was also renamed Harrod’s Way in honor of Harrod, who worked as police chief from 1980 to 2013. Standing behind the new car is the New Bremen Police force. The Charger was chosen to replace the Crown Victoria, which is no longer in production and was the vehicle of choice for law enforcement across the U.S. for years.

Your Horoscope

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Aug. 19, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A friend might surprise you today, especially in a group setting. Alternatively, you might meet a real character today. (Don’t get hung up on financial responsibilities.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect the unexpected to come out of the mouths of bosses, parents and VIPs. (“Whaaat?”) Don’t overreact. Don’t quit your day job. Don’t let others get you down. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Sudden opportunities to travel might fall into your lap today. Or these unexpected opportunities could relate to higher education, publishing and the media. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Stay in touch with your bank account today, because unexpected events are occurring everywhere — and for your sign, they might affect you financially. Make sure you know what’s happening. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Someone close to you might say or do something that shocks you today. Possibly, someone wants more freedom in the relationship. Just be cool. Everything will settle down. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Computer crashes, canceled appointments, staff shortages and power outages are some reasons why your workday will be interrupted. Just accept this and remain flexible. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

A variety of strange bikes take part in the Bremenfest Parade Aug. 11 representing The Bicycle Museum of America.

This is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids or children in your care, so be extra-vigilant. Social occasions (including sports) might be canceled or changed in some way. Have a plan B. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your home routine will be interrupted. Small appliances might break down, or minor breakages could occur. Female relatives could erupt. But you can handle all this, right? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Pay attention to everything you say and do, because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign. Relax. Take a deep breath. Be mindful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep an eye on your money today, because you might find money, or you might lose money. Similarly, something you own might be broken, lost or stolen. Be alert! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You have strong feelings of independence today. The upside is that you can be inventive, original and spontaneous. The downside is that you can be rebellious and lippy. (Oops.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You feel restless today. Don’t let a teacher or someone older discourage you in your travel plans or your efforts to learn something. Believe in your dreams, and go after them. YOU BORN TODAY You project self-confidence and have a strong aura. (But you are private and tend to keep information about yourself hidden.) You understand human nature and know how to rally the troops if you need to. You are strongly ambitious, and you value truth. You know how to use an opportunity to your advantage. This year will be highly social and will benefit all of your relationships. Yay! Birthdate of: Kyra Sedgwick, actress; Adam Arkin, actor; Jonathan Frakes, actor/director.

best. DR. WALLACE: I met a really cute guy at a party, and we seemed to hit it off real well. He asked me for my telephone number, and I gave it to him. Last night he called, and we talked for about 15 minutes. I thought he might be a tiny bit shy, so I asked him if he was going to ask me out. I was shocked (and embarrassed) when he said, no, because he was going steady with another girl. I asked him why he was calling me, and he said he wanted to get to know me better just in case he and his girlfriend broke up. I called him a jerk and told him not to call me anymore. Then

and restaurant combination foods are a real problem. Is there a better, more complete food list out there? Is this something new? Thanks for any comments for those of us who suffer with extreme bloating! — Anon. ANSWER: The low-FODMAP diet is designed to be a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome, for symptoms of nausea, bloating and bowel changes. “FODMAP” stands for “fermentable oligo, di- and monosaccharides and polyols.” The theory is that these foods are poorly absorbed, tend to have laxative effects and are fermented by bacteria, causing gas and distention. It’s a very compelling theory and makes sense with what I have seen in clinical practice, as well as the many letter writers who have asked me to warn others of the dangers of polyols, such as mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol and others. Recent studies on this diet shows that up to twothirds of people are helped by reducing the overall content of foods high in FODMAPs. Examples of these foods, and suggestions for alternatives,

can be found at http://ibs. od/ibsfood/a/ The -FODMAP-Diet .htm. However, the author states — and I quite agree — that a licensed nutritionist can be essential in making sure the dietary changes are right for you. I am a little surprised your gastroenterologist did not suggest this. DR. ROACH WRITES: Back in May, I wrote about A.M., who had hand tremors. A reader wrote to tell me that her tremors improved dramatically after stopping the prescription medication bupropion. A.M. discussed this with her doctor, tried going off her bupropion, and her tremor is much improved. I wanted to take the opportunity to thank the readers who write in with their suggestions. Sometimes I haven’t heard of them, and sometimes they work.

Aug. 17, 1913 The district passenger agent for the C.H. & D. railroad was in Sidney today to confer with J.E. Russell, secretary of the fair board, to see if arrangements could be made to have the 17th infantry regiment, of the U.S. Army, stop in Sidney for a day and maneuver in the vicinity of the fairgrounds. The regiment has been on duty at Camp Perry and is planning to return to its base at Ft. McPherson, Ga. The war department desires the regiment make stops on their way home and Sidney may be designated as one of the stopping places. nnn To succeed Dr. M.F. Hussey, of this city, who was recently appointed superintendent of the Lima State Hospital, Dr. William L. Neville, of Lima, was named to the board of trustees of the institution. Dr. Hussey will also take over the duties of clerk of the commission, filling the vacancy created by the resignation of J. Howard Secreat. The office of the commission will remain in Lima at the hospital grounds.

Aug. 17, 1938 The First Mutual Savings and Loan Association will move into new quarters in its own building, two doors south of the present location on the west side of the public square. The date set for making the change in location is Sept. 1. This will mark the first change in location by the association since its organization in 1922. Remodeling and redecorating of the interior of the building has been going on for the past several weeks.

Aug. 17, 1963 William L. Flinn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Flinn of R.R. 1, Houston, recently left for the Rural Sociological Society meetings which will be held at San Fernando Valley State College

in Northridge, California from Aug. 24 to 26. Flinn, who is a member of the faculty in the Department of Economics and Sociology at the Ohio State University, will present a paper in the afternoon session on the 26th. The paper is entitled “Community Norms in Predicting Innovativeness.”

Aug. 17, 1988 It’s apparently official. Vandalia will not have any fall sports this year as school board members rejected a proposal from some concerned citizens in that community, because the proposal involved only sports, and not all extra-curricular activities. Vandalia voters recently turned down a 6-mill additional operating levy, forcing school officials to cancel all fall sports programs, the marching band and all academic clubs and organizations. That, along with some teaching positions that won’t be filled, is expected to save the school $750,000. nnn Taking part in a pizza party at Amos Memorial Public Library Friday evening are Jessica Tatum, 9, and Amanda, 7, and Kristi, 9, Chiles. The party was held for approximately 130 children who completed the library’s summer reading program which used the theme of “Where the Wild Things Are.” To attend the party, the children in grades 2-6, were required to read 30 books. A movie was also shown. nnn These news items from past issues of the Sidney Daily News are compiled by the Shelby County Historical Society (498-1653) as a public service to the community.

tionship with my boyfriend, “Carey,” for four years. We have discussed our future and have agreed that we want to get married and start a family soon. As a child, I always dreamed of a big, fancy wedding. Carey, on the other hand, says he doesn’t want one. He feels it would be a waste of money. After a lot of discussion, we decided to compromise and have a courthouse wedding followed by a small, simple reception. My biggest issue is he insists we don’t need rings, and he refuses to get me one. Although I have explained that a ring would symbolize our love and life together, and it would mean a great deal to me personally, he won’t budge. Now I’m beginning to doubt whether I want to marry him. What should I do? Am I being superficial? — CONFUSED ABOUT MARRIAGE DEAR CONFUSED: I don’t think that wanting a wedding ring is superficial.

It’s normal. Furthermore, if you have any doubts about marrying this young man, you should put the wedding on hold until the two of you have had premarital counseling. Arguments about how money should be spent have ruined marriages, and it appears the two of you are planets apart on this important issue. DEAR ABBY: What is proper when opening gift cards with money enclosed? My family has made it a habit for the nieces to open their cards in front of everyone. I feel it should be done in private. — UNCOMFORTABLE IN PENNSYLVANIA D E A R U N C O M F O RTA B L E : Opening the card is fine. Reading the sentiments inside is also perfectly acceptable. But to reveal the amount of the check or money enclosed is a no-no. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Odds and Ends

Students return to school in Oklahoma after tornado MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Students who lost classmates in an Oklahoma tornado three months ago have returned to school, eager to reunite with friends but worried about the next storm. The Briarwood and Plaza Towers elementary schools were destroyed when an EF5 twister hit Moore on May 20. Two dozen people died, including seven students at the Plaza Towers school. Parents walked many

of their children to classes at a temporary location Friday and cried as they walked away. One parent, Julie Lewis, said her son Zack wanted to know who would pick him up from school the next time the weather turns bad. Cam’ron Richardson, a new fourth-grader, had trouble sleeping because a storm swept through the area overnight. He carries an Associated Press photo of his rescue on his cellphone.


Sidney Daily News, Saturday, August 17, 2013












For Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be aware that private details about your personal life might be made public today, especially to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Need to do some damage control? TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You hunger for change. Well, why not? Shake it up a little. Go someplace you've never been before. (But be patient with others in order to avoid dust-ups today.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You're focused on finances today; however, this afternoon is a poor time to spend money. Disputes about possessions, cash flow and who owns what might arise. Stay chill. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today the Moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to cooperate with others. Be tolerant and prepare to compromise. This is no biggie. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) No matter what happens today, you're keen to stay on top of things. Don't be a perfectionist about this, because this afternoon, life will be loosey-goosey. Be gracious if this happens. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a playful, fun-loving day! Nevertheless, be patient with romantic partners or children today because you might be at odds with someone. Keep smiling. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You'll enjoy a chance to cocoon at home today. Nevertheless, brief arguments with female family members might arise. If you're diplomatic, this won't be a problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You're intense about communicating with others today. You have something you want to say. Be aware that your plans might take a detour that requires patience and flexibility. SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your focus is on finances today. Avoid disputes with someone about loans, inheritances and shared property. Postpone important decisions until tomorrow. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You're in the driver's seat today because the Moon is in your sign. However, it also opposes Mars, which might trigger heated discussions with others. Keep your head down and your powder dry. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You prefer a mellow day today. You need privacy and a chance to work alone or behind the scenes. Don't get caught up in other people's dramas. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Enjoy meeting with others, especially in group situations. Avoid intense competition with someone, because it's not going to go anywhere. Step back, and be generous and understanding about it. YOU BORN TODAY You value the knowledge gained through experience. You work hard to manifest your personal vision of life. Although you can appear socially flamboyant at times, you are serious and philosophical. You function well as a leader and see challenges as an opportunity for success. This year a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as whatever occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: Madeleine Stowe, actress; Christian Slater, actor; Nicole Krauss, author.

Sidney school board to consider district goals The Sidney City Board of Education will consider adopting school district goals when it meets Monday at 7 p.m. in the board office. The district goals for the 2013-14 school year are: • Pass a school levy to provide the needed resources to replace the expiring 9.9-mill property and expired 0.8-mill permanent improvement levy.

• Successful implementation of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System and the Ohio Principal Evaluation System. • Address areas of weakness on the Ohio School Report Card for Sidney City Schools. • Maintain financial stability for the school district. In other business, the board will act on personnel matters, including resignations, employment of

an assistant cook and custodians, Kendra Ayton as an auxiliary services part-time teacher, Jodi Danzig as a seventh- and eighthgrade cheer coach, and Nathan Christian as a volunteer eighthgrade football coach. The board also will consider approval of bus stops and a bus maintenance contract, and purchase of replacement food service equipment.

Bridge work to close road BOE to The Shelby County Highway Department will begin the replacement of a concrete bridge on Lock Two Road on Wednesday, according to County Engineer Bob Geuy.

Lock Two Road will be closed to traffic between Ohio 29 and Roettger Road beginning on that date. The bridge replacement project will take approximately four weeks to complete.

NE Ohio man arraigned in murder plot against wife PAINESVILLE (AP) — A northeast Ohio man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he plotted with a romantically involved teenage foster daughter to kill his wife. A judge in Lake County set $5 million bond Friday for 43-year-old Kevin Knoefel, of Willoughby Hills. He pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and complicity to

aggravated murder. His 41-year-old wife, Lisa, was found stabbed to death in their home last November. Their 18-year-old foster daughter has been charged with murder. The indictment says Knoefel and the teen were romantically involved. He’s charged with sexual battery stemming from his role as a foster father.

Dillehay inducted into Wall of Honor FORT LORAMIE — The Fort Loramie Education Foundation (FLEF) announced the Fort Loramie Schools Wall of Honor Induction Ceremony will take place on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. The event will be held in the Fort Loramie High School Gymnasium with a reception immediately following in the cafeteria. The individuals being inducted into the Wall of Honor at this year’s ceremony are James Wehrman, Paul Bollheimer, James Dillehay and Sister Marge Eilerman OSF. The public is invited and encouraged to attend this upcoming event. Mark the date and time and join us for this tribute to commemorate our inductees. The purpose of the Wall of Honor is to recognize and honor those persons living or deceased, who, through their performance, achievements and contributions, reflect credit on the Fort Loramie Local Schools, so that presentday students may find identity with the past and establish goals for the future. The Wall of Honor will reinforce and enhance a positive image inside and outside of the Fort Loramie school district, as it also strives to foster an increased sense of pride among students, faculty, administration, alumni and residents. FLEF has worked in collaboration with Studio Eleven Promotional Products/Vivid MFG Group on the Wall of Honor display. The Wall of Honor display at the Junior/ Senior High School is an everlasting

visual reminder of the dedication the inductees have provided to the school district, community and world. James I. Dillehay James L. Dillehay, educator and administrator at Fort Loramie Schools from 1929 through 1954, was highly respected, not only by the students, staff and community of Fort Loramie, but also by many throughout the surrounding area for his support of education and his leadership qualities. D i l l e h a y a t t e n d e d Crooksville High School, Crooksville, grad- Dillehay uating in 1923. He received his college degree from Ohio University. He also studied at Bowling Green State University, Muskingum College and Miami University. He began his teaching career in Perry County in 1924. He came to Fort Loramie as a teacher and coach in 1929. He was a teacher of social sciences and industrial arts. Through the years Dillehay also successfully coached track, basketball, and championship baseball teams. He was Fort Loramie High School’s first basketball coach. Following his years as a teacher at the school, he served several years as principal, and in 1936 was named superintendent, serving in that capacity until his untimely death in 1954. Dillehay was a strong supporter of school sports. Besides his encouragement of interscholastic sports in

the area, he was very much in favor of intramural sports. At Fort Loramie High School, he created a tradition called the “Interclass Tournament,” wherein each of the four grades in high school would form a boys basketball team and a girls volleyball team. These teams would compete against each other, the winner receiving a rotating trophy. Zach Crusey, longtime sports editor of the Sidney Daily News, had this to say about Dillehay’s creation: “What was so distinguishing about Jim’s tournament idea was the fact that it not only paid special tribute to the winners, but also helped the vanquished contenders to learn to ‘take it’ by a special sequence in which the losers conceded their respective cause with good grace.” Besides the traditional classes in the school’s curriculum, Dillehay also very much supported the music and agriculture departments. Another unique program was created by the Fort Loramie faculty under the direction of Dillehay. Each faculty member selected his or her favorite poem to be put in a booklet. After the booklet was printed and given to the students, they were challenged to memorize the poems. A certificate was given to the students who completed the task. One of Dillehay’s greatest achievements was his ability to unite the school district after the consolidation of the

area’s one-room schools: Hopewell and Walkup (1950), and Sherman and St. Patrick (1954). Dillehay was active in many community and educational organizations. He was a member of St. Michael Catholic Church, the Holy Name Society, the Knights of St. John, the Fort Loramie Athletic Association, the Shelby County Teachers’ Association, and the Ohio Education Association. At one point, he served as president of the Shelby County Teachers’ Association and secretary of the Fort Loramie Athletic Association. He also served as the manager of the Shelby County Basketball Tournament. Dillehay participated in the National Defense Program in 1942. In 1947 he was given the Award of Merit from the American National Red Cross. James L. and his wife Mildred were the parents of four children: James A., Jack, Jean, and Jo Ann. James L. Dillehay touched many young lives. His leadership promoted scholarship, vocational guidance, student social responsibility, and athletic interest in the lives of many young adults. After Dillehay’s death in 1954, Zach Crusey gave the following tribute: “While Jim will be deeply missed by all who knew him for what he was, he left behind a beautiful endowment of fair play and Christian character that enshrine his unflagging efforts at Fort Loramie forever.”

Reds hold slim lead in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Todd Frazier had four runs batted in, and the Cincinnati Reds led the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 in the top of the ninth inning Friday night. The Reds were trying to overtake the St. Louis Cardinals and move into second place in the National League Central after the Cardinals lost 7-0 to the Cubs Friday. Frazier had a two-run single in the first, a solo home run in the fourth, and a two-out run-scoring single in the top of the seventh to break a 5-5 deadlock. Chris Heisey had two hits and two RBIs. After the Brewers took a 4-2 lead, Frazier cut it to 4-3 with his homer, and Heisey then smacked a two-run homer in the fifth to put the Reds on top. Pirates 6, D-backs 2 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jose Tabata hit a two-run homer, rookie Gerrit Cole pitched six solid innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-2 on Friday night. Tabata’s drive was his fourth of the season and came off J.J.

Putz in the eighth inning, putting the NL Central-leading Pirates ahead by four runs. Tabata connected a day after he came off the bench and had three hits in a 12-inning loss at St. Louis. Cole (6-5) was pitching on eight days of rest. He had his previous turn in the rotation skipped in part to allow veteran A.J. Burnett to pitch Thursday against the Cardinals and also to get extra rest. The 22-year-old Cole has pitched 140 innings between the major leagues and minor leagues in his second major league season. The right-hander gave up two runs and five hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Cubs 7, Cards 0 CHICAGO (AP) — In his second game with the Chicago Cubs, Jake Arrieta showed exactly why they’re putting him in the rotation for the rest of the season. The hard-throwing righthander dominated the potent St. Louis Cardinals lineup for seven innings to lead Chicago to a 7-0 victory Friday. “That’s the kind of stuff

the power arms can do when they’re throwing strikes and making pitches and you have a 91 mph cutter, slider or whatever you want to call it,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “He made some really good pitches in some key situations of counts. When you thought you might be losing good hitters, he made some key pitches on the black at 95, 96 mph.” Arrieta (1-0) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out seven. After yielding an infield single to Carlos Beltran in the second, he got rookie Kolten Wong to ground into a double play. That started a streak of 13 straight outs (including five strikeouts) until Arrieta walked St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook (7-8) in the sixth. The next batter, Matt Carpenter, also walked to give the Cardinals their first threat of the game. But Jon Jay grounded into a fielder’s choice and Matt Holiday struck out looking to end the inning. In his only other start with Chicago, Arrieta allowed one run and two hits in six innings July 30 against Milwaukee.

Minster golfers win 3rd tourney this week

John Isner celebrates after upsetting top seeded Novak Djokovic, from Serbia, 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-5, in a quarterfinal match at the Western & Southern Open tennis tournament Friday in Mason, Ohio. Associated Press

Nadal tops Federer, Djokovic upset at Cincy MASON, Ohio (AP) — The vintage rematch ended with Rafael Nadal pumping his arms after a perfect forehand. He was a little bit better than old nemesis Roger Federer once again. Nadal advanced to the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open with a 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 win over Federer on Friday night, a vintage rematch that reinforced their head-to-head standings for now. Nadal improved to 21-10 against his top rival, including wins all of their three matches this year. A close match came down to a few points, and Nadal got most of them. Their first meeting in Cincinnati was vintage and highlighted a day of upsets in the men’s bracket. No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 2 Andy Murray lost in the quarterfinals. No. 1 Serena Williams moved on in the women’s bracket. Nadal moves on, too, playing Tomas Berdych in the semifinals. It’s been a summer of resur-

gence for the 27-year-old Spaniard. He missed the end of last season with a knee injury, but has gotten into one of the best surges of his career this season. He takes a career-best 51-3 mark into the semifinal, including a 14-1 against Top 10 opponents. It’s been a rough summer for Federer, who was beaten by a player ranked 116th in the world at Wimbledon. And that was just the start. The 32-yearold Swiss star kept getting upset and struggled with a sore back. He also changed rackets. Federer hoped that his annual visit to Cincinnati would help him repair his game. He’s won the tournament an unprecedented five times. As the week went along, his game got noticeably better. The quarterfinals match was as good as any in the tournament. Federer got the first break to go up 6-5 in the opening set and finished it off with a crosscourt backhand. Nadal got his first

break of the match on the final point of the second set to even it. He broke Federer again in the second game of the third set to take control. They moved each other around, anticipated shots, hit the lines and lobbed over each other’s heads, making one improbable shot after another while bringing fans to their feet. Federer fought off four match points before Nadal put it away. While Federer and Nadal rekindled a famous rivalry, the top-ranked player had another disappointment on Cincinnati’s fast, blue courts. It’s the only place that Djokovic can’t win. Top-ranked American John Isner ended his attempt to make ATP history on Friday, prevailing 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-5. Djokovic has never won in Cincinnati, where he’s lost in the finals four times, including last year to Federer. All he needs to do is hoist the winner’s trophy one time in Cincinnati to become the first player to win

all nine ATP Masters events. Wait until next year. Again. “It’s disappointing that I played this way,” Djokovic said. “For me, it’s very disappointing.” Isner reached the semifinals in Cincinnati for the first time, knocking off a No. 1 for only the second time in his career. His other No. 1 upset? He beat Djokovic at Indians Wells in the semifinals last year. “A fantastic win for me,” Isner said. “Certainly one of my greatest memories as a tennis player.” He’ll play seventh-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who advanced Friday by beating qualifier Dmitry Tursunov 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. Del Potro, who has a sore wrist and knee, is in the semifinals for the second straight year. Soon after Djokovic got knocked out, Murray was gone, too. He failed to convert a break point while losing 6-3, 6-4 to Berdych, who also beat him in the quarterfinals at Madrid.

Lehman netters win twice Lehman edged Tipp City in high school girls tennis Friday, 3-2. All the Lehman wins came in singles play, and all in three sets. Julia Harrelson won 1-6, 6-4, 6-2 over Hailey Winblad at first singles, Sarah Gravunder won 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 over Ali Merrick at second singles, and Diana

Gibson won 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (7-2) at third singles over Ladin Coning.

doubles 6-2, 6-1, with Olivia Zink and Hannah Zawada defeating Snyder and Kaitlin Gillman. At second doubles, Simpson and Hoersten won 6-7 (7-4), 6-1, 6-3 over Allyson Montero and Olivia Sellars. There was one junior varsity match, with Lehman’s Gillman and Snyder winning 6-0.

CELINA — Minster, Anna and Lehman all competed in the Celina Boys Golf Invitational and the Mercer County Elks Friday, and Minster came out on top, shooting a 318 for its third tournament win of the week.

Smiles all around as Bucks prepare for 2013 Rusty Miller Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Braxton Miller smiles when the prospect of a bowl trip comes up in the conversation. There was no midwinter journey to a sunnier, warmer spot for the Ohio State quarterback and his teammates a year ago, the result of NCAA sanctions stemming from the tattoo scandal that rocked the program two years ago. But now the Buckeyes are back in play, both in their conference and in the national picture. “We’ve got something to look forward to,” Miller said with a grin. There are a lot of smiles around the Buckeyes’ training camp these days. Smiles for the extra incentive of a major bowl trip and a shot at a national championship, not to mention just playing in the Big Ten’s title game. Coming off a 12-0 season in Urban Meyer’s first as coach, the Buckeyes have 14 starters back including nine on an explosive offense headed by Miller. The defense has fresh faces, but no one questions the talent level. Here are five things to look for with the Buckeyes in 2013: 1. CUT THE DISTRACTIONS: Two of the Buckeyes’ top players had legal problems this summer. Leading-scorer Carlos Hyde, also the team’s No. 2 rusher, has been suspended for the first three games after he was listed as a person of interest in an alleged assault of a woman at a Columbus bar. No charges were brought, but Hyde may be in Meyer’s doghouse for a while; he’s been suspended for the first three games. Star cornerback Bradley Roby was charged with misdemeanor assault after an incident with a bar bouncer in Bloomington, Ind. His case is still in the court system and he has been dropped to the second team and may face additional legal and team punishment. Meyer is not pleased. “In November we’re going to find out. ‘How’s your season going, coach?’ Well, if our leadership is good, and we

(know the) direction, I think we’ll be all right. You have distractions, we’ll be an average team,” he said. 2. HOLDING THE LINE: The offensive front returns four of five starters, so that’s a huge strength. All four starters on the defensive line are gone, however. Adolphus Washington, Joel Hale, Michael Bennett and Noah Spencer are the new starters. They were all bigtime recruits and there is talented depth behind them. “I don’t feel like we’re going to have a drop-off in play or talent,” D-line coach Mike Vrabel said. 3. MR. PLAYMAKER: Meyer said repeatedly a year ago that he didn’t have a game-breaking player who could turn a short run or pass into a long touchdown. After an injury-riddled year, Jordan Hall will fill the role Meyer created for Percy Harvin in his time at Florida.

There appear to be more candidates this year, with even a freshman — jet-quick Dontre Wilson — in the discussion. “We’re a faster team,” Meyer said. 4. MILLER’S TALE: The Buckeyes’ junior signal-caller had a breakthrough season a year ago, rushing for 1,271 yards and passing for 2,039 more for a combined 28 touchdowns. His improvement was the No. 1 reason why Ohio State was able to bounce back from a 6-7 mark the year before. Miller is on everybody’s watch list for the Heisman Trophy. “Last year I felt like I was a D-plus,” he said. “It’s unbelievable how far I came from last year.” 5. URBAN RENEWAL II: The Buckeyes seem positioned for a big season. The nonconference schedule isn’t exactly a minefield (Buffalo, San Diego State, California and Florida A&M) and three of the first four Big Ten games

are at home (Wisconsin, Iowa, Penn State). Yet only two games in October and one in November are at Ohio Stadium. The biggest test, as is almost annually the case, will come in the regular season-ending showdown at rival Michigan. Rod Smith, one of the guys who will get carries while Hyde watches from the sidelines, has a good feeling about what’s about to happen: “We were good last year. We went 12-0. But that was last year. This year we have some young guys who can really keep the momentum going. I’m pretty sure we’re even going to be 10 times better than last year.” nnn Predicted finish in conference: 1st in Big Ten’s Leaders Division. nnn Online: AP college football site:

Miller getting comfortable with being in the spotlight Rusty Miller Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Braxton Miller didn’t make any headlines during the offseason, at least not for anything he did off the field. The Ohio State quarterback has been under a microscope for the past two years, ever since he first took over as the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback. About the last thing he wants to do is be a focal point for what he does on his own time. “Oh, no. I try to stay out of all that stuff. I’m good on that,” he says, when asked if he learned anything from all the travails Heisman winner Johnny Manziel went through in his private life this past offseason. Miller is a celebrity, make no mistake about that. He’s downright famous around Ohio. But he has no intention of letting that change who he is. “I’ll just be the same guy I am right now, humble and talking to you guys,” he said, an average 20-year-old kid surrounded by maybe 100 reporters and photographers hanging on his every word. “When I leave here, I’m just like a regular person. I’ll just keep it levelheaded and go about my business when I go on the field. When I leave the field, I’m just this … guy.” The junior says he doesn’t mind all the attention, even though almost everyone would classify him as soft-spoken bordering on shy. At the very least, he’s grown used to being sought out by fans and media. It comes with putting up these numbers: 1,271 yards rushing, 2,039 passing and 28 total touchdowns. His teammates notice the change in him.

Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is seen during a practice recently in Columbus.

“That’s a really cool thing to see out of a guy that’s a superstar talent,” offensive lineman Jack Mewhort said. “I tell people all the time, his best quality is his humility. He’s not one of those guys who’ll be in the headlines. That’s really a cool thing as a quarterback, especially a guy of his caliber.” Now, with Ohio State on the cusp of what could be a memorable season, the junior is trying hard to be a more forceful leader. He may never be the guy who gets in a teammate’s grill and chews him out, but there’s no reason why he can’t get other players to produce just

Associated Press

because he plays so hard and wants to win so badly. It’s been a bit of a struggle to get Miller to be more assertive but he’s making progress. “He’s never been a bad guy, he’s always been a great guy,” coach Urban Meyer said. “But now he’s got a little confidence to him. I call (quarterback) the most unique position in sport, where you’re allowed to be a little introverted but you have to be able to lead. I don’t want to give him an A yet, but he’s pushing A work.” Miller’s position coach, Tom Herman,

has worked hard to try to help bring out Miller’s personality. “I think he was and still is and will continue to be a tough nut to crack,” Herman said. “He’s very guarded, as has been well documented. He’s a very introverted person. That’s not bad; none of that is bad. But it lends itself to a much tougher job for a guy like me to come in and say, ‘Hey, since high school I’m your fourth offensive coordinator in four years or whatever the case may be and, oh by the way, you’ve got to trust me 100 percent.’ “It takes time. Trust is earned, it’s not just given.” There is no question that his teammates respect Miller. They see how he applies himself, the extra time he puts in, how much he cares. “He’s more mature, he’s more of a leader, he’s more vocal,” running back Jordan Hall said. “He was one of our hardest workers in the offseason, too.” Miller is considered one a handful of top candidates for the Heisman Trophy. It wasn’t so long ago that the Ohio State signal-caller might have dreaded facing the prospect of the interminable national spotlight that comes with a Heisman campaign. Now, he may not welcome it, but at least he’s at ease. He trusts others to make it as effortless for him as possible. “Coach Meyer does a good job about that (Heisman talk),” Miller said. “He always tells us how good we are, how bad we did this day and blah blah blah. “We have to keep the momentum how it was last year, just keep that going. All the things that are going on outside of the (practice facility), you can’t pay any attention to that stuff.”

Browns-Lions: 5 things we learned CLEVELAND (AP) — This was a win that hurt the Browns. Quarterback Brandon Weeden’s second straight strong performance

turned into only a footnote Thursday night in a 24-6 victory over the Lions. Weeden, who has done everything to win

Cleveland’s starting job and is only waiting for coach Rob Chudzinski to make it official, threw two touchdown passes in the first half and starred

again. However, Weeden’s night was overshadowed by major injuries to Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo (bruised lung) and running back Dion Lewis (broken leg). The Browns also lost guard Jason Pinkston (sprained ankle), tight end Gary Barnidge (sprained shoulder) and kicker Brandon Bogotay (groin). The Lions didn’t have any excuses for playing poorly. They were without star wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who was rested with a bruised knee, but Detroit’s offense struggled for the second week in a row and coach Jim Schwartz was disappointed with his team’s effort as well as several costly penalties. Here are five things we learned while watching the Browns roll, more like limp, to their second impressive win of the preseason: 1. B RU I S E D, BATTERED: Mingo was kept overnight at The Cleveland Clinic as a precaution with the uncommon injury. The Browns initially said Mingo had hurt his ribs, but Chudzinski startled reporters with news that he had been hospitalized. It’s not known how long Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft, will be out. The injuries to Lewis and Pinkston could be costly. The versatile Lewis has had an impressive training camp and preseason, and the Browns are currently thin at running back after Montario

Hardesty underwent knee surgery. Pinkston, who survived blood clots in his lungs last season, was filling in for Shawn Lauvao. He had ankle surgery last week. Rookie Garrett Gilkey could be thrust into the starting lineup or the Browns may have to find an established guard. 2. LIONS AND FLAGS AND INFRACTIONS, OH MY: Detroit was whistled for eight penalties, including three personal fouls in the first half. Running back Reggie Bush lost his cool after a play and was called for unnecessary roughness, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Shu, no stranger to officials, was whistled for roughing Weeden. Lions coach Jim Schwartz was dismayed by the 15-yard infractions. “It doesn’t matter what happens out there,” he said. “Reggie got hit right in the back after a play, but that doesn’t give you any reason to put our offense in a worse position. Regardless of what you think of the call, it doesn’t matter. It gets called and we pay the price for it.” 3. WEEDEN SHINES: With every tight spiral, completion and touchdown, Weeden silences more critics and doubters. In two games, he’s 18 of 25 for 229 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Earlier this week, Chudzinski said the competition between Weeden and Jason Campbell was “still close.”

Sure, coach. “I was pleased,” Chudzinski said of Weeden. “He was efficient out there, accurate and had a couple of really nice throws where he was able to get it into some tight areas. He looked comfortable out there.” 4. BANKRUP T DETROIT: The Lions’ starting offense can’t find the end zone. In two games, Detroit’s first unit has managed only field goals. Without Johnson, the Lions didn’t have a downfield threat, but quarterback Matthew Stafford refused to use Megatron’s absence as an excuse and said the lack of scoring is becoming an issue. “We should be concerned a little bit,” said Stafford, who went 11 of 16 for 74 yards. “We are better than that. We have to hold ourselves accountable because we need to put points on the board.” 5. AIR JORDAN: A basketball walk-on at USC and friend of NBA All-Star Blake Griffin, Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is beginning to make a name for himself. He caught both of Weeden’s TD passes on throws into the end zone where his size — 6-foot5, 252 pounds — gave him a big advantage over smaller defensive backs. Cameron may thrive in coordinator Norv Turner’s tight end friendly offense. “I’m trying to get better every day,” said Cameron, who only had 20 catches last season. “This is definitely a work in progress.”
