Citing sarin use, US seeks Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; OK for action Bradley Klapper Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration geared up for the biggest foreign policy vote since the Iraq war by arguing Sunday that new physical evidence shows the Syrian government used sarin gas in a deadly August attack. The United States must respond with its credibility on the line, the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top diplomat said. Members of Congress, deadlocked on just about everything these days and still on summer break, expressed sharply diver-

gent opinions about whether to give President Barack Obama the go-ahead he requested to retaliate with military force against the Assad regime, and what turning down the commander in chief could mean for Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation. Presenting Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case for military action, Secretary of State John Kerry gave a series of interviews on Sunday news shows outlining the latest information the administration has received about the Aug. 21 attack in the Damascus suburbs that the U.S. says killed 1,429 civilians, including more than 400 children.

He said samples collected by first responders added to the growing body of proof that Syriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government launched a chemical weapons attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Samples of hair and blood have been tested and they have reported positive for signatures of sarin,â&#x20AC;? Kerry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each day that goes by, this case is even stronger. We know that the regime ordered this attack. We know they prepared for it. We know where the rockets came from. We know where they landed. We know the damage that was done afterwards.â&#x20AC;? Sarin, which affects the

nervous system and is toxic in liquid or gas form, can be delivered in missiles, bombs, rockets or artillery shells. The gas is outlawed under international rules of warfare. The reference to hair and blood samples were the first pieces of specific physiological evidence cited by any member of the administration, which previously spoke only about an unnamed nerve agent. Kerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assertion coincided with the beginning of a forceful administration appeal for congressional support, now that Obama has declared he See CONGRESS | 5

Grand Lake efforts successful because of cooperation Heather Rutz Civitas Media

LIMA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cooperation between the public and private sectors have made a difference at Grand Lake St. Marys, state officials said recently. Officials from Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Lake Erie Commission spoke in Lima as part of a daylong visit from state officials, including Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor and the Small Business

Advisory Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we had a problem, and we knew we needed an all-handson-deck approach,â&#x20AC;? said Craig Butler, assistant policy director for Gov. John Kasich. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a visionary issue for how we deal with the whole Great Lakes Watershed. It is a call to action we did not miss. We knew it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t something just government could do. It needed to be all our efforts in the public and private sector: Small business, farming, waste water treatment plants, failing septic systems. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue

that will take decades, if not a generation.â&#x20AC;? The lake has been plagued by toxic algae since federal officials discovered it there in 2009. Annual warnings have hurt the local tourism economy. The state is working to remove the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watershed in Distressâ&#x20AC;? designation from Grand Lake, said Karl Gebhardt, deputy director, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and is supporting new legislation that will mandate greater monitoring of fertilizer application and more detailed soil

testing. Taylor said an initiative she has headed since she took office, the Common Sense Initiative, has helped to make sure farming operations can remain viable while complying with new nutrient management regulations. The state remains in court with one of the 156 farmers in the watershed not yet complying with the regulations. The other 155 farmers now have nutrient management plans and must comply with manure threshold regulations.

Collaboration among the state, local officials, farmers and other business owners have resulted in a reduction of toxic algae there, and an improvement in a local economy that took a massive hit, Gebhardt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a pleasure to see the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup Regatta this past weekend,â&#x20AC;? Gebhardt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were engaged again, renting boats, feeling good, excited about the lake and the economy. The motto was the See LAKE | 11

Husband re-enacts high school date to surprise wife on anniversary Melanie Speicher

Ben Breinich remembers the first time he really noticed Amy Cavinder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We met at the (Sidney) theater when I was 13,â&#x20AC;? said Ben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started dating when I was 14.â&#x20AC;? Ben surprised his high school sweetheart, who later became his wife, on their 10th anniversary Friday with a special showing of their wedding at the Historic Sidney Theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We met at a showing of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lost in Space,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Ben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was with her friends and I was with my friends. She left her friends and I left my friends and we sat together.â&#x20AC;? And the rest, is a happily-ever# 29>9 n ?5/ <988/,/<1 after story.

LAKEVIEW — The public is invited to attend an open house to learn more about the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ current and future dredging operations at Indian Lake State Park. The open house will be held Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the multipurpose building located at the state park campground in Lakeview. Recent funding provided in House Bill 59, the state budget bill, will enable ODNR to purchase a combination dredge, which will be permanently located at Indian Lake. Visitors to the open house will be able to learn more about the new dredge equipment and related dredging technologies. Open house attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss the current dredge plan for Indian Lake with staff from Ohio State Parks as well as provide input for long-range dredge project planning. Dredging creates adequate water depths for safe boating navigation. The 5,800-acre Indian Lake is one of Ohio’s largest and most popular inland lakes. Each year, Indian Lake supports about 70,000 boat and personal watercraft excursions. The open house will also feature a variety of displays, including information on dredge machine operations; how the dredging process works; dredge material relocation areas; previous dredge accomplishments at Indian Lake and future dredge activities. Indian Lake State Park is located at 12774 State Route 235 North. For more information, contact the park office at 937-843-2717.

Ben decided he wanted to do something special and extraordinary for their 10th wedding anniversary. “Amy is the director of the Downtown Sidney Business Association and a board member of the Raise the Roof for the Arts. I had talked with Sarah Barr about using the theater to surprise Amy

on our anniversary.” The evening, he said, mimicked one of the many dates they went on during high school. “We always went to Lee’s Chinese when we were dating and then we’d go to the theater,” said Ben. And that’s what happened Friday night, but instead of seeing a Hollywood blockbuster, the couple were transported back to the day they were married as they watched their wedding on the big screen of the Historic Sidney Theatre. Amy was thrilled by her surprise anniversary gift.

“It was awesome,” she said when they went into the theater. “I was very surprised, too, which isn’t easy to do.” As they sat in the theater watching the wedding ceremony, Amy said she “was shocked while it was going on. I cried when it started playing.” She was also surprised because Ben was able to keep it all a secret. And the surprises didn’t end Friday night. “He woke me up this morning (Saturday) and told me to put on my Ohio State gear. We just finished watching the OSU game at the stadium. It’s been a weekend of surprises.”

More crash details released Civitas Media

TIPP CITY — More details have been released about Wednesday’s fiery crash on I-75 southbound that left two semi truck drivers dead. The accident also sent one driver to the hospital and shut down traffic for almost 21 hours, according to the Piqua Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol. According to reports, Dial Jhutti of Brampton, Ontario, Canada, was driving a commercial semi and failed to slow down for construction traffic. At about 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Jhutti struck the back of a Pontiac Sunfire driven by Loretta Stotler of Sidney. The Sunfire was pushed into the median cement barrier while Jhutti’s vehicle continued into another tractor trailer, driven by Michael Moore of Pierceton, Ind. Moore’s semi was forced into the middle lane and rear of another commerical vehicle, that one driven by Reynold Flemming of Brentwood, N.Y. Moore’s semi was then forced into the median cement barrier by Jhutti’s truck. Fleming’s vehicle was forced into the back of a Chevrolet Venture driven by William Shaw and passenger Judy Shaw of Xenia. The Venture then was forced into the back of a trailered boat and Ford F-350 driven by Chris Black of Howell, Mich. Black’s truck was forced into the rear of a Scion

FRS, driven by Thomas Burrow of Cincinnati. Jhutti’s, Stotler’s and Moore’s vehicles all caught fire after the crash. Fuel tanks from Jhutti and Moore’s trucks spilled diesel fuel and were apparently ignited from the impact. Moore and Jhutti were both found ejected from their semis and prounounced dead at the scene by Miami County Coroner investigators. Stotler sustained nonlife threatening injuries and was transported to the Upper Valley Medical Center by Tipp City emergency medical services personnel. The other five people involved in the crash were treated for minor injuries and released at the scene. Reports state that section of the interstate was closed completely for approximately four hours due to the extreme heat and flames. Traffic was restricted in the southbound lanes for approximately 21 hours due to incident clean-up and asphalt or repairs. Personnel from the Tipp City Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Services; Vandalia and Butler Township Fire Department; Miami County Sheriff’s Office; Ohio Department of Transportation; Ohio State Highway Patrol crash reconstruction unit and motor carrier inspectors all assisted with scene securement, investigation and traffic control. The crash remains under investigation.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The State Highway Patrol’s new leader plans to continue his predecessor’s dual emphasis targeting traffic safety and criminal activity while maintaining the current staffing level and adding resources to help trim the agency’s backlog of lab work. Col. Paul Pride, a former Marine who had served as an assistant superintendent, took the patrol’s top job in late July when the previous superintendent, Col. John Born, became director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety. Pride said troopers’ increased efforts to crack down on crimes such as drunken driving and drug trafficking have led to more stops, more arrests and safer roads, and he wants the organization to continue in that direction. Troopers have made more than 397,000 enforcement stops this year, up from about 377,000 at the same time in 2012, and they’ve logged double-digit percentage increases in the number of

drug violations, weapons violations and felony arrests. Ohio is on pace for a recordlow number of traffic fatalities this year with about 610 verified or unverified deaths so far, compared with roughly 775 fatalities by this time last year. Pride acknowledges that statistic is influenced by various law enforcement and other factors but said the enforcement data show troopers are making a difference. “The results of what we’re seeing now is a clear indication that we have missed a lot in the past because we failed to slow down and ask the right questions,” he told The Associated Press. “We’re in too big of a hurry to take care of that traffic citation and get back on the road again.” At his ceremonial swearingin, Pride said he’d ask officers to take care and approach their work as though the people they’re trying to protect on any given day were their own relatives. Their added focus on looking for signs of criminal activity has generated more work

for the patrol’s crime lab in Columbus, which has made it harder to chip away at a backlog of cases awaiting drug testing there. The backlog, which had climbed to about 4,000 cases in early 2011, has been reduced to about 2,000, Pride said. The patrol is expanding its lab space, streamlining that work and planning to hire more analysts to speed things along, he said. Statewide, Pride said he wants to maintain staffing at the current level of about 1,600 troopers. He’s hopeful that the patrol can train two classes of cadets each year to replace those lost from attrition and other reasons, which is generally about five employees per month. The next class, with about 60 cadets, is slated to start Sept. 18. Pride said he also wants to strengthen the patrol’s partnerships with other law enforcement agencies. “The bad guy gets away with stuff when we don’t cooperate and collaborate,” he said. ___

Ohio sheriff upset about subpoenas ATHENS (AP) — A southeast Ohio sheriff says he has had enough of a state investigation of his office, calling it “a witch hunt.” The Athens Messenger reported that Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly says he will no longer cooperate with Ohio investigators. He was upset after being served Friday with four grand jury subpoenas by agents of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation. “I would say BCI is out of control,” Kelly said. “I have cooperated with the BCI investigation, and I am through coop-

erating.” Attorney General Mike DeWine said the BCI “is a very professional organization.” Of Kelly’s pledge not to cooperate, DeWine said: “That’s his decision.” Investigators have been looking into Kelly’s office, which has previously been ordered to repay thousands of dollars in what audits called improperly spent money. The new subpoenas want records including actual hours worked by Kelly and his employees, records about copper wire that was seized several years ago, records about use of confiden-

tial informants and their payments, and records about any sheriff’s investigations of other county officials. Kelly says the state is throwing everything it can against a wall to see what will stick. “There is nothing to stick,” he said. “Now they are moving the witch hunt to a personal informant I have,” Kelly said, pledging not to divulge the name. He said his office is dealing with drug problems in the county, and that use of confidential informants is common in law enforcement. County Prosecutor

Keller Blackburn said Kelly apparently has indicated that the sheriff ’s office has investigated other public officials. Blackburn is among those the state wants any sheriff’s files on. Blackburn said there is nothing to investigate because no one in his office has done anything wrong, and that Kelly is trying to deflect attention from the investigation of the sheriff ’s office. DeWine said his office isn’t investigating the other officials, but wants to know if Kelly does have files on them.

Long said after Friday night’s concert, the crowd cleared quickly and was fairly calm throughout Friday night. “Hopefully it goes as well tonight as it did (Friday) night,” Long said. “Everybody has been pretty well-behaved.” Long said at least 10 summons were issued Friday night, mainly due to alcohol consumption. Long said one person was removed from the festival site for trying to sneak in the venue without paying. “We just made them leave and cut their wristbands and escorted them out,” Long said. A detailed lists of arrests and other incidents connected with the festival will be made available to the public in the future, Long said.

TROY — The heat and humidity took its toll on the crowds at Troy Memorial Stadium gathered for the Gentlemen of the Road’s first night of music. Approximately 63 people were treated for dehydration at the Alumni Victory Room and at The Rec’s at the medical stations well into the night. According to city of Troy’s Fire Department Chief Chris Boehringer, 12 people were transported to Upper Valley Medical Center and a Huber Heights health facility to receive treatment related to alcohol and the heat of Friday’s concert. “There were all definitely due to the heat and alcohol,” Boehringer said Saturday after-

Nation/World Today in History Associated Press

Today is Monday, Sept. 2, the 245th day of 2013. There are 120 days left in the year. This is Labor Day. Today’s Highlight in History: On September 2, 1945, Japan formally surrendered in ceremonies aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, ending World War II. On this date: In 1666, the Great Fire of London broke out. In 1789, the United States Treasury Department was established. In 1864, during the Civil War, Union Gen. William T. Sherman’s forces occupied Atlanta. In 1901, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt offered the advice, “Speak softly and carry a big stick” in a speech at the Minnesota State Fair. In 1924, the Rudolf Friml operetta “Rose Marie” opened on Broadway. In 1935, a Labor Day hurricane slammed into the Florida Keys, claiming more than 400 lives. In 1945, Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam an independent republic. (Ho died on this date in 1969.) In 1963, Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace prevented the integration of Tuskegee High School by encircling the building with state troopers. “The CBS Evening News” with Walter Cronkite was lengthened from 15 to 30 minutes, becoming network television’s first half-hour nightly newscast. In 1972, Dave Wottle of the United States won the men’s 800-meter race at the Munich Summer Olympics. In 1986, a judge in Los Angeles sentenced Cathy Evelyn Smith to three years in prison for involuntary manslaughter for her role in the 1982 drug overdose death of comedian John Belushi. (Smith served 18 months.) In 1993, the United States and Russia formally ended decades of competition in space by agreeing to a joint venture to build a space station. In 1998, a Swissair MD-11 jetliner crashed off Nova Scotia, killing all 229 people aboard. Ten years ago: A court in Jakarta, Indonesia, sentenced Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir to four years in prison for sedition (his conviction was later overturned after he’d spent more than two years behind bars.) A federal appeals court in San Francisco threw out more than 100 death sentences in Arizona, Montana and Idaho because the inmates had been sent to death row by judges instead of juries. Five years ago: Republicans assailed Barack Obama as the most liberal, least experienced White House nominee in history at their convention in St. Paul, Minn., and enthusiastically extolled their own man, John McCain, as ready to lead the nation. President George W. Bush briefly addressed the convention by satellite from the White House. A gunman in Skagit County, Wash., killed six people and injured four others; a suspect, Isaac Zamora, later pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to two murders and guilty to the remaining four, and is being held in a mental hospital.

Vt. man, 73, plants mystery seeds, gets pot ticket ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — A 73-year-old man who was given the first civil marijuana ticket in a Vermont town says he had planted some seeds he found in a box and “got spanked” by police after it grew into a pot plant. William Reynolds was issued a $200 civil ticket by St. Johnsbury police after authorities seized a potted 2 1/2-foot-tall marijuana plant from his Main Street apartment. Police say they saw no indication Reynolds was a pot smoker or had other marijuana plants. Reynolds tells the Caledonian Record he doesn’t smoke marijuana and was “playing around” with the seeds he found. He says he “did wrong” and won’t contest the ticket. Vermont decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana on July 1.

Mandela discharged from hospital, returns home Rodney Muhumza Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Nelson Mandela went home in an ambulance on Sunday after nearly three months in a hospital that became the focus of a global outpouring of concern, but authorities said the health of the former South African president remained critical and sometimes unstable. The return of the 95-yearold leader of the anti-apartheid movement to his home in an affluent neighborhood of Johannesburg allows his family to share time with him in a more intimate setting. The office of South African President Jacob Zuma said Mandela will receive the same level of intensive care that he did in the hospital, administered by the same doctors. Zuma’s office said the team of doctors treating Mandela, also known by his clan name Madiba, is “convinced that he will receive the same level of intensive care at his Houghton home that he received in Pretoria. His home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care there.” The statement also said: “If there are health conditions that warrant another admission to hospital in future, this will be done.” Mandela had been treated in a hospital in Pretoria, about 31 miles (50 kilometers) from

An ambulance transporting former South African president Nelson Mandela arrives at the home of the former statesman in Johannesburg, South Africa, Sunday. Mandela has been in hospital for more than two months fighting a recurring lung infection.

Johannesburg, and the areas near the entrances to both the hospital and his home became makeshift shrines where people sang, prayed and left messages of support for a man who steered South Africa from white minority rule to democratic rule in a spirit of reconciliation that inspired the world. Mandela was admitted to the hospital on June 8 for what the government described as a recurring lung infection. Legal papers filed by his family said he was on life support, and

many South Africans feared the man widely viewed as the “father of the nation” was close to death. One of Mandela’s daughters, Makaziwe Mandela, told The Associated Press as she left her father’s home that the family was “happy that he is home.” Another Mandela family member, grandson Mandla Mandela, said the former president’s return home was a “day of celebration.” Madiba’s discharge was “particularly heartening because

it flies in the face of those who have been busy spreading lies that he was in a ‘vegetative state’ and just waiting for his support machines to be switched off,” the South African Press Association quoted Mandla Mandela as saying. Mandla Mandela, the oldest male Mandela heir, has feuded with family members over the burial site of the anti-apartheid leader’s three deceased children and it was unclear whether his remarks reflected the views of other relatives.

Workers’ protests highlight fast-food economics Candice Choi and Jonathan Fahey AP Business Writers

NEW YORK (AP) — American fast-food workers often earn about $7.25 an hour to make the $3 chicken sandwiches and 99-cent tacos that generate billions of dollars in profit each year for McDonald’s and other chains. Thousands of the nation’s many millions of fast-food workers and their supporters have been staging protests across the country in the past year to call attention to the struggles of living on or close to the federal minimum wage. The push raises the question of whether the economics of the fast-food industry allow room for a boost in pay for its workers. The industry is built on a business model that keeps costs — including those for labor — low so companies can make money while satisfying America’s love of cheap, fast food. And no group along the food chain, from the customers to the companies, wants to foot the bill for higher wages for workers. Customers want a deal when they order burgers and fries. But those cheap eats squeeze franchise store owners who say they already survive on slim margins. And the corporations have to grow profits to keep shareholders happy. “There’s no room in the fast-food business model for substantially higher pay levels without raising prices for food,” says Richard Adams, a former McDonald’s franchisee who now runs a fastfood consulting business.

Caught in that triangle are the workers. The median hourly wage for a fast-food cook last year was $9, up from about $7 a decade ago, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But many workers make the federal minimum wage, which was last raised in 2009. At $7.25 an hour, that’s about $15,000 a year, assuming a 40-hour workweek. It’s well less than half of the median salary of an American worker. The protests come as President Obama has called for an increase of the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour, with some members of Congress and economists calling for a hike as well. And the fast-food workers movement is getting financial support as well as training from organizers of the Service Employees International Union, which represents more than 2 million workers. Workers protesting in cities including New York, Chicago and Detroit, are pushing for $15 an hour, which would mean wages of $31,000 a year. But the figure is seen as more of a rallying point and many say they’d be happy with even a few bucks more. “Anything to make it more reasonable,” says Jamal Harris, 21, who earns $7.40 an hour working at three different fastfood restaurants around Detroit — a Burger King, a Long John Silver’s and a Checkers — because he’s never sure how many hours he’ll get at any one job. The same is true for Robert Wilson, a 25-yearold McDonald’s employee

in Chicago. “It was never a consistent check,” said Wilson, who lives with his mother and brother who also work at the restaurant. Wilson says he was given one 10-cent raise in the past four years. That brings his pay up to $8.60 an hour after seven years working at the restaurant. Low wages and a lack of benefits for workers aren’t anything new in the fastfood industry, of course. It’s why “McJob” has been a pejorative term for so long. What’s changing now is that such jobs are playing a bigger role in the U.S. economy, bringing the fast-food protests closer to home for many. Nearly 70 percent of the jobs gained since the recession ended have been in low-paying industries such as fast-food or retail. That’s even though half of the jobs lost during the Great Recession were in industries that pay between $38,000 and $68,000 a year. Currently, the median annual wage for all U.S. full-time wage and salary workers is about $40,350, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s based on weekly earnings of $776. The tilt toward low-wage jobs is what makes it so critical for fast-food and retail jobs to provide better pay, says Robert Reich, an advocate for workers who served as Labor Secretary in the Clinton administration. “It’s impossible for the economy to run on all four cylinders unless consumers have enough purchasing power to keep the economy going,” he said.

David Frost, known for Richard Nixon interview, dies at 74 Sylvia Hui Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — David Frost had sparred with Richard Nixon for hours, recording a series of interviews with the former president three years after he stepped down in disgrace over Watergate. But as the sessions drew to a close, Frost realized he still lacked something: an acknowledgement by Nixon that he had been wrong. Nixon had admitted making mistakes, but Frost put down his clipboard and pressed his subject on whether that was enough. Americans, he said, wanted to hear him own up to his misdeeds and acknowledge abusing the power of the White House. “Unless you say it, you’re going to be haunted for the rest of your life,” the British broadcaster told Nixon. What came next were some of the most extraordinary comments ever made by a politician on television. For Frost, who died Saturday, it was the signature moment of an illustrious television career that spanned half a century and included interviews with a long list of the world’s most powerful and famous, including virtually every British prime minister and U.S. president of his time.

Congress From page 1 will await approval from the House and Senate before ordering any cruise missile strikes or other action. On Capitol Hill, senior administration officials briefed lawmakers in private to explain why the U.S. is compelled to act against President Bashar Assad’s government. Further classified meetings were planned over the next three days. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a leading Senate hawk and the candidate Obama defeated for the presidency in 2008, said Obama had invited him to the White House Monday to discuss Syria. Obama must convince skeptical Americans and

their representatives in Congress of the need for more U.S. military action in the Muslim world after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also is trying to assemble an international coalition, but finding it hard to land partners. They fear becoming involved in a conflict that has claimed more than 100,000 lives in the past 2½ years and dragged in terrorist groups on both sides of the battlefield. Only France is firmly on board among the major military powers. Britain’s Parliament rejected the use of force in a vote last week. The United Nations on Sunday asked the head

of its chemical weapons inspection team to expedite the analysis of tests from samples it collected from Syria last week. Assad’s government, which has denied allegations of chemical weapons use, reveled in Obama’s decision to defer any immediate action. Deputy Foreign Minister Faysal Mikdad claimed that the move reflected the lack of evidence of government culpability. With Navy ships on standby in the eastern Mediterranean sea ready to launch missiles, Congress began a series of meetings that will take place over the next several days in preparation for a vote once lawmak-

ers return from summer break, which is scheduled to end Sept. 9. S enior State Department official Wendy Sherman and military officials were seen entering a congressional conference room, carrying a chart and other material they were to present to lawmakers who’ve already returned to Washington. Dozens of members attended. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee plans a meeting Tuesday, according to its chairman, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J. The Senate Armed Service Committee will gather a day later, said Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, the top

Republican on the panel. Kerry confidently predicted that lawmakers would back limited military strikes. “The stakes are just really too high here,” he said. Kerry was asked repeatedly in the broadcast interviews what Obama would do if Congress didn’t give its consent. He said he believed lawmakers would recognize the grave implications for letting a chemical weapons attack go unchecked and what that might mean for U.S. efforts to force North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons and prevent Iran from acquiring such capability.

to be aware of their risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes and of the preventative steps they can take. Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes and one in three people, 79 million, have prediabetes, a condition where blood glucose is elevated, but not high enough for a diabetes diagnosis. The nation’s struggle with obesity and type 2 diabetes is no surprise, but the number of people with prediabetes is a growing. The disease can be prevented or delayed with lifestyle changes,

Dear Readers: Here is my funny Sound Off for this week. Have any of you noticed how “Box Tops for Education” labels are not always on the TOP of boxes?

Why can’t all box tops be placed on the TOP of the boxes? — Heloise P.S.: Ask co-workers and friends if they want you to save box tops for them. They add up!

including healthy eating and physical activity. People with prediabetes are at risk of not only developing type 2 diabetes, but cardiovascular diseases, stroke and other conditions. “You don’t have to make the changes alone. The Sidney-Shelby County YMCA can assist. Our free, eight-week course will give you education and support to help you achieve success in preventing diabetes or to successfully manage the disease,” said Sam Casalano, associate executive director.

The eight-week course will provide participants with weekly education, free materials and information on a wide-range of diabetes-related topics, including monitoring and testing, diet and nutrition, exercise, foot and eye care, medications maintenance and making healthy choices. “We are grateful to Wilson Memorial Hospital, as well as many other community individuals, for helping us provide the classes at no cost to participants,” said Casalano.

Officer Phil Program begins in schools on Tuesday The Officer Phil Program will present its 2013-2014 programs in local elementary schools Tuesday through Thursday. The project of the Sidney Police Department is geared to the elementary grade students. Lessons will be taught in a fun, energized way. Much to the children’s delight, one of Officer Phil’s pals, Lucky Duck, will be there to help teach safety lessons. The program begins with an introduction of the Sidney Police officers in attendance. Magic tricks and Strat-o-Spheres (colored balls representing traffic lights) will be used to capture the attention of children, who will learn to wear

bike helmets, fasten seat belts, follow a bus driver’s rules, walk on sidewalks instead of in the streets, be cautious with strangers, refuse to provide personal information unless a parent says it’s all right to do so. This year, the Officer Phil Program will also talk about being healthy on the inside by eating healthy and exercising. The children will be reminded of the good foods they should eat: fruits and vegetables, fish and protein. They will learn that they need to exercise in order to stay physically fit. Lucky Duck will sing and tell duck jokes. He will talk to the children about being safe. Lucky reminds the children that

the police officers are there to help keep them safe. As a post-assembly activity, teachers, parents and children will be encouraged to visit the website, officerphil. com, to request additional materials. There are Values in Action cards and a VIP poster that will reinforce the lessons taught in the program and in the activity books that the children will receive after the program. Officers will visit Longfellow and Northwood elementaries on Tuesday, Whittier Elementary on Wednesday, and Emerson Elementary and Holy Angels Catholic School on Thursday.

Platfoot buys the bar, breaking off just what she needs and storing the rest. The beaters and bowl must be perfectly clean to whip egg whites. Platfoot does not recommend using a microwave to melt the German’s chocolate. As a rule, it’s easy to overcook chocolate in a microwave. The cake pans should be greased but not floured.

Farm Science Review is just around the corner A rescue tube is placed around a participant at the grain bin rescue training event held at Trupointe Cooperative in Sidney on Aug. 21.

Emergency responders train for grain bin rescue More than 50 emergency responders and area grain personnel were trained in grain bin safety and rescue procedures at Trupointe Cooperative in Sidney on Aug. 20-23. The training event, sponsored by the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) Seaway Chapter, utilized a mock grain bin filled with corn to give those attending

hands-on rescue training. Participants, wearing safety gear and a harness, were partially submerged in corn while emergency responders placed a rescue tube around the person in the corn and then vacuumed the corn from the tube until the person could be pulled from the bin. Attending the event were 24 area firefighters, 14 grain personnel and 15

returning firefighters who attended refresher courses toward the end of the week. Trupointe Cooperative, which lists safety as one of its seven core values, three years ago donated an area of its Sidney location as the permanent site to construct the Seaway Chapter’s Grain Safety Training Center. Since then, grain bin rescue training has become an annual event. Steve Queen,

the GEAPS Seaway training coordinator, said funds donated for the event have helped purchase three rescue tubes that then were donated to fire departments in Piqua, Van Wert and Sidney. Trupointe, based out of Piqua, is a leading member-owned agriculture and energy cooperative with 41 locations throughout Ohio and Indiana.

Instead of applying fertilizer to the entire field at a uniform rate, even to areas that may not need it, variable rate spreading allows fertilizer to go only where it is needed possibly saving tons of fertilizer. Water quality can improve due to variable rate spreading. If the soil does not need the nutrients for uptake into the crops, the nutrients can become mobile and run off into open watercourses as pollutants. This risk is minimized by the use of GPS soil sampling and variable rate spreading, since nutrients are not over applied to any areas of the field. Fall is a great time to do GPS soil sampling, so take the time and start thinking about GPS soil sampling soon.

The elections will take place starting in September with results being posted in midOctober.

Steven Leis, Ansonia, owns 350 acres and leases 1,300 acres where he maintains a beef and grain operation. He is a former member of the Versailles Farm Credit Advisory Committee, is a past president of the Ohio Flying Farmers and is a board member of the Darke County Farm Bureau.

The association provides loans for all farm and rural living purposes including real estate, operating, equipment, housing and related services such as crop insurance, and vehicle, equipment and building leases.

It’s hard to believe that it’s already September! Where did August (and June … and July) go? Zoomed past again, didn’t they?! So, alright, the kids are back in school … now it’s time for some “educational update” for the rest of us: Farm Science Review is just around the corner! This year’s Review will be held Tuesday through Thursday, Sept. 17–19 at the FSR site near London, Ohio. There is always something new to learn and many different venues in which to do it: “Ask the Authorities,” the Gwynn Conservation Area, the Center for Small Farms, and Utzinger Memorial Garden, just to name a few. Of course, there are equipment demonstrations in Trotter Field and lots of vendors to talk to. A schedule of activities for the Review can be found at http:// documents/pdf/2013Ag documents/2013-showUpdate Deborah schedule. It took a bit, but Reinhart Brown once I got Stanley there about 10 years ago, he’s been excited about going every year – and learns something each time, too! (It did take some talkin’ to get him there: He had attended once in the ‘70s and “that was enough.”) No, we don’t spend a lot of time looking at equipment … and, I have no real interest in “watching someone else farm” – I’d rather be doing the driving! But, we’ve found the programs at the Review to be very interesting. We’ve even made it a “Family Outing” with James and Kim and the kids joining us for the day! It’s a nice time to get together, to see people, to learn something new. If you haven’t been there for awhile – or, even if you have – maybe it’s time to make another trip!! Tickets are available at the OSU Extension office here in Sidney (810 Fair Road). By purchasing them locally, you can save some money: $7 here versus $10 at the gate. Children 5 and under get in free. Directions, parking, and other information are available at Yeah, it’s September. I’d like to think things will slow down a bit, but somehow, I know better! A quick look at the calendar just reminded me that this week is full, next is close, then FSR … Oh, well, October will be here soon! Wonder what all that month will bring … The writer is the Ohio State University Extension Educator, Agriculture and Natural Resources for Shelby County, Top of Ohio EERA.

Your horoscope 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 Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things might be confusing at work today, and possibly with your health as well. Just wait a bit, because by evening, you will see things more clearly. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Earlier in the day, parents should be vigilant about their children, especially

regarding poisoning or drinking something harmful. By evening, life is back on track again. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A family member might not be entirely truthful with you today. Ironically, late in the day, someone older might step in with sage advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel confused today. Or perhaps you don’t have all the facts. Or someone may be trying to deceive you. Whatever the case, by evening, you will know.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be careful with financial matters today. If shopping, keep your receipts and count your change. By evening, you might want to draw up a budget. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Conversations with partners and close friends are confusing and possibly deceitful. Be aware of this. Late in the day, however, you can sit down and make longrange plans for the future. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Something suspicious or sneaky might be taking place today. If you think some-

thing fishy is going on, it is! (You’ll know by evening.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your attempts to go along with people in a group are halfhearted today. You’re not sure this is what you want to do. If so, do nothing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Conversations with authority figures — parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs — are subject to confusion today. Be clear in all your communications. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, which is why you will enjoy

visiting galleries, museums, parks and beautiful buildings. Later, you might make plans for travel or further education. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Today is a poor day to make decisions about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters and debt. Wait until this evening. In fact, someone older or more experienced might have helpful advice for you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t take people at their word today, because they might be confused or they might try to confuse you! Trust your gut instincts. By

evening, you’ll know what the score is. YOU BORN TODAY You like to build things because you want to leave a legacy behind you. You love form and structure, and putting things together. Not only can you build systems, you can build organizations as well. (You know the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.) Many of you are also collectors. This year, you are beginning a fresh new cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Max Greenfield, actor; Damon Wayans, comedian/ writer; Khandi Alexander, actress.

But sleep cannot be stored by the body in the same manner that food can (as fat). So excess rest (more than the body needs) can be interpreted as wasted. Ten hours sleep in a 24-hour period should be sufficient! DR. WALLACE: I’m 16 and so is my girlfriend. We are popular at school and active in school activities. I’m a virgin and my girlfriend says that she is too, but she says that she no longer wants to stay that way and wants us to join the ranks of teens who are

sexually active. I’m not sure that I want to enter into a sexual affair at this time of my life. I’m not a prude, but I don’t want to have sex dominate my life right now. My girlfriend has bought books on “love making” and wants me to read them. She already has. Last night, she told me that she will give me two weeks to read the books and then join her in sexual activity or else she will find a willing partner and, trust me, that won’t be too difficult. Now I’m put in a position that if I want to keep a relationship, I must include sex on our dates. I always read in your column about sexually aggressive guys. What should I do about a sexually

aggressive girlfriend? - Nameless, Indianapolis, Ind. NAMELESS: The answer is the same whether the sexual aggressor is male or female; a clear, unambiguous “No!” If she can’t accept that, she will have to go somewhere else to satisfy her fantasy. The decision to have sex, especially when it is coerced, is far more likely to wreck a relationship than to “save” it. Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

Letter to the editor

Was levy defeat really a step backward? To the editor: Was it really a step backward when the 1 percent school income tax levy was defeated? What in the outcome indicated anything negative, except for the fact that the school district didn’t get what they wanted — precisely when they wanted it? After the previous school levy, the superintendent reported that changes had been made and school funding was solvent through 2014. Since it is now only 2013, how has the need for additional funding suddenly reached critical mass? Obviously, it hasn’t. If one step backward, such as the 1 percent levy not passing, results in two steps forward — such as forcing positive changes in school performance or more efficient fiscal management — then it wasn’t a step backward. It was a step in the right direction. Remember — a 1 percent school income tax affects any income reported on your tax forms: company pension plans, property sales/transfers, IRAs, 401Ks, annuities, savings, CDs, disability, unemployment, part-time income, and summer hire for college kids. All of the interest and/or income from any of those sources is taxable. Think about it long and hard before you check “yes, I’m for the 1 percent school income tax” on your next ballot. John W.

Labor Day to most people marks the unofficial end to summer. Kids are back to school, football season revs up and the days keep getting shorter and shorter. Particularly here in west central Ohio, where farming and other agricultural industries make up such a large part of our economy, the end of summer is a perfect time to celebrate Labor Day. There is so much more value to working than simply earning an income. Work brings people together and instills important values like confidence, cooperation and self-worth. Working hard—both on

quickly as we would like. But these trends indicate that our state is still on the road to economic recovery and is becoming more attractive to job-creators. Labor Day in the United States has a long history. Ever since President Grover Cleveland was in office near the end of the 19th Century, Labor Day has been celebrated on the first Monday of September. I hope you are able to carry on this tradition in some way by spending time with your families, friends, neighbors, or by just taking some time for yourself before the alarm clock rings Tuesday morning.

How can my office help you? Some of my office’s most critical work has nothing to do with votes cast on the Senate floor. As your senator, my most important job is serving you and helping constituents cut through red tape when dealing with the federal government. That means helping seniors access the Social Security benefits they have paid into, assisting veterans and their families in obtaining veterans benefits and military medals that they earned but never received, and helping small businesses that are looking to create jobs and access federal tax credits or lending programs. In the more than 200 roundtables that I have held all over the state – including at least one in each of Ohio’s 88 counties — I’ve heard from constituents who must spend hours on the telephone correcting a paperwork problem with a federal agency. They shouldn’t have to do this, and my office is here to help ease this burden. With field offices in every region of the state – including rural areas in Southeast and Northwest Ohio – my top priority is constituent services. That is why my offices located in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Lorain are open every business day to serve you. Ohioans in need of assistance can visit ohio/constituent_services/ or call my office tollfree at 888-896-OHIO (6446). Still wondering if we could help you? Let me provide a few recent examples of ways my constituent services team have assisted Ohioans. A disabled Athens County constituent recently contacted my office to request assistance with his Social Security claim. The constituent had been trying to qualify for benefits for over 18 months and was struggling to make ends meet. The constituent had provided documentation establishing his dire situation. My office contacted the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) on the constituent’s behalf. Upon reviewing the medical and financial documentation provided by the constituent, the agency expedited the constituent’s hearing request. The constituent called my office to inform my staff that within a week after his hearing, he received a favorable determination. When times are tough, an Ohioan shouldn’t have to wait to receive help. A 93 year-old Medina County veteran was injured during World War II and never received any of the medals he earned in combat. My office was successful in obtaining for the veteran the six

medals he earned serving the benefits they earned. Sometimes, there are our nation, including a Purple Heart and Bronze Ohio companies who Star medal.

pain, no fever and only slight cramping. I had a malignant polyp removed four months previously. Have you ever heard of this type of bleeding, and is there a likelihood it will recur? — Anon. ANSWER: There are several possibilities. Your gastroenterologist has my vote as most likely. Diverticula are little outpouchings in the lining of the bowel, especially in the sigmoid colon — the final section of the large intestine. Diverticulosis is the condition of having these diverticula, and it becomes “diverticulitis” when they become infected, often causing pain and fever. However, bleeding is more common in diverticulosis without diverticulitis. If it is coming from the diverticula, the risk of recurrence is high. Colitis is a good thought as well, but there are several kinds. Inflammatory bowel disease is a type of colitis; ischemic colitis also is possible. Colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy or proctoscopy — visual inspections of the colon or rectum — can make these diagnoses. Infectious colitis, e.g. E. coli, cause bleeding when they are invasive — and that means fever and at least 48 hours after the

infected meal, so I think that diagnosis is unlikely. Given your history of a cancerous polyp, it’s possible but unlikely that a second polyp or cancer was missed during your previous colonoscopy. Twice in my career I have seen a hemorrhoid bleed out more than a unit of blood. One other unusual cause is an A-V malformation — abnormal connections between arteries and veins — present in less than 1 percent of the population. The follow-up colonoscopy you are already scheduled for is likely to help sort out these possibilities.

Career center enrollment passes 850 PIQUA — Enrollment for the 2013-14 school year at Upper Valley Career Center has topped more than 850 students. Superintendent Nancy Luce told the Board of Education that enrollment at the main campus is around 860 students, the highest it has been in many years. Luce reported on the start of the new school year during Monday’s meeting. Luce said the district is working with the associate schools who appoint board members to the Upper Valley Career Center to review requirements and develop procedures for the appointments as required by House Bill 59. Legal counsel will be providing recommendations to the board at its September meeting. Luce also reviewed two proposed policy changes: ECG-Integrated Pest Management and GBRFamily and Medical Leave Act. Both revisions will be recommended for approval at the September meeting. Results from the report card for career centers is positive, said Luce. The report card reflects the goals for all students attending a career center: graduation, program completion, technical skill development and readiness for the work-

force and/or post-secondary training. Luce reviewed the recent safety training provided to the staff by the Piqua Police Department. The district is applying for a waiver say so all staff can participate in a full day of training later in the year.

Lake From page 1 we’re back. It was exciting to be there to see that going on.” Also called cyanobacteria, blue-green algae are common in most lakes. In the shallow Grand Lake St. Marys, algae has grown thick feeding on phosphorus from manure and fertilizers that rain washes from nearby farm fields. The algae produces liver and nerve toxins that can sicken people and kill pets and fish. The state has used money inserted in the budget to help fund pilot projects, to study what works in reducing the amount of nutrients reaching the lake, and reducing the algae in the lake now. Gebhardt said people in the region stopped pointing fingers at each other and started working together and gave credit to Milt Miller, of the Grand Lake St. Marys Restoration Commission, for helping to make that happen. One of the projects, for example, involve restoring wetlands around the lake that had been removed. “The wetlands are natural kidneys. The water going in is full of nutrients, and the water going out looks like this,” Gebhardt said, holding up his bottled water. “It’s working, and it’s an example of what works when we work together.”

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a creative day full of social possibilities. Accept all invitations to party and enjoy good times with others. Romance can flourish! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You'll enjoy entertaining at home today; however, it's a poor day to shop for items for your home or family (except for food). Relax and enjoy! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is an excellent day to be creative with communication skills. It's also a great day to be creative with your hands. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have excellent moneymaking ideas today; however, be careful with financial transactions. This morning is good, but this afternoon is not. Forewarned is forearmed. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel great today! The Moon is in your sign, dancing with fair Venus. This is a great day to flirt, enjoy sports events and schmooze with others. Accept all invitations. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Work alone or behind the scenes today because you need your privacy. Perhaps you need time alone to pull your act together or just mellow out. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A female friend might offer a sympathetic shoulder or willing ear today. Or you might be the person that someone else needs to confide in. It never hurts to ask for advice. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Personal details about your private life might be made public, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs. Remember this, and keep a low profile even though you are popular now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Because you want to have a little adventure, go someplace you've never been before. Learn something new. Talk to people from different cultures. Live it up! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Others might be generous to you today. (Keep smiling.) This morning is the time to ask for what you want. In the afternoon, you can just graciously accept. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You will have to compromise in your dealings with others today because the Moon is opposite your sign. Fortunately, it's well-aspected and everyone will be congenial. (One can only hope.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It's easy to get along with co-workers today. If you want assistance or favors from others, ask for this in the morning. In the afternoon, everything is loosey-goosey. YOU BORN TODAY You are not always what you seem. Sometimes you have to play a role in life. One thing is certain, you are multitalented. You also are a visionary with wonderful social skills. Although you are patient, you love action and tend to gravitate toward controversy. Something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish this year to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Kiran Desai, author; Eileen Brennan, actress; Al Jardine, musician.

Good and bad in opening day win Buckeyes whip Buffalo 40-20

Jim Naveau COLUMBUS – For the first 15 minutes, it looked like every bold prediction, every dream of a perfect season and every kind word uttered about Ohio State’s football team in the preseason had come true. Then it got real. Perfection is achieved over time, it doesn’t just arrive on its own. After jumping out to a 23-0 lead one quarter into its season opener against Buffalo on Saturday, No. 2 Ohio State struggled at times the rest of the way – if a 40-20 win can be called struggling. “You can’t play much better than our guys did (in the first quarter),” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. “We were pushing the ball down the field and making plays.” Ohio State scored the first two times it had the ball, the first time on a 47-yard pass from Braxton Miller and the second on a 7-yard throw from Miller to Chris Fields. It extended its lead to 23-0 in the final minute of the first quarter when Jordan Hall went 49 yards untouched for a score. But on its next three possessions, Ohio State was stopped on a 4th down and 1-yard to go play, saw freshman running back Dontre Wilson lose n fumble, and Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack intercept a screen pass by Miller and return it 45 yards for a touchdown. All of a sudden, instead of being hopelessly out of the game, Buffalo was within 10 points of the Buckeyes at 23-13 halfway through the second quarter. “We were rolling at first and with that screen I threw, the momentum kind of went down,” Miller said. “I thought it was going to keep going and keep going. It kind of went downhill. We kind of brought it back up but it

could have been a lot better,” he said. Ohio State pushed its lead to 30-13 at halftime on a 37-yard run by Hall, who had a careerhigh 159 yards on 21 carries. Buffalo scored first in the second half on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Joe Licata to Alex Neutz to make it 30-20, but Ohio State closed out the game with 10 unanswered points. Meyer saw positives and negatives in the game. “The good is that they’re fighters. Obviously, our roster has taken some hits. We’re down some players. I like the fact that they fought. I like the fact they jumped out early. The negative is that you need to sustain consistent effort and intensity.” Ohio State came into the game with several large holes in its roster. Running backs Carlos Hyde and Rod Smith and cornerback Bradley Roby were suspended. Safety C.J. Barnett was out with a sprained ankle and backup defensive lineman Tommy Schutt will be out six to eight weeks with a broken foot. Those problems got even bigger when standout linebacker Ryan Shazier had to go to the locker room for more than a quarter because of cramping on a hot, humid day. When Shazier went out, that left safety Christian Bryant as the only returning starter on OSU’s defense. Miller completed 15 of 22 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns. He rushed 17 times for 77 yards. It was a tale of two very different halves for him, though. He threw 18 of his 22 passes in the first half and 11 of his 17 running plays were in the second half. The turnaround in his approach was based on doing what was needed when Buffalo

began dropping eight defenders back into pass coverage in the second half he and Meyer both said. In the series that produced Ohio State’s final touchdown in the fourth quarter, Miller had runs of 40 yards and 16 yards after leaving the game twice earlier with leg cramps. “When we needed a couple of plays, he had a couple of big ones for us,” Meyer said. “We were backed up in a critical situation and he got us almost all the way down the field.” Shazier, who returned to play the final quarter and a half, says Ohio State can do the same kind of thing as a team, even if the opener wasn’t always pretty. “We’re the No. 2 team in the nation and we’re supposed to be a great team in a lot of people’s eyes. We did a good job today but we really weren’t playing to our best abilities,” he said. “I feel like we’re going to come out and do a better job next week (against San Diego State).”

I was suspended because of a didn’t know what that confrontation between him (the 15-yard penalty) was and a Bloomington, Ind., about,” he said. Jim Grant was blitzing and Naveau bar bouncer.

It’s possible that News cornerback before Saturday. he would have played more The rest of his playing time than one play minus his headgear if he had to. He was had come on special teams.

By comparision, OSU linebacker greats pen right off the bat. When you James Laurinaitis and A.J. Hawk see a guy who hasn’t even played were rated 3-star recruits coming a down at corner, I would throw at him too. I didn’t expect anything out of high school. But as a freshman, Grant had different,” Reeves said. “Overall, three more stars than he had tack- I did a decent job with all the les, when he made only two stops things they threw at me. “There were a whole lot of in brief appearances.

There was a lot of everyally was replaced by converted thing,” he said. Suspensions, injuries and fullback Zach Boren, who hadn’t played linebacker since four years leg cramps that sidelined Ryan Shazier for a while on Saturday earlier in high school. Saturday, Grant had 5 ½ tack- meant that Ohio State had 10 les, second on the Buckeyes to players on defense at times who were not starters last year. Ryan Shazier’s 6 ½. That defense allowed only 13 There weren’t any memorable hits, but he was a solid contribu- points to Buffalo since one of the Bulls’ touchdowns came on a pass tor, not just a spectator. “The good thing is I was glad to interception by linebacker Khalil be back out there with my broth- Mack. Even with that, it wasn’t a ers, I wasn’t running just a few memorable defensive effort. But maybe it was a memorable plays,” Grant said. “To be honest, I haven’t played day for at least two players on a full game since my senior year OSU’s defense.

NOTES: OFFENSIVE BREAKDOWN: So, how does a quarterback throw a pass directly into a defender’s hands, as Miller did, on Mack’s 45-yard interception and return for a score Saturday. Sometimes it’s not entirely his fault. “We missed a block. It’s a quick screen to our No. 2 receiver. If it had happened a split second sooner, Braxton probably wouldn’t have thrown it. A split second later and the ball probably would have been out already,” Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman said. “It was a hell of a play by him (Mack). It wasn’t a missed assignment, it was a missed technique.” FIELDS AND GUITON AGAIN: Last year when Kenny Guiton replaced the injured Miller and led Ohio State to an overtime win over Purdue, the touchdown that allowed OSU to tie the game in regulation after a two-point conversion, came on a pass to Chris Fields. Saturday, with Miller out of the game with leg cramps, history repeated itself when Guiton threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Fields. “I always get excited when Kenny gets into the game,” Fields said. CARTER RECOGNIZED: Former Ohio State receiver Cris Carter, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this summer, was recognized on the field between the first and second quarters on Saturday.

DENVER (AP) — Todd Helton doubled for his 2,500th career hit, Michael Cuddyer homered among his four hits and the Colorado Rockies overcame the loss of starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 on Sunday. Helton became the 96th player in major league history to reach 2,500 hits. Cuddyer went 4 for 4 with three RBIs. Shin-Soo Choo homered and had three hits for the Reds. Chris Heisey was 4 for 4. Helton homered twice Friday to move within one hit of the milestone but went 0 for 4 on Saturday. He flied out, struck out and walked Sunday before facing reliever Curtis Partch in the seventh inning. Helton worked the count full before lacing a ball down the leftfield line. He just beat the throw to second for his 584th career double. He received a standing ovation from the crowd of 30,594 and tipped his helmet to the cheering fans. The Rockies had the game in hand before Helton’s big moment after breaking it open in the fifth against Reds starter Mike Leake. DJ LeMahieu’s two-run double snapped a 2-all tie, Troy Tulowitzki walked and Cuddyer doubled to make it 5-2. Nolan Arenado, who homered earlier, added a sacrifice fly off reliever Alfredo Simon. Leake (11-6) allowed six runs on eight hits and struck out four in 4 1-3 innings. Cuddyer’s 18th home run leading off the seventh gave the Rockies a 7-2 cushion. Cincinnati scored single runs in the eighth and ninth to get within three before Rex Brothers got the final out.

COLUMBUS GROVE — Minster’s cross country teams swept to victory Saturday in the annual Columbus Grove Invitational., Gray Division.

Lehman’s Elizabeth Edwards (20) battles Newton’s Morgan Miller for control of the ball in girls soccer action Saturday afternoon at Lehman.

Lehman girls go to 3-0-1 after dominating Newton Lehman would seem to have a pretty good argument for being the top-ranked Division III girls soccer team in the Miami Valley after Saturday. The Lady Cavaliers were ranked No. 3 in the first coaches’ poll last week, and Newton No. 8, most likely due in large part on the strength of losing just 2-1 to No. 1-ranked Troy Christian. But Lehman took on Newton Saturday and it was no contest from the beginning, the Lady Cavs putting up five goals in the first half and cruising to a 6-0 shutout of the Lady Indians to run their record on the year to 3-0-1. “We came out strong,” said Lehman coach Tony Schroeder. “When we did warm-ups, we (the coaches) felt like the girls really warmed up well and that they would probably come out strong.” The Lady Cavs probably exceeded even his expectations, however, when they scored just 45 seconds into the game off a corner kick triggered by Marla Schroeder. The ball bounced around and was shot into the goal by Jenna Kronenberger, off an assist from Hannah Fogt.

That opened the flood gates, and the Lady Cavs put up four more goals before the half. The next one came at the halfway point of the opening half when Schroeder took another corner kick and Madeline Franklin was there to knock it in. With 13 minutes left, Schroeder played a through-ball to Ashley Keller for a goal, and with 5:48 left, Franklin dribbled around several defenders and drilled the ball to the side post. Just 30 seconds later, it was Elizabeth Edwards passing to sister Katie Edwards for the goal that gave their team a 5-0 bulge at the intermission. Lehman was a model of efficiency in the first half, taking eight shots and connecting on five. Then about the midway point of the second half, Liz Pax passed to Keller for a long shot and the final goal of the game. Grace Franz had three saves for Lehman, and Newton goalie Brittany Ross came up with five. Lehman boys win 2-1 The Lehmans boys soccer defeated the Newton Indians 2-1 Saturday.

The Indians jumped to a 1-0 first half lead when Jack Yoder capitalized on an indirect kick. He was able to find the back of the net from 8 yards out at the 13.53 mark. They took that lead into halftime. The second half was all Lehman, though. Seth Bensman had the first Cavalier goal at the 15:47 mark. Lehman had a corner kick that John Henry Frantz tracked down and passed to Bensman, who stuck it in the right side of the net. The Cavaliers secured the win on a pass from Bensman to Travis Thornton in the middle of the box at the 25:44 mark. Thornton directed the ball into the top left half of the goal to beat the Indians’ keeper. The Cavaliers outshot Newton 15-2 in the second half and 25-5 for the game. “I thought we played well the whole game,” Lehman coach Tom Thornton said. “Their keeper played well and kept us at two goals. But I told the kids to keep playing hard and good things would happen. We eventually found the net just enough to win.” Lehman goes to 2-1 on the season while Newton drops to 1-3-1.
