Ex-Ohio official sentenced in child porn case COLUMBUS (AP) — A former high-ranking Ohio Department of Education official was sentenced to six months in prison and five years of court supervision after pleading guilty to a single count of possession of child pornography. The sentencing against John T. Childs, the department’s former chief financial officer and chief operating officer, came Friday in federal court in Columbus. Childs’ attorney Joseph Scott said his client’s plea agreement included the six-month binding sentence. However, Scott said, he believes Childs would not have

received this sentence had the case being tried at the state level. “It’s not fair,” Scott said. “The federal system is totally unfair, the guidelines are out of whack and they need to be revised.” U.S. District Court Judge James Graham also ordered Childs, 48, to register as a sex offender while on supervised release. Childs computer will be monitored with software per the judge’s ruling. Childs, who pleaded guilty in April, was fired Nov. 2 after the agency was provided evidence related to a State Highway Patrol investigation.

A charge made public in April said Childs knowingly possessed images of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Childs had 11 images of child pornography on his desktop computer at home when a search warrant was executed in August, according to court records. Scott had said his client agreed to plead guilty because of a government offer that couldn’t be passed up. The Education Department says Childs worked on the agency’s financial side, never had an educator’s license, and was not in contact with children as a state official.

Kidnapper says police missed chance in 2004 By REGINA GARCIA CANO Associated Press

office on behalf of Castro’s family. In the recording of his interrogation following his May arrest, Castro, handcuffed and dressed in dark clothes, is asked about suicidal thoughts. A search of Castro’s home had turned up a 2004 confession note in which he wrote he wanted “to put an end” to his life. “And what about suicide? You still?” an investigator asked him. “I just want to crash through that window,” Castro answered. Castro committed suicide using a bedsheet despite his placement in protective custody, which involves checks every 30 minutes. He had been taken off suicide watch while in county jail. The state has launched two probes related to Castro, Ohio prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said. One looks into the suicide, and the other examines whether Castro received proper medical and mental health care leading up to his death.

been challenged to incorporate a “student success agenda,” calling for higher rates of student retention, success and graduation. Edison is committed to aligning student success with future opportunities for continued career success. To this end, the college has recently instituted a Linking and Learning initiative, in which the board of trustees hold meetings off-campus at industry locations such as Upper Valley Medical Center, Emerson Climate Technologies, Honda of America, and Midmark. These meetings have allowed Edison to develop stronger relationships with local business and industry leaders, increase knowledge of their respective industries, and align curriculum with industry needs to provide qualified graduates ready for employment. Included in the comprehensive nature of Edison’s mission is to provide educational pathways to prepare area high school student for higher education including providing opportunities for high school juniors and seniors to participate in dual enrollment courses at their high

school or attend at one of Edison’s campuses via the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program and receive both high school and college credits for their studies. Further, Edison provides opportunities for its current students to transfer to area and regional universities. Edison has established numerous articulation agreements in the areas of business, engineering, education, and nursing, to name a few, that ensure graduates seamless entry into a baccalaureate program. For all of the college’s existence, Edison has focused on providing the learning opportunities that enable and empower citizens, commerce, and communities in Darke, Miami, and Shelby counties. Edison will continue that commitment and strive daily to provide “A personal experience, a rewarding education” to all of our students and to be a resource for all the communities it serves.

claim that there was a missed opportunity to catch him after DeJesus disappeared. The recording shows the former schoolbus driver eating a slice of pizza and later pacing the room during a reportedly fourhour interrogation in which he told police he had used victim Amanda Berry’s cell phone to call her mother and say she was alive. “I think I said something … that I have her daughter and that she’s OK, and that she’s my wife now — something like that, you know, probably not the exact words,” he told investigators. Castro also describes what he considered a close call: a girlfriend spotted a television on in a room occupied by victim Michelle Knight. Castro told police that made him think he might be caught. Castro, 53, was a month into his life sentence when he hanged himself in his prison cell Tuesday night. A funeral home picked up his body Friday from the Franklin County Coroner’s

TOLEDO — Human remains found in the rafters of a garage are likely that of a toddler last seen about three months ago inside a house on the same property, police said Friday. Investigators said they found the remains Thursday inside a box that was behind other containers and piles of trash in the detached garage. An autopsy conducted Friday was inconclusive, and DNA tests will be needed to determine if the remains are of 19-month-old Elaina Steinfurth, a county coroner said. Investigators, though, were confident that what they feared was true. “We found what we believe may be baby Elaina,” said Toledo Police Chief Derrick Diggs. The home and the garage where the box was located belong to the family of a man who had been dating the girl’s mother. Both the mother, Angela Steinfurth, and her nowestranged boyfriend, Steven King II, are in jail and accused of obstructing justice. No charges have been filed since the remains were discovered. Steinfurth and her two daughters stayed with King at his family’s home on June 1, investigators said. The girl’s father went to the residence to pick up his two daughters the next day, but only Elaina’s 4-year-old sister could be found. Investigators have said Steinfurth knew Elaina had been seriously injured and didn’t seek medical help. They would not say what type of injuries the toddler had or who caused them. Steinfurth has been in jail since mid-June. Her attorney, Jane Roman, declined to comment on Friday. King was charged in July with lying to investigators From page 2 about the child’s disappearance.

On this date: In 1533, England’s Queen Elizabeth I was born in Greenwich. In 1812, the Battle of Borodino took place as French troops clashed with Russian forces outside Moscow. (The battle, ultimately won by Russia, was commemorated by composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky with his “1812 Overture.”) In 1825, the Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution, bade farewell to President John Quincy Adams at the White House. In 1892, James J. Corbett knocked out John L. Sullivan to win the world heavyweight crown in New Orleans in a fight conducted under the Marquess of Queensberry rules. In 1907, the British liner RMS Lusitania set out from Liverpool, England, on its maiden voyage, arriving six days later in New York. In 1940, Nazi Germany began its eight-month blitz of Britain during World War II with the first air attack on London. In 1943, a fire at the Gulf Hotel, a rooming house in Houston, claimed 55 lives. In 1964, the controversial “Daisy” commercial, an ad for President Lyndon B. Johnson’s election campaign featuring a girl plucking flower petals followed by a nuclear explosion, aired on NBCTV. In 1968, feminists protested outside the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, N.J. (The pageant crown went to Miss Illinois Judith Ford.) In 1977, the Panama Canal treaties, calling for the U.S. to eventually turn over control of the waterway to Panama, were signed in Washington by President Jimmy Carter and Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos (toh-REE’-hohs). In 1986, Desmond Tutu was installed as the first black to lead the Anglican Church in southern Africa. In 1996, rapper Tupac Shakur was shot and mortally wounded on the Las Vegas Strip; he died six days later. Ten years ago: In a speech to the nation on Iraq, President George W. Bush said he was asking Congress for $87 billion to fight terrorism and cautioned Americans that the struggle would “take time and require sacrifice.” Yasser Arafat tapped the Palestinian parliament speaker, Ahmed Qureia (AHK’mehd kuh-RAY’-uh), to take over as prime minister following the resignation of Mahmoud Abbas (mahk-MOOD’ ah-BAHS’). In the men’s singles final at the U.S. Open, Andy Roddick beat Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-3, 7-6 (2), 6-3. BritainIreland rallied to win the Walker Cup for an unprecedented third straight time. Singer-songwriter Warren Zevon died in Los Angeles at age 56. Five years ago: Troubled mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed in government conservatorship. Hurricane Ike roared across low-lying islands in the Atlantic as a Category 4 storm. Serena Williams outlasted Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 7-5 to win her third U.S. Open championship and ninth Grand Slam title. Hall of Fame basketball coach Don Haskins died in El Paso, Texas, at age 78.

Tired chickens find new homes

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Their egg-laying days behind them, some 1,200 Northern California chickens are heading for a cozy retirement on the East Coast, where they will live outside of cages and have plenty of room to spread their wings. The Sacramento Bee reports that an anonymous $50,000 donation is funding Operation Chicken Airlift, which will send the hens on a cross-country cargo flight to upstate New York on Wednesday evening. From there the white Leghorn chickens will be ferried to different sanctuaries. Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in New York, where 200 of the birds will end up, is providing perches, grass and even a wooded area where they can roam. Laying hens are generally too lean for human consumption and are usually slaughtered after they stop providing eggs.

San Antonio adopts disputed gay rights measure By PAUL J. WEBER Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio’s leaders on Thursday approved anti-bias protections for gay and transgender residents, over the disapproval of top Texas Republicans and religious conservatives who packed a City Council hearing and occasionally shamed supporters for comparing the issue to the civil rights movement. The 8-3 City Council vote in favor of the ordinance was a victory for gay rights advocates and for Democratic Mayor Julian Castro, a top surrogate of President Barack Obama. Castro has called the ordinance overdue in the nation’s seventhlargest city, where there is a stronger current of traditionalism and conservatism than other major Texas cities that already have similar gay rights protections. San Antonio joins nearly 180 other U.S. cities that have nondiscrimination ordinances that prohibit bias based on sexual orientation or gender identity, according to the Human Rights Campaign. “This ordinance is about saying there are no second-class citizens in San Antonio,” Castro said. Supporters in red shirts and opponents in blue sat on opposite sides of the ornate council chamber Thursday. Church leaders vowed petitions to recall council members, and the shouts of protesters outside City Hall often carried through the stone walls of the century-old building. More than 700 people registered to speak Wednesday during a marathon session of citizen testimony that stretched past midnight. Just a few hours later, 100 people signed up Thursday morning to get in a final word before the vote. Dee Villarubia, 67, said she’s a former Air Force officer whose landlord at a San Antonio apartment evicted her two years ago because she is gay. “When I say the pledge of allegiance, I say ‘justice for some’ because there’s an asterisk that means not me,” Villarubia said. “Today, I would take that asterisk away and finally say ‘justice for

all.’” The local measure roiled conservatives nationwide and was opposed by big-name Republicans, including U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. Abbott, a Republican who is seeking the governor’s office, predicted a lawsuit over religious freedoms, though he has not said the state will challenge the ordinance. Attention intensified after City Councilwoman Elisa Chan was caught on tape calling homosexuality “disgusting” and arguing that gays should not be allowed to adopt. Chan has defended her comments. “Just because I disagree with the lifestyle of the LGBT community doesn’t mean I dislike them,” Chan said before the vote. “Similarly, just because one opposes this ordinance, does not mean one is for discrimination.” San Antonio City Attorney Michael Bernard told the council the ordinance would apply to most city contracts and contrac-

tors. It prohibits council members from discriminating in their official capacity and forbids workers in public accommodation jobs, such as at restaurants or hotels, from refusing to serve customers based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. Opponents say the ordinance — which takes effect immediately — would stifle religious expression and does not have the support of most of the city’s residents. “The problem I have is that you criminalize us if we speak our faith,” said Marc Longoria, 42, a pastor at My Father’s House Church. “We are Christians all the time. We don’t have an on and off switch.” One side of the room would erupt in cheers or give a standing ovation depending on the remarks toward the 11-member council. Some turned around to address their opponents in the audience directly. “My parents and my grandparents rode the back of the bus,” said Sylvia Villarreal, who urged

the council to vote no. “And I say shame on them for comparing this to civil rights.” The measure passed by the council amends protections already in place for discrimination based on race or gender. Victories for gay rights advocates have been elusive in the Republican-controlled Texas Capitol. They’ve had more success on a local level: Houston has a lesbian mayor, and Austin offers health benefits for samesex couples. Dallas, Houston, Austin, Fort Worth and El Paso are among the Texas cities that already have anti-bias ordinances of varying scope. Conservative pushback in San Antonio was notable coming on the turf of Castro, a rising star who delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention last year. The opposition in his backyard was a weed in Castro’s narrative that San Antonio embraces the kind of political values that will soon spread statewide and turn Texas blue.

Zimmerman’s wife seeks life insurance policy By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated Press

SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman’s wife is asking that he pay for a permanent life insurance policy with her named as the beneficiary, according to a divorce petition made public Friday. Shellie Zimmerman said in the petition that her husband should pay the premiums on the policy since he “has the financial ability to obtain such life insurance at reasonable rates.” She also asked for custody of the couple’s 2-year-old Rottweiler, Oso, and 8-yearold Leroy, a mixed-breed dog. They have no children. Shellie Zimmerman, 26, is seeking an equal distribution of their checking accounts, trusts, partnerships and any unknown assets, and asked that a judge prevent him from selling off any property.

Among the unknown assets is any money George Zimmerman may get from a defamation lawsuit he has filed against NBC. The couple, who have been married since November 2007, separated a month after Zimmerman was acquitted in July of any crime for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012. The Zimmermans aren’t living together as husband and wife, said the petition, which suggested Shellie may seek legal fees from her husband for the divorce. “The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” the petition said. In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” that aired Friday, Zimmerman said her husband left her with “a bunch of pieces of broken glass” after the acquittal. She said he only stayed

in their house three or four nights since the trial ended and that they even tried counseling. But she moved out Aug. 13. “I have a selfish husband and I think George is all about George,” she said. Last week, Shellie Zimmerman pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor perjury charge for lying about the couple’s finances during a bail hearing following her husband’s arrest after Martin’s shooting in Sanford, Fla. George Zimmerman, 29, said he acted in self-defense when he killed Martin and the polarizing case opened up national discussions on selfdefense laws and race. Martin was black. Zimmerman has a white father and Hispanic mother. Shellie Zimmerman was sentenced to a year’s probation and 100 hours of community

service. Her husband did not attend the sentencing hearing in the Sanford courtroom. “I stood by my husband through everything,” she told ABC, “and I kind of feel like he left me with a bunch of pieces of broken glass that I’m supposed to now assemble and make a life.” Shellie Zimmerman says her husband was verbally abusive toward her and that he has been making what she considers “reckless decisions.” She didn’t specify what those decisions were. “In my opinion, he feels more invincible” since his acquittal, she added. She said the timing seems right to begin a new life. “I have supported him for so long and neglected myself for too long,” Shellie Zimmerman said. “And I feel like I’m finally starting to feel empowered again.”

Arizona woman on death row awaits release, retrial By BOB CHRISTIE and BRIAN SKOLOFF Associated Press

PHOENIX — An Arizona woman who has spent more than two decades on death row awaited her release Friday, a day after a judge ruled that there was no direct evidence linking her to her son’s death other than a purported confession to a detective whose honesty has been questioned. Debra Milke has not been exonerated, but a judge granted her a $250,000 bond Thursday, meaning she could go free while preparing for a new trial in the case that made her one of Arizona’s most reviled

inmates. Milke was convicted in the death of her 4-year-old son, Christopher, who was allegedly killed for a $5,000 insurance payout. His mother was accused of dressing the boy in his favorite outfit in December 1989 and telling him he was going to see Santa Claus at a mall before handing him over to two men who took the child into the desert and shot him. She has been imprisoned since 1990. Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Milke would probably be released Friday. But the exact timing remained unclear at midday.

A defense lawyer told the judge last week that Milke would be living in a Phoenix-area home purchased by supporters if she is released. Milke, whose mother was a German who married a U.S. Air Force military policeman in Berlin in the early 1960s, has drawn strong support from citizens of that nation, which has no death penalty. Frankie Aue, a former Berlin resident who now lives in Phoenix, runs a website for Milke supporters and has attended recent court hearings. The site requests donations through both German and Swiss accounts to pay for efforts to free her.

Lebanon From page 1 The step had been under consideration since last week, when President Barack Obama said he was contemplating military action against the Syrian government for its alleged chemical weapons attack last month that killed hundreds near Damascus. “Lebanese government authorities are not able to guarantee protection for citizens or visitors to the country should violence erupt suddenly. Access to borders, airports, roads, and seaports can be interrupted with little or no warning,” a State Department statement said.

Shortly after the announcement, about 150 people drawn from several pro-Syrian political groups gathered for a peaceful protest near the U.S. Embassy compound north of Beirut, pledging larger rallies in case of a U.S. attack in Syria. Some of them had painted their hands red, symbolizing blood. “The American Embassy is an operations room for the war on Syria,” read one banner. “Your rockets and fleets do not scare us,” read another. Dozens of riot police in full gear stood on guard, confining the protesters to a square on

a road leading to the heavily fortified embassy in the suburb of Awkar. The small protest reflected the potential for a surge in violence in case of military action, not just in Lebanon but across the region. Iranian-backed Shiite militias in Iraq threatened to retaliate against Washington’s interests inside Iraq if the U.S. goes ahead with strikes against Syria, according to Iraqi security officials and militants themselves. Cleric Wathiq al-Batat, who leads the Mukhtar Army, a shadowy Iranian-backed militia in Iraq, said his forces are

preparing for a strong reaction against the interests of the U.S. and other countries that take part in any Syria strike. He claimed that militants have selected hundreds of potential targets, which could include both official American sites and companies “associated with the Americans.” “There is a good level of coordination with Iran on this issue and I cannot reveal more. But I can say that there will be a strong response,” he told The Associated Press. “Each armed group will have duties to carry out.”

Vets get free tix to Dayton shows DAYTON — The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance (DPAA) presents its first Military Appreciation Program for active-duty military members and veterans in the Miami Valley area by offering 100 complimentary tickets to 20 different 2013-2014 performances from Oct. 11 thru Dec. 31, 2013. Sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, the program gives a total of 2,000 tickets to performances by the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic. Visit for more information. “This is our way of thanking our military personnel and their families for their continued service to our great country,” said DPAA CEO and President Paul Helfrich. “It’s also a great opportunity for military members and veterans who may not be familiar with Dayton’s won-

derful performing arts.” Tickets are available beginning today at Ticket Center Stage located in the Wintergarden of the Schuster Center at 1 W. Second Street in downtown Dayton. Box office hours are Monday thru Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and two hours prior to performances. One pair of tickets per military household for this program is available for pickup in person with a military or veterans ID. No phone orders will be accepted. “Booz Allen is a proud presenting sponsor of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance’s Military Appreciation Program,” said Rick Holley, vice-president, Booz Allen Hamilton. “Every year, Booz Allen employees volunteer their time and services to activities and events that support the military community.

Newscast expands show to one hour DAYTON — 2 NEWS at 10 on Dayton’s CW, the Miami Valley’s No. 1 most watched newscast at 10 p.m. and a news partner of the Sidney Daily News, is expanding from 30 minutes to one hour beginning Monday. For the second consecutive ratings period, 2 NEWS at 10 on Dayton’s CW won the key 18-49 and 25-54 demographics. This continues to demonstrate the shift of viewers counting on 2 NEWS Working For You for their local news and weather from morning until night. “The main reason for expanding 2 NEWS at 10 on Dayton’s CW to one hour is due to audience demand,” said Joe Abouzeid, WDTN and WBDT president and general manager. “We listen to our viewers, and it was clear to us that they wanted more local news and weather at a time that’s convenient to them.” 2 NEWS began airing newscasts on Dayton’s CW at 10 p.m. in August 2007. “Expanding 2 NEWS at 10 on Dayton’s CW to one hour allows the 2 NEWS team to bolster our coverage of breaking news, 2 NEWS investigations, and the best weather coverage in the market,” said Denise Eck, 2 NEWS News Director. “Our team is committed to working for our viewers and we’re excited to give them more local news and weather.”

2014 Accord Hybrid

Honda introduces new hybrid TORRANCE, Calif. — With the first models rolling off the Marysville, Ohio assembly line Friday, the all-new 2014 Accord Hybrid (http:// accord-hybrid/) will carry an EPA fuel economy rating of 50 mpg in city driving, making it the new leader in gasoline fuel-economy ratings among 4-door sedans. Set to go on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide later this year, the 2014 Accord Hybrid’s city fueleconomy rating is three miles per gallon higher than the closest segment competitor and its calculated driving range of 673 miles is more than 46 miles farther than any vehicle in its segment. “Even before it hits showrooms this fall, the Accord Hybrid is already surpassing the competi-

tion and claiming segment leadership,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda. “For customers looking for a 50 mpg rated 4-door sedan, there is no other choice than the 2014 Accord Hybrid.” With EPA fuel-economy ratings of 50 mpg city / 45 mpg highway / 47 mpg combined, the 2014 Accord Hybrid combines the sophisticated exterior styling and spacious interior packaging of the Accord Sedan with a highly efficient two-motor hybrid system from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology advanced powertrain series. The Accord Hybrid joins an already fuelefficient Accord lineup that includes the EPArated 36 mpg highway

4-cylinder Accord Sedan and the Accord Plug-in Hybrid, EPA-rated at 115 MPGe combined in electric-only mode. The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is the first Honda hybrid vehicle produced in Ohio, at the company’s Marysville Auto Plant, and joins the Greensburg, Indianabuilt Civic Hybrid as the second Honda hybrid model built in the U.S. Honda invested $18.8 million in a 94,000-squarefoot expansion of the Marysville Auto Plant, along with the addition of 50 new full-time jobs to handle the special processes specific to the production of this advanced hybrid model. “With more than 30 years of experience producing the Accord in Marysville, our associates have continued to

advance our capabilities, and the new 50-mpg rated Accord Hybrid is a very special milestone in our history of innovation in Ohio,” said Rob May, Plant Manager of the Marysville Auto Plant. “Production of this class-leading hybrid represents an important achievement by our associates as they create new value for Honda customers using advanced manufacturing skills and new, cuttingedge technologies.” Including the expansion at the Marysville Auto Plant, in the past three years Honda has invested nearly $2.7 billion in innovations to and expansion of its North American operations, with more than $1 billion spent in Ohio alone.

Accelerant launches State helps train Ohio’s workforce for Dayton-area entrepreneurs DAYTON — Entrepreneurial activity in the Dayton Region is taking on a new name. Last week, the Dayton Development Coalition announced it will launch Accelerant as its new brand for its entrepreneurial initiatives. “We’re starting something big in the Dayton Region, literally,” Joel Ivers, vice president of Entrepreneurial Development for the Dayton Development Coalition said about Accelerant. The brand name was chosen because it represents acceleration, and the entrepreneurial team wanted to place an emphasis on communicating the action of moving forward. “Everything about the brand is about growth and movement. If you look closely at the logo it is a ‘greater than’ symbol with the letter ‘a’ included,” Ivers said. “It all represents acceleration, and we want entrepreneurs in the Dayton Region to know that the ecosystem that exists will be an accelerant to their ideas, helping them to really start something big.” Accelerant will be a resource tool for Dayton Region entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs who submit ideas or requests for assistance through Accelerant will be immediately routed to an organization that can best serve an entrepreneur’s specific needs. Accelerant will connect entrepreneurs with the right people and programs to get ideas off the ground. “The county has been a big supporter of working with entrepreneurs and the DDC for a number of years,” said Erik Collins, director of Community and Economic Development for Montgomery County. “If you look at the pillars of good economic development it’s built on good business retention and expansion efforts, business attraction, and growing start-up business. By doing all three, a region can position itself to have a stronger economy. We are excited about this new brand and working with entrepreneurs in the community to grow them into something big.” Entrepreneurs wanting to submit their ideas and contact the entrepreneurial staff can visit www.

Utility payment scam resurfaces; customers urged to contact Vectren if approached DAYTON — Vectren is warning customers of a multistate bill payment scam that is resurfacing this summer in scattered locations throughout the United States As part of the scam, customers receive an unsolicited phone call from a fraudulent individual claiming to be a representative for the utility company. The individual warns that the utility will disconnect the customer’s energy service if the customer

fails to make an immediate payment — usually within an hour. Cu s t o m e rs a re instructed to purchase a prepaid debit card — at times referring to a “Green Dot” credit card — from a local store and call the fraudulent individual back to supposedly make a payment to the utility company. Upon calling back, the customer is asked to provide the receipt number and PIN number from the prepaid debit card, giving

the individual instant access to the card’s funds and the ability to immediately drain its balance. “Vectren would never require a customer to purchase a prepaid debit or credit card in order to make a payment of any type,” said Colleen Ryan, president of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio. “We’re urging any customer who is approached in this fashion to contact us immediately to verify the legitimacy of the

request and discuss his/her account status.” Utilize Vectren. com’s live chat option or call 800-227-1376 to reach Vectren’s contact center, which is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Customers can also report the scam at the Better Business Bureau website,

Jackets come up short in OT, 28-21 BELLEFONTAINE — A furious rally in the final five minutes of regulation by the Sidney Yellow Jackets forced overtime, but they couldn’t answer Bellefontaine’s score and lost a 28-21 heartbreaker in non-league high school football action here Friday night. The Jackets are now 1-1 on the season and host West Carrollton Friday. “That’s as hard as we’ve played two weeks in a row,” said Sidney head coach Adam Doenges. “We played hard but we didn’t play smart, and that’s not all on the players. It’s 59 players and 10 coaches. But I’m proud of how hard the kids played.” Sidney led 7-6 after a quarter thank to a 15-yard pass from Jordan Fox to Darryl McNeal that opened the scoring with 7:23 left in the first quarter. The score stayed that way at the half, but the Chieftains scored in the third quarter and got the first score of the final period to take a 21-7 lead over the Jackets with one quarter to play. It was still that score past the halfway point of the final period, but the Jackets created a big break, forcing a fumble that Jalen Herd fell on in the endzone for a touchdown to cut the lead to 21-14 with 5:16 left in the game. The Jacket defense held and got the ball back for the offense, but time was running out. Then with just :44 remaining in regulation, Sidney went to its bag of tricks and called for the hook-and-lateral. Fox hit 6-foot-4 sophomore Tyren Cox, who then

lateraled the pigskin to running back Eric Barnes trailing the play. It went for 44 yards, and the extrapoint kick knotted the score and forced overtime. Bellefontaine got the ball first and scored to open the extra session, but it appeared the Jackets had answered when McNeal caught a touchdown pass. But a costly holding penalty deep in the backfield brought the play back and moved the line of scrimmage all the way back to the 31. The Jackets were unable to overcome the penalty and Bellefontaine escaped with the victory. Score by quarters: Sidney 7 0 0 14 0—21 Bellefontaine 67 0 8 7 7—28

Scoring summary: Sidney — McNeal, 15-yard pass from Fox (Dean kick) Bellefontaine — Boy, 35-yard pass from Kennedy (kick failed) Bellefontaine — Baughman, 1-yard run (Gorham, pass from Kennedy) Bellefontaine — Hughes, 12-yard run (Schmid kick) Sidney — Herd, recovered fumble in endzone (kick failed) Sidney — Barnes, 44-yard score onhook-andlateral (Yates, pass from Fox) SDN Photo | Luke Gronneberg Bellefontaine — Baughman, 1-yar score (Schmid Sidney’s Scott Stewart runs the ball against the Bellefontaine Chieftains at high school kick) football action at Bellefontaine Friday.

Pass-happy Cavs beat Minster Lehman and Minster filled the air with footballs Friday night, combining for 825 yards passing. But the difference in a 33-18 victory for the Cavaliers was the consistency of the passing attack behind the strong and accurate right arm of Nick Rourke. He was 15-for-22 in the first half for 231 yards, 13-for-22 for 226 yards in the final two periods. By contrast, Minster quarterback Josh Nixon had an amazing first half, hitting 13-for-22 for 309 yards. But the Cavaliers kept him in check in the second half, 7-for-21 for 59 yards. The Cavs even their record at 1-1 on the year heading into a lengthy trip to London Friday night for a 7:30 game. Minster, meanwhile, is in a precarious position, falling to 0-2 before even embarking on Midwest Athletic Conference play. The Wildcats open conference play Friday with the short trip down the road to rival New Bremen. Despite the two touchdown victory, the Cavaliers found themselves down 12-0 in the early going. After two punt exchanges to start the game, Nixon hit Wolf for a 75-yard touchdown on a short route, just two plays into Minster’s third possession of the game. Then just moments later, Lehman fumbled the ball away and Minster took over on the Cavs’ 25. On third-and-goal from the one, Sam Dues punched it in for a 12-0 lead, the two-point conversion failing, like the PAT kick did after the first score. It was crucial for Lehman to answer and the Cavs did, with Rourke throwing for 27 yards on first down from his own 31 to set the tone. He completed four passes on the drive, and on a fourth-and-two at the Minster 10, Greg Spearman took it in for the score. The kick was good to cut it to 12-7 with :34 left in the opening period. After Minster had a score taken off the board on a fairly obvious offensive pass interference call in the endzone,

Dues scored from the two for an 18-13 Minster lead, but the Cavs answered right back on a bit of “trickeration.” On third-and-9 at the Minster 46, Rourke hit Max Schutt, who lateraled to Spearman.The play worked to perfection and gave the Cavs the lead at the half at 20-13. Rourke came out with a vengeance in the second half and put on a clinic, completing his first eight passes. The very first one was on the opening play of the second half, when he found Spearman on a short route, and the junior scatback turned it into a 76-yard score with just eight seconds gone off the third-quarter clock. After Minster fumbled the ball away in the endzone on fourth-and-goal from the one, Lehman took over at the 20 and scored in eight plays, overcoming two penalties during the drive. Rourke found Spearman again, this time for 13 yards with 2:32 left in the third period, making it 33-18. Rourke finished with 457 yards passing for the Cavs. And Spearman, in addition to his four scores, also had an interception. S core by quarters : Minster 12 6 0 0—18 Lehman 7 13 13 0—33

Anna suffers first setback, 45-35 BROOKVILLE — Anna tried to rally but the halftime deficit was just too much to overcome in a 45-35 loss to Brookville Friday night in non-league high school football action here. The Rockets, 1-1, host Fort Recovery in their first Midwest Athletic Conference game of the season Friday. Anna couldn’t get untracked in the first half, the Blue Devils leading 7-0 after a quarter, then tacking on 17 more in the second period for a 24-0 halftime lead.

The Rockets woke up in the third quarter, though, scoring 21 points, including an 88-yard kickoff return by Matthew Bruce. But they allowed two more scores in the final period to go down to their first defeat of the season. Anna running back Christian Williams scored four touchowns on runs of 5, 4, 11 and 11.

Kazmaier has big night, Redskins rout Cardinals FORT LORAMIE — For the second week in a row, the Fort Loramie Redskins allowed the opposition to return the opening kickoff for a touchdown. And for the second week in a row, the Redskins responded right away, and went on to post a victory. This week was much easier than last, when they had to score with 15 seconds left to beat Minster. Friday night in their home opener, the Redskins broke from a 14-14 tie with 21 points in the second quarter and 28 in the third to roll to a 62-20 victory over the New Bremen Cardinals in non-league high school football action. The win puts the Redskins 2-0, both againt Midwest Athletic Conference opponents. They will go for three in a row Friday night at home against Defiance Tinora. New Bremen drops to 0-2 and will take on backyard rival Minster Friday at home, with both squads looking for their first wins of the season. After last week, Loramie head coach Matt Burgbacher knew exactly what to say to his team after Bremen’s Carson Manger returned the opening kickoff 75 yards for a 6-0 lead. “I just looked at them and said ‘hey, we’ve been here before’,” said Burgbacher. “That’s two weeks in a row we’ve come right back and answered with a score.” The Redskins came out throwing the ball and it led to a big night for quarterback Tyler Kazmaier. He threw for 272 yards and four touchdowns in the Loramie rout, and his 38-yarder to Craig Fullenkamp to open the scoring erased the Bremen kickoff return. He and Fullenkamp hooked up again in the first quarter, from 53-yards out, for a 14-6 lead, but the Cardinals came back to tie the game up when Tristin Hoffmaster capped a good Cardinal drive with a 1-yard run. Manger added a twopoint conversion to tie the game up after a quarter. But the equality ended there. The Redskins exploded for seven unanswered scores, three of them coming in the second quarter. Delaunte Thornton scored on runs of 15 and 20 yards, and sandwiched in between was a 59-yard scoring strike from Kazmaier to Logan McGee. “Scoring 21 points in the sec-

‘Other’ QBs share stage as Browns host Dolphins

Associated Press

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden throws against the Indianapolis Colts during the first half of a preseason game in Indianapolis.

Associated Press

Ryan Tannehill looks to pass during the first half of an NFL preseason football game against the Tampa Bay Bucs in Miami Gardens, Fla.

CLEVELAND (AP) — They were the “other” rookie quarterbacks last season. Maybe it’s Brandon Weeden and Ryan Tannehill’s turn to shine. They were members of a star-studded class that included Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson, who each led teams to the playoffs in their first NFL seasons. Weeden and Tannehill labored last year for the Browns and Miami Dolphins, two franchises counting on their second-year QBs to make them contenders in 2013. On Sunday, they’ll go head-to-head in the season opener, but it’s not the first time they’ve played. In college, Weeden led Oklahoma State to two wins over Tannehill and Texas A&M. However, one of those came before Tannehill converted from wide receiver to quarterback, though Weeden might count the victory anyway. In fact, Weeden was 5-0 against Tannehill, Luck and Griffin in college. So far, he’s 0-1 against those guys in the NFL, a mark he can even this week. “I want to beat them playing checkers,” he said. Weeden and Tannehill both threw for over 3,000 yards last season. They’re similar in size, and both have highpowered arms and are prototypical pocket passers. Also, both QBs — fairly or unfairly — will forever be judged because they were drafted the same year as Luck, Griffin and Wilson. Dolphins coach Joe Philbin just wants Tannehill to be himself. “What I’m looking for from Ryan this year is improved decision-making, better ball accuracy and playmaking abilities at critical times in a game,” he said. “Beyond that, I’m not concerned about how other people compare him to Andrew Luck, RG3 or anybody else. I am concerned about how well he plays for the Miami Dolphins, though.” With the Dolphins traveling to Cleveland for the opener, here are five things to keep an eye on other than the two QBs: OPENING WOES: Season openers have been a nightmare for both teams, but especially the Browns. Since returning to the league in 1999, Cleveland is 1-13 in Week 1, an abysmal statistic made worse since the team is 1-12 at home. The Browns’ lone win came in 2004, a 20-3 victory over Baltimore. The Dolphins, meanwhile, are just 1-6 since 2005. It’s imperative for the Browns to get off to a good start under new coach Rob Chudzinski, and with road games at Baltimore and Minnesota the next two weeks, 0-1 could turn into 0-3 quickly. “We have to get over that hump,” cornerback Joe Haden said. “It’s not going to be, ‘OK, let’s get the next one. Let’s get the next one.’ We have to win

this first game.” FLYING FISH: The Dolphins added much-needed speed and big-play potential to their offense, signing wide receiver Mike Wallace as a free agent in March. Wallace, who scored 32 touchdowns the past four seasons with Pittsburgh, gives Tannehill a down-field threat and a nice complementary piece to Miami’s passing game, which totaled just 13 TDs last season. “It’s always a major impact when you can bring someone in with a rare skill set, that loves football, works hard and really provides special play capabilities,” said Dolphins wideout Brian Hartline. “He brings something to the table that not too many people in the NFL can do.” 3. RICHARDSON’S WORKLOAD: The Browns will lean on Trent Richardson in 2013. The second-year back may be the most important player on Cleveland’s roster. Richardson rushed for 950 yards last season, playing half of it with two broken ribs. And while new offensive coordinator Norv Turner favors a vertical passing game, his offense is rooted in the run, and Richardson could get 300 rushes this season. That’s fine with Richardson, who knows that following the loss of running backs Dion Lewis and Montario Hardesty to injuries and roster cuts, he’s being counted on to carry the load. To do that, he must stay healthy. “This year I’m not looking towards no injury, no broken fingernails, nothing,” Richardson said. “I know my whole season is based on being healthy.” 4. FAR FROM PERFECT: The 1972 Miami Dolphins, who went 17-0, finally got to make their long overdue trip to the White House this summer. While this year’s squad is unlikely to win the Super Bowl, the roster has been overhauled and expectations are high in South Florida. But with 17 new players on the 53-man roster, including all nine draft picks, patience will be at a premium. Youth, though, won’t be an excuse. “It’s put up or shut up time for us,” said offensive guard Richie Incognito. “There’s no learning curve.” 5. NO FLASH: The Browns will be without one of their best offensive weapons, as wide receiver Josh Gordon is suspended for the first two games for violating the NFL’s drug policy. Without Gordon, the Browns will count on Davone Bess, who spent the previous five seasons with Miami, and second-year speedster Travis Benjamin to put pressure on Miami’s secondary. “Josh is a guy who’s capable of making big plays,” Turner said. “So if we’re going to make those, we’re going to have to get them from someone else. Those guys just have to step up and make the plays that are there for them.”

Bears, Bengals to be tested from start LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Jay Cutler, get ready for Geno Atkins. Andy Dalton, brace for Julius Peppers. The Chicago Bears and Cincinnati Bengals figure to be tested right from the start when they meet in the season opener at Soldier Field. Both teams boast defenses that ranked among the best a year ago, and for those wondering how the Bears’ offense stacks up under new coach Marc Trestman, this figures to be a good barometer. “I think we have a high ceiling,” tight end Martellus Bennett said. “But there are a lot of places with high ceilings. Right now we’re just an offense trying to figure out what we’re going to be. So this will be our first chance to go against somebody else who really counts and really matters. I don’t think we have our identity yet. I think we’re going to figure out our identity during this journey. So we’ll figure out if we’re a run-first team, a pass-first team. We have no clue.” For now, the Bears are something of an unknown, particularly on offense. They brought in Trestman to replace the fired Lovie Smith with the idea that he could inject some pizazz into a stagnant offense and get Cutler to reach his potential. How that will play out is a big question

mark. Trestman is a head coach for the first time in the league after leading the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes the past five seasons following a long run as an NFL and college assistant. He has a history of success with quarterbacks from Bernie Kosar to Steve Young to Rich Gannon. Now, he’s trying to do what past offensive Bears coordinators Ron Turner, Mike Martz and Mike Tice could not — get the most out of Chicago’s talented QB. To that end, Chicago also brought in four new starters on the offensive line and added Bennett at tight end, beefing up the protection for Cutler and giving him another weapon to go with star receiver Brandon Marshall and running back Matt Forte. The Bears did that after winning 10 games but missing the playoffs for the fifth time in six years. For all those moves on offense, not much has changed on defense. Sure, Brian Urlacher is gone, but the rest of the core from a group that has consistently ranked among the best remains intact. Not much has changed scheme-wise, either. Dalton could have his hands full as the Bengals try to kick off a promising season on a winning note. Here are five things to watch for as the Bears and Bengals open the season. STARTING STRONG:

Associated Press

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis watches from the sidelines in the first half of an NFL preseason football game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday in Cincinnati.

The Bengals got blown out at Baltimore in last year’s opener on the way to a 10-win season and playoff loss to Houston. That’s something they’re trying to avoid this time. They’re coming off backto-back playoff appearances for the first time since 1981-82 and are a popular pick to win the AFC North, if not the conference championship. “I don’t want them to worry about any expectations positively or negatively,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “They really don’t matter. What matters is what you earn out there each and every week.” C OAC H , QB DYNAMIC: That’s the

biggest issue facing the Bears as they head into this game. The CutlerTrestman relationship has already been dissected like a frog in high school biology lab, and the season is just starting. Now, we’ll find out how this will work. The Bears are going with the West Coast offense, which should get the ball out of Cutler’s hands and, presumably, help reduce the pounding on him. Of course, there’s also that issue of his expiring contract, which just adds some more intrigue to this story. NEW LOOK IN TRENCHES: The Bears made sweeping changes to an offensive line that ranked among the league’s

worst. They brought in veteran tackle Jermon Bushrod and guard Matt Slauson on the left side and are going with a pair of rookies on the right side in first-round pick Kyle Long at guard and fifth-rounder Jordan Mills at tackle. It’ll be worth watching the rookies in this one, particularly since they’re going against a team that set a franchise record with 51 sacks last season. The only returning starter is center Roberto Garza. ALL OP TIONS AVAILABLE: Dalton will have his full complement of receivers available for the first time. Pro Bowler A.J. Green bruised his left knee in the first training camp workout and missed the first two preseason games. He was limited to three catches in the preseason. Tight end Tyler Eifert, the firstround pick out of Notre Dame, was limited by a wrist injury. He’s expected to play in two-tight end formations to take some of the coverage away from Green. OLD FACES, NEW FACES: One area of concern for the Bears is age on defense, even though Urlacher is gone. Peppers, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman are in their 30s, although they’ve shown no signs of slowing down. The Bears will also have two new starting linebackers, with Urlacher and Nick Roach no longer on the team.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an 83-year-old male in general good health. I have been taking 500 mg of niacin, three times a day since the mid-1980s. This did lower my cholesterol somewhat. My current cholesterol is LDL 91 and HDL 27. I exercise regularly, and eat a very healthy diet, so I don’t know if my good cholesterol readings are the result of niacin or diet and exercise. I have recently read articles advising against taking niacin for cholesterol control. Is it safe to continue taking this high dose of niacin? — P.H. ANSWER: Niacin (vitamin B-3) reduces the unhealthy LDL cholesterol and increases the healthy HDL cholesterol, and has been used for decades. Recent studies have cast some doubt on the ability of niacin to prevent heart disease, even though it makes cholesterol numbers better. However, the recent trials have concentrated on people already taking a statin drug, which it sounds like you are not. There was no evidence of harm to the heart from the niacin. High doses of niacin can

cause flushing, which can be extremely unpleasant, and also can raise blood sugar levels. Injury to the liver is possible, and may rarely be severe. I no longer recommend starting niacin for people who need medication treatment for high cholesterol levels, because the evidence is clear that statins are effective and safe for most people, and the effectiveness of niacin is in some doubt. However, you clearly are doing very well, and whether it is your healthy diet, your regular exercise, the niacin or, most likely, a combination that is keeping you healthy and your cholesterol good at 83, I have a hard time arguing with your success.

Would it be wrong to attempt to further the relationship, as long as it remains appropriate within the office, or should I forget it and date someone outside of work? — WORKING RELATIONSHIP IN INDIANA DEAR WORKING RELATIONSHIP: This may seem old-fashioned, but I’m not crazy about the idea of office romances. While I know they are not uncommon and it’s hard to fight mutual attraction, office romances are distracting. When the pheromones are flying, it can be extremely difficult to concentrate on the tasks at hand. And if it doesn’t work out, there can be tension, embarrassment and hard feelings in the aftermath, and that’s not good for business. DEAR ABBY: Twice in the past month I have received thank-you notes for gifts I

had given, but the wrong gift was mentioned. I usually spend a lot of time selecting just the right thing, and I take pride in my choices. I understand how something like that could happen, but I’m not sure what to do about it. Should I just keep quiet about it, or say something to the person? What would I say? I don’t want to embarrass anyone, but I know I have received gifts in the past that will forever remind me of the giver. — PICKING OUT PRESENTS IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR PICKING OUT PRESENTS: I see nothing to be gained by not alerting the person to the mistake.

At their regular meeting last evening, members of the city council approved a resolution authorizing the director of safety to sell two of the horses at the fire department. This action was taken after Fire Chief George Hume advised the members that the new motorized fire truck was in working order and fully satisfactory and there was no further need for the horses. ––––– At the first regular meeting of the Commercial club last evening, I.H. Thedieck stated that one great need in our city as a matter of economy as well as affording more fire protection, is the installation of water meters at all locations. In the hot weather people allow the water to run that they may have it cool to drink, which in winter they allow it to run to prevent freezing. It is estimated that about half the water pumped through the mains is wasted. It was felt that the matter should be called to the attention of council.

tion for relocation of State Route 47 from downtown Sidney to the Interstate 75 interchange has been prepared for the central office by Division Seven of the State Highway Department here. The favored route, it was said, will not be made known until after the State Highway Department and U.S. Bureau of Public Roads have passed on the plan and set a date for a public hearing. On the drawing boards for several months, the project calls for an expenditure of about $1,200,000, according to preliminary estimates, and involves several engineering problems.
