NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Life in lower Manhattan resembled any ordinary day on Wednesday as workers rushed to their jobs in the muggy heat, but time stood still at the World Trade Center site while families wept for loved ones who perished in the terror attacks 12 years ago. For the families, the memories of that day are still vivid, the pain still acute. Some who read the names of a beloved big brother or a cherished daughter could hardly speak through their tears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Has it really been 12 years? Or 12 days? Sometimes it feels the same,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Fox, speaking aloud to his brother, Jeffrey, who perished in the south tower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes I reach for the phone so I can call you, and we can talk about our kids like we used to do every day.â&#x20AC;?

Compassionate Care of Shelby County (CCSC) has announced in a press release that Teresa Ditmer has resigned from her position as executive director. In addition, the organization announced the appointment of Traci Milanese as its new executive director.

Ditmer From page 1 to our team. She brings great energy to the program and is ready to take on a new direction of her own,” Mascho said. “I have enjoyed meeting so many new people and I’m amazed at how much our community supports CCSC with volunteers — from those who work our front desk, to those who stuff envelopes, to physicians, nurse practitioners, RNs, medical assistants and many others. The staff at CCSC takes the initiative to assist in providing excellent patient care for our community. We are so lucky to have such a fabulous facility for Shelby County,” Milanese said. “Teresa has left us with a very well established facility to help the people of our community. We want to thank each of you who have donated your time and/or money. CCSC will continue to thrive and move forward. Our goal is still to provide our patients the best care possible and we are achieving it.” In addition, a long-time employee, Julie Fogt, has accepted the position of office manager. Fogt has worked for CCSC since 2008. “Julie brings new life to the program and knows the clinic inside and out,” Milanese said. “She is definitely a great asset to us on so many levels. I can’t say enough about Julie’s dedication to her job, family and patients. We are very excited that she decided to accept the position.” The organization is in the midst of converting its paper charts to an electronic medical records system (EMR), which will help the staff provide better care for its patients and more efficiency for staff.

Council appoints new village police dept. officer JACKSON CENTER — Jackson Center Council approved the permanent appointment of an officer to the village police department after he successfully completed a trial period. The council approved permanent appointment of Charles Wirick, commending his common sense and experience. In other business, council

heard third readings on ordinances to establish a utility policy and set a general fee schedule for village services. A third reading was also noted for resolutions passing the amounts and rates of current levies for the village. These stood as third readings without further action, with two members of council absent. Council also heard the sec-

ond reading of a resolution to approve an Efficiency Smart schedule with American Municipal Powers Inc. The Safety Committee reported the fire department had nine runs last month, up from last year. It was also noted the Firemen’s Pork Picnic will be held Sunday at the fire house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Swine breed shows to debut at 2014 fair The Shelby County Agricultural Society has voted to allow swine breed shows in the 2014 Junior Fair. During its meeting Aug. 21, Luke Snider, of the Shelby County Pork Producers, proposed the change to keep the numbers of barrows and gilts shown at the fair from dropping. The breed shows will allow each exhibitor to show up to four swine, two crossbreds and two purebreads. It was reported that the biggest problem with swine-pen assignments this year was

scratches that were not reported on time. In other business, the society: • Heard a report from Treasurer Barb Heilers that there were no problems at the gates during this year’s fair and that a full financial report of the event should be available at the September meeting. • Heard from Commissioner Tony Bornhorst that damage to fairgrounds buildings sustained during a June 2012 storm was more extensive than had been previously

reported. The roofs of the Community Foundation Hall, the block bathroom and half of the south horse barn need to be fully or partially replaced. • Heard committee reports on various aspects of the 2013 fair: Everything went well. Few problems were reported. Crowds for the Junior Fair show were some of the best in the last few years. • Tabled a motion to allow the return of the cane rack game. The issue will be discussed during the September meeting.

• Were notified by President Tim Everett that he and Randy Bensman were soliciting quotes for materials and labor to replace some fairgrounds benches. • Heard that Show Arena 1 needs new lighting. • Recognized Vice President Mitch Brautigam and Heilers for their extra efforts during the fair to cover duties normally performed by Everett and Secretary Jerry Schaffner, who were both incapacitated at the time.

later whether to seek Cordle’s release on bond before sentencing to allow him to spread his anti-drunk-driving message. “Matthew’s pleading guilty as soon as possible so that he can get his message out and express to the family how sorrow he is for what happened,” defense attorney Martin Midian said after the date was set for Cordle’s guilty plea. In a 3½-minute video posted last week, Cordle admitted he killed a man from a Columbus suburb and said he “made a mistake” when he decided to drive that night. “My name is Matthew Cordle, and on June 22, 2013, I hit and killed Vincent Canzani,” he says somberly. “This video will

Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio man who confessed in an online video to causing a fatal wrong-way crash after a night of heavy drinking will plead guilty to the crime next week, according to his attorneys. Defendant Matthew Cordle entered a preliminary plea of not guilty Wednesday in a procedural move allowing a judge to be appointed to accept a guilty plea. Cordle will plead guilty Sept. 18 to aggravated vehicular homicide to make good on his pledge to accept responsibility for the crash, his lawyers said Wednesday. They will decide

act as my confession.” After Wednesday’s hearing, Canzani’s daughter told a TV station the attention the case has gotten is forcing her to relive what happened. “Every time that anything comes up, this whole thing has made the death of my father fresh,” Canzani told WCMHTV in Columbus. “I feel like he died all over again. And all I keep hearing about is the message, and what people seem to forget is that a person is dead.” Canzani told the station that losing her father has been hard but she has a good support system. A judge didn’t allow Cordle to go ahead with a plea Tuesday, saying his lawyers

didn’t follow court procedures for first appearances. Franklin County Judge Julie Lynch also alleged the attorneys balked at coming before her because she wouldn’t promise a specific sentence, something they deny. Lynch took Cordle’s not guilty plea in a brief hearing Wednesday and set a combined $255,000 bond. Cordle will appear next week before veteran Franklin County Judge David Fais. Cordle, of Powell, another Columbus suburb, is also charged with a misdemeanor count of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He faces two to 8½ years in prison. The video was filmed Sept.

Kasich, Ohio officials launch ‘Straight A’ fund Julie Carr Smyth Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich called upon Ohio educators Wednesday to tap their creativity as the state makes available a new $250 million education innovation fund. The Republican governor joined top state education officials to launch the Straight A Fund included in Ohio’s $62 billion, twoyear state operating budget. The grant program aims to reward creative ideas that significantly boost student achievement, reduce spending or target an impressive share of resources into the classroom. Sidney City Schools Superintendent John Scheu is a member of the board. Joining Kasich at the inaugural meeting of the

fund’s governing board were State Superintendent Dick Ross and former State Superintendent Susan Zelman, who’s serving as fund director. Ohio’s budget dedicated $100 million to the fund for the fiscal year that began July 1 and $150 million in the next fiscal year. Documents outlining the application and distribution process approved Wednesday by the governing board will be available at the Ohio Department of Education’s website on Friday. Kasich selected Ross to head the nine-member board. The panel also includes Ohio House Education Chairman Gerald Stebelton, a Republican from Fairfield County; House education policy adviser Colleen Grady;

Alex Fischer, president and CEO of the Columbus Partnership; Kristina Phillips-Schwartz, director of education initiatives at the Cincinnati Business Committee; and Scheu. Fischer said the board “will pay special attention to proposals that promote sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness and involve innovative new ways of teaching and learning.” The board plans to pick a slate of grant advisers with fiscal or educational experience to recommend to them the most worthy grant recipients. The panel decided Wednesday to call upon experts from around the state and country to score grant applications before they go to the advisers. Straight A grants are available to traditional

public schools, community schools, STEM schools, individual teachers and to educational consortia that could be made up of multiple schools districts, college and universities, educational service centers or private entities. “We believe that many educators and administrators are eager for transformation and have the innovative spirit needed to improve student achievement and increase school and district operational efficiencies,” Ross said. “We are encouraging these local educators to propose ideas they can lead — or be part of — that will help our schools be more creative, effective and efficient.” ___ Online: Straight A Fund: https://education.ohio. gov/Topics/Straight-A-Fund

It begins with Cordle’s face blurred as he describes how he has struggled with depression and was simply trying to have a good time with friends going “from bar to bar” the night of the accident. He then describes how he ended up driving into oncoming traffic on Interstate 670. Cordle’s face becomes clear as he reveals his name and confesses to killing Canzani. He ends the video by pleading with viewers not to drink and drive. ___ Online: Matthew Cordle’s video confession: http://bit. ly/1dWug8i

Union: Ohio guards don’t decide health treatment COLUMBUS (AP) — The union representing Ohio prison guards on Wednesday said the two corrections officers who have been placed on leave during investigations into the suicide of Cleveland kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro did nothing wrong and called on prisons officials to stop “blaming frontline staff” for decisions made by senior level officials. The president of the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association, Christopher Mabe, said the guards do not have a say on mental health treatment nor do they decide who is put on protective custody and checked on every half hour. “Corrections officers have a job to do, and they do it,” Mabe said in a statement. “Now, (Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction) needs to do its job.” Castro, 53, hanged himself with a bedsheet earlier last week, a few weeks into a life sentence after pleading guilty and admitting to imprisoning three women in his home for a decade, during which he repeatedly beat and raped them. He was on protective custody, a status requiring checks every 30 minutes, but was not on suicide watch.

Prison From page 1 years for the first charge and five years for the second, with terms to run consecutively. Short’s attorney quickly filed an appeal of the sen-

tence, asserting “the trial court failed to make the necessary statutory findings in sentencing defendant to consecutive sentences.” Though the decision issued by the appeals court noted that the trial court is not required to give its reasons for imposing a sentence, it did overturn the sentencing portion only

and remand the case back to court for resentencing. Attorneys on both sides again agreed to recommend a 14-year sentence. Zimmerman cited Short’s criminal history as well as the considerable harm caused by his crimes in justifying reimposing the 10 plus five year consecutive sentences

Wednesday, which he said were necessary to protect the public and “adequately reflect the seriousness of the offenses.” Short was tried for his role in the murder of Greg Trapp in May 1998. He remains incarcerated at London Correctional Institute.

money,” Cundiff said. Because of budget contraints, the city currently has a long list of unfunded projects. Without grant funds, “it would be tough with the current budget” to proceed with development of the river corridor, Cundiff said. An example of what the city might do with river corridor grant money is to extend the Graceland bike path to link with Piqua’s bike path, which also connects with Troy’s, Cundiff said. Cundiff said he hasn’t seen a timeline for development of the river corridor plan, but he expected that meetings would be scheduled of participating communities as the project proceeds.

Nation/World Today in History By The Associated Press

Today is Thursday, Sept. 12, the 255th day of 2013. There are 110 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On September 12, 1943, during World War II, German paratroopers took Benito Mussolini from the hotel where he was being held by the Italian government. On this date: In 1846, Elizabeth Barrett secretly married Robert Browning at St. Marylebone Church in London. In 1888, entertainer Maurice Chevalier was born in Paris. In 1913, Olympic legend Jesse Owens was born in Oakville, Ala. In 1938, Adolf Hitler demanded the right of selfdetermination for the Sudeten Germans in Czechoslovakia. In 1942, during World War II, a German U-boat off West Africa torpedoed the RMS Laconia, which was carrying Italian prisoners of war, British soldiers and civilians. In 1953, Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kennedy married Jacqueline Lee Bouvier (boovee-AY’) in Newport, R.I. In 1960, Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy addressed questions about his Roman Catholic faith, telling a Southern Baptist group, “I do not speak for my church on public matters, and the church does not speak for me.” In 1962, in a speech at Rice University in Houston, President John F. Kennedy reaffirmed his support for the manned space program, declaring: “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” In 1963, “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold,” a novel by John le Carre, went on sale in Britain. In 1977, South African black student leader Steve Biko died while in police custody, triggering an international outcry. In 1986, Joseph Cicippio, the acting comptroller at the American University in Beirut, was kidnapped (he was released in December 1991). In 1992, the space shuttle Endeavour blasted off, carrying with it Mark Lee and Jan Davis, the first married couple in space; Mae Jemison, the first black woman in space; and Mamoru Mohri, the first Japanese national to fly on a U.S. spaceship. Ten years ago: In the Iraqi city of Fallujah, U.S. forces mistakenly opened fire on vehicles carrying police, killing eight of them. The U.N. Security Council ended 11 years of sanctions against Libya. Typhoon Maemi (maymee) slammed into South Korea, killing at least 117 people. Music legend Johnny Cash died in Nashville, Tenn., at age 71.

Out of the Blue

Don’t mess with his blue sneakers BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Don’t mess with my blue shoes, a lawyer told a court in Romania. Defense lawyer Catalin Dancu was hit Tuesday with a fine of 5,000 lei ($1,148) — the maximum allowed — for flouting dress regulations and for being late at the trial of five Romanians accused of art theft. Under his black robe, Dancu wore blue jeans and bright blue sneakers— triple-stripe models that he said cost 200 euros ($264). “I am scented, shaved and fresh,” the lawyer noted, explaining he had been delayed in another court. “I am going to contest this fine.” Proceedings were adjourned after Dancu moved for the judge to be suspended in the case, which another court will rule on. The five defendants are being tried for the theft of seven paintings by Picasso, Matisse and Monet, among others, which were stolen in October from Rotterdam’s Kunsthal gallery.

White House: Russian prestige on the line in Syria Julie Pace and Nancy Benac Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House tried Wednesday to pin the success or failure of a diplomatic option to secure Syria’s chemical weapons on Russia rather than the United States as Secretary of State John Kerry headed for Geneva to work on a Russian proposal for international inspectors to seize and destroy the deadly stockpile. On a different diplomatic front aimed at taking control of the stockpile away from the Assad government, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council met Wednesday to con-

sider goals for a new resolution requiring Syria’s chemical weapons to be dismantled. Whether a U.N. resolution should be militarily enforceable was already emerging as a point of contention. Rebels who had hoped U.S.-led strikes against the Syrian government would aid their effort expressed disappointment, if not condemnation of the U.S., over President Barack Obama’s decision to pursue diplomacy in the wake of a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburbs last month that the U.S. says killed more than 1,400 people. “We’re on our own,” Mohammad Joud, an opposition fighter in the war-shattered

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A car bomb tore through a Libyan Foreign Ministry building in the eastern city of Benghazi on Wednesday, a powerful reminder of lawlessness in the North African nation on the anniversary of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate there as well as the 2001 terror attacks in the United States. Prime Minister Ali Zidan issued a stern warning to militias blamed for much of the violence that has plagued Libya since the overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi two years ago, proclaiming that “we will not bow to anyone.” But the challenges are mounting. The prime minister said that armed men had just stormed a post office in the capital, Tripoli, taking employees hostage. A witness at the scene, speaking on condition of anonymity because of security concerns, told The Associated Press that the attackers were seeking to cut off mail to the southern city of Sabha in retaliation for a rival tribe from Sabha cutting off the water supply to Tripoli for a week, forcing hospitals and homes to rely on wells and large tanks. Other groups have shut down oil fields to protest corruption or demand regional autonomy, causing the country to lose out on millions of dollars a day in potential revenue. The Benghazi blast caused no deaths or serious injuries, but destroyed the Foreign Ministry branch building in an attack rich in symbolism. The build-

ing once housed the U.S. Consulate under the rule of King Idris, who was overthrown in 1969 in a bloodless coup led by Gadhafi. The bombing took place about 6 a.m., well before anybody was due to arrive at the Foreign Ministry for work and at a time when the nearby streets were nearly empty. The explosion blew out a side wall of the building, leaving desks, filing cabinets and computers strewn across the concrete rubble. It also damaged the Benghazi branch of the Libyan Central Bank. Pictures circulated on Facebook showed men carrying dead doves, with one person commenting that “the dog who did this will be punished for the guilt of killing doves.” Another photo shows black smoke smoldering out of the charred Foreign Ministry building, along with wrecked cars and burned palm trees. A green tarp was later placed over part of the building. The blast also rocked Benghazi’s main boulevard, Gamal Abdel-Nasser, which runs through the city from north to south. Several pedestrians were slightly wounded. Mohammed el-Ubaidi, head of the Foreign Ministry branch in Benghazi, told Libyan television that the car carried 60 kilograms (132 pounds) of explosives and was blown up by remote control. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came a day after bomb disposal experts defused an explosive device found next to the Foreign Ministry headquarters in Tripoli.

northern city of Aleppo, said via Skype. “I always knew that, but thanks to Obama’s shameful conduct, others are waking up to this reality as well.” With the American public focus on diplomacy rather than military might, Vice President Joe Biden and senior White House officials summoned House Democrats and Republicans for classified briefings. The sessions followed up Obama’s nationally televised address Tuesday night in which he kept the threat of U.S. airstrikes on the table and said it was too early to say whether the Russian offer would succeed. White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to put a

deadline on diplomatic efforts to resolve the standoff but said that bringing Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile under international control “obviously will take some time.” “Russia is now putting its prestige on the line,” he said. Asked whether U.S. prestige also was on the line, Carney said: “The United States leads in these situations. And it’s not always popular and it’s not always comfortable.” On Capitol Hill, action on any resolution authorizing U.S. military intervention in Syria was on hold, even an alternative that would have reflected Russia’s diplomatic offer. Senators instead debated an energy bill.

Haves and have-nots as health care markets open Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Having health insurance used to hinge on where you worked and what your medical history said. Soon that won’t matter, with open-access markets for subsidized coverage coming Oct. 1 under President Barack Obama’s overhaul. But there’s a new wild card, something that didn’t seem so critical when Congress passed the Affordable Care Act back in 2010: where you live. Entrenched political divisions over “Obamacare,” have driven most Republican-led states to turn their backs on the biggest expansion of the social safety net in a half century. If you’re uninsured in a state that’s opposed, you may not get much help pick-

ing the right private health plan for your budget and your family’s needs. The differences will be more glaring if you’re poor and your state rejected the law’s Medicaid expansion. Unless leaders reverse course, odds are you’ll remain uninsured. That’s because people below the poverty line do not qualify for subsidies to buy coverage in the markets. “We are going to have a new environment where consumers may be victims of geography,” said Sam Karp of the California HealthCare Foundation, a nonprofit helping states tackle practical problems of implementation. “If I’m a low-wage earner in California, I may qualify for Medicaid. With the exact same income in Texas, I may not qualify.”

Suicide bombs hit Egypt military Ashraf Sweilam Associated Press

EL-ARISH, Egypt (AP) — In near-simultaneous attacks, a pair of suicide bombers rammed their explosives-laden cars into military targets in Egypt’s volatile Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday, killing at least nine soldiers and nudging the conflict there closer to a fullblown insurgency. The bombings in the town of Rafah on the border with the Gaza Strip appear to be a deadly response by insurgents to a military crackdown on their north Sinai hideouts that has reportedly left over three dozen dead. Suicide attacks are a new element in the wave of political violence triggered initially

by the ouster of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi on July 3, and intensified by a violent crackdown on his supporters’ protest camps. They suggest that al-Qaidainspired groups may be developing a new capability to strike at security and other targets, both in Sinai and elsewhere in Egypt. One of the two bombings in the town of Rafah brought down a two-story building housing the local branch of military intelligence. It collapsed the entire structure, two security officials said, speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to talk to the media. They said no bodies were found under the rubbles, but the attack left 10 soldiers and seven civil-

ians, three of them women, wounded. The second attack targeted an armored personnel carrier at an army checkpoint not far from the intelligence headquarters, the officials added. The officials said the remains of the two suicide bombers have been recovered. The officials gave a death toll of nine for both attacks but did not say how many were killed in each. “The use of car bombs and suicide attacks in a new turn,” military spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali told The Associated Press. He said the bombings appear to be revenge for the Sinai offensive, which he said hurt the militants by destroying weapons and ammunition caches.

Nation From page 1 Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill Biden walked out to the White House’s South Lawn for a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. — the time the first plane struck the south tower in New York. Another jetliner struck the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. “Our hearts still ache for the futures snatched away, the lives that might have been,” Obama said. A moment of silence was also held at the U.S. Capitol. In New York, loved ones milled around the memorial site, making rubbings of names, putting flowers by the names of victims and weeping, arm-inarm. Former Gov. George Pataki, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and others were in attendance. As with last year, no politicians spoke. Mayor Michael Bloomberg watched the ceremony for his final time in office. Carol Eckna recalled the contagious laugh of her son, Paul Robert Eckna,

who was killed in the north tower. “Just yesterday, you were 28,” she said. “Today, you are 40. You are forever young. Dad and I are proud to be your parents.” The anniversary arrived

amid changes at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, where construction started Tuesday on a new visitor center. On Wednesday, the families of the passengers and crew aboard United Flight 93

recalled their loved ones as heroes for their unselfish and quick actions. The plane was hijacked with the likely goal of crashing it into the White House or Capitol, but passengers tried to overwhelm the

attackers and the plane crashed into the field. All aboard died. “In a period of 22 minutes, our loved ones made history,” said Gordon Felt, president of the Families of Flight 93, whose brother, Edward, was a passenger. Outside Washington, hundreds of people gathered for a short, simple ceremony at an Arlington County plaza three miles from the Pentagon. First responders from the county were among the first on the scene that day. Fire Chief James Schwartz said ceremonies like Wednesday’s — which featured an honor guard and a moment of silence— serve as a reminder of why first responders spend so much time preparing for disaster. “I’ve often said this has been the fastest 12 years of my life,” Schwartz said. “But if you are a surviving family member, I’d imagine this has been the longest 12 years of your life, because you’re waking up every day with a hole in your heart.”

Festival to benefit Special Wish Foundation Cookbook winner

DAYTON — The second annual Folks of Dayton Music Festival Fundraiser ( MusicFestival) is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, at the Polish Club Park, 3690 Needmore Road. This family-friendly picnic and concert will benefit Dayton’s only wish-granting organization, A Special Wish Foundation Inc., which grants wishes to young people birth through 20 who have been diagnosed

with life-threatening disorders. The concert is an outgrowth of Dayton’s Fajita Fest, an annual fundraiser that worked on behalf of A Special Wish Foundation for 12 years. The 2013 festival will feature these local musicians: the Scotty Bratcher Band, Brown Street Breakdown, the Rosie Carson Band and Higgins Madewell with special guest Tom Leary. Last year’s inaugural event raised nearly $2,000. Event coordinator Michael Babb said he is looking

forward to building on that success. “The festival brings the community together for a memorable day of music, food and camaraderie — all for a great cause. There’s no better feeling than knowing you are helping to make a kid’s dream come true,” Babb said. Tickets are $10 per adult; free admission for children 12 and under. The fest runs, rain or shine, from 2 to 9 p.m. Gates open at noon. Guests can bring their own picnic

baskets, coolers, blankets, lawn chairs, etc. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for sale.

praise his name. Looking back on what we’ve come through, should no doubt cause us to be more aware of those things around us that aren’t what they seem, or say they are, and we should have learned something from what has been experienced. Over the past five years, we were as a nation promised many things, especially CHANGE. Oh, we’ve seen change, but it’s not all been for the good has it? Talk with the many who are still looking for jobs, gasoline prices, out of one foreign conflict, and by the sound of it, into another one, and much more; oh, there’s been

change. Friends, truly, this isn’t about political parties or certain groups and the such, it’s just coming from a man who is continuing to pray for this nation and for the one’s who have been given the authority, and for God to help them be convicted of their actions. I also pray for you the reader, that God would touch your heart, so that you would give your whole life to Jesus Christ. I truly trust and pray that this marks a greater time in your life, but most of all, there will be a personal relationship with Jesus in your daily life.

Sidney native is State of the Heart Hospice music therapy intern State of the Heart Hospice has two board-certified music therapists, Brittany Scheer and Amy Pearson. Music therapy is an important part of the care provided by State of the Heart. Music therapy emerged in hospice care in the early to mid 1990s. Through the use of music therapy, a patient can experience improved quality of life, easing of depression and the “opening” of channels for conversation. The therapy also helps hospice patients with relaxation, spiritual support, life experiences and coping skills with grief. State of the Heart is one of only three hospice programs in Ohio, out of more than 100, that offers an internship program. There are no hospice internship programs in Indiana. Chilcote is no stranger to hospice care as her father is a hospice chaplain with Wilson Hospice in Sidney. The topic of dealing with patients confronting a life-limiting illness was discussed routinely while she was growing up. “I have always had a heart for working with the elderly,” Chilcote explained. “I think music therapy and hospice suits my personality.” After she receives her degree in December, she plans to pursue working as a music therapist in a hospice program. And, she is taking her academic credentials to a higher level by pursuing a master’s degree in music therapy. Amy Pearson, who has been a music therapist with State of the Heart for the past six years stated, “Sarah has been


an exceptional intern. Her outstanding music skills and her compassion have benefited several hospice patients and families. She has shown much growth over the past three months. I look forward to her continued growth for the remainder of her internship.” Pearson, along with Scheer, monitors Chilcote’s internship in addition to offering guidance and advice. Chilcote related two experiences she has had during her brief time with State of the Heart. “One day, I visited an Alzheimer’s patient in a nursing home,” she said. She was not sure of what response she would have from the patient as she was very quiet. “However, one of the goals in music therapy is to provide a presence for the patient. At the beginning of the visit, she expressed that she was feeling bad. I played some songs for her and when I finished, I asked her how she was feeling. She looked at me and said, ‘I feel better.’ ” The experience was gratifying, she explained. “We are looking at bringing quality of life to a patient. If I am able to provide a soothing music environment and the patient has had a positive experience, then I feel as if I have fulfilled my role as a music therapist.” For the past month, Chilcote has been visiting a 26-year-old State of the Heart patient who is bed-ridden and unable to speak. Often, the patient’s mother is there when Chilcote visits. “The music I play is soothing,

and helps cover the sound of machines that are humming,” Chilcote said. “I sing songs that his mother likes and knows that he likes. It comforts her and helps the family. Occasionally, I will get an indication from eye movement in the patient that he is connecting with the music. Sometimes I have noticed that he is restless and tense and sense that he becomes more relaxed with the music.” Chilcote added, “The patient’s mother was concerned about her son’s 5-year-old daughter and the loss she would experience. I asked some questions about the granddaughter and put the words from her response into a melody. I recorded the song and put it on a CD with other songs that the young man liked.” The CD will bring back memories of her father later in life to the young child. “The song honors the patient as a father, comforts the mother, and will be a remembrance for the young

daughter,” Chilcote said. “I am really enjoying my internship,” Chilcote added. “I like the care we provide as an agency and the way a team of caregivers works together to care for both the patient and the family.” She will complete her internship in November. State of the Heart Hospices, with offices in Greenville, Coldwater and Portland, cares for patients and families in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are confronting a life-limiting illness. A team made up of a physician, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, bereavement specialists, chaplains, volunteers and the music therapists address the needs of the entire family unit.

What A Pharmacy Was Meant To Be®


Armed with a bachelor’s degree in piano performance from Bowling Green State University in 2004, Sarah Chilcote set out in the world to find a career that would tap into her professional talents and lead her to a fulfilling career. The path became full of curves at times, she admits, but she found her direction at an unexpected time. That direction ultimately led her to State of the Heart Hospice as the nonprofit agency’s newest music therapy intern. “My life was going in circles,” stated Chilcote, a native of Sidney, explaining that she had had a number of jobs while living in Washington, D.C. “I was on a combined missionary and pilgrimage trip to Israel in 2010 and one day we were visiting a Palestinian refugee camp. Our guide explained that many of the kids in the camp suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder brought on my by raids in the middle of the night by armed soldiers.” Hearing this, she said, was a turning point in her life. “It was the green light I had been waiting for,” she said. “I realized that I wanted to work with people who are suffering in life and need help. I knew then that I could use the gift I had been given to help others.” Shortly after that, she applied to Shenandoah University in Winchester, Va., and completed the course for the Professional Studies Program for Music Therapy. Before receiving her degree, she needed to complete a six-month music therapy intern program. She applied at State of the Heart and was accepted as an intern.

Program on McCartyville’s history set Sunday MCCARTYVILLE — People will have an opportunity to learn more about McCartyville this weekend when generations of residents get together to talk about the history of the village. The program, titled “Focus on McCartyville: 1920s to 1940s, A Time to Share Memories about McCartyville,” will be held Sunday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church. There will be no cost for the event, which is open to the public.

The program will be hosted by Paul Workman and Linda Glessner, both members of the Anna District Historical Society. The program will be a chance for local residents to hear about “what the village was like during that era from those who lived there then,” Workman said. There will not be formal speakers during the event, although some McCartyville residents will share their memories of the village. Those resi-

dents include Wilma Baumer, Tom Grilliot, Elmer Meyer, Ralph Bornhorst and Ralph Thaman. They will talk about their memories that date back to the 1920s through the 1940s. “It is hoped that the stories shared by the residents and former residents will create a conversation among those in attendance about their own memories of the village,” Workman said. A collection of photographs of McCartyville will be available

5th Quarter Dance set Friday at the Anna Community Park ANNA — Anna residents will have a chance to dance the night away at a 5th Quarter Dance at the Anna Community Park Friday night. According to Anna Village Council member Gary Strasser, who serves on the Park Committee, a 5th Quarter Dance will be held Friday night following the Anna High School football game. The dance will continue until 11 p.m. The dance will feature the youth band Flight Risk, which is from the New Bremen area. The idea of a 5th Quarter Dance is taken from the fact that a football game has four quarters, and this is the fifth quarter. The dance, which is the first one for the Anna area, is being paid for by the Anna Endowment Foundation and it is being sponsored by the Anna Village

Council Park Committee. Strasser noted that there will be supervision at the dance for young people attending. He said members of the Park Committee and the Anna Village Police will be present. He noted, however, “We’re trying to make sure it’s a fun thing for them (young people).” The dance dress code is casual and Strasser reminded those attending that the weather may be cooler and those attending may want to dress for the weather. The Anna District Historical Society will have popcorn and soft drinks available at cost. The event is free and open to the public. Scarecrows in the Park will be held in October and more information will be available soon regarding that event.

during the program. In June, a similar program about the village of Anna was held and was well-attended, and the organization hopes to sponsor a program about Kettlersville in October. The Anna District Historical Society is an educational organization whose purpose is to promote and provide an education about the heritage of the Anna, McCartyville and Kettlersville areas. The organization provides meetings, research, commemorative activities and mem-

orabilia for those villages. The Anna District Historical Society meets the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Anna Village Hall. The organization welcomes new members. Its officers are Linda Glessner, president; Paul Workman, vice president; Carol Carity, secretary; and Susie Bertsch, treasurer. The trustees of the organization are Bruce Ailes, Jim Nolte, Kathie Eshleman, Carol Wentz, Nancy Martin and Sarah Bertsch.

black background rather than white was a major design choice; however, it isn’t just the looks that make this trailer a blessing to the band. The amount of extra space provided for instruments such as trombones, saxophones, and tubas has been increased tenfold. Not only can the larger instruments be stored with ease, but the smaller instruments, which previously were carried with the students on the bus, can fit now as well. Clarinet and flute players are extremely happy with this new addition. And as the students are aware of the donations that came in to make this purchase possible, one marching band student, Kieran Freistuhler, states “It is nice to know that there are more people out there supporting us.” Make sure to see the band in action during the high school varsity football games halftime show, and also in the Sensational Sounds Band Festival at the Sidney Memorial Stadium on September 21 at 7pm.


The “Pride of Sidney” will be traveling in style with their new equipment trailer. The new trailer replaces the previous white trailer which was purchased in the 90’s, and was in need of repairs that would exceed the cost of purchasing a new one. The donations began rolling in thanks to the combined efforts of the SHS Music Boosters and the SHS Alumni Marching Band members, past and present. The students who make up the “Pride of Sidney” Marching Band have taken great pleasure in the reward of the new band trailer. This new trailer is much larger in size, different in color, and equipped with new technology. Lights inside the trailer are perhaps a smaller feature to others, but to a band student it is like seeing the sun for the first time, and makes for much easier loading and unloading during the night time games. The Marching Band students of SHS were able to help pick the design that would be adorned on the side of the new trailer. The

Issue #1 - Sept. 12, 2013

A “Fresh” Start BY: JOHN HUSA The uniforms are on, the books are out, and school is back in session! With every new school year comes new teachers, new students, and of course new freshmen. It can be a scary shift from being at the top in junior high, and going to the bottom in high school. On the other hand, high school can be an exciting change and can be some of the best years of your life. From the freshmen I interviewed, the year has started off right and they are enjoying being in high school. Blake Leffel said, “I have really enjoyed high school so far. My favorite part has been English class with Mr. Schmiesing.” “It is different since there are a lot more kids in the school, but it has been a good start,” said Jenna Zimmerman. Moriah Pauley said, “It has been different but in a good way. I have really enjoyed playing on the soccer team.” Jared Rourke (also known as “Baby Rourke”) said, “It is way better than junior high. It is cool and I like playing football with my older brother Nick.” I remember when I was a freshman three years ago, and remembering how nervous I was the first day. I look back now and realize it was one of my favorite years ever in school. My advice for the freshmen is to enjoy every moment you get, because before you know it, you will be the ones leading the school.

Master of Math BY: MADILYN BROWN Mr. Jack Albers was well known as a math teacher here at Lehman for 15 years. It was very sad to see such a great teacher go; however, his shoes seem to be filled quite nicely by Mr. Tony Wagner. Although, an unfamiliar face at Lehman, Wagner is definitely familiar with teaching. Wagner has been teaching for 37 years, this being his first year at Lehman. He spent the rest of his teaching career at Sidney City Schools where he started out teaching science classes to the junior high students. He moved to the high school where he became the only math teacher teaching Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and AP Calculus. He has now brought his love for math to Lehman, where he teaches Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and AP Calculus. “The most noticible difference between the two schools is the amount of students,” he said and then jokingly stated that “the halls seem to be a lot quieter.” Wagner also teaches evening classes at Edison Community College and two seventh grade math classes at Holy Angels. Although he seems to be a dedicated Sidney resident, Wagner grew up in Piqua. To get specific, he grew up on a farm. He attended Piqua Schools throughout his childhood and teen years. He then became a Wright State Raider to obtain his undergraduate degree. He received two Masters degrees at the home of the Dayton Flyers. He may be new to Lehman, but Lehman is definitely not new to him. His wife is Cindy Wagner, whom a lot of us remember as our Kindergarten teacher at Holy Angels. Not only is she a graduate of Lehman but she was part of the very first class of Lehman graduates. Their three daughters - Kristen, Gretchen, and Lauren - are Lehman alumnae. Even though you would assume Mr. Wagner is too busy with math and teaching, there are many things he enjoys doing outside of the classroom. In his free time, he takes an interest in woodworking and construction, and fishing and boating in Michigan. He also ran the Sidney City Municipal Pool for many years. “I really enjoy math,” said Wagner. If you take any of his classes, you probably know this already. He said that he wanted to teach math because he enjoys working with students and helping people understand math. If you ever have a question involving math, we all agree that Mr. Wagner is your “go-to” guy.

Cool new khaki BY: EMILY HOERSTEN Walking through the Lehman halls, the student body looks a little different this year. Boys and girls are sporting the new khaki style throughout the building. It was announced during the summer that incoming freshmen would have new uniform guidelines. Boys have the option to wear the same navy pants or shorts or to purchase them in khaki instead. Girls have the opportunity to choose from navy or khaki shorts, pants, or capris. These new uniforms are not limited to freshmen. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are allowed to purchase khakis also, but it is not required. As in the past, shorts are only allowed to be worn in the first and fourth quarters. The khakis are particularly popular among the boys of the student body, including the upperclassmen. Junior Joe Skelton said, “I bought khakis because they’re different and I personally think they complement my red hair and make my eyes sparkle.” Junior Kyle Caulfield had similar views, “I love the khakis,” he said. “They look good on me and they go better with my skin tone.” Every day, khaki shorts and pants are being worn by boys in each grade level. The freshman girls of Lehman wish they had the opportunity to wear skirts to school like the upperclassmen, but they are content with the shorts and capris. However, there is disagreement as to which color is superior. Freshmen Jenna Zimmerman and Moriah Pauley have opposing views on the matter. Zimmerman stated, “Khaki is my favorite because it’s a change from what we’ve been wearing for the past eight years (at Piqua Catholic).” Pauley argues on the side of the dependable navy, “I think it looks better with the blue and yellow shirts.” Whether khaki or navy, pants or shorts, everyone has chosen their favorite, bringing new color and personality into the student body. Overall, the students approve Lehman’s change and are grateful to have more clothing options.

Too-low sodium may be due to diuretic DEAR DR. ROACH: Two weeks ago, my sodium was too low. I was told to drink more water and increase my sodium. I always put salt on my food. I eat ramen noodles and drink the broth, so I don’t understand how it can be low. Both my feet are so swollen that I can hardly get my shoes on, but they tell me to keep my feet up. I also get headaches and feel nauseated at times. Could you please talk about low sodium and what causes it? I am taking HCTZ for blood pressure. — J.U.H. ANSWER: Hyponatremia, a low sodium level in the blood, rarely is about getting too little dietary sodium. Instead, it is about the inability of the body to handle free water. Occasionally, this is because people drink excessive amounts of water, but far more frequently it is because the body is producing too much anti-diuretic hormone for the situation. However, in your case, the cause likely is the HCTZ.

Hydrochlorothiazide prevents the kidneys from being able to dilute urine appropriately, so the sodium level in the blood goes down if you are drinking a lot of water. This means that advice about drinking a certain number of glasses of water a day doesn’t apply to everybody. You shouldn’t be trying to drink extra water; in fact, you should be cutting back a little bit. That does NOT mean that all people on diuretics need to be careful about drinking too much water. In hot weather, people need extra water. Drinking when you are thirsty is a good idea, and drinking extra if you haven’t needed to urinate in a while is another. Swollen feet occasionally mean problems with the kidney, heart or liver, so you should have your doctor make sure nothing is wrong there. DEAR DR. ROACH: Is it still OK for me to engage in sex?

100 years Sept. 12, 1913 New Bremen was visited by a disastrous fire last night, when the main plant of the Klanke Furniture Co. with all its contents was destroyed. The fire was discovered about 10:30 by the night watchman and was first noticed in the finishing department. The fire department responded promptly and did effective work, but could not save the plant. The loss has been estimated at about $60,000. ––––– John J. Sherman today retired from the office of county commissioner after serving the county for two terms.

Jackets host 0-2 Pirates Ken Barhorst

It came down to the end, the Sidney Yellow Jackets rallying to tie the game up in the final minute, but then losing out in overtime to rival Bellefontaine 28-21 last week. But head Sidney coach Adam Doenges admits to being amazed his team was in position to win the game. “I can’t believe we were still in that game, with six or seven turnovers,” he said. “You can’t turn the ball over like we did and expect to win. Once you watch it on film, it came down to different people. When you see four interceptions, right away you look at the quarterback. But it was a total team effort. “I thought the kids played hard. At least most of them,” he went on. “But we had a couple kids that didn’t run routes as hard as they should have, and those things have to be corrected. And that comes back to me. Sloppy play, not playing as hard as we want them to… Either we’re not coaching them up enough or we need to re-evaluate some people.” Still, the Jackets are moving

the ball, mostly through the air behind the passing of Jordan Fox. “I looked at last year’s stats and we’re already halfway toward our season total of passing last year,” he said. “We’re moving the ball offensively, but we’re having bad snaps or turnovers… We’re shooting ourselves in the foot.” “There’s some good stuff here, and we’re more consistent,” he said. “But we haven’t put our best football forward yet.”

The Jackets will try to bounce back Friday night at 7 p.m. at home against the West Carrollton Pirates in a Greater Western Ohio Conference crossover game. The Pirates come into the game with an 0-2 mark, having lost in the opener to Stebbins, 35-30, then losing big last week to a very good Franklin team, 41-14. “I look at West Carrollton as being in the same boat as us, and St. Marys and Bellefontaine,” Doenges said. “All teams that are average and trying to beat each other up. I don’t think West Carrollton is better than they were last year, but they’re a solid football team with a lot of similarities to us, such as kids going both ways.” Sidney lost to the Pirates last year in a two-day battle. The two teams started on a Friday night, but the game had to be postponed because of the weather. Sidney made the long trip back to West Carrollton to finish the game on a Saturday afternoon. The Pirates are also dependent a lot on the pass, and quarterback Chad Vannest has been good so far. He’s connected on 50 percent of his passes for 362 yards and three

touchdowns. Mason Zimmer and Ty Page, with 10 and nine catches respectively, are his favorite targets. Sidney’s defense has played well so far, and last week was led by linebacker Zach Scott, who had 19 tackles, 12 of them solo. He’s leading the GWOC in tackles right now with 34, half of them solo. “Zach had a good game,” said Doenges. “And it showed on the film. He’s done a real good job of making himself a better football player. But a lot of the credit has to go to the defensive line, which is playing really well. Connor Bodenmiller (nose guard) played excellent. He took on double-teams, and gets a lot of the credit for Zach’s game. That’s a concept the other linemen need to understand. Their job is to keep the blockers off our linebackers. If they’re doing their job, they won’t have any tackles.” West Carrollton is averaging 181 yards through the air and 133 on the ground. By contrast, the Jackets are averaging 180 yards through the air and 84 on the ground. The Pirates are giving up 202 yards per game on the ground.

Mesoraco, Hannahan power Reds CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds got power from some unlikely players to complete a 7-3 homestand. Devin Mesoraco hit his first home run in more than a month and Jack Hannahan added his first career pinch-hit homer as Cincinnati avoided a sweep by the lastplace Chicago Cubs with a 6-0 win on Wednesday. Mesoraco, hitless in his previous 13 at bats, had three to lead the Reds. The homestand included a 3-1 record against St. Louis and three-game sweep of NL West Division-leading Los Angeles. “It felt like I got the monkey off my back,” Hannahan said. “The last two years, I hit home runs on opening day. It was huge.” Hannahan didn’t get many pinch-hit opportunities in the American League. “This is all new to me,” he said. The hit turned a close game into a rout. “It wasn’t easy,” Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. “Everybody was happy for Hannahan. It was big to get those runs.” Mike Leake (13-6) threw 107 pitches in 5 2-3 innings en route to a career high in wins, despite humid conditions and an 84-degree temperature at game time. Leake allowed four hits and four walks with six strikeouts. He joined relievers J.J. Hoover, Alfredo Simon, Manny Parra and Sam LeCure to produce Cincinnati’s 16th shutout of the season, four more than last season. “I didn’t have my best stuff,” Leake said. “Sometimes you have a few games where a couple of pitches beat you. I was able to make pitches and it worked out. “It’s an accomplishment,” said Leake of his 13 wins. “You can’t plan how your season is going to go. The winds have blown me in the right direction.” The Reds used small ball in the second for a 2-0 lead. Jay Bruce led off with a single and went to third on Todd Frazier’s softly lined single down the left field line. Both players scored on RBI groundouts to

second by Xavier Paul and Zack Cozart, who went 0-for-4 and ended his careerhigh hitting streak at 15 games. Mesoraco added his ninth homer in the fourth, a one-out solo shot off a pitch by Jeff Samardzija that sailed 429 feet into the first row of the second deck in left field. The homer was Mesoraco’s first in 25 games since he hit two against St. Louis on Aug. 3. The Reds broke it open in the sixth on Hannahan’s 402-foot, three-run homer into the right field seats off of Samardzija, Hannahan’s first since last July 20 for Cleveland against Baltimore. Notes: Reds RHP Johnny Cueto threw

60 pitches to live batters Wednesday in the second simulated game of his comeback from a strained muscle below his right shoulder. Neither Cueto, on the disabled list since June 29, nor manager Dusty Baker knew immediately after the session what his next step will be. Cueto says he feels “good and “ready.” … Baker wasn’t sure whether LHP Tony Cingrani would go with the Reds on their road trip or stay behind for physical therapy. Cingrani left Tuesday’s start in the second inning after aggravating the back problem that sent him to the disabled list from Aug. 25 to Sept. 5.

Cavs face long trip in quest of 2nd straight Ken Barhorst

Lehman and Graham will meet again on the gridiron starting next season, but the Cavaliers will have to make one more long bus ride before that series kicks in. And that ride will take place Friday night when they journey to London trying for their second win in a row. London is a Division IV school with a 1-1 mark, having lost big to Urbana in the season opener before bouncing back with a shutout win over Greenon last week. It is located in Madison County, and Lehman head coach Dick Roll says it’s about a 90-minute bus ride. The Cavaliers fell behind by two touchdowns in the first quarter last week at Sidney Memorial Stadium against Minster. But the spread offense

Lehman has chosen to go with this season was lethal, and brought the Cavs back against the Wildcats to a 33-18 victory. “I like it,” said Roll when asked about the offense that is radically different than what he’s been used to in his long coaching career. “It’s exciting for the kids and exciting for the fans. We have a good group of receivers and (quarterback) Nick Rourke understands the offense. Rourke threw for over 400 yards last week in the win, but the Lehman defense also deserves a lot of credit. After getting torched by the passing of Minster’s Josh Nixon in the first half – over 300 yards – the Cavs held the Wildcats in check over the final two periods to pull away to the win. “We changed our coverage in the second half,” said Roll. “We went back to some stuff

we did at the beginning of last year. We kinda drew it up in the dirt. We added another defensive back, went to a three-man front with two safeties on top. We’ve done that before, and it worked well.” Roll was especially pleased with his team’s performance last week in light of Minster rolling to a 12-0 lead in the opening quarter. “I told the kids I thought we grew up,” Roll said. “And that’s how we grew up. We did not go into a shell and say ‘here we go again.’ The kids responded and made plays, and that’s something we didn’t do the first week.” Rourke’s big game throwing the ball was made possible by excellent protection from his teammates up front, against a big and strong Minster pass rush. “That’s something we’ve done well all season,” Roll

said. “We can’t run block very well yet, though.” Roll said London is big and will want to run the ball. “They’ll be in the straight T and try to run the ball,” he said. “But they will go to the spread sometimes in a look similar to what we do, so it’s two distinct preparations. We think we can run our offense, and we think we’re versatile enough to run the ball if they take the passing away. “It’s going to be a long bus ride and that’s a concern,” he added. “But we have to learn to win consistently.” The contest Friday will start at 7:30. NOTE: Lehman fans attending Friday’s game at London are asked to enter the far east gate of the stadium. This will give them access to the vistors bleachers. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students.

A big game for Loramie against 1-1 Tinora Friday Ken Barhorst FORT LORAMIE — Fort Loramie football coach Matt Burgbacher has been burning the midnight oil this week — he knows what’s at stake for his Redskins Friday night. Off to a 2-0 start with wins over backyard rivals Minster and New Bremen, the Redskins face a tough D-VI opponent Friday night when Defiance Tinora comes to town. It’s the first year of a four-year contract between the two schools. “This is a big game for us,” said Burgbacher. “And I’ve been pushing the envelope, staying late, watching film… trying to get any advantage we can.” The Redskins are coming off an impressive win last week, 62-20 over the New Bremen Cardinals. New Bremen returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and scored late in the first quarter to leave the game tied after one period. But the second and third quarters were all Redskins. “We did a lot of things right in that game,” said the coach. “But we

Delaunte Thornton

weren’t perfect. That first quarter, teams play on adrenalin, and they had that kickoff return and another touchdown. But I told the kids in the second quarter, now is the time to put them away. And in the third quarter, I felt they were tired and we kept the pressure on them.” Loramie put up 27 points in the third period to turn it into a rout and leave the Cardinals at 0-2. “I thought our assistants did a great job with the game plan and did a great job getting the kids to execute it,” said Burgbacher. Now he turns his attention to Tinora, a school with an excellent football

tradition. As Burgbacher said, “they were 7-3 last year and that was a down year for them.” Tinora opened the season with a tough 21-14 overtime loss to Findlay Liberty Benton, another school with good football tradition. Then last week, Tinora routed a Michigan school 34-10. “Tinora is a quality team,” said the coach. “They’re a new opponent for us and a very good football team. This is why you play. You want to play the good teams, and they have a good program. We think Tinora has the potential to win seven or eight games, so this is big for us because of the computer points.”

Burgbacher said Tinora is “old school.” They will come out with double tight ends and they’re going to want to run the football,” he said. “They want their series to last 10 or 15 plays. They want those sustained drives. They’ve got the athletes up there. They had quite a few kids in the state track meet last year and their baseball team went to the state tournament. So they have athletes, but they also have some big guys up front. “Defensively, they will mix it up,” he added. “They’ll run a 4-2 or 3-4, and they will come after us. So we have to be ready for different looks.” The Redskins are getting it done on the ground and through the air. Delaunte Thornton is averaging 132 yards rushing in his first two games, and quarterback Tyler Kazmaier is off to a great start, hitting 59 percent of his passes, 23-for-39, for 435 yards and five touchdowns. Craig Fullenkamp and Logan McGee are his favorite targets, with six catches apiece. And both are averaging 20 or more yards per catch.

Rockets open MAC play Ken Barhorst ANNA — Bryan Rioch hates it when his predictions are right. Heading into last week, Rioch predicted hisRockets would have their hands full with Brookville on the road, even though it was no contest the year prior at Anna’s field. Brookville stunned the Rockets with a 24-0 halftime lead, then survived Anna’s 35-point second half to upset the Rockets 45-35. “We came out flat and they came out fired up,” Rioch said. “And that’s how it was. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. In 16 years I’ve never had a ball snapped over our punter’s head. But it happened Friday. He picked it up, gets hit, fumbles and they take it in for a touchdown. “But I’m proud of how the kids handled it,” he added. “We

came out in the second half and got after them. We had all the momentum in the world and they called a fake punt in the third quarter that worked. It was a gutsy call on their part and it took away our momentum. But we scored 35 points in the second half and only had 10 fewer yards in the game than they did.” The bottom line, Rioch said, was “we never stopped them.” Brookville only threw four passes in the game because they didn’t need to attempt any more than that. The Rockets gave up 319 yards on the ground. “Our preseason schedule did not prepare us for a team that good, and it took us a while to get adjusted,” Rioch said. “Their tight end just handed us our lunch. We had to make some changes. We moved Chandler Cotterman out on the end, but that caused some issues inside.

That was as good a team up front as we’ve played in years.” The Rockets now turn their attention to the Midwest Athletic Conference, opening play Friday night at home against 2-0 Fort Recovery. The Indians own wins over Edgerton and WaynesfieldGoshen. “They’re pretty balanced, and their quarterback is a sophomore with a good arm,” said Rioch. “And they have a nice running back, about 6-2, 180.” That’s Kyle Timmerman, who has 249 yards rushing so far this season. Quarterback Darien Sheffer has thrown for 224 yards and four touchdowns so far, with Kyle Schroer being his favorite target, with 11 catches. “This game is going to be more about us than them,” Rioch said. “We’re just going to have to get better at what we do.”

NASCAR hands down penalties to Michael Waltrip Racing, altering Chase field By MATT TALIAFERRO Athlon Sports Racing Editor

The events from a controversial final 10 laps in NASCAR’s 26race regular-season finale at Richmond International Raceway led to unprecedented steps by the sanctioning body on Monday, when NASCAR announced penalties that altered its Chase for the Championship playoff field. Martin Truex Jr., intially in the Chase as a wild card entry, is out. In his place sits Ryan Newman, following 50-point penalties issued by NASCAR to all three Michael Waltrip Racing teams for manipulating the outcome of the race. The events in question began after Newman completed a sizzling late-race run to the lead. A win for Newman would have bumped Penske Racing’s Joey Logano — and his one win — from the top 10 in points and ensured the former’s inclusion to the Chase, while the latter held the advantage in the wild card standings over Truex. However, with eight laps remaining, Truex’s MWR teammate, Clint Bowyer, was informed Newman was going to win the race. One lap later, he spun by himself off of Turn 4, bringing out a caution. The leaders, including Newman, Carl Edwards, Paul Menard and Kurt Busch, hit pit road for fresh tires and when they emerged, Newman found himself shuffled to fifth in the running order. When the race restarted with three laps remaining, Bowyer and fellow MWR teammate Brian Vickers were called back into the pits, thus falling behind Logano in the running order, moving the Penske pilot back into 10th place in the standings and handing the wild card to Truex. The duo then turned laps well off the pace over

the final two laps, ensuring Logano remained ahead on-track. When the dust settled, Newman was flagged the third-place finisher behind Edwards and Busch. Logano’s 22nd-place finish ensured a one-point advantage in the standings over Jeff Gordon, who finished eighth. Truex was awarded the second wild card entry by virtue of a tiebreaker over Newman.

* Wild Card Recipients

However, after reviewing the events of the evening — and amid public outcry — NASCAR amended the results when it handed down penalties on Monday evening. The 50-point reductions assessed to each MWR team knocked Truex to 17th in points, handing the wild card back to Ryan Newman (now 12th in points). Despite Bowyer’s penalty, he still qualified for the Chase. Additional penalties to the

MWR organization included a $300,000 fine, the loss of 50 owner’s points to each team and the indefinite suspensions of general manager Ty Norris. Additionally, the three crew chiefs — Brian Pattie (No. 15), Scott Miller (No. 55) and Chad Johnston (No. 56) — were placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. “Based upon our review of Saturday night’s race at Richmond, it is our determination that the MWR organization attempted to manipulate the outcome of the race,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR’s vice president of competition. “As the sport’s sanctioning body, it is our responsibility to ensure there is a fair and level playing field for all of our competitors and this action today reflects our commitment to that.” While Bowyer admitted to calling to apologize to Newman on Monday, he skirted the issue in an interview with ESPN on Tuesday. “Let’s not dig too much into this,” Bowyer said when asked if his apology referred to the spin. “I’ve dealt with a lot of opinions and a lot of things that happened. I gave my interview after the race as to what happened. We’ve been penalized with the biggest penalty in NASCAR history and we’re going to get through this as a race team.” In a statement released Monday evening, Newman said, “I am proud that NASCAR took a stand with respect to what went on Saturday night at Richmond. I know it was a tough decision to make. With that being said, myself, Matt Borland (crew chief) and this entire No. 39 team are looking forward to competing for the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.” MWR co-owner Michael Waltrip stated that he does not plan to appeal the penalties.

No-call on restart hands win to Edwards By MATT TALIAFERRO Athlon Sports Racing Editor

Lost in the barrage of attention garnered by the penalties assessed to Michael Waltrip Racing was Carl Edwards’ victory in the Federated Auto Parts 400 and his apparent jumping of the final restart that NASCAR turned a blind eye to. Edwards lined up second, on the outside of Paul Menard, with three laps remaining but beat the No. 27 to the line by over a half-car length. NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton warned drivers to be vigilant on the restarts, as a controversial one had occurred in the Nationwide race one night

earlier. He went so far as to state in the pre-race driver’s meeting that, “There are balls and there are strikes. Sometimes you dont like the call; sometimes we dont even like the call we have to make. I just want to remind everybody: Do not put us in that position where we have to make the call.” Despite Edwards clearly beating Menard to the start-finish line, no call was made by NASCAR in a situation that mirrored a restart at Dover in June. In that race, Jimmie Johnson was penalized for jumping a late-race start, costing him a win. When asked post-race about the restart, Edwards said the difference between two and four tires dictated the situation.

“Paul had two tires. I knew he was going to be at a big advantage with grip,” Edwards explained. “He took off (and) I waited until he went to go. As we were going, his car actually touched my door. I think it surprised him a little bit or something. He turned a little bit. I heard his engine speed up. He spun the tires. “At that point, I really have a choice to either lift off the throttle and wait for him to try to gather it up — I’ve never seen a guy able to gather is up too quickly when they spin that bad — or go and hope NASCAR understands that he spun his tires. In this case they did, they understand he came up and hit me and spun his tires.”

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Jimmie Johnson has yet to score a win in Joliet, but he has nine top 10s in 11 starts (six top 5s). And, oh, yeah, it’s Chase time. Pretty Solid Pick: Clint Bowyer needs to put the events of Richmond behind him, and his six top 10s in seven Chicagoland starts bode well for that happening. Good Sleeper Pick: Brian Vickers, who has averaged a 9.5-place finish in six Cup starts at Chicagoland. Runs on Seven Cylinders: Surprisingly, Greg Biffle, with a single top-10 showing (fourth, 2008) in 10 starts. Insider Tip: The powerhouse teams will key on the big intermediates in the Chase, beginning with this race. Keep a close eye on the Hendrick, Roush and Gibbs camps.

Johnson denies any wrongdoing in controversy The Associated Press

Five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson denied any wrongdoing the Chase fielddeciding race at Richmond International Raceway over the weekend that has been marred by controversy. Johnson defended himself one day after fellow driver Clint Bowyer said his spinout at Richmond was no different than when a Johnson mishap brought out a caution earlier in the race. “Clint brought it up from what I’ve been able to see and read,” Johnson said Wednesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “I think he was just having a bad day. And as things kept piling on, he just tried to suck

someone else into the mix with him.” Bowyer’s spin ended Ryan Newman’s bid to win the race and make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field and instead helped Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. land a berth. NASCAR, however, determined that MWR had manipulated the race and replaced Truex with Newman in addition to punishing MWR. The implication by Bowyer was that Johnson spun intentionally with 55 laps remaining to assist the Chase chances of Jeff Gordon, Johnson’s teammate at Hendrick Motorsports. Johnson blamed a flat tire for his caution and pointed out cor-

rectly that Gordon already was on pit road when it occurred. “If anyone has any questions, just go back and look at the race and you’ll see that our tire blowing was bad for the 24 (of driver Jeff Gordon), bad for the 5 (of driver Kasey Kahne, another Hendrick teammate) — bad for a lot of guys who were coming to pit road,” Johnson said. “The only silver lining for the 24 was that he was preserved on pit road, and was able to get the Lucky Dog (to get back on the lead lap). But even then, you have to start at the tail end (of the lead-lap cars). . There was no benefit.” At Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, Kyle Busch was

asked what he thought of the scandal. “I say you do whatever you’ve got to do to get your team in,” Busch said of the Chase. “If you’re in that position, and you have multi-team cars, that’s what they’re there for. Some people say I’m full of crap and you’re not supposed to manipulate the end of the race. Just let it play out as it plays out. Let the best man win. “But, I was in the same position last year. There were ways it could have been manipulated and I could have gotten myself in the Chase. But I didn’t do it. And I missed the Chase.” Johnson said NASCAR needs to use more officials and more technology resources, such as television replays and even in-

car audio, to make better calls during the races. “In the overall issue of officiating, I think we need to expect things and when we get to the Chase time of the year — and really we should have it all year — but NASCAR should have people staffed up instead of downsizing,” Johnson said. “Not only from the aspect of what we’re talking about right here, but also on restarts and a lot of other procedures that take place. “It is tough for the (officials in the scoring) tower to take care of it all. They need other people, qualified people, other resources and technology to make these decisions.”
