Shuster promoted to public works superintendent ANNA — Anna Village Council members heard about the new public works superintendent for the village and discussed updates on the Anna Police Department. Council members were told that Kyle Wildermuth’s last day as public works superintendent with the village was Sept. 27. Tyler Shuster will be be promoted to Wildermuth’s position. Shuster began his new position on Sept. 30 and will receive a pay increase of $1 per hour and will receive another $1 after he has successfully completed his six-month probation. The Operator of Record is being transferred from Wildermuth to Shuster. Council members approved a pay increase for Anna’s acting Police Chief Lynn Marsee. She will be compensated $100 per month for taking on the duties of acting police chief for the village while Anna Police Chief Scott Evans is suspended without pay.

That pay will be retroactive to Aug. 1. The action was taken after meeting in executive session. Council member and Safety Committee member Kathie Eshleman told council members that Marsee is working on the problems at the Anna Police Department that were discovered after Evans was placed on leave. Eshleman said Marsee is doing a great job in her new position. Council members were told the Anna Police Department’s radar has been calibrated and Marsee has purchased some of the less expensive items needed for the department. Marsee has set up training to certify officers to use a rifle. All officers are certified for shotguns now. Marsee has located the Policy and Procedure Manual for the department, but has not found the paperwork that the officers signed that they received the manuals. Marsee plans to apply for grants for Tasers.

‘Pride and Prejudice’ event heads to Wright State DAYTON (AP) — A taste of 19th century England is coming to Ohio as Wright State University hosts a conference and celebration marking the 200th anniversary of publication of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.” “Pride and Prejudice: The Bicentennial,” running Oct. 10-12, will feature presentations by scholars from around the world, theatrical performances, an English tea party and a formal Regency Ball. The three-day event also includes displays of student research, discussion groups and opportunities for workshops. It was conceived by Crystal Lake, an assistant English professor at the university. Lake was a visiting fellow two summers ago at the Chawton House Library in England, near the house where Austen lived while she was writing the book. Discussing the experience with faculty and students when she returned persuaded her there’s an enduring love for the story of Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, morals, manners and marriage. “I also realized that Wright State could join a global community, not only to celebrate Austen’s work but also to create an innovative educational experience that would benefit our students as well as others in the Dayton area,” she said in a release.

Steve Cashman, CEO of the Dublinbased HealthSpot Inc., created the kiosk designed by Nottingham Spirk, a Cleveland innovation firm. HealthSpot Inc. says Cuyahoga County is the first public entity to use the station its employees, but there are five other stations in the Cleveland area and 10 across the state. The company plans to roll out more stations in Ohio, HealthSpot spokeswoman Alexandra Crabb said. University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital tested one station at University Hospitals Medical Center

in Beachwood and plans to open one next month at a community center on the city’s east side. Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus announced a 6-month pilot program to test four HealthSpot kiosks around that city with the goal of eventually using them in rural communities. The Justice Center kiosk is open to any county employee regardless of individual insurance. A visit to a doctor through the kiosk will create a medical record which can be forwarded to a patient’s primary care doctor or used for a referral. ___ Information from: The Plain Dealer,

Jury selection beginning in double slayings WARREN (AP) — Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in the murder trial of a man charged with strangling his mother and fatally beating and shooting his father in a rage. Jury selection could take up to two weeks in the Trumbull County Common Pleas Court trial in Warren for Louis R. Mann, 33, in the death of his parents two years ago. More than 150 prospective jurors were summoned for duty.

If Mann is convicted in the Sept. 30, 2011, murders of 59-year-old Phillip Mann and 53-year-old Frances Mann and the theft of their car, a jury will be asked whether Mann should be executed. Police say the defendant, a married father of two, admitted strangling his mother with a clothesline during an argument, then “took out 31 years of rage” on his father by hitting him in the head with a flashlight and shooting him.

A woman in the motel room with Mann where he was arrested said she smoked crack cocaine with him the same day he’s accused of murdering his parents, stealing their 1982 Cadillac, credit cards and picking up the 27-year-old woman. Mann had been living with his parents since his release from the Trumbull County jail several days earlier and was cooking a hamburger when he and his mother got into a dispute over his child, he told police.

“Louis said he became enraged and grabbed a clothesline from on top of the refrigerator and strangled his mother to death,” according to an affidavit filed with the court. “Louis then stated … that his father came into the room with a .22 bolt-action rifle … he got the gun away from his father. Louis then stated he picked up a Mag flashlight and took out 31 years of rage on his father’s head.’ Louis then stated he shot his father,” the affidavit said.

He said the port authority dropped out of the coalition shortly before the financial crisis of 2008, when it faced a tighter budget. Coalition executive director Stephen Burnett said he has heard the mind-set is starting to change in Toledo but said the coalition had been told the city’s emphasis was on cargo shipments, not cruise lines. “We tried a couple of times and decided not to make a nuisance of our-

selves,” Burnett said. “It was the port authority.” Burnett said he sees a bright future for the Great Lakes cruise industry because as many as five cruise lines are expected to offer new trips in 2014, the most in several years. All are to be smaller vessels, holding 100 to 400 people, with the Great Lakes seeing a net increase of 6,000 passengers. Joe Cappel, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority director of cargo development, said the agency’s focus has been almost exclusively on cargo shipments in recent years because the cruise industry has never regained the foothold it once had in the Great Lakes region. “With our limited resources at the port, we try to focus on things that have the most bang for the buck, which means cargo. But, no, we haven’t been aggressive in marketing Toledo to the cruise-ship industry,” Cappel said. Thomas Winston, port authority vice president of administration and chief financial officer, said $102,000 of the agency’s $283,000 advertising, promotions, and marketing budget is dedicated to Toledo Express Airport, which is struggling to maintain passenger service.

Nation/World Today in History The Associated Press

Today is Monday, Sept. 30, the 273rd day of 2013. There are 92 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 30, 1955, actor James Dean, 24, was killed in a two-car collision near Cholame, Calif. On this date: In 1777, the Continental Congress — forced to flee in the face of advancing British forces — moved to York, Pa. In 1791, Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute” premiered in Vienna, Austria. In 1809, a treaty was signed by Indiana Territory Gov. William Henry Harrison and representatives of four Indian tribes under which the Indians sold some 3 million acres of land to be used for U.S. settlements. In 1846, Boston dentist William Morton used ether as an anesthetic for the first time as he extracted an ulcerated tooth from merchant Eben Frost. In 1938, after co-signing the Munich Agreement allowing Nazi annexation of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain said, “I believe it is peace for our time.” In 1949, the Berlin Airlift came to an end. In 1954, the first nuclearpowered submarine, the USS Nautilus, was commissioned by the Navy. In 1962, black student James Meredith was escorted by federal marshals to the campus of the University of Mississippi, where he enrolled for classes the next day. In 1986, the U.S. released accused Soviet spy Gennadiy Zakharov, one day after the Soviets released American journalist Nicholas Daniloff. In 1988, Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev retired President Andrei A. Gromyko from the Politburo and fired other old-guard leaders in a Kremlin shake-up. In 2001, under threat of U.S. military strikes, Afghanistan’s hard-line Taliban rulers said explicitly for the first time that Osama bin Laden was still in the country and that they knew where his hideout was located. Ten years ago: The FBI began a full-scale criminal investigation into whether White House officials had illegally leaked the identity of undercover CIA officer Valerie Plame. Eighteen accused al-Qaida sympathizers were convicted in Belgium’s biggest terrorism trial. Five years ago: Congressional leaders and President George W. Bush rummaged through ideas new and old, desperately seeking to change a dozen House members’ votes and pass a multibillion-dollar economic rescue plan. Wall Street regained hope as the Dow industrials rose 485 points. More than 200 people were killed in a stampede of pilgrims at a Hindu temple in Jodhpur, India. J.L. Chestnut Jr., the first black lawyer in Selma, Ala. and a prominent attorney in civil rights cases across a half century, died in Birmingham at age 77.

Jewels may be from plane crash PARIS (AP) — A French mountain climber stumbled upon a case of dozens of cut jewels, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars believed to be debris from one of two Air India crashes decades ago, police said. Police commander Sylvain Merly of France’s Savoie region said the experienced Mont Blanc climber, who asked to stay anonymous, found the box marked “Made in India” while scaling one of the peak’s glaciers and turned it in on Sept. 9. Authorities hope to find someone connected with its owner, who is presumed to have been a passenger on one of the two jets that crashed in 1950 or 1966. Merly said Thursday the metal box, slightly smaller than a shoe box, was filled with small bags of loose jewels, mostly emeralds and sapphires. Merly said debris from the Air India crashes regularly rises to the surface on Mont Blanc.

Nigeria: Militants kill students in college attack Adamu Adamu and Michelle Faul Associated Press

POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — Suspected Islamic extremists attacked an agricultural college in the dead of night, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in dormitories and torching classrooms, the school’s provost said — the latest violence in northeastern Nigeria’s ongoing Islamic uprising. The attack, blamed on the Boko Haram extremist group, came despite a 4 ½-monthold state of emergency covering three states and one-sixth of the country. It and other recent violence have led many to doubt assurances from the government and the military that they are winning Nigeria’s

war on the extremists. Provost Molima Idi Mato of Yobe State College of Agriculture told The Associated Press that there were no security forces protecting the college. Two weeks ago, the state commissioner for education had begged schools and colleges to reopen and promised they would be guarded by soldiers and police. Idi Mato said as many as 50 students may have been killed in the assault that began at about 1 a.m. Sunday in rural Gujba. “They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels. They opened fire at them,” he said, adding that most victims were aged between 18 and 22. Soldiers recovered 42 bodies and transported 18 wounded students to Damaturu

Specialist Hospital, 40 kilometers (25) miles north, said a military intelligence official who insisted on anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. Two of the wounded later died, said Adamu Usman, a survivor from Gujba who was helping at the hospital. President Goodluck Jonathan condemned the attack in a televised “chat with the media” Sunday night, and questioned the motives of Boko Haram, which wants to impose Islamic law across Nigeria. He said he wondered whether the victims were Muslim or Christian. Usman said almost all those killed were Muslims, as is the majority of the college’s student body. Jonathan likened the assault to that on Nairobi’s premier

shopping mall last week, where Islamic extremists from Somalia’s al-Shabab movement killed 67 civilians — but only after allowing many Muslims to leave. Boko Haram has said some of its fighters trained with al-Shabab in Somalia. Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has said in video addresses that his group wants to end democracy in Nigeria and allow education only in Islamic schools. Boko Haram means “Western education is forbidden.” Its uprising poses the biggest security challenge in years to this country. Nigeria is Africa’s biggest oil producer and its most populous nation with more than 160 million people — almost equal numbers of which are Muslims and Christians.

Inspectors outline plan for Syria’s chemical weapons Toby Sterling Associated Press

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Inspectors who will oversee Syria’s destruction of its chemical weapons said Sunday their first priority is to help the country scrap its ability to manufacture such arms by a Nov. 1 deadline — using every means possible. The chemical weapons inspectors said that may include smashing mixing equipment with sledgehammers, blowing up delivery missiles, driving tanks over empty shells or filling them with concrete, and running machines without lubricant so they seize up and become inoperable. On Friday, the U.N. Security Council ordered the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to help Syria destroy its chemical weapons by mid-2014. On Sunday, inspectors met with media in The Hague to explain their current plan of action, which is to include an initial group of 20 leaving for Syria on Monday. The organization allowed two inspectors to speak on condition of anonymity out of concern for their safety amid

Syria’s civil war; both are veteran members of the OPCW. Spokesman Michael Luhan said the men “are going to be deeply involved in Syria.” “This isn’t just extraordinary for the OPCW. This hasn’t been done before: an international mission to go into a country which is involved in a state of conflict and amid that conflict oversee the destruction of an entire category of weapons of mass destruction which it possesses,” Luhan said. “This is definitely a historical first.” Syria acknowledged for the first time it has chemical weapons after an Aug. 21 poison gas attack killed hundreds of civilians in a Damascus suburb and President Barack Obama threatened a military strike in retaliation. A U.N. investigation found that nerve gas was used in the attack but stopped short of blaming it on Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. After a flurry of diplomatic negotiations involving the U.S., Syria, and Syrian ally Russia, Syria made an initial voluntary disclosure of its program to the Hague-based OPCW. Under organization’s rules, the amounts and types of weapons in Syria’s stockpiles, and the number and

location of the sites, will not be publicly disclosed. The U.S. and Russia agree that Syria has roughly 1,000 metric tons of chemical weapons agents and precursors, including blister agents such as sulfur and mustard gas, and nerve agents like sarin. External experts say they are distributed over 50 to70 sites. One of the OPCW experts with a military background said the “open source” information about the Syrian program is “reasonable.” Timothee Germain, a researcher at the Center for International Security and Arms Control in Paris, who is not involved with the OPCW project, said that in the early phases of Syria’s civil war, chemical weapons were consolidated into a small number of sites in order to keep them from falling into the hands of rebels. But when the prospect of a U.S. military strike emerged, the weapons may have been redistributed over a larger number of sites to preserve them. He added that he is skeptical the current timeline can be achieved. “From a technical standpoint, it’s really a long-shot,” he said.

PHOENIX (AP) — From the triple-digit temperatures the day before to the gusty winds that kicked up in a matter of hours, nearly every detail leading up the June deaths of 19 Arizona firefighters has been painstakingly spelled out by investigators. Even though they say proper procedure was followed, the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and members of Congress have wasted no time in asking that lessons be learned from the deaths. The challenge now, experts say, is figuring out how to prevent another tragedy as the threat of wildfire shows no sign of diminishing in the nation’s overgrown, drought-stricken forests and foothills. One way, they say, is to invest in GPS tracking technology for firefighters. “Real-time information on the location of crews and the location of the fire, if those two things had been known, this accident could have been prevented,” said Bill Grabbert, a retired wildland firefighter, fire management officer and author. The results of a three-month investigation released Saturday outline a series of missteps by the crew and commanders who were fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire, but specific causes for the deaths are not included. Grabbert said such “milquetoast-type reports” are the result of federal legislation that opened the door to firefighters potentially being charged criminally for making mistakes while battling a blaze. “It’s critically important that we learn from fires like this,” Grabbert said. “But with the guidelines for writing reports like this, you end up with things being soft-pedaled. That makes it difficult, or impossible, to learn lessons that can prevent fatalities.” A year after the deadly Thirtymile Fire in Washington state, Congress approved legislation in 2002 requiring an independent investigation whenever a U.S. Forest Service firefighter dies in an entrapment or burnover. In the Yarnell case, a team of local, state and federal fire experts conducted the investigation since the Granite Mountain Hotshots worked for the city of Prescott.

Shutdown From page 1 of California. “We are not shutting the government down.” On the other hand, Democrats said the GOP’s bravado may fade as the deadline to avert a shutdown nears. Asked whether he could vote for a “clean” temporary funding bill, Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, said he couldn’t. But Labrador added, “I think there’s enough people in the Republican Party who are willing to do that. And I think that’s what you’re going to see.” McCarthy wouldn’t say what changes Republicans might make. He appeared to suggest that a very short-term measure might pass at the last minute, but GOP aides

said that was unlikely. And rumors Saturday night that GOP leaders might include a provision to deny lawmakers and staff aides their employer health care contributions from the government had cooled by Sunday afternoon. Lawmakers and congressional aides are required to purchase health insurance on the Affordable Care Act exchanges, but the administration has taken steps to make sure they continue to receive their 72 percent employer contribution. Republicans argued that Reid should have convened the Senate on Sunday to act on the measure. “If the Senate stalls until Monday after-

noon instead of working today, it would be an act of breathtaking arrogance by the Senate Democratic leadership,” said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. “They will be deliberately bringing the nation to the brink of a government shutdown.” In the event lawmakers blow the Monday deadline, about 800,000 workers would be forced off the job without pay. Some critical services such as patrolling the borders, inspecting meat and controlling air traffic would continue. Social Security benefits would be sent, and the Medicare and Medicaid health care programs for the elderly and poor would continue to pay doctors and hospitals.

The Senate was not scheduled to meet until midafternoon Monday, 10 hours before a shutdown would begin, and even some Republicans said privately they feared that Reid held the advantage in the fast-approaching end game. Republicans argued that they had already made compromises; for instance, their latest measure would leave intact most parts of the health care law that have taken effect, including requiring insurance companies to cover people with preexisting conditions and to let families’ plans cover children up to age 26. They also would allow insurers to deny contraception coverage

based on religious or moral objections. Tea party lawmakers in the House — egged on by Cruz — forced GOP leaders to abandon an earlier plan to deliver a “clean” stopgap spending bill to the Senate and move the fight to another mustdo measure looming in mid-October: a bill to increase the government’s borrowing cap to avert a market-rattling, first-ever default on U.S. obligations. McCarthy appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” while Cruz and Labrador were on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Van Hollen appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

have been growing lots of unwanted hair on my face, arms and abdomen. I also get painful acne now and then. I had lab tests, and my testosterone level was 613 (normal is 20-60). My estrogen was normal. A sonogram and MRI showed normal ovaries and one enlarged adrenal gland. Now doctors recommend a total hysterectomy because they feel my ovaries are the problem. What other treatments do I need to correct this condition besides a gallon of Nair and a turban or wig? —G.N. ANSWER: It’s the very high levels of testosterone that are causing the problems. These levels, which would be normal for men, cause male pattern hair loss, as well as unwanted body hair and acne in a female. The big concern is where the testosterone is coming from. It can come either from the adrenal glands, which sit right on top of the kidney and normally produce some male hormones in women, or from the ovaries. The negative MRI scan makes a tumor unlikely, since the test is very sensitive. I am concerned about

your enlarged adrenal gland; it sounds like your doctors think the ovary is the cause. A blood test called DHEA-S can help identify whether the hormone is coming from the adrenal gland. I suspect you have already had that done. If it’s not a tumor, the most likely cause is ovarian hyperthecosis. In this condition, the ovaries make excess testosterone, which causes hair loss from the head, often deepens voices and produces body hair similar to men’s. The diagnosis can be made only by examination of the ovaries, removal of which is also the treatment. It’s important to make this diagnosis, because the risk of diabetes is very high. I recognize the importance of the hair loss and growth, but it’s a symptom of the excess testosterone, which must be treated.

Odds and ends LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” slurped up the box office. The animated Sony sequel featuring the voices of Bill Hader and Anna Faris opened in first place and earned $35 million in its debut weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The original “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” was showered with $30.3 million during its opening weekend in 2009. “It’s remarkable that it did as well as and surpassed the first film,” said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony Pictures. “The filmmakers really ratcheted it up in terms of palette and tone. It’s one of those films that just draws you in. The story is fun, and there’s something for the whole family.”

Flags retired at Grover ‘Hero Day’ PIQUA — “Hero Day” at Gover Harley-Davidson in Piqua Saturday, Sept. 14 started with the kind of morning that Americans have come to associate with Patriot Day. A bright, clear September day, flags flapping in the breeze, and a swell of national pride. Gover holds Hero Day to honor everyone who serves their country and community: military members, first responders, public safety workers – and blood donors. The red, white and blue Community Blood Center (CBC) Bloodmobile was parked between the State Patrol’s new muscle car Dodge Charger cruisers and the vintage Army Jeeps and supply trucks on exhibit courtesy of the World War II 101st Airborne reenactment group. It’s a tradition at Hero Day to feature tributes to the military, including the special traveling memorial to Lima Company, the Ohio Marine Reserve company that lost 23 members in Iraq. The CBC Hero Day Blood Drive has become part of the tradition. Saturday’s blood drive registered 37 donors and collected 32 donations for 138 percent of the collection goal. The highlight of the day was the somber flag retirement ceremony, conducted by the Veterans Elite Tribute Squad. Ageing vet-

erans and young “junior Marines” took part. There was a dedication, the traditional script, the Star Spangled Banner and the Pledge of Allegiance. A vintage military bi-plane performed a flyover, and more than 600 tattered flags retired from service went up in towering flames. Hero Day brings together people with overlapping interest in motorcycles, military history, and blood donation. Amanda Penny from Piqua made her first lifetime donation in June and was excited about donating on Hero Day. “It’s very rewarding,” she said from her donor bed on the CBC Bloodmobile. “I feel blessed and grateful to be able to do it. It’s painless and very rewarding to get a phone call saying your blood was used by someone who needed it.” Amanda’s mother Jan Wintrow of Piqua was also on the Bloodmobile, making her first lifetime donation. “I came out because my daughter talked me into it!” she said. “When she first asked me, I said no. She said, ‘Why not?’ and before you know it, I was here!” Troy donor Rex Smallwood said he comes to Hero Day for many reasons. “My fiancé works at Gover, so I come to all the blood drives here.” Gover has hosted four blood drives in 2013.

Rex also comes for Hero Day’s patriotism. “The ceremony - the retirement of the flags – is real moving,” he said. Angela Cecil from Sidney made her 5th lifetime donation at Hero Day, and also came for the flag retirement ceremony. “We fly flags at our house all the time. We live out in the country,” she said. “I brought a lot – 13 or so. I’ve been saving them.” Angela’s flags were added to a giant bundle of flags mounted on a platform in the field behind the Gover dealership. “There’s between 600 to 800 flags,” said Paul Penny, a Covington member of the Veterans Elite Tribute Squad. “We can’t burn them all. Some will be taken back to the American Legion Post to burn next year.” The veterans stood at attention and saluted as the platform was ignited. A boil of deep red flames grew, topped by a tower of dark smoke that rose into the blue sky. It evoked another image that Americans will always associate with Patriot Day. When the flames died a fire crew moved in to hose down the remains. Hero Day is a crossroad between the past and the future. Harry Busse, a World War II reenactor from West Milton, is a member of the I Company, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment,

101st Airborne. He was one of a 1,000 people who took part in a D-Day reenactment at Lake Erie in Conneaut in June. “We brought guys in by landing craft and hit the beach,” he said. “Next year will be the 70th anniversary of D-Day and it will be big.” Nearby the reenactment tents, State Trooper James Boysell from the Piqua Post showed off a 2013 Dodge Charger, part of the patrol’s new fleet of cruisers. “It’s got a hemi in it, so there’s more power in these cars,” he said. “We went to the Mid-Ohio race track for a day of training on the performance and capabilities and the different maneuvers needed to drive

these cars.” For Gover, Hero Day marks the end of the road for a summer of displaying the Road King Classic motorcycle that will be the grand prize in the CBC King of the Road Summer 2013 Blood Drive. “I think it really went well,” said Greg Foughty, Gover operations manager and blood drive coordinator. “We had a lot of people talking about it.” “This is how we pay it forward,” said Gover Owner and Manager Tracy Gover. “CBC, Hero Day, our Poker Run. I’m honored to be able to make blood donations possible and know that they will help save lives. It’s very humbling.”

Health From page 1 On these points, caveat emptor: OBAMA: “Knowing you can offer your family the security of health care, that’s priceless. Now, you can do it for the cost of your cable bill, probably less than your cellphone bill. Think about that, good health insurance for the price of your cellphone bill or less.” — Speech in Largo, Md., on Thursday. THE FACTS: The family coverage you can get for the cost of a monthly cable or cellphone bill is going to expose you to a hefty share of your medical expenses. Looked at in terms of digital communications, it’s more like dial-up Internet than 4G. The cell-phone analogy has become the talking point of the week for administration officials pitching people on the health care markets opening for business Tuesday. Obama said earlier that of every 10 Americans who are uninsured, “six out of those 10 are going to be able to get covered for less than $100 a month, less than your cellphone bills.” He is referring to the cheapest of four major options offered by the new markets, the “bronze” plan. But, just like with auto insurance, premiums aren’t the only potential expense for a consumer. Those who choose bronze will have to pay 40 percent of their medical bills out of pocket through deductibles and copayments. A family’s share of medical costs could go as high as $12,700 a year, or $6,350 for individuals, on top of those cell-phone-like premiums. Plans that cost more in premiums have the same caps on annual out-of-pocket expenses, but they cover more of the bills along the way. The platinum plan, which is the best, pays 90 percent of medical bills, for example. ——— OBAMA: “Premiums are going to be different in different parts of the country depending on how

much coverage you buy, but 95 percent of uninsured Americans will see their premiums cost less than was expected.” — Largo, Md., speech. THE FACTS: Less than who expected? Obama is referring to an administration analysis that finds premiums are coming in 16 percent lower than had been estimated by experts at the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. Independent analysts find similar results. But it’s a stretch to suggest that numbers crunched by CBO’s experts would reflect the expectations of regular consumers. The new insurance markets are for people who don’t have access to coverage on the job. Many will have been uninsured, and they may be surprised when confronted with potentially significant out-of-pocket costs in addition to their monthly premiums. People in the other big group of customers now buy their own individual policies. Current individual coverage is notoriously skimpy, and “Obamacare” plans will provide broader medical benefits and more robust financial protections if you get sick. Although many consumers will qualify for tax credits to offset their premiums, they are likely to pay more than now because they’re getting a better product. ——— REP. KEVIN McCARTHY, R-Calif.: “When we started this health care debate, the president led with a very big promise to the American people: If you like the health care that you have, that you currently have, you can keep it.” — At a Sept. 20 House Republican rally after passage of the bill that would finance the government on condition the health care law is starved of money. HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY KATHLEEN SEBELIUS: “The big employers are already in the market. Their plans won’t change, and actually that’s one thing that

we need to remind everybody. If you have insurance with your employer that you like, if it works for you, if your employer is a state or city government, a large employer, if you’re in Medicare, if you have veteran’s benefits, your patient protections are already in place. Nothing changes in this new market.” — CNN, Thursday. THE FACTS: McCarthy is correct, Obama said exactly that. It was an empty promise, made repeatedly. Sebelius picks her words more carefully but still offers misleading assurances. Nothing in the health care law guarantees that people can keep the health insurance they already have. Costs can rise, benefits can change and employers can drop coverage. Insurance policies that are offered must now meet minimum standards, covering more preventive services, for example, and larger employers that don’t offer insurance to workers will face penalties when that provision of the law, delayed by Obama, comes into effect. But that doesn’t mean the status quo goes on for those who like what they’ve got now. Some larger companies are already curtailing their coverage to avoid taxes that start in 2018 on high-value plans, those worth $10,200 or more for individual coverage and $27,500 for family policies. The AFL-CIO, whose member unions had supported the law, now says it is being implemented in a way that is “highly disruptive” to some union health plans, driving up costs for these plans to a point that workers and companies must abandon them. Continuing a long-term trend, many companies are shifting more costs to employees through higher premiums, deductibles and copayments. Sebelius is on firm ground in stating that “your patient protections are already in place” because the law contains a range of new protec-

tions against lifetime caps on benefits, overly discriminatory pricing and more. But “nothing changes” for those with good insurance? Not so. The landscape is already shifting. ——— OBAMA: “Our deficits are now coming down so quickly that by the end of this year, we will have cut them in more than half since I took office.” — Sept. 20 speech at Ford plant near Kansas City, Mo. THE FACTS: Yes, but. When Obama took office in January 2009, the deficit he inherited was $1.4 trillion. The Congressional Budget Office recently estimated it will be $642 billion for the budget year ending Monday, down by roughly half since Obama became president. An estimated $78 billion of that deficit reduction comes from automatic across-the-board spending cuts, called sequestration, that began taking effect in March — over Obama’s protests. As well, tax increases early this year have brought in more revenue. The economic recovery also has resulted in higher tax payments. Deficits, though, don’t tell much about the country’s total indebtedness because they only represent a oneyear comparison of revenues and spending. While annual deficits are declining, the national debt — the accumulation of deficits going back to the days of George Washington — is still rising. It stood at $10.6 trillion the day Obama took office. It’s now $16.7 trillion, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt. Thus, the national debt has increased by $6.1 trillion under Obama — the largest increase to date under any president, and a reflection in part of the deep recession early in his first term. The next highest was the $4.9 trillion added to the debt during the eightyear presidency of George W. Bush. Despite shrinking deficits, the debt is still ris-

ing because the U.S. government still must borrow 19 cents of every dollar it spends. ——— OBAMA: “Raising the debt ceiling is not the same as approving more spending, any more than making your monthly payments adds to the total cost of your truck. You don’t say, ‘Well, I’m not gonna — I’m not gonna pay my bill, my note for my truck because I’m gonna save money.’ No, you’re not saving money. You already bought the truck, right? … So raising the debt ceiling, it doesn’t cost a dime. It does not add a penny to our deficits. ” — Speech at Ford plant. THE FACTS: Raising the debt ceiling is not the same as a consumer merely making monthly payments on existing debt. It’s very much like a consumer getting approved for a higher cap on a credit card. It doesn’t mean the consumer will necessarily spend more, but it makes higher spending possible. In the government’s case, it has to have a higher credit limit so it can keep borrowing to make necessary payments. Borrowing to pay interest on existing debt as well as the bills is a recipe for deep trouble for consumers. But governments don’t — and really, can’t — handle their budgets as typical households do, despite the kitchen-table analogies that politicians in both parties love to make. ——— SEN. TED CRUZ, R-Texas: “Today, the House of Representatives did what Washington pundits only a few weeks ago said was impossible: A strong bipartisan majority voted to defund Obamacare.” — Statement after the Sept. 20 House vote. McCARTHY: “That’s why today when we acted, it wasn’t just a group of Republicans, but it was a bipartisan vote. Let me state that again because I want to make sure you write it correctly.

(Laughter in the room). It was a bipartisan vote because we’re Americans.” — At the post-vote House GOP rally Sept. 20. THE FACTS: Still chuckling. Bipartisan might be in the eye of the beholder but the vote passing the resolution was far from it. Only two Democrats voted with the Republican majority, Reps. Mike McIntyre of North Carolina and Jim Matheson of Utah. Only one Republican voted with the Democrats, Virginia Rep. Scott Rigell. The 230-189 vote illustrated bitter partisan divisions, not a harmonious we’re-allAmericans moment. A strong bipartisan vote to do away with the health care law remains impossible. ——— HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER ERIC CANTOR, R-Va.: “We’re seeing our economy turn from a fulltime job economy into a part-time job economy.” — Cantor blamed this on “Obamacare” in the House GOP rally after the budget vote. SEBELIUS: “Actually that just isn’t true. What we see is an increase in full-time jobs. There’s a decrease in the number of Americans working parttime hours.” — On CNN, Thursday. THE FACTS: Cantor’s statement reflects fears of what might happen over time. Sebelius’ statement rests on statistics, though selective ones. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the number of people working part-time involuntarily — because of slack work or business conditions or because they can’t find full-time jobs — was 7.9 million in August. That’s down by a hair from a year earlier, when it was 8 million. In that time, the average weekly hours worked also went up marginally. And unemployment overall dropped to 7.3 percent from 8.1 percent. These figures support Sebelius.

Loss of Bryant overshadows big win Jim Naveau Civitas Media

COLUMBUS – The big question in the week leading up to Ohio State’s 31-24 win over Wisconsin on Saturday night was if the Buckeyes’ front seven on defense could stop Wisconsin’s nationally ranked running game. But by halfway through the game, the bigger question was what was the problem with OSU’s defensive backfield. And after the game, things got even worse for that part of the defense. Starting safety Christian Bryant suffered a broken ankle on the next-to-last play of Saturday night’s game, creating a big hole in a defensive backfield that already appeared in need of a patch or two after Wisconsin’s Joel Stave threw for 295 yards. Bryant is apparently finished for the season, a situation that had Ohio State coach Urban Meyer slapping the lectern in his postgame press conference. “That’s tough news. He’s just devastated. That’s concern No. 1,” Meyer said. “Concern one, two and three is who is going to fill his spot, who is going to assume his leadership responsibility.” Linebacker Josh Perry said, “Man, we’re all torn up about that. I was just down there

talking with Curtis Grant about it. That’s a big loss. He’s one of the guys who is a leader for us – a guy we trust and count on. We’re going to have to work to fill that void but I think we have enough depth to do that.” Grant said, “It hits hard. It really hits hard. I can’t really explain it. It’s kind of got me down right now but we have to bounce back and do it for him.” Defensive lineman Joel Hale said, “That hurts. CB is my

dude. We just have to keep going. He’s a great energy provider on the field and everything. That’s a big loss.” Backups Corey (Pittsburgh) Brown, Ron Tanner and Vonn Bell could be the first players who try to fill in for Bryant. Wisconsin came into the game averaging 349 yards a game rushing but got only 104 yards on the ground against Ohio State. “We had to show some peo-

ple what we could do and I think we did that,” Perry said. “People always have doubts about the front seven, especially young guys. It was good to go out there and show them what we really could do.” No. 4 Ohio State (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) will get another challenge on defense this Saturday night at Northwestern. The Wildcats (4-0, 0-0 Big Ten) rank fourth in the Big Ten in scoring at 41.2 points a game.

NOTES: THANKS FOR ASKING: Quarterback Braxton Miller says he is completely recovered from the sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee that kept him out of nearl y three games. “It’s 100 percent,” Miller said after Saturday night’s game. NO GUITON, ALMOST NO HALL: Senior tailback Jordan Hall got only one carry against Wisconsin after being Ohio State’s leading rusher after four games. He averaged 17 carries a game in the first four games. Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton did not play after throwing 12 touchdown passes in his previous three games while Miller was recovering from his injury. “There was no issue. Just a coach’s decision,” Meyer said about Hall’s limited playing time and Guiton spending the whole game on the sideline. DIPLOMATIC ANSWER: When Grant was asked to compare the pre-game speech the team got from LeBron James with Meyer’s pre-game speech, he said, “We got two great speeches and it got us motivated to come out and win.” KEEPING IT CLOSE: Wisconsin’s last 12 losses, dating back to October 2010, have all been by a touchdown or less.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Like he always pretended to do his backyard, Brian Hoyer guided the Browns to victory. Hoyer, the local kid who always dreamed of being Cleveland’s quarterback, threw two touchdown passes in his first start at home to lead the Browns to a 17-6 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Hoyer’s 1-yard TD pass to Chris Ogbonnaya with 4:54 left gave the Browns (2-2) an 11-point lead and Cleveland turned it over to its vastly improved defense. In his second start in place of injured Brandon Weeden, Hoyer finished 25 of 38 for 269 yards and no interceptions. He threw a 2-yard TD pass in the first half to tight end Jordan Cameron, who had 10 catches for 91 yards. The Bengals (2-2) couldn’t get anything going on offense and Andy Dalton was intercepted by Buster Skrine with 3:43 left, ending any chance of a comeback.

Cleveland limited the Bengals to 63 rushing yards and cornerback Joe Haden contained wide receiver A.J. Green. Hoyer began the season as Cleveland’s No. 3 quarterback. But after Weeden went down with a sprained right thumb, Browns coach Rob Chudzinski named Hoyer his starter, jumping him ahead of backup Jason Campbell on the depth chart. Last week, Hoyer threw three touchdowns to rally the Browns to a 31-27 win at Minnesota. Weeden began throwing the ball again this week, but wasn’t able to play. Now, he could be relegated to watching Hoyer from the sideline for the remainder of the season. Clinging to a 10-6 lead, Hoyer drove the Browns 91 yards for the clinching score. Hoyer showed gorgeous touch on a 31-yard pass to Cameron to put the Browns at Cincinnati’s 24. Willis McGahee, who promised a “dramatic” improvement in

Cleveland’s running game this week, carried three times to get the ball to the 1 and Hoyer took it from there, throwing his second TD to Ogbonnaya. Once Ogbonnaya crossed the goal line, Hoyer, who grew up going to Browns games with his dad at old Cleveland Stadium, ran toward midfield with his right index finger extended in the air. He then stopped and pumped his fist in celebration as a crowd of 71,481, which included numerous family members and friends, screamed along with him. The Bengals were out of rhythm from the start on both sides of the ball. Cincinnati was missing two starters in its secondary — cornerback Leon Hall and safety Reggie Nelson — because of injury and the Bengals’ offense sputtered for all 60 minutes. Mike Nugent’s two field goals were all the Bengals could muster against Cleveland’s swarming defense. Green had seven catches for 51 mostly

meaningless yards as Haden blanketed all afternoon. Dalton finished 23 of 42 for 206 yards. Billy Cundiff missed two field goals for Cleveland, but followed an embarrassing moment by kicking a 51-yarder to give the Browns a 10-3 lead in the third quarter. After jogging onto the field, Cundiff tried a warmup kick, slipped and fell on his backside. He got up, dusted himself off and shook off two misses in the first half with a crucial make. Cleveland had wasted good field position on consecutive possessions in Cincinnati territory before Cundiff provided the Browns a little cushion. Nugent’s 43-yard field goal pulled the Bengals within 10-6 late in the third. Hoyer capped a 95-yard scoring drive in the first quarter with his 2-yard touchdown pass to Cameron, who had three TD catches last week against the Vikings.

Playoff tonight Indians clinch wild card for 2nd wild card

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The surging Cleveland Indians earned their first postseason berth since 2007, beating the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Sunday to clinch an AL wild card as Ubaldo Jimenez tied a career high with 13 strikeouts. Nick Swisher homered in the first inning for the Indians, who became the first major league team to win its final 10 regular-season games since the 1971 Baltimore Orioles finished with 11 straight victories, according to STATS. Cleveland will host Tampa Bay or Texas in the onegame AL wild card playoff on Wednesday night. Jimenez (13-9) gave up one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Indians, who became the first team to sweep seven four-game series in one regular season since

the 1943 St. Louis Cardinals. After the final out, Cleveland players mobbed each other on the diamond in a jubilant celebration. Scott Diamond (6-13) gave up four runs — two earned — and seven hits for the Twins (66-96). Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes also drove in runs for the Indians, who entered the game with a one-game lead over Tampa Bay and Texas. If the Indians had lost Sunday and the Rays and Rangers won, two days of tiebreaker games would have been needed to determine the wild cards. Jimenez and the Indians wanted no part of that. After giving up a leadoff single to Alex Presley in the first, the right-hander retired 17 straight. He was on a run of five strikeouts in a row when he walked Presley with

two outs in the sixth and gave up a single to Brian Dozier. But Jimenez threw a called third strike past Trevor Plouffe to end the threat. Jimenez went 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA and 51 strikeouts in six September starts. Swisher’s two-run homer landed just over the flower bed in left field in the first inning and the Indians tacked on two more in the sixth thanks in part to throwing errors by shortstop Pedro Florimon and Diamond. Cleveland lost at least 93 games in three of the previous four seasons. But they increased their wins total by 24 games this year behind a strong pitching staff and Terry Francona, a rejuvenated manager who has rebounded after a messy end to his tenure in Boston in 2011. Their 21-6 record in September is the best in the majors.

Associated Press

The Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers are pushing this regular season to game No. 163. On a Sunday punctuated by Miami’s Henderson Alvarez pitching a no-hitter, Tampa Bay and Texas both won and wound up even, forcing a tiebreaker for the second AL wild-card spot. The Rays will play at Texas on Monday night, with the winner visiting Cleveland on Wednesday night in another all-or-nothing matchup. Rangers rookie Martin Perez starts against reigning AL Cy Young winner David Price. Texas gets a boost, too — All-Star slugger Nelson Cruz will be active after his 50-game penalty from Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis drug scandal. “He’s served his suspension,” Rays star Evan Longoria said. “It is what it is. Justice has been served.” Asked if he expected to play, Cruz said: “I think so.” It will be baseball’s first tiebreaker — officially, this is a regular-season game and the stats count — since Minnesota beat Detroit 6-5 in 12 innings for the 2009 AL Central title. What was supposed to be the final day of the regular season began with the possibility of a three-way tie for a pair of AL wild-card spots.

Lehman edged by Greeneview The Lehman boys soccer team lost a close 2-1 match against the Greenview Rams Saturday afternoon. Lehman’s Peter Comer got the scoring started with a 40-yard rocket shot from straight away with 11:30 left in the first half. That was Lehman’s only shot of the half. But the 1-0 lead held up until the second half. The Rams’ Blaze Haines tied the score with 18:23 left in the second half and 10 minutes later Jordan Lilley scored the winner on a free kick after a hand ball by Lehman just outside the box. “I thought we played better today than we have the last couple of games,” Lehman coach Tom Thornton said. ” We just need to keep playing together as a team and score when the opportunity is there.” Lehman drops to 4-5-2 while Greenview moves to 8-3-1. Lehman returns to action on Tuesday against Lima Temple Christian. Lady Cavs win 10th The Lehman girls soc-

cer team took Greeneview Saturday at home and posted a 4-0 win, thanks to three goals in four minutes in the first half that broke a scoreless tie. The win put the Lady Cavs at 10-1-1 on the season heading into a big game Thursday at Troy Christian. It will be “Kick for a Cure” night, with all proceeds going to charity. With nine minutes left in the first half, Taylor Lachey scored off an assist from Madeline Franklin to start the string of goals for Lehman. Four minutes later, Ashley Keller got the ball to Hannah Fogt on a lob, and she headed it in. Then one minute later, Lauren Goettemoeller assisted on a goal by Keller. In the second half, Lachey assisted on a goal by Katelyn O’Leary. Grace Frantz finished with three saves for Lehman. Greeneview is now 9-3.

Reds fall 4-2, playoffs next CINCINNATI (AP) — Things were looking up for the Reds at the start of the week. They’d clinched a playoff spot and had a chance to win home-field advantage for their first playoff game. Their hitting went away, and so did all of those hometown plans. The Reds dropped their fifth game in a row Sunday, ending the regular season with a 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cincinnati’s losing streak matched its longest of the season and cost the Reds a chance to host the NL wild-card game. Instead, they’ll head to PNC Park for a rematch with the Pirates on Tuesday night. “We’ve been beat up pretty good all week,” manager Dusty Baker

said. “What I’m hearing around here is: We’ve lost already. This isn’t the way I wanted to get in, but how many teams are in? Five? We’re one of the five.” And they’re heading back to a familiar place to face a team in the playoffs for the first time in 21 years. The Pirates and Reds have met five times in the playoffs: 1970, 1972, 1975, 1979 and 1990, when the Reds won their last World Series title. The wild-card matchup features right-hander Johnny Cueto (5-2), who is 8-2 career at PNC Park, against left-hander Francisco Liriano (16-8), who is 0-3 in four starts against Cincinnati this season. First, there was one game to fin-

ish the schedule on Sunday, and it meant little to either team. The Pirates played mostly backups. Pedro Alvarez was in the lineup, giving him a chance to try to win the NL home run crown outright. He walked, was hit by a pitch and popped out, finishing tied with Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt at 36 homers. Baker started his regulars but began substituting after the third inning. Corky Miller had a tworun double. “I don’t think we’re worried about the way we finished the season,” catcher Ryan Hanigan said. “I think everybody’s excited about the opportunity. All of that is in the past. Everything is ahead of us.”

A record 8th win at Dover for Johnson DOVER, Del. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. His slice of track history was more than just another milestone to tack on his bio. His latest win at his favorite track put the Chase field on notice that his run at a sixth championship in the No. 48 is gaining steam. Johnson never let Dale Earnhardt Jr. catch him down the stretch Sunday and won for a record eighth time at Dover International Speedway. Johnson had shared the mark of seven wins on the concrete mile with Bobby Allison and Richard Petty. “Truthfully, it was the first thought that went through my mind when I crossed the finish line,” Johnson said. “It wasn’t long after I thought about the impact of winning in the Chase.” Johnson’s win bumped him from third to second in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. Matt Kenseth, who won the first two Chase races, holds an eight-point over Johnson as the Chase heads to Kansas for the fourth race. Led by Johnson’s fifth win, the entire top 10 was made up of Chase drivers. Joey Logano, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch rounded out the top five. Kevin Harvick, Kenseth, Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle and Clint Bowyer completed the top 10. “You’ve got to win when you’re at your best track,” Johnson said. “We had to win here today. I think any points on the 18 or 20 would have been a very good day. Max points, it’s an awesome day.” Not so much for Earnhardt, who had one of the fastest cars, but he missed pit road and gave up the lead early in the race. He had a strong enough No. 88 Chevrolet to get back into the race and contend for his first win of the season but couldn’t pass Johnson. “We left everybody in the mirror. We were clicking off some laps,” Earnhardt said. “But just not fast enough to get to Jimmie.” Kenseth kept his points lead even as he fell short in trying to become the first driver to win the first three Chase races. “For how bad I felt like we struggled with the car, that was a decent finish,” Kenseth said. Johnson dominated as he usually does at Dover and led 243 of the 400 laps to help extend his Chase record with his 23rd career win in 93 starts in NASCAR’s version of the playoffs. He swept Dover in 2002 and 2009 and won

races in 2005, 2010 and 2012. He jumped a restart and served a pass-through penalty that cost him the win in the spring race. Crew chief Chad Knaus brought the same car back for this one and, this time, Johnson was pretty much flawless. Johnson has his sights set on a bigger piece of NASCAR history. He’s in the hunt for his sixth Cup championship, which would put him one behind Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. for most in series history. “Jimmie is probably the most underrated champion we have in this industry,” Knaus said. “He is by far and above the most powerful driver over the course of the last 25, 35 years in this sport.” Johnson caught a huge break when Earnhardt slowed during a greenflag pit stop and missed the entrance to pit road. He went from holding a 3.7-second lead on Johnson to trailing by more than 9 seconds after he finally made his stop. Johnson took the lead — and took off for his 65th victory in 428 career starts. Even smart pit strategy that included a late fourtire stop wasn’t enough to boost Earnhardt past his Hendrick Motorsports teammate. “The mistake I made coming on to pit road and missing pit road completely (cost us),” Earnhardt said. “If I had not given up that track position and had a smart enough race to keep the lead when it counted, right at the end we might have won the race. It would have been hard to get by us just like it was hard to get by Jimmie.” Other Chase driver finishes include, Kasey Kahne in 13th, Kurt Busch 21st, and Carl Edwards 35th. Edwards entered fourth in the standings but plummeted to 11th once a late tire issue sent him to the garage. Most drivers insisted this weekend that it would not be a three-driver Chase. With seven races left, Kyle Busch is third and only 12 points back. But Harvick and Gordon are 39 points out, and Biffle and Newman are both more than 40 points behind. It’s going to take major problems out of the top three and an improbable winning streak from some drivers in the back to shake up the standings. Kyle Busch has a pair of seconds and a fifth to open the Chase. “It’s certainly appealing and you could be happy with it,” he said, “but we’re a little disappointed at the same time.”

Jackson Center won over Covington in high school volleyball Saturday 25-4, 25-9, 25-17. Haley Elchert and Cassie Meyer had eight kills each, Jayel Frye had 20 assists and Kamryn Elchert nine ace serves. Jackson also won 25-8, 25-7. NK runner-up VAN WERT — New Knoxville was runner-up in the Van Wert Invitational, beating Lima Shawnee 25-6, 25-20, and Van Wert 25-13, 27-25 before losing to Versailles in the championship 25-11, 25-17. Haley Horstman finished with 15 kills, 41 digs, 30 assists and four aces in the tournament, Meg Reineke had 44 digs, 18 kills and 14 assists, Kenzie Schroer had 20 digs, 13 kills and 15 assists, Kayln Schroer totaled 67 digs, Abby Rohrbach had 36 digs and Madison Lammers 12 kills and 20 digs.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Sidney Daily News, Monday, September 30, 2013

Fundraiser walk this Saturday PIQUA — The American Cancer Society has announced a fundraising event, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, by northern Miami Valley counties, Miami, Darke and Shelby, Saturday, in Fountain Park in Piqua. The event will begin at 9 a.m. in the park at Forest Avenue and Echo Lake Drive. At press time, 36 teams had registered to participate. To register a team, visit www. NorthernMiamiValley or call 888-227-6446, ext. 4209.

Wilson offers digital x-rays Women who undergo routine mammograms at Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney now have the latest diagnostic technology available to them, digital mammography. Digital mammography is different from conventional mammography in how the image of the breast is viewed and, more importantly, manipulated. Digital mammography allows the radiologist to view the X-ray image more closely, zeroing in on suspicious or concerning areas. The radiologist can magnify the images, increase or decrease the contrast and invert the black and white values while reading the images. These features allow the radiologist to evaluate microcalcifications, or tiny deposits of calcium in the breast that cannot be felt, but can be detected on a mammogram, and focus on areas of concern. Though the technology is relatively new, the process for getting a mammogram has not really changed, although ergonomic, spring-loaded paddles are a feature of the new system, which may lead to a decrease in patient discomfort during the procedure. “Digital mammography may feel similar to conventional screening from a patient’s perspective, though women may notice shorter exam times and a reduction in call-backs to obtain additional images,” said Tony Linkmeyer,

administrative director of imaging services. “Demand for the digital mammography is high, and women are excited and pleased that Wilson offers this state-of-the-art technology.” With digital mammography come many benefits. The images are clearer and allow the radiologist to magnify specific areas of the image and adjust the contrast so abnormalities are easier to see. This results in earlier diagnoses and lesions are often caught when they are still confined to the breast and not spreading to other parts of the body. Earlier detection means higher success rates in treating cancer. There is also a reduction in radiation exposure. Women will experience a 30 percent reduction with the new digital mammography system. With digital mammography, the technologists can view the images captured right in the exam room reducing the time it takes to complete each exam. Due to improved image quality and the ability to manipulate the image, there are fewer number of images that may need to be taken. The Francis Women’s Center uses a Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS), a networked system to accurately store and retrieve digital images. With this system, radiologists at multiple locations may view and interpret images simultaneously. To supplement this

enhanced technology, Wilson also offers digital Computer-Aided Detection (CAD). CAD highlights characteristics commonly associated with breast cancer and provides a “second read” of the mammograms by a computer. When activated, it flags abnormalities to help the radiologist detect early breast cancer. CAD is, in essence, a second set of eyes to support and enhance the radiologist’s judgment. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics demonstrate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her life. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s survival. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 97 percent. “We are very excited to be able to offer our patients the latest technology for breast cancer detection,” said Linkmeyer. “Each and every patient at the Francis Women’s Center receives personalized care designed to meet her individual needs. Our staff is highly trained and our equipment is state-of-the art,” he added. “We are committed to providing exceptional care to the women in the community.” For information on digital mammography at Wilson, call 498-5533 or to schedule a mammogram, call 497-5656.

Mammography Q & A What is a mammogram? A mammogram is a low dose x-ray picture of the breast. It can find both cancerous and non-cancerous growths at their earliest stages. How important is early detection of breast cancer? Estimates show that one out of every eight women will develop breast cancer at some time during her life. Breast cancer is highly treatable in its earliest stages. Up to 97 percent of breast cancers can be treated successfully, if they are found early and have not spread beyond the breast. Who should get a mammogram? The American Cancer Society recommends that a woman should start getting

yearly mammograms beginning at age 40. Talk to your healthcare provider, he or she may recommend a different schedule based on your risk for breast cancer. A baseline mammogram is suggested between the ages of 35 and 39. No one in my family has ever had breast cancer; do I still need a mammogram? Family history of breast cancer is a risk factor, but 80 percent of women who get breast cancer have no family history of the disease. All women should take advantage of getting a mammogram. What should I expect when I get a mammogram? Mammograms are quick and easy. First

you stand in front of a special low dose x-ray machine. The radiology technologist then lifts each breast and places it on a platform that holds the x-ray film. A clear plastic plate then presses the breast against the platform. Compression is needed to make sure the x-rays show as much of the breast as possible. This may be uncomfortable for a few seconds but it helps get a clear picture. The breast is x-rayed from the top and from the side. The same procedure is then followed for the other breast. What is the difference between a screening and a diagnostic mammogram? A screening mammogram is done to detect unsuspected breast changes at an early stage. A diagnostic mammogram is

done when a woman is experiencing a problem such as a lump, discharge or pain. How can I prepare for my mammogram? Schedule your mammogram the week after your period when your breasts are less likely to be tender. You will be asked not to wear deodorant, lotion or powder on your breast or under your arms. In some cases these substances can cause dots on your mammogram that look like abnormalities on the x-ray. Are mammograms safe? Mammography equipment today uses very small doses of radiation and does not cause an increased risk of breast cancer.

the drug Perjeta as initial treatment for breast cancer were more likely to be cancer-free at the time of surgery than women who received older drug combinations. Although the results come from mid-stage trials of the drug, FDA scientists recommended accelerating approval of the drug. That step is reserved for groundbreaking drugs to treat life-threatening diseases. Perjeta was first approved last summer to treat women with a subtype of breast cancer that has already spread to other parts of the body.

But Roche’s Genentech (NYSE:DNA) unit is now seeking approval to use the drug at a much earlier stage of the disease: after diagnosis and before surgery to remove the tumor. Surgery to remove tumors is the first step in treating virtually all forms of cancer. If approved, Perjeta would be the first cancer drug approved for use as a pre-surgical step. Using cancer drugs before surgery is still experimental, but doctors hope the approach could help shrink tumors to make them easier to remove. In some breast cancer cases, a tumor

that is easier to operate on could allow women to keep their breasts, rather than having them surgically removed. On Thursday, the FDA will ask an outside panel of cancer specialists whether Perjeta’s benefits outweigh its risks for treating early-stage breast cancer. Among other questions, the experts will be asked whether the preliminary results reported by Genentech are likely to result in longer overall survival for patients. The government agency isn’t required to follow the group’s advice, though it often does.

Positive attitude keeps patient going Patricia Ann Speelman

Diane Buck, of Sidney, was faithful about scheduling regular mammograms, which routinely showed her to be in good health. So she was surprised in May 2006 while showering and conducting a self-exam of her breasts to find something “real different,” she said. She went to see Dr. Elizabeth Brandewie, who “found something right away” and scheduled Buck to have an ultrasound test that same day. Less than two weeks later, Buck was sent to the James Cancer Center at Ohio State University in Columbus. What she had was a golf-ball-sized lump in her left breast. “Why it didn’t show up on a mammogram, nobody can tell me,” Buck said. Surgeons in Columbus performed a mastectomy, taking out the 9-centimeter cancer and 19 lymph nodes, five of which were cancerous. Buck underwent chemotherapy every Friday thereafter for 10 weeks. A librarian at Emerson Elementary School, she continued to work a few days each week during the ordeal. “I tried to work as much as I could and stay positive,” she said. In October 2006, a small lump developed in her right breast. “So I chose to have another mastectomy,” she said. Buck was in remission

for four years. She revisited the James Cancer Center every three months and paid regular visits to her family doctor in Sidney, Frederick Simpson. It was Simpson who discovered high calcium levels in her blood in October 2011. “That’s a warning sign,” Buck said. An appointment with an oncologist in Columbus confirmed their fears. Cancer had developed in her liver, where they found 20 spots, and in her bones. “She gave me six months to live two years ago,” Buck said. “It’s terminal. It won’t go into remission. It was a shock when it came back the third time. The disease forced me into retirement.” During the last two years, she has undergone various types of chemotherapy, including experimental and trial ones, multiple times.” Some of them have required treatments as often as once a week. Tumors shrank. New tumors developed. Buck remains hopeful. “I believe in miracles. One of these days, they’ll find something. I think one day they’ll find a cure. If (the experiments help) someone else, even if it doesn’t help me, that’s OK. I’m here to help others,” Buck said. She started a cancer support prayer group with Mary Stahlman seven years ago to share what she has learned through her ordeal. The group meets at 7 p.m., the first Monday of the month, at the Sidney First United

Methodist Church. “Everyone is welcome,” she said. Part of what has kept her alive is her attitude. “My doctors in Columbus say being positive is what has kept me going,” she said. “Cancer is a blessing and a curse. It has allowed me to get back to things I love, like being with my family. The important thing has been to focus on what I really

love and to make time to do it, like traveling and eating ice cream for breakfast. Cancer has taught me what is important to me and how I want to live the rest of my life, regardless of how long it is. You’ve got to stay positive.” When patients have chemotherapy, they are given a choice to take the treatment sitting in a chair or lying in a bed. Buck has

never chosen a bed. Now treated every month, she walks around the oncology area with the port she had put into her chest because her veins would no longer access blood draws. She talks with fellow patients to lift their spirits. “When I talk to someone, I don’t like the gloom and doom. I’ve lost my hair four times. It always comes back, different

color, different texture, but it comes back. My prayer the whole time I’m in there is for the young ones,” she said. At home, “I’m positive even on a bad day. When I have a lot of pain, I think of good things like my children and grandchildren. They’ve done so many great things. They’ve made me so proud. “I couldn’t have gone through any of this without (my husband),” she said. “When you go through cancer, your whole family goes through it.” She and Bob have been married for 38 1/2 years. “If she starts to feel down, I try to keep her mind off it by talking about our grandkids or going to do something,” Bob said. “I make her laugh. There are jokes I do by acting my normal personality. I like to cut up. I do that kind of thing all the time to make people laugh.” She stays busy, walking for excercise “every day that I can” and going to lunch with retired friends. She has written out birthday cards for her two grandsons, now 3 and 2, for each of their birthdays through when they turn 21. At each year, she wrote about what she did at that age and what her hopes are for them. “Every day I wake up, I’m thankful for another day,” Diane said. “There is still joy and hope in my life, and I wish the same thing for all of my fellow survivors.”
