Village notes another positive month for finances JACKSON CENTER — August was another positive month for the village in terms of finances, Jackson Center Village Council learned recently. According to the financial report presented to council, month-to-date revenue exceeded expenses by $146,000 August. The year-to-date revenue is $203,000 over year-todate expenditures. Income tax receipts for August were roughly $74,000. This is $14,000 more than last August. This is the second highest August receipts the village has had in the past nine years. Year-to-date income tax receipts are running $38,000 ahead at this time. Council voted to accept the report. In other business, council: • Adopted an ordinance establishing a utility policy manual for terms and conditions for utility services provided by the village. This ordinance combines the different utility policies for water, sewer and electric into one policy. • Adopted an ordinance establishing a general fee schedule for services provided by the village All of the fees have been pulled out of the various utility policies and put into a general fee schedule. All of the fees that the village charges with the exception of electric, water, and sewer usage rates are listed on this schedule. The $25 fee for an electric socket was eliminated off the fee schedule. • Passed a resolution accepting the amounts and rates as determined by the Budget Commission and authorizing the necessary tax levies and certifying them to the county

auditor. This resolution accepts the amount and rates of the current levies that are in place for the village. The amounts have been determined by the Budget Commission to be $42,966 for inside 10-mill limit and $42,900 for the current expenses levy outside the 10-mill limit. The current expenses levy will expire at the end of this year. • Passed a resolution to approve the execution of an Efficiency Smart schedule with American Municipal Power Inc. The agreement that AMP Inc. and Vermont Energy Investment Corp. entered into effective June 4, 2010, will expire Dec. 31 for energy efficiency program known as Efficiency Smart. The village desires to continue to receive Efficiency Smart services. This service helps the village deliver a professional, effective energy efficiency program to our residential, commercial and industrial customers to help them save money on their electric service. This resolution will authorize the village administrator to continue the village’s participation in the Efficiency Smart program for the 2014-16 term. • Passed a resolution authorizing the village to prepare and submit an application to participate in the Ohio Public Works Commission State Capital Improvement and/or Local Transportation Improvement Program and to execute contracts as required. The village has been working with Fanning/ Howey Engineering Group on the wastewater treatment plant improvement project. They have developed a list of improve-

ments to be made and have given the village an estimated cost for those improvements. The village will have to prioritize the list as it will not be able to accomplish all of them, village officials said, and they are not sure at this time which items the village will do. In committee reports, the Public Property Committee issued a reminder that on Oct. 28, AMP Inc. will hold the Public Power Presentation & Open Forum at the Family Life Center. This presentation is open to all residents and businesses. In his report, Village Administrator Bruce Metz said Electric Department personnel read meters, hooked up new service on College Street, helped put in catch basins, changed a transformer in the alley behind post office, and hauled a mulch pile. Street Department personnel changed catch basins on Pike Street, read meters, and set up the park for Science Day. Water/wastewater personnel changed water meters to radioread. Metz said he attended a Mass Notification webinar and worked on the 2014 budget. Fire Chief Jerry Davis asked Mayor Scott Klopfenstein to accept the recommendation to appoint Chuck Wirick and Michael Lotz to a 12-month probationary position on the Fire Department. Council accepted the recommendation. Council went into an executive session to discuss the purchase or sale of real estate. Council came out of the session, but took no action before adjourning.

Ohio steps closer to executions State gives specialty drug-makers OK Julie Carr Smyth Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio could begin executing inmates with doses of a lethal injection drug prepared by specialized pharmacies under a change in its execution process prompted by difficulties securing the powerful sedative last used by the state. The new execution policy outlined by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction on Friday comes just days after the state’s last supplies of pentobarbital expired. The drug maker decided in 2011 to prohibit future sales of the product for use in capital punishment. The new policy will allow executioners to use an alternative intravenous drug combination — the sedative midazolam with the opiate hydromorphone — if expired pentobarbital is deemed unusable or if new supplies of the drug are unavailable. The state’s last dose of unexpired

pentobarbital was used to put condemned killer Harry Mitts to death Sept. 15 for shooting two people, including a suburban Cleveland police officer. The state would need to rely on compounding pharmacies for any new pentobarbital, a process that might also require legislation to protect those pharmacies from lawsuits by capital punishment opponents. It was not immediately clear which of the new options would be used in the November execution of Ronald Phillips, sentenced to die for raping and killing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter in Akron in 1993. A federal judge has indicated he’ll review the new policy before further executions go forward. The original manufacturer of pentobarbital, Denmark-based Lundbeck Inc., had put the drug off-limits for executions, and required that prohibition remain when it sold the product in 2011 to Lake Forest, Ill.-based Akorn Inc.

As a result, supplies had dried up in Ohio and around the country. Friday’s announcement is the third time the state has made a change related to the drug it uses in lethal injection. In 2009, Ohio switched to a single dose of sodium thiopental. In 2011, it switched to pentobarbital when the manufacturer of sodium thiopental also restricted its distribution. Among other states struggling to find alternatives are Georgia, Missouri and Arkansas. A legal challenge has placed Missouri’s proposal to use propofol on hold, and anesthesiologists are asking the state to reconsider out of fear it could lead to restrictions of the drug needed for hospital use. Arkansas’ governor has held off scheduling executions as the state’s Department of Correction plans to rewrite its lethal injection procedure to include a different drug or drugs and as prisoners continue to challenge the state’s new execution law in court.

The panel held its third meeting Friday in London. The group is scheduled to reconvene in two weeks. Since June, police have also been

COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich has picked the state’s deputy inspector general to lead the Ohio Department of Veterans Services. Kasich said Friday that retired U.S. Army Col. Tim Gorrell will take over as director of the veterans services agency Nov. 1.

Retired Air Force Col. Tom Moe announced his retirement as director in July. Gorrell was commissioned an Army second lieutenant in 1982. He served in Germany, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kuwait. Gorrell was chief of staff for the U.S. Third Army while in Kuwait.

The University of Akron graduate holds several military honors including the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star and the Meritorious Service Medal. Gorrell also is a past command inspector general of the Ohio National Guard.

Man again faces animal cruelty charges GOSHEN (AP) — An Ohio man, who was on probation for animal cruelty convictions, has pleaded not guilty to new charges of animal cruelty and failure to dispose of dead animals after cow carcasses and the bodies of four horses were found on his property. Authorities also found starving horses, goats, sheep and a cow last week on the property in Goshen, 20 miles northeast of Cincinnati, the Wilmington News Journal reported. The starving animals were taken in by a concerned person who is caring for

them, Clinton County Sheriff Ralph D. Fizer Jr. said. Kenneth Huffaker, 56, who pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges earlier this year, was arrested on new charges of animal cruelty and his supervised probation was revoked, authorities said. Huffaker was released on bond, pending an Oct. 15 preliminary hearing. An attorney for him was not named in court records, and his home phone wasn’t accepting messages Friday.

Court records show that Huffaker was on probation with conditions, including community service for The Humane Society, after pleading guilty to two counts of animal cruelty. In that case, sheriff’s Deputy Victor Wright said four dogs were found in a crate without food or water and were standing in about 4 inches of mud mixed with feces and water. The dogs were taken to a veterinarian and were found to be about 30 pounds underweight. Thirteen dead animals also were found on the property.

In a court filing Friday, attorneys for Robert Poandl (POH’-andel) argue that the jury verdict on Sept. 20 was the result of “passion and emotion” and that no rational trier of fact would have found the priest guilty. Prosecutors told jurors that Poandl took the boy to Spencer, W.Va., in August 1991 and raped him while visiting a church there. Poandl’s attorneys argued at trial and in Friday’s court document that the allegations are false and that the boy wasn’t even on the trip. No sentencing date has been set for Poandl, from the suburban Cincinnatibased Glenmary Home Missioners.

Today is Saturday, Oct. 5, the 278th day of 2013. There are 87 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 5, 1921, the World Series was carried on radio for the first time as Newark, N.J. station WJZ (later WABC) relayed a telephoned play-by-play account of the first game from the Polo Grounds, where the New York Giants were facing the New York Yankees, to a studio announcer who repeated the information on the air. (Although the Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.) On this date: In 1892, the Dalton Gang, notorious for its train robberies, was practically wiped out while attempting to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville, Kan. In 1910, Portugal was proclaimed a republic following the abdication of King Manuel II in the face of a coup d’etat. In 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon completed the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean, arriving in Washington state some 41 hours after leaving Japan. In 1941, former Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis — the first Jewish member of the nation’s highest court — died in Washington at age 84. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis. In 1953, Earl Warren was sworn in as the 14th chief justice of the United States, succeeding Fred M. Vinson. In 1962, The Beatles’ first hit recording, “Love Me Do,” was released in the United Kingdom by Parlophone Records. The first James Bond theatrical feature, “Dr. No” starring Sean Connery as Agent 007, premiered in London. In 1969, the British TV comedy program “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” made its debut on BBC 1. In 1970, British trade commissioner James Richard Cross was kidnapped in Canada by militant Quebec separatists; he was released the following December. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution granting honorary American citizenship to Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, credited with saving thousands of Hungarians, most of them Jews, from the Nazis during World War II. In 1988, Democrat Lloyd Bentsen lambasted Republican Dan Quayle during their vice-presidential debate, telling Quayle, “Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.” In 1990, a jury in Cincinnati acquitted an art gallery and its director of obscenity charges stemming from an exhibit of sexually graphic photographs by the late Robert Mapplethorpe.

Too-mobile home stolen

HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — Police in a rural upstate New York town are looking for a 70-foot-long mobile home that was stolen from a diner’s parking lot. The Washington County sheriff ’s office tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls ( ) that the mobile home had been placed on a trailer that was parked at a diner in the town of Hampton awaiting delivery to neighboring Vermont. Investigators say the owner had to have emergency surgery and when he came back to Hampton a few weeks later, the trailer with the $50,000, partially furnished mobile home was gone. Police say someone apparently hitched a truck to the trailer and towed it away late on the afternoon of Sept. 23, when a witness reported seeing it headed toward Vermont. ——— Information from: The Post-Star,

Prospect slim for quick end to shutdown David Espo Associated Press

WA S H I NGTO N — Prospects for a swift end to the 4-day-old partial government shutdown all but vanished Friday as lawmakers squabbled into the weekend and increasingly shifted their focus to a midmonth deadline for averting a threatened firstever default. “This isn’t some damn game,” said House Speaker

John Boehner, as the White House and Democrats held to their position of agreeing to negotiate only after the government is reopened and the $16.7 trillion debt limit raised. House Republicans appeared to be shifting their demands, de-emphasizing their previous insistence on defunding the health care overhaul in exchange for re-opening the government. Instead, they ramped up calls for cuts in federal benefit programs and

future deficits, items that Boehner has said repeatedly will be part of any talks on debt limit legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., also said the two issues were linked. “We not only have a shutdown, but we have the full faith and credit of our nation before us in a week or ten days,” he said. Reid and other Democrats blocked numerous attempts by Sen. Ted Cruz to approve House-passed bills reopening

portions of the government. The Texas Republican is a chief architect of the “Defund Obamacare” strategy and met earlier this week with allies in the House and an aide to Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., to confer on strategy. In a lengthy back-andforth with Reid and other Democrats, Cruz blamed them and the White House for the impasse and accused them of a “my way or the highway” attitude.

Fisherman says migrants too weak to grab lifesaver Andrea Rosa Colleen Barry Associated Press

LAMPEDUSA, Italy (AP) — The friends were heading out on a fishing trip, when one heard voices from the sea. Don’t be silly, Vito Fiorino told him — it’s only the seagulls’ early morning song. Then, about 500 yards (meters) from shore, he saw heads bobbing in the water. Dozens of Africans were floating, too weak to grab a life preserver and so slippery from gasoline that it was hard to pull them on board. Some grasped empty water bottles to stay afloat. “It was a scene from a film, something you hope never to see in life,” he told The Associated Press. “They were exhausted. When I threw the lifesaver, they had a hard time doing two strokes to reach it.” Fiorino says he and his friends were the first to

Karen threatens US mainland during quiet hurricane season Kevin McGill Stacey Plaisance Associated Press

BRAITHWAITE, La. — Pickups hauling boat trailers and flatbed trucks laden with crab traps exited vulnerable, low-lying areas of southeast Louisiana on Friday as Tropical Storm Karen headed toward the northern Gulf Coast, a late-arriving worry in what had been a slow hurricane season in the U.S. On Friday afternoon, Alabama joined Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida in declaring a state of emergency as officials and residents prepared for Karen, expected to near the central Gulf Coast on Saturday as a weak hurricane or tropical storm. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Interior Department recalled workers, furloughed because of the government shut down, to deal with the storm and help state and local agencies. Karen would be the second named storm of a quiet hurricane season to make landfall in the U.S. — the first since Tropical Storm Andrea hit Florida in June. Along with strong

winds, the storm was forecast to produce rainfall of 3 to 6 inches through Sunday night. Isolated rain totals of up to 10 inches were possible. Friday afternoon, Karen was about 235 miles south-southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Forecast tracks showed the storm possibly crossing the southeast Louisiana coast before veering eastward toward south Alabama and the Florida panhandle. But forecasters cautioned that the track was uncertain. “We are confident on a northeastward turn. Just not exactly sure where or when that turn will occur,” said Rick Knabb, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Conditions were not ripe for the storm’s strengthening. A hurricane watch was dropped Friday afternoon. A tropical storm watch stretched from the mouth of the Pearl River to Destin, Fla. A tropical storm warning was in effect from Morgan City, La., to the mouth of the Pearl.

reach the fiery wreck around 7 a.m. Thursday, sounding the alarm and saving 47 people before the Coast Guard and other vessels arrived to help, eventually rescuing a total of 155 people. The migrants told Fiorino they had been in the water for three hours. The scope of the tragedy at Lampedusa — with 111 bodies recovered so far and more than 200 missing, according to survivor accounts given to U.N. officials — has prompted outpourings of grief and calls for a comprehensive EU immigration policy to deal with the tens of thousands fleeing poverty and strife in Africa and the Middle East. On a pilgrimage to Assisi, Pope Francis called the tragedy a “day of tears” and denounced a “savage” system he said drives people to leave their homes for a better life and turns a blind eye when they die in the process.

Twitter co-founder may be worth $1B after IPO Michael Liedtke Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The personal fortune of Twitter co-founder Evan Williams probably will take up 10 characters once the online communications company goes public. Williams, who was Twitter’s CEO for two years until Dick Costolo took over in 2010, owns a 12 percent stake that makes him the company’s largest shareholder. If Twitter turns out to be worth at least $17.60 per share, the initial public offering will make Williams a billionaire at 41 years old. Williams, a Nebraska native who now lives in San Francisco, is likely to join the billion-dollar club

because an outside appraisal of Twitter completed in August valued the company at $20.62 per share, according to IPO documents unsealed Thursday. At that price, Williams’ 56.9 million shares would be worth nearly $1.2 billion. San Francisco-based Twitter Inc. hopes to raise $1 billion an offer that’s expected to be completed by Thanksgiving. Williams owns such a large stake because Twitter was hatched within another startup called Odeo that he launched in 2005 after leaving a job at Google Inc. He had gone to work for Google after selling his first hit product, Blogger, to Google for an undisclosed amount in 2003.

Shutdown From page 1 develop iron deficiency anemia. “These mothers have trust and confidence in this program, and that trust and confidence has been shaken by Congress,” Greenaway said. “This is just unconscionable.” Danyelle Brents, 22, a single mother of three, receives about $200 a month in vouchers for food and formula for her two children and baby. She is being hit doubly hard by the shutdown: She is a contract worker for the Federal Aviation Administration who catalogs records for aircraft certification, and is furloughed. Now, with her baby going through 10 cans of formula a month, she might lose key help with her grocery bill. “That’s a lot of money, $15 a can,” she said. “Now that I’m out of work, WIC is how I support my family. … I’m scared at this point to go buy anything

extra.” Groups that fight hunger say they are also concerned about the confusion that needy mothers may be feeling. Though most WIC offices are open, many mothers mistakenly assumed that benefits were cut off. Advocates are also worried that there will be a cumulative effect as other, smaller government feeding programs run out of money. Adding to the uncertainty: While USDA has said that food stamps are guaranteed to continue through October, it is unclear what will happen after that. In Pennsylvania, whose $208 million WIC program supports 250,000 women and children, all local WIC offices remain open and benefits are being dispensed as usual. The state Health Department said it has $25.5 million on hand to con-

tinue operating the program through October. Ohio said it has enough money to last through the second week of November. “Ohio WIC is open for business!” proclaimed the headline on a state website. Utah’s WIC program, though, immediately closed its doors Tuesday in the wake of the government shutdown, meaning that families who hadn’t already received their October vouchers were out of luck and new applications couldn’t be processed. The state got $2.5 million in USDA funding on Thursday, and WIC offices throughout the state planned to reopen by noon Friday. Charitable groups were already filling the void. A Facebook group called “The People’s WIC — Utah” was launched hours after WIC offices closed, matching up

families in need with those able to donate formula and other food. In Layton, about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City, a donation drive was planned for Saturday, with organizers asking for fresh fruits and vegetables, unopened baby formula and other necessities. Food banks, meanwhile, are bracing for a surge in requests for help if WIC runs out of money. Linda Zimmerman, executive director of Neighbors In Need, which runs 11 food banks in Massachusetts, said her organization already provides a lot of baby formula to its clients, most of whom get WIC aid as well. “I think they’re truly nervous,” Zimmerman said. “We’re going to have to be doing a lot of work to make sure we can keep up with need for infant formula.”

President’s son to speak in Troy Steve Ford’s topic to be ‘Facing Breast Cancer’ TROY — Steve Ford, actor and son of President Gerald Ford and First Lady Betty Ford, will be the featured speaker at the annual Bill and Ruth McGraw Cancer Awareness Symposium on Oct. 24 at the Crystal Room in Troy. The program is free and will begin with registration at 5:30 p.m. and the speaker at 6 p.m. Preregistration before noon Oct. 22 is required by calling 937440-7541, with seating limited to the first 300 callers. Ford will speak on the topic, “Facing Breast Cancer: The ‘First Family’ Speaks Out.” Ford was a teenager when his father became president following the resignation of Richard Nixon in 1974. He left Washington at age 18 to head West to pursue a dream of becoming a cowboy on cattle ranches. He had 10 secret service agents in tow as he hit the ranch before embarking on an acting career. Ford has appeared in more than 30 movies, had guest roles on numerous TV shows and acted for six years on the daytime drama, “The Young and the Restless.” As a motivational speaker, Ford has talked with students across

the country, urging them to empower themselves against harmful influences. He shares with students habits he formed during his school days that led to alcohol addiction and shares tools and strategies that helped him to get his life back on track. His mother, Betty Ford, was known for raising breast cancer awareness with public discussion following a mastectomy and raising addiction awareness in disclosing her personal battle with alcoholism. Her candor in the early 1970s regarding her battle with breast cancer was instrumental in removing the stigma associated with the disease. The symposium is sponsored by the UVMC Foundation and the UVMC Cancer Care Center. It is made possible by a grant from the McGraw Family Fund of the Troy Foundation and a grant from the UVMC Foundation. The symposium was named in honor of Troy residents Bill and Ruth McGraw, parents of Bill McGraw, Karen McGraw and Chris Grilliot. Between them, Bill and Ruth McGraw had cancer five times, but neither died from the disease.

Fair board members meet to talk benches The Shelby County Agricultural Society discussed the need for new benches during its Sept. 18 meeting. More than 200 benches at the fairgrounds are more than 2o years old, President Tim Everett said, and they are rotting at their bases. He said the society must decide by the November meeting how many new benches can be afforded. The benches are used for many events at the fairgrounds and for the Applefest on the square. In other business, the board voted not to permit a return to the fair of cane rack games.

Everett reported that solicitations of donations to support the bathroom project at the fairgrounds have been sent. It was announced that the Junior Fair annual meeting will be at the fairgrounds Dec. 28 and that a representative of the county veterans association should be invited to the October meeting to discuss the association’s plan to have a program at the fairgrounds. Leroy Roby, owner and promotion manager of the Rebel Run Rod and Custom Car Show thanked the board for the opportunity to stage the show at the fairgrounds.

Eight-year-old Campbell, of Camden, releases sparkly glitter with one hand and holds up a sign welcoming back her uncle, Brandon Mann, with the other hand at the homecoming ceremony on Friday.

Home From page 1 operates a detachment from the Piqua National Guard Armory, was responsible for planning, synchronizing and executing tactical supply, sustainment and transportation operations throughout the southern region of Afghanistan. The transportation company was stationed at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan for a large part of their deployment. Upon their deployment, the soldiers of the 1487th replaced the duties of the 1486th Transportation Company, which is out of Mansfield, who performed similar mission objectives in the previous year in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The crowd roared as the soldiers, oneby-one, walked into the gymnasium as the ceremony began. Transportation Company Commander Stephen Sturgill spoke to the audience before dismissing the soldiers and said the 1487 was “the best transportation company that was in theater” and said how proud he was of each one of them. “Your mission had ended and guess what?” Sturgill said in his parting words.

“It’s time to go home.” Also speaking at the ceremony was Brig. Gen. John C. Harris, Ohio assistant adjutant general, who said he especially enjoys small town homecoming ceremonies and said the men and women in the company performed their mission well. “Your sacrifice has helped change the course of history,” Harris said. “It’s great volunteers like you that have helped shape this country.” The event was also heavily attended by local and regional dignitaries, including Piqua’s mayor, Lucy Fess, who thanked the company for their service. “Unlike your officials in Washington, you know how to do your job,” she said, eliciting applause and laughter from the packed gymnasium. Once the ceremony ended, the soldiers were finally reunited with their wives and children, many of them with tears rolling down their faces. The 1487th Transportation Company’s past service includes deploying in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004 and 2005 and Operation Desert Storm in 1990 and 1991.

One bad week clinches Dusty’s fate

CINCINNATI (AP) — One very bad week clinched Dusty Baker’s fate. The Reds decided they weren’t going to bring him back. Not after they ended the season with six losses in a row, including the wildcard playoff game. Not after they failed to get past the opening round of the playoffs for the third time in a row. Not with all the booing at Great American Ball Park. Instead of keeping Baker around for one more try, the Reds fired him on Friday, parting ways with the manager who led them to their best stretch of success since the Big Red Machine but couldn’t get them deep into the postseason. “Maybe the time is long enough because I was starting to get quite a few jeers and some hate mail and stuff,” Baker said during a conference call. “So maybe it was time for me to move on.” The move came after the Reds lost the wild-card playoff in Pittsburgh 6-2 on Tuesday night, their sixth straight loss. The final-week fade was a major factor in the decision, general manager Walt Jocketty said in a phone interview. “Just the way we played lately was a factor,” Jocketty said. “But I think the way the season ended was kind of the final decision. “The last six games certainly played a

big part in this,” he added. The Reds are the fourth team with an opening at manager. Davey Johnson retired after the Nationals’ season, Eric Wedge left the Mariners and the Cubs fired Dale Sveum after finishing last in the NL Central. Baker took over a rebuilding team in 2008 and led it to three 90-win seasons and three playoff appearances in the last four years, their best run since Sparky Anderson managed the Big Red Machine to two World Series titles in the 1970s. The lack of playoff success built pressure for change. “Although he’s the one that ran the club every day, there are a lot of areas we can look at that could be to blame here, including the front office, the players, the coaching staff,” Jocketty said. “It’s not only just Dusty. “We felt it was important going forward to provide new leadership, a new voice, whatever you want to call it,” he said. Though stunned by the late fade — Baker said he felt “very helpless” as the offense went into a slump and the rotation fell apart — he expected to return for the final year on his contract. “Maybe it’s something I said, maybe something I didn’t say along the way,” Baker said. “I know I had a conversation

with Walt that they were going to look to replace (hitting coach) Brook Jacoby, and I was like, ‘Oh, no, Brook’s not doing anything as one of my coaches that deserved that.’ It wasn’t an ultimatum, but I just said, ‘Hey, man, if we get rid of Brook, you might as well get rid

of me, too.’ “The next thing I was called up to the office,” Baker continued. “I thought I was going to discuss Brook’s future and the rest of the coaches’ future, and I was told my services were no longer needed.” Baker went 509-463 in his six seasons with Cincinnati, finishing third on the Reds’ list for wins by a manager behind Anderson (863) and Bill McKechnie (744). His 1,671 wins rank 16th on the career list. He won three NL Manager of the Year awards. The Reds plan to compile a list of managerial candidates next week. Jocketty said pitching coach Bryan Price and Jim Riggleman, who managed at Triple-A Louisville, would be among the in-house candidates considered. The coaching staff will be retained until the next manager is chosen. Jocketty teamed with Tony La Russa to win championships in St. Louis. La Russa retired after the Cardinals won the World Series in 2011. “I don’t think he even wants to manage anymore,” Jocketty said. “I don’t think that will be a factor.” Asked whether he had any interest in returning to manage, La Russa said by phone, “No. The last time I saw Walt, he said he’d had more than enough of me.”

Yellow Jackets roll over Trojans 42-28 Sidney rolled up nearly 300 yards in total offense in scoring four times in the first half, and went on to rout the Troy Trojans, 42-28, in Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division football Friday night at Sidney Memorial Stadium. The win, which snapped a threegame losing streak to Troy, put the Jackets at 1-0 in the North and 4-2 overall heading into their annual rivalry match with the Piqua Indians Friday at Piqua. Sidney dominated early, on the strength of an amazing effort by Darryl McNeal, who caught four touchdown passes in the first half alone. “Darryl has a chance to be a bigplay guy,” said Sidney coach Adam Doenges. “We have to get him out of playing like a sophomore. “That was the most complete game we’ve played in four years,” he continued. “They’re a pretty base defense, and they’ve been pretty sound doing that. But we had a game plan and we adjusted on the fly. (Assistant coach) Greg Snyder had a great game plan offensively and Wes Branscum defensively. I give all the credit in the world to those guys.” Sidney took a 14-0 lead on the first play of the second quarter following a good return of a short punt by McNeal to the Troy one. Fox flipped to McNeal on the first play after that for the touchdown. Sidney’s defense then turned the Trojans away on a fourth-and-goal

from the nine, picking off a pass. But two plays later, Troy returned the favor, and the interception was taken back to the one. Miles Hibler took it in on the next play to make it 14-7 and it looked like the momentum had really swung Troy’s way when they sacked Fox for a 10-yard loss on the first play of the ensuing possession. But on the next play from the 16, Fox hit McNeal over the middle and he took it 84 yards to the endzone to stun the Trojans and up the lead to 21-7. However, the Jackets gave up a big run to Hibler, and a 15-yard facemask penalty put the ball inside the 30. A few plays later, Hibler took it in from five yards out to bring the Trojans within a touchdown. However, the Jackets would get another shot at the endzone after another short Troy punt, and it would culminate with the fourth touchdown of the night by McNeal. Fox went five yards on fourth-andthree at the 10, then carried into the endzone on the next play. But McNeal was called for a motion penalty, backing the ball up to the 10. However, Fox lofted a pass to McNeal on the very next play for a 28-14 lead with just :42 left in the first half. Fox was 7-for-16 for 165 yards and four touchdowns in the first half. Troy’s Matt Barr was 8-for-18 for 107 yards. Sidney held Troy to 84 yards rushing the first half on 24 attempts. Troy tried an onside kick to start the

third quarter and Sidney recovered, and after a five-yard penalty on first down, it took the Jackets just three plays to score again, the big play being a 28-yard run by Eric Barnes to the Troy 25. Two plays later, Barnes went in from the one. The two teams each scored touchdowns in the first three minutes of the third quarter. But the Jackets got a 40-yard touchdown run from Barnes on its next possession to make it 42-20. The Trojans didn’t score again until just three minutes remained in the contest.

Redskins breeze to 56-6 win RIDGEWAY — As expected, the Fort Loramie Redskins had no trouble with Ridgemont Friday in Northwest Central Conference football action, beating the Gophers 56-6. The win put Loramie at 5-1 on the year and 2-0 in the NWCC, and set the stage for the big showdown Friday at home against Lehman, which is also 5-1. “Our kids played well,” said Loramie coach Matt Burgbacher. “We went in with a purpose and the kids did well. They did what we asked them to do.” Delaunte Thornton scored four touchdowns that accounted for around 130 yards alone. They came from 24, 55, 4 and 53 yards out. Quarterback Andy Grewe threw two touchdown passes and ran for another, and Craig Fullenkamp returned the second-half kickoff 75 yards for a score. Grewe’s TD passes were to Troy Benanzer from

22 yards out, and Trey Rittenhouse for the 18.

Minster outduels Anna 41-34 MINSTER — For the second week in a row, the Anna Rockets lost in the closing seconds, this time in a shootout with the Minster Wildcats in Midwest Athletic Conference football play, 41-34. The Rockets took the lead with 5:11 remaining in the game on a 23-yard pass from Josh Robinson to Nick Ihle, and appeared to be in command when Minster took over on its final possession with under two minutes to go and a long way from the endzone. But quarterback Josh Nixon hit his favorite target, Eli Wolf, and it turned into an 85-yard scoring strike with just 1:46 remaining. Wolf then ran in for the two-point conversion for a 41-34 lead, which barely held up — Minster intercepted a pass in the endzone to finally nail down the win. The loss spoiled a spectacular night for Anna quarterback Josh Robinson, who was 26-for-36 for 271 yards and three touchdowns. Ihle caught nine balls for 129 yards. Nixon was equally impressive for the Wildcats, connecting on 20 of 36 passes for 366 yards. Wolf caught 10 passes for 249 yards. After a 7-7 tie to end the opening period, Anna scored twice in the second quarter for a 21-13 lead at the half. But the Wildcats scored twice in the third quarter, then scored the first touchdown

of the final period to open up a 33-21 lead. The Rockets came back on Robinson’s 55-yard run, and 23-yard pass to Ihle, but Minster responded at the end. Minster managed just 57 yards rushing. Anna had 179, with Matthew Bruce picking up 85 on 17 carries. Anna is at Coldwater Friday and Minster hosts Parkway.

PIQUA — Lehman trailed 8-7 after one quarter, but scored three times in the second period for a 20-point halftime lead, and went on to blast Dayton Jefferson in non-league high school football action Friday night at Piqua, 42-14. The win puts the Cavaliers at 5-1 on the year after their fifth win in a row, and it sets up a big showdown Friday night at Fort Loramie against the 5-1 Redskins. The winner will likely cruise to the Northwest Central Conference championship. “We didn’t play real well,” said Lehman head coach Dick Roll. “We’re still a little sluggish offensively. But Dayton Jefferson is a much improved team this season.” Gre g Sp earma n broke a 35-yard run for a touchdown to open the scoring, but Jefferson answered

CLEVELAND (AP) — Brian Hoyer’s story, seemingly pulled from a Disney movie script, took a cruel turn. The Cleveland quarterback’s season is over. A lifelong Browns fan living out his boyhood dream by starting for his hometown team, Hoyer tore a knee ligament while running for a first down Thursday night against Buffalo and will miss the remainder of this season. It’s a devastating blow for Hoyer, who had waited five years — three as Tom Brady’s backup in New England — to become an NFL starter and led the Browns to wins over Minnesota and Cincinnati while replacing an injured Brandon Weeden. “This is disappointing,” Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Friday on a conference call. “It’s an unfortunate thing.” Chudzinski said an MRI taken Friday showed Hoyer tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He will undergo surgery, ending his feel-good story after just three starts and with the Browns (3-2) rolling. Chudzinski said there is no other damage in Hoyer’s knee, which got caught in the turf at FirstEnergy as he slid and was hit by Bills rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso. The usual recovery time is nine months to one year, but for Hoyer the injury stole a chance to prove to Cleveland’s front office he could be their franchise quarterback. Chudzinski said he spoke with Hoyer after getting the medical results. “It’s hard on him,” said Chudzinski. “Obviously he’s disappointed, but if you know him and you know how positive he is and the type of person he is. He’s already thinking about when he’s going to be back. I reassured him that as well. I wanted to let him know how much he meant to us and what he did. But he’ll be back. He’ll make it back. He’s that type of guy. “He’s the kind of guy you don’t doubt.” Chudzinski said there are no immediate plans to sign another quarterback

and Weeden will return as Cleveland’s starter. Signed by Cleveland as a free agent in May, Hoyer, released by New England, Pittsburgh and Arizona in the past year, began the season as Cleveland’s No. 3 quarterback. With Weeden out recovering from a sprained thumb, Hoyer made just his second NFL start in Week 3 and led the Browns to consecutive wins, directing clutch fourth-quarter drives and throwing clinching touchdown passes in both games. “He did a great job and he was a big reason why we won those games, but not the only reason,” Chudzinski said, professing the “next-man up” mantra all NFL coaches maintain because of injuries. With the Browns trailing 7-0, Hoyer, flushed from the pocket, took off up field. He had just passed the first-down marker and was sliding when he took a blow near the helmet from Alonso in front of Cleveland’s sideline. Several Browns coaches and players screamed for a penalty as Hoyer lay face down in the grass. Chudzinski wouldn’t say if he thought Alonso should have been given a personal foul. “If it was close,” he said, “I don’t think there was any intention there.” With Hoyer out, Weeden, who returned from injury only to be demoted to a backup role, has his starting job back. Weeden replaced Hoyer against the Bills, and following a slow start — some Browns fans booed his first few incompletions— he rallied Cleveland to its third straight win. Weeden threw a 37-yard TD pass to wide receiver Josh Gordon in the third quarter and finished 13 of 24 for 197 yards. “The guys rallied around him,” Chudzinski said. “It was a gutsy performance, and it wasn’t always pretty. I think he was still a little bit rusty, but he got the job done and he was able to help us win that game. There were some ups and downs, but he was resilient and was able to make some big plays.”

Kasich touts training program Piqua

Sharon Semanie

For the Daily Call

PIQUA — Madan Baral, a senior project engineer at Hartzell Air Movement, has the ability to create three-dimensional models of large fans without a blueprint thanks to computer training he and his department colleagues received this year as part of the Ohio Incumbent Workforce Training Voucher Program launched in January. Baral was among several speakers who shared the podium with Governor John R. Kasich on Monday afternoon in the 50,000-square-foot high bay area at Hartzell. The purpose of the get-together was to laud the success of the training voucher program, which enables businesses to upgrade the skills of their existing workforce. Hartzell Air Movement is one of more than 450 companies — including four in Miami County — that collectively applied for $20 million in training vouchers during the program’s first round. Other county employers who benefited include the Clopay Building Products Co. Inc.; Hartzell Industries Inc.; Industry Products Inc. and P&R Specialty Inc. Addressing nearly three dozen local businessmen, educators, city officials and State Representative Richard Adams and Senator Bill Beagle, Kasich celebrated the launch of the sec-

Gov. John R. Kasich speaks to guests at Hartzell Air Movement Corporation in Piqua on Monday, regarding the launch of a second round of funds for the Incumbent Workforce Training Voucher Program.

ond round of Ohio’s “highly successful” voucher program and indicated $30 million in training vouchers became available to businesses and workers on Monday. “Within 15 minutes this morning,” quipped Kasich, “applications were already received for $25 of the $30 million…it’s like buying Rolling Stones tickets.” Kasich indicated more financial resources will be needed to accommodate the myriad requests adding the voucher program has been “a smashing success.” Federal assistance, noted Kasich’s team, is available for training “but largely only after people have first lost their jobs.” The Ohio Incumbent Workforce Training Voucher Program helps

Ohioans who have jobs upgrades their skills so they can maintain their jobs and employers can become more competitive in the global market. “Ohio’s economy is coming back, companies are growing again and our workforce is getting stronger,” suggested Kasich, a former congressman. “We need to keep pushing ahead to ensure that our job creators have the resources they need to be competitive in a global economy and that starts with skilled employees. These vouchers help get Ohio workers the training they need so their companies and our entire state economy can continue to grow.” Hartzell Air Movement, explained Human Resources

Manager Julie Buschur, provided 28 employees with 23 different training areas during the first round of the voucher program in areas such as engineering, drafting and production, foundry, ventilation and Six Sigma for improved process efficiency. The voucher program provides a reimbursement to businesses to help with training costs. Hartzell, for example was reimbursed for up to 50 percent of the $75,000 price tag or $37,500 from the voucher funding. The family-owned business has been manufacturing industrial fans for 86 years spanning five generations. Many of the Hartzell employees, she added, received advanced training at Edison Community College, the University of Dayton and 3D Vision in Cincinnati while others benefited from in-house training. An application for the second round of vouchers, said Buschur, has already been submitted requesting $104,000 to assist 30 more employees of the 156-member Hartzell work force. Joining Kasich for Monday’s event was Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) Director David Goodman, Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation Tracy Intihar, and the leadership team and employees of Hartzell Air Movement. “We are not only building stronger employees, we’re build-

ing a stronger workforce,” suggested Goodman. “This program is exactly what companies needed to take their expertise to the next level and remain competitive.” The Incumbent Workforce Training Voucher Program, administered by ODSA, is part of the Kasich administration’s overall workforce development reform effort and provides direct financial assistance to both Ohio workers looking to improve their skills and employers looking to enhance the skills of their workforce. Targeted industries include advanced manufacturing, aerospace and aviation, automotive, biohealth, corporate headquarters, energy, financial services, food processing, information technology and services and polymers and chemicals. It is operated as a reimbursable program, and is available to Ohio companies that have been in operation for at least 12 months and Ohio employees with the permission of their employer. ODSA reimburses the employer for up to 50 percent of the eligible training costs up to $4,000 per employee, after the employer pays the full cost of the training, and secondly, the employee successfully completes the training. The maximum amount an employer may qualify for in a fiscal year is $250,000. Applications for round two are now available by visiting the website at http://development.

COLUMBUS — The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) and Ohio Development Services Agency are partnering to increase awareness of energy efficiency during Energy Awareness month. Throughout October, the agencies will provide tips on reducing energy costs as well as information on energy assistance programs. “Conservation and efficiency are key components as we strive to control costs on our heating and cooling bills,” PUCO Chairman Todd A. Snitchler stated. “Energy Awareness Month serves as a perfect reminder of how applying these principles into our daily lives, consumers can develop habits to reduce their usage and save money on their utility bills.” During October, Ohioans are encouraged to review how they use energy in their homes and offices. Installing programmable thermostats and washing only full loads of dishes and clothes are

just a few ways to increase your energy efficiency. Ohioans needing assistance in managing their energy costs can visit to learn more about programs that are available. “Saving energy is as simple as turning off the lights when you leave a room,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency. The Ohio Development Services Agency has programs to help Ohio businesses and communities implement energy efficiency measures. By lowering energy usage, businesses and communities can save money. Program information can be found at http://www. More information on energy conservation also can be found on the PUCO website, http://www.puco.ohio. gov/puco/index.cfm/consumer-information/consumer-topics/energy-and-waterconservation-tips/.

Your Horoscope Francis Drake

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Oct. 7, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Because you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others today, this is a good day to ask for favors. It’s also a good day to ask for a loan or a mortgage. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’ll enjoy schmoozing with others, because there’s an easy give-and-take to things today. People feel generous and friendly to each other. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You can accomplish more work today by joining forces with others. People are willing to help, and you feel the same way. Work-related travel is likely. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your optimism will attract invitations today. Enthusiasm is contagious, and because you’re up for fun, you will enjoy parties, the arts, sports and playful times with children. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good day to explore real-estate deals. You also can improve family relationships or buy something you like for your home. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Because this is a feel-good day, you’ll enjoy chatting to others. All your communication will be positive, which is why it’s a strong day for writers, teachers, editors, actors and salespeople. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Business and commerce are blessed today. You can explore a better job or ways to make more money. However, you’re also keen


to spend big! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good day for business and a great day for socializing. You feel positive and friendly about everything, which is why others want to talk to you and be in your presence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Solitude in beautiful surroundings will please you today. You find it easy to feel contented with yourself and with the world around you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Accept all invitations to work with others today, because group activities will benefit you as well as others. Rally your troops and set them marching! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) People in authority are impressed with your enthusiasm today. Therefore, this is a good time to press for what you want. Ask for approval or permission, because you will likely get it. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Travel will delight you today because you’re eager to expand your horizons. You want to learn more and discover adventure! You might strike up a new friendship with someone from a different background. YOU BORN TODAY You are strongly committed to whatever you believe, and even if others oppose you, this will not dissuade you. In part, this is because you are a rebellious, independent thinker. You don’t mince words; you fight for what you believe is right, especially your ideals. This year, a change might take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: Simon Cowell, TV personality; Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate; Joy Behar, TV host.
