Recent press reports following the release last month of a study concerning expenditures by Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s County Veterans Service Commissions have been one-sided. So said Ed Ball, director of the Shelby County Veterans S ervice Commission this week. Reports in the Dayton Daily News and other Ohio newspapers called into question the varying percentages of available funds that were actually awarded to veterans who sought emergency aid from their county veterans commissions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find the articles somewhat one-sided,

in that financial assistance through County Veteran Service Offices are for temporary assistance only,â&#x20AC;? Ball said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;meaning that Veterans Service Commissions will do whatever it takes, in their respective counties, to help the veterans, widows and orphans to get back on their feet â&#x20AC;Ś and meet the unpredictable needs of their veteran populations.â&#x20AC;? The basis of the debate are statistics that show that some Ohio counties annually award all the funds that have been appropriated to them for temporary financial assistance and others do not. When funds appropriated for temporary financial

assistance are not used, they are returned to the general fund of the appropriating county. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what happened in Shelby County in 2o12. The office was appropriated $192,338 and awarded $156,154. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If our board returns money at the end of the year, I can assure you all our resident veterans are being taken care of and we are blessed with the fact we did not run out of funds,â&#x20AC;? Ball said. He noted that projecting in advance what will be needed when budgets are created at the beginning of a fiscal year is never an exact science. Lynne Skaggs, director of the Auglaize County Veterans Service Commission, concurs.

In 2012, she needed ask her county commission for permission to move funds from other line items to meet the requests for emergency aid submitted by Auglaize County veterans. Her original budget request and appropriation was not enough: temporary financial assistance grew from the original appropriation of $95,000 to $96,376. No other programs were shorted by moving the funds, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to budget too tightly,â&#x20AC;? she added. There were funds allocated for other projects that were not needed for those projects. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what got moved to cover requests for temporary assistance.

According to the Ohio Revised Code, Veterans Service Commissions may provide financial assistance to any qualified veteran, widow or widower, dependant parent, child or ward of a veteran who meets established criteria. Staff may authorize 12 food orders in any 12-month period and up to $1,500 in additional assistance per year to cover needs including rent, mortgage payments, utility bills, medical bills, vehicle repair and clothing needed for employment. Applicants must complete written applications and demonstrate need. They must agree See VETERANS | 17

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration, scrambling to tamp down a controversy over suspended death benefits for the families of fallen troops, announced Wednesday that a charity would pick up the costs of the payments during the government shutdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fisher House Foundation will provide the families of the fallen with the benefits they so richly deserve,â&#x20AC;? Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in a statement, adding that the Pentagon would reimburse the foundation after the shutdown ended. Hagel said Fisher House, which works with veterans and their families, had approached the Pentagon about making the payments. The Defense Department typically pays families about $100,000 within three days of a service memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, but officials say the shutdown was preventing 0those benefits from being paid. A senior defense official said the government could not actively solicit funds from private organizations but could accept an offer. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss the offer by name and insisted on anonymity. The failure to make the payments has stirred outrage on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Obama spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that the president was â&#x20AC;&#x153;disturbedâ&#x20AC;? when he found out the death benefits had been suspended and demanded an immediate solution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The commander in chief, when he found out that this was not addressed, he directed that a solution be found, and we expect one today,â&#x20AC;? Carney said before the Pentagon announced the agreement with Fisher House. The Republican-led House unanimously passed legislation on Wednesday to restore the death benefits. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear whether the Democratic-led Senate will take up the measure or whether Obama would sign it. Obama has threatened to veto other legislation passed by the House in recent days that would reopen individual funding streams, arguing that a piecemeal approach to ending the shutdown was unacceptable and that the entire government must be reopened. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Obama administration had yet to issue a formal veto threat for the death benefit bill. Before the government shutdown last

Goodyear blimp to retire to Florida AKRON (AP) — After years of flights out of northeast Ohio, the Spirit of Goodyear blimp is retiring in stereotypical fashion: It’s moving to Florida. Akron-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. plans for the blue blimp emblazoned with its gold logo to make farewell flights around the city Wednesday and Thursday. The aircraft’s light board will be programmed with special messages “as a nod to the folks of Akron,” blimp spokesman Doug Grassian told the Akron Beacon Journal. People were encouraged to share their blimp stories and photographs through Goodyear’s Facebook and Twitter pages for the blimp. “We love Akron. Akron loves the blimp,” Grassian said. “There’s a big connection there.” The blimp makes its final departure from the city on Friday, bound for several college football games — Penn StateMichigan this week in State College, Pa., then on to North Carolina next — on a roundabout path

to Florida. The blimp, which had been based at an airdock in Suffield Township, will be stationed at Goodyear’s dock in Pompano Beach, also home to the Spirit of Innovation blimp. The nearly 14-year-old airship will fly until it is decommissioned next year as the company launches a round of replacements for its three U.S. blimps over several years. Grassian said the Spirit of Goodyear, commissioned in March 2000 by NASA astronaut Sally Ride, has flown longer than most blimps of that design. Goodyear is building a new fleet of three internal-frame zeppelin airships to replace its three domestic blimps. The replacement for northeast Ohio is a Goodyear Zeppelin NT now under construction in the Wingfoot Lake airdock where the Spirit of Goodyear has been based. For now, the craft is unnamed; the NT simply stands for new technology. Its first flight is expected in March, the newspaper said.

Ex-cop killed after firing at courthouse John Raby and Kevin Begos Associated Press

WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — A retired police officer armed with an assault weapon and a handgun fired up to two dozen shots at a U.S. courthouse in West Virginia on Wednesday before police returned fire and killed him, police said. Wheeling Police Chief Shawn Schwertfeger identified the gunman Thomas J. Piccard, 55, of Bridgeport, Ohio. He was a retired Wheeling police officer. Schwertfeger did not say whether Piccard used both weapons during the assault on the Wheeling Federal Building or speculate on a motive. Three on-duty security officers were injured by flying debris during the onslaught, he told a news conference. Mayor Andy McKenzie said police who briefed him earlier Wednesday told him Piccard was a 20-year-plus veteran of the force who retired 13 years ago. Investigators were seeking a search warrant for Piccard’s

home in hopes of determining a motive and if he acted alone, said Chief Deputy Mike Claxton of the Marshals Service in northern West Virginia. Asked if the gunman had any beef with the U.S. government, Claxton said, “We’re really digging hard at this point to find out.” Claxton said a man later identified as Piccard began firing from a parking lot across from the federal building. “He was observed in the parking lot very quickly after the first shots were fired,” he said. The building houses a variety of courtrooms and related offices, including judges, prosecutors and law enforcement. Officials said it was too early to tell whether Piccard was targeting anyone in the building or what his motive may have been. “That’s still trying to be determined,” said Bob Johnson, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Pittsburgh office. People inside the building ducked under desks as the shots struck the building and shat-

tered windows. Carla Webb Daniels told media outlets she was in her attorney’s office nearby when she heard loud gunshots. She saw the gunman fire from a bank parking lot across the street. “I was so nervous, I couldn’t believe it,” Daniels said. “People were scared and were banging on the doors asking to be let in.” The three-story gray federal building remained cordoned off Wednesday night, surrounded by a heavy police presence in the city along the Ohio River in West Virginia’s northern panhandle about 60 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. Most people were going about their evenings, eating at local restaurants in the small city of about 28,000 with an older downtown with stone buildings, banks and coffee shops David Wohlfeil, the owner of the Metropolitan City Grill near the courthouse, said he ran outside after he heard the first round of shots. He heard two more volleys of gunfire then ran back inside.

Jupiter-bound craft runs into problem after flyby Alicia Chang AP Science Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NASA’s Jupiterbound spacecraft hit a snag Wednesday soon after it used Earth as a gravity slingshot to hurtle toward the outer solar system, but mission managers said it’s on course to arrive at the giant planet in 2016. Juno emerged from Earth’s shadow in safe mode, a state that spacecraft are programmed to go into when there’s some trouble. Despite the problem, “we believe we are on track as planned to Jupiter,” said project manager Rick Nybakken of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the $1.1 billion mission. Engineers continued to diagnose the issue,

which occurred after Juno whipped around Earth in a momentumgathering flyby. Up until Wednesday, Juno had been in excellent health. While in safe mode, it can communicate with ground controllers, but its activities are limited. Previous missions to the outer solar system have used Earth as a celestial springboard since there’s no rocket powerful enough to make a direct flight. The Galileo spacecraft buzzed by Earth twice in the 1990s en route to Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet located 484 million miles from the sun. Launched in 2011, Juno flew beyond the orbit of Mars, Earth’s closest planetary neighbor, before looping back toward our home

planet for a quick visit. Wednesday’s rendezvous boosted Juno’s speed from 78,000 mph relative to the sun to 87,000 mph — enough momentum to cruise past the asteroid belt to Jupiter, where it should arrive in 2016. During the swing past Earth, Juno snapped pictures. The solar-powered, windmill-shaped spacecraft slipped into Earth’s shadow as planned, but engineers were puzzled by the too little data it sent back afterward. At closest approach, it hurtled 350 miles above the ocean off the coast of South Africa. NASA said skywatchers with binoculars or a small telescope might have seen it streak across the sky, weather permitting. Ham radio

operators around the globe were encouraged to say “Hi” in Morse code — a message that might be detected by Juno’s radio. By space mission standards, Juno’s Earth rendezvous was lowkey compared with the Curiosity rover’s nail-biting landing on Mars last year, which drew crowds. Since flybys have been executed before, project managers predicted a smooth flight. The unexpected problem causes “a moderate level of concern,” Nybakken said. Despite a government shutdown that has prevented NASA from updating its website or tweeting, the space agency’s missions continue to operate. Earlier this week, NASA’s new-

est spacecraft, LADEE, slipped into orbit around the moon. Since the 1970s, spacecraft have circled or flown past Jupiter including the Voyagers, Pioneers, Galileo, Ulysses, Cassini and, most recently, the New Horizons barreling toward Pluto. Missions have beamed back stunning views of Jupiter’s trademark Great Red Spot, a raging hurricane-like storm, and its many moons. Juno promises to inch closer to Jupiter than previous spacecraft, orbiting the planet for at least a year and studying its cloud-covered atmosphere and mysterious interior to better understand how the giant planet formed. ——— Follow Alicia Chang at http://twitter. com/SciWriAlicia

ACLU sues over abortion provisions in budget

Trial witness: Suspect showed off VIP ties Thomas J. Sheeran Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man charged in a suspected $100 million Navy charity fraud showed off his political connections through souvenir mugs featuring photos of himself with former President George W. Bush, a witness testified Wednesday. The defendant identifies himself as Bobby Thompson. Authorities, however, say he is a 67-year-old Harvardtrained attorney and former military intelligence officer named John Donald Cody, who used his connections to encourage donations to the charity. Gary Steen of Tampa, Fla., testified about dental work he did for Thompson. According to Steen, Thompson expressed his appreciation for the work by giving him three coffee mugs showing him with a smiling Bush. “I was impressed that he was in contact with Bush,” the witness said, underscoring the prosecution’s contention. The defense says Thompson’s connections show the legitimacy of the charity, the United States Navy Veterans Association of Tampa. In an attempt by the defense to show that Thompson’s relationships were authentic, Steen was shown a poster-size photo similar to the one on the coffee mugs. He said he wasn’t

sure where it was taken, but it was apparently in a formal setting. Thompson showered politicians, often Republicans, with donations. Last week, the judge rejected a renewed defense request to subpoena testimony from leading Ohio Republicans including U.S. House Speaker John Boehner. Thompson was indicted in 2010 and disappeared for almost two years. He was arrested last year in Portland, Ore., where agents and deputy marshals found him with fake IDs and a suitcase containing $980,000 in cash. The former legal adviser to the charity, Helen Mac Murray, testified Tuesday in detail about how Thompson repeatedly rejected her attempts to meet board members and top executives of the charity, arguing it was unnecessary. “He did not feel the association had an obligation” to disclose its top leadership, Mac Murray told jurors. Simultaneously, Mac Murray said Thompson pretended to be emailing association leaders and sent her copies. She said that happened several dozen times. On cross-examination, defense attorney Joseph Patituce’s line of questioning raised a possible reason for the multiple ID cards under different names — a secret government program.

the appropriation of funds for existing government programs or obligations.” Single-subject rules exist to avoid complexity in legislation, to prevent unintended consequences and to keep lawmakers from tucking items into bills without the knowledge of the public or at times legislative colleagues. But the president of Ohio Right to Life says the singlesubject rule isn’t really motivating the legal action. “It has nothing to do with the Ohio Constitution,” the president, Mike Gonidakis, said in a statement. “This is nothing more than a pro-abortion legal stunt by the ACLU which ultimately will cost Ohio taxpayers significantly.” Ohio Democrats and other

abortion rights advocates repeatedly have sought to call out Republicans who lead both legislative chambers for slipping the abortion provisions into the budget at the last minute. Many of the provisions — including the effective defunding of Planned Parenthood, which is not cited in the lawsuit — were contained in bills pending at the time. Last week, a rally opposing the provisions drew at least several hundred protesters to the Statehouse, including the national presidents of the National Organization for Women and the Feminist Majority Foundation. Gonidakis said the wish of advocates is “abortion-ondemand,” a phrase whose use is growing among abortion foes

in Ohio as the fight over the budget amendments intensifies. “This lawsuit contradicts itself,” he said. “On the one hand, the ACLU claims the budget ‘should be’ for appropriating funds and, on the other hand, they claim that they do not like how the funds are appropriated.” Jessie Hill, an ACLU cooperating attorney who teaches at Case Western Reserve University, said arguments laid out in the suit are strengthened by the fact that many abortionrelated budget provisions were included at one time in separate bills. She said the suit will not immediately affect enforcement of the provisions.

Ohio won’t ask drivers if they want off organ list COLUMBUS (AP) — Drivers renewing their licenses in Ohio will no longer be asked if they want to remain on the list of organ donors in a move designed to increase the state’s donation registry. Donors still can take themselves off the list by requesting a change when they renew their licenses or by visiting the Bureau of Motor Vehicles’ website. The change comes after a state lawmaker added an amendment to the state budget signed by Republican Gov. John Kasich. Rep. Cheryl Grossman, a Republican from Grove City, said the goal was to cut time at the BMV counter and add to the donor registry. About 5.24 million Ohioans are registered organ donors, up

from 5.19 million last year. Ohio joins nine other states that don’t ask registered donors about continuing. Lifeline of Ohio, which maintains Ohio’s organ donor registry, pushed for the policy switch because it wanted people to gather more information first, said Marilyn Pongonis, a spokeswoman for the organization. Older donors have dropped off the list because they wrongly believed medical conditions or illnesses would disqualify them from donating, she said. “Our real hope is that people won’t pull themselves out without making an informed decision,” she told The Columbus Dispatch. Over the last year, 233,103 names were added to the registry

and 69,302 were removed, she said. Across the nation, about 120,000 people are waiting for organ transplants, said Pongonis, who added that state registries must increase to meet the demand for organs. Close to 59 percent of Ohio adults are registered donors. Only California has more names on its registry, but the proportion of registered donors is higher in 17 states, according to a report from Donate Life America. Last year, 297 Ohioans donated their organs. “People are always shocked by that number, that there’s such a small number of people who go on to be organ donors,” Pongonis said.

4 sailors arraigned in Md. Navy diver deaths Brock Vergakis Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The Navy arraigned four sailors on Wednesday for dereliction of duty in connection with the training accident deaths of two divers in Maryland. Separate trials for each of the four sailors are set for January. If convicted, Chief Navy Diver Gary Ladd, Senior Chief Navy Diver James Burger and Senior Chief Navy Diver David Jones each face a maximum sentence of

three months confinement and a reduction in pay. Chief Warrant Officer Jason Bennett faces a maximum possible sentence of six months’ confinement and reduction in pay because he was charged with two counts of dereliction of duty. None of the sailors has entered a plea in the case, although Burger’s military attorneys issued a written statement declaring his innocence after his appearance at a Naval Station Norfolk courtroom. The four were arraigned after refusing to accept administrative punishment for their roles in connection with the deaths of Navy Diver 1st Class James Reyher and Navy Diver 2nd Class

Ryan Harris earlier this year. A fifth sailor, Chief Warrant Officer Mark Smith, accepted the “nonjudicial” punishment and was not arraigned on the criminal charge. Reyher and Harris drowned on Feb. 26 while working at the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Members of their Virginia Beachbased unit have said the men died after a line tethered to them became tangled with an unspecified object at the bottom of the Super Pond underwater weapons-testing facility. By the time they were pulled to the surface, the men were out of air and unresponsive. Reyher was from Caldwell, Ohio; Harris was from Gladstone, Mo.

Bennett was the Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit Two command diving officer and readiness and training officer. The charge sheets say he negligently failed to inform the unit’s commanding officer of a request to deviate from an approved training exercise and conduct a scuba dive exceeding normal working limits. Diving deeper than 130 feet requires the approval of a commanding officer. Reyher and Harris reached about 150 feet, according to testimony at a June hearing. At that preliminary hearing, discussion delved into whether proper protocol for allowing such a deep dive was followed. The training Reyher and Harris were undergoing at the time involved diving to the bottom of the pond, seeing if they could locate a helicopter and then returning to the surface. Bennett’s charge sheet also says he failed to ensure established diving procedures and safety requirements were adhered to.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Three contentious abortion-related provisions of Ohio’s budget violate a constitutional rule holding bills to a single subject, the American Civil Liberties Union argued in a lawsuit filed Wednesday. The lawsuit was filed in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court on behalf of Preterm, a Cleveland women’s health clinic that provides contraception, pregnancy counseling and abortions. It targets three amendments included in the $62 billion, two-year operating budget passed by lawmakers in June, maintaining they violate the state Constitution’s “single

subject” rule. One bans public hospitals from making transfer agreements with abortion clinics. Another requires clinics to present patients with evidence of a fetal heartbeat and other set information before performing an abortion, or face criminal penalties. A third funnels state money to private groups prohibited from mentioning abortion services as part of a “parenting and pregnancy” program. “None of these amendments have any place in the state budget bill,” said Susan Scheutzow, an ACLU cooperating attorney and partner at Kohrman Jackson & Krantz. “This massive bill is not intended to deal with new policy. The single subject of the budget should be

Nation/World Today in History The Associated Press

Today is Thursday, Oct. 10, the 283rd day of 2013. There are 82 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 10, 1962, President John F. Kennedy, responding to the thalidomide birth defects crisis, signed an amendment to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act requiring pharmaceutical companies to prove that their products were safe and effective prior to marketing. On this date: In 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy was established in Annapolis, Md. In 1911, Chinese revolutionaries launched an uprising which led to the collapse of the Qing (or Manchu) Dynasty and the establishment of the Republic of China. California voters approved Proposition 4, giving women the right to vote, and Proposition 7, which established the initiative process for proposing and enacting new laws. In 1913, the Panama Canal was effectively completed as President Woodrow Wilson sent a signal from the White House by telegraph, setting off explosives that destroyed a section of the Gamboa dike. In 1935, the George Gershwin opera “Porgy and Bess,” featuring an all-black cast, opened on Broadway; it ran for 124 performances. In 1938, Nazi Germany completed its annexation of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland (soo-DAYT’uhn-land). In 1943, Chiang Kai-shek took the oath of office as president of China. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower apologized to the finance minister of Ghana, Komla Agbeli Gbdemah, after the official was refused seating in a Howard Johnson’s restaurant near Dover, Del. In 1967, the Outer Space Treaty, prohibiting the placing of weapons of mass destruction on the moon or elsewhere in space, entered into force. In 1970, Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte was kidnapped by the Quebec Liberation Front, a militant separatist group. (Laporte’s body was found a week later.) Fiji became independent after nearly a century of British rule. In 1973, Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, accused of accepting bribes, pleaded no contest to one count of federal income tax evasion, and resigned his office. In 1982, Father Maximilian Kolbe, who died in the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp, was canonized by Pope John Paul II. In 1985, U.S. fighter jets forced an Egyptian plane carrying the hijackers of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro (ahKEE’-leh LOW’-roh) to land in Italy, where the gunmen were taken into custody.

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and lawmakers must rise above their incessant bickering and do more to end the partial government shutdown, according to a poll Wednesday that places the brunt of the blame on Republicans but finds no one standing tall in Washington. “So frustrating,” Martha Blair, 71, of Kerrville, Texas, said of the fiscal paralysis as her scheduled national parks vacation sits in limbo. “Somebody needs to jerk those guys together to get a solution, instead of just saying ‘no.’” The Associated Press-GfK survey affirms expectations by many in Washington — Republicans among them — that the GOP may end up taking the biggest hit in public opinion from the shutdown, as happened when much of the government closed 17 years ago. But the situation is fluid nine days into the shutdown and there’s plenty of disdain to go around. Overall, 62 percent mainly blamed Republicans for the shut-

NEW YORK (AP) — Quiet, please. Your dinner will now be served. That’s the message being sent to customers at a New York City restaurant that prohibits any talking during an occasionally put-on $40 prix fixe, four-course meal. Nicholas Nauman, head chef at Eat in Brooklyn’s trendy Greenpoint neighborhood, said he was inspired to pitch the tight-lipped consumption sessions after spending time in India, where Buddhist monks take their breakfast without exchanging words. “It’s just an opportunity to enjoy food in a way you might not have otherwise,” said the chef, noting that the sounds of forks on dishes and cooks in the kitchen provide some background noise to the experience. “There’s such a strong energy in the room.” The silent-dining experience, experts said, seems to fit with other attentiongetting shticks that many restaurant owners and chefs often resort to in the notoriously competitive restaurant business.

job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent. Indeed, anyone making headlines in the dispute has earned poor marks for his or her trouble, whether it’s Democrat Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, or Republican John Boehner, the House speaker, both with a favorability rating of 18 percent. And much of the country draws a blank on Republican Ted Cruz of Texas despite his 21-hour Senate speech before the shutdown. Only half in the poll were familiar enough with him to register an opinion. Among those who did, 32 percent viewed him unfavorably, 16 percent favorably. Tom Moore, 69, of Syracuse, N.Y., a retired electronics executive and Republican-leaning independent, said the GOP has made some good points, badly. The idea of delaying the health care law’s individual insurance mandate for a year, for example, strikes him as reasonable, but not when such demands come from hard-liners like Cruz.

Trial date stokes Egypt political drama Sarah El Deeb Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — The politically charged trial of Egypt’s Mohammed Morsi will begin Nov. 4, almost four months to the day after the country’s first democratically elected president was toppled by the military, authorities said Wednesday. The prosecution of Morsi on charges of inciting his followers to kill opponents of his rule takes the crackdown on his Muslim Brotherhood to a new level and is likely to fuel protests by his Islamist supporters, stoking the turmoil shaking Egypt. Since his July 3 ouster, Morsi’s backers have taken to the streets in rallies met by a fierce response by security forces that has left hundreds dead. Wednesday’s announcement comes as the United States announced it was cutting hundreds of mil-

lions of dollars in annual aid to Egypt and its military — a show of discontent with the crackdown aimed at pressuring the interim leadership to move quickly toward a democratically elected government. For Egypt’s militarybacked government, the trial is a chance to lay out their justification for the sweeping arrest campaign and ultimately for Morsi’s ouster. Authorities contend the former president and the Brotherhood, which dominated power during his year in office, committed crimes while in power — and have turned to violence since his removal. But the military, now Egypt’s dominant political power, also opens itself up to criticism it is carrying out show trials to crush the Brotherhood, which accuses the army and its supporters of wrecking Egypt’s fledgling democracy.

Already there are questions whether the trial, in which Morsi and 14 other members of his Brotherhood are defendants, can be fair. Morsi has been held in secret military detention since his ouster, with almost no contact with the outside world beyond two phone calls with his family. During his interrogation, his defense lawyers have not been allowed to talk to him and say they have not been shown any documentation of the prosecution’s case. “This is a trial held under the cannon of a tank,” said Mohammed Gharib, a member of Morsi’s legal team. “Is this an atmosphere for a fair trial?” Morsi’s son, Osama Morsi, told the Turkish news agency Anadolu that his father “rejects this trial and others and will not recognize it.”

U.S. cutting aid to Egypt WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is cutting hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Egypt in response to the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi and the crackdown by the military-backed government on his supporters. The U.S. provides $1.5 billion in aid each year to Egypt. While the State Department did not provide a dollar amount of what was being withheld, most of it was expected to be military aid. A U.S. official said the aid being withheld included 10 Apache helicopters at a cost of about $500 million. The official provided the information only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to comment by name. The U.S. decision to slash aid to Egypt will create new friction in Washington’s already uneasy relations with the government that ousted the first democratically elected Egyptian president. And the consequences won’t end there. The move will anger Persian Gulf states, push Egypt to seek assistance from U.S. rivals and upend decades of close ties with the Egyptians that that have been a bulwark of stability in the Middle East. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement Wednesday that the U.S. will withhold delivery of certain large-scale military systems as well as cash assistance to the Egyptian government until “credible progress” is made toward an inclusive government set up through free and fair elections.

President Barack Obama’s nominee for Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, currently vice chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, stands in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, where the president announced he is nominating Yellen to be chair of the Federal Reserve, succeeding Ben Bernanke.

Obama nominates Yellen to succeed Bernanke at Fed Jim Kuhnhenn and Martin Crutsinger Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a history-making selection, President Barack Obama nominated Janet Yellen to be chairman of the Federal Reserve, a critical post as the nation continues its fitful economic recovery. If confirmed she would be the first woman to lead the powerful central bank. Yellen, who currently holds the No. 2 spot at the Fed, would replace Ben Bernanke, whose eight-year tenure at the helm of the Fed ends Jan. 31. Obama introduced Yellen as a “proven leader.” ”And she’s tough, not just because she’s from Brooklyn,” he said. He credited her for being a consensus builder, adding: “She understands the human cost when people can’t find a job.” Before selecting Yellen, Obama had considered nominating former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, who had been a close Obama adviser during the first years of his presidency.

Tim Giardina, was notified Wednesday that he has been relieved of duty amid a military investigation of allegations that he used counterfeit chips at an Iowa casino, the Navy said. The move is exceedingly rare and perhaps unprecedented in the history of U.S. Strategic Command, which is responsible for all American nuclear warfighting forces, including nucleararmed submarines, bombers and landbased missiles. The Navy’s top spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said Giardina, who had held the job since December 2011, is being reassigned to the Navy staff pending the outcome of the probe by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The gambling matter originated as a local law enforcement investigation in Iowa in June. As a consequence of being removed from his post at Strategic Command, Giardina falls in rank to two-star admiral. He had been suspended by Gen. Robert Kehler, the top commander at Strategic Command, on Sept. 3, although that move was not disclosed publicly until Sept. 28. After his suspension Giardina remained at Strategic Command but was not allowed to perform duties that required use of his security clearance. The decision to take the next step — to relieve him of duty — was made on Oct. 3, one official said. That required approval by President Barack Obama, two defense officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal decision-making. Kehler had recommended to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that Giardina be relieved of duty and returned to the Navy, and Hagel agreed, according to Pentagon spokesman Carl Woog. A former commander of Strategic Command, retired Air Force Gen. Eugene Habiger, said he believes this is the first time in the history of the command that a deputy commander has been relieved of duty. Strategic Command was

created in 1992 at the end of the Cold War. The aim was to unify the command of nuclear forces previously run separately by the Air Force and the Navy. “I know of no other case ever of a deputy commander who was relieved for cause,” Habiger said in a telephone interview. He headed the command from 1996-98. Giardina is a career submarine officer. He commanded Submarine Squadron 17 in Bangor, Wash., which included 10 nuclear-armed Trident submarines from 2001-03. He is a 1979 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and holds an advanced degree in business administration. Iowa state officials have said Giardina is alleged to have used $1,500 in counterfeit chips at the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa, across the Missouri River from Strategic Command headquarters near Omaha, Neb. He has not been charged with a crime.

Alzheimer’s Awareness

Sidney Daily News, Thursday, October 10, 2013

Walk to End Alzheimer’s set for Saturday Teams are ready to walk during the Shelby County Walk to End Alzheimer’s scheduled for Saturday in Sidney. Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Sidney Senior Center, 304 S. West St. The walk begins at 10 a.m. and will be held rain or shine. A complimentary lunch follows the walk at the Senior Center. “Teams can comprise as few as two people,” said Lu Ann Presser, of Sidney, who, with Sarah Beers, of Dayton, cochairs the annual fundraiser that supports research and helps local victims of the disease and their families. “Walking with a group makes the event more fun. And, of course, the more people a team has, the more

potential it has to raise money for this extremely important cause.” Walks like the one in Sidney fund work toward a cure for the disease that has enfeebled

the minds of former presidents, movie stars, sports legends, authors and business leaders, as well as countless mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. According to the Alzheimer’s

Association, the malady is the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S. Some 5.4 million people currently suffer from it and the number is expected to rise dramatically as the boomer generation ages. More than 1,000 people in Shelby County have Alzheimer’s. “Today, more than half of all Americans know someone with Alzheimer’s,” says a pamphlet recently published by the association. “Soon, no one will be left untouched.” That’s why continued research is vitally important. Teams can be groups of friends and/or family members. Businesses can sport teams of co-workers and/or clients. Schools can field teams of stu-

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually even the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear after age 60. Estimates vary, but experts suggest that as many as 5.1 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia among older people. Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning—thinking, remembering, and reasoning— and behavioral abilities, to such an extent that it interferes with a person’s daily life and activities. Dementia ranges in severity from the mildest stage, when it is just beginning to affect a person’s functioning, to the most severe stage, when the person must depend completely on others for basic activities of daily living. Alzheimer’s disease is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer. In 1906, Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain tissue of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness. Her symptoms included memory loss, language problems, and unpredictable behavior. After she died, he examined her brain and found many abnormal clumps (now

called amyloid plaques) and tangled bundles of fibers (now called neurofibrillary tangles). Plaques and tangles in the brain are two of the main features of Alzheimer’s disease. The third is the loss of connections between nerve cells (neurons) in the brain. Changes in the brain in Alzheimer’s disease Although we still don’t know how the Alzheimer’s disease process begins, it seems likely that damage to the brain starts a decade or more before problems become evident. During the preclinical stage of Alzheimer’s disease, people are free of symptoms but toxic changes are taking place in the brain. Abnormal deposits of proteins form amyloid plaques and tau tangles throughout the brain, and once-healthy neurons begin to work less efficiently. Over time, neurons lose their ability to function and communicate with each other, and eventually they die. Before long, the damage spreads to a nearby structure in the brain called the hippocampus, which is essential in forming memories. As more neurons die, affected brain regions begin to shrink. By the final stage of Alzheimer’s, damage is widespread, and brain tissue has shrunk significantly. Very early signs and symptoms Memory problems are typically one of the

first warning signs of cognitive loss, possibly due to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Some people with memory problems have a condition called amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI). People with this condition have more memory problems than normal for people their age, but their symptoms are not as severe as those seen in people with Alzheimer’s disease. Other recent studies have found links between some movement difficulties and MCI. Researchers also have seen links between MCI and some problems with the sense of smell. The ability of people with MCI to perform normal daily activities is not significantly impaired. However, more older people with MCI, compared with those without MCI, go on to develop Alzheimer’s. A decline in other aspects of cognition, such as word-finding, vision/spatial issues, and impaired reasoning or judgment, may also signal the very early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists are looking to see whether brain imaging and biomarker studies, for example, of people with MCI and those with a family history of Alzheimer’s, can detect early changes in the brain like those seen in Alzheimer’s. Initial studies indicate that early detection using biomarkers and imaging may be

possible, but findings will need to be confirmed by other studies before these techniques can be used to help with diagnosis in everyday medical practice. These and other studies offer hope that someday we may have tools that could help detect Alzheimer’s early, track the course of the disease, and monitor response to treatments. Mild Alzheimer’s disease As Alzheimer’s disease progresses, memory loss worsens, and changes in other cognitive abilities are evident. Problems can include, for example, getting lost, trouble handling money and paying bills, repeating questions, taking longer to complete normal daily tasks, using poor judgment, and having some mood and personality changes. People often are diagnosed in this stage. Moderate Alzheimer’s disease In this stage, damage occurs in areas of the brain that control language, reasoning, sensory processing, and conscious thought. Memory loss and confusion grow worse, and people begin to have problems recognizing family and friends. They may be unable to learn new things, carry out tasks that involve multiple steps (such as getting dressed), or cope with new situations. They may have hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia,

and may behave impulsively. Severe Alzheimer’s disease By the final stage, plaques and tangles have spread throughout the brain, and brain tissue has shrunk significantly. People with severe Alzheimer’s cannot communicate and are completely dependent on others for their care. Near the end, the person may be in bed most or all of the time as the body shuts down. What causes Alzheimer’s Scientists don’t yet fully understand what causes Alzheimer’s disease, but it has become increasingly clear that it develops because of a

complex series of events that take place in the brain over a long period of time. It is likely that the causes include some mix of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Because people differ in their genetic make-up and lifestyle, the importance of any one of these factors in increasing or decreasing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s may differ from person to person. The basics of Alzheimer’s Scientists are conducting studies to learn more about plaques, tangles, and other features of Alzheimer’s disease. They can now visualize betaSee DISEASE | 7

Disease From page 6 These tests may be repeated to give doctors information about how the person’s memory is changing over time. Early, accurate diagnosis is beneficial for several reasons. It can tell people whether their symptoms are from Alzheimer’s or another cause, such as stroke, tumor, Parkinson’s disease, sleep disturbances, side effects of medications, or other conditions that may be treatable and possibly reversible. Beginning treatment early on in the disease process can help preserve function for some time, even though the underlying disease process cannot be changed. Having an early diagnosis also helps families plan for the future, make living arrangements, take care of financial and legal matters, and develop support networks. In addition, an early diagnosis can provide greater opportunities for people to get involved in clinical trials. In a typical clinical trial, scientists test a drug or treatment to see if that intervention is effective and for whom it would work best. Participating in clinical trials People with Alzheimer’s disease, those with MCI, those with a family history of Alzheimer’s, and healthy people with no memory problems and no family history of the disease may be able to take part in clinical trials. Participants in clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease help scientists learn about the brain in healthy aging as well as what happens in Alzheimer’s. Results of clinical trials may lead to improved prevention and treatment approaches. Volunteering to participate in clinical trials is one way to help in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. The National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), leads the Federal Government’s research efforts on Alzheimer’s. NIA-supported Alzheimer’s Disease Centers located throughout the United States conduct many clinical trials and carry out a wide range of research, including studies of the causes, diagnosis, and management of Alzheimer’s. NIA also sponsors the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS), a consortium of leading researchers throughout the U.S. and Canada who conduct clinical trials on promising Alzheimer’s treatments. To find out more about Alzheimer’s clinical trials, talk to your health care provider or contact NIA’s ADEAR Center at 1-800438-4380. Or, visit the ADEAR Center clinical trials database. You also can sign up for email alerts that let you know when new clinical trials are added to the database. More information about clinical trials is available at www.ClinicalTrials. gov. Also see Participating in Alzheimer’s Disease Clinical Trials and Studies. Treating Alzheimer’s disease Alzheimer’s disease is complex, and it is unlikely that any one intervention will be found to delay, prevent, or cure it. That’s why current approaches in treatment and research focus on several different aspects, including helping people maintain mental function, managing behavioral symptoms, and slowing or delaying the symptoms of disease. Maintaining mental function Four medications are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat Alzheimer’s. Donepezil (Aricept®), rivastigmine (Exelon®), and galantamine (Razadyne®) are used to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer’s (donepezil can be used for severe Alzheimer’s as well). Memantine (Namenda®) is used to treat moderate to severe Alzheimer’s. These drugs work by regulating neurotransmitters (the

chemicals that transmit messages between neurons). They may help maintain thinking, memory, and speaking skills, and help with certain behavioral problems. However, these drugs don’t change the underlying disease process, are effective for some but not all people, and may help only for a limited time. Managing behavioral symptoms Common behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer’s include sleeplessness, agitation, wandering, anxiety, anger, and depression. Scientists are learning why these symptoms occur and are studying new treatments—drug and non-drug—to manage them. Treating behavioral symptoms often makes people with Alzheimer’s more comfortable and makes their care easier for caregivers. Slowing, delaying or preventing Alzheimer’s disease Alzheimer’s disease research has developed to a point where scientists can look beyond treating symptoms to think about addressing underlying disease processes. In ongoing clinical trials, scientists are looking at many possible interventions, such as immunization therapy, cognitive training, physical activity, antioxidants, and the effects of cardiovascular and diabetes treatments. Supporting families and caregivers Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease can have high physical, emotional, and financial costs. The demands of day-to-day care, changing family roles, and difficult decisions about placement in a care facility can be hard to handle. Researchers have learned much about Alzheimer’s caregiving, and studies are helping to develop new ways to support caregivers. Becoming well-informed about the disease is one important long-term strategy. Programs that teach families about the various stages of Alzheimer’s and about flexible and practical strategies for dealing with difficult caregiving situations provide vital help to those who care for people with Alzheimer’s. Developing good coping skills and a strong support network of family and friends also are important ways that caregivers can help themselves handle the stresses of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. For example, staying physically active provides physical and emotional benefits. Some Alzheimer’s caregivers have found that participating in a support group is a critical lifeline. These support groups allow caregivers to find respite, express concerns, share experiences, get tips, and receive emotional comfort. Many organizations, such as those listed in the “For More Information” section, sponsor in-person and online support groups across the country. There are a growing number of groups for people in the early stage of Alzheimer’s and their families. Support networks can be especially valuable when caregivers face the difficult decision of whether and when to place a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility. For more information about at-home caregiving, see Caring for

a Person with Alzheimer’s Disease: Your Easy-to-Use Guide from the National Institute on Aging. Advancing understanding Thirty years ago, we knew very little about Alzheimer’s disease. Since then, scientists have made important advances. Research supported by NIA and other organizations has expanded knowledge of brain function in healthy older people, identified ways we might lessen normal age-related declines in mental function, and deepened our understanding of the disease. Many scientists and physicians are now working together to untangle the genetic, biological, and environmental factors that, over many years, ultimately result in Alzheimer’s. This effort is bringing us closer to better managing and, ultimately, preventing this devastating disease.

County Alzheimer’s support group grows During 2012 the number of participants at the Shelby County Support Group has grown,” said Lu Ann Presser, local support group facilitator for the Miami Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. This is not surprising, for the number of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s continue to grow. The greatest risk factor for the disease is age and in the U.S. the fastest growing segment of the population is those over 65. Early detection and treatment are the best way to help those with Alzheimer’s. The 10 warnings signs you need to watch for are: memory loss that affects job skills; difficulty performing familiar tasks; problems with language; disorientation to time and place; impaired judgments; problems with abstract thinking; misplacing things; change in mood, behaviors or personality; and loss of initiative. If Alzheimer’s is suspected the person should be seen by their physician. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the disease, but there are medications that may help delay the progression of the symptoms. The Miami Valley Chapter provides education, respite care, help line, printed materials, speakers bureau and support groups. The Shelby County Support Group meets the fourth Thursday of every month and is co-facilitated by Presser and Melissa Ashby. It meets at 7 p.m. at Dorothy Love Retirement Community. To help finance these services each year the Chapter holds Memory Walks. In 2012 Presser and Sarah Beers co-chaired the Shelby County Memory Walk. In 2013, the Walk will be held Saturday and the chairs are recruiting committee members now. For additional information on any service or find out how you can help, call the Miami Valley Chapter at (800) 441-3322 or Presser at 497-6542.

Rising Alzheimer’s creates strain on caregivers Lauran Neergaard Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — David Hilfiker knows what’s coming. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s so early that he’s had time to tell his family what he wants to happen once forgetfulness turns incapacitating. “When it’s time to put me in an institution, don’t have me at home and destroy your own life,” said the retired physician, who is still well enough that he blogs about the insidious progress of the disease. “Watching the Lights Go Out,” it’s titled. Nearly half of all seniors who need some form of long-term care — from help at home to fulltime care in a facility — have dementia, the World Alzheimer Report said Thursday. It’s a staggering problem as the global population ages, placing enormous strain on families who provide the bulk of that care at least early on, and on national economies alike. Indeed, cognitive impairment is the strongest predictor of who will move into a care facility within the next two years, 7.5 times more likely than people with cancer, heart disease or other chronic ailments of older adults, the report found. “It’s astonishing,” said Marc Wortmann, executive director of Alzheimer’s Disease International, which commissioned the report and focused on the problems of caregiving. “What many countries try to do is keep people away from care homes because they say that’s cheaper. Yes it’s cheaper for the government or the health system, but it’s not always the best solution.” And dropping birth rates mean there are fewer children in families to take care of aging parents, too, said Michael Hodin of the Global Coalition on Aging. “Very shortly there will be more of us over 60 than under 15,” he noted. Today, more than 35 million people worldwide, including 5 million in the U.S., are estimated to have Alzheimer’s. Barring a medical breakthrough, those numbers are expected to more than double by 2050. This week, the U.S. National Institutes of Health announced $45 million in new Alzheimer’s research, with most of the money focused on finding ways to prevent or at least delay the devastating disease. The Obama administration had hoped to invest $100 million in new Alzheimer’s research this year, a move blocked by the budget cuts known as the sequester. Overall, the nation has been investing about $400 million a year in Alzheimer’s research.

beta-amyloid associated with plaques by imaging the brains of living individuals. Scientists are also exploring the very earliest steps in the disease process. Findings from these studies will help them understand the causes of Alzheimer’s. One of the great mysteries of Alzheimer’s disease is why it largely strikes older adults. Research on how the brain changes normally with age is shedding light on this question. For example, scientists are learning how age-related changes in the brain may harm neurons and contribute to Alzheimer’s damage. These age-related changes include atrophy (shrinking) of certain parts of the brain, inflammation, the production of unstable molecules called free radicals, and mitochondrial dysfunction (a breakdown of energy production within a cell). Genetics Early-onset Alzheimer’s is a rare form of the disease. It occurs in people age 30 to 60 and represents less than 5 percent of all people who have Alzheimer’s disease. Most cases of early-onset Alzheimer’s are familial Alzheimer’s disease, caused by changes in one of three known genes inherited from a parent. Most people with Alzheimer’s disease have “late-onset” Alzheimer’s, which usually develops after age 60. Many studies have linked the apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene to late-onset Alzheimer’s. This gene has several forms. One of them, APOE ε4, seems to increase a person’s risk of getting the disease. However, carrying the APOE ε4 form of the gene does not necessarily mean that a person will develop Alzheimer’s disease, and people carrying no APOE ε4 can also develop the disease. Most experts believe that additional genes may influence the development of lateonset Alzheimer’s. Scientists around the world are searching for these genes, and have identified a number of common genes in addition to APOE ε4 that may increase a person’s risk for late-onset Alzheimer’s. For more about this area of research, see the Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Fact Sheet. Environmental/lifestyle factors Research also suggests that a host of factors beyond basic genetics may play a role in the development and course of Alzheimer’s disease. There is a great deal of interest, for example, in associations between cognitive decline and vascular and metabolic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. Understanding these relationships and testing them in clinical trials will help us understand whether reducing risk factors for these conditions may help with Alzheimer’s as well. Further, a nutritious diet, physical activity, social engagement, and mentally stimulating pursuits can all help people stay healthy as they age. New research suggests the possibility that these and other factors also might help to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. Clinical trials of specific interventions are underway to test some of these possibilities. Diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease Alzheimer’s disease can be definitively diagnosed only after death, by linking clinical measures with an examination of brain tissue and pathology in an autopsy. But doctors now have several methods and tools to help them determine fairly accurately whether a person who is having memory problems has “possible Alzheimer’s dementia” (dementia may be due to another cause) or “probable Alzheimer’s dementia” (no other cause for dementia can be found). To diagnose Alzheimer’s, doctors may:

Christian Academy Schools Board President Todd Miller (l-r) and Superintendent Mary Smith recognize retiring school board member Roger Grinstead, all of Sidney, for his contributions during the Christian Academy Schools Annual Faith Banquet Sunday. Retiring school board member John Moeller was also recognized at the banquet.

Christian Academy holds Faith Banquet Christian Academy Schools of Sidney held its Faith Banquet on Sunday afternoon. About 75 attendees were welcomed by Superintendent Mary Smith and the Board of Directors. Following the welcome was an invocation prayer by Pastor Don Burley of Pemberton United Methodist Church. A sixthgrade student at the school, Melody Joines, then sang the national anthem. Proceeds from this annual fund raiser provide tuition assistance to families based upon financial need. As part of the banquet, the school recognized its 35th anniversary. Founded in 1978 as Christ The King United Christian School, the kindergarten through 12th grade private school has been at its current location on Russell Road since 2002. Recently retired board member John Moeller was recognized on Sunday for his 12 years of board service. He was also a founder of the school. Moeller described the school as being like a “wandering Jew” during its early years as it sought the permanent location from where it now serves approximately 165 students. Moeller noted that one of the school’s major accomplishments during his time on the board was its accreditation through

the Association of Christian Schools International and AdvancED. Smith and current board President Todd Miller also recognized Roger Grinstead for his years of board service. Grinstead served on the board for six years. He is retired as vice president of Human Resources and Organization Development at Emerson Climate Technologies. Moeller and Grinstead were given plaques inscribed with verses from Psalms 1 and 46 chosen specifically for them. Two students were selected as speakers for the event. Isaac Abbot and Caleb Ordean, both seniors at the school, reflected on how their years at Christian Academy have shaped and molded them for their futures. Both young men intend to answer calls to full-time ministry in the future. The main speaker for the afternoon was Allison Smith. Smith is a 2005 graduate of the school. She holds an associate degree in early childhood education from Edison Community College and a bachelor’s degree as an intervention specialist from Ohio University. Smith gave details of her recent three-month mission trip to Liberia, Africa. She recalled seeing a woman standing in a pile of trash and,

later, on the porch of an abandoned building. She recalled asking herself “Why is she in this condition? Does anyone love her? Does anyone take care of her?” That image played a great role in Smith’s decision to make it a goal to return to Liberia and care for and train residents there who suffer from disabilities. The Christian Academy alumai recalled feeling like she was in Liberia with little more than a cup of water and a huge country in need of it. But, she explained that as her time in Liberia continued, she discovered that she was the one to be changed. She felt herself stretched by working with folks there who had so little of what she has in material things but yet were so steadfast in their faith as Christians. Ultimately, Smith determined that life is easier in Liberia. There are fewer distractions, forcing you to be more reliant on God. Along with that comes the ability focus on doing what God wants to you to do, one step at a time. The event concluded with Moeller reflecting on the value of a Christian education, and the fact that it is something that is available to local residents. Local pastor Ben Hunt then closed the afternoon with prayer.

What A Pharmacy Was Meant To Be®


In the book of Acts we see the phrase, “cut to the heart,” two times, but with two totally different results. Let’s consider these. Day of Pentecost: Peter and the other Apostles were given the important job of preaching the very first Gospel sermon. They had just received the Holy Spirit, which allowed them to speak in different tongues or languages. This was important because there were people there from all over the world. They had come to Jerusalem to celebrate Pentecost. Peter’s sermon is recorded in Acts, Chapter 2. Peter stood up and began to explain that God had

SIDNEY AREA RESIDENTS CASH IN: Pictured above and protected by armed guards are the Overstuffed Money Bags containing 10 individual Vault Bags full of money that everyone is trying to get. That’s because each Vault Bag is known to contain over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s.

State zip codes determine who gets free Silver coins Vault Bags loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued coins are up for grabs as thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money; now any resident of Ohio who finds their zip code listed below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep any valuable coins found inside by covering the Vault Bag fee within the next 2 days OHIO - The phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because for the next 2 days Vault Bags containing valuable U.S. Gov’t issued coins are actually being handed over to Sidney area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication. “Now that the bags of money are up for grabs Ohio residents are claiming as many as they can get before they’re all gone. That’s because after the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But, we do know that some of the coins date clear back to the early 1900s, including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars, so there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins,” said Timothy J. Shissler, Chief Numismatist for the private World Reserve. The only thing residents need to do is find their zip code on the Distribution List printed in today’s publication. If their zip code is on the list, they need to immediately call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day order deadline ends. Everyone who does is being given the 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty coin for free just by covering the fee for each Vault Bag loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins for only $99 each as long as they call before the deadline ends. Since this advertising announcement can’t stop dealers and collectors from hoarding any of the valuable coins they can get their hands on, the World Reserve had to set a strict limit of ten Vault Bags per resident. “Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but those who get in on this now will be the really smart ones. Just think what some of these coins could be worth someday,” said Shissler. Each Vault Bag is loaded in part with highly sought after collector coins dating clear back to the 1900s including a 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar, an Eisenhower Dollar, some of the last ever minted U.S. Dollars, Kennedy Half Dollars, Silver Mercury Dimes, rarely seen Liberty ‘V’ Nickels, nearly 100 year old Buffalo Nickels and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars. “We’re bracing for all the calls because there are just hours left for residents to get the Silver Walking Liberty coin free,” he said. So, Sidney area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in today’s publication need to immediately call the National Claim Hotlines before the 2-day deadline ends to get the Silver Walking Liberty coin free. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. N




How to claim the bags of U.S. Gov’t issued coins: Read the important information

listed below about claiming the Vault Bags. Then call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day deadline ends at: 1-866-342-4861

Who gets to claim the bags of money: Thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money. Now Sidney area residents who find the first two digits of their zip code listed in today’s publication and beat the 2-day deadline get to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. I keep calling and can’t get through: That’s because each Vault Bag is guaranteed to contain a free Silver Walking Liberty coin and just that one coin alone could be worth $15-$325 in collector value. So thousands of residents are calling to claim as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. In fact, since the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 everyone is claiming as many bags as they can before the deadline ends. So if lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. How much are the Vault Bags worth: Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but here’s why Ohio residents are claiming as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. After the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But we do know that some of the coins date back to the 1900s. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins. So you better believe at just $ 99 the Vault Bag fee is a real steal since the free Silver Walking Liberty coin alone could be worth from $15 to $325 in collector value. Are the Silver Walking Liberty coins really Free: Yes. All Sidney area residents who beat the 2-day deadline are instantly being awarded a Silver Walking Liberty coin issued by the U.S. Gov’t between 1916-1947 free with each Vault Bag they claim. Why is the Vault Bag fee so low: Because thousands of U.S. residents have missed the deadline to claim the money the World Reserve has re-allocated Vault Bags that will be scheduled to be sent out in the next 2 days. That means the money is up for grabs and now any resident who finds the first two digits of their zip code on the Distribution List below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. Each Vault Bag fee is set at $149 for residents who miss the 2 day deadline, but for those who beat the 2-day deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 as long as they call the National Claim Hotline before the deadline ends at: 1-866-342-4861.


N LOADED WITH OVER 100 COINS: The phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because thousands of sealed Vault Bags each loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and currently circulating coins are being handed over to Sidney area residents.

ROACH: Hi. I live in Eugene, Ore., and we have seen “stuff” wash up on our shores from the storm in Japan. Now the nuclear waste is in the ocean waters. I am concerned about eating fish. I love it and think it’s good for me, but I also wonder whether eating fish could be bad for us, with all the poison in the water? I love salmon, cod and halibut, so I have a good reason to worry about this. — J.S. ANSWER: The damage to the nuclear power plant in Japan did cause the release of contaminated water into the ocean.

Fish caught off the coast of Japan in 2011 and 2012 did exceed recommend levels. I personally wouldn’t recommend eating fish caught off the coast of Fukushima. However, marine biologists have stated that fish caught more than 100 miles away from you should be safe. Locally caught seafood in Oregon should not be affected at all.

Chris Frantz threw the ball in and it bounced off Steve Evans. Right there to punch it in was freshman Caleb Paulino. Fifteen minutes later, Frantz intercepted a pass at midfield, drove down and ripped a bender from about 30 yards out that found the net.

Jackets renew rivaly with Indians Ken Barhorst

It was a win to savor last week at Sidney Memorial Stadium, a 42-28 verdict over Troy in a game that head coach Adam Doengesfelt his team imposed its will on the Trojans. But he’s quick to add that the “atta-boys” are over and it’s time for his team to move on from that verdict and concentrate on a difficult challenge Friday night at backyard rival Piqua. The Indians are just 1-5 on the season but have played a gruelling schedule so far. They started off with an easy win over Toledo Rogers (1-5), but have since dropped five in a row, 24-23 to Kings, 49-42 to Lima Senior, 35-13 to Beavercreek, 52-34 to Springboro and 69-34 last week to Trotwood. Kings is 4-2, Senior and Beavercreek are 3-3, Springboro is 5-1 and Trotwood 3-2, with one of those losses by forfeit. “The best 1-5 team I’ve ever seen,” said Doenges Wednesday. “And that’s not a speech I gave to the players. This is legitimately

the best 1-5 team I’ve ever seen.” The last two losses have driven up Piqua’s defensive average to 39 points per game, but the Indians can put the ball in the endzone, averaging 31. They have a potent running game, led by 5-foot-11, 185-pound junior Trent Yeomans, who has already gone over 1,000 yards for the season against that tough schedule. He has 1,015 yards so far on 109 carries, and that’s an average of 9.3 yards per carry. And he’s scored 13 touchdowns so far. Quarterback Daniel Monnin, a 6-2, 213-pound senior, has hit 50 percent of his passes, 47-for-93, for 689 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s been picked off just four times. His favorite receivers are Colton Bachman and Tate Honeycutt, with 11 receptions apiece. Honeycutt averages 24.5 yards per catch and has scored five touchdowns. And Bachman is a big target at 6-5, 180. He’s just a sophomore. “I told the kids, Yeomans is probably the best running back we’ll face this year,” said Doenges. “I


our guys can have a game like that,” said Doenges. “Go back to the Bellefontaine game when Scott Stewart had 11 catches. We have a lot of kids we feel can have big games for us.” Running back Eric Barnes kept the Trojans honest last week by rushing for 141 yards on 21 carries. And quarterback Jordan Fox added 69 yards rushing to go with 248 yards passing on 15-for-29. Fox is fourth in the GWOC in passing yardage with 964 so far, and McNeal is sixth in receiving yards with 355. “We don’t take one game and make it any bigger than another, but this game is important,” said Doenges. “Our crowd has been great at home, and we travel well, so I’m expecting a good following Friday night from our fans.” Black Plague The Sidney Football Moms want to expand on the theme the coaching staff use for the defense — the Black Plague. The Moms would like everyone planning to attend Friday’s game at Piqua to wear black in support of the team.

Loramie freshman Knouff ready for state tourney Ken Barhorst

FORT LORAMIE — Fort Loramie’s Emily Knouff will compete in the State Golf Tournament this weekend — pretty impressive considering she’s only a freshman and didn’t start playing until she was a seventh grader. Knouff, already rewriting the record books in girls golf at Loramie, will tee off at 9:40 Friday morning at the Ohio State University Gray Course in Columbus after qualifying as an individual with a 73 in last week’s district tournament. “I knew she was good. But I really didn’t know how good she was,” said Fort Loramie girls coach Mike Anthony. “It’s been a pleasure watching her all season.” He compares her to one of his former golfers, Brooke Albers, who also competed at state and is now golfing for the University of Findlay. “I would say they’re very similar,” he said. “Emily has tied the 9-hole and 18-hole records, but Brooke still has the season average for nine holes at 37.6. Emily is just very consistent and nothing bothers her. She makes bad shots like everyone else, but she doesn’t let it bother her. She’s very, very cool under pressure.” Knouff credits the coaching she received from Shelby Oaks club pro Rob Fridley and his son Nate, who went on to an outstanding career at Ohio Wesleyan. “I had my first lesson with Nate when I was in seventh grade, and Rob helped me too. And I’ve loved it ever since,” she said. “From the very beginning, Rob and Nate said have no emotion. Don’t let anything get to you because you don’t want to let it ruin the rest of your round. And that’s what I try to do.” With her accomplishments in just a couple years of playing the game, the natural ability is obviously there. But Anthony said it goes much further than that. “She has talent, but she puts a lot of time into it,” he said. “She plays in a lot of tournaments over the summer and in a junior league

in Lima, tournaments around the tri-state… The talent is definitely there, but so is the work ethic.” “My summers are basically full of golf,” Knouff said. “I have a ton of support from my family, all the guys at the golf course, and from coach Anthony. All the things that have happened are exciting, but it all goes back to practicing and having good coaches.” Knouff plays no other sports at Fort Loramie. She played basketball in the seventh grade but suffered a torn ACL that required surgery. She’s stuck with golf ever since and was back on the course in March following surgery that December.

Her scores are good enough that she will likely challenge for the top in the Division II state tournament Friday and Saturday. “I’m just going to do the best I can and have fun,” she said. “It’s really exciting to be able to go there. Just being able to go is awesome.” “Golf, there’s a lot of luck involved,” said Anthony. “It depends on how it bounces. You can’t predict how it’s going to to go. But if she plays well, you never know.” She will see some familiar faces in Columbus. The Versailles girls qualified as a team in Division II.

Sidney, Anna host league cross country meets Saturday Shelby County will be invaded by cross country runners on Saturday, with two conference meets scheduled that day. Sidney will be hosting the Greater Western Ohio Conference meet Saturday at the high school, starting with the middle school girls race at 9:30 a.m. And the County meet will be held in Anna at the same time, bringing the seven league schools together for their annual event. GWOC meet The GWOC includes 18 schools, including Sidney, Piqua, Troy, Vandalia, Greenville, Trotwood, Centerville, Beavercreek, Springfield, Northmont, Fairmont, Wayne, Miamisburg, Fairborn, West Carrollton, Lebanon, Xenia and Springboro. The Centerville boys are the favorites, considering they are ranked No. 7 in Ohio in the lastest Division I coaches poll. The Centerville girls, meanwhile,

are No. 2-ranked in the state, followed by Springboro No. 3 and Beavercreek N0. 4, so that should make for an interesting duel when they take to the course. There will be admission charged for the event — $6 for adults and $4 for students. GWOC T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts and sweat pants will be sold at the meet, with the proceeds helping to offet the cost of the meet. The schedule will be as follows: 9:30 — Middle school girls 10:00 — Middle school boys 10:30 — Varsity girls 11:15 — Varsity boys 11:45 — Middle school awards Noon — Reserve girls race 12:45 — Reserve boys race 1:30 — Awards

He can make you miss, he’s physical and he’s not afraid to block.” The Yellow Jackets, meanwhile, are off to their best start since the 4-1 start in 2007, coming into Friday’s game with a 4-2 mark. However, the schedule has paled in comparison to Piqua’s so far, with three of Sidney’s wins coming against teams that are all 0-6 on the year, including St. Marys, West Carrollton and Belmont. Last week’s win over Troy, however, added some legitimacy to the Jackets’ strong start this season. “I thought we made a great leap forward last week,” Doenges said. “We came out and imposed our will on somebody, and we hadn’t done that in a while. We need to come out with that kind of fire again this week.” Last week’s win was a comingout party for Darryl McNeal, a sophomore who caught 11 passes for 192 yards and four touchdowns. “Darryl is a special athlete, but we really believe that any one of

The meet will feature some of the state’s top runners, since the Anna boys are ranked 12th in the state in the latest coaches poll for Division III, the Russia boys are ranked No. 16, the Russia girls are ranked No. 7 in the state, and Fort Loramie No. 20. The County meet will begin with the varsity races, starting with the girls at 10 a.m. Saturday. The schedule will be as follows: 10:00 — Varsity girls 10:30 — Varsity boys 11:00 — Junior high girls 11:30 — Junior high boys Awards — 12:15

The Minster girls will likely battle the Coldwater girls for the top spot. Minster is the No. 3-ranked team in the state and Coldwater No. 4. Versailles is ranked No. 16.

our ills,” Rioch said. While Coldwater has its way with most teams it plays, the Rockets always seem to give the Cavaliers all they can handle. Last year’s score was just 7-0, and three years ago, Anna beat the Cavs 38-28, only to lose by 10 in the playoffs. “Coldwater is a little different his year,” said Rioch. “The Hoying kid at quarterback is a lot more of a runner than a thrower and he’s arguably the best athlete in the league. He covers up a lot of mistakes. And he might also be the best defensive player in the league. They don’t pound you off the ball, they spread you out. And conversely, we’re going to bring it in tight, knock you off the ball and play keepaway.” The Rockets went back to some Wing-T last week in the absence of Williams, and Matthew Bruce, who Rioch said is more suited to the Wing-T, responded with 82 yards rushing on 17 carries.

Vols to play game at Bristol Associated Press

Call it football in the fast lane, though it has nothing to do with those up-tempo-offenses. Tennessee and Virginia Tech will play a game at Bristol Motor Speedway in September 2016, a person with knowledge of the plans told The Associated Press. The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because an official announcement is still in the works.

The speedway holds 150,000. The NCAArecognized attendance record for college football is 115,109, set last month at Michigan Stadium for the Michigan-Notre Dame game. The Bristol Motor Speedway Commission announced plans for a news conference Monday at the track for what it called a major announcement, but gave no details. “I can just tell you I’m going to be in Bristol on

Monday from about 11 to 1,” Virginia Tech athletic director Jim Weaver said in a telephone interview Wednesday night. He said football coach Frank Beamer would be there as well. “I think it has the chance to be a really nice event,” Weaver said, adding that the idea has been in the works for “three or four months.” Tennessee athletics spokesman Jason Yellin said the school could not

comment. Track officials have talked openly about trying to host a game at the speedway, and there has been speculation about a matchup between the Volunteers and Hokies for years. Bristol is about halfway between the two campuses on Interstate 81, 110 miles northeast of Knoxville, Tenn., and 125 miles southwest of Blacksburg, Va.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden fires a pass during practice a the NFL football team’s facility in Berea, Ohio Wednesday. Weeden is starting again and hopes to keep the first-place Browns rolling this week against Detroit.

Weeden getting do-over with Browns BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The disgust came quickly, boos raining down from every corner of the stadium on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden before he had barely broken a sweat. Forced into last week’s game against Buffalo after Brian Hoyer went out with a season-ending knee injury, Weeden, who began the year as Cleveland’s starter only to lose his job to injury and be demoted, threw a couple incompletions and then felt the enormous pressure of more than 70,000 demanding fans breathing down his neck. He could have cracked or crumbled. Instead, Weeden conquered. He turned the game — and perhaps his career — around. “Facing adversity, it makes you stronger as a person,” Weeden said. “That’s life.” Weeden’s season has turned 360 degrees in just five weeks. After spraining his right thumb in Cleveland’s second game, Weeden sat for two weeks while Hoyer, the lifelong Browns fan who dreamed of leading his hometown team, led Cleveland to consecutive wins. Weeden recovered, but Browns coach Rob Chudzinksi decided to stick with Hoyer, dropping Weeden to a backup role. He went into Thursday’s nationally televised game against the Bills

as Cleveland’s No. 2 quarterback but was thrust into action when Hoyer tore his anterior cruciate ligament. Weeden came in rusty, missed on his first two passes and then jogged to the sideline amid jeers. Weeden, though, rallied himself along with the Browns (3-2). He threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon and led the Browns to a 37-24 win, putting them in first place after five games for the first time since 1995. Cleveland’s comeback, and Weeden’s rebirth. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Weeden grew from all that he has experienced already this season. “You look at being the starter, getting injured and having to sit and watch,” he said. “And then get thrown out into the game, early in the game where he didn’t get a lot of practice time; getting booed; back and forth; and him ultimately making some big plays that helped us win that game. “I think that’s growth, and I think that he has a sense of confidence of what he’s been able to do. We’ll get him back out there for another week of practice, and I think that will help him get better and get ready to play even more so.” Weeden, who will start this week as the Browns host the Detroit Lions (3-2), said the time spent off the field was invaluable to his development.

“You dig deep and you try to find yourself and you do a lot of soul searching,” he said. “You’ve just got to find a way to take the positives and build on them.” Weeden heads into this new beginning looking to fix some of his issues — decision-making, pocket presence top the list — during Cleveland’s first two games, losses to Miami and Baltimore. Weeden was guilty of holding onto the ball too long while waiting for receivers to get open. The delays made it tough on Cleveland’s offensive line, which can’t hold blocks forever and contributed to Weeden being sacked 16 times. He knows he must get rid of the ball more quickly, and said the play often dictates when he can let it go. “There are times you’re going to have to sit back and hold it because you might have a double move or you might have a deeper progression route,” he said. “That goes to the confidence I have in the guys up front and go from there.” One major difference for Weeden is that he has Gordon as a target. The receiver was suspended for Cleveland’s first two games, depriving Weeden of one of his biggest playmakers. Gordon had 14 receptions in two weeks with Hoyer, and grabbed four Weeden passes last week.

A heavy price to pay Dear Readers: Earlier this year, I ran a column about the hazards of heavy furniture and unsecured TVs falling on children! This happens more than you really want to know! In years past, thousands of children, most under age 6, have gone to an emergency room for injuries from a tipped-over TV. This potentially deadly situation warrants repeating this warning. As newer f l at- s c re e n models are purchased and mounted on walls, older, heavier TVs most likely are Hints going into bedrooms, from or even Heloise dens p l ay ro o m s .

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t curious children like to climb? Think about it. Look around your home. The Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests that ALL TVs be anchored with straps, L braces, etc. Or, set a free-standing older model as far back on the furniture as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Heloise Glass and window cleaning Dear Heloise: A great glass and window cleaner is a wetmop refill that has a scrubbing strip.

Sidney Daily News, Thursday, October 10, 2013

Military rape film at Edison Community College PIQUA — The Sidney-Shelby County Chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), in partnership with Edison Community College, will host a screening of “The Invisible War” at 7 p.m. on Oct. 17 in the Robinson Theater at the Piqua campus. The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. The 95-minute screening of the 2012 Academy Award-nominated documentary will be followed by a 30-minute panel discussion. The panel will comprise

a former U.S. Navy Pilot and current Edison mathematics professor, Terry Calvert; former U.S. Army nurse Kathy Hayes; and other panelists. “The Invisible War” is a groundbreaking investigation into one of America’s most disturbing secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. Focusing on the powerful stories of several young veterans, the film is a moving examination of the staggering personal and societal costs of these assaults. Meticulously researched, the film reveals that hundreds of service members

have been assaulted over the past several decades, with nearly half of those assaulted being male. Combining interviews with high-ranking military officials and member of Congress with the devastating testimony of veterans, the film catalogues the conditions that have protected perpetrators and allowed this epidemic to continue. Both a comprehensive inquiry and an insight into what can be done to bring about much-needed change, “The Invisible War” urges people, civilian and military alike, to fight for a system that protects men and women in uniform.

AAUW recognizes the importance of supporting survivors of military sexual trauma. The AAUW is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. Since its founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political. “The Invisible War” is not rated. However, due to its content, it is recommended only for mature audiences. For information, email

Troy speaker discusses human trafficking TROY — Working to identify a victim of human trafficking can be similar to making a diagnosis, Jeffrey Barrows, D.O., told health care professionals during an education program at Upper Valley Medical Center. The world of human trafficking, whether domestic or international, remains a mystery to many, though Barrows said awareness is growing. He defined trafficking as “any form of extreme exploitation of one human being by another for personal or financial gain.” The motive behind most human trafficking is money, Barrows said. The most common forms are labor exploitation and commercial sexual exploitation. Victims of trafficking may be hidden and may not want to be found, he said. “Who knows? Victims of trafficking can be around you, and you not know it,” said Barrows. An Ohio resident, he is a former gynecologist now working to raising awareness about human trafficking, particularly involving minors for sex. His work includes helping raise awareness among health care professionals. He has worked with the Christian Medical Association and the U.S. State Department’s Trafficking in Persons’ office and served on the Ohio attorney general’s commis-

Wine tasting event planned

sion to study human trafficking in Ohio. Good statistics on the number of victims of human trafficking are not available, he said. The number of domestic, minor, sextrafficking victims in the country was estimated at 100,000 in 2010 by the director of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The Ohio commission’s official estimate of all human trafficking victims in the state was just over 1,000, although Barrows said a “gut feeling” is that the number could be at least two times larger. Indicators of a possible victim include someone under control of another, physically and/or psychologically; inconsistences in what is being told to care givers when a potential victim arrives at an emergency department; and physical signs of trauma, Barrows said. Physical indicators could include bruises, broken teeth, malnutrition, poor hygiene and evidence of neglected health. If someone is controlling the victim, the person controlling likely will answer questions and handle the victim’s identification documents. Body language is important. “They can’t do it (communicate) verbally. They will do it nonverbally,” Barrows said of victims. He reminded health care professionals that they are mandated NEW BREMEN — The Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce has announced that tickets are now on sale for A Taste of Wine, a wine-tasting and silent auction fundraiser scheduled for Nov. 9 at Marley’s Downtown in Wapakoneta. Emmy’s Bridal will display for-

to report suspected trafficking, but not mandated to intervene. Whether to intervene, when and how are among policy decisions that need to be addressed in a protocol for the hospital or other site where someone comes for treatment, Barrows said. Establishing protocols is in the early stages in Ohio, he said. Protocols must cover a wide range of issues including local law enforcement contacts and trained professionals such as social workers to interview potential victims. Barrows said it is important to get as much identifying information as possible to help law enforcement in any investigation. A vehicle license plate should be provided, if possible, he said. Although some treatment facilities exist to help human trafficking victims, there remains a “huge” service gap for these victims, Barrows said. He said it will take time to increase human trafficking awareness. While the ’70s was the decade of child-abuse awareness and domestic violence in the ’80s, “this is the decade for human trafficking. It takes time and we are hoping to see more money,” Barrows said. For information on Barrows and human trafficking, visit www.

Pumpkin People attract hundreds of voters NEW BREMEN — With creativity and participation at an all-time high, it’s no surprise that hundreds of votes were cast in the New Bremen Pumpkin People contest again this year, according to Scott Frey, executive director of the Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce. Fourteen businesses participated in the 5th annual contest put on by the New Bremen Community Improvement

Corporation and the Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce. “We continue to see lots of traffic in town as people visit the businesses where the Pumpkin People are hanging out,” Frey said. “This is a fun way to showcase our local businesses and get ready for Pumpkinfest.” The top three vote getting Pumpkin People were: third, “One in a Minion,” Lock One Theater, 68 votes; second, Batman

for Raygen Strong, The Hair Loft, 72 votes; and first, “D.Q. Builder,” New Bremen Dairy Queen, 104 votes. Three random votes were drawn, and the voters will be awarded chamber gift certificates for participating. The Chamber of Commerce provided the prizes to support the contest, including a $100 discount on chamber membership for the winning business. “We’re thrilled to announce that the New

Bremen Dairy Queen has decided to donate their $100 prize to the Raygen Strong project,” Frey said. “They are really excited to help support Raygen Kramer. Raygen was diagnosed with cancer in May, and is the young daughter of a New Bremen High School teacher.” Frey noted that The Hair Loft joined in the Pumpkin People contest with the goal of donating their winnings to Kramer.

Veterans From page 1 to accept counseling about managing money. “We ask them to take actions to free up some money to pay their own bills,” Ball said. For instance, someone who has cable, Internet and mutliple cell phones in the family but needs help to pay the rent will be asked to think about his spending priorities. Sometimes requests are denied. Reasons vary from the applicant’s having already received aid at the

limit permitted to the request’s being for something that can’t be funded. The commission then works with other area social service agencies to make referrals that might help the applicant meet his need. “Part of the application process allows us to screen eligible veterans that may qualify for higher benefits,” Ball said. Both Ball and Skaggs said that the number of requests has sub-


stantially decreased in the last year or so. “We’re just not seeing the demand we expect should be out there,” Ball said. “The need is not as great,” echoed Skaggs. “We want everybody to be up and on their feet. But we want people to know, that, hey, if you need anything, we’re here. If they’re in a financial emergency, give us a call — even if they just want to know more about the program.”

From page 1 week, Congress passed and Obama signed a bill allowing the military to be paid during the federal closure. However, the death benefit payments were not covered by that legislation. Carney said the Pentagon told lawmakers before the shutdown that the death benefit payments were not covered by the bill and would be cut off during a shutdown. However, he repeatedly refused to say when the president was first told that death benefits would not be paid.

Amid the controversy, Hagel made a rare trip Wednesday to Dover Air Force Base for the arrival of remains of four soldiers killed in Afghanistan. The remains of every U.S. military member killed overseas are flown to Dover for processing. Family members attend the arrival, but the secretary of defense usually does not. Among the soldiers whose remains were brought to Dover on Wednesday was Pfc. Cody J. Patterson, 24, of Philomath, Ore.

Patterson’s family allowed members of the media to witness the return of his remains, but an Army liaison officer who works with mortuary officials at Dover said the family did not want to talk to reporters. The other soldiers whose remains were returned were 1st Lt. Jennifer M. Moreno, 25, of San Diego, Calif.; Sgt. Patrick C. Hawkins, 25, of Carlisle, Pa.; and Sgt. Joseph M. Peters, 24, of Springfield, Mo. In a statement Tuesday, U.S. Army Special Operations

Command said Hawkins and Patterson were members of the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, and Peters was a special agent assigned to the 286th Military Police Detachment. Hagel put his hand over his heart as whitegloved soldiers carried the flag-draped case carrying Patterson’s remains from a C-17 cargo plane to a white panel truck for transfer to the Dover mortuary. ———

Lasting relationships are built on respect I really wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel comfortDR. WALLACE: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 15 and allowed to date for the very able following her tips, but my first time. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a fairly popular sister has had a lot of dates and she is always in demand. girl at my school and sevYour advice, please. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; eral guys want to go out Nameless, St. John, Ind. with me. My older sister NAMELESS: Your sisis 17 and has been datter has her dating rouing a lot for the past two tine and it appears to years. She has been givbe effective for her, but ing me pointers on how even if you felt comfortto get guys to want to able following her tips, keep going out with me. Of course, that should â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tween 12 I would advise you not & 20 to. Go out with a guy only happen if I want to keep dating the guy. Her Dr. Robert because you think you Wallace would enjoy his compatwo hot tips are: ny, and if you do, con1. Play hard to get. tinue the relationship. Never say yes when a guy asks you out. Always say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll think Lasting relationships are built on mutual respect and not on about it.â&#x20AC;? 2. If you do go out with him, playing hard to get or coming be aloof and act like you are a on as Her Royal Highness. DR. WALLACE: A girl queen and he is your servant.

I know loaned her dad $350 because he had a financial problem. Three months later he repaid the money he had borrowed, but the girl was miffed that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add a little interest, even though the money had been hidden in her closet and was not earning a penny where it was. I think her attitude was outrageous and that she had a lot of nerve expecting to be paid interest from a family member. After all, raising a child is expensive, and she is 14, so it has already cost her parents a fortune to give her a very comfortable life. When she gave her dad the money she should have told him it was a privilege to help the family out and that it did not have to be repaid. Maybe

the ungrateful girl would appreciate the wonderful life her parents have given her if they suddenly started charging her a monthly fee for room and board. She is a very spoiled brat and takes everything for granted. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nameless, Portland, Maine. NAMELESS: I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overreacting. This was a typical event between a parent and child with some emotional reactions. Children really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate how much their parents have done for them until they have children of their own, and parents really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect them to. They provide for their children out of love. The girl had saved the money from her babysitting job and was going to use it to help

pay her college expenses. The father borrowed the money and it was up to him to repay it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he did. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;interestâ&#x20AC;? is really a nonissue. Even if she had put the cash in a bank account she would have only accumulated a few dollars in interest. The real issue here was gratitude, not interest. The father would have been wiser to have taken his daughter out for lunch as a way of thanking her. Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers. Although he is unable to reply to all of them individually, he will answer as many as possible in this column.
