Property owners whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve failed to cut weeds or remove junk will find charges for that work on their real estate tax bills as a result of action taken by Sidney City Council Monday night. Council adopted an ordinance assessing the costs. Forty-six properties will be assessed a total of $7,338.24 for weed cutting and another 17 properties will be assessed $3,253.26 for junk removal. The city had previously notified the owners that their properties were not in com-

pliance with the city code. When the owners failed to take action, the city paid to have the work done. The owners were charged for the cost of the work, plus fees. City officials said that of the 46 properties to be assessed for weed cutting, 17 are delinquent on their real estate taxes. Among the 17 properties to be assessed for junk removal, two are delinquent. The assessment figures in 2012 were $8,851.41 for weed cutting and $1,453.92 for junk removal. The city has received about $4,200 of those bills from the Shelby County Auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. The auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

staff told the city that all delinquent properties have been charged a penalty, and interest will be accruing on the assessment until paid. Councilman Tom Miller observed that the city is â&#x20AC;&#x153;not doing too wellâ&#x20AC;? in getting payment from delinquent property owners. Finance Officer Ginger Adams said the bill â&#x20AC;&#x153;continues to growâ&#x20AC;? for some properties. She said the assessments stay with the properties. In other business, council held a public hearing and introduced an ordinance that would rezone 1390 Fourth Ave., from I-1, light industrial, to B-2,

Teen pleads guilty in killings of 2 brothers JOHN SEEWER

14-year-old Blaine Romes in the head while he was sleeping on a couch and then shot Blake Romes, 17, in his bedroom, Schroeder said. Fay fired the first shot when he heard a train coming down a track directly behind the trailer, Schroeder said. “He waited for the whistle blow,” he said, apparently to mask the sound of the gunshot. Fay didn’t make a statement during the brief hearing. He had been scheduled to go on trial in November. Schroeder said he will recommend consecutive life sentences with the chance of parole after he serves 60 years in prison. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped four other charges. Fay could be sentenced to a maximum of life in prison with no parole. Fay had only moved into the trailer just a few

TOLEDO (AP) — An 18-year-old admitted Tuesday that he killed two teenage brothers inside a mobile home they shared with their mothers in northwest Ohio after an argument. Michael Fay pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated murder in a Putnam County court and faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced next month. Fay and the brothers had gotten into an argument and he left the trailer just after midnight May 9, stopping at a fastfood restaurant and then at a storage unit owned by his mother where he retrieved a gun, said Todd Schroeder, an assistant county prosecutor. Both mothers were at work. Fay returned to the mobile home and shot

weeks before the shootings, Schroeder said. He and the brothers were named in an Amber Alert in May after the Romes’ mother discovered a gun and blood inside a trailer home where they lived. The mother frantically called 911 on May 9, telling authorities to “please hurry.” Authorities at first believed that all three teens had been kidnapped after finding a bloody trail throughout the mobile home to the back door and tire tracks leading away from the trailer.

old Brittany Stykes, a married stay-at-home mom and former Bible school teacher who was five months pregnant. Police thought they were responding to a car crash on Aug. 28 when someone saw Stykes’ yellow Jeep Wrangler off the road in a wooded area in Ripley, some 45 miles southeast of Cincinnati in southern Ohio’s Appalachian country. Instead, they found Stykes dead and Aubree bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head, still strapped in her car seat. Investigators with the Brown County sheriff ’s

office have revealed few details about their investigation, including whether they think Stykes knew her attacker. “We are making progress but it’s baby steps,” said Chief Deputy John Schadle. “We don’t have that one major break in the case that we would like to see happen, that one piece of evidence that jumps out.” Part of the problem is investigators don’t know where the shooting occurred, just where Stykes’ car ended up. They’ve combed 2 miles of road with metal detectors looking for shell cas-

ings in an effort to pinpoint the spot, without success. Schadle said the investigation remains very active. “It’s absolutely the No. 1 priority right now,” he said. “But we can hurry up and make a bad decision and mess it up, or we can take our time and do it right.” Stykes’ family is desperate for answers. “I don’t sleep at night. I cry every day and I know I will cry every day for the rest of my life,” Dodson said. “I have to know who did it and why. I have to have justice.”

Police suspend 63 officers over deadly chase JOHN SEEWER Associated Press

A review of a deadly police chase in Cleveland nearly a year ago has led to suspensions for 63 patrol officers who violated orders and department rules, the city’s police chief said Tuesday. A fleeing driver and passenger were killed when officers fired 137 shots at them in the 23-minute chase that involved five dozen cruisers and wove through residential neigh-

borhoods before ending in gunfire. Police Chief Michael McGrath said the suspensions were the result of disciplinary hearings, and violations ranged from insubordination to driving too fast during the chase. The hearings did not involve any of the officers involved in the shooting because a county grand jury is investigating possible criminal wrongdoing among the 13 officers who fired their weapons. No weapon or shell casings

were found in the fleeing car. An initial review of the chase found 75 patrol officers violated orders, but the disciplinary hearings reduced that number to 64 officers. All but one received a suspension, with the longest being 10 days, McGrath said. None of the violations was so serious it warranted termination. Some of the officers received a written warning. Police previously announced punishments for 12 supervisors stemming from the chase. One sergeant was fired. A captain and lieutenant were demoted, and nine sergeants were suspended. The nighttime chase began last November when an officer thought he heard a gunshot from a

car speeding by the police station in downtown Cleveland. A parking lot attendant thought it might have been a car backfire, a theory endorsed by the driver’s family. The officer jumped into his patrol car and radioed for help. The chase went through neighborhoods, onto Interstate 90, and eventually ended in East Cleveland. Driver Timothy Russell, 43, was shot 23 times and passenger Malissa Williams, 30, was shot 24 times. Police say they don’t know why Russell didn’t stop. He had a criminal record including convictions for receiving stolen property and robbery. Williams had convictions for drug-related charges and attempted abduction.

Sentencing delayed for DUI video confessor COLUMBUS (AP) — Sentencing has been continued for a man who confessed in an online video to causing a fatal

wrong-way crash after a night of drinking. The Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office says more time is needed as both prosecutors and defense attorneys submit additional information ahead of the sentencing of Matthew Cordle. Sentencing before Franklin County Judge David Fais (fys) has been moved from Wednesday to Oct. 23. The 22-year-old Cordle faces two to 8 ½ years in prison, a $15,000 fine and loss of driving privileges for life. Cordle pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in the June crash that killed Vincent Canzani of suburban Columbus. Cordle’s online confession has been viewed more than 2.2 million times.

World/Nation Today in History The Associated Press

Today is Wednesday, Oct. 16, the 289th day of 2013. There are 76 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 16, 1962, President John F. Kennedy was informed by national security adviser McGeorge Bundy that reconnaissance photographs had revealed the presence of missile bases in Cuba. On this date: In 1793, during the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette, the queen of France, was beheaded. In 1859, radical abolitionist John Brown led a group of 21 men in a raid on Harpers Ferry in western Virginia. (Ten of Brown’s men were killed and five escaped. Brown and six followers ended up being captured; all were executed.) In 1901, Booker T. Washington dined at the White House as the guest of President Theodore Roosevelt, whose invitation to the black educator sparked controversy. In 1912, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series, defeating the New York Giants in Game 8, 3-2 (Game 2 had ended in a tie on account of darkness). In 1942, the ballet “Rodeo,” with music by Aaron Copland and choreography by Agnes de Mille, premiered at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House. In 1943, Chicago Mayor Edward J. Kelly officially opened the city’s new subway system during a ceremony at the State and Madison street station. In 1952, the Charles Chaplin film “Limelight” premiered in London. In 1962, the New York Yankees won the World Series, defeating the San Francisco Giants in Game 7 at Candlestick Park, 1-0. In 1972, a twin-engine plane carrying U.S. House Majority Leader Hale Boggs, D-La., and U.S. Rep. Nick Begich, D-Alaska, disappeared while flying over a remote region of Alaska; the aircraft was never found. In 1978, the College of Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church chose Cardinal Karol Wojtyla to be the new pope; he took the name John Paul II. In 1987, a 58-1/2-hour drama in Midland, Texas, ended happily as rescuers freed Jessica McClure, an 18-month-old girl trapped in an abandoned well. In 1991, a deadly shooting rampage took place in Killeen, Texas, as George Hennard opened fire at a Luby’s Cafeteria, killing 23 people before taking his own life. Ten years ago: The U.N. Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution aimed at attracting more troops and money to help stabilize Iraq and speed its independence. Three American soldiers were killed during a clash at a Shiite Muslim cleric’s headquarters in Karbala. Pope John Paul II celebrated his 25 years as pontiff before a huge crowd in St. Peter’s Square.

Dubai censors ‘Escape Plan’ DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Moviegoers in the United Arab Emirates saw the screen turn black as frazzled officials broke up the screening of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest action flick after a character was heard cursing in Arabic in the movie. The National, a statebacked newspaper, reported Monday that the Dubai Media Council asked theaters in the Emirates to halt the screening of the “Escape Plan.” Authorities quickly censored the profane words out of the film, and the revised version was back in theaters within hours. The movie features Stallone and Schwarzenegger trying to escape from a futuristic, fortified prison. Before movies debut in local theaters, Arab governments around the region censor films for content, often cutting out sexual scenes and kissing, as well as comments deemed blasphemous.

Libyan pleads not guilty to terrorism charges Larry Neumeister and Tom Hays Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — An alleged al-Qaida member who was snatched off the streets in Libya and interrogated for a week aboard an American warship pleaded not guilty Tuesday in a deadly 1998 bombing — a case that has renewed the debate over how quickly terror suspects should be turned over to the U.S. courts. Despite calls from Republicans in Congress to send him to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite interrogation, Abu Anas al-Libi became the latest alleged terrorist to face civilian prosecution in federal court in Manhattan, the scene of several such convictions. Al-Libi, wearing a thick gray beard, looked frail and moved slowly as he was led into the heavily guarded courtroom in handcuffs. An attorney said he had come to court from a New York hospital, where he was treated for three days for hepatitis C and swollen limbs. The 49-year-old al-Libi was captured by American commandos during an Oct. 5 military raid in Libya and questioned for a week aboard the USS San Antonio.

He was indicted more than a decade ago in the twin 1998 bombings at the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people, including a dozen Americans. If convicted, he could get life behind bars. Known as one of al-Qaida’s early computer experts, al-Libi is accused of helping plan and conduct surveillance for the attacks. He is believed to have used an early-generation Apple computer to assemble surveillance photographs. The defendant kept his hands folded on his lap as the judge read the charges in a courtroom secured by about a dozen deputy U.S. marshals. The judge ordered him detained after a federal prosecutor called him a “clear danger.” Al-Libi’s family and former associates have denied he was ever a member of al-Qaida. “The presumption of innocence is not a small technicality here,” his court-appointed attorney, David Patton, said in email sent after the hearing. In a 150-page indictment, al-Libi “is mentioned in a mere three paragraphs relating to conduct in 1993 and 1994 and nothing since. … There is no allegation that he had any connection to al-Qaida after 1994, and he is eager to move forward with the

legal process in this case.” Al-Libi’s lawyer also said the defendant goes by the name Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai. The prosecution in the United States is in keeping with a policy of bringing suspected alQaida sympathizers and operatives to civilian courts rather than military tribunals. The civilian court prosecutions have continued before and after the Obama administration was forced to reverse its plans to prosecute 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and several others in federal court in Manhattan. New York Republican Rep. Peter King, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday that it was a mistake to stop questioning alLibi while he was in military custody. “A lot of people say the federal courts can get these convictions,” King said. “It’s not the convictions I’m really worried about. The real issue is the intelligence. Once he gets a lawyer, he holds the cards.” He added: “Put it this way: Now he decides whether he will talk.” Other Republicans said alLibi didn’t face sufficient questioning aboard the Navy warship and want him sent to the

U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay. Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, the Armed Services Committee’s top Republican, said providing al-Libi the same rights as Americans is “despicable” and gathering intelligence from him will be harder now. Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, House Judiciary Committee chairman, said the case “begs the question whether rushing foreign terrorists into U.S. courts is a strategy that is in the best interests of the United States.” Before the Sept. 11 attacks, several other major terrorism trials were held in New York, including those of blind Egyptian sheik Omar AbdelRahman and Ramzi Yousef, who was the architect of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Just weeks before 9/11, four men were convicted in the embassy bombings and were sentenced to life in prison, two of them after a jury rejected the death penalty. ——— Associated Press writers Frank Eltman on Long Island and Eileen Sullivan in Washington contributed to this report.

Obama admin. projected strong health plan signups John Miller and Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration’s internal projections called for strong enrollment in the states in the first year of new health insurance markets, according to unpublished estimates obtained by The Associated Press. Whether those expectations will bear out is unclear. Technology glitches have frustrated many consumers trying to sign up for coverage online, and efforts to upgrade and repair are ongoing. But the estimates, obtained through a public records request, may be the closest thing to a yardstick for measuring the performance of President Barack Obama’s health care law across the states. The enrollment breakdown by states was included in a draft of an administration report on insurance premiums in the new markets, but it was omitted from a subsequent version that was released to the public last month by the Department of Health and Human Services. Leading up to the opening of insurance markets Oct. 1, the White House generally deflected questions about its own expectations of how consumers would respond. Officials instead cited a congressional estimate that 7 million people would gain coverage in the first year through the markets, which offer subsidized private insurance to people who don’t have a job-based health plan. The draft, dated Sept. 20, broke down the figure of 7 million among states. It estimated the expected enrollment in California, for example, at 1. 3 million people in 2014. The estimate for Texas was 629,000 and for Florida, 477,000. The report estimated 340,000 people would enroll in Washington state, and 218,000 in New York. The final report, released Sept. 25, omitted the enrollment estimates, but it was identical in most other respects. Asked why the estimates were missing from the final report, HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters said in a statement: “We are focused on reaching as many people as possible about their options. There are many estimates of how many people will enroll in year one.” Some states have released their own estimates, she added, and other states are changing theirs based on experience.

President Barack Obama awards the Medal of Honor to former Army Capt. William D. Swenson of Seattle, Wash., during a ceremony in the East Room at the White House in Washington, Tuesday. Swenson was being awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions in a lengthy battle against Taliban insurgents in the Ganjgal valley near the Pakistan border on Sept. 8, 2009, which claimed the lives of five Americans, 10 Afghan army troops and an interpreter.

Afghan war vet receives Medal of Honor

Darlene Superville Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — A former Army captain whose heroic actions in a deadly Afghan battle were captured on video received the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor, from President Barack Obama at the White House Tuesday. Obama placed the award around the neck of William D. Swenson for his actions in a lengthy battle against the Taliban in the Ganjgal valley near the Pakistan border four years ago, which claimed the lives of five Americans, 10 Afghan army troops and an interpreter. Obama noted that although the honor has been bestowed nearly 3,500 times in U.S. history, never before had Americans been able to witness of a small part of the bravery that led to it. The video captured from cameras mounted on the helmets of evacuation helicopter pilots showed Swenson delivering a severely wounded soldier to the helicopter and placing a kiss

on his head as he placed him inside. Swenson, 34, retired from the military in February 2011 and has been living in Seattle. But two U.S. officials told The Associated Press that Swenson has asked to return to active duty, and the Army is working to allow it. Swenson was serving as a trainer and mentor embedded with the Afghan National Security Forces in Kunar Province in eastern Afghanistan when they came under fire near dawn on Sept. 8, 2009. Obama recounted how Swenson dodged enemy fire, without a helmet, and risked his life to recover bodies and help save fellow troops. “Will Swenson was there for his brothers,” Obama said. The president called Swenson a “pretty low key guy,” who would rather be on a Pacific Northwest mountain trail surrounded by cedar trees instead of in front of the cameras at the White House. But Obama, perhaps thinking of the current partisan budget dispute gripping Washington, said, “I think our nation needs this ceremony today.”

Iran presents nuclear proposals at Geneva talks

George Jahn ans John Heilprin Associated Press

GENEVA (AP) — With PowerPoint slides and feel-good phrases, Iranian negotiators presented world powers on Tuesday with what they said was a plan to break a decade of deadlock over Tehran’s nuclear program, declaring the time had come to end the country’s “walk in the dark” of international isolation and crippling sanctions. Neither Iran nor the six nations negotiating with it revealed details of the proposal. But their guarded comments indicated some progress had been made and a rare private meeting between Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi and the chief U.S. negotiator, Wendy Sherman, suggested a better tone compared to previous encounters. Speaking in English, Iranian Foreign Minister

Mohammad Javad Zarif outlined the proposal, entitled “An End to the Unnecessary Crisis and a Beginning for Fresh Horizons.” A member of one of the delegations meeting with Iran told The Associated Press the plan offered reductions in both the levels of uranium enrichment being conducted by Iran and the number of centrifuges doing the enrichment — a key demand of the six powers. He demanded anonymity because he was not authorized to divulge details. Iran’s state TV, which closely reflects government views, said Tehran offered to discuss uranium enrichment levels. The report also said Iran proposed adopting the additional protocols of the U.N.’s nuclear treaty — effectively opening its nuclear facilities to wider inspection and monitoring — if the West rec-

ognizes Iran’s right to enrich uranium. The Iranian presentation was followed in the afternoon by what European Union spokesman Michael Mann said were very detailed technical talks “for the first time.” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki repeated the same phrase, saying that while it wasn’t “a breakthrough at this stage … it certainly is positive that there was enough information to have technical discussions.” “They’ve come forward with something this morning, but we need to work harder on it to get down to the nitty gritty,” Mann told reporters. Both he and Psaki said the talks would continue Wednesday. Araghchi was also upbeat, describing the afternoon session as “positive and constructive,” on the website of Iranian state television.

He said the six powers — the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — asked for details and discussed explanations offered by Iranian negotiators. Iran’s version of success is for painful international sanctions to be lifted in exchange for possible concessions it had been previously unwilling to consider, such as increased monitoring and scaling back of uranium enrichment — a potential path to nuclear arms and the centerpiece of the impasse with the West. International talks designed to reduce fears that Iran may make such arms have been stalled for most of their 10-year history, with Tehran insisting it has no interest in weapons production, while resisting both enticements and sanctions designed to force it into ending uranium enrichment and other activities that could be

used to make weapons. But the talks appear now to be driven by the new wind generated since reformist President Hassan Rouhani took office in September. Senior Iranian officials have expressed readiness to modify their rigid stance since then, and the Geneva talks were seen as the first real test of Tehran’s willingness to move from soothing words to concrete and verifiable actions. At the end of the hour-long PowerPoint presentation, Araghchi described his country’s proposal as a potential breakthrough. Alluding to the international pressure over Iran’s nuclear program that has driven the country into nearpariah status, he said: “We no longer want to walk in the dark and uncertainty and have doubts about the future.”

ental injuries, especially to the upper central incisors, are extremely common in both young children and in athletes, both adolescent and adult. Most of the time, the teeth get chipped or cracked and can be repaired by routine dental techniques like fillings or crowns. Unfortunately, if a properly fitted mouthguard is not worn, more severe injuries can occur like bone fracture and tooth avulsion, where the tooth gets knocked out of the mouth completely.

Students help with cancer PIQUA — As part of a community-teaching project, nursing students at Edison Community College are helping to raise awareness of the upcoming Cancer Prevention Study–3 (CPS-3). To help support this initiative, students held a kick-off event to inform the community about what the enrollment event aims to do. The kick-off was at the Piqua campus on Oct. 3 and prizes were given to participants who were able to throw a football 10 yards into a target. “It’s interesting to learn about all of the positive links that have been identified to cause cancer,” said Katie Niswonger, a nursing student at Edison. “The enroll-

ment event is important for many reasons, one being patient education. It will help hospitals and patients recognize what’s causing cancer and, ultimately, teach them how to prevent the disease in the future.” To better understand ways to prevent cancer, the American Cancer Society is recruiting 300,000 men and women across the U.S. and Puerto Rico for a landmark new research study. Enrollment is being made possible in the Miami Valley throughout the month of October. Individuals may choose to participate if they are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing follow-up sur-

Edison Community College will host an enrollment event on Oct. 22 from 3 to 7 the North Hall Pavilion at the Piqua campus. To enroll or learn more about the study, visit or call 888-604-5888. Other nursing students who participated in the communityteaching project were Tabitha Brewer, Jessica Kennedy, Kayla Mason, and Cary Young.

The Sidney-Shelby County Branch American Association of University Women is announcing the panelists who will comment on the film “The Invisible War” after its screening Thursday at 7 p.m. in Edison Community C o l l e g e ’s R o b i n s o n Theater. Heading the panel will be Col. Carolyn J. Patrick, vice Patrick commander of 88th Air Base Wing WPAFB. Also in attendance from WPAFB will be First Lt. Max Shea from the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator’s Office and Daryl Mayer from Public Relations.

Other panelists will be Terry Calvert, former Navy pilot, currently full time faculty at Edison Community College; Kathy Hayes, US Army Ret., now Coordinator of Hospice and Palliative Care Program at Dayton, Veterans Administration Medical Center; and Julianna Thompson, former service member, USAF. The film addresses the current military response to claims of sexual assault and/or rape in the military. Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served. Edison Community College and AAUW are cosponsors of this event.

UVMC adding robot-assisted surgery TROY — Upper Valley Medical Center (UVMC) will introduce robot-assisted surgery to the Miami County area with the addition of a da Vinci Si surgical system to the UVMC surgery department in November. The new system provides sophisticated robotic technology and offers a minimally invasive option for certain types of surgery. It will be the only robotic surgery unit between Dayton and Lima. “This technologic investment demonstrates UVMC’s commitment to provide our community access to advancements in minimally invasive surgery,” said

Rowan R. Nichol, M.D., chairman of the UVMC Board of Directors, and retired surgeon. “We are excited about the addition of this surgical technology,” said Tom Parker, UVMC president and CEO. “Our partner hospitals in Premier Health have been key in assisting with this important addition, sharing their experience in robotic surgery to help make this possible.” With the new robotic system, small incisions are used to insert miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated at the system console, the surgeon views a magnified, high-

At the same time, the robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and translate the surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the system’s instruments. Among the clinical benefits are enhanced visual clarity and surgical dexterity. The da Vinci System features an enhanced vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. “This technology takes surgical capabilities to a new level,” said Dan Bailey, DPM, and UVMC chief medical officer. “Although it is

BBB features customer reviews DAYTON — This month, the Better Business Bureau has started to allow people to post and read customer reviews of businesses on its website, Customer reviews offer people a chance to post comments — positive or negative — that will aid others in the search for a business they can trust. This new feature makes BBB Business Reviews even more comprehensive, giving people one more reason to turn to their BBB first as they’re doing business in the Miami Valley. John North, president and CEO of the BBB serving Dayton and the Miami Valley, says, “BBB research has shown people want BBB Business Reviews to contain more information, including positive information about businesses. This new feature on BBB

Business Reviews elevates the content on Business Reviews to the next level. It meets people’s needs to want to know more about the organizations they’re considering doing business with. And, it gives people a chance to say nice things about businesses. We expect customer reviews to go over big with consumers and businesses.” People who want to post a review may visit the company’s BBB Business Review at and click on “Submit a Customer Review.” The submission form includes stepby-step instructions in creating the review. The customer review includes the written review of the business, a rating of the overall experience with the business in question (on a scale of 0-10), and asks the reviewers if they would recommend the business.

Unlike many other customer review sites, businesses are alerted by e-mail when a customer review is posted and have 24 hours to respond to negative customer reviews prior to the review being made visible in the company’s BBB Business Review. The BBB has procedures in place to exclude posts from people who aren’t customers of the company or who appear to be posting bogus positive reports. It also reserves the right not to post reviews that aren’t marketplace-related, involve inappropriate language, contain personal information that cannot be edited without changing the substance of the review or are intelligible. But the overwhelming majority of reviews will be posted without editing within 24 hours of being submitted on the BBB Web site.

Vote on House GOP budget plan delayed DAVID ESPO

AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON (AP) — Time growing desperately short, House Republican efforts to pass legislation averting a Treasury default and ending a partial government shutdown collapsed Tuesday night, and one of the country’s top ratings firms warned of a possible downgrade in the nation’s creditworthiness. The decision by Speaker John Boehner and the GOP leadership to pull a bill they had unveiled ear-

lier in the day appeared to mark the end of what amounted to a daylong detour from separate negotiations in the Senate that had appeared on the verge of bearing fruit. There was no immediate reaction from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid or the Republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, on next steps as divided government sought to extricate itself from yet another crisis. As the day of secret meetings and frenzied maneuvering unfolded in all corners of the Capitol,

Municipal Court In Sidney Municipal Court Friday, Judge Duane Goettemoeller fined Brittany L. Tangeman, 21, 319 1/2 S. Wilkinson Ave., $150 and $234 costs and sentenced her to 90 days in jail for theft. She also was fined $75 and $211 costs for driving under suspension. Charges of obstructing official business and driving under suspension were dismissed. • Brandon D. Johnson, 20, 507 Johnston Drive, was fined $150 and $128 costs and sentenced to 20 days in jail for theft.

Pomeroy Ave., was fined $600 and $130.50 costs, sentenced to 100 days in jail (two days credit), and received a oneyear license suspension for driving under the influence. Niswonger also was fined $75 for speeding. Dismissed were charges of driving under suspension, driving on the right side of the roadway, and a seat belt violation. • Paul C. Butler, 24, 301 W.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., stood on the Senate floor at midafternoon and declared, “We are 33 hours away from becoming a deadbeat nation, not paying its bills to its own people and other creditors.” In New York, the Fitch rating agency warned that it was reviewing the government’s AAA credit rating for a possible downgrade, though no action was near. Fitch, one of the three leading U.S. creditratings agencies, said that “the political brinkmanship and reduced

financing flexibility could increase the risk of a U.S. default.” On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 133 points after rising a day earlier when optimism spread that a deal might be at hand. Under the revised bill prepared by House Republicans, the Treasury would be permitted to borrow normally until Feb. 7 and the government reopened with sufficient funds to carry it to Dec. 15. Additionally, members of Congress, the presi-

dent, vice president and thousands of aides would no longer be eligible to receive employer health care contributions from the government that employs them. Before the bill seemed to lose steam later in the day, Michael Steel, a spokesman for Speaker John Boehner said in a statement, “The House will vote tonight to reopen the government and avoid default.” He said the legislation would “end Obamacare subsidies for elected officials and staff

in Washington, D.C., and pressure Senate Democrats to accept more sensible” time frames for reopening the government and renewing Treasury’s borrowing authority. Gone from the measure was a pair of provisions that had drawn objections, one a plan to delay a medical device tax created under the new health care law known as Obamacare. The other would have imposed tougher income verification standards on individuals and families seeking subsidies for care under the law.

the doctor. What is your opinion? — I.W. ANSWER: This is actually three questions in one, and none of them is easy. How long do you “need” to continue Pap smears and mammograms, and do you need to keep seeing your gynecologist? The Pap smear question actually is the easiest, since there is very good evidence that a woman who has had normal Pap smears regularly until age 65 is very unlikely to get cervical cancer. This does not apply to anyone with a history of cancer. When to stop mammograms is controversial. I feel that they can continue in healthy women indefinitely, but especially in the presence of some other serious disease, a woman over 75 could choose to stop. I still recommend a regular visit with the gynecologist. Even if a mammogram or Pap smear isn’t being done, the gynecologist can discuss other concerns and do an exam.

ROACH: I have read several articles regarding the use of medicines to treat erectile dysfunction, but no information about the effectiveness of vacuum devices. Please comment. — D.G. ANSWER: You are right; physicians tend to be very knowledgeable about medications like Viagra or Levitra but not so much when it comes to nonpharmacologic treatments. However, medicines don’t work for everybody, and they aren’t safe for some people, like men on nitroglycerine or who have had adverse reactions. There are several options in that case, including a vacuum pump.

100 years Oct. 16, 1913 Meeting in a special session at noon today, city council instructed the solicitor to notify the Big Four railroad, in replacing the watchman’s house wrecked in a train accident yesterday, to locate the new house on the east side of the street. The structure had previously been located on the west side of the street on city property. The special meeting was called so that action could be taken before the railroad started work on restoring the building at its old location. ––––– The village of Botkins had its light troubles last night, the town being plunged into darkness when the 33,000 volt side of a temporary transformer installed by the Western Ohio on a side track was grounded . Fuses were blown out as fast as they were put in, accompanied by brilliant electric displays. 75 years Oct. 16, 1938 Members of the Sidney Theater Guild presented the program for the opening meeting of the New Bremen Federation of Women’s clubs held last evening in that community. “Order Please” was the play presented for the group with Miss Marjorie Potter, Charles Williams, and Laurin Swisher, as president of the guild, spoke briefly of its origin and growth over the past several years. ––––– One of the outstanding race horses on Ohio tracks this season is the sorrel mare, “Maxine”, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Chester Faulder of Shelby county. Maxine starting racing in May and has won ten of the 13 races in which she took part. In the other three she received a part of the purse. She has won more races than any other horse racing in Ohio and came home with more money to her credit

They brought back the Lucilla Poston trophy given in the district for the best club attendance of the last year. This makes the eight time it has come to Sidney’s Altrusa group for that distinction, say the delegates. Sidney Altrusans took the cup to the conference after having it the past year for the best 1962 performance. 25 years Oct. 16, 1988 ANNA — At the request of the Anna Board of Education, the Anna Village Council is considering changing the name of Second Street in front of the school to McRill Way in honor of former superintendent Arlen McRill. If the name is changed, the school would then change its address and letterheads to No. 1 McRill Way, Anna, Ohio. Mayor Shue noted, “I think it’s a wonderful gesture on the part of the school board.

Sidney’s Jenna Foster-Wheeler kicks the ball away from Brenna Powers of Stebbins in Division I Sectional Tournament play at Sidney Monday night.

Sidney dominates, but settles for 1-0 OT win The Sidney girls had one of those nights where they totally dominated the action, but couldn’t find the net. Fortunately for the Lady Jackets, visiting Stebbins didn’t even get a shot off the entire game, so it was just a matter of time before Sidney won it. And it happened in overtime when Kaitlyn Davis’ free kick was knocked in by Morgan Knasel, ending the game at 1-0 in Division I Sectional Tournament

play Monday night at the high school. The Lady Jackets, the No. 7 seed, are now 8-4-5 on the season and advance to the semifinals on Thursday against Tecumseh, the No. 13 seed. The game will again be played at home. Sidney had 43 shots in Monday’s game compared to none for Stebbins, the entire game being played in the Lady Jackets’ end of the field.

“I give their goalie a lot of gredit,” said Sidney coach Stacey Goffena. “She had a really great game. We made some decent runs, and it wasn’t anything we were doing tactically. We just couldn’t find the net.” • Botkins defeated Anna 2-0 in Division III sectional play Monday. No details of the game were available. Botkins takes on No. 3 seed Miami East Thursday at East.

Red Sox take 2-1 lead with 1-0 win DETROIT (AP) — John Lackey edged Justin Verlander in the latest duel of these pitching-rich playoffs, and Boston’s bullpen shut down Detroit’s big boppers with the game on the line to lift the Red Sox over the Tigers 1-0 Tuesday for a 2-1 lead in the AL championship series. Mike Napoli homered off Verlander in the seventh inning, and Detroit’s best chance to rally fell short in the eighth when Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder struck out with runners at the corners. Despite three straight gems by their starters, the Tigers suddenly trail in a best-of-seven series they seemed to have complete control of only two days ago. Game 4 is Wednesday night at Comerica Park, with Jake Peavy scheduled to start for the Red Sox against Doug Fister. Lackey allowed four hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out eight without

a walk in a game that was delayed 17 minutes in the second inning because lights on the stadium towers went out. It was the second 1-0 game in this matchup between the highest-scoring teams in the majors. That’s been the theme throughout these playoffs, which have included four 1-0 scores and seven shutouts in the first 26 games. After rallying from a five-run deficit to even the series in Game 2, Boston came away with a win in Detroit against one of the game’s best pitchers. The Tigers had a chance for their own comeback in the eighth when Austin Jackson drew a one-out walk and Torii Hunter followed with a single. But Cabrera, who failed to reach base for the first time in 32 postseason games for the Tigers, never looked comfortable against Junichi Tazawa, swinging and missing at the first two offerings and eventually chasing an outside pitch for strike three.

Fielder was even more overmatched against Koji Uehara, striking out on three pitches. Uehara also pitched the ninth for a save, ensuring that Lackey’s fine performance wouldn’t go to waste. Lackey pitched poorly his first two seasons in Boston after signing an $82.5 million, five-year contract in December 2009. Then he missed all of 2012 following elbow ligament-replacement surgery. He’s been better this season, and he kept the Tigers off balance Tuesday by effectively changing speeds. Napoli’s first at-bat in the majors was against Verlander on May 4, 2006, at Detroit’s Comerica Photos by Jason Alig | SDN Photos Park. He homered then, Members of the Fort Loramie 7th grade volleyball team celebrate after they defeated Anna in a close too.

Sidney Daily News, Wednesday, October 16, 2013














For Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Think before you speak today, because your first impulse is to shoot from the hip. You don't want to blurt something out and later regret it, do you? Easy does it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is definitely a restless day for you. Something going on behind the scenes might make you agitated or anxious for some reason. Try to chill out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might meet a real character today. However, what is more likely is that a female acquaintance you know will do or say something that shocks you. ("Whaaat?") CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be diplomatic when talking to authority figures today, because someone might impulsively say something that is regrettable. If you feel insulted or affronted, don't quit your day job. Sleep on it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel plans might be canceled or delayed today. Ditto for plans related to higher education. Everything is a crapshoot today! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Check your bank account today, because this is an unpredictable day for shared property, shared income, taxes, debt and inheritances. Something could go south in a New York minute. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Partners or close friends will surprise you today by saying or doing something unexpected. Then, possibly, a minor argument will break out. Whatever happens will be swift and then over. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Interruptions to your daily routine are likely today. At work you might suffer from computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages and canceled meetings. Just another day in paradise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Parents should be vigilant about their children today, because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Know where they are at all times. Be especially careful about fire and electrical matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your home routine will be interrupted today. Small appliances might break down; minor breakages could occur. Family arguments may break out, and unexpected company might knock at your door. (Yikes!) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone day for you, so pay attention to everything you say and do. Slow down and take it easy. Keep your eyes open. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Watch your finances today. You might find money; you might lose money. Similarly, your possessions might be stolen, lost or broken. Be vigilant! YOU BORN TODAY You can be quiet and unassuming, or a daredevil. One thing is certain: You are self-confident. You are outrageous when you become unrestrained over issues about which you are passionate. Generally, however, you are considerate and prudent -- we can take you anywhere. This year will be a social, pleasant year in which all your relationships will improve. Enjoy! Birthdate of: Rick Mercer, comedian; Erin Karpluk, actress; Sharon Leal, actress.

Tell this ment in the local newspaper boy that you want him to and felt it necessary to tell stop calling you, and that me that she is this guy’s you have no intention of former wife and that she going out with him again. If divorced him because of the that doesn’t end the pester- physical abuse she endured

while they were together. I was totally shocked by the conversation. She gave me her phone number and said that she would meet with me if I wanted such a meeting. Now I’m really confused. One minute I think that I’m going to marry the man of my dreams, and a phone call later I’m an emotional wreck. I discussed this with my mother and she said that I must talk to this girl immediately. My best girlfriend told me to forget the phone call because the exwife probably still loves the guy and can’t bring herself to realize that he is getting married. What should I do? I’m really confused. —Nameless, Newark, N.J. NAMELESS: You can’t ignore that phone call. Take your mother’s advice. Meet with the ex-wife, listen to her story and ask many questions. You’ll get a sense of whether she’s telling the truth, or just acting out of

jealousy. To the extent possible, seek out others who know her to verify her story. Has your fiance talked

about her or even told you he was previously married? If he hasn’t, that’s very suspicious. Ultimately, you

will need to ask him what’s what. Don’t rush into a wedding when serious questions remain unanswered.
