The Shelby County Jail is getting some long-overdue attention after years of problems that have plagued the facility. The repair project, which had an original price tag of $395,747, is the result of years of problems that began with what is believed to have been a design flaw in the jailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original construction. The jail was built in 1994 using a pod design. It is able to house 173 inmates, including both men and women. Shelby County Commissioner Julie Ehemann said contractors report there were design flaws, noting that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure the company

that designed it is no longer in business.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a project that the commissioners have known needed to be done for several years, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the funding,â&#x20AC;? Ehemann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to it a couple years ago.â&#x20AC;? Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (problems at the jail were) a major flaw in the construction. I thank the commissioners for repairing it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freytag and Associates of Sidney are working together with Greg Lyons, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintenance supervisor, to ?5/ <988/,/<1 n #3.8/C +36C /A= address the issues,â&#x20AC;?

He visited with the neighbors just prior to the disappearance.” James Cole does have diabetes and “heart issues,” said his son, who added that his father does not have his medication with him. “He was happy,” Cole said. “He had things planned out for this week. He left the house not expecting to be gone for days. … There’s no motive at this time as to what happened to him.” Cole said all the vehicles at the residence have been accounted for.

JACKSON CENTER — Jackson Center Village Council Monday night heard first readings of ordinances for appropriations adjustments and fire protection. Council heard the first reading of an ordinance authorizing adjustments in appropriations. The ordinance will transfer appropriations in the water operating fund and the sewer operating fund to enable the village to pay to the electric 0perating fund all electric usage fees for the water treatment and wastewater treatment plant for 2013. Council heard the first reading of an ordinance authorizing the village administrator to enter into a contract to furnish fire protection to territory outside the village limits. This is an annual agreement between the village and Stokes Township. In the Safety Committee report, Mayor Scott Klopfenstein said Fire Chief Jerry Davis reported that the Fire Department had four runs in the last month. In the Public Property Committee report, it was noted that on Oct. 28, a Public Power Presentation & Open Forum will be sponsored by AMP Inc. at the Family Life Center. This presentation is open to all residents and businesses. In his village administrator’s report, Bruce Metz reported on activities of departments: • Electric Department — helped the Street Department, trimmed trees, and checked out storm problem on West Pike Street. • Street Department — changed catch basins on Pike Street, hauled sludge, and leaf pickup. • Water/Wastewater — started fall hydrant flushing and gathered prices for Airstream water main upgrade. • Administrator — attended Emergency Management Agency Board meeting, worked on the 2014 budget, and prepared a letter to residents regarding the village issue on the ballot. Metz also discussed with council the increase in the electric operating fund budget and the continuing struggle to keep expenses down to meet the debt service ratio. Metz also talked about the FFA’s interest in farming village-owned land and the Jackson Center Rescue Squad upcoming meeting in November at which the squad will vote on whether to establish an executive advisory board.

Municipal Court In Municipal Court Thursday, Jaret W. Kinninger, 31, 18511 Herring Road, waived extradition proceedings. He was arrested on a probation violation warrant from Florida. • Linda L. Larger, 53, 155564 County Road 25A, Anna, was fined $25 and $105 costs for a display of plates/sticker violation. • Jacqueline M. Burns, 21, 315 S. Main St., Botkins, was fined $30 and $105 costs for speeding. • Christopher E. Huelskamp, 29, 5461 Johnston-Slagle Road, was fined $30 and $86 costs for a seat belt violation. • Jonathan N. Abbott, 46, 16500 SidneyPlattsville Road, was fined $30 and $86 costs for a seat belt violation.

From page 1 said. Other contractors involved are Cotterman and Co., of Minster, and Midwest Maintenance, of Piqua. The problems at the jail include dealing with structural concrete damage, which have cost an additional $16,500 over the original cost of the current restoration project, the result of two change orders including one for $10,000 and one for $6,500. Also, glass panes that need to be replaced in the indoor recreational area, which have cost an additional $7,000 and a $1,600 final change order for structural steel fencing needed in the indoor recreational area totaling $1,600, according to Ehemann. There were a total of seven change orders, Ehemann said, although she noted “we turned down a couple” since they had other options regarding some of the work. Ehemann said they had no choice but to take care of the problems at the jail. “Our maintenance individual (Lyons) said if you don’t take care of the jail” the problems would only get worse. “Water over time has seeped in,” Ehemann said, talking about the damage done because of a leaky roof that has plagued the office since it was built. Now contractors are working to repair the damage by placing a barrier that will hopefully stop the leaks and the damage. Former Shelby County Commissioner John Laws talked with the Sidney Daily News about the damage. He served as commissioner at the time the jail was finished being built, along with Richard Meeker and Tom Zimpfer. “The real problems began when we started having rain,” Laws recalled. “It leaked the first real hard storm we had. The design of the building, they could never … get the roof to stop leaking.” Laws said, “Dick (Meeker) mentioned and I think I did, too, we should get someone from Ferguson (Construction in Sidney) to look (at the roof).” He said they had John Maxson, “an excellent roofer” from Ferguson looked at the jail and reported “the design was wrong.” By that time, Laws said, “it was too late” to get the money back from Knowlton Construction of Bellefontaine, a company that Laws said has since gone out of business. “Dick and I felt the design had some bearing on it … we felt Knowlton Construction was liable,” Laws said, adding, “We would have been better off if we had a local contractor.” Ehemann said that the project, which is scheduled to be finished in November, is running on schedule. “Things are progressing well.” Ehemann said the project is being paid for from the county’s Capital Improvement Fund. “We’re using every penny we make this year for this project and probably in January of next year.” Between the jail project and the new dispatch center, Ehemann said all of the Capital Improvement funds have been expended. “A little over $1 million.” Capital Improvement funds are made possible by sales tax revenue, which is half of half percent. “This is the sort of catch-up project we told the public we were going to have to do,” Ehemann said.

Jerry Meckstroth PIQUA — Jerry Meckstroth, age 79, of Piqua, died at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, at his residence. He was born in Piqua on Oct. 23, 1933, to the late Howard R. and Arminta (Higgins) Meckstroth. On Nov. 23, 1968, in Piqua, he married Judith Johnston. She survives. Jerry is also survived by two sons and daughtersin-law, Jeffrey and Rhonda Meckstroth and James and Lisa Meckstroth, all of Piqua; one brother and sister-in-law, Alan and Louise Meckstroth, Kettering; six grandchildren, James C. (Kelli) Meckstroth, Justin (Chrissy) Meckstroth, Joshua and Kelly Meckstroth, all of

Piqua, Jason Meckstroth, Albuquerque, N.M., Kristin (Mike) Klucar, Wichita Falls, Texas, and Erica and Kyle Wilt, Troy; and six great-grandchildren. Jerry graduated from Piqua Central High School, Piqua, in 1951. He was a member of the Miami County Farm Bureau. Jerry was a farmer in Piqua for 65 years. Private services will be held at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions may be made to Piqua Ambulance Fund, American Legion Post 184, P.O. Box 720, Piqua, OH 45356. Condolences may be expressed to the family at

Funding From page 1 related to the operation of the building at the time of its acquisition. Generally, property must be owned by a government agency or a nonprofit organization. The Ohio General Assembly has not enacted a Capital Budget Bill with community projects since 2008. Funding for each nonstate-owned project in that year’s bill averaged about $800,000. The Dayton Region Priority Development and Advocacy Committee is a group of about 30 business,

6 killed, officer hurt in crash near Columbus Kantele Franko Associated Press

UPPER ARLINGTON — A police cruiser responding to a robbery report, lights flashing and siren blaring, struck a car at an intersection just northwest of Ohio’s capital early Friday, killing six members of a family and injuring an officer, officials said. Police said dash-camera video from the cruiser shows the victims’ Toyota Corolla had a red light when it reached the intersection and came to a complete stop just before the crash. The officer from the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington was responding to a reported armed robbery at a fast-food restaurant when the crash occurred around 1:30 a.m. at a large intersection with traffic lights, investigators said. The cruiser was one of an unspecified number of police

cars responding to the robbery, all with their lights on and sirens activated, said Upper Arlington police officer and spokeswoman Heather Galli. A Columbus man was driving the other car, with his wife in the front passenger seat and four daughters, including a toddler, in the back seat, said Chief Robert Oppenheimer of Perry Township police. None was wearing a seatbelt, and the youngest daughter was not in a child restraint, he said. “That car was just totaled, and they probably died instantly,” Oppenheimer said. Oppenheimer identified them as driver Eid Badi Shahad, 39; Entisar W. Hameed, 31; Shuaa Badi, 16; Amna Badi, 14; Ekbal Badi, 12; and Lina Badi, 2. Hamee and Shahad were married and the girls were their daughters, Majeda Mohammad, a case worker for Community

Refugee and Immigration Services in Columbus, said Friday. The family were refugees from Basra, Iraq, who came to the United States about three years ago, he said. Mohammad says the family had been out making visits as part of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. He said Shahad’s mother and his four sons were home at the time of the accident. The family lived in an apartment complex on the far west side of Columbus where most of their neighbors are immigrants from Somalia. A stream of visitors came by Friday to pay their respects. A service was planned at central Ohio’s largest mosque Saturday. “It’s very sad, because this man, and this family, is excellent, excellent family,” Mohammad said. She added: “He is a wonderful, wonderful man and wonderful family.”

Schools chief orders closures of 2 charters COLUMBUS (AP) — The state schools superintendent is ordering two Columbus charter schools to close and wants to question their sponsoring superintendent. State Superintendent Richard Ross said in a statement Friday that the Talented Tenth Leadership Academy for Boys and the Talented Tenth Leadership Academy for Girls were closed for health and safety reasons following several visits from state education employees. State officials say the schools were

inadequately staffed. They found reports of several significant fights. Officials also say meals weren’t served at regular times and were often bought at fast food restaurants. The school is sponsored by the North Central Ohio Educational Service Center. Ross has asked its superintendent to explain issues of poor approval and oversight. A phone message and email to the center’s superintendent after hours were not immediately returned.

Ex-civil rights leader set to begin sentence DAYTON (AP) — A former chairman of a national civil rights organization had his Ohio conviction involving theft of taxpayer money upheld and is expected to surrender to authorities next week. Ohio’s 2nd District Court of Appeals on Friday upheld the Rev. Raleigh Trammell’s (trah-MEHL) 2012 conviction on charges including grand theft, forgery and tampering with government records. Trammell’s appeal contended among other arguments that there wasn’t evidence to support the charges.

The court overruled a prosecutor’s motion that Trammell be ordered to surrender Friday to begin his 18-month sentence. A prosecutor’s spokesman says Trammell will have until early next week to surrender or face arrest. Calls to Trammell’s attorney weren’t returned Trammell formerly headed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s Dayton chapter and is a former chairman of the Atlanta-based national SCLC.

Take the Leap!

Franklin County coroner Jan Gorniak said an autopsy could be performed on Shahad as soon as Friday. She said autopsies won’t be performed on the passengers because of religious objections. A small shopping center sits on one side of the intersection, with a park and river on the other side. The intersection is frequently busy during the day, with hundreds of cars passing through it. The officer, who had been traveling alone, was being treated for a serious head injury at a hospital but was in stable condition, said Jason Pappas, head of the local police union. Upper Arlington police identified the officer as Shawn Paynter, who joined the department five years ago and had been on the overnight shift about a year. Oppenheimer said the offi-

cer was in shock after learning about the deaths, and he had not been interviewed by investigators by midday Friday. That was expected to happen later with his attorney present. Oppenheimer said a Columbus police accident investigation team pulled the dashcamera video from the cruiser. He said the footage shows the cruiser entering the intersection just as the light was turning from green to yellow. The victims’ car entered on a red light, Oppenheimer said, and then came to a complete stop in the middle of the intersection before it was hit. “One could speculate that he may have realized he ran the red light and was going to back up,” Oppenheimer said. “Or he saw the cruiser coming … and he froze. We can only speculate, because we’ll probably never know.”

Prosecutor to seek max for DUI confessor

Andrew Welsh-Huggins Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio man who confessed in a YouTube video that he killed a man while driving drunk knew he was prone to blackouts after heavy drinking but chose to drive the night of the accident anyway, a prosecutor said Friday. A maximum sentence is being sought for defendant Matthew Cordle, Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said in a court filing. O’Brien has said he believes Cordle’s confession was sincere, but in addition to asking for the maximum, he wrote about how recent convictions of drunk drivers who killed people in accidents show a pattern of tough sentences. Thirteen recent convictions for aggravated vehicular homicide in central Ohio, almost all of them involving drunken or drugged drivers, resulted in an average prison term of almost eight years, O’Brien said. Cordle, 22, of Dublin in suburban Columbus, pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide and driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in the June death of Vincent Canzani, who was from another Columbus suburb.

Cordle’s blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. Cordle made a 3 1/2-minute YouTube video that has been viewed more than 2.2 million times in which he confessed to Canzani’s death. “I killed a man,” a voice says as it opens with a blurred image of Cordle, who then describes a night of drinking that ended with the accident. The prosecutor likened Cordle’s vehicle to a 3-ton weapon and rejected Cordle’s characterization of the crash as an accident. The wreck “was the result of intentional, repeated, and deliberate decision making by Cordle to get drunk and drive that 3-ton weapon on our roadways where every man, woman and child was a target of a ticking time bomb,” O’Brien said. O’Brien also cites Cordle’s refusal to submit to a blood-alcohol test after the accident as justifying the maximum. Sentencing is scheduled for Wednesday. Cordle told his lawyers not to fight the charge against him and pleaded guilty in near record time just a few days after he was indicted. Cordle faces 8 years in prison, a $15,000 fine and the loss of driving privileges for life.

Explosion reported before fatal house fire

BRECKSVILLE (AP) — Neighbors reported hearing an explosion before a house fire that killed an 87-year-old man in northeast Ohio. Brecksville authorities said firefighters responded Thursday night to calls about a loud boom or explosion and arrived to find a house in the Cleveland suburb engulfed in flames. Authorities say firefighters pulled Ben Pfister from the burning home. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. An official with the Cuyahoga County medical examiner’s office says Pfister died of smoke inhalation. Fire and city officials say Pfister’s wife was in the home but made it out before firefighters arrived. They said she did not appear to be injured in the fire. Authorities say no adjacent properties were damaged. A Brecksville fire lieutenant says the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Teddy bear? No, yeti bear LONDON (AP) — A British scientist says he may have solved the mystery of the Abominable Snowman the elusive ape-like creature of the Himalayas. He thinks it’s a bear. DNA analysis conducted by Oxford University genetics professor Bryan Sykes suggests the creature, also known as the Yeti, is the descendant of an ancient polar bear. Sykes compared DNA from hair samples taken from two Himalayan animals — identified by local people as Yetis - to a database of animal genomes. He found they shared a genetic fingerprint with a polar bear jawbone found in the Norwegian Arctic that is at least 40,000 years old. Sykes said Thursday that the tests showed the creatures were not related to modern Himalayan bears but were direct descendants of the prehistoric animal. He said, “it may be a new species, it may be a hybrid” between polar bears and brown bears. “The next thing is go there and find one.”

New Jersey court agrees to allow same-sex marriages Monday Geoff Mulvihill Associated Press

Same-sex marriages will begin within days in New Jersey after the state’s highest court ruled unanimously Friday to uphold a lower-court order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay that was sought by Gov. Chris Christie’s administration. “The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today,” the court said in an opinion by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. “The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative.” A judge on the lower court had ruled last month that New Jersey must recognize samesex marriage and set Monday as the date to allow gay weddings. Christie, a Republican who is considered a possible 2016 presidential candidate, appealed the decision and asked for the start date to be

put on hold while the state appeals. A spokesman for Christie said that he will comply with the ruling, though he doesn’t like it. “While the governor firmly believes that this determination should be made by all

the people of the State of New Jersey, he has instructed the Department of Health to cooperate with all municipalities in effectuating the order,” spokesman Michael Drewniak said in a statement. The ruling puts New Jersey on the cusp of becoming the

14th state — and the third most populous among them — to allow same-sex marriage. The advocacy group Freedom to Marry said that as of Monday one-third of Americans will live in a place where same-sex marriage is legal. It’s being debated elsewhere, too. Oregon has begun recognizing same-sex weddings performed out of state, and it is likely that voters will get a chance next year to repeal the state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage. The legislature in Hawaii also soon could take up a bill to legalize same-sex unions, while a similar measure has passed the Illinois Senate but not the House. Lawsuits challenging gay marriage bans also are pending in several states, including Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia. New Jersey’s top court agreed last week to take up the appeal of the lower-court ruling by Judge Mary Jacobson. Oral arguments are expected Jan. 6 or 7.

Dallas police probe shooting Nomaan Merchant Associated Press

Associated Press

In this Sept. 27 file photo, the United Nations Security Council votes on a resolution that will require Syria to give up its chemical weapon, at U.N. Headquarters. Saudi Arabia is rejecting its seat on the U.N. Security Council and says the 15-member body is incapable of resolving world conflicts. The move came just hours after the kingdom was elected as one of the Council’s 10 nonpermanent members.

Saudi Arabia rejects Security Council seat Aya Batrawy Edith M. Lederer Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS — Just hours after winning a coveted place on the U.N. Security Council for the first time, Saudi Arabia did a stunning about-face Friday and rejected the seat, denouncing the body for failing to resolve world conflicts such as the Syrian civil war. The unprecedented move at the United Nations appeared largely directed at Saudi Arabia’s longtime ally, the United States, reflecting more than two years of frustration. The oil giant and the world’s superpower are at odds over a number of Mideast issues, including how Washington has handled some of the region’s crises, particularly in Egypt and Syria. It also comes as ties between the

U.S. and Iran, the Saudis’ regional foe, appear to be improving somewhat. The Saudis were displeased that the U.S. backed off threats of military strikes against Syria in response to its alleged use of chemical weapons. In Egypt, Washington has been critical of the military after it toppled President Mohammed Morsi, while Saudi Arabia has strongly backed the coup, giving billions of dollars to the new army-backed government. Saudi Arabia’s reversal surprised U.N. diplomats and officials who had just welcomed the kingdom to a twoyear term on the U.N.’s most powerful body for the first time. Britain, Pakistan and other countries said they wanted explanations, particularly as Saudi Arabia’s U.N. Ambassador Abdallah

Al-Mouallimi had told reporters following Thursday’s vote that his government took the election “very seriously” and saw it as “a reflection of a longstanding policy in support of moderation and in support of resolving disputes in peaceful means.” Al-Mouallimi’s comments stood in sharp contrast to the strident tone of Friday’s Saudi Foreign Ministry statement, which accused the Security Council of failing on multiple fronts in the Middle East — especially in ending the Syria conflict but also in failing to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and rid the region of weapons of mass destruction. “They should have thought of that before competing for the seat,” said Guatemala’s U.N. Ambassador Gert Rosenthal, noting that the Saudis were lobbying for support right up until the vote.

DALLAS — Surveillance video showing a Dallas police officer shooting a mentally ill man standing still about 20 feet away contradicts the assertion of an officer that the man threatened his safety by lunging at him with a knife. Bobby Gerald Bennett remains hospitalized after being shot in the stomach Monday. The officer who shot him, Cardan Spencer, is on indefinite administrative leave pending a criminal investigation after a neighbor released surveillance video that captured the incident. Bennett was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public servant, but Police Chief David Brown announced Friday that the charge would be dropped. Bennett’s mother, Joyce Jackson, said in an interview Friday that her 52-year-old son has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and that he was off his medication at the time of the shooting. Jackson said she was arguing with Bennett when she called the police. She was told that officers who have been trained in dealing with the mentally ill would arrive to assist her. The officers arrived outside her southeast Dallas home around noon to find Bennett sitting on a chair in the street holding a knife. At this point, accounts of the incident differ. Spencer wrote in a police report that Bennett refused to drop the knife and moved toward him and another officer “in a threatening manner.” Spencer says that’s when he fired at Bennett four times from about 20 feet away, wounding him. The video tells a different story. Although the police report says Bennett “lunged” at the officers with a knife, in the video he stands up from the chair but then doesn’t appear to move at all until the gun is fired and he crumples to the ground.

Season of uncertainty for stores Anne D’Innocenzio Associated Press

NEW YORK — Will Washington be the Grinch who stole Christmas? After weeks of bickering between Congress and the White House, President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed into law a plan that ended a partial 16-day government shutdown and suspended the nation’s debt limit until early next year. But the measure, which comes just weeks ahead of the holiday shopping season, only temporarily averts a potential default on U.S. debt that could send the nation into a recession. Retailers hope that shortterm uncertainty won’t stop Americans from spending during the busiest shopping period

of the year, but they’re fearful that it will. “I am not nervous, but I am mindful,” said Jay Stein, chairman of Stein Mart, a 300-store chain that sells home goods and clothing. “The biggest enemy of consumer confidence is uncertainty.” Retailers and industry watchers say Washington gridlock already has caused shoppers to hold back on purchases. The number of people going into stores nationwide dropped 7.5 percent for the week that ended Oct. 5 and 7.1 percent during the following week compared with a year ago, according to ShopperTrak, which measures foot traffic at 40,000 retail outlets across the country. Men’s clothier Jos. A. Bank Clothiers and furniture chain

Ethan Allen said their customers cut back in recent weeks. And auto sales, which had been strong, trailed off last week, with experts blaming Washington lawmakers. Retailers say the agreement that lawmakers approved, which funds the government until Jan. 15 and gives the Treasury the ability to borrow above its limit until Feb. 7, may not be enough to alleviate shoppers’ concerns. Robert N. Wildrick, chairman of Jos. A. Bank, which has 623 U.S. stores, said retailers can’t afford more uncertainty during the holiday shopping season. “The more this nonsense goes on …. the more scared (consumers) become,” he said. Even before the stalemate in Washington, retailers had reasons to be cautiously optimis-

tic about the holiday season, which accounts for up to 40 percent of retailers’ annual revenue. While the job and housing markets are improving, that hasn’t yet translated into sustained spending increases among shoppers. But retailers spend money on ads, order additional inventory and add sales staff during the holidays hoping shoppers will spending freely. If they don’t, stores have to discount, which eats away profits. The National Retail Federation, the nation’s largest retail group, had forecast in early October that sales would climb 3.9 percent in November and December to $602.12 billion, higher than last year’s 3.5 percent gain. But the forecast didn’t account for the prolonged shutdown.

American Red Cross offers fire safety tips for the home The biggest disaster threat to American families isn’t floods, hurricanes or tornadoes; it’s fire. The American Red Cross responds to a disaster every eight minutes and nearly all of these are home fires. The Northern Miami Valley Chapter responded to 47 single-family and apartment fires last year. Fire is everyone’s fight and the Red Cross urges people to know what steps they can take to help prevent fires. “Home fires are a common and deadly threat because they happen so quickly,” said R. Scott Miller, executive director. “We urge everyone to become aware of what they should do to prevent a fire in their home.” According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), there are almost 365,000 residential fires reported in the U.S. every year. These fires cause more than $6 billion in property loss. While the frequency of fire deaths has steadily decreased over the past 10 years due to increased awareness and safety measures, more than 2,400 Americans still die every year in home fires. Fortunately, most home fires can be prevented. Homeowners should check for items that can be hazardous such as candles and space heaters – common items that can turn dangerous very quickly. To help avoid a fire in the home, there

resort daily. Participants will visit a Mayan ruin, travel with a field guide to explore local wildlife or join Sustainable Harvest International for a day-long service project and lunch with a Belizean family in their home. Edison Study Abroad is open to students for college credit, as well as family and community members. “Our previous trips to China, England and other countries have focused on historical and cultural aspects of the visited areas. This is an opportunity to look at another wonderful aspect of our world,” said Eileen Thompson, English faculty member and Study Abroad coordinator. “We

are steps someone can take now: • Keep items that can catch on fire at least three feet away from anything that gets hot, such as sources of heat or stoves. • Never smoke in bed. • Turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to sleep. • Install smoke alarms on every level of the home and outside each sleeping area. Put a smoke alarm inside every bedroom. Because smoke rises, put the alarms on the ceiling or high on the wall. Test the smoke alarms regularly. Install new batteries every year. Get new smoke alarms every 10 years. • Make a plan. The Red Cross recommends that households develop a fireescape plan and practice it at least twice a year with everyone who lives in the home. People should know two ways to escape from every room and designate a safe place to meet outside the home in case of a fire. • Download the Red Cross first aid app to get access to life-saving information on what to do for common, everyday first aid emergencies including burns. The app is available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play for Android. People can visit for more steps they can take to lessen the chance of a fire in their homes.

The tour of War Horse, which was adapted from the book by Morpurgo by Nick Stafford, is directed by Bijan Sheibani based on the original Tony Award-winning direction by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, and presented in association with Handspring Puppet Company. At the heart of the show are lifesized puppets which bring breathing,

galloping, charging horses to life on stage. Tickets start at $40.

months ago, I developed a hernia on my right side, but with no pain. My doctor said I do not need an operation, because there is no pain. Do you agree? I am 74 and in exceptionally good health. ANSWER: A hernia is a weakness or defect in the abdominal wall, through which abdominal structures can pass. Watchful waiting is a reasonable choice for an asymptomatic hernia — one that causes no symptoms — since only a minority of people with a diagnosed hernia will need surgery due to development of symptoms. The biggest risk is part of the intestine coming through the hernia and becoming stuck, which is called a strangulated hernia, and is a surgical emergency. Since most people do very well with surgical repair, many surgeons recommend surgery even on hernias with no symptoms in order to prevent this complication. How YOU feel about it is the critical issue. If you feel more comfortable getting it fixed now to prevent the chance of future problems, tell him so, and ask to see a surgeon.

VANDALIA — Sidney gambled on a two-point conversion after scoring with 8 seconds remaining to pull within a point. But the pass was knocked down, giving the Vandalia Aviators a 20-19 thriller in Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division football play Friday night. The Jackets drop to 4-4 on the year with their second straight loss and have powerful Trotwood to contend with Friday night at Sidney Memorial Stadium. Vandalia is 5-3 and remains perfect in the North at 3-0. After a scoreless third quarter and most of the fourth quarter, the offenses suddenly got in gear. Vandalia drove for the winning score with just 1:58 left, and added a two-point conversion for a 20-13 lead. But the Jackets would not throw in the towel. A good return of the ensuing kick out to the 40 sparked the Jackets and they took advantage of two Vandalia pass interference penalties to put the ball on the 5 with :12.7 remaining. That’s when Jordan Fox found Tyren Cox on a pass in the endzone to set up the two-point conversion attempt to win it. “In that situation, I will always go for two,” said Sidney head coach Adam Doenges. “When I’m on the road, and only three yards away from a win, I’m going for two. Plus, we were banged up. We were without two starters,

then we lost three or four more during the game, so we had eight kids going both ways at the end. We had three freshmen in on that last kickoff, and one of them picked up the ball and returned it to the 40. “I’m proud of those seniors,” he added. “When those 11 seniors came here two years ago, it was 64-0 and the referees didn’t stop the clock in the second half. So I’m proud of the way they performed tonight.” Sidney took a chance on the opening kickoff, trying an onside kick that Vandalia recovered. With a semi-short field, the Aviators took just two plays to score, with Jordan Muhlenkamp taking a 41-yard pass from Chandler Craine for a 6-0 lead just 29 seconds into the game. Sidney came right back, however, and got a key fourth-down conversion down to the Vandalia 8 on a pass to Eric Barnes out of the backfield. On third down from about that spot, Jordan Fox found Zack Scott in the endzone for a 7-yard scoring strike. The extra point was missed and the two teams remained tied at 6-6. Vandalia came back with an 11-yard run by Michael Hutchinson with 3:15 left in the opening quarter, which ended with the Aviators on top 12-6. The touchdown came after a successful fake punt. Midway through the second

quarter, the Jackets mounted a drive that would take the lead. Again, a key play was a pass to Barnes out of the backfield. The Jackets also converted another fourth-down play, with Fox scoring on a 3-yard run with 4:09 left in the half. The Jacket defense then held on fourth down inside the five with under 20 seconds remaining and the half ended 13-12. Neither offense could mange anything in the third quarter, Sidney being saddled with poor field position the entire period. The Jackets finally got it going midway through the final period, but on a fourth-and-inches at the Vandalia 9, the Jackets tried a pass and it fell incomplete. Vandalia then started picking up big chunks of yardage on the ensuing drive and headed for the game-winning score. Score by quarters: Sidney 6 7 0 6—19 Vandalia 12 0 0 8—20 Scoring summary: Vandalia — Muhlenkamp, 41-yard pass from Craine (kick failed) Sidney — Scott, 7-yard pass from Fox (kick failed) Vandalia — Hutchinson, 11-yard run (pass failed) Sidney — Fox, 3-yard run (Barnes kick) Vandalia — Proffitt, 13-yard pass from Craine (Proffitt, pass from Craine)

Fullenkamp returns two punts for TDs, Loramie rolls 54-0 MCGUFFEY — Upper Scioto Valley wanted to shorten the game, and it frustrated the Fort Loramie Redskins a little, said head coach Matt Burgbacher. But it didn’t make any difference in the outcome, the Redskins rolling to a 54-0 victory in Northwest Central Conference football action Friday night. The win puts the Redskins at 6-2 on the year and 3-1 in the NWCC. They will return to action Friday at Lima Perry. “We needed that,” said Burgbacher in reference to his team coming off a loss last week. “Upper Scioto was taking 25 seconds off the clock on each play so we only ran 38 offensive plays all night. And that was frustrating. They wanted to shorten the game and they did. But when we got the ball we were able to score fast, and that’s what we want.” Craig Fullenkamp led the onslaught by returning two punts for touchdowns. One went for 75 yards in the opening period and the other for 70 yards in the third quarter. Delaunte Thornton got the scoring C. Fullencamp started with a 3-yard run for a score, and Fullenkamp followed with his first punt return for a 13-0 lead after a quarter. Thornton added two more TDs in the second quarter on runs of 15 and 17 yards for a 26-0 lead at the half. The Redskins really opened it up in the third quarter with three more scores. Andy Grewe hit Troy Benanzer for a 22-yard scoring pass, then Fullenkamp returned his second punt for a touchdown. Benanzer then caught a 61-yard TD pass from Tyler Kazmaier, who was back in action Friday after missing several weeks with a knee injury Grewe then ended the scoring with a 2-yard run. “We changed some things up this week and the kids really responded,” said Burgbacher. Score by quarters: Fort Loramie 13 13 21 7—54 Upper Scioto 0 0 0 0— Scoring summary: Loramie — Thornton, 3-yard run (kick failed) Loramie — Fullenkamp, 75-yard punt return (Stripling kick) Loramie — Thornton, 15-yard run (Stripling kick) Loramie — Thornton 17-yard run (kick failed) Loramie — Benanzer, 22-yard pass from Grewe (Stripling kick) Loramie — Fullenkamp, 70-yard punt return (Stripling kick) Loramie — Benanzer, 61-yard pass from Kazmaier (Stripling kick) Loramie — Grewe, 2-yard run (Stripling kick)

Lehman’s Kristopher Lee rumbles for yardage after catching a pass in action against Ridgemont at Sidney Memorial Stadium.

Rourke sets two school records in 61-6 victory As expected, the Lehman Cavaliers had no trouble posting their seventh consecutive win, blasting visiting Ridgemont Friday night at Sidney Memorial Stadium in Northwest Central Conference football action. The win puts the Cavaliers at 7-1 on the season and keeps them perfect in NWCC play at 4-0. They can clinch at least a share of the league title in their Rourke next outing, which won’t come until a week from tonight at Sidney Memorial Stadium against Waynesfield-Goshen in NWCC play. Highlighting Friday’s win over

the now 2-6 Gophers was Lehman quarterback Nick Rourke, who set two new school records in the win. He threw six touchdown passes, which is a new school record, and also established a new season record for TD passes. He now has 20. Running back John Husa scored two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving. Rourke also hit Drew Westerheide for a touchdown, and threw two scoring passes to both Clay Selsor and Mitch Slater. The other two scored came from the defense. Colin Hughes picked

up a fumble and returned it for a score, and Dylan Arnold picked off a pass and returned it for a touchdown. The game as over quickly as the Cavaliers put up 35 points in the opening quarter. They then stretched the lead to 55-0 at the half. Lehman added just one score in the second half, and actually knelt down rather than kick the extra points on the final two touchdowns. Score by quarters: Ridgemont 0 0 0 6_ 6 Lehman 35 20 0 6—61 Records: Lehman 6-1, Ridgemont 2-5.

Anna’s Matthew Bruce runs for yadage against New Bremen Friday night at Anna. He rushed for 131 yards in Anna’s 49-6 win.

Rockets snap skid, win 49-6 ANNA — Anna snapped a four-game losing streak and kept New Bremen winless on the year with a 49-6 victory over the Cardinals in Midwest Athletic Conference action Friday night at Anna. The win puts the Rockets at 3-5 on the season heading into their toughest test of the season, Friday night at home against the powerful Marion Local Flyers. Marion routed Coldwater 47-14 Friday to go 8-0 on the year. New Bremen drops to 0-8 and plays at home Friday against Delphos St. John’s. Anna got the ball on New Bremen’s 35 on its first possession after a short Cardinal punt, and it didn’t take long to

reach paydirt. Matthew Bruce, who rushed for 131 yards on 22 carries on the night, ran in from 10 yards out to make it 7-0. Nick Nolte then picked off a New Bremen pass and set up the Rockets at their own 42. The drive culminated on a 34-yard pass from Josh Robinson to Carter Bensman, the first of three TD passes for the Anna quarterback. On the ensuing Bremen possession, Robinson intercepted a pass and gave the Rockets the ball on their own 33. They drove to another score, this one on a 33-yard pass from Robinson to Nick Ihle to make it 21-0 early in the second period.

Then the Rockets took advantage of a strange play when New Bremen didn’t cover the ensuing kickoff. Nolte recovered on the Bremen 23, and Robinson capped the drive with a oneyard run to make it 28-0. Anna wasn’t done yet in the first half, however, as Bruce scored from 14 yards out. The Rockets added two more scores in the third quarter, the first on a 44-yard pass from Robinson to Bensman and the second on a sevenyard run by Jordan Jurosic. Garrett Westerbeck put Bremen on the board in the final period on a six-yard run. Score by quarters: NB 0 0 0 6—6

Versailles loses 27-26 in OT VERSAILLES — Delphos St. John’s broke up Versailles’ two-point conversion attempt in overtime Friday night to defeat the Tigers 27-26 and end their playoff hopes. Versailles blocked a St.

John’s extra point attempt with just 17 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime. In overtime, Tyler Jettinghoff ran for a 10-yard touchdown to put the Blue

Jays up 27-20. Versailles pulled to within one point as Nick Campbell connected with Zach Steinbrunner for a 10-yard touchdown pass, making it 27-26.

The Tigers went for the two-point conversion, which Ben Wrasman broke up to preserve the St. John’s win. The loss dropped Versailles’ record to 3-5 and ended their playoff aspirations.

FORT RECOVERY — Minster kept up its winning ways, chalking up its third straight victory with a 35-13 verdict over Fort Recovery in Midwest Athletic Conference football action Friday night on the road. The Wildcats go to 5-3 on the season with Versailles coming to town Friday night. Minster is now 5-1 in the MAC and has averaged 39 points a game in its last three outings. It was another outstanding night throwing the ball for quarterback Josh Nixon. He connected on 18 of 23 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns. And again, Eli Wolf was his favorite target, catching seven passes for 88 yards. Those two hooked up on the first score of the night, with 5:35 left in the opening period. It went for 21 yards. Fort Recovery answered back, however, on a one-yard run by Kyle Timmerman on the final play of the first quarter. The extra point kick tied it at 7-7. But Minster took control in the second quarter with two scores. The first came on a 25-yard pass from Nixon to AJ Huelsman with 8:23 left in the half. Then less than three minuts later, Jacob Stechschulte ran in from three yards out to make it 21-7 at the half. After the Indians scored first in the third quarter to cut the lead to 21-13, Nixon went to work again, this time hitting Ethan Wolf from 25 yards out to make it 28-13. Sam Dues then added a fiveyard scoring run with 9:18 left in the game. Dues finished with 86 yards rushing on 22 carries for the Wildcats, and Nixon added 51 more on just five carries. Minster’s defense allowed the Indians just 128 yards in total offense, including just 55 yards rushing. Score by quarters: Minster 7 14 7 7—35 Recovery 7 0 6 0—13 Scoring summary: Minster — Eli Wolf, 21-yard pass from Nixon (Schultz kick) FR — Timmerman, 1-yard run (Sheffer kick) Minster — Huelsman, 25-yard pass from Nixon (Schultz kick) Minster — Stechschulte, 3-yard run (Schultz kick) FR — Wenning, 1-yard run (kick failed) Minster — Ethan Wolf, 25-yard pass from Nixon (Schultz kick) Minster — Dues, 5-yard run (Schultz kick) Records: Minster 5-3, Fort Recovery 3-5

Wilson Memorial plays host to annual new physician reception Wilson Memorial Hospital, in conjunction with the SidneyShelby County Chamber of Commerce, held a reception Wednesday evening to introduce and honor the newest members of their medical staff. The event, held at the Piqua Country Club, included local business and community leaders, area physicians, hospital donors and staff. Margo O’Leary, director of Marketing and Public Relations at Wilson Memorial, welcomed guests to the reception. “Every year we host this event as an opportunity to recognize and introduce the newest members of our medical staff,” said O’Leary. “I’d like to thank the Sidney-Shelby County Chamber of Commerce for partnering with us on this annual event. We greatly value our membership at the Chamber and certainly their ongoing support of Wilson Memorial Hospital.” Following O’Leary’s remarks, Tom Boecker, president and chief executive officer of Wilson Memorial, was welcomed to the podium and shared his comments and introduced the providers. “A hospital is only as good as its medical staff,” said Boecker. “That is what brings us together this evening — to honor and introduce to you the newest members of the Wilson Memorial medical staff. The hospital administration and board of trustees focus a great deal of attention and resources in attracting quality providers to serve the community — it’s one of the most important jobs we have. I am pleased to say that we have another outstanding group of individuals here tonight.” Next, the providers in attendance who have joined Wilson Memorial’s active medical staff in the past year were introduced. They include: • Dr. Pradipta Chaudhuri, a board-certified and fellowshiptrained cardiologist with Lima

In 1997, Tom was named president and CEO and still holds this title today. “Tom has dedicated his entire professional career to Wilson Memorial Hospital, ensuring that the health care needs of the community are continually being met. I see a very progressive hospital in Wilson Memorial and it is through Tom’s visionary approach that the hospital has remained independent and locally-owned and operated - that is to be commended.” Following Crosley’s remarks, a formal toast was made in Boecker’s honor.

AG DeWine: Restaurants targeted by utility scams COLUMBUS — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has warned that Ohio restaurants have been targeted by utility scams, where callers threaten to shut off the restaurant’s power unless it provides immediate payment. At least four restaurants have filed reports of the scam since July, and two reportedly lost approximately $500 to $800 to the scam. “Scams are often underreported, so it’s likely that other businesses have been affected,” DeWine said. “We want to make sure all Ohio businesses know about this and warn their employees. It’s hard enough to run a business without having to worry about con artists trying to take advantage of you or your employees.” In a typical scam, a caller contacts the business claiming to represent a local utility company and says the business is late on its payments. The caller threatens to turn off the business’ power unless it makes an immediate payment via a prepaid money card.

Utility scams have been reported by businesses in Cleveland, Columbus and Fairfield County. Businesses should take the following steps to protect themselves: • Be skeptical of callers who threaten to shut off your power unless you make an immediate payment. • If you receive a suspicious or threatening call, hang up and call your utility company using a number you know to be legitimate. • Demand information in writing before sending any payment. • Don’t trust someone who says you must pay using a prepaid money card or wire transfer. These are preferred payment methods for scammers. • Warn employees about potential scams. Businesses or consumers who suspect a scam or unfair business practice should contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at or 800-282-0515.

Dickman Supply nominated for national awards This week the IMARK Group held its annual members meeting at the La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, Calif., and Dickman Supply was nominated as a finalist in the top two categories for national awards during the closing banquet. IMARK Group, Inc. is a member-owned marketing group made of 980 independently-owned electrical distributors throughout the United States and Canada, representing the largest electrical distribution entity in the industry. Each year at the annual meeting, IMARK passes out top awards in four areas. Dickman Supply saw its name go up on the big screen as one of four finalists in both the “Excellence in Sales and Marketing” and “Member of the Year” categories. Dickman previously earned the national Excellence in Sales and Marketing Award in 2010, and the Member of the Year award in 2011, given to the distributor who scores highest on an objective

point scale of categories including growth, planning excellence, employee training and IMARK participation. “At Dickman Supply we have always strived to bring the highest value to our customers. To be recognized as one of the top companies in North America in multiple categories really speaks to the job that Dickman people work hard to do every day,” said Dickman Supply President Tim Geise. “I’m proud of every one of them and their accomplishments.” Dickman Supply is an electrical and industrial wholesaler, headquartered in Sidney with locations also in Greenville, Celina and Marysville. Representing more than 400 manufacturers, the company provides solutions for industrial and electrical product applications for commercial and industrial facilities, and contractors throughout West Central Ohio and Eastern Indiana.

Russia to rent land RUSSIA — The village of Russia is accepting bids for the rental of tillable ground owned by the village. The ground consists of three tracts of land. The first two tracts of land will be bid as one package. The third tract of land will be bid separately. The first tract of land is approximately 10 acres and is located on the east side of Simon Road and north of the CSX railroad tracks. The second tract of land is approximately 15 acres and is on the west side of Miller Road and is just north of the village water plant. This tract does not include the

area around the village well field. The third tract of land is approximately 55 acres of tillable land located on Russia-Versailles Road. It is south of the CSX railway and lies between the village water tower and the wastewater treatment plant. The length of the contract agreements will be for three years and will commence on Nov. 15 and expire on Nov. 14, 2016. Bids will be accepted at the village office until 9 a.m. on Nov. 7. Those interested may contact Rick Simon, village administrator at 526-4436 for any additional information.

Russia veterans invited to lunch RUSSIA — All Russia veterans are invited to a special luncheon at Russia Local School beginning at 1 p.m. on Nov. 14. A school-wide assembly will be held in the gym afterward beginning at 2 p.m. Those planning to attend (spouses are welcome) should contact the school office so plans can be made accordingly. The cafeteria will need a fairly accurate count of attendees so they can prepare enough food for the luncheon. The school phone number is 526-3156, or email the FCCLA Adviser Penny Elmore at

In addition, organizers would like to include a picture of each veteran, in uniform, from the time period each served in the school presentation. Vets whose picture was not included in last year’s presentation are asked to provide on for inclusion. Pictures should be brought to the school at least one week before the program. Organizers will scan it, include it in the presentation, and return it on the day of the veterans program or sooner. Those who are able to scan their picture at home and submit it via email are welcome to do so.

Photo contest taking entries NEW BREMEN — The Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce will include a holiday photography contest in this year’s German Family Christmas. “Frames and Such is sponsoring the contest, and we’re really excited about this fun way for folks to get involved,” said Executive Director Scott Frey. “We’re always looking for ways to improve German Family Christmas and make it more interesting for shoppers and visitors to our communities, and this photography contest was big last year.” Photographers — amateur and professional — are invited to submit their work to be judged by chamber member photographers Greg Garman and Jenny Pleiman. “The entry fee is only $20 per photographer, no mat-

ter how many pieces they show,” said Frey. “We want to encourage as many folks to participate as we can in order to get a wide variety of subjects and perspectives in the photography. We’re hoping that many of the entries will show a holiday theme but that’s not required.” Entries must be submitted by Nov. 1 to Frames and Such, 93 E. Fourth St., Minster. The entries will be on display at Western Ohio True Value Hardware during German Family Christmas. Entries should be framed for tabletop display so they are able to stand on their own. Frey said the entries will be judged in the following four categories: Portrait (single or group), Landscape/ Nature, Black and White, and People’s Choice. Complete contest rules are available on the chamber website at

The Broken Chain We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Naturally, they go out of letters over the years from with all the popular guys, teens who got caught up in the who are mostly athletes. If a popularity game and expericute guy does ask me out for mented naively with drugs, the first time, it is usually the alcohol and sex. Their letters

all reveal the same results: this path led to nothing more than the temporary illusion of happiness. These young people only found true happiness when they found true love — of themselves, their families, their church, their friends and their Creator. Be true to yourself and your faith, Megan. Your future holds a decent young man who will share your moral standards. You are not missing out on the fun. You’re wisely bypassing the road that too often leads to disaster! TEENS: Some time ago, a young lady wrote that her dog could understand her commands. If she said, “Roll over,” her pooch would roll over. If she said, “Fetch my slippers,” Poochie would bring her slippers, one at a time. When she said, “Time to eat,” Poochie would head

straight for his food bowl and wait patiently until it was filled. The writer wanted to know if she had a special dog that understood human words. I replied that I didn’t think dogs could understand human words but, rather, they reacted to tone of voice and to the action the owner demonstrated when giving the command. I soon received volumes of mail from readers informing me that their dogs could understand and respond to them. I still didn’t really believe that dogs could actually understand and respond to human words. Boy, was I wrong! According to researchers, apes and dolphins are best at learning to understand words. Now dogs can be added to this intelligent group. A scientific study has demonstrated that dogs real-

ly understand much of what they hear. Researchers in Germany tested a collie that understood over 200 words and was learning new ones quickly. The collie knew the names of play toys and could find the one called for by the owners. I must apologize to every dog in the land for underestimating their brain power! This newfound respect for dogs only increases my already great love for them. But I would caution dog owners: Be careful of what you say in front of your pooch. The words might be understood! 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.

Your Horoscope Francis Drake

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Oct. 21, 2013: ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The next few weeks is the perfect time to wrap up loose details with banking, taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others. Make use of this opportunity. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Partners will return to your life again, if they haven’t already. Consider this an opportunity for closure or a chance to get some answers. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Just accept the fact that your work and your job will suffer from delays, miscommunication, lost paperwork

and broken equipment for the next several weeks. Mercury is retrograde. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Old flames might be back on the scene. However, the next few weeks are a good time to review and revisit practical plans related to the care of children. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Family reunions are likely. Or you might deal with old family business. You also might talk to a relative you haven’t seen for a long time. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) The next few weeks will be plagued by transportation delays, missed meetings, lost items, confused communication and people from your past in your face. Yes, it’s Mercury retrograde. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Checks in the mail will be late. Those of you who

are looking for work will be more successful if you check places where you worked before or had some kind of previous contact. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Mercury is retrograde in your sign, which means you will contact ex-partners and people from your past. Despite frustrations, this is an excellent time to finish old business. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Research will go well now. If you’re looking for answers from the past, you’ll be like a hot knife slicing through butter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Expect to run into old friends, especially in groups. Someone might give you feedback that helps you to change former goals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) In the next few weeks,

you might encounter bosses from your past or a parent you haven’t seen for a while. Issues related to authority figures will come back to haunt you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Travel plans might be delayed or could suffer from glitches in the next few weeks. It will be easier to visit places you’ve been to before, as opposed to going to new ones. YOU BORN TODAY People find you attractive; in fact, you can inspire others. You have excellent verbal skills. You are charming, but at times, you can be challenging! Words are your strength, which is why many of you sell, write, edit and act. You enjoy having fun. This year you begin an exciting new cycle. Be bold; open any door! Birthdate of: Charlotte Sullivan, actress; Will Estes, actor; Kim Kardashian, celebrity/businesswoman.

Wilson plans sports medicine symposium Wilson Memorial Hospital will host its first annual sports medicine symposium on Oct. 31 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The symposium will provide athletic trainers, physical therapists and physical therapy assistants with an opportunity to enhance their knowledge in sports medicine.

Participants will also hear from athletic trainers and physical therapists on topics related to nutrition, injury prevention and ethics in athletic training. The symposium is approved by the National Athletic Trainers Association and the Board of Certifications (BOC) and is pending approval by the Ohio Physical Therapy Association.
