Security officer approved The Shelby County Commissioners approved a new courthouse security officer and an online dog licensing contract during their meetings this week. The commissioners approved Wilbur Benson, a retired Piqua police officer, as security officer, effective Oct. 23, to fill in for other security officers during their days off or when needed for other reasons.

Ball and Kinninger presented a report on the Veteran’s Service Commission Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 report of Veteran’s Administration expenditures. In other action, the commissioners

approved the following: • Appropriated $2,000 into DARE fund for supplies. • Released fourth quarter funding to EMA in the amount of $15,000. • Appropriated $17,410.83 into the Shelby County Clerk of Courts computer fund for equipment. • Appropriated $100,000 into the Shelby County Clerk of Courts Special Projects fund for equipment. • Appropriated $3,500 into Shelby County Victim Services fund for salaries.

When it came to weather, October offered something for everyone, from hot, summer-like days to snow, week-long dry spells to downpours, still nights to a tornado. The latter touched down along the Shelby/Miami County border

Thursday night. It was preceded by racing winds and almost an inch of rain. The wettest day of the month was Oct. 5, when 1.32 inches of rain fell. From Oct. 8 through Oct. 14, and again from Oct. 25 to Oct. 30, no rain fell at all.

But on Oct. 23, it was snow that surprised area residents when they woke up. It melted quickly and comprised just 0.04 inches of precipitation. Rainfall for the month totalled 4.27 inches. The high was 82 on Oct. 5. The low was 30 on Oct. 22.

Letter to the Editor

Candidate vows to improve village To the editor: On Nov. 5 the voters of Fort Loramie will cast their vote for four new members of Village Council. My commitment to you if I am elected as a member of council will be hard work, integrity, honesty, respect, and a professional approach to all matters that come in front of council. Every effort will be made to attract new jobs to our community. I feel that it is extremely important that the elected members of council work with each business and industry, no matter the size, with the same enthusiasm. We will count our new jobs one at a time. At the same time communications with our existing businesses should be of high priority for the purpose of maintaining and improving our current employment levels. During these next four years, I will ask for your support and input to make Fort Loramie a better place to live and work. Working together, we can make great strides in attracting new business, industry and residents. Our personal pride in our physical appearance, attitude, and a friendly welcome for those that look at Fort Loramie as a new home will go a long way to

achieve our goals. Our community is positioned for growth. We have an excellent school system, new leadership in the police department that is making a difference every day, our community pride is high, and our property values are healthy. A good idea for our community would be something that will increase our quality of life and enhance our image among visitors. I want to begin an active search for businesses to come into the industrial park and expand current businesses already there. I would also like to see work started on the new park across from the high school and for council to work with developers to continue to develop affordable housing that will attract families to settle in our community. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves with me and work together on making Fort Loramie a better place in the future, I would appreciate your vote on Nov. 5 and will hold it in high regard.

would also be required to pay the additional funds to the state. The school district listened to voters after the 0.8mill permanent improvement levy expired and the failure of a 4.73 mill emergency levy in 2010. The district has made cuts in expenditures amounting to $6.6 million per year. All staff in the district agreed to have their salaries/benefits cut by 5.8 percent. All salaries have been frozen until 2015. Staff for the district has gone from 500 employees to 401. “If the levy doesn’t pass, we’ll go back to square one,” said Scheu. “We have to replace the expiring millage.” The three co-chairmen of the levy committee issued this statement about Tuesday’s election: “After the close August election, we were energized by the tremendous outpouring of support we got from the community. It became very clear that our message was on target, but that more people needed to hear it from a more personal perspective. In preparation for Tuesday’s election, we focused on reaching more people with targeted mailings to help them better determine their own personal financial outcomes. “We did an extensive direct mail campaign to our identified supporters, senior citizen community, recent graduates, parents and guardians. In addition, we sent a

comprehensive postcard to all residents in the district. Combined with our four public meetings and countless one-on-one conversations, dedicated website, and the questions/answers in the Sidney Daily News, we have offered many opportunities for voters to gather all of the necessary data to make an informed decision. “We know this is a solid plan of action to continue funding our schools at current levels. It is a plan that will distribute the financial responsibility among the largest pool of people. “At this time, it is in the voters’ hands. Passage of this levy is critical to the continuing financial and educational progress our district, including 3,600 students, 400 staff members and the 19,000 residents of Sidney. It will give us an assured 5-year financial forecast in the black and will allow us to work on improving our state grade card. We will also be able to continue to rebuild our relationship with our community. “We’ve listened to the community. We’ve acted and will continue to do so,” they concluded. Anyone who may still have questions should visit the levy’s website at or to call any of the co-chairs: Davis 622-2146; Warner 498-0763 or Rose 726-4659. The polls will be open Tuesday from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Voters From page 1 ways to go,” said Scheu. “But we have seen significant progress in a lot of areas. We have reigned in our costs and have acted according what to the district’s residents have said.” But the bottom line, he said, is a new tax levy must be passed to replace the 9.9 mill levy which expires on Dec. 31. “We cannot operate with out replacing the amount of money that is disappearing when the 9.9 mill levy comes off the books.” The district, he said has cut $6.6 million in expenses over the past several years. It cannot cut another $4.7 million from the budget and continue to operate. The We Listened, We Acted levy campaign has been led by co-chairmen Renee Davis, Bill Warner and Dave Rose.

If passed, the collection of the income tax will begin Jan. 1. The 9.9 mill levy property tax will expire at the end of 2013 but will continue to collected into 2014. If the levy passes Tuesday, employers will be instructed to change their payrolls effective Jan. 1 to deduct the tax from the district residents’ salaries, said Treasurer Mike Watkins. “The first money the school would see would be after the first quarter that ends March 31,” said Watkins. “In April we receive a percentage of what has been collected.” Also, he said, if the levy is approved steps will be taken to reduce the millage collected in 2014 from the expiring property tax. Because of the overlap, the board will approve a resolution authorizing the Shelby County Auditor’s Office to reduce or lessen the collection rate of the property tax levy to offset the collection of the income tax in 2014.

Christmas Tree Festival planned in New Bremen

NEW BREMEN — The New Bremen Historic Association will continue a new tradition in the community. The organization will hold its third annual Christmas Tree Festival at the Lockkeeper‘s House. The group would like to have the community become more involved with this new Visitors Center and focus on doing something “special” there for the holiday season. Members are asking every interested business, organization, church, family, child or adult to display a tree or other Christmas decoration that depicts their individual interest. This display will be opened to the public during an open house on Dec. 1 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. In cooperation with the New Bremen/New Knoxville Rotary, the display will also be open during the New Bremen Christmas Tree Lighting on Dec. 5. The Christmas Tree Festival will remain at the Lockkeeper’s House throughout the holiday season. With the Chamber of Commerce located in the building, the public will have access to visiting during the regular Chamber hours. Times will be offered to assemble your displays during the two weeks prior to the opening with a completion date of Nov. 30. Members hope to continue to “build” this event each year with community involvement and participation. If, by chance, a person does not have access to an extra tree, the group will try our best to find one for you; however, members are hoping this will be an annual event and the tree could be used year after year. To reserve a space or for any questions, contact one of the following by Nov. 15: Diane Paul, 419-629-2856 ,, Mary Moeller, 419-629-3635 or Judy Meckstroth, 419-629-2017.

The funds raised will support the Minster Rocket Club as they compete in two national events this year. Since 2009 the Minster Rocket Club has earned their way into the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC), where the top 100 schools from the county go to compete in the world’s largest rocket contest. Teams design, build and fly a model rocket that reaches a specific altitude and duration determined by a set of rules developed each year. The contest is designed to encourage students to study math and science and pursue careers in aerospace. In an effort to make this poinsettia fundraiser a success, members are calling upon family, friends and local businesses to help them.

Several varieties are available and each plant comes wrapped in a beautiful gold pot cover, and has a protective sleeve to make it easy to handle and transport. The poinsettias are of the best quality and make wonderful gifts that will brighten any home or office for the holidays. All orders must be picked up from the Minster Junior/Senior High School on Dec. 4 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Orders are due by Nov. 18 and payment is expected at time of order. Purchase your poinsettias in one of these three ways: visit the Minster Jr/Sr High School office between 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., contact any Minster Rocket Club member, or place an online credit card order at www.minsterrocketclub. com/poinsettia-sale.

Ohio death row inmate: Doctor couldn’t find veins Andrew Welsh-Huggins

Associated Press

COLUMBUS — A prison doctor couldn’t find veins in the arms of a death row inmate during a pre-execution checkup, the inmate said Friday by video in rare court testimony as he challenges the state’s new, nevertried lethal-injection method. Condemned child killer Ronald Phillips said the doctor could find only a vein on his right hand following an examination Oct. 18 at the medical center at Chillicothe Correctional Institution, south of Columbus. “I guess the Lord hid my veins from them,” Phillips said. Phillips, 40, testified under questioning by his attorneys

that the doctor said he wasn’t part of the state’s lethal-injection process when asked to do the checks. A prison nurse also participated. Phillips said he had a fear of needles dating from childhood when his parents would sell drugs and let addicts shoot up in their kitchen in a tough Akron neighborhood. He testified by video hookup from the prison where death row is housed for more than an hour. He’s scheduled to die Nov. 14 for raping and killing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter, Sheila Marie Evans, in 1993. There are no recent examples of Ohio death row inmates testifying in person or by video in federal court cases.

Phillips testified as part of a lawsuit brought by his attorneys to delay his execution while they gather evidence against the state’s new execution policy, which includes a two-drug injection process. The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction announced the new policy last month and said Monday it would use that process, which involves the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromorphone. Phillips’ attorneys say the department’s announcements came too close to the execution date to allow a meaningful challenge. The state says nothing is substantially different about the new system. The hearing Friday began by

focusing on the state’s decision to allow the prisons director or death house warden to delegate responsibility for changes in the execution process. That could include any deviation from the policy, down to paperwork documenting a particular step. Ohio has walked away from that promise with the new policies, Phillips’ attorney Allen Bohnert told the judge. “Close enough for government work is not acceptable in applying this death penalty protocol,” Bohnert said. An attorney for Ohio said the state is committed to carrying out the execution in a humane, dignified and constitutional manner and understands that commitment.

“The state will do what the state says it will do,” said Christopher Conomy, an assistant Ohio attorney general. Judge Gregory Frost was not expected to rule Friday. Phillips’ attorneys also are challenging the state’s new policy for the lethal drugs it will use. The state’s first choice is a specialty dose of the powerful sedative pentobarbital mixed by a compounding pharmacy. If that can’t be obtained, as in the case of Phillips’ execution, the state will use the two-drug method to put Phillips to death. Phillips’ lawyers argue the two drugs could cause severe side effects, including painful vomiting.

Ohio gay-marriage lawsuit can proceed Amanda Lee Myers Associated Press

CINCINNATI — A federal judge on Friday ruled that a lawsuit seeking to have gay marriages recognized on Ohio death certificates can proceed despite a statewide ban on the nuptials. Judge Timothy Black rejected a request from state attorneys asking to have a funeral director removed from the lawsuit, a move that essentially would

have squelched it. By allowing Cincinnati funeral director Robert Grunn to remain a plaintiff, the judge allows for his upcoming final ruling in the lawsuit to apply to potentially every gay Ohio couple who married in another state. In his ruling, he indirectly addressed critics of the lawsuit who have called for his impeachment for encroaching on state’s rights, among other allegations.

for practical burial purposes and symbolic ones. The judge issued temporary orders granting their requests, saying that the couples deserved to be treated with respect and that Ohio law historically has recognized out-ofstate marriages as valid as long as they were legal where they took place. He cited marriages between cousins and those involving minors. “How then can Ohio, especially given the historical sta-

tus of Ohio law, single out same-sex marriages as ones it will not recognize?” the judge wrote in July. “The short answer is that Ohio cannot.” When Grunn was added to the lawsuit as a plaintiff in September, his attorneys asked the judge for a broader ruling to require Ohio’s health department director to order all funeral directors and coroners to list gay clients as married if they were legally wed in other states.

“Despite the fact that voters may support a given law, rights protected by the U.S. Constitution can never be subordinated to the vote of the majority,” the judge wrote. The lawsuit originally was filed by and would have applied only to two gay Cincinnati couples who married over the summer in other states. One spouse in each couple recently died, and the surviving spouses sought to have them recognized on death certificates as married

Today in History Associated Press

Today is Saturday, Nov. 2, the 306th day of 2013. There are 59 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 2, 1948, President Truman surprised the experts by winning a narrow upset over Republican challenger Thomas E. Dewey. On this date: In 1783, Gen. George Washington issued his Farewell Orders to the Armies of the United States near Princeton, New Jersey. In 1795, the 11th president of the United States, James Knox Polk, was born in Mecklenburg County, N.C. In 1865, the 29th president of the United States, Warren Gamaliel Harding, was born near Corsica, Ohio. In 1889, North Dakota and South Dakota became the 39th and 40th states. In 1917, British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour issued a declaration expressing support for a “national home” for the Jews in Palestine. In 1947, Howard Hughes piloted his huge wooden flying boat, the Hughes H-4 Hercules (dubbed the “Spruce Goose” by detractors), on its only flight, which lasted about a minute over Long Beach Harbor in California. In 1959, game show contestant Charles Van Doren admitted to a House subcommittee that he’d been given questions and answers in advance when he appeared on the NBC-TV program “Twenty-One.” In 1962, President John F. Kennedy delivered a brief statement to the nation in which he said that aerial photographs had confirmed that Soviet missile bases in Cuba were being dismantled, and that “progress is now being made toward the restoration of peace in the Caribbean.” In 1963, South Vietnamese President Ngo Dihn Diem was assassinated in a military coup. In 1976, former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter became the first candidate from the Deep South since the Civil War to be elected president as he defeated incumbent Gerald R. Ford. In 1979, black militant JoAnne Chesimard escaped from a New Jersey prison, where she’d been serving a life sentence for the 1973 slaying of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster. (Chesimard, who took the name Assata Shakur, is believed to be living in Cuba.) In 1983, President Reagan signed a bill establishing a federal holiday on the third Monday of January in honor of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. In 2002, President George W. Bush called Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein a “dangerous man” with links to terrorist networks, and said that U.N. inspections for weapons of mass destruction were critical.

Out of the Blue

Not exactly the cat’s meow NEW YORK (AP) — A noxious feline odor has some Dell customers caterwauling. People who own Dell Latitude 6430u laptops are complaining that their pricey new computers are emitting a smell similar to cat urine. Some of them said on the company’s online customer forums that the odor seems to be coming from the keyboard or palm rest. The Round Rock, Texas, company originally advised buyers through its forums to try cleaning their keyboards with a soft cloth or compressed air, but the smell persisted. Dell said Thursday that its investigation revealed strange scent is related to a manufacturing process, which the company has since fixed. But if your portable PC isn’t purrfect, Dell recommends contacting the company’s technical support team to have your laptop’s palm rest assembly replaced. Company spokesman David Frink said the odor isn’t related to a “biological contamination” and doesn’t present a health hazard. He added that newly assembled laptops that are currently in stores aren’t affected.

Gunman kills TSA agent at LAX, injures 2 others Justin Pritchard Tami Abdollah

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A gunman armed with a semiautomatic rifle opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, killing a Transportation Security Administration employee and wounding two other people in an attack that frightened passengers and disrupted flights nationwide, officials said. Los Angeles police Assistant Chief Earl Paysinger said the unidentified suspect, who was apparently injured following an exchange of gunfire with officers, was in custody. Tim Kauffman, a spokesman for the American Federation of Government Employees in Washington, confirmed Friday that a TSA officer was killed.

Kauffman said the union’s information comes from their local officials in Los Angeles. Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick Gannon said the gunman pulled what he described as an “assault rifle” from a bag and began firing. “As you can imagine, a large amount of chaos took place in this entire incident,” he said. Some passengers who already had cleared security rushed onto the tarmac to evacuate, while others were locked down in airport restaurants and lounges. The airport was being swept for precautionary measures and the bomb unit was on scene. Air traffic was affected nationwide as the FAA grounded flights that had not yet departed for LAX. Witness Brian Keech said he heard “about a dozen gun-

shots” from inside a security gate at the terminal, which has been evacuated. Ben Rosen was sitting at the Starbucks in Terminal 3 eating oatmeal at about 9:20 a.m. when he heard gunfire erupt and people start running in all directions and others crouching on the ground. Rosen got on the ground and another passenger said “don’t worry we’re safe.” Then more gunshots erupted. He grabbed his phone and tried to lie down as flat on the ground as he could. Police showed up with their guns drawn, shouting, “This is not a drill, hands up.” Everyone put their hands up and then were led out of the airport terminal to the international terminal, Rosen said. As they were led out they saw broken glass from a win-

dow that looked like it’d been shot out. Rosen left his bag behind. “It was scary I’ve never experienced anything like this before,” he said. The Federal Aviation Administration said a “ground stop” was in affect for all flights heading to Los Angeles, meaning planes in any other airport in the country can’t take off for the city, although some flights already in the air were allowed to land. LAX air traffic controller Michael Foote said some flights were still being allowed to depart. Foote said his colleagues in the control tower saw passengers spilling from the terminal onto the tarmac, “evacuating the building, getting out as fast as they could.” Officers eventually corralled them.

Congress governs self under ‘Obamacare’ Laurie Kellman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Think you’re confused by “Obamacare”? It’s roiling Capitol Hill behind the scenes, too. Members of Congress are governing themselves under President Barack Obama’s signature law, which means they have great leeway in how to apply it to their own staffs. For House members and senators, it’s about a section of the law that may — or may not — require lawmakers to toss some staffers off their federal health insurance and into the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges. The verdict from congressional officers is ultimately that lawmakers, as employers, have discretion over who among their staffs gets ejected, and who stays. And they don’t have to say who, how many or why. What they all say is this: “I followed the law,” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., echoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and others. But the law as written is open to

broad interpretation, inspiring a bureaucratic web of memos, regulations and guidance that members of Congress say allows them to proceed on the question of staffers and coverage as they see fit. Lawmakers this week were required to finalize plans for who stays on federal insurance and who’s forced onto an exchange. The Affordable Care Act, signed into law in 2010, only requires members of Congress and their “official” staff members to get health insurance through one of the law’s marketplaces, or exchanges. Guidance memos from the Senate’s financial clerk and the House’s chief administrative officer, obtained by The Associated Press, define “official” aides as those who work in the lawmakers’ personal offices. Committee and leadership aides, then, would be exempt and could stay on the federal health insurance program. Unless lawmakers decide otherwise. “Individual members or their designees are in the best position to determine which staff work in the official office of each mem-

ber,” the memos quote from an Office of Personnel Management regulation. “OPM will leave those determinations to the members. … Nothing in this regulation limits a member’s authority” on the matter. The decisions were layered with Washington political logic that inspired many congressional leaders, Republicans and Democrats, to put all of their aides on the exchanges. House Speaker John Boehner and all four Senate Republican leaders are among them, putting their entire staffs into the exchanges created by a law they loathe. That allows them to slam Democrats, the new health care law’s chief defenders, who are keeping leadership and committee aides on the federal health insurance program. “If these staffers aren’t ‘official,’ then the taxpayer shouldn’t pay for their salaries or office support or anything else,” said Sen. David Vitter, R-La., announcing legislation to force each congressional office to disclose the designation for each aide.

Hagel blasts states on same-sex benefits policy Robert Burns Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Thursday sharply criticized U.S. states that are defying the Pentagon by refusing to allow National Guard facilities to issue ID cards that enable same-sex spouses of military members to claim benefits. “This is wrong,” Hagel said in a speech in New York. “Not only does this violate the states’ obligation under federal law, their actions have created hardship and inequality by forcing couples to travel long distances to federal military bases to obtain the ID cards they’re entitled to,” he said. Hagel said this is causing division among the military ranks. In his remarks to an AntiDefamation League centennial dinner speech, Hagel did not name the states that are defying Pentagon policy on this issue. But the Pentagon has

cited nine: Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia. The Pentagon says there are 114 Army and Air National Guard sites in those nine states that are not providing ID cards to eligible same-sex spouses. Hagel also used his speech to announce that he has directed the Marine Corps to expedite the manufacture and delivery to Israel of V-22 Osprey aircraft, hybrids that take off and land like a helicopter and cruise like an airplane. It is to be the first overseas sale of the Osprey. Hagel also offered assurances that the Obama administration’s interest in negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program is a way of testing Iranian intentions for a diplomatic solution to a matter that has been in dispute for years. “If we can find ways to resolve disputes peacefully, we are wise to explore them,” he said. Israel is skeptical of any negotiation

with Iran. Convinced Iran is pursuing the development of nuclear weapons to threaten his country, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the Iranians are trying to trick the West into easing economic sanctions while still pushing forward with their nuclear program. Iran insists its program is for peaceful purposes. Hagel focused much of his dinner speech on the gay rights matter, which was a central issue during the tenure of his predecessor at the Pentagon, Leon Panetta. Panetta, who retired in February, was honored at the dinner for his long career in public service. Under Pentagon policy that took effect Sept. 3, same-sex spouses of military members are eligible for the same health care, housing and other benefits enjoyed by opposite-sex spouses. That decision followed the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in June on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.

This Nov. 26, 2008, file photo taken in the Orakzai tribal region of Pakistan shows Hakimullah Mehsud who has become the leader of Pakistani Taliban faction after death of Baitullah Mehsud, whom intelligence officials said Friday was one of three people killed in a U.S. drone strike.

US drone kills Pakistani Taliban leader Kimberly Dozier Rasool Dawar Associated Press

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — A U.S. drone strike killed the leader of the Pakistani Taliban on Friday, intelligence officials in the two countries and Taliban militants said. The death is a major blow to the group a day after the government said it started peace talks with the militants. Hakimullah Mehsud, who is believed to have been behind a failed car bombing in New York’s Times Square as well as brazen attacks inside Pakistan, had a reputation for being particularly ruthless. He was widely reported to have been killed in 2010, but later resurfaced. The tribal areas where the drone attacks occur are dangerous to visit, making it difficult for journalists to independently confirm information. A senior U.S. intelligence official said the U.S. received positive confirmation Friday morning that he had been killed. Two Pakistani intelligence officials in North Waziristan also confirmed his death as did two Taliban commanders.

ROACH: My there is anything I can do or wife read that oral sex is the take to relieve these annoying chief cause of throat and lung RLS symptoms when I am cancer. Can this be true? —

Anon. ANSWER: Recently, it has been found that human papillomavirus is a risk factor for cancer of the throat and mouth (but not lung). The presence of HPV increases the risk of cancer two to three times. Smoking remains a more powerful risk factor, and increases the risk five to 25 times. HPV can be transmitted through sex, including oral sex, from someone infected with HPV. HPV can’t be transmitted through sex, oral or otherwise, in someone who doesn’t have the virus, but many or even most people infected with HPV are infected without realizing it. HPV is the cause for all or nearly all cases of cervical cancer. The vaccine for HPV dramatically reduces the risk of cervical cancer. It is hoped that it will reduce the risk of head and neck cancers as well. All males and females ages 13 to 26 are recommended to have the HPV vaccine. The booklet on herpes and genital warts explains HPV in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Roach — No. 1202, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-

ROACH: I’m wondering about the commercials regarding eating ice cream. The way they sound, it’s OK to eat it without fear of fat. I’m a male in his 70s, in fine health, and I am wondering if eating it is fine, but just once in a while. Thank you. — A.A. ANSWER: Ice cream has more saturated fat and sugar than is good for you. People who want to be super-healthy don’t eat ice cream at all. However, I am a believer that it’s OK to indulge yourself once in a while in something that might not be the healthiest for you. Just make sure it’s something closer to once a month than it is to once a day.

Nov. 2, 1913 Probably the largest vote ever cast at a municipal election will be in the ballot boxes when the polls close at 5:30 this evening. The candidates and friends are working hard to get out the vote and it is considered an even bet as to who will win. On the mayor’s fight, between Crozier and Goode, there has been considerable betting during the past several days and today and the friends of both are standing loyal to the end. As the ballots cast for the city offices will be counted first it is expected that the results in the city election will be known by 9 o’clock this evening. ––––– The B.Y.M.C. boys were entertained to a chicken supper at the Baptist Church last evening.

Cavs wrap up NWCC crown Sidney quarterback Jordan Fox hands off to Eric Barnes on this running play Friday at Greenville.

Greenville rallies to whip Sidney Jackets score 33 in first half, held scoreless in second GREENVILLE — Sidney put up 33 points in the first half, but did not score at all in the second, allowing the Greenville Green Wave to rally for a 50-33 win to make for a disappointing end to the Yellow Jackets’ season Friday in Greater Western Ohio Conference football. The loss ends Sidney’s season at 4-6, the second straight year for that final mark. For Greenville, it was only the second victory of the season for a final 2-8 record. Sidney took advantage of four Greenville turnovers in the first half to claim a 33-21 lead at the break. After the two teams traded two TDs apiece in the opening quarter for a 14-14 score, the Green Wave took the lead on a 15-yard screen pass on the first play of the second period, 21-14. The Jackets didn’t answer right away, but the defense pinned the Green Wave back and forced a punt. On the play, the ball was snapped over the punter’s head and Sidney recovered on the Greenville two. Quarterback Jordan Fox took it in from there, but the extra point kick was wide, leaving the score at 21-20. However, on the next possession, Darius Southern picked off a Greenville pass and returned it 69

yards before being brought down at the Green Wave 1-yard line. Fox again took it in to give the Jackets a 27-21 lead with 2:21 remaining before halftime. But Greenville wasn’t done turning the ball over, and Sidney wasn’t done taking advantage. The Green Wave ran a successful hook-andladder play to try to strike before the half, but the play ended with a fumble recovered by the Jackets. They drove to paydirt again, with Fox scoring his fourth touchdown of the first half, this one from two yards out. The PAT kick failed, but the Jackets took a 33-21 lead at the break. Greenville scored in the third quarter on a 7-yard run by Ryan Eldridge to cut the lead to 33-28. Then with 10:30 left in the final period, Clay Guillozet hit Zach Comer on a 6-yard scoring strike, and the two-point conversion made it 36-33, Greenville. The Green Wave then added two more scores in the final three minutes to turn it into a rout, both coming from Eldridge on runs of 33 and 31 yards. “We just ran out of bullets,” said Sidney coach Adam Doenges. “We capitalized on some big breaks in the first half, but we were just a little too loose and not focused

enough. And that’s my fault. I didn’t have them ready to play, and it caught up to us in the second half. But it was about as good a week 10 game as you can get for two teams not making the playoffs.” Score by quarters: Sidney 14 19 0 0—33 Greenville 14 7 7 22—50 Scoring summary: Sidney — Fox, 4-yard run (Barnes kick) Greenville — Comer, 45-yard pass from Guillozet (Bixler kick) Sidney — Cox, 72-yard pass from Fox (Barnes kick) Greenville — Eldridge, 11-yard run (Bixler kick) Greenville — Eldridge, 15-yard pass from Guillozet (Bixler kick) Sidney — Fox, 2-yard run (kick failed) Sidney — Fox, 1-yard run (Barnes kick) Sidney — Fox, 2-yard run (kick failed) Greenville — Eldridge, 7-yard run (Bixler kck) Greenville — Comer, 6-yard pass from Eldridge (Comer, pass from Eldridge) Greenville — Eldridge, 33-yard run (Bixler kick) Greenville — Eldridge, 31-yard run (Bixler kick)

MCGUFFEY — Lehman wrapped up an outright Northwest Central Conference football championship Friday night with an easy 62-26 victory over Upper Scioto Valley here in high school football action. The win ends Lehman’s regular season at 9-1 and gives the Cavs a perfect 6-0 mark in the conference. They now await their opponent Saturday in the Division VII playoffs. The Cavaliers scored 49 points in the first half, about the norm against teams they’ve played recently. It was 27-0 after one quarter . “We actually got off to a good start,” said head coach Dick Roll. “I don’t think we threw an incomplete pass in the first half. And we had three turnovers that led to scores, so we took advantage of those. We ran the ball well, and threw the ball well, and they scored on our young kids. So we’re happy.” Greg Spearman scored the first two touchdowns for the Cavs and quarterback Nick Rourke was 12-for-20 for 235

yards and three touchdowns. Score by quarters: Sidney Lehman 27 22 7 6– 62 USV 0 8 6 12– 26 Scoring sumary: SL-Greg Spearman 9 yd run (Ian Smith kick).

Minster comes up short

DELPHOS — Delphos St. John’s ended Minster’s slim hopes of landing a playoff berth and likely put itself in position to play next week with a wild 35-28 win over the Wildcats in Midwest Athletic Conference football action here Friday night. The loss ended Minster’s season at 6-4, including 6-2 in the MAC. St. John’s finishes the regular season with the exact same records, and now waits to see if Friday’s win was enough for a playoff berth. The Blue Jays were ninth in Region 24 of Division VII this week, and the top eight qualify. The two teams were deadlocked at 21-21 in the final period before the Blue Jays took control of the game, scoring on an 11-yard reverse for a 28-21 lead with 3:57 remaining in the game. Minster tried to strike back but Delphos picked off a pass and set up shop at Minster’s 12. The Blue Jays scored with 2:30 left to

make it 35-21. However, Minster would not go down easy. The combination of Josh Nixon to Eli Wolf was good enough for a 44-yard touchdown with just 1:29 left to cut the lead to a touchdown at 35-28. However, Minster had just one timeout left and needed to recover the onside kick. Delphos didn’t let that happen, and the Blue Jays were able to run out the clock. Minster opened the scoring on a 75-yard run by Sam Dues with 4:14 left in the opening quarter, but Delphos came back with a 55-yard run. The PAT failed, leaving Minster on top 7-6. AJ Huelsman then hauled in a 29-yard scoring strike from Nixon to make it 14-7, but the Blue Jays came back to tie it with a score and a two-point conversion. But with just 20 seconds remaining in the first half, Nixon found Eli Wolf from 14 yards out to give the Wildcats the lead at the half at 21-14.

Redskins cruise to 50-0 win

FORT LORAMIE — As expected the Fort Loramie Redskins rolled to an easy win over the Riverside Pirates in the final regular season football game Friday night at Loramie, 50-0. The Redskins finished the regular campaign with an 8-2 record and take second place in the Northwest Central Conference with a 5-1 mark. They now await the Region 26 pairings in the Division VII playoffs, with the first game being Saturday night. Riverside finished the season at the .500 mark, at 5-5 overall and 3-3 in the NWCC. The Redskins scored twice in the opening quarter, the first coming on a six-yard run by touchdown machine Delaunte Thornton, and the second on a touchdown pass from Tyler Kazmaier to Craig Fullenkamp. Then early in the second quarter, Logan McGee took a pitch from Kazmaier and rambled 20

yards down to the five, but on the next play the Redskins were called for holding and the ball was put back on the 16. On the next play, however, Thornton

shook free around end and reached paydirt for a 20-0 lead, the point-after sailing wide. It looked like it would stay that way at the half, especially

after the Redskins fumbled the ball away at the Riverside two on their next possession. But they forced a punt, which was blocked by committee out of the endzone for a safety, and on the ensuing kick by the Pirates, Fullenkamp returned it 65 yards for a score with 2:19 left in the half for a 29-0 bulge at the intermission. Unofficially, the Redskins had over 500 yards in total offense, and it was pretty much split evenly between the run and the pass. Loramie quarterback Tyler Kazmaier showed he’s all the way back from the injury that sidelined him for much of the season. He hit 13 of 22 passes for 253 yards in the win. “They were set up to stop the run,” said Loramie coach Matt Burgbacher. “And we took advantage early. Tyler had some nice throws and was able to complete some passes down

the field. We loosened up their defense, and in the second half went back to our running game.” Thornton added two more scores in the second half to finish with four for the Redskins.

Decisions backfire for Bengals’ Lewis MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Late in the first half, Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis took an aggressive approach. In overtime, he turned conservative. Both times his decision backfired. The Bengals rallied from a two-touchdown deficit in the second half Thursday night, but their four-game winning streak was snapped when Andy Dalton got sacked in overtime by Cameron Wake for a safety that gave the Miami Dolphins a 22-20 victory. “We’ve won some games at the end,” Lewis said. “Today we lost.” The Bengals (6-3) still enjoy a two-game lead in the AFC North, but their ranks are rapidly thinning. Defensive tackle Geno Atkins left in the second quarter with a knee injury, and Lewis said it appeared to involve the All-Pro’s anterior cruciate ligament, which would end his season. Pro Bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth (right knee) and backup linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring) missed the game. The Bengals lost because of four turnovers, and despite totaling 28 first downs and 465 yards while holding Miami to

three third-down conversions. Two decisions by Lewis also contributed. Cincinnati could have tried a 56-yard field goal in overtime, but punted to the Dolphins instead. “We had a chance, maybe,” Lewis said, “but we felt better about pinning them down.” Miami moved to midfield and then pinned Cincinnati deep, setting up the safety. Lewis made another questionable decision at the end of the first half. When the Bengals

started from their own 15 with no timeouts and 45 seconds left, he decided against running out the clock. His aggressiveness cost Cincinnati when Dalton’s pass was intercepted by Dimitri Patterson, setting up a 36-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis that put Miami up 10-3 at halftime. On third-and-10 from the 8 in overtime, the Bengals tried to throw again. Dalton retreated to the goal line and was tackled by Wake coming up the middle for the third overtime safety in NFL

Ravens looking for 12th straight over Browns CLEVELAND (AP) — There’s never been any love lost between the Ravens and Browns, NFL step-brothers with a shared history. And when the AFC North rivals get together twice each season, there’s usually more than the normal amount of pushing, shoving, trash talking — even spitting. “I didn’t like playing the Browns,” said Cleveland running back Willis McGahee, who spent four seasons with Baltimore. “We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game. They were going to fight. It was just that we were going to keep punching.” The Ravens (3-4) have been landing knockout blows for five years, winning 11 straight over the Browns (3-5). They’ll try to make it a dirty dozen wins in a row Sunday in a game both teams need to keep their division hopes alive. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Joe Flacco have never lost to the Browns, winning all 11 matchups since 2008. But neither is taking anything for granted despite the lopsided results of their recent meetings with Cleveland, which led 6-0 at half on Sept. 15 before the Ravens rallied for a 14-6 win. “It’s always a really good game,” Flacco said. “We haven’t won 11 straight on accident, and we haven’t planned on winning 11 straight. We’ve taken them one game at a time, and it just so happened that it’s worked out this way. We know that they’re a good opponent, so we don’t take them lightly in any way. “They’re a physical front. They’re a good secondary that hasn’t let up a lot of yards at all this year. We have a lot of challenges ahead of us, and that’s kind of how we look at it.” Browns cornerback Joe Haden is 0-7 against the Ravens. But without Ray Lewis or Ed Reed, they don’t seem to be as menacing as they once were. “The Ravens aren’t the Ravens of old,” Haden said. “They’re still a really good team, a division opponent, but at the same time, our team is a whole different team. It’s a different squad. We still haven’t gotten over the hump, but there’s no reason why we can’t.” Browns safety T.J. Ward, too, feels the Ravens’ 11-game stranglehold doesn’t guarantee it will become 12.

“The past 10 or whatever, those have been completely different teams, different owners, different coaches, different everything. So that’s not really what we’re worried about,” he said. “It’s the Ravens. It’s a big rivalry. We don’t like them, they don’t like us, and that’s just what it is. It’s a physical game, it’s a head knocker, close games, and I don’t see why this one would be any different.” SPIT TAKE: In their previous game, Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor accused running back Ray Rice of spitting in his face, a charge the Ravens star denied. “We were two guys jawing at each other, and I had my mouthpiece in,” Rice explained. “So when I went to say something back to him, it looked as if I projected toward him. I was saying something, he was saying something, and then, obviously, that’s what happened.” Taylor said he’s moved on from the incident, but don’t think for a second the Browns aren’t using it as motivation. COOL CAMPBELL: Browns quarterback Jason Campbell showed poise in last week’s loss at Kansas City. And although he didn’t rally the Browns to victory, the nine-year veteran has hopefully brought some continuity after Cleveland went through three QBs in four weeks. “He’s a pro and he’s been around it,” offensive coordinator Jason Campbell said. “You know what you’re getting every day from him. He’s done a great job.” BOILED RICE: Rice hasn’t been the same player since straining his left hip flexor during the third quarter against the Browns. He’s averaging just 2.8 yards on 82 carries, and the three-time Pro Bowler doesn’t have his usual burst. Still, the Browns know he can be a handful. “He has been one of the better backs in this league for the last few years,” Ward said. “Whatever’s going on with him and their offense or his injuries, you can never underestimate him.” BYE BLACKBIRD: The Ravens have been one of the league’s best teams following a bye week. Since 2002, they’re 10-1 in the week after a break and 5-0 under Harbaugh, who believes his team has the potential to do something special this season.

history. Officials immediately signaled the score, which was upheld following a replay review, ending the game with 6:38 left. “You just have to do whatever you can to get to the quarterback,” Wake said. “It couldn’t have come at a better time. How much better could it have been than to have a D-lineman seal the deal?” The Pro Bowl end totaled three sacks, and Cincinnati committed four turnovers that might have meant a difference of 17 points. Miami (4-4) won for the first time since a 3-0 start. The teams traded punts to start overtime. After Cincinnati’s Terence Newman was called for a 38-yard pass interference penalty, the Bengals dug in and forced another punt that pinned them deep, setting up the safety by Wake. “My eyes were downfield, and he was there pretty quick,” Dalton said, adding he thought he was out of the end zone. According to STATS, Minnesota’s Mike Merriweather had the first NFL overtime safety in 1989 against the Los Angeles Rams, and Chicago’s Adewale Ogunleye had the second against Tennessee in 2004.

“I don’t think anyone expected the game to end on a safety,” Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. Mike Nugent kicked a 54-yard field goal with 1:24 remaining in regulation to put the Bengals ahead, but Miami answered with a 50-yard drive, and Sturgis made a 44-yard field goal with 11 seconds left to force overtime. Brent Grimes returned an interception 94 yards for a touchdown to put the Dolphins up 17-3 midway through the third quarter, but they squandered a two-touchdown lead in the second half for the second time in five days. On Sunday in a loss at New England, they were outscored 24-0 in the final 24 minutes. Cincinnati rookie Giovani Bernard tied it on an electrifying, 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that covered perhaps twice that much ground. He started right, doubled back left, weaved up the sideline, cut back across the middle and somersaulted in the end zone, leaving Dolphins sprawled in his wake all along the way. The run took 16 seconds. At least four defenders had a shot at him, including Grimes, who missed twice — once in the backfield as the play unfolded.

Holthaus participates in UF’s White Coat Ceremony FORT LORAMIE — Andrea Holthaus, a senior pharmacy major at The University of Findlay, was among other students who recently received a crisp white lab coat at the School of Pharmacy’s White Coat Ceremony. A 2009 graduate of Fort Loramie High School, Holthaus is the daughter of Beverly and Donald Holthaus, 8012 Short Road. At UF, Holthaus is active as an Athletic Committee representative, in resi-

dence life and in volleyball. The ceremony signifies the students’ entrance into the third year of the sixyear program, which is the first year of professional courses in the School of Pharmacy. The University of Findlay is a comprehensive university with a handson approach to learning located in Findlay, Ohio, approximately 45 miles south of Toledo. For more information, visit or call 1-800-472-9502.

Storm From page 1 and she checked out damage reported in the FesslerBuxton Road area. A tree and branches were blown down there. If a tornado did touch down there, it was “very weak,” she said. Because the storm happened at night, it was hard to determine if there was a tornado, she said. A resident of Lehman Road in the southern part of the county said the storm damaged his property. Terry

Keller said part of the garage roof was ripped off and the garage door was dented inward at 8455 Lehman Road, Piqua. A kids jungle gym in back was destroyed, as was a satellite dish. The house’s siding also was damaged. High winds blew over a propane tank in the backyard, causing a gas leak, which prompted Keller and his wife, Christina, to go to a neighbor’s house until the leak was fixed.

Actress From page 1 So, the dream prevailed. Instead of pursuing a more practical path to becoming a “vet,” she now aspired to become an actor. Russia is not known for producing Hollywood or Broadway stars. Achieving this goal would have seemed daunting to many less inspired young women, but Monnin was up to the challenge. She had a plan. When she was 16 years old she applied to and was accepted to a summer arts camp at Harvard University for an eight-week campus experience that she thought would expose her to a wider world. Plus, it wouldn’t hurt to have a reference to Harvard on her college application or a job resume. She learned of a liberal arts school right here in Ohio that was highly acclaimed for its fine arts and drama programs, so she applied and was accepted to Kenyon College in Gambier. While at Kenyon, she performed in a CAPA production of “Tony and Tina’s Wedding” in Columbus, and had a leading role in “Our Town” for the Curtain Players in Westerville. These roles led her to the part of Lorna in an indy film directed and produced by Richard Nelson, called “Oracabessa.” Monnin describes it as a drama/ thriller about “a female African American grad student and a cellist on a redemptive journey to find a missing 6-year-old boy.” She is excited about its debut screening, probably to be held in Columbus sometime in December. Between her freshman and sophomore years at Kenyon, Monnin spent six weeks in New York City studying at the Michael Howard Studio Summer Conservatory. It was here she met actor Greg Mullavey, best known as Tom Hartman on the 19761978 TV series, “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.” Today, she considers Mullavey her mentor and friend, often seeking him out for guidance. On Tuesday, she will begin shooting in Cleveland on a movie titled, “Colony 52.” She is cast in the lead role of Amber. In her words, “Amber has been studying abroad for two years and

comes home to a small Ohio town (sound familiar?) to find a charismatic cult leader has taken over the town. It’s not obvious at first but when she does figure it out, trouble ensues!” Filmed by Conrad Studios with Conrad Faraj as director, “Colony 52” will be an action-packed thriller with all but one scene shot on location in the Cleveland area. In June 2013, following graduation, Monnin, with her dog, and a cousin, headed west, first to stay with a friend in Brentwood, Calif., later to her own 350-squarefoot “bachelor-size” apartment in West Hollywood. No waitress jobs for this girl as she has her own online business doing editing and writing for clients from as far away as Vermont and Australia. This type of work fits perfectly with her sometimes erratic schedules, allowing her to study scripts, memorize lines, and attend auditions. When time allows, she takes her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Nala (short for Nalani, which means “calmness of the sky” in Hawaiian) to the Pacific Palisades Park for long walks. She loves the wind and panoramic view of the sea. To date, there has been no need for an agent. There are legitimate online casting sites that actors can access on a fee basis. Networking with others in the business is another option. In the case of her current movie, “Colony 52,” the director remembered her from auditions for other projects and called her! Does she hope to one day become a “star?” It could happen. She has talent; she has prepared herself, and works hard. However, her answer was this: “I could be happy playing leads in independent films. The craft is important. I really care about the craft.” On Oct. 8, Monnin posted this on Twitter: “Sometimes you just have to hold your breath, scream, and then dance around the room at 2 a.m., because quite simply, life is awesome.” Monnin has discovered that while chasing one’s dream, life can indeed be awesome.

Charged From page 1 things close to the vest until we find out where Mr. Cole is,” he said. Police have not said how Cole died. Balling acknowledged that Cole and Wood were acquaintances. “They knew each other,” he said. Cole’s disappearance, which earlier was called “very suspicious” by police, prompted pleas by police and family members for help in finding him. There had been a report that Cole was picked up by someone in

a car, but police said that was just speculation. Family and friends had conducted searches in an effort to find Cole. Cole was reported missing Oct. 14 and the Ohio Attorney’s General’s Office added his case to its statewide alerts for missing people. Wood, who is reportedly married, has worked as a tradesman, doing home remodeling, and also as a machine operator.

, who passed away 5 years ago, on November 3, 2008

Much loved and never forgotten by wife Annette, children Diane, Jim D. and Brenda, Grandchildren and Great grandchildren. (Written by Annette, August 2013)


A smiling husband, father and grandfather, whose stature gave us the feeling of being protected and secure. With the confidence of making good decisions, we farmed and ran a business we were proud of. We raised a wonderful family together. When I look back upon our times, One thing makes me so glad. That you chose me to share with you, the precious years you had.

The Cornerstone @ 8811 opens PIQUA — Upper Valley Career Center Culinary Arts program has opened the student-operated Cornerstone @ 8811. “The juniors begin the school year with little or no experience. It takes several weeks for them to earn their ServSafe Certification and become comfortable working in the kitchen and restaurant,” said Deb Holthaus, Upper Valley CC Program Supervisor. Culinary Arts senior were part of the team that first launched the popular lunch spot in the fall of 2012. They feel a sense of pride in the restaurant, kitchen and demonstration

room which were part of the school’s recent renovation. The facilities were relocated to the south west end of the building featuring a distinct separate canopied entrance and dedicated-patron parking. The restaurant will be open to the public each Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. when school is in session through May 9. Hotlhaus says that occasionally the Cornerstone @ 8811 will have a break in the operation schedule due to school closings or at other times when the students are not available.

Main St. Diner opens There’s a new old restaurant in Sidney. Chubby’s Burritos and Legs, 1500 N. Main Ave., has different owners and a new name. In mid-October, Kit Hammett, of Sidney, purchased the eatery, expanded its menu and renamed it Main St. Diner. “I was eating there two or three times a day,” Hammett said recently. “I thought, ‘I could do a lot more with this.’ So I bought it.” It’s his first restaurant. A personal trainer for the last 46 years, he now finds himself cooking each morning to supply hungry customers with burritos and much more. “We have burgers, lasagna, apple crisp, salads, fries, chicken strips, pulled pork

sandwiches, brownies, macaroni and cheese, cheeseburgers, tater tots,” said manager Meribeth VanHoose, of Sidney. There is one other employee. “The first week was rough because it’s all new to me,” Hammett said, “but it’s doing well now, moving forward as I expected.” He doesn’t anticipate for additional changes in the near future. “Just serve good food and go with the flow,” he said of his plans. “We’re trying to serve a good product at a reasonable price. I want everyone to come and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.” The Main St. Diner is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.


Conference planned for business women CELINA — Women in Business will host Kick Up Your Heels, a women’s power conference and awards luncheon, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Romer’s Catering & Entertainment Facilities, 1100 S. Main St. Registration opens at 9 a.m. The fee is $60. Proceeds will support Women in Business’s continuing education scholarship fund.
