COLUMBUS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mitch McGouldrick, all of 11 years old, walked home from Cranbrook Elementary School to get a bite of lunch. It would be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, same as it was every other day. But the blue sedan inching its way down Upper Arlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rightmire Boulevard was about to change everything. It pulled to the curb. Then came

9< + 0?66 A/+>2/< </:9<>M >?<8 >9 :+1/ L

the knock at the door. The two officers who stood on the front stoop told Jacquelyn McGouldrick that her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B-57 bomber had gone down somewhere over Laos on Dec. 13, 1968. There had been no immediate recovery, and they had no answers. Air Force Col. Francis Jay McGouldrick Jr. officially became one of the Vietnam Warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing in action. Mitch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; now 56-year-old Mitch Guess of Dublin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; recalls how stoically her moth-

er absorbed the news: â&#x20AC;&#x153;She kept it all together. The men told us they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much. They told us we would know something soon, that more information would come quickly. We thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, the next day or two. Then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The days turned into months. The months became years. The years stretched to decades. For 45 years, the McGouldrick family waited. The most-excruciating time was when the American prisoners of war finally started

coming home. It was 1973, and no one in the McGouldrick house had ever lost hope. The four sisters recall lining up beside their mother on the couch to watch the evening news, squinting to better see the grainy footage of thousands of men as they trudged down the ramps of the transport planes that had carried them home from war. In their uniforms, the men all looked the same. The girls See PILOT | 4

Lessons in love and determination Caroline McColloch QUINCY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One of the great hallmarks of farming communities is closely-knit family. Both within families and among them, the experiences of Lisa Bambauer and her dad, Richard, are a testament to what solid values can lead to when there is enduring love and the desire to always help. Such

is the foundation that launched this persevering and determined woman into the traditionally male-dominated world of farming. When lightning struck an Auglaize County dairy barn in 1959, Richard Bambauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans changed rather abruptly from dairying with his father to agricultural studies; this led to the long-time owner-

ship of a seed, grain and fertilizer business in Pemberton. Lisa was brought into the fold of a family enduring not only the hardship of rebuilding Grandpaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barn but benefiting also from a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s values put to action. Neighbors donated hay, milled lumber from their woodland and helped one of their own reconstruct his liveli-

hood. Eventually, the fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elevator business and grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy operation became the chance for Lisa to strengthen family ties, learn about farming, then start thinking of running her own. Her formative years involved membership in a local 4-H conservation club, with projects ranging from soil studies and pond habitat to

photography. Also, a lot of time was spent hunting and fishing with Dad and Grandpa, perhaps initially showing how to push the boundaries of traditional gender roles. The walls of her large farm shop are adorned with an impressive collection of mounted buck trophies, photos of bear hunting See FARMING | 8

11, 1918, the Germans signed the Armistice, an order was issued for all firing to cease, bringing the hostilities of the First World War to an end. The day began with the laying down of arms, blowing of whistles, impromptu parades and the closing of places of business … just a few examples of the many joyous demonstrations throughout the world on this historic occasion. In November 1919, President Woodrow Wilson issued his Armistice Day proclamation. The last paragraph set the tone for future observances: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those

who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nation.” Beginning today through Veterans Day, Nov. 11, Melcher-Sowers Funeral Home is collecting new sweaters and gloves that they will deliver to local VA hospitals, VA homes and veterans service organizations. Everyone in the community is invited to support our veterans by donating sweaters and gloves at MelcherSowers Funeral Home, 646 W. High St., Piqua, phone, 937-773-1647.

Among Edison Community College representatives attending the ACCT Leadership Congress are, left to right, Cris Valdez, president; Tom Milligan, trustee; Patti Ross, senior vice president for academic affairs; Ken Monnier, vice president of engineering, Emerson Climate Technologies.

Edison leadership congress presenter PIQUA — Edison Community College trustees, administrators, staff and industry leaders gathered with nearly 2,000 of their peers at the 44th Annual Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Leadership Congress recently at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. Members of the group also contributed to the programming for the event, sharing their expertise and vision by presenting to a national audience on best practices for collaborations between community colleges and the manufacturing industry. The team from Edison included Marvella Fletcher, trustee; Darryl Mehaffie, trustee and vice chairman of the board; Tom Milligan, trustee; Jim Thompson, trustee and chairman of the board; Cris Valdez, president; Patti Ross, senior vice president for academic affairs; and Heather Lanham, executive assistant to the president. Also in attendance was Ken Monnier, vice president of engineering at Emerson Climate Technologies. Milligan, Monnier, Valdez and Ross delivered a presentation titled, “Moving Manufacturing Forward in Southwest Ohio.” “Of course I am happy to present on behalf of Edison at any level, local, regional, national, international if given a chance, because I believe so much in our mission,” Milligan said. “At this particular conference, it was stimulating to share ideas with trustees from across the country and validating to know that in the area of ‘Moving Manufacturing Forward’ through industry partnerships, the area on which we presented, we are seen as an innovator and leader.” The presentation outlined Edison’s response to the needs of manufacturers and its willingness to work with high schools, career centers, universities and industry to align

curriculum to employers’ needs. Working together with Emerson Climate Technologies and Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., Edison has piloted new internship opportunities, highlighted pathways from education to employment, and helped ensure that students are ideally prepared to step into local opportunities for employment upon graduation. “It is a real tribute to our leadership, Dr. Cris Valdez and Dr. Patti Ross in particular, and our industry partners Emerson Climate Technologies, Honda of America and others, to have been able to build meaningful programs that have resulted in degree completion and a direct pathway into the workforce for our students in such a short time,” added Milligan. “The fact that Edison can work at the speed of industry with meaningful deliverables is important to fulfilling our mission as a community college and our region’s ability to remain productive and prosperous.” Keynote speakers for the four-day conference included Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; J. Noah Brown, ACCT president and CEO; Jamie Merisotis, Lumina Foundation president and CEO; Jim Wigfall, vice president of business support for Boeing’s Shared Services Group; and LeRoy Mitchell, ACCT chairman. The 44th Annual ACCT Leadership Congress featured more than 80 educational sessions on best practices for community colleges, fundamental and advanced trustee training, and a town hall meeting dedicated to determining priorities in the governance of community college student success initiatives. With additional pre-Congress sessions attendees had the opportunity to review fundamental information and further enhance their seasoned expertise.

Trial set for man in wife’s hospital killing THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man charged with fatally shooting his wife in her hospital bed killed her out of love and will tell jurors about the heartbreak he felt over her debilitated condition, his attorney said. John Wise, of Massillon, under house arrest since

last year, goes on trial Monday and will ask for the jury’s understanding, not sympathy, attorney Paul Adamson said. The 68-year-old Wise could face life in prison if convicted of aggravated murder. Police say Wise calmly walked into his 65-yearold wife’s room at Akron General Medical Center and shot her on Aug. 4,

Congressman: Fund Wrights’ factory as park JULIE CARR SMYTH Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — A Republican congressman from Wright Brothers country is advocating national parks funding to purchase the aviation pioneers’ original manufacturing facilities in Ohio, as debate intensifies over rights to the first-in-flight title. U.S. Rep. Mike Turner has scheduled an appearance Monday in Dayton alongside Amanda Wright Lane of the Wright Family Foundation to discuss efforts to purchase the Wright Company Factory buildings and include them in Dayton’s aviation history park. The buildings are the

first U.S. facilities specifically designed and built to manufacture airplanes. Turner said he worked in 2009 to include language in the Omnibus Public Land Management Act that would expand the boundary of the Dayton Aviation National Historic Park to include the factory. This year, he wants the purchase included among National Park Service projects in the federal budget for fiscal 2015. Besides Lane, Brady Kress of Dayton History is also slated to join in Monday’s event. The funding push comes amid a renewed dispute over the Wright Brothers’ role in aviation history.

2012. Barbara, his wife of 45 years, died the next morning. A week earlier, she had suffered triple cerebral aneurysms that left her unable to speak. More than a year later, Wise “is doing OK, but things are never going to be great for him,” Adamson said during the final week of trial preparation. “He’s stable, but he’s still

grieving, I guess is the best way to describe him, for the loss of this life,” he said. Those who know Wise described him as a loving husband devastated by his wife’s sudden medical emergency. Some called it a mercy killing by a loving husband. But that legal defense isn’t an option in Ohio, and Adamson said he would

argue an insanity defense based on severe depression. “Our burden there is to establish that he was suffering from some severe mental disease or defect at the time he committed the offense, and as a result he didn’t understand the wrongfulness of what he did,” Adamson said. “Now he did it out of love, but he wasn’t thinking rationally when he did

it.” Prosecutors declined to discuss any aspect of the case ahead of the trial. Wise intends to testify but won’t appeal to jurors for sympathy, Adamson said. “We know there may be sympathy for him and there may be others who feel just the opposite. That’s not the crux of our case,” Adamson said.

Residents worry about plant’s closing BRUCE SCHREINER Associated Press

LOUISA, Ky. (AP) — For decades, the nearby Big Sandy power plant did more than keep the lights on — it supplied this Appalachian town with a bounty of tax revenue and some of the best-paying jobs around as it converted regional coal into electricity. Massive piles of coal are still stacked outside the Big Sandy complex, but now its prospects are dim. Kentucky Power Co., which operates the two-unit Big Sandy complex in Lawrence County, plans to close the larger 800-megawatt unit in 2015. Dozens of prime jobs will be lost in a county of 16,000 people with little other industry and a jobless rate around 10 percent. “It’s bad and it’s going to get worse,” County Attorney Mike Hogan said. Mom-and-pop stores lining the

small downtown worry the fallout will hurt business. The school district is bracing for a potentially big loss of revenue as an economic mainstay prepares to downsize in the hilly county across the Big Sandy River from West Virginia. In a deal touted by environmentalists and approved recently by utility regulators, Kentucky Power will pump more than $1.1 million into the area in coming years to try to soften the setback. Regulators with the Kentucky Public Service Commission can’t recall another instance when a utility doled out economic aid to an area hit with the loss of a utility plant in the state, said PSC spokesman Andrew Melnykovych. The PSC can’t unilaterally order such economic development payments. Kentucky Power agreed to offer up the economic development aid, and by doing so opened the door for the PSC to review the

amount. The regulators more than doubled the contribution. The money is earmarked for economic development efforts, but in an impoverished region coping with the decline of the coal industry, local officials are skeptical the contribution will stimulate much growth. “You can do all the feasibility studies you want,” Hogan said. “There’s not any industry going to relocate here that’s going to pay those kinds of wages.” Wayne T. Rutherford, judgeexecutive in Pike County in the heart of eastern Kentucky’s coal country, said Kentucky Power’s top executives had “sold out our region and its people,” with a “stamp of approval” from the Public Service Commission. The decision to mothball the coalfired unit “now falls on those of us who are left to deal with the economic ramifications,” Rutherford said.

Pilot From page 1 peace was brokered to hope that he would be among them. “We would sit there and watch for what seemed like hours. Waiting and wondering.” And so it was with shock, relief and more than a little disbelief when, decades later, about 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 3, Mitch spoke to the mortuary-affairs officer at Dover Air Force Base. There had been an extensive dig last year, and

they found something. And they had DNA to match. “He said they had a positive ID,” Mitch said. She called her sisters one by one, and she told them all simply: It is over. There remain 1,644 names on the Department of Defense’s MIA/POW rolls from the Vietnam War. The government has categorized 599 of them as “no further pursuit.” That means officials have determined that the service member is dead and no remains can be recovered. But for each of the others, there probably is still someone, somewhere,

clinging to hope. Stories like the McGouldricks’ ripple through the POW/MIA community, said Liz Flick, a regional co-coordinator based in Ohio for the National League of POW/MIA Families. “All of the families are always grateful to hear the news of someone else’s loved one, and they think, ‘Maybe next time, it will be us,’” Flick said. Over the years, U.S. administrations have attached varying levels of importance to the search for prisoners of war and the recovery of the remains of the missing. Critics say that, especially as time goes by, the risk of the missions is too great, the cost too high, the payoff too little. It all makes Flick cringe. “Too little?” she asked. “You tell that to the McGouldricks.” The latest news from the Department of Defense said there would be four ventures into Vietnam to look for missing servicemen in this fiscal year, each one requiring 95 American personnel. The next trip is scheduled to begin on Nov. 4. It is unclear, because of the federal government’s shutdown,

whether that will go on. Calls and emails went unreturned. Flick hopes that the mission takes place. After all, she said, they aren’t only for the missing. “This means something to each of our active-duty personnel, too,” she said. “It says to them that if something ever happens, we will not leave you behind.” There was little about Col. Francis McGouldrick that didn’t scream Air Force. A career military officer, he demanded order, and he commanded respect. The McGouldricks were transferred to a new post pretty much every four years. Colorado, Texas, Japan. They’d been all over. In 1964, they landed, quite literally, at Lockbourne Air Force Base (now Rickenbacker) in Columbus. As part of his duties, McGouldrick taught air science at Ohio State University and was an Air Force ROTC commander, overseeing Angel Flight, a special drill team for women. He adored his four daughters, and he doted on his wife. “Daddy was so great with all of us,” said

Megan Genheimer of Dublin. She was 12 when her father’s plane went down. “He was so strict, but he was such a daddy. He was so loving. We were very lucky.” Yet the McGouldrick girls were raised with certain expectations. There was no sleeping in at this house, even on Saturdays. “As soon you are old enough to get out of your bed, you are old enough to make your bed,” Megan said. And don’t even think about answering the phone with a hello. It was always, (Captain. Major. Whatever rank he held) McGouldrick’s quarters. This is so and so … As Megan recalls it with a laugh: “We had to say our name so that if anyone ever reported we’d said something wrong, Daddy would know who it was.” Devout Catholics, they never missed a weekly Mass at St. Timothy on Thomas Lane. And their father never went a day without an iced coffee in the morning (a love that Mitch inherited) or an evening without a single Red Stripe beer (Marri lays claim to sharing her father’s love of a cold one).

checked every face. Each one looked like Daddy. The sisters would point and nudge one another and ask: Is that him? That one, right there. Is that Daddy? “It is still so crystal clear in my mind,” said Marri Petrucci, who was just 4 when the plane her father co-piloted went down in a crash with another U.S. aircraft over Laos’ Savannakhet Province. But she was old enough by the time



Nation/World Today in History The Associated Press

Today is Monday, Nov. 4, the 308th day of 2013. There are 57 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 4, 1942, during World War II, Axis forces retreated from El Alamein in North Africa in a major victory for British forces commanded by Lt. Gen. Bernard Montgomery. On this date: In 1862, inventor Richard J. Gatling received a U.S. patent for his rapid-fire Gatling gun. In 1884, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected to his first term as president, defeating Republican James G. Blaine. In 1922, the entrance to King Tutankhamen’s tomb was discovered in Egypt. In 1924, Nellie T. Ross of Wyoming was elected the nation’s first female governor to serve out the remaining term of her late husband, William B. Ross. In 1939, the United States modified its neutrality stance in World War II, allowing “cash and carry” purchases of arms by belligerents, a policy favoring Britain and France. In 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected president, defeating Democrat Adlai Stevenson. The highly secretive National Security Agency came into existence. In 1979, the Iran hostage crisis began as militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran, seizing its occupants; for some, it was the start of 444 days of captivity. In 1980, Ronald Reagan won the White House as he defeated President Jimmy Carter by a strong margin. In 1987, 6-year-old Elizabeth (Lisa) Steinberg was pronounced dead at a New York City hospital in a child-abuse case that sparked national outrage; her illegal adoptive father, Joel Steinberg, served nearly 17 years behind bars for manslaughter. In 1991, Ronald Reagan opened his presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif.; in attendance were President George H.W. Bush and former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford and Richard Nixon — the first-ever gathering of five past and present U.S. chief executives. In 1995, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated by a right-wing Israeli minutes after attending a festive peace rally. Ten years ago: Firefighters in San Diego County contained the biggest and deadliest of Southern California’s wildfires. Following a conservative outcry over a madefor-TV movie about former President Ronald Reagan, CBS scrapped plans to televise “The Reagans,” sending it off to the Showtime cable network instead.

Alligator wants to go on trip CHICAGO (AP) — A small alligator found under an escalator at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport has left authorities puzzled. A maintenance worker discovered the alligator, which is about a foot long, on Friday in Terminal 3, Chicago Police spokesman Jose Estrada said Sunday. An officer captured the reptile by putting a trash can over it. “We don’t know where it came from or how long it’d been residing in the airport facilities,” Estrada said. “It’s one of those random incidents.” The gator is now being cared for by the Chicago Herpetological Society. “It was in pretty bad shape,” said Jason Hood, the group’s president. “We’re trying to get it healthy and find a place for it.” He said the gator would likely head to an out-of-state alligator farm once authorities give the organization the all-clear to release the animal. No one was injured.

Gunman acted alone in LAX shooting TAMI ABDOLLAH Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 23-year-old charged as the gunman in the deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport told authorities at the scene that he acted alone and had been dropped off by a friend, a law enforcement official who has been briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press exclusively Sunday. Authorities do not believe the friend knew that Paul Ciancia, the man charged in the attack, planned to open fire inside LAX’s Terminal 3 just moments later, killing one Transportation Security Administration officer and wounding four others, including two more TSA workers, said the official, who is not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and requested anonymity. Ciancia was dropped off in a black Hyundai and was not a ticketed passenger. He was

able to respond to investigators’ questions at the scene Friday, the official said. Ciancia, an unemployed motorcycle mechanic who grew up in the small, blue-collar town of Pennsville, N.J., was shot four times and was under 24-hour armed guard at the hospital, the law enforcement official told the AP. Ciancia was sedated for medical reasons, the official said, adding that one gunshot to the mouth blew a molar out of the suspect’s jaw Federal prosecutors charged Ciancia on Saturday with murder of a federal officer and committing violence at an international airport. The charges could qualify him for the death penalty. In court documents and interviews, authorities spelled out a chilling chain of events, saying Ciancia walked into the airport, pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle from his duffel bag and fired repeatedly at pointblank range at 39-year-old TSA officer Gerardo I. Hernandez, killing him.

Lighted pylons at the Century Boulevard entrance to Los Angeles International Airport, which normally flash in a multicolored sequence, shine a steady blue Saturday evening in honor of Gerardo Hernandez, the Transportation Security Administration officer slain at an LAX terminal Friday. He is the first TSA officer to die in the line of duty in the history of the 12-year-old agency, created in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A police entry checkpoint, part of an increased visible police presence, is seen in the foreground.

He then fired on at least two other uniformed TSA employees and an airline passenger, who all were wounded, before airport police shot him as panicked passengers cowered in stores and restaurants, authorities said.

It wasn’t clear why Ciancia targeted TSA officers, but what he left behind made it clear he intended to kill any of them who crossed his path, FBI Agent in Charge David L. Bowdich said.

Poll: Elderly nix Social Security changes MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — Raise the age at which you can begin collecting full Social Security benefits? Older Americans say no. They also veto reductions in the cost-of-living increase. But a poll finds support among those 50 and older for raising the cap on earnings that are taxed to fund the Social Security program so higher-income workers pay more. The survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds passionate opposition to any change in the way Social Security benefits are calculated that could result in smaller annual raises. Some 62 percent of respondents expressed opposition to such a pro-

posal, compared with 21 percent who supported it. The chained CPI, or consumer price index, has been proposed as a new way of calculating the cost-of-living adjustment, but it would reduce raises. “I really think it’s a sacred cow,” said Margie Nugent, a 55-year-old farmer from North Umberland, Pa. “They shouldn’t touch it.” Some 58 percent oppose gradually raising the age when retirees qualify for full benefits, while 29 percent support it. About one-third believe people should be eligible for full benefits before 65. Only 10 percent say full eligibility should come after 67, the top eligibility age under current law. “I contributed to it. It’s my money,” said Joan McDonald, 65, of Annapolis, Md., who

retired as an accountant this year and began collecting Social Security. “The plan was, ‘Contribute this and you get this.’ You can’t change the rules.” Survey respondents showed more willingness to support Social Security proposals that would mostly impact those with higher incomes. Forty-one percent expressed support for reducing benefits for seniors with higher incomes, compared with 44 percent who opposed the proposal. Whites were much more supportive of reducing benefits for high-earning seniors than minorities. Changes to Social Security are on the horizon because the trust funds that support the massive retirement and disability program are

CAIRO (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday tried to reassure America’s Arab friends that the United States will not allow them to be attacked “from outside,” in an apparent warning to Iran. He specifically mentioned Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan and Egypt as nations, alongside unspecified “others,” that the U.S. will defend. Those others likely would include Israel, the strongest U.S. ally in the region. “The United States will be there for the

defense of our friends and our allies,” Kerry told reporters in Cairo. “We will not allow those countries to be attacked from outside. We will stand with them.” Kerry spoke during the first stop on his trip to the Middle East, Europe and North Africa. After Egypt, he headed later Sunday to Saudi Arabia, where the biggest rifts with the Obama administration have emerged. Saudi officials have complained that the United States did not follow through on its threat to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad with military strikes for his government’s use of chemical weap-

ons. The Saudis also have watched warily as President Barack Obama has opened a tentative rapprochement with Iran, Saudi Arabia’s archrival. Kerry acknowledged U.S. divisions with Gulf nations over Syria and Iran, but he played down those differences. He said some countries do differ with U.S. “tactics” in Syria. “There may some differences on a tactic here and there,” he said. But he said they all agree on the goal of ending the fighting and forming an interim government. “We can have a difference on a policy, on the tactics of the policy,” he said. “For instance,

Egypt changes venue for Morsi trial CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities on Sunday moved the trial of the ousted Islamist president to a new location at another end of the capital, a move apparently aimed at thwarting mass rallies planned by the Muslim Brotherhood in his support when it opens on Monday. Facing charges of incitement of violence with 14 others in connection to clashes last December, Mohammed Morsi has been held at an undisclosed location since his July 3 overthrow by the military. The trial will be his first public appearance since then, possibly enflaming an already tense political atmosphere as animosity between Morsi’s Islamist supporters and Egypt’s security establishment steadily deepens. “For (the Islamists) it will be like taking revenge on the police and the military,” said lawyer Khaled Abu-Bakr, representing three victims of the December clashes. “I really hope that no blood is spilled tomorrow,” he added. The change of the venue was announced at a tumultuous news conference by appeals court judge Medhat Idris, who threw his statement in the air and stormed out of the room when Morsi supporters shouted in protest at the change. He later told The Associated Press by telephone that the trial

will not be aired live. Other details about the proceedings, including where Morsi will be held during them, remain secret. A security official said Morsi will probably be taken back to the place he has been held instead of being transferred to a normal prison after the first session, for fear his supporters would turn the prison into a “focal point of endless protests.” The new venue is a heavily fortified police academy in an eastern Cairo suburb, already used for the trial of another former president — Hosni Mubarak — toppled in a 2011 uprising. He is accused of failing to stop the killing of protesters. Egypt witnessed one of its worst bouts of violence in decades on Aug. 14, when security forces violently cleared protest camps set up by Morsi supporters, sparking days of unrest that left more than 1,000 dead. Since then, violent incidents have multiplied: a suicide car bomber tried to assassinate Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim in September, and dozens of members of the security forces have been killed in a string of drive-by shootings, explosions and car bombs. Churches have been torched, and in an attack in Cairo last month, five Copts and one Muslim were killed in drive-by shooting at a church.

What’s ahead for Christie? STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — A second term all but assured, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is casting himself as an inclusive Republican who transcends political lines and a pragmatic leader whose results-oriented approach offers valuable lessons for dysfunctional party leaders in Washington. “We need to send a message to all of America that the only way our state and our country gets better is if people work together across the aisle,” Christie said during a rally in the campaign’s waning days at an Elks Lodge packed with pro-Christie Democrats. “My job is to be the CEO of this state, not to be some ideologue,” he added. It’s a closing message that doubles as the opening argument for a prospective presidential run. But a resounding victory Tuesday in a Democraticleaning state over a littleknown and underfunded state senator, as polls suggest is likely, doesn’t auto-

matically translate into success at the national level. Democrats and Republicans agree that Christie always was positioned to win big in his first re-election test. Challenger Barbara Buono has struggled to attract support from even her party’s most devoted allies. Signaling how little confidence she has inspired in the party, the Democratic Governors Association, which is designed to help Democrats win governor’s races, spent less than $5,000 on the New Jersey contest while pouring more than $6 million into the Virginia election, also Tuesday. Other would-be Christie critics shied away from New Jersey, giving the incumbent little resistance as he sells himself as an electable GOP leader with particular appeal among women and minorities, groups that Republicans elsewhere often struggle to attract. Christie’s advisers suggest that would be his pitch during any future national campaign.

Presidential son speaks in Troy TROY — When First Lady Betty Ford was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1974, she broke new ground in taking her battle public. Her courageous spirit in dealing with the cancer brought widespread public awareness of a health challenge that was a “closet disease,” her son, Steve Ford, said during the annual McGraw Cancer Awareness Symposium Oct. 24 at the Crystal Room in Troy. Betty Ford learned of her possible breast cancer within 30 days of Gerald Ford’s taking office following the resignation of Richard Nixon. “There was very little awareness of it then,” Ford said. “They (the president and first lady) purposely discussed were they going make it public or keep it private, as so many women did. I remember those images of them standing there holding hands, say-

ing, ‘We are going to take the public shame off of this disease.’” At the time, the stigma and fear were “so great, women actually committed suicide than face breast cancer,” he said. “It was a closet disease and here was a first lady going to go in for surgery.” Ford said his mother said she never felt the psychic wound, that feeling of “being mutilated” by surgery. Instead, he said, she felt much supported by her family and her husband. There also was a huge public outpouring, Ford recalled. Betty Ford received 50,000 letters and cards from women around the world saying, “Thank you Mrs. Ford for helping take the shame off this disease,” he said. Gerald Ford received cards from men, thanking him for standing by his wife, and showing them how to be supportive of their wives. Men

Dear Readers: Here is this week’s Sound Off, about businesses and their doors: “One of my biggest peeves is when businesses have double doors at their entrance, but they unlock only one side. It is so frustrating (and embarrassing) to pull or push on a

door that won’t open. I wonder how many people get hurt smacking into locked doors. If businesses have double doors, they should unlock both sides. — Jimmy in Houston” Many agree with you, including me!

wrote telling Betty Ford about their wives’ battles. Ford shared with the audience photos of the Ford family and stories of the chaotic times that led to his father’s unexpected presidency. He also discussed challenges the family faced with his mother’s breast cancer and, later, her public discussion of her personal battle with alcoholism. His mother, Ford said, “was certainly ahead of her time.” He described her as open minded and someone who would speak her mind. “What she did, the awareness for cancer, just happened … to fall in her lap. She didn’t think she did anything special,” he said. Steve Ford was a teen when his father became president. He left Washington at age 18, first to pursue a life as a cowboy. Not long later, he embarked on an acting career that has spanned movies and TV shows including the day-

time drama “The Young and the Restless.” Ford also tours as a motivational speaker, including visiting schools to talk with students about his own battle with alcoholism. If his mother were alive today, Betty Ford would be “thrilled” at the acceptance and awareness of breast cancer. “On the other side of it, there is almost a fear that there is a feeling like ‘It must be all taken care of,’ which it isn’t,” Ford said. “There is all of this awareness, but behind that awareness you have to remind people there is still work to be done.” The Cancer Awareness Symposium, in its 13th year, was sponsored by the UVMC Foundation and the UVMC Cancer Care Center and made possible by a grant from the McGraw Family Fund of the Troy Foundation and a UVMC Foundation grant.

ASHVILLE (AP) — Property deeds for Ohio’s 200-year-old farms bear the signatures of some of the nation’s first presidents: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Having a deed signed by President Jefferson and Secretary of State Madison doesn’t faze James “Bob” Fagan, who came by his 227acre farm in Fairfield County

by way of his great-greatgreat-grandfather, Luke Decker. “I live in a museum. That’s a fact,” said Fagan, who goes by his middle name. “There’s an awful lot of history here. We’re still discovering things that show us what it was like way back in the beginning.” Ohio has certified 65 farms as “bicentennial” — having been in one family for at least 200 years. The Ohio Department of Agriculture recognized owners of some

of those farms at county fairs this summer and fall. The goal of the Ohio Century and Bicentennial Farm program is to recognize farming families for their agricultural contributions, said Cindy Winegardner Shy, the program’s manager. “Their stories are historically rich and compelling, and we know that they are the basis for today’s agricultural industry,” she said in an email.

From page 1 in Maine or stringers of fish at a Canadian lake. As often happens with serious hunters, an appreciation for the importance of wildlife habitat leads to a passion for conservation, something Lisa has invested in on all her farms. Even outside of hunting, many farmers are likewise sensitive to that important balance between using land and keeping it healthy. Ms. Bambauer has been named the 2013 Cooperator of the Year by the Logan Soil and Water Conservation District for her use of practices employed under the Conservation Stewardship Program. Sponsored by the federal USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, a comprehensive farm plan is given financial incentive to establish and maintain a wide variety of land use management methods. These are all aimed at preserving soil structure and fertility, protecting water quality, and providing wildlife habitat. Natural resource conservation is an investment in the long-term capacity of farmland to maintain its productivity, while still providing an agricultural livelihood. This is the philosophy behind federal policies and programs used in partnership with local soil and water conservation districts across the nation. Established in 2006, the practices in Lisa’s farm plan are related mainly to grassland habitat and careful management of fertilizers and pesticides. She uses no-till methods (meaning there is no plowing; seeds

are planted with special machinery). This preserves the soil’s physical structure, a critical property for water infiltration and biological activity. Bluebird houses and acreages planted in native grasses provide habitat for songbirds, quail, pheasant, and deer. The combine is equipped with GPS capability used for yield monitoring. When combined with grid sampling, these technologies map variations in soil fertility; the information is then used to determine corresponding variations in fertilizer application. This improved precision saves on input costs, and lessens the likelihood of fertilizer runoff that would harm water quality. Special nozzles and foam markers on the end of spray booms, when combined with GPS tracking, better control chemical applications by reducing over spray or wasteful overlaps during the spraying operation. Today, Lisa works three farms: land purchases that began in the early 1990s now comprise more than 200 tillable acres. She owns, operates and maintains all the equipment, putting to use the mechanical know-how learned from working alongside her father and grandfather. Also part of the business is “custom” planting and harvesting for other landowners, which is not the same as cash rent or farming on shares, whereby an operator is involved in purchasing inputs and selling harvested grain. With traditional roles reversed,

Lisa handles all the major responsibilities for planning, purchases, decisions, maintenance and operation, while her father, obviously brimming with pride for such an accomplished daughter, is the “gofer,” assisting with hauling grain, moving equipment, and the like. So too with young helpers Travis and Tyler Wismar, sons of long-time family friends. Now full-time farming since 2012, Lisa is in her 10th year of farming as a business, the start of which in 2003 grew out of a close relationship with a long-time friend of the family; one who dispensed valuable advice and was willing to give the aspiring farmer a chance to rent land. Renting land is something that has underscored discrimination still existing at many levels of society and professional life. “A lot of landowners around here still don’t want to rent land to a woman farmer,” she stated flatly. She also noted how important it has been to learn who to talk to at the parts counter, that is, those who give her credit for knowing what she’s talking about. Having overcome frustrating obstacles, Bambauer reflected that “farming is kind of like going to Vegas; it’s a gamble - there’s a lot things you can’t control.” Perhaps that is stating the obvious, but with such uncertainty in one’s livelihood comes her courage of conviction: “Without my faith, I could not do what I do.” Indeed, uncertainty and faith

seem to go hand in hand, a combination not so uncommon among successful people - the doers and encouragers of this world. Or, as Garrison Kiellor would put it, “The strength to do what must be done.” Perhaps too, creative outlets are also a help. Besides building custom wood frames for the many photos and puzzles she likes to put together, Lisa designs greeting cards, works in stained glass and restores antique furniture: “There doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to do all that I love to do,” she says.

Residing in a beautiful log home she built in 1998, with a warehousesized shed full of firewood for the outdoor furnace, she is quick to credit her success to the great love over the years from family and friends who are essentially extended family. She has also gleaned valuable lessons from watching parents and grandparents make it through tough times as farmers, pointing out that it’s the kind of experience city folk could not know. And to think it all started with Grandpa in the milking house… family values indeed.

My husband was charged with a DUI, went through everything that was required and decided to stop drinking. I am very proud of him.

Odds and Ends NEW YORK (AP) — “Star Wars” and “Trainspotting” star Ewan McGregor will make his Broadway debut next year in a revival of Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Thing.” Roundabout Theatre Company said Thursday that McGregor will play the unhappily married Henry in the play under the direction of Sam Gold. Previews begin next October at the American Airlines Theatre. McGregor was last seen on the stage in 2008 in London starring as

Iago (ee-AY’-goh) opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Othello at the Donmar Warehouse. He also starred alongside Jane Krakowski, Douglas Hodge and Jenna Russell in the original Donmar Warehouse production of “Guys and Dolls” at the Piccadilly Theatre in London. McGregor will be seen next in John Wells’ film adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer- and Tony-winning play “August: Osage County” opposite Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.

Lady Cavs fall in regional finals 1-0 loss to Badin ends season at 17-2-1, one short of state Rob Kiser Civitas Media

LEBANON — It didn’t end the way the Lehman girls soccer team had hoped — with a 1-0 loss to Hamilton Badin in the Division III regional championship Saturday night at Lebanon. But the legacy left by the Lady Cavaliers and seniors Jordi Emrick, Lauren Goettemoeller, Karly Baird, Taylor Lachey, Marla Schroeder, Olivia S ehlhorst , Madeline Franklin, Jenna Kronenberger and Grace Frantz will be a tough one for future teams to match. After advancing to the district finals a year ago, they took it two steps farther this year. They went where no Shelby County soccer team had ever gone before. Lehman outscored opponents 82-8 this season, and with Frantz recording 13 shutouts in 20 games and the Lady Cavaliers finished with a 17-2-1 mark. “They were up front about it after last season,” Schroeder said. “They had the courage

to come out and say their goal was to win the state title. I told them at the time, it is better to set your goals high and come up short, than set your goal for mediocrity and achieve it.” On Saturday night a Badin team that is now 13-4-4 and had been tested in every game they played this season, dominated the first half. Yet, Lehman nearly escaped it even. The Lady Rams had eight shots to the Lady Cavaliers’ one. But that one shot almost gave Lehman the lead with 26:55 remaining in the half. After Ashley Keller stole the ball deep in Joan Schroeder photo the Lady Rams’ end, she crossed to Sara Fuller, Lehman’s Sara Fuller (13) and Ashley Keller (17) challenge Hamilton Badin’s Bri Snowden for the ball in Division III Regional final girls whose shot was just wide. soccer action at Lebanon Saturday night.

Defending champs end Loramie’s season Ken Barhorst Civitas Media

TIPP CITY – Marion Local volleyball coach Amy Steininger seems certain her girls will be ready when the Division IV State Volleyball Tournament gets underway on Thursday, because she knows the competition probably can’t get much tougher than it was in the regional tournament at Tipp City. Two County squads, first Jackson Center in the semifinals, then Fort Loramie Saturday in the championship, tested the top-ranked Lady Flyers in a big way. And the fact that they survived to play another day gives Steininger plenty of reason to be confident. “We really got tested,” said the coach. “Every year, this regional tournament is so strong, and making it out of here is really an accomplishment. “Fort Loramie is a fantastic team,” she added. “They have it all, great setting, great hitting, height… We knew we would have to play well.” The Lady Flyers won in three games, but they were three tough ones. The first game was a war,

with Marion coming away with a 25-23 win. The Lady Flyers controlled things more in the second game, winning 25-16, but they had to come from behind to take the third game 25-21. The loss ended another outstanding season for the Lady Redskins at 23-5. Marion Local is now 26-1 and takes on undefeated McComb Thursday at 4 p.m. at The Nutter Center in the D-IV state semifinals. Marion will be looking to repeat as the small-school champions. “I thought the game came down to a lot of broken plays,” said Loramie coach John Rodgers. “They made them and we didn’t. On the long rallies, they ended up with the point. You have to hand it to Marion Local. But I’m so proud of our girls, and these seniors. They have created a program for us.” Fort Loramie went out to a 5-2 lead to start the first game before things tightened up and stayed that way to the end. The Lady Redskins led 20-19 when Marion standout Gina Kramer’s kill evened it up. Then a Loramie hit that went wide, a block on Kelly Turner, and

another kill by Kramer made it 23-20. But back came the Lady Redskins. Marion was called for an illegal hit, then Darian Rose got a kill, followed by a Loramie block to make it 23-23. But Marion’s Claire Wuebker got a kill, then Loramie couldn’t handle a serve and the game was over. “When we played them during the season, we lost the first two games, then came back and won,” said Steininger. “But that was big to win that first game today, especially mentally. It just gives you a little pick-me-up.” And the Lady Flyers carried that over into the second game, leading 8-1 early and 13-7 before Loramie rallied to cut it to 15-14 on a kill by Ashley Pleiman. But Marion scored the next three, and after Loramie cut it to 18-15, scored six in a row to make it 24-15. It ended on a kill by Emily Mescher. The third game was close early, but the Lady Redskins opened up an 11-6 lead at one point. A Turner kill put Loramie up 15-13. Marion reeled off five in a row to take an 18-15 lead but Loramie again charged back. A kill

by Rose put Loramie up 21-20, but then Loramie was called for a violation on a serve to tie the score. A Loramie block went wide and an ace followed to give Marion a 23-21 lead, and the Lady

Flyers scored the next two on a block and a kill to win 25-21. Kramer was strong at the net for Marion, finishing with 15 kills. Fort Loramie got 10 kills from County Player of

Browns end long losing streak to Ravens

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns punched the AFC North’s biggest bully in the mouth. The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens are wobbling. Jason Campbell threw three touchdown passes — two to Davone Bess — and the Browns ended an 11-game losing streak against Baltimore, beating the Ravens 24-18 on Sunday. Campbell’s 3-yard pass to Bess on fourth down with three minutes left helped the Browns (4-5) seal their first win over Baltimore since 2007. A week ago, Bess dropped a pass in a similar situation in the closing minutes of a loss at Kansas City. The Ravens (3-5) lost their third straight and didn’t win in the week following a bye for the first time in six tries under coach John Harbaugh. Baltimore’s Joe Flacco had a pair of TD passes to rookie Marlon

Brown, but the Super Bowl MVP couldn’t rally the Ravens, who made too many mistakes and are in danger of missing the playoffs. Making his second straight start after Brandon Weeden was benched, Campbell completed 23 of 35 passes for 262 yards. The nine-year veteran was at his best in the closing minutes, when the Browns ran 6:30 off the clock to finish off the Ravens, who have lost four of five. Campbell, who briefly left the game in the first half with a rib injury, evaded pressure before making his big completion to Bess and later alertly flipped the ball to running back Chris Ogbonnaya to set up Billy Cundiff’s 22-yard field goal with 14 seconds left to put the Browns ahead by six. The Ravens had one last chance, but running back Ray Rice was tackled near midfield as the Browns beat Baltimore for

the first time since Flacco and Harbaugh arrived. Browns wide receiver Greg Little had seven catches for 122 yards. Flacco finished 24 of 41 for 250 yards, but Baltimore’s offense sputtered most of the game against Cleveland’s vastly improved defense. Down 21-10 and running out of time, Flacco connected with Brown for a 7-yard TD with 12:09 left and then hit him again for the 2-point conversion to cut Cleveland’s lead to three. Tandon Doss, who earlier fumbled away a punt, set up the score with a 36-yard return that sparked the Ravens. But it was the Browns who made the big plays in the closing minutes, none more important than Bess’ grab as coach Rob Chudzinski went for it on fourth down with 3:12 left.

The Browns capitalized on a muffed punt by Doss to open a 21-10 lead in the third as Campbell threw a 4-yard TD pass to Gary Barnidge with 5:11 left. Baltimore’s defense, missing Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, was uncharacteristically confused during the sequence as the Ravens were penalized for having 12 men on the field and Barnidge was able to slip away from the line uncovered. After looking dysfunctional for most of the first half, the Ravens came alive in the final minute and pulled to 14-10 on Flacco’s 19-yard TD pass to Brown, an undrafted free agent, with nine seconds left. Campbell’s second TD pass to Bess gave the Browns a 14-3 lead in the second quarter. On 3rd-and-3 from the 20, Campbell a hit a wide-open Bess over the middle and the wide receiver did the rest, faking out cornerback Lardarius Webb at

the 10 before sprinting into the end zone and then celebrating by slapping hands with Browns fans reaching over the railing. A week ago, Bess had a hard time finding any friends in Cleveland. His critical fumble on a punt return and a dropped pass in the final minutes denied the Browns any chance of rallying to upset the unbeaten Chiefs. Bess, who entered the game tied for the league lead in drops, didn’t make any excuses for the miserable performance and vowed to atone for his mistakes. In the first quarter, Bess caught a 1-yard TD pass from Campbell, fighting off two defenders to haul in the throw at the goal line after Chudzinski rolled the dice and went for it on 4th-and-goal. The Ravens trimmed Cleveland’s lead to 7-3 on Justin Tucker’s 51-yard field goal.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, November 4, 2013


Minster girls 5th, Russia 7th at state COLUMBUS — Russia cross country coach Doug Foster couldn’t have been happier for his team. And Lady Raider junior Emily Borchers and Lehman sophomore Caroline Heitmeyer both earned All-Ohio honors and made it on the podium at the D-III state cross country meet Saturday at National Trail Raceway. The Lady Raiders finished seventh as a team, just five points behind Sugarcreek Garaway. “I am really happy for the girls,” Foster said. “We were hoping for top five, but these girls have had an amazing year. This is the first race we lost since the Tiffin Carnival early in the season.” Borchers ran in the top ten the entire race in earning All-Ohio honors for the second straight season, taking seventh in 19:05.95. “I was really happy with my race and I am hoping the team did well,” Borchers said immediately after the race. “I wanted to improve on last year and I did that. It was really crowded at the start. It was tough conditions and there were a lot of good runners. I did my best to stay up there.” “Emily ran a great race,” Foster said. “She hadn’t been beaten since the Tiffin Carnival, but we knew there were a lot of good runners in the race. We knew the girl that won and the two Coldwater girls were going to be hard to beat. We thought she had a chance at the top five. “We told her to stay as close as she could and she ran a great race. The rest of the team all ran well.” Heitmeyer went from disappointment to elation at the end of the race after finishing 16th. “I thought it was top 15 that got on the podium and a girl passed me at the end,” Heitmeyer said. “So, I was really disappointed. Then I found it was 16 and I was really happy. That was my goal to get on the podium. Lehman coach Bill Fuller was ecstatic with Heitkamp. “As a sophomore first year runner, Caroline getting to the state championship podium is phenomenal,” he said. “She looked strong and comfortable throughout the race moving steadily up

from 22nd at the 1600 meter split to 14th at the 3200 meter mark and hanging in to pull away in the final 400 meters to gain the coveted 16th place finish for the podium.” Minster was the top finishing team at the state meet, taking fifth place with 157 points. Morgan Pohl led the Lady Wildcats, finishing 14th. The Fort Loramie girls were 11th in the final team standings, and senior Meg Westerheide was the first Lady Redskin across the line in 15th place.

Versailles dominates, earns D-III state tourney berth Kyle Shaner Civitas Media

KETTERING — In a moment Versailles has been building toward for years, the Lady Tigers swept No. 1-ranked Sparta Highland in a Division III Regional volleyball final Saturday afternoon to secure a spot in the state tournament. It was a continuation of Versailles’ dominance in the Ohio High School Athletic Association D-III volleyball tournament as the Lady Tigers have swept all five of their postseason matches, including a 25-15, 25-17, 25-15 win against Highland on Saturday. “It’s awesome,” Versailles volleyball coach Karla Frilling said. “It’s an awesome feeling. I have a lot of pride in the community and in the girls and the effort and hard work and the determination they have. You can’t help but walk out of here being proud that you’re a Tiger today.” Even though Highland was the Ohio High School Volleyball Coaches Association’s topranked D-III team, No. 3 ranked Versailles had little trouble with the Lady Scots on Saturday. Versailles never trailed Highland in the first game and was only tied once, at 2-2 early in the opening set. The game remained close in the early stages, but Versailles scored 15 of the final 21 points to win the opening game 25-15. The high point for Highland came early in the second game when the Scots led 1-0 and 4-3.

After that, Highland never led again as Versailles continued to roll and won the game 25-17 to go up two sets to none. With all the momentum in their favor, the Lady Tigers scored the first three points of the third set and eight of the first nine. Sparta never recovered as Versailles won 25-15, sweeping the match and securing its trip to the state final four. “I thought we did a nice job overall of maintaining our position ahead of them,” Frilling said. “As a coach, I don’t think it was our best game, wasn’t our best match. Came out a little slow defensively, offensively made some errors. I don’t know, maybe again it’s just me wanting more and more and more out of these girls, but the victory is still sweet, regardless.” Following the match, the Lady Tigers raised their regional championship trophy and celebrated on the floor at Kettering Fairmont’s Trent Arena with their friends and family. “I just feeling like crying the whole time,” senior setter Rachel Kremer said. Securing a berth in the state tournament is something that’s been in the Lady Tigers’ sights for the past few seasons as they only lost one volleyball player to graduation in each of the past two seasons. As a result, the Lady Tigers have an experienced roster with six seniors, six juniors and three sophomores who have been at the forefront of the team the past few seasons and building to this moment.

“Maybe a little sooner than this but I’ll take it now, I’ll take it now,” Frilling said when asked if she had envisioned these girls making it to state. “I knew these girls had a big future ahead of them, and I’m very, very proud of them and happy for them.” It’s a battle-tested group that has stuck together to now make the state final four. “I wouldn’t trade this team for anybody,” senior outside hitter Amanda Winner said. This is Versailles’ fourth trip to the state final four in volleyball and first since 2008. Versailles was the state runner up in 2003 and a state semifinalist in 2008 and 1988. In this year’s state tournament, Versailles will play in the state semifinals at noon Friday at Wright State University’s Nutter Center against Upper Sandusky, who beat fellow Midwest Athletic Conference member Coldwater in five sets Saturday. “They’re tall, they’re athletic, and it’s a state game,” Frilling said of Upper Sandusky, prior to learning the outcome of its match against Coldwater. “We’re going to have to play hard.” The match between Versailles and Upper Sandusky will be followed by the other D-III state semifinal between West Lafayette Ridgewood and Gates Mills Gilmour Academy. The winners of the two state semifinal matches will play for the Division III state championship at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Nutter Center.
