A 15-year-old Sidney girl died and a man was seriously injured when a car crashed into a stopped train early Sunday morning in Sidney. According to WDTN-TV, Dayton, the Montgomery County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office has identified the girl as McKenzie Jones, 15, of Sidney. She was

pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at the railroad crossing on Vandemark Road, south of Campbell Road. Sidney Police had not released the teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity as of Sunday afternoon. Police identified the driver as Frank Shields Jr., 41, address unknown. He was

taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. The hospital said Shields was in serious condition Sunday afternoon. Police said the crash occurred about 3 a.m. Police found a car partially under a CSX train that was stopped on the tracks. The train was

stopped at the time the car hit it, police said. The crossing remained closed several hours while CSX and police investigated the accident. The crossing does not have crossing gates, only reflective signs to alert drivers.

Scrapbook honors naval service By Patricia Ann Speelman

John Richards, of Sidney, a World War II veteran of the U.S. Navy, was among local former servicemen who traveled to Washington, D.C., as part of Shelby County Vets to D.C. program in 2009. He was 88 years old. Accompanying him was his granddaughter, Laura Fogt, of Anna. They visited monuments, enjoyed meals together and appreciated spending time with each other. When they got back home, Fogt made sure the trip wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be forgotten. She created a scrapbook to document Richardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Navy service and their travels to Washington.

She presented it to Richards as a birthday gift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I scrapbook anyway,â&#x20AC;? Fogt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kept a journal (on the trip).â&#x20AC;? The book is filled with photos from Richardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time in the Navy and mementos and journal entries from the hours they shared in Washington. The most difficult part of putting the scrapbook together, Fogt said, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to get military pictues without his knowing. I had to get my grandmother to help me.â&#x20AC;? Richards, now 92, and his wife, Betty, have been married for 67 years. He met her while he was training as an aircraft mechanic in Lincoln, Neb. He had thought, when he joined the Navy at age 21, that he would be a pilot.

A three-and-ahalf-hour standoff at a Sidney home Saturday morning that began after a man allegedly fired gunshots and threatened to harm police, ended with no one hurt.

NAMELESS: A â&#x20AC;&#x153;mixedâ&#x20AC;? religion marriage can be successful if the partners thoroughly understand that an extra burden is added to the union. Before the marriage, it is imperative that all questions regarding future children should be discussed and a settlement agreed upon by both of you. Typical questions include, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would the children be raised in the Jewish faith, or Protestant faith?â&#x20AC;?

or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Should the children attend a public or parochial school?â&#x20AC;?

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — As many as 10,000 people are believed to have died in one Philippine city alone when one of the worst storms on record sent giant sea waves, washing away homes, schools and airport buildings, officials said Sunday. Ferocious winds ravaged several central islands, burying people under tons of debris and leaving corpses hanging from trees. Regional police chief Elmer Soria said he was briefed by Leyte provincial Gov. Dominic Petilla late Saturday and told there were about 10,000 deaths in the province, mostly by drowning and from collapsed buildings. The governor’s figure was based on reports from village officials in areas where Typhoon Haiyan slammed Friday. Tacloban city administrator Tecson Lim said that the death toll in the city alone “could go up to 10,000.” Tacloban is the Leyte provincial capital of 200,000 people and the biggest city on Leyte Island. On Samar Island, which is facing Tacloban, Leo Dacaynos of the provincial disaster office said Sunday that 300 people were confirmed dead in Basey town and another 2,000 are missing. He said that the storm surge caused sea waters to rise 6 meters (20 feet) when Typhoon Haiyan hit Friday, before crossing to Tacloban. There are still other towns on Samar that have not been reached, he said, and appealed for food and water. Power was knocked out and there was no cellphone signal, making communication possible only by radio. Reports from the other four islands were still coming in, so far with dozens of fatalities. The typhoon barreled through six central Philippine islands on Friday, wiping away buildings and leveling seaside homes with ferocious winds of 235 kilometers per hour (147 miles per hour) and gusts of 275 kph (170 mph). By those measurements, Haiyan would be comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S., and nearly in the top category, a 5. It weakened Sunday to 166 kph (103 mph) with stronger gusts and was forecast to loose strength further when it hits northern Vietnam’s Thanh Hoa province early Monday morning.

The Ohio Center for Aquaculture Research and Development at the Ohio State University South Centers is offering 25 new and beginning fish farmers a hands-on approach to aquaculture and the business of fish farming through a yearlong program that gives participants the opportunity to study the issue at the Piketon facility. Called Aquaculture Boot Camp, the ultimate goal of the training is to “transform civilians into fish farmers.” Aquaculture — which includes the breeding, rearing, and har-

vesting of plants and animals in ponds, rivers, lakes, and the ocean for food, sport, bait, ornamental fish, sea vegetables, fish eggs, and algae — is a strong and growing industry. The program uses a multi-faceted approach, including classroom and hands-on training paired with industry mentoring, to improve the success rate of new and beginning aquaculture farmers. The goal is to increase the number of those with the skills and knowledge required to successfully own and operate a fish farm. During the year, participants will take part in 12, one-day training sessions that will include workshops on aquaculture, farm tours, homework and study assignments,

Master Gardening training planned Ohio State University Extension Shelby County and Shelby County Master Gardeners are currently planning 2014 Master Gardener training. The training is tentatively scheduled for nine consecutive Thursdays, March 5 through May 1, at the Shelby County Agricultural Service Center, 810 Fair Road, in Sidney. Sessions start at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. Training is open to interested residents of Shelby and surrounding counties. The Ohio State University Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program provides intensive training

in horticulture to interested Ohio residents who then volunteer their time assisting with educational programs and activities for Ohio residents through their local Ohio State University Extension county office. Volunteers are not required to have gardening skills or knowledge; but a passion for learn-

ing about gardening and sharing this knowledge with others is a must! Working with county Extension personnel, Master Gardener Volunteers provide such educational services to their communities as: answering gardening questions from the public; conducting plant clinics; gardening activities with children, senior citizens, or disabled persons; beautifying the community; developing community or demonstration gardens; and other horticultural activities. Cost of the training is $125, with a $50 refundable deposit due upon return of the application.

The fee covers presenters, a comprehensive training manual, handouts, and light snacks. OSUE also requires a law enforcement background check. The training will be provided by some of OSUE’s top experts as well as some local Master Gardeners. Upon completion of the training sessions, the trainees will become Master Gardener interns and will be expected to provide 50 hours of volunteer service during the coming year. For more information or to get a registration packet, stop by the Extension Office at 810 Fair Road or call 937498-7239.

and the opportunity to work on an operating fish farm. Students will end the program with a complete business plan for their operation and have access to trainers and mentors in the field. The program is free of charge, thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Applications for the program are available at and are due by Nov. 15. Applicants will be notified of selection by Dec. 13, and the first day of the boot camp will be Jan. 11, at the OSU South Centers at Piketon.

Crop commodity loan payments resume

Aircraft sowing to improve water

WASHINGTON — USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia has announced that the processing and disbursement of 2013 crop commodity loans has resumed. Crop year 2013 commodity loan-making was suspended Oct. 1, to make changes necessary to accommodate the automatic funding reductions known as sequester. Sequestration is mandated by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 as amended by the Budget Control Act of 2011. “We must comply with the laws established by Congress to reduce funds

COLUMBUS — Producers in 16 Ohio counties watched the skies, not for weather, but for seeds that will help improve soil and water quality and boost their bottom lines. Working with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), local soil and water conservation districts (SWCDs) and the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD), 235 farmers are planting cover crops on 21,709 Ohio acres. Approximately half of the acres have been planted through aerial seeding, which allowed for the

in accordance with sequestration policy,” said Garcia. “We regret the delay this has created in USDA issuing marketing assistance loans because we know how critical the loans are to many farmers’ cash flow at this time of year.” The commodity loan programs provide interim financing to producers for agricultural commodities stored after harvest and then sold throughout the year. Producers requesting 2013 crop commodity loans on their harvested commodities now will have a 5.1 percent reduction to the loan amount upon its disbursement, due to the


sequestration. Commodity loans issued by marketing associations and loan servicing agents are also subject to the sequestration reduction. During the period that loan-making was suspended, producers were still able to submit loan applications to their county FSA offices, marketing associations and loan servicing agents. The processing and disbursement of these applications will begin immediately. For further information about commodity marketing loans, farmers may contact their local county FSA office or go online to

seed to be planted without affecting crops still on the field. The remainder of the cover crops are being planted using conventional methods. “The overwhelming response to this program is another example showing that farmers across Ohio are committed to improving water quality,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “We will continue to support and initiate programs like this one that help producers manage the risk of adopting the new practices and provide them with the tools necessary to get the job done.” Cover crops are nationally recognized as a soil and water quality best management practice because they control erosion and maintain nutrients in the soil. ODNR program administrators estimate the cover crop planting could result in up to 30,000 tons of soil saved as well as 30,000 pounds of phosphorus and 60,000 pounds of nitrogen kept out of Ohio waters. Aerial seeding began in late September. ODNR provided oversight for the program, including rule development and payment administration. Local SWCDs in

16 counties worked directly with farmers to sign up, evaluate and eventually verify fields had been planted. MWCD provided $320,871 in funding to assist farmers in planting cover crops on soils within the conservancy district, with priority given to fields that offered the highest potential for erosion into district waters. “This program is as good as an investment as the MWCD can make,” said MWCD Chief of Conservation Sean D. Logan. “Cover crops not only conserve soil but ultimately help farmers in our watershed to save money by buying less fertilizer. We hope to assist in similar efforts for years to come.” The MWCD funding covered about 1/3 of the cost for each farmer to plant the cover crops. Local SWCDs worked to buy the seed in bulk and scheduled planes to seed from the air. Cover crops being planted are oats, rye, wheat and mixtures that included clover. ODNR administrators, local SWCD technicians and MWCD personnel will review the program and determine how best to continue and improve it in years to come.

State/Nation/World Today in History The Associated Press

Today is Monday, Nov. 11, the 315th day of 2013. There are 50 days left in the year. This is Veterans Day in the U.S., Remembrance Day in Canada. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 11, 1918, fighting in World War I came to an end with the signing of an armistice between the Allies and Germany. On this date: In 1620, 41 Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower, anchored off Massachusetts, signed a compact calling for a “body politick.” In 1831, former slave Nat Turner, who’d led a violent insurrection, was executed in Jerusalem, Va. In 1889, Washington became the 42nd state. In 1909, President William Howard Taft accepted the recommendation of a joint Army-Navy board that Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian Islands be made the principal U.S. naval station in the Pacific. In 1921, the remains of an unidentified American service member were interred in a Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in a ceremony presided over by President Warren G. Harding. In 1932, a new tomb to house the remains of the Unknown Soldier was dedicated at Arlington National Cemetery. In 1942, during World War II, Germany completed its occupation of France. In 1960, South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem survived a coup attempt by army rebels. (However, he was overthrown and killed in 1963.) In 1966, Gemini 12 blasted off from Cape Kennedy with astronauts James A. Lovell and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. aboard. In 1972, the U.S. Army turned over its base at Long Binh to the South Vietnamese, symbolizing the end of direct U.S. military involvement in the Vietnam War. In 1987, following the failure of two Supreme Court nominations, President Ronald Reagan announced his choice of Judge Anthony M. Kennedy, who went on to win confirmation. In 1992, the Church of England voted to ordain women as priests. Ten years ago: President Bush’s top foreign advisers summoned L. Paul Bremer, Iraq’s U.S. administrator, for hurried White House talks focused on their growing frustrations with the Iraqi Governing Council and a logjam in transferring political power to Iraqis. In Galveston, Texas, millionaire Robert Durst was found not guilty of murdering Morris Black, an elderly neighbor who Durst said he’d killed accidentally. Toronto’s Roy Halladay won the American League Cy Young Award.

Out of the Blue

Asteroid has six tails CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — This is one strange asteroid. The Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a six-tailed asteroid in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Scientists say they’ve never seen anything like it. Incredibly, the comet-like tails change shape as the asteroid sheds dust. The streams have occurred over several months. A research team led by the University of California, Los Angeles, believes the asteroid, designated P/2013 P5, is rotating so much that its surface is flying apart. It’s believed to be a fragment of a larger asteroid damaged in a collision 200 million years ago. Scientists using the PanSTARRS telescope in Hawaii spotted the asteroid in August. Hubble picked out all the tails in September. The discovery is described in this week’s issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Toast to Doolittle Raiders: ‘Peace’ DAN SEWELL Associated Press

DAYTON (AP) — Known as the Doolittle Raiders, the 80 men who risked their lives on a World War II bombing mission on Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor were toasted one last time by their surviving comrades and honored with a Veterans Day weekend of fanfare shared by thousands. Three of the four surviving Raiders attended the toast Saturday at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Their late commander, Lt. Gen. James “Jimmy” Doolittle, started the tradition but they decided this autumn’s ceremony would be their last. “May they rest in peace,” Lt. Col. Richard Cole, 98, said before he and fellow Raiders — Lt. Col. Edward Saylor, 93, and Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, 92 — sipped cognac from specially engraved

silver goblets. The 1896 cognac was saved for the occasion after being passed down from Doolittle. Hundreds invited to the ceremony, including family members of deceased Raiders, watched as the three each called out “here” as a historian read the names of all 80 of the original airmen. The fourth surviving Raider, Lt. Col. Robert Hite, 93, couldn’t travel to Ohio because of health problems. But son Wallace Hite said his father, wearing a Raiders blazer and other traditional garb for their reunions, made his own salute to the fallen with a silver goblet of wine at home in Nashville, Tenn., earlier in the week. Hite is the last survivor of eight Raiders who were captured by Japanese soldiers. Three were executed; another died in captivity.

Scrapbook From page A1 so they kicked me out of the aviation corps,” Richards said. Eventually, as a seaman third class machinist mate, he found himself on a ship headed to Fox Island, where the ship was to be rebuilt for the invasion of Japan. The invasion never happened. The Japanese surrendered and the war ended on Aug. 6, 1945, while Richards and his unit were en route. “The boat was restricted to eight knots. This was not a sea-going vessel. The deck was only 6 feet off the water. Fish jumped up on the deck. It was not a calm sea. We were sliding all over the decks,” Richards said. “We were afraid of Japanese submarines every minute we were alive. It was a real fear because the Japs wouldn’t have heard of the surrender, maybe.” Richards’s unit was sent instead to Guam after a stop at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. “The destruction (in Pearl Harbor) was horrible,” he said. On Guam, Richards was assigned to a commander as office personnel. The unit was a replacement at the naval air station there. “We were on the Orote Peninsula, the only peninsula on Guam,” he said. “The Navy and

Marines took care of it. The Japanese airplanes that were bombed were pushed off to the side of the airstrip” creating a dump. People on Guam spoke Japanese, he added. It was easy for Japanese escapees to mingle with locals, known as Moros. “The escapees couldn’t live in the villages, because the villages were controlled,” Richards said. “So they lived in the dump, comfortably in the airplanes. They attacked a seabee base and killed some seabees in a shower.” In retaliation, Richards and other naval personnel were asked to line up along the airstrip runway. They were given guns, but no ammunition. The Marines then stripped the escapees of their clothes and paraded them down the runway in front of the gun-toting Navy. “It was awful,” Richards said. “Something you never forgot.” Nothing much happened on Guam once the war was over, naked war prisoners, notwithstanding. “I took care of the air traffic control tower,” Richards said. “It was like a windmill with a platform on top of it. It was useless after the war. There never was a plane landed.”

Seaman 3rd Class John Richards, second from left, enjoys time with his buddies during their service on Guam in 1945.

He was also in charge of liberty parties, organizing visits to the beach for sailors who were given afternoons off duty. “There was nothing but coral,” he said in describing the beach, “so you couldn’t swim. We took a boat out.” Although he got “itchy” for something to change after nine months on the island, “every day, something exciting happened and it had nothing to do with the war,” Richards said. “We were unsupervised relief people with no chance to go home. If it hadn’t been for my three buddies, I would have gone nuts.” The scrapbook includes

photos of the young sailor smiling into the camera surrounded by those buddies. Fogt assembled pictures and copies of her journal entries in a United States Navy scrapbook. Its pages are collages of patriotic posters, newspaper headlines from the war and flag prints. Bas relief cutouts of ships, planes, military seals, stars, memorial buildings and maps pepper its leaves. “I smiled the whole way home and was so excited to start on this book about Grandpa’s journey to Washington, D.C.” Fogt wrote in her journal. She added that during one of the dinners,

Richards regaled everyone at their table with stories about his years in the service. “We performed a ceremony at the World War II memorial and placed a wreath honoring Shelby County veterans. It was very moving and I was proud to be there with my grandfather,” she wrote. Fogt’s gift to her grandfather provides him the opportunity to recall not only the Washington trip but also his time as a seaman. “The best four years of my life were the ones when I was in the service,” he said. “There was nothing but excitement.”

The neck stenosis is causing a balance problem. Who would treat and/or operate on this — orthopedist or neurologist? — J.W. ANSWER: I would be very slow to recommend surgery on the neck at age 92. I would try other treatments, including medication, physical therapy and possibly injection, before considering surgery. Balance problems may benefit from problem-specific exercises. A neurologist may be very helpful in evaluating whether the symptoms are indeed coming from the spinal stenosis, because balance problems can have many different causes. If symptoms were intolerable despite everything that could be done short of surgery, I would find the most experienced surgeon around,

which could be either a neurosurgeon or an orthopedic surgeon. DEAR DR. ROACH: I read your response to T.M. about his PSA level. Rather than a biopsy, would a PCA3 urine test be as good? — S.R. ANSWER: The prostate cancer antigen 3 gene (PCA3) has been proposed both as a screening test by itself, and as a confirmatory test after an abnormal PSA test. It was a bit better than PSA as a screening test, and shows promise as a test to reduce unnecessary biopsies for men with abnormal PSA levels. However, the most recent study from Brown University in 2013 concluded that there isn’t yet enough evidence to start using this test on a routine basis. DR. ROACH WRITES: Quite a few people have written in to recommend nasal saline gel for people with dry nose and recurrent nosebleeds. It is worth a try, especially for those who don’t like petrolatum or for whom it isn’t working.

kitchen time, but to be honest, everybody enjoys helping each other out, and the cooks spend most of their time chatting. We have tried wonderful variations to the traditional turkey, enjoyed an awesome pie straight from the Renaissance, and learned that we will never again try oyster stuffing. Because the recipes are untried, no one feels bad if the dish isn’t perfect, and we have tried things we were surprised we liked.

and holds grudges. He is very ill now. I have asked him if he wants to tell his sister about his illness, and he says no. I’m not sure how much longer he has left. I am thinking about going against his wishes and calling her in the hopes that they can make peace. Your thoughts? — NOT MUCH TIME LEFT DEAR NOT MUCH TIME LEFT: Depending upon how deep the rift between them is, I do think you should make a confidential phone call and tell her it might be a good idea to call her brother. If she does, the conversation could be healing for both of them. However, if she chooses to ignore the situation, the choice will have been hers, and no harm will have been done. DEAR READERS: Today, Veterans Day, I would like to thank not only all of you who have honorably served our country, but also those men and women who are on active duty for your service as well. I salute each and every one of you. — ABBY

100 years Nov. 11, 1913 Judge Hugh T.

Odds and ends OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Donald DeVault wonders what kind of memories his Triumph motorcycle helped make in the 46 years since it was stolen, and he’s looking forward to making more of his own when it’s returned. The 73-year-old Omaha man learned last week that California authorities had recovered his 1953 Triumph Tiger 100 at the Port of Los Angeles. The bike was about to be shipped to Japan when U.S. Customs & Border Protection agents who checked the vehicle identification number discovered the motorcycle had been reported stolen in February 1967. DeVault said he is eager to get the bike back, but he thinks investigators may be even more excited than him about the motorcycle’s recovery. DeVault had had the bike for only a year or two when it was taken from his fenced backyard. “I really want to protect it this time,” DeVault said. “I’m sure there’s people out there that would want to take it away.” The bike was valued at $300 when in 1967. The shipping documents listed its value

today at $9,000. DeVault already has a Harley-Davidson and a Kawasaki motorcycle in his garage, so he plans to reserve the Triumph for special rides. DeVault said he’s talked about the motorcycle over the years whenever he was around bikers. It had a couple features unusual for Triumphs made in the early 1950s, such as its hardtail frame. DeVault recalls Marlon Brando riding a similar Triumph bike in the movie “The Wild One,” and after that it seemed like everyone wanted to ride a motorcycle. But DeVault said he was already riding motorcycles by the time the movie came out, and continued riding for much of his life. What sold him on the Triumph was the blue color and the name “Li’l Blue Bitch” airbrushed on the side of the gas tank. A friend with a trucking company is helping DeVault arrange to ship the motorcycle home from California. Once he gets it back in a couple weeks, DeVault plans to have someone restore the bike’s name and paint “46 Years Later” on the gas tank.

to do whatever I want with it. Of course, I would love to hear from you, which is why I am constantly reaching out, only to be met with silence. My heart will always be open to you. -- Love, Dad Dear Dad: We can feel your anger and bitterness through your words. We don’t know what precipitated your estrangement, but kids can hang onto a lot of resentment for a very long time. You want them to be warm and respectful, but they may have reasons for keeping an emotional distance. Reaching out may require apologies and forgiveness all around. Please try again, but this time, be vulnerable enough to let them know you want to be closer, and ask how best to achieve it.

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Nov. 11, 2013: This year you often demonstrate an unusually creative yet disciplined side of your personality. When you use it well, you could find that very little is unattainable. If you are single, you seem to be able to attract the type of person you desire. You will meet several desirable suitors. As a result, you will date a lot. If you are attached, your sweetie often finds you closed down. This person might be manipulative in his or her desire to have you open up. Avoid fighting, and understand where your significant other is coming from. PISCES often makes you feel like a kid again. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH You might want to keep a secret or allow a matter to stay hush-hush. You need to be intuitive, especially with others. Several friends could approach questions from a different angle as they try to find out what information you are holding back. Tonight: Watch your hot temper. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Zero in on what appears to be a hot issue. You are capable of putting what lies ahead in perspective, which increases your ability to accomplish what you desire. Use your unique talent to detach and see the big picture. Tonight: A disagreement encourages a creative solution.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You might be trying to work through a problem. You are able to handle a lot, but tension keeps rising. Your effectiveness is dependent on your ability to process stress. You can’t avoid certain situations. Take a walk at lunchtime, if need be. Tonight: A must appearance. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Detach and you’ll gain a unique perspective, especially when dealing with a particularly contentious or controlling person. Your creativity falls flat, but a brainstorming session will open many doors. You’ll get a better grasp of what is happening. Tonight: Look beyond the obvious. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Work with others directly. You communicate effectively, and many people around you gain insight quickly. As a result, you can make changes nearly immediately. An associate could present a risk you might not be aware of. Tonight: Go along with someone else’s request. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Defer to others. Know when you are in a nowin situation. It is important to recognize what is happening before you encounter a problem. Allow others to experience some of the issues you face, and they might become more understanding. Tonight: Make time for a friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Your easygoing attitude allows others the space to be

free and come forward. You tend to gain insight more easily about the people in your life because they reveal themselves often. Do not sit on anger. Tonight: Discuss a potential problem without becoming frustrated. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Many opportunities come forward that could involve adjusting your schedule. You might want to tap into someone’s resourcefulness. Your seriousness will strengthen a situation. A friend could become very irritable. Tonight: Approach a loved one with sensitivity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Your compassion comes out when dealing with a family member. Tap into your intuition in order to succeed today. Feedback from a family member presents a different idea that might not coincide with yours. Be sure to touch base with a superior. Tonight: Your home is your castle. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You could be moving forward with a project that is often discussed. A talk will help this goal become a reality. News from a distance could shake up plans. This newly shared enterprise will stick because time has encouraged perspective and thought. Tonight: At a favorite spot. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You will indulge yourself, whether it is sharing a favorite breakfast or taking a few hours for yourself.

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a poor day to make decisions about shared property, mortgages, loans and financial matters. Because your idealism is aroused, this could affect your practical judgment. Wait a week. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Discussions with partners and close friends will be pleasant and easygoing today. Quite likely, you will look for what might be possible in a perfect world. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Feelings of sympathy for co-workers and others will color your judgment today. Remember that true generosity is giving what is needed. Be sensible. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a wonderful day for artists, lovers, people involved in sports and those who work with children. You feel tenderhearted, creative and imaginative. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Discussions with a family member might be important because someone needs to confide in you. Perhaps this person needs a sympathetic listener or some caring advice. Or you might. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Don’t worry if you spend a lot of time daydreaming or lost in flights of fantasy today. It’s just that kind of day. No biggie. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your financial ideas might be a bit fantastic today, perhaps beyond being practical. Be careful when shopping, because you might be tempted to buy expensive, luxurious items you can’t afford. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Discussions with others will be sensitive and meaningful today, because you’re willing to listen to all the subtle nuances that are present in the conversation. If someone is upset, you will know it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your concern for someone might cause you to put his or her interest before your own today. Just make sure you know what you’re doing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Because you are more sensitive to the subtleties of others, you’ll be sympathetic to their needs. You might enjoy discussions about mystical or spiritual subjects today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Avoid practical conversations with bosses, parents and VIPs, because you might sound a bit airyfairy to them. You would rather talk about dreams, ideals and escaping reality. They might not want to hear this. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Discussions about philosophy, spirituality and belief systems will appeal to you today. You’ll be particularly sympathetic to exotic views of distant lands. Don’t hesitate to explore ideas as well as see beautiful surroundings. YOU BORN TODAY Beneath your bright, friendly exterior, you are intense and strive to be in control of your environment. When you want something, you know how to seduce in order to get your way. In part, you’re successful because you are attractive and energetic, so who can resist you? This year is the beginning of a fresh, exciting new cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Stanley Tucci, actor/author; Calista Flockhart, actress; Christa B. Allen, actress.

Defense powers Cavs to playoff win Rob Kiser Civitas Media

No one will ever mistake Lehman’s 220-pound senior offensive/defensive lineman Brad Montgomery for Deion Sanders or Devon Hester. His 7-yard interception return for his first high school touchdown late in third quarter of the Cavaliers’ 44-9 Division VII playoff win over Bainbridge Paint Valley won’t land him an audition on Dancing With The Stars. But there is no question the play lifted the entire Lehman team and finished the Bearcats for good, giving Lehman a 34-7 lead. The Cavaliers, 10-1, will play 11-0 Triad at Wapakoneta at 7 p.m. Saturday. Paint Valley closed the season at 8-3. “Oh my gosh,” Lehman linebacker John Husa said. “That was unbelievable. For something like that to happen for Brad — it was just great to see.” Fellow Lehman linebacker Kristopher Lee agreed. “Not only does he score, he drags a huge offensive lineman with him into the end zone,” Lee said. “It gave our whole team a lift and it had to take a lot out of them.” It happened so quick, Montogmery didn’t know what to think. And he didn’t realize he was carrying another 200-pounds plus the last five yards. “I couldn’t feel anything,” Montgomery said. “I didn’t even know there was a guy holding on to me. It feels great to get a touchdown in that situation.” Even Lehman coach Dick Roll had to smile about that one. “I think it gave us a lift and demoralized them,” Roll said. And it was fitting that it was a defensive play that finished things off — the Cavalier defense would come up with four turnovers and the special teams would add fumble recoveries on a punt and a kickoff in the fourth quarter. “Just swarm to the ball,” Husa said. “That’s what we talked about. Anytime you can do something to help the team win, that’s what it’s all

about. Whatever it takes.” After the Bearcats had stunned Lehman, moving the ball on its opening drive before stalling and taking a 7-0 lead on the next drive, it was all Cavaliers the rest of the way. “They kind of jumped on us early,” Roll said. “But once our defense got started, they never let up.” Greg Spearman countered with a 30-yard TD reception from Nick Rourke and scored on a 5-yard run as Lehman took a 14-7 lead. Husa then stripped Paint Valley quarterback Anthony McFadden of the ball in the Bearcat backfield with Brad Montgomery recovering at the Paint Valley six. On fourth-and-goal from the one, Husa barrelled into the end zone and Lehman led 20-7. Paint Valley got the final two points of the half when Lehman had a miscommunication on a punt snap, with the ball rolling 22 yards behind the line of scrimmage into the end zone and Rourke falling on it for a safety. But the Cavaliers took control from the start in the third quarter. Lehman, with minus-4 yards rushing at halftime, went right down the field on the opening kickoff. “We were saving it for the next game,” Roll said. “But we decided to roll it out. We put an extra blocker in there and it worked.” Lane Monnin had an-18 yard run to set up a 20-yard TD run by Rourke to cap the 65-yard drive. Rourke got a great block to get to the perimeter and slipped a tackle at the 10-yard line. Ian Smith’s third PAT of the night made it 27-7. “I thought that was a huge drive,” Roll said. “And Nick’s a good runner. He showed that.” Paint Valley was moving down the field when Lee broke into the backfield on second-and-five at the Lehman 21. Not only did he strip McFadden of the ball, Lee found the ball and recovered it at the 28. That would lead to Montgomery’s interception return after a Lehman punt pinned the Bearcats back. In the fourth quarter, Smith kicked

a 25-yard field goal and Spearman added his third TD of the night on a yard run for the final margin. And on a night when there were no explosive offensive statistics, the Lehman defense dominated the game, capped by an interception return no one will soon forget.

Flyers overpower Fort Loramie 63-14 Ken Barhorst

MARIA STEIN – The Fort Loramie Redskins did manage to get into a rhythm on offense in the first half against the top-ranked Marion Local Flyers, but as coach Matt Burgbacher said following the game “by the time we did, we were down 21-0.” The Redskins slugged it out with the Flyers for much of the first half, pretty much taking away their running game. But with Pitt-bound quarterback Adam Bertke returning to the field for the first time in a long while, Marion Local was unstoppable on offense from late in the second quarter to the end of the third, when the starters were taken out. It all led up to a 63-14 loss for the Redskins, who end their season at 8-3. Marion Local, 11-0 and the defending state champion, now moves on to play 11-0 Covington Saturday in the regional semifinals at Piqua (7 p.m.) “Our game plan was to mix it up with the run and the pass, and I thought we didn’t a good job of that,” said Burgbacher. “I was pleased with how the kids played. They kept fighting and we were right there in the first half. But then they got that touchdown right before the half ended, and that really hurt us.” The Flyers jumped out to a 21-0 lead, with backup quarterback Dustin Rethman

competing six of eight passes on the first drive after it became evident the Flyers would not be able to run on the Redskins, at least early. The Flyers drove from their own 33 down to the five, and that’s when coach Tim Goodwin sent Bertke into the game for his first taste of action since early in the season, when he suffered an injury to his hand. Bertke kept on the next play and took it in from the five for a 7-0 lead. Marion then forced a Loramie punt, which was blocked and recovered in the endzone for a touchdown by Peyton Kramer for a 14-0 lead with 4:40 left in the opening period. Then on Loramie’s very next offensive play, Tyler Kazmaier was picked off by Nate Nagel, setting up the Flyers at the Loramie 27. This time, the running game got untracked and the Flyers went the 27 yards in six plays, five on the ground, pushing the score to 21-0 on a four-yard run by Aaron Nietfeld. But the Redskins weren’t going away. They took over on their own 15 following the kick and Kazmaier moved them out to midfield with two pass completions, and four carries by Delaunte Thornton. Then on the first play of the second quarter, Kazmaier found Craig Fullenkamp down the middle and it went for a 49-yard score to put Loramie on the board.

The Redskins then recovered a Marion fumble near midfield and drove to the 34 before the Flyers came up with another interception. They turned it into points, going 72 yards in six plays, the big play being a 41-yard sprint by Hunter Wilker down to the four. The Redskins responded again, however, with Kazmaier completing four of five passes on a 66-yard touchdown drive, the scoring coming on a 12-yard strike to Fullenkamp. The score came with just 1:28 remaining and cut the lead to 28-14. But the Redskins couldn’t keep the Flyers out of the endzone before the half ended. With Bertke showing off his ample talents, the Flyers went 70 yards in just six plays. He completed three of four passes to start the drove, including a 38-yarder to Troy Homan down to the eight. Bertke then kept on two straight plays to score a crushing touchdown with just :35 left in the half. “That was a huge score for them,” Burgbacher said. “And the blocked punt really hurt us early. We weren’t able to make plays that we were in position to make, and they did. Marion is definitely the real deal. Those little things we talked about? We didn’t do them and Marion did.” Fullenkamp had a huge game for the Redskins, catching 10 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns. Kazmaier was 14-for-21 in

the first half for 198 yards and the two scores, and finished the game 19-for-31 for 236 yards. Thornton, who came into the game with over 1,800 yards rushing, powered his way for 89 tough yards against the Flyers. Bertke was 8-for-9 passing for the game for 145 yards and two touchdowns.

Miracle play not enough for Bengals BALTIMORE (AP) — Their season hanging in the balance after having victory snatched away on a final desperate play of regulation, the Baltimore Ravens responded like champions. Victimized by a desperation 51-yard touchdown pass to force overtime, the defending Super Bowl winners edged Cincinnati 20-17 on Justin Tucker’s 46-yard field goal with 5:27 left in OT Sunday. “It’s disappointment,” coach John Harbaugh said of A.J. Green’s catch

as the clocked ran out in the fourth quarter. “But you don’t get disheartened. You still have a chance to win the game, still.” And so they did, after blowing a 17-0 halftime lead. Bidding to end a three-game skid and remain relevant in the playoff hunt, the Ravens committed three turnovers and managed only 189 yards of offense. “We’re not playing great right now,” Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco conceded, “but we’re doing

the best we can to win.” The tense win thrust the Ravens (4-5) into a second-place tie in the AFC North, just one game behind Cincinnati (6-4) in the loss column. It was Baltimore’s first victory since Oct. 6. Four of the Ravens’ five losses have come by a combined 14 points. It seemed like this one was headed in that direction after Andy Dalton forced overtime with that heave to Green to end the fourth quarter. “I looked back and saw Green

with the ball in his hands and I couldn’t believe it,” Ravens cornerback Corey Graham said. But Baltimore persevered. “The thing is I’m most proud of is the heart of our guys,” Harbaugh said. “They showed the heart of champions. Where this will lead us, we’ll find out.” Who knows if the Ravens can rebound from their poor start to make the postseason for a sixth straight year? This much is certain: It would have been much tougher if

they were 3-6 and tied for last place with Pittsburgh. “Thank you, Lord!” shouted James Ihedigbo shouted as he left the field. Flacco threw two interceptions and lost a fumble, and Ray Rice gained a mere 30 yards on 18 carries. And still, the Ravens prevailed. “Sometimes you have to win by any means necessary,” Rice said. “Winning heals a lot. Now we’ve got to get on a roll to get back where we want to be.”

Versailles, Marion capture state titles

DAYTON — In its biggest match of the season, the Versailles volleyball team played one of its best matches of the year to defeat one of the toughest teams it’s seen and capture its first volleyball state championship. The Division III championship match couldn’t have been much closer, with Versailles needing five sets to defeat Gates Mills Gilmour Academy at Wright State University’s Ervin J. Nutter Center. “It sure feels like (the best match we’ve played this year),” Versailles volleyball coach Karla Frilling said. “It was one of the best competitions we’ve played all year. Heavy hitting; strong, powerful blocks; great defense. They took it to us every single game. So we had to play one of our best games today to be in the position we’re in now.” The Lady Tigers were determined to bring home the state championship, a goal they’ve been working toward for years and have been reminded of daily by a sign hanging in their locker room. “I knew how much we all wanted it and how hard my defense was working for me, and Grace (Rachel Kremer) was working for me and everyone else,” senior Amanda Winner said. “We were working for each other so I just knew we all wanted it so bad.” For just the second time this season, Versailles played a five-set match on Saturday. It was the first

time Versailles went to five sets since a Midwest Athletic Conference match against Division IV state champion Marion Local on Aug. 29, which was the last time Versailles lost this season on its way to a 27-2 record. Saturday’s win gave Versailles its 14 th state team championship in school history but its first — and Darke County’s first — in volleyball. The Lady Tigers previously went to state in 1988, 2003 and 2008, but this time they brought home the gold trophy. “It’s indescribable,” senior Olivia Schlater said. “We’re so blessed to be part of this team and have all the girls that we have on this team, whether they’re the girls on the court or the girls on the bench that are getting us fired up and giving us the momentum that we need.” Versailles had lots of momentum early in Saturday’s state championship match. In the first two games, Gilmour Academy never led by more than two points with Versailles taking the first two sets 26-24 and 25-23. The first set had six ties and three lead changes while the second set had five ties and one lead change. Versailles had a 60 percent attacking percentage in both of the first two sets while withstanding the attack from Gilmour Academy, who had attacking percentages of 62 and 56 in the first two sets. “Some heavy hitters swinging really hard at us today, and we stuck

our lines really well, and they hit the floor when needed, and they did a great job,” Frilling said. “Same goes in the semifinal game, too. I saw defense like I’ve never seen before.” For seemingly the first time all day, Versailles played from behind in the third set, something it rarely did in the tournament. At 20-17 Gilmour Academy had its biggest lead of the day and ended up winning the set by three, 25-22. Gilmour then got off to a strong start in the fourth set, leading 6-1 early in the game. Versailles recovered to tie the match at 12-12 and was within one at 21-20, but Gilmour again pulled out the victory, 25-23, to force a decisive fifth set. “They stumped us a little bit in games three and four,” Frilling said. “I think No. 29, (Jess) Janota, just picked up her game to the next level and just took it to us. We knew that was going to be the first one out of the gate for game five. We needed to get her rotated to the back row and just swing harder and place the ball better than they did, and it was basically a battle of offense in there.” From a 2-2 tie in the fifth set, Versailles went on a 4-0 run to prompt a Gilmour Academy timeout. Junior Lauren Bruns and senior Brett Bey had a pair of big block assists in the set that helped give Versailles the edge. “I thought it was just awesome,” Bey said. “I have no words. We really connected, and I’m glad we did because that’s when the team needed us to step up and really do it for them.” “It gets the whole team fired up when they get those,” senior Kristin
