DeWine said one out of three rape kits have updated findings and are going back over kits as old as 20 years for new evidence. “The technology is that much better,” DeWine said. Also, DeWine said the attorney general’s office would like to see more law enforcement officials update their mental health training in dealing with public incidents regarding mentally ill victims or defendants. “I encourage everyone to get more officer training,” DeWine said, citing examples of officer safety in regards to incidents.

Duchak said the attorney general’s office also uses the BCI’s crime lab for DNA analysis as well. Duchak said most of the concern in the local law enforcement lies in Columbus with Governor John Kasich

and state legislation. “That’s where the rubber meets the road,” Duchak said. “Every agency, city included, numbers are down and with House Bill 86 looking at restructuring sentences to lower penalties, it’s going to put a lot more stress on local law enforcement — especially at the county level with the jails.”

Legion to collect funds for vets

Dressed to Thrill

Luke Gronneberg | Sidney Daily News

Chatting at the Compassionate Care of Shelby County Champagne Luncheon and Fashion Show recently are, l-r, WHIO-TV news anchor John Paul, of Kettering, the new executive director of Compassionate Care, Traci Milanese, and WHIO-TV news anchor Cheryl McHenry, of Dayton. The event was at the Piqua Country Club and raised more than $10,000.

Members of Sidney American Legion Post 217 have joined with hundreds of other American Legion Posts in Ohio to help make this Christmas memorable for hospitalized veterans. They are doing it by collecting funds for the annual American Legion of Ohio “Gifts for Yanks” program. Members of Post 217 will be collecting funds one day only this year on Saturday. Donation kettles will be located at the retail entrance of Walmart and Sidney Food Town. This is the 66th year the Ohio American Legion is pooling funds from posts for gifts and activities benefitting

veterans in Ohio’s state hospitals, VA medical centers, outpatient clinics and the Ohio Veteran’s Homes at Sandusky and Georgetown. The program’s name is the same as the one initiated by comedian Eddie Cantor during World War II. “This effort is not limited to members of the Legion”, said Commander Tom Clay. “We welcome contributions from individuals and business establishments to help finance the state-wide program costing nearly $400,000. Checks may be made payable to Gifts for Yanks and sent to the local chairman, Rick Lunsford, at Sidney American Legion

– Post 217, P.O. Box 297, Sidney, OH 45365.” In addition to distributing individual gifts to veteran patients, the Ohio American Legion is also contributing to each of the five gift shops at the VA hospitals, where patients may select gifts to send to their families, and nearly $20,000 for purchase of canteen books for VA patients. The program funds also will provide televisions, radios and other electronic equipment for the VA hospitals and the Ohio Veterans’ Homes and more than $100,000 on other-than-Christmas activities for VA and state hospital patients, as well as year round recreation opportunities.

Women more at risk of COPD


CINCINNATI — Women are 37 percent more likely to have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) than men and now account for more than half of all deaths attributed to COPD in the nation. The American Lung Association’s “Taking Her Breath Away: The Rise of COPD in Women,” examines the nation’s third leading cause of death and its increased prevalence among women in the United States. More than seven million women in the United States currently have COPD, and millions more have symptoms but have yet to be diagnosed. The number of deaths among women from COPD has more than quadrupled since 1980, and since 2000 the disease has claimed the lives of more

women than men in this country each year. “What we now know is that more women than men in this country are dying from COPD, and nearly half of women currently living with COPD don’t even know they have it,” said MeiLan Han, M.D., medical director, Women’s Respiratory Health Program at the University of Michigan Health System, and national spokesperson for the American Lung Association’s “Taking Her Breath Away” report. “Leadership in public health and health care at the national, state and local levels must urgently confront this deep-rooted and deadly disease head on.” COPD is a progressive lung disease with no known cure that slowly robs its sufferers of the ability to draw


life-sustaining breath. Only heart disease and cancer kill more Americans than COPD does. Smoking is the primary cause of COPD, but there are other important causes such as air pollution. The report identifies an interplay of risk-factor exposures, biological susceptibility and sociocultural factors contributing to COPD’s disproportionate burden on women. Foremost, the rise of COPD in women is closely tied to the success of tobacco industry marketing. Cigarette smoking was rare among women in the early 20th century, but started increasing in earnest in the late 1960s after the tobacco industry began aggressively targeting its deadly products specifically to women. While nationwide antitobacco campaigns and policy changes have successfully decreased smoking rates for both women and men in the recent past, the tobacco industry’s success in addicting women smokers long ago is still resulting in new cases of COPD and other tobacco-related illness in those women as they have aged. Other key findings include: • Since COPD has historically been thought of as a “man’s disease,” women are underdiagnosed and undertreated for COPD. • Women are more vulnerable than men to lung damage from cigarette smoke and other pollutants. • Women with COPD have more frequent disease flare-ups-a sudden worsening of COPD symptoms that is often caused by a cold or other lung infection. • Effective treatment of COPD is complicated, and women don’t always get the kind of care that meets their needs. The American Lung Association calls on government agencies, the research and funding community, insurers and health systems, employers, clinicians, women and their families to take steps to address this deadly disease. These steps are detailed in the full report, and include strengthening the public health response to COPD; increasing investment in gender-specific COPD research; expanding efforts to protect everyone from harmful exposures that cause COPD such as cigarette smoke and outdoor air pollution; and implementing health care systems changes to improve the timeliness and quality of COPD care. “It’s time for the millions of women like me who are living with COPD to break their silence and speak out about the toll that COPD is taking on our lives,” said Grace Anne Dorney Koppel, patient and national spokesperson for COPD awareness. “We need to lead the charge for access to adequate disease management services and social support that will empower us to treat the disease as early as possible and improve the quality of our lives.” This report is part of the Lung Association’s Disparities in Lung Health Series.

Today in History The Associated Press

Today is Wednesday, Nov. 20, the 324th day of 2013. There are 41 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 20, 1947, Britain’s future queen, Princess Elizabeth, married Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, at Westminster Abbey. On this date: In 1620, Peregrine White was born aboard the Mayflower in Massachusetts Bay; he was the first child born of English parents in present-day New England. In 1789, New Jersey became the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights. In 1910, revolution broke out in Mexico, led by Francisco I. Madero. In 1925, Robert F. Kennedy was born in Brookline, Mass. In 1929, the radio program “The Rise of the Goldbergs” debuted on the NBC Blue Network. In 1945, 22 out of 24 indicted Nazi officials went on trial (one in absentia) before an international war crimes tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany. In 1959, the United Nations issued its Declaration of the Rights of the Child. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy held a news conference in which he announced the end of the naval quarantine of Cuba imposed during the missile crisis, and the signing of an executive order prohibiting discrimination in federal housing facilities. In 1967, the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Clock at the Commerce Department ticked past 200 million. In 1969, the Nixon administration announced a halt to residential use of the pesticide DDT as part of a total phaseout. A group of American Indian activists began a 19-month occupation of Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay. In 1975, after nearly four decades of absolute rule, Spain’s General Francisco Franco died, two weeks before his 83rd birthday. In 1982, in one of college football’s oddest finales, the University of California used five laterals to score a disputed winning touchdown on the last play of a game against Stanford, 25-20. In 1992, fire seriously damaged Windsor Castle, the favorite weekend home of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. In 2000, Lawyers for Al Gore and George W. Bush battled before the Florida Supreme Court over whether the presidential election recount should be allowed to continue. Ten years ago: Michael Jackson was booked on suspicion of child molestation in Santa Barbara, Calif. (Jackson was later acquitted at trial.) Record producer Phil Spector was charged with murder in the shooting death of an actress, Lana Clarkson, at his home in Alhambra, Calif., in February 2003. (Spector’s first trial ended with a hung jury in 2007; he was convicted of second-degree murder in 2009 and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison.) Suicide bombers blew up trucks in Istanbul, Turkey, at the British consulate and at a Londonbased bank, killing 32 people. Tens of thousands of demonstrators in London burned an effigy of President Bush to show their anger over the Iraq war. In Miami, trade ministers from across the Americas gave final approval to a framework for the world’s largest free trade bloc as police clashed with hundreds of demonstrators.

Kangaroo leads officers on chase MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — Officers in West Texas who answered calls about a kangaroo hopping along a road helped capture the pet and return the animal to its owner. Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter says deputies thought dispatchers were crazy when calls came in Tuesday night from people who said they saw a kangaroo. Patrol car video shows some of the chase along a rural highway near Midland. Deputies helped corner the 4-foot-tall kangaroo as the owner offered a treat to the animal, then grabbed the pet. Painter said Wednesday that Midland County has an exotic animals ordinance and owners must notify the sheriff’s office. Authorities are checking to see if a pet kangaroo falls under that category.

Gettysburg Address honored Mark Scolforo Associated Press

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — In solemnity, thousands gathered at a central Pennsylvania battlefield park Tuesday to honor a speech given 150 years ago that President Abraham Lincoln predicted would not be long remembered. The inspirational and famously short Gettysburg Address was praised for reinvigorating national ideals of freedom, liberty and justice amid a Civil War that had torn the country into pieces. “President Lincoln sought to heal a nation’s wounds by defining what a nation should be,” said Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, calling Lincoln’s words superb, his faith deep and his genius profound. “Lincoln wrote his words on paper, but he also inscribed them in our hearts.”

Echoing Lincoln, keynote speaker and Civil War historian James McPherson said the president took the dais in November 1863 at a time when it looked like the nation “might indeed perish from the earth.” “The Battle of Gettysburg became the hinge of fate on which turned the destiny of that nation and its new birth of freedom,” McPherson said. In the July 1863 battle, considered the turning point of the war, Union forces fought back a Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania. Lincoln’s speech was delivered more than four months later, at the dedication of a national cemetery to bury the battle’s casualties. In the short oration, he spoke of how democracy itself rested upon “the proposition that all men are created equal,” a profound and politically risky statement for the time. Slavery and

the doctrine of states’ rights would not hold in the “more perfect union” of Lincoln’s vision. “In 272 words, he put together what everyone was

thinking, what everyone should know,” said park historian John Heiser. Because of varying transcriptions, scholars generally put the text at 268 to 272 words.

Beirut suicide bombings kill 23 Diaa Hadid and Zeina Karam Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) — Suicide bombers struck the Iranian Embassy on Tuesday, killing 23 people, including a diplomat, and wounding more than 140 others in a “message of blood and death” to Tehran and Hezbollah — both supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The double bombing in a Shiite district of Beirut pulled Lebanon further into a conflict that has torn apart the deeply divided country, and came as Assad’s troops, aided

by Hezbollah militants, captured a key town near the Lebanese border from rebels. The bombing was one of the deadliest in a series of attacks targeting Hezbollah and Shiite strongholds in Lebanon in recent months. An al-Qaida-linked group said it carried out the attack as payback for Hezbollah’s backing of Assad forces against the mainly Sunni rebels as the Syrian civil war increasingly becomes a confrontation between regional powers. The Syrian army’s border offensive is part of a larger government push that started last

month and has seen forces loyal to Assad firmly seizing the momentum in the war, taking one rebel stronghold after another. The attacks raised fears in Lebanon that Islamic extremists, now on the defensive in Syria, would increasingly hit back in Lebanon. The country is suffering the effects of competing sectarian loyalties. “People fight outside (Lebanon), but send their messages through Lebanon. With bombs,” said a mechanic whose store windows were shattered by the blasts. The midmorning explosions hit the neighborhood of Janah,

Lebanese army investigators inspect at the scene where two explosions have struck near the Iranian Embassy killing nearly two dozen, in Beirut, Lebanon, Tuesday. The blasts in south Beirut’s neighborhood of Janah also caused extensive damage on the nearby buildings and the Iranian mission. The area is a stronghold of the militant Hezbollah group, which is a main ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad in the civil war next door. It’s not clear if the blasts are related to Syria’s civil war.

Beagle’s nose predicts few polar bear cubs Dan Sewell Associated Press

CINCINNATI (AP) — A specially trained beagle’s smell test for polar bear pregnancies predicts there will be few new cubs for U.S. zoos this year — although a romantic trip to Pittsburgh apparently turned out well for a female bear in San Diego. Animal conservation scientists at the Cincinnati Zoo worked with a dog trainer in

Kansas to devise the test being tried out this year. Zoos around the country provided fecal samples that the 2-year-old dog named Elvis has been trained to sniff for proteins that scientists say are found only from pregnant polar bears. Erin Curry of the Cincinnati Zoo’s Center for Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife said that with nearly all samples from 14 zoos checked, the Elvis test indicates this year’s cub class will be

similar to last year’s, when only three cubs were born in U.S. zoos. “Probably about the same,” Curry said. “We’re still waiting on a few (results).” Confirming pregnancies in the massive bears has been difficult, and zoo officials say knowing would help them manage the threatened species. They can provide dens with extra bedding, step up video monitoring and line up staff and volunteers for around-theclock “cub watches.

In an Oct. 28 file photo, Elvis, a 2-year-old beagle, sniffs polar bear protein samples at Iron Heart Performance Dog Center in Shawnee, Kan. Confirming pregnancies of the massive bears, a threatened species, has been difficult, and zoo officials say knowing can help make sure they and the Mama bears are ready for birthing and raising cubs.

Options From page 1 The first choice, said Scheu, is to replace the expiring 9.9 mill emergency property tax with a 1.25 percent earned income tax. The second choice is to replace the expiring property tax with a renewal property tax. The third choice is no replacement and the district must absorb the $4.5 million it will lose with the expiring property tax. There will also be a space for comments and suggestions from the district’s residents. The newsletter will be sent to 13,100 people. “The levy defeat in August and November showed us the voters rejected the idea of a traditional 1 percent income tax,” said Scheu. “The earned income tax will place the burden of the tax on the people who are working. This shrinks the pool from where the money is collected from.” Scheu explained the board could place a renewal of the property tax on the May ballot. Currently, the district is collecting 10.2 mills in property taxes because the property values in the district have been reduced. The emergency levy, which expires

Dec. 31, had a set amount which has to be collected each year. If property values increase or decrease, the millage is adjusted accordingly. “We could reduce the 10.2 mills to 9.9 mills on a tax levy,” said Scheu. “That would mean there would be $100,000 less coming to the school district. “We also have the 0.8 mill permanent improvement levy which expired in 2008 that the board opted not to put on the ballot,” said Scheu. “That $250,000 comes out of the general fund every year to pay for permanent improvements for the district.” The district, said Scheu, will have three opportunities — May, August and November — to pass some type of levy in 2014. “We know we have challenges,” said Watkins. “There are limited avenues for school districts to raise revenue — property taxes and income taxes.” New legislation in the state, he said. has removed rollbacks and homestead exemptions from property owners. If “new” property tax levies are approved, then “taxpayers will pay the whole

thing — there are no rollbacks,” said Watkins. A renewal would include rollbacks and homestead exemptions. “Our choices are income tax or a renewal,” said Watkins. If an earned income tax is placed on the ballot, and approved, there would be a gap of when its collection will begin and when the last collection from the expiring property tax is received. Watkins said the district would be facing $3 million less next year before the income tax collection would start. He said the property tax and income tax could be combined into one issue on the ballot. “My fear is if it (ballot) has an income tax on it, it won’t be favorable to the voters,” said Watkins. We have to do something to replace the expiring property tax.” Scheu said that an earned income tax had been placed on the ballot years ago and it failed by a two to one vote. “I think the survey results will be interesting,” said Bill Ankney, board member. “We’ve had great stuff in the newspaper, but a lot of people I talk to say they don’t

get the paper.” Board member Kelly Rees said, “The district can’t absorb $3 million during the gap of collections.” Steve Smith, board member, questioned whether the 9.9 mill renewal and 0.8 mill permanent improvement levy could be combined into one levy. “The 0.8 would be a brand new levy so it couldn’t be combined,” said Watkins. “We would be in danger of having two separate issues on the ballot. There’s a chance that the voters would vote for the littler amount of tax.” And because the 0.8 mill levy would be a new levy, there would be no rollback or homestead exemption for the property owner. There are two steps to be taken to place a levy on the May ballot — approval of a resolution of necessity, which must be approved by Dec. 16, and a resolution to proceed, which must be approved during the board’s first meeting in 2014. “The board is going to have to make a decision on which way to go,” said Scheu.

Meyer emphasizes better focus Jim Naveau

COLUMBUS – Warren Ball might have been as surprised as anyone at how many times Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer mentioned his name during his weekly press conference on Monday. Ball, a sophomore running back who has carried the ball only 13 times this season, was deployed seven times by Meyer on Tuesday to emphasize a point he made after Ohio State’s 60-35 win over Illinois last Saturday. In the aftermath of that win by No. 3 Ohio State (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten), Meyer said, “We have to make sure our focus is on getting better each week instead of all the national stuff,” he said. “I think I’m learning a lesson to just shut my mouth and quit worrying about this and that.” So, sticking with that policy, whenever Meyer was asked a question about Ohio State’s position and possibilities in the BCS standings, he talked only about improving the team and each time referred to coaching Ball to become a better player

on the Buckeyes’ kick coverage teams. After the fifth or sixth time, Meyer smiled and said, “Poor Warren.” Ohio State is third in this week’s BCS standings. Alabama leads the rankings at .9981, followed by Florida State at .9661, Ohio State at .8869 and Baylor at .8856. If Baylor beats Oklahoma State this weekend, it will probably jump over Ohio State into third place next week. Ohio State will be at home against Indiana (4-6, 2-4 Big Ten) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday as it continues its pursuit of the BCS leaders. The Buckeyes also will be going for a school-record 23rd win in a row. Maybe the biggest concern for Meyer in that game will be getting some of OSU’s injured players back on the field. He rattled off the names of nine scholarship players who have been lost for the season because of injuries, including starting safety Christian Bryant. The most immediate injury situation confronting OSU, though, is the health of players like linebackers Curtis Grant and Joshua Perry, defensive end Joey

Bosa and offensive tackle Jack Mewhort. Grant and Perry both missed the Illinois game. Grant is battling a sprained ankle and Perry slipped on a patch of ice and hit his head. Perry is “probable” and the chances of Grant returning are “50-50,” Meyer said. Bosa left last Saturday’s game with a neck strain. X-rays of his neck were negative and Meyer said he is “pretty confident’ Bosa will play Saturday. Mewhort missed several plays because of a hyperextended knee. He said the knee is “a little sore” but that he expects to be 100 percent by Saturday. “We’re beat up a little bit,” Meyer said. Getting the two linebackers healthy is one of the top needs for Ohio State. That position is so thin that OSU had to play a not-ready-for-primetime sophomore Camren Williams and a walk-on, Joe Burger, at linebacker against Illinois alongside Ryan Shazier. “We have to get those guys back, Josh Perry and Curtis Grant, we have to get them back. We have to, or we got a problem,” Meyer said.

Ohio State ranks first in the Big Ten in scoring at 49.4 points a game and Indiana is second at 39.1. A year ago, Indiana scored 22 points in the last 10 ½ minutes to make OSU work harder than expected in a 52-49 win. “This team can score points in bunches. We’ve got to control the clock,” Meyer said. Wisconsin was the team in control from start to finish against Indiana last week, though, when it won 51-3 and rolled up 554 yards rushing against the Hoosiers’ defense.

Golson wants back in at ND SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson has submitted a request to be readmitted to Notre Dame. Coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday he expects to learn in mid-December if Golson will be allowed to return. If he is admitted, Golson would be eligible to practice with the Irish for a bowl game but wouldn’t be eligible to play. Golson, who led the Irish to the national title game

last year, was suspended by the school for the fall semester for using what he called “poor judgment on a test.” While the Irish wait to see if Golson returns, Kelly said the team is healthier, yet still banged up, after taking a rare week off from practice because of injuries. “We’re like everybody else in college football at this point of the year. We’ve got guys that are just fighting through it right now,” he said.

400-pound running back a sight to behold WHITE SWAN, Wash. (AP) — A tiny Washington high school is home to perhaps the largest running back anywhere in the country — amateur or professional. At 400 pounds, Tony Picard racked up 576 yards rushing and seven touchdowns this year at White Swan High School. The Yakima Herald-Republic reports that his coach put Picard at running back because he was so athletic for his size. Many NFL running backs weigh half as much as Picard. Current NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles weighs in at 208 pounds. Picard’s size also rivals some of the largest NFL linemen around. Picard hasn’t been the featured running back at White Swan, a school of less than 300 students. Smaller, quicker players have typically led the running game while Picard has been a reliable shortyardage back. This year, he averaged nearly 6 yards per carry. Video of Picard’s rum-

bling runs has drawn more than 2 million views on YouTube. The clips show the 17-year-old plowing through defenders while also showing swiftness on his feet. Picard hopes to go on to play college football. “You’ll see the other team just kind of looking at him when they’re shaking hands, like, ‘Oh my gosh, do I really have to tackle this guy?’” Picard’s coach, Andy Bush, told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Picard didn’t draw much outside attention in the last few years as he helped his team to the playoffs three seasons in a row. That began to change this year when a photograph of Picard showed the running back ready to trample a defender who looked about one-third his body weight. “It takes multiple guys to take me down, four or five,” Picard told “Good Morning America.” “I kind of take advantage of being this size.” Picard also plays varsity basketball.

100 years Nov. 20, 1913 A number of the friends of “Wallie” Timeus, proprietor of the Court Exchange Saloon on the south side of the square, who is to retire from business Saturday night, gave him a pleasant surprise in the Timeus building last evening and served him a big goose dinner. He was presented with a handsome gold headed umbrella a memento of the occasion. ––––– The Lang Brewing Co. of Piqua has made application for a wholesale liquor license in this city.

Enroute home from his regular run through the western part of the county last night, Tony’s truck ran out of gas on the Bunker Hill Road. When he did not show up a search was started over his route by his brother, Joe, and local officers. He was found about 4 a.m. today near his truck, unharmed but nearly frozen from exposure. The gas supply became exhausted about 10 p.m. and efforts to arouse nearby neighbors failed. Motorists also passed him up, apparently fearful of harmful results. The sleet storm that started about midnight

and later the heavy snow added to his discomfort. ––––– As the annual membership roll call of the American Red Cross moved toward its final day on Wednesday, Frank Marshall, county chairman announced the appointment of a first aid highway committee.

Sparks and Arthur Marker. 50 Years Nov. 20, 1963 For the first time in the 43 years of the Sidney Kiwanis Club’s history, the members are organizing and sponsoring a new club.

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013: This year you tune in to your emotions more when making important choices. You will make excellent decisions as a result. You often pick up on others’ subconscious agendas. If you are single, by late summer 2014, you might meet someone who knocks your socks off. In fact, you could have several experiences with different people like this. Only commit when and if you are sure. If you are attached, your sense of harmony spills over to your sweetie, which adds to the intensity that binds you. CANCER is as emotional as you are, but he or she can be a lot harder to deal with. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-Soso; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Touch base with your inner voice before launching into a situation involving real estate, security or family. Your responsibilities are changing rapidly, so adjust. You have very little choice anyway. A discussion could be helpful. Tonight: Homeward bound. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You need to touch base with several people in your immediate environment. Once you sit down with them, you will see the value in their feedback. Make an adjustment and use the best of others’ ideas. You will have a lot of support. Tonight: Hang out with friends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Stay sensitive to your

finances and to what others need. A boss could take a stand that might not be based in reality. Make a point to reach out to a partner who has a lot of important feedback. Listen to what is being shared and apply it to a key situation. Tonight: Your treat. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Stay centered, and know what you want. Reach out to someone at a distance who is smart and creative. Understand what needs to happen between you and a controlling associate. Know when to take a step back and let this person take the reins. Tonight: Think “weekend plans.” LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You might be coming from a visceral level when dealing with a partner. Take time to acknowledge those you pass every day with perhaps a brief nod. Stop and say hello to someone who actually makes your life seem better. Start a conversation. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH You could be driven by various factors, but your friends will be the most important. A meeting could reveal much more about a situation than you expected. Rethink your approach to this matter. You’ll receive much more information if you stay open. Tonight: Be with friends. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Your good intentions come through for someone who is a part of your daily life. An important but changeable

situation that you are dealing with could be quite disconcerting. You might feel a lack of control. Avoid a power play at all costs. Tonight: Till the wee hours. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Reach out for more information as you explore a creative or special opportunity. You probably will change your tune once you get more facts. Avoid charging into a situation without first gathering as much information as possible. Tonight: Let your imagination lead the way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH You function at your peak when working with a trusted associate. You might find that your creativity surges when you feel comfortable. Your finances could be subject to change. Perhaps taking strong action will turn the tide in your favor. Tonight: Follow someone else’s lead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Others feel as though they can handle everything you can. You might want some free time for a personal matter or to complete another project. Go along with others’ ideas. You might find that you have more help than you thought possible. Tonight: Out among the crowds. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You might be focused on completion. You have a lot on your plate. Many people like the way you do things. As a

Fay gets 2 life sentences Greg Sowinski Civitas Media

OTTAWA — Michael Fay left the courtroom Monday to spend what likely will be the rest of his life in prison as the family of the two teenagers he killed tried to pick up the pieces of their lives destroyed by an unexplainable act of violence. Fay was sentenced to life in prison with the chance for parole after serving 30 years for each of the two murders. Judge Randall Basinger ordered the sentences be served one after another, meaning Fay, who now is 18, will not be eligible for parole until he’s 77. It was an emotional day in the courtroom for the family of Blake Romes, 17, and Blaine Romes, 14. Fay shot and killed the two boys on May 9 after an argument during which Fay spun into an uncontrollable rage. Fay delivered a statement, most of which sounded like a victim’s impact statement not a criminal defendant’s apology. He apologized to the Romes family while saying he loved the two boys he killed and considered them brothers. Basinger said Fay’s statement showed how much of a psychopath he really was. “Mr. Fay, the level of calculated and coldblooded violence in this case is nearly incomprehensive,” Basinger said. “I find it chilling another human being could commit, not just one or two, but a series of thoughtless acts.” The judge rehashed parts of the crime, including Fay’s confession in which he admitted to disposing of one of the bodies in “a sewage ditch.” The judge also blasted Fay for the numerous stories he made up. “You are a ruthless murderer and a liar,” Basinger said. “You present an extreme danger to society and are not fit to live in society.” Before he left for prison, Fay sat listening to nine family members, most through the reading of statements by victims’ advocates, tell how the deaths of the two teenagers ruined their lives. The mother of the two dead

teens, Michelle Grothause, did not express anger toward Fay. She said Fay had had a painful childhood with a lot of struggles. It seemed as though Grothause was trying to explain and make sense of Fay’s actions. She said Fay was a good kid but had a lot of pain bottled up inside. “There is no justice for any of this,” Grothause said in her statement. Grothause urged all parents, guidance counselors and teachers to pay attention to warning signs and assist children in getting help so they don’t fall through the cracks. “I don’t know what is fair and just anymore. I feel [Fay] should get the help he was passed over so many times,” Grothause said in her statement. The pain and struggles she spoke about were allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of an older foster brother, Fay’s attorney Bill Kluge said. “We are a product of what our environment has done to us,” Kluge said. “It’s important you all understand how we got to this point today.” Fay’s father was a violent drug abuser and Fay, himself, was bipolar, Kluge said. Fay never discussed his problems with his family, instead chose to try to manage by keeping the problems to himself. Eventually, Fay was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder because of the sexual assault, Kluge said. Anytime Fay got close to someone, somehow that person seemed to leave Fay’s life, Kluge said. “I don’t know if that will help you understand what happened with Mike in his life or care about it. These things just don’t pop up out of the blue,” Kluge said. In his statement, Fay spent most of his time talking about the love he had for the teens he killed or how he would remember them. He told their family how much the teens loved them. “To Blake and Blaine, you already know I love

you with everything in my heart,” he said. After the hearing, Assistant Putnam County Prosecutor Todd Schroeder said the question of why Fay killed the two boys still has not been answered. “I think the conclusion out of all of this is that it is a question that just cannot be satisfactorily answered,” Schroeder said. During the hearing, Schroeder told the judge about the murders that began with an argument over whether Fay’s older brother would be moving back into a cramped trailer with the Romes boys, Fay, Grothause, and Fay’s mother. Fay did not want his brother living with them but the Romes brothers said it was OK. Fay’s anger grew with each passing minute. That night, Blaine was readying himself for a class trip to Washington, D.C., the next day. Eventually, both brothers went to bed. “As they slept, the defendant continued to be angry and couldn’t calm down,” Schroeder said. Fay took a shower then drove to Lima where he ate at a fast-food restaurant before going to a storage facility to retrieve a .22-caliber handgun. He returned to the trailer, put the gun to Blaine’s head and waited for passing train before pulling the trigger, hoping the train’s noise would be enough to cover up the sound of the shot, Schroeder said. Fay walked into the room where Blake slept and shot him in the head but somehow the bullet to the head didn’t kill Blake. Fay later beat Blake and eventually strangled him after Blake began making ghastly sounds. After both boys were dead, Fay dumped Blaine’s body in a ditch outside of town on county Road 7. Blake’s body was found under the trailer behind the skirting. Fay fled to Columbus to try to find his father, Schroeder said. Fay did not have a criminal record and never had an angry or violent exchange with the Romes’ teens before the night of the killings, Schroeder said.
