Schools locked down; suspect being sought Kathy Leese NEW BREMEN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Minster and New Bremen Local Schools were in lockdown mode Thursday as a precaution while authorities sought a New Bremen student who may have been armed and who reportedly committed thefts in Shelby and Auglaize counties. As of late afternoon, the search for the suspect was continuing. He is reportedly facing possible charges in both counties. Shelby County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office Chief Deputy Jim Frye said the youth may have been involved in the theft of a shotgun and a semi automatic rifle from the home of his grandparents in Shelby County. The guns and a pick-up truck were stolen from 6864 State Route 119. Frye described the suspect as 17 years old, five foot, seven inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. He was last known to be driving the stolen pick-up, a maroon Chevy with a dent on the right passenger bumper. The Ohio license plate is ENM 9083. The truck had a full tank of gas, See SCHOOLS | 2

Rec Board sees new logo The Sidney Recreation Board at its meeting Monday viewed the new logo for the Parks and Recreation Department. Duane Gaier, parks and recreation director, displayed the final version of the logo. This logo will represent the parks only and will be used on T-shirts, letterheads, all parks signs, and in advertisements. The logo was designed by Behr Design in Sidney. In other business, the board was told about GloriFive volunteers. This is a group of local volunteers that collect used athletic equipment and provide it to local underprivileged children. The group was organized in 2012. More information about the group is available at its website, On Aug. 24, a local group trimmed the shrubs at the three south-end beauty areas. A total of eight volunteers did the job.

The Senior Center auditorium floor is scheduled for rehab. The company will start the process Sept. 16. The floor will be sanded down to the bare wood and then a sealant will be applied along with shuffleboard lines, and new lines for the game of pickle ball will be provided. Cargill donated half the funds to help sponsor this $9,900 project. Jennie Rogers, recreation specialist, presented a reported summarizing recreation program and swimming pool activities for 2013. Katie McMillan, City Council’s representative on the board, informed the board that council is currently working on the five-year plan and in 2014 the parks should be receiving two new play structures. Along with this, the parks will be receiving a couple pieces of mowing equipment. As with all of the other city departments,

parks staffing will remain reduced at the 2013 levels, and many of the capital projects requested will go unfunded. Gaier said the new park ranger, Justin Aselage, will begin his duties with the Parks and Recreation Department Sept. 17. He has been training with the Police Department for the last three months. Gaier mentioned several complaints have been received by the parks staff concerning dogs not on a leash in the parks, especially Tawawa Park. Signs will be posted in the coming days reminding park users of the city ordinance. It will also be a point of emphasis for the park ranger when he is on duty as a full-time ranger to curtail this violation.

GOP leaders confounded on stopgap spending bill

WASHINGTON (AP) — With a military strike against Syria on hold, President Barack Obama tried Thursday to reignite momentum for his second-term domestic agenda. But his progress could hinge on the strength of his standing on Capitol Hill after what even allies acknowledge were missteps in the latest foreign crisis. “It is still important to recognize that we have a lot of things left to do here in this government,” Obama told his Cabinet,

starting a sustained White House push to refocus the nation on matters at home as key benchmarks on the budget and health care rapidly approach. “The American people are still interested in making sure that our kids are getting the kind of education they deserve, that we are putting people back to work,” Obama said. The White House plans to use next week’s five-year anniversary of the 2008 financial collapse to warn Republicans that shutting down the government or failing to raise the debt limit could drag down the still-fragile economy. With Hispanic

Heritage Month to begin Monday, Obama is also expected to press for a stalled immigration overhaul and urge minorities to sign up for health care exchanges beginning Oct. 1. Among the events planned for next week is a White House ceremony highlighting Americans working on immigrant and citizenship issues. Administration officials will also promote overhaul efforts at naturalization ceremonies across the country. On Sept. 21, Obama will speak at the Congressional Black Caucus Gala, where he’ll trumpet what the administra-

tion says are benefits of the president’s health care law for African-Americans and other minorities. Two major factors are driving Obama’s push to get back on track with domestic issues after three weeks of Syria dominating the political debate. Polls show the economy, jobs and health care remain Americans’ top concerns. And Obama has a limited window to make progress on those matters in a second term, when lame-duck status can quickly creep up on presidents, particularly if they start losing public support.

Award From page 1 Zimmerman acknowledged and thanked his probate staff in attendance: Chief Deputy Clerk Patricia Rosengarten for the creation of the Checklists and Compliance Orders, and Deputy Clerks Carla Busse and Patty Miller for their continual review and updates to them. Zimmerman further noted his staff’s dedication to making their court more accessible and user-friendly for all filers. The Shelby County Probate Court’s “Checklist” program helps attorneys and pro se filers to provide the necessary probate forms required in most probate proceedings. This “Checklist” provides attorneys and pro se filers with

the tools they need to process pleadings in a timely fashion and avoid delays due to omissions and errors. When the Checklist is not followed, the Shelby County Probate Court issues an Order for Compliance, which mirrors the Checklist. This court order gives filers time to amend documents or provide omitted documents. There are 88 probate courts in Ohio and as many different expectations about what sorts of pleadings should be filed and how. Before the Checklist program was initiated, clerks of the Shelby County Probate Court spent a great deal of time asking filers to provide missing documents or to

correct documents that contained omissions or did not comply with the Ohio Revised Code or with local, civil or superintendence rules. The checklists specifically outline what the court expects of filers and even provides references to applicable rules and Ohio law. Zimmerman, who accepted the award on behalf of the Shelby County Probate Court, said, “Our Checklist streamlines the court’s operations, but it does much more. It also provides attorneys and pro se filers with references so they can quickly check the rules and statutes that apply to Checklist requirements.”

“The Shelby County Probate Court has effectively streamlined its filing process so that probate matters can be handled more efficiently. Not only does this program benefit attorneys and pro se filers, but the efficiencies it has created is a boon to the general public,” said Hollingsworth. Last year, Judge Rosemarie A. Hall accepted the Innovative Court Programs and Practices Award on behalf of the Stark County Family Court for its “Never-Married Parents Program.” Award submissions are evaluated on criteria including creativity, the newness of the program and its effectiveness, as well as the transferability

of the concept to other courts and whether the program addresses significant issues that are regional in scope. The Ohio State Bar Association, founded in 1880, is a voluntary association representing approximately 25,000 members of the bench and bar of Ohio as well as nearly 4,000 legal assistants and law students. Through its activities and the activities of its related organizations, the OSBA serves both its members and the public by promoting the highest standards in the practice of law and the administration of justice.

Schools From page 1 Frye said. The youth also allegedly stole cash from his parents’ home in Auglaize County. Frye said the youth is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Instead, anyone who sees him or the vehicle or has information

is asked to contact the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office by calling 9-1-1 or 937-498-1111, or the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office at 419-739-6565. Auglaize County Sheriff Allen Solomon confirmed that the manhunt was going on, but did not want

to release many details due to the ongoing investigation. “We’re checking locations where he might be, talking to kids who know him,” Solomon said. In a statement released Thursday afternoon, Solomon said the boy was reported missing at

approximately 7 a.m. from his rural New Bremen home by his father. At that time, it was discovered that the cash, truck and guns were missing. “It is unknown why the juvenile left his residence and where he was going,” Solomon stated. “Deputies

from Auglaize and Shelby County along with New Bremen and Minster Police searched the areas where the juvenile may have gone. At this point, he has not been located.” Solomon noted “we have sent a teletype out that he is missing and there is a warrant entered for his arrest.” Solomon said the suspect was last known to be wearing a T-shirt and gym shorts. New Bremen Local Schools Superintendent Howard Overman said New Bremen Police notified his district of a possible problem and “we went into a controlled lockdown. There wasn’t any immediate danger,”

Overman said students were informed of the situation. He said he felt the lockdown was important as a precaution. The lockdown lasted from approximately 9:45 a.m. to 1:25 p.m. Minster Police Chief Randy Houseworth said “there was a runaway report taken (that) indicated he might have weapons with him. There was no direct threat made to either school (New Bremen or Minster). He said that since the teenager is from the area, it was felt a lockdown was necessary. The lockdown lasted from 9:50 a.m. until approximately 11:48 a.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC is seeking to reboot the “Today” show by adding Carson Daly, unveiling a new studio set that resembles a “hipster New York City apartment” and a sharper focus gleaned from studies of what viewers and lapsed viewers say they want. The new look will debut next Monday, and NBC executives offered a studio tour Thursday. But the real work is in the content, and new NBC News President Deborah Turness — just five weeks into her job — has made a “Today” reboot a top priority. Daly will be stationed in the studio’s new “Orange Room,” where he will provide continual updates on how the show’s stories are trending online and what kind of feedback viewers are offering through social media.

Onlookers watch from the shore as black smoke rises from a fire on the Seaside Heights, N.J. boardwalk Thursday. The fire started in the vicinity of an ice cream shop and burned several blocks of boardwalk and businesses in a town that was still rebuilding from damage caused by Superstorm Sandy.

who had just spent millions of dollars rebuilding their boardwalks, arcade games, pizza stands and bar and grills to be ready for the summer season. “It’s devastating; I’ve been crying all afternoon,” said Shirley Kreszl, who has rented a summer home in Seaside Park for decades. “Haven’t we been hit enough? We try to rebuild and just when we think we saved a little bit of our town, this happens. It’s just not fair.” Gov. Chris Christie, who raced to the fire scene, was typically blunt describing his thoughts as he approached the blaze. “I feel like I want to throw up,” he said. Koury said the fire caused several million dollars’ worth of dam-

age. At one point, she said, flames jumped across Ocean Avenue, the oceanfront street, and ignited two or three small houses but firefighters quickly doused them. A motel near the boardwalk also was engulfed in flames. For hours, two boardwalk businesses, an arcade and the Saw Mill Cafe, a popular Jersey shore bar, escaped the flames. But shortly before 7 p.m. both were engulfed in a huge orange fireball that rolled into the darkening sky. “I can’t believe this is happening,” Koury said as she watched the flames devour the structures. “Our small business people went through so much in the storm to get ready for summer and stay open all summer, and now it’s all gone. I just can’t believe it.”

Attention Seniors!


SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — A massive fire spitting fist-sized embers engulfed dozens of businesses along an iconic Jersey shore boardwalk Thursday, forcing workers to rip up stretches of walkway only recently replaced in the wake of Superstorm Sandy as they raced to contain the blaze’s advance. The 6-alarm blaze began in a frozen custard stand on the Seaside Park portion of the boardwalk around 2:30 p.m. and fanned by 15-20 mph winds from an approaching storm system, quickly spread north into Seaside Heights, the boardwalk town where the MTV series “Jersey Shore” was filmed — and where the October storm famously plunged a roller coast into the ocean. No serious injuries were reported as of 7 p.m., but the blaze continued to burn out of control and had destroyed all 32 businesses on the Seaside Park portion of the boardwalk, borough Councilwoman Nancy Koury told The Associated Press. An undetermined number of additional boardwalk businesses in Seaside Heights also were burned. “We’re going to be here for several days,” one firefighter said as he scurried toward the flames. The blaze tore the heart out of two popular Jersey shore resort communities whose livelihoods depend on summer tourism and

Justice: Judges must help reduce prisons population Andrew Welsh-Huggins Associated Press

COLUMBUS (AP) — Judges are “part of the problem” with Ohio’s soaring prison population and have an important role to play in handing out sentences and reducing the number of people behind bars, the state’s top judge said Thursday. Provisions of a 2011 law meant to reduce prison overcrowding have not been as successful as hoped for, requiring more diligence, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor of the Ohio Supreme Court said in a speech. Any attempt at reducing the number of offenders entering prison is directly tied to sentencing, she said. “We as judges must be part of the solution because we are certainly part of the problem,” she said. “We cannot take an attitude of out of sight, out of mind once offenders leave the courtroom.” O’Connor’s remarks came the same day a report said the state prison in Toledo has Ohio’s highest rates of inmate drug use, prisoner

homicides and staff turnover. The report by a legislative prison committee said inmate-oninmate and inmate-on-staff assaults jumped between 2010 and 2012. The prison had three inmate homicides in the past year, a figure the report called “abnormal.” The review of Toledo Correctional Institution also said inmates at the prison are openly disrespectful to staff. The prison began doublebunking inmates in 2011, according to the report by the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee. But prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said incidents of violence are down this year at Toledo as the state takes steps to address the problem. She said the report data come from a time when the prison began housing more high-security inmates. The state hired nine new guards, added employees to monitor disruptive inmates and made employees available at night to address prisoners’ concerns, she said. The prison has also boosted camera surveillance and taken steps that have reduced positive drug tests, Smith said.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction says Ohio’s already high population of 50,000 could soar to 52,000 in two years and top 53,000 in six years. To fix the problem, Director Gary Mohr has proposed working with judges to find ways to reduce prison commitments and with lawmakers to re-examine penalties for less serious crimes. He also wants a system modeled on one used for juvenile offenders to place more adult inmates in non-prison facilities closer to home. O’Connor said she is working with Mohr to find ways to lower the number of prisoners. Offenders entering the prison system today have committed more serious crimes, resulting in longer sentences, according to a report released last month by the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee. The number of women behind bars also is soaring, far outpacing the increase in the male population.

Pentagon eyes Vt. for missile interceptor site Wilson Ring Associated Press

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Department of Defense is considering a Vermont National Guard base as the possible location of an antiballistic missile launch site that would help protect the East Coast from a missile attack from Iran or other threats. The Vermont site is one of five from Ohio to Maine that will be evaluated by the Defense Department’s Missile Defense Agency as the possible home for an interceptor base that would be designed to shoot down ballistic missiles in mid-flight. All five sites are on land owned by the federal government and are operated by the Defense Department or the National Guard. No decision has been made to build the system, but the Pentagon is required to study the possible East Coast locations. Part of that study will be to identify the possible locations that would be looked at more closely.

The suggestion seemed to surprise the three members of Vermont’s congressional delegation, who first learned of the plan late Thursday morning. “I’ve always felt that the multiple billions spent on missile defense are a monumental waste of money, on technologically challenged systems, and I am emphatically against putting one of these sites in Vermont,” said Democratic U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy. Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent, and Democrat Rep. Peter Welch are also skeptical of the proposal. “My first impression is that this is a very bad idea and, for a wide variety of reasons, I do not believe that it will ever happen,” Sanders said. Welch was more blunt: “This is absurd. It’s the wrong location for a bad idea and dead on arrival.” If constructed, an undetermined number of the missiles installed in a yet-to-be-constructed base and made ready to respond in case of a mis-

sile attack against the U.S. Cost estimates range from $1 billion to $5 billion, including the cost of the missiles themselves. Earlier this year, two top military officers involved in missile defense told U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., there was no “validated military requirement” to build the East Coast site. In a June letter to Levin, Vice Admiral J.D. Syring, the director of the Missile Defense Agency, and Lt. Gen. Richard Formica, the commander of the Joint Functional Command for Integrated Missile Defense, said a better anti-missile investment would be improved sensors for other missile defense systems. “While a potential East Coast site would add operational capability it would also come at significant materiel development and service sustainment cost,” said their June 10 letter. Vermont’s Ethan Allen Training Site in Jericho and Underhill is located in eastern Chittenden County on the western slope of the Green Mountains. The

Maine location is at a Navy facility near Rangely. The other facilities that will be considered are Fort Drum, N.Y.; Camp Ravenna Joint Training Center, Ohio; and Fort Custer Training Center, Mich. The Defense Department has been directed to create an East Coast interceptor site in response to a perceived threat from Iran. The East Coast location would complement land-based sites at Alaska’s Fort Greely and California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. A Defense Department team will visit site to obtain information on basic infrastructure, including the electrical power supply, water resources, transportation access and other areas for assessing the suitability of a potential site. The next step will be for the Missile Defense Agency to identify three new sites where a formal Environmental Impact Statement would be conducted to identify a preferred location.

Utica woman accused of faking son’s cancer NEWARK (AP) — A central Ohio woman faked a cancer diagnosis for her 4-year-old son and shaved his head in a scheme that convinced him and others he was dying and bilked people out of donations, authorities said. Court records allege the boy was taken to a hospital for symptoms such as seizures. He underwent at least 20 blood tests, more than 150 hours of inpatient monitoring and other testing that found no problems, according to the records. His mother, Emily Creno

of Utica, is charged with one felony count of child endangerment. A prosecutor wouldn’t discuss the possibility of more charges, The Advocate in Newark reported. Creno, 31, didn’t comment in court Wednesday as her bond was set at $50,000, and she was ordered to have no unsupervised contact with her son, the newspaper said. Licking County Common Pleas Court records listed no attorney for Creno, who requested an application for a court-appointed defender.

Ohio’s GOP senator calls Syria strategy ‘confused’ Dan Sewell Associated Press

CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio’s Republican senator said Thursday that the Obama administration’s long-term strategy for Syria appears “very confused.” Sen. Rob Portman had decided to oppose authorizing a military strike, but the president asked Congress to hold off on voting this week while a diplomatic solution is sought. Portman told reporters that while he is very concerned about chemical weapons in Syria, he wouldn’t support U.S. military strikes without knowing what the goals were and without more international backing, particularly in the Middle East. “It is critical that before America begins a military action, that we know what the overall strategy is. And the long-term strategy here is, I believe, very confused,” Portman said. “Even after listening to the president’s

speech — and as always, the president delivered a good speech — but I did not think there was a clear, comprehensive strategy.” Secretary of State John Kerry began meetings Thursday with his Russian counterpart to try to reach agreement on the dismantling of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles, a potential alternative to the U.S. strikes the president wants in response to deadly chemical attacks on civilians that the U.S. blames on the Syrian government. “I am hopeful that this Russian proposal is real,” Portman said of the efforts. “I’m hopeful that we can address the problem of the chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria. I think they pose a danger to us as a country.” He said besides use by the Syrian government, the chemical weapons could fall into the hands of anti-U.S. terrorist groups, “more directly affecting our national security.”

Study finds Ohio counties vary in helping veterans DAYTON (AP) — Military veterans seeking emergency financial assistance might get it depending on which Ohio county they live in. A Dayton Daily News analysis (http://bit. ly/1aED6pY ) of veterans service commissions in the state’s 88 counties found a wide range of response rates. For example, Miami County in western Ohio spent more on financial assistance than 80 other counties, and was much more willing to approve applications than nearby Montgomery County, which includes Dayton and a much larger population. The Miami County veterans service commission spent 69 percent of its budget on aid. Montgomery County rejected nearly a third of aid requests, one of the highest denial rates in the state, the report found. Harrison County in eastern Ohio spent only 7 percent. David Fierst, an Army veteran and commission president, said the Montgomery commission wants to help as many veterans as possible, while also looking out for taxpayers who include veterans, “so they have an interest in us properly administering the funds as well.” The commissions have broad discretion in how to allocate spending on resources and benefits for veterans. The Daily News report published Thursday followed a recent state study that showed that the funding each commission receives varies widely since it’s based on a percentage of the county’s property tax collections and its veteran population, creating disparities between urban and rural areas. The 88 counties spent a total of $19.8 million on emergency aid in 2012, the Daily News reported. The assistance is meant for shortterm needs for housing, groceries or utilities. Miami County Veterans Service Commission President Joe Goetz said his agency is becoming stricter, limiting veterans to three emergency aid applications annual for up to $700. It also set a lifetime maximum of $10,000 and began giving out vouchers for groceries instead of cash in some cases. Clark County, which includes Springfield, doesn’t restrict numbers of applications, but has a higher denial rate than Miami. “It’s for short-term emergency situations; you’ve gotten into an emergency, not a case where you’re overextended and you need help every month, because we can’t do that,” said Cathy Ater, director of Clark County’s veterans commission. Some veterans complain that financial assistance should be handed out evenly based on need, not location. “If the guys need $3,000 to $4,000, they ought to get it,” said Bob Bailey, 90, a World War II Navy veteran who lives in Warren County in southwest Ohio. “If they need $20, they ought to get it.”

Boston airport apologizes for fire drill on 9/11 BOSTON (AP) — Officials at Boston’s Logan Airport are apologizing for holding a fire drill, complete with smoke and flames, on the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The two hijacked jets that were flown into the World Trade Center towers that day had taken off from Logan. Gov. Deval Patrick, who did not know in advance about the drill, calls the timing of it “dumb.” But he adds that he retained confidence in the leadership of the Massachusetts Port Authority, the public agency that runs the airport. The runway fire drill, announced on the airport’s Facebook page, drew harsh condemnation online. The port authority has apologized in a statement and says it “understands that it may have offended many of those touched by the events of Sept. 11.”

Women outrunning men in regaining jobs since recession Christopher S. Rugaber and Paul Wiseman

Women regain jobs lost in recession

AP Economics Writers

WASHINGTON (AP) — The slowly recovering U.S. job market has helped women rebound faster than men: They’ve now regained all the jobs they lost to the Great Recession. Men are still 2.1 million jobs short. And the gender gap is expected to persist until the job market is much healthier. To understand why, consider the kinds of jobs that are, and aren’t, being added. Lower-wage industries, like retail, education, restaurants and hotels, have been hiring the fastest. Women are predominant in those areas. Men, by contrast, dominate sectors like construction and manufacturing, which have yet to recover millions of jobs lost in the recession. “It’s a segregated labor market, and men and women do work in different industries, and even in different areas within industries,” says Heidi Hartmann, an economist and president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. Economists have long known

While that category includes some good-paying jobs such as nurses and physical therapists, many are lower-paying positions such as home health care aides. Women also make up more than half of the workforce in hotels and restaurants, which has produced the third-largest job gain of any industry. Heidi Shierholz, an economist with the Economic Policy Institute, says the lackluster economy has limited the growth of good jobs — the kind traditionally held by men. Lowpaying jobs, more typically held by women, have been growing instead. The trend likely won’t reverse, she says, until economic growth picks up and unemployment falls significantly below August’s 7.2 percent. That might be two years away, Shierholz says. “It’s not like women are fine now,” Shierholz says. “Women have been disproportionately in lower-quality jobs.”

Colorado flooding cuts off mountain towns P. Solomon Banda Associated Press

LYONS, Colo. (AP) — Heavy rains sent walls of water crashing down mountainsides Thursday in Colorado, cutting off remote towns, forcing the state’s largest university to close and leaving at least three people dead across a rugged landscape that included areas blackened by recent wildfires. After a rainy week, up to 8 more inches fell in an area spanning from the Wyoming border south to the foothills west of Denver. Flooding extended all along the Front Range mountains and into some

cities, including Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, Aurora and Boulder. Numerous roads and highways were washed out or made impassable by floods. Floodwaters poured into homes, and at least a few buildings collapsed in the torrent. B oulder County appeared to be hardest hit. Sheriff Joe Pelle said the town of Lyons was completely cut off because of flooded roads, and residents were huddling together on higher ground. Although everyone was believed to be safe, the deluge was expected to continue into Friday.

“It is not an ordinary disaster,” Pelle said. “All the preparation in the world … it can’t put people up those canyons while these walls of water are coming down.” Jason Stillman, 37, said he and his fiance were forced to evacuate their home in Lyons at about 3 a.m. after a nearby river began to overflow into the street. Stillman, who is staying at a friend’s house on higher ground, went back to his neighborhood in the afternoon and saw how fast-moving water had overturned cars and swept away homes at a nearby trailer park.

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — An American who became one of Somalia’s most visible Islamic rebels and was on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist list with a $5 million bounty on his head was killed Thursday by rivals in the al-Qaida-linked extremist group al-Shabab, militants said. The killing of Omar Hammami, an Alabama native known for his rap-filled propaganda videos, may discourage other would-be jihadis from the U.S. and elsewhere from traveling to Somalia, terrorism experts said. Hammami, whose nom de guerre was Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki, or “the American,” was killed in an ambush in southern Somalia following months on the run after falling out with al-Shabab’s top leader, the militants said. Reports of Hammami’s death have cropped up every few months in Somalia, only for him to resurface. But J.M. Berger, a U.S. terrorism expert who closely follows the inner workings of al-Shabab, said he thinks the current reports are accurate. The rebels did not immediately present proof of Hammami’s death. Hammami was highly critical of alShabab’s leadership over the past year and freely shared his views in Internet videos and on Twitter, making him a marked man. Somalia has long been an attractive destination for foreign fighters, and al-Shabab counts several hundred foreign fighters among its ranks, including about two dozen Somali-Americans from Minneapolis recruited over the past several years. Hammami’s death will hurt the group’s recruitment efforts, said Abdirizak Bihi, an advocate for the Somali community in Minnesota and the uncle of a young man killed in Somalia in 2008.

Voyager has left the solar system Alicia Chang AP Science Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NASA’s Voyager 1 probe has left the solar system, boldly going where no machine has gone before. Thirty-six years after it rocketed away from Earth, the plutonium-powered spacecraft has escaped the sun’s influence and is now cruising 11 1/2 billion miles away in interstellar space, or the

vast, cold emptiness between the stars, NASA said Thursday. And just in case it encounters intelligent life out there, it is carrying a gold-plated, 1970s-era phonograph record with multicultural greetings from Earth, photos and songs, including Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” along with Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Louis Armstrong. Never before has a man-made object left the solar system as it is commonly understood.

“We made it,” said an ecstatic Ed Stone, the mission’s chief scientist, who waited decades for this moment. NASA celebrated by playing the “Star Trek” theme at a news conference in Washington. Voyager 1 actually made its exit more than a year ago, scientists said. But since there’s no “Welcome to Interstellar Space” sign out there, NASA waited for more evidence before concluding that the probe had in fact broken

out of the hot plasma bubble surrounding the planets. Voyager 1, which is about the size of a small car, is drifting in a part of the universe littered with the remnants of ancient star explosions. It will study exotic particles and other phenomena and will radio the data back to Earth, where the Voyager team awaits the starship’s discoveries. It takes about 17 hours for its signal to reach Earth.

Assad: Syria to offer data on chemical weapons Bassem Mroue Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian President Bashar Assad publicly agreed Thursday to a Russian plan to secure and destroy his chemical weapons, but said the proposal would work only if the U.S. halts threats of military action. Assad also said his government will start submitting data on its chemical weapons stockpile a month after signing the convention banning such weapons. Syria’s U.N. ambassador Bashar Ja’afari told reporters Thursday that he presented Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with “the

instrument of accession” to the Chemical Weapons Convention making his country a full member of the treaty banning the use of chemical weapons. U.N. associate spokesman Farhan Haq said that while secretary-general welcomes the development, Syria will only become a member 30 days after its instrument of accession is deposited and that the documentation is still being studied. American officials, meeting with their Russian counterparts in Geneva, insisted on a speedier Syrian accounting of their stockpiles. Assad’s remarks to Russia’s state Rossiya 24 news channel were his first since the

Russian plan was announced Monday as a way to avert a potential U.S. military strike in response to the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack that killed hundreds near Damascus. He said that Syria is relinquishing control over its chemical weapons because of Russia. “We agreed to put Syria’s chemical weapons under international supervision in response to Russia’s request and not because of American threats,” Assad said. “In my view, the agreement will begin to take effect a month after its signing, and Syria will begin turning over to international organizations data about its chemical weapons,” Assad added. He said this is “standard procedure” and that Syria will stick to it.

We were served punch and a snack. We had a short but enjoyable visit. Jacob, Emma and family also attended church and visited with Jonas and Mandy. Mandy, Jacob’s mother and Joe’s mother are all sisters. We headed for Berne, Ind., around 3:30 p.m. and met up with the rest of our family coming from Michigan. On Monday, we enjoyed the day at brother Amos’s house for our annual family gathering. If I counted correctly, our family member count has reached 90, although three of the nieces and nephews weren’t there. There was lots of food there so I won’t try to mention it all. Amos had a 180pound hog roasted and there was lots of meat left. It was delicious! Volleyball, cornhole, and horseshoe games were played. I had never played the cornhole game, but sister Verena and I teamed up against sisters Liz and Susan. Needless to say, I was on the losing team, but we had fun trying.

Everyone brought snacks that were enjoyed later in the afternoon. We started for home around 4:35 and arrived home around 6:40 p.m. Everyone was ready for bedtime early. School bags and clothes were all ready for the next morning. This is an interesting recipe I thought I’d share with you all!

Cruizer’s car show benefits hospice RUSSIA — On Aug. 24, Cruizer’s Bar and Grill in Russia hosted its Third Annual Car Show to benefit Hospice of Miami County. Susan Hemm , marketing and development coordinator for hospice, was the recipient of a $3,263 donation. Hospice, being volunteer-driven, uses benefits such as this to help maintain the structure that it takes to keep the quality of assistance for those who require it. With the help and support of its sponsors — Frenchtown

Trailer, Midwest Radiator Service, Bensman’s Garage, Goubeaux Excavating, Eldora Speedway and TWT Shirts — this event was a huge success, more than doubling the money that was donated last year, organizers said. Music was provided by Tom Landsiedel, who also announced the door-prize/ silent-auction winners and the car-show trophy recipients. The trophies were provided by Lasting Impressions in Piqua, and were awarded to the top four places and to the people’s choice. First place

went to Dave Fullenkamp for his 1966 Ford Galaxie; second place went to Kenny Davis for his 1955 Chevy pickup truck; third place went to Brad Francis for his 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle; fourth place went to Tom Demmitt for his 1971 Chevrolet Nova; and the people’s choice award went to Ed Silvers for his 1967 Pontiac Tempest. Lori Tomlian, one of the owners of Cruizer’s, put a lot of time and effort into organizing the event and by obtaining many donations from numer-

ous businesses in the surrounding areas. Her efforts were supported by the other owners and the staff at Cruizer’s. It takes a team effort for an event such as this to take place and to be successful, organizer said. Lori and Chris Tomlian and Steve and Barb Young, owners of Cruizer’s, thanked those who participated by taking their vehicles to the show and to those who donated their time and/or money to hospice. They also thanked Chelsea Morris, Jennifer Clark and Nick Gorske for traveling from Michigan

to help with this event. They said they hoped the Michigan residents can make it back to help again next year. Also recognized for her help was Kim Goings, the manager of Cruizer’s, and to its staff, who worked keep things running smoothly throughout the day. “We at Cruizer’s are looking forward to continuing the tradition in the years to come by hosting more car shows to benefit hospice. Thanks again to everyone for your continued support,” organizers said.

WALLACE: My girlfriend and I had been living together for a while, and we have a young daughter. Our relationship was great until my brother was killed in an accident in Colombia. I changed after his death. I walked around with a chip on my shoulder, acted like I didn’t care what happened to me and treated everyone, including my girlfriend, like dirt.

hate her for leaving you. As long as that anger and hatred are tainting your love, she is unlikely to return to you and, indeed, would be foolish to do so. If she wrote to me asking for advice, I’m sure I’d tell her not to. Why should she trust you? Your only course of action is to apologize to her from the bottom of your heart and then move on with your life. You should apologize not to get her back but because it’s the right thing to do.

The Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office offers safety tips for parents and their children. Parents can teach their children the following safety tips, which will inform the youngsters of danger signs to watch for and avoid in walking back and forth to school: • Always walk with a friend. Two heads are better than one, especially if there’s an emergency. • A stranger is anyone you or your parents don’t know well. • You or your friend must never take candy, money, medicine or anything else from a stranger. • If a stranger in a car asks you questions, don’t get near the car (you could get pulled in) — and never get in the car. • Strangers can be very tricky. They can ask you to walk with them to “show them something; they can offer to pay for

you video game, or ask you to help them find a lost dog or cat. Don’t be fooled! • Don’t tell anyone your name or address when you’re walking, and don’t think that because someone knows your name that they know you. They may just be looking at your name pretend on your lunch box, school bag or T-shirt. • If you think you’re in any danger, yell and run to the nearest store or “safe house” or back to school. • Always tell your parents or teacher if a stranger has approached you. By taking the time to carefully prepare your child on how to handle these situations, you can ensure your child’s safety whether they are walking to or from school, playing in a playground or riding their bikes.

Council deals with Safe Routes to School, income tax MINSTER — Minster Village Council members at their recent meeting discussed the Safe Routes to School plan and discussed an income tax ordinance, and addressed a request from Dannon. Council members discussed the Safe Routes to School plan that they are developing with Minster Local Schools. The program will include upgrades to the pedestrian signals at the intersection of Ohio 66 and Seventh Street and school zone flasher assemblies on Ohio 66. Because the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will only enter an agreement with a municipality, the village becomes the contracting agent for the funds. Council members Steve Kitzmiller and Nicole Clune motioned for the first reading of an ordinance that will authorize Village Administrator Don Harrod to enter an agreement with ODOT so that the village can receive funding for the Safe Routes to School plan. The

motion was approved. ODOT will award the village $102,000 for the Safe Routes to School project in 2016, which is 100 percent reimburseable. Council addressed an income tax ordinance during their meeting. It was noted that the new wastewater treatment plant cost is approximately $9 million. It was funded by the sale of Recovery Zone Economic Development bonds, wastewater treatment plant fund money, and a $2.7 million advance from the capital improvement fund. John Stechschulte, the village’s clerk and fiscal officer, told council members that the original plan was to pay off the advance for the plant over an extended period of time with the collection of user fees from the wastewater fund. The state auditor has recommended that the advance be repaid in three years. In order to reimburse the advance in a shorter period of time, the village will have to use funds from the collection of

income tax. Stechschulte stated the income tax ordinance will allocate the first $5,000 to the pool, 40 percent to the general fund, and 60 percent to the wastewater treatment plant renovation fund, up to $2.7 million. The money will then be transferred back to the capital improvement fund as a payment of debt. After the payment of the $2.7 million transfer, the income tax ordinance will revert back to current language. Council approved amending the income tax ordinance. Council heard that Dannon has requested that the village add a new service to Dannon’s raw milk receiving facility. In order to install a new service, a new 2500 KVA transformer would have to be purchased. The village has received quotes for the purchase of the transformer from Solomon Corp. for $47,875. As with other projects involving transformers of KVA 2500 and larger, the village aid-to-construction policy would apply. Due to the cost,

the village needs to authorize the purchase and create a purchase order. Council approved the request. Council discussed the minor street resurfacing project. Four bids were received for the 2013 project. Buehler Asphalt Paving of St. Marys had the lowest bid at $99,734.29. The engineering estimate was $140,111.50. Streets that will be resurfaced include East Seventh Street (Garfield to Paris), Ohio Street (Sixth to Fourth streets), Lincoln Street (Fourth to Lincoln Drive) and Lincoln Drive (Fourth to Lincoln). Council approved a purchase order to Buehler Asphalt. In other business, council: • Discussed the pool parking lot. Gavit Paving has repaved the parking lot and patched several roads and alleys in the village at a cost of $33,353.56. Because the cost was more than $25,000, council had to approve a purchase order. • Reviewed the June 2013 monthly income tax report of

Hospital board learns about Medical Staff Development Plan The Wilson Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees at its recent meeting got an update on the hospital’s Medical Staff Development Plan. David Andrick, director of physician recruitment and relations, started the meeting off with a presentation on the plan, noting medical staff planning is intended to position the hospital for proactive management of its medical staff asset. Medical staff development is an ongoing cycle, and Andrick noted the importance of Wilson taking a proactive approach in order to manage future physician needs. In reviewing the mission and strategy for physician recruitment, he said the importance of recruit-

ing physicians based on a “definable community need.” Medical staff planning is critical to the success of the hospital, defines the direction of the Physician Recruitment Department, and identifies goals consistent with the hospital’s strategic plan. Thomas Boecker, president and CEO, provided an update on recent hospital activity. Boecker said Dr. Andre Worrell, pediatrician, will be providing temporary coverage from Sept. 3 through Nov. 29 in the Wilson Care Pediatric office (formerly Dr. Thakker’s office). Dr. Sarah Marshall will join the practice on a permanent basis in early December.

Boecker said the hospital recently hosted the Shelby County Chapter of the Public Employee Retirement System where he provided an update on Wilson Memorial and health care reform. A luncheon was held Aug. 19 with Jacob Stephens, this year’s recipient of the Physician Memorial Scholarship. Boecker stated Stephens is a graduate of Fort Loramie High School and is entering into his senior year at Xavier University in Cincinnati where he is pursuing a degree in natural science. Stephens has been accepted to the University of Cincinnati Medical School. Boecker noted the need to make a concerted effort to identify and connect with local

medical students. Boecker shared with trustees that he recently met with Cliff Lehman, field service representative with the Ohio Hospital Association. The purpose of the visit was to provide an update on various state and national health care issues. Following Boecker’s report, Stan Crosley, vice chairman, reported on the Aug. 15 meeting of the Quality Improvement Council. Crosley reviewed the Quality Score Card for the second quarter in comparison to the Ohio and U.S. averages and Wilson’s prior three quarters. Wilson measured above the Ohio and U.S. averages for all measures.

$310,613.64 from the city of St. Marys Income Tax Department. The village contracts with St. Marys for income tax collection. • Discussed the Ohio Department of Natural Resources ash tree removal grant program for emerald ash borer disease. The grant is a 50/50 program. • Heard there has been a transfer of ownership of Bud’s Pizza. The Ohio Department of Liquor Control reported a transfer of ownership of Rocket Bergman Inc., doing business as Bud’s Pizza. Randall Bergman’s 51 percent will be transferred to his wife, Donna Bergman. She will now own 100 percent of the shares. The Ohio Department of Liquor Control asked the village if it wanted to hold a hearing regarding re-issuing the permit based on the transfer of shares. There have been no public complaints concerning Bud’s Pizza and council members did not want to hold a hearing.

RPC learns grants approved The Shelby County Regional Planning Commission Executive Committee learned at its recent meeting that the agency has received grant funds. Executive Director Dianna Reisinger reported she received notice that the RPC’s grant applications were successful.

‘Flying Poet’ has local roots Ginny Thompson ANNA — Born and raised in Anna, the son of Anita and Harold Boyer and grandson of Clyde and Sylvia Boyer, Steven Boyer has deep roots here. As a result of serving in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, and later as a commercial pilot, he has literally seen the world, but it doesn’t take a long conversation to realize his heart and soul are still connected to Shelby County. He credits Dennis Wilt, “a good friend from way back,” with keeping him up to date with what’s happening here at home. Anna Rockets, Ohio State Buckeyes, Cincinnati Reds and local golf all retain Boyer’s interest and loyalty. Boyer was introduced to flying by his father, who owned a plane for a while, and by a sixth-grade teacher, Howard “Cobb” Pfadt, who also flew. When mentioning Pfadt, Boyer remembers “lots of good teachers” at Anna. He specifically cites Bob Anderson: “Coach had a big influence on me.” Also, Ruberta Blanke, his fourth-grade teacher, who is remembered for faithfully sending him mail

while he was in Vietnam and for frequently visiting his mother to help ease her concern. After military service as a “load master” in the Air Force, Boyer returned to Anna and began taking flying lessons at Neil Armstrong Airport near New Knoxville while working at a factory in Sidney. Ultimately he became a flight instructor, then a charter pilot. For a period of three years he was a “pilot salesman” for M&M Precision. This was followed by stints at Muncie (Ind.) Aviation and U.S. Airway Express. In 1989 he joined his current employer, NetJets Aviation Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway/Warren Buffett company with operations based in Columbus. During his years with NetJets, Boyer had the

opportunity to meet many well-known and famous people. Among them were Bob Hope, Billy Graham, Tiger Woods and two former vice presidents. While Boyer is also an avid golfer, and may have had some interesting conversations with Woods, NetJets guards the privacy of its clients and does not allow details to be released. While this could easily be the end of the story of a full and interesting career, Boyer also enjoys writing poetry, which he’s been doing for more than 30 years. In fact, in some circles he is known as the “Flying Poet.” Currently he’s working on compiling some of his poems into a collection with the hope of someday publishing a book. So far, planned chapter topics include “Golf, Places, People, Events, and Spiritual.” Another category could easily be “Patriotism” as Boyer expresses great appreciation for all his country offers. One of his poems, “Freedom Worth the Fight,” has led to several speaking engagements as well as a letter of appreciation from President George W. Bush. (This poem was published in

Council OKs use of park for run/walk event QUINCY — Tricia Marmon was present at the recent Quincy Village Council meeting to request use of the Finfrock Park for a benefit run Oct. 26. This year, the event will be held for the Central Bible Ministry. This will a 5K run or walk with an entry fee and possible outside activities being held during the event. Now that the date was approved by council, times and details will be provided. The fiscal officer reported the village will receive $19,725 in Local Government Funds for 2014. This amount is reportedly within a few dollars of being the same amount as 2013 but several thousand less than in 2012 and years in the past. A vote was taken and accounts were approved for shut-off that are two months or more past due. It was reported that a grant has been received for $1,400 to upgrade the handicap parking area of the Quincy Community Building used by the Miami Township and village of Quincy voters on Election Day. The Miami Township Trustees will contribute $700 toward the project and the village will contribute $700 mak-

ing the total cost of the project $2,800. This funding will allow the widening of the handicap parking area and placing asphalt in this area to make wheelchair use easier. A five-year agreement was signed to allow use of the Community Building as a polling place for Miami Township and village voters. Council passed a resolution to accept the amounts and rates as determined by the Budget Commission. Inside 10-mill limitations were for general fund at $12,000 and outside 10-mill limitations were for the fire department at $11,000. Council then discussed several issues regarding a issue with vehicle use on Foster Street, Jefferson Street and a large agricultural field relating to this area. Steve Fansler was present for the meeting and will do further investigation into the issues. More information will be prepared for discussion at a future meeting. Legal questions were discussed with the matter tabled at this time. A citizen was present for the meeting to discuss the dumping of animals in the village and asked what could be done to stop this. She

stated there is a cost to take the animals to the Humane Society, the animals do not belong to anyone, and the cost to take the animal should not be at the expense of someone not owning the animal. The situation involved the abandonment of a litter of kittens. The village does not have laws regarding cats. All areas can govern dog issues but cats are not governed at this time. Ownership of the cats has to be established and proven. It was reported that three buildings are on the list of properties to be torn down in Logan County. Mayor Dan Robinson said the project should be completed by the end of 2013. Council then discussed a merry-goround at Railroad Park. It has been determined that the piece still needs to be welded. This project will not be completed during this season and the merry-go-round will not be returned until the spring of 2014. Trash is still reportedly a problem, with several people monitoring the situation. The village administrator will be investigating the placement of a sign on a curve in the corporation limits where people should

be traveling 25 mph. A home on this curve has again been hit and damaged. A sign warning of the curve will be reviewed. Robinson signed a proclamation to declare the dates of Sept.1723 as Constitution Week in the village. The proclamation was approved at the request of the Urbana Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. A list was presented regarding items that will be auctioned off by the village. Electronic items will be added to the list upon completion of the inventory. Bud Jackson has agreed to conduct the auction by way of donation. This auction will be held to dispose of unused and unwanted items owned by the village. A bid was presented in the amount of $2,665.53 by A.C.T. Fast to change out a fuel-oil furnace furnace at the Quincy Community Building to a propane furnace to save on fuel costs. Village Administrator Kirk Helmandollar reported that Well No. 1 has been maintained and cleaned. The next council meeting will be Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers.

Center helps cancer survivors with treatment

ST. MARYS — You would think that after surviving cancer, having a tooth extracted would be as easy as a walk in the park. Yet people who undergo radiation therapy of the head or neck are more likely to be at risk for osteoradionecrosis (ORN), which is delayed bone damage caused by radiation therapy. “The extraction of teeth in a previously radiated jaw accounts for nearly nine out of 10 cases of trauma induced mandibular radionecrosis,” explains Scott Covington, MD, FACS, CHWS, executive vice president, Medical Affairs for Healogics, the network of Wound Care Centers around the nation that treat the condition. “It seems counterintuitive when cancer survivors gauge success in the passage of time, yet there is greater risk of ORN years after radiation since the degenerative process is progressing beneath the surface without any outward sign.” The Grand Lake Wound Care Center, a member of the Healogics network, uses leading edge hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) to treat ORN. Unlike the tedium of sitting in a dentist’s chair, patients watch movies during treatment while relaxing on a bed incased in a large see-through plastic shell as they are surrounded by 100 percent oxygen at higher-than-normal atmospheric pressure. The therapy enables oxygen molecules to pass through the plasma to the tissue more easily and speed healing. “Microorganisms begin to impact the surface of irradiated bone in the mouth placing patients at risk,” Covington said. “This makes ORN a matter of wound healing rather than infection and these problematic wounds do not require the same type of topical management.” Patients with ORN can experience pain, difficulty opening the mouth, exposed and or damaged bone, drainage and swelling. The local experts at The Grand Lake Wound Care Center recommend the following for preventing, identifying and treating ORN: • Patients considering radiation therapy of the head or neck should consider a pre-radiation dental consultation with a specialist to optimize oral health. • ORN risk factors include inadequate healing time between undergoing oral surgery and starting radiation therapy, extractions within irradiated bone, alcohol and tobacco use and nutritional factors. • Quit smoking. The risk of ORN increases in patients who smoke at the time of radiation treatment.

Definitive treatment is with surgery, but I recommend an EMG test to be sure of the diagnosis before contemplating surgery. The success rate of surgery is better than 95 percent. DEAR DR. ROACH: Would you please tell me if there is any way to get rid of a porokeratosis? I have lived with one on the bottom of my foot for five years now, and it can be very painful when walking. Doctors aren’t very forthcoming; all they want to do is dig at it every so often and recommend shoes that don’t do any good. — C.P. ANSWER: A porokeratosis is a benign skin condition that can occur anywhere on the body, but more commonly on an extremity. It appears to be an area of skin atrophy, usually paler than nearby skin, surrounded by a thickened ridge-like border of skin. The diagnosis is made via a skin biopsy. There are many ways to treat it, so I am concerned that you have been suffering for five years without getting it successfully treated. In

addition to surgery, freezing the area with liquid nitrogen is sometimes successful. Medicines like imiquimod (Aldara) and 5-fluorouracil also are effective in many cases. It sounds to me like you should search out a local expert in dermatology in your area. About 10 percent of the time, these can become cancerous, so regardless of any treatment, they need to be carefully followed.

Their impulse is to “make it better,” not realizing that sometimes a gesture is more eloquent than words can be.

100 years Sept. 13, 1913 The city and the gas company are insisting that the Western Ohio bind their rails through the city. The binding is done by copper wire connecting the rails. The demand is made as a means of protecting the water and gas pipes that are laid under the streets over which the street car line traverses the city. At Springfield it was found that the electric current had at places so perforated the gas and water lines as to make them almost useless. ––––– At the closing session of the Sandusky conference of the United Brethren church at Findlay yesterday, Rev.

Season concludes for Hoying Dave Ross Fort Loramie’s Jared Hoying has completed his fourth season of minor league baseball for the Texas Rangers. The 24 year old outfielder essentially split the year between AA Frisco and AAA Round Rock (both in Texas) with a middle and ending segment on the disabled list. At Frisco he played in 40 games with a .242 batting average, five homers, 24 RBI, and three stolen bases. Following

recovery from a hamstring injury he was promoted to the top farm club in Round Rock and saw action in another 53 outings, hitting .266 with eight homers, 24 RBI, and four steals. He was again placed on the disabled list on August 22 and remained there for the final eleven days of the season. He had sprained a wrist on a check-swing and is now healed.

Bucks want to play keep-away COLUMBUS (AP) — Urban Meyer, contrary to popular belief, has nothing against running the ball. Those who thought he might usher in a state-of-the-art, 40-throws-a-game passing attack along with his spread offense at Ohio State were badly mistaken. And this week, more than most, he really wants his running game to control the ball and keep it away from pass-happy California. “That’s basically everything,” he said of the importance of the run game in Saturday’s road contest against the Bears. “To be able to move the chains and get first downs, you’re going to have to block them and run the ball a little bit.” Meyer wants the Buckeyes to play fast, to pass a lot and to score a lot of points. But the underpinning of all of that is to jam the ball down the other team’s throat, to enforce your will on the opponent up front.

So even though both Ohio State and California both run what is loosely called a spread attack, there are very few similarities. “It’s a much different philosophy,” Meyer said. “We want to be a 250-yards-a-game team, we want to be a top-10 rushing team. We’ve kind of been that way over the years. It’s just a much different philosophy. “They pass to (set up the) pass.” Yet even coach Sonny Dykes knows that his team has to do more than just chuck the ball repeatedly. The Bears will also have to move the ball on the ground. “We have to be able to run the ball,” said Dykes, whose team has run the ball about 35 percent of the time in its first two games. “This is not a team (Ohio State) you can drop back 70 times and throw the football against. That won’t be in our favor if that’s what happens on Saturday. “We have to establish our run game.”

Please visit us at

The Buckeyes want to reel off plays quickly to keep defenses in motion, but will never be in the same ballpark with teams like Cal, which has had freshman quarterback Jared Goff throw 125 passes in his first two games. Even though Meyer is committed to the run, that doesn’t mean the Buckeyes are exactly copying Woody Hayes’ betweenthe-tackles attack. Mixing dashes by quarterbacks Braxton Miller and Kenny Guiton with productive carries by tailback Jordan Hall, they stand 27th in the nation in rushing at 262 yards a game. It remains to be seen if Miller — who sustained a sprained ligament in his left knee last week against San Diego State — will play very much or at all against Cal. Meyer said on Thursday that no decision will be reached on Miller’s availability until game time.

Dalton’s debut was impressive CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton fit a sideline throw between two defenders, dropping it just over the one in front for a completion. He made a pump-fake and hit A.J. Green for a 45-yard touchdown. Virtually everything he did was right on the mark in the Cincinnati Bengals’ season opener, an impressive showing that got overlooked in how it ended. The third-year quarterback completed a career-best 78.7 percent of his passes during a 24-21 loss at Chicago on Sunday, one that came down to turnovers and defensive gaffes. Dalton was 26 of 33 for 282 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, one of which went off Green’s hands. It was as flawless a game as Dalton has played in the NFL. “He threw the ball well,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. “He had a great game. This was one of his better games here. There’s still room for improvement.” If Dalton plays near the level he did in the opener, the Bengals (0-1) will have a good chance of reaching the playoffs for the third season in a row, something that’s never happened in franchise history. Dalton completed passes to seven different players, including rookie tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard, blend-

ing the newcomers into a more diversified approach. “I think we’ve just gotten better as a team, I think that’s a big part of it,” Dalton said. “I feel like I’ve improved, I feel like the offense has improved and (we’re) finding ways to keep getting completions and moving the chains. I think that’s a big part of it. “Hopefully we can keep that up and keep completing a lot of balls and keep the percentage up.” He’ll get a good gauge on that Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1) throw their funky blitzes his way. He’s 1-3 career against Pittsburgh, which has contained him most of the time. In those four games, Dalton has completed only 52 percent of his throws for 688 yards and four touchdowns with five interceptions and nine sacks. He notched his first win against them last December, a 13-10 victory at Heinz Field that put the Bengals back in the playoffs and knocked out the Steelers. It was a breakthrough win in many ways, and the Bengals want to show it wasn’t a fluke. “For us to go into Pittsburgh last year and win when there was a lot on the line, that was big for us as a team,” Dalton said. “Obviously it’s a new year, but we know the kind of games we play when we play

the Steelers. They’re always tough games. They’re always close games. “And so, we know the importance of playing these guys and how good they are.” The Bengals look to be a lot better themselves with Eifert and Bernard. Eifert had five catches for 47 yards in Cincinnati’s two-tight end alignment with Pro Bowler Jermaine Gresham. Bernard caught one pass for eight yards and forced the Bears’ defense to account for him out of the backfield. The Bengals had touchdown drives that covered 97, 91 and 80 yards against one of the NFL’s top defenses. “I felt good about a lot of things,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “I’m excited about our guys.” Two turnovers undercut what they did. Green had a pass go off his hands for an interception inside the Bears’ 20-yard line. And Mohamed Sanu fumbled inside the 20 after a catch, giving Chicago a chance to pull off its go-ahead touchdown drive. Except for those two mistakes by the receivers, the offense was impressive. “I just feel like there was a lot of positive we got out of that loss,” said Green, who had nine catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns. “We want

But Botkins goalkeep Joseph Shuga recorded 17 saves. He stopped a Lehman penalty kick with 30 minutes left in the game. “I was happy with the way we possessed the ball tonight,” Lehman coach Tom Thornton said. “We controlled the midfield and got off a lot of shots.

Mike Napoli, Boston The Boston first baseman, like many of his teammates, feasted on Detroit and New York pitching last week. Over a four-game stretch, Napoli had nine hits, four home runs, nine RBIs and scored seven runs.

Esmil Rogers, Toronto The Blue Jays had lost six of Rogers’ last seven starts prior to last week. The righthander reversed that course last week with a pair of wins in which he didn’t allow a run over 14 innings. He gave up four hits and walked only two.

Matt Carpenter, St. Louis The St. Louis leadoff hitter sparked a resurgence in the Redbirds’ offense last week. He had four multi-hit games and led the majors with 10 runs, six of them coming in a critical three-game sweep of the Pirates.

Homer Bailey, Cincinnati Bailey is proving that he could be the Reds’ No. 1 starter come playoff time. He was masterful in two starts last week over playoff contenders St. Louis and Los Angeles. He held the Cardinals and Dodgers to eight hits and a walk over 14 innings.

Magic number down to 12. Lost three tough one-run games at Philadelphia. Lost three tough one-run games at Cincinnati. Swept Pirates, now friendly schedule remains. Winners of 11 of their last 14, A’s visit Texas this weekend. Gave up 20 runs on Wed.; scored 16 on Friday. Six of last nine games are vs. Pittsburgh... ...which will likely determine the fate of both teams. Roared through August, now sleeping in September. Tough sked includes Boston (3), Baltimore (4) and 3 at Yankees. All remaining games vs. AL East — as it should be. Two games out in wild card with easiest sked among contenders. Bad weekend for Mo and Co. Six of next nine games vs. Cleveland. Five of Ryan Zimmerman’s hits last week left the yard. Seven of next 10 vs. the Dodgers — so there is a chance. Won 12 of last 16 and will have a say in AL West race. Could have three .300 hitters and four 20-homer guys. .241 team batting average is actually M’s highest since 2009. Given up just 37 runs over last 13 games (10-3). Outpitched Braves over the weekend as lost season continues. Battle to avoid the cellar ongoing with San Fran. Yusmeiro Petit tossed one-hit shutout over D-backs. Fans getting long look at next wave of Mets. Yovani Gallardo has ramped it up recently. Lots of spoiling opportunities for Twins. Spent most of August improving their 2014 draft position. Just 7-6 when allowing one or two runs since the break. Ace Chris Sale (10-12) trying to reach .500 this season. Amazingly, not last in attendance, 27th in fact.

Oakland at Texas Oakland took two of three from the Rangers last week, and the A’s are now 1.5 games in front of Texas. The two will tangle for the final time in the regular season this weekend. The same three starting pitchers are scheduled in this series that pitched in the three-game set last week. Dan Straily and Derek Holland will pitch the opener. Straily earned the win and Holland was handed the loss in the first game last week. Bartolo Colon and Yu Darvish will meet in Game 2. Both were tagged with losses last week — Colon in the second game and Darvish in the finale. Darvish was not sharp, allowing five runs in as many innings, while three unearned runs were the undoing of Colon. The Rangers have lost all three games started by Darvish against Oakland this season. Jarrod Parker and Martin Perez will toe the rubber on Sunday. Both were winners in the series last week.

N.Y. Yankees at Boston Once again, the Yankees and Red Sox will meet with postseason hopes on the line. Last weekend, the Red Sox took three of four, including one win in which Mariano Rivera suffered a blown save. The future Hall of Fame closer also blew a save in the series finale, but his teammates picked him up and came back to win. The Yankees ended last week just 2.5 games out of the final wild card berth, virtually neck-and-neck with the Orioles and Indians behind the Rays. Meanwhile, the Red Sox enjoy a comfortable 7.5-game lead over the Rays in the AL East.

Sept. 18, 1963 A sparse crowd of 1,752 watches the final baseball game in the historic Polo Grounds in New York. Home of the Giants from 1890-1957 as well as the Yankees and Mets for short periods, the Polo Grounds’ most famous moment was Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard Round the World” to give the Giants the 1951 pennant over the Dodgers.

9. San Francisco Giants Buster Posey owns more World Series rings than Willie Mays and Barry Bonds combined. 10. Philadelphia Phillies One of only eight teams with doubledigit division titles, the Phillies enjoyed little success until 1975, with five of their 11 titles coming in the last five seasons. 11. Detroit Tigers The Tigers have won eight of their 13 postseason series during this era. 12. Minnesota Twins The Twins entered this season just nine games under .500, but slipped further away this summer. 13. Pittsburgh Pirates Finally, the 20-year disaster has ended. Next up, win a postseason series for the first time since the 1979 World Series. 14. New York Mets Only seven teams have a lower winning percentage. But only seven teams have won more postseason series. 15. Los Angeles Angels With one lone World Series appearance, the Angels rank behind 20 other teams.

16. Chicago White Sox The White Sox own a .507 winning percentage and 10 90-win seasons, but only one World Series appearance. 17. Toronto Blue Jays Attendance, as well as success, hasn’t rebounded in Toronto since the 1994 players strike. More than 4 million fans enjoyed back-to-back World Series wins in 1992-93. 18. Arizona Diamondbacks Arizona, having celebrated a World Series title after its fourth season, owns as many NL West titles as San Diego and Colorado combined. 19. Kansas City Royals From 1975-94, the Royals enjoyed 15 of their 18 winning seasons. 20. Cleveland Indians All seven division titles have come since 1995. Prior to that, the Tribe never won as many as 90. 21. Houston Astros The franchise introduced AstroTurf, indoor baseball and candy-striped uniforms. Not good. 22. Texas Rangers Only the Padres, Rays, Rockies, Marlins and Mariners have a worse winning percentage.

Batting average for Cincinnati’s Chris Heisey with an 0-and-2 count. For all players with as many as 30 plate appearances when their at-bat ended after an 0-and-2 count, Heisey is the only player without a hit. He’s 0-for-30.


Plate appearances with runners in scoring position and two outs for Pittsburgh’s Pedro Alvarez this season, the most in the majors. He is batting .227 with 28 RBIs in that situation.

23. San Diego Padres San Diego is the only franchise without a no-hitter. 24. Chicago Cubs The Cubs have won just one postseason series, but Wrigley Field is my No. 1 venue. 25. Milwaukee Brewers Moving from Seattle to Milwaukee and from the AL to the NL doesn’t do much for tradition. 26. Miami Marlins It’s been all or nothing for the Marlins, mostly nothing. 27. Seattle Mariners The franchise that produced Ken Griffey, Alex Rodriguez and Ichiro Suzuki has no World Series trips. 28. Tampa Bay Rays The Rays’ winning percentage is considerably worse than any other team, but since 1998 only the Yankees and Phillies are better. 29. Washington Nationals After one playoff appearance in Montreal, the Nationals brought postseason baseball back to D.C. in 2012. 30. Colorado Rockies The Rockies and Marlins are the only franchises without a division title.

Can you name the six franchises without a league MVP since 1960?

Consecutive games lost by the Yankees in which they scored eight or more runs. That is the first time in franchise history that New York has dropped three in a row while scoring at that clip.

Athlon Sports


Sept. 17, 1968 Future Hall of Famers Gaylord Perry of San Francisco and Bob Gibson of St. Louis lock up in a classic pitchers’ duel. Gibson allows just four hits, including a first-inning home run to Ron Hunt. Perry upstages Gibson by twirling a no-hitter. The next day, Ray Washburn of the Cardinals will no-hit the Giants.

3. Los Angeles Dodgers This season the Dodgers joined the Yankees as the only franchises with more then 4,500 wins during this era. 4. Atlanta Braves The Braves had an incredible streak from 1991 to 2005, winning their division every season played to completion. Half the major league franchises have won more World Series during this time. 5. Oakland A’s The four world championships tie the Dodgers for third. However, the Athletics’ .504 winning percentage ranks 10th. 6. Cincinnati Reds The Reds’ .527 winning percentage is fifth-best, and only four franchises have won more World Series. Curiously, the Reds are one of only four teams without a Cy Young winner. 7. Boston Red Sox The Sox haven’t won 100 (in this era) and 12 teams have more than their seven division titles. 8. Baltimore Orioles Only two franchises have more than the Orioles’ five 100-win seasons. The .518 winning percentage is eighth-best.

TRIVIA ANSWER: In the Expansion Era, the New York Mets, Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Indians, Miami Marlins, Tampa Bay Rays and Colorado Rockies have yet to have a player with an MVP.

As I learned about this time last year, ranking the 30 MLB franchises can be a dicey exercise. Rather than consider each club from its infancy (some going back more than 100 years), I decided that the Expansion Era (1961-present) makes for a sensible cutoff. Franchises are ranked based on their bodies of work during the entire era. Criteria? Winning is critically important, certainly, both in the postseason and consistently during the regular season. I weighed division and league titles heavily, and tradition, attendance and even franchise stability all played a role in this ranking. 1. New York Yankees Under pretty much any criteria used, the Yankees are on top. During the 52 years (through 2012), the Yankees have 21 division/league titles, and have won 90 or more games in more than half of the seasons. New York has won 31 postseason series, more than any other franchise has played. 2. St. Louis Cardinals The Redbirds have the second-most appearances in the World Series and are runners-up to the Yankees with five championships. The uniforms, the fan support and winning have been consistent for more than a half-century.

Sidney Daily News, Friday, September 13, 2013












For Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Many people are feeling bold and experimental today, which is why you might have a dispute with a partner or a close friend. Don't get your belly in a rash. Easy does it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Arguments with co-workers or anyone, especially related to health issues, might arise today. Meanwhile, hightech changes at home could be exciting. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Parents must be patient with children today, and romantic lovers must be patient with each other in order to avoid power struggles. Your daily routine definitely will be interrupted. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might see new, innovative ways to earn money today or to be self-employed. However, also keep an eye on your money, because you might lose it. Alternatively, you also might find money. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel impulsive today, which is why you will spontaneously change your routine. Be careful that this doesn't create an argument with relatives, siblings and neighbors who might not like sudden change. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Disputes about money and possessions might arise today. Basically, they are power struggles. In fact, something surprising is going on behind the scenes. Keep your eyes open. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Power struggles with family members might take place today, in part because you impulsively want to do something with a group of people. You can't please everyone all the time, can you? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might be doing a slow boil about something. You're seething but you can't speak up. Be careful, because you might do something impulsive with authority figures. (Don't do anything you will regret later.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Unexpected opportunities to travel or explore new ideas might fall in your lap. However, this could create a problem with others, or perhaps a friend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Avoid disputes with authority figures today because they will not resolve anything. Instead, keep your eyes open, because unexpected gifts and goodies might come your way! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Controversial subjects like politics and religion might trigger arguments today. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Enjoy being spontaneous with friends. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might see new ways to be self-employed or to use technology at work. (Clever you.) Meanwhile, avoid arguments about shared possessions and inheritances. YOU BORN TODAY You want your life to run in an organized, smooth manner, which is why you strive to be efficient and productive. (You hate mess!) You are opinionated and observant. You like to be involved in important projects. Privately, you enjoy your creature comforts -- good food, sex and luxurious sleep. This year, partnerships and close friendships will be your primary focus. Birthdate of: Melissa Leo, actress; Sam Neill, actor; Kate Millett, author/activist.

Kaye Wint, of New Bremen, (top photo) looks over the recreation of the historic lock in New Bremen Thursday. Wint was at the lock with friends from out-of-town who had not yet toured it. The Bicycle Museum of America employee Matt Staugler, of Chickasaw, (bottom photo) talks about a new addition to the museum, the 1950 Whizzer Sportsman which has a three horsepower motor and 20 inch tires. The model they purchased two weeks ago is unique for its chrome finish and wheel size. Staugler described the bike as an early version of a moped.
