DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama paid tribute Wednesday to former President John F. Kennedy’s legacy, joining former President Bill Clinton to lay a wreath at Kennedy’s grave and presenting a freedom medal that Kennedy conceived before his assassination 50 years ago this week. One on each side, Obama and Clinton held the hands of Ethel Kennedy, widow of Robert F. Kennedy, as they made their way up the stairs at Arlington National Cemetery. First lady Michelle Obama and

former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton joined the two presidents to place a wreath near the eternal flame that marks Kennedy’s gravesite. Obama and Clinton placed their hands over their hearts as a bugler played “Taps” near an American flag at halfmast. Obama made no public comments, but greeted Kennedy relatives gathered to honor his legacy ahead of the 50th anniversary of his assassination on Friday. The daylong tribute began earlier at the White House, where Obama bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on prominent Americans

including Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. Kennedy established the modern version of the medal, but was assassinated two weeks before he planned to honor the first group of recipients. “Today, we salute fierce competitors who became true champions,” Obama said, pausing to speak in personal terms about each of the recipients and their contributions to society. The leaders honored ran the gamut from sports and entertainment to science and public service. Mrs. Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and film direc-

plans $250,000 in improvements By Becky Brooks Managing Editor

Bellevue’s Mad River and NKP Railroad Museum Board of Directors is having nearly $250,000 in rail and track improvements made this fall. Museum President Chris Beamer said Wednesday that because of work which Norfolk Southern Railway is doing on its tracks in the community, museum officials were able to meet with contractors who also could make improvements to Mad River’s tracks. “It’s sinking and the tracks are bad,” Beamer said about the coach yard outside the fenced area of the museum. “Our contractor said it should

With two days left, there was commotion in the Warsaw talks Wednesday after the conference president — Poland’s environment minister — was fired in a government reshuffle and developing country negotiators said they walked out of a late-night meeting on compensation for climate impacts. “We do not see a clear commitment of developed parties to reach an agreement,” said Rene Orellana, head of Bolivia’s delegation.

effort to curb global warming, which has often been held back by mistrust between rich and poor countries. The question of who is to blame for global warming is central to developing countries who say they should receive financial support from rich nations to green their economies, adapt to shifts in the climate and

cover costs of unavoidable damage caused by warming temperatures. Also, they say the fact that rich nations, historically speaking, have released the biggest amounts of CO2 and other heat-trapping gases, means they need to take the lead in reducing current emissions. In Warsaw, Brazil even proposed developing a formula to calculate historical blame, to guide talks on a new global climate deal in 2015. “They must know how much they are actually responsible … for the essential problem of climate change,” Brazilian negotiator Raphael Azeredo said. Developed nations blocked that proposal, saying you must also look at current and future emissions when dividing the responsibility. China overtook the U.S. to become the world’s biggest carbon

Investigation: Ohioan, 19, accidentally shot himself FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — An investigation has concluded an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot killed a 19-year-old northern Ohio man whose family challenged a ruling that it was a suicide. State Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office had investigated the March 2012 death of Jacob Limberios and had called a grand jury to consider testimony. Authorities said Wednesday that the grand jury declined to bring charges against anyone in the case. The Sandusky County coroner had ruled the death a suicide but also said the teen might not have known the gun was loaded.His parents fought that ruling and hired their own forensic pathologist to do an autopsy. He concluded the death was a homicide after the teen’s body was exhumed last fall.

Great Lakes levels rise, but slump hasn’t ended JOHN FLESHER AP Environmental Writer

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Federal scientists say Great Lakes water levels are up sharply this year because of heavy rain and snow. But it’s too early to

declare an end to the slump that has affected most of the system since the late 1990s. The drop-off has been most pronounced in Lakes Huron and Michigan, which have the same level because they’re connected.

Keith Kompoltowicz of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer says in a briefing Wednesday those lakes are nearly a foot higher than last November. That’s a big improvement from early this year, when they hit their low-

est point since recordkeeping began in 1918. Still, experts forecast that Michigan and Huron will remain well below their long-term average into next spring, while Lakes Superior and Erie will be slightly below average.

Tracks From page A1 locomotives, six passenger cars, one freight car, one caboose and two cranes,” Beamer said. Four of the locomotives and little crane are now sitting on the Gardner Street siding. To move the rest of the cars, Norfolk Southern came in and pulled them across Kilbourne Street, Beamer said. The cars are sitting right there between York and Southwest Streets. “We had to do it,” he commented about moving all the assets. “We had to get everything out. There are some grading issues. “We wanted to get some better drainage in there so our new railroad ties don’t rot.” The quarter-million dollar project was a big project for the small local museum. “We do have to finance some of it,” Beamer pointed out. “Hopefully between some grant monies and some donations it won’t have to come out of our general fund.” While the opportunity

FitzGerald picks SW Ohio senator JULIE CARR SMYTH, AP Statehouse Correspondent

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Democratic gubernatorial contender Ed FitzGerald has picked a Cincinnati lawyer and state senator well known to President Barack Obama as his running mate as he seeks to unseat Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) in 2014. FitzGerald’s campaign manager Nick Bius confirmed the pick of Sen. Eric Kearney Wednesday. Kearney, who is black, lends racial and geographic diversity to the top of Democrats’ 2014 ticket. He is expected to help draw

to move on this project only popped up last summer, Beamer said it has long been discussed. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for five, six, eight years,” he added. “What prompted it now is there were contractors in town doing this work for the railroad.” From start to finish, replacing the subgrade, ties and rails should take about six months. Museum goers won’t notice a big change, according to Beamer. But with the new tracks, the railroad museum could attract new visiting trains

such as Locomotive 755 and guest steam engines. The condition of the old tracks has been so poor that rail cars and locomotives could not move along them. “It was so dilapidated. We were very cautious just moving our equipment off so something didn’t happen,” he said. “We have a railroad that is usable now,” Beamer added, noting the new bed and rails will open many opportunities to the museum. Beamer pointed out that most of the rails in the coach yard had not

seen maintenance since the 1950s and probably was put in during the 1920s. With work being completed around Christmas or mid-winter, Beamer said the museum would hold off and celebrate the improvements in the spring. “We want to get it done first, and of course, we are at the mercy of the contractors,” he added.

AROUND OLD BELLEVUE

Life in the mountains continues

Bill Oddo (Continued from last week) Many other parties from foreign countries visited the Mountain House. John and Martha became well acquainted with the guests. Twelve world travelers from Java, representing the world’s coffee export and import trade, came for a few days’ visit. They were accompanied by an interpreter. It was in the late fall and the nights were cold. They marveled at the scenery, but when dinner time came, they stayed close to the wood burning fireplace. They asked if they could have their coffee served in front of the fireplace where it was cozy. While they sipped their coffee, Martha slipped warm bricks wrapped in heavy paper into their beds to warm them. The next morning, they all agreed they had a wonderful night’s sleep, thanks to Martha.

After they had gone, Martha was clearing the breakfast table when she found under each plate a bright new 50 cent piece and a thank you note. She was happily surprised. Being considerate of the guests paid off in more ways than one. John wrote this surprising revelation to connect his wife Martha to the James B. Wood family of Bellevue. “In 1928, Martha’s foster mother, Mrs. James B. Wood, of Bellevue, Ohio, paid us a visit. Mrs. Wood was the daughter of Peter G. Sharp, an early pioneer family who had crossed the plains by wagon train in the early Gold Rush Days. “During the long, difficult trip, Mrs. Sharp died and was buried on the plains. Mr. Sharp, left with two small children, settled at French Camp where he established a large grain ranch. Later, he made a trip back to Ohio, married Emaline Wood of Bellevue, Ohio, and brought her to California. They had two daughters, Emma and Sophy. About this time, Martha’s

mother died in Stockton and Martha’s father was left with seven small children to look after. The Sharps took Martha to raise and be company for Mrs. Sharp. Soon after Peter Sharp died and the family was forced to sell the ranch.

Prior to this, Miss Emma had married James B. Wood of Bellevue, Ohio. On the death of Mr. Sharp, his widow and Martha returned to Bellevue to spend part of their time with the Woods. Mrs. Sharp died in 1910 and Mrs. Wood in 1943. Both are buried in Rural Cemetery in the Peter G. Sharp lot in Stockton, Calif. Mrs. Wood told me about the first camping trip to Yosemite the Sharp family made in 1900. They drove a six-horse freight wagon into Wawona where they camped for one month. The road was hot and dusty and the trip most difficult. On the way to Glacier Point, two of the horses died, perhaps from too much cold mountain water or poison weed. The dust was a foot deep on the road, but in spite of the long, difficult trip, they remember Yosemite as a most scenic place. During the 34 and a half years as a Yosemite Park Ranger and 38 years living in the Park, it had been a wonderful life,” wrote John. “Martha and I had many interestisng experiences.

John Bingaman

If I were a young fellow and the clock could be turned back, I would want to do it all over.” John retired in late 1956 and he and Martha turned to trailer life, spending their winters in the desert and summers in the mountains and national parks. John made a major contribution after his retirement. He wrote three books documenting his experiences. His first book completed in 1961 titled “Guardians of Yosemite.” Bellevue Historian Bill Oddo writes a weekly column for The Bellevue Gazette.

Rio’s Olympic waterways full of trash, sewage JENNY BARCHFIELD Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO — Rio de Janeiro’s endless beaches and lush tropical forest will be a photographer’s dream during the 2016 Olympics. But zoom in on the likes of once-pristine Guanabara Bay, and the picture is of household trash and raw sewage. In the neon green waters around the site of the future Olympic Park, the average fecal pollution rate is 78 times that of the Brazilian government’s “satisfactory” limit — and 195 times the level considered safe in the U.S. Nearly 70 percent of Rio’s sewage goes untreated, meaning runoff from its many slums and poor neighborhoods drain into waters soon to host some of the world’s best athletes. Unless Brazil makes headway in cleaning up - The Bellevue its 4A waters, experts warn

the Summer Games could pose health risks to athletes and mar what officials hope will be a global showcase event. Instead of the soaring vistas of Sugarloaf Mountain, the world could instead see old couches in the bay and tons of dead fish floating atop a city lake. Rio’s Olympic committee has pledged in writing that the pollution problems will be fixed, and many had hoped the Olympics would force authorities to tackle decades of neglect and poor planning that have blighted waterways. Leonardo Gryner, chief operating officer of Rio’s organizing committee, has acknowledged the extent of the water quality problem. But he said projects were “well advanced” to make good on the city’s commitment to reduce 80 percent of the pollution flowing into the bay, where sailing and Gazette wind surfing events are to

In this Oct. 23, photo, biologist Mario Moscatelli takes photographs from trash floating on the polluted waters of the Canal do Fundao in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Moscatelli, who oversees the reforestation of mangrove forests along the bay, said he fears that even if the bay is cleaned up, the state will let it deteriorate after all the athletes have gone home. Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Olympic Games.

Lady Red have lofty goals for upcoming season Amber Hatten Gazette sports writer

It’s not easy being on top. But you’d never know it by looking at the Bellevue girl’s basketball team. The past four years straight they have won the NOL and sectional titles and competed at the district level. That, however, is as far as they have managed to get, but Lady Red head coach Ryan Orshoski says his team’s goal this season is to break through that district barrier. “We’ve had really tough district seedings the past years. Where we’re running into regional and state caliber teams at the district level, so we’ve struggled to get through, but the goal is to break that barrier,” said coach Orshoski. And breaking that barrier — on paper — seems very possible, with the Lady Red featuring six seniors, three juniors and a freshmen. Among those are five returning starters, juniors Carly Santoro and Shelby Stamm and seniors Jake Turner, Janelle Watson and Whitney Schalk. “The girls who were starting at the end of last

year are coming back,” Orshoski said. “We are bringing back a good portion of our scoring. I feel like there are a lot of expectations on us this year and we are welcoming all of those.” Several of the starters from last season, including Turner, Watson and Schalk, were named to All-NOL teams. Turner was named Second-Team All-NOL, Schalk was Honorable Mention AllNOL. Watson was also Second-Team All-NOL and special mention AllNorthwest District, as the Lady Red’s leading rebounder. The most notable return for the Lady Red is Santoro, who was their leading scorer from last

season, averaging 25.4 points per game. She was named First-Team All-NOL, First-Team All Northwest District and Third Team All-Ohio. Santoro also holds the school record for fastest player to make it to 1,000 career points as a sophomore and she is also currently in fifth place in Lady Red history for most points scored. However, near the end of last season, Santoro was faced with a season ending knee injury. She had knee surgery in the off season and sat out tennis in the fall to continue to prepare her “new” knee for basketball. Coach Orshoski said she is good as new. “Carly

has been back for probably a month; she is 100 percent. The doctors tell us that her rebuilt knee is stronger than it was before and is almost better than her other knee. Carly still has that same toughness and style of play as she did before she got hurt last season,” he said. Along with all of these accommodations, Santoro and Watson will be taking on the role of team captains this season. “Janelle and Carly are going to be the captains. After a lot of discussion among the team and coaches, along with player input we thought they were the best selections,” Orshoski pointed out. “They are multiple letterwinners, they lead vocally and through their actions, so they were a natural pick.” The starting line-up this season is going to be somewhat different with 10 players on the varsity roster; Orshoski said many of them are going to play start minutes. “We are going to play a lot of girls. Which means there are going to be a lot of different starting line-ups. But that’s part of the challenge; there could

be quite a handful of girls who could start on any given night,” which Orshoski thinks will make for some interesting and competitive practices. “We are going to play the best five that we believe will give us the best chance of winning that night,” he said. The roster for the 2013 Lady Red includes seniors Schalk, Turner, Jessica Zeitz, Jasmine Hill, Watson and Makala Daniel. Juniors are Sarah Bedell, Tara Rinner, Santoro, Morgan Andrews, Hannah Ruffing and Shelby Stamm. Finishing out the Lady Red roster is freshman

Jenna Strayer. With this line-up, coach Orshoski says his team plans on going after the ball defensively, trying to create offense from defense and scoring off transition. The biggest competition in the NOL for the Lady Red this season, according to coach Orshoski, will be Willard, “Based on standings and how they look on paper, which once the season starts doesn’t mean much. I would say Willard.” Last season the Lady Red shared the NOL title with Shelby, which graduated one of their best players from last season, so this is more of a rebuilding year for them, said Orshoski. The Lady Red seniors are dreaming big. “Their goals are high; the six seniors are going to put it all on the line. They want to make a long tournament run, win the NOL and continue that tradition we’ve had the last several years,” he said. Also the Lady Red only need to win eight games to make coach Ryan Orshoski the winningest coach in Lady Red history.
