Larson discusses State of Schools in Covington

Jennifer Runyon

For the Daily Call

COVINGTON – The State of the Schools Address for Covington school district was held Wednesday. Superintendent Dave Larson opened by thanking the many local businesses who donate to the district. He also shared the district’s mission statement: “The Mission of the Covington Schools is to provide an excellent educational foundation that prepares our students to become productive and responsible citizens.” He then addressed results of the district’s State Report Card. “The report card is just a snapshot of what goes into making productive, responsible adults,” Larson said. This year, the state gave districts letter grades instead of ratings such as “Excellent” or “Effective.” Grades were given for individual areas but no overall grade was given. Overall grades will begin in 2015. Larson spoke about some of the graded areas.

First, Larson addressed the academics score. This is composed of two categories, Performance Index, which measures test results of every student and Indicators Met, which measures how many students have passed the state tests at a minimum level, called proficient, or higher. In order to meet the indicator, 75 percent of students must have passed the evaluations given. Covington failed to meet fourth-grade math and fifth-grade science. Larson then addressed the Performance Index score. In this, Covington earned 98.1 out of 120 points which equates to a B. Larson said the district has been hovering around the 100 mark for a number of years. Next, he spoke about the area of Progress (formerly Value Added), which measures a student’s growth from one grade to the next. This is the area that is tied to teacher evaluations. The rating is based on if students made one year of progress. If they did, the district got a C. If they went above, they earned an A, and if they did not meet the growth requirement, the district got an F.

Gap Closing was the next topic. This looks at if students in all demographic subgroups are making gains in reading, math and graduation. Covington earned a D in this area. “Gap Closing is a concern,” Larson said. The district has two subgroups that are considered in Gap Closing. These are students with disabilities and economically disadvantaged. “We’ve seen a big increase in economically disadvantaged. It changes some of our responsibilities. I think this is a community issue,” Larson said adding that they must make sure that adequate food and clothing is provided in addition to an excellent education. In school year 2006-07, 16.1 percent of the student body was considered economically disadvantaged. In the 201213 school year, that number jumped to 34.9 percent. Under other academic successes, Larson shared that the district had a 100 percent graduation rate for 2013, they have strong Ohio Graduation Test results and students have a high success

rate after graduation. He also mentioned the Third Grade Guarantee which goes into effect this year. If third grade students are not reading at a third grade level, they will be held back in reading. Larson said students are identified for intervention early in an attempt to prevent this. He added that much work has been put into switching over to the new State Common Core and the new teacher and principal evaluation system. He urged anyone with questions to contact him. “I’d be happy to discuss these things and how they’re impacting Covington with you,” he said. He also shared many positive facts about the school system. These included: last year’s seniors getting more than $80,000 in local scholarships, the FFA and agriculture program that’s been added at the high school, and all three of the buildings having wireless technology. The district’s school building project and finances were also discussed. For a report on these, see Monday’s Daily Call.

PIQUA — Piqua high school students will be putting on their dancing shoes and swaying away for a five-hour interval at an upcoming dance marathon aimed at benefiting Children’s Medical Center in Dayton, and also a Nelson Piqua girl who has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The dance marathon will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Piqua High School and student participation is anticipated to be high for the event, said Casey Slater, dance marathon coordinator. The event a part of a nationwide dance marathon program that 300 schools participated in last year. This school year students have been raising funds for the children’s hospital and that fund drive will end with the marathon. “The fund raising culminates with the dance marathon,” Slater said. “Students register, come to the event and celebrate the funds they have raised.” She said so far in the last year the students at the high school have done a great job with raising funds. “They are doing a phenomenal job,” she added. At the marathon students will dance and are encouraged to at least stand the whole time. At the end of the marathon all of the money will be donated to the Dayton children’s hospital, Slater said. The high school has “adopted” four miracle families this year and one of them is the family of 10-year-old Mickayla Nelson. Nelson has been diagnosed Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare cancer of the bone and tissue.

Ohio teacher finds shooting victim near school TOLEDO (AP) — Police say a teacher who was trying to help a stray dog in the parking lot of elementary school in Toledo instead came across a man who had been shot. The teacher says the man came up to her Thursday and told her that he’d been shot. A Toledo police spokesman says Matthew Roehrig of Defiance told officers that he was shot in the back after he had stopped and asked someone for directions. Police told media outlets in Toledo that the man was taken to a hospital, but that his injuries were not life-threatening. A Toledo schools spokeswoman says the shooting near the elementary school happened during parentteacher conferences and led to a 30-minute lockdown.

2016 execution date set for condemned Ohio killer COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court has set an execution date for a Columbus man convicted in the execution-style murders of two men during a 1997 robbery that netted just $100. The court on Friday set the execution date of Jan. 21, 2016, for 39-year-old Kareem Jackson. Jackson was convicted of two counts of aggravated murder and other charges in the murders of Antorio Hunter and Terrance Walker in a Columbus apartment. After Jackson and his friends stole $100 in cash and marijuana from the men, prosecutors say Jackson shot both of them in the back of the head as they begged for their lives. Prosecutors had asked that Jackson be executed by the end of the year, arguing that justice is long overdue and his appeals have been exhausted.

Ohio will soon offer 255 specialty plate designs COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio motorists will soon be able to choose from 255 different specialty license plates after three new ones are added later this month. A new bill, expected to be signed into law by Gov. John Kasich, adds specialty tags for “Nationwide Children’s Hospital,” ”Power Squadron” boating education, and for holders of the Combat Action Ribbon or the Combat Action Badge, according to The Dayton Daily News ( ). Ohio drivers can already shout out their support for cops, cattlemen, firefighters, freemasons, scenic rivers, coal and more. They can tell people to “Celebrate Kids,” ”Choose Life,” ”Donate Life,” ”Share the Road,” ”Support Our Troops,” ”Fish Ohio” or “Visit Our Zoos.” Ohio also offers 58 different plate logos for colleges and universities. Ohio State University is the top seller, with 23,249 sold. The sales generated more than $600,000 in scholarship money for the university and more than $289,000 in extra fees for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The specialty plates generally cost $15 to $25 more than a standard one. Specialty plate sales generated $3 million last year for university scholarship funds, research efforts, children’s sports leagues, foundations, counseling programs and more. State records showed they generated $2.6 million in fees for the motor vehicles bureau. Some specialty plates do not generate revenue for outside organizations. For example, no one profited from the sale of 10,242 “One Nation Under God” plates issued last year. Some of the tags require membership or licenses, such as the Realtor “Sold on Ohio” plate or the Civil Air Patrol or Amateur Radio plates. Others are reserved for military service members and their families. Ohio has 8.9 million licensed drivers and 11.8 million registered vehicles. All license plates are made by inmates at Lebanon Correctional Institution. Prisoners there make about 172,200 plates a year.

Ohio health centers getting more federal money COLUMBUS (AP) — The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says 11 community health centers in Ohio will get $6.8 million in federal money under the new health care law. The federal agency said Thursday that the money will go to two community health centers in Columbus, and to facilities in Akron, Canton, Piketon, West Liberty, Dayton, Zanesville, Cleveland, Franklin and Bowling Green. The Columbus Dispatch reports that the federal money will help serve 59,806 new patients in Ohio and more than 1.25 million patients across the country. Nationally, 236 centers will receive $150 million in grant awards.

Ohio woman, 72, convicted of killing neighbor HAMILTON (AP) — A jury in southwestern Ohio has rejected a 72-year-old woman’s self-defense claim and convicted her of fatally stabbing a neighbor.

HAMILTON (AP) — Authorities say a highspeed police chase in southwestern Ohio ended with a crash and the death of the 24-year-old fleeing driver. The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported that Kevin Cummings was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at about 1 a.m. Friday north of Cincinnati. The patrol said a trooper tried to stop Cummings’ Subaru Impreza for speeding, but the car did a U-turn and sped off, reaching speeds of 100 mph. The patrol says the car was traveling at around 120 mph when Cummings lost control. The car ran off the right side of the road and hit a utility pole and a tree. Cummings wore a seat belt but was still fatally injured. The patrol said alcohol was found in the car.

Ohio man jailed for pointing laser at helicopter COLUMBUS (AP) — A judge in Columbus has sentenced a 27-year-old man to 45 days in jail for pointing a laser into the cockpit of a hovering police helicopter. Michael Rademacher had told officers he was bored when he shined the blue laser at the Columbus police helicopter on March 21. In court Thursday, he called his actions stupid. The pilot of the helicopter, who had experienced other such incidents, said it was the brightest laser he had ever seen. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Rademacher pleaded guilty in September to one felony count of possession of criminal tools. In exchange, a moreserious charge of interfering with the operation of an aircraft with a laser was dropped. The Federal Aviation Administration reported nearly 3,500 laser incidents involving aircraft last year. No troopers were hurt.

Ohio woman was killed before thrown down stairs COLUMBUS (AP) — A central Ohio coroner has ruled that a 35-year-old woman was killed by someone before she was thrown down the stairs of a vacant house. Columbus police said Friday that the death of Amber Henry was a homicide. Police say she was found dead Wednesday in a vacant house, and officers charged her husband with abuse of a corpse for allegedly throwing her body down some stairs in the house. Her husband, 40-year-old Guido Henry turned himself into police Thursday night. He has not been charged in his wife’s slaying. There was no attorney information available for him. The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Henrys have been married since 2008, according to court records, and lived a street over from the house where her body was found.

Hundreds gather for vigil for slain OH firefighter CLEVELAND (AP) — Hundreds gathered for a vigil outside the home of a Cleveland firefighter who was mysteriously gunned down in his driveway last weekend. The gathering on Thursday night celebrated the life of 45-year-old Lt. William Walker. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the people there talked about how the veteran firefighter had touched their lives and made them better people. Police say they don’t know who shot Walker, a firefighter since 1998, multiple times in the chest at his eastside home on Sunday. Dozens of Prince Hall Masons — a fraternal group Walker belonged to — paid their respects at the event, which was dotted with flashing lights from fire trucks and police cruisers. Survivors include his wife and two children.

Teen pleads not guilty in OH crash that killed 2 CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwestern Ohio teenager has been arrested following his not guilty plea to charges of vehicular homicide in the suspected drunken-driving deaths of two other teens. Still wearing a neck brace as a result of the Sept. 4 crash, 18-year-old Kyle Stein pleaded not guilty to four counts of vehicular homicide Thursday in Hamilton County court. Court records don’t list an attorney for Stein. Investigators accuse Stein of being drunk and speeding when he lost control and hit a parked car in Colerain Township. The crash killed his passengers, 16-year-old Rachel McGrath and 19-year-old Eric Moormann. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters says Stein tested positive for alcohol and marijuana. If convicted, Stein could face up to 16 years in prison and a lifetime revocation of his driver’s license.

that Jackson admitted stabbing 56-year-old Diana Ross after Ross knocked her out of a chair and continued to attack her on the ground. The 5-foot-tall Hamilton woman told jurors “I didn’t mean to kill nobody.” Jackson admitted that after seeing Ross stabbed, she ran home with the knife, cleaned off the blood and hid it in a dresser. The jury also convicted her of tampering with evidence. Ohio community health centers served more than 495,000 patients last year, about one-third of them uninsured.

Body of apparent murder victim found in farm field Michael Seffrin

Civitas Media

SIDNEY — The body of James N. Cole was found in a cornfield Friday morning — a week after a neighbor was charged with his murder and nearly a month after he disappeared from his Sidney home. He had a gunshot wound to his head, authori- Cole ties said. At a news conference Friday afternoon at the Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office, authorities said a farmer found Cole’s body in a cornfield in the 9000 block of Smalley Road, near the intersection with Patterson-Halpin Road, at 9:30 a.m. M i c h a el J. Wo o d , 40, remains in jail without bond, Wood charged with aggravated murder. County Prosecutor Tim Sell said at the news conference he will pursue the death penalty in the case. Wood is

scheduled to appear for arraignment in Sidney Municipal Court Monday morning. Since Wood’s arrest Oct. 31, Sidney Police have declined to say what the motive was for the killing. Sell also did not answer that question Friday. “I can’t speak to motive at this time,” he said. He also would not comment on whether Wood has a criminal record. “The body had been basically dropped” near the edge of the field, Sell said. There had been no attempt to bury it. He said Wood did not cooperate with authorities in efforts to find the body. Cole’s body was transported to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office for autopsy and additional forensic testing. Sell said Cole sustained “a gunshot wound to the head.” “We believe we know where the shooting occurred,” Sell said.

Disturbance: Police were called to the 600 block of Beverly Street after two females were having a verbal altercation in the front yard of the residence. Theft: Police responded to the 600 block of Boone Street after a check was stolen from a residence. Found property: Police were called to the 200 block of Manning Street after drug paraphernalia was found on the sidewalk. It was destroyed. Neighbor complaint: Police were called to the 1100 block of Broadway Street after a pumpkin was thrown in a man’s driveway.

Piqua Optimist quarter auction set for Dec. 5

Luke Gronneberg | Sidney Daily News

A farmer harvests corn in the field where the body of James Cole was found Friday next to Smalley Road. Cole’s neighbor, Michael Wood, was arrested last week in connection with Cole’s killing.

“That’s subject to further investigation.” Cole, 78, was reported missing from his 330 Brookburn St. home Oct. 14. Sell said he is believed to have disappeared the previous night. Family members said at the time that it was out of character for him to be away from home. His disappearance prompted pleas by police and family members for help in finding him. On Thursday, police a r re s t e d Michael J. Wood, 40, 412 Brookburn St., and charged him with aggra-

vated murder in Cole’s death. Police said that through the course of the investigation, they learned that Cole was a victim of a homicide. A break in the case that led to Wood’s arrest occurred when a witness came forward, police said. Cole’s and Wood’s homes are separated by one house. Friday’s news conference was a joint conference of the Shelby County Prosecutor’s Office, Shelby County S h e r i f f ’s Office and Sidney Police Department.

Moderately Confused


Family thanks the Piqua community The word awesome is often overused in today’s world. Its meaning seems a bit diluted by everyday use, what it truly means is “to inspire a feeling of reverence” There are no words that can begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for the outpouring of love and sympathy at the passing of our beloved son Kristin Magill. The depths of our loss and sorrow can only be mirrored by the kindness and generosity of family, friends and loved ones, some of whom we had never met. To say thanks seems so insignificant compared to the blessings we’ve been given during this difficult time. To everyone who brought food, sent a card, placed a call we are forever grateful. To everyone who came, or for some, tried to come and say farewell to our precious boy, we were and are overwhelmed and blessed. To our family we are grateful to have all of you to help ease our pain and help hold us up. To our friends, each and every one of you, bring joy to our lives and to Kristin’s friends from far and away who came to share our grief we have been blessed by the kind words and memories you`ve shared. A special thanks to Tom Westfall, we have always felt that this community was lucky to have you. From phone call one you were there for us, you went above and beyond and we are proud to call you our nephew! To bring all the singers from Kristin’s days in school, shows, show choir, music warehouse as well as gathering today’s show choir for Noah. We have nothing but awe and admiration for you. To Misty Iddings, a better friend one could not ask for, for organizing the fantastic families, and friends who prepared and served a wonderful meal, so that our family and friends could enjoy time together, we feel blessed to have you in our lives. To Westminster

Presbyterian Church and pastor Kazey, our thanks for the gracious offer of the fine facility for the meal and the offer of even more if needed. To Zachary Davies, our sweet great-nephew who worked so hard to assemble the slide show, memories we’ll have forever, we are truly thankful. To Leona and Danell Spivey, you are true friends, the music you put together for us was wonderful and to say a simple thanks for doing something for us, that we could not do ourselves, we feel blessed and grateful. To Larry Butt, thank you for helping us through the most difficult day in this family’s history, the hardest day we have ever had to face. You are a terrific man with a giant heart and we are proud to have you as a friend. And a special thanks to the Piqua High School Football Team. We had the privilege of having 60 or so fine young men show up at our home and to watch them gather around our Noah and then to pull us into the embrace and offer us all their love and support. This was truly one of the most touching things we’ve ever seen. Every parent believes their child is special, but we have been truly amazed and humbled by the proof we’ve been given of just how outstanding a young man Kristin had become, by the stream of families, friends and lives he touched some from years ago and miles away, who came to share their love and remembrances with us. The flowers, blan-

kets, chimes and gifts we received will be treasures in our home. Kristin was the best kind of son, the kind that makes a mother and father’s chest swell with pride. He was the best kind of friend, quick with a joke or a helping hand if you needed one, when he was with you it was easy to feel as though you could stand a little taller. And he was the best kind of brother to Noah and to the countless hearts and lives he touched and who claimed him as a brother with his gentle charm and larger than life personality. All of these things it turns out were Kristin’s mission in life. We believe he succeeded. And to the fine young men who helped walk Kristin to his final rest, and to his school friends who sang at graveside, know that you will be forever held as cherished friends and loved ones and that Kristin loved you too. But most of all to our hometown of Piqua, we have crossed paths with so many of you, so often, through the last 25 years, through School and Music and sports that we hadn’t realized what a wonderfully large extended family we had become a part of and we want you to know how truly grateful we are. If the word awesome is overused, then using it to describe our community of friends and the place we call home is to use it in its truest sense. You have filled us all with a feeling of awe and reverence. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. — The Magill family Piqua

WASHINGTON (AP) — The big question ahead of Friday’s release of the October employment report: How much did the 16-day partial government shutdown affect hiring last month? The shutdown may have caused the unemployment rate to spike and hiring to slow. If so, economists expect those trends will be mostly reversed in November. “The government shutdown has created a lot of noise and the numbers are going to be sloppy,” said Phil Orlando, chief equity strategist at Federated Investors. Economists forecast that employers added 122,000 jobs in October, according to a survey by FactSet. That’s sharply lower than the 148,000 added in September. And it would be well below the average job gain of about 180,000 in the first nine months of this year. The unemployment rate is projected to rise to 7.3 percent from 7.2 percent, the first rise since May. Some economists fear the shutdown could cause unemployment to jump to 7.6 percent. A large impact by the shutdown could make it difficult for economists to spot any underlying trends. They may place less weight than usual on October’s report. The Federal Reserve may also look past both October and November’s reports because of the distortions. That’s a big reason many economists expect Fed policymakers won’t pull back on their stimulus efforts until next March. About 450,000 government workers were furloughed during the shutdown. Some employees at government contractors were also likely put on temporary layoff. And workers at restaurants, retail stores and other businesses located near national parks or federal buildings that were closed also likely cut back on staff. Workers on temporary layoff would be classified as unemployed for purposes of the unemployment rate. That could cause the rate to jump. But furloughed workers would still be counted as employed by the government’s survey that counts jobs. As a result, hiring may not look as bad as the unemployment rate. Hiring was already weakening before the shutdown. Employers added an average of just 143,000 jobs from July through September. That’s down from an average of 182,000 from April through June and 207,000 in the first three months of the year. Some recent figures suggest that businesses cut back further during the shutdown. Payroll provider ADP said last week that private companies added just 130,000 jobs last month, down from 145,000 in September. The ADP report doesn’t cover government agencies and wouldn’t be affected by government furloughs. Separately, a survey by the Institute of Supply Management found that factories added jobs more slowly in October than September. Other reports painted a more positive picture. Retail stores, shipping companies, and other services firms stepped up hiring in October, according to a separate ISM survey of service firms.

Stars align for telethon to aid U.S. veterans Lynn Elber

AP Television Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Connie Francis, Alan Alda and Joe Mantegna are joining forces to help raise money for veterans suffering the wounds of war. The trio will host the Homeward Bound telethon to benefit victims of post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. The fourhour event, airing at 7 p.m. EST Sunday on the Military Channel, is a fundraiser for several charities. Other celebrities set to participate include Mark Harmon and other “NCIS” cast members, Kevin Spacey, Jason Bateman, Lou Diamond Phillips, Gloria Loring and James Brolin. Scheduled performers include the American Military Spouses Choir, Patti Austin, Michael Feinstein, Ben Vereen and Steve Tyrell. “This is a 45-yearold dream for me,” said Francis, who entertained troops during the Vietnam War. A telethon was needed then but the social climate wasn’t receptive to aiding veterans, the singer-actress said. The Homeward Bound telethon came together after she gave a speech two years ago criticizing the lack of help for injured veterans and caught the attention of businessman Leonard Wilf, an owner of the

Minnesota Vikings NFL team, Francis said. She and Wilf joined with producer Bruce Charet to establish the Haven From the Storm Foundation for veterans. Money raised by the telethon will be donated to charities that provide services and support to servicemen and women and their family members coping with war’s aftermath, including the American Red Cross and Wounded Warrior Project, telethon organizers said. Gary Smith, whose credits include the Tony and Emmy Awards ceremonies, is the executive producer. Francis, who said she endured a dark period in which she required mental health care, is focusing on victims of PTSD and the high rate of military suicides. She said she wants to erase the stigma of mental illness for those who have served as well as civilians. In 2012, the U.S. military suffered the highest number of suicides ever recorded, prompting then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to declare it an epidemic. The telethon will also stream live online and be rebroadcast on the Armed Forces Network on Veterans Day on Monday. The event’s first two hours will air Sunday on stations PIX11 in New York, WGN Chicago and KTLA Los Angeles.

Review: New Kindle is strong challenge to iPad Air Anick Jesdanun AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — On the heels of Apple’s new, lighter iPad, Amazon has come out with a full-size tablet that weighs even less yet sports a sharper display and a lower price tag. Although Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 hasn’t received as much attention as the iPad Air, it is emerging as the strongest challenger yet to Apple’s device. The new Kindle shares many of the features found in a smaller version that came out Oct. 18. A row of tabs at the top of the screen gives you quick access to Amazon services such as e-books, music, video and shopping. Recently used apps and content appear in the middle so you can return to them quickly. The bottom row has icons for frequently used apps such as email and the camera. Need help? Just hit the “Mayday” button. You’ll be connected within seconds to a live customer-service representative, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You see the representatives in a video box, but they can only hear you and see what’s on your screen. They can also help guide you by placing orange markers on your screen or taking control of your device completely. I found all the reps to be patient as they walked me through attempts to locate a missing book, play a podcast and download items from the Dropbox storage service. In one case, the representative called my cellphone as promised an hour later to follow up. We never found a solution on Dropbox, though — but more on that later. The best part of the new Kindle is its price. Amazon. com Inc. begins shipping it Thursday, starting at $379. That’s cheaper than the new $399 iPad Mini, which has a display that measures 7.9 inches diagonally. The full-size Kindle Fire HDX

In this Sept. 6, 2012, file photo, Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of Amazon, at the introduction of the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Paperwhite personal devices, in Santa Monica, Calif. On the heels of Apple’s new, lighter iPad, Amazon has come out with a full-size tablet that weighs even less yet sports a sharper display and a lower price tag.

has an 8.9-inch screen, just short of the iPad Air’s 9.7 inches. Even cheaper is the 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX, which costs $229. If you can afford a $499 tablet and aren’t a heavy user of Amazon services, you might still consider the iPad Air. Yes, the Kindle is lighter, at about 0.83 pound, or 17 percent less than the Air. But I couldn’t really tell the difference holding the two side by side. And yes, the Kindle has a sharper screen, with a resolution of 339 pixels per inch compared with the iPad’s 264 pixels per inch. But I couldn’t really tell the difference watching the Pixar cartoon “Monsters University” side by side. Where the Air shines is in the build. I find the Air more pleasant to hold because of its curved edges. The Kindle has a soft, rubber-like back, but it doesn’t make up for the boxy edges. The Kindle promises more battery life — at 12 hours, compared with 10 hours for the Air. But I found the two devices drained battery at roughly the same rate when watching Hulu streaming video. In addition, the Air has access to a wide variety of apps available through Apple’s app store. The Kindle uses a modified version of Android and can run a variety of Android apps

— but not all of them. In fact, the new Kindle doesn’t run all the Android apps that are supposed to work with Kindles, including the app for Dropbox. Many of these apps need to be updated every time a new Kindle device comes out, whereas they simply work when new Android devices are out, just as iPad apps work on new iPads. If you are drawn by the Kindle’s price and don’t mind the limited selection, though, the Kindle is a wonderful option. That’s especially so if you’re a frequent Amazon customer. The Kindle is tied to your Amazon account, making it easy to buy everything from audiobooks to vacuum cleaners with a click or two. You also get Amazon’s recommendations for more things to buy, based on physical and digital purchases you’ve made on Amazon in the past. With a $79-a-year Amazon Prime membership, you also get quick access to thousands of free movies and television episodes and the ability to borrow one e-book a month from a select list. You can download the free Prime video to watch wherever you are. On older Kindle Fires and other devices, you’re limited to streaming, which requires a constant Internet connection. Another exclusive Kindle

feature is called X-Ray. When you’re reading a book, you get information about characters and places from Wikipedia and other sources. When you’re listening to music, you see lyrics for selected songs. When you’re watching a movie or TV show, you get information on actors, character summaries and trivia. While watching “Monsters University,” I particularly liked the callout to a pizza truck that appears in most Pixar movies. A little note pops up in the lower left corner. I’ll forgive the fact that it actually shows up during the wrong scene. I didn’t get any supplemental material at all with the iPad. Another thing I didn’t get with the iPad is live help. I had trouble playing “Monsters University” on the iPad initially because I hadn’t finished downloading it yet. I had to figure out on my own that I had to switch to a different app to do that. Both the iPad and the Kindle let you start watching as the download continues. The new full-size Kindle is a great deal at $379. It might even make a nice gift for your tech-challenged friends and relatives, as they can call Mayday rather than you. The Kindle isn’t as good as the iPad Air, but it’s an excellent choice for its price.

Independent woman sets bar high for Mr. Right DEAR ABBY: I’m a single woman who has had a string of unsuccessful relationships. When a man is into me, I’m not into him and vice versa. I know the problem is mostly mine. I’m very independent. I don’t want a man to consume my life — just be a part of it. It seems like the men I date want to smother me. My friends tell me that most women enjoy this. I hate it. I need a certain amount of time alone. I am attracted to manly men, but the ones who are attracted to me are either emotionally needy or they take longer to get ready to go anywhere than I do. It’s frustrating. I have met some men who would have been wonderful catches, but I felt nothing. I know friendship is the basis of all relationships, but physical attraction is important to me. A relationship won’t work if I can’t bring myself to be intimate with the person. In all my years of dating, I have been in love only twice. Any help would be appreciated. — LOST IN WASHINGTON STATE DEAR LOST: I wish I had a magic lamp that would give you what you’re looking for in a puff of smoke, but I don’t. What I can offer is that

you need to continue looking for someone who is as independent as you are, so you can find an attractive man whose needs are similar to yours. Some couples find the process of dating a smooth and easy one. For others it’s complicated, but not impossible. I agree that the basis of strong relationships is friendship and compatibility.

New salon does it with style Belinda M. Paschal Staff Writer

PIQUA — Most people get a cake and a card, maybe even flowers for their birthdays, but Mary Stewart got something she never thought she’d own — a new business. “I always said I’d never own my own business because I thought I’d never want all the responsibility that comes with it, but it was just the right time,” said Stewart, proprietor of Style and Polish Salon, 525 N. Main St. “I turned 50 in September, so this is kind of like my birthday present to myself. The building that houses Style and Polish is the former home of Havenar Auction Services.

Mary Stewart, owner of Style & Polish Salon, located at 525 N. Main Street in Piqua, washes Mary Lou Havenar’s hair at the business on Wednesday. Havenar owned and operated a barber shop at the address for many years.

Style and Polish boasts another well-versed stylist, Gayle Allen, who has more than three decades of salon experience. The services they offer include hair, manicures, pedicures and facial waxing. Stewart said she believes in putting the customer’s needs first and that extends beyond the beauty services offered at her salon. Visitors with children will find an area equipped with books and games to keep youngsters occupied, while older clients can enjoy valet parking service during inclement weather. Style and Polish also features a book-share shelf where clients can

borrow books or add to the collection. “I have a lot of books on my shelf (at home) that I read and don’t read again. I have a lot of clients who read, so I thought it would be a good idea to recycle the books,” Stewart said. Stewart hopes that clients will find her salon a friendly place that they will leave feeling better than when they arrived. “I wanted a place that was small and personal because, at the end of the day, it is all about the relationships we build and the friends that we make,” she said.

Great moment in Miami East history Vikings romp over Panthers for first playoff win David Fong Civitas Media

CASSTOWN — The more Max Current talked about current events, the more the past seemed like ancient history. With his players gathered around him on bended knee, the smiles plastered across their faces seemingly igniting the frigid night air, Current pointed out his team’s accomplishments — and where they rank in history. “I am (darn) proud of this team,” Current said. “This is the first 10-win team in school history and the first playoff win in school history. This is one of the greatest moments I’ve ever had as a coach.” And it is, without question, the greatest moment in Miami East High School football history. The Vikings — just 14 years removed from a 1-39 four-year stretch — knocked off TriCounty North 38-14 in a Division VI, Region 22 regional quarterfinal playoff game Friday. With the win, Miami East (10-1) moves on to the regional semifinals, where it will take on Mechanicsburg — a 50-13 winner of National Trail — next week at a neutral site that will be announced Sunday. Forget about the past — for the Vikings, the future is now. “This is the best feeling ever,” said junior quarterback Conner Hellyer, who completed nine of 13 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns. It was a game that was never in doubt as the Vikings jumped out to a 24-0 lead — scoring on five of its first six drives — and never looked back. East’s offensive line opened up massive holes for its trio of running backs — Michael Fellers, Alex Brewer and Colton McKinney — while its defense snuffed out nearly everything TriCounty North tried on offense. Friday’s game barely resembled the regular season meeting between the two teams, which saw TC North jump out to a 14-0 lead before Miami East came back to win in overtime, 24-21.

East raced out to a 7-0 lead on a 3-yard touchdown run by Brewer, then increased the score to 10-0 on Fellers’ 32-yard field goal. On its third drive, the Vikings essentially put the game out of reach early in the second quarter. Hellyer completed a 22-yard pass to Fellers to set up Brewer’s second touchdown run of the game, another 3-yard score that put the Vikings up 17-0. Fellers — who scarcely came off the field Friday — finished with 11 carries for 71 yards and four catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also started at safety and handled all the Vikings’ kicking duties. “This feels great,” Fellers said. “I grew up playing football my whole life and always wanted to be out here. Some of the best memories of my life have been on this field. It feels great to be able to win the last game I’ll ever play on this field.” Miami East would extend its lead to 24-0 when Hellyer hooked up with Dalton Allen on a 25-yard pass and McKinney added a pair of long runs — the second of which was a 13-yard touchdown scamper. “Our offensive line did an outstanding job, our backs all ran the ball well and Conner Hellyer threw the ball really

well,” Current said. Tri-County North would cut East’s lead to 24-7 when Colton Booth completed a 45-yard halfback pass to Austin Elmore for a touchdown in the second quarter and was threatening to score again just before halftime, but Allen picked off a pass in the endzone on the final play of the second quarter to preserve the 24-7 lead.

the second half, essentially turning the final 24 minutes of the game into a victory parade for the Vikings. The Vikings would add two more touchdowns in the second half. The first came when Hellyer hooked up with Fellers on a 39-yard screen pass that saw Fellers juke a pair of defenders, then outrace the rest of the Panther defense to the endzone to put the Vikings up 31-7. The Vikings would add to that later in the quarter

when Hellyer eluded a sack, rolled to his left and found Allen open in the endzone for another touchdown. Tri-County North would add a touchdown against East’s reserves in the final minutes — but that was largely cosmetic. The game — and the night — belonged to the Vikings. “I’m so proud of these kids,” Current said. “I couldn’t be happier right now.” And the past couldn’t be buried any deeper.

‘Chud’ has Browns believing they can win Team full of confidence heading into bye week

AP Photo

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (17) is sacked by Cincinnati Bengals defensive ends Carlos Dunlap (96) and Michael Johnson (93) last week.

Bengals expect true test Sunday Cincinnati not paying attention to Ravens record BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have long admired and respected the success of the Baltimore Ravens, their accomplished rival in the AFC North. That feeling hasn’t changed, even though the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens bring a 3-5 record into Sunday’s matchup against the first-place Bengals. Cincinnati (6-3) has far outshined Baltimore this season, yet the Bengals still believe the true test of how far they’ve come will be determined by how they fare against the desperate Ravens. “I always use the Baltimore Ravens as a measuring stick,” said Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis, who earned a Super Bowl ring in 2001 as Baltimore’s defensive coordinator. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown four interceptions and only two touchdown passes in four career games against the Ravens. Although the Baltimore defense has changed dramatically since that Super Bowl victory last February, Dalton knows he must be at his best on Sunday at a stadium where Cincinnati hasn’t won since 2009. “The Ravens have been one of the best teams in this division for a while,”

Dalton said. “Anytime you can go against teams like they’ve had, you see where you’re at and see what kind of team that you’ve got. We don’t expect anything less this year.” With a victory, Baltimore can move within a game of Cincinnati in the loss column. A defeat would all but end the Ravens’ chances of repeating as division champs. “We’re kind of in a corner, but you’re always in a corner,” coach John Harbaugh said. “How we handle it will be what’s remembered.” The Ravens are teetering on the edge of a cliff. The Bengals are poised to give them a hefty push. “This game is more important to them,” Cincinnati left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “We realize we have a chance to go in and take control of our division.” ___ Five things to know about the BengalsRavens matchup: ATKINS OUT: The Bengals will play their first full game without standout defensive tackle Geno Atkins, who tore his right ACL in a loss to Miami on Oct. 31. “Geno is definitely the one guy who has stood out for them,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. “It’s a shame that he’s not going to be able to be out there, and I’m sure that will affect them in some way. But they’ve got a bunch of guys over there that can get after the quarterback.” Brandon Thompson replaced Atkins against Miami and finished with seven tackles.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Shortly after he was hired as a rookie NFL coach, Rob Chudzinski looked Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson in the eyes. In laying out plans for his first season, Chudzinski promised Jackson his team would attack — on offense and defense. He vowed the Browns would take chances in the kicking game and not be afraid to go for it on fourth downs. He assured Jackson, one of Cleveland’s most respected veterans and a captain, things were going to change. The Browns, perennial losers, would be different. They would win. As long as they followed his plan. “Everything,” Jackson said, “has held true.” Under Chudzinski’s steadying hand, the Browns, kicked around and mostly ignored for years, reached the bye week looking and feeling like a different team. At 4-5, they’re one win from

matching last season’s total, and for the first time since 2007, legions of suffering Cleveland fans are talking about next week’s game in Cincinnati — not next April’s draft. Two weeks ago, the Browns took the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs down to the wire before losing on the road. Last Sunday, they ended an 11-game losing streak to the Baltimore Ravens. Not only did the Browns beat the defending Super Bowl champions, but the AFC North’s “kid brother” as Chudzinski called his team, stood up and returned every extra shove and forearm shiver the Ravens threw at them. These aren’t the same Browns, who have lost at least 11 games in each of the past five seasons and are on their fourth coach since 2008. These Browns have some swagger, and it starts with at the top, from the man they call “Chud.”

Johnson moves closer to title Will start up front Sunday AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson won the pole Friday for the penultimate race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, moving him a step closer to his sixth NASCAR title. The five-time NASCAR champion set a track record with a lap of 139.222 mph in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet to earn the top starting spot for Sunday's race at Phoenix International Raceway. The lap broke the mark of 138.766 set by Kyle Busch last November. "Track records are awesome," Johnson said after the qualifying session. "I don't qualify on pole all that often, so I take great pride in them, especially track records. Very cool to do, and clearly a great time in the season and a great time in the Chase." Matt Kenseth will start 14th in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Kenseth trails Johnson by seven points with two races remaining in the Chase. Denny Hamlin quali-

fied second with a lap at 139.023 for JGR, but he went out much later in Friday's session than teammate Kenseth. Joey Logano qualified third in a Penske Racing Ford, and Kyle Busch was fourth as both of Kenseth's teammates outqualified the title contender. Both Hamlin and Logano marveled at Johnson's performance. "He's been in kill mode for a while," said Logano. "When they are running for that championship, they find that extra notch that a lot of other teams can't find." Johnson is coming off a dominating performance last week at Texas, where he led 255 of the 334 laps to win his sixth race of the season and break a tie with Kenseth in the standings. "Last week, I ran second to him for a while and just to see the speed in his car — and then he unloads today and you watch in practice how fast his car was," Logano said

Historic items from JFK assassination on display

Engagement announcement


r. and Mrs. Michael P. Yannucci of Piqua are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Emily Jane Yannucci, to William (BJ) • Piqua Daily Call

Dan Sewell Associated Press

Bryan Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. William Bryan Sr. of Dallas, Texas. The bride-elect graduated from the University of Notre Dame with an aerospace engineering degree. She manages a team of engineers on the 737 airplane program at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The future groom received a mechanical engineering degree from Arizona State University. He is employed as a customer engineer on the 787 airplane program at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. A May 2014 wedding is planned and the couple will reside in Kirkland, Wash.

DAYTON (AP) — Many items that make up the searing images from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — from the illfated presidential limousine, to the gravesite eternal flame, to the historic Air Force One plane where Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office — are available for public viewing 50 years later. In some cases, officials had to scramble to make that happen. Aboard the plane, now in a hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, visitors squeeze down a narrow walkway to stand where people packed into its sweltering state room to watch Johnson, Kennedy’s vice president, sworn in, with Jacqueline Kennedy alongside in the suit stained by her husband’s blood. “It’s getting hotter and hotter, people are crammed in, emotions are getting higher and higher,� explained Jeff Underwood, historian of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, reflecting the famous images

from the plane. As on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, it wasn’t clear in the first hours after the shooting what was unfolding, he said. Johnson wanted to show the nation that a constitutional transfer of power had been made, and Mrs. Kennedy insisted upon being there, Underwood said. Visitors can also see the saw cuts in a rear wall hastily made by Air Force crew members who didn’t want the late president’s coffin carried in the cargo hold. They removed two rows of seats for the coffin, which Mrs. Kennedy sat across from on the flight back to Washington. Experiencing history in a personal way by being where it happened goes beyond reading it, Underwood said Friday during a news media tour. “Sometimes I see the looks on the faces (of visitors), and it all comes back to me,� said Underwood, a fourth-grader in 1963. “The story is so visceral.� The federal spending reductions of the sequester had in May halted shuttle bus trips from the museum to the hangar, but museum officials

decided to resume the tours on a trimmed schedule with the anniversary approaching. The Boeing jet — built specially in 1962 for presidential use — was retired by the Air Force in 1998, having flown eight presidents starting with Kennedy. Among the other items that were part of the events of late November 1963 on display around the county: — The eternal flame was recently returned to its spot at Kennedy’s gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia after months of repairs and upgrades. The flame was on a temporary burner in the cemetery visible to tourists during the project. __ The limousine the Kennedys were riding in when the president was fatally shot in Dallas is at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. __ The flag that draped the president’s coffin and the saddle, sword and boots from the “riderless horse� in his funeral procession are among the artifacts being exhibited for the first time starting Nov. 22 at the Kennedy Library in Boston.

One of world’s strongest storms hits Philippines Oliver Teves Teresa Cerojano Associated Press

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — One of the strongest storms on record slammed into the central Philippines on Friday, killing at least four people, forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes and knocking out power and communications in several provinces. But the nation appeared to avoid a major disaster because the rapidly moving typhoon blew away before wreaking more damage, officials said. Typhoon Haiyan raced across a string of islands from east to west — Samar, Leyte, Cebu and Panay — and lashed beach communities. Nearly 750,000 people were forced to flee their homes. Weather officials said Haiyan had sustained winds of 235 kph (147 mph) with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph) when it made landfall. By those measurements, Haiyan would be comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S., knocking on the door of the top category, a 5. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are the same thing. They are just called different names in different parts of the world. Because of cut-off communications in the Philippines, it was impossible to know the full extent of casualties and damage. At least two people were electrocuted in storm-related accidents, one person was killed by a fallen tree and another was struck by lightning, official reports said. Southern Leyte Gov. Roger Mercado said the typhoon triggered landslides that blocked roads, uprooted trees and ripped roofs off houses around his residence. The dense clouds and heavy rains made the day seem almost as dark as night, he said. “When you’re faced with such a scenario, you can only pray, and pray and pray,” Mercado told The Associated Press by telephone, adding that mayors in the province had not called in to report any major damage. “I hope that means they were spared and not the other way around,” he said. “My worst fear is there will be massive loss of lives and property.” Eduardo del Rosario, head of the disaster response agency, said a powerful typhoon that also hit the central Philippines in 1990 killed 508 people and left 246 missing, but this time authorities had ordered pre-emptive evacuation and other measures to minimize casualties. He said the speed at which the typhoon sliced through the central islands — 40 kph (25 mph) — helped prevent its 600-kilometer (375mile) band of rain clouds from dumping enough of their load to overflow waterways. Flooding from heavy rains is often the main cause of deaths from typhoons. “It has helped that the typhoon blew very fast in terms of preventing lots of casualties,” regional military commander Lt. Gen. Roy Deveraturda said. He said the massive evacuation of villagers before the storm also saved many lives. The Philippines, which is hit by about 20 typhoons and storms a year, has in recent years become more serious about preparations to reduce deaths. Public service announcements are frequent, as are warnings by the president and highranking officials that are regularly carried on radio and TV and social networking sites. Provincial governors and mayors have taken a hands-on approach during crises, supervising evacuations, inspecting shelters and efforts to stockpile

food and relief supplies. President Benigno Aquino III assured the public of war-like preparations, with three C-130 air force cargo planes and 32 military helicopters and planes on standby, along with 20 navy ships. Among the evacuees were thousands of residents of Bohol who had been camped in tents and other makeshift shelters since a magnitude-7.2 earthquake hit the island province last month. Relief workers said they were struggling to find ways to deliver food and other supplies, with roads blocked by landslides and fallen trees. The storm “unleashed fierce winds and harsh rains that uprooted big trees and toppled electric poles and power lines,” said Aaron Aspi, a spokesman for World Vision in Bohol. From Samar, the typhoon battered Leyte, then the northern part of Cebu and nearby islands before lashing Panay — islands with some of the best beach resorts in the Philippines. As of 8 p.m., the typhoon was north of Palawan province, 320 kilometers (200 miles) southwest of Manila, and had weakened a bit with sustained winds of 215 kph (134 mph). Forecasters said the storm was expected to move out of the country and into the South China Sea on Saturday morning, where it was likely to pick up renewed strength on its way toward Vietnam. Dozens of flights in the central and southern Philippines were canceled. A storm surge estimated at 5 meters (15 feet) damaged a seaside airport in Leyte’s Tacloban city. Airport workers moved to the tower and were safe but no other details had been reported because communications were cut by the typhoon, aviation official John Andrews said. “They’ve been incommunicado. The last message we got from them was that the airport was ruined,” Andrews said. Andrews said the typhoon also damaged the airport in Kalibo town in Aklan. World weather experts are calling Hiayan one of the strongest tropical cyclones on record at the time it hit land, but not quite the windiest. There are disputes over just how strong it is because of differences in the way storms are measured. “In terms of the world I don’t think it’s the strongest,” said Taoyang Peng, a tropical cyclone scientist at the World Meteorological Organization in Geneva. But he added that “it is one of the strongest typhoons to make landfall” and probably the strongest to hit the Philippines. The U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center put Haiyan’s sustained winds at 315 kph (196 mph) just minutes before it made landfall Thursday, which would be a world record. However, officials in Tokyo and the Philippines but the wind speed at about 235 kph (147 mph). Peng said his group considers Tokyo the authority in this case because it’s the closest regional center to the storm. The best way to measure a storm is with radar from a plane flying in and out of it. That’s not done in Asia, where they use satellite imagery and ground measurements instead. Not until meteorologists can conduct a deep investigation will scientists know just how strong Haiyan actually was, but it will easily be one of the strongest on record, former U.S. National Hurricane Center director Max Mayfield told the AP on Friday. Mayfield described looking at radar images of Haiyan, saying, “it has got to weaken, it has got to weaken” — and yet it didn’t.

Tipsy turkeys: NH birds fed beer for flavor, size Associated Press

HENNIKER, N.H. (AP) — When it comes to pairing beer with poultry, Joe Morette isn’t too fussy. His turkeys will drink just about anything. Morette, who is raising about 50 Thanksgiving turkeys this year, has been giving his birds beer since 1993, when he and his workers popped open a few cans after work on a hot July day. A turkey knocked one over and started drinking, he said, and they’ve been sipping the suds ever since. Morette, who prefers serving the turkeys lager, insists the beer makes birds fatter, more flavorful and juicier. “Oh, yeah, it’s noticeable,” he said. “It’s not a strong, gamey flavor, it’s a nice turkey flavor.” Longtime customer Dan Bourque, a Manchester

attorney, said he hasn’t had a bad bird yet from Morette. He said the turkeys are far superior to the supermarket varieties. “We find the gravy is much darker, and much tastier,” he said. “The bird overall has a slightly different taste that is very appealing.” The animal rights group PETA said turkeys shouldn’t be fed beer and that “farmers across the country use questionable practices to keep costs down or to alter the taste of animals’ flesh because their priority is profit, not the animals’ welfare.” But a poultry expert with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension said it is unlikely the birds are suffering. “I don’t know exactly how much beer each turkey is consuming, but it would have to be a lot in order for it to kind of have the

same effect as too much beer on people,” said Carl Majewski, field specialist in food and agriculture. “I imagine it’s not enough to really make ‘em tipsy or anything like that. It’s just enjoying a beer with their

But the rest seemed alert and no worse for the wear. “Turkeys don’t seem to be the brightest, so they could stumble and you wouldn’t know if they drank too much or not,” Morette said. Majewski said the additional calories and carbohydrates probably do make the birds a bit bigger, and like anything the birds eat, beer likely has some effect on flavor. Juiciness is another matter, he said. “I think it has as much to do with how you cook it rather than what it’s been eating,” he said. “You can take a really well-fed bird and make it not very juicy.” Majewski, who brews beer at home, also raises chickens. But he has no plans to embrace Morette’s methods. “Any beer that we have is too good for them, and I’m going to drink it instead,” he said.

accountability,” Leahy said. Journalists and open government groups that want Congress to remove the proposals say federal law already bars the release of most personal information and the provisions are too broad. “Members of the public have a right to know about agricultural and livestock operations that affect them, including where such operations are located,” a coalition of 43 groups, including Society for Professional Journalists, Sunlight Foundation and said in a letter Wednesday to House and Senate farm bill negotiators. “This information is especially critical for people who live near or share waterways with concentrated animal feeding operations.” Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Ark., who wrote one of the proposals, said many farmers and ranchers live on their farms, so releasing corporate addresses of their companies is the same as releasing their home addresses. Crawford said farmers and ranchers should be able to provide personal information securely to the Agriculture Department, but they believe that environmental activist groups could obtain the material if it were shared with the EPA. “Activist groups should not be able to leverage their relationship with the EPA to get this information that could pose a threat,” Crawford said. Colin Woodall of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association cited cases of people trashing farmers’ property. “There are more and more folks on the activist side that don’t like what we do, and we want

to protect our members,” Woodall said. An attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, Jon Devine, one of the groups that received the personal information about some farmers, said his group wasn’t interested in such details and returned the information when the EPA asked for it. He said the farm bill would go well beyond limiting such personal information and could jeopardize groups from getting facts they say they need, including the locations of farms. Craig Cox of the Environmental Working Group said he worried that the provisions could interfere with his group’s ability to compile information about farm subsidies distributed every year, which the farm industry complains about. It’s unclear whether the House language could be interpreted to restrict information about subsidies, he said. His organization has run into problems from exemptions in the farm law in 2008, which prevent it from learning the names of some individuals who received subsidies through businesses. The Obama administration last year withheld all or parts of government records more than 23,000 times under laws that prohibit the release of information under the Freedom of Information Act. That was a decline from a four-year high of nearly 31,000 such times in 2011. The Agriculture Department has remained consistent in the number of times it cited any of 14 such different laws to withhold its records, an average of 462 times annually since President Barack Obama took office.

meal. Why not?” Kathi Brock, national director of Humane Heartland, which oversees the treatment of farm animals, said that standards from the American Humane Association don’t prohibit

serving beer to animals. “I consulted with an avian veterinarian who said that while giving beer to turkeys is not a standard protocol, hops could be beneficial for the intestinal tract,” Brock said in an email. Morette’s turkeys are not the first animals to consume alcohol. Japanese farmers have been said to feed cattle beer to stimulate their appetites. And a winemaker and farmer in the south of France have experimented with feeding cows the remainders of pressed grapes to produce meat they’ve dubbed “Vinbovin.” During one recent feeding, Morette’s birds dipped their beaks repeatedly into the foamy liquid in a watering trough. A few minutes later, at least one appeared rather dazed, with eyes narrowed to slits and beer dribbling out of its beak.
