Huff: ‘Outstanding year for us’ BY SHARON SEMANIE For the Daily Call PIQUA — Describing 2012 as “an outstanding year for us,” Piqua City Manager Gary Huff recited a tally of impressive accomplishments undertaken by the city in recent months for members of the Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce and invited guests gathered Thursday morning at the Fort Piqua Plaza as part of the annual State of the City message. Huff, who arrived in Piqua from Fishers, Ind. 16 months ago, didn’t waste any time describing the myriad projects involving the city and resident volunteers

as well as 2013 initiatives, several which he described as “game changers“ for the local community. Among the 2012 accomplishments cited were the following: • East Ash Street Renovation ($1.9 million) to improve the “eastern corridor” using local, state and federal funds. • Power Service Center ($4.5 million) described as a major expansion project with advanced technology, which in the future, will enable the city to determine outages before residents learn about them; includes an emergency operations center.

TROY — Two Tippecanoe students who authorities charged with penning threatening notes at the high and middle school both faced a judge Thursday morning in Miami County Juvenile Court at their arraignments. At the hearing both male students, a 14-yearold Tipp City Middle School seventh-grader and the 15-year-old Tipp City High School freshman, were read the charges against them, which are felony inducing panic, and aggravated menacing and disorderly conduct. At the separate hearings both of the teens entered pleas of denial, according to juvenile court officials, which is essentially a juvenile court plea of not guilty. Afterward, each juve-

nile was returned to the West Central Juvenile Detention Center where they will remain at least until today when the pair attends their pretrial hearings, court staff said. The 14-year-old and the 15-year-old will then have their separate adjudicatory hearings in juvenile court March 1 and March 7, respectively, according to juvenile court. Authorities took both teens into custody Wednesday stemming from a series of five threatening notes discovered around the school, including several found in restrooms. The 15-year-old was charged for leaving the first threatening note, which was found in a restroom, and it’s believed he was only responsible for the first note alone due to his school absence on Feb. 14 and 15. The 14-year-old was taken into custody for allegedly scribbling a note, the fifth one found at the school, and leaving it on a cafeteria table earlier this

FBI consultant reassures nervous, concerned parents BY JOYELL NEVINS Record Herald Editor TIPP CITY – The parking lot was packed full and it was standing room only Wednesday, as nervous and concerned parents met with the superintendent of Tipp City Schools, the Tipp police detectives, and a FBI consultant. The Community Safety Meeting was held in the wake of five notes hinting at a bomb threat found at the Tippecanoe High and Tippecanoe Middle School this past week. Two arrests occurred Wednesday morning and afternoon for two of the five notes. Both Tipp City Police Detective Chris Graham and Tippecanoe Superintendent Dr. John Kronour emphasized they do not believe these were threats of violence that were going to be acted out. “My opinion is it was no credible threat,” Graham said, adding, “Are we reacting as if they were? Absolutely.” Kronour said his gut opinion was the writers were “three to five students who have done this as a way to get attention.” Many parents were still very shook up about the possibility of a threat. “This is a terrorist act in their home away from home,” Amy Liskey said. She is the parent of an L.T. Ball Intermediate and a Tippecanoe Middle School student. FBI Special Agent Tim Ferguson, who trained at Quantico, a major Marine Corps training and

COVINGTON — The Covington Exempted Village Board of Education met Thursday night at the high school commons. The board approved the school calendar for the 2013-14 school year. Superintendent Dave Larson said the calendar is similar to the one used this year, but the new one has two weeks off for Christmas and two days off at Easter instead of the normal three days. The first day of school next year will be Aug. 20 and they will again get out before Memorial Day. Membership was approved for the Ohio School Board Association at a cost of $3,185. The dues, along with a School Management News subscription at $150, brings the total to $3,335. Larson shared that a student teacher from the University of Dayton is working with third grade teacher Angie Knick until March 15. And board member Lee Harmon shared that the school and the village are applying for a Safe Routes to School grant. If this money is received, it will be used to add sidewalks and to have extra police patrols at the schools during the mornings and afternoons. Following the BOE meeting, Larson delivered the State of the Schools Address and a community meeting was held regarding the upcoming levy and possible building project. For a story on these, see Saturday’s Daily Call.

week. He confessed to writing the note to authorities. School officials said expulsion proceedings for both students will be “forthcoming.” The second, third and fourth notes are still being investigated and Tipp City police continue to hold a visual presence at the school. Tipp City Police Sgt. Chris Burris said preliminary costs in police overtime alone showed nearly $2,000 spent as a result of the panic the notes created, and said a more finite list of expenses would be determined later this week. The cost, Burris added, is expected to rise and could include the cost of having bomb-sniffing dogs at the schools three times since the notes first started being discovered, in addition to other expenses the taxpayers and the city incurred. “It’s constantly rising,” he said of the associated costs. Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal said there has not been any discussions regarding restitution being paid back for the public dollars used as a result of the panic the two students allegedly created. “But it’s certainly a possibility,” Nasal said. According to the Tipp City Police Department

the two boys are acquainted with one another but it isn’t known if they were working in concert with one another. Meanwhile, a 13-yearold eighth-grader at Troy Junior High School also appeared in juvenile court Thursday afternoon after he was charged with felony inducing panic, also a second-degree felony, for allegedly leaving a note at the school Wednesday that read, “Everyone going to die on 2/27/13.” He denied the charge at his arraignment. That threatening note was the seventh such note found at area schools in as many days. That student, also not being identified, is expected to undergo a pretrial conference today and an adjudicatory hearing is scheduled for March 5. He remains detained at the juvenile detention facility. Administrators at Troy schools said they will talk to the teen and then determine school discipline at a later date. A sixth note found at the Troy High School on Tuesday remains under investigation. That note stated, “Everyone in school will die 2/22/13.” No notes were known to be found at any school district in Miami County on Thursday. All three juveniles could face additional charges as the separate investigations continue.

FBI Continued from page 1 technology base, relayed a study is currently underway at the base that evaluates how often actions follow threats such as the ones made in the notes this week. “In less than 1 percent (of these cases) is violent acts that follow,” Ferguson said. Kronour and Ferguson both acknowledged the over-the-top efforts of the Tipp City Police. “Thanks to the Tipp police for the time, effort and energy spent to keep our kids safe in Tipp City,” Kronour said. Ferguson encouraged, “Be thankful for the police department that you have. They truly have your best interest and your kids at heart.” Kronour informed parents that they were purposely kept in the dark on some information to help catch the perpetrators. “We didn’t tell you the security procedures in place because each and every day procedures changed a little bit,” Kronour said. “We don’t want perpetrators to know what to expect.” He said they’ve varied from day to day when backpacks are searched, where in the building kids enter, what times police patrols come by, and what the procedure or monitoring system is for the bathrooms. The actual content of the notes are not shared, so when the culprits are caught, that piece of information can help determine the identity of the writer, Graham said. Kronour explained that One Call Now messages, although they went out every day, were specifically not sent out right after the bomb threats occurred. That would mean a lot of parents flooding the phones and dashing to come get their child. “Then we’re now bringing 500 sets of parents to where a bomb may go off,” Kronour said. There also was much discussion about how tight security should be in the future.



Students Continued from page 1


“We could have all the students on lockdown and know where they are at all times, but that’s not the culture we have, nor is it the culture we want to have,” Kronour said, “We don’t want to live in fear.” Kronour informed the group that a police presence has been increased in the school complexes for over a month now, with officers parking their cruisers in the lots and walking periodically through school halls during their down time. There will be a full evacuation drill this spring, and other drills added throughout the year. Another suggestion from a parent, that Kronour acknowledged the district was looking into, was an anonymous tip phone line or email account for teenagers or children that don’t feel comfortable talking to their parents. Kronour also said counselors at the school are prepared and ready to talk to the students if they seek help. At the middle school, principal Greg Southers also felt the discussions should happen with the parents. “With the age of our students, we have some parents that really want their students to talk about it with their peers and teachers and some do not. They feel more comfortable having those conversations at home,” he said. “That is the reason we really encourage our students to speak to our counselor so we can honor the wishes of both sides.” Kronour, Ferguson and Graham all stressed the importance of parents talking to kids themselves. Not only for emotional purposes, but to find out what they know or saw. “Your kids are in the frontlines,” Ferguson said. Graham suggested, if they have access, parents look at their kids’ Facebook and Twitter accounts to see who’s talking and what their kids know. “There’s almost always some leakage in these situations,” Ferguson noted.

Midwest swaddled in blanket of snow JIM SALTER Associated Press ST. LOUIS (AP) — Powdery snow, up to a foot and a half in some places, bombarded much of the nation's midsection Thursday, impeding travel and shutting down airports, schools and state legislatures. The widespread winter storm system swirled to the north and east Thursday night, its snow, sleet and freezing rain prompt-

ing winter storm warnings in Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and Illinois. Corey Mead, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said the winter storm would be centered in the upper Midwest by Friday morning. “Even across Kansas, the snowfall rates should continue to taper off through the evening,” Mead said.

The system left behind impressive snow accumulations, especially in western Kansas, where 17 inches fell in Hays. Several accidents and two deaths were blamed on icy and slushy roadways; two people died in crashes Wednesday. Most schools in Kansas and Missouri, and many in neighboring states, were closed Thursday and legislatures shut down in Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Nebraska and

Iowa. Transportation officials in affected states urged people to simply stay home.

Huff was extremely enthusiastic about nine programs unveiled in 2012, which engage residents and build community involvement including Adopt A Program; citizen net; Piqua Business Connect; Interested Neighbors Volunteering Valuable Energy (INVOLVE), Piqua Alert, Next Door, the National Citizen Survey, and Housing Enhancement League of Piqua (HELP). In March the city will introduce a city of Piqua Volunteer Park Ranger program. Without missing a step, the energetic Huff rolled out a series of initiatives for 2013 including several awards which market the city of Piqua such as “Playful City USA,” the “Bicycle Friendly Community” and “Top Work Place,” which came about as the result of input provided by 76 per cent of the city’s workforce.

Again, he also credited the numerous residents who have volunteered to support past and present initiatives and encouraged everyone to get involved in future endeavors.

Anti-fracking Businesses amendment goes nervously await to ballot furloughs YOUNGSTOWN (AP) — The Youngstown city council approved an antifracking amendment for the May 7 primary election ballot — even though there are doubts about whether it could be enforced. The Vindicator newspaper reports that the council on Wednesday night approved the charter amendment for the ballot. It would ban the gas drilling process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the city. Law Director Anthony Farris said the council had no choice but to move the proposal to the ballot after a group called Frack Free Mahoning Valley collected about 4,000 signatures calling for it. The group needs just 1,562 valid signatures to get the measure to the voters. Because the state regulates gas drilling, city officials said the ban would probably be unenforceable, although members of the activist group disagree.

DAYTON (AP) — Business owners and officials of cities surrounding Ohio’s largest military installation say they are increasingly uneasy about possible furloughs brought on by sequestration. Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton could furlough up to 13,000 civilian employees for 22 days beginning in April if Congress and President Barack Obama fail to avert sequestration, or automatic defense and domestic spending reductions set to begin March 1. The Pentagon said Wednesday that those civilian employees could be notified by mid-March. The Dayton Daily News reports increasing nervousness among business owners and city officials in the neighboring cities of Fairborn and Riverside. They say it would have a huge impact. The base is the state’s largest single-site employer.

Body parts found at recycle facility DAYTON (AP) — The discovery of a human leg at a Dayton recycling facility led to the unearthing of the rest of a dead body, and a subsequent investigation into how it got there. The Dayton Daily News says a worker at the Rumpke Recycling Facility found the leg inside a bundle of cardboard Wednesday night. The victim was wearing jeans and work boots, but officials said he was not an employee of the waste-collecting company. His identity has not been released, pending further investigation and notification of family. Police believe the worker discovered the leg possibly around the same time the body arrived at the facility. The gruesome discovery has company supervisors trying to ensure that workers are able to cope with the finding at the plant.

Analysis: Choices loom for Obama on climate change

Serving Piqua since 1883

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4 AKJV)


Gingrich: GOP failing to grasp new demographics WASHINGTON (AP) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says President Barack Obama’s campaign was “eight, maybe 10 years, ahead” of the Republican Party last year in understanding the rapidly changing face of the American electorate. Gingrich tells “CBS This Morning” that GOP strategists have failed to respond effectively to the new demographic landscape. Gingrich, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential

nomination, says poor strategy and questionable consulting cost the Republicans at least nine U.S. Senate seats that “we should have won.” He says, “You can’t just be an opposition party. You have to be a party that has a better alternative.” Gingrich says Democrats have more readily disseminated by dupes in ignoe all know what hapadapted to a voting public rance.

Why aren’t feathers flying over Brennan nomination?


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is talking about climate change like it was 2009. The president, who rarely uttered the words “climate change” or “global warming” during the second half of his first term and during the reelection campaign, has re-inserted it boldly back into his lexicon. In his latest State of the Union address before Congress, Obama sounded like he did in his first, urging lawmakers to limit gases blamed for global warming “for the sake of our children and our future.”Those words followed his inaugural address, in which he said, “We will respond to the threat of climate change.” The difference between then and now is that Obama knows Congress is unlikely to agree. He said that if Congress won’t act, he will through executive action. The question is:What will he do? In his toolbox are things as small as requiring appliances to be more efficient and as big as controlling the largest single source of heattrapping emissions: the carbon pollution from the nation’s coal-fired power plants. How boldly will he act in the face of inevitable pushback from industries and the costs of any new regulations to the fragile economy? Environmentalists already are pressing Obama to kill the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from western Canada to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast as a first public test of his commitment to climate change. “It’s like trying to get to Rome, and there are three or four different roads that get you there,” said David Doniger, a senior attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council, an advocacy group. One of the more expensive options available to Obama is regulating greenhouse gases from the oldest, dirtiest coal plants, which are already struggling to compete with cheap natural gas. Whether operators choose to shut them down or invest in pollution controls, the cost is likely to raise electricity rates. By contrast, moves to boost energy efficiency in buildings and appliances wouldn’t cost as much.

You have no idea what partner will do next, but you hope to be able to show your club support later without committing your side to game. 4. One diamond. Despite your 18 high-card points, you should respond only one diamond, not two. You plan to bid two hearts over the expected two-club rebid by partner and then

bid three spades over partner’s possible three-club rebid. In this way, you will have shown your 4-4-5-0 distribution and a very good hand. Of course, if the bidding goes differently and partner indicates good support for any of your suits, you’ll settle for no less than slam. Tomorrow: Slow and steady wins the race.

■ Living with Children





Primary purpose Kasich funding stiffs many schools omeone recently told me she wanted her children to “think for themselves.” Not me, I said. If I was still in my active parenting years, I would most definitely want my children to think like I do. That would be, in fact, my primary purpose. I would want them to accept that my values are the right values to hold and I’d want them to eventually make every effort to pass those values on to their children. But then, I don’t subscribe to the postmodern notion that all values are equal. I’m not a relativist. But even in the case of a person who doesn’t think like I do and (therefore) doesn’t hold the values I hold, wouldn’t that person still want their children to think like they do? Wouldn’t a person who believes all values are equal, that right and wrong are relative concepts, want their kids to believe likewise? It’s called a worldview, and there’s really little point in investing eighteen or more years of time, effort, and money in raising a child if one is not trying to produce someone who will subscribe to a certain, defined worldview and (therefore) champion certain values. How do you pass your values onto your children? From the earliest possible time in their lives, you talk about your values and you explain how they comprise your code for living. Why do you donate the one hundred dollar bill you found blowing in the wind to the local homeless shelter? Why don’t you allow your children to watch certain movies and television shows? You explain to your children that your definitions of right and wrong, your decisions, and your opinions about various matters are based on certain core principles. Your ability to articulate those principles clearly enough that a 5-year-old can understand them reflects that you are clear on them yourself. And you



Family psychologist John Rosemond answers parents’ questions on his website at


Ohio Gov. John R. Kasich speaks at a special meeting of the Buckeye Association of School Administrators on Jan. 31 in Columbus. This was one of three open press events on Thursday to discuss his new school reform and funding plan. Seated (l-r) are Barbara Mattei-Smith, assistant policy director for education, Dr. Richard Ross, director of 21st Century Education and Ohio Budget Director Tim Keen. BY DAN SEWELL Associated Press CINCINNATI — Questions remained Wednesday about Gov. John Kasich’s new school funding plan, with critics charging that many public schools, including in poor districts, will be shortchanged even though the Republican insisted his proposal was focused on helping students. Kasich defended the plan during his State of the State speech Tuesday night in Lima, saying it has a “common sense” focus on helping those who don’t have the resources to help themselves. “The simple fact of the matter is we’re going to have to work together to make sure that we are moving our resources to those districts that have unique students, that are not as wealthy,those districts that do not have the population; we’ve got to do it together because the current system is not serving the boys and girls in our state as effectively as we could be doing it,” Kasich said. He repeated that the plan he unveiled last month in the latest state effort to resolve

Ohio school funding inequities will help poor school districts and special needs students while adding $1.2 billion in funds over the next two years. But some Democratic officials and education leaders have questioned Kasich’s description, saying it doesn’t offset earlier cuts to schools and it leaves most schools,including many poor districts, without additional dollars. They also question the plan’s increased support for charter schools and expansion of private-school vouchers. “The governor says he is increasing funding for education, but that’s an empty promise,” Ohio Education Association President Patricia Frost-Brooks said in a statement. According to the state, school districts would see varied adjustments to their state funding allotments under Kasich’s formula, including adjustments to compensate for the income level of school district residents, plus adjustments for gifted education, special-needs students, English-language learners, and other categories.

Numbers released earlier this month by the governor’s office show there would be big gains for Findlay and Fostoria, but state funding for most rural schools in northwestern Ohio would be flat. Findlay School District would receive an additional $3.3 million in state aid over the next two years. Fostoria would receive an additional $1.6 million. Many rural schools would lose money under the governor’s funding plan, but Kasich’s budget proposal guarantees their state aid won’t be cut over the next two years.That could change in the future, though. Georgetown Schools Superintendent Christopher Burrows said Wednesday that he remains hopeful about the governor’s plan, even though his southern Ohio district is among many in the state’s economically struggling Appalachian region not projected for any additional state funding. “Obviously,it wasn’t something we did a toe touch about,” Burrows said of the funding. “But in the same breath, I still have the same

Greek yogurt popular with adults, will kids bite? BY CANDICE CHOI AP Food Industry Writer BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Greek yogurt is taking over the dairy aisle, but will kids bite? The question is a critical one for General Mills, which is a dominant player in yogurt for kids, with about half the market. It’s also important to Chobani,the leader in the Greek yogurt category, which is stepping up its courtship of kids — and their parents. It’s a difficult question to answer, though. That’s because the same reasons some adults prefer Greek yogurt over the traditional yogurts Americans usually eat may not mean much to children. Some adults like Greek yogurt for its bitter taste and the thicker consistency that it has because of the way it’s strained. Some health-conscious adults also like it because it has less fat and more protein. But children are a different story: They general like foods that are sweet and don’t care about how much protein is in their snacks. “Whether the benefits of Greek yogurt are meaningful to children or not remains to be seen,” said Ian Friendly, the chief operating officer for the U.S. retail division of General Mills, during an interview with reporters at an industry conference on Tuesday. But the fact that companies are looking at marketing Greek yogurt to kids is a natural progression of a growing market. Since 2007, Greek yogurt has gone from 1 per-

It’s also important to Chobani, the leader in the Greek yogurt category, which is stepping up its courtship of kids — and their parents. cent of the market to 36 percent, with Chobani accounting for about half the market, according to a report by Bernstein Research. The report noted that Greek yogurt could continue growing and peak at more than 50 percent of the broader yogurt market in the U.S. General Mills, which estimates that kids make up 12 percent of the yogurt market, sees an opportunity to lure at least some children. Last month, the company introduced its “Pro-Force” Greek yogurt, which also comes in cups and is marketed for tweens and older children. But the Minneapolis-based company declined to say whether it has any plans to make a Greek yogurt variety of Go-Gurt, the popular squeezable yogurt it makes

for younger children. To tap into the kids market, Chobani last month introduced “Chobani ChampionsTubes” in flavors such as “Chillin’ Cherry” and

“Jammin’ Strawberry,” posing a direct challenge to General Mills’ Go-Gurt. The company first moved into kids territory in 2011, with the introduction of “Chobani

Champions,” which comes in cups and is marketed toward slightly older kids. Chobani also is appealing to parents with its Champions cups and tubes by noting that they have less sugar and more protein than other yogurts for kids; Chobani tubes have 8 grams of sugar and 5 grams of protein. Go-Gurt has about 10 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein. The privately-held company’s introduction of yogurt tubes is just the latest threat to General Mills, which is still scrambling to catch up to the growth of Greek yogurt. If General Mills had known it would become so popular, the company would have jumped into the market sooner, Friendly, General Mills’ COO said. “I don’t think anyone thought that it was going to get as big as it did,” he said during the interview at the Consumer Analyst Group of New York conference in Boca Raton, Fla.

excitement as long as this Straight A plan, the innovation plan, sticks in the Legislature.” A $300 million statewide fund would reward efficiency and innovation,and Burrows said he thinks his district could benefit by using technology to improve education and save money. He said he still has some questions about details of Kasich’s plan, but he thinks it’s better than simply “throwing money at a problem and expecting it to get better.” State Rep. Teresa Fedor, a Toledo Democrat, said in a statement that Kasich’s formula “just gives up on public schools,” and she added that there’s a lot of work still to be done on equalizing school funding in the state. “You know there are almost 400 schools who received zero percent increase, and school districts like Olentangy (one of the state’s wealthier) got a 300 percent increase,” Fedor said.“I’d like to see how that all worked out, and hopefully, we can do something about it.” Kasich said Tuesday the proposed funding represents “a period in transition” and that his proposal ensures no school district will receive less state base funding than last year for the near term. House Speaker William Batchelder, a Republican from Medina, said after the speech that he still considered Kasich’s schools plan “well-conceived.” “Now, how it will work out and what aberrations there may be in different school districts — we don’t know,” Batchelder said, adding that the plan “may require certain finessing and working with.” Among those unhappy with what they’ve seen so far: Franklin City Schools Superintendent Arnol Elam, who last week called on district parents to join an active campaign to prevent Kasich and his legislative allies from being re-elected. Elam was upset that his district just north of Middletown in southwest Ohio is slated for no additional state base funding in the Kasich plan while three wealthier neighboring districts would get increases.



not only talk about your values, but you walk your talk. There’s no room for “Do as I say, not as I do” in an ethical worldview. This is the process by which you shape your child’s character, by which you produce a good citizen, someone who will make the community a better place. Everything else—grades, athletic accomplishments, artistic talents, and so on—is secondary. Raising a mathematically and musically gifted and talented child who wins a scholarship to Harvard is fine, but when all is said and done, good parenting is simply an act of love for your neighbor. But make no mistake, no matter how well you communicate your worldview to your children, they will think for themselves, and from a very early age. They will even make decisions that will cause you to scratch your head in wonder or weep with sorrow. Parenting is an influence; it does not determine the outcome. Even the most well-parented (by whatever standard) child is capable, on any given day, of acting in ways that are completely inconsistent with his or her upbringing. That fact, if not fully accepted, can generate lots of parental lots of frustration, parental guilt, or lots of both. As your great-grandmother put it, “Every child has a mind of his own.”

QUOTED "I've seen snow on the course when I was a kid, but nothing like that. It was crazy." —Rory McIlroy on snow postponing the golf Wednesday

As the 1920 spring sports season loomed on the horizon, the clamor about athletics in Piqua centered not on baseball, but on track. “For the first time in ten years Piqua High School is represented by a track and field team. During the past few years interest has grown in this branch of athletics, but due to lack of facilities for practice no team has been organized until this spring. “Now through the foresight and thoughtfulness of the Board of Education

in the purchase of five acres of land centrally located, our high school has been provided with a site where we hope sometime to have the best athletic park in the state.” The Piquonian published an article about the possibility of track at Piqua, a county association and a meet. “A meeting was held in Troy March 8th at which representatives from most of the high schools in Miami County were present. “Plans were discussed for organizing an athletic

meet this year at Piqua about the middle of May. Piqua has not had the track athletics for many years, but the school is showing an interest and enthusiasm in the revival of this form of athletics that is sure to bring good results.” The Call added their view on the track situation. “Much enthusiasm is being worked up in the local high school over the prospect of a first class track team this year, which is one branch of athletics that the school

has not been represented in for years. “Not since the days when Dwight Ginn and Malcolm Campbell cavorted around the old Ash street track , eight or nine years ago, has there been any interest in this branch of sport. “Several dual meets have been arranged and combined with the AllCounty meet which is to be held within the near future, ought to make an attractive card for those who are interested in track

History Continued from page 7 athletics. The best of the Piqua team will be sent to the Miami meet this summer to represent the local High school.” A new track prompted this article. “Many volunteers from the High school are working on the Ash St. playgrounds today helping spread the cinders for the new track. “So far about one third has been constructed and the boys are all doing their bit in an effort to have the work completed in time for the big county athletic meet on the afternoon of May 8. “Following the work on the track efforts will be made to construct the tennis courts and children’s playgrounds. The baseball diamond has already been put in first class shape with but a little something ought to be done behind first base. “The lump that has been a stumbling block behind the infield has been plowed up and removed much to the satisfaction of the third baseman and shortstop. “By the end of the summer the recreation grounds for this section should be near completion and with financial aid from the city a playground that Piqua can be proud of will be constructed.” Piqua did not win the county track meet, but they had a reason for their second place finish. “Because of Piqua’s lack of training Troy high school nosed the local athletes out of first place in the Miami County field meet held at the Ash St.

recreational grounds on Saturday afternoon. “The final score stood, Troy 46 ½ points, Piqua 43, West Milton 10 ½, and Tippecanoe 10. “The members of the track team of the Piqua high school have spent all of the time that should have been used for training in the construction of the track so that the meet could have been used for training in the construction of the track so that the meet could be held in time. “They volunteered for the job and carried it out to a finish but by their unselfish efforts along this line lost the valuable conditioning treatment they could have had during the time spent in actual work on the field. “Those who witnessed the contests say that with a little training and if Piqua had not spent all of time in preparing the field they could have won the meet with ease. Over 600 people from all over the county were on hand to cheer on their favorites. “This was not as large a crowd as was expected, but is considered very good considering that this is the first in years that such a county athletic meet has been attempted. “James Ginn, a senior in the Piqua high school, had the highest individual score and won the first medal of silver for his efforts. “Ginn won the 100 yard dash, Stockham the shot put and the red and blue prevailed in the half mile relay with runners Brown, Neth, Ginn, and Seifried

in a time of 1 minute, 54 seconds.” The preview for the baseball season was one of extreme optimism. “Coach Mote has been working the base ball squad to the utmost the last few weeks, and is now ready for the opening of the season. “To the great joy of everyone our Coach says he has found a pitcher who compares favorably with Christy Mathewson. “The players of the stone wall infield of last year, composed of Nye, Neth, Waybright and Retterbush are still in school and have their positions about assured. “Captain Ginn will again do the catching and so a good infield is assured. With the wealth of available material it will be an easy matter to pick a fast outfield. The general opinion of all school experts is that Piqua will have one of the best base ball teams in many years.” The first game was against Versailles. “The Piqua High school base ball team opened up its schedule Friday by handling a decisive defeat on Versailles, the game being played in that town. When the battle was over, the score stood 12 to 6 with the Red and Blue warriors on top. “The good start of the P.H.S. came as a distinct surprise to their most ardent backers as has been the case in the past as Piqua has been invariably defeated in its base ball contests with the Darke county town.” “The next game was

played with Urbana at Urbana. Piqua lost this game on errors. “It seemed as though everyone was throwing wild that day. Ginn threw away past third once, and Perucker threw over second. “The field was muddy as it had rained the night before and to stand up was very difficult. After a hard fought game the final score was 11 to 9 in favor of Urbana.” Inclement weather forced several games to be postponed, and eventually Versailles found themselves on the Piqua home schedule. “Playing upon the Ash St. grounds for the first time since 1914 the Piqua high school base ball team handed a decisive defeat to the team from Versailles Friday afternoon. “When ‘Bones’ Nye had heaved the last ball over the plate the score stood 11 to 3 with the boys from Darke county on the short end. “All of the Piqua team played good ball and worked together nicely. With a little batting practice to get the old eye in shape they should be able to handle all of their opposition this season with ease.” Piqua hosted Urbana the following week. “By handing a decisive defeat to Urbana Friday afternoon at the Ash St. park, the base ball team of the Piqua high school obtained ample revenge for the walloping administered to them several week ago by the same

team. “Up until the eighth inning the local boys had everything their own way when Urbana staged an eleventh hour rally and scored three runs due mostly to two errors by the Red and Blue combined with three bingles by the invaders. “Piqua soon downed any of the visitor’s hopes of obtaining a lead and the game ended by the score of 6 to 4, with the locals in the clear.” Dayton Stivers then visited Piqua. “Dayton seems to have it in for the teams from Miami County for while Steele High cleaned up on Troy Thursday, the team from Stivers came to Piqua on Friday afternoon and repeated the same dose to the Red and Blue nine, winning 14 to 3. “The lads from Dayton were heavy with the willow and piled up 14 runs against the Piqua team and ‘Bones’ Nye was unable to stop them. They were aided in their scoring by seven errors on the local boys, while the Dayton team did not make a misplay.” The first of two games with Troy was next. “Coming up from behind, Troy used the willow and forced two runs over the pan in the seventh inning capping the defeat from the Piqua team on Thursday afternoon at Highland Park in Troy. “When the smoke of the battle had finally cleared and May of Troy fanned the last two Red and Blue batters the score stood at 4 to 3.

“Over a hundred fans from this city accompanied the team to Troy, while hundreds of enthusiasts from the county seat turned out to witness the game.” The final contest of a seven game season found the Trojans in Piqua. “In a long drawn out game, most of which could have been decided in the high school auditorium by the school debating societies, Troy walked away from the Red and Blue nine on Thursday afternoon by the score of 10 to 5. “Outside of the ninth inning Piqua put up no fight at all and the game up to that time was of the sandlot variety. Piqua was plainly outclassed and the best team won. “Just as the six o’clock whistles were blowing the murder of the local team came to an end and the agony was over for the large crowd of spectators who gathered to see a base ball game but were disappointed. “The game was slow in starting and in the early innings an argument between umpire McClelland and Coach Raymond Mote of the Piqua team on an infield fly, occupied about one half hour of the time.” Editor’s Note: Duane Bachman is a retired superintendent of Piqua City Schools and personality for WPTW Radio.

Hayslett staying busy on track Finishes 2012 with clean sweep at Martinsville Speedway


Cody Shafer demonstrates catching techniques.

Edison hosts baseball camp Youngsters learn fundamentals The Edison Community College baseball team recently hosted a fundamental baseball clinic for boys between the ages of 8 and 12 from the Miami County area. The clinic was held at the Edison Main Campus in Piqua. The Miami County Foundation made this event possible by contributing a generous donation to help purchase equipment and t-shirts for the kids. Young athletes in attendance received an autographed schedule along with instruction on the fundamentals of the game. Coach Tom Martinez and the baseball team received high remarks from parents for allowing their children to have this opportunity. This camp was the first

Korbyn Hayslett of Hayslett Racing has kept busy with indoor racing since the 2012 outdoor racing season ended. Hayslett finished his 2012 Young Guns Series with a clean sweep at Martinsville Speedway. This gave him a second place finish in points for the series. Hayslett then started his indoor season at Du Quoin, IL on November 10th with a third place finish in Jr 1 class and an eighth-place finish in the Jr 1 Clone class after spinning in turn two while making a pass for second. Hayslett Racing then traveled to Liberty, KY for the Gobbler Classic on Nove. 16 and 17. Hayslett started the weekend with a win in the Jr 1 Clone class the first night. On the second night, he would qualify fastest in both Jr 1 Clone and Jr 2 classes. Hayslett finished fourth after leading all but the last three laps in the Jr 2. He would get a DNF (did

Hayslett would finish fourth in the Jr 1 class and third in Jr 1 Clone class on the first night. On the second night, he finished sixth in the Jr 1 class and fifth in the Jr 1 Clone class. Hayslett Racing would finish 2012 at The Rumble in Ft. Wayne, IN on December 28th and 29th. This was a big race weekend for all types of

racers, including Tony Stewart in the Midgets. Korbyn raced his Jr Sportsman Champ kart along with twelve other drivers. The first night of racing Hayslett started fourth. He spun out making a pass for second with only several laps to go. He would come back from twelve to finish fifth. The second night he would start fourth in the feature again but this time battling back and forth with another driver for first. He lead that last several laps only to come out

of turn four a little high allowing the other driver to drop down beside him. He would make a photo finish for second place. Hayslett will start his 2013 season at the first Young Guns Race on March 2nd at the Columbus Fairgrounds. He will be running the Jr Sportsman Champ class for the Young Guns Points Series and four classes (Jr 1, Jr 1 Pro, Jr Sportsman Champ, and Jr 1 Clone) in the Burris Thunder Tour Point Series this year. Hayslett Racing will also have two karts at the Miami Valley Centre Mall March 8th-10th for the 10th Annual Race Cars & Future Stars Expo.

Hayslett would like to thank X-Caliber Racing Engines, Alley Cut Racing Tires, The Wizard (Randy Orth), his dad (Shane), his uncle (Jason Brumbaugh), grandparents and family for all their support.

of what Edison hopes to be many endeavors used to excite the youth about baseball. “We, as a team, want to share our love of baseball with the players of tomorrow,” said Coach Martinez. “I am very proud of Edison's players, it’s not often you can get a group of young gentlemen who are willing to wake up at 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning, sacrifice an entire day, to teach kids about the sport they love.” Fans will have the chance to catch the Edison Baseball Team in action at a double header versus Ohio State’s Club Baseball Team on March 2, 2013 at home at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. For the complete upcoming season schedule visit

to get a historic win. “Definitely,” she said. “That (her scoring all the points) wasn’t going to work for an entire game.” Rutledge got her first points early in the second half. That seemed to give her a different energy level and the entire team seemed to feed off the pressure defense which was giving the Irish fits and leading to points in transition. “I didn’t show them that defense much in the first half,” Hans said. “Maybe once or twice — because I didn’t want them to be able to adjust. The problem in the first half is the (Kellie) O’Connor girl is

their second best scorer after (Paige) Lewis and we were giving her good looks. She is a good shot and you can’t do that.” A basket by Mollette tied the game at 26 late in the third quarter. But, the Irish seemed to have righted the ship, opening a 31-26 lead. But, when Lewis picked up her fourth foul in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter and went to the bench for good with 5:24 remaining everything changed. “We knew they were going to struggle against our full-court pressure with her out,” Hans said. “And that’s what happened.”

Rutledge and Mollette combined for 19 second half points, with Rutledge netting 11 and Mollette adding eight. Madison Tebics and Trelissa Lavy added six each. “You know, Trelissa is probably our best athlete,” Hans said. “She just needs to figure out how to harness that on the basketball floor.” O’Connor led the Irish with 12 and Lewis scored 11. Now, the Lady Indians face a daunting challenge against state-ranked Tri-

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel you need to be yourself today — to be who you really are. Romantic relationships will be emotional. It’s a fun day. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might want to cocoon at home today. Youthful memories could be bubbling to the surface of your mind, and you need time to cogitate. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) When talking to others today, you want to speak at a “gut” level of communication. You don’t want superficial chitchat. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might identify with your possessions more than usual, which is why you might not want to lend something. It’s a good day to clean and maintain your stuff. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you feel more emotional than usual. But you’re also inclined to attract some good luck. Yay! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You feel like hiding or withdrawing a bit today. It’s not that you’re antisocial, you just want some privacy. (We all have days like this.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You feel more protective about your friends today. Naturally, you’ll be supportive, but you also might feel jealous if they pay more attention to someone else. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your reputation and your career are important to you today. You want to be noticed, and you want to get respect. It’s a good day for all kinds of public relations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You have a strong urge today to break away from your daily routine. That’s because you want a little adventure, and you also want to learn something new. Don’t be afraid to shake it up a little. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a poor day to make important decisions about inheritances and shared property, because you feel rather possessive about things. You’re just not in the mood to share. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your focus today is on personal relationships and partnerships. Conflicts with others definitely will be more emotional. Guard against knee-jerk reactions to what others say. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You want to tidy up your life and even do something that will improve your health. It’s like a tiny impulse to turn over a new leaf, even if it lasts only a day. YOU BORN TODAY You are a downto-earth realist who has the respect of others. You do your homework before you speak. You often end up in a position of leadership even if you don’t seek it. You want a solid home, but you don’t indulge in extravagance. A major change might take place in the year ahead, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: John Sandford (John Roswell Camp), novelist; Dakota Fanning, actress; Peter Fonda, actor. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.
