Temple more than one shooter. Jatin Der Mangat, 38, of Racine, said his uncle Satwant Singh Kaleka, the temple’s president, was one of those shot. Mangat didn’t know how serious Kaleka’s injuries were. “This is nerve-racking. No one really knows what’s going on. Nothing like this has ever happened before,” Mangat said. Later, when he learned of the deaths, he said, “It was like the heart just sat down. This shouldn’t happen anywhere.” Oak Creek Police John Edwards said officers called to the scene were tending a victim when the suspect ambushed one officer and shot him multiple times. The suspect then shot at another officer, who fired back and killed him. Earlier, police had said the officer who was shot killed the suspected shooter. Tactical units went through the building and found four people dead inside the temple and two outside, in addition to the shooter. Two others were wounded along with the police officer, Edwards said. All three were being

treated at an area trauma center. Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt, who was helping in the investigation, said the police officer had surgery and is expected to survive. Wentlandt did not identify the suspect or say what might have motivated the shootings. Family members identified some victims. Sukhwindar Nagr, of Racine, said he called his brother-in-law’s phone and a priest at the temple answered and told him that his brother-in-law had been shot, along with three priests. The priest also said women and children were hiding in temple closets, Nagr said. Devendar Nagra, 48, of Mount Pleasant, said his sister was in the temple preparing a meal when the shooting started. He said he spoke with her and she es-

caped injury by hiding in the kitchen, but a priest told him that his brother-inlaw, the temple’s caretaker, had been shot in the leg. Nagra’s spoke to his sister as she was evacuated from the temple to a nearby bowling alley. LeRon Bridges, 16, of Oak Creek, works at the bowling alley and said he was in a supply closet when he heard four gunshots. He looked outside, saw police coming and

went to get his boss. “There were more and more police showing up,” he said. “They all pulled out their assault rifles and ran toward the building.” Bridges said police brought people evacuated from the temple to the bowling alley in two armored trucks. At one point, about 50 to 60 people were at the bowling alley, including police officers questioning those from the temple

and paramedics treating their wounds, he said. “They were just hysterical,” Bridges said. “There were kids.

similar to humans. Voight said flu outbreaks are more likely this year due to the drought-like conditions and the heat. “People can give it to the animal, so if you are sick, wait at least 24 hours after the fever breaks before going out in public places like the fair,” Voight said. Voight said he and other fair officials met with the fair’s veterinarian last week about extra precautions. Voight said the animal pens will be disinfected before and after the animals arrive and animals will be checked twice a day for signs of the illness. “The veterinarian will check all the animals as they arrive and in the morning and evening of the fair as well,” Voight said. Hand sanitizers have been available at the animal barns for several years and Voight urges people to use the hand sanitizer stations diligently this year. “People need to use common sense and good practices they should do anyway,” he said.

swine and can be directly transmitted from swine to people and from people to swine in the same way that all viruses can be transmitted between people. When humans are in close proximity to infected pigs, such as in barns and livestock exhibits at fairs, movement of these viruses can occur back and forth between humans and animals. Influenza viruses cannot be transmitted by eating pork. Whether it’s preventing the flu or E. coli, it’s very important to clean your hands frequently at the fair. Fairgoers should always wash hands with soap and water after petting or touching any animal. Never eat, drink or put anything in your mouth in animal areas. While washing your hands is the best way to stay healthy, hand sanitizer is a good alternative. “I’m sure you will see hand sanitizer stations around the animal barns. I hope folks take a few seconds to wash or use hand sanitizer after they are done with the animals. It is critically important. I want people to have fun at the fair but stay healthy too,” Cook said.

at fairs in Indiana and Ohio have raised new concerns over swine flu. At least 10 human cases of H3N2 flu have been reported at the Butler County fair. All of the flu cases have been linked to direct contact with pigs at the fair. Miami County Health Commissioner Chris Cook encourages people to practice good hand hygiene at the Miami County Fair this year. “It’s the same advice that you heard from your parents growing up – wash your hands after being around any type of animal,” Cook said. “Animals carry germs and if you don’t wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after being around them, those germs can make you sick.” Cook said he isn’t surprised that cases of influenza are showing up at fairs. “We have always known that close contact with pigs or other animals increases your chance for getting sick. After the H1N1 flu pandemic of 2009 we all have a heightened awareness about the flu Hand hygiene is – especially when it passes from animals to people.” the key Influenza viruses such as Recent cases of influenza H3N2 are not unusual in

Office, a letter from Conley Nelson, president of the National Pork Board, was sent to parents and swine exhibitors about the heightened potential of an outbreak and steps to prevent illness to both people and pigs. “As the 2012 state fair season is upon us, everyone needs to take steps to ensure that show pigs stay healthy,” the letter states. “Influenza or ‘flu” occasionally can be transmitted from people to pigs and pig to people.” The letter urges those with flulike symptoms to not attend fairs for seven days or until one has been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication. Also, be on the lookout for flu symptoms in pigs and to contact a local vet before bringing the animal to the fair. The letter also reminds exhibitors to disinfect all equipment such as show boxes, feed pans and trailers when returning home from the fair. For more information, visit

Alpacas are, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful animals that roam our planet earth. Just the fact that alpacas come in 22 different colors makes them unique, but add to that their gentle nature, tranquil temperament, luxurious fiber, and gentle, calming humming sounds and you have an animal that no human can resist hugging. The natural habitat of the alpaca is the high Andes of South America, but since 1984 they have also flourished on farms throughout the United States because they are so adaptable. There are two different kinds of alpacas in the United States – the suri alpaca which has fiber that appears to be in the form of dreadlocks and is very silky, and the huacaya (pronounced waki-a) alpaca which has very colorful fiber that is extremely fine and gives the alpaca a woolly and round appearance. Alpacas prefer outdoors to being cooped up in a barn so a three-sided shed is perfect and an enclosed barn for birthing. They eat very little food each day, usually as much as a large dog.

They eat grass, good quality grass hays, and a special alpaca crumble. They need hay and/or grass for the fiber it contains, and an abundant supply of fresh, clean water. Alpacas should have annual inoculations and de-worm medication just as a dog or cat would.

acteristics desirable for breeding. suri – A type of alpaca with tightlywound fiber that looks like dreadlocks. weanling – A weaned alpaca, younger than 1 year. yearling – An alpaca between 1 and 2 years old.

Fleece The hair of the alpaca is called 'fleece' or 'fiber' rather than 'fur' or 'wool.' Alpaca fleece has 22 natural shades ranging from black to silver and rose gray and white, from mahogany brown to light fawn and champagne. Alpacas can be bred for specific color. There are two types of alpacas, classified according to their fiber type: * Huacaya ('wah-KI-yah') — dense, crimped, wooly, waterresistant fleece. About 90% of all alpacas in the North America are "teddy-bear" huacayas. * Suri ('SUR-ree') — very fine and lustrous fiber which grows parallel to the body in long, separate locks. Only 10% of the alpaca population in the US are suris. Unlike the llama, the fiber of the alpaca can be used for clothing. Alpaca fiber is softer than cashmere or angora, and warmer and lighter weight than wool, without the prickle-factor that some wool has. Since alpaca fleece has no lanolin, it is easier to process and is hypoallergenic. Alpacas are sheared annually, usually in the spring. The fiber may be sold and processed into rovings, spun into yarn, knitted or woven into fine fabrics. Each step adds more value to the product.

and that lies along the ocean is called a beach. Many beaches are made of sand, much like the sand in a sandbox. Others are made of pebbles or rocks. People all over the world visit the beach to play in the sand and swim in the ocean.

When you walk along the beach, you can’t help but notice the seashells that have washed up on the sand. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. • Plan a Show and Shell day for your class. Take turns showing off your shell collections. Have someone bring a conch (pronounced konk) shell and listen to the ocean inside.

The beaches along the United States are popular vacation spots. People travel from all over the world to visit beaches in Florida, California, Hawaii, and other coastal states. • Pretend you are going on a trip to the beach. First, pick a character from your newspaper’s comic strips to go with you. Then look through your newspaper’s advertisements and make a list of things you and your friend would take along. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

The seashells you see on the beach were once the homes of living animals. As these animals grow, they leave their shells behind and make new ones.

• Now, cut out your newspaper’s weather map and paste it in the space below. Draw a line from the state in which you live to the nearest ocean state. How many states would you have to travel through to get to the beach?

• Unscramble the words below to learn the names of animals that live in shells.

_________ brac _________ laisn _________ yersto _________ loplsac

(Answers: crab, snail, oyster, scallop)

• Now, make your own word scramble. Cut out letters in the newspaper that spell five ocean words found on this page. Paste the letters onto construction paper and cut them out. Mix up the letters in each word and ask a friend to try to unscramble them.

The rare and exotic alpaca is a creature of antiquity that is rapidly gaining popularity around the world. Highly prized for their luxurious coats, the alpaca has been considered a treasure of the Andes Mountains for

more than 6,000 years. Alpacas are New World camelids and look like small llamas or longnecked camels with no humps, especially when recently sheared. They have shaggy necks and camel-like faces with thick lips, pronounced noses, and long ears. Their large, expressive eyes seem to exhibit both

wisdom and childlike curiousity. Easily domesticated, alpacas are friendly, gentle and curious. Alpacas were exported from Peru in the mid-1980s and have become a premier livestock in North America and abroad. In the United States, the national Alpaca Registry (ARI) was formed to ensure breed purity and

high standards. Importation from South America is now closed. Each alpaca born in the US is blood-typed before registering. This practice helps keep our North American standards high, our animals healthy, and our breeding practices more focused on growing the best alpaca fiber in the world.

Embracing health care overhaul

Serving Piqua since 1883

“This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalms 118:24 AKJV)

Guest Column

Are you walking the walk? uring my preparation to become a teacher of young children, a wise professor gave some sage advice. “To be a successful early childhood educator,” she said, “you have to live honestly. You have to look yourself in the mirror each day and ask yourself if you are not only talking the talk but walking the walk.” She warned, “A young child can spot a hypocritical phony a mile away.” I have tried to live up to that standard during my life both as a professional and as a person. While people have disagreed with me at times through the years over my ways, means, and beliefs, they nevertheless have qualified me as true to my word. So I suppose that is why nothing gets my temper up more than those folks who shake angry left fists at our “evil government,” insist it does nothing to help them, and wish it would just stay out their lives…. all the while taking money from it with their right hand if doing so serves their needs or purposes. Witness lately the Republican Super-Pac sponsored and thinly veiled “public service announcements” about President Obama’s comments that society at large plays a role in the success of its citizens. Rightwingers have cherry-picked words and invented phrases to imply the president said government is solely responsible for people’s sucGARY OGG cess. Columnist Case in point is a recent Romney attack ad featuring the owner of Sollman Electric in Sidney. In it, Mr.Sollman complains about these recent comments by President Obama regarding how government is instrumental in helping many businesses get started and succeed over time. Apparently Mr. Sollman disagrees with this and in the ad expresses his anger, implying government has had nothing to do with the initial or continued success of his company. Sollman Electric was paid $1.6 million dollars as the electrical contractor for the Miami East School district’s building project. Apparently Mr.Sollman had no problems taking these tax dollars from a public school, which is an extension of local, state and federal governments. As a resident of the district, some of my tax dollars ended up in his pocket and now he complains about it? Mr. Sollman’s company benefits from the public roads that he, his workers, and his suppliers drive on to get to job sites. We call them “freeways” instead of toll roads for a reason — government paid for them. His workers were educated for free by the public. And I bet he sleeps at night with some comfort knowing his community’s police and firefighters protect his workplace. And yes, I understand that he pays taxes for these services as we all have together…for the public good. But personally I am disgusted with those who hypocritically complain about government while making profits from it. In addition to the Miami East project, Mr.Sollman earned millions more on other school and government projects around the Dayton area. I challenge him to take a principled stand and accept no more contracts paid with government funds, grants or tax dollars. Then there is the report that a consortium of businessmen in the Dayton area want to form a group to support tech start-ups by putting together a $6 million fund and are asking for half of it to come from state government in the form of development grants. Is this so a batch of new business owners can carp government played no role in their success? A friend (who works for a private business whose work comes largely from government contracts) just sent me a picture of the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk. Superimposed was President Obama shaking a finger at them saying, “You didn’t build that.” Orville and Wilbur did build their first airplane with profits from their bicycle shop. But as any Dayton resident who reads history should know, they nearly went bust trying to market their machine in Europe. Their first contract was with the United States Army, a governmental agency. Their invention made them famous but our government made them successful. So CEOs and business owners both large and small should ponder complaining about government while asking for tax abatements to start and/or expand their enterprises, or for state, local, or federal entities to pay for infrastructure improvements in and around their places to boost what they do and fatten their bottom lines. As the saying goes, don’t bite the hand that feeds you. And isn’t it a wonder that a child can spot a phony, but so many adults cannot.

THE FIRST AMENDMENT Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama, emboldened by the Supreme Court’s affirmation of his health care overhaul, is now embracing the law while campaigning for re-election, just as Republican rival Mitt Romney steps back from it. Obama sees a second chance to sell voters on the issue despite deep skepticism about it from many people. Romney is avoiding answering hard questions about how he would tackle health care, and thus missing the chance to energize voters who oppose the law. Democrats say the president always planned to stress health care if the court upheld the law. A month after the ruling, he and his team are focused on promoting individual parts of the law that have proved more popular than the sum. The campaign is targeting its efforts on important groups of voters, including women and Hispanics, who, Obama aides say, will benefit greatly once the law takes full effect. Before the decision, Obama did mention the law in campaign events. But the case he made to voters was hardly vigorous, especially considering the amount of time he dedicated to overhaul during his first year in year in office. The primary focus of his campaign speeches remains the economy, the race’s dominant issue. But the Supreme Court’s favorable ruling appears to have freed Obama to speak about the health law more passionately and emphatically than before the case was decided. His campaign also is running a television advertisement in eight of the most contested states that criticizes Romney for opposing mandatory health insurance coverage for contraception; that provision is in Obama’s overhaul.A health care-focused Spanish-language ad is running in Nevada, Colorado and Florida.

Son enjoying free ride has little reason to get up and go

Advice BRADFORD, MASS. DEAR SECOND STRING: Being told we are at the top of the “B” list makes us feel really wanted, doesn’t it? If people would take just a moment to consider how their words and deeds affect others, what a kinder, gentler world this would be. P.S. For the record: People who will not be invited to the wedding should not be asked to attend a bridal shower. DEAR ABBY: My divorced daughter stretched her food budget to “surprise” me with my favorite double cheese pizza with black olive topping. After everyone had eaten, I eyed the leftovers and decided to help out by gorging on the extra slices. My subsequent gallstone attack did not hurt as much as my oldest granddaughter’s query: “Grandpa, why did you force yourself to finish the pizza? Mommy promised us it would be our snack tomorrow.” Gluttonous guests — and that includes me — should not assume that “leftovers” are fair game. The hostess may have plans for them. — S.G. IN LAGUNA WOODS DEAR S.G.: How true. Wisdom — and good manners — dictate that nothing should be taken from the host’s kitchen without permission.

In this Wednesday, Aug. 1 photo, preparations are ongoing for the opening of the Indiana State Fair at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, in Indianapolis. The Indiana State Fair opens Friday with many changes after last year’s deadly stage collapse and hopes of promoting healing as organizers try to move beyond the shadow of the collapse. But there will be many changes — no concerts at the grandstand, higher ticket prices, paid parking that once was free. Fair officials say there are new offerings too, including more concerts on a newly regulated free stage. CHARLES WILSON Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Grief over a deadly stage collapse gave way to excitement over animal exhibits and deep-fried bubblegum Friday as thousands of people poured into an Indiana State Fair trying to bounce back from its most trying year. Visitors bustled from rides to food stands, with only a few pausing to read the seven names inscribed on a plaque that serves as a memorial to those killed last August while waiting for the country duo Sugarland to perform. The strong early attendance was a good sign for fair officials who hope this year’s event will help heal emotions and put the fair back on sound financial footing. Revenue and attendance plummeted last year after the stage collapse, and many questioned whether the event often likened to a family reunion would ever be the same. Deanna Phipps, 35, of Kokomo, Ind., went to the fair with her husband, Les, to watch their 14-year-old daughter march in the Kokomo High School color guard. She stopped at the memorial to the victims but clearly was ready to move on. “I think they did the best they could,” Phipps said of fair officials. “You would never think that (such an accident) would happen.” The Aug. 31, 2011, collapse occurred

Famous hand

Odd things sometimes occur during the bidding - even in world championships. Consider this deal from a match between the United States and Thailand. With a U.S. pair NorthSouth, the bidding went as shown. Certainly a majority of players would open the South hand with one club, but the American South in this case elected to pass his aceless 12-point hand. But something went

drastically wrong on the next round when North passed South’s jump-shift response in clubs. South obviously thought that three clubs was forcing, but the bidding ended abruptly when North decided that his skimpy 12point hand couldn’t possibly produce a game opposite a partner who had previously passed. South made four clubs, scoring 130 points, but this was nothing to cheer about since four hearts (worth 620 points) could not be defeated. However, not to be outdone, the Thai NorthSouth pair did even worse

That means huge crowds of people — and the money they’d typically spend at the fair — may never make it to the fairgrounds. Fair organizers hope to offset that impact by promoting discounted tickets and offering concertgoers who attend the downtown shows free admission on any day of the 17-day fair. Officials also are increasing the number of free shows on a permanent stage, where acts like REO Speedwagon and MC Hammer will perform. The grandstand will offer more thrillbased entertainment, like motorcycle races, tractor pulls and monster truck rallies. Cindy Hoye, executive director of the Indiana State Fair Commission, described this year’s even as one of “healing,” but she also said the victims of the collapse won’t be forgotten. A moment of silence is planned for 8:46 p.m. Aug. 13, the anniversary of the collapse. Amusement rides, games and concession stands will come to a halt, perhaps for as long as five minutes. Ashley Gregory, 21, of Danville, Ind., who was in the grandstand at last year’s Sugarland concert but wasn’t injured, said the fair “feels different” this year but she couldn’t stay away. “I love the state fair. I’ll always come back to the support the fair,” said Gregory, who paused to reflect by the plaque honoring those killed.

when high winds sent stage rigging plunging onto fans awaiting the Sugarland concert. The deaths and dozens of injuries sparked months of investigations and lawsuits amid questions about why the show wasn’t canceled or postponed. Fair officials made big changes to their safety procedures and changed the organization’s management structure. Lawmakers passed a bill requiring state inspections of such temporary structures. Some fair visitors, however, said concertgoers shouldn’t have counted on officials to tell them when it wasn’t safe to stay. “People just need to use common sense,” said Verlena Jones, 82, of Monticello, Ind., who came to the fair with her husband John, 76. “If it looks like it’s going to storm, get the heck out of there.” But even fairgoers focused on moving forward will feel the impact of last year’s collapse. Ticket prices are up and a new parking fee has been implemented as officials try to make up the losses from last year, when they had to cancel several big concerts and close for a day. Attendance was down 8 percent from 2010, and the fair’s overall revenue fell from $11.9 million in 2010 to $8.38 million in 2011. This year’s headline concerts, which include performances by Barry Manilow, Train and Blake Shelton, have been moved to Bankers Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis.

DEAR ABBY: Please inform your readers not to invite people to bridal showers if they’re not invited to the wedding. I was invited to a shower and accidentally found out I wasn’t being invited to the wedding. At first I was upset, but imagine how mortified I felt when I was told that if some of the invited guests sent back a refusal, THEN I would be invited to the wedding. I would have preferred to have been told, “I’d love to have you, but we just can’t afford to invite all of the lovely people we would like.” I know this isn’t the first time you’ve mentioned something like this in your column, but it amazes me how insensitive people can be. — SECOND STRING,




DEAR FED UP: Vivian should draw the line at the front door. By tolerating her son’s disrespectful behavior she is doing him no favors. Unless he actively looks for a job, stops helping himself to her property and does something to repay her generosity (mowing the lawn and washing the dishes he uses would be a good start), she should stop “helping” him. What she’s doing is crippling her son, who may be in need of counseling.

Ind. fairgoers shake off shadow of stage collapse


DEAR ABBY: I need some advice about my girlfriend “Vivian’s” son. “Kirk” is 22 and very immature. I love Vivian with all my heart, and I get upset when Kirk verbally abuses her. I try not to say anything because I feel it’s not my place because he’s not MY son. Kirk hasn’t worked in two years. He walks into his mother’s house and takes whatever he wants — food, toothpaste, rolls of toilet paper, etc. He won’t help her around the house, mow the lawn or wash a dirty dish he has used. And he lives rent-free in one of the duplexes his mother bought for additional income. Vivian is a wonderful woman who is hard-working and self-supporting. She’s also tired of her son’s lack of motivation and how he takes her for granted. I know a mother doesn’t want to see her child go hungry, but where do you draw the line? — FED UP IN TEXAS

Tipp City manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tipp Talkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; published Collection of columns make up 5th book BY AMY MAXWELL Ohio Community Media TIPP CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tipp City resident Greg Enslen recently had his book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tipp Talk 2011,â&#x20AC;? published by Gypsy Publications located in Troy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tipp Talk 2011â&#x20AC;? is his fifth book, and the first of his work to be published by a publishing company. Enslen has self-published his previous four books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tipp Talkâ&#x20AC;? is one of two nonfiction books; his other works are fiction novels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tipp Talk 2011â&#x20AC;? is a compilation of Enslenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column that runs in the Tippecanoe Gazette and originated in the Weekly Record Herald. The collection recounts the local and regional challenges, events and activities in and around the town of Tipp

City. Upon publication by Gypsy Publications, Enslen added extra stories and photos to the piece and also included an index of people mentioned in the stories. G y p s y Publications is also in the ENSLEN process of publishing Enslenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ghost of Blackwood Lane.â&#x20AC;? It revolves around Greg, who had his memory erased upon his father testifying against the mafia in St. Louis and fleeing to Los Angeles. Gregâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory was supposed to be able to be restored by a

saying a phrase that would bring it back, but the only psychologist that knew the phrase was killed and his father canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember the phrase. So Greg ventures back to St. Louis to unlock the memories after he begins to have dreams of his past. Enslen shortened the original version that was self-published for the release of the book by Gypsy Publications by tightening the story and cutting some chapters.The book will be released to the public in October after Gypsy submits the novel to companies on the national level for review first. Since Gypsy was the one to approach Enslen about publication, Enslen said being sought out by a publisher has made him feel validated in his writing career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have someone be-

sides my mother telling me how good my writing is,â&#x20AC;? Enslen chuckled. Enslen feels the process of self-publishing is very different than being published by a publisher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels great to have the weight of a publishing company behind you, although you also hand over the control of the publishing process from yourself to the publisher and they call the shots of what happens and when,â&#x20AC;? he said. Enslen has been writing for the past 20 years, but feels he has tightened his focus within the last five years. Other projects over the years included Enslen owning and operating the video game pay-to-play business Big Robot Game CafĂŠ, which was located in Tipp City and closed in 2010. Enslen spends his days as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Momâ&#x20AC;? to his three children, Xander, 10, Annabelle, 8,

and Catherine, 2. His wife, Samantha, works full time at the corporate editing company she owns, Dragonfly Editorial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When all the kids are calm, happy, or asleep-then that is when I write,â&#x20AC;? Enslen said. He is currently working on two additional books for future release. One is a mystery set in Tipp City called â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Field of Red,â&#x20AC;? which may turn into a series centered around Frank Harper, a retired FBI agent. The second is an action-adventure, Tom Clancy-esque novel called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wildcat Mountain.â&#x20AC;? This would be the first in a trilogy about the race to solve the mystery of an entire 747 carrying the vice president and members of an international trade delegation that just disapperas.

Ft. Loramie postmaster wraps up 34-year career Wray enjoyed working with postal staff

BY TOM BARNETT Ohio Community Media FT. LORAMIE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Margaret â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pegâ&#x20AC;? Wray will end 34 years with the U.S. Postal Service when she retires today as Ft. Loramieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postmaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bittersweet experience,â&#x20AC;? she said of her retirement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had good employees who have made it a great 13 years here.â&#x20AC;? Wray, who has managed the local post office since 1999, is a native of Ft. Loramie and a Ft. Loramie High School graduate. She entered the postal service as a Sidney mail carrier, moving up the ladder there for 21 years. After delivering mail for five years, she was mail clerk for 12 years and the

customer service representative for three years at the Sidney Post Office. At Ft. Loramie, she replaced Joan Soloman as postmaster after Soloman retired. Wray had passed her Civil Service test shortly after high school, but waited six years to raise her children, Chad and Kelly, before looking for a postal job. She is the

daughter of Clarence and Ruth Ann Meyer, of Ft. Loramie. Peg and her husband, Charles, have two adult children, Chad (Brenda) Wray and Kelly (John) Holthaus, and take great pride in their seven grandchildren. Asked about plans for retirement, Wray said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll travel some â&#x20AC;&#x153;and spoil the grandkids.â&#x20AC;?

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, August 7, 2012 TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some people might be a bit prickly at work today, especially older or more experienced co-workers. Just accept this and move on. (You’ll become more efficient at your job from this day onward.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A celestial influence that has been causing transportation delays and confused communication is over as of today. Now you can breathe a sigh of relief. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Relations with parents and older relatives might be a bit stilted or cool today. Just accept this. The good news is that financial matters can get the green light now. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today retrograde Mercury goes direct in your sign. All these crazy, silly, goofy mistakes will hugely lessen. Communication with others will become more reliable. (Whew!) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Don’t be discouraged by financial matters today, because this is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon. Very soon the Sun will enter your sign and you will feel empowered! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today, because the Moon is opposite your sign. In particular, you will have to defer to those who are older, more experienced or in authority. (Oops.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You feel energized with plans for the future now. Take a serious look at your life direction in general to see if you are headed where you really want to go. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Glitches and delays to travel plans will now be a thing of the past. You can go forward with confidence in making plans for travel, publishing, higher education, medicine and the law. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Don’t be pushy in discussions with parents and authority figures today. Let sleeping dogs lie. Timing is everything. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Don’t be discouraged today. Things are always darkest before it gets pitch black. (Joking.) This feeling is just temporary. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might be disappointed in your fair share of something today. Don’t agree to anything. Wait a day or two to see how you might renegotiate. YOU BORN TODAY You’re clever, witty and have marvelous social skills. People just like you. However, you also have another side that is attracted to secrets and hidden information. This makes you a great researcher, especially into archaeology, anthropology, criminology or esoteric knowledge. Likewise, you are intrigued by the secrets of others. In your year ahead, your strongest focus will be on partnerships and close friendships. (c) 2012 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.

Piqua golfer Ben Gover had high hopes of defending his Echo Hills Club Championship over the weekend — he just had no idea it would be in recordsetting fashion. Gover had a club championship record 9-under par 63 Saturday and followed it up with a oneunder par 71 Sunday for a 10-shot victory over Brian Robbins and Brian Deal. Robbins won the a playoff with Deal for second, birdieing the first hole. “No, not at all,” Gover said about his expectations of a record round. “Before this, 66 was my lowest round out here and that was a couple of weeks ago.” And Gover, playing with Robbins and Doug Harter Saturday, had to wait longer than expected to get things started — there was a 30-minute lightning delay Saturday. “We were just getting ready to start when the horn blew,” Gover said. “I took it as a good thing — because we were at the clubhouse and not on the course when the delay started.” See GOVER/Page 16

CINCINNATI (AP) — Clint Hurdle decided to keep A.J. Burnett pitching on his regular day so he didn't miss the showdown with the Cincinnati Reds. The Pittsburgh Pirates had a day off Thursday that allowed Burnett to face the Reds and improve to 7-2 after a team loss. Burnett remained undefeated against the Reds this season and Starling Marte hit a tiebreaking two-run triple to help the Pittsburgh Pirates salvage the finale of their three-game series with a 6-2 win on Sunday. "I've never had an ace before," Hurdle said. "We have a guy with the experience A.J. brought with him. Neil Walker hit a two-run home run and All-Star center fielder Andrew McCutchen added a solo shot as Pittsburgh snapped Cincinnati's win streak at five and cut the Reds lead in the National League Central Division to 4 1-2 games. Burnett (14-3) allowed just one hit after the first inning and retired 18 straight batters before yielding two walks with two outs in the ninth. He allowed three hits and two runs with three walks and seven strikeouts in 8 2-3 innings to improve to 30 in three starts against the Reds this season. "After the second inning he was just rock solid. He got some quick outs," Hurdle said. Burnett shrugged off the stopper's tag. "I just want to win whatever it takes, if it's my day it's my responsibility." Joel Hanrahan got the final out for his 32nd save. A heavy rain began to fall in the top of the ninth and likely prevented Burnett from completing the game. "It was nothing I haven't faced before," Burnett said. "I probably should have called time but with three outs to go, I was trying to get through it real quick." See REDS/Page 15

Browns thin at linebacker Gocong done for season Mourning does not last long in the NFL, even when one of the most popular players on a team goes down with a severe injury. Browns outside linebacker Chris Gocong suffered a torn Achilles tendon during a goal-line drill Saturday morning at the team’s training complex in Berea and will miss the entire 2012 season. Surgery is scheduled for Monday. The injury is a major blow, especially if Scott Fujita’s NFL imposed three-game suspension for his alleged involvement in the Saints’ bounty program is upheld. Gocong and Fujita have been working as the starting outside linebackers in training camp. “Next guy up,” Coach Pat Shurmur said following the afternoon practice. “We’re disappointed he got hurt, but we’re not going to hang crepe paper here. It happens. Unfortunately, it happens. I’m very fond of Chris and the effort he puts into being a good football player. There’s a loss, but the challenge is for us to cover it up with the guys on this roster.” Fourth-year linebacker Kaluka Maiava and rookie James-Michael Johnson

are in line to replace the 28-year-old Gocong. Rookies Craig Robertson and L.J. Fort will also get more playing time. “He’s a great leader, and I know how hard he works,” Maiava said of Gocong. “He’s a positive guy on the field. The defense works better with him. “I’m hoping for the best. But if it is as bad as we think, then it’s the next guy up, and we’ve got to keep going and get a positive successful season this year.” Gocong was covering tight end Jordan Cameron when the injury occurred. As Gocong attempted to break up a pass from Brandon Weeden in the end zone, he appeared to twist awkwardly. Gocong fell to the ground slowly, took off his helmet and his right shoe. He squeezed the back of his ankle and then laid on the ground as trainers and doctors rushed over to help. Gocong could not put any weight on his right leg as he was helped onto the back of an equipment cart. About a dozen teammates gathered around him as trainers examined him before calling for the cart. He was in obvious pain as the cart headed to the fieldhouse.

Gordon takes full advantage Driver wins at Pocono LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Jeff Gordon took advantage of an accident sparked by teammate Jimmie Johnson and a touch of timely rain at Pocono Raceway to win his first race of the season. Gordon earned his 86th career victory Sunday, winning for the first time since September 2011 at Atlanta Motor Speedway to thrust himself into wild-card contention in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Johnson inadvertently gave his Hendrick Motorsports teammate the help he needed. Johnson got loose off a restart and knocked Matt Kenseth into the wall. Kenseth slid down the track and took out Denny Hamlin. With an unexpected opening, Gordon zoomed to the lead in the No. 24 Chevrolet. "When I saw the opening to get inside, I was taking it," Gordon said. It couldn't have come at a better time. The skies opened and cars were ordered off the track. The race was called moments later with 98 of the 160 scheduled laps completed. Gordon, who turned 41 on Saturday, had been hit by a string of bad breaks this season and knew he needed wins over the final six races before the Chase cutoff to have any shot at running for a fifth championship during the 10race playoffs. Gordon moved into the second wild-card spot that would guarantee him a berth in the field. Gordon, who also won a rain-shortened race at Pocono in 2007, passed Bill Eilliott for most career wins at Pocono with six. Kasey Kahne was second, followed by Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart. Kahne refused to rule out another Gordon championship run if he stays in the Chase field. "Absolutely. It's Jeff

Gordon. Look what he's done," Kahne said. With the storms coming — spotters told their drivers the heavy rain was coming — Johnson was in prime position to follow last week's win in Indy with another trip to Victory Lane. Something, though, went wrong with Johnson's car and he contact with made Kenseth. Johnson dropped back but suffered no real damage. Kenseth touched the wall and slid down the track. Hamlin had nowhere to go except right into the side of the No. 17. Hamlin was taken to the infield care center and complained of discomfort around his abdomen but was released. Gordon, who was sixth in the restart necessitated by Kurt Busch's wreck, took off and took the lead. "I know that you don't want to win them quite like this, but we've earned it because of all the things that we've done this year," Gordon said. Johnson blamed a right rear flat tire for sparking the accidents. "I shouldn't feel bad about that, but not much you can do with a rightrear flat," he said. Then the downpour came. The scheduled 400mile race had already been postponed about two hours because of rain. "For all the things that have gone wrong for us this year, I still can't believe what just happened," Gordon said. "But, I think this is the one that makes up for all the ones that have gotten away. I'm just so proud of this team." While Kahne and Gordon had a great race for Hendrick, Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. had ones to forget. Earnhardt was lucky to maintain his overall points lead after he was forced to the garage on lap 51 because of a busted transmission. He later returned to the track and finished 32nd.

Bradley wins stunner at Firestone Furyk doubles final hole to lose AKRON (AP) — Keegan Bradley only wanted a chance to get into a playoff Sunday at Firestone. All it took was a clutch par, along with a stunning collapse by Jim Furyk, for Bradley to win the Bridgestone Invitational and wrap up a spot on the Ryder Cup team. Bradley closed with a 6under 64, and the final stroke was the most important — a 15-foot putt to save par from a plugged lie in the bunker. Furyk, who led for 71 holes and looked solid throughout the final round, chopped up the 18th hole for a double bogey to throw away a chance at his first win since the 2010 Tour Championship. He missed the green from the fairway. His chip with one foot in the sand barely cleared the bunker and stayed in the thick collar. He hit a weak chip to 5 feet, and his bogey putt never had a chance. Furyk dropped his putter when the ball left his blade. He went from what appeared to be a certain win to a 69 and a tie for second with Steve Stricker, who made four birdies on his last five holes for a 64. "I've got no one to blame but myself," Furyk said. "There's no way I should have made more than 5." Bradley won for the first time since last year in PGA Championship, and now goes to Kiawah Island to defend his title with a lot more confidence. "I still can't believe it," he said. Bradley was four shots behind going into the final round, and was six shots


Keegan Bradley reacts to making a putt Sunday at Firestone Country Club at the Bridgestone Invitational. back when Furyk opened with three straight birdies. Bradley kept pecking away at the lead, holing a 25-foot birdie putt on the seventh, scrambling for par on the 12th, and starting the back nine with a pair of birdies. Furyk finally answered with an 18-foot birdie putt on the 16th, only for Bradley to follow him in for birdie from 12 feet. Furyk had a one-shot lead playing the 18th, and got one big break when he pulled his tee shot into the trees and it ricocheted out into the fairway. That's where it all started to go wrong. He went long of the green and the ball hopped out of the bunker and into the thick collar, forcing

him to put his left foot into the sand. He flubbed the chip, just over the bunker into more thick grass, and his chip was a clunker, rolling out to just over 5 feet. Bradley also went long and plugged into the sand, and he blasted out to 15 feet behind the hole. The dynamics changed so suddenly. There was a chance for a four-way playoff if and Furyk Bradley missed, and Louis Oosthuizen made his birdie putt form just outside 12 feet. Bradley, whose putting carried him to a comeback in the PGA Championship, hit a pure stroke for the par to finish on 13under 267. Then, it was up to Furyk to force the play-

off. "I hit my worst putt of the week," Furyk said. Bradley has three wins in two years on the PGA Tour, including a major and a World Golf Championship. He is only the 11th player to have won a major and a WGC. Stricker found his putting stroke at Firestone — not that it was ever deep in hiding — and showed that down the stretch with his closing stretch of birdies. It was an important performance for Stricker, who moved up three spots to No. 10 in the Ryder Cup standings. Furyk is No. 11, followed by Rickie Fowler at No. 12. Bradley moved to No. 4, and bumped out Hunter Mahan from the top eight

for automatic spots after the PGA Championship next week. Oosthuizen closed with a 69 to finish alone in fourth. Justin Rose (67) and Rory McIlroy (68) were another shot behind. Tiger Woods played bogey-free for a 66, his lowest score since a 65 in the second round at Bay Hill at the end of March. He was never in the tournament, 11 shots behind going into the final round, though he picked up the tiniest of consolations. He now has back-to-back finishes in the top 10 on the PGA Tour for the first time in nearly three years. And he at least heads to Kiawah Island feeling good about his game. "I hit a lot of good shots

and never really sniffed making a bogey all day," said Woods, who played his final 23 holes without a bogey. "I feel very good about where I'm at. I'm excited about it." The nature of the course changed drastically with one-quarter inch of rain overnight, and a burst of showers that stopped play for nearly three hours Sunday morning. Shots to the green were spinning back instead of bouncing forward. Pars no longer were good enough. Furyk picked up on that quickly, and came out even stronger than he did on Saturday. He stuffed his approach into 4 feet for birdie on the first hole, came up just short of the green on the par-5 second for an easy birdie, and then holed a 10-foot birdie putt on the third hole. It still wasn't enough to shake Oosthuizen, who made a long birdie on the opening hole and missed a 12-foot eagle try on the second. The South African was in position to match Furyk's birdie-birdie-birdie start until he missed a 4-footer on the third. That was a sign of trouble to come. Oosthuizen missed another short putt on the fifth for par, and failed to save par on the ninth to fall four shots behind. He only caught up at the end. Furyk, meanwhile, dropped only one shot when he drove to the right into the trees on No. 6 and missed a 10-footer for par. He was rarely in jeopardy the rest of the way until he found himself in the middle of the fairway on the final hole, needing a par to win and watching someone else take home the $1.4 million first prize.

Reds Continued from page 13 Barmes. Homer Bailey (9-7) allowed nine hits and four runs with one walk and three strikeouts in 4 2-3 innings on Sunday. "Homer wasn't real sharp," Baker said. "Burnett was real sharp. He got into trouble early, but he got out of it and sailed along until the ninth. He's tough. He's rediscovered himself. He's not 14-3 for nothing." McCutchen led off the ninth against Logan Ondrusek by tying his singleseason career high with his 23rd homer of the season and first since July 17. "Considering it's been a while and I haven't been feeling that great, it felt good," McCutchen said. NOTES: Reds 2B Brandon Phillips missed his fifth straight start with a strained left calf. ... The Pirates finished 6-4 on their longest road trip of the season. They open their longest homestand Monday with a four games against Arizona, the first of 11 in 11 days in Pittsburgh. ... The Reds open a seven-game road trip in Milwaukee on Monday. They've won nine consecutive road games, the longest active streak in the National League and the team's longest since a 10-game run from July 27 Drew Stubbs is congratulated after his solo home run Sunday afternoon against Pittsburgh. through Aug. 13, 2005.

The Reds went into the game with 22 wins in their last 25 games and 15 of their last 16. They are still 16-4 since All-Star first baseman Joey Votto left the lineup with a torn meniscus in his left knee that required surgery. A pennant race is a new experience for most of the Pirates. Not Burnett. "I've been in October. This is nothing like October," Burnett said. Still the win prevented the Pirates from falling too far behind. The Reds badly wanted a sweep. "You get greedy," Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. "When you start winning every day, two out of three isn't good enough. We went 5-2 on the home stand, but you always want more. We're in a situation now where, hopefully, we get some guys back. Our guys have fought through some adversity." Jay Bruce doubled in the first, but Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead in the second on Walker's 12th homer of the season, a two-run shot that tied Walker's season high.

“Normally, you would feel like you were right in there with a score like that,” Deal said with a smile. “I played well. I knew on the 10th tee that Ben was 4-under par on the front nine. On 16, they told us he was eight under. So, I knew what he was doing. That (Gover’s round) was really impressive.” It could have been even lower. On the par-5 18th, Gover nearly reached the green in two, before settling for par. “I was thinking about 62 — that would have been nice,” he said. “The chip came off my clubface a little soft and I had about 25 feet.” He was able to two-putt, holing a two-foot putt for the 63. “I have never been so nervous over a putt,” Gover said with a laugh. “I had a chance at 62, but 63 is still really good.” As he waited out a twohour delay Sunday morning, Gover admitted he was hoping to get the second round in. “I want to see how a follow up the 63,” he said. “So, I hope we play.” He got his wish and was solid again, with four birdies against one bogey and a double for 71 and a 10-under par total for 36 holes. “I shot 71 and won by

10 shots,” Gover said. “So, I was pretty happy with that.” Deal and Robbins both finished at even par 144 for the tournament, before Robbins’ birdie on the par4 first hole in sudden death gave him second. Jeff Jennings (151) and Ryan Pearson (157) rounded out the top five. ■ Steve Hamant used rounds of 76 and 79 for a 155 totals and a threeshot victory in the Seniors flight. Marty Jackson was second after rounds of 80 and 78. ■ Jaydee Denson won the first flight, rallying from a four-shot deficit for a one-shot victory over Rob Kiser with rounds of 84 and 85. The two were tied going to the final hole, before MIKE ULLERY/CALL Kiser took four shots from Brian Robbins watches a putt at Echo Hills Saturday morning. the fringe.

Once he got his round underway, the left-hander started in rather routine fashion, parring the first three holes. But, then the floodgates opened. He birdie four of the next six holes — settling for par at seven and eight — to finish the front nine with a four-under par 32. “Once I made the first one (birdie), that just got things going,” Gover said. “I was thinking, ‘I had 32 on the front. If I can shoot even on the back, that would be 68 and in good position.” But, after parring the first three holes on the back nine, Gover caught fire again — a run of four straight birdies started on difficult par-4 13th. Gover, who missed just two greens all round, was left and above the treacherous green, before chipping in. “That was pretty nice to get that one,” Gover said. For Robbins, it was a mixed reaction. “It was pretty impressive,” Robbins said. “At the same time, it is a little bit frustrating. When he chipped in on 13, I was three under and only two behind.” Gover birdied the shortpar 4s on 14 and 16, while sandwiching a birdie on the par-3 15th after hitting an 8-iron to 3-feet. “You kind of expect him to birdie 14 and 16 if he hits a good drive,” Robbins said. “The birdie on 15 was a pretty good one.” Gover agreed. “That was a big one,” he said. “That got me to eight under and I birdied 16 to get to nine under. I started to think about it. Both Doug (Harter) and Brian (Robbins) were telling me to keep it going.” Deal playing in the group in front of Gover, shot a 3-under par 69.
