Judges named for annual cook-off

14 DAYS til

Sponsored By: Dorothy Love, Fair Haven & Pavilion

Downtown Sidney

Three top food experts have been named as judges of the I-75 Newspaper Group’s 2012 Harvest Holiday Cook-Off. Kim Frederick, of Sidney, James Patten, of Piqua, and James Wagner, of Troy, will select three semi-finalists in each of nine categories from among recipes that are being sent in by readers of the Sidney Daily News, the Piqua Daily Call and the Troy Daily News. On Cook-Off Day, Oct. 13, the semi-finalists will compete for category prizes and one will be named the grand prize winner. Frederick is a cook in the culinary department of Dorothy Love Retirement Community. She has been a cook for 22 years and began her career at Yaeger’s Bakery in Sidney. “I do most of the desserts (at Dorothy Love),” she said. “We do a lot of homemade stuff.” Her favorite dish to make at home is “something that’s easy,” she laughed, “like a casserole. I do a lot of pot-cooking, goulashes.” Patten is the kitchen manager of the Bridge, a restaurant in downtown Sidney. He, too, has been in the food industry for 22 years. “I’m self-taught,” he said. “I worked See JUDGES/Page 9A




Texting law is legislative fail Local law enforcement officials say lawmakers missed the mark BY TOM BARNETT Law enforcement agencies won’t be ticketing motorists under Ohio’s new statewide ban on texting and driving for six months, but area police, the sheriff ’s office and state troopers have words for legislators. “My comments may sound harsh,” Sidney Police Chief Kevin Gessler said, “but this is not the first time that a state legislative body created



a law that doesn’t solve the problem presented them. “Bottom line,” Gessler continued, “is that texting while driving, dialing a phone while

driving, or any activity that distracts the driver is dangerous. “First of all, for adults the law can only be enforced as a secondary offense. The officer must have an initial violation in order to stop a motorist and then, and only then, could the driver be cited for texting while driving. “Enforcing this law as a proactive measure to reduce motor vehicle accidents is going to be a challenge for officers,” Gessler told a reporter.


SDN photo featured by AP A photo Sidney Daily News photographer Luke Gronneberg snapped during Lockington’s Canal Festival Parade Aug. 25, has been included in the Associated Press weekly Internet “Around the World in 50 photos” slide show. The photo shows parade participants Lonnie Sowers and 1- year-old Lonnie Sowders, both of Sidney, marching with dad wearing a bone and fang-encrusted grotesque skull mask. Sowers told Gronneberg he was marching to promote the Haunted Woods, a popular Halloween-time fright experience in Sidney.

“We are going to first have to witness a primary violation, and then if we are able to see an individual texting on a phone, we can cite. “This is about as ridiculous as our seat belt law,” the chief continued. “No matter if you are an adult or juvenile dialing a number or texting to another is a distraction and drivers that are distracted cause motor vehicle accidents.” (For drivers younger than See LAW/Page 3A

IN THIS Aug. 26 file photo, Annaleigh Sowders, 1, marches with her dad Lonnie Sowders, both of Sidney, in the Lockington Canal Festival parade. Sowders was promoting the Sidney Haunted Woods in the parade. The Sidney Haunted Woods runs from Sept. 14 through Oct. 27 and starts at dark. Annaleigh is also the daughter of Kelly Sowders. This photo was selected by the Associated Press for its “Around the World in 50 Photos” weekly online feature.

A headline on Friday’s front page contained an error. Emerson Climate Technologies, with a production plant in Sidney, is celebrating the production of its 100 millionth Copeland Scroll-compressor. While the story reported this correctly, the headline stated 1 million instead of 100 million. The Daily News regrets the error.

LAW 18, the new law is a primary offense which can be subject to $150 tickets for the first offense and 60-day license suspensions. Repeat teen offenders can be fined $300 with a one-year license suspension). Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart says the new legislation is good as a safety issue going in the right direction. “Its weakness though, is that not everybody is under age 18; many older drivers are doing it. Why not all ages? “The legislature didn’t have the courage to do it right, Lenhart said. “And, it’s ironic that 17-yearolds can’t vote. The bottom line is it (the law) should affect all ages.

Rick Albers, commander of the Piqua District Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol, says. Texting or anything that takes young drivers’ eyes off the road definitely leads to crashes. “It’s a secondary offense for older drivers, but anything that targets distracted drivers of any age is good.” Albers did not offer comment on issues of enforcement of law shared by Chief Gessler and Sheriff Lenhart. The new measure does allow drivers to text and use their cell phones in case of an emergency and when the vehicle is stopped and off the road. Hands-free devices are allowed, but they can’t be manipulated while driving. Adults can still talk on the phone while driving, but juveniles can’t.

Teen washed through sewer Ohio records 60 West Nile virus cases in humans

BY ANN SANNER Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — An overflowing creek in a Cleveland suburb sent a 14-year-old boy on the ride of his life this week. Jeffrey LaPorta traveled more than a quarter of a mile through multiple storm sewer pipes, at times completely submerged water, before finding enough breathing room to await rescue. He was eventually pulled out of the sewer in less than an hour, with only scrapes and bruises. The teen was riding his bike with a friend on Tuesday through puddles created by the rising creek, which flows near a strip mall parking lot in Parma. He fell into the overflowing water just off the edge of the parking lot and was forced into a drain pipe — roughly 2 feet in diameter, authorities said. “The water was moving so quickly it sucked him into the drain,” said Turner, a Doug for the spokesman Parma Fire Department. “It sucked him in and pulled him probably 100 yards, full of water, where he couldn’t take his breath.” The pipe carried Jeffrey underneath the parking lot and into the suburb’s storm sewer. He was then shifted into pipes that grew increasingly larger, Turner said. “Now the same amount of water is flowing through there with a little bit bigger of an opening, so his head actually bobs above water a couple times.” The pipes sent Jeffrey under four lanes of traf-

At some point, the water became waistdeep, Turner said. “He’s able to grab ahold of something and stop and wedge himself in there,” Turner said. “But he’s traveled about 1,500 feet from where he initially started.” friend, Jeffrey’s Miguel Torres, said he didn’t see Jeffrey fall into the water because had his back turned. He turned around and noticed his bike in the creek. “I heard a splash,” Miguel, 13, said in an interview. “I ran over to the creek and started looking for him. … At first I just thought he was stuck underwater or something. I didn’t really think about.”

Miguel then got the attention of a city worker, who had just arrived at the parking lot to check out the flooding. The worker contacted authorities, and firefighters from a station across the street from the parking lot headed to the scene. “I didn’t know what to do at first,” Miguel said. “If that city official didn’t drive by, I don’t know what I would have done.” Responders teamed up the city worker and others who had knowledge of the sewer system. Firefighters then began searching for the boy downstream, uncovering at least six manholes and calling out Jeffrey’s name before they heard him respond. “One of the firefighters climbed down into the manhole, started flashing the light around and could see the kid, but he was quite a bit away,” Turner said. “He just said, ‘Hold on, we’re coming to get you.’” Jeffrey was pulled to safety and taken to a hospital, where he received six stitches on his

West Nile-carrying Culex mosquito, Pollock said. The mosquito prefers to breed in organically rich water sources, such as water in the process of evaporating from ditches and catch basins where leaves and other matter accumulate. “We knew early on that this was going to be a bad year,” she said. Health officials recommend that people use insect repellent or wear long sleeves and pants while outdoors, especially at dusk and dawn. They also advise eliminating mosquito breeding sites such as water-holding containers and other standing water. The decision on whether to spray for mosquitoes is left up to local areas, and Columbus Public Health in central Ohio’s Franklin County — where four human cases have been reported — increased its spraying to six days this week. The agency typically has sprayed three or four days a week, spokesman Jose Rodriguez said. The agency focuses on areas where mosquitoes caught in traps have tested positive for the virus. Columbus has found 110 pools of mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus this year, compared with 12 pools of positive mosquitoes in Columbus and nearby Worthington last year, said Luke Jacobs, a section chief with the city’s division of environmental health. County Hamilton Public Health in Cincinnati is not spraying, but monitors mosquito traps daily throughout the county, which has reported five human cases.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s confirmed number of West Nile virus cases has increased to 60, more than double the human cases documented just three weeks ago, state health officials said. Two people — a 76year-old man in southern Ohio’s Hamilton County and an 87-yearold man in Cuyahoga County in northeast Ohio — have died in what officials are calling one of the worst summers for the mosquitoborne virus in the state and across the nation, The Columbus Dispatch Friday. reported Statewide, 47 people have been hospitalized, with symptoms that began between July 10 and Aug. 28. Nationwide, 1,993 cases have been reported to federal health officials, an increase of 403 in a week, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly update. Deaths from the disease this year have hit 87, up from 66 reported a week earlier. One in five people who become infected with the virus will develop West Nile fever, according to the CDC. Symptoms include fever, headache, tiredness and body aches. As of Friday, 36 of Ohio’s 88 counties had confirmed West Nile cases in humans, mosquitoes or horses, Tessie Pollock, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Health, said Friday. Cuyahoga County had reported the most human cases of any county, with 21, Pollock said. Drought and heat in Ohio this year increased the prevalence of the

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s election chief is taking back an order that prohibited county officials from setting any hours during the final days of inperson, early voting. The moves comes Friday after a federal judge this week ordered Secretary of State Jon Husted to appear at a court hearing over the swing state’s early voting rules. Attorneys for President Barack Obama’s campaign have urged the judge to enforce his ruling that restores early voting for all voters during the three days before Election Day. The state is appealing the decision. Husted told local boards of election on Tuesday they were banned from setting hours that a court could later change. But he rescinded that directive on Friday. Husted also asked the judge Friday to hold off enforcing his ruling while it’s appealed.

No clean getaway for toilet thief WINDBER, Pa. (AP) — Police say a western Pennsylvania man’s toilet theft scam didn't end with a clean getaway. T h i r t y - t w o - y e a r- o l d Bobby Clifford Smith III faces theft and related charges for allegedly exchanging a toilet he didn't buy for gift cards at a Somerset County home improvement store. State police say Smith, of Windber, entered the store on Aug. 28, grabbed a toilet from a shelf and immediately went to the return line to exchange it for more than $600 in gift cards. Investigators say surveillance footage from the store captured the entire episode. The Johnstown TribuneDemocrat reports Smith was arraigned Tuesday and held on $30,000 bail. Court records don’t list an attorney for him.

Battle for working-class whites DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney are working feverishly for an increasingly smaller but crucial slice of the electorate — white, workingclass voters. These clock-punching voters — from Iowa’s tiny manufacturing cities to Virginia coal country to pockets of Ohio reliant on the auto industry — are considered the potential tipping point in battleground states that will decide the winner on Nov. 6. These voters are also critical to turning less competitive states such as Michigan into suddenly swing states in the final stretch. Romney is trying to expand what polls show is an advantage for the Republican while Obama hopes to narrow the gap. Both candidates are try-

ing to pit these voters against their opponent by stoking a sense of economic and social unfairness, and also by calling on surrogates with stronger ties to these voters. It’s why Romney has seized on Obama’s decision to give states greater flexibility on welfare work requirements and why Obama turned to former President Bill Clinton, long popular with workingclass voters, to make the case for his second-term bid. “In the richest country in the history of the world, this Obama economy has crushed the middle class,” Romney said in accepting the Republican presidential nomination. Obama counters that Romney’s opposition to a federal bailout of U.S. automakers hurts his chances with working-class whites.

“I stood with American manufacturing. I believed in you. I bet on you,” Obama told an audience in Toledo an automotive manufacturing hub within sight of Michigan, on Labor Day. These voters are a hodgepodge of union households and gun-rights advocates, often from rural areas and smaller cities. They are found in a handful of competitive states where neither candidate has an appreciable advantage, including northern Florida and northwest and southeast Ohio. They are also found in key counties in states that have voted Democratic in presidential elections since the 1980s but are seen as more competitive this year. Those include areas outside Madison and Milwaukee in southern Wisconsin, mixed-in-

come suburbs outside Detroit and rural parts of western Pennsylvania. Romney nor Neither Obama has a natural connection with them. Both are Harvard-educated and wealthy. But Obama, an African American raised politically in Chicago’s Democratic network, has struggled with these voters. Obama famously dismissed their misgivings about his candidacy in 2008, saying “they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or antiimmigrant sentiment or antitrade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Romney, the son of a former governor and car company president, made a fortune as a private equity firm executive before serving a term as Massachusetts governor.

Jurors give weight to late wife’s comments BY MICHAEL TARM Associated Press JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Jurors said Friday that comments Stacy Peterson made before her 2007 disappearance played the decisive role in convincing them to convict her husband, former police officer Drew Peterson, of killing his ex-wife. Peterson was convicted Thursday of first-degree murder after a six-week trial that was the first of its kind in Illinois history. Prosecutors based their case on normally barred hearsay, which was only allowed after the Legislature passed a law specifically tailored to Peterson’s case. The strategy was risky and grew in large part from a lack of physical evidence collected in the case after investigators initially deemed Kathleen Savio’s death an accident. Prosecutors claimed the hearsay would allow Savio and Stacy Peterson — who is presumed dead — “to speak from their graves” through family and friends. It worked. Jury foreman Eduardo Sal-

MEMBERS OF the jury that heard the murder trial of former Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson from left, alternate juror, Patricia Timke, 68, Teresa Mathews, 49, jury foreman Eduardo Saldana, 22, and Jeremy Massey, 26, answer questions during a news conference Friday in Joliet, Ill. dana, 22, said the women’s comments were “extremely critical” in deliberations and in his decision to convict Peterson. He said he was one of four jurors who initially had reservations give a lack of physical evidence tying the former police officer to Savio’s death. But Saldana said the more he thought about

hearsay testimony from Stacy Peterson’s pastor, the more compelling he found it. The Rev. Neil Schori testified that Stacy Peterson told him weeks before she went missing that her husband got up from bed and left the house about the time of Savio’s death and then returned to stuff women’s clothing in their

washing machine. Peterson also coached his wife for hours on how to lie to police, Schori told jurors. Defense lawyers have said the presentation of hearsay, or information reported by a witness that is not based on the witness’ direct knowledge, undercut Peterson’ constitutional rights because he couldn’t directly confront his accusers — namely, his third and fourth wives. They tried to discredit Stacy Peterson by having attorney Harry Smith testify that she asked him if she could squeeze more money out of Peterson in a divorce if she threatened to tell police he killed Savio. But Saldana and other jurors said Smith only ended up stressing that Stacy Peterson knew her husband had, in fact, murdered his ex-wife. As he realized Smith was starting to hurt Peterson’s case, the defense attorney questioning him, Joel Brodsky, began shouting at Smith, accusing him of lying. Juror Teresa Mathews, 49, said Friday that Smith had nothing to gain by making up testimony.

Bishop’s conviction intensifies calls to step down KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Calls for Bishop Robert Finn’s resignation intensified a day after he became the highestranking U.S. church official to be convicted of a crime related to the child sexual abuse scandal. Soon after a Missouri judge found Finn guilty Thursday of one misdemeanor count of failing to report suspected child sexual abuse to the state, unhappy Roman Catholics began discussing

ways to get the bishop out of office on a Facebook page titled “Bishop Finn Must Go.” Among the posts was one that listed contact information for the Vatican and urged parishioners to voice their displeasure with Finn at the highest levels. Pope Benedict XVI alone has authority over bishops. Through the decadeslong abuse scandal, only one U.S. bishop has stepped down over his failures to stop abusive clergy: Cardinal Bernard

Law, who in 2002 resigned as head of the Archdiocese of Boston. Jackson County Judge John M. Torrence sentenced Finn to two years of supervised probation. If the bishop abides by a set of stipulations from the judge, the conviction will be wiped from his record in 2014. “Now that our justice system says he’s guilty, he has lost his ability to lead our diocese,” Patricia Rotert, a

Catholic church member in Kansas City, said Friday. “He’s lost his credibility. There is turmoil and angst around him and I don’t think he can bring people together.” Finn’s attorneys would not comment on the bishop’s future in the church, saying it was a legal matter. However, Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph spokesman Jack Smith indicated that Finn wasn’t going anywhere.

At least 80 dead in China quakes

Police: 3 bomb attacks in northern Iraq kill 8

BEIJING (AP) — Twin earthquakes and a spate of aftershocks struck southwestern China on Friday, toppling thousands of houses and sending boulders cascading across roads. At least 80 people were killed and hundreds injured in the remote mountainous area, and more than 100,000 residents were evacuated. Damage was preventing rescuers from reaching outlying towns, and communications were disrupted after the midday quakes hit along the borders of Guizhou and Yunnan provinces, a region of small farms and mines where some of China’s poorest people live. The first magnitude-5.6 quake struck just before 11:30 a.m. and was followed by an equally strong quake shortly after noon, joined by dozens of aftershocks. Though of moderate strength, the quakes were shallow, which often causes more damage. Hardest hit was Yiliang County, where all but one of the deaths occurred, according to the Yunnan provincial government’s official website. Another 730 people in the area were injured, the state-run Xinhua News Agency said. Yiliang’s high population density, flimsy building construction and landslide-prone hillsides were

blamed for the relatively high death toll. China Central Television showed roads littered with rocks and boulders and pillars of dust rising over hilltops from the landslides. One image taken just as one quake struck showed people running out of a supermarket as the ground shook. Other footage showed several hundred people crowding into a school athletic field in Yiliang’s county seat, a sizable city spread along a river in a valley, as well as soldiers carrying injured people and rescue materials. Though quakes occur in the area frequently, buildings in rural areas and China’s fastgrowing smaller cities and towns are often constructed poorly. A magnitude-7.9 quake that hit Sichuan province, just north of Yunnan, in 2008 killed nearly 90,000 people, with many of the deaths blamed on poorly built structures, including schools. Friday’s quakes destroyed 6,650 homes across several counties and townships, Xinhua said. The Yunnan seismology bureau said more than 100,000 people were evacuated from their homes. All told, 700,000 people had their lives disrupted by the quake, Xinhua said.

In Luozehe, a town in Yiliang near a zinc mine, residents and state media said boulders hurtled off hillsides and houses collapsed. “It is scary. My brother was killed by falling rocks. The aftershocks struck again and again. We are so afraid,” Xinhua quoted miner Peng Zhuwen as saying. Wu Xuhong, a goat herder in Luozhe, said only tiles fell from his relatively solid cement and brick sheds. “But I heard that a lot of buildings built of clay and wood collapsed and we temporarily lost power and mobile phone signal,” Wu said. The Red Cross spokesman for East Asia, Francis Markus, said 2,000 quilts, 2,000 jackets and 500 tents were being rushed to the area, which is largely inhabited by members of the Yi ethnic minority. He said the use of light construction materials would likely create far more injuries than deaths. A government official in Jiaokui town said a large number of houses had collapsed. “The casualty number is still being compiled. I don’t know what it was like for the other towns, but my town got hit badly,” he said. He refused to give his name.

SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq (AP) — Three separate bomb attacks against Shiite mosques in a volatile northern Iraqi city killed eight civilians on Friday and injured 70 others, police said. Kirkuk police commander Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qadir said the blasts took place as worshipers were leaving mosques. Qadir said the deadliest attack occurred when a parked car bomb went off in Kirkuk’s southern Domiz area. A second bomb exploded after police and rescuers rushed to the scene. Both bombs killed a total of eight and wounded 36. Three other bombs targeted two more mosques in the center of the city, causing 34 injuries but no fatalities. As in other Muslim countries, Friday sermons draw crowds of worshippers in Iraq. Kirkuk, 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Baghdad, is home to a combustible mix of Kurds, Sunni Arabs and Turkomen who all claim rights to the city and the oilrich lands around it.

Hamilton show at library The September exhibit at the Amos Memorial Public Library, 230 E. North St., is from the studio of Mila Hamilton, of Sidney. It comprises artwork from a variety of age and skill levels, as several friends joined Hamilton in her studio this summer. The artwork was interpreted from photos taken at lakes in Ohio. Acrylics, plasters, luster stones and mixed media were used. With the desire to work more on canvas, Hamilton set aside “studio time� and was joined by friends. “Pontooning and relaxing at local lakes gave me the inspiration and resources for the theme for this exhibit, ‘Ohio Lake Life and the Fifth Day.’ The ‘fifth day’ refers to the day of creation that God filled the skies and waters with living creatures. The varieties of these creatures found at our lakes are beautiful. From blue heron, blue

Gardeners learn of tips, tools weeding, slicing through roots, and planting. A serrated edge along one side cuts through tough roots, and some knives have a notch on the other side for cutting twine. Some have engraved rulers along the shafts so the depth of a planting hole can be measured. And almost all of them have bright, orange grips, making them easy to find if misplaced.All tools should be cleaned at least once a year, Russell said. They should also be immediately cleaned after cutting or pruning diseased stems and branches, especially those with powdery mildew or fungus. A solution of nine parts water to one part bleach disinfects tools, but Russell said she prefers the convenience of alcohol wipes or paper towels dipped in alcohol, since drying time is dramatically reduced and there is no chance of rust’s forming. After tools, including handles are disinfected, they should be oiled. Sticky sap can be easily removed with Goo-Gone. Tools should also be sharpened at least once per season. Russell showed a small sharpener she uses for pruners without having to disassemble them. She uses a metal file on larger tools, such as shovels. Steel wool pads help remove rust and clean hard-to-reach tool parts. “The Pruning Answer Book� is a resource available through Mas-

ter Gardeners at the Extension Office that answers many questions about pruning and tools. Russell also distributed a handout, “20 Questions of Pruning,� that discussed and illustrated how and when to use tools correctly. She showed two unusual tools from A.M. Leonard and played “Stump the Audience.� One turned out to be a rose thorn remover; the other was called a nut wizard and is used to pick up acorns and nuts from lawns. A question and answer session followed during which members sharing tool tips they’ve found useful. Marcia Grigg told members that an easy way to keep tools in good shape is to fill a soap dispenser with oil. Clean tools with a bleach solution or alcohol and use the oil on a steel wool pad. Grigg also had a tip for pruning trees and large shrubs. Use WiteOut to mark cuts before using a saw or loppers. They’re easy to see, and they help avoid mistakes later. The theme for the August arrangement was We Love New Toys for the Garden, and Ginny Shaw showed a miniature ceramic birdbath, planted with a variety of small succulents. It was surrounded by garden gloves, a trowel, and several other tools of the trade. Mary Lou Overton read a note from Doris Hager who enjoyed judging the Fair flower show

month. Hager last shared the following tips for exhibitors: • Make sure to clean containers and plants. • Remove any store or nursery tags before displaying pots and hanging baskets. • Scrape hydrangea stems and dip them in alum to keep them fresh. • Encourage creative artistic designs. • Don’t combine creative and traditional techniques in the same arrangement. The Shelby County Fair flower show was a success in spite of the extremely dry weather, it was reported. The 296 entries comprised 22 roses, 204 horticultural specimens, 36 potted plants, eight hanging baskets, and 26 artistic arrangements. Sharon Allen updated members on the Fall Region 5 meeting which will be Oct. 25 at the American Legion in Sidney. The morning session will feature holiday traditions, and the afternoon session will focus on wreaths and swags. Ginny Shaw distributed information concerning the Applefest flower show to be Sept. 8 at the Job and Family Services building. The theme is Harvest Splendor.

Members of the Shelby County Family & Children First Council Executive Council discussed a proposed youth survey during their meeting in August. Director Jodi Brewer distributed copies of the proposed needs assessment tool for review. Members considered whether, with 81 questions, it was too long. In other business, the council heard a report by Ashley Schindewolf on the Help Me Grow program. She reported that the Ohio Department of Health would audit the program on Aug. 22 and that the Sidney/Shelby County Health Department has received approval to be a home visit provider.

Members of the Rainbow Gardeners learned about gardening tools and tips for using them when Nancy Russell spoke at their August meeting. She showed many of the tools she uses in her own garden and some from A.M. Leonard, and discussed the pros, cons, and care of each. Anvil style pruners have blades which, unlike scissors, do not cross and are best used for cutting dead twigs and branches, she said. They crush rather than cut and can bruise live stems, inviting insects and disease. By-pass pruners have scissor-like blades, and the best ones can last for many years given proper care. They can be used to cut stems and small branches up to ½ inch in diameter. Loppers come in several sizes and are used to prune branches up to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Long-handled loppers enable gardeners to reach higher branches without using a ladder. A foldable saw should be used for larger branches. Russell recommended sawing on both sides of a branch to avoid splitting the bark into the live part of a tree. The most useful type of saw, she noted, has a serrated blade that cuts in both directions. Pruning is not just a spring chore. Dead and/or diseased branches and stems should be removed at any time of the year. A gardening knife can be used for digging,

home,” Viola said. He told stories of particular men, including Petalesharo, the first Indian painted while wearing a war bonnet. According to Viola, other painters became enamoured of war bonnets and often added them to pictures of Native Americans. “You know all those pictures you see of the first Thanksgiving with the Indians in war bonnets?” he asked. “That’s ridiculous. The eastern tribes didn’t even have war bonnets.” Petalesharo belonged to a tribe that sacrificed a virgin woman each year by burning her at the stake. He thought that was barbaric, Viola said. One year, he swooped in and saved the girl. The story spread across the country and when Petalesharo arrived in Washington, a girls seminary had a peace medal struck for him. The medal was found on the chest of a corpse in a grave in Nebraska in 1910. “That was Petalesharo’s grave,” Viola noted. Another man, a Cherokee, David Vann, had been educated in Europe. He thought he was more civilized than the congressmen he was meeting. But he was treated like all the other Indians. McKenney often

JUDGES under a few different chefs who guided me in the right direction.” Before he joined the staff at the Bridge, the Indian Lake native worked at Kent’s Woodfire Steaks in Troy and at Harrison’s in Tipp City. His favorite thing to make at home is “anything on the grill,” he said. “And my chili. I love cooking chili.” Wagner has been head chef at Le Doux, a restaurant in Troy, for about a year. He previously created dishes for the Troy Country Club where he worked under French Chef Patrick, and at Taggart’s, La Piazza and as sous chef at Club 55, all Troy restaurants. “Since (cooking) is my job, I don’t like to do it much at home,” Wagner said. “Usually I cook pasta dishes.” The deadline for readers to submit recipes is Friday. Readers from throughout the circulation areas of the three, sister newspapers are invited to submit one recipe per cook in each of nine categories. The recipes may be submitted to any one of the three newspapers, but they may not be submitted to more than one newspaper.

bought clothes, tomahawks and headdresses from the Indians. He created the first museum in Washington to display them. It was the forerunner of today’s Museum of the American Indian. Viola told the audience that a number of the Indians died while they were on their way to Washington or while they were there. Some of them are buried in a cemetery not far from Capitol Hill. The famous chief, Cochise, refused to go to Washington, but he sent his son, Taza. Taza died there and is buried in the cemetery. When Andrew Jackson became president, he fired McKenney. But McKenney “borrowed” the paintings surreptiously and them to smuggled Philadelphia, where he and James Hall, who wrote the historical copy, created lithographs of them. The paintings were then just as surreptiously returned to the Smithsonian. However, a fire in the museum in 1865 destroyed almost all of them. Today, the lithographs are all that remain. Viola concluded this talk by recounting stories of present-day Indians, like Joe Medicine Crow, 98, who is the last living Indian to achieve the rank of war chief, and whose grandfather was a scout for Gen. George Custer.

From Page 1 Three semi-finalists will be chosen in each of the nine categories. Those semi-finalists will prepare their dishes for the judges and present them on Cook-Off Day. The cook-off will take place in the Crossroads, a hall in Hardin. Semi-finalists must attend to be eligible to win in their categories and to be eligible to win the grand prize. Throughout the Cook-Off Day, door prizes will be awarded to all semi-finalists. One winner in each category will be awarded a $50 gift card from an area retailer. Watch the newspaper for an upcoming announcement of who those retailers are and what the grand prize will be. All recipes must be received either by email or hard copy at the respective newspaper offices by 5 p.m., Friday. All submissions must be emailed or typed. No handwritten submissions will be considered. Each submission must include the name of the recipe, the category in which it is submitted and the name, address, telephone number and email address of the cook. Children 14 and

younger may submit recipes in the Kids in the Kitchen category as well as any other category. Children who submit recipes must include their ages and their parents names in the contestant information they provide. The 2012 categories are as follows: • Main Dishes: Entrees, casseroles, anything that anchors a meal. • Desserts: Those delectable sweets that end a meal. • Holiday Traditions: Recipes for the dishes that your family would miss if they weren’t part of a special holiday menu. • Kids in the Kitchen: What kids cook for themselves and for their families. This category is open only to children 14 and younger. • Veggies and Sides: Wholesome and tasty vegetable creations and side dishes that make a meal perfect. • Seafood: Featuring anything that swims in stream, lake or sea. • Soups, Stews and Chili: Stick-to-your-ribs comfort food or exotic taste treats that are usually served in a bowl.

BOTKINS — Kathy Pleiman, Shelby and Logan County coordinator for the Community Blood Center (CBC), has announced a change of location for a public blood drive Tuesday in Botkins. The drive was originally scheduled at the Palazzo but has been moved to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, located at North Main and Walnut streets, due to a scheduling conflict. The drive will run from noon to 6:30 p.m. Botkins Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is sponsoring the blood drive and Margie Haehn is their adviser and chairwoman for the blood drive. Whole blood and double-red cells will be collected. A special edition mug will be given to all blood donors who register to donate at Palazzo. Appointments to donate are strongly encouraged and help the Community Blood Center plan for the appropriate amount of donors. Technology is making it faster and more convenient than ever to schedule your next blood dona-




havior. Do you praise the grandmother for speaking out? No, you respond that if she doesn’t have something “good” to say to keep quiet. What’s the matter; don’t you like grandmothers? - Granny, Montgomery, Ala. GRANNY: I love grandmothers. The vast majority is wise, kind, courteous and thankful if they must move into a son or daughter’s family. The teen said her grandmother and the teen’s mother would argue about the way the teen was being raised. I felt the grandmother should not get involved in the mother-daughter relationship. When that happens, Grandmother is a liability, instead of an asset and should possibly find somewhere else to live.

REPLAY 50 years ago Sept. 8, 1962 Mark Froning hurled a no-hitter to lead New Bremen’s Cardinals to a 5-2 victory over New Knoxville’s Rangers on Friday afternoon. Although held to two singles by Howe and Kruse, New Bremen pushed across two markers in the bottom of the second, one in the fourth and two more in the fifth. New Bremen was particularly outstanding on the base paths, pilfering a grand total of 12 bases. Froning fanned eight and walked five for New Bremen.

25 years ago Sept. 8, 1987 Minster’s girls capured the championship at Columbus Grove, totaling 29 points to outdistance second-place Botkins, which had 46.

Storms postpone football Weather played havoc with high school football games around the area Friday night, most being postponed to this afternoon. • Sidney and West Carrollton got only half a quarter in before lightning caused a delay and ultimately postponement of the high schoolfootball game Friday night. The game was halted with the score at 7-3 in favor of the hosts. It will be completed today starting at 4 p.m. at West Carrollton. The game started ominously for the Jackets, who misplayed the opening kickoff and wound up starting from their own 4-yard line. Afer Eric Barnes got six yards on first down, the Jackets went nowhere and were forced to punt from deep in their own endzone. After the exchange, West

Carrollton took over on the Sidney 30 and later scored on a 1-yard run by Emil Suriel. Sidney answered, though, with the key play being a 25yard screen pass from Jordan Fox to Kaleb Martin. Sidney converted a fourthand-one at the 25 when the Pirates jumped offsides, but the drive then stalled. Andre Spillers came on and booted a 38-yard field goal to make it 7-3. • With a bucket of playoff points hanging in the balance, the host Lehman Cavaliers were tied 7-7 with Indian Lake when the game was postponed at halftime due to lightning. Things will pick up where they left off this afternoon at 4 p.m. at Sidney Memorial Stadium. Following a scoreless opening quarter, both teams found

the end zone in the second period. Lehman tallied the first touchdown of the game a little before the midway point in the second quarter. Starting their drive at the midfield logo, the Cavaliers strung together an impressive nineplay, 50-yard scoring drive capped off by a one-yard touchdown by Andrew Gilardi. The Lakers responded on their next possession stretching an extensive drive across the field, culminated by a one-yard TD by Montel Morgan. • The Anna Rockets were well on their way to a third straight win, rolling to a 20-0 lead over 2-0 Fort Recovery when the game was called with still 1:12 left in the opening quarter.

TOLEDO — Fort Loramie journeyed to the northernmost reaches of Ohio, and escaped the stormy weather long enough to get their high school football game in Friday night. And it was well worth the long trip, the Redskins blasting Toledo Christian in non-league action, 54-6, on the strength of four touchdowns apiece from Delaunte Thornton and Craig Fullenkamp. The Redskins are now 2-0 and host county rival Lehman Friday night in Northwest Central Conference action. Game time will be 7 p.m. “We played outstanding defense,� said coach Matt Burgbacher of the Redskins. “We created some plays for ourselves with the defense and shut them down. We were concerned about their quarterback and one of their receivers, but he only had one catch, and the quarterback didn’t hurt us when he ran.� The Redskins put up two scores in the opening quarter, Thornton scoring from a yard out and Fullenkamp taking a 50-yard pass from Seth Guillozet. Toledo’s only score came in the second period, but Loramie put up two more, Thornton scoring from 20 yards out and Fullenkamp shaking loose for a 55-yard scoring run to make it 27-6 at the half. Loramie scored three more times in the third quarter. Fullenkamp took another 50yard pass from Guillozet for a score, Thornton ran in from 8 yards out, and Fullenkamp scored on an 80-yard pass from Guillozet.

These Browns are real green BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Benjamin Watson looked at the name plates and fresh faces surrounding him as he dressed after practice. The 31-year-old tight end noticed the Cleveland Browns have gotten a whole lot younger. “In this locker room, my 3-year-old’s old,” he joked. He’s hardly, well, kidding. With 15 rookies and 12 other players with less than two years of experience on the 53-man roster, the Browns are counting on youth to serve them in 2012. They are the first team since Kansas City in 2008 to have 15 rookies for the opening game, and with an average age of 26 years, 10 days, the Browns are the NFL’s second-youngest squad, according to STATS LLC. “They have fresh legs,” coach Pat Shurmur cracked the other day. That’s true, but the young Browns will also have to endure some growing pains in the weeks ahead. There’s no

CLEVELAND BROWNS rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden scrambles in a preseason game. The Browns begin the season with 15 rookies and 12 more players in either their first or second years. substitute for experience, and it will be quite some time before they’ll have any to draw upon. Still, the Browns aren’t worried that they’re too young to be good. On Sunday, against a Philadelphia team many believe can win the

Super Bowl, the Browns will start a rookie quarterback (Brandon Weeden), rookie running back (Trent Richardson), rookie right offensive (Mitchell tackle Schwartz) , rookie defensive tackle (Billy Winn) and possibly rookie wide

receiver (Josh Gordon), if they open in a threewide formation. And soon, they’ll have a rookie owner as Jimmy Haslam’s purchase of the franchise is expected to be approved next month. But Browns president Mike Holmgren doesn’t think the team’s innocent look will be a detriment. “This football team, even though it’s young, is physically much better,” Holmgren said. “We are young, but we have better players and we have better depth. I believe our special team’s has a chance to be much better. If you’re going to build it the way we’re going to build it, there’s a chance you have these types of numbers.” At 28, Weeden is no ordinary rookie and he’ll be the first to start an opener at quarterback for Cleveland. Weeden didn’t expect the Browns to be so green in his first season. “It’s a lot,” he said of the team’s large rookie class. “I’m not a numbers buff as far as NFL history, but this has got to be

close to a record. There’s a lot of rookies but there’s good ones, really good players. Whether they’re 22, 28, or whatever, they’re rookies and there’s going to be some ups and some downs.” linebacker Browns D’Qwell Jackson expects a rollercoaster ride. He knows there will be times when his young teammates are overwhelmed. It’s just part of the deal. But Jackson said there’s something special about being around a bunch of eager, excited teammates who don’t know what’s ahead of them and who don’t seem to care. “It brings the team together, having young guys around, they’re playful and doing this and doing that,” he said. “There’s always fun everywhere.” As Jackson spoke, Winn danced nearby to music coming from a speaker in end Frostee Rucker’s locker. “See,” Jackson said, pointing at Winn. Jackson said one of the biggest plusses about young players is

that they’re willing. There’s no questions, no second-guessing, it’s follow directions or suffer the consequences. “They’re doing what they’re told,” Jackson said. “You can kind of mold guys where you can help them obviously, but they will do what they’re told exactly to the tee.” Weeden, who will be the 17th quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999, said the team’s young blood is an advantage because players aren’t as physically beaten down as maybe some veterans. “We’ve got some guys, they don’t get tired,” Weeden said. “They run around, they just continue to go like the Energizer Bunny. Some of these receivers just run and run and keep going. I think that will help. And from what I’ve seen, a lot of these guys have short memories. You have to have a short memory to play in this league and to play bigtime professional sports in general. “Hopefully we’ll use that to our advantage.”

Lowly Astros rally to beat Reds 5-3 CINCINNATI (AP) — Matt Dominguez hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning Friday night that broke Aroldis Chapman's streak of 27 consecutive saves and powered the Houston Astros to a 5-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Chapman (5-5) took a 3-2 lead into the ninth, but had his club-record streak broken by a player swinging with a sore left hand.

Tyler Green and J.D. Martinez singled off Chapman with one out. Dominguez, out of the starting lineup because of the sore hand, hit Chapman’s second pitch for his second career homer and the fourth off the hard-throwing lefthander this season. Chapman is 35 of 40 in save chances overall. Wilton Lopez pitched the ninth for his third save in six chances.

Trying to pull free Lehman running back Andrew Westerheide runs hard and tries to break away from an Indian Lake defender in first-half action at Sidney Memorial Stadium Friday. The game was deadlocked at 7-7 when it was postponed because of weather. It will resume today at 4 p.m.

The final score came in the fourth quarter on a 45-yard run by Thornton. “We threw the ball well but had a couple of plays that were intercepted, so we still need to work on it,” said Burgbacher. “But they came in looking to take away our running game and when a team does that, you have to loosen them up. We used good play action and slipped some guys out there.” Score by quarters: Loramie ......13 14 14 13—54

games because the university would have more control of beer sales. After one year, West Virginia reported a decrease in alcohol-related arrests at games, plus a profit of more than $500,000 from beer sales. Currently, 22 of the 120 NCAA Division I schools sell beer at their football games, with only 11 of those being on campus stadiums. Interestingly, three of those on-campus stadiums are in Ohio – Bowling Green, Cincinnati and Akron. Do not expect Ohio State to increase that number anytime soon, though. Minnesota is the only Big Ten school

which sells beer at its stadium and OSU is not interested in doing it. Week Two of Urban Meyer’s first season as OSU’s coach will bring Central Florida to Ohio Stadium today. Some people, Meyer included, have been pushing the idea that the Knights could be brewing an upset. Meyer even went so far as to say former OSU coach John Cooper, who scouts for some NFL teams, told him Central Florida has five or six NFL-worthy players. Maybe. But they also have a quarterback who has started one game in college and their No. 1 running back won’t play. They’re favored to win

the Eastern Division of Conference USA and they’re moving to the Big East next season. Their coach, George O’Leary, is a proven winner who is more famous for an exaggeration on his resume that cost him the Notre Dame job than for his victories. And Storm Johnson, who will be the featured running back this week, is a former Florida recruit who broke a 71-yard touchdown run during his brief time as a Gator. But UCF was 5-7 last season and the excitement over its 56-14 win against Akron in this season’s opener should be tempered by the memory of Akron look-

ing like a glorified JV squad when it came into Ohio Stadium last year. Central Florida was up 35-0 at halftime against the Zips and two of its scoring drives in the game started inside Akron’s 10-yard line. Meyer described his team as “average” earlier this week, possibly trying to reinforce the idea that Central Florida is above average, at least in terms of the non-conference opponents Ohio State usually sees. Today’s game could be closer than OSU’s 56-10 win over Miami of Ohio in the opener. But not that close. Prediction: OSU 35, Central Florida 17.

Quincy man puts Browns on display BY KEN BARHORST QUINCY — Like Cleveland Browns fans everywhere, Robb Carpenter of Quincy was devastated when the late Art Modell moved the storied francise to Baltimore in 1995. But he found a way to ease his pain. Behind the door that leads to the basement of his home is the entrance to a shrine, a monument of sorts to the team he loves. Everywhere you look, everywhere you walk, everywhere you sit, it’s Browns memorabilia. There’s no leaning against a wall if your legs get tired — there’s no room. They are covered, in three different rooms — and that doesn’t count the stairwell, which is impressive on its own. “It all started out with a couple of things from my childhood, and at that time, it kinda filled a void.” Carpenter said. “Because I just grew up liking not only football, but the Browns. When they moved in ’95, just collecting this stuff filled a void. And when we moved to Quincy, that’s when it pretty much all started.” He said it’s arrived at the point where something has to be unique to be added to his collection. He has all the common items that can be found in department stores and specialty shops. And he has commemorative cards, jerseys, blankets, and plenty of helmets, some of them signed by former Browns’ greats. So his head doesn’t turn as much when he sees the brown and orange colors. But put that unique item out there — he would love a program from the 1964 championship game — and he’ll be plenty interested. “Now I’m just trying to tweak it,” was how he put it. One of his most cherished items is a Browns helmet he got for Christmas when he was just seven years old. “I grew up in Coshocton,” he said. “My dad, who just passed away in March, got me hooked on

On his lap are the Browns helmet he got for Christmas when he was just 7, and a piece of wood torn from the “Dawg Pound” at the old Browns Stadium. the Browns. Ever since then, you know, growing up watching (Brian) Sipe and those guys... I’m jealous of the ones who grew up watching guys like Jim Brown. But I always try to keep the history, because honestly, they’ve been bad for so long that you have to keep that history alive. “My kids are Browns fans and I try to instill not only the history, but the tradition of what it was like before,” he said. He’s apparently succeeded in doing that — his 7-year-old son Ian’s favorite Browns player is Jim Brown (Browns 1957-65), and his 10year-old son Andrew’s favorite is Otto Graham (1946-55). Daughter Sarah, 15, is a bit more modern. Her favorite player is current Browns’ All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas. Robb’s desire to preserve the tradition goes beyond that, too. “We took a trip to Cleveland, my mom lives in Holmes County up near Wooster,” he began. “We drove through Massillon and saw the gravesite of Paul Brown. I guess some people would consider that creepy, but it took me back because... this is the guy that started it all.” He estimates he has

over 2,000 items on display, and the backdrop are walls painted in the team’s colors. Collecting items today is easier than it used to be with things like eBay, but sometimes you still have to improvise. He said one of his most unique items is a small vial that contains grass, complete with orange paint, from the 50yard line of the new Browns stadium. And how it wound up in his basement is quite a story in itself. “We took a tour of the new stadium,” he said. “They were talking about something and I just reached down like I was tying my shoe or something, grabbed the grass and put it in my pocket. My wife said ‘what the heck are you doing?’ And I’m like, ‘I’ll tell you later.’” Carpenter and his wife Molly operate the Handy Mart gas station in Quincy, and he said she is very supportive. “She got me started,” said Carpenter, a Browns season-ticket holder. “When we looked through the Browns stuff I had, she said ‘why don’t you display some of this?’” But even she might not have envisioned what developed.

Bengals, Ravens start anew in AFC North duel BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals can’t ignore their shortcoming of last season: an 0-7 record against teams that made the playoffs, followed by a humbling loss to Houston in the wild-card round. For that reason, the Bengals have put a huge priority on defeating the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. “Oh man, it would be great,” wide receiver A.J. Green said. “Last year we lost (twice) to Baltimore and the Steelers. If we want to get over that hump, we have to beat those two at least once.” The Bengals went 9-7, good enough for a wildcard spot but too far behind the Ravens and Pittsburgh to make an impression on the two best teams in the division. Although Cincinnati did have a feel-good win against a Buffalo team that faded in the stretch, coach Marvin Lewis stressed the need for improvement in 2012 — beginning with the opener. “Well, it’s an important game,” Lewis said. “Buffalo was undefeated, and we beat them, and they were the cat’s meow. You have to win, you

have to win against good teams, and until you do everybody can say and do what they want.” Lewis’ assertion appears to have worked its way down to the players, who are eager to put an end to their annoying run of losses against the league’s elite teams. “Oh yeah, definitely,” Green said. “They are probably one of the best teams in our division. So, if we want to be one of the best, we have to beat the best.” The Ravens had plenty to be proud about in 2011. Before losing to New England in the AFC title game, Baltimore swept the AFC

North schedule and went 9-0 at home. Unlike the Bengals, the Ravens see no reason to dwell on last season. “Man, the streaks were last year. It’s a whole new year,” cornerback Lardarius Webb said. “This is a whole new start and a whole new team. We’re not going to worry about any of those streaks we had last year. We’re trying to start a streak this year, and it starts by going 1-0.” Pressed further, Webb said, “Please leave last year in last year. We swept the division last year, yes we did. We won all home games last year, yes we did. But that was

last year. Please forget it. It’s a new year. We just want to go 1-0 against Cincinnati.” Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis struck a similar chord. Asked what it means to bring an 11-game home winning streak

into the game (including the postseason), along with an NFL-best eightgame run within the division, Lewis said: “The only thing it means is that we can continue the streak starting with the Cincinnati Bengals and going 1-0 at home.

Everything of 2011 is done. It’s done. That chapter is closed. Now we have a whole new chapter ahead of us. We would really enjoy coming out of the gate 1-0 at home and definitely in the division. It would be huge for us.”

Council OKs park Minster Bank awards use for Oktoberfest scholarships to students Don Harrod, village administrator, gave a report, noting that the intersection of Fourth and Main streets has been opened to traffic again. Crews have completed all work on the Fourth Street project except for the traffic signals at Main and Fourth and some concrete work around the temporary light poles. Crews are working to clean up the area and correct minor problems in the area. Barrett Paving has paved Fourth Street and paved the areas that were part of the 2012 minor street resurfacing project.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, September 8, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A female family member, possibly your mother, will stir your sympathies today. Do whatever you can to help someone if he or she needs your assistance. (Remember the Golden Rule.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might spend a lot of time daydreaming or woolgathering today. Your imagination is off in never-never land dreaming about what might be possible in the future. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re very tempted to spend money on luxury and elegant items today. The bottom line, of course, is whether you can afford these items. Don’t go into debt. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you particularly sympathetic to the needs of others. You have a desire to please, and you also want to help anyone in need. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today you are willing to put the needs and wants of others before your own. Just call it a Mother Teresa influence. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) It will be a rewarding experience for you if you can work with nonprofit organizations or charitable societies to make the world a better place. You want to make a difference if you can. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Certain details of your private life will be made public today, and they will reveal how sympathetic you are about something. There’s nothing wrong with others seeing your soft, gentle heart. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today; therefore, give yourself a chance to enjoy beautiful places. Visit parks, museums, art galleries, architectural buildings and pristine nature. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might join forces with others to share something with someone who is less fortunate. Make sure you have all your facts before you make a commitment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Someone close to you will appeal to your sympathy today. Naturally, it’s good for you to respond with unaffected interest and generosity. Just make sure their appeal is genuine. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If you can help a co-worker today you will, and this is a good thing. After all, what goes around comes around. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You are in touch with your muse today. This is why you should grab any opportunity to express your creativity. Romance is particularly tender and sweet. YOU BORN TODAY You are intelligent. You have a fine, discriminating mind. You appreciate subtleties that others fail to see. Challenges don’t scare you. You sense what others want, and you have your finger on the pulse of the public. You’re very private about your personal life. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2003. Birthdate of: Adam Sandler, actor; Michelle Williams, actress; Mario Batali, restaurateur/celebrity chef. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
