What to do next? Newtown weighs fate of Sandy Hook School BY DAVE COLLINS The Associated Press NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Talk about Sandy Hook Elementary School is turning from last month’s massacre to the future, with differing opinions on whether students and staff should ever return to the

building where a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators. Some Newtown residents say the school should be demolished and a memorial built on the property in honor of those killed Dec. 14. Others believe the school should be renovated and the

areas where the killings occurred removed. That’s what happened at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., after the 1999 mass shooting. Those appear to be the two prevailing proposals as the community begins discussing the school’s fate. A public

Pie in my eye Mr. Fitness, portrayed by Josh Blanchard, of Buckland, reacts to having a pie thrown into his face during a Shock Wave wrestling match at the Shelby County Fairgrounds Saturday evening. Mr. Fitness was subjected to a number of humiliations during his match including having Twinkies stuffed into his mouth and his underwear pulled over his head. The event will benefit Gerry Boeke who was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2011.

Lehman’s Albers receives Teacher of the Year award Following the death of longtime Piqua businessman Stanley Harrison, owner and operator of Barclay’s Clothiers, his family wanted to establish a scholarship in his name to benefit students at Albers L e h m a n Catholic High School. After looking at the number of scholarships already available to high school graduates, Harrison’s wife, Sammye, and son, Bert, decided to recognize the often overlooked educators who make it possible for so many Lehman Catholic students to earn

scholarships to college. Convinced that the reason for student success at Lehman Catholic was the dedicated staff of teachers, they established the Harrison Family Teacher of the Year award. First awarded in 2007, the past recipients include Science Department Chair Sister Ginny Scherer, SC, George Grampp, former Social Studies Department chair; Barb Saluke, English Department chair and senior guidance counselor; Melissa Safreed, mathematics and psychology teacher, and Pamala Wendel, Mathematics Department chair. The 2012-13 Harrison Family Teacher of the Year recipient is Jack Albers. Albers

began teaching at Lehman Catholic in 1996 when he “retired” from teaching and coaching basketball at Marion Local. Albers holds a Bachelors Degree in finance from St. Joseph’s College (1966) and a Masters Degree in Curriculum & Supervision from Wright State University (1979). Albers has taken additional coursework at the University of Arkansas, Baldwin-Wallace, Ball State, Bowling Green State, Kent State, Miami, Ohio Northern, the University of Dayton, and The University of Michigan. Albers teaches precalculus, calculus, and AP calculus. Students in his classes can receive Dual Enrollment college credit through Edison State See ALBERS/Page 2

As influenza outbreaks begin to blanket the nation, both Wilson Memorial Hospital and the Sidney-Shelby County Health Department say they are anticipating increased local cases. The health department last week reported increased demand for flu vaccine and Wilson Memorial Hospital issued a flu awareness statement. “Wilson Memorial is trending in a similar pattern to regional hospitals regarding flu cases,” said Linda Smith, RN, BSN, CIC, the hospital’s infection specialist. “Our number of hospitalized flu cases has increased from last year. “Measures have been put in place to protect patients and families who come to the hospital for services,” Smith said. “We have not instituted a stricter visitor restriction policy at this time, but the number and pattern of illness visits is being monitored on a weekly basis.

Council to consider request In its first legislative meeting of the new year tonight, Sidney City council will consider an ordinance rezoning a Wapakoneta Avenue lot and introduce an ordinance providing for removal of a pedestrian crosswalk on North Street. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers at the municipal building. The rezoning ordinance, requested by David Jones, would rezone a portion of a lot at 1602-1604 Wapakoneta Ave. from single family residence to community business district. The North Street legislation would remove a crosswalk at Julia Lamb field that See COUNCIL/Page 2

Scramble for vaccine Flu season heats up across the nation WASHINGTON (AP) — Missed flu-shot day at the office last fall? And all those “get vaccinated” ads? A scramble for shots is under way as late-comers seek protection from a miserable flu strain already spreading through much of the country. Federal health officials said Friday that there is still some flu vaccine available and it’s not too late to benefit from it. But people may have to call around to find a clinic with shots still on the shelf, or wait a few days for a new shipment. “We’re hearing of spot shortages,” said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Colorado offers an example. Kaiser Permanente, which has 535,000 members in the state, stopped giving flu shots this week. But it expected to resume vaccinations when new shipments arrive, expected this weekend. Some questions and answers about flu vaccines: Q: Are we running out of vaccine? A: It’s January — we shouldn’t have a lot left. The traditional time to

get vaccinated is in the fall, so that people are protected before influenza starts spreading. Indeed, manufacturers already have shipped nearly 130 million doses to doctors’ offices, drugstores and wholesalers, out of the 135 million doses they had planned to make for this year’s flu season. At least 112 million have been used so far. The nation’s largest manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, said Friday that it still has supplies of two specialty vaccines, a high-dose shot for seniors, and an under-theskin shot for certain adults, available for immediate shipment. But it also is working to eke out a limited supply of its traditional shots — some doses that it initially hadn’t packaged syringes, said into spokesman Michael Szumera. They should be available late this month. And MedImmune, the maker of the nasal spray vaccine FluMist, said it has 620,000 extra doses available. Q: Can’t they just make more? A: No. Flu vaccine is complicated to brew, with supplies for each winter made months in advance and at the numbers expected to sell. Although health officials

recommend a yearly flu vaccination for nearly everybody, last year 52 percent of children and just 39 percent of adults were immunized. Most years, leftover doses have to be thrown out. Q: Should I still hunt for a vaccine? A: It does take two weeks for full protection to kick in. Still, health officials say it’s a good idea to be vaccinated even this late, especially for older people, young children and anyone with medical conditions such as heart or lung diseases that put them at high risk of dangerous flu complications. Flu season does tend to be worst in January and February, but it can run through March. Q: I heard that a new flu strain is spreading. Does the vaccine really work? A: Flu strains constantly evolve, the reason that people need an updated vaccine every year. But the CDC says this year’s is a good match to the types that are circulating, including a new kind of the tough H3N2 strain. That family tends to be harsher than other flu types — and health officials warned last fall that it was coming, and meant this winter would likely be tougher than last year’s flu season, the mildest on record.

Q: But don’t some people get vaccinated and still get sick? A: Flu vaccine never is 100 percent effective, and unfortunately it tends to protect younger people better than older ones. But the CDC released a study Friday showing that so far this year, the vaccine appears 62 percent effective, meaning it’s working about as well as it has in past flu seasons. While that may strike some people as low, Frieden said it’s the best protection available. “It’s a glass 62 percent full,” he said. “It’s well worth the effort.” Q: What else can I do? A: Wash your hands often, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Viruses can spread by hand, not just through the air. Also, cough in your elbow, not your hand. When you’re sick, protect others by staying home. And people who are in those high-risk groups should call a doctor if they develop symptoms, added CDC spokesman Tom Skinner. They might be prescribed antiviral medication, which works best if given within the first 48 hours of symptoms. ——— AP Medical Writers Lindsey Tanner and Mike Stobbe contributed to this report.

ALBERS or Wright State University. Albers is known for his different approach to the study of mathematics. He believes that math is not about the answers to the problems, but rather about the critical thinking process that gets the students to those answers. “There is a great need for reform in our teaching of mathematics at all levels,” said Albers. “When we just show them how to get the right answer, they will just memorize the steps. We are not teaching them to think. Because of the rapid growth in technology, teachers today must prepare students for jobs that have not even been invented yet. They must learn to

From Page 1 think critically so they can solve the problems of the future.” Albers is in his 47th year of teaching. In addition to teaching at Marion Local and Lehman Catholic, Albers career has included teaching part-time at Wright State University and Edison Community College. Catholic’s Lehman classroom teachers make the annual teacher of the year selection. The process involves the current teachers voting for the colleague they believe best suits the selection criteria. Lehman Catholic Principal Denise Stauffer made the announcement at a recent gathering that included

faculty, staff and administrators. “Jack has been a tremendous asset to the school community,” Stauffer said. “Our students are well-prepared for college level coursework in part because of his teaching style and his high-level understanding of mathematics.” “Mr. Albers was one of the toughest teachers I had in high school,” Emerson Climate Technologies Coop Student Matthew Pulfer said. Pulfer, a 2011 graduate of Lehman Catholic currently majoring in mechanical engineering at the University of Dayton, will be forever grateful for the preparation he received at Lehman. “I’ve watched any number of students

struggle with concepts that we learned in high school — several of them changing their majors and their career goals as a result,” Pulfer said. “As difficult as his class sometimes seemed, I will always be grateful for Mr. Albers’ demanding approach.” “I have enjoyed working with many wonderful people and have made lifelong friends,” Albers said. “Teaching at Lehman Catholic has been an incredibly rewarding experience — I will always feel blessed to have had the opportunity to teach here.” Albers lives on Grand Lake St. Marys with his wife, Vicki. They are the parents of five grown children, Yvonne, Jacqueline, Suzanne, Scott and Chad. They have 16 grandchildren.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Out for a Sunday morning jog in bright sunshine, Lance Armstrong hardly looked like a man about to finally confront the doping scandal that has shadowed his storied career like an angry storm cloud. “I’m calm, I’m at ease and ready to speak candidly,” Armstrong told The Associated Press, referring to his interview Monday with Oprah Winfrey. In what’s been billed as a “no-holds barred” session, the cyclist is expected to reverse course after a decade of denials and apologize for doping, as well as offer a limited confession about his role at the head of a long-running scheme to dominate the Tour de France with the aid of performanceenhancing drugs. Armstrong was stripped of all seven tour titles last year in the wake of a voluminous U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that portrayed him as a ruthless competitor, willing to go to any lengths to win the prestigious race.

Claude was always happiest talking about his involvement with country western music. In his younger days he played, sang and was the emcee for country western programs which included WOHP radio in Bellefontaine, the Little Grand Ole Opry in Piqua, and a country western show at the Armory building in Sidney. Many times when his children were younger he would include them to help sing or play music at these programs.

“There is certainly the possibility we may need to do so,” Smith continued. “We do request people who are ill, or think they may be getting ill, not visit in the hospital. “Patients who come to the hospital with a cough are being given a face mask as part of, our prevention measures.” A health department spokesperson said Friday it has adult vaccine on hand and is expecting a new supply of vaccine for children ages 3 through 18 soon.

Troubled lake to offer extended discounts ST. MARYS (AP) — Ohio is offering extended discounts starting this spring at Ohio’s largest inland lake. The sprawling Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio was hit by a toxic algae bloom in 2010 that damaged the region’s tourism business while highlighting problems caused by phosphorous runoff from farms. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says discounts at the lake include 25 percent off shelter house rentals and half-price discounts on fees for docks, camping and day use. The special rates will be in effect from April 1 until Oct. 31, but don’t include certain periods, including days around the Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day holidays. The department’s deputy director says the state hopes the discounts encourage people to pick Grand Lake St. Marys State Park as their vacation destination.

Va., the son of the late George S. and Lilly May (Dye) Sharp. Carl’s hometown was Belmont, W.Va., until he was in junior high, when his family moved to Ohio. He finished high school in Newport in Washington Township. While going to Newport School, Carl met his wife, Ethel L. Thomas. They were married Feb. 22, 1937. After Carl graduated from Ohio StateUniversity, they moved to Sidney. They were blessed with one son, Carl R. Sharp, who now resides in Sidney. Also surviving are two grandsons, Chris and Carl T.

SCHOOL Sunday’s meeting was an emotional gathering with many speaking in favor of keeping the school. Although opinions were mixed, most agreed that the Sandy Hook children and teachers should stay together. They’ve been moved to a school building about seven miles away in a neighboring town that has been renamed Sandy Hook Elementary School. “I have two children who had everything taken from them,” said Audrey Bart, who has two children at Sandy Hook who weren’t injured in the shooting. “The Sandy Hook Elementary School is their school. It is not the world’s school. It is not Newtown’s school. We cannot pretend it never happened, but I am not prepared to ask my children to run and hide. You can’t take away their school.” But fellow Sandy Hook parent Stephanie Carson said she couldn’t imagine ever sending her son back to the building. “I know there are children who were there who want to go back,” Carson said. “But the reality is, I’ve been to the new school where the kids are now, and we have to be so careful just walking through the halls. They are still so scared.” Mergim Bajraliu, a senior at Newtown High School, attended Sandy Hook, and his sister is a fourth-grader there. He said the school should stay as it is, and a memorial for the victims should be built there. “We have our best childhood memories at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and I don’t believe that one psychopath — who I refuse to name — should get away with taking away any more than he did on Dec 14,” he said. Police said Adam Lanza, 20, killed his mother at the home they shared in Newtown before opening fire with a semiautomatic rifle at the school and killing himself as police arrived. Last week, residents around town expressed similar opinions about the school’s future. “I’m very torn,” said Laurie Badick, of Newtown, whose children attended the school several years ago. “Sandy Hook

She has three children in high school, but they didn’t attend Sandy Hook Elementary School. She believes the building should be torn down. “I wouldn’t want to have to send my kids back to that school,” said Gibney, 50. “I just don’t see how the kids could get over what happened there.” Fran Bresson, a retired police officer who attended Sandy Hook Elementary School in the 1950s, wants the school to reopen, but he thinks the hallways and classrooms where staff and students were killed should be demolished. “To tear it down completely would be like saying to evil, ‘You’ve won,’” the 63-year-old Southbury resident said. Residents of towns where mass shootings occurred have grappled with the same dilemma. Some have renovated, some have demolished. Columbine High School, where two student gunmen killed 12 schoolmates and a teacher, reopened several months afterward. Crews removed the library, where most of the victims died, and replaced it with an atrium. On an island in Norway where 69 people — more than half of them teenagers attending summer camp — were killed by a gunman in 2011, extensive remodeling is planned. The main building, a cafeteria where 13 of the victims died, will be torn down. Virginia Tech converted a classroom building where a student gunman killed 30 people in 2007 into a peace studies and violence prevention center. An Amish community in Pennsylvania tore down the West Nickel Mines Amish School and built a new school a few hundred yards away after a gunman killed five girls there in 2006.

Word of the Week preserve — to keep alive or in existence; make lasting


Tens of thousands of years before there were movies, there was popcorn. Archaeologists have found 80,000-yearold corn pollen below Mexico City. Because this pollen is almost exactly the same as modern popcorn pollen, researchers believe that "cave people" most likely had popcorn. Popcorn probably grew first in Mexico, though it also was used in China and India hundreds of years before Columbus reached the Americas. The oldest popcorn ever found was discovered in the "Bat Cave" of central New Mexico. It is thought to be about 5,600 years old. In tombs in Peru, archaeologists found ancient kernels of popcorn that are so well preserved that they can still pop. Sometimes, conditions can preserve ancient popcorn so perfectly that it still looks fluffy and white when the dust is blown off of it. In a cave in southern Utah, researchers found surprisingly fresh-looking 1,000-yearold popcorn. Popcorn was probably an important part of life in the ancient Americas. On a 1,700year-old painted funeral urn found in Mexico, a corn god is shown wearing a headdress of popcorn. Decorated popcorn poppers from around the same time have been found in Peru. Europeans learned about popcorn from Native Americans. When Cortes invaded Mexico, and when Columbus arrived in the West Indies, each saw natives eating popcorn, as well as using it in necklaces and headdresses. Native Americans brought a bag of popped corn to the first Thanksgiving. A common way to eat popcorn at that time was to hold an oiled ear on a stick over the fire, then chew the popped kernels off it. Natives throughout the Americas also made a popcorn beer. Some made popcorn soup.

Did You Know? • Americans consume some 16 billion quarts of this whole grain, good-for-you treat. That’s 51 quarts per man, woman and child. • Compared to most snack foods, popcorn is low in calories. Airpopped popcorn has only 31 calories per cup. Oil-popped is only 55 per cup. • Popcorn is a type of maize (or corn), a member of the grass family, and is scientifically known as Zea mays everta. • Of the six types of maize/corn — pod, sweet, flour, dent, flint and popcorn — only popcorn pops. • Popcorn is a whole grain. It is made up of three components: the germ, endosperm and pericarp (also know as the hull). • Popcorn needs between 13.5-14 percent moisture to pop. • Popcorn differs from other types of maize/corn in that is has a thicker pericarp/hull. The hull allows pressure from the heated water to build and eventually bursts open. The inside starch becomes gelatinous while being heated; when the hull bursts, the gelatinized starch spills out and cools, giving it its familiar popcorn shape.

After learning about the fluffy food, colonists began enjoying the first puffed breakfast cereal — a bowl of popcorn, served with cream or milk. Popcorn was very popular in the United States from the late 19th century through the middle of the 20th century. It was available in parks, from street vendors and near theaters. During World War II, when sugar was rationed, Americans changed their snacking habits — they ate three times as much popcorn as they had before. Perhaps the favorite place to eat popcorn was at the movies. When television took off in the 1950s, popcorn sales dropped for a while. Today, the average American eats nearly 70 quarts of popcorn a year. But the United States isn't just a land of popcorn lovers—it's also the land of popcorn. Most of the world now gets its popcorn from Nebraska and Indiana.

A popcorn kernel is actually a seed. Like other seeds, inside it has a tiny plant embryo (a life form in its earliest phase). The embryo is surrounded by soft, starchy material that would give the embryo energy for growing into a plant. A hard, glossy shell protects the outside of the seed. The soft, starchy material holds some water. When the kernel is heated to a high heat (400 degrees F), the water inside the kernel turns into steam. The pressure from the steam causes the kernel to explode. The soft starch inside bursts out at about 40 times its original size, turning the kernel inside out. This creates the fluffy white area of a popped kernel. The ideal popcorn kernel contains about 14 percent moisture. If the popcorn is much drier, it will not pop. Popcorn kernels should be kept in a tightly sealed jar so that they will not dry out.

Fun Popcorn Facts • Most U.S. popcorn is grown in the Midwest, primarily in Indiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky and Missouri. • Many people believe the acres of corn they see in the Midwest during growing season could be picked and eaten for dinner, or dried and popped. In fact, those acres are typically field corn, which is used largely for livestock feed, and differs from both sweet corn and popcorn. • The peak period for popcorn sales for home consumption is in the fall. • Most popcorn comes in two basic shapes

when it's popped: snowflake and mushroom. Snowflake is used in movie theaters and ballparks because it looks and pops bigger. Mushroom is used for candy confections because it doesn't crumble. • Popping popcorn is one of the No. 1 uses for microwave ovens. Most microwave ovens have a "popcorn" control button. • "Popability" is popcorn lingo that refers to the percentage of kernels that pop. • There is no such thing as “hull-less” popcorn. All popcorn needs a hull in order to pop. Some varieties of popcorn have been

bred so the hull shatters upon popping, making it appear to be hull-less. • How high popcorn kernels can pop? Up to 3 feet in the air. • The world’s largest popcorn ball was created by volunteers in Sac City, Iowa in February 2009. It weighed 5,000 pounds, stood more than 8 ft. tall, and measured 28.8 feet in circumference. • If you made a trail of popcorn from New York City to Los Angeles, you would need more than 352,028,160 popped kernels!

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Jan. 14, the 14th day of 2013. There are 351 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 14, 1963, George C. Wallace was sworn in as governor of Alabama; his inaugural address included the ringing declaration, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” — a view Wallace came to repudiate in later years. On this date: • In 1784, the United States ratified a peace treaty with England, ending the Revolutionary War. • In 1858, Napoleon III, Emperor of the French, and his wife, Empress Eugenie, escaped an assassination attempt led by Italian revolutionary Felice Orsini, who was later captured and executed. • In 1900, Puccini’s opera “Tosca” had its world premiere in Rome. • In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and French General Charles de Gaulle opened a wartime conference in Casablanca. • In 1952, NBC’s “Today” show premiered, with Dave Garroway as the host, or “communicator.” • In 1953, Josip Broz Tito was elected president of Yugoslavia by the country’s Parliament. • In 1963, Sylvia Plath’s semi-autobiographical novel “The Bell Jar” was published in London under the pen name “Victoria Lucas,” less than a month before Plath committed suicide. • In 1968, the Green Bay Packers of the NFL defeated the AFL’s Oakland Raiders, 33-14, in Super Bowl II. • In 1969, 27 people aboard the aircraft carrier Enterprise, off USS Hawaii, were killed when a rocket warhead exploded, setting off a fire and additional explosions. • In 1973, the Miami Dolphins of the AFC defeated the Washington Redskins of the NFC 14-7 to win Super Bowl VII. (This game featured the notorious “Garo’s Gaffe” by Dolphins kicker Garo Yepremian that resulted in a Redskins touchdown.) • In 1989, President Ronald Reagan delivered his 331st and final weekly White House radio address, telling listeners, “Believe me, Saturdays will never seem the same. I’ll miss you.” • In 1993, TV talk show host David Letterman announced he was moving from NBC to CBS.


‘Death Star’ nixed WASHINGTON (AP) — A "Death Star" won't be a part of the U.S. military's arsenal any time soon. More than 34,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the Obama administration to build the "Star Wars" inspired superweapon to spur job growth and bolster national defense. But in a posting Friday on the White House website, Paul Shawcross, an administration adviser on science and space, says a Death Star would cost too much to build — an estimated $850 quadrillion — at a time the White House is working to reduce the federal budget. Besides, Shawcross says, the Obama administration "does not support blowing up planets."

Jets bomb city BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — French fighter jets bombed rebel targets in a major city in Mali’s north Sunday, pounding the airport as well as training camps, warehouses and buildings used by the alQaida-linked Islamists controlling the area, officials and residents said. The three-day-old Frenchled effort to take back Mali’s north from the extremists began with airstrikes by combat helicopters in the small town of Konna. It has grown to a coordinated attack by state-of-the-art fighter jets which have bombarded at least five towns, of which Gao, which was attacked Sunday afternoon, is the largest. More than 400 French troops have been deployed to

the country in the all-out effort to win back the territory from the well-armed rebels, who seized control of an area larger than France nine months ago. What began as a French offensive has now grown to include seven other countries, including logistical support from the U.S. and Europe. The United States is providing communications and transport help, while Britain is sending C17 aircrafts to help Mali’s allies transport troops to the frontlines. French President Francois Hollande authorized the intervention after it became clear the swiftly advancing rebels could break Mali’s military defenses in Mopti, the first town on the governmentcontrolled side, located in the

center of this African country. The move catapulted the world into a fight that diplomats had earlier said would not take place until at least September. “French fighter jets have identified and destroyed this Sunday, Jan. 13, numerous targets in northern Mali near Gao, in particular training camps, infrastructure and logistical depots which served as bases for terrorist groups,” the French defense ministry said in a statement. French officials have acknowledged that the rebels are better armed than they expected, and one of the first AP Photo/Isaac Brekken fatalities was a 41-year-old French pilot, whose helicopter MISS NEW York Mallory was downed by rebel fire near Hytes Hagan reacts as she is the town of Konna. announced Miss America 2013 on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Mabarak to get new trial CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian appeals court on Sunday overturned Hosni Mubarak’s life sentence and ordered a retrial of the ousted leader in the killing of hundreds of protesters, a ruling likely to further unsettle a nation still reeling from political turmoil and complicate the struggle of his Islamist successor to assert his authority. The court’s decision put the spotlight back on the highly divisive issue of justice for Mubarak and his top security officers, who were also ordered retried, two years after the revolution that toppled him. The ruling poses a distraction for President Mohammed Morsi as he tries to restore law and order, grapple with a wrecked economy and deal with the aftermath of the worst political crisis since Mubarak’s ouster. A new trial is virtually certain to dominate national headlines, attracting attention away from a crucial election for a new house of deputies roughly three months from now. Morsi and his Islamist allies are determined to win a comfortable majority in the new chamber, allowing them to take the helm of the most populous Arab nation. The ailing 84-year-old Mubarak is currently being held in a military hospital and will not walk free after Sunday’s decision. He remains under investigation in an unrelated case. A small crowd of Mubarak loyalists erupted into ap-

EGYPTIANS SUPPORTERS of ousted former President Hosni Mubarak celebrate an appeal granted by a court, in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday. A court granted Mubarak’s appeal of his life sentence in a Sunday hearing, ordering a retrial of the ousted Egyptian president on charges that he failed to prevent the killing of hundreds of protesters during the uprising that toppled his regime nearly two years ago. plause after the ruling was announced. Holding portraits of the former president aloft, they broke into chants of “Long live justice!” Another jubilant crowd later gathered outside the Nileside Cairo hospital where Mubarak is being held, passing out candies to pedestri-

ans and motorists. Still, the crowds paled in comparison to the immediate reaction to Mubarak’s conviction and sentencing in June, when thousands took to the streets, some in celebration and others in anger that he escaped the death penalty.

Thousands protest adoption ban MOSCOW (AP) — Thousands of people marched through Moscow on Sunday to protest Russia’s new law banning Americans from adopting Russian children, a far bigger number than expected in a sign that outrage over the ban has breathed some life into the dispirited anti-Kremlin opposition movement. Shouting “shame on the scum,” protesters carried posters of President Vladimir Putin and members of Russia’s parliament who overwhelmingly voted for the law last month. Up to 20,000 took part in the demonstration on a frigid, gray afternoon. The adoption ban has stoked the anger of the same middle-class, urban professionals who swelled the protest ranks last winter, when more than 100,000 people turned out for rallies to demand free elections and an end to Putin’s 12 years in power. Since Putin began a third presidential term in May, the protests

have flagged as the opposition leaders have struggled to provide direction and capitalize on the broad discontent. Opponents of the adoption ban argue it victimizes children to make a political point. Eager to take advantage of this anger, the anti-Kremlin opposition has played the ban as further evidence that Putin and his parliament have lost the moral right to rule Russia. The Kremlin, however, has used the adoption controversy to further its efforts to discredit the opposition as unpatriotic and in the pay of the Americans. Sunday’s march may prove only a blip on what promises to be a long road for the protest movement, especially in the face of Kremlin efforts to stifle dissent. But it was a reunion of what has become known as Moscow’s creative class, whose sarcastic wit was once again on display on Sunday.

Online activist dies in NY NEW YORK (AP) — Computer prodigy Aaron Swartz, who helped develop RSS and co-founded Reddit, has been found dead weeks before he was to go on trial on federal charges that he stole millions of scholarly articles in an attempt to make them freely available to the public. Swartz, 26, hanged himself in his Brooklyn apartment, his family in Chicago confirmed in a statement Saturday. He was pronounced dead Friday evening at home in the Crown Heights neighborhood,

Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for New York’s chief medical examiner, said. As a young teenager, Swartz helped create RSS, a family of Web feed formats used to gather updates from blogs, news headlines, audio and video for users. He cofounded the social news website Reddit, which was later sold to Conde Nast, as well as the political action group Demand Progress, which campaigns against Internet censorship. A zealous advocate of pub-

lic online access, Swartz was extolled Saturday by those who believed as he did. He was “an extraordinary hacker and activist,” the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international nonprofit digital rights group based in California wrote in a tribute on its home page. “Playing Mozart’s Requiem in honor of a brave and brilliant man,” tweeted Carl Malamud, an Internet public domain advocate who believes in free access to legally obtained files.

Small town girl is Miss America LAS VEGAS (AP) — From a hometown of 26,000 people to an adopted home borough of 2.6 million, Miss America’s story includes a journey from a small town to the big city — but it doesn’t start there. Mallory Hagan, 23, moved from Alabama to New York City as soon as she became a legal adult, and though she says she left because “I needed to find myself,” it turns out she knew who she wanted to be all along. “When Mallory was like 13 years old she was sitting on my deck and said, ‘Miss Tina, my goal is one day I’d like to grow up to be Miss America,’” said Tina Gunnels, a neighbor from Opelika, Ala., on Sunday. “She accomplished that goal.” Hagan took the crown Saturday night after tap dancing to a James Brown tune, deftly answering a question about gun violence in schools and raising the issue of child sexual abuse in her contestant platform. Hagan, who resides in New York’s most-populous borough of Brooklyn, said she was sure someone else would take the top prize, even after she made it to the final two contestants. She said she was standing on the stage thinking, “They’re going to get another first runner-up photo of me.” Her father was not nearly so modest. “We’re super excited, super exhilarated, super proud of her,” Phil Hagan said in an interview with The Associated Press backstage immediately after his daughter’s victory. “We’re not extremely surprised, either.” Mallory Hagan, however, has been competing on the pageant circuit for a decade and nearly aged out of the system without ever having won at a state or national level. The Miss America competition accepts contestants between the ages of 17 and 24. Hagan says she moved to New York on her own at 18 years old with less than $1,000 in her pocket. She tried for the Miss New York title in 2010 and 2011 before winning last year. The transition wasn’t always easy. “The struggle was vast,” she said. “There were days when I had five bucks in my pocket. And I would push that $5” between subway fare and meal money. But the decision was one she felt compelled to make. “I just knew that the energy of NYC was something that I really loved,” she told the AP after her victory. “I was always a little more liberal-thinking than my hometown. And I just knew that I needed to get out for a little bit, and I needed to find myself.”

STAINED SILVERWARE Dear Heloise: I have some everyday silverware that looks stained. Every morning, I drink my coffee and add creamer with a spoon. I then set the spoon down and enjoy my cup of joe.

This is also my first marriage, and it isn’t easy being the “instant mother� of an active 12-year-old. —Stepmother, Toronto, Ontario STEPMOTHER: I urge you to relax and focus on more than just chores and punishment. Chores are important, but so is bonding and building trust. No matter what, becoming the “instant mother� of an “almost� teenager — especially one who has lost a mother — is going to be enormously challenging. Starting with her own special space — her room — was an excellent idea, and she sounds well adjusted to it. Organizing and picking out the bedspread together has started the bonding process and you learned a bit about her interests, taste in cloth-

ing, etc., while participating in a useful activity that involves interaction. Give positive reinforcement and let Kristin know that she’s learning and gaining your approval. In a context that is encouraging and nonjudgmental, you can teach and demonstrate how to do things correctly and keep criticism to a minimum. You could suggest that she load the dishwasher, take out the garbage and then work on her homework for an hour. Then she could take a break from homework to put the dishes away. You should continue to have Kristin finish her chores. If you do a child’s chores, you are telling her that she is incapable of doing a good job, thus lowering her self-esteem.

(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You’re highly convincing today. This is a wonderful day for those who sell, market, teach, act or need to persuade others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be careful shopping today, because you might be obsessed with trying to buy something. “I have to have it!� Keep your receipts. Keep a level head. This same driving impulse might influence you in other financial matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be fascinated by or infatuated with a new encounter today. Powerful subconscious drives are triggered within you. Be careful! Don’t do anything you will later regret. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Secret love affairs definitely are taking place for some of you today. Be

careful. Why blow a steady relationship for a passing bonbon? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A friend could become a lover today. Or perhaps you might develop a crush on someone in a group situation, and no one knows except you. (We’ve all been there.) YOU BORN TODAY It’s important for you to feel that you have given your best. And you want acknowledgment for this; then this acknowledgment reinforces you so that you continue to your next goal. You are hardworking and diligent as you constantly seek bigger goals and bigger rewards. In your year ahead, a major change will take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: A.J. Foyt, racecar driver/owner; Susan Sontag, author; Sade, singer.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, January 14, 2013

BY JIM DAVIS Civitas Media TROY — Etta May has her own prescription for beating the winter blues: just lighten up and laugh a little bit. She’ll be dispensing the “cure” Jan. 25 when May and fellow comedians Sonya White and Karen Mills bring their own special brand of levity to Troy for the Southern Fried Chicks Comedy Tour at Hobart Arena. “People want to laugh and they need a break,” she said. “It’s (going to be) a giant party, and everybody that comes to it is going to wish they were a Southern Fried Chick. We’re going to show you a little bit of our crazy lives. It’s a blast.” A familiar face on television and on the standup comedy circuit, May has forged a loyal following with her down-home, southern-style humor. She’s been featured on Showtime, CMT, the Bob and Tom radio show and XM and Sirius Radio, and was named Female Comic of the Year by The Comedy American Awards. She’ll be joined by White and Mills for a 90minute comedy show that will feature a variety of topics tied together with a southern thread. “Although we’re all southerners, we’re all from different aspects of being southerners,” she explained. “I represent the typical white trash. But there are the very sexy and sharp southern women, and then there are the crazy southern women. And what’s great is you’ll get all aspects. We don’t do a lot of male bashing, so what’s great is, guys like us, too.” She said the Southern Fried Chicks tour — which formed about six years ago and has featured different lineups over the years — allows each of the participants to share the spotlight. “When we do the Southern Fried Chicks, we’re working with two or three other headliners and not a one of us has to have the responsibility of carrying the show,” May said. “We’re past that point of ego or trying to outdo each other. It’s like hanging out with your best friends. “Sonya is weird because she can do any impression. She does a lot of impressions and can sing and do comedy, so she’s hilarious,” she continued. “And Karen represents the intellectual type — the urban southerner. She has very smart humor. So that’s what’s nice — we’re throwing three different aspects at you. It’s not just a bunch of dumb southerners.” While May said she loves doing what she does for a living, it isn’t all chuckles and gags. There is a serious side to what she does. “It’s very strange. As a performer, a lot of times you just feel like ‘poof’ — when you get done with a performance, you go ‘yea, i did a good show and made people happy. But it’s just gone,” she said. “I can remember driving around town with my dad and him pointing at a building and saying ‘Your grandpa built that, and it’s standing there and it’s a part of him and he

May said she made the decision to pursue comedy several years ago when she discovered the magic of laughter. “What feels good to me is, I kind of knew what my path in life was … that I was going to work at a factory, I was going to get pregnant and live a lower income life,” she said. “The thing that made me take a chance at becoming a stand-up comedian is, I’m at the bottom of the barrel. I can’t go any further down. Why not try to do something special? “I don’t think a lot of people feel special in this world, and doing standup makes me feel special,” she continued. “I get to do something that not everybody can do. It’s not an ego thing, but I do get to go to sleep at night and say that I do something that 90 percent of people can’t do, so that has brought joy to my life. “It’s such a magical thing to make people laugh.” Tickets are $25, $16 and $12 and can be obtained from the Hobart Arena website ( or by calling the arena box office at 339-2911.

RAVENNA (AP) — George Dunckel started selling classroom furniture before Joe Louis lost a heavyweight title fight in 1950. It’s a landmark in time that helps “Uncle Dunckel” remember the old days, when “schools appreciated having someone come around,” he said. Back then, schools bolted solid wooden desks — with inkwells and cast-iron frames — to the floor. Tables had to be stacked instead of folded. And salesmen made personal visits instead of phone calls. Over the years, more than furniture changed, but Dunckel, who made every sale with a nod and a handshake up until his retirement on New Year’s Eve, took pride in doing business the oldfashioned way. “I’m like a car that has 350,000 miles on it,” Dunckel said of his 67 years in the retail business. At 91 years old, Dunckel leans on a cane to shoulder the weight of his sales materials, which he lugged from his Mercury to his customers for decades. Time has taken a toll on his body, but with a pressed collar and a straight tie, his mind is as sharp as his wardrobe. Dunckel, who sold furniture to the Ravenna school district for more than a half-century, figures he has seen about three or four generations of superintendents and school business managers come and go. But he remembers

every one of them, as well as their hobbies and family. “It’s all about developing relationships,” said Ray Nist, who retired in 2010 as business manager of North Canton schools. Nist first worked with Dunckel in 1992 as business manager for Tallmadge schools. After 18 years of making deals with Dunckel, Nist said, he got more than a receipt with every transaction: He got “service.” When an order arrived, Dunckel was there to make sure the customer was satisfied. It’s one of many courtesies that make a great salesman, Nist said. “That still holds true today,” he said, “But George got to know people on a personal level.” Dunckel did all the little things that made a difference. To shield his customers from losses caused by damage in transit, he trained school custodians on unloading, assembling and inspecting shipments. When visiting a school, he would pick up a stray pencil on the hallway floor and drop it off in the office with a smile. He jotted down each customer’s birthday on a Rolodex card next to a land line or — some years later — a cellphone number. “You don’t have that (service) anymore,” said Hank Dunckel, George’s son and owner of Dunckel Distributing Co. on Washington Avenue in Ravenna.

With generations of salesmen, furniture became a Dunckel family tradition. Hank Dunckel remembers using one of his father’s samples, a scaled-down replica of a window shade, for a class demonstration in high school. Growing up, he recalls used furniture littering the house. Hank Dunckel launched his business in his father’s footsteps in the same building George used in the early 1970s. “I took over the phone bill and the rent,” Hank Dunckel said. He took over his father’s customers, manufacturers and distributors, too. “If I needed help with a certain contact, I could call Dad.” George, whom customers cordially called Uncle Dunckel, married his wife of 71 years in 1941. He finally retired this year so that he could take care of her; otherwise, he said, he would have kept selling till the day he died. After returning from the war in Europe in 1945, he took a job with the F.W. Woolworth Co. as a manager-in-training. Then, he worked as a sales representative for Quaker Oats from 1950 to 1955. During that time, he sold furniture on the side to General Electric (NYSE:GE) and made his first sale to a school district in Schenectady, N.Y., about two hours south of where he grew up near the Vermont border of upstate New York.

CVSL to acquire stake Lottery winner wants in Longaberger to provide toilet paper NEWARK (AP) — A Texas company plans to acquire a controlling stake in a longtime central Ohio basket-making company that has seen sales and employment dip in recent years. Newark-based The Longaberger Co. and Dallas-based Computer Vision Systems Laboratories Corp., or CVSL, have signed a letter of intent for CVSL to acquire a controlling voting interest in the company known for its handcrafted baskets, home and lifestyle products — including pottery. The companies made the announcement Friday. Longaberger, which is also known for its iconic basket-shaped home office, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. It had $1 billion in sales and 8,000 employees in 2000. It now has about $100 million in annual sales, according to the trade publication Direct Selling News, and fewer than 1,000 employees at last count, The Columbus Dispatch reported. Longaberger President and CEO Tami Longaberger told the company’s annual sales force meeting that she intends to transfer her majority share in the company and said in a release that “this is the perfect partnership for us.” She said the acquisition would provide more capital and opportunity for improvements and allow employees to become shareholders. Longaberger wrote in a letter to the sales force that one of her father’s

dreams “was to make it possible for all of our extended family to own a piece of this company we love,” The (Newark) Advocate reported “I have found a creative way for Longaberger to be part of a public company while preserving 100 percent of our identity.” Terms of the deal were not disclosed but will be negotiated in the coming weeks, said Russell Mack, a spokesman for CVSL and Longaberger. The deal would require lender, shareholder and regulatory approvals. CVSL will be a “docking station” for Longaberger and other direct-selling companies, and more shipping or manufacturing operations from other CVSL companies could be added to the Longaberger facilities, he said. Mack, who said that Longaberger has a great location, said there is “a great possibility that over time, jobs can be created in the area for CVSL using currently underused Longaberger facilities.” The companies could not immediately be reached for comment Sunday. A security guard said Longaberger offices were closed. A message was left for a telephone listing for CVSL. The Longaberger headquarters office is in Licking County, and County Commissioner Tim Bubb said he hopes any change in majority ownership will help the company survive and thrive.

HAMILTON (AP) — One of Ohio’s newest milliondollar lottery winners has toilet paper on her mind as she makes plans to give some money to help others. Regina Jackson says memories are fresh of the aid received when she was out of work for seven months after being laid off in 2008. She got a lot of help from Reach Out Lakota, a nonprofit organization that helps provide food, clothing and other necessities to the needy in Butler County in southwest Ohio. She says the organization provided badly needed food to her and her mother, now 81, until she was called back to her customer service job. “If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have been eating,” Jackson, 60, of Hamilton, said. “My mother, who I live with, had enough to cover the rent, the gas, the electric, the phone, but not the food.” They got toilet paper there, too, but only two rolls a month along with a roll of paper towels. Jackson told The Cincinnati Enquirer that she would like to donate a whole truckload of toilet paper to Reach Out Lakota, but will give money instead. She also plans to donate to the Faith Community United Methodist Church in West Chester, which also helped her and her mother. “We are very appreciative for the help we received,” said Doris Dromboski, her mother. “Why wouldn’t we want to give back. It is just the right thing to do, so they can provide food for someone else in need.” Jackson also plans to make donations to animal welfare groups. She expects to receive $710,000 after taxes. She was one of four winners of the New Year’s Raffle in Ohio, after matching all six numbers with a computer-generated pick. She bought the ticket at a Meijer retail store and was stunned when a cashier told her how much it had won for her. “I am still in shock,” she said. Said her mother: “I had been praying for some extra money, but I wasn’t praying for that much.” ——— Information from: The Cincinnati Enquirer,

Ohio Farm Bureau honoree draws from past, looks to the future and eggs for local customers, and uses the opto teach portunity non-farm customers who like to buy local about today’s agriculture. “It brings people closer to the farm, and we tell them what we’re doing on our operation, explain how we use GPS and other technologies, and even give an occasional tractor ride,” he said. “It really helps them connect with agriculture.” McGlinch has been active in a number of community activities, Farm Bureau being primary, where he has been a board member. “Farm Bureau has been a real help to me,” he said. “As a result of Farm Bureau, I have a network of contacts across Ohio and the nation, which is a great resource to me in my work.” Angie Otte is a financial services officer with Farm Credit’s Versailles office, and she said that she and McGlinch frequently find themselves at the same farm events, with McGlinch working the soil and water aspects, and she, ag financial services. “Greg is very deserving of winning this award for excellence,” she said. “He’s a great resource to farmers in this community.” While McGlinch has a passion for agriculture, conservation and educating others — both in and outside of agriculture — he has some significant other reasons for the things he does. “We do a lot of conservation practices on our farm, and part of that is because that I want to protect our resources for future generations,” he said. “I want to leave our farm in better shape than we found it so that our kids (he and Janet just had their fourth child) can look forward to a good future.”

Fairlawn FFA receives Food For Thought grant On Dec. 14, the Fairlawn FFA was rewarded with a $500 dollar Food For Thought Grant from the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program. The purpose of the grant is to incorporate healthy eating initiatives and programs in schools throughout Ohio. Only seven FFA chapters in Ohio were rewarded with this grant. In order to receive the grant, the chapter had to write a proposal for a healthy eating program to implement. The chapter plans on purchasing a Hydroponics Unit to grow crops using water media and implement a learning program for elementary students and students enrolled in the plant science course.

VERSAILLES — For Ohio Farm Bureau Excellence in Agriculture winner Greg McGlinch, a passion for agriculture comes pretty naturally. “I’m the fifth generation of our family on the farm, so you might say it’s just tradition,” said McGlinch, of Versailles. “It’s something I’ve always enjoyed and something I want to share with our kids. I also want to do what I can to let everyone know what’s going on in agriculture.” The award, which McGlinch, 32, won at the recent Ohio Farm Bureau Convention, recognizes successful individuals, 35 or younger, who are involved in production agriculture, but for whom farming is not their primary occupation. The Excellence in Agriculture Program, which is sponsored by Farm Credit Mid-America, recognizes farm involvement as well as participation in Farm Bureau and other comorganizations. munity McGlinch will compete with other state winners for national honors at the American Farm Bureau Federation National Convention in Nashville, Tenn. that began Sunday. For winning the Ohio award, McGlinch received a John Deere Gator, compliments of Farm Credit. McGlinch is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in agricultural education. In his position as a manure and n u t r i e n t management/urban technician with the Darke County Soil and Water Conservation District, he works with livestock producers and crop farmers to develop best practices on their operations. Increasingly his role includes educating them about emerging conservation practices, like cover crops. He also advises municipalities on storm water management and related practices. McGlinch is currently working on a master’s degree in agronomy from OSU. In addition to his SWCD responsibilities, McGlinch and his wife, Janet, farm with Greg’s parents, Gary and Sharon McGlinch. The farm produces corn, soybeans, wheat, rye and clover, but Greg also uses the farm as a laboratory of sorts to try different cover crops and conservation practices. This helps him in his SWCD responsibilities to be able to assist other farmers from his own firsthand experience. In addition, McGlinch raises hogs for freezer pork, as well as chickens

Sidney Daily News, Monday, January 14, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a pleasant day. You feel content with the world. Because you’ve been so high-viz lately, today you would like to hide. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Discussions with others in group situations, especially females, will be inspirational. Someone from another culture or a different country might open your eyes to a new way of seeing life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The details of your private life, especially about how someone assists or helps you, might be made public today. Just be aware of this, in case it’s private. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You would like to escape somewhere today to do something different. Visit someplace beautiful, or take a walk in the park. Let your surroundings inspire you! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Stay in touch with your bank account today. Find out how much money you don’t have. Information is power. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today, because the Moon is opposite your sign. It’s simply a matter of gentle compromise. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Focus on getting better organized today. Although you are inclined to daydream, you still want to pull your act together. Set aside 15 minutes to do some serious tidying. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A playful, flirtatious day! Enjoy sports events, playful times with children, romantic liaisons and anything related to the arts. A great day for pleasure and relaxation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It will please you if you have a chance to cocoon at home today. You want to pull in and withdraw a bit so that you can ponder profundity. (It’s crazy out there!) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) In discussions with others, you will go with your hunches today. You feel greater trust in your emotions than in your intellect, at least for now. You also can be a good listener to siblings and neighbors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If shopping, you’ll be emotionally influenced by whatever you see. I suggest that you keep your receipts and try to make your purchases as sensible as possible. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The Moon is in your sign today, dancing beautifully with Mercury. This blesses all your conversations with others and helps you to intuit what others want to know. YOU BORN TODAY It’s curious, but as a child you had heroes and as an adult others view you as heroic (despite what you think). You are idealistic and rebellious. This combination often puts you at the helm of energy directed toward correct wrongs in society. You also are pleasure-loving. In the year ahead, work hard to build or construct something, because your rewards will soon follow. Birthdate of: Andrea Martin, actress; James Nesbitt, actor; Martin Luther King Jr., civil-rights leader. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

ANSWER: Irritable Dietary changes are bowel syndrome is a com- tricky, because what mon condition that en- works for one person may compasses one or more of make someone else worse.

For example, fiber helps many people with constipation symptoms, but may worsen people who have fullness and bloating. Broccoli and onions are frequent triggers, as is caffeine. Keeping a food diary and a symptom diary can be helpful in tracking down whether foods are a big trigger. In your case, I would concern yourself with the foods you’ve eaten during breakfast and lunch, especially caffeine. However, since stress can make a big impact on symptoms, I wonder if work stress may be part of your issue. Also, I have had a few patients who developed IBS symptoms after gallbladder removal, and the use of the prescription medication cholestyramine, which binds bile acids (formerly kept in the now-removed gallbladder), occasionally has been life-changing. Having a talk with an expert in this, usually a gastroenterologist, can be

very helpful. TO READERS: The booklet on colon cancer provides useful information on the causes and cures of this common malady.

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

Stivers outguns Sidney Even though it didn’t produce a win for the Sidney Yellow Jackets Saturday night at home, head coach Greg Snyder was much more pleased with his team’s performance over Friday’s loss to Greenville. The Jackets led at halftime, 42-38, but couldn’t keep Stivers from putting up a lot of points in the second half en route to a 90-79 victory for the visitors in non-league boys basketball action. The loss left the Jackets at 2-11 going into an interesting weekend. Friday, they take on high-powered Trotwood in league play. Then on Saturday comes the crosstown shootout with Lehman, this year in the Sidney gym. “We played better, and the effort was definitely better,” said Snyder. “Defensively, we were actually a lot better, but they were just unconscious in their shooting. And there were times when we couldn’t get back on defense. And we went through a stretch late in the third quarter and early in the fourth when we just turned the ball over too much. And they capitalized. I think if we would have made the extra pass, we could have done better.” Sidney had no answer for Stivers’ Rodrick Caldwell, who went for 34 points and rang up six three-pointers. And he did not score at all in the first quarter. Sidney’s Tyree Manley was outstanding again at the offensive end. After hitting a pair of threes in the opening quarter, he exploded for 15 points in the second quarter to give him 21 by the half. But Stivers held him to five points in the second half and just one field goal. James Daniel and Connor

Bucks hand Wolves 1st loss COLUMBUS (AP) — Deshaun Thomas had 20 points and scored the first and last baskets in a 16-0 first-half spurt and No. 15 Ohio State beat second-ranked Michigan 56-53 on Sunday, probably denying the Wolverines their first No. 1 ranking in more than 20 years. After Trey Burke, who led the Wolverines (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) with 15 points, hit a 3pointer to open the game, the Buckeyes took the lead for good although there were many nervous moments by the finish. Burke had a shot to tie the game with 17 seconds left, but it rattled around and out. Lenzelle Smith Jr. then hit two foul shots with 12.7 seconds left and Aaron Craft added two more to seal the outcome for the Buckeyes (133, 2-2). The loss also prevented Michigan from setting a school mark for fastest start. The 1985-86 team had also opened with 16 wins. Down 21 in the first half, Michigan kept chipping away. The Wolverines switched defenses, causing the Buckeyes problems with matchup zones. With just over 11 minutes left, Burke had a chance to cut the lead to six points but Shannon Scott closed fast to block his breakaway layup. At the other end, Thomas made a 3 for an 11-point lead. But the Wolverines kept applying the pressure. Tim Hardaway, who had 12 points, scored on two slashes through the lane, Jordan Morgan hit a free throw and

OHIO STATE'S DeShaun Thomas, left, tries to slow down Michigan's Glenn Robinson III, right, during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game on Sunday in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio State won 56-53. Hardaway then hustled back in transition to throw down an alley-oop pass from Burke. After a nice defensive play stopped Smith, Burke pulled up and hit a 15-footer. Hardaway then pumped in a long 3 from the top of the key behind a pick to narrow the gap to 4443 as the clock ticked under 7 minutes. Moments later, Glenn

Robinson III was open for a 3 from the right wing to tie it at 46. The Buckeyes regained some momentum when Shannon Scott fed post player Evan Ravenel for a dunk to regain the lead. On the next possession, Ohio State went inside again and Ravenel, averaging 6.3 points a game, bulled his way for another

bucket. After another Michigan missed shot, Thomas took a pass on the left baseline and made a quick spin to the endline before banking in a shot for a 52-46 lead. The Wolverines missed six straight field-goal attempts in a row down the stretch, going scoreless for more than 4 minutes until Burke hit two free throws with 1:37 left to cut the lead to 52-48. A steal and dunk by Robinson made it 52-50 with 1:16 left. Thomas, the Big Ten’s leading scorer, missed an off-balance jumper from 15 feet with 50 seconds left. After a timeout to discuss strategy, the Wolverines worked the ball around before Burke’s shot with 17 seconds left. It rattled around and then ricocheted out, with Ohio State’s Smith rebounding. He was fouled, but the Buckeyes still weren’t in the bonus. Smith was fouled again on the inbounds pass and converted both foul shots with 12.7 seconds left. After Burke missed a long shot, Craft was fouled with 6.2 seconds remaining and hit two more free throws. "He got a heck of a look at it," Matta said of Burke's shot. Burke closed the scoring with a banked-in 3 from in front of the Michigan bench. The Buckeyes played perhaps their best of the season in the opening 15 minutes. After Burke hit a 3 on Michigan’s first trip down the court, the Wolverines went 7:18 without a point.

LIMA — The Lehman Cavaliers went on the road and lost to a good Lima Temple Christian squad 60-44 in action Saturday night. The loss leaves the Cavs at 5-7 on the year heading into Saturday’s big game at crosstown rival Sidney. “Lima Temple was a well-coached team and shot the ball well,” said Lehman head coach Isaiah Williams. “They defended well, and we got off to a slow start. We battled back, but they were at the free throw line a lot, and that made it tough.” Lehman was unable to overcome Temple’s 207 advantage at the free throw line. Jackson Frantz had 14 to lead the Cavaliers, who also had three players with eight or more points.

JACKSON CENTER’S Pauline Meyer (left) uses her free hand to help keep Botkins’ Hannah Koch back

in County girls basketball action at Botkins on Saturday.

Botkins girls use big 2nd half to beat JC BOTKINS — The Botkins Lady Trojans hit just 4-for-27 from the field in the first half, 15 percent, and found trailing themselves Jackson Center by nine at the intermission. But they came out and scored 35 points in the second half to claim a 46-37 victory in County girls basketball Saturday at Botkins. Botkins is now 4-3 in the league and 8-6 overall and plays at Bellefontaine tonight. Jackson Center falls to 1-8 in County play and 2-12 overall and is at Waynesfield Tuesday. “We started taking much better shots in the second half,” said Lady Trojan coach Don Mack. “Our shot selection in the first half was not very good. And once we started scoring, the energy level got much better.” Logan Pitts had 18 to lead Botkins, and hit 6for-6 from the free throw line. Hannah Meyer had 10 to lead Jackson, which had seven threes to none for Botkins in the game. Botkins was 14-for-20 from the line, including 11-for-14 in the second half. The junior varsity game was a thriller, with Jackson Center’s Chelsea Finkenbine grabbing an offensive rebound and putting it in at the buzzer for a 35-33 victory.
