TODAY’S THOUGHT “Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.” — From “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen (17751817) For more on today in history, turn to Page 5.

Sidney, Ohio

Several Shelby County officials and others have been named in an 18-count federal lawsuit filed by a Sidney man suspected of killing his brother but whose case was dismissed because the defendant suffered from “life threatening” health issues. William L. Trapp claims those he

named in the lawsuit were “grossly negligent” and falsely imprisoned him. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Ohio, Western Division in Dayton, against the following: former Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel, Shelby County Common Pleas Court Judge James Stevenson, former Shelby County Prosecutor

Ralph Bauer, Ohio Attorney General (AG) Mike DeWine, AG Special Prosecutor Chris Wagner, current Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart and Montgomery County cold case special investigators Larry Kincaid and William Wertz. Also named are Shelby County Sheriff ’s Deputies Lt. Det. James Frye and Joanie Henry, as well as See TRAPP/Page 2

Explosion injures 3 Fire marshal’s office seeks cause of incident BY TOM BARNETT The Ohio Fire Marshal’s office and Sidney fire department personnel are investigating the cause of Friday night’s explosion and fire that severely damaged the Stolle Avenue plant of Protecpac USA (IVEX Protective Packaging), injuring three workers. No loss estimate to the facility and its contents was available Sunday as investigation of the incident continued. Residents in the area reported hearing a loud noise and feeling their homes shake as the blast occurred. Sidney fire and rescue personnel were dispatched to the business at 456 S. Stolle Ave. at 10:52 p.m. Friday. On arrival, they found two sides of the southeast end of the building had been blown out and that three workers who had been inside the plant at the time of the blast had been injured. Firefighters entered the building, which was still burning, and a box alarm was dispatched to recall all off-duty personnel. The Anna fire department was dispatched for mutual aid at the blast scene and to standby at local fire stations. A total of 22 Sidney and eight Anna firefighters responded during the operation. No firefighters were injured. Two workers were transported to Wilson Memorial Hospital by Sidney paramedics and were released after being SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg treated for minor burns.

Kimpel responds to AG’s lawsuit BY KATHY LEESE Attorneys for former Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel deny that he has been “unjustly enriched” by receiving a salary while suspended from office and have filed a response to a lawsuit against Kimpel by the Shelby County Commissioners. He claims the county has no right to recoup his salary and makes a counterclaim and demands a jury trial. Michael Rumer and Andrea Brown of Rumer and Maisch Co., LLC, Lima, filed the response on behalf of Kimpel. Kimpel is being sued on behalf of the County Commissioners by the Ohio Attorney

General’s (AG) Office, which is seeking to recoup the salary that Kimpel was paid while he was suspended from office during a criminal case and subsequent felony conviction. Kimpel’s attorneys argue that the county has no right to recoup Kimpel’s salary under the Ohio Revised Code, although they admit he accepted a suspension with pay in Auglaize County Common Pleas Court in Wapakoneta following his indictment there on a sexual battery charge. They say the indictment in that case was pending until June 8, 2012 when the

case was dismissed as part of a plea bargain agreement. While the attorneys admit Kimpel entered a guilty plea to a charge of unauthorized use of a computer, cable or telecommunications property in Shelby County, they deny “that this is a felony that forms the requisite basis for which (the county) is seeking recoupment …and further states that the sentencing did not occur until June 8, 2012 at which time (Kimpel) tendered his resignation from office as Sheriff.” Kimpel admits in the claim that he was paid $45,659.75 between Oct. 6, See KIMPEL/Page 2

The case had gone cold until reopened by the Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office and Montgomery County Cold Case Unit, resulting in indictments of Trapp and Short on Jan. 24, 2011.

he was indicted on Sept. 21, 2011 in Auglaize County on a charge of sexual battery and accepted the suspension from office, the sexual battery charge was dropped as part of the plea bargain and it was the sexual battery charge under which the suspension was obtained and under which the AG’s Office is suing for the recoupment of his salary. Kimpel is also asking for “reasonable attorney fees and expenses and costs and for any other relief‌.to which (Kimpel) may be entitled.â€? Kimpel’s attorneys also seek a jury trial in the case. A telephone conference on the case has been scheduled for Feb. 7 at 8:30 a.m. in Shelby County Common Pleas Court. While Judge James Stevenson is listed as the Judge of record, his office told the Sidney Daily News they are uncertain if he will recuse himself from the case until the telephone conference is held. He had previously recused himself from Kimpel’s criminal case. Kimpel was found guilty of one count of unauthorized use of a computer, cable or telecommunications property, a fifth degree felony, and was sentenced to two years probation at his sentencing on June 8, 2012.

From Page 1 brother’s $200,000 life insurance policy. In January 2012, murder charges against Trapp were dismissed with prejudice, allowing for them to possibly be re-filed in the future. The lawsuit makes several claims and is filed on the basis of the following: • Deprivation of Civil Rights under the Fourth, Fifth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution • False arrest • Malicious prosecution • Negligence/Reckless/Wanton/Willfull Disability pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code • Intentional Misconduct, Negligence, Medical Malpractice/Medical Claims (Deliberate Indifference to Serious Medical Conditions). • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and Conspiracy. Trapp’s attorney, Dwight Brannon of Brannon and Associates Inc. of Dayton, noted in the lawsuit that Trapp first discussed the case with his office on Jan. 7 of this year and the file from Trapp’s public defender, now Shelby County Prosecutor Tim Sell, was provided on Jan. 10. “So a complete investigation and review has not been even close to complete. This complaint is filed in order to preserve the Statute of Limitations.â€? It was noted that Trapp “appears to be subject to disability.â€? The lawsuit asks for compensatory damages in an amount greater than $25,000, punitive damages in an an amount greater than $25,000 and costs of ac-

Wolfe said the company uses isobutane to expand plastic in manufacturing a foam product used in packaging. DP&L.,Vectren Energy Delivery and the Sidney water department were able to secure all utility services to the building. “There was an explosion in the processing side oft the plant, said Assistant Fire Chief Cameron Haller. “The plant’s sprinkler system kept the fire in check and we extinguished it with a hand line when we arrived, he said� Haller also said the sprinkler system and safety procedures established by the business kept the building from burning to the ground. “When something like this happens, I mean you’re really unprepared for it,� said Terry Stotler, plant supervisor. “It’s kinda like a house fire. I mean you get caught by surprise and you’re doing everything you can to make sure everyone’s safe.� Stotler said he is not sure where the plant will go, since there are a lot of elements to consider. The company, owned by IVEX Protective Packaging Inc., is headquartered in Lachine, Canada. IVEX operates two plants in Sidney, with a total of 45 employees. Records show Sidney firefighters have previously responded to two fire alarms from the location in 2012 — in March and July — and two fires were reported there in March of 2010.

tion, including reasonable attorney fees. The suit also seeks to have the defendants pay Trapp’s medical bills. Among may other claims, the lawsuit alleges that Trapp was inc a r c e r a t e d “unnecessarily� for “almost a year� on an “unconstitutional(ly) high bond of $1,000,000.� The lawsuit claims that both Kimpel and Bauer used prosecution of the case to promote their campaigns for reelection and that the AG’s office and cold case detectives were “attempting to maintain and request funding for their cold case program by this prosecution as well as others upon information and belief.� The suit also claims that a “delay in investigation, prosecution, incarceration, indictment and then dismissal without prejudice one year later� were a violation of Trapp’s civil rights and Constitutional rights. Shelby County Prosecutor Tim Sell, who represents the county and local officials in their official capacities, was the public defender at the time of Trapp’s indictment and subsequent incarceration. When contacted Friday, he said that because he represented Trapp previously, there would be a conflict of interest with his involvement in the case now. “I will be talking to the (Shelby County) Commissioners about this lawsuit and what their options are with regard to counsel,� he said. “Obviously, I can’t give them legal advice about the merits of the case.�

‘Tweet seats’ are here PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — You don’t have to turn your smartphone off at the Providence Performing Arts Center — at least not if you’re sitting in the “tweet seats.” The theater is now setting aside a small number of seats for those who promise to live-tweet the performance. Twitter users might offer impressions of the set, music or costumes, or lines from the show that resonate with them. At a recent staging of the musical “Million Dollar Baby,” even a few cast members were tweeting from backstage. A growing number of theaters, including some on Broadway, have been experimenting in recent years with tweet seats and other real-time uses of social media. Some insist theaters should remain free of smartphones, but others say theaters can’t afford not to engage the digital generation.

Shelby County will play host during the 30th annual Ohio Mock Trial District Competition, with two Sidney teams, one Lehman team and three Bellefontaine teams going head-tohead in the courtrooms of downtown Sidney Friday. The teams will take over the Juvenile Court, Common Pleas Court and Municipal Court courtrooms, with two trials set for each during the day. Throughout the state, about 3,500 high school students from more than 180 schools in 31 counties will be competing Friday, making this year’s district competition the largest since 2006. The mock trial competition is sponsored by the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education. It is Ohio’s largest high school academic competition.

Two of the three Sidney High School teams that competed in last year’s district level won their respective competitions and moved on to the regional competitions. Each year, the Center writes an original case based on a current constitutional issue that is designed to educate students about their rights as well as help them develop critical thinking, reading, writing, public speaking and listening skills. Students take on the roles of witnesses and attorneys, while local legal professionals throughout the state volunteer their time to serve as judges, competition coordinators and team advisers. Each team consists of five to 11 students who are required to prepare both prosecution and defense cases and participate in two trials against different teams. This year’s case will have the

students analyze a person’s right under the Fifth Amendment regarding improper confessions. Dakota Allen, a ficticious high school sophomore, is suspected of setting a school fire that resulted in a maintenance worker’s death. While investigating, the police engage in a lengthy interrogation that includes trips to the scene of the crime and the victim’s home. Allen makes a statement claiming responsibility for the fire and is charged with murder and arson. She later recants her confession, alleging the statements were coerced by the police. District winners will advance to the regional competition Feb. 22. The state competition will be March 7-9 in Columbus, and the championship round will be held at the Ohio Statehouse. The winning team will represent Ohio at the National High School Mock Trial Championship in Indianapolis, Ind., in July.

Winter Snow Storms

Word of the Week stationary — standing still; not moving

Newspaper Knowledge Your newspaper will probably publish a summary of the previous week’s weather. What was the average high temperature: The average low temperature? If the temperature were given only in Fahrenheit, convert to Celsius. What was the high Celsius reading: The lowest Celsius reading? What was the precipitation in centimeters?

Winter Storm Safety Tips BEFORE A WINTER STORM: Have a disaster plan and prepare a disaster supplies kit for your home and car. Include a first aid kit, emergency food supply, bottled water, batteryoperated radio, flashlight, protective clothing and blankets. Don't forget, be aware of changing weather. DURING A WINTER STORM: Stay indoors and dress warmly. Eat regularly, because food provides the body with energy for producing its own heat. Also, drink lots of water. If you must go outside, wear layered clothing, mittens and a hat. Watch for signs of hypothermia and frostbite. Remember to keep dry. Always change wet clothing to prevent the loss of body heat. If you must drive, carry a cell phone. Always, keep the gas tank full. Don't forget, let someone know where you’re going, just in case your car gets stuck. If you’re car gets stuck, stay with it and wait for help unless help is visible within 100 yards. Use maps and car mats to stay warm. AFTER A WINTER STORM: Avoid driving until conditions have improved. Avoid overexertion! Heart attacks from shoveling snow are the leading cause of deaths during the winter. Also, check on neighbors to make sure they're OK.

How do winter storms form? Winter storms derive their energy from the clash of two air masses of different temperatures and moisture levels. Winter storms usually form when an air mass of cold, dry, Canadian air moves south and interacts with a warm, moist air mass moving north from the Gulf of Mexico. The point where these two air masses meet is called a front. If cold air advances and pushes away the warm air, it forms a cold front. When warm air advances, it rides up over the denser, cold air mass to form a warm front. If neither air mass advances, it forms a stationary front. How is snow formed? Snow is commonly formed when water vapor undergoes deposition, which is when water vapor changes directly to ice without first becoming a liquid, high in the atmosphere at a temperature of less than 32°F and then falls to the ground. How do blizzards form? A blizzard is a long-lasting snowstorm with very strong winds and intense snowfall. You need three things to have a blizzard: cold air at the surface, lots of moisture and lift. Warm air must rise over cold air. What are snowflakes? Snowflakes are made of ice crystals. Each snowflake is six-sided and

made of as many as 200 ice crystals. Snowflakes form in clouds where the temperature is below freezing. The ice crystals form around tiny bits of dirt that has been carried up into the atmosphere by the wind. As the snow crystals grow, they become heavier and fall toward the ground.

Why is snow white? Bright snow blinds us with its gleaming white color because it reflects beams of white light. Instead of absorbing light, snow's complex structure prevents the light from shining through its lattice formation. A beam of white sunlight entering a snow bank is so quickly scattered by a zillion ice crystals and air pockets that most of the light comes bouncing right back out of the snow bank. What little sunlight is absorbed by snow is absorbed equally over the wavelengths of visible light, thus giving snow its white appearance. So while many natural objects get their blue, red and yellow colors from absorbing light, snow is stuck with its white color because it reflects light.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Jan. 28, the 28th day of 2013. There are 337 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 28, 1813, the novel “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen was first published anonymously in London. On this date: • In 1547, England’s King Henry VIII died; he was succeeded by his 9year-old son, Edward VI. • In 1853, Cuban revolutionary Jose Marti was born in Havana. • In 1909, the United States withdrew its forces from Cuba as Jose Miguel Gomez became president. • In 1915, the United States Coast Guard was created as President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill merging the Life-Saving Service and Revenue Cutter Service. • In 1916, Louis D. Brandeis was nominated by President Woodrow Wilson to the Supreme Court; Brandeis became the court’s first Jewish member. • In 1945, during World War II, Allied supplies began reaching China over the newly reopened Burma Road. • In 1962, the last of Washington, D.C.’s streetcars made its final run. • In 1973, a cease-fire officially went into effect in the Vietnam War. • In 1980, six U.S. diplomats who had avoided being taken hostage at their embassy in Tehran flew out of Iran with the help of Canadian diplomats. • In 1982, Italian antiterrorism forces rescued U.S. Brigadier General James L. Dozier, 42 days after he had been kidnapped by the Red Brigades. • In 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, killing all seven crew members, including schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe. • In 1988, a 13-day standoff in Marion, Utah, between police and a polygamist clan ended in gunfire that killed a state corrections officer and seriously wounded the group’s leader, Addam Swapp. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush, girding the nation for war, said in his State of the Union address that Saddam Hussein had shown “utter contempt” for the world community and had to be held to account; Bush also pledged to help the ailing economy with lower taxes and a stronger health care system.


Dad forgets son in car COLONIE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a New York man who left his 1-year-old son in his car for eight hours in frigid weather only realized his mistake after a call from his wife. Police in the Albany suburb of Colonie say the man forgot to drop off his son at day care and left the child strapped in the back seat of the car when he parked outside his office Thursday morning. Officials say the man received a call from his wife at about 4 p.m. inquiring about their child. He called for an ambulance and the boy was checked out at a hospital and released. Police say the baby didn’t suffer any injuries despite temperatures that didn’t top 15 degrees. Police said Friday they haven't determined if the father would be charged.

Fire claims 230 lives BY MARCO SIBAJA The Associated Press SANTA MARIA, Brazil (AP) — A fast-moving fire roared through a crowded nightclub in southern Brazil early Sunday, within seconds filling the space with flames and a thick, toxic smoke that killed more than 230 panicked partygoers who gasped for breath and fought in a stampede to escape. It appeared to be the world’s deadliest nightclub fire in more than a decade. Firefighters responding to the blaze at first had trouble getting inside the Kiss nightclub because bodies partially blocked the club’s entryway. Witnesses said a flare or firework lit by band members started the blaze in Santa Maria, a university city of about 260,000 people. Officials at a news conference said the cause was still under investigation — though police inspector Sandro Meinerz told the Agencia Estado news agency the band was to blame for a pyrotechnics show and that manslaughter charges could be filed. Television images showed black smoke billowing out of the Kiss nightclub as shirtless young men who had attended a university party joined firefighters using axes and sledgehammers to pound at windows and hot-pink exterior walls to free those trapped inside. Bodies of the dead and injured were strewn in the street and panicked screams filled

‘No budget, no pay’ advances WASHINGTON (AP) — In an earlier era, a move like the one engineered by House GOP leaders to pass a “no budget, no pay” measure probably would have been stopped in its tracks. But with Congress’ approval ratings in the gutter, House lawmakers pushed aside questions about fairness and constitutionality and tacked the idea on to an unpopular, must-pass measure to increase the government’s borrowing cap. The measure temporarily would withhold pay from any member of the House or Senate whose chamber doesn’t pass a budget this year. The Senate is expected to approve it in the coming week, but only after leaders make clear they think “no budget, no pay” is rife with flaws and is not going to be repeated. The proposal is before the Senate because the House breezed past objections that the idea is unconstitutional because it could “vary” the pay of lawmakers in violation of the 27th Amendment to the

Constitution. The House ignored concerns that the measure is unfair to members who are in the minority and are powerless to determine whether a budget passes or not. Nearly unmentioned was the prospect that withholding lawmakers’ pay favors wealthy members over those of more modest means and could, in theory, attract more affluent candidates better able to withstand having some of their $174,000 salary withheld. “The last thing we want to do is to say to people running for Congress, ‘If you’re not a millionaire, don’t run because there’s no guarantee you’ll be paid,’” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. For these reasons and more, the idea went nowhere in the last congressional session. But it was embraced about a week ago by House GOP leaders such as Speaker John Boehner of Ohio as they struggled to avoid a potential market-crippling default on

New health care markets on the way WASHINGTON (AP) — Buying your own health insurance will never be the same. This fall, new insurance markets called exchanges will open in each state, marking the long-awaited and much-debated debut of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The goal is quality coverage for millions of uninsured people in the United States. What the reality will look like is anybody’s guess — from bureaucracy, confusion and indifference to seamless service and satisfied customers. Exchanges will offer individuals and their families a choice of private health plans resembling what workers at major companies already get. The government will help many middle-class households pay their premiums, while low-income people will be referred to safety-net programs they might qualify for. Most people will go online to pick a plan when open enrollment starts Oct. 1. Counselors will be available at call centers and in local communities, too. Some areas will get a storefront operation or kiosks at the mall. Translation to Spanish and other languages spoken by immigrants will be provided. When you pick a plan, you’ll no longer have to worry about getting turned down or charged more because of a medical problem. If you’re a woman, you can’t be charged a higher premium because of gender. Middle-aged people and those nearing retirement will get a price break: They can’t be charged more than three times what younger customers pay, compared with six times or seven times today. If all this sounds too good to be true, remember that nothing in life is free and change isn’t easy. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, when coverage takes effect in the exchanges, virtually everyone in the country will be required by law to have health insurance or face fines. The mandate is meant to get everybody paying into the insurance pool. Obama’s law is called the Affordable Care Act, but some people in the new markets might experience sticker shock over their premiums. Smokers will face a financial penalty. Younger, well-to-do people who haven’t seen the need for health insurance may not be eligible for income-based assistance with their premiums.

government obligations. The proposal is a slap at the Democratic-controlled Senate, which hasn’t passed a budget since 2009. Republicans advanced the measure as a one-year experiment rather than a permanent law. The logic behind “no budget, no pay” goes like this: Passing a budget is the core responsibility of Congress, so why should lawmakers get paid if they don’t do their main job? “The hardworking people that I represent wouldn’t be paid if they didn’t show up and they didn’t do their job,” said Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick, R-Pa. “And this place should operate no differently.” For Republicans, much of the appeal of the measure was that it was a rare opportunity to cram something down the Senate’s throat. Two years of polarizing battles over issues big and small have left little good will between the GOP-run House and the Democratic-controlled Senate.

State of emergency declared CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s president declared a state of emergency and curfew in three Suez Canal provinces hit hardest by a weekend wave of unrest that left more than 50 dead, using tactics of the ousted regime to get a grip on discontent over his Islamist policies and the slow pace of change. Angry and almost screaming, Mohammed Morsi vowed in a televised address on Sunday night that he would not hesitate to take even more action to stem the latest eruption of violence across much of the country. But at the same time, he sought to reassure Egyp-

tians that his latest moves would not plunge the country back into authoritarianism. “There is no going back on freedom, democracy and the supremacy of the law,” he said. The worst violence this weekend was in the Mediterranean coastal city of Port Said, where seven people were killed on Sunday, pushing the toll for two days of clashes to at least 44. The unrest was sparked on Saturday by a court conviction and death sentence for 21 defendants involved in a mass soccer riot in the city’s main stadium on Feb. 1, 2012 that left 74 dead.

Holocaust items put on display JERUSALEM (AP) — When Stella Knobel’s family fled World War II Poland in 1939, the only thing the 7year-old girl could take with her was her teddy bear. For the next six years, the stuffed animal never left her side as the family wandered through the Soviet Union, to Iran and finally the Holy Land. “He was like family. He was all I had. He knew all my secrets,” the 80-year-old said with a smile. “I saved him all these years. But I worried what would happen to him when I died.” So when she heard about a project launched by Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust memorial and museum, to collect artifacts from

aging survivors, she reluctantly handed over her beloved bear Misiu, Polish for “teddy bear,” so the memories of the era could be preserved. “We’ve been through a lot together, so it was hard to let him go,” said Knobel, who was widowed 12 years ago and has no children. “But here he has found a haven.” On Sunday, Knobel’s tattered teddy bear was on display at Yad Vashem, one of more than 71,000 items collected nationwide over the past two years. With a missing eye, his stuffing bursting out and a red ribbon around his neck, Misiu was seated behind a glass window as part of the memorial’s “Gathering the Fragments” exhibit.

If they are marble, granite or a specialty type, you should contact the manufacturer for its recommendation. Do not use nail-polish re-

mover on these surfaces. If you have laminate countertops, here is a hint to try: Place a hot, wet cloth (like a washcloth) on the glue spots. Leave the cloth on a spot until it cools, then replace it with another hot, wet cloth. Repeat this process until the glue has softened and you can peel it off. If this method doesn’t work, they do make special products for instant-glue removal. Just be careful when using, as they can dull the finish. Test an out-of-theway spot before using. — Heloise

Which is true? —Nameless, Springfield, Mass. NAMELESS: Beans are a type of legume and edible seed. According to the Mayo Clinic Health Letter, beans are high in protein and a good source of folate, potassium, iron, phosphorus and magnesium. The nutritional makeup of beans may help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Beans are famous for their high fiber content; a diet high in fiber promotes digestive health and can help reduce the risk of heart disease. Do yourself a favor and try a few. Beans are not fattening if you don’t add butter or sugar to this wonderful vegetable.

‘Big Game’ calorie costs in exercise NEW YORK, N.Y. — The “Big Game” has become much more than a football game: It’s the second biggest day for food consumption in the United States after Thanksgiving. So, to choose the most splurgeworthy foods, here are the exercise equivalents for some of your favorite football snacks from Charles Platkin, PhD, MPH, public health advocate, editor of and distinguished lecturer at the City University of New York School of Public Health at Hunter College. The idea is to use exercise equivalents to provide a reference for calories. • Handful of pita chips, each with artichoke dip = Running 141 football fields. Each chip is 13 calories, plus just 1 tablespoon, probably just about a chips worth, of dip is 80 calories. Diet Pro: Make your own 100 percent wholewheat pita chips, and use salsa instead of the artichoke dip. There are many different kinds of salsa. They’re good, and they’re only 15 calories per tablespoon. • Four Dominos stuffed cheesy bacon and jalapeno breadsticks = 193 touchdown dances in the end zone. While the stuffed cheese bread is probably very tasty, with all that fat it’s also a calorie killer at 160 calories per piece, or 640 calories for four. Diet Pro: You can toast 100 percent wholewheat pita bread with butter spray and Parmesan cheese. • Two slices of Dominos bacon cheeseburger feast hand-tossed speciality pizza (16 inches) = 209 minutes performing in a

marching band. Pizza AND a cheeseburger what will they think of next? Each slice is 490 calories, but it is hand tossed. Diet Pro: Try thincrust pizza, and if you really want to be super healthy, how about getting pizza without the cheese just add your own Parmesan. • Half of a White Castle Crave case with cheese = Face painting 111 wild fans. These are sliders with cheese. Each slider is 170 calories. That’s 2,550 calories for 15, but they’re not very large, and there are 30 in a case. Diet Pro: How about having just one or two? Make your own burgers white meat turkey burgers if you really want to be super healthy, or at the very least very lean ground meat. • Three Sierra Nevada Bigfoot beers = 211 minutes of coaching football. There are some highcalorie beers out there, and this is one of the highest. Diet Pro: Unless you love Sierra Nevada and realize the calories, your best bet is a regular beer or, even better, one of those micro-light beers. The best would be Beck’s Premier Light at only 64 calories per 12ounce bottle or MGD Light, also 64 calories. Michelob Ultra and Natural Light have 95, or you can go very low with Budweiser Select for 55. Sample a few light beers before the game to see which ones you prefer. • One sloppy Joe = 59 minutes of climbing the stadium stairs. This is a Tex-Mex creation that includes fatty ground beef, sugar, ketchup and even flour. Sloppy Joes have more than 500 calories with

the bun (about 150 calories). Diet Pro: Use lean ground beef and try a low-calorie sauce (without sugar). It will still taste great. Also, add veggies (onions, peppers, broccoli all chopped up) to the meat to lower overall calories and increase health benefits. • Six traditional hand-spun Buffalo Wild Wings dipped in ranch dressing = Doing “the wave” 6,480 times. Stand up, wave your hand and be counted 6,480 times. Six wings from Buffalo Wild Wings have 990 calories. Then add about two servings of ranch dressing at 170 calories each for a total of 340 calories. That’s 1,330 calories if you have only a small dip of dressing per wing. Diet Pro: You can certainly make your own chicken wings. Go skinless and bake instead of deep frying them. • Two handfuls of Cheetos jumbo puffs = 30 minutes of playing professional football. The only problem is that, according to The Wall Street Journal, there are only about 11 minutes of actual ball playing in a football game. That means you need to play almost three games of professional football to burn off two handfuls of Cheetos. Keep in mind, that’s 320 calories for about 2 ounces yes, only 2 ounces. Diet Pro: How about making your own popcorn? Sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese and spray it with butter spray. • One handful of trail mix = 49 touchdown dances in the end zone. Keep in mind, nuts and chocolate have about 160 calories per ounce, which is not bad if

Varicose Veins More Than Just A Cosmetic Issue Pain Heaviness/Tiredness Burning/Tingling Swelling/Throbbing Tender Veins

you don’t take five handfuls before you’ve even noticed. Diet Pro: Try having only nuts. Nuts are healthy, but they’re very high in calories, so don’t keep a huge bowl in front of you. And try to eat them one at a time meaning don’t shove an entire handful into your mouth all at once. • Bubba Gump jambalaya = 375 minutes of preparing, cooking, serving and cleaning up after the Super Bowl party. That’s more than six hours of cooking, preparing and cleaning. Yes, Bubba Gump is a chain, and the jambalaya has 1,100 calories. Jambalaya is typically made with chicken, shrimp and andouille sausage sauté with peppers, onions, rice and spicy sauce. Diet Pro: Make a healthy jambalaya with boneless chicken breast and brown rice. Thats the way to go. • Outback baby back ribs, full order = 123 minutes of team practice and conditioning. Ribs are fatty, and the sauce is sugary. For the record, Outback Baby Back ribs are 1,156 calories. Diet Pro: Try making them yourself, and trim all visible fat before and after cooking. Also, instead of coating your ribs with an excessive amount of sauce beforehand, partially cook them loaded with seasonings, brush them lightly with the sauce, and then finish cooking. • Four baconwrapped smokies = 156 minutes being the team mascot. Little sausages wrapped in bacon popping just four of those in your mouth will cost you 156 minutes of jumping around and acting a bit foolish (the good news is you’ll be wearing

Aging America:

Elder abuse, use of shelters rising BY DAN SEWELL The Associated Press MASON (AP) — She raises her hands to her snow-white hair in a gesture of frustrated bewilderment, then slowly lowers them to cover eyes filling with tears. The woman, in her 70s, is trying to explain how she wound up in a shelter that could well be where she spends the rest of her life. While the woman was living with a close family member, officials at the Shalom Center say, her was being money drained away by people overcharging for her grocery shopping, while her body and spirit were sapped by physical neglect and emotional torment. She says she was usually ordered to “go to bed,” where she lay in a dark room, upset, unable to sleep. “She just yelled at me all the time. Screamed at me, cussed me out,” the woman says of a family member. “I don’t know what happened. She just got tired of me, I guess.” The Shalom Center offers shelter, along with medical, psychological and legal help, to elderly abuse victims in this northern Cincinnati suburb. It is among a handful in the country that provide sanctuary from such treatment, a problem experts say is grow-

ing along with the age of the nation’s population. The number of Americans 65 and over is projected to nearly double by 2030 because of the 74 million baby boomers born in 1946-64, and the number of people 85 and over is increasing at an even faster rate. The number of seniors being abused, exploited or neglected every year is often estimated at about 2 million, judging by available statistics and surveys, but experts say the number could be much higher. Some research indicates that 1 in 10 seniors have suffered some form of abuse at least once. “That’s a big number,” said Sharon MerrimanNai, project director of the Clearinghouse on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly, based at the University of Delaware. “It’s a huge issue, and it’s just going to get bigger.” Recognition of and mechanisms for dealing with elder abuse are many years behind strides that have been made in child abuse awareness and protection, experts say. Getting comprehensive numbers of the abused is complicated, experts say, because the vast majority of cases go unreported out of embarrassment, fear of being cut off from family — most abuse is at the

hands of relatives — or confusion about what has happened. Abuse sometimes comes to light only by chance. County-level adult protective services caseworkers can get anonymous tips. In one recent Ohio case, a hair stylist noticed her elderly client was wincing in pain and got her to acknowledge she had been hit in the ribs by a relative. Another Shalom Center patient was referred by sheriff’s detectives who said his son beat him. “Are these older people going to be allowed to live their lives the way they deserve to?” said Carol Silver Elliott, CEO of the Cedar Village retirement community, of which the Shalom Center is a part. “We really are not addressing it as a society the way we should.” The Obama administration has said it has increased its focus on protecting American seniors by establishing a national resource center and a consumer protection office, among other steps. But needs are growing at a time when government spending on social services is being cut on many levels or not keeping up with demand. In Ohio, slowly recovering from the recession, have been budgets

slashed in such areas as staffs that investigate elderly abuse cases. Staff at the Job and Family Services agency in Hamilton County in Cincinnati is about half the size it was in 2009, spokesman Brian Gregg said. Even as national statistics indicate elder abuse is increasing, the number of elder abuse cases the agency can probe is lower, down from 574 cases in 2009 to 477 last year, he said. There are no longer enough adult protective services investigators to routinely check on older adults unless there is a specific report of abuse or neglect. “We do the best we can down here,” Gregg said, noting that the agency has a hotline to take anonymous reports and that it is seeing more financial scams targeting elderly people. The price for not getting ahead of the problem and preventing abuse of people who would otherwise be healthy and financially stable will be high, warned Joy Solomon, a former Manhattan assistant prosecutor who helped pioneer elder abuse shelters with the Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention, which opened in 2005 at the Hebrew Home community in New York City.

“My argument always is, if all you do is come in when the crisis has occurred, it is much more costly than preventative care,” said Solomon, director of the shelter, which takes in about 15 people a year. “We’re going to have to pay for it anyway.” She and others in the field say the first steps are to raise public awareness and train police, lawyers, criminal justice officials and others to recognize and respond to signs of abuse. often Prosecutors have been reluctant to purse elder abuse cases, which can be complex because of medical and financial complications, the witness’ ability to testify or reluctance to testify against relatives, according to research for the National Institute of Justice. In suburban Los Angeles, Orange County started an Elder Abuse Forensic Center nearly 10 years ago; it helps police, geriatrics specialists, lawyers and social services workers coordinate efforts to identify, investigate and prosecute abuse cases. New York City started its Elder Abuse Center to 2009 to bring a multiorganization approach to the problem, saying nearly 100,000 older people are abused in their homes in the city

alone. While he was Ohio’s attorney general, Richard Cordray, now director of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, initiated in 2009 the state Elder Abuse Commission, something current Attorney General Mike DeWine has continued. The commission has focused on training and education and hopes to launch a public awareness campaign this year, said Ursel McElroy, the longtime adult protection services investigator who leads it. The commission also has been pushing for legislation to improve legal protection and abuse expand prevention, training, and improve statistical data. In New York, part of the Weinberg Center’s mission is to help other communities replicate it. It has assisted shelter startups in upstate New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Minnesota along with the Shalom Center in Ohio. The center marked its anniversary in January. While more than 40 people have been referred to the nonprofit, faithbased center, only three have gone through with admittance, signs of the reluctance of people who fear losing family relationships — even if they are bad — or the feeling of being at home.

Female inmate overcrowding problem for jails and fourth-degree felons to be incarcerated in county jails. Robert Cornwell, executive director of the Buckeye State Sheriffs’ Association, said the change was seen as a way to save the state money and reduce its prison population. It gave judges more flexibility to put nonviolent felons in local control settings such as halfway houses or communitybased correction facilities, he said. “But that can put a burden on local jails,” Cornwell said. “Many of the jails that were constructed in the last 20 years didn’t envision this increase in the female inmate population.” He said another factor contributing to overcrowding is that

more women are being arrested on drug-related charges considered nonviolent offenses. “They stay at the local jail when they are arrested, and if they are put on a local control program and violate that, they go back to jail,” he said. “It can be like a revolving door.” In the regional jail in Nelsonville, 185 of the 226 inmate beds are designated for its member counties. Those include the counties of Athens, Hocking, Morgan, Perry and Vinton. The remaining beds are used for overflow. There were only about 200 inmates at the regional jail as of Jan. 23, but all of the beds for women were filled.


ATHENS (AP) — The warden of a regional jail in southeast Ohio says overcrowding of female inmates is becoming an increasing problem there and at other county and regional jails around the state. There are 32 beds available for women at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville and — often — they are all occupied, warden Jeremy Tolson told The Athens Messenger. Tolson said the overcrowding is “kind of a new trend,” occurring statewide. Various factors have contributed to the overcrowding, including a state legislative change in 2011, according to some jail officials. That change enabled fifth-

AKRON (AP) — Court statistics show the number of bankruptcy filings in Ohio last year fell to the lowest total since 2006. Experts point to several reasons for the drop, including mortgage lenders holding off foreclosure proceedings and people having so much financial trouble that they have no assets left to protect, The Akron Beacon Journal reported. But experts also see student loan debt driving more people into bankruptcy courts. University of Dayton professor Jeffrey Morris, a member of the National Bankruptcy Conference, said increased awareness of rough economic conditions also may make people more cautious financially. The roughly 50,600 personal and business bankruptcies in 2012 mark a drop of 14 percent from 2011, when there were more than 58,800, according to data from Ohio’s two U.S. Bankruptcy Court districts. It’s the lowest total since 2006, when about 36,000 were reported. The Columbus region had the most, with more than 11,000 bankruptcies. In northeast Ohio, the three-county Akron area had a bit more than 4,100, and the eight-county Canton region had about 3,500, the newspaper said. The data doesn’t differentiate between personal and business filings, but increased difficulty in getting financing for new businesses also could contribute to fewer bankruptcies. “If you can’t open a new business, you can’t get into financial trouble,” said Marc Gertz, a lawyer in Akron who has administered thousands of bankruptcy cases.

From them, I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and the spirit of never giving up, all of which have helped me succeed in my career as an officer in the US Army. Sidney City Schools are big enough, with enough diversity, to expose students to the variety of people, cultures, and opinions it takes to understand and succeed in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society, yet small enough to maintain a sense of family, community, and cohesion. I credit my ability to thrive among different cultures during my time in the Army to my experiences with a diverse student body within Sidney City Schools.â&#x20AC;?

Wildermuth is a Major in the US Army, specializing in telecommunications.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, January 28, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This can be a productive day at work, especially if you’re introducing improvements and clearing away loose ends regarding financial matters. Stay focused. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Discussions about the care and education of children will go well today. This is also a good day to make arrangements for sharing costs of vacations or social events. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t hesitate to act on plans to make repairs or improvements to where you live. Whatever you do will have a longlasting benefit in the future. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a great day for any kind of mental work, because your powers of concentration are excellent. You have the patience for painstaking detail. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Business and commerce are favored today. You want to solidify your finances, if possible. If shopping, you will buy practical, long-lasting items. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) It’s easy to become obsessed today. You can’t get something out of your mind. Fortunately, your approach will be practical when it comes to making improvements. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is an excellent day for research. You have the tenacity and focus to go after what you seek. You’re like a dog with a bone. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) All group discussions will be intense. You don’t intend to back down, even if someone (probably a female) raises some opposition to you. Be careful that you don’t increase this opposition by insisting on getting your own way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) People will notice that you are passionate about everything today. You might have ideas about building something or searching for answers to improve an existing structure. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a good day to make travel plans or future plans related to higher education, publishing and the media. You’re very excited about an idea, but you’re approaching it calmly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Although you feel intensely about things today, you still will be fair and logical when discussing inheritances or shared property. (Just don’t let your feelings get the better of you.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a good day to sit down with others (especially a partner) and discuss long-range future plans. Travel, higher education or ways to get the cooperation of others could be on the agenda. YOU BORN TODAY You are reasonable and fun-loving. People like you and trust you. Personally, you will defend your beliefs and take the high road because you are an idealist. You’re tolerant of many points of view, but you enjoy being provocative. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new.

Occator to record and detect sionally, this leads to a WPW syndrome? — T.Y. big problem, because the ANSWER: The electrical impulse can

travel back up the normal path and down the fast path again, over and over, causing an extremely rapid heart rate. WPW usually is found on a routine EKG. There are cases where it can’t be seen, in which case a stress test is often diagnostic. But there are more causes for fast heartbeats. Your cardiologist has done both the echo and the stress test. If you keep having symptoms, you could wear a device that records your heartbeats continuously for 24-48 hours, called a Holter monitor, or an event monitor for even longer times. Speak to your cardiologist if you keep having symptoms. WPW can be treated

with medication, but it now is more frequently being treated with radiocatheter ablation, where the extra pathway is destroyed with radio waves. Not everyone with WPW needs treatment.

her father. It can still be done, but it will take work on your part. Emma’s behavior may be the result of how you have treated her, and if YOU can change, so may she. I’ll share with you a letter I printed several years ago from another mother who shared your problem: “DEAR ABBY: The best advice I ever received for coping with my contrary daughter was from a neighbor who had a surly girl of her own. She made a conscientious effort to be more demonstrative to her daughter, hug her more and hold on a little tighter to show her how valued she was. ”I tried it with my daughter, going out of my way several times a day to express my love for her. It was awkward at first, but I persevered. I committed myself to loving that

unlovable being, and slowly but surely it paid off. At first, she would lean away, but eventually she would ask me to hold on ‘just one more minute.’ “My daughter is 24 now and on her own. Her life isn’t what I would have hoped for or expected, but that’s OK. I’m her touchstone for love and acceptance. I can’t imagine my life without her. — ANOTHER MOM IN CALIFORNIA” Emma may be a difficult child, but she’s not stupid. She sees the difference between how you react to her halfsister and the way you treat her. A first step for you would be to apologize to her, put your arms around her and tell her that from now on you will try to do better as a mother. Emma didn’t ask to be born, and you owe her that.

Jan. 28, 1913 A rear-end collision on the Big Four railroad near the Murphy pike bridge east of the Miami river between 1 and 2 o’clock this morning, resulted in a caboose and several box cars being badly damaged by fire. The fire department was called to the scene, but being outside of the range of a line of hose no water was thrown. A west-bound freight had stopped to put water in the engine. A second freight, approaching from the east, was unable to stop in time and struck the rear of the first train. Fortunately the two brakemen in the caboose were able to leap to safety. ——— An elaborate dinner and dance was enjoyed at Sexauer’s hall last evening by a number of young people of this city.

75 years Jan. 28, 1938 Rev. R.W. Turner, of Port Jefferson, today formally announced that he would be a candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress in the Fourth Congressional District. In making the announcement he pledged his support to the Townsend Old Age Pension program and also the National Union for Social Justice program. Rev. Turner was the nominee for the Republican party for Congress in this district at the last congressional election, when Frank L. Kloeb, now United States Federal Judge at Toledo, was re-elected. Stockholders of the New Knoxville Telephone Co. named the following directors at their annual meeting: N.P. Katterheinrich, F.A. Grewe, A.H. Steinecker, B.E.

50 years Jan. 28, 1963 A bachelor of science degree has been received from Ohio State University by Larry C. Kleinhans, vocational agriculture instructor at Fairlawn High School.

Kleinhans, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Kleinhans, R.R. 1 Oak Harbor, Oh., Majored in agriculture education with minor subjects in biological science and animal science at O.S.U. Kleinhans began his duties at Fairlawn last fall. ——— Twenty-six-year-old Robert L. Brautigam, who lives with his family on Deam Road in Green township, is Shelby County’s Outstanding Young Farmer of 1962. Announcement of his selection in the annual contest sponsored by the Sidney Jaycees was made at a dinner of that group Monday night in the Compromise Grange Hall, Hardin. Brautigam was presented a plaque and entered in the state contest by the Jaycees. If he should win there, he would go on to the final national competition. In accepting the Young Farmer plaque from the Jaycees Brautigam said first that he wanted to thank his father for “going along with him” in his ambition to be a successful farmer. He and his father have a partnership interest in the 501 acre farm the winner operates. It is a combination grain and dairy farm. ——— WAPAKONETA – Fair board members announced this week that the Lennon Sisters of the Lawrence Welk TV show are booked for Sunday, August 4, second night of the county fair. Directors of the fair believe that the demand for tickets will be great enough to set up an advance ticket sales schedule.

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.

Tigers get big win at Bremen Jets also win on the road over Miami East NEW BREMEN — The Jackson Center Tigers overcame all kinds of adversity to post a big road win Saturday night, beating the New Bremen Cardinals 43-35 in nonleague boys basketball action Saturday at Bremen. The Tigers, now 14-2, are back in action Tuesday at home against Marion Local before hosting the Anna Rockets in County play Friday. Jackson had two players, Gavin Wildermuth and Eric Ryder, both foul out, and leading scorer Alex Meyer was held to just two field goals the entire game. But Wildermuth did plenty of damage before he departed, scoring 10 points in the first half to lead the Tigers to a 23-14 lead at the break. New Bremen made several runs in the second half, but the Tigers never let the Cardinals get closer than three points. “It was a very good win,” said Jackson coach Scott Elchert. “It was a war, and I mean that in a good way. Every possession was a battle and it was one of those games where every possession was big.” The Tigers were solid defensively all night, and Elchert pointed to Levi Winner as being a key on that end of the floor. “Levi was kind of the unsung hero,” he said. “He played (Bremen’s) Carson Manger real tough in the second half after we had to do some switching because of foul trouble.” Wildermuth finished with 12 points to lead the Tigers and Meyer added 11, hitting some big free throws down the stretch. Manger had 10 for the now 13-3 Cardinals, who were held to 25 points below their scoring average for the season. Bremen returns to action Friday at league-leading St. Henry.

Caudill leads Jets over Vikings CASSTOWN — Fairlawn has been struggling of late, but got just the medicine it needed, an excellent road performance in beating the Miami East Vikings 56-51 Saturday night. The Jets are Caudill now 11-6 overall and play at Russia Friday night in County play. Miami East is now 10-5. “This was a good win and hopefully it will get us back on track,” said head Fairlawn coach Justin Tidwell. The key to the game was likely the unselfish play of senior Trey Everett and the longrange shooting of Brad Caudill. The Vikings came out in a 3-2 zone that troubled the Jets for a while, until Tidwell put Everett in the middle. When he got the ball, the Vikings were all over him, but he was able to dish out to the open man. The biggest beneficiary was Caudill, who made the Vikings pay dearly, and tied a

The Jets returned home with a 56-51 victory over the Vikings. school record, by hitting seven three-pointers. He finished with a game-high 23 points, and also had five rebounds. “Miami East collapsed on Trey when he got the ball in the middle and he did a good job of kicking it out,” said Tidwell. “And Brad had a big night shooting the ball.” Everett scored only two points, well below his average, but still finished just shy of a double-double. He had 10 assists and pulled down nine rebounds. Anthony Gillem added 14 points for the Jets. The loss was the first ever by a Miami East high scool team in its two-year-old gymnasium. The volleyball, girls basketball and boys basketball teams were all undefeated in the new gym until Saturday night.

Yellow Jackets lose at St. Marys ST. MARYS — Sidney’s Yellow Jackets fell behind from the start and couldn’t recover in dropping a 64-44 verdict on the road to St. Marys Saturday in non-league boys basketball action. The Yellow Jackets drop to 2-15 with the setback and will return to action Tuesday night at home against Wapakoneta. St. Marys is now 5-10. “We weren’t shooting well,” said Sidney coach Greg Snyder. “We were fighting to stay close, but James Daniel and Tyree Manley were both in foul trouble.” Snyder said a key point in the game came late in the first half. The score was tight, but the Roughriders were able to go on an 8-0 run to open up a 32-21 bulge at the intermission. “We made some mistakes and they took advantage,” said Snyder. “And they hit a three at the buzzer to put us in a tough position going in at the half. In the second half, we did some good things and got

some stops but foul trouble hurt us again. We weren’t able to make enough shots and we missed some free throws.” Jalen Herd was the only Jacket to manage double figures, finishing with 10. “Jalen came off the bench and gave us a nice spark,” Snyder said of Herd. “He was aggressive and made some nice plays at both ends of the floor.” Sidney (44) Stewart 1-0-2; Heath 2-1-5; Daniel 4-1-9; Manley 2-1-5; Herd 3-4-10; Barnes 1-0-2; Echols 3-1-7; McNeal 12-4.

(From page 15) The Cavaliers, 8-7 after back-to-back Saturday night wins, dropped in 26 of 32 free throw attempts, 81 percent, to pull out the victory. “It was a good win for us,” said Lehman head coach Isaiah Williams. “We played well defensively, did a good job on Phlipot. And we hit our free throws.” Lehman hit 18-for-21 from the line in the final period alone. Connor Richard led the way for the Cavaliers with 20 points, 11 of those at the line in 13 attempts. Jackson Frantz and Michael Jacob both had nine points, Frantz hitting 7-for-8 from the line and Jacob 5-for-7.

Lehman has its work cut out Tuesday night at home, taking on Versailles in a makeup game. Houston is off until Saturday when Troy Christian comes to the Wildcat gym, a night after they host Lehman.

Minster wins in double OT MINSTER — Minster let a 12-point halftime lead evaporate and was forced into overtime, then needed a 25-foot threepointer from Adam Niemeyer to force a second overtime, before the Wildcats were able to pull away for a 73-67 thriller in non-league boys basketball action against visiting Wapakoneta Saturday night. The win puts the Wildcats at 10-5 on the season heading into a challenging weekend, with games against Fort Recovery Friday and Jackson Center Saturday, both in the friendy confines. “We’re up 12 at the half but Wapak is a pretty good team and I knew they weren’t going away,” said Minster coach Mike Lee. “(Jake) Buzzard really went off on us in the third quarter. He had 14 of his points in that quarter. We really dodged some bullets. We weren’t rebounding and we were turning the ball over but we still had a shot at the end.” Wapak hit its first three shots in the first overtime to put Minster behind the 8-ball, but the Wildcats were bailed out when Niemeyer’s long three-pointer found its mark to knot the

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The fog listed Sunday and revealed a familiar sight: Tiger Woods in command at Torrey Pines. Despite finishing with a bogey on the easiest hole of the back nine, Woods began to pull away from the field with a 3-under 69 in the third round to build a fourshot lead in the Farmers Insurance Open. Woods has only lost twice on the PGA Tour in 40 previous times that he has held the outright lead through 54 holes. Because fog wiped out all of Saturday, players were going as long as daylight allowed before returning Monday to complete the tournament. Woods, who was at 14-under 202, was likely to get in about six holes before darkness, and he didn’t bother switching to a red shirt for the start of the final round. Brad Fritsch, a PGA Tour rookie from Canada, had a 70 and was at 206. Erik Compton finished birdie-eagle for a 71 and was alone in third, five shots behind. Asked about trying to chase Woods, Compton started laughing. “I’m trying to chase myself,” he said. Woods has won seven times at Torrey Pines as a pro, including a U.S. Open, and another win Monday would give him the most wins on any course. The tournament staff followed the final group along the back nine, ready to change the hole locations to get ready for the final round. Players had about 30 minutes to get something to eat and hit a few balls before going right back out. Woods had superb control of his tee shots and was rarely out of position on a day that began under a light drizzle and soon gave way to patchy clouds and clear views of the Pacific surf below the bluffs. Starting with a twoshot lead, he stretched that quickly with a tapin birdie on the second hole and a beautiful tee shot to a left pin on the downhill par 3 to about 4 feet. The South Course played even longer with the soft conditions, and only seven players broke 70. Aaron Baddeley had the lowest score of the round with a 68.

Foul trouble hurts Anna in 66-56 loss to Madison MIDDLETOWN — Even with leading scorer Natalie Billing seeing limited time on the floor because of foul trouble, the Anna Lady Rockets still put themselves in position to win a big road game Saturday against perennial power Middletown Madison. But Madison came up with a couple of big backto-back three-pointers to swing the momentum, then hit free throws down the stretch to defeat the Lady Rockets in a non-league girls basketball game Saturday in Middletown, 66-56. The loss leaves Anna at 14-4 on the year heading into another big challenge Thursday at Tipp City. Billing, Anna’s top scorer and rebounder, picked up three fouls in the first quarter and went to the bench for the remainder of the half. She re-entered the game in the third quarter but picked up her fourth, dispatching her to the bench again. “She got her second foul in the first quarter and I took a chance,” said head coach Jack Billing. “Madison is so big that we needed her in there. But it didn’t work out.” When the game ended, Natalie had played only nine minutes or so. But even with that, Anna took now 16-2 Madison to the limit, and Jack Billing pointed to a key series early in the final period. With 5:40 remaining in the game, Anna had a threepoint lead and possession of the ball. “We missed a layup and they hit two threepointers in a row,” the coach said. “So instead of us going up by five, we were down three, and that really changed the momentum. We had to start fouling and they hit their free throws. “Madison played well and hit some big shots when they had to,” he added. “We’re just not getting any breaks.” Anna has toughened up its schedule substantially with games like this. Others this season include Dayton Carroll and Cincinnati Winton Woods, and then there is Tipp City on Thursday. And they all have one thing in common – all have been or wil be on the road. Cayla Bensman and Erica Huber did their best to make up for Billing’s lack of floor time, combining for 41 points. Bensman had 22 and Huber 19. Billing was able to score 11
