BUCKEYE CHUCK looks out during Groundhog Day, Thursday in Marion. Chuck predicts an early spring this year.

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil told people to prepare for six more weeks of winter on Thursday, making him the minority opinion among his groundhog brethren who seem to think that spring is coming early. But with such a mild and relatively snowless winter so far, who can tell the difference? Phil’s “prediction” came as he emerged from his lair to “see” his shadow on Gobbler’s Knob, a tiny hill in the town for which he’s named about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Yet groundhogs in at least five other states — West Virginia’s French Creek Freddie, Georgia’s Gen. Beauregard Lee, Michigan’s Woody the Woodchuck, Ohio’s Buckeye Chuck and New York’s Staten Island Chuck (full name: Charles G. Hogg) — did not see their shadows. Nor did Ontario’s Wiarton Willie or Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam. The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German

PRICES FOR prime farm land have doubled over the past five years in Shelby County, area auctioneers report.

Farmland prices double BY TOM BARNETT tbarnett@sdnccg.com Farmland prices have increased in Shelby County and across the nation in the past five years, fueled by high commodity prices and low interest rates that benefit farmers, local auctioneers say. “Prices for prime farmland have doubled since 2006,” said Justin Vondenhuevel, of Maplewood. “Five years ago, land was selling for an average of $4,500 an acre. It’s now about $9,000 and a Botkins area farm sold at $9,500 an acre recently. “Vondenhuevel Auction Services sold farmland for $8,000 an acre even a year and a half ago,” he recalled. “And rising commodity prices

— wheat, corn and soybeans — have helped farmers buy more land. The land investors have moved away. It used to be farmers didn’t have the cash, but that’s changed. “We’re also seeing less farm ground for sale since cash rent prices have also increased. Tenant rent is now up to $300 an acre and landowners are renting instead of selling acreage. Vondenhuevel also said prices realized for farmland at live auctions are higher than the alternate method of sealed bids that often involve the services of an attorney. “The number the seller gets tends to be to be lower. “Standing toe-to-toe with other bidders somehow seems to influence the bottom line

He also mentioned ground that sold for $8,000 at a recent private sale. “Shelby County land values have increased 60 to 70 percent in the last five years,” Barhorst said.

Suspended Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel confirmed Thursday he is circulating nominating petitions to become an i nd e p e nd e nt candidate for sheriff in the Nov. 6 election. Contacted Thursday by Kimpel the Sidney Daily News, Kimpel offered no comment on his bid to seek reelection. Elected to office as a Republican, Kimpel lost support of Shelby County’s GOP Committee, which recommended his removal from office last year. The deadline to file general election petitions with the Shelby County Board of Elections is March 5 at 4 p.m. Board Director Dawn Billing said sheriff’s petitions require at least 178 valid signatures. Kimpel, 57, a Botkins-area resident, is currently serving a paid suspension from office pending resolution of separate felony charges in both Auglaize and Shelby County Common Pleas courts. Charges against Kimpel include sexual battery of a former deputy and unauthorized use of an Ohio law enforcement computer system.

BULLETIN BOARD

Council OKs summer ball season DEGRAFF — There will be a summer ball season for young people in DeGraff as the result of action at the recent DeGraff Village Council meeting. Lisa Snow of the DeGraff Playground Boosters requested the use of the Village Park and facilities from April 1 through July 31 for the summer ball season. She also asked to use the municipal building to conduct signups and coaches meetings Sunday, 2-4 p.m., for ball signups; Monday, 7-8 p.m., for coaches meeting; Feb. 11, 9 a.m.-noon, for ball signups; and March 21, 78:30 p.m., for coaches meeting. The Parks and Recreation Board reported it is looking into having a key deposit for the Dumpster key and other facility keys because a number of keys had been lost during the past year. Gloria Armstrong of the Cemetery Committee said cemetery officials would like to lower the flag to half-staff for the burial of military veterans. Jennifer Ganson-Bowman of the Joint Sewer Board reported that the group had changed its meeting date to the first Monday of the month. Board members also wanted to know what the anticipated wage and benefits costs would be for the half-time wastewater treatment plant operator, noting that the new employee must hold a Class II waste water certification. The board also learned that the Logan County Commissioners had awarded funds for the ADA ramps at the fourway intersection at Ohio 235 (Miami Street) and Main Street. The village is still responsible for the engineering portion of the project. The next council meeting is Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the municipal building, 107 S. Main St.

Couples find challenges, rewards in ballroom dancing Instructors began 51 years ago BY JENNIFER BUMGARNER jbumgarner@sdnccg.com NEW BREMEN — With combined experience of 102 years in dancing, Terry and Ted Wagner have been twirling through the decades teaching students from all walks of life the joy of dancing. The Wagners teach eightweek beginner’s courses at Wagner Ballroom Dance Studio, 111 Rummel Creek Drive. They started dancing in 1961 and started teaching in 1963. “When we first started we were teaching all largegroup lessons at the American Legion or the VFW,” said Ted. “In the late 1960s someone said we ought to be competing and we had a great time.” The Wagners competed professionally until the late 1970s and continued teaching. Right now the Wagners have about 30 couples in advanced and beginner dance classes. “I put together a spreadsheet in 1998 and we had about 1,200 different students,” said Ted. “We’ve had people come from Dayton, Richmond, Lima and Columbus.” According to Ted, some dance studios can charge up to $165 per hour. At the Wagner Ballroom Dance Studio, an eight-lesson course is $100 per couple. No matter where a person learns to dance, Ted said training is the key to teaching not only the steps but the feeling be-

hind the dances. “The man’s job is to make the lady be at ease and to feel good about what she’s doing. He has to lead,” said Ted. “Good training is essential.” The Wagners see people of all ages and professions come to their studio. Ron and Sharon Rindler, of St. Henry, have been dancing for nine years, and according to Sharon, it all started as a Christmas gift. “The information was in our church bulletin and I gave it to my husband for Christmas,” said Sharon. “It was very challenging, which we enjoyed.” The Rindlers have been taking dance lessons ever

since and even help out with beginner classes. They recently finished learning the tango, which is just one of the many dances the Wagners teach. The Wagners also teach the foxtrot, waltz, Viennese waltz, peabody, quickstep, swing, cha-cha, rhumba, bolero, samba, salsa, mamba, meringue, night club two-step and others. More advanced dancers learn different styles and the beginner classes allow learners to start out with others at their level. “It’s intimidating to get on a dance floor with people who are more experienced than you,” said Ted. “We all started in the same place.”

Many students find that the reward in dancing goes along with the challenge of learning something new. “It’s more challenging than I thought it would be,” said beginner Dwyn Hirt, of Celina. “Our kids and their friends think we’re so cute dancing.” There are places that couples can go to dance after taking classes. There are three dances a month in Osgood and the Troy Rec center also holds dances during the month. There are also dance clubs in the Dayton area. The dance studio can be reached at (419) 629-2227 or online at www.wagnerballroom.com

Heart-disease survivors optimistic BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN pspeelman@sdnccg.com If there’s one thing heart-trouble survivors have in common, it’s optimism. Three Sidney residents looked heart problems in the face — and, with the help of good and other doctors health-care professionals, have faced them down. Now, they all look forward, not back. And they laugh a lot. Their good attitudes are helping their recovery, according to Dr. Harvey Hahn of Sidney Cardiology, Alliance Physicians Inc. He is the physician overseeing care of two of the three. “The better your attitude, the more likely you’re going to do well,� he said. “You get out of it what you put into it. And when you have a good attitude, you’re more engaged in your own care.�

Bill McClain Bill McClain’s first heart attack occurred in 1982 when he was 43. Another one came in 1988 when he was 48. The third came a day after the second. Since then, he has been resuscitated 33 times. A Sidney native, McClain moved to Florida in the mid-1980s for his job as a salesman. He became a patient of Dr. Carl Pepine, a professor of medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville, Fla. Pepine treated McClain for severe coronary arterial disease, anterior and inferior myocardial infarction, ischemia, left ventricular dysfunction, ventricular fibrillation, endocarditis and septicemia. McClain survived 26 cardiac arrests. “I had to go on disability,� he said. “The purpose of being in Florida was the job. I had 25 percent function in my heart.� Since he was no longer working in Florida, he returned to Sidney in 2000. He took medication, Amiodarone, for 17 years and then took the advice of his doctors and had an internal defibrillator implanted in 2005. The surgery was done in Florida. He had been back in Sidney for only two days when the de-

McClain has been resuscitated from heart problems and cardiac arrests 33 times. vice shocked him. He visited Dr. Randall Orem in Sidney, who increased his medication. Orem also changed the battery in the defibrillator in 2009. More recently, McClain has been seeing the doctors at Sidney Cardiology, Alliance Physicians Inc. His heart functions at 10 to 15 percent and it’s enlarged. “So it beats slower and has a tough time pumping enough blood to the lungs,� he said. Therefore, he is on oxygen full time and he does a regular regimen of exercises at Wilson Memorial Hospital: 20 minutes on a stationary bike, 20 minutes on a treadmill, an arm motion workout. Every Thursday, he meets friends for coffee at Tim Horton’s. “You can’t get too excited or you get shocked,� McClain said. “You can sit next to me and wouldn’t know it. But it sounds like a bomb goes off inside of me.� This month, he will celebrate his 72nd birthday. “I never thought I would live this long,� he said, laughing.

Betty Lee Hughes “My hobby is my whole life,� bubbled Betty Lee Hughes. A retired registered nurse, she had no idea when she was working in the cardiology unit at Wilson Memorial Hospital that she would one day be a heart patient herself. Hughes is a breast cancer survivor, having had a mastectomy in 1978. She retired from nursing in 1990.

“I had a beautiful career,� she said. A 1992 MRI showed that she had no disc in her lower back. It was painful to walk, so Hughes began regular use of a wheelchair. She also began to swim. Now 77, she and her husband, Wilbur, are religious about swimming at the YMCA for an hour three days each week. “Over the last 10 or 12 years, I had been getting increasingly short of breath,� Hughes said. “In 2000, I was going in for and tests surgery showed I had a heart murmur.� Those health problems did not slow down. She Hughes helped to found the Senior Center of Sidney and Shelby County, she continues to sit on the board of the Area Agency on Aging. She is active with the Coalition on Aging and AARP and is often on the go with friends. “Back in August, I went to a two-day seminar at Deercreek Lodge for the Area Agency on Aging,� she said. “I pushed my wheelchair with the luggage in it. I got into the lodge and blacked out. I went through the weekend, but I stayed in my wheelchair after that.� Back in Sidney after the seminar, Hughes visited her doctor, Dr. Robert McDevitt, and told him about her blacking out. He recommended an echocardiogram and an ultrasound. “You have very severe stenosis,� the physician told her. “It’s out of your hands. The treatment is

the replacement of the aortic valve. I’d like to do a catheterization right away.� Stenosis is the abnormal narrowing of a blood vessel. Hughes went to Kettering for the surgery. The day after, she blacked out and her heart stopped. Medical personnel connected her to a pacemaker. “That’s very common, especially with women,� Hughes said. She recuperated for two weeks at Dorothy Love Retirement Community and had four weeks of occupational therapy and home health care. That was followed by four weeks of cardiac rehabilitation at Wilson. “Now it’s all over and I feel great,� Hughes enthused. “I don’t even have pain in my back. Apparently, the pain in my back was because my heart wasn’t pumping enough blood there.�

Bob Berger Bob Berger knew he had a heart murmur. So he was well aware that something was wrong. He had been pushing the lawn mower around a small patch of yard and there was “a whole lot of pressure� in his chest. It hurt.

But he and his wife, Vicky, were about to leave for a 40th anniversary trip to the Southwest, so he didn’t do anything about it. “We had bad problems in the airport in Las Vegas on the way home,� he said. “Pressure and shortness of breath.� He made it home and the symptoms came again a few days later, on Dec. 23. “I work nights,� Vicky said. “He didn’t tell me about it until I came home at midnight.� On Christmas Eve, the condition worsened. “There was tightness in my chest, it hurt, shortness of breath, weakness. I felt like at the end of a treadmill session,� Berger said. He took the time to write into a journal the frequency and intensity of the pains and then told Vicky that they should go to the emergency room. Personnel there ran tests and sent him home. On Dec. 26, the pains woke him up. He went back to Wilson where he collapsed during a treadmill test. Medics put him in the intensive-care unit on a nitroglycerin intravenous drip. The next day, he was transported to Kettering where he had three stints inserted in arteries around his heart. “They put me on a ton of pills,� he said. The Vietnam War veteran, who has been dabbling in commodity options for 20 years, is a patient of the doctors at Sidney Cardiology, Alliance Physicians Inc. He is still recuperating and gets strong support from his three children, Chris, Kelly and Kevin, and his seven grandchildren. He exercises on a rowing machine that he has at home. “I’m working slowly up to my stationary bike and my Bowflex,� he

said. “I don’t like taking statins. If I lose 25 pounds, I can take fewer statins.� He has elected to go on a wheat- and sugarfree diet. He has eliminated processed foods, junk food and fried foods. “I have one pop a week,� he said. “And a lot of white meat and just a little red meat, three eggs a week, omega 3 fish oil, berries and almonds. I’ve been on it for two weeks. I’m having wheat withdrawal. I miss my toast in the morning.�

Their advice “Exercise is so important,� Hughes said. “They could only do the surgery on me because I was healthy from swimming.� “Stay away from junk food and fried food,� Berger suggested. “I’m into spices and herbs, like curry and turmeric.� “Turmeric is the spice of life,� Vicky said. “Heart health starts with diet,� said McClain. “Don’t eat butter, don’t eat greasy food — very often. If you have a hamburger and fry it, then run hot water over it before you eat it. It’s just common sense. It’s not debilitating after you make the adjustment.� He also stressed the importance of exercise. “Even if you just walk a couple of miles a day, that increases the blood flow,� McClain said. “And when you get to age 50, develop a relationship with a cardiologist, so if you have a problem, he’ll already know you and know where you are. “And take your meds. If they give you medication, take the damn pills.� All three people are passionate about being alive and living life to the fullest. “Once you’ve had a heart attack, you plan your funeral every day,� McClain said. “And then you get back to living.�

Patients: Don’t ignore trouble signs For Ohio Community Media TROY — When Ray Lepore suffered a heart attack last fall, he asked the same question as many other victims — “Why did this happen to me?” Lepore, in the midst of moving from a home in Troy to a new residence at Wayne Lakes near Greenville, was getting ready for work one morning when it struck. “All of a sudden, it was like a pit bull just grabbed me in the chest,” he recalled. The pain went away briefly, but returned and was unrelenting. A call to Troy paramedics landed him first in the Upper Valley Medical Center Emergency Department, then at Good Hospital, Samaritan where two stents were placed.

‘In good health’ “I was in good health, good shape and recovered pretty quickly,” Lepore said. “The first few weeks afterward were a very scary time. It is still very scary when I let myself think about it. Every sensation now that you have, you are wondering, ‘Is that related to my heart?’” A short time after the attack he was back at UVMC, this time to participate in the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program at the recommendation of his doctor. “I walked in here. Within five minutes I realized this is where I needed to be,” said Lepore, a sales engineer at Dickman Supply in Sidney. “You are here with people who all are in the same boat and all are dedicated to taking care of ourselves. There is a great staff here that helps us every step of the way.” He participates in the program three days a week, with his physical activity monitored by center staff.

She participates in the rehab program and has worked with staff on a weightlifting plan that is appropriate for her, her heart and an irregular heartbeat experienced following her attack. Maniaci McMillan said it is important to remind people not to ignore the warning signs of a possible heart attack and to seek help if they occur. One major sign for men is chest discomfort, which has been described as pain, pressure or fullness in the chest. The feeling could spread to the back or neck, the jaw or the arm or you could have tingling, numbness in your arms, she said.

The program is seeing more people in their 40s and 50s, an increase attributed to lifestyles, Less obvious For women, the signs stress and people not takare less obvious. They could include chronic fatigue, shortness of breath or an overall sense of not feeling well. “Many will say, ‘It will go away. I have the flu or I just overdid it,’” Maniaci McMillan said. “By waiting, more damage to the heart could occur. Once the heart is damaged, it doesn’t grow back or rejuvenate itself.” The problem could be something else, but the person needs to have the concerns checked, she said. “When people have signs or symptoms, they will say, ‘It can’t be me.

‘Every heartbeat’ “They watch my every heartbeat. It is another comforting thing, if anything goes wrong here, they are watching,” he said. “I call this my lifeboat because we all come at it from different perspectives, but you are scared, you feel kind of alone and kind of lost,” Lepore said. “They reach out a hand to us and say, ‘Come on, we know how you feel, what you are going through. Let us give you a hand. We will help right the ship, get you on the right track again.’” The goal of the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program is to make the patient’s heart and lungs stronger and healthier, said Tami Maniaci McMillan, lead nurse for cardiac rehabilitation at UVMC. Those seen in the cardiac portion of the rehab program have had a bypass, heart attack, valve replacement, stents placed or angina.

‘Educate them’ “We try to educate them about heart disease so they don’t have to go through surgery again. We provide psychological support, to help them feel confident again,” Maniaci McMillan said. Patients are supervised by a nurse, are on heart monitors and get frequent blood pressure checks. The rehab program lasts eight to 12 weeks and is followed by follow-up and maintenance programs. The rehab program’s first patient in 1985 still works out at the rehab center. One of its newest participants is Linda Cochran, of Troy, who had a heart attack in

AMERICAN HEART MONTH

Diabetes, heart disease linked BY JENNIFER RUNYON Ohio Community Media editorial@dailycall.com TROY — Two out of three people with diabetes die from heart disease or stroke, also called cardiovascular disease. According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 8.3 percent of the population, have diabetes. How does diabetes cause heart disease? According to Elaine Bohman RN-BC, BSN, CTTS, a nurse in the Cardiopulmonary Rehab Unit at Upper Valley Medical Center, the body must metabolize food, turning most of it into glucose. This glucose circulates through the bloodstream, going to cells to be used. In people who do not have diabetes, the pancreas makes the proper amount of insulin to move the glucose from the bloodstream into the cells. However, in a person with diabetes, the pancreas does not produce insulin or the cells have trouble using the insulin, or both. This leads to an increased amount of glucose in the blood. Over time, high

to help prevent heart disease and take the following steps: 1) Have a healthy weight with a BMI (body mass index) of less than 25 or a waist measurement of less than 40 inches for men and less than 35 inches for women. 2) Exercise 30 to 45 minutes daily. 3) Do not smoke. 4) Control blood sugar. Monitor blood sugars as by your instructed health care provider and have an A1C test twice a year. 5) Be aware of your cholesterol levels. 6) Have your blood pressure checked regularly. 7) Talk with your health care provider to discuss appropriate targets for your numbers and to assist you in developing a plan to get there. 8) Keep a log and take medications as instructed. Bohman estimates that one-quarter to onethird of the patients seen in cardiac rehab at UVMC have diabetes. “Heart disease can be controlled and to an extent reversed when keeping one’s numbers where they are meant to be,” she said.

Heart disease, stroke, blood pressure facts Heart disease, stroke and blood pressure facts according to the Center for Disease Control. • In 2004, heart disease was noted on 68 percent of diabetes-related death certificates among people age 65 or older. • In 2004, stroke was noted on 16 percent of diabetes-related death certificates among people age 65 or older. • Adults with diabetes have heart-disease death rates about two to four times higher than adults without diabetes. • The risk for stroke is two to four times higher among people with diabetes. • In 2005-2008, of adults age 20 or older with self-reported diabetes, 67 percent had blood pressure greater than or equal to 140/90 mmHg or used prescription medications for hypertension.

Health fair planned Feb. 16 TROY — Free health screenings and sharing of health information will be among activities at the Heart Month Health Fair scheduled for Feb. 16 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Activities will be held in the lower-level classrooms at the Upper Valley Medical Center, 3130 N. County Road 25A. Appointments are required this year for those interested in free fingerstick screenings for total cholesterol, HDL good cholesterol and blood sugar and for blood pressure screenings. No fasting is required for the cholesterol screenings. The appointments are required because of high demand for screenings at previous fairs. Appointments for screenings should be made by calling CareFinders at (866) 608-3463. The tests are offered as screenings only and are not intended to take the place of a doctor’s monitoring of your health. UVMC programs and cardiology professionals will offer additional health testing and/or information. The Health Fair is sponsored by UVMC in conjunction with Premier Community Health.

measured by seven key factors. Called “Life’s Simple 7,” these include smoking, body weight, physical activity, healthy diet, blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose. Even simple, small changes to these seven factors can make a big difference in living a better, longer life. The definitions support the American Heart Association's new national goal: by 2020, improve the cardiovascular health of

all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent. To learn more, visit the website at www.heart.org/MyLifeCh eck.

According to the American Heart Association, nearly 40 percent of those responding to a national survey thought they were in ideal heart health, when in reality less than 1 percent of Americans have an ideal profile.

There’s good news for adults who want to improve their heart health. The American Heart Association has created a new online resource, My Life Check, to help people assess their individual level of cardiovascular health, identify risk factors and modify their behavior. Self-assessment is an important tool when it comes to getting an accurate “snapshot” of one’s heart health. That’s because many Americans don’t fully understand cardiovascular their health and the behaviors that can put them at risk. People often think they

The S & H Board of Trustees met recently and heard about a visit at S & H Industries from the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. The board heard that Brad Ridenour, industrial engineer and erconsultant gonomics from the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, visited S & H Industries and looked at the equipment, furniture, lifts, hilo beds and other areas. Ridenour reported that the program was in “good shape” from an ergonomic and safety perspective. Rick Husa, adult services director, reported that since the Christmas shutdown, S & H Industries has had enough work to keep its employees busy and he noted that it has received work from two former customers. S & H Industries’ enrollment is also reportedly increasing. Officials are reviewing the program to see how S & H can continue to grow and have quality services and fiscal boundaries. The S & H employee Christmas luncheon was held Dec. 16 and was reportedly a success. The employees heard music by Luke Fullenkamp, a former S & H staff member. One of the S & H employees provided disc jockley services and plaques were given to the calendar artists. The Spot catered the food. The next board meeting is scheduled for Feb. 17.

FORT LORAMIE — Firefighters from several fire departments, including Fort Loramie, Lockington and Shelby County Fire, were battling a structure fire Thursday night at 5500 Cecil Road. The first calls were received around 9 p.m. No other information was available at press time. See Saturday’s newspaper for more on the fire.

GROUNDHOG Organizers expected 15,000 to 18,000 people to witness the prognostication ceremony that was held just before 7:30 a.m. And the ceremony is largely that: Phil’s prediction is determined ahead of time by the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle, a group who dons top hats and tuxedos and decides in advance what the furry creature will predict. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett was among the spectators this year. Those who couldn’t make it to Gobbler’s Knob could follow the groundhog on Twitter and Facebook, or watch a webcast of the event on his website. “What started as a small gathering in 1887 has now evolved into tens of thousands of visitors from around the nation and even the world coming to Punxsutawney to participate in this time-honored Groundhog Day tradi-

tion,” Corbett said. Phil has now seen his shadow 100 times and hasn’t seen it just 16 times since 1886, according to the Inner Circle. There are no records for the remaining years. The tradition attained a large following with the 1993 Bill Murray comedy “Groundhog Day,” in which a weatherman covering the event must relive the day over and over again. Before the movie came out, Phil was lucky to have an audience of 2,500, said Mike Johnston, vice president of the Inner Circle. And while the group has records of Phil’s predictions dating back to 1886, what it doesn’t have is a tally of whether Phil was right. Johnston said the reason is simple: “He’s never been wrong.” Phil is “incapable of error,” he said, because the groundhog smartly avoids being site-specific in his prognostications.


STATE NEWS

Sidney Daily News, Friday, February 3, 2012

Bill would start schools after Labor Day COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio lawmakers who want public schools to wait until after Labor Day to start classes say the state’s tourism industry loses business when kids go back to school too early. State Rep. Bill Hayes, a co-sponsor of the proposed legislation, says one reason for the bill was to see if having schools open would help tourism, which he says is the state’s third-biggest industry, The Columbus Dispatch reported. By extending the summer vacation season, the tourism and recreation industry can “thrive and generate revenue for the economy that’s suffering so terribly in the state,” according to Hayes. That would also generate state revenue, part of which gets passed down to public schools, he said. Ohio school districts now set their own calendars, with many starting in middle or late August. The same bill also would determine the length of the school year based on the number of hours students are in class, not the number

of days. Under current Ohio law schools must be open 182 days. That number, Hayes said, includes days when classes are not in session, such as teacher conference days. Representatives of the Ohio School Boards Association and the Ohio Association of School Business Officials were among those testifying against the bill Wednesday before the House Education Committee. “If the goal is for our students to be better equipped to compete in a global economy, placing restrictions on when districts can conduct school is not the answer,” said Damon Asbury, director of legislative services for the school boards association. The bill would require secondary-school students to be in class a minimum of 1,001 hours during the school year, with fewer hours for younger students. Marc Schare, a member of the Worthington school board in suburban Columbus, testified that the

Ohio Senate considers limiting smoking in cars

legislation is “essentially allowing us to shave five full weeks off the school year” and could reduce the quality of education. The Worthington board approved a resolution asking the General Assembly and Gov. John Kasich to reject or veto the legislation. The bill would give school districts a way to opt out of the postLabor Day requirement if they hold a public hearing and their school board votes on a new start date, Hayes said. Schools would not be permitted to decrease class hours without school board approval. Hayes, a Licking County Republican, said that he thinks the bill will increase educational time in many districts. Hayes’ legislative aide, Sam Smith, said Thursday that the bill also would give schools more flexibility in scheduling that could result in reduced costs for transportation and other school operations.

Thor Industries says 2Q sales up 13 percent JACKSON CENTER (AP) — Bus and camper vehicle maker Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) said its fiscal secondquarter sales rose 13 percent on higher RV sales. Thor Industries released preliminary sales figures late Thursday for the quarter ended Jan. 31, showing revenue of $596.4 million, compared

with $526.2 million during the same period last year. If the preliminary numbers hold true, they will beat Wall Street expectations. Analysts expect the company to report $551.1 million in revenue when it releases its full earnings report for the quarter, according to FactSet. The company is sched-

S

uled to report its full second-quarter earnings March 5. The company, which makes recreational vehilike tow-along cles campers, said RV sales rose 15 percent from last year, at $500.7 million, compared with $437.1 million the year before. Bus sales climbed 7 percent to $95.7 million. The company said it

had a backlog of orders on Jan. 31 worth $647 million. That’s down from the backlog of $689 million it had last year. RV backlog was $413 million at the end of the quarter, down from $467 million last year. Bus backlog was $234 million, up 5 percent from $222 million last year. Shares fell 2 cents to close at $30.98 Thursday.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s prohibitions on smoking would extend to cars with children younger than 6 on board, under an Ohio Senate bill that backers say would safeguard youngsters from the dangers of secondhand smoke and is similar to bans elsewhere. “An infant or minor who is a passenger in a car is not making the decision to smoke. However, they can potentially suffer significant consequences,” Sen. Charleta Tavares told a Senate committee. The bill sponsored by the Columbus Democrat calls for fines starting at $500 for violators caught lighting up in a vehicle with young children present, The (Youngstown) Vindicator reported. Ohio bans smoking in most indoor public places through a law that was overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2006 and took effect the following year. Smoking in vehicles while children are passengers has been outlawed in Canada and Australia, and in other states including Louisiana, Maine and California. Under California’s ban, the children may be as old as 17. Sen. Tom Patton, the chairman of the Highways and Transportation Committee, signaled support for the concept during Wednesday’s first hearing on Tavares’ bill. But he questioned the 6-year-old cutoff. “The difficulty in being able to determine whether a child is 6 versus 7 or 9,” Patton said, according to WBNS-TV. “And how often do people get pulled over? And would they have to provide birth certificates or proof that a child is over 6?” Another Republican, Sen. Frank LaRose of Fairlawn, warned that critics would be likely to say the proposal infringes on personal liberty. “A car represents freedom, and what I do in my car is my own freedom,” LaRose said. “But I think there’s also a really important point to make in that your freedom to act ends when it impacts another’s health, particularly an innocent young child.” That concern resonates with Christina Greenlee. The smoker and mother of four told the Columbus television station she has already made her car a smoke-free zone. “I choose not to smoke in front of them because of their health,” Greenlee said. “They say second-hand smoke is the worst thing.”

BRIEFLY

No-fly list doubles WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has more than doubled, to about 21,000 names, its secret list of suspected terrorists who are banned from flying to or within the United States, including about 500 Americans, the Associated Press has learned. The government lowered the bar for being added to the list, even as it says it’s closer than ever to defeating al-Qaida. The size of the government’s secret no-fly list has jumped from about 10,000 in the past year, according to government figures provided to the AP. The surge comes as the government says it’s close to defeating al-Qaida, after killing many of its senior members. But senior officials said the threat does not stop there.

Magna Carta to be on display WASHINGTON (AP) — A 715-year old copy of Magna Carta will soon return to public view at the National Archives after a conservation effort removed old patches and repaired weak spots in the English declaration of human rights that inspired the United States’ founding documents. The National Archives unveiled the medieval document Thursday in a specially humidified glass and metal case. It is the only original Magna Carta in the United States and will return to public display Feb. 17. A $13.5 million gift from philanthropist David Rubenstein funded the conservation, the custombuilt case and a new gallery being renovated to host Magna Carta.

EGYPTIAN PROTESTERS stand on a cement block barrier thousands of demonstrators outside the Interior Ministry separating the interior ministry from Tahrir Square, Cairo, protesting the security forces' failure to prevent a soccer riot Egypt Thursday. Egyptian police fired tear gas Thursday at that killed more than 70 people.

Protesters blame police for deaths CAIRO (AP) — Security forces clashed Thursday with stone-throwing protesters enraged by the failure of police to prevent a soccer riot that killed 74 people, as sports violence spiraled into a new political crisis for Egypt. The deaths Wednesday night in a postmatch stadium riot in the Mediterranean city of Port Said fueled anger at Egypt’s ruling military and the already widely distrusted police forces. Many in the public and in the newly elected parliament blamed the leadership for letting it happen — whether from a lack of control or, as some alleged, on purpose. Survivors of the riot described a nightmarish scene in the stadium. Police stood by doing nothing, they said, as fans of the winning home team, Al-Masry, attacked supporters of the top Cairo club, Al-Ahly, stabbing them and throwing them off bleachers.

A narrow exit corridor turned into a death trap as crowds of fans fled into it, only to be crushed against a locked gate as their rivals attacked them from behind. A network of zealous Al-Ahly soccer fans known as Ultras vowed vengeance, accusing the police of intentionally letting rivals attack them because they have been among the most aggressive of Egypt’s revolutionaries. Ultras were at the forefront of the anti-government uprising — first against toppled leader Hosni Mubarak a year ago and now against the military that took his place in power. “Either they will die or we will die,” one Ultra said, referring to the police, as he joined a march by some 10,000 people on the Cairo headquarters of the Interior Ministry, which oversees the security forces. He would only give his first name, Islam, for fear of reprisal by police.

Three most-wanted terror leaders killed

Time is running out HERZLIYA, Israel (AP) — U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon warned Thursday that time is running out for a Mideast peace deal and urged Israel to make goodwill gestures, including easing its blockade of Gaza, to help lure the Palestinians back to negotiations. Ban attended a security conference in Israel just hours after visiting Gaza, where dozens of Palestinians pelted his armored convoy with shoes and sticks, accusing him of being unfairly biased toward Israel. Ban met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas this week to try to salvage low-level talks on borders and security arrangements between Israel and a future Palestinian state.

OUT OF THE BLUE Roseanne for president? WASHINGTON (AP) — Roseanne Barr said Thursday she’s running for the Green Party’s presidential nomination — and it’s no joke. The actress-comedian said in a statement that she’s a longtime supporter of the party and looks forward to working with people who share her values. She said the two major parties aren’t serving the American people. “The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants — bought and paid for by the 1% — who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,” Barr said.

The march turned into a call for the ruling military council of generals, led by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, to surrender power. “Say it out loud, the council must leave!” the marchers chanted, shouting to people in residential buildings along the way. “Get down from your balconies, Tantawi killed your children!” The military has faced protests for months led by secular and liberal youth groups demanding an end to its rule — and the soccer riot added to criticism that the generals have mismanaged the transition from Mubarak’s rule. Opponents accuse the generals of being as autocratic as the ousted president and of preserving much of his regime. They say elements in the police and former regime figures have been working behind the scenes to undermine the revolution and prevent real change.

DONALD TRUMP greets Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, after announcing his endorsement of Romney during a news conference, Thursday in Las Vegas.

Trump endorses Mitt Romney LAS VEGAS (AP) — With his trademark flair for spectacle, Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president Thursday on the famed Las Vegas strip — just hours after Newt Gingrich’s advisers were spreading the word that The Donald would be anointing him instead. Trump’s endorsement seemed likely to affect this Saturday’s Nevada primary — and the GOP nomination fight in general — about as much as a Sin City breeze disturbs the real estate mogul’s legendary hair. But he managed to create a stir of a different sort, at least for a day. Romney said he was glad to get the support, but he seemed almost bemused to be caught up in the Trumpian drama. “There are some things you just can’t imagine happening. This is one of them,” Romney said with a smile, looking out at the reporters and cameras jammed into the lobby of the hotel complex that bears Trump’s name. The real estate mogul had entered to applause, with Romney and his wife, Ann, at his side “Mitt is tough, he’s smart, he’s sharp and he’s not going

to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country we all love,” Trump said. He vigorously shook Romney’s hand and said, “Go out and get ‘em. You can do it.” But the endorsement was just the finale for a puzzling chain of events that began Wednesday when Trump’s office announced he would be flying to Las Vegas for a “major announcement” related to the presidential contest. Trump had announced last spring he would not run for the Republican nomination but had hinted as recently as last month that he might run for president as an independent. What would he say in Las Vegas? Gingrich advisers suggested Trump had sent “signals” that he planned endorse the former House speaker. The Gingrich team began leaking word of an impending endorsement to news organizations including The Associated Press. Nope. Reporters learned Thursday that Trump would be endorsing Romney instead. Earlier, on a tour of a Las Vegas manufacturing facility, Gingrich made clear he had gotten the message.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippine military said it killed three of Southeast Asia’s most-wanted terrorist leaders in a U.S.-backed airstrike that significantly weakens an al-Qaida-linked network that had used islands in the southern Philippines as a hideout and training base. The dawn strike targeting a militant camp on a remote island killed at least 15 people, including Malaysian Zulkifli bin Hir, also known as Marwan, a top leader of the regional Jemaah Islamiyah terror network, said military spokesman Col. Marcelo Burgos. The U.S. had offered a $5 million reward for the capture of Marwan, a U.S.-trained engineer accused of involvement in deadly bombings in the Philippines and in training militants. Also killed Thursday were the leader of the Philippinebased Abu Sayyaf militants, Umbra Jumdail, and a Singaporean leader in Jemaah Islamiyah, Abdullah Ali, who used the guerrilla name

Muawiyah, Burgos said. Police recovered the bodies, which were “positively identified by police and our intelligence informants at the site,” Burgos said. However, two Philippine security officials with knowledge of the airstrike told The Associated Press that Marwan’s body was not found, though bombs shattered the house where he was believed to have been. They said the body of Jumdail, also known as Dr. Abu Pula, was buried Thursday. One of the officials said the dead included Jumdail’s son, also an Abu Sayyaf fighter. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to reporters. A U.S. official in Washington confirmed the strike on Jolo Island, an impoverished region 600 miles (950 kilometers) south of Manila, and said the Pentagon provided assistance in one of the region’s most successful anti-terror operations in years.

Authorities reveal past complaint LOS ANGELES (AP) — Deputies recommended in 1994 that an attempted fondling charge should be filed against a teacher now suspected of taking bondage-style photographs of children in his class, but prosecutors refused, saying there wasn’t enough evidence, authorities disclosed Thursday. The investigation came after a 10-year-old girl claimed elementary school teacher Mark Berndt reached toward her genitals during class and she pushed his hand away, sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Scott said. The details of the 18-yearold case and other claims by two former students about strange behavior by Berndt surfaced just three days after his arrest. The allegations raised further questions about why he wasn’t disciplined by school officials, who have been lambasted by some parents for waiting a year to reveal Berndt was suspected of photograph-

ing children for sexual thrills. Only parents of children identified as victims were told by authorities about the most recent investigation. School officials and investigators said proper procedures were followed to investigate and build a case against the teacher. Scott said the incident involving the 10-year-old occurred in September 1993 but wasn’t reported by the girl’s mother to officials at Miramonte Elementary School until the following January. The Los Angeles Times said the girl realized the teacher’s behavior was wrong and came forward to her mother after seeing an “Oprah” show about inappropriate touching. School officials notified the Sheriff’s Department, and the results of the investigation were sent to prosecutors with a recommendation to pursue a charge of committing a lewd act on a minor under the age of 14, Scott said.

Mix cinnamon and apples in a bowl and then spread evenly out in a cake pan. Layer the cake mix on top of the apples. Melt butter and drizzle over the cake mix evenly. Then sprinkle the brown sugar on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until apples are tender. Cake mix will still appear white.

On the menu for Sunday supper besides barbecued chicken was mashed potatoes, gravy, macaroni and cheese, corn, bread and butter, onion slices, hot peppers, ice cream and chocolate cake.

Dear Heloise: We stayed at a motel this summer that provided a complimentary breakfast, but also a “breakfast on the go” lunch sack, and in it was a bottle of water, an apple, chocolate and a healthfood bar. Was it ever handy and delicious as we traveled. So, when we had company, I made “breakfast on the go” bags for the two of them. They planned to shop all day, so I labeled it the “shopping survival kit,” and they said it was wonderful.

NFL fans don’t seem to care too much about the Pro Bowl, because the real deal is the Super Bowl, which will be held Sunday in Indianapolis. Wanting to know what area folks thought about the impending rematch of the Giants and the Patriots, I headed to the Downtown Barbershop on the square in Sidney. Owner Andrew Steenrod says that “football is probably the No. 1 topic” of conversation there. The 33-year-old barber, who started the business nine years ago, believes the New England Patriots are the team with the advantage, although he admits that NY is a “well-balanced team,” too. Steenrod feels that he should pull for the Patriots, since Tom Brady was his fantasy football quarterback. The young business owner is a Cleveland Browns fan himself.

R-Illinois, I introduced the National Manufacturing Strategy Act of 2011, which seeks to increase manufacturing jobs, identify emerging technologies to enhance U.S. competitiveness and strengthen the manufacturing sectors in which the U.S. is most competitive. And finally, we must work to add 21st century manufacturing jobs in Ohio — and ensure that our workers have the skills to fill those positions. I’ve long called for the renewal of a research and development tax credit known as the Advanced Manufacturing Tax Credit, or 48C. This credit has already helped many Ohio companies create jobs and transition to the clean energy economy. I’ve also called for the passage of the Strengthening Employment Clusters to Organize Regional Success (SECTORS) Act, which would help workers train for high-tech jobs in their region. By tailoring workforce development to the needs of regional, high-growth industries, more Bipartisan vote workers will receive jobs and Though my bill cleared the more businesses will be atSenate by a bipartisan vote of 63-35, leaders in the U.S. House tracted to the region based. of Representatives have yet to Create jobs bring it to the floor for a vote.

And in December, a federal appeals court ruled that the United States cannot place tariffs on subsidized imports from countries like China — the same tariffs that have helped create jobs at dozens of companies, like V&M Star Steel, where Elizabeth’s son Bryan is hard at work. So the question is: How can we strengthen manufacturing? That starts with enforcing trade law, which may be the best jobs plan that doesn’t cost taxpayers 1 cent. Last year, the biggest bipartisan jobs bill to pass the Senate was my Currency Exchange Rate Oversight Reform Act of 2011, a bill to crack down on China’s unfair currency manipulation. Currency manipulation is an illegal trade practice in which the Chinese government intentionally devalues its own currency against the United States dollar, giving its exports a price advantage.

AND ENDS

WAYNESBURG, Pa. (AP) — A woman who appeared to not have any teeth in surveillance photos from a bank robbery last month has confessed, apologized and told police she planned the heist because she needed the money for dentures. Evelyn Marie Fuller, 49, remained in a jail Wednesday unable to post bond on bank robbery and other charges filed a day earlier by police in Waynesburg, in western Pennsylvania, where she's accused of robbing the First National Bank on Jan. 20. Arresting Officer Tom Ankrom said Fuller, of Carmichaels, about 10 miles east, explained her motives when she confessed to the crime. "During her confession, she stated she wanted to use the money to pay for dentures she was unable to get through welfare until next year," Ankrom said. Police distributed a surveillance photo of the robber, who appeared to be toothless, and an unnamed witness went to police and told them he had loaned Fuller the coat the robber was seen wearing in the picture. The man told police Fuller returned the coat because the zipper didn't work, and police said it matched one the robber is wearing in the picture.

Students explore space exploration BY TERRY PELLMAN HOUSTON — Some EleHardin-Houston mentary School students are getting the opportunity to enjoy some out-ofthis-world learning. The children are third and fourth graders, most of whom are enrolled in classes for gifted students. Fifteen pupils are taking part in “Sailor of the Stars,” a nine-week program. The students are taking part in a special program in conjunction with the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum, located in Wapakoneta, birthplace of Armstrong, first man to set foot on the moon. Elementary Principal Sara Roseberry explained that she wanted to provide some of the more advanced students with a challenging learning experience. Thorough the Armstrong program, students are learning how astronauts

Valentine’s dinner planned for married, engaged couples RUSSIA — The St. Remy Church in Russia will be observing Valentine’s Day by stressing the importance of marriage. Married and engaged couples are invited to a special dinner at St. Remy hall on the evening of Feb. 11. The theme of the night out is, “You’re Still the One.” The doors open at 6 p.m., and dinner commences at 6:30. Attendees will partake of a wedding-style dinner, complete with wine, door prizes for early registrants and a marriage blessing. Couples wishing to attend must be registered by 9 a.m. Monday. For

tickets, contact St, Remy Church at (937) 5263437, or email Nicole@StRemyChurch.com. The cost is $25 per couple. Dinner coordinator is Nicole Muhlenkamp. Others working on the arrangements are Jen and Steve Bowman, Eric and Nicole Voisard, Greg and Rose Pleiman, and and Heather Kent Borchers. Muhlenkamp explained that the event provides the opportunity for couples to “have an evening that honors marriage, and also strengthens and encourages married couples” to observe their vows.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of regularity of church attendance. Speakers will be Greg and Stephanie Schutte, married for 18 years. Greg is the director of Marriage Works in Dayton. The couple has been teaching Pre-Cana workshops for over seven years. The Schuttes were the speakers at last year’s Valentine’s Day dinner, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Muhlenkamp said that some in attendance wished the program could have lasted longer. More than 90 couples were at the dinner.

the school. Roseberry is pleased that the program involves a lot of science, math skill, writing skill and some principles of engineering. Another key factor is the use of critical thinking. The students are required to engage in teamwork and problem solving. The program takes the participants through the entire process of space travel, from blastoff to a precision landing. Along the way, they must study how to cope with the functions of everyday life in a confined space. There must be exercise, sleep, and the ability to look down at earth and understand its geography. Meals must be planned, experiments carried out and flight calculations completed. Some of this is accomplished by constructing and flying model gliders, then recording flight results. Then, upon return to earth, the astronauts must prepare for press conferences. Students must have an assigned role as a

the school on Mondays for the after-school sessions. After several weeks of sessions at Houston, the students will travel to Wapakoneta to visit the museum. They will get to see the various exhibits, and examine some small rockets being brought in for their visit. The students involved express great enthusiasm for the special learning experience. Alex Freytag, daughter of Andy and Sandi Freytag, said that she likes the overall space program activities. For Hannah Hollinger, daughter and Chad Beth Hollinger, of one of the best parts is learning the history of the space program. Blake Jacobs, son of Paul and Kimberley Jacobs, said that he also enjoys the history lesson but also rocket engineering. Roseberry expressed her gratitude to Shawn McElroy, gifted coordinator for the Shelby County Educational Services center, for his assistance in arranging for the program.

member of the spacecraft crew. One must serve as the commander, another as the pilot and others as mission specialists and payload specialists. Asked if she has heard any of the students express the desire to become astronauts, Roseberry laughs and replies that all of them have done so. The principal noted there has been a de-emphasis on space travel, since the program is in a state of uncertainty. She wants the students to understand the importance of what has already taken place. The program takes students from the history of ancient Chinese rocketry to the International Space Station. Students become acquainted with how vehicles were named, which facilities control the various aspects of space missions, and learn the names of astronauts who have played important roles in our history of space exploration.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Make friends with your bank account today. Make sure you know what’s happening with banking, shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances. (Something’s up.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be patient with partners and close friends, because little arguments can break out easily today. People are intense, rebellious and very independent in their thinking today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your work routine will be interrupted due

to computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages and canceled meetings. Just accept this, and things will be fine. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Parents should know that this is an accidentprone day for your children, so be extra vigilant. You also need to be extra patient with your kids, because it’s a harder day for them. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Minor breakages could occur at home today, or small appliances might break down. Try to allow extra time for everything that you’re doing. If you’re patient and you have enough time, none of this will rattle you too much. YOU BORN TODAY It’s curious that you set high standards for yourself, and yet you’re also very aware of your limitations. You might say you’re a realistic perfectionist (if there is such a thing). You can be highly entertaining, especially when telling stories. In the coming year, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2003. Birthdate of: Rob Corddry, actor/comedian; Natalie Imbruglia, singer/actress; Gabrielle Anwar, actress.

DONOHUE: My daughter, a hospital nurse, has seen patients with arthritis respond to acupuncture treatments. One patient my daughter saw was screaming with arthritis pain. One day my daughter came into the hospital and saw this person walking around. She asked how, and was told that the patient got acupuncture treatment. I had back problems that were gone with acupuncture treatment. You said needles are inserted into the skin.

APPREHENSIVE BRIDE-TO-BE DEAR APPREHENSIVE: You need to be up front and sort this out with Claire before issuing an invitation. It is possible that her husband is legally enjoined from having contact with minors and could not attend your wedding even if invited. If you prefer that he not attend, you need to have the courage to say so. It probably won’t be the first time she has heard it. But safety of the young people, not to mention your peace of mind, must come first. DEAR ABBY: A few months ago I joined a small church. It had a sign-up sheet for people to bring food to an event.

Action begins at 5:30 today and resumes at 10 a.m. on Saturday. “From day one, our goal has been to win the GWOC North,” McCracken said. “Vandalia is the team to beat and you can never count them out.” Sidney’s seeded wrestlers include the following: 103: Alex Willman, fifth 113: Jacob Sharp, fifth 126: Cody Davis, second 132: Rhett Rosengarten, alternate 138: Mason Calvert, first 145: Ryan Penley, fifth 152: Derek Spangler, third 170: Garrick Ginter, fifth The tournament will include all 18 teams in the GWOC, and McCracken said the top three will likely be Centerville, Fairmont and Beavercreek, in no particular order.

Ailing Gronkowski returns INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Rob Gronkowski practiced with the New England Patriots for the Super Bowl for the first time Thursday. Now coach Bill Belichick is waiting to see how the All-Pro tight end’s injured ankle responds. Gronkowski, recovering from a high sprain in his left ankle, participated on a limited basis for the first time since being injured Jan. 22 in the third quarter of the 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC championship game. “He did some things. He didn’t do everything,” Belichick said. “We’ll see how he is (Friday). I think that will be the big key.”

Gronkowski, who set an NFL single-season record for tight ends with 17 touchdown catches, took part during

the second half of the nearly two-hour practice for Sunday’s championship game against the New York Giants. “It was fine,” Belichick said, “It was a good test for him, too, at least. At least he was out here and did some things to see how it feels. We’ll see how it goes.” Gronkowski wore a removable boot for a week before discarding it Monday. Teammates have expressed confidence that he would play Sunday against the New York Giants. “I know he’s going to be ready,” tight end Aaron Hernandez said. “It’s not like he broke anything or he can’t walk on it.

Tribe, Kotchman reach deal CLEVELAND (AP) — After exploring other options and coming up empty this winter, the Cleveland Indians may have finally found their new first baseman: Casey Kotchman. The team agreed to terms Thursday night on a one-year, $3 million contract with Kotchman, a free agent, two people familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is not expected to be announced until Friday. Kotchman can make an additional $1.75 million in performance bonuses, one of the persons said. Kotchman batted a career-best .306 with 10 homers and 48 RBIs in a career-high 146 games for Tampa Bay last season. It was a breakout year for the 28-year-old, who signed a minor league contract with the Rays last January. Kotchman was one of only three AL First basemen — Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera and Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez were the others — to finish in the top 10 in both batting average and on-base percentage while appearing in at

least 40 games at the position. Kotchman is expected to compete for the Indians’ starting job at first during training camp with Matt LaPorta and Russ Canzler, who signed with the club earlier this week. LaPorta has been a major disappointment for the Indians, who made finding a quality hitter at first one of their offseason priorities. The team couldn’t afford Prince Fielder, one of the gems of this year’s free agent class, and the Indians were rejected by Carlos Pena, who spurned their one-year offer and re-signed with the Rays after a year with the Chicago Cubs. Kotchman, a solid hitter and superb fielder, could be their answer. Because LaPorta still has a minor league option, it’s possible he could begin next seasons at Triple-A Columbus. Kotchman also has a much better glove, another plus in his favor to win the starting job. Kotchman bats lefthanded and is a career. 268 hitter with 59 homers in eight seasons with the Angels, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle and Tampa Bay.

The Patriots will taper off their activity at Friday’s session. “Obviously, we don’t have much new going in, just kind of making sure everything we have going in we’ve got right,” Belichick said. The Patriots plan to hold a walk through on Saturday.

ey, Indianapolis. A Manning will be playing in your Super Bowl, after all. No, not that one. It’ll be Eli Manning leading the New York Giants to a Super Bowl rematch against the New England Patriots – and this time on older brother Peyton’s home field. Four years after New York stunned previously undefeated New England in the Arizona desert, they’ll play a Super repeat. Eli vs. Brady. Coughlin vs. Belichick. The Patriots are rolling into the Super Bowl having won 10 straight, with their last loss being to – you guessed it – the Giants, 24-20 back in early November. Patriots-Giants. One more time.

Ahmad Bradshaw has more power than his size might indicate. Has 14 receptions in the playoffs. Backup Brandon Jacobs rushed for 571 yards and seven TDs during the season.
