Alexis Deitz 17, Sidney Daughter of Paul Deitz “Yes, I believe they should be allowed to fight on the front lines, but we shouldn’t be drafted.”

Mary Smith Sidney Christian Academy Superintendent “If they are physically and mentally qualified for that position then they should be allowed to serve.”

Mary Kalivoda 17, Sidney Daughter of John and Cindy Kalivoda “I don’t think they should, particularly in the case of a married couple where a child could lose both of their parents.”

Lori Reineke Sidney Machine operator “No, I don’t think that women should be on the front line where they can be shot and killed. I don’t think that’s a woman’s place.”

David Wynn Sidney Pastor “I’m not favorable of that decision. I have personal reasons. I don’t think it’s all that necessary. Men have been serving faithfully for years.”

Douglas Leslie Sidney Retired “Absolutely not. I don’t think females were created to go into battle. In case of a wound to a female’s body, men should not be allowed to view her body. No kid wants to see their mother return home missing a limb.”

Obama says he won’t hesitate on women in combat WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he would have no hesitation ordering women into combat and explained that, as a practical matter, they’re already serving that role. Obama, who spoke with CBS shortly before Sunday’s Super Bowl game, was asked about the recent order ending the Pentagon’s ban on women serving in combat. Obama said women soldiers are already vulnerable to attack and they’ve been wounded and killed carrying out their jobs. He said they are taking great risks should not be prevented from advancing in their careers. The change overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units, and is expected to open up more than 230,000 combat positions that have been off limits to women.

Main Ave. Firefighters, with mutual aid from Anna, Lockington and Port Jefferson fire departments were called out the first time at 5:16 p.m. Thursday. They were called back to the scene at 5:41 a.m. Friday when the fire rekindled. Sidney fire officials report the first fire was caused by hot embers from a burn barrel that was being used in close proximity to the barn. The embers ignited some dry vegetation near the barn and ignited the outside wall of the barn. Fire crews were on the scene about an hour putting out the fire.

Sidney man injured in Logan Co. crash BELLEFONTAINE — A Sidney man suffered serious injuries in a one-vehicle crash on Ohio 47 in front of Benjamin Logan School at 6:45 p.m. Sunday. The Logan County Sheriff ’s Office reported that Michael Smith, 23, of 202 S. Vandemark Road, was driving a 1996 Chevy Corsica westbound on Ohio 47 when he went off the right side of the then drove road, through the school yard and struck a concrete

light post. Smith, who was not wearing a seat belt, was transported from the scene by MedFlight to Grant Medical Center in Columbus. He was listed in fair conditon Friday night. A medical condition may have been a factor in the crash. Smith’s vehicle suffered heavy damage. Rushcreek Fire and EMS assisted at the scene. Deputies continue their investigation.

Reports indicate that the homeowner, Emily Brown, was home at the time and was alerted to the fire by a passing motorist. Old discarded household items were stored in the barn, along with corn silage in an old grain storage area in the hay mow. At 5:41 a.m. Friday, Brown noticed the barn had ignited and called 911. Flames were showing through the roof when firefighters arrived on the scene. Mutual aid was provided by Anna, Lockington and Port Jefferson fire departments for ad-

ditional manpower. A water supply was provided with tanker trucks since there are no fire hydrants in the area. Firefighters also used foam to make sure the fire was out. Firefighters remained on the scene for approximately two hours to put out the stubborn fire, which was embedded deep in the corn silage. Fire officials report high winds also made it more difficult to extinguish the blaze. There were no injuries reported. Damage was set $15,000.

Council OKs annexation, Agency holds The Big Dinner EcoSmart program MINSTER — In a brief meeting Monday night, Minster Village Council approved annexation of property from Jackson Township and OK'd the extension of the EcoSmart program with American Municipal Power (AMP). Council approved annexation of property owned by Janet Weaver into the Minister corporation limits. The property is located along Ohio 119, but the owner has asked to be incorporated into Minster. Council approved the annexation without ob-

jection, pending approval of the Jackson Township Trustees. Village Administrator Don Harrod informed council that AMP was requiring a new contract for the EcoSmart Choices program. A new contract was required because AMP was now offering a community sustainability grant. Money from this grant can be used to reduce carbon footprints, including such programs as planting and replacing trees. The program will continue to reward individ-

uals and businesses for using renewable energy sources as a way to help reduce AMP’s carbon footprint. Harrod encouraged council to sign the contract and first reading of the ordinance passed. Harrod noted that a position at the wastewater plant was still not filled. They had 15 applications and the process is reportedly moving forward. The goal is to present a candidate at the next meeting. also adHarrod dressed the purchase of

a new diesel truck. At its last meeting, council voted to move out of the Ohio Purchasing Program as it was believed the program limited the village to biodiesel trucks only. However, Harrod said he discovered the program would in fact allow them to purchase a diesel truck at 3 percent above manufacturer's invoice. Harrod asked council for approval to use the program as it offers the maximum cost-saving. Council approved payment of invoices totaling $763,168.

Minster FCCLA notes past, future activities for 2012-13 MINSTER – The Minster chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America has had a busy year so far, with quite a bit more planned for the rest of the year. Three members attended the FCCLA National Cluster Meeting on Nov. 16-18 in Indianapolis. There were sessions on texting and driving, relationships, healthy leadership for your club, FCCLA recruitment, fundraising ideas, bullying, personal achievement, getting involved in FCCLA leadership, and networking opportunities. The members returned to Minster determined to implement one of FCCLA’s missions m, which is no texting while driving. They have taken the initiative to contact

the Ohio State Highway Patrol and have a speaker come to Minster High School to address “no texting and driving,” especially related to the new laws in Ohio related to cell phone usage and driving. That date is not yet determined, but coming up in February or March. Several members are working on their Star Events and/or their Personal Achievement projects for competition at the Regional Rally on March 2 at Vantage Career Center in Van Wert. This is the day that the regional schools bring their FCCLA members to compete and to qualify to take their event to the FCCLA State Conference in April. Members have to achieve a “gold” rating to qualify to go to state. For

Star Events, Minster has a Parliamentary Procedure team, Life Event Planning team, Promote and Publicize team, Career Investigation as an individual event, and Nutrition and Wellness as an individual event. For Personal Achievement, Minster has three people completing their Power of One and one person doing Dynamic Leadership and Leaders at Work, and Outstanding Chapter. In November, FCCLA had a “Thirty One” fundraiser. It ran from Nov. 5-27. The members raised $474.74. This extra money will help pay expenses for competition and the chapter is purchasing shirts for the members to wear at the FCCLA conferences since FCCLA has incorporated

a very strict dress code to their conferences at all levels including regional, state, cluster and national. FCCLA Week is Feb. 11-15. The Minster chapter has several things planned for that week. The group will provide a teacher lunch, cannedfood drive, a bake sale, possibly a “smash a car.” The homeroom with the most cans will be provided a pizza party. There will be another blood drive Feb. 19. If the chapter is able to get 50 good units, it will be awarded a $500 scholarship for a high school senior involved in FCCLA. The public is welcome.The event will begin at 8 a.m. The FCCLA State Leadership Conference is April 18 and 19 in Columbus. The chapter will be attending.

Board discusses cell tower Shelby County Commissioners hosted their counterparts from Auglaize County on Thursday to discuss an upcoming public hearing concerning Verizon’s plans to erect a cell phone tower in the flight area of the Neil Armstrong Airport in New Knoxville. Commissioner Bob Guillozet said Shelby County Commissioners are part of the Neil Armstrong Airport Advisory Board because a portion of the flight zone for the airport is located in Shelby County. In addition to zoning approval, Verizon also must get the OK from the airport advisory board before

the tower can be constructed. Guilliozet said commissioners will participate in a public hearing set for 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, March 12, at the airport. Later in the day the commissioners conducted a viewing concerning a request to vacate the right of way for an abandoned road in Perry Township. Property owners on each side of the abandoned road, which is located off Thompson Road near Pemberton, and Perry Township trustees have requested the right of way be vacated. A public hearing will be conducted at 10 a.m. Thursday.

After putting out a dryer fire Thursday night, Sidney firefighters were able to locate a family’s pets and return them to the homeowner unharmed. Firefighters were dispatched to 805 Lynn St., at 8:50 p.m. on a report of a dryer fire. On arrival, firefighters enmoderate countered smoke coming out of the first floor of the home.

After discovering that the dryer was on fire, Morrow closed the door to the utility room which contained the fire and prevented further damage to the home. Investigation revealed that an electrical malfunction caused the dryer to overheat and catch fire. Damage was estimated at $2,000.

“Of course, you want higher rates of graduation because to some degree resources are wasted when a student attempts to complete a degree and fails,” said Johnson, Ohio’s former lieutenant governor and development director. “But the most important issue for the state’s economy is that the total number of graduates goes up.” Ohio State University is projected to receive a 3 percent increase under the plan, with three branch campuses experiencing cuts. OSU President E. Gordon Gee helped work out the funding deal, which Kasich has praised for its innovation. Kent State and Cleveland State would see increases of more than 5 percent, Wright State of 3.5 percent and others smaller increases. Overall, five universi-

ties, seven branch campuses and five community colleges are expected to receive cuts. Bowling Green would see a reduction in state funding of 4.2 percent under the new formula, with lesser cuts headed to Shawnee State (2.4 percent) and Central State (2.1 percent). The universities of Akron and Toledo would see cuts of less than 1 percent. Owens State would face the steepest cut among community colleges, a reduction of 3 percent, followed by Rio Grande (2.1 percent), Lakeland (1.6 percent), Clark State (0.5 percent) and Cuyahoga State (0.4 percent). Keen said additional money is set aside for community colleges based on certain “success points” in educational achievement that are being identified.


COLUMBUS (AP) — A condemned man who fatally shot an adult bookstore security guard at the end of a multistate crime spree “gratuitously brutalized” innocent people who posed no threat to him, the Ohio Parole Board said Friday in rejecting the inmate’s plea for mercy. Frederick Treesh, sentenced to die for killing Henry Dupree in a 1994 robbery, had argued he accepted responsibility for the killing but that it was an unintentional consequence of a struggle for a gun while he was high. The parole board disagreed, ruling unani-

mously that the evidence showed Dupree was seated when shot and hadn’t shown any sign of being a threat to Treesh. The board also said Treesh’s decision to shoot a clerk in the face as he left the store suggests Treesh’s “murderous intent” when coming to the store. Treesh and his co-defendant “gratuitously brutalized, humiliated and killed innocent people, most of whom, like Dupree, posed no real or perceived threat to them,” the board said. The decision came just under a month before Treesh’s scheduled March 6 execution. Gov. John Kasich has the final say. Prosecutors say Treesh, 48, and the co-de-

KIMPEL fice continues to demand repayment of Kimpel’s salary from the time Kimpel was suspended from the office of sheriff, following his indictment on sexual battery charges in Auglaize County and following his indictment and subsequent conviction on a felony charge of misusing a computer. He was sentenced on June 8. In the response, the AG’s office states that Kimpel’s attorney has “failed to state a claim for which relief can be granted” and alleges that the “doctrine of unclean hands” applies in the case. In Ohio, the unclean hands doctrine is used when someone who has done wrong makes a

fendant robbed banks and businesses, committed sexual assaults, stole cars, committed carjackings and shot someone to death in a Michigan robbery during a spree that also took them to Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Treesh was sentenced to die in Ohio for killing Dupree in the town of Eastlake on the shore of Lake Erie. Attorneys for Treesh argued for clemency last week, while prosecutors presented their case against sparing Treesh for a murder they say was intentional. Treesh’s attorneys described him as a cocaine addict who was high during the robbery and is deeply sorry for what happened. “Hindsight, regret

and remorse cannot turn back the clock and cannot return Mr. Dupree’s life,” they said in a petition for clemency. “What Fred can do and has tried to do is to help prevent others from making the same mistakes he did” by teaching them to avoid drugs. His lawyers also alleged Treesh’s rights were violated during a prolonged interrogation as he was coming down from a drug high, which contributed to his death sentence. They also say Treesh suffers from health problems, including a seizure disorder, that raise concerns Ohio’s lethal injection process would cause him suffering amounting to cruel and unusual punishment.

From Page 1 claim and that person has not acted properly in the past. The doctrine questions whether it would be fair to award judgment to the person, in this case, Kimpel. The AG argues that, in spite of Kimpel’s arguments to the contrary, the Ohio Revised Code allows for the recoupment of Kimpel’s salary. The AG also denies Kimpel’s claims that a “real … controversy exists” between Kimpel and the commissioners involving the statutes and maintains the county is entitled to recoup the money. The AG is asking that Kimpel’s attempts to avoid paying the money back to the county be denied.

Kimpel, represented by Michael Rumer of Rumer and Maisch Co., LLC, Lima, argues that while he was indicted in Auglaize County on a charge of sexual battery and accepted a suspension from office, the charge was dropped as part of a plea bargain. He claims it was the sexual battery charge under which the suspension was obtained and under which the AG’s office is suing to recoup his salary. At dispute is money Kimpel was paid during the time he was suspended from office, totaling $60,424. On Thursday, attorneys for Kimpel and the AG held a telephone conference regarding the

If the case is not resolved by those motions, the court will be scheduling another conference call to place the case on the court docket for trial. Judge Stevenson has informed attorneys in the case he is recusing himself due to a possible conflict of interest and not wanting to have any appearance of impropriety. A request has been sent to the Ohio Supreme Court asking it to assign a visiting judge in the case. An assignment is expected within a couple of weeks.

The 81 new troopers are expected to beef up the number of troopers in the state as recent cadet classes haven’t kept up with attrition. Patrol spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston said the agency has been short staffed in recent years because it didn’t graduate any cadets in 2008 or 2010. The graduating class will bring the patrol’s numbers up to about 1,600 sworn officers around the state, a level not reached since 2006.


under the new formula, with lesser cuts headed to Shawnee State (2.4 percent) and Central State (2.1 percent). The universities of Akron and Toledo would see cuts of less than 1 percent. Owens State would face the steepest cut among community colleges, a reduction of 3 percent, followed by Rio Grande (2.1 percent), Lakeland (1.6 percent), Clark State (0.5 percent) and Cuyahoga State (0.4 percent). Keen said additional money is set aside for community colleges

based on certain “success points” in educational achievement that are being identified. “There’s also additional work that’s going to be done on the success point part of the formula, to try to identify other factors that meet the goal of not only graduation but also what is successful completion at the two-year sector,” he said. “There’s thought going on at the Board of Regents about standardized certificates that students in the two-year sector might achieve.”

CLEVELAND (AP) — The ringleader in hairand beard-cutting attacks on fellow Amish in Ohio was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison and 15 family members received sentences of one year to seven years. “The victims were terrorized and traumatized,” U.S. District Court Judge Dan Aaron Polster said in sentencing leader Sam Mullet Sr., 67, who sat without emotion. The judge said the defendants had violated the constitutional rights protecting religious practice that had benefited them as Amish — such as an exemption from jury service and allowing Amish children to leave school at age 14. “Each of you has received the benefits of that First Amendment,” Polster said. The judge said the defendants have two weeks to file appeals of their sentences or convictions. Defense attorneys have indicated such appeals are likely. Before his sentencing, Mullet told the judge that he had been accused of running a cult, which he

LA ex-cop ‘disturbed, self-obsessed’



Today is Saturday, Feb. 9, the 40th day of 2013. There are 325 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 9, 1943, the World War II battle of Guadalcanal in the southwest Pacific ended with an Allied victory over Japanese forces. On this date: • In 1773, the ninth president of the United States, William Henry Harrison, was born in Charles City County, Va. • In 1825, the House of Representatives elected John Quincy Adams president after no candidate received a majority of electoral votes. • In 1861, Jefferson Davis was elected provisional president of the Confederate States of America at a congress held in Montgomery, Ala. • In 1870, the U.S. Weather Bureau was established. • In 1933, the Oxford Union Society at Oxford University debated, then endorsed, 275-153, a motion “that this House will in no circumstances fight for its King and Country,” a stand widely denounced by Britons. • In 1942, daylight-saving “War Time” went into effect in the United States, with clocks turned one hour forward. • In 1950, in a speech in Wheeling, W.Va., Sen. Joseph McCarthy, R-Wis., charged the State Department was riddled with Communists. • In 1963, the Boeing 727 went on its first-ever flight as it took off from Renton, Wash. • In 1964, The Beatles made their first live American television appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” broadcast from New York on CBS. • In 1971, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake in California’s San Fernando Valley claimed 65 lives. The crew of Apollo 14 returned to Earth after man’s third landing on the moon. • In 1983, in a dramatic reversal from 50 years earlier (see above), the Oxford Union rejected, 416-187, a motion “that this House would not fight for Queen and Country.” • In 2002, Britain’s Princess Margaret, the high-spirited and unconventional sister of Queen Elizabeth II, died in London at age 71. • Ten years ago: The U.S. Navy ended its last bombing exercises on Puerto Rico’s Vieques Island.

ORANGE, Calif. (AP) — A photo never tells the whole story, and that’s especially true for Christopher Dorner. The images on his Facebook page are essentially the same: Dorner, smiling, seemingly loving life and all it offers. But they accompany a rambling document where he portrays himself as a real-life Rambo, an expert in weapons, explosives and military tactics who will stop at nothing to avenge his 2008 firing from the Los Angeles Police Department. It’s incongruous and it underscores the complexity of the man who now is the most wanted in America, accused of killing three people as he carries out his vendetta. Where Dorner sees himself as a warrior, others see someone much different. The 6-foot, 270-pounder is a physical hulk who — despite his size — seemed to battle deepseated insecurities, lived with his mother and cracked under the pressures of police work. Court and police files show that Dorner once began weeping while on duty in a patrol car, awkwardly flashed his police badge on a first date and


It’s in her kiss PENN YAN, N.Y. (AP) — Police say an upstate New York woman passed drugs to her son while kissing him when she visited him in jail. Sheriff's deputies in Yates County tell local media outlets 54-year-old Penn Yan resident Kimberly Margeson was visiting her son last week when she hid oxycodone pills and passed them from her mouth to his while giving him a kiss. Police haven’t said how the drugs were discovered. Margeson pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of criminal sale of a controlled substance and promoting prison contraband. She’s free after posting bail. Authorities say her 30year-old son also was charged with promoting prison contraband. He remains in jail on an unrelated felony weapon possession charge, and a lawyer for him couldn't be contacted.

Of course he has killed people.” “But is he capable of taking on some 1,000 officers looking for him? That’s someone with a personality disorder,” she said. Dorner, 33, is accused of killing a woman last weekend whose father had represented him as he fought to keep his police job, and the woman’s fiance. On Thursday, police say he ambushed two officers, killing one, and then vanished, setting off a manhunt that put police on alert across the Southwest. The search Friday focused on the mountains around Big Bear Lake, about 80 miles east of Los Angeles. Police said officers still were guarding more than 40 people mentioned as targets in the rant. The rambling manifesto was on a Facebook page that also includes smiling pictures of Dorner and critiques or politicians, musicians, and comedians. He also offers commentary on topics from gun control — he wants stricter laws for assault weapons — to sexual abuse by priests to the proper room temperature.

Afghan fashion Locals say Mali suicide show seeks to bomber tied to terror leader empower women BY KRISTA LARSON Associated Press GAO, Mali (AP) — A young militant who locals say had ties with terror leader Moktar Belmoktar blew himself up Friday near a military checkpoint on the outskirts of Gao, fueling fears of a looming insurgency by the jihadists who fled into the nearby desert just two weeks ago. The suicide attack, the first of its kind since the French-led mission began in January, highlights the challenges that remain despite the retaking of northern Mali’s largest town by French and Malian forces nearly two weeks ago. They faced little resistance in initially recapturing Gao, though the discovery of industrial-strength explosives and Friday’s bombing suggest the Islamic radicals are far from defeated. Residents of Gao on Friday described the suicide bomber, who killed only himself, as an 18-year-old Arab man who spoke French well and had lived in the town for about seven months in a house known as a jihadist hideout. They said he was known by the name Al Farouk. Boubacar Armou, the guard who has watched over the home since last year said Belmoktar had visited it as recently as three months ago. The Algerian national who has long operated in Mali, claimed

responsibility for the terror attack on a BP-operated (TSX:BP’U) natural gas plant in Algeria. Other jihadist leaders from the group the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, known as MUJAO, also had stayed in the luxurious two-story home with a verdant courtyard, which the militants took over when they captured Gao last year, the guard said. Meanwhile, French forces surged into the country’s far north near the border with Algeria overnight, retaking Tessalit. French military spokesman Col. Thierry Burkhard confirmed Friday that French and Chadian forces now control the town and airport of Tessalit after an overnight assault involving French special forces who parachuted in to the town. Aicha Belco Maiga, president of the government body representing the area of Tessalit, confirmed the news by telephone from her home in the capital of Bamako, saying she had been in contact with a colleague in Tessalit. “French troops are in Tessalit. They control the entrance to the town, as well as the administrative buildings,” said Maiga. The success of Tessalit, however, was overshadowed by Friday’s attack in Gao and clashes between soldiers in

the capital in Mali’s south. The suicide bomber ignited his explosives belt just after 6 a.m. near a military checkpoint, according to Malian military spokesman Modibo Traore. Hours later, the charred and mangled remains of the bomber’s motorcycle lay strewn in a field not far from the checkpoint. Blood stained the wall on a building where three soldiers stood guard. Malian soldiers said that nearby villagers had taken the bomber’s remains away and buried them following the attack. Residents who heard the blast from their mud-walled homes on the dusty road nearby described the attack. “I was sleeping in my house when I heard the explosion,” said Yanoussa Toure, as he sat on his motorcycle out front with a large bag of rice tied to the back. “It shook so loudly I thought it had hit my house,” said his neighbor, Agali Ouedraogo. Fears have been high of such attacks since the discovery of industrial-strength explosives in Gao earlier this week. A land mine also killed four Malian soldiers last week in the town of Gossi, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) away, fueling fears that Islamic militants may be planting them. Officials at a French military base in Gao declined to comment on the attack.

BLIZZARD the archdiocese urged parishioners to be prudent about attending Sunday Mass and reminded them that, under church law, the obligation “does not apply when there is grave difficulty in fulfilling this obligation.” Halfway through what had been a mild winter across the Northeast, blizzard warnings were posted from parts of New Jersey to Maine. The National Weather Service said Boston could get close to 3 feet of snow by Saturday evening, while most of Rhode Island could receive more than 2 feet, most of it falling overnight Friday into Saturday. Connecticut was bracing for 2 feet, and New York City was expecting as much as 14 inches. By Friday evening, the New York-to-Boston corridor was experiencing blizzard-like conditions, with blowing, swirling snow and freezing rain. Early snowfall was blamed for a 19-car pileup in Cumberland, Maine, that

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan models paraded down a candle-lined catwalk Friday as men and women watched from the audience in a restaurant off a muddy street in Kabul. The rare fashion show in this war-weary capital was a small production but a big idea — part of an Afghan group’s efforts to empower women by breaking down barriers in this highly conservative Muslim society. “The situation always gets tougher and tougher every day by day, but we should not back down. We are here to move on and move forward, so I think if women step up and they show up in this field, I think they will do a good job,” said Shahar Banoo Zeerak, the designer whose clothes were featured in the show. The idea of women on display remains mostly taboo in Afghanistan more than a decade after the 2001 U.S. assault that ousted the Taliban from power. Violence against women is still common in Afghanistan, and there are reports of women being stoned, executed in public or imprisoned for having affairs with men. Friday’s fashion show was organized by Young Women for Change, an independent, nonprofit Afghan organization committed to empowering Afghan women and improving their lives.

From Page 1 caused minor injuries. In Rhode Island, 34,000 homes and businesses lost power. Forecasters said wind gusts up to 75 mph could cause more widespread power outages and whip the snow into fearsome drifts. Flooding was expected along coastal areas still recovering from Superstorm Sandy, which hit New York and New Jersey the hardest and is considered Jersey’s worst natural disaster. Meteorologist Jeff Masters, of Weather Underground, said the winter storm was a collision of two storms and may end up among the Boston area’s Top 5 most intense ever. “When you add two respectable storms together, you’re going to get a knockout punch with this one,” he said. It could break Boston’s alltime snowstorm record of 27.6 inches, set in 2003, forecasters said. The storm also comes almost 35 years to the day after the Blizzard of ‘78, a ferocious storm that dropped 27 inches

of snow, packed hurricaneforce winds and claimed dozens of lives. Masters said the region could get a break from warmer air trailing behind that is expected to push temperature up to the 40s by Monday. “It’s going to be not that difficult to dig out, compared to maybe some other nor’easters in the past, where it stayed cold after the storm went through,” he said. Drivers were urged to stay off the streets lest their cars get stuck, preventing snowplows and emergency vehicles from getting through. New York City ran extra commuter trains to help people get home before the brunt of the storm hit. Amtrak stopped running trains in cities around the Northeast on Friday afternoon. Airlines canceled more than 4,300 flights through Saturday, and New York City’s three major airports and Boston’s Logan Airport shut

down. Interstate 95 was closed to all but essential traffic in Rhode Island, where the governor said power outages remained the biggest threat. “With tree branches laden with heavy, wet snow, the winds picking up and the temperatures plunging all at the same time, it’s a bad combination,” Gov. Lincoln Chafee said. In Massachusetts, Gov. Deval Patrick enacted a statewide driving ban for the first time since the Blizzard of ‘78. Hours before the ban went into effect at 4 p.m., long lines formed at gas stations, some of which were almost out of fuel. James Stone said he was saving the remaining regular gas at his station in Abington, south of Boston, for snowplow drivers. “It hasn’t snowed like this in two years,” Stone said. “Most people are caught way off-guard.”

Christian Academy plans Art from the Heart BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN pspeelman@ Some kids just aren’t very good at basketball. But that doesn’t mean they don’t shine in other arenas. Several years ago, Nancy Kalivoda, of Sidney, stood with Mary Smith, superintendent of Christian Academy Schools, as they watched the middle school girls basketball team play. Among the students was Kalivoda’s granddaughter, Mary Kalivoda. “She wasn’t very good,” Nancy said recently. “I said to Mrs. Smith, ‘I don’t think she’ll ever be a star basketball player, but if they ever have a contest for drawing, she’ll take first prize.” And that comment became the seed which grew into an idea for a school fundraiser centered around art. “I realized we really didn’t have any program to recognize students who were good in art,”

Smith said. So she developed Art from the Heart, the fifth annual edition of which will take place Feb. 16 at the school, 2151 W. Russell Road, at 7 p.m. Open to the public, the event features an exhibit and sale of student artwork, a silent auction, live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and raffles. Tickets are $10. They are available at the door and in advance by calling the school at 4927556. Special tickets for cupcakes at the event are available only in advance. Imagine savoring a delicious cupcake and then finding a $750 diamond inside it. That’s what one lucky person will do. Baked into one of the cupcakes for sale will be a heart-shaped diamond gem, donated by Allison’s Custom Jewelry and valued at $750. Tickets for cupcakes cost $10 each or $25 for three. Call the school to purchase them. “I started drawing when I was five,” Mary said recently. “”I’m self-

taught.” The 17-year-old junior is the daughter of John and Cindy Kalivoda. She has been strongly influenced by Japanese anime (car-

toons) and manga (comic books). “Pokeman was my first introduction to anime,” she said. “I also watched ‘Sailor Moon’

and ‘Card Captor Sakura.’ I didn’t know they were anime at the time. I learned more from the Internet.” Now, she draws figures constantly, in the margins of class notes as well as in more formal formats. They feature over-large eyes, active poses, brightly colored clothes. One of her pieces will be among the 70 in Art from the Heart auction. She drew it with pencil, then lined it with dark graphite, colored it with colored pencil and added sparkle glue. “I usually line most of my work with pen or felt-tip pen,” she said. The young artist also does digital coloring using software. Mary enjoys photography and hopes to be a professional illustrator one day. Art from the Heart patrons can meet Mary and other student painters and sculptors during the event. They will also have the opportunity to bid on artwork, photography and jewelry

by Christian Academy students, a painting titled “The Old Homestead” by Kathy Moeller, ceramic pieces, airplane rides in a 1930 WACO biplane and a Cessna 172, a homemade pie of the month for a year, horseback riding lessons, a muffin of the month, a sitting for a family portrait at Picture This! Photography, and voice lessons. While they’re bidding, they will enjoy performances by Evan Miller and Callum Smith on piano, a duet by Noah and Melody Joines, the Upper Valley Community Church Stick Team, a brass quintet and a barbershop quartet. “Join us for a unique and exciting silent auction experience,” said Smith. “Students in red bow ties known as runners submit your bids for you. Relax, visit with friends, and enjoy the live entertainment while watching the changing bids on a large screen. The evening promises to be an experience you won’t want to miss.”

5/3 Bank helps distressed Program helps with home borrowers find jobs this type of assistance to mortgage customers. “Up to half of mortgage delinquencies are due to job loss,” said Steven Alonso, executive vice president and head of the Consumer Bank, Fifth Third Bancorp. “With NextJob, we immediately recognized an opportunity to go the extra mile to assist our customers. This is specific, one-on-one training that helps people identify their transferable skills and re-gain the financial stability of a new job.” “Fifth Third Bank has demonstrated an inspiring level of customer commitment,” said John Courtney, CEO of NextJob. “The company understood that neither party benefits from a foreclosure. Job loss, followed by the loss of one’s home, is severely damaging to individuals and families. This program is a simple, but big, idea and its time has come for the banking industry.” NextJob’s service features three parts that work cohesively to help

borrowers find meaningful employment: one-onone job coaching, job search software featuring nine modules, and Job Talk, a weekly webinar on a critical job search topic. Together they help Fifth Third borrowers: • Create an effective resume and cover letter that gets the attention of hiring managers • Develop and carry out a detailed job search action plan • Evaluate one’s career direction and identify skills that could transfer to another industry or field • Discover jobs that are open, but never advertised • Use the latest and most effective Internet tools and techniques • Train and prepare for successful interviews. One of the program’s successful participants, now working in the insurance industry said, “I just want to say how much I enjoyed working with my coaches. If it hadn’t been for their work helping me, I prob-

ably would still be unemployed. They gave me such hope and empowered me in ways I never would have used on my own. My self-esteem was very low when I first started working with NextJob, and they were able to make me see that there was a position out there for me if I only believed in myself again and used the tools of NextJob to help me. If for some reason I am back unemployed, it won’t be for long because of what I learned with NextJob.” Another participant said, “I was in the first group of people in the program offered by Fifth Third Bank. I have to say that I feel so fortunate to have been a part of the program. I learned so much and got so much out of the program. I really hope the program continues so it can help others like me. The knowledge one gains from the program is immeasurable.” For more information, visit

CINCINNATI — Fifth Third Bancorp and NextJob, a nationwide reemployment solutions company, have teamed up to offer an industry-first program that gives unemployed mortgage borrowers job search assistance, including oneon-one dedicated coaching, weekly webinars and online job search software, fully paid for by Fifth Third Bank. The two companies piloted the program throughout 2012 with unemployed Fifth Third customers who were in serious risk of default on their mortgages. On average, the individuals had been out of work for 22 months. In the pilot, nearly 40 percent were fully employed after six months and, as a result, the pilot was expanded. With the signing of a multi-year contract with NextJob, Fifth Third Bank moves the program out of pilot phase and incorporates it into the way the Company does business. Fifth Third Bank is the first financial institution to offer

Jenny and I have been good friends for many years. We’re both 13. Lately, Jenny has been acting rather strangely. Her main problem is that she tells “whopper” lies. It’s not just one or two a day; it’s about one or two every five minutes. I’m tired of listening to all of her “fantasies,” and I’m considering dropping her as a friend. I talked to my mom about the problem, and she told me I had to work things out myself. Please give me your advice. —Sissy, Moncton, N.B. SISSY: When people start telling fibs, it’s usually because something has happened to cause the person to lose self-confidence and to suffer from a lack of self-esteem. Talk to your friend, and tell her that you’ve noticed a recent change in her behavior that involved her fabricating a lot of stories. Reaffirm your friendship with her and make her aware that you’ll always be there to listen and to help her when she needs help. Never tell her the friendship is over, even if you decide to spend more time with others. That will only compound the problems she’s experiencing.

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a poor day to listen to your hunches about something. Things are a bit confusing. It’s as if you have Vaseline on your lens. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be careful about leading others down the garden path today. You might think you know what everyone wants, but do you? By tomorrow, things could look different. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful when talking to authority figures today, because you could be offbase. This is not the day to make your pitch or ask for permission. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Travel plans or higher education might need to be changed, adjusted or canceled, because things are fuzzy today. Don’t fall for a pitch if someone is selling snake oil. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a poor day for important discussions about inheritances, shared property or how to deal with the wealth of others. It will all be just hot air ending in nothing. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relations with partners and close friends are important today; nevertheless, you feel that you can’t get a handle on what is said. Your conversation is like two ships passing in the night. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Reduce your expectations of what you can accomplish at work today, because

there will be shortages and delays. Just cope as best you can; dog paddle. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a wonderful day for those of you involved in creative projects. Creating art and enjoying playful activities with children will flow easily in an imaginative way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Family discussions likely will be a bit convoluted today. Everybody will say what they want, but what will actually get done? It’s OK. Just fill your databank. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a poor day to sign important documents or make important decisions. You can feel it in the wind. It’s all rather willy-nilly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be on guard about important financial matters today. Avoid major purchases, and similarly, avoid big decisions about cash flow. You are not clear about what should be done. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Today the Moon is in your sign, but it is very weak. This means it’s floating loosey-goosey, like a helium balloon drifting in the sky. Great for creativity and fun; poor for important, grounded decisions. YOU BORN TODAY You have a studious and inventive mind. You want to improve your surroundings and even the people around you. You strive to make things better, more meaningful, healthier or easier. Although you like to be helpful to others, your personal freedom is almost a survival issue. (It’s vital.) Your year ahead is the beginning of an exciting new cycle. Open any door!

Versailles scheduling appointments for kindergarten registration VERSAILLES — The Versailles Elementary School office is now scheduling appointments for kindergarten registration/screening. The screenings will be held March 19 and 20. Due to the administration of the Ohio Graduation Test, these dates have been changed from those

previously published. Three sessions will be held each day: 8 to 10 a.m., 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., and 1 to 3 p.m. All sessions will begin in the Versailles K-6 gym. Eligible students must live in the Versailles School District and be 5 years old by Sept. 30 to attend kindergarten this fall.

Parents or guardians should call Charlene Watren at the Versailles Elementary office, (937) 526-4681, ext. 1, to make a screening appointment for their child. Call weekdays during February, between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. One parent must attend the two-hour session with the

child. Parents will complete the registration process and attend a JumpStart session while the child completes the screening process. Parents will receive a confirmation letter in early March. Included with that letter will be a registration form that needs to be completed

and returned the day of JumpStart. Parents must also bring a certified birth certificate for the child (one issued by the state with raised seal), Social Security card, any custody papers involving the child, proof of residency and transportation/babysitter information for fall.


The toothbrush as a soldier

Keep your children’s smiles healthy by ensuring that they brush, floss, eat healthy foods, and visit the dentist regularly.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, sponsored by the American Dental Association. The ADA says that teaching your children how to defend their teeth against acid attacks is the best way to prevent tooth decay. When food particles are allowed to stay in the mouth and under the gums, the sugar in the food attracts bacteria and the mouth becomes acidic. These conditions cause an attack on the teeth that leads to decay. Brushing twice a day is an important defense. After brushing the flat parts of the molars, hold the brush against the gums, massage it in a small circle, then brush downward for upper teeth and upward for lower teeth. Doing this all around the jaw helps get food particles out of the spaces between the teeth and gums. Provide a children’s toothpaste and be sure the child spits and rinses without swallowing any.

Once a day, a child’s teeth need to be flossed. Parents may need to floss younger children’s teeth, but it is a daily habit that, along with brushing, beats the bacteria and sugar attack. It will also help children avoid gum disease when they are older. A healthy diet reduces the chances for sugars and bacteria to cause an acid attack. Eating vegetables, fruit, grains, dairy, and lean meats also helps children develop strong teeth. Choosing snacks carefully is another solid tactic. Many seemingly healthy snacks have a high sugar content, so it is important to read nutrition labels on packaging. Even better, offer snacks such as milk, cheese, nuts, or fruits and vegetables as often as possible. Last but not least, having regular checkups with the dentist is absolutely essential in preventing cavities and treating any problems that may arise.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Optimism is a good thing, but realism is necessary as well. Try to find a happy balance between these two qualities today. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) All group activities will be unusually enthusiastic and boisterous today. Be careful about overdoing something or exhorting others to go too far. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your ambition knows no bounds today. Nevertheless, if you’re over the top, you might threaten others, especially a boss or supervisor. Think before you speak and act so that you have no regrets later. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re very excited about travel plans or something having to do with publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Others are equally excited about taking a course or pursuing higher education. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If you have to share something with someone today, don’t give away the farm. In a magnanimous gesture, you might part with more than you really want to let go. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You will attract people to you today who are exuberant and perhaps even overbearing. How do you respond? Do you meet them in kind, or just step aside and let all this wind swoosh by? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You can get an enormous amount done at work today, because you’re enthusiastic, energetic and optimistic. Others will follow your lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a great day for those of you who participate or are involved in sports, because you’re willing to try anything. If you’re on vacation, you’ll be very adventurous. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’ve got big ideas about improvements that you want to introduce at home or perhaps to your family dynamic. Just be careful not to bite off more than you can chew. (And you can chew a lot.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Don’t make promises you cannot keep later just because you’re enthusiastic today. This is not something you generally do, but today it’s a possibility. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be careful in financial matters. Although this is a good day for business and commerce, things might look rosier than they actually are. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You are enthusiastic about life today. Whatever you do, you will do it big! You also might influence others as well. YOU BORN TODAY You have a powerful influence on others. You touch their emotions. In fact, you often are at the center of attention because you are self-confident and hardworking. You feel a responsibility to others at a universal level. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for the past nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.

When I went for my annual exam a couple years ago, I had a DEXA Scan that showed osteopenia, primarily in my spine. I increased my calcium and vitamin D-3 intake and worked hard at doing an indoor conditioning walking program on DVD. I lost 40 pounds (of which 10 have returned, unfortunately). I feel good for the most part, and I work 32 hours a week, spending 75 percent of my time on my feet. This year it was time to have a repeat DEXA Scan, and the report wasn’t what I was hoping to hear. My hips have improved, but the density of my vertebrae stayed the same. “Do weight-bearing exercise. Continue with your calcium and vitamin D-3 supplements,” was the advice. Well, please tell me, what exercise will help my spine, which ap-

speech or videotape one to be played at the event. While reading your letter, I am reminded of a friend, Judith, whom I lost several years ago. Judith had battled cancer for 12 years. After she had completed yet another round of chemo, some of her women friends gathered for a potluck luncheon at her place. The wine was poured and we all glanced at each other, worried that toasting “health” might seem inappropriate. Sensing the hesitation, Judy raised her glass and announced, “To LIFE!” And that, my friend, is exactly what your party should be all about. DEAR ABBY: I’m a sixth-grade girl with a group of friends I like. The problem is some of them constantly put themselves down. It’s annoying to hear, “My hair is so messed up,” “I failed that quiz” (they got a B), “My paper is so

McLean, president: Oscar Barringer, vice president, Jerome Raterman, secretary, and L.J. McFarland, treasurer. ————— The 1937 Health Seal sale, which to date reaches the sum of $1500 is the best record and Shelby Sidney county have ever made in the annual sale of the little seals from which a sum is created to carry on health work in this community.

25 years Feb. 9, 1988 MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Lisa Marie Presley, the 20 year old daughter of Elvis Presley, says that while she feels her late father’s place in musical history is secure her primary goal is to keep his image alive and respected. Miss Presley said that 18 months ago, she began attending meetings of the group that manages the Presley trust she will inherit when she turns 25. She says she wants the image of the king of rock ’n’ roll to endure the way he was remembered by those close to him. ————— How do you honor a man who brought life and water to a patch of Sonoran Desert land in southern Arizona?

parently wasn’t helped by walking? — S.T. ANSWER: Walking is a great exercise, and I think you have done a great job. However, for your bones, a little higher impact may be what’s needed to strengthen them up. Dancing, jumping rope and climbing stairs are all ways to get a bit more bone stress in your workout. Bones respond to stress by strengthening, which is why bed rest is so deadly, and astronauts can suffer serious bone loss. Lifting weights is another great way to strengthen muscles and bones. Although there are medications to improve bone density, doing these exercises has so many more benefits, and many or most women 50 years can avoid medicines by Feb, 9, 1963 doing what you are doing The new bulk-blend with vitamin D, calcium fertilizer plant of the and exercise.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

Jackets rally, win 56-55 Trailed by 12 after third quarter TROY — After leading at the half, the Sidney Yellow Jackets came out and played what head coach Greg Snyder termed “about as bad a quarter as you can have.” That resulted in a 12-point fourth-quarter deficit. But that just made the comeback victory all the more sweet as the Jackets rallied behind senior Tyree Manley to pull out a 56-55 win. It gave Sidney a sweep of the Trojans this season after beating them in overtime earlier in the SHS gym. Friday’s win was the first since that night. The Jackets are now 3-17 on the year and will return to action Tuesday at home against a good Urbana squad. “We were struggling a lot of the game,” Manley said. “But we got some big defensive stops by Darrel McNeal and Conner Echols. They really set the tone toward the end.” The Jackets played a good first half and took a 27-25 lead into the locker room at intermission, but the third quarter was disastrous. The Jackets managed just four field goals and were outscored 22-8 in the period to leave them looking at a 47-35 deficit heading into the final period. “We did enough good things offensively in the first half to get the lead,” said Snyder. “But we had about as bad a third quarter as you can have. We got behind and started forcing things, and that includes Tyree. But James Daniel did a great job of getting to the hole and Connor Echols hit a couple big shotsto

The Jackets rallied to pull out a 56-55 thriller over the Trojans. keep us in the game.” Manley then took over down the stretch, hitting a couple of three-pointers and some clutch free throws. Manley got a steal and a layup at the other end to tie the game up at 51-51, but the Jackets had to survive a questionable call at the other end. “Troy got behind us after we tied it up, and then got a bucket. And we were called for an intentional foul,” said Snyder. Both free throws were missed, but after the Jackets came up empty, the Trojans sank two free throws to up the lead back to four.

But Manley drained a three, and after the Jackets got the ball back, Troy tried to trap Manley, but fouled him instead. He calmly sank both free throws with :15 left and the Jackets held on for the win.” “Boys, am I proud of him, especially considering everything he’s gone through,” said Snyder of Manley, whose mother recently passed away. “I was proud of all the kids the way they overcame that third quarter.” Daniel wound up leading the Jackets in scoring with 16, but Manley really came through when his team

needed him the most. He had 15 points, and 11 of those came in the final period. Connor Echols added 10 points.

FORT LORAMIE — The Jackson Center Tigers, having already wrapped up an outright County boys basketball title, set about to avenge their only loss in conference play this season. And they did just that Friday night, beating the Fort Loramie Redskins at Loramie, 43-36. The Tigers up their league mark to 10-1 and their overall record to 18-2 heading into a non-league test tonight at Lima Temple Christian. Fort Loramie drops its third game in a row and falls to 5-5 in the County and 8-11 overall. Tonight, the Redskins will trek to Dayton Jefferson. Fort Loramie led by four on two occasions in the second half, but struggled to score points in the final period, enabling the Tigers to come from behind and win going away. Jackson Center held a 16-0 advantage at the free throw line. While the Tigers were canning 16-for-21, Loramie was missing all six of its free throw attempts. Jackson led 6-4 after a quarter but fell behind in the second until getting a lift off the bench from Joey Frye, who had six points in the period. Jackson led by one at the half but it was deadlocked at 28 heading to the final period. And the points were hard to come by. “We got stuck on 28 for a while,” said Loramie coach Karl Ratermann. “They executed down the stretch. (Alex) Meyer made some really nice plays for them and they guard the heck out of it. “They hit a three and a two and went up five in the fourth
