BY CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican senator’s embrace of gay marriage is the latest sign of soul-searching in a party struggling to adapt in a society whose demographics — and views on emotional issues — are changing fast. Gay marriage still divides the party, with the conservative wing strongly opposed. But an increasing number of

Republicans, now including Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, are reversing course. Many others simply downplay the subject. With the issue of immigration also shifting rapidly under Republicans’ feet, they seem increasingly focused — and united — on one overarching goal: keeping income taxes from rising. Their solidarity on that issue is hindering President Barack Obama’s efforts to make higher tax revenue part of a compromise approach to

deficit spending and expensive social programs. These trends raise the possibility that the GOP — reeling after losing the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections — will lessen its identity with hotbutton social issues and sharpen its emphasis on tax and spending matters. Portman announced Friday that he now supports gay marriage, linking his stand to learning that one of his sons is gay.

A former U.S. trade representative and White House budget chief, Portman is seen as one of the party’s most knowledgeable and effective leaders. Mitt Romney considered him to be his running mate last year. Portman says he told Romney of his son Will’s sexuality but does not believe it affected Romney’s decision. As a U.S. House member in 1996, Portman supported the Defense of Marriage Act, or See PORTMAN/Page 4A

Enrollment down at Edison BY WILL E SANDERS Civitas Media PIQUA — Edison Community College, like similar colleges throughout the state and region, is experiencing a decline in enrollment, but the institution remains in the top one-third of colleges in the state of Ohio in terms of budget performance. Edison President Cristobal Valdez said he recognizes that community college enrollment is down throughout the state of Ohio, but he reinforced how committed Edison is toward balancing the budget without cuts to people, services and programs. “We are pleased that through diligent staff work, thoughtful planning and

strong fiscal stewardship we were able to balance our budget without harm to people, positions or programs and maintain the long-term viability of the college,” Valdez said. “We are committed to ensuring the citizens in the tricounty area access to higher education.” Valdez also noted that while Edison “has experienced lower-than-expected enrollments” over the last few semesters, he said community colleges throughout the region are experiencing similar declines. Despite this, Scott Burnam, dean of enrollment services and registrar at the college, said Edison remains in the top one-third of community colleges in Ohio in terms of See EDISON/Page 3A

Buchy, Adams talk priorities


Police log

BY RACHEL LLOYD State Reps. Jim Buchy and John Adams, of the 84th and 85th Districts, respectively, were the featured guests at the Shelby County Liberty Group’s town hall meeting Thursday evening, where jobs, health care, education, abortion and energy were the hot topics of conversation. The two opened with comments about jobs in the state and the challenges of the budget currently under negotiation in the Statehouse. Buchy noted that agriculture, along with a strong work ethic and family values, have been major contributing factors to the relatively low unemployment rates the more rural areas of West Central Ohio have enjoyed. Buchy also named himself a “strong supporter of hydraulic fracturing” — known as “fracking” — adding that Ohio has “an unbelievable source of fossil fuel, which by the way, is the real source of energy we should be producing.” He said more than $4 billion has been invested in capital equipment and thousands of jobs have been created since the discovery of natural gas in Appalachia, in an area that’s historically the poorest part of the state and where it is most needed. “Many, many millionaires are being created because of the abundance of oil and natural gas found in that area,” he said. Buchy said the people opposed to fracking “are the same people who are anti-free enterprise.” The legislator also stressed his “mission to help in education in the cities,” by illustrating the problems he saw on a visit to Cleveland schools. He spoke of a pilot program to bring voyage (vocational-agricultural) training, specifically for food science, to the city schools in Cleveland and Cincinnati to help boost graduation rates and expand student experience for future employment options. Buchy, who is in his 11th nonconsecutive term in the Ohio House of Representatives, said the current budget “is bar far the most challenging budget that I have seen,” citing educa-

Scholarships, grants offered Blood Community Center (CBC) and Vectren Corp. are joining forces to award $10,000 in scholarships and education grants to area seniors and high schools for leadership in the shared mission of saving lives. The emphasis is on ingenuity in the newly revised CBC/Vectren Lead the Way Creative Scholarship Program. Vectren will again provide $1,000 in tuition assistance to five collegebound seniors who design the most creative blood drive recruitment campaigns. CBC is introducing the High School Leadership Grant Program to reward excellence among the more than 100 high schools in the CBC region who host multiple campus blood drives. Eligible schools will compete for $1,000 grants in five award categories. programs “These demonstrate how much we value our partnerships with the high schools,” said CBC Donor Relations Director Andrew Keelor. “When principals, teachers and parents are willing to spare academic time so students can donate, we know it is for a lesson about community that goes beyond the classroom.” Lead the Way is a $5,000 creative scholarship program to support young adults who will be blood resource leaders of tomorrow.

Burnam said college officials realized in the fall that an approximate shortfall of $480,000 was anticipated since enrollment numbers that the school’s budget is “built on” began to decline. “We saw it coming and we did everything we could to mitigate that,” Burnam said, who gave several examples, from pushing spring enrollment to making necessary adjustments that did not have an impact on personnel and services. Enrollment during last year’s fall semester was down 9 percent, and presently that figure will increase to 12 percent for the spring semester. “We knew in the fall that enrollment would be down,” Burnam said.

From Page 1 “We then knew to make some adjustments and changes, some of those are natural, built-in adjustments, but it helped stave off that $480,000 (deficit).” One of the key factors for enrollment figures at community colleges like Edison is the current economy, Burnam said, and how students — ranging from new students to those who once took classes but never obtained a degree — perceive the economic climate and the need for such education. “We relied on the economy to help bring us those students and now we are going to work harder to bring them to us,” he said. “We have the capacity to provide deeper service. We have the capacity to handle a growth spurt.”

From Page 1 time. Kimpel had been suspended pending the outcome of criminal charges filed against him in both Shelby and Auglaize counties. Kimpel is currently serving two years probation in Shelby County for unauthorized use of a (law enforcement) computer or communications device. A sexual assault charge in Auglaize County was dismissed. The AG’s office is seeking a total judgment in the amount of $60,424.87. On Feb. 13, Kimpel’s attorney, Michael Rumer of Lima, filed a counterclaim against the County Commissioners, asking the lawsuit be dropped and seeking other relief as deemed appropriate by the court.

TRENT MAYS (left), 17,and codefendant 16-yearold Ma'lik Richmond sit in court before the start of the third day of their trial on rape charges in juvenile court on Friday in Steubenville. Mays and Richmond are accused of raping a 16-year-old West Virginia girl in August of 2012.

Teen witnesses testify in rape trial BY ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press STEUBENVILLE (AP) — A judge granted two teenagers immunity from prosecution Friday before they agreed to testify about the alleged sexual assault of a drunken 16year-old girl after a party in eastern Ohio last summer. Both Mark Cole and Evan Westlake invoked their Fifth Amendment right against testifying for fear of self-incrimination as the trial in Steubenville entered its third day. Testimony from Cole, Westlake and a third boy are a crucial part of the state’s evidence because the West Virginia girl says she doesn’t remember what happened. Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’Lik Richmond, 16, are charged with digitally penetrating the girl early in the morning of Aug. 12, first in a car and then in the base-

ment of a house. Mays also is charged with illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. The two maintain their innocence. Cole testified Friday that he took a video of Mays and the girl in the car, then deleted it. Westlake testified he saw Richmond’s encounter with the girl in the basement. The third boy, who has yet to testify, said at a hearing last fall that he took a photo of the alleged basement attack that he also deleted. The case has riveted the small city of Steubenville amid allegations that more students should have been charged and led to questions about the influence of the local football team, a source of a pride in a community that suffered massive job losses with the collapse of the steel industry. If convicted, Mays and Richmond could be held in a juvenile jail until they turn 21.

DOMA. It defines marriage as between a man and a woman and bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage. Portman’s reversal makes him the only Senate Republican to openly back gay marriage. “I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married,” Portman wrote in an op-ed article in The Columbus Dispatch. He said he had talked to his pastor and others, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who opposes gay marriage, and to former Vice President Dick Cheney, who supports it. Cheney, whose younger daughter is a lesbian, became arguably the bestknown Republican to embrace gay marriage with his announcement in June 2009. Portman said his previous views on marriage were rooted in his Methodist faith. However, he wrote, “Ultimately, for me, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God.” Despite his party’s struggles with Americans’ increasing acceptance of gay rights, many GOP leaders met Portman’s news with silence or a shrug. A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, who shares Portman’s Cincinnati background, said the senator “is a great friend and ally, and the speaker

Portman is now supporting gay marriage and says his reversal on the issue began when he learned his son Will is gay. respects his position, but the speaker continues to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.” In January, Boehner chastised the Obama administration for dropping its legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act, which the Supreme Court is to consider this month. Boehner authorized the continued use of public funds to defend the law in courts. Boehner’s latest comments reflect the change among many mainstream Republicans, who now deal with gay marriage in largely unlegalistic emotional, terms rather than emotional terms about sin and God’s will. Congress now has several openly gay members, including a senator, Wisconsin Democrat Tammy Baldwin. At the U.S. House, which was in session Fri-

day, several conservatives had little or nothing to say about Portman’s announcement. Gay marriage “is not the most front-burner issue,” said Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla. “We still have the same legal issues we’ve always had with the Defense of Marriage Act,” which he supports, he said. Citing Obama’s position, he said, “It’s more a separation of powers issue than it is anything else.” Lankford said other Republicans have supported same-sex marriage, so “this is not anything new.” In another legal matter — California’s ban on same-sex marriage — all 21 state attorneys general who have signed legal briefs or letters urging the Supreme Court to uphold the law are Republican. White House spokesman Josh Earnest

said Friday: “What is clear is that we are witnessing a pretty significant sociological shift in this country.” “It’s happening right before our eyes in a way that says a lot about our country, that we have a country where we prioritize equality and fairness,” he said. Obama said last year he personally supports gay marriage, a step some liberals called overdue. Polls show that public opinions on gay rights, including same-sex marriage, have shifted perhaps more rapidly than on any other major issue in recent times. In Gallup polling last November, 53 percent of adult Americans said marriages same-sex should be granted the same status as traditional marriages, while 46 percent felt they should not be valid.

Rocky’s house for sale PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Want to live like Rocky Balboa? The Italian Stallion’s house is on the market. The home in South Philadelphia was featured in the 1979 movie “Rocky II.” In the sequel to the Oscar-winning smash, the fictional boxer played by Sylvester Stallone buys the house after he loses a bout to Apollo Creed but gains renown for his toughness. The 1,036-square-foot row house has three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Asking price: $139,000. Real estate agent Joe Bianco says the home is for sale because the woman who lived there since the time of filming recently died. He says the house was picked for “Rocky II” because the filmmakers “happened to like the front of the home and knocked on the door.”

Vatican criticizes campaign BY NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press VATICAN CITY (AP) — The honeymoon that Pope Francis has enjoyed since his remarkable election hit a bump Friday, with the Vatican lashing out at what it called a defamatory and “anti-clerical left-wing” media campaign questioning his actions during Argentina’s murderous military dictatorship. On Day 2 of the Francis pontificate, the Vatican denounced news reports in Argentina and beyond resurrecting allegations that the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio failed to openly confront the junta responsible for kidnapping and killing thousands of people in a “dirty war” to eliminate leftist opponents. Bergoglio, like most Argentines, didn’t publicly confront the dictators who ruled from 1976-83, while he was the leader of the country’s Jesuits. And human rights activists differ on how much blame he personally deserves. Top church leaders had endorsed the junta and some priests even worked alongside torturers inside secret prisons.

AP Photo/L'Osservatore Romano

IN THIS photo made available by the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis is greeted by Cardinal Angelo Sodano as he meets the cardinals at the Vatican Friday for the first time after his election. Nobody has produced any evidence suggesting Bergoglio had anything to do with such crimes. But many activists are angry that as archbishop of Buenos Aires for more than a decade, he didn’t do more to support investigations into the atrocities. On Thursday, the old ghosts resurfaced. A group of 44 former military and police officers on trial for torture, rape and murder in a concentration

camp in Cordoba province in the 1970s wore the yellowand-white ribbons of the papal flag in Francis’ honor. Many Argentine newspapers ran the photo Friday. The Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi noted that Argentine courts had never accused Bergoglio of any crime, that he had denied all accusations against him and that on the contrary “there have been many decla-

North Dakota passes two anti-abortion bills BY JAMES MACPHERSON Associated Press BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota on Friday moved closer to adopting what would be the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, with lawmakers sending the Republican governor measures that could set the state up for a costly legal battle over the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized the procedure. The North Dakota Senate overwhelmingly approved two anti-abortion bills Friday, one banning abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy and another prohibiting women from having the procedure because a fetus has a genetic defect, such as Down syndrome. North Dakota would be the first state in the U.S. to adopt such laws. Supporters said their goal is to challenge the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion up until a fetus is considered viable, usually at 22 to 24 weeks, though anti-abortion activists elsewhere have expressed concern about the strategy. “It’s a good day for babies,” said Rep. Bette Grande, a Re-

publican from Fargo who introduced both bills. The state’s only abortion clinic is in Fargo, and abortion-rights advocates say the measures are meant to shut it down. Gov. Jack Dalrymple hasn’t said anything to indicate he would veto the measures, and the bills have enough support in each chamber for the Legislature to override him. Debate Friday was brief, with the Senate taking about an hour to pass both measures. No one spoke against the so-called fetal heartbeat bill, which the Senate took up immediately after passing the genetic abnormalities bill. The votes were largely on party lines, with Republicans supporting the measures and Democrats opposing them. Opponents, who have promised legal challenges to both measures if they become law, urged Dalrymple to veto the bills. North Dakota is one of several states with Republican-controlled Legislatures and GOP governors that is looking at abortion restrictions. But the state is better positioned than most for a long court fight: It has budget surplus nearing $2 billion thanks to new-found oil wealth. The American Civil Liber-

ties Union called the measures “extreme,” saying they would make North Dakota “the first state in the nation to ban most abortions.” “In America, no woman, no matter where she lives, should be denied the ability to make this deeply personal decision,” ACLU executive director Anthony Romero said in a statement. Arkansas passed a 12-week ban earlier this month that prohibits most abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected using an abdominal ultrasound. That ban is scheduled to take effect 90 days after the Arkansas Legislature adjourns. A fetal heartbeat can generally be detected earlier in a pregnancy using a vaginal ultrasound, but Arkansas lawmakers balked at requiring women seeking abortions to have the more invasive imaging technique. North Dakota’s measure doesn’t specify how a fetal heartbeat would be detected. Doctors performing an abortion after a heartbeat is detected could face a felony charge punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Women having an abortion would not face charges.

Christians say they were tortured CAIRO (AP) — Dozens of Coptic Christians were tortured inside a detention center run by a powerful militia in eastern Libya, two of the recently released detainees told The Associated Press on Friday amid a wave of assaults targeting Christians in Benghazi and the latest instance of alleged abuse by Libyan security forces. The two, among an estimated 50 Egyptian Christians who have been detained in Libya on suspicion of proselytizing, told of being rounded up in a market by gunmen who checked their right wrists for tattoos of crosses. “They first checked our wrists searching for the crosses and if they found them, we (had to) get into their cars,” said 26-year-old Amgad Zaki from the southern city of Samalout in Minya province, 220 kilometers (135 miles) south of Cairo. Zaki said a group of men — some in uniform and some in civilian clothes — rounded up Egyptians selling clothes in a market called el-Jareed in Benghazi on Feb. 26. He and other Christians climbed into SUVs that he said carried the

sign of Libya Shield One, one of the most powerful militias in Benghazi that is under the command of Islamist and exrebel Wassam Bin Hemad. “They shaved our heads. They threatened to sever our heads in implementation of Islamic Shariah (law) while showing us swords,” said Zaki, who was interviewed on the telephone from his home after returning to Egypt earlier this month. “They dealt with us in a very brutal way, including forcing us to insult our Pope Shenouda,” Zaki said, referring to the former Coptic pontiff who died last year. He said that during four days of detention they were flogged, forced to take off their clothes in cold weather and stand at 3 a.m. outdoors on floor covered with stones. “I was taken to clean a bathroom, and the man pushed my head inside the toilet and sat on me,” he said. “I was dying every day, and at one point I thought death is better than this.” Militias have been targeting Christians, women, journalists, refugees and those considered former loyalists of

Moammar Gadhafi, who was toppled and killed in Libya’s 2011 civil war. The state relies on the militias to serve as security forces since Libya’s police and military remain in shambles. Egypt’s foreign ministry said that its embassy in Libya was investigating the allegations of torture. The militia that held the group claimed it treated the Coptic Christian detainees well. However, Atef Habib, 34year-old vendor who is also from Minya province, also alleged mistreatment in the detention center. He recalled how a Coptic Christian priest was beaten up and his head and mustache were shaved by the captors. Habib said that an aide to the priest also was beaten. “His face was blackened and bleeding from beating,” Habib said. Fathi Ubaidi, one of the top commanders of Libya Shield, denied abusing the Coptic Christians. He said in a phone interview that the Egyptians were treated “very well” and “if there is any rights organization who would like to talk to them, they are more than welcome.”

rations demonstrating how much Bergoglio did to protect many persons at the time.” He said the accusations against the new pope were made long ago “by anti-clerical left-wing elements to attack the church. They must be firmly rejected.” The harsh denunciation was typical of a Vatican that often reacts defensively when it feels under attack, even though its response served to give the story legs for another day. It interrupted the generally positive reception Francis has enjoyed since his election as pope on Wednesday, when even his choice of footwear — his old black shoes rather than the typical papal red — was noted as a sign of his simplicity and humility. There was one clearly unscripted moment Friday, when the 76-year-old Francis stumbled briefly during an audience with the cardinals, but he quickly recovered. And for the second day in a row, Francis slipped out of the Vatican walls, this time to visit an ailing Argentine cardinal, Jorge Mejia, who suffered a heart attack Wednesday and was in the hospital.

U.S. to beef up missile defense against N. Korea BY ROBERT BURNS Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon announced Friday it will spend $1 billion to add 14 interceptors to an Alaska-based missile defense system, responding to what it faster-thancalled anticipated North Korean progress on nuclear weapons and missiles. In announcing the decision, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said he is determined to protect the U.S. homeland and stay ahead of a worrisome North Korean missile threat. He acknowledged that the interceptors already in place to defend against potential North Korean missile strikes have had poor test performances. “We will strengthen our homeland defense, maintain our commitments to our allies and partners, and make clear to the world that the United States stands firm against aggression,” Hagel told a Pentagon news conference. He said the 14 additional interceptors will be installed at Fort Greely, Alaska, where 26 already stand in underground silos, connected to communications systems and operated by soldiers at Greely and at Colorado Springs, Colo. The interceptors are designed to lift out of their silos, soar beyond the atmosphere and deploy a “kill vehicle” that can lock onto a targeted warhead and, by ramming into it at high speed, obliterate it. Hagel also cited a previously announced Pentagon plan to place an additional radar in Japan to provide early warning of a North Korean missile launch and to assist in tracking its flight path. A portion of the $1 billion cost of the expanded system at Fort Greely will come from scrapping the final phase of a missile defense system the U.S. is building in Europe, Hagel said. The system in Europe is aimed mainly at defending against a missile threat from Iran; key elements of that system are already in place. Tom Collina, research director at the Arms Control Association, applauded the decision to scrap the final phase of the European system, calling it an addition that “may not work against a threat that does not yet exist.”

WIN members learn to make Easter baskets Women In Networking held their March meeting at the Shelby County Ag Building and watched Paula Arnett as she made an easy-toassemble Easter candy basket. Arnett told members to use an all-temperature glue gun when gluing candy to sticks, so as not to melt the candy. The sticks can be inserted into a styrofoam base in the bottom of the basket. All the ingredients she was using had been obtained from the Dollar Tree store or Wal-

mart, so this was an inexpensive project for everyone. Jessica Vaglienti from the Community Foundation won the completed basket. Brenda Cavinder from US Bank received the monthly Chamber of Commerce gift certificate. President Karen Berning announced that the April meeting will be at the Hampton Inn and Janet Jackson will be talking about organizing. Past President Beth Bailey noted that the June meeting will fea-

several ways. “It was great to actually be in the classroom working with students so early (as a senior) in the process,” she said. Hart adds that the experience gave her more confidence and determination in college, because she was so certain of the goal. This fall Hart welcomed Ashley Hagon, a Troy High School senior and Upper Valley Career Center Teacher Academy student, into her classroom. By the end of December Hagon seemed at ease interacting with the students and had a solid plan for the future. “I want to go to Edison for my general classes then transfer to Wright State. I know I like working with the younger students, so I’m considering teaching middle school,” said Hagon. When Hagon gradu-

ates this May, she will have earned three semester-hours transferable to any public post-secondary Ohio institution. Kleinhenz is very excited about what her students accomplish. “There is real monetary value, but most importantly they acquire a real-world understanding of education as a career field,” she said. She describes Teacher Academy graduates as mature young adults who know what they want to achieve. “It’s a very unique experience that “flips” the senior year from a student role to the teacher perspective,” Kleinhenz said. Information packets for the Teacher Academy are available from high school counselors or the Career Center. Kleinhenz may be reached at

CEAO asks the state to study alternative sources of funds such as a vehicle-miles traveled tax study (VMT). Pausch noted that Missouri, Oregon, Virginia, Maryland, Michigan and Texas are coming up with new ways to fund infrastructure needs into the future. “Why is Ohio falling behind in evaluating new efforts on transportation funding?” he asked. “Our state should be doing better and we can no longer wait for the federal government to come to the rescue.” Other issues the CEAO asked the subcommittee to address include: • Distribution to local governments’ revenues from the recent CAT tax case. • Borrowing/bonding against the Ohio Turnpike. • Changing language in ORC 5577.99 overweight fines.

functionally obsolete. “Recent surveys have concluded that $770 million is needed for critical repairs to more than 6,000 Ohio county bridges with deficient ratings,” said Pausch. “Currently, Ohio’s 29,088 plus miles of county roads require more than $230 million annually in resurfacing costs alone. However, the federal gas tax hasn’t been increased since 1993, and Ohio’s state gas tax has not been increased since 2003.” Since 2003, the cost for hotmix asphalt alone has risen from $27 per ton to $74 per ton, a 270 percent increase. Also, county engineers have been hit with a 214 percent increase in reinforcing steel costs and a 70 percent increase in redimix concrete, according to Pausch. As more and more fuel-efficient cars travel Ohio’s roads, their owners are paying less in per/gallon gas taxes.

In testimony before the subcommittee on Feb. 15, County Engineers Association of Ohio (CEAO) Executive Director Fredrick B. Pausch said, “This committee has numerous ways to funnel money to the local roads that county engineers attempt to maintain, which won’t raise taxes and insures more money going directly to county roads and bridge improvements.” Pausch cited a 2008 report from the Federal Highway Administration that stated that Ohio ranks fifth in the nation in the number of local bridges classified as structurally deficient or

PIQUA — Rebecca Kleinhenz and her Teacher Academy (TA) Ambassadors from Upper Valley Career Center are headed to high schools in Miami and Shelby Counties to let juniors know about the unique opportunity to those interested in pursuing a career in education. “Many high school students already know they are interested in a teaching career,” said Kleinhenz. Upper Valley Career Center’s Teacher Academy is a senior-only program that allows qualifying students the opportunity to observe and work with mentor instructors in their classrooms. Kleinhenz explains the way it works. “Our TA students typically attend their high school for academics, and spend afternoons or mornings either at the Career Center or observing in a local classroom. Teacher Academy students visit elementary, middle and high school classes observing, presenting, and working with their mentor instructor,” she said. Jessica Hart, a sixthgrade Language Arts teacher at Van Cleve in Troy, began her career with the Upper Valley Career Center Teacher Academy in 2004.

Ohio Century Farm: Family endures on same farm for 100 years BY ELAINE SCHWELLERSNYDER The Ohio Department of Agriculture developed the Ohio Century Farm program to honor the state’s founding farm families and the social, economic and historic contributions that are their enduring legacy. One Shelby County farm that was honored as a Century Farm in 2012 was that of the Puthoff family in McLean Township, 6399 Fort Loramie-Swanders Road, Minster. The family purchased the present farm in 1857, but the history of the Puthoff Family Farm actually can be traced back to Johann Bernhard Puthoff and his wife, Catherine (Boergerding) Puthoff, in the year 1789 near Oterfina, Germany. It was their son, J. Bernard KleinePuthoff, who immigrated to the United States in 1833 and became the first owner of the farm that would stay connected to the Puthoff family for more than 155 years.

Upon Bernard’s death in 1975, the farm was purchased by their son, Donald T. Puthoff, and his wife, Phylis M. (Siefel) Puthoff. Their children — Jeannie Lynn (Snarr), Jennifer Louise (Ernst), John Bernard, Jacqueline Luella (Roberts), Joan Marie (Meyer) and James Donald — grew up on the farm. Throughout its long history, the Puthoff Fam-

ily Farm has raised crops and livestock, including corn, wheat, soybeans, oats, hay, chickens, cattle and hogs. The family has endured a number of setbacks, including the Great Depression and a 1948 tornado that damaged the farmhouse. Repairs were made, but the house was then destroyed by a second tornado in 1965. “I remember those terrible days from my boyhood on the farm,” said Donald. “What great parents we had that survived those things. The older I get, the more I miss them and their resolve in the face of hardship.” In 2005, Donald and Phylis retired and transferred ownership to their son, John B. Puthoff, and his wife, Teresa J. (Schulze) Puthoff. But Donald and Phylis continue to live on the farm and plan to do so, in Donald’s words, “forever.” Donald and his son raise beef calves and cattle, and grow corn, beans and wheat. John and Teresa live on neighboring farmland, but their children and other grandchildren of Donald and Phylis have all lived from time to time on the family farm.

Wis. Gouda named U.S. Championship Cheese GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin Gouda won top honors Wednesday night at the 2013 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest, edging out entries from Vermont and Illinois. Marieke Penterman, of Holland’s Family Cheese in Thorp, Wis., won the two-day competition in Green Bay with her Marieke Mature Gouda. Out of a possible 100 points, Marieke Gouda scored 98.31 in the final round of judging. First runner-up, with a score of 97.89, was Tarentaise, a semi-hard alpine cheese made by Spring Brook Farm/Farms For City Kids Foundation in Reading, Vt. Second runner-up was Medium Cheddar, made by Team Cracker Barrel Natural Cheese, Agropur Weyauwega for Kraft Foods (NYSE:KFT) in Glenview, Ill., which scored 97.88. Judges re-evaluated the top 16 cheeses at an evening gala to determine the overall winner. “Every medalist should be extremely proud of being recognized as the best of the best in the largest national cheese competition ever held,” said John Umhoefer, executive director of the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association, which hosts the biennial competition. More than 1,700 cheeses were entered, including pepper-flavored, smoked and sheep cheeses. This year, more than 30,000 pounds of cheese were entered in the contest. Wisconsin captured the most gold

they must come to a QA session. Testing out is good for three years. Youth who 12 and older and are first-time livestock exhibitors, must attend a QA session along with at least one parent or legal guardian this year and then can try to test out next year. The program consists of a review of the 10 good production practices, emphasizing three of the practices each year. In addition, the program addresses issues of ethics and animal welfare and food safety and government regulations. This year’s program will present an in-depth look at the following good production practices: • GPP 1 — Identify and track all treated animals. • GPP 7 — Establish an efficient and effective herd health management plan. • GPP 8 — Provide proper animal handling and care. In addition to the presentation, youth will have the opportunity to participate in activities and discussion to reinforce their learning. Youth wanting to test out of the program must be at least 12 years of age as of Jan. 1 of this year. Two different tests are given based on age

(12-14 years and 15-18 years) and animal (small animal and large animal). Youth may attend any of the following locations for testing out. Location, dates, and times for test outs are: • Jackson Center High School: March 26 and 27, 7:15 a.m. and 2:30-4 p.m. • Anna High School: April 3 and 4, 7:30 a.m. and 3:15-4 p.m. • Botkins High School: April 3, 2:30 to 4 p.m. • Houston High School: April 7, 7 p.m. • Fort Loramie High School: April 8, 3:15-4 p.m. and April 11, 7:308:10 a.m. • Fairlawn High School: April 9 and 10, 3:15-4:30 p.m. Quality Assurance is one part of the Shelby County Junior Fair Projects to Products Program, in which youth livestock exhibitors learn to produce blue ribbon projects in the show ring and highquality, safe, wholesome products for the consumer. For more information about Quality Assurance, 4-H or the Shelby County Junior Fair, contact Laura Norris, Extension educator, 4-H Youth Development, at 498-7239.

Farm Credit Mid-America salutes agriculture VERSAILLES — To recognize the place agriculture holds in communities across the country, the Agriculture Council of America will host National Ag Month the month of March and National Ag Day on Tuesday. The theme for Ag Day 2013 is “Generations Nourishing Generations.” Farm Credit MidAmerica, an agricultural lending cooperative serving farmers, rural residents and agribusinesses throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, is joining the celebration of America’s farmers, who work hard to provide a healthy, safe and bountiful food supply. From backyard gardeners to managers of large-scale operations, Farm Credit supports and salutes all diverse farmers and agriculturalists. “Agriculture is not one size fits all,” said Kevin Cox, board chair with Farm Credit Mid-America. “The industry is broad in breadth and scope, including not only those who work to produce food, fiber and fuel, but also those committed

The 2013 Shelby County Youth Quality Assurance Program has been scheduled for April 21, May 6, and May 7 at the Blue Building on the Shelby County Fairgrounds. The April 21 program will run from 2 to 4 p.m. and the May 6-7 program will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All 4-H or FFA members who plan to enter and exhibit (breeding and market) livestock, including beef, sheep, swine, goats, rabbits, poultry, and dairy at the 2013 Shelby County Junior Fair must attend a Shelby County Quality Assurance (QA) program or successfully “test out” of the program. Ohio law requires that all youth involved in raising and showing food animal projects at fairs throughout the state participate annually in a quality assurance program. Junior exhibitors (youth ages 8, 9, 10 or 11 as of Jan. 1 of the program year) must attend a QA program each year along with at least one parent or legal guardian. Youth 12 and older are eligible to test out of the program by scoring a minimum of 70 percent on a written test. However, if a youth member fails the test,

Faced with the challenge of sustainability and responsibly producing enough food to support a growing population, every size and type of farming operation and agricultural career has a crucial part in advancing the industry to its full potential.” Throughout Farm

If the farm is a corporation, all members of the corporation must also be family members. “Although the courts and legal system force us to use the word ‘owner,’ you can see by our history that it takes a lot of families to create a ‘family farm,’ ” said Donald. “The owner is really just the one who has the privilege of being the keeper, guardian and steward of the land for the next generation.” Given the history of the Puthoff clan, it appears that this land will Photo provided stay in the family for many generations to TAKEN IN 1965, this photo shows a building on the Puthoff farm destroyed by a tornado.

Weiner suggests that you be specific and say, “You look great in that color,” rather than “You look great.” Also, don’t exaggerate compliments. Just be honest and direct without gushing and expecting a response. You don’t want to force someone to say, “I know I’m great,” just to shut you up. Learning to receive and give compliments gracefully will leave you feeling happy inside and can be the first step toward new friendships. “After all, Dr. Bell concludes, “People appreciate compliments, and get closer when they share their good feelings.” And we all know compliments are more fun than criticism, so learn to offer (and receive) sincere

Plant oils such as soybean, cottonseed and sunflower and products made from them are the richest sources of Vitamin E. Nuts, wheat germ and green, leafy vegetables are other good sources. Vitamin C (found abundantly in citrus fruits, tomatoes, cantaloupe, broccoli, berries, cabbage and asparagus) promotes healthy skin, as well. You should also drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and get proper rest.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Relations with females in group situations will be a positive experience today. Accept invitations. Talk to others and explore ideas. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might meet someone who seems to know more about you than you thought possible. Play it cool. It could be that someone is talking about you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Shake up your routine today by doing something different. Take an alternate route to or from work. Do some-

thing unusual for lunch. Talk to people you might normally avoid. You need a change! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good day to tie up loose details with insurance matters, taxes, debt, inheritances and anything that has to do with shared property. Just roll up your sleeves and begin. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Discussions with others will be quite intense, which is why you might feel they are making demands on you. And perhaps they are. But it’s in your best interests to cooperate.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Give yourself a chance to play today. Enjoy flirtations or a long lunch or just a stroll through any area that interests you. Sports events might appeal. Take a break. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Home, family and domestic matters comprise your primary focus

today. Conversations with a parent could be significant. Cocoon at home, if you can. YOU BORN TODAY You’re intuitive and imaginative. Many of you have strong psychic abilities. (You also have great patience.) Dreams can be a powerful factor in your life. You’re very aware of the cycles in life and what can be learned from them.

Heritage Action for America recently announced that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, along with 28 other members of Congress — six senators and 23 representatives — achieved Sentinel status in the 112th Congress by scoring a 90 percent or higher on the organization’s comprehensive legislative scorecard. Jordan scored 95 percent. “Americans worried about our country’s future should sleep better at night knowing a dedicated group of lawmakers are fighting for freedom every day in Washington,” CEO Michael A. Needham said. “We congratulate these Sentinels who stood guard, vigilantly protecting our freedoms during the 112th Congress. Not only did they advance the conservative cause, but they also held back the incessant tide of tax increases, out-ofcontrol spending, and harmful policies that breed dependency on government. In Washington,


Persky ends basic ANNA — Army Pvt. Zachery K. Persky has graduated from Basic Combat Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Waynesville, Mo. During the nine weeks of training, the soldier received instruction in drill and ceremony, weapons, rifle marksmanship qualification, bayonet combat, chemical warfare, field training and tactical exercises, marches, military courtesy, military justice, physical fitness, first aid, and Army history, traditions and core values. Persky is the son of Joe Persky, of Anna, and is a 2012 graduate of Anna High School.

this is no easy task, which makes these Members all the more commendable.” When Heritage Action unveiled its legislative scorecard in August of 2011, we described it as “a comprehensive and revealing barometer of a lawmaker’s willingness to fight for conservative policies in Congress.” It has been just that — “a hugely influential cheat sheet for determining conservative bona fides in Congress.” This “scorecard for conservatives” reveals which lawmakers talk like a conservative and which ones act like a conservative. “Our country requires bold leadership and principled action,” Needham said. “These Sentinels represent the tip of the spear in Washington, but they are not alone. All across the country citizen Sentinels are acting as America’s firewall for freedom.”

Much like their elected counterparts, these citizens are committed conservatives dedicated to bringing about progrowth reforms that enhance opportunity. By making timely contact with elected officials and their fellow constituents, Heritage Action’s citizen Sentinels are doing the hard work of keeping Congress accountable. “With each vote cast, freedom either advances or recedes, and these Sentinels are crucial to ensuring a prosperous and safe America,” Needham said. Heritage Action’s legislative scorecard included 66 House votes and eight cosponsorships and 67 Senate votes and seven cosponsorships. Republicans averaged 66 percent in the House and 73 percent in the Senate. Democrats averaged 15 percent and 6 percent, respectively.

Lady Redskins win in OT Go for first state crown after beating No. 1 Ottoville BY KEN BARHORST

SDN Photo/Todd B. Acker

OTTOVILLE’S ABBY Siefker keeps the ball away from Darian Rose (right) and Renae Meyer of Fort Loramie in action in the D-IV state tournament Friday in Columus.

COLUMBUS — Fort Loramie’s Lady Redskins went in at halftime Friday feeling bad about how they played. But at the same time, they were encouraged to be trailing by only three points. Thank you Hallie Benanzer. When Reggi Brandewie came off the bench and got a basket with only 25 seconds left in the first quarter, it marked Fort Loramie’s first points of the game. But it tied the score at 2-2 in a turnover-marred start to the Division IV girls basketball semifinals at the Schottenstein Center. No. 1-ranked Ottoville was the first to hit its stride and the Lady Green threatened to make things real tough on the Lady Redskins. But Benanzer, just a sophomore, didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger, taking advantage of Ottoville’s preoccupation with stopping Loramie star Darian Rose. She hit three three-pointers in the second quarter alone, the last one pulling Loramie even at 15-15. And even though Ottoville scored the final three-points of the period to lead at the half, it was the Lady Redskins that took the momentum into the break. They had to battle back again, and finally tied it on a bucket by Meg Westerheide — her only one of the game — with under a minute to play. And with 6-foot-2 star Abby Siefker on the bench with five fouls, Ottoville was no match in the overtime. Rose, who finished with 21 despite going scoreless in the first half, hit a tough reverse layup inside, then walked repeatedly to the free throw line, where she added eight points to score all 10 of Loramie’s points in the overtime. And Ottoville, which struggled all day against Loramie’s pressure, didn’t have Siefker to turn to. The 49-42 verdict put the Lady Redskins in the state

FORT LORAMIE sophomore Hallie Benanzer lets a threepointer fly in D-IV state semiaction Friday in final Columbus. Benanzer was a key player for the Lady Redskins in their overtime win, hitting four threes. championship game today at 5:15 against Berlin Hiland. Fort Loramie is making its seventh trip to the state tournament, and its still looking for its first championship. And with Anna playing this morning at 10:45 in the D-III state title game, it could be a banner day for the Shelby County League. “Hallie really rose to the occasion,” said Loramie coach Carla Siegel. “The first half was not what we anticipated. We thought we would score off their turnovers, but it wasn’t happening. I didn’t know what the girls were doing in that first half. “But we had some girls that really stepped up who don’t play all that much, like Hallie and Kelly Turner.” Ottoville’s Siefker wasn’t

much of a factor, except for making it tough for Loramie to go inside. She finished with just nine points. However, six-foot Rachel Beining picked up the slack and hurt the Lady Redskins down low. She finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds, but proved to be her team’s Achilles heel late in the game when she couldn’t hit free throws. A 56-percent shooter from the line, she was just 2for-8 and missed two crucial free throws to allow Westerheide’s bucket to knot the score. “I thought Renae Meyer’s defense on Siefker was unreal,” said Siegel. “She gave a great defensive effort.” Ottoville opened up a sixpoint lead after three quarters and made it seven on a pair of free throws with 4:15 remaining. The Lady Green seemed to have an answer for every Loramie bucket until Rose converted a three-point play with 2:21 remaining that cut the lead to 39-37. A few seconds later, Siefker fouled out and Beining missed the critical free throws. Rose had five assists to go with her 21 points and Benanzer finished with 12 points, all on threes. Loramie was 15-for-40 from the field for 37.5 percent and 14-for-21 from the line. Ottoville was 15-for-45 for 33 percent and just 12-for-21 from the line. The Lady Redskins were outrebounded 39-25, but forced Ottoville into 32 turnovers. Fort Loramie (49) Westerheide 1-1-3; Rose 5-0-21; Boerger 2-1-5; Meyer 0-1-1; Ordean 01-1; Turner 2-0-4; Benanzer 4-0-12; Brandewie 1-0-2. Totals: 15-14-49. Ottoville (42) Turnwald 2-4-8; Mangas 1-2-4; Vorst 1-0-2; Beining 8-2-18; Siefker 33-9; Eickholt 0-1-1. Totals: 15-12-42.

New Knoxville’s Piehl tournament MVP New Knoxville graduate Brad Piehl led the University of Findlay Oilers to the championship of the Great Lakes Athletic Conference postseason tournament last week, being named the tourney’s Most Valuable Player. Piehl had 12 points and eight rebounds in a win over Michigan Tech, then scored 14 points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked two shots in the championship win over Lake Superior State. Piehl dropped in eight of nine free throws in the win. Derek Billing, Anna Billing capped off an outstanding season at Lake Superior State by being named for the second year in a row to the All-Great Lakes Athletic Conference second team, as well as being named to the all-tournament team. In the tournament, he had 18 points







and three assists and was a perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line against Grand Valley State, then had 12 points in the championship game against Findlay. Also named to the Capital One All-District team, Billing finished with a 15.2 scoring average, was third in the conference in three-pointers per game with 2.5, and now has 183 three-pointers in his career at the school. He also went over the 1,000-point mark late in the season. A junior, he

heads into next season with 1,085 career points. Megan Fogt, Anna Fogt also capped off an outstanding year by being named to the AllGreat Lakes Conference second team. Just a sophomore, Fogt averaged a double-double for Hillsdale of 14.8 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. She had 13 double-doubles this season. She also had 35 blocks, which is thirdmost in Hillsdale history for a single season, and shot 58 percent from the field.



In addition, she excels in the classroom, carrying a 3.8 grade point average. Stacy Timmerman, New Bremen Timmerman had a brilliant season for the Capital University basketball women’s team, and the Ohio Athletic Conference recognized it by naming her to the All-OAC second team for the second consecutive season. A senior, she finished her career at Capital with 1085 points, 10thmost on the all-time list. She became only the 19th girls basketball player in school history

to reach 1,000 points in her career. She led the team in scoring at 14.2 per game, and in rebounding at 6.5 per game, while shooting 46 percent from the field and 71 percent from the free throw line. Wes Hunsucker, Anna Hunsucker pitched the first complete game of the season for St. Francis University of Fort Wayne, going all seven innings and scattering seven hits. He allowed three runs, all earned, while striking out one and walking one in a 4-3 win over Warner. He is 1-1 on the year and leads the team in innings pitched with 11. Michael Travis, New Bremen Travis is a member of the mens track team at Findlay and became an All-American last week when he ran on the 1600 relay team at the NCAA Division II National In-

door Championships. The foursome ran a 3:14 to place seventh. Dillon Webster, New Bremen Webster is not only a teammate of Travis at Findlay, but also on the 1600 relay team that placed seventh last week in the D-II indoor championships, meaning he, too, is an All-American. Ben Hogenkamp, Minster Hogenkamp is a member of the mens golf team at Wittenberg, which opened the season with a victory in the Members Invitational in Hilton Head, S.C. Hogenkamp shot a 78 in the one-day event. Jeff Grillot, Versailles A sophomore pitcher at St. Francis, Grillot came on in relief of Hunsucker against Northwood and wound up getting the win in a 7-6 victory.

NEBRASKA'S SHAVON Shields and Ohio State's Deshaun Thomas battle for a loose ball during the

second half of an NCAA college basketball game at the Big Ten tournament Friday in Chicago.

Bucks rout Nebraska 71-50 (24-7), who have won six straight games and seven of eight overall. Brandon Ubel had 16 points and seven rebounds for the Cornhuskers (15-18).

Wisconsin upsets Michigan Wisconsin just kept missing. The Badgers were icy cold from long range, simple layups a risky proposition. And they only trailed by three at the break. When Ben Brust and Co. finally found their stroke, it was all over for Michigan. Brust scored 11 of his 14 points in the second half and No. 22 Wisconsin knocked off the sixthranked Wolverines 68-59 in the second round of the Big Ten tournament on Friday. "Just a great team effort," coach Bo Ryan said. "Guys picked each other up. They didn't get

Indiana advances No matter what happens the rest of the way, Indiana coach Tom Crean believes his team deserves a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. He probably won't have to lobby hard if the Hoosiers keep this up. Cody Zeller scored 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead No. 3 Indiana past Illinois 8064 Friday in the Big Ten quarterfinals. The top-seeded Hoosiers (27-5) are off to a good start after claiming their first outright conference title in two decades and earning a first-round bye. They took control midway through the first half and withstood a mild push in the second, avenging a two-point loss at Illinois (22-12) last month. That set up a matchup with Wisconsin in Saturday's semifinals.

would stand. A five-time Bristol winner, Busch had never qualified higher than ninth at the Tennessee bullring. “We felt we’d have a shot for the pole, but we’ve felt that many times before and we’ve ended up 30th or something,” said the Joe Gibbs Racing driver. Kasey Kahne qualified second in a Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports with a lap at 128.995 and felt like he had a shot at beating Busch’s mark. “I knew Kyle had put down a great lap and a track record, so I knew I had to go pretty hard,” Kahne said. “I just felt like I may have given up a little bit in (turns) 1 and 2, which would have made it really close for the pole.” Busch’s teammate Denny Hamlin was third at 128.960 and said Sunday could be a good race at Bristol. “I think we’re going to see one of the best races we’ve ever seen in a long time here,” Hamlin. That’s an about-face for Hamlin, who was fined $25,000 by NASCAR for criticizing the new Gen-6 car.

frustrated when the shots weren't going down in the first half. We took care of that in the second half, and continued to hustle on defense." Traevon Jackson had 16 points for the Badgers (22-10), who will play top-seeded Indiana in the semifinals on Saturday. Ryan Evans added 12 points, six rebounds and six assists. "It's the old cliche, defense wins championships," Evans said. "We understand that here. Anything we can do to slow those guys down and get our shots will move us forward." Trey Burke had 19 points and seven assists for Michigan (26-7), but the Big Ten player of the year was 8 for 22 from the field. Tim Hardaway Jr. shook off an ankle injury in the first half and finished with 14 points and nine boards.

CHICAGO (AP) — DeShaun Thomas and Sam Thompson had 19 points apiece, helping No. 10 Ohio State rout Nebraska 71-50 in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals on Friday night. The Buckeyes turned a close game into a runaway with an impressive 30-5 spree spanning halftime that included a little bit of everything. LaQuinton Ross connected on three consecutive 3-pointers, Aaron Craft made a couple of nifty passes and Thompson had two jams to go along with a 3-pointer. Thomas closed it out with a strong reverse dunk that lifted the Buckeyes to a 54-28 lead with 12:01 left. The junior forward flexed and yelled after the big slam led to a celebration on the Ohio State sideline. Ross finished with 11 points for the Buckeyes

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Count Kyle Busch among those who likes NASCAR’s new race car. Of course, a new track record is bound to draw praise from any driver. Busch won his first career pole at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday with a lap in his Toyota at 129.535 mph, breaking Ryan Newman’s 10-year-old track record of 128.709. “This new car, I like driving it because you can drive it like the older car we had years ago where you could just abuse it a little bit and drive it a little harder,” Busch said. “The old car was all about being smooth and precise and this one here, you can make a little bit more speed by trying a little bit harder.” Busch tried hard enough Friday to shred the mark set by Newman, who had been the first driver to go under 15 seconds when he set the lap record. Busch was one of nine drivers to go under 15 seconds in qualifying and his time of 14.813 is the new record. Still, he wasn’t sure it

Cincinnati’s BEL-MAR LANES HONOR ROLL open-day parade shorter CINCINNATI (AP) — The head of Cincinnati's annual baseball opening day parade says he's making it shorter this year to move things along and eliminate duplication in the types of groups that participate. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports last year's parade lasted two-and-ahalf hours, making it only 14 minutes shorter than the Reds' first regular season game that day.

cially because both the hemoglobin level and the neutrophil count are low, I think it might be wise to discuss this with a hematologist — an expert in blood conditions. The hematologist may agree that it is reasonable to just watch it or may decide to do some additional testing. You may need a bone marrow biopsy, the removal of a small amount of bone marrow through a needle in the hip. Please let me know what happens. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 78-year-old woman. A CT scan showed I have a prolapsed bladder. I have occasional discomfort in the morning. What is the best treatment? Should I see a urologist or an OB/GYN doctor? Is this a very common prob-

lem? — M.M. ANSWER: A prolapsed bladder, also called a cystocele (SIST-o-seel), is when the structures between the bladder and the vagina weaken and allow the bladder to bulge downward into the vagina. The damage often happens during childbirth, but no symptoms may occur until well after menopause due to the effect of estrogen. It is quite common. Both urologists and gynecologists treat this condition, and there are doctors with expertise in both fields, predictably called urogynecologists. Treatment depends on how bad the prolapse is anatomically (that is, how far the bladder drops into the vagina) and how bad your symptoms are.

March 16, 1913 Harry Hollinger, an employee of the R. Given & Company, accidentally got his right thumb caught in a machine at the plant yesterday afternoon and as a result the thumb was cut off. Hollinger, who was a member of last year’s ball team, was signed to pitch for Ed McKernon’s Battle Creek, Michigan team the coming season. Whether the injury will disqualify him is not known. Hollinger is a left-handed pitcher and the injury to his right hand may not affect his pitching. ————— Louis Dill, who said he lives in Piqua, was fined $10 and costs and sent to jail for five days, when he pleaded guilty in mayor’s court this morning to stealing nine pool balls at the Elks Café.

However, if the answer to any of my questions is yes, I think you should take a sober look at the entire relationship. DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law is addicted to prescription painkillers and has been for more than 10 years. She went to rehab once, but relapsed and hasn’t been able to get clean since. She has tried to quit on her own, but ends up having great emotional stress and slight psychotic episodes and starts again. My problem is, my husband sees her addiction as “manageable.” He sees no harm in having her watch our 3-year-old daughter, even though he has told me he has seen her nod off with her eyes rolled back like drug ad-

dicts do, usually during the afternoon. When we argue about this, he becomes defensive and attacks my family for being “overprotective and paranoid.” Am I right to put my foot down? I’m sick and tired of fighting over this. — NOT PARANOID IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR NOT PARANOID: Continue putting your foot down! A person whose eyes have rolled back after taking drugs or alcohol hasn’t “nodded off.” The person has lost consciousness and PASSED OUT. In your mother-in-law’s case, it means that while she may be physically present, she is completely unavailable to supervise your child. Leaving your daughter under the care of a person in this condition is child endangerment. That’s why you can’t allow it.

Student Organizations are an Important Component of Career and Technical Education Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) are organizations designed to support students in career and technical education (CTE). Career and technical education schools like Upper Valley Career Center help prepare high school and adult learners for the next step on their career pathway. Forty-eight percent of Upper Valley CC high school grads take the step into postsecondary education after graduationi. Eighty-eight percent chose to enter the workforce and/or attend collegeii. CTSOs help Career and Technical educators connect rigorous academic content with technical subject matter to help students get a head start on career goals. Career and Technical Student Organizations support that effort by encouraging students to develop critical leadership skills as well as technical abilities. The competitive component of CTSO participation provides invaluable motivation and recognition for excellence. Upper Valley Career Center has taken a new approach to the operation of CTSO on campus by designating one day per quarter as CTSO Day. All organizations meet at the same time during those scheduled events. Jason Haak, Executive Director, explains, “Completion of the Ohio Schools Facility Commission renovation project and the technology updates it includ-

ed, allows us to accommodate all five student organizations at once.” He says that spatial limitations which had been a stumbling block in the past have been overcome with the addition of large drop down screens, amplification and integrated projection systems. “The addition of this technology makes it possible to accommodate all 500 SkillsUSA members in one seating since it virtually connects the large Dining Commons with onstage activity in the Lecture Center,” Haak added. Haak points out that by conducting the meetings simultaneously they have successfully increased student participation to 100% and decreased the disruptions to academic classes and labs. “We recognize the important role of CTSOs in Career and Technical Education. They create good will and build enthusiasm for achievement and help develop the career, leadership, and personal skills which will help our students become outstanding citizens and life-long learners.

Family Career and Community Leaders of America Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) helps young men and women become strong leaders in families, careers, and communities. The Upper Valley Career Center Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC), and Family and Consumer Science satellite programs maintain the local chapter. Each program elects officers. Culinary Arts and Early Childhood Education and Care participate in CTSO Days activities together and share responsibility for leading and organizing alternate meetings. The February Chapter meeting focused on Healthy Living and Healthy Eating. It was an active learning experience with students moving through a series of stations that included exercise led by Bobby Chadeayne, manager of Anytime Fitness, Piqua ; student-led presentations that included taste tests of healthy food options, and a presentation by Penny Clark from Dorothy Love,

Sidney. Clark helped students read and interpret the information on food labels. Students were surprised by the levels of unhealthy trans fats in some of their favorites food choices, but they were also able to identify better options that are equally appealing. Both Culinary Arts and Early Childhood Education and Care maintain very active schedules beyond their FCCLA involvement. Culinary Arts began operating the school’s new restaurant in November. The Cornerstone @ 8811 opened in November and has become a popular community hotspot open for lunch on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday each week when school is in session. Level l students take the first shift and are replaced by their Level ll counterparts for the second. The state licensed preschool for children 18 months through 5 years old is also operated by Level l and Level ll students. The student “teachers” practice developmentally appropriate procedures

and develop activities for the children. The preschool operates one morning a week for toddlers, two mornings a week for three and fouryear-olds, and three afternoons a week for the four and five-yearolds. The preschool is state licensed by the Department of Education and aligns with the state of Ohio’s Early Learning Content Standards. With all these responsibilities the FCCLA students were excited to participate in local and regional competitions. Regional and state winners may be found at

The FFA Chapter at Upper Valley Career Center is 84 members strong on campus through Ag and Power Technologies (APT), Environmental Occupations (EO), and Horticulture and Landscape Management (LM). Additional Agriculture programs and their FFA chapters operate through Upper Valley Career Center satellites. Founded as the "Future Farmers of America" the organization is still future focused and still deals with issue related to feeding the hungry. FFA encourages members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways including bio-science, botany, chemical engineers, agronomist, veterinary practitioners, mechanics, technicians, market analyses, and entrepreneurs. Across the nation there are 557,318 FFA members, aged 12‒21, in 7,498 chapters. Upper Valley FFA Chapter conducted a Greenhand Ceremony this fall with a total of 26 members receiving the degree. As the first level of achievement, The Greenhand Degree is normally earned by younger students, but many of the FFA members at the Career Center are newcomers to Ag Education by virtue of their program. “The Greenhand degree is a worthy goal for our students,” said Dr. Gene Coordonnier program supervisor. “It symbolizes growth and indicates that higher achievements are ahead. That’s what we want for all students,” he adds. Regional and state winners may be found at Each of the three on-campus programs maintains a tight calendar of community events, service, and “extreme” learning. The Ag and Power Technologies students “extremely” enjoyed their experience operating heavy equipment. Jeff Weeks worked with both level l and level ll students as they practiced maneuvers. Landscape and Horticulture students will have finished starts and operated garden shop sales during two seasons. Working in the new, fully automated greenhouse gives the students the opportunity to work and learn during all four seasons with the added bonus of retail experience. The annual poinsettia and spring flower sales are community favorites. John Kreitzer looks forward to more turf work with the students this spring. The Environmental Occupations program kicks off the year with an 10-day field trip to Yellowstone National Park. Participating seniors are amazed by the diverse eco systems, plant and animal species, and the extreme beauty of natural wonders such as “Old Faithful’. Their enhanced appreciation of natural resources serves them well as they maintain the school’s nature preserve, wetlands, and museum. Together the programs provided a sponsor an Animal Display which is enjoyed by Pre-School students as well as Career Center students and staff. The chapter committed a significant amount of community service time to working with Agape in Sidney. The non-profit’s mission to assist members of the community with food provisions is right in keeping with FFA’s movement “Feeding the World— Starting at Home.”

Business Professionals of America Business Professionals of America (BPA) is the professional organization for students enrolled in Computer Information Technology and Interactive Media at the Career Center as well as Computer Information Systems at Sidney High School and Information Technology at Troy High School. There are currently 58 students participating on campus. The full organization has 43,000 members in over 2,300 chapters in 23 states. Each class elects officers to take leadership role with fund raising, chapter meetings and business. Interactive Media class presidents are Ashley Gilmore, Piqua, Level ll and Julie Echeman, Sidney, Level l. Class presidents in Computer Information Technology are Anthony Kipp, Anna, Level l, and John Hampton Piqua, Level ll. BPA students welcomed special speakers from Minster Bank to their October meeting. Julie Uhlenhake and Alisa Weber shared excellent financial information and gave each one a $25voucher for opening a checking account with Minster Bank if desired. Danielle Powers, Staffmark, Troy, gave a presentation on important interview techniques in December. Paul Brown of Riverside of Miami County kicked off BPA’s Annual Special Olympic emphasis at the February chapter meeting. Support of Special Olympics is a national emphasis that the Upper Valley Career Center chapter embraces

fully with fund raising and community service. Each year the Interactive Media and Computer Information Technology students sell paper “shoes” to raise money for their spring walk-a-thon. This drive is currently in full swing and continues up to the Regional Walk-a-Thon in April. The Career Center students are actively involved with Special Olympics on a personal level than might be expected. Each March they participate in fun basketball game with the Miami County Special Olympics basket ball team and invite Special Olympians to join them for lunch and games at Young’s Dairy immediately following the Walk-a-Thon. BPA sponsors skill competition each year allowing students to demonstrate their proficiency in technical and professional areas related to their business field. State competitions will be held March 21 and 22 in Columbus. Upper Valley Career Center and affiliated satellite program students from Troy High School and Sidney High School will be competing in 15 different competitions at the State event. The advisors for these students are: David Briggs, Piqua; Susan Caudill, St. Paris; Connie Keim (Troy HS), Casstown; and Joe Spangler (Sidney HS), Sidney. Regional and state winners may be found at

as well as provides opportunities for gaining an understanding in the history, ethics and programs of the profession. At the National level the organization is focused on attracting exemplary future educators to begin averting the teacher shortages in math, science, and special education. Local chapters help motivate students interested in education-related careers by encouraging them to set educational and career goals early in life, focus on academic achievement, explore teaching through direct experience in classrooms, and become exemplary citizens through school and community service. Rebecca Kleinhenz works with 14 seniors split between morning and afternoon sections of the

Teacher Academy program at Upper Valley. This senior-only program allows participants to spend a great deal of their time in local classrooms observing teachers in elementary, middle and high schools. The FEA students kick off the year with a community service project at Shelby Hills and a fund raiser to help support their chosen charities. The morning students chose to contribute toward Backpacks for School Lunches helping to purchase backpacks for students who need weekend meals. The afternoon students chose to send funds to Children’s Medical Center, Dayton. Kleinhenz says “Our students prove their maturity and professionalism over and over again,” Kleinhenz said.

Teacher Academy was chosen to participate in the Ohio ACTE Student Showcase in the Atrium at the Ohio Statehouse on March 7. This honor allowed the students to display samples of their work and share first-hand accounts of their experience at Upper Valley Career Center with state officials including Representative Richard N. Adams, Ohio House District 80. On March 8 they attended the FEA State Competition and Conference where Miranda Schaeffer from Troy High School received 9th place for her original children's literature book. All enjoyed presentations by motivational speaker Bruce Bouski and Carole Morbitzer, Ohio Teacher of the Year.

Current Version of the GED Test Expires at the End of 2013 Career Center encourages adults to finish before the deadline The current version of the GED (high school equivalency) test expires at the end of 2013. Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED test but not passed all five parts have until the end of 2013 to pass; or they will need to start over with the 2014 Test. Randy Trask, president and CEO of GED Testing Service says, “Anyone who has already started the GED test, your future is calling…You owe it to yourself. Don’t

miss the chance to turn one small step into your next big opportunity in life.” Upper Valley Career Center GED Chief Examiner Rose Hemm couldn’t agree more. “A GED opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” she said. Hemm wants to be sure that everyone is aware of the upcoming change and deadline. GED test-takers are encouraged to act now to finish and pass before

the current test expires. Interested GED test-takers can contact Hemm at 937-778-8491, extension 301 or Some points to consider: The current GED cost is $40 or $10 per subject area vs. the 2014 GED which will cost $120 or $24 per subject area. The current GED is administered by booklet, but the 2014 GED will only be available by computer. First-time GED test-takers are

required to create a Secure Application for Enterprise (SAFE) Account with the Ohio Department of Education by August 9, 2013 to be able to test in 2013. Visit, click on GED, application, and follow directions to create an account. Once established the SAFE Account is where the individual can apply and pay to test, register into a testing session, and view test results. The last day to take the current

version of the GED® test at Upper Valley Career Center is December 10. Please remember the SAFE Account registration deadline required to test in 2013 is August 9. Hemm is available to answer questions about the changes and the information given here or you can learn more at Her main message, “Now is the time to take action to reach this goal.”

New Electrical Power Line Mechanic Program Partnership with Warren County Career Center makes it possible Upper Valley Career Center and Warren County Career Center are collaborating to offer the Electrical Power Line Mechanic program a 10-month, 900-hour training program. Dr. Nancy Luce, Superintendent of Upper Valley Career Center says, “Given the demand for power line technicians, this program provides an excellent opportunity for anyone with the interest to begin a new career.” Ben Brigham, Industrial Coordinator at Upper Valley Career Center agrees. “Based on industry projections, this is a strong career choice because the anticipated number of retirements is much greater than the workforce currently available.” Warren County Career Center has been offering this program for several years with great success. Their personnel will deliver the training on campus at the Upper Valley Career Center ATC in Piqua where the utility pole training course is being installed. Brigham emphasizes that this training is for men and women who enjoy being physically active and like working outdoors. “This is a demanding job. Successful students will be in excellent physical condition, and should be prepared for working outside year-round in any and all weather.” He says travel is also a consideration since these technicians are asked to supply rapid response throughout the region following severe storms. The bottom line is students will have job opportunities with utility companies, as contractors that do high-voltage line work, or for the telephone and cable companies. Brigham says there are

Work-release program continues in Sidney parks Members of the Sidney Recreation Board learned during a recent meeting that the city is continuing its contract with the Shelby County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office for jail inmates in the work-release program to perform work at local parks. Under the contract, four inmates, under the supervision of a deputy, trim trees and cut weeds along guardrails, fences and ditches at parks around

the city, as well as around headstones at Graceland Cemetery. The program runs from March through October, with the inmates working eight hours a day, five days a week. The city pays the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office $57,000 per year for the service, which park officials report is a great help in maintaining local parks. Members learned that the Parks and Recreation Depart-

ment will participate in the health fair planned April 20 at Dorothy Love Retirement Community to promote recreation programs and the Sidney Municipal Pool. It was reported that a preliminary grant application has been prepared for submission to the Community Foundation for funds to reinstate swimming lessons at the pool. The grant would fund a two-week

program. Funding for lessons was eliminated in 2010 due to budget cutbacks. In other business, it was reported that Army recruits performed volunteer work recently at Tawawa Park. In a program arranged by Chuck Craynon, 24 recruits and seven recruiters worked at the park. They are expected to return to the park this spring to do more work.

Duane Gaier, parks and recreation director, advised the board that an application for a grant from the Cincinnati Reds for improvements at Custenborder Field was declined. Board member Kelty Inman said she would be ending her service on the board. Her term ends April 1 and she plans to return to school. Inman said she has enjoyed her time on the board.

At last! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) For the past six weeks, you have suffered from Mercury going retrograde in your sign, causing errors, delays and confusion. As of today, that’s over. YOU BORN TODAY Many of you are attracted to the performing arts, particularly music, dance and theater, because you have a desire to express your creativity. Not only are you personally innovative and imaginative, you are drawn to innovative situations. You love anything that is new and fresh.

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 branches are Union trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks.
