CHICAGO (AP) — Across the country, Americans plunked down an estimated $1.5 billion on the longest of long shots: an infinitesimally small chance to win what could end up being the single biggest lottery payout the world has ever seen. But forget about how the $640 million Mega Millions jackpot could change the life of the winner.

Effort to ease budget problems Shelby County officials have come up with an innovative plan to solve the county’s budget woes, although it may not be popular with the traveling public. Shelby County Commissioners Thursday voted unanimously to institute a toll program for the three most heavily traveled bridges under county jurisdiction. The program is expected to generate thousands of dollars each week for the cash-strapped entity. “We know some folks will be opposed to the plan,” said Commissioner Jack Toomey, “but it’s better than a levy or sales tax increase. If everybody gives a little as they SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg travel throughout the county, For photo reprints, visit they won’t miss it and it will THE FAIR Road bridge that spans the CSX Railroad tracks near Sidney Middle School is one come back to them in the way of three in Shelby County that will become toll bridges by October in an effort to ease the county’s financial problems.

Sheriff’s Office employee arrested Accused of misusing government computer program BY KATHY LEESE A Shelby County Sheriff's Office employee was arrested Thursday and charged with a felony offense after it was found she had allegedly misused a government computer Hughes program for personal reasons. Christy Exley Hughes, 33, of Sidney, a dispatcher with the Sheriff ’s Office, was charged for allegedly using the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG) computer program to look up information on people and make it public. OHLEG is a program administered by the Ohio Attor-

ney General's office. Law enforcement officials are able to look up names, addresses, driver's license, FBI numbers, sex offender status and other personal information on an individual and also on the individual's neighbors. Suspended Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel is also facing five counts of the same violation. His trial is scheduled for this summer. Interim Sheriff John Lenhart confirmed the charge against Hughes, a 10-year employee with the department. “We had a complaint that an individual’s personal information was obtained. When we investigated, we found out that Christy Hughes, the suspect, got on a government computer (program), OHLEG, and retrieved information about this person and their family and apparently for (her) own

use, used that information,” Lenhart said. “We had a complaint that she violated the policy. There were several instances. She was on several computer programs ... disseminating that to the public. When somebody does something like this, we’re not going to tolerate that. The public trust is what’s important to us,” Lenhart said. “That’s against Shelby County Sheriff's Office policy; it’s against OHLEG (policy),” Lenhart explained. The sheriff said when an employee uses OHLEG, it requires a password that flashes a warning that the information obtained can only be used for official government purposes. Lenhart said Hughes will appear in Sidney Municipal Court on the charge Monday at 1:30 p.m. She faces up to

one year in jail if convicted. Hughes has reportedly been placed on administrative leave without pay. A predisciplinary hearing in the case regarding her employment will be held at the Sheriff’s Office on Monday at 9 a.m. as required by the union contract. “What we’re concerned about now is felony criminal violations,” Lenhart said. “It is my opinion that the general public is not excited about the government having authority to look at personal information. The Sheriff’s Office takes this very seriously.” “As the sheriff, I’m saddened by having to arrest one of our own, but when abuses of confidentiality come up, we have to step up to the plate,” Lenhart said. He said he will release more information about the case next week.

of continued government services.” The plan calls for automated toll booths to be set up at entrances to the following bridges, two of which are actually in the city of Sidney but maintained by the county: • The Fair Road bridge over the CSX Railroad tracks near the fairgrounds and Sidney Middle School. • The Russell Road bridge over the railroad tracks near Gas America. • The County 25A bridge that spans Finkenine Ditch north of Mason Road. Each booth will require a fee of 50 cents, payable in the form of two quarters to be tossed into a basket. An arm will then raise and allow the vehicle to enter the bridge and proceed. “We have looked into the economics of such a plan,” said Commissioner

Larry Kleinhans, “and it’s by far the least painful solution to our financial troubles. There will be an initial investment to purchase and install the equipment, but thereafter it’s all profit.” Kleinhans observed that since the booths will be fully automated, there will be no labor costs. The county auditor’s office will oversee collections and any necessary repairs will fall to the county engineer’s staff. Sheriff John Lenhart, who attended Thursday’s meeting, expressed concern about vandalism to the machines, as well as possible theft. “Between the Sidney Police and my department, we’ll have to step up patrols and keep a close eye on these locations,” Lenhart said. “We’ve done a lot of research into the issue,” said Commissioner Julie


Ehemann, “and the positives greatly outweigh the potential negatives. In Ohio there are toll bridges in Belpre and Bellaire and they report very few problems. Once people get used to the idea it just becomes a fact of life and a part of their daily routine.” County Engineer Bob Geuy, who also was present, said the Fair Road and Russell Road bridges each convey from 15,000 to 20,000 vehicles per day and the 25A bridge averages about 6,000 per day. Geuy expressed concern that people will quickly figure out alternate routes in order to avoid the tolls, thus defeating the purpose. “Well, once people spend a dollar to travel out of their way to avoid paying a 50-cent toll, they’ll discover the math doesn’t add up,” said

Toomey. “We have smart folks here and they’ll do what’s right for both themselves and the county.” Commissioner-elect Bob Guillozet, who sat in on the meeting, suggested the toll bridge program be named after Toomey and Kleinhans, who are retiring at the end of the year. “I think it’s only fitting that their service be memorialized in some lasting way and what would be more meaningful than this?” he asked. “Every time someone drops 50 cents into the basket they will fondly remember these two great guys.” Ehemann made a motion to name the program “the Toomey-Kleinhans Toll Bridge System,” but the measure failed when Toomey and Kleinhans voted against it. “They’re just too mod-

Spay, neuter clinic set The Shelby County Animal Shelter will host a low-cost, prepay spay and neuter clinic April 9. The clinic offers pet owners a reduced cost to have their pets (dogs and cats) spayed or neutered. Pet owners must preregister for the clinic and must also pay

in advance by stopping by the Animal Shelter at 1100 Clem Road. The clinic will be held at the Shelby County Fairgrounds, 700 Fair Road. The clinic will be held in the Beige Building. There will also be an immunization clinic the same day at the same

location from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The numbers of immunizations are limited, so preregistration and prepay are required. For any questions or concerns, call Deputy Cami Frey or Robin Metz at the Shelby County Animal Shelter, 498-7201.

Rally held for man killed in shooting DAYTON (AP) — Supporters of a man killed in a shooting by apartment security guards have rallied to protest the southwest Ohio shooting they want investigated as a hate crime. More than 50 people gathered outside a Dayton courthouse on Friday in support of 25-year-old Dante Price, who police

say was fatally shot March 1 at an apartment complex. The Dayton Daily News reports that one of two guards says in a 911 call that they had to shoot at Price because he was trying to hit them with his vehicle. Federal officials are reviewing a request by the Dayton chapter of the Southern Christian

Leadership Conference that the Justice Department investigate. Price’s supporters want the guards charged. Dayton police have not released their report, saying they are still investigating. ___ Information from: Dayton Daily News,

Governor signs bill to teach founding documents State Rep. Ohio House Whip John Adams, R-Sidney, 78th District, has announced that the House has concurred on a conference committee report on Senate Bill 165, legislation that will incorporate the study of historically significant government documents into the educational curriculum of Ohio students. Adams Specifically, S.B. 165 requires that the social studies curriculum for elementary and secondary students in grades 4-12 includes the study of the Declaration of Independence, the Northwest Ordinance, the Constitution of the United States and Ohio Constitution. “It is important to ensure that the next generation of Ohio’s leaders has a firm grasp on Ohio and American history,” said Adams, who sponsored the

companion legislation, House Bill 211. “If these founding-fathers documents would be adhered to and taught, we wouldn’t be in the particular situation we’re in at the federal level with the expansion of government. I believe that one would better understand social problems, economics, foreign affairs and other issues if they first had a grounding in the foundation of this country’s origins through the study of these founding documents.” The study of these founding documents was diminished in the standards and curricula developed by the Ohio Department of Education during the previous administration, Adams said. If the legislation is passed, the State Board of Education would be required to revise the standards and curricula to include the additional content. S.B. 165 was signed by Gov. John Kasich Friday and will go into effect in 90 days.

COLUMBUS — State officials will unveil a new 57-ton lake dredger during a Monday afternoon event at Grand Lake St. Marys. This 12-inch dredger, named Brutus, will remove silt from the lake floor, thereby reducing the threat of potentially toxic blue-green algae blooms, and making it easier for boaters to navigate the lake. A spring alum treatment is scheduled to start Monday, two months sooner than last year, and will be applied to the entire lake. The treatment and dredging are part of the state’s multifaceted plan to correct water quality issues at Grand Lake St. Marys.

Details emerge on health plan BY ANN SANNER Associated Press

THIS UNDATED image provided by the Ohio Art Co., makers of Etch A Sketch, shows a detail of one of the ads for a new politics-themed ad campaign. The company is launching the campaign after making headlines nationwide when an aide for Mitt Romney compared his election campaign to the toy. Three ads in the campaign, tagged “Shake it Up, America,” poke fun at politics in general and maintain that the toy, created in 1960, is politically neutral.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The state’s plan to streamline medical care for some of its sickest, most expensive and difficult to treat patients includes changes designed to eliminate unnecessary health tests, prevent medication errors and keep people healthier and out of emergency rooms. The proposal for those enrolled in both Medicaid and Medicare could end up being a model for other states, said Ohio officials who drafted the plan. The officials are expected to send the details on Monday to the federal government, which must sign off on the changes. While the final details were still being worked out, state officials told The Associated Press on Friday that people who fall under the three-year pilot program would not see any immediate changes to their providers, though they could later. The target date for the plan to take effect is Jan. 1. There would be a transition period to the new managed care system, said Greg Moody, the director of the gover-

nor’s Office of Health Transformation. “It’s not so much changing the faces they see — the case worker and others who treat them in their homes — but trying to better coordinate the things they don’t see that may be out of whack,” Moody said in an interview. Beneficiaries are guaranteed the same nursing homes and case managers for the duration of the test run. Patients could keep their same primary care doctors and specialists for at least the first year. Otherwise, they would have to pick new physicians if those doctors weren’t in the new provider network. And highest-risk sick patients could keep their same doctors and visiting nurses for the first 90 days. Moody said the plan would not lock patients in to certain providers but give them a choice within the network. Choice was among the top concerns brought to state officials by those enrolled in the programs, as well as from advocate groups such the Ohio Olmstead Task Force, which monitors long-term care issues for people with disabilities.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Federal officials say marijuana worth more than $1 million has been found welded inside heavy machinery in a vacant Ohio warehouse. WBNS-TV reports five people were arrested Thursday at the warehouse in Columbus. DEA agents told the station they’d have to use a plasma torch to cut into eight machines called rakes, which and used to cut asphalt. State Highway Patrol Lt. Ann Ralston says troopers had earlier pulled over a commercial tractor-trailer for following too closely on Interstate 70 near Madison County. Police dogs indicated they smelled drugs, and an ensuing investigation led authorities to the warehouse. DEA officials say the suspects would be charged with possession and conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Final report released ELYRIA (AP) — The final report on the 2010 mauling death of a caretaker killed at a northeast Ohio exotic animal compound says the victim apparently was feeding the bear outside the cage when he was attacked. According to The (Elyria) Chronicle-Telegram, the Lorain County sheriff ’s report was released Thursday in the death of 24-year-old Brent Kandra. The original scenario described by authorities said he was killed after opening the cage for feeding. The death was ruled a workplace accident and the bear later was destroyed. Last year the owner was found dead and chained to his bed. The coroner’s office said he was asphyxiated in an apparent accident in what authorities called sexual role-playing.

Day honors Viet vets COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed into law Friday a proposal designating the day — along with each March 30 — as Vietnam Veterans’ Day. Supporters say the annual day is set aside to honor those who fought, died or are still unaccounted for in the Vietnam War. The date had been in flux as lawmakers wrestled with whether they should use March 29 like other states. Some veterans balked at that proposal. While it’s the anniversary of U.S. forces pulling out of Vietnam, it’s also the date when Lt. William Calley Jr. was convicted in the My Lai massacre of hundreds of Vietnamese civilians. Among those supporting the March 30 designation is retired Air Force Col. Tom Moe, a Vietnam prisoner of war and director of the state’s veterans services. Moe attended the bill’s signing.

Feds, 5 states to push for Great Lakes wind farms Politics part of system BY JOHN FLESHER Associated Press

CITY, TRAVERSE Mich. (AP) — The Obama administration and five states have reached an agreement to speed up approval of offshore wind farms in the Great Lakes, which have been delayed by cost concerns and public opposition. Under the deal, which administration officials disclosed to The Associated Press ahead of an announcement scheduled for Friday, state and federal agencies will craft a blueprint for speeding regulatory review of proposed wind farms without sacrificing environmental and safety standards. The Great Lakes have no offshore wind turbines, although a Cleveland partnership announced plans last year for a demonstration project that would place five to seven turbines in Lake Erie about 7 miles north of the city, generating 2030 megawatts of electricity. Offshore wind projects have been proposed elsewhere in the region, including Michigan and New York, stirring fierce debate.

nies to place up to 200 turbines, each about 450 feet high, in Lakes Erie and Ontario. The Canadian province of Ontario in February 2011 ordered a moratorium on wind energy development in its Great Lakes waters to allow more study of environmental issues.

COLUMBUS (AP) — State officials are arguing to the Ohio Supreme Court that politics are an inevitable and acceptable part of the process for drawing legislative lines. Officials including Gov. John Kasich and Senate President Thomas Niehaus say nothing in the state Constitution requires absolute neutrality when it comes to creating state House and Senate districts. The officials argued in a filing with the state Supreme Court Friday that Ohio has restrictions against politics being the exclusive force behind legislative lines.

Obama to face issue PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — President Barack Obama could be caught in an election-year bind on gay marriage, wedged between the pressure of supporters who want him to back same-sex marriage and the political perils of igniting an explosive social issue in the midst of the campaign. Interviews with gay rights advocates and people close to Obama’s campaign suggest it is no longer a matter of if, but when the president publicly voices his support. But Obama backers are split over whether that will happen before the November elections. Gay marriage is already a big issue in a handful of states that have it on their ballots in November, including Maine, where Obama was headlining two fundraisers Friday. The president also headlined fundraisers Friday in Vermont, one of six states, plus the District of Columbia, where gay marriage is legal.

Sanctions considered WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Friday he was plowing ahead with potential sanctions against countries that keep buying oil from Iran, including allies of the United States, in a deepening campaign to starve Iran of money for its disputed nuclear program. The world oil market is tight but deep enough to keep the squeeze on Iran, Obama ruled. The sanctions aim to further isolate Iran’s central bank, which processes nearly all of the Iran’s oil purchases, from the global economy. Obama’s move clears the way for the U.S. to penalize foreign financial institutions that do oil business with Iran by barring them from having a U.S.based affiliate or doing business here.

Old photos may be deceptive in Florida shooting case BY MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — When he was shot, Trayvon Martin was not the baby-faced boy in the photo that has been on front pages across the country. And George Zimmerman wasn’t the beefy-looking figure in the widely published mugshot. Both photos are a few years old and no longer entirely accurate. Yet they may have helped shape initial public perceptions of the deadly shooting. “When you have such a lopsided visual comparison, it just stands to reason that people would rush to judgment,” said Kenny Irby, who teaches visual journalism at the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank in St. Petersburg, Fla. The most widely seen picture of Martin, released by his family, was evidently taken a few years ago and shows a smiling, round-cheeked youngster in a red T-shirt. But at his death, Martin was 17 years old, around 6 feet tall and, according to his family’s attorney, about 140 pounds. Zimmerman, 28, is best known from a 7-year-old booking photo of an apparently heavyset figure with an imposing stare, pierced ear and facial hair, the orange collar of his jail uniform visible. The picture, released by police following the deadly shooting, was taken after Zimmerman’s

middle-class citizens. And it’s a cheap investment for the chance of a big reward, no matter how long the odds — 1 in 176 million. “Twenty to thirty dollars won’t hurt,” said Elvira Bakken of Las Vegas. “I think it just gives us a chance of maybe winning our dream.” So what exactly would happen if the country spent that $1.5 billion on something other than a distant dream? For starters, it could cure everyday worries for hundreds of thousands of American families hit by the Great Recession. It costs an average of $6,129 to feed the typical family for a year — meaning the cash spent on tickets could fill up the plates of 238,000 households. As gas prices climb faster than stations can change the numbers on the signs, the money spent on tickets could fill the tanks of 685,000 households annually. Or it could play politics. So far in this campaign, Republicans and President Barack Obama have spent $348.5 million. The amount spent on Mega Millions tickets could cover that tab four times over. Could the money dig governments out of debt? That’s a problem that even staggering ticket sales can’t solve. It could trim this year’s expected $1.3

‘Astronaut’ OK on ballot

For stocks, stable, impressive climb

Wages to increase BEIJING (AP) — Consumers probably won’t have to pay more for iPads, iPhones and other popular consumer electronics despite a Chinese company’s pledge to trim work hours and raise wages for its hardscrabble assembly workers. The paychecks have already been steadily growing even before this week’s pledge, and labor expenses remain a small portion of the total bill for most gadgets made in China. At most, the cumulative wage increases could crimp the profits of major technology companies. Manufacturers have a bigger worry in finding ways to save money on the parts that power the devices.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A congressional candidate in California's Central Valley can note on ballots that he used to be an astronaut. A Sacramento County judge ruled Thursday that Democrat Jose Hernandez can use the ballot designation “astronaut.” Hernandez is challenging freshman Rep. Jeff Denham, a Republican from Turlock, for California's 10th District seat. A Sacramento law firm had argued in a lawsuit that Hernandez's use of the moniker would violate state elections law because Hernandez has left NASA.

Giving $1.46 billion to a broker could purchase 2.4 million shares of Apple stock. (It would also be enough to buy about 2.4 million iPads at the starting price of $499. That’s almost as many as the 3 million new iPads that Apple has already sold.) Or consider the whimsical: A family of up to 12 could live for more than a century at Musha Cay, magician David Copperfield’s $37,000-a-night private island resort in the Exuma Cays of the Caribbean. For a more celestial vacation, the $1.5 billion wagered could purchase 7,600 tourist tickets for a ride into space aboard Virgin Galactic’s Space Ship Two. And it would pay for 26 rides for U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station aboard the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. It would even buy a stake in pop culture. Want to influence the next winner of American Idol? If it costs a quarter to text in a vote to Ryan Seacrest, and it takes 122 million votes to win as it did last season, the money could control the outcome of the next 47 seasons.

BY BERNARD CONDON Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — The bulls weren’t bullish enough. The stock market just had its best first quarter in 14 years. The surge has sent Wall Street analysts, some of whose forecasts seemed too sunny three months ago, scrambling to raise their estimates for the year. “That it’s up isn’t surprising. It’s the magnitude,” says Robert Doll, the chief equity investment manager at BlackRock, the world’s biggest money manager. Doll says stocks could rise 10 percent more before the end of the year. That would be enough to push the Dow Jones industrial average to an all-time high and the Standard & Poor’s (NYSE:MHP) 500 close to a record. For the first three months of the year, the Dow was up 8 percent and the S&P 12 percent, in each case the best start

BY JUSTIN POPE Associated Press In press releases and ads, colleges love boasting they’re “military friendly” and “veterans friendly” — and that isn’t just because veterans are usually good students and campus leaders. It’s also because the newly expanded Post 9/11 G.I. Bill will pay colleges of all types around $9 billion this year to educate nearly 600,000 veterans, and virtually every school wants to expand its slice of that pie. But some schools touting their spots on proliferating lists of “military friendly” colleges found in magazine guides and websites have few of the attributes educators commonly associate with the claim, such as accepting military credits or having a veterans organization on campus. Many are for-profit schools with low graduation rates. The designations appear on rankings whose rigor varies but whose methods are under fire. Often, they’re also selling ads to the colleges. Some websites help connect military and veteran students with degree programs that may match their interests, but don’t disclose they are lead aggregators paid by the institutions — often for-profit colleges

since the great bull market of the 1990s. The Nasdaq composite index, made up of technology stocks, has had an even more remarkable run — up 19 percent for the year, its best start since 1991. “I don’t think anyone could have predicted this,” says Chip Cobb, a senior vice president at Bryn Mawr Trust Asset Management. For these gains, he says, “I thought it would take all year.” The jump gives money managers like Cobb hope that ordinary folks burned by two deep bear markets in a decade will start buying again, propelling the indexes even higher. In a remarkable act of self-restraint — or foolishness, depending on your view — they have mostly stayed out of the market. One reason they may jump in now is that fear of looming disasters, like a full-blown debt crisis in Europe or a second recession in the United States, has faded. Bulls say investors will turn their attention to the only thing that really mat-

— whose programs they highlight. “They’re not real rankings,” said Tom Tarantino, a veteran who is deputy policy director of the advocacy group Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. “What they are is advertisement catalogues.” Labeling them “a huge problem,” he called for standards to be established for proper use of the term “military friendly” schools. There are signs something like that may happen. But as with the U.S. News & World Report college rankings, demand for signaling devices to help consumers shortcut complicated choices could make such lists tough to dislodge. Many experts say the lists are symptoms of a wider problem: Service members aren’t getting the advice they need to make sound decisions on using the substantially expanded education benefits. It’s no surprise businesses are stepping into that void. At a large military education conference last month in Florida, some educators criticized the lists and pushed for a sharpened definition of “military friendly” colleges, to be developed either by the federal government or an education coalition called Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges.

ters for stock prices in the long run — corporate profits. Another hopeful sign for gains is that those who have been buying stocks appear to be taking bigger risks than before, suggesting growing confidence. Last year, investors put much of their money into so-called defensive stocks, such as utilities and health care companies, which make money in bad times as well as good. This year, it’s the risky fare that’s being scooped up. Financial stocks are up 22 percent, the best among the 10 industry groups within the S&P. Technology companies are up 21 percent. Consumer discretionary stocks, like hotels and cable companies, are up 16 percent. Utilities are down 3 percent for the quarter, the only group in the red. Standard & Poor’s Capital IQ, a research firm, predicted at the beginning of the year that the S&P would hit 1,400 by the end of the year. By March 15, it had hit 1,403, and on Friday it was at 1,408.

TROY — The TroyHayner Cultural Center has opened a mini exhibit of what some designers have named the most beautiful purses in the world. The collection includes leather and jeweled-encrusted bags, minaudieres and pillboxes, as well as ornaments and jewelry designed by Judith Leiber. These items are on loan from Jean Wilson Reed and Maxine Orr. The exhibit will be on display until May 30 in the solarium of the center at 301 W. Main St. Leiber is the foremost

designer of fine handbags. While her day bags, made from luxury suedes, buttery leathers and hand-pleated reptile skins, are the last word in sophistication, her evening bags are elegant and unabashedly extravagant, decorated with onyx, tiger’s eye, lapis, amethyst, jade, rose quartz and other semiprecious stones. The tiny, jewel-encrusted evening bags, the minaudieres for which she is most noted, are witty, whimsimini-sculptures, cal crafted in every conceivable shape. From eggs and eggplants, to lady-

Leiber also made miniature versions of the bags that she calls pill boxes as well as jewelry and other items. Leiber’s career spanned pre-World War II Hungary, where she was the first woman accepted into the prestigious handbag guild, through her emigration to the U.S., to 1993, when she sold her company to Time Inc.

Midmark wins honors Hartzell breaks ground — VERSAILLES Teammates from Midmark Corp.’s Corporate and Marketing Communications Department took home top honors at the annual Hermes/ADDY competition presented by the American Advertising Fe d e r a t i o n - D a y t o n . Sales promotion materials for Midmark’s Be Free Barrier-Free Table promotion grabbed the gold. In addition, the Midmark team also received five silver awards spanning three categories: sales promotion, direct marketing and advertising industry selfpromotion. The Hermes/Addy Award competition is the advertising and marketing industry’s largest

competition. Its mission is to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising. Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local level is the first tier in a national competition. Entries receiving the Hermes award are automatically submitted to the next level of the three-tier national ADDY Awards Competition. This is the sixth consecutive year Midmark has earned awards at the competition. “It’s an honor to compete and be recognized for advertising excellence by some of the most creative minds in the greater Dayton area,” said Ken DeMange, Midmark direc-

tor of corporate and marketing communications. “Midmark is committed to improving healthcare by bringing efficient patient care to people around the world. To that end, our teammates are committed to developing innovative, highlyeffective marketing communication initiatives.” Midmark’s creative services team includes Tanya Jay-Coby, creative services manager; Jenny Puthoff, marketing initiatives manager; and their design, copywriting and coordinating teams: Rebecca Arling, Julie Bollenbacher, Angie Kaiser, Kevin Smith, Alec Thielman, Jaimi Hemmerich, Kelly Mueller and Emily Grillot.

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 Sunday, April 1, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a wonderfully creative day for your sign! Meanwhile, of course, Aries is the artisan of the zodiac because you love arts and crafts, and working with your hands. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Entertain at home today. Invite the gang over. This is a feelgood day that affects your home and family in a positive way. (It’s a good day for real-estate dealings as well.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Expect to meet new faces and discover new places today. Today has lots of exciting twists and turns that surely will teach you something new. Be open to this. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It’s very possible that you’ll think of ways to boost your income today. It’s also possible that you’ll see many ways to spend your income as well! Guard your

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, April 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might get caught up in sports or partying, and go overboard today. Just remember to line up a designated driver if you need one. Be smart and have no regrets. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’ll enjoy entertaining at home today. You feel that you want to do things in a big way, serving good food and drinks. You’ll be generous to family and guests. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful about promises you make to others, especially siblings and relatives. Don’t bite off more than you can chew (and you can chew a lot). CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be prudent with financial matters today. If you’re fearful that you’re spending too much money on something, listen to that little voice that is a warning.

possessions and money, however. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel adventurous and spontaneous today. (It’s almost as if there’s more electricity in the air.) You want to do something different, and you want to do it now! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Unexpected discoveries and research might make you leap for joy. Answers you’ve been seeking suddenly are staring at you in the face. Who knew? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Meetings in classes, gyms, coffee bars or places of work will provide a few surprises for you today. Expect the unexpected. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Feelings of independence will make you rebel against bosses and authority figures today. You want to do your own thing, and you don’t want others telling you what to do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Travel plans look exciting, but they might have to be modified or changed in some way. This is a wonderful day to study something new or explore new territory.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A whole new spin on how shared property should be dealt with might come to you today. Alternatively, someone might do a favor for you or give you a gift when you least expect it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with partners and close friends are interesting and stimulating today. Some of you are surprised by unexpected flirtations. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) New, high-tech equipment at work could be on the menu today. Others will find their work routine interrupted, but hopefully, for pleasant reasons. YOU BORN TODAY You are straightforward and sincere, and yet quite playful. People enjoy your company. Because you are wonderfully self-disciplined, many of you skillfully master a particular technique. You set high standards for yourself. Whatever you do, you want to do it the best you possibly can. Work hard to build or construct something in your year ahead, because your rewards will follow. Birthdate of: Wangari Maathai, Nobel laureate/environmentalist; Samuel R. Delany, author; Susan Boyle, singer.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a fun-loving, happy-golucky day for you. The Moon is in your sign, and you want to have fun! In fact, things will tend to go your way today. Yippee! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) It’s OK if you feel lazy today. Kick back and relax if you can. Everybody needs to have time off for rest and relaxation. (Even the government knows this.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’re very ambitious about attaining certain goals today. If you tell others about your ideas, they might think your reach exceeds your grasp. Oh well, who knows? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don’t promise more than you can deliver when talking to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs today. After all, you don’t want to end up with egg on your face, do you? (Ketchup helps.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be reasonable in your travel plans today. You might be tempted to go overboard in some way. Make sure you don’t regret your decisions later.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) If sharing something or deciding on how something is divided, don’t give away the farm today. It’s important that you develop a healthy self-interest for your own protection. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Enjoy good times with partners and close friends today. People are big-hearted and generous to each other, which is gratifying. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might not feel like working today, so just do the best you can. The truth is that everyone wants to play today and put work second. YOU BORN TODAY Many of you maintain a childlike, naive view of life. However, everyone can see you are honest and sincere. You have strong family values; nevertheless, you never give up your ideals and dreams. You fantasize about the future. (You have a great imagination!) In the year ahead, a major change might occur, perhaps something as significant as what took place around 2003.

For pain, use Tylenol, aspirin or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory like Advil or Aleve. You might want to invest in a new pair of walking shoes. If you don’t do that, buy foot cushions to insert in your shoes. They’re found in all drugstores. If the pain hasn’t resolved in two weeks, you must see the family doctor.

Students rank high at science fair Fifteen Lehman Catholic High School students participated in the 2012 District Science Fair at Central State University recently. Eight of the students returned with superior ratings and the opportunity to advance to the State Science Fair. Two of the eight earned perfect scores of 40 points. Junior Samantha Neumeier received a perfect score of 40 on her biochemistry project, “The Effect of Milk on Plant Growth.” Senior Nicole Larger received a perfect score of 40 on her engineering project, “The Efficiency of Insulators.” Larger was also the recipient of a scholarship from Central State University. Other Lehman students receiving superior ratings were junior Lauren Bosway (“Comparing the Amount of Saturated Fats in Oils”), sophomore MaKenna Cabe (“Music’s Many Moods”), senior Katie Catanzarite (“The Effects of UV Rays on the Bacteria in Raw Milk”), senior William Duritsch (“Phosphate Removal in Water”), senior Daniel Sehlhorst (“Ascorbic Acid Breakdown: A Time Trial”) and sophomore Grace Winhoven (“Percent of Time a House Fly Spends Grooming Itself by Body Parts”). In addition to their superiors, Duritsch and Catanzarite received $500 cash awards from Battelle. Students receiving excellent ratings at the district fair were freshman Josh West, senior Lexie Froning, freshman Maria Pannapara, junior Kathryn Rossman and senior Kandis Sargeant.

The mission of the academy is to foster curiosity, discovery and innovation for the benefit of society. The District Science Fair showcased more than 423 student projects. The State Science Fair is scheduled May 5 at The Ohio State University. The State Science Fair is the pinnacle of studentoriginated, inquiry-based science education for Ohio’s students. The academic equivalent of a state athletic championship, this year’s event is the largest of its kind in the nation. Drawing upon an annual base of more than 30,000 students at more than 1,000 local school science days or science fairs, more than 1,000 students in grades 7-12 from nearly 300 schools will be evaluated this year on their scientific research and communication skills. They will compete for more than 100 different scholarships and awards valued at more than $2.5 million. Both individual and team student research projects will be recognized. First held in 1949, the 58th Annual State Science Day is sponsored by the Ohio Academy of Science. Additional financial sponsors include American Electric Power, the Ohio Environmental Education Fund, Boehringer Ingelheim Roxane Inc., Battelle and Time Warner Cable.

It’s ‘The Other Game’ Ohio State-Kansas battle overshadowed by Kentucky-Louisville NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Welcome to “The Other Game” at the Final Four. OK, so, the Ohio StateKansas matchup may not have the fantastic freshmen, the outspoken coaches or blood-feud story line of the opening semifinal between Kentucky and Louisville. But this one still should be worth a two-hour investment in front of the TV set Saturday night. Besides the chance to watch two top-line teams play for a spot in the national title game, the Buckeyes-Jayhawks game offers a rare opportunity to see two All-Americans going at it with everything on the line. Ohio State is led by Jared Sullinger, the sophomore forward who missed the first matchup between these teams with a bad back. Kansas’ best player is Thomas Robinson, who had 21 points and seven rebounds in the Jayhawks’ 7867 win on Dec. 10. “In my eyes, he’s the college player of the year,” Sullinger said of Robinson. “I know some think different. But with his season, the way he took his team to the top,

Ohio State plays Kansas in a semifinal game on Saturday. you’ve just got to give it to him.” In fact, it’s Kentucky’s Anthony Davis who took player of the year awards from The Associated Press and college basketball writers Friday. But while Davis is a story of an ultra-talented freshman try-

ing to lead his team to a championship in what likely will be his only year with the Wildcats, Sullinger and Robinson approach college in a different way. At one point last season, Sullinger was viewed as a surefire lottery pick, a one-

and-done prospect with nothing much left to prove in college. He never saw it that way, however, and when Ohio State was eliminated from last year’s tournament as a No. 1 seed, the 6-foot-9 forward committed to staying in college. “I wanted to make a statement, that not everybody is using college basketball as a pit stop to go the next level,” he said. “That there’s more than money and endorsements. There’s championships that you’ve got to win at every level. That’s what I pride myself on. I’ve won a championship all the way from elementary to now. I pride myself on winning. That’s the biggest thing. That’s why I came back.” “Pride,” was also one of the first words Robinson used when asked about his decision to return for his junior year. He spent most of his first two seasons playing limited minutes behind the Morris twins, Markieff and Marcus. NBA scouts were telling Robinson he could be a firstround draft pick if he left.

Homers key 5-run 8th, Reds beat Tribe GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Todd Frazier and Juan Francisco are doing their best to make a case for a roster spot. Frazier, Francisco and Ryan LaMarre homered in a five-run eighth inning off reliever Dan Wheeler and the Cincinnati Reds rallied for a 6-5 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday. Frazier and Francisco are competing for the job of backing up veteran Scott Rolen. Frazier has minor league options left and Francisco doesn’t. But Frazier is a better defensive player and has hit a team-leading five home runs.

Francisco was slowed with a calf injury early in camp and was overweight but has hit four home runs, including two in the past two games. “They’ve had a lot of atbats,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “The final spots are the toughest to make if you have a good team. If you don’t have a good team, you don’t have as many options.” With one out, Frazier and Francisco homered. Willie Harris singled and scored on Ryan Ludwick’s double. LaMarre’s two-run homer capped the rally. Frazier has prepared for

Padres sign Luebke to contract extension PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — The San Diego Padres signed pitcher Cory Luebke to a contract extension through at least the 2015 season on Friday night. Luebke is a graduate of Marion Local High Luebke School.

The deal for Luebke, who was 6-10 with a 3.29 ERA in 46 games (17 starts) last season, includes team options for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Padres also agreed to long-term deals with center fielder Cameron Maybin and catcher Nick Hundley earlier this month.

whatever is decided. “I have put things together whether I go to Cincinnati or Louisville,” Frazier said. “They haven’t told me anything yet.” Carlos Santana and Asdrubal Cabrera homered off Reds opening day starter Johnny Cueto. Cueto went six innings, allowing two runs and four hits in his last start before opening day. “I’m ready for the season,” Cueto said. “I’ve learned from watching Aaron Harang and Edinson Volquez pitch on opening day. I feel like I’m the number one (starter) now, but I have to keep working.” Jeanmar Gomez left the game with a mildly strained hip after 3 2/3 innings. The Cleveland pitcher stretched for a return throw from shortstop Cabrera to complete a double play in the bottom of the fourth inning. He threw two balls to Chris Heisey before he was removed. “Gomez was doing very well until that mild hip sprain,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “We didn’t want to take any chances with him. He had a little trouble pushing off and looked un-

comfortable. This does not eliminate him from fifth spot consideration.” The fifth spot is between Gomez and Kevin Slowey, who allowed seven earned runs in five innings in a minor league game. Gomez is the third Indians pitcher to get hurt in two days. Derek Lowe left his start Thursday with a sore back and David Huff injured his hamstring later in that game. Wheeler found out earlier in the day that he made the Indians’ opening day roster. Notes: RHP Jairo Asencio reported to the Indians camp after he was acquired from Atlanta on Thursday. He will try to earn a bullpen spot by pitching Saturday and Monday. ... Carlos Santana hit his fourth home run of the spring for Cleveland. ... The Reds are down to 12 pitchers, including non roster LHP Jeff Francis, who will start against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. ... Former Ohio State running back Beanie Wells threw out the first pitch. The pitch from the Arizona Cardinals running back was caught by LaMarre, a University of Michigan graduate.

Versailles names Loramie McShay says assistant new head coach Browns can’t VERSAILLES — It will be a return to a more traditional offense for the Versailles High School football program with new coach Adam Miller, who was introduced Friday in a press conference at VHS. And when that tradition includes six state championships and 12 Final Four appearances, it would be hard to argue with it. Miller was an assistant coach at Fort Loramie last season. “I just want to continue the great tradition Versailles has in football,” Miller said. “I am excited and can’t wait to get started. I think most of the assistants will stay, although I have to confirm that with them.” Miller is replacing Bob Olwin, who retired earlier this year, before taking the job at Lake High School near Toledo. “We hate to see him go,” said Fort Loramie head coach Matt Burgbacher. “I know he only spent one year with us, but the kids really liked him, and I wish him nothing but the best. He’s excited, and I think Versailles got it right.” Olwin ran a five-receiver set on offense and led the Tigers to the sec-

Adam Miller ond round of the playoffs last fall. Miller will return to a more traditional I-formation look on offense. “We will run some shotgun, but a lot of it will be taking snaps under center,” Miller said. “We will do what fits our personnel best.” He has a good building block in junior-to-be quarterback Nick Campbell. As a sophomore last season, Campbell completed 175 of 286 passes for 2,705 yards and 33 touchdowns. “Nick is a great athlete,” Miller said. “We are going to take advantage of his talents. I think adding the running game is just going to compliment what he

can do throwing the ball and help him.” And Miller has no problem mixing things up on offense. “Ideally, I would like it to be a 60-40 run-pass ratio,” he said. “But, if we see teams stacking the line and overplaying the run, we can throw the ball more.” On defense, the Tigers will play a 4-3. “I don’t think it is all that different from what they have played here in the past,” Miller said. “We played a 4-3 when I was in high school and college and then at Ottawa-Glandorf.” Miller played his high football at school Delphos St. John’s and went on to play for Ohio Northern University. “In high school I played on offense, then in college, I played on defense,” he said. “I guess I would say I am more of a defensive-minded coach, although I have coached on both sides of the ball.” Miller has gained valuable experience as an assistant at OttawaGlandorf, Northmont, Versailles and Loramie. And he is already on staff at Versailles High School. “That is the thing that has calmed me down,” he

said. “I have gotten to know a lot of the players and have relationships with them. I am not going into this thing blind.” He is looking forward to getting back to his high school roots and coaching in the Midwest Athletic Conference. “Absolutely,” he said. “The MAC is the best small school league in the state of Ohio. I look forward to going out and facing the kind of competition you see in the MAC on a weekly basis.” He said to accomplish the ultimate goal you have to take it one step at a time. “I think everybody’s goal is to win the state championship,” he said. “But you need to set obtainable goals — not that the state championship isn’t obtainable — to get there. Our first goal is to win our first game. We want to do well in the MAC — and the biggest goal is to make it to the playoffs. “History indicates if you do that (make the playoffs) in the MAC, you are going to do pretty well unless you face another MAC team. I think MAC teams are like 47-1 in the first round of the playoffs against nonleague schools.”

pass on Tannehill AP EXCHANGE Lorain Morning Journal

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns, after not offering enough to the Rams for the second pick of this year’s draft so they could draft quarterback Robert Griffin III, could end up with the last laugh on April 26. ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay raved about Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill during a conference call Friday and said if he were running the Browns he “would have difficulty passing on him with that No. 4 pick.” “To me,” McShay said, “Andrew Luck is No. 1. There is a little drop-off between him and Robert Griffin III. But I don’t think the difference between Robert Griffin III and Tannehill is all that big.” McShay made the pitch for the Browns taking Tannehill even though in his most recent mock draft Wednesday he has them taking wide receiver Justin Blackmon from Oklahoma State. As McShay sees it the Browns could draft Tannehill with one pick instead of trading

three first-round picks as they allegedly offered for Griffin. Of course, if the Browns really do want Tannehill they could be left at the bus stop again, suitcase in hand, because the Dolphins could jump over them and trade with Minnesota for the third pick to use it on Tannehill. Or the Browns could decide Tannehill is just the flavor of the week and not worthy of a high draft pick. In that case, McShay said picking running back Trent Richardson with the fourth pick makes the most sense for the Browns. “I think there’s no question that Trent Richardson is a better talent (than Blackmon), and I think he has a chance to come in and become an immediate success,” McShay said. “There’s no part of his game that I look at that I don’t like. I think he can come in and become a huge difference maker in a league right now that is trending away from the running back position and more towards the passing attack and having these big wide receivers.”

SHS grad Van Horn leads WSU pitchers Sidney High graduate Jack Van Horn is developing into one of Wright State’s top pitchers this spring. He’s coming off a good couple of weeks for the Raiders. Right now, the righthander has appeared in 11 of the team’s 22 games, and has a 1.15 earned run average. He leads the team in ERA and appearances. Last Saurday, against Butler, Van Horn entered the game in the third inning with the Raiders trailing 8-6. He threw 32/3 scoreless innings, did not give up a hit, struck out five and issued just one walk. That set the stage for a Wright State rally that produced a 19-10 win, giving Van Horn the victory to put him 2-0 on the season. Then in a 7-1 win over Ohio University, he pitched one scoreless inning in a 7-1 win. During the previous week, he threw a scoreless inning against Ken-

No kindergarten grad this year MINSTER — The Minster Local Schools Board of Education heard about plans to change kindergarten graduation this year at a recent meeeting and heard about a recent waiver day held for teachers. Board members heard that Minster students graduating from kindergarten this year will have a different kind of program than in the past. The students this year will not have a traditional graduation but will have a kindergarten celebration to mark their accomplishment. Parents will be invited to the event and details are still being planned. The change in the kindergarten graduation is due to a need to place more importance on in-

structional time in the classroom, instead of the time spent on preparing and practicing for graduation. Letters will be sent to parents about the plans. Teachers held a waiver day March 7 and spent the morning with fellow teachers in their grade levels. The teachers discussed new state standards and resources they need. Teacher evaluations are under way in the school system. There will be 31 final evaluation conferences with 31 licensed staff. They will discuss student achievement and self-selected professional development goals. Minster High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America students were recognized during the meeting for their partic-

ipation in the FCCLA regional rally held in Fort Recovery on March 3. Among students recognized at the event and their award were Theresa Barhorst, State Degree; Theresa Barhorst, Allison Jutte, Brittany Mumaw and Cassie Jutte, gold award in the Outstanding Chapter category; and Brittany Sherman, Kaitlyn Lehmkuhl, Dana Jutte, Allison Jutte, Lauren Jutte, Katie Thieman, Megan Hanenkratt and Megan Timmerman, who were on the parliamentary procedure team, which won the gold award and will be going to state competition. Other students participating were Shelby Wente, Samantha Osterfeld and Kristin Hilgefort. The board also recognized Minster’s first-

team student athletes who were honored at a winter sports banquet on March 5. They are Tara Clune, Kayla Wuebker and Adam Niemeyer. The board took personnel action during the meeting. The board approved Steve Blackburn for a limited one-year contract as a substitute teacher and rescinded the classified contract of Mike Short as a girls assistant softball coach. The board approved the following classified, limited, one-year contracts for Mike Wiss, recreation field manager; Mike Ripploh, groundskeeper as needed; and George Wiss, groundskeeper as needed. The board approved Laurissa Dalrymple, Cindy Nelson and John Huelsman as volunteers for girls track.
