No more quarters Universities switch to semesters

For a full weather report, turn to Page 12A.


DAYTON (AP) — Seventeen Ohio universities and community colleges now on the quarter system are ready to switch to a semester-based calendar in a move that officials say will help students transfer more easily between schools. The schools making the

switch from 10-week quarters to two-semester calendars have spent more than $26 million over the past four years to prepare for the transition, the Dayton Daily News reported ( ). Ohio State University, Ohio University and the University of Cincinnati are some of the

largest universities affected. Some of the smaller schools include Wright State University and Sinclair and Clark State community colleges. “It’s been, I think, a really tremendous effort, and a tremendous effort during very difficult economic times in the state of Ohio,” said Wright

Urbana woman murdered URBANA (AP) — Five people have been arrested in connection with the death of an Ohio woman who police said was stabbed, suffocated and dismembered in a bathtub before some of her remains were taken to Kentucky. Jessica Rae Sacco, 21, was found dead Friday in her apartment in Urbana, about 40 miles northwest of Columbus. Authorities arrested five people Saturday, including a 25-year-old man who lived at the same address as Sacco. He’s charged with murder, assault, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. “We believe that he stabbed

her, and then subsequently suffocated her by placing a bag over her head,” police Chief Matt Lingrell told WDTN-TV. The station said police described the murder suspect as Sacco’s on-againoff-again boyfriend. His bond is more than $530,000. He was arrested in Hamilton along with a man and woman from Fenton, Mich. Felony charges against the Michigan couple and a man and woman from Urbana allege they failed to intervene during the killing or helped to hide it, police said. Lingrell questioned why people who were present dur-

ing and after the killing wouldn’t remove themselves from the situation. “For whatever reason, these people either wanted to stay or chose to stay,” he said. An autopsy on Sacco was done over the weekend, and police said they believe she was killed about a week before she was found, possibly on March 22. Police believe the main suspect acted alone in killing Sacco and then received help from the Fenton man to move and dismember the body. Police allege that the Fenton couple helped transport See MURDER/Page 6A

3 winners, 100 million losers RED BUD, Ill. (AP) — The Mega Millions winners — at least three of them — stayed out of sight. The losers, who could number 100 million, had plenty to say Saturday about losing out on the world’s largest-ever lottery jackpot and their dashed dreams of colossal wealth. Journalists descended on convenience stores in Illinois and Maryland, and lottery officials there and in Kansas proudly proclaimed they sold winning tickets in the $640 million world record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot. The winners will earn $213 million before taxes. Three other ticket holders became millionaires. But on the street, online and outside the stores where the winners had purchased their tickets, Americans grumbled about hopes that See LOTTERY/Page 7A

Apostle Peter leads prayer breakfast More than 200 people were in attendance for the ninth annual Community Prayer Breakfast on Saturday. The communitywide, nondenominational event was held at Christian Academy and allowed an opportunity for all in Shelby County to come together in fellowship and unified prayer. There was a complimentary breakfast served before the event. According to organizer Mary Smith, there were roughly 25 volunteers who helped with the event. Following the meal, special guest Dr. Ken Keene, an ordained minister for more than 30 years, spoke before the group. According to Smith, Keene portrayed

the Apostle Peter and spoke about “just coming to Christ, all of us coming to Christ and that all can be forgiven.” Keene is senior pastor at Trinity Assembly of God in Columbus. “I think it was larger than other years,” said Smith. “It was a very enthusiastic crowd. This year the tickets were free to all who wanted to attend then there was a love offering at the end.” Prayer Breakfast organizers include Mary Smith, Pastor Jane Catherine Madden, Toal and Jeff Raible.

BY JAKE COYLE Associated Press The slime came fast and furious at the 25th annual Kids’ Choice Awards, where even celebrities get doused in bucket loads of green gunk. Host Will Smith opened the 25th annual Kids’ Choice Awards promising a record amount of slime, and, halfway through the show, he was delivering. Soon after the first rows of fans were covered in slime, so were Halle Berry and “Glee” star Chris Colfer. “No one is safe from the slime!” screamed Smith. “You have to earn the slime! It’s an honor.” Smith started the show with an elaborate, digitally-animated skydive from Nickelodeon’s trademark blimp. Smith was then hoisted from the rafters to the stage of the Galen Center at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where thousands of glowstick waving fans cheered him on — including first lady Michelle Obama.

Columbus logged record highs for individual days six times and set its all-time high temperature for March at 85 degrees. Cincinnati and Dayton had record highs on five individual days.

Zoo’s Reptile House gets upgrade spot on the zoo grounds ever since founder Andrew Erkenbrecher welcomed the first visitors in 1875. Today it stands as the nation’s oldest zoo building that has continuously housed animals, the zoo says. Which isn’t so surprising, perhaps, given that Cincinnati has the country’s secondoldest zoo, after Philadelphia. A renovation of the structure began this year thanks to a $408,886 matching grant from the National Park Service’s Save America’s Treasures program. The zoo is contributing an equal amount of privately raised dollars, bringing the total project cost to $817,772. The building will remain open while crews do exterior work, including upgrades to the roof, mortar, windows and vents, as well as new gar-

QUARTERS “They’re upset that they’re caught in the middle,” said Wright State senior Nicholas Port, who has served on the student government’s semester transition committee. “They think it’s just a hassle, and they might not recognize the benefits now.” Schools have said students will not be delayed in earning degrees or have to spend more money if they develop a plan with their advisers to carry them through the transition. About 250,000 students are finishing the final academic quarter at the schools changing to semesters, which usually last 15 weeks plus exams. “We have promised our students that we’re going to make sure this does not lengthen their time to degree, it does not cost them any more,” Hopkins said. Students will need to start their school year earlier under the semester system, which raises

concerns for some officials. “Community colleges tend to have a lot of students who sign up at the last minute,” said Martha Crawmer, Clark State’s dean of arts and sciences and co-chair of its semester conversion committee. “Our biggest concern, our worry is that students are so accustomed to starting after Labor Day, but now we’re starting Aug. 20,” she said. The colleges and universities have spent money on extra advising, new technology, advertising and course revisions. “When we go into the next fall, we’ll feel really good that we’re helping people thrive in the 21st century,” Wright said. Sinclair expects to spend slightly less than the $1.8 million it budgeted, said Allison Rhea, project director for the office of semester transition. She said classes have been combined for semesters, and students overall will end up tak-

ing fewer courses. Ohio State paid about $12.6 million, mostly for new technology, while preparing for the transition, spokeswoman Shelly Hoffman said. Although three Ohio community colleges that switched to semesters since 2000 saw a decrease in enrollment the year after the conversion, that drop was attributed to students finishing their degrees before the switch. “We don’t really anticipate any major effect in enrollment,” Crawmer said of Clark State. Terra Community College in Fremont converted to semesters in 2006. Mary McCue, Terra’s director of marketing and auxiliary services, said students seem to enjoy having the academic calendar more aligned with the kindergarten to 12th-grade schedule. “I can’t think of one reason why anyone would not want to do the conversion,” McCue said.

AP Photo/Edwards Funeral Home, File

IN THIS Feb. 14, 2011, photo provided by Edwards Funeral Home in Columbus, Jeff Edwards stands next to an alkaline hydrolysis device that uses lye and heat to dissolve a body as an alternative to burial or cremation. The Ohio funeral home was blocked from dissolving bodies using lye and heat and announced Sunday that it has joined a funeral directors’ group in pushing for the state to legalize the process. Edwards was the first U.S. funeral business known to publicly offer alkaline hydrolysis and used the method in 19 cases before the state Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors and the Ohio Department of Health stepped in with permit restrictions that impeded use of the process.

Ruling blocks Ohio facility from liquefying bodies COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio funeral home that was blocked from dissolving bodies using lye and heat has joined a funeral directors’ group in pushing for the state to legalize the process. Under a bill in the Ohio House, the state would recognize alkaline hydrolysis as a separate legal, regulated form of disposition, rather than lumping it in with traditional cremation, as some states have done. The bill was introduced in March after a judge’s ruling blocked Edwards Funeral Service in Columbus from using the process, which involves the corrosive chemical lye, heat and sometimes extra pressure in a large metal cylinder. The method turn remains into a liquid that could be poured down a drain and a dry bone residue that can be given to relatives or buried. Edwards was the first U.S. funeral business known to publicly offer alka-

line hydrolysis and used the method in 19 cases before the state Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors and the Ohio Department of Health stepped in with permit restrictions. They didn’t believe the method was legal under state law. Edwards filed a lawsuit asking the court to block enforcement of the restrictions, alleging the groups didn’t have the authority to keep the funeral home from using the procedure. A Franklin County judge disagreed, saying in March that the board and the department have the authority to determine which disposition methods are allowed but that officials might want to consider whether to change existing rules to allow for the use of alkaline hydrolysis. Funeral home owner Jeff Edwards said he doesn’t plan to appeal the decision but instead will join efforts to get the new bill approved.

some of the remains to Covington, Ky., about 90 miles away. They said they found evidence there but wouldn’t elaborate. Citing the “sensitive nature” of the case and the ongoing investigation, police refused to say what evidence has been collected, what the suspects have told authorities or what the motive for the killing might be. The three suspects arrested in Hamilton are due in court Monday to determine whether they’ll be sent to Urbana. The pair from Urbana is due in court here Monday morning.

dens. That’s scheduled for completion by June. The building will be closed for interior work next winter. “It will be a gem, not just for lovers of animals and lovers of flowers and plant life, but also for lovers of architecture,” said Martin Rahe, treasurer of the zoo board and a Cincinnati Preservation Association board member. Victorian-era visitors knew it as the Monkey House. It was built 137 years ago for $14,000. The preservation association’s executive director, Paul Muller, describes the building’s style as “eclectic Moorish.” When the zoo was founded, “The reason they did these exotic styles of architecture is they were bringing the world to your neighborhood,” Muller said.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Erik Keyster works in an old, round building that attracts a lot of visitors. “People like to see things that are deadly, and people like to see things that are big, and people like to see things that are colorful,” said Keyster, team leader of reptiles and amphibians at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. So people trek into Keyster’s workplace, the Reptile House, where they can see about 75 specimens, including Chinese alligators (deadly), green tree pythons (colorful), and a king cobra (big and deadly). Here’s what many visitors might not realize: The building itself is worth seeing, too. It hasn’t always been called the Reptile House — more about that later — but it has occupied a

Dems sharpen attack as GOP rallies behind Romney


Still more mandates WASHINGTON (AP) — The individual insurance requirement that the Supreme Court is reviewing isn’t the first federal mandate involving health care. There’s a Medicare payroll tax on workers and employers, for example, and a requirement that hospitals provide free emergency services to indigents. Health care is full of government dictates, some arguably more intrusive than President Barack Obama’s overhaul law. It’s a wrinkle that has caught the attention of the justices. Most of the mandates apply to providers such as hospitals and insurers. For example, a 1990s law requires health plans to cover at least a 48-hour hospital stay for new mothers and their babies. Such requirements protect some consumers while indirectly raising costs for others.

Outage halts VISA charges WASHINGTON (AP) — A technical problem affecting the Visa network barred some people around the United States from using their credit and debit cards for about 45 minutes on Sunday, the company said. The outage was caused by a recent update Visa has made to its system, said Visa Inc. spokeswoman Sandra Chu. She said Visa had trouble processing some transactions as a result, but the system is operating normally now. Chu said the problem Sunday was unrelated to the security breach potentially affecting Visa and MasterCard customers that was reported Friday by credit card processor Global Payments Inc.

Earl Scruggs remembered NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Earl Scruggs was remembered Sunday as an influential, helpful and humble banjo player who put his own trademark on bluegrass music. Some 2,300 mourners attended Scruggs’ public funeral at the Ryman Auditorium, where he played his songs for years on the Grand Ole Opry country music show and recorded his final album. The Academy of Country Music planned a tribute Sunday night at its annual awards show in Las Vegas. The pioneering banjo player and his pickin’ partner Lester Flatt, a guitarist, teamed for 20 years to become the most famous duo in bluegrass history.


‘Batman’ escapes ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland pulled over a motorist dressed as Batman, but the caped crusader escaped without a ticket. Authorities pulled over the driver of a black Lamborghini with Batman logo tags last week in Silver Spring outside Washington. The driver was dressed as the Dark Knight — cape, mask and all. Police, however, weren't impressed and wanted to talk to him about his superhero logo license plate, which isn't an approved plate in the state. The driver, who goes by Lenny B. Robinson when not dressed as a superhero to visit sick children at hospitals, was able to show them a proper license plate for the car.

AUNG SAN Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy supporters cheer after the party's announcement outside the party headquarters in Yangon, Myanmar, Sunday. Supporters of Suu Kyi erupted in euphoric cheers Sunday after her party announced that she had won a parliamentary seat in the landmark election, setting the stage for her to take public office for the first time.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — President Barack Obama’s administration launched a multi-pronged assault on Mitt Romney’s values and foreign policy credentials Sunday, while a fresh set of prominent Republicans rallied behind the GOP front-runner as the oddson nominee, further signs the general election is overtaking the primary season. A defiant Rick Santorum outlined plans to leave Wisconsin the day before the state’s contest Tuesday, an indication that the conservative favorite may be in retreat, his chances to stop Romney rapidly dwindling. “I think the chances are overwhelming that (Romney) will be our nominee,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” ”It seems to me we’re in the final phases of wrapping up this nomination. And most of the members of the Senate Republican conference are either supporting him, or they have the view that I do, that it’s time to turn our attention to the fall campaign and begin to make the case against the president of the United States.” Both Secretary of State

Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden went after Romney Sunday, underscoring the belief inside Obama’s Chicago re-election headquarters that Romney will — sooner than later — secure the right to face Obama this fall. Romney largely agreed, telling a Madison, Wis., crowd Sunday night that the nominee “will probably be me.” The Obama officials’ involvement comes as both sides sharpen their general election strategy, perhaps weeks before the GOP contest formally comes to an end. “I think Gov. Romney’s a little out of touch,” Biden told CBS’ “Face the Nation” in an interview broadcast Sunday. “I can’t remember a presidential candidate in the recent past who seems not to understand, by what he says, what ordinary middle-class people are thinking about and are concerned about.” The line of attack is likely to play prominently in the Obama campaign’s general election narrative. While Obama is a millionaire, Romney would be among the nation’s wealthiest presidents ever elected. And he’s opened himself to criticism through a series of missteps.

Mexican agents probe Myanmar’s Suu Kyi family in 3 ritual murders

reported winning historic vote YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — She struggled for a free Myanmar for a quarter-century, much of it spent locked away under house arrest. Now, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate whose nonviolent campaign for democracy at home transformed her into a global icon is on the verge of ascending to public office for the first time. Aung San Suu Kyi, 66, was elected to parliament Sunday in a historic victory buffeted by the jubilant cheers of supporters who hope her triumph will mark a major turning point in a nation still emerging from a ruthless era of military rule. If confirmed, the election win will also mark an astonishing reversal of fortune for a woman who became one of the world’s most prominent prisoners of conscience. When she was finally released in late 2010, just after a vote her party boycotted that was deemed neither free nor fair,

few could have imagined she would make the leap from democracy advocate to elected official in less than 17 months, opening the way for a potential presidential run in 2015. But Myanmar has changed dramatically over that time. The junta finally ceded power last year, and although many of its leaders merely swapped their military uniforms for civilian suits, they went on to stun even their staunchest critics by releasing political prisoners, signing cease-fires with rebels, relaxing press censorship and opening a direct dialogue with Suu Kyi — who they tried to silence for decades. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton congratulated Myanmar for holding the poll. Speaking at a news conference in Istanbul, Turkey, she said Washington was committed to supporting the nation’s reform effort.

NACOZARI, Mexico (AP) — It was a family people took pity on, one the government and church helped with free food, used clothes, and farm animals. The men were known as trash pickers. Some of the women were suspected of prostitution. Mexican prosecutors are investigating the poor family living in shacks outside a small town near the U.S. border as alleged members of a cult that sacrificed two 10year-old boys and a 55-yearold woman to Santa Muerte, or Saint Death, a figure adored mostly by outlaws but whose popularity is growing across Mexico and among Hispanics in the United States. The killings have shocked the copper mining village of Nacozari, on the edge of the Sierra Madre, and may be the first ritual sacrifices linked to the popular saint condemned by the Roman Catholic Church. Known as “flaquita,” or “the skinny one,” the figure known as Saint Death is portrayed as a skeleton wearing a hooded robe and holding a scythe, much like the Grim Reaper. Authorities say the throats

LOTTERY were raised, and then vanished. And they mused about what they would have done with the money. “What do I do with this useless lottery ticket now?” Laurel Ashton Brooks of Greensboro, N.C., asked on Twitter. As the jackpot got bigger by the hour on Thursday and Friday, Americans had snapped up tickets while dreaming of quitting jobs, paying off debts, building hospitals, buying an island. On Saturday, they took to Twitter and Facebook to bemoan their lost, razor-thin chance at millions. “I knew that when I bought the ticket, that I wouldn’t win. But I did it anyhow,” said Sean Flaherty, a video game tester in New York City. “The whole notion of ‘what if ’ still has some currency with me.” Even President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign tapped into the widespread lottery letdown. It sent a fundraising email with the subject “Jackpot” that began: “Yeah, we didn’t either. So we’re still at.” All told, Americans spent nearly $1.5 billion for a

and the wrists of the victims were cut with knives and axes, and their blood was spread on a Santa Muerte altar. Their bodies were then buried near the shacks where the alleged cult members lived. “We never knew they were part of a Santa Muerte cult,” said Jorge Sanchez Castillo, a 54-year-old hotel owner who has a corn field next to the house of the woman believed to lead the group. “This has been a tragic thing for all of us.” Jose Larrinaga, spokesman for the Sonora Attorney General’s Office, said 44-year-old Silvia Meraz was the cult leader, and seven people related to her, were detained: her boyfriend Eduardo Sanchez, father, son, three daughters and a daughter-inlaw. No formal charges have been filed pending further investigation. “They thought that by offering the blood, they would be protected for some time,” Larrinaga said. “According to them, Santa Muerte was going to tell them where the money was. They all identify themselves as fanatic followers of Santa Muerte.”

From Page 1 chance to hit the jackpot, which amounts to a $462 million lump sum and around $347 million after federal tax withholding. With the jackpot odds at 1 in 176 million, it would cost $176 million to buy up every combination. Under that scenario, the strategy would win $171 million less if your state also withholds taxes. Illinois’ winner used a quick pick — an automatically generated set of digits — to select the winning numbers at a convenience store in the small town of Red Bud, south of St. Louis, Illinois Lottery spokesman Mike Lang said. The winning numbers also were purchased at a 7-Eleven in Milford Mill, Md., north of Baltimore, and somewhere in northeast Kansas. “It’s just unbelievable. Everyone is wanting to know who it is,” said Denise Metzger, manager of the MotoMart where Illinois’ winning ticket was sold. “All day yesterday I was selling tickets and I was hoping someone from Red Bud would win. Never in my wildest dreams did I think

this. I’m just tickled pink,” added Metzger, whose store will receive $500,000 for selling the winning ticket, lottery officials said. Paramedic Dan Parrott walked away from the store with $5 in winnings after checking numbers on his $40 worth of tickets. That won’t pay for the new house, new car and the new ambulances he’d decided the jackpot would help him buy in this farming community of 3,700 about 40 miles south of St. Louis. “I’d love to have all that money, but with all of that money comes responsibility,” he said outside the store. “But it’d still be awesome.” James Sitzes emerged from the MotoMart where his check of his six plays flopped. “I bought them at the right place,” he shrugged. “I just didn’t have the right numbers.” “I’ve been thinking for years what I’d do with all that money,” said Sitzes, 70. He’d pay off the house, invest the rest and give away his small plating shop. In Maryland, TV cameras

descended upon the 7-Eleven where the state’s winning ticket was purchased. The harried manager repeatedly said “No interviews” to reporters pressing for details as customers pushed through the media crush for their morning coffee. Nyeri Murphy, holding two scratch-off tickets, said she normally plays Powerball but drove to a nearby county to buy $70 worth of Mega Millions tickets this week. “I should have bought them here,” she said. Maryland does not require lottery winners to be identified; the Mega Millions winner can claim the prize anonymously. The store will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, which was purchased Friday night. The third winning ticket was purchased in northeast Kansas, but no other information would be released by the Kansas Lottery until the winner comes forward, spokeswoman Cara S. Sloan-Ramos said. The Kansas location that sold the ticket will receive $10,000.

Flemings celebrate golden date

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-4th District, addresses the congregation at a service recently at the First Baptist Church in Sidney. His appearance was part of the 2012 Shelby County Community Lenten Services Series in which prominent members of the education, business, economic and government communities discuss their faith and what kind of an impact faith has on their work. Also speaking at this service was Sidney Vice Mayor Mardie Milligan.

Gardeners plan fair show During its recent meeting, members of the Gardeners Rainbow learned that the theme of the 2012 Shelby County Fair flower show will be “Down on the Farm.” It was announced by flower show cochairwoman Lynn Cook. Cohostess Selma Geib opened the meeting by describing her silk flower arrangement in shades of white and gold with tall curly willow accents. Leprechauns and shamrocks cut from paper napkins decorated the tables. Cohostess Carole Carruthers served red velvet cake with confetti icing and Hershey’s Kisses in spring, pastel shades. Carruthers brought moonflower seed pods to share with the group. She explained that moonflowers, a close relative of morning glories and datura, bloom at night and attract moths for pollination. Moonflowers are white, fragrant and vining. They prefer warm temperatures and sunny exposures. Seeds should be soaked or scarified be-

fore planting. Cook distributed copies of the sub-classes for the novice, advanced, and junior classes at the fair. Jackie Thoma, Mary Lou Overton, and Sandy Fletcher are on the Fair Flower Show committee. Patt Van Skiver and Fletcher will be cochairwomen of the 2013 show. Marcia Grigg reported that the annual spring flower sale will take place on the opening day of the Farmer’s Market, May 26. Ginny Shaw informed members that the theme for this year’s Applefest Flower Show is “Harvest Splendor.” The Applefest committee comprises Overton and Fletcher. The show will take place Sept. 8-9. Nancy Morgan informed members that the design study scheduled for May 3 at the county extension building will include a rising form design and an inverted T design to replace the parallel design. This change was made to avoid the extensive use of kenzan. Morgan distributed hand-outs to illustrate the basic

principles of each design, the materials that designers need to take, and a registration form to mail in with a $10 fee. Morgan volunteered to provide kenzan, containers, and other supplies to those who wish to attend this seminar which is open to the public. Contact Morgan at 4979373 for registration information. Grigg offered two horticultural tips for March: • To get rid of black spot or mildew on plants, dissolve an aspirin in one gallon of water. Spray affected areas. • To plant fragile starts or seeds, place a brown paper bag (a lunch bag cut down) inside a plastic berry basket. Plant seeds or fragile, young plants in potting soil inside the bag. When the soil has warmed up, plant the entire basket outdoors. The roots will grow through the basket. Nancy Russell spoke on “Smart Solutions for Your Home and Garden.” She gave examples of how to reuse and recycle products to save money and the environment.

Ross talks Reds ball at recent Kiwanis meeting Dave Ross was the guest speaker at the March 21 meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Sidney. Ross recently returned from his annual baseball spring training trip to Arizona. Rather than sit in the press box, Ross likes to sit in the crowd, he told Kiwanis members, to talk with other fans and get an idea of what other people are thinking. Commenting on the weather, Ross said that many days it was actually warmer in Sidney than in Phoenix, a rarity at this time of year. Besides covering the Reds, Ross also kept tabs on a couple of ballplayers with local ties, Jared Hoying, of Fort Loramie, a prospect in the Texas Rangers farm system, and Corey Luebke, of Osgood. Luebke is the probable number two starter in the San Diego Padres pitching rotation. Ross gave his opinion

of several of the Reds expected starters. Two proven all-stars in Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto anchor the right side of the infield. Ross said that Zack Cozart at shortstop appears to be the “real deal.” Scott Rolen at third is the clubhouse leader and a vital cog. He appears to be recovering nicely from last year’s surgery, according to Ross. Left field appears to be a little unsettled with Ryan Ludwick, Todd Frazier and Chris Heisey’s battling for playing time. Drew Stubbs in center and Jay Bruce in right appear solid. Right handers appear to dominate the starting rotation: Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo, Homer Bailey and Mike Leake. Possible left handers are Aroldis Chapman and Jeff Francis. Prior to Ross’s remarks, President Heather Pollard called

the meeting to order. The invocation was given by Ralph Bornhorst and the group was lead in song by Bornhorst, accompanied by DiAnne Karas on the piano. Karen Tennery gave the lenten devotional and Bornhorst led the fund-and-games activities which involved answering various trivia questions regarding the wives of the first four presidents. Tennery won the Marty Brennaman autographed baseball which was donated by guest speaker Ross. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. The Sidney Kiwanis meets at noon every Wednesday at the Sidney Moose Lodge. This club is always looking for new members who want to serve their community. For information, call John Coffield at 7104944 or visit a meeting.

Pond clinic set for April 10 BY LYNDA ADAMS Education Coordinator Shelby Soil & Water Conservation District

Conservation in the county

Annual Tri-County Pond Clinic The public is invited to the Annual TriCounty Pond Clinic, April 10, at 6:30 p.m. Ruth and Forest Pence, 4443 Stoker Road, Houston, are the hosts for the clinic. Sponsored by the Shelby, Darke and Miami Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the annual clinic gives pond owners as well as those considering building a pond, a chance to converse with the experts. Our regular speaker from The Ohio State University Extension, William Lynch is now retired. Eugene Braig has taken his place. Mr. Braig has extensive experience in dealing with the problems in Lake Erie as well as small lakes and

ponds. His talk should be enlightening and inTimothy formative. Rourke, Wildlife Officer for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, will discuss nuisance wildlife concerns around ponds. The free clinic will be held outdoors if the weather permits and will last into the evening until all questions have been answered. Ponds require regular maintenance, usually beginning in early spring and continuing throughout summer and fall. Simple maintenance such as checking for debris plugging outlets, groundhog

and muskrat burrows in dikes and trees and brush growing in places where they shouldn’t is a good start. Check for algae beginning to grow. Given the unusually warm winter, what kind of problems can be expected in ponds this summer? Will vegetation control need to be started earlier this year? Because ponds in this area didn’t freeze over this year, there have been no reported winter fish kills, but that doesn’t mean monitoring fish populations should be ignored. Plan to attend the clinic even if you’ve been to it before. New topics and different twists on traditional problems are often brought up by attendees. Bring your questions. If you have a particular weed problem and can’t identify it, come early and bring a sample. Refreshments will be provided. Bring lawn chairs and dress for the weather.

Seedling Sale The District still has seedlings available from our seedling sale. We are currently taking orders for hardwoods, conifers, and small trees and shrubs for wildlife habitat. Hardwood species include: White Oak, Red Oak, Thornless Honey Locust, Sugar Maple, Red Maple, and River Birch. The following conifer species are available: Norway Spruce, Blue Spruce, Black Hills Spruce, White Pine, Scotch Pine, American Arborvitae and Bald Cypress. Small trees and shrub species include: Red Bud, Common Lilac, Crabapple, Sargent Black Chokeberry,and White Flowering Dogwood. Call (937) 4926520, ext. 3 to find out what is still available. An order form can be mailed or emailed to you. Order forms are also available on our website at and on Facebook.

April is National Garden Month. Here are some suggested gardening activities to keep you busy this time of year. Lawn care • Remove leaves, twigs, and other debris. • Mow as needed-the first cut should be slightly lower than normal. • Perform a soil test (OSU Extension can help you find a lab). • Reseed bare spots with high quality seed. • Apply a pre-emergent crabgrass control. If you plan to reseed bare spots, siduron is the only crabgrass preventer that can be used. Make an application of fertilizer at a rate of one pound of nitrogen per 1000 square feetusing a crabgrass control-fertilizer blend can save time and energy. • If moles are a problem, trap them now before they reproduce. • As the soil warms, grubs will begin returning to the root zone. Most of the damage will

• Start a home orchard spray schedule, following the directions on the container. To protect the bees, do not use insecticides while the fruit trees are in bloom. • Uncover roses as soon as new growth appears, but be ready to protect them from late frosts. Prune and begin to fertilize. • Plant bare-root stock as soon as possible and before new growth begins. • Prune spring flowering shrubs like forsythia after the blooms have dropped. Flowers, vegetables, small fruits • If a handful of soil crumbles when you squeeze it, prepare your garden soil. If it forms a solid ball, let it dry more. • Plant cool-season vegetables (cabbage family, lettuce, spinach, peas) as soon as the soil is ready. Plant potatoes now also. • Start seeds of warm-season vegetables and flowers indoors. • Plant/transplant asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, and brambles. • Remove winter mulch from strawberries when new growth begins, but be ready to protect the plants from late frosts. • Prune out weak, diseased, or dead parts of brambles and grape vines.

Blood donors hit honor mark FORT LORAMIE — Jack and Millie West, of Sidney, have two passions: blood donating and cruising. Holding his latest Community Blood Center (CBC) T-shirt from the St. Michael’s Blood Drive in Fort Loramie Feb. 21 Jack said, “The first time I wear this will be on the ship. I don’t wear them ahead of time.” But in a rare interruption of her strongminded husband, Millie countered, “I’ll wear mine right now. I’m proud to be a blood donor!” Jack countered back, “Too cold!” And Millie acquiesced a bit, saying, “That’s true, I have to have long-sleeves,” but she has made her point. After making her 80 LTD milestone donation, and receiving a special “10 Gallon Blood Donor” plaque from CBC Shelby County Representative Kathy Pleiman that matches the one Jack received 16 donations ago, Millie is ready to let the world know. As dedicated donors and cruise ship travelers, letting the world know about the gift of life is a mission these retirees take seriously. They wear their CBC blood donor T-shirts proudly and prominently on jaunts from St. Maarten to Nassau, or St. Thomas to San Juan. “People stop and comment about them,” said Millie. Jack believes it influences their fellow travelers and others they meet to consider blood donations. “It’s great for any place in the world where they can do this,” he said. Jack proudly talks about “giving his first pint” back in 1951 while serving in the Air Force and stationed in Port-

land, Maine. He is only four donations shy of reaching the 100 LTD but today was deferred due to low hematocrit level. He kept a nervous eye toward the donor area as Millie prepared to donate, hoping she could reach her milestone. Neither knew that Pleiman had the 10 gallon plaque waiting. It left Millie speechless. “I was real surprised,” she said, collecting herself. “I wasn’t expecting that!” “I can’t remember what mine looks like,” mused Jack. “This is probably the prettiest!” Millie remembers making her first donation many years ago when she worked for Nationwide Insurance. The company drove volunteers to the collection site, bought them lunch afterwards and gave them the rest of the day off. Finding time to donate since hasn’t always been as convenient. Millie retired after 28 years of teaching middle school. The cruising hasn’t always been smooth sailing. They can re-

Her favorite cruise took them to Belize where they toured the Mayan ruins. (Jack fondly remembers the cruise that was the best bargain!). In September they will celebrate their 48th wedding anniversary. Hopefully by then Jack will be closing in another important number, 100 LTD (“It’s just a good round number!” he said) and more people in exotic places will be asking Jack and Millie, “Where did you get that T-shirt?” Blood donation requirements: Donors are

What do you suggest I should do? — Cindy, Cedar Rapids, Iowa CINDY: It’s normal for teens, at times, to intelligently discuss the subject of sex, but when sex is constantly on one’s mind, something is amiss. As with drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, and overeating, sex can be addictive. Make your boyfriend aware that you will no longer waste your time discussing sex with him. If he doesn’t change his ways immediately, drop him and look for another boyfriend who has something else to discuss besides sex.

thinks about and talks about is sex. Once in a while I don’t mind an intelligent discussion on the subject but not every moment I’m with him. Lately, he has had the gall to ask me if I was a virgin. When I told him that it was none of his business, he became defiant and said that I wasn’t a virgin or I would have told him so. I know that his ultimate goal is to have sex with me but deep down he knows that it will never happen. But he keeps bringing up the subject. If there were some way I could get this guy to broaden his “one-

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Years ago I had a scablike growth on my left lower leg. A dermatologist diagnosed it as sarcoidosis. I am now 63, and sarcoidosis has appeared in other places. My mammogram was abnormal and was found to be sarcoidosis. My lungs are affected with it, and I am on a pulmonary inhaler. Now it affects my eyes, and I take drops that have prednisone. Is this a life-long thing? — L.E. ANSWER: Sarcoidosis isn’t a common illness, but it’s not exactly a rare bird, either. For every group of 100,000 people, about 20 cases of sarcoidosis are found. Granulomas are characteristic of this disorder. They’re mounds of heaped-up dead cells that have been fighting a body invader, like a bacterium, fungus, foreign body or any substance that the body detects as a threat to health. The cause of granuloma formation in sarcoidosis and the ill-

ness itself has not be discovered, a fact that hampers treatment. Sarcoidosis affects any body organ and tissue. The most-targeted areas are the lungs, skin and eyes. The fact that you are taking only an inhaled medicine for your lungs is a sign that lung involvement is under control. Eyedrops that contain cortisone (prednisone) treat the eyes, and cortisone-containing creams treat the skin. What happens to a sarcoidosis patient is unpredictable. About 50 percent have a remission of their illness. The rest have to battle it, sometimes on a lifelong basis. Apparently you are one of these people. On the bright side, the treatment you’re getting has kept a lid on this malady, as it has for many patients. It has allowed to you have a productive life in spite of the diagnosis. You and I have every reason to believe that your battle will be successful well into old age.

I have been looking for — have been single for a few kind, even-tempered,

well-spoken, etc. He has hinted at marriage, and I’m terrified because I’m afraid that I will “lose” myself. I enjoy my life the way it is, but I’m worried that eventually I will want a partnership, and this would be the man for me. The idea of going to the next level makes me want to end the relationship. I’m afraid if I can’t commit to this man, certainly no other man would have a chance. How do I know

if I’m better off single where things are good, or take a chance on another marriage where things may not turn out so well? Is marriage for everyone? — HAPPILY SINGLE … FOR NOW DEAR HAPPILY SINGLE … FOR NOW: Because of the number of Americans who are divorced or living together without marriage, I would have to say no, marriage isn’t for everyone. But when you get it right and have built a

strong, loving, mutually respectful partnership, nothing can beat it. Have you learned from the failure of your two marriages? If so, then you have matured from the experience. If you’re planning to have children, it is to their advantage to live in a two-parent household. That said, if you truly feel you are happier being single, then single you should remain because there are no guarantees that a marriage will be

successful. Marriage can only be as strong and lasting as the couple entering into it are determined it will be. And that takes love, understanding, empathy and willingness to compromise.

BASEBALL Reds trade for pitcher GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds traded third baseman Juan Francisco to the Atlanta Braves for right-hander J.J. Hoover on Sunday. The 24year-old Francisco was competing with Todd Frazier to back up Scott Rolen. Francisco was signed by the Reds in 2004 and was out of minor league options. Francisco has played 81 games in the majors. The lefty hitter has a career batting average of .284. Hoover was drafted by Atlanta in 2008. The Reds will assign him to Triple-A Louisville. Hoover split last season between Triple-A and Double-A as a starter and reliever. The 24year-old was a combined 3-6 with a 2.64 ERA.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We’re still working on being on the same page. But I think I did well because I did everything they wanted me to do this spring and look what I got now, opening day.” — Former Red Edinson Volquez, after being picked as the opening day starter for the San Diego Padres

ON THIS DATE IN 1984 — Georgetown, led by junior center Patrick Ewing and freshman forward Reggie Williams, beats Houston 84-75 to win the NCAA championship in Seattle. Houston becomes the second team to lose in two consecutive finals. 1993 — Cleveland's Mark Price falls one free throw short of tying an NBA record in a 114113 loss to Charlotte. Price makes his first six foul shots of the game to give him 77 in a row, but misses the second of a two-shot foul in the fourth quarter, leaving intact Calvin Murphy's 12-year record.

Bucks come up short A solid core returns, but will they stay together? NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Shortly after Ohio State’s season ended with a loss to Kansas at the Final Four late Saturday night, point guard Aaron Craft was asked if he will be coming back next season. “Pfft! Of course. I love Ohio State,” he said with a grin. OK, so the Buckeyes are set at the point. Forward? They might not know that for a week or two. Ohio State shook off a lateseason funk to make an unexpected run to the Final Four. The Buckeyes are young — William Buford is the only outgoing senior — giving them a solid core for next season. The question is whether that core will stay together. Jared Sullinger and Deshaun Thomas, the team’s leading scorers, have until April 10 — at least by NCAA guidelines — to decide if they want to declare for the NBA draft. Thomas was a breakout star in the NCAA tournament, leading the Buckeyes in scoring. A multidimensional 6-foot-7 forward, he might consider leaving if he’s projected to be selected in the first round. Sullinger was projected as a lottery pick last year before deciding to return for his sophomore season. His draft stock might have dipped a little, but he’d still likely be a high first-round pick if he

Kansas won 64-62. comes out. “I honestly don’t know yet,” said Sullinger, who pulled up his jersey to cover his face after the loss to Kansas. If the Final Four loss was the end, it was a tough way to go out. Playing for a spot in its second title game in five years,

Ohio State (31-8) pushed Kansas around early but didn’t have an answer when the Jayhawks pushed back in the second half. Sullinger, a two-time AllAmerican, had a tough night against Kansas center Jeff Withey and a slew of double teams in the second half, hit-

ting 5 of 19 shots while scoring 13 points. Thomas had a rough go of it, too, scoring nine points on 3-of-14 shooting and getting into foul trouble, which allowed Kansas to send those double teams at Sullinger. See BUCKS/Page 15

BUCKS Buford had a good night after a monthlong funk, scoring 19 points while hitting 6 of 10 shots, but the three reserve players who got into the game combined for zero points and didn’t take a shot. Instead of playing in Monday’s national championship game against Kentucky, the Buckeyes were headed back to Columbus after a 64-62 loss. “I mean we can’t blame it on anything,” Buford said. “We had a great season. We had a lot of doubters this season. Nobody expected us to get this far. Real proud of the guys for helping me get to the Final Four my last year.” Ohio State came into the season with plenty of questions. The Buckeyes were

knocked out in the regional semifinals of the 2011 NCAA tournament as the top overall seed and lost three key players: Jon Diebler, Dallas Lauderdale and David Lighty. Ohio State was young, with 11 underclassmen, and outside of a few key spots, coach Thad Matta wasn’t sure what he had. The Buckeyes were a talented bunch, though, led by Sullinger, who shed 15 pounds in the offseason and was considered the nation’s top returning big man. Ohio State got the season off to a solid start, its only losses of the first three months on the road against Kansas, without Sullinger, Indiana and Illinois. But as the season started winding down, the Buckeyes became disjointed and selfish,

playing and practicing with a complacency that infuriated Matta. After watching his team lose two of three in late February and go through the motions at practice, Matta blew his stack and tried to throw them all out of the gym. Buford wouldn’t let them leave and even though they lost to Wisconsin the next day, the Buckeyes rallied after Matta’s my-way-or-the-highway moment. Ohio State went a roll, starting with a win

since 2005. The national semifinals pitting four powerhouse programs earned a 9.0 overnight rating and a 17 share, an increase of 1 percent over last season’s Final Four.

Wild finish gives Ryan Newman win people. The No. 15 (Bowyer) threw a divebomb in there. I’m sure once he got in there, he realized it wasn’t the best idea. It turned me around. It turned the No. 24 around.” Gordon angrily sought out Bowyer after the race, and heard the whole story. “He said he got hit from behind by the 39 (Newman),” Gordon said. “I had nowhere to go. Jimmie had nowhere to go. It was pretty unfortunate. ... I didn’t want to see that last caution. We had such a great battle with (Johnson). ... It was going to be an interesting race. “That’s just the way our year’s been going. It

can’t go on like this forever.” Gordon improved three spots in the points standings, but is still just 22nd. Newman’s performance drew praise from car owner Tony Stewart. “I’m ecstatic for Ryan,” the defending series champion said. “I got to see it on the replay during the caution after all the havoc broke loose. Ryan made an awesome move to the bottom. He was heads up to get in the gas and through that hole before it closed up.” Allmendinger was second, followed by Earnhardt, Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex Jr.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Ryan Newman needed help and was running out of time. Finally, Clint Bowyer provided an opening with two laps to go at Martinsville Speedway. Bowyer’s aggressive move took out race leaders Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson entering the first turn, allowing Newman to slide into the lead, and he held off A.J. Allmendinger and Dale Earnhardt Jr. on another restart for his first win in 23 races. “We were not a dominate race car,” Newman said. “Clint kind of cleared out Turn One for us and we were fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time.” The reverse was true for Gordon, who led 328 laps, and Johnson, who led 112. The Hendrick Motorsports teammates seemed poised to battle it out to see which one would give owner Rick Hendrick his 200th Sprint Cup victory, and neither had a chance in the end. “Jeff and I had been the class of the field so I really thought it was going to be a race between the two of us, and it certainly didn’t turn out that way,” Johnson said. He wound up 12th, and Gordon was 14th. Of the restart, Johnson said: “That inside lane is awfully inviting at times to dive-bomb on

All About Rabbits

Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. There are eight different genera in the family classified as rabbits, including the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), cottontail rabbits (genus Sylvilagus; 13 species), and the Amami rabbit (Pentalagus furnessi, an endangered species on Amami Ōshima, Japan). There are many other species of rabbit, and these, along with pikas and hares, make up the order Lagomorpha. The male is called a buck and the female is a doe; a young rabbit is a kitten or kit. Habitat and range Rabbit habitats include meadows, woods, forests, grasslands, deserts and wetlands. Rabbits live in groups, and the best known species, the European rabbit, lives in underground burrows, or rabbit holes. A group of burrows is called a warren. More than half the world's rabbit population resides in North America. They are also

native to southwestern Europe, Southeast Asia, Sumatra, some islands of Japan, and in parts of Africa and South America. They are not naturally found in most of Eurasia, where a number of species of hares are present. Rabbits first entered South America relatively recently, as part of the Great American Interchange. Much of the continent has just one species of rabbit, the tapeti, while most of South America's southern cone is without rabbits. The European rabbit has been introduced to many places around the world. Folklore and mythology The rabbit often appears in folklore as the trickster archetype, as he uses his cunning to outwit his enemies. * In Aztec mythology, a pantheon of four hundred rabbit gods known as Centzon Totochtin, led by Ometotchtli or Two Rabbit, represented fertility, parties, and drunkenness. * In Central Africa, "Kalulu" the rabbit is widely

Snowshoe Hare Lepus americanus:

The Mischievous Hare author: Darien Summers

Rabbits and hares look very much alike, but usually, the hare is bigger than the rabbit and have longer legs and ears. One big difference is seen in newborn hares. Rabbits are born hareless and blind, hares are born with a full coat of fur and open eyes. They are able to hop around just a few hours after birth. During the winter, snowshoe hares have a thick white coat that helps them blend in with the snow. In the spring, they shed their winter coat and grow a thin brown summer coat. Named after their large hindfeet, which can be up to 7 inches long, Snowshoe hares can reach speeds up to 30 miles per hour. The snowshoe hare was extirpated from Ohio in 1838, but in 2000, 183 hare were introduced in

known as a tricky character, getting the better of bargains. * In Chinese literature, rabbits accompany Chang'e on the Moon (woman on the Moon). Also associated with the Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year), rabbits are also one of the twelve celestial animals in the Chinese Zodiac for the Chinese calendar. It is interesting to note that the Vietnamese lunar new year replaced the rabbit with a cat in their calendar, as rabbits did not inhabit Vietnam.

* A rabbit's foot is carried as an amulet believed to bring good luck. This is found in many parts of the world, and with the earliest use being in Europe around 600 B.C. * In Japanese tradition, rabbits live on the Moon where they make mochi, the popular snack of mashed sticky rice. This comes from interpreting the pattern of dark patches on the moon as a rabbit standing on tiptoes on the left pounding on an usu, a Japanese mortar.

“April is the cruelest month.” T.S. Eliot’s poem, The Wasteland begins with that line. April can be cruel, with changeable weather involving heavy rains or sometimes blinding snow, animals being born with some only to die very quickly, and other animals having no choice but to come out seeking sustenance after what might have been a long winter of even worse weather. However you view April, you’ll no doubt see a bunny or two hop from hedge to field. It’s likely you’ll just see the Eastern Cottontail Rabbit, but there’s also the possibility you’ll see a Snowshoe hare try to hide, as well. This area has a diversity of open areas and urban areas somewhat intertwined. The Eastern Cottontail is able to live in both habitats, giving us a glimpse of its little cottontail or fluttery nose. What’s life like for this little furry creature? Usually, short…but hoppy! Below you’ll find descriptions of the Eastern Cottontail and the Snowshoe Hare with more information available from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife online at Eastern Cottontail Rabbit Sylvilagus floridanus: The Eastern cottontail rabbit is a native species very common in the state of Ohio. This small mammal with a brownish-gray body, long ears, and a small white tuft of a tail that resembles a cotton ball also has a rusty colored patch of fur on the nape of the neck. The feet can be whitish. When settlers came to our area, they did the Cottontail a favor by clearing of wood lands and the establishing more open areas along wooded borders that provided an ideal environment. • Mating: Polygamous • Peak Breeding Activity: April-May • Gestation: 29 or 30 days • Young are Born: Early March-late Sept.; May-June is peak • Litter Size: 2-7, average 5 • Young Leave Parents: 3+ weeks • Number of Litters per Year: 2-5, 3 is average • Migration Pattern: Year-round resident • Typical Foods: Clover, dandelion, plantain, lamb’s-quarter, and ragweed.

The Ghost in the Courthouse Statue

smoking his pipe. Now, my interest in Felix went way beyond his being a hero or a ghost. I had this special feeling inside like he was watching me and wanted to tell me something. Just me and only me. I know it sounds nuts, but we had a vibe, a connection. Sometimes it

Written by Bill Bailey Illustrated by Michelle Duckworth Chapter 1 Donnie eggs-on French ghost I just had to find out if a ghost was hanging out inside Felix LaBauve's statue. That was why my puppet Humpty and I checked him out every day after school – every inch of him. We were looking for a sign. No matter what the kids at school said, I wasn't some loser dork with a dummy for a friend and weird ideas about spirits and stuff. Sure, my oversized glasses and my mop of messy hair made me look a little different. And it's true I had more than my share of brains for a kid. But that didn't make me a nerd, did it? I figured the guys who picked on me were just jealous because none of them had such a cool egg for a friend. Still, when they made fun of Humpty, it made me mad. "Aren't you a little old for stupid, nursery-rhyme puppets?" they asked. Even their nickname for me, Donnie Dum Dum, was a slap at my "dummy" buddy. Humpty and I searched the statue up and down for clues. The great man gestured with an outstretched hand like he was making a grand speech. In his other hand, he held a newspaper. He stuck his nose in the air like he was king of the universe. Of course, the way I looked at it, he had a right to be stuck on himself. Every school kid knew the story. Felix LaBauve, the founding father and first newspaper editor of Jefferson, had given his life in a duel to protect the citizens of this town. I couldn't imagine how cool it would feel to be looked up to like that. Too bad he didn't get to enjoy it, being dead and all. Anyway, what better way to honor Jefferson's biggest hero than a statue on the square, right on the spot where the Matlock brothers had gunned him down? I suppose his violent death was why so many stories had sprung up about his ghost. Some said he was inside the statue, ever ready to shoot it out with the Matlock brothers again. Others said his spirit roamed the halls of the old courthouse, seeking revenge. Maybe another reason for the Felix ghost stories was the downright spookiness of the courthouse, which looked like a French castle, with shadowy arches, a tall bell tower, and clock faces on all sides. Legend has it that all four clocks stopped at 5 o'clock, the time of his death in 1879, and that the bell, which once rang loud and clear every hour on the hour, never made another sound. Felix even provided the architectural plans when the courthouse was built in 1872. What a guy! The coolest thing on the town square, other than the courthouse and the statue, was a bandstand – some called it a gazebo – with its small, round columns and pointy roof. Jazz musicians like W.C. Handy from Memphis used to perform in it while folks danced on the courthouse lawn. Some even claimed they saw a mysterious glow in the gazebo late at night. They said it was Felix

was a chilly breeze that would blow up out of nowhere. At other times, it was the deep stare in his eyes. Alerting Humpty to just such a look, I said, "Felix's eyes are boring a hole in us. You see it, don't you?" "Donnie, why you gotta pull me into it?" Humpty asked, sounding like a scaredy cat. Humpty was always afraid to try new things. He said he'd already had a great fall and didn't want to take any chances. As Mom would say, he didn't like to get outside his comfort zone. He was seated on my lap, with my hand on his back. "Think of it like this, Your Eggcellence," I said. "You've gotta take risks if you're ever going to break out of your shell." "Here it comes," he said, waiting for me to say it. "You've gotta break a coupla eggs to make an omelet," I said. "Argghhh, I hate that expression," Humpty said. "Why don't you make friends with real people?" "Real friends are the worst kind," I said. "Kids are mean." "Then why do you want them to like you?" he asked. "I want to be popular." "But you don't even like them." "It's complicated," I said. "How about trying some grownup friends?" Humpty asked. "They're worse," I said. "You get to liking them and they leave you, like Dad. Or they die – like Mom's boss, Mr. Elder." "Hmm, I see your point," Humpty said. "You've had some great falls yourself." "See, you never treat me like I'm a nerd. You always get me. Plus, you won't ever leave me."

NIE Coordinator: Dana Wolfe / Graphic Designer: Scarlett E. Smith

"What makes you so sure?" asked Humpty. "Because you're me, silly." "Duh, why didn't I think of that?" Humpty said. Looking up at the statue, he asked, "Do ghosts make good friends?" "Yeah, ghosts are cool," I said. "I want to be his buddy." "Why do you want that?" Humpty asked. "You've got me." "I know. But you'll have to admit, it would be cool to be friends with the town's biggest hero." Humpty began to pout. "Look, you silly old egg, you're my best friend," I said. "Felix's ghost would just be an extra – that is, if he exists." This seemed to brighten Humpty's mood, but he wasn't above milking things. "Donnie, do you like me better than the other dummies at the newspaper?" He wasn't talking about my mom who works at the Times, or I would've slugged him And he didn't mean the rest of the staff. He meant my puppet and stuffed animal collection, which I kept in a closet in the back office. "Of course I do," I said. "I like you better than all those guys, even Grizzly." "You sure?" asked Humpty. "I know Grizzly can make a big sound of his own, and I can only talk when you do it for me." He was talking about Grizzly's loud roar

when you pulled his cord. "Lighten up, you big ol' egghead," I said. "Speaking of which, I need you to egg Felix on, so I can find out if he's inside that statue." Now it was time to work my plan. We would trick Felix into giving himself away by puffing up his pride. I had read how he had a big temper and an even bigger ego. We would try the good cop, bad cop routine. Or should I say good kid, bad dummy? "Yep, Humpty, that's real greatness there," I said loudly, pointing at the statue. "The famous Felix LaBauve." It's pronounced Luh-BOVE. After I bragged on him, Felix seemed to puff out his chest and tilt his nose higher. "Yo, Felix," Humpty said in a grating voice. Voices are my specialty. Humpty high-fived the statue's hand. "Give me some skin, Frenchie," he said. Felix's eyes seemed to flash angrily. I gulped. "Show some ruh... respect, Humpty. Mr. LaBauve was a great American. Very courageous." "Looks like an old sourpuss to me," Humpty said. I watched the statue closely. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up. The statue glared at Humpty, looking like he was going to swat him with his open hand. I felt goosebumps prickle my arm. My skin felt dry. Time for good cop. "You seem a little out of sorts, Mr. LaBauve, sir. I would be too. All chipped and worn. And I hate to say it, but a bird wasn't very respectful to your nose." I reached up with a handkerchief and wiped off that snooty snoz. And that was when I heard it ... "Merci."

If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515. 2271249



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