Monday night’s discussion of vacant properties in the city began with a presentation by Barbara Dulworth, community services director, on the rough estimate of the costs associated with de-

veloping a vacant property registry and also costs associated with the possible establishment of a land bank or maintenance-to-ownership program. Dulworth said according to the 2010 Census, there are 9,265 housing units in Sidney and the same year the vacancy rate was 9.4 percent, or 921 vacant units. She said eliminating multi-family apartment complexes “there are approximately 626 properties to target for vacancy registry.” She outlined the costs associated with

Dulworth noted a preliminary estimate for staff time required for the full development of a registry program is $105,498. Also presented to council was information on establishing a land bank or See LIST/Page 11A

Boehner, R-Ohio, sent his second letter in a little over a month to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, repeating concerns over VA efforts to address the claims and asking that Shinseki “quickly provide specific information� on efforts to address the backlog and to improve accuracy in rating claims. With thousands of veterans waiting on claim decisions and an estimated 1 million service members expected to become veterans in the next five years, “the time for the VA to fix this

is now,� problem Boehner said in a statement. Saying the VA has noted that 4.7 million claims must be adjudicated in the next 32 months to meet Shinseki’s goals, Boehner wrote that he is concerned that appropriate short-term benchmarks haven’t been set for reaching the long-term goals. He wants specific benchmarks, deadlines and progress measurements from the VA. The speaker’s latest letter follows one he sent in February asking Shinseki to explain what is being done. Boehner had asked for information including the time frame for converting the VA’s old paper files to digital ones and what the VA has done to reduce how long veterans wait for final decisions on their claims.

Amish leader loses bid for release CINCINNATI (AP) — The leader of a group of 16 Amish men and women found guilty of hate crimes for cutting the hair and beards of fellow members of their faith lost his request Tuesday to be released from prison while he appeals his conviction and sentencing. Federal Judge Dan Aaron Polster ruled that Samuel Mullet Sr. still poses a threat to his Amish community because of his leadership power within it and that arguments in his forthcoming appeal do not raise substantial questions of law. Mullet is serving 15 years in prison stem-

ming from the 2011 eastern Ohio attacks, which were meant to shame fellow Amish accused of straying from strict religious interpretations. Fifteen others convicted in the case were sentenced to one to seven years in prison. In his ruling Tuesday, Polster quoted himself from Mullet’s February sentencing hearing in explaining why he thinks Mullet poses a danger to his followers. “They listen to you. They respect you,� Polster said. “And they follow what you say or what they think you want them to do, and I think they would do it today.�

Jeffery Bryant PIQUA — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is asking for the public’s help locating a sexually oriented offender who has been livBryant ing “at large� since last year. Jeffery Bryant, 47, last registered his address as 109 Mound St., Piqua, in December 2010. He has been listed as living “at large� since April 2012, and the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office issued a warrant for his arrest the following month. According to public records, Bryant was convicted of the rape of a juvenile female in 1998 and was released from custody in 2003. Bryant is wanted on a charge of failure to provide a change of address. He previously registered his vehicle as being a 1992 Red Cadillac Deville with the

Ohio license plate FA16BM. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Bryant should contact the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office or the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) at (855) BCI-OHIO (855224-6446). The suspect’s photograph and vital information are below and can also be downloaded on the Ohio Attorney General’s Website. This news release is part of DeWine’s Crimes Against Children Initiative. As part of the Crimes Against Children Initiative, DeWine will publicize convicted sex offenders who have victimized children and are wanted on outstanding warrants. Other parts of the initiative include the establishment of a Crimes Against Children Unit at BCI, creation of a rapid response team for crimes against children, and specialized law enforcement training through BCI and the Peace Officer Ohio Training Academy (OPOTA).

Clinton lured to Twitter NEW YORK (AP) — Bill Clinton is now on Twitter, albeit without a very presidential name. Stephen Colbert lured the former president to the social networking site on “The Colbert Report” on Monday, signing him up with the handle PrezBillyJeff. Clinton dictated his first message to Colbert, who typed: “Just spent an amazing time with Colbert! Is he sane? He is cool!” Whether Clinton would continue to use the account is uncertain. Colbert’s hand is clearly in the account’s bio, too. It reads: “Stephen Colbert is my BFF.” By Tuesday morning, the account had amassed nearly 50,000 followers and was climbing fast. Colbert interviewed Clinton not in his New York studio, but at the annual Clinton Global Initiative University gathering in St. Louis. The interview had been taped on Saturday.

Thatcher rejected feminist label LONDON (AP) — She was Britain’s first female leader, a strong woman who battled her way to the top of a maledominated political system — but don’t call Margaret Thatcher a feminist. The former prime minister, who died Monday aged 87, rejected the label — “I owe nothing to women’s lib,” she once said — and she leaves a contested legacy for women. For some, she was an inspiration who showed that anything was possible. For others, she was an individualist who got to the top and pulled the ladder up behind her. Meryl Streep, who won an Academy Award last year for playing Thatcher in “The Iron Lady,” said that although some of Thatcher’s ideas could be seen as “wrongheaded or misguided,” her legacy for women was huge. “To have given women and girls around the world reason to supplant fantasies of being princesses with a different dream: the real-life option of leading their nation; this was groundbreaking and admirable,” Streep said. But Wendy Webster, professor of modern cultural history at the University of Huddersfield, said Thatcher regarded herself as a one-off who owed nothing to feminism. “She didn’t see her career as having grown out of any kind of movements,” said Webster, author of a feminist analysis of the British leader, “Margaret Thatcher: Not a Man to Match Her.” “She saw herself as a unique individual who had made it through her own talent and her own determination.” Few would downplay the hurdles Thatcher overcame as a grocer’s daughter from a provincial town making her

way in Britain’s macho, patrician Conservative Party. Though she was a graduate of Oxford University — in chemistry, then an unusual field for a woman — she had to fight to be selected as a parliamentary candidate, and her victory in a Conservative Party leadership contest in 1975 was a shock. She wasn’t the first woman to head a

“We’re living in a fear-based environment right now,” says Kim First, CEO of The Agency Worldwide, a recruiting firm for pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Those who do have jobs these days are unlikely to lose them. Layoffs have sunk to a pre-recession level. But First says that companies feel they can’t afford to take a risk by hiring someone who doesn’t appear to be an ideal fit for the job they’ve advertised. “They are really reluctant to make that leap of faith,” she says. Companies “need someone to come in and hit the ground running.” The Labor Department said Tuesday that the number of job openings rose 8.7 percent in February from January to a seasonally adjusted 3.93 million. That was the most since

Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters late Tuesday that a deal was close. A Toomey aide said the same, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss closeddoor bargaining. An agreement on background checks — the cornerstone of Obama’s plan to restrict firearms — could boost bipartisan support for the overall effort, at least initially, because Manchin and Toomey are among their parties’ most conservative members. But the ultimate fate of gun legislation remains unclear, clouded by opposition from many Republicans and moderate Democrats in the Democratic-led Senate and the GOP-run House. The emerging deal would expand required federal background checks to sales at gun shows and online, but exempt transactions like face-to-face, non-commercial purchases, said several Senate aides and lobbyists who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the private talks. Currently, the checks are required only for sales through licensed gun dealers. On the Senate floor, Reid pointed to a poster-sized photo of a white picket fence that had slats bearing the names of the Newtown victims.

Man kills 13 in rampage VELIKA IVANCA, Serbia (AP) — He went from house to house in the village at dawn, cold-bloodedly gunning down his mother, his son, a 2-year-old cousin and 10 other neighbors. Terrified residents said if a police patrol car hadn’t shown up, they all would have been dead. Police said they knew of no motive yet in the carnage Tuesday that left six men, six women and a child dead in Velika Ivanca, a Serbian village 50 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of Belgrade. After the rampage, police said suspect Ljubisa Bogdanovic, a 60-year-old who saw action in one of the bloodiest sieges of the Balkan wars, turned his gun on himself and his wife as authorities closed in. Both were in grave condition at a hospital in the Serbian capital. In the small lush village surrounded by fruit trees, the suspect’s older brother Radmilo broke down in tears, unable to explain why the massacre had happened. “Why did he do it? … I still can’t believe it,” he said sobbing, covering his face with his hands. “He was a model of honesty.”

NKorean capital shows calm, not panic PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Scores of North Koreans of all ages planted trees as part of a forestation campaign — armed with shovels, not guns. In the evening, women in traditional dress danced in the plazas to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the late leader Kim Jong Il’s appointment to a key defense post. Despite more warnings from their leaders of impending nuclear war, people in the capital gave no sense of panic. Chu Kang Jin, a Pyongyang resident, said everything is calm in the city. “Everyone, including me, is determined to turn out as one to fight for national reunification … if the enemies spark a

U.S. companies posting more jobs WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers have more job openings than at any other time in nearly five years. That’s in part because they seem in no hurry to fill them. And it helps explain why the job market remains tight and unemployment high. Even as openings have surged 11 percent in the past year, the number of people hired each month has declined. Why so many openings yet so few hires? Economists point to several factors: Some unemployed workers lack the skills employers want. Some companies may not be offering enough pay. And staffing firms and employment experts say that in a still-fragile economy, many businesses seem hesitant to commit to new hires. They appear to be holding out for the perfect candidate.

Showdown gun control vote set for Thursday WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate’s top Democrat has set Congress’ first showdown vote for Thursday on President Barack Obama’s gun control drive as a small but mounting number of Republicans appear willing to buck a conservative effort to prevent debate from even beginning. Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada announced his decision Tuesday as the White House, congressional Democrats and relatives of the victims of December’s mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., amped up pressure on GOP lawmakers to allow debate and votes on gun control proposals. Twenty first-graders and six educators were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School, turning gun control into a top-tier national issue. Meanwhile, participants from both parties said a bipartisan deal was imminent on expanding required federal background checks to gun purchases conducted at gun shows and online. The two chief negotiators, Sens. Joe Manchin, DW.Va., and Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., were expected to announce the compromise on Wednesday. Manchin and Sen. Chuck

May 2008. At the same time, companies hired a seasonally adjusted 4.4 million people, just 2.8 percent more than in January. And hiring remained lower than it was a year ago, when it was nearly 4.5 million. The figures suggest that the Great Recession may have transformed the job market in ways that economists still don’t fully understand. Normally, more openings lead, over time, to stronger hiring and steadily lower unemployment. Yet in May 2008, when job openings were as numerous as they are now, the unemployment rate was 5.4 percent. Now, it’s 7.6 percent. And in 2007, before the recession began, employers were hiring an average of 5.2 million people a month — 15 percent more than in February this year.

The North’s latest warning, issued by its Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, urged foreign companies and tourists to leave South Korea. “The situation on the Korean Peninsula is inching close to a thermonuclear war due to the evermore undisguised hostile actions of the United States and the South Korean puppet warmongers and their moves for a war against” North Korea, the statement said Tuesday. There was no sign of an exodus of foreign companies or tourists from South Korea.

Student arrested CYPRESS, Texas (AP) — A student went on a building-tobuilding stabbing attack at a Texas community college Tuesday, wounding at least 14 people — many in the face and neck — before being subdued and arrested, authorities and witnesses said. The attack about 11:20 a.m. on the Lone Star Community College System’s campus in Cypress sent at least 12 people to hospitals, while several others refused treatment at the scene, according to Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department spokesman Robert Rasa. Two people remained in critical condition Tuesday evening at Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute, spokeswoman Alex Rodriguez said. Diante Cotton, 20, said he was sitting in a cafeteria with some friends when a girl clutching her neck walked in, yelling, “He’s stabbing people! He’s stabbing people!”

Is it safe to keep butter out on the counter, or must it be refrigerated? — Nancy P. in New Jersey Well, Nancy, you can keep butter at room temperature for a short period of time, but long term, be sure to refrigerate. Especially when on sale, buy some extra butter and store it in the freezer, but be sure to first wrap it in foil or freezer-safe bags. In the refrigerator, be sure to keep the butter tightly wrapped or in a covered dish to prevent it from collecting odors from

other foods. — Heloise FREEZING BREAD Dear Heloise: I like to buy fresh bread from the bakery because I like larger slices. I slice the bread myself and put it in the freezer. However, when I just wanted two slices, the bread was all frozen and would not separate. So, I put a piece of wax paper between every two slices, and the problem was solved. The wax paper made it easy to remove only two slices at a time. — Sam G. in California Send a money-saving or timesaving hint to Heloise, P.O.

“Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is an art,” said Rick Williams, lead therapist at Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley. In the coming months, he is inviting area couples and individuals to attend informal workshops to examine relationships and find new to opportunity strengthen the communication, trust and intimacy with their partners in life. There are two workshops: Links, a workshop for married couples, and Picks, a workshop for adults who wish to “avoid falling for a jerk or jerkette,” he said. Both workshops are being offered in partnership with Marriage Works! Ohio, a division of Elizabeth New Life Center in Miami and Shelby counties. “Strong relationships and marriages are not easily built or maintained,” said Williams. “There is so much clutter in our daily lives, our ability to give and receive emotional support and the notion that we should make time to repair and nurture our reseems lationships unrealistic. During the sessions we share experiences and challenge each other in exercises that help explore our patterns of communication and compatibility factors. Couples laugh and learn, and, in the process, find that they are drawn closer with a better understanding of each other’s need.” The free workshops include course materials, meals and gift cards upon completion of the class. Area residents may call (800) 521-6419, ext. 1119 for information and registration. Workshops have been scheduled as follows: Picks classes at the Senior Center of Sidney and Shelby County, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekly from April 16 through May 21; Piqua YMCA, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., May 18; Tipp City Church of the Nazarene, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., May 18; Shelby County YMCA, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., June 1.

gress and President Obama recently agreed to in the Budget Control Act, proposing a new $100 billion “stimulus” package, and expanding entitlement spending. And that $900 billion figure may be low. While the budget would require that Congress move on its proposed tax increases, the few areas that contain spending cuts would be merely advisory. If they do not occur, the total spending increase could top $1 trillion.

Out of money For years, we’ve been warned that Social Security and Medicare are running out of money as a result of 10,000 new baby boomers retiring each day. Despite all of its new spending, the Democrats’ budget does nothing to reform and modernize these vital yet unsustainable programs. Under their budget, Social Security’s disability fund would run out of money in 2016. The Medicare trust fund would go bankrupt in 2024. Social Security’s fund for senior citizens would go bankrupt in 2033 — just 20 years from now — resulting in an immediate 25 percent benefits cut under law. As a result of this taxing and spending, the Senate Democrat budget would add $7 trillion to the national debt over the next

decade. That’s more than $50,000 in new debt for every household. The interest payments alone would eventually reach $791 billion per year, or nearly as much as Washington spends on Medicare every year. Overall, it’s more of the same taxing, spending and borrowing that is pushing Washington’s budget perilously close to that of Greece.

No. 1 priority My No. 1 priority is job creation. That’s one reason I believe we have to deal with America’s record debt and trillion dollar deficits. Unfortunately, this budget makes a weak economy even worse. The Heritage Foundation estimates it will cost 800,000 jobs nationally, and more than 40,000 in Ohio. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has also written that continued increases in our massive debt will harm the economy and cost jobs. There is a better way. We need to balance the budget over time by reining in spending and bringing back economic growth. And we can do it. It means belt tightening. It means progrowth tax reform and it means smart changes to our vital entitlement programs so they will be there for future generations. It means growing the economy, not government.

BY FRAZIER MOORE The Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — She was the first crush for a generation of boys, the perfect playmate for a generation of girls. Annette Funicello, who became a child star as a cute-as-a-button Mouseketeer on “The Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s, ruled Funicello among baby boomers, who tuned in every weekday afternoon to watch her on their flickering black-andwhite television sets. Then they shed their mouse ears, as Annette did when she teamed up with Frankie Avalon during the ’60s in a string of frothy, fun-in-the-sun movies with titles like “Beach Blanket Bingo” and “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini.” Decades later, she endeared herself to baby boomers all over again after she announced in 1992 that she had multiple sclerosis and began grappling with the slow, degenerative effects with remarkably good cheer and faith. Funicello died on Monday at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, Calif., of complications from MS, the Walt Disney Co. said. She was 70 and had dropped from public view years ago. “She really had a tough exis-

She had the it, and there was just no stopping it.” They eventually drifted apart, but during the time they were together, he said, Disney tried to end their relationship, resulting in one of Anka’s biggest hits, “Puppy Love.” “The Disney crowd, and understandably so, didn’t want her too involved at too young an age,” Anka told the AP. “We had our professional careers and what have you, and they continued to tell her it was a puppy love, and marriage should not be in question. And I wrote about it.” When “The Mickey Mouse Club” ended, Funicello was the only cast member to remain under contract to the studio. She appeared in such Disney movies as “Johnny Tremain,” “The Shaggy Dog,” “The Horsemasters,” “Babes in Toyland,” “The Misadventures of Merlin Jones” and “The Monkey’s Uncle.” She also became a recording star, singing on 15 albums and hit singles such as “Tall Paul” and “Pineapple Princess.” Outgrowing the kid roles by the early ’60s, Annette teamed with Avalon in a series of movies for American-International, the first film company to exploit the burgeoning teen market.

tence,” Avalon told The Associated Press. “It’s like losing a family member. I’m devastated but I’m not surprised.” Avalon said that when they were working together, she never realized how beloved she was. “She would say, ‘Really?’ She was so bashful about it. She was an amazing girl,” he recalled. The pretty, dark-haired Funicello was 13 when she gained fame on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” a kids’ variety show that consisted of stories, songs and dance routines. It ran on ABC from 1955 to 1959. Cast after Walt Disney saw her at a dance recital, she appeared in the Mouseketeer uniform of mouse ears, a pleated skirt and a turtleneck sweater emblazoned with her first name, and captivated young viewers with her wholesome, girl-next-door appeal. She became the most popular Mouseketeer, receiving 8,000 fan letters a month, 10 times more than any of the 23 other young performers. “It was a happy time. They were wonderful times,” she recalled in a TV interview as an adult — and she might just as well have been speaking for her “Mickey Mouse Club” audience. Singer and composer Paul Anka, the one-time teen idol who briefly dated Funicello when they were on the concert circuit in the late 1950s, said that like seemingly every young American male

Network expanding VERSAILLES — Independents Fiber Network of Lima will soon start the next phase in a build-out of its GigE Plus Fiber-Optic Network. This phase of the build-out will connect existing broadband service partner facilities in Houston to another partner’s existing facility in Fort Recovery, with the route passing through Versailles and Greenville. While construction has been ongoing just outside village limits of Versailles for the past few months, construction crews will begin deployment activities within the village limits starting in mid-April. The route will enter Versailles on the west side

of town on Ohio 121 and continue to Pearl Street. The route will then move north on Pearl Street to Wood Street and continue to Harrison Street, thence moving north again to Main Street and exit on the east side of Versailles. Independents Fiber Network is whollyowned subsidiary of Com Net Inc. The GigE Plus Fiber-Optic Network is constructed as a high-capacity, backhaul network for providing high-availability service to local broadband providers and carriers serving the voice, video and data communication needs of local residential and business customers. The GigE Plus Fiber-

Optic Network was formed by bringing more than 1,500 route miles of the Gigabit Ethernet Plus Availability Coalition together under the common management of Independents Fiber Network. The network delivers Ethernet transport services throughout the western counties of Ohio and is the established backhaul network for facilitating the delivery of new and improved broadband services to rural and underserved communities.

TROY — Do you want to safely dispose of sensitive papers such as bank statements, credit cards and application forms; pay stubs, old bills, tax documents, medical records, floppy disks, CDs, DVDs or other documents that might make you a victim of identity fraud? Private information isn’t limited to bank statements and business contracts. Printed confidential materials are

produced daily in every business and home and by every person — from medical records to strategic planning documents. Minster Bank and Shred-it, the world’s leading on-site document-destruction company, are sponsoring a free Community Shred Day April 20 from 8 to 11 a.m. (or until the truck is full) to safely dispose of these sensitive materials. The event will be held at the Troy office of Minster Bank, 1280 Experiment Farm Road. Community Shred Day is free and up to five bags of paper will be accepted. Binders, staples and paper clips do not have to be removed. When papers are dropped off at site, you do not have to leave your car, Shred-it staff will remove the papers and shred them while you watch. The paper is

then recycled. As the fastest-growing form of fraud, identity theft and corporate espionage threatens to destroy personal credit ratings as well as a person’s reputation and security. Governments and regulators around the world continue to develop legislation to help protect individuals and businesses. Prevention is the best solution — once the documents are shredded, they cannot be reassembled. For more information, contact Minster Bank at (937) 339-9388 or 866MINSTER.

With an opportunity gain more space and better exposure, Dave Temple recently moved his Timber Ridge Limousine Service to a new location, 1390 Fourth Ave., across from the Sidney AMVETS post. The limousine service was formerly located in a garage behind Marco’s Pizza on Wapakoneta Avenue. Temple said the new location provides a more visible place to display his stretch Lincoln

limousine. The building also houses his Temple Rentals business and provides ample space for storing cars and other vehicles. Temple said he’s been in the limousine business for three years. “I’m the only one in Shelby County,” Temple said of his service. Although he’s enjoyed chauffeuring country music stars like Joe Diffie and Pam Tillis, Temple said he gets the biggest kick out of transporting young students to McDonald’s or other restaurants as their reward for high sales in

school fundraisers. “I like to see their faces when they get in the limousine,” Temple said, noting he works with area schools on their fundraisers. Temple said he does a lot of weddings and other local functions. Temple said he also uses the limousine in local parades and charitable events. In the future, Temple would like to purchase a Hummer “super stretch” limousine. Like his Lincoln limo, the Hummer would be white, which is said the color of choice for many brides.

Village to increase fee MISSION for delinquent bills PORT JEFFERSON — An ordinance to increase the administrative fee assessed for delinquent sewage bills placed on property taxes was given first reading at the Port Jefferson Village Council meeting Monday night. Village Clerk Judy Fair said the ordinance would increase the fee from 10 percent to 20 percent of the delinquent amount that is placed on property taxes. She said the fee would only affect long-delinquent bills, not those who pay their bills on time. She said since the inception the sewage system in 2006 there has

turned over to village solicitor for review before council takes action. She said the contract calls for the Port Jefferson Fire Department to receive $3,761 from the fire protection levy. The fire department also receives five free rentals of the community building for fundraisers or other purposes. Council members also discussed the possibility of holding community garage sales, but no action was taken. Fair said fliers will be posted in the village for public comment on the garage sales, which are being considered for early June.

LIST maintenance-toownership program. “Establishing a land bank is an option, but it is difficult to determine exactly what the cost in terms of staff time would be,” Dulworh said. Among the assumptions used in researching a land bank program are whether the current owner of a property would be willing to convey ownership to the city at no cost, that the county auditor would be willing to forgive unpaid property taxes and lien holders would be willing to release the lien and forgive any balances. Dulworth said it would take approximately 20 hours of staff time per property for a land bank and it would cost another estimated $10,000 per property to demolish structures. Stopping short of developing a full registry program, council requested city staff develop a list of vacant properties in the city. Mayor Mike Barhorst said the list would enable city officials “to see where there is a concentration” of vacant or abandoned properties. “We didn’t get into this overnight,” Councilman Steve Wagner said of the vacant house problem. He said the list would be a good first step. In another issue involving local housing issues, council approved an ordinance designed to clarify definitions of junk and other nuisance and reduce the time it takes to remedy a violation. It also provides a plan for dealing with repeat offenders. Kirby King, city code enforcement officer, said the revised ordinance will reduce the compliance time to a minimum of two days in public areas (any street, alley, right of way, etc.) and a minimum of five days on private property. At the recommendation of police Chief

From Page 1 Kevin Gessler and his staff that there are no establishments in the city “whose behavior raises to the level that he would advise council to object to the the license renewal, council opted not to object to liquor license renewals by local bars and other businesses selling alcoholic beverages.” Brian Schultz, city utilities director, a gave presentation on the surcharge rates for excessive loads of suspended solids and chemical oxygen demand. Schultz noted the purpose of the surcharge is to cover the wastewater treatment plant’s costs to treat high strength waste. Industries that exceed the guidelines are assessed the surcharge. The city adopted the surcharge ordinance in 2008 and the rates are evaluated every two years. Schultz recommended keeping the surcharge at the current levels and re-evaluate the charges in 2015.

Schultz also outlined the industrial pretreatment program requiring some industries to pretreat sewage before it flows into the city’s sewage system. Schultz said about one-third of the violations of the city ordinance are due to a failure by customers to monitor the sewage before it flows into the city system. City staff members have recommended updating the industrial pretreatment enforcement guide for action by council at a later date. The current guide was adopted in 1999. The city has 34 industrial customers with discharge permits and Schultz said it has been an increasing problem of gaining timely access to the industrial facilities to conduct sampling or monitoring activities. Council went into executive session to discuss pending litigation. No action was taken following the session.

CHIEF Sheriff’s Office, dropped out of the running before the assessment process. City Manager Mark Cundiff said said the scores from the assessment, which sets up real-life scenarios for candidates to determine how they would react to certain situations, are expected to be received later this week.

to say ‘mission accomplished.’” And “mission accomplished” means every WWII, Korean War and Vietnam War veteran living in Shelby County, who wants to see their memorial, has been able to do so. “I only thought we’d do World War II veterans,” said Ray, who went on a trip with the Miami County veteran group to see how it was organized. “We were blessed when Mike came on board,” he said. “The third trip we took was the first one Mike went on. He was supposed to go on the second trip, but a friend’s son got killed and he felt he needed to be with them.” The Praters credit the success of the program to Bennett and the other volunteers. “The amount of patience Mike has — he never gets rattled,” said Jody. “He gets the job done,” said Ray. Applications for the trip are available at The application deadline is Aug. 16. For more information about the trip, contact the Praters at 638-6326. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the trip can do so by sending it to Vets to D.C., P.O. Box 408, Anna, OH 45302. Checks should be made out to VFW Post 4239, Vets to D.C. All donations are tax deductible. Anyone who would like to assist with the trip can attend a committee meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Shelby County Ag Center, Fair Road.

The assessment scores and other information will be forwarded to the Sidney Civil Service Commission, which will certify the top three candidates. The SIdney Civil Service Commission will meet at 2 p.m.

on April 18 to certify the top candidates. Cundiff said the three finalists will then be brought in for another interview. Cundiff said he will then make an appointment of the new chief. Plans call for the new chief to be hired by the end of May. There is a possibility of a brief overlap period before Gessler leaves.

be at Kroger Friday and Saturday, along with May 23-25, to explain the trip. “We’ll be handing out fliers about the trip,” said Jody. “We’ll also have applications and will be accepting donations for the trip.” Volunteers will be at Kroger Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 8 p.m. On May 23, they will be there from 5 to 7 p.m. and from 1 to 8 p.m. on May 24-25. The Praters said two golf outings have also been planned by groups in the county. the proceeds from the outings are donated to the trip to cover the veterans’ expenses. At the present time, 25 applications have been received from veterans in the county or those in dire need. Seven applications have been received from veterans outside the county who would like to go on the trip. “Some of the applications we have are some that Mike (Bennett, the previous chairman) had received late,” said Jody. “We have to make sure everyone who has turned in an application is qualified to go.” One of the requirements, they said, is the veteran has never been to Washington, D.C., to see their memorial. “We felt we had to do another trip,” said Ray. “Ray was the one who brought up the first trip,” said Jody. “At the time, he said he didn’t want to run it, he just wanted to do it. The last trip in September, neither of us went. And it felt strange not being there.” “We want to end the trips on our terms,” said Ray. “We want to be able

been a problem of a few residents not paying their bills. She said in February, the village put $14,000 in unpaid bills on property owners’ tax bills. Fair said in 2012, the village received payments for $10,000 in previously delinquent bills. Fair said some consideration was given to shutting off the service of people who don’t pay their sewage bills, but it was thought that such action might cause those owing the money to move out of town, after their properties are condemned by the health department. Fair noted the fire protection contract was

rial. For this trip, something new has been added. “Ray and I sent a letter to Arlington National Cemetery asking if our veterans could place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers,” said Jody. “They wrote back and told us we had a 9:15 a.m. appointment to lay the wreath.” So now the Praters are finalizing plans for this tribute. “There’s a few technicalities we have to work out,” said Jody. “We’ll have to be at the cemetery earlier than normal. We ride trams back to the Tomb and they don’t start until 9 a.m., but the tram person said he could have them there earlier so we’ll have a ride back there.” She said the most decorated veterans on the trip will be the ones who place the wreath at the Tomb. With plans for the trip coming together, the group is now working on fundraisers. “Scott and Lisa Stewart are organizing a garage sale for us,” said Jody. “It will be held during the Anna garage sales. Troy Kies, the auctioneer, has said we can use half of his auction house building, which is located on County road 25A on the south edge of Anna.” The garage sale, she said, will be held April 25-27. “We’re asking for donations for the sale,” said Jody. “Scott and Lisa are willing to pick up the items.” The deadline for donating garage sale items is April 20. To donate items, call the Stewarts at (937) 407-9703. Volunteers will also

LLIA learns of kids’ fishing derby, class FORT LORAMIE — During a recent Lake Loramie Improvement Association meeting members learned the group has received a grant to sponsor the Kids Fishing Derby on May 4 and a Kids Fishing Class from 9:30 a.m. to noon July 12. Both events will be held at Lake Loramie State Park. Many prizes will be awarded in numerous categories at the Kids Fishing Derby. Jason Whitman has asked various organizations to set up an informational table about their group. May 4 is also the Free Fishing Day for adults. All participants in the Kids Fishing Class will receive a rod and reel and some tackle and tackle box. The group also will sponsor students and adults to attend Coonskin Cap Brigade Camp, Aug. 23-25. Contact Julie Stueve at (419) 628-3369 for information and registration.


Doug Winner spoke about the theme for the 2013 Boat Parade. “A Day At the Whitehouse”, “Famous Stars on Broadway” and “Walk of Fame” are some suggestions. Judy and Bob Kemper have agreed to chair the annual picnic again this year. Fall Fest is scheduled for Sept. 13-15 at the state park. Liberty Days in Fort Loramie will be July 4-6. Brian Miller reported the Memorial Tree Program has been reinstituted. Anyone who would like to plant a tree should purchase the tree and have it planted from a recommended source. The park will provide a memorial plaque to identify the tree, its donor and its honoree. Call the park at 295-2011 for details. Brian Williams said he thinks LLIA should reinstate Dredge/Legislative Days. He will meet with the officers in the next few weeks.

Williams introduced Rob Heckler who will be the Lake Loramie State Park Manager for dayto-day operations. Heckler is from the Celina area and has worked in maintenance at Lake Loramie. He has been with the park system for about 10 years. Seasonal applications are being accepted for maintenance and the camp office. These jobs pay the minimum wage. Williams asked whether LLIA would consider hosting a handicap fishing afternoon. It was suggested that we contact Shelby Hills to get information and direction. The dredge is being repainted. When complete it will begin at Luthman and work its way west on the lake. It was reported that State Rep. James Buchy and Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director James Zeringer looked at the spillway and replacement is a high priority.

Botkins hands Minster 1st loss BOTKINS — Botkins pulled off a stunner, and the surprise of the baseball season so far, edging visiting Minster 3-1 in non-league baseball action Tuesday. Minster, the two-time defending state champion, is now 5-1 and Botkins is 5-2 after its fifth straight win. Minster could muster just four hits off Botkins’ Josh Schwartz, who went the distance. “Josh had an an excellent performance,” said Botkins coach Phillip Groves. “And our kids did a good job of executing. This is a great win for our program.” The two teams were even at 1-1 after four-and-a-half innings, but Botkins took advantage of a key Minster error to score twice in the fifth on two passed balls and a ball hit by Evan Dietz. Alex Roberts and Christian Hoskins got aboard on singles to start the inning. Roberts wound up with two hits for the Trojans and for Minster, Adam Niemeyer had two hits and Jay Eilerman doubled.

night’s loss to the Texas Rangers early after jamming his non-throwing arm while dodging a line drive back to the mound. The Angels initially thought Weaver had only strained his elbow, but Weaver felt abnormal pain after the game, and an MRI exam on Monday unexpectedly revealed a fracture expected to sideline him four to six weeks. “It’s very disappointing, but I guess you’ve got to look on the bright side of things sometimes,” Weaver said. “It’s better earlier (in the season) than towards the end, but at the same time, it’s very frustrating and disappointing.” Weaver’s injury has sent the big-budget Angels scrambling after their 2-4 road start to a season of high expectations.

Weaver out 4 weeks ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver will be out for at least a month after the ace broke a bone in his left elbow, casting a pall over the team’s home opener Tuesday before it even began. The Angels put Weaver on the 15-day disabled list, and the durable 20-game winner’s non-throwing arm was in a blue sling while his teammates took batting practice before their Angel Stadium opener against Oakland. “This is all new to me,” Weaver said. “I’ve never broken anything before, and didn’t really know how to take the news. It kind of was a shock at first, and now you’ve just got to play the waiting game, I guess.” Weaver left Sunday

For the Jackets, Ryan Penley was 3-for-4, Jacob Lochard singled and homered, Bobby Benshoff had two hits and Layne Sharp two hits and three runs. Benshoff and Lochard both drove in two. Penley started and was victimized by shoddy defense, the Jackets committing eight errors. He allowed just one earned run before exiting in the sixth.

the abdomen (as opposed to hips and thighs), and with prediabetes or diabetes. However, there are other causes, such as sleep apnea and untreated hypothyroidism. In obese people, the rate of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease ranges from 50 percent to 90 percent. Only about 5 percent of people with fatty liver go on to develop cirrhosis. Even a 5 percent to 10 percent loss of body weight can prevent progression, and some medications are showing promise at preventing progression. Once cirrhosis has set in, it usually isn’t curable; however, that certainly doesn’t mean there is no hope! There are many important things that can

be done to prevent problems, even in people with cirrhosis. A few are easy: Get vaccinated against hepatitis A and hepatitis B. These viruses can be very serious to someone with existing liver disease, and are completely preventable with vaccination. Also, diet is very important. In addition to avoiding all alcohol (which you already have done), people with cirrhosis should avoid undercooked or raw foods, especially seafood like shellfish. Your doctor will periodically look at your liver to evaluate for precursors of liver cancer, and may recommend medication to prevent bleeding in the esophagus, both of which are complications of cirrhosis.

Rather than “replace” your grandchild, it would be better for all concerned to HELP her. DEAR ABBY: Three years ago, I found out that my wife of 14 years was sneaking around behind my back with her high school sweetheart. I confronted both of them and it ended. I forgave her, but I still can’t sleep at night because of something that’s bothering me. His wife has no idea about the affair, and I feel guilty that I haven’t told her about everything that happened. Some of my friends say I should call her and tell her, but now it seems like it happened too long ago to bring it to her attention.


Also, in an attempt to get her husband to come clean — which he did — I promised him I wouldn’t tell his wife. My wife and I have patched things up and we’re having the best years of our life together. So the question is, should I break my word and possibly upset my new relationship with my wife so I can not feel this guilt? — CAN’T SLEEP IN ILLINOIS DEAR CAN’T SLEEP: Surely there’s a better cure for your insomnia than causing needless pain to the wife. The affair ended years ago, and she is blameless in all this. Because you are still having trouble sleeping, talk to your doctor about it. Some sessions with a psychologist or a licensed family therapist may help you to assuage your guilt and find closure.

Haller part of national examination Lehman Catholic High School senior Jacob Haller has been selected as one of approximately 900 students across the nation to take the United Haller States National Chemistry Olympiad Examination. More than 12,000 students are administered the preliminary test at local sites in an attempt to qualify to take the national examination. Haller will be administered that exam April 13 at Ohio Northern University. The three-part national exam lasts 4.5 hours and is divided into multiple choice questions, problem-solving questions, and a practical lab. The 20 top-scoring students are invited to attend a study camp held at the United States Air Force Academy. Those students will try to win one of four spots on the United States National Chemistry Olympiad team and the opportunity to represent the United States at the International Chemistry Olympiad based on performance. The study camp will be held at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. The International Chemistry Olympiad is an annual competition for the world’s most talented chemistry students at the secondary-school level. Nations around the world send a team of four students, who are tested on their chemistry knowledge and skills in a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination. The 45th Annual International Chemistry Olympiad will be held in Moscow, Russia, in July. The competition in the United States is sponsored by the American Chemical Society. Haller, the son of Cameron and Teresa Haller, of Sidney, ranks in the top 10 percent of his class and has an ACT composite score above 30. Haller has received a number of academic honors at Lehman. In addition, he has been involved in numerable curricular and extra-curricular activities. After graduating from Lehman, he plans to study engineering at Purdue University.

Local man named to Ohio Military Hall of Fame Thatcher honored for service in Vietnam BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN JACKSON CENTER — Dennis Thatcher, of rural Jackson Center, will be inducted into the Ohio Military Hall of Fame during a ceremony May 3 at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. The 11:30 a.m. ceremony is open to the public and will be in Ohio Veterans Plaza on the east side of the statehouse. A local ceremony honoring Thatcher will take place during an open house at the Sidney Veterans of Foreign Wars hall May 5 beginning at 1 p.m. Veterans who are Ohio natives or who were conscripted from Ohio, who have been decorated for valor in the field, are eligible for induction into the Ohio Military Hall of Fame. Those include servicepeople who have been awarded one of the following citations: Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross for Heroism, Bronze Star Medal with “V” device, Air Medal with “V” device or Commendation Medal with “V” device.

Silver Star Thatcher is a veteran of the U.S. Army who was awarded a Silver Star for valor in combat in Vietnam. He joins two other area men in the hall of fame. Sidney native Robert Preiser was inducted posthumously in 2007. Donald Wehrman, of Fort Loramie, was inducted in 2010. Thatcher was drafted and served in the HHC, 1st Brigade, 5th Infantry, Division M from 1969 to 1971. “I was in a top-secret outfit,” he told the Sidney Daily News recently. Working in electronic warfare, his job was to relay messages to a home base. The messages were about enemy troop movements. He earned his Silver Star in 1971 when he was in charge of a firebase not far from the demilitarized zone between North and South Vietnam. At the base, on Dong Ha mountain, he sent

He gave coordinates to Spooky, who blew up the Dong Ha fuel pit to keep the fuel out of enemy hands. During the most intense fighting, Specter flew around the base where Thatcher was, firing to keep the ARVN battalion from being overrun, while Thatcher put himself in harm’s way by standing outside his bunker to direct the plane’s itinerary. “I put my flashlight in a hole at my bunker, so he would know not to fire on me,” Thatcher said.

Commendation His commendation for a Silver Star reads, in part, “For gallantry in action … and evading the enemy to reach a friendly fire support base.

Ohio’s Fort Fizzle In 1863, quiet, bucolic Holmes County was the site of a nationally reported protest against the United States government. The fight was over the Conscription Act, which ordered that men be drafted in states that did not meet their troop quotas during the Civil War. The Copperheads, Northerners who favored an immediate peace settlement with the Confederacy, were very active in Holmes County. They encouraged neighbors to resist the draft or desert once they were forced into the Union Army. On June 5, a government official sent to enforce the Conscription Act was driven from Holmes County when protesters threw a rock at him. Soon after, a provost marshal and his men captured the four Copperheads accused of attacking the official. On their way to Wooster with their prisoners, the marshal and his men were stopped by eight to 10 Copperheads who demanded the four locals’ release. The government band was forced to surrender them. The skirmish caused a sensation. Hundreds of Copperheads gathered in nearby Napoleon (now called Glenmont) to protest and to try to stop any further enforcement of the Conscription Act. News of their protest reached army officers in Columbus, who ordered more than 400 soldiers to march toward Holmes County. That report scared the Copperheads. Most of them quickly fled, but a few decided to make their stand against the Army forces at a local farmhouse. They named the house Fort Vallandigham, after Copperhead leader and Dayton Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham. In its cellar, the “fort” had a spring and a tunnel that led to an orchard. An old stone fence and large rocks surrounded it. Guns and four cannons fortified it. The Army troops arrived; shots were fired. It was a brief skirmish. Some observes said it lasted one minute, others said no more than five. In the end, the resisters jumped out of the fort’s windows and ran out the doors and disappeared into the woods. Area reports of the battle quickly called the farmhouse by a new name—Fort Fizzle.

Sidney Daily News,Wednesday, April 10, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, April 11, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today your focus is on money and cash flow. At some point, you might feel discouraged and flat broke. Don’t worry; this feeling is fleeting. (Whew!) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Moon is in your sign today, making you a bit more emotional than usual. Don’t take this criticism seriously, especially from older people. (It could be sour grapes.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t listen to feelings of inadequacy that you might experience today. We all feel this way from time to time. It’s part of life, even though it doesn’t help anything. “Begone!” CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Someone older might rain on your parade today. Well, it’s always easy for older and more experienced people to be critical, isn’t it? Just ignore this. (Sheesh!) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might be discouraged in discussions with authority figures today because they aren’t receptive to your suggestions. “Talk to the hand!” (It was ever thus.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Travel plans or something that has to do with publishing, the media and higher education might disappoint you today. People who think they know better might create obstacles. (Grrr.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might not be happy with how things are shared today. Or you might feel overly burdened by debt. Fortunately, this discouraging feeling is very brief. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be prepared to compromise with others today, even though you might not feel like doing so. Don’t take it personally if relations with friends and partners are critical or stiff. This will last only a few hours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Someone might be critical of your work today, which is always a bummer. Don’t respond. Just let it go, because this is brief. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Children might feel like an extra burden today. (It goes with the territory.) Just do what is expected of you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with authority figures in the family might be discouraging today. Someone could be critical of you. Don’t take this personally; this feeling will be so brief that it’s not worth making a big deal. Phfft! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It’s easy to fall into negative thinking or worry mode today. Fortunately, this is a brief dark cloud on your horizon. Gone in a few hours. Just let it pass. YOU BORN TODAY You can be happy leading or following, as long as you feel you are useful. You are genuinely interested in what others have to say, which is why you are diplomatic. Many of you can mediate difficulties between others. You’re a nurturer with strong family values. You give support when needed. In the year ahead, a major choice will arise. Choose wisely. Birthdate of: Jennifer Heil, skier; Marguerite de Navarre, author/reformist; Peter Riegert, actor.

9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

In our hearts your memory lingers, sweetly tender, fond and true. There is not a day, dear Mother/Father, that we do not think of you. Thank you for loving and sharing, for giving and for caring. God bless you and keep you, until we meet again. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. Those we love we never lose, for always they will be, loved remembered, treasured, always in our memory. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. My heart still aches in sadness, my silent tears still flow. For what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know. Memory is a lovely lane, where hearts are ever true. A lane I so often travel down, because it leads to you. Oh how we wish he/she was here today, to see all the blessings we have. Yet somehow you know that he/she is guiding us on our paths. Tenderly we treasure the past with memories that will always last. Remembering you on this day, comforted by so many memories. In the hearts of those who loved you, you will always be there. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. . Loved always, sadly missed. Forever remembered, forever missed. Suffer little children to come unto me.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.
