Report: Budget sends less, not more to schools AKRON (AP) — A closer look at state figures shows the Ohio House budget delivers less money to Ohio school districts than the governor originally proposed despite initial claims that a revised funding formula would mean fewer districts saw cuts. During Tuesday’s rollout, House Finance Chairman Ron Amstutz told reporters the revised K-12 budget was “to the point where no districts would be re-

ceiving less operating money next year and many of them are receiving more.” Since then, legislative analysts have released spreadsheets showing how each district would fair under the House plan — figures different experts are interpreting in different ways.

SHS educator/coach to join Hall of Honor Dr. Bill Ross III had a very active itinerary during his high school days including junior class president, band and orchestra member, and distance runner.

On Friday, he will return to the high school to receive the highest award bestowed by his school district, induction into the Sidney City Schools Hall of Honor. Ross will be joined by lifelong friend Douglas Millhoff (SHS 1958) in the 2013 induction class that will increase the hall’s membership to 107. The 20th annual ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the audi-

torium followed by a reception in the gymnasium. Public attendance is encouraged for both events. Four years after his high school graduation, Ross was in the first class to receive Bachelor’s degrees from Urbana College. In the fall of 1969 his initial teaching assignment was American History at the former Parkwood Junior High in Sidney. During that school year he confirmed his desire to enter the military which he saw as an extension of social studies and a personal duty. He joined the Marines, became an

He taught several different courses in history and geography. Not surprisingly, military history was a personal favorite. Ross included local history in the social studies curriculum whenever possible. He also had long and successful tenures coaching girls track along with cross country for boys and girls See ROSS/Page 4

The film has yet to open overseas, where the sport is a harder sell. But Cruise knocked it out of the park with a $61.1 million international launch in 52 countries for his scifi thriller “Oblivion.” That bodes well for the domestic debut of “Oblivion” next Friday. The film stars Cruise as a workman on a devastated future Earth who lands in a battle with aliens. If “Oblivion” packs in comparable domestic crowds, it will help maintain the action-star momentum Cruise regained with 2011’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” That return to box-office luster came after some fitful years that followed odd turns in his personal life, culminating with the breakup of his marriage to Katie Holmes last year. Released by Warner Bros., “42” easily beat the domestic start of an established franchise in “Scary Movie 5.” The Weinstein Co. sequel opened in second-place with $15.2 million, the smallest debut for the horror-comedy series. Three of the previous four “Scary Movie” installments had debuts of $40 million or more. On the other hand, “42” outdid the usual expectations for baseball movies, which usually do modest business at best.

ROSS while helping out with the male distance runners during track season. He founded a pair of cross country events that still endure today, and served two terms as President of the West Central Ohio Track and Cross Country Coaches Association. Colleagues and students described his teaching as “innovative.” Several former students supported his nomination by citing the enthusiasm of his work and their enjoyment of his various classes. At this same time he was continuing his own studies, completing a Master’s Degree at Eastern Kentucky and a doctorate at Southern Mississippi. The doctorate concluded with his dissertation on incorporating local history into a high school social studies curriculum. Ross was selected as the Ohio High School Social Studies Teacher of the Year in 1994. The longtime chair of the SHS social studies department retired from the Sidney City Schools in 2001 and promptly embarked on a second career that was a logical extension of his earlier work as he became a “teacher of teachers.” Ross was always a student of the teaching methods employed by those who taught him and those he worked with. This second career would see him traveling nationwide to conduct seminars in the teaching of American History through his affiliation with a pair of national organizations. During these educational travels he’s worked in 42 states. Ross is currently the vice president of Professional Development Services for the New Jersey based American Institute For History Education.

From Page 3 Along the way he found time for civic involvement, mainly focused on his passion for education, local history, and the military. He’s most proud of three decades of service on the Monumental Building Board of Trustees during a period when the Civil War memorial's future went from doubtful to secure. Ross also helped revive the dormant Shelby County Historical Society and provided a lead gift

toward the purchase of its current home. A frequent visitor to his hometown, Ross now resides in New Orleans, La. He has three grown sons. He becomes the fourth member of the SHS class of 1965 and third member of his immediate family to join the Hall of Honor. William Ross Jr. was part of the first induction in 1994 while brother, Dave, was recognized three years ago.

Proposed aerial surveillance concerns city

IN THIS April 6 photo, Anthony Cummerlander 19, along with sister Lauren Cummerlander, 22, of Pickerington, swing together at Camp Willson in Bellefontaine. They were participating in Ohio SIBS, an organization for adult siblings of people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Siblings bond at Ohio retreat BY RITA PRICE The Associated Press BELLEFONTAINE (AP) — The tandem swing goes so high it requires harnesses and a hoist, plus safety helmets and nerve. More than a few of the would-be riders looked up — 34 feet up, to be exact — and balked. Barb Sapharas listened to the coaching that ensued and smiled. Each set of swing partners were siblings, one with a lifelong disability and one without, ready again to laugh and love each other through something scary. “Pretty cool,” said Sapharas, board chairman of Ohio SIBS, an organization for adult siblings of people with developmental disabilities and their families. SIBS members and staff from Ohio State University’s Nisonger Center on Disabilities hosted a retreat recently for the sibling pairs at YMCA Camp Willson, home of the giant swing. Tom Fish, director of social work and family support services at Nisonger, said the retreat is the only one in the nation that mixes fun with a focus on transition, teaching the typical siblings how they can best help their brothers and sisters make the transition to adult services, employment and independent living. “Those things will determine the rest of her life — her happiness,” said Michelle Long, whose 17year-old sister, Julia Truby, has Down syndrome. “I want to influence that.” The brothers and sisters of people with disabilities don’t often participate in early planning and service arrangement, Sapharas said, then face a steep learning curve if they inherit responsibility after parents pass away. Better to keep everyone in the fold from the beginning, she said. “Siblings are the longest relationships in

life,” she said. “I like to say we’re the first friend and the first playmate, although maybe not by choice. We’re the first tormenters. And probably their first advocates.” Paige and Hanna McCaslin, 17-year-old twins, tackled the giant swing the same way they approach lots of tasks — with hands clasped. Hanna has autism; Paige does not. “We’re still the other half of each other,” Paige said. “We’re super, super tight. Without her, I’d be crushed.” Paige has seen and heard her share of not-sonice teens who pick on people who are different. Because of Hanna, she could never be one of them. “Without her, I might be that person,” Paige said. “She makes me better.” Anthony Cummerlander, 19, told his sister to take a picture of him before he got on the swing and send it to their mom. He felt that he was doing a very “Gonzo” thing, a reference to the beloved Muppet character tucked in his jacket. Lauren Cummerlander, 22, enjoyed their swing session. “It’s kind of like being shot out of a cannon, I think,” she said. But she was grateful for the retreat’s serious side and the chance to talk in depth about how she and other typical siblings can help chart futures. “You know it’s coming someday,” Lauren said of her role. Oftentimes, of course, the siblings with disabilities need no help at all. Tables turn. “Kyle!” yelled his sister, Alison McKay, as she was strapped into the harness for the swing. “Why are you making me do this?” “Because,” said Kyle, who has Down syndrome. “It’s good for you.” ——— Information from: The Columbus Dispatch, m

PlayhouseSquare plans upgrade CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s PlayhouseSquare, with 10 stages and a million visitors a year, wants to extend its appeal to the street outside. The nonprofit PlayhouseSquare Foundation plans to spend $16 million over the next year to upgrade the district with bright signs, gateway arches and digital displays. “All we really need to do is pull the inside out,” said Danny Barnycz of Baltimore, the design consultant hired to devise the plan. The Barnycz Group has worked on largescale digital displays around the world for locations including Times Square, the Dubai Mall and Chicago’s Crown Fountain at Millennium Park. Art Falco, president and CEO of PlayhouseSquare since 1991, said the proposals will transform the theater district. A signature proposal will be installation of a 24-foot-tall glass crystal chandelier over the district’s hub street intersection, invoking the chandeliers inside the renovated theater lobbies. Plans also call for four gateway signs in gold-colored aluminum to span entrances to the district and architectural lighting to highlight details of historic buildings. “Everything that’s being developed is to

reported Sunday. Findings involving Linden-McKinley STEM Academy, which serves 7ththrough 12thgraders, come as the Columbus City Schools is under investigation by the state and the Federal Bureau of Investi-

create a more dynamic environment,” Falco told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer. Falco said the project will be funded through a 60-40 private-public partnership. He said Cleveland and Cuyahoga County have both expressed a commitment and the remainder will be raised through donations or naming rights. Normally, PlayhouseSquare would have waited until it had all the money in hand before announcing such a project, but Falco said that the organization needed to go public now because it will soon seek approval from the Cleveland City Planning Commission.

Under the proposal still being reviewed by city officials, Dayton would contract with Xenia-based Persistent Surveillance Systems LLC for a three-month pilot program of 120 hours of surveillance costing a total of $120,000 that would come from seized assets from crimes. The camera system could scan up to 25 square miles every second from an altitude of about 8,000 feet, with images fed to analysts on the ground. Now-retired Dayton police Maj. Larry Faulkner oversaw the proposal’s development and believes Dayton would be the first law enforcement agency in Ohio to use such a system. Other agencies in Ohio, including the State Highway Patrol, use planes and helicopters mostly for traffic enforcement or emergency situations. But this system would provide an investigative tool, said Faulkner, who insists it wouldn’t violate privacy.

Warnings remain COLUMBUS (AP) — Flood warnings remain in parts of Ohio as water from last week’s drenching rainstorms continues to swell some rivers and close some roads. The National Weather Service said flood warnings remained in effect Sunday for the Maumee River in northwest Ohio, the Scioto River in central Ohio, and Killbuck Creek south of Cleveland. The flood-prone Blanchard River finally receded below flood stage Saturday.

School changed rolls, grades COLUMBUS (AP) — Records show thousands of pieces of data about students enrolled at a Columbus science and technology school were changed or removed during the first week of the 2011 summer break, a newspaper

population such as homeless individuals or African-Americans. But Dayton police Chief Richard Biehl says the concerns are unfounded. He insists police would not track legal activity and wouldn’t be able to determine race or gender from the video images or identify makes and models of cars or license plates. “But when we know a crime event occurred at a specific location, and if we have footage of that area at the time, we could track movement to and from the site,” Biehl said. He also said police would use the surveillance to disrupt crime patterns. For example, if police identify a pattern of times or locations for a series of burglaries, they could deploy the surveillance accordingly. Information secured from the air would have to be supported by on-ground verification and investigation, Biehl said.

CINCINNATI (AP) — An aerial surveillance system proposed to help deter crime in a southwest Ohio city is drawing concerns from a civil liberties group and residents who fear it would violate individuals’ privacy rights. Some Dayton residents and officials with the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio are worried about the surveillance video that would be recorded by a camera system on piloted aircraft. “I’m concerned that this system would allow police to collect a huge amount of data that could then be mined for violations, even minor ones people might break unknowingly,” said lawyer and Dayton resident Vernellia Randall, who also worries that innocent people’s movements might be tracked. Resident Maria Holt also is concerned the surveillance could be used “in a discriminatory way,” possibly targeting segments of the

gation for attendance data tampering allegations Motivations for changing attendance data include improved building and district scores, additional federal funding and sometimes staff bonuses.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, April 15, the 105th day of 2013. There are 260 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 15, 1912, the British luxury liner RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic off Newfoundland at 2:20 a.m. ship’s time, more than 2 hours after striking an iceberg; 1,514 people died, while less than half as many survived. On this date: • In 1850, the city of San Francisco was incorporated. • In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln died, nine hours after being shot the night before by John Wilkes Booth at Ford’s Theater in Washington. Andrew Johnson became the nation’s 17th president. • In 1874, an exhibition of paintings by 30 artists, including Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Paul Cezanne, opened in Paris. (A critic derisively referred to the painters as “Impressionists,” a name which stuck.) • In 1942, Britain’s King George VI awarded the George Cross to Malta for its heroism in the early days of World War II. • In 1943, the Ayn Rand novel “The Fountainhead” was first published by Bobbs-Merrill Co. • In 1945, during World War II, British and Canadian troops liberated the Nazi concentration camp Bergen-Belsen. • In 1947, Jackie Robinson, baseball’s first black major league player, made his official debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on opening day. (The Dodgers defeated the Boston Braves, 5-3.) • In 1959, Cuban leader Fidel Castro arrived in Washington to begin a goodwill tour of the United States. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles resigned for health reasons (he was succeeded by Christian A. Herter). • In 1960, a three-day conference to form the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) began at Shaw University in Raleigh, N.C. (The group’s first chairman was Marion Barry.) • In 1986, the United States launched an air raid against Libya in response to the bombing of a discotheque in Berlin on April 5; Libya said 37 people, mostly civilians, were killed.


Woman shares home with pumas KLAIPEDA, Lithuania (AP) — A Lithuanian woman says she has been raising three pumas in her three-room apartment after fearing for their lives at the local zoo. Rasa Veliute, a 23-yearold volunteer at the zoo in Klaipeda, a Baltic Sea port town, says she took the cubs home four months ago after their mother began neglecting them. The pumas - also known as mountain lions or cougars - are named Kipsas, Gipse and Kinde. Veliute says they eat a lot of chicken and get along well with her East European shepherd dog. There is no Lithuanian law barring keeping the animals at home, and the zoo did not object to Veliute's actions. But Veliute told reporters Friday that the pumas have grown fast and will likely return to the zoo this summer.

AP Exclusive: Likely tax cheats flock South, West BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Worried the Internal Revenue Service might target you for an audit? You probably should be if you own a small business in one of the wealthy suburbs of Los Angeles. You might also be wary if you’re a small-business owner in one of dozens of communities near San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta or the District of Columbia. A new study by the National Taxpayer Advocate used confidential IRS data to show large clusters of potential tax cheats in these five metropolitan areas. The IRS uses the information to target taxpayers for audits. The taxpayer advocate, Nina Olsen, runs an independent office within the

IRS. She got access to the data as part of an effort to learn more about why some taxpayers are more likely to cheat than others. The study also looked at tax compliance in different industries, and found that people who own construction companies or real estate rental firms may be more likely to fudge their taxes than business owners in other fields. Many of the communities identified by the study are very wealthy, including Beverly Hills and Newport Beach in California. Others are more middle class, such as New Carrollton, Md., a Washington suburb, and College Park, Ga., home to a section of Atlanta’s massive airport. Steve Rosansky, president and CEO of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, said business owners in his city

are probably targeted because many have high incomes. The likelihood of an audit does increase with income, according to IRS data. “I imagine it’s just a matter of them going where they think the money’s at,” Rosansky said in an interview. “I guess if I was running the IRS I’d probably do the same thing.” The study focused on small-business owners — sole proprietorships, to be specific — because they have more opportunity than the typical individual to cheat on their taxes. Many small businesses deal in cash while most individuals get paid in wages that are reported to the IRS. The IRS only audits about 1 percent of tax returns each year, so the agency tries to pick returns that are most likely to yield additional tax money.

SURVIVORS ARE helped to escape from a window at Mogadishu’s court complex in Mogadishu, Somalia, Sunday. Militants launched a serious and sustained assault on Mogadishu's main court complex Sunday, detonating at least two blasts, taking an unknown number of hostages and exchanging extended volleys of gunfire with government security forces, witnesses said.

16 killed in attack on court MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A barrage of bullets and two car bomb blasts rattled Mogadishu on Sunday when nine al-Shabab Islamic extremists stormed Somalia’s main court complex, officials said, in a two-hour attack that shows the country’s most dangerous militant group may be down but not defeated. A preliminary death toll stood at 16, including all nine attackers. The government didn’t immediately publicize the number of security forces, government employees and civilians who died during the attack. The assault was the most serious in Mogadishu since alShabab was forced out of the capital in August 2011. AlShabab controls far less terri-

tory today than in recent years, and its influence appears to be on the decline, but Sunday’s attack proved the extremists are still capable of pulling off well-planned, audacious assaults. The top U.N. official for Somalia, Augustine P. Mahiga, said he was shocked and outraged by the attack. Mahiga said the total number of dead wasn’t clear, but that reports indicated that “many innocent civilians were killed including women and at least one child.” The attack on the Supreme Court complex began at around 12:30 p.m., sparking running battles with police and army forces. One car bomb detonated outside the court, and gunmen were seen on the roof of a court building firing

shots, an Associated Press reporter at the scene said. Police officer Hassan Abdulahi said he saw five dead bodies lying at the entrance to the court. The militants took an unknown number of hostages during the siege. Many other government workers and civilians in the court complex — a confusing labyrinth of buildings and rooms — hid while fearing for their lives. Western officials knew militants had been planning a major violent incident. The British Foreign Office on Friday released a travel warning for Somalia that warned of a high threat of terrorism. “We continue to believe that terrorists are in the final stages of planning attacks in Mogadishu,” it said.

Background check: Close vote predicted WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan Senate proposal to expand background checks for gun buyers gained the backing of one Republican and the potential support of a second Sunday as sponsors said the vote expected this week was too close to call. The plan would “strengthen the background check system without in any way infringing on Second Amendment rights,” Maine Sen. Susan Collins said in a statement explaining her support for the measure. But she added that “it is impossible

to predict at this point” what will be in a final bill. Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has a B+ rating from the National Rifle Association, said he was “very favorably disposed” to the proposal that has emerged from Sens. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. “I appreciate their work,” McCain said. “And the American people want to do what we can to prevent these tragedies. And there’s a lot more that needs to be done, particularly in the area of mental health.”

It was in McCain’s home state that a gunman with schizophrenia shot then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the head during a 2011 rampage in Tucson that left six people killed. Collins and Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois are the only two Republicans besides Toomey who are expected to vote for the compromise as of now. It will take 60 votes to pass, meaning that more Republicans will have to come on board because some Democrats from gun-friendly states are expected to oppose the measure.

Former president is grandfather DALLAS (AP) — Former President George W. Bush has become a grandfather. His twin daughter Jenna Bush Hager gave birth to her first child, a daughter, on Saturday night in New York City. The former president announced the birth in a statement Sunday. The baby’s name is Margaret Laura “Mila” (MEE’-luh) Hager. Jenna Bush Hager is a contributing correspondent for the “Today” show. She’s mar-

ried to Henry Hager. The former president says the baby was named for her grandmothers. He says he and former first lady Laura Bush met their “beautiful granddaughter today,” adding, “Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated.” This is a big month for the family. The George W. Bush Presidential Center will be dedicated April 25 on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Voters chose Sunday between the hand-picked successor who campaigned to carry on Hugo Chavez’s self-styled socialist revolution and an emboldened second-time challenger who warned that the late president’s regime has Venezuela on the road to ruin. Nicolas Maduro, the longtime foreign minister to Chavez, pinned his hopes on the immense loyalty for his boss among millions of poor beneficiaries of government largesse and the powerful state apparatus that Chavez skillfully consolidated. Maduro’s campaign was mostly a near-religious homage to the man he called “the redeemer of the Americas,” who succumbed to cancer March 5. He blamed Venezuela’s myriad woes on vague plots by alleged saboteurs that the government never identified. Challenger Henrique Capriles’ main campaign weapon was to simply emphasize “the incompetence of the state,” as he put it to reporters Saturday night. Maduro, 50, was favored to win, and two hours after polls closed his campaign manager, Jorge Rodriguez, used a news conference to summon supporters to the presidential palace from which Maduro has governed since being sworn in as acting president upon Chavez’s death. Capriles urged supporters in a Tweet not to be “desperate and defeated,” saying results were still coming in from across Venezuela. Maduro’s big lead in opinion polls was cut in half over the past two weeks in a country struggling with the legacy of Chavez’s management of the world’s largest oil reserves. Millions of Venezuelans were lifted out of poverty under Chavez, but many also believe his government not only squandered, but plundered, much of the $1 trillion in oil revenues during his tenure. Venezuelans are afflicted by chronic power outages, crumbling infrastructure, unfinished public works projects, double-digit inflation, food and medicine shortages, and rampant crime. Venezuela has one of the world’s highest homicide and kidnapping rates. “We can’t continue to believe in messiahs,” said Jose Romero, a 48-year-old industrial engineer who voted for Capriles in the central city of Valencia. “This country has learned a lot and today we know that one person can’t fix everything.”

Balance therapy program available VERSAILLES — The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center has announced a therapy program for those suffering from balance disorders. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is designed to address balance, dizziness, and overall fitness of the patient. Two therapists at Versailles Health Care Center have been specially trained to address these disorders. VRT has been demon-

strated to be a highly effective treatment for most individuals with vestibular or central balance system disorders. It is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous compensation for inner ear deficits. When the vestibular organs are damaged by disease or injury, the brain can no longer rely on them for accurate information about the equilibrium and motion, often resulting in dizziness,

vertigo, balance problems, and other symptoms. Many people are able to recover from these symptoms on their own after a few weeks of normal activity because the brain has adapted with a process called vestibular compensation. However, if the vestibular compensation process is not successful, a person’s ability to maintain posture and coordinate balance may become overly dependent on

input from the eyes and muscles and joints. In addition, the person may develop new patterns of head and body movement in an attempt to avoid dizziness and nausea. These strategies can make vestibular compensation even more difficult, worsening symptoms and often causing headache, muscle tension, and fatigue. For information, call Shannon Condon at 5260130.

During the past year, participants engaged government officials, activists, media insiders and farm leaders on pressing local, state and national issues. Among the topics were government structure and spending, regulations, the environment, animal welfare, international trade and public relations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ohio Farm Bureau is committed to the success of AgriPOWER and believes that there has never been a more important time for people to stand up for agriculture and tell their stories,â&#x20AC;? said Sandy Kuhn, AgriPOWER director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really the purpose of AgriPOWER as graduates are trained to become the future leaders and advocates for agriculture." Prior to graduation, participants developed goals for using their training to effectively impact public policy. At graduation, AgriPOWER Class V presented Kuhn with a scholarship to help with the funding of Class VI. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have truly learned the power of paying forward,â&#x20AC;? Kuhn replied. In addition to OFBF, AgriPOWER partners include Nationwide Insurance, Ohio Soybean Council, Southern Ohio Agricultural and Community Development Foundation, Farm Credit Services of Mid-America, Ohio Pork Producers Council, Ohio Sheep and Wool Program, Ohio Sheep Improvement Association, Ohio Cattlemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association, Ohio Beef Council, AgriPOWER alumni, AgriPOWER Class IV, Ohio Poultry Association, Ag Credit ACA and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.

It NAMELESS: sounds to me like you’re making the right decision. Yes, I do believe you can learn to love someone who has a good heart and loves you very much, just as you can fall out of love with someone who once swept you off your feet. The key is working on your relationship and being honest, open and caring. “Love” can be a fickle, flickering and sometimes foolish emotion. That seems to be the kind of love you have felt in the past — for guys who treated you like dirt. I applaud you for choosing to

break that pattern in your life and vow to love a decent, caring man who loves you very much. There is another kind of love, which is stable, deep and long lasting. This love grows over time. I wish this kind of love for you and your fiance and am confident you will attain it. Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, April 16, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your home routine will be interrupted today. Small appliances might break down, or minor breakages could occur. Be patient if domestic arguments break out, especially with females. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel emotionally impulsive today, which is why this is an accident-prone day for you. Your emotional distraction could make something go wrong. Nevertheless, you can do some practical planning. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Keep an eye on your money today, because you might find money or lose it. You also might lose something you own or have it stolen. Stay alert! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Difficulties with authority figures might arise today because of power struggles. Be careful. Don’t throw your weight around. Instead, make plans for future social events or sports activities. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Because you feel restless, this could be an accident-prone day for you. If you try to research or work behind the scenes, you will accomplish a lot. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Minor upsets might occur with others in group situations, especially females. Don’t be pushy. Go with the flow. Discussions about future plans could be solid. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) While making long-range plans for your career, particularly practical plans, you might have a dispute with a partner or close friend. Just let it blow over. Focus on your future. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Travel plans might be changed or canceled today. Ditto for anything having to do with higher education. Avoid disputes about religion, politics and racial issues. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Stay in touch with your bank account, because something unusual might occur. (You might bounce a check.) Stay on top of things; a little research will help things from getting worse. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You have to compromise with others because the Moon is opposite your sign. Talk to someone older to get his or her advice. Be patient with family. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your work routine will be interrupted today because computer crashes, power outages and staff shortages are likely. However, discussions with bosses and experienced employees are beneficial. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might be overcharged for a social event or something related to vacations, hotels and sports. Keep your eyes open. An older relative can benefit you in the care of children. YOU BORN TODAY You have a great sense of humor and are obliging with others. You enjoy a good laugh. You’re loyal to friends and family; nevertheless, you have to follow your fantasies and dreams. Other people might dismiss your dreams, but you shouldn’t. They’re real. Good news. Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. (Dream big!) Birthdate of: Charlie Chaplin, actor/director; Dusty Springfield, singer; Pope Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus.

You are not a built-in baby sitter, which appears to be how you have been made to feel, but nothing will change until you broach the subject. DEAR ABBY: I feel fortunate to find myself with the love of my life at 24. “Josh” is charming, intelligent, a hard worker and a wonderful partner. I know we can achieve all the things we hope for. We have discussed where we stand on issues such as children, family, finances, living arrangements, etc. We are mostly compatible, and where there is tension, we work it through and compromise. We are clearly headed toward engagement. He has picked out a ring and I want it badly, but I am hesitant. I am afraid I won’t give him what he deserves. I dated a man in college for three years. We talked about our future, made plans, and then I changed my mind. The pain I caused was terri-

I don’t think I will, but who can see the future? My mother says I have always been obsessed with making the right choice. Am I being foolish and letting my anxieties run away with me? — SUSAN IN CONNECTICUT DEAR SUSAN: There are better ways to cope with your anxiety than “throwing the baby out with the bathwater.” You are not the same person you were in college. You have grown and are obviously more aware of the consequences of your actions. Because you are anxious about making a commitment to “the love or your life” — someone with whom you have many things in common — it’s time to schedule an appointment with a licensed counselor to discuss it. It will be time and money well spent.

WAIANAE, Hawaii (AP) — A Hawaii fisherman has an unbelievable fishing tale: a close encounter with a 9-foot shark that jumped dangerously near his kayak. But, he has the video to prove it. Isaac Brumaghim, 37, was kayak fishing off the Waianae Coast Sunday when the shark sprang up and chomped on the tuna he was fighting to reel in for a tournament. "He exploded under my kayak, his dorsal hit my kayak," Brumaghim said Thursday. "It was just like a rush."

Many thoughts ran through his head: fear, excitement and disappointment at losing a big catch. "The shark scared me," he said. "But I really needed that fish for my job." The next thought after the rush subsided: "I hope I got that on camera." He often goes fishing with a camera mounted to his kayak. At home, he watched the footage and posted it online, not expecting it to generate the attention it's getting. Reporters nationwide are calling. Many are still skeptical, accusing him of doctoring the footage.

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.

West Troy is looking for a Shift Supervisor responsible for supervising the production floor; including responsibility for quality & efficiency performance.

REPLAY 50 years ago April 15, 1963 Tom Schwenzer slugged out a 618 series, built with a 239 game, to pace the frontrunning Wooden Shoe Inn to a 3-1 conquest of seventh-place Stamco Coilers at Ray Ann Lanes in New Bremen. Don Fledderjohn fired a 233 for the losers.

25 years ago April 15, 1988 Minster’s Dave Huecker keeps attacking his own records as he performs for the Minster boys track team. Thursday night at home against Celina. Huecker again set a new record, soaring a phenomenal 23-1 in the long jump for one of two new school records set at the meet. The other was by Joe Prenger of Minster, who sped to a 23.3 clocking in the 200 dash.

10 years ago April 15, 2003 Sarah Schulze, an eighth grader at Anna, turned in an amazing effort in the 800 meter run during a junior high track and field meet Monday at Anna. Schulze won the 100, 400 and 800 events, but it was in the 800 that she turned a few heads.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “It was an area we weren’t very good at last year, and we have to get better at it. If we can figure that out, I would be disappointed if we don’t have the best offense in the Big Ten.” —Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer on his team’s passing game after Saturday’s Scarlet and Gray game held in Cincinnati’s Paul Brown Stadium.

Scott wins in playoff AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Adam Scott finished the job this time, and put an end to more than a half-century of Australian misery at the Masters. With the two biggest putts of his career, Scott holed a 20footer for birdie on the 18th hole of regulation that put him into a playoff with Angel Cabrera, and then won his first major championship Sunday with a 12-footer for birdie on the second extra hole. Scott leaned back and thrust his arms in the air after the putt dropped on the 10th hole, a celebration for all of Australia and personal redemption for himself. It was only last summer when Scott threw away the British Open by making bogey on his last four holes to lose by one shot to Ernie Els. The 32-year-old handled that crushing defeat with dignity and pledged to finish stronger given another chance. “Next time — I’m sure there will be a next time — I can do a better job of it,” he said that day. Scott was close to perfect, and he had to be with Cabrera delivering some brilliance of his own. Moments after Scott made his 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 3-under 69 to take a one-shot lead ‚Äî “C’mon, Aussie!” he screamed — Cabrera answered with an

ADAM SCOTT and his caddie Steve Williams reacts to his putt dropping on the second hole of a playoff to win the Masters golf tournament Sunday in Augusta. Runner-up Angel Cabrera watches in the background. approach that plopped down 3 feet from the cup, one of the greatest shots under the circumstances. That gave him an easy birdie and a 2-under 70. They both chipped close for par on the 18th in the first playoff hole, and Cabrera’s 15-

foot birdie putt on the 10th grazed the right side of the cup. With his long putter anchored against his chest, Scott’s putt was true all the way. The Masters was the only major an Australian had

never won, and Scott was among dozens of golfers who routinely rose in the early hours of Monday morning for the telecast, only to watch a horror show. The leading character was Greg Norman, who had four good chances to win, none better than when he blew a six-shot lead on the last day to Nick Faldo in 1996. There was Jim Ferrier in 1952, Bruce Crampton 20 years later, and Scott and Jason Day only two years ago. Norman, though, was the face of Aussie failures at the Masters, and Scott paid him tribute in Butler Cabin before he slipped on that beautiful green jacket. “Australian is a proud sporting nation, and this is one notch in the belt we never got,” Scott said. “It’s amazing that it came down to me today. But there’s one guy who inspired a nation of golfers, and that’s Greg Norman. He’s been incredible to me and all the great golfers. Part of this belongs to him.” Scott was just as gracious in victory as he was last summer at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He and Cabrera flashed a thumbs-up to each other after their shots into the 10th hole in the playoff, and they walked off the 10th green with their arms around each other when it was over.

Minster teams first at Anna ANNA — Minster ran away with both team titles in the annual Anna Invitational track meet held Saturday. The Lady Wildats had 159.5 points to win by 28.5 over runner-up West LibertySalem. The Minster boys rolled up 199.5, well over 100 more than second place. There were two meet records set. Fairlawn’s Olivia Cummings heaved the shot put 42feet, 3.25 inches to break the old record of 42-2 set back in 2005 by Shea Dirterick of Convoy Crestview. And Minster’s AJ Huelsman cleared 13-feet, 9-inches in the pole vault to break to old mark of 13-6, held by both Justin Gusching of Minster and Dustin Reisinger of Houston. The Minster girls again performed well in the relays, winning three of them, including the 400, 1600 and 3200. The Lady Wildcats were second in the 800 relay.

CINCINNATI REDS’ Shin-Soo Choo (17) hits a tworun double off Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Phil Irwin in the second inning of a baseball game in Pittsburgh Sunday. Pirates catcher Michael McKenry, right, looks on.

Pirates rally to sweep Reds PITTSBURGH (AP) — Michael McKenry knows he isn’t going to get many curtain calls as a backup catcher. So he savored the moment Sunday when he called out of the dugout following his second home run of the day, a drive that tied the game as the Pittsburgh Pirates overcame a fiverun, seventh-inning deficit to beat the Cincinnati Reds 10-7. “Neil Walker pushed me out of the dugout and told me to go to tip my cap,” McKenry said. “It was special. It’s good to have good teammates who want you to get recognized,and it’s great to have the fans be so supportive and cheer that hard for you. A guy in my position, you just don’t expect it.” McKenry got his curtain call after his tworun drive made it 6-6 in a six-run eighth inning against Jonathan Broxton (0-1). McKenry had the first two-homer game of his four-year major league career, and Starling Marte hit a tiebreaking two-run drive. Cincinnati has lost five straight, its longest slide since last Aug. 5-9. The Pirates swept the Reds for the first time since April 16-18, 2010, in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh trailed 5-0 when McKenry homered off Mat Latos leading off the seventh. Travis Snider’s RBI double off the top of the right-field wall — upheld after a video review — chased Latos, Andrew McCutchen doubled in a run against Logan Ondrusek and pinch-hitter Gaby Sanchez had an RBI single off Manny Parra. “The home run gave us some hope,” Snider said. “We hit some balls hard early in the game and didn’t have anything to show for it, but then Latos started making a lot of tough pitches. We hung with it, though, and it’s a testament to the character of this team.” Latos said McKenry hit a good pitch. “It was low and in the zone,” Latos said. “He did what he was supposed to do, and you’ve got to give him credit.” Jack Hannahan’s pinch RBI single off Jared Hughes (1-0) boosted Cincinnati’s lead to 6-4 in the eighth, but Broxton walked Pedro Alvarez leading off the bottom half and McKenry’s second homer tied it. Jose Tabata walked with one out, and Marte’s first home run of

the season gave the Pirates an 8-6 lead. “You just don’t expect to do that kind of damage against pitchers Latos and Broxton,” McKenry said. “They’re very good pitchers, and Latos has been particularly tough on us. I didn’t know if we’d get to him the way he was pitching.” Pitcher Jonathan Sanchez pinch hit for Hughes and reached on Broxton’s third walk of the inning and scored on Gaby Sanchez’s sacrifice fly. Neil Walker added an RBI single. Pittsburgh’s three homers doubled its total this season. The Pirates have 32 runs during a 51 spurt after scoring eight in a 1-5 start. The two homers and six runs allowed tied career highs for Broxton, a nine-year veteran. Reds manager Dusty Baker attributed Broxton’s struggles to rustiness as he had not pitched in a week. “He warmed up three times yesterday just to try to stay sharp,” Baker said. “We need to get him some work. We need to start getting some more leads so we can get him in there more often.” Walker had three hits for Pittsburgh, while Snider hit two doubles, and Marte and McCutchen had two hits each. Cincinnati’s Brandon Phillips drove in three runs on a pair of singles, a day after attending his grandfather’s funeral. Cincinnati’s Shin-Soo Choo had two hits and has reached base in all 12 games this season. Todd Frazier broke an 0for-16 slump with a third-inning single and Chris Heisey ended a string of 14 hitless atbats with a single in the second. The Reds’ Joey Votto led off the ninth with his first home run since June 24. He also drew three walks. Latos gave up three runs and nine hits in 6 23 innings. He is 4-0 with a 2.55 ERA in 10 starts dating to August and has 48 strikeouts in 45 innings during seven career starts against the Pirates. “It’s a tough loss, the toughest one we’ve had in a long time,” Baker said. “That was a rough day for all of us.” NOTES: The Reds are were expected to update RHP Johnny Cueto’s injury status today; he left Saturday night’s game in the fifth inning with a strained right triceps.

Busch wins Texas race FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Kyle Busch was just trying to maintain the pace behind Martin Truex Jr. while waiting for his chance. The No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing team pounced when the yellow flag came out with 21 laps to go at Texas Motor Speedway. Busch finally regained the lead on pit road during that caution then held on for the final 16 laps after the last restart Saturday night in the Sprint Cup race, completing a NASCAR weekend sweep. “As soon as that caution came, my boys stepped up the plate and hit a grand slam,” said Busch, who got his 26th career cup win in his 300th start. After following Truex lap after lap, Busch came off pit road first and charged forward his Toyota forward in a strong restart. It was the second time this season, and a NASCAR-record seventh time in his career, that Busch won Cup and Nationwide races in the same weekend. He was the polesitter Saturday night, and won the Nationwide race Friday night on the 1½-mile, high-banked track.

Did You Know?

Asteroids are small, rocky bodies that have been left over from the formation of the planets 4.5 billion years ago. They are often known as “minor planets.” There are thought to be billions of these chunks of rock. Most of them lie in a doughnut-shaped “main belt“ between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. On the inner edge of this main belt, asteroids take about three years to orbit the sun. Those near the outer limit of the main belt take twice as long. The word “asteroid“ means “starlike,“ They were given this name because they can only be seen as points of light in most telescopes. By the early 20th century, astronomers were calling them the “vermin of the skies.“ They were visible in such large numbers that they were spoiling photographs of distant galaxies and nebulas. The largest of the asteroids, Ceres, was the first to be discovered. It was found by Giuseppi Piazzi from Palermo, Sicily, on Jan. 1, 1801. This was followed by Juno (1804) and A second minor planet – Pallas – Vesta (1807). Since 1847, not a year was found by Wilhelm Olbers in 1802.

• Asteroids vary greatly in size, some feature diameters as small as ten meters while others stretch out over hundreds of kilometers. Note that objects under 10 meters in diameter are generally regarded as meteoroids. • The first asteroid was discovered in 1801 by Italian astronomer Giuseppe Piazzi. Named Ceres, it features a diameter of

Ceres was given dwarf planet status in 2006, along with Pluto, Eris, Makemake and Haumea. • The asteroid belt lies roughly between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter in the solar system. It is home to a large amount of irregular shaped asteroids that range in size from dust through to the dwarf planet Ceres.
