Senate votes to delay P.O. closings Bill now goes to House BY HOPE YEN Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate offered a lifeline to the nearly bankrupt U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday, voting to give the struggling agency an $11 billion cash infusion while delaying controversial decisions on closing post offices and ending Saturday delivery. By a 62-37 vote, senators approved a measure which had divided mostly along ruralurban lines. Over the past several weeks, the bill was modified more than a dozen times, adding new restrictions on closings and cuts to service that rural-state senators said would hurt their communities the most. The issue now goes to the House, which has yet to consider a separate version of the bill. “The Postal Service is an iconic American institution that still delivers 500 million pieces of mail a day and sustains 8 million jobs,” said Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., a bill co-sponsor. “This legislation will change the USPS so it can stay alive throughout the 21st century.” The mail agency, however, criticized the measure, saying it fell far short in stemming financial losses. Postmaster

Fate of Pemberton post office undecided PEMBERTON — Area residents are hopeful the U.S. Senate bill aimed at restricting closings of rural post offices will once again spare Pemberton’s post office. The local office, one of 120 facilities under review for closure or consolidation in 2011, received a five-month reprieve from the U.S. Postal Service at that time in response to requests made by Senate leaders. Contacted Thursday morning, Pemberton Postmaster Judy Johnson said she had received no word on the local office’s status. A spokesman at the area Postal Services Consumer Affairs Office also said “nothing has yet been decided.” The Senate bill, if adopted, would establish a one-year moratorium on the closing of rural post offices, and cut in half the number of processing centers targeted for closure. It would also allow more areas to maintain overnight, firstclass delivery for three years. The original meeting concerning Pemberton’s post office took place Oct. 4. General Patrick Donahoe said if the bill became law, he would have to return to Congress in a few years to get emergency help. “It is totally inappropriate in these economic times to keep unneeded facilities open. There is simply not enough mail in our system today,” the Postal Service’s board of governors said in a statement. “It is also inappropriate to delay the implementation of five-day delivery.” The Senate bill would halt the immediate closing of up to 252 mail-processing centers and 3,700 post offices, part of a postal cost-cutting plan to save

some $6.5 billion a year. Donahoe previously said he would begin making cuts after May 15 if Congress didn’t act, warning that the agency could run out of money this fall. The measure would save about half the mail processing centers the Postal Service wants to close, from 252 to 125, allowing more areas to maintain overnight first-class mail delivery for at least three more years. It also would bar any shutdowns before the November elections, protect rural post offices for at least a year, give affected communities new avenues to appeal closing decisions and forbid cuts to

The Shelby County Engineer’s Office is planning road resurfacing and bridge work on county roadways this summer. The county is planning to resurface 18.2 miles of roads: • A little more than three miles of County Road 25A will be resurfaced from Ohio 119 to Ohio 274. • The county will also resurface almost two miles of Kettlersville Road from Ohio 274 to Botkins Road. • A quarter of a mile of Lock-Two Road at Kettlersville Road will also be resurfaced. • The county also will resurface Hardin-Wapakoneta Road from Ohio 705 to Ohio 29, Miller Road from Ohio 47 to Fort Recovery Road, Brandewie Road from Ohio 705 to Dirksen Road, Logan-Shelby Road from a half mile south of Johnston Road to the CSX Railroad, McCartyville Road from Hoying Road to Ohio 119 and Tawawa-Maplewood Road from Miami-Shelby Road East to South Street. The total cost estimated for the resurfacing project is $1,352,653.07. The county will also replace bridges and culverts. There are six projects under contract. These projects are ones that the county seeks bids on and awards the contract to a construction firm. The bridges under contract are: • Russia-Versailles Road between Kelch and Rangeline Roads. • Tawawa-Maplewood Road north of Sidney-Plattsville Road. • Tawawa-Maplewood Road south of Deweese Road. • Dingman-Slagle Road between North and South TawawaMaplewood Road.

Saturday delivery for two years. At the same time, the Postal Service would get an infusion of roughly $11 billion, basically a refund of overpayments made in previous years to a federal retirement fund. That would give it immediate liquidity to pay down debt to forestall bankruptcy and finance buyouts to 100,000 postal employees. The agency could make smaller annual payments into a future retiree health benefits account, gain flexibility in trimming worker compensation benefits and find additional ways to raise postal revenue under a new chief innovation officer. Other bill provisions would: • Place a one-year moratorium on closing rural post offices and then require the mail agency to take rural issues into special consideration. Post offices generally would be protected from closure if the closest mail facility was more than 10 miles away. The exception would be cases in which there was no significant community opposition. • Shut five of the seven post offices on the Capitol grounds. • Take into account the impact on small businesses before closing mail facilities. • Cap postal executive pay through 2015 at $199,000, the same level as a Cabinet secretary, and create a system under which the top people at the Postal Service are paid based on performance.

Deisher, longtime editor Deputies seek man of Coin World, retires Beth Deisher, longestserving editor of Coin World, retires today after 27 years at the helm of the numismatic publication and 31 years with Amos Press. A news release from the Sidney-based company quotes Deisher as saying she’s retiring to open a new chapter in her life. Replacing her is Steven R. Roach, 32, the publication’s associate editor since 2009 and a monthly Coin World columnist since 2006. Deisher, who resides in Bellefontaine with her husband, Art, joined the Coin World staff in 1981 as news editor before becoming its editorial team leader. Her first assignment with Amos Press Inc. was as news editor of the Sidney Daily News, which she joined in 1977.



A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Deisher began her career in professional journalism in 1969 as a staff writer for the Ledger-Star, an afternoon daily newspaper in Norfolk, Va. Before coming to Ohio, she served as a communication specialist with the Virginia Education Association, editing a monthly newsletter and serving as a features editor of the Virginia Journal of Education.

She is author of “Making the Grade — A Grading Guide to the Top 50 Most Widely Collected U.S. Coins,” has supervised six editions of “Coin World’s Almanac” and was founding editor of “Coin World’s Guide to U.S. Coins, Prices and Value Trends,” published annually since 1989. Coin World today reaches 365,000 collectors each month through print, web and mobile technology. Steve Roach is the fourth editor to lead Coin World’s editorial staff in the hobby publication’s 52-year history. Steve Collins, vice president, operations, of Amos Hobby Publishing, announced Roach’s promotion Monday. During the past three years, Roach has led the company’s Coin Values

pricing analyst team and has written the weekly Market Analysis column. In addition, he has covered legislative and legal issues. Roach received his undergraduate degree with high honors in art history from the University of Michigan and also earned a law degree from The Ohio State University. Early in his career, Roach served as a senior coin grader and later as director of the trusts and estates department at Heritage Auctions in Dallas. He is a 29-year member of the American Numismatic Association, which named him Outstanding Young Numismatist of the Year in 1997. Roach says he has been reading Coin World since he was a 10-year-old coin collector.

Council decided to place the levy on the ballot to help take the cost from the village. “We’ve been paying for it out of the village fund,” said mayor David Clem. “With a decrease in local government funds from the state, we know the budget will get tighter.” The village is also planning an income survey and will be working with the Shelby County Regional Planning Commission. Council members are planning on collecting the income information but no one in the village will look at the figures. “This survey is for community block grant funding,” said council member Steve Butterfield. “Once you do this, it should be good for five years.” By completing the survey, it will allow the village to know if it qualifies for funding. According to Clem, it will also benefit the fire department if the department decides to apply for a grant. The fire department is also in the planning stages of a mini-community festival, which is scheduled for Sept. 1. Council entered into executive session to discuss personnel issues before adjourning.

Lesbian Scout leader Man charged ousted; parents upset in road-rage BY JOHN SEEWER Associated Press The first-graders in Ohio Pack 109’s Tiger Scouts didn’t know or care their den mother was a lesbian — at least not until the Boy Scouts of America threw her out over the organization’s ban on gays. Now, parents who were aware of Jennifer Tyrrell’s sexual orientation well before she took the boys on campouts and helped them carve race cars for the annual Pinewood Derby have rallied to her defense in a case that has re-ignited the debate over the Scouts’ policy. “I teach my children to judge people on their actions,” said Rob Dunn, a father in Bridgeport, a village of about 2,000 across the Ohio River from Wheeling, W.Va. “Whether you agree with their lifestyle or not.” The Boy Scouts of America, whose oath calls for members to be

“morally straight,” maintains that as a private organization it has the right to exclude gays and atheists from its ranks. That stance was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 but has led many state and local governments to deny support for the Scouts. Male scout leaders who are gay have long been barred, but instances of women being excluded are not welldocumented and probably rare. A lesbian couple in Vermont were told two years ago that they could no longer be involved with their son’s Scout troop. Because of the policy, Tyrrell said she only reluctantly allowed her 7year-old son to join up in Bridgeport, where she lives with her partner and their four children. Told, she said, by the local cub master that it didn’t matter that she is a lesbian, she was drafted to lead the pack in September.

IN THIS Wednesday photo, Jennifer Tyrrell walks across a street with her son Cruz Burns, 7, during a visit to New York. Tyrrell traveled to New York from her home in Bridgeport to build momentum for a petition to overturn what she says are Ohio Boy Scout’s anti-gay policies, after she was removed as den leader for her son’s Cub Scout troop.

Private development panel in legal limbo COLUMBUS (AP) — A private economic development agency created by Gov. John Kasich to move “at the speed of business” has been slowed to a near halt in obtaining its start-up money as it awaits the outcome of a lawsuit. A bond sale that JobsOhio expected to complete in the first quarter has not yet taken place, leaving it without $100 million it would have used to create business incentives. The delay also has left the state without the first $500 million it would get under a deal requiring it to transfer 25 years of

profits from state liquor sales to JobsOhio in exchange for the upfront bond money. The deal could raise as much as $1.4 billion for the state. Despite the hurdles, Ohio has added or retained 100,000 jobs in the past year, a quarter of what it lost during the previous four years. Kasich ties the progress to the new approach. At the same time, Kasich, JobsOhio’s financial guru Mark Kvamme and budget director Tim Keen all have been cautioning state lawmakers not to look at a projected $265 million budget

surplus as real money. Unless the bond deal is done by the end of the fiscal year on June 30, Keen testified recently, the state’s apparently rosy budget picture could quickly turn south. Attorney General Mike DeWine has thrown a further wrench into things by raising new questions about the public records rules lawmakers are debating for JobsOhio. He says broad wording in a bill that cleared the Ohio House on Wednesday and has headed to the Senate could turn otherwise public records private.

Bin Laden family goes ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani authorities deported Osama bin Laden’s three widows and his children to Saudi Arabia early Friday, less than a week before the first anniversary of the unilateral American raid that killed the al-Qaida leader in his hideout in a military town. The departure of the family closed another chapter in an affair that cemented Pakistan’s reputation as a hub of Islamist extremism and cast doubt on its trustworthiness as a Western ally. Once outside Pakistan, the wives may be willing to share any information they have about how bin Laden managed to evade capture in the country for nearly a decade following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks in the United States.

Troopers made errors TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida Highway Patrol sergeant opposed reopening a fog- and smokeshrouded interstate highway, but he was overruled by a higher-ranking officer shortly before a series of crashes killed 11 people, state investigators said in a report released Thursday. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded state troopers made errors but found no criminal violations. Early in the morning of Jan. 29, wildfire smoke mixed with fog blanketed six-lane Interstate 75 near Gainesville where it cuts through Paynes Prairie State Park, a low area that lacks billboards or other lighting.

Boehner, Dems clash WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner accused President Barack Obama on Thursday of conduct “beneath the dignity of the White House.” The top House Democrat said Boehner considers the health of women “a luxury.” In a measure of the sharp elbows both parties are throwing this election year, note that those words were exchanged over legislation whose basic purpose they say they agree on: preventing interest rates on millions of federal student loans from doubling to 6.8 percent this summer. Their chief remaining dispute is how to pay for the $5.9 billion cost of keeping those rates low. When it comes to that, each side has in effect taken a political hostage: House Republicans would cut spending from Obama’s health care overhaul law, Senate Democrats would boost payroll taxes on owners of some private corporations and House Democrats would erase federal subsidies to oil and gas companies.

OUT OF THE BLUE Eternal flame snuffed out BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) — When is an “Eternal Flame” not eternal? In Kyrgyzstan, it’s when you don’t pay the gas bill. A utilities company in the economically struggling former Soviet nation has turned off the gas supply to a major war memorial in the capital, Bishkek, after city authorities failed to clear a $9,400 debt. The episode reflects the dismal financial state of the Central Asian nation, which has been wracked for years by political unrest and a sluggish economy.

Charles Taylor conviction sends warning to tyrants BY MIKE CORDER Associated Press

AP Photo/Peter Dejong, Pool

FORMER LIBERIAN President Charles Taylor takes notes as he waits for the start of a hearing to deliver verdict in the court room of the Special Court for Sierra Leone in Leidschendam, near The Hague, Netherlands, Thursday.

LEIDSCHENDAM, Netherlands (AP) — Former Liberian President Charles Taylor became the first head of state since World War II to be convicted by an international war crimes court, a historic verdict that sends a message that tyrants worldwide will be tracked down and brought to justice. The warlord-turned-president was found guilty on Thursday of 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity for arming Sierra Leone rebels in exchange for “blood diamonds” mined by slave laborers and smuggled across the border. Judges at the Special Court for Sierra Leone said Taylor played a crucial role in allowing the rebels to continue a bloody rampage during that West African nation’s 11-year civil war, which ended in 2002 with more than 50,000 dead. Ten years after the war ended, Sierra Leone is still struggling to rebuild. The rebels gained international notoriety for hacking off the limbs of their victims and carving their groups’ initials into opponents and even children they kidnapped, drugged and turned into killers. The rebels developed gruesome terms for the mutilations that became

their chilling trademark: They would offer their victims the choice of “long sleeves” or “short sleeves” — having their hands hacked off or their arms sliced off above the elbow. The 64-year-old Taylor will be sentenced next month after a separate hearing. The court has no death penalty and no life sentence. Judges have given eight other rebels as much as 52 years in prison. The verdict was hailed by prosecutors, victims and rights activists as a watershed moment in efforts to end impunity for leaders responsible for atrocities. The ruling “permanently locks in and solidifies the idea that heads of state are now accountable for what they do to their own people,” said David Crane, the former prosecutor who indicted Taylor in 2003 and is now a professor of international law at Syracuse University. “This is a bell that has been rung and clearly rings throughout the world. If you are a head of state and you are killing your own people, you could be next.” U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon hailed the judgment as “a significant milestone for international criminal justice” that “sends a strong signal to all leaders that they are and will be held accountable for their actions,” said U.N. deputy spokesman Eduardo del Buey.

Secret Service probe expands BY ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Expanding the prostitution investigation, the Secret Service acknowledged Thursday it is checking whether its employees hired strippers and prostitutes in advance of President Barack Obama’s visit last year to El Salvador. The disclosure came not long after the Homeland Security secretary assured skeptical senators that the recent prostitution scandal in Colombia appeared to be an isolated incident. A spokesman for the Secret Service, Edwin Donovan, said the agency was investigating allegations raised in news reports about unprofessional behavior that have emerged in the aftermath of the Colombia incident. The latest, by Seattle television station KIROTV, quoted anonymous sources as saying that Secret Service employees received sexual favors from strippers at a club in San Salvador and took prostitutes to their hotel rooms ahead of Obama’s visit to the city in March 2011. Prostitution is legal in both Colombia and El Salvador. Separately, The Washington Post this week cited unnamed “confidants” of the Secret Service officers implicated in Colombia saying senior managers had tolerated similar behavior during previous official trips. The Post described a visit to Buenos Aires in 2009 by former President Bill Clinton, whose protective detail it said included agents and uniformed officers. During that trip, the Post said, members of the detail went out for a late night of partying at strip clubs. Donovan said Thursday, “Any information brought to our attention that can be assessed as credible will be followed up on in an appropriate manner.” In a confidential message to senators, also Thursday, the Secret Service said its Office of Professional Responsibility had not received complaints about officer behavior in El Salvador but would investigate. In the message, the agency sought to cast doubt on the KIRO report, noting that it does not routinely send K-9 or explosive-detection units as part of its advance teams; KIRO said the advance team included those elements.

SOME 40,000 people stand in drizzling rain in Youngstorget square, Oslo, Norway, Thursday to participate in the singing of “Barn av Regnbuen” (“Children of the Rainbow”). The song, which was a hit of Norwegian folk singer Lillebjoern Nilsen several decades ago, has become a signature tune for the victims of the July 22, 2011, bombing and shooting massacre that killed 77 people as survivors gave tearful testimony Thursday in the trial of mass killer Anders Behring Breivik.

Thousands defy Norwegian mass killer with song BY JULIA GRONNEVET Associated Press OSLO, Norway (AP) — They gathered by the tens of thousands in the drenching rain to face down terrorism with song. Drawn by a Facebook-organized protest, Norwegians flocked to public squares across the country Thursday and rallied against far-right fanatic Anders Behring Breivik, now on trial for a bomb-and-shooting rampage that killed 77 people. They sang a Norwegian version of a Pete Seeger tune that the confessed mass killer claims has been used to brainwash the country’s youth into supporting immigration. Defiant singalongs of “Children of the Rainbow” were

staged in Oslo and other major Norwegian cities, even as the ninth day of the trial went on with survivors of Breivik’s attacks giving tearful testimony. In downtown Oslo alone, about 40,000 people raised their voices as Norwegian artist Lillebjoern Nilsen played the song, a Norwegian version of Seeger’s “My Rainbow Race.” They sang the Norwegian lyrics: “A sky full of stars, blue sea as far as you can see “An earth where flowers grow, can you wish for more? “Together shall we live, every sister, brother “Young children of the rainbow, a fertile land.” Seeger’s lyrics in the original version have a similar message of living together in

harmony. In testimony last week, Breivik mentioned the tune as an example of how he believes “cultural Marxists” have infiltrated Norwegian schools and weakened its society. The crowd later marched to the Oslo courthouse, where they laid a carpet of red and white roses on the steps and the fence. Reached at home in Beacon, N.Y., the 92-year-old Seeger told The Associated Press he had heard about the mass gathering in a phone call from Nilsen. “I said, ‘Oh that’s wonderful,’” Seeger said. “It’s a tremendous honor, really. One of the greatest honors a songwriter could have is to have a song of theirs sung in another country.”

Former Edwards aide: Donors’ cash went into NC house BY MICHAEL BIESECKER Associated Press GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — John Edwards’ ex-aide acknowledged Thursday that much of nearly $1 million in campaign supporters’ cash went to build his North Carolina dream house, not to buy the silence of the presidential candidate’s pregnant mistress. Andrew Young testified for a fourth straight day at Edwards’ campaign finance fraud trial, peppered with questions from Edwards attorney Abbe Lowell about the money from two donors that flowed into personal accounts controlled by Young and his wife. Young has said he took secret payments from wealthy donors at Edwards’ direction to help conceal the presidential contender’s affair with Rielle Hunter and keep his 2008

presidential campaign viable. Young said the checks secretly provided by a then-96-year-old heiress were mixed with the couple’s other house funds, much of which went into renovations and construction of their $1.5 million hilltop house on 10 acres near Chapel Hill, N.C. Young often deferred questions on the payments to his wife, Cheri, saying “my wife is the one who handles the finances in our family.” Young’s testimony is considered key to the prosecution’s case that while campaigning for the White House, Edwards directed a scheme to use the money from the heiress and a Texas lawyer to conceal his affair with Hunter. Young initially claimed he was the father of Hunter’s daughter and took her into his home with his wife.

We got quite a bit of wood from the trees which were uprooted in our yard earlier this spring. We also sold three of the big logs to the local sawmill. We still need to get someone to move the big tree stumps. One of the branches of the oak tree was stuck down into the ground 3 1 /2 to 4 feet. We are thankful no one was close to it when it fell. Sister Liz, Levi and four of their children stopped in on Saturday for a short visit. They had my sisters, Susan and Verena, with them. They had been to one of Levi’s brother’s in this community for dinner. They bought a covered buggy from him at an auction. Levi was taking the buggy back home to Berne, Ind. They will sell their open buggy, which they bought from us when we moved to Michigan, and use the covered one from now on. I am sure they will like it a lot better in the cold winter months and when it rains. The community in Berne has open buggies but now several churches are allowing covered buggies. When

we lived in Berne we had to drive in open buggies. I thought I would have a hard time getting used to a covered buggy. Now I think I would have to get used to driving in the open buggy during the cold winter months. We use a lot fewer coats driving in the covered buggy. When it rained, our coats would get dirty from the wheels splattering mud up on us. Some people in this community have small propane heaters in their buggies, but we still do not have one.

using their phone touchpad. Weekly reminder calls will motivate children to read, and keep students and their families focused on reading all summer long. “Russia Local School is proud to partner with Kids Read Now as a means of supporting our students to continue reading through the summer,” said Nick Wilker, principal at Russia Local School. “We know and research proves that through the summer months not all of our students read at the same pace they do through the school year. Through this program, we hope to provide that spark that will keep our students at a high pace of reading during the summer months preventing the summer slide into the following school year.”

This is the second year for Kids Read Now, which completed a pilot program in Troy City School district in 2011, achieving a 10.4 percent boost in end-of-summer reading scores for third graders. Plans for 2012 include expanding Kids Read Now to 5,000 children in 75 schools — 40 schools throughout the Miami Valley area and 35 schools in New York City, Georgia, Texas and California. In 2011, the One Call Now Foundation earmarked $1 million for Kids Read Now, providing seed money for at least five years of supFuture port. growth depends on investments from other corporations, grants, foundations and local

Life-saving screening made mandatory at Wilson BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN When Devin Stuttler was born on Oct. 29, 2007, at Wilson Memorial Hospital, he arrived as the second child of Tara and Alan Stuttler, of Wapakoneta. He looked like a healthy baby, and there were no complications in the birth. Because he was a second child, and hospital staff had no objections, Tara was preparing to take him home 18 hours after his birth, earlier than most releases. A nurse carried Devin away for a photograph. In the photograph, his color didn’t look right. The nurse took several photos, but the problem didn’t seem to be in the camera. So, just to be safe, she gave Devin a pulse oximetry screening test — and stopped getting him ready to go home. Known as a pulse ox screen, for short, the test is a noninvasive one. It involves attaching a light probe to a newborn’s right hand and either foot. The light meter reads the amount of oxygen in the baby’s blood, and that reading indicates whether a baby has congenital heart defects. In Devin’s case, the nurse discovered that his color was off because he had only half a heart. Without the test, no one would have known, and Devin would have died within a few days. Now, he is a happy, healthy 4 1/2-year-old. And Tara is an activist and grassroots lobbyist for mandating pulse ox screens by law. In the Copeland-Emerson Family Birth Center at Wilson, doctors approved a proposal by staff nurses to make the test routine. The practice began April 1. “The American Academy of Pediatrics presented an article in October 2011 advocating that all babies be screened prior to discharge,” said Jana Schnippel, staff nurse specialist at the center. “Carmen Bowling, the center director, and I got the article and presented it to the pediatricians. They all agreed. I developed a procedure for it, and it’s a standing order now.” The probe is done when a baby is 24 hours old. There have been no failures at Wilson among the 44 babies born (as of press time) since April 1. According to Bowling, adding the test to the routine procedures at the birth center has had no budgetary impact. The hospital already owned the necessary equipment, and the test required no addition of staff. Current staff were trained for the test during a regular staff meeting. And there is not much of an additional cost to patients. “There’s only a charge for the probe itself, which is less than $2,” Bowling said. Tara and Tina Walp, also of Wapakoneta, founded Pulse Ox Ohio and have been pushing Ohio legislators to make it a law for all

DEVIN STUTTLER, 4, of Wapakoneta, gets a push from his mom Tara Stuttler in their back yard Tuesday. Devin also is the son of Alan Stuttler. Ohio hospitals to institute pulse ox screens. They work with professional lobbyists with the American Heart Association. Schnippel said she is a “huge advocate. I think if we can save a baby’s life, we need to screen them before they go home.” The state of Indiana recently passed such legislation and Bowling expects that Ohio will do so soon. “If our neighbor could do it, we could,” Tara said. After Devin’s test, he underwent three surgeries at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. If babies at Wilson don’t pass the pulse ox screen, they are referred to a pediatric cardiologist at Dayton Children’s. Devin was sent there, and then his par-

ents transferred him to the Columbus facility. “We had more options for treatment in Columbus that we did at Dayton’s,” Tara said. Devin underwent surgery when he was 1 week old, when he was 5 months old and when he was 2 years old. Surgeons placed stents in his heart and used angioplasty to knock out the walls between the heart’s chambers. He takes Coumadin to prevent blood clots and his mother gives him fingerprick blood tests at home about once a month. “You would never know he had a heart problem,” she said. “He’s a social butterfly. He’s a very happy little guy.” The Stuttlers asked their doctors why Devin was born with half a heart, a condition

referred to as CHD. They wanted to know if it was because they had been exposed to something unsafe during Tara’s pregnancy. Doctors told them there was nothing they could have done to prevent it. About 1 percent of babies born in the U.S. (8 of 1,000) have CHD, some 40,000 per year. When the opportunity arose to participate in a study of genetic testing by the Ohio State University Heart and Lung Institute, Tara signed up the Stuttlers. The study looks for congenital connections regarding heart disease. Tara also has become an active online lobbyist. She blogs regularly and volunteers for the central Ohio chapter of Mended Little Hearts, a nonprofit that supports families who deal with heart problems in their children. She manages Web pages, something she also does in her day job as an account manager for NOW Marketing Group, of Lima. Alan works in technical support at Plastipak. Their other children are Craig, 8, and Jude, 1. “I created the blog so people could see what I was seeing and doing at the time (Devin was undergoing treatment),” Tara said. “You realize you don’t want anyone to go through that. Or if they do, that they’re not alone. People can call and write their local hospitals if they haven’t implemented pulse ox screens. They can write their legislators. “If you know someone who is expecting, be sure to push for your newborn to receive a pulse ox screen before discharge. It costs about the same as a hospital diaper change, and it looks like a little Band-Aid with a light on it that is put on the newborn’s toe and takes seconds to do. Every hospital nursery is equipped with one. Don’t let your newborn leave the hospital without this life-saving screen. If they deny you this test, keep pushing.”

Historical society holds annual meeting NEW KNOXVILLE — The New Knoxville Historical Society held its annual meeting on April 19. After a brief business meeting, Rachel Barber from the Auglaize County Historical Society informed members about a workshop, Gravestones for Novices, to be held on June 9, in New Knoxville at the German Reformed Cemetery. Lana Bizet, a New Knoxville

eighth-grader and Girl Scout, shared with the members her research on the history of the Girl Scouts in New Knoxville. Lana’s research was done as a requirement for the Silver Girl Scout award. Several members added comments on their experiences being Girl Scouts in the 1950s. Myron Fledderjohann and Roberta Tanzini talked about

the books that are in the Heritage Center’s library and were written by New Knoxville natives. After the meeting refreshments were served while the members visited and looked at the many recently acquired museum items on display. All five buildings of the Heritage Center will be open for the public on the last Sunday of the months May through October.

Nobody likes a ‘nark’ nius. — Brad, Toledo, Ohio. BRAD: Your parents are doing their best to motivate you to excel in math, but they are putting undue pressure on you to excel when it may not be possible for you. I’m sure they are proud of your academic achievements but are negligent in not sharing this pride with you. Do your best not to let this pressure get to you. You know you are doing your very best in math and that is the most important. Speak with your counselor or teacher and ask for a parent conference to put things into perspective. Many times parents will realize the mistake they are making when a teacher or counselor enlightens them. Your grades indicate that you are a terrific student. Keep up the good work!

I have never heard of this interference before. Are we working against ourselves? — J.H. ANSWER: Olive oil

has a mixture of many fatty acids, including oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid. Olive oil promotes heart, brain and blood vessel health. Fish oils are chiefly omega-3 fatty acids, and they do provide great benefits to health. They lower levels of triglycerides (fats in the blood and contributors to plaque buildup); they provide protection against heart disease and strokes. Many of the most recommended diets, including the Mediterranean diet, include both olive oil and fish in their lists of foods that improve health. Furthermore, many times I have seen olive oil recommended as one way to prepare fish for cooking. As far as I can see, olive oil and omega-3 fatty acids are not incompatible.

April 27, 1912 Mr. and Mrs. Wendell E. Whipp arrived in Sidney yesterday from Columbus and will make Sidney their home. Mr. Whipp will be the manager of the Monarch Machine Company. ——— Howard, the fouryear-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Griffith of North Ohio Avenue, wandered away from last evening home about 5:30 o’clock. He was found near the Tucker Woodwork plant about an hour later and was taken to the fire department. This same boy was lost Thursday night, causing considerable excitement on the northeast corner of the square. In some manner he had gotten lost from his mother. ——— At the adjourned meeting of city council last evening, the matter of street improvement about the city was discussed to some length. A proposition is before the council which is being urged by many property owners to narrow certain streets and have new cement curb and gutters put in so that the lawns may be made on the park plan. It is proposed that North Street and Main Avenue be made 40 feet wide, while Walnut, Michigan, Forest and Grove Streets be 28 feet wide.

75 Years April 27, 1937 Chief of Police O’Leary warned local motorists today that effective tomorrow, the city ordinance against double parking will be rigidly enforced in the city. All cars found doubled parked will be towed to a local garage and the owner required to pay the tow-in charge. All cars must also be parked properly between the lines and any found parked on or across the lines will also be pulled in.

50 Years April 27, 1962 Gus Palmisano plastered the maples with outstanding consistency during the Minor League round at Bel Mar Lane on Friday evening. The Sidney Daily News employee chalked up games of 212, 203, and 213 for a 628 series, as the thirdplace Johnson’s Restau-

rant blanked the basement-sitting Sidney Sand and Gravel crew, 8-0, with Don Voorhees getting a 236 for the losers. ——— A crazy, mixed-up mother bunny became confused Easter morning and instead of leaving eggs at the Dale Anspach home, 118 Edgewood Street, left a litter of six baby bunnies. (Note to adult readers: The mother bunny was actually killed by a dog roaming the neighborhood). Mrs. Anspach knew what to do. Armed with a medicine dropper she began to feed the bunnies with warm milk. Anspach and the son prepared a box for the babies, even transplanting furnishings from the bunny home at the foot of a tree in their front yard. The Anspachs plan to release the bunnies to a farm they have picked because the owner also likes bunnies and refuses anyone permission to hunt.

25 Years April 27, 1987 Bob Sargeant, a Sidney resident vacationing at Marco Island, Fla., caught a six-foot, 225-pound Jewfish about 22 miles southwest of Marco Island in the Gulf of Mexico recently. John Gariety, a Summit Street resident, and his wife Louise were fishing with when he Sargeant hooked the huge fish in about 65 feet of water, using pin fish for bait. ——— Juniors and seniors at Russia High School dined, danced and crowned a king and queen during prom festivities Saturday at the Russia Community Center. The hall was decorated in keeping with the selected theme “Ice Castles.” Debra Luthman received the queen’s crown from the 1987 king, David Meyer. Meyer was crowned by junior class president Jeffrey Prenger.

Because it is clear that you are closer to the husband than the wife, perhaps you should tip him off that it’s still not too late for them to do the right thing and suggest he help her with them. DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced from my wife for almost a year, with another year of separation preceding that. We divorced because of arguments, not because of abuse, adultery or substance abuse issues. The divorce actually seemed to take on a life of its own. Because I have a small son with her, I desperately want to attempt a recon-

ciliation. She is reticent about it, however, mainly because I believe she’s getting pressure from her family. How can I persuade her to go out with me so we can rekindle the spark we once shared? — MISSING MY OLD LIFE DEAR MISSING: Before a couple can successfully reconcile, they must first resolve the problems that caused the separation in the first place. That would be the way to begin. However, are you aware that not once in your letter did you say that you still love your exwife? If the reason you want to “rekindle the spark” is that you miss being with your child and the comforts of being married — but not her — then I don’t think you have much chance of success.

NEW YORK (AP) — A puppy named Byrdie delayed several flights at New York's LaGuardia Airport when she escaped from her crate and frolicked around a busy runway. The Port Authority says the 30-pound Rhodesian ridgeback scampered around the runway for about 10 minutes on Wednesday while

authorities unsuccessfully tried to collar her. The agency says they had to find the pooch's owner aboard the Memphis-bound Delta Air Lines Airbus to help catch it. The owner was brought out on to the runway. She called out to the 14-month-old pup and she came running to her.

Position Announcement:

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.

Bengals pick CB CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals took cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick from Alabama with the 17th overall pick in the draft, trying to fill one of their two most glaring needs. The Bengals had one of the best cornerback Kirkpatrick tandems in the NFL in Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall, but Joseph left for Houston after the 2010 season and Hall tore an Achilles tendon last year. Cincinnati got the pick from Oakland as part of the deal for quarterback Carson Palmer, which didn't turn out so well for the Raiders, who failed to reach the playoffs last season. Cincinnati also had its own pick, at No. 21, in the round. The Bengals also need to

get a receiver to complement A.J. Green, their top pick last year who reached made the Pro Bowl.

Luck, RG3 1-2 NEW YORK (AP) — Six weeks after saying goodbye to Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts handed Andrew Luck a blue and white jersey and the daunting task of leading a rebuilding team as its quarterback for the next decade. Luck couldn't have chosen a tougher act to follow — all Manning did was win an unprecedented four MVP awards and a Super Bowl for Indy. But many believe he is the most NFL-ready passer to enter the league since Manning went No. 1 overall in 1998. “You don't really replace a guy like that,” Luck said. “You can't. You just try to do the best you can. Obviously, he was my hero growing up.” His selection as the top pick

was hardly a surprise. The Colts informed the Stanford quarterback last week that Commissioner Roger Goodell would announce his name first Thursday night. Right behind him was Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner, who was taken second overall by the Washington Redskins. No suspense attached to that pick, either. After being loudly booed at the outset, Goodell told a raucous crowd at Radio City Music Hall that “the season begins tonight, so let's kick if off.” Then he did, congratulating Luck while the crowd chanted “RG3, RG3.” Luck left the stage and slapped hands with some fans in Colts shirts and headed to the interview room. To get Griffin, Washington dealt a second-round pick this year and its first-rounders in 2013 and '14 to St. Louis to move up four spots.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The Cleveland Browns weren’t going to let anyone block them from Trent Richardson. Desperate for a playmaker to ignite a sputtering offense, the Browns traded three later picks to the Minnesota Vikings and moved up one spot to select Richardson, Alabama’s explosive running back, with the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night. The dynamic Richardson should make an immediate impact on a Cleveland offense that scored just 218 points last season and had just four rushing touchdowns. The 5foot-9, 228-pound Richardson scored 21 for the national champion Crimson Tide. “He’s passionate. He’s productive. He’s durable and he’s the kind of runner we feel is going to help us get our offense together to score the points that we need to win the games that we’re going to win,” said Browns coach Pat Shurmur, who went 4-12 in a tumultuous first season. “He’s a terrific runner.” Shurmur said the Browns were convinced a team would leapfrog them to select Richardson. “We knew that as we went through the process that he was our guy,” Shurmur said. “We did what we had to do to secure it. We knew teams behind us wanted him as well. We’re thrilled.” Richardson was stunned to be taken by the Browns. “I didn’t expect to go this high,” he said after donning a Browns No. 1 jersey and baseball cap on the stage of New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Richardson seemed destined in most mock drafts to be going to the Browns at No. 4, but about an hour before the draft, Cleveland general manager Tom Heckert pulled off his trade with Minnesota. Heckert sent the Vikings picks in the fourth (No. 118), fifth (139) and seventh (211) rounds to move up and select Richardson, who rushed for 1,679 yards last season. It was a bold move by Heckert, who entered the draft with 13 selections and planned to use some of them to move if he really liked a player. Last year, Heckert passed up taking Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones at No. 6 and acquired extra picks from the Falcons. He used one of those ‚Äî No. 118 ‚Äî in the package for Richardson. During the offseason, the Browns fell short in their pursuit for quarterback Robert Griffin III. Cleveland was outbid by Washington, which selected the Heisman Trophy

winner second overall. They weren’t about to lose out on getting the best runner. “He’s a terrific player and he’s going to be a really fine addition,” Shurmur said. “He’s going to be one of those players who are fans will be able to watch run the ball for a lot of years.” The Browns also have the No. 22 pick in the first round. In New York, Richardson was joined on stage by his two young daughters. “To them, this means they never have to go through what their daddy went through,” said Richardson, recalling his mother worked “two and three jobs” while battling cancer as she raised him. Richardson is viewed as the most complete back in this year’s draft and perhaps the best since Adrian Peterson in 2007. He can run inside the tackles for tough yards and bust outside for long gains. Richardson made a strong impression on the Browns during his pro day at Alabama when he flattened Cleveland running backs coach Gary Brown during a blocking drill. “I’m pretty sure I got their attention when I knocked him down,” Richardson said in a conference call. Shurmur said he was certain Richardson should be the pick long before the 21-yearold’s workout. Earlier in the day, Browns Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown, who has been at odds with the organization for several years, called Richardson “ordinary.” However, Brown’s former team felt differently and selected a player whom they believe can help them close the gap on Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Cincinnati in the AFC North. Richardson said he wasn’t bothered by Brown’s comment. “I have a lot to play for,” he said. “I’ve got a lot to prove. I’m an ordinary human, but as a back, I’ll be a special guy.” Cleveland’s rushing game was inconsistent last season, ranking 28th overall. Peyton Hillis, who rushed for nearly 1,200 yards in 2010, was unreliable and injured. Montario Hardesty struggled with injuries for the second year in a row, and third-down specialist Brandon Jackson missed the whole season with a foot injury. When Hillis, who missed one game with strep throat and had other off-field issues, left as a free agent, it left a gaping hole in Cleveland’s ground game. Shurmur feels Richardson will plug it.

Reds lose on 9th inning homer CINCINNATI (AP) — Angel Pagan made the Giants’ long trip home a little easier. Pagan hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning Thursday, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds. “We were all pumped when I got back to the bench,” Pagan said. “We were thinking about a happy flight home.” The Giant avoided a three-game sweep and snapped a seven-game losing streak at Great American Ball Park. “It was one of those games that save your sanity,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Joaquin Arias, who was called up Wednesday when Aubrey Huff was placed on the disabled list with an anxiety disorder, led off the ninth against Cincinnati closer Sean Marshall (02) with a walk, and Ryan Theriot followed with a single. After pinch-hitter Brett Pill struck out, Pagan lofted a 1-2 pitch 386 feet into the left field seats. Pagan was ready for the curveball after striking out against Marshall on the pitch Wednesday night. “I knew he was going to throw it again,” Pagan said. “I had to make an adjustment. I swung at one in the dirt last night. This one was in the strike zone.” “The curveball’s been a good pitch for me,” said Marshall, who blew his first save after converting four opportunities. “I’ve gotten some outs with it. The ball hung in the mid-

Santiago Casilla struck out the side in the ninth for his second save. Casilla is replacing Brian Wilson, who will miss the rest of the season with an elbow injury. “You have to throw strikes.

The homer was Bruce’s first since hitting two against the Miami Marlins on April 8. Pinch-hitter Gregor Blanco came up with a sacrifice fly to cut Cincinnati’s lead to 4-3 in the seventh before Rolen’s 429-foot homer.
