Bills would ban requirements COLUMBUS (AP) — Less than two years after Ohio voters overwhelmingly rejected collective bargaining limits for government workers, Republicans in the Ohio House took the first public steps Tuesday toward passing legislation that would prohibit requiring workers to join or pay automatic dues to a union. Similar right-towork laws are in place in 24 states, including neighboring Indiana and Michigan, and state Rep. Kristina Roegner circulated a cosponsorship request saying that she wants Ohio to become the 25th. “WorkRoegner’s place Freedom” bill would apply to privatesector unions, and a companion measure from state Rep. Ron


Maag would apply to public-sector unions. Maag’s letter to fellow lawmakers said the legislation means “employees would be free to choose whether or not to join a labor union.” The measures would prohibit any requirements that employees of public or private employers join or pay dues to any employee organization. They also establish as state policy “that each employee must be fully free to decide whether to associate, organize, designate a representative, or join or assist an employee organization,” according to Maag’s memo. Democrats and labor leaders immediately leaped on the proposals as a slap to the strong majority of Ohio voters who repealed a proposed collective bargaining overhaul in

November 2011 that limited the bargaining rights of public-sector workers. Almost 62 percent of voters objected to the law. “I am just appalled by the efforts of Representatives Maag and Roegner to once again attempt to silence the voice of workers across the state of Ohio, this time in both the public and private sector,” Service Employees International Union District 1199 President Becky Williams said in a statement. “This will hurt people we trust like librarians, nurses, mental health providers, social workers and so many others.” House Democratic Leader Armond Budish called it “Senate Bill 5 all over again” — referring to the collective bargaining law.

“So-called right to work means fewer rights, not more, for working Ohioans. It would negatively impact the lives of all Ohioans, and it would particularly harm the ability of our police, firefighters and teachers to bargain for safety equipment, proper staffing levels, and class sizes, just to mention a few,” Budish said in a statement. “For example, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of workplace deaths is 51 percent higher in states with right to work.” Roegner and Maag scheduled a news conference Wednesday to discuss the bills. They set Wednesday at 9 a.m. as the deadline to sign on as a co-sponsor of one or both measures. A spokesman for Gov. John Kasich, a Republi-

can who faces re-election next year, said it was too soon to pass judgment on the legislation. “There have been nearly 300 bills introduced so far this year. We don’t weigh in on all of them and it would be premature to do so on these,” spokesman Rob Nichols said in an email. Though Kasich did not initiate Senate Bill 5, as the governor who signed it his name became closely associated with the divisive law and it damaged his popularity for a time. Thousands descended on the Ohio Statehouse to protest the bill’s passage, prompting state officials at one point to lock the doors out of concern for lawmakers’ safety. Chants opposing the bill interrupted Ka-

sich’s first State of the State speech and has not held the annual addresses in Columbus since. The earlier legislation affected more than 350,000 police, firefighters, teachers, nurses and other government workers. It set mandatory health care and pension minimums for unionized governemployees, ment banned public worker strikes, scrapped binding arbitration and prohibited basing promotions solely on seniority. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald criticized the new proposal, saying, “My promise to Ohio’s working and middle class families is that they will never have to fear these kinds of attacks if I am their governor.”


Pipeline construction across Ohio starts in May DAYTON (AP) — Construction on an underground pipeline across Ohio and sections of three more states is expected to employ up to 4,000 workers over eight months and should start in early May. The Dayton Daily News ( ) reports Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners says about 1,500 construction jobs will be in Ohio. A company spokesman says construction will start south of Dayton, and sections will be built in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Indiana. The pipeline will connect to existing lines to transport liquid petroleum products between Pennsylvania and Texas. It will cross 265 miles in at least 13 Ohio counties, including Butler, Warren, Greene, Clinton and Fayette counties in southwest Ohio. The others are Pickaway, Fairfield and Licking counties in central Ohio and Muskingum, Coshocton, Tuscarawas, Harrison and Jefferson counties in eastern Ohio.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio is establishing an official state artifact after years of persistence by classes of fourth-graders at the Columbus School for Girls. Current students from the school watched Tuesday at the Statehouse as the House unanimously approved the measure about an object called the Adena Pipe. The prehistoric effigy pipe was linked to the ancient Adena culture and was found in 1901 in a burial mound near Chillicothe. The Senate previously passed the bill, so it now heads to Gov. John Kasich. A spokesman says he’ll sign it. Fourth-graders at the school began working on the proposal in 2009, and subsequent classes kept pushing it as they learned about the legislative process and the political system. Lawmakers praised the girls for their persistence and civic involvement.

Kasich signs rules for health ‘navigators’ COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed a bill requiring training and certification for a new group of professionals who will guide consumers through new insurance markets. These so-called health navigators will help educate consumers and small businesses about the online marketplaces created by President Barack Obama’s health care law. Open enrollment starts Oct. 1. Kasich signed the measure into law Tuesday. Earlier Tuesday, Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor expressed support for the rules. Taylor leads Ohio’s insurance department. Consumer advocates have criticized the measure, saying it limits the number of navigators available to help people by tying the certification process to those funded by the health law. Ohio navigator applicants will share about $2.2 million in federal funds. Taylor says she doesn’t anticipate the state would contribute additional dollars.

Baby gorilla makes debut CINCINNATI (AP) — An abandoned baby gorilla from Texas has made its debut at the Cincinnati Zoo with some of the people who have served as its primary caregivers. The 3-month-old lowland gorilla is named Gladys Stones. She made her media debut Tuesday in a yard where she’ll spend time over the next month with her human caregivers, climbing trees and getting familiar with being outdoors. Gladys was born Jan. 29 at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas. Her mother rejected her, and she was moved to Cincinnati in February to be paired with a gorilla surrogate mother.

He’s too young to drive at 9 NEW DELHI (AP) — Police in India have arrested a man who allowed his 9-year-old son to drive his Ferrari. Mohammed Nisham was arrested on charges of endangering the life of a child and allowing a minor to drive, said Inspector Biju Kumar. He was released after posting bail of 5,000 rupees ($92), Kumar said. Nisham’s wife filmed the boy driving the sports car on his 9th birthday two weeks ago with his 5year-old brother in the passenger seat. The video was widely watched on YouTube and created an outrage across India, causing police to file charges. India’s economic boom has created a class of super-rich, whose excesses are frequently in the news. Police Inspector M.V. Verghese said the boy’s father, who has a thriving tobacco and real estate business, owns 18 cars worth an estimated $4 million. Nisham turned himself in at a police station near the port city of Kochi in the southern state of Kerala, Kumar said.

Obama hints at possible military action in Syria WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama signaled Tuesday he would consider U.S. military action against Syria if “hard, effective evidence” is found to bolster intelligence that chemical weapons have been used in the 2-year-old civil war. Among the potential options being readied for him: weapons and ammunition for the Syrian rebels. Despite such planning, Obama appealed for patience during a White House news conference, saying he needed more conclusive evidence about how and when chemical weapons detected by U.S. intelligence agencies were

used and who deployed them. If those questions can be answered, Obama said he would consider actions the Pentagon and intelligence community have prepared for him in the event Syria has crossed his chemical weapons “red line.” “There are options that are available to me that are on the shelf right now that we have not deployed,” he told reporters packed into the White House briefing room. Beyond lethal aid to the rebels, several government agencies are also drafting plans for establishing a protective “no-fly zone” over Syria and for targeted missile strikes, according to officials fa-

miliar with the planning. However, the officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations, stressed that Obama had not yet decided to proceed on any of the plans. As Obama raised the prospect of deeper U.S. involvement, Hezbollah’s leader said Tuesday that his Iranianbacked militant group stood ready to aid Syrian President Bashar Assad. And new violence in Syria hit the capital of Damascus, as a powerful bomb ripped through a bustling commercial district, killing at least 14 people.

DUTCH KING Willem-Alexander takes the oath as his wife, Queen Maxima, stands at his side during his inauguration inside the Nieuwe Kerk or New Church in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Tuesday. At 46, King Willem-Alexander is the youngest monarch in Europe and the first Dutch king in 123 years, since Willem III died in 1890.

All hail the king Willem-Alexander first Dutch king in 123 years AMSTERDAM (AP) — Millions of Dutch people dressed in orange flocked to celebrations around the Netherlands Tuesday in honor of a once-in-ageneration milestone for the country’s ruling House of Orange-Nassau: after a 33-year reign, Queen Beatrix abdicated in favor of her eldest son, Willem-Alexander. At 46, King Willem-Alexander is the youngest monarch in Europe and the first Dutch king in 123 years, since Willem III died in 1890. Like Beatrix before him, Willem-Alexander has assumed the throne at a time of social strains and economic malaise. Although the Dutch monarchy is largely ceremonial, he immediately staked out a course to preserve its relevance in the 21st century. “I want to establish ties, make connections and exem-

plify what unites us, the Dutch people,” the freshly minted king said at a nationally televised investiture ceremony in Amsterdam’s 600-year-old New Church, held before the combined houses of Dutch parliament. “As king, I can strengthen the bond of mutual trust between the people and their government, maintain our democracy and serve the public interest.” Hopes for the new monarch are high. For most of the 2000s, the country was locked in an intense national debate over the perceived failure of Muslim immigrants, mostly from North Africa, to integrate. In response, politicians curtailed many of the famed Dutch tolerance policies. More recently, this trading nation of 17 million has suf-

fered back-to-back recessions. European Union figures released Tuesday showed Dutch unemployment spiking upward toward 6.4 percent. That’s below the EU average, but a 20-year high in the Netherlands. “I am taking the job at a time when many in the kingdom feel vulnerable and uncertain,” Willem-Alexander said. “Vulnerable in their work or health. Uncertain about their income or home environment.” Amsterdam resident Inge Bosman, 38, said she doubted Willem-Alexander’s investiture would give the country much of an employment boost. “Well, at least one person got a new job,” she said. Tellingly, one of WillemAlexander’s first diplomatic missions as king will be to visit the country’s largest trading partner, Germany.

Laying bare your finances to apply for health care WASHINGTON (AP) — After a storm of complaints, the Obama administration on Tuesday unveiled simplified forms to apply for insurance under the president’s new health care law. You won’t have to lay bare your medical history but you will have to detail your finances. An earlier version of the forms had provoked widespread griping that they were as bad as tax forms and might overwhelm uninsured people, causing them to give up in frustration. The biggest change: a fivepage short form that single people can fill out. That form includes a cover page with instructions and another page if you want to designate someone to help you through the process. But the abridged application form for families starts at 12 pages, and grows as you

add children. Most people are expected to take another option, applying online. The ease or difficulty of applying for benefits takes on added importance because Americans remain confused about what the health care law will mean for them. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Tuesday found that 4 in 10 are unaware it’s the law of the land. Some think it’s been repealed by Congress. In fact, it’s still on track. And it’s a mandate, not a suggestion. The law says virtually all Americans must carry health insurance starting next year, although most will just keep the coverage they now have through their jobs, Medicare or Medicaid. At his news conference Tuesday, President Barack Obama hailed the simplified forms as an example of how

his team listened to criticism from consumer groups and made a fix. The law’s full benefits will be available to all next year, he emphasized, even if Republicans in Congress still insist on repeal and many GOP governors won’t help put it into place. When the first draft of the application turned out to be a clunker, “immediately, everybody sat around the table and said, ‘Well, this is too long, especially … in this age of the Internet,’” Obama recounted. “‘People aren’t going to have the patience to sit there for hours on end. Let’s streamline this thing.’” The flap over the application forms was a “first test” of the administration’s ability to confront problems as they emerge, said Sam Karp, vice president of programs at the California HealthCare Foundation.

MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) — Russian agents placed the elder Boston bombing suspect under surveillance during a six-month visit to southern Russia last year, then scrambled to find him when he suddenly disappeared after police killed a Canadian jihadist, a security official told The Associated Press. U.S. law enforcement officials have been trying to determine whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev was indoctrinated or trained by militants during his visit to Dagestan, a Caspian Sea province that has become the center of a simmering Islamic insurgency. The security official with the Anti-Extremism Center, a federal agency under Russia’s Interior Ministry, confirmed the Russians shared their concerns. He told the AP that Russian agents were watching Tsarnaev, and that they searched for him when he disappeared two days after the July 2012 death of the Canadian man, who had joined the Islamic insurgency in the region. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. Security officials suspected ties between Tsarnaev and the Canadian — an ethnic Russian named William Plotnikov — according to the Novaya Gazeta newspaper, which is known for its independence and investigative reporting and cited an unnamed official with the AntiExtremism Center, which tracks militants. The newspaper said the men had social networking ties that brought Tsarnaev to the attention of Russian security services for the first time in late 2010.

Hezbollah issues warning BEIRUT (AP) — The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group said Tuesday that Syrian rebels will not be able to defeat President Bashar Assad’s regime militarily, warning that Syria’s “real friends,” including his Iranian-backed militant group, were ready to intervene on the government’s side. In Damascus, a powerful bomb ripped through a bustling commercial district, killing at least 14 people and bringing Syria’s civil war to the heart of the capital for the second consecutive day. Hezbollah, a powerful Shiite Muslim group, is known to back Syrian regime fighters in Shiite villages near the Lebanon border against the mostly Sunni rebels fighting to topple Assad. The comments by Sheik Hassan Nasrallah were the strongest indication yet that his group was ready to get far more involved to rescue Assad’s embattled regime.

Can that should prevent food GERD problems be trig- and acid from going the gered by an empty stom- wrong way. Symptoms ach? may include heartburn, a

sour taste in the back of the throat, a cough or no symptoms at all. What causes GERD? Although several conditions are known to predispose a person to GERD, many people with no risk factors at all have symptoms of GERD. At least 15 percent of people have GERD symptoms in any given week. Known risks include being overweight or pregnant (increased abdominal pressure tends to push food backward), having a hiatal hernia or diabetes, and many medications, especially high blood pressure medicines like calcium channel blockers and asthma medicines like albuterol. You have mentioned some important treatments. Sleeping on an incline (the whole bed needs to be inclined — using lots of pillows usually doesn’t work) helps by keeping acid down in the stomach when you sleep. Reducing portion size is also important, as is reducing fat intake, which tends to worsen GERD. As such, empty stomachs seem to be best

for most people with GERD. I wonder if the chewing gum is helping you by having you swallow more, which also helps clear acid from the esophagus. Omeprazole certainly can cause weight gain and predispose one to bone loss, so I agree with relying on lifestyle changes and not medication, if possible. However, some people need medication. The old-fashioned H2 blockers, like ranitidine (Zantac) or famotidine (Pepcid) still are good medicines, and they have the advantage of being used on an asneeded basis. Omeprazole and its ilk are very useful, but I think they are overused. I have only one disagreement with you: There is a time to get the endoscopy done. I have seen too many serious problems misdiagnosed as GERD. The risk of an endoscopy is less than the benefit gained by making sure it’s not a serious problem in the stomach or esophagus. Make an appointment with a gastroenterologist.

Jackets edged by Piqua In coach Bill Shoffner’s words, the Sidney Yellow Jackets gift-wrapped a victory for archrival Piqua with a bad sixth inning defensively, leading to a 4-2 setback in Greater Western Ohio Conference North play. Sidney is now 5-3 in the North and 9-8 overall. Sidney scored twice in the second but Piqua came back to tie it with runs in the third and fourth. In the top of the sixth, a couple of throwing errors allowed Piqua to score twice. “We couldn’t get it going offensively,” said Shoffner. “Piqua’s pitcher (Gordon) kept us off balance. (Connor) Echols threw well but the errors just killed us. But take nothing away from Piqua. They came to our house and took it from us. We struck out 21 times and had nine errors in these two games with Piqua and that’s not how a championship caliber team plays.” Jake Lochard singled and doubled for the Jackets.

field. And when we hit the ball hard, they made the plays.” Alexis Phillips came up big for the Lady Rockets, going 4-for-4. Egbert had the big homer in the first and Cayleigh Kirtley singled and doubled. “It was a great win for us,” said Anna coach Tim McMahan. “The girls feel good about themselves and we’re finally starting to play well.

Upper Valley CC students to tour Edison campson work collaboratively towards a common goal of quality education and student success,” said Gwen Stevenson, dean of nursing and health sciences. Edison and the Upper Valley Career Center have been working closely with one another to create opportunities for students to apply the knowledge and skills they were taught at the UVCC and navigate their education pathway. By creating these opportunities, students can jump-start their careers allowing them to save time and money. These

transfer programs will lead them to the pathway of earning a bachelors degree if they choose to do so. Medical Assistants in Ohio can expect to earn nearly $30,000 a year while working in offices, hospitals, outpatient centers and professional schools. Medical Assisting allows students to earn a respectable wage after a relatively short amount of schooling, Edison officials said.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A bill that would immediately halt the expansion of Internet cafes in Ohio cleared a legislative panel Tuesday evening and was headed for a vote by the full state Senate. The measure would extend a current moratorium on the opening of new sweepstakes gambling operations until June 2014, as lawmakers consider a ban on the facilities. The legislation also would require operators of current facilities to file more thorough affidavits of existence with the state. And those who don’t submit a new affidavit could face a fine of up to $1,000 a day. The state’s attorney general could also prosecute an operator or employee for providing false information on the new form. The Senate’s government oversight committee cleared the measure on Tuesday. A full Senate vote could come on Wednesday. Should it pass, the bill would then go to the House for consideration. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine calls the cafes illegal gambling operations and wants them shut down. The industry calls them legal.

Patrons buy cards for phone and Internet time with chances to play computer games that operate like slot machines with cash prizes. DeWine told the committee in testimony Tuesday that the operations were “mini casinos.” He described them as unregulated and a drain on law enforcement resources. “I believe they’re consumer ripoffs,” he said. At the urging of some of the state’s top law enforcers, Ohio Senate President Keith Faber said last week that a majority of his Republican caucus now agrees the cafes are involved in criminal activities, including illegal gambling, and should be outlawed. DeWine, also a Republican, led a raid on six of the facilities in the Cleveland area in the wake of a pivotal 8th District Court of Appeals ruling that concluded the operations were obvious gambling schemes. He says prosecuting these cafes is complicated and costly, and police already have their hands full with everything from overdose deaths from heroin and illegally obtained prescription painkiller sales to child abuse and child pornography investigations.

TEENAGER tient Tuesday night. Sidney police report Patrick Pudlewski was the driver of the car involved in the crash and his father was a passenger. It was reported that he exited the Walmart parking lot and collided with Fahnestock’s truck, which was traveling west on Michigan Street. No other details of the accident were available Tuesday from Sidney police. The crash remains under investigation. An accident reconstruction

expert is participating in the investigation. The crash occurred a short time after Patrick and Jerome Pudlewski left Sunday morning Mass at Holy Angels Catholic Church. Patrick Pudlewski was involved in number of activities at Lehman and had spent Saturday at the State Science Olympiad. He was on the high honor roll at the school. He also served at the Holy Angels Soup Kitchen.

WORKER Ganger was given a chance to be employed as a part-time employee at the animal shelter, the sheriff ’s office release states. Ganger has made restitution in the amount of $230. “Although this is an unfortunate and disappointing turn of events, I strongly believe that work programs are important by putting former inmates to work in the community,” said Sheriff John Lenhart,

who added that often inmates feel that upon being released from jail they have no chance to obtain employment because of their records. “I believe it is important to give them skill sets to obtain employment. Therefore, we are in the process at the Shelby County Jail to begin training inmates in various job-related skills that will help them to obtain employment upon being released. I believe these programs

A Sidney police communications technician has been suspended for 10 days for releasing confidential information. City Manager Mark Cundiff said he followed the recommendation of police Chief Kevin Gessler that Kristina Siler be given a 10-day suspension for violating the professional code by releasing confidential information. “She had no previous disciplinary action and cooperated fully with the investigation,” Cundiff said. Cundiff said the decision was handed down Monday and Siler began the suspension Tuesday.

Chief addresses overdoses COLUMBUS (AP) — Continued bad news about drug overdose deaths in Ohio is focusing attention on calls to expand Medicaid coverage for more state residents. The head of the state’s addictions agency said Tuesday that data showing a record high number of deaths from prescription painkillers and other drugs in 2011 is one more reason to expand the federal-state program for poor children and families. Nearly five Ohioans died every day from overdose deaths in 2011, most of them attributed to continued abuse of painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone as well as rising abuse of heroin, according to Department of Health data released last week. “We need to make sure to the extent that we can that insurance is available for the vast numbers of people in our state struggling with addiction,” Orman Hall, director of the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services, said Tuesday. “From my perspective, it is a moral imperative.” Gov. John Kasich’s plan to expand Medicaid was rejected by his fellow Republican lawmakers. Some GOP legislators are concerned about the cost to the federal government, while others are philosophically opposed to the idea because it’s part of President Barack Obama’s health care plan. The Health Department data show the number of people who died of accidental overdoses jumped 14 percent in 2011 for a total of 1,765 overall deaths.

Young athlete won’t let disability keep him down BY RACHEL LLOYD ANNA — Eleven-year-old Lincoln Gessler, of Anna, is not one to let anything stand in the way of what he wants. He is an excellent student and a dedicated athlete determined to compete at the college level, the Olympics and be a professional superstar. And he’s not about to let something like being legally blind hold him back. Lincoln was born with a disease called Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), and according to his mother, Christa Huecker, of Anna, he can see some light and shapes and shadow in normal lighting conditions; he can see reds and oranges, but he can’t see greens and blues; but in dim or dark light, he cannot see at all. According to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, LCA “is an inherited retinal degenerative disease characterized by severe loss of vision at birth.”

Sheriff: Beware of ID theft related to tax returns The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office has issued a warning to county residents about an identity theft scheme that has surfaced in the county. There has been a report that a resident of Shelby County has fallen victim to identity theft where perpetrators are filing tax returns fictitiously and stealing tax-return money. Sheriff John Lenhart and the Internal Revenue Service are recommending the following tips on safeguarding personal information and protecting against Identity Theft: • Don’t carry your Social Security card or any documents with your SSN or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) on it. • Don’t give a business your SSN or ITIN just because they ask. Give it only when required. • Protect your financial information. • Check your credit report every 12 months. • Secure personal information in your home. • Protect your personal computers by using firewalls, anti-spam/virus software, update security patches and change passwords for Internet accounts.

• Don’t give personal information over the phone, through the mail or on the Internet unless you have initiated the contact or you are sure you know who you are dealing with. If your tax records are not currently affected by identity theft, but you believe you may be at risk due to a lost or stolen purse or wallet, questionable credit card activity or credit report, contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at (800) 908-4490, ext. 245 (Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time. If you believe you’re a victim of identity theft, be alert to possible identity theft if you receive a notice from the IRS or learn from your tax professional that: • More than one tax return for you was filed; • You have a balance due, refund offset or have had collection actions taken against you for a year you did not file a tax return; • IRS records indicate you received more wages than you actually earned or; • Your state or federal benefits were reduced or canceled because the agency received information reporting an in-

come change. If you receive a notice from IRS and you suspect your identity has been used fraudulently, respond immediately by calling the number on the notice. If you did not receive a notice but believe you’ve been the victim of identity theft, contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit listed above right away so officials can take steps to secure your tax account and match your SSN or ITIN. Also, fill out the IRS Identity Theft Affidavit, Form 14039. Write legibly and follow the directions on the back of the form that relate to your specific circumstances. Lenhart and the staff at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office urge residents to avoid scams by never agreeing to handle financial transactions over the phone with people they are unfamiliar with, no matter what the reason. If you feel your identity has been stolen or the victim of identity theft, call 498-1111 and ask to speak with a deputy and file a report. Lenhart said he and his staff will assist any county residents who feel they have been scammed or are in contact with a scammer.

Engineering students compete LIMA — Two teams of first-year engineering students at the Ohio State University at Lima competed in the Engineering Education Innovation Center’s Advanced Energy Vehicle (AEV) Showcase on April 22 on the Columbus campus. One Ohio State Lima team, “Old School,” placed second in the Most Innovative category out of 41 teams from the

Columbus, Newark and Lima campuses. “Old School” and Lima’s other team, “Purple Cobras” were chosen from seven teams in Lima’s first-year engineering courses to compete in the showcase. university-wide, more than 375 teams of students from first year sections competed to enter the showcase. Each team consisted of three or four students.

The goal of the project was to develop a vehicle that minimized the amount of energy used, ran autonomously and was aesthetically pleasing. Lima students were able to test their vehicles on a track that was set up in the Physics Lab. The teams developed their projects with two categories in mind: innovative design and best engineered vehicle.

Students on the “Old School” team include Matthew Gerding, of Kalida, Dallis Gibson, of Convoy, Tyler Egbert, of Anna, and Robert Puthoff, of St. Henry. Team members on the “Purple Cobras” were Stephen Scheramic, of Perrysburg, Jake Cordonnier, of Fort Loramie, Blake Gehret, of Houston, and Troy Plattner, of Fort Loramie.

tember. She and her best friend talk constantly about going to school dances after football games. I’m told by other parents that the Garden Grove school district will not allow parents to act as dance chaperones. I think this is a terrible rule. Concerned parents would make excellent chaperones at no cost to the school. I’m astounded at this rule. I would welcome chaperoning a dance where my daughter would be attending. I understand that you are a former high school administrator and would welcome your thoughts on this issue. —Mother, Garden Grove, Calif. MOTHER: All chaperones should be school personnel only (teachers, counselors, administrators). They have the authority to deal with problems that might arise. It wouldn’t be fair to place a parent in this role. But parents should be welcome to stop by and visit the dance as guests with no discipli-

nary responsibility whatsoever. The maximum length of the visit? Fifteen minutes! The maximum number of dances parents can visit? All of them if they so choose. Contact the Garden Grove District Superintendent’s office to see if parents can make a short visit at school dances. I would be surprised if the answer was no. Parents were welcome to stop by school dances when I was an administrator in the Garden Grove School District. Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

In the Maumee River, a boulder whose name derives from its resemblance to a buffalo charging upstream stands as mute witness to the history and legend of Northwest Ohio. Roche de Boeuf (“Rock of Beef”) and Roche de Bout (“Rock of the River”) were the names applied to this great limestone formation by the Frenchmen who first visited the river valley. The landmark is recognized by both names today, although the former is used most frequently. The area that surrounds the rock is rich geologically and historically. The Bowling Green Fault Line, a major structural feature, crosses the Maumee River just upstream of Roche de Boeuf. Chief Pontiac’s Ottawa village once sat on a high bluff on the western shore of the river rapids. In 1794, Chiefs Little Turtle, Blue Jacket and Tarhe the Crane met here to plan their strategy against the United States’ armies. On August 18, 1794, U.S. General Anthony Wayne and his legions crossed the river at the same spot as they moved downstream to force a Native American retreat at the Battle of Fallen Timbers. The army left a store of supplies in the shelter at the base of the great rock, earning it yet another name: Fort Deposit. Roche de Boeuf is said to be the last resting place of nearly 200 Native Americans who were killed not in battle with other tribes or Wayne’s legions, but in the heat of passionate revenge. According to legend, a Native American child fell off the rock into the river. When the father came home and learned his son’s fate, he pushed the child’s mother over the rock’s towering side in search of their offspring. According to tribal law, her next of kin pushed the murdering husband over the rock. He in turn was executed by the husband’s kin. Many more were killed in the same manner until two-thirds of the tribe’s members were lost. In 1907, the National Railroad Company constructed the Lima and Toledo Traction Company bridge to carry interurban electric trolleys over the river. Against public outcry, one-third of Roche de Boeuf was destroyed to make room for a bridge pier. By 1922, interurban trolleys were out of business, and the bridge was used by the Lima & Toledo Railroad. In 1929, it supported the Cincinnati & Lake Erie Railroad’s high-speed “limited” runs three times a day between Cincinnati and Detroit. Today, the bridge’s concrete shell is crumbling, trees sprout from it, and barriers block passage to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. But the remains of Roche de Boeuf still hold a massive footing in the swirling rapids of the Maumee River.

Words to Know: derives upstream bluff legions downstream interurban For Discussion: 1. Early French traders thought the great rock looked like a charging buffalo. Buffalo no longer roam in Ohio. Are there any landmarks or streets in your town named for something that once lived there? 2. Interview elderly relatives or neighbors about a local legend. Had you heard the legends before you talked to them? If so, how did their telling differ from what you had heard before? 3. Are there any railroad tracks in your town, or were there tracks at one time? Visit your library to look for stories about what the tracks where used for and where they led. Was something removed to make way for them?

Newspaper Activity: Is there a special landmark in your town where people like to meet? Write a newspaper-style story about how that spot may have been a gathering place for ancient peoples.

Shriver coming back to NBC NEW YORK (AP) — After nearly a decade away, former California first lady Maria Shriver is returning to NBC News for a job where she will concentrate on the roles of women in American life. Shriver on Tuesday was named a “special anchor” who will appear on various NBC programming, including CNBC, MSNBC and NBC


Sports, and be an editor at large on women’s issues for the network’s digital properties. She had worked at NBC from 1986 to 2004, much of it on “Dateline NBC.” Shriver quit NBC amid concerns about whether her job at the news division could cause conflicts with her position as first lady while her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger,

was governor. The two are now divorcing. At the time, NBC’s then-news president, Neal Shapiro, referred to her exit not as a resignation but “an extended leave of absence.” “The truth is I never took a leave from journalism,” Shriver wrote on her blog. “I just took my reporter’s skills and used them in other arenas.”

LEGALS IN THE COMMON PLEAS COURT OF SHELBY COUNTY, OHIO COMPLAINT OF CIVIL FORECLOSURE CASE NO. 13CV000081 State of Ohio, Plaintiff vs. Gabriel Garza-Rivera 6441 Hartman Street Las Vegas, Nevada 89108-5664, Defendant. Now comes Plaintiff, State of Ohio, by and through its undersigned counsel, who verifies upon information and belief, as follows: 1. This is an action by the State of Ohio seeking forfeiture of the property described below: a. All right, title and interest of a black Ford Taurus automobile, VIN #1FAFP55SXYA213479. 2. The Defendant’s property is subject to forfeiture pursuant to O.R.C. §2981.02(A)(2) and 2981.05. 3. The property qualifies under the above section for forfeiture as it was proceeds that were derived from or acquired through the commission of an offense. On or about August 19th, 2008 this vehicle and the Defendant were involved in a traffic accident at the 200 block of North Vandemark Road in Sidney, Ohio. (See attached Police Report, Exhibit “A”). It was later found that the occupant and owner of the vehicle, a Lance Longoria, was a false and fictitious name that the Defendant used to acquired the vehicle. (See attached Court Order, Exhibit “B”). Therefore, since the property was used pursuant to O.R.C. §2981.02(A)(2) as proceeds derived or acquired through the commission of an offense, the aforementioned property qualifies as forfeiture property pursuant to §2981.05. 4. The State of Ohio brings this forfeiture action well after the requisite sixty (60) days as required by §2981.03(F) but submits that the new employees of the Shelby County Prosecutor’s Office were just made aware of this situation by local law enforcement and have acted quickly on this matter. Further, Defendant has not attempted to contact or communicate with law enforcement or the Prosecutor’s Office to our knowledge. Therefore, we believe that good cause exists to extend the timeliness of the filing of this action and ask the Court to find the same. WHEREFORE, the Plaintiff, State of Ohio, prays for the proposed property to be forfeited and a clear title transferred to the State of Ohio for proper disposal under O.R.C. §2981.12.

Deal 880 Merrilane Sidney, Ohio 45365, Defendants Now comes Plaintiff, State of Ohio, by and through its undersigned counsel, who hereby verify upon information and belief, as follows: 1. This is an action by the State of Ohio seeking forfeiture of the property described below: a. All right, title and interest of a 1995 Ford Escort automobile, VIN #1FASP11J8SW191982. 2. The Defendant’s property is subject to forfeiture pursuant to O.R.C. 2981.2 (A)(2) and 2981.05. 3. The property qualifies under the above section for forfeiture as it was proceeds derived from or acquired through the commission of an offense. On or about January 21st, 2009 this vehicle was discovered to be in the possession of Defendant Sondra Deal and Timothy Spradlin. Spradlin reported that Deal had acquired the vehicle from a certain female that was posing as Defendant Elizabeth Christopher but that Christopher, who was deceased, did not transfer the vehicle. (See attached Police Report, Exhibit “A”). Therefore, since the property was used pursuant to O.R.C. 2981.02 (A)(2) as proceeds derived or acquired through the commission of an offense, the aforementioned property qualifies as forfeiture property pursuant to 2981.05. 4. The State of Ohio brings this forfeiture action well after the requisite sixty (60) days as required by 2981.03(F) but submits that the new employees of the Shelby County Prosecutor’s Office were just made aware of this situation by local law enforcement and have acted quickly on this matter.

In the hearts of those who loved you, you will always be there. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. . Loved always, sadly missed. Forever remembered, forever missed. Suffer little children to come unto me.

September 19, 1917 thru March 7, 2006
