Although U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan was called a barnyard obscenity — which he said was a first — he characterized a public forum Tuesday night at VFW Post 4239 one of the best town hall meetings he has attended. Jordan, R-Urbana, spoke briefly on a variety subjects at the town hall meeting sponsored by the Shelby County Liberty Group before taking questions. He represents the 4th Congressional District, which includes Shelby and Auglaize counties, in addition to a number of other counties. Jordan praised Frank and Phil Gilardi, owners of
Freshway Foods in Sidney, for their action to sue government over compliance with the federally mandated health insurance provisions because of their Catholic faith. They are against providing contraceptive methods, including abortion-inducing drugs for their employees. “They said ‘we take our faith seriously and we’re going to stand up and be counted,’” Jordan said. “God bless them.” Jordan spoke out against the administration and Democrat-controlled Senate piling up more debt for the SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg generations to come, which is he said is now almost up to U.S. REP. Jim Jordan, Urbana, 4th-District, talks about the greatness of America and what needs to change during a Lib$17 trillion. See JORDAN/Page 13A erty Group meeting at the Sidney VFW Tuesday.

The 2.98-mill levy is not an increase but is a renewal that will continue to provide $150,000 in operating funds for the school district. The tax must be renewed every five years. It will continue to cost the owner of a $100,000 home $93.87 per
year, or $7.82 per month. The tax was first approved in 1977, and it has been continuously renewed six time since then. “The renewal of this tax levy by the voters of the Fairlawn Local School District will assure that the board of education is able to continue to deliver a high quality education to all of its students,” Fairlawn Superintendent Steve Mascho said. “With the support of the citizens in our district, we have been able to meet the diverse needs of our students in the

And it rained or snowed on 15 of the month’s 30 days. The historical average number of days with precipitation in April here is 13.

Don Lee Dicke On May 1, 2013, at 12:20 a.m. Don Lee Dicke quietly ascended from the pain and suffering of his physical body into the open arms of our Lord in Heaven, Jesus Christ. In his last days, he was comforted and reassured by all who loved him that he had fought and suffered long enough. He is survived by his wife, Lois Ann Berning whom he married on Sept. 13, 1958, and children Pamela (Dicke) Miller, Christine Dicke, Michael Dicke and friend Trish Carter, Todd and Bridget (Schwartz) Dicke. He will also be missed by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Luke and Amanda (Seigel) Kuenning, Cara Miller, Derek Dicke, Jacob Miller, Logan and Brook Dicke, Nolan, Halley and Reid Kuenning. His sister, Patricia Now survives in Coldwater. Her husband, Dale is deceased. He enjoyed a very extended family when he married wife Lois. He is survived by Harry Ingram (father-in-law), Jerry and Norma(Berning) Lunney, Ron and Marlene (Berning) Hittepole, Ray and JoAnn (Berning) Meckstroth, Kermit and Barb (Berning) Freewalt, and Stan Berning. It was time to join those on the other side that were waiting for him, his mother Fentrus (May) (Bill) Dicke;
Grandma Burden; mother-in-law Dorothy; brother and sister-in-law Jim and Carol Berning;his father, Paul and stepmother Lodema. And then there were his old buddies — Jim Wiseman, Tom Kettler and Norm Meckstroth — to pick him up in his old ’57 Chevy. We hope he is up in Heaven enjoying all of the things he had so very little time to enjoy after his retirement in 2004 from Crown Equipment Corp. and the many years of owning Dicke’s Service Station, both in New Bremen. He loved to work in the yard, ride his bike around town and talk to anyone and everyone on his daily travels. His family is forever grateful to those who treated him so tenderly in these past few weeks from the State of the Heart Hospice and Heritage Manor Nursing Center. They know who they are and we appreciate all they did for him. In lieu of flowers the family would like donations to be made in Don’s behalf to the Alzheimer’s Association for future research. The family will be receiving friends on Saturday from 2 until 5 p.m. at the GilbergHartwig Funeral Home in New Bremen. Condolences to the family may be left at gilberghartwigfh.com.

Raberding told board members about a website called compareohioschools.org that compares measures of expenditures and performance of Ohio school districts. Anna Superintendent Andy Bixler told board members that there will be a waiver day on May 15 that has been approved by the Ohio Department of Education so that staff members can participate in ALICE training, which addresses student safety. Bixler reviewed with board members supplemental positions in Anna Local Schools. The board accepted the retirement resignation of Bob Gephart, effective Jan. 31, 2014. Since Gephart will be retiring at that time, the school district will be hiring a new high school guidance counselor for the beginning of the new school year.

Navy charges 2 DeWine honors in deaths of 2 fallen police officers divers at pond BY WILL E SANDERS Civitas Media firstname.lastname@example.org
BY DAVID DISHNEAU The Associated Press
TROY —About 200 people attended a solemn police pemorial ceremony at the courthouse square Wednesday to honor those fallen officers from Miami County and the nation who made the ultimate sacrifice. Local and state dignitaries, including Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who has the keynote speaker, addressed the crowd during an at-times emotional memorial service attended by many of the surviving family members of seven law enforcement agents who met line-of-duty deaths in the county. “We are here today to remember a number of Miami County fallen officers,” DeWine stated, before briefly speaking about each one. DeWine expressed his condolences to the families of the fallen and noted how important, but also dangerous, the job of a police officer is. “It’s a very dangerous job,” he said, “but the men and women who take this job accept that risk.” He also said there are no truer words than those chiseled into the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., and those words are: “It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how the lived.” Piqua Deputy Chief Marty Grove, president of FOP Lodge 58, also spoke to the crowd and said the annual memorial service is one he wishes “we didn’t have to put on.” Grove thanked not only the families of the fallen, but families of all police officers for the sacrifices they, too, must make on a daily basis, whether it’s from missing sporting events their children are playing in to watching a loved one walk out the door each day wearing a badge and never knowing for sure if they will come back after their shift. And then he turned his attention to the surviving family members.
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Two enlisted sailors who had a supervisory role with a Virginia-based Navy dive unit face military criminal charges of involuntary manslaughter and dereliction of duty in the February drowning deaths of two divers at an Army facility test pond near Baltimore, officials said Wednesday. Navy officials said in a news release that the two defendants, whom they haven’t identified, are a chief warrant officer 3 and a senior chief petty officer in Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit 2. The enlisted sailors had a supervisory role in the events at the pond, according to Navy officials in Washington who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because the case is under investigation. They also belonged to the same unit as the victims, Diver 1st Class James Reyher, 28, of Caldwell, Ohio, and Diver 2nd Class Ryan Harris, 23, of Gladstone, Mo., said Lt. Cdr. Charity Hardison of the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command in Virginia Beach, Va. The two sailors drowned Feb. 26 during routine diving operations at an underwater weapons-testing facility, dubbed the Super Pond, at Aberdeen Proving Ground. The Maryland Army installation is about 20 miles northeast of Baltimore. Their deaths came weeks after the Jan. 30 death of civilian technician George Lazzaro at the same pond. Lazzaro was doing underwater maintenance of the facility. His cause of his death hasn’t been released. The defendants will face an Article 32 hearing, the military equivalent of a preliminary hearing or grand jury investigation, on May 21 at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia. The hearing will determine whether the charges will be referred to a court-martial, dealt with administratively or dismissed. “The command is saying, ‘We think there’s enough evidence for these charges,’” Hardison said. “An investigating officer will look at the information and decide whether the charges are substantiated.” Hardison said the command won’t disclose the defendants’ names until the May 21 hearing. The Navy divers’ deaths were investigated by Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group 2 and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. A spokesman for the explosive ordnance unit referred calls to Hardison. An NCIS spokesman didn’t immediately reply to an email from The Associated Press for information about the investigation. The death of Lazzaro, 41, of Nottingham, is being investigated by the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division, the Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center at Fort Rucker, Ala., and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The Army units didn’t immediately respond to AP queries. An OSHA spokeswoman said that agency’s investigation isn’t complete.

OHIO ATTORNEY General Mike DeWine delivers the keynote address at the 2013 Miami County Police Memorial Day in Troy on Wednesday. “You are surrounded by your extended family,” Grove stated. “A family that continues to be by your side.” Those police officers who are on the memorial, in the order of their deaths, are: • Marshal Harvey Hake, a Covington police officer, was shot and killed on Jan. 12, 1917, while chasing a suspect. • Patrolman George Eickmeyer, a Tipp City police officer, died Sept. 17, 1945, when his car was struck by a train. • Lt. Noah Studebaker, a Piqua police officer, died Oct. 17, 1957, from complications of a shotgun blast to his face, neck and chest area on May 29, 1949, after being dispatched to a burglary in process. • Patrolman Jan Mulder II, a Piqua police officer, was shot and killed Aug. 11, 1970, at the Fort Piqua Hotel by a fleeing gunman. • Sgt. William R. Morris, a Miami County sheriff ’s deputy, was shot and killed Nov. 22, 1972. • Detective Robert Taylor, a Piqua police officer, died Nov. 3,
1982, after suffering a heart attack while participating in strenuous police training. • Sgt. Robert L. Elliott, a Miami County sheriff ’s deputy, was shot and killed Feb. 25, 1987. As each officer’s brief background was read aloud, family members of the fallen were escorted to the memorial where each one placed a placed a flower in its shadow. Troy Pastor Greg Simmons, also the chaplain of Lodge 58, thanked the fallen officers whose names are etched into the granite of the county’s law enforcement memorial for their courage and sacrifice. “We will remember what they have done for us,” Simmons said. “We will remember them for what they have done for our community.” The memorial ended with a lone trumpeter playing Taps atop the courthouse steps. The Miami County Police Memorial was dedicated in 1999 to law enforcement officers who died in the line-of-duty in Miami County.
Ohio executes man who killed, raped 6-month-old LUCASVILLE (AP) — One family wept loudly and another family cheered Wednesday as a man was executed for killing a 6-month-old as he raped her. Steve Smith, 46, was executed by lethal injection at the state prison in Lucasville in southern Ohio for the 1998 killing of his live-in girlfriend’s daughter, Autumn Carter, in Mansfield. Smith had recently tried to get his sentence reduced to life in prison, arguing that he was too drunk to realize that his assault was killing Autumn and that he didn’t mean to hurt her. The Ohio Parole Board and Gov. John Kasich turned him down unanimously. In the 25 minutes between when Smith walked into the death chamber flanked by prison guards and when the
lethal injection killed him, his only child, 21-year-old Brittney, and his niece sobbed and shook with grief. Smith declined to say any last words, then looked at Brittney sitting behind a pane of glass. “I love you,” Brittney said as she wept. Smith turned his head away and appeared to be struggling not to cry, his chin shaking. As the lethal injection began, Smith took several heavy breaths before he closed his eyes. He was pronounced dead at 10:29 a.m. Less than 3 feet away from Brittney and separated by a wall, Autumn’s mother — Kesha Frye — watched Smith quietly. After he was dead, Frye’s sister pumped her fists in the air. “I’m glad he’s dead, and I
hope he burns in hell,” Frye said surrounded by her family after the execution. Frye’s father and Autumn’s grandfather, Patrick Hicks, said Smith’s execution was too good for him. “Because of him, Autumn never had a chance to take her first step, she never had her first birthday or a first day of school,” he said. “It’s just unfortunate that this man gets to die a peaceful death after the torture he put Autumn through.” Days before the execution, Brittney Smith said that she has never believed her father killed Autumn and that he had only admitted to it because he had given up hope. “I know my dad’s innocent,” she said. “I do not believe he did this, and you know, he raised all my cousins, my sister before I was even born, and
he never did anything (sexually).” After the execution, Smith’s attorney, Joseph Wilhelm, said that his client “felt great remorse for the tragic and shocking crime he committed.” “He was well-behaved and sober while in prison, causing no problems in the institution and living each day with the guilt and grief caused by his alcohol-fueled crime,” said Wilhelm, who also witnessed the execution. “While some may trumpet his execution as appropriate revenge for his crime, Ohio is no safer having executed Steven Smith than had he lived the remainder of his natural life in prison.” Back on the night of Sept. 29, 1998, Frye was awoken by Smith, her live-in boyfriend of four months. Smith, who was drunk and naked, laid a naked and life-

Trial hinging on dying man’s blinks opens eyes. Woods was later charged with murder, felonious assault and weapons counts in the case. The trial’s outcome is expected to hinge on a videotaped police interview with Chandler in the hospital. Jurors will have to determine whether Chandler was alert and knew what he was doing when police say he blinked three times for yes to identify a photo of Woods as his shooter. Police asked Chandler to blink three times for yes and twice for no to a series of questions in the interview, said Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor David Prem. Chandler also blinked yes to indicate that he
knew the gunman and that his name began with the letter “O,” Prem said. “O” was a street name that Woods sometimes used, the prosecutor said. Prem told jurors that when they view the video, they will clearly see that Chandler knew what he was doing. “You are going to see how he was struggling to get it right,” Prem said. The motive for the shooting, the prosecutor said, was that Chandler owed Woods money for drugs. Chandler was a drug user who had bought drugs many times from Woods but had gone to an area near Woods’ home the night of the shooting with two friends to buy drugs
from someone else. Chandler was shot about 20 yards from Woods’ home and in an area known for drug deals, he said. Prem said that while neither of the men in the car with Chandler could clearly identify the man who shot him, one heard a voice saying Chandler owed him money. Defense attorney Wendy Calaway insisted that Woods did not shoot Chandler and is “an innocent man who found himself in a perfect storm of misinformation and misidentification.” Calaway said Chandler had stolen drugs from dealers previously. “He had many enemies,” Calaway said of Chandler.
PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) — Southeastern Michigan authorities say they’ve used DNA and dental records to identify remains found in 1994 as those of a central Ohio woman who disappeared in 1988. The St. Clair County sheriff’s office in Port Huron said Wednesday that University of North Texas experts confirmed the skeleton is that of Diann Tatum, who disappeared while traveling from Ohio to visit her parents in the Detroit suburb of Warren. The department is treating the case as a homicide. Columbus, Ohio, TV station WTTE says Tatum lived in Fayette County, near Washington Court House, Ohio.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A dying, paralyzed man who couldn’t speak intentionally blinked his eyes to identify a photo of his attacker for authorities, prosecutors said Wednesday in opening statements at the suspect’s murder trial, while the defense insists those blinks were inconsistent and unreliable. Those arguments in the trial of Ricardo Woods are expected to be repeated over the next few weeks as jurors are asked to decide whether Woods killed David Chandler, of Cincinnati. Chandler, 35, died about two weeks after a shooting Oct. 28, 2010, left him paralyzed from the neck down and only able to communicate with his
less Autumn on Frye’s bed, according to court records. Frye rushed the baby and her other 2-year-old daughter to a neighbor’s house and called 911. Autumn was pronounced dead after doctors tried to revive her for more than an hour, and Smith was arrested. The baby was covered in bruises and welts and had severe injuries showing she had been brutally raped, though no semen was present. At the home, there was no sign of forced entry, and police found a large amount of white cloth that came from Autumn’s diaper strewn about; police found the rest of the diaper in a garbage bin outside, along with 10 empty cans of beer. At the time, Smith told police that he “didn’t do anything.”

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Thursday, May 2, the 122nd day of 2013. There are 243 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 2, 1963, the Children’s Crusade began in Birmingham, Ala., as more than 1,000 black skipped schoolchildren classes and marched downtown to protest racial segregation; hundreds were arrested. (During another march the following day, authorities unleashed police dogs and fire hoses on the young protesters.) On this date: • In 1519, artist Leonardo da Vinci died at Cloux, France, at age 67. • In 1670, the Hudson’s Bay Co. was chartered by England’s King Charles II. • In 1863, during the Civil War, Confederate Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was accidentally wounded by his own men at Chancellorsville, Va.; he died eight days later. • In 1890, the Oklahoma Territory was organized. • In 1936, “Peter and the Wolf,” a symphonic tale for children by Sergei Prokofiev, had its world premiere in Moscow. • In 1945, the Soviet Union announced the fall of Berlin, and the Allies announced the surrender of Nazi troops in Italy and parts of Austria. • In 1952, the era of commercial jet passenger service began as a BOAC de Havilland Comet carrying 36 passengers took off on a multi-stop flight from London to Johannesburg, South Africa. • In 1957, Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-Wis., died at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland. • In 1960, Caryl Chessman, who’d become a bestselling author and cause celebre while on death row for kidnapping, rape and robbery, was executed at San Quentin Prison in California. • In 1972, a fire at the Sunshine silver mine in Kellogg, Idaho, claimed the lives of 91 workers who succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. Longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover died in Washington at age 77. • In 1982, the Weather Channel made its debut. • In 2011, Osama bin Laden was killed by elite American forces at his Pakistan compound, then quickly buried at sea after a decade on the run.
OUT OF THE BLUE
All dressed up and no place to go SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Everyone got stood up at one Southern California high school’s prom. The dance itself was a no-show. KABC-TV Los Angeles reports dozens of tuxedoclad and corsage-wearing teens from Bloomington High School traveled 40 miles to Santa Anita Park on Saturday, only to discover they hadn’t been told that the date of the big night had changed. Instead of the enchanting evening they were expecting, students were served chicken strips in a hastily arranged small hall where someone played music from a laptop computer. The San Bernardino County school’s calendar and the prom invitations listed the event on April 27, but it was slated for May 4. Principal Ignacio Cabrera says there was miscommunication with event planners. A semi-formal substitute event is planned for May 18.

FBI: Backpacks removed from room BOSTON (AP) — Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested and accused Wednesday of trying to protect him by going into his dorm room and getting rid of a backpack filled with hollowed-out fireworks three days after the deadly attack. The three 19-year-olds were not accused of any role in the bombing. But in a footnote in the court papers outlining the charges, the FBI said that about a month before the tragedy, Tsarnaev told two of them that he knew how to make a bomb. Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both of whom came to the U.S. from Kazakhstan, were charged with conspiring to obstruct justice by concealing and destroying evidence. Robel Phillipos, who graduated from a Cambridge high school with Tsarnaev, was charged with lying to investigators about the visit to Tsarnaev’s room. According to the FBI account, just hours after surveillance camera photos of
the Boston Marathon suspects were flashed around the world April 18, Tsnarnaev’s friends suspected he was one of the bombers and removed the backpack along with a laptop from Tsarnaev’s room at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. One of them later threw the backpack in the garbage, and it wound up in a landfill, where it was discovered by law enforcement officers last week, authorities said. In the backpack were fireworks that had been emptied of their gunpowder. The lawyers for the Kazakh students said their clients had nothing to do with the bombing and were just as shocked by the crime as everyone else. Phillipos’ attorney, Derege Demissie, said outside court: “The only allegation is he made a misrepresentation.” At a court appearance, the Kazakh students did not request bail and will be held for another hearing May 14. Phillipos was held for a hearing on Monday. If convicted, Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov
could get up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Phillipos faces a maximum of eight years behind bars and a $250,000 fine. Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the marathon’s finish line. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died after a gunfight with police days later. His 19year-old brother was captured and lies in a prison hospital. Their mother has said the allegations against them are lies. Investigators have not said whether the pressure cooker bombs used in the attacks were made with gunpowder extracted from fireworks. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov have been in jail for more than a week on allegations they were in violation of their student visas, one because he was skipping classes, the other because he was no longer enrolled. All three men charged Wednesday began attending UMass with Tsarnaev in 2011, according to the FBI.

A WOMAN mourns as she arrived in hopes to find her sister, seen in the photograph she is holding, among unclaimed bodies brought to a cemetery from the garment factory building collapse in preparation for a mass burial on Wednesday in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Several hundred people attended a mass funeral in a Dhaka suburb for 18 unidentified workers who died in the building collapse last week last week in the country's worst industrial disaster, killing at least 402 people and injuring 2,500. The bodies, rotting in the spring heat, were brought to the graveyard on the back of a flatbed truck.
Bangladesh building collapse victims buried JURAIN, Bangladesh (AP) — Dozens of Bangladeshi garment workers whose bodies were too battered or decomposed to be identified were buried in a mass funeral, a week after the eight-story building they worked in collapsed, killing at least 410 people and injuring thousands. Hundreds attended the traditional Muslim funeral and many more watched from the roofs of nearby buildings Wednesday as the bodies, rotting in the spring heat, were brought to the graveyard on the back of flatbed trucks. Onlookers covered their noses. One woman rushed through the crowd to the back of a truck wailing that one body was her sister’s. She begged to take it as family members held her to keep her from collapsing. Local men and boys recited a prayer for the dead. Then, 34 bodies were unloaded and placed in the graves. Cemetery workers have dug several long rows of graves where scores more unidentified bodies are expected to be buried in the coming days.
“I would not have to take part in this if the government acted more responsibly,” said Rasel Islam, a 32-year-old man who attended the burial. Five garment factories were housed in the illegally constructed Rana Plaza building that collapsed April 24. The disaster and a garment factory fire five months earlier that killed 112 people exposed the unsafe conditions plaguing Bangladesh’s $20 billion-a-year garment industry that supplies many global retailers. At the Vatican, Pope Francis said he was shocked that some of the workers were living on 38 euros ($50) a month. “This was the payment of these people who have died … and this is called ‘slave labor,’” he said. Vatican Radio said the pope made the remarks during a private Mass at the Vatican. “Not paying a just (wage), not providing work, focusing exclusively on the balance books, on financial statements, only looking at making personal profit. That goes against God!” Francis was quoted as saying. He added: “People are less
important than the things that give profit to those who have political, social, economic power. What point have we come to? To the point that we are not aware of this dignity of the person; this dignity of labor.” EU officials said they are considering action including changes to Bangladesh’s dutyfree and quota-free access to the giant EU market to “incentivize” responsible management of the nation’s garment industry. Catherine Ashton, the EU’s foreign affairs chief, and its trade commissioner, Karel De Gucht, called in a statement for Bangladesh authorities to act immediately to ensure factories comply with international labor standards. In Washington, U.S. State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said businesses operating in the Rana Plaza appeared to have links to numerous companies in the U.S. and Europe. “We’ll continue to engage with U.S. companies to discuss what role they can play in improving conditions,” he told reporters. He did not give details on the companies.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A small patch of prairie sits largely unnoticed off a desolate road in southwestern South Dakota, tucked amid gently rolling hills and surrounded by dilapidated structures and hundreds of gravesites — many belonging to Native Americans massacred more than a century earlier. The assessed value of the property: less than $14,000. The seller’s asking price: $4.9 million. Tribal members say the man who owns a piece of the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is trying to profit from their suffering. It was there, on Dec. 29, 1890, that 300 Native American men, women and children were killed by the 7th Cavalry in the final battle of the American Indian Wars. James Czywczynski, whose family has owned the property since 1968, is trying to sell the 40-acre fraction of the historic landmark and another 40-acre parcel for $4.9 million. He had given the Oglala Sioux Tribe until Wednesday to agree to the price, after which he said he’d open it up to outside investors. Oglala Sioux tribal president Bryan Brewer told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the tribe does not have the money to buy the land and that, even if it did, tribal members shouldn’t have to buy back something that is theirs. “We are hoping no one will buy this land. And I’d like to tell investors that if someone thinks they can go down there and commercialize this, it will never happen. We will not allow it,” he said. Czywczynski did not return repeated calls from The Associated Press by Wednesday evening to see whether outside investors are now able to bid for the land. Earlier this month he told the AP he had three offers from West Coast-based investment groups interested in buying the land for the original asking price. The ultimatum has caused anger among many tribal members and descendants of the massacre victims. “I know we are at the 11th hour, but selling this massacre site and using the victims as a selling pitch is, for lack of a better word, it’s grotesque,” said Nathan Blindman, 56, whose grandfather was 10 when he survived the massacre.
5-year-old shoots 2-year-old sister BURKESVILLE, Ky. (AP) — In southern Kentucky, where children get their first guns even before they start first grade, Stephanie Sparks paid little attention as her 5year-old son, Kristian, played with the rifle he was given last year. Then, as she stepped onto the front porch while cleaning the kitchen, “she heard the gun go off,” a coroner said. In a horrific accident Tuesday that shocked a rural area far removed from the national debate over gun control, the
boy had killed his 2-year-old sister, Caroline, with a single shot to the chest. “Down in Kentucky where we’re from, you know, guns are passed down from generation to generation,” Cumberland County Coroner Gary White said. “You start at a young age with guns for hunting and everything.” What is more unusual than a child having a gun, he said, is “that a kid would get shot with it.” In this case, the rifle was made by a company that sells
guns specifically for children — “My first rifle” is the slogan — in colors ranging from plain brown to hot pink to orange to royal blue to multicolor swirls. Kristian’s rifle was kept in a corner of the mobile home, and the family didn’t realize a bullet had been left in it. “It’s a normal way of life, and it’s not just rural Kentucky, it’s rural America — hunting and shooting and sport fishing. It starts at an early age,” said Cumberland County Judge Executive John
Phelps. “There’s probably not a household in this county that doesn’t have a gun.” In Cumberland County, as elsewhere in Kentucky, local newspapers feature photos of children proudly displaying their kills, including turkey and deer. Phelps, who is much like a mayor in these parts, said it had been four or five years since there had been a shooting death in the county, which lies along the Cumberland River near the Tennessee state line.

Sidney Daily News,Thursday, May 2, 2013
Phlipot presents to Kiwanis Club Tilda Phlipot, director of the Shelby County Historical Society, discussed the organization’s history and outlined upcoming society projects during a speech before the Kiwanis Club of Sidney April 17. The society was formed on July 24, 1946, she said. Following a period of inactivity, the society was reactivated in 1965. After another period of decline, the society was revived for good in 1993 by Dr. Bill Ross III and local attorney Rich Wallace. As has been reported in the Sidney Daily News, March was the 100th anniversary of the Great Flood. Phlipot said that for the remainder of 2013, many of the exhibits at the society will focus on the Civil War. Tonight, “The Tale of an Emancipated Slave” will be presented by Anthony Gibbs during a Civil War dinner. Gibbs will portray John Parker, an Underground Railroad conductor from
Ripley. A USO show will be June 29. Next year, the society will focus on “JourStories,” a ney Smithsonian exhibition that shows how evolving mobility changed a young nation and how transportation made it grow. “The accounts of travelers themselves express the hopes and promises of fresh starts, the grim realities of forced migrations and difficult journeys, and the thrill of personal travel. It’s all about how you begin and what you do with your life,” Phlipot said. One story Phlipot shared was about a young nerdy school kid, not into sports but interested in science and chemistry. He used to break into school in order to take chemicals to do experiments in the basement of his home. One experiment went terribly wrong and an explosion occurred which injured this young scien-
tist. But rather than scolding her child, his mother told him to be more careful. This young man grew up in Sidney and, Paul Lauterbur went on to help develop the MRI and win a Nobel Prize in 2003. Prior to Phlipot’s remarks, President Phil Warnecke called the meeting to order. The invocation was given by Rick Lunsford and the group was led in song by Ralph Bornhorst, accompanied by Don Tangeman on the piano. John Coffield led the Fun & Games activities in which members had to complete a sudoku puzzle. Treasurer Ray Weber reported that 419 meals were served at this year’s Pancake Day. This was an increase of around 40 over last year. Gary Carter reported that the scholarship applications have been graded and a determination will be made on those to be interviewed.

Living and walking in obedience to God’s Word and developing — until terminated) and an unborn baby is a human (Genesis scripturally 1:26-27; Psalm 139; Jeremiah 1:5; Luke 1:41). The Word of God would have the church to stand and move (out of the pews and pulpits) with the helpless and defenseless! Where is the church? The biblical church is made up of those who have placed their faith, hope, and love — in the person of Jesus Christ. The mission of the church is to make disciples — to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. The church is not a place; it is a people. God honors his servants who are great in prayer (Acts 13), great in preaching biblical truth and morality (2 Timothy 3:1-7, 16, 4:1-5), and great in Holy Spirit power and discipleship (Genesis — Revelation). Whether we are legislators, judges, executives, teachers, preachers, lawyers, homemakers, students, doctors, truck drivers, citizens … we all have the responsibility to glorify God. Every day we should be conscious of our Christian responsibility to live and walk in obedience to God’s Word. The writer is the pastor of New Life Church PJBC in Port Jefferson.
Speaker at local church to focus on John’s Gospel Matthew Moore, a teacher at Cedarville U n i v e rsity, will be the g u e s t speaker o n Mother’s Day, May Moore 12, at Cornerstone Assembly of God in Sidney. He will present “John’s Gospel: So That You May Believe,” a 45minute performance of selected portions from the book of John. The service begins at 10:30 a.m. and is free to the public. The church is located at 1028 Park St. Moore is an associate professor of theater at Cedarville University, where he earned a degree in communication arts. He also obtained a Master of Fine Arts in classical acting at
George Washington University and a master’s degree in speech communication at Miami University. He has worked as a stage actor for CATCO, Actor’s Theatre and the Human Race Theatre. He has also performed as a voice-over artist for LeapFrog, Scott’s, LexisNexis, Glencoe Publishing and more. Moore said the presentation will allow people to experience the power of Jesus’ teachings, the miracles, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. On his website at www.lampandlightproductions.com, Moore states, “I love stories — reading them, writing them, and, especially, telling them. And the Bible is full of the greatest stories ever told! For years, I’ve been passion-
ate about helping people have a dynamic encounter with the Bible, bringing its stories to life in a way that reminds us that the Scriptures are about real people with real emotions. More importantly, those stories can bring about real change in our lives.” Cornerstone Pastor Harry Peterson said Moore’s presentations give an enriching, encouraging understanding of Bible truths that are the foundation of the Assembly of God church. Peterson said, “Moore’s way of teaching us about the Gospel of John is intriguing as he brings it to life for us. I hope people will take advantage of visiting with us on Mother’s Day and be part of this experience.”

FamilySearch.org redesign includes photo, story options SALT LAKE CITY — Digital technologies have progressively made family history work easier and more accessible. A new version of FamilySearch.org, which launched in April, makes family history research more interactive and conveniently collaborative, with added social media, photo and story elements that create a more personal family history experience for each user. FamilySearch, the world’s largest genealogy organization and a nonprofit sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has updated its website to enable individuals to work together with others online to build their family tree, compile and share family photos and stories, create interactive fan charts and access 24-7 online assistance — all for free. The site’s enhancements seek to broaden family history’s appeal to those who don’t consider themselves researchers or genealogists, especially youth who are masters of digital realms such as social media. That is, until now. FamilySearch.org’s new features, which are free to the public, are described below. • Family Tree enables individuals to collaborate to build, manage and share family history online. Users will discover information submitted by other users in their family line among the more than 900 million names already submitted by online users. Family Tree also includes a click-and-drag feature that allows users to seamlessly move up, down and side to side and zoom in and out within a pedigree chart. Patrons also have access to billions of names on FamilySearch.org to help fill in missing branches on the tree. • The Photos and Stories options allow users to preserve photos and stories of ancestors. With photos, faces can be identified and then linked to the respective ancestors’ profiles in a user’s family tree. Photos and stories can also be seamlessly shared via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and email. Each user can upload as many as 5,000 photos (with five-megabyte-perimage limit), and each story can be up to 100 pages long. According to FamilySearch CEO Dennis Brimhall, photos and stories
matter, because they “personally teach us time-honored principles from those who have gone on before us, like the value of hard work, dealing with life’s ups and downs and the impact of choices.” • Interactive fan charts present one’s ancestry lines in a colorful wheel, with the user at the center. Each layer of the wheel represents a different generation, and the wheel extends out to as many as six generations if such information is available. Fan charts can be used in a variety of ways. For example, some parents have printed out a fan chart for each child, with the child’s name at the center so they can see themselves in the context of a larger family that extends out for generations. • Family Tree Wizard: This feature is for family history novices. Family Tree Wizard asks new users questions about living and deceased ancestors and then builds connections into the family tree. • Live Help Page: FamilySearch has created a global online community that provides free product help and personal research assistance by phone and web chat all day, every day. Within several weeks, the website will be available in nine other languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. Three million people use FamilySearch records, resources and services each month to learn more about their family history. Since 1894, FamilySearch and its predecessors have been actively gathering, preserving and sharing genealogical records worldwide. Patrons can access FamilySearch services and resources for free at FamilySearch.org or through more than 4,600 family history centers in 132 countries, including the main Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. The local Family History Library is located at 3060 Terry Drive, Fairborn. Call (937) 8789551 for more information. It is open Thursday-Saturday. FamilySearch’s commitment to helping people connect with their ancestors is rooted in the Mormon belief that families are meant to be central to our lives and that family relationships are intended to continue beyond this life.

The board went into executive session to discuss personnel for the purpose of contract renewal. The board took a number of personnel actions, including hiring Corrine Metzger as a tutor at $18.50 per hour and Jeff McPheron as a junior varsity coach. The board approved one-year teaching contracts for Heather Thaman, Ashlee Zimpfer and Jacquelyn Russell; a two-year contract for Maria Westgerdes; personnel in the middle of three-year contracts, Phil Groves, Vicki Steinke, Paula Owen and Brian Trego; threeyear contracts for Dan Knepper and Kris Vordemark; and a continuing contract for Ryan Gut-
man. The board approve Nancy Brown as staff eligible for a continuing contract and Adam Fullenkamp, athletic director, as staff in the middle of a continuing contract that expires July 14.

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) celebrated National Volunteer Week with recognition events that honored volunteers in each of organization’s service areas. During the recognition event which was held at Cornerstones of God Assembly Church, Evelyn Martz, who volunteers for Agape Distribution, was named Shelby County New Volunteer of the Year. Grace Steenrod was honored for Longest Volunteer Service for 17 years of service, and the Multi-Talented Award went to Leon Stockman, who works as a mobile food driver, in maintenance, in food preparation and as a driver. “We know our RSVP volunteers are passionate about their service and dedicated to improving nonprofits and people’s lives through

engagement in their communities” said Greg Morrow, RSVP director. “RSVP in Shelby County has volunteers that work with young children to cultivate a love of learning through the Reading Buddies and Project More literacy programs, other volunteers that work as paralegals, and our everyday volunteers that answer phones and work as receptionists in nonprofit offices. All of the volunteers are important and fulfill a need that probably can’t be met any other way.” In the four, county, service areas, RSVP volunteers served 7,921 hours. “Now we could try to put a monetary value on those hours of work and the amount would surprise you, but volunteering should not be measured in dollars. Volunteering is people creating a vibrant cul-
ture where an act of kindness is given freely. Volunteering is helping, not hiring; giving, not contributing, taking; not counting. Volunteerism is local citizens doing work in extraordinary ways that connect a community together,” Morrow said. The local recognition was also sponsored in part by Wilson Memorial Hospital, Allison’s Custom Jewelry, Emerson Climate and Bob Evans. RSVP is always looking to engage volunteers and find innovative ways to encourage new volunteers to join in their community. People 55 and older looking for something new to do can call Connie Kinsella at 4928225 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk with her about all the opportunities.
Tips for taking control of retirement income
No iPod for Keith Richards
example, CNN Money’s online calculator factors in your age, current income and savings to determine what you should be saving yearly to support 80 percent of your pre-retirement income. Visit the website, cgi.money.cnn.com/tools to determine your goals. • Create a diversified portfolio: Research shows that the single best thing you can do for your retirement portfolio is to diversify holdings. That means splitting money between different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, cash and commodities. Each asset class behaves differently under different market conditions. For example, when a recession hits, some asset classes might rise while others fall. Diversifying means that your portfolio should be more stable. How should you slice the pie? That depends on three things: your tolerance for risk, your goals, and the number of years until retirement. • Select the best investments: Next, you’ll need to pick specific funds for each asset class. You might decide, for example, to put 20 percent of your portfolio in funds that represent
the stocks of large, stable companies. Which funds should you choose? When you’re making that choice, you’ll want to look at “fund characteristics,” such as the fees it charges, its historic returns, its volatility, and other factors. If this sounds complex, don’t worry. There are resources that can help. For example, Portfolio Manager, a new service from Jemstep, analyzes your current portfolio, gives you a personalized investment strategy, and offers stepby-step instructions on what to buy and sell to build the ideal portfolio for you. More information is available at Jemstep.com. • Stay on track: Things change over time. Stocks rise and fall. As they do, the weight of your different asset classes in your portfolio will change. Remember to periodically “rebalance” your portfolio with your diversification goals so you can maintain your target weights. Retirement investing doesn’t have to be complex or intimidating, especially if you have the right tools at your fingertips.

Cedar Point is ‘Top Thrill’ for Physics Class BY: ELLIE CAIN Every year, Sister Ginny Scherer takes her physics classes to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Cedar Point, opened in 1870, is the second oldest running amusement park in the United States behind Lake Compounce. It is also home to many well-known roller coasters in America. High school Physics classes from around the state of Ohio attend the park every year for “Physics Day.” This year, the day is May 16 and the park is open only to Physics students so that they can use the rides to calculate specific equations. Lehman students will leave school at 7 a.m. They will take a bus up to the park, and not return home until at least 9 p.m. During the day, they will be riding the rides and “understanding the practicality of physics,” said Sister Ginny. Since the problems done on the trip make up half of their final exam, before they can really relax and enjoy the park, the students have to complete worksheets, using everything they have learned over the course of this year. They are to bring stop watches, calculators, protractors, anything they might need to determine the answer to the equations. There are a few set rides that Sister Ginny requires them to ride, along with a partner. Sister Ginny has another motive for attending the Cedar Point Physics Day each year. She loves roller coasters. Out of all of the rides Cedar Point has had to offer over the years, she said her favorites are Raptor and Millennium Force.
From Cavs to Raiders BY: ALLY BERGMAN Although some seniors are still deciphering the next step for their futures, most have already made commitments to their colleges. It looks as though Wright State University will be seeing an influx of Lehman students. As of now, seven Lehman seniors plan on spending the next four years at Wright State University, Dayton campus. Wright State has a variety of great programs to prepare students for future careers which is why these seven students have all chosen this college. Senior Emilie Cavinder plans to major in Nursing; Katie Rossman wants to study Psychology; Andrew Gilardi has chosen Business; Kennedy McIver plans to major in Physical Therapy; and Brian Bach-Nguyen has chosen Engineering. Danny Davis and Stephany McEldowney are still undecided as to their majors. Senior Katie Rossman says she is ready to be on the Wright State campus adding, “I’m excited to meet new people but also love that other Lehman students will be there. It’s also so great to be starting the process of preparing for my career.” Fellow classmate Danny Davis also expressed his excitement for a new start. “I’ve had a lot of good times at Lehman but I’m really pumped for college,” he said. “I can’t wait to be a Raider.” At least seven out of 44 Lehman seniors will be attending the same college. While it’s a sure thing they will meet a lot of great new friends, they will still have their own small Lehman family with them.
Arranged marriage BY: KENNEDY MCIVER In our culture, we rarely hear about arranged marriages, but one of our class of 44 seniors is facing this interesting challenge. Senior and international student Brian Bach-Nguyen is engaged to Bella back in Vietnam. In an arranged marriage, the bride and groom are selected by a third party rather than by each other. “I don’t have any say dealing with whom they choose for me, and honestly I would rather choose someone by myself because I want to have a say in whom I marry,” said Nguyen. Most people don’t understand the concept of why they continue to have arranged marriages. In some countries, they base it on religion, money, reputation, fitness, family and horoscope, but in Nguyen’s case they based his choice on lifestyle. “They matched us up because we expressed the same lifestyle idea. We both wanted to live in America and go to college and be together,” said Nguyen. When I think of arranged marriages, I think of parents matching you up with people they like, but someone you don not like. Thankfully, Nguyen’s case is different. “I actually like Bella very much,” he said. As we contemplate graduation and going on to college and careers of our own choosing, we wonder how they are going to make this work. Bella is coming to America to attend Ohio State University. Nguyen is very excited to help her get settled in America. Nguyen plans to attend Wright State University next fall and transfer to Ohio State University the following year when they will wed. We wish best of luck to both of them for their future life together here in America.
Mary’s month BY: MADILYN BROWN In the Roman Catholic Church, the month of May is known to be dedicated to the Virgin Mary, Mother of God. Catholics all over the world participate in celebrating and honoring the Virgin Mary by having a “May crowning,” laying a wreath of flowers on the statue of Mary. At Lehman, this has become quite a tradition. “Lehman has celebrated May Crowning as long as I can remember,” said Mr. Henry Cordonnier, religion teacher. Every year the seniors vote for three seniors girls to lead this ceremony. The girl with the most votes gets to put the crown on Mary’s head while the other two assist her in saying the prayers, carrying the crown, etc. Girls chosen are to exemplify qualities of purity, modesty, sacrifice, and devotion to the Blessed Mother. The girls are not the only participants in this celebration. We all join in by singing the song “Immaculate Mary” and reciting the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary prayers. It is no coincidence that May is also the month in which we celebrate Mother’s Day. It is a great time to celebrate our own mothers as earthly examples of the greatest Mother of all time, the Blessed Mother. “Kids are always picking flowers for their moms to show their love,” said Mr. Cordonnier. “Crowning Mary with a wreath of flowers and laying flowers at her feet is a symbol of our love for Her as the Mother of the Church.”

Elections board discusses pay reinstatement The Shelby County Board of Elections at its recent meeting discussed reinstating board pay that was cut several years ago because of economic problems, but took no action on the matter. Chris Gibbs, board chairman, asked the board to consider reinstating board compensation that was reduced by 10 percent in June 2009 and is still in effect. Compensation for board members is set by statue in the Ohio Revised Code (ORC). Board member Jim Thompson asked if board members could give themselves a raise. Dawn Billing, board director, stated it was not a raise because in 2009 the board voted to voluntarily take a 10 percent decrease, along with some of the elected officials, to help with the general fund shortage due to the economy. Gibbs clarified that
he was inquiring if members wanted to consider reinstatement of the correct amount as set in the ORC. No action was taken. Billing will calculate the correct compensation amount and make members aware of the difference. In other business, the board discussed the Summer Conference. Billing reviewed the dates received from the Secretary of State’s Office. Conference will be one full day and one half-day on June 26 and 27. Billing will forward more information about the conference as soon as it is available. Billing and Philip Warnecke, deputy director, stated all is moving forward for the special election on Tuesday. Training and supply pickup will be on Saturday. The next meeting will be Tuesday at 6 a.m.

GOBA food stands in GOBAville and on the courtsquare, where entertainment options, as well as the food, will be available to the riders and to the public. “GOBA provides a template for success,” Raible said in explaining how cities hosting stopovers prepare for the onslaught of cyclists. “If we make it easy, they’ll be out spending money in our town.” GOBA estimates the economic impact of a one-night stay is $50,000-$75,000. The Shelby County Visitors Bureau is the coordinator. local Raible said most of the riders will arrive in Sidney midmorning on June 21, although some could get here as early as 8 a.m. He noted that area volunteers are already busy with plans to cover campgrounds, logistics, transportation, emergencies, entertainment, food and information. Mark Barhorst, with Sidney City Schools, is heading a committee to oversee camping and transportation. Chad Hollinger, with Sidney Police, leads the emergency services committee. Dawn Eilert, vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, is chairwoman of the food committee. Ellen Keyes, executive director of Gateway Arts Council, will oversee entertainment and Deb Barga, president of the Rotary Club, is chairing the information booth committee. The booth will be staffed by Rotary volunteers. GOBA pays varying amounts to cover the costs of expenses that venues incur to accom-
BALLOT The district has kept costs down while retaining services and even offering programs unavailable in other county schools, Mascho noted. Fairlawn offers free programs for college credit through Urbana University that are taught at Fairlawn. The school has an iPad program, offering use of the latest technology to the student body. The district does not charge for extracurricular activities, as many districts do. Busing is not restricted to a certain distance from the school and is available to all Fairlawn students. The school has an all-day kindergarten program, as well as a preschool program for Fairlawn district 4-year-olds to help them be ready for kindergarten. District employees are continuing to work on a three-year pay freeze that has already been negotiated for next year. Fairlawn district voters have supported the levy in the past as the school has proven its abil-

modate the project. The school system will receive $2,500 to host the group and $1,200 toward transportation, Raible said. The plan is to use school buses as shuttles among GOBAville, Vandemark Farm, Tawawa Park, Rolling Hills and BelMar Lanes, eateries on the west end of town and the courtsquare. Campers pay $5 per person to sleep inside. The Sidney Music Boosters will organize the camping and receive those monies. GOBAville will include mobile showers and portable toilets that travel with the group. There will also be a medical RV parked at the middle school. No open fires are permitted and GOBA is a nonalcoholic event. The Sidney Athletic Boosters have volunteered to help take luggage and gear from the support trucks to the individual campsites of riders. “They’ll work for tips,” Raible said. The Sidney tennis courts will serve as a locked bike corral. The city of Sidney will receive $1,000$1,500 and the Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office will receive $1,000 for emergency services. They will provide escorts to assure riders’ safety on the road and

That would be an issue that we would discuss at a future board meeting if there is a need.” Also on Tuesday, some Logan County and Auglaize County voters will have issues to consider. The village of Quincy will have two levies on the ballot, each for 2 mills, which will each generate approximately $11,000 per year. One is a general operating levy and the other is designated for street repair. Auglaize County voters who live in the Marion Local School District will be voting on a 13.8mill, five-year levy that is a renewal and an increase for the district.
police and EMTs in GOBAville and on the courtsquare. GOBA provides $1,200 to the entertainment committee. The Sidney Civic Band will perform on the courtsquare that evening. In addition, the following activities have been scheduled: a disc jockey playing music on the courtsquare during the day, zip-lining at Vandemark Farm, racquet sports and swimming at the YMCA, swimming in Tawawa Park, walking tours of downtown Sidney hosted by the Shelby County Historical Society, bingo and movies at the Sidney First United Methodist Church, the movie, “Jimmy,” at the Historic Sidney Theatre, skating at Rolling Hills, bowling at BelMar Lanes, and a beer tasting and exhibit of photos by GOBA photographers at the Gateway Arts Council galleries. The Masonic Lodge is offering a breakfast to campers who stay there. The Amos Memorial Public Library will give riders Internet service and a place to recharge their cell phones. Choice One Engineering is creating maps to help riders find their way to various sites around town. The Sidney Daily News will publish Sidney-focused booklet that will be distributed to all riders, Raible said. He has encouraged businesses to put welcome signs on their marquees. “When you get the right partners, it makes all the difference,” he said, praising local efforts to make the event successful.
Sidney Recreation Board The rotation of officers, donations for swimming lessons, a batting helmet grant, park ranger update. early bird swimming pool ticket sales and the Born Learning Trail will be on the agenda when the Sidney Recreation Board meets at 4:15 p.m. Monday in Sidney City Council Chambers.
JORDAN He said there has been some headway made, thanks to the sequestration, which cut government spending by $85 billion. While admitting that there is much more work to be done to trim the deficit, “it’s a good first step.” Jordan took shots at leaders of government agencies who blamed the sequestration for a variety of problems. Jordan said he asked one bureaucrat testifying before a subcommittee he sits on when the sequestration legislation passed. Jordan informed him that the bill passed Aug. 2, 2011. “You had 20 months to get ready for it, for goodness sake,” Jordan said. He was particularly upset by remarks made by Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. “He said 40,000 teachers would get pink slips because of sequestration,” he said. “The Washington Post gave him four Pinocchios out of a possible four Pinocchios,” saying Duncan lied to the American people. Jordan said he has seen some encouraging developments recently, notably the push back on gun control and sequestration. “We’re still Americans and we don’t care what the hurdle is, we’ll overcome it, we’ll deal with and we’ll get through it,” he said. “It’s in our DNA.” After making his remarks, Jordan took questions from a large crowd on subjects ranging from immigration reform to wind energy. The questions from the audience included a challenge from a man who wanted Jordan to introduce legislation to impeach President
From Page 1 Barack Obama. Jordan said the opportunity to change presidents was in November and that he wasn’t going to push for impeachment. His response led the man to call him an obscenity, which brought laughter from the crowd. “This is the best town hall meeting I’ve ever been at,” Jordan said at the end of the session, adding that he had never been chicken manure. Kathy Monnin, of Jackson Center, and Dave Hemmert, of Botkins, were among several attendees who asked Jordan to take action against efforts in Shelby County to develop wind farms. “I have four children and I don’t want it,” Monnin said. Hemmert contended that taxpayers money for energy subsidies for wind power is going overseas, saying a company promoting wind turbines is Shelby County is from Scotland. “They’re using our tax dollars to ruin our lives,” Hemmert said. Jordan said wind power and other forms of alternative energy are supported by the president and other Democrats. “Until we get a different Senate and a new president, we’re not going to stop it.” He said the president is not going to sign legislation to stop green energy subsidies. “The bottom line is it’s too expensive,” Jordan said of alternative energy. He said natural gas and oil are better for the economy, despite opposition from Democrats. “We’re now going to be an exporter of natural gas,” he said, noting that the development of nat-
ural gas reserves in eastern Ohio is one of the reasons why Ohio’s unemployment rate is lower than some states. When asked about immigration reform, Jordan while he likes Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, he’s not in support of a proposed immigration reform bill. Noting that the release of 2,228 detainees, including 647 criminals was blamed on sequestration, he doesn’t think the administration can be trusted to follow through with securing the border with Mexico. “Nobody trusts Janet Napolitano (secretary of Homeland Security),” Jordan said. “I’d like to see Obamacare defunded,” said Mary Schmiesing, of Sidney. Jordan said he supports defunding or repealing the health care act. “I’ve voted 30 or 40 times to repeal it,” he said. “It’s tough to repeal Obamacare when he’s the guy in the White House who would have to sign it.” Sidney resident John Laws spoke out against foreign aid. “Why are we spending all this money on these foreign countries?” Laws asked. Jordan agreed that foreign aid is out of hand. “You help your friends, not your enemies,” he said. Cheryl Corthell, of Sidney, called for a end to tax credits for energy. Jordan agreed that the tax code should be simplified. He had commented earlier that he doesn’t think “one form of energy should have an advantage over another. “Let the market work,” he said, instead of giving tax dollars to companies that often go bankrupt.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, May 3, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) If shopping today, you’ll be tempted by elegant luxuries. (You want to reward yourself.) When it comes to finances, be careful, because things might not be as good as they look. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel sympathetic to the underdog today and will go out of your way to help someone. You’ll find it rewarding to be part of a group that does charitable activities. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You won’t mind putting yourself second if you can help someone today, because you feel selfless and sympathetic. This is a great day to practice a kindness. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might be active in groups today, especially nonprofit or charitable groups that seek out ways to help others. In fact, you can influence any group to be more caring and humane. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You have a clear perception of your relationship with authority figures. (It’s almost as if you can read minds.) You instinctively know what they expect of you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Travel for pleasure will delight you today. You also will enjoy being surrounded by beauty, gorgeous buildings, pristine parks and the creative work of others. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) If sharing something with someone today, you will be more than fair because you feel generous. (This is all very well, but don’t give away the farm.)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Family discussions can be meaningful today because everybody knows what everyone else wants. People are not hiding things. Everyone is willing to share. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Although you can clearly pick up on many things today, you might spend time daydreaming or living in a fantasy world. That’s because your imagination is so activated! YOU BORN TODAY You have charm, intelligence and a strong intuition. Because of this, you have much to teach others. You are a realist, but you also are pragmatic and practical. Your wit can make others laugh. Privately, you sometimes demand too much of yourself and others. In your year ahead, set aside time for study or course work, because you will learn something valuable.

Cards handle Reds again Reds finally get day off today after playing 20 straight days ST. LOUIS (AP) — Fast starts are becoming routine for Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals. Lynn won his 10th straight decision, allowing one run and five hits in seven innings Wednesday to lead the Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds 4-2. Lynn (5-0) struck out five and walked two, improving to 10-0 in 10 starts and one relief appearance since losing to Milwaukee on Sept. 7. He became the NL’s first five-game winner. “It’s early — but it’s fun so far,” Lynn said. He was 6-0 with a 1.48 ERA through May 7 last season, then went 12-7 with a 4.46 ERA the rest of the way. Leading the NL Central at the start of May for the sixth straight year, St. Louis has won six of its last nine. “To be able to pitch like this and win games, it feels good,” Lynn said. “I just go out there, concentrate and keep trying to improve every day.” Lynn retired the leadoff hitter six times. He also slapped a fifth-inning single to break out of an 0 for 52 slump. In addition, he set down a perfect bunt in the sixth inning. “That bunt, that’s what I’m most happy abut,” he said. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny applauded Lynn’s, “bulldog tenacity.”

gray area of the rule book when NASCAR confiscated the parts. NASCAR docked both drivers 25 points, fined the two crew chiefs $100,000 each and suspended seven Penske team members. “It’s clear we have a process, and I am better off to wait to see that conclude and at that point I can make any other personal comments I want to make about this,” Penske said. “All I can say about the process is that I think it’s fair and equitable and we had the opportunity to explain the case and situation in detail and obviously the information we were able to demonstrate to the panel, they determined they would uphold the appeal.” The decision was not surprising. Since NASCAR began keeping records in 1999, the panel has upheld 106 of 150 appeals. Keselowski seemed to hint he’d already accepted his fate when he tweeted earlier Wednesday from a tire test at Indianapolis: “Inner peace is easily achievable once you realize that sometimes all you can do is hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Bengals try to diversify running game CINCINNATI (AP) — Six years passed before the Bengals drafted a running back in anything other than one of the last rounds, an indication the position wasn’t all that much of a priority. Now they’re getting serious about diversifying their running game. The Bengals took tailback Giovani Bernard from North Carolina in the second round last week, showing a determination to address one of their shortcomings. They hadn’t drafted a running back higher than the sixth round since 2007, when they took Kenny Irons from Auburn in the second round. It became a priority after last season, when the Bengals failed to run for at least 100 yards in 10 games. They didn’t reach 100 yards in four consecutive losses that led to a 3-5 start. Cincinrecovered and nati reached the playoffs, but

the running backs at the various pre-draft workouts. “I try to pick out a position each year where I want to go and see the guys, and running back was my position this year,” Lewis said. The running back spot has been in transition in Cincinnati the last few years. The Bengals became a grind-it-out team in the late 2000s, with some success. They couldn’t throw it enough to get beyond the first round of the playoffs. They let Cedric Benson leave after the 2011 season, looking to get a running back that was more diversified and a better fit for their new West Coast offense. BenJarvus GreenEllis signed from New England, giving them a reliable starter known for running between the tackles. They had Bernard Scott as a change-of-pace back, but he suffered hand, ankle
Orb made 7-2 favorite for Kentucky Derby LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Orb has been made the early 7-2 favorite for the Kentucky Derby, with undefeated Verrazano the second choice in a full field of 20 horses. Trained by Shug McGaughey, Orb drew the No. 16 post on Wednesday. Four horses have won from there, most recently Animal Kingdom two years ago. McGaughey is in racing’s Hall of Fame, but the 62year-old trainer has yet to win the Derby in six previous tries. Orb comes into Saturday’s big race on a fourrace winning streak. He won the Florida Derby in his last start. Wood Memorial winner Verrazano drew the No. 14 post and is the 4-1 second choice. The colt is one of a record-tying five starters trained by Todd Pletcher. He won his first and only Derby in 2010 with Super Saver. Santa Anita Derby winner Goldencents is the third choice at 5-1 and will break from the No. 8 post. He’s trained by Doug O’Neill, who won last year with I’ll Have Another. Another Pletcher horse, Revolutionary, is

Owner threatens to move Cubs CHICAGO (AP) — The owner of the Chicago Cubs for the first time publicly threatened to move the team out of Wrigley Field if his plans for a big, new video screen are blocked, saying Wednesday he needs new advertising revenue to help bankroll a $500 million renovation of the storied ballpark. Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts until now had said nothing as dire, despite months of contentious negotiations over how to keep everyone happy in sprucing up the 99-year-old stadium in the heart of Wrigleyville on Chicago’s North Side. “The fact is that if we don’t have the ability to generate revenue in our own outfield, we’ll have to take a look at moving ‚— no question,” Ricketts told reporters after outlining renovation plans to Chicago business leaders.

THIS ARTIST rendering provided Wednesday by the Chicago Cubs shows renovations planned at Wrigley Field. Part of the $500 million renovation plan for the 99-year-old stadium is to build an exterior plaza at the corner of Addison and Sheffield. He added that he remains committed to working out a deal and it is difficult to imagine the Cubs playing anywhere else. But the fight over the Friendly Confines boils down to money and, of course, something unusual — it’s the Cubs, after all. By far the thorniest issue is the plan for a 6,000-square-foot video screen over left field, a common feature in many major league ballparks.
The difference is that Wrigley Field — the second oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball behind Fenway Park in Boston — is surrounded by privately owned clubs with rooftop bleachers whose owners object to any changes that could block their bird’s-eye views into the stadium. The rooftop businesses have been left out of discussions on the proposed upgrade, but they feel they should
have a seat at the bargaining table because they have a contract in which they share 17 percent of their revenue with the Cubs. Legal action is a possibility. Ricketts presented an architectural rendering of the video screen during his speech to the City Club of Chicago and insisted that the team’s own studies have shown it would have minimal, if any, impact on the views. He described the sign as “midsize” compared with those at other stadiums, thought it is nearly three times as large as the scoreboard currently atop the centerfield bleachers. Another smaller sign with the name of a sponsor is planned for right field. He said without such signage, the team was losing out on $20 million a year in ad revenue — essential for helping fund the extensive renovations without dipping into taxpayer funds.
and knee injuries that limited him to two games last season. Cincinnati finished 18th in the league in yards rushing. The Bengals ran for only 14, 47 and 80 yards in the final three games. “We can’t have one facet of our offense rolling and the other facet kind of sluggish and the other half picking it up,” said GreenEllis, who finished with a career-high 1,094 yards. “We’ve got to have all those things working in continuity together. “That’s what was the biggest (shortcoming) about us. We started off and our passing was very good, our run was shaky. Then our run is good, and our pass is shaky. That can’t happen. We have to have them going together at the same time.” The Bengals haven’t had much luck lately in drafting running backs in the early rounds.
They made Chris Perry their top pick in 2004, but he was hurt and managed only 606 yards in four seasons. Irons tore a knee ligament in preseason as a rookie, sidetracking his career. The Bengals would like to have a running back that can blend into the passing game. Green-Ellis caught 22 passes for 104 yards last season. No other running back caught more than 11 passes. That’s what made Bernard appealing enough that the Bengals were willing to get him in the second round. He caught 45 passes in 2011 and 47 last season at North Carolina. “We’re looking for a guy who would fit what we do, who can catch and run with it,” running backs coach Hue Jackson said. “But you also have to be able to pass-protect and be multifaceted. The young man has that skill set.”

He had always been a fan of Storm Center 7 meteorologist Jamie Simpson and the all weather channel, WHIO-TV Weather Now. Sean’s adoration has shifted from Simpson to Collura in recent years. Knowing she would be at the Dayton Home Show,
LONGFELLOW STUDENT Sean Sullenberger sits at the WHIO-TV Channel 7 news desk with Erica Collura, a Storm Center meterologist. Sean’s mother Michelle Martin reached out to Collura and told her how much Sean would love to
meet her. Sean and his at the home show. mother battled the win“We went straight to ter elements on Febru- the booth and there she ary 2nd to meet Collura was. Sean was smiling so
big! He was nervous but he said hi and shook her hand,” said Michelle. “She talked with him for a while and he enjoyed every minute of it! We took some pictures and left. As we were walking away, he said he wished she would come to his school, so I said let’s go ask!” Collura agreed to visit Longfellow, but she also invited him and his family to visit the WHIO-TV studio where he could give his own forecast using the green screen. Sean and his family visited the studio on Feb. 16 where Sean got to learn how to do the forecast by looking at the TV monitors to the sides of the green screen. With a clicker in his hand, Sean flipped from screen to screen to report the weather. The family then got to watch the noon
news live with Mark Bruce and Collura. Collura then took the family on a tour of the studio and showed them the sky-deck. “I have made a new friend with Erica and she calls Sean her main bud,” said Michelle. “I have a feeling we may be hanging out at the studio more this summer!” Collura spoke to Longfellow students about the different types of severe weather and the “ingredients” necessary for each severe weather storm. From everyday thunderstorms to hurricanes and tornados, Collura hit on many of the weather-related science standards the students will be facing on their upcoming Ohio Achievement tests, engaging students along throughout the presentation.

Memory is a lovely lane, where hearts are ever true. A lane I so often travel down, because it leads to you. Oh how we wish he/she was here today, to see all the blessings we have. Yet somehow you know that he/she is guiding us on our paths. Tenderly we treasure the past with memories that will always last. Remembering you on this day, comforted by so many memories. In the hearts of those who loved you, you will always be there. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. . Loved always, sadly missed. Forever remembered, forever missed.

Throttle Up/Throttle Down RICHARD CHILDRESS RACING After a season in which none of its three drivers had scored a top 5, RCR got a pair Saturday night at Richmond – including the win, by Kevin Harvick. Jeff Burton survived the last-minute chaos to finish fifth. BRAD KESELOWSKI Saturday night was a tough one for the defending champion. A blown tire sent him into the wall, and late in the race he was blackflagged by NASCAR for not meeting the minimum speed requirement. He finished 33rd, his worst run of the year.

Race: Aaron’s 499 Track: Talladega Superspeedway Location: Talladega, Ala. When: Sunday, May 5 TV: FOX (1:00 p.m. EST) Layout: 2.66-mile tri-oval Banking/Turns: 33 degrees Banking/Tri-oval: 18 degrees Banking/Backstretch: 2 degrees 2012 Winners: Brad Keselowski (May); Matt Kenseth (Oct.) Crew Chief’s Take: “Talladega is classic restrictor plate racing. I really don’t care for the place that much, but the fans love it because of the crashes and all that. I liked it when we were unrestricted and when guys could race a little and get away from one another and use the slingshot move. But that’s gone out the window, and you just ride around there and wait on the Big One to happen, which makes the drivers and crew feel sort of helpless. It’s all about being at the right place at the right time with the right push at the end.” NATIONWIDE SERIES Kevin Harvick celebrate his win in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway.

Kevin Harvick snags victory at Richmond in green-white-checker finish By MIKE HEMBREE
Kevin Harvick’s 2013 season, a lame-duck one for the veteran driver at Richard Childress Racing, hadn’t gone particularly well through the first eight races. He had a ninth at Las Vegas in the third race of the year, but there had been no other top-10 runs, and the team seemed to be battling a bad case of mediocrity. It led to some recent over-the-team-radio sniping between Harvick and crew chief Gil Martin. The possible salve for that situation arrived Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. Known as “The Closer” for the expertise he has shown in end-ofrace duels, Harvick demonstrated those abilities again Saturday by charging to the front during a green-white-checker finish and leading the final two laps to win the Toyota Owners 400, marking his first Sprint Cup victory since November 2012. It was the 20th career Cup win for Harvick, who plans to move to the Stewart-Haas Racing team next season. Saturday’s win appeared to be within the grasp of Juan Pablo Montoya, the former Formula One winner who owns a pair of Sprint Cup road-course victories but has not been able to score on a Cup oval track. He came frustratingly close at Richmond. Montoya led 67 straight laps
over the closing portion of the race and had a slim but sturdy lead over Harvick with the end of the event in sight. But everything changed four laps from the finish when Brian Vickers crashed in Turn 3, bringing out the race’s 11th and final caution. Montoya’s lead suddenly dissolved, and the severity of Vickers’ accident made it clear that the race would go into “overtime” and conclude with a green-whitechecker run. Most of the leaders dashed into the pits for fresh tires, while others — notably Jeff Burton and Jamie McMurray — stayed on the track with much older tires, planning to take a long shot at the victory. When the green flag fell for the final two laps, Harvick showed the value of new tires almost immediately, dropping low in the first turn and firing off Turn 2 down the backstretch to take a lead he never relinquished. Burton, McMurray and the others with older tires were sitting ducks. Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano followed Harvick through the traffic to finish second and third. Montoya took fourth, and Burton was fifth. “It all worked out,” Harvick said. “We were fortunate to have it all line up. I drove it in there, hoped for the best. I figured four, eight, 12 (tires on other cars), whatever was on the outside tirewise, would be plenty to lean
The Richmond results produced quite a bit of movement in the point standings. Carl Edwards jumped four spots to second (behind Jimmie Johnson), and Hendrick Motorsports teammates Kasey Kahne and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are tied for third. Clint Bowyer gained three spots to fifth, and defending champion Brad Keselowski, who had his worst night of the season with a 33rd-place run, fell to sixth. The points could be scrambled again this week as the tour moves on to Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama for the first of two seasonal races at the 2.66-mile track. Multicar crashes – and subsequent early-race exits – often are part of the challenge at Talladega. Aric Almirola is making some noise for Richard Petty Motorsports. With his third straight top-10 finish — an eighth at Richmond — Almirola moved to 11th in points, only 13 out of the top 10. Only three weeks ago, he was 16th. Major penalties handed recently to Penske Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing have teams on alert in the Sprint Cup garage, said driver Carl Edwards. He said everyone is taking extra care in hopes of avoiding NASCAR’s big hammer. “I think all of us are on guard, and we realize that NASCAR is very, very serious about staying within the rules and the spirit of the rules and that they’ve definitely gotten everyone’s attention in the garage,” Edwards said.

on, and, by the time we got to the backstretch, everything had cleared out.” Team owner Richard Childress said the late-race push to the front was “vintage Kevin Harvick. When they dropped that green, he found the hole, drove it through there, made it happen. Won the race.” Harvick said he probably would not have had a shot at the win without the late-race caution. “My car had lost drive up off the corner,” he said. “I think one thing that led to being so confident in my car on that last restart was our car had been really good on restarts for four or five laps. The car would turn, do all the things I wanted it to. I could be really aggressive with it on the restarts. “I think I had a better shot to win starting seventh (with new tires). I don’t think I was going to catch Montoya because he had a little bit better drive up off the corner at that point.” The chaos of the two-lap sprint to the finish resulted in some frayed tempers after the race. Both Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth were upset by the driving of Kurt Busch, who bumped both of their cars as he pushed to a ninth-place finish. Kenseth finished seventh, while Stewart, who had a shot at a top-5 run, dropped to 18th. Kenseth won the pole and led 140 laps — most in the first half of the race.
In an odd moment for a NASCAR facility, Charlotte Motor Speedway has made a significant change in the program for its pre-race show prior to the Sprint All-Star Race May 18. The track had announced country singer Billy Currington for the gig, but Currington recently was charged with making terroristic threats and abuse of an elderly person. He will be replaced at CMS by Josh Turner, also a country artist.

Classic Moments Talladega Superspeedway No one knew at the time that they were witnessing what would be Dale Earnhardt’s last Cup Series win. But everyone knew they were witnessing something special. Earnhardt, in vintage “Intimidator” fashion, used a strong draft from Kenny Wallace to rocket from 18th to first in four laps and win the 2000 Winston 500 at Talladega Superspeedway as 170,000 paying witnesses howled their approval. Earnhardt, who would lose his life in a crash on the final lap of the following year’s Daytona 500, won for the 10th time at Talladega — a track where he was worshipped like no other — and claimed the $1 million Winston No Bull 5 bonus money in addition to his race earnings. The win, his 76th, only added to the famous folklore that Earnhardt could “see the air” at Talladega and Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR’s two restrictor-plate tracks where drafting is the key to winning. Air vision or no air vision, Earnhardt had a knack for navigating Talladega like few others, and his victory that day served as the quintessential reminder.
Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Matt Kenseth (below) earned finishes of first, third, third and first at the circuits two restrictor plate track at Daytona and Talladega last season. Hard to top that. Pretty Solid Pick: Tony Stewart had the best car at Daytona in February before being caught up in an accident. Plus, he has ground to make up. Good Sleeper Pick: Since 2008, Ryan Newman has finished outside of the top 15 at RIR only once. He won’t win, but he’ll be solid. Runs on Seven Cylinders: A deep sleeper, David Ragan has three top-5 runs in 12 Talladega Cup Series starts. Insider Tip: A complete crap shoot, Talladega is as tough to handicap as any track in NASCAR. That said, think Daytona contenders Kenseth, Stewart, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, and Kasey Kahne. Then cross your fingers.

Series race at Richmond, but that fact almost was lost in the mayhem of postrace. Brian Scott and Nelson Piquet Jr., who had tangled on the track, also went head-to-head on pit road. Scott approached Piquet, and Piquet kicked him in a location Scott described as “below the belt.” Later, there was an altercation in the speedway driverowner motorcoach lot involving Piquet and two members of Scott’s crew. The crew members were arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault. GIBBS APPEAL Joe Gibbs stressed at Richmond that he is appealing recent NASCAR penalties levied against his No. 20 team because of the severity of the penalties. After Matt Kenseth’s engine was found to be illegal after his win at Kansas, NASCAR hit Kenseth and Gibbs with 50-point penalties, fined crew chief Jason Ratcliff $200,000 and suspended Ratcliff for seven races. Both Gibbs and Kenseth said the penalties were too severe, particularly considering the engine was built by Toyota Racing Development, not the Gibbs team. VICKERS BUSY Brian Vickers continues to drive in a substitute role for the injured Denny Hamlin, and he earned his pay at Richmond. Vickers was involved in at least three incidents, including a late-race crash that caused the final caution and dramatically changed the nature of the race. THE PATRICK REPORT Danica Patrick recently made an appearance on The Colbert Report, trading jabs with comedian/commentator Stephen Colbert. And she carried a Colbert decal on her car in the Richmond race. “I had a good time,” Patrick said. “I felt like he went kind of easy on me. I’m glad I’ve watched the show because I was prepared for anything.”
