Job growth slows again BY PAUL WISEMAN Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — One month of slower job growth might have been a blip. Two suggest a worrisome trend: The economy may be faltering again. The United States generated just 115,000 jobs last month, well below expectations and the fewest since October. The unemployment rate

fell to 8.1 percent, but for the wrong reason — workers abandoned the labor force. From December through February, employers added 252,000 jobs a month on average. But the figure dipped in March and dropped further in April, raising doubts about an economic recovery that can’t seem to reach escape velocity. The report Friday by the Labor Department indicated “an economy that is losing mo-

mentum — especially on the jobs front,” said Tom Porcelli, chief U.S. economist at RBC Capital Markets. It also dealt a blow to President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects. His presumed Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, called the report “very disappointing.” Romney said the country should be adding 500,000 jobs a month and said any unemployment rate above 4 percent

is “not cause for celebration.” The rate has not been that low seen since the last days of the Clinton administration. “We seem to be slowing down, not speeding up,” Romney said on Fox News Channel. “This is not progress.” Obama, at a Virginia high school to promote a freeze on interest rates for student loans, focused on the sixmonth total of more than 1 See JOBS/Page 7A

Nurse, Oh Nurse! By Tresa Erickson They check your blood pressure. They measure your height and weight. They listen to your heartbeat. They perform routine exams and sometimes even prescribe medication. They are nurses and they are responsible for many tasks in health care. Fortunately, there are hundreds of nurses of different types. Types of nurses in the United States include: • Licensed practical nurses. Nurses in this group typically have two years of training in nursing and have passed state and national boards. Many work under the supervision of physicians in offices, clinics and hospitals, while others work under the

supervision of registered nurses in longterm care facilities. • Registered nurses. Nurses in this group usually have a bachelor’s degree in nursing, plus many hours of clinical experience. They may practice nursing or perform any number of jobs from educators, managers and executives to therapists, mentors and researchers in a variety of settings. • Advanced practice nurses. Nurses in this group have a master’s degree or higher in nursing and may have additional certificates. They may practice as certified nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists or certified registered nurse anesthetists. • Doctorally prepared nurses. Nurses

in this group have a Ph.D. or another doctoral degree specializing in research and clinical nursing. Some practice nursing, while others teach and do research in the field of nursing. Although they are not technically considered nurses, there are other groups in health care that work alongside nurses and could be considered part of nursing. These include: • Nursing assistants. Individuals in this group may be certified and assist nurses in many ways from taking vital signs to providing hygienic care. Many work in hospitals and long-term care facilities. • Orderlies. Individuals in this group often help nurses transfer patients and

assist them with other duties. • Technicians. Individuals in this group often perform duties typically associated with nursing, such as passing out medication or drawing blood. They may work as certified medication aides, phlebotomy technicians, surgical technologists and machine operators. Individuals who work in the field of nursing play many different roles. Whether a technician or a registered nurse, all are important and make vital contributions to health care and to the care of patients in general. They are heroes to many.

WITNESS Fort Loramie, a former employee of the bar, allege defamation, interference with business relations, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false light and tortious interference with business advantage as part of their lawsuit. The lawsuit states that Van Fossen and “other undercover deputies or confidential informants had received five controlled (drug) buys” from Burnside, which the lawsuit alleges “never occurred” and were “completely false.” The lawsuit states that the alleged defamatory statements have caused Burnside to “suffer severe economic and personal relationship loss due to being labeled a drug dealer” and states that Rodriguez has “suffered severe economic loss due to being intentionally targeted by the false and misleading statement” allegedly made by Van Fossen and the John Does regarding drug activity at the Faultline Bar. The men claim the allegations damaged the reputation of the bar and Rodriguez and Burnside. The men are seeking amounts in excess of $25,000 for compensatory damages and in excess of $25,000 for punitive damages and attorney’s fees. Van Fossen’s attorneys have countersued on her behalf, alleging frivolous conduct and abuse of process. Her lawsuit claims that the original lawsuit was filed in an attempt to obtain a payment of money using civil process as a threat. Her attorneys are asking for legal fees for her defense against the claims in the original lawsuit. The lawsuit expenses are expected to be covered by Shelby County since Van Fossen was acting as a Shelby County Deputy at the time of the Anna drug investigations.

5 wild animals back on Ohio farm; safety debated COLUMBUS (AP) — Five exotic animals are back on the eastern Ohio farm where they lived months ago before their owner abandoned them and released dozens of other wild animals into the rural community, then killed himself. The widow of Terry Thompson picked up two leopards, two primates and a bear from the Columbus zoo on Friday and returned them to their former home in Zanesville where 50 animals — including black bears, mountain lions and Bengal tigers — were released Oct. 18. Authorities killed 48 of the animals, fearing for the public’s safety. Two others were presumed eaten by other animals. The surviving animals were found in cages and placed under quarantine at the zoo. Ohio’s agriculture director lifted the quarantine order Monday, after test results showed all five animals were free of dangerously contagious or infectious diseases. Thompson’s suicide, the animals’ release, and their killings led lawmakers to re-examine Ohio’s restrictions on exotic pets, which are considered some of the nation’s weakest. Now that Marian Thompson has retrieved the animals, nothing in Ohio law allows state officials to check on their welfare or require improvements to conditions in which they are kept. The state’s agriculture department says it

will be up to local authorities to be alert to their caretaking. “Ohio has done everything in its power to keep local officials informed throughout this process to ensure they had as much information as possible in advance of this threat returning to their backyard,” said David Daniels, the state’s agriculture director. Ohio lawmakers are considering legislation that would ban new ownership of dangerous animals — but grandfather in owners such as Thompson. The bill is on track to pass the Legislature this month. Should it become law, Thompson would have to register the animals with the state, obtain liability insurance and pay permit fees of at least $1,000 by 2014. She also would have to pass a background check, microchip the animals and meet strict new caretaking standards, including fencing requirements. For now, Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz said there is not much local authorities can do as long as the animals are being cared for properly. “At the first complaint we have, we’ll follow up,” he said. Ron Welch, the county’s assistant prosecuting attorney, said his office made several attempts to persuade Thompson’s attorney to allow an inspector, the sheriff and a humane officer to see the cages at

the property before the animals returned. They were denied. “We were very disappointed with that because we felt that we just wanted at that point to provide some sense of security to our citizens and our community that this was in fact a safe place for these animals to be kept,” Welch said. Thompson arrived at a loading area at the zoo mid-morning Friday, driving a pickup truck pulling a silver horse trailer. The two leopards growled as they were loaded into crates in the trailer. A forklift loaded a steel cage carrying the bear. Thompson put her hand on the metal cage, as if to comfort the animal. In smaller carriers, the monkeys were placed inside the backseat of the truck cab. Zoo staffers, including veterinarians and keepers, helped with the transfer. Two U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors were also on hand. Thompson ignored shouted questions from nearby news reporters. Thompson previously tried to get the animals back from the zoo, but the quarantine prevented her from taking them. Her home in Zanesville sits about a quarter-mile from a rural road, surrounded by fields and pastures where horses graze. A “Welcome Back!” balloon was tied to the mailbox, as her truck carrying the animals made its way down the property’s long lane.

Men indicted in rape case DAYTON (AP) — An adoptive father who’s been accused of raping three boys in his care was indicted along with another man Friday on rape charges. The 39-year-old adoptive father from Troy was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury on three counts of rape of a child under 13 and four counts of complicity to commit rape of a child under 13. Patrick Rieder, 31, of Dayton, was indicted on four counts of rape of a child under 13. The adoptive father is accused of bringing the boy to Rieder’s home, where both men engaged in sexual conduct with the child, county prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said. The men were intro-

duced in a chat room and eventually agreed to meet, Heck said. The Associated Press is withholding the father’s name to protect the child’s identity. All the counts carry a possible penalty of 10 years to life. Both men also were indicted with sexually violent predator specifications that would make the sentences 25 years to life on each count if the men are convicted. Rieder’s attorney didn’t immediately return calls for comment Friday. Court records don’t list an attorney for the adoptive father, who is in Miami County jail awaiting trial on 31 counts of rape involving three boys in his care. The adoptive father

was indicted in March in a Miami County on charges that he raped the three boys. A third man, 29-yearold Jason Zwick, of Beavercreek, was indicted in March in Miami County on three counts of rape. Prosecutors say he raped a boy in meetings arranged through the adoptive father. Both the adoptive father and Zwick have pleaded not guilty to the in Miami charges County. Zwick’s lawyer hasn’t returned messages for comment. Officials have said that the Troy man adopted three children, including a 9-year-old girl, and was in the process of adopting a fourth child.

Ohio court: Judge erred in Survivors want answers $2B award against Ford CLEVELAND (AP) — An appeals court this week has reversed a decision ordering Ford Motor Co. to pay nearly $2 billion in damages to thousands of commercial truck dealerships, sending the case back to the lower courts for a new trial. The decision Thursday by the 8th Ohio Court of Appeals overturned last year’s ruling that said the automaker had violated dealer agreements and overcharged for commercial trucks over an 11-year

period. It determined that a trial judge in Cleveland had abused his discretion in excluding possible evidence in Ford’s favor. The appeals court called the contract in question “ambiguous” and said it can be interpreted in different ways. It said a jury, which originally only heard certain arguments because some were excluded, should have heard all key arguments in the case. The appeals court also ruled that Cuyahoga County Common Pleas

Judge Peter Corrigan erred in not allowing Ford attorneys to challenge expert testimony from the plaintiffs when it was determining damages in the case. The class-action lawsuit, brought on by Westgate Ford Truck Sales of Youngstown in 2002, included dealers who purchased a series 600 truck or higher from Ford from 1987 to 1997. The lawsuit accused the automaker of violating its contract by failing to reveal that price concessions were given to some dealers. The jury awarded $4.5 million in damages to Westgate, to which about $6.7 million in interest was added. The Dearborn, Mich.-based Ford later appealed. The $2 billion award, which included a judgment of about $781 million and about $1.2 billion in interest, covered more than 3,000 dealerships around the country and about 474,000 trucks. Attorney James Lowe, who represents some of the dealers, said he hadn’t seen the decision and declined to comment Friday.

KENT (AP) — Seven people wounded by Ohio National Guard gunfire at Kent State University 42 years ago Friday have renewed an appeal for answers to lingering questions, such as whether an order to fire was given. “Our May 4 movement for truth and justice has continued for 42 years, and we will not desist until truth about this government crime is acknowledged by our government,” the group said Thursday on the eve of the anniversary of the shooting, which killed four people and helped galvanize opposition to the Vietnam War. The survivors are launching a campaign to persuade state and federal lawmakers and other officials to convene hearings to examine new evidence from the May 4, 1970, shootings. “We have undeniable, verifiable, digital, forensic, recorded evidence proving a shouted military command ending with the word ‘FIRE!’ preceded the barrage of 67 deadly gunshots fired by the Ohio National Guard on this campus,” the statement by survivors said. Backers of a renewed investigation said a 2010 analysis of a recently enhanced audio recording

concluded that someone may have ordered troops to prepare to fire during the campus protest. But the federal government said its review was inconclusive in determining whether the recording provided such evidence. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said last month on the issue of a command to fire that the government’s analyst showed “no military-like voice commands to fire or otherwise were heard; rather, many of the words heard were probably ut-

tered by several different individuals located closer to the microphone.” The original reel-toreel audio recording was made by Terry Strubbe, a student who placed a microphone in a window sill of his dormitory overlooking the anti-war rally. A copy of the audio tape was found in a library archive in 2007. The survivors asked Gov. John Kasich and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine to clear the way for an analysis of the tape by state crime laboratory investigators.

NATION/WORLD BRIEFLY

Johnson re-elected LONDON (AP) — London’s rumpled, comic and outspoken Boris Johnson has won a second term as mayor of the British capital, triumphing in a surprisingly close election that installs the unvarnished and unpredictable Conservative as host of the 2012 Olympics. Johnson’s victory, in election results confirmed late Friday, was a bright spot on a rough day for his colleagues in Prime Minister David Cameron’s governing Conservative Party, who took a drubbing in local elections. Voters stripped both the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats — the junior partner in Britain’s coalition government — of hundreds of local authority seats, punishing them for biting austerity measures and Britain’s stalled economy. Known best for his shock of blond hair, and sometimes shocking outbursts, the 47-year-old Johnson narrowly beat out the Labour Party’s Ken Livingstone — his predecessor as mayor — for the privilege of leading Britain’s capital into the global spotlight when the Summer Games begin on July 27. In his victory speech, Johnson thanked voters for giving him a “new chance” and promised to continue “fighting for a good deal for Londoners.”

Men fare worse CHICAGO (AP) — Men rarely get breast cancer, but those who do often don’t survive as long as women, largely because they don’t even realize they can get it and are slow to recognize the warning signs, researchers say. On average, women with breast cancer lived two years longer than men in the biggest study yet of the disease in males. The study found that men’s breast tumors were larger at diagnosis, more advanced and more likely to have spread to other parts of the body. Men were also diagnosed later in life; in the study, they were 63 on average, versus 59 for women. Many men have no idea that they can get breast cancer, and some doctors are in the dark, too, dismissing symptoms that would be an automatic red flag in women, said study leader Dr. Jon Greif, a breast cancer surgeon in Oakland, Calif. The American Cancer Society estimates 1 in 1,000 men will get breast cancer, versus 1 in 8 women. By comparison, 1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men.

Snake blamed for power outage OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Officials say a snake slithered into an Oklahoma City electric substation and knocked out power to about 10,000 customers overnight. Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. says the power outage affected customers in northwest Oklahoma City at about 2 a.m. Thursday. A spokesman tells Oklahoma City television station KWTV that workers found a snake in the transformer at the Lone Oak substation. OG&E says power was restored to all customers by 3 a.m.

9/11 trial returns to Gitmo BY BEN FOX Associated Press GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) — The man who once bragged about planning Sept. 11 “from A to Z” may mount a defense after all to charges that he orchestrated the worst terror attack in U.S. history, with families of the dead watching intently from the U.S. on closed-circuit TV. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, charged with four others with planning and helping to carry out the 2001 terror attack that sent hijacked jetliners into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, will be arraigned Saturday at the U.S. military base in Cuba. Mohammed had previously mocked the military tribunal and said he would welcome the death penalty. His co-defendant, Ramzi Binalshibh, also told the court he was proud of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pa. But “I don’t think anyone is going to plead guilty,” said Jim Harrington, Binalshibh’s civilian lawyer, who added the defendants are expected to fight the charges against them, which include murder and terrorism and carry a potential death penalty. Harrington declined to say what would be the basis of his

defense and lawyers for Mohammed did not respond to messages seeking comment. The men, held in a secret prison in Guantanamo that is under such tight security even its exact location on the base is classified, have not been seen in public since a pretrial hearing the day after Obama’s Jan. 21, 2009, inauguration. Their arraignment comes more than three years after the Obama administration’s failed effort to try the suspects in a federal civilian court and close the prison at the U.S. base in Cuba. Attorney General Eric Holder announced in 2009 that Mohammed and his codefendants would be tried blocks from the site of the destroyed trade center in downtown Manhattan, but the plan was shelved after New York officials cited huge costs to secure the neighborhood and family opposition to trying the suspects in the U.S. Six family members who won a lottery to attend the proceedings will face Mohammed and the other men in court; others were watching on closed-circuit video at military bases in New York City and the eastern U.S. Cliff and Christina Russell traveled from their Rockaway Beach neighborhood in New York to honor the memory of Cliff ’s younger brother, Stephen, a firefighter killed responding to the attacks.

Cliff Russell said he hopes the tribunal will end with the death penalty for Mohammed and his co-defendants. “I’m not looking forward to ending someone else’s life and taking satisfaction in it, but it’s the most disgusting, hateful, awful thing I ever could think of if you think about what was perpetrated,” he said. The men never entered formal pleas in previous hearings, but Mohammed had told the court that he would confess to planning the attacks and hoped to be a “martyr.” He dismissed the military justice system, saying, “After torturing, they transferred us to inquisition land in Guantanamo.” The arraignment is expected to be followed by a hearing on defense motions that challenge the charges and extreme secrecy rules imposed to prevent the release of information about U.S. counterterrorism methods and strategy. New rules adopted by Congress and Obama forbid the use of testimony obtained through cruel treatment or torture. The defendants were held at secret CIA prisons overseas where they were subjected to what the government called “enhanced interrogation techniques.” Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times, officials have said.

5 Philly priests removed after abuse inquiry BY MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Five priests will be permanently barred from ministry after the Philadelphia archdiocese substantiated allegations of sexual abuse or inappropriate conduct, a Roman Catholic archbishop said Friday. Three other suspended priests will return to ministry, and another died during the investigation, Archbishop Charles Chaput said. Another 17 cases remain under review, he said. “When a child is harmed, the church has failed. When trust is lost, the church has failed. When the whole community suffers as a result, the church has failed,” Chaput said. “We can’t change the past. But I pray — and I do believe — that the lessons of the last year have made our Church humbler, wiser, and a more vigilant guardian of our people’s safety.” Four of the five cases substantiated were said to involve “boundary” or “behavioral” problems, not sexual assaults. Yet a lawyer for one accuser said one of those four priests had raped his client at St. Timothy’s Parish rectory in Philadelphia in the

ARCHBISHOP OF Philadelphia Charles Chaput reads his statement during a news conference Friday in Philadelphia. Chaput announced that five priests were deemed unsuitable for ministry because of substantiated allegations of sexual abuse or other inappropriate conduct. early 1970s. “How do they define boundary issues, if somebody reports, credibly, that he was sexually raped — both orally and anally — as a 9-to-11year-old?” said the man’s lawyer, Daniel Monahan of Exton. The accuser, now in his 50s, contacted the archdiocese in 2006. He met last year with church investigators, a team led by a former child sexcrimes prosecutor and retired detective, and detailed his allegations, Monahan said. The announcements came as a former archdiocesan offi-

cial, Monsignor William Lynn, stands trial on child-endangerment and conspiracy charges. He faces up to 28 years in prison if convicted of helping the church cover up abuse complaints as the secretary for clergy from 1992 to 2004. Defense lawyers say he took orders from the late Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua. None of the accused priests whose fates were announced Friday could be reached for comment. Phone listings rang unanswered or had been disconnected, and their former parishes did not know their whereabouts.

JOBS million jobs created. But he said: “We’ve got to do more.” The 8.1 percent unemployment rate is the lowest since January 2009, the month Obama was sworn in. Still, the weak job growth caused stocks to fall sharply on Wall Street. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 1.6 percent and closed its worst week of the year. The price of oil fell more than 4 percent because of fears of a slowing economy, which should mean lower gasoline prices soon. Some of the slower job growth may be because an unusually warm winter allowed construction firms and other companies to add workers ahead of schedule in January and February, effectively stealing jobs from the spring. The weaker job growth in March and April “looks like some weather payback,” said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics.

ARMORED EGYPTIAN military vehicles block the road outside of the Ministry of Defense in Cairo, Egypt, Friday. Egyptian armed forces and protesters clashed in Cairo on Friday, with troops firing water cannons and tear gas at demonstrators who threw stones as they tried to march on the Defense Ministry.

Troops, protestors clash in Cairo BY MAGGIE MICHAEL Associated Press CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian troops blasted protesters with water cannons, tear gas and live ammunition, trying to prevent them from marching on the Defense Ministry Friday in clashes that left one soldier dead and scores of people injured just three weeks ahead of presidential elections. The fierce street battles raised fears of a new cycle of violence surrounding the upcoming vote to replace Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted more than a year ago. For the first time in Egypt’s chaotic transition, hard-line Islamists, rather than secular forces, were at the forefront of the confrontation with the military rulers who have been accused of trying to cling to power. The military council imposed an 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew on the area surrounding the Defense Ministry, which has emerged as a flashpoint for the protesters’ anger after nine people were killed on Wednesday in clashes between unidentified assailants and protesters who mainly comprised supporters of a disqualified Islamist presidential candidate. The violence has thrown the campaign for the May 2324 elections into turmoil, with two front-runners and several other candidates temporarily suspending their campaigns to protest the military’s handling of the situation.

From Page 1 The balmy weather probably exaggerated job growth in the winter and makes it look small now, Ashworth said. He expects job creation to settle into a lackluster range between 175,000 and 200,000. The economy may not be growing fast enough to produce anything stronger. Economists surveyed by The Associated Press expect the economy to grow 2.5 percent this year. That is consistent with monthly job growth of only about 135,000, according to calculations by Brad DeLong, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley. That is barely enough to keep up with population growth not nearly enough to recover the jobs lost in the Great Recession quickly. At this year’s pace, it will take until May 2014 to restore employment to its 2008 peak of 138 million.

The United States has only recovered 3.8 million, or 43 percent, of the 8.8 million jobs lost between the peak, in February 2008, and January 2010. David Boyce, 30, is one of those still looking for work. He lost his sales job two years ago and ran out of unemployment benefits in September. He and his wife, who is working reduced hours as a nanny, are struggling to get by. “We lived off savings for a while,” he said. “And now we’re living off ramen noodles basically.” April’s hiring slump was broad. Only two of 10 large categories tracked by the government, retailers and professional and business services, hired more workers in April than they did in March. The categories of manufacturing and education and health services added the fewest jobs in five months. Ho-

tels, restaurants and entertainment companies added the fewest in eight months. Friday’s report noted that that the average hourly wage went up one penny in April. Over the past year, average pay has increased 1.8 percent, almost a full percentage point shy of the inflation rate, which means the average American isn’t keeping up with price increases. Even April’s bright spot, the lower unemployment rate, fades on closer inspection. The government only counts people as unemployed if they’re looking for work. And 340,000 Americans stopped looking and dropped out of the labor force in April, which is why the unemployment rate fell slightly. The dropouts mean just 63.6 percent of working-age Americans were working or looking for work, the lowest since 1981.

Planting techniques subject of garden club meeting The Rainbow Gardeners learned about plant favorites and planting techniques during their April meeting recently. Patt Van Skiver provided the spring arrangement of tulips, Gerber daisies, grape hyacinths, boxwood, and daffodil foliage. Janell Welker, club member and co-owner of Progreen Nursery in Botkins, shared information on some of the new perennials and annuals for 2012, as well as some tried-and-true favorites. Before planting any annual in a container, hanging basket, or window box, she said, be sure to use potting mix, not garden soil. Potting mixes are lighter and allow for better drainage. Some potting mixes come with fertilizer mixed in. When using plain potting mix, add fertilizer if leaves start to lighten in color. To reduce damage due to disease, fungus, or insects, Welker uses an organic Neem oil product. It acts as an insecticide, fungicide and miticide. Neem oil comes from the seeds of an evergreen tree and is effective against biting, piercing and chewing insects. Butterflies, hummingbirds and bees can gather nectar, and pollen from plants sprayed with Neem without experiencing any harm. And good bugs, such as ladybugs and praying mantises, can safely eat affected insect pests on plants sprayed with Neem. When planting in the garden or landscape, remember to mulch around, not on top of

plants, Welker said. The idea is to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. Putting mulch on the crowns of plants or right next to stems and trunks invites diseases and provides a hiding place for insects, depending on the type of mulch used. Avoid using nonorganic materials such as stones and rocks, recycled rubber or plastic unless they’re made into stepping stones. Hundreds of new plant varieties and hybrids are introduced every year by a much smaller number of major plant growers and breeders. Proven Winners is one of the best known, she said, along with Ball, Suntory, Terra Nova, Monrovia, and Dummen. These breeders produce nearly identical plants with different names, making it difficult for gardeners to know how cultivars differ from one another. Welker recommended checking with a local greenhouse or nursery owner for the best information. The Spring Plant Sale Committee reminded members to pot plants they wish to donate for the May 26 sale on the court square. This is the opening day of the Farmer’s Market. Lavender-scented hand lotion will be sold, along with a variety of annuals, perennials, and garden accessories.

Any noncommercial gardener can enter his/her garden or a neighbor’s garden. For information, email Rainb o w G a r d e n ers@yahoo.com. The following horticultural tips were provided: • Cut an orange or grapefruit in half and remove the edible citrus. Fill the shells with potting mix and use them as containers to start seeds such as sunflower, cosmos, alyssum, dill, anise, daisies, fennel and coreopsis. Dill, anise and fennel are especially attractive to butterflies and ladybugs. • Block ants with cinnamon. Sprinkle wherever ants are located. Ants will not cross the cinnamon trail, and it makes a room smell good. • Place a wren house at least 50 feet away from vegetables or fruit trees. Wrens enjoy eating the fruits of your labor and are better situated near conifers. • Tie dryer sheets around selected hydrangea branches to repel deer.

Free Social Security seminars Firm buys building offered for baby boomers PIQUA — A free, onehour educational seminar titled “Smart Social Security Planning� will be held May 15 and 17 at Edison Community College. The seminar is defor “baby signed boomers,� people who have recently retired or who are approaching retirement age, according to John Eikenberry of Eikenberry Retirement Planning, one of the presenters. “We are holding this free educational seminar because so many retirees and those nearing retirement age do not understand how their Social Security benefits really work,� Eikenberry said. “And, most baby boomers do not understand the options available to them.� Eikenberry and Nick Boeckman will be presenting the seminars. Both are trained in the most up-to-date Social Security planning techniques and tools and are licensed members of

Eikenberry Boeckman Planmybenefit.com, an program educational dedicated to providing its members with the latest Social Security planning tools. Eikenberry said the majority of financial advisers do not understand how Social Security works or how retirementage men and women need to plan to be able to best utilizea their Social Security benefits. “Deciding when to start taking Social Security benefits can have a tremendous impact on the amount of benefits an individual receives during his/her lifetime,� he said. “One of the easiest ways to understand your retirement is to imagine it as a carton of eggs —

your nest eggs, so to speak. Deciding how to arrange your nest eggs, and how to crack those nest eggs in the most beneficial order, is what we are trying to teach baby boomers.â€? As an example, Eikenberry said individuals could incur a penalty of as much as 30 percent of their benefits if they start taking them at age 62. “That’s one of the benefits of this seminar,â€? he said. “We’re going to educate folks about their options and how those options can affect them positively and negatively.â€? Eikenberry said other information that will be presented at the seminar includes: • What the Social Security office doesn’t tell you. • When it makes sense to delay benefits and when it does not. • Why checking your earnings record for accuracy is important. • How to coordinate your benefits with those

of your spouse for maximum potential. • Reducing or eliminating taxes on your Social Security retirement benefits. • Ways to integrate your Social Security benefits with your overall retirement plan. He said the seminar will also cover Social Security basics and will also reveal little-known strategies for maximizing Social Security benefits. “If you are recently retired or approaching retirement age,â€? he said, “attending this seminar will be time well spent.â€? He stressed that the seminar is free and nothing will be sold. The seminars will be held in the North Hall Conference Center at Edison Community College in Room 057. Because there is limited seating, Eikenberry suggests people interested in attending or who would like additional information to call toll-free (866) 945-3220 to reserve a seat.

Chamber presents safety awards awards, given companies that decrease their incident rate by at least 25 percent from the previous year. Receiving multiple awards were: • Agrana Fruit USA, Inc., Group, 100 Percent, Achievement and Special awards. • Baumfolder Corporation, Group, 100 percent and Achievement awards. • Beem Construction, Group and 100 percent. • Clean All Services, Group and Achievement awards. • Emerson Climate Technologies, Group, 100 Percent, Achievement and Special awards. • Energizer Personal Care, Group, 100 Percent and Special. • Fairlawn School District, 100 Percent and Achievement. • Hydro Aluminum North America, Group, 100 Percent, Achievement

Moms are celebrated around the world

The perpetuation of this tradition in North America goes back to an American, Anna Jarvis, who lost her mother on the second Sunday of May, 1906. She convinced the authorities in her small Virginian town to mark Mother’s Day with a religious ceremony the following year. The idea was so popular that the entire state of Virginia began an official celebration for mothers in 1907. A few years later, in 1914, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson officially designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.

Strangely enough, Mother’s Day is celebrated on a wide range of dates around the world. It’s celebrated as early as February in Norway and as late as December in Panama and Indonesia. Between these two extremes, hardly a month goes by without some country honouring their mothers with a special day. One thing is certain though, no matter the place or the date, mothers deserve to be celebrated!

Since then, many countries including Canada, Brazil, Italy, Japan, and Belgium have followed

Mother’s Day is celebrated on different dates around the world.

MOTHER’S DAY MAY 13, 2012

Why not make your cherished mother’s greatest wish come true for Mother’s Day? If you and your sibling haven’t been on speaking terms for months, if you’re annoyed with a family member over a trifle, why not bury the hatchet, turn the page, and try to get along for your mother’s sake. A family reconciliation might very well be the most wonderful gift she could receive. Perhaps you don’t demonstrate the love you feel for your mother on a regular

basis. Mother’s Day is the ideal moment to express this love, with heartfelt wishes, gifts, or gestures that will go straight to her heart. If you have a limited budget, offer her some quality time, spent together doing an activity she particularly loves. Or help her out with some chores she finds difficult. At the very least, a pretty card in which you express your wholehearted love for her will surely bring her joy. Another great idea is to develop the habit of expressing your gratitude to your mother and spoiling her every chance you get. It will allow you to build a closer relationship with her, something that might feel great for both of you. Why wait for Mother’s Day to show your affection to the one who gave you life and to tell her how much you love her?

If you love your mother but forget to tell her on a regular basis, now is the perfect time to tell her how you feel.

Here are some personality-based gift ideas that are sure to please your mother no matter what her style, interests, or age.

by dip in a thermal spa is just the thing. A box of different herbal teas or coffees would also be well received, as would bath products or a pair of ultracomfortable slippers.

FOODIE MOMS Why not an apron embroidered with her first name, a gourmet box of chocolates, or a fancy high-quality kitchen gadget? If your budget is more ample, she would surely love a gastronomic weekend away, with meals featuring local products and a couple of nights in a cozy inn.

Let her know how grateful you are Mothers give so much of themselves to their children, from the time they’re babies, through childhood and beyond the trials of adolescence. That’s half a lifetime spent caring for their children! Honoured since antiquity, motherhood represents the source of life and nurturing.

Personalized gifts for mothers

TENDER-HEARTED MOMS Opt for a heart-shaped locket, a jewellery box engraved with a loving message, or a digital photograph frame filled with family photos. Or how about a personalized novel in which she plays the heroine and recounts her experiences as a young woman or as a mother.

ACTIVE MOMS If she loves being active but is hesitant to treat herself, offer her some sports equipment that she wouldn’t splurge for herself. Or make a gift of a short- or long-term membership at the nearest gym or a few sessions with a personal trainer.

Short on gift ideas for Mother’s Day? Let your mother’s personality inspire you!

CURIOUS MOMS How about a subscription to a newspaper or magazine, a tablet computer, or books about different travel destinations? You could also offer a daytrip to a museum or art gallery in a neighbouring town or city.

Sidney Marching Band travels to Disney BY CLAIRE BONNORONT

The SHS Marching Band left for Disney World Wednesday April 18th to march in a parade at Epcot. The trip to Disney was 20 hours there and back by bus. While at Disney, the band had the opportunity to not only visit the parks and march in a parade, but also take part in a work shop with a professional Disney musician. This trip is nothing less than an experience of a life time. Thursday, the first day in Florida, the band visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom. From 11am-7pm they had the chance to explore the park and see all the big attractions. After a decent night’s sleep in a comfortable bed, they woke up the next morning to begin their eventful day in a Disney music workshop. The workshop was directed by a Disney performer named Chad. Chad played in all the parks and even on some of the Disney movies, while also being a local college professor. He taught the band many valuable tools to better themselves and their band as a whole. They played songs from many different Disney movies including: “Yoho” from Pirates of the Caribbean, “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid, “Trashin’ the Camp” from Tarzan; accompanied by Chad, and their feature song “A Whole New World” from Aladdin. The band accompanied the motion picture Aladdin with the song “A Whole New World”. When it was all recorded and put together they had the chance to watch the film and listen to all the songs they had played. The part of Disney that puts on the workshops was gave the band a copy of the dvd, commemorative draw string bags, and even inducted them into an organization by Disney called Ears for the Arts. They also presented the Director Mr. Chris Adams with a trophy signifying their experience and accomplishments at Disney World. When the workshop was over the band spent the rest of the day at Magic Kingdom from noon until 10pm. They even got the chance to see the night parade and the laser light and fireworks show before leaving that night. Early Saturday morning the big day had finally arrived. The band had to be in block by 10 am, the parade started at 10:30 am. They started out at the U.K in Epcot and circled around to end in Canada. When the Parade was over their final day at Disney World was spent at Epcot taking in the last bits of Disney magic that they could before leaving that night. The bus arrived back at the high school at 2:30 pm Sunday afternoon. As the members unloaded the bus and greeted their parents, a sense of sadness was felt by some. The band became a true family on the trip sharing laughs, memories, and an experience that they will never forget.

What was your favorite part of the Disney trip? Jaclyn Covington

Powerful Witness

BY: COLLEEN KINNINGER If you have ever driven by Lehman during the month of May, you have most likely seen the display of 3,600 white crosses on the front lawn. These crosses are not a mere decoration, but they represent the number of babies who are aborted in the United States every single day. Back in 2009, the Pro-Lifeguards decided that they wanted to show people driving by the school the seriousness of abortion. After a few months of collecting supplies, painting, and building the crosses, the crosses were ready to be set up by the road. The crosses serve as a public witness to all those who travel by Lehman. They serve as a visual reminder of the horrors of abortion that take place every single day. It is one thing to think of the number of lives lost every day, but to see the symbolic graveyard brings the figure home. Pro-Lifeguards Vice-President Emily Pax commented about the crosses, “They are a powerful witness. They really speak to me at how many lives are lost by abortion every day and every year.” Every year since 2009, the Pro-Lifeguards have set up the crosses during the month of May. This year, the crosses will be set up May 5. As you drive by Lehman during May, remember that these crosses are not just a decoration, but a witness to the evilness of abortion.

“The fireworks in the Magic Kingdom.”

“Sharing the Limelight”

BY: JULIA HARRELSON The Lehman Music Department is offering an exciting opportunity this year for students in grades 5 through 8. On May 8, the students who registered will get to be “in the Limelight.” They will spend the entire day learning dances and songs, playing games, and meeting members of the Lehman Show Choir (the Limelighters), and the Cavalier and Concert Choirs. That evening, they will perform with the Lehman choir students during a 7:00 p.m. concert. The day will start off at 3:30 with students checking in and playing games. At 3:45, the dance clinic will start. This will be led by Limelighter choreographers Chad Hewitt (LHS ’06) and Libby Galbreath (LHS ’08). They will learn the lyrics and dances to two songs: “I’m a Believer” and “Life is a Highway.” From 5:45 to about 6:30, the students will have time to eat pizza for dinner, hang out and meet new friends. Then at 7:00, the performance will begin. The Limelighters will start the show singing “Like a Prayer.” Their other selections include “Popular,” “Guys Sing Off,” “Firework,” and “Journey Medley.” The Cavalier and Concert Choirs will sing “Come Sail Away” and “Fireflies.” All the Lehman choirs will join together to sing “Life is a Highway” and “I’m a Believer” with the grade school students. Admission to the concert is free, so come and watch future Cavaliers as they are “Put into the Limelight!”

Not so new faces BY: MADILYN BROWN Over this school year, the newest faculty members have made their places in the Lehman community. These four staff members teach a range of classes. We have enjoyed their additions to Lehman, but how did they like their year? Mrs. Baker, who teaches five classes a day with four different subjects (Environmental Science, Chemistry, AP Biology, and Integrated Science) said she is “blessed to have this job.” Although she has a very busy day, she has enjoyed helping the students. “College doesn’t prepare you for all the work a teacher does,” she said. “This year was different than previous teaching,” said the creative art teacher, Mrs. Grant. “The students are very easy to work with.” That probably comes in handy for a teacher who teaches six different subjects during the day (Fundamentals, Art History 1 and 2, Ceramics, Studio Art, and Drawing and Painting). She is also the Art Department Chair. “Not one part of this year was boring.” Surely, her students feel the same way. Another first year faculty member at Lehman is Mr. Normile. You may know him from sitting in one of his many social studies classes. He teaches Geography, U.S. History, and U.S Government, but his favorite subject to teach has been Government. “Lehman has exceeded my expectations,” he said. Mrs. Jenkinson who teaches three music classes and also helps out with the band. “I was wary about getting this job, but since I am a Lehman alumna, I thought I had a good chance,” she said. She has really enjoyed being in the choir program again, since she was very involved in it when she attended Lehman. “I have loved watching the kids pick out different music, and the kids have definitely progressed in their abilities.” Although some consider these faculty members to still be “new,” they have already had a long busy year. They have had a very good impact on the Lehman students and community.

The curious case of Pierce Bennett BY: MEGHAN BENNETT It is not everyday that you would find a young man wearing boots and a belt buckle walking the halls of Lehman, but junior Pierce Bennett doesn’t seem to mind the odds. The fact that he is carrying a tennis magazine under his school books just adds to his overall uniqueness. It is also very common to find Pierce popping into classrooms, even if the only reason is to say to Sister Ginny, “How’s your day going, Sister?” The most important thing about Pierce is that his smile, along with his never ending jokes and fun-loving attitude, can light up an entire classroom of students. Growing up on a farm has given Pierce many experiences throughout his life. He and his family raise market lambs every year through the 4-H program. He has also won awards at the Ohio State Fair for his work in natural resources. The outdoors is where you will most likely find him on a daily basis. Let’s just say those boots and that belt buckle definitely define his overall character. Because of his interest in the outdoors, it is only fitting that Pierce plays a sport that puts him outside all the time. That’s right, this cowboy has a passion for tennis. Pierce has been a district qualifier two years in a row and is currently playing first singles for the Lehman Cavs this spring. Pierce is involved in several clubs and activities. He has participated on the state-qualifying Science Olympiad team, as well as being a four year member of the Envirothon team. Pierce also works as a presenter for the Ohio Energy Project and is a Lehman Ambassador. Pierce’s classmates are quick to agree that Pierce is definitely a keeper. Senior Kandis Sargeant commented, “Pierce is one of kind. He’s the little brother I’ve always wanted. He is quick to make a joke about you, but in the end he has always got your back.” Senior Daniel Sehlhorst also is quick to chime in, “Pierce is a great friend and loyal teammate. You can always count on him - accent, belt buckle, boots, and all - to be there for you or give you a good laugh.” Writing this article is extra special for me because I have the honor of calling Pierce my brother. Let me just say I couldn’t ask for a better one! Thanks for being a great addition to Lehman and our family!

Commissioners open project bids Shelby County Commissioners opened bids Thursday for a culvert rehabilitation project on Miami ConRoad and the widening of servancy Hardin-Wapakoneta Road. Thirteen bids for the culvert contract ranged from a low of $180,062 to a high of $339,302. Only two bids, for $190.725 and $167,471, were received for the Hardin-Wapakoneta Road project. Commissioners forwarded all bids to County Engineer Bob Geuy for his recommendation and took the matter under advisement until their May 10 meeting. County bills totaling $671,666.01 were approved for payment. Thursday afternoon, commissioners participated with other county departments in a Shared Services meeting at the Board of Developmental Disabilities. The ongoing meetings consider the sharing of time and resources by county departments to realize county budget savings. The commissioners on Tuesday approved an amendment to an earlier resolution authorizing the Sidney-Shelby County Health Department to use financial transaction devices (credit cards). The amendment increases the maximum amount authorized by the resolution. The board also approved April then-and-now (bills paid) certificates for various department payouts. Commissioners also transferred $10,000 from Common Pleas Court’s unanticipated fund to its attorney fees fund.

April showers absent The month of April in Shelby County was hardpressed to justify its traditional reputation for showers. Only 1.9 inches of precipitation was recorded during the month. Measurable rainfall occurred only five of its 30 days — 0.52 inch on April 14 and 0.47 April 25. Temperatures during the month ranged from a high of 81 on April 30 to

low readings of 28 degrees on both April 6 and 7. It was below freezing five days, but it was 60 degrees or higher 22 of April’s 30 days. Precipitation for the first four months of 2012 totals 8.87 inches. Weather information is provided by the Sidney Wastewater Treatment Plant, official weather recording station for Shelby County.

Council to review applications for vacant seat Monday night’s Sidney City Council work session will be preceded at 5:15 p.m. by a special meeting to be held in executive session. In the session, called to discuss the appointment of a public official, council members will be reviewing the April 30 presentations of and by candidates

for council’s vacant atlarge seat. Both sessions will be held in council chambers at the municipal building. There will be no public comment. During council’s May work session, which follows at 6:30 p.m., Brian Schultz, wastewater treatment plant superin-

tendent, will discuss sanitary sewer inflow and infiltration issues from private property and Law Director Jeffrey Amick

will lead a discussion of backup staffing in the city. Council will also review agenda items for its May 14 and May 29 meet-

ings, and items for the May 21 meetings of the Zoning Board of Appeals and Planning Commission.

HOROSCOPE

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Sunday, May 6, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Congratulations; you have survived the Full Moon. Avoid important decisions about inheritances, shared property, taxes and insurance matters. (Just for today.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Well, you survived the biggest Full Moon of the year for you, and perhaps it wasn’t easy. Just relax today. This is a poor day to shop or make important decisions. Chill out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you have a desire to get better organized, don’t be hard on yourself today. Take it easy. Avoid shopping, except for food. Stay mellow. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The dust is starting to settle after yesterday’s intense Full Moon. Just go into survival mode today. Don’t attempt anything important. Easy does it. LEO BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, May 7, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Surprise opportunities to travel or explore publishing, the media, medicine and the law might drop in your lap today. Grab whatever it is, because your window of opportunity is brief. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Gifts, goodies and favors from others will come your way today. Don’t worry about attached strings. Just say, “Thank you.” GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Relations with partners and close friends will hold a few surprises today. Be ready for this. Also, you could meet a real character today. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your daily routine at work will be interrupted today because of high-tech equipment. Computer crashes, power outages or the introduction of new equipment might leave you stalled in the water. LEO

(July 23 to Aug. 22) This recent Full Moon was exhausting. Therefore, give yourself a play day. Just take it easy, and avoid important discussions with anyone. Caution about shopping, except for food. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Although you’re very keen to get things done now, try to wait a bit. Today is a poor day for important decisions and for spending money (except for food). Keep treading water. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) The past few days generated some tension with the Full Moon, especially about money and possessions. Now it’s time to recuperate and replenish yourself. Just rest. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You’ll feel better now that this Full Moon has peaked in your sign. Relations with partners and close friends might still be iffy. Don’t try to patch things up, not yet. Keep a low profile today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Work quietly on your own today if you want to continue getting better organized. Don’t make demands on others. And don’t make

important decisions or major purchases. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Differences with others might have occurred lately. It’s too soon to rectify any wrongs. People need to lick their wounds today. Just rest. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Do whatever you can to rebuild good relationships within the family, but don’t make any promises to anyone. Go gently, and be considerate. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The energy out there is still mildly accident-prone for you, so be careful. Today you will misplace things, forget things or not know what’s happening. It’s no big deal. Relax. YOU BORN TODAY You are an idealist and a humanitarian, if you have the opportunity. You have solid values, and you care for the welfare of others as well as your own. You’re very aware that what you do (or not) contributes to your own sense of self-respect. In the year ahead, you’ll have an opportunity to study or learn something important. Be open to this. Birthdate of: George Clooney, actor; Rudolph Valentino, actor; Raquel Zimmermann, supermodel.

(July 23 to Aug. 22) Surprise flirtations will make your day! This could be a lucky day for many of you. However, it’s a mildly accident-prone day for your children, so be alert. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your home routine will change today, perhaps due to small appliances breaking down or minor breakages. Someone unexpected might knock on your door. (Is the posse after you?) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign, so slow down and take it easy. Pay attention to whatever you’re doing. Be aware. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Make friends with your bank account today. Something unpredictable with cash flow or possessions might take place. Try to keep track of whatever you have and own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might feel more emotional than usual today because the Moon is in your sign. Fun, social surprises might occur; however, parents should keep an eye on their kids. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

In a way, this is a restless day for you. It’s as if you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. (Which, you know, will not fit you and be ugly.) Do something that is pleasurable and fun! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A friend could surprise you today, or alternatively, you might meet someone who is a real character. Meanwhile, group discussions might cause you to change your goals. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You suddenly will be thrust (briefly) in the limelight today. Bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs will notice you. Something unexpected or surprising will accompany this event. Be prepared. YOU BORN TODAY Even if you’re being flip, you have a dignity that others respect. Perhaps it’s because people sense you’re devoted to your values, and because of this, you never give up. You’re comedic but you also have grace and panache. You’re extremely hardworking. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big. Birthdate of: Amy Heckerling, film director; Russell Crowe, actor; Jackie Chan, martial-arts actor.

Historic opera house being restored

LOGANTECH

NEW BREMEN — Restoration work on the fire-damaged 1895 Boesel Opera House has begun in the village. H.A. Dorsten Inc., of Minster, began work last month on the historic building, after structural engineers approved the project. The building, heavily damaged by a Feb. 25 fire, is owned by Crown Equipment Corp., of New Bremen. A restaurant and barber shop were displaced by the blaze. The barber has relocated in the village, but the owner of the Fireside Pub restaurant has not announced future plans. Cleanup of the building’s shell is under way,

but Crown officials say plans for its interior have not been finalized. A Dorsten engineering spokesperson said the work will be done in phases following the ongoing cleanup. Workers then plan to build and install new wood trusses, sheeting and roofing to prevent further weather damage. Part of the cleanup involved demolition of a small brick building west of the opera house, also owned by Crown, to provide more options as restoration progresses. The Ohio State Fire Marshal’s Office has determined the cause of the fire to be accidental with the exact cause listed as undetermined.

almost seems that some people have one grafted to their ear. The braintumor link to cellphones is something that periodically surfaces. About a year ago, the International Agency for Research in Cancer, a part of the World Health Organization, reviewed the evidence and suggested that the electromagnetic fields generated by cellphones might be a possible factor in producing brain tumors. I’m not sure what that means. It seems to me that with such widespread use of cellphones and with no great increase in brain tumors, the possibility is not a big threat.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When you comment on cholesterol treatments, please mention gemfibrozil. It’s cheap, effective and has not caused any side effects for me. — V.S. ANSWER: Gemfibrozil is the generic name for Lopid. It is useful for lowering triglycerides and cholesterol. Triglycerides are fats in the blood that work with cholesterol in clogging blood flow through arteries. This medicine increases good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol) and lowers bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol). Gemfibrozil can cause muscle pain. I’m glad it’s been such a success for you.

DEAR ABBY: I live in a different state from the one where I grew up. Twice a week I call my elderly parents to touch base. While I enjoy speaking with Dad, my mother turns these calls into a trial. Conversations with her are one-sided. She rarely asks me how I’m doing, and when I tell her things, she ignores or quickly glosses over my news and redirects the subject to herself. She rambles on about trivial events in her life, barely acknowledging me on the other end of the line. Some days I am patient and tolerate it. On others, my fuse is shorter and I ask her to focus more on conversing with me, which offends her, and she accuses me of

being rude. I am an interesting, successful man who is frustrated my mother can’t connect with me more meaningfully. I don’t see my parents often and would like to be part of their lives. Mom is not by nature a generous person, but the telephone seems to magnify her self-absorption and lack of curiosity.

It’s regrettable, but at her stage of life, you are not going to change her. She may be rambling because few people are willing to tolerate her self-centeredness. On the days you are feeling more patient, let her ramble on; on those that you don’t feel that way, keep the conversation upbeat but brief.

REPLAY 50 years ago May 5, 1962 Ivan Grilliot may have a big outdoor rifle season, if his perfect firing at the Valley City Club’s range is any indication. The Versailles Auto Parts specialist scored a 200 with 17 X’s from the 50-yard line and another 200 with 16 X’s, at 100 yards — all on prone firing.

25 years ago May 5, 1987 Lehman needed a win to set up a showdown with Versailles for the Southwestern Rivers Conference championship, and coach Steve Hunsucker was taking no chances, sending his ace lefthander Tom Froning to the mound. Froning, just a sophomore, and the area’s top pitcher with a 7-1 record, was more than up to the task as he fired BBs at Tipp City, recording a no-hitter.

Homers power Reds to win Cueto throws complete game in 6-1 win PITTSBURGH (AP) — Johnny Cueto remained unbeaten, giving up seven hits in his first complete game of the season as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 61 on Friday night. The right-hander struck out three without a walk to improve to 4-0 and lower his ERA to 1.32. Zack Cozart and Drew Stubbs homered on consecutive pitches in the seventh inning off Pittsburgh starter Kevin Correia (1-2) to give Cincinnati plenty of breathing room. Jay Bruce later added his eighth home run of the season off reliever Chris Resop. Nate McLouth, starting in center field in place of an ill Andrew McCutchen, had two hits for the Pirates but Pittsburgh failed in its bid to win consecutive games for the first time in three weeks.

Damon helps Indians win 6-3 Johnny Damon hit a tworun triple and Jeanmar Gomez pitched seven strong innings to lead the Cleveland Indians over the Texas Rangers 6-3 on Friday night. Gomez (2-1) gave up seven hits and three runs as Cleveland won for the fourth time in five games. Texas has lost five of seven, but still leads the AL West. Shin-Soo Choo and Jack Hannahan homered off Colby Lewis (3-1) as Cleveland took an early lead. Damon's drive off the wall in center was nearly caught by Josh Hamilton, who returned to the Rangers' lineup after missing three games because of a sore back. Chris Perez pitched the AP Photo/Gene J.

The win was crucial because Niemeyer it keeps the Wildcats just one game off the pace in the MAC standings at 6-2. Overall, they are now 195. “We still have that target on our backs,” said Minster coach Mike Wiss, in reference to the state championship won last season. “We see everybody’s No. 1.” Minster got two in the top of the third, but St. Henry came back with three in the bottom of the fourth. It stayed at 3-2 going to the sixth, when Drew Elson belted a solo home run to knot the game up, one of two hits on the day for him. It remained 3-3 through 10 innings, but Adam Niemeyer lit into a 1-2 pitch with one out in the top of the 11th and deposited it over the fence to give the Wildcats a 4-3 lead.

Hunsucker named Pitcher of the Week Anna graduate Wes Hunsucker, a sophomore at St. Francis in Fort Wayne, has been named the Mid-Central College Conference Pitcher of the Week for the week that ended last Saturday. Hunsucker went the distance Tuesday for a 43 win over Mt. Vernon Nazarene, then went the first six innings in a 6-1 regular season-ending win at Marion. The win over Marian was Hunsucker’s seventh complete game this season, and he posted a 2.08 earned run average for the week, walked two and struck out seven in helping St. Francis to a school-record 33 wins and a second-place finish in the conference. Hunsucker made a remarkable turnaround from the start of the season. He was 0-3 at one points, but won his last nine decisions to set a school record for consecutive wins and become the first St. Francis pitcher since 1994 to win nine games in a single season. In addition, also this week, Hunsucker was named All Mid-Central Conference. He had a 1.89 ERA in 57 innings in MCC play. “He’s been a workhorse who doesn’t get rattled in tight situations,” said coach Greg Roberts. “He’s improved

his mental approach this season and has better command of his pitches. He’s done a good job of working the plate.” Hunsucker pitched 10 innings on Thursday in St. Francis’ 7-6, 11-inning loss to Huntington in conference tournament play, ending the season at 33-24. Derek Coverstone, Fort Loramie Three players from St. Francis University were named All Mid-Central Conference in baseball this week, and two of them are from Shelby County as Coverstone joins Hunsucker on the squad. Coverstone actually earned two MCC honors, being named first-team all-conference as well as to the MCC Gold Glove team at catcher. He has caught 114 consecutive games in two seasons at St. Francis, led the MCC in RBIs with 49 and batted .299 this season. He went out in style on Thursday, too, with an outstanding game in the

conference tournament against Huntington, a game St. Francis lost in 11 innings to finish the season. Coverstone went 4for-6 in the game, driving in three runs. One of his hits was a home run, his eighth of the season. He has led St. Francis in homers two years in a row now. Hillary Monnin, Russia Wittenberg University held its seventh annual Tiger Awards, recognizing excellence in athletic and academic performance, and Monnin was named the recipient of the Tiger Spirit Award. Only one male and one female athlete receive the awards, which go to the studentathletes who best support and encourage fellow student-athletes. Monnin is a senior volleyball player. Kim Replogle, Houston Replogle was also recognized at Wittenberg’s Tiger Awards. A forward on the women’s basket-

ball team, Replogle received an Academic Athlete Award. Jon Lowe, Sidney Lowe plays for Sinclair Community College in Dayton, and helped the team clinch its fourth straight conference championship with a 21-3 record. Lowe, who was 3-for-10 in games this week, and finished league play with the team’s second-best batting average of .380. In conference play, he had five doubles, a triple, a home run and scored 15 times. He also had an on-base percentage of .475. Sinclair competes in the regional tournament next week in Michigan. Danielle Monnier, Houston Monnier was a real tough-luck loser for Wilmington College Sunday in the final outing of the season. She pitched brilliantly, allowing just two hits while striking out nine. But she lost 1-0 to Mt. Union. A sophomore, she finished the season as Wilmington’s No. 1 pitcher, working 126 innings and finishing with a 3.33 ERA. She had 111 strikeouts. Kenleigh Ludlow, Fort Loramie Ludlow had a big role in Cedarville winning the Ohio Independent championship and the

NCCAA (National Christian Collegiate Athletic Midwest Association) Region championship. In the Midwest Region, Ludlow’s single up the middle in the eighth inning drove in the winning run in a 3-2 victory over Spring Arbor. She then reached twice on errors, scored two runs and had a stolen base in a win over Indiana Wesleyan. Then against Malone in the Ohio Independent championship, she was 1-for-3, scored a run and drove in a run. Cedarville advances to the national tournament in West Virginia beginning on May 10. Nate Fridley, Lehman Fridley shot a 230 for Ohio Wesleyan, helping the team to a runner-up finish in the North Coast Athletic Conference tournament. Fridley finished tied for ninth after rounds of 80, 74 and 76. Andrew Meyer, Minster Meyer competed for Eastern Michigan in the Gina Relays at Hillsdale in Michigan last week and took fifth out of 18 in the shot put with a distance of 53 feet, 1 inch. The previous week, he competed at Cal State and was seventh out of 19 in the discus. Joe Engle, Sidney Engle had a good week for Union College

in Kentucky, starting off with a 1-for-3 game with a two-run homer against Milligan, Tenn. He was 1-for-4 with a double against Montreat, and 1-for-4 with two RBIs against Bryan. Mitchell Bensman, Russia Bensman, playing for Gallaudet in Illinois, was 2-for-4 and drove in two runs this week in a game against Penn StateBerks. He was 1-for-4 in the next game of the series. Kathy Dirksen, Marion Local Dirksen competes in track at Hillsdale College in Michigan, and was eighth in the shot put with a distance of 41-10.5 in the Gina Relays, hosted by the school. She was also 11th in the hammer throw at 149-11 and 15th in the discus at 120-8. Jordan Goffena, Sidney Goffena took third in the long jump at 22 feet, 9.25 inches at the Redhawk Invitational, hosted by Miami. Goffena is a member of the Miami squad. Katie Borchers, Russia Borchers ran on the ninth-place 3200 relay team for Ohio State in the huge Penn Relays in Philadelphia last weekend. She and her teammates finished in 8:58.85.

Yankees lose Rivera NEW YORK (AP) — For 15 years, Mariano Rivera has decided when the game ends. Even with a freakish injury that has likely ended his season, he is promising to close out his remarkable career on his own terms and vows to return no later than next spring. Rivera confounded batters with a cut fastball that changed direction as it neared home plate, shattered bats by the hundreds and sent hitters back to the dugout muttering. In his time in New York, the Yankees added five World Series championships to their record total. He’s not ready to leave just yet. In a sport filled with debate, there is little argument that Rivera is the standard that all future relief pitchers will measure themselves against. “I wouldn’t compare him with any starter, but I think by acclimation he’s the greatest closer/relief pitcher in baseball history,” broadcaster Bob Costas said Friday. While shagging flies in batting practice before the game Thursday evening in Kansas City, the 42-year-old pitcher caught his foot on the edge of the warning track and his right knee buckled. He was lifted onto a cart and driven off the field that he so dominated. Likely sidelined for the rest of a season by a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus damage, Rivera needed less than 24 hours to make his decision. He had hinted at the start of spring training this was going to be his final year, but on Friday he made clear his intent to return 2013. “I’m coming back,” he said. “Write it down in big letters.”

FANS STRETCH to get a looks after Tiger Woods, left, hit from the rough on the fifth hole during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., Friday.

Tiger misses cut CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A lost ball didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost Tiger Woods at the Wells Fargo Championship. A lost game did. Coming off his worst performance as a pro at the Masters, Woods didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a birdie on any of the par 5s on another day of low scoring and wound up with a 1-over 73 to miss the cut for only the eighth time in his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of my favorite tour stops, and unfortunately, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just not going to be around for the last two days,â&#x20AC;? Woods said Friday. With swirling wind in the afternoon, Quail Hollow became tougher and there was an outside chance Woods could finish among the top 70. But he knew the score long before the second round ended. He was at evenpar 144, and that was not going to be good enough. Seventy-four players

made the cut at 1-under 143, the first time in 10 years of this tournament that the cut was under par. It was the first Woods missed the cut twice at the same event. Woods failed to qualify for the weekend at Quail Hollow in 2010 when he had just returned from the scandal in his personal life and his game was in disarray. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look much better on a course where he won in 2007. Woods kept throwing away shots with a hooked iron off the tee at the 12th, a three-putt on the 13th, a weak chip on the 18th. Woods, as he did at the Masters, attributed it to his old swing under Hank Haney. In an answer that was difficult to follow, he said he hits the ball better when he feels uncomfortable over the ball. Part of that is because he is still learning a new

swing under Sean Foley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just that I get out there and I want to get comfortable, and I follow my old stuff,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I hit it awful. All the shots I got uncomfortable on, I just said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to get really uncomfortable and make it feel as bad as it possibly could,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I striped it. I know what I need to do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just I need more reps doing it.â&#x20AC;? His worst shot of the day led to something even stranger than Woods leaving a tournament on Friday. He never found his ball and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t penalized. Going for the green on the par-5 fifth, Woods hooked his approach some 30 yards left of the green and over the gallery. There was a mad scramble by the gallery to get to the ball, but when Woods arrived, the ball couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be found.

Borchers receives ‘A+’ on his 35 years in education BY LORI OSTERLOH HAGAMAN

KATRINA SOWERS, 11, (front) and Maddi Fortman, 12, compete in the team advanced dance twirl during the U. S. Twirling Association Ohio State Championships. They were performing the routine, “Rumor Has It.” Katrina is the daughter of Brian and Laura Sowers, of Piqua. Maddi is the daughter of Jim and Karen Fortman, of Fort Loramie.

and choirs.” There have been many changes in the 35 years Borchers has been in education. Among them he cited the increased expectations placed on students and schools. Ninth and 12th grade proficiency tests led to the Ohio Graduation Tests and OAA. He said, “Soon another new generation of mandated tests will be required of our students to determine if they are college- and career-ready.” He also pointed out the push for graduating high school seniors to have earned college credits by graduation. “Multiple options including Advanced Placement coursework, dual enrollment, post-secondary education options, flex credits and articulation agreements have all taken their place in high schools as means for students to gain a head start on their college careers.” The pace at which technological advancements have made an impact upon the implements used by teachers is another change Borchers pointed out. “Change is now occurring so rapidly and new information being created at such a tremendous pace, that students cannot be expected to learn everything about a given subject. As a result, one of our primary focuses in education has become the critical need to teach students how to locate, ana-

lyze, evaluate and draw conclusions from the vast multitudes of resources available at their fingertips.” retirement, Upon Borchers hopes to spend more time with his family, do some traveling and “enjoy the freedoms being retired brings.” However, he leaves some words of wisdom to those just embarking upon their careers in education. “I would say you are entering the education field at an exciting and crucial juncture. Since the way we have done business in the past is no longer meeting the needs of our students, change is the name of the game. This change provides untold opportunities for those willing to embrace the challenge of looking to the future and discerning what the needs of our students will be. Our curriculum and instructional practices must be redesigned to meet those needs in order for schools to remain viable.” One of the best things about being involved in education for all these years, according to Borchers, is crossing paths with former students. Hearing the stories of their journeys after high school and their families can be fulfilling. He said, “The satisfaction of knowing you played even a small role in helping them achieve their success is quite gratifying.”

NEW BREMEN — Thirty-five years ago Frank Borchers began his career in education. As a graduate of Versailles H i g h School, he Borchers studied education at Wright State University. This undergraduate work landed him a post with the Sidney City Schools to teach math and science at Bridgeview Middle School. It was here that Borchers also coached basketball and track. During his four years at Bridgeview, Borchers earned his master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Dayton. Upon completion of this program he transferred to Sidney High School to teach earth science. Borchers explained, “Fellow science teacher Jim Anthony and I taught all the earth science classes, a required course, in a manner that allowed us to have all the freshman at some point in the school year. The arrangement helped keep the class fresh for both the students and the teachers. It also provided me the opportunity to get to know every student in the school, which proved

valuable to me when I was hired as an assistant high school principal at Sidney High School.” Borchers held this position for five years. It was during this assignment that he was part of a weekly broadcast on WMVR radio. “The five minute segment allowed the district to highlight some facet of the school system each Saturday morning. While it was sometimes challenging to come up with new items every week, it did require me to gain more of a district-wide perspective rather than focusing solely on happenings at Sidney High School.” In 1990 Borchers was hired by the New Bremen School district as the high school principal, a post he has held for the past 22 years. Among the many memorable moments Borchers has of his time with New Bremen High School is the school being recognized as a National No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon School Award Recipient in 2005 and having achieved an excellent rating on its State Report Card for 12 consecutive years. Also he said, “ Traveling with our students has also been memorable as well. More than a dozen times I traveled to Washington, D.C., with our senior class and have had the opportunity to make a number of trips to Virginia Beach and Disney World with our band

CCU Registered Nurses

Full-Time (7pm – 7am) Experienced CCU nurses needed to provide professional nursing care to patients utilizing the nursing process, following established policies and procedures and correlated with and in support of the medical plan of care. Nursing degree from an accredited school of professional nursing and at least one year of ICU or CCU experience preferred.

Nursing: The Health of a Nation They are the front-line care givers in hospital emergency rooms, medical clinics, learning institutions, and homes for the elderly. In many of Canada’s remote northern communities, often the only health care practitioner who lives on-site and treats people is a registered nurse or nurse practitioner. These women and men are all-in-one: they deal with emergencies, take care of vaccination pro-

grams, educate the public about health and reproductive issues, and of course they often serve as counsellor-friends to community members. This year, let’s all find a way to recognize the nurses who work hard to make our healthcare system accessible and efficient.

The men and women who practice nursing are the front-line healthcare providers in every community.

This year’s theme for National Nursing Week is a continuation of the campaign “Nursing: The Health of a Nation”. Without nurses, we would suffer through longer waits at our publicly funded health institutions, our elderly and bed-ridden would be forced to endure the agony of clinic waiting rooms, and our children and teens would know a lot less about how to keep in good health. Sponsored by the Canadian Nurses Association, National Nursing Week is a celebration of those who work in public health clinics, hospitals and clinics, and private and home-care organizations. CNA president Judith Shamian says it is a time to “acknowledge and celebrate nursing — a profession in which going above and beyond is a daily occurrence.” The CAN represents just over 145,000 registered nurses who work on the front lines and behind the scenes. Not only do they assist physicians in administering direct care, they work to educate community members about hygiene, safe sex practices, disease control, and disease prevention.

Must have a current Ohio nursing license, basic life support and advanced cardiac life support certifications. We offer competitive wages and an excellent benefit package including medical, dental, vision, long term disability, life insurance and a generous 401(k).
