TODAY’S THOUGHT “Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.” — Studs Terkel, American author and historian (born this date in 1912, died 2008) For more on today in history, turn to Page 2B.

Honoring our own Bornhorst is Senior of the Year BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN Ralph Bornhorst was surprised with Shelby County’s 2012 Outstanding Senior Citizen award during annual ceremonies at the Senior Center Tuesday. About 200 people attended the luncheon, served by members of the Botkins High School National Honor Society, at which Sidney Mayor Mike Barhorst proclaimed it Senior Citizen Day. “People 65 and older are 11 percent of Sidney’s population,” he told the crowd. During welcoming remarks, Senior Center Director David McKay said that 12,000 people in Ohio turn 60 every month. Last year’s Outstanding Senior Citizen, Marjorie Brackney, presented the

WORLD WAR II veteran Paul C. “Mike” Snavley, of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., and formerly of Shelby County, smiles as he gets his picture taken by Kriby Warren, of Piqua, Monday night during a pre-departure dinner at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post. Snavley is one of the veterans going to Washington, D.C. this weekend.

Final instructions were delivered to more than 30 World War II and Korean War veterans Monday night as they prepared for Friday morning’s departure to Washington, D.C. A pre-departure dinner was held at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post, Sidney. Veterans from Shelby County, along with those from Logan, Auglaize, Hardin, Mercer, Allen and Miami counties, will be departing from the Shelby County Fairgrounds as they make the trip to see the memorials built in their honor. There are also veterans coming from the Columbus area

and one from Florida to make the trek to Washington, D.C. “We want to honor everyone,” said Mike Bennett, chairman of Shelby County Vets to D.C., of the decision to take veterans from outside Shelby County to D.C. “We want to take everyone we can get.” Some groups, said Bennett, only take veterans from their own county on Honor Flights and other trips to D.C. “In September, we’ll be taking Vietnam veterans. We’ll still take WWII and Korean War veterans but that trip won’t be the same as the one you’ll be taking this weekend.” After receiving their travel See VETERANS/Page 11A

WAPAKONETA — Elmer Frederick Neumeier, 94, of Wa p a k o n e t a , was welcomed by the Lord with “Come in my good and faithful servant” on Monday, May 14, 2012, at 10:15 p.m. His wife and family were at his side as he departed. Elmer was born July 8, 1917, in Dayton, to Raymond Frederick and May (Caldwell) Neumeier who both died when he was young leaving him orphaned at age 5. He was raised by his grandparents, Andrew and Katherine (Fisher) Neumeier, of Wapakoneta. Armed with the responsibility to define his own path and built upon the family values passed down to him, Elmer entered the military during World War II. He served a three year term as seaman and machinist mate in the United States Navy, Seabees, 70th and 84th Battalion Units, serving tours in Algeria, Okinawa and Guam. He was awarded the Purple Heart. During his service term, he married Mary Louise Gehrlich on Jan. 10, 1944, a lifelong friend and the love of his life. A “man of all trades” he then pursued a life of service to his family, church and community. His work history included Westinghouse, Gehrlich Brothers, Koneta Rubber Co., and the Wapakoneta City School system from which he retired. He was a member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Wapakoneta F.O.E., Knights of Columbus (K of C) and Holy Name Society. He held the position of Grand Knight during his service at the K of C. He received a 25 year service award as a member of the scouting community serving as an educator and leader

for area youth. Elmer was a gifted card shark and accomplished fisherman, but he’d rather be known for his faith, patriotism and love of family. Elmer is survived by his Mary wife, Louise; children Janice Daum, James (Elena), Rebecca (Tom) Mosler, Barbara (Tom deceased) Bonita Maloney, (Michael Flood), Teresa (Michael) Elsass, Richard, Alice (Emerson dec.) Altstaetter, Nancy Gutman, (Edward) Joseph (Kathy), Mary Kay (Daniel) Drexler, Philip, Frederick (Robin), Angela (Robert) Butler, Michael, Samuel (Mary), Matthew, Mark (Christina), Amy (Stuart) Meyers; and 130 grandchildren (60 grandchildren, 64 greatgrandchildren, and six g r e a t - g r e a t grandchildren). He was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Victoria; and a great-great-grandson, Jayden. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 107 W. Pearl St., Wapakoneta, the Rev. Patrick Sloneker officiating. Burial is to follow in the St. Joseph Cemetery, Wapakoneta, where military rites will be conducted by the Wapakoneta VFW.

Statewide texting ban, teen rules sent to gov BY ANN SANNER Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — A statewide textingwhile-driving ban that could be tricky to enforce cleared the Ohio Legislature on Tuesday and was headed to the governor’s desk for his expected signature. The House cleared the measure on a 82-12 vote. The Senate passed it earlier this month. All drivers would be banned from texting, though young drivers could more easily be pulled over for it. That’s fine by 17year-old Salome Beneye of Columbus. “It should be more

strictly enforced toward teens,” Beneye said in a phone interview. “I’m not saying it shouldn’t toward adults as well, but I feel like teens have a better chance of getting in greater accidents than adults would.” Beneye, who’s had her license since November, said she doesn’t make phone calls or text while driving thanks in part to a series of pictures highlighting distracted driving accidents that were shown in her drivers’ education class. “It’s really scary,” she said. “No text or phone call is worth my life.” The bill would make texting with hand-held devices a secondary of-

fense for adults. That means drivers could be for typing ticketed emails or instant messages only if they were first pulled over for another offense, such as running a red light. The measure is tougher on teen drivers. Texting or using an electronic device while driving would be a primary offense for those under age 18. Minors could not use their cellphones, iPads, laptops or other electronic devices while driving unless there’s an emergency. Minors could be fined $150 for the first offense and have their license suspended for 60 days. Repeat offenders

could face a $300 fine and get their license taken away for a year. Teens could have hands-free GPS navigation devices, but they couldn’t use other electronic devices unless an emergency arises, or the vehicle was stopped and off the roadway. The measure would be among the broadest in the country in terms of teen distracted driving restrictions, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association. Texting while driving is already prohibited in 38 states, the organization has found. An additional five states prohibit text messaging by new drivers.

Senate wants welfare tied to clean drug tests COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A pilot program that would tie welfare benefits to clean drug tests is making its way through the Ohio Senate, amid criticism that a recent change to the state’s constitution makes the experiment illegal. The Senate Finance Committee set a Wednesday morning vote on a provision allowing three Ohio counties to volunteer to administer drug tests to prospective welfare recipients, as a test run for taking the plan statewide. It’s among dozens of Senate

changes to Gov. John Kasich’s midterm budget bill, on which a floor vote is expected later Wednesday. State Sen. Tim Schaffer, the author of the welfare provision, said its wording avoids legal roadblocks encountered in other states, more than two dozen of which have introduced drug testing provisions this year. That’s in part by adding an element to the program allowing other family members to take custody of the benefit payments of the

individual who tests positive. “We want to make sure we’re putting shirts on backs, food on the table, and shoes on the feet,” he said. “There’s no reason why the innocent members of a family should suffer because of what one drug user or abuser is doing in that family.” Janetta King president and CEO of Innovation Ohio, a liberal think tank, argued Tuesday that the drug-testing program violates a section added to the Ohio constitution by voters last year.

Accidents under investigation The Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office is investigating two accidents which happened on Patterson-Halpin Road. The most recent accident happened on the 2000 block of PattersonHalpin Road around 11 a.m. on Monday. A 19year old female reportedly lost control of her vehicle. Her vehicle went off the road and flipped several times. She was taken to Wilson Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. Lockington Fire and Houston Rescue responded to the accident. No further details have been released concerning the driver’s name or the cause of the accident. The other accident happened on Sunday around 4:19 p.m. Two CareFlight helicopters responded to the intersection of Houston and Patterson-Halpin roads after a car and pickup truck collided. According to Sheriff John Lenhart, the preliminary investigation showed the car was northbound on Patterson-Halpin Road and failed to yield to a truck traveling eastbound on Houston Road.

The driver of the car, Christy Hoffman, of Kenton, was transported to Miami Valley Hospital by CareFlight. She is reportedly in critical condition. She was pregnant at the time of the accident and gave birth at the hospital. The infant is fine. Hoffman’s son, Draden Patterson, was transported to Children’s Medical Center in Dayton by a second helicopter. The severity of his injuries are not known. A third person in the vehicle, Hoffman’s husband Scott Hoffman was not injured. Frederick Shellenburg, 42, of Houston, was driving the truck. Shellenburg and his sons, Ciaran, 10 and Aiden, 6, were all transported to Wilson Memorial Hospital. The extent of their injuries was not known at press time. Houston Rescue, Lockington Fire, Houston Fire, Sidney medics and CareFlight all responded to the accident. Both accidents remain under investigation by the Shelby County Sheriff ’s deputies.

New election law gone COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s Republican governor signed legislation Tuesday to get rid of a contentious new election law that Democrats and others have been trying to get voters in the presidential battleground state to overturn. The law would shrink early voting opportunities, among a host of other election changes. It’s been on hold from taking effect since September. That’s when Democrats, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and other opponents gathered more than 300,000 signatures from Ohioans to ask voters on fall ballots whether they wanted to repeal it. The state’s top elections official has said with the law’s repeal, there’s no need to place a question before voters. Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican, has said passage by the GOP-dominated state Legislature means Ohio’s election law is no longer in limbo.

Girl dies CLEVELAND (AP) — A 10-year-old girl who was critically injured in April in a restaurant shooting by her father that killed her sister and her mother has died, family members said. Kayla Allen was hospitalized for about a month after the April 12 shooting during a birthday dinner at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in suburban Cleveland, but she took a turn for the worse and was sent home Friday to receive hospice care. Hospice of the Western Reserve in Cleveland released a family statement Tuesday saying Kayla died peacefully at home.



Ex-guards had orders to kill BAGHDAD (AP) — Former bodyguards for Iraq’s fugitive vice president testified Tuesday that they were ordered to kill security officials and plant roadside bombs as a politically charged terror trial against the Sunni leader got under way. Vice President Tariq alHashemi, who was in Turkey but faced trial in absentia, has denied all charges against him. If convicted, he could face the death penalty. The case threatens to paralyze Iraq’s government by fueling simmering Sunni and Kurdish resentments against Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who critics claim is monopolizing power. Al-Hashemi is an ardent critic of al-Maliki, whose government issued a warrant for the vice president’s arrest the day after U.S. troops left Iraq last December.

No trust, no ad sales NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook’s reach is wide but not deep. Few users surveyed in an Associated Press-CNBC poll say they click on the site’s ads or buy the virtual goods that make money for it. More than 40 percent of American adults log in to the site — to share news, observations, personal photos and more — at least once a week. In all, some 900 million people around the world are users. But many of them don’t have a very high opinion of Facebook or trust it to keep their information private. If Facebook the company were a Facebook user, it would have a lot of virtual friends but not many real ones, the poll suggested.

Hunt goes on WASHINGTON (AP) — Look for a fundamental shift in how scientists hunt ways to ward off the devastation of Alzheimer’s disease — by testing possible therapies in people who don’t yet show many symptoms, before too much of the brain is destroyed. The most ambitious attempt: An international study announced Tuesday will track whether an experimental drug can stall the disease in people who appear healthy but are genetically destined to get a type of Alzheimer’s that runs in the family. If so, it would be exciting evidence that maybe regular Alzheimer’s is preventable too.


Lexus goes for swim LA PUENTE, Calif. (AP) — The Diaz family awoke to find a Lexus at the bottom of their swimming pool. The Southern California family tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune that drivers navigating the tricky intersection next to their house in La Puente have hit their cinderblock wall before, but early Sunday one of them smashed right through it in his silver sedan, then sank into the pool. A crane later fished out the 2006 Lexus. California Highway Patrol officer Steve Licon says the driver — 40-year-old Modesto Cabral — was able to escape from the car through the passenger side window and had only minor injuries.

Priest admits he’s a father VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Legion of Christ religious order, still reeling from revelations that its late founder was a pedophile, admitted Wednesday that it knew that its most famous priest had fathered a child years ago yet didn’t remove him from teaching morality to seminarians or speaking publicly about ethics. In a statement, the Legion said it was sorry it hadn’t acted “earlier and more firmly” to remove the Rev. Thomas Williams from his very public

ministry as a spokesman, author and high-profile television personality. It said it took responsibility for the lapse, but didn’t admit when Williams’ superiors knew of the existence of his child. Williams, an American moral theologian and former superior of the Legion’s Rome general office, admitted Tuesday he had had a relationship with a woman and had fathered a child “a number of years ago.” He didn’t identify the woman or say whether he is

supporting the child, though the Legion said the child is being cared for. Williams’ admission was issued after The Associated Press last week confronted the order with the allegation against Williams, which was lodged by a Spanish association of Legion victims. The association’s accusations, sent to the Legion and Vatican several weeks ago, also named other Legion priests accused of sexually abusing minors. The Legion has been beset

by scandal following revelations that its late founder, the Rev. Marciel Maciel, fathered three children with two women and sexually abused his seminarians. Maciel died in 2008, and in 2009 the Legion admitted to his crimes. The Maciel scandal has been particularly sensational given that the Mexican-born priest was held up by Pope John Paul II as a model for the faithful, with his priests admired for their orthodoxy and ability to bring in money and attract new seminarians.

Lightning sparks French presidency PARIS (AP) — Socialist Francois Hollande assumed France’s presidency Tuesday, inheriting a country fearful for its financial future and jetting off immediately to Berlin to tackle his most pressing problem: Europe’s debt crisis. A flash of lightning nearly derailed Hollande’s blitz diplomatic foray, striking his plane and sending him briefly back to a Paris area military airbase. Hollande quickly But switched Falcon jets, flew to Berlin, and took steps toward bridging differences with German Chancellor Angela Merkel over how to reinvigorate Europe’s economy and its global influence. Right before leaving for Berlin, Hollande named a moderate, Germanally, Jean-Marc friendly Ayrault, as his prime minister. During a day packed with pomp-filled inaugural traditions, Hollande promised to be less flashy than his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy and bring a more human touch to the Elysee Palace. But he won’t have much time to play Mr. Nice Guy as he faces a barrage of challenges, from creating jobs to getting thousands of

GERMAN CHANCELLOR Angela Merkel (left) talks to new French President Francois Hollande after a news conference at the chancellery in Berlin, Tuesday. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande say they have agreed to discuss ways to generate economic growth in Europe. Hollande said after his first meeting with Merkel on Tuesday that “everything must be put on the table by everyone” that could promote growth. French troops out of Afghanistan ahead of schedule. Europe’s financial troubles are Hollande’s No. 1 priority. He and Merkel have opposing views on whether spending or saving is the best approach. Hollande said Tuesday investment in growth is crucial

to reduce debt and cut deficits, saying he envisions “a balanced and respectful relationship” with Germany. Merkel, who has argued that indebted European countries need to clean up their budgets before launching new spending sprees, said that her differences with Hollande

have been overplayed. And asked whether she was afraid of Hollande’s campaign pledges, she replied: “I am seldom afraid.” The two stressed that they want to keep Greece in the 17nation eurozone that shares the euro currency, and looked ahead to a European Union summit in Brussels next week for further decisions. The lightning strike marked a startling beginning for Hollande, who promised to be a more “normal” president after five years under Sarkozy, ousted by voters after a single term for his handling of a stagnant economy. Hollande took off in a Falcon 7X aircraft for Berlin after rain-drenched inaugural events. The plane was hit by lightning just minutes afterward, according to Hollande aides. Warning lights turned red, they said, but Hollande wanted to continue on. Instead the pilot returned to the Villacoublay air base outside Paris as a precaution, Defense Ministry spokesman Gerard Gachet said. The president and his entourage were transferred to another aircraft, a Falcon 900, and left.

Two sides of the campaign Ads highlight cozy Romney pins ‘prairie super PAC relationship fire of debt’ on Obama NEW YORK (AP) — Looks like President Barack Obama’s allies got the hint. An independent group with deep ties to the president’s reelection campaign launched a television ad Tuesday hitting Mitt Romney’s business practices at Bain Capital, just 24 hours after Obama’s team debuted its own ad attacking the Republican presidential candidate’s work at the private equity firm. By law, campaigns and the outside groups are forbidden from working with each other. But at times like this, the lines of separation seem blurred if not crossed. “The idea that these groups are independent is a fiction in reality terms and, we believe, a fiction in legal terms,” said Fred Wertheimer of Democracy 21, a campaign finance reform advocacy group. The back-to-back Obama spots, to run in four of the same five general election swing states, are a sign of the new world of campaign finance, where so-called super political action committees have wide leeway to spend as much as they want to help or

hurt candidates. And the ads also cast new light on the cozy relationship between campaigns and these groups, raising questions about how independent they are from each other. The coziness isn’t limited to Democrats. A Romney-aligned super PAC is keeping him competitive on TV as he regroups for the general election. And the relationship between that group — Restore Our Future — and the presumptive GOP nominee was on vivid display during the Republican primaries, when the group spent $36 million on ads assailing the former Massachusetts governor’s rivals. Super PACs, born of a 2010 Supreme Court decision easing political spending rules, can raise and spend unlimited donations as long as they don’t coordinate directly with the campaigns they support. But the lines are often blurry: The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action is run by former Obama White House aides, while Restore Our Future is staffed by former Romney advisers.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday painted President Barack Obama as a reckless steward of the country’s economy and, as proof, pointed to “a financial crisis of debt and spending that threatens what it means to be an American.” The likely Republican nominee offered a far-reaching indictment of Obama’s tenure and portrayed himself as a beacon of fiscal responsibility with the public and private sector experience to prove it. “A prairie fire of debt is sweeping across Iowa and our nation, and every day we fail to act that fire gets closer to the homes and children we love,” Romney told supporters at a downtown Des Moines hotel. He emphasized an issue that’s a big concern of the middle-class voters from across the political spectrum he and Obama are wooing. “This is not solely a Democrat or a Republican problem,” Romney added, a clear pitch to independent voters who will decide the election. “The issue isn’t who deserves the most blame, it’s who is going

to do what it takes to put out the fire.” The White House promptly dismissed Romney’s critique. Press secretary Jay Carney blamed federal overspending primarily on Romney-backed tax cuts for the wealthy that were enacted during President George W. Bush’s administration and on the pricy wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Carney said Romney wants to repeat policies that led to high deficits and the recession and to repeal Obama policies “that reversed the cataclysmic decline on our economy and that now has us growing for 11 straight quarters.” The Romney campaign’s fresh focus on debt and spending came one day after Obama launched an effort to castigate his Republican rival’s business credentials as the presidential campaign entered a more critical phase six months before the election. Obama’s campaign and an allied group were unveiling advertisements in key battleground states that suggest Romney put profits over people during his tenure at Boston-based Bain Capital.

Mexican novelist, essayist Carlos Fuentes dies MEXICO CITY (AP) — Author Carlos Fuentes, who played a dominant role in Latin America’s novel-writing boom by delving into the failed ideals of the Mexican revolution, died Tuesday in a Mexico City hospital. He was 83. Fuentes died at the Angeles del Pedregal hospital where he was taken after his personal doctor, Arturo Ballesteros, found him in shock in his Mexico City home. Ballesteros told reporters outside the hospital that the writer had a sudden internal hemorrhage that caused him to lose consciousness. The loss was immediately mourned worldwide via Twitter and across Mexican airwaves by everyone from fellow

Mexican authors Elena Poniatowska and Jorge Volpi to reggaeton artist Rene Perez of the group Calle 13. “I deeply lament the death of our beloved and admired Carlos Fuentes, a universal Mexican writer,” said President Felipe Calderon on his Twitter account. The prolific Fuentes wrote his first novel, “Where the Air is Clear,” at age 29, laying the foundation for a boom in Spanish contemporary literature during the 1960s and 1970s. He published an essay on the change of power in France in the newspaper Reforma on Tuesday, the same day he died. His generation of writers, including Colombia’s Gabriel Garcia Marquez and

Peru’s Mario Vargas Llosa, drew global readership and attention to Latin American culture during a period when strongmen ruled much of the region. Fuentes was the driving force in bringing together the Latin writers who collectively became known as “The Boom”, said Raymond L. Williams, a professor of Latin American literature at the University of California, Riverside. “It took Fuentes’ vision to say if we unite forces and provide a common political and literary voice, we’ll have more impact,” Williams said. “His home in Pedregal (an upscale Mexico City neighborhood) was the intellectual center what brought a lot of writers together.”

MEMBERS OF the Sidney Recreation Board look at improvements to Custenborder Field during a meeting recently. Explaining the laser grading that was done is Parks Director Duane Gaier.

Rec board tours sites Members of the Sidney Recreation Board welcomed new member Ward Cartwright and toured several parks during their May meeting. Parks Director Duane Gaier said that the group also reviewed the recreation programming and food programming that is planned for the summer. “The locations have

expanded to Sherman Park,” he said. “We have very minimal funding, but other organizations and individuals are volunteering to run them. We’re not to the 25 of past years, but we have gone from zero to 10 in a couple years.” The programs are listed on the city’s website. Following reports and comments from those at-

tending, the group toured Custenborder Field to see laser grading that has been done to improve draining; Broookside Park to see the completion of the expansion of the park to Tawawa Park, including two miles of pedestrianand bicycle-only trails and four shelters; and McMillen Park to see parking area improvements.

City tax collections in line with budget projections BY TOM BARNETT Income tax collections are in line with budget projections and no additional budget reductions are warranted at this time, Ginger Adams, city finance director, told Sidney City Council during its first May meeting Monday night. During her financial status report, she cautioned previous budget cuts must still remain in place and a challenging Five-Year Plan process to balance service and infrastructure demands with limited resources continues. Adams said although income tax collections through April 2012 total $5,142,811, the total is $72,723 less than 2011. “Financial challenges,” she said, “are continued concern with state revenues and whether license fees and gas tax receipts bounce back as budgeted A

longer term concern, she said, is will the next state budget eliminate Local Government funding?” Adams said other challenges include “significant capital needs for a new water source, EPA sewer compliance mandates and capital improvement needs.” She assured council staff will continue to closely monitor the city’s financial outlook. Council filled its vacant at-large seat Monday by appointing Janet D. Born to replace Jeffrey Hewitt who resigned Feb. 21. Born, a retired hospital laboratory technician, was chosen from a field of eight candidates A graduate of Holy Angels High School and Anson L. Brown College in Columbus, the new councilwoman resides at 939 Chestnut Ave. where she has lived the past 18 years. In her application for the position, the Sidney

native said, “I’ve always had a desire to give back something to the place I was born and raised. I feel I have a civic duty to at least try to support the goals of council.” Before her retirement, Born was a lab technician at Gibbons and Wilson Memorial Hospitals. has previously She served on a tree committee and as a poll worker for 10 years. She will receive her oath of office at council’s May 29 meeting. Her term in office expires Nov. 30, 2015. Born, who attended Monday night’s council meeting, said she was proud to have been selected “from such a large group of eligible candidates.” An ordinance assessing residents for the cost of street, avenue and public roadway lighting was approved by council. The cost will be 31 cents per front footage for standard lighting and $1.11

per front footage for decorate street lighting. Introduced, for second readings and action at council’s May 29 meeting, were ordinances authorizing supplemental appropriations increasing 2012 budget appropriations by $562,721 and adopting the 2011 Ohio Fire Code developed by the state fire marshal for statewide applicability. Ron Wolfe, deputy fire chief, shared changes in the new code edition during a power point presentation to council. Appropriations in$155,000 for clude Brookside Park, $130,000 to the Capital Improvement Fund and $120,00 for vacation and sick leave balances upon retirement of city employees. By resolution Monday night, council adopted a proposal to the Ohio Department of Transportation Office of Aviation for 2013 Ohio Airport Grant

funding for Sidney Municipal Airport. The application is in addition to funding requested from the Federal Aviation Authority for the Runway 10/28 shift and extension. The grant, if approved, would provide up to $150,000 for pavement repairs to Runway 5/23 and aprons in the terminal area. It would reimburse the city 90 percent of repair costs. A final resolution adopted Monday night reappointed Randy Magoto, city surveyor, as the city’s representative to the District 13 Public works Integrating Committee. The committee reviews municipality and village Issue I funding requests for review and approval. Transit manager Deb Grogean shared with council recommendations of the Transit Advisory Committee to increase Shelby Public Transit contract rates

due to significant increases in fuel and service costs. Contract rates are charged city and county elderly care and various human services agencies. Recommended increases would be from $45 to $50 per hour, $15 to $19 per passenger and from $3.50 to $4 per mile. An ordinance will be prepared for a first reading at council’s May 29 meeting. Council took no action to oppose a corporate stock ownership change for Applebees Neighborhood Grill & Bar liquor permits and agreed to cancel a scheduled June 2 work session. Prior to Monday’s legislative session, Police Chief Kevin Gessler introduced Sgt. Sean Martin as the police department’s Officer of the Year and accepted a from proclamation Mayor Mike Barhorst designating May 13-19 National Police Week.

Area residents in search of good used clothing have another source in Sidney. Kat’s Apparel, 1281 Wapakoneta Ave., opened in mid-April. The shop is owned by Kathy York, who moved it from Piqua to Sidney. “I’m from Sidney,” York said. “I’ve done some traveling. I’m glad to be home.” The store sells used clothing that York purchases from churches and nonprofit organizations who do clothing drives, but who don’t have the wherewithal to sell donated items themselves. They include day care centers, nursing homes, and other organizations in New York, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Ohio. “It’s better for them,” she said. “It saves them overhead. Day care centers, for instance, don’t always have the extra space to run a thrift shop,” she added. Two local organizations are among her suppliers. She would like to

Who’s going on the trip Thirty-two veterans — eight World War II veterans and 24 Korean War veterans — will leave Friday morning from the Shelby County Fairgrounds and travel to Washington, D.C., to see the memorials built in their honor. World War II veterans going on the trip include: • William A. Dunkel, Russia, Marines; • Vernon J. Gaier, Columbiana, Navy; • Gordon C. Hardwick, Gahana, Royal Canadian Air Force; • Edward W. Kuenning, Celina, Navy; • William J. Lewis, Hunstville, Army; • Rodney S. Luecke, St. Marys, Army Air Corps; • Paul C. “Mike” Snavley, Jacksonville Beach, Fla., Navy;

• Leo Steinke, Sidney, Army; and • Marion Swiss, Sidney, Army. Korean War veterans going on the trip include: • Harold H. “Rocky” Appleton, Columbus, Marines; • Philip J.

VETERANS orders, each veteran received a hand-carved cane created by the Shelby County Woodcarvers. “It’s your job between now and June 18 to make this cane yours and bring it back with you to the dinner,” said Bennett. The dinner in June will be the final event of the trip when veterans receive a book and CD of the experiences. And this weekend, Bennett told the veterans as he had them hold up their canes, he expects them to “raise a little cane” in Washington, D.C. Send-off ceremonies will begin Friday morning at 7:30 at the fairgrounds. The group will begin their journey at 8 a.m., led onto Interstate 75 by numerous motorcycle riders. “I sent out emails to friends I work with who ride motorcycles,” said

Neil Allen, a committee member. “They in turn sent out emails to their friends. Various motorcycle groups got in touch with me and asked if they could post it on their websites. “I also wrote a letter to the editor in the Sidney Daily News inviting people to escort the veterans out of town,” said Allen. “We could have 20 motorcycles or we could have 200 to 300. I have no idea how many are going to show up.” Bennett also recognized the Riverside High School Powerlifting Team, which has supported the veterans through various fundraisers. Tom Easton, a member of the team, will be going on the trip as a volunteer. Members of the Powerlifting Team wrote essays for a chance to go on the trip. Easton’s essay was the winning entry. Volunteers Jim Bar-

SENIOR wanted to share and preserve the sights that nature has given so everyone could visit, he said at the time. Many remember him as Uncle Sam in local parades. “I’m so shy, I don’t know why I got this award,” he said as he accepted the certificate from Brackney. Also recognized by Shelby County Commissioners Larry Kleinhans, Jack Toomey and Julie Echemann were Irvin and Elma Brown for their volunteer contributions at Dorothy Love Retirement Community; Jo Ann Covelli for her outstanding work with Agape; and Ron and Alma Hill for their leadership at the Senior Center. In addition, the Pavilion was honored for its work in the community by being named the Outstanding Senior Agency. Known for its excellence in rehabilitation and skilled care, it recently

He has gone on all six veteran trips from Shelby County as a volunteer. Oakley, a Korean War veteran, went on a recent trip as a veteran. He decided to give back to the group by going as a volunteer on this weekend’s trip. After traveling by bus Friday, the veterans, caregivers and volunteers will visit Arlington National Cemetery, the Marine Memorial, Air Force Memorial, WWII Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Wall and Lincoln Memorial. Wreath laying ceremonies will be held at the WWII and Korean War memorials. The group will arrive back in Sidney Sunday around 5:30 p.m.

May 16, 1912 There seems to be some misunderstanding as to why the approaches to the new St. Marys pike bridge over the C. H. & D. railroad have not been put in proper shape. The case has been in court since July 17, 1911, when Charles Timeus brought an action in court on account of the entrance to his property near the bridge being cut off and a temporary injunction was allowed that that time. The action has been considered on several occasions since then and it is understood that an agreement is expected to be reached soon. The commissioners desire to have the approaches put in a satisfactory condition as soon as possible. ––––– Senator Moses R. Clapp of Minnesota, who will address a Roosevelt meeting at the armory this evening, arrived here this afternoon and is being entertained at the Wagner House. A band concert in front of the hotel will precede the meeting at the armory. Frank E. Arnett of this city, has been selected to preside at the meeting and introduce Senator Clapp.

of aortic stenosis don’t appear until later in life, when the area of the aortic orifice has diminished considerably. Your son had the ultimate test in inspecting the aortic valve, a soundwave picture of the heart with the camera close to the heart in the body’s esophagus — a transesophageal echocardiogram. The valve had not narrowed to the point that treatment was indicated. The dental work done four days before his death no longer requires antibiotic treatment to prevent mouth bacteria from attacking the heart. In only a few unusual heart conditions is this still the practice. Aortic stenosis is not one of those conditions. Three signs indicate that aortic stenosis needs immediate atten-

tion: breathlessness when active, chest pain when active and fainting spells. Your son had none of these. An uncommon, unpreventable and rare complication of aortic stenosis is the sudden onset of a heart rhythm that often is fatal. I believe that’s the cause of your son’s sudden death. His death was unanticipated and unable to be anticipated. No one is guilty of neglect.

Sidney Post 217 will hold baseball tryouts this week for the American Legion season, and those players making the team will be in for a challenging summer. The tryouts are Thursday, Friday and Sunday of this week at Custenborder Field as coaches Jason McLain and Scott Mann try to find the top players in the area to take on the toughest Legion schedule in a lot of years. There are 43 games on this year’s schedule, including 10 doubleheaders, half of those at home. Team manager Jim “Pickle” Koewler was asked to put together a schedule, and he came through, with help from a familiar name in Legion baseball annals. “My wife retired in December and we went to Florida for three months,” said Koewler. “Before we left, they asked if we would work on a schedule. My wife went online and got contact info of team managers from last year.” But after a week, they hadn’t heard from anyone, so they made a 50-mile trip to vist Steve Partington, a former Post 217 coach. Koewler played baseball at Fairlawn with Partington and another former Legion coach, Wayne Shoffner. “Partington was my catcher,” said Koewler, who pitched. “He said I was the easiest guy he ever caught because he never had to catch the ball. Everybody hit it. “We spent some time with him and he said ‘here’s what you need to do.’ And we started

So he helped me out as far as how to get going.” The result is an impressive schedule awaiting the Post 217 players. It will include the Ron Nischwitz Tournament in Dayton June 14-17, the Dick Kuehn Wooden Bat Tournament in Cincinnati the following weekend, and the Ohio State Camp and Tournament in Columbus July 16, 17 and 18. In that one, the players attend camp in the morning and play games in the afternoon.

“Jason (McLain) is my stepson, and after he looked at the schedule, he said ‘I guess you really do know something about baseball.’ He was impressed and so was Scott (Mann).” Th season will begin with a home game on May 29 against Troy Legion. The two teams will then play a doubleheader at Troy two days later. Koewler said Post 217 is planning a raffle, with one of the top prizes being three days and two nights in Atlantic City in October. There will also be Reds and Dayton Dragons tickets to be won.

watching and the way the track is shaped over there, there’s definitely some speed there and it took me most of the race to try and get that figured out,” Kenseth said. “It took the whole test (day), all the practice and most of the race to get that where I thought I was getting it right.” Kenseth expects the learning curve to end this time around for everyone. That includes many of the fans who were stuck in logjams of traffic up to 15 miles long trying to get in. Some fans ended up turning around when officials reversed the traffic flow at the halfway point of the race to help fans exit the facility.

Since then, Simendinger has shouldered the blame at every step along the way and the track’s owner, Speedway Motorsports Inc., has worked diligently to improve this year’s event. “When something like that happens, you do one of two things - you either back up or you stack up. We stacked it all up and we have really worked hard to make sure that wasn’t going to happen Simendinger again,” said. “We are ready to go. We have spent a lot of money, a lot of time, a lot of preparation and I know it’s all going to work because we’ve done all this computer simulation modeling and all this stuff.

OHSAA plans ‘Preseason Cross Country Invitational’ country are eligible to participate in this event. However, space is limited. Registration for the event is on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the capacity of the event has been reached, any remaining schools will be placed on a waiting list.

Race formats There will be two race formats for both boys and girls competition: scored team races and open races. Schools may enter a maximum of 10 runners in each race. Schools with less than five runners may enter the scored team races as individual competitors or the open race, which is not team scored. Total number of competitors

from each school may not exceed 40 (20 boys and 20 girls). Approximately 250 runners will be the maximum number in each race. The number of registrations will determine how many races will be established. The goal is to make the competition as fair as possible, so races will be established with schools of similar enrollment. Race sections will be added as meet entry dictates and will be determined after the registration deadline. The divisional format established by OHSAA for tournament purposes may not necessarily be used to determine the race in which a school will participate.

Lowe, Tribe blank Twins MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Derek Lowe has lasted 16 seasons in the major leagues with one of the sharpest sinkers around, a simple pitch that has helped stabilize Cleveland’s rotation. It was working so well Tuesday against Minnesota’s languishing lineup that Lowe threw it a whole lot. About 120 times. Lowe posted his first shutout in nearly seven years, throwing a six-hitter and leading the Indians past the Twins 5-0. He became the first

pitcher to throw a shutout without a strikeout since Scott Erickson for Baltimore against Kansas City on April 28, 2002. “It’s been a really gratifying start. Coming into this season there were so many questions about, ‘Are you done? Are you going to retire?’” Lowe said. “I worked my tail off, not just to prove people wrong but to get myself back to where I knew I should be.” Shin-Soo Choo, the Indians’ new leadoff man, scored after a

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Speedway general manager Mark Simendinger said there’s no excuse for last year’s traffic blunders at the inaugural Sprint Cup Series race at the track in Sparta. “I want to say one more time how sorry I am that that whole thing occurred,” Simendinger said Tuesday. “... We just weren’t as ready as we thought we were.” While 107,000-plus fans clogged access roads and many missed the race, those who attended didn’t see much of the anticipated show either. Kyle Busch won the race that was filled with buzz beforehand, but lacked three-wide racing after the track’s signature bumps in Turns 3 and 4 did little to provide expected drama. Simendinger and Daytona 500 champion Matt Kenseth toured a Ford assembly plant Tuesday that built this year’s Quaker State 400 Ford Escape pace car for the June 30 race. Kenseth said he’s ready to return to Kentucky after gaining valuable track experience following last year’s sixth-place finish by learning about the quirks in Turns 3 and 4. “There’s kind of a groove where some people that I could tell had some more experience or were better at it ‚Äî like Kyle Busch comes to mind.

As someone who used the parks while growing up, I look forward to their continued care for future generations to enjoy.” The city of Sidney has more than 20 boards and commissions on which the residents can volunteer their time and talents for the benefit of the community. Residents interested in becoming involved on these boards may contact the city clerk, Joyce Goubeaux, at 498-8143 or email for information and to fill out an application.

Advice to high school grads People from many walks of life offer guidance BY JIM JOHNSON For hundreds of young people in the county, this is a crossroads time when Tostrick they start out on their personal road in life. For some, the road leads to more education. For some, it is time to work. For others, it is a time of realization that they are no longer children, but fledgling adults who need to make certain decisions. Some will choose a road that becomes a dead end. For them, it means backing up and taking another road. Some will end up taking some detours. It is a rare few who ever start on one road and stay on it their entire life. One of the greatest gifts for graduating seniors is wisdom. This article provides wisdom from a number of local people who have covered many miles on the road of life. The following people have learned many of life’s crucial lessons and become successful in what they do. • Steven J. Tostrick, health commissioner, SidneyShelby County Health Department: “Success is measured in various ways. You have the opportunity to be successful in many ways. I feel the most important aspect is to be happy with your choices and take risks in order to be the best you can be in life. “Avoid allowing mistakes to take control of your future plans. Learn from your mistakes and turn them into new opportunities and life will take you on a journey.” • Michael Jannides Spot Restaurant and Catering: “My advice to graduating students this spring would be that there are no guarantees in life. “Enjoy what you are doing. Find a way to do work that makes you happy. Life is too short to do otherwise.” • Tom Sheehan, vice president, Human Resources, Emerson Climate Technologies: “Congratulations on completing high school, which is a great accomplishment. Now, if you don’t have your future all figured out, that’s OK. If you do have a clear path in mind, fine ... but your direction will probably change. “Take time to evaluate what you are passionate about — your likes and your dislikes; what you are good at and what you would like to be better at. Rather than rush into starting a career, or preparing for a specific pro-



fession, seek out opportunities to explore several fields — you just might find one you never thought would be of interest. But do create a plan to continue to develop yourself, and act on that plan ... nobody else will do this for you — it’s your life and your responsibility. “Also, only you can define success as it applies to yourself. The high-paying job or the fancy job title do not necessarily translate into success, especially if those don’t line up with your passion. Identify your passion, develop yourself to serve in an area that fits your passion, and get moving in that direction.” • Jay Gillespie, senior clinician, Miami County Recovery Council: “Congratulations! Take time to reflect and re-evaluate your plans. Stay focused on your goals and don’t get distracted. Stay positive and hopeful.” • Tom Bey, director, Shelby County Job and Family Services: “In today’s environment, it is important to be prepared for ‘continuous learning.’ This means that regardless of your chosen field of work or career, you will need to obtain new skills on an ongoing basis. This begins immediately after high school graduation. “Technology is changing the workplace environment at a very rapid pace and graduates need to change with it. This may mean a four-year degree, for other graduates it may mean obtaining a technical education for the skilled manufacturing sector. “Whatever path is chosen, it is important to keep learning for the rest of your career.” • The Rev. Harold McKnight, chaplain, Wilson Memorial Hospital: “My advice to graduates would be basically three things: “l. Make sure you have established your relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. He will not only give you eternal life but will be an invaluable companion in this life who loves you dearly and wants nothing but the best for your life. “2. Make no major decision without much prayer for divine wisdom and direction. It is very important that you choose the right job, college, partner in life and the place


where you reside and serve the Lord. The wrong choice in each of these areas can be disastrous. The Lord is eager to direct you in each of these areas and avoid serious mistakes when you seek him for his wise counsel. “3. Fill each day with time in the Word of God, prayer, reading and serving people all around you with all your might. “Do this and your reward, as a Christian, will be great when you are one day standing before the Lord who loves to reward faithful service.” • Scott Elchert, Jackson Center High School athletic director: “My advice to the seniors would be to enter all endeavors by first seeking spiritual guidance. I believe this provides one with the proper foundation to all decisions.



“After that, I would encourage the seniors to approach their endeavors, challenges, and things that are important to them with what I call the three P’s: pride, purpose and passion. I always use the following definitions when discussing the three P’s. “Pride — satisfaction in a job well-done and admired by others. “Purpose — a desire to accomplish a goal. “Passion — a strong liking or enthusiasm. “My feeling is that if you apply the three P’s to the things that are important to you, it paves the way for success. Plan your work and then work your plan by using pride, purpose and passion. I utilize the three P’s with my basketball teams. It is always one of our keys to victory with every game we play.”

Wisdom of notable people “We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.” — Abraham Lincoln “I found that the men and women who got to the top were those who did the jobs they had in hand, with everything they had of energy and enthusiasm and hard work.” — Harry S. Truman “Goodness is the only investment that never fails.” — Henry David Thoreau “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” — John Quincy Adams “Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we’ve ever known.” — Ronald Reagan “Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” — Theodore Roosevelt “Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” —Thomas Edison “I’m a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” — Thomas Jefferson “Always do the right thing. You know what it is. Don’t just pick a career at which you’re good. Pursue something that comes intuitively for you and that you love instinctively. Success will follow. If everyone’s doing it, don’t. Popularity wanes. Fame and fortune are fleeting. Reputation remains. How you treat others defines who you are” — Steve Odland, CEO, Office Depot

Board learns of survey The S&H Products Board of Trustees heard plans for a satisfaction survey that will be sent to employees and families at its recent meeting. The board heard that S&H staff have been meeting to assess areas of need in the program and how they can address needs. As part of that assessment, the staff was to send a satisfaction survey to S&H employees, families and providers. It was noted that S&H wants to continue to improve its services. The board was informed that Jessica Baltes began working for S&H as a parttime employment trainer on April 9. Baltes will be responsible for developing a curriculum and providing job training for those participating in the Bridges to Transition program that serves those who are between the ages of 14 and 22. The position was made possible through federal funds through the Bridges to Transition grant.


Krista Oldiges, program manager, represented S&H at a provider fair on April 3 at the Shelby Hills gymnasium. There were 11 vendors present for the event who offer day services, including those from Miami, Mercer, Allen and Shelby counties. S&H staff attended an in-service on April 9 at Edison Community College. Peter Leidy, who has been involved in the disability field since 1983, gave a talk on “Doing Our Best Work — 10 Ingredients of Quality Support.” Rick Husa, adult services director, told board members there is a new bagging job in-house that will offer ongoing work. Husa stated that current jobs for S&H employees remain steady. The board also discussed community employment vs. sheltered employment during the meeting. The next meeting of the board is scheduled Friday.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.
