Sentencing reactions Nasal, Lenhart comment on Kimpel case BY KATHY LEESE The special prosecutor in former Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel’s cases, along with the current sheriff, have commented on disposition of the cases Friday. Among views expressed was a desire to recoup salary paid to Kimpel while he was under suspension, as well as court costs. Kimpel was sentenced in Shelby County Common Pleas Court to two years probation on a felony charge of unauthorized use of a computer or a telecommunications device. A sexual battery case in Auglaize County was dismissed at the request of



the prosecutor. Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal, who served as special prosecutor, talked about why he recommended the Auglaize County case be dismissed. That case involved a charge that Kimpel had assaulted one of his former deputies, Jodi Van Fossen, at her home in Wapakoneta.

“The case was presented to a grand jury in an open and honest fashion,” Nasal said, with both Kimpel and Van Fossen present. “The grand jury apparently found the victim credible and returned an indictment on her behalf.” “As we met with the victim and reviewed with her the proceedings and the evidence, she began to become reluctant to testify. Her feeling was that emotionally and psychologically, she and her family had been put through enough. The victim felt that justice was best served by him (Kimpel) being permanently removed from the law enforcement community,” Nasal explained. “The plea negotiations ac-

complished his removal without forcing the victim to relive the trauma of the original alleged offense. ‘He said/she said’ cases are extremely difficult to prove to begin with. A reluctant victim compounds the difficulties with such cases,” Nasal said. “The victim never stated that she would refuse to cooperate (but) was adamant she did not wish to do so.” “I’m disappointed that the allegations that were made will not be fully resolved. Nevertheless, I understand the victim’s reluctance to proceed into what are very hostile court proceedings,” Nasal said. See REACTIONS/Page 2A

Undoing health law could have messy ripple effects WASHINGTON (AP) — It sounds like a silver lining. Even if the Supreme Court overturns President Barack Obama’s health care law, employers can keep offering popular coverage for the young adult children of their workers. But here’s the catch: The parents’ taxes would go up. That’s only one of the messy potential ripple effects when the Supreme Court delivers its verdict on the Affordable Care Act this month. The law affects most major components of the U.S. health care system in its effort to extend coverage to millions of uninsured people. Because the legislation is so complicated, an orderly unwinding would prove difficult if it were overturned entirely or in part.

Better Medicare prescription benefits, currently saving hundreds of dollars for older people with high drug costs, would be suspended. Ditto for preventive care with no copayments, now available to retirees and working families alike. Partially overturning the law could leave hospitals, insurers and other service providers on the hook for tax increases and spending cuts without the law’s promise of more paying customers to offset losses. If the law is upheld, other kinds of complications could result. The nation is so divided that states led by Republicans are largely unprepared to carry out critical requirements such as creating insurance markets. Things may not

settle down. “At the end of the day, I don’t think any of the major players in the health insurance industry or the provider community really wants to see the whole thing overturned,” said Christine Ferguson, a health policy expert who was commissioner of public health in Massachusetts when Mitt Romney was governor. “Even though this is not the most ideal solution, at least it is moving us forward, and it does infuse some money into the system for coverage,” said Ferguson, now at George Washington University. As the GOP presidential candidate, Romney has pledged to wipe Obama’s law off the books. But he defends his Massachusetts law that served as a proSee RIPPLE/Page 5A

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) — Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar staunchly denied Sunday that he punched and choked his 15-year-old daughter in an argument, telling his congregation the allegations made in a police report are nothing but “exaggeration and sensationalism.” “I will say this emphatically: I should have never been arrested,” Dollar said in his first public appearance two days after police charged him with misdemeanor counts of simple battery and cruelty to children. The pastor got an enthusiastic ovation from the packed church as he took the pulpit Sunday at the World Changers Church International in metro Atlanta. He addressed the criminal charges head-on for several minutes before moving on to his sermon. “I want you all to hear personally from me that all is well in the Dollar household,” Dollar said. The 50-year-old Dollar is one of the most prominent AfricanAmerican preachers based around Atlanta, with 30,000 members in the Atlanta area and a ministry of satellite churches across the U.S. He was arrested after his 15year-old daughter called 911 at about 1 a.m. Friday and told a Fayette County sheriff’s deputy that she and her father argued when he said she couldn’t go to a party. A police report says the girl told a deputy her father charged at her, put his hands around her throat, began to punch her and started hitting her with his shoe. The deputy noted a scratch on her neck. The report said the deputy also interviewed Dollar’s 19year-old daughter, who said her father grabbed her sister’s shoulders and slapped her in the face and choked her for about five seconds. She said her sister tried to break free, but did not fight back. When her father threw the 15-year-old on the floor, the older girl ran to get her mother. Dollar’s wife, Taffi, told the deputy she did not see the fight.

Many allegations

insist on pursuing it.” Regarding the law enforcement computermisuse case against Kimpel, Nasal said two cases were dropped because of technical difficulties in identifying the people Kimpel allegedly looked up for personal reasons. He said one case was dropped because they believed the woman had asked Kimpel to look her up in the system, and in another case they could not locate the alleged victim. Nasal responded to Kimpel’s comments that he did not know he was doing anything wrong when he chose to look up individuals for his own personal use. “That’s bull pucky,” he stated.

‘Powerful tools’ “Technology, particularly criminal-justice technology and information exchange, has given the government powerful, powerful tools to invade the privacy of everyone’s everyday life. Their most innocent and personal actions may be subject to official review,” Nasal said. “To have an elected official abuse his access to infringe upon the privacy rights of everyday U.S. citizens is not only egregious, but incredibly frightening. Prosecutors and law enforcement personnel have a particular responsibility to guard against any misuse of that exceptional power.” Nasal said he was thankful to have the assistance of several people during the investigation and prosecution of Kimpel’s case. He particularly cited Lt. Jim Frye of the Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office. He said Frye, “at great professional, if not personal risk … took it upon himself to provide me with information about individuals involved that made him no small target within the community.”

“There were numerous, numerous allegations about a whole range of conduct, each of which had to be run down to see if it had any merit. We ran into a lot of dead-end streets where nothing turned up or there was insufficient evidence to proceed at that time. Those are the kinds of things that seem to make an investigation last forever.” Nasal said there were a “multitude of things” that occurred during Kimpel’s tenure as sheriff that “would constitute policy and violabest-practices tions, but that were beyond the scope of my charge as special prosecutor.” Nasal said he believes current Sheriff John Lenhart and his administration are “looking at all of those (policies and procedures). They’re trying to make a shift in the environment to a more posiAlso cited tive, more transparent” He also cited First operation.

From Page 1 Nasal addressed the issue of having Kimpel repay his salary and possibly other money to the county. “Although the enforcement of those provisions is beyond my charge as special prosecutor, I believe Shelby County authorities will be following up on that issue,” he said. Nasal also talked about the law that allowed for Kimpel’s suspension from office. Nasal is the first prosecutor to use the law to have a sheriff removed from office. “I think it’s a new law and a valuable one in terms of protecting the accused and the public,” he said. “It was certainly a learning experience being the first to use it. I think there will be legal challenges to it in the future; I think it will withstand constitutional scrutiny.”

‘Ethics’ “When you elect (public) officials through the democratic system, you hope and pray you’ve elected people with the ethics they displayed during the election process,” Nasal said. He noted the process is not perfect, as evidenced by the Kimpel cases. Sheriff John Lenhart also spoke out about the cases and his reaction to the outcome. “I’ve done political corruption cases statewide — village, township, the county and state officials — and this is no different than the rest. I guess I am saddened because it erodes the public trust in government,” Lenhart said. He noted that law enforcement officers are taught there are three aspects to the criminal justice system: enforcement, prosecutor and judicial. “We were trained to do our part; the rest of it is up to the prosecutors and judicial,” he said.

Cost to county Lenhart addressed the amount of money that Kimpel’s case has cost the county. “We need to recoup every cent we can,” he said, making special reference to salary Kimpel continued to draw while under suspension. Lenhart said he is operating the Sheriff’s Office at a 2001 budget level, has a $1 million shortfall and is operating with the same number of employees he had when he served 20 years ago. Lenhart said he understands that Shelby County Prosecutor Ralph Bauer will be attempting to recoup the money for Kimpel’s wages “and I would hope they go after court costs and his retirement. I think the answer is he (Kimpel) owes Shelby County for those expenses that were incurred because of him.” “All of us are glad this is behind us,” Lenhart said, noting he is “looking forward to moving forward.” Lenhart said he and his employees have been working to develop “additional checks and balances — and hopefully we will avoid this kind of thing in the future.”

“I am ecstatic that the end result was to remove a person from the highest law enforcement job in the county, who by his conduct was clearly unfit to hold the same,” Nasal noted. He said that of all the cases he tries, he dislikes public corruption most of all. “Next to child sexual cases, I abhor public corruption cases,” he said. Nasal also addressed why it took nearly two years to resolve the cases. “Two things were happening when this thing came to light. There was a criminal investigation and civil or administrative action(s) were being taken,” he said. “Each of those involved a different investigating agency. Each involved different legal advisers and it took a while to separate those things, re-group, refocus and then begin anew on each specific area.

Crowds flock to Versailles Poultry Days BY TOM BARNETT VERSAILLES — Crowds flocked to Versailles for barbecue chicken, the annual parade and fun in Heritage Park during Versailles Poultry Days 2012. Ideal weekend weather helped make Poultry Producers’ 61st annual event successful. Theme of this year’s event was “Operation Poultry,” honoring all currently serving in the military as well as all area veterans. Veterans were remembered in a downtown ceremony at Fountain Square that included a firing squad and color guard. The grand parade at 11 a.m. Saturday included military vehicles and marching veterans and there were displays from military history and re-enactment groups and the National Guard throughout the weekend.

Queen crowning Following her crowning Friday, Miss Chick, Kelly Murphy, daughter of Greg and Karen Murphy, of Versailles, reigned over this year’s Poultry Days activities. The queen received her crown and $300. First runner-up Adea Schmitmeyer, daughter of Joe and Linda Schmitmeyer, received $150, and Summer Condon, daughter of Gary and Teresa Condon, $100 as second runner-up in the event. Ava Subler, 6, daughter of Ryan and Jena Subler, of Florence, Ky., was crowned Little Miss Poultry Days. She received $100. First runner-up Jana Luthman, 4, daughter of Randy and Danielle Luthman, of Versailles, was awarded $75. Second runner-up, Chloe Steinbrunner, 4. daughter of Lance and Jill Steinbrunner, of Versaiiles, received $50. Miss Chick will promote Poultry Days at other area festivals throughout the year. Drive-through and walk-through sales of barbecue chicken dinners, the signature Poultry Days event, occurred throughout the weekend until sold out each day. Committee members hoped to sell more than 24,000 chicken dinners to match sales in previous years.

IN THIS Feb. 7 file photo, Ohio Gov. John Kasich delivers his State of the State address at Wells Academy/Steubenville High School. The nation’s unemployment rate of 8.2 percent may sink President Barack Obama’s re-election bid, but one detail brightens his hopes. About 10 battleground states will decide the election, and seven of them have employment levels that beat the U.S. average. In Ohio, the quintessential toss-up state and practically a mustwin for Mitt Romney, Republican Gov. Kasich tries to finesse the political dilemma by saying jobs have increased despite Obama’s policies. Obama’s policies. “We fight like crazy to outperform the federal government,� he told reporters last week in the Statehouse in Columbus. “We have. We’re down to 7.4 percent unemployment.� But Ohio can’t continually buck the national trend, Kasich said, and he warned of a likely drop in job growth soon, largely due to gridlock and uncertainty in Washington. “Rome is on fire and it’s singeing places like Ohio,� he said. “We’ll go our own way, but the headwinds are kicking up again.�

Some of the most politically contested states are struggling more than others. Florida’s unemployment rate has dropped steadily for nearly a year, but at 8.7 percent still tops the national average. North Carolina’s rate is even worse, and Nevada has the highest, 11.7 percent. If Obama were to carry all the competitive states where the employment rate is brighter than the national average — New Hampshire, Iowa, Virginia, Wisconsin, Ohio,

Soap box derby looks to future

   &#  ! #!" # %"  




BY LISA CORNWELL Associated Press AKRON (AP) — The All-American Soap Box Derby is preparing for its 75th anniversary next month with growing confidence in the future of the Ohio-based organization after years of financial problems. The president and chief executive officer of the nonprofit organization in northeast Ohio says a new focus on education and new sponsors and events are helping revitalize the derby. Rule changes enabling more young people to participate also should contribute to growth, President and CEO Joe Mazur said in a telephone interview from Akron. The Akron-based nonprofit organization lost corporate sponsorship and was sued in 2009 by a bank seeking payment on $580,000 in loans, but the city agreed to guarantee the loans. The derby has worked to pay the loans and find ways to increase funding. The financial problems inspired actor and director Corbin Bernsen to make “25 Hill,� a film about a derby racer that premiered in Akron last year and generated $150,000 for the organization. Additional money also has come from foundations and grants, sales of derby car kits and licensing agreements with cities hosting derby qualifying races. Dan Colantone, president of the Greater Akron Chamber, is confident the derby is now moving in the right direction.

Pennsylvania and Colorado — he would win re-election handily. But if he loses the battleground states where the rate now exceeds 7 percent, an oft-cited threshold that may mean nothing, Romney would because he prevail would take Ohio, Pennsylvania and Colorado, plus Florida, North Carolina and Nevada. campaign Romney also must cope with boasts, often by Republicans and business leaders, that things are much better at the local level than in other regions.

800 Marines land in city for Marine Week CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohio will get a chance to celebrate its ties to the Marine Corps and its traditions with Monday’s start of Marine Week in Cleveland. Streets in downtown Cleveland were blocked off Sunday as the Marines began setting up their equipment. About 800 Marines will take part in seven days of morale-building displays of Marine Corps training and equipment. The marquee events include a staged invasion along the Lake Erie waterfront with tracked vehicles and parachute jumps. Events, including Marine band concerts, will be held at various locations, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the lakefront Voinovich Park.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The nation’s unemployment rate of 8.2 percent may sink President Barack Obama’s re-election bid, but one detail brightens his hopes. About 10 battleground states will decide the election, and seven of them have employment levels that beat the U.S. average. That doesn’t guarantee a second term, of course. But it’s a reminder that the national rate, from a purely political standpoint, is not necessarily the be-all, end-all statistic. Most of the states are led by Republican governors eager to highlight their progress in creating jobs. That complicates GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s claim that the economy has been so mismanaged that Obama deserves to be ousted. In addition, a chief Romney criticism, that Obama is hindering energy production, is undermined by robust drilling for natural gas that’s creating jobs and some wealthy landowners in two important states, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In Ohio, the quintessential toss-up state and practically a must-win for Romney, Republican Gov. John Kasich tries to finesse the political dilemma by saying jobs have increased despite

OTTAWA (AP) — A new flood warning system will give residents of a water-weary town in northwest Ohio an advance warning the next time the Blanchard River spills over its banks. Residents of Ottawa in Putnam County will be able to receive text alerts from the system that will be able to send out warnings alert at least 24 hours before a flood hits. The $200,000 warning system will pay for itself because it will give people in the Putnam County town more time to protect their belongings, said Scott Jackson, a deputy director with the U.S. Geological Survey, which helped develop the system. “People can help themselves to prepare,� he said. “They will have more time to move items such as cars and furniture out of the flood area.� The estimated reduction in flood damage costs when there is a 24-hour advance notice is about 30 percent, he said. Flood prevention has become a top priority along the Blanchard River where five major floods since 2007 have soaked the towns of Findlay and Ottawa. The worst damage came in August 2007 when flooding caused more than $100 million in damage in Findlay and an estimated $12 million in damage in Ottawa. Findlay received a warning system three years ago. The cost of the system in now is being paid for by the town, the U.S. Geological Survey and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. It includes three stream gauges to monitor water flow and levels. “We take lessons from past floods, integrate them with detailed mapping, then bring the community and outside agencies together to improve our flood warnings capabilities,� said Trent Schade, a hydrologist with the weather service. A map of the area will give officials a better idea of what areas will be under water as the water rises. Residents and business owners will be able to see the maps on the Internet. “They help people visualize which areas will likely be flooded as the stage gets higher,� said Matt Whitehead, a Geological Survey hydrologist. Other efforts to find ways to control flooding have been going on for several years, but the slowness of federally required flood studies and the uncertainty over how long it will take to build flood-control projects have led to frustration.

Bridge to be saved Vt. MONTPELIER, (AP) — A historic but narrow Vermont bridge is going to be updated with a technique that seems like something only a superhero could accomplish: Engineers will cut the 350-foot bridge in two lengthwise, push the sides apart, widen them and put it back together. The project is expected to cost more than double a new bridge across the Winooski River in Richmond, but officials say it’s worth the cost to preserve the historic look. The Pennsylvania truss bridge was built in 1929. Such bridges are marked by crisscrossing I-beams that form a latticework that creates a steel canopy above the road surface. The separating, winching and refastening is only supposed to take a day, but it will be a year before traffic is rolling again on the bridge.

Rescue loans for Spain’s banks buys Europe time WASHINGTON (AP) — A $125 billion plan to rescue Spain’s banks won’t solve Europe’s debt crisis or ease the pain of double-digit unemployment across the continent. But it is likely to calm financial markets and buy time for European policymakers to work with other weak economies threatening the stability of the 17-nation eurozone. Europe still has plenty of troubles to address in the three other countries that have already received financial help — Greece, Portugal and Ireland. In Greece, voters could elect a government next week that will refuse to live up to the terms of the country’s $170 billion rescue package. Portugal is combating a toxic combination of high debts and 15 percent unemployment. Ireland is cleaning up a banking mess a lot like Spain’s. Then there’s Italy, the eurozone’s thirdthe largest economy, where debts are pil-

ing up as the economy stagnates. “We still have some pretty fundamental problems to solve,” says Nicolas Veron, senior fellow at the Bruegel think tank in Brusssels. “We need more radical solutions than this one.” Germany, worried that it will get stuck with the bill for any ambitious schemes, has rejected several ideas for easing the crisis. It has been reluctant to ease the terms of previous bailouts to reduce the pain of austerity on Greece, Portugal and Ireland. And it has resisted calls for the creation of joint “eurobonds” that would raise money and spread responsibility for repayment across the eurozone. Likewise, the European Central Bank has been reluctant to intervene to jolt the eurozone economy. Last week, it passed up an opportunity to reduce interest rates. And it has been reluctant to flood the economy with money to push

down interest rates the way the U.S. Federal Reserve has. But the plan to lend gobs of money to Spanish banks eases an immediate crisis in the euro’s fourth-largest economy. The deterioration of Spain’s banks and the pressing need for a rescue was threatening to bankrupt its government. That would likely cause far more pain for Europe than the financial messes in Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Investors were already worried about what will happen when Greek voters go to the polls June 17. If Greece reneges on the strict austerity measures that come with its rescue package, it could be forced to abandon the euro. Greece’s departure from the Eurozone would likely cause financial chaos across Europe: Greek debts would go from being denominated in sturdy euros to being denominated in Greek drachmas of dubious value.

Al-Qaida incites Tunisians CAIRO (AP) — AlQaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri called on the Tunisian people to rise up against the country’s Islamist ruling party for accepting a constitution not based on Islamic Shariah law, according to a recording released Sunday. In an audio recording posted on militant forums, al-Zawahri said the leaders of the Ennahda party, a moderate Islamist group that formed a new government after October elections, are violating Islam’s teachings by accepting a constitution that does not consider Shariah the sole source for legislation. Al-Zawahri said Ennahda favors “an Islam accepted by the U.S. State Department, the EU and the sheikdoms of the Gulf, an Islam that accepts gambling clubs and nude beaches.”

Mubarak in critical condition CAIRO (AP) — Hosni Mubarak is slipping in and out of consciousness eight days after the ousted Egyptian leader was sent to prison to begin serving a life sentence, a security official said on Sunday. With rumors of the former president’s death spreading rapidly, authorities granted his wife, former first lady Suzanne Mubarak, and the couple’s two daughters-in-law special permission to visit him in Cairo’s Torah prison early that morning.


Loose bull leads to shots fired CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a New Hampshire man rammed another man’s vehicle with his own and fired shots at the man’s feet in a confrontation over who was responsible for allowing a bull to get loose. Concord police say 28year-old resident Brian Downs fired three shots: two into the ground at the other man’s feet and one into the air. Downs was arrested Saturday evening on two counts of reckless conduct and one count of criminal threatening. He is being held on $55,000 bail and scheduled to appear in court Monday.

AUBURN POLICE Chief Tommy Dawson holds up a photo of Desmonte Leonard, 22, of Montgomery, Ala., the suspect wanted for fatally shooting three people, including two former Auburn University football players, and wounding another three people during a party at an apartment complex near the school, at a news conference Sunday in Auburn, Ala. Dawson said that current football player Eric Mack was among those wounded and was being treated at a hospital. The two slain former players were identified as Edward Christian and Ladarious Phillips. The other person killed was identified as Demario Pitts.

Shooting suspect sought AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Investigators were searching for a gunman who killed three people — including two former Auburn University football players — and wounded three others at a pool party near campus after several men began punching each other in a fight over a woman, authorities and witnesses said Sunday. One of the wounded was shot in the head and critically hurt. Another was a current player, Eric Mack. Desmonte Leonard opened fire at the party at an apartment complex near the university, Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson said. Federal marshals and police were searching for Leonard, who faces three counts of capital murder. Slain were Edward Christian, who had not been playing because of a back injury, and

Ladarious Phillips, who had previously quit playing football. The other person killed was 20-year-old Demario Pitts. Officials also said Xavier Moss and John Robertson were wounded. Robertson had been shot in the head and was in critical condition; Moss was released from the hospital. “The only connection that the Auburn football team has to this is they are victims of a brutal shooting. Sometimes the young men get a bad rap, I feel like, but they are the victims today,” Dawson said. Police say Desmonte Leonard has been charged with capital murder and has not yet been captured. Dawson urged Leonard to turn himself in and also said authorities were searching for two other persons of interest. Dawson stressed that the football team was connected to the shooting only because cur-

rent and former players were victims. He said he did not know why the party was being held, or what sparked the fight. “Them being football players really has nothing to do with this. They’re victims of a shooting,” Dawson said. Turquorius Vines, 23, said he was at the pool party Saturday evening at the University Heights apartments with one of his friend, Pitts. He said he and his friend were approached by two other men who started arguing with them over a woman. Vines said he punched one of the men, while Pitts hit both of the men over the head with a bottle. Either one or both of the two men then started shooting, he said. He said his friend was shot and killed, while two others also were hit by gunfire. Vines said he had never before seen the men who he had been arguing with.

RIPPLE totype for Obama’s. While it’s unclear how the justices will rule, oral arguments did not go well for the Obama administration. The central issue is whether the government can require individuals to have health insurance and fine them if they don’t. That mandate takes effect in 2014, at the same time that the law would prohibit insurance companies from denying coverage to people with existing health problems. Most experts say the coverage guarantee would balloon costs unless virtually all people joined the insurance pool. Opponents say Congress overstepped its constitutional authority by issuing the insurance mandate. The administration says the requirement is permissible because it serves to regulate interstate commerce. Most people already are insured. The law provides subsidies to help uninsured middle-class households pay premiums and expands Medicaid to pick up more low-income people. The coverage for young adults up to age 26 on a parent’s health insurance is a popular provision that no one’s argu-

NEW YORK (AP) — Robert F. Kennedy Jr. accused his estranged wife, Mary, of abusing his children from an earlier marriage, including stealing items from his young daughter, showing up uninvited on trips he took after they separated and sometimes calling him dozens of times a day, according to a legal filing revealed Sunday. Mary Kennedy killed herself last month at the family’s estate in Bedford, N.Y. Robert Kennedy filed for divorce two years ago, and the case was pending when she died. The couple married in 1994 and had four children together. Portions of a confidential affidavit filed in 2011 in the divorce case were posted online by The Daily Beast as part of a cover story in Newsweek magazine about Mary Kennedy that was written by Kennedy family biographer Laurence Leamer. A spokesman for the site declined to comment on how the affidavit was obtained. Its contents convey years of strain in the Kennedys’ relationship. Among them, Kennedy recounted instances around 1997 of taking his daughter from his first marriage, then 9, to the airport at the end of weekend visits. She’d continually lose things like her wallet or plane ticket, and he chided her for it. He said his teary-eyed daughter told him that his second wife was taking the items and when he tried to convince her otherwise, “She looked me in the eye and said, ‘No, Daddy, Mary hates me.’” He said he found the items weeks later, hidden in a drawer under his wife’s clothes.

From Page 1 ing about. A report last week from the Commonwealth Fund estimated that 6.6 million young adults have taken advantage of the benefit, while a new Gallup survey showed the uninsured rate for people age 18-25 continues to decline, down to 23 percent from 28 percent when the law took effect. Families will be watching to see if their 20-somethings transitioning to the work world will get to keep that newfound security. Because the benefit is a winner with consumers, experts say many employers and insurers would look for ways to keep offering it even if there’s no legal requirement to do so. But economist Paul Fronstin of the Employee Benefit Research Institute says many parents would pay higher taxes as a result because they would have to pay for the young adult’s coverage with after-tax dollars. Under the health care law, that coverage now comes out of pre-tax dollars. Fronstin says there’s no way to tell exactly how much that tax increase might be, but a couple of hundred dollars a year or more is a reasonable ball-

park estimate. Upper-income taxpayers would have a greater liability. “Adult children aren’t necessarily dependents for tax purposes, but an employer can allow anyone to be on a plan, just like they now allow domestic partners,” said Fronstin. “If your employer said, ‘I’m going to let you keep this,’ it would become a taxable benefit for certain people.” Advocates for the elderly are also worried about untoward ripple effects. If the entire law is overturned, seniors with high prescription costs in Medicare’s “donut hole” coverage gap could lose annual discounts averaging about $600. AARP policy director David Certner says he would hope the discounts could remain in place at least through the end of this year. Yet that might not be possible. Lacking legal authority, Medicare would have to take away the discounts. Drugmakers, now bearing the cost, could decide they want to keep offering discounts voluntarily. But then they’d risk running afoul of other federal rules that bar medical providers from offering financial inducements to Medicare recipients.

Band to play old-fashioned music The Sidney Civic Band will feature the sounds of an old-fashioned band concert Friday at 7 p.m. on the courthouse square. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to the First Church of God, 1510 Campbell Road. Highlighted during the evening will be alto saxophonist J.R. Price, a professional educator for 26 years. He is the director of orchestra/jazz education for the Greenville City School District and the director of the Greenville Municipal Concert Band. Price has performed with many local bands. He will perform songs including “Yakety Sax,” by Randolph, and “Georgia on My Mind,” by Carmichael. Civic Band Musical Director Phillip Chilcote has invited a guest conductor to conduct a song at each of the band’s summer concerts this year. Appearing this week will be Tim Elliott, a director of the Englewood Civic Band since 1997. A native Daytonian, he graduated from Wright State University in 1971 and has taught private lessons on woodwinds since 1966. He has performed professionally, locally, and across the nation since he was 16 in a variety of ensembles. Nine Shelby County students joined the Sidney Civic Band for the Sept. 11 Tenth Anniversary Commemorative Concert attended by



1,200 people in the fall of 2011. The success of this event, and positive partnership with the schools, has prompted the Sidney Civic Band to provide educaadditional tional/performance opportunities for high school music students. The band’s goal is to have a student from each high school band in Shelby County to serve as an apprentice in its organization, performing throughout the summer with the Sidney Civic Band. Seven students were chosen through a competitive audition process coordinated by Civic Band board member Skip Wolford. Each student has partnered with a band member who will serve as mentor, and one will win a $500 Wolford Music Foundation Scholarship presented by Skip and Tracy Wolford at the season’s end. Joining the band for its 2012 season are Emily Christman, Bflat clarinet, Anna High School, daughter of Dan and Carolyn Christman; Nathan Epperson, trombone, Russia High School, son of Mike and Cheri Epperson; Adam Ewry, tuba, Botkins High School, son of Pat and Shelli Ewry; Ryan

Gates, euphonium, Sidney High School, son of Jill Gates; Cameron Hina, trumpet, Fairlawn High School, son of Mark and Nicole Hina; Michaela Leininger, trumpet, Jackson Center High School, daughter of and Toni Kent Leininger; and Emilie Pax, flute/piccolo, Lehman High School, daughter of Dennis and Chris Pax. “We are very excited to welcome these students to join us for the first year of our student apprenticeship program,” Chilcote said. “This new venture is a bridge between the present and the future of band music performance. In an age of continuing budget cuts and an emphasis on academics over the arts, it is very important to encourage young musicians to continue playing after they have graduated from school. Music provides so many benefits both to those who play the songs and those who listen to them. Each young person playing with the civic band now has a professional opportunity to perform with an experienced group of musicians before graduation. “We are also pleased to work, once again this year, with the First Church of God’s Relay for Life team who will be offering some special treats for the old-fashioned band concert: hot dogs, ice cream and desserts,” Chilcote added. “The theme fits right in with the 105th

anniversary of one of our sponsors, the Spot Restaurant, which donates a free pie for each of our performances. The Spot Restaurant began in 1907 when a man named Spot Miller brought his chuckwagon into town and set up business at the corner of Court Street and Ohio Avenue. Over a century later, the beloved restaurant, which once sold hamburgers for a nickel, is ‘The Spot To Eat’ and is well-known for its delicious pies. Owner Michael Jannides has been very supportive of the band by donating a pie each week to a lucky concert-goer.” Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Shelby and Darke counties will be on the square selling tickets for its Daffy Derby. The Sidney Civic Band concerts will be on the courthouse square every Friday night at 7 p.m. through July 20, including a guest performance by Swing Era Band on July 13. The concerts are free to the public who should take lawn chairs.

They will continue to rest in the soil until they receive adequate moisture for germination. Before you start pulling the planter out again, run a germination test on the seed that has been sitting in the ground: Collect a few from different parts of the field and place them on some moist (not sopping wet) paper towels; cover them with a second moist paper towel and wait 48 hours to check. Don’t let the towels dry out. If the seed is healthy, it will germinate and produce a nice white root. If it is struggling, the seed will shrink.

population, are considered food insecure, meaning they don’t always have access to food. Organizations like OASHF help bridge the food gap by providing nourishment to those in need. The OASHF and its network of providers served more than 2.3 million Ohioans in the last three months. Approximately 35 percent of those served were children (under the age of 18) and about 14 percent were seniors (age 60 and older). Additionally, more than 4.4 million meals were served to Ohioans visiting shelters and soup kitchens. Because of its longstanding partnership with OPA and Ohio’s egg farmers, OASHF can provide fresh, Ohio-produced eggs that mean hungry Ohio families can have nutritious, wholesome meals. Jim Chakeres, OPA executive vice president, said the egg donation is just one example of how Ohio’s egg farmers give back to their communities. “Ohio’s egg farmers always have been champions in the fight against hunger,” said Chakeres. “We are proud of our 11year partnership with the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks that provides our neighbors in need with safe, highly nutritious eggs.” Ohio farms participating in this year’s donation include Trillium Farms of Croton; Fort Recovery Equity of Fort Recovery; Hemmelgarn & Sons, Inc. of Coldwater; Hertzfeld Poultry Farms of Grand Rapids; Stoller Farms of Van Wert; Weaver Brothers, Inc. of Versailles; Rindler Poultry of St. Henry; and Ross-Medford Farms of New Weston.

COLUMBUS — For the fifth year, the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks (OASHF) and the Ohio Poultry Association (OPA) have joined forces in the fight against hunger as the two organizations partner with Ohio’s egg farmers to provide food to Ohioans in need. Representatives from OASHF and OPA, Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David T. Daniels, as well as egg farmers from across the state, gathered at an event held recently at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank in Grove City to celebrate the milestone 1.5 million-egg donation by Ohio farmers. Eight Ohio egg farmers have committed the 1.5 million eggs to be provided to local hunger through charities OASHF’s network of 12 regional Feeding America foodbanks. The contribution has an estimated retail value of $168,750. Among the eight is Weaver Brothers Inc. of Versailles. “Our partnership with the Ohio Poultry Association and Ohio’s egg farmers is integral in helping us meet our critical mission to provide food to hungry Ohio families,” said Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, OASHF executive director. “This donation from the state’s egg farmers will generously fill an ever-increasing food gap and will provide our clients with wholesome and nutritious meals. We are extremely thankful for our agriculture partners and their continuous support.” According to new research from Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, more than 2 million Ohioans, or 18.1 percent of the state’s

Heat tops Celtics


REPLAY 50 years ago June 11, 1962 Minster trimmed McCartyville 9-3 in a Western Ohio Little League game at Minster Sunday afternoon. McCartyville scored three runs in the first, but Minster came back for four runs in the first and put the game away with four more in the second as Kuehner blasted a three-run homer. Raterman and Kuehner combined to whiff 12 and walk four, while the three McCartyville hurlers Bornhorst, Hoying and Muellenkamp struck out six and walked four

25 years ago June 11, 1987 Even with a tougher schedule, Sidney Zoo women’s softball coach Toby Tyler says this should be his strongest team ever. The squad is dominated by players off Sidney High’s regional finalist squad, including ace pitcher Laura Watkins, who will be starting her third year with the team. And padding the pitching staff is Terry Latimer of Bellefontaine, who was a unanimous all-conference selection this spring and pitched two no-hitters for the Lady Chieftains.

NUMBERS GAME 51 — Hits in May by San Francisco outfielder Melky Cabrera, who batted .429 for the month. It must be a good time to be named Cabrera. Miguel of the Tigers led the American League with 41 hits.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “It’s unbelievable. It’s crazy. It blows your mind. And the really crazy part is that it’s not like he’s really into it. He’s not pushing it. It’s not like his PR machine is trying to do this; it’s just that people gravitate toward him because he is such a good guy. He’s a great guy and they should gravitate to him. It’s a polarizing deal for a lot of people, but he’s not the one pushing it that way.” — New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez on the attention around new teammate Tim Tebow.

ON THIS DATE IN 1898 — Willie Simms becomes the only African American jockey to win the Preakness Stakes when he rides Sly Fox to victory. With this win, Simms becomes the only African American jockey to have won all three Triple Crown races. Simms' other Triple Crown wins took place in the Kentucky Derby (1896, 1898) and Belmont Stakes (1893, 1894). 1919 — Walter Hagen wins the U.S. Open with a one-stroke playoff victory over Michael Brady. 1919 — Sir Barton, ridden by Johnny Loftus, is the first to win thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown, winning the Belmont Stakes. 1921 — Grey Lag, ridden by Earl Sande, wins the first Belmont Stakes ever to be run counterclockwise. Previous Belmonts were run clockwise over a fishhook course that included part of the training track and the main dirt oval. 1955 — Nashua wins the Belmont Stakes with Eddie Arcaro in the saddle. It's the sixth Belmont victory for Arcaro, tying Jimmy McLaughlin's record. 1977 — Seattle Slew, ridden by Jean Cruguet, runs wire to wire in the Belmont for a fourlength victory over Run Dusty Run and the Triple Crown. 1978 — Nancy Lopez shoots a record 13-under par to win the LPGA championship by six strokes over Amy Alcott. 1982 — Larry Holmes stops Gerry Cooney in the 13th round for the WBC heavyweight title at Las Vegas. 1984 — The Boston Celtics beat the Los Angeles Lakers 111102 in Game 7 to win their 15th NBA title.

CLEVELAND INDIANS’ Michael Brantley dives back to first as St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams just misses with the tag in the sixth inning of a baseball game Sunday in St. Louis.

Perez gets save against former team ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chris Perez insisted it was no big deal that his 20th consecutive save came against his old team. The body language begged to differ. The Cleveland Indians closer finished off a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday while battling an upset stomach that left him spitting up fluid between pitches. After getting Adron Chambers on a pop-up with a man on first for the final out, Perez went down to one knee. “I drank some warm water and I ran out there and it just didn’t settle well,” Perez said.

“What am I going to do, call timeout and run into the dugout? “If you remember, a couple years ago in spring training it was the same situation. So I need to stay away from warm water.” Cleveland’s Jason Kipnis hit a tiebreaking three-run homer off closer Jason Motte in the ninth after the Cardinals left the bases loaded in the eighth. Vinnie Pestano (30) walked three straight batters with one out in the eighth but recovered to strike out No. 3 hitter Yadier Molina and cleanup man Allen Craig.

“That’s the game right there,” Kipnis said. “I thought both starting pitchers did a great job and it just came down to who can execute late.” Carlos Beltran homered for the second straight day to increase his National Leagueleading total to 18, and Joe Kelly allowed one run in fiveplus innings in his major league debut for the Cardinals. St. Louis is the only major league team that has not won a series over the Indians, who are 14-6 overall and 8-4 on the road against the Cardinals.

Probes could produce answers BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — The trial of Jerry Sandusky, which will begin Monday when prosecutors and his lawyer make opening statements before a central Pennsylvania jury, will probably be over in a few weeks. But when it comes to getting to the bottom of what happened, it will definitely not be the final word. Testimony in the child sex abuse case will focus on the 52 counts and 10 accusers for which the 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach could, if convicted, spend the rest of his life behind the bars of a state prison. There are many other questions, however, being asked in a number of forums that would have to be answered for the complete story to come to light. First and foremost, the state attorney gen-

eral’s office has repeatedly indicated it has an “active and ongoing” related investigation, and the mere existence of the open investigation suggests additional criminal charges could result. The university has said its president has been in talks with state prosecutors about when he will appear before a grand jury to answer questions, and Penn State disclosed last month that it would cover legal expenses of eight employees who also received subpoenas this year. Citing a gag order, a spokesman for the attorney general declined to comment on the current status of the investigation, which is also obscured by the secrecy rules that govern operation of investigative grand juries in the state.

MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James finally got a Game 7 victory, on his third try. Next up, the NBA finals — and his third try at that elusive first championship. A year after watching someone else celebrate on their home floor, the Miami Heat were the ones dancing at midcourt. James had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Chris Bosh hit a career-best three 3-pointers — the last sparking the run that put it away — and the Heat won their second straight Eastern Conference title by beating the Boston Celtics 101-88 in Game 7 on Saturday night. Miami opens the title series in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. The Heat got there by outscoring Boston 28-15 in the fourth quarter, with the “Big Three” of Dwyane Wade, Bosh and James scoring every Miami point. “We decided to come together and play together for a reason,” Wade said. Wade scored 23 points, Bosh finished with 19 and Shane Battier added 12 for the Heat, who won a Game 7 for the first time since 2004 — Wade’s rookie season. Now it’s back to the finals, where Miami fell in six games to Dallas a year ago. Rajon Rondo finished with 22 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds for Boston, which got 19 points from Paul Pierce in what might be the last game of the “Big Four” era for the Celtics. Boston took out its starters with 28.3 seconds left. By then, workers already had a rope around the perimeter of the court, preparing for the East trophy presentation. “Give them credit,” Rondo said. “They spread the points out as a team tonight. Give them credit. They played great tonight as a team and we just came up short.” When Heat President Pat Riley was shown on the giant overhead video screen in the moments just after the final buzzer, the crowd screamed. Riley finally acknowledged them with some claps, before the 2012 Eastern Conference champions logo was shown as players below the scoreboard high-fived and hugged, all wearing the new T-shirts and caps that marked the accomplishment.

Logano wins at Pocono Raceway BY DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer LONG POND, Pa. (AP) Joey Logano slipped under Mark Martin in the closing laps Sunday at Pocono Raceway for his first victory since 2009 to become the first Sprint Cup driver this season to win from the pole. The 22-year-old Logano rallied past the 53-year-old Martin for a thrilling finish in the first 400-mile Cup race at Pocono. Pocono shortened the race by 100 miles this season. Logano’s only previous career Cup victory was a rainshortened win at New Hampshire. Logano had the top car all weekend, posting the fastest practice time Friday and then taking the pole Saturday. Tony Stewart was third, Jimmie Johnson fourth and Denny Hamlin fifth. Logano, once a much-hyped phenom when he broke in with Joe Gibbs Racing, was under pressure to produce victories in the final year of his four-year contract.

added pressure. But in Victory Lane, he hoped the victory sent a message to his critics. “I hope it shuts them all up,” he said. “It means a whole lot.” At a track known for its tedious 500-mile race, 400 miles was the perfect length to produce a fantastic finish on fresh asphalt on the 2½-mile track. Martin, one of Logano’s earliest supporters, took the lead with eight laps left. Logano, though, bumped Martin out of the way and zipped past for the winning move with three laps remaining. “I’d call that a bump-andrun,” Martin said. “It has been acceptable in this racing for a long time. It’s not how I would have done it. Certainly, had I had a fast enough car, he would have gotten a return.” Martin saw Logano race at 11 years old and raved about his potential as future Cup champion. Logano was so full of promise, he was dubbed “Sliced Bread.” As in, greatest thing since … Logano finished a seasonhigh eighth in the Cup race at Dover last week and now has three top-10s in his last four See LOGANO/Page 12A

Clanton wins Dirt Late Model Dream

TERRY HULL (40) and Kennny Schrader battle for the lead during the Modified feature at Limaland Motorsprts Park Friday night.

Schrader posts modified feature win at Limaland LIMA — Missouri native Ken Schrader, the first man to win races in each of NASCAR’s three major divisions, added a Limaland Motorsports Park victory to his resume, capturing the ultra-competitive 20-lap K&N UMP Modified feature in front of a standing room only crowd. The win came during a special promotion, Meet The Drivers Night, that was highlighted by the appearance of Schrader and fellow big league NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace. Both Schrader and Wallace were participants in various programs with students at the University of Northwestern Ohio earlier in the week At the start, Schrader used his preferred outside front row starting position to storm into the lead, holding off pole starting Terry Hull through the opening lap. Hull, the all-time winningest driver in the division at the track and current championship point’s leader, quickly decided that he wouldn’t be able to pass Schrader at the top of the track, so he hugged the bottom for virtually the entire event. “I tried some things on the bottom, but Kenny (Schrader) was just too good,” said Hull, the eventual race runner-up. The race saw four caution flags which allowed Hull, Kenny Wallace and defending track champion Todd Sherman to engage in some close competitive action, with

Schrader remaining in control at the front of the field. “I’ve raced with Terry (Hull) before and when I realized I was sharing the front row with him, I knew this would become a little rough,” noted Schrader, who ultimately went flag-to-flag in the lead. “I was kind of committed to the top. I popped the front end a couple of times and messed up. The nice part was I knew the fellow I was racing against wasn’t going to run into me. It was a lot of fun and the track was excellent top to bottom.” Both of the other feature races were dominated by Randy Hannagan and Jeff Koz. In each instance it marked a third consecutive win. Hannagan notched his conquest in the Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invaders 25-lap event. He took the lead from pole starter Butch Schroeder on lap number five and was never threatened, despite five caution periods and an eventual white flag restart for the finish. “My guys from Yoakam Motorsports gave me another great race car,” said Hannagan, after his fourth win of the season at the track and sixth in the past two campaigns. The veteran Schroeder was battling former track champion JR Stewart and the two produced a heated sideby-side contest that was settled at the finish line with Stewart, making his 2012 debut, grabbing

the runner-up position behind Hannagan. In the 15-lap Budweiser Thunderstocks feature, Lima’s Jeff Koz took full advantage of his outside front row starting position. He passed pole starter Craig Dippman on lap number two and skillfully held off veteran Tony Anderson through the duration of the event to record his third consecutive win this season and fifth all-time at LiMotorsports maland Park. “Hard to believe I’ve won three in a row,” Koz calmly stated. “My sponsors and team make this possible.” Anderson, still seeking his first win of the season, posted his sixth top 5 finish, while point’s leader Shawn Valenti crossed the finish line in the third position behind Koz and runner-up Anderson. MotorLimaland sports Park returns to action Friday for the 11th Annual Keysor Memorial Race featuring the Budweiser Thunderstocks. The Elwer Fence Sprints and K & N UMP Modifieds will also compete. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6:30 p.m. Racing starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. All the latest news and information about America’s premier quarter-mile dirt track, can be found at Information on the 2012 Limaland Motorsports Park can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Ump part of three no-hitters SEATTLE (AP) — Amid the chaos of the starter leaving with an injury, a two-base throwing error, three walks and five pitching changes, Brian Runge wasn’t paying attention to the history the Seattle Mariners were making. When six Mariners pitchers tossed the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history Friday night, Runge found his own chapter in the annals of baseball umpires. Runge was the home plate umpire for Friday’s no-hitter in the Mariners’ 1-0 win over the Dodgers. And he was behind the

plate April 21 in Seattle when the White Sox’s Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in baseball history. Runge is the first umpire since Drew Coble in 1990 to be behind the plate for two no-hitters in one season. “It’s an amazing story, just to be a part of it and be on the field, but then to be behind the plate both games,” Runge said Sunday before the finale of the Mariners’ series against the Dodgers. “You can’t really write that stuff. It was storybook.” Runge has now been behind the plate for three

LOGANO starts. It could be a sign that things are finally falling into place in his first season with crew chief Jason Ratcliff. Logano has fared much better on the second-tier Nationwide Series. He has 13 career Nationwide wins, four this season, including last week at Dover International Speedway. Martin is all too familiar with his runnerup spot at Pocono. He

no-hitters, the first Jonathan Sanchez’s nohitter for San Francisco on July 10, 2009. Runge is in his 14th major league season and is part of the only three-generation umpiring family in baseball history. His grandfather Ed and his father Paul were both major league umps. And all three have been behind the plate for a no-hitter. During Humber’s perfect game and during Sanchez’s no-hitter, Runge said he didn’t start grasping what was happening until about the eighth inning.

From Page 11A has yet to win in 51 career Cup races at Pocono and has finished second seven times. Logano led a careerhigh 48 laps to become the youngest winner at Pocono. It was his second win in 125 career starts. Matt Kenseth finished seventh and wrested the points lead away from Greg Biffle. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had the dominant car most of the race and finished

seventh. Paul Menard and Jamie McMurray rounded out the top 10. The first repave at Pocono since 1995 produced record speeds in qualifying — 36 cars bettered the previous track record. And they flew on Sunday — just a little too fast on pit road. Drivers were hit with a record Cup number of speeding violations entering or exiting pit road.

ROSSBURG — He had just captured Saturday’s Dirt Late Model Dream presented by Ferris Commercial Mowers at Eldora Speedway in a flawless run, when the question was asked near the end of Shane Clanton press conference — “which win is your favorite, tonight’s Dirt Late Model Dream or the World 100 in 2008?” Clanton started on the outside pole and the Fayetteville, Ga., veteran never relinquished the lead throughout the 100lap event, en route to the $100,000 payday. The win over a field of 98 cars at the two-day event put Clanton in exclusive company. He became the fifth driver to win both the Dream and the World at the famed high-banked, .500 mile speedway joining; Scott Bloomquist, Donnie Moran, Billy Moyer and Jimmy Owens. So, which win is his favorite? “If I said right now I’d say the World because I passed Jimmy Owens for the win. He’s pretty good around this place,” he said. Clanton wasn’t too bad himself. He raced to lead from the pole and was seldom challenged. John Blankenship peeked underneath Clanton in the second turn with 43 laps complete, but that was as close as Clanton came to surrendering the lead. At times he led by a straightaway and was on cruise control with eight laps to go holding a 3.7second advantage over the runner-up Blankenship. He won by 3.149 seconds. Blankenship, who earned $20,000, was followed by Darrell Lanigan, Steve Francis and

Dennis Erb Jr. Clint Smith, Eddie Carrier Jr., Brian Birkhofer, Moyer and Chris Madden rounded out the top 10. “That’s nice and I’ll definitely take it. But $100,000 would’ve been better,” the driver from Williamson, W.Va., said. “It’s a bad race to come up short in. The car was awesome, but Clanton’s was a better,” said little Blankenship, whose best finish prior to Saturday’s race was 8th in 2010. “Kudos to him he ran a great race. I would’ve liked to get up there with him and mixed it up more.” Clanton never gave him a chance. Running in clean air Clanton clicked off the laps in rapid fashion. Three cautions bunched up the field for the new doublefile restarts, but no one had anything for Clanton. Scott Bloomquist, who finished 21st, appeared to take the lead after 23 laps were complete but race officials ruled he jumped the restart. “Scott fired 10 car lengths before we were supposed to,” Clanton said. “(Race officials) were telling the whole time the race leader’s got the race in control. It was my job to start the race, not Scott’s. I wasn’t gonna let him just go and fire with him.” Clanton survived restarts after 44 laps and 66 laps were complete. He followed the back of the pack the final five laps with no need to chance getting taken out in traffic. “I said just stay as far ahead as you can if you hear somebody then you can go. I never heard nobody so I just rode right there behind them,” said

Clanton, who also at times checked Eldora’s big video board in turn 2 to how close Blankenship or anyone else was behind him. “I was just driving, made my laps and wanted the end of the race to hurry up and get there,” Clanton said. “That’s a dream come true. To win it is special, to win the World also, prestige can’t get no bigger than these two races. I had a shot to win in 2010 and a part failure cost us a shot to win then. Everything held together tonight and we came out victorious.” Madden of Gaffney, S.C., won the B-Main and Doug Drown of Wooster, Ohio, won the C-Main. Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., won the B-Scramble and Chris Wall of Holden, La., won the C-Scramble. Both awarded $1,000 to the winner and full UMP DIRTcar points to the field. Klint Byars, Bloomquist, Steve Shaver, Jeep Van Wormer, Clanton and Brian Shirley all earned heat wins. Eldora Speedway returns to action on June 30, with the Chevy PerFASTRAK formance Clash. The FASTRAK Pro Late Models, UMP DIRTcar Modifieds and Eldora Stocks will all be in action and a fireworks display will also highlight the night’s action.

Hill sets Shady Bowl track record DEGRAFF — Shady Bowl Speedway opened its gates for a huge crowd Saturday, as the Main Event Racing Series made its first of two stops this season. The ever popular full-bodied racers are a fan favorite, as the cars are the fastest pavement stocks in the Midwest. It became quite clear early in the evening that the track was quick, as Columbus driver Donnie Hill set a new track record with a 12.314 lap. The time broke the existing track record held by Mike Stacy that was set in 1998. The Hot Rodz 75 feature for the cars was great race for the fans and drivers alike. Don Mahaffey Jr. broke out front at the drop of the green in his Hanger 18 backed racer. The race was red flagged on lap 13 when Shawn Stroble and Donnie Hill made contact on the backchute. The crash eliminated both cars, with both drivers uninjured. When racing resumed Mahaffey took his top running spot with 2011 MERS champion Bud Perry in tow. The run came to an end on lap 42 when Mahaffey and Perry made contact on the frontchute. Mahaffey spun off the track from the contact. The crash also collected Marcus Malcuit and Drew Charleson. All the cars were able to continue with the exception of Malcuit. Officials determined that Mahaffey and Perry

would both restart at the rear of the field on the restart. When the green flew again Michigan driver Jack Varney took over the helm. Varney held the point until lap 62 when Harold Fair took charge. The Milan, Mich., veteran then set sale for the checker in his Royal Truck and Trailer sponsored ride. The second generation driver went on to post his first win of the season. Varney held on for second, with Eric Lee third, Nick Grodi fourth and Jeremy Dennis fifth. The street stocks were also on the racing card. Troy’s Rodney Roush put his M&M Head Service Chevelle in victory lane for the third straight tace. Ricky Young had a strong run to finish second, folllowed by Jason Drummond, Jeff Albright and Chad Brandyberry. Roush set quick time with a 15.149 lap. The dash win went to Albright, with Buck Purtee and Jason Burnside winning heat races. The compact feature saw a new twist as Shady Bowl started a new way for a fan and driver to take home extra bucks. The Hot Rodz Auto Sales Challenge features a pre qualifying ticket draw allows a fan to roll the dice and pick a division. The fan then tries to pick a winner from that class. If he or she succeeds both the driver and fan will receive $500 each. Rick Newell was selected this week, and picked Gary

Eaton from the Tuner class. Eaton won the 20-lap main in his Castles Restaurant Honda. Eaton was chased across the finish line by Kelsey Flynn, Kevin Flynn, Justin Pope and Carroll Nease. Matt Stone paced the field during time trials with a lap of 15.548. Ethan Pope and Jordan Sage notched heat wins. The feature was redflagged in its early stages as Springhills driver Ethan Pope made hard contact with the frontchute wall. The crash destroyed his car and sent him to a local hospital for treatment. Pope, in a Sunday interview, revealed that doctors determined he had a concussion and bruising.

Heat — C Udonis Haslem (5.5 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 0.8 bpg), F Shane Battier (5.7 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 1.4 apg) or Chris Bosh (13.7 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 0.8 apg), F LeBron James (30.8 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 5.1 apg), G Dwyane Wade (22.9 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 4.1 apg), G Mario Chalmers (11.6 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 3.9 apg). Key reserves: Thunder — G James Harden (17.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg), G Derek Fisher (6.5 ppg, 1.4 apg), F/C Nick Collison (3.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg), G Daequan Cook (2.6 ppg, 0.7 rpg), C Nazr Mohammed (2.3 ppg, 2.0 rpg). Heat — F Battier or Bosh, G/F Mike Miller (4.9 ppg, 2.7 rpg), C Joel Anthony (3.4 ppg, 3.4 rpg), G James Jones (2.5 ppg, 0.9 rpg), C Ronny Turiaf (2.1 ppg, 2.7 rpg), G Norris Cole (1.4 ppg, 0.8 apg). Season series: Tied, 1-1. The Thunder forced 21 turnovers and rolled to a 103-87 victory at home on March 25 before the Heat rallied for a 98-93 win in Miami on April 4. Durant averaged 29 points, though committed a career-high nine turnovers while scoring 30 in the second game. Westbrook made just 13 of 42 shots while scoring 20.5 per game, and Ibaka and Harden each scored 19 points in the Thunder's victory, but combined for only 16 in the rematch. James had 34 points in Miami, doubling his total from Oklahoma City, and added 10 assists and seven rebounds. Wade averaged 20.5 points and Bosh added 15 per game. Story line: James and Durant, two of the league's biggest superstars, go head-to-head in search of their first championships. Considered the favorites last year when they fell to Dallas in the first year with James, Wade and Bosh together, the Heat are the underdogs this time against the Thunder, who are poised to reach the top of the NBA despite a core of young players in only their early 20s. Key matchup I: Durant vs. James. James will try to add the finals MVP trophy to the regular-season award he beat out Durant to claim. Whoever's team wins the series earns an advantage in the debate as to who is the best player in the game. Besides everything he has to do offensively, James must use his considerable defensive skills to slow down Durant, who won his third straight scoring title this season. James is the top scorer in the postseason, averaging 30.8 points. Key matchup II: Ibaka vs. Battier and Bosh. Ibaka, the league's leading shot blocker and runner-up for Defensive Player of the Year, has turned into more than just a one-way player. He shot 11 for 11, hitting a number of jumpers, in the Thunder's Game 4 victory over San Antonio that evened the Western Conference finals, and his 55.6 shooting percentage is tops in the playoffs among players who advanced past the first round. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra will have to decide whether to return Bosh to the starting lineup or stay with Battier, and both looked like good choices in Miami's Game 7 victory over Boston. Bosh scored 19 points and made three 3-pointers in his third game back after a nine-game absence because of a lower abdominal injury, while Battier nailed four 3-pointers. X-factor: Perkins. He doesn't have the offensive game of Indiana's Roy Hibbert or the Celtics' Kevin Garnett, centers who have hurt the Heat in this postseason. But Perkins had his best offensive game of the season with 16 points in the Thunder's regular-season victory over the Heat. If he provides any type of scoring in this series, it will cause problems for a Heat team that hasn't been able to settle on and stay committed to a center option all season. Prediction: Thunder in 6.

Write On! We want to hear what you are doing this summer. Are you going someplace that has a lot of history? If so, take some pictures and write and tell us what you experienced.

You have worked hard all school year doing your lessons. Now it’s time for a break and some summer fun! Get out of the house, breath some fresh air, and turn fitness into a lifelong investment. Fitness promotes heathly behaviors, improves self-esteem and wellness. Here are some summer activity ideas for you to enjoy. Newspapers in Education will be working hard the next few months to provide you with new and exciting pages for the upcoming school year. Have a safe and happy summer! Top 5 Reasons Why Physical Activity Is Cool Most people know what physical activity is, but do you know why physical activity is so important? It isn't so you can look all sweaty like people on television commercials for exercise equipment. And it isn't so you can have huge muscles to bust out of your clothes like a superhero, either. Physical activity is important because it keeps people's bodies – and minds – healthy. Without physical activity, we wouldn't feel or look very good. Actually, there are so many reasons why physical activity is good for you, it's time to get right into it and see why it's cool to be fit! Reason # 1: Physical Activity Makes You Feel Good Being active is a most excellent way to feel happy, whether you do it on your own or with a group. If you've had a tough day at school, a fight with your friend, or just feel kind of blue or stressed out, moving your body can help you relax and feel better. Plus,

when you're breathing deeply during physical activity and bringing more air into your lungs, your brain likes the extra oxygen. And when you're active and running around, sometimes it's hard to think about just what was bothering you. Physical activity can make you feel better about yourself, too. When you are stronger and better at doing things, you can feel pretty proud – whether you scored the winning goal or Hula-Hooped for an hour straight! Reason # 2: Physical Activity Helps Keep Your Weight Healthy Every time you eat food, your body does the same thing: it "eats" the nutrients in the food as fuel. It burns these nutrients, or calories, to give us energy. You need calories for all the stuff you do, like brushing your teeth and breathing. So it's important for kids to get all the calories they need from the foods they eat. But if the body isn't able to use all the calories that are coming from food, it stores them away as fat. Physical activity helps keep your weight right for your height by burning up extra calories. When you are active, your body uses that extra fuel to keep you going strong. Reason # 3: Physical Activity Makes Your Heart Happy Your heart is the hardestworking muscle in your body. Its #1 job is to pump blood through your body every day of your life! Since it can't lift weights to get stronger, it needs you to do aerobic exercise. Aerobic is a fancy word for

Fun With Food

needing oxygen, and aerobic exercise is any kind of activity that makes your muscles use oxygen. Aerobic exercise is the kind you do over and over to keep bringing fresh oxygen to all of your muscles. When you do aerobic activity and bring in that oxygen, your heart becomes stronger (and even a tiny bit bigger!). The number of blood cells in your blood increases, so the blood can carry even more oxygen. The blood in your body even moves more easily through the blood vessels. All these things mean that your body works better to keep you healthy, and you can play hard without getting worn out. It's a good idea for kids to do some kind of aerobic activity two or three times a week, for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Bring on the oxygen by swimming, basketball, ice or roller hockey, jogging (or walking fast), in-line skating, soccer, cross-country skiing, biking and rowing. Even dancing, skipping and jumping rope are aerobic activities. Try to move for 60 minutes every day. This can include your favorite aerobic activities and other moves like walking the dog or doing things around the house, like vacuuming, sweeping and raking leaves. You can even reach your 60-minute goal by moving for 10 minutes at a time throughout the day. Go for it! Reason # 4: Physical Activity Makes You Stronger All the muscles in your body do a fine job when you use them for easy stuff, like picking up a book or walking down the stairs. But what about using them for harder stuff, like taking long bike rides, climbing a tree or carrying your backpack to class? That's where activity comes in: it makes your muscles get stronger and

sometimes larger. As your muscles get stronger, you can do more active things for longer periods of time. And strong muscles also help protect you from injuries when you play, because they give better support to your joints (where your bones meet). Building up all different types of muscles is easy to do. For awesome arms, try push-ups, pullups, tug-of-war or twirling a baton. And don't forget the strength of the sea: rowing in a rowboat or canoe is great for building strong arm muscles. For strong leg muscles, try running, blading, skating and bike riding. And for strong stomach muscles (these are the muscles called "abs"–abdomen is a fancy word for the area below your rib cage), try some half situps (with your knees bent and your feet on the floor), bike riding or even swirling a Hula-Hoop around your waist. Now that's fun! Reason # 5: Physical Activity Makes You Flexible Can you touch your toes easily without yelling "ouch"? If so, you're pretty flexible, which means you can bend and stretch your body without too much trouble. But as people get older they tend to get less flexible, so that's why it's important to be active when you're a kid – to stay flexible. Plus, when you're flexible, you can play harder without having to worry about getting sprained and strained muscles. It's easy to find things to do for good flexibility! Tumbling and gymnastics are great ways to become more flexible. And say "yes" to yoga. Don't forget dancing, especially ballet. And for fans of karate, tae kwon do and other martial arts, you're in luck: these sports are great for flexibility, you'll be feeling fine and having fun!

You've heard it at least a million times — eat your fruits and veggies! After all, they're packed with lots of good-for-you vitamins, minerals and fiber. To look good and feel good, you need to eat at least 2 ½ cups of veggies and 1 ½ cups of fruits every day (that's if you eat 1,800 calories a day — your amounts could be different if you eat a different number of calories). Don't worry — you don't have to eat a cup at a time! Eating smaller bits of fruits and veggies throughout the day counts toward your total. And you might be amazed at how fruits and veggies are in lots of other foods you eat (think vegetable soup or veggie-topped pizza, even)! If your usual fruit and veggie total isn't measuring up — or if your usual selections seem ho-hum, try these totally weird but tasty ways to (fruit and) veg out today! Pick out something funny sounding. Like kohlrabi … or cardoon … or carambola — the first two are veggies and the second one's a fruit! Go grocery shopping with your parents and ask them to buy the funniest sounding fruit or veggie you can find. Taste-test it with your family when you get home. Bite into a PBB, PBA, PBR or PBC sandwich. Instead of jelly, that's peanut butter with sliced bananas, sliced apples, raisins or shredded carrots. Chill out with a frozen fruit bar. Ask your parents to get the kind made with 100 percent fruit juice. Create a different kind of crunch. Pile your sandwich with sliced cucumber, arugula, radishes, celery, red pepper or water chestnuts. Order a pineapple-topped pizza. If fruity pizza is not your thing, load it with veggies like green peppers, mushroom, onions and tomatoes. Escape with a frozen grape. Take some grapes off the stem, wash and dry them, put them in a bowl or a sealed plastic baggie and pop them into the freezer for an hour or so. A real cool treat! Create a patriotic yogurt. Stir blueberries and chopped up strawberries into vanilla yogurt.

Summer Back Yard Scavenger Hunt • Identify Your Teams Divide the kids into teams and have them select a name for their team. • Select The Area For The Hunt To Take Place You will want to select boundaries and keep the area limited. Use caution tape to create the boundaries. Hide the items within the boundaries. Make sure the lighting is adequate. You can use indoors or outdoors. • Bags Are Required Decorated bags should be given to each child. This will help them to navigate and keep organized. • Prizes Make It Fun Select prizes for each team. Even if it is just a certificate of accomplishment. 1. Find something green 2. Get the signature and favorite food of an adult. 3. Find a stick longer than 1 foot. 4. Gather three different types of leaves. 5. Find a rock that is bigger than a quarter. 6. Find something prickly. 7. What is the make/model and color of the car the owner of the house drives? 8. How many doors does the house have? 9. Do 10 jumping jacks in front of an adult and have the put a * on your paper 10. Find a flower 11. How many bikes are in the garage? 12. What color is the house? 13. Find something that will float. 14. How many people live in this house? 15. Find something soft. 16. Find something that you can recycle. 17. List how many things you can find that are blue. 18. Find something that can be filled with water.

Mash up some color. Instead of regular mashed potatoes, ask Mom or Dad to make some mashed sweet potatoes. They're orange, smooth and oh-so-sweet!

The Ghost in the Courthouse Statue

"I see how having this information has motivated you," he said. "Would you like to know more, my leetle friend?" "I'm not sure," I said. "There is a reason I still live in ze statue and wander around ze courthouse after all these years," he said, drawing on his pipe. "When one of ze Matlock brothers keeled me, it was three against one. I had written an editorial, calling them 'lilly-livered blackguards.' We wrote more colorfully in those days. I felt these outlaws had terrorized Jefferson for long enough, with their plundering and keeling. Something had to be done. Eef ze sheriff was afraid to do something about them, I would take matters into my own hands. "So I met them in a shootout. I was standing right where ze statue is today. Two of them died at my hand. But one - ze dirtiest, lowest, most cowardly coward of them all - William Matlock, sneaked around and shot me in ze back. Since I did not rid ze town of these vermin, his offspring have perpetrated many crimes through ze years against the fine citizens of Jefferson. Bad blood all the way down ze line. Today his great-great-greatgrandson ees Sheriff Matlock. So you see, I have unfinished business." "Fine," I said, "but what's it got to do with me?" "Everything, mon ami," he said. "According to ze rules governing ghostly matters, I must enlist the services of a living person to assist me. That would be you." At last, Felix's weird afterlife behavior was

starting to make sense. But there was one thing I didn't understand. "Okay, I get that you can't meddle too much in our world, or you'll be stuffed back inside the statue. And I also get that you have to use a real person to help you take on the sheriff," I said. "But what I don't get is why you picked me? I'm just a kid." Felix smiled. "Eet ees no coincidence that you are ze only human who can hear or see me. I can only rid ze town of a Matlock heir through the help of my own heir. And theese heir must speak to me before I can speak to him. It ees a cosmic principle of justice." "And since I'm descended from you... and spoke to you..." I said. "Tag - you're eet," he said. "I'm it?" I said. "Don't I get a say-so in this?" "You're ze only one who fits ze cosmic criteria," he said. "Ze only one who can save your mother and ze nincompoop editor. But eef you'd rather let them be keeled...." "No, no, I'll do it," I said. "Fantastique! Because I have already hatched ze plan," Felix said. When Felix said 'hatched,' it made me remember my eggheaded friend. He was still where I had hidden him. I reached down and retrieved Humpty from under the gazebo bench. He might be helpful later, but for now, I decided I'd take him to the back office of The Times. He could hang out with my other puppets and stuffed animals, while Felix and I went to work - getting the bad guys. "I must warn you. Ze plan ees dangerous," said Felix. "I don't care. I'd do anything to save Mom," I said. "In that case, mon ami, we will do it together!"

"Who do you think made the turnip say that, Miss Sawdust-For-Brains?" asked Clint. Judge Roberts sprang to her feet. "That does it. Sheriff, are you going to sit there and let him talk to a lady like that?" "A lady! Where is she?" Clint said, pretending to search for one. "Clint, quit your agitatin'. Now!" Sheriff Matlock hollered. "You're gettin' on my last nerve." He motioned for Judge Roberts to sit down. Clint looked at his feet like a whipped puppy. After a pause, he said something I never saw coming. "What if this Jake fella figures out we killed old youknow-who?" Judge Roberts gulped and flung a dramatic hand to her forehead. "Oh my gosh! You don't think he could be onto us, do you?" Moving your body by running, jumping, walking and playing gives Seeing he had stirred up Judge Roberts, Clint smiled and rubbed it in. you energy, makes your muscles stronger and helps you feel "It wouldn't surprise me if he's got us in good about yourself. Moving for 60 minutes every day is a great his crosshairs - especially with Holly goal. But don't worry if that seems like too much to do at one talking in his ear." The sheriff puffed on his cigar.

STORY SO FAR: After Donnie meets Felix's ghost, they spy on Sheriff Matlock and his "posse" - Clint Ratchett and Judge Lulu Roberts. Donnie laughs out loud after Clint's toupée is mistaken for a rat. The noise alerts the crooked threesome, who rush to the window to find the source of the sound. I sat there on the tree limb frozen with fear, as the flashlight beam climbed toward me. With the circle of light only a few feet below my shoes, I leapt to a limb on the other side of the tree and hid behind the trunk. Just in time. A second later, the flashlight shone on the spot where I'd been. It lit up an empty fork in the tree trunk. "Tain't nuthin' but a squirrel," the sheriff said. "Prob'ly got annoyed by all the ruckus y'all was raisin'." "You sure it's not a rat?" Clint asked with a wicked gleam in his eye. "Oh my gosh! Not again!" Judge Roberts squealed, leaping back from the window. "Just funnin' with ya, Judge." Clint laughed. She swung her purse, clobbering him in the head and straightening him up. "You shouldn't play tricks on folks with phobias. You could cause severe psychological damage!" "Will you two idiots please shut up?!" the sheriff barked. He glared at them as he sat back down at his desk. Judge Roberts sniffed, "Well, I don't appreciate being treated in such a manner." "Put a lid on it, your honor," the sheriff growled, chomping hard on his cigar. "I ain't got time for your nonsense tonight." Seated next to me on the tree limb, Felix leaned over and said, "Judge Roberts ees as dumb as ze post." "A real airhead, huh?" I said. "Arrow head?" he asked. "Airhead," I said. "Nothing inside her head but air." "Ah! Now I get eet Donnie," he laughed. "Oui, oui. Much air - leetle brains." I focused my new powers of observation on Lulu Roberts. This dark-haired woman was pretty, but ditzy. She had a blank, far-away look in her eyes like nobody was home. Also, she was kind of a drama queen, making big gestures with her hands whenever she spoke. The sheriff said, "This Jake Passmore is really something else, with those talkin' turnips, space aliens, and such. I'm not sure what to make of him." "If you ask me, he's about three bricks shy of a load," said Clint. "I don't think he's shy," said Judge Roberts. "You should've seen how he flirted with me when I met him the other day." Charlie rolled his eyes. "I didn't mean he was shy." "Then say what you mean," Judge Roberts snipped. "Maybe it's turned out for the best," said the sheriff. "Long as this new editor's sidetracked with his crazy stories, he ain't watching us." "What makes you so sure, boss?" Clint asked. "Didn't that turnip say that the crooks around here were involved in kickbacks and bribes? Sounded like he was talking about us." "I wouldn't worry too much about anything a turnip says," Judge Roberts said.

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.
