Emerald ash borer continues its attack BY DOUGLAS BENSON Shelby County Master Gardeners About this time last year the presence of the emerald ash borer (EAB) in Shelby County was confirmed by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. Since then articles have been written, a public information session was held, informational packets have been produced, the city of Sidney and Lake Loramie State Park have removed some ash trees, and homeowners have begun to take steps to remove or preserve some of their trees. At the same time EAB has been increasing in number and killing more trees. Where are some of the known infestations? Many of

the ash trees along Fair Road between the fairgrounds and the interstate show signs of infestation, as do many of the ash trees in the Gleason Street-Stolle Drive area. Arrowhead Golf Course near Minster has many infested trees; and, of course, Lake Loramie State Park is widely affected. At least one homeowner in Botkins has an infested tree, and every one of the 26 ash trees in the Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Botkins is infested. A residence on McClure Road has at least one infested tree. At my own home near Russell and Kuther roads, I have watched adult EABs mating and laying eggs on a nearly dead ash tree. The history of See EMERALD/Page 4A

The photo on the left was taken July 10, 2011, while the one on the right was taken June 13. The tree is infested with the emerald ash borer and by the next summer, the top part of the tree could be totally dead.

FAIR display stand; and last year it was a buckeye jug. This year’s piece is a handsome 11-inch vase. The vase, in keeping with the collectible series, features a handpainted state of Ohio buckeye five-leaf cluster surrounding a buckeye nut in the center. The piece is also decorated with scarlet and gray accents in keeping the Ohio motif. The I-75 Daily Newspaper Group has again commissioned Heritage Stoneware of Crooksville in southeast Ohio to design, mold and fire the pieces. Each handpainted vase will be individually numbered and signed by the artist. This year the piece carries a value of more than $50, but subscribers will receive one free with each new or renewal full-year subscription while supplies last. They will only be available at the newspaper’s booth in the merchants building at the fair. “We had overwhelming responses during the past four years,” said Betty Brownlee, SDN circulation manager, noting that supwere quickly plies exhausted. “This year we increased the number of pieces ordered by 100, for a total of 700 to be divided equally among the three I-75 daily newspapers (Sidney, Piqua Daily Call and Troy Daily News), but we know they will not last,” she added. Collectors are encouraged to visit the newspaper’s booth during the opening days of the fair before supplies run out. Each vase will be placed in a canvas tote bag. When the supply of vases is depleted, those who renew or take out new subscriptions at the fair will still receive a free bag. Special fair subscription rates will continue throughout the course of the fair, even after all vases have been “awarded” to subscribers. Due to the immediate investment in this piece of artwork, subscriptions are nonrefundable, but can be transferred to another

Fun scavenger game offers prizes at fair Anyone 18 years of age or older who visits the Sidney Daily News booth at this year’s Shelby County Fair will have an opportunity to take part in a fun game and possibly win some prizes in the process. The newspaper will be sponsoring a scavenger hunt game called “Photo Fair-For-All.” Visitors to the SDN booth may pick up a new form each day that features five photos of objects and/or places on the fairgrounds. Participants must identify each item and return the form to the booth, along with their name, phone number and email address. A different entry form with five different photos will be featured each day of the fair. A winner will be drawn each day and a prize awarded. Only entries with the correct answers may win, however. All entries will also be included in a grand prize drawing to be held at the end of the fair, with a flat screen television as the prize. The TV is offered courtesy of Flint’s TV & Appliances of Sidney. local resident. “Ohio has a rich pottery tradition and we’re glad that we can for the fifth year offer a piece of our state’s long-valued heritage,” said Jeff Billiel, Sidney Daily News publisher. “We know a number of people have maintained collections of the pieces and this year’s offering will be a nice addition. The vase is large and heavy and will be ideal for both decorative and practical purposes.” Now in its seventh year, Heritage Stoneware has a national reputation in the pottery business. Its pottery artists have accumulated more than 100 years in this creative trade. Pottery, Alpine which had been owned and operated by Lee and Debbie Ungemach for many years, was acquired by Heritage Stoneware, changing the name in 2005. The Ungemach family has been associated with the pottery and ceramic industry in the Roseville-Crooksville area for more than 75 years. Lee and Debbie are third-generation potters. A few years ago Heritage Stoneware moved the business from the old Alpine plant in Roseville to its current facility in Crooksville. Due to rich clay deposits, the southeastern Ohio area has a long pottery history, dating back long before

Ohio became a state. “No two pieces are exactly alike,” said Frank L. Beeson, group publisher of the I-75 Newspapers. “Since every piece is handpainted, all the designs might be similar, but each has its own look … its own character.” Special Shelby County Fair rates are one-year, $130, and for seniors (65 proof of age required), $110. Subscribers may also six-month purchase new or renewal subscriptions for $78, or $70 for seniors. Sixmonth subscriptions are refundable; however, a transaction fee will be applied. Due to the cost of producing the special pottery pieces, six-month subscriptions will not include the premium offers. Subscriptions must be purchased at the fair in order to receive the special pricing and the collectible premium offer. The Sidney Daily News is published Monday and Wednesday through Saturday, 52 weeks per year. Local news is posted on the newspaper’s website on Tuesdays, even though there is no publication that day. Many rural routes are now delivered via the U.S. Postal Service with same-day delivery. Many Sidney city route deliveries are managed by youth and adult carriers.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, June 23, 2012



From Page 1 The report noted that in the case of Van Fossen, Logan County Sheriff ’s Deputy Tom Meek had looked her up on OHLEG “after meeting her somewhere in the Logan County area, which prompted Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel to question Van Fossen as to why.” The BCI report reads: “Meek states that Van Fossen had approached him while he was doing special duty at a bar called Froggy’s in the Indian Lake area. He states Van Fossen appeared to be intoxicated and told him that she was a Shelby County Deputy. Meek states he ran her through OHLEG and showed her picture to his immediate supervisor to see if he knew of her.” Meek reportedly told the BCI agent that “he suspected that Van Fossen was possibly an informant who was representing herself as a deputy. He later learned she actually was a deputy when she informed him at the same bar a couple weeks later that she got questioned by Kimpel as to why he had ran her through the system.” Meek told BCI he was questioned and made a statement to Licking County detectives who were conducting an internal investigation into Van Fossen’s claims of sexual harrassment by Kimpel. Kimpel “readily admits that he ran Van Fossen (through OHLEG) in August 2010 to obtain her numeric address so he could send her flowers,” the report states. “He states that Van Fossen had been distraught and off work, and he did the gesture to try and cheer her up.” Kimpel gave the BCI agent “no explanation” for why he ran Cami

Frey, one of his employees. “He advised he didn’t remember, but stated that he probably needed her (Social Security number) so that he could fill out paperwork to send her to school.” However, Frey told investigators “she is assigned to the Dog Warden duties at the Sheriff ’s Office and states that she is unsure as to why the Sheriff would have ran her name.” Frey told the agent “she has never, to her knowledge, attended a school that the sheriff filled out the paperwork for. She states, as did Van Fossen, that the sheriff might hand a deputy a registration form, however it is the deputy’s responsibility to fill out the required paperwork.” The agent noted in the report that “Kimpel ran Frey after he ran Van Fossen and discovered that a Logan County Deputy made an OHLEG inquiry on her. Van Fossen, in a recorded conversation with the sheriff, advised him that both she and Frey had met the deputy when they went to Logan County and had dinner together.” The report states that Kimpel told BCI that Gordon was “simply an acquaintance of his and that he had ran her through OHLEG because he was checking to see if she had a driver’s license and another time because he was checking to see if she had any warrants.” When the BCI agent questioned Kimpel about why he ran Gordon seven times, “he could provide no explanation.” But the report states, Kimpel “did admit that they (he and Gordon) had gone out before within a group setting and that she was an exotic dancer.”

From Page 1 are cover sprays, and several are actually injected into the trees. Most require annual treatments; but one, emamectin benzoate, also known as Treeage, is injected into the tree and has proven effective for two years. Uniexperts versity recommend seeking a professional to treat trees greater than 15 inches in diameter (47 inches in circumference) because of the quantity of chemicals needed. If you plan to hire a professional, we recommend looking for an ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified person, one who has committed to being highly trained in tree care. Also solicit several bids to be sure you are not paying too much. Pricing is normally based on the size of the tree and the chemical being used. The applicator should be very upfront in providing information to you. Once you know the cost, then you can make your decision – treat, remove, or do nothing. Treating will entail an ongoing expense. Removal may involve significant costs, so get bids and check out references. Also, be sure you know how the debris will be removed legally. If you do nothing, you might get lucky. On the other hand, if the tree becomes infested, and you do nothing, chances are good that the tree will die in three to five years. As a general rule, removing a live tree is cheaper than removing a dead tree. Perhaps you might start a replacement tree just in case.

Those women were: • Former Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy Jodi Van Fossen, who alleged that Kimpel sexually assaulted her at her in Auglaize home County. A charge of sexual battery in that case was later dismissed. Kimpel looked her up on Aug. 9, 2010. • Shelby County Sheriff ’s Deputy Cami Frey, who Kimpel looked up around Aug. 10, 2010. • Dawn Robinson, 153 Diane Lane North, Fairborn, who Kimpel looked up around Nov. 4, 2010. • Angela Gordon, formerly of Sidney and now reportedly living in Prestonsburg, Ky., who Kimpel looked up on approximately seven different occasions in 2010 and 2011. All of the women were looked up using Kimpel’s Sheriff ’s Office computer, except for Robinson, whom Kimpel looked up from his home computer. According to the BCI report, Special Agent Todd Brown spoke with Robinson about Kimpel looking her up. Brown states that “upon further investigation, into the reason Kimpel ran (Robinson) through the OHLEG system, it was learned that a female … had come to the sheriff’s office and met privately with Kimpel. Kimpel then ran the vehicle tag in an effort to know the name of and/or the address of the female.” The registration came back to Robinson. Robinson told BCI that “to her knowledge she has never been to Shelby County and that although the vehicle was registered to her, it was not her who met with … Kimpel.” BCI learned later that it was Robinson’s sister, Kaitlin Robinson, who was using Dawn’s car to go see Kimpel. The report states that Kaitlin met with BCI and told the agent she is “an exotic dancer in Dayton and had befriended Kimpel, who was a patron” of her club. Kaitlin told the agent she “never told Kimpel her real name; however, he had told her he was the sheriff in Shelby County.” “Robinson states that she knew Kimpel for approximately one year and on two different occasions made up stories as to why she needed money. She states that in both instances, Kimpel offered to provide the funds and that she went to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, where he would give the money to her. She states the first time she went there he provided her with $2,500 and the second time he gave her $1,000 to $1,500.” “Robinson states that on both occasions she had borrowed her sister’s vehicle and he (Kimpel) either ran the vehicle plate while it was at the Sheriff ’s Office or that he had seen her arrive or depart from her club. Robinson states that she was never intimate with Kimpel and was simply trying to get money from him to support her financial needs,” the report stated. The Sheriff ’s Office has a copy of a video of Robinson during a visit to see Kimpel. At the time, Kimpel had claimed she was a law student who needed help with a term paper.

Grain dryer catches fire at Cargill Cargill Inc. personnel are investigating the cause of a grain dryer fire that sent Sidney firefighters to the food and agricultural processing company’s local plant late Thursday night. Sidney Fire Chief Brad Jones said firefighters, dispatched to the Cargill complex at 2400 Industrial Drive at 11:30 p.m., discovered a fire in the first floor of a dryer tower used in the processing of soybeans. All off-duty personnel were recalled to assist and

the Anna Fire Department’s heavy rescue and engine units assisted at the scene. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the first floor area of the dryer, assisted by Cargill maintenance personnel. Fire crews remained on the scene about three hours to ensure flamed had not extended to upper floor levels of the dryer. No injuries were reported. Cause of the fire and damages are yet to be determined, Jones said Friday.

State preps first casino cheating cases from 2 sites BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — The early odds of catching a suspected cheat at Ohio’s two new casinos are about one every other day. The Cleveland casino has been open almost six weeks and the Toledo casino more than three weeks. In that time, 15 to 25 suspected cheaters and others involved in gambling related offenses have been investigated, according to Karen Huey, head of enforcement for the Ohio Casino Control Commission. Matt Schuler, executive director of the commission, said Friday that the cases would be turned over to prosecutors in Cleveland and Toledo for possible prosecution. “We have investigations under way at both casinos on cheating activity,” he said. “Up until charges are filed and the investigations are still under way, we can’t go into any detail.” By law, cheating includes using phony chips, falsely claiming winnings without betting or having a device that can affect a game’s outcome. First-time offenders of the state’s casino law can face felony charges and up to a year in prison and a $2,500 fine.

IN THIS May 14 file photo, security guards and police patrol the entrance to the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland. The early odds of catching a suspected cheat at Ohio’s two new casinos are about one every other day. The Cleveland casino has been open almost six weeks and the Toledo casino more than three weeks. In that time, 15 to 25 suspected cheaters and others involved in gambling related offenses have been investigated, according to Karen Huey, head of enforcement for the Ohio Casino Control Commission. Agents have worked about 80 cases in all, including disorderly conduct accusations and compulsive gamblers who signed up for a voluntary exclusion list but showed up at a casino

anyway. Twenty-seven people have signed up for the exclusion list, Schuler said. Casino employees are trained to watch for gamblers who have signed up for one-year, five-year or

Bomb plot suspect seeking to exclude threat BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — One of five suspects charged with plotting to bomb an Ohio highway bridge wants to exclude trial evidence that he threatened to bomb his seventh-grade principal. Information about the alleged threat by Douglas Wright, 26, of Indianapolis, when he was 12 years old would prejudice the jury, his attorney, Anthony Vegh, told the judge in a court filing. U.S. District Court Judge David Dowd told attorneys Thursday that he would take up the

issue next month. All five men have pleaded not guilty. They allegedly tried to detonate what turned out to be a dud bomb provided by an informant. Brief details of the alleged school threat were included in a transcript of the FBI’s interview of Wright. He told the FBI agent he never carried through on the threat and no bomb materials were found. “Not even one single component of a pipe bomb or stuff,” Wright told the agent. Wright told the agent that he wound up in juvenile court over the threat.

lifetime exclusions. A supervisor, a lead investigator and 10 state agents, armed and working in plainclothes, are assigned to each casino and have enforcement power on the casino floor, Schuler said. “An individual may or may not know that they could be sitting next to a gaming agent or sitting across from them,” Schuler said. In Cleveland, the casino also has private security guards and offduty police officers for islike drunken sues patrons, plus more than 1,000 security cameras, according to police Chief Michael McGrath. Casino Horseshoe Cleveland opened May 14 in a renovated department store. It was developed by Rock Gaming, led by NBA Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, and Caesars Entertainment, which is managing dayto-day operations. The partnership also is developing a casino in Cincinnati. The casino expects 5 million visitors a year. The $320 million Hollywood Casino in Toledo opened May 29 and is run by Penn National Gaming Inc. based in Wyomissing, Pa. It’s also constructing a casino in Columbus that is expected to open in the fall. Ohio voters in 2009 approved casino gambling at the four sites with backers promising new jobs and opponents warning about more gambling addicts and crime issues.

Prisons director removes 2 from Ohio Parole Board COLUMBUS (AP) — The state prisons chief has removed two of the nine members of the Ohio Parole Board. The Dayton Daily N e w s ( ) reports Director Gary Mohr removed Cathy Collins-Taylor and Jose Torres from the board this week without much explanation. A spokeswoman said only that Mohr is making changes to improve the prisons system and is looking to find “the right people for the right positions.” The board considers the possible release of

thousands of inmates. Ohio’s parole rate was 6.9 percent last year, down from about 26 percent in 2001 and more than 48 percent in 2004. The board also reviews clemency requests from condemned inmates. The members who were removed had participated in the most recent clemency decision, with one in favor of mercy and the other against it. ___ Information from: Dayton Daily News,

Ohio to use $12M federal grant for online job help DAYTON (AP) — Ohio plans to offer online career counseling, job information and training that people can access any time. A $12 million federal grant will pay for expansion of the OhioMeansJobs website that connects unemployed residents with job openings across the state. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says the site will grow from being a job and resume database into a full-service career help site.

Officials say the online access will appeal to people, especially younger ones, who would rather access services online than go to brick-and-mortar offices. The Dayton Daily News says the state agency was one of two workforce groups that got the top grant amount from the U.S. Department of Labor. ___ Information from: Dayton Daily News,

An FBI spokeswoman said no other details on the threat were immediately available. Earlier in the week, Vegh asked the judge to try Wright separately and have the trial outside northeast Ohio, where the men allegedly considered blowing up various high-profile targets. Vegh said the other defendants have fingered Wright as an instigator. Authorities have called the men anarchists, and investigators say the group planted what turned out to be a dud bomb provided by an FBI undercover informant on a bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron.

Columbus bus drivers’ union files intent to strike COLUMBUS (AP) — The union representing drivers and mechanics for the Columbus bus system have filed a 10day notice of an intent to go on strike. The filing follows months of negotiations that led to agreements on almost all contract provisions, with disagreements continuing over pension contributions and different wage scales for new employees. Regular bus service would stop in Columbus if the strike takes place but services for people with disabilities and those with chronic medical conditions would continue. Transport Workers Union Local 208 filed the notice Thursday about the potential strike, which would begin July 2.

Agent: Chemicals found in Saudi man’s apartment


‘All our kids’ LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — President Barack Obama, in a strikingly personal appeal, renewed his call for an overhaul of America’s immigration laws before a supportive Latino audience Friday. He portrayed rival Mitt Romney as an obstacle to measures that would give young illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. “These are all our kids,” he declared. To a standing ovation, Obama spoke of his directive last week that immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children be exempted from deportation and granted work permits if they applied. Reflecting on his own life as the first AfricanAmerican president, he said: “When I meet these young people, all throughout communities, I see myself. Who knows what they might achieve? I see my daughters, and my nieces, and my nephews.”

Jet shot down ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Syria said Friday it shot down a Turkish military plane that entered Syrian air space, and Turkey vowed to “determinedly take necessary steps” in response. It was the most clear and dramatic escalation in tensions between the two countries, which used to be allies before the Syrian revolt began in March 2011. Turkey has become one of the strongest critics of the Syrian regime’s brutal response to the country’s uprising. Late Friday, Syria’s state-run news agency, SANA, said the military spotted an “unidentified aerial target” that was flying at a low altitude and at a high speed. “The Syrian anti-air defenses counteracted with anti-aircraft artillery, hitting it directly,” SANA said. “The target turned out to be a Turkish military plane that entered Syrian airspace and was dealt with according to laws observed in such cases.” Turkey issued a statement Friday night following a two-hour security meeting led by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, saying Syrian forces downed the plane and that the two Turkish pilots remain missing.

OUT OF THE BLUE Inmates to test new locks at Atlanta jail ATLANTA (AP) — Jailers in Atlanta have a challenge for inmates: Get past the new locks being tested on cell doors and win free food. Officials have been trying to figure out what to do about hundreds of locks which can be jammed at the Fulton County Jail, allowing inmates to get to each other. Fulton County’s chief jailer, Col. Mark Adger, tells WSB-TV he’s offering free food for any inmate who can defeat the new locks being tested in one cell block. Adger says jailers are choosing experienced lock beaters, to try to beat the new locks. County Commissioner Tom Lowe has said the lock issue has been blown out of proportion, but others say it puts inmates at risk of being attacked by other prisoners.

EMERGENCY RESPONDERS work on a wild land fire that is threatening homes in Saratoga Springs, Utah, Friday. At least 2,300 homes were evacuated after high winds kicked up a fire near a northern Utah dump. Fire officials were calling in additional aircraft to fight the fastmoving fire near Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain. At one point, the fire threatened an explosives factory.

Fire sparked by shooting empties homes in Utah BY LYNN DEBRUIN Associated Press SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (AP) — Residents of at least 2,300 homes in northern Utah were being evacuated Friday after high winds kicked up a fire started by target shooters. The roughly 4,000-acre blaze, or about 6.25 square miles, started Thursday near the Saratoga Springs landfill, about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City. High winds then helped fan the flames onto tinder-dry grasslands. Authorities were initially worried as flames moved toward property owned by an explosives company. But as winds kicked up, the fire began moving toward Saratoga Springs, and crews began focusing on saving homes. Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Teresa Rigby said the 2,300 houses evacuated include residents who voluntarily left, along with those ordered to leave. On Friday, fire officials were calling in additional aircraft and extra ground crews. BLM officials say they believe the blaze was caused when a bullet hit a rock and sparked the fire. This is the 20th target-shooting related fire this year in Utah, they said. One firefighter had suf-

fered minor burns, and no structural damage had been reported, said Jason Curry, a spokesman for the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands. Utah County Sheriff Jim Tracy said he feared the fire could take down the area’s power grid, shutting off electricity to up to 7,000 homes. “Several power poles and transformers … up and down the fire lines have burned,” Tracy said Friday evening. “If the fire gets a couple more critical poles and drops that grid, wires down on the ground, it will black out this entire area.” A continued mix of hot, windy and extremely dry conditions has raised the fire danger across Utah and parts of Wyoming, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado. At a wildfire burning on over 68,000 acres in northern Colorado, some homes were being evacuated Friday because of several spot fires started by winds outside the main fire. Some of those residents were evacuated after the fire flared up on Sunday and had only returned home Wednesday. The mix of conditions that makes it easy for new fires to start and spread and cause existing fires to flare up is expected to last through Saturday there. The fire west of Fort Collins

has now destroyed at least 191 homes. It’s also blamed for the death of a woman found dead at her ranch. Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office said Friday that the governor has signed executive orders releasing $6.2 million more in state disaster money to fight the fire and two others. The northern Colorado fire will have $5 million more available, on top of $20 million made available by a previous order. The fire has qualified for 75 percent federal reimbursement for firefighting costs, Hickenlooper’s office said. A fire near Lake George will get $1 million, and the Stuart Hole fire in Larimer County will receive $200,000. The disaster money is coming partly from reserve funds. Meanwhile, the Village People will perform a free concert Saturday in Ignacio, Colo., to raise money for relief efforts at smaller wildfires in Colorado and New Mexico, The Farmington Daily-Times re( ported. Those attending the show at the Sky Ute Casino will be asked to give cash donations to help relief efforts at a wildfire that’s been burning for over a month near Pagosa Springs and a blaze along the San Juan River that destroyed three structures in far northwestern New Mexico.

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — Federal agents who searched the Texas apartment of a Saudi man accused of gathering materials to make a bomb found sulfuric acid and nitric acid, among other things, an FBI agent testified Friday. During the first day of testimony in the trial of Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, Special Agent Aaron Covey walked jurors through the 22-year-old former chemical engineering student’s apartment in West Texas using photos taken hours after Aldawsari’s Feb. 23, 2011, arrest. Prosecutors contend Aldawsari gathered bomb components with the goal of targeting sites across the U.S. Prosecutors presented more than 80 exhibits Friday, many of them photos that gave jurors a first look at Aldawsari’s sparsely furnished apartment near Texas Tech University. In addition to the bottles of sulfuric and nitric acids, prosecutors showed photos of cellphones, Christmas lights, journals and notebooks, a laptop computer, wiring, a stun gun, a hazmat suit and a baby scale. Aldawsari faces up to life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. Investigators say the targets he researched included the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush, dams and nuclear plants. Defense attorney Dan Cogdell argued that though Aldawsari had intent, he never took a “substantial step” to make or use a bomb. Under cross-examination, Covey confirmed that none of the bottles of sulfuric and nitric acid had been opened. Cogdell also asked Covey about a third chemical Aldawsari allegedly had tried to obtain to make a bomb.

Monsignor convicted for abuse cover-up BY MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Roman Catholic church official was convicted of child endangerment but acquitted of conspiracy Friday in a landmark clergy-abuse trial, making him the first U.S. church official branded a felon for covering up abuse claims. Monsignor William Lynn helped the archdiocese keep predators in ministry, and the public in the dark, by telling parishes their priests were being removed for health reasons and then sending the men to unsuspecting churches, prosecutors said. Lynn, 61, served as secretary for clergy from 1992 to 2004, mostly under Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua. “Many in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia hierarchy had dirty hands,” Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said. “They failed to

realize that the church is its people.” Williams said he did not have sufficient evidence last year to charge other officials, including Bevilacqua, who died in January at age 88. Lynn had faced about 10 to 20 years in prison if convicted of all three counts he faced — conspiracy and two counts of child endangerment. He was convicted of only a single endangerment count, which carries a possible 3 1/2- to seven-year prison term. The jury could not reach a verdict for Lynn’s co-defendant, the Rev. James Brennan, who was accused of sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy in 1999. Despite Lynn’s acquittal on the conspiracy charge, the trial exposed how deeply involved the late cardinal was in dealing with accused priests. Bevilacqua had the final say on what to do with priests accused of abuse, transferred many of them to new parishes

and dressed down anyone who complained, according to testimony. He also ordered the shredding of a 1994 list that Lynn prepared, warning that the archdiocese had three diagnosed pedophiles, a dozen confirmed predators and another 20 possible abusers in its midst. Church lawyers turned over a surviving copy of the list days after Bevilacqua died. Lynn didn’t react when the verdict was read, or acknowledge the siblings and other friends and relatives who have accompanied him to court for much of the threemonth trial. Several of them were weeping. The judge revoked his bail and he was taken to jail, although his lawyers plan to ask on Monday that he be granted house arrest until sentencing. No date was set, but the judge scheduled an Aug. 13 presentencing hearing.

The defense also pledged to appeal the conviction. “He’s upset. He’s crushed. He’s in custody and he was the administrator who didn’t touch a child and had only limited authority,” defense lawyer Jeffrey M. Lindy said. With the verdict, after 13 days of deliberations, jurors concluded that prosecutors failed to show that Lynn was part of a conspiracy to move predator priests around. The jury, however, did find that Lynn endangered the victim of defrocked priest Edward Avery, who pleaded guilty before trial to a 1999 sexual assault. Lynn had deemed Avery “guilty” of an earlier complaint on the 1994 list, and helped steer him into an inpatient treatment program run by the archdiocese. But Lynn knew that Avery later was sent to live in a northeast Philadelphia parish, where the altar boy was assaulted.

Syrian rebels accused of mass killing BY BASSEM MROUE Associated Press BEIRUT (AP) — An online video showed more than a dozen bloodied corpses, some of them piled atop each other and in military uniforms, dumped beside a road in northern Syria in what the government Friday called a mass killing by rebel forces. The circumstances of the deaths were not immediately clear, with the state-run news agency saying at least 25 men were killed. In the video — which The Associated Press could not independently verify — the narrator said the victims were members of the “shabiha,” or pro-regime gunmen.

If confirmed, the video is yet another sign of the brutality of the Syrian conflict, which began in March 2011. As the fighting grinds on, Syria is descending into a civil war where gunmen prowl the streets and gruesome massacres are growing increasingly common. The government has used heavy weapons and unleashed snipers and loyalist fighters, but rebels, too, have been accused of bloody attacks. Civilians have been caught in the crossfire; activists estimate that more than 14,000 people have been killed since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad’s regime. In a desperate bid to end the violence after an earlier peace plan failed to do so,

U.N. envoy Kofi Annan said that Iran — one of Syria’s most loyal allies — should be part of the solution to the conflict. Syria’s state-run news agency, SANA, said the dead found in the rebel-held area of Daret Azzeh near Aleppo were killed and their bodies mutilated by terrorist groups. The government refers to rebels as terrorists. The amateur video showing the corpses appeared to back up the allegation of a mass killing. “The terrorist groups in Daret Azzeh committed a brutal massacre against the citizens, whom they had kidnapped earlier in the day,” SANA said. The report said at least 25 people were killed, but others were missing.

Museum gets artifacts GREENVILLE — The Annie Oakley Center Foundation in Greenville has purchased three lots of Annie Oakley-related artifacts during a recent auction at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas. The Annie Oakley Center Foundation is an independent nonprofit that supports The National Annie Oakley Center at the Garst Museum in Greenville. This auction presented items that were offered by the family of

Billie Butler. Billie was the granddaughter of Annie Oakley’s brotherin-law, William. According to Eileen Litchfield, president of the Annie Oakley Center Foundation, “This auction represented an unusual opportunity to acquire Annie Oakley artifacts that would complement the existing exhibit at The National Annie Oakley Center at Garst Museum.” The three lots that the Annie Oakley Center

Foundation purchased were a handwritten letter from Annie Oakley’s husband, Frank Butler, to his brother, Will, about Annie’s final illness; a letter, a postcard and two envelopes from Butler to his brother, Will, in which Frank contradicts a false newspaper story that Annie had died; and a poem about hunting in Florida, with a postscript in Butler’s hand. The Garst Museum is at 205 N. Broadway.

PIQUA — Edison Community College’s nursing program wrapped up the spring 2012 semester with accolades for a past graduate and a pinning ceremony honoring its most recent graduating class. Local graduates included Loretta L. Cotterman, of Anna; Lee E. Daniel, Kayla M. Durand and Sheena A. Lee, all of Sidney; Jessica M. Bruns, of Maria Stein; Erin A. Patterson, of Port Jefferson; Andrew L. Pierron, of Versailles; and Kathyleen A. Young, of Russia. Edison alumna Jennifer Kiser was recognized for being recently named the Upper Valley Medical Center’s Cameos of Caring Award recipient. The pinning ceremony is a time-honored tradition in which the graduate nurse is presented to family and friends as a professional who is about to practice nursing and the graduate is usually “pinned” by the faculty members who have worked with the students throughout their course of study. Each school has a unique pin, which serves as a symbol of the successful completion of a rigorous curriculum, which prepares its graduates to administer to the sick and injured and promote health through the practice of nursing. More than 200 attendees were on hand for the ceremony. Edison faculty members Julia Galbreath, Carla Strater and Jill Bobb performed the pinning following opening reby Edison marks President Dr. Cris Valdez and Dean Gwen Stevenson.

When tomorrow starts without me When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see... if the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that an angel came & called my name, and took me by the hand.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry, the way you did today... while thinking of the many things, we didn’t get to say.

He said my place was ready, in heaven far above... and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love!

I know how much you love me... as much as I love you... and each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.

But when I walked thru Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home! When God looked down & smiled at me, from His great golden throne. He said, “This is eternity, and all I’ve promised you. For life on earth is past... but here it starts anew!” “I promise no tomorrow, for today will always last, and since each day’s the same way... there’s no longing for the past.”

It's so hard to believe it's been a year already since you took a piece of soo many people's hearts. We all miss him soo much!! Thank you everyone, from the bottom of my heart and Benji's brothers and sisters, for all everyone has said and done to help us get thru this..You all are forever in our hearts, Cindy (Miracle) Anderson, Jim Bradshaw, Craig, Kyle, Samantha and Ashley Anderson

Home sales up 19% in May Home sales activity throughout Ohio increased 19 percent in May, helping the marketplace record its 11th monthly consecutive sales gain, according to the statistics provided by the state’s Multiple Listing Services. Sales of new and existing homes posted a 13.3 percent increase during the first five months of 2012 compared to the same period a year ago, reaching 41,637 sales versus the 2011 mark of 36,749. “Our market appears to be establishing a very solid foundation following the downturn we experienced as a result of the onset of the economic collapse of 2008,” said Robert U. Miller, president of the Ohio Association of Realtors. “Our recent trend-line has been very encouraging and the industry remains cautiously optimistic that we’re making strides toward having a sustainable, growing marketplace going forward. “We remain extremely confident about the Ohio housing market — as interest rates remain at historic lows, prices have begun to trend upward, inventories are declin-

ing, sellers are increasingly realistic in their pricing expectations and consumers understand that long-term, owning a home is tremendous investment.” Not only have sales levels during the first five months exceeded the pace of a year ago, the average sales price (January through May) throughout Ohio this year is up 3.6 percent, reaching $125,826 versus the 2011 mark of $121,256. Total dollar volume this year is more than $5.2 billion, a 17.6 percent increase from last year’s five-month mark of more than $4.4 billion. Miller noted that a recent survey of the state’s real estate professionals suggests the industry remains optimistic about the market’s outlook in the coming months. The OAR Housing Market Confidence Index, a recently created measurement of the perception Ohio Realtors have of the marketplace, offers the following highlights of the June 2012 report: • 90 percent of Realtors describe the current housing market in their area as moderate to strong; a significant increase from the 52 per-

for a five-month total of $325 to $365 depending upon the efficiency of the furnace and size of the home. Natural gas heating bills have not been this low since the heating season of 2001 through 2002. Comparison of heating sources and the average five-month bill total follows: natural gas furnace, $365; natural gas furnace (high-efficiency model), $325; electric furnace, $1,550; electric heat pump, $740; and propane furnace, $1,650. Abundant gas supply in the U.S. has resulted in natural gas costs, which are passed through to customers on a dollar-fordollar basis, remaining at levels not seen in a decade. Furthermore, forecasts show the gas market remaining relatively stable for years to come.


DAYTON — A surge of abundant, domestic natural gas supply over the past few years has reportedly dramatically stabilized and lowered natural gas prices, which has helped natural gas once again be the most cost-effective energy source for home heating, according to Vectren. West Central Ohio customers of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio (Vectren) who heated their homes with natural gas this past winter paid significantly less than those who used propane or electricity to heat their homes over the winter heating season of November through March. The average Vectren customer, based on normal winter weather, paid a monthly bill of about $65 to $75 during the 2011-12 heating season

You also enjoy reading or learning inspirational things because you want to grow in wisdom. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) When it comes to moneymaking ideas today, the sky is the limit. However, make sure your ideas are realistic (even if you’re spending money), because your thoughts might be too pie-in-thesky. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You feel inspired now to be the best you can possibly be. You sense that the opportunities to do so are at hand and the rest is up to you. You’re right — it is up to you.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Something might occur that radically changes your belief system or alters it in some way. Or you may take an entirely new approach to higher education, publishing, the media, medicine or the law. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your relationship to the wealth of others (including shared debt) might be undergoing a revolutionary change. This is something that was unavoidable. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with partners and close friends are being tested now. Those who have outlived their usefulness will die on the vine. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Many of you will strive harder than ever before to be self-employed. You feel a strong need to rely only on yourself and be your own boss. (There’s nothing wrong with that.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You feel competitive at sports events or anything related to show business, the hospitality industry and possibly even with children. Failing romances will end now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Major changes are taking place at home or possibly within your family dynamic. Whatever happens ultimately will be for the best. These changes were overdue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone time for your sign, so pay attention to everything you say and do. That way you won’t have reasons for regret later. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Keep an eye on your earnings and your cash-flow scene. Something appears to be unstable here. Some of you might undergo a sudden change of jobs, which you have been suspecting might happen. YOU BORN TODAY You become intensely involved with whatever you do. Many of you develop a particular technique or skill that you use. You like to work in your own private world; however, you also like to explore spiritual realms, because you are aware of the consequences of your actions. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big. Birthdate of: Lionel Messi, soccer player; Liane Balaban, actress; Curt Smith, musician.

In particular, those in power might ask you to take on increased responsibilities, in which you can influence things for the better. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) If you can learn more about philosophy, religion or other belief systems, you will feel inspired today. If you’re lucky, you might meet a person who is a valuable teacher. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Others are generous to you now, and it is occurring to you that what goes around comes around. Perhaps your own generosity in the past is what is bringing you this good fortune now? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You want your closest relationships to be meaningful. Just make sure your demands are realistic, because, after all, we are all frail mortals.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your hopes to create something better at work might come to fruition now. In a way, it’s simply your hard work paying off, isn’t it? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your creativity can soar today! Enjoy artistic work, playful activities with children, the entertainment world and, of course, romance. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You have an opportunity to make wonderful changes at home or even in your family now. Do whatever you can, and remember that motivation is everything. YOU BORN TODAY You are imaginative and original. You’re also aware of what you’re dealing with, including your limitations, which is why you succeed. However, it’s important for you to have the respect and support of others. In turn, you are nurturing to others as well. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new.

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Sunday, June 24, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ve been feeling an increasing need to rebel against authority lately. Now the moment for it seems to have arrived. Easy does it. Don’t do anything you’ll regret later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Think twice about everything you say and do, because an unconscious need to resist others might make you do something you’ll later regret. (It’s hard to pinpoint when it’s unconscious.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Relations with a group might be torn apart today. This could be with one friend in particular, or you might simply leave the entire group. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) If you can, you will try to strike out on your own now. You want more independence in your life, both personally and professionally. Nevertheless, easy does it.

ST. MARYS — Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) officials did an experimental stocking of yellow perch at Grand Lake St. Marys on May 23. The goal of the stocking was to provide more angler opportunities while improving the self-sustainyellow perch ing population. “We believe the stocking, in conjunction with improvements in water quality, may promote recovery of yellow perch fishing at Grand Lake St. Marys,” said Rich Carter, executive administrator of Fish Management and Research with Division of ODNR Wildlife. The 100,408 yellow perch recently stocked were raised at the Division of Wildlife’s St.

Marys State Fish Hatchery and released at Behm’s Landing. All stocked fish were 1.5-2 inch “fingerlings” marked with a technique that will allow biologists to determine the difference between naturally reproduced and stocked fish. A naturally reproducing population still exists in the lake, however with a dwindling number, state officials wanted to stock the lake in hopes of increasing yellow perch fishing in the area. This stocking represents the first time since 1944 that yellow perch were stocked in Grand Lake St. Marys, and this stocking was the largest ever one-time stocking of yellow perch in the lake.

Open house on wildlife regulations set June 30 CELINA — The Division of ODNR Wildlife’s District Five will welcome the public to a special Open House June 30, from 9 to 11 a.m. The event will be hosted by the Mercer County Sportsmens Club; 7052 St. Rt. 703, Celina. “This open house will provide attendees an ad-

ditional chance to comment on Grand Lake St. Marys waterfowl regulations with wildlife biologist and management staff,” said Brett Beatty, Acting District Five Wildlife Management Supervisor in southwest Ohio. Attendees will be provided comment forms to officially submit their input during the open house.

Impaired boaters to be targeted this weekend COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Watercraft is among many state and local marine patrol agencies participating in a nationwide crackdown on alcoholimpaired boating known as Operation Dry Water this weekend. This is the fourth year of the special marine enforcement effort initiated by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators. Alcohol is involved in approximately one of every three boating-re-

lated accidents on Ohio waterways. While state watercraft officers and local marine patrols are always on the lookout for impaired boat operators, Operation Dry Water is an organized national effort that focuses greater awareness of the need for boaters to boat smart, boat sober and make a commitment to staying safe on the water. In 2011, Division of Watercraft officers contacted 1,907 boaters and made eight arrests for boating while intoxicated during the weekend-long effort.

Kiser Lake gets hybrid stripers COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife stocked over 20,000 hybrid striped bass in Kiser Lake on June 6th. Officials are hopeful that annual stockings will provide “fish of a lifetime” catches in coming years. “Hybrid striped bass are a great species to stock in many of our pro-

ductive Ohio reservoirs” stated Ethan Simmons, a fisheries biologist from the District One office in Columbus. “They have very high growth rates and Kiser Lake has the potential to grow a state record in the near future.” Hybrid stocking was reinstated last year after an experimental striped bass stocking proved unproductive. Hybrid striped bass, also known

as sunshine bass or wipers, are a mix between a white bass and striped bass. The Division of Wildlife stocks these in reservoirs and the Ohio River to provide more fishing opportunities and to better utilize abundant prey. The hybrid striped bass are stocked as “fingerlings”, about an inch long. Last years stocked fish are now around 5 to 7 inches long, reports

Simmons. There are currently no regulations on hybrid striped bass, but the Division of Wildlife encourages anglers to catch and release these young fish to improve the quality of fishing in the future. Other Ohio Lakes receiving annual stockings of hybrid striped bass include East Fork, Charles Mill, Buckeye, Dillon, and O’Shaughnessy Reservoir.

CINCINNATI REDS' Chris Heisey (28) slides into second base with a double as Minnesota Twins second baseman Jamey Carroll (8) looks for the tag in the third inning of a baseball game Friday in Cincinnati. Umpire Bob Davidson watches.

Reds drop 4th straight CINCINNATI (AP) — Ryan Doumit and Ben Revere each had four hits Friday night, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 5-4 victory that gave the Cincinnati Reds their season-high fourth straight loss. Doumit hit a solo shot off Homer Bailey (5-5), who angrily left the field after failing to get through the sixth inning. Revere broke an 0for-15 slump with four singles.

Chris Heisey and Scott Rolen had two-run homers off Nick Blackburn (4-4), who lasted only five innings. Glen Perkins escaped a threat in the ninth for his second save in place of Matt Capps, out with a sore shoulder. Rolen and pinchhitter Ryan Hannigan both singled to put runners on first and third with one out, but Zac Cozart and Heisey both struck out to end the game.

Plate umpire Jerry Layne left in the fourth inning after the barrel of a broken bat hit him on the left side of the head, going to a hospital for tests.

Pirates beat Tigers PITTSBURGH (AP) — A.J. Burnett pitched six shutout innings to win his seventh consecutive start and the Pittsburgh Pirates won for the fifth time in six games, 4-1 over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Former Sidney High School and Middle School principal Gene Gooding has been named the new head girls basketball coach at Covington High School, following a board meeting in Covington Thursday night. Gooding resigned recently Gooding after three years as a principal at Sidney High School to go into private business. He purchased a summer youth campground in Pennsylvania. He continues to operate that facility, but will also return to the classroom, teaching social studies at Covington in addition to coaching the girls, who were 15-9 last season and lost to Russia in the district championship. It’s Gooding’s second head girls basketball coaching job, having spent three seasons in the same capacity at Hilltop High School. He also was a freshman boys coach at McComb High School. He was principal at Sidney Middle School for two years before leaving to be the high school principal at North Central. He was also a principal in the West Liberty-Salem school system before returning to Sidney.

Jury convicts Sandusky of abuse BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Jerry Sandusky was convicted Friday of sexually assaulting 10 boys over 15 years, accusations that had sent shock waves through the college campus known as Happy Valley Sandusky and led to the firing of Penn State’s beloved Hall of Fame coach, Joe Paterno. Sandusky, a 68-year-old retired defensive coach who was once Paterno’s heir apparent, was found guilty of Friday of 48 counts. He faces life in

prison at sentencing, which is weeks away. Sandusky showed little emotion as the verdict was read. The judge ordered him to be taken to the county jail to await sentencing in about three months. Eight young men testified in a central Pennsylvania courtroom about a range of abuse, from kissing and massages to groping, oral sex and anal rape. For two other alleged victims, prosecutors relied on testimony from a university janitor and then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary, whose account of a sexual encounter between Sandusky and a boy

of about 10 ultimately led to the Paterno’s dismissal and the university president’s ouster. Sandusky did not take the stand in his own defense. He had repeatedly denied the allegations, and his defense suggested that his accusers had a financial motive to make up stories, years after the fact. His attorney also painted Sandusky as the victim of overzealous police investigators who coached the alleged victims into giving accusatory statements. But jurors believed the testimony that, in the words of lead prosecutor Joseph

McGettigan III, Sandusky was a “predatory pedophile.” One accuser testified that Sandusky molested him in the locker-room showers and in hotels while trying to ensure his silence with gifts and trips to bowl games. He also said Sandusky had sent him “creepy love letters.” Another spoke of forced oral sex and instances of rape in the basement of Sandusky’s home, including abuse that left him bleeding. He said he once tried to scream for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but figured the basement must be soundproof.

Minster’s Floyd gets national recognition Minster softball standout Hanna Floyd, who led the area in hitting and led her team to the regional finals in Division IV this spring, has been named to the 2012 Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-North Region second team. A shortstop, Floyd finished her senior season with an amazing .648 batting average, with 59 hits and a slugging percentage of 1.088. She was named the Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year. She will be playing for Division I Wright State next spring. The North Region consists of players from Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.

All-Ohio Russia senior pitcher Katelyn Herron was named to the All-Ohio second team in Division IV by the Ohio High School Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association. Herron was the area’s



top pitcher this season, going 15-7 with a 1.59 earned run average in 1361/3 innings. She struck out 202. Two more County standouts were named to the honorable mention list in D-IV, including pitcher Paige Ordean of Fort Loramie and infielder Nikki Holthaus of Houston. Ordean was the County Player of the Year after leading the Lady Redskins to the league title. She was 176 on the mound with a 2.06 ERA and 177 strikeouts. She also hit .314. Holthaus was one of the area’s top hitters, finishing with a .444 average.

Cleveland moves on as LeBron crowned champ CLEVELAND (AP) — On the same sidewalk where fans torched a LeBron James jersey in protest two summers ago, office workers on their lunch hours passed gamblers headed to the new downtown casino. Just another day. While James was in Miami celebrating his first NBA title, fans in the city he scorned to chase a championship had a much more subdued, internal reaction. There were no angry protests, no public outrage, no threats of harm. Those days have long past. The king got his ring. And Cleveland, where sports despair’s roots have grown for generations, seemed to sigh in acceptance. “In a way I’m kind of happy for him,” bar-

tender Natalie Hardik said between serving pints of beer at Flannery’s, an Irish bar and restaurant across the street from Quicken Loans Arena, where James once starred. “But I definitely still feel a lot of bitterness toward him — everyone does.” This city, yearning to celebrate its first pro championship sport since 1964, hasn’t forgiven James for leaving as a free agent in 2010. Many can’t let it go. There’s lingering pain and resentment, but there’s also a sense that it’s time to move on. Some Clevelanders already had. “I hope they have moved on, and I kind of felt many fans had come to accept this would happen during the season,”

said TV sports anchor Jim Donovan, a longtime Cleveland resident. “Fans felt him winning it all was inevitable, and I think some of them may have given up because it’s exhausting to root against the guy. It’s better to root for your team.” Cleveland reveled in seeing James fail in last year’s finals. And the sight of James, who grew up in nearby Akron and spent seven seasons with the Cavaliers, hugging and hoisting a championship trophy was tough to stomach. “I had mixed feelings,” said Mike Kubinski. “It’s a lot like when your exgirlfriend or exboyfriend gets married.” As he spoke, Kubinski stood just a few feet away from an outdoor clothing

kiosk at Westlake’s Crocker Park, where “Lyin’ King” T-shirts were sold after James’ departure in 2010. Now, there’s hardly a trace of James anywhere to be found in Cleveland, where his No. 23 jersey was once omnipresent and his likeness loomed above the city on a giant downtown billboard. “LeWho?” said Jimmy Pearl of Cleveland. “He left. Outta sight, outta mind, my man.” Coincidentally, at about the exact time James and the Miami Heat were dispatching the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night, a storm rumbled in across Lake Erie, its thunder and lightning providing the perfect backdrop for another dark moment in Cleveland sports history.

Community Lanes sees two 300 games MINSTER — Minster’s Community BowlLanes recently ing recognized two bowlers who rolled perfect games during the recently-completed 2011-12 season. Chad Berning and Bill Elson were the only two bowlers to post 300 games this season, but that was one more than last season, when Dave Bollenbacher rolled the only perfect game. This season, Berning rolled his on Jan. 29 and Elson on Feb. 22. There were four perfect games rolled in



2009-10, but in all, there have been just 12 rolled at Community Lanes, the first being in 1966 by Tom Schwenzer. Galen Collier holds the house record for high series at 802, rolled in 1994.

THIS COMBO made from 2009, left, 2008, center, and 2011 file photos shows from left: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic after winning at Wimbledon. As Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer step back on the grass at

Wimbledon, each has reason to believe he’ll be hoisting the trophy overhead in two weeks’ time. Indeed, it's tough to imagine anyone outside that trio winning this year's championship at the All England Club, where play begins Monday.

even if he’s approaching his 31st birthday on Aug. 8. Asked to size up his prospects for adding to his Grand Slam total, Federer said, “I think the upcoming two,” referring to Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, “those will be my best chances to win.” While players such as Berdych or Tsonga or Roddick or del Potro have shown they can compete with the best on their best days — and No. 4 Andy Murray, a three-time major finalist, gets plenty of homecrowd support because he represents Britain — the expectation is that Djokovic, Nadal or Federer will extend their hard-to-believe rule at Grand Slam tournaments. “Murray is obviously the other guy. He would be the other guy that would have the next best chance,” said seven-time major champion John McEnroe, who’ll be calling matches for ESPN as it takes over from NBC as the main Wimbledon TV channel in the United States. For some perspective, consider what’s been going on in golf: When Webb Simpson won the U.S. Open last weekend, he was the ninth consecutive first-time major champion in that sport; he also was the 15th man to win one of the past 15 majors. That sort of parity does exist in tennis, too, but only in the women’s game, where six players divided up the most recent six Grand Slam titles, capped by Maria Sharapova’s triumph at the French Open. That return to the top — and to No. 1 in the WTA rankings — makes her a popular

pick to do well at Wimbledon, too. She did, after all, make her breakthrough at the grass-court tournament by winning it at age 17 in 2004. There also are cases to be made for four-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams, who is sure to be intent on making up for a firstround loss at Roland Garros; defending champion Petra Kvitova; recent No. 1 Victoria Azarenka, a semifinalist a year ago; 2007 runnerup Marion Bartoli; former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, probably the best player without a Grand Slam title; and even Venus Williams, who might be slowed by an autoimmune disease but still knows how to get the most out of her big serve and powerful groundstrokes at a tournament she’s won five times. It’s much easier to come up with a lengthy list of contenders for the women’s title than it is for the men’s. Why has tennis’ top trio won major after major? “Because they are too good,” Tsonga said. “That’s it. They’re just too good.”

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — Marcos Ambrose had never won a Sprint Cup Series pole before last week. Now he has two in a row. Ambrose won the top starting spot Friday for Sunday’s race at Sonoma with a fast lap around the 1.99-mile road course. He knocked off five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, then waited to see if Jeff Gordon could beat him. “I don’t know if I got it all, but I got a lot of it,” Ambrose said after his lap, which averaged 95.262 mph. Gordon, the career leader on road courses with nine victories, was the last driver to attempt to qualify. He ran an aggressive lap around the 10-turn course, and just missed the pole with an average speed of 95.067 mph. Gordon will start second. “I thought it was a really good lap,” Gordon said. “Hey, you’ve got to credit where credit is due: Marcos laid down a heck of a lap and we came up just a little bit short. We knew that was going to be a tough lap to beat.” Ambrose, who excels at road course racing but is showing rapid improvement on ovals and picked up his first pole in 134 races last week at Michigan, said his Richard Petty Motorsports had his Ford ready for Sonoma. “We put a lot of effort into this road course program,” said Ambrose, who raced to his lone Cup victory last year on the road course at Watkins Glen. “I’m thrilled for my team and it takes a whole team to qualify on pole two weeks in a row.” Johnson ended up third, putting the Hendrick Motorsports teammates second and third on the starting grid, but said he’s got a lot of work to do on his Chevrolet. “We’ve been really struggling on comfort in

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Dario Franchitti won the third of the first three qualifying heat races in the history of the current IndyCar series Friday to take the pole for the Iowa Corn Indy 250. Franchitti, the Indianapolis 500 winner, has two victories in four starts on Iowa's short oval. Castroneves Helio will start on the front row with Franchitti, followed by 2011 winner Marco Andretti, James Hinchcliffe and Ryan Briscoe. The starting grid was set by three 30-lap heat races seeded according to practice times. The eight fastest in the last practice competed in the final heat, which set the first four rows for the Saturday night race. The opening two heats seeded the rest of the starting grid.

Independence Day Celebration set

The New Bremen-New Knoxville Rotary Club is recognized June 16 at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new handicapped-accessible Sunshine Playground at Bremenfest Park. The club spearheaded the project, which began in September 2010 with the announcement of a $250,000 fundraising goal. It is the only handicapped-accessible playground within a 70-mile radius.

MECCA recognizes St. Marys for trails work ST. MARYS — The Miami and Erie Canal Corridor Association (MECCA) celebrated and recognized the city of St. Marys during National Trails Days June 2. National Trails Day is celebrated to increase awareness about trails and this year celebrated the work of the city for its restoration of Lock 13, construction of a shelterhouse with restrooms, landscaping, installation of a brick paver pathway and parking facilities that provide access to the Towpath Trail. Speakers at the ceremony spoke of the significance of the development in the quality of life of the local residents, and the attraction for recre-

ational and history-related travel and tourism. Kelly Kill, director of the St. Marys Chamber of Commerce, welcomed those in attendance and described the economic influence the developed trail has in a community. St. Marys Mayor Pat McGowan spoke of the canal developments and the opportunity and plans to further enhance the canal corridor in the city. Retired Canal Supervisor Steve Dorsten and Assistant Park Manager Dave Faler spoke of the critical partnerships with local governmental entities, local service organizations and individual volunteers. The partnerships assure the Towpath Trail will offer high qual-

ity and safe recreational opportunities for the public. MECCA Executive Director Neal Brady highlighted the health and wellness benefits that an accessible trail offers to youth and adults. It was noted that young people today do not easily connect with the outdoors. As a result, the future generations might not acquire a sense of stewardship for the protection of the natural environment. The Miami and Erie Canal Corridor Association works to promote, preserve and develop the resources along the Canal Heritage Corridor. For additional information, go to

Event raises funds for hospice CELINA — More than 200 guests attended Grand Lake Hospice’s fourth annual gala “Hooray for Hollywood” on April 21 at Romer’s in Celina. Guests arrived on the red carpet and walked on the “Walk of Fame” floor with all guests and sponsors named. Tables decorated by Blaine Kohler with gold vases of white orchids set the tone for the Hollywood event, which raised more than $52,000 for Grand Lake Hospice. Michael Ayres photographed guests as they entered on a red carpet, while judges reviewed

their costumes. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were served as silent-auction bidding began. Costume contest winners were Bobby and Karen Ryals, best couple; Teri Lowe, best dressed; and Scott Stephens, most unique. Master of ceremonies Rick Gerdeman entertained guests as they dined on the Hollywoodinspired menu while enjoying the sounds of Jack Garrett and the Syndicate. The live auction followed by auctioneer John Hall of JM Associates in St. Marys. “We are grateful for the sponsors, those who donated auction items, and

for everyone who came to enjoy the evening all while supporting the care that is provided by Grand Lake Hospice,” said Linda Haines, director of Grand Lake Hospice. “Sandy Gerdeman, chair, and committee members,Rick Gerdeman, Brooke Dingledine, Tanya Temple, Eunice Ernst, Melissa Smalley and Tammy Bruns are to be congratulated for their outstanding fundraising efforts,” said Karen Ryals, executive director for JTD Hospital Foundation. “Plans are already under way for next year’s event, ‘Viva Las Vegas,’ on April 13, 2013.”

The treatment is to

flatten that inward curve of the lower back as much as possible when standing, walking and sitting. Once this postural goal is met, the abdomen will not protrude so much. The third factor is abdominal-muscle exercise. Every trainer and every author on abdominal exercise describes the one perfect exercise and condemns all others. That’s nonsense. Many good exercises will achieve the goal of stronger abs. The standard crunch is a good example. Lying on the back with lower legs resting on a seat or bench, arms behind the head, raise the back off the floor. Some say the most important part of the exercise is simply getting the shoulder blades off the floor. Others insist on a full upright position for the back. And still others tell you to alternate elbow touches to the knees, right elbow to left knee, left elbow to right knee.

If you pay attention to all three factors, a trim abdomen is quite possible. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you say something about race-walking. I saw a race-walk demonstration on TV, and the spokesperson says it was one of the best ways to get a thorough workout. Is it? It looks kind of funny. — J.T. ANSWER: It does look funny. As I understand it, to qualify as race-walking, a person must keep one foot always in contact with the ground. The front leg is kept straight when it’s in position to touch the ground. The arms are always bent. When the right leg is in the front position, the left elbow comes forward. A person weighing 150 pounds burns close to 250 calories in 30 minutes of race-walking, a substantial number of calories.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for seven years and have two small children. My husband loves me and is good to me. My problem is I no longer feel the same about him anymore. My former fiance recently came back into my life. I hadn’t seen him in eight years, and the moment I saw him all the old feelings came flooding back. We even spent the night together. I told my husband everything, hoping he would be upset and leave me, but he was forgiving and wants to stay married! Now I don’t know what to do — stay with him or be with the one true love of my life. I can’t stop thinking about my love. Please help me. — UNHAPPY

IN MILWAUKEE DEAR UNHAPPY: Nowhere in your letter have you indicated that your ex-fiance feels the way you do, and is ready to support you emotionally and financially. You have much to lose if you abandon your husband and children. That’s why I’m urging you and your husband to seek counseling to try to reignite your marriage, because right now you are living in a fantasy of what “might have been.”

June 23, 1912 Flying at the rate of 60 miles an hour above the heads of fully 5,000 people assembled at the Park Place lot sale, aviator C.F. Walsh of the Curtiss Exhibition Co., New York, captivated his spectators by executing many dangerous and marvelous feats of flying. ––––– Harry Engle, the Troy joyrider who came to grief at the corner of West Avenue and Forest Street, yesterday was in the city again today and was taken in charge by Policeman Eisentein who is investigating Engle’s alleged fast driving about the city. The driver claims that he was not driving faster than eight miles an hour although one witness claimed he was driving at the rate of 30 miles an hour when he came down the Forest Street hill. ––––– The Sidney Deer Hunters, aspiring for new fields to enter and new hunters to conquer, journeyed to Wapakoneta today to take into camp the Auglaize County marksmen.

audience of 2,000 watched the afternoon show and 900 were present for the evening performance, officials of the local club said. ––––– Sidney’s Lucky Barrel had a winner this weekFloyd Runyon.
