Storm rages through county BY JEFF BILLIEL


For a full weather report, turn to Page 16A.

A strong summer storm roared through Shelby County late Friday afternoon with wind gusts up to 80 miles per hour, downing trees and power lines and knocking out power to some 2,100 Dayton Power & Light Co. customers within the county. At midnight many customers in the Sidney area were still without electricity. The storm, fueled by tem-

peratures in the high 90s, included hail in some areas and saw the mercury drop 30 degrees within half an hour. Large parts of Sidney were without power and traffic lights throughout town were not working. This resulted in huge traffic tie-ups at intersections as motorists moved cautiously forward. The 911 emergency number at the Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office went down due to the power outage and Patrick Goldschmidt of the

Sheriff’s Office was posted to the Sidney Police Station to take calls received by their 911 system and relay them to the Sheriff ’s Office. By early evening the system was still down and efforts were under way to restore service. Goldschmidt expressed concern that they couldn’t get the word out to the public that the 911 number was down because local radio station WMVR was also without power and couldn’t broadcast. At least two homes in the

area were struck by lightning, one at 1338 Riverbend Blvd., Sidney, and one on Lane Street in Fort Loramie. Lt. Rod Dyer of the Sidney Department of Fire and Emergency Services said the department responded to the River Bend Boulevard location which apparently did not sustain serious damage. Sidney Fire responded to numerous other fire calls as fire alarms were activated by the power outage, Dyer said. See STORM/Page 3A

Two-car crash kills 1, injures 3 ANNA — One person was killed and three injured in a fiery crash Friday in Shelby County. The Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office is investigating the crash which happened at the intersection of Sharp and Scott roads around 10 a.m. The crash involved an SUV and another vehicle. There were reports from the police scanner that the driver of the SUV was trapped for a short time and a passerby pulled the driver from the vehicle and CareFlight was called. The driver was identified as a female but her name has not yet been released and she died following the accident. One passenger from the SUV and the driver and passenger of the other car involved were all taken to Wilson Memorial Hospital. Their conditions and names have not been released.

Traffic stop yields 20 lbs. of marijuana

Sidney to host fireworks While some people may have been concerned the annual Fourth of July fireworks display would not be held this year in Sidney due to a lack of funding, the show will go on. In a joint announcement by Wilson Memorial Hospital President and CEO Tom Boecker and Sidney Mayor Mike Barhorst, the community was reassured the event will indeed be held. Funding is being provided by the hospital. “I happened to be in the audience when the mayor gave his State of the City Address to the Sidney Rotary Club,” Boecker stated. “When he mentioned that severe cuts the city had to make to balSee FIREWORKS/Page 3A

ANNA — Twenty pounds of marijuana were seized during a traffic stop near the 102-mile marker of Interstate 75 near Anna. Troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol stopped a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe for a speed violation and following too closely around 6:42 a.m. on Friday. According to Sgt. Chris Coverstone, the trooper who pulled over the vehicle noticed something about the occupants of the vehicle. “Our officers are trained to notice things and observed some criminal indicators,” said Coverstone. “The officer then had one of our drug sniffing K-9 units come out. The dog alerted to the car and during the search we found the marijuana.” Lance M. Corde, 30, of Maysville, Ky., was arrested and is incarcerated in the Shelby County Jail and charged with possession of marijuana, a felony of the third degree.

Ohio EPA temporarily suspends open burning permission Ohio EPA Temporarily Suspends Open Burning Permission Due to weather forecasts predicting hot and dry conditions for the state, and a National Weather Service statement regarding increased fire hazards for the next few days, Ohio EPA will temporarily suspend issuing open burning permission. The need for temporary suspension is partly due to brush fires seen since Monday in several areas of the state. Under Ohio rules, open burning is not permitted in restricted areas, which include: • the boundaries of any municipal corporation; • corporation limits and a 1,000-foot zone outside any municipal corporation having a population of 1,000 to 10,000; and • corporation limits and a one-mile zone outside any municipal corporation with a population of more than 10,000. In areas outside those

zones, there are fewer restrictions and open burning is allowed if it complies with state rules and local ordinances. Again, Ohio EPA discourages open burning in these areas at all times, and certainly until dry conditions are less severe. Under certain circumstances, burning a prohibited material or setting a fire in a restricted area is legal with prior written permission from Ohio EPA, through one of its district offices or a local air agency. Until weather conditions improve, Ohio EPA has advised its of-

attendance during all four quarters of the school year. A total of 26 students had perfect attendance and were entered in the prize drawing.

FIREWORKS ance their budget would not leave enough funds for the July Fourth fireworks, I thought not only of all the disappointed children, but of how difficult financially things had been for the entire community — and how fireworks on the Fourth of July are an important part of America’s tradition. I immediately went to the hospital’s board of trustees to see if we could partner with the city of Sidney and save the fireworks. The board agreed to help sponsor the fireworks this year.” The traditional fireworks display will be held Wednesday on the Sidney Middle School grounds, 980 Fair Road. As has been past practice, the city of Sidney will provide in-kind services for this event by way of site inspection, fire protection during the exhibit, traffic control and help provide for the safety and welfare of the residents before, during and after the event. The fireworks exhibit is scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. In announcing the sponsorship, Boecker commented, “Wilson Memorial Hospital receives a large volume of sponsorship requests throughout the year. As a nonprofit organization, we must be a good steward of resources. Therefore, careful

consideration is given to the awarding of funds to outside nonprofit organizations.” He noted the hospital has three categories of sponsorship — health focused, education-based and civic-minded. “As one of the area’s largest employers, we believe in supporting and organizations events for the good of the community and this is one of them. It is important for our community to come together to carry on certain traditions and to celebrate our nation’s freedom,” he said. “ Many families in our community have made sacrifices by way of the loved ones having fought for our country or are currently serving in the military. Independence Day is another way for all of us to express our gratitude and appreciation for what they do to protect our freedoms.” Barhorst thanked the hospital board for its support. “Our community has been blessed with civicminded partners who have stepped forward during the current economic downturn to help continue some of our important services and traditions,” Barhorst stated. “Examples that come to mind include Safety Town, new play equipment for Custenborder and Tawawa parks, and

Activities include hamburgers, hot dogs, desserts and ice cream, a cruise-in, cornhole tournament and the announcement of the Little Miss and Mister FireInterested cracker. people may contact Deb Kaufman at 497-1353 for more details. Barhorst reminded residents and visitors that only state-licensed exhibitors can display and discharge fireworks. The only types of fireworks that can be legally discharged by the public are trick and novelty devices; which include items that smoke, sparkle, snap and snake. These devices should only be used by adults, or children who are under adult supervision, he said. These devices do get hot enough to ignite clothing and cause burn injuries, so use them with caution to enjoy a safe holiday.

Boy recovering from horse-kick to head BY KATHY LEESE JACKSON CENTER — A Jackson Center child is recovering from injuries sustained when a horse kicked him in the head recently. Injured was Landon Reese, 7, son of Jeff and Misty Reese, who was camping with his family at Dew Downs near Port Jefferson when the incident occurred while riding with other children in an arena, said his aunt, Becky Reese. She said Landon was riding a pony but was kicked by a horse. The family owns both animals. The Perry-Port-Salem Rescue Squad was called, and the boy was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. He is now recovering at Hospital Children’s there. Reportedly, the Port Jefferson Fire Department also assisted,


clearing the way for the CareFlight helicopter to land. According to a website set up by the family to update the community on Landon’s condition, “Landon was riding a pony when another horse kicked, hitting him on the left side of the head. He has a fractured skull, and it damaged his brain membrane. They (doctors) removed the bone fragments and stitched him back up. Doc(tors) said surgery went well. “ The child is reportedly in a sedative coma. Since that initial posting on June 17, Landon has been listed as stable and has faced several challenges as his brain continues to heal from the trauma. The website notes that he is continuing to show improvement, although he remains in a coma. Landon is reportedly

Landon Reese an active boy who attends the Jackson Center United Methodist Church with his family and enjoys summer baseball, basketball, soccer and karate. Doctors placed a feeding tube and a tracheostomy in Landon on

Tuesday, and in another post, his parents wrote that Landon is receiving physical and occupational therapy. Landon, who will be a second grader at Jackson Center Elementary School in the fall, is surrounded with familiar items in his hospital room, including a state basketball shirt, a teddy bear and other items. Country music is playing constantly. On June 23, Misty Reese wrote that Landon had a cross in one hand and a basketball in the other, and they stated, “We cannot even begin to thank you all enough for the thoughts, prayers, gifts, donations, meals, etc. . . . our friends who witnessed and protected Landon after the accident, the first response and Careflight crews, all of the nurses, therapists, doctors and surgeons have taken exceptional care of him. It

is because of all of you that he is still with us today. And it is the emotional and physical support from all of our friends and family that Jeff and I are still standing.” Becky Reese echoed their sentiments, noting that the prayers of people from Jackson Center and around Shelby County is “what carried us” and continues to help the family and Landon. She noted that the family “can’t even begin” to thank everyone for their help. “The whole community of Jackson Center . . . we have food coming in from Jackson Center, outside of Jackson Center.” She said there have been nearly 900 posts on Facebook. On June 21 the Jackson Center United Methodist Church held a prayer vigil for Landon. As of Wednesday, the boy’s condition was

listed as stable. His aunt said eventually doctors plan to transfer him to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus for rehabilitation for seven to 10 days. His mother wrote in one post, “I asked God for a glimmer of hope today, and I think Landon … showed me. It is still hard to see him go through this, but we will be here every step of the way.” The family would appreciate the prayers of Shelby County residents and churches for Landon and the family. Cards may be sent to Landon Reese, c/o Jeff and Misty Reese, P.O. Box 415, Jackson Center, OH 45334.

Quincy Council handles issues QUINCY — At its recent meeting, Quincy Village Council dealt with a number of property issues and health concerns. A property on Walnut Street was reportedly vacated and being used for a trash dump site. Adjacent property owners had complained about strong odors from the property on hot or windy days. Council members learned that the matter was being investigated by the Logan County Health Department. Council emphasized that the village has a 24hour time frame between placement of trash and its pickup. Property owners must place trash in proper trash containers or bags for pickup. If a bag is torn and trash scattered, property owners are responsible to rebag the trash and place it at the curb for pickup. Council revoked a building permit for 103 Mill St. because of lack of completion of the project. An extension had been granted to extend the completion date to May 31. A letter is being sent to notify the property owner that the building permit is no longer valid. Matt Stottler of the Quincy Sports Association reported to the council that six games remain for this season and that soccer signup begins in July. He also noted that someone has been dumping personal trash in the ball park trash barrels. Council members stated that this was illegal and decided to have the matter investigated and possibly prosecute offenders. Village resident Richard Heniser addressed an issue of high weeds on a property adjacent to his. He also stated concerns about a valve at the water tower not properly working and the quality of his water service. Village Administrator Kirk Helmandollar said this valve was the first one flushed when the village fire hydrants are flushed. Also discussed was a concern about trees on New Street. One tree is considered a hazard. The base of the tree has split and there is a danger of it

falling. A second tree on the street is now also known to be in the same condition. Council members learned that the costs for removal of the trees will be more than expected. The alley between Yost and Miami streets was also discussed. It has reportedly become overgrown with trees and weeds. Village workers are to clean up the alley as soon as possible. Mayor Daniel Robinson told council members that the dog warden has recently been in the village to investigate reports of animals running freely. He noted that pet owners who do not have dog licenses may be cited. He also stated that freeroaming animals may be captured and removed. If pet owners want to reclaim them, they will need to pay appropriate fines. In addition, they will have to pay for licenses when they reclaim their pets. John Hickman updated the council on matters with the Joint Sewer Board. The board is in the process of seeking approval to receive an exception to the 24-hour plant operator requirement with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. One of the requirements to have an exception is to have a Class 1 operator who can respond to an emergency situation in 30 minutes. Board members are considered personnel for this. Council approved the second presentation for 3 percent cost-of-living salary increases for Fiscal Officer Sandra Ward and Village Administrator Kirk Helmandollar. The administrator notified council that Jason Herring had been hired to fill vacancy for a parttime village worker at $8 per hour. In other news, council member Sue Arnett told the members there were 18 garage sales on June 2 during community garage sales . That is slightly down from a year ago. However, there were eight nonparticipating garage sales reported. Money from the sale of the signs helps defray the costs of advertising the sales.

From page 1 There were no reports of flooding, despite heavy rain. Although Wilson Memorial Hospital also lost power, an auxiliary system automatically took over and kept the electricity on. Fort Loramie Fire Chief Brad Schulze said the lightning strike in that village caused a small fire in the kitchen and that neighbors had put the blaze out with extinguishers by the time the fire department arrived. In Sidney and throughout the county, numerous trees and limbs and power poles were downed, causing outages and damaging property. Several trees fell on houses in Sidney and one fell on a semi-rig truck on North Wapakoneta Avenue. A number of roofs were also damaged by the high winds. There was reportedly severe damage to barns and other structures in the Russia area. A semi-rig was reportedly blown over on Interstate 75, north of Botkins. A report on the incident was not available because the Wapakoneta Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol had lost power and access to its computer system. Tom Tatham, DP&L director of operations, said at 8:30 Friday night that the utility was assessing damage within its 6,000square-mile service area and was establishing priorities for restoring power. “When we have a situation so severe we restore power to critical infrastructures first, such as police and hospitals,” he said. He noted DP&L tries to work with local governments in such cases. He said they would try to restore power to emergency shelters and cooling centers during periods of extreme heat, such as is predicted for this weekend. The Sidney Daily News was among businesses losing power and was unable to put its newspaper together at its offices on North Vandemark Road. At 10 p.m. the news and information services staffs packed up computers and servers and took them to the Piqua Daily Call offices where the newspaper was produced. The Piqua and Sidney newspapers are both part of the Ohio Community Media chain. The Sidney newspaper missed its usual press deadline and consequently some readers may have received their paper late today.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, June 30, the 182nd day of 2012. There are 184 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 30, 1912, Canada’s deadliest tornado on record occurred as a late-afternoon cyclone struck Regina, the provincial capital of Saskatchewan, killing 28 people and destroying or damaging 500 buildings. On this date: ■ In 1859, French acroCharles Blondin bat (blahn-DAN’) walked back and forth on a tightrope above the gorge of Niagara Falls as thousands of spectators watched. ■ In 1860, the famous Oxford University Museum debate on Darwin’s theory of evolution took place as Anglican Bishop Samuel Wilberforce led his side in denouncing the concept, while biologist T.H. Huxley defended it. ■ In 1908, the Tunguska Event took place in Russia as an asteroid exploded above Siberia, leaving 800 square miles of scorched or blown-down trees. ■ In 1921, President Warren G. Harding nominated former President William Howard Taft to be chief justice of the United States, succeeding the late Edward Douglass White. ■ In 1934, Adolf Hitler carried out his “blood purge” of political and military rivals in Germany in what came to be known as “The Night of the Long Knives.” ■ In 1936, the epic Civil War novel “Gone with the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell was first published by The Macmillan Co. in New York. ■ In 1952, “The Guiding Light,” a popular radio program, began a 57-year television run on CBS. ■ In 1958, the U.S. Senate passed the Alaska statehood bill by a vote of 64-20. ■ In 1963, Pope Paul VI was crowned the 262nd head of the Roman Catholic Church. ■ In 1972, for the first time, a leap-second was added to Coordinated Universal Time to account for the slowing rotation of the Earth. ■ In 1982, the proposed Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution expired, having failed to receive the required number of ratifications for its adoption, despite having its seven-year deadline extended by three years. Ten years ago: Leonard Gregg, a part-time firefighter, was charged with starting one of the two wildfires that merged into a monstrous blaze in eastern Arizona.


Sidney Daily News, Saturday, June 30, 2012

‘War room’ type effort places firefighting assets ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Flames eat through the second story of a home in Colorado as a car sits in the driveway. In the background, an entire neighborhood glows orange as it goes up in flames. A wall of fire consumes the front of a home as a lone firefighter futilely blasts it with water. A heavy air tanker working to slow the flames is dwarfed as a massive plume of smoke looms in the background. The dramatic images provide just a glimpse of this year's fire season — one that has broken records in New Mexico, forced thousands of people to flee their homes in Colorado and left an ashy, black scar across more than 1.8 million acres of the nation's forests. "It's been characterized that fire is war, and I suppose in a sense it can be characterized like that," said Tom Harbour, director of fire and aviation management for the U.S. Forest Service. Holed up in makeshift war rooms packed into school gymnasiums or nondescript warehouses on the fringes of wildfires burning around the West, incident commanders spend nearly every waking hour huddled around big maps, looking at computer screens or glued to the radio, trying to plot their next move. Their decisions come after pouring over intelligence that's flooding in from crew leaders on the fire lines, weather forecasters, fuels analysts and experts who know the terrain. Elsewhere, teams of specialists surrounded by computers, monitors tuned into the news and maps smooth out the logistics of shuffling firefighters and equipment around the country. They tap into databases that list the nation's resources and every firefighter who's qualified to fight wildfires. There are thousands of firefighters on the front lines, from Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona to Utah and Montana. Hundreds of engines, air tankers and helicopters have been mobilized. "We've got competition for firefighting assets, but we're still at a point where we've got lots of available assets to mix and match on individual incidents," Harbour told The Associated Press in a phone interview. The National Interagency Fire Center on Wednesday ratcheted up the nation's wildfire preparedness level one notch to the second highest level. There are five levels

THE ROSECREST fire burns around Herriman Utah Friday. Officials say the wildfire has burned at least two homes and threatens 200 more in the foothills around Herriman, southwest of Salt Lake City. No injuries are immediately reported. in all, and ever since it hit No. 3, staffers say it's been "a beehive of activity." This makes for only the third time in the last 20 years the nation has reached this level by late June, with the others coming in 2008 and 2002, another highly destructive year for wildfires in Colorado and the Southwest. "This is one of the busier June's we've had in quite a while," said Kari Boyd-Peak, a NIFC spokeswoman in Boise, Idaho. She said that while all resources requested are currently being provided to tackle existing fires, shortages can't be ruled out if the weather doesn't cooperate. "If conditions stay this way, and we get more fires, and these get worse, we could get to that point soon," she said. Nationally, 60 percent of teams that handle dangerous, complex fires have been dispatched. Of roughly 15,000 firefighting personnel nationwide — including everyone from the people on crews digging the actual fire lines to public information officers — more than 10,400 have been deployed. Colorado's High Park Fire in Larimer County, where flames have destroyed more than 300 structures, is requiring the most manpower, with more than 1,100 personnel and 79 fire engines, along with aircraft. The Waldo Canyon Fire near Colorado Springs has more than 1,100 firefighters attempting to stop the flames from burning more homes, with almost 350

homes estimated lost by late Thursday. The Forest Service on Friday was also training a Fort Carson Army battalion to serve as firefighters to boost the number of crews available nationwide. In New Mexico, more than 200 firefighters continue working on record-setting blazes that have been burning for weeks — one that has destroyed more than 240 homes and another that has blackened 465 square miles. Despite some criticism, Harbour said the U.S. Forest Service has been working to position resources where they're needed most. There's a difference between what incident commanders want and what they need to fight a fire effectively, he said. For example, a commander's order for 10 hot shot crews — among the most elite firefighters — might be filled instead with a mix of hot shots and initial attack crews, which can be just as formidable but with less experience. Nineteen large air tankers, 170 helicopters and a number of single-engine air tankers are assigned to wildfires across the region. A large DC10 air tanker capable of carrying 11,700 gallons of fire retardant is also on call, and four military C-130 tankers are positioned to cover the blazes burning near Colorado Springs and Fort Collins as well as the entire Front Range if more fires break out. To date, the C-130 tankers have dropped 138,400 gallons of retardant in the region.

Their primary focus has been the Waldo Canyon Fire. On Friday, the U.S. Forest Service activated the four remaining C-130 tankers to help in Colorado and elsewhere. Overall, there have been fewer fires and less acreage burned for the first six months of the year than there was for the same period last year. Some states are seeing fires earlier this year, but Harbour said there are still resources in reserve. "With over 10,000 firefighters in the Forest Service and the ability to get over 700 aircraft of all types, we're feeling cautiously confident when you look at the season as a whole," he said. Once an incident commander, Harbour said he understands the urgency felt by the firefighters on the ground and the heartache of residents who are watching their homes burn. Homes can be rebuilt and more firefighters and pilots can be trained for future seasons, but Harbour said land managers and communities that border dry forests and woodlands need to get to the root of what's resulting in fires that are making 10-mile runs in one day or doubling in size overnight. "We've got to ask ourselves why these kinds of fires are happening and why so many homes are burning," he said. "And we've got to remind ourselves that response — a good, strong, effective and aggressive response — is just one part of the triangle."

Egypt president vows to fight

Chronic speeder CAIRO (AP) — In front of shoots marbles tens of thousands of cheering supporters, Egypt’s first Isat van lamist and civilian presidentELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say a man has been charged with assault for using a slingshot to fire glass marbles at a speed camera van. Authorities say Bruce Lawrence May of Ellicott City was arrested Tuesday. The 50-year-old Lawrence was also charged with destruction of property and reckless endangerment. He was released on $3,000 bond. Howard County police say that at about 5 p.m. Tuesday, the van was near Manor Woods Elementary School when the operator heard something hit the side of the vehicle. The operator saw a minivan pass and saw the driver with a slingshot fire another projectile at the speed camera van. Police say that May had received two speed camera violations recently.

elect vowed Friday to fight for his authority and symbolically read an oath of office on Cairo’s Tahrir Square on the eve of his official inauguration. Mohammed Morsi’s strongly worded speech was a show of defiance as he gears up to power struggle with the country’s ruling generals who passed a constitutional declaration taking over major presidential powers in the days before election results were announced after a bitter campaign. “Everybody is hearing me now. The government, the military and the police ... No power above this power,” he said as the crowd roared. “I reaffirm to you I will not give up any of the president’s authorities. I can’t afford to do this. I don’t have that right to that.” “You are the source of legitimacy and whoever is protected by anyone else will lose,” he told his supporters.

He also addressed popular demands, vowing to work for the release of Omar AbdelRahman, the blind sheik jailed in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York landmarks, as well as detained Egyptian protesters facing military tribunals. “I will do my best to free all detainees, including Dr. Omar Abdel-Rahman,” he said, pointing to a group of protesters holding a poster of the spiritual leader of men convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Supporters have called for the sheik to be repatriated to Egypt on humanitarian grounds. Morsi, a 60-year-old U.S.trained engineer, narrowly defeated Ahmed Shafiq, Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister and a former air force general, in a runoff race that deeply polarized the nation. Initially put forward as a back-up candidate for the Muslim Brotherhood, he addressed the crowd with a booming voice, flanked by several security guards. His victory has given Is-

lamists a new boost after they overcame decades of suppression and arrests under Mubarak’s secular regime to become Egypt’s most influential post-revolutionary political force. However, the military has fought to check the Brotherhood’s rise and maintain its hold on the reins of power. At one point he opened his jacket to show the crowd he wasn’t wearing a bulletproof vest, saying he “fears no one but God.” The speech ironically brought Republican Guard forces back to the square — a rare occurrence as government security forces have avoided the area to avoid provoking protesters angry over continued military influence. Many protesters had called for Morsi to hold his swearing-in ceremony in the square, the epicenter of mass protests that ousted Mubarak, but the military generals said it must be held in front of a high court, in the absence of a parliament. The ceremony was scheduled to be held Saturday.

However, he read an informal oath during his speech to the delight of the crowd. Many chanted “We love you Morsi” and “Oh marshal tell the truth, Morsi is your president, or not,” referring to the head of the ruling military panel Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi. The ruling generals have promised to transfer power to an elected president by Sunday. But they also have given themselves sweeping powers that undercut the authority of the president. The constitutional declaration — issued days before the winner of a runoff vote was announced — also designated the generals the country’s legislature in place of the disbanded parliament. The disbanding of parliament forced Morsi to take his oath in front of the Constitutional Court, which ruled against the parliament and whose judges were appointed by Mubarak. He also reached out to the liberal and secular activists who spearheaded last year’s uprising.

Pending home sales numbers Sidney’s Sonic rise for 13th consecutive month in top 300 “The fact that we’ve been able to attain gains in the number of homes put under contract for 13 consecutive months is not only a noteworthy achievement, but it’s a clear indication that we’re making progress in our effort to establish a stable, sustainable and growing housing marketplace in the Buckeye State.” Ohio’s May Pending Home Sales Index of 121.2, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, rose 19 percent from the May 2011 index of 101.8. An index of 100 is equal to the average

level of contract activity during 2008, which marked the end of five consecutive record years for existing home sales and the onset of the recession. Activity levels in 2008 are reflective of a historically healthy market. Our May 2012 pending sales index of 121.2 marks a 21.2 percent increase from the benchmark May 2008 index of 100. Additionally, the current results also best the PHSI marks posted in Ohio in 2009 (97.9) and 2010 (70.4). A pending sale or a sale “under agreement”

is when the buyer and seller agree on terms of the sale of a home and have a signed purchase and sale agreement, but have yet to close and be recorded as such. OAR, the largest professional trade association in the state with more than 26,000 members, is the only organization that compiles this statewide information from selected Multiple Listing Services each month. The tracking of “pending sales” provides reliable information about where the market is in coming heading months.

News Corp plans to split NEW YORK (AP) — Calling it the next logical step in an evolution over nearly six decades, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. (NYSE:NWS) said Thursday that it will split into two publicly traded companies. As part of the split, one company will operate as a newspaper and book publisher, and the other will be an entertainment company that will include the 20th Century Fox movie studio, the Fox broadcast TV network and the Fox News cable channel. While News Corp.’s board unanimously approved the split, it will need to review a more formal proposal on the matter. The deal is also subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals. News Corp. said it plans to hold a meeting of its shareholders sometime in 2013. The entire process may take a year to finalize. The Murdoch family, which controls nearly 40 percent of the voting shares in News Corp., is expected to maintain control of both companies. Rupert Murdoch will serve as chairman of both companies and CEO of the media and entertainment company. News Corp. said it plans to assemble management teams and boards for both companies over the next several months. Murdoch said in a conference call with investors that a split would result in two strong companies. “We’ve come a long way in our journey that began nearly 60 years ago with a single newspaper operating out of Adelaide,” Murdoch said, referring to the Australian newspaper that he inherited from his father that became the foundation for News Corp. The split of News Corp. is a symbolic turning point for Murdoch, 81. Through the years, Murdoch maintained a fondness for newspapers even as he purchased entertainment companies. In hearings last summer before U.K. lawmakers, he conceded that he regularly called newspaper editors under his employ with the greeting: “What’s doing?” Investors have al-

ready blessed the split. They’ve pushed the company’s Class B stock up 10 percent since the news of the plan broke early Tuesday. The stock edged down 15 cents to $22.26 in midday trading Thursday. Under the plan, News Corp. shareholders will receive one share of common stock in each new company for each share of News Corp. that they hold. Each company will maintain two classes of stock. Analysts relished the prospect that the faster growing entertainment segment would be valued more highly by new investors who weren’t willing to buy shares in a company being dragged down by a newspaper industry in decline. The publishing company, which will include The Wall Street Journal, is expected to be the much smaller of the two. Some analysts value it at about $5 billion, compared with the current market value for News Corp. as a whole of about $54 billion. Murdoch emphasized on the call that the split doesn’t mean he’s giving up on his publishing business. “Our aim is nothing less than this: To create the most ambitious, well-capitalized and highly motivated news and publishing company in the world,” Murdoch said. Still, many analysts had questions about which company would bear the financial risks of a probe in the U.K. into phone hacking and bribery. Besides legal costs, News Corp. also faces potential fines in the U.S. under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which punishes

companies that have bribed officials abroad. It is unclear if the split will appease the British telecommunications regulator, Ofcom, which is reviewing whether British Sky Broadcasting — of which News Corp. holds a 39 percent stake — is “fit and proper” to hold a broadcasting license. Ofcom is expected to wrap up its review later this summer.

British authorities have been probing allegations that News Corp. journalists at News of the World, which it closed last summer, and other newspapers hacked into phones and bribed public officials to gain exclusive information. ___ Business Writer Ryan Nakashima in Los Angeles contributed to this report.

PIQUA — Twenty students from the Upper Valley Career Center Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) program turned the dream of graduating from high school into a reality on June 2. The annual event was attended by Upper Valley Career Center and ABLE staff members, special guests from Western Ohio Chapter of the Korean War Veterans Association, family, friends, and special guest speaker Representative Richard Adams. Dr. Peg Morelli, ABLE director, welcomed those assembled and congratulated the graduates for achieving this milestone accomplishment. Special tribute was paid to five ABLE participants who by demonstrating superior work ethic, attendance, and academic success earned the honor of induction into the National Adult Honor Society. Those individuals include: Kaeli Black, Brandon Frew, Tina Neal, Beulah Quinn, Rakia Zammouri Adams challenged the graduates to continue from this day with a new dream. “This is a time of celebration . . . it’s the time to think in terms of what you want to accomplish next,” Rep. Adams said. He also encouraged them to consider continuing their education in order to expand job opportunities including technology advances, promotions, and new careers. Rep. Adams continued, “When you have the dream and work hard to accomplish it, the pride and excitement you feel today grows.” Adams and Upper Valley Career Center Adult Director Mike Shellabarger awarded the diplomas.

Cargill employees donated their time and efforts to celebrate National Volunteer Week recently, working on 11 different projects. A total of 58 employees, family and friends volunteered 111 hours in Cargill’s continued mission to enrich communities. Six volunteers braved a cold morning to participate in the Shelby County MS Walk at Tawawa Park. The event raises funds and awareness for the movement to create a world free of MS. “It was awesome to see such a great turnout even on a cold day,” said Cargill volunteer Steve Nystrom. Cargill volunteers had several opportunities to participate at the FISH Food Pantry & Thrift Shop to help accept and sort donations. “It takes a lot to run FISH and to keep donations coming and we really need volunteers. We appreciate Cargill employees donating their time,” said Becky Gillem of FISH. Another set of volunteer activities were cleaning equipment at the YMCA and sorting seasonal clothing at St. John’s Thrift Store.

DR. WALLACE: I need help. I am 15, and I am very overweight. I am a girl who is 5 feet 3 inches tall, and I weigh 180 pounds. I have been to the family doctor, and he said there is nothing wrong with me. I hate sports because the girls all laugh at me and I am too fat to participate. And, of course, no boy would go out with me. I don’t know what to do. Please help. — Nameless, Cedar Rapids, Iowa NAMELESS: It appears you suffer from overeating, a lack of proper exercise and a weak constitution. But talk is cheap! Action brings results. So let’s get started. First, see your family doctor again and ask him to suggest a healthy eating plan that suits

you and will help you eat foods you enjoy that are nutritious and lower calorie. Then get on it immediately. Enlist the family to help you follow it, without tempting you or always eating their best treats in front of you. Learn the calorie counts of your favorite foods and begin planning your meals carefully. Next, get moving! Daily exercise, beginning with just a short walk around the block, will become a pleasant routine and helps you burn calories. You can begin researching additional exercise ideas and add these gradually. I’m well aware that maintaining a healthy eating plan is one of the more difficult challenges that humans must endure, but it beats the alternative — that of being 15 years

(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a restless day, because you find it difficult to concentrate. Different topics and new ideas keep flashing through your mind. It’s just what it is. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might meet a new acquaintance today who is a bit unusual. Or someone you already know might say or do something that surprises you. It’s an interesting day! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) An authority figure might say or do something that makes you want to throw in the towel or rebel. Hey — don’t quit your day job. Cool your jets. YOU BORN TODAY You’re sensitive to the needs of others, which makes you giving and generous. You are surprisingly candid and open with others, even though you value your privacy. You always find it rewarding to make a positive contribution to society because this satisfies your idealism and your sense of nurturing. Work to construct or build something this year because your rewards soon will follow. Birthdate of: Dan Akroyd, actor/comedian; Liv Tyler, actress.


Parents need to be more patient with kids today; everyone is a bit on edge because of the buildup of energy before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Even the family dog can feel this! (Woof, woof!) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Cut others some slack at home today. Domestic arguments could break out because people feel the tension before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Don’t let this get you down. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Think before you speak today, because your knee-jerk reaction could get you in trouble. After all, the only thing that should be in hot water is a teabag, right? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) People are opinionated about money matters today, and this includes you. It’s best to postpone important discussions about salary and cash flow until Wednesday. (You’ll be glad you did.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Today the Moon is in your sign, at odds with fiery Mars. This means you are inflamed easily about issues! Count to five before you respond to others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be angry about something, but you feel you can’t show it. This is always tough. Don’t be hard on yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Squabbles between members of groups might break out today and create a bit of havoc. People are just reacting to the buildup of tension before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Relax. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a poor day to argue with authority figures. Whatever differences you have will only intensify today and tomorrow. At least wait until Wednesday to make your case. YOU BORN TODAY You have a wide range of feelings! You have a wonderful imagination and a strong fantasy life. You love to be friendly because you want harmony with others. You’re very aware of being responsible for yourself and taking care of your own needs. In the year ahead, a major change could take place, perhaps as significant as something that happened around 2003. Birthdate of: Margot Robbie, actress; Evelyn Lau, poet/novelist; Dave Thomas, food entrepreneur.


What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Sunday, July 1, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good day for adventure, primarily because that’s what you want to happen. You’re hungry for a change of scenery and something stimulating! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might be surprised by a gift of cash or a little perk or a favor from someone today. That’s because, in some way, you definitely can benefit from the wealth and resources of others. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Friends and partners are a bit unpredictable today, because everyone is in a restless mood. Someone might play a prank or surprise you in some way. (It’s not a boring day!) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) High-tech equipment might figure prominently in your day. Perhaps new electronics will be introduced where you work. Your daily routine will be interrupted by something.


LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) flirtations Surprise might make your day today. Ditto for unexpected invitations. However, parents should be extra vigilant about their kids, because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your children. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Something having to do with your home routine will be interrupted today. Small appliances might break down, or minor breakages could occur. Unexpected company might be at your door. Who knows? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a mildly accident-prone day, so pay attention to whatever you say and do. Slow down and be mindful. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Keep an eye on your money and possessions today, because you might find money or you might lose money.You also might break something that you own or misplace it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You feel impulsive and ready for a few thrills today.You want a little adventure in your life. Perhaps a short trip! CAPRICORN

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, July 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Avoid controversial subjects like politics and religion today, because everyone feels tension building up before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Keep your head down and your powder dry. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a poor day to discuss disputed inheritances or anything about shared property and insurance matters. People are too emotional to be objective and reasonable. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Patience is your only recourse today when dealing with friends and groups, as well as family members. People feel tense, irritable and intolerant. (Easy does it.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Do what you can to avoid arguments with co-workers today, because they will not benefit you or others. Anger serves no purpose other than to make everyone miserable. Hold your tongue. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)

have an idea how I can stop living in this fantasy world? I have had many unsuccessful attempts at solving the problem myself. — Nameless, Baltimore, Md. NAMELESS: Since you have successfully graduated from college, not all your time was spent in your “dream world.” The most important factor in avoiding the fantasy world is to stay active, both physically and mentally, in the real world. Spending more time interacting with friends and family would be a good start. Since you have had many unsuccessful attempts at solving the problem by yourself, it’s time you also had a chat with a professional therapist.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, June 30, 2012











HOROSCOPE Saturday, June 30, 2012 Friends could prove to be a blessing for you in the year ahead, both career-wise and socially. Their input might help you get a better job and/or introduce you to people with whom you’ll become close and who will expose you to many new, fun activities. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — It won’t hurt your image today to admit to not being able to do something. However, it would arouse the ire of others if you pretend to be able to do something that they want to but can’t. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Instead of treating certain fun, competitive activities for what they are — merely games — you might take things seriously and take some foolish risks. Stick to your comfort zone. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Respect the talents and abilities of others, but just because you can’t do some things that others can, don’t credit them with bigger assets than they have. It would unnecessarily make you feel inadequate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t spread things on too thick, and make sure you have all the facts before you speak up. Persons who usually take you at your word might challenge what you tell them. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you find yourself in the position of making a choice between paying off an old obligation and buying something new, you know it would be smarter to rid yourself of debt. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be careful, because even those who are usually supportive of you might not stand up for you. Plus, your enemies are likely to be more actively working against you than usual. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Make a list of your duties and try to eliminate them one at a time. If you allow things to pile up on you, chances are you will lose your footing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — All it will do is make both parties angry if you allow yourself to get caught in the middle of two warring friends. Stay out of it, no matter whom you think is right or wrong. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Success is possible, but only if you rely more upon yourself and less upon Lady Luck. Unfortunately, when you’ll need her the most, she might be cozying up to your opponent. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Tell it like it is, even if you think it might put you in a bad light in some people’s eyes. If you attempt to color the facts, it could make things far worse in other ways. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You might not be as sharp of a horse trader as the person you’re doing business with, so be extra careful. That individual may be trying to take the whole farm. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Since you do have a natural ability to easily see both sides of an issue, you can’t help but use it. However, if you become too obsessed with weighing and balancing everything, you could be rendered ineffective. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

June 30, 1937 The Board of Religious Education for the Sidney public schools is announcing a progressive program planned to be carried out during the 1937-38 school year. Uppermost in importance is the plan being made to have a full-time teacher for religious training in the public schools. The board is asking for the fullest cooperation from all of the churches, clubs and organizations of the city. ––––– The first air-conditioned display room in Sidney is being announced by Elmer Snyder’s Advanced Appliance store, having just completed the installation of the conditioning units. The local store is the dealer for the DelcoFrigidaire air conditioning units and they were installed to demonstrate the practicality of air conditioning in the home office or store display room. ––––– One of the oldest manufacturing companies in continuous operation in Sidney is to be found in the Slusser-McLean Scraper Company which was established in 1880 on the site where the first of their two plants now stands, along the old canal bank near the water works. This company was selected for the fourth article on reemployment because it has been a pioneer in scraper equipment manufacture. The unique feature about the company is that one

of the founders, Benjamin Slusser, a native of Shelby County, was the originator and inventor of the steel scraper and had the first patent on a steel scraper issued to him by the United States Patent office. The company is setting a new employment mark in its two plants. Eighty-one people are employed at the present time.

Mahan leads by 2 shots, Tiger close BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — A punishing golf course. Temperatures that topped 100. Hunter Mahan still managed to make Friday at Congressional feel like a breeze. Mahan finally had a good score to match the efficient way he has been swinging the club. He made seven birdies in the stifling heat for a 6-under 65, giving him a two-shot lead going into the weekend at the AT&T National as he goes after a PGA Tour-leading third win of the year. Chris Couch sought medical attention and struggled to finish in the oppressive conditions. One caddie had to stop after nine holes, and another vomited to the side of the 13th green from drinking too much water. Tiger Woods stayed in the game with a 68 in the morning, when it was still so hot that towels were used to wipe sweaty faces more than to clean clubs. He talked about the value of staying fit and strong to survive days like this. He was five shots behind. Mahan, though, has set himself apart for two days. "I hit a lot of good shots," said Mahan, who missed only two fairways and three greens. "I hit so many fairways and greens, I made it easy on myself. This is a pretty punishing golf course if you get off line a little bit. I put myself in some great spots to make putts. And I felt like I played well on the back, when it was getting really hot and you're getting a little bit more tired." Mahan was at 7-under 135. His two rounds fulfilled what his swing coach, Sean Foley, said Thursday when describing his ball-striking as "a laser show." Robert Garrigus had his sixth straight sub-par round at Congressional — that includes last year at the U.S. Open when he became a footnote in history as only the fourth American to break par all rounds of a U.S. Open — with a 67 and was two shots behind, along with Jimmy Walker and Brendon De Jonge, who each had a 69. Stewart Cink, who draped a towel over his head waiting his turn to putt on the 14th green, showed signs of a resurgence with a 68 that put him in the group three shots behind, along with Vijay Singh (70), Pat Perez (69) and Rod Pampling (67). Woods was at 2-under 140, in a tie for 11th. More telling than only 18 players who remained under par was the cut at 148. It was one shot higher than the cut for the U.S. Open last year at Congressional, and it was the highest score to make the cut at a regular PGA Tour event since 149 at The Barclays in 2009. Congressional was tough — fast and firm on the course, scorching in the air — but it was fair. Mahan twice had to save par over the last five holes. He came up short on the 14th, but he had a couple of options. With the pin all the way to the back behind a ridge, he could run it up the slope to the hole, or even play long and have it roll back to the hole. He chose to lag it to the hole, hit it thin, and got away with the slight miss when it rolled back to 2 feet. "I expected to hit it a little bit cleaner off the club face, but that how you shoot 65," he said. "Get good breaks like that." He was more pleased with the 17th, which he called the one loose swing of the day. Mahan missed the green to the right, but saved par. On the 18th, he ripped a tee shot and had sand wedge into the green to 12 feet for one last birdie.

CINCINNATI REDS pitcher Mike Leake (44) is congratulated in the dugout after hiittng a home run off San Francisco Giants

Matt Cain in the sixth inning of a baseball game Friday in San Francisco.

Leake homers, tosses complete game; Reds beat Cain, Giants SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mike Leake pitched a ninehitter for his first career complete game and homered off Matt Cain, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 5-1 on Friday night. Jack Cozart hit the first pitch of the game from Cain over the wall in left-center and, just like that, San Francisco’s franchise-record streak of four straight shutouts had ended. Jay Bruce added a two-run double in the first among his four hits to stake Leake (3-5) to a quick cushion as the Reds got to Cain early to snap a four-game road skid. Leake homered with two outs in the sixth, his second of the year. Cain (9-3), pitching at home in sold-out AT&T Park for the first time since tossing the 22nd perfect game June 13 against the Astros, had his career-best eight-game winning streak snapped. The right-hander allowed three runs in the first inning for the first time since June 24, 2010, at Houston. San Francisco’s pitching staff went 36 innings without allowing a run, beginning after Cain’s start at Oakland last Sunday and lasting until

his next outing. It was the longest scoreless innings streak in San Francisco history and second-longest to the franchise mark of 38 accomplished by the New York Giants in 1903 and ‘33. Bruce also hit an RBI double in the seventh that chased Cain, matching his career high with four hits for the fifth time he has done it. Cain’s 11 hits in 6 2-3 innings matched his most given up this year and the righthander lost for the first time in 11 starts since a defeat to Miami on May 1. He allowed five runs, struck out seven and walked one. While Cain has the perfecto to his name, it was everybody else in the rotation — Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner, in that order — involved in the remarkable string of shutouts. San Francisco also was the first team in major league history to blank four clubs when the opponent had begun the day in first place. Leake came out for the ninth and allowed Pablo Sandoval’s one-out home run before retiring Brandon Belt on a deep fly to center and strik-

ing out Brandon Crawford to end his impressive 111-pitch performance. Leake escaped the fourth on an inning-ending double play on which Sandoval, trying to break it up, reached his right hand around shortstop Cozart’s left leg to trip him up and keep him from turning it. Belt was initially called safe, then Reds manager Dusty Baker raced out to argue. The umpiring crew visited and overturned the call to interference, ending the inning. Brandon Phillips returned to the Reds lineup after he was scratched before Thursday night’s series opener because of continuing effects from the blow to the head he received during Wednesday’s 8-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. Baker said Phillips passed all concussion tests Friday. Phillips went 1 for 5 with a seventh-inning single and stolen base before scoring on Bruce’s second double. “He was trying hard to lobby to get back in the lineup,” Baker said. Leake singled in the second ahead of his homer. Joey Votto also contributed two hits for

the Reds, who finish the first half with this 11-game road trip. NOTES: Leake threw 76 pitches for strikes. His 37 hits over the last three seasons are most by any major league pitcher. ... Cain is 4-2 with a 2.01 ERA in eight home starts. ... A low-hovering blimp cause plenty of uneasiness for those watching it swirl in the wind just above the ballpark and near the center field light poles early in the game. At first pitch, the wind was 12mph blowing toward center. ... Baker managed the Giants’ 2002 World Series runner-up team that will be honored here Sunday. “It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years,” Baker said. “My son was 3 at the time. Now he’s 13.” Some players have already begun to arrive, including Benito Santiago and Pedro Feliz. Home run king Barry Bonds is scheduled to attend the festivities. ... Baker is 15-13 as a visiting manager at AT&T Park. ... The Giants called up RHP Brad Penny, signed to a minor league contract May 18 for his second stint with the organization, from Triple-A Fresno.

Tribe falls despite 16 hits BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cleveland Indians wasted a season-high 16 hits and twice gave away the lead, yet that wasn’t even the worst of it. Clearly, the most damaging aspect of Cleveland’s 9-8 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night was the injury that will sideline third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall from 4-6 weeks. Chisenhall fractured a bone in his right forearm after being struck by a pitch from Baltimore reliever Troy Patton. He was immediately removed from the game in the fifth inning and probably won’t return to action until August. “I had a bad feeling about it,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “It’s bad news for us, especially a young kid like him. It’s always tough seeing a young guy getting his feet wet, getting better and then all of a sudden, an injury like that.” Acta said Chisenhall will be sent back to Cleveland and

will probably undergo surgery next week. Indians starter Derek Lowe gave up seven runs, four earned, in 5 1-3 innings. He didn’t take the loss, but took the blame because the threerun homer he gave up to Matt Wieters put Cleveland in a 75 hole in the sixth inning. The ball landed on Eutaw Street, in front of the B&O Warehouse and far beyond the right-field wall. “When it hit the warehouse, I was pretty sure it wasn’t coming back,” Lowe said. “I take full responsibility for us losing. I threw the dumbest pitch I’ve thrown in a long time to Wieters. It was my call to throw a sinker inside. You have to make him hit the ball the other way. It was the single most frustrating pitch I’ve thrown all year.” Ryan Flaherty singled in the tiebreaking run in the seventh for the Orioles, who broke out of their offensive funk at the expense of Lowe and the Cleveland bullpen.

On a steamy night in which temperatures reached 100 degrees, both teams worked up a sweat circling the bases. Cleveland outhit Baltimore 16-10, but the Orioles scored just enough runs to secure their third win in 10 games. “It was a battle,” Wieters said. “We haven’t been able to come out on top of those, and we really worked to get that win.” Chris Davis started the Orioles’ seventh-inning uprising with a two-out single off Joe Smith (5-2). After Wieters walked, Flaherty delivered an RBI single to right. Xavier Avery hit his first major league homer in the eighth to make it 9-7. The Orioles went 3 for 12 with runners in scoring position after going 3 for 52 in that situation over their previous 10 games. It was the first time in 11 games that Baltimore scored more than three runs. “I was so proud of the guys

tonight. They just kept grinding,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “They were not going to be denied.” Matt Lindstrom (1-0) got the last out in the top of the seventh, Pedro Strop worked a perfect eighth and Jim Johnson earned his 23rd save despite giving up a ninth-inning run. Wieters and Cleveland’s Asdrubal Cabrera of the Indians both homered onto Eutaw Street. It was only the second time in the 21-year history of Camden Yards that two balls landed on Eutaw Street in the same game; Rafael Palmeiro did it twice on April 11, 1997. The Orioles trailed 5-4 before Wieters connected against Lowe in the sixth inning. The lead vanished in the seventh, when the Indians pulled even on an RBI double by Shelley Duncan and a runscoring double play. Duncan entered in the fifth as a pinch runner for Chisenhall.

Youth tournament deemed big success What may be recorded in history as the first ever youth tennis tournament in Shelby County was held recently as part of the 2012 Money Concepts Open. The event was for children ages ten and under and utilized the QuickStart format for play. Smaller courts, low compression tennis balls, shorter racquets, and an abbreviated scoring system are components of QuickStart play. Held at Lehman High School, players came from Sidney, Lima, and Wapakoneta. Participants were divided into two pools. The winner of each pool then competed against each other for first and second place trophies.

Winning Pool A was Courtney Sutton of Lima, while Pool B went to Conor O’Leary of Sidney. By a score of 7-3, 74, Sutton took the honors. The Open 10 and Under Division was the first competitive event for many of the youngsters. Michelle Bayliff, mother of participants Finnegan and Gavin Bayliff, remarked that, “As a parent, the event was great for helping my children understand tournaments and rules.” Lauren Chaney traveled from Lima to Sidney for her first experience at tournament play. Her enthusiasm to participate was reflected in her comment, “I was so excited, it seemed like a two

minute drive to Sidney.” David O’Leary and Greg and Priscilla Wilt of the Shelby County Community Tennis Association, tournament organizer, felt that this first effort at a youth division in the Open went extremely well. “Seeing the excitement of the children doubled that feeling,” Greg Wilt said. Support was given by Jim Curran, who coordinated the players from Lima and Wapakoneta, and Randy Klauss who assisted in setting up the courts. Cheryl Boyer of Money Concepts added, “It is great to have the young players participate and enjoy the experience of competitive tennis. Our youth are the future for tennis in Shelby County.”

Record number of players and spectators Four new divisions were added to the 2012 Money Concepts Open Tennis Tournament with most courts in full play throughout a weekend of excellent weather. Held June 22 through June 24 at Sidney High School, events were offered in Men’s Singles and Doubles, Women’s Singles and Doubles, and Mixed Doubles. First time participant, Jacob Eilerman of Anna said the tournament was “fun, competitive, and offered a chance to meet other local tennis enthusiasts.” Along with drawing a record number of participants, this year’s tournament also drew a record number of spectators watching the sport of tennis. In addition to Sidney and Shelby County, the tournament attracted players from Wapakoneta to Trotwood as well as from St. Paris to Celina. Tournament directors Greg and Priscilla Wilt and David O’Leary were well satisfied with the weekend event. “We are pleased with the growth again this year,” Greg Wilt said. “It was great to look out and see all the courts full.” “The play was friendly and an atmosphere of sportsmanship was evident,” said O’Leary. Former Sidney High School player Corinne Hohenstein was victorious over Kaitlin Snider of Uniopolis, 7-5, 6-4. Participant Rachel Roberts, a member of the Wapakoneta High School Tennis team, expressed her enthusiasm by saying, “It was a great tournament. It helps people with their game and is a fun learning experience.” In Men’s Doubles, the

father and son team of Von and Zach Clendenen won over local resident Chad New and his partner Kosal Tith of Troy, 62, 7-6 (7-4). Von commented after the tournament that, “ I have been playing competitive tennis for thirtysix years, and from the pre-tournament phone call, to the end, this was the best run event I have been in.” The Men’s Singles finals saw familiar winners as Austin Kleman, Sidney High School graduate, bested Sam Bollinger in the under 30 division, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, and Lehman grad Tim Ungericht of Quincy won over Von Clendenen, 7-6 (10-8), 6-3, in the over 30 division. Kleman, a tournament regular, felt that, “The tennis is well played, the tournament is expanding and all the players are very courteous.” Saturday saw a marathon match lasting nearly three hours between Jacob and Laura Eilerman and Dru Olding and Corinne Hohenstein. The competitors were evenly matched with scores of 7-6 (7-2), 5-7, 7-6 (7-3) with the team of Olding/Hohenstein still standing at its conclusion. Other tournament results are as follows: Women’s Doubles: Winner, Annette RossGray and Maggie Thomas of Trotwood; Runners-up, Chelsea Myers and Kaitlin Snider of Wapakoneta. Mixed Doubles: Winners, Christian Henderson and Kandis Sargeant of St. Paris and Sidney; Runners-up, Charles Beam and Annette Ross-Gray of Trotwood; Consolation, Corinne Hohenstein and Dru Olding of Sidney.

Men’s Doubles: Consolation, David Freytag and Scott Greve of Sidney over Charles Beam and Al Thomas of Trotwood, 6-4, 6-3. Men’s Singles under 30: Consolation, Patrick Ho of Sidney over Jacob Eilerman of Anna, 6-4, 7-5. Men’s Singles over 30: Consolation, Glenn Vanderhorst of Sidney over Phil Friemering of New Bremen, 6-2, 6-0. Women’s Singles: Consolation, Yvonne Jones of Trotwood. In addition to the tournament participants, many individuals, businesses, and organizations were instrumental in the success of the tournament, said the Wilts. Duane Gaier and the City of Sidney Parks and Recreation Department and Tony and Tambra Brown and the Sidney City Schools made sure the facilities were in good condition. Freytag and Associates provided the draw boards, Pippy Booth supervised on court play, Keith Kleman procured necessary equipment, and John Boedigheimer assisted at the officials’ table. The tournament directors said “You can’t run a successful tournament without a lot of great support. We appreciate the support of our tournament sponsor, Money Concepts Financial Planning Centre of Sidney, and the volunteers who helped make this tournament a success. We also can’t say enough about the players who participated. They were a tremendous group of people, who came to compete and have a good time. We look forward to next year and the continued growth of the tournament.”

And so they meet again

CLEVELAND CAVALIERS coach Byron Scott, left to right, Dion Waiters, Tyler Zeller, and general

manager Chris Grant answer questions during a news conference Friday in Independence, Ohio.

Scott thinks Waiters was draft’s second-best player BOB FINNAN FINNAN AP Exchange The Cavaliers were sitting in an enviable position in Thursday's NBA draft. They knew they were going to get one of the best players available. They had the fourth overall pick, after all. However, they felt they hit the jackpot in drafting Syracuse shooting guard Dion Waiters. "There's only one other player we would have (taken)," Cavs coach Byron Scott said. "That's the one that went No. 1 (Kentucky's Anthony Davis to the Hornets). "On my board, watching him and all those guys, he was the guy I was harping about (to Cavs general manager Chris Grant). Our whole group is excited about the talent this young man has." In Scott's opinion, the 6-foot-4, 221-pound Waiters was the secondbest player in the draft. The Cavs plan on

pairing Waiters in their starting backcourt next to point guard Kyrie Irving. "We have another guy who can create," Scott said. "We had one guy in Kyrie. That's a lot of pressure for one guy to handle. Now we have another guy who can share in that. He doesn't mind sharing it. He doesn't mind having the ball in his hand with the game on the line. He's not afraid to fail. That's the thing I love about him. He's a competitor and a tough kid." Waiters has some similarities with Irving's game. They both can create for themselves and others. They also both get to the basket. But once they get there, they have different ways in getting the job done. "They are different in that Dion is strong," Scott said. "He has a strong upper body. He can finish with authority. Kyrie has all the tricks." Scott said the Cavs weren't caught up in the fact Waiters didn't start

a game in his two years at Syracuse. "The fact the guy didn't start doesn't mean anything to me," he said. "The fact that he finished pretty much every game is the biggest thing that I looked at and the fact that he had the ball in his hands. There was no game that he was in where the moment was too big. He seemed to really like those situations." Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim isn't the easiest coach for whom to play. Waiters clashed at times with Boeheim. "Freshman year coming in, it was kind of hard, never coming off the bench in my life before until I got to Syracuse," Waiters said. "It made me mature as a man, and it really helped me out." Don't expect him to come off the bench with the Cavs. They didn't draft him No. 4 overall to be a role player. "With Dion, he knows he's going to have to earn that spot," Scott said. "But playing with

Kyrie, we think they can be a dynamic duo. Kyrie doesn't necessarily have to have the ball 99 percent of the time. He can sometimes rest on the offensive end and let this young man have the ball to create for himself and his teammates. " Waiters' strength is to score and get to the basket. His perimeter jumper is still a work in progress. "I've got to work on every aspect of my game," he said. "If they say I don't have a jump shot, it's up to me to go out there and get up 1,000 jump shots every day just to get it better." Waiters was the Big East's Sixth Man of the Year. So he went from sixth man to the No. 4 overall pick. "It hasn't really hit me yet, but it's something I've always dreamed about," he said. "I've worked very hard to get where I'm at, and this has only made me want to work that much harder and take my game to the next level."

Bumgarner one-hit Reds Thursday SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Madison Bumgarner's teammates had something special for him — a shower of beer and shaving cream, a celebration for his first career complete game and shutout. He was also one pitch away from something even more memorable. Bumgarner pitched a one-hitter, allowing only Ryan Hanigan's solid single leading off the sixth inning, as the Giants threw their franchise-record fourth straight shutout and beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 Thursday night. "It's nice to get a complete-game shutout,"

Bumgarner said. "But four straight shutouts? That's awesome." Bumgarner (10-4) struck out eight and walked two in winning his fifth straight decision. San Francisco moved alone into the NL West lead for the first time this year. "By the numbers, it's the best game I've thrown," Bumgarner said. "But I've felt better and gotten beaten up pretty bad. That's the way this game goes." The Giants became the 17th team to have four or more consecutive shutouts since 1918. The Baltimore Orioles did it most recently, with five

Sandoval said. "When they are throwing like that it's fun to play defense. You want to make the plays." Johnny Cueto (9-4) had his four-game winning streak halted. He allowed two earned runs and six hits in six innings. "You just hate for Johnny to lose like that," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It was a situation where he just got outpitched. On most occasions you give up two or three runs, you got a pretty good chance to win the game."

It also features the tournament's best defensive team against one of its most exciting attacking squads. Spain has not conceded a goal since that opening draw with Italy and hasn't been scored upon in nine elimination games at major tournaments. Balotelli, Antonio Cassano and Pirlo are leading one of Italy's top attacking teams in recent history. "We always just tried to play, I think that is our strength," said Prandelli, whose team is bidding to give Italy its second European title, the same number as Spain and France. "When we started off at this tournament, we were convinced that by working in a certain way we could become a proper team — not just a quality team, but also a team with the right spirit." Though Balotelli's selection had been in doubt due to troubles both on and off the pitch at Manchester City, the 21-year-old Italian of Ghanaian descent has scored three times at Euro 2012. "I waited a long time for this moment, especially because my mother came all the way here and I wanted to make her happy," he said after the victory over Germany. "This is the greatest evening of my life, but I hope Sunday will be even better," added the striker, who has a chance to finish as the tournament's top scorer with one more goal. "For the final my father is coming, too," he added. "So I hope to score . . ." Along with their players, the Azzurri also have an encouraging statistic on their side: Spain hasn't beaten Italy in a competitive match that didn't end in penalties since 1920. Spain's attack has featured a rotating cast of forwards, with attacking midfielder Cesc Fabregas usually being preferred to striker Fernando Torres. On Sunday, coach Vicente del Bosque is likely to repeat the 4-6 formation he first deployed against Italy on June 10.

straight in 1995. "I've seen a lot of things in this game but I've never seen that before," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "It's been an impressive run. That's hard to do." Angel Pagan, Pablo Sandoval, Gregor Blanco and Ryan Theriot each drove in a runs for the Giants, who have won four straight and six of seven to move into first place in the NL West for the first time since last Aug. 9. Melky Cabrera had two hits and reached base four times. "It's exciting stuff,"

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — And so they meet again at Euro 2012. This time, however, Spain and Italy are playing for the European Championship and a place in the history books. The Mediterranean rivals meet Sunday in Kiev's Olympic Stadium, three weeks after they drew 1-1 in their opening match of the tournament's group stage. As the defending champion and World Cup holder, Spain is bidding to win a third straight major title, cementing its place as one of the greatest national teams. It would also match Germany's record of three European Championship titles. Only the unpredictable Mario Balotelli and a surprising Italy team — orchestrated by Andrea Pirlo — stand between Spain and what many see as its destiny. Even Italy coach Cesare Prandelli reckons that Spain is the best bet to lift the trophy. "At the moment, even if I open my eyes, I am still dreaming," Prandelli said after his side's 2-1 victory over Germany in the semifinals, when Balotelli scored both goals. "Spain remain favorites because of the years of hard work that they have put in. They have been dominant in every game they've played so far." Spain hasn't lost in a European Championship since 2004 and has already matched West Germany as the only defending champion to return to the final after winning the World Cup. The West Germans managed it in 1976, but subsequently lost to Czechoslovakia following Antonin Panenka's famous chip shot in a penalty shootout. This final brings together teams with players brazen enough to have successfully copied Panenka's audacious spot kick during their penalty shootouts in the knockout rounds. Spain defender Sergio Ramos used it in the semifinal win over Portugal, after Pirlo employed it against England in the quarterfinals.

Edison schedules ‘Cruise in to College’ registration PIQUA — Edison Community College will have students “Cruise n to College,” during fall registration. The event is open to all new and returning students who are interested in signing up for fall classes. It will be held July 10 from 1 to 6 p.m. and July 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Piqua campus. There will be refreshments and door prizes. For this special event, the college is waiving the $20 application fee for all new students. “This is going to be a really fun event for our

new and returning students to attend,” said Stacey Bean, admissions coordinator for Edison. “We’ll have our full staff on hand to help answer any questions about the registration process, financial aid and career plans. This is also the one time out of the year that new students can apply to Edison without having to

pay the $20 fee.” New and returning students attending “Cruise in to College” will be able to get registered for upcoming fall semester classes, design a personalized educational plan, meet with advisers to discuss career and academic goals and learn about the financial aid process. Students new to Edison will also be able to complete the COMPASS assessment in reading, writing and math. The COMPASS assessment takes about two hours to complete.

Prospective students may schedule to take the test prior to the event by calling (937) 778-7850, or by taking the assessment on July 10 (starting anytime between 1 and 3:30 p.m.) or July 11 (starting anytime between 9 to 11:30 a.m.) Students who have previously completed college math and English, or who have qualifying ACT or SAT scores, may not need to take the COMPASS. For more information about the event and Edison Community College, go online to

Parfait graduates from Marine recruit training Marine Corps Pfc. Wesley E. Parfait, a 2010 graduate of Sidney High School,earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C. For 13 weeks, Parfait stayed committed during some of the world’s most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine instilled with pride, discipline and the core values of honor, courage and commitment, Marine officials said. Training subjects included close-order drill marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies. One week prior to graduation, Parfait endured The Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits’ minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.

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 and eventually fake 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.
