More storms hit county BY MIKE SEFFRIN Storms rolled in late Sunday afternoon as a weekend of storm clean-up continued following a massive power outage that hit the area Friday during a thunderstorm. Rain moved into Shelby County shortly before 5 p.m. with 70 mph winds reported. The storm also packed a punch with lightning strikes causing problems in the Sidney area. According to scanner reports, there was at least one home in Sidney which reportedly had been hit by lightning. There were other fires reported in the city and at 5:20 p.m., a box alarm was called for multiple structure fires. One was reported on the 700 block of Foraker Avenue and another was reported on 1768 Fair Oaks Drive. It was not known at press time the extent of the fires. There were also reports of funnel clouds spotted in northern Shelby County near Sidney-Freyburg Road and Southland Road and one possibly near Wells Road. There was no reported damage from the funnel clouds. The weekend storms also caused problems for the festivals in the county. The New Knoxville Independence Day celebration was slated to start at 4 p.m. on Friday just as the storm moved into the area. According to Kim Frederick, Park Association treasurer, the bad weather closed the festival that night. “We were able to run all day on Saturday and we decided to hold the festival on Sunday,” said Frederick. “Saturday was normal and business was good.” A couple of tents were lost during the storm on Friday but no equipment was lost and no one was injured said Frederick. The fireworks show was still held on Saturday and Friday night’s band played on Sunday. The festival was cut short again on Sunday as another storm moved through the area. “We’re glad we got one good day out of it,” said Frederick.

DREW PELFREY (left) of Botkins, looks for more lights to attach to his truck with the help of Tractor Supply Company employee Cory Judy, of Jackson Center, in the Tractor Supply Company Store Sunday. With electricity still out, shoppers had to use flashlights to see where they were going. The store sold out of generators Saturday but anticipated receiving a large shipment Sunday. “Everyone had a great time and most importantly, no one was hurt.” The Fort Loramie Liberty Days festival was also held on the weekend and according to committee member Tony Poeppleman, things were shuffled but the festival still had a good turnout. “The storm slowed things down,” said Poeppleman. “We lost power but were able to find generators and got the bands started a little late.” One entertainment tent was lost during the storm, which also contributed to the bands’ starting late on Friday. Power was restored on Saturday and the Miss Independence contest was held Saturday morning. The volleyball tournament was canceled but Saturday brought a good crowd, said Poeppelman. “Loramie is always good at making the best of the situation,” said Poeppelman. “Committee members were able to work through the difficulties. This is the first time since I’ve been on the committee that we’ve had the bad weather, but you make the best of a bad situation.” Saturday was a day of contrasts in the wake of a mas-

sive power outage that hit the area Friday during the thunderstorm. The buzz of chainsaws could be heard in many neighborhoods, but many businesses were shuttered and silent, with signs posted on their doors that they were closed because of the power outage. The situation had improved by Sunday morning as power had been restored to many areas. At the Kroger store in Sidney, power was back on about 4:45 p.m. Saturday, and store manager Millie Terrell said Sunday morning that they planned to reopen about 10 a.m. and would resume regular hours. Kroger had not had electricity since the storm hit Friday afternoon. “We were without power for 26 hours,” she said. Terrell said they weren’t able to save all the refrigerated food in the store. There were reports that a number of refrigerated trucks were brought in to store some of the produce and other items. She declined to say how much was lost. Terrell said she had dealt

with power outages in the past, but not at the Sidney store. Her experience was with an outage caused by an ice storm. She said she preferred dealing with the cold rather than the heat. “It’s a lot better when its 2 degrees out,” she said. At the height of this outage, Kroger had 43 stores without power out of a total of 109 stores in the Dayton area, Terrell said. Customers will be glad that Kroger is back open. Many came to the locked doors “the whole time we were out,” Terrell said. Across the street from Kroger, Perkins restaurant also had reopened. In fact, the restaurant was so busy that personnel didn’t have time to comment for this story Sunday morning. Hampton Inn on the southwest side of Sidney near Interstate 75 was one of the lucky businesses that were never without power. “We sold out the last two nights,” said Sheri Sturgeon, pantry manager, Sunday morning. “We’ve been extremely busy. We probably turned away 60 people the See STORM/Page 16A

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Guinness World Records has declared that a huge crocodile blamed for deadly attacks in the southern Philippines is the largest in captivity in the world. The giant reptile has brought pride, fear, tourism revenues and attention to the remote town where it was captured. The saltwater crocodile named Lolong, which was captured last September in Bunawan town in Agusan del Sur province, measures 20.24 feet (6.17 meters) and weighs more than a ton, Guinness spokeswoman Anne-Lise Rouse said in a statement seen Sunday.

Judge blocks law at the state’s only clinic to be an OB-GYN with privileges to admit patients to a local hospital. Such privileges can be difficult to obtain, and the clinic contends the mandate is designed to put it out of business. A clinic spokeswoman, Betty Thompson, has said the two physicians who do abortions there are OB-GYNs who travel from other states. The clinic, Jackson Women’s Health Organization, filed a lawsuit seeking to block the law. The suit says the admitting privileges requirement is not medically necessary and is designed to put the clinic out of business.

700K without power after storms CINCINNATI (AP) — National Guard troops headed out Sunday to check on people who might need help, and federal aid trucks rolled out carrying water as nearly 700,000 Ohio homes and businesses remained without power two days after severe storms swept through the state. President Barack Obama late Saturday declared a federal emergency in Ohio. His action followed a request by Gov. John Kasich, who had declared a state emergency and called out the National Guard. Federal EmerManagement gency Agency officials worked Sunday with state officials, the American Red Cross and other relief workers to determine the biggest needs and where to take water, generators and other aid. Severe storms that swept the state Friday evening knocked out power to 1 million customers. Kasich called the situation “extremely serious” because of a continued heat wave. Restoration could take days for some residents. Cooling centers and shelters opened across the state. At The PlainsAthens Community

Guard troops were launching door-to-door checks in the Columbus area and the Dayton area in southwest Ohio. They were initially focusing on retirement communities and other neighborhoods with large numbers of older people, young children and people with medical conditions to make sure they have access to water and medications and know that air-conditioned cooling centers are available. Several cities and local governments opened cooling centers, as did churches, libraries and schools. The Red Cross opened cooling centers and 24-hour shelters across Ohio, from Lima in the northwest to Portsmouth along the Ohio River to Cambridge in eastern Ohio. Andrews said Kasich met with the Guard troops before they began Sunday. Troops could be sent to other areas, if needed.

AEP says it was Ohio’s worst storm since the state was battered in 2008 by remnants of Hurricane Ike. Out-ofstate reinforcements have been limited by big needs in Washington D.C. and neighboring states that were also hit by storms. More than 3 million people in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and other areas were without power Sunday morning. Ohio officials said Sunday they knew of only one confirmed storm death. A 70-yearold woman died Friday evening in Muskingum County when a barn collapsed after she had gone to check on animals during the storm. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign pitched in Sunday, accepting donations of water, flashlights and other items at its state h e a d q u a r t e r s. Spokesman Chris Maloney said a campaign bus would be diverted to delivering donations to hard-hit areas.

WWII veteran’s dog tags found near Rome the dog tag for an American soldier from World War II. It belonged to Sgt. Mike Army Baranek, an Akron South High School graduate who died at age 64 in 1980, when he was living in Cuyahoga Falls.

Baranek, an Ohio Edison retiree, took part in several battles in Europe with the 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment. He fought in Italy and was wounded twice. The dog tag is back in

Cuyahoga Falls with his widow, Nellie Baranek, 95, sent to her by the Italian gardeners Olga Romagnolo and her friend, known only as Simone. Its next journey will take it to another battle-

field of sorts. The dog tag will be sent to Canada, where the veteran’s granddaughter, Tammy Mahoney, 41, will clasp it as she receives chemotherapy and radiation treatment for breast cancer in

Niagara Falls, Ontario. "I was very close to him," said Mahoney, a Stow-Munroe Falls High School graduate and mother of three children. "By having this near me, hopefully it will get me through this."

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Monday, July 2, the 184th day of 2012. There are 182 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 2, 1937, aviator Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to make the first round-theworld flight along the equator. On this date: ■ In 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution saying that “these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States.” ■ In 1812, Connecticut Gov. Roger Griswold declared his state’s militia would not serve in the war against Britain, reflecting New Englanders’ opposition to the conflict. ■ In 1862, during the Civil War, Confederate forces led by Gen. Robert E. Lee withdrew to Richmond, Va., after driving back Union Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan’s troops. ■ In 1881, President James A. Garfield was shot by Charles J. Guiteau at the Washington railroad station; Garfield died the following September. (Guiteau was hanged in June 1882.) ■ In 1912, the Democratic National Convenin Baltimore tion nominated New Jersey Gov. Woodrow Wilson for president. ■ In 1926, the United States Army Air Corps was created. ■ In 1961, author Ernest Hemingway shot himself to death at his home in Ketchum, Idaho. ■ In 1962, the first Walmart store (called “WalMart Discount City”) was opened in Rogers, Ark., by Sam Walton and his brother, James. ■ In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law a sweeping civil rights bill passed by Congress. ■ In 1978, Andy Rooney delivered his first commentary on CBS’ “60 Minutes” in which he criticized people who keep track of traffic fatalities on holiday weekends. ■ In 1982, Larry Walters of San Pedro, Calif., used a lawn chair equipped with 45 heliumfilled weather balloons to rise to an altitude of 16,000 feet; he landed eight miles away in Long Beach. ■ In 1997, actor James Stewart died in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 89.

‘Ted’ beats ‘Mike’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s both a bear and bull market for Hollywood. The bear is “Ted,” Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane’s comedy for Universal Pictures about a talking teddy bear, which opened as the No. 1 movie with $54.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. And the bulls are baring it in the Warner Bros. release “Magic Mike,” Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh’s malestripper tale that debuted a strong No. 2 with $39.2 million. The two new movies were backed by a deep bench, with Pixar Animation’s Disney fairy tale “Brave” holding up well at No. 3 with $34 million in its second weekend.

Power outages could last for days FRANCONIA, Va. (AP) — A day after seeking refuge at shopping malls and movie theaters, hoping the lights would be back on when they returned, 3 million residents faced a grim reality Sunday: stifling homes, spoiled food and a looming commute filled with knocked-out stoplights. Two days after storms tore across the eastern U.S., power outages were forcing people to get creative to stay cool in dangerously hot weather. Temperatures were forecast to top 100 degrees in many stormstricken areas, and utility officials said the power will likely be out for several more days. “If we don’t get power tonight, we’ll have to throw everything away,” Susan Fritz, a mother of three, said grimly of her refrigerator and freezer. Fritz came to a library in Bethesda, Md., so her son could do school work. She charged her phone and iPad at her local gym. The storm was blamed for 14 deaths, most from trees falling on homes and cars. Meanwhile, Coast Guard officials say they have suspended the search for a man who went missing early Saturday while boating during the storm off Maryland. The bulk of the damage was in West Virginia, Washington and the capital’s Virginia and Maryland suburbs. At least six of the dead were killed in Vir-

‘Unreal’: Residents tour blaze devastation COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Melted bowling balls in the front yard were among the strange sights that met C.J. Moore upon her return Sunday to her two-story home, now reduced to ashes by the worst wildfire in Colorado history. “You wouldn’t think bowling balls would melt,” she told The Associated Press by phone from the scene in her Mountain Shadows neighborhood, where she was among residents who were allowed temporary visits to areas most affected by the fire. More than a week after it sparked on June 23, the Waldo Canyon fire was still being attacked by some 1,500 personnel. But crews working grueling shifts through the hot weekend made progress against the 26-square-mile fire, and authorities said they were confident they finally had built good fire lines in many areas to stop the spread of the flames. So far, the blaze, now 45 percent contained, has damaged or destroyed nearly 350 homes. It was just one of several still burning in the West, where parched conditions and searing heat contributed to the woes facing crews on hundreds of square miles across Utah, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.

In Colorado Springs, a line of cars a mile long queued up at a middle school checkpoint, where police checked the identification of returning residents and handed them water bottles. While searching for her great-grandmother’s cast-iron skillets, Moore marveled at the juxtaposition of what burned and what hadn’t. The bowling balls had been garden decorations. “To find my mail in my mailbox, unscathed. It’s just unreal. Unreal,” she said. “Bird baths are fine. Some of the foliage is fine.” Three neighbors’ homes were unscathed. Only concrete remained of other homes, including hers. Cars were burned to nothing but charred metal. “Good Lord! I’ve never seen anything like this. And thank God there was nobody there. Thank God there were no people here. There would have been no been no hope.,” Moore said. Not far away, Bill Simmons and his wife, Debbie Byes, returned to their trilevel, passive-solar stucco home and found no damage — just some ashes in the driveway. “The water and electric’s back on. You know, we’re good to go. We’re feeling pretty happy about it at the moment,”

Simmons said by phone. “We’re feeling pretty sad for our neighbors and pretty lucky for ourselves. It’s been a real sobering experience.” Authorities said they would lift more evacuation orders Sunday night, bringing the total number of people who remain blocked from their homes down to 3,000 from more than 30,000 at the peak of the fire. Rich Harvey, incident commander for Waldo Canyon, said crews continue to make good progress. “We’re cautiously optimistic,” he said Sunday morning. “We still remain focused on things that could go wrong.” Authorities are still trying to determine the cause of the fire, which so far has cost $8.8 million to battle. Dangerous conditions had kept them from beginning their inquiry, but investigators were able to start their work on Saturday. More than 150 National Guard soldiers and airmen helped Colorado Springs police staff roadblocks and patrol streets. A “bear invasion” confronted a few mountain enclaves west of Colorado Springs. The scent of trash had enticed black bears pushed out of their usual forest habitat by fire.

Oil and politics are ancient Babylon’s new curse BABYLON, Iraq (AP) — Nowadays it seems that Babylon just can’t catch a break. Once the center of the ancient world, it has been despoiled in modern times by Saddam Hussein’s fantasies of grandeur, invading armies and village sprawl. Now come two more setbacks for the city famous for its Hanging Gardens and Tower of Babel: Parts of its grounds have been torn up for an oil pipeline, and a diplomatic spat is hampering its bid for coveted UNESCO heritage status. The pipeline was laid in March by Iraq’s Oil Ministry, overriding outraged Iraqi archaeologists and drawing a rebuke from UNESCO, the global guardian of cultural heritage. Then Iraq’s tourism minister blocked official visits to the

site by the World Monuments Fund, a New York-based group that is helping Babylon secure a World Heritage site designation after three rejections. It’s payback for an unrelated dispute with the U.S. over the fate of Iraq’s Jewish archives, rescued from a waterlogged basement after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion and taken to the U.S. “I will make Babylon a desolate place of owls, filled with swamps and marshes. I will sweep the land with the broom of destruction,” God warns in Isaiah 14:22-23. Today desolation and destruction are all too evident. Uncontrolled digging, paving and building have resulted from Saddam Hussein’s heavy-handed attempt to replicate the splendor of a city dating back nearly 4,000 years.

Since his downfall foreign troops have camped in parts of Babylon’s 10 square kilometers (four square miles). Growing villages are spilling onto its grounds and rising groundwater threatens the ancient mud brick ruins in the roughly 20 percent of its area that has been excavated over the past century. “It’s a mess and there are a load of problems,” said Jeffrey Allen, a consultant for the World Monuments Fund. “A lot of this feeling you get from a major archaeological site is missing from Babylon.” Babylon, straddling the Euphrates River some 90 kilometers (55 miles) south of Baghdad, was both a testament to human ingenuity and a symbol of false pride and materialism. It produced two of the major kings of antiquity — Ham-

murabi, author of one of the world’s oldest written legal codes, and Nebuchadnezzar II, conqueror of Jerusalem in 597 B.C. With towering temples and luxurious palaces, Babylon was transformed by Nebuchadnezzar into the largest city of its time. His Hanging Gardens, according to legend a multilevel horticultural gift to his homesick wife, was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Babylon is mentioned dozens of times in the Bible, which tells the story of Nebuchadnezzar’s destruction of the Jewish temple and enslavement of the Jews. Pop lyrics were inspired by the verse capturing the Jews’ pain of exile: “By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion” (Psalms 37-1).

Summer gardening chores are many BY JUDY FRILLING Now that the season of summer has arrived, we can sit back and enjoy the work we have done all of spring. But wait, there is a list of things that need to be done this season as well. After their flowers have faded, it time to divide irises and other spring bloomers. Bulbs can be propagated by removing small bulblets or offsets that form at the base of the parent bulb. These small bulbs take two or three years to mature into plants that flower. Place offsets in rich, light soil for their development. This same procedure should be followed for plants that form from corms, such as gladiolus. Many lilies can be multi-

plied by removing scales from the mature bulb. Dust the scale with a fungicide and place, base end down, in a moist growing medium in a warm, protected area. Bulblets will form at the base of the scale. In one to four years, these bulblets will grow and be ready to flower. Tuberous and rhizomes plants can be dug up and the tubers and rhizomes separated. In separating, each must have a segment of the crown that

contains at least one eye or bud. So you’ll have them in time for fall planting, order spring bulbs and cool-weather veggie seeds such as onions, peas, carrots and lettuce. Conduct daily insect pest patrols. Handpick the bad bugs such as worm and horned aphids, dropping them into soapy water, and leave the beneficial bugs such as lady bugs and lace wing alone. Also, squish egg caches you find on leaf undersides and along plant stems. Remember, birds can help with bug patrol. Be sure your garden gets at least one inch of water weekly, and use plenty of mulch and weed regularly to conserve water. Now is the time to get

your rain barrels used. I made mine out of 55-gallon barrels with a spigot at the bottom that is connected to hose and seeping hose. It works to paint the outside of the barrel with dark paint to prevent algae buildup in the barrel which can clog the hoses. It helps the flow of water to elevate the barrels 2 feet higher than ground level. Regularly cut faded or spent perennial flowers encourage more to blooming, while snipping observe for disease and pest damage. Keep up with the harvest as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and other crops come on. Be sure you have ample supplies for canning and freezing produce on hand. Remember to share with your neighbors espe-

cially the elderly and local food pantries for those without personal resources. Prop up any overloaded branches in the orchard, and after raspberries and blackberries wind down for the season, cut back and remove canes that bare fruit. You should flag any individual plants that exhibit traits that you like so you can collect seeds in the fall. Keep the seeds dry and cool during the winter for February or March planting in seed pots for spring planting. Of course, labeling is important using date and plant species’ name. Often seeds can last a couple of years before planting and remain viable.

Pick any herbs or flowers to preserve, bundle securely and hang them upside down in a dark, dry, well-ventilated area. When harvesting, cut no more than one third of the individual plant at a time. Pressing flowers and leaves now can offer very nice card crafting for the coming year, adding a touch of your personal garden to share with others. July 24 and July 28, the Shelby County Master Gardeners are having demonstration and talks on gardening at the fair in the Community Building (times to be announced). July 28, there will be children’s crafts provided by the SCMG at 3 and 7 p.m. The writer is a Shelby County Master Gardener.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, July 2, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, July 3, 2012 ARIE (March 21 to April 19) You feel pressured to make a choice between the demands of home and family and the demands of your job or your career today. It’s the Full Moon, and this is classic. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be careful, because the Full Moon today makes this an accident-prone day for your sign. Accidents don’t have to happen, but they will if you are distracted. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Financial pressures might create some stress for you today due to the Full Moon. You will feel this especially if you owe money, and who doesn’t? CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today, the only Full Moon that is opposite your sign all year is taking place. This is why you will feel some tension with partners and close friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) At work today, cut others some slack. People can feel the tension of today’s Full Moon, but it will be easy for you if you’re patient and easygoing with others. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relationships with others in group situations could be tense today because of the Full Moon energy. If you want to keep the peace, don’t try to be right and don’t criticize others. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Like Aries, you’re pulled between the demands of home versus the demands of your career. However, it appears you cannot ignore your career right now, can you? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because the Full Moon energy will trigger arguments. Situations could escalate out of hand in a New York minute. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You have a strong desire to improve yourself now — to be a better person. Don’t worry about earnings, cash flow or money today; these worries will quickly disappear. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Today the only Full Moon all year in your sign is taking place. This is why you might feel a bit edgy with others or impatient. (Cool your jets.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Parents will have to be patient with children, because today’s Full Moon could make everyone a bit cranky. Romance could be a bit rocky as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Avoid domestic arguments today by demonstrating patience with family members. Harmony and peace at home is a wonderful thing, so why destroy it? YOU BORN TODAY You’re a keen observer of life and conditions around you. You chronicle events, keep journals and make notes. In part, this is your desire to learn the truth. Philosophical by nature, you want to know more about everything, especially society and what makes people tick. A lovely, social year ahead awaits you. All your relationships will be blessed. Birthdate of: Patrick Wilson, actor; Audra McDonald, singer/actress; Tom Cruise, actor. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

alopecia areata is in the short run, there is high hope of complete restoration of hair in time. Around 50 percent will have hair regrowth within a year even if no treatment is given. Treatments exist to speed the healing process. One is injection of a high-potency cortisone drug, like triamcinolone, into the bald patch. Another treatment consists of applying an allergen directly to the bald spots. The reaction it produces leads to hair regrowth. The allergen often chosen is DPCP,

diphenylcyclopropenone. These are only two of the options open to alopecia areata patients. Hair follicles retain the capacity to regenerate. Complicated alopecia areata can affect the entire scalp and body hair. These are not common instances, when you consider the entire population of sufferers of this malady.

July 2, 1912 At a meeting of the Retail Merchants Association last evening a resolution passed requesting the business men of the city to close on July Fourth and enjoy a holiday the entire day. ——— Bonds of the Fort Loramie-Covington extension of the Western Ohio Railway must sell at the rate of not less than 90 cents on the dollar. Such is the ruling made by the State Utilities Commission to which the proposition to sell the bonds at the rate of 80 cents on the dollar was recently presented.

75 Years July 2, 1937 The new Seagraves 1000 gallon pumper was given a real workout this afternoon, when it shot a stream of water over the court house tower, in a novel test put to it by the local fire department. The new piece of equipment during the past few years has been given a series of tests and has responded in splendid fashion. The Underwriters official test report will probably not be available until next week. ——— cereRededication monies for the St. Jacob’s Lutheran Church of Anna to be held on the 11th of July are to be made impressively beautiful, and the congregation is planning the day to be one of joyous thanksgiving. The Rev. Edward Schramm, editor of the Lutheran Standard, will deliver the morning sermon. ——— Fire yesterday afternoon destroyed the Lake Ridge Hotel at Indian Lake, causing a loss estimated at more than $20,000, despite efforts of firemen from four communities to subdue the flames. Bellefontaine, Lakeview, Russells Point, and Belle Center firemen were called to the scene.

50 Years July 2, 1962 Prospect of rain may have averted an appeal to state agricultural officials to have Shelby County classed as a farm “disaster” area, it was learned today. Dur-

ing the morning hours, a few sprinkles of rain fell in Sidney and nearby. Chief damage, it was said, has resulted from the drying up of pasture lands. Grass, it was said, has failed to grow after recent hay cutting. Corn reportedly is in need of rain, but agricultural officials said the damage to that crop is not as great now as would result from drought later on. ——— Paul J. Steinke, of the Steinke Insurance Agency, Botkins, was one of 21 agents of the Fidelity Life Association recently honored by the company by being awarded membership in its “300 Club”. A plaque, representative of this membership, was presented to the Botkins man by B.C. Dahlman, vice president of the company, at a sales seminar held at Cedar Point, attended also by Mrs. Steinke.

25 Years July 2, 1987 The City of Sidney will have a new fire prevention officer. Robert “Frog” Guilozet will take over the post from retiring Steve Bashore. Mr. Guilozet started with the Sidney Fire Department in 1982. ——— The Sidney Planning Commission is considering permitting the building of a family recreation center for Honda of America. The 6,000 square foot structure will be located on Fairington Drive in Sidney. Commission members raised concerns about the parking lot configuration. ——— The Sidney Jaycees will once again see to it that we have a wonderful Fourth of July.

She sends boxes of cheap items she picks up at her local dollar store — household knickknacks, toys, kitchen gadgets, plastic trinkets and costume jewelry. It’s always things we neither need nor use, and the postage probably costs more than the items in those boxes. Abby, I don’t like it. Our home is already jammed with too much stuff. I have told my wife I want her sister to stop sending all that junk. Of course, she doesn’t want to hurt her sister’s feelings, so she says nothing.

I have threatened to tell Jenny myself, but I know that would be a mistake. I don’t interact with her and her husband anyway, and we don’t communicate well. What can I do? — STUFFED WITH STUFF IN OREGON DEAR STUFFED: You can’t “do” anything because this is something your wife is going to have to deal with. Diane should tell Jenny that the two of you have reached a point in life where you are no longer able to accept things because you have nowhere to put them, and are now in the process of clearing out items you no longer use. She should tell her sister that when she wants to reach out, please do so on the Internet or pick up the phone. However, if Sissy refuses to take the hint, you and your wife should look for someplace to donate the unwanted items. A thrift shop, church sale, women’s shelter or children’s hospital would be ideal — if Diane agrees, that is.

SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — Dale Fjordbotten is a proud "My Little Pony" fan, with the shiny blue body suit and yellow lightning bolt, blue wings and blue tail to prove it. Like many “Bronies" boys and men who like the cartoon “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” — the 25-year-old college student turned out over the weekend for “BronyCon Summer 2012" at the Meadowlands Exposition Center, which drew 4,000 men, women, boys and girls,

many in colorful wigs and costumes. “I thought about what people would say. ‘It’s creepy. It’s weird. It's a ... show for little girls,'" said Fjordbotten, from Staten Island, N.Y. "It's just a great show ... the story line, the plot, the beautiful animation." Bronies say they’re a misunderstood lot who’ve gotten a bad rap from the media. They're all about the show, friendship, love and tolerance, and they have no bad intentions, they say.

Reds edged by Giants Winning run scores in bottom of the ninth in 4-3 verdict

CLEVELAND INDIANS starting pitcher Justin Masterson, of Beavercreek, delivers against the Baltimore Orioles during the first inning of a baseball game Sunday in Baltimore.

Masterson pitches Tribe to win BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cleveland Indians came to Camden Yards mired in a fivegame losing streak. Worried that his players might switch into panic mode, manager Manny Acta called a team meeting to remind them that things can change in a hurry. His words rang true. Cleveland won three of four from the Orioles, including a 6-2 victory Sunday that provided an uplifting finish to a 4-6 road trip. Justin Masterson pitched seven innings of five-hit ball, Shelley Duncan homered and hit two doubles, and Aaron Cunningham contributed a solo shot. Cleveland totaled 55 hits in the four games, including eight for extra bases in the finale. “A nice bounce back to finish a road trip that started in such an ugly way,” Acta said. The Indians lost two of three in Houston and were swept in three games by the Yankees before bullying the skidding Orioles. “Being able to finish by winning three of four boosts the boys as we head back home, finally,” Masterson said. Masterson (5-7) retired the first 12 batters he faced and earned his first road win in four tries since May 3. The right-hander gave up two runs, one earned, struck out seven and walked none. “Masterson was dominant the majority of the game,” Acta said. “He was in command all day. He was able to throw that four-seam by guys whenever he wanted to at 95 or 96. Never a doubt.” Jim Thome went 0 for 4 in his Baltimore debut. Acquired Saturday in a trade with Philadelphia, the 41-year-old slugger struck out twice and grounded out twice against the team with which he broke into the majors in 1991. All-Star selection Adam Jones drove in a run and scored one for the Orioles, who have lost five of six and nine of 12. Baltimore starter Brian Matusz (5-10) didn’t make it out of the fifth inning and lost his fifth straight start. After the game, the left-hander was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk, where the Orioles hope he can regain his form. “I think there’s a couple adjustments he can make that will help him,” said Dan Duquette, the team’s executive vice president of baseball operations. “He’s not too far away from being a winning major league pitcher. With a couple adjustments and some consistencies that will help him command his fastball better, that will give him a much better chance.” Matusz allowed five runs, four earned, seven hits and three walks in four-plus innings.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)— Angel Pagan hit a game-ending double that Jay Bruce misplayed in right field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the San Francisco Giants a four-game series split with a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Buster Posey poked a pitch from Jose Arredondo (4-2) down the right-field line that bounced into the stands for a two-out double. Then Pablo Sandoval was walked intentionally to set the stage for a wild finish. The crowd let out a sigh when Bruce drifted under Pagan’s fly ball to right until those whipping winds along the bay carried the ball over his head. The 42,039 from the sold-out stands at AT&T Park erupted, Pagan tossed his helmet and the Giants streamed out of the dugout in celebration. Santiago Casilla (2-3) blew the save in the ninth but worked out of a bases-loaded jam with no outs to give San Francisco a shot. Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong allowed only a two-run homer to Todd Frazier in seven innings. The right-hander struck out five and walked one, and the benches cleared after he slammed his bat because of an inside pitch from Reds starter Bronson Arroyo in the sixth. After all the drama, the Giants ended the weekend the same way they started it: in first place in the NL West over the rival Dodgers. Reds slugger Joey Votto sat out the game with inflammation in his left knee. Miguel Cairo, who replaced Votto in the bottom of the fifth Saturday, started at first base. Cincinnati could have used the help. Posey, the NL’s top vote-getter for the All-Star team announced earlier in the morning, hit the last of three straight two-out singles in the third to drive in Ryan Theriot and give the Giants a 1-0 lead. Theriot singled, doubled, walked twice and scored San Francisco’s first three runs. Frazier followed with a two-run homer in the fifth that drifted just over the wall in left field to put Cincinnati ahead. Frazier’s eighth home

Theriot scored on a double from Melky Cabrera. run of the season came in place of third baseman Scott Rolen, who was taken out of the lineup with back spasms while Vogelsong was warming up on the mound. After Theriot doubled in front of a diving Bruce in the fifth, he scored on Melky Cabrera’s single to tie the game 2-all. Posey was hit by an 0-1 pitch next, and though San Francisco’s offense stalled with only one out, what appeared to be an unintentional inside pitch wasn’t forgotten Vogelsong squared to sacrifice bunt in the sixth when Arroyo’s inside pitch turned him around, the ball richoted off the bat and hit plate umpire Dan Iassogna’s shoulder. Vogelgong slammed the bat down and took a couple steps toward Arroyo, the benches cleared and both teams were warned. Arroyo muttered a few words at Vogelsong when the Giants pitcher jogged back to the dugout after he landed a

successful sacrifice, and Arroyo was booed soundly walking off the mound after a scoreless inning. His final line: six innings, seven hits, two strikeouts, two runs and two walks. All that drama never really materialized into anything tangible. Reds manager Dusty Baker replaced Arroyo with Logan Ondrusek in the seventh, when Theriot drew a leadoff walk. Cabrera dropped a sacrifice bunt and Posey followed with a line-drive single to center over a drawn-in infield to give San Francisco a 3-2 lead. Bruce singled off lefty Javier Lopez to open the ninth. Casilla entered and allowed consecutive singles to Ryan Ludwick and Frazier to load the bases. Cairo, at the time batting .133, hit an RBI single to tie the game at 3-all. Casilla has blown two of his last three save opportunities, and is 20

for 23 this season in place of bearded closer Brian Wilson. But the hard-throwing right-hander rallied to strike out Ryan Hanigan, Wilson Valdez and get Zack Cozart to pop out to first base, setting the stage for San Francisco in the bottom of the ninth. Notes: Rolen was credited with a start batting sixth, and Frazier with a start at third base. Rolen did not get credit for an appearance at third base. ... Vogelsong hit Brandon Phillips with a pitch with two in the fourth for Cincinnati’s first baserunner. Vogelsong has hit four batters in his last five games. ... San Francisco’s Aubrey Huff (sprained right knee) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday for Class A San Jose. ... The 2002 NL champion Giants team, which Baker managed, was honored before the game. Barry Bonds and Jeff Kent were among the members of that team in attendance.

Hamilton leads All-Star vote-getters LaRussa adds Bruce, Chapman, but snubs Cueto, Phillips NEW YORK (AP) — Josh Hamilton is set to lead a Texas parade to the All-Star game. Now, fans will decide if Chipper Jones gets one final appearance or whether it’s time for teen sensation Bryce Harper. Hamilton drew a record total of more than 11 million votes, and the slugger was among seven Rangers chosen Sunday as All-Stars. A trio of San Francisco Giants rallied in the last week to claim spots while three Yankees also made the starting lineup. “I don’t think the Texas Rangers have to apologize because we’ve got good players,” AL manager Ron Washington of Texas said. “I certainly didn’t pick my guys being selfish, I picked them very deserving of being All-Stars, bottom line.” Washington fastballer Stephen Strasburg and Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey were two of the 66 players chosen by fans, managers and big leaguers for the showcase July 10 in Kansas City. So was 20-year-old Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout, who leads the AL in hitting at .339 and drew more than 800,000

Few of the races for starting spots were close and there seemed to be little complaining about the fans’ choices. OK, sure, David Wright

could’ve gotten the nod over Pablo Sandoval. But there certainly will be campaigning this week when it comes to Jones and Harper after they were left off — for now, anyway. The NL and AL each have one spot left, with fans voting online through Thursday to select one of five candidates in both leagues. Jones and Harper are two of the NL possibilities. At 40, Jones is a seven-time All-Star and plans to retire after this season. Banged up, the Atlanta third baseman has managed to hit near .300. “This being my last year, it would be fun to go. I’d love to take my kids,” Jones said. At 19, Harper started the season in Triple-A. The Washington outfielder has dazzled since his promotion with his bat, arm and flatout hustle. “I’m an old-timer, so I’d probably lean toward Chipper,” NL manager Tony La Russa said on the TBS selection show. The league that wins the All-Star game gains homefield advantage in the World Series. The NL won last year,

then St. Louis became the ninth straight home team to win Game 7 in the Series. The NL starters: Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto, Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla, shortstop Rafael Furcal and outfielder Carlos Beltran of St. Louis, Kemp, Sandoval, Posey and Cabrera Selected by NL manager tony LaRussa from the Reds were outfielder Jay Bruce and relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman. But left off the National League team were ace pitcher Johnny Cueto and second baseman Brandon Phillips. The five candidates for the final AL roster spot are all right-handed pitchers: Texas rookie Yu Darvish and fellow starters Jake Peavy of the White Sox and Jason Hammel of Baltimore and relievers Jonathan Broxton of the Royals and Ernesto Frieri of the Angels. The NL candidates: Jones, Harper, Arizona second baseman Aaron Hill, Atlanta outfielder Michael Bourn and St. Louis third baseman David Freese, MVP of last year’s World Series.

Keselowski’s 3rdf Cup win shakes things up

AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic

SPAIN'S CESC Fabregas passes the ball past Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to assist David Silva, unseen, to score the opening goal during the Euro

2012 soccer championship final between Spain and Italy in Kiev, Ukraine.

Spain wins again, beating Italy 4-0 at Euro 2012 European Championship finals, and Casillas played in his record 100th victory in international soccer. Spain’s other goals on Sunday at the Olympic Stadium came from David Silva, Jordi Alba and Juan Mata. “We were superior to Italy,” said midfielder Xavi Hernandez, perhaps Spain’s most influential player over the last four years. “We played a complete game and perhaps the best of the entire European Championship. We made history.” Four years ago at Euro 2008, Spain ended a 44-year drought of major titles, beating Germany 1-0 in the final to start a run that has been unmatched by any other team in history. Although they lost to the United States in the semifinals of the Confederations Cup in 2009, snapping a record 15game winning streak, the Spanish have been nearly impossible to beat in competitive matches. A year after that game against the Ameri-

cans, Spain opened the 2010 World Cup with a loss to Switzerland. But they then went on a tear, winning their next six games to finally claim a World Cup title and undoubtedly shed for good the “underachiever” tag. In all that time since Euro 2008, Spain has won with flair, using its short passing game — dubbed “tiki taka” by the Spanish media and adopted by the team —to dazzle scrambling opponents. “Tonight, there was no contest,” Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said. “They were too superior, so the bitterness at losing this final is only relative.” Against Italy, Spain was the favorite, but was also primed to be beaten after being held to a 1-1 draw by the Italians in their opening Group C match. Spain, which has been experimenting with a lineup that excludes a recognized striker, needed a penalty shootout to reach the final after a 0-0 tie with Portugal in the semifi-

nals. The controversial lineup, which Spain coach Vicente del Bosque again employed on Sunday, is akin to playing in the Super Bowl without a running back. Sure, you can still score touchdowns, but you give up on the chance for a game-breaking play. Still, the midfielders and the defenders got the job done in the first half. Silva headed in a high shot in the 14th minute off a pass from Cesc Fabregas. And Alba added another in the 41st, picking up a beautiful through ball from Xavi and shooting past Buffon. “The game was ours after the first goal, but the truth is that we played one heck of a game,” Fabregas said. Italy’s task was tough enough with 11 players, and it became impossible with only 10 after the 64th minute. All its substitutes were used when midfielder Thiago Motta, who had only been on the field for seven minutes, was taken off with an injury.

O’s get Thome in deal with Phillies BALTIMORE (AP)— Jim Thome arrived at Camden Yards on Sunday, eager to become a regular in the Baltimore Orioles lineup and to make a good team even better. Acquired Saturday in a trade that sent two minor leaguers to Philadelphia, Thome, 41, hurriedly traveled from Miami to Baltimore and was in the starting lineup against Cleveland. Playing in the American League means Thome can serve as a designated hitter. “I expect to come to the ballpark and play every day,” he said. “Can I do that? I mean, realistically, probably not. But I think the mentality every day is to come and be ready.” Thome batted fifth Sunday and received a standing ovation at Camden Yards before his first plate appearance, a groundout. He went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in Baltimore’s 6-2 loss. Thome didn’t play as often as he would have liked for the last-place Phillies. He was, however, thankful to get a second chance to be in Philadelphia, where he starred from 2003-05. “I think everybody knows my history in Philly. It’s a great organization, they were first

class,” he said. “Obviously, I think they put me in a real good situation here, so I am excited again.” Thome expected to play more first base with the Phillies, but wasn’t physically capable of doing so. “That put them in a tough situation and I understood that,” he said. “Then interleague happened and I was able to get some consistent atbats. It was one of them things where it kind of made me really realize how much I did love the game and how much I did want to play and get

those at-bats every day.” The lefty batting Thome has 609 home runs, tied with Sammy Sosa for seventh on the career list. He had 18 at Camden Yards in 67 games. “It’s always been a very good park to hit in, but ultimately you’ve got to go out and have good at-bats,” he said. “Good at-bats hopefully will produce hits.” Thome was delighted to join a team in contention to make the postseason. Despite Sunday’s loss, Baltimore is in second place in the AL East with a 42-36

record. “These guys, they’ve had a great year,” he said. “I think they’ve done some special things and hopefully we can continue to do that.” Thome’s presence could mean a lot in a clubhouse in needed of veteran leadership. “Not only can you contribute the days you play, but also the days you don’t play. Watching the game, watching pitchers and just talking baseball,” he said. “I think that’s what I was fortunate to learn from in Cleveland and my years coming up.”

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Just like clockwork, Spain’s “tiki taka” passing game tore Italy apart. The World Cup champions controlled the play Sunday in the European Championship final, as they usually do. They moved the ball up the field with short pass after short pass, as they usually do. But, incredibly, they also managed to score a whopping four goals, something they don’t usually do. It all added up to a 40 win over Italy and a third straight major soccer title for Spain. “We won being true to our playing style, and by moving the ball the we way we moved it we knew how to take charge of the match,” said Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas, the team’s captain. “What we do is difficult but we make it look easy.” Casillas and Spain striker Fernando Torres also made their own histories. Torres became the first man to score in two

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Congressional reopened its gates Sunday to thousands of spectators who got what they expected in the AT&T National — another win by Tiger Woods. Only this win didn't follow a typical script. Caught in a tense duel with Bo Van Pelt on another sweltering day, it looked as though Woods blinked first until Van Pelt matched him with mistakes of his own. Woods closed with a 2-under 69 and won by two shots when Van Pelt finished with his third straight bogey and had to settle for a 71. Woods won for the third time this year, the most of anyone on the PGA Tour, and it was the 74th win of his career. That moved him past Jack Nicklaus into second place on the tour list, eight short of the record set by Sam Snead. Woods, who finished at 8-under 276, moved to the top of the PGA Tour money list and the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since September 2009. effectively He clinched the win with a 9-iron down the hill toward the peninsula green on the 18th, a shot so pure that Woods started walking and twirled the club moments after he made contact. And so ended a wild week in Washington — record heat Friday, followed by a wind storm that topped dozens of trees at Congressional and forced the tournament to keep spectators out Saturday. They were back in force for the final round, and they were treated to some pretty good theater. "What an incredible week," said Woods, the host of the AT&T National and a winner for the second straight time Area tracks it has come to CongresShady Bowl Speedway sional.

our community by providing a state-of- the-art facility right here in Shelby County. We see this as an asset for all the citizens of the region to enjoy,” said Rhonda Keister. “Whether it is to renew our downtown, create a home for the arts, revitalize an historic landmark or add a new dimension to what we call home, this project will touch all of our lives in a positive fashion. Vibrant communities have similar qualities that make them the kinds of places that people like to visit and want to live in and one of those is a thriving arts and cultural community,” said Beigel. Raise the Roof for the Arts anticipates the campaign to conclude by the end of this year, with renovations begin-

ning during 2013. “The enthusiasm of our campaign team and their embrace of this campaign will help us achieve our goal of $3.5 million and will help to make our community a better place to live, work and visit,” said Rudy Keister. “There is much work to do, but we are confident we'll see success, and our community will have a beautifully renovated venue to use for the performing arts, arts and education activities, private rentals, corporate events and more,” Mardie Milligan said.

past two nights.” Motorists found it challenging to get across town Friday afternoon and Saturday, as traffic signals weren’t working at many intersections. By Sunday morning, however, most were functioning. “I can’t say they’re all back on, but a majority are,” Sidney Police Lt. Mike Rosengarten said Sunday morning. Rosengarten said he wasn’t aware of any crashes because traffic signals were out, but “there were a lot of near misses.” The storm’s aftermath has kept firefighters busy, too. “We’ve been handling a lot wires down,” Jason Truesdale, a firefighter at the Sidney Department of Fire and Emergency Services, said Sunday morning. Truesdale said they haven’t handled any serious injuries related to the power outage. He said there was a structure fire Saturday night, but it was not related to the power outage. The rescue squad has been transporting people with heat-related problems, he said. Some have been taken to the Sidney Middle School, where the American Red Cross has set up a shelter. Firefighters had to deal with a power outage of their own in the midst of responding to calls. “I think we might be still on a generator,” Truesdale said, speaking from the main station downtown. “Station 2 (on Vandemark Road) was on a generator, but with no air conditioning. I think they got air conditioning back up.” The Northern Miami Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross opened a shelter at the middle school Saturday evening. Red Cross Executive Director R. Scott Miller, speaking at the shelter Sunday morning, said the shelter had up to 20 people at one time.

Some stayed overnight. People had come in to cool off and charge their cell phones. About 20 Red Cross volunteers have been helping at the shelter, he said. Miller said the shelter will continue to operate “as long as there is a need.” He said Red Cross personnel planned to meet Sunday afternoon to decide how much longer the shelter would operate. He said the decision would depend largely on how much progress the power companies have made in restoring electricity. In Shelby County there were multiple calls into 911 to report downed trees and wires. There were at least 12 reports of lines down, four reports of poles down, a couple of reports of transformers on fire or arcing and six reports of trees down on Friday following the storm. On Saturday morning there were a couple more reports in the county about downed trees and power lines. Sidney Fire and Emergency Services personnel started to receive calls on storm damage at 4:05 p.m. There were five reports of lines down, nine reports of alarms, eight reports of limbs or trees down, five calls on transformer issues, nine reports for medical assistance and three injuries. At 4:06 p.m., there was a report that lightning had struck a home at 1338 Riverbend Drive. The lightning strike did not result in a fire. At 4:09 p.m. on Friday, medics responded to 116 1/2 W. Poplar St. on a report of a person stuck in an elevator. On Saturday morning, there were four separate calls about power line issues on the 300 block of Grove Street. According to reports, a tree on that block caught on fire from power lines and continued smoking. DP&L was called to the scene.

the major gifts division. John Beigel and Tom Milligan will be working with a group of campaign volunteers for this next phase of the fund raising effort. “As the word has spread about the project, we have seen a number of community residents come forward looking to support the project," Tom Milligan said. “The momentum is building and you can feel the enthusiasm. The renovation of the Historic Sidney Theatre is not just about the reconstruction of an historic landmark, but also about defining who we are as a community and the experiences we want to create for our families and ourselves,” said Beigel. Over the past three years, RTR leadership has spent time planning, researching and meeting with designers, engineers, community leaders, arts organizations, architects and financial institutions to develop a strategy for the renovation of this landmark. RTR retained the expertise of Freytag & Associates who worked with their in-house experts and outside consultants to provide estimates for the renovation. Other project consultants included Blundall & Associates, a professional construction-cost consulting firm specializing in costing for historic renovations, Nauman & Zelinski, HVAC engineering consultants who helped design systems for Dayton's Schuster Center, and Tiffin Scenic Studios, manufacturers and installers of stage rigging systems.

Word of the Week The word for firework in Japanese, 'hanabi', means 'fire-flower.'

Newspaper Knowledge Have a safety lesson and go through the newspaper and clip things that can be dangerous if used incorrectly, like knives, spray cans, tools, and fireworks, and the like.

Facts From The Bookshelf For hundreds of years, even before Francis Scott key wrote of seeing “the rockets” red glare, the bombs bursting in air,” people have been awed by the bright lights and big noise of fireworks. The ancient Chinese used fireworks at festivals and to frighten enemies in battle. Captain John Smith set them off in Jamestown in 1608, enjoying a big of English popular entertainment and impressing the Native Americans.

All About Fireworks! FACTS ABOUT FIREWORKS The first fireworks were probably made in China, around 2,000 years ago. Chinese crackers, as they are known, are still used in China today to celebrate weddings, births and religious festivals – and to scare away evil spirits! Fireworks were used for centuries in ancient Indian and Thai religious ceremonies. Some of the rockets were 8-10 feet long and were attached to bamboo sticks that were 40 feet high. The first recorded fireworks in England were at the wedding of King Henry VII in 1486. They gained popularity during the reign of Henry VIII and by Elizabethan times (1558-1603) there was a fireworks master. Queen Elizabeth I created this post so that someone would be in charge of organizing firework displays for great occasions. James II even knighted his fireworks master after a particularly excellent show of fireworks at his coronation.

OTHER INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT FIREWORKS • The word for firework in Japanese, 'hanabi,' means 'fire-flower.' • Half of all firework accidents happen to children under the age of 16. • The first fireworks recorded in America were set off by an Englishman, Captain John Smith, famous in the story of Pocahontas. • Three sparklers burning together generate the same heat as a blow-torch. • The world's largest single firework was set off at a festival in Japan in 1988. The shell weighed more than half a ton and the burst was more than a kilometer across. • Throwing a firework in a street or public place is a criminal offense, with a maximum fine of 5,000 pounds in England. (Approx. $7,800 U.S. dollars) FIREWORK SAFETY Fireworks can be great fun. Unfortunately, every year, people get hurt because they fool around

SMOKY ORIGINS Legend has it that the Chinese made the first fireworks in the 800s, filling bamboo shoots with gunpowder and exploding them at the New Year with the hope that the sound would scare away evil spirits. According to tradition, Marco Polo brought this technology back to Europe. It's fair to say, however, that the origins of fireworks are shrouded in smoke; the China story is widespread, and possibly true, but fireworks may in fact have developed in India or the Arab world. Fireworks became known

with fireworks. Last year more than 900 people required hospital treatment from accidents involving fireworks. Make sure you’re not one of them by following these few simple rules. Never play with fireworks – They are explosives and can hurt you. Only adults should light or hold fireworks. When you are watching fireworks stand well back.

Never go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn’t gone off, it could still explode. Fireworks will frighten your pets, so keep your pets safely indoors. If you are given a sparkler: Always wear gloves. Hold it at arm’s length. When your sparkler goes out, DON’T TOUCH IT. It could still burn you, so put it in a bucket of water.

During the 1700s, displays became in Europe during the 1300s, probably after returning Crusaders brought them more elaborate and were popular with European royalty. French King Louis from the East.

Fireworks in a Glass Fireworks are a beautiful and fun part of many celebrations, but not something you want kids to make themselves. However, even very young explorers can experiment with these safe underwater 'fireworks'. What You Need * water * oil * food coloring * tall clear glass * another cup or glass * fork Create Fireworks in a Glass 1. Fill the tall glass almost to the top with room-temperature water. Warm water is ok, too. 2. Pour a little oil into the other glass. (1-2 tablespoons) 3. Add a couple of drops of food coloring. I used one drop of blue and one drop of red, but you can use any colors.





4. Briefly stir the oil and food coloring mixture with a fork. You want to break up the food coloring drops into smaller drops, but not thoroughly mix the liquid. 5. Pour the oil and coloring mixture into the tall glass. 6. Now watch! The food coloring will slowly sink in the glass, with each droplet expanding outward as it falls, resembling fireworks falling into water. How It Works Food coloring dissolves in water, but not in oil. When you stir the food coloring in the oil, you are breaking up the coloring droplets (though drops that come into contact with each other will merge... blue + red = purple). Oil is less dense than water, so the oil will float at the top of the glass. As the colored drops sink to the bottom of the oil, they mix with the water. The color diffuses outward as the heavier colored drop falls to the bottom.

The Ghost in the Courthouse Statue Written by Bill Bailey Illustrated by Michelle Duckworth Chapter 14 Visitors get strange tour STORY SO FAR: Donnie overhears Sheriff Matlock's posse plotting to visit The Jefferson Times office to kill Jake, Holly, and possibly Donnie, too. For breaking a ghost rule about meddling in human affairs, Felix is sent back to his statue. This leaves Donnie alone as he makes plans to confront the sheriff's posse. When Felix had flickered and disappeared, he had said I should "use ze noodle." That was his way of saying to use my brain and be smart. And sure enough, a plan had popped into my head. At first I had wondered if I'd have the guts to pull it off, but then I thought about Mom and realized I had to give it a shot. First, I had to make sure that Mom and Jake weren't in the office when the sheriff's posse showed up. Late the next day, I rode my bike to a convenience store just down the street from The Times office and pulled up beside their phone booth. I put in a quarter and phoned The Times. I asked to speak to Mr. Passmore. When Jake answered, I spoke to him using my best fake, high-pitched woman's voice. Acting as nervous as I could, I said, "I know you're not going to believe this, Mr. Passmore, but I just spotted a We-Moat! It was the most horrible creature I've ever seen!" "Excuse me, ma'am. But what's a WeMoat?" Jake asked. "You know," I said. "It's one of those giant, hairy monsters that live out in the woods on the west side of the county, near the Mississippi River. I saw it standing over some dead cows." "Do you think it killed them?" he asked. "Sucked 'em bone dry," I said. "What's it look like?" Jake asked. "Oh, it's about seven or eight feet tall, with one eye in the middle of its forehead and a long, hollow tooth for sucking blood." I knew my We-Moat story would get Jake excited, because on the day he arrived in town, I had heard him ask the sheriff about Big Foot. You might say this was our local version of the imaginary swamp creature. Grown-ups around here always loved scaring us kids with creepy We-Moat tales. After hanging up, I looked down the street. I could see Mom and Jake rushing out of the office and into his red Corvette in a flurry of cameras, notepads and car keys. I'd felt sure Jake wouldn't be able to resist my fake WeMoat sighting. And with night falling, I knew he'd insist on taking Mom with him, too – for safety's sake. As soon as they had peeled out, I biked back to the office and parked in the brick courtyard behind the building. I went inside using my secret way – a window I always kept cracked in the back room. I opened the closet in the back room, where I kept my puppets and stuffed animals. I took Grizzly out and said, "Sorry, Griz. I need some of your fur. But I promise I'll get Mom to sew you back together when this is all over." "Okay," I answered back in the dopey bear voice I always used for him. I took some scissors and cut a big piece of fur out of his back. Then, I found some string and went to work preparing for my guests. With night falling, I sat down in the back room and practiced Felix's French accent. I figured the posse would probably approach the building from the back, where no one would see them come in. Looking out the back window, I thought I saw a slight movement in the courtyard. With that, my heart was

pounding. I was as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Then they appeared, all bent over and sneaky. Sheriff Matlock was in the lead, revolver in hand, followed by Clint Ratchett and Judge Lulu Roberts. They looked around to make sure no one saw them. Crawling across the floor on my hands and knees, I scuttled up the hall to the front office. I had left the back door unlocked, and I heard it creak as they entered. I put my ear up to an air conditioning vent in the front office. I knew it connected with one in the back. Through the vent, I could hear Judge Lulu whispering. "Why can't we leave the boy out of it?" "The fleas come with the dog," Sheriff Matlock growled back. Now that they were inside, the moment had come. I turned the volume up on Mom's recorder and hit the play button. It was the recording I had made at Jake's first staff meeting.... "You mean we should invent the news," Mom's voice said. "What about our credibility as journalists?" "I take that quite seriously," Jake said. "Say there's an Elvis sighting. We don't want someone covering that up with the lame excuse that he's dead." Lying on the floor in the dark, I peeked down the hall to the back room. I could see they were listening closely. I hit the stop button. Tucking the recorder into my pocket, I slipped out the front door. Outside, I had prepared a network of strings in both the front and the back of the building. I sat down behind a ginkgo tree in front of the building and grabbed the end of a string that I had run under the front door. Through the front display window, I could see the sheriff's posse inching down the long hall toward the front office. They were all hunched over together like a giant, six-legged caterpillar. Time to start things in motion. The string I was holding was attached to the fur ball I'd cut from Grizzly. I had taped it to the hall ceiling, and right now, the posse was creeping just underneath it. I yanked on the string. Bingo! It landed right in Judge Lulu's hair, then fell onto the floor in front of her. I gave it a few quick jerks with my string, making it wiggle as it raced along the hardwood floor. Her shriek was so loud I thought it might shatter a window. "What was that?" the sheriff said. "A rat!" she screeched. "A huge, furry rat!"

NIE Coordinator: Dana Wolfe / Graphic Designer: Scarlett E. Smith

"Great going, Lulu," Clint hissed. "You let them know we're here." They rushed from the hall into the front room. "They musta' hid when they heard your caterwaulin'," said the sheriff. I dashed around the side of the building to the brick courtyard in back, where I had tucked a fistful of strings into a potted plant. Now was the time to see if my practicing had paid off. I cracked open my window, took a deep breath, and yelled into the building, using my best Felix voice. "Welcome, Shereef Matlock. Would you like a tour of my humble abode? ...Eet ees no use looking for ze humans, because zey are not here. Eet ees only moi... ze ghost of Felix LaBauve." "I know that phony French voice!" the sheriff yelled from the front office. "It's Jake pretending to be a ghost!" The posse tore down the hall to the back room. Through the back window, I watched them racing toward me, this time with Clint in the lead. As he entered the room, I tugged hard on my thickest string. A rug flew out from under his feet, propelling him face-first onto the floor. I yanked another string and a window shade flew up with a loud clatter. The sheriff fired several shots at the shade. "Blam, blam, blam!"

Kneeling on the bricks behind the potted plant, I watched the confused threesome – Clint fussing with his toupée, Judge Lulu in a state of shock, and Sheriff Matlock with his gun drawn, turning in circles. Next, I tried to throw my voice through the window and up to Felix's portrait, which was hanging on a wall nearby. "Madame and monsieurs, you cannot keel ze great Felix LaBauve as easily as you did Editor Elder." The sheriff whirled around and emptied his revolver into Felix's portrait. "How'd you know we did that!?" the sheriff yelled at the painting. It didn't answer. Glancing around nervously, the sheriff hollered, "Jake, I know it's you!" He threw open the closet door in the corner and jabbed his revolver inside. Staring back at him were all my puppets and stuffed animals – Grizzly, Squirrely, Cowboy Bill, Bertie the bird, Zip the weenie dog, X-Ray the cat – and of course, Humpty. The sheriff stepped away from the closet. "That fake French talk don't fool me one bit, Jake. You need a new routine," the sheriff said. "Look, I'm putting my gun down." He laid the revolver on a table beside him. Then, he silently nodded at Clint to get inside the closet. Clint pulled out a pistol, stepped into the closet, and closed the door, leaving just a crack to see through. "Come on out, Jake. You, too, Holly," the sheriff said, his eyes roaming the room. He had his arms up over his head to show he wasn't holding a gun. "Let's talk this thing over peaceablelike." They had set a trap. But what the sheriff hadn't noticed were three thin strings that ran from the closet along the floor and out the window. I smiled to myself. Perfect.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

Fourth of July Fireworks Safety

Water Safety

There are nearly 9,000 emergency room-treated injuries associated with fireworks a year, according to the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission. You can enjoy these Fourth of July staples safely by doing the following:
