BY TOM BARNETT After listening more than an hour to the concerns of Sidney swimming pool owners who filled council chambers Monday night, Sidney City Council agreed to suspend enforcement of code violation cipending further tations review of existing regulations. The same group of citizens had expressed their concerns

with code violation citations and orders to remove pools during council’s June 25 meeting. The decision, based on a motion by veteran councilman Tom Miller, was met with applause and appreciation from pool owners. The vote by council was 6-1, with Katie McMillan casting the only negative vote. Miller said earlier Monday night he feels all issues in the ongoing debate “are based on

the size of the pool.” Following Monday night’s decision, Mayor Mike Barhorst assured pool owners their concerns and complaints have been noted and will be addressed in the next council work session. He also invited residents to address any further concerns or comments to the city clerk by letter or email. The mayor and council also expressed appreciation to pool

Residents’ basic concerns have risen from citations issued for alleged infractions dealing with yard setback, fencing, pool size and electrical service infractions.

Although Sidney and Shelby County sweltered under 100degree heat indexes the past 10 days, official day-to-day temperatures recorded at Sidney’s Wastewater Treatment plant remained in the 90s through the period with one exception. The mercury did reach 102 degrees on June 28, the day the heat wave began. (Staff at the plant are required to record heat scores as part of the process of treating the city’s waste). Temperatures for the period June 29 through last Sunday follow: June 29, 98 degrees; June 30, 91; July 1, 93; July 2, 92; July 3, 94; July 4, 97; July 5, 96; July 7, 98 and 88 degrees Sunday, July 8 after a Saturday night cold front helped the intense heat abate. The local wastewater plant is the official weather recording station for Shelby County.

Tax relief available for storm damage Shelby County Auditor Denny York has announced that owners of properties damaged by the recent storms may be eligible for a reduction in their property taxes. State law allows county auditors to reduce property values, and consequently property taxes, for structures that are torn down or are significantly damaged by fire or other causes. Under this provision, property values are reduced on a sliding scale per quarter of the year in which the damage or razing occurs. This would mean that property affected by the June 29 storms could receive a reduction of up to 75 percent for

the 2012 tax year. York said owners whose property was damaged should contact the Auditor’s Office by phone at 498-7202 or email to for information or to request a form to report the loss. Forms may also be obtained on the auditor’s website, The application asks owners the nature of the damage and an estimate of the cost to repair it, among other questions. Applications can be delivered in person or mailed to the Auditor’s Office at 129 E. Court St., Sidney, OH 45365. “If a structure has sustained struc-

tural damage, we would like to know about it,” York said. “We will dispatch an appraiser to make sure it is taxed on its diminished value until repaired or razed.” He said part of the appraisal process would be to determine when repairs to the structure should be complete, and the office would be following up to make sure owners are being credited only for the time their property was damaged. In conclusion, York said the property tax reduction would be reflected on the property’s next tax bill, which is due in February.

Boyfriend’s brother: Sibling strangled Ohio woman

AP Photo/Mark Duncan

THIS PHOTO made June 29 shows the main gaming floor at the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland. The casino took in $42.9 million at table games in June and $159.6 million at the slots. The casino’s share after winning payouts was $26.1 million.

First full month casino take was $417M bet BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — Gamblers bet more than $417 million in the first full month in business at Ohio’s two casinos, and operators paid out more than $371 million in winnings, the Ohio Casino Control Commission reported Tuesday. The commission detailed the 89-percent payout in the first report on revenues at the Horseshoe casino that opened May 14 in Cleveland and the Hollywood Toledo casino that opened two weeks later. The casinos’ share after payouts was more than $46 million. In Cleveland, the Horseshoe casino took in $42.9 million at table games in June and $159.6 million at the slots. The casino’s share after winning payouts was $26.1 million. Players in Toledo bet $19.6 million at table games and $195.6 million

at slots. The casino’s afterpayout share was $20.4 million. For the part of May they were open, the casinos took in a combined $164 million in bets and grossed $18.8 million after payouts. By law, casinos pay a gross revenue tax of 33 percent split between entities including counties with shares determined by population, school districts with shares by enrollment, the four casino cities, the casino commission and programs for problem gamblers. Steve Norton, a casino industry veteran now working as a consultant, said the overall revenue numbers should increase as people get used to making the new casinos part of their leisure time routine. “I would expect it to get better,” he said. “You do have some people who are curious about it. What you also have is people getting more and more accustomed to visiting a casino.

They like it, it becomes a way to spend their leisure dollars.” Rock Gaming, led by Dan Gilbert, owner of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers, developed the Cleveland casino with Caesars Entertainment and is developing the Cincinnati casino. Penn National Gaming Inc. of Wyomissing, Pa., runs the Toledo casino and is building the Columbus casino. In response to the revenue report from the state, spokesman Brent Burkhardt said Penn National was pleased with the initial response from guests. He said specific comments would be reserved for the company’s quarterly earnings call. There was no immediate comment from the Cleveland casino operators. Ohio voters in 2009 approved casino gambling in the four cities. Backers promised new jobs and opponents warned about more gambling addicts.

Kasich spares killer of store owner COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Tuesd a y spared the condemned killer of a conveni e n c e s t o r e o w n e r whose exEley ecution was opposed by the detective who investigated the slaying, the prosecutor who pushed for the death sentence and a judge who handed down the sentence. Records show that

death row inmate John Eley was offered the chance to escape the death penalty in exchange for testimony against his alleged conspirator, considered the mastermind of the slaying, but Eley refused to testify or take a deal. Kasich said he based his decision on Eley acting under the direction of another, and what he called Eley’s limited mental capacity. “Without those factors it is doubtful that Eley would have committed this crime,” said Kasich, who changed Eley’s sentence to life in

prison with no chance of parole. The governor also noted that the former Mahoning County prosecutor who tried Eley now regrets how the case was handled and its outcome, and has called for mercy. The decision was the third time since taking office last year that the Republican Kasich has spared an inmate on the eve of execution. Eley, 63, had been scheduled to die July 26 for the 1986 killing of Ihsan Aydah, owner of Sinjil Market in Youngstown.

ASHLAND (AP) — The brother of a man who authorities consider a person of interest in the disappearance of a 33year-old Ohio woman called police to say that his sibling told him he strangled her. Jackenheimer In a 911 recording provided by the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office, 31-year-old Jacob Summerfield told an emergency dispatcher that his brother, whom he identifies as Nate Summerfield, returned without his exgirlfriend from vacation in North Carolina. “I wanted to report a possible murder,” Jacob Summerfield said in the call. “My brother was in North Carolina with his ex-girlfriend and he came back and said he strangled her.” Jacob Summerfield then said his brother left his parents’ home in Ashland. “He just took off,” he said, before saying he had no idea where his brother may have gone. Ashland County sheriff’s Capt. Carl Richert said his office was working with North Carolina investigators on the disappearance of Lynn Jackenheimer of Ashland, who traveled 500 miles to the Nags Head area and has

been missing since July 4. Authorities say she went on vacation with her two children and her boyfriend but didn’t return with them. Police said Nate reSummerfield N. Summerfield turned the children to the Ashland area and left them with his family. They described him as a person of interest in Jackenheimer’s disappearance. Police are seeking any tips about the whereabouts of Jackenheimer, who is about 5-foot-8 with brown hair and blue eyes. Richert said deputies have Nate Summerfield’s cellphone and surveillance video showing him driving a 2009 dark metallic gray four-door Honda Civic at an Ashland Bank around 10 a.m. Sunday. The cellphone was obtained in Ashland, but Richert declined to specify the details. More than 150 friends, relatives and supporters gathered for a candle-lit prayer vigil Monday night. The vigil was led by Rev. Sanford Mitchell of Trinity Lutheran Church, where Jackenheimer attended youth group activities.

E. coli sickens 10 after picnic GERMANTOWN (AP) — Health officials say an E. coli outbreak has sickened at least 10 people who ate at a picnic in southwest Ohio. The illnesses were reported in Germantown, southwest of Dayton. Spokesman Bill Wharton of Montgomery County’s health department says those who became ill were among 200

to 300 people who attended a July 3 customer appreciation picnic at a lawn care business. He said up to six were hospitalized, but he didn’t know their conditions. A local doctor who treated some of those patients says it’s possible they ate the same contaminated dish. The Dayton Daily

News reports health officials are trying to track the outbreak. Thousands of people are sickened each year by E. coli. The bacteria can cause diarrhea, dehydration and, in severe cases, kidney failure. ___ Information from: Dayton Daily News,

Blinds stop burglar ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police say a wouldbe burglar was halted by unlikely obstacles — window blinds. KRQE-TV reports that police found Thomas Molina on Sunday tangled in some window blinds at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque after police received a call about a break-in. Police say the 38-year-old Molina told police he was looking for computer hardware. Molina was arrested and charged with burglary and breaking and entering. He is being held on a $10,000 bond. It was unclear if he had an attorney.

U.S. job openings rose in May WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers advertised more jobs in May than April, a hopeful sign after three months of weak hiring. Job openings rose to a seasonally adjusted 3.6 million, the Labor Department said Tuesday. That’s up from 3.4 million in April. It’s also the second-highest level in nearly four years, just behind March’s 3.7 million. A rise in openings could mean hiring will pick up in the coming months. It typically takes one to three months to fill a job. The report “suggests business attitudes toward hiring are not in complete free-fall,” Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan Chase, wrote in a note to clients. Even with the increase, the competition for jobs remains fierce. There were 12.7 million unemployed people in May, or an average of 3.5 unemployed for each open position. That’s down from a ratio of 3.7 in April. In a healthy job market, the ratio is usually around 2 to 1.

And more openings have yet to translate into greater hiring. For the April-June quarter, the economy added an average of only 75,000 net jobs a month, according to the government June employment report released last Friday. That’s roughly a third of the average monthly jobs added in the January-March quarter. Businesses and governments have been slow to fill jobs in the past year. Since May 2011, openings have increased by more than 18 percent. But gross hiring has risen only about 4 percent. Openings are more than 50 percent higher than they were in June 2009, when the recession ended. But they are still below pre-recession levels of about 5 million per month. The government’s monthly employment report measures net hiring. Tuesday’s report, known as the Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey, measures gross hiring. That rose in May to

4.36 million, the second-highest level in two years. But when layoffs, quits and other separations are subtracted, the net gain is close to the 77,000 reported Friday for May. Layoffs increased in May to the highest level since July 2010. A weaker job market has also led to smaller pay increases. Wages for those who have jobs are barely keeping up with inflation. Without more jobs and higher pay, consumers won’t have the income needed to fuel more spending and economic growth. The slow pace of hiring also suggests businesses aren’t confident enough in the economy to add permanent employees. Nearly a third of the jobs added last month were temporary hires. That is usually seen as a good sign, because it indicates employers need more workers and will soon hire permanently. But many economists now say it suggests that companies are simply reluctant to add workers for the long term.

Egypt’s president flexes power Obama team CAIRO (AP) — The faceoff between Egypt’s new Islamist president and the old guard military sharpened Tuesday with parliament defying orders to disband and the highest court slapping back at Mohammed Morsi in what has become an early glimpse into how he may flex his power. Morsi’s rapid-fire gambits against Egypt’s entrenched institutions show he is willing to push against the establishment left from the era of deposed President Hosni Mubarak. But — so far at least — he and his Muslim Brotherhood allies also have displayed some restraint and pragmatism to avoid setting a collision course during a sensitive transition period. It could point to a complicated and protracted shakeout between Morsi and Egypt’s security and judicial power centers, as all sides test the limits of their powers while the country awaits its post-Arab Spring constitution — possibly by the end of the year. In place of an all-out confrontation, Egypt may be witnessing the new rules of political engagement being defined in a time of highly unclear guidelines: tough statements, conflicting orders and attempts to push the en-

Envoy presses peace plan BAGHDAD (AP) — The U.N.’s special envoy on the Syrian crisis sought to build support for his peace efforts Tuesday with the leaders of Iran and Iraq, saying President Bashar Assad has agreed to a plan to quell the bloodshed in the most violent areas of Syria and then expand the operation to the whole country. Top diplomat Kofi Annan said at a news conference in Iran that the plan still must be presented to the Syrian opposition. But he said his talks with Assad a day earlier focused on a new approach to ending the violence, which activists say has killed more than 17,000 people since March 2011. “(Assad) made a suggestion of building an approach from the ground up in some of the districts where we have extreme violence — to try and

contain the violence in those districts and, step by step, build up and end the violence across the country,” Annan told reporters in Tehran, his first step on a tour of Syria’s allies. He did not elaborate on the plan. Annan later visited Iraq and met Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to discuss ways to end the fighting. “I think we’ve all watched the tragic situation in Syria, the killings, the suffering of the people,” Annan said in Baghdad. “And everyone I’ve spoken to shares the concerns and the needs for us to stop the killing.” The conflict in Syria has defied every international attempt to bring peace, and there was no sign that the plan Annan described Tuesday will be a breakthrough. Although the Assad government’s crackdown has turned the Syrian

president into an international pariah, he still has the support of strong allies such as Russia, Iran and China. There is little support for military intervention of the type that helped bring down Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi, and several rounds of sanctions and other attempts to isolate Assad have done little to stop the bloodshed. Still, Annan’s latest efforts to reach out to Syrian allies suggest he sees them as integral to solving the crisis. Annan was scheduled to brief a closed meeting of the U.N. Security Council by videoconference from Geneva on Wednesday on his meeting with Assad and visits to Iran and Iraq. The council must decide in the coming days whether to extend the mandate of the U.N. observer force in Syria, which expires on July 20.

Divorce settlement reached LOS ANGELES (AP) — Only time will tell if the quick divorce settlement reached between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise lasts longer than their five-year marriage. It will need to, since the agreement will guide how the actors raise their 6-year-old daughter Suri for years to come. Yet major disputes could put the pair back in lawyers’ offices and force them to enter a place they have successfully avoided so far — a courtroom. The surprise announcement Monday that Holmes and Cruise had settled their divorce in less than two weeks ended what many expected to be a contentious breakup spanning both coasts. Details of the agreement remain confiden-

tial and the pair released a joint statement indicating they intend to keep it that way. “We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents,” their statement said. Had the divorce taken longer to resolve, many expected Cruise to try to move the case from New York to California, where he has ended his marriages to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. Neither of those cases lasted very long, with Cruise finalizing his divorce from Rogers within 45 days; his divorce from Kidman took less than six months.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama election campaign has a politically loaded question it wants voters to think about: What is Mitt Romney hiding? Not a thing, Romney says. The Democrats are just trying to change the subject from the weak economy. It’s a newly intense backand-forth as President Barack Obama’s campaign team tries to cast his Republican opponent as a secretive rich guy who keeps his money in offshore accounts and refuses to release more of his tax returns. The coordinated push, which includes stinging criticism from Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, web videos and television advertisements, comes as the Democrats grasp for ways to gain an advantage in a closely contested election and overcome a steady stream of lackluster economic news. Getting personal, Biden declared Tuesday that Romney was “making a lie of the old adage, like father, like son” by not meeting the standards his father, George Romney, set when he released 12 years of tax returns during his 1968 presidential bid. In a speech to Hispanic leaders in Las Vegas, Biden said of Romney: “He wants you to show your papers, but he won’t show us his.” It was a criticism that hit both Romney’s financial reticence and his support for an Arizona immigration law that allows police to check the immigration status of people they stop. The Obama campaign also posted a video on YouTube Tuesday that asked: “How long can Romney keep information on his investments in overseas tax havens secret? And why did he do it in the first place?” Romney aides have called the barrage of attacks an “unfounded character assault” by a campaign desperate to distract attention from a sluggish economy that threatens the president’s re-election prospects. And Romney insists his private financial records contain nothing illegal. “All the taxes are paid, as appropriate,” Romney has said. “All of them have been reported to the government. There’s nothing hidden there.” Still, Romney has released only a single year’s federal return — for 2010 — along with an estimate for 2011. Other returns could contain information about accounts he has held in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, and that has created an opening for Democrats to accuse him of being secretive and taking advantage of tax loopholes that aren’t available to average Americans. “I think what’s important if you’re running for president is that the American people know who you are, what you’ve done and that you’re an open book,” Obama said Monday in a television interview.

BY KATE KING Food allergies are part of the modern-day school room. Ask just about any teacher, principal and, of course, school nurse (for schools that still have one) and they’ll tell you that food allergies are among their many daily concerns when it comes to the well-being of students.

1 in 20 children Nationwide Children’s Hospital estimates that one in 20 children have a food allergy, so it’s no wonder that school personnel must address this very serious health concern. It’s serious because a food allergy reaction can result in anaphylaxis, a critical and potentially life-threatening condition. Unrecognized and untreated, such a condition closes the airway and shuts down vital organs. In January, a 7year-old girl in Virginia died from an anaphylactic reaction to her peanut allergy while at school. By the time emergency crews arrived, the first-

grader was in cardiac arrest. In April, the governor of Virginia signed a bill requiring public schools to adopt and implement policies to possess and administer epinephrine. Epinephrine can halt anaphylaxis, which can be caused by a variety of foods, medications, exercise or insect stings. The governor of Maryland recently signed similar legislation.

School policy

Ohio, auto-injectors can only be used on the children for whom they are prescribed. The challenge is that there is risk for children who do not yet know they may have allergies to certain foods or to bee stings. If undiagnosed children end up in anaphylaxis, by law, the school cannot administer an epinephrine treatment.

It is reasonable to ensure that our schools are equipped and ready to handle undiagnosed food allergies. Certainly, schools cannot be expected to handle every adverse health situation, but knowing that food allergies are prevalent and growing, and that treatment is available, it seems a logical step. Indeed, our public spaces and buildings are ready with defibrillators and basic first-aid equipment. Providing epinephrine treatments at our schools is rational, proactive and potentially life-saving.

IPSWICH, Mass. (AP) — AT&T Inc. says it’s dropping its legal fight against a Massachusetts businessman whose company was on the hook for a fraudulent million-dollar phone bill. The telecommunications company said in a statement Monday it is no longer pursuing its claims against Michael Smith of Ipswich, “though we are entitled by law to collect the amounts owed.” Smith said the offer depends on his dropping a countersuit. Smith says someone hacked into his small manufacturing company’s phone system in 2009 and made nearly $900,000 in calls to Somalia.

To the editor: Those members of Congress who voted for the national health care bill (Obamacare) yielded the power to make regulations to Health and Human Services (HHS). I understand that there are hundreds of such opportunities in this massive 2,000page law. HHS took advantage of this power by deciding that so-called “preventive health care” would include abortion-inducing drugs and that all health care providers, including those who did not want this coverage, would have to provide it and pay for it. There are serious constitutional and religious freedom dimensions to this mandate. Religious freedom is more than the freedom to worship. It includes the freedom to bring religious values into public policy and to live out our faith in our daily lives. I believe that this federal health care bill, which now includes the power to mandate what type of insurance coverage must be purchased, is a regulatory time bomb which needs to be repealed if we want to preserve our religious and constitutional freedoms. Our present senator, Sherrod Brown, voted for Obamacare. His opponent, Josh Mandel, will vote for repeal. Repeal is the route to preserving our freedom from this and other forthcoming mandates forcing people to provide, take, and pay for coverage which violates their conscience or which they may not even want or be able to use.

rules right. Americans know that when it comes to new trade deals, the choices are not limited to free trade or protectionism. And at a time when too many Ohioans are still looking for work, we cannot sign a lopsided trade agreement that tips the balance against American automakers and workers.

Same rules In a trade partnership, everyone should play by the same rules. And so when these rules are being established, the negotiations matter. Congress has a role to play, especially when trade agreements increasingly get involved debates about such as the provisions services, government procurement, worker conditions, and the environment. That’s why I introduced the 21st Century Trade and Market Access Act. This bill would require that the president submit reports to Congress detailing which countries are on track to meet the deadlines and commitments that we’ve agreed upon. We need to know if progress is being made and if our partners are playing by the rules. Again, the TPP is a tremendous opportunity to get trade right. The president must have the authority to negotiate new and better trade deals, but first Congress needs to set the direction so that we can ensure that trade is free and fair. We should be exporting American products, not American jobs.

OMI receives grant; Honda lends leader faculty, student and researcher expertise. Rich Spivey, a senior manager at Honda of America Mfg., responsible for strategic planning, cost control and supply chain sustainability in Honda’s North American Purchasing Division, is on loan to the Ohio State University to lead OMI as its first full-time executive director for the next two years. Since joining Honda in 1990, Spivey has been involved in the sourcing and localization of parts with suppliers in North America, including assessing their capabilities and ways to improve their operations. “Rich brings a high level of experience to OMI that will be essential as we work with manufacturers to match and solve their technical needs with the exceptional resources available in the state of Ohio,” said Glenn Daehn, who previously headed OMI, among other duties at OSU that include his role as the OSU-Honda Partnership executive director. “We very much

appreciate that Honda is loaning such a talented leader to head OMI at this important time.” For two years, OMI has operated as an arm of the OSU College of Engineering to make the university’s technical resources available to the broad range of Ohio manufacturers, including aerospace and aviation, polymers and chemicals, energy components, as well as automobile and automotive parts manufacturing. “Glenn did a great job positioning OMI to provide important technical services through engineering service contracts, technical internships with OSU engineering students, technical training and a seminar/lecture series,” Spivey said. “The grant through the Department of Development will be used in part to identify solution additional providers in Ohio, and establish ways to quickly and efficiently connect manufacturers with appropriate technical resources.” ODOD is working through the Ohio Manu-

Extension facturing Partnership, or Ohio MEP, to provide the $150,000 in funding for the grant from the Edison Funds. The ODOD grant will help to expand access to a wide range of manufacturing expertise available through the Ohio State University, and other Ohio universities and community colleges, manufacturing extension partnerships, the Thomas Edison Centers, and public and private research facilities. “Honda’s role with OMI demonstrates a solid commitment of support to manufacturing, the backbone of our state’s economy,” said Christiane Schmenk, director of the Ohio Department of Development. “Ohio is proud to have one of the top MEP programs in the country, but it is not well known to our smaller manufacturers. I am encouraged by this collaboration that will allow us to better connect them to the reavailable sources through our universities, research centers, and our MEP partners such

U.S. stocks climb as Europe moves to support Spain

SIDNEY HIGH SCHOOL: offering students the most Advanced Placement courses in Shelby County!

FARM FRESH PRODUCE • Locally grown produce • Fresh herbs • Seasonal flowers


NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks rose Tuesday after European leaders accelerated a plan to rescue Spain’s banks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 46 points to 12,782 in the first half hour of trading. The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 4 points to 1,356. The Nasdaq rose 7 points to 2,950. European finance ministers agreed early Tuesday on the terms of a bailout for Spain, saying that the first $37 billion in aid can be ready by the end of the month. Unemployment in Spain is nearing 25 percent. The yield on Spain’s benchmark 10-year government bond fell to 6.7 percent and its stock market surged following the news. On Monday, country’s 10-year borrowing

rate surged to 7 percent, a dangerously high level. The lower yield means investors are less fearful about the country having trouble paying its debts. Portugal, Ireland and Greece all had to ask for help from international lenders after spikes in their own borrowing rates made it unaffordable for them to raise money from selling bonds on the open market. Spain is the largest European country to date to seek international assistance.

expertise to a growing number of Ohio manufacturers. “As a manufacturer with approximately 150 suppliers in the state, Honda recognizes the value of sharing technical expertise from our colleges and universities, and from both private and public research organizations,” said Rick Schostek, senior vice president at Honda of America. “Along with our support providing Rich’s valuable expertise, we appreciate the grant from the Ohio Department of Development that will be used to broaden the scope of OMI activities. By working together, we are taking important steps to strengthen the capabilities of the full range of manufacturers in the state, large and small.”

JC income tax receipts increasing JACKSON CENTER — During Jackson Center Village Council’s second June meeting, the Finance Committee and Bev Wren, fiscal officer, compared income tax receipts for the first five months of 2012 and determined receipts are $35,000 higher than the same period last year, and the May ending cash balance is about $194,000 more. Major expenditures have included a $25,000 payment on the new dump truck, $34,000 for a new police cruiser and a $15,000 payment on the West Street reconstruction project. Council, on recommen-

dation of Mayor Scott Klopfenstein and Police Chief Joe Cotterman, adopted a motion to appoint Aaron J. Schulze as a police officer. Klopfenstein said he has heard positive comments on Schulze’s performance, also saying, “he knows what it takes to be an officer in a small village.” Administrator Bruce Metz asked for a clarification on opening of the cooling center at Family Life Center in the face of continuing hot days. Klopfenstein and council agreed Metz should use common sense and open the center as needed. Unscheduled business included discussion of

complaints of trash burning by some residents. Burning trash is prohibited in the village and recreational fires are regulated. It was decided authority should be given the Police Department should be given authority to write illegal-burning citations. Klopfenstein told Metz the situation needs to be resolved by whatever steps it takes to make certain residents comply with the trash ordinance. The meeting included an executive session to discuss purchase of real estate and pending litigation. No action was taken prior to adjournment.

July 11, 1912 A flaming meteor passed over Sidney last night about 9:47 p.m. The celestial visitor came unheralded, passed across the southwest sky and disappeared, leaving only a trail of light behind. Comparatively few people saw the visitant because of the lateness of the hour. Those who chanced to be in a favorable position to observe the meteor saw an exhibition of celestial fireworks out of the ordinary. Rev. S.A. Moore was standing on the back porch of his home when the meteor passed. Will Davis also witnessed the strange visitor. ––––– With Bob Ewing behind the pitchers, judging balls and strikes, and Jerry Forgarty pitching for Sidney, Knights of Columbus will flock to Russells Point, July 15, to witness the game between the Sidney Council baseball team and the team picked from the St. Marys and Wapakoneta Councils.

Stammen, Nationals confident at baseball season’s midpoint BY KYLE SHANER Ohio Community Media WASHINGTON — A little confidence goes a long way, which Craig Stammen and his Washington National teammates have found out firsthand this season. The Versailles High School alumnus is off to the best season in his four-year Major League Baseball career while the Nationals have the best record in the National League (49-34) and are looking for their first playoff appearance since 1981, before Stammen was born and back when they were the Montreal Expos. The strong start has set the team up well for the second half of the season, Stammen said, and created a lot of excitement in Washington. “We’re all excited for the second half of the season,” he said. “We have a lot to look forward to.”

AP File Photo/Patrick Semansky

WASHINGTON NATIONALS relief pitcher Craig Stammen throws to the Baltimore Orioles during an interleague baseball game in Baltimore, June 24. Stammen attributes the men’s Major League tenure. Nationals’ success to the It was at that time the Nastrong end of the season they tionals’ young core realized had in 2011. The Nationals they’re just as good as other went 17-10 in September last teams, Stammen said, and creyear to finish the season 80-81, ated a sense of confidence that their best season in Stam- has carried over to this season.

“That little confidence goes a long way,” the pitcher from North Star said. At the same time things started to turn around for Washington, Stammen began to improve individually as well. After having spent almost the entire 2011 season with the Triple-A Syracuse Chiefs, Stammen gave up no runs on one hit, three walks and 10 strikeouts in 8.1 innings in September for the Nationals. That success has continued this season as Stammen has a 3-1 record and 1.74 ERA in 46.2 innings across 32 appearances out of the bullpen this season. Just like the success of the Nationals, Stammen said his personal upswing dates back to September when he was called up to the big leagues as the rosters expanded in September. At that time he knew if he didn’t pitch well to finish the season, he might not get

another chance, he said. It was at that time that the game started slowing down and he became more comfortable in the Major Leagues, Stammen said. He knows he’ll give up some runs, he said, but feels confident enough in his stuff that he doesn’t feel the need to change anything when he does hit a rough patch. Having gone through the ups and downs, Stammen said it’s fun to be pitching so well for the first-place Nationals. Although he couldn’t ask for a better start to the season, the right-hander said, he knows he can’t let up. “A good three or four months doesn’t make a good career so I’ve got to keep it going,” he said. Stammen faces a lot of competition just within Washington’s staff. The Nationals have the best team ERA in baseball at 3.20 and are holding opponents to See STAMMEN/Page 15A

NL races to 8-0 lead

American League's Jose Bautista, of the Toronto Blue Jays, catches a fly ball hit by National League's Ryan Braun, of the Milwaukee Brewers, during the second inning of the MLB All-Star baseball game, Tuesday in Kansas City, Mo. The game was still in going on a press time.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit the first bases-loaded triple in All-Star game history and the National League raced out to a 8-0 lead against Justin Verlander and the American League through five innings Tuesday night. The portly San Francisco third baseman delivered the big blow during a five-run first inning against Verlander, the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner. Verlander ended up allowing four hits and two walks while throwing 35 pitches in his only inning. Ryan Braun and Dan Uggla also drove in runs for the NL team during the biggest first inning since 2004, when the AL scored six times off Roger Clemens before his hometown fans in Houston. The start couldn’t have been much better for the National League, which was trying to earn home-field advantage in the World Series for the third straight year. The reward sure came in handy last season, when the Cardinals rallied to win the final two games against the Texas Rangers at Busch Stadium to capture their 11th championship. The team with home-field

advantage has won three straight World Series, and six of the last nine. Tony La Russa certainly enjoyed watching his guys circle the bases Tuesday night. The former Cardinals manager retired after last year’s World Series, but was asked to call the shots for the NL team one more time. He had vowed all week to manage the game to win. Verlander was coming off two complete games in his last three starts, and had only allowed seven runs in the first inning all season. But after striking out Carlos Gonzalez to start the game, the Detroit Tigers’ ace immediately ran into trouble, giving up a single to Melky Cabrera and an RBI double to Braun. Verlander recovered to strike out Joey Votto, but walked Carlos Beltran and Buster Posey — the latter on four pitches. Sandoval came to the plate with the bases loaded and hammered a curve off the right-field wall, driving in three runs with his first triple of 2012. Uggla followed with an RBI single to deep shortstop to give the NL a 50 lead.

Baseball cards might fetch millions

AP Photo/Heritage Auctions

THIS UNDATED photo provided by Heritage Auctions of Dallas, shows some of the more than 700 well-preserved 1910 baseball cards found in the attic of a house in Defiance. The best of the bunch — 37 cards — are expected to bring a total of $500,000 when they are sold at auction in August during the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore.

DEFIANCE (AP) — Karl Kissner picked up a soot-covered cardboard box that had been under a wooden dollhouse in his grandfather’s attic. Taking a look inside, he saw hundreds of baseball cards bundled with twine. They were smaller than the ones he was used to seeing. But some of the names were familiar: Hall of Famers Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Honus Wagner. Then he put the box on a dresser and went back to digging through the attic. It wasn’t until two weeks later that he learned that his family had come across what experts say is one of the biggest, most exciting finds in the history of sports card collecting, a discovery worth perhaps millions. The cards are from an extremely rare series issued around 1910. Up to now, the few known to exist were in so-so condition at best, with faded images and worn edges. But the ones from the attic in the town of Defiance are nearly pristine, untouched for more than a century. The colors are vibrant, the borders crisp and white. “It’s like finding the Mona Lisa in the attic,” Kissner said. Sports card experts who authenticated the find say they may never again see something this impressive. “Every future find will ultimately be compared to this,” said Joe Orlando, president of Professional Sports Authenticator. The best of the bunch — 37 cards — are expected to bring a total of $500,000 when they are sold at auction in August during the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore. There are about 700 cards in all that

could be worth up to $3 million, experts say. They include such legends as Christy Mathewson and Connie Mack. Kissner and his family say the cards belonged to their grandfather, Carl Hench, who died in the 1940s. Hench ran a meat market in Defiance, and the family suspects he got them as a promotional item from a candy company that distributed them with caramels. They think he gave some away and kept others. “We guess he stuck them in the attic and forgot about them,” Kissner said. “They remained there frozen in time.” After Hench and his wife died, two of his daughters lived in the house. Jean Hench kept the house until she died last October, leaving everything inside to her 20 nieces and nephews. Kissner, 51, is the youngest and was put in charge of the estate. His aunt was a pack rat, and the house was filled with three generations of stuff. They found calendars from the meat market, turn-of-the-century dresses, a steamer trunk from Germany and a dresser with Grandma’s clothes neatly folded in the drawers. Months went by before they even got to the attic. On Feb. 29, Kissner’s cousin Karla Hench pulled out the dirty green box with metal clips at the corners and lifted the lid. Not knowing whether the cards were valuable, the two cousins put the box aside. But Kissner decided to do a little research. The cards were at his office in the restaurant he owns when he realized they might have something. He immediately took them across the street and put them in a bank vault. See CARDS/Page 14A

He cited a case involving Yankees pitcher Doyle Alexander, who broke a finger when he punched a dugout wall in 1982. “Baseball is a very intense game, and if a player in the intensity of the moment does something, makes a mistake and whams his hand against the dugout or a door and does something or is injured, that’s a work-related injury,” Weiner said. “That’s part of the game. “Clubs want players to compete, to compete very hard, and sometimes those emotions come out. No player is proud of the fact that he injured himself in that kind of situation, but Nick is not the first player this year and certainly not the first player in baseball history who unfortunately suffered that kind of injury. I expect, I certainly hope, that with that kind of precedent that we’ll be able to quickly resolve this matter.”

pany’s director of sports auctions. They then sent all the cards to Professional Sports Authenticator, which had previously authenticated fewer than 700 E98s. The Ohio cards were the finest examples from the E98 series the company had ever seen. The company grades cards on a 1-to-10 scale based of their condition. Up to now, the highest grade it had ever given a Ty Cobb card from the E98 series was a 7. Sixteen Cobbs found in the Ohio attic were graded a 9 — almost perfect. A Honus Wagner was judged a 10, a first for the series. Retired sports card auctioneer Barry Sloate of New York City said: “This is probably the most interesting find I’ve heard of.” The highest price ever paid for a baseball card is $2.8 million, handed over in 2007 for a 1909 Honus Wagner that was pro-

duced by the American Tobacco Co. and included in packs of cigarettes. Another similar Wagner card brought $1.2 million in April. (Wagner’s tobacco cards were pulled from circulation, either because the ballplayer didn’t want to encourage smoking among children or because he wanted more money.) Heritage Auctions plans to sell most of the

Ohio cards over the next two of three years through auctions and private sales so that it doesn’t flood the market. In all, they could bring $2 million or $3 million, Ivy said. The Hench family is evenly dividing the cards and the money among the 20 cousins named in their aunt’s will. All but a few have decided to sell their share.

Still not knowing whether the cards were real, they sent eight to expert Peter Calderon at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, which recently sold the baseball that rolled through the legs of Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner in the 1986 World Series for $418,000. Calderon said his first words were “Oh, my God.” “I was in complete awe,” he said. “You just don’t see them this nice.” The cards are from what is known as the E98 series. It is not clear who manufactured them or how many were produced, but the series consists of 30 players, half of them Hall of Famers. The experts at Heritage Auctions checked out the family’s background, the age of the home and the history of the meat market. They looked at the cards and how they were printed. “Everything lines up,” said Chris Ivy, the com-

If you have any of the above, there are effective treatment options, covered by insurances.

It’s all so confusing to us old folks. Back in May, Hamels drills Harper in the ribs for being a brash rookie who is famous for being famous. Harper was the kid who blew a kiss at a pitcher while rounding the bases on a home run. He was the most decorated rookie ever to enter the majors. So, Hamels drills him for being famous, Harper then steals home on Hamels, maybe the best payback ever. But he is not cocky or brash, but classy. I thought that was an “in your face” moment if ever there was one. Now Harper is Hamels’ teammate, on the National League AllStar team, an eighthome run and 25-RBI All-Star, while at least five others with deserving stats won’t be. Fan voting at its finest. The perfect summation for all this confusion is to say, “It is what it is.” I love that line — it allows us to accept something without good reason. Let’s face it, marketing dollars and television have become more important than competition and credibility at this game and every game, except golf. The All-Star game, in whatever form presented, will get major media attention, a significant national TV audience and have a profound effect on the Kansas City economy. No matter who does the voting, who makes the roster or how memorable the competition, the game will be an event and it will satisfy sponsors. Maybe that’s all we should ask of it? Me, I’m just an old confused guy who remembers when it did both.




KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The baseball players’ union may file a grievance against the Cleveland Indians if they withhold pay from pitcher Nick Hagadone, who injured a hand in frustration. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said the left-hander was hurt after a bad relief outing against Tampa Bay on Friday night and said the injury was self-inflicted. The 26-year-old rookie gave up two hits, walked two and allowed two runs while recording two outs. Cleveland optioned Hagadone to the minors Saturday then placed him on their minor league disqualification list the following day. His next payday is Sunday, and he has a contract calling for a $480,500 salary in the major leagues and $78,250 in the minors. “If Nick is not paid what he in our view is supposed to be paid on July 15, then we’ll have a fight about it,” Union head Michael Weiner told the Baseball Writers’ As-

lowing anyone other than the manager and his coaches to influence the nonstarting rosters is a travesty. Enter the selection of Bryce Harper as a replacement in this year’s game. First, understand I have a great respect for Harper’s game and his presence as a first-year player, and believe in time he has what it takes to become a perennial All-Star. The greatest compliment I could give him is to say he plays the game the way Pete did. I also understand that he has nothing to do with the selection process, that he is just going along with the program and will have to absorb the accompanying negative reaction. Baseball just doesn’t get it. Jason Kubel has 15 home runs and 60 RBIs, Aaron Hill has 11 and 40, Hunter Pence has 16 and 50, Aramis Ramirez has 10 and 52 and Jason Heyward has 14 and 41, just to name five players who deserve it. These guys, based on their first-half performance, must give way to a player the fans want to see in a game. It’s not consistent with such a heavy reward for winning the game. Each manager really wants to pick a team he can win with, balanced and able to create the right matchups in late innings. Harper has All-Star talent and might even display it in the game. I wouldn’t put it past him to rope a double and end up on third and score the winning run by stealing home. The first one to shake his hand, of course, will be Cole Hamels.


Union might CARDS file grievance


I was on 12 All-Star rosters, most as a legit All-Star deserving of the honor of representing the National League as one of that year’s best players. In 1980, I missed the game with a pulled muscle. And in 1989, I was voted to the team as a starter after I had retired. In each case the replacement was a player deserving and capable of carrying out the assignment in my place. His first-half body of work that season was rewarded. Back then, the fans picked the game’s starters. That’s all, the starters. The managers picked the remainder of the roster so that as the game progressed into the deciding innings, each league would have its best on the field. Every year, the fan voting is skewed to elect players based on popularity, not on production. That’s OK because the game has been labeled “for the fans.” This game for the fans, however, now carries a significant prize: World Series home field, which is why the field personnel must decide on the final roster. The All-Star game has become the black sheep event of Bud Selig’s tenure as baseball commissioner. Try as he might, he can’t get it to where it once was. Back in the day, it was a game each league wanted to win. Willie Mays was picked for 24 All-Star games and played nine innings in many. When I started my run in the ’70s, reporting to the game

ally, and guess what, so was his. It was the best in one league against the best in the other. A classic confrontation. That’s what’s missing. It’s hard to put into words. In baseball today, the game is just not set up to create those kind of Reggie Jackson vs. Bob Gibson or Hank Aaron vs. Jim Palmer confrontations at the AllStar game. Those moments were its essence. Facing a legend, not because he was famous for being famous, but because of the mystery, the respect, facing someone I had only heard stories about, someone who was going to set up a moment in time that all fans, and we in the game would remember for a long time. About six years ago, I was asked to head a committee of Hall of Famers to study the AllStar game and report to the commissioner on ways to improve its competitiveness and the experience for the players. Our efforts led us to several conclusions, which have not gained any strength — with one exception, that the game be played on Wednesday, not Tuesday. Others ideas included a nominal financial reward for the winning league and players; Hall of Famers from each league acting as honorary coaches; and a private dinner gala exclusively for players and coaches, where today’s players would get an opportunity to visit the history of the game. As for tying the AllStar game and World Series home-field advantage, you have no idea how important that is until you are in the Series and don’t have it. Al-

STAMMEN the lowest batting average in baseball at .231. They also have two allstars on their pitching staff – Gio Gonzalez and Stephen Strasburg. With so much talent on the roster, Stammen said he has to pitch extremely well just to keep up with his teammates. “I almost have to be perfect to keep up with the other guys,” Stammen said. The success of Washington’s pitching staff begins with the starting pitchers, Stammen said. Gonzalez, Strasburg, Edwin Jackson, Jordan Zimmermann, Ross Detwiler and Chien-Ming Wang go six or seven innings almost every night, which in turn helps the bullpen, Stammen said. With the second half of the season about to start, Stammen said, the Nationals’ staff is looking to remain atop the league. “I think it’s a personal pride issue for us that we

stay at the top of the league,” he said. As a team, Washington’s main focus is winning the National League East and securing a trip to the postseason. At that point, anything can happen. “You just have to get a ticket to the dance,” Stammen said. Having not been in the playoff chase for several years, the Nationals have a lot of players who don’t have experience competing for a division title down the stretch. It’s still to be seen how they’ll respond to the new challenge, Stammen said, but the team has a few veterans who can help guide them through it. Individually, Stammen hopes to duplicate the great first half of the season in the upcoming months. “It’s everything I expected and a little more,” Stammen said.

Hemric wins fifth race DEGRAFF — After surviving a late race dual with 14-year-old Anderson Bowen, it would be Daniel Hemric who continues to show he’s the man to beat in JEGS/CRA competition as the Kannapolis, N.C., driver took the lead for the final time on lap 94 and held on for his fifth event win in seven starts leading into the halfway break for the 2012 racing season. Hemric’s 54 Jack Link’s Beef Jerky/Chevrolet fended off the hard charging Howie Lettow Memorial Rookie of the Year Presented by Howe Racing Enterprises Points Leader Bowen, who settled for second while Tom Woodin, who led the first 38 laps, finished a career high third over 19-year-old Ali Kern who came home with a career-high fourth as Josh Nelms recovered from multiple pit stops to finish off the top five. Chad Finley finished

sixth after suffering a late race flat left rear tire while 13-year-old Justin Peck was seventh ahead of Tommy Cook, Wes Griffith Jr. and David Carter who wrapped up the final top 10. The race was redflagged for a grinding backchute crash on lap three involving several cars. Brandon Oakley seemed to get the worst of it, as his car suffured heavy damage. No drivers were injured. In additon to the Jeg’s Series, the street stocks, tuners and compacts were also racing. The street stock main saw Springhill’s Steve Snapp lead all 20 laps to post the win in his Roger Winget Race Cars Chevelle. Brian Reeser was second for the second straight week, with Landon Sciaaca third, Mike Snapp fourth and fast qualifier Rodney Roush fifth. Sciaaca won his first ever dash, with Ricky Young winning the heat.

The 20-lap tuner feature saw Chad Small lead the first six counters before giving way to Kelsey Flynn. Flynn held the point until lap 12, when Pleasant Hill driver Matt Stone cruised by. Stone went on to post his third win in his Glassman backed Honda after holding off a late race charge by fast qualifier Gary Eaton. Eaton was trying to pick up a $650 bonus for himself and lucky fan Pete Fondong in the Hot Rodz Auto Sales Challenge. It was not to be, as Eaton just ran out of power when trying to pass Stone. Kevin Flynn, Kelsey Flynn and Jeremy Meade rounded out the top five. The compact main saw New Carlisle’s Matt Jackson once again put his T-Mobile Broadband Cavalier in victory lane. Dylan Troyer was second, with Jim Massengill third. This Saturday will be the Bill Hostetler Classic

Community Services Director Barbara Dulworth opened the discussion by addressing swimming pool code “misinformed perceptions and information passed from resident to resident,” and recommended amending only “a confusing transcription error in the definition of a swimming pool.” She told council that of 111 violations cited from March 31 to June 25, 63 are now in compliance or working toward compliance, 13 have indicated action is forthcoming and 30 have made no contact with the city. During its legislative session, Monday night, council adopted separate ordinances combining the current job classifications of assistant city manager and public works director into a single staff position, also amending the city’s organization chart to include the new job and providing compensation for the individual. The first ordinance

also amends the listing of overtime-exempt employees to add assistant city manager/public works director. A second ordinance adds the new position to the city’s organization chart. It also moves functions of the Information Technology and Purchasing departments under the responsibility of the finance officer and responsibility for the Service Center building to the Shelby Public Transit manager. The Human Resources director will now report directly to the city manager. The final ordinance amends the city’s senior director pay table to add the assistant manager/public works director ($81,000 to $99,000) and remove the separate assistant manager ($82,195 to $102,502) and public works director ($78,281 to $97,620) positions. The ordinance also amends the table to add the utilities director, at pay grade ($65,686 to $81, 848), formerly with a salary range of up to

$89,629, and no longer a senior director. The utility director will now report to the assistant manager public works director. The personnel changes follow the resignation of Assistant City Manager Tom Judy last month and the earlier retirement of Public Works director Chris Clark. City Manager Mark Cundiff is currently interviewing candidates for the newly-created position. Council also introduced an ordinance amending the zoning code to add tanning salons to the B-2 district, removing them from the B-5 Court Square business district and an ordinance rezoning a Fourth Avenue property from single family residential designation to Community Business district. The legislation corrects a situation in which an existing salon in the B-2 district applied for a new certificate of occupancy and staff discovered tanning was not a permitted use

Schools perform well on OGT The results were recently released for the Ohio Graduation Tests, which students took in March. Fairlawn Local School District This is the second year that Fairlawn has led the area with its results. Fairlawn principal Jo DeMotte credits the district’s goal of continually improving while dealing with change. “The success that we are having is a direct result of our staff and students embracing a culture of change,” said DeMotte. “No longer are they afraid of all of the changes that have been occurring in education in the last few years, but they are embracing it as it comes along.” Fairlawn Local Schools tested 45 students on all five parts of the OGT, and 98 percent of those tested passed the reading, mathematics and writing portions of the test, 93 percent passed science, and 96 percent passed social studies. Fairlawn received the prestigious Excellent with Distinction rating on its report card from the Ohio Department of Education this year, and DeMotte said it’s due in part to the staff working continually to improve. “At Fairlawn we strive for sustainable continuous improvement,” said DeMotte. “Our Race to the Top Team meets to develop focused professional development programming that stresses writing across the curriculum, short cycle assessments and the new common core standards. Our staff is involved in quarterly meetings with the administration to focus on improving them professionally. Communication throughout the district is the key to our continued success.” Minster Local School District also performed very well on the OGT. 100 percent of the students who took the test passed the writing portion of the test. On the math portion, 99 percent of students passed, 96 percent passed reading, 97 percent passed social

Fairlawn High School students to use iPads in coming school year BY JENNIFER BUMGARNER Students in Fairlawn Local Schools will have a new school supply this year. Along with their textbooks students will also have an iPad. The school district is beginning a new program that will allow students to use iPads during the school day. This program will be offered to students in grades 9 to 12 this coming school year. According to Fairlawn principal Jo DeMotte, the district has gotten favorable feedback about the program. “Students are excited about the opportunity to advance their technological skills and enhance their learning,” said DeMotte. “Parents who have explored the learning opportunities are very positive and look forward to the program beginning.” This program was designed to achieve several specific goals that include increasing student access to content, increasing collaboration between students and teachers, creating individualized learning experi-

ences, increasing student engagement, fostering critical thinking skills and preparing students for the 21st century. The program is being funded through the general fund, and the district also received additional grant money through the Peer Assisted Review grant, the Assistive Technology grant and the AVID grant to support the program. The district decided to implement the program after they saw the benefits at another school. “A team of staff members visited Defiance High School who has already implemented a one to one iPad program,” said DeMotte. “The team saw many benefits educationally for our students. From there through discussions with the Fairlawn Board of Education, it was decided that this was the most appropriate educational tool currently on the market and that it offers the most versatility for use in the classroom.” The iPad program will also benefit younger students as Fairlawn will incorporate mobile iPad carts

for lower grade level classrooms. With this new technology, teachers will be attending staff development during the summer and throughout the school year. There are different options for students to participate in the program. All students in grades 9 to 12 will participate. Students who own their own iPad will be allowed to use it during the school day, and the district is also allowing students to purchase an iPad 2 for $380 and a cover for an additional $45. The final payment is due Aug. 15 for an iPad purchased through the district. The advantages for students who own their own iPad will be they can put their own applications on the device and have unlimited access to it. Students with their own device will need to use a school filter during school and will still need to sign the acceptable use and other required forms. Students can also use a school-owned iPad 2 and pay a maintenance fee of $125. The fee must be paid by Aug. 15. For students who use this option, they will have unlimited access

to the device but will not be allowed to put personal applications on it. The iPads will be issued on Aug. 15 or by the first day of school. It depends on when the parent agreement is signed. The final option for students is to use the iPad only during the school hours. These students will not be charged a maintenance fee, but the iPad will picked up in the morning and turned in at the end of each day. By having several options the district hopes this new program will help increase communication with parents. “Twenty-four hour, sevenday-a-week access and digital communication with parents were two of the main reasons to start the program as well,” said DeMotte. “Current applications and software were two more reasons we went with iPads.” Parent and student required meetings are being held on Aug. 15, in the school cafeteria at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Every student and parent in grades 9 to 12 must attend in order to sign documents for the program.

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.
