Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, to contact a local business owner who could weigh See SOLLMANN/Page 12A

DAYTON — Resurrection liturgy for Precious Blood Sister M. Yvonne Voisard, 94, will be held at Salem Heights Chapel, 4960 Salem Ave., Dayton, on Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. Visitation was held at the Chapel Tuesday, July 31 and today, Aug. 1, from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. On Sunday, July 29, 2012, Sister died at Emma Hall in the Maria Joseph Living Care Center in Dayton. Yvonne had been a Sister of the Precious Blood for 79 years. One of eight children born to Leo and Margaret (Marchal) Voisard, Irma was born in Russia, on Aug. 31, 1917. At the age of 16, Irma formally entered the Congregation of the Sisters of the Precious Blood on Sept. 7, 1933. She was known in religious life as Sister Mary Yvonne. “Religious Life,” said Yvonne at her 75th anniversary, “has been a great gift to me from God.” Sister enjoyed teaching grades 5-12 for 17 years in Cleveland, Egypt and Glandorf, where she was wellloved by her students. At the request of her superiors, she ministered for the next 15 years in formation work, during which she gave much guidance to those new to religious life. Later, she
became involved in the study of the retreat movement and ministered at the Maria Stein Retreat House as its director. Nine years later, she spent a year studying spirituality in Gloucester, Mass. “This experience,” she wrote, had resulted “in deep abiding love for quiet prayer before the Lord and an eagerness to help others grow in the same intimacy.” This deep experience prepared her to become pastoral minister at Queen of Martyrs Parish in Dayton and during nine summers, the director of a month-long House of Prayer experience enjoyed by her religious sisters. In 1995, Yvonne retired and at Salem Heights lived a life of prayer, playing cards, reading and crocheting. Due to failing health, she moved in 2006 to Emma Hall. Sister M. Yvonne is survived by her sisters, Elfrieda Borchers, of Russia, and in religion, Sister Carmen Voisard, of Dayton. She is also survived by nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her sisters, Mildred Moorman, Cecilia Borchers and Sister Mary Louise Voisard, and her brothers, Joseph Voisard and Raymond Voisard. Internment will be in the Salem Heights Cemetery.

IN THIS Nov. 17, 2004, file photo, Rep. Steven LaTourette, R-Ohio, gestures during an interview with the Associated Press in his on Capitol Hill in Washington. Citing frustration with the climate in Congress, LaTourette has announced he will retire.
LaTourette set to retire PAINESVILLE (AP) — Republican Rep. Steven LaTourette of Ohio, a nine-term lawmaker and a close confidant of House Speaker John Boehner, said Tuesday he was frustrated with the political stalemate in Washington and won’t seek re-election. LaTourette told reporters in his district northeast of Cleveland that the political environment in Washington works against compromise. “It’s been my experience that compromise, cooperation, getting something done, is not rewarded,” he said. “The group of people that are interested in that type of result — the circle’s becoming smaller and smaller.’” LaTourette cited in particular his support for a bipartisan budget compromise, known as SimpsonBowles, which got 38 votes in the 435-member House. “There’s only so many times you can run your head into a cement wall,” he said.
Mom, daughter accused of theft Teen admits guilt CINCINNATI (AP) — A mother and daughter have been charged with stealing some $260,000 from a southwest Ohio village, allegedly pocketing traffic fines being paid in an Interstate 75 community long reputed to be a speed trap, a prosecutor said Tuesday. Former Arlington employees Heights Donna Covert, 52, and Laura Jarvis, 32, were each indicted by a Hamilton County grand jury on two counts of theft in office, along with two counts of tampering with records and one property-misuse count. Prosecutors say the thefts, which have been under investigation for about two years, were
carried out in 20072010. An Ohio auditor’s report studying 20082009 village records last year found lack of close record keeping on traffic tickets and fines, or of deposits of money paid in fines Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters suggested that the tiny village should be dissolved, saying Arlington Heights and its some 800 people could be absorbed by surrounding municipalities. “The village seems to be nothing more than a speed trap with no checks or balances,” Deters said in a statement. “Two of its employees were using it as their personal cookie jar.”
LEBANON (AP) — A 17-year-old high school student accused of being a drug “czar” with six teenage lieutenants admitted Tuesday that he was guilty of the charges against him at his first appearance in juvenile court. The thin, bespectacled teen had the choice to admit to or deny two felony drug trafficking charges against him in Warren County Juvenile

Court in Lebanon. Those options are the juvenile court’s version of pleading guilty or not guilty. Judge Mike Powell warned the teen before he admitted guilt that he could potentially be in prison until he turns 21. “I want to make sure you understand the significance of admitting to these crimes and the consequences of those admissions,” Powell said.

OUT OF THE BLUE
Couple, 85, to remarry BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — They got hitched while still in their teens, divorced 20 years and four children later, and are getting remarried after nearly a halfcentury apart. For Lena Henderson and Roland Davis, both 85 years old, the second time around is finally here. The couple plans to get married again on Saturday, with four generations on hand to see it happen. “It’s every child’s dream, every child who has ever been in a family where divorce has occurred, that your parents would come back together,” their youngest daughter, Renita Chadwick, said Tuesday as wedding preparations were in full swing. “We are all so ridiculously excited. We’re like little children again,” said Chadwick, herself a grandmother. Henderson and Davis met as teenagers in Chattanooga, Tenn., and were married by a justice of the peace. There was no reception or honeymoon. “Oh no,” Henderson recalled with a laugh. “He went to work and I went home.” Davis was a hotel bellhop at the time, about to begin a career in the military.

Blackout! No power in India NEW DELHI (AP) — Electric crematoria were snuffed out with bodies inside, New Delhi’s Metro shut down and hundreds of coal miners were trapped underground after three Indian electric grids collapsed in a cascade Tuesday, cutting power to 620 million people in the world’s biggest blackout. While Indians were furious and embarrassed, many took the crisis in stride, inured by the constant — though far less widespread — outages triggered by the huge electricity deficit stymieing the development of this would-be Asian power. Hospitals, factories and the airports switched automatically to their diesel generators during the hours-long cut across half of India. Many homes relied on backup systems powered by truck batteries. And hundreds of millions of India’s poorest had no electricity to lose. “The blackout might have been huge, but it wasn’t unbearably long,” said Satish, the owner of a coffee and juice shop in central Delhi who uses only one name. “It was just as bad as any other fivehour power cut. We just used a generator while the light was out, and it was work as usual.” The crisis was the second record-breaking outage in two

AN INDIAN man prepares a meal as others sit at a roadside shop on a dark street following a power outage near a railway station in Allahabad, India, Tuesday. India’s energy crisis cascaded over half the country Tuesday when three of its regional grids collapsed, leaving 620 million people without government-supplied electricity for several hours in, by far, the world's biggest blackout. days. India’s northern grid failed Monday, leaving 370 million people powerless for much of the day, in a collapse blamed on states that drew more than their allotment of power. At 1:05 p.m. Tuesday, the northern grid collapsed again, energy officials said. This
time, it took the eastern grid and the northeastern grid with it. In all, 20 of India’s 28 states — with double the population of the United States — were hit in a region stretching from the border with Myanmar in the northeast to the Pakistani border about 3,000 kilometers (1,870 miles) away.
Hundreds of trains stalled across the country and traffic lights went out, causing widespread jams in New Delhi. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee asked office workers to go home and rushed generators to coal mines to rescue trapped miners.
The Who fans trade in 1979 concert tickets PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — It was December 1979 when Emery Lucier learned the concert he was eagerly awaiting in Rhode Island by British rock band The Who had been canceled over safety concerns. The 17-year-old was so angry he knocked over a chair in his high school classroom. “I just remember being so upset about the whole thing,” he said. Lucier, now 50, of Milford, Mass., held onto the ticket, for which he paid $25 ($12.50 for the ticket and $12.50 more for the scalper). On Tuesday, he and nine other people traded in tickets from that canceled show and got new ones for The Who’s final appearance on its Quadrophenia tour in February at the Dunkin Donuts Center, the same venue it was supposed to play 33 years ago. The venue’s general manager, Lawrence Lepore, said earlier this month he would honor tickets for the 1979 show, which then-Mayor Buddy Cianci canceled after a stampede before a Who concert in Ohio killed 11 people. Any 1979 tickets the venue receives will be donated to the Special Olympics of Rhode Island, which plans an August eBay auction of the 14 tickets turned in on Tuesday. Ed McConnell, now 50, was a high school student in Pawtucket and planned to attend
the concert with about 15 friends. He said he remembers the disappointment when he heard the concert was canceled, and even now can list reasons why it was a bad decision, among them that the concert had assigned seats and not festival seating — which is what was blamed for the stampede in Cincinnati. “I still don’t agree with it,” McConnell said after trading in his and his brother’s tickets for the show. McConnell said he met Cianci once and took the opportunity to complain. Sandy Ball exchanged two tickets that her brother, Stephen, now of Colonial Heights, Va., had waited in line for overnight when he was a college freshman. The tickets have moved 16 times since then with Stephen, who was in the military. Ball said her family remembers the day when he learned the show was canceled. “We had to talk him off the cliff,” she said. Barry Belotti, now 53, of Fitchburg, Mass., estimates he’s seen The Who 100 times but still remembers the canceled show in Providence. He had second-row tickets and had bought several other tickets for friends to come along. “We were pretty upset about it,” he said. He got a refund on most of
Romney to introduce himself to voters NEW YORK (AP) — Mitt Romney has been on the national political stage for nearly a decade — through two presidential bids, countless campaign events and millions spent on TV ads. But the likely Republican presidential nominee still isn’t well-known to most voters. So now he’s trying to fix that. With less than 100 days until the Nov. 6 election, Romney is starting to introduce himself to them in earnest — through a combination of carefully selected media appearances and biographical ads — before President Barack Obama’s efforts to define him in a negative light cripple his candidacy. “I got the chance to start my own business … I went
off to have the chance at running the Olympics in Salt Lake City in 2002 … The real experience was in Massachusetts,” the former governor says in a new television commercial released Tuesday that features him on the campaign trail, in factories and with his wife, Ann, by his side. “I want to use those experiences to help Americans have a better future.” Until now, Romney has emphasized his record at the private equity firm Bain Capital, giving Obama and other Democrats the chance to portray him in their ads as an out-of-touch corporate raider and job killer. The new ad is an effort to deflect that barrage by letting him round out that biography by touching aspects of it that he hasn’t stressed in the past.

EMERY LUCIER, 50, of Milford, Mass., holds a ticket for a canceled 1979 concert by The Who outside the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., Tuesday. Lucier was among fans who redeemed tickets from a canceled 1979 show, for The Who's Quadrophenia show set to play there in February 2013. Their 1979 concert was cancelled due to safety concerns after 11 people died in a stampede before a show in Ohio. the tickets after the show was canceled but kept one as a memento in a binder filled with newspaper clippings about the band and photos of singer Pete Townsend. Belotti said he is planning to see the band play on four or five stops on this tour, one he’s especially looking forward to because it’s playing the 1973 album “Quadrophenia,” which is especially meaningful for him. “It was very instrumental in my adolescence,” Belotti
said. “Townsend’s writing, he was talking about me.” As for Lucier, he never got a chance to see The Who perform after that canceled 1979 show, until now. He’s held onto the ticket for decades. After he heard he could exchange his old ticket for a new one, he started digging and found it in a box with about 65 other stubs. The one for The Who was the only one that wasn’t ripped.
Aleppo running low on food amid siege BEIRUT (AP) — Food and cooking gas were in short supply and power cuts plunged homes into darkness as soldiers and rebels battled Tuesday to tip the scales in the fight for Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and the current focus of its civil war. Life for Aleppo’s 3 million residents was becoming increasingly unbearable as a military siege entered its 11th day. While rebels seized two police stations, Syrian ground forces pummeled the opposition strongholds of Salaheddine and Seif al-Dawla in the city’s southwest, activists said. Government helicopters also pounded those neighborhoods. “The regime couldn’t enter the neighborhoods so they were shelling from a distance with helicopters and artillery,” said Mohammed Nabehan, who fled Aleppo for the Kilis refugee camp just across the Turkish border some 30 miles (50 kilometers) away. Nabehan and others said it was a struggle to find food. “The humanitarian situation here is very bad,” Mohammed Saeed, an activist living in the city, told The Associated Press by Skype. “There is not enough food and people are trying to leave. We really need support from the outside. There is random shelling against civilians,” he added. “The city has pretty much run out of cooking gas, so people are cooking on open flames or with electricity, which cuts out a lot.” Days of shelling have forced many civilians to flee to other neighborhoods or even escape the city altogether. The U.N. said Sunday that 200,000 had left Aleppo.

Lehman violinists in area youth orchestra Gloria Pugh, director of education of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, has announced that Lehman Catholic High School juniors Grace Jackson and Grace Winhoven have been accepted into the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra for the coming school year. Both students play violin and will be part of the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Strings, directed by Dr. Betsey Hofeldt. It will be Winhoven’s third year of participation and Jackson’s second. Chosen through competitive audition, students in the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and Youth Strings represent more than two dozen schools throughout Dayton and the surrounding region. The Youth Strings is a training program for the Youth Orchestra. Students in grades 6 through 12 are eligible to audition. Winhoven studies with Kathy Douds and Jack-
son studies with Michelle Roeke. “Being in the Youth Strings has really helped my sight reading and my ability to play with other people,” said Jackson, who also plays clarinet in the Lehman marching and concert bands and sings in the Lehman Limelighters Show Choir. “Ormusic has chestra challenging key and time signatures and the experience has helped me grow as a musician. I am really excited to be in the Youth Strings for a second year.” “You can audition as early as sixth grade but I waited until the end of eighth grade,” said Winhoven. “We had to play a prepared solo and scales, and sight read an unfamiliar piece. I was very surprised that I made it the first time I auditioned.” Winhoven began her violin training at DeColores Montessori School in Greenville. Everyone in that school of 150 stu-
dents begins on a stringed instrument in the second grade. Unlike her classmate, Jackson did not start violin until the seventh grade when she transferred to DeColores Montessori from Miami Montessori in Troy. Both girls chose to attend Lehman for high school even though the school does not have an orchestra. Jackson joined the band, but both girls, along with another Greenville Montessori graduate, Rachel Remencus, have been playing their stringed instruments during communion reflection time at school Masses. The daughter of Jeff and Laura Jackson of Piqua, Jackson has also played a violin solo at the Ohio Music Education Association High School Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event in addition to playing in a clarinet ensemble. Winhoven is the daughter of Joe and Carrie Winhoven of Greenville.

Town’s Olympic hopes dashed
Preserve past for future generations To the editor: On Tuesday, the County-Wide Historical Alliance is asking the voting citizens of Shelby County to help us preserve, display and use as learning tools the important artifacts that have been donated and collected in the past and the items we will receive in the future. Our organization is composed of members of each of the county historical societies — Anna, Botkins, Jackson Center, Fort Loramie and the Shelby County Historical Society in Sidney. The county commissioners have shown their wisdom in allowing the voters to decide this issue. In the past our societies received some funding from the county general fund but they have not been able to do this in recent years due to the downturn of the economy. It is quite expensive to have historical items preserved that have been lying around in an attic for many years. As an example, a few items belonging to the Anna society are clothing, a drum set, a puppet and hand-written show scripts from vaudeville days. The money collected from this levy would go into the county general fund, then to the alliance, and then be distributed to each society as spelled out in a revenue agreement signed by each organization. If your property value is $100,000, you would pay a mere $7.88 per year — about the cost of one McDonald’s combo meal. We feel this isn’t a very big sacrifice per family, but it would be so helpful and so appreciated by the members who are trying to preserve the past for our younger generation — and future generations to come — so they will be better able to understand the ways of life before they were born. Anna’s society would like to present programs at school, or maybe at the Village Park, and also have a newsletter mailing. Our long-range plans include renting or purchasing a “home” where we can better display our historical items. Our museum is now in the lobby of the Town Hall. We invite everyone to come in and enjoy it. Kathleen A. Eshleman 202 N. Linden Ave. Anna

2 cents a day to preserve history
Where is your story? Check out any Shelby County historical society and see history in action. Ancestry websites are fast-growing. We have artifacts, articles and clothing from possibly your ancestors that tell your story. The historical societies provide a wealth of knowledge to all who enter. It is not a hobby but a way of life. All local schools, organizations, residents from the community, outside the community and out of state have benefited from programs through the historical museums. A picture is worth a thousand words but having a historical museum is priceless. The cost of the levy has a price as well. It is $7.88 per year for the average homeowner, or 2 cents a day. Not preserving our artifacts and heritage is what will really cost us in the end. Doug Ware 18240 Montra Road Jackson Center
To the editor: The Shelby County Historical Society, with headquarters in the Ross Historical Center in downtown Sidney, joined forces with historical groups in Anna, Botkins, Fort Loramie and Jackson Center to form the County-Wide Historical Alliance Inc. We share a love of history and have a common purpose: survival. None of us receive any public funding, but our public purpose could not be more important — we are the keepers of our priceless heritage and its key artifacts. Just a short time ago, the Jackson Center Historical Society received a Civil War flag made by the women in the community for their husbands, sons and fathers to carry into battle. Though their society takes care of the flag with great pride, the reality is they cannot afford to heat or air-condition their building, and each day the flag deteriorates just a little more. This same circumstance is true in three out of the five area historical societies who cannot afford to heat and air-condition their buildings year round. You can help save artifacts just like this Civil War flag by supporting the tax levy. The young people of our community search for a way to learn how their ancestors have helped create their present world. That is why the Shelby County Historical Society hosts educational programs like Pioneer Day, Coming to America, Civil War Day, Christmas of Yesteryear and many, many more throughout the year. It allows the youth of our community to learn that life long ago was just as hard as it is today and in most instances harder. They learn how members of their community have changed their world. The Shelby County Historical Society helps youth of our community understand that their ancestors have given them a foundation to go out and change the world for future generations. Please vote “yes” Tuesday for the County-Wide Historical Alliance tax levy. The cost to the average homeowner will be 2 cents a day and the benefit to our future generations will be priceless. Tilda Phlipot, Director Shelby County Historical Society
More teens should Big Four Bridge be in Boy scouts should be repaired To the editor I belive that more young men in their teenage years should participate in Boy Scouts of America. It can help the young men become even better young men than they already are. It can help teach them responsibility, among other things. It shows that they can commit to something and finish it. It may take hard work, but in the end you feel very good about it. It can help guys go on the straight path. It teaches them discipline. Corey Saunders 14557 Charm Hill Drive
To the editor: I think the Big Four Railroad bridge should be repaired to its original shape. The reason why I say this is because it is a historical bridge. I imagine the Big Four bridge, when it was in its full glory, was quite beautiful. Over the years it has been slowly falling apart and nothing has been done to fix it. I believe it is an eyesore — so that’s why it should be fixed. Tom Dunn 1084 Colonial Drive

Future of health care remains 2 News welcomes new anchor uncertain, hospital officials say as Obamacare, have not been written, Bucklew said. Between now and 2014, when the new law goes into effect, people will experience higher health care costs and issues accessing care, Bucklew said. Rep. Richard Adams, R-Troy, said the Ohio General Assembly, like most individuals who don’t have enough information to make a decision, will wait before deciding exactly how to provide health insurance required under the law. Today, 39 cents out of every $1 in sales and income taxes in the state goes to pay for Medicaid for more than 1 million adults and children, he said. That amount will only continue to grow, he said. “Until we get all of the information we need, we aren’t going to do any-
thing in spite of lot of pressure from some to do at least something,” Adams said. Tom Parker, president and CEO of Upper Valley Medical Center, said more focus will be on creating healthier workforces and keeping people out of the hospital. Reform, he said, “will put a screeching stop to the old ways.” As an example of focusing on healthier workforces, Parker pointed to the city of Piqua’s plans for an inhouse wellness clinic for employees. Piqua City Manager Gary Huff, said a similar program used in Indiana, where he previously worked, saved $700,000 in health care costs a year for the city. The idea is “to move beyond penalties for employee health issues to something that works,” Huff said. Even with all the
changes in health care and on the horizon, Upper Valley Medical Center continues to be a busy place, Parker said. He noted the hospital had a record number of both emergency department visits and hospital admissions in 2011. The hospital is working closely with other providers to help divert people, when possible, from expensive emergency department treatParker said. ment, UVMC has joined forces with Miami County Health Partners, Hospice of Miami County and the newest, Miami County Dental Clinic. The number of people seeking care at the emergency department for chronic dental problems pointed to the growing need to open up access for local residents to dental services, Parker said.

Dealer representatives will be on hand to demonstrate both John Deere and competitive equipment and answer questions. Aaron Koenig, C&CE sales manager at Koenig Equipment, said one of the most popular features of the Drive Green events is the chance for
customers to drive the equipment, kick the tires and speak with knowledgeable equipment experts. “The Drive Green events give customers a one-stop opportunity to size up different utility tractors so they can find out exactly what horsepower tractor will best fit their property and the jobs they want to accomplish,” Koenig said. “It’s a great way to understand how to choose the right size attachments and implements so that they get the most from their equipment investment.” Koenig added, “At the same time, we want to

Stewart, Kahne win top honors at fair The third time was the charm for Taylor Stewart, 18, of Sidney, and her golden retriever, Kahne. Stewart won the Outstanding Dog Exhibitor trophy at the 2012 Shelby County Junior Fair 4-H Dog Show Saturday. She had competed in 2010 and 2011 with Kahne and tied for the High Point Obedience Award in 2011. She got a second one of those Saturday. That award was sponsored by Happy Trails Pet Grooming. The Outstanding Dog Exhibitor prize was sponsored by the Pence family. Stewart recently graduated from Fairlawn High School and the Upper Valley Career Center and is looking for a job in the floral industry. Will she continue to show dogs as an adult? “I don’t know yet,” The Paw Prints 4-H Club member said. And what had she done differently this year to move Kahne into the top dog spot? “I worked with him and loved on him,” she said. She had previously shown a dachsund, Shorty, in fair shows. Before the competition began, dogs were calm and handlers were nervous backstage. Grace Burton, 13, of Sidney, was getting ready for her first dog show. The daughter of Heather and Jon Burton is a member of Doggone 4-H Club. She was showing Ajax, a 1-year, 4-month-old golden doodle. “I tried (watching) it last year and it was pretty fun, so I decided I wanted to perform this year,” she said. “We’ve done a lot of practicing with the 4-H club.” Ben Wical, 13, the son of Belinda and Dale Wical, of Sidney, got a third-place ribbon last year and was back to try again with his shihtese, Molly. “We’ve done lots of practicing,” he said. “Doing the same stuff over and over.” He, too, is in the Doggone 4-H Club. Astro, a 4-year-old black Lab/boxer mix, was selected by his owner, Audrey Christman, 11, of Sidney, from among the five dogs her family owns because, “he pays more attention,” she said. The daughter of Dan and

Carolyn Christman was participating in the fair dog show for the third time. Her family also owns a basset hound, Buster; a beagle, Puppy; and two Lab/Australian shepherd mix dogs, Mega and Daisy. “I tried to show Buster and it didn’t work,” Christman said. Two-year-old Tucker, a schnauzer/poodle mix, was eager to stand up and get going. Katelyn Moore, 12, of Anna, Tucker’s owner, is the daughter of John and Jenny Moore. “The hardest thing to work on was obedience, because he’s stubborn,” she said of Tucker, who helped her to a sixthplace ribbon last year. This year’s judges were from Bucyrus and Sandusky. Linda Bowlby, the former, judged for showmanship, and Bob McDowell for obedience. “I used to be an American Kennel Club obedience judge,” McDowell says. Now, he trains police dogs. “The whole idea is, you look for the handler and the dog to work together as a team,” he said of judging the local show. “The handler has to have control of the dog.” Bowlby said the show-
manship criteria comprise grooming and how well handlers present their dogs. But the judges aren’t harsh. “We encourage the kids. I like to make it fun so they want to come back,” McDowell said. The results of their judging were as follows:

The sounds of gunfire salutes, singing, and taps could easily be heard during the fair’s veteran day program Saturday. Veterans and families bowed their heads for an opening prayer, said the Pledge of Allegiance and listened to a speech by Jeff Kauffman, second vice commander of the Ohio American Legion Department. His oration was full of descriptions of veterans. A color guard consisting of members of the Catholic War Veterans, Sidney American Legion Post 217, AMVETS Post 1986 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4239 brought in the flag for the salute. County Veterans Service Office Executive Director Ed Ball made comments about funds for veterans services, which brought in more than $11 million to provide services. Kauffman encouraged people to simply tell a veteran “thank you.” “Those are two little words that mean a lot,” Kauffman said.

SOLLMANN in against the president’s comment. He contacted Sollmann, who was reluctant at first, but after seeing some other Romney ads, agreed to do it. “He handed me to the Romney people and after a few phone calls I said, “Yeah I’ll see if I want to do it.” So a film crew flew to Ohio last Thursday and began shooting the video. It took about three hours. The video can be found at www.youtube.com/watch ?v=CylDvgsrBxA Sollmann has been a busy man since the video went online. “It’s been a bit hectic to say the least,” he stated. He has received a large number of messages from all over the country. While most were supportive, Sollmann discovered he has quite a few critics. A number of liberal sites have criticized Soll-
mann because his electrical contracting business has done some work for schools and other public institutions. Sollmann said he still respects the president, but believes he is wrong on the subject of the economy. “I didn’t attack him in any way; I just said he was wrong,” Sollmann stated. “I had no agenda. That’s what they (the Romney campaign) liked about me.” While Sollmann does not want to add more controversy to the current conversation about the ad, he did address the thinking of his critics. Many say the government did support his his business because it received contracts for publicly-funded projects. “We do about 80 percent private and 20 percent public business,” Sollmann said. He noted that those government contracts did not come in until after his busi-
From Page 1 ness built a good reputation among private entities. Sollmann said he is not about to become a political mouthpiece, like Joe the Plumber became in the 2008 election. He has already turned down interviews with the New York Times and the L.A. Times, preferring to only do formal interviews with the Dayton Daily News and Sidney Daily News. “I just decided that’s not what I’m going to do,” he said. He has a business to maintain, and he is reaping the benefits of the hard work he and his employees have put in for more than 40 years. “You just build it one guy at a time,” he said, “After 40 years you see where we’re at.” Shelby County Republican Party Chairman Chris Gibbs was impressed by the ad and said he is proud of Shelby County’s history of small business cre-
ation. “The president has struck a nerve here with his assertion that small business wouldn’t be started without the help of government,” Gibbs said. He fundamentally disagreed with critics who said the campaign has taken the “you didn’t build that” comments out of context. “That’s just ridiculous,” he said, “There is a big difference between a government contract and a subsidy.” He believes this ad tells the truth. “And when you tell the truth in politics, you win,” Gibbs said. Sollmann said he hopes the ad brings the Romney campaign success. “I hope he wins the election in Ohio,” Sollmann said. The Daily News was unsuccessful in reaching either the Romney or Obama campaign offices in Columbus.

Covered wagons to plod through county A group of contemporary pioneers will be rolling into Shelby County next week. The Ohio United Wagon Train is bringing 10 covered wagons and over a dozen horseback riders to the area Monday. The statewide group has not visited the Shelby County area since the mid-1980’s. They will set up camp at the Don Black farm in Piqua. Members will haul their nostalgic goods to the location,
then saddle up for a week of day rides. They will begin on Monday with a visit to Fair Haven Shelby County Home and spend Tuesday in Houston. After a free day Wednesday they will begin again by going to the Johnston farm in Piqua. The group will lend its week of historical fun by crossing the Lockington Dam in the southern part of the county. “We wanted people to be aware that they will be on the roads and the public is welcome to come see the animals

SIDNEY HIGH School head football coach Adam Doenges takes throws from his players Tuesday on the second day of high school football practice. Teams all over Ohio began practice for real on Monday, and most will have their first preseason scrimmages next Tuesday.
High school football teams begin practice Scrimmages start Tuesday, regular season on Aug. 24 The high school football season is just around the corner, as evidenced by teams opening practice for real on Monday. The preseason schedule begins Tuesday, and the regular season on Aug. 24. There are no new head coaches among the four County schools that have football. Adam Doenges returns for his second season at Sidney, Dick Roll is back at Lehman, Bryan Rioch remains the only head football coach Anna has ever had, and Matt Burgbacher hopes to build on his amazing success in his fourth season at Fort Loramie. Lehman and Fort Loramie will see some changes this year. They are no longer in the Metro Buckeye Conference, having moved on to the Northwest Central Conference. And the NWCC starts their games a half-hour earlier. Fort Loramie’s four nonleague games will start at the usual 7:30, but the other six, all league games, will begin at 7. Lehman will have just one 7:30 start, in week two at Minster. The other eight games will all start at 7, including the season opener at Sidney Memorial Stadium against Anna. Thanks to Troy Christian canceling the varsity football season for this year, Lehman, and also Riverside, have just nine games scheduled. Both are looking to fill the open date.

Rookies making impact for Browns BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The plan is clear: Accumulate draft picks, use them wisely, then put those players in the starting lineup. The Cleveland Browns believe that finally, they are on track for success. Led by a pair of first-round picks, running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden, Cleveland could have four rookies start on offense this season. And on Monday, linebacker JamesMichael Johnson put in a claim on defense with two interceptions. “They throw it, I can catch it,” said Johnson, a fourthround choice from Nevada. “I was just doing my job. But, yeah, it felt good.” Coach Pat Shurmur was impressed. “He had an interception, a couple actually,” he said. “He
looked good on the goal line. He’s had a couple of good days, he really has.” Johnson could certainly fill a void when veteran linebacker Scott Fujita misses the first three games. Fujita is suspended for his part in the New Orleans bounty scandal. “They haven’t told me anything except to go out and play,” Johnson said. “They need me to go get water, I’ll do it.” Shurmur saw “plenty of mistakes” as the offense worked on short-yardage and goal-line situations as well as the two-minute drill. “We need to correct them, but that’s why we do them,” he said. Shurmur was happy nobody was injured in practicing situational football. “You always keep your fingers crossed because all the legs are piled up,” he said.
Reds edge Padres 7-6 CINCINNATI (AP) — Ryan Ludwick drove in four runs with a homer and a single Tuesday night, and Brandon Phillips hit a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning that got the Cincinnati Reds back to winning with a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres. The NL Central leaders blew a six-run lead before rallying for their 18th victory in
21 games. A loss to the Padres in the series opener snapped a 10-game winning streak on Monday. Phillips homered on the 110th and final pitch by Jason Marquis (4-6), who had won his last three starts. Sean Marshall (4-3) got the win with two perfect innings. Left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth.

Phelps swims into history SPORTS IN BRIEF LONDON (AP) — Michael Phelps lingered on the blocks, not wanting to make another shocking blunder. The 19th medal was his. All he had to do was avoid a DQ, then set off on what amounted to four victory laps. Down and back, then down and back again, the roars getting louder with each stroke. When Phelps touched the wall, he finally had gold at his final Olympics. And a record for the ages. Phelps swam into history with a lot of help from his friends, taking down the last major record that wasn’t his alone. He took the anchor leg for the United States in a gold medal-winning performance of the 4x200-meter freestyle relay Tuesday night, earning the 19th Olympic medal of his brilliant career, and the 15th gold. A more appropriate color. “I’ve put my mind to doing something that nobody had ever done before,” Phelps said. “This has been an amazing ride.” About an hour earlier, Phelps took one of his most frustrating defeats at the pool, blowing it at the finish and settling for silver in his signature event, the 200 butterfly. That tied the record for career medals held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, but it was hardly a triumphant moment. Phelps slung away his cap in disgust and
PSU’s Redd heads to USC STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Star tailback Silas Redd is bolting Penn State for Southern California. The 1,200-yard rusher opted Tuesday to leave a Nittany Lions program facing heavy NCAA sanctions handed down because of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Among the penalties was a four-year postseason ban. The NCAA gave Penn State players the option to transfer immediately and play for another school this year. Redd visited USC over the weekend and heard coach Lane Kiffin’s pitch to be a key cog for a Trojans team expected to be highly ranked and contend for the Pac-12 title. Redd is the second player to leave Penn State since the sanctions were announced July 23. The other was backup safety Tim Buckley, who joined North Carolina State on Monday.

UNITED STATES’ Michael Phelps, right, celebrates after winning gold in the men’s 4x200-meter freestyle relay swimming final at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London Tuesday. struggled to force a smile at the medal ceremony. But any disappointment from that race was gone by the time he dived in the water on the relay, having been staked to a huge lead by teammates Ryan Lochte, Conor Dwyer and Ricky Berens. Before the race, they all huddled together, fully aware of their role in history. “I thanked those guys for helping me get to this moment,” Phelps said. “I told those guys I wanted a big lead. I was like, ‘You better give me a big lead going into the last lap,’ and they gave it to
me. I just wanted to hold on. I thanked them for being able to allow me to have this moment.” Berens handed off a lead of nearly 4 seconds to Phelps, who was extra cautious with the exchange, knowing the only way he could ruin this one was to get disqualified. Lochte stood on the deck, waving his arms. Dwyer and Berens pumped their fists. And Phelps touched the wall for his first gold of the London Games with a cumulative time of 6 minutes, 59.70 seconds. No one else was close. France’s Yannick Agnel swam a faster final leg
than Phelps, but it wasn’t nearly good enough, his country taking silver in 7:02.77. China was far back in third at 7:06.30. Phelps might have backed into the record a bit by failing to win any of his first three events at these games, but there’s no denying his legacy as one of the greatest Olympians ever — if not THE greatest. “The legacy he has left behind for swimming is fantastic,” said South African Chad le Clos, the guy who beat him in the butterfly. “Even in Africa, everyone knows Michael Phelps.”
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame suspended quarterback Tommy Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese for the Sept. 1 season opener against Navy in Ireland on Tuesday, nearly two months after they were arrested following an offcampus party and charged with resisting arrest. Coach Brian Kelly said his players “understand that it's a privilege” to be at Notre Dame and Rees and Calabrese, both upperclassmen, failed to live up to their responsibilities. Rees was pepper-sprayed and arrested after he ran away from an off-campus party on May 3 and knocked the wind out of a police officer who caught up to him. Calabrese, a senior, was charged with a misdemeanor count of intimidation after police said he twice told officers, “My people will get you.”
Tribe, Red Sox trade BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox acquired righthanded knuckleballer Steven Wright from the Cleveland Indians for first baseman Lars Anderson on Tuesday. Wright was 9-6 with a 2.49 ERA at Double-A Akron. Boston, which had knuckleballer Tim Wakefield in its rotation for many years, assigned Wright to Double-A Portland. The 27-year-old Wright has never pitched in the majors. In six minor league seasons, he is 38-33 with a 3.95 ERA. He is holding opponents to a .207 batting average this year, best in the Eastern League. The 24-year-old Anderson hit .259 with nine homers and 52 RBIs at Triple-A Pawtucket. He also played left field. Anderson has spent parts of the last three seasons with the Red Sox, batting .167 in 30 games. He was 1 for 8 in six games this season.

Project under way to improve baseball field at Sidney High Passers-by may have noticed a lot of work going on at the Sidney High School baseball diamond recently. The facilty is undergoing a renovation of sorts to bring it in line with the rest of the facilities at the school, which are impressive, to say the least. Athletic director Jeff Courter said this week that the project will include moving the fence in to the edge of the
dugout. Most high school baseball fields have the dugouts even with the fence, so Sidney’s have been sticking out in foul territory for years. And moving the fence in will make for a better fan experience, Courter added. Also, there will be new permanent bleachers behind the backstop, a refacing of the scoreboard, and a new “Sidney Baseball” wind screen. In addition, the

LONDON (AP) — Two finals, two golds. And all anybody wants to know about Chinese teen swimming sensation Ye Shiwen is whether she's doping. After shattering the world record in the 400 individual medley on the opening day of the pool competition at the London Games, the 16-year-old broke her own Olympic record to take the 200 IM title Tuesday. Ye flashed smiles toward the crowd and sang her national anthem, then walked into a packed and hostile press conference where she faced one question after another over whether she is taking performance-enhancing drugs. Ye is smaller than most swimmers at her level but has never failed a drug test, and Olympic organizers spent much of the day defending her, saying the suspicions were “crazy” and motivated by jealousy.

CHICAGO (AP) — The Texas Rangers won the Ryan Dempster sweepstakes, acquiring the Chicago Cubs ace for two minor leaguers moments before Tuesday's trade deadline. The AL West leaders fortified their rotation for the stretch run, sending infielder Christian Villanueva and pitcher Kyle Hendricks to Chicago. Dempster, who had power to block deals, had refused to approve a trade to Atlanta last week. The Los Angeles Dempster Dodgers and New York Yankees also tried to land the 35-year-old righty. "It's a great opportunity over there," Dempster said. "It's not going to be easy. There are a lot of teams out there that are really good. I think they have as good a chance as anybody." Dempster was 5-5 with a 2.25 ERA in 16 games for the Cubs and can become a free agent after the season.

Bengals extend Lewis’ contract CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals coach Marvin Lewis agreed to a twoyear contract extension through the 2014 season on Tuesday, giving him more chances to pursue the elusive goal of winning a playoff game. Lewis already holds the club record for tenure as a head coach, entering his 10th season. Owner Mike Brown offered the extension even though the Bengals are 69-74-1 under Lewis
with only three winning records and an 0-3 mark in the playoffs. When he arrived in 2003, the Bengals were in the midst of one of the worst streaks of futility in league history — no winning record since 1990. They broke the streak by reaching the playoffs in 2005, only to lose to Pittsburgh in a first-round playoff game when quarterback Carson Palmer tore up his knee.

The strategy of vying for better seedings in the next round seemed to be repeated in the women’s doubles match between South Korea’s Ha Jungeun and Kim Min-jung, and Indonesia’s MeilJauhari and iana Greysia Polii. Both teams were also warned for deliberately losing points in a match the

starting Wednesday. “We would try hard in every match if they were elimination games,” she said. “Because they are group stage, that’s why we are conserving energy. “If we’re not playing the best it’s because it doesn’t matter — if we’re the first or the second (in the group) we’re already through. The most important thing is the elimination match tomorrow.” The South Koreans filed a protest to the referees. “It’s not like the Olympics spirit to play like this,” head coach Sung Han-kook said. “How could the No. 1 pair in the world play like this? They start playing mistakes.” Australia coach Lasse Bundgaard blamed the group format. “It’s not good when you create a tournament where the players are put in this situation,” he said. “If you can win a medal by losing, but not by winning, that’s not a good situation to be put in. “I totally understand why they are doing it.”

LONDON (AP) —The world doubles badminton champs apparently are good at losing, too. Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang of China were booed off the Olympic court Tuesday after appearing to intentionally lose against South Koreans Jung Kyun-eun and Kim Ha-na in a preliminary women’s match. The South Koreans also didn’t look as if they were trying to win at times. The reason? Both teams had already topped their groups and qualified for the last 16, but the result ensured top seeds Wang and Yu avoided playing their No. 2-seeded teammates until the final. Both teams dumped serves into the net and made simple errors at Wembley Arena. The longest rally was only four strokes. The umpire warned them midway through the first game, then tournament referee Torsten Berg spoke to all four players, but it had little effect. Eventually, the Chinese lost 21-14, 21-11.

Pork loin big hit at fair BY LEE JONES Within three hours of the pork loin cookout kickoff, the Shelby County Pork Producers sold out their entire supply. That is 320 pounds — enough to make about 1,000 sandwiches. Ted Bornhorst, a Pork Producers member and former president, was in charge of the grill Saturday and was very

pleased with the turnout. “The weather has a lot to do with it,” Bornhorst said, “When it’s 90 degrees, people don’t want to eat.” But the temperature was in the mid- to high70s, and people were hungry. He also believes the price is right, at just $3 per sandwich. “We provide the best deal on the fairgrounds,”
he said. After the pork sold out, he quickly filled the grill with sausages for replacement sandwiches. The money from this sale will go toward new fairground construction projects, like a bathroom and shower project for next year. “We like to donate for the kids,” he said, “We’re giving back to the youth as much as we can.”

ARLO & JANIS
BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Glory hallelujah! What a lovely day to recoup from yesterday’s Full Moon tension. Accept all invitations to party. Enjoy movies, sports, playful times with children and all fun occasions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Explore real-estate opportunities today. This also is a great day to entertain at home, so invite the gang over. Discussions with parents and authority figures in your family will be encouraging. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Positive thinking can lead to a positive life, and today is surely evidence of that. It’s a busy day but full of optimism and energy! Enjoy relations with siblings. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is an excellent day for business and commerce. Trust your moneymaking ideas. Don’t be afraid to think big. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel confident, exuberant and optimistic today. Relations with others, especially in group situations, will not only be successful, they will benefit you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Any work behind the scenes will pay off today. Ironically, whatever you do privately or on your own will favorably boost your public reputation. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Discuss your hopes and dreams for the future with others, because their feedback will help you. This is a good day for meetings of all kinds — classes, casual get-togethers and conferences. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Big ideas about how you might change your life direction could occur to you today. In part, this might be because people in authority are encouraging. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Travel anywhere will be exciting. You’re very enthusiastic about exploring new options, especially those related to higher education, publishing, medicine and the law. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep your pockets open, because gifts, goodies and favors from others can come your way today. This is an excellent day to discuss how to share something, especially inheritances or jointly held property. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with the general public, as well as with partners and close friends, will be wonderful and upbeat today. People are in a good mood and are hopeful about something. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because you feel vigorous, healthy and ready for anything, you easily will take advantage of opportunities that come your way at work today. Work-related travel is likely. Group meetings will be positive and successful. YOU BORN TODAY No matter how you appear outwardly, you always look confident. In fact, you put your unique, personal stamp on everything you do. Although adaptable, you also can be entrenched in your views. (And admit it, you enjoy being unconventional!) Essentially, you’re a closet idealist. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.

For home wart treatment, you’ll find many wart removers on the counters of your local drugstores. DuoPlant, Compound W and WartOff are but a few names. Follow bottle directions carefully. Duct tape — the duct tape found in hardware stores — has a mixed record as a wart remover. Apply tape to the warts and leave it in place for six days. You don’t need a huge amount of tape, just enough to cover the wart. On day six, remove the tape and have your son soak his hand in warm
water. Then, with an emery board or pumice stone — both drugstore items — lightly rub the warts to remove as much of them as you can. Reserve these devices for wart treatment only. On day seven, reapply the duct tape. Continue the ritual, if need be, for eight weeks. If it hasn’t worked by then, it’s not going to.

Aug. 1, 1912 Herb Kelly, a prominent St. Marys man who has had experience in the oil business, was here for a few days this week promoting an oil well. Several locations have been suggested for the placing of the well. One known to be under definite consideration is the Mathers farm on the River Road southwest of Sidney. ––––– Frank Speelman, the well known barber at the Favorite and second baseman for the Sidney Brownies, left last night for his home in Cleveland where he has accepted a position. ––––– The concert given by the Sidney band last evening was unusually well attended. The selection “The Battle of San Juan” with battle effects took very well outside of startling a few horses. Director Meyerholtz promises new features next week. ––––– Several months ago it was announced that J.L. Inskeep and Maurice Gastineau were at the head of a company which had purchased the property formerly used as the egg house of the Mary L. Poultry plant across the river, and it would be remodeled for the purpose of an up-to-date packing establishment. Remodeling has been underway and it is expected the new plant will open for business in the near future.
75 years Aug. 1, 1937 A Sidney man, John Salm, figured in the rescue of the one woman saved when five others drowned as the car in which they were riding went through a guard rail on State Route 32 and plunged into Indian Lake near Russells Point, early Sunday morning. Salm, who was in another car passing the scene, joined others in the rescue attempt as the vehicle carrying the six people went off the highway at the sharp curve known as “The Bend.” ––––– Joseph L. Halberstein of Sidney scored the second highest grade in the state among the 227 applicants passing the bar examination, according to an announcement made in Columbus today by Seba H. Miller, clerk of the Ohio Supreme Court. Others passing the examination included Erwin J. Garmhausen of New Bremen.
50 years Aug. 1, 1962 Clarence Barhorst was installed as grand knight of the Sidney Council of the Knights of Columbus during installation ceremonies held Wednesday evening in the K of C Hall. Installed to serve with Barhorst during the coming year
were, Ronald Pulfer, deputy grand knight; Tom Kerrigan, chancellor; Art Carter, warden; Kenneth Copella, treasurer; Raymond Barhorst, recorder; Carl Schroeder, advocate; Eugene Stockstill, inside guard; Victor Philpot and William Kingseed, outside guards, and Frank Tebbe, Orval Davis and John Gattes, trustees. ––––– Miss Rose Mary Koenig, a graduate of the Richard Weston School of Cosmetology, Dayton, is opening a new beauty shop in Botkins to be known as “The Beauty Noon,” its location to be on Lynn Street. Miss Koenig is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis R. Koenig of Botkins. She graduated from Botkins High School with the class of 1961. ––––– A “Biggest and Best Ever” label was stamped on the 102nd annual Shelby County fair as it closed its gates Friday night after being attended by approximately 100,000 persons. Whether the crowds exceeded those of the Centennial Exposition of 1960 was still a matter of speculation today
25 years Aug. 1, 1987 Despite cloudy skies and a few sprinkles of rain, the 127th edition of the Shelby County Fair got off to a running start Friday with a full slate of activities and large crowds. Although final figures were not in when fair officials were contacted Friday night, they indicated opening day attendance would probably equal or exceed last year’s totals. ––––– Two local students were among those receiving scholarships from Copeland Corp. for the coming school year. Vickie L. Kohler, Botkins High School graduate, and Patrick J. Yun, Troy High School graduate, will receive $5,000 each over a four-year-period in Copeland scholarships. Michael R. Potts, Lehman High School graduate, received the Rudolf G. Berg Scholarship of $1,000 which is a one-time grant for freshman year. ––––– These news items from past issues of the Sidney Daily News are compiled by the Shelby County Historical Society (4981653) as a public service to the community.
