GOP looks to distinguish Romney from Ryan budget BY KEN THOMAS Associated Press


MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Mitt Romney’s campaign sought to put some distance Sunday between the presidential candidate and his new running mate’s controversial budget proposals, even as Paul Ryan’s selection energized Republican voters and Romney himself. But President Barack Obama’s campaign made clear they planned to aggressively cast Ryan’s budget as outside the

COLUMBUS — Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has launched an online service that allows Ohio’s registered voters to update their voting address online. This new tool, at, will help voters in meeting their primary responsibility: To be registered at their current addresses 30 days prior to an election. Additionally, reducing manual data entry at Ohio’s boards of elections will save tax dollars and improve the accuracy and security of Ohio’s voter rolls. “We are making it easier for Ohio voters to do their part in making Election Day run smoothly,” Husted said. “This added convenience for voters is also a powerful tool against voter fraud as current and accurate voter rolls leave less See VOTERS/Page 3

mainstream — and argue that Romney now owns that plan, too. “Gov. Romney is at the top of the ticket. And Governor Romney’s vision for the country is something that Congressman Ryan supports,” Romney spokesman Kevin Madden said Sunday during a briefing for reporters. Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to the Republican campaign, said Romney would have signed Ryan’s budget if landed on his desk as president. But he emphasized that as president Romney would “be put-

ting forward his own budget.” The Romney campaign’s efforts to draw that distinction underscored the political risk in picking Ryan, the architect of an austere, long-term budget plan remaking Medicare and cutting trillions in federal spending. David Axelrod, Obama’s senior adviser, cast Ryan as a “right wing ideologue” who wants to convert Medicare into a voucher plan and put the popular health-care program for the elderly in “a death spiral.” See GOP/Page 7

Meeting Harpo and Harlo Natalie Berning, 13 (l-r), and her sister Kaylin Richard, 5, both of Anna, pet two dogs looking for homes held by Shelby County dog warden, Deputy Cami Frey. The two dogs, Harpo and Harlo, were brought out to VanDemark Farm for a Shelby County Animal Rescue Foundation (SCARF) fundraiser Sunday. VanDemark Farm donated 25 percent of money raised to SCARF. Harpo and Harlo can’t stand to be separated but there are plenty of other nice dogs looking for a home that only wants one dog, Frey said. Natalie and Kaylin are the daughters of Alisha Berning. Dennis Berning is Natalie’s father and Matt Richard is Kaylin’s father.

Liberty Group to host Mandel, Jordan The Shelby Liberty Group will hold a town hall meeting Aug. 23 featuring Josh Mandel, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in November’s general election. Also present will be U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, of Ohio’s 4th District, which includes Shelby County. The meeting will take place at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall, 2841 Wapakoneta Ave., starting at 8 p.m. Mandel is treasurer of the state of Ohio. His stated objectives are to advance the free enterprise system and advocate for limited government. While treasurer of Ohio, he earned the highest score possible from Standard and Poor’s for the government investment fund he manages.



Mandel, who is seeking the seat currently held by Democrat Sherrod Brown, is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, having served two tours of duty in Iraq. He served previously in the Ohio House of Representative from the 17th District. During his four years as a state representative, he championed issues aimed at restoring fiscal soundness to government. Mandel was also a leader in the area of en-


ergy policy, advocating for the responsible exploration of America's natural resources. He believes in protecting family values and expanding school choice. Mandel believes that by “sharing with Ohioans our strong record of success in the Ohio Treasurer’s office, we can help spread our message of changing Washington through fiscal conservatism, businessfriendly policies, and a willingness to take on political bosses on both sides of the aisle to do the right thing for Ohio and America.” Mandel received his bachelor’s degree from Ohio State University and a law degree from Case Western Reserve University. He and his wife reside in northeast Ohio. Lordan will introduce


Mandel. He is also a fiscal conservative who believes that “families and taxpayers, rather than government, know best how to make money decisions.” He is chairman of the Republican Study Committee’s Budget and Spending Task Force. He also serves on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committees. Mandel will share his goals as a U.S. senator. A questionand-answer period will follow. The Shelby Liberty Group is a nonpartisan organization with goals of educating and informing the public on policies and candidates. A future town hall will feature local candidates from both parties. The town hall meeting is free and open to the public.

VOTERS room for abuse.” The most common reason a voter must cast a provisional rather than a regular ballot on Election Day is because they have not updated their address prior to the voter registration deadline. Provisional voters’ ballots must be verified for eligibility in the days following an election before they can be included in the official tally. Husted noted that had this system been in place during the 2008 presidential election, an estimated 130,000 voters who cast a provisional ballot could have taken advantage of this convenience and voted a regular ballot.

‘Positive step’

She was a devout historian and enjoyed researching her She ancestry. also enjoyed traveling throughout the United States, listening to bluegrass music and crafting in her spare time.

Word of the Week fair — A fair (archaic: fayre) is a gathering of people to display or trade produce or other goods, to parade or display animals and often to enjoy associated carnival or funfair entertainment. It is normally of the essence of a fair that it is temporary; some last only an afternoon while others may last as long as ten weeks. Activities at fairs vary widely. Some trade fairs are important regular business events where either products are traded between businesspeople, as at the Frankfurt Book Fair, where publishers sell book rights in other markets to other publishers, or where products are showcased to largely consumer attendees, as for example in agricultural districts where they present opportunities to display and demonstrate the latest machinery on the market to farmers. Fairs are also known by many different names around the world, such as agricultural show, fête, county fair, exhibition or state fair, festival, market and show. Flea markets and auto shows are sometimes incorporated into a fair.

Fair Fun Facts Carnivals consist of games, rides, shows, feasting, and overall merriment, which developed from the traditional outdoor festivals of Europe in honor of seasonal changes or religious holidays that date back hundreds of years ago. Fairs are large theme based events held to promote and present agricultural, commercial, industrial, and artistic exhibits to fairgoers while also providing the fun and amusement of carnivals. The traveling carnival began in America in the late 1800’s as a result of improved transportation and technology. A famous American carnival is the Mardi Gras, which is held in late winter in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was introduced to America on March 3, 1699 by French explorer, Iberville.

All about the fair!

Page sponsored by Miami County Recycling

The fair is an ancient tradition, and many communities have long had dedicated fairgrounds; others hold them in a variety of public places, including streets and town squares, or even in large private gardens. Fairs are often held in conjunction with a significant event, such as the anniversary of a local historical event, a seasonal event such as harvest time, or with a holiday such as Christmas. In Roman times, fairs were holidays on which there was an intermission of labor and pleadings. In the Middle Ages many fairs developed as temporary markets, and were especially important for long-distance and international trade, as wholesale traders traveled, sometimes for many days, for pre-arranged fairs where they could be sure to meet those they needed to buy from or sell to. They were usually tied to a special Christian religious occasion (particularly the anniversary dedication of a church). Tradesmen would bring and sell their wares, even in the churchyards. Such fairs might then continue annually, usually on the feast day of the patron saint to whom the church was dedicated. This custom was kept up until the reign of Henry VI, by which time there were a great many fairs kept on these patronal festivals, The Horse Exhibit Hall at The Great for example at Westminster on St. Peter's day, at Pennsylvania, in the early 1900s.

any animals live in the ocean. The most common are fish. Fish live in the water their whole lives. They have fins to swim and gills to breathe under water. Fish come in all shapes and sizes. Some are flat, and some can blow themselves up like balloons.

Fish come in all colors, too. The variety of fish that live in the ocean make it one of the most interesting places on Earth. • Color the fish on this page. Remember that fish have stripes, circles, and all the colors of the rainbow. Use your imagination!

Many people like to catch fish for sport. Others like to keep fish as pets. • Look up “fish” in an encyclopedia to see the many types of fish that live in the ocean. If you could pick one for a pet, which one would it be? Draw your pet fish in the fish bowl below. Then cut and paste letters from the newspaper to spell your pet fish’s name.

Fish are very important to human beings. They provide food for us to eat. Plus, big fish eat little fish, and little fish eat plants. This is called a food chain, and it helps keep nature in balance. • The four parts of this sea-food chain are pictured below. Number the panels in the correct order from one to four.

Now, look through your newspaper’s grocery and restaurant ads and cut out pictures of the types of fish people eat. Make a seafood collage.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, August 13, 2012

BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — John Wise watched a tear roll down his wife’s face as he stood alongside her bed in the intensive care unit. She’d been unable to speak after suffering a stroke and seemed to be blinking to acknowledge him, Wise confided to a friend who had driven him to the hospital. The couple had been married 45 years and Wise told his friend that they had agreed long ago they didn’t want to live out their years bedridden and disabled. So a week after Barbara Wise’s stroke, investigators say, her husband fired a single round into her head. She died the next day, leading prosecutors to charge the 66year-old man with aggravated murder Wednesday in what police suspect was a mercy killing. The shooting leaves authorities in a dilemma some experts say will happen with greater frequency in coming years as the baby boom generation ages — what is the appropriate punishment when a relative kills a loved one to end their suffering? More often than not, a husband who kills an ailing wife never goes to trial and lands a plea deal with a sentence that carries no more than a few years

in prison, research has shown. In some instances, there are no charges. “It’s a tragedy all around that the law really isn’t designed to address,” said Mike Benza, who teaches law at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. A New York man in March was sentenced to six months in jail after suffocating his 98-year-old disabled mother and slitting his own wrists. He told authorities he had just been told he had cancer and believed he was going to die soon, and feared no one would care for his mom. A Washington state man accused of shooting his terminally ill wife this year told investigators she had begged him to kill her; he is free on bail while prosecutors weigh charges. Almost always, there are deeper issues involved with the accused, including depression, their own health problems and the stress of taking care of a dying spouse, said Donna Cohen, head of the Violence and Injury Prevention Program at the University of South Florida. Seeing a dying or disabled spouse suffering can be enough to push someone over the edge, said Cohen, who is writing a book called “Caregivers Who Kill.” “Men will hit a wall when they

can’t do anything else,” she said. “That’s usually a trigger.” She worries this will happen more often with longer life expectancies and a continuing shortage of mental health services for older people. In the early 2000s, testifying a Florida legislative committee, Cohen cited research showing that two in five homicide-suicides in the state involved people 55 and older. The number of cases grew among older people while staying the same with those under 55. Police say Wise took a taxi from his home in Massillon, calmly walked into his 65-yearold wife’s room on Aug. 4 at Akron General Medical Center without drawing any attention, and shot her. Juries are often sympathetic to those who kill a spouse out of what is portrayed to be love and compassion, but the message that sends is unclear, said Wesley J. Smith, a California lawyer who wrote a 2006 book “Forced Exit: Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide and the New Duty to Die.” “Where’s the stopping point?” he said. “There almost comes to become a cultural acceptance that certain people are better off dead than alive.”

Tea party evolves, achieves state policy victories BY BILL BARROW Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Tea party activists in Georgia helped kill a proposed sales tax increase that would have raised billions of dollars for transportation projects. In Pennsylvania, tea partyers pushed to have taxpayers send public school children to private schools. In Ohio, they drove a referendum to block state health insurance mandates. These and other battles are evidence of the latest phase of the conservative movement, influencing state and local policy, perhaps more effectively than on a national level. Tea party organizers are refocusing, sometimes without the party label, to build broader support for their initiatives. The strategy has produced victories that activists say prove

their staying power. “I call it Tea Party 2.0,” said Amy Kremer, a Delta flight attendant who leads Tea Party Express. The Californiabased group, co-founded by GOP strategist Sal Russo, claims it’s the largest tea party political action committee. The movement first showed its strength in Washington in 2009 as an umbrella for voters angry over President George W. Bush’s Wall Street rescue and President Barack Obama’s stimulus package and auto manufacturer bailout, as well as the health care debate. The tea party has helped elect members of the House, but they’ve contributed to the stalemate on Capitol Hill. No single Republican presidential candidate captured tea partyers’ wholehearted support, despite angst over Mitt


Romney and his moderate record while Massachusetts governor. Without a clear rival, Romney, author of the state health care overhaul that served as a model for Obama’s, emerged from a crowded field to challenge the Democratic incumbent in November. Romney gave the hard right at least a symbolic win by announcing Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, a tea party hero, as his running mate Saturday. “What we’ve been doing is maturing,” Kremer said. “We are not out having rallies with all these signs with thousands of people. The work is happening on the ground.” In Georgia, anti-tax activists from tea parties and other conservative groups helped persuade voters across much of the state, including metro Atlanta, to reject a pennyper-dollar sales tax increase for transportation spending. The idea

had support from the state’s Republican governor and Atlanta’s Democratic mayor. Some tea party leaders established the Transportation Leadership Coalition to lead opposition. Separately, Debbie Dooley of the national Tea Party Patriots formed an unlikely alliance with the Sierra Club and local NAACP leaders. “We don’t hesitate to reach out to Democrats or liberal groups when we agree on an issue, even if it’s for different reasons,” said Dooley, who is based in Georgia. The opposition hired consultants, purchased state voter rolls, used social media and reached into Atlanta’s Democratic strongholds, not the usual tea party territory, to ensure the referendum failed. The July 31 vote was as overwhelming across the Atlanta region as it was in most rural parts of Georgia. Dooley said her alliance plans to ask Georgia legislators to remove spending restrictions on existing taxes for Atlanta’s mass transit system. Separately, she has worked with left-leaning Common Cause to push for limits on what lobbyists spend on state lawmakers. They failed during the 2012 legislative session, but after Georgia voters overwhelmingly approved the idea in a nonbinding ballot question, the legislature’s most powerful Republican says he’s on board.

DAYTON (AP) — Democrats in Montgomery County planned Sunday to come up with a replacem e n t candidate an for Ohio lawmaker Luckie who withdrew from running for reelection. The county party’s central committee scheduled a meeting late Sunday afternoon to replace state Rep. Clayton Luckie on the November ballot. Luckie dropped out Friday, a day after the Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said Luckie was under investigation. The prosecutor has said little other than that the probe doesn’t involve bribery. Luckie remains in office. He had been seeking a fourth term. Whoever is chosen will run against Iraq war veteran and Republican Jeff Wellbaum of Kettering, in the 39th District. Former Dayton Mayor Rhyne McLin took her name out of consideration for the Democratic

slot, the Dayton Daily News reported ( ). The former state legislator said she is focused on running for Dayton city commission next year. Former state legislator Fred Strahorn was also mentioned as a possible candidate. The Ohio Demcratic Party adviser said he was interested in running for the seat. And Mark Owens, the county party chairman, said retired Army officer Vic Harris had also expressed interested. The House district includes much of Dayton. Luckie issued a statement Thursday underscoring that the investigation isn’t related to bribery, but to “errors on some reports that are currently being addressed.” He did not say what types of reports had errors. “I take these matters very seriously and have instructed my team to conduct a full review of the reports in question,” he said. “Out of respect for the process, I will not be addressing any questions until my team has completed their analysis.”

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Aug. 13, the 226th day of 2012. There are 140 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 13, 1942, Walt Disney’s animated feature “Bambi” had its U.S. premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York, five days after its world premiere in London. On this date: ■ In 1521, Spanish conqueror Hernando Cortez captured Tenochtitlan (tehnatch-teet-LAHN’), presentday Mexico City, from the Aztecs. ■ In 1624, King Louis XIII of France appointed Cardinal Richelieu (reeshuh-LYOO’) his first minister. ■ In 1704, the Battle of Blenheim was fought during the War of the Spanish Succession, resulting in a victory for English-led forces over French and Bavarian soldiers. ■ In 1792, French revolutionaries imprisoned the royal family. ■ In 1846, the American flag was raised for the first time in Los Angeles. ■ In 1910, Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, died in London at age 90. ■ In 1932, Adolf Hitler rejected the post of vice chancellor of Germany, saying he was prepared to hold out “for all or nothing.” ■ In 1934, the satirical comic strip “Li’l Abner,” created by Al Capp, made its debut. ■ In 1960, the first twoway telephone conversation by satellite took place with the help of Echo 1. The Central African Republic became totally independent of French rule. ■ In 1961, East Germany sealed off the border between Berlin’s eastern and western sectors and began building a wall that would stand for the next 28 years. ■ In 1981, in a ceremony at his California ranch, President Ronald Reagan signed a historic package of tax and budget reductions. ■ In 1989, searchers in Ethiopia found the wreckage of a plane which had disappeared almost a week earlier while carrying Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 other people — there were no survivors. ■ Ten years ago: President George W. Bush hosted a half-day economic forum at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, where he assured Americans that his administration had a steady hand on the economy. American Airlines it would eliminate 7,000 jobs and cut flights.

British pomp and pop bring Olympics to rocking end BY PAUL HAVEN Associated Press LONDON (AP) — With a little British pomp and a lot of British pop, London brought the curtain down on a glorious Olympic Games on Sunday in a spectacular, technicolor pageant of landmarks, lightshows and lots of fun. The closing ceremony offered a sensory blast including rock ‘n’ roll rickshaws, dustbin percussionists, an exploding yellow car and a marching band in red tunics and bearskin hats. The Spice Girls staged a show-stopping reunion, and Monty Python’s Eric Idle sauntered through “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” — accompanied by Roman centurions, Scottish bagpipers and a human cannonball. It all made for a psychedelic mashup that had 80,000 fans at Olympic Stadium stomping, cheering and singing along. Organizers estimated 300 million or more were watching around the world. What a way to end a games far more successful than many Londoners expected. Security woes were overcome, and traffic nightmares never materialized. The weather held up, more or less, and British athletes overachieved. It all came with a price tag of $14 billion — three times the original estimate. But no-

Syrian opposition Iran quake kills 250 leader calls for no-fly zone BEIRUT (AP) — The head of Syria’s main opposition group in exile called Sunday for international powers to impose a no-fly zone in border areas to protect civilians who are coming under increasingly intense attacks by regime warplanes and helicopters. The president of the Syrian National Council, Abdelbaset Sieda, told The Associated Press that such a move by the international community would show President Bashar Assad’s regime that his opponents around the world are serious. The Syrian opposition has been calling for a no-fly zone over Syria for months. But Sieda renewed the plea a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Washington and Turkey were discussing a range of steps including a no-fly zone over some parts of Syria as the regime increasingly uses its air force to attack rebels. “There must be special protection,” Sieda said by telephone. “The numbers of martyrs are increasing and destruction too. If the country keeps going this way, then we are heading to a catastrophe.” Asked who will impose the no-fly zone, Sieda said: “We leave it to the international community.” Russia and China have vetoed attempts to pass tough U.N. Security Council resolutions aimed at Assad’s regime. Last week, the U.N. and Arab League envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, announced his resignation, following a frustrating six-month effort that failed to achieve even a temporary cease-fire.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Residents of the zone in northwestern Iran hit by powerful twin earthquakes described moments of terror and panic with birds crowing loudly in warning seconds before the ground shook. As the death toll rose Sunday to more than 250 with entire villages leveled, rescuers called off searches for survivors and turned their attention to caring for the 16,000 people left homeless. At least 20 villages were totally destroyed in the quakes on Saturday that were followed by some 36 aftershocks, state television reported. Ahmad Reza Shajiei, a senior government official in charge of rescue operations, said more than 5,000 tents have been set up to shelter the thousands of displaced who spent the night outdoors. “The moment the earthquake hit, it was like a snake biting from underground. It was the worst experience of my life,” said resident Morteza Javid, 47, from Ahar. “The walls were shaking and moving from side to side. It took about a minute before I could

run out of the house,” he said. “Seconds before the earthquake, crows were making a lot of noise, but I didn’t understand why. It was only after the quake that I learned the crows were warning us.” Javid said he drove more than a dozen injured people to hospitals during the night. State television said at least 250 died. The semiofficial Mehr news agency quoted a local official who put the toll at 277. State TV said 44,000 food packages and thousands of blankets have been distributed in the stricken area. In Washington, the White House press secretary sent a message of sympathy for the victims. “Our thoughts are with the families of those who were lost, and we wish the wounded a speedy recovery,” it said.” We stand ready to offer assistance in this difficult time.” The U.S. and Iran are locked in a bitter fight over Tehran’s disputed nuclear program, which the West suspect is aimed at producing weapons. Iran denies the allegation.



1873 dime sells for a pretty penny

“It is a pick that is meant to thrill the most strident voices in the Republican Party, but it’s one that should trouble everybody else — the middle class, seniors, students,” Axelrod said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Ryan’s addition to the GOP ticket appeared to reinvigorate Romney, who cast the selection as the start of a new phase for a campaign seeking to break out of a summer slump. “This is Day Two for me,” said Romney during a campaign rally with his running mate in North Carolina. “This is Day Two on our comeback tour to get America strong again, to rebuild the promise of America.” Romney announced his vice presidential pick Saturday morning at the start of a fourday bus tour that would serve as an introduction to Ryan for many voters. A recent CNN/ORC international poll showed a majority of voters had no opinion of the congressman.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) A dime made in 1873 has cost someone a pretty penny: It sold for $1.6 million at auction. An anonymous bidder won the pristine coin, said Chris Napolitano, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, which auctioned it during an American Numismatic Association convention. With a 15 percent buyer’s fee tacked on, the final price for the coin was $1.84 million, he said. The rare coin was minted in Carson City, Nev., during a one-day run of dimes. “Generally speaking, in the coin auction business, you might get a couple of people fighting each other" as they bid, he said Friday. "On this one, we had four or five buyers over a million dollars. We had a fair amount of buyers pursuing it”

Daughter’s loss shows value of 4-H To the editor: The Shelby County Fair recently ended and it again was a successful year for many area 4-H youth, including our daughter. She has been in 4H for three years and I am not sure she knew the meaning of 4-H until this year. Two days before she was to move her market lambs into the fair, they both became sick and died. She had spent countless hours walking and working with them since the beginning of May. Going to the fair was very difficult for her, knowing she wouldn’t be able to show her lambs, when the amazing happened to her. Several youth from our 4-H club, Botkins Livestock, and other clubs asked her to show their goats, be backups for them when showing their lambs, and let her use their lamb so she could still participate in the showmanship portion of the lamb show. She learned that winning a banner, or selling her animal and making money, wasn’t important anymore; she learned that there are wonderful people in our community who care what happens to one another. The 4-H Creed reads: I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service and my health for better living for my club, my community, my country and my world. This year our daughter truly learned what the 4-H Creed means and what it stands for. We would like to express our appreciation to everyone who gave her a hug, told her they were sorry about her loss, and especially those who were willing to let her show and use their animals.

Support Kennedy, Cupp and O’Donnell To the editor: After reading the Sidney Daily News article about Sharon Kennedy and her campaign for the Ohio Supreme Court, I checked out her website. Sharon Kennedy’s website states: “I will honor the Constitution by upholding the law, not creating it or legislating from the bench.” She is the kind of candidate that we need on the Supreme Court of the state of Ohio! She is recommended by Ohio Right to Life, as are Robert Cupp and Terrence O’Donnell. They also share endorsements from the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association and the Ohio State Medical Association. Judicial candidates are very important. Now is the time to check out their judicial philosophies and records. Kennedy, Cupp and O’Donnell are the best candidates for the Ohio Supreme Court. Mary C.

fiscal new year will see its funding continue at the prior year’s level, then begin to be slowly reduced until its regular spending bill can be enacted. Americans will no longer be held hostage by the threat of a government shutdown, and this will save taxpayers money. As an example, when the government shut down for 21 days in the mid-1990s, lawmakers responded to the understandable public frustration by swallowing large spending increases for the next decade just to avoid any standoff that could risk another shutdown.

Default Setting a default option of freezing discretionary spending at the prior year’s level would actually keep spending below the multiyear spending caps that passed in 2011. And continuing to reduce spending until the regular process is followed adds the right kind of leverage to the process. Under my bill, if the underlying spending bills have still not been enacted after 120 days into the new fiscal year, spending levels will be reduced by 1 percentage point — and then reduced by another 1 percent every 90 days. While a simple freeze is better than an expensive last-minute deal, it is still no substitute for lawmakers actually doing the important work of completing the spending bills one at a time — and using good data to eliminate or improve programs that don’t work, and support

When Three Chimes

Timely It’s timely, too. With no spending bills having been completed, and the fiscal new year approaching, news broke this week that House and Senate leaders have come close to an agreement on a six-month extension of discretionary programs with a 0.4 percent increase. Our bill takes what they’ve done, makes it automatic, eliminates the increases, and eventually cuts spending. That’s a win for the taxpayer. No more government shutdowns. No more disruptions in services when Congress can’t complete its work. And less pressure for expensive, last-minute, 1,000page spending bills. Those are all good reasons to support our commonsense approach in the End Government Shutdowns Act.

those that do. This is the constitutional duty of Congress, the so-called power of the purse. Unfortunately, under Democrat leadership, the United States Senate seems to have abandoned that role by not even passing a budget for three years and not bringing a single one of the 12 spending bills to the Senate floor this year. My bill would be an incentive for Congress to start governing again, doing the work the Constitution envisioned. The commonsense, bipartisan basis for the bill shows in the support it has. Thus far, 21 senators — both Republican and Democrat — have agreed to co-sponsor the bill.

The Independent Foreclosure Review process may provide compensation in the form of a lump sum payment, a loan modification, a suspended foreclosure, or even a corrected credit report. While IFR is a good option for many homeowners, it’s not a perfect process and I’m working to fix some serious flaws in it. That’s why I sent a letter to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency requesting that homeowners have access to an appeal process that ensures Ohioans can receive the assistance they deserve. And though not everyone will receive compensation, going through the IFR process is free of charge and won’t prevent Ohioans from pursuing other options related to foreclosure assistance.

Wrongdoing If homeowners don’t take advantage of this opportunity and participate in this program, then the banks will avoid making payments for their wrongdoing. Our economy will never fully recover until we stabilize the housing market – and that means restoring trust for both for homeowners and investors. But it’s up to all of us to take action. By raising awareness of the services the Independent Foreclosure Review process provides, we can help Ohio homeowners receive the compensation they deserve.

Farm Science Review celebrates 50th year LONDON — As Farm Science Review celebrates its 50th year, organizers say that despite the many changes that have occurred in agriculture during that time, one thing has remained the same — Ohio’s premiere agricultural event is still dedicated to ensuring the best agricultural research, resources, information and access for farmers. This year’s Farm Science Review theme is “Forecasting the Future for 50 Years,” emphasizing what Farm Science is all about, said Farm Science Review manager Chuck Gamble. “It’s about forecasting the future, what technology could be coming down the road in agriculture,” he said. “It’s about bringing cuttingedge technology to farm-

ers. “The field of agriculture is so exciting right now, with the boon in technology that has taken place in the industry during the past 50 years. From genetics and seeds and the different chemistries that we have to protect plants, to the equipment we now have that uses satellite technology to make farming more precise and efficient, I can’t fathom what the next 10 to 50 years will bring in agricultural innovations.” Farm Science Review will take place Sept. 1820 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London. Sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, Ohio State University Extension, and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, the

event attracts upwards of 140,000 visitors from all over the country and Canada. Visitors come for three days to peruse 4,000 product lines from 600 commercial exhibitors, and capitalize on educational opportunities from Ohio State University and Purdue University specialists. This year, the review will follow daily themes aimed at highlighting the 50th anniversary year, Gamble said. The themes are: • Sept. 18 — World Record Day. Kip Cullers, Missouri farmer who holds the world record in soybean yield of 160.6 bushels per acre, will talk about production techniques used to accomplish incredible yields. • Sept. 19 — Farmer Food Drive Day. For

every two cans of food or more donated, participants will receive a pair of work gloves (as supplies last). The goal is to collect at least a half semi-load of food, if not a full semi-load, Gamble said. Organizers are working with the Ohio Association of Food Banks. • Sept. 20 — Generational Day. Participants who attend as a family group can get photos taken and placed in a Farm Science Review frame or calendar. Farm Science Review preshow tickets are $5 at the OSU Extension Shelby County office, 810 Fair Road, Sidney. Tickets will $8 at the gate. Children 5 and younger are admitted free. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sept. 18-19. and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 20.

by FSA reporters. An annual report of acreages is required for CRP participation, DCP/ACRE enrollment and the Marketing Assistance Loan (MAL) ninemonth CCC grain loan program. CRP acreage Due to extended drought conditions and a shortage of available forage/hay supplies, Shelby County is authorized to receive applications for the grazing and/or harvest of hay from certain Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres. Grass waterways and several CRP wetland practices are now included with the hay and grazing provisions. A producer may harvest hay (no more than 50 percent of a field or area) or graze (at least 25 percent of each area shall remain ungrazed) the acreage through Sept. 30. Filter strips, quail buffer/field border or riparian buffer practices are ineligible with this authority. A 10 percent CRP annual rental payment will be imposed and will be deducted from the October payment or a producer may elect to pay the reduction “up front”. Producers are advised to contact the FSA county office to apply for either the grazing or har-

vesting of hay from applicable CRP lands. Written permission must be approved by the FSA County Committee prior to the haying/grazing operation. Direct deposit Current policy mandates that all payments from FSA be directly deposited into a producer’s savings or checking bank account. It is important that any changes in accounts such as type of account, bank mergers, routing number or account numbers, be provided to the county office promptly to avoid possible payment delay. A check marked “void” may be submitted to the FSA office to initiate any change of a financial institution. HEL land initiative A continuous signup is authorized to establish long-term cover on highly erodible cropland (HEL) that has a weighted average erodibility index (EI) of 20 or greater. Interested producers may contact the Shelby County FSA Office for completed program details, authorized practices and continuous CRP enrollment procedures.

USDA: Corn estimates drop amid deepening drought at the grocery stores, there’s little risk of a failed harvest that would lead to shortages on the shelves. The U.S. Agriculture Department predicted the nation’s biggest harvest ever in the spring, when farmers planted 96.4 million acres of corn — the most since 1937. But it cut its estimate a month ago and again Friday, saying it now expects the nation to

produce 10.8 billion bushels, the least since 2006. If that estimate holds, the federal government says it will be enough to meet the world’s needs and ensure there are no shortages. But experts say food prices will almost certainly climb as corn is a widely used ingredient found in everything from cosmetics to cereal, colas and candy bars.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A deepening drought in the nation’s farm states has cut further into this fall’s harvest, with farmers now expected to pull from their fields the lowest corn yield in more than a decade. But American farmers are still expected to produce their eighthlargest harvest ever, and while there’s sure to be a rise in prices

Farmers encouraged to report crop losses, low yields to FSA COLUMBUS — With the continued hot, dry weather conditions throughout Ohio, the Farm Service Agency (FSA) encourages farmers to document and report crop losses or low crop yields to their local FSA office. Producers with crops covered by crop insurance and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) must report crop losses resulting from a weather-related disaster event within 15 days of the disaster or when the loss first becomes apparent. Prevented planting must be reported no later than 15 days after the final planting date. Crop losses are acres that were timely planted with the intent to harvest, but the crop failed because of a natural disaster. It is important that producers file accurate and timely loss reports to prevent the potential loss of FSA program benefits. Low yield acreage does need to be reported and producers are encouraged to keep good production records on acreage with a low crop yield to document crop losses. In addition, farmers are encouraged to report crop conditions to their county FSA offices so that the information may be used to support the potential request for a disaster declaration. Farmers are reminded that they may revise FSA crop reports free of charge. A crop report revision, however, must be verified by physical evidence of the crop in a field spot check. The USDA’s authority to operate the five disaster assistance programs authorized by the 2008 Farm Bill expired on Sept. 30, 2011; however, USDA reminds livestock producers to keep thorough records of losses, including additional expenses during this hot dry weather, should a program become available. Farmers who have additional questions about failed crop acreage or crop losses covered by the Non-Insured Assistance Program (NAP) should contact their local FSA office.

State unveils new program to preserve farmland REYNOLDSBURG – Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David T. Daniels has announced a new way to preserve Ohio farmland. The Agricultural Easement Donation Partnership Program will reimburse local (counties, partners townships, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, or land trusts) for real estate closing and administrative costs to assist landowners with donations under the state’s farmland preservation program. The department has set aside $50,000 to cover up to $3,000 in costs for the donation of farms up to 200 acres. The incentive would increase by $5 per acre for easements more than 200 acres in size. Funds will be equally available in all areas of the state. “Ohio has gone from zero preserved farmland acres to more than 54,000 preserved acres in just over 10 years. This would never have been possible without the help of our local partners,” said Daniels. “Today, through this program, we are offering a way to help our partners preserve even more productive farmland at the local level. We hope

to preserve many more acres of donated agricultural easements through these incentives.” The new program will help provide local partners with resources to respond to landowners who want to permanently protect their land for agricultural production. Tax benefits for the value of the easement donation may be available. Bob and Lois Stoll, of Logan County, donated an agricultural easement on their 345-acre farm. “Our land is under our care for a short period and it is our responsibility to leave it to the next generation better than when received,” said Bob Stoll. “Preserving land for agriculture, woodland production, wildlife or natural beauty is a responsibility of our society. The family farm is a cornerstone of our existence and should be preserved and never lost for future generations.” The department currently holds 53 donated agricultural easements on 6,390 acres.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, August 13, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today your passionate feelings about something at home, perhaps a redecorating decision, or something that has to do with real estate might put you at odds with the family. And you don’t want to back down! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel fortunate because you can appreciate your surroundings and those who care for you. However, feelings of jealousy could mar this idyllic moment. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) If shopping today, you might be obsessed. You simply must have something! Keep your receipts, because this feeling might be gone in a few days. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Relations with partners and close friends are intense today. A new relationship could begin that is based on a fascination with someone. (Caution is advised.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If you feel uncomfortable or annoyed today, you might give someone a piece of your mind. That’s because deep, hidden, childish feelings can easily bubble to the surface. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A platonic relationship could turn romantic today. You might be fascinated by someone, and yet the same fascination could cause problems with other friends. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Some of you might develop a hot and heavy crush on a boss or authority figure today. It’s almost as if you’ve lost your judgment. (That about says it all.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Avoid controversial subjects like politics and religion today, because everyone feels super-passionate about issues. Naturally, this includes you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is an intensely passionate day for romance. But sometimes too much of a good thing isn’t a good thing. Sometimes it confuses and creates jealousy or resentment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A new relationship might begin today, and you are completely captivated by this person. You might be attracted to someone you know is good for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Work-related romance can begin today. Be cautious here, because this is an intense but passing attraction. Who wants to end up with egg on his or her face? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can really kid yourself today by falling in love with somebody completely inappropriate. Initially, it all seems to be the stuff of movies — irresistible and all that. Don’t do anything you’ll regret later. YOU BORN TODAY You value your personal integrity, which is why you like to reveal society in its most honest likeness as well. You are observant and not afraid to shock, but you buffer the raw truth with humor so as to make it palatable. Personally, you are emotionally open. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Christopher Gorham, actor; John Galsworthy, author/Nobel laureate; Halle Berry, actress. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Those meteorological signs are signs that a storm is about to strike. I don’t know why some arthritic joints respond to these changes with an increase in pain. You’re not the only one with arthritis who says they do. I’d like to find out why this happens. I think your observations are legit. How about you tell me why this happens.

Aug. 13, 1937 The Anna schools will have the use of six buildings from the CCC camp following arrangements completed late yesterday by the Anna Board of Education and the war department of the Federal Government at Fort Hayes in Columbus.

Cueto too much for Cubs CHICAGO (AP) — Johnny Cueto pitched three-hit ball for eight innings, Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick homered and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 3-0 Sunday. Cueto (15-6) moved into a tie with New York’s R.A. Dickey for the NL lead in victories. He retired the Cubs in order in four of the first five innings. Back in the lineup after sitting for two games because of a recent slump, Bruce hit a two-run shot into the rightfield bleachers in the fifth off Brooks Raley (0-2). Ludwick connected with a drive to left in the sixth. Aroldis Chapman earned the save for the third game in a row, his 28th of the season. Chapman has converted 20 straight saves and hasn’t allowed a run in 21 2-3 innings since blowing a save on June 24. The Reds have won three straight after snapping a season-worst five-game losing streak on Friday. Cincinnati’s 22-8 record since the All-Star break is best in the majors. In his second big league start in place of injured righthander Matt Garza, Raley retired the first 13 Reds. He allowed five hits and three runs over six innings after giving up eight hits and seven runs in his first outing at San Diego. Chicago has lost 10 of 11, with seven of those losses coming by two or fewer runs. The Cubs have been shut out four times since July 31. Cueto, a leading NL Cy Young candidate, has allowed three runs or fewer in 20 of 24 starts and lowered his ERA to 2.45. The Cubs put runners on the corners with one out in the sixth, the only time they had a runner reach third base. Cueto escaped the threat by getting Anthony Rizzo on an inning-ending double play.

Bruce followed with his team-high 22nd homer of the season. Frazier, who singled twice and scored, went 9 for 15 with six RBIs in the four-game series. Bruce entered the game 0 for his last 12 with seven strikeouts. He sat out games

on Friday and Saturday after manager Dusty Baker said his funk was “like being in quicksand.” Ludwick drove in his 20th run in his last 15 games, including six in the four-game set in Chicago. Since teammate Joey Votto was injured on July 15, Ludwick is hitting .341 with eight homers and 27 RBIs in 25 games. NOTES: Cincinnati CF

Drew Stubbs struck out three times for the second straight day. Stubbs has whiffed three or more times 11 times this season. ... Cincinnati improved to 19-8 since 2010 NL MVP Votto injured his knee, increasing its lead in the NL Central from one game to 4¬Ω over the Pirates. .

McIlroy cruises in PGA KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Right down to his red shirt, Rory McIlroy looked every bit the part of golf ’s next star in another command performance at the PGA Championship. McIlroy validated his record-setting U.S. Open win last year by blowing away the field Sunday at Kiawah Island. One last birdie from 25 feet on the 18th hole gave him a 6-under 66 for an eight-shot victory, breaking the PGA Championship record for margin of victory that Jack Nicklaus set in 1980. The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland returned to No. 1 in the world, and he became the youngest player since Seve Ballesteros to win two majors. Tiger Woods was about four months older than McIlroy when he won his second major. Just like the U.S. Open, this one was never seriously

RORY MCILROY, of Northern Ireland, watches his drive from the second tee during the final round of the PGA Championship golf tournament on the Ocean Course of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, S.C., Sunday. in doubt. McIlroy seized control with back-to-back birdies Sunday morning to complete the stormdelayed third round with a 67 and build a three-shot lead. No one got closer than two shots the rest of the way, and McIlroy closed out a remarkable week by playing bogey-free over the final 23 holes of a demanding Ocean Course.

David Lynn, a 38-year-old from England who was playing in America for the first time, won the B-flight. He closed with a 68 and was the runner-up. Woods, who shared the 36hole lead for the second time this year in a major, was never a serious factor. He tossed away his chances Saturday before the storm blew in and

never could get closer than four shots. He closed with a 72. If there was a signature shot for McIlroy at Kiawah Island, it might have been on Saturday when his tee shot lodged into a tree on the third hole. He only found it with help from the TV crew, took his penalty shot and fired a wedge into 6 feet to save par.

Schlater, Borders tops in Senior Open The Shelby County Senior Open took place Saturday at Shelby Oaks, with champions being crowned in two flights. In the 50-64 age group, Jeff Schlater took first place with a pair of 37s for a 74, just one stroke better than Randy Schafer, who had rounds of 39-36.

Frank Cardo was third with a 43-37, 79. The top gross score of the day was turned in by 65-andabove flight winner Paul Borders, who shot rounds of 35 and 36 for a 71. That was just one stroke better than Larry Metz, who had rounds of 38 and 34, and two strokes better than Gary

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — Marcos Ambrose passed Brad Keselowski on the final lap, then held him off in a fender-banging duel to win the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International for the second straight time. Kyle Busch, desperate for a win to move back into contention for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, was in control of the race but was leaking oil on the track. He skidded sideways coming out of the first turn of the final lap. Keselowski’s No. 2 Dodge caromed off the side of the No. 18 Toyota and Ambrose followed Keselowski through. “Busch slipped up big in turn one,” said Keselowski, who suffered damage to the front of his car. “There was nothing he could do. We all checked up and Marcos was right on my bumper. We all just about spun out. We got to the inner loop, and again nothing but oil.” Slipping and sliding around the 11-turn,

MARCOS AMBROSE stands on his car in victory lane as he celebrates his win at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Watkins Glen International Sunday in Watkins Glen, N.Y. 2.45-mile layout, Ambrose and Keselowski battled side by side nearly all the way around. Both went into the grass in the inner loop at the top of the high-speed esses but kept charging.

Ambrose slipped again in turn 10, but Keselowski couldn’t drive past. Neither gave ground, but Ambrose forged ahead in his Richard Petty Motorsports Ford on the final turn, another hard righthander, and turned away Keselowski’s final charge on the outside. “I must have hit the oil one more time and he didn’t,” Keselowski said. “I thought I had him, but I hit more oil than Marcos did.” Entering the race, Ambrose had one win and had never finished lower than third in four starts at The Glen for an average finish of 2.3 and an average green flag speed of nearly 120 mph. Both were tops in the series. Jimmie Johnson was third to gain the points lead by one over Greg Biffle. Sonoma winner Clint Bowyer and Sam Hornish Jr. were next, giving Dodge two in the top five. Dale Earnhardt Jr. spun late and finished 28th to fall from first to fourth in points, 17 behind Johnson.

Biffle was sixth, and Busch, Matt Kenseth, Regan Smith and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top 10. Ryan Newman finished 11th to move back ahead of Jeff Gordon into the second wild card slot. Kasey Kahne, who has two wins, holds the other. Gordon was also a victim of the oil, spinning late and dropping to 21st after having driven past Newman. The top 10 drivers in the standings qualify for the 10-race Chase, and two wild cards are awarded to the drivers with the most wins outside the top 10. Only those in the top 20 are eligible for wild cards. Last year, Ambrose beat Busch and Keselowski on a paint-trading two-lap dash to the checkered flag. Ambrose passed Keselowski for the lead on the final lap and secured his first Cup victory when a violent crash involving David Reutimann and David Ragan precipitated a caution that prevented Keselowski from making one final challenge.

Britain’s golden night Three British athletes won gold medals in Olympic Stadium in 44 minutes on Saturday, Aug. 4, to produce the signature night of the London Games: Jessica Ennis won the heptathlon, Greg Rutherford won the long jump, and Mo Farah won the 10,000 meters. (The Somaliborn Farah also won the 5,000 meters on the final Saturday.) Counting two golds from the rowers and another from women’s track cycling, Britain’s total for the day was six. 5.

South Korea and one from Indonesia were disqualified from the Olympics after they intentionally lost their matches in order to secure a more favorable draw in the quarterfinals. Olympic officials wanted team coaches, trainers or officials of the four doubles pairs to be punished if they encouraged or ordered the eight players to lose intentionally. 6. The “Blade Runner” made them roar Oscar Pistorius described his journey from South Africa to the London Olympics as “amazing,” and it was. The double-amputee known as the “Blade Runner” because he runs on carbon-fiber blades had the 80,000strong crowd roaring as

LONDON (AP) ‚Äî The top 10 memorable moments from the London Olympics: 1. Crowning the greatest Olympic athlete of all time Michael Phelps ended his remarkable swimming career by winning four gold and two silver medals in London. He is now the most decorated Olympian ever, with a career total of 22 medals, 18 of them gold. In his final swim, he helped the U.S. reclaim the lead in the 4x100meter relay, and afterward he got a special trophy from swimming officials that said: “To Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympic athlete of all time.” 2. Bolt adds to the legend The speed. The medals. The poses. It could only be Usain Bolt, who electrified the London Games by becoming the first man to win the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay golds in back-to-back Olympics. Even IOC Jacques President Rogge, who initially balked at giving him “living legend” status, conceded that the sixtime gold medalist “is the best sprinter of all time.” 3. Gabby leads the fierce five Gabby Douglas rocked the O2 Arena with her electric floor routine, her vaults, her leaps high above the balance beam. The 16-yearold won two gold medals, including the all-around, and the rest of the Fierce Five — Jordyn McKayla Wieber, Maroney, Kyla Ross and Aly Raisman — gave the United States its first Olympic team title in women’s gymnastics since 1996.

medal. 8. Running on a broken leg American Manteo Mitchell heard a pop in his left leg with 200 meters to go in his segment of the 4x400 relay preliminaries, and the sprinter knew it was not good. If he stopped, he would lose the race, so he finished the lap, then limped to the side to watch his teammates complete the relay. The United States eventually made it into the finals and won the silver behind the Bahamas. 9. Historic Olympics for women It lasted only 82 seconds, but it will be long remembered: Young judo fighter Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani became the first Saudi woman to compete at an Olympics. Wearing a modified hijab, Shahrkhani drew roars from the crowd as she stepped on the mat against Puerto Rico’s Melissa Mojica, who quickly defeated her. Saudi resident Alaa AlMizyen said afterward: “Wojdan remains a winner to me and millions of men AND women around the world.” Qatar and Brunei also sent female Olympians for the first time. 10. Her Majesty is a pretty nice actress The Olympics kicked off with a royal command performance. At the opening ceremony, a short film on the stadium’s big screen showed actor Daniel Craig as James Bond driving to Buckingham Palace and meeting Queen Elizabeth II, who played herself. “Good evening, Mr. Bond,” she said. Next they were shown flying in a helicopter over Olympic Stadium, where stunt doubles parachuted in.

WALLACE: I’m 12 and a good athlete and a fairly good student. I am far from a sissy, but sometimes I feel like one because when I see or hear something that is really sad, tears come to my eyes. I guess you would call it crying, but when a young person cries, he or she makes a crying sound. I don’t. All that happens is that tears fill up my eyes. I’ve tried not to let this happen but it does. Every time I think about all those people who were killed in a Colorado movie theater, I cry. Is there anything that I can do to stop this? Sometimes crying makes me feel embarrassed. — Jason, Mobile, Ala.

JASON: Psychiatrists all agree that crying is a very natural response to being hurt or feeling sorrow. Most often it provides a muchneeded release for frustrations. This is true for both males and females. But, of course, most boys are taught not to cry in our society. Whoever is teaching that theory needs to update his research.

Romney to make 3 Appalachian Ohio stops BEALLSVILLE (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will focus on coal as he begins a threestop Ohio bus tour on Tuesday. His campaign said Sunday he will be at American Energy Corp. in

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You will have to practice patience when dealing with partners and close friends today, because someone is doing a slow boil, and it could be you. It looks like you just have to suck it up. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Things at work are tough today. This could refer to a relationship with a co-worker, or it could be the job itself. Fortunately, tomorrow is a much better day! (Have courage.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Children might be an increased burden or responsibility today. Just accept this; it goes with the territory. And remember — you were a kid once, too. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family relationships are tough today.You might have a clash of opinions, especially with an older relative, but you feel you can’t speak out. (The worst!) Tomorrow is a better day. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Remember that old saying, “If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all”? You might want to keep that in mind today. Tomorrow the clouds blow away. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might feel financially crunched today.When the going gets tough, the tough go for coffee. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might feel frustrated today, because no

matter what you do, you encounter obstacles. Be comforted that many people feel this way today. You’re not alone. And tomorrow is a much better day! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might be quietly angry or upset about a situation that is behind the scenes. You feel like your hands are tied and you cannot speak. (Yikes.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It’s not easy getting along with others in a group situation today. If you push, someone just pushes back. Therefore, wait until tomorrow to achieve what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) It’s not easy dealing with authority figures today.You feel that “talk to the hand” is all you get. (It’s true.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Travel or anything having to do with publishing, the media, higher education, medicine or the law will feel like a grind today. Things are just difficult. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a poor day to divide something or ask for your fair share. People don’t feel generous or cooperative. In fact, they feel quite the opposite. YOU BORN TODAY You are decisive and have a take-charge quality, which generally puts you in a position of leadership. In addition, you have a kind of nobility that lends authority to whatever you say. However, because you are enormously likable, no one minds when you take the helm. This year you are about to begin an exciting new cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Julia Child, chef/author/TV personality; Oscar Peterson, jazz pianist.

Beallsville at 12:30 p.m., then stop by Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl in Zanesville later that afternoon. He concludes his swing through eastern and southern Ohio’s Appalachian region with an evening rally in Chillicothe.
