BY RACHEL LLOYD A margin of fewer than three votes would have meant an automatic recount for the Jackson Center School levy on the Aug. 7 ballot. After certification by the Shelby County Board of Elections Monday, the final result just missed the mark — it was three exactly. Official results were 224 for the 0.5-percent income tax levy and 227 against. No recount. The school board won’t be requesting — and paying for — a recount either, according to Jackson Center Superintendent Bill Reichert, but voters will be seeing the issue on the ballot again. “At some point and time, it will have to be,” Reichert said. “There’s no doubt it’s going to have to be (put on the ballot again.)” SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg The filing deadline has al- For photo reprints, visit ready passed for the Novem- JACKSON CENTER School Superintendent Bill Reichert (left) and Tony Meyer, of Jackson ber election, so the soonest Center, look over the final results of the Jackson Center School levy Monday morning at the See VOTES/Page 4A Shelby County Board of Elections.

ZBA approves permit During its August meeting Monday afternoon, Sidney’s Zoning Board of Appeals approved a conditional use permit for outdoor storage requested by Pollyfill LLC for its facilities at 960 N. Vandemark Road. Community Services Director Barbara Dulworth told board members the storage area is to be located in the side yard of the property, where the zoning code requires outdoor storage to be in the rear yard only. She said the storage area will cover approximately 1,800 and will be used for storage of wooden pallets. The lot has frontage on both Vandemark Road and Interstate 75 so there is no rear yard on the lot. As the city’s fire department requires that an adjacent open shelter used by employees for smoking be moved from the designated location, a condition of the board’s approval Monday is the existing open shelter and the outdoor storage facility be separate by at least 50 feet. The storage area must also be marked on the ground or a fence or barrier surrounding it must be installed.

voters could see the issue return would be the February special election. The next regular ballot is the May primary. “We will not be on the ballot during the general election in November,” Reichert said. “A 2010 law change moved the initial filing deadline from 75 to 90 days prior to an election. This made it necessary to file for the November election prior to the August 7 vote. Because of our inexperience with this law change, this did not occur. The school board and administration are planning our options for next spring.” Reichert said the next levy campaign would have to be put forth “with a little bit more sense of urgency.” “Obviously we were disappointed in the results of the recent school levy, but we are looking forward to strengthening the lines of communication with our voters concerning our current financial situation,” Reichert said. “We need to do a better job of explaining what we have been doing to be good stewards of the taxpayer dollar and energizing support for our schools..” He said wages are at a “total

“Fairlawn is running a bus right to the Sidney homes to pick up the students,” said Scheu. “I’m not sure how to combat that.” One way to keep students in the district was presented to the board via a presentation by VLN Partners, which works in partnership with school districts to provide “cyberschool” options to the students in the district. Bill Driver, of VLP Partners, told the board the Pittsburgh company was launched in 2008 following a pilot program in 2007. The VLN virtual academy designed to draw back in students who have left the school district. “We provide a turnkey solution,” cyberschool said Driver. “We provide all the hardware, live teacher support, instructional content and maintain the district needs.” The company, he said, also puts each district’s

curriculum on line, so no matter where the student is, the same curriculum is being taught. A blended learning program is provided by the company, which blends classroom and electronic learning together for the benefit of the students. The company also offers professional development and consulting services for the district. “We are targeting the kids who leave the school districts to attend the ecommunity schools,” said Driver. Scheu said through community schools, open enrollment and homeschooling, the district has experienced a loss of $4 million in state funding, which follows the student wherever he/she attends school. The board agreed to study the proposal and discuss it further at its Sept. 4 work session, which will be held at 6 p.m. at the BOE office.

The Sidney Planning Commission Monday night recommended Sidney City Council approve a requested Plum Ridge Phase 8 Planned Development request to alter building plans at 1199 Marvin Gene Court. The proposed revision is for an increased lot footprint to construct a 15 by 21.4 foot rear porch at the residence. The Planned Unit Development is located on Summer Field Trail, south and west of Bridlewood Drive. The revision was requested by Mervin Miller, on behalf of Darla Marx. Community Services Director Barbara Dulworth told commissioners Monday night city staff believes the proposed revision meets the zoned code’s definition of a minor change, not involving any public improvements.

Obama shifts to Ryan education plan COLUMBUS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama charged rival Mitt Romney with being oblivious to the burdens of paying for college on Tuesday, telling young voters in battleground Ohio that his opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education policies amounted to having students borrow from their parents or â&#x20AC;&#x153;shop aroundâ&#x20AC;? for the best deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his plan. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his answer to young people who are trying to figure out how to go to college and make sure that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a mountain of debt,â&#x20AC;? Obama said at Capital University in Columbus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not everybody has parents who have the money to lend. That may be news to some folks.â&#x20AC;? Turning to young voters, a key part of his 2008 coalition, the president sought to draw a bright line with Romney on education policy in his latest attempt to meld Romney with the House Republican budget blueprint offered Rep. Paul Ryan, Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running mate. Obama and Romney remain locked in a tight presidential campaign a week before the former Massachusetts governor formally claims his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination at the GOP convention in Tampa, Fla. Both campaigns have broadened their

message to voters in recent weeks beyond the economy, which remains the most pivotal issue for voters less than three months before the election. Romney sought to distance himself from Missouri GOP Senate nominee Todd Akin, who apologized after saying in an interview that womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bodies are sometimes able to prevent pregnancies after what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;a legitimate rape.â&#x20AC;? Romney said in a statement that fellow Missouri Republicans had urged Akin to quit and â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he should accept their counsel and exit the Senate race.â&#x20AC;? Romney was raising money to bolster his campaign in Texas, where he told donors that his campaign was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little wiser in our spending of dollarsâ&#x20AC;? than Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign, pointing to new finance documents released by Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign on Monday that showed it spent more money in July than it brought in. Romney and Republicans have outraised Obama and Democrats for the past three months, a sign of broad GOP interest in defeating the incumbent president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not managing their campaign for them, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to spend our money wiser,â&#x20AC;? Romney said in Houston, where he was ex-

pected to pull in more than $6 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to spend it to win.â&#x20AC;? In a nod to oil-rich Texas, Romney told donors he planned to announce a â&#x20AC;&#x153;comprehensive energy planâ&#x20AC;? during a stop in New Mexico later this week but offered few details beyond a focus in part on fossil-based fuels. Romney said his aim was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;fully take advantage of our energy resources.â&#x20AC;? Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign countered the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education critique, saying college costs had skyrocketed under Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watch and his economic policies had made it difficult for recent college graduates to find work. Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies were â&#x20AC;&#x153;just more of the same from a president who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fixed the economy or kept his promises to the young people who supported him four years ago.â&#x20AC;? Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line of criticism dovetailed with his campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unrelenting effort to cast Romney as out of touch, playing off his wealth and his background in private equity. Ryan, meanwhile, sought to reassure voters about his and Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance on Medicare and sustained the GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to cast Obama as a divisive figure.

Man gets life for killing, dismembering girlfriend

AP Photo/Columbus Dispatch, Eric Albrecht

DON STUART works at getting a machine up and going on the gaming floor at Hollywood Casino on the west of Columbus Monday. Managers say about 600 workers are laying tile, installing ceiling panels and setting up slot machines to help finish the new Hollywood Casino Columbus in time for the planned opening of the $400 million project on Oct. 8.

Columbus casino offers preview pillars of lights and televisions throughout the space, Patel said. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still plenty to be done before the opening. Most of the 3,000 slot machines are on site but not necessarily in their final positions. Decorative light fixtures and Art Deco architectural accents hang over boldcolored carpets awaiting tables for blackjack and other games. A bevy of surveillance cameras and televisions are installed in what is ex-

pected to be the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest poker room, which has none of its 30 tables yet. And the space set aside for higherstakes slots and table games with minimum bets of $100 still has bits of exposed drywall to be covered. Large kitchen equipment is in place for the four restaurants, which include a large buffet and a steakhouse that will be decorated with a rotating collection of Hollywood memorabilia.

that Sacco fought Puccio off at first but Puccio wrapped a second bag around her face. The prosecutor also said Puccio enlisted the help of four friends to help in covering up the crime by dismembering the body and helping him dispose of limbs in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. The two men and two women also have pleaded guilty to charges in the case and were sentenced on various counts. Puccio told the judge before his sentencing that he loved Sacco. The Dayton Daily News reported that when the judge asked how he could â&#x20AC;&#x153;kill and butcherâ&#x20AC;? someone he loved, he replied: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still trying to figure out.â&#x20AC;? Saccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Susan Taynor, was in the courtroom on Monday, holding her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ashes in a red velvet bag in her lap. Taynor said after the


sentencing that she believes Puccio is â&#x20AC;&#x153;an expert in knowing how to manipulate,â&#x20AC;? the Urbana Daily Citizen reported. During the investigation, Selvaggio said Puccio gave at least five versions of what happened to Sacco before he finally told authorities the truth. Selvaggio said that Puccio initially denied the killing, saying Sacco had kicked him out of the house. Other versions included the claim that he killed her in self-defense after she assaulted him and that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to dismember her. In media interviews, Puccio said he met Sacco through Facebook while he was living in Texas, they moved in together in Urbana and they argued often. He also said Sacco begged him to kill her after he confronted her about text messages sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sent saying she wanted him dead.

COLUMBUS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; About 600 workers are laying tile, installing ceiling panels and setting up slot machines to help finish the new Hollywood Casino Columbus, and managers said Monday theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re confident the $400 million project will open as scheduled on Oct. 8 despite the amount of work yet to be done.

General Manager Ameet Patel said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure the site will be ready by Oct. 3, when its games, kitchen equipment and other features will be tested by an estimated 10,000 people on a demonstration day, with proceeds going to local charities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you come in through the doors, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; effect in many forms,â&#x20AC;? from outdoor water features and floor-to-ceiling glass at the casino entrance to

URBANA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man who pleaded guilty to stabbing, suffocating and dismembering his girlfriend has been sentenced to life in prison and must serve at least 42 years before being eligible for parole. Matthew Puccio, who was sentenced Monday in Champaign County Common Pleas Court, pleaded guilty last month to aggravated murder in the death of Jessica Rae Sacco along with other charges including felonious assault, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. The remains of Sacco, 21, were found in the bathtub of their apartment in Urbana, in western Ohio, in late March. Authorities said Puccio, 26, stabbed Sacco in the abdomen in an argument and suffocated her hours later with a plastic bag. Prosecutor Nick Selvaggio said in court

Friends tweet before dying

TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Wednesday, Aug. 22, the 235th day of 2012. There are 131 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln publicly responded to Horace Greeley’s “Prayer of Twenty Millions,” which had urged Lincoln to take more drastic steps in abolishing slavery; Lincoln replied that his priority was saving the Union, but also repeated his “personal wish that all men everywhere could be free.” On this date: ■ In 1485, England’s King Richard III was killed in the Battle of Bosworth Field, effectively ending the War of the Roses. ■ In 1787, inventor John Fitch demonstrated his steamboat on the Delaware River to delegates from the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. ■ In 1846, Gen. Stephen W. Kearny proclaimed all of New Mexico a territory of the United States. ■ In 1851, the schooner America outraced more than a dozen British vessels off the English coast to win a trophy that came to be known as the America’s Cup. ■ In 1862, French composer Claude Debussy was born in Saint-Germain-enLaye. ■ In 1922, Irish revolutionary Michael Collins was shot to death, apparently by Irish Republican Army members opposed to the Anglo-Irish Treaty that Collins had co-signed. ■ In 1932, the British Broadcasting Corp. conducted its first experimental television broadcast, using a 30-line mechanical system. ■ In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower Vice President and Richard Nixon were nominated for second terms in office by the Republican national convention in San Francisco. ■ In 1962, French President Charles de Gaulle survived an attempt on his life in suburban Paris. ■ In 1972, President Richard Nixon was nominated for a second term of office by the Republican National Convention in Miami Beach. A hostage drama began at a Chase Manhattan Bank in Brooklyn, N.Y., as John Wojtowicz and Salvatore Naturile seized seven employees during a botched robbery; the episode, which ended with Wojtowicz’s arrest and Naturile’s killing by the FBI, inspired the movie “Dog Day Afternoon.”


Advertising on a roll RYE BROOK, N.Y. (AP) — Two brothers from a New York City suburb have an advertising concept that's on a roll — a roll of toilet paper. Bryan and Jordan Silverman are creators of toilet tissue printed with ads, and sometimes with coupon codes that can be read by cellphones. The JournalNews says in a story Sunday that the brothers expect their product to appear this fall in the Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library. Twenty-two-year-old Jordan Silverman came up with the idea for Star Toilet Paper in 2010. His 18-yearold brother tells the newspaper that he was initially skeptical but came to see it as advertising to “a really captive audience.”

IN THIS March 24 file photo, villagers pray over the grave of one of the sixteen victims killed in a shooting rampage in the Panjwai district of Kandahar province south of Kabul, Afghanistan. It was once President Barack Obama’s “war of necessity.” Now, it’s America’s forgotten war. The Afghan conflict generates barely a whisper on the U.S. presidential campaign trail. It's not a hot topic at the office water cooler or in the halls of Congress — even though 88,000 American troops are still fighting here and dying at a rate of one a day.

Americans tune out Afghan war as fighting rages on KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — It was once President Barack Obama’s “war of necessity.” Now, it’s America’s forgotten war. The Afghan conflict generates barely a whisper on the U.S. presidential campaign trail. It’s not a hot topic at the office water cooler or in the halls of Congress — even though more than 80,000 American troops are still fighting here and dying at a rate of one a day. Americans show more interest in the economy and taxes than the latest suicide bombings in a different, distant land. They’re more tuned in to the political ad war playing out on television than the deadly fight still raging against the Taliban. Earlier this month, protesters at the Iowa State Fair chanted “Stop the war!” They were referring to one purportedly being waged against the middle class. By the time voters go to the polls Nov. 6 to choose between Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the war will be in its 12th year. For most Americans, that’s long enough. Public opinion remains largely negative toward the war, with 66 percent opposed to

it and just 27 percent in favor in a May AP-GfK poll. More recently, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 60 percent of registered voters felt the U.S. should no longer be involved in Afghanistan. Just 31 percent said the U.S. is doing the right thing by fighting there now. Not since the Korean War of the early 1950s — a much shorter but more intense fight — has an armed conflict involving America’s sons and daughters captured so little public attention. “We’re bored with it,” said Matthew Farwell, who served in the U.S. Army for five years including 16 months in eastern Afghanistan, where he sometimes received letters from grade school students addressed to the brave Marines in Iraq — the wrong war. “We all laugh about how no one really cares,” he said. “All the ‘support the troops’ stuff is bumper sticker deep.” Farwell, 29, who is now studying at the University of Virginia, said the war is rarely a topic of conversation on campus — and he isn’t surprised that it’s not discussed much on the campaign trail. “No one understands how to extricate ourselves from the

mess we have made there,” he said. “So from a purely political point of view, I wouldn’t be talking about it if I were Barack Obama or Mitt Romney either.” Ignoring the Afghan war, though, doesn’t make it go away. More than 1,950 Americans have died in Afghanistan and thousands more have been wounded since President George W. Bush launched attacks on Oct. 7, 2001 to rout alQaida after it used Afghanistan to train recruits and plot the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. The war drags on even though al-Qaida has been driven out of largely Afghanistan and its charismatic leader Osama bin Laden is dead — slain in a U.S. raid on his Pakistani hideout last year. Strangely, Afghanistan never seemed to grab the same degree of public and media attention as the war in Iraq, which Obama opposed as a “war of choice.” Unlike Iraq, victory in Afghanistan seemed to come quickly. Kabul fell within weeks of the U.S. invasion in October 2001. The hardline Taliban regime was toppled with few U.S. casualties.

Unheard King audio found in attic NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Stephon Tull was looking through dusty old boxes in his father’s attic in Chattanooga a few months ago when he stumbled onto something startling: an audio reel labeled, “Dr. King interview, Dec. 21, 1960.” He wasn’t sure what he had until he borrowed a friend’s reel-to-reel player and listened to the recording of his father interviewing Martin Luther King Jr. for a book project that never came to

ARREST leave as officers arrived and a lights and siren pursuit followed. Police deployed stop sticks which flattened three of the vehicles’ tires although the chase continued out of the city until the vehicle finally became disabled. No one was injured and police said the woman surrendered without a struggle. Officers said the woman did not display a weapon, but allegedly said she had a knife. Shelby County Sheriff ’s deputies and Ohio Highway Patrol troopers from the Sidney Post assisted in the pursuit. Gessler said as Shawler was taken into custody, offi-

fruition. In clear audio, King discusses the importance of the civil rights movement, his definition of nonviolence and how a recent trip of his to Africa informed his views. Tull said the recording had been in the attic for years, and he wasn’t sure who other than his father may have heard it. “No words can describe. I couldn’t believe it,” he told The Associated Press this week in a phone interview from his home in Chattanooga. “I found … a lost part

of history.” Many recordings of King are known to exist among hundreds of thousands of documents related to his life that have been catalogued and archived. But one historian said the newly discovered interview is unusual because there’s little audio of King discussing his activities in Africa, while two of King’s contemporaries said it’s exciting to hear a little-known recording of their friend for the first time.

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — They were seemingly ordinary tweets from two friends hanging out on a railroad bridge in their hometown, enjoying one last summer night together before heading back to college. “Drinking on top of the Ellicott City sign,” read one. “Looking down on old ec,” read another. Accompanying photos showed their view from the bridge and their bare feet, one with painted blue toenails, dangling over the edge. “Levitating,” read another tweet. Minutes after the messages were sent, a CSX freight train loaded with coal barreled down the tracks and derailed, killing the 19-year-old women and toppling railcars and coal on the streets below. Investigators were still trying to figure out what caused the derailment. Witnesses heard squealing brakes and a thunderous crash around midnight Monday. It wasn’t clear whether the women’s presence on the tracks had anything to do with the derailment. They were sitting on the edge of the bridge as the train passed a few feet behind them, Howard County police said, and their bodies were found buried under coal. Authorities said they needed to do autopsies before their cause of death could be determined. Killed were Elizabeth Conway Nass, a student at James Madison University in Virginia and Rose Louese Mayr, a nursing student at the University of Delaware. The railroad is easily accessible from the picturesque downtown of Ellicott City, and generations of young people have played and partied along the tracks. The railroad was completed in 1830 and crosses over Main Street in the city’s historic district, following the route of the nation’s first commercial railroad, according to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. “We grew up running on those tracks,” said Ellicott City native Bridgette Hammond, 25. “It’s actually really beautiful up there.” Nass and Mayr were on the dance team at Mt. Hebron High School in Ellicott City and planned to finish college in 2014, according to friends and their Facebook pages. One of Nass’ sorority sisters, Donya Mossadeghi, called her “a joy to talk to” and someone who “would never say a bad thing about anybody.” Nass made the dean’s list in the fall in the fall of 2010 and 2011, according to a university spokesman, and another friend said she was studying special education. Tori Mace, of Ellicott City, knew Mayr through mutual friends. “She was really fun, really friendly,” Mace said. A person who answered the telephone at Nass’ home declined to comment, as did a family member who answered at a number listed for the Mayr family.

RATES From Page 1 cers observed a white powdery substance on her mouth after she had spit on the hood of the vehicle during her arrest. The chief said the substance “field tested positive for cocaine.” Shawler is incarcerated in the Shelby County Jail and is expected to appear in court today. In a news release issued Tuesday, Gessler said responsible citizens that get involved “are law enforcement’s best partners. This and many other incidents have ended with a suspect in custody because of local residents’ alertness and involvement.”

MINSTER — Minster Local Schools Board of Education heard a report on an Ohio Department of Education investigation and heard reports on plans and activities for the upcoming school year as students headed back to class this week. Superintendent Brenda Boeke attended a retreat at which Ohio Assistant Superintendent Jim Heirholtz shared information regarding the Common Core, ThirdGrade Guarantee, Evaluation System and Accountability with those present. Boeke noted that Heirholtz shared the “frustration” of the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) regarding the Ohio Auditor’s Office decision to have a statewide investigation into how attendance is being reported by school districts, charter schools and the ODE.

Test scores The investigation is the result of alleged “questionable practices” in Columbus and Toledo and the Lockland School District near Cincinnati. The investigation is focusing on test scores that did not count state report cards because the students taking the tests were allegedly dropped from attendance rolls and then re-enrolled during the school year. Boeke said, “Minster Local Schools does not condone or participate in falsifying the attendance of students.” Heirholtz “indicated that public confidence in the Local School District Report Card Data may be compromised due to the investigation.” Board members heard that teachers learned about the increasing focus and demands of the new curriculum standards for students, Third-Grade Guarantee requirements

and the STAR reading assessment expanded applications. These will be used to help with intervention decisions and planning differentiated instruction. Minster Local Schools will continue to use the “Power Up” theme as classes start for the 201213 school year. The theme involves eight guidance topics: All Systems Go, Grab the Controls, Results Follow Action, Take it to the Next Level, Be Bulls Eye Specific, Little Things Make Big Things Happen, Clean Your Lenses, and Balance Courtesy and Courage. The theme will also be used in the student recognition program.

New students Ten new students registered for classes at Minster this fall, including one student each in kindergarten, second grade, third grade, fourth grade and sixth grade. There will be five new students in the first grade. Two students ave left Minster Local Schools. Kindergartners had their orientation on Monday, and while they took a bus ride and learned about bus safety, their parents visited with teachers. The parents of firstthrough sixth-grade students will attend a curriculum night on Aug. 29. The meeting will provide information for parents and is for parents only. It was noted that phase one of the playground project will be completed Sept. 16 with the installation of the “big toy.” Minster Local Schools is looking for 15 to 20 volunteers to help with installation. The installation will be supervised by Snider and Associates Installers. Posters regarding the project have been posted at the Minster library, Minster State Bank and Wagner’s IGA to promote

community awareness to help with fundraising. The group needs to raise money for future phases of the project. Board members were updated on the installation of cameras on two Minster school buses. Information was provided on taking a proactive approach to reduce disciproblems and pline dealing with special needs on the buses.

Recognition Minster Elementary School officials gave special recognition to the maintenance and custodial staff at their school for having the building in good shape for the new school year. In a report on the Minster Junior/Senior High School, board members were told that there will be eight Minster High School students attending Tri-Star Joint Vocational School and three students will attend Upper Valley Career Center in Piqua. Seven students will participate in post-secondary education. There are six new students who will attend Minster Junior/Senior High School this fall. There were meetings for students in seventh, eighth and ninth grades that were held to get

Fourth Siegrist graduates U.S. Navy boot camp FORT LORAMIE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always an act of sacrifice when our nations sons and daughters volunteer for the U.S. armed forces, and for one family in Fort Loramie this sacrifice happened for the fourth time recently. Seaman Recruit Nicholas Siegrist graduated from Recruit Training Command Great Lakes near Chicago Aug. 10, becoming the fourth son of Louie and Pat Siegrist to enlist in the Navy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very sad to watch him leave but also I am very proud to be able to say that I have four sons who chose to serve their country. Still, with him being the youngest of six children it may have been a little harder to watch him leave because I know that once you go through something like this you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come back the same, you come back a man,â&#x20AC;? said his mother, Patricia. Echoing the statements made by his wife, Louie had this to say when asked how he felt about watching all four sons enlist in the Navy: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a parent I would prefer them to be close around home but at the same time I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but be a little envious of them; they will be seeing things and going places that most people only dream about. I hate not knowing when everyone will be together again and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to plan family events, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the military life. It was a little harder seeing

Siegrists have two other sons on active duty â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in Pittsburgh and Hawaii, along with William, who now works for the U.S. government in Washington, D.C. Their first son, Jeremy, joined as a photographerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mate in 1993 with William following as a lithographer in 1999. With only a bit of a lull, the third brother, Louis, enlisted as a cryptologist technician in 2011, and finally Nicholas, who enlisted as an undesignated seaman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I joined, my older brother, Jeremy, a chief petty officer, told me the Navy was like having a large extended family, but in our case it really feels true. It does give me a sense of pride that all of my brothers have served or are serving our country. I know he is ready for this and given our families history it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unexpected that he too would enlist.â&#x20AC;? said older brother Louis, who is currently stationed aboard the USS Hopper (DDG70) out of Pearl Harbor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowing how hard Nick had to push to get through boot camp and the obstacles he overcame to get there makes it all the more important and special,â&#x20AC;?

Vote likely on separating tournaments Public, private school issue rages on BY JIM NAVEAU Ohio Community Media COLUMBUS — Expect to see Ohio high school administrators voting in May on a proposal to establish separate public and private school tournaments. Backers of a two-tournaments arrangement have collected the required number of signatures from around the state to put the measure to a vote, Ohio High School Athletic Association spokesman Tim Stried said on Monday. Now all that stands between the proposal and a vote is some paperwork. This is the latest effort by a group, led by several Wayne County school administrators, to separate public and private schools in postseason play. The OHSAA opposes splitting the two tournaments. “We’re hoping that doesn’t happen,” Streid said about going to separate tournaments. “We’ve said publicly that we are oppposed to that.” To try to forestall a vote on

separate tournaments, the OHSAA created a competitive balance proposal, which was rejected in 2010 and again in 2011 by narrow margins. The original version, and the slightly tweaked second version, included a boundary factor, a socio-economic factor and a tradition factor. It was voted down 339-301 in 2011 and 332-303 in 2010. Proposals for separate tournaments were rejected 84 percent to 16 percent in 1978 and 67 percent to 33 percent in 1993. Supporters of two tournaments say sentiment has shifted more in their direction in recent years when private schools, who make up just 17 percent of the total number of schools in Ohio, have won 43 percent of state titles in football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer and volleyball since 1999. To get an item put up for a vote by the OHSAA’s member schools, 75 signatures must be collected, with at least five SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg from each district of the OHSAA.

Post 217’s Bollinger Lady Jackets open soccer named league MVP The Sidney Post 217 American Legion baseball team recently concluded its season with a banquet, during which several awards were handed out. The big winner was catcher D a l t o n Bollinger, who Bollinger was not only voted the Most Valuable Player by his teammates, but also by the league. Bollinger finished his second season with the Legion team with his second straight batting average of over .400. This season, he was 52 for 124 for .419, with 32 runs, nine doubles, three triples and 32 runs batted in. “Dalton was also a solid defensive catcher for us all season,” said Post 217 coach Jason McLain. “And we get him back for two more seasons.” Bollinger also won the Best Offensive Player award at the banquet.

The Best Defensive Player award went to Treg Francis of Russia. “Treg was solid on the mound and at second base all year,” said McLain. “He had a great Legion season, hitting .317 as well. The good news is Treg will be back next season. He’s received a lot of interest from college teams, and we look forward to having him back.” Two $300 scholarships were given to senior players going on to college. The recipients were both from Greenville in Rusty Hodgson and Ryan Miller. Hodgson is going to Clark State to continue his baseball career, and Miller will be attending Sinclair. “It was a good season and we appreciate the support and donations we got this season,” said McLain. Jim and Nancy Koewler deserve a lot of thanks for the time they devoted to the Legion program, organizing and running it. The coaches and players appreciated it very much.

Sidney’s Donahue adds third world championship Larry Donahue of Sidney captured his third world title after competing in the Natural A t h l e t e Strength Association’s World Cup of Powerlifting earlier this month in Oklahome City. Donahue Donahue, 65, lifted in the 181-pound class of the Master’s 3 (60-69) unequipped division. He completed eight of nine lifts for a first in the powerlifting and five of six lifts for another first in the bench/deadlift division. He squatted 292.1 pounds, benched 225.97 and deadlifted 352.26 pounds for a total of 870.8 pounds. His bench and deadlift gave him a 628.23 pound total in the division. In addition, his deadlift total broke his current Ohio

state record and his powerlifting total broke his current world record, both of which he had recently surpassed at the USA Nationals in Springfield. His bench/deadlift total of 628.23 in Oklahoma City set a second world record. Donahue had asked his family and friends to sponsor his lifting for a penny a pound in an attempt to raise $500 for Shelby County Relay for Life’s First Church of God team. Ohio’s next meet will be the Ohio Regionals on Oct. 30 at the Quality Inn in Springfield. Donahue’s next meet will be either the unequipped Nationals in Dallas in November or the Natural Nationals and Awards Banquet in Oklahoma City in February.

season with 5-0 victory

The Sidney High girls opened their soccer season in an impressive way, blanking visiting Tecumseh 5-0 at the soccer compex Monday night. The scoring started early on, just two minutes into the game. Konner Harris sent a long ball to Morgan Knasel for a score. “We added many shots after that, but we couldn’t add another goal until 11:35 left in the half,” said Sidney coach Stacey Goffena. That came on a corner kick from Morgan Knasel to Tina Echemann for a 2-0 lead at the half. “We had 19 shots in the first half and only converted on two of them,” said Goffena. “While we were having great passing combinations, we needed to finish shots.” Sidney continued its domination in the second half as far as possessing the ball, but didn’t score until midway through the period. At the 20:23 mark, Echemann took a shot that the goalkeeper got a hand on, but she was able to get her own deflection and put it in the net. Then just five minutes later, Adrianne Miller passed the ball up the middle to Monique Hanayik for a goal and a 4-0 lead. The final goal of the game came at the 10:12 mark when Echemann found Hanayik for her second goal of the game. “I thought this was a great way to start our season,” said Goffena. “We started out a little slow and had trouble finishing shots, but overall we

played the ball well and possessed most of the game. We will need to finish better on Wednesday when Beavercreek comes to town. The Sidney junior varsity team also won big, the score being 6-0.

Lady Cavs beat Greeneview 1st time JAMESTOWN — Lehman’s girls soccer team celebrated the start of a new season by defeating an opponent for the first time ever Tuesday night here. The Lady Cavs posted a 4-1 victory over Greeneview to give coach Tony Schroeder a victory in his first game with the Lady Cavs. “It was a good game for us,” Schroeder said. “It was a good way to start the season, seeing as how we’d never beaten them before.” Lehman didn’t waste any time taking control, scoring just nine minutes into the game on a shot from Sarah Titterington. Jenna Kronenberg assisted for a 1-0 lead. But that’s how it stayed the rest of the half, despite the Lady Cavs dominating in possession. “We outshot them 16-4 in the first half and pretty much dominated the game. The defense was really good, with Jordy Emrick and Carly Baird our anchors in the back. And Stephany McEldowney played a great game at outside fullback,” said Schroeder. Lehman finally added another goal with 18 minutes to go in the game when Titter-

ington got a breakway and stuck it in the left corner of the net. With 11 minutes to go, McKenna Guillozet scored off a double assist, with Titterington passing to Sarah Fuller, who then got the ball to Guillozet for the score. And with six minutes left, Elizabeth Edwards scored unassisted from 18 yards out. Greeneview scored on a direct kick from 25 yards out with four minutes remaining. Ally Hall had five saves in the second half for Lehman. The Lady Cavs return to action Saturday at Celina, with the junior varsity game starting at 11 a.m. NOTE: The Lehman and Greeneview boys were scheduled to play following the girls game Tuesday at Greeneview but the game was cancelled due to the weather.

Anna wins opener Anna also won its season opener, blanking Indian Lake 7-0 in action Tuesday. The Lady Rockets are 1-0 and play Preble Shawnee Saturday at home. Erica Huber led the way for the Lady Rockets, scoring three goals and also assisting on two others. Kayla Blankenship had two goals and an assist, and Rachel Christman and Raquel Bollheimer added one goal each. Emily Cavinder added an assist. Anna held a 27-1 advantage in shots on goal over the Lady Lakers, who are now 02.

Jackets tie Beavercreek 1-1 BEAVERCREEK — Sidney took on a Beavercreek team that made it to the Division I state semifinals last season, and came away with a 1-1 tie in a weather-shortened game Tuesday night to open the season. “That was a huge score,” said Sidney coach Eric Harlamert. “I think that score will send shockwaves around the

area. I really have to credit the defense. They really played well.” Beavercreek scored first with 5:53 remaining in the first half, but Sidney came back just over a minute later on a goal by Brady Gaylor. Preston Heath played a through ball to Gaylor, who took the shot. It was deflected, but Gaylor was there to put

the rebound shot it. The two teams played just 90 seconds of the second half before the game was delayed and eventually called because of weather. “It was big to come away with a tie against them,” Harlamert added. Sidney returns to action on Thursday with a trip to Hilliard Davidson

And we had two freshmen who played big roles in Ethan Schnipke and Mason Huelskamp.” Everett and Gillem scored three goals apiece and Ryan Lessing had the other goal.

CLEVELAND BROWNS quarterback Colt McCoy (12) waits his turn during the NFL football team's training camp practice in Berea, Ohio Tuesday. gency right now to settle that,” Shurmur said. “Week 1 (regular season), it will pretty much be unveiled who’s two and who’s three. I don’t necessarily see the drama in it, quite frankly.” The waiting game could benefit the Browns. Should another team’s quarterback get hurt, McCoy and Wallace become more valuable bargaining chips. McCoy hasn’t approached success, but has flashed promise in Cleveland after a stellar career at Texas, where he set 47 school records as the only NCAA quarterback to win 10 or more games in each of his four seasons. A third-round pick in 2010, McCoy completed a Browns rookie record 61 percent of his passes in eight starts, including a 30-17 upset at defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans in his second start. McCoy threw at least one touchdown pass in each of his first five games after Shurmur be-

The annual Lehman Golf Outing was held recently at Shelby Oaks, with 76 participants. The winning team was John Spoltman, Tom Spoltman, Scott Guggenbiller and Dan Swiger with a 56.7. The event benefits the athletic programs at Lehman.

“I’ve gotten a lot better,” he said. McCoy enjoys seeing others improve, too, even if they are catching passes from Cleveland’s other quarterbacks. “I’ve played with those guys for all year last year and a little bit of the first year, and I’ve got a lot invested with those guys,” he said. “I continue to work hard. I’m doing it for them, too, not just myself. “That’s all I can do right now. I’m a Cleveland Brown and proud to be one.” NOTES: New owner Jimmy Haslam III watched practice from the middle of the field, chatting with team president Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert, but was unavailable for comment. Haslam’s $1 billion purchase from Randy Lerner of the team is awaiting NFL approval. ... DT John Hughes and DE Juqua Parker returned to practice. Both had been out with undisclosed injuries.

came coach in 2011. He missed the final three games with a concussion after taking a helmet-tohelmet hit by Steelers linebacker James Harrison on Dec. 8. One of the criticisms of McCoy is a lack of arm strength. He suffered a pinched nerve in his throwing shoulder in his final game for Texas in January 2010. “My shoulder has been fine,” McCoy said. McCoy was on target with throws Tuesday, a tad more accurate than Wallace, but lacking the same velocity as the strong-armed Weeden. “When I first got diagnosed with this,” McCoy said, “the doctor said it was a 2 to 3-year recovery. OK? So now I’m getting to that point, and my shoulder feels really good. The ball’s coming out well. There’s a lot of zip on it.” McCoy remains dedicated despite his different role. He still stays after practice to work on routes with certain receivers and is confident it has helped.

The Shelby County Community Tennis Association (CTA) was formed in 2009 to promote the growth of tennis in our area. On July 24, the CTA completed its fifth session of Youth Team Tennis. Thirty-two youngsters participated in this program using the “QuickStart” format. This method allows children to learn the sport using smaller courts, low compression tennis balls, and shorter racquets. As part of Youth Team Tennis, parents were asked to discuss local charities and charitable giving with their children. Then, during each night of tennis, the children had the opportunity to donate their pennies, quarters, and even dol-

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Colt McCoy won’t say he wants out of Cleveland, though he no longer starts for the Browns. “I love my teammates, I love this organization, I love this city,” McCoy said Tuesday after another practice with the second-team offense. McCoy said being replaced at quarterback by rookie Brandon Weeden hasn’t made him request a trade. The former Texas star, who started 13 games a year ago before getting a concussion, maintains he is proud to be in Cleveland. “I got drafted here, I spent a lot of time here, I feel comfortable with what we’re doing,” McCoy said. “We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs, and I’m a Cleveland Brown. That’s what I am.” The Browns (No. 30 in AP Pro32) have been expected to deal McCoy — if only to remove second-guessing by fans over using the No. 22 overall pick on Weeden, a 28-year-old former baseball pitcher. Yet McCoy is still competing with 10-year veteran Seneca Wallace for backup duties. Behind them is Thaddeus Lewis, claimed on waivers a year ago from St. Louis. Lewis may factor into coach Pat Shurmur’s decision on selecting backups. “There’s something to Thad that I think is worth developing,” said Shurmur, who coached Lewis in 2010 when the former Duke passer was on the Rams’ practice squad. For now, McCoy is preparing to play Friday against Philadelphia and ignoring trade rumors. “I’m focusing on the Eagles,” he said. “If something does happen, that’s really out of my control. What I can control is to work and prepare to be the best I can be for the Browns.” McCoy is tired of being asked about the Browns’ backup plans, which Shurmur seems in no hurry to reveal. “I don’t see a real ur-

To earn accreditation, schools must meet NCA CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school, and implement a continuous process of school improvement. Accreditation is granted on a five-year term. “Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents, and community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators,” Stauffer stated. NCA CASI accreditation is recognized across state lines, which eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school. Accreditation also assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice. Dr. Mark Elgart, president/CEO of AdvancED, the parent organization of NCA CASI, stated, “NCA CASI Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. Lehman is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.” “Lehman Catholic has been accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement since 1991,” Lehman President Mike Barhorst said. “I have long been a proponent of accreditation, and believe that there is tremendous value in the knowledge gained through the accreditation process. It is unfortunate that so many schools have abandoned accreditation in an effort to save scarce dollars. In fact, Lehman has dual accreditation — we are also accredited by the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association.” Dedicated to advancing excellence in education through accreditation, research, and professional services, AdvancED is the world’s largest education community, serving and engaging more than 27,000 public and private schools and districts in 69 countries and serving nearly 16 million students. AdvancED is the parent organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). NCA CASI is a nongovernmental, voluntary association of nearly 10,000 public and private elementary and secondary schools throughout the world.

Lowes’ results miss expectations BY MICHELLE CHAPMAN Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — For Lowe’s, the improving housing market is still a bust. The nation’s second largest improvement retailer cut its full-yearearnings and revenue forecasts Monday after posting a 10 percent drop in second-quarter net income. Revenue at stores opened at least a year, a key yardstick for measuring the health of the retailer, declined 0.4 percent. Lowe’s results were hurt in part by a timing shift in how the retailer reported the quarter and a charge tied to job cuts. But the latest performance also shows the company’s efforts to revamp its merchandise and prices aren’t working while its rival Home Depot is getting a boost from the improving but still weak housing market. In particular, Lowe’s return last summer to offering permanent low prices in many items across the store, instead of offering fleeting discounts, hasn’t yet resonated with shoppers who have been accustomed to seeing big sales signs. In fact, Lowe’s said Monday that it will take until the middle of next year to reap the benefits of the strategy. Earlier, Lowe’s said it would happen by the end of 2012. The company said it is taking apart its pricing plan to have a better balance between temporary promotions and permanent discounts based on what it’s learned from shoppers.

“We knew it would take time to see the full benefits of our actions,” Lowe’s chairman, president and CEO Bob Niblock told investors during a call Monday following the release. “The team is making progress on these initiatives, but frankly, the benefits are accruing at a slower rate than I had expected.” Lowe’s performance is in contrast to last week’s upbeat report from

Home Depot Inc. The nation’s largest home-improvement retailer boosted its full-year outlook, citing its performance so far this year. And said that strong cost controls and healthy sales of paint, bathroom accessories and kitchen installations helped lift its net income by 12 percent during the period. Revenue at stores opened at least a year rose 2.1 percent.

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) For the next six weeks, you have an increasing desire to become more efficient and productive. Go with this urge! Color-code your closets or alphabetize your CDs. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A fun-filled month awaits you. Try to go on a vacation if you can. Accept invitations to parties. Attend sports events, and enjoy playful activities with children. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) For the next month, your focus will turn to home, family and your domestic life. You might entertain at home, or you might cocoon at home. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Fasten your seat belts, because the next six weeks are busy with short trips, errands and running around. You’ve got places to go, people to see and things to do! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Money, cash flow and earnings have your attention now. In the month ahead, focus on pulling your cash scene together. Find out what’s happening, because information is power. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) The Sun now enters your sign, where it will stay for the next month, recharging your batteries for the rest of the year. Favorable situations and people will be attracted to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Work alone or behind the scenes in the month ahead to strategize what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about. Write down some goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Get ready for a popular six weeks ahead. Accept all invitations. Join clubs, groups and associations. Enjoy the company of friends and acquaintances.

This flattering light makes you look good to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because the Sun is now as far away from your sign as it gets all year, you will need more sleep. After all, the Sun is your source of energy. YOU BORN TODAY You’re intense about everything you do. Because you’re a perfectionist with high standards, many of you excel at a particular technique. You’re clever about discovering how things work. Personally, you like to hang out with exciting people. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new.
