Isaac keeps churning BY DANICA COTO The Associated Press SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Tropical Storm Isaac churned toward the Dominican Republic and Haiti on Thursday, threatening to strengthen into a hurricane that could take a shot at

Florida just as the Republicans gather for their national convention. The storm dumped heavy rain across eastern and southern Puerto Rico and whipped up waves as high as 10 feet (3 meters) in the Caribbean as it moved through the region. U.S. forecasters said Isaac

could become a Category 1 hurricane Friday as it approaches the island of Hispaniola, which is shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It was expected to weaken a little while crossing over Haiti and the eastern two-thirds of Cuba. The storm was projected to

A first kiss or family tradition What’s your favorite theater memory? BY MELANIE SPEICHER A first date. A family tradition of attending a movie every Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday. The chance to see your favorite actor in action. What are your memories of the Historic Sidney Theatre? That’s what Raise the Roof for the Arts organization is seeking from residents of Shelby County and surrounding areas. “We want everyone to share their favorite memory of going to the movie theater,” said

Mardie Milligan, president of the Raise the Roof for the Arts. “Those memories will bring the theater to life as we begin our campaign to restore the theater.” Some of the memories, said Milligan, will be published in the Sidney Daily News as part of the restoration campaign.

Seven injured as vehicle strikes horse-drawn buggy BELLEFONTAINE — Seven people were injured Tuesday, one seriously, when a sport utility vehicle driven by a Sidney man crashed into the back of a horsedrawn carriage in Pleasant Township of Logan County, near Bellefountaine. of the Troopers Marysville Ohio Highway Patrol Post responded shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday to Ohio 47,

west of Ohio 235, where a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven west on the state highway by Curtis Johnson, 48, of Sidney, had crashed into the back of a Amish buggy, injuring seven people. Troopers said Johnson, who has been charged with failure to maintain assured clear distance ahead, told them the setting sun prevented him from seeing the buggy.

The buggy was operated by Johnie Wagler, 47, of DeGraff. He and five occupants of the carriage were transported to Mary Rutan Hospital. They included Sarah Wagler, 47; John Wagler, 14; Rudy Wagler, 8; Lewis Wagler, 12; and Naomi Wagler, 10; all of DeGraff. Injuries to John Wagler and Sarah Wagler were listed as incapacitating. The children’s in-

juries were nonincapacitating. Another buggy occupant, Lizie Schwartz, 78, of DeGraff, was transported to Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney with a possible head wound. Johnson did not report any injuries A number of emergency personnel and members of the Amish community also responded to the accident scene.

Program to deal with swallowing disorders MINSTER — P.T. Services will present a program on swallowing disorders to the public at the Francis J. Stallo Memorial Library in Minster Sept. 5 at 10:30 a.m. Licensed speech lanpathologist guage Denise Bergman will discuss eating, drinking and swallowing issues

related to injuries, such as traumatic brain injury and as well as aging. issues Swallowing can reportedly lead to aspiration pneumonia, which occurs when foreign materials (usually food, liquids, vomit or fluids from the mouth) are breathed into the lungs or airways leading

to the lungs. Based on the Center for Disease Control data, more people die annually from dysphagia-related causes than from all forms of liver disease, kidney disease, and HIV-AIDS combined — and nearly as many as died from diabetes, the No. 6 killer of Americans. The goal of the

presentation is to inform the public of red flags of a swallowing issue, provide simple tips for safer swallowing, and review diet levels and tests and treatments available. Seating is limited, so people should call or visit the library to make a reservation. The telephone number is (419) 628-2925.

104 E. Mason Rd., Sidney


COLUMBUS (AP) — A coalition of voter advocacy groups has filed a lawsuit in the Ohio Supreme Court that challenges the wording approved for its ballot issue. The Voters First coalition wants to revamp how Ohio draws legislative and congressional districts. Its proposed constitutional amendment would strip state and federal elected officials of map-drawing powers and give them to a 12-person citizen commission. The issue was cleared for November’s ballot. But the group asked the high court Thursday to throw out the language approved by the Ohio Ballot Board. The coalition says the wording isn’t fair or accurate. It wants the court to reconvene the board to draft new language or to have the court write it.

Few may qualify for assistance BY TOM BARNETT Although the U.S Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency has announced disaster assistance available to Shelby and area counties affected by the June 29 windstorm, few local individuals may qualify, Shelby County Farm Service Agency director Roger Lentz says. The FEMA announcement relates to local recovery efforts (facilities, crop and livestock damages) from the storms and straight-line winds that struck the area through July 2. “First and most impor-

tant,” Lentz said, “assistance is in the form of a loan, not grants, and producers must have been denied loans from two local lending agencies in order to even apply for federal assistance. “Area producers would have to be in pretty dire straights to qualify for the program,” he said. “Producers may still be able to salvage half of a normal corn crop and soybeans may harvest at 70 to 80 percent return.” The FEMA announcement follows President Barack Obama’s major disaster designation issued for Ohio. Other eligible area counties include Auglaize, Champaign, Logan and Miami.

Two arrested after marijuana sweep Last Friday, the Shelby County Sheriff’s office, Sidney Police and agents with the attorney general’s office’s BCI&I conducted a marijuana eradication sweep in the county, Sheriff John Lenhart said Thursday. Using a helicopter and ground units, officers were able to look for marijuana plants growing outside in Shelby County. The efforts resulted in seizure of 34 mature marijuana plants, 33 of them in one location where the grower had placed artificial flowers in an effort to disguise the plants. One plant was seized

at a second location. Lenhart said David Lorison, a county resident, and Dean Cobb of Sidney have both been charged with cultivating marijuana. “I personally thank the police department and BCI&I for their efforts with our search,” the sheriff said. “I would also like to ask the public to call the sheriff’s office or the Sidney-Shelby County Narcotics Task Force if they see any suspicious activity on their properties by calling 4981111 or 498-8777.” Lenhart said all information provided will be kept confidential.

HALE ceeding current Village Administrator Randy Gump who back in April announced his retirement resignation from the village effective Jan. 1, 2013. “Village officials extend a warm welcome to Rodd Hale as he joins the Versailles team and will continue his career beginning with the village on Aug. 20,” the release continued. “While I am very excited to start a new chapter in my career, it is with regret I will be leaving the administrative team of the city of Greenville,” said Hale. “I sincerely value the time I have spent as the director of public safety and service for the city of Greenville.

They had to have an excuse if they weren’t there. “There was always a crowd on Thursday nights that included the regular customers,” he said.

Kentucky attorney disbarred for ‘appalling’ conduct

Ohio may house seized exotic animals COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio officials want to build a state facility that would temporarily house potentially dozens of exotic animals confiscated under a new law that’s about to take effect. A price tag is still being calculated, a spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Agriculture told The Associated Press on Thursday. And a legislative committee would have to approve the funds. Any seized animals, which could range from long constricting snakes to Bengal tigers, would be cared for under the supervision of the state veterinarian, said Erica Pitchford, the department’s spokeswoman. The proposal comes as the state prepares to crack down on owners of exotic animals, without yet knowing exactly how many lions, leopards, bears and other creatures are living in the state. The facility would be built at the department’s campus in a rural part of Reynoldsburg, just outside Columbus, Pitchford said. The department’s offices are near those of the state fire marshal and close to fields. While the entire campus is already fenced, the state would erect more fencing around the animal facility and possibly hire a security guard.

“This is not going to be a threat to our employees, just like it won’t be a threat to our neighbors,” Pitchford said. “It will be well built, it will be very secure, and it will be well looked after.” State officials had looked at multiple other options, including sending the animals to zoos, sanctuaries or other wildlife areas. All ideas were all rejected in a favor of a single facility, Pitchford said. That way, the state could minimize transportation and the chance that something would go wrong with the animals. Plus, Pitchford said, the agency also wanted to take advantage of the expertise that had on site to care for the animals. “At least if they are here, they are being looked after properly,” she said. The building is being designed so that it can be converted to other uses, once the state no longer needs the housing for the animals. Additional details, such as the structure’s dimensions, are still being worked out and reviewed by the state’s architect. Pitchford noted the state intends to meet the same caging standards it’s requiring of owners under the new law. Cages and secured fencing isn’t cheap, Pitchford acknowledged. “And we’re not going to skirt on this.”

Diller blazed trail for comedians

The only guy in her act was a husband named Fang, who was never seen and didn’t exist. “Please recognize she paved the way single handedly for years for us female comedians,” wrote Griffin on Twitter. The Friars Club released a statement Monday noting that in 1988 Diller was among the first women admitted — legitimately. A few years earlier, she had snuck in for a Sid Caesar roast, dressed as a man. Born Phyllis Driver in Lima, Ohio, she married Sherwood Diller right out of school (Bluffton College) and was a housewife for several years before getting outside work.

this world,” while Patton Oswalt said she always seemed “genuinely tickled and happy” during her near century of life. Diller passed away Monday morning in her Los Angeles home at age 95. She faced the end, fittingly, “with a smile on her face,” said longtime manager Milton Suchin. The comedian, who suffered a near-fatal heart attack in 1999, was found by her son, Perry Diller. The cause of her death has not been released. She wasn’t the first woman to crack jokes on stage; Gracie Allen had been getting laughs for decades playing dumb for George Burns. But Diller was among the first who didn’t need a man


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Long before Kathy Griffin was languishing on the D-list, Roseanne Barr was calling herself a domestic goddess and Joan Rivers was asking audiences if they could talk, wild-haired housewife-turned-comedian Phyllis Diller was dishing one-liners about her husband, Fang. “I should have suspected my husband was lazy,” she once joked. “On our wedding day, his mother told me, ‘I’m not losing a son. I’m gaining a couch.’” Diller was the template for self-deprecating female comedians. She not only motivated a generation of funny women, such as Ellen DeGeneres and Whoopi Goldberg, her silver-tongued zingers — often punctuated by her trademark cackle — paved the way for them. And she inspired funny guys, too. “Loved her,” wrote Andy Richter on Twitter on Monday. “Sad to hear she died. A hero of mine.” Dane Cook called her “a funny human being that brought tons of laughs to

clients who have put their trust and faith in one of its practitioners will not be tolerated, Minton wrote in a 22-page opinion. Moeves is the defendant in at least five civil suits in Kenton County, has been suspended from practicing law in Ohio and was arrested in December 2010 in Kentucky and charged with felony theft. The Supreme Court found that Moeves took part in multiple fraudulent schemes involving clients from 2005 through 2012 and admitted to them in his resignation from the bar. The cases all have similar threads — Moeves taking money from a client and promising to do legal work, then either brushing off the client or repeatedly promising to complete the legal task, but not doing so. In one case Minton cited from 2007, a woman

hired Moeves to represent her in a federal criminal case in Alabama and to investigate whether her accountant was embezzling from her. Moeves told Baird he believed the money was being taken to Mexico and took funds for private investigators and trips to that country. Moeves also told Baird he was friends with a U.S. senator who could get her a passport for $20,000. The passport never materialized and the senator, who wasn’t named, told Baird he’d never heard of Moeves, Minton wrote. Moeves later refunded $123,363 to Baird and promised another $315,000, but it remains unclear if those funds were repaid, Minton wrote. Baird would later plead guilty to harboring illegal aliens and serve three years of probation. She sued Moeves in 2009 and filed a bar complaint against him.

Views vary on voting hours COLUMBUS (AP) — Early voting hours are the same for the first time across the battleground state of Ohio, but the views are varied. The hours have been met with pushback by several county officials, adopted by others and sparked a letter to the state’s elections chief from at least one election board member. The new early voting times have come up at

boards of election meetings across the state, mostly notably in southwest Ohio where two Democratic election officials face possible removal for voting to expand the hours beyond those outlined by Secretary of State Jon Husted. Elsewhere, boards in counties including Lake and Butler have accepted the new times and posted them on

their websites. Ohio is one of 32 states, plus the District of Columbia, that allow voters to cast an early ballot in person without having to give a reason. Before Husted’s directive, 88 county election boards — composed of two Republicans and two Democrats apiece — were setting their own early voting hours. Weekend and evening hours differed.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A northern Kentucky attorney has been permanently disbarred by the state’s highest court, which said Thursday that his actions in bilking clients out of hundreds of thousands of dollars were “appalling and reprehensible.” The Kentucky Supreme Court revoked the law license of Patrick Edward Moeves of Fort Wright after he sought to voluntarily resign. Chief Justice John D. Minton found that Moeves took hundreds of thousands of dollars in at least 13 cases, but failed to perform the legal work in conjunction with being hired. Moeves also told several clients he was terminally ill, even though he wasn’t. He also spent time in prison for defrauding a client. “Conduct that besmirches the dignity of the profession and harms

Her ‘twin’ was thief BIG BEAVER, Pa. (AP) Police say a western Pennsylvania woman blamed her nonexistent twin sister for stealing items from a hotel room. The Beaver County Times reports Wednesday that police charged 31-yearold Jennifer Brown, of Rochester, with false reports and theft. State police say Brown took some bed clothes, an alarm clock, coffee pot, basket and a hair dryer — worth a total of $206 — from the Holiday Inn in Big Beaver on Aug. 5. Police say they found Brown in another hotel nearby and she claimed her twin sister had taken the items. When police found no record of a sister, they say Brown claimed her sister had just returned the items, which police found in the other hotel room. Police say relatives confirmed she doesn’t have a twin.

On the campaign trail Romney promises energy independence

AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File

IN THIS June 24, 2009, file photo, Herb Allison testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. Allison, a veteran businessman and Washington hand chosen by the Obama administration to head an independent review of a controversial government energy loan program gave more than $50,000 to the president’s re-election campaign in recent months, according to an Associated Press review of campaign finance records.

Energy loan watchdog an Obama donor WASHINGTON (AP) — A veteran Wall Street executive who performed an independent review that exonerated the Obama administration’s program of loans to energy companies contributed $52,500 to re-elect President Barack Obama in the months since completing his work, according to an Associated Press review of campaign records. The executive defended the integrity of his conclusions and said he decided to donate to Obama after his work was finished. The campaign contributions to Obama started just weeks after Herbert M. Allison Jr., in congressional testimony in March, minimized concerns that the Energy Department was at high risk in more than $23 billion in federal loans awarded to green energy firms. Two weeks later, Allison began giving to the Obama campaign. His contributions to Obama and the Democratic National Committee totaled $52,500 by last month. Allison previously was the former head of the government’s mass purchase of toxic Wall Street assets. Allison did not make any Obama donations during his four-month review of Energy Department loans, and he has a long history of working with and giving money to both political parties. However, Republican Party officials and congressional critics of the energy loans said Allison’s dona-

tions to Obama raise doubts about his objectivity and highlight his decision not to assess multimillion-dollar loans to two companies that later went into bankruptcy — the troubled Solyndra solar panel company and Beacon Power (NASDAQ:BCON) , an energy storage firm. Allison’s report, completed in February and touted by the White House, acknowledged that the Energy Department could lose as much as $3 billion in loans, but it concluded that was far less than the $10 billion set aside by Congress for high-risk companies. The review did not assess the two bankrupt firms because those loans were no longer current. Allison told Congress that “DOE has negotiated protections in the loan agreements that enable it to cut off further funding and to demand more credit protection if projects do not meet targets.” He also urged the Energy Department to toughen its oversight. Allison defended the integrity of his review in an interview with The Associated Press. He said that he did not make the decision to back a presidential candidate until after he had finished his work and that his selection was approved by Energy Department lawyers before he began his review last October to “ensure there was no hint of bias or conflict of interest.”

HOBBS, N.M. (AP) — Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney promised on Thursday to aggressively expand off-shore oil drilling along Virginia, North Carolina and the Gulf of Mexico, changing the subject from social issues like abortion and Medicare that have dominated the debate in the days before the critical Republican National Convention. Speaking to voters in the heart of New Mexico’s oil and gas industry, Romney declared that his energy plans — which include drilling for oil in a federal Alaskan wildlife reserve — would create 3 million jobs and more than $1 trillion in new revenue. And he predicted complete “North American energy independence by 2020, a neverrealized goal claimed by presidential candidates for decades.” “That means we produce all the energy we use in North America,” Romney said, emphasizing an expansion of oil and gas over wind and solar production. “This is not some pie-in-the-sky kind of thing. This is a real achievable objective.” President Barack Obama did not face voters on Thursday. Instead, he deployed a popular former president, Bill Clinton, to help convince a divided electorate that he simply needs more time to fix the nation’s struggling economy. Clinton is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention next month and play a promi-

nent role in the final months before Election Day. “We need to keep going with his plan,” Clinton says of Obama in a new television ad set to run in eight battleground states. The push to re-frame the debate comes at a delicate time, sandwiched between the sudden resurgence of abortion in the race and Monday’s opening of the Republican National Convention. The event in Tampa is supposed to be all about nominating Romney, emphasizing his plans for the economy and projecting unity. But those plans were disrupted this week by Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin of Missouri, who said in an interview that victims of “legitimate rape” can biologically avoid pregnancy. Romney, who has relentlessly tried to avoid a fight over social issues, led a chorus of Republican officials who demanded Akin abandon his Senate bid. The congressman has so far refused. The uproar raises broader concerns for Romney’s effort to win over female voters. At the same time, a strengthening tropical storm is forcing Republicans to prepare for big schedule changes or even the possibility of mandatory evacuations. GOP convention planners on Thursday said they are working closely with local officials and are moving forward with the convention as scheduled.

SEAL author identified WASHINGTON (AP) — The Navy SEAL who wrote an account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden under a pseudonym was identified Thursday as Matt Bissonnette, who retired from the Navy last summer. Bissonnette was first identified by Fox News. One current and one former U.S. military official confirmed the name, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss military personnel matters. The book, “No Easy Day,” is scheduled to be released Sept. 11, with the author listed under the pseudonym of Mark Owen. Penguin Group (USA)’s Dutton imprint, the publisher, asked news organizations Thursday to withhold his identity. “Sharing the true story of his personal experience in ‘No Easy Day’ is a courageous act in the face of obvious risks to his personal security,” Dutton spokeswoman Christine Ball said in a statement. “That personal security is the sole reason the book is being published under a pseudonym.” Bissonnette also changed the names of the other SEALs in the account, the publisher says. Efforts to locate Bissonnette for comment were unsuccessful. Special Operations Command spokesman Col. Tim Nye said the retired SEAL could be endangered by being identified, which could also expose those active-duty SEALs the author worked with in the killing of bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan last year.

Thousands of refugees in limbo in Pakistan ISLAMABAD (AP) — Abdul Karim walked for nearly 12 hours to cross the border into Pakistan and escape the warlords who were raining rockets on his neighborhood in the Afghan capital Kabul. That was nearly two decades ago, when he was a young teenager. Since then, he’s gotten married and raised six children, all born in Pakistan. He is one of 1.7 million Afghan refugees who have been living in limbo in Pakistan for years as part of one of the world’s largest and longest-running refugee crisis. But after 30 years of hosting Afghans, many Pakistanis are

growing frustrated with the toll they say the refugee population is taking on their country, and pressure is mounting on the government to do something. The Pakistani government is now weighing whether to remove their refugee status, a step that would increase the pressure on them to go home. Most of the refugees can’t fathom returning to Afghanistan any time soon. They may feel like outsiders in Pakistan, but they say their homeland is still too violent and desperately poor. “Unless the Pakistani government

forced us back to Kabul, I am in no mood to go there,” said Karim. “There is no safety… We have nothing left there.” The Afghan population in Pakistan is the legacy of Afghanistan’s repeated conflicts. Millions streamed across the border after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, the start of a decade-long war against the occupation. After the Soviets pulled out, the country was torn apart by fighting between warlords, and more Afghans fled. When the Taliban rose to power in 1996 their strict form of Sunni Islam further terrorized the population.

ISAAC Isaac was centered 210 miles (340) kilometers southeast of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Thursday evening, and its maximum sustained winds had strengthened a bit to 45 mph (75 kph). It was moving westnorthwest at 16 mph (26 kph), according to the hurricane center. Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe urged people to avoid crossing rivers and to tape their windows, and said they should ask relatives overseas to wire money so they can stock up on food and water. Above all, he said, it was important to stay calm. “Panic

From Page 1 creates more problems,” he said. Lamothe and other officials in Haiti, which is prone to flooding, said that the government has set aside about $50,000 in emergency funds and that it had buses and 32 boats on standby for evacuations. While Haiti’s government spent the day preparing for Isaac, others did not because they didn’t have the means. The notion of preparation in a country where the bulk of the population gets by on about $2 a day was met with a shrug. “We don’t have houses that can bear a hurricane,” said

Jeanette Lauredan, who lives in a tent camp in the crowded Delmas district of Port-auPrince, stretching out her arms in concern. About 400,000 people remain in settlement camps that are mere clusters of shacks and tarps as a result of Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake. So far, Isaac itself had caused no reported injuries or deaths, but police in Puerto Rico said a 75-year-old woman died near the capital of San Juan on Wednesday when she fell off a balcony while filling a drum with water in preparation for the storm. Schools and government of-

fices remained closed Thursday on the U.S. territory, where Gov. Luis Fortuno said 7,800 people were without power and more than 3,000 had no water. With rain falling on and off throughout the day, the governor warned Puerto Ricans to stay away from beaches and swollen rivers. “It’s not the day to participate in recreational activities in these areas,” Fortuno said. Jose Alberto Melendez, 51, disregarded the advice and went to a beach near Old San Juan. “It’s my birthday,” he said. “I had already planned to come to the beach.”

The problem was, I never knew what had been done and what hadn’t. I took the daily lists and laminated them. I bought some inexpensive white-board markers and hung the list in the kitchen with the markers next to them. When you do a chore, cross it off. Now there is never a question on what has been done. — A Reader in Texas

Emma had church services at their place on Sunday, so the last two weeks have been extra busy ones. Today, washing laundry and canning tomato juice is on our list. I will share a recipe made for our breakfast recently. I like to try different recipes. This one is called country brunch skillet. I used peeled and cooked potatoes out of our own garden, but you can use frozen. COUNTRY BRUNCH SKILLET 6 strips of bacon 6 cups frozen hashed browns 3/4 cup chopped green peppers 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 6 eggs 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese In a large skillet over heat, cook medium bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, crumble and set aside. Drain, reserving two tablespoons of drippings. Add potatoes, peppers, onions, and salt to drippings. Cook and stir for two minutes. Cover and cook and drain occasionally until potatoes are brown and tender about 15 minutes. Make six wells in the hashed brown mixture, break one egg into each well. Cover and cook over low heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with bacon and cheese.

But he was still forced to ask taxpayers to approve a 0.5 percent tax increase earlier this month. It’s the same in city after city and community after community all across Ohio. Yet Gov. Kasich refuses to budge.

State surplus Even with a state surplus now predicted to exceed $550 million, he won’t restore any of the money he cut — and he won’t ask big corporations or the richest Ohioans to share in the sacrifice he’s asking of everyone else. In fact, the governor wants to use the surplus to pay for another income tax cut next year that will disproportionately benefit the wealthy. But Ohioans aren’t stupid. They know a shell game when they see one. And sooner or later, they’re going to hold the con men accountable.

‘Sin control’ outweighs ‘gun control’ To the editor: As I sat at home recently watching CNN news, the subject was gun control, after the unfortunate shooting in Colorado where a young man showed up at a theater with weapons, 6,000 rounds of ammunition, and began randomly shooting, killing 12 people and injuring many more. They were addressing a solution for gun control. It is really not about gun control; it is about sin control. If you ask 100 people if they believe in God, 80 percent would reply, “Yes.” Well, the big question is, what do you believe about God? The answer to gun control is not found in man’s opinion nor man’s law; it is found in God’s great plan of salvation. It has been written in Romans 10:9 — “If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved.” Once a person has accepted Jesus, then, and only then, will sin be controlled, for “sin has no dominion over you” (Romans 6:14). When you confess the Lord Jesus, you become his child and God said in 2 Chronicles 7:14 — “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” “Sin control” will always outweigh “gun control.” Douglas Leslie 721 Linden Ave.

95-year-old man gets JC diploma BY TERRY PELLMAN JACKSON CENTER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jackson Center resident William Oakley did not take the most direct route to receiving his high school diploma. Oakley recently received the high school diploma he never expected to see when he left school after the eighth grade and went to work on the family farm. That must seem hard for younger people to understand, but Oakley grew up in another era. He explains that formal education was not the priority at the time. When Oakley was in his youth, a boy his age could leave school as long as a work permit was obtained. In fact, the Jackson Center man is now 95 years old. Oakley simply seems younger than that. That may be partially attributable to his quick wit and ready sense of humor Family members arranged for Oakley to be recognized at the Jackson Center graduation ceremony. He was given a special seat of honor in the audience,

His own home did not have a telephone, so he called his sister who notified his wife. Family members tell that wife Daisy took off

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might find that it’s difficult for you to stick up for your rights today. (And this is not like you.) Just accept this and bide your time. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) If you disagree with partners and close friends today, you might feel confused or uncertain of exactly where you stand. Perhaps others confuse you? Don’t worry; this passes very quickly. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You will do whatever you can to help or benefit others, especially at work, today. You feel you want to be in a supportive role if possible. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Because you are in touch with your muse, this can be a very creative day for you. However, you might be confused when it comes to dealing with children. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Don’t be a doormat when dealing with family members today. You have rights, too. You don’t have to throw your weight around, but you don’t have to give in, either. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’re not sure when to be pushy and aggressive and when to pull your punches. It’s confusing. When in doubt, do nothing. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might be extravagant today if you’re out shopping or spending money. (Be mindful of this.) In business deals, however, don’t assert yourself. You’re not exactly sure what you want, are you? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) If you can use your energy to help others today, you will. Your idealistic tendencies are strong, and you want to do whatever is the greatest good for the greatest number. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be working behind the scenes rather secretly about something. (This is not really your style. You like to be open, direct and forthright.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You’re not sure whether to push an agenda with the group or just let matters be. It’s a hard call. You might be best served by letting things follow their own course. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Do not try to assert yourself in discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. For some reason, you can’t really get behind what you are saying. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be careful not to fall for snake-oil presentations about religion, politics or philosophical questions. You are ripe for deception. Don’t fall for any baloney. YOU BORN TODAY You have flare, style and amazing sexual energy! You can be surprisingly frank, because you don’t mind revealing your secrets. Your mind is active and intelligent, even though you approach life physically. You can be very charming when you choose. (Many of you have lots of love affairs.) In fact, your year ahead will focus strongly on a partnership or close friendship. Birthdate of: Joanne Whalley, actress; Sean Connery, actor; Rachel Bilson, actress.

Icing the painful area three times a day for 20 minutes relieves the inflammation that causes pain. Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (Aleve, Advil and the many others) can be used as needed. Tylenol is a good pain reliever. In instances when none of these works, a doctor can inject the painful area with a cortisone drug. It takes four or more weeks for this injury to heal. When you’re free of pain, start running, but do so at a modified distance. While you’re re-

Aug. 24, 1912 Startled by shots fired in rapid succession, the residents of Shelby Street and Miami Avenue near the railroad, rushed out this morning to find Mrs. Albert Haynes wounded by a bullet fired by her neighbor, Mrs. William Foulk. Not content with wounding Mrs. Haynes, the angered woman started firing on other neighbors until the automatic which she was using, was emptied. The shooting was apparently the direct result of trouble arising over the use of a joint cistern. Fortunately no one else was wounded. Mrs. Haynes was taken to the Piqua hospital this afternoon for further treatment. In an interview this afternoon, Mrs. Foulk said the bullet must have glanced off the pump and struck Mrs. Haynes, as she had no intention of shooting her. ––––– At the regular meeting of city council last night, an ordinance authorizing the purchase of a motor fire truck for Sidney was unanimously adopted as an measure. emergency The city solicitor was instructed to proceed immediately with the necessary legislation and the service and safety director with specifications.

Lady Jackets fall 6-3 to Beavercreek Sidney High’s girls soccer team saw its record drop to even on the year at 1-1 with a 6-3 loss to Beavercreek in action Wednesday at the high school. Beavercreek started the scoring just five minutes into the contest, but Sidney came back less than three minutes later when Konner Harris sent a through ball to Monique Hanayik, who finished for a 1-1 score. The two teams battled on even terms but a key point in the game came with 24:44 left, when Beavercreek scored a goal for a 2-1 lead. Then just 20 seconds later, the Lady Beavers struck again. “Giving up two goals in 20 seconds was very deflating for the girls,” said Sidney coach Stacey Goffena. “We were chasing the ball and not transitioning to offense. We were content just to play defense. Beavercreek added another goal to go up 4-1 at the half. “I told the girls at the half to stop playing to lose,” Goffena said. “We needed to battle back and play the way we knew we could. Beavercreek has a great team but we weren’t playing the way I knew we can.” She said her team took her advice to heart and played hard to start the second half. At the 32:05 mark, Tina Echemann dribbled through several Creek defenders and sent a ball to Morgan Knasel for a goal. “It gave us momentum because we kept the ball in our offensive end for the next 10 minutes. With 26:59 left, Harris took a corner kick and connected with Knasel to cut the lead down to just 4-3. But after opportunities for both teams, Creek scored again with 9:57 left on a penalty kick. Sidney goalie Lindsey Sturwold made a great save, but the ball bounced back to the Beavercreek player, who found the back of the net. The final goal came with just three minutes remaining. “The girls played such a great half, it’s just too bad we dug ourselves such a hole in the first half,” said Goffena. “But the girls got themselves back in the game and fought hard. Beavercreek also won the junior varsity game 4-0. Sidney is back in action at home Saturday against Springboro.

Jackets shock Davidson 1-0 HILLIARD — Sidney coach Eric Harlamert expressed his feelings with one sentence Thursday night after his Yellow Jacket boys soccer team stunned perennial power Hilliard Davidson 1-0. Lorenzo “Tuesday night we shockled Dayton, and tonight we shocked Columbus.” It really has been an outstanding start to the season for the Sidney boys. In their

first game, they tied Beavercreek on the road, 1-1, and Beavercreek was a team that played in the state semifinals last season. Then Thursday night, they made the long trip to Hilliard (Columbus suburb) worthwhile with their first victory ever over the Davidson squad. “This was huge,” Harlamert said. “We’d never beaten them, but our guys played together so well. Davidson is a mammoth school, about 3,000 kids, so this is a huge win for us.” Sidney was outshot 20-7 in

the game, but most of the Davidson shots were not on goal. Still, Sidney’s freshman goalkeeper Ben Snavley came up big, finishing with 12 saves. The lone goal of the game came near the midway point of the second half off a free kick. Jordan Parker played it in, and Dustin Lorenzo was there to finish it off for a 1-0 lead with 26:02 remaining in the game. The goal held up thanks to Snavley and the rest of the Jacket defense. “We had three opportunities in the first half and just

missed,” said Harlamert. “We could have been up 3-0 at the half. They had more shots, but I really think we had more quality shots. “We got a little lucky a couple times on their shots, but I’m not saying we were lucky because the kids earned this win,” Harlamert added. “They worked extremely hard and came away with a great win.” The Jackets will face another tough challenge on Tuesday in their next outing, squaring off against Wayne at the high school soccer complex.

CINCINNATI BENGALS wide receiver Armon Binns (85) just misses catching a touchdown pass against Green Bay Pack-

ers defensive back Jarrett Bush in the first half of a preseason game Thursday in Cincinnati.

Bengals fall 27-13 in preseason CINCINNATI (AP) — Aaron Rodgers ran everywhere, including the end zone. Twice. The MVP quarterback led Green Bay to a big first half Thursday night, running for 52 yards and two touchdowns during a 27-13 preseason victory that got the Packers’ offense moving at full speed. The Packers (No. 1 in the AP Pro32) wanted to look crisp coming off a drubbing by Cleveland. Rodgers led the way, going 12 of 22 for 154 yards with an interception while leading the Packers to 245 yards and a 17-6 halftime lead. He also scrambled six times, scoring on runs of 12 and 5 yards. “Obviously, you can’t let the quarterback run like we did,”

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “When that happens, it nullifies good coverage or a good initial rush, and it wipes out the other good plays you make.” Running back Cedric Benson made his Packers debut against his former team and ran six times for 38 yards. Benson led the Bengals (No. 14) in rushing each of the last four years, but they decided to let him leave as a free agent and signed BenJarvus GreenEllis. Benson signed with the Packers (1-2) on Aug. 14 and has been learning the play book. He got into a preseason game for the first time and gained 8 yards on a carry up the middle, receiving a mixed reaction from the crowd of 52,584.

The Bengals (2-1) played their starters into the third quarter but they couldn’t get a touchdown, failing even on a first-and-goal from the 1yard line. Andy Dalton played the entire first half and the opening series of the third quarter, going 5 of 17 for 40 yards and two sacks. He scrambled three times for 36 yards. Cincinnati settled for field goals of 42 and 30 yards by Mike Nugent, the second coming after the Bengals had a first-and-goal from the 1. Dalton had to throw away a pass under pressure, a run went nowhere, and Dalton was sacked by Erik Walden, forcing the Bengals to settle for the field goal. One of the Packers’ main concerns was how the offense

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State linebacker Storm Klein, kicked off the team when he was charged with domestic violence, has been reinstated by coach Urban Meyer after pleading guilty to a lesser Klein charge earlier this week. Klein, a senior who started 10 games last year, will not be allowed to play until at least the third game of the season. The No. 18 Buckeyes open Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio). Klein was involved in an altercation with the mother of his child in July. In a statement, Meyer said, “The charges that would have violated our core values have been totally dismissed.” He said he re-assessed the situation and allowed Klein AP Photo/Michael Perez back. Klein pleaded guilty to a CINCINNATI REDS' Zack Cozart (2) celebrates with teammate Miguel Cairo after scoring on misdemeanor disorderly con- a Todd Frazier ground ball in the first inning of a baseball game against the Philadelphia duct charge Tuesday.

did when Rodgers left the game. Backup Graham Harrell has struggled in the preseason, throwing two interceptions. He opened the second half and had a hand in another turnover. The Packers fumbled at their 15-yard line when Harrell and John Kuhn failed to have a clean handoff. No. 2 quarterback Bruce Gradkowski threw for a touchdown on the next play. Linebacker Jamari Lattimore returned an interception 27 yards for the Packers’ final score. Cincinnati sat five of its reserve cornerbacks because of injuries, including top draft pick Dre Kirkpatrick, who has missed all three preseason games while recovering from an injured left knee.

Reds cling to 3-2 lead PHILADELPHIA — The Cincinnati Reds were clinging to a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night in Philadelphia, trying for their third consecutive win over the Phillies after dropping the first game of the fourgame series. The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the first on a groundout by Todd Frazier that scored Zac Cozart. The Reds made it 3-0 with two more runs in the top of the sixth. Frazier smacked a two-run double, scoring Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick. But Reds starter Johnny Cueto couldn't hold the lead, allowing two runs in the sixth on a pair of sacrifice flies, one by former Red Lance Nix. Cueto was lifted in the sixth with nobody out. He allowed five hits while striking out four and walking three.


Sidney Daily News, Friday, August 24, 2012

Pirates hope to overcome lack of numbers in football DEGRAFF — It’s going to be lonely on the sidelines this season at Riverside High School football games. The Pirates head into the season opener on Friday night with only around 20 players ready to suit up for the first game at Ben Logan. Coach Johnny Graher knows that his players will have to be in shape, because he expects at least nine to have to go both ways. Riverside is coming off a 1-9 season in 2011 and there were quite a few players lost to graduation. But there are nine seniors on this squad and Graher will lean heavily on them. The top returnees are senior linebacker/running back Dallas Daniels and senior offensive and defensive lineman Jed Carter. Daniels was honor-

Tribe owner not ready to rebuild yet CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians have collapsed. Owner Paul Dolan isn’t ready to begin rebuilding them just yet. Perplexed as anyone by the Indians' stunning

losing streak, Dolan said Thursday night that he has no immediate plans to fire manager Manny Acta and that he's not considering an overhaul of Cleveland’s front office.

Dolan, appearing at a charity bowling event for Acta's foundation, said he has no plans to dismiss president Mark Shapiro, general manager Chris Antonetti or his manager.

“We all have a lot of work to do, but their jobs aren’t at stake with this,” Dolan said. Asked to clarify that he is not considering a managerial change, Dolan said, “No. I am not.”

Lehman netters post two victories Lehman won two tennis matches this week, beating Elida 4-1 and Piqua 5-0. Against Elida, Julia Harrelson won 6-1, 6-1 at first singles, Sarah Gravunder won 7-5, 6-2 at second singles, and Diana Gibson won 6-1, 76 at third singles.
