‘One small step’ First man on the moon, Neil Armstrong, dies CINCINNATI (AP) — Neil Armstrong made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon. He commanded the historic landing of the Apollo 11 spacecraft on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s scientific expeditions and becoming the first man to walk on the moon. His first words after the feat are etched in history books and the memories of the spellbound millions who heard them in a live broadcast. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” Armstrong said. He insisted later that he had said “a” before man, but said he, too, couldn’t hear it in the version that went to the world. Armstrong, who had bypass surgery earlier this AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite month, died Saturday at age 82 from what his family said PICTURES OF Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, are displayed on the main were complications of heart stage at the Republican National Convention inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum, Sunday in See ARMSTRONG/Page 4A Tampa, Fla.

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Tropical Storm Isaac barely stirred Florida Keys residents from their fabled nonchalance Sunday, while the Gulf Coast braced for the possibility that the sprawling storm will strengthen into a dangerous hurricane by the time it makes landfall there. It was on course to strike land on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a powerful storm that crippled New Orleans and the Gulf Coast and became a symbol of government ineptitude. Forecasters expected Isaac to pass the Keys late Sunday before turning northwest and striking as a Category 2 hurricane somewhere between New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday.

Superintendents wait for report cards BY TOM BARNETT School superintendents in Shelby County are anxiously awaiting the release of 2011-12 Local School District Report Cards which have been delayed until at least Sept. 10 by state board of education. The board agreed this week to postpone the release until questions

about accuracy of attendance data reported by districts are answered. The state board said areas of the state have had reporting problems. The delay means new performance index rankings for each district, charter school and STEM school will not be released until after the state board meets on Sept. 1011. The report card release had been

BY DAVID BAUDER The Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — By the yardstick of history, Neil Armstrong was among the most accomplished men ever to walk on the planet that he looked upon from afar one magical week in July 1969. Television news didn’t seem to fully recognize the importance of the first human to walk on the moon on the weekend he died. In the hours after Armstrong’s death was announced, news networks were airing canned programming — jailhouse documentaries, a rerun interview with

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Quotes about Neil Armstrong, the American who was the first human to walk on the moon, who died Saturday at age 82: • “For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.â€? — Armstrong’s family, announcing his death in a written statement. • “Neil was among the greatest of American heroes — not just of his time, but of all time. When he and his fellow crew members lifted off aboard Apollo 11 in 1969, they carried with them the

barrassing gaffe: a website headline that read: “Astronaut Neil Young, first man to walk on the moon, dies at age 82.� (NBC called it a staffer error and said the mistake was taken down after seven minutes.) His death came as somewhat of a surprise, too. Everyone dies, of course, and most news organizations have prepared material on hand to mark the passing of famous people. In many cases, though, there is advance word that someone is very ill, giving the media a chance to prepare and plan. Armstrong’s determined effort to live a quiet, private life after

aspirations of an entire nation. They set out to show the world that the American spirit can see beyond what seems unimaginable — that with enough drive and ingenuity, anything is possible. And when Neil stepped foot on the surface of the moon for the first time, he delivered a moment of human achievement that will never be forgotten.â€? — President Barack Obama • “Neil Armstrong was a very personal inspiration to all of us within the astronaut office. His historic step onto the Moon’s surface was the foundation for many of our personal dreams to become astronauts. The only thing that outshone his accomplishments was his humility about those accomplishments. We will miss him as a friend, mentor, explorer and ambassador for the American spirit of ingenuity.â€? — Bob

his astronaut days also left TV at a disadvantage. There was relatively little tape on hand to roll from interviews reminiscing about his experiences, reunions with old astronauts or public appearances. No Armstrong chats with David Letterman. No appearances in music videos. There was the moon walk, and not much else. Notable deaths often give viewers the chance to reflect, to put into perspective lives of great accomplishment or great notoriety. Not so with Neil Armstrong. His death was like his life: strangely muted given the magnitude of his achievements.

Behnken, chief of the NASA Astronaut Office. • “As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own. Besides being one of America’s greatest explorers, Neil carried himself with a grace and humility that was an example to us all. When President Kennedy challenged the nation to send a human to the moon, Neil Armstrong accepted without reservation. As we enter this next era of space exploration, we do so standing on the shoulders of Neil Armstrong.â€? — Charles Bolden, NASA administrator. • “He was the best, and I will miss him terribly.â€? — Michael Collins, who flew to the moon with Armstrong and served as the command module pilot.

The National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane warning for a large swath of the northern Gulf Coast from east of Morgan City, La. — which includes the New Orleans area — to Destin, Fla. A Category 2 hurricane has sustained winds of between 96 and 110 mph (154 to 177 kph). Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called a state of emergency and suggested that people begin leaving low-lying parts of the state. He also said he may skip a speaking engagement later this week at the Republican National Convention in Tampa unless the threat to his state subsides. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has also canceled his trip to the convention because of Isaac. Elected leaders’ vigilance toward tropical storms has heightened in the seven years since Katrina struck and became a symbol of government failure. More than 1,800 died, there were 53 levee breaches and the federal government was viewed as late and unprepared to handle the aftermath. Criticism was leveled at officials reaching all the

way to the White House. An emergency declaration was also issued in Mississippi by Gov. Phil Bryant amid concerns of storm surge threatening low-lying areas. Oil companies began evacuating workers from offshore oil rigs and cutting production in advance of Isaac. The storm was on a course to pass west of Tampa, but it had already disrupted the Republicans’ schedule there because of the likelihood of heavy rain and strong winds that extended more than 200 miles from its center. Even before reaching hurricane strength, Isaac caused considerable inconvenience, with more than 550 flights canceled at Miami International

Airport and about 150 from Fort Lauderdale’s airport. There were scattered power outages from Key West to Fort Lauderdale affecting more than 16,000 customers, and flooding occurred in low-lying areas. Gov. Rick Scott said at a news conference Sunday evening that only minor damage was reported from Isaac. Wind gusts of 60 mph were reported as far north as Pompano Beach, north of Fort Lauderdale. But while officials urged residents in southeast Florida to stay home, that recommendation was ignored by surfers and joggers on Miami Beach and shoppers at area malls.

Rielle Hunter, Mike Huckabee’s weekend show. Menacing satellite pictures of Tropical Storm Isaac had much more air time than Armstrong’s dusty hops on the lunar surface. Talk of the upcoming GOP national convention sucked up the air. A trio of factors played in to the lack of attention. First, Armstrong died in Cincinnati on a Saturday. Not just any Saturday, when news organizations have a skeletal staff, but a late August weekend. Half the country is at the beach.

Erma C. Wilt


KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The son of the founder of the powerful Haqqani network was been killed in an airstrike in Pakistan, Afghanistan’s intelligence agency said Sunday, providing the first public confirmation of rumors that have been swirling for days about the key member of a militant group the U.S. considers one of the most dangerous in the region. The Taliban rejected reports of Badruddin Haqqani’s death, however, saying that he was alive and well in Afghanistan. Haqqani’s death would be a serious blow to the organization founded by his father, Jalaluddin Haqqani. The group, which has ties to both the Taliban and al-Qaida, has been blamed for a series of high-profile attacks and kidnappings in Afghanistan, particularly in and around the capital city of Kabul, and poses perhaps the biggest threat to stability in the country. Shafiqullah Tahiri, the spokesman for Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security intelligence agency, said Haqqani was killed last week in an airstrike in Pakistan. He did not provide any further details, and would not say what information the agency’s operatives were basing their conclusion on.

The president was on hand to greet the astronauts after their splashdown in the Pacific. Armstrong, who was famous for being the first man on the moon, died Saturday. off aboard Apollo 11 in 1969, they carried with them the aspirations of an entire nation. They set out to show the world that the American spirit can see beyond what seems unimaginable — that with enough drive and ingenuity, anything is possible,� Obama said. Obama’s Republican opponent Mitt Romney echoed those sentiments, calling Armstrong an American hero whose passion for space, science and discovery will inspire him for the rest of his life. “With courage unmeasured and unbounded love for his country, he walked where man had never walked before. The moon will miss its first son of earth,� Romney said. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden recalled Armstrong’s grace and humility. “As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for

taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own,� Bolden said in a statement. Armstrong’s modesty and self-effacing manner never faded. When he appeared in Dayton in 2003 to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of powered flight, he bounded onto a stage before a packed baseball stadium. But he spoke for only a few seconds, did not mention the moon, and quickly ducked out of the spotlight. He later joined Glenn, by then a senator, to lay wreaths on the graves of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Glenn introduced Armstrong and noted that day was the 34th anniversary of his moonwalk. “Thank you, John. Thirty-four years?� Armstrong quipped, as if he hadn’t given it a thought. At another joint appearance, Glenn commented: “To this day, he’s the one person on earth

I’m truly, truly envious of.� Armstrong’s moonwalk capped a series of accomplishments that included piloting the X15 rocket plane and making the first space docking during the Gemini 8 mission, which included a successful emergency splashdown. In the years afterward, Armstrong retreated to the quiet of the classroom and his southwestern Ohio farm. In an Australian interview earlier this year, Armstrong acknowledged that “now and then I miss the excitement about being in the cockpit of an airplane and doing new things.� Glenn, who went through jungle training in Panama with Armstrong as part of the astronaut program, described him as “exceptionally brilliant� with technical matters but “rather retiring, doesn’t like to be thrust into the limelight much.�

School ready for new year after shooting CHARDON (AP) — The notes and cards that hung in the hallways of Chardon High School expressing support following the deadly shootings in its cafeteria have been taken down. Lockers that belonged to the three students killed last winter have been removed and given to their families. The new lockers in their place have a commemorative plaque, but won’t be assigned to students this year. The students and teachers at the school where three students died and three others were injured are starting to move forward with the beginning of a new school year. Andrew Principal Fetchik told The (Willoughby) News-Herald ( that he wants the school to get back into a routine even though it never will be the same. “The kids are still hurt and hurting. We want to be there for them,� he said. The school is getting a grant from the federal government to pay for a security guard and mental health screenings for students and staff. The money also will go toward paying for substitutes for teachers and staff who need time for counseling. The district has put new tables and fresh paint in the cafeteria. New classroom door locks have been installed too. “When I hear the whis-

tles blowing and band practicing it starts feeling like school again,� Fetchik said. The teenager charged in the shooting has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and felonious assault in the Feb. 27 shootings. Attorneys for 17-yearold T.J. Lane will have until the end of September to finish psychological evaluations and decide whether to change the teen’s not guilty plea. His attorneys are considering entering a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity instead. Lane attended an alternative school for students who haven’t done well in traditional schools. He was at Chardon waiting for a bus. Parents spent several weeks over the summer archiving the cards and notes that came from people across the world. Math teacher Mark Shafer said he missed the students over the summer. “We grew close to the kids last year so we can’t wait to see them again this year,� he said. “The community has become incredibly tight.� Plans are being developed to turn a courtyard into a healing garden. Donations will help pay for it. “We all have this sense of community that goes beyond words,� said language arts teacher Dawn Weaver.

procedures. His family didn’t say where he died; he had lived in suburban Cincinnati. He was “a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job,� his family said in a statement. moonwalk The marked America’s victory in the Cold War space race that began Oct. 4, 1957, with the launch of the Soviet Union’s Sputnik 1, a 184pound satellite that sent shock waves around the world. The accomplishment fulfilled a commitment President John F. Kennedy made for the nation to put a man on the moon before the end of 1960s. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. “The sights were simply magnificent, beyond any visual experience that I had ever been exposed to,� Armstrong once said. In those first few moments on the moon, Armstrong stopped in what he called “a tender moment� and left a patch to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in action. Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner and an astronaut, the modest Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program. “I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,� he said in 2000 in one of his rare public appearances. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.� Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley, who interviewed Armstrong for NASA’s oral history project, said Armstrong fit every requirement the space agency needed for the first man to walk on moon, especially because of his engineering skills and the way he handled celebrity by shunning it. “I think his genius was in his reclusiveness,� said Brinkley. “He was the ultimate hero in an era of corruptible men.� Fellow Ohioan and astronaut John Glenn, one of Armstrong’s closest friends, recalled Saturday how Armstrong was on low fuel when he finally brought the lunar module Eagle down on the Sea of Tranquility. “That showed a dedication to what he was doing that was admirable,� Glenn said. A man who kept away from cameras, Armstrong went public in 2010 with his concerns about President Barack Obama’s space policy that shifted attention away from a return to the moon and emphasized private companies developing spaceships. He testified before Congress, and in an email to The Associated Press, Armstrong said he had “substantial reservations.� Along with more than two dozen Apollo-era veterans, he signed a letter calling the plan a “misguided proposal that forces NASA out of human space operations for the foreseeable future.� Armstrong was among the greatest of American heroes, Obama said in a statement. “When he and his fellow crew members lifted

Almanac forecast: Wintry weather — and mystery

TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Aug. 27, the 240th day of 2012. There are 126 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 27, 1962, the United States launched the Mariner 2 space probe, which flew past Venus in December 1962. On this date: ■ In 1770, German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was born in Stuttgart. ■ In 1776, the Battle of Long Island began during the Revolutionary War as British troops attacked American forces, who ended up being forced to retreat two days later. ■ In 1859, Edwin L. Drake drilled the first successful oil well in the United States, at Titusville, Pa. ■ In 1883, the island volcano Krakatoa blew up; the resulting tidal waves in Indonesia’s Sunda Strait claimed some 36,000 lives in Java and Sumatra. ■ In 1908, Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th president of the United States, was born near Stonewall, Texas. ■ In 1928, the KelloggBriand Pact was signed in Paris, outlawing war and providing for the peaceful settlement of disputes. ■ In 1939, the first turbojet-powered aircraft, the Heinkel He 178, went on its first full-fledged test flight over Germany. ■ In 1942, the Times of London published an editorial calling on the British government to promote the production of penicillin, the first mention of the antibiotic by a newspaper. ■ In 1957, the USS Swordfish, the second Skate Class nuclear submarine, was launched from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine. ■ In 1967, Brian Epstein, manager of the Beatles, was found dead in his London flat from an overdose of sleeping pills; he was 32. ■ In 1979, British war hero Lord Louis Mountbatten and three other people, including his 14-year-old grandson Nicholas, were killed off the coast of Ireland in a boat explosion claimed by the Irish Republican Army. ■ In 1989, the first U.S. commercial satellite rocket was launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla. — a Delta booster carrying a British communications satellite, the Marcopolo 1.


Cow wins rampage BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A construction worker who tried to help police corral a runaway cow said the bovine charged at him “like a bull at a rodeo,” tossing him into the air before continuing its rampage through the streets of Montana’s largest city. The snorting, charging cow ran amok in downtown Billings on Tuesday for more than an hour and a half, terrifying pedestrians and knocking over a bicyclist until a police sniper fired a single shot through its heart. Morgan Logan of Acton suffered broken bones in his lower leg and had sore ribs after his encounter with the 1,200-pound black Angus cow after it escaped from the Public Auction Yards on Tuesday afternoon, The Billings Gazette reported. Logan, 52, said he was driving a gravel truck when he saw the police chasing the animal and decided to try to help.

IN THIS July 20, 1969, photo provided by NASA shows Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface. Apollo 11 astronauts trained on Earth to take individual photographs in succession in order to create a series of frames that could be assembled into panoramic images. This frame from Aldrin’s panorama of the Apollo 11 landing site is the only good picture of mission commander Neil Armstrong on the lunar surface. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969. He radioed back to Earth the historic news of “one giant leap for mankind.” Armstrong and fellow astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the moon, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. In all, 12 Americans walked on the moon from 1969 to 1972.

Armstrong — a humble hero who served his country BY COLLEEN LONG The Associated Press When Neil Armstrong walked on the moon all those years ago, he made his country believe that anything was possible with ingenuity and dedication — and in the process became one of America’s greatest heroes, his friends, colleagues and admirers said Saturday after news that the former astronaut had died. “When I think of Neil, I think of someone who for our country was dedicated enough to dare greatly,” said former astronaut John Glenn, who went through jungle training in Panama with Armstrong as part of the astronaut program and was a close friend. He said Armstrong showed exemplary skill and dedication. The idea of Armstrong as a humble pilot who served his country above all echoed around the country Saturday, by visitors to museums that fete his accomplishments and by his former NASA colleagues. Armstrong died Saturday at age 82 from complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, his family said. In California, visitors and staff at the Griffith Observatory paused for a moment of silence. At the Armstrong Air and Space Museum in Armstrong’s hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, a black ribbon hung over a plaque of Armstrong in the museum’s entryway and a U.S. flag was lowered in Armstrong’s memory. Tourist Jonathon Lack, a judge from Anchorage, Alaska, said he decided to visit the Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., after hearing of Armstrong’s death. “What really hit me is that he was in his 30s when he walked on the moon,” said Lack, who is 42. “That made me think about how little I’ve done.” He saw in Armstrong’s death a reminder of an America where people dreamed big things and sought to accomplish the inconceivable. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th-century’s scientific expeditions during the climax of a heated space race with the Soviet Union. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. Aldrin, who became the public face of the moon landing after shy Armstrong recoiled from the public eye, said his colleague’s leap changed the world forever and became a landmark moment in human history. “Whenever I look at the moon, it reminds me

of the moment over four decades ago when I realized that even though we were farther away from Earth than two humans had ever been, we were not alone,” he said. “Virtually the entire world took that memorable journey with us. I know I am joined by millions of others in mourning the passing of a true American hero and the best pilot I ever knew.” The third astronaut on the mission, Michael Collins, circled the moon in the mother ship 60 miles overhead while the other two went to the surface. “He was the best, and I will miss him terribly,” Collins said, according to NASA’s website. The Apollo 11 command module Columbia is on display at the Air and Space Museum, and visitors there Saturday gathered around it to remember Armstrong and his accomplishments. Bob Behnken, the chief of the NASA Astronaut Office, said Armstrong’s historic step was the reason many became astronauts. “Neil Armstrong was a very personal inspiration to all of us within the astronaut office,” he said. “The only thing that outshone his accomplishments was his humility about those accomplishments. “ Daniel Zhou, a student at Armstrong’s alma mater Purdue University in Indiana and a member of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space, said Saturday was sad day. “He will always be a source of inspiration for our generation, and for the generations to come, as we ask ourselves, ‘Why explore space?’” Zhou said. At New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, a 1960 photo of Armstrong hangs near the space shuttle Enterprise — showing a youthful NASA pilot standing and smiling next to the X-15 rocket plane he was testing. On Saturday afternoon, many among the hundreds of visitors filing past the mammoth white display didn’t know he had died. ‘I’m shocked!” said Dennis McKowan, 49, a computer network engineer from Sunnyvale, Calif., on a business trip to New York. “I used to skip school to watch the Apollo launches.” He was a child when he watched the moon landing. “How do you top that? No one has gone farther yet.” ——— Long reported from New York. Associated Press writers Verena Dobnik in New York, Seth Borenstein and Bradley Klapper in Washington, Marcia Dunn in Cape Canaveral, Fla., and Lisa Cornwell in Cincinnati contributed to this report.

Evidence mounts of new massacre in Syria BEIRUT (AP) — Row upon row of bloodied bodies wrapped in colorful blankets laid out on a mosque floor in a Damascus suburb. Long narrow graves tightly packed with dozens of victims. Nestled among them, two babies were wrapped in a single blood-soaked blanket, a yellow pacifier dangling beside them from a palm frond. Evidence mounted on Sunday of a new massacre in Syria’s deepening civil war, with activists reporting a killing spree by government forces after they seized the suburb of Daraya from rebel control three days ago. Reports of the death toll ranged from more than 300 to as many as 600. Video footage posted by activists showed lineups of corpses, many of them men

with gunshot wounds to their heads. During mass burials on Sunday, bodies were sprayed with water from hoses — a substitute for the ritual washing prescribed by Islam in the face of so many dead. The gruesome images appeared to expose the lengths to which the regime of authoritarian President Bashar Assad was willing to go to put down the rebellion that first broke out in March last year. In an ominous commentary, Assad was quoted by his official media as saying his regime would carry on fighting “whatever the price.” “It is clear that was collective punishment,” Khaled AlShami, an activist from Damascus, said of the killings in Daraya. “I am certain that the coming days will reveal

more massacres, but by then others will have taken place and people will forget about Daraya.” The video footage and death toll were impossible to independently verify because of severe restrictions on media coverage of the conflict. However activists and residents have reported excessive use of force by the regime, with indiscriminate bombing from the air and ground. “Daraya, a city of dignity, has paid a heavy price for demanding freedom,” the Local Coordination Committees activist group said in a statement, adding that the Assad regime targeted residents with executions and revenge killings “regardless of whether they were men, women or children.”

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — The weather world is full of high-profile meteorologists like NBC’s Al Roker and the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore. But the guy making the forecasts for the Farmers’ Almanac is more like the man behind the curtain. He’s cloaked in mystery. The publisher of the 196year-old almanac, which goes on sale this week, takes great pains to protect the identity of its reclusive weather soothsayer, who operates under the pseudonym Caleb Weatherbee. Caleb’s real name and hometown are a secret. And so is his age-old formula used for making long-term weather forecasts. The mystery man’s forecast for the coming winter suggests that people from the Great Lakes to northern New England should get out their long johns and dust off their snow shovels because it’s going to be cold and snowy. It’s also supposed to be wet and chilly in the Southeast, and milder for much of the rest of the nation. Even just to speak to the forecaster, the almanac would agree only to an unrecorded phone call with the man from an undisclosed location. “It’s part of the mystique, the almanac, the history,” said Editor Peter Geiger of the current prognosticator, the almanac’s seventh, who has been underground since starting the job in the 1980s. The weather formula created by almanac founder David Young in 1818 was based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles. Since then, historical patterns, weather data and a computer have been added to the mix. In an election season, the almanac dubbed its forecast “a nation divided” because there’s a dividing line where winter returns for much of the east, with milder weather west of the Great Lakes. Scientists generally don’t think too much of almanac’s formula. Ed O’Lenic, operations chief for NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, declined to knock the almanac’s methodology but said sun spots and moon phases aren’t used by modern-day meteorologists. “I’m sure these people have good intentions but I would say that the current state of the science is light years beyond what it was 200 years ago,” O’Lenic said from Maryland. In this year’s edition, the almanac’s editors are contrite about failing to forecast record warmth last winter but they suggested readers should go easy on the publication — and on Caleb — because nobody forecast 80-degree weather in March that brought the ski season a rapid end in northern New England. “Let’s face it — the weather was so wacky last year. It was so bizarre,” said Sandi Duncan, managing editor, pointing out that NOAA and Accuweather also missed the mark. Indeed, NOAA and Accuweather didn’t project the extent of the warm winter. “We missed it too, to put it bluntly,” said Tom Kines, a meteorologist at Accuweather in State College, Pa. “It was a weird winter last year.” The Maine-based Farmers’ Almanac is not to be confused with the New Hampshirebased Old Farmer’s Almanac. Both issue annual forecasts, with the Old Farmer’s Almanac scheduled for next month.

“We had a 99.0 performance index, just missing “excellent. “We’re proud of our students and staff who’ve worked together to complete the first year in a new building and continue our fiveyear record of improvement,” he said. “The district uses annual reports to look at where we might have issues and to begin to identify where professional development and other types of support may target issues.” Claypool also said final reports provide visual information, allowing schools to make plans for the coming year. “We’re very pleased with our students and staff,” he said. “We’re right on target.”

is the best time to make sure your child is on the right amount of medicine for their asthma, to fillout any forms required by the school and to create an asthma management plan as described in Step 4. Kids with asthma should visit their healthcare provider every three to six months, depending on how often your child is having symptoms. The Lung Association website provides helpful hints on how to talk to your healthcare provider and make your medical visits more satisfying. Step 4 — Develop an Asthma Action Plan An asthma action plan is a written worksheet created by your healthcare provider and tailored to your child’s needs. The plan includes a list of their asthma triggers and symptoms, the names of their medicines and how much medicine to take when needed. The plan also explains the steps to take to manage an asthma episode and a breathing emergency. An asthma action plan should always be on file in the school nurse’s office and easily accessible to anyone who may need to help your child use their inhaler. Step 5 — Get a Flu Shot On average, one out of five Americans suffers from influenza (flu) every year. Respiratory infections such as the flu are one of the most common asthma triggers. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone over the age of six months get a flu vaccination. The best way to protect your family from the flu is for everyone to get vaccinated. Learn more at The onset of a new school year also marks the beginning of the cold and flu season. Influenza poses a special health risk to children with asthma, as these children often experience more severe symptoms. The American Lung Association strongly recommends that all children-especially those with asthma-be immunized against influenza. “Flu epidemics typically start and spread in schools,” said Dr. Edelman. “We highly recommend that children with asthma get a flu shot as soon as it is available, as the flu can trigger a serious asthma attack.” According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), yearly flu vaccinations will begin in September, or as soon as the vaccine becomes available.

COLUMBUS — As summer comes to a close, families across the nation are preparing for the new school year. The school environment can sometimes be difficult for children with asthma.This back-toschool season, the American Lung Association highlights tips for families of children with asthma and stresses the importance of crafting a plan to properly manage asthma in a school environment. “Before shopping for back-to-school supplies, parents of students with asthma should first consider their child’s health for the time that they spend under the supervision of school personnel and in the school environment,” said Norman H. Edelman, M.D., chief medical officer of the American Lung Association. “They should work closely with their healthcare provider and school personnel before the school year begins to put a plan in place for good asthma control in the classroom.” Affecting an estimated seven million children under the age of 18256,035 in Ohio alone asthma is one of the most common chronic childhood disorders in the nation. It is also one of the primary illness-related reasons that students miss school, accounting for more than 14 million lost school days each year. Asthma is the thirdleading cause of hospitalization for children under 15. In 2009, nearly onethird of people with asthma experienced at least one episode, or attack-with children 36 percent more likely than adults to have an asthma episode. Asthma research and education programs are just some of the work being supported by the September 29 Fight For Air Run/Walk at Columbus’ Bicentennial Park. Visit to learn more and register. In addition to the steps below, encourage your child’s school, daycare and other community facility to offer their staff Asthma 1-2-3, a one hour in-service program designed to teach basic asthma knowledge to personnel in order to improve the lives of children who are living with asthma. Facilitator training for the program is being offered via webinar on Sept. 14. Visit for more information. In preparation for the school year ahead, the American Lung Association urges parents who have children with asthma to complete the following checklist:


Sidney Daily News, Monday, August 27, 2012


BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You have wonderful opportunities today to improve your health, your job or both. Do whatever you can, because it will have a long-term benefit for you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Love at first sight might take place, and existing partnerships might be rejuvenated today. Whatever happens will shift things for the better in the future. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You definitely can make improvements to where you live today. Look especially to areas related to garbage, recycling, laundry, bathrooms and plumbing. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) All your communication with others is unusually intense, direct and to the point today. Your words are like a hot knife cutting through butter. People will listen! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It’s entirely possible that you will see new ways to make money, or you might find a new job. Many of you also will see a new use for something you own. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Take a realistic look in the mirror today. What can you do to create a better image in your world? How can you improve your appearance? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) If you want to know the truth or the bottom line about something, today you might learn just that. Be

ready to dig deep, because secrets will be revealed to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might meet someone powerful in a group situation today. This person actually might inspire you or cause you to modify your goals for the future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your conversation with someone in authority can make a big difference in the lives of others today. The extent to which you can benefit others is the extent to which you personally will benefit as well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A teacher or guru-like figure may come into your life today. Almost surely, this person has something beneficial to offer. Possibly, you are the teacher to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Look for new approaches on how to handle debt, shared property and inheritances. It’s possible to put a new spin on things today that benefits everyone, including yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can improve your closest relationships today if you have an open mind to doing so. You might have to let something go, but perhaps it’s only dead weight. YOU BORN TODAY Neatness and order truly comfort you (not that you always achieve this). You lead such a busy life, you need the support of a workable system. You’re extremely emotional, which is why you compartmentalize your life, keeping your personal world distinct from your work. You’re resourceful in finding solutions to problems. In the year ahead, relationships and your social life will please you. Birthdate of Todd English, celebrity chef; Rebecca de Mornay, actress; Michael Jackson, singer.

WODC board learns about city projects The West Ohio Development Council Board of Trustees at its recent meeting got an update on the Sidney city budget and some city projects. According to minutes of the meeting, Sidney City Manager Mark Cundiff reported the city’s finances are better than budgeted. The revenue budget was for approximately $600,000; the actual is more around $200,000 to $300,000. Cundiff said the city is working on a five-year capital plan. Project requests are currently $8.5 million more than the money available. The city will be investigating more land to purchase for increased water sources, Cundiff said. Cundiff said the city is working with the EnviProtection ronmental Agency on renewal of a national pollutant discharge elimination system (NPDS) permit. There will be an Ohio EPA meeting in September to start negotiating. The city will be repairing the lime-sludge lagoon. The city will need to locate a temporary lagoon to use while the repairs are taking place. This is a high-cost item, Cundiff said. Cundiff addressed the board regarding the Interstate 75/Ohio 47 exchange beautification project. He reminded everyone that the materials used for the project were paid for with an Ohio Department of Transportation grant, while the installation costs were covered by a corporate donation. Other

than having a temporary worker keep it watered, as needed, there was no cost to the city for the project. He asked that if any board members hear complaints about the project that they explain to the complainants about how the work was funded. Reliable Castings bought the former Pub building and land and financed the demolition of the building, Cundiff said. Fill dirt is still being sought for this area, and Reliable will be locating its business entrance there. Landscaping and signage are also planned to complete the project, and the city is seeking contributions from business to fund those projects. ODOT will help maintain the new area by mowing it. The city will assist in this if the frequency needs to be more often. The long-term maintenance plan is still be determined. Cundiff recognized the community teamwork that was displayed in the Lehman Catholic High School soccer field situation. Lehman’s fields were damaged by a utility repair truck after an electrical storm caused power outages. Both the city and Sidney High School assisted Lehman in securing soccer fields to use until theirs is ready to play on. Cundiff stated that the cooperation of the community during this incident and during the Shelby County Fair was strong and proactive. He reminded everyone that this a strength of Sidney and Shelby County communities.

WODC Executive Director Mike Dodds reviewed the 2012 Leads Submitted report. He noted that Project Forward Link visited Sidney/Shelby County as a potential site. Dodds referenced his activity report and commented that things have been busy. Jesse Kent, Botkins village administrator, commented on the fact that Botkins is a “food-focused” community (such as fertilizer, Trupointe, Brown Industrial) and raised the concern of how the drought impact will affect the community next year (such as crop insurance and land cash rent). Dodds discussed the formation of the West Central Ohio Development Coalition (WCODC). This will be a partnership among eight counties and Dayton Development Coalition through JobsOhio. Allen County asked to join and contribute seed money because it preferred to work with WCODC instead of the Toledo region. The articles of incorporation have been approved by the state of Ohio. WCODC will form a 501(c6). WCODC will perform activities on behalf of DDC, which will reimburse money spent on related activities, such as marketing, retention/expansion, website development and registration costs related to seminars and trade shows. Officers for the organization were appointed. The home office for the organization will the WODC office/address.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, August 27, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Avoid squabbles with others, especially about shared property or debt. Especially avoid arguments with someone older or in authority (a landlord?). TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) In many respects, this is not an easy day for you. Things are tough when dealing with authority figures, as well as with friends and partners. Run away! Run away! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Avoid controversial subjects with coworkers today. (This includes politics, religion and racial issues.) People actually are looking for an excuse to get into a fight. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might be disappointed in your allotment or your fair share of something, especially if this has to do with sports, children and social occasions. These things happen. (It is what it is.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Put a lid on it when talking to everyone at home today, whether they are partners or family members. Tiny differences will escalate quickly into nasty arguments. (Who needs this?) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might not realize how strong you come off when talking to others today. You want to be right, and you want to get your own way. Hey — you can’t always do this. (Ya think?) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Avoid squabbles about money and possessions, because they won’t solve anything. Instead, you will get rankled and upset, and your peace of mind will be destroyed. Just let it go. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Arguments with parents and female relatives will go nowhere today. You only regret it. Remember: A closed mouth gathers no feet. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Someone might be working behind the scenes against your best interests. You might know this, but you cannot prove it. Just bide your time quietly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) In a class or group situation today, disagreements could break out, especially with a female. You need this like another hole in your head. Chill out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Because the Moon is in your sign today, you will be more emotional than usual. You will especially be tempted to rebel against authority figures. (How smart is that?) Not. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Something behind the scenes that you can’t mention might anger you today. Don’t worry about this, because many people feel the same way. Your best option is to be patient and let it pass. YOU BORN TODAY You are skilled with language. You know how to use words to convey all kinds of subtle meanings. Naturally, you’re articulate and convincing! But more than that, you can inspire and motivate others. Frequently, people come to you for advice. In the next year, a major change might take place, possibly something as significant as what occurred around 2003.

AKRON (AP) — Two snow leopard cubs now have names thanks to a public naming contest for the Ohio zoo residents. Akron Zoo spokesman David Barnhardt says the leopards have been named Sabu and Raj. Barnhardt says Sabu is the Tibetan word for snow leopard and Raj means king or ruler in India. He says there were 974 votes for Sabu and 920 for Raj out of

more than 3,800 votes cast. The leopards born May 14 are on exhibit for a short time daily until they get accustomed to their surroundings. Snow leopards are an endangered species.

Cards win to take series Reds still hold six-game lead in NL Central CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds are hoping for a strong finish to August after a difficult weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals, and help is on the way for the NL Central leaders. The Reds announced Sunday that All-Star first baseman Joey Votto will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday at Single-A Dayton, a bright silver lining on the same day they lost 8-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals. Matt Holliday had four hits and four RBIs as St. Louis handed the Reds their second series loss in 13 sets since the All-Star break. The Cardinals have won five of six to move within six games of the firstplace Reds, who are 8-6 in a grueling stretch of 17 games in 16 days that manager Dusty Baker called the toughest of the season. “This was a tough series,” Baker said. “This is a tough stretch for us. We knew it’d be tough.” Votto hasn’t played since July 15 after injuring his left knee sliding into third base on June 28 in San Francisco. The 2010 NL MVP started the All-Star game and is hitting .342 with 14 home runs and 49 RBIs. “I’m a little apprehensive because I haven’t played in a long time,” Votto said before Sunday’s loss. “The work on the field has been good. I have a long way to go on my swing. The things that I’m uncomfortable about will come out when I play in Dayton.” The Reds could have used Votto on Sunday against Adam Wainwright, who won his fifth consecutive start. Wainwright (13-10) allowed two runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings while improving to 60 with a 1.80 ERA in his last seven starts overall. The 6foot-7 right-hander, who

ST. LOUIS Cardinals' Jon Jay (19) bunts a ball foul while Cincinnati Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan watches in the third inning of a baseball game Sunday in Cincinnati. missed all of last season because of elbow surgery, hasn’t lost since July 18 at Milwaukee. “Wainwright threw the ball well,” Baker said. “There’s not much else to say, except they beat us.” Reds right-hander Homer Bailey (10-9) gave up five runs in six innings while falling to 1-3 with a 6.04 ERA in five August starts. He also allowed a season-high nine hits for the sixth time. The Cardinals strung together four consecutive ground-ball singles during a five-hit third inning that plated three runs. Skip Schumaker led off with a double to right-center, and Wainwright chipped in with a one-out single into left field. Schumaker scored on Jon Jay’s base hit up the middle and Matt Carpenter singled to load the bases for Matt Holliday’s tworun single to left.

“That’s the way it goes,” Bailey said. “I can hold my head up high. I was trying to get them to hit ground balls and get some double plays and keep the ball in the yard. It wasn’t like I was all over the place. I didn’t have any walks. You’ve just got to tip your cap to them.” St. Louis added two more runs in the sixth to make it 50. Holliday hit a leadoff triple before Craig drove a 1-2 pitch over the wall in left for his 20th homer. Chris Heisey and Ryan Ludwick had RBI singles in the sixth for Cincinnati, which beat the Cardinals 8-2 on Saturday. Holliday doubled in a run in the seventh and singled in Carpenter in the ninth. “It’s a situation where they came in swinging the bats,” Baker said of St. Louis, which finished with 42 hits in the series. “We couldn’t put them

away.” The Reds open a threegame series at Arizona on Monday night. They are off Thursday before closing out the trip with three at lastplace Houston. “We’ve got to push and push the next three days,” Baker said. “These are the dog days. We’ve got to finish strong in August.” NOTES: Votto has undergone two minor surgical procedures related to a torn meniscus in his knee. The Reds are 27-14 since Votto left the lineup. ... RHP Nick Masset was awaiting the results of an MRI on his right shoulder after soreness returned following his rehab appearance with Triple-A Louisville on Aug. 21. Masset has been on the disabled list since spring training. ... The Reds and Cardinals meet one more time this season, in the final series Oct. 1-3 in St. Louis.

toss. The home team will get the first possession in the overtime followed by the Yellow Jackets. When we get the ball in the extra stanza, we’ll know what is needed. We’re finally in the proverbial “driver’s seat,” especially with a superior kicker who had booted a 47-yarder in an intrasquad scrimmage. Here we go. This game will have a winner and it will happen quickly. St. Marys comes away empty and is denied even a field goal try by a fumble. Sidney takes over at the 20 and needs only a field goal to win. The Jackets move to the 13yard line in the middle of the field, a great place for our kicker to seal the deal on a fourth down 30-yard attempt. The snap is solid, the hold is good, and so is the kick. We win!!! No, not quite yet. St. Marys is awarded a timeout and we’ll have to do it all again. The kicking unit remains calm while the Sidney contingent is anything but. This is it. The process is repeated with the same result. This time we do win. One-hundred-plus band members erupt with another rendition of the fight song. High fives and hugs are everywhere on the visitors side amid more cheering and clapping. The visiting crowd is buzzing. Jubilant team members come to the front of the bleachers behind the Sidney bench to greet our supportive throng. Several minutes elapse before Sidney players

and coaches finally exit the field toward a distant makeshift lockerroom. The band files out with much bounce in its collective marching step. A few Sidney partisans remain and are in no hurry to leave. This is a moment to savor. My final high five is with longtime Sidney High School teacher and coach Mary Jannides, who founded the “Block S” girls cheer group back in 1960 when the high school moved to Campbell Road. Memories abound and new ones are added on this night. The streak is over. Bring on Bellefontaine. Sidney football now also holds another distinction: our last three wins have all been in overtime, including the two that ended the 2009 season. What a way to start a football season, and what a way to start a school year. The long awaited victory is huge for our team. Competitive sports have great value but they’re more fun when you win. Our fight song begins with “Sidney High, Sidney High, Never Let that Spirit Die.” On this night our spirit is alive and well. I will always remember Friday evening August 24, 2012. Our young men did us proud and we all shared in the excitement. This one was special for all of Yellow Jacket Nation. —— Dave Ross is the historian of SHS football and is a regular contributor to the Sidney Daily News.

But still, as an amateur winning one of the biggest amateur events, I feel like it was a better win — even though this one was awesome.” Ko finished at 13under 275 at The Vancouver Golf Club, pulling away with birdies on five of the first six holes on the back nine. She opened with consecutive 68s and shot a 72 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead into the final round. Inbee Park shot a 69 to finish second. Park chipped in for birdie on the final hole, and Ko closed with a bogey to make it closer. “The pressure she was handling is really amazing,” Park said. “I’m really happy for her.

COQUITLAM, British Columbia (AP) — Lydia Ko won the Canadian Women’s Open on Sunday to become the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history and only the fifth amateur champion. The 15-year-old South Korean-born New Zealander closed with a 5-under 67 for a three-stroke victory. She broke the age record of 16 set by Lexi Thompson last September in the Navistar LPGA Classic in Alabama, and is the first amateur winner since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdine’s Invitational. “To break another record, or being in the history, it’s amazing, and it’s always awesome to be able to play with the pros,” Ko said. In January, Ko won the New South Wales Open in Australia at 14 to become the youngest player to win a professional tour event, a mark broken by 14-year-old Brooke Henderson in June in a 36-hole Canadian Women’s Tour event in Quebec. Ko also won

Bumping, banging back at Bristol BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — With a two-handed toss of his helmet, Tony Stewart brought back everything that had been missing at Bristol Motor Speedway. It was the rock ‘em, sock ‘em style of racing that made the Tennessee bullring the toughest ticket in NASCAR, and fans fill the place for 55 consecutive races hoping to see bumping and banging on the track and the off-track drama it created. Progressive banking added in 2007 diluted the action, and fans turned their backs on Bristol in droves. Yet another disappointing crowd in March was the final straw for track owner Bruton Smith, who ordered changes to the track surface in the hopes the action would pick up and the fans would return. He got exactly what

he wanted Saturday night, even if his idea didn’t go exactly according to plan. Tempers flared again at Bristol ‚Äî the boiling point coming when Stewart heaved his helmet at Matt Kenseth’s car after the two wrecked racing for the lead — and the action on track picked up enough to satisfy most fans. Five-time Bristol winner Jeff Gordon, who watched some of Bristol’s greatest races from the spotter stand before he began his Cup career, thought Saturday night looked a lot like old Bristol. “Even though it was really tough to pass, it just reminded me of old school Bristol,” Gordon said. “I think it was a success and I certainly had a lot of fun. I say they grind the whole place. Sounds awesome. I hope they do that next time.”

Believing the progressive banking had created too many lanes for drivers to use, Smith ordered the top groove to be ground down at Bristol. His desired effect was a tighter track that forced drivers to run around the bottom and use their bumpers to move cars out of their way. They had to use their bumpers, but it was at the top of the track where the action occurred. The new top groove picked up rubber as the race progressed, and the grip in the high line was too attractive for drivers to ignore. Denny Hamlin, who picked up his first Bristol victory, thought the racing was similar to years past. “We were all running in a line and just waiting on the next guy to screw up to get around,” he said. “That’s what you had with the old Bristol.

That’s how we had to race. I don’t think we saw as much side-byside racing, but you didn’t see side-by-side racing with the old Bristol. You just saw a bunch of cars in line waiting on someone to get knocked out of the way or mess up and that’s the same thing we had.” With it came the return of a vintage Stewart reaction following his accident with Kenseth. The three-time series champion had rallied from a lap down to run for the lead with Kenseth, but after the two came close to wrecking for at least an entire lap, they finally collided for reasons neither agreed upon. Stewart showed his displeasure by tossing his helmet at Kenseth’s car, and promising a rocky ride the rest of the season. “I’m going to run over him every chance I’ve got from now ‘til the end

of the year, every chance I’ve got,” Stewart said. That’s the kind of responses fans expect at Bristol, where Dale Jarrett in 1993 threw his helmet at Bobby Hillin Jr.’s car. Ward Burton once threw his heel guards at Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson made an obscene gesture, Gordon shoved Kenseth, and Kevin Harvick charged after Greg Biffle. On Saturday night, even Danica Patrick got into the action, angrily wagging her finger at Regan Smith after contact from him caused a raceending wreck after she’d worked her way to 19th. “We were just racing hard, this is Bristol, this is why people love this track because you see a lot of that, you see tempers flare,” Patrick said. It was the perfect kickoff for the final push to set the Chase for the

Sprint Cup championship field. Hamlin’s win was his third of the season, and it created a four-way tie for most wins in the series. Should nothing give over the next two races between Hamlin, Johnson, Stewart and Brad Keselowski, there’d be a logjam for the top seed in the 10-race Chase. And the race is still on for the final two wild card spots. A wreck with Juan Pablo Montoya was devastating for Ryan Newman, who slipped out of contention for one of the two wild card berths. Headed into next Sunday’s race at Atlanta, Kasey Kahne is still holding steady for one of the spots. Kyle Busch moved into position for the second one, and he leads Gordon by 16 points. Newman fell to fourth in the wild card standings, 19 points behind Busch.

Lady Cavs stay unbeaten SPORTS BRIEFS T.O. released by Seahawks with 2-1 win over Celina CELINA — Lehman girls soccer coach Tony Schroeder says he remembers saying on occasion that his team “dominated but didn’t win.” We l l , Frantz after Satgame with urday’s Celina, he felt forced to say just the opposite. “We didn’t dominate but still won the game,” he said of Lehman’s 2-1 win over Celina. “It’s great to be on that end of it. They were probably pretty disappointed, like I would be.” Schroeder said the Lady Cavs went away from their ball-control game plan in the first half, and felt fortunate to be deadlocked at 0-0. That tie was broken in the second half with 29 minutes left when Sarah Titterington’s corner kick bent its way into the goal without being touched. “She really put a nice spin on it,” said Schroeder. Celina came back to score with 20 minutes remaining, but with 11 minutes left, Jordi Emrick headed in a corner kick for what proved to be the winning score. “Celina controlled the first half,” said Schroeder. “It seemed like we were real tense and had it not been for Grace Frantz (goalie), it would have been tough. She had nine saves in the first half. “We got the girls calmed down at halftime and we played much better in the second half,” he added. He said Frantz was definitely the player of the game. She finished with 15 saves, and that tied a single-game school record. The Lady Cavs, now 2-0, are back in action tonight, taking on Graham at Sidney High. Celina falls to 1-2.

Lady Rockets tie ANNA — The Anna Lady Rockets and Preble Shawnee battled to a 2-2 tie in girls soccer action here Saturday. The Lady Rockets are now 1-0-1 on the season.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Terrell Owens’ NFL return lasted less than three weeks. Owens was released by the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, part of the league-mandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players. The 38-year-old posted a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. PDT that he had been released and the Seahawks made the move official later in the afternoon. “I’m no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I’m truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.” Owens signed a one-year deal with Seattle (No. 22 in APPro32) on Aug. 7, following a sterling workout that had coaches and Seahawks staff raving about how good he looked for having not played an NFL game in more than 18 months.

Watney wins The Barclays FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Even after a year that didn't come close to his expectations, Nick Watney wasn't about to give up on his season. Amazing how one week changed his outlook in so many ways. He beat one of the strongest fields of the year at The Barclays, on the tough track of Bethpage Black. Winning the opening playoff event for the FedEx Cup guarantees him a good shot at the $10 million prize. And suddenly, playing in the Ryder Cup becomes a lot more realistic. That all came into play Sunday when Watney didn't miss a green until the 16th hole, turned a two-shot deficit against Sergio Garcia into a threeshot lead, overcame a trio of three-putt bogeys with clutch birdies, and closed with a 2-under 69 for a three-shot victory.

LEHMAN’S JENNA Kronenberger duels with a Celina player for control of the ball in girls soccer action Saturday at Celina. Lehman won 2-1 to go to 2-0 on the season. Anna trailed at the half 1-0, but tied the game up on a goal by Erica Huber with 36:24 remaining in the game. The assist came from Emily Cavinder. Preble Shawnee retook the lead 10 minutes later, and it stayed that way until just 6:49 remained when Huber scored again on a penalty kick. “It was two evenlymatched teams,” said Anna coach Jim Hague. “I thought they won the first half and we the second. We had several opportunities to score the go-ahead goal in the last five minutes, but couldn’t get the shots to go.” Anna had 22 shots on goal to 21 for Preble

“Miami Valley had one Shawnee.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Arms outstretched in the air with a smile from ear-to-ear, Noriatsu Osaka couldn’t contain his glee. Neither could his teammates from Tokyo after Osaka's third home run of the game put an exclamation point on Japan’s 12-2 victory over Tennessee in five innings in the Little League World Series title game Sunday. The 12-year-old Osaka added a triple for good measure, too, to top off his 4-for-4 afternoon. In a symbolic gesture, Japan’s players jogged the traditional postgame victory lap carrying the flags for both their home country and the United States. “We had such a great time in Pennsylvania and we really played a good game today. It was kind of a, ‘Thanks,’” Osaka said through an interpreter. Starter Kotaro Kiyomiya struck out eight in four innings and added an RBI single for Japan. The game ended in the fifth after Osaka's third homer made it a 10-run game.

Raiders pleased with Pryor ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Terrelle Pryor is still far from being a polished quarterback for the Oakland Raiders and isn't likely to move up the depth chart any time soon. His footwork needs improvement and he's still trying to get comfortable staying in the pocket instead of taking off on a run as he did many times in college. Pryor is making progress, though. He put up 227 yards of offense and threw a pair of touchdown passes in second half of the Raiders' 31-20 preseason win over Detroit in what was easily the highlight of his young NFL career. More than the numbers, Raiders coach Dennis Allen was impressed with Pryor's command of the huddle and his communication. Those were two issues the third-string quarterback struggled with in training camp.

Colts get Davis in trade SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Briscoe got past Penske teammate Will Power out of a pit stop Sunday and held off the two-time defending Sonoma champion for his first IndyCar victory since 2010. After Power led for most of the race, Briscoe slipped into position for his seventh career victory when Power got caught in traffic following a scary crash for Sebastien Bourdais and Josef Newgarden. Both drivers apparently avoided serious injury when Bourdais lost

control on cold tires and slammed Newgarden into a protective barrier. Newgarden injured his left index finger. Power also lost a few seconds of his lead on a slow pit stop before the crash, but said he blamed the loss on getting held up by drivers who were “dawdling around because they were a lap down or whatever.” He barely failed to win his third straight race in Sonoma after starting from the pole at the track where he broke his back in 2009, yet

Power also left Sonoma in command of the championship race. His second-place finish boosted his overall points lead to 36 points after his three closest competitors all had problems. Ryan Hunter-Reay was left fuming after Alex Tagliani spun him out with 10 laps to go, and he finished 18th. Helio Castroneves was penalized after making contact with Scott Dixon on the opening lap and never got back in the hunt, eventually finishing sixth, while Dixon came in 13th after making contact with

Hunter-Reay. Penske still put its three racers in the top six after Power, Briscoe and Castroneves swept the podium in Sonoma last year. Briscoe stalled his car during the celebratory burnout, but otherwise enjoyed a splendid afternoon after starting second. Briscoe has never finished outside the top four at Sonoma. Three-time defending champion Dario Franchitti finished third, and Rubens Barrichello finished a career-best fourth.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis' bruised defense finally got some help Sunday. Four days after team owner Jim Irsay ignited speculation about a possible trade with a series of Twitter posts, the Colts acquired former firstround draft pick Vontae Davis to solidify their secondary. Miami will get Indy's second-round pick and a conditional, undisclosed late-round pick in the 2013 draft — a steep price for a veteran cornerback who recently lost his starting job, but one the Colts found reasonable. "I think if Vontae were coming out in the 2013 draft, there's no way he'd be there. A guy of this caliber and with this talent level and skill set, he wouldn't be there in the second (round)," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "You don't find guys like this in the second." The addition of Davis came hours after the Colts took another big defensive hit when an MRI confirmed defensive tackle Brandon McKinney injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Pagano said McKinney would likely go on injured reserve soon, ending his season. 2311758

Word of the Week insult — to treat or speak to insolently or with contemptuous rudeness

Newspaper Knowledge The word "bully" used to mean the total opposite of what it means now? Five-hundred years ago, it meant friend, family member, or sweetheart. The root of the word comes from the Dutch boel, meaning lover or brother. Big change!

Important If the bullying is physical or violent, you can ask the adult to whom you speak NOT to reveal your name. Do NOT keep it inside. Do NOT plan revenge against the bully or take matters into your own hands.

Welcome back to school! Bully. What does the word make you think of? For some people, it's that girl at school who always makes fun of them. For others, it's the biggest guy in the neighborhood who's always trying to beat them up or take their things. Sometimes "bully" means a whole group of kids, ganging up on someone else. No matter what situation or form it comes in, bullying can make you feel depressed, hurt, and alone. It can keep you from enjoying the activities and places that are part of your life. Bullying happens

everywhere, whether it's your town or Paris, France. It happens all the time, and it's happened since forever. Because it's so common, many adults think bullying is just a normal part of growing up. You've probably heard parents or teachers say things like: "Don't let it get to you" or "You just have to be tougher." But why should something that can make a person so miserable have to be part of growing up? The answer is, it doesn't! Each and every one of us has the right to feel safe in our lives and good about

Prevent Bullying • Don't walk alone. Travel with at least one other person whenever you can. • Avoid places where bullying happens. Take a different route to and from school. Leave a little earlier or later to avoid the bully. • Sit near the bus driver on the school bus or walk with a teacher to classes. • Don't bring expensive things or money to school. • Label your belongings with permanent marker in case they get stolen. • Avoid unsupervised areas of the school and situations where you are by yourself. Make sure you're not alone in the locker room or bathroom. • Act confident. Hold your head up, stand up straight, and make eye contact. • Brainstorm bully comebacks ahead of time, and practice them in the mirror. That way you'll have them ready when you need them!

ourselves. Use the following information to learn all the basics of dealing with bullies. Let's start by looking at the different kinds of bullying: Physical bullying means: • Hitting, kicking, or pushing someone...or even just threatening to do it • Stealing, hiding or ruining someone's things • Making someone do things he or she doesn't want to do Verbal bullying means: • Name calling • Teasing • Insulting Relationship bullying means: • Refusing to talk to someone • Spreading lies or rumors about someone • Making someone do things he or she doesn't want to do

What do all these things have in common? They're examples of ways one person can make another person feel hurt, afraid, or uncomfortable. When these are done to someone more than once, and usually over and over again for a long period of time, that's bullying. The reason why one kid would want to bully another kid is this: when you make someone feel bad, you gain power over him or her. Power makes people feel like they're better than another person, and then that makes them feel really good about themselves. Power also makes you stand out from the crowd. It's a way to get attention from other kids, and even from adults. Let’s start this 2012-13 school year right. Let’s be kind to one another and don’t bully.

re you ready to ski the Swiss Alps? Relax in a Venetian gondola? Ride in a double-decker bus? See the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the marvelous paintings of the Louvre? Run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain? Listen to bagpipes in Scotland? If you haven’t guessed yet, we’re in Europe, sixth of the seven continents in size and population but among the most influential historically. Despite its relatively small size, Europe has been the birthplace of many world social movements, political movements, and economic systems. It stretches from Portugal in the west to Russia’s

Ural Mountains in the east, to the fjords of Norway in the north, and south to Cape Tarifa, Spain. The ethnic diversity of Europe is reflected in the large number of small countries and other political units. That number increased even more with the collapse of the Eastern European Communist regimes, particularly the Soviet Union: The Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus became independent countries, Czechoslovakia divided into Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and several small countries have struggled to form from what was Yugoslavia. There are 43 countries in Europe, plus part of Russia, part of Turkey, and

several dependent territories. Many languages are spoken in Europe, including English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. Celtic is spoken in Brittany in France and in western parts of Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. Slavic languages such as Russian, Polish, and Serbo-Croatian are spoken in eastern Europe. Thanks to westerly winds that sweep across the relatively warm waters of the North Atlantic Drift and carry warmed air across the continent, Europe’s climate is milder than that of areas of the United States at the same latitudes.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.
