Council to seek ODOT, FAA grant funding BY TOM BARNETT tbarnett@sdnccg,com Sidney City Council Monday night adopted separate resolutions authorizing submission of grant proposals to the Ohio Department of Transportation for public transit operations and the Federal Aviation Administration for municipal airport improvements. Available ODOT funds include a $321,219 federal operating grant, $41,302 state

operating grant and $47,160 in federal capitalized maintenance grant funding. The grants last year funded 60 percent of Shelby Public Transit operations. The FFA grant would fund the final design of the shift, extension and rehabilitation of runway 10/28 as well as acquisition of three adjacent properties and construction of a new septic system in the airport terminal area. Also by resolution, council agreed to enter into an exten-

sion of Sidney’s electric generation agreement with Dayton Power & Light Energy Resources. The current agreement has a fixed rate of $0.0595 per kilowatt hour. By the conclusion of the 21-month term of the agreement, participating cities will collectively save more than $2.2 million. A final resolution adopted Monday authorizes an agreement with David Caldwell, a Miami County prosecuting attorney, to serve as a substitute See FUNDING/Page 3A

Accidents Police cited Dion L. Wells, 16, 702 Foraker Ave., for following too closely after her vehicle collided with a pickup truck operated by William L. Myers, 68, 16377 County Road 25A, Anna at 1 a.m. Monday on Highland Avenue. There was functional damage to her car and minor damage to Myers’ truck. • A hit-skip driver fled the scene shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday after causing a series of chain re-action crashes on Park Street in which three other vehicles were damaged. Police said the incident began as the unknown driver left the roadway, striking a sign at 1502 Park, then struck a parked trailer owned by William Schellenberg, pushing it into two vehicles ahead before leaving the area. The two initially-impacted vehicles received functional damage. The other vehicles involved are also owned by Schellenberg. Based on evidence found at the scene, police linked the crash to a copper colored GMC vehicle they were unable to locate. • Vehicles driven by Rebecca A. Thornton, 18, 18450 Johnston Road, and Megan Seybold, 25 of St. Paris, were involved in a traffic accident at 7 p.m. Friday on Michigan Street at Sixth Avenue. Police said both vehicles were westbound on Michigan when Seybold slowed to allow another vehicle to turn into a parking lot and was struck by Thornton’s auto. There was nonfunctional damage to both vehicles and Thornton was cited for following too closely. • Police cited Victoria C. Varno, 18, 217 Lane

St., for following too closely following a crash shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Michigan Street at Folkerth Avenue Thursday. Officers said Varno’s vehicle struck the rear of a van driven by Darlene K. Hollar, 60, of Elida, that had stopped for a traffic light. Police said the younger woman left the scene of the crash, but was later located and cited. There was minor damage to both vehicles.

Suspect’s beard might bias jury FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Army psychiatrist charged in the Fort Hood shooting rampage should be forced to shave his beard to avoid any potential jury bias in his pending murder trial, say some military experts and the judge overseeing his pending court-martial. Maj. Nidal Hasan has grown the beard in violation of Army policy and says he wants to keep it for religious reasons. If he’s not forced to shave and is subsequently convicted in the 2009 attack on the Texas Army post, the

issue could also become grounds for an appeal. Military trials are very formal and the juries expect all regulations to be followed, down to the smallest detail, some legal experts said. “I’ve seen a judge send a soldier out of the courtroom because his uniform wasn’t right — his medals weren’t in order or his tie wasn’t tied right,” said Ret. Army Maj. Gen. John Altenburg, a former deputy judge advocate general who now is an attorney in private practice.

Sheriff issues warning about painters The Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office is cautioning residents travelers have been going door-to-door in the community offering to paint barns and out buildings. Sheriff John Lenhart describes the solicitors as two white males driving a white pickup truck with South Carolina license plates. “At this time,” he said, “we do not believe those individuals are dangerous.”

The sheriff reminds county residents that when dealing with outof-town contractors they may face extreme difficulties trying to resolve issues of workmanship and warranty repair. He encourages using local contractors, also checking references before having any work done. Local residents may call the sheriff ’s office at 498- 1111 and speak to a deputy if they have questions or concerns.

FUNDING Municipal Court prosecuting attorney at the previously established rate of $55 per hour. Council also adopted ordinances making supplemental appropriations for the year, designating alternate council meeting sites and amending its own rules of operation. The appropriations increases ordinance 2012 budget year expenditures by transferring $311,515 within the general fund. Total budget year appropriations are not changed. Designated alternate council meeting sites, in the event of the unavailability of the municipal building, include the police department’s emergency operations center, the Shelby Transit building on Vandemark Road and Dorothy Love Retirement Community on Cisco Road. The council rules ordinance assures compliance with revised state law for executive sessions, clarifies the intent of emergency meetings and abstention by members, also correcting typographical errors in the current document.` Following Monday night’s legislative session, Community Services Director Barbnara Dulworth led a discussion of the city’s Brownfield assessment of the former Wagner Manufacturing property at 440 Fair Road. The city, with the assistance of Soil and Material Engineers, an environmental consultant, has been awarded an $185,000 Environmental Protection Agency Brownfield grant and a $201,096

From Page 1

Ohio Department of Development Clean Ohio grant to complete assessments of the site. Dulworth said three minor areas of soil contamination have been identified on the property — an interior courtyard where transformers leaked PCBs into soil, an east side area contaminated with metals and a potential soil vapor issues. She also said the consultant is exploring grant options for demolition and remediation of the site. City staff and SME have also spoken with demolition/salvage contractors and developers to explore “outside the box” solutions that could possibly demolish the buildings with minimal or no grant funds and little expenditure of city general funds. Randy Magoto, the city’s surveyor, updated council on a current traffic study, emphasizing extensive improvements currently in the design phase for Michigan Street (Ohio 47). They include right turn only designations for Walmart Shopping Center and several other businesses, widening of the roadway from Fifth Avenue to Walnut Avenue and replacing present metal guard rails with a concrete wall. The meeting also included a discussion of proposed financial policies led by Finance Officer Ginger Adams. Proposed changes would lower the minimum fund balance requirement for the Solid Waste Fund and make revisions in the city’s Separation Payment Fund.

Religious beliefs at center of Amish trial BY JOHN SEEWER The Associated Press

BOOT PRINTS from from Neil Armstrong’s famous walk on the moon are embedded into the ground as members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity pay tribute to him during a memorial service in front of the Neil A. Armstrong Hall of Engineering at Purdue in West Lafayette, on Monday. Armstrong was a member of the fraternity while at Purdue. in West Lafayette, Ind., Monday. Armstrong, a 1955 graduate of Purdue, died Saturday at the age of 82.


dedicate a veterans memorial in Mason, Ohio, but asked that his participation not be announced in advance. The crowd quickly rose in standing ovation when Armstrong was introduced, Portman recalled. The Museum of Natural History & Science of the Cincinnati Museum Center has an exhibit that includes a moon rock and replicas of Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit and tools used on the moon. It is offering free admission through Labor Day to honor Armstrong, and more than 2,000 people visited Sunday. Armstrong, who commanded the Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20, 1969, was born in Wapakoneta, in western Ohio. He is celebrated there at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. The Armstrong family released another statement Monday evening saying that “the outpouring of condolences and kind wishes from around the world overwhelms us and we appreciate it more than words can express.” The statement suggested that instead of flowers, memorial contributions could be made to the Neil Armstrong New Frontiers Initiative at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center or to the Neil Armstrong Scholarship Fund at the Telluride Foundation in Telluride, Colo. ——— Associated Press reporter Thomas Beaumont contributed in Tampa. ——— Contact the reporters at dansewell and TomBeaumont

Once there, the older man’s grandsons held him down while his son cut his hair, she said. Some of the victims and others from the community will testify against their relatives. The 16 people on trial live in a settlement near the West Virginia panhandle. All but one is related to the accused ringleader, Sam Mullet Sr., who sat rigidly in court with a beard hanging down to the middle of his chest. He wore a plain shirt with suspenders as did all the Amish men. The women wore white bonnets. The defendants have rejected plea bargain offers and could face lengthy prison terms if convicted. Prosecutors say those who were targeted in the attacks were people who left the settlement over disagreements with Mullet’s authoritarian methods. Others were bishops who had intervened in Mullet’s decision to excommunicate several members. The

bishops agreed the excommunications weren’t consistent with Amish teachings and decided not to recognize the penalties, which angered Mullet and inspired the attacks, prosecutors said. Mullet’s attorney said he never ordered the hair cuttings and can’t believe that what happened amounts to a hate crime. “What he’s saying is these are personal, family disputes” Bryan said. Some of the defense attorneys said their clients were motivated by anger at their parents over how they were raised and the lingering bitterness. Another attorney said one of the defendants, Lester Miller, took part in the hair cuttings of his parents because he felt they had strayed from their religion. “He thought his parents had forgotten their roots,” attorney Dean Carro said. “His intention was to take a symbolic step.”

Dems WWII vet gets diploma fired COLUMBUS (AP) — The state’s elections chief fired two Democrats from an elections board on Tuesday after they pushed to extend early voting into the weekends in their southwest Ohio county, beyond the hours he had ordered. Secretary of State Jon Husted initially suspended Thomas Ritchie Sr. and Dennis Lieberman from their positions on the Montgomery County Board of Elections and then temporarily lifted the suspension last week so the Daytonarea board could continue its work. He told the members in a letter Tuesday that he was immediately dismissing them. He said they “knowingly and willfully violated Ohio election law” by not following his directive. Ohio is one of 32 states, plus the District of Columbia, that allow voters to cast early ballots in person without having to give a reason. Husted, a Republican, has ordered election boards in Ohio’s 88 counties to have the same inperson, early voting hours on weekdays and to have no hours on weekends. Both members appeared at the secretary of state’s office last week for a hearing on whether they should be removed.

MEDINA (AP) — A 92-year-old Ohio man who dropped out of high school before serving in World War II finally got his diploma. The Elyria Chronicle Telegram reports that Raymond Smith’s family and friends gathered last weekend at his northern Ohio assisted-living home to celebrate his birthday. And Army Lt. Col. Roy Jenkins, head of Elyria High School’s Junior ROTC program, was there to present him with a diploma.

Ohio law allows veterans who dropped out of high school and then served in World War II, the Korean War or the Vietnam War to receive their diplomas. Smith dropped out of high school after his freshman year to support his three younger siblings. He then served in World War II from 1942-45. ——— Information from: The ChronicleTelegram,

to abide by the Armstrong family wish: “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.” The Armstrong Air & Space Museum will be open extended hours today from 9:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., with free admission. The public is invited to attend the memorial service and asked to bring lawn chairs. The museum is located just off of Interstate-75, exit 111. More information is available at the museum website w w w. A r m s t r o n g M u Obama on Monday issued a proclamation calling for U.S. flags to be lowered the day of Armstrong’s burial, including at the White House, military posts and ships, U.S. embassies and other public buildings “as a mark of respect for the memory of Neil Armstrong.” Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Monday had Ohio flags on all public buildings and grounds flown at half-staff through Friday. There have been preliminary discussions about a national memorial service for Armstrong, who often shunned publicity in the decades after his historic mission, but a family spokesman said there were no details yet. U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, who is from Ohio and has called Armstrong “a good friend and adviser,” will eulogize him at Friday’s service. Portman is in Tampa, Fla., for the Republican National Convention, where he is scheduled to speak Wednesday night. Spokeswoman Caitlin Dunn said his office is working on travel arrangements to get him back to Cincinnati in time for the service. The convention schedule has already been changed this week and could be further disrupted as Tropical Storm Isaac bears down on the Gulf Coast. Portman called Armstrong humble and gracious and on Monday he recounted for Ohioans at the convention an anecdote demonstrating Armstrong’s compassion for veterans and his desire to keep a low profile: Several years ago, the former astronaut accepted Portman’s request to help

CLEVELAND (AP) — A group of Amish men and women accused of hate crimes in attacks hair-cutting took action out of concern that members of their religion were straying from their beliefs, defense attorneys said Tuesday. Attorneys for the defendants didn’t deny that the hair cuttings took place. Instead, they argued that the Amish are bound by different rules guided by their religion and that the government shouldn’t get involved in what amounted to a family or church dispute. At the center of the trial, which opened this week in federal court, are the rules of a religion that distances itself from the outside world and yields to a collective order as opposed to the laws of society. “These religious sepaare ratists,” said Ed Bryan, the attorney for the

group’s accused ringleader. Prosecutors say the attacks were motivated solely by religious disagreements between Amish bishops and a breakaway group in eastern Ohio that attacked mainstream members five times last fall by cutting off their beards and hair, which carry spiritual significance in the faith. “Every one of these attacks targeted those symbols of Amish righteousness,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Brennan. The group spent months planning the attacks, she said. She described how sons pulled their father out of bed and chopped off his beard in the moonlight, and how women surrounded their mother-in-law and cut off two feet of her hair, taking it down to the scalp in some places. In the final attack, a man and his wife lured his parents to their farm, Brennan said.

TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Wednesday, Aug. 29, the 242nd day of 2012. There are 124 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 29, 1952, 4’33” (“Four Minutes, Thirtythree Seconds”), a threemovement composition by avant-garde composer John Cage, had its premiere in Woodstock, N.Y., as pianist David Tudor sat at a piano and, for a total of four minutes and 33 seconds, played… nothing. (According to Cage, the “music” consisted of the setting’s background noises, including the sounds of the increasingly restive audience.) On this date: ■ In 1533, the last Incan King of Peru, Atahualpa, was executed on orders of Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro. ■ In 1862, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing began operations at the United States Treasury. ■ In 1877, the second president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Brigham Young, died in Salt Lake City, Utah, at age 76. ■ In 1943, responding to a clampdown by Nazi occupiers, Denmark managed to scuttle most of its naval ships. ■ In 1944, 15,000 American troops marched down the Champs Elysees in Paris as the French capital continued to celebrate its liberation from the Nazis. ■ In 1957, the Senate gave final congressional approval to a Civil Rights Act after South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond (then a Democrat) ended a filibuster that had lasted 24 hours. ■ In 1958, pop superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Ind. ■ In 1962, Malvin R. Goode began covering the United Nations for ABCTV, becoming network television’s first black reporter. ■ In 1972, swimmer Mark Spitz of the United States won the third of his seven gold medals at the Munich Olympics, finishing first in the 200-meter freestyle. ■ In 1982, Academy Award-winning actress Ingrid Bergman died in London on her 67th birthday. ■ In 1987, Academy Award-winning actor Lee Marvin died in Tucson, Ariz., at age 63. ■ In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast near Buras, La., bringing floods that devastated New Orleans. More than 1,800 people in the region died.

OUT OF THE BLUE Bikini parade fails to break world record OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — A city in China still holds the bikini parade record after a failed attempt in Maryland. Organizers of Saturday’s effort in Ocean City to take the title from Huludao City in China fell short. Only about 325 woman turned out under rainy skies. Brad Hoffman, who organized the parade for the North Ocean City Business Alliance, blamed the rain for the poor turnout. Organizers were trying to attract more than 1,085 to break the record set in China earlier this month. The 25-block parade included women of all ages. The $10 registration fee for the event benefited charities including the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.

MEMBERS OF the Texas delegation react after casting their votes for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday.

Romney sweeps to nomination TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney swept to the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night at a storm-delayed national convention, every mention of his name cheered by delegates eager to propel him into a campaign to oust President Barack Obama in tough economic times. Romney watched on television with his wife, Ann, at a hotel suite across the street from the hall as the convention sealed his hard-won victories in the primaries and caucuses of last winter. “I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a “storybook marriage,” she said in

excerpts released in advance of a primetime speech meant to cast her multimillionaire-businessman-turned-politician husband in a soft and likable light. “Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once.” “A storybook marriage? No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage,” she said. Aides said her husband of 43 years would be in the hall when she spoke. Through the evening, a parade of convention speakers mocked Democratic President Obama mercilessly from a made-for-television podium, as if to make

up for lost time at an event postponed once and dogged still by Hurricane Isaac. The Democratic president has “never run a company. He hasn’t even run a garage sale or seen the inside of a lemonade stand,” declared Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican Party. Said House Speaker John Boehner, “His record is as shallow as his rhetoric.” To send Romney and ticketmate Paul Ryan into the fall campaign, delegates approved a conservative platform that calls for tax cuts — not government spending — to stimulate the economy at a time of sluggish growth and 8.3 percent unemployment.

Goal of opposition still elusive AZAZ, Syria (AP) — In the foreign halls of power, the strategy is clear: Syria’s opposition should unite to present an alternative to Bashar Assad’s rule — a step France’s president says would lead to diplomatic recognition. As a move toward unity, Syrian exiles from the main opposition Syrian National Council and other groups unveiled a blueprint Tuesday in the German capital of Berlin for tranto a democratic, sition transparent society free of religious and ethnic favoritism. But rebels and civilians in the bomb-shattered Syrian town of Azaz near the Turkish border view such talk as hollow. They are deeply skeptical of all exiled leaders and believe what really matters is their fight on the ground to overthrow the regime.

“They have never come up with a united position that will save the people,” said Fadi Hajji, 25, who had been camped out along the Syrian border with Turkey with his wife and two infant daughters for five days. “All they are good at is arguing. They don’t represent anyone here and they don’t help.” There was more bloodshed Tuesday as a car bomb ripped through a Damascus suburb, killing 12 people, according to the state news agency. Activists also said an airstrike in the town of Kfar Nabl killed at least 13 people as fighting raged nationwide. With no end to the carnage in sight, French President Francois Hollande called on the Syrian opposition Monday to form a provisional government, saying France would recognize

and support it. Hollande’s statement, believed to be the first of its kind, was quickly shot down by U.S. officials who said talk of a provisional government was premature given the deep divisions within the opposition movement. The head of the main Syrian opposition group, the Syrian National Council, criticized the U.S. stand, saying that efforts were under way to forge a united front but that the process takes time — especially in the midst of a raging civil war. “It seems to me as if the international community is not prepared to take decisive decisions and blames the Syrian opposition for its own shortcomings,” Abdelbaset Sieda told The Associated Press by telephone Tuesday.

Bride, groom climb mountain McLEAN, Va. (AP) — Bob Ewing has gotten a lot of mileage out of his decade-old tuxedo and has even run a couple of marathons in it. Now he’s been married in it, after he and his new bride made the 900-foot sheer climb on one of West Virginia’s most striking landmarks in full wedding regalia. Photos of the bride and groom, both residents of Arlington, Va., atop the narrow peak of Seneca Rocks in West Virginia have become a hit on the Internet, with more than 500,000 views. The bride, Antonie Hodge Ewing, made the climb in her mother’s wedding gown. Her mother, Evangeline Hodge of Los Alamos, N.M., made the climb as well. “I had to prove to myself I could do it,” said Evangeline Hodge, a novice climber who refused permission to print her age, telling a reporter to come up with a creative adjective for “old.” ”I did it for all the old people out there.” It was Antonie’s idea to get married on the peak. Ewing proposed to her in March as the couple scaled the rocks, and after she said yes, she informed him that she wanted to get married there as well. The family pitched in. Brother Scott Ewing got himself ordained and performed the ceremony. A second brother, John Ewing, made a separate climb and photographed the ceremony with a rented, high-powered lens.

Isaac spins into Louisiana NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Hurricane Isaac spun into the southern Louisiana coast late Tuesday, sending floodwaters surging and unleashing fierce winds, as residents hunkered down behind boarded-up windows. New Orleans calmly waited out another storm on the eve of Hurricane Katrina’s seventh anniversary, hoping the city’s strengthened levees will hold. Isaac, a massive storm spanning nearly 200 miles from its center, made landfall at about 6:45 p.m. near the mouth of the Mississippi River. But it was zeroing in on New Orleans, about 90 miles to the northwest, turning streets famous for all-hours celebrations into ghost boulevards. While many residents stayed put, evacuations were ordered in low-lying areas of Louisiana and Mississippi, where officials ordered the closure of the state’s 12 shorefront casinos. By late Tuesday, more than 100,000 homes and businesses had lost power. Ed Rappaport, deputy director of the National Hurricane Center, said Isaac’s core would pass west of New Orleans with winds close to 80 mph and head for Baton Rouge. “On this course, the hurricane will gradually weaken. Its winds will come down,” Rappaport said Tuesday night from the Miami-based center. He said gusts could reach about 100 mph at times, especially at higher levels which could damage high-rise buildings in New Orleans. As Isaac neared the city, there was little fear or panic. With New Orleans’ airport closed, tourists retreated to hotels and most denizens of a coastline that has witnessed countless hurricanes decided to ride out the storm. “Isaac is the son of Abraham,” said Margaret Thomas, who was trapped for a week in her home in New Orleans’ Broadmoor neighborhood by Katrina’s floodwaters, yet chose to stay put this time. “It’s a special name that means ‘God will protect us’.” Still, the storm drew intense scrutiny because of its timing — just before the anniversary of Katrina and coinciding with the first major speeches of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., already delayed and tempered by the storm.

Because some of the dancers carry pieces that are antique, family heirlooms, the head dancers caution attendees not to touch any part of a performer’s regalia without asking first. Likewise, Allen said, don’t take any photos without permission. The gathering will open Sept. 6 with a lecture

area residents to see various kinds of Native American dance. “Because participants will come from all over and represent different tribes, the styles of dancing will be many,” she said. According to Samaniego, what people will see is the only dancing indigenous to the North American continent. “This is true America,” he said. “Each person has his own version of the dance. That’s your dance.” The styles of dancing fall into three categories: traditional, grass and fancy. “Traditional is the story dance,” Samaniego added. The dancers tell a story – of war, of the hunt, of conquest – “or whatever you want to say.” The garb of the traditional dancers is made of broadcloth or leather or wool. “If you looked at a picture of a traditional dancer from 100 years ago and put it next to a dancer of today, they would look the same,” he said. Fancy dancing was adopted by Native Americans after it became popular in the Wild West shows that toured the country in the early 20th century. The regalia of fancy dancers features bright colors, satins and silks. “We weren’t flashy enough” for the staged performances, Samaniego said. According to Wikipedia, members of the Ponca tribe developed the dance in the 1920s and 1930s to entertain tourists on the reservations. It showcases the great strength and prowess of its performers. “Fancy dancing is a real crowd-pleaser,” Phlipot said. Grass dancing harks back to a time when Native Americans gathered on prairies, where grass was high. The grass

Campaign is disgrace To the editor: I want to go on record to say that the campaigning for our national president is an abomination. It is shameful and a national disgrace. The high office of the presidency is degraded. The amount of money spent on political ads is appalling. Tearing down a person in order to build another person will never be successful. The insults, innuendos and lies cannot be blessed by God. If I were making the rules, the candidates would be allowed to speak only of themselves and never mention their opponents. The problems of America and the world are caused by sin. America has disregarded the spiritual principles that the founding fathers used in establishing our country. We have forced God out of our schools and communties, whereas God has plainly told us that he can only bless the people who obey his in-

structions as given in the Bible. Jesus Christ is the answer to all our problems and never a government that ignores God. David W. Bastian said the following in an article in the “Czech Republic” dated April 28, 2011: “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depressed electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.” God has removed his hedge of protection from America. Judgment is coming!

It was balanced

primarily by cuts to schools and local governments, plus simply predicting higher revenues in an improving economy (which came to pass and then some) and another large chunk was to come from selling off certain prisons and the state liquor enterprise. The state claims they have sent us a “toolbox” to help us fix the problem ourselves. Once SB 5 went out the window, there was nothing of any consequence left in that box but gimmicks — particularly a buzzword called “shared services.” Although Columbus seems to think they invented local government cooperation to get things done, Shelby County and the City of Sidney have a list of 37 shared services and projects that we participated in together long before the vaunted “toolbox” got here. That does not include similar shared services among all other local governments. “Shared services” is a wonderful-sounding talking point, but that is all it really is. Anything left in that tank could not begin to make up for the $3 million of funding that formerly was returned every year to Shelby County communities from taxes paid by local residents to the state. That money was diverted at the state level and is no longer available to pay

for important services here in our communities. Incidentally, those funds are no longer helping support the Shelby County economy either. I think the legislators we sent to Columbus to represent us should be thinking about that. As one of their arguments, the governor’s office claimed credit for the state’s bond rating being improved. I have a copy of the Standard and Poor’s announcement dated July, 2011, when the governor had been in office for only six months. Almost all of the reasoning presented in that report was based on such things as Ohio’s diversified economy, low debt, reserves available in 2009, conservative tradition, and other things already accomplished in bygone years. In fact it referred only to the 2010-11 budget being balanced. Those were years when local governments were fully funded. I saw no mention of the new budget at all. Both the governors’ office and Mr. Adams said they look forward to working with us in the future. We look forward to that, too. Unfortunately, it will be a new experience, especially with the governor’s office, if the conversation goes both ways next time. The writer is the Shelby County Auditor.

serious infectious diseases. At the same time, keeping people healthier through immunization lowers associated social and financial costs for families, including time lost from school and work, and the cost of medical bills. According to the CDC, during the first half of 2012, increased pertussis (whooping cough) activity or outbreaks have been reported in a majority of states. The best way to prevent pertussis is to get vaccinated. There are vaccines for infants, children, preteens, teens and adults. The childhood vaccine is called DTaP, and the pertussis booster vaccine for adolescents and adults is called Tdap. It is important to talk to your health care provider about vaccinating your family against pertussis. The CDC’s recommended immunization schedule for children age birth through 6 years suggests timely inoculation against hepatitis A and B, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, polio, measles-mumpsrubella and other diseases. The schedules

may be found online at ml. In addition, the CDC highlights programs that help people keep up to date on their immunizations, including Vaccines for Children Program (, a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who are eligible. Another helpful online resource,, provides information about preventive care guidelines — such as routine health screenings and immunization schedules — that are customized based on age and gender. It’s important to remember that a quick visit to the doctor’s office for regular and timely immunizations is a simple step to help prevent your child from possibly developing a serious disease down the road.

Happy retirement! Farm Service Agency Executive Director for Shelby County Roger Lentz, (left) of Anna, talks with Mike Dodds, of Sidney, executive director of the West Ohio Development Countil, at Lentz’s retirement party Tuesday at the Ag Center on Fair Road. Lentz is retiring from the FSA with more than 30 years on the job. His last day of work is Friday.

School’s in: Sheriff reminds motorists to drive safely Shelby County children are back in school which also means school buses are back on local roads. The Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office reminds motorists to safely share the road with school buses, it is necessary to know the proper laws and procedures. Drivers must stop at least 20 feet away from school buses when the red lights are flashing and the stop signal arm is extended. It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or un-

load children. School buses also use yellow flashing lights to alert motorists they are preparing to stop. State law requires that traffic in both directions stop on undivided roadways when students are entering or exiting a school bus. On a divided roadway, traffic behind the bus traveling in the same direction must stop. The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Motorists must stop

far enough behind the bus to allow children the necessary space to safely enter and exit. Never pass a school bus on the right. It is illegal and could have tragic consequences. “Be alert,” Sheriff John Lenhart cautions. “Children are unpredictable. Walking to or from the bus, they are usually very comfortable with their surroundings. This makes them more likely to take risks, ignore hazards or fail to look both ways when crossing the street.”

all we say to each other is “Hi,” and then he looks the other way. He is dating another girl now, and I get upset whenever I see him with her. He was supposed to be mine. I keep asking myself, “Why did he dump me?” The answer is probably because I gave him everything, and once he had everything, he moved on. - Nameless, Oklahoma City, Okla.

Ben McClain was johnny on the spot on a Wayne clearing attempt, playing it to the ground and then shooting it past the goalie for a 1-0 lead with 11:32 remaining in the first half. “Two freshmen played a big role in this win,” said Harlamert, referring to Snavley also being a freshman. “This was another big win for us.” Sidney was outshot 14-10 in the game, and Snavley finished with 10 saves. The junior varsity won 4-2, with Luke Dahlinghaus scoring two goals and Bradley Burden and Kyle Mann one each. Burden and Noah Richards had assists.

Meyer expects ‘emotional time’ Saturday BY JIM NAVEAU Ohio Community Media COLUMBUS — From the day U r b a n Meyer was hired as Ohio State ’s football coach, the focus has been on the impact he Meyer has had on the Buckeyes’ program. But Meyer admits running out onto the field for OSU’s eagerly anticipated opener against Miami of Ohio on Saturday will have an impact on him, too. “I have a few notes I’ll carry with me in a older to keep my face in the game and not worry about when Hang On Sloopy gets played,”

Meyer said at his first weekly press conference of the season on Monday. “It’s real. I have to do that because I’ll be coming out of my shoes a little bit,” he said. “I was 4 years old, maybe 3½ when I first saw the Scarlet and Gray play. So it’s going to be an emotional time. Very much so.” Ohio State , 6-7 a year ago, will be trying to bounce back from its first seven-loss season since 1897 against Miami , which finished 4-8 a year ago. The RedHawks are led by Ada ’s Zac Dysert, a four-year starter at quarterback. Meyer said he see a team “chomping at the bit” to play a game when he looks at his team as it heads toward the opener. “I want to have an angry team, a team with a chip on its shoulder. And at this point, I’d say

we have that,” he said. Much of that anger – which Meyer has used as a motivational tool whenever he can – stems from last year’s record and the beating the Buckeyes took in the court of public opinion. “They’re not very well thought of. I mean, they lost a lot of games, the most games since the 1800s or something. That’s their legacy,” Meyer said when asked about the source of that anger. “There’s nothing like a group of kids that really want to prove someone wrong or prove something to someone. “That’s every coach’s dream as opposed to the fat cat who sits back and say, ‘Hey, we’re good. Don’t worry about it,’ ” he said. Meyer is associated with change at Ohio State . He is expected to

bring a new beginning, a new attitude, a new offense and more. But, schooled in OSU tradition as a graduate assistant to Earle Bruce in the 1980s, he knows there are some things you don’t mess with. When asked if he would still award Buckeye leaves helmet stickers to players for good plays in games, he laughed. “We’ll continue the Buckeye leaves. Can you imagine that (not giving them out)? I’d need security everywhere I went,” Meyer said. On the day he was hired in November, Meyer said this was what he wanted his players and staff to do: “Go hard. I want a bunch of coaches who coach like their hair is on fire and I want a football team that gives four to

six seconds of relentless effort. You do that and you’ve got a chance to win any game you play.” The first test of that plan comes on Saturday. NOTES • Nathan Williams update: Defensive end Nathan Williams, who missed last season because of knee surgery could play at least part of Saturday’s game if he appears ready during practice this week. “We hope to have him on a limited basis on Saturday,” Meyer said. • Shazier healthy: again Linebacker Ryan Shazier missed several days of practice because of a concussion but says he’ll be ready for the opener. “I feel like I’m close to 100 percent. I’m fine,” Shazier said on Monday. • Foot surgery sidelines Ball: Freshman running back Warren Left: Tori Lachey, 7, daughter of Shannon and Joe Lachey Right: Lisa Adams, 10, daughter of John & Tara Adams 2313056

Ball is out indefinitely after having foot surgery. • Going for the block: Blocked punts are a point of emphasis for Meyer on defense. Linebacker Etienne Sabino says Meyer even has a name for that unit. “It’s called The Freak Show. All the fast guys – Bradley Roby, Thomas Howard, Corey Brown – are on it,” Sabino said. • Right tackle settled: Converted tight end Reid Fragel has won the starting right tackle job over freshman Taylor Decker. “Reid is just a little ahead so he’ll get the nod this Saturday as the starter,” offensive line coach Ed Warinner said. “Reid is older, a little more veteran, a little more ready to go.” Decker will be the first substitute at right tackle and left tackle.

Jackets get losing streak Russia, Anna, out of the way in a hurry Fairlawn win

SIDNEY FANS rush the field to join in the celebration with the players following the 10-7 overtime victory over St. Marys Friday night. The win ended Sidney’s 20-game losing streak. non has been in storage. In recent years a recorded cannon blast has been played on the sound system. On Friday night for the Bellefontaine game, the real thing will return. The VESPA-QB club, with the assistance of longtime booster Joe Sturm, has built a large sturdy platform beyond the south end zone to accomodate the cannon in a safe environment. Its height is adequate for the cannon operator to see the game above the fence. Looks like fun on Friday night which also marks the annual appearance of the SHS Alumni Band. The crowd will be large, as always, especially after last Friday’s win at St. Marys.

Foundation game

A big bright spot for the Fort Loramie Redskins in their loss to Minster Friday was the punting of quarterback Seth Guillozet. Guillozet punted five times for an average of 43 yards, and that includes one that traveled only 30 yards. Meanwhile, Minster showed it’s going to be one of the top teams in the area this season. The Wildcats have a bevy of running backs this season, and strong-armed quarterback Adam Niemeyer opened the season by going 13-for16 passing for 152 yards and two touchdowns.

A couple of years back, the OHSAA came up with a unique way for schools to play a third football scrimmage called a Foundation Game. If a host school would pay the OHSAA $500 toward the group’s catastrophic insurance fund, admission could be charged to defray the $500 and also benefit a local external charity. Sidney High got involved this year as host to Dayton Meadowdale on Aug. 17. Athletic director Jeff Courter reported a major success, including $1056 for the Alpha Community Center in downtown Sidney. Admission was $3 and no passes were honored. “Even I paid to get in,” said Courter. “We had a great night and will do it again.”

Cannon returns

Numbers shaky

Bright spot

Beginning in 1968 the former VESPA club initiated a tradition of shooting a cannon at home games to salute the Sidney Yellow Jackets after introductions and scores. The cannon’s first home was the back of an old firetruck which lasted a few years before a converted milk van was utilized. Both were parked on the track near the north goal line on the home side. From the mid-1970’s through 2003 the cannon sat on the north end zone hillside during games. Since the 2004 opening of Sidney Memorial Stadium, the can-

Riverside’s varsity numbers are also a problem and it may get worse next year. The Pirates’ total number of players stood at 23 at last report, and nine are seniors. Lehman hosts Riverside in Sidney on Sept. 21. Three weeks later, Loramie heads to DeGraff. Riverside also lost a game when Troy Christian canceled its varsity season this year. The Pirates will play Emmanuel Christian instead on Sept. 14 at home, but it will be considered a JV game, since Emmanuel does not yet have varsity football.

Legendary ticket-taker When Lehman was formed in 1970, Leo Steinke was an active booster who also took tickets at football and basketball games. Leo worked the ticket booth through last winter after being named to the school’s Hall of Fame. He recently passed away at age 90. Volunteers mean so much to scholastic sports programs, especially at parochial schools. Leo Steinke gave over four decades of service to the Cavaliers. Lehman gave him a nice party for birthday number 90.

Lippincott back at Moeller Former Marion Local (1974-77) and Sidney (1979-80) head football coach Jim Lippincott just completed two decades working in the personnel department of the Cincinnati Bengals, and has now returned to another previous job as defensive coordinator at Cincinnati Moeller. Moeller is favored by many to win the Ohio big school title this season. The Crusaders always play high profile nonconference opponents in high profile situations, including regional and

national television. The OHSAA doesn’t allow live TV of Friday night games but other days can be utilized. Moeller’s first three games this season are on a Sunday and two Saturdays.

Steroid test The latest round of Texas high school steroids tests caught nine athletes for using performance-enhancing drugs. The University Interscholastic League on Friday released testing results for the 2011-2012 academic year. The UIL report says 3,311 tests were conducted. Of those, nine were positive for steroid use. Two others were considered positive tests because one athlete did not report for testing when selected and another tried to substitute someone else’s urine sample for their own. An athlete who tests positive or breaks protocol is suspended from sports for 30 school days. The tests selected athletes at 217 schools. Boys were most often tested with 3,087, compared to 224 girls. Football was the most-tested sport with 1,366. Girls’ golf had the fewest with four. — AP

You can bet the Sidney Yellow Jackets have a little more hop in their step this week after getting the 20-game losing streak out of the way in thrilling fashion Friday in the season opener. It went to overtime, and Andre Spillers booted a 30-yard field goal — twice — to set off quite a celebration on the Sidney side of the field. Head coach Adam Doenges talked in preseason about the streak, hoping to get it out of the way ASAP. And he was pleased with the way in happened, with his defense holding the Roughriders to just seven points. After giving up 55 points a game last season, Doenges said the defense was much-maligned coming into the summer workouts. But the players were up to the task, forcing a turnover in overtime to set up the winning score. Sophomore running back Eric Barnes turned in quite a debut, rushing for 75 yards on 14 carries, an average of 5.4 per carry. The Jackets rushed for 167 yards on the night. Ironically, Sidney, the team that hadn’t won a game the past two seasons, was the only team in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North to win Friday night. Piqua, Troy, Trotwood, Vandalia and Greenville all lost their season openers. The Jackets now await Bellefontaine Friday at Sidney Memorial Stadium hoping to end a three-game losing streak to the Chieftains, who were routed at home by Wapakoneta last week.

The Cardinals played most of the game without catcher Yadier Molina, who suffered neck, back and shoulder injuries following a violent collision at home plate with Pittsburgh second baseman Josh Harrison. Harrison was attempting to score on a single to right field by Jose Tabata with two outs in the bottom of the second when he lowered his left shoulder and drilled Molina in the head as the catcher blocked the plate.

The Lehman girls ran their record to 3-0 with a 6-0 blanking of Graham at the Sidney High soccer complex Monday. The Lady Cavs were led by Sarah Titterington, who scored four of her team’s goals. The first game just two minutes into the game to set the tone, and it came off an assist from Sara Fuller. With 24 minutes left, Titterington scored again on a breakaway from about 18 yards out. Olivia Sehlhorst scored with 13 minutes left in the half off an assist from Marla Schroeder, whose ball hit off the goalkeeper. Titterington then took another assist from Fuller for a goal with just six minutes left in the half. Ten minutes into the second half, Fuller was fouled and Schroeder converted on the penalty kick. Titterington then added her fourth goal with 24 minutes left off an assist from Elizabeth Edwards. “I thought Madeline Franklin was a big key tonight,” said Lehman coach Tony Schroeder. “She moved on defense to center because of an injury to Carly Baird, and she picked up the communication, which is so important.” The Lady Cavs will travel to Dayton Christian on Saturday in their next outing.

Farm Science Review observing 50th anniversary BY FRAN ODYNIEC Ohio Community Media LONDON — In its debut year of 1962 at the Ohio State University’s Don Scott Airport, the Farm Science Review attracted 18,000 visitors at 50 cents a head, who viewed 116 commercial exhibits and observed the first no-till corn demonstrations. Fifty years and a few million visitors later, the Farm Science Review (FSR) expects more than 600 exhibitors and nearly 140,000 people to attend this year’s landmark event Sept. 18-20 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London. “It’s a simplistic name, but that’s what we do,” said Chuck Gamble, manager of the FSR. “Companies bring their best technology, equipment, seed and services to one effective venue.” He then laughed when he said, “Where else would you locate a farm show?” referring to the 990 acres that comprise the Molly Caren Agricultural Center. Spread out over 17 streets with names such as Beef Street, Dairy Street, Soybean Avenue, Corn Avenue, and Wool Avenue, five demo fields, and 20 plots, with as many as 56 different product categories ranging from alternative energy, animal care products, breeders, drills, planters and seeders, combines and harvesters to feed, grain handling equipment, herbicides, insecticides, agricultural chemicals, manure handling equipment, manure handling equipment and many others, there is little wonder why the FSR brings in visitors from all over North America. “We’re not just an Ohio show,” Gamble commented. “We’re open to the world.” “Couple OSU and the OSU Extension with the Farm Science Review and you would be hard pressed to find a show with as robust an educational component as the Farm Science Review,” he said, “with all the programs,

THE FARM Science Review draws between 130,000 and 140,000 attendees for the three-day event held at The Ohio State University’s Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London. field faculty, and resources available to the farmers attending.” According to Gamble, a farmer not only wants to see what’s new, he wants to see how it operates. For example, at last year’s Review, nine combines were out in the field demonstrating what they could do with soybeans. In another demo field, auto-steer technology showed how it can keep a combine right where it should be and know just how many plants per acre are being harvested. “Farmers are so mechanically-minded,” he pointed out, “the demos are a close second as to why they come to the Review. They’ll see planting, harvesting and spraying demos.” This year’s demo lineup includes strip-tilling, global positioning, manure handling and tillage. Surveys taken by the FSR have indicated that the average distance traveled to the show is 102 miles. “It shows that people are willing to invest the time to drive to the Review,” Gamble said. While the FSR draws the bulk of its attendance from the surrounding states of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan, Indiana, and Ken-

tucky, he said that it never ceases to amaze him that so many people come down from Canada. Gamble described the FSR as a manufacturer’s showcase where a company will display its best equipment and services and also bring along its experts. “They’re making contacts with potential buyers,” he continued. “It’s a pullthrough strategy in that six to nine months later, somebody will want to buy a piece of equipment and go to the local dealer to place an order.” But he emphasized the benefits the FSR provides of being able not only to watch how a piece of equipment performs in the demo field, but also of having an expert right there to talk about a product and answer questions. At OSU Central located between Friday Avenue and Land Avenue and Kottman Street and Market Street, displays from OSU colleges and departments will include: farm health and safety, cancer prevention, farm management, financial and economical information, the environment, and human and community development. Antique farm equipment from the Review’s collection

of more than 1,600 pieces of farm machinery, garden equipment and kitchen utensils from between 1800 and 1930 will be on display in the William L. George Building at Market Street and Friday Avenue. Commenting on this year’s theme for the FSR, Gamble said, “‘Forecasting the Future for 50 Years’ is the true essence of the Farm Science Review.” The 50th annual Farm Science Review, sponsored by The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences: Resident Instruction Programs, OSU Extension and Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, will take place at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, located two miles of London on U.S. Route 40. Hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 18 and 19, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 20. Admission is $5 in advance from most Ohio agribusinesses and all county offices of OSU Extension; $8 at the gate. Children 5 and under admitted free. For more information, visit Fran Odyniec is managing editor of the The Madison Press in London, Madison County.

Sidney Daily News,Wednesday, August 29, 2012













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you might set out to make some long-range plans, actually today is a poor day to do this. The truth is, you’re full of self-doubt and are second-guessing yourself. Just wait. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Tension with others, especially in group situations, might build today. (It’s the Full Moon tomorrow.) Furthermore, someone might be less than honest. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Play your cards close to your chest today, because aspects of your private life suddenly are made public to bosses and parents. Furthermore, misunderstandings run rampant. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t listen to people who claim they know everything but really don’t. Don’t fall under the spell of someone who is mesmerizing but possibly just a phony! Be careful. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a poor day to decide how to deal with inheritances and shared property. There’s an element of deceit present, and certainly confusion. Easy does it. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Tension with others is likely today because of the energy building up before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Incidentally, it is the only Full Moon directly opposite your sign all year! (Gulp.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Don’t make an issue about something at work today; it will only backfire. Everyone is a bit on edge because of the energy building up before tomorrow’s Full Moon. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be extra patient with children and romantic partners. Situations that are usually playful might be stressful today. Take the high road. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Difficulties with family conversations are likely today. Avoid arguments with parents, especially mothers, or female relatives. Don’t even go there. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This could be an accident-prone day simply because of your own inclination to be distracted or even angry with someone. If you keep calm, nothing will happen. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Disagreements about possessions, money or shared responsibilities might arise today. Why not postpone these discussions for a few days? (Good idea.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Tomorrow, the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. Naturally, you feel this energy building up within you today, causing problems with others. Be cool. Don’t take things personally, and don’t overreact. We’re all in this Big Soup together. YOU BORN TODAY In many ways, the key to your success is your selfconfidence. You are organized, financially astute yet modest. You don’t need a lot of flash and fanfare, but you do value your security. Perhaps this is why family and others often depend on you. You like to be organized. In the year ahead, you will study or learn something valuable to you. Birthdate of: Warren Buffett, entrepreneur/philanthropist; Lisa Ling, journalist; Cameron Diaz, actress. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
