Judge orders DNA testing in Hemsley death EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A Texas judge has ordered DNA testing on a man who claims to be the brother of the late “The Jeffersons” star Sherman Hemsley. Richard Thornton is

challenging the validity of Hemsley’s will, which names the actor’s longtime manager, Flora Enchinton of El Paso, as sole beneficiary. Hemsley died of lung cancer July 24.

Judge Patricia Chew on Monday rescheduled the El Paso trial on Hemsley’s estate to begin Oct. 31. Thornton, of Philadelphia, sought the DNA testing and must provide

results by Oct. 15. Hemsley was born in Philadelphia but had lived in El Paso for the past 20 years. Court documents indicate Hemsley’s estate is worth more than $50,000.

Dog is ‘mom’ to kitten JORDAN, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota woman says she was shocked when her small dog began caring for an abandoned kitten, then started producing milk and nursing the fuzzy gray stray to health. Pat Weber says the kitten was days old when her grandson found it in the family’s barn in early September in Jordan, about 40 miles southwest of Minneapolis. She says the 2-inch-long kitten was “ice cold.” But she felt it move, so she wrapped the kitten in a warm towel. Then it began meowing — and her 4-yearold Pekingese perked up. The tawny pooch named Mittens began licking the kitten, who nuzzled in and began suckling. Mittens hadn't had puppies in two years, yet she eventually began producing milk. She’s been nursing the kitten ever since. Weber calls it a miracle.

PRESIDENT BARACK Obama who is in town for the 67th session of the General Assembly at United Nations speaks at UN Headquarters Tuesday.

Obama summons world leaders to reject extremism UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Confronting global tumult and Muslim anger, President Barack Obama exhorted world leaders Tuesday to stand fast against violence and extremism, arguing that protecting religious rights and free speech must be a universal responsibility and not just an American obligation. “The impulse towards intolerance and violence may initially be focused on the West, but over time it cannot be contained,” Obama warned the U.N. General Assembly in an urgent call to action underscored by the high stakes for all nations. The gloomy backdrop for Obama’s speech — a world riven by deadly protests against an anti-Islamic video, by war in Syria, by rising tension over a nuclear Iran and more — marked the dramatic shifts that have occurred in the year since the General Assembly’s last ministerial meeting,

when democratic uprisings in the Arab world created a sense of excitement and optimism. Obama had tough words for Iran and condemned anew the violence in Syria as Bashar alAssad tries to retain power. Six weeks before the U.S. presidential election, an unmistakable campaign element framed Obama’s speech as well: The president’s Republican rival, Mitt Romney, has tried to cast him as a weak leader on the world stage, too quick to apologize for American values. Romney, speaking at a Clinton Global Initiative forum just miles from the U.N., avoided direct criticism of Obama in deference to the apolitical settings of the day, but he said he hoped to return a year later “as president, having made substantial progress” on democratic reforms. Obama, likewise, avoided direct politicking in his speech but offered a pointed contrast

to his GOP opponent’s caughton-tape comment that there is little hope for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. “Among Israelis and Palestinians,” Obama said, “the future must not belong to those who turn their backs on a prospect of peace.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s opening state-of-theworld speech to the General Assembly’s presidents, prime ministers and monarchs sketched the current time as one when “too often, divisions are exploited for short-term political gain” and “too many people are ready to take small flames of indifference and turn them into a bonfire.” The leaders are assembled here as anger still churns over a made-in-America video that mocked the Prophet Muhammad. The video helped touch off protests throughout the Muslim world that have left at least 40 people dead, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

Rebel’s death raises calls for vengeance MISRATA, Libya (AP) — One of the young Libyan rebels credited with capturing Moammar Gadhafi in a drainage ditch nearly a year ago died Tuesday of injuries after being kidnapped, beaten and slashed by the late dictator’s supporters — the latest victim of persistent violence and instability in the North African country. The death of Omran Shaaban, who had been hospitalized in France, raised the prospect of even more violence and score-settling, with the newly elected National Congress authorizing police and the army to use force if necessary to apprehend those who abducted the 22-year-old and three companions in July near the town of Bani Walid. Libya is battling lingering pockets of support for the old regime, and its government has been unable to rein in armed militias in a country rife with weapons. Earlier this month, a demonstration at the U.S. Consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi turned violent, killing four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador. Shaaban was praised as a “dutiful martyr” by the National Congress, although his family says he never received a promised reward of 1 million Libyan dinars ($800,000) for capturing Gadhafi on Oct. 20, 2011, in the former leader’s hometown of Sirte. The eccentric dictator was

killed later that day by revolutionary fighters. The Libyan government said it would honor Shaaban with a funeral befitting a hero. His body was greeted at the airport in his hometown of Misrata by more than 10,000 people for a procession to a soccer stadium for funeral prayers. Photos on social media websites showed a wooden coffin with a glass window that revealed Shaaban’s face, with white gauze covering his head. In the capital of Tripoli, several hundred protesters gathered outside the headquarters of the National Congress to demand that the government avenge Shaaban’s death. Shaaban’s family said that he and three friends had been en route home to the western city of Misrata from a vacation in July when they were attacked by gunmen in an area called el-Shimekh near Bani Walid. Shaaban and his friends, who like many Libyans were armed, fired back, the family said. Two bullets hit Shaaban, and he was paralyzed from the waist down, his relatives said. The men were captured by militiamen from Bani Walid, a town of about 100,000 people that remains a stronghold of Gadhafi loyalists and is isolated from the rest of Libya.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A surprise ruling by a federal appeals court that lets the Army Corps of Engineers off the hook for paying compensation for Hurricane Katrina’s catastrophic flooding isn’t going over well on the streets of New Orleans. in southern People Louisiana have long taken for granted that the flooding in the wake of the 2005 storm was a manmade disaster — one caused specifically by the corps — and they have wanted the agency to pay up for lost homes and property. But on Monday, a threejudge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed its earlier opinion and shot down the only argument that had succeeded so far in holding the corps accountable. The ruling also could make it extremely difficult to force the government to pay damages for future mishaps. In March, the appellate court panel upheld a 2009 ruling by U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval that had found the corps liable for the flooding of New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward neighborhood and St. Bernard Parish because the agency failed to properly maintain a shipping channel. That channel, dug in the 1960s, funneled Katrina’s storm surge into the city. Thousands of homes were destroyed, about 1,400 people died in the flood and much of the city was left under water. Then on Monday, the same panel did a legal backflip and said its new ruling “completely insulates the government from liability,” leaving lawyers and residents baffled. “There are certain criteria where the federal government can be sued, and I think the levee breaches is a perfect example because the Corps of Engineers is the one that developed the levee system,” said Alvin Alexis, 62, who had two female cousins die in the flood. His home was flooded, and he moved his family across the Mississippi River to an area he considers safer. Because he was a renter, he said he got only $10,000 in federal aid. In the Lower 9th Ward, one of the areas hit hardest by Katrina, restaurant owner Henry Holmes said he was disappointed. He said he has struggled to keep his restaurant open in an area that is now a mere shell of what it was before the storm. “I feel like somebody should be held liable,” Holmes said. Neither Holmes nor Alexis were plaintiffs. Despite the tens of billions of dollars in reconstruction money spent so far in New Orleans, some 500,000 people, businesses and government agencies have sought additional compensation by filing claims against the corps.

NYC schools dispensing morning-after pill NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a campaign believed to be unprecedented in its size and aggressiveness: New York City is dispensing the morning-after pill to girls as young as 14 at more than 50 public high schools, sometimes even before they have had sex. The effort to combat teen pregnancy in the nation’s largest city contrasts sharply with the views of politicians and school systems in more conservative parts of the country. Valerie Huber, president of the National Abstinence Education Association in Washington, calls it “a terrible case once again of bigotry of low expectations” — presuming that teen girls will have sex anyway, and effectively endorsing that. But some doctors say more schools should follow New York’s lead. Emergency contraception is safe and effective “if you use it in a timely fashion. It provides relief or solace to a young

woman or man who has made a mistake but doesn’t want to have to live with that mistake for the rest of their lives,” said Dr. Cora Breuner, a Seattle physician and member of an American Academy of Pediatrics’ committee on teen health. Plan B emergency contraception is about 90 percent effective at preventing pregnancy if taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. New York’s program was phased in at health clinics at about 40 schools in the 1-million-student school system starting about four years ago. Since January 2011, it has expanded to 13 additional schools that don’t have clinics. The littleknown program was reported on Sunday by the New York Post. Nurse practitioners or physicians dispense the pills, and parents can sign an opt-out form preventing their daughters from taking part. Only about 1 to 2 percent of parents have opted out, according to the city Health Department.

The program is seen as a way to reduce a startling number: More than 7,000 New York City girls ages 15 to 17 get pregnant each year. More than twothirds of those pregnancies end in abortions. “We are committed to trying new approaches … to improve a situation that can have lifelong consequences,” the Health Department said in a statement. In the 2011-12 school year, 576 girls got the pills at the 13 added schools, said Deborah Kaplan, an assistant health commissioner. Felicia Regina, Parent Association president at Port Richmond High on Staten Island, has two teens at the school, a junior and a senior, and said she has never heard any parents voice objections. “I do think it’s a good idea,” she said. “The children nowadays are not going to abstain from sexual intercourse. How many unwed mothers do we need?”

Expo features heart health for women PIQUA — Basic cardiac health for women can be as simple as the ABCs with a D added, those attending the third Go Red for Women/North Health and Wellness Expo heard Sept. 8. Among activities at the event at Edison Community College was an Ask the Doctor cardiology panel comprising Cass Cullis, MD; William Czajka, MD; and Susan Hoying, certified nurse practitioner, of UVMC/Upper Valley Cardiology. Hoying said that a recent American Heart Association article did a good job of using the ABCs to provide a reminder about heart health. The A is for aspirin for high risk people. “You can talk with your physician about that. We love aspirin and encourage patients to be on aspirin because they have heart disease,” she said. B is for blood pressure, C is for cholesterol and D is for diet. “Knowing your numbers for blood pressure and cholesterol are keys,


and a good diet can help improve many heart disease issues,” Hoying said. Talking with one’s doctor about whether to take aspirin is important, the doctors said, because of aspirin’s blood thinning effect. That effect makes aspirin useful in treating coronary and vascular disease. Historically, it was recommended that everyone take an aspirin every morning, but that no longer is the case, Czajka said. “There are definite indications to take aspirin, but there is a risk of bleeding so you have to meet definite criteria to make a recommendation,” Cullis said. The thinking also has changed when it comes to blood pressure and hypertension, Czajka said. An acceptable blood pressure today can be 140/90, with the best time to take the blood pressure reading being shortly after getting up in the morning, he said. The signs of heart trouble may be different in men and women. Hoy-

ing said women are more likely to complain of pain in the shoulder blades and being tired and more short of breath than in the past. “We see a wide range of symptoms they say point to heart disease. We have to take all of them seriously,” she said. The care providers also were questioned about exercise and how much is needed. “Exercise as much as you can. Stay on the move” whether running, walking, doing housework or yard work, Czajka said. Cullis said a rule of thumb would be 30 minutes of exercise daily at a vigorous pace for walking, running and jogging, if physically possible. For many people, weight and diet are an issue, Hoying said. She didn’t point to any particular diet. “We all know it should be more fruits and vegetables, lean meats, watch sodium intake,” she said.

Vectren stresses furnace safety

SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg

TERRY ROSE (left), of Fletcher, and David Wolford, of North Lawrence, talk after being honored recently by Continental Express for driving 1 million miles on the job without an accident.

Continental drivers get safety awards Continental Express Inc., 10450 State Route 47, held its annual safety meeting for employees Sept. 15 at its Sidney terminal. Drivers were addressed by Mike Wilson, Ohio Motor Carrier Enforcement supervisor, who spoke about ways to improve highway safety and avoid violations while the drivers are on the job.

The highlight of the meeting was the recognition of three milestones. Jeff Tedder, a 16-year veteran with the company, received an award for traveling 2 million consecutive miles without an accident. David Wolford, an eight-year veteran, and Terrence Rose, a 16year veteran, received awards for traveling 1 million consecutive miles without an accident.

Each driver received either a trip to Las Vegas or a cruise to the Bahamas, along with a cash gift. Continental Express Inc. is a refrigerated freight carrier that serves primarily the Midwest and Southeast through its four terminals, 272 trucks and 550 trailers. Continental employs 400 people and has terminals throughout the Midwest and Southeast.

DAYTON — As colder weather draws near, Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) reminds customers that it is important to evaluate the condition of their furnaces before turning them on for the winter. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates one in four furnaces has been in operation for 20 years or more and may not be performing at peak efficiency. Other than simply looking at the age of the furnace, it is important to have a trained professional evaluate its performance to ensure it’s operating safely and efficiently. “It’s easy to forget to regularly check your furnace — given most units are housed in basements or garages,” said Colleen Ryan, president of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio. “It is important that a qualified heating con-

tractor performs a regular maintenance check in order to ensure it is working properly. In fact, an annual tuneup can extend the life of your unit and save 3 to 10 percent on heating costs. “ During regular furnace maintenance checks, the technician can calculate the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). This will indicate how much of the energy used by the furnace is actually generating heat to be circulated throughout the home or business and how much heat is escaping through chimneys, windows, doorways, etc. If the levels are dipping below the 80 percent range, repairs or replacement might be in order. The higher the AFUE, the lower the energy bills will be each month. If it is determined that a new furnace is necessary, Vectren offers a $300

rebate toward the purchase of a 95 percent AFUE or higher natural gas furnace. A list of qualifying appliances and rebate forms are available through Vectren’s Conservation Connection on “Vectren’s Conservation Connection programs offer customers a variety of information on energy efficiency tips, appliance rebates and home energy audits,” added Ryan. “You can even sign up to receive e-mails or text messages reminding you to replace your furnace filters.” Additional appliance rebates are available, including natural gas water heaters, boilers and programmable thermostats. Visit or call (866) 240-8476 for complete details on all rebates and energy efficiency tips for the winter heating season.

Controversy surrounds voting hours The Shelby County Board of Elections discussed the issue of weekend hours for voting and other issues, including provisional voting and poll worker training for the November election, during its recent meeting. Board member Jim Thompson brought up a discussion regarding weekend voting hours and the recent ruling regarding that issue, a topic that has been in the news recently. Board Director Dawn Billing told board members that she discussed the issue with legal counsel and with a field representative from the Ohio Secretary of State’s office, but has not received a response. Billing stated that she believed the hours as stated in Directive 2012-35 would still apply and the board would have to make a decision regarding weekend hours for voting. It was noted that the Shelby County Board of Elections office has not been open on Sundays for at least 12 years, but there have been early voting office hours on Friday and Saturday during several previous elections. Thompson asked that the board send a request to the Secretary of State’s office asking what procedures should be in place given the federal court ruling on early voting for the weekend before the election. Thompson stated that he felt it

should be an official request from the Shelby County Board of Elections and not something seen as only a question from a member of the board staff. A staff member has already requested information regarding the issue from the Secretary of State and has not received a response. Because Thompson’s motion did not receive a second, the motion failed. Because the majority of board members in attendance at the meeting did not agree that an official request to the Secretary of State for clarification on office hours should be made, Thompson made a motion that the local board comply with the federal court ruling issued on Aug. 31 regarding weekend hours for early inperson voting and set those hours for the weekend before the election to meet requirements of the equal protection clause of the United States Constitution. The motion failed. Board Chairman Chris Gibbs stated later that the board expects the courts to act on this issue and then for Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted “to provide some direction in less than two weeks” to the local Board of Elections. asked Thompson about provisional changes in voting as a result of Secretary of State Directive 2012-44. Billing


necessary and what the length will be, she will contact board members. Billing told the board there is a need for more absentee envelopes. The envelopes that are not used in this election would be used for next year’s election. The board approved the need for more envelopes. Gibbs told board members he and Billing attended a Rotary Club meeting and it had gone well. He said there were a lot of good questions and said there was one person who volunteered to be a rover for the November election. The board heard an update on the progress of repairing and servicing the silver voting units. A total of 180 units are needed for the county and 60 have been completed. The board members and staff will continue to work on them as they have time. Warnecke said he will contact Rob Joslin, who previously repaired the units, to see if he can tell them where to get clips for the side panels. Warnecke gave the board a report on using the copy machine as a backup to the Ballot on Demand printer. The copier could be used as a backup if there would be an emergency. A trial run will be done at a later date. The copy machine will be set to print ballots to run a test and then returned to its regular format.

The Downtown Façade Rehab amendments allow the city to increase the maximum loan amount in situations in which good cause is shown. The Issue 1 resolution authorizes the city manager to apply to the Ohio’s Public Works Commission for funding from the program which is funded from bond sales. Issue 1 is a competitive program with other Shelby County and Congressional District communities competing for limited funds. Introduced for second readings and action at council’s Oct. 8 meeting were ordinances assessing property owners for the cost of weed and junk removal, banning parking on Wapakoneta Avenue from Russell Road to Interstate 75, and increasing Community Development Block grant appropriation funding by $25,000. A fourth proposed ordinance would authorize the city manager to place temporary traffic control devices under special circumstances

A work station has been set up in Warnecke’s office for a temporary worker to help with the input of absentee ballot requests. Warnecke discussed the cost of buying a laminating machine or going to Staples for signs to be laminated for precincts. The purchase of the machine and laminating materials would be $555 and the cost of laminating at Staples would be $1,345.45. Although there was a motion by Thompson to approve the purchase of a laminator and a second by Baker, Billing noted that she did not feel the need to purchase a laminating machine right now or to laminate the postings because the postings could change. She also noted other costs being faced by the board for the November election. Billing suggested the board review the request next year and see how the budget looks at that time. Warnecke stated he did not have an opinion regarding the purchase; he was reporting the costs. The board voted not to purchase a laminator. Regional Liaison Stewart Kitchen contacted the board before the meeting to tell them he had been in an accident and would be late for the meeting. He was not injured in the accident. Board member Merrill Asher was absent from the meeting.

Jon Baker made a motion to have Shelby County Board of Elections Clerk Trina Riethman work 30 hours a week starting immediately and that extra help be hired as necessary by Billing and Warnecke. The board approved the motion. Billing discussed the number of M100 units that will be assigned to multiprecinct locations. Gibbs suggested that the board vote on the ballot length for November before addressing the M100 issue. It was noted that since the ballot language changed for state Issue 2, it may require some of the county precincts to use two pieces of paper. It was suggested that another option would be to make the length of the ballot 17 inches, with a 16-inch ballot and a 1inch stub. That would allow for the ballot to be on one piece of paper using both sides of the paper. Dan Shebesta was scheduled to be in the board office this week to finalize the ballot with the changes and the board should have more information at that time. Gibbs suggested that the board wait until then and hold a special board meeting to discuss the options. The board wants to try and keep the ballot to one piece of paper so there is no confusion for voters. When programming is completed and Billing knows how many pieces of paper will be

It includes: • Improvements at the treatment plant that would increase wet weather flow capacity. • Collection system improvements to reduce sanitary sewer overflows. • Develop an Inflow and infiltration program to remove sources of clean water from both public and private sources. “A great job,” Vice Mayor Mardie Milligan complemented both Schultz and his treatment plant staff.

said the forms that are needed would be printed at the office and distributed to each precinct. Gibbs stated that the board had previously voted on the issue. He noted that before any voter is given a ballot at a multiprecinct location, they need to call the office and confirm the address and the proper precinct. The voter will be informed again of the proper precinct and that it has been verified again. If the voter still refuses to go to the proper precinct, the poll worker will not be at fault. Billing told the board about poll worker training dates and times. One training session will be for new poll workers only. Priscilla Wilt will help with the daytime training hours and the office staff will help with the evening hours. Deputy Director Phil Warnecke discussed the status of poll workers and talked about the outcome of recruiting from the Senior Center and from some precincts. It was noted that all Shelby County high schools have been contacted regarding “Youth at the Booth.” Billing and Warnecke told the board there is a need for additional help in the office prior to Oct. 4. There is a need for a clerk on a regular basis and for part-time help to put labels on envelopes for the 1,200-plus absentee ballot requests. Board member

Africa is also a rich tapestry of peoples, cultures, religions, and languages. An estimated 800 to 1,700 languages are spoken on the continent. Swahili, a language of East Africa, is spoken by the largest number of people. Besides the native African languages, English, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, and Arabic are also commonly spoken. In some places the common language is what’s called a “lingua franca,” or a mixture of several languages. Africa is home to the world’s largest desert, the

Sahara, which covers 3.5 million square miles and grows a little every year. It is also the home of the world’s longest river, the Nile. In Africa’s rain forests live gorillas, chimpanzees, monkeys, wild pigs, and large red antelopes called bongos. Crocodiles, hippopotamuses, lizards, snakes, and birds, such as flamingos, pelicans, herons, storks, and kingfishers, live in the continent’s tropical waters. On the grasslands roam herds of elephant, rhinoceros, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, and antelope, as well as the lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals that eat them. Although Europeans colonized the coasts of Africa as early as the 15th and 16th centuries, the interior

of the continent was not explored by outsiders until the 19th century. What lay in the interior of Africa was a mystery to the Europeans, so they called Africa “the Dark Continent.” But really it was nothing of the kind. The African people had thriving cultures based on tribal, mostly nomadic, lifestyles. By the 20th century, though, Africa was almost entirely colonized by Europeans, and it wasn’t until after World War II that most of the African states regained their independence. Tribal differences, language differences, unstable governments, and a shortage of land good for growing food have combined to cause many, many problems for the people of Africa.

Botkins, Russia golfers capture sectional titles Fairlawn’s Everett is medalist The boys golf teams from Botkins and Russia captured Division III sectional champion onships Tuesday in action at Arcanum and Greenville. Botkins was first at Beechwood in Arcanum with a Everett 339, the best score of the day by any county team. The Trojans got a 79 from Connor Bornhorst, 83 from Roger Miller, 85 from Cory Kies and 91 from Nick Okuley. Also qualifying as a team was Fairlawn, which was runner-up to the Trojans at Beechwood with a 341. Trey Everett was the tournament medalist with a 76, Anthony Gillem shot an 85, Ryan Lessing 86 and Zach Rogers 94.

Qualifying as individual were Lehman’s John Copella with an 80 and Houston’s Jaron Howard with an 87. • At Turtle Creek in Greenville, Russia took first with a 342. The Raiders were led by Treg Francis and Austin Tebbe, both with 84, while Luke Dapore and Bryce Dues both shot 87. No other information from the tournament was available. The district will be held Oct. 4 in Middletown. • In the Division II sectional at Fox’s Den in Celina, two Minster golfers qualified for the district. Marissa Conrad shot an 86 and Claire Fischer 92 to advance for the Lady Wildcats. The three qualifying teams were Lima Catholic, St. Henry and Lincolnview.

‘Crushing defeat’ for Sidney boys VANDALIA — Longtime Sidney boys soccer coach Eric Harlamert called it “the most crushing defeat I’ve ever had” Tuesday night night afer Vandalia scored three times in the last nine minutes of the game to win 3-2. The loss hurt Sidney’s chances of a sixth straight Greater Wesern Ohio Conference North title. The Jackets fall to 2-1 in the North and 63-2 overall. Sidney dominated the game, scoring twice in the first half but only getting credit for one goal because of an offsides call. Still, the goal, which came from Preston Heath off an assist by Brady Gaylor, gave the Jackets a 1-0 lead at the half. Sidney then scored again with 31:29 remaining in the

second half when Dustin Lorenzo played the ball to Gaylor, who took on the last defender and the goalie and scored to make it 2-0. The clock wound all the way down to 9:00 remaining when a fluke goal got the Aviators back in it. Sidney actually scored a goal on itself. “We knocked the ball into our own goal trying to clear it,” said Harlamert. Vandalia then scored with 4:10 left to tie the game and with 2:431 remaining to win it. “That’s a tough loss to take,” said Harlamert. “We were basically playing for the league title because if we win this one, our chances are pretty good.” Sidney also lost the junior varsity game, 2-0.

Reds hurt Brewers’ playoff hopes, 4-2 CINCINNATI (AP) — Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL’s top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they’ll be without their manager for the rest of the week. The Brewers dropped backto-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 3¬Ω games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot. The 2011 NL Central champions had played their way back into contention for the postseason by winning 25 of 32. They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the division title on Saturday night and rested four of their regulars the following day. Interim manager Chris Speier went back to his usual lineup on Tuesday. Manager Dusty Baker met his players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat at a Chicago hospital last week. Speier will manage the series against Milwaukee and three games in Pittsburgh during the weekend, giving the 63-yearold Baker time to rest. Doctors expect Baker to

make a full recovery. He could resume managing the final series in St. Louis next week. The Brewers couldn’t do much against Cueto (19-9), who is rounding back into form as the playoffs approach. Cueto got his 17th win in August, then dropped three straight subpar starts. He gave up 14 runs in only 15 13 innings during those three games, raising questions about whether the righthander was tiring out. He was back in form last Thursday, pitching six shutout innings in Chicago for his 18th win. On Tuesday, the right-hander didn’t allow a runner to second base until Carlos Gomez doubled with two outs in the fifth inning. Jean Segura singled to score Gomez, but was thrown out trying to advance to third on the throw to the plate. Cueto gave up two runs and five hits, including Aramis Ramirez’s solo homer. Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his 36th save in 41 chances. It was his first time in the closer role since Sept. 10, when he developed a tired shoulder. The Reds have 93 wins for only the second time since 1975-76, when the Big Red Machine put together back-toback World Series titles.

Miami East hands Lehman first loss Miami East handed Lehman its first setback of the season Tuesday in high school girls soccer, edging the Lady Cavs 10 at Lehman. Lehman was ranked No. 2 in this week’s Miami Valley rankings for Division III, and Miami East No. 5 in the same division. Lehman is now 8-1 on the year with another tough test coming Saturday at home against Troy Christian at 11 a.m. Miami East goes to 10-1. “We made one mistake and they took advantage of it,” said Lehman coach Tony Schroeder. “It was a wellplayed game, and we had our opportunities. We had three shots go off the post.” The only goal of the

game came with 5:00 left in the first half and was set up by a corner kick by the Lady Vikings. Emily Holicki found the ball in front of the goal and finished it off. “The ball was just laying there,” said Schroeder. “And we didn’t clear it out.” Grace Lehman’s Frantz had eight saves in goal, and Miami East’s Maddie Linn had five saves. Lehman outshot the Lady Vikings 16-13. “I thought Elizabeth Edwards had a nice game in the middle and Karly Baird played well and had a couple good attacks from the back row for us,” said Schroeder. Lehman’s junior varsity team tied Miami East 1-1. Lehman’s goal came from Alexis Grise.

Jet booters blank Eagles Fairlawn routed Christian Academy in soccer Tuesday 10-0 to go to 8-2 on the year. Trey Everett, after taking medalist honors in the sectional golf tournament earlier in the day, scored five goals to lead the Jets, and An-

thony Gillem added two goals and four assists. Ryan Lessing, Austin Doak and Zane Shipman all had goals, and Lessing, Luke Brautigam and Zach Boatwright added assists, with Boatwright having two of them.

It must have been quite a helpless feeling for Fort Loramie coach Matt Burgbacher Friday night, and not just because of the weather. His Redskins had two turnovers in the early stages of the third quarter that were both turned into touchdowns by Waynesfield for a 2814 lead. But they got a blocked punt returned for a touchdown at the end of the third quarter, and there’s nothing like a blocked punt for a touchdown to get the momentum on your side. But Waynesfield, a ball-control team, ran their game plan to perfection in the final period, playing a great game of keepaway to protect a 28-20 lead and get the win. As was stated in Monday’s paper, Waynesfield drove 75 yards and ran 9:30 off the clock to start the final period. The Tigers didn’t score, but Loramie had just 2:30 left when it took over at its own 7-yard line. What was not in Monday’s story was that when the Redskins took over at that point, they had run just three plays the entire second half. “They executed their game plan to a T,” said Burgbacher. “I thought they played an almost perfect game, controlling the ball and the clock.” The loss dropped Loramie in the computer rankings, but the Redskins are still sixth this week.

Halfway home

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Once he’s handed the ball on Thursday night, Trent Richardson knows what’s next. Hall of Fame-level contact. “Ray Lewis is going to come at me,” the Browns rookie running back said, “and I’m going to come right back at him. That’s football.” Richardson, quarterback Brandon Weeden and Cleveland’s other rookies are about to face the toughest test of their budding careers when the winless Browns visit Baltimore, one of the league’s most hostile stadiums where the Ravens have won 12 straight, 20 of 21 and where visitors are not welcomed. Play at your own risk. “You have to be on your ‘A’ game and be ready to rock and roll,” Weeden said Wednesday. Or, get rocked and rolled ‚Äî on national TV. It’s tough to play on the road in a normal week, but the Browns

49 straight points Sidney got off to a sluggish start against Dayton Belmont on Saturday night at Sidney Memorial Stadium, trailing 14-0 before a late second quarter field goal got the Yellow Jackets on the board before intermission. The visitors would not score again and the home team would add 46 more in the second half for a 49-14 victory. While 46 points in one half is close to the school record, the standard of 50 set against Bellefontaine in 1962 remains safe. Sidney won that encounter 74-10 at Julia Lamb Stadium.

Spillers sets record Andre Spillers tallied 11 of Sidney’s 49 points against Belmont including two field goals and five extra points. His 11 points kicking is a Sidney single game record. Two players had scored nine. He now has five fielders on the season, one short of the school record set by Brandon Koester in 2001. He joins five others who have booted a pair of three-pointers in a game, a feat first accomplished by Bob Potter back in 1921 against Bellefontaine. Spillers is somewhat unique in that he’s anything but a kicking speAndre is a cialist; mainstay on the Sidney defensive line.

have only had two days to prepare for the Ravens (2-1), who are coming off a last-second win over New England on Sunday night. Baltimore has won eight straight over Cleveland under coach John Harbaugh and some of the Ravens have posted some of their best stats at the expense of the Browns. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has never lost to Cleveland, going 8-0 the past four seasons. Safety Ed Reed has more interceptions (10), return yards (356) and touchdowns on picks (three) versus the Browns than any other opponent, and running back Ray Rice has averaged 118.5 yards per game against Cleveland. And when they’re at home, the Ravens are a predatory bird. “It’s one of the steeper tests in the NFL when you talk about playing in Baltimore,” Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas said. “And it’s a night

wood, which has admittedly played a tougher schedule. Piqua, Troy, and Vandalia all stand at 2-3 while Greenville is 1-4. After consecutive winless campaigns, the Yellow Jackets have a shot at finishing 5-5 or better. They visit Troy on Friday.

school games Friday, the second time this year games have fallen victim to rain and storms. One of the most interesting situations developed in the Columbus area between Reynoldsburg and Pickerington Central. Central scored with 1:12 remaining in the game to tie the score at 20-20. All that remained was kicking the extra point. But that’s when the lightning started flashing in the sky, forcing the game to be postponed before the potential tiebreaking kick could be attempted. The game was suspended Friday, and completed Saturday morning at 10 a.m. The first play Saturday, the kick, was good and Central won the game 21-20.

Here comes Versailles Versailles built momentum with a late comeback win at Anna, then sprung a big 24-14 upset over Marion Local last Friday to stand 3-2 at the halfway point. The Tigers will be favored the next two weeks (Parkway, New Bremen) before finishing with Delphos St. John’s, Minster, and St. Henry. That trio will determine if they make the Division V playoffs, as they currently stand 11th. New Versailles head coach Adam Miller was on Fort Loramie’s coaching staff last year while teaching at Versailles.

Tipp dominates Tipp City, coached by the father of Fort Loramie head coach Matt Burgbacher, has outscored its five opponents 241-20 en route to a 5-0 record. Charlie’s bunch dominates the Central Buckeye Conference and is now classified in Division II.

We’ve mentioned here before that Tipp now belongs with the schools that surround it geographically rather than where the Red Devils currently reside with the likes of Bellefontaine, Tecumseh, Urbana and many smaller members. Consider a league whose core would include Sidney, Piqua, Troy, Greenville, Vandalia, and Tipp City. Especially in an era of $3-$4 gasoline, this is an idea whose time has come. The Tipp athletic is solid program throughout both genders in numerous sports.

Fell’s team loses 62-55 Former Sidney coach Kevin Fell, still the only coach to take a Sidney team to the postseason, watched Friday night as his Elyria squad put up 55 points. But that wasn’t enough against North Royalton, which won the game 62-55. The combined 117 points set a new record at Elyria’s Byers Field. Elyria is now 3-2, but Fell might need to shore up his defense. They are giving up 30 points a game.

Blame it on the refs The final play in the Monday night game has taken up a lot of space on sports talk shows, and even on news channels because of the NFL using replacement refs while the others are striking. Might have been a bad call, and yes, the offensive pass interference was missed. But no one said anything about the Packer defenders — why not just knock the pass down? Game over, no controversy. The players’ and coaches’ attitudes toward these replacement referees is, in a word, shameful.

game and on national TV, so the crowd is going to be that much louder and more into it. It’s going to be difficult to hear in the huddle and on the line. Throw in a great defense and the Hall of Fame guys that they have and it adds up to a tough task.” There’s no doubt that the odds are stacked high against the Browns, who are 13-point underdogs. But Richardson believes they can hold their own against an AFC North power. “It’s another ballgame for us,” he said. “People say that we don’t have a chance, but I know we’ve got a chance. If everybody straps up their jersey, step up their pads, we’ve still got a chance against them. I don’t care what they say. Lot

of folks sleep on us. When people fall asleep on us, that’s when we come with our A-game.” Cleveland is coming off a C-minus performance against Buffalo. After falling behind 140, the Browns rallied but came up short and lost their ninth straight game dating to last season. As the final seconds ticked off, thousands of Bills fans celebrated like they were back home in Orchard Park. Fortunately for the Browns, the short week has allowed them to move on quickly from a stinging defeat. “Physically, guys are a little sore,” Weeden said. “Mentally, it’s nice because you want to play as fast as you can after a loss. If you win, you’d rather have some time off.”

Notre Dame opts out of UM series ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Notre Dame is opting out of its series with Michigan, meaning the last scheduled game between college football's programs winningest will take place in 2014. A letter from Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick to Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon cancelling games in 2015-2017 was obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday through a Freedom of Information Act request. Brandon told the AP he was handed the letter on the field in South Bend, Ind., about an hour before Saturday night's game. The Fighting Irish recently decided to move to the Atlantic Coast Conference in every sport except football and hockey, though the football team will play five games a year against league opponents, starting no later than 2015. "While this move is a necessary precaution as we begin the process of meeting our new scheduling commitment to the ACC," Swarbrick wrote in his letter to Brandon, "please know that Notre Dame very much values its relationship with Michigan and we look forward to working with you to ensure that our great football rivalry can continue." Brandon said he hopes to work with Swarbrick on another contract to extend the series.

IT’S A FACT: WHEN RURAL OHIO VOTERS TURN OUT TO VOTE, OHIO VALUES WIN EVERY TIME! FACT: In 2004, George Bush was carried to victory by rural Ohio voter turnout, even though he was outspent 6–1. FACT: Amazingly, Bush lost five of six major Ohio cities, but still won election because rural voters showed up at the polls! FACT: In 2004 Ohio voters also stood against heavy support in those cities for same-sex marriage, and voted in overwhelming numbers to define marriage as only between one man and one woman in Ohio’s constitution.

RED=Republican BLUE=Democrat

How Ohio voted in 2004

FACT: A very serious effort is underway to repeal Ohio’s marriage amendment. And the country stands at a perilous crossroads with the very future of marriage, Life, and our core liberties of free speech and freedom of religion hanging in the balance. FACT: Once again, rural Ohio voters will determine who wins Ohio. But you must show up to vote! Please commit to ask your family and friends to vote. Please commit to getting first time voters registered. Will you make the difference in Ohio?

Sisters’ quilt project preserves family heirlooms BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN

But no work had to be redone on the tops. The women were astonished to see how precise their great-grandmother’s handiwork was. The 1/4-inch stitches were perfect on every quilt. There were no broken stitches. And each quilt was perfectly square. “There were some places where you could tell they didn’t have enough fabric,” Puthoff said,” so they’d sew little pieces together. They’d use every little scrap you could get.” The work gave the two women a connection to their ancestors they had not felt before. “I got to looking at pictures of her and my grandpa. She became a person,” Puthoff said. “It sparks an interest in your history,” DeVelvis added.

There’s something comforting about a quilt. Quilts evoke feelings of warmth, coziness, home, care, simplicity and love. Quilts made by great-grandmothers mean even more. They summon a connection to the past, an acknowledgement that home and love can transcend time and reach into the future. That’s why two Sidney sisters cherish a quilt that was pieced by their great-grandmother for her grandson, their father. It’s why they tracked down the five other quilt tops she had made for her five other grandchildren. It’s why they, some 80 years later, finished her long-ago work and quilted all five for their cousins. The six bed covers were recently displayed at the Shelby County Applefest Quilt Show.

Created label

Slept under quilt Linda DeVelvis and Charlotte Puthoff, as children, had slept under the quilt that had been made by Emma Guckes Harp. Emma had thought to give a quilt top to each of the children of Harry and Agnes Harp, as each child married. The third child of Harry and Agnes was Lester, DeVelvis’ and Puthoff ’s father. His wife, Helen, had their quilt finished by a neighbor, Jenny Carmony, in 1952. Emma never saw it. She had died in 1941. “That quilt is used,” said DeVelvis. “You can tell it had a lot of use! And it was the one that got the most attention at the quilt show!”

LINDA DEVELVIS (left) and her sister, Charlotte Puthoff, display six quilts pieced by their great-grandmother and quilted by them 80 years later.

They took just under a year to track down and complete all the quilts. On the back of each one, they created a label with a picture of their great-grandmother and information that spelled out the genealogy in the family that had brought that particular quilt into the possession of its current owner. Emma’s grandchildren were Dick, Lester, and Henry Harp, Ruth Elsner, Helen Lynch and Doris Conrad. Their quilts are now owned by Patti Keifer, of Piqua, daughter of Dick; Puthoff, daughter of Lester; Tom and Jeanie Harp, of Sidney, son and daughter-inlaw of Henry; Clark, daughter of Ruth; Connie Lynch and Becky Young, both of Middletown, daughters of Helen; and Sara Moorehead, of Sidney, granddaughter of Doris.

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a sexy, flirtatious day for your sign. (Do flirt a little with someone.) You’ll be aggressive in sports and in playful activities. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel very firm about getting your way at home today, especially regarding decorating ideas or how to make things look better. You have standards, and you intend to maintain them. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You are unusually forward and assertive in all your dealings with others today, especially with siblings, neighbors and daily contacts. This could work well for you; then again, it might not! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re very firm about going after what you want in terms of earning money today. Similarly, you’ll be very specific about what you want if you are purchasing something. Oh yeah! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel passionate today. You want something to happen. You want life to rattle your cage, especially with romantic adventure. Well, good luck — something might thrill you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You feel driven about certain things today; however, you’re not going to show others or tip your hand. (But you certainly do have a hidden agenda.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Group activities, especially sports and physical activities appeal highly to you today. You’ll enjoy an easy camaraderie with others, even though you want to win! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might be attracted to your boss or someone older or richer today. (This could be a serious crush.) Just don’t do anything you will regret later. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’re excited about travel possibilities. (What’s new?) Your enthusiasm will make you push hard to gain the advantage in publishing, the media and anything that has to do with higher education. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You definitely will fight for your rights and defend your best interests when it comes to discussions about inheritances or how to divide anything or deal with shared property. You mean business! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with partners and close friends are flirtatious and possibly a tad tense. You have strong emotions today, but they could go either way. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because you’re so excited about something at work, you will move mountains to make sure it happens. Quite likely, you’re trying to improve the appearance of something. YOU BORN TODAY You’re versatile and multitalented. Although you are warm and friendly, in a deeper way, you are reserved and distant. (You’re very sensitive.) You value the support of good friends. Your life is often full of highs and lows with respect to your career. In the year ahead, a major change could take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2003. Birthdate of: Gwyneth Paltrow, actress; Avril Lavigne, singer; Randy Bachman, musician. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

One panel of experts declares that a sufficient blood level of vitamin D is 30 ng/ml, and a deficiency occurs at 15. The Institute of Medicine feels that 20 ng/ml constitutes deficiency. You are so close to the 30 ng/ml ideal that I personally wouldn’t recommend you take high replacement doses of D. Furthermore, you make a valid point: A normal calcium pretty much assures that you have enough vitamin D on board. My advice would be different if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Today you answered a question about nighttime leg cramps.

You referred to the reader’s condition as restless leg syndrome. A doctor finally prescribed Mirapex for me, and it works like a miracle. I hope you mention this to your readers. —W.G. ANSWER: The entire topic of the date you mentioned was nighttime leg cramps. I mentioned the treatments only for that problem. At the very end, a reference to the booklet on nighttime leg cramps and restless leg syndrome was mentioned. They’re two very distinct conditions in the same booklet, but they have distinctive approaches to treatment. Restless leg syndrome responds to Mirapex (pramipexole); leg cramps do not.

needs can be met. DEAR ABBY: The other day when I went jogging, I met a guy just as I stopped to take a water break. He started flirting and I was too tired to tell him to leave, so I decided to humor him until I cooled down enough to resume my jog. He asked me basic questions trying to get to know me, and when I told him I was a college student, he asked for my GPA. When I told him it was none of his business, he laughed and asked what my problem was. He said no one else had complained when he asked, and he didn’t mean to pry. I still felt he was being rude, so I said goodbye and jogged off before he could say anything.

Abby, I wasn’t trying to hide a low GPA, but I don’t think it’s something to tell people in a first meeting. Is it normal for people to ask others what their GPA is — especially if they just met? — COED IN BOSTON DEAR CO-ED: When someone says he or she is a student, the question that usually follows is, “Where are you studying?” or “What’s your major?” It’s not, “What’s your GPA?” which seems like a not-so-subtle way of asking whether you’re a good student or not. His attempt to make conversation was clumsy — and because he said the question is one he asks routinely, let’s hope he learns from his encounter with you and scratches it off his list of pickup lines.

Monday’s puzzle solution

Sudoku puzzles also appear on the Sidney Daily News website at



OSLO, Norway (AP) — Luck can strike more than once. A family from western Norway has hit the lottery jackpot for the third time in six years when the son won more than 12 million kroner ($2 million) earlier this month. He added to the successes of his father and his sister, who had also picked seven correct

numbers to bring in winnings of more than 8 million kroner each in 2006 and 2010. The Norsk Tipping AS lottery company said Tuesday it has had cases when one person has won the lottery twice but that the teenager’s recent success was Norway’s first reported occurrence of three members of the same family separately winning the lottery.
