‘Man of the people’ dies Former Superintendent McGee touched many lives BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN

For a full weather report, turn to Page 4B.


A much-loved, much respected former Sidney City Schools superintendent has died in Mercer Island, Wash. Roger C. McGee, 88, passed away Saturday. People he worked with in Sidney, where he served as superintendent from 1964 to 1977, have

high praise for their former colleague. “Roger McGee is an icon in the Sidney City School District,” said current Superintendent John Scheu. “He set the standard for other superintendents to follow with his integrity, honesty, work ethic, and commitment to Sidney City Schools. He was quite possibly the most revered and respected school administrator Sidney has ever had — at least since the time

he became superintendent. He hired me to begin my teaching career in Sidney in 1972, as a high school social studies teacher and JV basketball coach. When I first applied for an administrative job in Sidney and was not selected, he made a point to encourage me to not give up; I had a future in Sidney; and there would be something eventually open; and the year after he left, I became an assistant prinSee MCGEE/Page 5A

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney listens to Mike Rowe, host of television show “Dirty Jobs” during a campaign stop at American Spring Wire, Wednesday in Bedford Heights.

Battling it out in Ohio Obama, Romney fight for voters BY STEVE PEOPLES The Associated Press WESTERVILLE (AP) — Slipping in states that could sink his presidential bid, Republican Mitt Romney declared Wednesday that “I care about the people of America” and can do more than President Barack Obama to im-

prove their lives. In an all-day Ohio duel, Obama scoffed that a challenger who calls half the nation “victims” was unlikely to be of much help. Romney’s approach reflected what he is up against: a widening Obama lead in polls in key states such as Ohio, the backlash from a leaked video in which he disparages Obama

supporters as government-dependent people who see themselves as victims, and a campaign imperative to make his policy plans more plain. With under six weeks to go, and just one week before the first big debate, Obama’s campaign reveled in the latest public polling — but tried to crush any sense of overconfidence. “If

we need to pass out horse blinders to all of our staff, we will do that,” said campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki. The day’s setting was Ohio, where Obama’s momentum has seemed to be growing. It’s also a state no Republican has won the White House without carrying. See CAMPAIGN/Page 6A

County unemployment Comer, Harford selected rate drops in August Riverside queen, king Reflects loss in size of labor force Shelby County’s unemployment rate dropped in August, but the number reflects a loss in the size of the labor force rather than an increase in jobs — in fact, the official number of people employed in the county decreased from July to August, according to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Bureau of Labor Market Information. Shelby County’s unemployment rate was 6.5 percent in August, down from 6.9 percent in July. The size of the labor force decreased from 24,400 to 24,200, with the number of people employed also down, from 22,700 to 22,600. It was an exact reversal of the July numbers. The number of people employed rose by 200 in July from June, with the same increase in the size of the overall labor pool. There were 1,600 estimated unemployed in August, down by 100 from July. Unemployment for August 2011 was at 8.8 percent. Ohio’s unemployment, seasonally adjusted, was 7.2 percent in August, unchanged from July’s, while the national rate was 8.1 percent, down from 8.3 percent. County figures are not seasonally adjusted. Among the state’s 88 counties, the August unemployment rates ranged from a low of 4.1 percent in Mercer County to a high of 12.1 percent in Pike County. With Pike ranked No. 1 in unemployment and Mercer ranked No. 88, Shelby County ranked 59th highest in unemployment in the state. Rates decreased in 83 of 88 counties, without seasonal adjustments. In August, the comparable rate for Ohio was 6.8 percent. Eight counties had unemployment rates at or below 5.5 percent in August. Other than Mercer, these were Holmes, 4.5; Delaware, 4.9; Auglaize and Putnam, 5.2; Geauga, 5.3; Union, 5.4; and Erie, 5.5.

Kentucky man held after running Obama roadblock LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — An eastern Kentucky man has been deby federal tained authorities after allegedly running through a roadblock while carrying multiple firearms during President Barack Obama’s visit to the Cincinnati region this month. A federal criminal complaint unsealed in Covington on Wednesday says Kerry T. Prater of West Liberty had three weapons and at least 500 rounds of ammunition when he ran through an Erlanger police roadblock on Sept. 17. Obama’s motorcade passed through northern Kentucky that day on the way to Cincinnati. The complaint, writ-

ten by Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Agent Ronald Young, says Prater has a lengthy criminal history and had been previously declared mentally ill. Prater’s listed attorney, Kerry Neff of Covington, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday afternoon. Prater is scheduled to make an initial appearance in federal court in Covington on Friday. Young wrote that police erected the roadblock that afternoon. Air Force One landed at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport in Hebron, Ky., about 16 miles south of Cincinnati. suspect ran The through the roadblock

and was forced off the road by an Erlanger police officer, Young wrote. “Prater refused to exit the vehicle and (the officer) removed him from the vehicle,” Young wrote. After Prater was out of the car, the police officer saw a partially concealed .38 caliber revolver on the front passenger floorboard, Young wrote. The officer then found a .223 caliber rifle hidden under a towel on the rear floorboard with four loaded magazines and 500 additional rounds of ammunition, Young wrote.

IN THIS May 12, 1961, file photo, Andy Williams performs a song on a television show. Emmy-winning TV host and "Moon River" crooner Williams died Tuesday night at his home in Branson, Mo., following a year-long battle with bladder cancer. He was 84.

‘Moon River’ crooner dies BY JIM SALTER The Associated Press BRANSON, Mo. (AP) — For the older — OK, squarer — side of the generation gap, Andy Williams was part of the soundtrack of the 1960s and ’70s, with easy-listening hits like “Moon River,” the “Love Story” theme and “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” from his beloved Christmas TV specials. The singer known for his wholesome, middleAmerica appeal was the antithesis of the counterculture. “The old cliche says that if you can remember the 1960s, you weren’t there,” Williams once recalled. “Well, I was there all right, but my memory of them is blurred — not by any drugs I took but by the relentless pace of the schedule I set myself.” The 84-year-old entertainer, who died Tuesday night at his Branson home following a yearlong battle with bladder cancer, outlasted many of the decade’s rock stars and fellow crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He remained on the charts into the 1970s and continued to perform into his 80s. Williams became a major star in 1956, the same year as Elvis Presley, with the Sinatra-like swing number “Canadian Sunset.” For a time, he was pushed into such Presley imitations as “Lips of Wine” and the No. 1 smash “Butterfly.” But he mostly stuck to what he called his “natural style” and kept it up throughout his career. In 1970, when even Sinatra had temporarily retired, Williams was in the top 10 with the theme from “Love Story,” the Oscarwinning tearjerker. He had 18 gold records, three platinum and five Grammy award nominations. Williams was also the first host of the live Grammy awards telecast and hosted the show for seven consecutive years, beginning in 1971. Movie songs became a specialty, including his signature “Moon River.” The longing Johnny Mercer-Henry Mancini ballad was his most famous song, even though he never released it as a single because his record company feared such lines as “my huckleberry friend” were too confusing and old-fashioned for teens. The song was first performed by Audrey Hepburn in the cherished 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” but Mancini thought “Moon River” ideal for Williams, who recorded it in “pretty much one take” and also

sang it at the 1962 Academy Awards. Although “Moon River” was covered by countless artists and became a hit single for Jerry Butler, Williams made the song his personal brand. In fact, he insisted on it. “When I hear anybody else sing it, it’s all I can to do stop myself from shouting at the television screen, ‘No! That’s my song!’” Williams wrote in his 2009 memoir titled, fittingly, “Moon River and Me.” At a Wednesday matinee at Williams’ Moon River Theatre in Branson, a performer told the crowd that Williams would have wanted the show to go on, and it did. The first show after his death included a moving video of him performing “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.” “It was very emotional, very sad,” said Barbara Cox of Atlanta, who came to Branson on vacation. “We’ve lost a great man.” Because of illness, Williams had not performed in several months. He had been a constant presence on television with “The Andy Williams Show,” which lasted in various formats through the 1960s and into 1971. It won three Emmys and featured Williams alternately performing his stable of hits and bantering with guest stars. It was on that show that Williams — who launched his own career as part of an all-brother quartet — introduced the world to another cleancut act — the original four singing Osmond Brothers of Utah. Four decades later, the Osmonds and Williams would find themselves in close proximity again, sharing Williams’ theater in Branson. Williams did book some rock and soul acts, including the Beach Boys, the Temptations and Smokey Robinson. On one show, in 1970, Williams sang “Heaven Help Us All” with Ray Charles, Mama Cass and a thenlittle known Elton John, a vision to Williams in his rhinestone glasses and black cape. But Williams liked him and his breakthrough hit “Your Song” enough to record it himself. For many families, Williams and his music were a holiday tradition. His annual Christmas specials continued long after his show ended, featuring Williams dressed in colorful sweaters singing favorites that almost always included “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” a song written for Williams that became a holiday standard.


Sidney Daily News,Thursday, September 27, 2012

CAMPAIGN Romney, eager to project confidence and brush aside suggestions that he was faltering, went after working-class voters outside Columbus and Cleveland before rolling to Toledo. Obama rallied college crowds at Bowling Green State University and Kent State University, reminding Ohioans their state allows them to start cast ballots next week. Early voting has already begun in more than two dozen other states. For Romney, in his appearances and in a new TV ad in which he appeals straight to the camera, it was time for plain talk to contrast himself with Obama, and to mince no words about his expectations. “There are so many people in our country who are hurting right now. I want to help them. I know what it takes,” Romney told the crowd in Westerville. “I care about the people of America, and the difference between me and Barack Obama is I know what to do.” Asked in an interview about his ability to empathize with ordinary Americans, Romney cited the health care law he championed while governor of Massachusetts. It’s a topic Romney usually doesn’t raise because Obama cites the initiative as the basis for his own health care overhaul. Conservatives despise what they call “Obamacare” — Romney has vowed to repeal and replace it if elected — and tend to oppose the idea of universal health coverage. “Don’t forget — I got everybody in my state insured,” Romney told NBC News while in Toledo. “One hundred percent of the kids in our state had health insurance. I don’t think there’s anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record.” That message so late in the campaign — a presidential nominee declaring his concern for all the people of the country — was part of his widening effort to rebound from his caught-on-video comments at a fundraiser. In those comments, made last May but only recently revealed, Romney said “47 percent of the people” pay no federal income tax, will vote for Obama no matter what, see themselves as victims, think the government must care for them and do not “take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” New opinion polls, conducted after the video became public, show Obama opening up apparent leads over Romney in battleground states, including Ohio and Virginia. And majorities of voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania say Romney’s policies would favor the rich over the middle class or the poor. Specifically in Ohio, two surveys show the president crossing the 50 percent mark among likely voters. A Washington Post poll found Obama ahead 52 percent to 44 percent among those most likely to turn out, and a Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll showed a 10-point Obama lead among definite voters. Noting anew the Romney video comments, Obama said Wednesday: “We understand that America is not about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us together, as one nation, as one people.” And he added: “You can’t make it happen if

From Page 1

you write off half the nation before you take office.” Romney was showing signs of picking up his pace, and he did not mince words about his expectations. “Were we to re-elect President Obama there is no question in my mind we’d face four more difficult years,” he said. “If, instead I — no, instead, when I become president, we’re going to get this economy growing again, we’re going to do the things that ignite this economy.” Romney scheduled a blizzard of interviews with ABC, CBS and NBC, his second round of broadcast network appearances in three days after weeks of ignoring their requests. He also did interviews Tuesday with Fox News and CNN. “I’m very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls,” he told ABC. “But frankly, at this early stage, polls go up, polls go down.” The new Romney TV ad, at 60 seconds, is a longer and softer approach in which he speaks about people struggling to pay for food and gas with falling incomes. At one point on Wednesday, the two candidates spoke from different sections of northern Ohio at the same time, their scenery as different as their message. At a factory in Bedford Heights, Romney appeared on a stage surrounded by visual evidence of Ohio’s manufacturing base — giant coils of steel wire, metal beams, yellow “caution” signs — and spoke as machines whirred in the background. He appeared with Mike Rowe, an everyman TV personality and pitchman. Obama appeared at two packed college basketball arenas, delivering his message first to a boisterous crowd of more than 5,000 at Bowling Green and then to 6,000 screaming supporters at Kent State. He said a student who introduced him broke his wrist during a game of ultimate Frisbee. Exhorting the crowd to vote, he said, “You got to play through injuries.” The campaigns tried, too, for footholds on other fronts. Both sides kept up their attempts to paint each other as weak in dealing with China, efforts aimed at wooing support from workingclass voters whose jobs might suffer from imports from China. Romney also focused Wednesday on interest paid on the national debt, a subject he hasn’t regularly discussed in his standard campaign speech. His comments came after a Washington Post poll showed the federal debt and deficit are the one set of issues where he has an advantage over Obama with likely voters. Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan, took a sharper approach. He told radio host Sean Hannity that Obama was using hollow tactics to paint his opponents as evil. “He’s basically trying to say ‘If you want any security in your life stick with me. If you go with these Republicans they’re going to feed you to the wolves. It’s going to be a dog-eat-dog society,’” Ryan said. In recent weeks, Romney has lost his polling edge on the economy generally, with more people saying they now trust Obama to fix the nation’s economic woes.

Ohio governor signs 5 bills shoring up public pensions BY ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich signed a package of bills Wednesday aimed at shoring up Ohio’s five public pension funds and praised the rare bipartisanship that secured their passage. “We’ve got plenty of time to fight on lots of stuff,” said Kasich, a Republican. “But there are some absolutely critical things that have to be done to make sure that people are going to be in good shape.” The legislation makes changes to funds covering some 1.8 million retirees, future retirees and their families. They include increases to some premiums, reduced payouts and tighter retirement eligibility requirements for funds covering teachers, police, troopers and other public workers.

The bills cleared the GOP-controlled Legislature two weeks ago with unanimous votes on all but one measure. The package of bills is aimed at keeping the funds solvent. The affected funds are: Ohio Public Employee Retirement System, State Teachers Retirement System, School Employees Retirement System, Ohio Highway Patrol Retirement System and the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund. Republican Senate President Tom Niehaus and Senate Democratic Leader Eric Kearney cosponsored the bills. The measures will take effect Jan. 7. Employee contribution rates would be gradually increased by increments from 10 percent of salary to 12.25 percent for those belonging to the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund, and from 10 percent to 14 percent for members of the State Teach-

ers Retirement System. Members of OPERS and the School Employees Retirement System would not see an increase in contributions. The Ohio Highway Patrol Retirement System board could adjust member contributions from 10 percent to up to 14 percent of salary. At Wednesday’s bill signing, Kasich congratulated the funds’ leaders for coming forward with what he said were “very tough recommendations that will get their fund settled down” for significant period of time. Kasich downplayed any notion that more legislative changes to the funds were in the near future. “In terms of more things we need to do right now, we need to take a deep breath, and, frankly, we got to congratulate the systems and the Legislature,” he said.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Thursday, Sept. 27, the 271st day of 2012. There are 95 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 27, 1962, “Silent Spring,” Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking as well as controversial study on the effects of pesticides on the environment, was published in book form by Houghton Mifflin. On this date: ■ In 1540, Pope Paul III issued a papal bull establishing the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, as a religious order. ■ In 1779, John Adams was named by Congress to negotiate the Revolutionary War’s peace terms with Britain. ■ In 1854, the first great disaster involving an Atlantic Ocean passenger vessel occurred when the steamship SS Arctic sank off Newfoundland; of the more than 400 people on board, only 86 survived. ■ In 1862, during the Civil War, the Union Army’s first all-black regiment, the self-described “Chasseurs d’Afrique” (Hunters of Africa), was formed in New Orleans (which was then under Northern control). ■ In 1928, the United States said it was recognizing the Nationalist Chinese government. ■ In 1939, Warsaw, Poland, surrendered after weeks of resistance to invading forces from Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during World War II. ■ In 1941, the United States launched 14 rapidly built “Liberty” military cargo vessels. ■ In 1942, Glenn Miller and his Orchestra performed together for the last time, at the Central Theater in Passaic, N.J., prior to Miller’s entry into the Army. ■ In 1954, “Tonight!,” hosted by Steve Allen, made its debut on NBC-TV. ■ In 1964, the government publicly released the report of the Warren Commission, which found that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in assassinating President John F. Kennedy. ■ In 1979, Congress gave its final approval to forming the U.S. Department of Education. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush said the United Nations should have a chance to force Saddam Hussein to give up his weapons of mass destruction before the United States acted on its own against Iraq, but told a Republican fundraising event in Denver that action had to come quickly.

OUT OF THE BLUE Cockatoo owner appeals fine WARWICK, R.I. (AP) The owner of a foulmouthed cockatoo in Rhode Island who was slapped with a $15 fine for violating a noise ordinance is appealing. The Providence Journal reports that Warwick resident Lynne Taylor is appealing to a state court a fine imposed by a municipal judge. The judge said Taylor had broken a local law that prohibits residents from letting their pets habitually howl, bark or make other noise. Taylor’s lawyer says the ordinance is unconstitutional because it gives no parameters for what noise constitutes a violation. He notes the statute says that if someone is annoyed, it’s a public nuisance. A neighbor accused Taylor’s bird of parroting vulgar phrases, cursing and loudly speaking expletives. The neighbor lives with Taylor’s ex-husband.

Rebels strike power center BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian rebels struck deep in the fortress-like inner sanctum of President Bashar Assad’s rule Wednesday in Damascus, detonating two car bombs that engulfed the army headquarters in flames. The suicide bombings and subsequent gun battles in the Syrian capital killed at least five people, including a reporter for Iranian TV. The carefully orchestrated attacks highlighted the regime’s growing vulnerability, even as the 18-month battle to bring down Assad is locked in a stalemate. International diplomacy has failed to stop the bloodshed. Making his debut on the global stage at the United Nations, Egypt’s new President Mohammed Morsi said he will

not rest until Syria’s civil war is brought to an end. He called it the “tragedy of the age” and one that “we all must end.” Morsi has launched an “Islamic Quartet” of regional powers to seek an end to the violence, but he has not offered a specific plan of action. The explosions targeting the Syrian military compound went off about 10 minutes apart, around 7 a.m., with the first blast possibly meant to create a diversion to enable the second attacker to get into the compound. Security camera footage aired by Syrian state TV showed a white van driving on a busy thoroughfare outside the military compound, then veering to the right and exploding. The footage showed a

second blast going off inside the complex, with flames rising up behind trees. After the second explosion, rebel fighters and regime forces exchanged fire for more than three hours, including inside the military compound, said Rami Abdul-Rahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group. The fighting spilled over into nearby Omayyad Square, with regime troops — some wildly firing in the air — chasing after rebel gunmen, witnesses said. Syrian state TV reported that four army guards were killed and 14 people were wounded, including civilians and military personnel. The Iranian English language Press TV said one of its

Syrian correspondents, 33year-old Maya Nasser, was killed by a rebel sniper following the blast. The station replayed Nasser’s last report, in which he was on the phone from Damascus during a live broadcast, when the line suddenly went silent. The Damascus bureau chief for Press TV, Hosein Mortada, was wounded in the clashes. Abdul-Rahman said the regime was underreporting casualties in an attempt to play down the severity of the attacks. Fear spread among residents of the nearby Malki area, an upscale district that has largely been sheltered from the battles that usually rage in the city’s impoverished belt of suburbs.

Morsi assumes major role in Mideast UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Egypt’s new President Mohammed Morsi assigned himself the heavyweight’s role in the Middle East on Wednesday, declaring in his first speech to the United Nations that the civil war raging in Syria is the “tragedy of the age” and must be brought to an end. In a wide-ranging address that touched on all major issues confronting the region, Morsi also decried Israeli settlement-building on territory Palestinians claim for a future state and condemned a film produced in the United States that denigrates Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. He urged all U.N. member nations to join in an effort to end what he called “the catastrophe in Syria” that pits the regime of Bashar Assad against opposition forces trying to end 40 years of dictatorship. More than 30,000 people have been killed in the 18-month conflict. Morsi has called for Assad

MOHAMMED MORSI, president of Egypt, addresses the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters, Wednesday. to step down and said Wednesday that “the bloodshed in Syria and the humanitarian crisis that has unfolded must be stopped.” Morsi, an Islamist and key member of the once-banned Muslim Brotherhood, opened his remarks to the U.N. Gen-

eral Assembly by celebrating himself as Egypt’s first democratically elected leader who was swept into office after what he called a “great, peaceful revolution” that overthrew Hosni Mubarak. He then quickly inserted himself into the thorniest is-

sues in the Middle East, demanding that the United Nations grant membership to the Palestinians, with or without a peace agreement with Israel. “The fruits of dignity and freedom must not remain far from the Palestinian people,” he said, adding that it was “shameful” that U.N. resolutions are not enforced. The Palestinians are expected to again ask for U.N. recognition and formally make application to the world body in November, after the U.S. presidential election. President Barack Obama said when the Palestinians sought recognition last year that Washington would block the move until there was a peace deal with Israel. The focus of IsraeliPalestinian negotiations, which have been on hold for four years, is a two-state solution that would formally grant the Palestinians the rights of an independent country.

Politician tries to keep job TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Shortly after newly elected Rep. Dan Benishek arrived in Washington, staffers raised a banner that proclaimed to visitors in his Capitol Hill suite: “If you are here to ask for more money, you’re in the wrong office!” The message was fitting for a tea party favorite who had railed against federal spending and a “nanny-state mentality” during the 2010 campaign that led to a Republican takeover of the House.

Bizarre tumor case may lead to custom cancer care BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE The Associated Press

It’s a medical nightmare: a 24-year-old man endures 350 surgeries since childhood to remove growths that keep coming back in his throat and have spread to his lungs, threatening his life. Now doctors have found a way to help him by way of a scientific coup that holds promise for millions of cancer patients. The bizarre case is the first use in a patient of a new discovery: how to keep ordinary and cancerous cells alive indefinitely in the lab. The discovery allows doctors to grow “mini tumors” from each patient’s cancer in a lab dish, then test various drugs or combinations on them to see which works best. It takes only a few cells from a biopsy and less than two weeks to do, with materials and methods common in most hospitals. Although the approach needs much more testing against many different types

of cancer, researchers think it could offer a cheap, simple way to personalize treatment without having to analyze each patient’s genes. “We see a lot of potential for it,” said one study leader, Dr. Richard Schlegel, pathology chief at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington. “Almost everyone could do it easily.” An independent expert agreed. For infections, it’s routine to grow bacteria from a patient in lab dishes to see which antibiotics work best, Dr. George Q. Daley of Children’s Hospital Boston and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute said in an email. “But this has never been possible with cancer cells because they don’t easily grow in culture,” he said. The new technique may reveal in advance whether a person would be helped by a specific chemotherapy, without risking side effects and lost time if the drug doesn’t work. “Pretty nifty,” Daley wrote.

Congressional District elected representatives who sided with conservatives on social issues like abortion while energetically seeking federal dollars for local projects — most recently Bart Stupak, a Democrat who retired after nine terms. But Benishek aimed to fully embrace the conservative ideal. And now after two years in office, he finds himself in an unusual predicament, a politician taking heat for staying true to his campaign rhetoric rather than failing to do so. Whether he wins a second term will offer clues about how well the less-government-isbetter philosophy actually plays out in the countryside and small towns where the staunchly conservative movement has flourished.

Senegalese mark 10 years since their ‘Titanic’ DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — Ten years after one of the worst maritime disasters in history, a handful of survivors gathered in Senegal on Wednesday to pay homage to the victims of the Joola, a Senegalese ferry that sank off the coast of Gambia, killing 1,863 people. That’s 361 more than were killed when the Titanic went down nine decades earlier, claiming 1,502 lives. The MV Le Joola took off on Sept. 26, 2002 from Ziguinchor, the capital of Senegal’s southernmost province. The governmentowned ferry was carrying several times the maximum recommended number of passengers, and survivors say it was already listing from the excess weight when it ran into a storm. Survivors wept at the graves Wednesday, most of which are unmarked in the Dakar cemetery that was cre-

ated for the disaster. The bodies were so decomposed that most could not be identified and one relative of the dead went from headstone to headstone, placing his hand on the white marker, as if to find his loved one. Among the 64 who made it out alive was Victor Djiba, a soldier who was assigned to work on the boat. He got out only because he knew the layout of the ferry. But his friend, with whom he was sharing a cabin, perished. “Since 2002, I have to use sleeping pills to be able to fall asleep. And even with the pills, I still don’t manage to fall asleep until 2 a.m.,” said Djiba, who attended an interfaith ceremony held at the cemetery on Wednesday. “When the boat started to sink, I was in a cabin with my colleague. I feel responsible for his death,” he said.

Dear Heloise: I read your column in The (Ne-wark, N.J.) StarLedger. I am interested in gett i n g rust off garden tools. I think Hints y o u from c a n u s e Heloise vinegar. Do Heloise Cruse y o u have a solution? — Jacquelin L., Short Hills, N.J. You’re right — the answer is my beloved vinegar! Small garden tools, like clippers, can be placed in undiluted white or apple-cider vinegar overnight or longer. Let soak, scrub with a brush or scrubbie, rinse and then dry. For larger tools, you take vinegarcan soaked rags or towels, wrap them around the rusty areas and then cover with plastic wrap. If bolts and screws are lightly corroded with rust, a good soaking in vinegar can remove the rust. — Heloise ODOR BEGONE Dear Heloise: I like to save money and recycle by reusing old glass jars that held food such as pickles, jellies and sauces. I always wash them with soap and water, but at times it seems like an odor still lingers from the food that it used to contain. I finally realized that if I store the jars with the lids off, allowing for air circulation, the odor eventually goes away and stays away. — Diane S., via email

Consider ‘what if’ leaders who would develop leaders? What if ... the number of new disciples and leaders would grow daily to surpass thousands to tens and hundreds of thousands? What if ... after a period of time a strong resistance group of religious, political and business leaders would rise up against the tens of thousands of relatively new disciples and drive them from their homes forcing them to go to many other parts of the world taking their new found faith and empowered witness? What if ... the newly scattered groups of disciples and leaders would take seriously the Great Commission and would purposely lead one group after another after another to continuously reproduce all around the world? What if ... we would choose not to? The writer is the pastor at the First Church of God in Sidney.

Houston church pastor to retire Sunday HOUSTON — On Sunday, Pastor James Manuel will retire from Houston Congregational Christian Church as pastor. He has been pastor at the Houston church for almost 13 years. A carry-in open house to honor Manuel’s retirement will be held Sunday in the church basement immediately following the church service. Manuel retired with 32 years of teaching in the Piqua City Schools and the Hardin-Houston Schools in 1999. He retired in June 1999 and became pastor of the Houston Congregational

Christian Church in July of that year. He always said that he traded his teaching textbooks for the Bible to teach about God to the people. Manuel taught math, science and social studies in the Piqua City Schools for 28 years, and loved every minute of his career, he said. He was principal at North Street School in Piqua until the building was torn down. He taught science at Houston Junior High for four years. He also coached junior high track at Houston. After retiring from teaching in 1999, to become a better pastor he

went back to school to earn his Doctor of Ministry at Andersonville Baptist Seminary in Andersonville, Ga. “The last 13 years as pastor of Houston church has been the most rewarding experience of my career,” he said. He believes that he is the luckiest pastor anywhere because he feels he has had the opportunity to have worked with the very best congregation anyone could ever hope to have. Anyone interested in a part-time minister’s job is asked to contact Sandy Langston at 295-3755.

Parishes offer parenting class VERSAILLES — St. Denis and Holy Family parishes, in collaboration with Catholic Social Services, will host their second “Parish Café” workshop for parents and other adults this year to provide information and professional support to those who wish to bring faith and values into the everyday life of their family. This speaker series is open to the general public without cost. Programs will be held at St. Denis Catholic Church basement, 14 E. Wood St. on the second Wednesday of each month unless otherwise noted. October’s topic is “Parenting 101,” which will be held Oct. 10 from 6 to 7 p.m. and will feature speaker Michele Paulus, a therapist at Catholic Social Services who works with children and families. Paulus will share parenting concepts that can benefit children of all ages. Topics will include bonding with your child, modeling positive behaviors, encouragement, setting reasonable expectations, and finding opportunities to express our love. “I want to share with others how we can effectively move our children from cradle to adulthood, above all else, the importance of acting with love,” Paulus said. Area residents of all faiths are in-


vited to attend, enjoy light snacks and gourmet coffee. “Parenting is such an important topic when building strong families,” explained St Denis and Holy Family pastor, the Rev. David Vincent. “We should never feel we are too old to learn new and effective parenting skills. Building strong families will help us build a strong church and a strong community.” Other upcoming offerings include: • Nov. 14 — “Balancing Sports, Family, and Faith,” featuring basketball standout Justine Raterman; her parents, Jim and Karen Raterman; and coach, Jacki Stonebraker. • Dec. 12 — “Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of America.” The story of the apparitions, the roses, the tilma, and the resulting conversions will be presented in a play. • Jan. 19 — Dr Ray Guarendi, “10 Small Steps that Lead to Big Rewards in Marriage.” For more information about the Parish Café programs, contact Jane Pierron of St. Denis and Holy Family at (937) 526-4945.

gether explore a critical issue of our day — families who no longer have Christ at the center of their lives. Registration has closed because the conference is sold out. “This summit, which I will attend both days, will be an opportunity for us to prayerfully commit ourselves to the New Evangelization of the families of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati,” said Schnurr. “We will examine the issues that families are facing and explore ways to effectively proclaim the Gospel message in our time. “Our goal is to create

a clear plan for implementing the New Evangelization across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. It is my hope that every parish and Catholic school will support this important endeavor with their participation and with their prayers.” Keynote speakers will be Schnurr; Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, of Louisville; Helen M. Alvare, an associate professor of law at George Mason University; and John Roberto. editor of the journal Lifelong Faith and coordinator for the Faith Formation 2020 Initiative.

and treading some of the same ground, filmmaker Kevin Miller believes the debate about the nature of hell is not academic. In an interview after a Nashville screening of “Hellbound?” Miller said he believes our ideas about hell have a realworld effect on the way we live our lives and the way we relate to others.

City crashes up, Parent-counselor safety group told meeting suggested PIQUA — Ohio State Highway Patrol Piqua Post Commander Lt. Richard Albers hosted the quarterly meeting of the Governor’s Community Traffic Safety Network of Shelby County last week. Officials representing a number of jurisdictions and agencies attended the meeting, which was held at the patrol’s district headquarters in Piqua. Sidney Police Capt. William Balling provided an overview of traffic statistics for the first three quarters of the year. Although citations remain about the same, the number of accidents has increased 15.6 percent over 2011, and the number of arrests for driving under the influence has increased 22 percent.

Hit-skip crashes accidents Hit-skip continue to be a concern, with the number of such accidents up nearly 21 percent over the previous year. Balling reported there has been some progress in solving hit-skip accidents, with the rate of such accidents being solved increasing by more than 52 percent over the previous year. The other good news is that last year by this time the city had reported two fatalities. This year there have been none. Albers presented the traffic statistics for the Piqua Post. The number of traffic stops has increased 50 percent over the previous year, with 7,317 recorded thus far this year. The number of crashes investigated is actually down 12 percent, a statistic that generally declines as enforcement is stepped up. Albers reported the patrol also made a higher number of driving under the influence arrests, with their percentage being up 21 percent over the previous year. The patrol reported six fatal accidents with six killed.

County crashes Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office Lt. Tim Bender provided the report for the office. He reported that thus far there have been 108 crashes investigated by the Sheriff’s Office, with 31 resulting in injuries and 55 individuals injured. Two of the accidents have been fatal accidents. Twenty-five percent of the accidents have involved an animal. Chairman of the Safety Network, Lehman Catholic High School President and Sidney Mayor Mike Barhorst, asked why drunken driving arrests had increased after having seen decreases over the course of the past couple of years. “I could only guess that as the economy slowly improves and people have more income, they are getting out more,” Albers stated. “However, we really don’t have any data as to why.” Albers provided an update on House Bill 99, the bill passed by the General Assembly that bans texting while driving. “The bill prohibits driving a vehicle while writing, sending or reading a text-based communication on a handheld electronic wireless communications device,” Albers said.

“Unfortunately,” he said, “the legislation makes it a secondary offense, but it has been our experience that when someone is texting, there is a lane or other easily noticeable primary violation. I should note that it is a primary violation for those who are under 18 years of age, however.” Randy Magato, representing the city of Sidney’s Engineering Department, provided an update on the traffic safety improvements that will be made to Ohio 47. Magato reported that of intersections in Sidney with the most accidents, seven of the top 10 are on Ohio 47. The Fourth Avenue intersection had the most, with 35 accidents in the past three years. The Vandemark Road intersection followed closely with 33 accidents. In all, the seven intersections tallied 150 accidents in the period studied (2009-11).

‘Better access’ “The proposed improvements will provide better access management, intersection upgrades, and widening of the roadway from Fifth Avenue to Walnut Avenue. The intersection of Folkerth Avenue, Wayfayer Court and Michigan Street will be completely redesigned so that Folkerth and Wayfarer align. Other intersections will be widened and some business entrances eliminated,” Magato explained as he shared nearly two dozen

slides with the attendees. The program, provided by Albers, gave those in attendance the opportunity to see the new cruisers the patrol has begun using. Albers reported that the Piqua Post has thus far taken delivery of three Dodge Police Interceptors, which are modified Dodge Chargers. The new cars are silver. “The white cars were supposed to be easier to see.” Albers said. “That did not necessarily prove to be the case, especially during winter snowstorms.”

New weaponry Albers reported troopers who had already driven the vehicles really liked them. The lieutenant also provided an inside look at the new weaponry the cruisers will carry. Several of the officers in attendance at the meeting, including Anna Police Chief Scott Evans, said they like the new short-barreled shotguns being purchased for the new cruisers. Sidney Fire Chief Brad Jones advised the Emergency Operations Center refresher training has been scheduled for Oct. 18. He advised additional information will be sent by email with the schedule for the morning session. The group’s next meeting is scheduled for Dec. 18 and will be held at the Ohio Department of Transportation’s District 7 headquarters in Sidney.

Again, I was informed that no new data has been found and that “the chances of parents who are first cousins having a child that is mentally deficient are higher than normal, but still slim.” Unrelated parents have a mentally deficient child once out of every 1000 births, while first cousins have such a child once in 900 births. The odds are with your cousin and you that your children would be born without mental deficiencies. Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

REPLAY 50 years ago Sept. 27, 1962 Red Anger led the Shelby County League at his Bel Mar Lanes on Wednesday evening. Recording his 610 aggregate, Red racked a 230 game, but his No. 8 crew was topped by Charlie’s Seat Covers, 6-2. Bette Crumpler chalked a 532 series to give Kemper Insurance a 3-0 sweep of Bel Mar Lanes.

25 years ago Sept. 27, 1987 As expected, Jackson Center breezed to the Shelby County League championship at Shelby Oaks, winning by 26 strokes. The Tigers shot 340 to 366 for runner-up Botkins. Fort Loramie had 370, Anna 389 and Houston 410. Jackson Center’s Jason Harmon was the tournament medalist with an 81, Jim Gooding shot 84, Dustin Detrick 85, Preston Metz 90 and Lyle Faler 92.

Jackets open North play Travel to Troy Friday night to begin tough stretch of division games BY KEN BARHORST Young Sidney head coach Adam Doenges is certain his post-game talk to his Yellow Jacket football team Saturday night was, at the very least, his shortest ever, and maybe the shortest of all time. Martin His team had just pummeled Dayton Belmont 49-14 to run its record on the year to 3-2. But while everyone else was celebrating and feeling good about another Sidney win, Doenges was thinking ahead, as head coaches tend to do. His Jackets took a giant step forward in the program after back-to-back 0-10 seasons by winning three of their five non-conference games to start the season. But now comes the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division, which occupies the Sidney schedule from here on out.

The first North game comes up Friday night at Troy, and even through the Trojans come into the game with a worse record than Sidney, at 2-3, they are no doubt favored going into the game. “The competition definitely gets better this week,” said Doenges. “As much as we’d like to enjoy the Belmont win for a while, we can’t afford to. We’ve gotten better over the first half of the season, but I don’t know if we’re quite to the level of those guys yet. But I hope we are and I hope we’re ready to challenge for the GWOC North.” Sidney trailed Belmont 143 at the half last week, but outscored the Bison 46-0 in the final two quarters to emerge with the lopsided victory. Doenges said he thought there were some things his special teams could exploit, and that turned the game around. “The kids heard all week how they were supposed to win this game, so when we were down 14-3 at the half, I didn’t want to kick and scream and throw things at

halftime,” said Doenges. “I didn’t want the kids thinking they weren’t doing what everybody said they were supposed to do. “Our special teams turned it around,” he went on. “We had a couple blocked kicks and took advantage of that.” One thing that stood out in the final statistics from the game were those of Kaleb Martin. Going into the game, he was mostly used as a receiver, but Doenges wanted to find more ways to put the ball in his hands. He responded with 179 yards rushing on 18 carries, an average of nearly 10 yards per carry. “We just wanted to get the ball in his hands,” said Doenges. “He’s not the biggest kid (5-7, 160), but he’s got great speed. He was second in the 200 in all of the GWOC last spring. Our offense was struggling so we sat down as a coaching staff and I asked who they thought we should get the ball to. And Kaleb’s name kept coming up. So we’ll continue to try to get the ball in his hands this week.”

Troy has a new coach for the first time in a long while, and he’s had to endure some tough losses so far. The Trojans lost by seven to Chaminade, by six to Springfield and by one last week to Miamisburg. The Trojans are still predominantly a rushing team, and Miles Hibler leads the way with 424 yards so far. “They will put the tight end in and run the I-formation, and just pound the ball,” said Doenges. “Hibler is a big, thick back and one of the faster kids in the league. As the weeks have gone by, I think they’ve come to realize how good he is.” Trojan quarterback Matt Barr has been effective, too, however, hitting 34 of 62 for 55 percent, and 370 yards. He’s thrown three touchdowns. “I think Troy is still trying to figure things out a little,” said Doenges. “They have a new quarterback, new running backs and an almost new offensive line. But they’re a good football team that just hasn’t finished games off.”

Long road trip for Redskins FORT LORAMIE — Afer falling victim to a “perfect game plan” last week, in the words of head coach Matt Burgbacher, the Fort Loramie Redskins are almost in a must-win situation this week.

They are just 1-4 but the teams they’ve lost to are formidable, including 5-0 North Union and 4-1 Triad. “Their four losses are to good teams,” said Burgbacher. “They have the athletes, and they will probably throw the ball 25 or 30 times.

When: Sunday, Sept. 30 TV: ESPN (1:00 p.m. EST) Layout: 1-mile oval Banking/Turns: 24 degrees Banking/Straightaways: 9 degrees June Winner: Jimmie Johnson Crew Chief’s Take: “Dover is a high-banked, one-mile oval that is similar at both ends. It’s also a concrete track with several grooves. Goodyear has a new tire that puts a lot of rubber down and makes for very slick spots on the track. Cars drive over a hump at both corner entries that unloads tires and makes corner entry a big challenge. Most drivers would say it’s a real ‘driver’s track.’ Dover has made significant improvements to pit road in the last year, which has helped the pit crews.”

Denny Hamlin follows through, wins Chase race in New Hampshire By MATT TALIAFERRO Athlon Sports Racing Editor

FLOUNDERING FORDS Through two 2 Chase events, the Blue Oval gang’s performance has been largely forgettable. Roush Fenway Racing’s Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth spent a large part of NASCAR’s 26-race regular season ranked in the top 3 in the championship standings. In the Chase, however, no Ford driver has scored a top-10 finish. Biffle (13th) was the highest finishing Ford driver at Chicagoland, while Kenseth led the charge at New Hampshire (14th). SWEEP Austin Dillon 3 BLUEGRASS scored the win in Saturday’s Kentucky 300 Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway. The win was Dillon’s second of the season — and second of his career — with both coming at the 1.5-mile tri-oval in Sparta, Ky. Dillon’s No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevy has led 257 of a possible 400 laps at the facility this season. AT THE TOP ... WITHOUT THE 4 TIGHT CHASE James Buescher recorded his fourth win of the 2012 Camping World Truck Series campaign. The win moved Buescher to within four markers of points leader Ty Dillon. Timothy Peters and Parker Kligerman are also within 30 points of the top spot. In the Nationwide Series, 19 points separate the top three positions held by Elliott Sadler, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Austin Dillon.

It appeared Denny Hamlin had a good idea that he would win the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Or at least run well. Maybe. Actually, it’s hard to know exactly what he was thinking leading up to the second race of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup. After dropping from a top-10 finish to 16th with an empty fuel tank the previous week at Chicagoland Speedway, Hamlin tweeted, “This is 1 week of 10. We will win next week.” Most took it as a prediction; a called-shot of sorts. And why not? Since his Sprint Cup Series debut in 2005, Hamlin has shown a flare for NASCAR’s flat tracks, registering 10 of his 22 career wins on the minimally-banked facilities in Loudon, N.H., Martinsville, Va., Phoenix, Ariz. and Pocono, Penn. At the least it was a bold statement, even from a driver touted as a title favorite. However, Hamlin clarified his social-media sentiment on Friday, when he again took to Twitter, saying, “Not really sure what all the buzz in the media is about my tweet last week. I didn’t guarantee, didn’t promise, just made a statement.” The theme persisted in his media availability later in the day, when he stated that, “I’ve had confidence before and I said at Pocono and different race tracks (that), ‘I expect to win’ — and it’s no different. Given our history here, given how we ran the first practice and hopefully how we run tomorrow, I’ll expect to win.” Regardless of what it was, Hamlin backed it up on Sunday. Starting 32nd due to incorrect air pressure in his tires during qualifying, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver sliced through the field after the green flag waved. By lap 30 he had entered the top 15, and 64 laps later took the point, passing teammate Kyle Busch. From there, the rout was on, as Hamlin led 193 of the final 206 laps to earn his series-best fifth victory of

the season. In the process, he vaulted to within seven points of championship leader Jimmie Johnson. “Once we got to about lap 50 and started working our way to sixth, seventh position, I knew that we had the winning car,” Hamlin said. To find anyone else in the field that thought different would be a tall order. Second- and third-place finishers Johnson and Jeff Gordon could only shake there heads in retrospect. “No,” was Gordon’s definitive response when asked if anyone had anything for Hamlin’s Toyota. “I don’t think that thing bobbled all day.” “Never slipped,” Johnson concurred. The only reason for concern on Hamlin’s part — and hope on Johnson’s — came when NASCAR threw a yellow flag for debris with 26 laps remaining. Hamlin, who enjoyed a nearly six-second lead at the time, could only show his disgust

I On Monday, Furniture Row Racing announced that Kurt Busch had been hired to drive the team’s No. 78 Chevy during the 2013 Sprint Cup season. Busch will replace Regan Smith, who joined FRR at the beginning of the 2009 season. “Though we have made strides as a resourceful singlecar Sprint Cup team, we are not where we want to be, which led us to the difficult decision of making a driver change as we move forward,” said Furniture Row Racing’s general manager Joe Garone. “Kurt’s exceptional driving talent has the capacity to take a team to another level. We

over the team’s in-car radio. “Really, I don’t understand why they do this,” he complained after his spotter informed him that a caution had been thrown for “phantom debris.” Hamlin got the jump on the lap 278 restart, though, and quickly pulled away for the 2.67-second win. “I had a little bit of hope for just, you know, a quarter of a lap there,” Johnson said of possibly wresting the lead from Hamlin on the final restart. “And then it was like, ‘Uhoh, don’t lose second.’ And then pulled away from Jeff and got going from there.” And with victory claimed and burnouts complete, Hamlin threw one final “called-shot” innuendo into play — furthering the “did he or didn’t he” question — striking a Babe Ruth, circa 1932, home run pose after completing victory burnouts on the frontstretch. Message: Delivered.

look forward to having Kurt join our Denverbased organization and feel his racing experience will play an important role as we plan ahead to 2013.” Busch signed a one-year contract with Phoenix Racing prior to the 2012 season following his release from Penske Racing in Dec. 2011. Smith revealed last weekend that he would not be returning to FRR. Smith has one win with the organization, which came in the 2011 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. He is currently 23rd in the Sprint Cup point standings.

Dover International Speedway Junie Donlavey fielded entries for over 50 years in NASCAR’s top division — from Joe Weatherly and LeeRoy Yarbrough to Ricky Rudd and Ken Schrader and a host of drivers in between — but his Dover mount in May 1981 might have been his most memorable. Jody Ridley drove Donlavey’s No. 90 Ford to victory in the Mason-Dixon 500 that day, scoring both men’s lone Cup victory. Neil Bonnett, Cale Yarborough and David Pearson all took turns at the front, but each dropped an engine while leading. Ridley finally emerged with the lead — although Bobby Allison’s car owner, Harry Ranier, claimed that NASCAR’s timing and scoring had incorrectly placed Ridley ahead of his No. 28 Buick — and led the final 20 laps to score an unlikely win over Allison, Dale Earnhardt, D.K. Ulrich and Rudd.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Jimmie Johnson dominated Dover in June and has finished second in the two Chase races thus far. Pretty Solid Pick: Matt Kenseth has finished outside of the top 5 at Dover only once in his last nine visits. Good Sleeper Pick: Might this be the week that Kevin Harvick wakes up? He was second here in June. Runs on Seven Cylinders: Denny Hamlin admits that Dover is his worst Chase track. You’ve been warned. Insider Tip: The gap between Johnson and Kenseth and the rest of the field is a sizable one.

Johnson, Chad Kanus and the boys have methodically clicked off consecutive second-place finishes to begin the Chase. Next up is Dover, where the 48 dominated in June. Much of the talk since Sunday’s New Hampshire event has centered on Denny Hamlin being Johnson’s biggest threat. Oh, how quickly we forget about Keselowski’s big win in Chicago. Hamlin has certainly earned a spot among the elite on this list. However, mistakes like running out of fuel in Chicago and the tire pressure issue during qualifying in Loudon raise red flags. Hasn’t shown the pop of the preceding three, but neither has anyone else. That said, Bowyer is rolling along with consecutive runs of first, 10th and fourth. Kahne has come out firing in the Chase with a pair of top-5 runs. Unfortunately for the 5 team, it hasn’t shown the speed to keep up with the team housed in the same complex. Junior, who has enjoyed a top-5 ranking in the standings all season, suddenly finds himself stuck in seventh since the Chase reset — and 26 points in the hole to Johnson. Gordon’s last five races: Third, second, second, stuck throttle, third. The problem? That stuck throttle resulted in a 35th-place bomb and has the team wondering what could have been. Stewart’s average finish in the four races preceding Richmond: 25.0. Since: 5.6. Funny how since the Chase came into play, he’s abandoned the summer for the fall. Harvick’s finishing position has improved from 12.3 to 9.5 since Gil Martin was brought back as the crew chief. That’s nice, but at this rate it’s not going to win a championship. A noticable drop in performance within the Ford camp finds Kenseth — who spent the majority of the regular season in the top 3 in the standings — reeling near the bottom of the Chase. Will have to do better than ninth- and 17th-place runs if he’s to keep the dream alive. In hindsight, wrecks at Atlanta and Bristol may be what’s keeping the 39 team from contending. See: Kenseth, Matt. After leading 48 laps in Loudon the engine went sour. That was almost too easy to predict. Nothing flashy here, as Menard chugs along averaging a 14.9-place finish throughout the season. Carl Edwards, Sam Hornish Jr., Joey Logano, Mark Martin, Brian Vickers

Browns’ WR Massaquoi out tonight CLEVELAND (AP) — Mohamed Massaquoi is hurt, and without the wide receiver Cleveland’s passing could be hurting against Baltimore. Massaquoi will miss Thursday night’s game against the Ravens with an injured hamstring. Massaquoi, who was off to a strong start this season, strained his left hamstring in the second half of Sunday’s loss to Buffalo and did not practice the past two days. Before leaving for Baltimore on Wednesday, the Browns reported Massaquoi is out, meaning rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden won’t have his top wide receiver against the Ravens Massaquoi has nine catches for a team-high 145 yards and has developed a nice chemistry with Weeden. Massaquoi’s injury will likely give Jordan Norwood his first playing time this season and force Cleveland’s other wide receivers to step up

CLEVELAND BROWNS wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (11) will be out of action tonight when the Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens. their games for the Browns to have any chance of ending a ninegame losing streak. Greg Little could become a primary target, but he’s coming off a

game in which he dropped a big pass, leading coach Pat Shurmur this week to say he would consider sitting the second-year player. It’s also possible that re-

turn specialist Josh Cribbs could take more offensive snaps against the Ravens. He caught one pass for 24 yards last week and Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress said Cribbs’ playing time could increase. “We’re going to water drop him in there, but to tell you that he would have a leading role, I would be misleading anybody to say that,” Childress said. “We’re going to have plays for him in there that are his plays. Even though they’re his plays, it doesn’t mean the ball is going to be able go to him just by virtue of some of the progressions we have. We can look at him, if he’s gloved or he’s covered, then you can’t go there. “You could have the best intentions with Josh and still not be able to get him the football.” The Browns also need to get more production from rookie Josh Gordon, who had three catches for 40 yards

against the Bills and showed signs of breaking out. Cleveland drafted the 6-foot-3, 225pounder in the second round of the supplemental draft to make plays and it may be time for Gordon to start making some. “You see flashes in some of his play and what he does,” Childress said. “He hasn’t had a tremendous amount opportunities around the ball, at least as the regular season has started. He’s been semi-productive when he has been around the ball. “ Weeden will try to stretch the Ravens’ ballhawking defense and to do that he needs to connect on a long pass with rookie speedster Travis Benjamin. Weeden has just missed on several long throws to Benjamin, who caught a 22yard TD pass last week. “Somewhere you’ve got to hit one of those or otherwise they go in the books as a long foul ball,” Childress said. “We’ve had a couple opportuni-

ties up the field and we need to hit a couple of those things because those have a way of taking some people out of where you’re playing.” Norwood could give Weeden an option underneath. Norwood, who has been inactive for Cleveland’s first three games, made four starts last season. He had 23 receptions for 268 yards and a touchdown, and toward the end of the season was one of the only Browns receivers able to get separation from defenders off the line of scrimmage. The Browns will also face the Ravens without tight end Alex Smith, who will miss his second straight game with a concussion. Rookie linebacker James-Michael Johnson continues to be sidelined with injured ribs and won’t play. Browns safety and special teams dynamo Ray Ventrone is listed as questionable. He played last week after undergoing surgery on a broken thumb.

OSU still hasn’t found diversified offense COLUMBUS (AP) — What’s brewing with the 2012 Ohio State Buckeyes ... BUCKEYES BUZZ: Ohio State coach Urban Meyer wants an offense that can do a lot of things. So far, he doesn’t have one. Heading into Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. game at No. 20 Michigan State, the 14th-ranked Buckeyes gain yardage either on scrambles by QB Braxton Miller or the occasional completion. Asked if the attack is

getting close to being as diversified as he wants, Meyer said, “Oh, I don’t think it’s very close yet. At times we show glimpses, but we’ve got to have more confidence to spread the ball around a little bit.” The Buckeyes have been without one of their top two backs all season. On Saturday, both might return. Jordan Hall, who missed preseason camp (cut foot tendon) has gained 87 and 105 yards in the last two games. Carlos Hyde, who missed those two games

(sprained knee ligament) ran for 82 and 27 yards in the first two games before he was hurt. Meyer considers Hyde the Buckeyes’ “inside man” — running between the tackles. Miller is still the top threat outside containment. Hall does a little bit of both. “We’ve still got a ways to go,” Meyer said. NOTE THIS: Over the last four years, Michigan State and Ohio State have won more Big Ten games (24) than any other conference teams

Everybody is questioning football officials these days. Why not defensive co-coordinator Everett Withers? After S Christian Bryant was flagged for a taunting penalty against UAB. Withers didn’t see it. “I looked at the tape and I don’t see the penalty, so it’s hard for me,” Withers said. “I asked him, ‘Did you say something?’ He said, ‘I can’t remember.’ The guy who threw the flag was back behind him, so I don’t know how he heard it.”

council on the sewer project and noted pumps will be installed in McCartyville, and lines will be tested and certified for residents to hook into the system. A public meeting was held on Aug. 23. It was noted that shrubbery around the pump station will be replaced. Kaminsky noted the sewer system is now operational and village residents will receive official notification from Shelby County, although he said several residents are already tied in to the system. The monthly rate for residents using the system is $60 per month. Kaminsky wanted to remind residents they must have their inside plumbing inspected before they can hook up to the system. Inspections are being done by Miami County officials. Local residents needing to have an inspection can call (937) 573-3534 or (937) 573-3535. Any residents who did not receive information on hookups and billing can contact Kaminsky at 693-2404 for a copy. Kaminsky said he is still trying to contact Dave Heilers about drainage at Maurer’s field. He will keep trying to reach him. Kaminsky told council he got an email from Freisthler Paving regarding containing costs to repair streets in the village. The council voted to proceed with the bid. Once the formal quote is obtained by Kaminsky, a letter will be submitted to Shelby County Engineer Bob Geuy to apply for distribution of permissive license fees to cover the cost of the proj-

ect. Council member John Shumate stated he contacted Barrett Paving for a quote on the street repairs, but he never heard from them. Kaminsky said he would contact Geuy to have the Shelby County Engineer’s Office clean out the storm drains by Greer’s property and said he would tell him about the manhole cover problem on South Street. Kaminsky is waiting on a response from Shelby County regarding distribution of money from mortgage settlement funds. Several properties in Kettlersville have been submitted for demolition if the funds are awarded. The council heard an update on the general store. The State Fire Marshal told council member Bart Shuster the owner of the property was served with a citation on Aug. 7 and had 30 days to address the problems on the property. If they are not repaired, the property owner will be fined. Shumate gave council members an update on the 35 mph sign. He called CJ Electric and asked that they remove the sign. They are waiting on DP&L to disconnect the lines to the sign. Letters have been sent to residents regarding those with high weeds and grass. The village still needs to send letters to residents regarding vehicles in their yards that are not working. Bart Shuster was to contact Sheriff John Lenhart to ask about the village’s options in dealing with the issue. The council discussed repealing the income tax ordinance.

KETTLERSVILLE — Village Kettlersville Council members discussed a request regarding the South Street elevation and heard from a local resident who is concerned about drainage from K’Ville Inn on his property. Bill Elsass and Ben Steinke were present representing Elsass Fabricating as Mayor Eric Kaminsky and members of the council discussed the South Street elevation project. Steinke brought quotes for the project and answered questions. Elsass asked if it would help move the project forward if the property owner paid the cost of raising the street. The council discussed who would be responsible for the upkeep of the street and repairs if the property owner pays to raise the street. The council also discussed concerns about storm water runoff if the street is elevated. The council voted to contact Choice One Engineering and ask them to review the Elsass Fabricating plans to elevate South Street and review storm water runoff. The village will pay for engineering expenses. Resident Shawn Reier spoke about his concerns for drainage issues on his property allegedly coming from K’Ville Inn property. Kaminsky will send a letter to the K’Ville Inn owners and request they install spouting and downspouts to connect to the storm drain and install drain in their sidewalk area. The property owners will be given 30 days to correct those problems. The council received copies of lights currently serviced by Miami Valley Lighting (MVL). Barry Steinke, an MVL representative, distributed the information and discussed the issue. The village currently owns two lights in the village located on North Street and Ohio 274 East. The current cost of the village lighting from MVL is $300 annually. MVL is proposing installing new short arms on all poles and replace lights with high pressure sodium lights. The council voted to accept the recommendations and have MVL make the upgrades. All work would be completed 90 days from the date the contract is signed. Kaminsky updated

Sidney Academic team looks to continue its success

Volume V

Issue 3

Happenings at the Hive


Academia season is upon us again! The Sidney Academia team is under the leadership of coaches Mr. Brett Bickel and Mr. Joe Czupryn. Mr. Czupryn is also a new math teacher at SHS and is member of the statewide board for the Ohio Academic Competition. Mr. Bickel notes, “Mr. Czupryn brings new intensity and a rigorous practice schedule to the team that I think will make our team even stronger and more competitive on the state level.” The County Academia season kicks off on October 1st. The county league consists of Jackson Center, Fairlawn, Lehman, Hardin-Houston, Anna, Botkins, Russia, Fort Loramie, and Sidney and spans the next five Monday Nights. Sidney is looking to win an unprecedented fifth straight county title. Each match consists of 3 teams, competing in academic areas such as Math, Literature, Geography and Science, as well as categories such as General Knowledge, Sports, and Current Events. Each team tries to earn as many points as possible by answering questions posed directly to their team, as well as toss up questions, which require a buzz prior to the other teams. Players Include: Seniors: Neal Dev, Ardy Li, Frank EnYart and John Trygstad, Juniors: Jordan Clay, Carrie Stratton, Tyler Schlagetter and Sophomores: Eli Graham, Nawal Hijazi, Adam Gates and Jack Martin, Freshman: Aaron Jenson, Kara Cobb and Kelton Moore. After the county league concludes, the team competes in various tournaments in cities all around Ohio. The first tournament of this nature is the Fall Kickoff Tournament, which is hosted by Sidney at the high school on October 6. Another ten to twelve weekend tournaments around Ohio run through February. The team goal is to once again qualify for a national tournament like the NAQT National Championship held annually in Atlanta, for which the team has qualified the past two years. The Greater Western Ohio Conference also conducts an Academic competition between its 18 member schools. The GWOC league runs on Tuesday nights December through early March and teams play a round robin format crowning a northern division and southern division champ. The winner of each division earns a birth in the Regional Ohio Academic Competition held in April. Sidney is 44-5 over the last three years in league play and hopes to earn its first Northern Division crown. Parents and friends are invited to watch the matches and cheer the Academic Team on to victory! Come support the Sidney Yellow Jackets Academia team!

Freshman/Senior sibs BY: EMILIE CAVINDER When making the transition from junior high to high school you may see a lot of faces you do not recognize. Five of our new freshmen have a senior who they not only see during school, but also see at home. This year’s pairs of freshmen/senior siblings are Lauren and Nathan Bosway, Quinton and Clayton Malone, Riley and Avery Pickrel, Samantha and Nick Neumeier, and Andrea and Connor Thobe. Having a senior sibling can be very helpful when making the transition from elementary school to freshman year. Freshman Clayton’s point of view is “It’s nice to see my bro in the halls because he is cool and everyone likes him.” Quinton had to agree. “It’s new to me to have a sibling here, but I like seeing him in the hallways.” Freshman Nick Neumeier is happy to be back at school with his older sister. “Since we both participate in band, I can annoy her whenever I want,” he said. “I can also keep an eye on all her boyfriends.” Big sister Samantha shot back: “I’m so glad I’m here for his first year in high school or else he would be completely lost!” It is obvious that these sibling pairs care about each other but there is always room for some goodnatured kidding.

Theme of the week BY: ALLY BERGMAN “What’s this week gonna be?” You may hear many students asking this question regarding this year’s Friday night football games. Each game now has a different theme attached to it. Neon, beach, and cowboy have been some of the unique themes thought up by students. Senior Emilie Cavinder came up with the idea of having a different theme for every game of the week, no matter if it’s home or away. “I thought it would be a good way to get more students to the games and Lexie Steineman and Julia Harrelson get them more involved,” she said. This idea certainly has inspired show their spirit on cowboy night more students to come out and support their school and the team. Cavinder even had the idea to create a Facebook group online so people could make suggestions and everyone could be kept in the know. The Lehman football players are excited about this too. Senior Defensive Tackle Quinton Malone says, “Seeing everyone come out to the game dressed up and excited gets me pumped and ready to dominate whoever we play!” Considering there are four games left in the regular season, there are many more themes to keep the Cavaliers motivated.

Hustle and heart

Cavs for a Cure



Since June, the Lehman girls’ soccer team has been continuously working hard preparing for their season. All of that hard work finally started paying off. The girls soccer team has been Freshman Emily Reinhart kicks ranked fourth in the state! This was the first time that Lehman, or even any of the area schools, have ever been state ranked in soccer. Along with being state ranked, the team is also undefeated. This is a really big accomplishment for these ladies since everyone claimed that this was going to be a rebuilding year. Head Coach Tony Schroeder said, “My expectation for this year is dedicated hard work with serious effort, physically and mentally from this team. Winning is a result of these principles and because of that, I expect a lot of wins.” All of the freshman have stepped up their game and have been a great addition to the team. Freshman Sara Fuller said, “It is so much fun; I love playing with the upperclassmen. They are all so sweet and always look out for me.” Hopefully the Lady Cavs keep up their hard effort and continue to succeed. We wish them all the best of luck for the rest of the season!

At Lehman, we have quite a few clubs so everyone can get involved in something. Since the majority of students have known some-one whose life has been touched by a canEthan Jock, Sloane Glover, cer diagnosis, one of the Katie more popular clubs Rossman, and Stephanie is Cavs for a Cure. Ulbrich at the August Some of the projects Relay planned for this year include a Cavs for a Cure football game pink-out, Can Cancer, Field Day, and the Shelby County Relay next August. For Can Cancer, there are special bins around the school to collect aluminum cans. There is also a monthly collection in the Lehman parking lot so that the community can participate. At the spring Field Day, Cavs for a Cure members run carnival games and sell pop and snacks with the proceeds going to fight cancer. In order to accomplish the club’s goals, they need volunteers for these fundraisers. Interested students should contact Mrs. Hall or Mr. Harrmann, the club’s advisors. If being involved and working on projects with the shared purpose of helping others and stopping cancer, join the Cavs for a Cure!


Sidney Daily News,Thursday, September 27, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, Sept. 28, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Tomorrow, the only Full Moon in Aries all year will take place. This is why you feel your emotions building up within you today, especially when relating to partners and close friends. Easy does it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Tension with co-workers could be building today because of the pending Full Moon tomorrow. Just grin and bear it. Be patient and tolerant with everyone. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Tomorrow’s Full Moon could create some conflict between you and others, especially in group situations. You might be impatient with people in a meeting, or vice versa. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Because the Moon is your ruler, naturally you feel the emotional buildup today before tomorrow’s Full Moon. This means you have to be patient with authority figures. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign because of the pending Full Moon, which takes place tomorrow. Keep your mind on what you’re doing. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid arguments and disputes about shared property, loans, inheritances and cash flow. Today and tomorrow are very poor times for these discussions. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Tomorrow, the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year will take place. This is the classic indication of tension between partners and spouses. Patience is your ally. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your dealings with co-workers and customers might be challenging today. Just accept this and do the best you can. By Monday it will be a whole new story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Parents should be extra vigilant about their children, because the Full Moon will trigger some tension today that could be accident-prone for your kids. Keep your eyes open! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Today you will feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your job and career. You can’t keep everyone happy. (And you can’t ignore your career right now.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be mindful of everything you do and say today, because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. Avoid arguments, and don’t try to coerce others into agreeing with you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a poor day to dispute discrepancies about bills, taxes, insurance matters, banking figures or shared property. Postpone all of this until Monday. YOU BORN TODAY You have a seductive charm that pleases others and makes you popular. You have taste and elegance, and are very romantic. For these reasons, many of you have passionate, romantic lives! Nevertheless, family is important to you. In fact, you are extremely loyal to loved ones. Your year ahead will be highly social and beneficial for all of your relationships. Birthdate of: Brigitte Bardot, actress; Naomi Watts, actress; Marcello Mastroianni, actor.

These same products come in gels, creams and foams for face and ear involvement. Apply the products daily for a week, including the shampoos; then three times a week for the next four to six weeks. Then you can adopt a once-a-week schedule for life. Be careful about applying these medicines to the ear canal. Do so very gently. If itching is a problem, you can buy cortisone 1 percent as a gel, cream or liquid. Liquid is best for the hairy surfaces.You can use the cortisone three times a day if need be. If all this comes to

naught, then you have to put the problem in the hands of a dermatologist. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have three sisters and one brother. Three are obese. All are borderline diabetics.

Yet not one doctor has ever suggested they lose weight. I say shame on those doctors. — C.N. ANSWER: Are you sure their doctors haven’t given them that advice? Maybe they’re telling you a story that isn’t factual. At any rate, I’ll take over. Siblings of C.N., lose weight. Your life is at stake if you don’t.

This isn’t DEAR JUDGMEN- your marriage, so don’t TAL JUDY: I do have a stir the pot.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Tom,” the love of my life, for four years. We have been together more than 10 years and have a 2-yearold daughter. Tom was diagnosed with a terminal illness early last year and is close to the end now. He’s very angry, which I understand, but he takes it out on me since I am his caregiver. I’m also a full-time student about to graduate with my degree in registered nursing, so I’m busy all the time. Between school, my daughter and giving full care to my husband, I’m stressed out. He yells a lot about everything, from money woes to the wrong bread on his sandwich. To top it off, we haven’t been intimate since our daughter was born. I’m not considering straying from our marriage, but at times I feel I’ll be ready to date as soon as he’s gone. It makes me feel guilty. Is it wrong to feel this way? Do you have any advice to help me through this

tragic time in our lives? — DEPRESSED AND LONELY IN MICHIGAN DEAR DEPRESSED: Yes. Stop beating yourself up for experiencing human emotions at a time when you’re hauling a load that would crush an ox. Of COURSE your husband is angry. He has good reason to be — but he’s misdirecting it on you. Guilt is the last thing you need to add to what you’re dealing with. It’s normal to crave the closeness you haven’t experienced in two years. If there are counseling services offered at your nursing school, please avail yourself of them. Venting your feelings in a supportive environment will lighten your load and help you cope with your husband. There are also online support groups for caregivers. If you reach out in either direction, you’ll feel better. It could also be helpful to ask your husband’s doctor for a referral to someone who does end-of-life counseling for him.

75 years Sept. 27, 1937 Judge J.D. Barnes late yesterday advised Governor Davey that he was declining the appointment to the Ohio Supreme Court to fill the vacancy created by the recent death of Judge Thomas A. Jones.

Sept. 27, 1987 COLUMBUS, Ohio ( AP) — Ohio State University’s alcohol education coordinator says the new state drinking age law probably will have little effect on the flow of alcohol on campus. The university, however, has instituted a series of policies designed to help enforce the law. “Drinking and drinking-related behavior is an accepted form of social life on campus,” said Saunie Schuster, “The students aren’t going to change.” ——— RUSSIA — With the recent closing of Monnin’s Garage, Bensman’s Garage is now the only place in town to have a car repaired and the owner of the business says he tries to meet the needs of the community. Daniel Bensman purchased Peltier’s Garage, 103 North St., in May 1986. The garage had been operated by Lester and Robert Peltier. The Peltier brothers had operated the garage for many years after taking over the business from their father, Raymond Peltier. ———
