Grim milestone reached in Afghanistan BY PATRICK QUINN Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The killing of an American serviceman in an exchange of fire with allied Afghan soldiers pushed U.S. military deaths in the war to 2,000, a cold reminder of the perils that remain after an 11-year conflict that now garners little public interest at home. The toll has climbed steadily in recent months with a spate of attacks by Afghan army and police — supposed al-

lies — against American and NATO troops. That has raised troubling questions about whether countries in the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan will achieve their aim of helping the government in Kabul and its forces stand on their own after most foreign troops depart in little more than two years. “The tally is modest by the standards of war historically, but every fatality is a tragedy and 11 years is too long,” said Michael O’Hanlon, a fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington. “All that is internalized, however, in an American

public that has been watching this campaign for a long time. More newsworthy right now are the insider attacks and the sense of hopelessness they convey to many. “ Attacks by Afghan soldiers or police — or insurgents disguised in their uniforms — have killed 52 American and other NATO troops so far this year. “We have to get on top of this. It is a very serious threat to the campaign,” the U.S. military’s top officer, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, said about the insider threat. See DEATHS/Page 8A

Everything’s coming up pumpkins BY TOM BARNETT tbarnett@sdnccg.com NEW BREMEN — Although summer’s intense drought severely curtailed the growth of pumpkins — especially giant ones — the weekend’s 2012 New Bremen Pumpkinfest was again pronounced a success. Large crowds enjoyed the activities at Crown Pavilion both Friday and Saturday in fine fall weather. Participants enjoyed everything pumpkin — pumpkin pie, a pumpkin roll, even a pumpkin pie bake-off. Music by Cottonwood band and Flight Risk entertained the crowds throughout the night See PUMPKINS/Page 2A

tested states. It is based on a review of public and private polls, television advertising and numerous interviews with campaign and party officials as well as Republican and Democratic strategists in the competitive states and in Washington. In the final weeks before the Nov. 6 vote, Obama is enjoying a burst of momentum and has benefited from growing optimism about the economy as well as a series of Romney stumbles. Most notably, a secret video surfaced recently showing the Republican nominee telling a group of donors that 47 percent of Americans consider themselves victims dependent on the government. To be sure, much could change in the coming weeks, which will feature three presidential and one vice presidential debate. A host of unknowns, both foreign and

domestic, could rock the campaign, knocking Obama off course and giving Romney a boost in the homestretch. Barring that, Romney’s challenge is formidable. Obama started the campaign with a slew of electoralrich coastal states already in his win column. From the outset, Romney faced fewer paths to cobbling together the stateby-state victories needed to reach the magic number. It’s grown even narrower in recent weeks, as Romney has seen his standing slip in polls in Ohio, with 18 electoral votes, and Iowa, with six. That forced him to abandon plans to try to challenge Obama on traditionally Democratic turf so he could redouble his efforts in Ohio and Iowa, as well as Colorado, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Nevada and Virginia.

Ohio poll: Obama has nine-point lead over Romney COLUMBUS (AP) — President Barack Obama has a nine-point lead over Mitt Romney in swing state Ohio, according to a mail poll published Sunday by The (Columbus) Dispatch. The newspaper (bit.ly/ScbDTa) said the poll shows Democrat Obama leading Republican Romney 51 percent to 42 percent. The poll shows the president ahead among independent voters by three points and attracting slightly more GOP support than Romney is getting from Democrats. The first Dispatch poll had the two even at 45 percent just before the Republican National Convention in late August. Experts say as many as 40 percent of Ohio’s voters will cast ballots before Nov. 6. Five percent of Ohio voters said

IN THIS Sept. 18, Nicholas “Tanner” Leach appears in court in Marietta. A law that has successfully helped Ohio reduce its inmate population is being criticized as too restrictive by judges seeking more leeway in sentencing. During the Sept. 18 hearing, Judge Susan Boyer expressed her dissatisfaction with the law and warned the offender, Leach, he would be sent to prison if he violated any of the conditions she was imposing. She sentenced him to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a secure treatment center.

Fewer inmates, but judges want law fixed to a fourth-degree felony of unlawful sexual conduct with a 14-year-old boy. During the Sept. 18 hearing, Judge Susan Boyer expressed her dissatisfaction with the law and warned the offender, Nicholas Leach, he would be sent to prison if he violated any of the conditions she was imposing. She sentenced him to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a secure treatment center. “At this point, the court does not have available to it the option to send you to prison,” Boyer said. “Let me be clear: If the court had that option, you would be going to prison.” Assistant Washington County prosecutor Kevin Rings said it was the first time in his career he’d seen a sex offender escape prison. “You had a 24-year-old defendant and a 14-yearold child,” he said. “In Washington County, that’s prison.” Messages were left for Leach’s attorney seeking comment. The prison system is working with the Ohio Judicial Conference on possible updates to the law that would exclude sex offenders from the prohibition on prison.

Enrollment in online schools in Ohio passes 30,000 CLEVELAND (AP) — Enrollment in online schools in Ohio has passed 30,000, more than 12 times the number in 2000 when the first “virtual” school opened in the state. Only Arizona had more students enrolled full time in online schools in 2010-11, according to an annual report by the Evergreen Education Group. Online students attend classes online and do lessons by computer, often at home, typing in tests and papers to be reviewed by a teacher elsewhere.

Most Ohio students in virtual enrolled schools, about 90 percent, attend one of the seven statewide online schools, according to a story Sunday by The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer and the StateImpact Ohio collaboration among National Public Radio and Ohio publicradio stations WCPN, WKSU and WOSU. Although scattered around the state, the online students combined would make up the third-largest district in Ohio — about the size of the Cincinnati schools. The online schools are

charters, independently operated but publicly funded. Robert Mengerink, head of Cuyahoga County’s Educational Service Center, said online schools are convenient but, “You can’t sleep in the back of the room in an online course.” Ohio has lifted a moratorium on creating new online schools, which had been imposed in 2005. In 2013, up to five new online schools can start in the state, though the Ohio Department of Education says none has yet announced plans.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Oct. 1, the 275th day of 2012. There are 91 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 1, 1962, Johnny Carson debuted as host of NBC’s “Tonight Show,” beginning a nearly 30-year run; after being introduced to the audience by Groucho Marx, Carson received his first guests, actor-singer Rudy Vallee, actress Joan Crawford, singer Tony Bennett and comedian Mel Brooks. (The same day, Merv Griffin launched a daytime show, also on NBC; his guests were comedian Shelley Berman, opera singer Roberta Peters and journalist Adela Rogers St. Johns.) On this date: ■ In 1861, during the Civil War, the Confederate navy captured the Union steamer Fanny in North Carolina’s Pamlico Sound. ■ In 1908, Henry Ford introduced his Model T automobile to the market. ■ In 1910, the offices of the Los Angeles Times were destroyed by a bomb explosion and fire; 21 Times employees were killed. ■ In 1932, Babe Ruth of the New York Yankees made his supposed called shot, hitting a home run against Chicago’s Charlie Root in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the World Series, won by the New York Yankees 7-5 at Wrigley Field. ■ In 1937, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black delivered a radio address in which he acknowledged being a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, but said he had dropped out of the organization before becoming a U.S. senator. ■ In 1940, the first section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, 160 miles in length, was opened to the public. ■ In 1949, Mao Zedong proclaimed the People’s Republic of China during a ceremony in Beijing. A 42day strike by the United Steelworkers of America began over the issue of retirement benefits. ■ In 1961, Roger Maris of the New York Yankees hit his 61st home run during a 162-game season, compared to Babe Ruth’s 60 home runs during a 154game season. (Tracy Stallard of the Boston Red Sox gave up the round-tripper; the Yankees won 1-0.) ■ In 1964, the Free Speech Movement was launched at the University of California at Berkeley. ■ In 1972, the book “The Joy of Sex” by Alex Comfort was first published by Mitchell Beazley of London.

OUT OF THE BLUE Man does time for convict friend STOCKHOLM (AP) — A man convicted of smuggling in Sweden outwitted his jailers by sneaking in a friend to serve most of his yearlong sentence, prison officials said Friday. The identity of the false convict was discovered only when he'd been released on probation after serving about two-thirds of his friend's sentence "sometime in 2008 or 2009," Elisabeth Lager of Sweden's Prison and Probation Service said. Lager said the in-lieu convict came to serve the sentence with a false ID a driving license in the name of the smuggler friend but with his photograph. She declined to name either man or give more details about the switch.

Obama, Romney: Rivals with little personal history BY JULIE PACE Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — When Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2008, one of the people who reached out to the couple was newly elected President Barack Obama. It was one of the few personal interactions between Obama and Romney. “He was kind enough to call our home when my wife was ill, and he said that he and Michelle had my wife in their prayers,” Romney said in an interview after the call. “I said, ‘Mr. President-elect, Ann and I have you in our prayers’. And we do.” Even as their political fates have become more entwined, Obama and Romney have had little opportunity to connect directly. In fact, when the Democratic president and the

former Republican governor of Massachusetts stand alongside each other during Wednesday night’s presidential debate in Denver, it will be their first face-to-face meeting in nearly five years. “I don’t really know him well,” Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I think Gov. Romney obviously has achieved extraordinary success with his businesses, and he’s obviously very focused on achieving the presidency. He cares deeply about his family, and I think he cares deeply about his faith.” Romney has had similarly kind words about the president as a father and family man. But most of their descriptions of each other during the campaign are far less complimentary, and that probably will be the case in the debate. Romney accuses the presi-

dent of having “more European than American” views. Obama says Romney has written off half the country. The two do have a few similarities. They’re both graduates of Harvard Law School; Romney also has a business degree from the Ivy League university. Each is a multimillionaire, though Romney’s estimated $250 million fortune far exceeds Obama’s net worth, which is as much as $8.3 million. When people get one of their first looks at the rivals standing side by side Wednesday, they’ll see a Republican who is 14 years older and an inch taller than the 51-yearold president, who stands 6feet-1. Obama and Romney first met in 2004 at a gathering of Washington’s political and media elite. Romney, then governor, and Obama, a senatorelect from Illinois, were picked by the Gridiron Club to deliver speeches at the group’s dinner. The private event’s festive atAP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais mosphere, however, meant PRESIDENT BARACK Obama greets supporters on the tar- their dueling speeches were mac upon his arrival at McCarran International airport, Sunday more about cracking jokes in Las Vegas. than outlining their policy dif-

ferences. By the time their paths crossed again, the rising political stars were presidential contenders. Seeking to line up votes in the New Hampshire primary, they both showed up for the 2007 Labor Day parade in the town of Milford. They shook hands, exchanged a few pleasantries and turned their attention to the voters. New Hampshire was also the site of what aides to both men believe was their last face-to-face meeting before Wednesday’s debate. In January 2008, the Republican and Democratic primary candidates were holding back-to-back debates in Manchester. After the Republicans wrapped up, the moderator invited the Democrats waiting in the wings to join them briefly onstage for a brief show of bipartisanship. Obama and Romney found each other in the scrum. They smiled and shook hands, with Obama placing his hand warmly on Romney’s arm. Obama went on to win the White House. Romney dropped out of the Republican race shortly thereafter.

Medicare to start fining over hospitals’ readmitted patients BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — If you or an elderly relative have been hospitalized recently and noticed extra attention when the time came to be discharged, there’s more to it than good customer service. As of Monday, Medicare will start fining hospitals that have too many patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to complications. The penalties are part of a broader push under President Barack Obama’s health care law to improve quality while also trying to save taxpayers money. About two-thirds of the hospitals serving Medicare patients, or some 2,200 facilities, will be hit with penalties averaging around $125,000 per facility this coming year, according to government estimates. Data to assess the penalties have been collected and crunched, and Medicare has shared the results with individual hospitals. Medicare plans to post details online later in October, and people can look up how their community hospitals performed by using the agency’s “Hospital Compare” website.

It adds up to a new way of doing business for hospitals, and they have scrambled to prepare for well over a year. They are working on ways to improve communication with rehabilitation centers and doctors who follow patients after they’re released, as well as connecting individually with patients. “There is a lot of activity at the hospital level to straighten out our internal processes,” said Nancy Foster, vice president for quality and safety at the American Hospital Association. “We are also spreading our wings a little and reaching outside the hospital, to the extent that we can, to make sure patients are getting the ongoing treatment they need.” Still, industry officials say they have misgivings about being held liable for circumstances beyond their control. They also complain that facilities serving low-income people, including many major teaching hospitals, are much more likely to be fined, raising questions of fairness. “Readmissions are partially within the control of the hospital and partially within the control of others,” Foster said. Consumer advocates say Medicare’s nudge to hospitals is long overdue and not

nearly stiff enough. “It’s modest, but it’s a start,” said Dr. John Santa, director of the Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center. “Should we be surprised that industry is objecting? You would expect them to object to anything that changes the status quo.” For the first year, the penalty is capped at 1 percent of a hospital’s Medicare payments. The overwhelming majority of penalized facilities will pay less. Also, for now, hospitals are only being measured on three medical conditions: heart attacks, heart failure and pneumonia. Under the health care law, the penalties gradually will rise until 3 percent of Medicare payments to hospitals are at risk. Medicare is considering holding hospitals accountable on four more measures: joint replacements, stenting, heart bypass and treatment of stroke. If General Motors and Toyota issue warranties for their vehicles, hospitals should have some similar obligation when a patient gets a new knee or a stent to relieve a blocked artery, Santa contends. “People go to the hospital to get their problem solved, not to have to come back,” he said.

Iran touts domestic Internet as Gmail ban rankles TEHRAN (AP) — Iranian officials announced that they would soon introduce local alternatives to Google and its Gmail e-mail service, even as the country’s media and even some officials stepped up complaints over Tehran’s decision to enact a ban on Gmail in response to an anti-Islam film, newspapers reported on Sunday. Last week, Iran blocked Gmail — but not the search engine of the parent company Google — in response to a court order linked to the distribution of a low-budget, U.S.-produced

film on YouTube, also owned by Google. In a country with 32 million Internet users out of a population of 75 million, according to official statistics, that ban has caused widespread resentment. Even many pro-government newspapers have complained of the disruptions. “Some problems have emerged through the blocking of Gmail,” Hussein Garrousi, a member of a parliamentary committee on industry, was quoted Sunday by the independent Aftab daily as saying. He said that parliament would

summon the minister of telecommunications for questioning if the ban was not lifted. The deputy minister, Ali Hakim Javadi, told reporters that Iranian authorities were considering lifting the Gmail ban, but also wanted to introduce their own domestic alternatives: the Fakhr (“Pride”) search engine and the Fajr (“Dawn”) e-mail services, Aftab reported. Iran’s clerical establishment has long signaled its intent to get citizens off of the international Internet, which they say promotes Western values, and

onto a “national” and “clean” domestic network. But it is unclear whether Iran has the technical capacity to follow through on its ambitious plans, or is willing to risk the economic damage. Bans on Gmail and other services like YouTube and Facebook have left Internet users scrambling to find ways to bypass the blocks. On Saturday, Asr-e Ertebat weekly reported that Iranians had paid a total of 4.5 million US dollars to purchase proxy services to reach blocked sites over the past month.

At the end of their sophomore year, men weighed an average of 9.5 pounds heavier than when they began college, and women added 9.2 pounds. And since men have a much larger body frames, the weight gained by women is surprising. Doctors say that those students who continue to gain weight during their college years seem to have “learning patterns� of gradual weight gain that could spell trouble way beyond graduation.

Knowing that the trend is to add unwanted pounds when attending college, it is important to snack on healthy foods.

At a recent meeting of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 217, President Joan Spence introduced the high school juniors who attended Buckeye Girls State in June. Speaking of their experiences were Kelsie Rossman, Sidney High School; Alexis Deitz, Christian Academy Schools; Andrea Thobe and Mary Ellen Waldsmith, Lehman Catholic High School. They reported their activities have given them a better understanding of the functioning of government. Shelia Nuss told of The Amazing Race, a new project for Alzheimer’s.

Sidney Daily News, Monday, October 1, 2012

DEATHS The top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, was blunter. “I’m mad as hell about them, to be honest with you,” Allen told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday. “It reverberates everywhere across the United States. You know, we’re willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we’re not willing to be murdered for it.” The insider attacks are considered one of the most serious threats to the U.S. exit strategy from the country. In its latest incarnation, that strategy has focused on training Afghan forces to take over security nationwide — allowing most foreign troops to go home by the end of 2014.

after the top U.S. commander put restrictions on such cooperation. Like so many other deaths in Afghanistan, the latest were shrouded in confusion and conflicting accounts. On Sunday, U.S. officials confirmed the deaths of two Americans, a service member and a civilian contractor killed late Saturday. The fighting started when insurgents attacked a checkpoint set up by U.S. forces in eastern Wardak province, said Shahidullah Shahid, a provincial government spokesman. He said the insurgents apparently used mortars in the attack. The Americans thought they were under attack from their allies at a nearby Afghan army checkpoint and Drawdown As part of that draw- fired on it.

NATO did not say whether it considered this an “insider” attack on foreign forces by Afghan allies. In Washington, Pentagon press secretary George Little said 2,000 deaths is one of the “arbitrary milestones defined by others ” that the U.S. administration does not mark. “We honor all courageous Americans who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan to make the American people more secure,” he said. “The fact of the matter is that America is safer because of all of those who have served in this war, including our fallen heroes.”

Other troops In addition to the 2,000 Americans killed since the Afghan war began on Oct. 7, 2001, at least 1,190 more coalition troops from other countries have also died, according to iCasualties.org, an independent organization that tracks the deaths. According to the Afghanistan index kept by Brookings, about 40 percent of the American deaths were caused by improvised explosive devices. The majority of those were after 2009, when President Barack Obama ordered a surge that sent in 33,000 additional troops to combat heightened Taliban activity. The surge brought the total number of American troops to 101,000, the peak for the entire war. According to Brookings, hostile fire was the second most common cause of death, accounting for nearly 31 percent of Americans killed.

Romney is hoping that come Election Day, on-the-fence voters tip his way. But there are hurdles there, too. Early voting is under way in dozens of states, and national and key states surveys show undecided voters feel more favorably toward Obama than Romney. The Republican is in a tight battle with Obama in Florida, as well as Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada. But Ohio’s shifting landscape illustrates Romney’s troubles over the past few weeks. Republicans and Democrats agree that Obama’s solid lead in public and private polling in the state is for real. Over the past month, the president has benefited from an improving economic situation in the state; its 7.2 percent unemployment rate is below the 8.1 percent national average. Obama’s team also attributes his Ohio edge to the auto bailout and GM plant expansions in eastern Ohio. Obama and his campaign have hammered Romney on his tax policies, arguing that the former Massachusetts governor favors the rich while the president as a defender of everyone else.

Good fortune The president has seen the same good fortune in Iowa. A poll released Saturday by The Des Moines Register illustrates his advantage, showing Obama with 49 percent to 45 percent for Romney. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. “It’s a direct result of the time and resources he’s been forced to spend here,” said Iowa Republican strategist John Stineman. Indeed, Obama intently focused on the state ahead of an early voting period that began last week. He campaigned in Iowa aggressively this summer and dumped in a ton of TV advertising, much of it depicting Romney as wealthy and out-of-touch with working Americans. Obama doesn’t just have the wind at his back in those states. The president also appears to be in stronger shape than Romney in Virginia, which has 13 electoral votes, and in New Hampshire, with four votes,

Fizzled Also, Romney’s effort to challenge Obama in Democratic-leaning Wisconsin, home state of running mate Paul Ryan, appears to have fizzled. Despite millions of dollars spent on TV in the last few weeks by both sides, polls show Obama with a clear lead in Wisconsin. Romney’s goal of forcing Obama to defend Michigan — Romney’s native state — and Pennsylvania never materialized. “The big strategic moment coming out of the conventions in my view was whether or not Romney and his campaign could succeed in expanding the parameters of the battleground,” said Tad Devine, a top adviser to 2000 Democratic nominee Al Gore and 2004 nominee John Kerry. “They have not been able to do that.” All this has left Romney with an extraordinarily tight path and few options but to bear down in the states where he is competing aggressively. Time, though, is running out. ___ Associated Press Deputy Director of Polling Jenifer Agiesta and AP news Survey Specialist Dennis Junius in Washington, Associated Press writers Dan Sewell in Ohio, Beth Fouhy in New York and Julie Pace in Chicago contributed to this report.

even though Romney vacations often in the state where he has a lakeside home. Romney and GOP allies are being outspent in that state considerably, a sign of trouble for the Republican challenger. Underscoring his challenges, Romney also has been forced to spend millions of dollars a week defending himself in North Carolina, a GOPleaning state that’s more conservative than most of the states that will decide the election. Polls now show a competitive race there. Democrats boast of having registered 250,000 new voters in the state since April 2011. It’s an eye-popping total in a state that Obama won by just 14,000 votes four years ago. A flood of new voters, presumably a chunk of them Democrats, could help keep that state within Obama’s reach this year.

Reds rally in ninth to win 4-3 But fail to get Cueto 20th win PITTSBURGH (AP) — Johnny Cueto was disappointed he failed to become the Cincinnati Reds’ first 20game winner in 24 years. A late comeback guaranteed a pretty good consolation prize: home-field advantage for his team’s first playoff series. Pinch-hitter Xavier Paul led off the ninth with a tying home run and Zack Cozart had a go-head double for the Reds, who clinched at least the NL’s No. 2 seed with a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. “It was a big win for us because we want to get homefield advantage,” Cozart said. “It seems like we kind of lull through games a lot then turn it on at the end. That’s how it was today.” The Reds pulled into a tie with Washington for best record in the NL at 96-63 after the Nationals lost to St. Louis. Cueto pitched effectively but failed in his attempt to become the Reds’ first 20-game winner since Danny Jackson in 1988. Cueto allowed three runs — one earned — on six hits in seven innings. “I really, really want to give Johnny every opportunity to get 20 wins, but it was just one of those things that didn’t work out,” Reds interim manager Chris Speier said. “The big picture was to keep his pitch count down and have him ready for the postseason.” The presumed starter for Game 1 of the NL division series, Cueto was pulled after throwing 98 pitches. “I could have kept going, but it was the manager’s decision and he decided to take me out,” Cueto said. “I felt good. God willing, I would have liked to have had 20 but I got 19 and that’s a pretty good number, too.” Pittsburgh ensured it’d finish with a record 20th straight losing season with the defeat, extending its major North American professional sports record. The Pirates were 16 games over .500 on Aug. 6 but have lost 18 of 23 to fall to 77-82. “I’m disappointed,” secondyear manager Clint Hurdle said. “One of my goals when I got here was to re-bond this city with this baseball team and to be a group of men who do that collectively. So it’s definitely disappointing.” Paul and Ryan Ludwick were on a last season’s Pittsburgh team that was in first place on July 25 but finished the season on a 19-43 slide. Paul entered the game with four career home runs over parts of four seasons, and Ludwick had only one at bat in the previous 10 days because of left groin soreness. He was scratched from the lineup due to wet field conditions on a day in which it rained throughout the first four innings. Paul homered to lead off the ninth. With two outs, Ludwick doubled. Pinch-runner Denis Phipps scored on Cozart’s hit. Pittsburgh still had its chance. Aroldis Chapman walked Jose Tabata to lead off the bottom of the ninth, but Tabata was thrown out at third trying to advance after Chapman’s throwing error on a pickoff attempt. Chapman then walked Clint Barmes and allowed a single to Rod Barajas before striking out Michael McKenry and Starling Marte to end the game and earn his 37th save.

OHIO STATE quarterback Braxton Miller (5) fumbles the football after a hit from Michigan State linebacker Max Bullough (40) during the fourth quarter of an NCAA college football game at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Mich., Saturday.

The ball bounced right to Kurtis Drummond of the Spartans, who began running down the right sideline before the play was blown dead and Miller was ruled down. The call was reversed after a review, giving Michigan State the ball at its own 32.

Bucks nip Spartans 17-16 BY JIM NAVEAU Civitas Media EAST LANSING, Mich. – Earle Bruce always smiles when Ohio State wins a football game and anytime the coach he mentored, Urban Meyer, wins. But he must have enjoyed OSU’s 17-16 win over Michigan State more than most. Somewhere, Woody Hayes was probably smiling too. The calendar said 2012 but this was definitely old-style football. Ohio State’s much-criticized defense rose to the challenge of stopping Michigan State’s standout running back Le’Veon Bell and limited the Spartans to only one touchdown and three field goals. Offensively, they put the ball in the hands of quarterback Braxton Miller, who ran for more than 100 yards for the third time in OSU’s six games, for most of the afternoon. And then when they got three first downs in the final four minutes to protect a onepoint lead, they handed the ball to 235-pound running back Carlos Hyde to convert two of those opportunities. “That was two sledge hammers going at each other,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Miller rushed for 136 yards on 23 carries and hit 16 of 23 passes for 179 yards and a

a 10-6 lead with 6:08 left in the third quarter, just before Mumphery’s score gave Michigan State a 13-10 lead. It was only three plays after that, though, when Miller found his favorite big-play receiver, Devin Smith, with a 63yard touchdown pass to give Ohio State a 17-13 lead. After a fumble by Miller – his second of the game – MSU’s Dan Conroy hit a 48yard field goal with 7:07 to play. The only other time Michigan State had the ball after that, Ohio State’s defense came up with big plays. With the Spartans facing third down and seven yards to go at their own 39-yard line, linebacker Etienne Sabino sacked Maxwell for a 7-yard loss, forcing a punt. MSU never got the ball again. The clincher came when Hyde went five yards on a third down and four yards to go situation with just over two minutes to play. Michigan State was out of timeouts and OSU was able to run out the clock. “The last timeout, Coach Meyer came over to the offense and said, ‘This is the game right here. If you get this first down, the game’s over. We knew what was at stake but that moment there just kind of exploded it for us,” offensive tackle Reid Fragel said.

Linebacker Kyle Bosworth intercepted Dalton’s first pass of the game and was headed toward the end zone when he fumbled without being touched. The Bengals got the ball back and put together a 74yard drive that ended in a field goal. Jacksonville’s Rashean Mathis also dropped what could have been an easy interception on the drive. On the ensuing third down play, rookie Antwon Blake was flagged for hitting Dalton low after a pass. So instead of punting, Cincinnati kept driving. The Jaguars responded and took a 7-3 lead on Gabbert’s 2-yard TD pass to Marcedes Lewis. Jacksonville’s defense responded with consecutive stops, but then Bengals coach Marvin Lewis used a fake punt to turn the momentum.

Lady Cavs hand Troy Christian first loss The Lehman girls soccer team avoided a second loss in a row and handed Troy Christian its first loss of the season Saturday in high school action at Lehman. The win was key for the now 9-1 Lady Cavs with the seeding meeting coming up this weekend. Lehman lost to Miami East earlier in the week, before winning Saturday. All three teams have just one loss, with Miami East’s coming at the hands of Troy Christian. “Usually I praise the defense and they played well again,” said Lehman coach Tony Schroeder. “But our offense was really good. The girls had a lot of movement and took advantage of our opportunities.” Lehman scored with 25 minutes left in the

first half on a goal by Sarah Titterington, who took a through ball from Jenna Kronenberger and planted it in the left corner of the goal for a 1-0 lead. Then just four minutes later, Jordi Emrick passed to Taylor Lachey, and she beat the defense and put it in the top right corner from the left side for a 2-0 lead. “Our forwards moved a lot off the ball,” said Schroeder. “That made it hard to mark them and Troy Christian plays a marking defense.” Lehman goalie Grace Frantz, who had eight saves, didn’t let the Lady Eagles back in it. The Lady Cavs then put it away on a goal by Emrick, who headed in a corner kick by Titterington.

Fairlawn booters up season record to 9-2 Fairlawn blanked Miami East 5-0 in high school boys soccer Saturday, upping its record to 9-2 on the year. Trey Everett had three goals and two assists, Anthony Gillem two goals and two assists and keeper Wesley Bolton had 23 saves.

Cavs tie 1-1 Lehman’s boys soccer team battled Yellow Springs, the No. 5 team in the Miami Valley, to a 1-1 tie on Saturday in high school action. The Cavaliers fell behind early in the second half after a scoreless

first half, but evened the score with 19 minutes remaining when Seth Bensman was fouled in the box and converted on a penalty kick. “After Yellow Springs scored we made a lineup change,” said Lehman coach Tom Thornton. “We took Seth out of defense and put him up front, and took Zach Taylor out of midfield and put him on defense. This gave us more speed up front and with Zach taking the goal kicks with the wind, the ball would get over the half line and past their midfield. Seth timed one

of Zach’s kicks perfectly and got behind the defense and the only option they had was to foul him. And he converted.” With rainouts, Lehman plays six games in the next 14 days heading into the tournament.

Jackets fall 1-0 Sidney lost at home Saturday 1-0 to Miamisburg in Greater Western Ohio crossover action. The loss left Sidney at 7-4-2. Miamisburg is 7-5. The JV team won 2-0 on goals by Luke Dahlinghaus and Austin Epperley.

Hanayik’s 5 goals lead Sidney The scoring started just two minutes into the game when Kaitlyn Davis took a free kick from just over half and found Tina Echemann for the header into the goal. The rest of the day would be dominated by Sidney’s Monique Hanayik, who scored the other five goals for the Lady Jackets. “Miamisburg was double marking our leading scorer (Morgan Knasel) so we were able to give Monique some great opportunities,” said Goffena. “That’s the great thing about our offensive threats. Teams

have to mark both of them because they are equally dangerous. Morgan has had some great games, so when they chose to double mark her, Monique was able to take advantage.” Konner Harris had two assists and Davis, Lauren Elmore and Echemann one apiece. Miamisburg also had a great goal scorer (Erica Ytterbo),” said Goffena. “But the defense did an excellent job of limiting her touches.” SDN Photo/Todd B.

MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — Steve Stricker stared blankly across the fairway, his hand on his face, as the celebration went on around him. Jim Furyk had his moment of despair a few minutes earlier, leaning over with his hands on his knees as if he were trying to keep from getting sick after his final putt on the 18th green slid by the hole. They were supposed to be the backbone of the U.S. Ryder Cup team, the veteran players captain Davis Love III could count on when things got tough. Love picked them both to do just that after they didn’t qualify for the team on their own. But the stifling pressure of the Ryder Cup was simply too much. Both had great chances to give the U.S. the point — or even halfpoint — the home team desperately needed to win the Cup when everything started to go bad. Both failed, leading to a home-team collapse unlike any in Ryder Cup history. All Furyk needed to do was par one of the last two holes to get a half-point, and couldn’t. Stricker needed pars on the final two holes, and didn’t make them. And in the end all they could do was watch

RYDER CUP as Martin Kaymer made a 6-foot par putt that sealed their fate. “We put a lot of expectations on ourselves to perform,” Stricker said. “And sometimes it’s good and bad.” For Stricker, it was a terrible ending to what had already been a lousy week. He was sent out three times with Tiger Woods to win points on the first two days, only to come back empty each time. Had he and Woods been able to contribute even something, a big U.S. lead going into the last day might have been insurmountable. But they were beaten each time, twice in better ball and once in alternate shot. That didn’t keep Love from following his plan to send Stricker and Woods off in the final two pairings Sunday. It hardly looked as if they would be needed with the U.S. leading 10-6 going into singles play, but Love felt better having them there just in case. “We put who we thought was our hot players up front and we put who we thought was our steady players in the back that would get us points,” Love said. “We

just got a couple matches flipped there in the middle that cost us.” Love will likely be second-guessed for the next two years on his lineup, but for most of the afternoon it looked as though it was playing out to plan. The Europeans were winning points early ‚Äî and lots of them ‚Äî but Furyk was holding steady in the eighth match and Stricker and Woods were holding their own in the final two matches. Furyk, who admitted the moment got the better of him this year when he fell apart after leading the U.S. Open on the back nine, had made four birdies against a single bogey and was 1 up on Sergio Garcia when the two got to the tee of the tricky par-3 17th hole. But he put his tee shot in an awkward position in the back bunker and couldn’t get up-and-down, and then compounded his error by hitting his tee shot on the 18th hole into a fairway bunker. Furyk put his second shot on the back fringe of the green but ran his first putt 6 feet by. After Garcia two-putted for his par, Furyk had his putt for a half-point that would prove crucial to the U.S. chances of winning the cup.

All about the newspaper

Word of the Week paragraph — a self-contained unit of a discourse in writing dealing with a particular point or idea

Newspaper Knowledge Survey your classmates or your family to find out which sections of the newspaper are everyone’s favorites. Make a graph of the results. If you were going to add a new section to the newspaper, what would it be? Why? Which section do you think young people read most often? Go online to find out about newspapers that have special sections written for or by young people. Write a report telling what you learned about these sections. Do you think they are a good idea?

Printing and Delivering the News Most newspapers today use some kind of offset printing. That means that the page image is etched onto a thin plate that is mounted on the printing press. The inked image is then transferred onto a rubber roller that sends the image onto paper. Most inks are made of vegetable oils, such as soy.

Write On! Go online to find out about the history of the printing press. Write a brief summary of what you learned.

NIE Coordinator: Dana Wolfe / Graphic Designer: Scarlett E. Smith

What is News? News is hard to define. One definition says that something is news if it has "the quality of being sufficiently interesting to be reported in news bulletins." Of course, that is a pretty broad area. News might be anything from a natural disaster to a human achievement or failure – or even something that is just so odd and funny it makes the news. News also has been defined this way: When dog bites man, it's not news; when man bites dog, it is. Can you see the difference? Talk about it with your class or your family. As you read the newspaper, you might wonder why certain stories are in the news and why some of those are on the front page. Each day, editors decide which stories to include and which to place on page one. Know your newspaper. Get to know your newspaper by going on a scavenger hunt to find each of these items. Write the page number on which you found each one. Index page ____________________ A help-wanted ad page ____________________ A photo of a politician page ____________________ An example of good news page ____________________ A funny comic strip page ____________________ A display ad for clothing page ____________________ The name of a foreign country page ____________________ The weather report page ____________________ Stories get into the newspaper for lots of different reasons Choose a story from today's front page and analyze it for each of the following reasons. You may want to do some Internet research to help you investigate further and answer each question about the story. Headline of your chosen story: __________________________ __________________________ Timeliness: Is it happening right now? __________________________

__________________________ Relevance: Is it of local interest? __________________________ __________________________ Magnitude: Is it a story that affects a great number of people? __________________________ __________________________ Unexpectedness: Is it unusual, or did it happen without warning? __________________________ __________________________ Conflict: Does the story invoke a major struggle? __________________________ __________________________ Continuity: Is the story following up on an earlier story? __________________________ __________________________ Emotion: Are emotions such as fear, jealousy, love and hate involved? __________________________ __________________________ Progress: Is it a story of new hope or achievement? __________________________ __________________________

Newspaper Sections No two newspapers are exactly alike. A newspaper reflects its community. What the newspaper looks like, then, depends on where it is and what is important to its community. The community essentially “builds” its newspaper based on its values. Sections vary from newspaper to newspaper. Most newspapers have sections for local news, national news and international news to tell readers what is currently happening. Most newspapers have a features section that informs readers about the day-today life of the community. There, readers find human-interest stories and information about upcoming events. While the news sections deal mostly with facts, the features section offers a perspective beyond just the facts. Most newspapers also have a sports section, in which readers can follow their favorite teams locally and beyond. You might find a food section in your newspaper, with recipes as well as ads for

local supermarkets. All of these sections allow readers to customize their newspaper reading experience. They can choose to read what interests them. The sections also give advertisers the power to reach the audience they most want. Here’s an example. A 2006 report from the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) shows that of women in the to 50 newspaper markets, 86 percent read the main news section. But only 45 percent of the women read the sports section. If you were promoting a product for women, then wouldn’t you want to place your ad in the news section, where more women would be likely to see it? What do you think is the most widely read section of the newspaper? The same NAA report reveals that it’s main news with 86 percent of all adult readers, followed by local news with 83 percent.

Notable Newspaper Quotations “The newspaper fits the reader’s program while the listener must fit the broadcaster’s program.” — Kingman Brewster “There is an urgent need for Americans to look deeply into themselves and their actions, and musical poetry is perhaps the most effective mirror available. Every newspaper headline is a potential song.” — Phil Ochs “You can never get all the facts from just one newspaper, and unless you have all the facts, you cannot make proper judgements about what is going on.” — Harry S. Truman “Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” — Thomas Jefferson

Forestry Field Day Botkins FFA members compete at the Big ‘E’ plans finalized The Shelby Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual Forestry Field Day will be held on Oct. 21 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Denny Ziegenbusch farm located at 5582 State Route. 705, Fort Loramie. The public is invited to come out and walk the woods with the ODNR Service Forester and listen to discussions about timber management, timber sales and tree identification. A portable sawmill will be in operation. The kids won’t want to miss the candy scramble at 2:15, followed by Smokey Bear’s visit at 2:30. There will be forestry crafts for children, a “Touchy Feely Box” and face painting. Wood carvers and a chain saw sculptor will be set up, turning wood into sculptures. Peel apples by hand and check out the honey bee display. It’s not uncommon as you drive around the county to see timber being harvested from our local, privately owned woodlots. A harvest from a well managed woodlot may take place once every 20 or 30 years so the process can be confusing. The Ohio State University (OSU) has a fact sheet available that will make the process less stressful. “Getting the Most from Your Timber Sale” is available on OSU’s web site. It’s filled with helpful information for marketing timber. The following is taken from this fact sheet: Approximately 84 percent of Ohio’s woodland is privately owned. Each year many of these individuals receive significant income from their woodlands by properly marketing timber. By folmanagement lowing guidelines in the selection of those trees to be harvested, and those to be left standing, the health and vigor of a woodlot as well as its quality for other uses will be improved. However,

Conservation in the county

some woodland owners sell their timber for only a fraction of its value because they do not market it properly. If you are thinking about selling timber or if you are approached with an offer to buy some of your timber, don’t jump too quickly. Taking time to find out what you have to sell, then choosing the appropriate method of marketing will usually result in substantially more income and satisfaction for the seller. There are guidelines to help landowners market timber. They are not meant as a substitute for advice and assistance from a professional forester, but rather to help you, as a landowner to understand and implement proper timber marketing procedures. There are eight important steps for effectively marketing timber from private woodlands: 1. Determine your reasons for selling timber. 2. Determine the specific trees to cut. 3. Estimate the timber volume to cut. 4. Select the proper timber sale method. 5. Advertise the timber sale. 6. Select the buyer. 7. Enter into a contract with the buyer. 8. Monitor the harvesting operation. Each of these steps is gone into with more detail on this fact sheet. If you have little or no expe-

BOTKINS — On Sept. 14, four members of the Botkins FFA Chapter and their adviser, Chad Berning, traveled to West Springfield, Mass., to represent the state of Ohio at The Big “E”. Competing for the team were juniors Michaela Kramer and Derek Shaffer and sophomores Lucas Buehler and Kyle Moellenkamp. This past spring, the team qualified for The Big “E” after placing second in the state FFA General Livestock Judging contest. During the competition, the team had to individually evaluate nine classes of livestock, give

oral reasons on three of the classes, and take a 50 question written exam based on livestock and livestock production. They also had two team activities, which included a keep/cull activity and a 10 question worksheet based on one of the classes they evaluated. The team competed against some of the top teams in Delaware, Connecticut, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey, totaling about 30 individuals. On Sept. 15, the team attended the FFA banquet, and received their awards. As a team, they

placed fourth overall at the contest, and Michaela Kramer placed fifth overall individually, both of which earned plaques. Lucas Buehler placed 11th, Kyle Moellenkamp placed 13th and Derek Shaffer placed 20th. While in Massachusetts, the team also had the opportunity to tour the city of Boston and take a harbor tour of the Boston Harbor. They were able to see many popular attractions, including Fenway Park, the U.S. Constitution boat, and the place where the Boston Tea Party occurred, among many others.

Click ‘like’ to fight hunger MADISON, Wis. — In the coming year, almost one in five U.S. children will face the risk of hunger. But a simple “like” on American Family Insurance’s Facebook page, can help change that. From now until Oct. 31, American Family will support the National Organization’s FFA Rally to Fight Hunger by donating $1 for every new Facebook “like”– up to $20,000. “The lack of access to nutritious food impacts

many families, and it is particularly tough on children, making it harder for them to succeed in school,” says Michele Wingate, social media manager at American Family Insurance. “Our Facebook effort will help by donating to this important cause and by getting people thinking about the issue of hunger.” The National FFA Organization’s Rally to Fight Hunger takes place Oct. 24-26 during its 85th National FFA

Convention & Expo in Indianapolis. At Lucas Oil Stadium, more than 10,000 FFA members and volunteers will pack 1 million meals to help needy families across the country. American Family’s donation will fund as many as 50,000 prepackaged meals. For more information, visit American Family’s Facebook page, or watch this YouTube video.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good day at work for you, because you willingly accept your duties and obligations. Furthermore, your coworkers are cooperative, especially those who are older or more experienced. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Romance with someone older might begin today. All relationships will flourish, because both parties have a sense of fair play and what is expected of each other. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is an excellent day to make purchases for your home or family. Whatever you buy will be practical, beautiful and long-lasting. (Good bargain!) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Negotiations with others will go well today. Both parties know what is expected, plus people want practical, long-range solutions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is an excellent day for business and commerce. Trust your moneymaking ideas, because they’ll be profitable for a long time in the future. Shop for practical, long-lasting items. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You feel very fair-minded today when dealing with others. You instinctively know what needs to be done or said, and others appreciate this. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Because your sense of duty is strong today, you will put the wants of others before your own. You simply want to offer whatever is needed. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Value the advice of someone who is older or more experienced than you, because it will benefit you today. People can help you in practical ways. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Those in positions of authority will be impressed by you today because you seem to be solid, practical and full of insight into situations. Others will seek your advice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a great day to take up a new study or to learn a new technique. You have the patience and concentration necessary to do this, along with the commitment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You’ll be very sensible when dealing with shared property and matters pertaining to wills, inheritances, debt, taxes and estates. You just want to get the job done. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is an excellent day to talk to partners and close friends in order to seek solutions for problems. People are of like minds in wanting to get things done in a nuts-and-bolts way. YOU BORN TODAY You have a charismatic personality because you have charm, wit and intelligence. However, you are disarmingly frank and are not afraid to express your opinions. (You get away with controversial comments because of your diplomacy and humor.) Many of you are concerned about politics and the society around you. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
