Sheriff Dean Kimpel was arraigned Thursday afternoon in Shelby County Common Pleas Court on five counts of unauthorized use of the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway computer system. Kimpel showed no emotion as he entered the courtroom to enter his plea in the case. This is the second time he has entered a plea in eight days — the first was a written plea in Auglaize County Common Pleas Court on Sept. 27 on sexual battery charges. Kimpel entered his plea before Judge James Stevenson as his attorneys, Michael Rumer and Zachary Maisch, of Lima, stood on each side of him. Kimpel’s only comment

during the proceedings was to respond, “I’m not guilty, your honor” when asked to enter his plea. Rumer asked Stevenson for a “nominal” own recognizance (OR) bond since he had been required to pay 10 percent of $100,000 or $10,000 bond in the Augaize County case. Kimpel paid a $63 OR bond and was released on his own recognizance in the case. Stevenson told those present that he was removing himself from the case and a judge from another county will handle all future proceedings in the case. That judge will be appointed by the Ohio Supreme Court. Kimpel was indicted by a Shelby County grand jury on See KIMPEL/Page 3A

Blankenship arraigned BY JENNIFER BUMGARNER A Port Jefferson police officer appeared in Shelby County Common Pleas Court Wednesday for his arraignment. Michael Blankenship, 30, of Bellefontaine, a parttime village of Port Jefferson policeman pleaded not guilty Blankenship to charges of inducing panic, vandalism and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle. He is alleged to have called Shelby County dispatch saying a passenger in a passing vehicle had pointed a handgun at him and as he pursued the vehicle shots had been fired at him. In subsequent calls, he reported he had returned fire through the windshield of his cruiser and that he had been involved in a crash and was injured. After deputies, state troopers and rescue personnel responded, and sheriff’s detectives intervened, it was determined Blankenship’s reports had been fabricated. No one had pointed a gun at him and he had not been shot at. The police cruiser, however, had sustained damage from what is believed to have been contact with a guard rail and three shots had been fired through its windshield from inside the vehicle. Blankenship could get up to four years in prison if convicted.

Sept. 29 on five counts of unauthorized use of the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG) after the jury heard evidence in the case that was presented by Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal, who is serving as special prosecutor in the case. Kimpel, 57, of the Botkins area, was charged with misuse of OHLEG after he allegedly looked up background on a number of individuals for personal reasons not related to his duties as sheriff. Unauthorized use of OHLEG is a fifth degree felony punishable by up to 12 months in jail on each count. Following the arraignment, Nasal said, “this is the first step in the proceedings” involving the OHLEG case. “The evidence will be more fully explained and laid out at trial.” OHLEG is a secure web-based tool administered by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. It allows law enforcement officials to obtain information regarding criminals and crime related matters. OHLEG was introduced in 2003 and provides personal details on individuals. OHLEG provides information such as the name, address, social security number, physical description, age, photo, driver’s license information, criminal record, a list of all vehicles registered to the individual in his or her lifetime, prison records, FBI numbers, sex offender status and other information. Information can be checked on OHLEG by using an individual’s address and can also prodetailed vide information about the individual’s neighbors. Because OHLEG is user specific and rea password, quires searches by law enforce-

From Page 1 ment officials are recorded and that information can be obtained through an audit. Those conducting the audit are able to determine whether OHLEG was accessed from a private computer IP address or a work related computer to help determine possible misuse of the system. Nasal has not yet released the names of those Kimpel looked up using OHLEG. Kimpel is currently facing charges in Auglaize County after he was indicted by an Auglaize County grand jury on one charge of sexual battery, a third degree felony. The charge is the result of a claim by former Sheriff ’s Deputy Jodi Van Fossen, who claims that on July 24, 2010, Kimpel sexually assaulted her at her home in Auglaize County. Kimpel was arrested on that charge and later posted bond and returned to his job as Sheriff. Kimpel has refused to resign, despite calls from the Shelby County Republican Party for him to resign. Nasal has filed a request with the Ohio Supreme Court and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office to suspend Kimpel’s term pending the outcome of his case. Kimpel is not allowed to carry a weapon while under indictment for a felony. Van Fossen filed a civil suit against Kimpel and Sheriff ’s Capt. Michael Eilerman in federal court, making work related claims against Kimpel and Eilerman including harrassment and intimidation, along with other claims. A mediation meeting was scheduled in the lawsuit today. A pretrial hearing in the Auglaize County case is scheduled for Oct. 21 at 9:30 a.m.

Piqua woman dies in one-vehicle crash PIQUA — Authorities identified a 28-year-old Piqua woman as the victim of a single-car collision at the intersection of Brown and Stillwell roads Monday afternoon. According to the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office, the driver of the vehicle was Elizabeth Slife, who lost control of her vehicle at approximately 3:45 p.m. Deputies said Slife

lost control of her vehicle, went off of the road, into a ditch, veered across the road again and collided with the pole. She was pronounced dead at the scene, which is just west outside the city of Piqua in Washington Township. A crash report stated no other vehicles were involved in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.

To the editor: When I was searching the country for sculptors for the first Botkins Sculpture Invitational, I found a great artist in nearby Urbana. When Mike Major drove up to deliver his sculptures for the show, I panicked. He had a couple of eight-foot-tall sculptures sticking out of his truck … and we didn’t have a crane to unload them. Before I had a chance to do anything about it I saw Mike walking up with one of the sculptures on his shoulder. It was a lightweight resin cast. I’ve had the honor to become friends with Mike since then. His life is an amazing story of artistic success. He just finished a bronze eagle with an 14foot wingspan for Ashland University as well as a sculpture for Urbana making use of a twisted Ibeam from the Twin Towers. Mike worked his way through college drawing houses and then knocking on doors asking if the owners would like to buy the drawings. He went on to draw the buildings of New York, which was published as a book that still sells today. He’s done collections of books and even bought a printing company to control the quality of the books. He’s taught art at Urbana University, as well as from his studio in Urbana, a large downtown building that serves as studio and showcase for his work. His success has allowed him to learn to fly and purchase his own plane, to ski great locations around the world, to purchase vacation homes including one on Indian Lake where he can sail his sailboat or enjoy his powerboat. When you meet Mike, the thing that impresses you most is his personality. He wants to help — individuals, art groups, or the community. I hope you’ll take the time to meet Mike during the opening for a show of his work, “My Life Up Until Now,” Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Gateway Arts Council gallery. You can see Mike’s work at Dan Knepper 104 Jackson St. Jackson Center

Risky pregnancy drug raised daughters’ cancer odds BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE A drug that millions of pregnant women took decades ago to prevent miscarriage and complications has put their daughters at higher risk for breast cancer and other health problems that are showing up now, a new federal study finds. Many of these daughters, now over 40, may not even know of their risk if their mothers never realized or told them they had used the drug, a synthetic estrogen called DES. The new study suggests that infertility is twice as common and that breast cancer risk is nearly doubled in these daughters. Debbie Wingard is one of them. The 59-year-old San Diego woman adopted two boys after being unable to conceive and has had breast cancer twice — when she was 39 and 49. “There’s no knowing what’s going to happen as we age. There’s always the fear there’s going to be another cancer or another outcome,” she said. “I don’t think I’ll ever get to the point where I feel it’s behind me.” The sons of DES users also face health risks — testicular problems and cysts — but these are less well studied and don’t seem to be as common. Even less is known about the third generation — grandchildren.” “DES Some research suggests these girls start menstruating late and have irregular periods, possible signs of fertility issues down the road. In the United States alone, more than 2 million women and 2 million men are thought to have been exposed to DES while in the womb and may now want to talk with their doctors about when they should be screened for health problems. “We don’t want to cause a panic of everyone rushing out thinking

White, a breast cancer survivor and a DES daughter who lives in Centerburg, north of Columbus, said she had a misshaped uterus and reproductive problems, and found a lump last year that turned out to be breast cancer. they’re going to get cervical or breast cancer. They just need to have that conversation with their physician,” said Dr. Sharmila Makhija, women’s health chief at University of the Louisville. The average woman has about a 1 in 50 chance of developing breast cancer by age 55; for DES daughters it’s 1 in 25, the study found. Risks for other health problems vary. DES, or diethylstilbestrol, was widely used in the United States, Europe and elsewhere from the 1940s through the 1960s to prevent miscarriage, premature birth, bleeding and other problems. Many companies made and sold it as pills, creams and other forms. Studies later showed it didn’t work. The government told doctors to stop using it in pregnancy in 1971, after DES daugh-

ters in their late teens and 20s were found to be at higher risk of a rare form of vaginal cancer. Further research has tied DES to infertility and various pregnancy problems. “They’ve been identified one at a time. Nobody’s been able to get the whole picture,” said Dr. Robert Hoover, a researcher at the National Cancer Institute. The new study, which he led, “takes the woman and looks at everything that can happen as a result of this drug,” and adds evidence for some previously suspected risks like breast cancer, he said. Results are in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. The study started in 1992 and involved about 4,600 DES daughters and a comparison group of 1,900 similar women whose mothers had not used DES. Their health was tracked over time through surveys and medical records. Their average age at the last followup was 48. In the study, researchers found these rates of health problems in DES daughters compared to non-exposed women: • Breast cancer, 3.9 percent versus 2.2 percent. • Cervical pre-cancer, 6.9 percent versus 3.4 percent. • Infertility, 33.3 percent versus 15.5 percent. • Early menopause, 5.1 percent versus 1.7 percent These complications were seen among women who were able to become pregnant: • Preterm delivery, 53.3 percent versus 17.8 percent. • Miscarriage, 50.3 percent versus 38.6 percent. • Tubal pregnancy, 14.6 percent versus 2.9 percent. • Stillbirth, 8.9 percent versus 2.6 percent. • Preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy), 26.4 percent

Missing Ohio woman found dead in Italy Italian media reported that her mother arrived Wednesday and met with investigators. Stacy Lilly, a close friend of the family in Columbus, Ohio, said Owens’ mother, Cindy Owens, arrived in Italy on Wednesday and was in shock over the news while trying to confirm the details of her daughter’s death with Italian authorities. Lilly, 38, said Allison Owens had been in her wedding and was “like my sister.” She said friends and family were in disbelief. “She was the most amazing, life-loving per-

Asian elephant to move to Denver POWELL (AP) — An Asian elephant born seven years ago at the Columbus Zoo is moving to a new home at the Denver Zoo. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium said Tuesday that Bodhi will move to Colorado by the end of the year with plans to have him sire calves to increase diverse Asian elephant zoo populations. The elephant’s new home on 10 acres in the Denver Zoo’s Asian Trop-

ics has five elephant yards that can house eight to 12 elephants. Bodhi’s 2004 birth marked the first successful Asian elephant birth at the Columbus Zoo. Assistant Curator Harry Peachey says Bodhi has not been part of the social group of two female elephants there because, in the wild, Asian elephant social groups are mostly related females and males leave early in life.

ROME (AP) — The body of an American woman missing in Tuscany for t h r e e days was f o u n d We d n e s day beside a b u s y Owens r o a d way in what appears to be a hit-and-run accident, Italian police said. Carabinieri Col. Antonio Frassinetto told a news conference that the body of Allison Owens, 23, of Columbus, Ohio, was found in a canal beside the heavily trafficked road in San Giovanni Valdarno. Tests have been ordered to determine the cause of death, but investigators believe she had been jogging. Owens may have been using an iPod and not heard a car approaching, Frassinetto said. Owens was a guide for a tour company. She was last seen alive Sunday afternoon, and more than 100 police using dogs searched for her after friends reported her missing.

versus 13.7 percent. The claim of added breast cancer risk is being tested by 53 women in a lawsuit against DES makers under way now in Boston. One of them is Jackie White, 48, who lives in Centerburg, Ohio, north of Columbus. She said she had a misshaped uterus and reproductive problems, and found a lump last year that turned out to be breast cancer. Tests showed 20 tumors in one breast, two pre-cancers in the other and spread to her lymph nodes. “I ate a low-fat diet. I exercise faithfully so I was not overweight. I had none of the normal risk factors,” she said. When and how often to screen women for breast cancer is the subject of much debate. A government task force recommends that women at average risk of breast cancer get mammograms every other year starting at age 50, and talk to their doctors about screening before then. Many medical groups urge starting at age 40. DES exposure needs to be considered with the whole picture of a woman’s risk, said Dr. G. Wright Bates, director of reproductive medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. “In some cases, frequent Pap smears and early mammography or breast MRI may be warranted for women with DES exposure,” he said. Others are focused on possible risks to the next generation. Sally Keely, who was part of the federal study, and her husband are both offspring of women who took DES during pregnancy. Keely, 49, of Kalama, Wash., had miscarriages and a tubal pregnancy and required fertility treatments to have a daughter, now 9. “I would like to push for more funding on the third generation exposed so I would know best how to advise my daughter,” she said.

Singer is now doctor LONDON (AP) — Pop princess Kylie Minogue has received an honorary doctorate for her work raising awareness of breast cancer. The singer, who was diagnosed with the disease in 2005, was made an honorary Doctor of Health Sciences by Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, southern England. Wearing a doctoral cap and gown, Minogue told students at Wednesday’s graduation ceremony that being diagnosed with cancer made her “appreciate at first hand the hard work that goes on to support patients through it.” Minogue underwent chemotherapy and surgery before resuming a career that has made her a superstar in Britain and her native Australia. Her well-publicized diagnosis has been credited with encouraging young women to undergo screening — the so-called “Kylie effect.”

Palin won’t run in 2012 WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday she will not run for president, leaving little doubt that the eventual Republican nominee will come from the current field of contenders. After months of leaving her fans guessing, Palin said in a statement that she and her husband Todd “devote ourselves to God, family and country.” She said her decision maintains that order. Palin sent the statement to supporters. She told conservative radio host Mark Levin that she would not consider a third party candidacy because it would assure President Barack Obama’s reelection.

Apple co-founder dies CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — Steve Jobs, the Apple founder and former CEO who invented and masterfully marketed ever-sleeker gadgets that transformed everyday technology, from the personal computer to the iPod and iPhone, has died. He was 56. Apple announced his death without giving a specific cause. “We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” the company said in a brief statement. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve” Jobs had battled cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems. He took another leave of absence in January — his third since his health problems began — before resigning as CEO six weeks ago. Jobs became Apple’s chairman and handed the CEO job over to his handpicked successor, Tim Cook. The news Apple fans and shareholders had been dreading came the day after Apple

Oktoberfest goes wet CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) — With German roots and Bible Belt values, the north Alabama town of Cullman marked Oktoberfest for decades with oompah music, lederhosen and bratwurst, but no beer. Now the party long billed as the world’s only dry Oktoberfest is finally going wet. Organizers tapped a keg for the first time Monday at Cullman’s Oktoberfest, ending an autumn prohibition in a town of 14,000 that had banned alcohol sales outright until church leaders lost that fight last fall. Hundreds of people sipped beer and cheered at a stein-hoisting contest Monday night. A blockedoff downtown street was full of people enjoying $4 drafts; a few men wore traditional German pants and socks; couples washed down brats and spicy pretzels with brew.

forced out a decade later and returned in 1997 to rescue the company. During his second stint, it grew into the most valuable technology company in the world with a market value of $351 billion. Only Exxon Mobil, which makes it money extracting and refining

oil instead of ideas, is worth more. Cultivating Apple’s countercultural sensibility and a minimalist design ethic, Jobs rolled out one sensational product after another, even in the face of the late-2000s recession and his own failing health. He helped change computers from a geeky hobbyist’s obsession to a necessity of modern life at work and home, and in the process he upended not just personal technology but the cellphone and music industries. For transformation of American industry, he ranks among his computerage contemporary, Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and other creative geniuses such as Walt Disney that left an indelible imprint on the world. Jobs died as Walt Disney Co.’s largest shareholder, a by-product of his decision to sell computer animation studio Pixar in 2006. Perhaps most influentially, Jobs in 2001 launched the iPod, which offered “1,000 songs in your pocket.” Over the next 10 years, its white earphones and thumb-dial control seemed to become more ubiquitous than the wristwatch.

Ridiculed Israeli scientist wins Nobel

Gunman on the loose CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — The search for a disgruntled employee accused of killing three co-workers and injuring six others at a Northern California limestone quarry brought SWAT teams in armored vehicles to the normally quiet streets of Silicon Valley on Wednesday. The hunt for Shareef Allman of San Jose began after authorities said he opened fire at a routine safety meeting at Permanente Quarry around 4:15 a.m. and later wounded a woman in a failed carjacking.

Fred Shuttlesworth, who was hailed by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. for his courage and energy, died Wednesday at the Birmingham, Ala. hospital. He was 89.

MLK inspiration dead at 89 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — At one end of the fire hose were officers deployed by Bull Connor, the notoriously racist police commissioner fond of telling his men to use sticks, dogs and whatever else was necessary to scatter peaceful black protesters. At the business end was the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, the Birmingham, Ala., preacher who — as much or more than any of his contemporaries, the leaders of the civil rights movement — had a penchant for putting himself in harm’s way in the name of equality. Shuttlesworth, who survived bombings, beatings and that 1963 encounter with the fire hose that left him with chest injuries, died Wednesday at 89 at Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham, relatives and hospital officials said, half a century after his repeated refusals to back down to Connor and the Ku Klux Klan helped even the fight for civil rights in the

South and beyond. “When God made Bull Connor, one of the real negative forces in this country, He was sure to make Fred Shuttlesworth,” said the Rev. Joseph Lowery, a fellow pioneer in the movement. Shuttlesworth, a truck driver turned Baptist minister, never gained the kind of fame outside his native Alabama bestowed on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other luminaries. But without him, King might not have sent his forces to Birmingham when he did. “Fred didn’t invite us to come to Birmingham,” said Andrew Young, the former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador who served as an aide to King. “He told us we had to come.” Shuttlesworth became pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Birmingham in 1953 and soon began openly challenging segregation despite repeated arrests and attempts on his life.

JERUSALEM (AP) — When Israeli scientist Dan Shechtman claimed to have stumbled upon a new crystalline chemical structure that seemed to violate the laws of nature, colleagues mocked him, insulted him and exiled him from his research group. After years in the scientific wilderness, though, he was proved right. And on Wednesday, he received the ultimate vindication: the Nobel Prize in chemistry. The lesson? “A good scientist is a humble and listening scientist and not one that is sure 100 percent in what he read in the textbooks,” Shechtman said. The shy, 70-year-old Shechtman said he never doubted his findings and considered himself merely the latest in a long line of scientists who advanced their fields by challenging the conventional wisdom and were shunned by the establishment because of it. In 1982, Shechtman discovered what are now called “quasicrystals” — atoms arranged in patterns that seemed forbidden by nature. “I was thrown out of my research group. They said I brought shame on them with what I was saying,” he recalled. “I never took it personally. I knew I was right and

they were wrong.” The discovery “fundamentally altered how chemists conceive of solid matter,” the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in awarding the $1.5 million prize. Since his discovery, quasicrystals have been produced in laboratories, and a Swedish company found them in one of the most durable kinds of steel, which is now used in products such as razor blades and thin needles made specifically for eye surgery, the academy said. Quasicrystals are also being studied for use in new materials that convert heat to electricity. Shechtman is a professor at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. He is the 10th Israeli Nobel winner, a great source of pride in a nation of just 7.8 million people. Shechtman fielded congratulatory calls from Israeli President Shimon Peres, who shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “Every citizen of Israel is happy today and every Jew in the world is proud,” Netanyahu said. Staffan Normark, permanent secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy, said Shechtman’s discovery was one of the few Nobel Prizewinning achievements that can be dated to a single day.

NYPD spied on informant NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department’s intelligence squad secretly assigned an undercover officer to monitor a prominent Muslim leader even as he decried terrorism, cooperated with the police, dined with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and was the subject of a Pulitzer Prize-winning series by The New York Times about Muslims in America. Sheikh Reda Shata was among those singled out for surveillance because of his “threat potential” and what the NYPD considered links to organizations associated with terrorism, despite having never been charged with any crime, according to secret police documents obtained by The Associated Press. This was life in America for Shata: a government partner in the fight against terrorism and a suspect at the same time. During his time at the Islamic Center of Bay Ridge since 2002, he welcomed FBI

agents to his mosque to speak to Muslims, invited NYPD officers for breakfast and threw parties for officers who were leaving the precinct. As police secretly watched Shata in 2006, he had breakfast and dinner with Bloomberg at Gracie Mansion and was invited to meet with Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, Shata recalls. “This is very sad,” Shata said after seeing his name in the NYPD file. “What is your feeling if you see this about people you trusted?” The dichotomy between simultaneously being partner and suspect is common among some of New York’s Muslims. Some of the same mosques that city leaders visited to hail their strong alliances with the Muslim community have also been placed under NYPD surveillance — in some cases infiltrated by undercover police officers and confidential informants.

The Senior Center of Sidney and Shelby County recently met for a carry-in meal. Bob Parker of United Way and David McKay, director of the center, served the entrée. The meal was donated by Dorothy Love. Julie Pleiman was introduced as the new instructor of exercise classes. “Growing Together United Way” is the theme for this year’s drive for the United Way, according to Parker, who spoke of the generosity of individuals and companies in Shelby County. Four hundred ninetyeight donors gave $500 or more. The goal for this year is $1.3 million. There are 26 agencies/programs supported with the collected funds. McKay is the division leader for the non-profits. Paul Workman, retired music teacher, demonstrated his collection of music machines. One was from 1904 that played a wax cylinder for two minutes. The 1912 Edison cylinder played for four minutes. A large bell mounted on the machines allowed the music to be heard. The bell was installed inside the cabinet in 1918 and the cylinder played for four minutes. He showed more recent record players with no bells and different sizes of records.

Teacher studies at Mount Vernon MOUNT VERNON, Va. — Historic Mount Vernon in Virginia welcomed teacher Heather Davidson, of Sidney, recently to participate in a week-long program to learn about the life and times of George Washington. The George Washington Teachers’ Institute provides an intensive study of Washington and his world through discussions led by noted Washington scholars and hands-on workshops. Davidson resided

on George Washington’s estate within view of his mansion and had the opportunity to meet with Mount Vernon’s historians, curators and educators. “This extraordinary institute has allowed me to develop a much deeper appreciation for the father of our country,” said Davidson. “I have immersed myself in the life and times of George Washington, which will have a huge impact in my classroom.” The Donald W.

Reynolds Museum and Education Center, which opened in 2006, was an essential tool for the visiting teachers. It contains galleries that tell Washington’s life story using hands-on and interactive exhibits, original movies and artifacts. Upon completing the program, teachers prepared lesson plans on George Washington and will conduct seminars for their colleagues in their home districts to share the information

they gained at the Institute. The Phoebe Apperson Hearst Learning Center, a section of the Education Center, served as a resource for teachers to learn how to incorporate George Washington and history into their lesson plans in a variety of subjects. It is a virtual library devoted to the life and times of our first president. This program is fully funded by private donations.

Church offers preschool mentoring Kidz Castle Preschool Mentoring Program, sponsored by Rogy’s Learning Place and Sidney Baptist Church, will accept referrals and applications for children between the ages of 3 and 5 for participation in the 2011-2012 mentoring session. The program meets the third Thursday of each month beginning Oct. 20 and ending May 18 at Sidney Baptist Church, 1322 E. Court St. Each session begins at 6 p.m. with dinner for the participants and ends at 7:30 p.m. The mission is to provide an opportunity for all children to participate in a meaningful relationship with a loving and caring adult in a safe and nurturing way. School officials believe in positive encouragement to enhance every child’s self image and joy of life. The children will participate in activities that allow them to develop

self-help skills as well as self-expression. These activities include food preparation and interactive play, which are designed to foster a sense of independence and

self-worth. Activities are created around child interest to allow the opportunity for social interaction and acceptance in a group setting. Anyone interested or

who knows someone who has a child that would benefit from this program is asked to contact Lisa Crutchfield at 4981030 for more information. Spaces are limited.

We also watch a lot of DVDs and take notes.” By participating in

Henry Engineers, Matt Ludwig, of Thomas and Marker Construction and Service Director Bob Drees were available for comment and questions concerning the close out of the waste water treatment plant upgrade. Village Administrator Jesse Kent thanked the men for their fine work throughout the $1.4 million project. The project was under 3 percent for total change orders and no service was lost during the entire construction window. In other business a motion passed to contract with Solicitor Stan Evans for two more years at his current legal rate. His current contract expires at the end of this year. It was also decided to wait until the ground freezes to remove cut wood off the park walking trails. More than likely the wood will be auctioned off to the public at that time.

BOTKINS — There were several guests at the Botkins Village Council’s recent meeting. James Hoskins, from Hoskins International, LLC, returned to followup on the village’s consideration of residential turbines. He was told that a recommendation was being sent to the planning commission for a possible zoning amendment. John Bergman, president of the Botkins Athletic Boosters, attended to ask the council’s permission to use village ground at the park for track events. The installation of the discus and shot put areas for the track will originate on booster land but the shot and discus will land on village land. The request was accepted with the condition that the village be named a rider on the booster’s insurance policy. Joe Hotz, of Jones and

BOTKINS — Recently the Botkins FFA General Livestock Judging Team won big at the Big E Livestock Expo in Massachusetts. Thea team, composed of seniors Jordan Fledderjohann, Jordan Marx, Seth Aufderhaar and junior Logan Russell took second place at the event. Awards were also presented for individuals with Fledderjohann receiving first place, Russell receiving third place, Marx placing eighth and Aufderhaar placing ninth. The competition put the team’s knowledge of

these events, the students gets a chance to get scholarships and can continue doing livestock judging in college. For Marx, all of the traveling has helped create a lot of connections. There are also many things that the students learn while participating. “From my standpoint, it has drastically helped my public speaking,” said Fledderjohann. “It also helps you on a oneto-one basis.” For Aufderhaar, it has helped build short-term memory because there are situations where they will need to state their reasoning for judging the livestock. This is the third year the team has traveled nationally and is a big accomplishment for a school. “This puts Botkins on the map,” said Russell.

Tips for healthy aging Growing older comes with its share of uncertainty. Health issues, managing finances and finding ways to stay active are all matters of concern. But with the right advice and preparation, senior citizens can take some of the worry out of the future. offers these tips and resources: • The National Institute on Aging offers a wealth of information on the aging process. Their publications cover a variety of issues including care-giving, age-related medical concerns, and the importance of planning and decision making. • Finances can cause some degree of insecu-

rity throughout life - and the senior years are no exception. Be sure to know the details behind savings and pension plans to avoid unwanted surprises, and know that you’re receiving their full benefits. • Medicine can play a significant role in the aging process. Be sure to use it properly, and don’t unknowingly put yourself at risk for harmful interactions. Also be sure to take all medications at the proper dosage and correct time increments. • Getting older doesn’t necessarily mean being less active. Put knowledge and skills to good use by volunteering — or expand your education.

• Healthy aging includes enjoying recreational activities and being able to take advantage of certain benefits that come with getting older — but it’s not just about a dollar or two off at the movies. See if you or your loved one is eligible for discounts on Amtrak, or national parks. Also check out tips for making traveling easier as you get older. Time is the one thing nobody can stop, and certain changes are inevitable as the years move on. Knowing where to go for information you can trust and what to expect can help you transition to and make the most of later stages of life.

Study: Disabled can live at home with proper care COLUMBUS — Many adults with disabilities who are currently living in a nursing home or bound for one can successfully return or remain at home with the right assistance according to a Scripps Gerontology Center report funded by the Ohio Department of Aging. The 14-month study

examined the effectiveness of the Nursing Home Diversion and Transition Initiative passed by the Ohio General Assembly in 2009. “The results of this study confirm that considering the individual’s care needs before the location of the care makes sense,” said Bonnie Kantor-Burman, director of the department.

Board concerned over funding issues Marian Spicer, a member of the Community Foundation Board, spoke to the Senior Center Board of Trustees at its September meeting. Funding programs and operating expenses for the center are concerns of members. Spicer suggested an ad hoc committee be formed to develop a process to in-

crease the foundation’s endowment fund. The cuts in government spending are affecting Sidney and the amount of its support for the Senior Center. Interim City Manager Tom Judy related the city will receive $3 million less from the state in a fiveyear period and the city will decrease its funding

His governing of it and with all your mind.” is wise and beneficial to (Matthew 22:37) We man. God is pure and in love him because he him no darkness exists. first loved us.

and provision for man. Christianity teaches that sin and guilt are universal: “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) The wreck and ruin of humanity, the bloody history of the past and present show that this is true. Our observation of sin causes us to conclude that Christianity is reasonable in its teachings.

True happiness

God exists and that he rewards those who seek him. It is impossible to please God without faith. (Hebrews 11:6) This faith and the goodness of God lead us to repentance. (Romans 2:4) We are led by that faith to obey God by being baptized for the forgiveness of our sins. (Galatians 3:27, Acts 22:16)

Dangerous path When we find ourselves on a dangerous path, common sense and reason tells us to stop and turn around. It is reasonable to believe and obey God. All the precepts and teaching of the Scriptures are reasonable and right. God has revealed his will and we can understand it because it is just and good. Truly reason is on the side of the Bible, God and Christianity.

Conference set The women of Solid Rock Pentecostal Church of God, 2745 State Route 29 North, will hold their ninth annual Women’s Conference Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The title of the conference is “A Sacred Romance,” which is based on John 15:12. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all those attending. There will be three speakers at the conference: evangelist Karen Rarey, of Ada, where she is the pastor of Ada Full Gospel Church; Rodney Bensman, who teaches a Sunday school class, teaches an adult day care class once a month and is a chaplain at Wilson Memorial Hospital; and evangelist Karen Cane, who is a Sunday school teacher and an active preacher and teacher of the Word at Greater Christ Temple Apostolic Church in Bellefontaine. Pastor Anthony Krummrey and the women of Solid Rock invite all women to attend and encourage them to bring their friends, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and grandmothers for a program of fellowship, learning and praise. Tickets may be purchased at the door for a $10 donation. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at no extra charge. For more information, call the church at 492-0770.

True happiness is impossible to one who loves sin and continues in it and therefore punishment for sin is reasonable. God is holy and righteous.

Sidney Daily News,Thursday, October 6, 2011

Program to deal ‘Summit Youth Rally’ set with Catholic schools’ future The Archdiocese of Cincinnati will host three presentations in early October, including one at Lehman Catholic High School in Sidney, to mark the first significant release of data for its developing unified vision for Catholic schools. The Lehman Catholic High School presentation will be Tuesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The public is invited. Last March, Dr. Jim Rigg, superintendent of Catholic Schools, announced an effort to define a common vision and strategic plan for the future of the 113 Catholic schools of the archdiocese. Since that time, a widespread effort has been under way to gather data on the current state of Catholic education. This data has been compiled into an initial Assessment Report that will be made public.

Rigg’s public presentations, scheduled to coincide with the release of this report, will offer a synopsis of this vision formation process so far and outline the major findings of the data that has been collected. “This will not be the release of our final vision and plan for Catholic schools,” Rigg stressed. “Rather, these presentations will portray the current state of Catholic school education in some key areas, including Catholic identity, academic effectiveness, finances, marketing, and other areas. In the months ahead, we will be going through this data and shaping our eventual vision.” The full assessment report and accompanying executive summary will be available online Friday at

Sidney Baptist Church 1322 E. Court St., invites the community to attend its “Summit Youth Rally 2011” Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. This rally features the music group The Marty Ford Experience. They are an up-and-coming contemporary Christian band that has performed alongside other bands such as Sanctus Real, event organizers said. “As a band, we seek to use music as a way to share the contagious love of God with those around us, regardless of the setting,” Ford said. Guest speaker will be Steve Whitaker. This rally is for youth at least 12 years old and adults. All denominations are welcome and encouraged to bring their church youth for a night of praise and worship. Admission is free.

doctor thought it was from the Fosamax I took. Another said it was from constant stress and a weakened immune system. What do you think causes it? — M.M. ANSWER: The cause is the herpes simplex virus, the same virus that causes cold sores. Recurrences are expected with herpes infections. The virus lives on in nerve cells and comes out of those cells from time to time to travel to, in your case, the eye. Antiviral eyedrops usually can combat a flare. Nothing eliminates the virus for good. An eye doctor should be taking care of you for this infection.

Homecoming 2011 ----- Start your engines! ----- NASCAR chosen as theme

Raceway royalty

Talladega night BY: JULIA HARRELSON


From NASCAR, to Disney, back to NASCAR, the theme of Homecoming has gone full circle. But NASCAR it is and now it is up to the creative minds to apply the theme for various Homecoming activities. The football game will be played on Friday, October 7, with the dance being the next day. As is tradition, each class will be making a banner for the parade around the track before the game. It will be very interesting to see how each class decorates their banner. This is one of the most original themes Lehman has had for their Homecoming, so it offers much creativity not only for banners, but the decoration of the gym for the dance. The senior class sponsors the dance which will be held in the DeLong gym on Saturday night. The seniors organize food, drinks, decorations, and music. No one should be surprised if they see signs in the gym that say,”Do It for Dale!” This phrase has become a very common one at Lehman, especially at the volleyball games. Almost everyone knows the famous NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt.

Besides all of the dancing, laughter, and bright lights, Homecoming also brings with it the crowning of a King and Queen. Every year, 14 members of the senior class are chosen for the court by the seniors. Then, the whole student body and teachers vote for the King and Queen. The Queen candidates are Meghan Bennett, Abby Ciriegio, Meghan Earhart, Kerrie Josefovsky, Colleen Kinninger, Amy Watercutter, and Maria Yannucci.The King candidates are Alex Baker, Michael Comer, David Freytag, Solomon King-White, Logan Monnin, Ben Thieman, and Matt Ulrich. These 14 seniors are heavily involved in activities in and out of school. Bennett has been involved in Academia, basketball, the Cavalier Crier and Cavalcade staff, Envirothon, honor roll, Interact, Mock Trial, NHS, Ohio Energy Project, Pro-Lifeguards, prom court, SAAC, softball, Student Ambassador, tennis, and 4-H. Ciriegio has participated in choir, Cavalier Crier and Cavalcade staff, honor roll, Interact, NHS, Pro-Lifeguards, Relay for Life, lector, Eucharistic Minister, soccer, Stock Club, and Student Ambassador. Earhart has been involved in Envirothon, honor roll, NHS, Pro-Lifeguards, prom court, Eucharistic Minister, Student Ambassador and volleyball. Josefovsky has been in Academia, choir, honor roll, musical, NHS, Pro-Lifeguards, Relay for Life, SAAC, Social Studies Shootout, softball, and tennis. Kinninger has been active in Academia, band, Cavalier Crier and Cavalcade staff, honor roll, Interact, Mock Trial, musical, NHS, Ohio Energy Project, Pro-Lifeguards, prom court, Relay for Life, Eucharistic Minister, SAAC, soccer, TEAMS-JETS, and 4-H. Watercutter has been involved in Cavalier Crier and Cavalcade staff, senior class president, honor roll, Interact, NHS, prom court, Relay for Life, lector, sacristan, Student Ambassador, swimming, and volleyball. Yannucci has been in basketball, Cavalier Crier and Cavalcade staff, choir, honor roll, NHS, Pro-Lifeguards, prom court, Relay for Life, Eucharistic Minister, Social Studies Shootout, Student Ambassador, and volleyball. Baker has been involved in basketball, honor roll, prom court, Stock Club, and tennis. Comer has been active in Academia, basketball, honor roll, NHS, Pro-Lifeguards, soccer, Student Ambassador, TEAMS-JETS, tennis, and CYO basketball. Freytag has participated in Academia, basketball, class officer, cross country, honor roll, Interact, NHS, prom court, Eucharistic Minister, Mass server, Science Olympiad, soccer, Student Ambassador, Student Council, TEAMS-JETS, tennis, Pro-Lifeguards, and Relay for Life. King-White has been in band, basketball, honor roll, NHS, Relay for Life, soccer, and jazz ensemble. Monnin has been involved in band, honor roll, musical, Ohio Energy Project, Pro-Lifeguards, Prom Court, Relay for Life, Jazz Combo, Stock Club, and 4-H. Thieman has been active in basketball, golf, honor roll, Prom Court, Relay for Life, Stock Club, Student Ambassador, and Mass lector. Ulrich has been involved in Academia, class officer, honor roll, NHS, Pro-Lifeguards, Prom Court, sacristan, soccer, Student Ambassador, TEAMS-JETS, tennis, and CYO basketball. The crowning takes place on Friday before the football game begins, and the elected couple will preside over the dance the following night. Best of luck to all of the court candidates!

The guy in the driver’s seat BY: MEGHAN BENNETT Having a Homecoming Grand Marshal has always been a tradition at Lehman High School. Every year, the senior class votes for a teacher or staff member to lead their Homecoming festivities. This year, the honor has been bestowed on Mr. Joe Harrmann. Harrmann is in his second year of teaching at Lehman. He is a graduate of Archbishop McNicholas High School in Cincinnati. Upon graduating from high school, Harrmann attended the University of Dayton. At Lehman, Mr. Harrmann teaches Introduction to Business, Business II, Accounting I and II, and Computer Applications I and II. He also helps coach the baseball team, is the freshman class advisor, and manages the Stock Club. Outside of school, Harrman enjoys playing golf, exercising, officiating, and spending time with his family, especially his wife, Kylee, who will accompany him to the Homecoming game and dance. As Grand Marshal, Harrmann is in the driver’s seat for this year’s “Nascar” themed Homecoming. He is responsible for announcing the court, leading the football parade, and supporting the people involved with Homecoming. “I am extremely excited about being Grand Marshal,” says Harrmann, “I feel very honored and proud to be elected. I’m hoping to represent Lehman very well and make the event fun and exciting.”

SHS blood drive will find the "Rebels with a Cause" BY TIARA BRANSCUM

Want to help save up to three lives? The opportunity is here! The first blood drive for SHS students and staff will be held on Friday, October 7th from 8AM to 1PM. This event will be held in the small gym. Those interested in donating must pick up a form from Mr.Bickel and sign up online at The registration code is 11822 for all students and staff. SHS donors will also get a free t-shirt for donating. If you give blood three times or more, you will be able to wear red cords with their caps and gown at graduation. Make sure you eat a good breakfast and drink plenty of water before donating. The top blood giver for the class of 2011 was Steven Jones, who donated 11 times(over a gallon of blood).

Interesting facts about blood donation

•Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. •More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day. •Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded. •One donation can help save the lives of up to three people. •Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors. •The average adult has about 10 pints of blood in his body. Roughly 1 pint is given during a donation. •A healthy donor may donate red blood cells every 56 days, or double red cells every 112 days.

The buzz on books BY ABBY WILKINS

Room by Emma Donoghue Room is the story of a five year old boy who has lived his entire life in a single room. He is the son of a kidnapped woman who has been forced to live in a homemade prison in the backyard of her captor. Jack was born and still lives under captivity. He has no idea of the entire world outside of the four walls of Room. I absolutely loved this book. I'm in love with how the author really does make it feel like the perspective is of a child, while the writing is extraordinary. Morbid and hopeful, innocent and disturbing, this book has a way of being contradictory to the point that you have to stop reading for a moment just to catch up. Very fascinating.

Jackets open North play

50 years ago October 6, 1961


Sidney’s freshman footballers dropped a 16-6 verdict to Troy’s freshmen at Troy Thursday. Neither team scored in the first quarter but Sidney broke the ice in the second as Don McDaniel swept end and rambled 55 yards for a touchdown.

Sidney will try again for that elusive first win of the season Friday night at Vandalia, but it will be a difficult task against the 5-1 Aviators. The Jackets open Greater Western Ohio Conference North play with the game, and will conclude the season with three more divisional matchups. And if head coach Adam Doenges’ is to be believed, they have their work cut out for them. “I think this is the best the other four teams in the North have been in three years,” Doenges said. “All four have been

pointing to this season. They all have numerous three-year starters. This is the best the North has been in a while. “We told the kids, we have a chance to make some team’s seasons go backwards,” he added. “All four, including Piqua (3-3), have a chance to make the playoffs. So we still have a lot to play for.” The Jackets dropped to 0-6 last week after losing at home to Springboro, which also came into the game without a win. “We improved on Friday,” said Doenges, just after watching the Sidney seventh grade team defeat Piqua Wednesday. “We did a lot of good things that we haven’t

been doing. A lot of things we did in practice we showed on the field. But when we make a mistake, it’s a big mistake, like an easy pick-six or a sloppy handoff that’s fumbled away. And the thing that’s hurt us it we don’t do a good job of coming back from a big mistake, and right there can be the ball game. So we have to do a better job of handling adversity.” Vandalia is a big and physical team, anchored up front by two offensive lineman who are going Division I next season, one to Notre Dame. “One is about 6-7 or 6-8 and 330 pounds, and the other is about 6-5 and 320,” said Doenges. “They’re big

Cards force game five ST. LOUIS (AP) — David Freese homered, doubled and drove in four runs as the St. Louis Cardinals tagged playoff nemesis Roy Oswalt and beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 Wednesday night, forcing a deciding fifth game in their NL division series. Center fielder Jon Jay made a sliding catch on Placido Polanco’s soft fly for the final out, and was already pointing his index finger before he got to his feet. Now it’s back to Philadelphia for Game 5 on Friday night. Roy Halladay, who won the opener for the Phillies, will face St. Louis ace Chris Carpenter.

So I look for them to run it right at us.” Vandalia running back Tyler Jones has already gone over the 1000-yard mark for the season, leading the GWOC with 1,104 so far. However, Doenges said he is doubtful for Friday’s game because of an injury. “We’ve prepared for Vandalia, but like every week, we have to worry about ourselves,” Doenges said. “We have to get over the mental mistakes, and that’s a lot of it.” Vandalia won its first five games, but was routed by Troy last week by a 49-15 final.

An omen, maybe: Right after Oswalt threw a pitch in the fifth, a squirrel darted across the plate. Albert Pujols was hitless in four at-bats in what could have been his final home game with the Cardinals. He received thunderous cheers every trip to the plate from a standing room crowd of 47,071, second-largest at 6year-old Busch Stadium. Pujols made his presence known on defense, catching Chase Utley going for an extra base in the sixth. Utley drew a leadoff walk and kept running on Hunter Pence’s grounder to short, but Pujols alertly jumped off first base to catch the throw and made a

sharp relay to third for the out. Edwin Jackson recovered from a rocky beginning to win his first playoff start. After giving up two runs on his first five pitches, he wound up throwing six solid innings. Jason Motte worked a perfect ninth for his second save of the series. Phillies cleanup hitter Ryan Howard was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. He is 0 for 8 the last two games with five strikeouts and has hit only one ball out of the infield. Oswalt had been 5-0 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 previous postseason starts, the biggest closing out old Busch Stadium and the Cardinals in 2005 to get Houston to its first World Series. The right-hander also worked seven shutout innings against St. Louis in the Phillies’ NL East division clincher in mid-September.

Lehman is 14th this week in Region 24 of the Division VI computer rankings, and that would seem to leave the Cavs out of the running for a playoff spot (top eight) with just four games to play. But hold on. Winners of three in a row to even their record at 3-3, the Cavs have a golden opportunity Friday to make a hbig jump in their region when they host Dayton Christian, a 5-1 D-V team. “This would put us right in the hunt,” said Lehman coach Dick Roll. “The kids know it’s a big computer points game, but the thing is going back to our goal at the beginning of the season. We want week 10 to mean something, and for it to mean a lot, we need to get this one.” The Cavaliers took a break from Metro Buckeye Conference play to slosh around in the mud last week at Upper Scioto Valley, a future league opponent when Lehman joins the Northwest Central Conference next season. The two teams battled each other in difficult conditions, and neither could score until the Cavs got a touchdown pass from freshman Nick Rourke to tight end Joe Vondenheuvel in the final period to pull out a 7-0 victory. “It was a mud game,” said Roll. “And that equalizes everything. The kids played hard and made plays when they had to, and it was a good call by coach Schmitz on the touchdown. It was a very, very sloppy game in terms of field conditions, and we were glad to get out of there with a win.” Roll was especially pleased that his team did not have a turnover in the game. “That’s amazing in that stuff,” he said. “We put the ball on the ground once or twice, but got right back on it. You couldn’t run real fast. But we had some good drives that we failed to finish off.” The Cavaliers take on a Dayton Christian team that is likely still hurting from the beatdown they took at the hands of Fort Loramie last week, a win that vaulted Loramie to the top of the region in the computer rankings. “Dayton Christian is 5-1, so they’re a good football team,” he said. “We’re going in with the idea that we want to be physical. We think we have a good game plan, and we’re going to take advantage of what they give us.” Kickoff is at 7:30 at Piqua’s Alexander Stadium.


Anna High School soccer star Kyleigh Overbey concluded an impressive week of play for the Lady Rockets, who have lost just once this season. She knocked in four goals to lead her team to a 10-1 win over Bethel, then recorded two assists as the Lady Rockets defeated Greenville.

triumph. He now has one more victory than younger brother Kyle. The Busch’s sit 26th and 27th on NASCAR’s all-time wins list — the highest ranked brothers-tandem in NASCAR. Terry and Bobby Labonte are next; Terry has 22 wins, Bobby 21, ranking 29th and 30th on the list.

CAREER CONSISTENCY Kurt Busch has won at least one race in 10 of his 11 full seasons on the NASCAR Sprint Cup tour. Only four current drivers can boast of having won at least one race in each of their seasons on the circuit: Tony Stewart (13 seasons), Jimmie Johnson (11), Kyle Busch (seven) and Denny Hamlin (six).


6. Kevin Harvick 7. Matt Kenseth 8. Kurt Busch 9. Kyle Busch

CREAM RISES Only three driv3 THE ers not in the Chase for the Sprint Cup have recorded top-5 finishes in the three playoff races thus far: Greg Biffle and Brian Vickers at New Hampshire and Kasey Kahne at Dover. No Chase driver has strung together three consecutive top-5 showings in the Chase yet. Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards are the closest, having gone two-for-three.

10. Ryan Newman 11. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 12. Clint Bowyer 13. AJ Allmendinger 14. Denny Hamlin 15. Greg Biffle Just off the lead pack: Jimmie Johnson

Attention race fans: Do not count Jimmie Johnson out of the Chase until he is mathematically eliminated (which probably will not happen). Thank you. That is all. The preseason favorite to unseat Johnson had a quiet regular season but has pieced together six straight top 10s — including runs of fourth, eighth and third in the Chase — to tie for the points lead. Stewart seemed resigned to the fact that Dover would be unkind ... and it was. Expect the team to regroup at Kansas, where Stewart has two wins and was eighth earlier this season. Gordon came into the Chase hot, but has cooled with finishes of 12th and 24th sandwiching a fourthplace run. You have to figure his No. 24 team will get it together, but the performance bears watching. The eight-week breakout run Keselowski enjoyed — which may be the story of the year in the sport — comes to an end. However, this team’s strength remains that it doesn’t know it shouldn’t be here. Clinging to the points lead thanks to his four regular season wins and top-12 finishes. Still, Harvick seems to be lacking some of the mojo that got him here. Maybe he should pick a fight with Kyle Busch. Running out of fuel in the Chase’s first race at Chicago may come back to haunt Kenseth, who had one of the best cars there. The result was a 21st, with fifth- and sixth-place runs since. Busch throws his hat back into the championship hunt with an impressive — and somewhat unexpected — win in Dover over Johnson, who he described as his “arch-nemesis.” A sixth at Dover helped his cause after subpar 22nd- and 11th-place showings. Leading laps is Kyle’s calling card, but he hasn’t done that since the onset of the Chase. There’s quite a gap between ninth and 10th on the list. Newman is sliding down the rankings thanks to 25th- and 23rd-place runs which have deep-sixed his Chase chances. That third-place run to open the Chase is proving to be the fuel-mileage fluke we believed it to be. If he expects to run better at Michael Waltrip Racing next season he needs to think again. Back to his seventh- to 12th-place ways after a couple of down weeks. Averaged an eighth-place finish in the three races prior to the Chase. Averaging a 26th-place finish in it. If a non-Chaser is to win a Chase race, Biffle may be that guy at Kansas. Marcos Ambrose, Kasey Kahne, Mark Martin, David Ragan, Martin Truex Jr.

2011 season continued at Dover. His 24th-place run was his 13th showing of 14th or worse in the last 15 races, dating back to mid-June at Michigan. Earnhardt recorded 11 top-12 finishes in the season’s first 14 races, averaging a 10th-place run and sat third in the point standings. Since, he’s averaged an 18.3-place finish while sinking to 10th in the standings and all but falling out of the running for a championship.

Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson entered Sunday’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway ranked ninth and 10th in NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup — in 28- and 29point holes. Many were already throwing dirt on Johnson’s bid for a sixth straight championship, while Busch was merely an afterthought in the title hunt. That all changed in the Chase’s third race. Busch got the jump on Johnson twice during late-race restarts — the first with 42 laps remaining and again with 35 to go — and never relinquished it, winning his second race of 2011 and the first of his career on Dover’s high banks. “My guys on pit road did a phenomenal job to be consistent, to be smooth, and to put us out there where we needed to be,” Busch said. “And I was able to wrestle the lead away from the 48 car (Johnson) and got to his high side and took the lead. And then with the final pit stop, Steve (Addington, crew chief) was thinking four (tires), I was thinking four, but we switched to two tires, and that was the perfect call. “We beat Johnson out of the pits, had the inside lane on the final restart and we just took it to him. I knew we needed to get that jump on the restart and we never looked back.” Johnson held on for second, while Carl Edwards overcame a mid-race pit-road violation and charged through the field to finish third. Kasey Kahne and Matt Kenseth rounded out the top 5. Tony Stewart, who won the first

MATT KENSETH Very quietly, Kenseth has placed himself solidly in contention for a title. Finishes of fifth and sixth in the last two races find his No. 17 team just 14 points out of the Chase lead. RYAN NEWMAN Newman’s ultra-consistent regular-season run has hit the skids in the Chase. After an eighth-place finish to begin the playoffs, Newman has slumped to 25th- and 23rdplace runs, placing him 41 points out of the lead. Compiled and written by Matt Taliaferro.

A team must find an optimal setting for the bump stops or the car will be negatively affected by being too low — which drags the splitter and affects handling — or too high — which gets air under the car and results in a lack of frontend downforce. Kansas is a simple track, which means there are probably more teams that can win there than at most places.”

Kurt Busch celebrates his win in the AAA 400 from Dover International Speedway in Victory Lane.

two races of the Chase and came into the Dover weekend as the points leader, struggled throughout the day and finished 25th. That, along with the top-3 runs by Busch, Johnson and Edwards, tightened the standings up. Kevin Harvick and Edwards now sit tied for first, although Harvick’s four wins trump Edwards’ one in the tiebreaker. Stewart and Busch are now tied for third, nine points out, while Johnson jumped five spots to fifth, only 13 points in arrears. “Are we out of it, still?” Johnson joked with the media afterwards. “Last week I was considered done.” Johnson’s 157 laps led were the most of any driver on the day, although Edwards seemed to have the best car early, leading 116 of the first 176 circuits. His pit-road speeding penalty dropped him two laps off the pace, though, and he spent the remainder of the day making up ground. “It’s really easy to say (that) if we would not have made that mistake


NASCAR Preseason Thunder, the annual three-day NASCAR Sprint Cup Series test session at Daytona International Speedway in advance of the season-opening 54th annual Daytona 500, will be held on Jan. 12-14. All NASCAR Preseason Thunder test sessions begin at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm. I NASCAR has announced the 2012 schedule for the Sprint Cup Series. Very few changes were expected, and the expectation held true. The Daytona 500 has been moved back one week, to Feb. 26, and the series’ first off-weekend, traditionally three weeks after Daytona, has been eliminated. Other changes include Talladega Superspeedway and Kansas Speedway swapping Chase dates. Talladega currently occupies the sixth race of the Chase in October, but will host the Chase’s fourth race moving forward. Talladega’s spring date has also been moved to May 6. This allows Dover to re-assume its traditional early-June date.

we would have won,” Edwards said of the penalty. “I definitely took myself out of position to fight for the win by doing that. So that’s something that is painful, and I’m going to think about it — I’m going to think about it all the way home.” The top nine drivers in the standings are all still alive for the title with seven races remaining. Jeff Gordon, in ninth, is only 19 points out of the lead, while Kyle Busch (eighth) in 15 back and Kenseth and Brad Keselowski are tied for sixth, just 14 out. Keselowski’s magical nine-race run — he had recorded nine straight top-12 finishes, including two wins — came to an end when his Penske Dodge threw a power steering belt. Until then, he had been a consistent top-10 car and had led two laps. Like Edwards, the malfunction dropped him two laps down and, while he was able to make it back onto the lead lap, he ran out of time and settled for a 20th-place finish.

Daytona’s summer event — the Coke Zero 400 — and Kentucky Speedway’s race will swap weekends, as well, as the July 4th holiday falls mid-week next year. Kentucky’s race will be June 30; Daytona will run on July 7. I The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and NASCAR jointly announced an extended agreement for Goodyear to continue as the exclusive tire used in NASCAR’s top three racing series for the next five years. The agreement, which extends through the 2017 season, renews Goodyear as the “Exclusive Tire Supplier” of NASCAR. Goodyear has held that role for NASCAR’s three touring series since 1997. I The Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony will take place in Las Vegas for the third stright year on Friday, Dec. 2 at the Wynn Las Vegas.

Classic Moments Kansas Speedway Kansas Speedway has been the site of many oddball finishes, and with its traditional date in the Chase, it’s often had championship ramifications. The 2006 Banquet 400 is no different. Jimmie Johnson has led 105 laps on the day and leads late when fuel mileage comes into play. Johnson surrenders the lead with four laps remaining to Tony Stewart, who runs out of gas on the backstretch of the final lap. However, with pit stops ongoing, Stewart has a nearly 20-second lead over Casey Mears and coasts the final half-lap to win with an empty fuel cell. Johnson’s title hopes appear to take a fatal hit when he is caught speeding on pit road while coming in for a splash of gas and two tires. His 14thplace finish finds him 165 points out of the Chase lead. He rebounds, though, averaging a third-place finish over the final six races to win his first Cup.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Kurt Busch sat on the pole and led 152 laps before fuel mileage bit him to the tune of a ninth-place finish. Pretty Solid Pick: If Greg Biffle has a win in him this season, this is where he’ll get it. Good Sleeper Pick: Dale Earnhardt Jr., anyone? Runs on Seven Cylinders: Not that he’d be on your squad anyway, but Joey Logano averages a 26.8-place finish here. Insider Tip: Brad Keselowski won the June race here on fuel mileage. It’ll likely come down to that again.

Harvest Prep banned from tournaments COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s sanctioning body for high school sports has banned Harvest Prep from its tournaments in football, girls basketball and boys basketball for the next two academic years for playing ineligible players. The Ohio High School Athletic Association also ruled that none of the school’s other sports teams could play in OHSAA postseason events during the 2011-12 academic year, and required an independent administrator be hired to oversee the school’s compliance with OHSAA rules. Harvest Prep must also forfeit tournament games in boys basketball from a year ago when it finished as the state runner-up along with three football games from last season. Last season, Harvest beat the Houston boys in the state semifinals, and the Fort Loramie girls in the state championship game.

to drop below .500, but evened their mark at 3-3 with a win over New Bremen last week. With rain coming down last week, the running game was big, and the Rockets rose to the occasion. Cole Furgason had 153 yards on 23 carries with a touchdown, and Gage Beasecker had 79 yards on just eight carries, just under 10 yards per carry. Dustin Noffsinger added 66 yards on eight carries and scored twice. Furgason is on pace to reach 1,000 yards. He now has 671 on 110 carries. The Indians still have designs of making it to the postseason in Division VI, but they have a difficult schedule down the stretch, starting with Friday’s game against the Rockets. After that comes Delphos St. John’s, St. Henry and Marion Local.

they went backwards from there. “Defensively, we held them in check pretty much,” Burgbacher said. “We didn’t get the shutout, but you have to look at the big picture. They were averaging 52 points a game and we held them to six. We’re going to have to play good, disciplined defense again this week. We’re not seeing an offense we haven’t seen.

Agent told Hillis not to play sick

CLEVELAND BROWNS running back Peyton Hillis runs with the ball before a Browns game. anyone wants to point a finger, point it at me.” In the aftermath of Hillis’ decision not to play, suspicions have been raised about the 25year-old’s motives and some have questioned if he sat out in protest. On Sunday, citing unidentified sources, ESPN reported that some players in Cleveland’s locker room wondered if Hillis’ contract situation was a factor in him deciding not to play. McGuire, like coach Pat Shurmur, was disturbed that if there were teammates who felt that

way, they should have had the “courage” to speak out publicly. McGuire said Hillis, who rushed for nearly 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first season with Cleveland, has been affected by contract talks with the club. “He’s human, of course it’s on his mind,” said McGuire, adding he has been in “constant contact” with the Browns. “Would it affect him being a pro? No. Does he feel underappreciated? Yes. He’s human. We all in life have a perceived value of our worth now, and he doesn’t take for granted what he’s earning now. “But we do believe that he’s deserving of something that mirrors his production of last year.” Hillis carried Cleveland’s offense in 2010 under former coach Eric Mangini. Acquired in a trade from Denver for quarterback Brady Quinn, Hillis didn’t take long to storm into the hearts of Browns fans with a bulldozing running style that matched this blue-collar football city’s hard-working identity. During the offseason, Hillis won a fan vote over Philadelphia quar-

terback Michael Vick to grace the cover of the Madden 12 video game. Last season, Hillis caught 61 passes and became the first player in team history to rush for more than 1,000 yards, make 50 catches and score 10 TDs in the same season. He’s in the final year of a rookie contract that will pay him $600,000 and Hillis wants to be rewarded for his breakout season. In the past month, the Browns have given contract extensions to several players they have identified as part of their future “core.” Pro Bowl offensive tackle Joe Thomas, tight end Evan Moore, defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin and linebacker Chris Gocong have all received new deals.

smile of confidence. “Of course, no question,” LaCava said. “I know he does. I’m not betting on it.” LaCava has been around Woods often over the last 15 years, starting with practice rounds that Woods played with Couples at the Masters and U.S. Open as an amateur. LaCava was prepared to work for Woods at the 2005 Presidents Cup when Williams went home to New Zealand for the birth of his son. Couples, however, made the U.S. team and Woods hired Billy Foster for the week. LaCava broke the news to Johnson after the Tour Championship, then came out to CordeValle for a tournament that was never on his schedule. For Woods, the Open is his first tournament in seven weeks, and his last PGA Tour appearance this year. There will be some adjustments, as always, but not that many. “He’s trying to envision how far I hit the golf ball and what I would like to hear for certain through numbers bunkers or carries,” Woods said. “So he kind of got all that. And he basically said, ‘OK, just let me know what you want on each hole.’ And that’s how we kind of did it. So he got a feel for what I liked, or would like to think or see, and he’s got a good understanding of it.” Woods is longer off the tee than Couples, shorter than Johnson. Then again, caddies go through these adjustments all the time. Jon Yarbrough, for example, went from caddying for Morgan Pressel on the LPGA Tour to working for Gary Woodland on the PGA Tour (with one stop in between).

CLEVELAND (AP) — Fearing Peyton Hillis was weakened from strep throat and could risk injury, his agent advised the Browns’ bruising back not to play on Sept. 25 against Miami. Hillis left Browns Stadium about two hours before kickoff, a decision that has led to speculation he was upset over ongoing negotiations with the club on a contract extension. However, agent Kennard McGuire told The Associated Press that Hillis was too sick to play, and that he could have jeopardized his career if he played at less than 100 percent. “I would give the same advice to him or any of my clients as if he were my son,” McGuire said in a phone interview. “The game is physical enough, and the way Peyton plays the game, he needs all the elements of his physical game. Him being sick, and the level of his sickness, is the equivalent of being injured. “Not only could he have hurt himself but he could have hurt his team. Nobody embodies Cleveland like Peyton Hillis. If

SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) — Tiger Woods offered Joe LaCava the job as his caddie, and it wasn’t a diffic u l t decision for him. “Why? LaCava Because he’s Tiger Woods,” LaCava said Wednesday, offering very little by way of elaboration. “Enough said. It’s a no-brainer, isn’t it? That’s my thought. It’s Tiger Woods.” LaCava is among the top caddies on the PGA Tour, having spent most of his 25 years with Fred Couples, a former Masters champion and No. 1 player in the world who was the biggest draw during the peak of his career. So big crowds will be nothing new for LaCava. He just never imagined working for three players this year, the last one Woods. Couples was playing less and urged LaCava to work for Dustin Johnson, regarded as the top young American talent. Johnson, who already has five wins and played in the final group at three majors, was runner-up at the British Open and won The Barclays. By then, however, Woods had fired Steve Williams and was looking for a replacement. LaCava told him he was interested. “When you say was it a hard decision, it was hard in the fact Dustin was great to me,” LaCava said after his first official day of work for Woods. “Was it hard to tell him I was leaving to go to work for Tiger? Yes. Was it hard to go to work for Tiger? No.” But the timing made some people question the move. Johnson already has proven to be a cash machine, with more than $12 million in earnings after four years on the tour, and headed for another top-10 finish on the money list. Woods is winless over the last two years, and has managed to play a full schedule only once in the last four years because of injuries or chaos in his personal life. LaCava was asked if he was betting that Woods still had great golf ahead of him. This brought a

erans hurt and the backfield virtually wiped out. They’ve been mostly healthy so far, and a few offseason changes have worked well. Nate Clements was signed after cornerback Johnathan Joseph left as a free agent. Maualuga was moved from outside to middle linebacker, his more accustomed spot. Linebackers Thomas Howard and Manny Lawson signed as free agents. Howard has given the defense more versatility with his ability to drop into pass coverage. During the win over Buffalo, he covered running back Fred Jackson. “I’ve never been around a finer athlete at linebacker than what he is,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “He is a good football player and he is learning to fit in the spots. It is fun to watch him.” The biggest improvement has been on the line, where the Bengals invested a lot of draft picks in recent years. Second-year end Carlos Dunlap and second-year tackle Geno Atkins have excelled in an eight-man rotation, a sign of the line’s depth. The Bengals have 10 sacks, tied for 12th in the league, but have gotten consistent pressure on quarterbacks, forcing them to get rid of the ball quickly.


CINCINNATI (AP) — For the first time in 28 years, the Cincinnati Bengals’ defense is No. 1. The Bengals are at the top of the league’s rankings this week after giving up fewer yards than anyone else in the first four games. They moved up after shutting down Buffalo’s highpowered offense in a 2320 win on Sunday, one they considered the best measure yet of how good they can be. “I think we showed we are a legit defense,” middle linebacker Rey Maualuga said. “Now let’s take it to a new level the rest of the way.” They haven’t been this legit since they still had the core of a defense that helped them reach their first Super Bowl during the 1981 season. The defense finished ranked No. 1 in 1983, when the offense struggled and the Bengals went 7-9. That defense held opponents to 20 or fewer points in 11 games. This one ranks fifth in points allowed after giving up 74 against Cleveland, Denver, San Francisco and Buffalo. That high ranking has a chance of staying. The Bengals (2-2) play their next three games against the three lowestranked offenses in the league — Jacksonville (No. 31), Indianapolis

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a national fundraising event for Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s Association provides research money and needed family education and support services for people with Alzheimer’s and their families.

What is Alzheimer’s? Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder named for German physician Alois Alzheimer, who first described it in 1906. Scientists have learned a great deal about Alzheimer’s disease in the century since Dr. Alzheimer first drew attention to it. Today we know that Alzheimer’s:

form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Other types of dementia include vascular dementia, mixed dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontotemporal dementia.

• Is a progressive and fatal brain disease. As many as 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s destroys brain cells, causing memory loss and problems with thinking and behavior severe enough to affect work, lifelong hobbies or social life. Alzheimer’s gets worse over time, and it is fatal. Today it is the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States. • Is the most common

• Has no current cure. But treatments for symptoms, combined with the right services and support, can make life better for the millions of Americans living with Alzheimer’s. There is an accelerating worldwide effort under way to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset, or prevent it from developing.

10 Signs of Alzheimer’s


One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s is memory loss, especially forgetting recently learned information. Others include forgetting important dates or events; asking for the same information over and over; relying on memory aids (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices) or family members for things they used to handle on their own. What’s a typical age-related change? Sometimes forgetting names or appointments, but remembering them later.

Memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging. It may be a symptom of Alzheimer’s, a fatal brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. Every individual may experience one or more of these signs in different degrees. If you notice any of them, please see a doctor. 3

Some people may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan or work with numbers. They may have trouble following a familiar recipe or keeping track of monthly bills. They may have difficulty concentrating and take much longer to do things than they did before. What’s a typical age-related change? Making occasional errors when balancing a checkbook.



Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships


New problems with words in speaking or writing


People with Alzheimer’s may have trouble following or joining a conversation. They may stop in the middle of a conversation and have no idea how to continue or they may repeat themselves. They may struggle with vocabulary, have problems finding the right word or call things by the wrong name (e.g., calling a “watch” a “hand-clock”). What’s a typical age-related change? Sometimes having trouble finding the right word.

Decreased or poor judgment


People with Alzheimer’s may experience changes in judgment or decisionmaking. For example, they may use poor judgment when dealing with money, giving large amounts to telemarketers. They may pay less attention to grooming or keeping themselves clean. What’s a typical age-related change? Making a bad decision once in a while.

With early detection, you can: Get the maximum benefit from avail-

able treatments – You can explore treatments that may provide some relief of symptoms and help you maintain a level of independence longer. You may also increase your chances of participating in clinical drug trials that help advance research. • Learn more about treatments. • Learn more about clinical studies.

Withdrawal from work or social activities


A person with Alzheimer’s may start to remove themselves from hobbies, social activities, work projects or sports. They may have trouble keeping up with a favorite sports team or remembering how to complete a favorite hobby. They may also avoid being social because of the changes they have experienced. What’s a typical age-related change? Sometimes feeling weary of work, family and social obligations.

Alzheimer’s Support Group Meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of the month at the Emmons Conference Room at Dorothy Love Retirement Community. For more information call LuAnn Presser at 497-6542.

Have more time to plan for the future – A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s allows you to take part in decisions about care, transportation, living options, financial and legal matters. You can also participate in building the right care team and social support network. Learn more about planning ahead. Help for you and your loved ones – Care and support services are available, making it easier for you and your family to live the best life possible with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Consult a doctor when you have concerns about memory loss, thinking skills and behavior changes in yourself or a loved one. For people with dementia and their families, an early diagnosis has many advantages: • time to make choices that maximize quality of life • lessened anxieties about unknown problems • a better chance of benefiting from treatment • more time to plan for the future It is also important for a physician to determine the cause of memory loss or other symptoms. Some dementia-like symptoms can be reversed if they are caused by treatable conditions, such as depression, drug interaction, thyroid problems, excess use of alcohol or certain vitamin deficiencies. In this section, you will learn how Alzheimer’s is diagnosed, the types of tests doctors use and how to live with Alzheimer’s after a diagnosis.

Changes in mood and personality

The mood and personalities of people with Alzheimer’s can change. They can become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful or anxious. They may be easily upset at home, at work, with friends or in places where they are out of their comfort zone. What’s a typical age-related change? Developing very specific ways of doing things and becoming irritable when a routine is disrupted.

Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps

A person with Alzheimer’s disease may put things in unusual places. They may lose things and be unable to go back over their steps to find them again. Sometimes, they may accuse others of stealing. This may occur more frequently over time. What’s a typical age-related change? Misplacing things from time to time, such as a pair of glasses or the remote control.

Why should you get checked? If you notice any of the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s in yourself or someone you know, don’t ignore them. Schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Confusion with time or place

People with Alzheimer’s can lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. They may have trouble understanding something if it is not happening immediately. Sometimes they may forget where they are or how they got there. What’s a typical age-related change? Getting confused about the day of the week but figuring it out later.

People with Alzheimer’s often find it hard to complete daily tasks. Sometimes, people may have trouble driving to a familiar location, managing a budget at work or remembering the rules of a favorite game. What’s a typical age-related change? Occasionally needing help to use the settings on a microwave or to record a television show.

For some people, having vision problems is a sign of Alzheimer’s. They may have difficulty reading, judging distance and determining color or contrast. In terms of perception, they may pass a mirror and think someone else is in the room. They may not realize they are the person in the mirror. What’s a typical age-related change? Vision changes related to cataracts.

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

Communication Best ways to interact with the person with dementia

Communication is: • Sending and receiving messages • How we relate to each other • An important part of our relationships • A way to express who we are • More than talking and listening • About attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language

Changes in communication Changes in the ability to communicate are unique to each person. A caregiver may recognize differences in the person with dementia such as: • Difficulty finding the right words • Using familiar words repeatedly • Inventing new words to describe familiar things • Easily losing train of thought • Difficulty organizing words logically • Reverting to speaking in a native language • Using curse words • Speaking less often • More often relying on gestures instead of speaking A number of physical conditions and medications can also affect a person’s ability to communicate. Consult your doctor when you notice major changes. The Alzheimer’s

Association recommends ways to communicate with the person with dementia so you might understand each other better.

Helping the person communicate Communicating with a person with dementia requires patience and understanding. Above all, you must be a good listener. To help the person communicate: Be patient and supportive Let the person know you’re listening and trying to understand what is being said. Show your interest Keep good eye contact. Show the person that you care about what is being said. Offer comfort and reassurance If he or she is having trouble communicating, let the person know that it’s OK. Encourage the person to continue to explain his or her thoughts. Give the person time Let the person think about and describe whatever he or she wants to. Be careful not to interrupt. Avoid criticizing or correcting Don’t tell the person what he or she is saying is incorrect. Instead, listen and try to find the meaning in what is being said. Repeat what was said, if it helps to clarify the thought. Avoid arguing If the person says something you don’t agree with, let it be. Arguing usually only makes things worse. Offer a guess If the person uses the wrong word or cannot find a word, try guessing the right one. If you understand what the person means, you may

not need to give the correct word. Be careful not to cause unnecessary frustration. Encourage unspoken communication If you don’t understand what is being said, ask the person to point or gesture. Limit distractions Find a place that’s quiet, so you won’t be interrupted. The surroundings should support the person’s ability to focus on his or her thoughts. Focus on the feelings, not the facts Sometimes the emotions being expressed are more important than what is being said. Look for the feelings behind the words. At times, tone of voice and other actions may provide clues.

Best ways for you to communicate As dementia progresses, communication can become more and more challenging. Sensitive, ongoing communication is important, no matter how difficult it may become or how confused the person may appear. While the person may not always respond, he or she still requires and benefits from continued communication. When communicating with a person with dementia, it’s especially important to choose your words carefully.

To best communicate: Identify yourself Approach the person from the front. Tell the person who you are. Call the person by name • This is not only courteous, it helps orient the person and gets his or her attention. • Use short, simple words and sentences • Don’t overwhelm the person with lengthy requests or stories. Speak in a concise manner. • Keep to the point. In some cases, slang words may be helpful. Talk slowly and clearly Be aware of speed and clarity when speaking. Give one-step directions Break down tasks and instructions into clear, simple steps. Give one step at a time. Ask one question at a time Don’t overwhelm or confuse the person with too many questions at once. Patiently wait for a response The person may need extra time to process your request. Give the person the time and encouragement he or she needs to respond. Repeat informa-

tion or questions If the person doesn’t respond, wait a moment. Then ask again. Ask the question in the same way, using the same words as before. Turn questions into answers Try providing the solution rather than the question. For example, say “The bathroom is right here,” instead of asking, “Do you need to use the bathroom?” Avoid confusing expressions If you ask the person to “Hop in!” – he or she may take that as literal instructions. Describe the action directly to prevent confusion. “Please come here. Your shower is ready.” Avoid vague words Instead of saying “Here it is!” – try saying, “Here is your hat.” key Emphasize words Stress the words in a sentence you most want to draw attention to, like “Here is your coffee.” Turn negatives into positives Instead of saying, “Don’t go there,” try saying, “Let’s go here.” Give visual cues To help demonstrate the task, point or touch the item you want the person to use. Or, begin the task for the person. Avoid quizzing Sometimes reminiscing may be healthy. But avoid asking, “Do you remember when ... ?” Stay away from saying things like, “You should know who that is.” Give simple explanations Avoid using logic and reason at great length. Give a complete response in a clear and concise way. Write things down Trying using simple written notes for reminders, if the person is able to understand them. A written response may also help when a spoken one seems too confusing.

Treat the person with dignity and respect Avoid talking down to the person or talking as if he or she isn’t there. Be aware of your tone of voice • Speak slowly and distinctly • Use a gentle and relaxed tone of voice – a lower pitch is more calming • Convey an easygoing, nondemanding manner of speaking • Be aware of your feelings and attitude – they are often communicated through your tone of voice, even when you don’t mean to Pay special attention to your body language • Always approach the person from the front sudden • Avoid movements • Keep good eye contact; if the person is seated or reclining, get down to that level • Be aware of your stance to avoid sending a bad message • Use positive, friendly facial expressions • Use unspoken communication like pointing, gesturing or touch




Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias can gradually diminish a person’s ability to communicate. Not only do people with dementia have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions, they also have more trouble understanding others. The ability to exchange our ideas, wishes and feelings is a basic need.

Planning ahead After a person has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, it is time to start planning for the future. Changes in the person can be gradual, and the point at which someone can no longer make a decision is difficult to pinpoint. Planning ahead can help reduce stress and better ensure that decisions meet the needs and desires of the person with Alzheimer’s. Why we resist planning ahead Many people find it difficult to start the conversation about the future for a variety of reasons: Fear • of a disease that we don’t understand • of what we do not want to face Embarrassment about: • memory loss caused by Alzheimer’s • other changes, such as misplacing objects, social withdrawal and loss of ability to organize or plan Privacy • Family finances or healthcare may be seen as a private matter. • Family members may not feel comfortable talking about money. • You may not have enough information about family finances. Denial • There may be problems within the family. • One family member may not believe or perceive there is a problem, so the conversation stops there. Suggestions for starting the conversation

Walk to raise funds for support, research, education

Remember When When I spill some food on my dress, or forget to tie my shoe Please be patient and perhaps reminisce About the hours I spent with you. Teaching you how to eat with care and to tie the laces on your shoe How to brush your teeth and comb your hair Those were precious hours I spent with you. And when I forget what I was about to say Just give me a minute--or two It probably wasn't important anyway I would much rather listen to you. If I tell the same story time after time And you know the ending before I'm through Please remember your first nursery rhyme When I read it a hundred times for you. When my legs are tired and it's hard to stand and I can't walk the steady pace that I would like to Please take me carefully--by my hand And guide me now-as I so often did for you.

...because of all the times she remembered you
