Local Republican officials are working to bring Mitt Romney to Shelby County, but they won’t say publicly if such a visit by the GOP presidential candidate will occur. “We are working on it,” Romney Chris Gibbs, Shelby County Republican Party chairman, said Friday afternoon. He said there’s nothing definite yet concerning a Romney visit. Rumors arose Friday about a possible Romney campaign stop here next week. “Every county would like to have him” or vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, Gibbs said. “Nothing’s been confirmed at this point.”

Cook-off semifinalists selected BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN The I-75 Newspapers comprising the Sidney Daily News, Troy Daily News and Piqua Daily Call have announced most of the semifinalists in the 2012 Harvest Holiday Cooking Contest. The local cooks will prepare their dishes and take them to be judged during a cook-off Saturday at the Crossroads in Hardin. Judges Kim Frederick, a cook at Dorothy Love Retirement Community, James

Patten, kitchen manager at the Bridge in Sidney, and James Wagner, head chef at Le Doux in Troy, have selected three semi-finalists in each of nine categories from among the 299 recipes submitted.

Two contestants had not confirmed their availability for the cook-off by press time and will be announced Wednesday. The other 25 cooks will compete as follows: Dessert category: Joyce Platfoot, of Wapakoneta, with Toffee Brownie Trifle and Marilyn Sherman, of Russia, with Marcy’s Incredible White Cake. Seafood category: Lori Enos, of Piqua,

with Sea Scallops with Tropical Fruit Salsa; Carol Leckey, of Sidney, with Baked Orange Roughy; and Kelly Schmitmeyer, of Anna, with Shrimp Lover Squares.

Jobs report is good news/bad news Report gives Obama boost Debate high overshadowed BY NEDRA PICKLER Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — President Barack Obama celebrated much-needed good economic news Friday as the unemployment rate dropped to its lowest level since he took office. “We are moving forward again,” he boasted. Republican rival Mitt Romney retorted that the president still hasn’t done enough to help millions of people who are out of work. The figures announced by the Labor Department — 114,000 new jobs last month to bring the unemployment rate to 7.8 percent — gave Obama fresh evidence on the

Open House

heels of his disappointing debate performance to argue that his economic policies are working. Romney countered that the country can’t afford four more years of the president’s leadership and argued that the rate is low in part because some people have quit looking for work. “These are tough times in this community,” Romney told a rally outside a construction equipment store after meeting with coal miners who have been laid off. “We’re going to bring back jobs and bring back America.” Obama responded that Romney wants to roll back policies that are repairing the See OBAMA/Page 4A

BY STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press ABINGDON, Va. (AP) — The cheering stopped on Mitt Romney’s campaign plane Friday morning. The day before, aides had whistled and clapped when the Denver control tower commended the Republican presidential nominee’s debate performance. It was a rare moment of exuberance for a campaign that had fallen behind President Barack Obama in a number of polls. The euphoria ended after the morning report that the nation’s unemployment rate had dropped to 7.8 percent, its lowest level in Obama’s presi-

dency. Romney and his team sat stone-faced and quiet on the flight to Virginia’s coal country, taking in the good news for the country that’s bad news for their political prospects. The former businessman has staked his candidacy on the notion that the economy needs a turnaround. So, even as Republicans elsewhere conceded progress, Romney described the positive report in negative terms. “This is not what a real recovery looks like,” he declared in a written statement less than an hour after the job growth numbers came out.

& Conference Center

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Roger C l a r e n c e McGee died peacefully on Sept. 22, 2012, at Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue, Wash., with his son, Brian, by his side. He was 88 years old. Roger was born on March 14, 1924, in Coshocton, to Clarence J. and Esther (Axcell) McGee. A Bronze Star recipient, he served in the Army during World War II and saw action during the Battle of the Bulge. He received a Bachelor of Science in education from Otterbein College, where he met his future wife, Esther Marie Scott. Roger’s career in Ohio schools began as a high school history teacher and all-around athletic coach. He received his master’s degree in school administration from the Ohio State University and advanced into school administration. He was hired as superintendent of schools in Sidney in 1964. The McGee family attended the Memorial United Methodist Church in Sidney, where Roger taught Sunday school, served on many committees, sang in the choir, and chaired the building committee when the church constructed its new facility. Roger was an active member of the Sidney Noon Kiwanis, including a term as president. He served on the boards of trustees of the Salvation Army and the Shelby County Monumental Building during their drive to restore the historic 19th century memorial to those who died in the Civil War.

FBI: Friendly fire likely in border shootings BY PETE YOST Associated Press PHOENIX (AP) — A preliminary investigation has found friendly fire likely was to blame in a shooting that killed one agent and federal wounded another along the Arizona-Mexico border, the FBI said Friday, shaking up the probe into an incident that reignited the political debate over border security. “There are strong preliminary indications that the death of United States Border Patrol Agent Nicholas J. Ivie and the injury to a second agent was the result of an accidental shooting incident involving only the agents,” FBI Special Agent in Charge James L. Turgal Jr. said in a statement. Turgal didn’t elaborate on the agency’s conclusions but said the FBI is using “all necessary in-

vestigative, forensic and analytical resources” as it investigates the Tuesday shooting about five miles north of the border near Bisbee. Ivie was killed after he and two other agents responded to an alarm triggered by a sensor aimed at detecting smugglers and others entering the U.S. illegally. One of the other agents was shot in the ankle and buttocks, but was released from the hospital after surgery. The third agent was uninjured. The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, which is assisting the FBI in the probe, said federal investigators used ballistic testing to determine the

shootings likely were the result of so-called friendly fire among the agents. Jeffrey D. Self, commander of Customs and Border Protection’s Joint Field Command-Arizona, said investigators were making progress and noted the initial findings that the shootings appeared to be accidental didn’t diminish the fact that Ivie “gave the ultimate sacrifice and died serving his country.” “The fact is, the work of the Border Patrol is dangerous,” Self said during a news conference Friday in Tucson. While federal authorities declined to offer details of the shooting, George McCubbin, president of the National Bor-

der Patrol Council, said the three agents split up as they investigated the sensor alarm, noting they all fired their weapons. “Coming in from different angles, that is more than likely how it ended up happening,” McCubbin told The Arizona Republic of the shootings. A Mexican law enforcement official said Thursday that federal police had arrested two men who may have been connected to the shootings. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said it was unclear if there was strong evidence linking the men to the case.

OBAMA economic damage. “Today’s news should give us some encouragement,” Obama told thousands gathered in the rain for an afternoon rally at Cleveland State University. “It shouldn’t be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points.” The unemployment

rate fell from 8.1 percent in August, matching its level in January 2009 when Obama became president. There is one more monthly unemployment report before Election Day, so Friday’s numbers could leave a lasting impact on Americans who are already casting ballots in states that allow early voting.

ROMNEY Abingdon equipment company, Romney dismissed the report as evidence that millions of unemployed Americans had simply given up. “The unemployment rate, as you know, this year has come down very, very slowly, but it’s come down nonetheless,” Romney told more than 3,000 supporters in this small western Virginia community. “The reason

it’s come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work.” Last month’s improvement is attributed to more people finding work, according to data released by the Labor Department. The unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent in September, dropping below 8 percent for the

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, Oct. 6, the 280th day of 2012. There are 86 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 6, 1927, the era of talking pictures arrived with the opening of “The Jazz Singer,” starring Al Jolson, a movie that featured both silent and sound-synchronized sequences. On this date: ■ In 1536, English theand scholar ologian William Tyndale, who was the first to translate the Bible into Early Modern English, was executed for heresy. ■ In 1683, 13 families from Krefeld, Germany, arrived in Philadelphia to begin Germantown, one of America’s oldest settlements. ■ In 1884, the Naval War College was established in Newport, R.I. ■ In 1928, Chiang Kaishek became president of China. ■ In 1939, as remaining military resistance in Poland crumbled, Adolf Hitler delivered a speech to the Reichstag blaming the Poles for the Nazi-Soviet invasion of their country. ■ In 1949, U.S.-born Iva Toguri D’Aquino, convicted of treason for being Japanese wartime broadcaster “Tokyo Rose,” was sentenced in San Francisco to 10 years in prison (she ended up serving more than six). ■ In 1958, the nuclear submarine USS Seawolf surfaced after spending 60 days submerged. ■ In 1973, war erupted in the Middle East as Egypt and Syria attacked Israel during the Yom Kippur holiday. ■ In 1976, in his second debate with Jimmy Carter, President Gerald R. Ford asserted there was “no Soviet domination of eastern Europe.” (Ford later conceded he’d misspoken.) ■ In 1979, Pope John Paul II, on a week-long U.S. tour, became the first pontiff to visit the White House, where he was received by President Jimmy Carter. ■ In 1981, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was shot to death by extremists while reviewing a military parade.


Who turned on the bat signal? PETOSKEY, Mich. (AP) —The search for a driver who fled an accident scene in northern Michigan over the weekend was apparently a job for a dog, not a bat. State troopers arrested 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams because they say he refused to leave them alone after he showed up Saturday night wearing a Batman outfit. “He wouldn't clear the scene, and we had a canine out there and he kept screwing up the scent,” State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno told the Petoskey News-Review. “He said he wanted to help us look for the driver. “We didn't want the dog to track Batman instead of the accident scene, and he was getting in the way of officers who had a job to do,” the sergeant said. Williams wasn’t carrying any dangerous weapons, but his costume and gear were confiscated, Gorno said. He was charged with resisting and obstructing police in an investigation, and he posted bond and was released from the county jail. He is due back in court Oct. 18.

Abu Hamza extradited to US BY JILL LAWLESS Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Radical preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other terror suspects who fought for years to avoid facing charges in the United States lost their grounds for appeal and were flown to the U.S. from Britain late Friday, officials said. The U.S. Embassy said it was pleased with the ruling earlier Friday by Britain’s High Court, and Scotland Yard said the five departed from an air force base in eastern England just before midnight on two jets bound for the U.S. Judges John Thomas and Duncan Ouseley rejected lastditch applications by al-Masri, Khaled al-Fawwaz, Babar Ahmad, Adel Abdul Bary and Syed Talha Ahsan, who had been battling extradition for between eight and 14 years. Thomas said there were no grounds for any further delay, noting that it was “in the interest of justice that those accused of very serious crimes, as each of these claimants is in these proceedings, are tried as quickly as possible as is consistent with the interests of justice.” “It follows that their extradi-

Radical preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other terror suspects including Ahsan can be extradited immediately to the U.S. to face charges there, Britain’s High Court ruled Friday. tion to the United States of America may proceed immediately,” the judge said. The five have sought to avoid extradition by raising concerns about human rights and the conditions they would face in a U.S. prison. Both British and European courts have ruled that they can be sent to the U.S. to face charges, but they sought last-minute injunctions from the High Court. The suspects face a variety

of charges stretching back several years. The best known of the defendants is al-Masri, an Egyptian-born former nightclub bouncer who turned London’s Finsbury Park Mosque into a training ground for radical Islamists during the 1990s. The mosque was once attended by Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui and “shoe bomber” Richard Reid. Al-Masri is wanted in the

U.S. on charges that include conspiring with Seattle men to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon and helping abduct 16 hostages, two of them American tourists, in Yemen in 1998. Ahmad and Ahsan faces charges in Connecticut relating to websites that allegedly sought to raise cash, recruit fighters and seek equipment for terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya. Bary and al-Fawwaz were indicted with others, including Osama bin Laden, for their alleged roles in the bombings of two U.S. embassies in east Africa in 1998. Al-Fawwaz faces more than 269 counts of murder. Al-Masri has been in a British jail since 2004 on separate charges of inciting racial hatred and encouraging followers to kill non-Muslims. Lawyers for the 54-year-old preacher, who has one eye and hooks in place of hands he claims to have lost fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan, argued in court that his deteriorating physical and mental health meant it would be “oppressive” to send him to a U.S. prison. They said he suffers from depression, chronic sleep deprivation, diabetes and other ailments.

Anatomy of a Vatican scandal How the butler did it BY NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press VATICAN CITY (AP) — He had the trust of Pope Benedict XVI and the cardinals, monsignors and priests who run the Roman Catholic Church. And because of his privileged position as papal butler, he had access to their deepest secrets: confidential letters, memos, financial reports. From under Benedict’s nose, Paolo Gabriele used the photocopier in the small office he shared with the two papal secretaries that adjoined the pope’s library, studio and chapel — and, he says, started copying them all. At first he kept the documents to himself. Then he found a journalist he trusted, and the intrigues and injustices he saw around him spread around the world in the Vatican security gravest breach of modern times. A three-judge Vatican tribunal on Saturday will decide whether Gabriele is guilty of aggravated theft, accused of stealing the pope’s private papers and leaking them to journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi, whose book “His Holiness: Pope Benedict XVI’s secret papers” became an immediate blockbuster when it was published in May. Gabriele has pleaded innocent, claiming he never took original documents, though he said he was guilty of “having betrayed the trust of the Holy Father, whom I love as a son would.” From court documents, trial testimony and the book itself, the anatomy of the scandal has taken shape: They describe how a 46-year-old father of three, said by court-ordered psychiatrists to be unstable, desperate for attention and with illusions of grandeur, came to consider himself inspired by the Holy Spirit to expose the Vatican’s dirty laundry for the sake of saving the church. They demonstrate how he instigated a Hollywood-

IN THIS May 23 file photo, Pope Benedict XVI, flanked by his private secretary Georg Gaenswein (top left) and his butler Paolo Gabiele arrives at St. Peter’s square at the Vatican for a general audience. Paolo Gabriele took the stand Tuesday in a Vatican courtroom to defend himself against a charge of aggravated theft. like plot to sneak the documents out of the Apostolic Palace under the cover of darkness to a waiting journalist outside the Vatican walls, who then exposed them on TV and in the most talked-about book of 2012. Gabriele himself told the court this week that he became increasingly “scandalized” when, as he would serve Benedict his lunch, the pope would ask questions about issues he should have been informed about. That suggested to Gabriele that the pope was being intentionally kept in the dark by his advisers. “I had a unique and privileged occasion to mature the conviction that it’s easy to manipulate someone with decision-making power,” Gabriele said of the pope. “With the help of others like Nuzzi, I thought I could help things be seen more clearly,” he told prosecutors in a July 21 interrogation. Gabriele told Nuzzi that he started copying documents sporadically soon after Benedict became pope in 2005, and then in earnest in 2010 and 2011, when the No. 2 Vatican

administrator began complaining about a smear campaign launched against him for having uncovered corruption and waste in running the Vatican City state. In his testimony, Gabriele almost boasted that he would copy the letters in broad daylight, during his 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. shift, while Monsignor Georg Gaenswein and the other papal secretary, Monsignor Alfred Xuereb, were at their desks facing his. He was free to sort through the mail that would come in daily to the office inboxes, even documentation that was on Gaenswein’s desk. “The photocopier was in the corner, on the opposite side of the office,” Gabriele told the court as his lawyer handed out a floor-plan of the shared space. “I did it while I was in the office, since I was free to move around and didn’t have any wicked aims. I did it calmly, even in the presence of others.” At the same time, Gabriele would also discuss Vatican problems with any number of trusted acquaintances he

would run into on his walk home from the palace. On foot, the walk should take three to four minutes, he said, but sometimes he didn’t get home until 4 p.m. because he would be stopped by so many highlyplaced people who wanted to speak to him. He named names, including cardinals and monsignors. But in his testimony this week, Gabriele insisted he had no accomplices, recanting statements to prosecutors that his plot had been “suggested” to him by others. Once home in the Vatican City apartment he shared with his wife and three children, Gabriele would file the papers away, “hidden” — police would later say — in between hundreds of thousands of pages of Internet research on Freemasonry, secret service units, Christianity, Buddhism and yoga. He filled a floor-toceiling armoire with the documentation in the study near his children’s’ PlayStation. A dining room cabinet held the rest. “‘See how much I like to read and study,’” Vatican police officer Stefano De Santis quoted Gabriele as telling the four officers who searched his home May 23, the day Gabriele was taken into police custody. In all, it took 82 moving boxes to cart out all the documents they found, though police said only about 1,000 pages were pertinent to the investigation. Police and Gaenswein have said that — contrary to the butler’s claims — they also contained original documents, obvious because of the seals, stamps and internal processing codes used in the Vatican. Some bore the pope’s own handwriting, including with the word “destroy” written at the top in German, police told the court. It was Gaenswein who found the “gotcha” documents that pointed him to the culprit: three letters reproduced in Nuzzi’s book that he said had never left his office.

Fired staffer doubted 9/11 memorial safety NEW YORK (AP) — A former manager at the Sept. 11 memorial was fired for raising health and security concerns at one of the most securityconscious places in the world, he said in a lawsuit Friday. Thomas Cancelliere maintained he was fired from his job as director of the National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum in retaliation for alerting his bosses to numerous problems. But a memorial spokesman called Cancelliere’s claims untrue and said his firing was

the result of bad performance on the job. He said Cancelliere was trying to leverage a large financial settlement. “Tom Cancelliere was terminated because of his documented failure to live up to the performance standards of our organization … We assure that the memorial is a safe, secure place,” spokesman Michael Frazier said. Cancelliere said he told his bosses of illness-causing bacteria in the memorial’s signature fountains, too-narrow

exit gates that could hinder an evacuation, and a lack of security checks at a public parking garage directly below the off-site room where the memorial’s millions of visitors are screened. “Unfortunately, Mr. Cancelliere’s concern for the safety of visitors was not shared by his supervisors,” who told him the issues weren’t his responsibility or were being addressed, even though they weren’t, his lawsuit said. Cancelliere, 67, was fired

last month. At the time, his bosses cited cost-cutting, the suit said. The suit was filed in a Manhattan state court, and seeks unspecified damages under the state whistleblower-protection law. The nonprofit memorial foundation spent about $28 million last year and is ramping up to lay out $60 million a year once an accompanying museum opens, including about $12 million a year on security.

Some things are better left unsaid

Madden the greatest gift not only in October, but all year long is, “For myself and the other pastors that I have spoken to, the best thing the church people can do is to attend church and to get involved in the mission program in church, and be committed to their spiritual journey.” Pastor David Clem of Spring Creek Christian Church shares her opinion, “The greatest gift any pastor can receive is to see members of their flock maturing in faith and actively engaged in doing the Lord’s work.” Like Pastors Madden and Clem, most clergy and their mates are compassionate educated men and women who care deeply about those they oversee. During October, let’s especially remember to show gratitude to these individuals who give so much of their lives to minister to others. Another way to do this is simply by praying, because the president of the Ministerial Association says that pastors would greatly appreciate this gift all year long. She explained, “Prayers lift us up and encourage us …just encouraging to know that people are praying for you as you are doing God’s work.” The writer is an award-winning journalist and inspirational speaker who lives in Sidney.

all promotional agreements with colleges, including the number of student debit card accounts opened during the time period. These are simple measures that can and should be taken to level the playing field and ensure that students can make wise financial decisions. It’s also important that students know how to protect themselves. Those that have questions or concerns about these financial products should visit the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website at www.consumerfinance.go v. The CFPB recommends that students understand that they can’t be required to use a specific bank or card, consider choosing an account before arriving on campus, and sign up for direct deposit if they already have a checking account. Students can also contact the CFPB’s Private Student Loan Ombudsman, which I fought to create, to learn more about using these products responsibly or to share their stories. We simply cannot afford to let financial companies overcharge the students trying to earn an education and contribute to our state. That’s why I will continue to fight to ensure that Ohio students see their financial aid dollars used to pay for tuition, room, and board – and do not go to hidden fees and charges.

Election letter deadline noted The deadline for letters to the editor relating to the Nov. 6 election is Oct. 26 at 5 p.m. Letters received after that date will not be published.

Midmark reports staff changes Miller makes VERSAILLES — Midmark Corp. has announced the retirement of Joe Rothstein, vice president and general manager, medical division at the end of 2012. “Joe has done a tremendous job of leading our medical division through successive growth during his years here at Midmark Corp.,” said President and CEO Dr. Anne Eiting Klamar. “He embodies our Midmark brand traits — genuine, expert, inspired and trusted — in all that he and his teams do. Joe has really done a great job of building not just a strong medical team but also improving already strong

Honda rolling complaints investigated DETROIT (AP) — U.S. safety regulators are investigating complaints that Honda Odyssey minivans and Pilot SUVs can roll away after drivers remove the ignition key. The probe by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration affects more than 577,000 older-model vehicles. MODELS: The 2003 and 2004 model years with automatic transmissions. PROBLEM: Failure of the mechanism that locks the key in the ignition. When that happens, drivers of the vans and SUVs are able to remove keys without shifting into park. Some have left the vehicles, and the vans or SUVs have rolled off unexpectedly. Owners have filed 43 complaints with NHTSA, including 16 that resulted in crashes. INJURIES: Two people reported injuries, according to NHTSA’s database. In the most serious case, the driver reported a broken leg after being run over by a 2003 Odyssey. The driver parked the van in a sloped driveway, and after leaving the Honda, it started to roll backward. The driver tripped while trying to stop the van. “I had an open fracture of my fibula (lower leg bone) and crush injuries on my shin area,” the driver reported. NHTSA does not identify drivers who file complaints. FIX: None yet. The safety agency will try to find out if the problem happens often enough to warrant a recall. Honda says it’s cooperating with NHTSA. It says drivers should always make sure their vehicles are in park and use the parking brake when stopped.



bonds with our distribution partners. He inspires his team and the company with his character, and I feel very lucky that he spent the last 10 years with us here at Midmark. He has made a positive difference to our customers and our organization.” As a result of Rothstein’s retirement, Mike Walker will succeed him as vice president and general manager, medical


and animal health divisions. Walker has been with Midmark since 1986, where he began his career as an industrial engineer in operations. Walker is a strong leader in the Midmark organization and will be a driving force in the medical division’s focus on effective and efficient patient care. As part of Walker’s promotion, he will retain his leadership role in developing the strategy for Midmark’s

animal health division. In addition, Matt Bourne will be promoted to senior director, animal health, assuming additional responsibilities in his new role. Bourne has been with Midmark since 1997, where he started as a sales representative and regional manager for the medical division. In 2010, he was promoted to director of sales, animal health, and has been instrumental in the development of Midmark’s fastest growing division. Bourne will lead daily business operations and sales within animal health. Although Walker will take responsibility for the medical division effective immediately, Rothstein will remain with Midmark through December 2012.

Velvet supports research UTICA — While October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Ohiobased Velvet Ice Cream has pledged its support of the cause throughout the year. Velvet Ice Cream will donate a portion of the annual sales of its Vanilla Lovers Trio to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.

Velvet’s donation of yearlong proceeds from Vanilla Lovers Trio will be presented to the Stefanie Spielman Fund later this fall. “The fight against breast cancer is intensely personal for our

family,” said Velvet Ice Cream President Luconda Dager. “Both our mother and our sister, Joanne, who works beside me here at Velvet, are breast cancer survivors, and as a fourthgeneration family- and woman-owned business, we are committed all throughout the year to supporting this important cause,” Dager said. Vanilla Lovers Trio can be found at Kroger, Chief, Community Market, Discount Drug Mart, Great Scott, Walmart, Geyer’s, Giant Eagle, The Anderson’s and Marketplace Stores. Millions of breast cancer fighters, survivors and those honoring someone they have lost

to breast cancer will paint the country pink to mark breast cancer awareness month in October. This is Velvet Ice Cream’s fifth year donating $5,000, making a total contribution of $25,000 after this year’s donation. The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J.

$100M scam suspect is Harvard law grad BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — A former fugitive suspected of running a $100 million cross-country scam collecting donations for Navy veterans has been identified as a Harvard-trained attorney wanted on unrelated fraud charges since 1987, authorities have reported. U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said the man who identified himself as Bobby Thompson and signed legal papers as “Mr. X” is really John Donald Cody, 65, whose true identity was uncovered through 1969 military fingerprints in a database separate from the national crime system. Earlier checks of the criminal fingerprint database turned up nothing on Thompson’s true identity. He is jailed awaiting trial on charges of defrauding donors in 41 states of up to $100 million through a bogus Florida-based charity. A four-count indictment filed in 1987 in Alexandria, Va., charged Cody with looting the estates of two women by making off with $99,000 from traveler checks purchased in Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca, Ariz. Elliott said at a courthouse news conference in Cleveland that the fingerprint match developed from tips he found last week doing Google searches for information about the suspect, including possible military or fraud backgrounds involving a missing person. Elliott said he found a wanted poster for a similar-looking pompadourwearing man who had disappeared after being accused of defrauding a legal client. The FBI searched military finger-

Lenhart recalls work on case BY KATHY LEESE

IN THIS May 8, file photo, John Donald Cody, aka Bobby Thompson, appears at a hearing in Cuyahoga County Court in Cleveland. U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said the man who identified himself as Bobby Thompson and signed legal papers as “Mr. X” is really John Donald Cody, 65, whose true identity was uncovered through 1969 military fingerprints that didn’t make it into the national crime system. print files and found Cody’s prints matched those taken from the suspect when he was arrested this year. suspect had The served as a captain in U.S. military intelligence, Elliott said. Elliott said military fingerprint records were only checked last week after Google searches for a possible military-related suspect turned up the Cody wanted poster. The FBI chased his prints from military service more than 40 years ago and they matched Thompson’s, Elliott said. “John Donald Cody was never arrested; he was indicted. When somebody is arrested, they come into our custody and they

are arraigned,” Elliott said. “There was no fingerprint from that time. The only prints we found were from 1969 that the FBI sent us.” The FBI said it checked the military print records when Elliott requested that. “When he reached out to us last week with this possibility then, yes, we assisted in identifying him. But up until that point, there was no reason to reach out to us,” FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson said. “This is definitely John Donald Cody,” Elliott said. “He’s a guy that thought, No. 1, he could never get caught, and No. 2, he would never be identified. And we were able to do both.”

The identification of John Donald Cody as a major s c a m artist w h o preyed on Ohio r e s i dents was of particular inLenhart terest to Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart, who pursued the fugitive when he worked in the office of former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray. Lenhart spearthe headed investigation as Assistant Attorney General for Law Enforcement . In that capacity he oversaw both criminal and civil investigations of the case. Lenhart said the case was the “largest financial crime that I’ve ever worked — $100 million.” He said the probe involved multiple jurisdictions, including state, federal Interpol investigators. “Look at this guy’s background,” Lenhart said.”Captain, U.S. Army Rangers, Intell(igence), served in other countries. His associates — high ranking politicians, military huge personnel, amounts of money that

we can’t find … there’s more chapters to this story. When you start to follow the money and knowing his past now with espionage, it’s like a spy novel.” But Lenhart has questions, recalling how Cody spent time alongside presidents, congressmen, senators and military officials, befriending them and giving them large donations. “If I’m Secret Service, how does a guy like this get in the White House next to a president? How does he hide in plain view? Who wasn’t doing their job?” Lenhart noted that in Ohio, a lot of politicians returned donations from Cody “right away, when they found out what was going on.” The sheriff does not believe Cody acted alone. “Even though he’s one of the slickest I’ve ever persons known of, he was not a lone wolf. There are other players out there with him.” Lenhart thinks associates and friends need to be looked at. He said now that they know exactly who Cody is, they can try to determine what he was collecting that money for and where he was funneling it. “I think he is probably a true patriot in his own mind. I think that’s why he was

collecting money and he was sending it to other folks. That’s my guess,” he said. One aspect of the case really disturbs Lenhart. “Look at all the veterans and their families and other people who have given $100 million to what they thought was going to help Navy veterans and other veterans in America. What a sad, sad thing.” “This thing hurt a lot of people now and it will hurt people in the future because of charitable donations. You’ve heard that cliche ‘charity begins at home?’ I think in this case, charity should start at home with the United Way, churches, stuff like that.” Lenhart said larger organizations such as the American Legion are also okay. But the Sheriff warns, “I’d really be careful and I would follow it up with this cliche — ‘when in doubt, don’t.’” He also recommends local residents to place themselves on “do not call” lists. Lenhart said he is glad he got to work on the case, noting “you get that funny feeling in your stomach something’s wrong. Ninety percent of the time, it’s accurate — something is wrong.”

Elliott also said the FBI wanted to question Cody about an espionage case but gave no details. There was no immediate comment from the FBI beyond congratulating authorities on his arrest. According to the marshal, Cody graduated from the University of Virginia in 1969 and Harvard Law School in

Clay wrote in the opinion. Economus had said in his ruling that he expected Husted to direct all county elections boards to maintain a specific, consistent schedule on those final three days.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A federal appeals court on Friday reinstated inperson early voting in the swing state of Ohio on the final three days before the Nov. 6 election, handing a victory to President Barack Obama’s campaign. But local boards of elections would have the discretion to decide whether to allow voters to cast an early ballot on the weekend and Monday before Election Day — just as they had the ability to do so in 2008. The ruling by the three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Court of Appeals in Cincinnati came in a case targeting a state law that ends early voting for most residents on the Friday evening

before a Tuesday election. The law makes an exception for military personnel and Ohio voters living overseas. Obama’s campaign and Democrats sued Ohio’s Secretary of State Jon Husted and Attorney General Mike DeWine, both Republicans, over the legality of the law. They argued that everyone should have a chance to vote on those days. Husted said his office was still reviewing the 6th Circuit’s decision, and that no action would be taken on Friday or this weekend. Ohio is among 34 states, plus the District of Columbia, where people can vote early without giving any reason. The Democrats who sued said a series of legislative changes by state

lawmakers had arbitrarily eliminated the opportunity for most Ohio residents to vote in person on the three final days before the election, while giving military or overseas voters the chance to do so. Attorneys for the state have said many laws already grant military personnel special voting accommodations, such as requirements for states to send them absentee ballots 45 days before the election. And they contend local boards also need those three days to prepare for the election. U.S. District Judge Peter Economus in Columbus had ruled that voters’ right to cast ballots in person on those three final days outweighs the state’s reasons for limiting that

Nurse Ratched actress can’t stand ‘Cukoo’s Nest’ SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Louise Fletcher says she can’t bear to watch “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest� because the Nurse Ratched character she won an Oscar for is so cruel. “I find it too painful,� said Fletcher, 78. “It comes with age. I can’t watch movies that are inhumane.� Fletcher is returning this weekend to the institution where the movie was made in 1975,

the Oregon State Hospital in Salem, the Statesman Journal reported. The hospital, long under fire for inadequate programs and crumbling facilities, has been rebuilt in recent years. Fletcher is attending the opening of its Museum of Mental Health. The movie is based on the novel by Oregon writer Ken Kesey. It centers on the struggle between the steely Nurse Ratched and Jack

Nicholson’s scheming character, Randall McMurphy, who eventually gets a lobotomy for leading a rebellion among the prisoners on his ward. “I was really shocked in those scenes where I was actually so cruel,� Fletcher said. In 1975, Dr. Dean Brooks, then the superintendent, opened the campus to the cast and crew. Fletcher said she was in the city 11 weeks,

‘The Price Is Right’ male model picked the open call in Los Angeles, where they had a chance to strut their stuff for the show’s producers and the female models the show is well known for.

said. He said he’s admired how she doted on her parents and cared for them as they aged, and how she dropped everything to spend time with a dying friend in London. Fletcher said better known actresses turned down the role, and it wasn’t until she saw the film for the first time with an audience, in Chicago, that she was convinced she pulled it off.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Boston man has won an online competition to become the first male model in “The Price Is Right� history. The long-running CBS game show said Friday that viewers had chosen Rob Wilson from among a trio of finalists who also included Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh. Wilson begins his weeklong stint alongside the ladies on Oct. 15. The contest was announced in August. Hundreds of he-man hopefuls showed up at

filming six days a week. He and Fletcher have stayed in touch — they talk by phone each July 22, their common birthday. Brooks recalls the actress as being nothing like the character: “I have found her to be angelic.� Fletcher, whose parents are deaf, took time out from filming to visit students at the Oregon School for the Deaf, he

Sidney falls 12-3 to Piqua For the second week in a row, Sidney proved how much they’ve improved. However, for the second week in a row, Sidney fell in a tough, hard fought game. Piqua was able to outlast the Jackets in the constant rain and cold by a score of 12-3. “I could see that this one really hurt the kids,� said coach Adam Doenges. “Our effort was great tonight once again. We just couldn’t string together enough offensive plays.� The Jackets took the opening kickoff and immediately went to work. Starting on their own 36, Sidney used two passes from Jordan Fox to Kaleb Martin and three big runs from Kyle Dembski to move to Piqua’s 20 yard line. The Jackets stalled on the 3 yard line, but they still got points on a 20 yard field goal by Eric Barnes. “We would have liked the touchdown there, but it was nice to get the points,� said Doenges. “We knew with the conditions the way they were, that points were probably going to be at a premium. Eric (Barnes) did a nice job of knocking it though.� With 6:36 left in the first quarter, Sidney led 3-0. After a Piqua punt, and a key penalty on the Indians, Sidney appeared poised to score again. However, the Jackets had an illegal blocking penalty that forced them to punt. Starting on the Yellow Jacket 47 yard line, Piqua went on a scoring drive that lasted 8 plays. The drive was capped by Ryan Hughes, who ran it in from five yards out to give Piqua a 6-3 lead.

PIQUA’S RYAN Hughes gets a hold of Sidney’s Kaleb Martin during Friday football game. After an interception, Piqua scored quickly again. This time Justice Young threw a 10 yard touchdown pass to Josh Holfinger to give the Indians a 12-3 lead. Sidney got a scare late in the first half, but a touchdown pass was called back because

of an offensive pass interference call. The halftime score remained 12-3. “We told our kids that this was just like the Belmont game at halftime,� said coach Doenges. “We just needed to execute plays – unfortunately we weren’t able to do that tonight.�

Piqua gave Sidney a few opportunities in the second half, but the Jackets were unable to capitalize. Darryl McNeal recovered a fumble on Sidney’s 3 yard line, but Sidney was forced to punt. After the punt, the Indians gave Sidney much better field position when

Austin Craun pounced on a Piqua fumble at the Indian 25 yard line. This time Sidney turned it over on downs, unable to take advantage of a golden opportunity. The Sidney defense, which played well the entire game, finally gave up a big play. Tate Honeycutt took off for 41 yards into Sidney territory down to the 25 yard line. The Sidney defense bowed its back however, and Noah Straman sliced through the line yet again, to turn Piqua over on downs. Sidney had the ball on their own 10 yard line with 5:03 remaining with one last chance to get their offense moving. “The run by Honeycutt was big because it put us in a situation where we had poor field position,� said Doenges. “We weren’t able to climb out of that hole the rest of the game.� Sidney was forced to punt after three plays, and the game was seemingly in hand for Piqua. However, Piqua fumbled once again – this time it was recovered by Brian Taborn. Once again, Sidney failed to convert on the turnover, as Luke Karn came up with an interception to give Piqua the ball back with 2:13 left in the game. Justice Young ran for two yards on fourth down and one to salt the game away for Piqua. “This is a rivalry and our kids played like they were in a rivalry,� said coach Doenges. “The next step is to make this a bigger rivalry by getting that Battered Helmet back.� Sidney will return to action next week when they host Butler.

Fort Loramie tops Muncie South 20-7

FORT LORAMIE’S Seth Guillozet runs the ball during Friday night’s game against Muncie Southside. Redskins constructed a 13-0 lead. The Redskins scored first in the second half on a 12-yard touchdown run by Seth Guillozet. Loramie scored their second touchdown of the game – early in the second half courtesy of a 60-yard dash by Guillozet. The sturdy effort turned in by the Skins kept the Rebels in check the entire first half.

In fact, Muncie didn’t put together a serious drive until midway through the third quarter. On that possession the Rebels stretched the drive across the field and capped it off with a touchdown. A lateral from sophomore quarterback to McKenzee Nash resulted in a breakaway touchdown. The TD trimmed the Redskin ad-

vantage to 13-7. But the combination of big defensive stops by the Loramie defense and a solid rushing attack by the offense put Muncie away. Loramie signal caller — Seth Guillozet was huge rattling off big play after big play. Redskin running back Delaunte Thornton put the game out of reach with a TD run late in the

fourth and Loramie went on for the 13 point victory. Fort Loramie, which has advanced to the post season each of the last three seasons, turns their attention to a pair of road match-ups. Loramie heads to both Riverside and Ridgemont over the next two weeks before finishing up the regular season by hosting Upper Scioto Valley.

FORT LORAMIE — Piling up computer points by the buckets — Fort Loramie pulled off a signature victory with a 20-7 victory over visiting Muncie Southside. “This is a huge win for us. We faced adversity but give the kids credit — it was a total team effort. The kids won the game tonight,� said Loramie coach Matt Burgbacher. Munice, came all the way from Indiana and they were on a roll. The Rebels came into the matchup against the Redskins having outscoring their opponents over the past two weeks by a count of 102-0. Additionally, Muncie South is a rather large school – equivalent to a Division II rating in the State of Ohio. So for Loramie who improves to 5-2 with the victory over the Rebels (5-2) the impact on their playoff picture is tremendous. The Redskin defense came out strong — forcing a big three and out on the first Rebel possession of the game. Dylan Eilerman recorded a big sack and the Redskin defense combined with some sloppy weather conditions forced a very poor Muncie kick which placed Loramie in excellent field position.

JOSH ROBINSON, of Anna, breaks the tackle from Jordon Halamert, of Coldwater, during the football game at Anna Friday night. Coldwater won the battle of defenses 7-0.

Coldwater wins battle of defense ANNA — Faced with the formidable test of the Coldwater Cavaliers — Anna turned in a scrappy hard nosed defensive effort. However, in the end it was Coldwater who came out a 7-0 winner on a rainy Friday night of high school football. Anna falls to Coldwater 7-0 Coldwater ran their record to 7-0 on the season and positioned themselves a step closer to their first outright MAC championship since 2008. Additionally, the Cavaliers notched a his-

toric milestone with their 500th victory. The Rockets who started the season with three consecutive wins have now dropped their fourth game in a row to fall to 3-4. The lone touchdown of the game came with just under two minutes to go in the first half. Josh Huber caught a 56-yard touchdown pass for the Cavs. The Rocket defense was solid most of the way – stopping numerous Cavalier drives and forcing a host of three-andouts. However, the

offense struggled to get much going for Anna – likely a combination of the weather and the strong Coldwater defense. Anna’s biggest drive of the game came in the first half but stalled at the Coldwater 29. Christian Williams had 67 yards rushing the ball for Anna in the first half. First downs were extremely tough to come by. With the Rocket defense playing strong — the Cavaliers were content to play a game of field position. The Cavs often were stopped offensively — but behind the foot of a strong punter — who booted punts of both 57 and 51 yards — Coldwater was able to keep the Rockets away from a serious scoring opportunity. Anna will look to rebound with a pair of league tests on the horizon. Both games are on the road as the Rockets travel to New Bremen next week and Marion Local the following week. The regular season is capped off with Anna playing host to Parkway.

ATLANTA (AP) — Just like last year, the Braves lost out on a spot in the NL division series to the St. Louis Cardinals. Only this time, Atlanta was knocked out with the help of what will be remembered as one of the most disputed infield fly calls in baseball history. Trailing by three runs, the Braves would have had the bases loaded with one out in the eighth inning. Instead they had runners on second and third with two outs, didn’t score again and lost 6-3 Friday night in baseball’s first, one-and-done, wild-card playoff game. Just like that, the focus shifted from Chipper Jones’ impending retirement and the end of Kris Medlen’s winning streak to a call that led to a 19-minute delay caused by enraged fans throwing debris and a protest by Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. “Ultimately I think that when we look back on this loss, we need to

look at ourselves in the mirror,” Jones said. “We put ourselves in that predicament, down 6-2. You know, that call right there is kind of a gray area. I don’t know. But I’m not willing to say that that particular call cost us the ballgame. Ultimately, three errors cost us the ballgame, mine probably being the biggest.” Jones leaves with just one World Series title, in 1995. “Today my heart is broken,” he said. “Not for me, my heart is broken for my teammates and my coaching staff, and all these fans that have been so great to us this year.” Attention was on Andrelton Simmons’ fly ball into shallow left field, which fell between shortstop Pete Kozma and left fielder Matt Holliday, sparking the furor. Just before the ball dropped, left field umpire Sam Holbrook raised his arm to signal an infield fly, meaning Simmons was out.

Francona interviews for Indians job CLEVELAND (AP) — A year away from managing has been enough for Terry Francona, who craves a chance to get back on the field and back inside a major league clubhouse. The Cleveland Indians just might put him there. The former Phillies and Red Sox manager, who has spent the past season working as a TV broadcaster, interviewed Friday to be the Indians’ next manager. Francona spent most of the day in meetings with Indians owner Paul Dolan, general manager Chris Antonetti and other members of Cleveland’s front office. It was a homecoming of sorts for Francona, who worked as an adviser for the Indians in 2001 and has remained close to An-

tonetti and team president Mark Shapiro. Francona’s father, Tito, played six seasons for the Indians from 1959-64. “The fact that my dad played here — it’s a good story,” Francona said. “It’s almost a family feeling. I don’t think you can take a job because of that but it still means a lot to me. But because of Chris and Mark and my relationship, I am excited to tackle or attempt to tackle every challenge that comes our way and do it together.” Francona’s interview came one day after the Indians met with Sandy Alomar Jr. about their managerial opening. Alomar began the season as the club’s bench coach but served as interim manager after Manny Acta was fired.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Minus his old signature toothpick, Dusty Cincinnati’s Baker leaned against the batting cage intently watching his players just as he did for a decade managing the Giants. Baker is back in the Bay Area for the playoffs, 10 years after he came so close to winning a World Series with San Francisco. “Well, I really don’t have much choice,” Baker said when asked if it’s a strange coincidence. “I feel comfortable here. I think my team likes coming here. This is a good town.” Sometimes Baker still feels the sting of that World Series near-miss, even now, two managerial stops removed from his first career gig as a skipper in the place he has long called home. On Saturday, he figures to be cheered by 40,000-plus fans at AT&T Park who still love him — “some of ‘em,” he quipped — when the NL Central champion Reds open their best-of-five division series against the Giants, who like Cincinnati clinched early and had plenty of time to get everything situated and lined up for the postseason. “I’ll be honest, I like this clinching early thing,” said Giants manager Bruce Bochy, whose 2010 World Series championship team clinched in Game 162. These days, the 63year-old Baker is conserving energy after a recent 11-game absence forced by a mini-stroke and irregular heartbeat. He just rejoined the Reds on Monday in St. Louis. Baker was away for the NL Central clincher, and Homer Bailey’s no-hitter at Pittsburgh last Friday night. He’s ready to go now — with no plans to change a thing about the way he operates during a game on the playoff stage. “I’m feeling like a grateful man,” Baker said from his spot at the cage on a sunny fall afternoon in the Giants’ waterfront ballpark. Cincinnati’s 19-game winner Johnny Cueto takes the ball in Game 1 on Saturday night. Matt Cain (16-5) pitches the opener for the Giants with plenty of postseason cred to fall back on: The three-time All-Star didn’t surrender an earned run during his team’s improbable title run two years ago. He went 2-0 in three starts and 21 1-3 innings, struck out 13 and walked seven. Cain won his final six regular-season decisions and struck out 193 batters in 219 1-3 innings this season. The righthander hasn’t lost in 10 starts since Aug. 6 at St. Louis. He earned himself a new $127.5 million, sixyear contract before the season as he’d so hoped, then backed that up by tossing the first perfect game in franchise history June 13 against the Houston Astros. “This group has been together since the beginning and we all had the thought that this is where we wanted to be in spring training,” Cain said.

OSU wants a rewind vs. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Huskers BY JIM NAVEAU Civitas Media COLUMBUS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be honest, even natives of Nebraska probably would admit movie star and Nebraska are not three words most people would put together. But a quick look at a list of famous Nebraskans leads to the discovery that Marlon Brando (two Academy Awards), Henry Fonda (one Academy Award) and Fred Astaire (one nomination for an Academy Award) all were born in Nebraska. Former Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes liked to show movies where the good guys triumphed over the bad guys to his team the night before a game, and if there was some righteous violence included, all the better. Action plus adrenaline equals aggressiveness. Chances are, even though they were bad guys vs. just as bad guys movies, Woody might have rolled out either The Godfather, with Brando, or The Godfather Part II, without Brando, to fire up the troops before a big game like Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Nebraska tonight at Ohio Stadium (8 p.m., ABC-TV). But if OSU was using any film for inspiration this week, it

probably was of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 34-27 loss to the Cornhuskers, not anything with Brando, Fonda or Astaire in it. Ohio State jumped out to a 27-6 lead early in the third quarter at Nebraska with quarterback Braxton Miller playing his best game of 2011 up to that point. The Buckeyes were still ahead 27-13 when Miller went out of the game with a sprained ankle with just under five minutes left in the third quarter. A year later, Ohio State almost certainly feels like it owes Nebraska one for that game. And a year later, Ohio State is nearly as dependent on one player â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Miller â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as it was that night in Lincoln. Ohio State (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) could match the six wins it had last season halfway through this season with a win tonight. Nebraska (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) could make a statement that it might be the best team in the Big Ten this season if it wins. OSU coach Urban Meyer has said his goal is for Ohio Stadium to be an inferno every game. If that is going to happen, Ohio State is going to have to keep its ignitor in chief, Miller, healthy. Nebraska has the weapons to put some

points on the scoreboard with quarterback Taylor Martinez and running backs Rex Burkhead and Ameer Abdullah. The Cornhuskersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense has been shaky at times, most notably when it allowed 653 yards in a 36-30 loss at UCLA the second week of the season. But that same defense held Wisconsin to 60 yards rushing in a come-from-behind 3027 win over the Badgers last Saturday night. And Carlos Hyde, OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only available experienced running back, is no Montee Ball. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why even more of the pressure is on Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulders this week, either to be sharp in the passing game, to run for more than 100 yards again, as he has twice this season, or to do both. So, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen tonight? Ohio State will find enough weak spots in Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense to score three touchdowns or more if Miller plays four quarters. The Buckeyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense will give up quite a few yards but not a lot And the of points. march toward a perfect season in a very imperfect Big Ten will continue for at least one more week. The prediction: Ohio State 24, Nebraska 21.

A day to remember hunting grouse BY BEN NEARY The Associated Press CARBON COUNTY, Wyo. (AP) — The 20gauge shotgun rode easily in my hands as I walked down a trail on the north slope of a tangled ravine that cradled a trickling stream. The light was crisp with the fleeting, brief perfection of fall. The aspen leaves shimmered their best yellow and orange against the pale blue Wyoming sky. The breeze carried the tang of spruce warming in the sun. The dog zigzagged tightly up and down the slope ahead of me. He had cut a pad badly earlier in the day but continued hunting hard without complaint. He was methodical, intent and good at his work. Suddenly, two blue grouse broke cover close in front of me. The sound of their beating wings throbbed in the air as they pumped hard to make it across the ravine and into the safety of the dark forest. The gun came up fast as I worked the slide to

bird ever had existed. My wife, Susie, our son Stanley and I combed the same rough ground repeatedly. We exhorted our dog to put his nose to work sniffing out the bird. No luck. Impatient to get on to more birds, my mind began to create a convenient fiction: maybe the grouse somehow had flown farther into the thick evergreen forest. Maybe the search was pointless, I told myself. It was certainly inconvenient. We had done our best. And fundamentally, I had given up hope of ever finding the bird. “Let’s go,” I said. “He’s not here.” Stanley refused. He said he had seen the bird fall and said we needed to continue to look for it. Of course, he was right. And while I was chagrined to be set straight by my 9-year-old son, I was proud of him for being disciplined and sticking to the truth. Soon I found a single, downy feather clinging to a bush. Then, searching beyond the feather in a line from the point where I had fired, I

found the bird. If anything is sweeter to a boy than contributing to a hunt, it’s got to be proving his old man wrong. I didn’t begrudge Stanley a few well-justified “I-told-you-sos” as we continued hunting down the ravine. I passed on another grouse that broke low, and flew straight down the trail. I could have hit him, but I couldn’t see whether anyone was walking up, hidden by brush. We came to the river, where the low, clear flows of autumn left the humps of the midstream boulders exposed, dry and chalky white. We cleaned the two grouse and washed their bodies in the water. I hung the birds’ guts in a dead tree to keep the dog from eating them. Soon they drew an impressive swarm of flies and yellow jackets. Stanley used my knife to dissect the birds’ gizzards and hearts, peering carefully into the crannies of the mysterious organs that so recently had kept the grouse alive.

Susie had carried her fly rod down into the river canyon. She rigged up and fished upstream while Stanley and I ate sandwiches of homemade bread, sausage, cheese and homegrown tomatoes. Then we looked for interesting rocks in the river. On the walk out, another grouse flushed in nearly the same spot as the one that had taken so long to find. I hit it with a good, fast shot. This time, Stanley found the bird promptly. Three birds, my daily limit. I was more than satisfied with the substantial weight of the game bag bumping on my hip. The setting sun stabbed its orange fire through the heavy, purple clouds building over the rounded mountains to the west as we made the steep hike out of the canyon. As we walked, Stanley asked if we ever had the feeling that we didn’t want a day to end — that as you lived it, you knew you were living one of the best days of your life.

Fish fingerling sale set Hunters prepare for fall turkey hunting season The Shelby Soil and Water Conservation District is currently holding the annual fish fingerling sale. The group will be taking orders until noon, Oct. 15. The fingerlings will be picked up at the District office, 822 Fair Road, Sidney, at 10:30 a.m., Oct. 16. Buyers are asked to bring a container filled with fresh water from your pond. A 5-gallon bucket with a lid will transport 100 fingerling fish. If you’re stocking a new pond for the first time, or are considering restocking an older pond, this is an ideal time of year as the water temperature drops. The water level is down in many ponds this fall, however this is still a good time to restock. To maintain a balanced population, species recommended by the OSU

Extension and the Ohio Division of Wildlife include: 100 largemouth bass, 500 blue gill or red sunfish (shellear cracker) and 100 channel catfish per surface acre of pond. If the size of your pond is unknown, we may be able to estimate the surface area from aerial photos for you. Depending upon the pond, yellow perch, black crappie, white amur (often called grass carp) and minnows may be added. For details about the sale and recommendations for your pond, call the office at 492-6520, ext. 3. An order form can be sent or emailed, picked up at the district office at 822 Fair Road or found on our web site at An order form is also available on facebook. Payment is needed with the order.

COLUMBUS – Fall wild turkey hunting opens in 48 Ohio counties on Oct. 13, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The season continues through Nov. 25. “The warm and dry spring resulted in better nest success and brood survival this year,” said ODNR Wildlife Biologist Mike Reynolds. “Although fall turkey hunting is not as popular as spring turkey hunting, more wild turkeys and a six-week season should provide ample opportunities for hunters to harvest a bird for a Thanksgiving feast.” Hunters harvested 1,375 wild turkeys during last year’s fall season. According to Reynolds, Ohio currently has a population of approximately 180,000 wild turkeys. An

estimated 15,000 people, not counting private landowners hunting on their own property, will enjoy Ohio’s fall wild turkey season. Only one turkey of either sex may be taken during the entire fall season, and a Fall Turkey Hunting Permit is required. Hours are one half hour before sunrise to sunset. Shotguns using shot, crossbows and longbows are permitted. Hunting turkeys over bait is prohibited, and turkeys must be checked by 11:30 p.m. on the day the bird is shot. All hunters must still report their harvest of turkeys, but they are no longer required to take their turkey to a check station for physical inspection. Hunters will have three options to complete the automated game check:

• Online at or • By telephone at 877-TAG-ITOH (877824-4864). This option is only available to those who are required to purchase a turkey permit to hunt turkeys. • At all license agent locations Game-check transactions will be available online and by telephone seven days a week and during holidays. Landowner hunters who are not required to purchase a fall turkey permit must use the Internet or any license agent to check their turkey. Hunters who tag their turkey as a landowner harvest cannot use the phone-in method. Game will be checked in by all authorized license sales agents. A list of these agents can be found at w/regulations/ px or by calling 800WILDLIFE. ODNR Division of Wildlife advises turkey hunters to wear hunter orange clothing when entering, leaving or moving through hunting areas in order to remain visible to others. Go to w/regulations/hunting_t urkey.aspx to view the counties that are open for hunting fall wild turkey. Additional details regarding fall wild turkey hunting can be found in Publication 85, Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations, or online at ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all.

Feds revise schedule for crafting Asian carp plan TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced a revised schedule Friday for developing a plan to prevent Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes, but members of Congress said it falls short of a deadline set by a recently enacted law. The corps’ regional office in Chicago said it would release a report in late 2013 with options for

blocking potential pathways between the lakes and the Mississippi River basin for the voracious carp and other invasive species that can disrupt ecosystems and cause huge economic losses. It will include extensive information about each alternative, such as engineering designs, cost estimates and assessments of how they would affect the environment, said Jack Drolet, pro-

starting at

$9.00/sq ft.


The corps began its study in 2009, as alarm grew that bighead and silver carp might reach the Great Lakes and outcompete native fish for food, endangering a $7 billion fishing industry. They have infested the Mississippi and many of its tributaries, including

the Illinois River, which flows toward Lake Michigan. An electric barrier in a Chicago-area shipping canal is designed to halt their advance. But scientists have detected their DNA beyond the barrier within a few miles of the lake.

Bazer is dean of arts and sciences emeritus at Owens Community College. He specializes in the history of the U.S. presidency. In addition to his teaching and administrative career, he has for many years spoken to audiences across Ohio.

Free Disposal of Mercury Thermometers and Old Ammunition


Sidney Daily News, Saturday, October 6, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Despite your enthusiasm, this is not a good time to defend your interests in shared property, insurance matters and inheritances. You might question what is truly yours. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Confusion in close partnerships is likely today, because you feel weak about standing up for what you want. It’s as if you’re not sure of your worth or your rights. Just wait this one out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Work might be exhausting today because you feel weaker than usual. Recognize this situation and get more rest. Don’t be too ambitious. Don’t take on more than you can handle. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Romance will be pretty rocky for some of you today, simply because you’re confused. One moment, you feel confident about the relationship; the next moment, you’re full of questions! (And so it goes.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might feel overwhelmed by opposition about what you want to achieve at home. Perhaps you’re not really sure what you want to achieve. Tread carefully. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Feelings of doubt, discouragement and even inadequacy might haunt you today. Let go of your desire to be perfect. Nobody is perfect. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be cautious about making important expenditures today, because you might be confused about what you really want. Similarly, don’t be too aggressive at work. Take it easy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might be surprised by how much you feel at loose ends today. Don’t worry if you feel hopeless or discouraged, because it’s actually an illusion. You’re OK. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Hidden enemies might be working against your best interests today, so do be careful. Expect sneaky maneuvers and deceitful actions from others. (Yikes!) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Today you won’t find it easy to assert yourself with authority figures. Even if you know you’re right, you still will feel self-doubt (always a bummer). AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Travel plans and anything to do with higher education might confuse you today. You’re not sure if you should go or stay. Do nothing. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Today is a poor time to get tough in negotiations about shared property, inheritances and insurance matters. You won’t be a good defender for your own best interests. YOU BORN TODAY You are an idealist who is true to your beliefs. Your sense of commitment and dedication help you to develop certain skills or techniques. Sometimes you’re a rebel because you seek to make the world a better place. Although tactful, you tell it like it is. Work hard to build or construct something in the coming year, because your rewards soon will follow. Birthdate of: John Mellencamp, singer; Yo-Yo Ma, cellist; Diane Ackerman, poet/naturalist.

Before this happened, I was working as a store clerk at a Walmart. I am on a leave of absence until I am released from therapy. — E.R. ANSWER: Symptoms of a stroke are sudden weakness, loss of vision, inability to speak or even overall confusion. It can be caused by a blockage of blood flow to part of the brain (thrombotic or embolic stroke), or by bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). They are less common than they used to be. Strokes can largely, but not completely, be prevented by managing major risk factors: high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Once a stroke occurs, the nerve cells die and

do not regenerate, but the brain can learn new pathways to take over the function of the brain cells that are gone. Generally, brain recovery is active for about six months after a stroke, and though people still can improve beyond that, for most people that’s as good as they will get. That’s why it is so important to treat a stroke early, especially in those with the risk factors above. Early treatment, ideally within an hour, can prevent irreversible brain tissue loss. Think of these stroke symptoms the way you would about chest pain as a symptom of a heart attack, and call 911. After the initial treatment, therapy (physical and/or occupational) can be remarkably helpful in recovering function, and I am happy that you are doing what you can now. Only time will tell how much more improvement you may see.

It just makes me angry. Could you please offer me some suggestions? I have read your column since I was a teen, and I value your opinion. Thanks. — HAD IT IN HARTFORD, CONN. DEAR HAD IT: Let
