It’s official: Romney to visit Sidney Wednesday BY RACHEL LLOYD After nearly a week of rumors and speculation by the public, county Republican officials have confirmed that presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be visiting Sidney on Wednesday. The event is to begin at 6 p.m. at the fairgrounds, with the gate opening at 4 p.m., according to Shelby County Republican Party Chairman Chris Gibbs. “We are very excited to have them coming and look forward to everyone coming out,” said Shelby County Commissioner Julie Ehemann Sunday. Gibbs added, “Of any political stripe. Everyone is welcome.” Gibbs said he expects nearly 1,000 people to attend, which is why they are encouraged to arrive early. Romney and one of his sons are expected to be accompanied by Sen. Rob Portman, Gibbs said. Local Republican candidates and officeholders will be in attendance, including state Sen. Keith Faber, state Rep. John Adams and state Rep. Jim Buchy. Romney, who will speak last, is expected to focus primarily on agriculture and jobs. “Shelby County’s largest industry is agriculture,” said Tony Bornhorst, candidate for Shelby County Commissioner. “Mitt Romney represents those values of our agricultural heritage here in Shelby County and will continue to represent those values down the road.” Gibbs said he had been working for a couple of months to get Romney or his running mate, Paul Ryan, to Shelby County for a campaign stop. “I pitched Shelby County to

The four came out Sunday to plan for Romney's arrival, which will be Wednesday. the campaign as leaders in both agriculture and industry in west-central Ohio,” Gibbs said. He also reminded them that Shelby County put George Bush over the top to win Ohio in 2000, which then led to him winning the election. He said it took all the relationships and contacts he had, as well as work by local GOP members, to pull this event together, and it still almost fell apart. “We’re very fortunate to have an organized party apparatus (in Shelby County),” Gibbs said. “We make a phone call and they can maneuver at a moment’s notice for events

Afghan war enters 12th year BY DEB RIECHMANN The Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Nobody wants a repeat of the bloody ethnic fighting that followed the Soviet exit from Afghanistan in the 1990s — least of all 32-year-old Wahidullah who was crippled by a bullet that pierced his spine during the civil war. Yet as the Afghan war began its 12th year on Sunday, fears loom that the country will again fracture along ethnic lines once international combat forces leave by the end of 2014. “It was a very bad situation,” said Wahidullah, who was a teenager when he was wounded in the 1992-1996 civil war. “All these streets around here were full of bullet shells, burned tanks and ve-

hicles,” he added, squinting into a setting sun that cast a golden glow on the bombed-out Darulaman Palace still standing in west Kabul not far from where he was wounded. “People could not find bread or water, but rockets were everywhere,” said Wahidullah, who now hobbles around on red-handled crutches. He goes by one name only, as do many Afghans. The dilapidated palace is a reminder of the horror of the civil war when rival factions — who had joined forces against Soviet fighters before they left in early 1989 — turned their guns on each other. Tens of thousands of civilians were killed. Fed up with the bloodletting, the Afghan people longed for someone — anyone — who would restore peace and

order. The Taliban did so. But once in power, they imposed harsh Islamic laws that repressed women and they publicly executed, stoned and lashed people for alleged crimes and sexual misconduct. The Taliban also gave sanctuary to al-Qaida in the run-up to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. When the Taliban refused to give up the al-Qaida leaders who orchestrated 9/11, the U.S. invaded on Oct. 7, 2001. Eleven years later, Afghanistan remains divided and ethnic tension still simmers. The Taliban, dominated by the ethnic Pashtun majority, have strongholds in the south. Ethnic minorities such as Tajiks, Hazaras and Uzbeks live preSee AFGHAN/Page 10A

TWO PRESIDENTIAL candidates have visited Sidney in the past three decades, Ronald Reagan in 1984 and George Bush in 2004. Each was a sitting president at the time, seeking re-election. Both were successful. Reagan (right photo) speaks from the back of a train during a whistle-stop tour that included a stop at the former Oak Avenue depot. Shown with him is former U.S. Rep. Michael Oxley, whose district included Shelby County. The other photo shows Bush shaking hands with a crowd of supporters outside The Spot in Sidney when his motorcade made a brief stop.

ROMNEY like this.” Sheriff John Lenhart was meeting with Secret Service personnel, while Gibbs was on the phone and meeting with campaign organizers last week, but even as recently as Saturday Shelby County was not a sure thing. “It was just yesterday (Saturday) I had to wrestle this event away from Springfield,” Gibbs said. “It took political horsepower and screaming at the top of my lungs into a cell phone to get it back. That was at 10 a.m. At noon, we had the event back.” Gibbs said the campaign people never bothered to say why Springfield might have won the race or why Sidney finally got the nod, but he noted, “We’d like to think we have more to offer to the campaign.” Gibbs pointed out that the Romney campaign is renting the fairgrounds for the event. “The public is not paying for this,” he said. Lenhart added that any cost to the public for security is also being minimized, with shifts being rearranged and compensatory time utilized as much as possible. Romney will be only the third major-party presidential candidate to visit Sidney in the last three decades. Ronald Reagan included Sidney on a whistle-stop train tour as he sought reelection in 1984. George W. Bush came through town and stopped downtown at The Spot restaurant during his 2004 reelection campaign. Both men won. The Sidney visit is part of Romney’s drive to win Ohio’s rural counties, a critical demographic in the bellwether state. Ohio’s urban areas tend to go to the Democrat candidate, but a strong showing in the rural counties can win a Republican the state’s electoral votes. And the adage says, “As Ohio goes, so goes the election.” The Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll showed Romney with 49 percent of voter support nationwide Sunday, while President Barack Obama is supported by 47 percent of the voters. The numbers reflect a “bounce” for Romney following the presidential debate last Wednesday. The major-

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Oct. 8, the 282nd day of 2012. There are 84 days left in the year. This is the Columbus Day observance in the United States, as well as Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 8, 1871, the Great Chicago Fire erupted; fires also broke out in Peshtigo, Wis., and in several communities in Michigan. On this date: ■ In 1869, the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce (puhrs), died in Concord, N.H. ■ In 1918, U.S. Army Cpl. Alvin C. York led an attack that killed 25 German soldiers and captured 132 others in the Argonne Forest in France. ■ In 1934, Bruno Hauptmann was indicted by a grand jury in New Jersey for murder in the death of the son of Charles A. Lindbergh. ■ In 1944, “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” starring Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, made its debut on CBS Radio. ■ In 1945, President Harry S. Truman announced that the secret of the atomic bomb would be shared only with Britain and Canada. ■ In 1956, Don Larsen pitched the only perfect game in a World Series to date as the New York Yankees beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5, 2-0. ■ In 1957, the Brooklyn Baseball Club announced it was accepting an offer to move the Dodgers from New York to Los Angeles. ■ In 1962, Chuck Hiller of the San Francisco Giants became the first National Leaguer to hit a World Series grand slam; the shot came in Game 4 against New York Yankees pitcher Marshall Bridges. (The final score of the game was Giants 7, Yankees 3.) ■ In 1967, former British Prime Minister Clement Attlee died in London at age 84. ■ In 1970, Soviet author Alexander Solzhenitsyn was named winner of the Nobel Prize for literature. ■ In 1982, all labor organizations in Poland, including Solidarity, were banned. ■ In 1992, former West German Chancellor Willy Brandt died in Unkel, Germany, at age 78.

OUT OF THE BLUE Fake cop demanded free fast food ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say a man flashed a fake gun and badge and demanded free fast food at a McDonald's drive-thru. Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say Joseph Pineda told employees Friday that he deserved free food, had just come from a sting and didn't have his wallet. Workers called the police. Pineda initially ignored commands to show his hands but eventually surrendered at gunpoint. Authorities said they found two fake police badges and a handgun in the center console of his car. The 33-year-old was charged with impersonating a police officer and improper exhibition of a firearm. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail. Online jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney.

Winning the day as means to winning the election BY NANCY BENAC Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — It can be something as small as positioning the candidate at just the right camera angle or as big as catching the opponent in a campaign-altering slip of the tongue. Every day, the ground troops of Team Obama and Team Romney set out in pursuit of a common goal: winning the day. Moment by moment, hour by hour, they scramble, maneuver and hustle to gain an inch here, a foot there on the opposition. Driving it all is the belief that by stringing together enough small, daily victories, they can help their candidate win the one day that truly matters — Nov. 6, Election Day. If they lose the day on Monday, they will work harder to win it on Tuesday. If they lose on Tuesday, there’s always Wednesday or Thursday. Until time runs out. Each day opens with a mental push of the reset button. When Obama underperformed in his first debate Wednesday night, his handlers

worked all the harder the next morning — in briefings, conference calls, television appearances, attack ads and more — to frame Romney’s debate narrative as dishonest. Republican rapid responders served up rejoinders in real time. Winning the day becomes a state of mind that motivates but also has the potential to distract. It’s what fires up the volunteers, the interns, the media monitors, the cable TV guests, the road warriors, the press wranglers, the local party officials and all the others who make up the infrastructure of a presidential campaign and propel it through long, wearying months and even years. “It helps you get up at 5 in the morning so that the doughnuts and coffee are ready when the volunteers come in at 6 or 7,” says Paul Begala, a Democratic consultant and adviser to a pro-Obama super political action committee who helped create the 24-hour war room for Bill Clinton’s winning presidential campaign in 1992. Campaign partisans scour every word from the opposition in search of openings to exploit. Most of that turns out to

Venezuela vote critical Israeli jets fly mock raids over south Lebanon test for divided nation CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Hugo Chavez’s crusade to transform Venezuela into a socialist state, which has bitterly divided the nation, was put to the stiffest electoral test of his nearly 14 years in power on Sunday in a closely fought presidential election. Both camps said turnout was high, with millions of Venezuelans casting ballots. Long lines formed at many polling centers, with queues of hundreds of voters snaking along sidewalks and around blocks in many parts of Caracas. Polling places were scheduled to begin closing at 6 p.m. local time, but stations remained open wherever voters were still waiting in line at the close. Officials began counting ballots at stations where voting finished, but

electoral officials gave no indication of when they might begin releasing partial returns. Chavez’s challenger, Henrique Capriles, united the opposition in a contest between two sides that distrust each other so deeply that some expressed concerns whether a close election result would be respected. “We will recognize the results, whatever they are,” Chavez told reporters after casting his vote in Caracas. Chavez was greeted at the polling center by American actor Danny Glover and Guatemalan Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchu. He said he was pleased to see a “massive turnout.” Capriles said after voting that the election had been free of violence.

BEIRUT (AP) — Israeli warplanes swooped low over Lebanese villages Sunday in a menacing show of force apparently aimed at the Hezbollah guerrilla group after a mysterious raid by an unmanned aircraft that was shot out of Israeli skies over the weekend. Israel was still investigating Saturday’s incident, but Hezbollah quickly emerged as the leading suspect because it has an arsenal of sophisticated Iranian weapons and a history of trying to deploy similar aircraft. The Israeli military said the drone approached Israel’s southern Mediterranean coast and flew deep into Israeli airspace before warplanes shot it down about 20 minutes later. Israeli news reports said the drone was not carrying explosives and appeared to be on a reconnaissance mission. Military officials would not say where the drone originated or who produced it, but they ruled out the Gaza Strip, which is ruled by Hamas, a group not known to possess drones. That left Hezbollah as the most likely culprit and suggested the drone may have flown with the blessing of Iran. Tensions are high between Israel and Iran over Tehran’s suspect nuclear program. “It is an Iranian drone that was launched by Hezbollah,” Israeli lawmaker Miri Regev, a former chief spokeswoman for the Israeli military, wrote on her Twitter feed. “Hezbollah and Iran continue to try to collect information in every possible way in order to harm Israel.” She did not offer any further evidence and was not immediately available for comment.

Friends baffled by killing of college student MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Classmates and friends are questioning why a police officer fatally shot a University of South Alabama freshman who was naked and had been banging on a window at police headquarters. Campus officials didn’t give any indication that Gil Collar, 18, of Wetumpka, had a weapon when he was shot. A university spokesman said he was fatally wounded about 1:30 a.m. Saturday after an officer heard a bang on a window and went outside to investigate. A statement issued by university spokesman Keith Ayers said Collar, who wrestled at Wetumpka High School before enrolling at South Alabama, assumed a “fighting stance” and chased an officer before being shot. The officer tried to retreat numerous times to defuse the situation before opening fire, the school said.

But sophomore Tyler Kendrick said campus authorities haven’t provided any satisfying answers about why Collar was killed. “Really, it just upsets me that there’s no other way to apprehend an unarmed student rather than shooting him. I don’t understand that,” Kendrick said. Joshua Frye said it seemed the officer could have used something other than a firearm to stop Collar. “What I feel is that a cop has more than a gun …,” he said. The officer was placed is on paid leave, and an autopsy will determine if drugs or alcohol were involved. Campus officials said the confrontation was recorded by security cameras. The video and other information has been turned over to the district attorney and the Mobile County Sheriff ’s Office,

which will review the shooting. Colgan Meanor went to high school with Collar and then enrolled at the same college. “He was a great, loving guy who always made people smile,” she said. “He’s not the kind of guy that people knew him and said he would do something like this.” Collar was the second person killed on the South Alabama campus since last year. A university freshman was charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of another teenager who was slain in an oncampus apartment in July 2011. The victim was a visitor to campus and was not enrolled, authorities said. Ayers said South Alabama, located near downtown Mobile, was still “a very safe campus” despite Collar’s death.

Lehman dedicates new flag pole A large crowd witnessed the dedication of the new flagpole near the athletic fields at Lehman Catholic High School Sept. 30. The ceremony took place between the girls soccer game against Troy Christian and the boys game against Yellow Springs. The flag pole was dedicated to the memory of Ann Frantz Vondenhuevel, a 1981 graduate of the school who passed away after a long battle with cancer. Vondenhuevel was the mother of three Lehman graduates, and the wife of Mark Vondenhuevel, the former assistant coach of the girls soccer team. On behalf of the Board of Limited Jurisdiction, the school’s administrative team, and the entire Lehman community, Vice Chairman Jeff Earhart welcomed the crowd to the dedication ceremony and introduced the school’s chaplain, the Rev. Dan Hess, who offered the invocation. Ann’s husband, Chair-

man Mark Vondenhuevel, spoke about Ann’s battle, the amount of time she spent at Lehman watching her own children play soccer and baseball, and the Lehman community’s support during Ann’s illness and after. Following his remarks, Eagle Scout Keaton Cole raised the American flag, assisted by Scout John Henry Frantz and Scout Master William Fuller. President Mike Barhorst said the flag had been received the previous day by Athletic Director Dick Roll from Ohio troops serving in Afghanistan, with a note thanking the school for their support of the troops. Barhorst said that it “flew in the face of the enemy” as part of Task Force Dragon. The flag was received from Ohio National Guard Major Brett Graham, serving with the 37th Infantry Combat Team. Hess then blessed the flag pole. The girls soccer team released blue and gold balloons.

That was the hardest part, taking his driving privileges away, coming to terms with that.” As the inevitable debilitation that comes with Alzheimer’s took over, Bob fell a lot and had trouble walking. Snipes was still employed as an inventory control clerk at the time at Nitto Denko, in Piqua. When she made the decision to move Bob to Fair Haven, she told him he was going to therapy. But he was more aware than she had realized. “I heard him say to a buddy, ‘I’m going to a nursing home,’” she said. Bob’s mother also had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. In both people, it came upon them slowly, so it was not a surprise. But Snipes acknowl-

When praising, include siblings HEADBAND HELP Dear Heloise: I often wear the type of headband that is stretchy and goes all the way around your head. I was having a problem with it constantly slipping off. I took some hair spray and spritzed my hair right where the headband was going to go on the top of my head. With the hair spray still wet, I put on my headband. The hair spray gives it a little extra stickiness that helps it stay put better. — Hope in Maryland

LOOK OUT FOR LINT Dear Heloise: My dad (a retired fireman) shared this hint with me recently. When cleaning the clothes dryer’s lint filter, simply use a 3-inch paintbrush to quickly and thoroughly get the filter clean as a whistle and eliminate the risk of fire caused by lint buildup. An additional perk is that your hands don’t have to touch the lint itself. Safe, neat and clean. — Johnny O. in New Jersey

for a good cause,” she said. Recently, the nursing home hosted a family day and baked goods auction, which raised $1,000 to support the walk. Snipes contributed a cake frosted in purple, the color for Alzheimer’s awareness, with a Walk to End Alzheimer’s logo on it. She hopes lots of people will join the walk “to raise money for a cure,” she added. She knows first-hand how difficult it is to watch a loved one in the throes of the disease. What’s the worst part of all? “At this point, it’s just seeing him,” she said, “remembering how he used to be.”

When teams and individuals step off for the 2012 Shelby County Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Rosalie Snipes, of Piqua, will be among them as a member of the team from Fair Haven Shelby County Home. Her husband, Bob, has been a resident of the facility’s Alzheimer’s unit for the past three years. “It’s a good time,” Snipes said of the event, which opens for registration at the Senior Center of Sidney and Shelby County, 304 S. West Ave., at 9 a.m. The two-mile walk begins at 10 a.m. and participants are invited to walk as much of the route as they want to. Following the walk, a complimentary lunch will be served at the senior center and door prizes will be awarded. “There are currently 4.5 million people living with Alzheimer’s disease,” said Sarah Beers, of Dayton, who co-chairs the event with Lu Ann Presser, of Sidney. “It’s so hard for the kids (of the sufferers) and members of the family. It’s devastating to watch someone’s memory disappear.” That’s what Snipes has done for the last 10 years. In the beginning, Bob would say, “Everybody forgets things.” “But you know if you live with somebody every day, (that something is radically wrong),” Snipes said. Bob was a salesman in the meat business for much of his career and ended his working life as a self-employed food broker. He was still in business when the disease began to affect him. “When he’d call a customer, I’d have to write down what he wanted to say to them,” Snipes

Senate race proves to be nasty, costly COLUMBUS (AP) — Job experience has surfaced as the defining issue of the hotly contested, super-expensive fight for Ohio’s Senate seat this fall. Incumbent Democratic Sherrod Brown faces Republican Josh Mandel in the race, which is one of the highestprofile contests in the country. Brown’s liberal voting record and surprise victory six years ago over incumbent Mike DeWine in a closely divided battleground state make him a prime target for Republicans seeking to gain Senate seats. In a fight infused with outside money, Brown has painted Mandel as ignoring his job as state treasurer in a continual quest for higher office. Mandel says Brown has been on his job too long and Washington needs new blood. The spat has played out in millions of dollars of television ads across the state. The Wesleyan Media Project found that $6 million was spent on more than 10,000 ads in the state Sept. 9-30 alone. Mandel’s youth and background made him a prime

IN THIS file photo taken May 5, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown speaks before a campaign rally for President Barack Obama at Ohio State University in Columbus contender to take on a popular incumbent. Besides being a U.S. Marine veteran who served two tours in Iraq, he’s proven a gifted fundraiser. Married into the well-heeled Ratner family of Cleveland, Mandel has raised $8.4 million to Brown’s $10.5 million, according to the most recent federal election filings. But more than half the money being spent on the race

is coming from outside groups. Wesleyan found more than 53 percent of the September spending came from non-campaign entities. On behalf of Mandel, they’ve included the GPS Crossroads organization affiliated with former Bush strategist Karl Rove and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. On behalf of Brown, the National Education Association and other unions are putting money into the race. At a September rally with AK Steel workers and other unions, Brown ripped the blitz of negative campaign ads aimed at him. “You can’t turn on your TV without seeing these nasty ads,” he said. The ads take on someone well-known to Ohio voters. Brown began his political career in 1974 as the youngest state representative in Ohio history, and went on to serve as secretary of state and congressman. Brown has campaigned alongside President Barack Obama, touting their shared support for the federal health care overhaul and the bailout of the auto industry so pivotal to the manufacturing state’s economy. Married to Pulitzer Prize-

winning journalist Connie Schultz, Brown had opened up a lead of 7 to 10 points in polls taken before the first presidential debate. Mandel was elected to his first statewide office in 2010 after stints as a student body president at Ohio State University, Cleveland-area city councilman and state legislator. He has shared polling with donors showing dedicated voters are in his corner. He has joined Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in appearances around the state and could benefit from a postdebate bump. Mandel touts his fiscal conservatism and support for Washington reforms such as salary restraint and term limits. “When you look in the dictionary under ‘career politician,’ you see a picture of Sherrod Brown,” said Mandel, who is 35. Brown is 59. Mandel has faced a steady stream of criticism: for hiring friends and political operatives into his state office, for being a no-show to his official state duties, and for accepting donations later targeted in an FBI probe. ___ Associated Press writer

Report: Debt agencies wrongly ruin credit reports COLUMBUS (AP) — Debt collectors have ruined the credit reputations of thousands of people over debts they never owed or already paid according to consumer complaints filed with federal and state agencies, an Ohio newspaper reported Sunday Some debt collectors have forced consumers into paying debts that are erroneous or fraudulent, The Columbus Dispatch reported as part of an ongoing investigation into the nation’s credit-reporting system and the lack of federal regulation over it. The newspaper looked at more than 22,500 complaints filed with the Federal Trade Commission since January 2009. They were filed by people who said they had a problem one of the nation’s three largest credit-reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. About 6 percent said their complaint involved a debt in collection, the newspaper said. Nearly 10 percent of the complaints — 11,400 since 2009 —

made with the Ohio Attorney General’s office over debt collectors involved a collection account reported to a credit bureau. Government regulators, watchdogs and consumer advocates have called for changes to the federal law that governs debt collection and allows debt collected almost unregulated access to credit reports. “They don’t abide by any rules,” said Richard Rubin, a consumer-law attorney in New Mexico and an expert on the federal law. “Their job is to squeeze money out of people, and their business model is to go as close to the edge as they can. And they do it with the complicity of the credit bureaus.” The FTC and the Government Accountability Office want Congress to create more safeguards, including requiring debt collectors to have proof of all debts. When debt-collection companies take over delinquent debts, the original creditor gives them consumers’ names,

contact information and how much they owe. Sometimes the information is wrong, but debt collectors still report consumers to the credit bureaus, the newspaper said. Debt collectors maintain that such instances are rare and the fault of the original creditors. “We are completely reliable on the validity of the information we are provided,” said Schiffman, Mark spokesman for the industry trade group, ACA International, based in Minneapolis. “We’ve advocated that creditors hold onto original information longer.” The debt-collection industry says less than 0.002 percent of the 4 million consumers it contacts each year file formal complaints, according to the industry. “Our members take a great deal of time talking to consumers. They are serving as counselors,” Schiffman said. The Consumer Data Industry Association, which represents the three big national credit-reporting agen-

cies, said a 2011 study funded by the industry found that their information is more than 99 percent accurate. “The statements being made about collection items in a credit report don’t ring true,” said Norm Magnuson, the group’s vice president of public affairs. FTC officials told Congress two years ago that the number of complaints against debt colmay be lectors understated. Complaints about debt collectors to the agency have increased 73 percent since 2008. Linda Reed, of the Cleveland suburb of Garfield Heights, said a debt collector damaged her credit history with a $65 collection account for Barbie and Sesame Street DVDs that she never bought. “I told them, ‘My children are 20, 28 and 24.’ But it is still showing up on my credit report,” she said. ___ Information from: The Columbus Dispatch, m

Governor’s decision on Ohio Turnpike may come soon COLUMBUS (AP) — A proposal on whether to lease the Ohio Turnpike or get more money out of the toll road some other way is coming soon, Gov. John Kasich said. The governor said last week that he’s looking at options that could bring the state more than $1 billion, and a formal proposal could be announced within the next month. The Columbus Dispatch reported that it’s believed that the governor’s administration is studying whether to lease the turnpike over a period of years or issuing bonds against it. “The bottom line is there may be some real money lying out there if we do this thing the right way,” Kasich said on Friday. He’s been pushing the idea of using the turnpike that crosses northern Ohio to bring several billion dollars to the state for new road and bridge projects. Critics, including many elected officials in northern Ohio, say leasing the road could bring higher tolls for drivers and less maintenance on the road. Kasich tried to ease some of those worries although he said putting a limit on future toll increases would reduce how much money the state could get from allowing a private company to operate the toll road. He said the state could get enough money to take care of a lot of infrastructure needs for about a decade. “We’re going to treat northeastern and northern Ohio and northwestern Ohio, we’re going to treat everybody fairly, and they’ll get a big chunk of the money,” he said Friday. The state has hired consultants to study the turnpike’s future. Options include leasing the turnpike to a private operator, maintaining public ownership and operation, or using a mix of public ownership with part private operation. The turnpike now operates entirely on its own revenue and is funded through tolls and the sale of gas and food at rest stops. It had $11 million in profits last year. Drivers paid $232 million in tolls last year. ___ Information from: The Columbus Dispatch,

Nitrates

can accumulate in about any cover crop, including oat, cereal rye, annual ryegrass, and brassica species. If there is potential for N carryover in fields where you planted cover crops, or if N fertilizer was applied to the cover crop forage, it is advisable to test the forage for nitrate content before you harvest or graze the forage this fall. Recent rains could have promoted a flush of nitrates to be taken up by the plant. To make matters worse, the previous cold snap might shut down plant growth (depending on the cover crop species) preventing further accumulation of yield, so high nitrate concentrations will not be diluted out in the plant. Consider the N carryover situation in your fields and test your cover crop forage accordingly. Cornstalk residue is a tremendous resource for fall and winter grazing; however, this year care needs to be taken in grazing drought stressed cornstalks due to the potential of high nitrates in the feed. Cattle prefer grazing the leaves and husk which tend to be lower in nitrates. Because drought-stressed corn is smaller and stunted, it is more likely that cattle will eat lower into the stalk where nitrate levels may be high. Nitrates are usually concentrated in the bottom third of the stalk in the corn plant. Make sure the cows are full when you turn them into droughtstressed cornstalks. Resist the temptation to leave cattle on corn stalks after they have eaten most of the leaves and husks to avoid forcing the cattle to consume more of the potentially high-nitrate stalks. Yes, we need to use as much feed as we can, but let’s not make them sick …

LOCAL NEWS AFGHAN From Page 1 dominantly in central northern and Afghanistan. The fear is that when international forces leave, minority groups will take up arms to prevent another Taliban takeover and that members of the Afghan security forces could walk off the government force and fight with their ethnic leaders. Anxiety and confusion about what will happen after the foreign forces leave permeates every aspect of society. Political debate about an Afghanistan post-2014 is getting more vocal. Some political leaders threaten to take up arms while others preach progress, development and peace. Young Afghans with money and connections are trying to flee the country before 2014. There also is mounting uncertainty about the upcoming transfer of power. At the same time that foreign troops are scheduled to complete their withdrawal in 2014, Afghans will go to the polls to elect a successor to President Hamid Karzai, who is barred by the constitution from running for a third term. The Afghan people already view their government as weak and corrupt and those doubtful of a peaceful future say that if the upcoming presidential election is rigged and yields an illegitimate leader, civil war could erupt between ethnic groups backed by neighboring countries trying to influence Afghanistan’s future. “Unfortunately in Afghanistan, we do not have any political unity,” said Gen. Sayed Hussain Anwari, a former governor of Kabul and Herat provinces who led fighters during the civil war. Speaking in emotional, rapid-fire sentences at his home in Kabul, Anwari says that the Taliban have a right to participate in the political process. “But if the scenario changes and they come to power by force, there will be groups that won’t go with the Taliban and the fighting will continue,” he said. Ghairat Baheer offers an even gloomier prediction. Baheer is a representative and son-in-law of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a key civil war leader in the 1990s whose fighters attack foreign troops today. He warns that the current Afghan government will collapse with the international troop withdrawal and says civil war is likely without a peace agreement. “The realties are that the government is not sustainable,” he said in a telephone interview. “Anti-Americanism and anti-western sentiment is increasing daily in Afghanistan and the resistance is spreading day-by-day across the country.” Fahim Dashti was with Ahmad Shah Massoud, the charismatic Tajik leader who commanded the Northern Alliance of minority groups, when he was fatally wounded by two terrorists posing as journalists two days before the Sept. 11 attacks. Dashti’s face and hands were burned when one of the journalists blew himself up as the interview began. Even now, Dashti’s hands are not strong enough to twist the cap off a bottle of water.

Sheriff, chief meet with Secret Service Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart spent Friday afternoon with Sidney Police Chief Kevin Gessler and members of the Secret Service discussing the “hypothetical” situation of a Mitt Romney visit to Sidney. And now that the visit is confirmed, there is more work to be done. “It’s been multiple phone calls and meeting for multiple hours,” Lenhart said. Planning has included the layout of security, controlling ingress and egress of the crowd, communications, logistics and more. “There’s a delicate balance between what the campaign wants and what Secret Service will allow,” Lenhart said. “It’s

an amazing process to protect the candidate.” Lenhart was sheriff and in charge of the local side of security during President Reagan’s 1984 visit as well. Noting the experience of the city as well as his own experience, Lenhart quipped, “The only one where I didn’t learn anything was (President) Truman’s (visit) in 1948.” Lenhart said he appeared in a newspaper photo sitting atop his dad’s shoulders for that presidential visit. Lenhart said more phone calls and meetings will occur before the upcoming event to pin down details, but law enforcement officials from throughout the county will be providing mutual aid.

is stubborn. She actually thinks her daughter will eventually end her odd eating behavior. —Gina, Rochester, N.Y. GINA: Anorexia nervosa is a very serious eating disorder that affects one young girl out of 100. Without intervention, these young adults can literally starve themselves to death. The Department of Health and Human Services estimates that 1,000 young women die each year from anorexia nervosa in the United States. The desire to look slim can become a deadly addiction. It’s imperative that your aunt gets her daughter professional treatment that can help her get over her eating disorder. Rarely can a victim of anorexia overcome this very serious eating disorder without professional help. Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

Further, because the Food and Drug Administration does not regulate supplements, you have only the manufacturer’s assurance that the product you buy contains the product you want. Many manufacturers have excellent practices; however, some do not. I also agree that losing a few pounds really will help reduce your risk of diabetes. In the definitive trial, diabetes was prevented more successfully with a healthy diet and regular exercise than with proven, regulated diabetes medications. Put your efforts into increasing exercise and improving your diet, not in the supplement.

It’s harder, but you will feel better, and it’s much better to prevent diabetes than to treat it. Finally, you are absolutely right that you should share information on all the medications and supplements you are taking with all of your providers. While I didn’t find any evidence of harm from this product, that’s not always the case, and some supplements have bad interactions with prescribed medications. Drs.

OSU offense shiny and new But it has a hard edge, too BY JIM NAVEAU Civitas Media COLUMBUS — Urban Meyer never said he re-invented the wheel. He just wants to make it roll faster than anyone else. Ohio State’s 63-38 win over Nebraska on Saturday night definitely showed there is a new way of doing business on offense in Columbus. Sixty-three points in a Big Ten game? A fake punt from your own 25-yard line when you’re behind? A player coming off the bench to score on a long touchdown run on his first carry of the game? Yes, that’s different. But Saturday night’s win also emphasized there is still quite a bit of the traditional in OSU’s offense. The Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) are, in Meyer’s words, a “pound you” team. They rushed for 371 yards and passed for only 127 yards on their way to those 63 points against the Cornhuskers. Running back Carlos Hyde rushed 28 times for 140 yards. Quarterback Braxton Miller ran the ball 16 times for 186 yards and put the ball in the air only three times in the second half and just 14

times overall. “We are kind of a pound you offense right now. I don’t mind that. But I have not had a lot of those,” Meyer said. Ohio State was the one getting pounded early when it fell behind Nebraska 17-7. But OSU’s offensive line played a big role in turning the game around, according to Meyer. “They came out and hit us in the mouth. We had to get going. Our offensive line eventually took over the game. “They’re the ones who really developed. I mean really developed,” he said about the offensive line. “We don’t have a lot of depth but Coach Warinner (offensive line coach Ed Warinner) and those guys have something going now.” Tight end Jeff Heuerman caught his first touchdown pass at OSU and also had a 35-yard reception, the longest of the game for the Buckeyes. “This offense is awesome,” Heuerman said. “It’s hardnosed football but at the same time you’ve got guys spread out who are going to make plays. Did I think we were going to score 63 points tonight? No, I don’t think so. But we know how hard we work and when we put it all

together it’s going to be a big game.” How big? Evidently, no dream is too big. Asked what’s next for Ohio State’s offense after scoring 63 points, Heuerman smiled and said, “I don’t know. Score a hundred points, hopefully?” Next up for Ohio State will be a trip to Indiana Saturday for another night game. The Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) have not won a Big Ten game yet for coach Kevin Wilson, now in his second season. They came close on Saturday, losing to Michigan State 31-27 after jumping out to a 17-0 lead to start the game. IU still led by 10 points with less than eight minutes to play but couldn’t hold onto the lead. “In the second half, we just got outplayed,” Wilson said in his postgame press conference. Quarterback Cameron Coffman threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns against Michigan State. For the season, he has completed 67 percent of his passes and has thrown six touchdown passes and only one interception. Shane Wynn, who caught 12 passes against Michigan State, leads the Hoosiers with 28 receptions. Cody Latimer has 20 catches.

CINCINNATI BENGALS quarterback Andy Dalton (14) is tackled by Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith (24) after a short gain in the second half of an NFL football game on Sunday in Cincinnati. Miami won 17-13.

2 INTs help Dolphins beat Bengals 17-13 CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton didn’t have much time with the pass rush closing in. He saw Andrew Hawkins down the middle and tried to get the ball to him. It sailed. It was picked off. And for the first time, the Bengals left the field feeling they’d let one get away. Miami’s Reshad Jones picked off Dalton’s pass at midfield with 1:22 left on Sunday, preserving a 17-13 victory that ended back-to-back weeks of heartbreak for Dolphins. Miami (2-3) had led at halftime before losing to the New York Jets and Arizona in overtime. The Bengals (3-2) had a chance to add to their misery, but blew it. “We let this one slip away,” receiver A.J. Green said. “We were just playing flat today. We didn’t help our defense at all.” Cincinnati had a chance to get within a point with 3 minutes left, but Mike Nugent was wide right on a 42-yard field goal attempt, his first miss of the season. After the Dolphins ran down the clock and forced the Bengals to spend their timeouts, Cincinnati took over at its 20-yard line following a punt. Dalton was under pressure when he sailed a pass intended for Hawkins, giving Jones an easy interception.

“I have to give it to the front line,” Jones said. “They got the pressure on the quarterback. I just needed to make a play.” The Bengals never got anything going consistently on offense. Dalton was only 26 of 43 for 234 yards with two interceptions and three sacks against a defense that came in ranked No. 1 in the league against the run. “We let a good opportunity get away from us today,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “There is no doubt in my mind about that.” Miami had one advantage: Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle was a Bengals assistant for the past 11 seasons and knew a few things about how their offense operates. “He’s never had a problem motivating guys,” Bengals safety Chris Crocker said. “You’ll definitely play hard if you’re in one of his defenses. Their front seven really played a heck of a ballgame.” So did their rookie quarterback. The Bengals are in the midst of a stretch of five consecutive games against teams starting rookie or second-year quarterbacks. They’d won the first three by turning up the pressure — Cincinnati led the NFL in sacks coming into Sunday’s game.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Rookies in the postseason, the Washington Nationals played like poised veterans. The Nationals escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, pinch hitter Tyler Moore blooped a twoout, two-run single in the eighth and Washington beat the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Sunday in an NL playoff opener. The Nationals, who had never come close to making the playoffs since moving from Montreal for the 2005 season, overcame a wild start by 21-game winner Gio Gonzalez. Reliever Ryan Mattheus needed just two pitches to bail out the Nationals in the seventh with St. Louis ahead 2-1. Tyler Clippard worked around an error in the eighth and Drew Storen saved it with a 1-2-3 ninth. The NL East champion

Nationals led the majors with 98 wins this season, and brought postseason baseball to Washington for the first time since 1933. The Nats go for a 2-0 series lead Monday when Jordan Zimmermann opposes Jaime Garcia. The Cardinals made it to the best-of-five division series by beating Atlanta in the wild-card matchup Friday. But St. Louis wasted a 10strikeout gem by Adam Wainwright, failing to capitalize enough on Gonzalez’s career high-tying seven walks and frustrating its towel-waving fans. A standing room crowd of 47,078, among the largest at 7-year-old Busch Stadium, bundled up for a game that began in 54-degree chill and featured kaleidoscope lateafternoon shadows that bedeviled hitters for several innings.

Giants rally, keep Browns winless EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The “rookie mistake” excuse is wearing thin for quarterback Brandon Weeden and the winless Cleveland Browns. Weeden committed a big one Sunday as the Browns fell to 0-5 with a 41-27 loss to the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Weeden was sharp for much of the first half, but made a terrible decision on third-and-1 from the Giants 25 with the Browns leading 17-10. With running back Trent Richardson, another of Cleveland’s high-profile rookies, not on the field, Weeden rolled out and forced a pass to Josh Gordon that sailed high, directly to Stevie Brown. The backup safety sped down the left sideline for 46 yards. “We were trying to get up to the line quick and get a

quick little shot to the flat,” Weeden said. “They covered it well. I was trying to make a play. It was stupid. That was the one throw I want back.” Browns coach Pat Shurmur did not disagree. “It’s a bad decision and a nice play by the defense,” Shurmur said. “I don’t care if you’re a rookie. I don’t care if you’ve been in the league a long time. You don’t do that. I think we’ve got to get off this rookie kick, and we’ve got to play ball.” That turnover swung the momentum dramatically in the Giants’ favor as they scored a pair of touchdowns and a field goal in the final three minutes of the quarter for a 27-17 lead at the half. Ahmad Bradshaw and the Giants took it from there. Bradshaw, who fumbled on the first play from scrimmage to set up a Cleveland touch-

down was unstoppable after that, surpassing his yardage on the ground for the season with a career-best 200 yards. The passing game was there, too. Victor Cruz had a career-best three touchdown catches. Eli Manning hit Cruz for scores of 3, 7 and 28 yards. “We showed how resilient we are,” said Cruz, who entered the game leading the NFL with 32 receptions and added five for 50 yards. “We started off rough, getting behind the 8-ball a bit, but we were able to keep our wits about us. We understand we’ll be able to make some plays offensively.” Bradshaw added a 4-yard run as he darted inside and outside and frequently broke tackles. Bradshaw’s yardage on 30 carries easily beat the 132 he had heading into the game.

Stammen sets sights on World Series BY KYLE SHANER Civitas Media WASHINGTON — It’s been a breakout season for Craig Stammen and the Washington Nationals, who are heading to the postseason for the first time in the Versailles alumnus’ career. The Nationals had the best record in baseball during the 2012 season to win the National League East. It’s the first time the franchise has ever won its division (excluding the team’s first-place finish in the strike shortened 1994 season), including the team’s days as the Montreal Expos. And with the divisional championship, the Nationals are getting their first taste of the playoffs since 1981 when they were known as the Expos. “It’s pretty amazing how far we’ve come in the last couple years,” said Stammen, who was born in 1984. The success of the Nationals has followed a similar arch to Stammen’s success. Before this year, Stammen essentially had spent two seasons in the majors. He had a 5.11 ERA in 2009 and a 5.13 ERA in 2010 as a starting pitcher. Last year the North Star

As a middle reliever and “I’ve taken to the role and long reliever, Stammen really enjoy it,” he said. helped the Nationals post the While Stammen is pleased

with his success and Washington’s league-leading 98 regular season wins, he and his teammates aren’t satisfied yet. Midway through the season the team set winning the World Series as a goal, Stammen said, and now anything less would be a disappointment. “I think it’s our only goal right now,” he said. “I don’t think we’re going to be satisfied if we only win the division series or win the NLCS.” As the National League’s top-seeded team, Washington has the advantage of playing the winner of the wild card game in a series beginning today. This is the first year Major League Baseball has added a second wild card to each league, which resulted in the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals matching up in the National League for a one-game series. “They’re both really good teams,” Stammen said following the Nationals’ regular season finale Wednesday. “Either one of them is going to be a really tough match up for us.” If the Nationals would win their divisional series, they would advance to the National League Championship Series against either the

Cincinnati Reds or the San Francisco Giants. “Can’t say it hasn’t crossed my mind,” Stammen said about potentially playing the Reds, his favorite team while growing up. Stammen said it’s surreal to be in the playoffs. The Nationals have played in some big playoff-like series late in the season, he said, but he’ll be even more amped up for the playoffs. “It’s really exciting,” Stammen said. “We got a little bit of a taste of it in St. Louis and here at home against the Phillies. The atmosphere was definitely playoff like.” And the city of Washington is getting behind the team and showing a lot of support, Stammen said. It’s the first time since 1933 when the Washington Senators lost in the World Series that a team from the city has made the playoffs, and it’s special to be a part of that, he said. “I think they’re pretty pumped up,” said Stammen, who was drafted by the Nationals in 2005, the same year the franchise moved to Washington from Montreal. “You see a lot of people wearing Nationals gear in the city. Even non-baseball fans are wanting a Nationals shirt or hat to wear.”

Reds lose Cueto to injury Lehman wins 12th Cueto wants to see how he responds Sunday. “I really feel better right now,” Cueto said after the game. “This is my first time it happened.” He retired leadoff man Angel Pagan on a strikeout. During the atbat, Pagan stepped out of the batter’s box and was granted time. Cueto apparently didn’t see it and continued his motion, but Baker said pitching coach Bryan Price had alerted him to Cueto’s discomfort beforehand. The Reds turned to winning pitcher Sam LeCure and got four innings of relief from Mat Latos on three days’ rest for the first time in his career, followed by three more relievers. Cueto threw eight pitches and six strikes for the earliest postseason exit by a starter since Atlanta’s John Thomson lasted onethird of an inning in Game 3 of a 2004 NL division series against Houston. Thomson came out with a sore muscle in his left side.

Four minutes into the second half, Kronenberger had an assist to Franklin, who kicked the ball past the goalie for the team’s third goal. “Three minutes later, Elizabeth Edwards dribbled past three players and kicked it in,” said Schroeder.

FRANCISCO SAN (AP) — Johnny Cueto warned the Cincinnati Reds after his warmup that he had experienced a sharp pain on the right side of his back when he made his final two throws in the bullpen. Cueto lasted just eight pitches after that. He left his Game 1 start against San Francisco on Saturday night in the first inning because of back spasms, then the Reds hung on to beat the Giants 5-2 behind their stellar bullpen. “I feel really proud about my team. I feel proud about the pitchers,” Cueto said. “They all came in and did their job.” The Reds said he is day to day. The righthander threw a second strike to No. 2 hitter Marco Scutaro and walked off the mound in obvious pain. A trainer and manager Dusty Baker rushed out to check on him, and the 19-game winner came out moments later. Now, the Reds hope to get him back this series.

Lehman wins 2-1 The Lehman boys soc-

cer team traveled to Enon on Saturday to take on division 2 Greenon High School and came away with a 2-1 victory and improved their record to 6-14. The first 25 minutes of the game was a defensive battle with only two shots being taken. “Their diamond defense was confusing us a little in the first half but we finally got thru to the boys that the middle of the diamond was open we started to get some good shots on goal” said Lehman coach Tom Thornton. “Unfortunately every shot we took missed the net by inches or was directly at their keeper” The scoring got started at the 4 minute mark of the first half when a Greenon player was called for in inadvertent hand ball in the box. Seth Bensman’s PK try was blocked by the Greenon keeper but Noah Dunn followed and put the rebound into the net. “We worked on finishing all week and it is nice to see all the hard work pay off” said Thornton. Then with 1 minute left in the half senior midfielder Zach Taylor put a free kick through to Seth Bensman who beat the goalie to the wide side of the net and made the score 2-0 at halftime. The second half started just like the first. There was not a shot on goal until about 6 minutes were left in the game. Greenon finally scored with 4 minutes left when Chuck Pry crossed the ball from the left side and Cody Carpenter finished it to make the score 2-1. “After Greenon scored this goal they found new life and really started to get some shots,” said Thornton. “But our Goalie Nick Earhart was up to the task. He made four incredible saves in the last three minutes of the game. He also played three corner kicks perfectly by going high and catching them or punching them away. If we gave

game balls he would have deserved it. The kids mobbed him after the game. It is nice to see this team come together.” Earhart finished the game with 10 saves. Lehman’s next game is today at Lehman High School against Division 2 Bellefontaine. It start at 5 p.m.

Versailles beats NB VERSAILLES — The Versailles football team used its running game and defense to defeat New Bremen 42-8 Friday night. Under a steady stream of rain, Versailles (5-2, 4-1 Midwest Athletic Conference) relied on its running game, which kept the game close early. But as the night wore on, Versailles started to break things open. "With the conditions it was hard to get everything going so we had to stick with the running game, just to not put ourselves in bad potions so it took a little while to get on the board," Versailles coach Adam Miller said. New Bremen (2-5, 2-3 MAC) started with the ball first and ran several minutes off the clock, mainly with runs and a couple long passes from quarterback Garrett Westerbeck. New Bremen into Versailles territory, but then a couple tackles behind the line of scrimmage by Versailles' Brandon Christian

forced the Cardinals to punt. Versailles got the ball at its own 21-yard line. After a pass for a first down from Nick Campbell to Kyle Dieringer, Versailles used runs by Campbell, MIke Rutschilling and Dieringer to move down the field. The drive finally culminated in a 10-yard touchdown pass from Campbell to Damian Richard with 9:20 left in the first quarter to put Versailles up 7-0. New Bremen got one first down on its next drive before Versailles got a stop and forced a punt, taking over at its own 6. The Tigers consistently picked up big chunks of yards in a five-play drive covering 84 yards that ended in a 17-yard touchdown run by Rutschilling to make it 14-0. Versailles defense started to clamp down even more on New Bremen's next drive and gave the Cardinals nothing. After a punt gave the Tigers the ball at their own 40, it took just one play for Campbell to find Jacob Barga for a 60-yard touchdown pass to put Versailles up 21-0 with less than two minutes left in the first half. The Versailles defense shut down New Bremen again on the next drive and forced another punt. This time the snap rolled back to the Cardinal punter, and the Tigers took him down at the New Bremen 3.

Newspaper Knowledge What is Columbus Day all about? Celebrated the second Monday of October, Columbus Day is day set aside to commemorate Christopher Columbus's discovery of the Americas on October 12, 1492. It is also a day to celebrate the role Italian immigrants have played in making the United States great. Columbus Day is a legal holiday in the United States. Schools, government offices, post offices, and banks are closed. Some businesses are also closed. Others stay open. Virtually all stores are open on Columbus Day, and many hold special sales. Countries in North and South America remember Columbus's discovery in different ways. October 12 is celebrated as "Discovery Day" in the Bahamas. It is celebrated as Día de la Raza (Day of the Race) in many parts of Latin America. It is celebrated as Día de la Resistencia Indígena (Day of the Indigenous Resistance) in Venezuela.

Christopher Columbus

Who was Christopher Columbus? Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1451. He was born into what most would consider a middle class family. But like most children of the era, he was expected to begin preparing for a career at an early age. In his later writings, Columbus claimed he first went to sea at the age of 10. In 1470, following a shipwreck off the coast of Portugal, Columbus took up residence in that country. From there, he continued to sail, following established routes and making voyages as far as Iceland. But Columbus wanted to do more. Columbus wanted to find a shorter route to the lands described by Marco Polo some 200 years before – China, Japan, India, and the East Indies. What's more, Columbus believed the secret to finding a shorter route lay in sailing west. With plans in hand, Columbus approached King John II of Portugal in 1485. He asked for three sturdy ships and enough money to fund a year's voyage of discovery. King John II referred the matter to his advisers. The advisers reviewed Columbus's plans. Columbus believed he could reach land in just five weeks, but the king's advisers thought the proposed voyage would take much longer. Ultimately, the advisers said the voyage would be a poor investment, and the king rejected Columbus's request. Columbus appealed to the court again three years later. By that time, though, Bartholomew Diaz had successfully sailed around the tip of Africa, and Portugal had lost all interest in western exploration. So Columbus took his plans on to King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella I of Spain. Again, plans were referred to committee. Again, the committee believed Columbus had grossly underestimated the length of such a journey, and funding was refused. But the king and queen of Spain did not want Columbus to take his proposal elsewhere, so they provided him with an annual salary.They also issued a decree

15 Interesting Facts About Christopher Columbus 1. Christopher Columbus is believed to have been born between Aug. 25 and Oct. 31, 1451. 2. Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy, and his given name was Cristoforo Colombo.

3. Christopher Columbus began a career as a seafarer at the age of 14 and later supported himself by selling maps and charts. 4. Christopher Columbus believed that Asia would be 2,400 miles west. In fact, 10,000 nautical miles lay between Europe and Asia.

stating that he was to be given free food and lodging throughout the country. Still, Columbus wanted more. He found private investors to underwrite roughly half the anticipated cost of his expedition and kept asking the crown for the rest of the money – along with certain other provisions. If Columbus discovered new land, he was to be named "Admiral of the Ocean Sea." He was to be appointed governor of any newly-found lands. He also requested 10 percent of all revenues produced through new lands. At last, Columbus succeeded in persuading Ferdinand to underwrite the venture, and on Aug. 3, 1492, Columbus set sail with 90 crewmen and three ships, the Nina, the

5. Christopher Columbus first went to King John of Portugal with his idea to find a westward sea passage to Asia but after months of waiting, the answer was no thank you. 6. Queen Isabella's response to Columbus's idea was that his price was to high and that he wanted too many ships. 7. If he in fact reached the Indies, Christopher Columbus was asking for a title, a coat or arms and one tenth of all profits for Spain. 8. It took Queen Isabella six years to agree. Christopher Columbus, having given up, was 4 miles out of town when the Queen's courier caught up with him and shared the news.

Pinta and the Santa Maria. It was a dangerous voyage. No one had ever attempted to sail so far or so long without seeing land. After two months at sea, many of Columbus's crew wanted to turn back. They had already traveled much longer than originally planned, with no land in sight. Columbus insisted, however, that they press on. And on Oct. 12, 1492, land was spotted -- land Columbus would call "San Salvador." Columbus believed he had reached an island off the coast of the East Indies and dubbed the native inhabitants "Indians" as a result. Columbus was wrong. He had, in fact, stumbled onto the Americas.

9. It wasn't easy to get the money or the ships, but it was even harder to find a crew. Many people still believed that the Earth was flat and that at some point a ship would hit a waterfall and fall off of the side of the Earth. 10. A royal decree on April 30, 1492, ordered the suspension of judicial proceedings against criminals that agreed to sail with Christopher Columbus. Even so, only four prisoners took advantage of this offer. 11. Christopher Columbus's first voyage with the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria began on Aug. 3, 1492. On Oct. 12, 1492, a sailor on the Pinta shouted "Tierra!" or "Land!"

crew were actually seeing the island of San Salvador, 375 miles off of the coast of Florida. 13. Columbus "discovered" (for the Europeans) many of the Caribbean Islands, South America and Central America. 14. On Christmas Eve, Christopher Columbus allowed an experienced boy to steer the Santa Maria and later that night the ship crashed onto a reef near Hispaniola. Only the Nina and Pinta would return to Spain. 15. Even though he made three return trips west, Christopher Columbus never actually stepped foot on the mainland of North America.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’re keen to improve your health today. (And probably just as keen to make improvements where you work.) Fortunately, others will help you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Romance is hot and heavy today because you feel unusually passionate. Some of you will develop a heavy crush on someone right out of the blue. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a wonderful day to make your home more attractive. In particular, you will want to get rid of what you don’t like in order to bring in something you do like. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Communication with others today will be intense yet friendly. You’re in a great mood, and you want others to share in your enthusiasm for life. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) When it comes to financial matters today, you might be obsessed about earning more money, but you might equally be obsessed about buying something. (“I have to have those boots!”) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’re unusually charming and magnetic today, which is why others will be attracted to you. Use this to your advantage by asking for what you want. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A hidden love affair or a secret meeting might take place today for many of you. For others, it will just be a private crush on someone only you know about. (Sigh.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You’ll find it easy to rally your troops today in group situations. People will do your bidding. (Privately, a friend might become a lover.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Some of you will develop a crush on your boss today or someone who is older, richer or in a position of authority. Others will impress the same people. (An interesting day.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) If you can travel anywhere for pleasure today, you’ll be thrilled. You have a strong desire to get away from it all, especially for fun and adventure! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your physical nature is aroused today, making this a passionate day for those of you with romantic partners. But you might feel just as passionate about how something is to be shared or divided. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Relations with partners and close friends are not casual today. You feel intensely emotional. Nevertheless, this is a fun day for you! YOU BORN TODAY People sense your down-to-earth humanness because you invariably lead with your heart rather than your head. You’re a shrewd observer of society and the people around you. You are multitalented, inspirational and highly sensitive. You often guide or influence others whether you are aware of this or not. A lovely, social year ahead awaits you. All relationships will be blessed.
