Lenhart makes changes Sheriff dismisses Eilerman, 2 Allen County deputies BY KATHY LEESE named Shelby Newly County Sheriff John Lenhart has been making some personnel changes within the department, including the termination of Capt. Michael Eilerman, who served as No. 2 Lenhart under Sheriff Dean Kimpel. Kimpel stepped aside last week pending the outcome of criminal charges felony

against him and the Shelby County Commissioners named Lenhart as interim replacement. Lenhart, of Jackson Center, reportedly terminated Eilerman Friday soon after being sworn in. “I think, first of all, Eilerman was in a fiduciary position, a position of trust,” Lenhart said, discussing the termination. He said he thanked Eilerman for his service but told him his services would no longer be needed. Also an issue, Lenhart said, was the number of high rank-

ing officers that were serving under Kimpel, something Lenhart felt was excessive. “I don’t need that many managers,” he said. Lenhart said cutting Eilerman’s position is also a cost saving measure. Additionally, Lenhart cut two sheriff’s office employees who were providing security at the Shelby County Courthouse. They included Deputies Lawrence “Mike” Pierce and Steve Hoverman, both from Allen County. “They’re decent guys,” Lenhart said, but they were “friends of the former sheriff

he had moonlighting down here.” Lenhart said he intends to replace them with people from Shelby County. Until appointments are made, reserve deputies will provide courthouse security. The sheriff said he is looking for “persons who are interested in a law enforcement career” and who have their law enforcement commission. Eilerman was being paid $54,246 per year, which broke down to $2,086.40 bi-weekly or $26.08 per hour. According to the Shelby County AudiSee LENHART/Page 3A

PASS supports city income tax increase A committee of Sidney citizens has been formed to promote Yes votes on the Nov. 8, 2011 ballot issue to generate funds for the resurfacing of Sidney’s streets. The committee, Positive Action for Sidney’s Streets (PASS), encourages Sidney voters to approve the proposed 0.25 percent five-year increase in the city of Sidney income tax rate. Funds generated by the temporary tax will be restricted only for the “construction and re-construction of streets, alleys, bridges, curbs and gutters” within the city of Sidney.

The committee notes the city is responsible for the upkeep of 103 miles of streets, but that the city’s budget permits the resurfacing of only 2 to 2.5 miles per year. “To maintain the streets in good condition, at least 5 to 7 miles of streets should be resurfaced each year”, said Bruce Dickman, chairman of PASS. According to Dickman, significant increases in the cost of asphalt and the effects of the recession have made it impossible for the city to do resurfacing at the rate necessary. “Approval of this temporary funding will permit the resurfacing of an additional 40

miles of streets over the next five years which will make a significant improvement throughout the city,” he added. Activities of the committee are funded with private donations. The committee expects to contact voters by direct mail as well as conducting a door to door campaign. Members of the committee are: Bruce Dickman, chairman; Rhonda Keister, treasurer; Dottie Baker, Devon Beer, Stan Crosley, Bob Curlis, John Dunlap, Dawn Eilert, Gary Elsass, Dave Fogt, Farrell Kaplan, Perry Long, Tom Martin, Katie McMillan, Tom Potts and Mike Puckett.

In Sidney Municipal Court Wednesday morning, Judge Duane Goettemoeller dismissed three felony charges against Port Jefferson police officer J. Michael Blankenship in the local court and ordered Blankenship him held for action of Shelby County Common Pleas Court. Blankenship, 30, of Bellefontaine, is charged with improper handling of a firearm, a fourth degree felony; and inducing panic and vandalism, both felonies of the fifth degree. He was indicted on the charges this week by the Shelby County grand jury. The charges, filed Sept. 12 by the Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies, stem from an incident in which he allegedly damaged a police car and filed a false report with sheriff ’s deputies. Blankenship allegedly called sheriff ’s dispatch reported an incident in which the driver of a passing car pointed a gun at him on Ohio 47 outside Port Jefferson and he had given chase, had been shot and returned fire through the cruiser’s windshield. He reportedly also said he had been involved in a crash and was injured, More than a dozen deputies, state troopers and rescue personnel responded to his calls and he was transported to Wilson Memorial Hospital.

Council OKs ordinances JACKSON CENTER — During its Monday meeting, village council adopted ordinances adjusting appropriations and authorizing a fire protection contract with a portion of Stokes Township in Logan County. Both were adopted as emergency legislation. Ordinance 11-18 increases the income tax revenue fund appropriations so receipts can be transferred into the capital improvement, general improvement and note retirement funds. The increases total $31,500. Ordinance 11-19 renews the fire department’s annual contract with a small area of Stokes Township. The payment, which totaled $735 in 2010, is equal to 1.6 mills on the township’s tax evaluation, less auditor’s fees. Village administrator Stephanie Goff dis-

cussed the proposed purchase of a used wood chipper at a cost of $23,500. Council members questioned how much the chipper would be used and if the street department would use it when picking up limbs. Council asked that the street and electric department superintendents attend the next council meeting to provide more information on how the equipment would be used. Mayor Scott Klopfenstein congratulated Bev Wren, fiscal officer; Goff, and city staff for producing the village’s clean audit report being filed with the state auditor’s office. The meeting included an executive session to discuss personnel. No action was taken prior to adjournment. Council’s next regular meeting will be held Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.

Sidney in first place in Academia rankings Following three challenges, the results of the Academia second matches are finally official. There were three separate matches. One took place at Anna.

The third match took place at Russia. Russia took first place,

Jackson Center was second and Botkins finished in third. The delay in the release of official results stems from a significant amount of last-minute challenges that required thoughtful analysis, competition organizers said.

Abortion foes push fetal heartbeat bills in states

Anna engines being used

COLUMBUS (AP) — A nationwide coalition of groups anti-abortion said Wednesday it is preparing to push legislation in all 50 states requiring that pregnant women see and hear the fetal heartbeat before having an abortion. The effort follows the introduction of similar legislation at the federal level by Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. Ohio Right to Life director Mike Gonidakis, whose group is part of the coalition, said the 50-state push was not a response to a bill moving through the Ohio Legislature that would outlaw the procedure at the first detectable heartbeat. His group has not endorsed the Ohio bill because of legal concerns, though Bachmann has said she supports it. “We know it can withstand a judicial challenge, and we know it’s an approach that’s worked over the years,” Gonidakis said of his proposal. coalition’s “Hundreds of thousands of babies are alive now because their mothers heard the heartbeat and changed their minds.” Should the Ohio bill become law, it would impose the nation’s most stringent abortion limit. The legislation has divided the anti-abortion community in Ohio, the home state of International Right to Life founder Jack Willke.

GREENSBURG, Ind. (AP) — Honda is set to start up a second production shift this month at a factory in southeastern Indiana that builds the Civic sedan and its alternative-fuel counterpart, after hiring nearly 1,000 new employees. The new shift is scheduled to begin at the Greensburg factory on Oct. 24, a move Honda officials say will double the plant’s workforce and its annual production to 200,000 vehicles. Factory spokeswoman Sipes said Anita Wednesday that the new workers had been hired in phases over the last couple of months. “They are all right now training on the line, learning their processes,” Sipes told The Associated Press. “On the 24th, the shifts will split and we’ll be building double.” Honda announced plans in May for starting the additional shift in Greensburg by year’s end. The company said it had expected that production level since the factory opened in 2008 in the city about 40 miles southeast of Indianapolis, but that those

plans were delayed by the recession. Honda Motor Co. cut production in half at the Greensburg plant and elsewhere after the March tsunami that struck Japan interrupted the flow of auto parts to its U.S. factories. Sipes said the Greensburg factory returned to full production in September and that no workers were laid off during the slow-down period. The increased output will include additional production of the Civic Natural Gas, formerly the Civic GX. The Greensburg plant began mass production of the 2012 model on Tuesday and it is the only place in the world where Honda is building that vehicle, using engines from the company’s plant in Anna, Ohio. Sipes declined to say how many alternativefuel Civics are expected to be built at the factory, but said it would be about four times more than before. The company said it is expanding from 72 Honda dealers in four states selling the natural-gas model to nearly 200 dealers in 36 states.

Ohio man convicted in child porn ring RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — An Ohio man has been convicted on child porn charges in Riverside, the last U.S. conviction in an international child pornography ring that spanned three continents. Federal prosecutors say Billy Wade Carroll was convicted Tuesday of conspiracy to advertise, solicit, transport, distribute, receive and possess child pornography. He also was found guilty of committing a child

pornography offense while being required to register as a sex offender in Ohio. The 51-year-old was charged with making more than 100 posts to an Internet message bulletin board, which required members to continually post explicit images of children. Carroll faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 35 years in federal prison when he’s sentenced in January.

IN THIS photo taken Sept. 29, eastbound traffic rolls on the Ohio Turnpike in Strongsville. The number of crashes and the amount of commercial traffic reported along the Ohio Turnpike rose slightly during the first six months of its higher 70 mph speed limit compared with the same period last year, according to turnpike officials and the State Highway Patrol, who say they need more data to determine whether the increases are linked to the new speed limit.

Crashes, truck traffic up on 70 mph Ohio Turnpike COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The number of crashes and the amount of commercial traffic reported along the Ohio Turnpike rose slightly during the first six months of its higher 70 mph speed limit compared with the same period last year, according to data from turnpike officials and the State Highway Patrol. The limit increased in April from 65 mph for the 241-mile toll road that connects the Midwest and the East Coast, allowing drivers to legally zip along at 70 mph for the first time in more than three decades and adding Ohio to more than two dozen states that have that speed limit. Some turnpike officials and other supporters of the change hoped it would lure trucks back to the toll road from parallel routes that run through smaller communities and may be less suited for large vehicle traffic. The Ohio Trucking Association opposed the change, arguing it might lead to more crashes as vehicles zigzag past slower-traveling trucks that top out at speeds several notches below 70 mph. “If there’s a road that’s going to be at 70 mph,

the Ohio Turnpike is definitely engineered and maintained for it,” highway patrol Capt. Chris Zurcher said. He noted that wet weather and construction work, which also affect crash data, vary from year to year. About 1,270 crashes were recorded on the turnpike from April through September, including two that were fatal, according to the patrol. That’s up from 1,159 during those six months in 2010. The number of speeding citations issued in that time also rose by about 170, patrol data showed. Through early Octo1,912 turnpike ber, crashes were reported. In the past few years, that annual total has ranged from about 2,100 to nearly 2,600.

Officials say they need more data to determine whether the recent increases in truck traffic and crashes are linked to the new speed limit. When the limit for commercial vehicles rose from 55 mph to 65 mph in 2004, the patrol found injury and fatal crashes also increased in the following year and a half. Turnpike passenger traffic dropped slightly, possibly affected by a down economy and high gas prices, so turnpike officials see it as a good sign that truck traffic is up, interim executive director Dan Castrigano said. The turnpike recorded more than 21.4 million passenger vehicles from April to September, about 237,000 fewer than in the comparable period last year.

Crash claims 2nd victim NEW YORK (AP) — A woman who was hospitalized after a helicopter crashed into New York City’s East River has become the second person to die from the accident. A hospital spokeswoman on Wednesday confirmed the death of 43-year-old Helen Tamaki, of New Zealand. Tamaki had been in critical condition after the crash. Bellevue Hospital Center spokeswoman Francis Arscott says Tamaki died Tuesday night from injuries suffered in the crash. The cause of death will be determined by the city’s medical examiner.

Bomb was ‘blessed weapon’ DETROIT (AP) — A Nigerian man who’s pleaded guilty to trying to blow up an international flight for al-Qaida with a bomb in his underwear says he committed terrorism in retaliation for the killing of Muslims around the world. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab told a Detroit courtroom Wednesday that the bomb was a “blessed weapon to save the lives of innocent Muslims.” Abdulmutallab has pleaded guilty on the second day of his trial to charges that include conspiracy to commit terrorism and attempted murder. He says he tried to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 with nearly 300 people on board on Christmas 2009.

Egypt denies shooting CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s military rulers blamed Christian protesters and “enemies of the revolution” on Wednesday for triggering the clashes that left 26 dead, almost all of them Christians. The accusation was sure to enflame the fury within and beyond the Christian community over the worst violence since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster. At a lengthy news conference to present their version of the events, generals from the Supreme Council of Armed Forces showed footage of priests and a Coptic Christian activist they accused of “instigating” the violence on Sunday night with calls for demonstrations and storming the state television building. He accused protesters of “savage” attacks on the military.


A marathon birth CHICAGO (AP) — Amber Miller felt contractions just minutes after crossing the finish line at the Chicago Marathon. A few hours later, the suburban Chicago woman — who slogged her way through 26.2 miles while nearly 39 weeks pregnant — delivered a healthy baby girl. “For me, it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. I was running up until that point anyway,” Miller told The Associated Press in an interview from the hospital where she was recovering Monday. “I am crazy about running.” Sunday’s marathon was the eighth for the 27-yearold, who has been running for more than a dozen years.

Romney inevitable? Perry weighs TV ads to slow him WASHINGTON (AP) — Mitt Romney seems firmly in command in a Republican presidential field that hasn’t figured out how to stop him. Twelve weeks before the first party voting, the GOP establishment is coalescing around the former Massachusetts governor. He has more campaign experience, money and organization than anyone else. He showed again this week that he’s the best debater in the bunch. And President Barack Obama’s campaign is treating him almost as the presumptive nominee — even though Romney still faces challenges in some early voting states. The biggest question in Republican circles is when and how Texas Gov. Rick Perry will use his own substantial cam-

paign funds to buy TV ads hitting Romney’s record on health care, abortion, gay rights and job creation. Perry’s campaign, which seems best-positioned to challenge Romney, dropped broad hints Wednesday that the moment is near. “Now that the field is full, the air war will start soon,” said Katon Dawson, former chairman of the South Carolina GOP and Perry’s top adviser in the state. “We seem to be inside a 100-day window,” Dawson said. “Governor Perry will be extremely competitive on the air.” The tone is different up the coast in New Hampshire. Among rank-and-file Republicans there, even those who favor other candidates have a sense that Romney has gained an air of inevitability. “It’s very

frustrating,” said state Rep. Jim Waddell, of Hampton, who backs former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Some go even further about Perry’s recent drop. “In New Hampshire, he certainly is done,” said GOP state Rep. Keith Murphy, who is uncommitted in the race. Perry’s advisers say there’s plenty of time to overtake Romney in key states. They are frustrated by bad reviews of the Texan’s debate performances, including Tuesday’s in New Hampshire. They say it’s Romney who is ripe for sharp criticism of his revised positions on abortion, gay rights and gun control, all now markedly more conservative than in the 1990s and early 2000s. In the debates so far, Perry has generally fallen flat when

hitting Romney’s “flip-flops” and the health care initiative that required Massachusetts residents to obtain medical insurance. Perry’s advisers say aggressive TV ads will do a far more powerful job. Although Republican and Democratic insiders see Romney as the front-runner, several signs give Perry and the other rivals hope. Most Republican polls show Romney falling well short of a majority of support, as restless voters consider one alternative after another. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota surged in mid-summer, then fell as Perry briefly soared. In recent polls, former pizza company executive Herman Cain has ranked as Romney’s top rival, although few campaign strategists believe he will be the nominee.

AN IRAQI policeman inspects a crater caused by a car bomb attack in front of a police station in Baghdad, Iraq, Wednesday. A slew of bombings targeting Iraqi police in Baghdad on Wednesday morning killed 12 people and wounded more than 20, Iraqi officials said.

Explosions, suicide bombers kill 25 BAGHDAD (AP) — Attacks aimed at Iraqi police, including two in which assailants slammed explosives-packed cars into police stations, killed 25 people Wednesday and maimed dozens in the worst violence in the capital since August. Less than three months before American troops are to leave Iraq, the blasts were a brutal example of the challenges Iraqi security forces will face as they assume sole responsibility for containing terror groups such as alQaida. The blasts were aimed at the police, generally considered to be the weakest section of the country’s security forces. Just days ago, authorities said the Iraqi army was delaying a scheduled pullout from the cities over concerns about whether the police were ready to provide security. In the southern Karradah neighborhood, a suicide car

bomb attack on a police station killed 13 people and wounded 25, Baghdad police officials said. Smoke rose from the blast site as ambulances rushed to the scene, their sirens wailing. Iraqi army helicopters circled overhead. “The scene was horrific,” said Salim Ghadban, who was having breakfast when he heard a loud explosion. “We saw terrified people, some injured, running in our direction, and we rushed to the attacked police station and saw burned bodies and charred cars,” he said. “We helped cover the burned bodies until the ambulances arrived.” At a nearby hospital where the victims were taken, Hardan Salah sat with a friend, two shrapnel wounds to his back and Xrays of his injuries laying on the bed nearby. He said he was waiting across the street from the police station for his friend when the suicide

bomber struck. “I was making some phone calls when I heard the explosion, which threw me to the ground. The sound and the wind of the explosion were coming from the back. I immediately fell down,” he said. In the mainly Shiite neighborhood of Hurriyah, another suicide car bomber targeted a police station and killed nine people, two Baghdad police officials said. Twenty-seven people were wounded in that blast. The attack in Hurriyah was especially remarkable because the neighborhood, a stronghold of powerful Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, is almost entirely surrounded by blast walls. Access is tightly restricted through four entrances manned by the Iraqi army. Two roadside bombs and a bomb in a parked car also killed two policemen and a civilian in western Baghdad.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Forty-eight years after the “I Have a Dream” speech, a towering memorial has been erected to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. as a man of peace among the many monuments to wars and presidents in the nation’s capital. The road to this weekend’s dedication of King’s memorial, however, has run through hurdles of all kinds — not unlike the long struggle over King’s legacy itself. Since King’s death, there have been financial worries at the King Center in Atlanta, and legal fights over the use of his image and words and over control of the civil rights organization he co-founded. Many people wanted to help shape King’s bricks-andmortar legacy as well, the first memorial for a black leader on the National Mall. There were skirmishes over who would sculpt King’s likeness, where the granite would come from and who would profit from the $120 million mammoth fundraising effort as the family demanded a licensing fee to support its Atlanta priorities. Overall costs for the memorial rose over time, and the government demanded tougher security amid threats of domestic terrorism, dragging the project 15 years from the time Congress authorized it in 1996 and 27 years from when King’s fraternity first proposed it. Lesser hurdles have halted others who aspired to build monuments on the mall. “We have persevered,” said Harry Johnson, a 57-year-old Houston attorney and Alpha Phi Alpha brother who for the past 11 years led an effort that is to culminate Sunday with a ceremony featuring President Barack Obama. Originally set for Aug. 28, the 48th anniversary of the “Dream” speech, the dedication was postponed by organizers and the National Park Service due to Hurricane Irene.

Family lost in corn maze calls 911 DANVERS, Mass. (AP) — Authorities in Massachusetts say a family that got lost in a seven-acre corn maze called 911 for help, apparently taking advantage of the police department’s motto that says “We Want To Be Bothered.” The maze at Connors Farm in Danvers has pathways totaling seven-miles long and can take up to an hour to navigate. A police officer and his dog entered the maze with a farm manager on Columbus Day to search for the disoriented father, mother and two children, including a three-weeks-old infant. The family didn’t realize they had almost made their way out and were just 25 feet from the street. It took the search party about 10 min-

utes to find the family. They were helped by a police dispatcher who stayed on the phone with the caller and asked the couple to yell for help to enable those looking for them to identify their location. “Never again!” the woman is heard telling the dispatcher on police tapes. “We thought this would be fun, instead it’s a nightmare.” The family called police for help after sunset, shortly after the farm’s closing time. “Hi I just called, I’m still stuck at Connor’s Farms, I don’t see anybody I’m really scared, it’s really dark and we’ve got a three-week-old baby with us,” the woman is heard on police tapes telling the dispatcher. Farm Manager Rich Potter said farm

workers had not even checked to see if visitors were still making their way through the maze. Potter said he only became aware that the family was lost in the maze when a police cruiser pulled up and an officer told him that some people had called for help. It was not clear how long the family had been wandering through the long corn stalks before they called police, farm owner Bob Connors said. “We were out in the parking lot and we didn’t hear them, so they couldn’t have been there too long — I think they got frustrated and called (police) on their own,” Connors said. “They could see the street lights, they could hear the cars, they couldn’t find their way out.”

The Shelby County Council on Aging heard from Betty Hughes, of the Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) Advisory Council, during its most recent meeting that the new state budget has increased the number of people who will receive home and communitybased services. She reported the Alzheimer’s respite line item had been reduced by 53.85 percent but that the Ohio Department of Aging had won a federal grant of $200,000 for the Life Span Respite Care Program. In addition, Casey Allen, district representative for AAA, noted the local agency received a 3 percent rate reduction for Passport and Assisted Living Providers, a 10 percent rate cut for emergency response systems and a 10 percent cut overall in the 201213 appropriation to the Passport administrative and agencies, AAA Catholic Social Services. Guest speaker was Mark McDaniel, executive director of TriCounty Mental Health Department, who discussed the mental health and recovery levy, a .6-mill levy for five years that will be on the November ballot. He stressed that it is a renewal levy, not a new tax and not an increase in millage. He said the levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home approximately $15 per year.

Sidney Daily News,Thursday, October 13, 2011

Sweetest Day concert set The First Presbyterian Church of Sidney will host a Sweetest Day concert Saturday at 7 p.m. Returning to the area will be “The Voices of Ohio,” vocal ensemble, with musicians from all across the state of Ohio. The free event will take place at the church, located at 202 N. Miami Ave. More than just an adult show choir, The Voices of Ohio draws on a collective membership that has more than 45 years of show business experience, event organizers said. People of all ages will enjoy their music and their entertainment.

Over the years, The Voices of Ohio has performed in concert halls throughout Europe, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Tournament of Roses Parade, the White House Rose Garden and the Ohio State Fair. Under the direction of founder Girrard Stewart, an Orville native, The Voices of Ohio performs a repertoire that reads like a popular songbook. They show their versatility, not only as an entire ensemble, but with their members also performing solos, duets and small ensembles. Songs the group performs in-

clude turn-of-the-century classics (“A Shanty in Old Shanty Town” and “Alexander’s Ragtime Band”), big band numbers from the 1940s (“Sentimental Journey”), a rockin’ number from the 1950s (“Jailhouse Rock”), hits from Broadway (“Rhythm of Life”), songs of hope and inspiration (“How Great Thou Art”) and a red, white and blue finale (“The Battle Hymn of the Republic”). The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the church office at 492-4597 or email

Series offered on Catholic Church history FORT LORAMIE — “The Hidden Thread,” a lecture series on the history of h e t Catholic Church, will be presented St. at Michael’s Schmiesing Hall Nov. 7, 14, 21 and 29 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. by Dr. Kevin Schmiesing. Each evening stands on its on; however, it is a progressive history les-

son and participants are encouraged to attend all four evenings, organizers said. The program topics for each night are: • Nov. 7 — The Birth of Christianity. • Nov. 14 — Scandal and the Sacred. • Nov. 21 — Reformation and Restoration. • Nov. 28 — A Missionary Church. The series is free and open to the public. For registration, call the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis at 498-1192. The story of the

Catholic Church through 2,000 years is one of saints and sinners, princes and peasants, monks and missionaries, program organizers said. The church, made up of human beings, is manifestly imperfect and prone to scandal. Yet, the followers of Christ also display wisdom, holiness and zeal. Through it all, with the eyes of faith, we can discern the “hidden thread” of divine providence, organizers said. Schmiesing holds a

Ph.D. in American history from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts in history from Franciscan University of Steubenville. Author of two books on American church history, he is executive director of and does a weekly feature, “This Week in Catholic History,” for “The SonRise Morning Show” on Sacred Heart Radio in Cincinnati. He lives in Sidney with his wife, Anne, and their six children.

BOTKINS — Botkins resident and Azusa Pacific University student Marlee M. Miller made the academic dean’s list at APU. Miller is honored for a spring 2011 academic standing of 3.5 or better grade-point average. Miller is a business administration major, who is joined by more than 1,575 students receiving the same honor. Azusa Pacific University is an evangelical, Christian university committed to God first and excellence in higher education. With 53 undergraduate majors, 37 master’s degrees, 21 credentials, seven doctoral programs, and five certificates, the university offers its more than 9,200 students education on campus, online and at seven regional centers throughout Southern California.

options, but ultimately they approved the purchase of the replacement equipment at a cost of $1,129.65. Kent also announced the following activities for the village. The Sidney/Shelby County Health Department will be sponsoring flu shots at St. Paul’s Oct. 20 from 4 to 6 p.m. Halloween for the village is set for Oct. 27 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The council also voted to sell this year’s soybean crop. In the past the council has made decisions to store or sell directly from the field and Ed Brown suggested that the price of soybeans is high and the council voted to sell directly from the field. “They’re at a good price,” said Brown. “At over 10 bucks a bushel, we’re making money.” Jeff Beigel, Municipal Court judge candidate, appeared before the council for a brief overview of the race for municipal court judge and explained to council members what they can expect during the campaign. “You’ll find in the election that the candidates are not out talking about issues a lot,” said Beigel. “We are constrained by the code of judicial conduct. We’re suppose to concentrate on talking about character, reputation, independence, integrity, impartiality, those sorts of things.” The council has received roughly 52 resumes for the fiscal officer position and the resumes were reviewed during executive session.

Sekas saves tabs for school Jim Sekas still keeps tabs on and for the Sidney City Schools. For the past 10 years, Jim, grandfather of Andrew, (a recent Sidney High School graduate) and Claire Bonnoront(a Sidney High School junior), has graciously donated more than 102 half-gallon to gallon sized milk containers filled to the brim with pop tabs to benefit Northwood and the former Central Elementary recycling and student council programs. After the tabs are recycled, monies from Jim’s tabs, as well as students’ at the respec-

tive schools, enable the school to purchase supplies, make donations to community resource agencies and assist the Ronald McDonald House in Dayton. Student council adviser, Teresa Cegledy explained, “Jim has always had a great heart for the Sidney City Schools. His donations over the last ten years may seem small to some, however, they have generated over $300 and helped countless families at the Ronald McDonald House. We are very pleased to have Jim assist us every year and support our schools.”

According to Duzick, the power company had trimmed the limbs around the transformers but had left limbs around the lines alone. “This is just great,” said Duzick. “I’m always wearing this long sleeved shirt because I bump my arms and now I can mow without worrying about it.” Duzick was stationed on the U.S. Destroyer the USS Mugford at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. He was an electrician on the destroyer and his service to his country is what made these local men step forward to help. “We wanted to do something for someone who deserves it,” said Trustee Rick Phillips. “We heard he was in a bind and got together to help him out.” Seven men got together to trim the trees away from the roof and power lines and hauled away the limbs and branches. “No one realizes there are heroes around us,” said Terry Cupp. There is also a veterans service office in Sidney which offers assistance. The Shelby County Veterans Services is located in the Monumental Building, 133 S. Ohio Ave., and can be reached at 4987282.

SHS exchange student reports Two coaches join SHS teaching staff BY ELIN STJERNGREN


My name is Elin Stjerngren and I’m an exchange student from Sweden! I’m a junior here in Sidney high School and going to stay for ten whole months. I always loved to travel and see the world, and when the opportunity to go as an exchange student came it was very obvious for me. I saw it as a very fun and interesting experience and I just have to do it. Me and my friend planned it for a long time and it was pretty much everything we talked about. I signed up for an exchange program in summer 2010, and one year later I’m finally here! The choice of countries wasn’t hard for me; USA had always been number one. I grew up watching American movies and always loved to speak English. I thought America looked like such a fun, friendly, cool and inspiring country. I’m really excited to experience typical high school things like homecoming and prom and also experience American holidays like thanksgiving. I’ve only been here for about two months but already experienced a lot. I’m really impressed how huge the sizes of drinks are here, but I’m also impressed how friendly most of the people are. Americans are in general very outgoing and curios, which I really like. I have gotten some really funny questions about Sweden, especially if we have Mc Donald’s, cars, or if we translate all American song to Swedish. School has probably been the biggest change. In Sweden we have different schedules every day and always 10-20 minutes between each class. We get free computers and free school lunch. American schools are much stricter and don’t have a lot of time between classes. It’s a lot more “school spirit” and it’s exciting seeing the football games almost every Friday. It’s hard to say which school-system I prefer, but I do like the American way. I’ve been taking some exciting classes this year like You & Law, sociology and journalism. One thing that surprised me was the lack of geography-knowledge at some people. Some students thought Europe was a country were they speak French, and I talked to my exchange student friend in Kansas and she said her friend didn’t know Asia was a continent. Here at Sidney High School there are two exchange students, the German exchange student, Bibianca Gsmisl, and myself. We both have 7th period Sociology together and we often share information with the class and the differences between America and our own country. Like I said, I’ve only been here for about 6 weeks and have a lot more to experience. I’m really excited to see more of America and living the high school life! Like The Sidney Buzz page on facebook for our online news updates!

If you're a football player, or run track, the names may sound familiar, but not too many students know the two newest members of the Sidney High School teaching staff, Jason McGaharan and Bryan Gray. McGaharan and Gray both coach football, and McGaharan also coaches track. Before coming to Sidney, Mr. McGaharan was coaching football, basketball, and track at Northwood High School in Toledo, OH. McGaharan said that coaching led him to the education field. He already loved working was kids and was a science major, so he decided to become a teacher. Now he has been teaching for 5 years. I asked Mr. McGarhan how Sidney was different from the other places he has taught or worked at. He replied, "I would say the biggest difference is the diversity of the students here at Sidney." I also asked him what he was looking forward to this year and he said, "Teaching all of the subjects of Life Science. It is something I have a passion for and I'm excited to be teaching the things I love." The final thing I asked him is what he wanted the students of Sidney High to know about him. With a smile on his face, he looked at me and said, "Always here to help." I also interviewed Mr. Bryan Gray, another football coach who is also in his first year of teaching here at Sidney High School. Mr. Gray graduated from Urbana University in December of 2007 and was hired at Sidney in July of 2008. When asked why he entered the education field Gray replied, "My senior government teacher made a huge impact on me. I was impressed how he was able to treat each of his students fairly and appropriately even though our class was very diverse, on top of always making class interesting and relevant to us as students. That inspired me to become a teacher and to try and impact kids the same way that I was." Gray teaches two different subjects here at SHS, history and math. Gray initially wanted to teach just High School history, but was told that it may be difficult to get a job in that field and he should pick up Science or Math to go with it. "I really enjoyed history growing up and I was always good at math, so it was a natural combination for me," said Gray. This is Mr. Gray's 4th year of teaching. When asked what the biggest difference was between Sidney and other schools he had attended or taught, his response was the diversity of students. Gray once student taught at Hilliard where over 30 different languages were spoken by students throughout the district. Gray said, "That made communication very interesting at times!" I also asked Gray what he was looking forward to this year and he was very happy about being able to be at the high school in general. The final question I asked gray was: What do you want the students to know about you? He said, "I've always been a relaxed and laid back person, and always like a good laugh. I enjoy sports, traveling, new technology and being around the people that I care about. I went into education to make a difference in kids' lives in and out of the classroom, and I come with the mindset every day that I want to impact someone the same way that I was."

The next chapter

Soccer soars into season

Wanted: lovers of science

BY: EMILY BENSMAN College is a big deal. Seniors have a lot of preparation and thinking to do before making a few huge decisions. Some students know exactly what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Some are a little on the fence, but we all go through the process of planning for our futures. Many students start with taking an early ACT, usually during junior year. It is a good chance to get the feel of the test and see what it is all about. After your first time taking it, you should prepare for your next one. There are many preparation programs and classes out there. You can take the ACT as much as you would like, but three times is a good amount. You do not have to make any quick decisions on colleges or majors, but you should start to think about what your interests and skills are. There are tests to help with this, such as aptitude tests and interest inventories. It is important to consider a few things while planning, for example, money. Tuition may have to be a factor in your school options. There are always financial aid possibilities, such as student loans, grants or even scholarships. You also have to consider if the school you like has the major you want to study. Some students have already narrowed their options. Lindsey Spearman and Soloman KingWhite both plan to major in pharmacy. Spearman is looking at Ohio Northern University and hoping to get an offer to play basketball. KingWhite wants to attend The University of Kentucky. Meghan Bennett plans to attend Oklahoma State and to study in communications. Laura Cisco wants to attend The University of Cincinnati, The University of Dayton, or Miami University. She would like to major in social work or nursing. As you are finishing your preparation for college the most important thing is to apply! You have to pay for certain college applications, but you can apply as much as you would like. It is important to apply to more than one school, in case your plan does not work out. As the seniors come to the end of their high school chapter, they are soon to begin another. What are your big plans for the future?

BY: ABBY CIRIEGIO With the grass newly cut, the sidelines freshly painted, and the sound of pre-game pep talks filling the air, the Lehman boys and girls soccer seasons are in full swing! With tournament right soccer seniors around the corner, both teams are training harder than ever in preparation for the upcoming event. Having graduated twelve seniors last year, the Lehman boys soccer team may be young, but is full of talent. This year’s team consists of seniors Dan Sehlhorst, Michael Comer, David Freytag and Matt Ulrich; juniors Zach Taylor, Mitchell Bosse and Louis Gaier; sophomores Peter Comer, Rob Heckman, Seth Bensman and Noah Dunn; and freshmen Kyle Caulfield, Travis Thornton, Dylan Sherman, Andrew Lamphar, Nick Earhart, Joseph Simpson, Grant Gleason, Rocco Catanzarite, Josh West, and Jack Monnin. Senior Matt Ulrich sums up the boys’ season saying, “We are looking good and doing work on the soccer field!” The Lehman girls soccer team is looking to be more balanced than ever, having replaced the five seniors from last year. They have started out the season with some great victories and hope to continue down this path. This year’s team consists of seniors Abby Ciriegio, Carley Harrod, Laura Cisco, Katie Catanzarite, Masie Sherman, Emily Bensman and Colleen Kinninger; juniors Sarah Titterington, Kelly Wall and Stephanie McEldowney; sophomores Madeline Franklin, Marla Schroeder, Karly Baird, Taylor Lachey, Olivia Sehlhorst, Jordi Emrick, Lauren Goettemoeller, Erin Looney, Jenna Kronenberger and Grace Frantz; and freshmen Elizabeth Edwards and McKenna Guillozet. The addition of a third division in girls’ high school soccer this year brings high expectations for the Lady Cavaliers. “We have a lot of potential this year,” said Captain Katie Catanzarite. “We could go really far in the tournament if we work hard together as a team!” As these soccer teams prepare to enter into the final stages of their seasons, it is up to each and every one of us to show our support and wish them the best of luck. GO CAVS!

BY: JOHN HUSA Lehman High School offers many extracurricular activities such as sports teams, Stock Club, Relay for Life, and more. Most students want to join a club that is part of something of special interest to them. Students who enjoy science should check out Science Olympiad and TEAMS/JETS. Science Olympiad has tournaments in January, February, March and April where students compete in 23 individual and team events. These events consist of anything related to science so this club has no limit to what type of science you enjoy. This group is open to all students, and Lehman has competed at regional, state, and even national levels in the past. TEAMS/JETS, short for Tests of Engineering Aptitude in Mathematics and Science, is another club for the science lovers and those interested in engineering. This group consists of students and engineers working together to solve various engineering problems. Just like Science Olympiad, TEAMS/JETS starts later in the year as the meets take place in December through February. All students are allowed to participate so if you love to build or create, TEAMS/JETS is the club for you. Students with any interest in the field of science should take a shot at these clubs, as they are enjoyable and you always learn something new. Sophomore Robby Heckman says, “I have the greatest time in JETS; we all have a blast and learn so much along the way.” If any student has questions about these clubs, talk to Sister Ginny or Mrs. Hall as they would love to see more members of TEAMS/JETS and Science Olympiad.

Time is up BY: KENNEDY MCIVER Most students will take a timed test during the sophomore or junior year to get prepared for college. The PSAT is a standard practice test for the SAT and is the most common one. The PSAT is offered for sophomores but juniors at Lehman are required to take it. The PSAT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills, and writing skills. The advantage of taking the PSAT is that you receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and you become familiar with the kinds of questions that will be on the SAT or ACT. Preparing for tests like the PSAT can be difficult but these preparations can help. “In English class, we are going over things that help us prepare,” said junior Ally Bergman. Junior Kelly Wall said, “I plan on getting a good night’s sleep and eating a good breakfast.” Take the PSAT and prepare for college; it might be a little scary, but you will not regret it.

REPLAY 50 years ago October 13, 1961 Although Holy Angels Wings have been engaging in cage workouts ever since the October 1 starting date, Joe Buneta isn’t too wordy over his prospects for the forthcoming season, which the local parochial five will initiate with a home stand with Cridersville on November 3. “We won’t have too much this year, what with four of our first five taken by graduation,” the congenial Joe observed. He was referring to John Kerrigan, Jim O’Leary, Johnny Bensman and ButchScully.

25 years ago October 13, 1986 Sidney’s Lady Jackets advanced in the class AAA district volleyball tournament Saturday by defeating Northmont in firstround action. Sidney won 1510 and 15-6 to knock the Lady T-Bolts out of tournament play. Sharon Spinner served 10 points and Heather Stewart seven for Sidney, while Nancy Adams had seven kills.

Jackets take on 3-4 Indians BY KEN BARHORST The best four teams on Sidney’s schedule occupy the final four weeks, says head coach Adam Doenges, and that challenge continues for the Sidney Yellow Jackets Friday night when they make the short trip south to archrival Piqua in Greater Western Ohio Conference North football action. Sidney is still looking for its first win in two years after getting routed by Vandalia 64-0 last week to fall to 0-7. Piqua, meanwhile, fell to Troy to drop to 3-4. “I thought we regressed last week,” said Doenges of the loss to Vandalia. “It was unacceptable the way we practiced. I know it’s late in the year and we haven’t had a successful year. But you still have to get after it. Whether

“I keep telling our kids, this needs to be an important rivalry for us, and for it to be that, we have to win more than once every decade.” Adam Doenges Sidney head coach you’re 7-0 or 0-7, everybody wants to end the season playing their best.” That didn’t happen last week as Vandalia set a school record for margin of victory in the win and went to 6-1 on the season. The Jackets end the season with Piqua, Trotwood and Troy, the latter two a combined 13-1 right now. “We knew what we were up against last week,” said Doenges. “Vandalia is big andphysical, and very talented. We have a pretty realistic idea

of who we are and what we are capable of. We’re not at that point as a team where we can put a tremendous amount of effort into the other team. It all comes back to us. We have to worry about ourselves.” He said the Indians will come out and try to run the ball on the Jackets, and with good reason. Running back Jon Dembski is poised to go over 1,000 yards for the season, entering the game Friday with 916 so far, and 12 touchdowns. “Piqua is coming in at 3-4, but they’re very, very good,” said Doenges. “They have a lot of kids going both ways this year, and they have seven or eight seniors who are threeyear starters. “They’re an option team and they run the ball hard,” he added. “They do a nice job offensively and are able to do different things. When they throw it, it’s not a thing of

THE LEHMAN High School golf team will compete inthe Division III State Tournament starting Friday at the Scarlet Course at Ohio State. Here, the Cavs celebrate their district championship. From the left are coach Elmer Schlater, Bryce Eck, Ben Thieman, John Copella, Tyler Bergman, Sam Dean and Mitchell Shroyer.

Lehman golf team set for D-III state As the Lehman golf team prepares for the Division III state golf tournament, Cavalier senior Ben Thieman is definitely in his comfort zone. First, the state tournament is being played at the Scarlet Course, where Thieman had a breakout state tournament as a sophomore, shooting scores of 80 and 82 for a 162 total and finishing seventh overall. His game has been on the rise ever since. “I know if I could play well there two years ago, I can play well now,” Thieman said. “That’s for sure.” Probably, more importantly to Thieman, Lehman qualified as a team, after Thieman had to play as an individual at the North Star Golf Resort, where Thieman shot 85 and 82 for a 167 team. “The big thing is we have the whole team there this year,” Thieman said. “Last year, I was thinking purely as an individual. You do that to a certain degree all the time, but there are things you have to think about for the team. It is a little different.”

beauty, but it’s very effective.” Quarterback Taylor Welbaum has hit 48 of 89 passes so far for 501 yards and three touchdowns. “I keep telling our kids, this needs to be an important rivalry for us, and for it to be that, we have to win more than once every decade,” Doenges said, in reference to Piqua’s domination in the series. “It’s big to our kids, and important to them. But it’s not to the Piqua kids. The two communities are similar, both blue-collar towns. And when we compete with them in other sports, we’re right there. But we haven’t been in football for a long time.” He wants to see his team improve Friday. “We had a good week of practice, and we need to see it translate to a good performance on Friday night,” said Doenges. “It just goes back to that word — consistent.”

And the makeup of the Lehman team is very clear — and its play in the district tournament was no exception. Thieman, senior Tyler Bergman and junior John Copella make up a trio that compares with any in the state. At district Thieman and Bergman shot 76 and Copella shot 79. “Tyler (Bergman) and John (Copella) are both great players,” Thieman said. “I think that’s true. We need to play well and we will do that. Tyler played over here two years ago and both guys have played in a lot of big tournaments.” And while young in experience, Thieman said freshman Sam Dean and Mitchell Shroyer may surprise some people. “I know Sam (Dean) is not phased by big moments like this and Mitchell (Shroyer) is not either,” Thieman said. “And I can give the other guys pointers on the course — and so can Tyler — he played over here two years ago. And we will do that during the practice round (today).” While Lehman has one of

the highest scores of the 12 teams from the district tournament, Thieman knows that doesn’t mean anything. “You really can’t go by the scores. I think our district’s scores were high because of playing a tough course,” he said. “With the Scarlet course, it puts you on a level playing field. It is not just playing a tough course, but how you handle the moment.” Which is something Thieman feels very confident in. “It is a course that fits my eye,” he said. “It is going to sound funny, but it is kind of like an artist sculpting something. I just kind of feel like I can carve my way around the golf course. It would be great to do well in the individual competition.” But, as always, Thieman is more focused on the team. “If we were in the top half (top six), I think that would be super,” Thieman said. “I think that would be great for our team.” Thieman is just enjoying having the whole team there — and being on a course where past success leaves him feeling very comfortable.

ANNA — The ball is starting to bounce their way, and they’re doing the little things that good teams do. That has Anna head football coach Bryan Rioch saying “we’re on the cusp of being really good.” The Rockets have bounced back from three straight losses to win two in a row and jump right back into the hunt for a playoff spot in Division V. The wins over New Bremen and Fort Recovery have put the Rockets above .500 at 4-3, and they will go for their third win in a row Friday at home at 7:30 against 1-6 St. Henry. “The competition the last two weeks isn’t what it was the previous three weeks, but that said, the teams played us hard and physical, and we played against some really good skilled kids,” Rioch said. “We’re really close. We’re starting to to the things that good teams do, like finishing blocks, holding each other accountable, and setting high standards. If we continue, we’re going to be a dangerous team.” The Rockets have rushed for nearly 700 yards the last two weeks. “We’re starting to come off the ball and get after people,” Rioch said. “Our offensive line has done a good job, and Gage Beasecker has become a real nice complement to Cole Furgason in the backfield. “I knew the ball was going to bounce our way sooner or later,” he said. “I know you make your own breaks, but there were some strange things happening. We had one punt literally chase one of our kids and hit him in the leg (and was recovered by the punt team). The breaks we’re getting now we were not getting earlier.” The Rockets take on a St. Henry team that is struggling at 1-6. “St. Henry has a lot of pride and tradition,” Rioch said. “They’ve had to deal with some injuries. We’re going to be stout against the run and try not to give up the big play.”


The Lehman High School tennis duo of Kandis Sargeant and Nicole Larger have had an amazing season so far. Last weekend, the two captured the Division II Sectional Tournament doubles championship in Troy to advance to the district tournament this week. And earlier this week, they won their final regular-season doubles match to finish dual matches with a perfect 15-0 record. They are 23-0 overall heading into the district.

Four Turns ON UP Jimmie Johnson’s 1 MOVIN’ win at Kansas Speedway was his

1. Jimmie Johnson

55th career NASCAR Sprint Cup victory in 357 starts. Johnson is now tied with Rusty Wallace for eighth on the all-time wins list. It took Wallace 678 starts to hit the 55-win mark. Up next for Johnson? Dale Earnhardt Sr., who has 76 wins. For the record, Earnhardt got to 55 wins in 410 starts.

6. Tony Stewart

notched top-10 runs in all four of the 2011 Chase races. Edwards started the Chase ranked fifth, nine points out of first. However, his consistency has earned him 158 points in the last four events, the most among those running for a championship. SPEAKING OF WINNING TITLES ... Jimmie Johnson is the only driver that has qualified for the Chase in all eight seasons of its existence. And with his win in Kansas, he has now won at least one race in each of those eight playoff appearances. His 20 Chase wins are more than double second-place Carl Edwards’ and Tony Stewart’s eight. Johnson’s performance at Kansas also wrapped up the Manufacturers Championship for Chevrolet. Chevy has now won 35 titles, including nine in a row.

Jimmie Johnson wins in Kansas; closes points gap By MATT TALIAFERRO Athlon Sports Racing Editor

For those who have followed Jimmie Johnson’s five-year reign in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, his performance in the 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup is none-too-alarming. A deceptive 10th-place run to start the playoffs, followed by an 18thplace hiccup placed the five-time defending champion in a 29-point hole out of the gate. Were fans, pundits and competitors watching and wondering intently? Of course. Were they writing off Johnson and ace crew chief Chad Knaus as afterthoughts under a new, simplified, points-format. Absolutely not. Johnson and Knaus proved why they are not to be counted out with so many miles left to go in NASCAR’s grueling 10-race Chase marathon, making statements with second- and first-place showings in the latest two events. The win — a dominating run in Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway — landed Team 48 in third place in the Chase standings, a mere four points behind Carl Edwards, who has proven to be the playoffs’ most consistent driver thus far in 2011. “I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about that stuff,” Johnson said of any naysayers. “If you’re watching and reading all the headlines, you can get caught up in a lot of stuff that just really isn’t important. “I’ve known in my heart the speed that we’ve had as a race team when we were in Chicago and unfortunately finished 10th because of fuel mileage. I know we were a heck of a lot better than 18th at New Hampshire but the damage to the car put us in 18th; Dover we were strong, and then (the win) here. “Again, I don’t pay attention to that stuff that’s out there — I live in

Throttle Up/Throttle Down

JIMMIE JOHNSON No surprise here. Johnson has consecutive finishes of second and first and has slid into third in the Chase standings, just four points out of the lead. JEFF GORDON The fourtime champ entered the Chase as one of the favorites, but runs of 24th, 12th and 34th have sunk his title hopes. The lone bright spot for Gordon in the playoffs? A fourth-place run in New Hampshire. Compiled and written by Matt Taliaferro. Follow Matt on Twitter @MattTaliaferro or email at

SPRINT CUP SERIES Race: Bank of America 500 Track: Charlotte Motor Speedway Location: Concord, N.C. When: Saturday, Oct. 15 TV: ABC (7:30 p.m. EST) Layout: 1.5-mile quad-oval Banking/Turns: 24 degrees Banking/Straightaways: 5 degrees May Winner: Kevin Harvick Crew Chief’s Take: “The 600 in May and the 500 in October present their own set of unique challenges. Varying track conditions and temperature shifts at each race add to the fact that each end of the track is significantly different from the cockpit. The challenge becomes adapting, and particularly in the case of the Coca-Cola 600, the races are really long there. The key is to survive the early stages, when the sun is out, and be in position to battle for the win at night. Horsepower is a necessity, as is engine durability, particularly in the 600, when the distance puts an added strain on the equipment.”

Here Comes Jimmie

egating him to a 34th-place finish at Kansas, there are now four drivers in a nearly one-race points hole. Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Newman and Denny Hamlin are all at least 43 points out of the Chase lead and, for all intents and purposes, out of the 2011 title hunt.

Attention race fans: Do not count Jimmie Johnson out of the Chase until he is mathematically eliminated (which probably will not happen). Thank you. That is all. Edwards’ slug-it-out third- and fifth-place finishes the last two weeks are the type of performances that championships are made of. Dare we call them “Johnson-esque?” Keep doubting. Yes, this ranking may seem high, but Keselowski has averaged a 5.8-place finish since the Brickyard 400 in late July. Pressure just doesn’t seem to affect the kid. It’s hard to proclaim that the driver sitting second in the point standings (by one point, no less) is flying under the radar, but the argument could be made for Harvick. Consecutive runs of sixth, fifth and fourth find Kenseth right in the middle of this fight. He’s already used his mulligan in a 21st-place, fuel-mileage run gone bad in Chicago, though. Smoke somehow salvaged a Chase-saving 15th-place run in Kansas, but his 25th the week prior will be the one that bites him. Not out yet, but like Kenseth, out of mulligans. Despite reasonable finishes of 11th, sixth and 11th (offset by a 22nd) in the Chase, it feels like Kyle and the boys have quietly disappeared once again in the playoffs. All the guys on this list have Kurt to thank for poking the sleeping dog, as Jimmie Johnson is once again proving that he’s the one getting in others’ heads — not vice versa. Gordon and the 24 team could still post a win and some nice numbers going forward, but at 47 points out, it’s likely they’ll go into R&D mode in preparation for 2012. It seems Bowyer’s performance has improved since it became clear to him where he’ll be driving next year, as evidenced by three runs of eighth or better in the last four races. Probably should be ranked higher after four straight top 15s, but it’s hard to trust the organization. The fact is, on a day when fuel mileage stays out of the equation, the 88 is a 12th- to 16-place car. It’s hard to pin this team down. They’re as capable — and likely — of running third as they are 27th. Consecutive ninth-place runs here. Credit him for continuing to run hard when others may not be. His drop in performance during the Chase speaks to others dogging it late in the regular season. AJ Allmendinger, Denny Hamlin, Mark Martin, David Ragan, Martin Truex Jr.

my little world, and I know what my team is capable of. We showed today what we’re capable of when we’re all performing at the top of our game, and hopefully we can do that for six more weeks.” The praise Johnson heaped on his team was well deserved. His pit crew — at times the Achilles heel of the operation and Knaus’ target for multiple changes — was spot on throughout the day, maintaining allimportant track position. The event came down to a greenwhite-checker restart — NASCAR’s version of overtime — when Johnson’s teammate, Jeff Gordon, suffered a blown engine. The field was bunched up for what would be the deciding three laps, and Johnson wasted no time in disposing of second-place (and eventual runner-up) Kasey Kahne, on the restart and cruised to a .548-second win. Brad Keselowski was third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Edwards. Edwards had an especially eventful day, realizing just two laps into the 272-lap affair that he and crew chief Bob Osborne had missed the setup. His No. 99 team diligently


The worst kept secret in NASCAR was such a bad secret that it was considered common knowledge. So when Michael Waltrip Racing called a press conference at Kansas Speedway on Friday, it was to no one’s surprise that it was to announce the signing of Clint Bowyer to the team in 2012. Bowyer brings 5-Hour Energy as a sponsor for 24 races to the organization, where he will pilot the No. 15 Toyota for the next three seasons. In fine NASCAR press conference form, there were compliments, glad-handing and gushing galore. “This has been a very long summer, but I think for everyone involved, the best decision was made to be at Michael Waltrip Racing,” Bowyer said. “I am a big fan of 5-Hour Energy so I was really happy when they approached me about putting a deal together. “We were diligent in working through our options and finally

went to work adjusting his Ford, and although they lost a lap at one point, screamed through the field late to record the top-5 finish. It was the type of effort that wins championships, though Edwards was more apt to shrug it off as good old-fashioned racing luck. “We’re lucky because we had to have luck go our way,” he said. “We had two cautions that were timed perfectly, so that was a big deal. But we’ve messed up enough in the past that I’m pretty proud of our ability to just kind of take our bad days and just keep plugging along. It’s kind of a little test when you go through something like this to see if somebody melts down or if you can kind of keep going through it, and I’m glad it worked out today, but there was a lot of luck involved, as well.” Kevin Harvick, who sits second in the point standings, was sixth. Last week’s winner, Kurt Busch, was 13th, now 16 points out of the Chase lead. Gordon, whose blown engine with three laps remaining brought out the final caution, finished 34th and fell a whopping 47 points back in the standings with six races remaining.

found the right fit. I have been so impressed with what’s going on at MWR. Then when the 5-Hour Energy executives met with Michael and his people, we knew this was going to be our home.” When asked why Bowyer and 5-Hour Energy could not put together an agreement to remain at Richard Childress Racing — his current team — Bowyer’s answer was short: “We talked to Richard about it, but still couldn’t put a deal together. At that point I said, ‘OK, we’ll go somewhere else.’ That’s what ultimately led to leaving RCR. “It’s a shame. I owe a lot to Richard. I was in an auto shop in Kansas when he called me the first time. He changed my life, and I’ll always be grateful. But it was time to move on.” Bowyer joins David Reutimann and Martin Truex Jr. in the MWR stable. The organization has two Cup victories since it graduated to the Cup ranks in 2007, both by Reutimann. In six Cup Series seasons, Bowyer has four wins and three Chase appearances.

Classic Moments Charlotte Motor Speedway The first of David Pearson’s 105 wins comes in the second annual World 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in May 1961. Pearson, in his second year on the Grand National circuit, leads 225 laps in a John Masoni-owned Pontiac en route to the victory. Pearson owns a two-lap lead on the field when he blows a tire with one lap remaining and limps around to the start/finish line. Fireball Roberts finishes second. Ralph Earnhardt leads 75 laps in the middle stages of the race in a car owned by Cotton Owens, marking the most laps he leads in any single Grand National event. Tim Flock makes his 187th and final start in this race, after a Hall of Fame career during which he amasses 39 wins and 129 top 10s.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Hard to overlook Jimmie Johnson’s six wins in Charlotte. Pretty Solid Pick: Carl Edwards has zero Cup wins at CMS, but they’ve been doing everything a contender should be doing of late. Good Sleeper Pick: Joey Logano has four top 10s in five points-paying starts here. Runs on Seven Cylinders: Juan Pablo Montoya, with only one top 10 in Charlotte in nine starts. Insider Tip: If this comes down to fuel mileage — and it could — think Stewart, Earnhardt and Harvick, who’ve all stretched it this season.

his scout team for getting his number ones ready “There are some weeks when our scout team runs the offense, defense and special teams plays of our opponent,” he said. “They give us a great look. We have some nice battles on Tuesday and Wednesday, kids just getting after it. When you have some depth like we do, you’ve got kids that start on the defensive line, running on the scout team. And that creates some great battles.” Seth Guillozet, who has been outstanding since stepping in for the injured Ryan Humphreys, had an amazing game Friday, missing only one pass all night and throwing for four touchdowns. “There on the twoyard line, I called that pass play and he did a doubletake,” said Burgbacher. “He’s very poised in the pocket.

tremendously.” Humphreys did see action last week at wideout. He’s trying to come back from a shoulder injury suffered in the season opener at Minster. “We’re going to get him in there, but with the injury, he’s not able to throw, so it won’t be at quarterback,” said the coach. “But he’s been taking some reps, and we’re looking at him possibly helping out on defense and special teams.”

dropped Troy to 3-1. Sidney only has to defeat last-place Trotwood Saturday night at home to claim the outright title. It would be Sidney’s second straight North championship at 5-0, and its third North crown in the last four years. The lone goal of the

game came in the first half, when Taylor Rickert took a pass from Kaitlyn Wolfe, and finished it from about 18 yards out with 17:22 remaining in the first half. Troy’s best shot at tying the game up came on a direct kick with just two minutes to go in the game. But the shot sailed over the goal.

Wind turbine at Progressive CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians' ballpark is teaming up with the wind to draw power and build awareness for renewable energy. The Plain Dealer reports ( ) the Indians and Cleveland State University have announced plans to install an 18-foot-wide turbine by March atop the southeast corner of Progressive Field. The turbine's design resembles a corkscrew with four wheels on its outside. Ballpark assistant director of operations Brad Mohr says the turbine will generate about 40,000 kilowatt hours per year, roughly the amount of energy that would power four homes. The stadium uses about 17 million kilowatt hours a year.

Arizona gets ’15 Super Bowl

SDN Photo/Aaron Pollock

Houston youth teams advance The Houston Pee-Wee football teams both won twice over the weekend in postseason tournament play. The junior varsity beat Miami East 19-6 and Arcanum 13-6 to go to 8-0 on the year. The varsity won 33-15 over East and 36-0 over Arcanum to go to 5-3. In the top photo, Houston’s Alex Keller runs for big yardage as he’s being chased by Miami East’s Ryan Dinardo. On the right, Brayden Wiggins follows a good block by Ryan Cagle.

HOUSTON (AP) — Back to the desert, and back to Britain, for the NFL. The league awarded the 2015 Super Bowl to Arizona on Tuesday and also committed to playing r e g u l a r- s e a s o n games in Britain through 2016 — with more than one game a year likely. The first owners meeting since the lockout focused almost exclusively on big events, with the biggest of them all heading to the Phoenix area in four years. Arizona beat out Tampa, the only other candidate, on the second ballot. It was not a unique decision like the Super Bowls that will sandwich 2015. In '14, the league makes a frosty foray into the New York/New Jersey area for the first outdoor title game in a cold-weather site since the merger. And in 2016, the 50th Super Bowl will be, according to Goodell, “a significant event for us” and could wind up in Los Angeles.

UM fan proposes at OSU

SDN Photo/Aaron Pollock


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A University of Michigan football fan has proposed to his girlfriend on hostile territory: the field of archrival Ohio State. Johnny Wakefield paid $150 to use Ohio Stadium in Columbus Tuesday evening to pop the question to Abbey Zellers, a Buckeyes fan. She says she was in “total shock” when the proposal came, and she said yes right away. She grew up near Akron following Ohio State. The 27-year-old Wakefield works in central Ohio but picked up his admiration for the Michigan Wolverines from his parents, who are Detroit natives. Ohio State’s athletic department says it gets about five such proposal requests for the stadium each year.

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