Wall Street protesters avoid eviction BY MEGHAN BARR Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — AntiWall Street protesters exulted Friday after beating back a plan to clear them from the park they have occupied for the past month, saying the victory will embolden the movement across the U.S. and beyond. “We are going to piggy-back off the success of today, and it’s going to be bigger than we ever imagined,” said protester Daniel Zetah. The showdown in New York came as tensions were rising in several U.S. cities over the spreading protests, with several arrests and scattered clashes between demonstra-

tors and police. The owners of Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan had announced plans to temporarily evict the hundreds of protesters at 7 a.m. Friday so that the grounds could be power-washed. But the protesters feared it was a pretext to break up the demonstration, and they vowed to stand their ground, raising the prospect of clashes with police. Just minutes before the appointed hour, the word came down that the park’s owners, Brookfield Office Properties, had postponed the cleanup. A boisterous cheer went up among the demonstrators, whose numbers had swelled See PROTESTERS/Page 5A

NEW BREMEN — New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Growers Association holds the Pumpkinfest event each fall along the Miami-Erie Canal in New Bremen. The NBGPGA is well-known for creative ways to use its giant pumpkins to entertain Pumpkinfest attendees. Past festivals have featured 80-foot cranes dropping giant pumpkins on junk cars, pumpkin go-cart racing and giant pumpkin boat racing in the Miami-Erie Canal. Thanks to the notoriety they’ve received for baking a Guinness Book of World Record’s certified world’s largest pumpkin pie, they’ve attracted the attention of a national television audience. The New Bremen Pumpkinfest will be featured on a special program titled, “PumpkinPalooza,” on The Weather Channel. The program highlights the “Top 10 Craziest Things People Do With Pumpkins.” The show will air Monday at 9:30 p.m. While at Pumpkinfest, the film crew interviewed many food vendors, giant-pumpkin growers and festival attendees. The primary focus of the piece includes the giant pumpkin weigh-off and the Monster Truck Smash. Clips in the piece will include sights and sounds of Pumpkinfest and footage of the Pumpkin People in and around New Bremen. More information on the New Bremen Pumpkinfest can be found at www.growgiants.com. Keep on eye on the Pumpkinfest’s website for information about its 2010 attempt to break its own world record with a 20-foot pumpkin pie. Guinness is in the process of certifying that pie.

FOP leaders visit Ohio in union law ballot fight BY KANTELE FRANKO Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Leaders of the nation’s largest law enforcement union are visiting Ohio amid the ballot fight over the state’s collective bargaining overhaul, rallying members who hope to overturn the law that limits bargaining for more than 350,000 public workers. The national president and secretary of the politically influential Fraternal Order of Police are slated to be in Ohio this weekend to meet with FOP members lobbying against the law signed by Republican Gov. John Kasich in March. A third person from the FOP’s executive board is expected to visit Ohio later this month. Unlike Wisconsin’s law curbing union rights, the Ohio measure includes police and fireand their fighters, unions say a vote to repeal it would send a message to GOP lawmakers and leaders who have curbed collective bargaining rights in several states. “We’re concerned about the trend but we see Ohio as kind of the bellwether,” FOP Executive Director Jim Pasco said. “We see a real opportunity for public safety and the voting public to reject this effort to endanger public safety in order to make up for past fiscal mismanagement by elected officials.” The FOP has mustered its troops against measures targeting

Leaders of the nation’s largest law enforcement union are visiting Ohio this weekend amid the ballot fight over the state’s collective bargaining overhaul. union rights in Wisconsin and elsewhere, but its efforts in Ohio have reached a new level through canvassing and fundraising. Officials say the organization has contributed more money to the fight over the Ohio measure than to any state labor clash in its nearly century-long history, though they wouldn’t specify how much has been spent. The FOP represents more than 330,000 law enforcement officers, including about 25,000 in Ohio, where it has been active in the We Are coalition that Ohio fought to get the bargaining law on the fall ballot. Among other changes, the law bans public worker strikes and limits the collective bargaining abilities of

BRIEFS

Bill can go to voters COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The state Supreme Court says a bill setting new U.S. House districts in Ohio can be put before voters, despite efforts by Republicans to block a referendum. The court on Friday ordered Secretary of State Jon Husted to accept signatures submitted by Democrats seeking to get a repeal issue on the 2012 ballot. Senate Republicans appropriated funds to boards of elections in the bill, an effort to make the law effective immediately and block referendum. Bills including money for “current” government expenses can go into effect immediately, but the court ruled the appropriations in the redistricting bill don’t meet required criteria. Ohioans for Fair Districts, the group seeking referendum, says it will ask the court for another 90 days to collect signatures. A Husted spokesman says the decision throws a monkey wrench into filing deadlines to run for Congress.

teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees. Workers could negotiate on wages, but not on their pension or health care benefits. Kasich had characterized the law as a way to help the state plug a multibillion-dollar budget hole. Supporters contend it gives cashstrapped local governments more flexibility to manage budgets and control costs, aside from laying off workers, cutting services or raising taxes. A vote to keep the law would make it easier for cities to keep firefighters and police officers working, said Connie Wehrkamp, a spokesman for Building a Better Ohio, a Republicanand businessbacked group seeking

tells viewers, “If not for the firefighters, we wouldn’t have our Zoey today.” Building a Better Ohio, a group defending the law, recut the footage for its own commercial claiming the law will help, not hurt, firefighter staffing. The law signed in March bans public worker strikes and limits the collective bargaining rights of more than 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees. Workers could negotiate on wages, but not on their pension or health care benefits. Quinn told local TV stations on Friday that Building a Better Ohio was “stealing” her words and she demanded they take down the ad and apologize. So far, more than 30 stations have, said We Are Ohio spokeswoman Melissa Fazekas. Building a Better Ohio spokesman Jason Mauk said the group is inflating their number by adding stations that were never asked to air the spot. Mauk declined to comment further, saying it was policy not to discuss ad strategy. Fazekas said Quinn wasn’t paid to appear in the spot, or in a new one released Friday, in which Quinn bashes Building a Better Ohio for using her image without permission. Dale Bring, a lawyer for Building a Better Ohio, said the group had done nothing wrong.

voter approval of the law. But police and firefighters argue it could negatively affect public safety by restricting their ability to negotiate on issues such as staffing levels. The Ohio FOP, which has provided financial support and coveted endorsements for candidates from both major political parties, already has brandished its political clout in the collective bargaining fight. It withdrew an endorsement of the measure’s sponsor, GOP state Sen. Jones of Shannon Springboro. The political contribution arms of local and state FOP groups also have donated at least $3,250 to committees representing two Republicans who opposed the bill.

SALINAS, Calif. (AP) — A California producer of bagged salad mix is voluntarily recalling 2,100 cases distributed under store brands in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Iowa because of the potential that some packages may be contaminated with listeria. The lettuce was sold under the store brand names Hy-Vee salads and Giant Eagle’s “Farmers Market.” The lettuce has a “best if sold by” date of Oct. 14. River Ranch Fresh Foods of Salinas issued the recall after random tests indicated the presence of the listeria organism in bagged lettuce sold for the Giant Eagle chain. The company recalled all lettuce bagged on Sept. 27. No illnesses have been reported. Company president Bruce Knobeloch told The Associated Press that he is working with federal and state regulators to notify consumers. Consumers may contact the company at 1-800-7627708.

NATION/WORLD BRIEFLY New iPhone draws crowd NEW YORK (AP) — It wasn’t just the latest iPhone that drew people to Apple stores Friday. Many consumers waited in lines for hours — sometimes enduring chilly temperatures and overnight thunderstorms — to remember Steve Jobs, Apple’s visionary who died last week. The company’s first iPhone release since Jobs’ death turned into another tribute. Some customers even joked that the new model 4S stood “for Steve.” Tony Medina, a student from Manhattan, stood outside Apple’s flagship store on New York’s Fifth Avenue for nine hours, waiting through rain. He had originally planned to order the phone online but decided to join a crowd of about 200 people to honor Jobs.

Many ideas, little time WASHINGTON (AP) — Conservative senators are urging the debt-cutting supercommittee to raise the eligibility age for Medicare and require many retirees to pay more. The top Senate Republican on defense is endorsing some of President Barack Obama’s proposed benefit curbs for the military. Even farm state lawmakers are offering cuts to agriculture subsidies and food programs. Friday’s deadline for lawmakers to offer ideas to Congress’ bipartisan 12member panel brought out a flood of advice. Some lawmakers offered up sacred cows. Others just restated political talking points. Whether it will help the supercommittee make actual progress remains to be seen.

Court rules against law BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — In a blow to Alabama’s toughest-in-thenation immigration law, a federal appeals court sided with the Obama administration Friday when it blocked public schools from checking the immigration status of students. The decision from the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also said police can’t charge immigrants who are unable to prove their citizenship, but it let some of the law stand, giving supporters a partial victory. The decision was only temporary and a final ruling wasn’t expected for months, after judges can review more arguments.

OUT OF THE BLUE Rescuer of reptiles faces court action SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah transportation officials are trying to evict a reptile rescuer who’s using his rental home as a shelter for hundreds of animals. The Utah Department of Transportation filed papers against James Dix of West Valley City. The Deseret News of Salt Lake City reports Dix has more than 900 rescued animals at his home. The transportation department got involved because the home is in the path of a planned freeway called the Mountain View Corridor. It says that Dix was paid more than $18,000 to vacate, but has failed to meet deadlines. Court records show Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court has issued a summons for Dix. Dix told the Associated Press on Wednesday he has found a new place, but has been delayed by zoning problems.

Obama sending troops to aid Africa anti-insurgency BY MARK S. SMITH Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Intervening in a volatile and brutal crisis, President Barack Obama said Friday he has dispatched 100 U.S. troops to central Africa to support a years-long fight against a guerrilla group accused of horrific atrocities. Obama said they were sent to advise, not engage in combat, unless forced to defend themselves. In a letter to Congress, Obama said the troops will act as advisers in a long-running battle against the Lord’s Resistance Army, considered one of Africa’s most ruthless rebel groups, and help to hunt down its notorious leader, Joseph Kony. The first of the troops arrived in Uganda on Wednesday, the White House said, and others will be sent to South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. While the size of the U.S. footprint is small, Obama’s announcement represents a highly unusual intervention for the United States. Although some American troops are based in Djibouti and small groups of soldiers have been deployed to Somalia, the U.S. traditionally has been

reluctant to commit forces to help African nations put down insurgencies. It demonstrates the Obama administration’s escalating attention to and fears about security risks in Africa, including terror networks, piracy and unstable nations. The move was intended to show some engagement to lessen the impact of one of the worst protracted wars in Africa. Obama declared his decision to send troops as in keeping with the national security interests of the United States. The White House announced it in a low-key fashion, releasing the Obama notification and justification of the troop deployment that the president sent to congressional leaders. Pentagon officials said the bulk of the deployment will be of special operations troops, who will provide security and combat training to African units. The move raises the profile of U.S. involvement on the continent — and represents an apparent victory for administration officials who have argued for more robust intervention in humanitarian crises. The change in policy could reflect the long-standing concerns of a number of high-ranking Obama advisers left

scarred by the U.S. failure in the 1990s to intervene to stop the genocide in Rwanda and the belated action to finally halt the violence in Bosnia. For a current parallel, the Lord’s Resistance Army’s 24-year campaign of rebellion, rape and murder represents one of the world’s worst human rights crises today. “This case is somewhat exceptional,” said Richard Downie, an Africa expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. “There are few more clear-cut cases of evil in the world today than the Lord’s Resistance Army.” Downie noted that the U.S. has once before, at the end of 2008, sent advisers and logistical backup to help the Ugandan army root out the LRA. Intelligence leaks, poor cooperation between the Ugandan and other African armies, and bad weather hampered the operation. Since then, nearly 400,000 people in northern Congo have been displaced due to the LRA’s activity, he said. Downie cautioned that the operation shouldn’t be viewed as short-term. Even if the LRA is disbanded quickly, the effects of years of war will require lengthy rehabilitation efforts.

Romney, Perry top fundraisers BY JACK GILLUM Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans Mitt Romney and Rick Perry are neck and neck in filling their presidential campaign coffers after a summer of strong fundraising amid voter anger over jobs and the economy. They’re pulling in big bucks — $30 million combined — though not nearly as big as the man they hope to replace in the White House. Former Massachusetts Gov. Romney on Friday reported roughly $14 million in contributions during the July-September period and had nearly $15 million on hand. Texas Gov. Perry, who briefly surged to the top of the Republican presidential field this summer, has roughly the same in the bank, having raised about $17 million during the first few weeks of his campaign. Still, the GOP candidates’ fundraising efforts lag behind the man whose job they want: President Barack Obama raised more than $70 million for his re-election and the Democratic Party — $42.8 million for his own campaign and $27.3 million for the Democratic National Committee. Not counting major support from GOP-leaning super PACs, the virtual tie between Romney and Perry for cash on hand means the two have similar amounts to spend on ads and travel just months before heading into key primary states. Obama can save most of his $70 million for next year because he does not face a primary opponent. Filings released late Friday show a broad base of support for Romney, with major contributions from Oregon to New York. The donations include big checks from GOP stalwarts, such as $5,000 from the New Republican Majority Fund, a political action committee affiliated with former Mississippi Sen. Trent Lott.

A MAN affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street protests tackles a police officer during a march towards Wall Street in New York on Friday. The official cleanup of a plaza in lower Manhattan where protesters have been camped out for a month was postponed early Friday, sending up cheers from a crowd that had scrambled to scrub the park on its own out of fear the effort was merely a pretext to evict them.

PROTESTORS to about 2,000 before daybreak in response to a call for help in fending off the police. In a statement, Brookfield said it decided to delay the cleaning “for a short period of time” at the request of “a number of local political leaders.” It gave no details. State Sen. Daniel Squadron, a Democrat who represents lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, said he had conversations late into the night urging Brookfield’s CEO to wait. “The stakeholders must come together to find a solution that respects the protesters’ fundamental rights, while addressing the legitimate quality-of-life concerns in this growing residential neighborhood,” Squadron said in a statement. Brookfield said it would negotiate with protesters about how the park may be used. But it was unclear when those discussions would occur. Over the past month, the protest against corporate greed and economic inequality has spread to cities across

the U.S. and around the world. Several demonstrations are planned this weekend in the U.S., Canada and Europe, as well as in Asia and Africa. In Denver, police in riot gear herded hundreds of protesters away from the Colorado state Capitol early Friday, arresting about two dozen people and dismantling their encampment. In Trenton, N.J., protesters were ordered to remove tents near a war memorial. San Diego police used pepper spray to break up a human chain formed around a tent by antiWall Street demonstrators. In New York City, police arrested 15 people, including protesters who obstructed traffic by standing or sitting in the street and others who turned over trash baskets and hurled bottles. A deputy inspector was sprayed in the face with an unknown liquid. In one case, an observer with the National Lawyers Guild who was marching with the group refused to move off the street for police, and the

From Page 1 tip of his foot was run over by an officer’s scooter. He fell to the ground screaming and writhing and kicked over the scooter before police flipped him over and arrested him. And a video posted online showed a police officer punching a protester in the side of the head on a crowded street. Police said the altercation occurred after the man tried to elbow the officer in the face and other people in the crowd jumped on the officer, who was sprayed with a liquid coming from the man’s direction. Police said the man, who escaped and is wanted for attempted assault on an officer, later said in an online interview he’s HIV positive and the officer should be tested medically. Organizers in Des Moines, Iowa, warned of a possible “big conflict” Friday night after the state denied their permit to continue overnight protests at the Capitol. Though the park in New York is privately owned, it is required to be open to the public 24 hours per day.

Retail sales rose strongly in September BY MARTIN CRUTSINGER Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumers stepped up their spending on retail goods in September, a hopeful sign for the sluggish economy. They spent more on autos, clothing and furniture last month to boost retail sales 1.1 percent, the Commerce Department said Friday. It was the largest gain in seven months. Auto sales rose 3.6 percent to drive the overall increase. Still, excluding that category,

sales gained a solid 0.6 percent. The government also revised the August figures to show a 0.3 percent increase, up from its initial report of no gain. Stocks rose after the release of the report, which is the government’s first look at consumer spending each month. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 87 points in afternoon trading. Broader indexes also rose. A separate Commerce report showed that businesses added to their stockpiles for a 20th consecutive month in August while sales rose for a third straight month. The increase

suggests businesses were confident enough in the economy to keep stocking their shelves. Stronger consumer spending could help tamp down concerns that the economy is at risk of a recession. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. The increase “shows that households are not completely down and out,” said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economists for Capital Economics. Dales said the data correspond with an annual growth rate of 2 percent for consumer spending growth in the July-September quarter.

Dales cautioned that weak hiring will likely prevent consumers from spending at this rate on a month-to-month basis. “Sales growth is unlikely to remain this strong,” he said. “So although a recession has become less likely, households still can’t be relied on to drag the US economy out of its continued malaise.” The jump in retail sales prompted some economists to boost their growth forecast for the July-September quarter. Dean Maki at Barclays Capital Research said his group raised its forecast to 2.5 percent, up from 2 percent.

Downtown Lima Community bank protests fees, pays customers to use debit cards plans purse bingo URBANA — The Peoples Savings Bank of Urbana is initiating a creative protest to call attention to debit card fees. Over the next three months, the bank will pay customers $5 a month per account for using their debit card in each statement period. The objective is to call attention to recent actions of large megabanks and highlight the advantages community banks offer. “Our customers voiced concerns over newly-initiated debit card fees by large banks and asked if we were going down the same path,” said Brice Kadel, bank president. “Community banks including The Peoples Savings Bank are not in agreement with these fees and practices. To demonstrate opposition to these fees and the important advantages of community banks over large megabanks, we chose to do something fundamentally different. Paying our customers to

use our debit cards is the kind of symbolic gesture that eliminates their fears.” During November, The Peoples Savings Bank will credit $5 to every customer account that utilizes one or more signature-based TPSB debit card transactions during the statement period. The credit may also be earned in December and January under the same terms, totaling a maximum of $15 to every qualifying account. After Jan. 31, customers will continue to enjoy no fee for point-ofsale debit card transactions. With as few as three debit card payment transactions during the offer period, Kadel expects a positive response and is encouraging the bank’s customers to use TPSB debit cards as often as they choose. Some banks have made recent headlines by announcing new monthly fees on customers using their debit

cards to make purchase transactions. The news has been met with opposition by customers who enjoyed the use of debit cards without prior fees or surcharges. In a recent TIME-Moneyland poll of 1,000 respondents affected by the new fees, roughly 75 percent indicated they would switch banks to avoid the monthly surcharges. According to JD Power and Associates, almost twothirds follow through. Some banks are also altering account terms by raising minimum balances to further increase “gotcha” fees. Dr. Charles S. Wingfield, chairman of the board at The Peoples Savings Bank, sees these business practices as detrimental to independent local banks and the communities they serve. “The public image of many fine banking institutions is being questioned by the actions of a few,” Wingfield said. “We work diligently to differentiate The Peoples Sav-

ings Bank from the competition. The task is never-ending due to the media attention paid to large financial conglomerates. As a community bank that knows our customers as well as their children and grandchildren, we are doing business with our friends and neighbors. Strong banking relationships are about trust and respect — not about nickel-and-diming our customers to death.” “Our goal is to raise awareness and remind our customers of how community banks do business,” Kadel said. “We offer computer banking, electronic billpay, telephone banking, and other services like the megabanks — but in a manner that demonstrates a personal touch. While some banks received bailouts, our founding principles have served the local communities in Champaign County for 119 years with sound values and financial practices.”

Natural gas prices remain low DAYTON — A surge of abundant, domestic natural gas supply over the past few years has reportedly stabilized and lowered natural gas prices, which has helped natural gas continue to be the most cost-effective energy source for home heating. Last winter, west central Ohio customers of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio (Vectren) who heated their homes with natural gas reportedly paid more than $1,000 less than those who used propane to heat their homes and $200 to $1,000 less than those who heated with electricity.

Heating Source Natural gas furnace Natural gas furnace (high-efficiency model) Electric furnace Electric heat pump Propane furnace It was reported that the average Vectren customer paid $70 to $80 per month during the months of November through March for a total of $345 to $400 depending upon the efficiency of the gas furnace. This amount does not include costs for those who use Vectren natural gas

Crack in concrete on nuclear plant studied OAK HARBOR (AP) — Contractors replacing the cracked reactor head at a northern Ohio nuclear plant have discovered a small crack in the thick concrete on the outside of the reactor’s containment building. Federal regulators and the plant’s owner are reviewing whether the crack is a serious issue for the Davis-Besse (BEH'-see) plant outside Toledo. Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokeswoman Viktoria Mytling

tells The Plain Dealer of C l e v e l a n d (http://bit.ly/rhUiAH ) the matter will need to be resolved before the reactor is restarted. Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp. shut down the plant almost two weeks ago so the new 82-ton reactor head could be installed. The building's concrete shell 2 ½ feet deep is meant to protect the reactor from tornado debris, an aircraft of anything else that might hit it from outside.

in natural gas costs, which are passed through to customers on a dollar-for-dollar basis, remaining at levels not seen since 2001. Furthermore, forecasts show prices remaining relatively stable for years to come. “A few years ago, we were seeing gas priced at $1 to $1.20 per therm, and now, prices are in the 45- to 50-cent range,” said Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio President Colleen Ryan. “As such, bills have dropped as much as 35 percent over the past three years, which has undoubtedly been welcomed news for customers.” Home heating costs will vary by customer depending on the size and age of the home, the age and efficiency rating of the furnace, thermostat settings and levels of insulation.

Hahn wins BBBS Minster family serve as March of Dimes ambassadors Corvette raffle MINSTER — Marie Carity says the March of Dimes does as much for moms as it does for their babies. Carity and her family know, as a result of firsthand experience, the work of the March of Dimes. It was more than three years ago when they met with the birth of first child Ruth Ann to Marie and husband Brent Carity, of Minster. Born at 26 weeks and four days, Ruth Ann weighed 1 pound, 11.5 ounces and was 13.5 inches long. She was in the neonatal intensive care unit at Miami Valley Hospital for the first 107 days of her life. On her release, Ruth Ann was accompanied by a monitor and oxygen, which she used for another six months. Today, Ruth Ann is a busy little girl. “Everything is fine,” Marie Carity said. “Although Ruth was born really little and born early, you would not know that at all.” After a second preg-

In a third pregnancy, Marie followed recommendations of her doctor and the March of Dimes, taking daily shots, calcium and low dose aspirin. Information used by the doctors was the result of research conducted by the March of Dimes, Carity said. The Caritys’ son, Cole, born full-term was

healthy in August 2010. “The March of Dimes helps babies, but it also helps mommies. To have a healthy baby you have to have a healthy mommy,” said Marie Carity, the agricultural e d u c a t i o n instructor/FFA adviser at Miami East High School in Casstown. Husband Brent works at Precision Strip in Minster. The Carity family this year is serving as the Miami County March of

Dimes Ambassador Family. Marie’s sister has helped with March of Dimes fundraising activities for a number of years. The organization’s activities include the annual Miami County Signature Chefs Auction. Marie’s FFA students from Miami East will help with the fundraiser, supporting the March of Dimes as they have supported her, Marie Carity said. She credited family, friends and the March of Dimes for helping the Carity family thrive and grow. “I feel so blessed,” she said. The Miami County Signature Chefs Auction will be held Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Troy Country Club. Primary sponsors include Aircrafters, Inc.; Hobart; Traulsen; and Upper Valley Medical Center.

Health classes host Auglaize Industries visitors for disability awareness NEW BREMEN — Students in Barb Hamberg’s sixth- and seventh-grade health classes as McBroom Junior High School in St. Marys rolled out the red carpet for visitors from Auglaize Industries on Oct. 5. Recreation coordinator Penni Carroll accompanied Mick Jaynes and Annette Hines for their annual disability awareness presentation to McBroom students. Students from five different classes of sixthand seventh-graders engaged in conversation with Hines and Jaynes who shared their life experiences of growing up with developmental dis-

abilities. Both are employed at Auglaize Industries where they perform a variety of light assembly and packaging jobs, and earn a paycheck every two weeks. Hamberg’s health classes are currently discussing personal relationships and the responsibilities of friendship. Hines recalled a challenging childhood of being teased and bullied by classmates. She reported she has accomplished much to overcome her childhood frustrations by becoming employed as a bus aide for infants and a member of the safety committee at her workplace. She is

also proud that she has gained some level of independence by living in her own home with a roommate, being able to pay rent, caring for her home and shopping on her own. During Hines’ presentation, a young female student complimented Hines, stating she was as a “beautiful and successful” person. Jaynes, a resident of Heritage Manor in Minster, has many challenges of his own. Blind since birth, he is able to perform a variety of assembly and packaging jobs at Auglaize Industries and can maneuver throughout the workshop facility independ-

ently with the use of a cane. Through his love of the radio, Jaynes is a virtual database of music trivia of the past 50 years and enjoys singing oldies whenever he talks to students. He entertained classes with a variety of tunes that included country singer Mark Wills’ “Don’t Laugh at Me.” The purpose of the disability awareness presentations is to share information about the lives of people with disabilities and to encourage inclusion and acceptance of students and adults with disabilities in schools and the community.

(Bonus!) GEMINI BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Oct. 17, 2011 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be reasonable today, and don’t make promises you can’t keep, especially to partners and close friends. You’re tempted to go overboard. (You know who you are.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Try to be grounded and realistic about important decisions at work. You might miss something by glossing over details. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)

(May 21 to June 20) Discussions with others might promote new approaches to raising children or better ways to play sports, or new ideas about vacations for yourself and others. You’re so resourceful today! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is the perfect day to explore improvements at home, especially related to plumbing or garbage areas. You have the ability and desire to clean up any kind of mess. (Great!) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You’re certainly persuasive today! This is a wonderful day for those of you who sell, market, teach, act or need to convince anybody of anything. Yowsers!

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Many of you will see new ways of earning money today, or you might find a better job. You also might see new applications and uses for something you already own. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’re very powerful in all your communication today. You might be a teacher to someone, or vice versa; you might meet a teacher. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a fabulous day for research of any kind. You won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. (You’re like a dog with a bone.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Discussions with others, especially in a group setting, will be powerful. If you want to introduce ideas, others will very likely endorse them. (That’s how convincing you are.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Bosses and people in authority will listen to you today, because you’re coming on like gangbusters. That’s OK. You mean what you say, and you say what you mean.

You want to explore the subtext of things. PISCES

YOU BORN TODAY You’re practical and hardworking. You’re never really casual about anything. You give everything serious thought. As might be expected, you are very fair and just. You rely on common sense. You also believe in walking your talk. This is why others respect you so much. Work hard to build or construct something important this year. Your rewards soon will follow. Birthdate of: Tim Robbins, actor/musician; Angela Lansbury, actress; John Mayer, singer/songwriter.

This is a fun, playful today. Nevertheless, parents should be very mindful of children. Things could get out of hand. Definitely keep an eye on little ones. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family discussions might mushroom into something you least expect. Don’t go along just to be a nice guy. If something seems to be too much, say it is! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It’s easy to exaggerate today or think you can handle more than you actually can. Slow down and take it easy, and make sure you know what you’re doing. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful with your fi-

nances today. You might be tempted to spend too much money or buy something that’s too expensive or give something away. (You don’t want later regrets.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a wonderful, upbeat, fun-loving day. Enjoy good times with others. You feel unusually confident and, dare we say, cocky? (We did.) Enjoy this day! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Quite likely, you will have a warm feeling in your tummy because you’re generous to someone today. You see how an act of kindness has its own rewards. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

In group discussions, don’t volunteer for anything today. You might later regret it! It’s really easy to overshoot the mark or take on more than you can handle. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) If you agree to deadlines with bosses and VIPs, give yourself a lot of leeway. Don’t make promises or estimates that will be hard to keep. (Things might look rosier than they really are.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Travel plans look inviting! You’re excited about what awaits you. Others might be equally excited about school or learning something new. (It’s nice when life is exciting.) PISCES

(Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t give away the farm today. Make sure you defend your best interest if you are deciding how to share something or divide an inheritance. Don’t be casual. YOU BORN TODAY You are both easygoing, gentle and stable, and a reckless daredevil. You don’t like to hold yourself back. In part, this is because you’re confident! And you also know you’ll invariably land on your feet because you’re a survivor. (And a risktaker!) A major change might take place this year, perhaps something as significant as around 2003. Birthdate of: Rick Mercer, TV host; Rita Hayworth, actress/dancer; Ziggy Marley, musician.

State group honors Lehman teachers The Ohio Academy of Science has announced the selection of 48 Ohio schools and 265 teachers to receive Governor’s Thomas Edison Awards for Excellence in Science, Technology, Engiand neering Mathematics (STEM) Education for their accomplishments during the 2010-11 school year. Each teacher will receive a special Governor’s Award certificate. For the 22nd consecutive year, Lehman Catholic High School is being recognized as one of the top schools in Ohio. Science teachers from Lehman Catholic who are receiving individual awards are Tracy Hall, Alan Schulze and Sister Ginny Scherer. The Ohio Academy of

Science initiated this educational partnership program in cooperation with the office of the governor and the Technology Division of the Ohio Department of Development to recognize schools and teachers who stimulate student scientific and technological research and extend STEM education opportunities beyond traditional classroom activities. The Technol-

ogy Division of the Ohio DOD has supported this program since 1985 by grants to the Ohio Academy Scherer of Science. “These schools are engaged in project-basic curricula, the central element of any STEM education program,” said Dr. Lynn E. Elfner, the academy’s CEO. “Receiving the Governor’s Thomas Edison Award for Excellence sends a clear signal that these schools and teachers value student-originated, inquiry-based science and technology education as envisioned for the Next-Generation

Science Education Standards being developed nationally. Whole new worlds of opportunities open up to students when they complete research or technological design projects.” To receive the award, schools must conduct a local science fair with 20 or more students, qualify one or more of these students for one of the academy’s 15 district science days, have students participate in at least one more youth science opportunity beyond the classroom such as State Science Day, visits to museums, mentorship programs and extended field trips, and convince external reviewers from business and industry, government and academia how and to what ex-

Anyone who donated on or before Aug. 23 is eligible to donate Tuesday. A special Halloween-themed black T-shirt will be available to all registered donors. October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Cancer patients are the No. 1 consumer of blood, often needing blood during their course of treatment.

Donors are encouraged to sign up for a donation time with Community Blood Center’s online appointment website at www.donortime.com or donors can schedule with Pleiman at 2953100. Walk-ins are always welcome as the schedule permits. Recent blood drives were held as follows: • On Sept. 27 the Palazzo in Botkins was the site for a community blood drive sponsored by the Botkins High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of

tent the school’s program met the academy’s definition of STEM education. “We go above and beyond the scope of the criteria for the award,” said Scherer, chairwoman of the Lehman Science Department. “Besides our annual science fair, we have a variety of extracurricular science exfor our periences students, including competitive teams for Science Olympiad, TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science) and Envirothon.” Over the last few years, Lehman has also been involved in the Ohio Energy Project. The Ohio Energy Project utilizes high school students to teach younger students about alternative sources of energy through hands-on learning. “Not only do we have the extracurricular science experience, but our curriculum includes AP and Dual Enrollment science classes. Our science program is very broad. Essentially we do it all,” said Scherer, who has been the force behind the Lehman Sci-

ence Department since 1988. “None of this happens without a lot of carteachers and ing volunteers. Many people from the community and Lehman Alumni are also involved in Lehman science activities, serving as coaches for the Science Olympiad team and helping to judge projects at the school science fair.” The Ohio Academy of Science strives to be the leading organization in Ohio dedicated to fostering curiosity, discovery, and innovation among Ohio’s students. The academy aims to unite all who value education, science, engineering, technology and their applications to benefit society. STEM education is both the mastery and integration science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for all preK-12 students. It incorporates scientific inquiry and technological design through studentfocused, project-based curricula to develop skills of communication, teamwork/collaboration, creativity/innovation, critical thinking and problem solving.

Township trustees approve paving contract LOCKINGTON — During their Sept. 22 meeting, Washington Township Trustees approved a $9,502 contract with Tycon Paving Inc. for crack-sealing Patterson-Halpin Road from Fessler-Buxton Road to the railroad overpass bridge. It was reported chipand-seal work has been completed on Lehman, Schenk, Taylor and Wright roads and Smal-

ley Road has been graded. Ditch work is needed along Kuther Road, near the Miami River Road bridge, where water has rushed across the road again. The sewer line in Arrowhead Subdivision has been cleaned and strange items, including a steering wheel and toilet seat, were found. RK Hydro Vacuum performed the work at a cost of $1,462.50.

William Huffman reported the hillside at the corner of Hughes and Patterson-Halpin roads has been cut back and Randy Schwable said Jason Way and the road through Beechwood Cemetery have been paved and sealed. Zoning enforcement officer Gary Vondenhuevel reported Louis Butt has been issued a building permit for a 34-by-30-foot pole barn.

City board OKs variance for building under construction BY TOM BARNETT tbarnett@sdnccg.com During a specialcalled meeting recently, Sidney’s Zoning Board of Appeals granted J. Fergus Inc., of Lewis Center, a variance for reduced rear- and side-yard setback for a new building at 1510 Michigan St. Barbara Dulworth, community services director, told the board that it was discovered the

foundation of the property, where an Advanced Auto Parts retail store is under construction, had been skewed so portions of walls encroach into its side and rear yards. “Side-yard encroachment is 3 inches with rear-yard encroachment of 4 inches” she reported. Developer John Fergus II apologized to the board Thursday for the need to seek a second variance for the property,

proved a variance to reduce the property’s rearyard setback to 18 feet, 8 inches, and the side-yard setback to 9 feet, 9 inches, noting the lot’s unusual shape or size creates exceptional circumstances and conditions that do not apply generally to other lots in the vicinity. The property is located in the city’s B-2 community business district.

saying the problem was created by a human error on the part of the surveyor that wasn’t discovered until after footers had been poured. A literal enforcement of zoning code setback provisions would mean completed work would have to be torn out and materials refabricated, he explained. “I assure you the encroachment was not intentional.” The appeals board ap-

Man finds giant puffball BY JENNIFER BUMGARNER jbumgarner@sdnccg.com A gigantic puffball was found on North Kuther Road recently. John Richards, 90, of Sidney, found the puffball at the McClure Cemetery on North Kuther Road. Richards started taking care of the cemetery in 1985. “I started mowing the grass and put the stones back in place,” said Richards. “I’ve never found a puffball like this at the cemetery before.” Richards plans on slicing the huge puffball into smaller slices and frying it but worries “the pieces may not all fit in the pan.”

‘Medicare Checkup’ event set in Sidney ing their health care and prescription drug needs and pairing them with the most suitable coverage, and OSHIIP can assist in that process.” OSHIIP has been Medicare’s designated educational program in Ohio for nearly 20 years for beneficiaries, family members, and health care professionals. In addition to the Medicare Check-up events, people can call OSHIIP at (800) 686-1578 with questions and for enrollment assistance, and visit www.insurance.ohio.gov for a list of plans (to be announced by Medicare in October), answers to frequently asked questions, financial assistance information, and checkup events organized by county. From today through Dec. 7, beneficiaries can select one of several health coverage options: 1. Original Medicare paired with a stand-alone Part D prescription drug

plan and/or a Medicare Supplement plan. 2. A Medicare Advantage Plan, which provides comprehensive health benefits including drug coverage. 3. Determine if their existing coverage will meet their health insurance needs for the upcoming year. When reviewing plan options, Ohioans should keep three important factors in mind: convenience, cost and coverage. It’s important to consider the convenience of being able to use pharmacies near where you work or live, to take into account all outof-pocket expenses, and ensure a plan’s covered drug list includes your prescriptions. Also, beneficiaries should involve a trusted advisor, like a family member or close friend, to help with comparing plans. At the checkup events, beneficiaries can learn about recent changes

such as the new Medicare deductibles, co-pay, and coinsurance amounts; Medicare Advantage and Part D plan options for 2012; and also about financial assistance programs. On-site coverage enrollment will start at most events. Attendees should bring their prescription drugs list with dosages and preferred pharmacy, and information on pension, Veteran’s Administration (VA) or other medical care benefits they receive. Taylor also asks Ohioans to watch for predatory sales practices during annual enrollment. Insurance agents are prohibited from using high pressure sales tactics, conducting door-to-door sales for Medicare Advantage plans, and representing themselves as being from Medicare. If you feel victimized, get an agent’s business card, or as much information as possible, and call the De-

partment’s fraud and enforcement hotline at (800) 686-1527. Those with Medicare questions and in need of enrollment assistance, including financial assistance, can call OSHIIP at

(800) 686-1578, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., or Medicare at (800) MEDICARE (1-800633-4227), 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Information is also available at www.medicare.gov.

Ohio Lt. Gov. and Department of Insurance Director Mary Taylor has announced the department’s Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP) will hold a free “Medicare Checkup” event in Shelby County at the Sidney-Shelby Senior Center, 304 S. West Ave., Monday at 10 a.m. The event coincides with Medicare’s annual election period, which has changed and now runs today to Dec. 7. The session is intended to help people review changes to Medicare and determine their best coverage option for 2012. “It’s important that beneficiaries are aware that the Medicare annual enrollment period begins one month earlier and ends three weeks earlier than previous years,” Taylor said. “Now is the time for Ohioans with Medicare to start review-

This ercise program of con- requires learning what a stant repetition of the repetition maximum is. same exercises done in The RM is the amount of

weight you can lift one time only. It determines what amount of weight you begin with and the weight you add each week. In the first week, lift weights that are 65 percent of your repetition maximum. Do eight to 10 consecutive lifts — known as repetitions. In the second week, increase the weight to 70 percent of your RM and decrease the reps. By the sixth week, you are lifting 85 percent of your RM but doing only five reps. You don’t have to follow this plan slavishly. Adjust it to your capabilities. The same approach is taken to a running program with a six-week schedule of gradual progression to longer distances and longer times. After six weeks, take a

week off before you enter another six-week cycle. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have what our trainer calls turf toe. All I know is my big toe hurts. How long will I be out of action? — R.B. ANSWER: Turf toe is the injury occurring when the big toe is bent upward past its normal range of motion. The base of the toe is swollen and may be red and painful. It’s a ligament strain. Ligament fibers have been torn. For a minor strain, two or three weeks are all that’s needed to get back in action. For a major strain, it can take four months to get back into action. It might even require surgery. You should have a doctor grade the severity of the strain.

While

your reason for wanting to attend is perfectly logical, Dorothy isn’t thinking rationally and will probably feel abandoned all over again. If you’re willing to put up with the drama that’s sure to follow, attend the wedding — and here’s how the rest of the scenario will play out: You will continue to be friendly with Dan and his new wife and socialize with them — and Dorothy will cut herself off and feel even more isolated, alone and angry. You have described someone who NEEDS the counseling she’s receiving, and I sincerely hope it works for her. DEAR ABBY: Every weekend when I do laundry — a chore I HATE — my husband has left paper, coins, cigarette lighters, etc. in the pockets of his clothing. Some-

times the items end up getting destroyed in the washing machine. Then he gets upset with me because more than once important papers have been ruined. He says that since I’m doing the laundry I should check the pockets and remove all items before washing the clothes. I say that because I take the time to do the laundry, he should remove the items himself. Abby, who is right? — POCKETS FULL OF TROUBLE DEAR POCKETS: You’re both right. He should check his pockets before putting his clothes into the hamper, and you should make sure there’s nothing in them before putting them into the machine. And because marriage is a partnership, how about sharing the chore of doing the laundry by alternating each week (or month)?

Oct. 15, 1911 Berte Foote of Anna, spent the past few months visiting near Athens, Ala. He made the entire trip on his motorcycle and had a very nice trip. When the road was good he could average 100 miles a day. There was one place in Kentucky where he had extremely bad road and he had to push his loaded motorcycle. It took him all day to cover this sevenmile stretch. He spent $1.25 for gasoline and 35 cents for repairs. ––––– Among those who went to Dayton today to attend the Knight Templars Concave held in that city were the following: Mr. and Mrs. Robinson, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Frazier, Mr. and Mrs. Jones, Mr. and Mrs. John Mumford, James Millikin, C. R. Bleakney, W.J. Emmons, D.M. Puden, W.P. Collier, A.J. Hess, C.E. Betts, John Shearer, Bert Key, E.M. Bull, E.Z. Laughlin, S.M. Wagoner,and J.S. Crozier .They went to Dayton by special car over the Western Ohio and were accompanied by the Anna Band. ––––– Johnston Dickensheets was at Springfield last evening attending the Billy Sunday meetings. He played with the Piqua Band which acted as an escort for a large delegation of Piqua people that went to that city to hear Billy Sunday. He reports the tabernacle there holds 6,000 people and it was packed to capacity.

75 years Oct. 15, 1936 Members of city council at an informal meeting last evening heard a report of the recent inspection of the city fire protection made by the Ohio Inspection Bureau. It was pointed out by Mr. Manning, representing the bureau that Sidney was in Classification Six. Among things that brought this about, were the facts that the fire department was undermanned and that better fire protection is needed in the northwest area of the city. ––––– Adolph Thoma this afternoon closed a contract for the three balloon ascensions next week in connection with the Merchants’ Fall Festival and Halloween celebration. The ascensions, one each on three afternoons, will be made by a lady balloonist and will include a double drop parachute leap with each ascension, something that has never been seen in Sidney.

50 years Oct. 15, 1961 Leo J. McFarland, president and general manager of the Dixie Oil Co., was recently honored by the Sinclair Refining Co. for his 40 years association with that organization. McFarland, who is Shelby County distributor for Sinclair, was accorded the honor at a luncheon held in the Commodore Perry Hotel in Toledo. On that occasion, which came

as a complete surprise to him, he was presented with a 40-year plaque and a wrist watch. ––––– Plans were completed today for the ribbon-cutting dedication at 11 a.m. next Monday of the widening section of State 29 from Park Street in Sidney to Russell Road intersection. The ceremony will be at the Russell Road end. Cutting the ribbon will be Chairman Francis DeLoye of the County Commissioners, and Miss Virginia Oldham, vice-mayor of SidCity Manager ney. William Fultz will represent Sidney at the dedication, Plez M. Gastineau, deputy director of Division Seven of the Highway Department.

25 years Oct. 15, 1986 The 12th annual Minster Oktoberfest set new records this weekend despite pouring rain, muddy grounds and chilly winds. Crowds estimated at more than 100,000 flocked to this Auglaize County Community Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to watch as a queen was crowned, a 150-unit parade traveled through people-lined streets, a variety of German Bands played and a normally sedate park turned into a sea of festival-goers. Shortly after the rain ended, Saturday, the Oktoberfest Committee issued a plea for straw to strew in muddy traffic areas throughout the North and South Park areas. Area farmers responded with several pickup trucks stacked with bales. ––––– The Miami Inn, 500 North Miami Ave., was sold Monday to a Sidney resident and it will be operated as rental apartments after remodeling. Kenneth Burks is the new owner with Karen Maxwell as an operating partner for the new business. The new owners plan a complete remodeling of the interior and exterior of the premises and will move in the former tenants, if any, from one floor to the other as work is done. ––––– A partnership of Raphael Echemann, Richard Messler amd R. John O. Biegel have purchased the Ohio Building. They are considering renovating the basement for more tenant space. The Ohio Building on North Ohio Avenue between Poplar and North Streets currently has 100 percent occupancy. The original structure of the Ohio Building was erected circa 1926.

Browns to pay Benard BEREA, Ohio (AP) — As Marcus Benard recovers from a motorcycle accident he’s lucky to have survived, the Cleveland defensive end has one less thing to worry about. The Browns have decided to pay the injured lineman for the remainder of this season, a gesture they didn’t have to make because he sustained a nonfootball-related injury. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press the Browns will pay Benard roughly $370,000 he’s still due

this season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of privacy laws. Benard’s base salary this season is $525,000. The team placed him on the reserve nonfootball injury list, ending his season after four games. On Monday, Benard broke his hand — and sustained other undisclosed injuries — when he smashed his threewheel Can-Am Spyder into a guardrail on Interstate 71 shortly after leaving the team’s training facility following practice.

Anna pounds St. Henry ANNA — Anna’s defense overwhelmed St. Henry in the first half and led to a real beatdown in Midwest Athletic Conference football action here Friday night, 40-0. The win was the third in a row for the Rockets and keeps their postseason hopes alive. They are now 5-3 on the year heading to Versailles for a crucial test Friday night. St. Henry falls to 1-7 on the season. The Rocket defense did not allow St. Henry a single first down in the first two quarters, and when figuring sacks into the total yards, the Redskins were held to minus-21 yards of total offense in the opening half. That gave the Anna offense plenty of opportunities to score, and the Rockets made the most of it. It started with a 17-yard touchdown run by Cole Furgason, who entered the game just 194 yards shy of 1,000 for the season. The Rockets then struck through the air, with Jay Meyer hitting Wes Wolters on a 61-yard scoring play to make it 14-0 after one quarter. Anna added three more

scores in the second period for a big halftime bulge. Dustin Noffsinger got the first of his two TDs in the quarter on a 3-yard run, and after Furgason capped a drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge, Noffsinger broke one for 59 yards to make it 34-0 at the half. Anna played it close to the vest in the second half, adding less than 100 yards more on ofense to finish with 399 for the game. The Rockets scored their final TD in the third quarter on a one-yard run by Noffsinger, giving him three TDs for the game.

LEHMAN’S ANDREW Gilardi is pulled back by a Delphos Jefferson tackler after a short gain in action Friday night at Sidney Memorial Stadium.

Cavs fall to Jefferson Lehman and Delphos Jefferson were hooked up in a good duel at Sidney Memorial Stadium Friday night, but the visiting Wildcats exploded for 21 points in the final five-and-a-half minutes of the second quarter to key a 27-7 victory over the Cavaliers in non-league football action. The Cavaliers drop their second straight and fall to 3-5 on the season with Waynesfield coming to town Saturday night. Lehman didn’t threaten at

all against the Wildcats in the first half, finishing with just 18 yards in total offense and two first downs. Still, it was scoreless with under half of the second quarter remaining, when the roof caved in on the hosts. Delphos capped a long drive with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Tony George on a fourth-and-four play with 5:35 remaining in the half. After a 3-and-out by the Cavs, the Wildcats scored again on a 65-yard run down the right sideline by Curtis

Miller to make it 14-0 with 3:15 left. Lehman again went threeand-out, and Delphos started on its own 33 with just a minute-and-a-half remaining. Three pass completions of 26, 17 and 20 yards put the Wildcats deep in Lehman territory, and with just 10 seconds remaining in the half, quarterback Jettinghoff hit Shayne Klinger from seven yards out for a 21-0 halftime lead.

PIQUA — A rocky start didn't get any better for the Sidney Yellow Jackets, who lost for the eighth straight time this season Friday night, this one to their biggest rival, the Piqua Indians by a 75-14 final. The Jackets drop to 0-8 with the loss and things get even tougher next week when they host Trotwood. Piqua goes to even on the year at 44 and hosts Vandalia Friday in what should be a good one. The tone was set early on as the Indians rolled to a 20-0 lead after one quarter. Sidney went three-and-out on its first series, and punted to Piqua's 40. On Piqua's very first play, the Indians broke it for a 60-yard touchdown run by Jon Dembski, who entered the game needing just 84 yards to reach 1,000 for the season. Things went from bad to worse for the Jackets when they started the next drive on their own 20, but fumbled it away, with Piqua's Solomon Carnes picking up the loose pigskin and stepping his way into the endzone from just five yards out for a 13-0 lead. Sidney was forced to punt again, but Dezmond Hudson recovered a Piqua fumble. Sidney turned it over on downs, and Piqua struck again on a 43-yard touchdown pass from Taylor Welbaum to Dom Stone with one minute left in the opening period. The Indians added four more scores in the second quarter to open up a 47-0 lead at the half. Piqua's Jordan Feeser intercepted a pass and returned it to Sidney's 7,and the Indians scored on a 6-yard pass from Welbaum to Feeser. Sidney then fumbled, with Piqua recovering the 15. And Piqua's Tyler Sage ran in from the 15 on the next play. Sidney got touchdowns from Kyle Dembski and Jordan Fox in the final period, both on shot runs.

“This is a great honor for Justine and the University of Dayton women’s basketball program,” said UD Head Coach Jim Jabir. “I think it says a lot about our program and how far we’ve come. Justine would be the first to tell you she couldn’t have achieved this by herself. “She has worked so hard to overcome a tough injury,” he added. “This recognition demonstrates how she has represented herself and the University in a high level the last three years.” The 6-foot-1 senior has averaged 14.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game over her three seasons at Dayton.

FALL

Minster High School graduate Kara Monnin started off her junior season in volleyball at Case Western Reserve in fine fashion, averaging just under double figures in digs as she led the team’s defense. But after the 11th match of the season, Monnin was sidelined with a rotator cuff injury, according to her father Jeff. She is slowly making her way back, returning to action last Saturday against Heidelberg. She was allowed to play just one rotation per match maximum, says her father, but she could return to full play this week. She hasn’t let the injury affect her work in the classroom. She has maintained a perfect 4.0 grade point average and was named this fall as one of the top 20 students in the Case Western 2013 graduating class.

In the end, it came down to a missed extra point as Minster scored with 1:40 remaining to pull within 21-20, but missed the point-after. Minster falls to 5-3 with the loss. Minster drew first blood, scoring just two minutes into the game when Daniel Gusching took a 19-yard pass from Adam Niemeyer for an early 7-0 lead. Versailles answered back in the second quarter, however, when quarterback Nick Campbell snuck in from a yard out to tie the score at 7-7, which is how it stood at the half.

CAUTION 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 branches are Union 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.
