ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Sheriff ’s deputies shot nearly 50 wild animals — including 18 rare Bengal tigers and 17 lions — in a big-game hunt across the state’s countryside Wednesday after the owner of an exotic-animal park threw their cages open and committed suicide in what may have been one last act of spite against his neighbors and police. As homeowners nervously hid indoors, officers armed with high-powered rifles and shoot-to-kill orders fanned out through fields and woods to

hunt down 56 animals that had been turned loose from the Muskingum County Animal Farm by owner Terry Thompson before he shot himself to death Tuesday. After an all-night hunt that extended into Wednesday afternoon, 48 animals were killed. Six others — three leopards, a grizzly bear and two monkeys — were captured and taken to the Columbus Zoo. A wolf was later found dead, leaving a monkey as the only animal still on the loose. Those destroyed included six black bears, two grizzlies, a baboon and three mountain See HUNT/Page 4A

A SIGN warning motorists that exotic animals are on the loose rests on I-70 Wednesday near Zanesville. Police stalked one last monkey still on the loose Wednesday after authorities said a game-preserve owner apparently freed dozens of wild animals, including tigers and grizzly bears, and then killed himself.

BOTKINS — Immaculate Conception Parish, located on North Main Street, will host a presentation titled “Celebrating a Half Century of Modern Church Design: Robert Holtmeier, Architect” Sunday at 2 p.m. in the church. The event is free and open to the public. Robert Holtmeier, the Cincinnati architect who designed Immaculate Conception Church (1961-62), also designed numerous churches throughout Ohio and Indiana. Featuring many photographs of churches near and far, this presentation explains Holtmeier’s prolific work and its contribution to church architecture. “We’re all looking forward to learning more about how our church and its architecture fit into the bigger picture of mid20th century church design,” said parishioner and anniversary committee member Rachel Barber. Speaker for the event will be Beth Sullebarger, a historic preservationist based in Glendale, with a special interest in churches.

homecoming To the editor: Football season is coming to an end, but it’s not too late to come out and support the students at Sidney High School! This Friday is homecoming and we will be hosting Trotwood High School. The next homecoming queen and king will be crowned before the 7:30 kickoff. Next Friday, Oct. 28, we will conclude the 2011 season by hosting Troy High School. Football isn’t always about winning. It’s about working hard, playing hard and having the dedication to see it through, no matter the outcome. And football season isn’t always about football. It’s about the marching band’s halftime show, and cheerleaders cheering through clear skies and rain, and smiling about it! It’s about coaches taking the time to teach their players not only about football, but also about life lessons in winning and losing. Football season

is about the Football Moms, Music Boosters and other groups working hard to raise funds for the football and music programs. Football season is a chance for the entire community to come together and show these young adults that we value them, and that we support them no matter what. I encourage you to come out and support all of these students. Come for the homecoming celebration. Come for the pregame band show. Come for the game kickoff. Stay and hear the band perform their halftime show. Do the “Jacket Buzz” cheer with the cheerleaders. Just come out and show your school spirit and your support. Let’s show these students that it’s not about winning or losing, but how you play the game. I know I’m proud of the way they’ve kept going. I hope you are as well. Sarah Steenrod 2150 W.

Great Sidney Farmer’s Market completes year The 2011 Great Sidney Farmer’s Market, which closed Oct. 8, was extended a week at the request of the vendors who had a late start to the growing season, and it was again a successful year for vendors. Vendors with produce, baked goods, jams and jellies, crafts, homemade soaps, loose teas and flowers came early every Saturday morning from New Knoxville, Maplewood, Piqua, West Alexandria, Urbana, Versailles, Huntsville, Bradford, Dayton, Wapakoneta, and all over Shelby County. The 2011 market had 41 seasonal vendors who came weekly and 32 that participated in the 2011 Applefest event. Numerous clubs, churches and organizations also take part in the Farmers Market. This year Rainbow Gardeners, OSU Alumni, FISH, and The Humane Society are just a few of the groups who participated weekly. Very few rain days dampened the market this year, although there were a few cold mornings. “Since taking over the market in late July it’s been a complete learning experience,” Maureen Smelewski, market coordinator says. “I’ve had some long and informative conversations with some of the ‘regulars’ and they are a true wealth of knowledge. Some of them have been here since the market started and love being a part of it. I am already working on the 2012 season and have invited some of the vendors to be a part of the planning process.” For information on the farmers market, area residents may contact Smelewski at Sidney Chamber of Commerce offices, 101 S. Ohio Ave. — floor 2 or call 492-9122. Residents can also visit the Downtown website at, Applications, rules and information will be available early in 2012.

Commission OKs request BY TOM BARNETT Following a brief public hearing Monday night, the Sidney Planning Commission recommended city council approve a zoning code amendment adding Daycare, Commercial as a permitted General Industrial district use. The amendment was requested by Emerson Wagner Reality on behalf of Rogy’s Learning Place. The local daycare facility is considering a site at 2280 Industrial Drive to be in close proximity to and better serve its clients and families. Tom Middleton, agent for Rogy’s, told commissioners the daycare center and many manufacturing companies feel a child care center located where people work would be an asset to both businesses and the community. He said the proposed new site, a 12,840 square foot building on 4.2 acres, would be purchased by Rogy’s and extensively remodeled.

“Amos Press, Cargill Inc. and other industries in the area have voiced their approval of the project,” Middleton told commissioners. Rogy’s was also represented at the hearing by business owner Rick Roby, who recently operated a child care center at 1824 Progressway for employees of MaMa Rosa and the public. Rogy, in response to a commissioner’s question, said the new facility must pass inspection by the state and that all staff members must be certified child care workers. Commissioners endorsed the zoning code amendment on condition Shelter in Place and Evacuation plans are approved by Sidney’s Department of Fire and Emergency Services and a drop-off and pick-up traffic pattern is approved by the city engineer. Rogy’s must also meet acceptable fire, building and health codes prior to occupancy of the new facility.

Union fight could boost HUNT Dems’ 2012 chances BY SAM HANANEL Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — A ballot battle over whether to keep Ohio’s tough new restrictions on public employee unions could give labor supporters and Democrats a lift going into the presidential election year. But some Democrats fear losing the Nov. 8 referendum could be another dispiriting setback that saps enthusiasm from the party’s progressive base. Unions have hoped that a backlash against Republican-led efforts to curb the rights of organized labor in state legislatures around the country could translate into victories for prolabor Democrats in 2012. Labor leaders expect to get a better sense of voters’ mindsets when Ohioans decide whether to toss out a law that

bans public employee strikes and limits the collective bargaining rights of more than 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers, state employees and others. The law signed in late March by Republican Gov. John Kasich allows unions to negotiate on wages, but not on pension or health care benefits. In response to a similar crackdown on public employees’ collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin — done as a budget-cutting measure — Wisconsin Democrats and labor leaders launched a recall campaign to win control of the state Senate from Republicans. They fell short in Republican-majority state Senate district races, but are more confident of the statewide referendum in Ohio. “We will, I believe, win that citizens veto,” AFLCIO president Richard

Trumka said of the Ohio vote in a recent speech at the Brookings Institution in Washington. The AFL-CIO alone poured more than $5.5 million into the Wisconsin effort and similar expenditures are planned for Ohio. Insiders are predicting the ballot battle could cost more than the $33 million spent in last year’s race for Ohio governor. Unlike the law in Wisconsin, Ohio’s measure curbing union rights includes police and firefighters, who tend to be more popular with independent and conservavoters. Ohio’s tive firefighters have been featured prominently in television ads supporting the referendum. The nation’s largest firefighters union, the International Association of Fire Fighters, has spent about $1 million so far in Ohio.

Ford workers OK contract DETROIT (AP) — Union workers at Ford Motor Co. overcame early opposition to a new four-year contract with the company and overwhelmingly approved the deal in voting that lasted two weeks. More than 22,000 workers, or 63 percent of those who cast ballots, voted in favor of the pact, while almost 13,000, or 37 percent, opposed it, the United Auto Workers said in a statement Wednesday. The vote means that new contracts have been approved at Ford and General Motors Co., with Chrysler workers just starting to vote on their deal. At all three companies, union leaders agreed to profit sharing and signing bonuses instead of annual pay raises, a novel concept that helps the companies control their costs yet rewards workers.

The contracts set the wages and benefits for 112,000 auto workers nationwide, and also influence the pay at auto plants owned by foreign companies, auto parts supply companies and other industries. As part of the deal at Ford, the company promised $4.8 billion in new investments in its U.S. plants and 5,750 new jobs. Ford and the UAW reached the agreement on Oct. 4 but workers had to ratify it with a majority vote. Most workers won’t get annual raises under the contract, but they will get profit-sharing checks, inflation adjustment payments and other bonuses worth at least $16,700 through 2015. The deal at GM was similar, but the Chrysler pact has far smaller signing bonuses and profit-sharing checks.

U.S. gov’t: Don’t reopen Demjanjuk citizenship case BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — Federal prosecutors said they will fight a “brazen” attempt to restore U.S. citizenship to a man deported to Germany and convicted on Nazi war crimes charges. In a U.S. District Court filing Tuesday night, prosecutors said retired Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk was trying to cast himself as a victim following his May 12 conviction in Germany on more than 28,000 counts of accessory to murder. Demjanjuk’s attorneys charge that the government failed to disclose important evidence, namely a 1985 secret FBI report uncovered by The Associated Press. It indicates the FBI believed a Nazi ID card purportedly showing that Demjanjuk served as a death camp guard was a Soviet-made fake. Public defender Dennis Terez, appointed to represent Demjanjuk in the matter, declined to comment Wednesday. There was no immediate

comment from the family. Demjanjuk, 91, was convicted by a court that found he had served as a guard at the Nazi’s Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland. He was sentenced to five years in prison. Demjanjuk denies serving as a guard at any camp and is free pending his appeal. He’s been in poor health for years and has been in and out of a hospital since his conviction. He currently cannot leave Germany because he has no passport, but he could get a U.S. passport if the denaturalization ruling was overturned. Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk was a Soviet Red Army soldier captured by the Germans in 1942. The Munich court found he agreed to serve the Nazis as a guard at Sobibor. “John Demjanjuk comes before this court casting himself as the victim — of government misconduct and a ‘miscarriage of justice’ that led to his 2002 denaturalization,” the government said in a 56-page filing accompanied by 35 exhibits.

lions. Dead animals were being buried on Thompson’s farm, officials said. “It’s like Noah’s Ark wrecking right here in Zanesville, Ohio,” lamented Jack Hanna, TV personality and former director of the Columbus Zoo. Hanna defended the sheriff’s decision to kill the animals but said the deaths of the Bengal tigers were especially tragic. There are only about 1,400 of the endangered cats left in the world, he said. “When I heard 18, I was still in disbelief,” he said. “The most magnificent creature in the entire world, the tiger is.” As the hunt dragged on outside of Zanesville, population 25,000, schools closed in the mostly rural area of farms and widely spaced homes 55 miles east of Columbus. Parents were warned to keep children and pets indoors. And flashing signs along highways told motorists, “Caution exotic animals” and “Stay in vehicle.” Officers were ordered to kill the animals instead of trying to bring them down with tranquilizers for fear that those hit with darts would escape in the darkness before they dropped and would later regain consciousness. “These animals were on the move, they were showing aggressive behavior,” Sheriff Matt Lutz said. “Once the nightfall hit, our biggest concern was having these animals roaming.” The sheriff would not speculate why Thompson killed himself and why he left open the cages and fences at his 73-acre preserve, dooming the animals he seemed to love so much. Thompson, 62, had had repeated run-ins with the law and his neighbors. Lutz said that the sheriff’s office had received numerous complaints since 2004 about animals escaping onto neighbors’ property. The sheriff’s office also said that Thompson had been charged over the years with animal cruelty, animal neglect and allowing animals to roam. He had gotten out of federal prison just last month after serving a year for possessing unregistered guns. John Ellenberger, a neighbor, speculated that Thompson freed the animals to get back at neighbors and police. “Nobody much cared for him,” Ellenberger said. Angie McElfresh, who lives in an apartment near the farm and hunkered down with her family in fear, said “it could have been an ‘f-you’ to everybody around him.”

Thompson had rescued some of the animals at his preserve and purchased many others, said Columbus Zoo spokeswoman Patty Peters. It was not immediately clear how Thompson managed to support the preserve and for what purpose it was operated, since it was not open to the public. But Thompson had appeared on the “Rachael Ray Show” in 2008 as an animal handler for a zoologist guest, said show spokeswoman Lauren Nowell. The sheriff’s office started getting calls Tuesday evening that wild animals were loose just west of Zanesville. Deputies went to the animal preserve and found Thompson dead and all the cages open. Several aggressive animals were near his body and had to be shot, the sheriff said. Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Merry was among the first to respond Tuesday. He said he shot a number of animals, including a gray wolf and a black bear. He said the bear charged him and he fired his pistol, killing it with one shot when it was about 7 feet away. “All these animals have the ability to take a human out in the length of a second,” said Merry, who called himself an animal lover but said he knew he was protecting the community. “What a tragedy,” said Barb Wolfe, a veterinarian with The Wilds, a nearby zoo-sponsored wild animal preserve. She said she managed to hit a tiger with a tranquilizer dart, but the animal charged toward her and then turned and began to flee before the drug could take effect, and deputies shot the big cat. At an afternoon news conference, the sheriff said that the danger had passed and that people could move around freely again, but that the monkey would probably be shot because it was believed to be carrying a herpes disease. “It was like a war zone with all the shooting and so forth with the animals,” said Sam Kopchak, who was outside Tuesday afternoon when he saw Thompson’s horses acting up. Kopchak said he turned and saw a male lion lying down on the other side of a fence. “The fence is not going to be a fence that’s going to hold an African lion,” Kopchak said. Danielle Berkheimer said she was nervous as she drove home Tuesday night and afraid to let her two dogs out in the yard.

Pakistan to U.S.: focus on Afghan ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan’s powerful army chief said in a rare briefing to parliamentarians that the U.S. should focus its efforts on stabilizing neighboring Afghanistan, rather than pressuring Islamabad to step up its war against Islamist militants on Pakistani territory, a parliament member said Wednesday. Gen. Ashfaq Pervez Kayani’s appearance before two parliamentary defense committees followed increased U.S. pressure on Pakistan to crack down on the Haqqani militant network, believed to be based in the country’s North Waziristan tribal area along the Afghan border.

Retailers desperate NEW YORK (AP) — Retailers are so desperate this holiday season that they’re willing to lose money to get you to spend yours. Take online jeweler Stauer. It’s offering a $249 amethyst necklace for free — provided customers pay the $24.95 it costs to ship it. Stauer will lose money on the deal, but it hopes to reel in new customers who will buy other jewelry. “In this economy, you have to be outrageous in your offers,” said Michael Bisceglia, the president of Stauer who found that more than a third of customers who took advantage of a similar deal on a $179 pearl necklace in 2009 bought additional items. “You have to shake up the world a bit.”

New baby in France PARIS (AP) — French first lady Carla BruniSarkozy gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday night — the first infant born to a sitting president of modern-day France, according to media reports. President Nicolas Sarkozy was returning from a meeting in Frankfurt on the euro debt crisis when the child was born around 8 p.m. (1800 GMT) on Wednesday, according to BFM TV. Europe 1 radio said the birth “went well” for the 43-year-old mother, a singer and former supermodel. She entered the small, private Muette Clinic in late morning, according to the reports. The presidential palace did not immediately confirm the reports.

OUT OF THE BLUE Cat gets close look at mountain lion BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Gail Loveman's 11-year-old cat named Zeus usually stands tall and hisses when he sees a squirrel outside his owner’s home. He wasn’t as much of a tough guy when the animal on the other side of the glass was a mountain lion. Loveman tells The Denver Post the encounter lasted about five minutes before the mountain lion wandered off from her house near the foothills west of Boulder. Loveman says she was in her home office last Thursday when she heard a noise and turned to see the mountain lion on the porch. Zeus entered the room and walked to the sliding glass door for a closer look while Loveman snapped photos.

Medicare costs to reduce Social Security increase WASHINGTON (AP) — That didn’t last long. About 55 million Social Security recipients will get their first increase in benefits next year since 2009 — a 3.6 percent raise. But higher Medicare premiums could erase a big chunk of it. For some, higher Medicare Part B premiums could wipe out as much as a fourth of their raise from Social Security, according to projections by the trustees who oversee the programs. Medicare is expected to announce 2012 Part B premiums as early as next week. The premiums, which cover doctor visits, are deducted automatically from monthly Social Security payments.

The Social Security Administration announced the pay increase Wednesday, offering a measure of comfort to millions of retirees and disabled people, many who have seen their retirement accounts dwindle, home values drop and out-ofpocket medical costs rise in the years since their last raise. Starting in January, 55 million Social Security recipients will get increases averaging $39 a month, or just over $467 for the year. In December, more than 8 million people who receive Supplemental Security Income, the disability program for the poor, will get increases averaging $18 a month, or about $216 for the year. In all, 1 in 5 U.S. residents

SOURCE: AP-GfK Poll conducted Oct. 13-17


Poll: Public unsettled on Obama challenger WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans have yet to find a Republican they’d clearly prefer over President Barack Obama, although half say the president does not deserve reelection. Among Republicans, the desire to oust Obama is clear, according to a new AP-GfK poll. But it has not resolved divisions over the choice of a nominee. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is reasonably popular, but he has not pulled away from the field. Former pizza company executive Herman Cain runs close to Romney as the candidate Republicans would most like to see on the ballot, but many Republicans are reluctant to back a man who has never held office. Texas Gov. Rick Perry lags in the poll, which was conducted before Tuesday night’s

combative debate in Las Vegas. In that two-hour forum, several candidates sharply criticized Cain’s tax proposals, and a newly energized Perry hit Romney hard on immigration. In the poll, Romney was the choice of 30 percent of Republicans, with Cain about even at 26 percent. Perry was preferred by 13 percent, and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas topped the list of those in single digits. Among all adults surveyed, half said Obama should not be re-elected, and 46 percent said he should be. That continues his gradual slide since May. When all adults are asked about hypothetical head-tohead matchups, Obama and Romney run almost even, 48 percent for Obama to 45 percent. Obama holds a narrow edge over Cain, 49 percent to 43 percent.

stand to get a raise from the cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA. Advocates for seniors say the raise is welcome and overdue. “It may be cold comfort, however, once they see just how high next year’s Medicare premiums will go,” said Max Richtman, president and CEO of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. The annual cost-of-living adjustment is tied to an inflation measure released Wednesday. The measure, which was adopted in the 1970s, produced no COLA in 2010 or 2011 because inflation was too low. Those were the first two years without a

COLA since automatic increases were enacted in 1975. Monthly Social Security payments average $1,082, or about $13,000 a year. Medicare Part B premiums must be set each year to cover 25 percent of program costs. By law, they have been frozen at 2009 levels for about 75 percent of beneficiaries because there has been no increase in Social Security payments. That means the entire premium hike has been borne by the remaining 25 percent, which includes new enrollees, high-income families and lowincome beneficiaries who have their premiums paid by Medicaid, the federal-state health care program for the poor.

Clinton in Kabul to push Afghan reconciliation KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is encouraging Afghanistan’s wary leadership to keep up Taliban reconciliation efforts and boosting counterterrorism cooperation with Pakistan as the Obama administration presses ahead with troop withdrawal plans. Clinton arrived in Kabul late Wednesday on an unannounced visit and was scheduled to see President Hamid Karzai, other top Afghan officials and civic leaders on Thursday. Her trip came after Karzai expressed frustration with attempts to woo Taliban fighters away from the insurgency amid increasing attacks by the Taliban-allied, Pakistan-based Haqqani network. Clinton was also to underscore the importance of linking Afghanistan to its neighbors, a consideration for a regional conference in Istanbul in early November, U.S. officials said. The U.S. sees a political settlement with the Taliban as key to ending the war and is pushing Karzai to lead and expand a reconciliation drive, although the Taliban has indicated no public interest in such a deal. A secret U.S. effort to spark negotiations earlier this year angered Karzai. The goal of reconciling fighters who renounce alQaida and violence and embrace Afghanistan’s constitution was dealt a major blow with the assassination last month of elder statesman Burhanuddin Rabbani, who

was leading Karzai’s outreach. Rabbani was killed when he greeted a suicide bomber posing as a Taliban emissary bearing a reconciliation message. A senior U.S. official said Clinton would emphasize that the U.S. remains committed to Afghan reconciliation and understands the difficulties that that process has undergone since the assassination. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to preview Clinton’s meetings. Karzai has cited the killing as a reason why peace efforts are futile. He lamented recently that although he wants to continue, neighboring Pakistan should be in the lead since the Taliban high command lives there. In addition, spectacular attacks — like one last month on the U.S. Embassy compound and the headquarters of the US-led NATO forces in Kabul — by the Haqqani network have dented enthusiasm for the push. The U.S. official said the Obama administration is sympathetic to Karzai’s desire for Pakistan to do more and that Clinton would talk with Karzai about the need for Pakistan to put additional pressure on the Haqqani network. Over the weekend, militants tried but failed to blast their way into an American base in eastern Afghanistan, striking before dawn with rocket-propelled grenades and a car bomb. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a text message sent to The Associated Press.

GOP primary contest is getting nasty LAS VEGAS (AP) — Talk about nasty. The bitter, face-to-face sniping at this week’s Republican debate was just a prelude to the coming weeks as Mitt Romney’s rivals seek to tear him down before the leadoff Iowa caucuses. Increasingly on the defensive, Romney is being hammered on old issues — like an accusation of hiring illegal immigrants to work on his yard — and is creating new openings for everyone from Rick Perry to President Barack Obama. “You won’t hear a lot of shape-shifting nuance from me,” Perry told Republicans gathered in Las Vegas on Wednesday, hitting Romney anew the day after the two sparred onstage during a debate. “I’m going to give the American people a huge, big old helping of unbridled truth.” The target was Romney, who over the years has reversed his positions on a series of issues that conservatives champion. And the sharper,

be less concerned about keeping his own job and spend more time helping the millions who are unemployed.” But more criticism against Romney is certain to come from fellow Republicans as the race for the GOP nomination enters a new phase and the 2012 general election inches closer. For now, Romney tops state surveys and national polls, including the latest Associated Press-GfK survey, in the GOP campaign. Perry’s and Romney’s other rivals have mere weeks to change that dynamic before the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3. After five debates since Labor Day, the candidates won’t meet again in that setting until mid-November. So they’ll be mixing it up mostly from afar — on the campaign trail, on the Internet and, soon, in television advertising by the candidates themselves as well as by Super PACs that are working on their behalf and can spend as much money as they raise.

Downtown theater to screen films Starting Friday, the Historic Sidney Theatre, 120 W. Poplar St., will once again show films. Built in 1921, the Majestic Theatre, as it was then called, was a facility for live performance as well as film. It was used as a movie theatre from the 1960s until it closed in 2004. The Historic Sidney Theatre was purchased in 2009 by Raise the Roof for the Arts (RTR), a charitable nonprofit, whose purpose is to renovate and operate it for the community and region. “We are still in a planning phase and though the Historic Sidney Theatre has not undergone renovations, we are still able to host some live performances and films at the theatre,” said Mardie Milligan, president of RTR. “We have had several inquiries about movies and are excited to announce that we will be showing a variety of classic films starting this weekend with ‘Royal Wedding’ starring Fred Astaire. We won’t be offering newer films at this time because of distribution costs; however, the variety of older classic films should be great fun and a great value for our community.” The films will be projected through a digital projector onto the main stage screen. Sound

equipment will be provided compliments of Sock & Buskin Community Theatre and Sidney Dance Company. All movies begin at 8 p.m. Admission is $3 per person except for the Oct. 28 double feature which costs $5 per person. The film series lineup follows: “Royal Wedding” starring Fred Astaire, Jane Powell, Peter Lawford, Sarah Churchill and Keenan Wynn, in a 1951 Hollywood musical comedy. Friday and Saturday. “White Zombie”, starring Bela Lugosi and “House on Haunted Hill”, starring Vincent Price, in a Fright Night double feature; Oct. 28. “Night of the Living Dead”, the 1968 classic cult horror film for Halloween Costume Night; wear a costume; best costumes receive prizes.

As Christians, while While there are many

facets to the issue of the Botkins School bond and tax levy, some of which are quite challenging, I am for the bond issue and levy because of leadership and opportunity. Having been privileged to live in Botkins coming on 10 years now, I must say I love and respect the people of Botkins and feel blessed to be a part of the community. As I have experienced it, one of the wonderful strengths of the Botkins community is leadership and nowhere is that leadership more laudable than at Botkins School. From the superintendent, to the school board, to administration, teachers and involved parents, those leading Botkins School are great leaders. Of course, leadership is never a walk in the park. One of the challenges of good leaders is that, while they love us

where we are in life, also, they never cease to call us to more and better. Clearly, Jesus would be the example of outstanding leadership. He loves us as we are and his love is too great for him to not challenge us and call us beyond ourselves. Change and conversion are his constant calling to us. As leaders in Botkins call us beyond ourselves to see a greater common good, they lift up an opportunity for a new school that is unparalleled. Opportunity is the second reason I am for the Botkins new school levy. Again see the webNewBotkinsSsite for dimensions of the opportunity offered to the people of Botkins. Religiously, opportunity is called grace. God is continually offering grace to us to be holier and to bring about The Kingdom better, our ulti-

mate hope for true and Interestlasting joy. ingly, whether for God`s grace or for other good opportunity, receiving and making the most of them usually involves the cross of Jesus: sacrifice, suffering, even dying to self. Fear and doubt are also present. However, faith and action in Christ help us to overcome the fear and doubt, bear the cross and benefit from grace so that the new life of resurrection results. As I give thanks to the Lord for leadership

and opportunity present in our community, I have been praying with even greater fervor for the people of our beloved Botkins. May fear and doubt be cast out. May we discern carefully about the old and the new. May hard work, trust and vision for the future in Christ guide us. The writer is the pastor of Petersburg Parishes: Immaculate Conception, Botkins; St. Lawrence, Rhine; and St. Joseph, Wapakoneta.

FAIR HAVEN wants to congratulate and thank our Admissions Director, Carol DeNise! She has faithfully served here at Fair Haven for 30 years! In 1981, Carol came to us as an STNA, thinking this would be a temporary job for her. Thirty years later, she has served as STNA, Activities Director, Social Services Assistant and has for the the last ten years fulfilled the roll of Social Services Director and Director of Admissions. She is saying goodbye to a wonderful family here at Fair Haven and will be greatly missed. But, she is excited about her upcoming retirement in early November. She has many plans with household projects, time with her husband, her kids and her five grandchildren. We also are looking forward to Roblin Burleson, LSW, who will be taking over for Carol. Carol also plans to continue her community work with the Alzheimers Association and other volunteering opportunities here in Shelby County.

Thanks Carol for 30 wonderful years!

Parents give advice on feuding brothers


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 Friday, Oct. 21, 2011 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relations with partners and close friends will be full of mutual understanding today. It’s as if you are buzzing on each other’s wavelengths. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might want to help a co-worker, or perhaps others will be sympathetic to you. Either way, people feel compassionate to each other on the job. This is encouraging. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is wonderful day for artists or anyone who does great work. Those of you who work with children will feel sympathetic to those who are in need. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family discussions will be mutually supportive because people are willing to show how much they care for each other today. Family might gather together to support one person in particular. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might spend time today daydreaming and wool gathering. Not to worry. We all need days like this at times. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) If shopping, you might go overboard today buying something luxurious. (So tempting!) Think twice, because you know the bill will arrive later in the mail. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You feel inspired by someone today. You might meet someone you greatly admire. Just make sure you’re not wearing rose-colored glasses that af-

fect your judgment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might surprise yourself by your willingness to put yourself second and the needs of someone else first today. You’re not being a martyr. You just care about the welfare of someone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Working with groups, especially for a charitable cause, will be a rewarding effort for you today. You like the idea of joining forces to improve the lives of those who are suffering or in need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) If you have any influence, especially with people in power, use it today to inspire others. If people realize they can make a difference, even in a little way, they will do so. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, visit beautiful architectural buildings, parks, libraries, universities and places that inspire you. You will enjoy this. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) If you can use shared property or wealth to help someone in need today, you will. You might need to convince others that this is a worthy endeavor. YOU BORN TODAY You’re bright, clever and charming. You’re also rebellious. Many of you have an urge to fix whatever is broken or improve things. You have excellent verbal skills and write and speak with grace. You’re clear about what you want. In the next year, something you’ve been involved in, for about nine years, will diminish or end to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Charlotte Sullivan, actress; Kim Kardashian, socialite/TV personality; Will Estes, actor.

Going to a friend’s house or having a friend his own age over are good options. • Parents should talk to the younger brother about his irritating behavior and its consequences. He should be punished if the antagonizing continues. Time out works well. • The older brother should have a place of refuge, a “sanctuary” where he can go and not be disturbed. This can be

Sehlhorst named Commended Student Lehman Catholic High School Principal Denise Stauffer recently n a nounced that senior Daniel Sehlhorst has been named a C o m m e n d e d Sehlhorst Student in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship competition. A Letter of Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corp. was presented to Sehlhorst by Stauffer following the celebration of Mass recently. About 34,000 commended students attending high schools throughout the nation are receiving similar recognition for their exceptional academic promise. These students placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who took the 2010 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Although they are not eligible to receive National Merit Scholarships, these Commended Students are assured a chance for additional scholarship offers from the colleges and universities at which they choose to apply. “The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesper-

son for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national resource. Recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, it vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.” Sehlhorst is the son of Dan and Marcie Sehlhorst, of Troy. While at Lehman Catholic, Sehlhorst has participated on the Science Olympiad, Academia and Mock Trial teams. Captain of the soccer team, he is also a member of the tennis team. Sehlhorst also serves as vice president of the Lehman Catholic Student Council, is a member of the Interact Club, Pro-Lifeguards and the Substance Abuse Advisory Committee, National Honor Society, Relay for Life and Ohio Energy Project. Sehlhorst is a member of Lehman’s Spiritual Life Council, is a Kairos Retreat leader, and is president of the Saint Patrick Parish Youth Council. An ambassador to the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Conference and a delegate to Buckeye Boys State, Sehlhorst received the University of Rochester Bausch and Lomb Science Award and a Youth Leadership Award from the Rotary

Club earlier this year. Sehlhorst also served as a page in the United States House of Representatives. Sehlhorst plans to study at a four-year university but has not chosen a university or field of study at this time.


Rhodes State College LIMA — The 2011 summer quarter dean’s list for part-time students at Rhodes State College has been announced. To be eligible for this part-time dean’s list, a student must be enrolled in at least six but not more than 11 credit hours and earn a 3.5 grade-point average or higher. Area students named to the list were: • Sidney — Christine M. Flynn, Ellyn J. Schmiesing and Danielle Marie Shoemaker.

• Anna — Sarah D. Coyer and Jessica K Gehret. • Botkins — Andrea M. Bergman and Miki L. Gillespie. • DeGraff — Rayann N. Osborne. • Maria Stein — Amber Rose Griesdorn. • Minster — Sara M Beckman, Stephanie Marie Beckman and Melissa Kay Brussell. • New Bremen — Tamara Jean Smith. • New Knoxville — Alicia Kay Green.

I hope this helps all the Michaels out there. Keep those lines of communication open! — Mom, Michigan City, Ind. MOM: Thanks for sharing your experience. Your letter was valuable not only for the handy tips, which I’m sure will be of help to many families struggling with this problem, but also because it demonstrates some important characteristics of good parents. They are flexible rather than rigid in their approach, ready to admit when they’re wrong and, above all, willing to ask for help. Your letter also showed sensitivity to the needs of both your boys. They’re lucky to have such good parents! Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers. Although he is unable to reply to all of them individually, he will answer as many as possible in this column. Email him at

Ms. Kline: Sidney is half the size of the school where I student taught and is different because the atmosphere there is much like a college campus. Sidney is about 15 times larger than the school I was teaching at after-school. The school was not very structured and the students were not very well behaved. Sidney students are angels in comparison! Mrs. Fannon: Sidney is a great school. Everyone has Why did you enter the field of education? And, how old been so supportive and the staff here is amazing.

Issue #5 - October 20, 2011

“Change a heart, change the world” BY: MARIA YANNUCCI The Lehman Show Choir has chosen “Change a Heart, Change the World” to be their 2011-2012 theme. Among the talented performers in this year’s Limelighters are singer-dancers Danny Davis, Natalie Davis, Kris Lee, William Duritsch, Ethan Jock, Gabe Berning, Michael Jacob, Jake Watkins, Emily Wildenhaus, Mckenna Cabe, Elaina Snyder, Julia Harrelson, Dana Jenkins, Abby O’Connell, Meghan Safreed, Sarah Cabe, Grace Jackson, Olivia Sehlhorst and Katie Heckman. The musical combo includes Millie Cartwright, Logan Monnin, Emily Pax, Riley Pickrel, Erik Rodenburgh and Alia Whitney. The group has grown in numbers since last year and includes a lot of new songs and choreography. Senior and fourth-year member Emily Pax said, “it is an honor to be able to participate in Show Choir for 4 years; not many people get to do that.” A taste of their song list reveals that they are singing songs like “Man in the Mirror,” “Living on a Prayer” and “Beautiful Day.” Intrigued and want to see for yourself? The Show Choir’s upcoming premiere concert is November 1. As a first year member, sophomore Julia Harrelson says that, “It has been a lot of fun so far. We have been working very hard and I cannot wait to see the reaction of the crowd at the premiere!” The Show Choir advisors include Choir Director Jacquelyn Jenkinson and Band Director Elaine Schweller-Snyder. This year’s choreographers are two LHS grads - Libby Galbreath (‘08) and Chad Hewitt (‘06). Overall this group of students seems to mesh together and work hard which will pay off in performances. Junior Danny Davis said, “Whatever happens, we make it work!”

A flash-forward to the new yearbook BY: LEXIE FRONING A few weeks ago, the 2011 yearbook was passed out to students. The “flashback” theme featured the 40th anniversary of Lehman. The book was a huge hit throughout the school, and everyone was impressed with the layout and design. Within the pages of the book, pictures of past years were printed in black and white, showing the history of Lehman’s alumni. Senior Masie Sherman said, “I think the yearbook was super good, and I definitely dig the black and white photos”. Many agree that the way the 2011 journalism class worked to integrate the past years of Lehman with the current year was phenomenal. The 2012 journalism class will have a difficult task trying to create a book just as impressive as last year’s, but they are positive and excited to begin. The theme they have chosen for the 2012 book is inspired by today’s technology. “iLehman: Connections” will definitely speak to the generation whose lives rely so heavily on phones, social networking sites, and computers in general. Since there is so much to work with using this theme, I believe our class will have a great time getting creative.

Together we can, we will BY: AMY WATERCUTTER The regular season ended for the Lehman Lady Cavs volleyball team with their exciting win over Parkway in four games. Finishing the regular season with a 193 record and ranked #2 in the state in Division IV, the ladies are looking forward for the tournament to start so they can defend their 2010 State Championship. The varsity team this year consists of seniors Morgan Schmitmeyer, Lindsey Spearman, Maria Yannucci, Meghan Earhart, Amy Watercutter, and Paxton Hatcher; juniors Andrea Thobe, Ellie Waldsmith, and Ally Bergman; sophomores Erica Paulus and Ellie Cain; and freshman Olivia Slagle. Teams that will play each other in tournament were drawn on October 9. Lehman played in the first round of Sectionals on Monday, October 17, and are looking to advance to win their 19th consecutive district title this year, which would be an amazing accomplishment. The girls have had some tough competition this season, but are ready for tournament and hoping to go all the way for the second consecutive year. Their losses were to CJ (a Division I team), Miami East (who finished the season as #1 in the state in Division III), and St. Henry (who are currently #1 in the state in Division IV). “Our season has been interesting,” said Hatcher. “We are definitely ready to make a run in tournament and to go back to state.” “I’m hoping that we will have a great tournament run like we did last year,” said Waldsmith. The team is looking positively toward their fresh start in tournament, and they are ready for the games to come. “I can’t wait for the chance to repeat our accomplishments,” said Earhart. “We have worked hard this year and I know it will pay off.” Go Lady Cavs!

Brains ARE everything BY: NICK BOSHONEK In today’s society, there is a great thirst for knowledge. Often we keep the knowledge we know bottled up and not expressed in the fullest way. People, who do not have this problem, are on the Academia team. Lehman’s Academia coach is Mr. Schmiesing. Academia is a competition, in which students from different schools face off against each other, to answer trivial questions from the subject areas in which they are competing. There are ten subjects for competition: literature, language, fine arts; sports, entertainment and leisure, history and government, current events, math, science, and general knowledge. During the actual competition, a group of four students are on the same team for each subject. They compete against two or three other schools. Each team gets five questions on their subject, and get a point for every question they answer correctly. After each school answers their five questions, there is a lightning round. The lightning round is five questions, each worth a point, that each group from different schools has a chance to answer. Each group has to press a buzzer as fast as possible and then answer the question correctly. Whoever presses the buzzer first gets to answer the question; if they get it wrong, the next group who pressed the buzzer gets to answer. All the points from each group are added up, and the school with the most points wins that round. Lehman won their first match against Jackson Center and Anna. There are six matches total.

The first meeting looking toward this end will be held Monday evening at the high school under the direction of T.L. Presser. ––––– John J. Tompkins, who operated the Sidney Battery Shop for the past year, has sold it to Charles Dunson, who took possession today. Mr. Tompkins purchased the shop, located on East Court Street at Miami Avenue, from Arthur Werst. ––––– The special train carrying President Franklin D. Roosevelt from Toledo to Cincinnati passed through Sidney shortly before 5 o’clock this morning over the B and O Railroad. The train was running slow but made no stop.

REPLAY 50 years ago October 20, 1961 Bob Young had a chance to beat Ivan Grilliot in a four-position rifle match at the Armory on Thursday night, but faded in the offhand test. Ivan, who operates an auto parts garage in Versailles, got a 99 on prone, folloed by perect 1090s in sitting and kneeling, and then finished with a 96 for a 395. And Young had 100s in both prone and sitting, garnered a 98 on his knee, but slipped to an 86 in offhand to tie with Carl Evans.

25 years ago October 20, 1986 Fort Loramie and Anna advanced to the regional at Troy by finishing fourth and fifth at Springfield North in District cross country. The Redskins were led by Brad Rethman in 10th. Stan Broerman was 20th, Jamie Cottrell 39th, Allen Hoelscher 40th and Scott DeLoye 43rd. Anna was led by Dan Noffsinger in sixth. Del Noffsinger was 14th, Rick Kipp 35th, Tony Bensman 49th and Brad Reaman 59th.

10 years ago October 20, 2001 Minster kept its playoff hopes alive Friday with a thrilling 36-34 victory over Parkway. Andy Roetgerman, who rushed for 102 yards on 19 carries, scored from the 12 in the second quarter and Phil Slane hit a 40-yard field goal to give the Wildcats a 22-13 lead at the half.

Jackets brace for 8-0 Rams BY KEN BARHORST Adam Doenges knows he sounds like a broken record, but he’s sticking to his philosophy surrounding his Sidney Yellow Jackets. Knowing he has little or no chance of winning Friday night with unbeaten Trotwoood coming to town, Doenges says the Jackets have to worry about themselves. And that’s all. They are bracing for the invasion of the Greater Western Ohio Conference North’s best team, one that appears headed for its fourth straight North Division championship. And if the Rams win over Sidney and Vandalia in the final two weeks, it will be four years in a row they have finished unbeaten in North play. “I think this is the most complete Trotwood team yet,” said Doenges of the Rams,who are ranked third in the state in Division II by The Associated Press, and have already clinched a play-

off spot. “They don’t seem to have that big star player like the running back they had the last couple of years. But this is the most complete Trotwood team. They are fundamentally sound, their kicking game is outstanding, and they just have all the ingredients. Their offensive and defensive lines are usually a little slower, but this year they’re very athletic. It will be interesting to see what they can do once they get in the playoffs.” That’s all bad news for Doenges’ young Sidney team which is still looking for its first win of the season. The Jackets are coming off a 75-14 loss to Piqua last week. “We have to get better and worry about ourselves,” he said. “I keep saying it every week, and it’s hard to find another way of saying it. But we can look at this and say the season is winding down, and we can start relaxing and just having fun. I need the sophomores and juniors to get better because they are the ones

who will be on the field next season. “When you have a record like we have, you just have to play for the love of the game,” he added. “You have to make the most of the time you have together.” The Rams’ running game is led by Isreal Green, who has 1,175 yards rushing so far this season, with 14 touchdowns. Quarterback Michael Simpson has thrown for 1,425 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, with his favorite target being Trai Mobley with 40 receptions. The Rams have only been tested once, winning 26-23 over Piqua with a touchdown pass on the final play of the game. “Watching some of the films, some teams have had success moving the ball against them,” said Doenges. “They’re still high school kids, and still the same age as our kids. It’s not like they’re world-beaters. But we know we’re going to have to play a perfect game against them.”

Doenges said he is already looking down the road in his quest to return the Jackets to respectability. “It’s not going to happen overnight, and I realized that when I got here,” he said. “There are some things we have to change all the way down to the lower levels and it’s a long process. Already, I’m formulating things in my mind for down the road, but for now we want to send the seniors off with a good taste in their mouths.” He worries about numbers in the future, but likes what he sees out of the junior high teams so far. “We have to get the numbers up,” he said. “But you quality in those numbers. One of the problems is that kidds will play seventh and eighth grade football, then take a couple years off and come back as juniors or seniors. I think the coaches in junior high have done a nice job with those kids, planting that seed that they can be the ones that turn things around.”

Four Turns WELCOME BACK, JACK Matt 1 Kenseth’s win at Charlotte was the first points-paying victory by a Roush Fenway Racing Ford at CMS since Mark Martin won the Coca-Cola 600 in May 2002. Martin’s win was Roush’s fourth consecutive Coke 600 triumph. Since then, Roush teams have won the All-Star Race at Charlotte on three occasions (Kenseth, 2004; Martin, 2005; Carl Edwards, 2011). HE’S BEEN HERE BEFORE Jimmie Johnson’s crash and subsequent Did Not Finish (DNF) at Charlotte was his first in the Chase since October 2006, the first year of his five-year title run. Ironically, that finish also dropped him to eighth in the point standings. He was able to make up the 156-point deficit over the next six races by averaging a third-place finish to end the season. WORST TO FIRST ... THEN SECOND Kyle Busch’s runner-up finish to Matt Kenseth in the Bank of America 500 was notable in that he was forced to start in the back after his Joe Gibbs Racing team changed engines after practice. Busch’s charge to the front was complete on lap 125, when he took the lead for the first time. He then led from laps 200-310 — a total of 111 — to lead all drivers. MAKING THE MOST OF IT Although Kasey Kahne will be vacating the seat of the No. 4 Red Bull Racing Toyota at season’s end, he’s finishing strong. Kahne has consecutive runs of fourth, second and fourth in the last three races. It is still not known whether the operation as a whole will return next season, as Red Bull is pulling out of NASCAR in an ownership capacity.

Kenseth wins at Charlotte; Johnson takes major hit. By MATT TALIAFERRO Athlon Sports Racing Editor

Call it the Sports Illustrated jinx. Call it inevitable; that no one team’s dominance can last that long. Or just call it bad racing luck. However you define it, Jimmie Johnson is feeling it. Johnson’s bid for a sixth consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup title took a damaging — though not fatal — hit after a vicious wreck late in Saturday’s Bank of America 500. Meanwhile, Matt Kenseth rode a strong mount to victory, his third of the season, which kept him squarely in contention to win the 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup. Kenseth proved to be the strongest of Jack Roush’s quintet of Fords, keeping the leaders within striking distance throughout the evening, and finally pouncing on lap 310 of 334, when he made the race-winning pass of Kyle Busch, and cruised to his second career points-paying win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kenseth’s win was the latest performance in a string of stout finishes that has seen the 2003 series champion — and noted understated Wisconsin native — rack up runs of sixth, fifth, fourth and now first. And he sits just seven points behind points leader and teammate Carl Edwards, who finished third at Charlotte. “It was awesome win for us,” Kenseth said. “We had a pretty decent car all night. I felt like we had a car that would probably last 150 laps or so, that if we could get in front, it would be hard to beat. But it was really hard to pass tonight, especially after you had about 20 laps on your tires, you needed to get it done right away (after a restart). “And we got ourselves behind just a little bit that one time and got back to fifth or sixth and, honestly, took

While horsepower and aero are important, the CoT evens the playing field in the aero department, and the restrictor plates do so (although not to the same extent) under the hoods. Talladega is the track where you don’t have any control, particularly sitting on pit road. So much can happen. The driver’s got to be smart, and there can’t be any lapses. Even if there aren’t, he’s just in the hands of fate out there.”

The model of consistency in the 2011 Chase, Edwards and crew have turned it on down the stretch to the tune of eight straight top-10 finishes. Talladega and Martinsville loom, though. The 29 team’s Chase M.O. in 2010 was to notch respectable finishes at tracks it historically struggled at. It’s doing so once again in 2011, and Talladega and Martinsville play to Harvick’s strengths. Back in a daunting hole, the 48 team has to be spot-on going forward. Were it any other bunch, you’d have to count them out. This is not, however, just “any other bunch.” A silent assassin, Kenseth has averaged a 10th-place finish in the last 12 races dating back to the Brickyard in late July. Speed plus consistency find him squarely in the title mix. Busch has done just enough — punctuated by a runner-up finish at Charlotte — to remain a factor in the Chase. One of those classic Rowdy victories would work wonders right now. A 20th at Dover and a 16th in Charlotte have set this team back 25 points in the Chase standings. There’s no longer any room for error for this wild card team. The potential is certainly still there, and at 24 points out, Smoke is within striking distance. There are still a bunch of laps to be run. Credit Kahne and the Red Bull team for not giving up. With Kahne out the door at season’s end and the team’s future in a state of limbo it’d be easy to throw in the towel. No one has. Did Gordon and the 24 team expend all their energy just getting to the Chase? Hard to say, but since the playoffs started, things just have not gone their way. Bowyer’s roller coaster season continues. Maybe a shot of 5-Hour Energy with his morning Cheerios would help on race day. Another team that refuses to quit despite not being in the playoffs. That says something. The same issues bite this group every week. Makes you think 12 teams are too many for the Chase. Charlotte was a microcosm of Biffle’s 2011 season. Concerted effort must be made to finish strong, a la Carl Edwards, 2010. Rode “Cookies for Kid’s Cancer” car to 10th-place finish. Good man, Ryan Newman.

that last 150 laps or whatever to get back to the lead. “I had fun racing with Kyle (Busch) there. We had a pretty decent restart — the second to last one — and got by Denny (Hamlin) and Carl, and ran Kyle down and it was tough to get by him. I’m glad we could make it happen because it was, like I said, it was challenging.” Edwards is rounding into form after a relatively quiet regular season. His third-place showing was his eighth straight top-10 run. He is the only Chase driver to have scored a top 10 in all five playoff races, and admitted that the Charlotte event was the one he and his No. 99 team looked at with some apprehension. “We had this one circled on the schedule as one that our whole Aflac team was nervous about,” Edwards said. “We were not that fast at the beginning of the race and Bob (Osborne, crew chief) did a really good job dialing it in. “The car and the track kind of came to us, so just overall, a really good night for Roush Fenway.” Despite the continued showing of strength out of the Roush Fenway


The sport of auto racing lost a champion last Sunday when Dan Wheldon was fatally injured in a crash on the eleventh lap of the IZOD IndyCar season finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Wheldon, 33, was the 2005 series champion and two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (2005, ’11). His Indy 500 victory in May was one of the more memorable, as he passed JR Hildebrand — who was piloting a car driven by Wheldon last season — when Hildebrand crashed on the final lap. The 500 was his only start of the 2011 season prior to Sunday’s event, which would have paid him a $5 million bonus had he won. Wheldon was scheduled to replace Danica Patrick in the Andretti Autosport ride in 2012. Wheldon, a native of England and resident of St. Petersburg, Fla., is survived by his wife, Susie, and two boys — two-year-old Sebastian and 17-month-old Oliver.

shop, the story of the night was Johnson’s wreck, which came while racing Ryan Newman with 16 laps remaining. Johnson’s Chevy got loose exiting Turn 2 and hooked right, plowing head-on into the SAFER barrier. It was a scary accident that left the defending five-time champ shaken, but otherwise unhurt. “That one stung for sure,” Johnson said. “I’m just thankful to have safe race cars, safe walls, softer walls. Everything did its job. It was a pretty big impact.” As for the daunting 35-point championship hole he finds himself in with five races remaining, Johnson’s resolve remains undeterred. “We just have to go racing. That’s all there is to it. There are five races left, and right now all we have are those five races. This definitely was not the night we wanted. This is not going to help us win a sixth championship. “But I promise you: this team and myself, we won’t quit. We will go for every point we can from here on out and hopefully we are still champions at the end of the year.”

I Eleven NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams from eight operations participated in a electronic fuel injection test on Monday at Charlotte Motor

Speedway. Teams from Hendrick Motorsports, Stewart-Haas Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, Richard Childress Racing, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, Michael Waltrip Racing and NEMCO Motorsports participated in the session. Of note was Kasey Kahne climbing behind the wheel of a Hendrick Chevrolet for the first time. Kahne will replace Mark Martin in the No. 5 car next season. “The EFI engine is definitely a little bit different,” Kahne said. “We were just trying to figure that out in how it runs, where it runs at different RPMs and things throughout the corners. … The power, on and off throttle, the stuff you feel with your foot and the way the engine reacts to your foot, to me that was the biggest difference.”

Classic Moments Talladega Superspeedway Local legend has it that the ground Talladega Superspeedway is built on was cursed by a medicine man from a tribe of Native Americans that were driven from its valley. It’s hard to argue this theory — as strange occurrences have been the norm here throughout the years, from driver boycotts to car sabotage to drivers hearing voices inside their cars. The inaugural event in 1969 is boycotted by most of the top drivers of the time due to safety concerns. A newly formed (yet short-lived) drivers’ union, led by Richard Petty, cites tire issues associated with speeds as the reason. The race goes on with “scrubs,” however, and is won by Richard Brickhouse. Thus begins a pattern of drivers getting their first and/or only career win at Talladega.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Good luck here, but it’s probably Jimmie’s turn to push Junior. Pretty Solid Pick: He hasn’t won at Talladega, but Kurt Busch certainly has a knack for avoiding the big wreck here. Sometimes that’s fantasy gold. Good Sleeper Pick: Ah, to be young and hungry. Right Mr. Keselowski? Runs on Seven Cylinders: Mark Martin and Ryan Newman are known for their dislike of the place. Insider Tip: A total crapshoot. Right place, right time; right push at the end.

Anna invades Versailles for key matchup The Tigers are a passhappy bunch, with quarterback Nick Campbell throwing for 2,116 yards so far. And he has fourreceivers who have 20 or more catches, led by Mitch Campbell with 41, 11 for touchdowns. “They’re really good,” said Rioch of the Tigers. “Their skilled kids are great and anytime you spread the ball out like that and have several quality skill kids, you’re going to find a mismatch somewhere. There are a lot of merits to what

they do on offense. Personally, I don’t buy into it.

Redskins face overmatched opponent again FORT LORAMIE — It’s deja vu for the Fort Loramie Redskins this week — they play a overmatched vastly team and will win by whatever margin head coach Matt Burgbacher chooses. So the coach approached this week the same way he did last week against a one-win Troy Christian team — just get better. “We just have to work to get better,” said Burgbacher, whose team travels to Dayton Jefferson to face the winless Broncos. “And we have some areas where we can improve, certainly. And those are the areas we will focus on.” Jefferson has been outscored 338-84 this season, and its closest game came a few weeks ago when it lost to Troy Christian 20-14. “This week won’t be any different from last week,” said Burgbacher. “We need to work on making our weaknesses stronger.” Last week, against Troy Christian, Burgbacher said he wanted to work on the passing game early, and he really

stuck to that approach. The first 15 plays Fort Loramie ran were pass plays. “We wanted to come out those first two quarters and play hard,” he said. “And we wanted to throw the ball. Once it got up over 30 (lead), we stopped throwing the ball, but we got what we wanted out of it.” The Redskins have two opponents left that aren’t expected to challenge them, although the season-ender with Lehman is a big rivalry match where anything can happen. Once those two games are out of the way, the Redskins can look to the postseason in Division VI. “This is an opportunity to get some kids some rest and get some younger kids some playing time this week,” he said. “We’ve been able to work on things the last two weeks that you don’t normally get a chance to work on this time of the year. It’s just little things, but doing those things are what make good football teams.”

He was also second in on-base percentage at .682 and second in runs batted in with 47. Fort Loramie’s Kyle Bollheimer was fifth in batting with a .561 average, and Sidney’s Connor Echols ninth with a .527 average.

Long has really stepped up his game and Nick Reier is playing well, too. Offensively, we will have to establish the run. If we can sustain a drive and keep them off the field, and score at the other end, that will be big. And turnovers, I can’t say how big they’re going to be.” Rioch said he thought his team played its most complete game of the season last week in routing St. Henry 40-0. The Rockets have outscored their last three opponents 108-20.

“I know obviously we have to win to have a chance to get in and if we lose we’re out. That’s all you need to know. The attitude this week is that this is a playoff game.” Versailles comes into the game with a 6-2 record, and is coming off a big win over Minster last week, 21-20. The Tigers’ losses have come to Coldwater and Delphos St. John’s. Anna, 5-3, has lost to those two teams and Marion Local. Versailles does not play Marion this season.

Bye week County spikers advance welcomed by Buckeyes RUSTY MILLER AP Sports Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Things are quiet around Ohio State these days. That’s a good thing. a For change, the Buckeyes have had only light practices in their bye week. And there were no uncomfortable NCAA questions, no talk about suspensions, no reminders of their three painful losses. Instead, the Buckeyes took time to heal their many bumps and bruises — the physical ones accumulated through seven games and the emotional ones from a year of turmoil and change. They also reflected on where they’ve been and where they’re headed. “You’ve always got to look at yourself. That’s what you do when you have some extra time,” interim coach Luke Fickell said. “You do those evaluations of yourself and what you’ve done in the first few games. We have a good assessment of that, but sometimes when you really step back and go back and watch it you get a different feel.” After some self-analysis, the Buckeyes (4-3, 12 Big Ten) begin looking ahead to a mammoth showdown with No. 4 Wisconsin on Oct. 29 that can make or break their season. “We’ll take this off week and heal up our bodies a little bit,” linebacker Storm Klein said. “Then we’re getting right after Wisconsin.” The Badgers are light years from having a week off. They’ve got a trip to No. 15 Michigan State — the only team to beat them in the regular season last fall — on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes are still basking in their biggest win of the season, a 17-7 victory at No. 16 Illinois on Saturday. In that game, the defense did its job and the offense stole a page from the Ohio State teams of the 1950s and ‘60s. Of the Buckeyes’ 55 plays, they passed on just four, completing one. That proportion was just fine with the guys at the non-skill positions

on offense. “As an offensive line, you like that a lot — when you’re running the ball and (the defense) knows it,” said Mike Adams, a left tackle who made his second appearance of the season after sitting out the first five games for accepting cash and discounted or free tattoos that kicked off a lengthy NCAA investigation. “You kind of just go out there and say, ‘Well, stop me.’ We always say football is a game of momentum and that’s definitely a way to get momentum on your side, to run the ball all over a defense.” Fullback Zach Boren was as surprised as anyone when the coaches just kept sending in running play after running play. “Going into it, during the week, we were throwing the ball a lot and spreading it out and stuff like that,” Boren said. “It’s one of the those things that when you get into the game the plays keep getting called and we were running the ball so we just kept at it. It’s getting into the game flow and feeling what you’re most comfortable with and just going with it.” Fickell made no apologies for the ground assault against the unbeaten previously Illini. “I’m excited we got the win and we got it any way we could,” he said, citing his team adapting to the strong winds that buffeted Memorial Stadium. “Whether it was the weather conditions, or how the game was going, that’s what we stuck with.” Still, he recognizes that the Buckeyes cannot continue to hand the ball off every play. Eventually a defense will put enough people in the right positions to shut down the running game. Then Ohio State will be forced to pass. “Obviously, we’ve got to get more balance and we’ll do a better job at that,” he said. “There were more passes called and there were some situations that obviously didn’t end up being a pass, but we know there’s got to be more balance but we’re excited about the result. And that’s the most important thing.”

Browns’ CB Hayden improving BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns cornerback Joe Haden did some light jogging on his sprained left knee and said his status for Sunday’s game against Seattle is “up in the air.” Haden, the Browns’ top defensive back, injured his knee on Oct. 2 while making a tackle against Tennessee and missed last week’s game at Oakland. He said Wednesday that his knee is progressing from daily treatments and hopes to be ready Sunday when the Browns (23) host the Seahawks (2-3). “It’s better,” Haden said. “Last week I couldn’t do any running. I wasn’t ready for it. But now I’m jogging on it and

just doing a whole lot of treatment — eight hours just trying to get it right.” Haden said this is the first time he had a knee injury. Haden’s injury isn’t the only one troubling the Browns, who have been dealing with major medical issues all season. They may also be without running back Peyton Hillis and linebacker Scott Fujita this week. Hillis strained his left hamstring during Sunday’s loss at Oakland while Fujita sustained a concussion. Hillis did not practice Wednesday and was not in the locker room with his teammates afterward.

BOE meets with public about school levy BOTKINS — The Botkins Local School Board of Education held a public meeting recently to discuss the November bond levy. If passed, the 7.99 mill, 35-year bond issue will raise $6,954,389 in local funds. These funds will be paired with the share of state’s $17,473,917 to construct a new school, as well as provide additional parking and improvements at the existing 1990 gymnasium. If passed, the tax would amount to $0.799 for each one hundred dollars of tax valuation. In addition, there is a 0.5 mill Classroom Facilities Maintenance Levy which is required by Ohio School Facilities Commission. This levy would replace the current 0.5 mill building assistance levy which will expire in 2016. If passed, the levy would not be collected until after the current levy expires and would run for 23 years. The school district cites major problems like

roof replacement, electrical system repairs, heating system repairs and fire alarm system repairs as major problems with the current building. The repair estimates for the roof exceeds $1.3 million, estimates for the electrical system are $1.990 million, the heating system estimates are reported to be $3.5 million and the fire alarm repairs are estimated at $170,000.

Anna school board discusses five-year forecast ANNA — The fiveyear forecast was discussed during a recent Anna Local Schools Board of Education meeting. Treasurer Dennis Raberding presented the five-year forecast for expenditures and receipts of the general fund in fiscal years 12 through 16. For the first time in several years, the forecast shows the school with an increasing year end balance. In the current school year, the Anna School District is collecting the income tax that was passed last August. Additionally, the amount the school pays in salaries has decreased from last year due to staff reductions. After discussing both the revenue and expenditure sections of the forecast, the school board took action to adopt it as presented. John Holtzapple, elementary principal, summarized the outcome of Visitors’ Day lunch. The day was a huge success due to the efforts of the elementary staff with


1,240 lunches served. Holtzapple also informed the board of the upcoming fifth-grade Camp Wilson Trip and of the recent administration of the third-grade reading achievement test. Rick Russell, high school principal, reminded the board of the eighth-grade trip to Washington, D.C., and reviewed tournament draw assignments for the soccer and volleyball teams. At the conclusion of his report, the board approved an out-of-state trip for members of the FFA to attend the national convention in Indianapolis., Ind. Andy Bixler, superintendent, reminded the board of the Ohio School Board Association Capital Conference on Nov. 14 and 15. The board of education reviewed proposed updates to the Anna Local Schools Board Policy Manual to maintain compliance with changes in both state and federal law. At the conclusion of the review, the board adopted the policies as presented.


The real estate transfers listed below have been recorded at the office of Shelby County Recorder Jodi L. Siegel. Transfers listed also include tax-exempt property transfers in which no dollar amount is listed. Shelby County Auditor Denny York said the exemptions normally involve transactions within a family and therefore no public record of the dollar amount is recorded. Dinsmore Township Kenneth L. Grey, deceased, to Sue Ann Schaub, section 30, north 1/2 east 1/2 northeast 1/4 exceptional, 40 acres; section 18, south 1/2 west 1/2 southeast 1/4 exceptional, 40 acres, north 1/2 west 1/2 southeast 1/4 exceptional, 40 acres, and east 1/2 northeast 1/4 southwest 1/4, 20.375 acres; exempt.

Bixler also reviewed the results of an energy benchmark process performed by Fanning and Howey. The process showed that the Anna Elementary School qualifies for Energy Star Rating for being extremely efficient while the middle and high school building is in the average range of efficiency. The board also discussed the status of the elementary roof and the pending need to replace it. The board awarded supplemental contracts as presented. The board then moved into executive session before adjourning. The next regular meeting is set for Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m.

Church plans smorgasbord ANNA — The Anna United Methodist Church, 201 W. North St., will host a smorgasbord in its fellowship hall Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Proceeds will support the church’s building fund.

TIM ZIMPFER, Anna Agricultural Education instructor, teaches students about crop yields.

Anna FFA members get hands-on learning ANNA — The Anna FFA Chapter is renting 32 acres of farm ground from the Anna Local Schools as a hands-on learning opportunity. Students have been working toward the fall harvest in many different ways. Last fall, students interested in being part of the farm decisions met on a weekly basis to talk about costs associated with the plot as well as marketing techniques and strategies. This spring, students worked with local seed dealers and fertilizer/spray companies to secure necessary supplies for the plot. Students were able to

secure 35 different varieties of seed corn from eight different seed companies. The goal is to give students the opportunity to be involved with all decisions and aspects of a small faming operation. Students will be working closely with the local Young Farmers Organization to line up equipment to plant and harvest the crop as well as to till the ground. On June 6 FFA members, a member of the Young Farmers, and Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed spent the day planting a test plot. With the help from the Young

Farmers, this fall when the crop matures the FFA will harvest the crop. Each variety will be weighed and analyzed for moisture, test weight and yield. Students will then take grain to a local elevator and sell it. The FFA will receive a check for the corn and pay the bills associated with raising it. Assisting the FFA students in this project were the following: Anna Local Schools, Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed, Fennig & Homan Agribusiness, Trupointe, CPS, Golden Harvest, Pioneer, Mycogen, Agrigold and Zimpfer Farms (equipment).

State service changes get OK choose assisted living facilities as a long-term care setting. Additionally, the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) awarded Ohio a threeyear grant to enhance and integrate care systems. CMS recently approved the Ohio Department of Aging’s revised guidelines for the state’s Assisted Living Waiver Program that remove a requirement that a person must have either been a resident of a nursing home for at least six months or receiving services in another Medicaid waiver

program. A second change allows consumers to begin receivassisted living ing services while their Medicaid eligibility is being determined. Ohio was one of four states funded by AoA to demonstrate how to transform state systems to provide consumers with simplified and streamlined access to needed services.

Center board hears statistics The Senior Center of Sidney and Shelby County Board of Directors met recently. Director David McKay informed the board of the two computers now available for the members to use. The software has voice recognition, magnifies print and reads existing documents. This is especially helpful for people with low vision, he said. The quarter auction is tonight at 6 p.m. at the senior center. Paddles used for bidding will be $2 each. The doors will open at 5 p.m. Food will be available for purchase. The statistics for September show that Outreach helped nine seniors, 42 volunteers donated 401.5 hours, and 11 people joined the senior center to make a total of 967 paid members. Duplicated participation was 3,313, unduplicated participation was 1,050 and the average daily participation was 158. Possible changes for existing programs were discussed. One change is to have chair volleyball

Shelby County Alzheimer’s Support Group Meeting



COLUMBUS — Ohio’s innovative, evidence-based approach to delivering aging and disability supports has garnered the support of two federal agencies, giving Ohio the authority to offer increased assisted living options, as well as resources to accelerate the overall transformation of the long-term care system. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved changes to Ohio’s Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver, which immediately gives more seniors the ability to

the mood of a lonely senior, and can also provide a sense of focus. • Become a pet owner. Studies show that the owners of pets can have blood pressure that is lower than that of people who don’t own pets. Companionship fosters positive feelings of self, and as we grow older seeking companionship, whether that of a friend or pet, gives us a sense of value and purpose.

Halloween is more enjoyable when safety is part of the holiday.

WAYS TO MAKE HALLOWEEN SAFER Halloween is a time for people young and old to enjoy a little mischief and mayhem. To make the holiday even more enjoyable, celebrants can heed a few tips to make Halloween as safe as it is pleasurable. 1. Use face paints instead of masks that obscure vision. 2. Wear reflective tape on costumes of dark colors for trick-or-treating at night. 3. LED lights or glow sticks are a safer alternative to lit candles. Some lights even flicker to offer the appeal of candles.

Remember to walk, and not run, between houses.

4. Trick-or-treat in a group; never alone. 5. Take a planned route and don’t wander off the path. 6. Be sure costumes are not tripping hazards. 7. Costume on young children should be age-appropriate and free of hazards, such as strings that can strangle or small parts that can choke. 8. Stick to trick-or-treating in trusted neighborhoods. 9. Be extra-cautious of cars when walking at night.

Cross streets only at corners, and stay on sidewalks whenever possible.
