Sidney, Ohio


Unemployment falls to 7% BY ANN SANNER Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate has dropped slightly to 7 percent after three consecutive months of holding steady at the same rate.

The state Department of Job and Family Services said Friday that seasonally adjusted joblessness in Ohio was 7 percent in September, down from 7.2 percent in August. The state’s unemployment rate remains below the na-

tional rate of 7.8 percent. The number of unemployed Ohio workers fell by about 7,000, from 413,000 in August to 406,000 last month. The state’s non-farm payrolls decreased by 12,800 compared with August’s figures.

Ohio saw job gains of more than 1,500 in professional and businesses services last month, while manufacturing lost about 6,400 jobs. Friday’s update on job numbers was the last that the swing state’s voters will see before the Nov. 6 election.

Students support injured classmate BY BETHANY J. ROYER Civitas Media PIQUA — The sentiment of leave no man, or in this case, woman, behind may best describe a very unique class at Edison Community College. “I don’t know of anybody who did not help in some way,” said Kathryn Jordan, Edison Physical Therapy Instructor, of her class. One she best describes in its entirety as being special, tight knit. “When I came in and told them what had happened, they immediately were ‘we are going to get her through, we are not losing her.’” Jordan was speaking about one of her students, Lea Tyler, 29, of Sidney, who was tubing at Indian Lake last June with her boyfriend, Mitch Haynes, and his family, when she was thrown off by a wake. Tyler hit the water with such force that she was left unconscious and everyone

LEA TYLER, of Sidney, is a physical therapy assistant program student at Edison Community College. She is recovering from a traumatic brain injury she suffered in a tubing accident. scrambling into the water to help bring her to the surface until help could arrive. The severity of her injuries re-

quired her to be flown via helicopter to St. Rita’s in Lima during what was the very beginning of Tyler’s third se-

mester in the Physical Therapy Assistant program at Edison. On news of the accident, Tyler’s PTA classmates and instructor immediately began to put together a plan to keep her up-to-speed in the class, unaware of the full extent of her injuries. At least they were unaware until nine students and Jordan went to visit Tyler at the hospital a few days after the accident, and were shocked by her condition. Their plans seemingly were for naught, when they found her suffering a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and paralyzed from the neck down. “She could not find words for toilet, bed,” said Jordan. “She was a lot worse off than we initially thought.” However, the thought of one of their own not graduating was not something the Edison PTA students were willing to accept as they See INJURED/Page 5A

Children learn how to stay safe online BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN Children from throughout Shelby County have been learning how to be safe and secure online thanks to a program in participating schools this week that has been sponsored by the Sidney Daily News and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. Presented by volunteer members of (ISC)2, called ISC squared, who are cyber security experts, the program has been presented to children in grades 1 through 8 at Sidney City, Holy Angels and Jackson Center schools. The Christian Academy and Botkins schools will welcome presenters next week. The project marks October’s designation as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. “How many of you have a

Facebook account?” presenter Brian Rappach, of Dayton, asked an assembly of Northwood Elementary School students. More than 50 hands went into the air. None of them belonged to youngsters who were older than 13, the legal age to create an account on Facebook. Some of the children were as young as 7. “I’ve done this program several times,” Rappach told the Daily News, “but I’m still surprised at how many young kids are on the computer, on the Internet every day.” Rappach, Kim LaPole, of Huber Heights, Aaron Fogle, of Cincinnati, and Nick Jenkins, of Englewood, showed a PowerPoint video that addresses cyber bullying, password sharing, gaming, social networking, and geotracking.

ZBA recommends conversion of dwelling Sidney’s Zoning Board of Appeals Monday afternoon recommended City Council approve the conversion of a two-family dwelling at 333 Third Ave. into a single-family, community business district residence. The property, a legal resinonconforming dence, is owned by Roy and Carol Asbury, 445 Apollo St., who requested the change. Barbara Dulworth, community services director, told board members the Asburys propose to remove the

eastern 24 feet of the structure, which is one of the two units, to create a single-family dwelling and construct an 8-by14-foot addition. She said the property is at the border of the B2 business district with commercial uses to the south and west and residential uses to the north. “While the property is located in the business district, it would not be out of place as a singlefamily dwelling in the neighborhood,” she said. The board approved the proposed demolition and conversion after finding the change will not be detrimental to

public welfare or alter the vicinity’s land-use characteristics. The board also recommended favorably a request by Elite Enclosures for a business directional sign variance for the business at 2345 Industrial Drive and determined a smallengine-repair business is an appropriate use in the B-2 community business district. Doug Pottorf, Elite Enclosures LLC president, explained the signage was being requested to solve a problem for both Quality Steel Fabrication at 2339 Industrial Drive

and his company, since people were stopping daily at Quality Steel to ask directions to Elite Enclosure. Dulworth told the board Elite is located to the rear of the other business and is not clearly visible from Industrial Drive due to arrangement of the lot, drive and adjacent building. “There is no good location at the street entrance to locate a detached permanent sign,” she said. Directional signs are not intended to be used to advertise or draw attention to a business.

They screened videos made in Great Britain that show kids sharing inappropriate photos of a classmate and cyber bullying another for knowing the answers to a teacher’s questions. In the latter, the online teasing grows to include death threats and is stopped only when the victim’s mother inadvertently finds a video on her son’s camera. Then the police showed up at school. “Do you think that the police should have been involved?” Fogle asked students at Jackson Center at the end of the film. “Yes!” came the loud chorus in return. “You’re right,” Fogle said. “Absolutely they should be involved.” LaPole quizzed Sidney Middle Schoolers about sharing their passwords. She showed a slide which told the story of Ben, a boy who gave his email password to his best friend. Then, the two boys had an argument. Ben’s ex-friend got online and sent nasty messages to people Ben knew. When Ben got to school the next day, everyone was angry because they thought he had sent the messages. “How many of you think you and your BFF will be best friends forever?” LaPole asked. “You may not be, even though you can’t imagine that now.” “The only people you should ever share your passwords with are your parents,” Fogle echoed in another school. The Safe and Secure Online program is pre-

But even local teachers reached for their smart phones when Rappach discussed geotracking, a default application that embeds location coordinates in photos that are taken with the devices. “If you use your phone to take a picture of someone or something at your house and then post the photo online, on FaceBook or Twitter, the location of where you took that photo can be retrieved by someone looking at the photo online. What’s wrong with that?” he asked. “They’ll know where you live,” piped a young voice. “Right!” Rappach agreed. The interactive sessions end with a review of the points that have been made: • Don’t trust someone you don’t know, even if you’ve been online with him for a long time. • If something seems wrong or bad, tell an adult and tell the local police or sheriff. • Don’t participate in cyber bullying. Tell an adult if you know bullying is taking place. • Think before you post anything online: “Is this something you want your parents to see, your teachers to see, everyone in the whole world to see? If the answer is no, don’t post it. What you post will be there forever.” • Protect your privacy and that of others. Don’t post personal information online.

DAYTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will return to battleground Ohio next week a day after his final debate with Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Campaign officials say Obama plans to join Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday at a campaign event in Dayton. Biden is making a three-day swing through

Page 5A

Ohio starting on Monday. The campaign says he’ll speak at events in Canton and Lorain. Also on Tuesday, he’ll visit the University of Toledo. Details of Biden’s stops on Wednesday have yet to be released. With less than three weeks left before Election Day, Obama and Romney are spending a lot of time in the prized swing state.

Sidney Police, with the assistance Ohio S t a t e Highway Patrol, arrested a suspect Friday morning after he a t tempted Harris to disarm the officer trying to take him into custody. According to police, officers were dispatched around 9 a.m. to 224 S. Franklin Ave., for a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, the female victim told officers the suspect’s name and said he was armed with a knife. Officers were familiar with the suspect, Allen R. Harris, 39, at large.

He also had an outstanding warrant. Harris was located nearby, and when the officer attempted to take him into custody, “the suspect initiated a physical altercation with the officer and attempted to disarm him,” according to a release provided by Capt. Rod Austin, of the Sidney Police Department. Harris was taken into custody with the help of highway patrol officers who were in the area. He is currently being held in the Shelby County Jail on charges of contempt (disorderly conduct), obstructing official business and resisting arrest. There were no injuries reported from the incident, and it remains under investigation.

INJURED turned to their instructor for advice. “I just looked at them. I don’t think she’s going to be able to stay in class, it’s that bad,” said Jordan of that moment when she realized it would take a miracle to turn the situation around, and that Tyler would more than likely have to sit out of the class for a year. That is a situation that usually spells doom for any student having to return the following year and pick up where they left off. Most do not make it to graduation under such circumstances. However, the PTA class was undaunted and began to pool their resources, designing study cards and making videos. Sixteen days into Tyler’s stay at the Lima hospital, Jordan went for another visit. “She had been moved to the (Neuro) rehab, I knocked on the door and she said ‘come in,’” said Jordan who was greeted by Tyler jumping up from her hospital bed, doing a little dance, before she hugged her instructor. Beth Classmate Weaver also was in the room, the two having conspired to surprise their instructor with Tyler’s miraculous recovery. “I really don’t remember a whole lot until a week before I was released,” said Tyler of her stay in ICU before being transferred to the neurorehab, stating she was told she had had the mentality of a 4-year old for a time and suffered with right-side paralysis. According to Jordan, doctors at St. Rita’s were amazed by Tyler’s rapid recovery, with her doctor encouraging her to continue with her PTA studies. This is where the true spirit of Edison comes into play as the PTA classmates were willing to do whatever it took to help Tyler make up for lost time. Their goal was to get her back on track so as to graduate with them. Whether it was driving to Lima with study materials or to Sidney after Tyler’s eventual release from the hospital. “She was so motivated, they were so motivated,” said Jordan of Tyler and the PTA students. While Jordan described Weaver as pivotal in Tyler’s studies, “I do have to say the entire class did something,” said Jordan as Tyler would only be two weeks behind when clinicals began over the summer. For Tyler, the accident has given her both an appreciation for the enormous outpouring of support and a rather

unique perspective into the struggles of her future patients. “I’ve kind of gotten this huge sense of humility since being in the hospital,” said Tyler as she was dependent on others to help her with things many take for granted such as showering, using the restroom, and simply getting around during her stay at the hospital. “It’s kind of given me a bigger sense of how I would treat my patients in the hospital and the respect and privacy that they would need.” Tyler originally became interested in physical therapy after working in a therapy office as a patient service specialist. “I absolutely loved it,” said Tyler of the work experience. She is currently in clinicals at Mercer Hospital in Coldwater, under the full-time supervision of a physical therapist or PT assistant, finding the fast-paced, out and in-patient work a lot of fun. The clinicals proved to be not only a necessary learning experience as part of the PTA class, but one that helped Tyler on a personal level. As during her summer clinical at St. Henry PTA Services, she was both a student and a patient under the direction of the physical therapists. “That was phenomenal of that clinical site to do that, they didn’t have to do that,” said Jordan who received permission from Tyler to make her PTA Services instructor aware of the situation. At the end of this month Tyler will be back in the Edison classroom, one filled with those who helped keep her on the road to success. While she still has some challenges related to the accident, the help from not only her classmates but a number of friends, family in Piqua, Haynes and his family; all were instrumental in helping her progress towards graduation in May where she will receive a degree in Associate of Applied Science (AAS). One she hopes to use in pediatrics or the military, preferably in the Miami County area as her daughter, 5-year-old Chloe, has friends here and their family is here, too. “It’s been a rough year,” said Tyler, as not only has she had the recovery from her accident, but Chloe was diagnosed with diabetes in March. Friends have helped her here, too, such as attending a diabetes walk with her. “So many that has helped me through, they just helped whenever I needed it. It’s been rough but they all got me through it.”

Marion Vonderhuevel Who passed away 2 years ago 10-21-2010

SAFELY HOME I am home in Heaven, dear ones; Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty In this everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, Safely home in Heaven at last. Did you wonder I so calmly Trod the valley of the shade? Oh! but Jesus’ love illuminated Every dark and fearful glade. And He came Himself to meet me In that way so hard to tread; And with Jesus’ arm to lean on, Could I have one doubt or dread? Then you must not grieve so sorely, For I love you dearly still; Try to look beyond earth’s shadows; Pray to trust our Father’s Will. There is work still waiting for you, So you must not idly stand; Do it now, while life remaineth You shall rest in Jesus’ land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you Home; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you come! Loving Memories, Loving wife Betty and Family

the ground just seconds after the shooting. “I didn’t want to get too close,” he told the Akron Beacon Journal. “Those people had rifles.” The center includes three galleries that cover the social movements of the 1960s, the Vietnam War and the shootings and their aftermath. It also includes a map showing the 132 college campuses where protests occurred between April 30 and May 4 after President Richard Nixon announced an escalation of the war. A timeline and a short film help recreate the May 4 events. Jerry Lewis, a sociology professor who witnessed the shootings and has researched and lectured about May 4, told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer that the center is opening at the right time. “It took time to reflect on it and deal with it,” Lewis, 76, said.

Autumn plowing


PARMA (AP) — Only Bruce Springsteen could turn former President Bill Clinton into the warm-up act. The two rock stars — one a political star and the other a real rocker — shared the stage Thursday to whip up supporters at a rally for President Barack Obama in a Cleveland suburb. While the president wasn’t a part of the event, there was no shortage of enthusiasm. “This election is coming down to the end,” Clinton said. “It’s pretty straightforward.” Later, Clinton headed to Wintersville in far eastern Ohio, where he led a rally for Obama. In the earlier appearance, Clinton told a crowd of about 3,000 at Cuyahoga Community College that Obama deserves credit for keeping the nation from sliding into a depression and saving the auto industry that employs so many in Ohio. “When we were down the president had your back, you’ve got to have his back,” Clinton told the crowd. “This is not complicated. If somebody saved my economy, I’d be for him.” With the presidential race zeroing in on Ohio and less than three weeks left before Election Day, Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are spending a lot of time in the prized swing state and counting on some big names to build up enthusiasm. Romney already has brought country singers Jo Dee Messina and Rodney Atkins to the state, where polls show Obama holding onto a slight lead. Springsteen, making his debut on the 2012 campaign trail after vowing he wouldn’t get involved, said he came to Ohio to support Obama because he implemented universal health care and cares about the rights of women. “I’m thankful GM is still making cars,” Springsteen said in between in a mix of songs that included a version of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” and his own song, “Youngstown,” a tribute



NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, Oct. 20, the 294th day of 2012. There are 72 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 20, 2011, Moammar Gadhafi, 69, Libya’s dictator for 42 years, was killed as revolutionary fighters overwhelmed his hometown of Sirte (surt) and captured the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell. On this date: ■ In 1740, Maria Theresa became ruler of Austria, Hungary and Bohemia upon the death of her father, Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI. ■ In 1803, the U.S. Senate ratified the Louisiana Purchase. ■ In 1903, a joint commission ruled largely in favor of the United States in a boundary dispute between the District of Alaska and Canada. ■ In 1944, during World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur stepped ashore at Leyte (LAY’-tee) in the Philippines, 2 years after saying, “I shall return.” ■ In 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee opened hearings into alleged Communist influence and infiltration in the U.S. motion picture industry. ■ In 1964, the 31st president of the United States, Herbert Hoover, died in New York at age 90. ■ In 1967, seven men were convicted in Meridian, Miss., of violating the civil rights of three slain civil rights workers. ■ In 1968, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. ■ In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon signed into law the General Revenue Sharing Act, which allocated $30 billion over five years to state and local governments. ■ In 1973, in the socalled “Saturday Night Massacre,” special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox was dismissed and Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William B. Ruckelshaus resigned. ■ In 1981, a bungled armored truck robbery carried out by members of radical groups in Nanuet, N.Y., left a guard and two police officers dead.


You can’t keep a good dog down PARIS (AP) — A Jack Russell terrier has survived after being poisoned and buried alive — and he can thank the man who saw the ground wiggle. Ethan came back to life on his third birthday after someone tried to kill him. He had a whole chain of saviors: the man who dug him up, the firefighters who rushed him off and a veterinarian who nursed him back to life. Sabrina Zamora, president of an animal association in Charleville-Mezieres, 200 kilometers (125 miles) northeast of Paris, said Friday the little white dog with a black ear was “flat as a pancake” when he was dug up from his grave Tuesday near a lakeside pedestrian path. “It's extraordinary. We only see this in TV movies,” said veterinarian Philippe Michon. “He came back to life and without a scratch. It’s rather miraculous.”

Big Tex goes up in flames BY DANNY ROBBINS Associated Press DALLAS (AP) — The man who provides the voice for Big Tex, the giant cowboy at the State Fair of Texas, was greeting people with his usual “Howdy, folks!” in a slow drawl Friday when someone rushed into his trailer to tell him the towering fair icon was on fire. “It moved quickly,” Bill Bragg said of the fire that engulfed the 52-foot-tall structure, leaving not much more than its charred metal frame behind. “It was a quick end.” This year’s fair was supposed to be a celebration for Big Tex, marking his 60th birthday. Instead, the beloved cowboy was hauled from the grounds on a flatbed truck two days before the end of the fair in a procession resembling a funeral. “It’s sad to see this happen, but it’s lucky no one was injured or killed,” said Mike Blucher of Dallas, who was at the fair with his wife, Linda. The fire brought a temporary end to a piece of Texas culture. The cowboy with the 75gallon hat and 50-pound belt buckle always was easy to spot and served as a popular meeting place for people coming to the fair or attending the annual Texas-Oklahoma football game at the nearby Cotton Bowl. But all that remained by noon Friday were hands and shirt sleeves on a burned skeleton. “Big Tex is a symbol of everything the state fair stands for,” fair spokeswoman Sue Gooding said. “Big Tex is

where my parents told me, ‘If you get lost, meet at Big Tex.’” Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Joel Lavender said Friday afternoon that the cause of the blaze had not been determined. Some dispatchers took a playful approach to reporting the blaze. “Got a rather tall cowboy with all his clothes burned off,” one said. “Howdy,

folks, it’s hot,” another said. Fair officials and city leaders quickly called for the return of Big Tex, vowing to rebuild the structure. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings tweeted that the cowboy would become “bigger and better for the 21st Century.” Big Tex’s hands, boots and face were made of Fiberglas, Gooding said. The clothing

that burned had been provided last year by a Fort Worth company, she said. Gooding speculated that the fire could have started in mechanical workings at the base of the structure and that the metal skeleton “served as a chimney.” The skeleton will be evaluated, and a new one will be built if necessary, she said. Stanley Hill, who supervises a food stand that has been located near the structure for 18 years, said he noticed smoke coming from Big Tex’s neck area. That quickly turned into a blaze that engulfed the structure’s fabric covering. “Once it started burning, it was gone,” Hill said. The structure was removed Friday in essentially the same way workers put it up every year — with a crane that slowly lowers it. Only this time, the steel skeleton was covered with a tarp. Big Tex was actually built in 1949 as a giant Santa Claus for a Christmas celebration in Kerens, 60 miles south of Dallas. Intrigued by the idea of a towering cowboy, the State Fair paid $750 for the structure, which debuted as Big Tex in 1952. Big Tex is inextricably linked to the State Fair. The State Fair website is, and visitors to the site see their cursor turn into an image of Big Tex’s head, clad in a cowboy hat. The fair’s Twitter account features the cowboy’s image as well. “You know somebody’s a true Texan if you say ‘Big Tex’ and they don’t look at you like you’re weird,” Gooding said.

Top security official among 8 dead BY ELIZABETH A. KENNEDY Associated Press BEIRUT (AP) — A powerful car bomb tore through the heart of Beirut’s Christian sector Friday, killing a top security official and seven others in a devastating attack that threatened to bring the war in Syria directly to Lebanon’s doorstep. The blast sheared the balconies off apartment buildings, upended cars and sent dazed rescue workers carrying bloodied children into the streets. Dozens of people were wounded in the blast, the worst the Lebanese capital has seen in more than four years. The state-run news agency said the target was Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hassan, head of the intelligence division of Lebanon’s domestic security forces. Al-Hassan, 47, headed an investigation over the summer that led to the arrest of former Information Minister Michel Samaha, one of Syria’s

most loyal allies in Lebanon. “Whenever there is a problem in Syria, they want to bring it to us,” said Karin Sabaha Gemayel, a secretary at a law firm a block from the bombing site, where the street was turned into a swath of rubble, twisted metal and charred vehicles. “But you always hope it will not happen to us. Not again,” she said. Samaha is accused of plotting a campaign of bombings and assassinations in Lebanon at Syria’s behest, to spread sectarian violence in Lebanon. Also indicted in the August sweep was one of the highest aides to Syrian President Bashar Assad. A senior Lebanese police official, speaking anonymously because he was not authorized to talk to the media, said Samaha confessed to having personally transported explosives in his car from Syria to Lebanon with the purpose of killing Lebanese. Analysts said al-Hassan’s killing was a clear signal that

Lebanon cannot insulate itself from the Syrian conflict, which has been the most sustained and powerful challenge to the 40-year Assad family dynasty. “The regime in Damascus will look at his death with much comfort,” said Ayham Kamel, a Middle East analyst at the Eurasia Group in London. “One figure, hostile to Syria’s interests, is out of the picture.” In Washington, the Obama administration condemned “in the strongest terms” what it called a terrorist attack. National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said in a statement that there was “no justification for using assassination as a political tool,” adding that the U.S. would stand with the Lebanese government in bringing to justice those responsible “for this barbaric attack.” Friday’s blast also was a reminder of Lebanon’s grim history, when the 1975-1990 civil war made the country notori-

ous for kidnappings, car bombs and political assassinations. Since the war’s end, Lebanon has been a proxy battleground for regional conflict, and the Mediterranean seaside capital has been prey to devastating violence shattering periods of calm. Friday’s explosion ripped through a narrow street at midafternoon in Beirut’s mainly Christian Achrafieh neighborhood, an area packed with cafes and shops. Doors and windows were shattered for blocks, and several blackened cars appeared to have been catapulted through the air. Bloodied residents fled their homes while others tried to help the seriously wounded. One little girl, apparently unconscious and bleeding from her head, was carried to an ambulance in the arms of a rescue worker, her white sneakers stained with blood. Al-Hassan’s body was so disfigured in the blast that his bodyguards only recognized him from his sneakers, said a paramedic at the scene.

Ads keep abortion in campaign spotlight BY DAVID CRARY Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Though Barack Obama and Mitt Romney rarely tackle the topic of abortion head-on, the void is being filled by rival advocacy groups targeting swing states with ads depicting one or the other candidate as an extremist in his stance on the divisive issue. Obama, according to the National Right to Life Committee, is “the most pro-abortion president this country has ever seen.” Another antiabortion group, the Susan B. Anthony List, is running antiObama TV ads titled “Abortion Radical.” From the other side, groups supporting legal access to abortion, as well as the Obama campaign itself, depict Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, as eager to ban most abortions as part of a Republican “war on women.” The GOP ticket “is extremely dangerous to women’s health,” says Nancy

Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. Numerous polls indicate that abortion and other hotbutton social issues aren’t top priorities for most Americans as they worry about jobs and health care. Yet abortion is a visceral subject for some voters — and the extent to which they turn out to vote, and perhaps sway wavering acquaintances, could make a difference in pivotal swing states. There’s extra intensity this year because Obama and Romney — reflecting their party platforms — are so polarized in regard to abortion. Obama believes decisions about abortion should be left to women and their doctors. He affirmed this outlook during his acceptance speech at the Democratic convention, where the prime-time speakers included Keenan and Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Romney opposes abortion except in cases of rape, incest and threat to the mother’s life,

and says the Supreme Court should repeal the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a nationwide right to abortion. He also would end federal aid to Planned Parenthood, which is a major provider of abortion and contraception. “There are such sharp differences between the two candidates, it’s not surprising the advocacy groups are so engaged,” said Mark Rozell, a political science professor at George Mason University in the swing state of Virginia. “They think other voters must feel the same way.” Planned Parenthood, through its political action affiliates, has spent more on this election than any in the past — more than $12 million, with about half the money going for TV ads in Florida, Virginia, Ohio and other battleground states. Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said a large chunk of the funds had been donated by new contrib-

utors eager to fight back against Republican efforts to restrict abortion at the state and federal level. “People have woken up and said, ‘Not only are they serious, but they’re close to imposing their will on the women of America,’” Laguens said. Among the biggest spenders on the anti-abortion side is the Susan B. Anthony List. Along with its political action committees, it has reported more than $3 million in expenditures, including TV ads in Ohio, Virginia, Florida and Colorado. The group’s president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, said the ads seek to depict Obama as an extremist in regard to abortion and to woo undecided, socially conservative Democrats, including Hispanics. “It’s hard to argue that the ‘war on women’ theme has stuck,” Dannenfelser said. “The gender gap has closed since the first debate, and the women’s vote is the most fluid I’ve seen.”

Anna gardener to sell at church market It just didn’t have any flavor.” In the meantime I had discovered that a certain someone had bought self-rising flour, so all the added salt and baking soda washed out the flavor.” Tom smiled sheepishly, admitting his complicity in the isolated baking blunder. “She sent me to town to get flour. It said flour on it," he said, laughing. "I’m ignorant when it comes to that stuff.” Those errors have been blue-moon rare, and the response to her business after such a short time continues to amaze Jeanne, who uses her accounting degree from Edison Community College to track what sells. “It’s getting better all the time,” she said. Sales this year are feeding an expansion of her gardens, with six different plots wedged on their one-acre country lot. Their son, also named Tom, is building a greenhouse six feet wide and eight feet long, which will get Jeanne out of a cramped furnace room and give her more room to start seed for spinach, lettuce and peas in the winter and early spring. But getting the greenhouse back to Sidney was no easy feat. The Ceylers had ordered it from a home supply store near Dayton and, having seen a similar one in two boxes, decided to clear out space in their Nissan Versa to haul it back on one of their trips to see their grandson, Josh, in Miamisburg. Upon arriving at the store, they learned the greenhouse was in only one box, and that it was

twice as long as what they had expected. “I’m so glad I happened to bring bungee cords along. We had to drive north on I-75 going 55 miles an hour with that thing strapped to the roof,” she said. The trouble will have been worth it when she can go to the basement or the garage to “go shopping” from her pantry. Jeanne 66, provides recipes for much of the produce that she sells, aiding younger generations less accustomed to eating out of a garden as they navigate their way in the kitchen. Some of the recipes are taken from a collection of cook books, which she sells through her website, w w w. o l d p a r s o n a g e Along with an assortment of non-seasonal items, Ceyler hopes to have beets, green peppers, parsnips, green

beans, jalapenos, zucchini, eggplant and Swiss chard at the Third Saturday Market today. Other vendors will offer bread, pies, cookies,

jams and jellies, soap, crafts and many more items. To learn more about the Third Saturday Market, call 492-5025.

of Holy Angels High School and Tom, a 1967 alum of Sidney High School. After the downturn, Jeanne, ever the entrepreneur, sought another venture, and is now selling jam, baked good, produce and crafts in three different farmer’s markets including the Third Saturday Market at First Christian Church, 320 E. Russell Road, which opens its season today. During the summer, she also sells at the weekly markets in Sidney and Piqua, which have now ended for the year. Jeanne began selling at the Great Downtown Sidney Farmers Market after efforts to draw in roadside traffic weren’t as successful as she hoped. “We had a tent set up out by the road with vegetables and baked goods. That first day I sold a pie and thought, ‘This is good.’ But that was it,” she said. Jeanne said she didn’t sell anything else during a six-week period, so she started selling at the market in Sidney and, last year, in the inaugural season of the Third Saturday Market. She is scheduled to attend all of the latter scheduled markets through late May. Regulars have come to know her for certain items, like her jalapeno and pineapple jalapeno jams, just two of nearly three dozens flavors she makes. Word-of-mouth recommendations, as well as social media postings of her weekly inventory, have helped her bolster sales, she said. Though zucchini has a certain reputation for prospering no matter what, the market for Jeanne’s zucchini nut bread is strong, she said, so much so that when she experienced a rare issue in the kitchen, a regular customer pointed it out. “The guy came back to me and said, ‘What happened with that bread?


ANNA — When it comes to local food, it doesn’t come much more local than your own backyard. gardener When Jeanne Ceyler steps out behind her house on Ohio 119 west of Anna, she is immediately surrounded by plots of land that, at one time or another this year, were filled with broccoli, potatoes, onions, asparagus, rhubarb, and more than a dozen other vegetables. Ceyler, a “retired” antiques dealer, has been gardening and canning food for something like 45 years, she said, putting up as many as 500 jars of canned food annually when she and husband, Tom, had three teenagers in the house. In recent years, she has shared her skills in the garden and kitchen with the Shelby County community. Since May 2011, she has set up in local farmers’ markets as Jeanne’s Garden, building the business on the same local-food philosophy by which she and Tom have lived for many years. The Ceylers estimate that as much as 60 percent of the food they eat is grown, harvested or caught themselves. That includes strawberries that grow every year beneath each of the 14 fruit trees in their back yard, which provide apples, pears, plums, peaches, cherries and nectarines. They also enjoy walnuts, berries and other fruit harvested across the county, many of which find their way into the baked goods and jams that Jeanne has been making for sale to Shelby Countians the past 18 months. When the bottom fell out of the market in the Great Recession, so too did the market for Depression glass, a specialty market Ceyler had entered when she and Tom returned to Ohio in 1992 from Florida after Tom experienced a disabling accident. Both are native to the area: Jeanne, a 1964 graduate

Jobless rate falls in most battleground states BY JULIE PACE Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — Unemployment rates fell last month in nearly all of the battleground states that will determine the presidential winner, giving President Barack Obama fresh fodder to argue that voters should stick with him in an election focused squarely on the economy. The declines, however, were modest. It’s unknown whether they will do much to sway undecided voters who are considering whether to back Republican Mitt Romney or give the Democratic president four more years. The statewide data released by the Labor Department on Friday provide one of the last comprehensive looks at the health of the U.S. economy ahead of Election Day, now a little more than two weeks away. Voters will get one more update on the national unemployment

rate just days before the election. But the state reports matter greatly to the Obama and Romney campaigns, which believe the public’s impressions of the economy are shaped mostly by local conditions rather than national ones. In Ohio, perhaps the most crucial battleground state for both Obama and Romney, the rate unemployment ticked down last month to 7 percent from 7.2 percent, below the national average of 7.8 percent. “I knew a lot of people who were laid off and now they’re working,” said firefighter Matt Sparling, an Obama supporter from Parma Heights, Ohio. “So something good is happening here.” Obama’s team is banking on the president getting credit for improvements in Ohio’s economy, particularly for the bailout of the auto industry, which has deep roots in the Midwestern swing state. But Romney

has opportunities to run on the economy in Ohio, too. The state actually lost nearly 13,000 jobs in September and the drop in the unemployment rate was probably due in part to people dropping out of the job market. The president didn’t mention the state jobless numbers during a campaign stop Friday in Virginia, one of two states battleground where the rate didn’t drop. It held steady at the relatively low level of 5.9 percent. Spirited on other topics, Obama quipped in a raucous rally at George Mason University that a case of “Romnesia” was preventing his opponent from remembering his own stances on health care, energy and a slate of policies. “He’s forgetting what his own positions are — and he’s betting that you will, too,” Obama said. “We’ve got to name this condition that he’s going through. I think it’s called Romnesia.” Romney was headlin-

ing a rally in Florida Friday evening after spending much of the day in New York meeting with advisers. The candidates were stepping off the campaign trail this weekend for debate preparations ahead of Monday’s third and final face-off in Boca Raton, Fla. Romney was staying in South Florida to practice, while Obama and top aides headed to Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, to prepare for the foreign policy-focused debate. International issues competed with the economy for voters’ attention Friday, as fresh questions arose over what the White House knew when about the deadly attack on Americans in Libya. Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan accused Obama of stonewalling, telling Milwaukee radio station WTMJ that the president was refusing to answer even basic questions.

He scored one goal as a freshman, 13 as a sophomore and 17 last year to shatter the previous mark set by Chris Puckett. As this season began, there was really only one more goal for Webster to shoot at, the single season mark of 20 held by Mark Clayton.

— This reservoir is located east of the town of McComb off of South Park Drive, just south of Ohio 613. Yellow perch should begin biting again this month. The best fishing is usually from a boat, in the deeper water. Try fishing with spreaders tipped with minnows or red worms placed near or on the bottom. A concrete boat ramp is available. Boats are restricted to electric motors only. Northeast Ohio Pymatuning Lake (Ashtabula County) — This 16,300 acre lake is located in southeastern Ashtabula County and is approximately 1 mile East of Andover, Ohio and 1 mile North of Jamestown, Pennsylvania. Boats are allowed with a maximum of 20 horsepower. Anglers should note that boat anglers may have a license from either Ohio or Pennsylvania and be legal. However, shore anglers need to have a license for the state in which they are fishing, i.e., Ohio anglers must have a Pennsylvania fishing license in order to fish on the Pennsylvania side of Pymatuning Lake and Pennsylvania anglers must have an Ohio fishing license in order to fish on the Ohio side of Pymatuning Lake. This lake is known for its exceptional walleye fishing, but anglers often overlook its recent surge in the perch population. Anglers are reeling in nice limits of 40 fish while using minnows under bobbers or pin-mins tipped with maggots. These fish are only about 8 feet down,

so focus efforts shallower than normal for perch. Southeast Ohio Fox Lake (Athens County) — As the fall temperatures start to cool the water in this 53 acre lake, largemouth bass should start moving into shallow water. Fishing success should start picking up as these fish prepare for winter. Try using spinner baits, rubber worms, crankbaits, or jig-n-pig combinations fished near shallow structure, such as tree stumps, fallen logs, or even the edges of weed beds. Anglers should still be able to find some channel catfish as well. Night crawlers, chicken livers, and prepared catfish baits fished on the bottom all work well. Fox Lake is located approximately 4 miles West of Athens, and can be accessed from Township Road 29 and Fox Lake Road (County Road 81). Lake White (Pike County) — Although this 333 acre lake receives lower than average fishing pressure, anglers report excellent catches of crappie and spotted bass throughout the year. Crappie can be caught with minnows and a bobber fished near stumps or brush piles. Spotted bass and largemouth bass can be caught casting using artificial lures like rubber worms, spinner baits, and crankbaits. With 10 miles of shoreline to fish, try casting near visstructure. The ible riprap face of the dam and boat docks are also good areas to try. Channel catfish aren't as

abundant as the other species, but fishing chicken livers or night crawlers on the bottom might still produce a successful catch. Try fishing the upper end of the lake or where Pee Pee Creek enters the lake. For your best chance at catching channel catfish at this lake try fishing after a heavy rain or a water rise. Southwest Ohio East Fork (Clermont County) — Crappies are being caught by anglers using wax worms, tube jigs, or medium to large sized minnows tipped on white or chartreuse jigs. Look for good crappie fishing off of points and back into the cove areas, as well as up and into Poplar and Clover creeks. Bluegills are hitting on wax worms and red worms. Keep the bait under a bobber around 2 to 3 feet deep. Cast anywhere around the docks, standing wood, or downed trees. Channel catfish are being caught by anglers using night crawlers fished along the bottom in the mouths of the creeks. Mad River (Clark, Montgomery Counties) — Trout are being taken on Mepps spinners and Rooster tails. Wading in the river and fishing from a kayak are both popular with anglers. Ohio River Western Ohio River: Anglers are still taking channel catfish. They are being caught on chicken livers and cutbait around warm water discharges. Carp are biting on dough balls and corn. Hybrids have been hitting Rapalas and rattletraps

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Wildlife Council passed rules to modify the fish fillet rule and other fish and wildlife rules on Thursday, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. Fillets must be kept whole until an angler reaches his or her permanent residence or until the fish are prepared for immediate consumption. There will be no requirement to keep skin on the fillets. This rule will not apply to anglers with a receipt from a fish cleaning house or charter captain, which states the date, number and species of fish. Rules encompassing wild animal hunting preserves, commercial bird shooting preserves and wild cervids were passed to align with recently enacted legislation (House Bill 389). The Ohio Wildlife Council also passed rules to define the geographical limits on reservoirs and bag limits of selected fish species. For the complete list of rules, go to The Ohio Wildlife Council is an eight-member board that approves all ODNR Division of Wildlife proposed rules and regulations. Appointed by Gov. John Kasich, no more than four members may be of the same political party, and two of the council members must represent agriculture. Each term of

The weekly fish Ohio fishing report has been released for Ohio’s inland lakes and rivers. Central Ohio Big Darby Creek (Franklin, Madison, and Pickaway Counties) — Cooling water temperatures in creeks and rivers can provide good fall fishing action. Smallmouth bass and rock bass are the popular sport fish in this stream west of Columbus. Casting small crankbaits or plastics resembling crawfish or shiners can be rewarding; target boulders, shoreline cover, and locations where pools meet riffles. Deer Creek Lake (Pickaway County) — As water temperatures cool fish will become more active. For crappie target woody cover in the creek channel and move to shallower water as temperatures cool. Try minnows or jigs suspended under a bobber. Largemouth bass can be caught on buzzbaits, crankbaits, and plastics. Fish shoreline cover and in schools of shad. White bass are active around Tick Ridge; look for fish breaking the water surface as they chase gizzard shad. Try using spinners and jigs. Northwest Ohio Barton Lake (Williams County) — Barton Lake is located on the St. Joseph River Wildlife Area, along County Road J, west of County Road 10, southwest of Montpelier. It is 19 acres in size and now is an excellent time to pursue catfish in the lake. Try fishing during the evenings in the southwest corner of the lake. Night crawlers fished under a bobber or tight-lined usually produce the best results. A ramp for small boats is available. There is a limit of 10 sunfish area wide, and only 5 bass, which must be 18 inches in length, may be kept. Willard Reservoir (Huron County) — Yellow perch usually start biting this time of year at the reservoir which is located on Ohio 61, two miles north of New Haven. As the water temperature begins to cool this fall, try fishing just off of the bottom in 19 feet of water, using spreaders tipped with minnows or red worms. There is a boat ramp available, but only electric motors may be used. A boat permit must be obtained from the city of Willard at City Hall.

Loramie Lehman falls to Spencerville posts big win BY TONY ARNOLD

RIDGEMONT — It was a night of total domination by the Fort Loramie Redskins Friday night as the team shutout Ridgemont, 75-0. “All 52 of our kids played,� said Fort Loramie coach Burgbacher. “The Matt younger kids work really hard during the week, so for them to get playing time on Friday night — it’s really special for them.� The coach said they faced a team that was depleted by some injures to their players. “I was a little bit surprised by the score,� said Burgbacher. “We went in there knowing we had a job to do and we wanted to get it done. We played very well in the beginning.� Fort Loramie scored 34 points in the first quarter. “The scoring was really spread out and that’s important,� said Burgbacher. “And we had two defensive linemen who scored.� Delaunte Thornton started the scoring off with a 7-yard touchdown run. Tristan Stripling added the extra point. Defensive lineman David Ahrnes jumped on a fumble and returned it for a 30 yard touchdown. Stripling added another point with his kick. For the second time in the quarter, Thornton first scored a touchdown on a 65yard run. Craig Fullenkamp added another touchdown following a 30-yard run. Stripling added an extra point. The final score of the quarter came when defensive player Zach Brandewie recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown. Stripling added another extra point. The team scored 21 points in the second quarter. Thornton scored his third touchdown of the game on a 6-yard run. Stripling added an extra point. Tyler Kazmaier scored on a 35-yard run and Kazmier and Stripling added the extra point. Cole Cordonnier scored his first touchdown of the night on a 4-yard run. Stripling added the extra point. In the third quarter, the team scored 14 points. Craig Fuller scored on a 70-yard kick-off return. Stripling added the extra point. Cordonnier scored his second touchdown on a 4-yard run. Stripling added the extra point. The final score of the night came in the fourth quarter when Andrew Grewe had a 30-yard touchdown run. Fort Loramie is now 7-2 on the season. Ridgemont is 5-4. The Redskins will hold senior night Friday when they face Upper Scioto Valley at home.

Facing a formidable opponent on both Senior Night and the Season Finale — Lehman dropped a 50-14 verdict to visiting Spencerville. “The kids played hard and we worked at it and that’s what we ask of them. It’s a good group (seniors) and they were part of some good teams and they helped us get back in the right direction. Our seniors were leaders and they did a good job for us,� said Lehman coach Dick Roll. Lehman caps off the season with a 4-5 mark while Spencerville bumps their overall mark to 7-2 on the year. The Cavalier campaign culminated last night after nine weeks because Troy Christian, who was originally on the schedule for the tenth week, cancelled football this year. The Cavaliers came into the contest with momentum on their side – winners of three of their last four games however Division V – Spencerville, also came in on a roll and turned the Cavs into their sixth victim in the last seven weeks. “They (Spencerville) outclassed us. These kids were sophomores when we scrimmaged them a couple years ago and we thumped them pretty good but it was payback this time,� said Roll. The Cavalier defense kept the ground-chewing Bearcats off the scoreboard for most of first quarter. The the Bearcats threatened just past the midway mark in the first quarter — stretching a drive deep into the redzone. However, it was the Cavalier de-

However, on another muddy night of Friday night football — the Bearcats continued to rely on their rugged running game. Spencerville carried the ball 25 times for 145 yards in

the first half. Spencerville had no first half completions. The Cats scored the first touchdown of the game as running back Colton Miller rushed in from 11-yards out with 1:07 remaining in the first. Spencerville wasted little time — finding the end zone once again – this time just 13 seconds later when Derek Goecke recovered a

fumble and rushed it in for a TD dash. The guests led 15-0 heading into the second quarter. Lehman countered with an efficient 39-yard TD scoring drive midway through the second period. On the shoulders of a solid running game which included a big carry by senior running back – Andrew Gilardi the Cavs capped off the drive with a 3-yard TD on a quarterback-keeper by Nick Rourke. Following the extra point by Zach Taylor the Cavs trimmed the deficit to 15-7. However, the Cats came right back with a drive of their own and when Miller dashed in from 23- yards out Spencerville led 23-7 courtesy of a two-point conversion. Spencerville enjoyed a 23 to 7 lead heading into halftime. Surprisingly, neither team was flagged with a penalty in the first half. The Bearcats continued to tally yards on the ground in the second half. After three quarters the Spencerville lead swelled all the way to 35 to 7. Colton Miller scored his fifth touchdown of the game to put the Bearcats up 50-7. Late in the game senior Adams showed Andrew plenty of break-away speed to split a pair of defenders and break loose for a 70-yard touchdown romp. The Adams touchdown followed by senior Zach Taylor’s point after attempt cut the lead to 50-14. “We’ve had success and some good times this year. We’ve been in some games — we could have won today but just let it get away from us but again they work hard,� concluded Roll.

Bengals’ running game stuck in place

Marion Local wins Anna’s Chandon Williams runs into Marion Local’s Dustin Rethman during Friday night’s football game. Marion Local defeated Anna, 27-21.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals’ running game still isn’t going anywhere. They overhauled the offensive line and brought in BenJarvus Green-Ellis in the offseason, hoping for a more diverse approach. So far, it’s not working out that way. The Bengals (3-3) rank 21st in the NFL in running the ball, forcing them to throw a lot more than they’d like. It’s also contributed to an inability to string together long drives — they’ve converted only 26.7 percent of third downs, worst in the league. They’re waiting for the running game to get going. “You never know,� said Green-Ellis, who hasn’t run for 100 yards this season. “Everything happens at different points in the season. We just all have to come together and continue to work at it and be consistent and be our own worst critics at times.� It’s had problems right from the start. The Bengals let Cedric Benson leave as a free agent, looking to get a more diverse running back for their West Coast offense. Both GreenEllis and backup Bernard

Scott were injured during training camp, preventing the Bengals from figuring out a rotation between them. The offensive line also took several hits. Rookie Kevin Zeitler started at right guard in place of Bobbie Williams, who left as a free agent. Left guard Travelle Wharton tore up his right knee in the preseason opener, and center Kyle Cook suffered a significant ankle injury in the final one. The Bengals signed free agent center Jeff Faine only 10 days before the opener. Everything in the running game was in flux and has yet to settle down. “I think there’s a lot to it,� left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “It’s got to be executed better and we have to get on the same page. It’s looked good at times and it’s looked bad at times. The key is just finding a way for everybody to get on the same page, communicate a little better. “It’s different. This is the first time we’ve been in a situation where all three guys interior-wise are new. So we’re learning to communicate together and figure those things out. That’s the key to the running game.�

Wildcats rally to defeat Versailles VERSAILLES — When Versailles and Minster play each other in football, you can count on a competitive close game.

52 yard run to the one yard line. Damian Richard caught a 1 yard touchdown pass to put the Tigers up 7-0. Rutshilling would score on a 22 yard run early in the second, but the Tigers would not find the endzone the rest of the night. Minster scored in the second quarter on a 24 yard touchdown pass. The Wildcats would score twice in the second half to gain the victory. With 7:12 left in the third, the Wildcats scored on a 1 yard touchdown run. The final score was a 5 yard pass.

Sidney falls to Trotwood TROTWOOD — The Yellow Jackets football team played a very strong Trotwood team and fell by a score of 757 Friday night. The loss drops Sidney to 3-6 on the season. The lone score for Sidney came late in the game. Kyle Dembski set up the score when he broke away from the pack for a 35-yard gain. Two plays later, Jordan Fox found Jalen Herd for a 31-yard touchdown pass and catch. Eric

Barnes nailed the extra point to bring the final score of 75-7. “We ran up against a well-oiled athletic machine tonight,” said coach Adam Doenges. “We’ve already put it behind us, and we're going to start preparing tomorrow to play Greenville and work toward retaining the Little Brown Jug.” That game against Greenville will be the finale for the 2012 Jacket football team, and it will

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A young man whose sexual-abuse claims triggered the investigation of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says in his new book Sandusky’s wife once called down to the basement while he was being attacked and Sandusky dismissed her by saying he was busy. Aaron Fisher writes in “Silent No More” that Dottie Sandusky asked her husband to fix a table upstairs but that when he replied he was fixing an air hockey table she dropped the subject. “Sarge,” Fisher wrote, using her nickname, “never went down to the basement.” The basement, according to court testimony, is where Sandusky abused Fisher and other boys who stayed overnight at his home. Fisher, who was known publicly for a year only as Victim 1, put aside anonymity Friday to speak about his ordeal as a child, telling ABC’s “20/20” he had contemplated suicide because authorities took so long to prosecute Sandusky, nearly three years after he and his mother first alerted

Schmidt: A-Rod was cursed once he got big contract BY MIKE SCHMIDT For The Associated Press There was a time when Alex Rodriguez was touted as the guy who could relieve us of Barry Bonds as the home run king. He was young, healthy and an MVP contender every year. If anyone deserved $30 million a year, it was him. That’s a stretch — “deserve” $30 million a year. Maybe discovering a cure for cancer, world hunger or global peace, but not playing baseball. Who’s worth that number? Surely not a baseball player. Funny, Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise gets the same for a movie, no one raises an eyebrow. No discussion about Alex Rodriguez can be complete without the subject of money. For an athlete who dedicates his life to his craft, the size of the paycheck is a major factor. No one has ever refused money or given money back. Athletes are entertainers, some ridiculously high-paid entertainers. In a perfect world, entertainers would not be allowed to make more money than doctors, police officers or anybody whose work made a difference to society. Ours is not a perfect world, so things get out of balance. Something like a young super-athlete, who played baseball for an eccentric owner, in an era when expanded TV, media, Internet and general economic growth seemed evident, was part of a perfect storm. Alex Rodriguez was cursed. At the time he had no idea, none of us did. That contract changed him and baseball and has been a burden to many. A burden under which he has to play, fans have to watch and baseball has to exist. Alex Rodriguez’s career will never be appreciated. Is the burden of money at the root of all of his problems? Alex Rodriguez, for all intents and purposes, is a good guy. His problem, at times, seems to be the perception that he comes off as insincere, insecure and even a bit fake. What mega-athlete doesn’t have that side to their personality? I did. OK, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, just off the top of my head, but that’s about where it ends. LeBron, Kobe and Tiger, there’s a quick three for comparison. But then the anti-A-Rod — Derek Jeter — still at a level where salary could be an issue, is beloved and respected by everyone. CC Sabathia and Mark Teixeira also are on the Yankees and make over $20 million each, and they escape the daily wrath and scrutiny. Is it money, personality or the combination that makes Alex so polarizing? To make a point, two personal stories. After his first couple years as a teenage major league shortstop in Seattle, I met him before a golf event in Fort Lauderdale. I had retired several years earlier, he was just beginning his career, and I sensed a great re-

spect as he addressed me as Mr. Schmidt. It made me feel old, but at the same time, he impressed me with his approach. Fast forward to the All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium in 2008 when he was one homer away from my 548 on the all-time home run chart. We were standing at third base, I was a little uncomfortable not knowing what to say, so I tried to make conversation by mentioning the home run list. He asked me if I was planning on being there to see him match me. It was sort of an aloof response to my question — to ask if I was planning on following him till he tied me was a little presumptuous and a blow to my ego. It came off as the exact opposite of our first meeting. This was 500 home runs and $200 million later in life. I may be reading too much into these moments, Alex wouldn’t even remember them. He was there to play the game, not carry on a conversation about home run records with me. Just the wrong choice of words in a stressful moment, that can happen. Alex has a very high profile, tries so hard to be normal, and can’t pull it off. No one making $30 million a year could. If he were a rock star, who’d care? He plays America’s game in front of us for seven months. He can’t hide. The reason he is so polarizing lies right in this story. In him, we all see a guy who hit the sports lottery and we think, if it were us, life would be a bowl of cherries and it would be easy to be everything to everyone. If the tables were turned in that exchange at the All-Star game, I’d have said to him that I’d be honored if he were present when I tied and passed him, and I would send my jet to bring him there. Is that crazy? So many people say to me that I came along in baseball 20 years too early. They say imagine what you’d make if you played today. My answer is simple and has two parts: I’d be Alex Rodriguez, and I’m glad I’m not. We are alike in that we both were shortstops and moved to third base. We both hit home runs, produced runs, won Gold Gloves, won MVP awards and a World Series championship. Most of my career I was the highest or close to the highest-paid player in baseball. Over the last decade, and forever, it’s him. We played under the highest pressure and expectations. I may be one person who has walked in his shoes. Of course, it was Philadelphia, not New York. It was $2 million, not $30 million. And the world in which he lives is drastically different than mine. Make no mistake, few would qualify to be both highest paid in the game and 0 for 20 in a postseason. I know what it’s like to be right on the ball and miss it, and the few times you connect it’s caught. Imagine in the ALCS opener

against Detroit, bases loaded, if Alex’s rope in the hole in the second inning was 6 inches to the left. He’d drive in two runs, the pressure is off and maybe none of this happens. Instead, Jhonny Peralta dives and catches it for the third out, another failure in the clutch. In the 1983 World Series, I finished 1 for 20. But in my first two atbats, I lined out to center field with men on base. Those balls find the gap and I’d go as far to say the Series outcome against Baltimore would have been different. The postseason can be cruel, especially cruel to those hitters who are expected to produce and lead their teams. In baseball, players are supposed to be judged over an extended period, not a two-week postseason. Hitting comes and goes and never says goodbye. This time of year, the big, high-paid boys are supposed to hit, but most don’t. Check it, there are more hitting stars who fail in postseason than succeed. Look at Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson — even worse than Alex, but who’s making the headlines? Imagine if he had never signed that contract, made a normal amount and never had a brush performance-enhancing with drugs. Imagine if there were no Internet, no Twitter or Facebook, only a couple newspapers and radio shows, and limited television exposure. Would he be today’s Mickey Mantle? But that’s the reality, and because of it he has his $200 million and the pressure that comes with it. He signed on for this and now he faces challenges few if any ever have. I was never benched, never removed for a pinch hitter. The Phillies believed I was always one swing from changing a game and a series. Apparently, Joe Girardi didn’t feel the same about Alex Rodriguez. Alex seems to my eye to still be a fundamentally sound and potentially very productive hitter. Staying healthy at 37 is the issue. Age is a funny thing. I seemed to hit a wall in my late 30s. I can’t explain it other than to say fastballs I used to hit a long way ended up on the warning track, nagging injuries increased, I didn’t get to groundballs I used to eat up. And as this happened, I began to doubt my ability. I had an excuse: I was old, so I retired. It happens to all of us. But in Alex’s case when it does — if it isn’t happening now — it won’t be that easy. He will be making $30 million a year, guaranteed! For that kind of money, you aren’t allowed to get old. ——— Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt and Alex Rodriguez have both won three MVP awards and a World Series title. Schmidt hit 548 home runs and was a 12-time All-Star; Rodriguez has 647 homers and is a 14-time All-Star.

CLEVELAND BROWNS guard Jason Pinkston uses oxygen on the bench during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J.

Browns’ Pinkston in hospital with blood clots BEREA (AP) — A stirring week for the Cleveland Browns has turned sobering. Starting left guard Jason Pinkston remains hospitalized with blood clots in his lungs, a lifethreatening condition he’s grateful was detected early. After the Browns revealed Pinkston’s condition after practice on Friday, he confirmed his illness on Twitter while being treated at the Cleveland Clinic. “The news is true I’ve been hospitalized with blood clots in my lungs very thankful our medical staff did a great job of taking action,” Pinkston wrote on his account. “And catching it at a early stage it’s obviously clear I won’t be playing for sometime but more importantly I’m thankful to be alive.” It’s believed the blood clot contributed to him becoming ill in last week’s win over Cincinnati. Pinkston will not play Sunday against Indianapolis and the Browns do not know when the second-year guard will be released from the hospital or cleared to return. Browns coach Pat Shurmur disclosed Pinkston’s medical issue after the team’s last workout, concluding a week in which Jimmy Haslam was approved by the NFL as Cleveland’s new owner, former Eagles president Joe Banner was introduced as the team’s CEO and Republican vice presidential

nominee Paul Ryan and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice visited practice. Shurmur did not provide many specifics about Pinkston, a second-year guard from Pittsburgh. Several of his teammates visited Pinkston in the hospital on Thursday night. “We’re definitely concerned and our thoughts are with him,” Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas said. “Obviously, it’s a little bit scary, but I guess we’re definitely going to keep in touch with him and hopefully things will be all right.” Shurmur would not say where Pinkston’s blood clot is located. He does not know how long the 25-year-old will be sidelined or if he will need to have surgery. “We’ll just have to see,” Shurmur said. “What I’ll tell you is, he’s being treated for a blood clot. He’s going to miss this week. As we go through next week, we’ll determine if he’s going to miss an extended period of time.” Pinkston started last week’s win over Cincinnati but wasn’t feeling well and was replaced by John Greco, who played the entire second half. Pinkston practiced as recently as Wednesday but missed Thursday’s workout and was listed on the team’s injury report as being out with an “illness.” Shurmur did not know if Pinkston feeling ill last Sunday was related to the blood clot.

Health fair, drug take-back events set

MEMBERS OF the Minster Rocket Club hold poinsettias. The club is selling the flowers as a fundraiser. Shown (l-r) are Jessica Berelsman, Nathan Riethman, Pierce McGowan, Hannah Kuether and Austin Dwenger.

Minster Rocket Club selling poinsettias MINSTER — The Minster Rocket Club is holding its first Christmas poinsettia fundraiser preselling orders through Nov. 19. The funds raised through the sales will support the Minster Rocket Club as it competes in two national events this year. Since 2009, the Minster Rocket Club has earned its way into the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC), where the top 100 schools from the country go to compete in the world’s largest rocket contest. Teams design, build and fly a model rocket that reaches a specific altitude and duration determined by a set of rules developed each year. The contest is designed to encourage students to study math and science and pursue careers in aerospace. This past year, one of the three teams that attended the TARC competition placed 12th in the country. This accomplishment earned the Minster Rocket Club an invitation from NASA to compete at the Student Launch Initiative, an exclusive rocket contest for the top 25 teams in the country.

NASA Student Launch Initiative challenges students to design, build and launch a reusable rocket with a scientific or engineering payload to one mile — 5,280 feet — above ground level. The project engages students in scientific research and real-world engineering processes with NASA engineers. The Minster Rocket Club needs to raise $12,000 to help defray the expenses of construction and flight testing. Students have been extrabusy this year running a concession stand at the Auglaize and Mercer County fairs, as well as the Lake Loramie Fall Festival and Minster Oktoberfest, but the club is still short of its fundraising goal. In an effort to make this poinsettia fundraiser a success, the club is calling upon family, friends and local businesses to help it. Several varieties are available: poinsettia “red,” poinsettia “burgundy,” poinsettia “white,” poinsettia “jingle bells’ (red with splashes of white), poinsettia “strawberries and cream,” poinsettia “marble (white with pink

middles) and poinsettia “pink.” Each plant comes wrapped in a gold pot cover and has a protective sleeve to make it easy to handle and transport. The poinsettias are of the best quality and make wonderful gifts that will brighten any home or office for the holidays, club members said. The plants are a true bargain, club members said. Large orders of more than 10 poinsettias can be delivered upon request. All other orders must be picked up from the Minster Junior/Senor High School on Dec. 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. and Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Orders are due by Nov. 19 and payment is expected at time of order. Poinsettias may be purchased in one of three ways: Visit the Minster Junior/Senior High School office between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.; contact any Minster Rocket Club member; or place an online credit card order at www.minsterrocketclub.c om/poinsettia-sale. For more information, contact Ted Oldiges at (937) 638-7164 or by email at ted.oldiges@minster.k12.oh .us.

The toll-free number for the National Domestic Hotline is (800) 7997233. The line is open 24 hours daily, seven days a week and provides crisis intervention and information. Unfortunately, you married an immature boy instead of the mature young man you anticipated. It might take years before he matures, if he ever does, and it just might not be worth the wait to find out. DR. WALLACE: When it comes to being afraid, why are guys braver than girls?

A study of ninth-graders showed that both sexes shared fears of darkness and strangers. Girls were more likely to be afraid of insects, injury and being alone. Guys scored higher in being afraid of heights and unknown animals. Another way we differ? Girls tend to handle their fears by looking to others for support. Guys are more inclined to confront their fears in an effort to overcome them. It’s a strategy worth copying. Research shows that facing up to your fears can bring about some serious feelings of strength and triumph!

More than 240 students are represented on the rosters of the nine participating school districts. Edison State Community College sponsors each of the weekly matches.


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. 22, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) In the next month, you will focus on inheritances, shared property, insurance matters, taxes and debt. Romantic relationships also will be passionately intense! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) For the next four weeks, you need more sleep because the Sun will be opposite your sign. This also makes you focus on partnerships and close friendships.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Because you’re motivated in the next month to get better organized, act on this urge! Give yourself the right tools to do a great job — shelving, cleaning supplies, paint, file folders, whatever. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to get away on vacation in the next six weeks. During this window of time, you want to play and have fun. You also want the freedom to just be yourself. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Home, family and domestic matters will demand your attention in the next month. Time spent with a parent probably will be significant.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) The pace of your days will accelerate in the next six weeks, so just accept it. This is not the time to stay at home. Get out and hustle! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your focus on money, earnings and personal possessions will increase in the next six weeks. Basically, you want to make sure that your wealth and possessions make your life easier. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Ta-da! Today the Sun enters your sign for the next month, boosting your energy and recharging your batteries for the rest of the year. It also will attract people and favor-

able situations to you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Work behind the scenes in the next month, because you’re planning so many things. You’ve got a lot on your plate, and you need to prioritize what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) It’s a popular month ahead! Accept all invitations. Many of you will join clubs and groups in the next six weeks. It’s a great time to schmooze. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) At this time of year, the Sun is slowly moving across the top of your chart, acting like a spotlight on you. Bosses will take notice of you, because this light is flattering.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Try to get away at some point in the next six weeks, because you want to expand your horizons. Travel if you can, or learn something new. YOU BORN TODAY You are highly entertaining, magnetic and persuasively charming! People flock to you! Ironically, you easily admire others. You are very emotional, and your private life is definitely witness to this. (Many of you have a fascinating, active love life.) You are socially smooth but rebellious. This year, an exciting new cycle begins. Open any door! Birthdate of: Sarah Bernhardt, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Deepak Chopra, physician/writer.

Even your family relationships will be warm and loving. Lucky you! YOU BORN TODAY You’re so inspirational; others are attracted to you. You’re clever, bright and intellectual. You have great verbal skills and love to banter with others. Often rebellious in your youth, you later become a role model for others. You love to entertain! This year, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Carrie Fisher, actress/writer; Ursula K. Le Guin; Whitey Ford, New York Yankees pitcher. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

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

THE FUTURE OF AMERICA DEPENDS ON THIS ELECTION Before you cast your vote, this time, regardless of your color, race, or political party, put your primary interest over your party affiliation. Our great nation’s survival is on attack! The freedom for your children, grandchildren and future generations depends on your vote. The world looks to America as the last hope for freedom from oppression, slavery and the totalitarian system. Just over two hundred years ago a small group of Christian people risked their lives to find religious freedom in this country we call America! America was built upon three major cornerstones; individual freedom, economic freedom, and religious freedom. The question is how do you want your life to be? Free and independent from the government or do you want to be dependent on the government? Do you want to be controlled and have your life dictated by the government? When you believe that a perpetual lifestyle of living on government hand outs is good for you and others, you have been deceived into giving up your freedom and have become a contributor in taking the country one more step closer to socialism. This only gives government more power over your life! We have no more protection of the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution has become a “door mat” serving the only purpose to scrub your feet in it! Until I was 38 years old, I lived under that type of government, I can tell you first hand, it is not good! What has happened to your healthcare? The government will eventually eliminate all insurance companies, and your freedom to choose your carrier. There will be no more competition among insurance companies. The government will implement one healthcare system and will control your healthcare by dictating to your doctor what care you can and cannot receive. Do not let the government come between the doctor/patient relationships for treatment after a diagnosis . . . this kind of control allows the government to decide who is going to live and who is going to die! For example, if you are over 65 years of age, you will not be eligible for triple by pass surgery or a heart transplant because of the cost. This is how the government will cut/control benefits for the elderly; they will eliminate healthcare procedures at a certain age, resulting in American’s dying earlier. This will ultimately result in fewer seniors receiving Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid . . . what a master plan; kill the people off to reduce the cost of those programs. Right now, our country has the best healthcare in the world; do you want to jeopardize it? I am a living example of our country’s great healthcare system. At age 75 I had a triple by pass and I survived colon cancer, by undergoing a lifesaving surgery and follow up treatment. At age 92, I am here, still living independently! Under the President’s healthcare system, I would have never survived all these years. I thank God for our current healthcare system and freedom of choice in this country. Right now, regardless of whether you have any insurance or not, the laws provide that no hospital can turn you away. You will receive the care you need. During this election, your vote is not only for yourself, but also for your children and grandchildren. Select the candidate who can lead this great nation out of this economic and political chaos! There is a distinct difference between the democratic and republican leaders. The democrats want the people to be dependent on government . . . which ultimately takes power and choice from the people and gives the government power over the people. It also creates class wars, which simply divides us as citizens of this great nation. The republicans want the people to be independent and have the power to take control of their own lives, allowing people to use their talents and hard work to become successful! The republicans view government as a facilitator in helping people become independent; rather than the source of their survival through hand outs and benefits, which is simply put, socialism. Socialism is like a form of slavery. During the last 4 years we have seen the President’s leadership, our economic system has crumbled; millions of people are on unemployment; and the world is in turmoil with nation against nation. Recently, our ambassador and 3 other Americans were killed in Egypt by terrorists. What did our President do? He spent his time on fund raising trips for the upcoming election! Actions speak louder than words and his actions during this tragedy very clearly tell the American people what kind of leader he is and where his interests lye. We need a President who will create jobs and enable us to be independent so that we can feed our children, pay our mortgage, and implement a plan to reduce our national debt. Let us also not forget about our national security and building and maintaining a strong military. As the strongest nation, we not only ensure peace here at home, but also globally. Reducing our country’s military makes us weak as a nation and opens the door to terrorist and unrest here in the U.S. and globally! Our country is currently spending billions of dollars to our enemies for oil; who in turn are building bombs, which will give them the power to destroy us. Our President is spending billions of dollars on green energies instead of appropriating those funds toward oil development here at home. A President who will makes us independent on our own oil resources, will creat jobs here at home and end the U.S. contributing to our enemy’s strength over us and our allies! It’s time to wake up as a nation and see the big picture. I pray to God to look down upon this great nation and protect us from foreign and domestic enemies and to open the minds of the U.S. citizens to vote for the candidate who will lead us back to the principals this great country was founded upon. Tibor Jonas Sr. 2330735
