Gadhafi killed SIRTE, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi, Libya’s dictator for 42 years until he was ousted in an uprisingturned-civil war, was killed Thursday as revolutionary fighters overwhelmed his hometown of Sirte and captured the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell. The 69-year-old Gadhafi is the first leader to be killed in the Arab Spring wave of popular uprisings that swept the Middle East, demanding the end of autocratic rulers and the establishment of greater democracy. “We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Moammar Gadhafi has been killed,” Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told a news con-

ference in the capital of Tripoli. There were conflicting accounts about Gadhafi’s final hours, with the interim government saying he was captured unharmed and later mortally wounded in the crossfire from both sides. A second account described how he was already wounded in the chest when he was seized and later sustained the other wounds. Interim government officials said one of Gadhafi’s sons, his former national security adviser Muatassim, also was killed in Sirte, and another, one-time heir apparent Seif al-Islam, was wounded and captured. Gadhafi’s death decisively See GADHAFI/Page 5

A special commission of retired judges appointed by the Ohio Supreme Court have issued a prelimi n a r y determination to suspend Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel from office pending the outcome of Kimpel a felony case against him in Auglaize County. The ruling, issued this week, is anticlimactic because Kimpel has already voluntarily stepped aside until his case is settled. The ruling was in response to a request by Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal, special prosecutor in cases against Kimpel in Auglaize and Shelby counties, who asked the Supreme Court to suspend Kimpel pending the outcome of the cases in the two counties. This marks the first time the law, enacted in 2005, has been used to suspend a sheriff in Ohio. The law allows for a prosecutor to call for the suspension of a public official from office if the prosecutor believes the “felony relates to the public official’s administration of, or conduct in the performance of the duties of, the office of the public official.” Kimpel is facing a felony charge of sexual battery in Auglaize County after being indicted Sept. 21 and charged with the alleged sexual assault of Sheriff’s Deputy Jodi Van Fossen at her home in Auglaize County. He faces up to five years in prison and/or See KIMPEL/Page 2

The accident is under investigation by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

a $10,000 fine if he is found guilty. Kimpel also faces five felony counts in Shelby County Common Pleas Court after being indicted Sept. 29 on charges of unauthorized use of the Ohio Law EnGateway forcement (OHLEG) program which is used by law enforcement to perform background checks on crime suspects. Kimpel allegedly used the system to check on people for personal reasons. He faces up to 12 months in jail on each charge if he is convicted. Identity of the persons he allegedly checked on have not yet been released, although two were reportedly involved in law enforcement. The retired judges serving on the commission include John Kessler of Miami County, Markus of Richard Fairview Park and Paul Mitrovich of Lake County. The commission noted that it “finds the nature

From Page 1 of the indictment sufficient to support a suspension of Kimpel from public office.” The document further states that because the alleged sexual assault occurred while Kimpel was in office, and because he is unable to carry a gun under the Ohio Revised Code, it renders him “unable to carry out some of the regular and expected functions of his elected position.” The judges ruled the suspension is necessary “as his conduct in the performance of the duties of the official’s office, as covered by the charges, adversely affects the function of his office.” Kimpel has 14 days to to file a notice appealing the decision. If he does not appeal, the preliminary decision of the judges will become final. Under the suspension, Kimpel “shall not exercise any of the rights, powers, or responsibilities of the holding of that office.” He will continue to be paid during his sus-

pension until he “enters a plea of guilty to or is found guilty of the felony with which he is charged.” If he is found innocent of the charges in Auglaize County, Kimpel could return to office, although Nasal said previously he could request another suspension pending outcome of the Shelby County case. Nasal told the Sidney Daily News Thursday he was “satisfied with the outcome….I think it’s in everyone’s best interest that we maintain the status quo until there’s a determination” in the cases. The Shelby County Commissioners have named former five-term sheriff John Lenhart of Jackson Center to serve as interim sheriff and the appointment was later affirmed by the Shelby County Republican Party. Both Kimpel and Lenhart are Republicans. A pretrial hearing in the sexual battery case was scheduled for today in Auglaize County Common Pleas Court.

Grain harvest better than anticipated BY TOM BARNETT Shelby County farmers are experiencing a better than anticipated grain harvest following a stressful growing season, Roger Lentz, Farm Service Agency manager, said this week. “Crops have been hurt by a wet spring that delayed planting by a month and an extended hot, dry period during July and August that was followed by a cool, wet September,” he said “Overall, it’s going to be a below-average yield for the county, but the bottom line is at least we have a crop,” he allowed. Lentz said 75 percent of Shelby County’s soybean crop had been harvested with yields of 45 to 55 bushels an acre reported, less than normal in some instances. Moisture, he said, has been ranging from 13 to 9 percent, with dryer beans coming from southwest portions of the county. Steady rain Wednesday and Thursday has temporarily halted October’s harvest. Seeding next year’s July wheat, however, is delayed with the deadline for crop insurance being Oct. 20, Lentz said. “We can plant after the federal crop insurance deadline, but coverage levels begin to drop.” Since soybean harvest is taking longer, producers across the state may be considering planting less wheat for 2012. Lentz said corn for ensilage is 98 percent harvested with 3 to 4 percent of early-planted corn for grain harvested. “Early yields are good — 160 to 189 bushels per acre. Harvested corn is 13 to 15 percent moisture, but a lot in the field is 20 to 30 percent moisture yet,” he told a reporter. “Normally, corn is much dryer in October. Corn is going to require a lot of artificial drying. “Corn just won’t dry down in the field,” it has to be dried,” he explained, “meaning producers will spend more money on drying costs.” Lentz predicted this year’s harvest “may not wrap up by the first of the new year.” Posted Shelby County FSA prices at

At Farmer’s Elevator in Houston. David Roeth, manager, said about 70 percent of the area’s soybean crop has been harvested and yields that have been normally 45 to 55 have been averaging 35 to 50 bushels this year. Moisture, he said, is running 10 to 13 percent. elevator in The Houston has yet to receive enough corn to determine yields. Roeth said less than 10 percent of the area’s corn has been harvested and moisture is running high. “Some producers are waiting to harvest. The shelled corn we’ve received is wetter than normal. Moisture content this season could run 20 to 25 percent.” Albert Gross, manager at Champaign Landmark in Fletcher, said harvest is off to a good start with the area soybean crop about halfway delivered and 8 to 10 percent of corn deliveries. Gross said beans are running 40 to 45 bushels per acre, compared to 60 bushels last year, “but moisture content is good, averaging about 12 percent (where 13 percent is considered good).” He said soybean quality is running about normal. “Corn up to Oct. 16 was running about 18 percent moisture,” Gross said. “Now, it is in the 20 to 23 percent area. Quality is good, but there’s going to be a lot of (natural) gas used this year.” Not enough corn has yet been harvested to determine current average yields. Statewide, Joe Cornely, spokesman for the Ohio Farm Bureau, told the Associated Press, “We’re not going to have a bumper crop, but it’s far from a disaster.” Cornely also said the difference in crop yields is unlikely to impact supermarket shoppers, since while grocery costs have been experiencing larger than normal increases, it is largely due to factors other than farm commodity prices.

Zoo to release manatee CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Zoo plans to return a manatee to the wild as part of a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service rescue and release program. Illusion, a 978-pound Florida manatee, arrived at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden about a year ago and will be returned Nov. 9. She will remain on exhibit until Nov. 8. The manatee suffered fractured ribs and vertebrae in March 2010 when a boat propeller cut through her in Palm Beach County. She was taken to the Cincinnati Zoo by the Miami Seaquarium. The zoo says the manatee is the eighth it has rehabilitated and released. There are no scheduled release dates for Illusion’s roommates, Wooten and Betsy.

Fire was arson ATHENS (AP) — Arson investigators say they’ve determined that a fire at an Ohio University dormitory was deliberate. No injuries were reported in the fire that broke out Wednesday morning at True House on the Ohio campus in Athens. The state fire marshal’s office says in a statement that everyone was able to get out safely. With the investigation still ongoing, authorities aren’t saying how the fire was set. They say it was confined to the first-floor room where it started.

A STUFFED animal with a sympathy card attached hangs from the locked gate at the Muskingum County Animal Farm Thursday in Zanesville. The owner of a U.S. exotic animal farm who released dozens of tigers, lions and others beasts from their cages in a final act shot himself to death and then was bitten by one of his own animals, a sheriff said Thursday. An autopsy showed Terry Thompson had a bite wound on his head that appeared to have come from a large cat, such as a Bengal tiger, Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz told a news conference.

Man who freed animals was deep in debt ZANESVILLE (AP) — The exotic-animal owner who killed himself after turning loose dozens of lions, tigers and other beasts was deep in debt, and a fellow big-cat enthusiast said Thursday that he had taken in so many creatures he was “in over his head.” A day after sheriff’s deputies with high-powered rifles killed nearly 50 animals set free by Terry Thompson, the sheriff refused to speculate why he did it. Many neighbors, meanwhile, were puzzled as to why Thompson — a man who seemed to like animals more than people — would lash out in a way that would doom his pets. However, court records

show that he and his wife owed at least $68,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS and the county, and he had two federal tax liens filed against him last year. He had just gotten out of federal prison last month for possessing unregistered weapons. Kenny Hetrick, who has six tigers and other animals on his property outside Toledo, said he used to see Thompson at exotic-animal auctions a few times a year in Ohio. Many of Thompson’s tigers had been donated to him by people who bought baby animals that they no longer wanted once they started to grow, Hetrick said. “He really had more there than what he could

do,” Hetrick said. “I don’t know what his deal was, but he was in over his head.” On Tuesday, Thompson, 62, threw open the cages at his animal preserve and committed suicide. His body was found near the empty cages with a bite on the head that appeared to have been inflicted by a big cat shortly after Thompson shot himself, Sheriff Matt Lutz said. It appeared his body had been dragged a short distance, Lutz said. Deputies killed 48 animals — including 18 rare Bengal tigers, 17 lions and eight bears — in a hunt across the Ohio countryside that lasted nearly 24 hours.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Presidential swing state Ohio is preparing to move to two 2012 primaries, in a one-of-akind configuration nationally that voter advocates say will cause widespread confusion among citizens. Presidential and U.S. House primaries would be held June 12, along with certain special elections like school levies. The March primary would include state and local seats, and also the U.S. Senate race. Catherine Turcer of Ohio Citizen Action said the fact all federal candidates won’t be chosen on the same day will baffle people. “If a bunch of people who deal with this all the time find this confusing, how are regular voters going to find it?” said Peg Rosenfield, a veteran elections watcher with Ohio’s League of Women Voters chapter. State Sen. Keith Faber, of Celina, a Republican who helped craft the proposal, said it is the best solution to election chaos that’s gripped the state. Ballot challenges are under way by Democrats against two separate bills that affect state elections — an overhaul of state elections laws, and the redrawn U.S. House map that takes effect next year. Faber said moving the two races tied directly to congressional boundaries — President and Congress — makes sense. It provides a longer window to work

out a compromise over the disputed map, while retaining the calendar for local elections in which many candidates have already filed and begun campaigning, he said. He said grouping Senate with the other two federal races wasn’t considered. “I think moving anything else adds to voter uncertainty,” he said. “I was contacted by a number of voters’ organizations in my area, and (they) said, ‘Look, we’re set. Everybody’s geared up for a March primary — and that’s what people, the voters are expecting.’” Davidson College political scientist Josh Putnam, who writes a popular blog tracking states’ 2012 primaries, said no other state has a split primary quite like it. “It’s confusing to me. This is something I’ve never heard of,” he said. “Now, is that a burden to voters? I don’t know.” Democratic state Sen. Charleta Tavares, who opposed the date switch, also questioned the added cost associated with two primaries. The bill headed to the Senate floor Thursday and to a likely House vote on Friday includes unspecified funding to local election boards to pay for the June primary. Jennie Drage Bowser, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan National Conference of State Legislatures, said the trend this year has been to states consolidating elections.

Winter forecast cold north, dry south, heavy snow WASHINGTON (AP) — Winter looks to be cold and wet across the northern tier of states, and the drought will worsen in the South, where conditions are expected to be warmer and drier than usual, government forecasters said Thursday. Like last winter, the Pacific Ocean cooling known as La Nina is affecting the weather, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Mike Halpert, deputy director of the agency’s Climate Prediction Center, said snowfall probably will top the usual amounts from the Northwest to the Great Lakes and the Ohio and Tennessee river valleys. Dry conditions could extend from Southern California east across drought-stricken Texas and Oklahoma and along the Gulf Coast into Florida and possibly north to Virginia. Winter weather in other areas and the Northeast could go either way, the researchers said. While the forecast is not guaranteed, it could be more bad news for drought-stricken regions. Already 91 percent of Texas, 87 percent of Oklahoma and 63 percent of New Mexico are in extreme or exceptional drought,said

David Brown, director of Southern Regional Climate Services for NOAA. The unusually dry conditions also extend into Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Arkansas and Louisiana, he noted. Continued dry conditions will affect farming, livestock and other pursuits. It would take 10 inches to 15 inches of rain in some areas to make an appreciable difference, Brown said, and “the likelihood of seeing that kind of relief is pretty low.” At the same time the forecast for December, January and February looks to be cool along with West Coast and across the northern states to the Great Lakes.Wetter than normal conditions cover that area and extend a bit farther east and south, possibly as far as western New York and south to Kentucky. Some of the details by region: • Ohio and Tennessee Valleys: Wetter than average with equal chances for temperatures above, near or below average; potential for increased storminess and flooding. • Great Lakes: A tilt toward colder and wetter than average. ——— Online: NOAA:

No one wants jobs ONEONTA, Ala. (AP) — Potato farmer Keith Smith saw most of his Hispanic workers leave after Alabama’s tough immigration law took effect, so he hired Americans. It hasn’t worked out: They show up late, work slower than seasoned farm hands and are ready to call it a day after lunch or by midafternoon. Some quit after a single day. In Alabama and other parts of the country, farmers must look beyond the nation’s borders for labor because many Americans simply don’t want the backbreaking, low-paying jobs immigrants are willing to take. Politicians who support the law say over time more unemployed Americans will fill these jobs. They insist it’s too early to consider the law a failure, yet numbers from the governor’s office show only nominal interest.

No link to cancer LONDON (AP) — Danish researchers can offer some reassurance if you’re concerned about your cellphone: Don’t worry. Your device is probably safe. The biggest study ever to examine the possible connection between cellphones and cancer found no evidence of any link, suggesting that billions of people who are rarely more than a few inches from their phones have no special health concerns. The Danish study of more than 350,000 people concluded there was no difference in cancer rates between people who had used a cellphone for about a decade and those who did not.

Man sues over death SEATTLE (AP) — Tourist Diana Mechling jumped from the back of a boat last February into the warm waters off the coast of Belize to start snorkeling. Moments later, the operator tried to steady the boat by putting it in reverse, but the propeller sucked Mechling beneath the craft, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Seattle. Her husband Michael Mechling watched in horror as her lacerated body was quickly pulled onto the boat, the suit states. She died at a hospital. Mechling filed the wrongful death and negligence lawsuit against Seattle-based cruise line Holland America, as well as the Belize-based operator of the snorkeling excursion, Cruise Solutions.


Little bear makes mess KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) — Some shoppers in Ketchikan got treated to Alaska's version of a bear market last weekend. The Ketchikan Daily News reports a small black bear cub walked in the front door of Tatsuda’s IGA. The scared animal found its way to a produce cooler, where it made a mess.Meat department manager Joe Stollar responded to the PA announcement with a net because he misheard the announcement to say there was a bird in the store. Authorities suspect it was an orphaned bear since its mother wasn’t nearby. Stollar says the tiny bear was just scared and trying to hide.

Father: Israeli soldier treated harshly by Hamas JERUSALEM (AP) — The father of the Israeli soldier freed this week in a swap with the Islamic militant group Hamas said Thursday that his son “endured harsh things” while held in Gaza. Noam Schalit made the remarks Thursday evening after spending the Jewish holiday of Simhat Torah reunited with his son, Sgt. Gilad Schalit. The comments provided the first details of how the soldier was treated during his 5 1/2 years of captivity in Gaza. Schalit was freed Tuesday in exchange for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners. Many of the hundreds of prisoners released in the first part of the two stage swap called for more violence and abductions after they returned to Gaza and the West Bank. “Relative to the nightmare he endured, he is in good shape,” Noam Schalit said. “He has to readjust after almost 2,000 days of isolation without sunlight.” Gilad Schalit was notably gaunt, pale and exhausted when he was freed. Noam Schalit said his son was suffering from malnutrition and shrapnel wounds, apparently sustained during his capture, that had not been treated properly. Zuhair Al-Qaisi, from a Palestinian militant group that captured the soldier in 2006, told the Al-Hayat newspaper that the soldier was treated well. “He was not

Noam Schalit dismissed the report. “He endured harsh things, especially at the beginning of his captivity,” Schalit said, refusing to elaborate. “I hope he will return to a normal life soon,” he said. Since his return Gilad Schalit has been meeting family, friends and taking walks

and bicycle rides around his home in Mitzpe Hila, a small village in northern Israel. Well-wishers from across the country have flocked to the tiny community to catch a glimpse of the soldier who became a national figure while in captivity. Freed Palestinian prisoners were treated as heroes on Thursday as they tried to settle back into daily life. One of the most prominent Palestinian among those released, Yehiyeh Sinwar, called on militants to capture more Israeli soldiers to help free thousands of other Palestinians still in Israeli jails. “We have no other choice. Either we die in prison, or we are released this way,” Sinwar told The Associated Press. “The only way to release prisoners is to kidnap more soldiers.” Hundreds flocked to Sinwar’s home in the crowded Gaza city of Khan Younis, many kissing his forehead and his hands in a show of respect. Until his release, Sinwar, a founder of Hamas’ military wing, served almost 25 years of four life sentences he was given for his role in the abduction and killing of two Israeli soldiers in the 1980s. Another freed prisoner, Wafa al-Biss, a 26-year-old woman, was arrested in 2005 and sentenced to 12 years for trying to detonate explosives

hidden in her underwear as she approached Gaza’s Erez crossing into Israel. She had been given a permit by Israel to leave Gaza for treatment at an Israeli hospital for burns she sustained in an accident in her home in Gaza. She told well-wishers, including children from the neighborhood, that Palestinians should follow in her footsteps. “I was about to push the button to become a martyr,” al-Biss said in a telephone interview, recalling the day of her failed attack. “An error prevented me from doing so.” “We shall continue on this path of struggle and resistance and martyrdom, and this is what I told my comrades in the cell and this is what I told the children and this is what I am going to keep telling anyone who will ask me about my feelings,” she said. Hamas officials said they would give prisoners a $2,000 gift each and that they would receive government salaries. Israel’s agreement to release of 1,027 Palestinians for Schalit was the most lopsided swap in the country’s history. Israel on Tuesday released 477 Palestinian prisoners, many of them convicted of masterminding deadly attacks, in exchange for Schalit. In the second phase of the deal mediated by Egypt, Israel is to release another 550 prisoners in two months.

Gadhafi’s death resonates with Lockerbie relatives CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) — For decades, Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi was seen as an international villain, but for Susan Cohen he was a personal enemy, one she read up on daily for more than 20 years. Her 20-year-old daughter was one of the 270 people — many of them New York and New Jersey residents — killed when Pam Am Flight 103 was blown out of the sky by a terrorist bomb over the Scottish town of Lockerbie on Dec. 21, 1988, allegedly at Gadhafi’s behest. “This was sort of like Dracula: Is Dracula really dead?” said Cohen, of Cape May Court House, N.J. “It’s great now that we know. I didn’t want him to go to a trial. When you have a tyrant, a monster like him, we’re all better off with him dead. Now there can be no illusion of him ever returning to power.”

She said she intended to celebrate his death with an expensive bottle of champagne. Like the relatives of many of those killed on Flight 103, Cohen was an ordinary citizen who became an activist on Libya, terrorism, international law and diplomacy after the attack. Some, like Cohen, even attended the trial in the Netherlands of Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, who was convicted as the mastermind of the attack. They were outraged in 2009 when he was released to Libya from British captivity in 2009 on humanitarian grounds as he was supposedly close to death — and have remained angry that he’s still alive two years later. To some of them, his return implied that Britain was siding more with Gadhafi than with the victims of the

bombing. In London on Thursday, British Prime Minister David Cameron pledged assistance to Libya’s leaders as they work to form a new government. “Today is a day to remember all of Gadhafi’s victims,” he said. “We should also remember the many, many people who died at the hands of this brutal dictator and his regime.” Ali Aujali, the Libyan National Transitional Council’s ambassador to the U.S., told CNN that he didn’t think transitional leaders would want al-Megrahi returned to Scotland. “I saw the last photo of him. He is a very sick man,” Aujali said. Many families of the attack victims had longed for the dictator’s downfall — or death, which at times seemed imminent during the uprising in Libya but took until Thursday to happen.

GADHAFI ends a regime that had turned Libya into an international pariah and ran the oil-rich nation by the whim and brutality of its notoriously eccentric leader. Libya stands on the cusp of a new era, but its turmoil may not be over. The former rebels who now rule are disorganized and face rebuilding a country virtually without institutions by Gadhafi’s design. They have already shown signs of infighting, with divisions between geographical areas and Islamist and more secular ideologies. President Barack Obama told the Libyan people: “You have won your revolution.” Although the U.S. briefly led the NATO bombing campaign in Libya that sealed Gadhafi’s fate, Washington later took a secondary role to its allies. Britain and France said they hoped that his death would lead to a more democratic Libya. Arab broadcasters showed graphic images of the balding,

“I never thought I would see the day this man, this coward, would no longer be part of the world population,” said Bert Ammerman, of River Vale, N.J., whose brother Tom died in the bombing. “I can say today with a great deal of satisfaction that my brother and the other 269 people that were massacred on Dec. 21, 1988, did not die in vain.” But the dictator’s death does not close the book on the bombing for Kara Weipz, whose 20-year-old brother, Syracuse University student Richard Monetti, was one of its victims. “Ultimately, the one thing I hope is he had evidence on him,” said Weipz, who lives in Mount Laurel, N.J. “All the families really want to know the truth of how this happened. That has been our motto since 1988, and it remains our motto in 2011.”

From Page 1 goateed Gadhafi — wounded, with a bloodied face and shirt — but alive. Later video showed fighters rolling Gadhafi’s lifeless body over on the pavement, stripped to the waist and a pool of blood under his head. Standing, he was shoved along a Sirte road by fighters who chanted “God is great.” Gadhafi appears to struggle against them, stumbling and shouting as the fighters push him onto the hood of a pickup truck. He was driven around lying on the hood of a truck, according to the video. One fighter is seen holding him down, pressing on his thigh with a pair of shoes in a show of contempt. “We want him alive. We want him alive,” one man shouted before Gadhafi is dragged away, some fighters pulling his hair, toward an ambulance. Most accounts agreed Gadhafi had been holed up with heavily armed supporters in

the last few buildings held by regime loyalists in the Mediterranean coastal town, where revolutionary fighters have been trying prevail for more than a month. At one point, a convoy tried to flee and was hit by NATO airstrikes, carried out by French warplanes. France’s Defense Minister Gerard Longuet said the 80-vehicle convoy was carrying Gadhafi and was trying to escape the city. The strikes stopped the convoy but did not destroy it, and then revolutionary fighters moved in on Gadhafi. One fighter who said he was at the battle told AP Television News that the final fight took place at an opulent compound. Adel Busamir said the convoy tried to break out but after being hit, it turned back and reentered the compound. Several hundred fighters attacked. “We found him there,” Busamir said of Gadhafi. “We saw them beating him (Gadhafi) and someone shot him

with a 9mm pistol … then they took him away.” Military spokesman Col. Ahmed Bani in Tripoli told AlJazeera TV that a wounded Gadhafi “tried to resist (revolutionary forces) so they took him down.” Fathi Bashaga, spokesman for the Misrata military council, whose forces were involved in the battle, said fighters encircled the convoy and exchanged fire. In one vehicle, they found Gadhafi, wounded in the neck, and took him to an ambulance. “What do you want?” Gadhafi asked the approaching revolutionaries, Bashaga said, citing witnesses. Gadhafi bled to death from his wounds a half-hour later, he said. Fighters said he died in the ambulance en route to Misrata, 120 miles from Sirte. Abdel-Jalil Abdel-Aziz, a doctor who accompanied the body in the ambulance and examined it, said Gadhafi died from two bullet wounds — to the head and chest.

Tuesday Afternoon

Oct. 17 is always a reminder to me of my parents’ anniversary. They were happily married for 42 years before Dad’s passing away in 2000. We still miss them dearly but they left us many good memories. Meanwhile, we received the sad news of the death of Joe’s cousin Ben’s wife, Salome. She was only 46 years old and that dreaded cancer overtook her. Our sympathy goes to the family. They lost a son some time ago from a fall while working on construction. The funeral is on Wednesday and we hope to find a way to attend. Lots and lots of leaves have been raked around here. Saturday was a windy day and blew away a lot of our leaves which made us all happy. Last week, Kevin, 6, brought home a pumpkin from school and wanted me to carve a face in it for him. I told him I don’t have time but he didn’t give up until I took time and carved one in for him. I lit a candle inside and he was proud of his little pumpkin.

Lange wins Jeep DAYTON — Dan Lange, of St. Henry, kept a stone-cold poker face to the very end. If he was excited, anxious or even hopeful, he never showed his hand. He was the only top 10 finalist in the Community Blood Center Jeep Patriot drawing who refused to speculate about good fortune, insisting “I haven’t won anything yet” … until he did. Lange was the first finalist to pick his envelope. He chose one from the middle of the pile. One by one, all 10 took an envelope until the table was empty, then waited for the countdown to rip them open. But only Lange’s held the “golden ticket” with the inscription “winner.” True to form, he was “Cool Hand Dan” up until the moment of truth. “I wasn’t going to open it right away,” he said, still beaming with satisfaction. “I was going to let everyone else go first. They said nine of the envelopes would have a silver ticket, but mine was white. I pulled it out, and on the other side … it was gold. I said, ‘Oh my goodness!’ “ After a hug and kiss from his joyful wife, Jody, Lange went back to his poker face, saying he would give the Jeep to his 21-year-old son Dylan. But when he pressed, he broke a smile and said, “No!” He then went down the line of finalists, shaking hands with everyone. Only Lange was the Jeep winner, but they all shared the bond of being blood donors. Dr. David Smith, CEO of Community Blood Center/Community Tissue Services, welcomed the finalists to the Jeep Patriot Giveaway Event. He said the “Redefine the Meaning of Red, White and Blue” summer blood drive had benefited from the Jeep

Lange drawing, with nearly 25,000 people registered to give blood and nearly 2,100 first-time donors. “I want to thank you for what you have done,” said Smith, “Not for us — we’re just the middle men — but for the people you have helped who need and depend on the gift of life. We thank you and all our CBC donors.” Jeep winner Dan Lange credited his employer, Midmark, of Versailles, for holding blood drives, including the

drive where he made the donation that entered him into the Jeep drawing. “I really encourage everyone to donate blood,” Lange said. “It’s a great thing to do. I have children who donate blood, and where I work at Midmark we have blood drives. I encourage it.” The other nine finalists went home with a $50 gasoline gift card as a consolation prize. There were no other finalists from the northern part of the valley. In the “Redefine the Meaning of Red, White and Blue” summer blood drive, anyone who registered to donate between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends was automatically entered into the Jeep drawing.

Vogelezang leads three congregations BY TERRY PELLMAN JACKSON CENTER — Shannon Vogelezang knew from early childhood what she wanted to do, and she fulfilled her ambition. Now, the Rev. Shannon Vogelezang is a busy pastor, wife and mother serving three churches in Shelby County. A native of Michigan, Vogelezang has been in the pulpit on a permanent basis since July, although she was serving as an interim pastor for several months prior. She and her husband Robert and their 6-year-old daughter, Angelica, now reside in Piqua during the week and the parsonage near Emanuel Lutheran Church in Montra on weekends. She had served as the pastor at St. Johns Church in Piqua, after having previously served in Kansas. Vogelezang became a pastor 12 years ago.

PASTOR SHANNON Vogelezang stands in the pulpit at the Emannuel Church in Montra. She was among several candidates interviewed for the local post. She was originally going to pastor Emanuel in Montra and St. Mark in Clay Township, churches that had already partnered for more than 100 years. St. Jacob Church was added to her duties after some reorganization due to pastoral retirements. Vogelezang became

involved in the Lutheran Church while attending vacation Bible school as a youngster. That environment led to her to look far ahead in life to becoming a pastor. Her plans did face a detour. Although encouraged by a Lutheran minister topursue the ministry, she was later advised by another pastor that few women held

Veterans’ night planned JACKSON CENTER — The Outreach Ministry of Jackson Center United Methodist Church will offer a “Night Out For Our Veterans” to be held at the Jackson Center Family Life Center, 310 Davis St., on Nov. 10 beginning at 7 p.m. Featured speaker will be Ed Ball, executive director of Shelby County Veterans Services. Topics to be discussed will be veteran benefits

including who is eligible, benefits for surviving spouses, where and how to get the help you need, etc. If you are a veteran, a child or a spouse of a veteran or simply concerned about a veteran you know or love, you are strongly encouraged to attend. This will be the first of several such events to be held at the newly constructed Family Life Center. Future topics will include bullying

(separate sessions for both young people and parents), alcohol and other drug abuse (for those using as well as their family members), end of life issues and debt crisis. For further information contact the Rev. Sylvia Hull at the Methodist United Church, 596-6919, or outreach ministry team chairman Ron Leininger at 726-5756.

Grange members learn of holiday dinner MAPLEWOOD — During the business portion of the Oct. 11 Maplewood Grange meeting, Donna Wirz, chairwoman of the Women’s Activities Committee, distributed the 2011-12 monthly hostess schedule and announced the Christmas holiday dinner will be Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. Vic Hurley, a member of the executive committee, reported several repairs


such a roles, and encouraged her to pursue a vocation in social work. In fact, she did so for a while, working with developmentally disabled individuals after receiving her undergraduate degree from Wayne State University in Michigan. That childhood passion was still there, and Vogelezang states, “When God wants something, God makes it happen. All the doors opened that I needed for it to happen.” That call to the ministry was strong, and Vogelezang went on to receive her divinity degree from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus. That decision has brought her immense satisfaction. One quickly comes to sense that Vogelezang is a person who will be comfortable in almost any setting. And the Lord has sent her many places. The young pastor had her first date with Robert over dinner in Athens, Greece with the Parthenon in the background. A mutual friend had arranged for her to meet the gentleman from The Netherlands. Robert now works as a computer programmer for Lexis-Nexis, the large business services firm with a headquarters south of Dayton. The family lives in Piqua during the week, and moves to the Montra parsonage for the weekend. The pastor has studied in Israel, and traveled to Greece, Portugal, Egypt and Jordan and served on an outreach mission to Cuba, the lat-

ter trek involving bringing food and medicine. The pastor explains, “When you see those things, it changes your life. It inspires your life, and it makes you who you are. I think it brings energy to you when you see what you can do and be.” Her family has an international flavor: she speaks of her grandmother who was an Irish Protestant and would wear orange on St. Patrick’s Day. Her grandfather was Scottish. Now her daughter is learning Dutch at home so that she can converse with her paternal grandparents. But then “Angel” is also learning Spanish at the Montessori School in Troy where she attends classes with children whose parents came from several corners of the world. She wants her daughter to have a wellrounded life experience and to live life to the fullest “under the guidance of her Lord.” The pastor speaks Spanish as well, along with Hebrew and Koine Greek. She is also conversational in Dutch. Her husband speaks Dutch, French and German in addition to English. Vogelezang says of the task of pasturing three churches, “It’s a balancing act. I always say, I don’t like to have too much time on my hands.” She recalls how her grandmother would say that idle hands were the devil’s workshop. That is no problem for her as she keeps her schedule in order for what is going

on at each church. The pastor emphasizes, “I think it’s been a wonderful experience, since they are three really great churches.” She praises the level of cooperation demonstrated by the congregations. “They are awesome people.” She adds, “I have a good husband, and I think that makes a difference.” One example is that the three churches will be on a rotating schedule for worship times. For three months, each will commence worship at 8:30, 9:45 or 11 a.m. and so on. Vogelezang expects this to result in some increased interaction between those who may have never met before, or did not know each other very well. So far, the new pastor has not encountered scheduling conflicts for weddings or funerals. As the congregations are not large, she does not anticipate such problems. She notes that the congregation members work together to accommodate each other. Vogelezang adds that this quality reminds her of those she served in Kansas, “and that makes a world of difference.” Vogelezang is a believer in the notion that a job is best when it brings you happiness. That is how she approaches each day. She says of preaching, “I’m passionate about it because I love it. It brings joy to me.” She hopes that those she pastors share that joy and find it exciting.

Nicky Schaffer, lecturer, had a contest on autumn articles for all members to participate in. A social time closed the evening. Bob and Marie Russell served as hosts.

To the editor: Volunteers from Radio Maria, WHJM, would like to express our appreciation to the many people involved in our latest fundraising events. Without their generosity, we would not have been so successful. To begin, we want to express our gratitude for the numerous donations of baked goods that we sold at our open house. It was obvious from the quantity and quality of the donations that these good people care about Radio Maria. We also appreciate the extra help from volunteers whom helped at the open house, bearing the cold weather on those couple of cold days! Secondly, our “snack wheel” required the help of countless people who donated snack items. We received help from St. Augustine, Holy Redeemer, Marion Catholic Community, St. Nicholas and St. Louis Youth Ministry, and three St. Henry groups — Altar Rosary Sodality, K of C and Daughters of Isabella. Their donations were vital to our Oktoberfest booth. Students from Minster High School that are members of the Student Outreach Service Club ( SOS ) had an important part in helping run the booth, too. Our float got a makeover this year and earned us the first-place senior civic award. Ben Dwenger, David Slonkosky, Mimi Burke, Larry Topp, Fred and Marlene Rutschilling all contributed their time and skill for this project. Lastly, our raffle was a great success. We are so appreciative of the 47 businesses that donated more than 60 prizes to make this our biggest raffle to date and Globus Printing for the tickets. These fundraising efforts have helped Radio Maria, WHJM, meet its monthly expenses. However, this is only one month in the whole year. We are constantly working on funding each month’s expenses. It is our hope that our listeners would prayerfully consider ways to continue supporting Radio Maria. One of those ways is through the ARMS 21 program where an individual or group makes a monthly pledge of $21. Perhaps you are a member of a group or organization that could become an ARMS 21 member. Contact Radio Maria at (888) 408-0201, or visit their website at, or your local station WHJM at (419) 628-8870. Polly Barga Radio Maria Volunteer 10 Fieldcrest Road Minster

New toys needed To the editor: With the holiday season rapidly approaching, the Western Ohio Marine Corps League will once again be placing our toy boxes at locations in Sidney and throughout Shelby County. Your donation of a new toy will warm the hearts of those children less fortunate this year. Any business wishing to sponsor a drop-off point may contact me at 492-9043. These past few years your donations have helped thousands of children in Shelby County. I want to stress that all toys stay in this county as rumors otherwise were circulated last year. This gets bigger and bigger each year and it is due only because of your generosity. Remembering the reason for the season — have a wonderful holiday! Jon Johnson 1300 University Drive

Defeat Issue 2 To the editor: This is a rebuttal to state Sen. Keith Faber’s remarks to the Sidney Rotary Club concerning Issue 2. The senator pointed out three main issues: health insurance premiums, performance evaluations and pension contributions. I am the spouse of a proud firefighter/paramedic serving the citizens of Sidney. I know for a fact that my spouse pays health insurance premiums (which does not include eye or dental), is subject to performance reviews annually and contributes to the pension system. What the senator is not telling us is that the state government is attempting to impose regulations on local government under the guise of responsibility. The lack of responsibility has put some cities and state agencies into financial distress and Issue 2 is a bailout for them. Issue 2 provides the ability to hide behind law instead of being responsible managers of our money and services. The city of Sidney does not need more state regulation. The city of Sidney has been responsible to the citizens of Sidney by reducing the work staff by more than 10 percent throughout the city departments, including police and fire. The city has maintained great service with fewer employees. Performance reviews are conducted annually. Your employees pay their share for health insurance and pension contributions. Join me in defeat of Issue 2. Please vote “no” on the issue. Teresa Haller 550 Jefferson St.

Buck Eyes An inside look at Ohio State football

Grading the Buckeyes High marks not abundant at mid season something out of just a bad throw the way Dane Sanzenbacher could last year. Grade: D

By JIM NAVEAU 419-993-2087 COLUMBUS — Ohio State’s football team has had quite a few tests already this season and some of them have come back with red marks all over them. This week brings an off week for the Buckeyes after a 17-7 win at Illinois last Saturday. Then they take on Wisconsin in a night game at Ohio Stadium. Before that, though, it’s time for some mid-term grades for the first half of a sometimes trying season that has followed a tumultuous offseason.

Here’s how OSU has graded out so far: QUARTERBACKS Braxton Miller has played well in his last two games, against Nebraska before he suffered a sprained ankle and at Illinois. He is a threat as a runner but his passing still has a long way to go. He might be all that is standing between Ohio State and complete disaster at quarterback, though. If there were an award for least accurate Ohio State quarterback ever, his backup Joe Bauserman would have retired the trophy with several throws that had people in the third row ducking to get out of the way. Grade: C-

SPECIAL TEAMS Drew Basil (8 for 10 on field goals) and punter Ben Buchanan (41.3) have been reliable. Basil has hit his last eight field goal attempts in a row after missing the first four attempts of his career dating back to last season. Kick returns and kick coverage have been good. By this time last season, Ohio State had given up three kick or punt returns for touchdowns with a season-shattering kickoff return by Wisconsin still in the future. Grade: B

OFFENSIVE LINE Consistency has not been the calling card of this group. Even in an overall good game at Illinois, they blocked well in the running game but allowed four sacks. Getting left tackle Mike Adams back from his five-game suspension the last two weeks has brought immediate improvement. However, OSU’s nine rushing touchdowns are tied for ninth in the Big Ten and the 19 sacks it has allowed are tied for 11th. Only Indiana has given up more sacks in the Big Ten. Grade: C-

DEFENSIVE LINE John Simon (3 sacks, 7.5 tackles for losses) and Johnathan Hankins (2 sacks, 6.5 tackles for losses) give opposing offensive lines a lot to think about. But with end Nathan Williams out for the season after two knee surgeries, there is a major gap in the pass rush department. To try to compensate for that, OSU has moved the versatile Simon around to different positions on the line. Grade: B

Head Coach Luke Fickell


Andrew Sweat (43 tackles, 5 tackles for losses) has filled some of the sizable hole left when Brian Rolle and Ross Homan Quite a few people predicted Dan Herron could lose his spot as Ohio State’s No. 1 running back before he returned departed, but first-year starters Etienne from an NCAA suspension. But the reality of Carlos Hyde, Sabino and Storm Klein and the rest of the linebackers appear to be learning on the Jordan Hall and Rod Smith hasn’t lived up to the hype. Herron returned with a big game at Illinois when he rushed job. Freshman Ryan Shazier looks like a for 114 yards and scored a touchdown. player who could get more playing time Hyde and Hall have been adequate as fill-ins, but the the second half of the season. Highly much-anticipated Smith has not been seen much since touted freshman Curtis Grant has not losing fumbles in the first two games. And Hyde’s playing been a factor at all. time was drastically reduced when Herron returned. Grade: C Grade: B-



RECEIVERS Open receivers have been a rarity for Ohio State this season. Blame inexperience, maybe a lack of speed in some cases, and having No. 1 receiver DeVier Posey suspended until the last two games of the season. Tight end Jake Stoneburner has been the most productive pass catcher with six touchdowns in his 12 catches. But there is nobody who is even close to being a “go-to” guy, the guy who can make something out of nothing, or

Depth has been the strength of Ohio State’s defensive backfield. Cornerback Bradley Roby has three interceptions and could be emerging as the playmaker here. The DBs might have been hampered a bit so far by the fact last year’s front seven put more pressure on opposing offenses than this year’s group has been able to do. Grade: B

They say memories are golden Well maybe that’s true But we never wanted memories We only wanted you. A million times we’ve needed you A million times we’ve cried If love alone could have saved you You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly In death we love you still In our hearts you hold a special place No one could ever fill. If tears could build a staircase And heartache build a lane We’d walk the path to heaven And bring you back again. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again.

Lady Jackets win No guarantee Fickell 1-0, meet Troy has the job in 2012 in sectional finals SPRINGBOR0 — An early goal by Morgan Knasel held up to give the Sidney Lady Jackets a 1-0 victory over Springboro in Division I Sectional soccer action at Springboro Thursday night. The win advances Sidney to the sectional finals, where, for the third time, the Lady Jackets will play an opponent for the second time this season. It’s a rematch with Troy, who the Lady Jackets beat just a week ago to win the Greater Western Ohio Conference North championship. Troy advanced by upsetting No. 3 seed Wayne 3-2 ino vertime. The game will be played Monday at Centerville at 7 p.m., with the winner advancing to the district on Oct. 27. Sidney opened tournament play by beating Fairmont, a team it lost to 4-2 during the regular season. Then Thursday, the Lady Jackets faced a Springboro team they battled to a 0-0 tie early in the season. Springboro entered the

game with a 7-4-5 record compated to Sidney’s 11-4-2 mark, but Springboro was actually the higher seed at No. 4 compated to No. 6 for the Lady Jackets. “The first time we played them, we had the shots but couldn’t finish,” said Sidney coach Stacey Goffena. “We knew we had to finish at least one of them tonight and we were able to get one right off the bat.” The goal came just seven minutes into the contest by Knasel, off an assist by Monique Hanayik. “It was really close,” said Goffena. “We’re two very comparable teams. We played well against them the first time, but that was the third game of the season, so we didn’t know what to expect this time. But we played well clearing the ball.” She praised the play of keeper Carolyn VanMatre as well as sweeper Knasel. “The whole team played well, but Carolyn and Morgan really had good games. And Morgan (Knasel) played well up top.”

Lady Rockets upset No. 2 seed TC North BROOKVILLE — Anna, the No. 6 seed, upset No. 2 seed Tri-County North to advance to a Division III Sectional championship in high school girls volleyball Thursday. It was a marathon match, with Anna winning the first game 25-19, then losing two in a row 27-25, 25-22. The Lady Rockets bounced back to win the fourth game 25-23 and the deciding game 19-17. “It was a great game,” said Anna coach Amy Cobb. “We stepped up and played as a team and I think that really made a difference.” The statistics bear her out. Three players finished in double figures in kills, with Natalie Billing having 19, Danielle Schulze 12 and Megan Fogt 11. Rachel Noffsinger added seven and Morgan Clark six. Schulze also had 21 assists and Billing 13 blocks, while Haley Steinbrunner had 31 assists and Courtney Landis 32 digs. Fogt also had four blocks and Noffsinger three. Anna will play in the sectional championship Saturday at 3:30 against Versailles, who beat No. 3-seed West LibertySalem in three Thursday. • Lehman advanced to Saturday’s sectional finals by defeating Xenia Christian in semifinal action Thursday at Tipp City. The Lady Cavs, now 20-3, will play at 4:30 Saturday against either Ansonia or Mechanicsburg. Ellie Waldsmith led Lehman with 10 kills and

Morgan Schmtmeyer and Lindsey Speaman had nine each. Paxton Hatcher added five. Andrea Thobe had 30 assists and Maria Yannuccci six aces. • Botkins dropped out of tournament play Wednesday night, losing to Newton 25-10, 25-17, 27-25. Erin George had 14 digs and two aces for the Lady Trojans, Maria Goettemoeller had eight digs and three aces, and Logan Pitts had five kills, 11 digs and five blocks. • Riverside advanced to the sectional finals against Russia with a 25-16, 25-14, 25-10 win over Cedarville Wednesday. Tory Thompson had 23 kills and 14 digs, Bailey Oliver 24 assists, Chelsea Giles 17 digs and three aces, Morgan Robison 12 digs, Whitney Jenkins five kills and Mara Ledley eight digs. • New Bremen won in tournament play over Wayne Trace 25-21, 25-21, 9-25, 2520. Haley Moeller had 10 kills and 20 digs, Jesse Rindler eight kills, Meagan Brandt five aces and 16 digs, and Karli Jones four aces and 31 assists. Bremen plays Lima Catholic Saturday at 7:15. • Minster lost to Marion Local in tournament play 2517, 25-14, 25-20. Sami Brown led Minster with nine kills and Claire McGowan added seven. Kassi Brown had five. Regan Hahn finished with 21 assists, and Dana Stucke had 13 digs.

JC sweeps junior high titles The County junior high volleyball tournaments concluded this week, and Jackson Center won both the seventh and eighth grade championships. The seventh grade won by beating Houston, Botkins and Fairlawn. The wins gave the team a

perfect 20-0 record this season. The Lady Tigers won all their matches in two games. The eighth grade crown went to Jackson Center after wins over Botkins, Fort Loramie and Anna (championship). The eighth graders finished with an 18-2 record.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — What’s brewing with the 2011 Ohio State Buckeyes ... BUCKEYES BUZZ: So, 4 1/2 months after Luke Fickell took the interim head coaching job, Ohio State released his contract to The Associated Press on Thursday. There were no huge surprises. Many of the details — he’s being paid $775,000 — were already widely known. The contract does make it clear that Fickell is not guaranteed a job after the agreement ends Jan. 31, 2012. “This agreement is renewable solely upon an offer from Ohio State and an acceptance by coach,” the contract stipulates. “This agreement in no way grants coach a claim to tenure in employment.” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith has said that Fickell will be a candidate for the permanent job but that the school will do a nationwide search to find its next head coach. Rumors of potential candidates — Urban Meyer is the hottest name — have been circulating ever since 10-year coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign on May 30 and Fickell took his place. Fickell’s base salary is $400,000 and he is paid $200,000 for media obligations and $175,000 from Ohio State’s agreement with Nike. Tressel made more than $3.5 million last year. The Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) are off this week before returning to action at home on Oct. 29 against fourth-ranked and unbeaten Wisconsin. The contract includes bonuses for playing in the Big Ten championship game and making a bowl, in addition to providing Fickell with 12 tickets to each home Ohio State football game and two to each home basketball game. He also gets a car and membership in a pool for his family. Of course, the contract also points out that, in wording similar to that in Tressel’s agreements with the university, Fickell can be fired for not reporting potential NCAA violations. START AND STOP: Just when OT Mike Adams returns from a five-game suspension and gets a couple of games under his belt, the Buckeyes have a bye.

OHIO STATE'S Luke Fickell coaches against Michigan State on Oct. 1 in Columbus. “It’s just another week for me to get out there and practice with my team,” Adams said this week. “To be honest, every day in practice was just how it was in a game for me when I was suspended. Not being able to be next to the guys I’ve been playing with for years was pretty rough. Just being able to go out with them every day is what I look forward to.” He said his five-game layoff has him feeling ready for the stretch run. “I’m definitely a little more fresh. But I did train pretty hard while I was suspended, so it’s not like I’m Mr. Freshlegs running around out there,” he said with a laugh. “It definitely feels a little different. I don’t have all the memories from the first five weeks, but that’s what we’re doing, going out here to build some now.” NEED A QB? At last week’s media day for men’s basketball, star point guard Aaron Craft — also an AP AllOhio selection as a QB at Findlay Liberty-Benton —was asked if he has ever considered playing football again. The Buckeyes, you know, could use a dependable QB. “I have heard it a couple times. Mostly it’s my friends joking around,” he said.

“Those guys (on the football team) are doing the best they can.” Does Craft ever long to play football? “I do. Watching those guys, I went home and watched a few high school games too,” he said. “It definitely makes you miss it a little bit. Once we start practicing, you start being more comfortable and understand it’s basketball season.” NEXT STEP: A federal judge is allowing former Ohio State and NFL quarterback Art Schlichter to attend weekly counseling while on house arrest awaiting sentencing for fraud. The order issued Thursday in Columbus says the 51-yearold Schlichter must go directly to and from the Tuesday evening sessions and may not run errands or make other side trips. Authorities say the former Indianapolis Colts quarterback defrauded more than 50 people in a million-dollar sports ticket scheme. Schlichter, whose NFL career was derailed by a gambling addiction, has pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges. Plea agreements that call for him to serve about 10 years behind bars still need the judge’s approval.

Dalton emerges as leader CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals’ offense would huddle during training camp and the linemen and receivers would lean toward quarterback Andy Dalton, trying to hear the play call. More than once, Dalton they had to tell him to speak up — and use a deeper tone, too. In other words, stop sounding like a rookie. “For the first four weeks of training camp, we were trying to see if we could actually hear him,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. Nobody has trouble hearing him now. The second-round draft pick has quickly grown from bashful rookie into the face of the franchise. Dalton has played so well during Cincinnati’s surprising 4-2 start that

owner Mike Brown felt comfortable trading franchise quarterback Carson Palmer to Oakland last Tuesday. “The principal development has been Andy Dalton, who has shown himself to be one of the best and most exciting young quarterbacks in the NFL,” Brown said in a statement. “We have a good, young football team, and Andy can be the cornerstone of that team for a long time.” Dalton’s quick emergence has been the biggest surprise in Cincinnati’s start. Nobody expected much from him the first few games, given that he couldn’t learn the offense or work with teammates over the summer because of the NFL’s lockout. Palmer told the team he wasn’t coming back after a 412 season, deciding he’d had enough of one of the NFL’s most forlorn franchises. Dalton never talked to Palmer, who could have changed his

mind and reported at any time. Even so, Dalton was given Palmer’s locker — the first one by the door — and knew everyone was watching to see if he could measure up. “I think it is something I had to prove, but I never felt that way coming in,” Dalton said. “I felt they were very welcoming to me and have made my job a whole lot easier.” By the second game of the season, Dalton had won them over. He hurt his wrist during the first half of a season-opening win at Cleveland, forcing him to the bench while Bruce Gradkowski pulled off a quick-snap touchdown play to win it. A week later, the Bengals went to Denver and watched Dalton nearly pull one out. He screamed encouragement at teammates on the sideline, showing a different side of himself, and came up short on the final drive of a 24-22 loss.

The blame game

CONNECTICUT WOMEN’S coach Geno Auriemma speaks with reporters during the NCAA college basketball team's media day in Storrs, Conn., on Wednesday. Big East is trying to become a 12-team football league. He reiterated on Thursday that the two schools, which are contractually bound to the league for the next two seasons, will not be allowed out early. “If Notre Dame had come in as a football and basketball school when they came in, we wouldn’t have a problem. Miami wouldn’t have left. Virginia Tech wouldn’t have left. Boston College wouldn’t have left. We probably wouldn’t

have any of these issues, would we?” Auriemma said. The conference’s plan to get to 12 members includes Navy, Air Force and Boise State as football-only members and Central Florida, Houston and SMU for all sports, though that has not been made public by the league. The remaining football members are Connecticut, Cincinnati, South Florida, Louisville, West Virginia and Rutgers.

A Notre Dame spokesman declined to comment on Auriemma’s remarks. “We’ve got one school that holds the future of our league in the palm of their hand and they’re not really that concerned about it,” the UConn coach said. “They’re looking out for their best interest and I don’t blame them. But join us in football and then look out for your best interest. I applaud that. Every school has a right to do that. I just don’t like the way we’ve gone about it.” While the Big East was built on basketball, Auriemma knows that expansion and conference realignment has always been driven by football. “It doesn’t matter what we think because every decision being made is being made from a football standpoint,” he said. “But if you know, that you as a school, have the ability to put a whole bunch of schools at ease and have the Catholic mentality of, ‘We’re here to serve and help...,’” the coach said.

Hillis talks ‘quiet now’ BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns president Mike Holmgren has tired of the drama surrounding Peyton Hillis and his contract. On Thursday, he did his best to end it. Holmgren said negotiations between the Browns and the bruising back and Madden cover boy are “quiet now,” but the team remains open to signing Hillis, who rushed for nearly 1,200 yards last season, to a long-term extension. Unable to reach agreement on a new deal, Holmgren said agent Kennard McGuire and the team have decided to let the season play out. “No one has called off negotiations,” Holmgren said. “No one has said, ‘Ok, let’s wait until the end.’ It’s still kind of in that floating area where you’re waiting for a phone call or you’re going to make a phone call. I don’t think anybody pushed anybody against the wall on contract talks and said ‘We’re done.’ It’s kind of quiet.” Holmgren said the sides have agreed to “let Peyton play, let the dust settle and see what happens.” That might be the best thing for the Browns (23) in what to this point has been another tumultuous season. Holmgren met with local media for the first time since training camp and addressed a wide range of topics, including Hillis, quarterback Colt McCoy’s future, first-year coach Pat Shurmur’s performance through five games, Holmgren’s own commitment to Cleveland and his plans to build the Browns into consistent winners. Holmgren was in high demand this week. His former team, the Seattle

CLEVELAND BROWNS president Mike Holmgren prowls the field before a game this season. Seahawks, will play the Browns on Sunday and Holmgren acknowledged “there’s a little extra there” as he awaits the matchup. Hillis has been at the center of controversy for weeks. In addition to his unresolved contract matter, the 25-year-old sat out the club’s Sept. 25 game with strep throat, a decision he said he made on advice from McGuire. In the aftermath, there were reports, citing unnamed sources, which claimed some of Hillis’ teammates felt his contract was a factor in him not playing. Hillis, whose role in the offense has diminished this season, was forced to defend himself, and Shurmur endured an awkward news conference in which he said it “was his understanding” that Hillis was sick. The issue seemed over, but resurfaced after Hillis was injured in last week’s loss at Oakland and stood on the sideline. The Browns ini-

tially said Hillis was being kept out the game by Shurmur before announcing he had injured his hamstring. The delay in getting an injury update to the press box and TV commentators led to suspicions of a cover-up, which Holmgren strongly denied. “Peyton was sick in that first game, OK?” Holmgren said. “He couldn’t play. He was sick. Most recently he had the hamstring and I found out that everyone was concerned during the game on Sunday, ‘What’s happening? He’s not in there.’ It’s not this major conspiracy deal going on. It’s just he had an injury. He tried to go again. He couldn’t go. It’s something that happens every Sunday with any number of teams all the time. But because of the previous stuff that happened with Peyton it became more noteworthy or newsworthy, but that’s where it sits.” Holmgren also scoffed at reports the Browns were interested in trading Hillis before Tuesday’s deadline. “There’s no way I’m trading Peyton Hillis,” Holmgren said. “Why would I do that? Why would I trade one of our best players?” Hillis was not available in the locker room following Holmgren’s news conference. He hasn’t practiced the past two days and it’s not known if he’ll play Sunday against the Seahawks (2-3). Hillis was hoping to be the next Browns player to get an extension, following Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas, tight end Evan Moore, defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin and linebacker Chris Gocong, Hillis is in the final year of his rookie contract, which will pay him

$600,000 this season. He can be a free agent in March and Holmgren said the Browns will pursue Hillis even if he tests the open market. On other issues: • Holmgren praised Shurmur, who didn’t have the benefit of an offseason program because of the NFL lockout and has had to navigate through some injuries and “a storm cloud” already this season. “He’s doing fine,” Holmgren said. “He’s a solid guy. I believe in him 100 percent.” • The Browns will likely hire an offensive coordinator for next season, Holmgren said. Shurmur has also been handling that position, which he previously held in St. Louis. Even if someone new is brought in, Holmgren expects Shurmur to keep his play-calling duties. • Holmgren, 63, will consider staying beyond his five-year contract in Cleveland. “I am all in,” he said. “I want to feel like I’m doing a good job. I don’t want to waste anybody’s time. We have a plan and to realize our goals and our plan, it takes some time. I don’t know what the future holds, but absolutely, I want to be here.” Y o u r

Auriemma blames Notre Dame for realignment issues NEW YORK (AP) — UConn coach Geno Auriemma thinks that the Big East conference’s realignment issues could have been solved years ago with one simple move — Notre Dame’s football team joining the league. “They’ve been in our league 17 years, so how long are we going to date before we just decide this ain’t working. And I’m not happy about it,” Auriemma said at the conference’s annual basketball women’s media day Thursday. “That’s not the opinion of the University of Connecticut, the Big East Conference. ... That’s just Geno Auriemma’s opinion.” The Irish, whose basketball women’s team is picked first in the conference’s preseason poll, have had all their sports in the Big East with the exception of football — which has remained independent. Last month, Syracuse and Pittsburgh announced they were leaving the Big East to join the Atlantic Coast Conference. Commissioner John Marinatto said the

Agency appoints new CEO DELPHOS — The Board of Directors of Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth has announced the appointment of Dr. Richard R. Nedelkoff as chief executive officer. Nedelkoff will provide strategic leadership and oversee organizational operations in SAFY locations across eight states. He assumes the position from interim CEO Ben Brooks. Nedelkoff comes to SAFY with more than 30 years experience in human services and public safety. He previously served as the chief executive officer or chief operating officer of three different statewide and national nonprofits providing services to youth and families. Additionally, he has managed agencies with budgets as large as $6 billion and directed organizations with more than 4,500 employees. He is an internationally recognized expert in the field of juvenile justice, child welfare and human services. Nedelkoff was previously appointed by former President George W. Bush and unanimously confirmed the U.S. Senate to oversee the Bureau of Justice Assistance, an arm of the U.S. Department of Justice. He was later appointed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry to begin reforms and oversee the Texas Youth Commission. More than the traditional foster care agency, SAFY is a private notfor-profit organization focusing on treatment, intervention, adoption and placement of children whose intensive needs cannot be managed through traditional foster care, agency officials said. Today, SAFY programs and services go beyond therapeutic foster care providing an array of collaborative services including inhome and school-based therapy, special medical services, mental health services, respite care, sexual offender treatment, independent living, positive transitions and juvenile justice.

The store is open daily during the Halloween season and features weekly sales. Lacy Messman, executive assistant at Halloween City, said there are many ways to change costumes. “You don’t come in to buy a costume, you come in to create a character,” said Messman. “There are just so many options. There was someone who got a Gumby costume and was going to make it a zombie Gumby.” It appears that zombies are popular this year for adults. Also popular are the Angry Birds costumes, from the popular mobile phone app, and a Charlie Sheen “winning” costume. Even with new trends, the most popular costumes are ones that many people may recognize. According to, the top costumes for men include Jake Sully from “Avatar,” Capt.

Firefighters offer Halloween safety tips While it can be fun dressing up, it’s important to make sure everyone stays safe during Halloween. The following safety tips are from Sidney Fire and Emergency Services. • When choosing a costume, stay away from billowing or long, trailing fabric. If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eyeholes are large enough so they can see out. • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume. • Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper are highly flammable. Keep these and other decorations well away from all open flames and heat sources, in-

cluding light bulbs and heaters. • It is safest to use a flashlight or battery-operated candle in a jack-o’lantern. If you use a real candle, use extreme caution. Make sure children are watched at all times when candles are lit. When lighting candles inside jack-o’lanterns, use long, fireplace-style matches or a utility lighter. Be sure to place lit pumpkins well away from anything that can burn and far enough out of way of trick-or-treaters, doorsteps, walkways and yards. • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. • Tell children to stay away from

open flames. Be sure they know how to stop, drop and roll if their clothing catches fire. (Have them practice, stopping immediately, dropping to the ground, covering their face with hands and rolling over and over to put the flames out). • Use flashlights as alternatives to candles or torch lights when decorating walkways and yards. They are much safer for trick-or-treaters, whose costumes may brush against the lighting. If your children are going to Halloween parties at others’ homes, have them look for ways out of the home and plan how they would get out in an emergency.
