The Undecided ——

Why can’t they choose already? BY CONNIE CASS Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Who are these people who still can’t make up their minds? They’re undecided voters like Kelly Cox, who spends his days repairing the big rigs that haul central California’s walnuts, grapes, milk and

more across America. He doesn’t put much faith in either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. But he figures he’s got plenty of time — a little more than a week — to settle on one of them before Nov. 6. And he definitely does plan to vote. “I’ll do some online research,” said Cox, co-owner of

a Delhi, Calif., truck repair shop. “I don’t have time to watch presidential debates because it’s a lot of garbage anyway. They’re not asking the questions that the people want to hear.” About 5 percent of Americans with solid plans to vote have yet to pick their presidential candidate, according

Halloween is upon us once again, complete with candy, trick-or-treat, costumes, ghosts, witches, and a rash of scary movies. But not all ghost stories are all that spooky. Some are even funny! How about this? Do you think you could finish the following line: “Who ya gonna’ call…?” That’s right, “ghost busters!” The movie Ghost Busters from the 1980s, staring Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, and the popular theme song of the same name sung by Ray Parker Jr., left an indelible mark upon pop culture. A movie about three unemployed

parapsychologists who start a ghost removal service made for a great laugh. But, there are people who take ghosts and spirits very seriously, and they have a passion for investigating and finding them. In fact, there is one such group of ghost hunters right here in Shelby County. They call themselves the Ohio Ghost Hunters of Sidney, a nonprofit, paranormal investigation team that is associated with a group based in Toledo called the Ohio Ghost Hunters of Toledo. The Sidney group currently consists of three members: Cy Baber, the lead investigator; Tanya Geier-Seger; and Dustin Deardurff. See GHOST/Page 2A

U.S. prepares for superstorm BY WAYNE PARRY Associated Press DUCK, N.C. (AP) — A year after being walloped by Hurricane Irene, residents rushed to put away boats, harvest crops and sandbag boardwalks Friday as the Eastern Seaboard braced for a rare megastorm that experts said would cause much greater havoc.

Hurricane Sandy, moving north from the Caribbean, was expected to make landfall Monday night near the Delaware coast, then hit two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm that could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow. Experts said the storm would be wider and stronger than last year’s Irene, which caused

more than $15 billion in damage, and could rival the worst East Coast storm on record. Officials did not mince words, telling people to be prepared for several days without electricity. Jersey Shore beach towns began issuing voluntary evacuations and protecting boardwalks. Atlantic Beach casinos made contingency plans to close, and offiSee STORM/Page 8A

President Obama doesn’t understand small businesses; Mitt Romney does, and he’ll help boost the economy if he makes it to the White House. That was the theme as the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) “I Built It” tour stopped in Sidney Friday morning. Electing Republican presidential candidate Romney is the goal of the NFIB, an organization representing 350,000 small and independent business owners from across the nation. The seven-state “I Built It” tour paused at Sollmann Electric, where owner Denny Sollmann, addressing a group of fellow small-business owners, repeated remarks Obama made earlier this year that inspired the bus tour: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Someone else made that happen.” The Obama campaign has objected to the way the “you didn’t build that” quote has been used by the Romney campaign, saying it was taken out of context of a longer statement in which the president referred to infrastructure and other ways in which businesses are helped. But Friday in Sidney, the “I Built It” tour participants went beyond the quote to argue that Romney’s business background is what the country needs. Sollmann became emotional as he recalled how he was asked earlier this year to do an ad for the Romney campaign. “I thought long and hard about it,” he said. “Then I thought about my son who would like to become the next president of Sollmann Electric Co. I also thought about my other two sons and my grandchildren. I did the ad so that hopefully they will have the same opportunities that I have had — work long, hard See NFIB/Page 6A

Paul Turner, Baber’s former co-leader, died last year, and his girlfriend, also a former member of the team, later moved away. “I’ve always believed,” Baber said when asked how he got started in the field of paranormal investigation. It was personal experience that stoked that belief. All three members of the team resoundingly confirmed that most ghost hunters have had some kind of personal experience that motivated them to seek the truth about their experiences.

Ghost shows seeing the After plethora of ghost shows on TV, Baber discovered a personal passion and was inspired to become a paranormal investigator himself. “My wife found out about a guy in Toledo who had formed the organization Ohio Ghost Hunters of Toledo,” Baber said. He contacted the Toledo chapter and asked if he could start his own chapter in Sidney. The response? “Go for it! Pick a team.” Baber wanted to be affiliated with the Toledo chapter because the name was known. The two groups will even help each other out and work together at times. Baber first contacted Turner who became coleaders of the group. Then, because of a previous news article about her, Cy reached out to Geir-Seger, the group’s “intuitive,” an individual who purports to have the ability to see and communicate with the spirits of dead people. When Baber’s new ghost hunting group met for the first time they realized immediately the chemistry between them, and that “it just fit.” That was around two years ago and they’ve been a team ever since. Sadly though, Turner passed away last year. So, Deardurff, who’s known Baber since he was a kid, joined the group.

Investigations There are a couple of ways in which Ohio Ghost Hunters of Sidney may get the opportunity to ply their trade. Someone may call with a suspicion of paranormal activity, or the group may ask to investigate a given location they suspect might have ghost activity. The first thing they do is gather information and do a walkthrough on the premises. After that they send



Equipment Baber and company will use various pieces of equipment as part or their investigations. There is the K2 meter — a device that reads magnetic or EMF fields — digital cameras, and digital video and audio recorders. The digital technology is used not because of necessity but for clarity. In addition, part of their investigative arsenal is a laser grid, a device the size of a pen that shoots laser beams in all directions to see if the spirit or ghost will break the grid. The team explained that the reason for these various devices is that the ghosts purportedly exist on energy and light wavelengths not easily directly detected through normal human senses but can be detected indirectly by use of the tools. These Ghost Hunters

are not “ghost busters,” as in the movie where they can capture and get rid of ghosts in a given location. Baber and company explained the team’s goal is to make a confirmation of paranormal activity, and then educate people on how to deal with the situation. “We want to come in like family and give the client validation,” Baber said. They want to help by demonstrating that the client isn’t crazy or imagining things.

Respect “We’re here with total respect. We try to find the history. It gives you a baseline.” Baber said. And “we only make it public if someone gives us permission.” Ohio Ghost The Hunters of Sidney’s first investigation as a team was the Great Stone Castle, a local bed and breakfast in Sidney. In this instance, Baber called to request the location for an investigation: “I mentioned we were a ghost team and that we’d love to investigate. They were all for it.” Baber’s team of ghost hunters were shown around and told by the owners that they were sensing things, and that their younger girls were also sensing something. So the team split up into two groups. According to the team, they got two voices on the digital audio recorder, a female and a male voice. Turner, who took a photo in a closet in the basement, is purported to have captured the full apparition of a little boy. During the investigation, Baber claims to have smelled the sweet smell of something like cigar, or pipe smoke. Then he “heard a faint whisper say ‘smell.’” And he “heard a laugh and a taunt, ‘na na na na na’, mocking me. And then I heard a second say ‘ssshhhhh.’” So the next time there is something strange in the neighborhood, who are you going to call?

Geier-Seger, the group’s intuitive, through with little or no information to see if she senses, or sees, anything to confirm the information that the other team members collected. Baber said that Geir-Seger will often not only come up with the same information on her own, but in one case, she reported an occurrence that the client had not even shared with the group but had actually experienced. After that they set up a time for an investigation, because, according to the team, people can sometimes mistake sensafrom normal tions energy sources, such as high energy output leakage from bare or poorly insulated wires in an old house, for paranormal activity.

Ohio to appeal court ruling on provisional ballots

Suggested Retail $1599.95

l l l l l l l

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s top elections official is appealing a federal ruling that expands the conditions under which provisional ballots are counted in the presidential swing state. U.S. District Judge Algenon Marbley ruled this week that provisional ballots cast not just in the wrong precinct but in the wrong polling location altogether must still be counted. A lawyer for a union that sued the state over the issue said as many as 8,000 voters cast such ballots in 2008.

Cupp askes GOP to pull ‘rapist’ ad BY JULIE CARR SMYTH Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Supreme Court Justice Robert Cupp called on the state Republican Party on Friday to pull a TV ad that accuses his election opponent of sympathizing with rapists, after the spot was rebuked by the state bar association. A GOP spokesman said the party has no plans to pull the spot, airing in media markets statewide. The commercial targets a 12-year-old appellate court ruling by Cupp’s opponent, Democrat Bill O’Neill, which reversed a rape conviction and sent the case back for re-trial because no expert witness was called for the defendant. The ad states, “When crime occurs, victims deserve justice but, as a judge, Bill O’Neill expressed sympathy for rapists.” O’Neill said in the decision that “Rape is a crime of violence which ultimately devastates

the lives of at least two people” — the victim and the perpetrator, who is “labeled for life.” In a strongly worded letter Friday, the chair of the Ohio State Bar Association’s advertising monitoring committee said the panel voted unanimously Thursday that the ad violates association standards by harming the integrity of the judicial system and eroding the public trust in jurists. Chair Maxine Thomas wrote that Cupp’s cleancampaign pledge required him to go beyond distancing himself from the commercial, as he’d already done, and to actively work to have the ad pulled down. Cupp quickly did so. “Justice Cupp and his campaign disavowed and criticized the independent state party ad the moment we found out about it, and we call on the state party to remove it from all forms of public distribution,” Mark spokesman Weaver said. spokesman GOP Henderson Matthew

said the ad was shot in a studio by Columbusbased The Strategy Group for Media. The consultancy’s co-founder, Rex Elsass, also works for U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, a Republican from Missouri, who’s drawn attention for his assertion that the female body can shut down pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.” Henderson said the party stands by the Cupp ad. “The ad is based on O’Neill’s own words and he said rape ultimately devastates the lives of two people,” Henderson said. “Judges speak through their opinions and we feel it’s entirely appropriate, proper and fair to bring those opinions to light during a campaign.” O’Neill has said he stands by that and his other rulings during 10 years on the appellate bench. Polling shows Cupp and O’Neill in a tight race, though Cupp is an incumbent and O’Neill is accepting no campaign contributions.

Rose Mary Kinninger Rose Mary Kinninger, 86, of Sidney, died Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012, at her residence. She was born July 15, 1926, to Charles and Mary Kay (Chappie) George in Darke County. On Aug. 25, 1945, she married Bernard J. Kinninger at St. Louis Church Catholic Church in North Star. Bernard died Oct. 10, 2001. Rose Mary is survived by eight children, Gary L. and Barbara (Smith) Kinninger, of Sidney, Thomas B.

what she was thinking. She was her grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s number one fan and supporter in all of their activities. Rosie was viewed as a grandmother to not only her own grandkids, but to many nonfamily members as well. No one ever left Rosie’s house hungry, whether it was her famous pies, lime pickles, or an impromptu lunch, which the grandkids took advantage of often. She also made sure the boys in the field didn’t go hungry. The kitchen was always a gathering place at the farm and holds many fond memories for everyone. Rosie took immense pride in her garden and loved the holidays with her family. Rosie enjoyed shopping and always looked her best from head to toe. Bernie and Rosie were regulars at the Walkup Country Club. They spent many Saturdays dancing the night away with the gang. She was a loving sister and enjoyed taking the day to go on adventures with her siblings. We lost an amazing, strong-willed woman whose thoughtfulness and sincerity will be forever in our hearts. A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Angels Catholic Church with the Rev. Daniel Hess. Burial will be at Graceland Cemetery. Friends may call at Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home on Monday from 3 to 8 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, Wilson Hospice or the Alzheimer’s Association.

Violence mars Syria’s shaky truce


BY ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

Today is Saturday, Oct. 27, the 301st day of 2012. There are 65 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 27, 1787, the first of the Federalist Papers, a series of essays calling for ratification of the United States Constitution, was published under the pseudonym “Publius” (the essays were a collaborative effort by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay). On this date: ■ In 1795, the United States and Spain signed the Treaty of San Lorenzo (also known as Pinckney’s Treaty), which provided for free navigation of the Mississippi River. ■ In 1858, the 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, was born in New York City. ■ In 1880, Theodore Roosevelt married his first wife, Alice Lee. ■ In 1886 (New Style date), the musical fantasy “A Night on Bald Mountain,” written by Modest Mussorgsky and revised after his death by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, was performed in St. Petersburg, Russia. ■ In 1904, the first rapid transit subway, the IRT, was inaugurated in New York City. ■ In 1922, the first annual celebration of Navy Day took place. ■ In 1938, Du Pont announced a name for its new synthetic yarn: “nylon.” ■ In 1947, “You Bet Your Life,” starring Groucho Marx, premiered on ABC Radio. (It later became a television show on NBC.) ■ In 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, a U2 reconnaissance aircraft was shot down while flying over Cuba, killing the pilot, U.S. Air Force Maj. Rudolf Anderson Jr. ■ In 1971, the Democratic Republic of Congo was renamed the Republic of Zaire (but it went back to its previous name in 1997). ■ In 1978, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin were named winners of the Nobel Peace Prize for their progress toward achieving a Middle East accord. ■ In 1992, Petty Officer Allen Schindler, a gay U.S. Navy sailor, was beaten to death near Sasebo Naval Base in southwestern Japan by shipmate Terry Helvey, who pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

BEIRUT (AP) — Two deadly car bombs and sporadic fighting marred a shaky holiday truce Friday in Syria, although thousands of protesters used the brief respite in the civil war to pour into the streets and demand President Bashar Assad’s ouster. Chants of “Syria wants freedom!” rang out in the streets in the largest demonstrations in months, suggesting that a 19month-old crackdown and sustained violence has not broken the spirit of those trying to rid the country of Assad’s rule. But even if a cease-fire holds for the intended four-day Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, it’s unlikely to be a springboard for ending the conflict that has already claimed more than 35,000 lives. Syria mediator Lakhdar Brahimi, the U.N.-Arab League envoy, has not charted a way forward or said how he would bridge the deep divide between Assad and his opponents. The Syrian president won’t resign and the opposition says it won’t


Shark falls from sky SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (AP) — Nobody yelled “Fore!” at a Southern California golf course when a 2-foot-long shark dropped out of the sky and flopped around on the 12th tee. The 2-pound leopard shark was apparently plucked from the ocean by a bird then dropped on San Juan Hills Golf Club, Melissa McCormack, director of club operations, said Thursday. No one was teeing up when the shark fell Monday afternoon, although some golfers had just left the area, she said. A course marshal, who makes sure players maintain an appropriate pace, saw something moving around on the tee and went to investigate. He found the shark bleeding with puncture wounds, where it seems the bird had held it in its grasp. The shark was rescued and returned to the sea.

negotiate a transition deal until he does. Brahimi’s plan marks the first attempt by the international community in six months to scale back the violence that has displaced hundreds of thousands of people and devastated entire neighborhoods. A more comprehensive U.N. cease-fire plan in April quickly collapsed. Brahimi did not set clear terms for the truce, perhaps to reduce the possibility of failure. He only said it should be in effect during the four-day holiday, but made no arrangements for monitoring compliance. A few hours after the truce took effect, a car bomb in a residential area of Damascus, near a housing complex for police, killed 10 people and wounded more than 30, Syrian state media said. Amateur video posted online showed debris scattered across a large area. Flames shot out of the car’s gutted wreckage, as frantic residents tried to evacuate casualties. One rescuer carried a man with blood streaming down his

face. Another rigged car went off near an army checkpoint in the southern city of Deraa, killing three soldiers, said the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which compiles reports from a network of activists. Still, there appeared to be a drop in fighting and casualties Friday. In recent weeks, the daily death toll usually topped 150. From dawn to dusk Friday, 62 people were killed, including 24 regime soldiers, according to the Observatory. Khaled al-Shami, an activist in Damascus, said he expected the lull to end quickly. “The regime cannot afford to give a truce a chance,” he said. “The leadership worries it will breathe new life into the revolution and they will not let that happen.” However, rebel commanders have also dismissed the truce as irrelevant, while a radical Islamic group fighting on the rebel side, Jabhat al-Nusra, has rejected the cease-fire outright. Gunmen from the group also took part in fighting Friday near a military camp close

STORM cials advised residents of flood-prone areas to stay with family or be ready to leave. Airlines said to expect cancellations and waived change fees for passengers who want to reschedule. “Be forewarned,” said Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. “Assume that you will be in the midst of flooding conditions, the likes of which you may not have seen at any of the major storms that have occurred over the last 30 years.” Many storm-seasoned residents had not begun to panic. Along North Carolina’s fragile Outer Banks, no evacuations had been ordered and ferries hadn’t yet been closed. Plenty of stores remained open and houses still featured Halloween decorations outside, as rain started to roll in. “I’ll never evacuate again,” said Lori Hilby, manager of a

They’re derided as uninformed nincompoops who don’t merit the power they wield. As David Letterman put it: “You’re idiots! Make up your mind!” Do these wafflers, ruminators and procrastinators deserve coddling — or scorn? Are they just misunderstood? A look at who they are and what they’re waiting for:

They’re not blank slates Two-thirds of persuadable voters have an established party preference, the AP-GfK poll shows. They’re roughly divided between those who call themselves Democrats or lean that way and those who are Republicans or lean to that side. So why not just plan to vote with their party? “They are really a little bit torn,” said Lynn Vavreck, an associate professor of political science at the University of California, Los Angeles. “They may have some issue positions that are counter to their party, or they’re not sure how they stand on some things.” Nancy Hoang, a University of Minnesota freshman studying mathematics, considers herself a fiscal conservative and leans Republican. Yet she vacillated because she agrees with the Democrats’ support for gay marriage and opposition to voter ID laws. “I could have gone either way,” said Hoang, 18. Not until after the final debate Monday did she decide: Her first-ever

to a key supply road to Aleppo, Syria’s largest city. In Aleppo, where rebels and regime forces are locked in a stalemate, fighting raged near the military airport, killing at least four people. Elsewhere, at least 22 people were killed by regime shelling and sniper fire in the Damascus suburbs of Harasta and Douma, and in the northern Idlib province, the Observatory said. In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the U.S. has seen violations on both sides but pointed out reports of attacks from helicopters and tanks. “These are weapons, obviously, that the opposition doesn’t have,” she said. Friday’s street protests in a number of locations across Syria began after worshippers emerged from mosques after holiday prayers. Amateur videos posted online Friday showed large groups of protesters waving rebel flags, cheering, clapping or holding each other by the shoulders in traditional Arab group dances.

presidential vote will go to they have a “great deal” or Romney. “quite a bit” of interest in folStill, a good chunk are lowing the campaign, almost as high as among other likely votindependents ers. About 30 percent of persuadable voters say they’re political independents. That’s three times the presence of independents — just 8 percent — among likely voters who have decided who they’ll vote for, according to the AP-GfK poll. In an increasingly polarized America, they stand out. Robert Dohrenburg, a small business owner in McAllen, Texas, voted for Republicans Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, but not for Bush’s son, George W. He backed Obama in 2008, then had second thoughts this year. Dohrenburg, 56, watched all three presidential debates before making up his mind to stick with Obama, in part because Romney “says one thing today and another thing tomorrow.” He wishes Ron Paul had won the Republican nomination.

Are they even paying attention? Professors have a euphemism: low-information voters. The bulk of registered voters who are still undecided fall into that group, researchers say. “They’re basically not that interested in politics,” Vavreck said. “They pay less attention to news in general.” Her image of the typical undecided American, based on her research: “the single mom with a couple of kids who just doesn’t have time to be attuned to politics but feels like it’s her civic duty to vote, and may or may not show up at the polls.” Yet the still-deciding who are committed to voting don’t see themselves as out of touch. In the AP-GfK poll, 85 percent of the persuadables said

Farther north, residents were making more cautious preparations. Patrick and Heather Peters pulled into their driveway in Bloomsburg, Pa., with a kerosene heater, 12 gallons of water, paper plates, batteries, flashlights and the last lantern on Walmart’s shelf. They’ve also rented a UHaul in case the forecast gets worse over the weekend. “I’m not screwing around this time,” said Heather Peters, whose town was devastated last year by flooding following Hurricane Irene. Across the street, Douglas Jumper, whose first floor took on nearly 5 feet of water during Irene, was tying down his patio furniture on Friday and moving items in his wood shop to higher ground. “I’m tired. I am tired,” Jumper, who turns 58 on Saturday, said through tears. “We don’t need this again.”

So what do they think?

They’re of two minds. Persuadable voters are more likely to trust Romney to do a better job handling the economy and the federal budget deficit, the AP-GfK poll shows. And they’re about as comfortable with Romney as they are with Obama on foreign policy. They are more likely to say Obama has a clear vision for the future, however. They tend to say he understands the problems of people like them better than Romney does. They also give Obama a broad advantage on making the right decision on women’s issues. They’re worried about the future. Only 3 in 10 persuadable voters think the economy will improve in the coming year, compared with 6 in 10 decided voters. “I’m not sure that either candidate is going to be able to correct the issues,” said Cox, 43, who watched California’s Central Valley suffer through recession and drought. “I’d like to get the jobs back in the United States. I’d like to quit owing China everything. Put the farmers back to work.”

What’s taking them so long? Some see virtue in refusing to rush. Victoria Cook, a 27-year-old psychology student at Arapahoe Community College near Denver, leans toward Obama. But she stood in line to see Romney and Ryan at a rally with rocker Kid Rock this week. “I don’t want it to get to the point where you just write off

the other guys right away,” Cook said as she waited. “So I’ll listen to what they have to say.” Professor Kirk said many undecided voters are so annoyed by months of TV commercials and punditry and news coverage that they just tune it all out until Election Day nears. “They want to pay attention at the time they’re ready to make a choice,” she said.

Will they decided this election? It’s possible. “That small group of people can make a difference if the vast majority of them swing in one direction,” said Rutgers University political science Professor Richard Lau, who studies how voters decide. But that would be unusual. Late deciders tend to be divided, not vote as a block — unless they are swept up in a bigger wave, Lau said. In 1980, for example, October polls showed President Jimmy Carter in a tight race with Ronald Reagan. “It was very close up until the last few days and somehow everybody just decided, ‘Enough. We’re going to change courses here,’” Lau said. “Usually what happens is that the independent voters change in the direction that somehow the nature of the times is already going.” Still, an advantage among procrastinators could swing the race in a hotly contested state. In the last two presidential elections, about 1 in 10 voters surveyed as they left polling places said they’d settled on their candidate within the previous week. About 5 percent decided on Election Day. No word on how many made up their minds while standing in the voting booth.

Goodyear income down AKRON (AP) — Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. said Friday that its third-quarter net income fell by nearly one-third as lower tire sales in Europe offset cost savings and higher North American profits. The company’s results fell short of Wall Street expectations, and it said in a statement that more cost cuts are coming because of economic uncertainty. No details were given. The tire maker’s results highlight a problem that is plaguing many global companies in autorelated businesses. Strong profits in North America are being erased

by falling earnings in Europe as the region’s economy continues to unravel on concerns about government debt. Shares in the Akron, Ohio, company fell 71 cents, or 5.8 percent, to $11.59 in premarket trading. Goodyear reported net income of $110 million, or 41 cents per share, for the three months ended Sept. 30. That’s down from $161 million, or 60 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding one-time items such as restructuring costs and asset writeoffs, the company made 53 cents per share. Analysts polled by FactSet expected 59 cents per share.

Dear Heloise: My nails tend to peel and crack, but I don’t want to get artificial nails, which might Hints make my nail from b e d s Heloise more brittle Heloise Cruse t h a n they already are. I’d like healthy nails. What can I do? — Cait E. in Philadelphia This is a classic Heloise Hint that has left many with beautiful, strong nails. Treat them with white (otherwise known as colorless or decolorized) iodine. Before running out to a big chain drugstore, call around, especially to local or independent pharmacies, and ask the pharmacist if the store has iodine available. It may be kept behind the counter in some states, or your pharmacist may be able to order it for you if you ask. If all else fails, check online using a search engine and typing in the words “white iodine.” To treat damaged nails, use a cotton swab or a nail-polish brush (cleaned thoroughly with nail-polish remover) to spread colorless iodine on JUST the tips of your nails. After doing this daily for one week, begin to use the iodine only once a week. Continue until you see that your are getting nails stronger. While using white iodine, DO NOT use hydrogen peroxide or any products that contain hydrogen peroxide, or you will end up with yellow or orange fingertips. Remember, when cleaning up around the house, use rubber gloves to protect your hands and nails. — Heloise

NICK BENSHOFF addresses his fellow students during Northwood Elementary School’s election convention.

Students hold election convention With the presidential election quickly approaching in November, fifth-grade students at Northwood Elementary School are learning firsthand what it’s like to participate in the voting process. Students recently took part in an election convention simulation held in the school’s gymnasium. Seven students ran for president from the Fair and Square Party and 12 ran from the Do Right Party. The presidential candidates were fifthgrade students and they made

their case to classmates during their political party’s political convention. Each presidential candidate addressed their classmates before the student body of fifth-graders who voted and submitted their secret ballot to fifthgrade teachers Chris Eilerman, Patty McKay, Kelly Barker, Julie Henman and Sandy Piatt. “Students have been learning about the presidential election process in class recently,” said Eilerman. “They were thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in an election process and


experience what it is like to be a candidate for office.” Following the election conventions, the winners chose a running mate and now will actively participate in their campaign for final election of the president/vice president on Tuesday. The public, made up of Northwood’s fourth- and fifthgrade registered voters, will participate in the popular vote and then the president and vice president will be decided by the tabulation of the awarding of the classroom electoral votes.

Sidney shuts out Greenville Sidney dominated Greenville to the tune of 38-0 to put an exclamation point on the 2012 football season. With the win, the Jackets finish 4-6 on the campaign and 1-4 in the GWOC North. The Jackets jumped on Greenville right from the start. Taking the opening kickoff, Sidney went 61 yards on seven plays, all of which were running plays. Kaleb Martin punched it in from seven yards out and Andre Spillers kicked the extra point to make it 7-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to give a lot of credit to Assistant Coach Joe Huwer,â&#x20AC;? said coach Adam Doenges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He came up with a few wrinkles on offense that Greenville hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen from us. We executed well, and it was nice to get off to a great start.â&#x20AC;? Sidney caught a break on defense as Noah Straman jumped on a loose ball to give Sidney the ball back at midfield. On third down and 15, Jordan Fox found Troy Rosengarten for 20 yards and a huge first down. Three plays later, Fox ran it into the endzone from 4 yards out. The extra point put the Jackets up 14-0. Sidney took advantage of two mistakes by Greenville late in the first half. A bad snap on a punt was recovered by Sidney deep in Greenville territory. The Jackets stalled on offense, but Spillers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; playing with a torn ACL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; kicked a 27 yard record tying field goal to put Sidney up 17-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Andre was cleared to just kick this week,â&#x20AC;? said Doenges.

possession. Fox took advantage of the turnover as he found Jalen Herd for a 36 yard touchdown pass and catch. The extra point put Sidney ahead 24-0 at halftime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a big part of that swing at the end of the half was the fact that we were still practicing hard and playing hard at the end of the season,â&#x20AC;? said Doenges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That goes back to our senior leadership. This class gave us six great years of football. They went through a lot of obstacles to end their careers at Sidney on a great note.â&#x20AC;? After a pair of empty possessions to start the second half, Zach Scott picked off a Greenville pass to give Sidney the ball at the Greenville 37 yard line. Three plays later, Kyle Dembski broke several tackles to find the endzone on a 28 yard run. Martin broke loose late in the third quarter to give Sidney a 38-0 lead, which would eventually be the final score. Doenges was happy with an overall successful season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We told the kids that it was neat to be playing for something in week 10, in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little Brown Jug.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Next year and in the future, we want to be playing for something even more.â&#x20AC;?

Redskins goes 8-2 on season with 34-0 win FORT LORAMIE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fort Loramie had little trouble in its regular-season finale here Friday as the Redskins, behind a big night from Delaunte Thornton, rolled to a 34-0 win over Upper Scioto Valley in Northwest Central Conference play. Loramie improves to 8-2 on the season and 5-1 in the NWCC while the Rams finish 1-9 and 1-4. After David Ahrns opened

the scoring with a 20-yard fumble return in the first quarter, Thornton made it 130 with an eight-yard run. Thornton then extended the lead to 27-0 at the half with two more touchdown runs of 40 and 24 yards, respectively, before Seth Guillozet connected on a three-yard pass to Jason Streib for a third-quarter touchdown to round out the scoring.

Austin Dennison to Cody Schmitt with 2:11 remaining in the opening period. The Panthers converted the two-point conversion to take an 8-7 lead after one quarter. On Anna's next possession, Williams got the ball on the first five plays, and on nine plays in the drive. But on first and goal from the 10, he fumbled the ball through the endzone to stop the drive in its tracks. Parkway fumbled the ball back, however, and this time the Rockets capitalized. They went 50 yards in just six plays, with quarterback Josh Robinson shaking free on a 16-yard touchdown run to put the Rockets up 14-8 with 4:41 left in the half. Parkway again fumbled on its next possession, and Anna added another score with just 45.6 seconds remaining in the half. Again, it was Robinson going in for the score, this time from a yard out. The kick failed but the Rockets led 20-8 at the intermission, and with a

“But I think it’s obvious when your program gets highlighted the way it is highlighted, the players, coaches and fans do take some pride in that fact. With that said, they want to continue to play well and continue to be recognized. The challenge will be there with Miami.” It’s been one of the MAC’s edgiest rivalries for decades. Miami has the overall lead, 51-35-2, and more historical prominence as the “Cradle of Coaches.” Ohio has taken control of the rivalry lately, winning the last six games, including three in a row in Oxford. Not since 2003, when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger led the RedHawks deep into the national rankings, has one of these rivalry games had so much at stake for either of them. This time, it’s the RedHawks looking to get notice for knocking off a ranked rival. Ohio’s success has brought more attention not only to the rivalry but to the conference as well. “I think that’s tremendous for our conference,” Miami coach Don Treadwell said. “What they’re getting now is deserving, and it helps all of us.”

“He’s playing great after coming back from a real tough injury,” Meyer said. “I know what kind of player he is and I think he’s an All-Big Ten linebacker.” Penn State coach Bill O’Brien said Mauti is just one of several dependable players on his defense. “We’ve got a few guys there that are leaders on that defense. Whether it’s Michael Mauti, (OLB) Gerald Hodges, (DT) Jordan Hill, (CB) Stephon Morris,” he said. “The one thing that they all have in common is they play very hard. They love playing football for Penn State. They have a passion for the game, they practice hard, they prepare hard, they’re well-coached. Those guys have been really great leaders for us all year.”

Giants have 2-0 lead in World Series SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Long ball one night, a Giant dose of small ball the next. Two wins in two games and suddenly San Francisco doesn’t need to dig itself out of a postseason hole for a change. Madison Bumgarner shut down the Detroit Tigers for seven innings, then the Giants took advantage of a bunt that stayed fair to eke out the go-ahead run in a 20 win Thursday night for a 2-0 edge in the World Series. Gregor Blanco’s single trickled to a stop inches fair on the infield dirt, setting up Brandon Crawford’s run-scoring double-play grounder in the seventh. Hunter Pence added a sacrifice fly in the eighth, and that was plenty for these masters of the October comeback. “It definitely feels a whole lot better than having our backs against the wall,” Bumgarner said. “But you can’t relax. We’ve got to

keep pushing.” Game 3 will be Saturday night in Detroit and for once, the Giants aren’t playing from behind. They overcame a 2-0 deficit to beat Cincinnati in the bestof-five division series and escaped a 3-1 hole against St. Louis in the NLCS. A day after Pablo Sandoval homered three times, the favored Tigers wondered what other way they could lose. Prince Fielder was thrown out at the plate by a hair and moments

later pitcher Doug Fister was struck squarely in the head by Blanco’s line drive, a ball hit so hard that it caromed into shallow center field. “They asked me the typical concussion questions,” Fister said. “I’m not concerned. I have a minor bump. According to my dad, my whole life his saying has always been if I got hit in the head I’d be OK. That’s how I take it.” The 6-foot-8 Fister managed to stay on the mound, and even excelled. Bumgarner more

than matched him, however, allowing just two hits before the San Francisco bullpen closed it out before another pulsating crowd. Santiago Casilla pitched a perfect eighth Sergio Romo and worked the ninth for a save in the combined two-hitter, leaving Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera and his team in a huge hole heading back to Comerica Park. Anibal Sanchez will start for the Tigers against Ryan Vogelsong in Detroit.

Caring For Seniors In Shelby County For 90 Years

Commissioner to retire in 2014 NEW YORK (AP) — David Stern took the NBA around the globe in nearly three decades as commissioner, turning what was a second-rate league into a projected $5billion-a-year industry. Now, confident a worthy successor is in place with a labor deal that will ensure the game’s continued growth, Stern is ready to stay home. Stern will retire as commissioner Feb. 1, 2014, 30 years to the day after taking charge of the league, ending one of the most successful and impactful careers in sports history. He will be replaced by Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver. “I don’t know what else to say other than to recite what I told the owners yesterday in executive session,” Stern said Thursday during a press conference after the board of governors meetings. “I told them that it’s been a great run, it will continue for another 15 months, that the league is in, I think, terrific condition.” Stern is the one who got it there, turning a league with little-to-no TV presence — the NBA Finals were on tape delay in the early 1980s — into one that’s televised live in 215 countries and is pro sports’ leader in digital and social media. He has been perhaps the model sports commissioner. Name an important policy in the NBA — drug testing, salary cap, even a dress code — and Stern had a hand in it. A lawyer by trade, he was a fearless negotiator against players and referees, but also their biggest defender any time he felt they were unfairly criticized.

“For all the things you’ve done for the NBA and for sports generally, I think there’s no doubt that you’ll be remembered as the best of alltime as commissioners go and you’ve set the standard, I think not even just for sports league commissioners, but for CEOs in any industry,” Silver told Stern sitting to his left on a podium. Stern told owners of his plans during their two days of meetings, and the board unanimously decided Silver would be his successor. Owners will begin negotiations with the 50-year-old Silver in hopes of having a contract completed by their next meeting in April. Stern, who turned 70 last month, became commissioner on Feb. 1, 1984. He has been the NBA’s longest-serving commissioner, establishing the league’s brand around the world, presiding over team expansion and overseeing the establishment of the WNBA and the Development NBA League. “There is no debate that David Stern has earned his spot in the pantheon of sports commissioners. Deservedly, his name and reputation will always be synonymous with the phenomenal growth and success of the NBA over the last three decades,” union executive director Billy Hunter said in a statement. “His absence will surely be felt by anyone connected to the NBA and the sport of basketball, although clearly the league will be left in very capable hands with the appointment of Adam Silver as the next commissioner.”

Rabbit, pheasant, FISHING REPORT quail hunting seasons The Weekly Fish Ohio Nettle Lake has no horseFishing Report for Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power restrictions; howbegin Friday inland lakes and rivers ever, there is a No Wake COLUMBUS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ohio hunters should begin preparing for the hunting seasons of some of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular game species with ring-necked pheasant, cottontail rabbit and bobwhite quail. The hunting seasons for upland game begin Friday, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resourcesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cottontail rabbit population has been very good recently. However, Nathan Stricker, project leader with ODNRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olentangy Wildlife Research Station, said rabbit populations tend to go through an up-and-down cycle every seven to 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rabbit numbers are lower this year, but this type of decline is expected with this cycle,â&#x20AC;? said Stricker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of these cyclical changes, cottontail rabbit populations are excellent throughout Ohio and provide plenty of opportunities for a family hunting outing.â&#x20AC;? Quail and pheasant populations may be lower than previous years, and Stricker said quail and pheasant are heavily dependent upon quality habitats on private lands provided by the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Williams and Defiance counties in northwest Ohio have strong pheasant populations because of the habitat contributions by local landowners. Upland game populations are responding positively to habitat programs in other areas around the state, especially in counties with significant enrollment in the Scioto Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program and Quail Buffer practices in CRP known as CP33. Cottontail rabbit hunting continues through Feb. 28. Ring-necked pheasant hunting is open through Jan. 6. Both seasons are closed during the statewide 2012 deer-gun hunting season, Nov. 26Dec. 2. Rabbits, pheasants and quail may be hunted from sunrise to sunset. The daily bag limit for all three species remains unchanged from last year at four rabbits, two pheasants (roosters/males only) and four quail. Hunters are reminded that snowshoe hares are not legal game in Ohio and should not be hunted. Snowshoe hares were recently reintroduced to northeastern Ohio after nearly a century of absence. They are brown early in the season, which makes them resemble cottontail rabbits. To avoid confusion between cottontail rabbits and snowshoe hares, portions of Geauga and Ashtabula counties will be closed to all rabbit hunting from Friday through Dec. 2. At that time, hunters will be able to distinguish between the two rabbits since most snowshoe hares will have turned white by early December. Pheasants are released on selecting hunting areas throughout the state by the ODNR Division of Wildlife prior to opening day of the pheasant season, the second Saturday of the season, Nov. 10 and Thanksgiving Day. Bobwhite quail hunting is open in 16 counties in southern Ohio: Adams, Athens, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Highland, Jackson, Meigs, Montgomery, Pike, Preble, Ross, Scioto, Vinton and Warren. The season continues through Nov. 25. Additional hunting information is contained in the 2012-13 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations, which are available where hunting licenses are sold, online at or by calling (800) WILDLIFE.

Funding received for trails COLUMBUS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has announced that 14 recreational trails in Ohio have been selected to share a total of $1,689,759 in federal funds through the Recreational Trails Program (RTP). ODNR received 66 RTP grant applications, and the agency awarded funding to 14 projects. More than 170 local trail

projects across the state have received more than $21 million in federal funds through ODNR since RTP began in 1993. A few examples of criteria for projects receiving funding included: justification of trail need, trail linkages and public participation. ODNR administers federal grants, including the RTP, which provides funding for non-motorized and motorized trails.

has been released. CENTRAL OHIO Hoover Reservoir (Delaware and Franklin counties) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Crappie are active so anglers should try fishing minnows or jigs suspended under bobbers in shallow areas around woody structure. Catfish are still being caught in the north end; shrimp, night crawlers or prepared baits should work well. Saugeye are starting to get active; troll crankbaits and worm harnesses along points and across flats leading to deeper water. Keep the baits very close to the bottom. Early morning and evening bites produce best results. Indian Lake (Logan County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Saugeye are being caught along south bank and around the Moundwood and Dream bridge areas. Crankbaits and worm harnesses fished near the bottom usually produce good results. Electrofishing surveys indicate there is a large population of saugeyes. Anglers are catching largemouth bass in the canals around cover. Anglers should try spinner baits, tubes, and crankbaits. Crappies are active around woody structure and any standing vegetation; use minnows and jigs for best results. NORTHWEST OHIO Findlay Reservoir No. 2 (Hancock County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Findlay Reservoir No. 2 is located southwest of Findlay on Township Road 207. It is 629-acres in size with 4.2 miles of shoreline. There is a full boat ramp at the southern shore of the reservoir. Yellow perch and white bass should also be biting this month. White bass can be found feeding near the surface in schools throughout the reservoir. During the fall, yellow perch can be caught around structure. The best baits include minnows and red worms fished near the bottom with spreaders or crappie rigs. Anglers should still be able to hook into some walleye in the mornings and evenings near the shoreline. There is a 9.9 horsepower limit on the reservoir. Nettle Lake (Williams County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; This 103-acre natural glacial lake is located on County Road 4.75, off of Ohio 49. Largemouth bass should be biting this time of year. Evenings have been the best. Anglers should focus their efforts along the edges. Try using top-water lures and crème worms. In October large crappies can usually be found near the lily pads in the northwest corner. There is a boat ramp off of County Road 4.75 at the southwest corner of the lake.

Rule (power boaters must operate at idle speed) between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. From 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., there are no speed restrictions for power boaters. Killdeer Plains Pond No. 33 (Wyandot County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; This pond is located northeast of the village of Marseilles, one mile east of Ohio 67 on former County Road 75. Largemouth bass are usually heavily feeding this month. Anglers usually have the best success early in the morning and at sunset along the south dike and along the fishing piers. Anglers generally have the best success using jigs and pigs fished along the weed line and in open water pockets. The pond has a boat ramp with a floating dock. Boats are limited to 10 horsepower motors. Shore fishing is available from the dike and piers. Wading along the north shore is also popular. NORTHEAST OHIO Wingfoot Lake (Portage County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; This 444-acre lake is found three miles east of Akron, eight miles south of Kent, and onehalf mile south of U.S. 224. It offers great bass, bluegill, and cat fishing and anglers can even commonly catch perch, walleye, and crappie as well. While shoreline fishing access is very limited, boat anglers will see very good results. View a map of this lake at or call 1-800-WILDLIFE for a copy. Boat anglers should note that only outboard motors of 10 h.p. or less are permitted on the lake. Also, all catfish anglers should note the daily bag limit of six (6) channel catfish under 28 inches. Clear Fork branch, Mohican River (Ashland County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thanks to Division of Wildlife stocking efforts beginning in the early 90's, brown trout can be caught in this pristine waterway, specifically near the covered bridge in Mohican State Park in the southern portion of the county. A large section of public access can be found downstream of Pleasant Hill dam as well as a small portion between Bellville and Butler on Gatton Rocks Road. Otherwise, anglers must obtained permission from private landowners before fishing unless floating in a canoe, kayak, or other watercraft. Visit to view a fishing access map and visit and click on Watercraft to see launch sites. Brown trout are taken using wet or dry flies from areas such as undercut banks and around fallen trees and boulders, which occur throughout the stream.

Traditional methods include using worms or a minnow under a bobber fished through the runs, holes, and eddies. Bottom fishing with worms can also be productive. Anglers have also been successful using small spinners in natural colors or white, black, and silver, and casting those spinners into the holes, eddies, and riffle areas. SOUTHEAST OHIO Slope Creek Reservoir (Belmont County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Also known as Barnesville Reservoir No. 3, this lake is located just five miles south of Barnesville off McGinnis Road and is home to many popular sport fish. The cooler temperatures of fall will start moving largemouth bass back into shallower water. Try using spinner baits, rubber worms, crankbaits, and jig-n-pig combinations fished near structure such as fallen trees or weed bed edges. A slot length limit is imposed on this lake, so only bass smaller than 12 inches and larger than 15 inches may be kept. Although not as abundant, bluegill can be found throughout the lake. A simple wax worm or redworm fished below a bobber should be sufficient. A few crappie may also be found but the population is low in numbers. Electric motors only. Wolf Run Lake (Noble County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fall is the best time to start looking for saugeye, and this lake doesn't receive heavy pressure for this popular fish. Try fishing lead head jigs tipped with a twister, stick baits, or crankbaits in riprap areas along the bank as well as main lake points. Some saugeye anglers prefer live baits such as minnows, so don't limit yourself to one type of bait. Good conditions for saugeye will continue throughout the winter and into next spring. Channel catfish can still be caught throughout the fall on night crawlers, chicken livers, or prepared catfish baits fished on the bottom, and don't forget that night fishing can provide some excellent opportunities. Belleville Locks and Dam - Sauger and walleye fishing is starting to pick up in the tailwater section as river temperatures cool. Try twister tails (white or chartreuse) or swimbaits near the dam and along the walkway. Night and early morning are the best times right now, although fish are still being caught throughout the day. Walleye over 22-inches are being caught, though most walleye and sauger will be in the 12 to 16-inch range. Hybrid striped bass fishing continues to remain good, with many three to four pound fish being caught. Spoons, crankbaits and livebait seem to work best.

Page 5B

SOUTHWEST OHIO Adams Lake (Adams County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bluegill are being taken by anglers using any of the following worms: red, earth, wax, or meal. Fish from a boat, along the pier, or along the shoreline. Keep the bait about two to three feet deep under a bobber. C. J. Brown Reservoir (Clark County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Crappie are biting on jigs with plastic bodies and live minnows. Fishing is good from a boat or the shoreline. Fish the bait slowly along the bottom, still fish, or use a slip bobber. Fishing the bait between three to more than 10 feet deep will produce good results. Paint Creek (Highland County) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Crappies are being caught by anglers using minnows or jigs as bait. Fish the bait in three to 12 feet of water. Fish the bait around any type of woody structure such as downed trees and overhanging brush and around the campgrounds. A few saugeye are being caught by casting jigs or trolling small crankbaits between the beach and the island and along the hazard area. Bluegills are being caught by anglers using wax worms under bobbers as bait. Fish the bait two to four feet deep. Good fishing spots are back in the coves, near stumps, and around fallen timber. OHIO RIVER Eastern Ohio River â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Hybrid striped bass and white bass fishing remains consistent in the tailwaters. Popular baits include twister tails and casting spoons. The sauger bite should start picking up as the water temperature continues to drop. Try using jigs tipped with twister tails or minnows in the tailwaters, creek mouths and around the islands. Catfish are still active and can be caught on skipjack, night crawlers, or chicken livers. Western Ohio River â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 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 are hitting Rapalas and rattletraps. Lake Erie Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15 inches. The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler from September 1 through May 15. The minimum size limit for trout and salmon is 12 inches. The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit of 5 fish and a 14-inch minimum size limit.

of vitamin B-6, too little vitamin B-1, infections, excessive alcohol and a condition called amyloidosis are some of the conditions responsible for neuropathy. Many times, however, even a highly trained specialist — a neurologist — cannot come up with why the neuropathy has happened. For neuropathies where pain is the main problem, a large number of drugs are tried. Amitriptyline is one. Its main use is to treat depression, but it was found to alleviate the pain of neuropathy for many patients. Seizurecontrol medicines are another example of

drugs used to suppress neuropathic pain when their main job is control of seizures. Topamax and Lyrica are two such drugs. Lidocaine is a numbing agent. It also comes in patches that can be applied directly to the skin over the painful area to suppress the pain. I can’t tell you if your sister’s pain will get better. I can make a suggestion that will ease her pain through learning the latest developments in the field of neuropathy. That is to contact the Neuropathy Association for a wealth of information and a helping hand. The association’s website is

DEAR TORN: Yes, it’s too early to be fighting this way. It was also way too early to start living together. Couples counseling may help you and Carl resolve your issues — but only if he is willing to work on them as you are. If that isn’t the case, you should move on QUICKLY, before your son forms an even stronger attachment. At this point, it can be done without the expense of a lawyer. DEAR ABBY: My

mom pays me $3 a week to do chores around the house. I take out the garbage, do the dishes, vacuum and set the table every night. I’m frustrated that I’m being paid such a small amount for doing a ton of work. I told her I’m on “strike” and I’m tired of being her slave. Whenever I mention getting a raise, she claims she’ll talk to my dad about it — but she never does! How do I get paid more? — SINCERELY, LAUREN DEAR LAUREN: If your father is the source of the money, then don’t depend on your mother to intercede for you. Talk to him yourself. And when you do, be prepared to tell him what a good job you have been doing — and that you would be willing to take on a few more responsibilities for a little more compensation. Consider it your first lesson in the art of negotiation.

50 years Oct. 27, 1962 Sandblasting operations at the Shelby County courthouse went ahead “full blast” today despite a wind that hampered the workman and caused temporary shutdowns in two offices. A sign on the door of the Shelby County Motor Club in the basement served notice that the office would be closed until Wednesday morning. The blasting crew was at work on the south side of the building and dust fil-

Monday afternoon, the probate court room closed early for the same reason. ————— A two-story frame house formerly located on the northeast corner of the interchange of state route 119 and state route 75 east to Anna moved out of the path of new construction project Monday.

it. I thought this game was banned in schools, even pre-schools, because it was started from something evil. Is this true? If it is, I’ll contact the school and have it banned. —Phyllis, Cleveland, Ohio PHYLLIS: RingAround-the-Rosy was started in Great Britain after a terrible bubonic plague swept through England in the mid1600s. The “rosy” referred to is the rosy rash of those who had the disease; the “pocket full of posies” re-

ferred to herbs and spices carried to sweeten the air, and “we all fall down,” meant falling down dead. It’s an unusual beginning for a child’s game, but the game does not represent anything evil and should not be banned. The children who play it should enjoy it. I suppose it won’t be long before someone challenges the poem about Humpty Dumpty who, as you know, fell and couldn’t be put together again.

Civil War program planned Board learns central Ohio, including Auglaize County, the 71st Ohio Volunteer Infantryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first experience in battle was at Shiloh, Tenn., where its soldiers were falsely accused of running from the enemy. Performing tedious garrison duty in middle Tennessee for more than two years, the regiment endured bad weather, disease, Confederate guerrillas, a hostile populace, and occasionally the indifference of its own officers. Its involvement at Atlanta and Franklin and key role at the Battle of Nashville redeemed the regimentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation and their service became a lifelong

source of pride for the veterans of the 71st OVI. Presenter for the evening is Martin Stewart, a native of Miami County and a veteran of the U.S. Navy. Since leaving the military, he has worked as a mechanical engineer in Dayton. A lifelong interest in history led him to self-publish several family genealogies and his first book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Civil War Diary of Samuel Blakely Briggs.â&#x20AC;? Stewart has recently published a new book about the 71st OVI. He and his wife, Rhonda, live in Miami County. Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation at 7:30 p.m. will fol-

low the Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annual Meeting at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

NEW BREMEN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New Bremen Board of Education members learned this month projected construction costs for a new K-8 building have increased by $1.5 million since voters rejected a March bond issue. Superintendent Howard Overman told the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first October meeting the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission now estimates taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cost of the proposed 80,540-square-foot facility at nearly $14.2 million. The previous estimate was $13 million. Total cots of the project are now estimated at $21.43 million. The School Facilities Commission would contribute $7.23 million toward the project, an increase from the previous $6.84 million. Local taxpayers in March soundly defeated a 7.55-mill bond issue to build a new school. A survey made after the election indicated many residents doubted the school boardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; $12.5 million estimated costs to remodel the existing elementary/ middle school. Board members have since created a school district facilities committee to weigh the cost of new construction versus renovation. The board also reviewed the five-year financial forecast, which projects revenues of $8.08 million and expenditures of $8.77 million in fiscal year 2013, with carry-over funds covering the anticipated shortfall of $680,056 and a cash balance of $5.5 million on June 30.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, October 27, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today you really have the travel bug! Many of you will be making plans to escape somewhere, either now or in the future. Others will sign up for courses to learn something new. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sex drive is very strong today! However, your desire to defend your best interests in matters about insurance, taxes and shared wealth is equally strong. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful not to arouse opposition against you today, because you could be overwhelmed by it. Go gently. People (including you) feel very competitive today. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re willing to work very hard to get a lot done today, especially if you can use the efforts of others. You’re ready to rally your troops and delegate duties to everyone! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful, competitive day! Enjoy pranks, flirtations and fun times with others. Sports events and social occasions will be excessive and over the top. (Do not drink and drive.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be patient and diplomatic with family members today, because you could overreact to something someone says. (Perhaps it’s because you’re so determined to introduce improvements to where you live.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Make sure you don’t promise more than you can deliver when talking to others today. It’s very tempting to do this because you believe in yourself! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Guard against spending too much money today or thinking that you have more than you actually have. This is a classic day to go overboard. Aagghh. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’re pumped with energy today because you feel so enthusiastic about something. You always get like this when foreign shores beckon or adventure is at hand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be hatching some secret plans today because you’re playing your cards very close to your chest. Keep an eye on what others are doing as well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Group activities will be fun and exciting; however, don’t let competition make you lose your good judgment. Think about your long-term objectives. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t bite off more than you can chew today to impress bosses, parents and authority figures. (Because you will be tempted to do this.) Remain realistic. (Do yourself this favor.) YOU BORN TODAY You always do your homework, which is why those who work with you think you’re so professional. You’re also intrigued with how things work behind the scenes. You have excellent money savvy and demand high standards of those around you. Essentially, you’re a friendly but serious person. Set aside some time in the coming year to learn something valuable. (You’ll be glad you did.) Birthdate of: Julia Roberts, actress; Annie Potts, actress; Bill Gates, Microsoft billionaire. (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. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.
