Veteran Shelby County Commissioners Larry Kleinhans and Jack Toomey issued individual announcements Tuesday stating they will not seek re-election to the Board of Commissioners in 2012. Both seats will be filled at the November 2012 election. Chris Gibbs, Shelby County Republican Party chairman, said Tuesday that two Republicans, Terry Pellman, of Sidney, and Tony Bornhorst, of Fort Loramie, will begin circu-

Today’s edition of the Sidney Daily News includes two 30-page inserts which explain state issues that will appear on the ballot in the Nov. 8 election. Also included are arguments for both approving and rejecting the initiatives. Issue 1 is a proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution. It would increase the maximum age at which a person may be elected or appointed judge, would eliminate the authority of the General Assembly to establish courts of conciliation, and would eliminate the authority of the governor to appoint a supreme court commission. Issue 2 is a referendum on a new law relative to government union contracts and other government employment contracts and policies. Issue 3 is also a proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution. It would preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care and health care coverage.



be stabilizing, “This will be an opportune time for the next person to settle into the petition.” Toomey’s letter, dated Tuesday, states: “I would like to inform the citizens of Shelby County that I will not be seeking my fourth term as your Shelby County Commissioner. Decisions of this nature take a lot of thought and certainly the



support of your spouse. “With the primary for local, state and U.S. Senate candidates being held in the month of March, I felt this is the time for me to make my announcement. This will allow those who are interested in running for the position of county commissioner adequate time to pick up their petitions and obtain the See KLEINHANS/Page 6

BY TOM BARNETT Allegations the 2011 Shelby County Fair’s grand champion barrow tested positive for drugs are still pending with the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Animal Health Division, Erica Pitchford, an ODA public relations representative, told the Sidney Daily News Monday. “It’s still pending in our enforcement section,” Pitchford told a reporter. “They’re still

analyzing evidence collected from the animal. The investigation is still ongoing.” Pitchford said she was unable to say why the investigation has taken so long. Also contacted Monday, Fair Secretary Jerry Schaffner said the Shelby County Agricultural Society (Fair Board) has heard nothing further concerning the alleged incident. “Typically,” he said, “the board will hear from ODA See FAIR/Page 4

4 seek council at-large seats BY TOM BARNETT

“If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.” — James Thurber (18941961) For more on today in history, turn to Page 12.

Four local residents are seeking election to the three at-large Sidney City Council seats subject to the Tuesday general election. Sidney voters in all precincts cast ballots for council’s at-large seats. Mayor Michael Barhorst, 61, is the only incumbent among the group as fellow council members Frank Mariano and Terry Pellman are not seeking re-election. Barhorst resides at 604 N. West Ave. He is president of Lehman Catholic High School. He and wife, Jenny, have two adult children. Tom and Sarah, Rufus “Rick” Sims Jr., 62, 921 E. Parkwood St., is a former councilman and vice mayor of Sidney. He is employed by Century Link Communications and previously has served more than 13 years on council, eight as vice mayor.

lating petitions to replace Kleinhans and Toomey. Kleinhans and Toomey also are Republicans. Kleinhans’ announcement, dated Oct. 17, reflects considerable thought given the decision: “I along with the support of my wife, Sarah, have decided that I will not run for a fifth term as your Shelby County Commissioner. “First of all, age is becoming a factor and secondly, the challenging times that local government has gone through the past few years appear to

To help voters make their three choices, the Sidney Daily News is publishing their answers to a series of questions related to city issues: 1. Why are you seeking the job? What do you feel you can contribute? What experience and qualities will you bring to City Council ? Barhorst: When I left office in 1989, I had no intention of running for public office again. Through the encouragement of many within the community, I re-entered the public arena four years ago. It is somewhat ironic that hav-



ing helped guide the city through the economic downturn during the Carter presidency, I would have the same opportunity again. I am seeking re-election because there are so many projects currently in process that remain unfinished. Sims: I am hoping to return to council to fulfill a goal I set for myself to be an active participant in shaping our community. One of the best ways is to serve on City Council. I would say I bring a wealth of knowledge, having served on council from 1994 to See COUNCIL/Page 20

It was freezing or below five days after early highs of 70 degrees or better five of the month’s 31 days. precipitation Total during the month was 3.62 inches, including a 1.86-inch 24-hour rainfall on Oct. 19.

Abortion foes to air ad on Ohio’s ‘Heartbeat Bill’ COLUMBUS (AP) — Supporters of an Ohio bill that would ban abortions after the first detectable fetal heartbeat will begin airing an ad in Dayton on Tuesday, urging voters to ask their state Senators to pass the bill. Ohio ProLife Action says their ad will air on the FOX News cable

channel during The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity. If passed, the proposal would be one of the strictest anti-abortion measures in the U.S. A transcript of the voiceover says that the bill would “save the equivalent of a school bus full of children every single day.”

GOP tries to woo black lawmakers for map deal BY ANDY BROWNFIELD Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Republicans continued efforts Tuesday to resolve a dispute with Democrats over the state’s new congressional districts, even as the head of the state Democratic party vowed to move forward with a campaign to get the Republican-favoring map thrown out by voters. The disagreement has thrown into limbo congressional lines in a key battleground state ahead of the 2012 presidential election. The 15-member Ohio Legislative Black Caucus was at the center of the negotiations because of the bargaining clout associated with minority representation among voters. Its members told The Associated Press that the verbal concepts for a new map that they’d heard from ruling Republicans were a good start, but

their ideas didn’t meet the larger Democratic demand for an entirely new map with more competitive districts. An analysis by voter groups of the map passed in September suggests that 12 of the 16 congressional districts favor Republicans while the other four lean Democratic. Ohio is losing two congressional districts due to slow population growth; both parties stand to lose one seat each. As private compromise talks took place Tuesday, the Ohio Democratic Party kicked off its official petition drive to put the map’s fate in the hands of voters in 2012 — an effort that has placed the new map on hold while signatures are gathered. Black caucus members said they’ve been presented a proposal for a revised map that creates larger concentrations of minorities in districts containing Dayton, Cincinnati, Toledo

and Columbus. In interviews with the AP, however, they said the GOP proposal looks largely like the map approved in September — a map that came under fire from Democrats and voter groups that said it was gerrymandered to protect Republicans’ majority in Ohio’s congressional delegation. Knowing it was likely black lawmakers’ last chance to create districts favorable to minorities, and thus more Democrats, the caucus was mulling its options Tuesday. Republicans were considering holding fast to their existing map if Democrats rejected their compromise offer, to see how the repeal effort proceeds. Democrats have until Christmas Day to submit State Rep. Clayton Luckie, a Dayton Democrat, said that the original GOP-drawn map split apart most minority communities.

Ohio group likely to suggest new exotic animal ban COLUMBUS (AP) — New ownership of lions, tigers and other dangerous animals likely would be banned in the state under proposed rules that would allow existing owners to keep them but require them to face new permit rules, according to members of a committee studying exotic animals. The group has a Nov. 30 deadline to make recommendations for updating Ohio’s laws. It’s held

expedited meetings since last month, when police were forced to kill 48 wild animals — including endangered Bengal tigers — after their owner freed them from his Zanesville farm and then committed suicide. Ohio has some of the nation’s weakest restrictions on exotic pets, and efforts to strengthen the regulations have taken on new urgency since farm owner Terry Thompson

opened the cages at let the animals out. Gov. John Kasich on Monday urged the group in a conference call to move swiftly on a plan that includes humane conditions for the animals, protects the public and ensures that an incident like that in Zanesville could never happen again. The panel’s recommendations are only suggestions to state officials. Its

ideas would have to be drafted into legislation, heard before committees and passed by the state legislature before becoming law. The group likely will recommend the state bar the sale, trade and purchase of exotic animals, Debbie Leahy, a captive wildlife regulatory specialist for the Humane Society of the United States, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

City manager search narrowed to five Following a special meeting held in executive session Monday night, Sidney City Council and consultant Matthew Kridler, of Springfield, selected five Sidney city manager candidates for interviews. They are: • Mark Cundiff, manager of the village of Yellow Springs.

• Gary DuFour, former city manager of Weirton, W. Va. • Richard Girou, former city manager of Wauchula, Fla. • Patrick McGinnis, city manager of Grand Haven, Mich. • Michael Stampfler, former city manager of Talladega, Ala. Interviews are being scheduled

for Nov. 19, with second interviews, as needed, tentatively scheduled Nov. 29. Council hopes to make an employment offer to its top candidate and begin contract negotiations by Dec. 12 and make a formal appointment by Dec. 19.

Progress reported WASHINGTON (AP) — Some progress. Still needs improvement. The nation’s report card on math and reading shows fourth- and eighthgraders scoring their best ever in math and eighth graders making some progress in reading. But the results released Tuesday are a stark reminder of just how far the nation’s school kids are from achieving the No Child Left Behind law’s goal that every child in America be proficient in math and reading by 2014. Just a little more than one-third of the students were proficient or higher in reading. In math, 40 percent of the fourthgraders and 35 percent of the eighth-graders had reached that level. The figures were from the National Assessment of Educational Progress.

Overdose deaths up NEW YORK (AP) — The number of overdose deaths from powerful painkillers more than tripled over a decade, the government reported Tuesday — a trend that a U.S. health official called an epidemic, but one that can be stopped. Prescription painkillers such as OxyContin, Vicodin and methadone led to the deaths of almost 15,000 people in 2008, including actor Heath Ledger. That’s more than three times the 4,000 deaths from narcotics in 1999. Such painkillers “are meant to help people who have severe pain,” said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, which issued the report. “They are, however, highly addictive.”

Greek government refuses to back down on debt vote BY ELENA BECATOROS Associated Press ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The Greek government teetered and markets around the world plunged Tuesday after the prime minister’s stunning decision to put a hard-fought European debt deal up for a risky public vote. As governing Socialist party lawmakers in Athens revolted and European leaders watched anxiously, the ripples reached Wall Street, where investors unloaded stocks and euros because of fear that the Greek turmoil would unleash protracted financial chaos across the globe. Market reaction was brutal, particularly in Europe, with the Athens exchange down a massive 6.92 percent on worries the turmoil could bring down the government. France’s bourse closed down 5.38 percent, while Italy’s main index slumped 6.7 percent. The backlash against Prime Minister George Papandreou’s risky gamble to announce a referendum was swift. The premier came under criticism from across Europe, within Greece and from his own Socialist party, which has been clinging to an ever-shrinking parliamentary majority. Papandreou convened his ministers late Tuesday, with deputy government spokesman Angelos Tolkas insisting the premier was sticking to his position. “The government is not

Cancer risk increases CHICAGO (AP) — Whether sipping beer, wine or whiskey, women who drink just three alcoholic beverages a week face slightly higher chances for developing breast cancer compared with teetotalers, a study of more than 100,000 U.S. nurses found. The link between alcohol and breast cancer isn’t new, but most previous studies found no increased risk for breast cancer among light drinkers. The new research provides compelling evidence because it followed so many women for up to almost 30 years, experts said.

OUT OF THE BLUE Man breaks in to watch TV PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Police in Oregon say a man broke into a home in Portland to watch television. The Oregonian reports that 32-year-old Jason Leon Bastrom faces charges of criminal trespass after the homeowner called police. Police say Bastrom let himself in through an unlocked front door early Sunday and sat down on the couch to watch television. They say the homeowner alerted authorities, and then sent over a family member who lived nearby. Authorities say the family member confronted Bastrom and struck him in the head, knocking him unconscious. Authorities took Bastrom to the hospital to be treated for injuries before booking him into the Multnomah County Jail.

IN THIS Monday photo, Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain speaks at the National Press Club in Washington. Herman Cain denies he’s changed his story as he struggles to contain the fallout from sexual harassment allegations from the 1990s when he led the National Restaurant Association.

Cain defends self, says he never changed story BY SHANNON MCCAFFREY Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Presidential candidate Herman Cain said Tuesday that he never changed his story about sexual harassment allegations against him in the 1990s while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association, despite giving a series of conflicting statements in the two days since the accusations were disclosed. A day earlier, Cain had said he was unaware of a financial settlement given a female employee in connection with allegations Cain had engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior. He later acknowledged he was aware of an “agreement” but not a settlement. “It was an agreement. So it looked like I had changed my story. I didn’t change my story,” Cain told CNN’s Headline News. “The difference between settlement and agreement, it makes a difference to me.” Over the past two days, Cain has admitted he knew of one agreement between the National Restaurant Association

and a woman who accused him of sexual harassment. He has said the woman initially asked for a large financial settlement but ultimately received two to three months’ pay as part of a separation agreement. Cain also acknowledged remembering one of the woman’s accusations against him, saying he stepped close to her to make a reference to her height, and told her she was the same height as his wife. He has said he is not aware of any other agreements or settlements with any other women, though Politico — which first disclosed the allegations Sunday night — reported that the trade group had given financial settlements to at least two female employees who accused the entrepreneur of inappropriate sexual behavior. The Georgia businessman who is near the top of national polls in the Republican presidential race was in his second day Tuesday of damage-control mode as he looked to blunt the fallout of years-old sexual harassment accusations that surfaced just two months before the leadoff Iowa presidential caucuses.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The European debt crisis has claimed its first big casualty on Wall Street, a securities firm run by former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine. MF Global Holdings Ltd., which Corzine has headed since early last year, filed for bankruptcy protection Monday. Concerns about the company’s holdings of European debt caused business partners to pull back last week, leading to a severe cash crunch, the company said in papers filed in federal bankruptcy court. Corzine, the former head of investment banking giant Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (OOTC:GSGRP) (NYSE:GS) , oversaw MF Global as it amassed $6 billion in debt issued by financially strapped European countries such as Italy, Spain and Portugal. Their bonds paid bigger returns than U.S. Treasury debt because bond investors believed that they were more likely to default. That bet eventually doomed the company. Its regulator complained last month that it was overvaluing European debt, forcing it to raise more money, according to papers filed with U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. Last week, MF Global reported its biggest ever quarterly loss. Credit rating agencies downgraded MF Global last week. Its stock plunged 66 percent. Spooked business partners required it to post more money to guarantee its trades. Before long, the company was short on cash. MF Global looked for outside investors or buyers, but no alternative emerged before the regulators’ deadline, the court papers said. Trading in shares of MF Global Holdings Ltd. was halted early Monday.

Bank backs down on $5 debit card fee NEW YORK (AP) — Bank of America Corp. is scrapping its plan to charge a $5 monthly fee for debit card purchases after outraged customers threatened an exodus. The about-face comes as customers across the country petitioned the bank and mobilized to close their accounts in favor of credit unions and community banks. The outcry prompted other major banks, including JPMorgan Chase to cancel trial tests of their own debit card fees. Bank of America reversed course after listening to an outcry from its customers. Anne Pace, a spokeswoman for Bank of America, declined to

say whether there was a spike in account closures following the September announcement that it would start charging the fee early next year. The industry-wide retreat on the debit card fee is a rare victory for consumers who have been dealt an onslaught of new and higher checking account fees in the past year. “When I heard about the fee, it was the last straw for me,” said Molly Katchpole, a 22-year-old nanny whose online petition urging Bank of America to drop the debit fee captured more than 300,000 signatures. “I’m living paycheck to paycheck and one more fee was just too much.”

He needs to cut back on his consumption of salt from other foods too. Gatorade keeps him hydrated, but he can stay hydrated with water. Dehydration is a proven cause of kidney stones.

A challenge for County spikers Of 3 SCL teams, two face No. 1-ranked foes, the other the defending state champs BY KEN BARHORST It’s quite a challenge facing the three Shelby County League teams who are playing in regional volleyball action beginning tonight. The three are Anna in Division III and Jackson Center and Fort Loramie in Division II. Here’s the challenge: Two of them, Anna and Jackson Center, face state No. 1ranked teams in Miami East and St. Henry, respectively. And the third, Fort Loramie, takes on the defending state champion. In addition to being a challenge, it’s quite the golden opportunity to put County volleyball on the map, too. Anna takes first crack at it, playing Miami East tonight at 6 p.m. in the D-III Regional semifinals at Trent Arena in Kettering. A win by the Lady Rockets puts them in the championship game on Saturday against either Cincinnati Purcell-Marian or defending state champion Middletown Fenwick. Anna had its struggles during the regular season, finishing at 12-10 and in fourth place in the County standings. But the Lady Rockets have really put it together since tournament play began, beating four straight teams with better records, including the Nos. 2 and 4 seeds in the sectional. Last weekend, Anna dominated an overmatched Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy team in three straight to earn a return trip to the regional tournament. Last season, the Lady Rockets lost to eventual state champion Fenwick. “It could be that we’re a young team and it was just a matter of getting experience and getting familiar with each other,” said head coach Amy Cobb. “There are games where we play well and games where

had the tournament draw, so they haven’t faced the competition we have in the tournament so far. I think this will probably be one of their toughest games.”

Jackson-St. Henry Jackson Center takes on Division IV’s No. 1-ranked team in 24-1 St. Henry on Thursday at Tipp City at 6 p.m. Interestingly, St. Henry’s only loss came to Miami East in the third match of the season at the Coldwater Spikeoff Classic. “I know coach (Diana) Kramer very well and she does a great job,” said Jackson Center coach Kim Metz, who is taking a team to the regional tournament for the 10th time in the past 12 seasons. “St. Henry does a tremendous job with ball control. That’s their strength.” St. Henry is led by Katie Hoyng, the Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year. She has 250 kills and 186 digs so far. Ashley Heitkamp had 136 kills and Abby Brunswick 135 to go with 392 assists. Jackson can counter with County Player of the Year Ann Frieders, who led the area in assists this season with 559 and also had 230 digs. Brooke Richard led in kills with 192 and led in digs with 245, while Brittany Foster and freshman Haley Elchert gave Jackson two more excelSDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg lent hitters with 166 and 133 FORT LORAMIE’S Kelly Turner (3) goes up for a kill in action kills during the regular seaSaturday in the Division IV District championship game son. against Southeastern at Troy.

Reds cut Cordero loose CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds exercised second baseman Brandon Phillips’ contract option for 2012 on Monday, but declined a $12 million option to keep closer Francisco Cordero for one more season. The Reds also lost left-hander Matt Maloney, who was claimed off waivers by Minnesota on Monday. Phillips batted .300 with 18 homers, 82 RBIs and six errors last season, when he became an All-Star for the second time. The two-time Gold Glove winner finished second to Pittsburgh’s Neil Walker in fielding percentage by a second baseman. Cincinnati picked up his $12 million option and is trying to negotiate a multiyear deal.

“We’re going to continue to talk about extending him long-term if possible,” general manager Walt Jocketty said in a phone interview. Jocketty said the Reds basically had to decide between keeping Phillips or Cordero, given their payroll constraints. The Reds decided to pay a $1 million buyout to Cordero, who becomes a free agent but could stay with Cincinnati if he’s willing to take a reduced contract. “We have a lot of tough decisions we’ve had to make this offseason going forward,” Jocketty said. “We’ll continue to talk with (Cordero). This also gives him an opportunity to see what the market is like.”

Cordero was 37 of 43 in save chances, including 20 of 21 after the All-Star break. The 36-year-old reliever ranks 12th with 327 career saves. Cordero signed a four-year, $46 million deal with the Reds after the 2007 season as a free agent from Milwaukee. He saved 34, 39, 40 and 37 games in each of those four seasons. Only two other Reds had a save last season, Nick Masset and Aroldis Chapman with one apiece. Maloney cracked a rib and was on the disabled list from May 29 to Aug. 16. He went 03 with a 9.16 ERA in two starts and six relief appearances for the Reds. He was 71 with a 2.99 ERA in 13 starts and one relief appearance at Triple-A Louisville.

Browns waive WR Robiskie CLEVELAND (AP) — Wide receiver Brian Robiskie has been sent on his final downand-out by the Browns. A former second-round draft pick, Robiskie was waived Tuesday by Cleveland to make room for free agent running back Thomas Clayton, who played in two games for them last season and has been brought back because of injuries to Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty. The Browns selected Robiskie with the No. 36 overall pick in 2009 out of Ohio State. A former ballboy for the Brian Robiskie Browns when his father, Terry, was a Cleveland assis- caught seven passes as a tant and later the team’s in- rookie. Last year, he made 11 terim head coach, Robiskie starts and finished with 29

catches for 310 yards and three touchdowns. However, the 24-year-old’s role was reduced this season and he has steadily slipped down first-year coach Pat Shurmur’s depth chart. With Hillis and Hardesty injured, the Browns were in dire need of a running back and signed Clayton, a player with whom they have some background. On Tuesday, the Browns had running backs in for workouts at their training facility in Berea before settling on and signing Clayton, who was active in two games for Cleveland in 2010. Clayton was with Seattle during the preseason before he was released.


to St. Henry. But of course, they have to get past the Lady Redskins first. Lehman beat Fort Loramie in three games late in the season. Fort Loramie has come back with another impressive season considering most of the players off last year’s team graduated. That team was 234 and won the County championship with a perfect 12-0 record. This season, the Lady Redskins are 18-8 and won the County title at 10-2. They have a wealth of good hitters, led by sophomore Darian Rose with 177 kills this season. Kelly Turner has 157, Reggi Brandewie 142 and Lindsey Hilgefort 135. Danielle Wehrman, who was first-team All-County, leads the defense with 251 digs. Rose was a second-team all-leaguer. In Lehman, Loramie faces the most tradition-rich school in the area when it comes to volleyball. Lehman won the state championship in 2005, then last season snapped Marion Local’s string of three in a row by winning the D-IV crown. Prior to that, Lehman lost in the state championship game in 1993, lost in the state semifinals in 1998, won the DIII state championship in 2000, and was D-III runnerup in 2003. This season, the Lady Cavs’ three losses have been to St. Henry, Miami East and Chaminade. Lehman also has plenty of hitters, with five players having over 100 kills during the regular season. Ellie Waldsmith led with 166 kills, Morgan Schmitmeyer had 161, Andrea Thobe 146, Lindsey Spearman 109, and Paxton Hatcher 104. Andrea Thobe had 390 assists, and Spearman was a weapon at the service line with 53 aces. Erica Paulus was the dig leader with 313.

OSU’s Miller No playoff games at SMS Big 10 Frosh of the Week BY KEN BARHORST AND DAVE ROSS

COLUMBUS (AP) — What’s brewing with the 2011 Ohio State Buckeyes ... BUCKEYES BUZZ: Ohio State didn’t have the offensive, defensive or special-teams players of the week in the Big Ten. But it sure had the top freshman. QB Braxton Miller was announced as the honoree by the league office on Monday. All the rookie from Huber Heights Wayne HS did in that dramatic 33-29 victory over No. 12 Wisconsin was rush for two TDs and pass for another, the game-winning 40-yard rainbow to Devin Smith with just 20 seconds left. Miller finished with nearly 200 yards of total offense, including a career-high 99 rushing yards. He was 7 of 12 passing for 89 yards. The other Big Ten players of the week were: Northwestern TE Drake Dunsmore (4 TD catches in a win over Indiana); Penn State LB Gerald Hodges (careerbest 19 tackles in win over Illinois); and Minnesota K Jordan (converted Wettstein successful onside kick to set up winning TD over Iowa and help the Gophers keep the Floyd of Rosedale trophy). MEMORABLE ENDINGS: In case you believe Saturday night provided the most drama, action and excitement you’ve ever seen at the conclusion of an Ohio State game,

here’s a look at other heart-stoppers you might not know as well: /feed/312671 CHANGES: A necessary byproduct of all the recast conferences is scheduling headaches. Ohio State must get involved now that the Big East is being reconfigured. It will likely host Central Florida at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 8, 2012. The Buckeyes also announced Monday the game initially set for that date against the University of Cincinnati will probably be moved to 2018 in Ohio Stadium. The announcements were made even though agreements between the schools have yet to be finalized. The Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday that UCF athletic director Keith Tribble said the Knights were on the verge of signing an agreement to play at Ohio State in 2012. UCF was originally slated to play Pittsburgh next season, but the Panthers asked to be released from the agreement. Tribble said UCF agreed and began searching for a high-profile road game, eventually reaching a one-game verbal agreement with Ohio State. In other words, this is just the first domino of several because of all the changes in conference affiliations.

This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who saw the field conditions at Sidney Memorial Stadium, but there will not be any playoff games held locally this season. It’s worth noting that the OHSAA likes artificial turf. A year ago only three of 84 neutral site games were played on natural grass, one in Sidney. Aggressive maintenance of the playing surface at Sidney Memorial Stadium is already underway and funded by private donations. SHS Athletic Director Jeff Courter says the goal is to lay the foundation this fall for a field that will look great for graduation in the spring, and be fully ready for football in August.

Wapak stays in Wapakoneta finished with a 9-1 record and has been playoff-bound all season. But they got a scare last weekend when there was a question of an ineligible player that may have forced a forfeit of their nine wins. That would have, of course, nullified the playoff spot. But the OHSAA announced Monday that Wapak is still in the postseason. Following is the statement released by the OHSAA on the matter: “The OHSAA had a concern with the eligibility of a student-athlete on the Wapakoneta football team and whether or not he was satisfying the standards of the transfer bylaw. OHSAA officials met with administrators from the school on Monday morning. The OHSAA has determined that school officials were

Honda to cut U.S., Canada production by half BY TOM KRISHER Associated Press DETROIT (AP) — Parts shortages from three months of catastrophic flooding in Thailand have forced Honda to cut U.S. and Canadian factory production by 50 percent for the second time this year, the automaker said Monday. The cuts, which come just as Honda was recovering from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, will run from Wednesday at least through Nov. 10 as Honda tries to find alternate sources for microprocessors that are made in Thailand. The flooding, which began in July and has forced many auto parts plants to close, also affected Toyota Motor Co., which cut overtime for production in North America through the end of this week. Honda Motor Co.’s announcement comes the same day the Japanese automaker announced that its quarterly profit tumbled 56 percent, battered by the strong yen and production disruptions from the March tsunami disaster. The automaker, which makes the Accord and Civic sedans, said Monday that net profit for the July-September fiscal second quarter fell to 60.4 billion yen ($788 million).

Quarterly sales sank 16.3 percent from a year earlier to 1.885 trillion yen ($24.6 billion), with sales in North America falling the most — 22.3 percent. Flooding in Thailand, where Honda has parts suppliers and assembly lines, made it too difficult to forecast earnings for the full fiscal year through March 2012. A projection will be announced when it becomes available, the company said. Honda also said it will stop all production in the U.S. and Canada for one day on Nov. 11, and all Saturday overtime work will be canceled through November. Spokesman Ed Miller said it’s too early to tell if there will be a repeat of model shortages that occurred during the summer and early fall due to parts shortages from the earthquake and tsunami. The company said in a statement that the December sale date for the 2012 version of the popular CR-V crossover vehicle could be delayed by several weeks. Honda says it will announce the sale date in the near future. Last year, 87 percent of the Honda and Acura luxury vehicles sold in the U.S. were made in North America, the company said. Most of the parts are produced here, but a few

critical electronic parts such as engine control modules come from Thailand and other countries, Honda said. Miller said the company is trying to find other sources for the parts made in Thailand, but production of newer models such as the Civic compact and CR-V will be most affected by the parts shortages. Honda said it will not lay off any workers at its U.S. and Canadian auto plants. The company has 21,000 U.S. factory workers and 10 U.S. and Canadian auto factories in Ohio, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana and Alliston, Ontario. Other major automakers also were affected by the flooding in Thailand, but only Honda and Toyota reported factory disruptions in North America. Nissan Motor Co. said its plant in Thailand would be down until Friday because of parts shortages, while Ford Motor Co. said production had ceased at plants in Thailand and South Africa. General Motors Co., Chrysler Group LLC and Hyundai Motor Co. reported no production problems. The Thai floods are the latest blow to Japanese manufacturers as they struggle to recover from the tsunami while also being pummeled by the yen’s record surge.

Cedar Fair spends $90M on new rides SANDUSKY (AP) — Amusement park operator Cedar Fair Entertainment Co. says it’s investing $90 million on new thrill rides, attractions and upgrades for next year. The Sandusky-based company said Tuesday that it will have spent more than $1 billion on

capital improvements at its theme parks, water parks and resorts over 15 years. Cedar Fair says the most impressive new ride for 2012 is the $27 million Leviathan roller coaster already announced for Canada’s Wonderland in Toronto. The steel coaster will

stand 306 feet tall and reach speeds of 92 mph. Other new headliners for next season include the Stinger, a roller coaster at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pa., and WindSeeker swing rides for both Kings Dominion in Virginia and Carowinds park in North Carolina.

Earlier Monday, Japanese authorities intervened in the currency market to weaken the yen against the dollar and ease pressure on Japanexporters. That ese caused the dollar to jump nearly 5 percent to above 79 yen after earlier touching a post-World War II low of 75.32 yen — a level that is excruciating for exporters such as Toyota and Nintendo Co. Honda said revenue from nearly all regions declined. Domestic sales were down 13.2 percent, revenue from Europe sank 10.4 percent, and in Asia outside Japan, sales fell 10 percent. Sales to South America, Africa and the Mideast inched up 0.8 percent from a year earlier, the company said. The Thailand floods were fed by unusually heavy monsoon rains and a string of tropical storms. They have killed 381 people and affected more than a third of the country’s provinces. The flooding has destroyed of acres millions (hectares) of crops and forced thousands of factories to close. Officials said Monday they hoped seven submerged industrial areas would be running again in about three months. They house the factories of global companies including Honda, Toshiba and Western Digital.

Students sell fruit Students from Lehman Catholic High School who participate in music programs have kicked off the annual sale of citrus fruit. Vocal and instrumental students are selling a variety of items, including oranges, grapefruit, tangelos, tangerines, pears and apples. Small (20-pound) and large (40-pound) boxes of navel oranges, juice oranges and grapefruit continue to be the primary sellers and thus the focus of the sale, but gift boxes and combination orders are becoming increasingly popular, school officials said. Tangerines, apples and pears can be ordered in a “suitcase-sized” box. Tangelos (a cross between a tangerine and grapefruit) are also available in large or small boxes. The annual citrus sale is one of the primary sources of revenue for the Lehman Catholic High School Music Department. The sale is sponsored by the Lehman Music Boosters, who raise more than $30,000 each year to provide support for the school’s music programs. The Music Boosters provide funding for transportation, instruments and instrument maintenance, music, equipment, uniforms, contest fees, awards and other items needed by the Lehman band and choirs. As a sales incentive, music students participating in this year’s citrus sale receive 15 percent of their sales as trip credits for the Music Department trip to Memphis and Nashville in the spring of 2012. Members of the community wishing to place orders can contact any Lehman music student or email the school ( and a student will contact them. Orders can also be made by contacting Joan Schroeder (498-1001) or Linda Vogann (778-9324). Orders must be placed no later than Nov. 16. Delivery is expected the first week of December.

COUNCIL 2007 and numerous other and county community boards and committees. I’m a Sidney High graduate, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and have been employed for 36 years with Centurylink Communications. Hewitt: I want to serve my community and the town I love. I think Sidney’s best days are still ahead. I think my experience will help me contribute strategically to our growth and development. Haver: I am seeking the position because I have always had a passion for public service and politics. I have enjoyed working to make my situation better. I’m a hard worker with good moral character. I bring real-world experience as well as educational experience to the table and have degrees in business management and criminal justice leadership. 2. What do you believe is the main difference between you and your opponents? Haver: I believe one difference that may set me aside from my opponents is the ability to leave personal bias aside and view both sides of any issue. While I believe it is important to have personal values, it is also important to listen to other points of view before making decisions that will affect everyone. Hewitt: I wish my opponents well and look forward to working together to build a brighter future for Sidney. Sims: After serving more than 13 years on City Council, eight as vice mayor, I have gained the skills and leadership it takes to be an effective member of council. I have also kept informed of council’s agenda topics by attending as many meetings as possible. Barhorst: I know two of the three other candidates. I would suspect that all of the candidates have unique experiences and perspectives they would bring to office. What sets me apart from them is my own life experiences. They include being raised on a working farm, five years experience in a manufacturing environment and my 38 years as an educator. I also have extensive community service experience including 16 years as a member of City Council, 12 years as a member of the board of Clear Creek Farm, six years as an elected member of the state committee of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and 20 years as chairman of the Governor’s Community Traffic Safety Network. 3. What, in your opinion, is Sidney’s most pressing challenge in the year ahead? Barhorst: Without question, the most pressing challenge is the impact of the global economic downturn. That downturn has led to Sidney’s high unemployment rate, and the resulting decline in income tax revenue that has forced the reduction of city staff by 52 positions or more than 20 percent Those reductions have forced us to eliminate services that have impacted the quality of life while preserving essential safety services. City hall has a lot of empty office space. I suspect that virtually every employee is doing more with less — just like their counterparts in business and industry. Even so, it has been challenging to continue to balance the budget. Sims: With the current economic conditions, the city has been aggressive finding ways to cut costs and generate additional revenue. I feel the economy will be the most challenging for the city. With more residents continuing to lose their jobs and homes, the city will be faced with finding ways to deliver services at

Sidney City Council Term: Four years Base salary: $2,000. (Mayor receives $3,000). Mayor is elected by vote of council members. Duties: At-large council members represent all wards of the city and are elected by voters in all city precincts. the current level. Hewitt: Jobs, jobs and jobs, We need more economic growth and development. If Honda is here, certainly other businesses would find our work ethic and central location appealing. Haver: The most pressing challenge in the years ahead is the same here as it is nationally. That issue is employment. Unemployment affects many aspects of life, from personal issues of the unemployed to revenue for the city and its services. Bringing jobs to the city of Sidney must be a focus in the years to com. 4. What are your views on funding and developing the city’s new water source? Haver: Bringing jobs to the area and creating more revenue for the city without raising taxes would be the ideal way to fund the new water source. Also, seeking grant monies through organizations such as the EPA and Ohio Department of Natural Resources may be a possibility. Tax hikes and fee increases should be the last resort. Hewitt: Water is an exceptionally important resource and we are lucky that ours has been secured for the immediate future. Sims: While I support the idea of a new water source, I am very concerned that with the current trend of the economy we can accomplish completion of this project as soon as we would like. It is a project that is important for the future growth of our community. Barhorst: The city’s primary water source is currently surface water from the Great Miami River. For more than six decades, there have been efforts to find an alternate source that will provide a dependable supply of water for our residents and our industries. When we came within hours of having to shut down major industries during the drought of 1993, I thought finding an alternate water source would be at the top of the “to do” list. But the rains came, the drought ended and other priorities became more important. If we were forced to shut down our major industrial water users, the economic impact would be devastating to them, their employees and the community. We have finally located a source of underground water and are in the process of negotiating for the property on which the well field is located Constructing a pipeline will be expensive, but will eliminate the problems associated with surface water. 5. Do you feel the city should continue to dictate community standards (sidewalks, home maintenance) and what are your views on tougher property maintenance standards? Sims: In my opinion, current property maintenance standards are adequate. I understand it is a major concern of a lot of residents who take pride in their property. The issue, I feel, is more help is needed from the community identifying problem proper-

ties and following up to make sure the problem is addressed. It can be a long process and seems like the wheels of government turn too slow. This very issue was the main topic at a meeting I attended recently. There were concerns potential new residents would not locate here because of property maintenance issues. Barhorst: The appearance of the community — the first impression a visitor receives when stopping in Sidney — often makes a significant difference as to whether they stay here or go elsewhere. It is a topic that has dominated meetings with corporate executives and citizens on the street. There seems to be a consensus that council needs to take a close look at the city’s property maintenance codes and strengthen them where necessary. I believe we can do this without infringing on upon individual rights or creating undue hardship for property owners. Hewitt: It is important to fix problem buildings and homes for our own safety, but I think governments — and people — need to be mindful of the tough economic conditions and let property owners exercise their full rights in maintaining and keeping their property. Haver: I believe the city’s involvement is relative to the problem. Sidewalks should be maintained by the city. That’s what city taxes are for. At the very least, there should be shared cost between the city and property owner for sidewalk repair, considering the walks are primarily for public use. Also, the city should only be involved in a person’s property if it infringes on the rights and/or property of a neighbor/neighborhood. However, standards for commercial property should be held to a higher standard because of public use. Public safety should always take precedence, regardless whether the property is public or private. 6. What do you feel the city can do to fill its empty storefronts and bring more stores and specialty businesses to the community? Haver: Esthetics of the downtown area is important. The downtown area and storefronts should be made to look appealing to potential business owners and customers. The city could potentially offer modest tax breaks and/or incentives to attract new businesses to the area. Additionally, we should survey citizens as to what types of businesses they would like to see in the downtown area. The city should then advertise for and work to attain those desired businesses. Barhorst: The best advice I’ve been given concerning the downtown was provided me by an individual who owns a number of properties in downtown Troy, all leased to tenants: “Sidney needs to brand itself — decide what it wants the downtown to be and then set about creating/building the downtown you envision. It won’t be quick and it won’t be easy, but it will work.” One thing we know that has not worked in downtown Sidney is absentee landlords who do not have roots in the community. Just two examples are the Ohio Building and the Taylor Hardware building. There are signs of hope: The positive relationship between the landlord and tenant that exists with The Bridge (restaurant), revitalization of The Historic Sidney Theater and the recent purchase of the former G.C. Murphy building by Shreves Construction Sims: This has been the topic of staff and council for a number of years. Aside from

offering incentives to locate in the downtown area, small potential businesses are concurred about parking for customers and easy access. I feel we must accept the fact that a lot of cities have the same issue and look for other opportunities for our downtown. Hewitt: Recruit new businesses. 7: How would you describe your leadership style? Are you a “team” player? Hewitt: Team player, but willing to take the lead — and the criticism — that comes with leadership. Sims: My leadership style is to keep an open mind when issues come up that may be controversial. Listen to both sides of the issue. Don’t forget that you were elected to serve the people. Each council person my have different ideas about an issue. Respect each other’s vote whether you agree or disagree. Barhorst: I do not see myself as having a single leadership style, but adapting my leadership style to the situation. If the situation requires coaching, I can coach. On the contrary, if the situation needs participatory leadership, I am able to provide the facilitation required. Those who have worked with me also know I can be both visionary and autocratic. Skills I have developed over time include communication with various publics, multi-tasking, consensus-building and relationship-building. Haver: I like to think that I am a “situational leader.” I will adapt to whatever the situation dictates. If an autocratic leader is needed, I am able to assume that role. If a team approach is warranted, I have no problem working with a team for the greater good. 8. What ideas or suggestions can you offer as City Council and staff continue to adopt cost-cutting measures to meet economic challenges that could eventually lead to reduced community services? Sims: I would suggest that staff communicate with other communities to share costsaving ideas, understanding that what might work for some might not be beneficial for Sidney. Staff has been very aggressive in finding new sources of revenue. I would say continue to search for new opportunities. Barhorst: Council has cut the budget by $5.2 million. The cost-cutting has included the elimination of 52 positions. Based upon reports received recently, staff has begun working to formulate a “doomsday budget” in case the recession worsens. The budget cuts that have been made to date have been internally painful, but relatively unnoticed by the public because essential services have been maintained. Future cuts, if necessary, would be far more noticeable by the general public. Hewitt: The quality of community services is a function of our tax income. We can only spend what we have (unlike the federal government), therefore the key to continuing and/or improving city services is to focus on economic development and job growth. Haver: As economic challenges arise, the city must prioritize services. Combine services if necessary and possible. Search for grants to help fund other services. If cuts are necessary, again, the city must prioritize and cut those services less needed. Then, when the public feels they need or want these services, a levy can be proposed and the people can decide if those services are necessary.
