In a local appearance Thursday night, retired Graham County, Ariz., Sheriff Richard Mack said Americans today are not living in a democracy. After taking on the U.S. government, President Bill Clinton and the Brady Bill, Mack minced no words in describing what he sees happening in America today. Mack, an outspoken advocate for gun rights, state sovereignty and even raw milk, believes the American way of life is disappearing and with the help of the nation’s sheriffs, he is determined to take it back. He spoke to an enthusiastic crowd of more than 200 at the Sidney Inn, in a program presented by the Sidney-Shelby County Liberty Group. Mack first became known when he decided to take on Clinton and the U.S. government by filing a lawsuit in 1994 in federal district court in Arizona to stop gun control and what he describes in one

Robert, A “Froggy” Guillozet, 55, of 1388 Stephens Guillozet Road, is currently circulating petitions to file for the seat as a Republican.

BOARD From Page 1 County.” This comes after the announcement by veteran Shelby County Commissioners Larry Kleinhans and Jack Toomey that they would not be seeking 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 circulating petitions to replace Kleinhans and Toomey.

Deputies faced charging animals BY JOHN SEEWER Associated Press

animals, including bears, lions and endangered Bengal tigers, after their owner, Terry Thompson, threw open their cages late in the afternoon on Oct. 18 and then committed suicide on his farm in rural eastern Ohio near Zanesville. Deputies said they saw the man’s body but couldn’t get near him to determine whether he was alive because a white tiger “appeared to be eating the body,” a report said. Authorities have said that it appeared one of the big cats dragged Thompson’s body and that there was a bite mark on his head. He told one of his farm hands on the night before he released the animals that he was upset about his marital problems and that he had a plan, said a deputy who talked with the caretaker. Thompson, 62, then told the caretaker: “you will know it when it happens.” The reports released

the Muskingum by County Sheriff’s office reveal the chaotic scene deputies encountered and just how close the animals came to some of them. Authorities have defended their decision to shoot and kill the animals, saying they were trying to protect the public. Their main concern appeared to be making sure none of the animals got near or outside the fences that separated the farm from several neighboring houses and Interstate 70, according to the reports released by the Muskingum County Sheriff’s office. Two deputies shot a pair of lions running near a fence along an interstate highway. A deputy says one lion got up and charged at him before he killed it. “One of the African lions that we had shot got up and started running towards us,” a deputy said. “At this point, we opened fire on it again, eventually

killing it.” One deputy said he shot a lion after it busted through a fence and race toward a road. At the same time, he saw other deputies firing at several other lions running through the front yards of neighboring houses. He then came across a mountain lion that was hissing and showing its teeth. Several of the cages and surrounding fencing had been cut, making it impossible for authorities to secure the animals, the reports said. One lion came within three feet of an auxiliary deputy who was trying to close the cage doors, but did not see a hole had been cut in the cage, Lawhorne said. Just days before he set the animals free, he told a deputy that he was having a tough time taking care of the animals after spending a year in prison on a gun conviction. He also was having marital problems and deep in debt to the IRS.

Frost said the state didn’t follow its own rules for executions on everything from staffing to checking an inmate’s veins to be sure that IV delivering the lethal chemicals can be inserted on the day of execution. In August, the state announced it would require post-execution re-

views of all lethal injections and a physical evaluation of the condemned person’s veins three weeks prior to execution as part of policy changes made in response to Frost’s criticism. Among other changes, the new policy specifies an “Order for Execution Medications” form that must be completed by those handling drugs, and it allows the warden who oversees executions to designate a doctor as an auxiliary member of the team for consultation during training or unanticipated circumstances.

TOLEDO (AP) — Deputies who arrived at a private compound in Ohio where dozens of exotic animals were set free by their owner last month encountered lions and bears charging at them and crashing through fences, forcing them to shoot and kill the animals, according to reports released Friday. They found animals crouching between abandoned vehicles and tigers still coming out of their cages. A tiger and a black bear were in the same enclosure, but the door was unlocked and open. “As I backed the team up, the tiger came out the door and charged right at us,” said deputy Jay Lawhorne. With little time to react, deputies shot the tiger. Another deputy said he shot a charging black bear that dropped within seven feet of him. Sheriff’s deputies were forced to kill 48 wild

IN THIS March 30, file photo, a protestor shouts at the broadcast of the Ohio House floor debate on Senate Bill 5 in Columbus. Roughly one in eight labor contracts for public safety workers in Ohio addresses the minimum staffing levels emphasized in campaign ads this fall, according to state estimates. Firefighters dispute the figure as too low, while police say it doesn’t tell the whole story.

Staffing negotiations Federal judge upholds execution policies at issue in union fight BY ANN SANNER Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — State estimates show roughly one in eight labor contracts for Ohio’s public safety workers contain requirements for the number of employees on duty. Minimum staffing levels have been a key issue in the ballot fight over the Ohio’s new collective bargaining law. Voters will decide Tuesday whether the overhaul should be tossed out. Firefighters dispute the state’s figures, say-

ing staffing requirements appear in more than 12 percent of their contracts alone. Police say the numbers don’t tell the whole story, because they’ve negotiated staffing levels with management into other workplace policies. The law bars public employee unions from negotiating the number of workers required to be on duty. However, a separate part of the overhaul leaves it up to management to decide whether contract talks could include overall staffing.



Job market up slightly WASHINGTON (AP) — The American job market improved modestly in October, and economists looking deeper into the numbers found reasons for optimism — or at least what counts for optimism in this agonizingly slow economic recovery. The nation added 80,000 jobs. That was fewer than the 100,000 that economists expected, but it was the 13th consecutive month of job gains. Fears of a new recession that loomed over the economy this summer have receded. The unemployment rate nudged down, to 9 percent from 9.1 in September. “Those are pretty good signs,” said Michael Hanson, senior economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “We’re hanging in there.” No one looking at Friday’s report from the Labor Department saw a quick end to the high unemployment that has plagued the nation for three years. The jobless rate has been 9 percent or higher for all but two months since June 2009.

Top U.S. general fired WASHINGTON (AP) — The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan has fired a senior officer from his job as the No. 2 general in charge of training for making disparaging remarks about Afghan President Hamid Karzai and his government. Gen. John Allen said Maj. Gen. Peter Fuller has been relieved of his duties as deputy commander for the Afghan training mission. In a recent interview with the website Politico, Fuller characterized Afghan leaders as erratic, ungrateful and isolated from reality. The interview quotes him as saying Afghan leaders don’t fully recognize America’s sacrifices on their country’s behalf. Allen said the unfortunate comments don’t represent the solid U.S. relationship with the Afghan government. There was no indication whether Fuller will be reassigned or if he would retire.

Syria peace unravels BEIRUT (AP) — A Syrian peace plan brokered by the Arab League unraveled Friday as security forces killed 15 people, opening fire on thousands of protesters who denounced President Bashar Assad and said he never intended to hold up his end of the deal to end the violence. The bloodshed, only two days after Syria agreed to the deal, suggests Damascus is unwilling — or unable — to put a swift end to a crackdown that already has killed 3,000 people since the uprising began in March. “This regime is not serious about ending its brutal crackdown,” said Mustafa Osso, a Syria-based human rights lawyer. “Today was a real test for the intentions of the regime and the answer is clear to everyone who wants to see.” The crisis in Syria has burned for nearly eight months despite widespread condemnation and international sanctions aimed at chipping away at the ailing economy and isolating Assad and his tight circle of relatives and advisers.

Isolated crew completes 520-day mock Mars mission BY VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV Associated Press MOSCOW (AP) — It seemed more like a bizarre reality TV show than high-tech international space travel experiment: Six men lived in cramped, windowless compartments for more than 17 months to simulate a mission to Mars. When they emerged from their claustrophobic capsules Friday in western Moscow, the researchers in blue jumpsuits looked haggard but were all smiles — dreaming of lying in the sun at the beach, taking long strolls and driving fast cars. Organizers said the 520day experiment was the longest mock space mission ever, measuring human responses to the confinement, stress and fatigue of a round trip to Mars — minus the weightlessness, of course. They describe it as a vital part of preparations for a future mission to the Red Planet, even though it may be decades away because of huge costs and daunting technological challenges. The facility at Moscow’s Institute for Medical and Biological Problems, Russia’s premier space medicine center, included living compartments the size of a bus,

The crew will spend three days in quarantine before holding a news conference. They spoke to relatives and friends from behind a glass panel to minimize the risk of infection. Sitev, who led the team into the quarters in June 2010 — just a few weeks after getting married — said he dreams of going to the beach. “I want to go somewhere to the warm sea as we have missed two summers here,” he said in remarks carried by RIA Novosti news agency shortly before wrapping up the mission. “My thoughts are drifting toward swimming at sea and basking on warm sand.” His Italian-Colombian crewmate Diego Urbina told RIA Novosti that he would also like to have a vacation in the Caribbean and would spend his earnings on a sports car and a pilot training course. Sukhrob Kamolov, the Russian mission doctor, said he thought the $100,000 was a lot of money when they went in, but after a year and a half in the confined space, it didn’t sound so big.

CIA tracks revolt by Twitter, Facebook BY KIMBERLY DOZIER Associated Press McLEAN, Va. (AP) — In an anonymous industrial park, CIA analysts who jokingly call themselves the “ninja librarians” are mining the mass of information people publish about themselves overseas, tracking everything from common public opinion to revolutions. The group’s effort gives the White House a daily snapshot of the world built from tweets, newspaper articles and Facebook updates. The agency’s Open Source Center sometimes looks at 5 million tweets a day. The analysts are also checking out TV news channels, local radio stations, Internet chat rooms — anything overseas that people can access and contribute to openly. The Associated Press got an apparently unprecedented view of the center’s operations, including a tour of the main facility. The AP agreed not to reveal its exact location and to withhold the identities of some who work there because much of the center’s work is secret. From Arabic to Mandarin, from an angry tweet to a thoughtful blog, the analysts gather the information, often in a native tongue. They cross-reference it with a local newspaper or a clandestinely intercepted phone conversation. From there, they build a picture sought by the highest levels at the White House. There might be a real-time peek, for example, at the mood of a region after the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden, or perhaps a prediction of which Mideast nation seems ripe for revolt.

IN THIS March 30 file photo, a mural depicting a man in shackles and the Facebook logo and a mobile phone is seen on the wall of the University of Helwan arts academy in the Zamalek neighborhood of Cairo, Egypt. The team from the CIA’s Open Source Center pores daily over tweets, Facebook, newspapers, TV news channels, local radio stations, Internet chat rooms — anything overseas that anyone can access, and contribute to, openly. Yes, they saw the uprising in Egypt coming; they just didn’t know exactly

when revolution might hit, says the center’s director, Doug Naquin. The center already had “predicted that social media in places like Egypt could be a game-changer and a threat to the regime,” he said in an interview. The CIA facility was set up in response to a recommendation by the 9/11 Commission, its first priority to focus on counterterrorism and counterproliferation. Its predecessor organization had its staff heavily cut in the 1990s — something the CIA’s management has vowed to keep from happening again, with new budget reductions looming across the national security spectrum. The center’s several hundred analysts — the actual number is classified — track a broad range of subjects, including Chinese Internet access and the mood on the street in Pakistan. While most analysts are based in Virginia, they also are scattered throughout U.S. embassies worldwide to get a step closer to their subjects. The center’s analysis ends up in President Barack Obama’s daily intelligence briefing in one form or another almost every day. The material is often used to answer questions Obama poses to his inner circle of intelligence advisers when they give him the morning rundown of threats and trouble spots. “The OSC’s focus is overseas, collecting against foreign intelligence issues,” said CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood. “Looking at social media outlets overseas is just a small part of what this skilled organization does,” she said. “There is no effort to collect on Americans.”

Yellowstone spill to cost Exxon $135M BY MATTHEW BROWN Associated Press BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Exxon Mobil Corp. said Friday it expects to incur costs of about $135 million from an oil pipeline break beneath Montana’s Yellowstone River that triggered a massive effort to limit damage to the scenic waterway. The cost figure was released in response to a request from The Associated Press and is more than triple an earlier estimate. It includes for the first time the expense of replacing the section of broken pipeline with a new one buried more deeply beneath the river. The company’s 20-year-old Silvertip crude oil pipeline broke July 1 during severe flooding. In the 56 minutes it took Exxon Mobil to seal off the 12inch line, an estimated 1,000 barrels of oil, or 42,000 gallons, poured into the river

near Laurel. That fouled dozens of miles of riverbank, numerous islands and swaths of low-lying cropland with crude. More than 1,000 workers were involved in the cleanup effort at its peak. Work to remove the damaged pipeline began Monday and is expected to take several weeks. An Exxon Mobil spokeswoman declined to release a breakdown of the company’s costs, providing only a broad overview of expenses. “This estimate includes costs for overall emergency response and cleanup efforts including personnel, equipment, landowner claims and projects associated with the restart of the pipeline such as the horizontal directional drill,” company spokeswoman Claire Hassett said. “Horizontal directional drill” refers to the process the company used to bore a new route for the pipeline dozens

of feet beneath the riverbed. That move was mandated by federal pipeline regulators. The original pipeline was buried only a few feet beneath the river. State and federal officials have speculated that summer flooding scoured the riverbed and left the pipe exposed to damaging debris and the force of the rushing river. An investigation into the cause remains pending. State officials said they hope to learn more when the first pieces of the damaged section of pipeline are pulled from the river, possibly this weekend. Those will be sent to an independent laboratory for analysis, according to state and federal officials and the company. An inspector from the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration will be on site throughout the removal process. The agency wants to make sure all evidence is preserved as part of the accident investigation,

spokesman Damon Hill said. Several property owners along the river have sued Exxon Mobil in federal court, accusing the company of damaging their land and conducting a “haphazard, sloppy” cleanup. The landowners also claim the company failed to heed warnings from local officials who raised concerns about Silvertip months before the accident. The lawsuit was originally filed in state court but was transferred last week to U.S. District Court in Billings. The case was assigned to Judge Richard Cebull. In a response filed Thursday, Exxon Mobil attorneys rejected many of the lawsuit’s assertions and suggested some of the injuries suffered by the plaintiffs were caused by their own negligence. Exxon Mobil’s Hassett said the company has reached settlements with 95 percent of affected property owners.

Homecoming royalty Nick Rutschilling, homecoming king, and Kristen Morris, queen, reign over the Versailles High School homecoming events recently. Nick is the son of Mark and Linda Rutschilling. Kristen is the daughter of Cynthia and the late Charles Morris.

Kiwanis Division 3 Lt. Gov. Richard Ulmes inducted new officers of the Sidney club Oct. 12. Ulmes first thanked outgoing board of directors members Phil Freytag, Ralph Prescott, Rick Rihm and Jake Romaker. He then inducted directors incoming Karen Tennery, Rick Lunsford, Bob Geuy and Bill Zimmerman. Installed as secretary and treasurer were Mike Tangeman and Ray Weber, respectively. Merrill Asher was inducted as vice president and Phil Warnecke as president-elect. Heather Pollard was inducted as club president. Outgoing President Tom Kinninger said that the biggest challenge facing the club was to get more good people in the club so that it can remain a vibrant asset to the community. Committee Chairmen

of the Year plaques was presented to DiAnne Karas and Freytag. Kinninger created a new award named the Century Award for Lifetime Achievement and presented the award to Don Fogt and Jim Brentlinger. Between the two, they have 100 years of perfect attendance, Fogt at 53 years and Brentlinger at 47. Finally, Kinninger presented the Kiwanian of the Year to Ray Weber. Pollard then presented Kinninger with a pastpresident’s plaque. Bob Parker, executive director of the Shelby County United Way, discussed the 2011 United Way campaign and its $1,300,000 goal as the guest speaker at another recent meeting. Parker discussed the impact that the Cornerstone Society has had on past campaigns. He said that last year there were

498 members and their contribution was 30 percent of the total amount raised. The Cornerstone Society comprises individuals, couples and family foundations who contribute $500 or more to the United Way’s annual campaign. The theme for this year’s campaign is Growing Together. Even with the challenges of the local economy, Parker said he was hopeful that this year’s goal would be met. Record levels of families and individuals continue to seek food, medical and utility assistance, he said. There are 26 agencies or programs that are recipients of United Way assistance. More than 22,000 people were helped last year. On average, Shelby County United Way agencies provided more than one service per

every two people. During the business portion of the meeting, President Heather Pollard called the meeting to order. The invocation was given by Phil Warnecke and the group was lead in song by Ralph Bornhorst, accompanied by DiAnne Karas on the piano. Rick Lunsford was the greeter. John Coffield led the fun and games activities. Club members had to guess the answers to 15 Halloween riddles. One example of the questions asked was “What happens to a ghost who gets lost in the fog? He’s mist.” The club’s annual spaghetti dinner will take place at Sidney High School Dec. 6. Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children under 12 and can be purchased from any club member.

to him by The Associated Press. “Our company treats all employees the same, regardless of their race, sex, or national origin,” the statement said. “Mr. Donatelli’s termination was based strictly on his inability to return to work within the time frame set forth by the law. We look forward to showing his allegations as baseless as this case moves forward.” The black employee is not identified in the lawsuit. Donatelli’s attorney, Samuel Cordes, said he’s not even sure the black man is aware of the controversy. “The facts in our case will bear it out: This is a pattern,” Cordes said, adding that he’s fielded similar complaints from other Covelli Panera employees in the area but never before sued as a result. Donatelli, 49, said he was hired as an assistant manager of the store in the upscale suburb of Mount Lebanon in March 2007 and became its general manager in August 2010. That summer, Donatelli said, the district manager exclaimed, “What is that?” when he saw the black employee walk in to start his shift. “Sam would (expletive) if he got a look at that,” the district manager said, according to Donatelli. Over the course of several months, Donatelli contends, the district manager repeatedly chastised him for letting

the black man work the cash register and interact with customers even though he was “one of the better employees with a great work ethic, attitude and willingness to do whatever is asked of him.” Donatelli said the district manager told him the black employee’s work abilities “won’t matter to Sam” and said, “You know, that is a death sentence for me and you if Sam would walk in and see him on register.” The lawsuit acknowledges that Donatelli took medical leave for his surgeries from June 7 to Sept. 7, when he got a return to work prescription from his doctor. Donatelli said that he was informed Sept. 7 that he was being replaced as general manager and that when he worked the next day he realized he wasn’t fully healed and needed another month off. Instead, Donatelli got a letter saying he was fired for exhausting his time off under the federal Family & Medical Leave Act, the lawsuit said. The U.S. Department of Labor’s website says the act entitles eligible employees to take up to 12 workweeks of “unpaid, job-protected leave” within any 12month period.

Fantasy glass bowls imported by Libbey Glass Inc., of Toledo, have been recalled.

when people attempt to collect unemployment benefits while they are working or after they return to work. ODJFS pursues criminal prosecution against anyone who flagrantly commits fraud. Those found guilty of fraud face probation or jail time, must repay the improperly obtained funds with interest, and may have future unemployment benefits withheld. In 2010, more than 150 individuals in Ohio were found guilty of unemployment theft or similar charges. In addition to the “REPORT FRAUD” link at, Ohioans also can report possible fraud via mail to Benefit Payment Control, P.O. Box 1618, Columbus, OH 432191618; email to;, fax to (614) 752-4808; or by calling the toll-free fraud hotline at (800) 6861555.

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) is making it easier than ever to report suspected unemployment fraud by allowing anyone to report fraud online, instantly and anonymously. “This is the latest tool in an arsenal of methods Ohioans can use to report possible unemployment fraud,” said ODJFS Director Michael Colbert. “Committing unemployment compensation fraud is a serious offense, which the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services does not tolerate.” Ohioans who suspect fraud are urged to go to https://unemployment.o and click on “REPORT FRAUD.” Last year, ODJFS disbursed more than $5 billion in state and federal unemployment compensation. In the last 12 months, the agency identified more than $31 million in fraudulent, overpaid benefits. In most cases, fraud occurs



PITTSBURGH (AP) — A white man claims he was fired as manager of a suburban Panera Bread shop for repeatedly having a black man work the cash register instead of putting him in a less visible location and having “pretty young girls” be the cashiers. Scott Donatelli contends in a federal lawsuit he was denied extra medical leave and was fired in September after double hip replacement surgery earlier this year. He claims the reason was that he bucked racerelated personnel rules communicated to him by a district manager for Sam Covelli, a franchisee based in Warren, Ohio, about 80 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. Earlier this year, Donatelli says, the district manager told him, “It’s what Sam wants and what our customers want. They would rather see pretty young girls” at the cash register.

The district manager also “told Donatelli he did not want African Americans working where the public could see them because: ‘it’s what the customers want,’” according to the eight-page complaint filed late Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh. Donatelli is seeking back pay, reinstatement and damages. His complaint names only Covelli Enterprises as a defendant. According to its website, Covelli is the fifth-largest restaurant franchisee in the country and develops and manages the franchise rights of nearly 200 Panera cafes in northeast Ohio, western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and West Palm Beach, Fla. St. Louis-based Panera Bread Co., which offers freshly baked bread, sandwiches and soups in a sit-down setting for slightly higher prices than those at most fastfood chains, says on its website it has about 1,500 company-owned and franchise-operated bakery-cafes in 40 states and in Ontario, Canada, under the Panera Bread, Saint Louis Bread Co. and Paradise Bakery & Cafe names. A company spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday. Covelli spokesman Allen Ryan issued a oneparagraph statement saying the Ohio company “vigorously denies the allegations” in a copy of the lawsuit e-mailed

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be careful, because your routine definitely will be interrupted today. Guard against accidents and impulsive actions. Don’t just shoot from the hip. Cool your jets. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Even if you can’t quite put your finger on it, you know that today you feel restless, and a bit nervous, for some reason. Possibly, hidden secrets will come out. This is a short-lived feeling — so easy does it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A friend will surprise you today. Alternatively, you might meet someone who is unusual or unorthodox. Quite likely, this encounter will be in a group situation or via an introduction by a friend. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs will surprise you today for some reason. They might even be annoyed. Don’t quit your day job. Guard against knee-jerk reactions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel plans will be canceled or delayed today. Similarly, anything having to do with school and higher education will need to be rescheduled. People from other cultures might surprise you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Make friends with your bank account today. Anything having to do with shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt might be shaky and full of pitfalls. Be aware of this, and keep your eyes open. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Monday, Nov. 7, 2011 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be aware of what your children are doing today, because things are confused. In fact, misadventure with bad food, poisons or liquids is a strong possibility. Keep your eyes open. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Don’t be aggressive about getting your way at home or with family discussions. You might find later that you were backing the wrong horse. Be aware of this. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Avoid arguments with others today, especially siblings and neighbors. (You know you really don’t believe in what you’re fighting for right now.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Financial matters are fuzzy today! Be careful when spending money. Be careful even how you earn your money. Some kind of deception is likely, so don’t get caught by it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It’s hard to get your point across to others today, because you feel encumbered by fatigue or confusion. Just let things go. This is not the day to take a stand about anything. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Secret activities might be exposed today (including secret love affairs). Be aware of this. Who wants to get busted? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with others, especially in group situations, are a bit tricky today. If you think someone is not being straight with you, trust your gut instincts.

Friends and partners might be rebellious today. Perhaps they want more space or more freedom? Be ready to compromise. (Patience is your best friend today.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your work or job will be interrupted by computer crashes, power outages, equipment failures, staff shortages or canceled appointments. Just cope as best you can. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is an accident-prone day for your children or for children in your care. Therefore, be extra vigilant! (It’s a rocky day for romance as well.) Social plans might be canceled. This is an accident-prone day for sports. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Unexpected guests might drop by at home today. Small appliances could break down. Minor breakages and glitches with technology are likely. Be patient with family members. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Tread carefully, because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. Be extra aware of everything you say or do. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might find money today; you might lose money. Guard your possessions against loss or theft. It’s a crapshoot! YOU BORN TODAY People like you because you are well-rounded, enthusiastic and fun to be around. You have a positive take on life. You’re also energetic about whatever you do. Many of you will learn a particular technique. All of you know how to please others and make them happy. Work hard to build or construct something this year, because your rewards will soon follow.

Domestic violence awareness Minster High School students plant a tree recently as part of a ceremony in front of their school to bring attention to domestic violence. The event was part of a program on domestic violence awareness conducted at several schools by the Auglaize County Crisis Center.

Council OKs mutual aid fire contract MINSTER — Minster Village Council Tuesday gave first reading to an ordinance authorizing a 2012 mutual aid contract with the Loramie Fire District at a cost of $12,579. Also adopted, after discussion of the closed alley behind the old elementary school and St. Augustine Church, was a motion for the alley to remain closed. Don Harrod, village administrator, reported Brumbaugh Construction continues to install the storm sewer as part of Fourth Street reconstruction. All laterals have been tied into the manhole at Fourth and Hanover streets and a portion of the 24-inch storm sewer line going east on Fourth Street has been laid. Storm sewer work will continue to the alley west of the post office where a new sanitary sewer line will be installed across Fourth Street. Once the sanitary line is completed, the storm sewer will be extended eastward. Harrod also reported

Peterson Construction continues to make progress at the wastewater facility, currently setting block for walls of the operations building. He said roof work may begin this week. At the head-works building, walls are being formed and poured with under slab drains and piping being installed. Next, workers will begin to pour base slabs for the building and the last of the walls for the oxidation ditch. Invoices totaling $884,268.03 were approved for payment. At its October meeting, council adopted ordinances narrowing a portion of a north-south alley between Lincoln Drive and Main Street, Fourth and Fifth streets and granted Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio the village’s gas franchise during its October meeting. Harrod reported CLT Engineering and village personnel are starting cleanup work at the former Minster Oil site and that remedial activities should take two or

three days to complete. The project entails removal of an underground storage tank and contaminated soil. He told council Brumbaugh Construction has started work on Part B of the first phase of the Fourth Street project, including storm sewer installation, sanitary crossings and communication lines. Harrod said the Electric Department has removed a faulty distribution feed wire from the north substation. Crews, assisted by Vaughn Electric, pulled all of the replacement wire and only have to make terminations. Peterson Construction continues to make progress at the wastewater facility, pouring concrete for walls in the oxidation ditch and footers for the headworks building. Block is also being laid for the operations building, Harrod said. Invoices totaling $970,482 for the month were approved for payment.

Minster Zoning Board to consider four variances MINSTER — The Minster Zoning Board of Appeals will hear four requests for zoning variances when it meets Tuesday at 7 p.m. Minster Local Schools Athletic Boosters are requesting a variance to erect a 99-square-foot ground sign on school property east of the football field. An 84-squarefoot variance is required. Theodore and Maria

Oldiges have requested a variance to erect a 14-by24-foot accessory building on a 26-by-69-foot lot adjacent to and east of the canal. The building would be located 6.5 feet off east and west property lines. The zoning code setbacks are 7.5 feet, requiring a 1-foot variance. Marc Kogge has requested a variance from the required setback for

an existing garage on property at 10 N. Lincoln Drive that is not in compliance with code. A variance of 3 feet is necessary. The board will also consider a request by Lois Wimmer for a variance from the required two-per-dwelling offstreet parking requirements for property at 642 E. Third St. so a second residence on the property can be rented.

NEW BREMEN — During a special meeting Monday, New Bremen Village Council suspended the rule to authorize application for a zero-interest loan to finance the South MainFranklin Street sanitary sewer project. The cost of the project is $98,923 and the loan is Auglaize County Issue I funding to be repaid over a period of 20 years or sooner. The project is located in the alley on the south side of the Crown Education Center, between Main and Franklin streets. Once again suspending the three-reading rule, council also authorized the purchase of a 2012 Ford F-450 fourwheel-drive chassis/cab truck from dump Reineke Lincoln-Ford in Findlay for $37,123 after trade-in of a 2001 truck valued at $7,377. The meeting included an executive session to discuss pending litigation. No action was taken prior to adjournment.

At its earlier meeting, council suspended the three-reading rule and adopted an ordinance transferring Lot 21 in the Bunker Hill Industrial Park to the Community Improvement Corp. for economic development. The land has been deemed no longer useful to the village. Earlier, council accepted the plat creating Lot 21 in the industrial park’s Eighth Addition. Following a third reading, council adopted a resolution of necessity for First Street reconstruction between Ohio 66 and the alley east of Jefferson Street and for Washington Street reconstruction between First and Monroe streets. First readings were given resolutions authorizing the village to enter into an income tax agreement with the New Bremen Local School District for a real property tax exemption of 75 percent for 15 years and a community reinvestment area agreement

with the village for Brookside Laboratories Inc. Kristin Hough and Kathy Trejo, representing the New BremenNew Knoxville Rotary Club, updated council on Park’s Sunshine progress. They reported the project is ahead of schedule and under budget and will be purchasing playground equipment. Council also discussed the stone parking lot next to the project and said it will review different options. Mayor Jeff Pape announced Tri-Star, St. Marys will be sponsoring a Nov. 14 event from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to fill jobs in the area by educating workers about training in some of the high-demand fields. He also updated council on various village projects. Council also authorized the village administrator to seek bids for a 2011 Ford F-450 dump truck. Total expenditures of $743,428.31 were approved for payment.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, November 5, 2011

CLINTON Deerhunters, Newport Sportsmen’s Club IUTIS Kid’s Softball Club, Right to Life and is active in church and has taught Sunday School. Gaier and his wife, Carol, 1890 Riverside Drive, have been married for 40 years and have one daughter who is married and two grandsons. He is a 1967 graduate of Holy Angels High School and graduated from ITT Technical Institute in 1969. He has worked in local industry for 25 years and is now self employed in the construction industry. Gaier is a member of Holy Angels Catholic Church, is a member of the Knights of Columbus, the National Rifle Association, an Ohio Township Association associate member, the Elks and the Moose Lodge. The candidates answered a series of questions posed by the Sidney Daily News as follows: Why do you feel you are the best choice for trustee? Joslin: Experience. Township residents have elected me for two terms as Clinton Township Trustee. Prior to serving as a trustee, I chaired the Clinton Township Zoning Board for 16 years and served as Clinton Township zoning administrator. Mariano: I have a good number of years of experience in serving the public and in keeping the public trust. I’m the guy that’s available to answer your questions and help solve the issues at hand. Gaier: My past experience in industry with responsibilities for costs of manufactured products and now owning my own business, I feel I can get the best services at the best price for the township. I am downsizing my business, so that the trustee position will be my major function, not secondary. I will have and will use whatever time is required for the position. I pride myself as being a problem solver after analyzing all situations and options available. What qualifications would you bring to the job? Joslin: I believe I have a complete understanding of the township and issues. I was born and raised in Clinton Township, and it is my home. We all want to keep our home desirable and attractive. As stated above, I understand zoning, which clearly affects our citizens. In addition, as a farmer, the combination of running a successful small business

BOE plans work session The Sidney Board of Education will have a work session on Monday at 6 p.m. at Sidney High School. The board will be discussing marketing Sidney City Schools and will hear the first reading on new policies. The board will be meeting in executive session to consider the employment of personnel.

coupled with practical equipment understanding, will serve our township. I know how to operate and maintain township important equipment, often needed in critical situations such as snow emergencies. Mariano: I bring a lot to the table, if a good track record means anything to you. My experience in serving the public on city council for 12 years and as mayor three terms plus serving on many boards and committees during that time, has helped me to gain good knowledge and understanding of how things work and how to get things done right. I’ve always served with honesty, integrity and accountability. Gaier: My past work history and ability to solve problems. Being on several boards working with other members to resolve issues. I have also attended all but three of the Clinton Township Trustee meetings since December of 2009 as I chose to be aware of the workings of the township. What are the issues and problems you see in Clinton Township and how do you propose they be resolved? Joslin: Clinton Township is a great place to live. One commitment I made during the last campaign was to seek improvement in subdivision Stephens drainage. Working collaboratively with the Shelby County Engineer and Commissioners, our township addressed and funded a significant drainage improvement in the subdivision. That is an example of how I believe problems should be addressed, listen to all concerned, work positively will all parties developing a plan and work for plan implementation. Mariano: The basic issue is the same as it is with any government entity and that is how to get the most bang for the buck when dealing with taxpayer dollars. Any project involving tax dollars always needs to be discussed and understood thoroughly, the need justified and the cost verified before it is given any priority for the money to be spent. I have always dealt with the issues using a conservative and common sense approach. Gaier: The issues for the township are maintaining the roads and right-of-ways. Loss of funds from the state, the

From Page 1 loss of the estate tax at the end of 2012 and the future annexation of the township to Sidney. As for the roads, we have a very capable road superintendent, and I will work with him to keep the equipment in shape and get the best possible contracts, both cost and quality as needed. On the loss of revenue, I will work hard to reduce costs and try to keep the same quality of services now being provided to the citizens. On the annexation, this will continue to happen. I’m prepared to help in the transition and will strive to make it as orderly as possible so that it is beneficial to all. What are your goals to improve Clinton Township? Joslin: Clinton Township must always serve our citizens. In addition, Clinton must be a good neighbor with other governing bodies. This is a tough financial time right now, and I commit to an efficient, collaborative approach to our township needs. Mariano: First, to get a good understanding of the actual budget and then work to find areas to make improvements. Work to improve the communication between the township and the other entities they deal with, such as the health department, the Planning and Zoning Commission, and the residents. Gaier: My goal is to provide the lowest cost, best available services to the township. I will be available and responsive to all concerns that citizens might have. I will secure orderly and responsible annexation. I will do my best to provide the services that we currently have with less money in the future. Is there anything else you want to share about your candidacy? Joslin: My service to our community goes beyond township government. When asked, I was United Way worker, 20year 4-H adviser, Extension Advisory and others. To ensure Clinton Township and the Sidney community continues as a desirable home, we must keep our focus on service to our taxpayers and citizens. Mariano: I’m running for Clinton Township to serve you, the residents of the township. I have nothing to prove except that I can serve you well. If given the opportunity, I will serve you well.


Brady Bill The changed the Gun Control Act of 1968 and required all chief law enforcement officers to run background checks on anyone buying handguns locally. Mack said it was federal officials who came and told a group of sheriffs what the Brady Bill required them to do that made him decide to take action. “They passed out a document … this spells out what you have to do. I drove home and by the time I got there, I said ‘I’m suing.’ The thing that scared me more than suing Clinton,” Mack said to the amusement of the crowd, “was telling my wife.” Mack said when he told his wife he was going to sue the president and the U.S. government, she responded, “we weren’t really looking for a job when you landed this one. Maybe this is why you were supposed to be sheriff.” “Our county (in Arizona) is 35,000 people. I never thought this was going to go anywhere,” Mack said. The sheriff spoke to what he described as the “undersheriff ” in his office and told him the plan. The undersheriff was a National Rifle Association (NRA) member, Mack was not. Mack got in touch with NRA official Richard Gardner and told him about his lawsuit. He said Gardner responded that the NRA was already working on the issue and told him, “‘Sheriff, we’ve been preparing the paperwork on this case, we’ve been praying you would call.” The NRA was preparing a Tenth Amendment challenge to the Brady Bill. Federal District Judge John M. Roll heard the case initially. “I owe Judge Roll a lot. He was probably the most constitutional judge in United States history.” Mack noted that Roll was killed in Tucson earlier this year in the same attack that wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. It was Roll, Mack said, who upheld the lawsuit, writing in his decision, “Mack is thus forced to choose between keeping his oath or obeying the act, subjecting himself to possible sanctions.” After two circuit courts had conflicting opinions in the case, Mack and Printz’s lawsuit landed in U.S. Supreme Court, where the Supreme Court ruled the Brady Bill was unconstitutional. Mack has little hope for Washington, D.C. “They don’t follow the Constitution.

State sovereignty. That’s the solution.” “Gun control in the United States of America is against the law,” Mack said. “I still have that right. It’s called self preservation … nothing supercedes the Constitution.” Speaking about the Bill of Rights, Mack said, “don’t you wish we had cops who were as picky about the Bill of Rights as we are about traffic (laws)?” He reminded the crowd that sheriffs and other public officials must take an oath, swearing to uphold the Constitution. “Your sheriff works for the executive branch,” Mack said. “We can tell (legislators) no.” Mack gave an example, talking about Cook County, Ill., Sheriff Tom Dart. Mack said Dart told judges, “‘I’m not serving your foreclosures any more. I’m sick and tired of doing this to people. ” He noted Dart was re-elected “in a landslide.” Mack said “other sheriffs are protecting their citizens from the federal government; that’s their job.” He noted Thomas Jefferson and his Kentucky Resolution and James Madison and his efforts in Virginia in the 1700s worked then to keep government from “victimizing the people.” Speaking of civil rights activist Rosa Parks, Mack said, “a peace officer or sheriff should have made sure she could have gotten home safely that night,” a reference to Parks being arrested after refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white person. Mack said it was interesting that Parks was later given an award by the U.S. Government by people who supported the laws that got her arrested. Mack has also become an advocate for the Amish and said the U.S. government is “sending in SWAT teams to destroy raw milk” belonging to the Amish so they cannot sell or use it, because it isn’t pasteurized. Mack protested the milk being destroyed by drinking it at Wisconsin’s state capitol and drank it again at the recent Kentucky Sheriff ’s Association. “I drank it in front of all of those sheriffs. It’s against the law to drink raw milk in Kentucky. It tastes better than store milk. It’s got all the vitamins.” “This is not a call to arms, this is a call to do the right thing,” Mack said about his efforts. He believes county commissioners and other officials need to join his efforts. Mack wants to “train constitutional sheriffs” and is planning a program in which he hopes to train 150-200 sheriffs

at a cost of about $1,000 each. He is hoping that through donations to his program they will not have to pay to attend. “Legislators are not subject to federal direction, that even includes school boards — from your dog catcher all the way down to the president,” Mack said. Mack said people are no longer able to use words such as “endowed creator,” noting that is “against the law” in schools. If Ohio was sovereign, Mack said, the state could take care of it’s own health care, children and other issues and would not need the federal government. However, Mack does not believe that is how things are today. “We are not a democracy — anyone who tells you that is either a dummy or a liar. Our duty is to stop the incursion of the government.” “Who is supposed to enforce states’ rights? State sovereignty is enforced in your state,” Mack said. “We have to have local officials who have the guts to keep their oath,” he stated, noting he will be asking sheriffs across the country to take a stand. “I really do believe in principles — freedom for all Americans (one exception, you have to be here legally). Ohio should be run by Buckeyes; we want you to be free,” Mack said. Mack now travels across the country teaching about constitutional rights. He has written books, including, “The County Sheriff: The Last Hope for America” and has other publications. Those interested in learning more about Mack can go to his website or they can write to him at After Mack’s presentation, winners of a raffle for a pistol and shotgun were announced. The raffle proceeds helped bring Mack to Sidney. Jeff Billiel was the winner of a Ruger P95 9mm pistol and Paul Shannon won a Mossberg 500 12gauge shotgun with combination barrels. Mark and Dawn Foor of New Hampshire, Ohio, were winners of a handpainted three-gallon stoneware jug made in Crooksville especially for the Liberty Group. While the SidneyShelby County Liberty Group will not be meeting again until next year, member H.R. Pence said the organization is looking for people to help walk the precincts in Tuesday’s election to help distribute literature. Those interested may call her at (937) 773-6280.

The third ordinance appropriates $11,750 to the electric operating fund for the purchase of a wood chipper and $2,100 and $750 to the police enforcement fund for the hiring process and uniform allowance of a police officer. An ordinance providing for employment of legal council for the village was given its first reading. Resolutions adopted authorize the administrator to accept the donation of property at 607 E. Pike St. from Holloway Sportwear Inc., and authorize the disposal of surplus miscellaneous village-owned equipment at auction.

Surplus items include swimming pool equipment, generators, assorted meters and an office jet printer. Council members also approved and signed letters to Sen. Keith Faber and Rep. John Adams opposing House Bill 153 which would authorize the Ohio Department of Taxation to take over collection of municipal income taxes. Council also signed a letter urging Verizon Wireless to begin sooner the construction of a planned tower in Jackson Center. Council also discussed a trash contract and held an executive session to discuss pending litigation.

Election Day, Nov. 8, 2011

Renewal sought for 3 contend for 2 mental health levy school board seats The Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health Services seeks a renewal of its 0.6 mill operating levy in Tuesday’s election. The board serves Shelby, Miami and Darke counties with counseling, 24-hour crisis services, housing, education, advocacy and suicide-prevention programming and criminal justice programs. Voters in the three counties have continuosly voted to fund it since 1973. In Shelby County, the board supports the new Shelby County Counseling Center, SafeHaven Inc. and Shelby County Recovery Inc., and other programs. The levy will cost the owoner of $100,000 approximately home $15.60 per year. “Through support of the local levy, no one is

ever denied services because of inability to pay,” said Mark McDaniel, director of the organization. “The levy also provides matching funds necessary to obtain federal and state funds for the system.” State funding, however, has been cut by $3 million over the last three years. Therefore, the levy income comprises 23 percent of TriCounty’s not quite $10 million operating budget. “We have had to lean a lot more heavily on the levy,” McDaniel said. “The $3 million cut is more than the levy even brings in.” There has been no increase in the levy since 2002, when valuations were raised for a replacement levy. The levy rate has not changed since the mid-1970s when it was increased

from 0.4 mills to 0.6 mills. McDaniel is hopeful that voters will again support the Tri-County Board. In his campaigning for its passage throughout the three counties, he has heard almost totally positive feedback. Should it not pass, the board would be forced to cut services. “We’d have to take a look at all the optional services we offer first,” McDaniel said. Those include crisis intervention training for law enforcement personnel, housing, and medication, among others. “Then we’d have to look at core programs: counseling, doctors, case management,” he said. “I would hope that people would pass the levy and we won’t have to do that.”

Two vie for trustee position An incumbent and former trustee are vying for the one trustee seat available in Washington Township during Tuesday’s election. Incumbent Douglas K. Stangel, 9501 Stangel Road, has served the township for 16 years as trustee. A retired farmer, Stangel is a graduate of Houston High School. Stangel and his wife, Glenda, have three children, Jason, Gina and Jerrid, and six grandchildren. He had also served the township on the zoning board for 10 years. Rick Dulin, 2576 Lindsey Road, has served the township as trustee during two different times. He served as trustee from 1996 to 2000 and again from 2002 to 2010. Dulin and his wife, Catherine, have two sons, Jason and Joseph, a daughter-inlaw, Tava, and three grandchildren. Dulin has been employed with the Shelby County Highway Department for 24 years. He had also been employed by B&G Bitumi-



nous for 11 years. “I enjoy taking care of the township,” said Stangel of his decision to seek re-election to office. The priorities he sees for the trustees is resurfacing the township roads. “We need to keep up the roads,” said Stangel. “We do them as needed and that is determined by the three trustees.” Dulin said he was approached by several people and asked to seek the trustee office again. “I have a lot of road experience,” said Dulin, of his 35 years in road construction. Dulin said the budget of the township concerns him. “With the economy the way it is, the budget has to be a priority. We

need better preplanning for the repair of the roads and the maintenance of them.” Dulin said, if elected, he would like to see some reorganizing for better scheduling of repairs of the roads and to provide service to the people’s needs in the township. “The township is doing good right now,” said Dulin. “I think some things need to be addressed to make it better for the people. I don’t think the roadwork is not being done in a timely manner. There is room for improvement in getting the road conditions in better shape for the public.” Stangel, when asked, said he didn’t have any longterm goals for the township. In addition to the trustee race, voters in the township will be voting for a fiscal officer. Incumbent Glenda J. Stangel, 9501 Stangel Road, is unopposed in the election. She has served the township a total of 20 years as fiscal officer.

VERSAILLES — Three candidates are vying for two places on the Versailles Board of Education and several citizens face competition for various township spots. Others running for Versailles Village Council and additional township positions are unopposed. Angie Bruns and Cheryl Gehret, both of Versailles, would like to unseat incumbent Gwenn Barga, of New Weston, who is running for re-election to the board of education. Barga has served two four-year terms. “I’ve got eight years of experience now,” she said. “We’ve gone through the building project and hired administrators and coaches. I’ve got the experience for the job. I’m a thirdgeneration board member, so I knew what I was getting into when I ran initially. My dad and grandfather were both on the board.” Her goals for another term: “We’ve got to balance our budget at some point in time,” she said. Bruns said she is running because, “I really care about the community and a successful school system is a part of that. If I’m elected, I intend to work with the current board and superintendent to get our school district back on firm financial footing, while at the same time,



continuing to improve the eduction of our students here at Versailles.” Gehret, too, is running because she’s concerned about the financial position of the district. “Until I know what funds are available and where they are being spent, it is hard to pinpoint what could be changed to improve that situation,” she said. “One thing I do hope to provide is the perspective of a working mother when making decisions regarding policies that affect the school district as a whole.” Incumbent councilman and mayor Jeffrey R. Subler and incumbent Todd councilman Dammeyer are unopposed for re-election. The township races involving Versailles residents include those for township trustees and for township fiscal officer as follows: Patterson Township: Incumbent Samuel F. Pohlman, of Yorkshire, is unopposed for trustee. Bill Broering, of YorkKathleen M. shire,


Grieshop, of Versailles, and Daniel Mescher, of Osgood, vie for fiscal officer. Richland Township: Dan J. Hart, of Versailles, faces incumbent Bruce Knick, of Ansonia, for election as a trustee. Kay Nance, of Versailles, and Dorothy Pope-Goodpaster, of Greenville, vie for fiscal officer. Wabash Township: Wade A. Barga, of Rossburg, faces incumbent Larry Bubeck, of Versailles, for election as trustee. Incumbent Ann M. Stammen, of New Weston, is unopposed for fiscal officer. Wayne Township: Incumbent Michael J. Lawrence, of Versailles, is unopposed for re-election as trustee. Incumbent Teresa M. Slonkosky, of Versailles, is unopposed for re-election as fiscal officer. York Township: Incumbent James Zumbrink, of Rossburg, is unopposed for re-election as trustee. Incumbent Alan J. Stammen, of Versailles, is unopposed for re-election as fiscal officer.

2 former trustees seek seat to be vacated JACKSON CENTER — Two former Jackson Township trustees are vying for the position again in Tuesday’s election, as the incumbent is not seeking re-election. Robert “Bob” Zorn, 20481 Linker Road, served three terms previously as a trustee. He works at EMI Corp. as well as on his father’s farm. He and wife Shelly are the parents of two grown daughters, Shannon and Meghan. Zorn said he is running again because he always enjoyed taking care of township business and serving the public. He said he wishes to provide the service residents count on, such as clearing snow and maintaining the roads in general and in a safe fashion. Zorn is a past president of the Shelby County Trustees and Clerks Association.



The other candidate, Larry Sprague, previously served for 20 years. He resides at 22201 Linker Road and is a full-time grain farmer. Sprague said he decided to run because he enjoys working with people and addressing their needs. He has long been active in a number of volunteer organizations, such as the reserve auxiliary of the Shelby County Sheriff ’s Office, the Jackson Center Fire Department and as a volunteer for the Jackson Center Police Department. He describes himself as civic-minded.

Sprague said he feels that township projects he worked on, such as the salt storage structure, were done well and that good working relationships were established with school officials regarding roads. Sprague adds that his schedule is flexible and that it would be “a privilege” to serve again. Diane Frank, 21471 Wise Road, will serve another term as fiscal officer for the township as she is running unopposed. She has served in that position for four terms. She also works in the office of the Shelby County Prosecuting Attorney in Sidney. Frank is seeking another term because she said she enjoys the work and being a public servant. She adds that she enjoys assisting the township with a variety of issues, and likes to work with local government.

Redskins host CCD tonight Minster travels to Springfield for rematch with Irish BY KEN BARHORST FORT LORAMIE — Fort Loramie football coach Matt Burgbacher is hoping the community can put last week’s game behind them. That sounds like he wants them to forget a loss, but that’s not the case at all. For the first time since football came to Fort Loramie, the Redskins beat their No. 1 rival, Lehman, in the regular season finale last week. And Burgbacher says the excitement hasn’t worn off. “Everybody is still a little bit excited about it,” he said. “They’re still pumped up about Friday’s victory. That meant a lot to the community. I know Lehman was young this year, but still, to get that first win over them was important. “That’s a very big rivalry game for us now,” Burgbacher went on. “Not only to the community, but to former players and coaches that were here. Nobody had beaten them, and

I talked to a couple of guys who played against them and they were excited.” And since the two will go together into the Northwest Central Conference starting next season, the rivalry won’t diminish any time soon. But that game is now in the past, and Burgbacher has been busy preparing his squad for another postseason game, the fifth in Burgbacher’s three years at the helm. The Redskins, 9-1, take on 7-3 Cincinnati Country Day tonight at 7 p.m. on their home field. A win could set up a rematch with backyard rival Minster, which handed Loramie its only setback of the season in the very first game. Fort Loramie finished second in the final Region 24 rankings of Division VI, and that paired the Redskins up with Country Day. The Indians’ three losses were to 7-3 Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, 8-2 North College Hill and 7-3 Summit Country Day.

All three teams are in the playoffs, Summit in D-V and North College Hill and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy in D-IV. In week nine, Country day beat Lockland 41-35. Lockland plays at Marion Local Saturday in first-round action, and is the only team with a winning record that Country Day has beaten this season. “Country Day runs a similar offense to ours, the WingT, but they do some things differently. And they run the same defense, too. We told the kids it will be a battle of the 50 defense and the Wing-T. Whoever does it best will come out with a win,” said Burgbacher. “They’ve got some athletes on their team,” he added. “They have a big fullback, and excellent size on the offensive line. It will be a challenge for our defense, but I think they’re up to it. They’re excited to be playing somebody we’ve never played before.” • Minster will take its 7-3

mark and a boatload of momentum into action tonight at Springfield Catholic. The Wildcats were on the fence as to whether they could make it to postseason, but their big win at home over Coldwater nailed down the sixth spot and put them up against Springfield Catholic for the second year in a row. Last year, Springfield Catholic was No. 1 in the region at 9-1 and Minster No. 8 at 5-5. But the Wildcats went to Springfield and crushed the Irish 44-21, flexing their MAC muscles.

MITCHELL CAMPBELL (26) of Versailles puts the finishing touches on this sack of the West Liberty-Salem quarterback in Division V playoff action Friday night. The Tigers cruised to a 4821 victory. On the bottom of the pile is VersaIlles’ William Borchers.

Versailles wins big 48-21 WEST LIBERTY — Despite the game pitting a No. 8 seed against the No. 1 seed, the No. 8, Versailles, was considered the favorite, coming from the Midwest Athletic Conference. And that’s how it went, the Tigers dominating West Lib-

erty to the tune of 48-21 in first-round Division V football playoff action here Friday night. The win likely puts the Tigers opposite another MAC power in Coldwater next Friday in the regional semifinals.

Coldwater was another MAC team to beat a previously undefeated team, routing Covington Friday night 31-7. The victory put the Tigers at 9-2 on the year. The loss was the first of the season for West Liberty.

Browns’ Hillis injured again BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Peyton Hillis burst through the line and pulled up suddenly after apparently hurting himself again. As his teammates looked on, Hillis slammed the ball to the ground and flung his orange helmet away in disgust. A miserable, misguided season had taken another bizarre twist. Hillis re-injured his left hamstring during practice on

Friday, the latest moment of drama for the Browns bruising back whose second year with Cleveland has been one misadventure after the next. Hillis, who has missed Cleveland's past two games with the injury, will likely sit out Sunday's game at Houston — yet another setback for the 25-year-old, who rushed for nearly 1,200 yards last season, endeared himself to

Cleveland fans with his bulldozing style. Hillis had only returned to practice Thursday for the first time since last week. The Browns (3-4) had hoped he would be back to face the Texans and their No. 3 ranked defense. But it appears Hillis, who has rushed for only 211 yards amid weeks of distractions this season, will have to sit out another game.

Not that there was any doubt that he would make the team, but S i d n e y High senior b o w l e r T r e n t Knoop apparently didn’t want to take any chances Friday at BelMar Lanes Knoop during the first day of tryouts for this year’s squad. Knoop and the rest of the Yellow Jacket hopefuls were asked to bowl two or three games by coach Angie Mentges. On Knoop’s first game, on lane 7, he rolled his second 300 of the year, the other coming earlier this fall in the Saturday morning youth league at Bel-Mar. “All his shots were in the pocket except for the 10th and 11th strikes, and those were just slightly high, but still good shots,” said Mentges. It was Knoop’s third perfect game in all, the first one coming in the fall of 2010. “It was a little nervous on my last ball, but not a lot,” said Knoop, a two-time state qualifier. “Trent did some additional work on his game over the summer and it has obviously paid off,” said Mentges. “Bowling three 300s would give anyone a huge boost of confidence. And starting the first day of tryouts with a 300 game is an exciting way to start the season.” Sidney’s first match of the season is on Dec. 6.

Edwards 7th FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Carl Edwards isn't going to have to look far to find out where Tony Stewart is at the start Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. Edwards, whose NASCAR Sprint Cup lead is a mere eight points with three races left, will be starting directly behind his closest chaser. "Five hundred miles, we'll see what happens," Edwards said after qualifying seventh Friday. Stewart will start fifth, in the row ahead of Edwards.

BY ROB KISER Ohio Community Media It is a rare situation when the Lehman Catholic volleyball team is an underdog to anyone. B u t Lehman coach Greg Snipes understands Snipes that’s the role the Lady Cavaliers find themselves in in today’s D-IV regional final with St. Henry. The Lady Redskins are 25-1, their only loss being to Miami East, and ranked No. 1 in the state, while Lehman, the defending state champion, is 24-3 and ranked No. 2 in the state. And in the regular season meeting back in September, St. Henry prevailed 25-15, 25-16, 25-21. “I think they have to be considered the favorite,” Snipes said. “They won the regular season match and haven’t lost to a Division IV school all year.” So, Snipes wouldn’t mind a little deja vu. Last year Marion Local was the three-time defending state champion and had beaten Lehman during the regular season — only to see Lehman shock them in three games in the regional final on the way to the program’s third state title. “That would be great if we were able to play a match like that again,” Snipes said. “Our girls seem to have that ability (to raise their game in big matches).” But he knows a win today will not come easily. “There is no question, they (St. Henry) are a very good team,” Snipes said. “They have some size, but really, they are a very well-balanced team. They have a lot of girls back from last year.” At the same time, he said his team has something to prove. “I think the coaches and the players both felt like we didn’t play our best volleyball that night,” he said. “Now, we

have a chance to show that.” The Lady Cavaliers also have the ability to mix things up. Five different players have at least 120 kills. Middles Ellie Waldsmith (197 kills, 68 blocks, 201 digs) and Paxton Hatcher (123 kills, 45 blocks) are a solid combo, while Morgan Schmitmeyer (197 kills), Lindsey Spearman (132 kills, 63 aces) and Andrea Thobe (189 kills, 471 assists, 44 aces) are all dangerous hitters from the outside. Thobe and Cain (383 assists, 60 aces) give Lehman a strong setting combo and Cain can also be a weapon the right side. Libero Erica Paulus (354 digs) and defensive specialist Meghan Earhart (198) anchor the back row. “We want to be able to spread things around,” Snipes said. “That will be a key for us.” And the Lady Cavaliers aren’t likely to be rattled. Five of the eight girls in the regular rotation are back from last year and two more — Lindsey Spearman and Meghan Earhart — started in the state semifinals last year. “Everybody is a little tight at the start of the match,” Snipes said. “But, these girls have played in a lot of big matches.” And Saturday will be a state tournament type environment. "I think St. Henry brought the whole town the other night and we have a strong following," Snipes said. "You know it’s going to be loud." And Snipes said his team is in full tournament mode right now. “We were playing really well, then we had a stretch where we weren’t playing as well,” he said. “It just seemed like when the tournament started, the kids had a different focus in practice and started playing better. We have been playing well since the tournament started and hopefully we can keep that going.” And pull another “upset.”
