BOE updated on finances, tournaments Sidney City Schools Board of Education members heard a financial report and took personnel action during what was described as a relatively brief meeting Monday evening. Mike Watkins, Sidney City Schools (SCS) treasurer, presented a report about Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) tournaments and SCS serving as a host site for the Southwest District Sectional Girl’s Tournament. Watkins said SCS will be taking a more active role by providing the tournament director and taking a management role for all transactions related to tournament operations. Superintendent John Scheu reported on the success of the schools’ record-breaking Shelby County United Way campaign. Donations from SCS totaled $33,046, which placed SCS in the 2012 top 10 organizations for the United Way. Scheu said the total was significant since SCS has 100 fewer employees than six years ago and all employees took a salary reduction last year and have a salary freeze for the next three years. Scheu cited the “caring and generosity” of SCS employees in supporting the 25 United Way agencies. Many of those agencies benefit SCS students and families. Scheu acknowledged and thanked SCS Communications Coordinator Emily Doenges for her leadership during the campaign. She served as the SCS campaign chairwoman. Board members approved personnel action, including the resignation of Doenges as communications coordinator effective Nov. 16. Scheu told the Sidney Daily News that Doenges has accepted a job in Oakwood

with a venture capital firm, where she will work in public relations. Scheu said the schools are currently accepting applications for Doenges’ position. They are looking for someone with a bachelor’s degree in English or communications and they hope to fill the position by Dec. 25. The deadline to apply for the position is Friday. Those wanting to apply can go to the Sidney City Schools website. In other personnel action, the board accepted the resignations of Rebecca LeMaster, a bus driver, effective Nov. 16, and Sam Ashford, a submaintenance stitute worker, effective Nov. 20. The board approved the hiring of Linda Carpenter as a home instruction tutor on a one year limited, as needed contract effective Nov.12 at a rate of $23.55 per hour. The board approved the hiring of Ed Miller as a substitute teacher on a one year, limited as needed contract effective Nov. 12 at a rate of $87.53 per day. Also approved was Wes Branscum as a substitute aide on a one year limited, as needed contract effective from Dec. 17 through Dec. 21, 2012 at $10.22 per hour. The board also approved James McKenzie as a substitute custodian on a one year limited, as needed contract effective Nov. 15 at a rate of $12.26 per hour. Members also approved transferring $169,853.15 from the general fund to the bond retirement fund for payments made for the BOE building notes and HB 264 notes. In final business, the board OK’d amending appropriations as recommended by Watkins for the Education Jobs Fund in the amount of $16,642.38.

Building project report given BOTKINS — During its November meeting Wednesday, the Botkins Board of Education was updated on the building project. Annexation of the land has been completed and the trailer park will be cleaned up within a week. It is projected the Hageman land will be finalized by Dec. 21. Vendors for controls will be placed on the building specifications. The playground committee has met, elementary will be selecting pieces of equipment, and interested parties are completing a playground survey. The board also reviewed the Third-Grade Guarantee. All students were tested in September. At-risk children have been placed on monitoring plans and will be provided intervention. Parents have been notified of types of intervention offered. Board members also reviewed the status of the Cole Field dugouts. They will be torn down and staff is reviewing the repair of the junior high gym bleachers. The board heard a presentation by the Sidney-Shelby County YMCA requesting use of local school facilities to operate a nine-week sum-

mer day camp for children. Anna, Jackson Center and Botkins children would be served. A resolution to stop collecting the half-mill classroom facilities maintenance levy was adopted. This will become effective at the next tax collection. The school district will begin collecting the new half-mill classroom facilities levy. The board also approved paying parents in lieu of the district transporting students to and from Christian Academy Schools in Sidney. Board members also reviewed and approved the investment report and payroll, expenses, receipts and general fund balances for fiscal years 2009 through 2012. Philip Snider was employed as a substitute janitor at $9 per hour and Kerry Prenger was employed as a substitute teacher. The following were approved as student athletic workers: Preston Running Hawk, Josh Aldrich, Holly Landreth, Karyn Courtney, Carly Harshbarger, Kaylee Bailey, Taylor VanGundy, Xavier Pax, Drake Woodruff, Michaela Lawrence, Kaitlyn Barhorst and Ross Kohler.


Sidney Daily News,Wednesday, November 21, 2012


From Page 1 Bruce Metz, trator Scheu said. “There are a lot of unsung heroes.” As of Tuesday afternoon, Scheu said “only a handful of dogs” still needed homes. He noted a couple of puppies were found dead during the raid. Scheu said that while the puppy mill was “quite a financial bonanza” for the Autons, he would prefer people buy a dog from the Shelby County Animal Shelter or from a “reputable breeder.” SCARF, which was established earlier this year, spent $1,500 on food, cages, locks and other items to make sure the dogs were fed, safe and secure. The expenditures have pretty much depleted SCARF’s treasury, Scheu said. It still needs to pay veterinary bills for the care of the animals and stressed the group badly needs monetary donations. He noted their financial records are open to anyone wanting to be sure the money is used appropriately. Lenhart also urged that anyone wanting to help to consider donatingng to SCARF at P.O. Box 671, Sidney, OH 45365.” Adam Auton, son of Dave and Rhonda, spoke by phone with the Sidney Daily News Tuesday, saying his parents were not home and that his family will eventually tell their story. “That time will come. That time is not right now,” Auton said. “We’ve talked to the Sheriff ’s we’ve Department, talked to our lawyer and we’re not making any comments.”

Piqua teacher in serious condition after accident MINSTER — A Piqua High School teacher is listed in serious condition at Miami Valley Hospital after being struck early Sunday morning by a car not far from his home in Minster. Brian Sherman, 30, of 8 N. Hanover St., Minster, was first taken by the Minster Rescue Squad to Joint Township

Memorial Hospital in St. Marys and later transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley. Minster Police Chief Randy Houseworth said the crash remains under investigation, but preliminary reports indicate Sherman, who was not walking in a crosswalk, was struck by a car being driven east on Fourth Street by Terry

down.” He said none of them were vicious. “They’re helpless animals. To treat a dog like that, I can’t describe it,” Scheu said. Saying his role in the rescue operation was “very minor,” Scheu said he spent time delivering “hundreds of pounds” of dog food in his truck to two locations where the animals were being housed temporarily. One sight particularly stuck in Scheu’s mind. “That was one of the mother dogs that was skin and bones” who drank four bowls of water. As quickly as Scheu and another volunteer filled the bowl, he said, she would drink it and “look up at us like ‘is there anymore?’ Several of the puppies did the same thing.” He noted the dogs were also very hungry. Scheu commended Shelby County Sheriff ’s Deputy and Dog Warden Cami Frey. “She’s a hero as far as I’m concerned. She did a remarkable job of organization,” Scheu said, noting she went a lot of hours with no sleep as she worked to make sure the animals were in a safe environment. Another person also stood out to Scheu during the rescue operation — jail inmate Tom Ganger, currently serving time on misdemeanor charges. Ganger was brought to the scene to assist in caring for the animals. “He was a huge help,” Scheu said. Ganger cleaned out cages and exercised the dogs. “He worked long hours there.” “I have seem him down at the Animal Shelter helping in a variety of ways. He has a big love for animals,” Scheu said. Scheu also said he touched by was Lenhart’s response to the situation. “There is a compassionate side of John Lenhart,” Scheu said, noting the sheriff cares for animals and began working to improve the animal shelter on his second day in office after being appointed in 2011. “The SPCA (workers) are really the true heroes, along with the people who took these dogs in,” providing foster homes, Scheu said. “They (SPCA) probably worked 14 hours Saturday and 14 hours on Sunday.” Another who provided assistance was Jackson Center Village Adminis-


said there was an obvious “front” to the puppy operation that he saw as he walked into the facility. “It looked like a pet store, with beautiful collars, toys….” Scheu said. Then the smell hit him. “The stench nearly knocked me over. They warned me I had to wear a mask,” he said. A total of 241 dogs were rescued from what were described as deplorable conditions at the home of Dave and Rhonda Auton, 8350 Ta w a w a - M a p l e w o o d Road. The business operated as Pedigree Pets. A search warrant served Saturday was the result of a six-month investigation by the Sheriff ’s Office, with the help of the American Kennel Club (AKC), the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) response team and Veterinarian Dr. Lisa Nadasi, of Piqua. Lenhart said investigation into the case is continuing. “As a result, I expect there will be multiple charges filed against the Autons for cruelty to animals, failure to license and possibly other criminal charges,” he said. Scheu, who is also superintendent of the Sidney City Schools, said he had worked as a cruelty investigator for the Shelby County Humane Society approximately 20 years ago and that what greeted him last weekend was beyond anything he could have imagined. “I saw filthy cages, I saw animals that were malnourished, puppies crammed into cages …. feces and urine in the cages” and cages “on top of each other.” “I was totally disgusted,” Scheu said. “I could not imagine how any person could put an animal in a condition (like) that.” As officials brought older animals, including pit bulls and boxers, from behind the house, “they were skin and bones.” Scheu said some of the dogs appeared “grateful” to be free from the conditions in which they had lived. “Some of these dogs had never been outside a cage” and had sores and tumors. Some of them were frightened and shaking. He said they seemed uncertain what to do since they had never been in grass before. Mother dogs were carried out “shaking and cowering” and acting “beaten

Missing cat found INDIANAPOLIS (AP) —A missing family cat has been rescued from the ruins of a home near the center of the deadly Indianapolis house explosion. Fire Capt. Rita Burris says the black cat named Gidget had been missing since the fiery blast late Saturday night. A federal investigator found Gidget on Friday hiding behind a couch in the home of her owners, Glenn and Gloria Olvey. Burris says the cat was scared but otherwise in good condition. The Olveys already had recovered their other three pets. The family lives next door to the house where the blast is believed to have originated.

World intrudes on Obama visit to Southeast Asia PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — For all the attention wrenched elsewhere in recent days — on new violence in the Middle East, the “fiscal cliff” back home — President Barack Obama’s speedy trip to Southeast Asia achieved a major goal: It was clearly seen in the region as a validation of Asia’s strategic importance as the U.S. refocuses its foreign policy to counter China’s clout. It wasn’t easy. Even in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand, Obama could not escape the budget woes waiting for him back home. And his historic visit to Myanmar was all but drowned out by the rocket fire and missile strikes be-

tween Israel and Gaza. He went half a world away to promote U.S.-style democracy but couldn’t leave his troubles behind. Even as Obama traipsed in stocking feet through a temple in the heart of Bangkok, a monk wished him luck negotiating the deficit-reduction challenge awaiting him in Washington. And the bloodshed in the Middle East, exploding as he toured Southeast Asia for three days, illustrated the limits of U.S. foreign policy even as he tried to display its influence and reach. But he came away from his trip to this corner of the world — a place once defined by a

cloistered and shunned nation like Myanmar or by Khmer Rouge “killing fields” or by Chinese power —with at least the hope that the example of U.S. democracy can effect change and strengthen America’s hand. He made his case clearly during a Bangkok news conference: “It’s worked for us for over 200 years now, and I think it’s going to work for Thailand and it’s going to work for this entire region,” he said. “And the alternative, I think, is a false hope that, over time, I think erodes and collapses under the weight of people whose aspirations are not being met.”

AN AMERICAN flag blows in the breeze in front of one of the largest pils of storm debris at the Jersey shore in Long Branch N.J. in this photo taken Thursday. Superstorm Sandy created tons of debris that towns in New York and New Jersey are still struggling to dispose of weeks later. Three weeks in, the round-the clock effort to remove storm rubble has strained the resources of sanitation departments and landfill operators, and caused heartaches and headaches for thousands of families.

Rubble cleanup massive task NEW YORK (AP) — Just a few months ago, the parking lot at Jacob Riis Park on New York City’s Rockaway seashore was filled with happy beachgoers. Now, it is home to a mountain of misery from Superstorm Sandy — a growing pile of garbage containing everything from mangled appliances, splintered plywood and sodden drywall to shreds of clothing and family photos. The seagull-pecked pile, at least two stories high, three quarters of a mile long, and fed by an endless caravan of dump trucks, is just part of a staggering round-the-clock operation along hundreds of miles of coastline to clear away the mangled mess of homes, cars and boats so the rebuilding can begin. Three weeks in, it is an effort that has strained the resources of sanitation departments and landfill operators, and caused headaches and heartache for thousands of families in the sprawling disaster zone. The lucky have only had to empty their base-

ments of soggy belongings. Others have been forced to strip their flood-ravaged homes down to the studs and pile drywall, furniture, clothing and appliances on the sidewalk. “We’ve seen people put virtually all their worldly possessions at the curb,” said Mike Deery, a spokesman for the town of Hempstead, which includes several beach and bay hamlets on Long Island’s South Shore. “We’ve gone down streets and picked up the entire contents of homes, and come back the next day and have it look like we haven’t been there in months.” In the three weeks since the storm, New York City alone has removed an estimated 271,000 tons of wreckage from flooded neighborhoods. That doesn’t include the downed limbs and trunks of some 26,000 damaged trees. New Jersey shore towns have been adding to big piles of rubble just like the one at Jacob Riis. One of the biggest ones, in Long Branch, reaches nearly three stories into the sky from a vacant lot a block from the ocean.

Search warrants issued in blast INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Investigators have served search warrants and are questioning people in connection with an Indianapolis house explosion that killed two people and destroyed at least five homes. Prosecutor Terry Curry told The Indianapolis Star on Tuesday that warrants had been issued.

Curry spokeswoman Brienne Delaney told The Associated Press no arrests had been made. The investigation into the Nov. 10 explosion is believed to focus on a house occupied by Monserrate Shirley and her boyfriend, Mark Leonard. The couple and Shirley’s 12-year-old daughter were

Among the state’s 88 counties, the Octoer 2012 unemployment rates (not seasonally adjusted) ranged from a low of 3.8 in Mercer County to a high of 11.5 percent in Pike County. Rates decreased in 74 of the 88 counties. Shelby County had the 69th lowest rate of unemployment in the state in October. Eight counties had unemployment rates at or below 5 percent in October. The counties with the lowest rates, other than Mercer, were Holmes, 4.2; Delaware, 4.5; Auglaize and Geauga, 4.7; Putnam, 4.9; and Medina, 5.0 percent. Ten counties had unemployment rates above 9.0 percent in October.

Attorney Randall Cable said Tuesday that Shirley and Leonard had been cooperating with investigators and were “bewildered” by Monday’s announcement that the investigation was considered a criminal homicide.

NEW YORK (AP) — Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash resigned from “Sesame Street” on Tuesday amid allegations he sexually abused underage boys, bringing an end to a 28year career in which he turned the furry red monster into one of the most beloved — and lucrative — characters on TV and in toy stores. “Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work ‘Sesame Street’ is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer,” the 52-year-old performer said in a statement. “I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately.” His departure came as a 24year-old college student, Cecil Singleton, sued Clash for more than $5 million Tuesday, accusing the actor of engaging in sexual behavior with him when he was 15. Singleton charged that Clash made a habit of trolling gay chat lines for underage boys and meeting them for sex. It was the second such allegation in just over a week. On Nov. 12, a man in his 20s said he had sex with Clash at age 16. A day later, though, the young man recanted, saying their relationship was adult and consensual. Clash was a young puppeteer at “Sesame Street” in the mid-1980s when he was assigned a little-used puppet now known as Elmo and turned him into a star, creating his high-pitched voice and child-like personality. Clash also served as the show’s senior Muppet coordinator and Muppet captain, winning 23 daytime Emmy awards and one prime-time Emmy. In a statement, Sesame Workshop said that “the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want,” and that Clash had concluded “he can no longer be effective in his job.” “This is a sad day for Sesame Street,” the company said. Clash did not address the new allegations. He said previously that he had an adult and consensual relationship with the first accuser. The divorced father of a grown daughter, he acknowledged that he is gay. At a news conference Tuesday, Singleton said he and Clash met on a gay chat line when he was 15, and for a twoweek period, they had sexual contact but not intercourse. He said he didn’t know what Clash did for a living until he was 19 and Googled the man’s name. “I was shocked when I found out what he did for a living,” said Singleton, a student in criminal psychology who lives in New York but would not say where he goes to school.

Honors induction New members of the National Honor Society at Sidney High School participate in the induction ceremony Thursday.

Mexican duo wins Grammys BY GISELA SALOMON LAS VEGAS (AP) — As Colombian rockero Juanes took home the best album award, Mexican brother-sister duo Jesse & Joy and their pop hit “Corre!” ran away with four awards at the 13th Annual Latin Grammys. Hosted by actors Cristian De La Fuente and Lucero, Thursday night’s event attracted stars from across the world and from dozens of Latin musical genres to the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Just like at a big family party, new faces shared the spotlight with older generations, and traditional styles mixed with electronica and Vegas dancers on stage. Traditional Mexico met Las Vegas in a colorful number featuring Oaxaca native Lila Downs, AfroColombian singer Toto la

Momposina and dancers in regional costumes, Carnival masks and skeleton makeup. “What a great joy. Thank God, and all the fans,” Juanes said as he dragged Dominican mereguero Juan Luis Guerra, who produced “MTV Unplugged,” to the stage to accept the minigramaphone for best album at the close of the ceremony. The winner for best new artist, the Mexican DJ trio 3ball MTY, threw down beats with America Sierra and Sky Blu of LMFAO. Pitbull performed “Don’t Stop the Party” with dancers in gold spangled bikinis and hot pants. Juanes jammed with legendary guitarist Carlos Santana. Michel Telo, the Brazilian sertanejo or country music singer, performed his hit, “Ai si eu te pego,” with Blue Man Group.

Bachata heartthrob Prince Royce sang with veteran Mexican singer-songwriter Joan Sebastian. But the applause was also strong for the 1980s hit,“Yo No Te Pido la Luna,” a duet between Spaniard Sergio Dalma and Mexican singer Daniela Romo, sporting a short silver hairdo following her bout with breast cancer. Jesse & Joy also won for best contemporary pop vocal album for “Con Quien se Queda el Perro” and best short video for “Me voy.”

Realtors note October home sales gain pricing expectations and consumers understand that long-term, owning a home is a tremendous investment.” Not only have sales levels during the first 10 months exceeded the pace of a year ago, the average sales price (January through October) throughout Ohio this year is up 4.8 percent, reaching $135,435 versus the 2011 mark of $128,954. Total dollar volume this year is $12.8 billion, an 18.8 percent increase from last year’s 10month mark of nearly $10.8 billion. Miller noted that a recent survey of the state’s real estate professionals suggests the industry remains cautiously optimistic about the market’s outlook in the coming months. The OAR Housing Market Confidence Index, a recently created measurement of the perception Ohio Realtors have of the marketplace, offers the following highlights of the November 2012 report: • 78 percent of Realtors describe the current housing market in their area as moderate to strong; a significant increase from the 53 percent mark the profession posted during the month a year ago. This month’s Realtor Current Market Index measurement reached 43, a 16 point improvement from the November 2011 score of 27. • 75 percent of the respondents have moderate to strong expectations for their market in the next six months; increasing 23 percentage points from

the November 2011 level of 52 percent. This month’s Realtor Future Market Index reached 43, a 16 point increase from the November 2011 Index of 27. • 86 percent of Realtors believe home prices over the next year will remain stable and could even post gains; 7 percentage points more than the findings in November 2011 (of 79 percent). The Realtor Price Index for Realtors’ expec-

tations for the next year reached 61, a 17 point increase than the mark recorded during the month a year ago (44). “Ohio’s Realtors remain remarkably bullish about the current and long-term prospects of our housing market,” Miller said. “Realtors are there when buyers and sellers express their hopes and concerns during what is often the largest financial decision made in a lifetime. Our

outlook is simply a reflection of the discussions taking place at countless kitchen tables across Ohio.” Sales in October reached 10,131, a 23.1 percent increase from the 8,230 sales posted during the same period a year ago. The month’s average sales price of $133,800 is an 8.0 percent increase from the October 2011 mark of $123,148. Total dollar volume in

October reached $1.35 billion, a 33.7 percent increase from the $1.0 billion mark posted a year ago.

Home sales activity throughout Ohio increased 23.1 percent in October, helping the marketplace record its 16th consecutive monthly sales gain, according to the statistics provided by the state’s Multiple Listing Services. Sales of new and existing homes have posted a 13.1 percent increase during the first 10 months of 2012 compared to the same period a year ago, reaching 94,733 sales versus the 2011 mark of 83,728. “It’s become increasingly evident that the Ohio housing market is making significant progress in its recovery from the economic downturn — achieving increased sales activity for 16th consecutive month and seeing a steady uptick in the average sales price,” said Robert U. Miller, president of the Ohio Association of Realtors. Miller noted that the Association began tracking sales data in 1998 and the current stretch of 16 straight monthly gains is the longest uninterrupted period of sales growth the Ohio market has ever recorded. “Across the Buckeye State we’re building a solid foundation for a sustainable, growing housing marketplace going forward,” he said. “Ohio Realtors continue to be extremely confident about the prospects for our market — as interest rates remain at historic lows, prices have begun to trend upward, inventories are declining, sellers are increasingly realistic in their

Meyer, Hoke appreciate coaches who went before COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — What’s brewing with the 2012 Ohio State Buckeyes ... BUCKEYES BUZZ: Urban Meyer likes walking where the giants of the coaching profession once walked. Meyer is at the helm for the first time in a Michigan-Ohio State game. He says he understands what his role is and how much the game means. “Without getting overdramatic, you know, it’s only Tuesday and we play this game on Saturday,” he said on the Big Ten coaches call. “My job’s to make sure the team plays it on Saturday, not today.” Born in Toledo and raised in Ashtabula, he is well aware of the spotlight cast on him and what he does. “It means everything from a person who grew up here that understands the rivalry and respects the rivalry,” he said. “I guess the thing I understand is the incredible obligation, the responsibility, of getting this team ready to go.” The heyday of the rivalry, being played for the 109th time on Saturday at noon (on ABC), was of course from 1969 to 1978 — called “The TenYear War” when Bo Schembechler coached the Wolverines and Woody Hayes was in charge at Ohio State. Two larger-than-life figures directed their charges who annually seemed to be playing for a Rose Bowl or even a national championship. “The one thing about this rivalry, you’re taught at a very young age who the enemy is. However, there’s a deep-rooted respect for the enemy,” Meyer said. “That’s the way I was raised. I remember from a very young age there was a lot of respect for coach Schembechler.” Later in life, when he became a head coach for the first time in 2001 at Bowling Green, Schembechler, by then long since retired, called to congratulate Meyer. Meyer had crossed paths with Hayes when Meyer was a graduate assistant under Earle Bruce. “I was able to sit down and speak with him a few times,” Meyer said. Of course, Bo and Woody, Woody and Bo, remain two of the pivotal characters in this annual drama. Both have died, but each year about this time reporters and fans dust off the old stories about their glorious friendship that became contentious for a decade and then ended with both best of friends once more. Michigan’s Brady Hoke also grew up watching the two coaching legends and it had a profound effect on him as well. “Growing up in the state of Ohio and kind of being a Michigan fan, I really wish I could tell you,” he said, when asked when he first realized how big ‘The Game’ was. “I don’t know if there’s any one moment. You know, the two iconic coaches with the ‘TenYear War’ with coach Hayes and coach Schembechler was a big part of it.” Meyer saw those two stormy personalities and knew he wanted to be like them someday. “I knew at a young age I wanted to be a coach,” he said. “Those are the two (names) that were the first two out of mouth whenever I said what great coaches were.” TEDFORD FIRED: California coach Jeff Tedford was fired Tuesday. His team ended up 3-9, losing its final five games. One of his team’s best games of the season came on Sept. 15 at Ohio Stadium, where the Golden Bears were tied at 28 with the Buckeyes before a defensive mix-up in the secondary left Devin Smith wide open for a 72-yard touchdown pass with 3:26 left in a 35-28 defeat.

Rutgers joins Big Ten PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — As the Big East was being picked apart, Rutgers was looking for a way out and a new place to show off a football program that has been resurrected in the past decade. Not only did Rutgers find that escape hatch, the Scarlet Knights ended up in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in college sports. Rutgers joined the Big Ten on Tuesday, leaving the Big East behind and cashing in on the school’s investment in a football team that only 10 years ago seemed incapable of competing at the highest level. The move follows Maryland’s announcement a day earlier that it was heading to the Big Ten in 2014. The additions give the Big Ten 14 schools and a presence in lucrative East Coast markets. Rutgers announced its decision Tuesday at a campus news conference attended by Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, Rutgers President Robert Barchi and athletic director Tim Pernetti. “The Big Ten is really where Rutgers belongs,” Barchi said. “This is not just a good fit for us athletically, it’s a good fit for us academically and as an institution.”

It’s the perfect

place for Rutgers.” Rutgers left its entry date ambiguous, though clearly the Big Ten and the school would like it to line up with Maryland. The Big East requires 27 months’ notification for departing members. The Scarlet Knights will have to negotiate a deal with the Big East to leave early, the way Pittsburgh, Syracuse and West Virginia have done. “Although we are disappointed that Rutgers has decided to leave the Big East Conference, we wish them well,” Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco said in a statement. In an interview later, Aresco said that the conference would survive. “We’ll move judiciously to replace Rutgers, but we had already changed from the small, Northeast model,” he said. “We’re a national conference now. We became a bigger and better football conference.” The Big East is trying to rebuild itself as a 12-team football league next season, with the addition of Boise State and five other schools. Now the conference is again on the defensive. Connecticut or Louisville could be next to go with the ACC looking to replace Maryland.

IN THIS April 23, 2011, Ohio State director of athletics, Gene Smith, left, talks coach Jim Tressel, right, before their spring NCAA college football game in Columbus, Ohio. A lot of Ohio State fans are angry that their 11-0 football team can't play for the Big Ten championship, can't go to a bowl game and isn't in the conversation for the national title.

Many unhappy OSU can be 12-0 but still stay home COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Any other year Ohio State is unbeaten and ranked No. 4 coming into its annual rivalry game with Michigan, its fans would be trolling the internet for the best airfares to the BCS title game. Not this time. Due to NCAA sanctions, Ohio State is banned from playing for the Big Ten championship next week and going to a bowl, and isn’t a factor in the national title picture. So a wondrous and surprising season — 11-0 heading into Saturday’s home game with the 20th-ranked Wolverines — will come to an abrupt end on Saturday. Many of the faithful blame athletic director Gene Smith, who gambled and lost that the NCAA wouldn’t levy a bowl ban. Letters to the editor in the local newspaper, calls to sports talk shows and posts on fan websites all spew vitriol at Smith, who had served on the NCAA’s committee on infractions and believed the penalties he and Ohio State’s administrators had proposed would be sufficient to appease the ruling body of intercollegiate sports.

“At the time we made the decision we felt confident that we would not receive the bowl ban,” Smith said on Tuesday. “When we received it we were shocked and devastated.” The sanctions stem from former coach Jim Tressel learning in April 2010 that several players had likely received free tattoos and cash from the subject of a federal drug investigation. NCAA rules require coaches to notify the association or their superiors when they have any information that violations may have taken place, including improper benefits to athletes. Also, Tressel’s contract clearly specified that he was required to report any hint of wrongdoing. Yet he didn’t tell anyone. It was only after the Buckeyes had completed a 12-1 record, won the Big Ten and the Sugar Bowl, that investigators looking into another matter came across incriminating emails which proved that Tressel had knowledge of potential violations. Tressel was forced to resign in late May 2011. Ohio State officials worked closely with the NCAA in a lengthy investigation that also turned up

evidence of other violations. In July, roughly a month before Ohio State’s hearing before the NCAA’s committee on infractions, Smith said he believed the self-imposed sanctions, which included vacating the 2010 season, returning bowl money, five-game suspensions for several players, NCAA probation and recruiting limitations, would be enough to mollify the NCAA. He said there would be no bowl ban “unless something new arises.” That proved to be prophetic. On the eve of the opening game of the 2011 season, with defensive assistant Luke Fickell taking over as interim coach, three players were suspended for each accepting $200 in cash from a booster at a charity event. A large segment of fans remain angry at Smith, who declined to reveal how much negative feedback he has received. “I know it’s difficult to move on when we’re having so much success, but the reality is that there’s nothing at this point in time that anyone at this institution can do about that,” he said.

Troy Christian has informed the Northwest Central Conference, which includes Lehman, Fort Loramie and Riverside, that it has withdrawn from football participation in the league. That’s according to an email received by the website The Senior Reports ( from NWCC commissioner Dave May. Attempts to contact May today were unsuccessful. In the email, May said the decision came as no surprise because the school’s administration had kept the league informed Troy Christian joined the NWCC this year along with Lehman and Fort Loramie, for football only, However, Troy Christian was forced to cancel its football season due to a lack of players. As a result, Lehman had just nine football games this past season, but athletic director and head football coach Dick Roll said Tuesday that the Cavaliers will play Dayton Jefferson next year in week six, when they were scheduled to play Troy Christian. It will be a home game for Lehman, and Roll said there is an option for a second game in 2014. The two teams played each other annually when they were both members of the Metro Buckeye Conference. Fort Loramie, meanwhile, was not scheduled to play Troy Christian this past season, but was next season. In light of what transpired this season, Fort Loramie went ahead and scheduled Ada in that slot next year. “We knew Ada was available that week so we went ahead with it,” said Loramie head coach Matt Burgbacher. Ada was 9-1 and the top team in Region 24 of Division VI this season. Complete access is just a

Stechschulte expects some growing pains WINTER


Fisher also saw time at the point and posted over 30 assists and 30 steals. Two other seniors are on the Wildcat roster in guard/forward Taylor Arnold and guard Megan Liening along with juniors Hannah Sherman and Kathy Prenger and sophomore Logan Arnold. “We’re looking to have a lot of people contribute this year,” said Stechschulte. “We have a big sophomore class on the junior varsity squad and I think some of them will play a role for us before the end of the season, especially with kids being allowed 110 quarters this year. “We’re not real big, so rebounding and defense will be a key, but it always is,” added Stechschulte. “When we face teams with bigger size, we may have to extend the defense a bit and not let people post up on us.” Along with the MAC slate, Minster will face five Shelby County teams, Kalida, Ottoville and Wapakoneta and compete in the Elida Tournament, along with facing newcomers to the schedule in Mississinawa Valley and Troy. “It’s a tough schedule, but that’s the way I want it to be,” said Stechschulte. “The girls learn and grow from it. You want to have a good regular season and have a goal of winning the league, but it all comes down to the second sea-

son. That’s what it’s all about. “We have seven games over the Christmas break, so I haven’t been a big fan of the two additional games,” added the coach. “That’s not much of a break for the kids, but that’s where we had to fit the games in. It could make for a tough situation if we have a bad winter. “Fort Recovery and Marion Local will be strong in the MAC and I feel that Coldwater, Delphos St. John’s and Versailles will be contenders. Overall, I think the conference race will be wide open.”

Swimming Minster has 11 athletes out for the swimming and diving team this season under thirdyear head coach Laurissa Dalrymple. “We don’t have the numbers we’d like to have, but we should be competitive,” said Dalrymple. “We have a quite a few freshmen and sophomores, so while we will be young. It’s exciting to see them wanting to learn to be better swimmers.” The lone senior is Andy Borges, while the juniors include Kara Kitzmiller, Leah Niekamp and Dominic Slonkosky. The sophomores are Nikki Borgerding, Cassie Jutte, Seth Koenig and Erica Oldiges and the three freshmen are Dane Dahlinghaus, Bruce McGowan and Max Pelletier.

MINSTER — Longtime head girls basketball coach Nann Stechschulte has just four returning letterwinners from a team that finished 14-7 overall last season and 6-3 in the always tough Midwest Athletic Conference. “Of our four returnees, two are juniors that gained a lot of experience as sophomores last year and two are seniors,” said Stechschulte. “We are going to be young and there will be some growing pains. We just need to see how they will all fit together.” Senior forward Bridget Geiger shot 48 percent from the field during the regular season and will be counted on to provide offense for the Wildcats again this year. Senior forward Sara Dahlinghaus is also back after recording nearly 40 steals a year ago. “We need for Bridget to do her job inside,” said Stechschulte. “Sara had mostly a defensive role last season, but this year we’re looking for her to score more. “The biggest expectation I have from Bridget and Sara, though, is leadership,” added the coach. “They are the two seniors with the most experience and they need to be vocal for us on and off the court.” A pair of junior guards rounds out the list of returning letterwinners. Kayla Richard ran the point for Minster last season and had over 40 assists while Claire

Sidney residents claim Pilgrim ancestry BY FRED HERRON You may have heard the song “Angels Among Us,” performed by the country band, Alabama. Well, there are actually Pilgrims among us as well, or at least their descendants. A Sidney family can trace its lineage directly to that group that first stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock in 1620 in what was to become the state of Massachusetts. Among them is Mary Ellen Egbert, 212 Karen Ave., who is nine generations removed from two of the original Pilgrims.

History lottery “I had no idea,” said Egbert about her Mayflower descedency. “We feel like we’ve hit the history lottery. This is really, really huge! The puzzle is coming together.” According to an article on the History Channel’s website,, the Pilgrims were “some 100 people, many of them seeking religious freedom in the New World, (who) set sail from England on the Mayflower in September 1620. That November, the ship landed on the shores of Cape Cod, in present-day Massachusetts. A scouting party was sent out, and in late December the group landed at Plymouth Harbor, where they would form the first permanent settlement of Europeans in New England. These original settlers of Plymouth Colony are known as the Pilgrim Fathers, or simply as the Pilgrims.” It also noted a little less known fact about the pilgrims. “The group that set out from Plymouth, in southwestern England, in September 1620 included 35 members of a radical Puritan faction known as the English Separatist Church. In 1607, after illegally breaking from the Church of England, the Separatists settled in the Netherlands, first in Amsterdam and later in the town of Leiden, where they remained for the next decade under the relatively lenient Dutch laws. Due to economic difficulties, as well as fears that they would lose their English language and heritage, they began to make plans to settle in the New World. Their intended destination was a region near the Hudson River, which at the time was thought to be part of the already established colony of Virginia. In 1620, the wouldbe settlers joined a London stock company that would finance their trip aboard the Mayflower, a three-masted merchant ship, in 1620. A smaller vessel, the Speedwell, had initially accompanied the Mayflower and carried some of the travelers, but it proved unseaworthy and was forced to return to port by September.”

‘Old Comers’ Of special mention was that “Bradford and the other Plymouth settlers were not originally known as Pilgrims, but as ‘Old Comers.’ This changed after the discovery of a manuscript by Bradford in which he called the settlers who left Holland ‘saints’ and ‘pilgrimes.’ In 1820, at a bicentennial celebration of the colony’s founding, the orator Daniel Webster referred to ‘Pilgrim Fathers,’ and the term stuck.” Most of the popular images known to many Americans are of men in dark, English clothing with tall, conical hats, and women with long modest dresses and bonnets on their heads. The images also include the pilgrims meeting Native Americans

Excited, Egbert went on the Internet and had no difficulty finding Rouse’s ancestors, who turned out to be Mayflower notables Miles Standish’s and John Alden Standish’s son, Alexander, who married Alden’s daughter, Sarah.

Standish, Egbert discovered “was one of the 41 signers of the Mayflower Compact, which states that the colony’s purpose was to advance the Christian Faith for the glory of God.” Alden also signed the compact, being the seventh to do so. Egbert said that she also discovered that Alden had many distinguished descendants — including John Adams, John Quincy Adams and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. And reportedly, Alden was the first person from the Mayflower to set foot on Plymouth Rock. In Sidney, Egbert in not alone in being able to lay claim to Pilgrim ancestry. She is one of 11, including her children and grandchildren. Egbert’s three children are Stefanie Rose, Lee Ellen, and Diana Lynn. The grandchildren are Caedance Rose Hale, Tylee Drew Hale, Nylah Fair Hale, Jericho Uriah Hale, Raenah Elizabeth Daniel, Isaiah Stephen Daniel, and Gabriel Walker Reed Daniel.

Part of history As a Barber descendant, Egbert has already enjoyed being a part of history, and telling that story, as a quilter. When she went to her greatgrandfather Barber’s home in 2008, she commented that “one painting caught my eye and I knew I had seen the person’s image before. I learned that Col. Levi Barber was a close friend to Henry Clay (who ran for office on an unpopular anti-slavery platform) — and his portrait still hangs in the house today. (Now, as a quilter) I have done lectures on (the) history of quilting, and one of the stories I relate is the significance of the name of the quilt block and its history.” Now the connection with history is even more profound. Egbert is thrilled to learn about her deeper connection to the Mayflower Pilgrims. “I am going to design a quilt as a result of this,” Egbert said. This includes making the Pilgrim connection a part of the lectures she gives as well.

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Don’t lend money or make important decisions today. Even though you feel sympathetic and generous toward others, wait until tomorrow to make firm decisions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Relations with partners and close friends are warm and lovey-dovey today. Everything is pie-in-the-sky, pleasant and enjoyable. Relax with loved ones. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Romance with a co-worker or a flirtation that is job-related is likely today. You’ll enjoy making something look better at work or even decorating your workspace. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today you’re in a romantic mood, which means you could fall in love with anyone. Just be aware that you’re wearing rose-colored glasses and that things look better than they really are. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Family gatherings will be fun and pleasurable today. You’ll also enjoy redecorating or fixing up where you live. However, do not sign real-estate deals or spend money. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might spend today daydreaming or fantasizing about things. Don’t worry — it’s that kind of day. Do not sign important papers. (Ya think?) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a poor day to make major purchases of anything other than food. You’re tempted to spend money on luxury and elegance — don’t do it. Wait until tomorrow. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Relationships that begin today will be illusory even if you feel you have met your soul mate. It’s easy to deceive yourself, because you have Vaseline on your lens. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might feel great compassion for someone who is less fortunate or suffering. If you can do anything, by all means do so; but remain realistic and don’t make promises. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Creative activity with others, especially in group situations, will be productive and abundant. It’s easy to think outside the box today; plus, everyone wants to cooperate with one another. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might develop a crush on your boss or strike up a romance with someone older, richer or more experienced. Don’t get too carried away, because you probably have pixie dust in your eyes. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) If you feel yourself being swept away by a charismatic teacher, be on your guard. Today you are very susceptible to persuasive discussions about religion and politics. YOU BORN TODAY Your freedom-loving nature makes you grab life with gusto. You relish excitement and enthusiasm! One of the ways you keep yourself free is that you have the ability to ignore what others think of you. You are interested in people from all walks of life. Your ideals include improving the lives of those around you. In the year ahead, an important choice will arise. Choose wisely.

Rights and Responsibilities The Constitution and the nation’s laws guarantee U.S. citizens many rights and freedoms. But citizens also have responsibilities, one of which is not to abuse their rights. An abuse of the Constitution’s freedom of speech guarantee, for example, would be to yell something that would cause people to commit an act that might endanger themselves or others. A group could abuse the freedom to assemble by gathering to act violently or destructively. Citizens’ responsibilities also include duties such as obeying traffic laws, respecting the outcome of elections and paying taxes.

4. Write a paragraph to explain a responsibility citizens have in connection with each right. Use a separate sheet of paper.

Rules and Regulations: 1) The ornament must be made of recyclable or reusable materials. Glue, paint, glitter, floral wire, etc. can be used, but the main emphasis of the contest is to see what can be created with recyclable or reused items. 2) Ornaments should be no more than 6”x6”x6” in size. 3) The ornament should be light in weight so it can hang on a tree. 4) The ornament must have an appropriate method to be attached to a tree (hanger.) 5) The materials cannot pose a safety hazard to the creator or those observing the ornament. Avoid the use of sharp, toxic or easily breakable materials. 6) Perishable items can’t be used. 7) A 3 x 5 card should be SECURELY attached to each ornament listing the following: A) School name & teacher name B) Student’s name and grade C) Parent’s address & phone number • Deadline: Friday, November 30th at 4 p.m. • Turn in entries at the Miami County Sanitary Eng. at 2200 N. County Road 25-A, Troy, OH 45373 • Call Cindy at 440-3488 for questions or email • Ornaments can be viewed or picked up after Dec. 10 • McDonalds food wrappers also can be used to create an ornament

5. Finish with a paragraph describing what you think is the most important responsibility people have as citizens. Use a separate sheet of paper.

Entries will be judged depending on number of entries received by grade levels and PRIZES for 1st, 2nd and 3rd will be awarded accordingly. All entries become the property of Sanitary Engineering, unless otherwise requested.

1. As a class, discuss how rights and responsibilities often go together. 2. Use the print, electronic or Web edition of the newspaper to find three examples of rights people have in the nation or your community. List them here. ________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________ 3. For each, write a paragraph to explain why the right is important to citizens. Use a separate sheet of paper.

that everything we eat, everything we wear, and everything in our home came in a truck, and even though most of us are frustrated by the traffic they may cause, they play a major role in keeping America moving. Drivers on average log over 432 billion miles per year to bring fresh produce and frozen foods to distribution centers all over the continent. ATA numbers show that trucks delivered 10.7 billion tons of freight in 2007, or 69 percent of total U.S. freight tonnage. Today is the perfect time to offer a little drive-by salute to the truckers you share the road with. Remember, too, that trucks have several blind spots that make it hard for them to see you at all times. Be patient with them as they are big and slow and need lots of space. If you get annoyed by them and cut them off or jam the breaks, you are only playing with your own safety. Drive smart and share the road with them as they are the ones who are making your lifestyles possible.

1. Keep the tree in a cool, shady place like the garage or porch until ready to bring indoors to decorate. 2. Saw a thin disk (1/2 to 1 inch) off the trunk prior to placing the tree in a water-holding stand. 3. Make the cut perpendicular to the axis of the stem, NOT in a v-shape or at angles. The tree will “drink” its water through the layer between the bark and wood. If you shave the bark off of the trunk the tree will not be able to absorb water. 4. Place the tree in its water-holding stand within two hours after making the cut to the trunk. When a tree is cut it will naturally form a seal of sap over it’s stump to keep moisture in the tree. You must break the seal to allow the tree to once again “drink” the water needed to keep it fresh throughout the holidays. 5. Your stand must be able to hold enough water for the size of the tree. A good rule of thumb is a one-quart capacity for every inch of diameter of the trunk. 6. Water temperature makes no difference.
