Logjam removal to begin in spring Allen, Auglaize, Shelby counties take part in project BY KATE MALONGOWSKI Civitas Media LIMA — It’s been years in the making, but the logjam removal project along the Auglaize River is finally going to be started this spring. Commissioners from Allen, Auglaize and Shelby counties came out near Kendrick Woods Metro Park on Thursday to see one of the bigger problem areas along the river, where debris was piled several feet high. It’s classified as a Class D logjam, which is the largest classification.

“It’s estimated that its taken about five years for this class D to accumulate to the size that we see here,” said Doug Spencer, an Auglaize County commissioner. “It’s a large jam, only of which it has taken considerable time to accumulate, and we think its going to take the contractor a considerable time to remove,” said Sam Bassitt, an Allen County commissioner. “It’s going to allow the water to move smoothly and at a rapid rate through this space, such that water will be eliminated from farm fields and from neighborhoods. … The project will make an immeasurable difference in terms of

the community.” Tree trunks, cut wood and other debris have gathered around the river’s curves over the years, causing flooding, erosion and affecting wildlife. The ice storm in 2005 and the flood in 2009 were a couple major factors to blame, worsening the problem. The project to clear the logjams was approved Nov. 20, after hearings between residents and commissioners to talk about the issue. Rahrig Tree Company from Forest won the bid to clear it. It’s funded through assessments of See LOGJAM/Page 8A

Obama takes his fiscal plan to Pa. BY JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press HATFIELD, Pa. (AP) — President Barack Obama argued Friday that allowing taxes to rise for the middle class would amount to a “lump of coal” for Christmas, while Republican House Speaker John Boehner declared that negotiations to surmount a looming fiscal cliff are going “almost nowhere.” Obama took his case to an audience in a Philadelphia suburb, saying that this move would present a “Scrooge Christmas” for millions of wage-earners. Speaking at a toy factory, the president said Republicans should extend existing Bush-era tax rates for households earning $250,000 or less, while allowing increases to kick in for the wealthy. On Capitol Hill, Boehner argued that Obama’s latest offer — to raise revenue by $1.6 trillion over the next decade — would be a “crippling blow” to an economy that is still struggling to find its footing. The Ohio Republican told reporters he would continue working with Obama to avoid hundreds of billions in tax increases and spending cuts that will take effect beginning in January if Washington doesn’t act to stop it, but gave a gloomy assessment of the talks so far. “There’s a stalemate. Let’s not kid ourselves,” Boehner said. “Right now, we’re almost nowhere.” Obama’s speech came a day after his administration proposed See OBAMA/Page 5A

MINSTER — The Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the village of New Bremen and the school guidance counselors in Minster, New Bremen and New Knoxville to put on the first-ever “Exploration Academy” on Tuesday. The Exploration Academy will be held in the gymnasium of the Auglaize-Mercer Family YMCA South Branch in Minster. The gym will be set up with 12 seating areas and the students will hear presentations from local business people explaining a wide variety of career opportunities. The event will include all of the ninth-grade students from each district. “We’re trying to find different ways to help our students plan their future, using the real-world resources we have available locally,” explained SWAC Chamber Executive Director Scott Frey. “Over 50 local professionals have agreed to provide basic information on their careers, and how our students can prepare themselves for the career they want. We’re really fortunate to have so many local companies willing to invest their time and talents in our young people.” “Students provided their top three career interests to their guidance counselors, and that served as our list of career presentations,” said New Bremen Economic Development Director Angela Hamberg. “We created a schedule where each student would attend six 20minute sessions and hear from different professionals. We felt that this would provide them with some assistance in arranging their high school and post-secondary plans.” Auglaize County Commissioner Douglas Spencer will speak about public employment and service over the lunch break. Zeal Coaching for Life and Careers owner Christy Shell will help teach the students how they can identify their strengths, weaknesses and choose career options based on that information. Students are suggested to go home and discuss the day’s activities with their parents. “We believe that many parents will be surprised at the amount of good information the kids will come away with,” said Frey. “There are many excellent opportunities for our young people right here in our region. We want to be sure they understand that there is something here locally for them to pursue after high school.”

Financier gets 50 years for $200 million swindle BY TOM LOBIANCO Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana financier and former chief executive of National Lampoon convicted of swindling investors out of about $200 million was sentenced Friday to 50 years in prison by a judge who told him his “deceit, greed and arrogance” had cost many of his victims their life savings and dreams of a comfortable retirement. U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson said Timothy Durham had violated the trust of thousands of small investors from the American Heartland who had been careful with their money and invested it with him in hopes of traveling in their retirement, paying off their mortgages and perhaps buying a small home in Florida. She told the court Durham had plundered their money so he

defrauded, it is the most serious offense because it undermines the fabric of this country.” Durham, who was led into the courtroom in handcuffs and leg chains and wearing a gray-green prison jumpsuit, had no visible reaction when the judge pronounced his sentence. The 50-year-old rocked briefly in his chair afterward and fidgeted with a pen he held with his both his hands, quietly telling Magnus-Stinson “No, your honor” when she asked if he had any questions about his sentence. But he appeared dazed as he was handcuffed and led from the room into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. James Cochran, an associate of Durham, was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison, while accountant Rick Snow received a 10-year sentence. Both Durham and Cochran were taken away in handcuffs to

serve their sentences, but Snow was allowed to leave with his family, pending a determination on where he will serve his sentence. A jury in June found the three men guilty of securities fraud and conspiracy. It also convicted Durham, a major Indiana Republican Party donor who resigned his post at National Lampoon in January, of 10 counts of wire fraud, while Cochran and Snow were convicted on some of those counts. Prosecutors have said the three stripped Akron, Ohio-based Fair Finance of its assets and used the money to buy mansions, classic cars and other luxury items and to keep another of Durham’s company afloat. The men were convicted of operating an elaborate Ponzi scheme to hide the company’s depleted condition from regulators and investors, many of whom were elderly.

Bomb plotter gets 6 years BY THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press AKRON (AP) — The first man to plead guilty in a failed to plot bomb a h i g h way bridge in Ohio was sentenced Friday to six years in prison, the lightHayne est sentence of the four handed out so far. Anthony Hayne, 36, of Cleveland, apologized before being sentenced in U.S. District Court. His guilty plea and offer

to testify for prosecutors quickly led three of his co-defendants to plead guilty. A fifth defendant is undergoing a psychiatric exam. Hayne, who was at greater risk of a long sentence because of his criminal record for theft and breaking and entering, had pleaded guilty in a deal seeking to avoid a possible life sentence. He stuck with his guilty plea but backed out of the plea deal, hoping his sentence would still wind up less than his co-defendants. “What I did was wrong,” Hayne told the court. And, in an apparent reference to co-de-

fendants who blamed their involvement on liquor or drugs, added, “I blame it on myself.” The men were arrested in an FBI sting operation targeting a highway bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron. The FBI has said the public was never in danger and the device was a dud provided by an informant. Still, the fact that the device was a dud “is not a defense,” Judge David Dowd said. The suspects were described by the government as self-proclaimed anarchists who acted out of anger against corpo-

743 lbs. of pot seized EATON (AP) — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is racking up another record year for drug seizures. Troopers on Thursday confiscated 743 pounds of marijuana after stopping a pickup truck for an improper lane change on Interstate 70 in western Ohio. Troopers say they saw indicators of criminal activity, and a police dog alerted them to the presence of drugs. An Arizona man was jailed in Preble County. The 743 pounds is the second-largest marijuana seizure this year by troopers. Patrol spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston says troopers have increased emphasis on drug interdiction and watching for signs of such crime. Marijuana seizures by the patrol are up 151 percent over last year, and heroin is up 295 percent. And last year was a record year for the patrol on drug seizures.

Infant’s death probed CIRCLEVILLE (AP) — Authorities in central Ohio are searching for a man who’s been accused of causing fatal brain injuries to his girlfriend’s 10month-old baby. The Pickaway County Sheriff ’s Office said Friday that 44-year-old Wayne Martin Walker may already have left the state. A warrant charging him with murder has been issued. Deputies say Walker lived with the baby’s 24year-old mother in Laurelville, south of Columbus. She called 911 early Wednesday to report that her infant son was unresponsive. The child suffered injuries consistent with shaken-baby syndrome. He died at a Columbus hospital Thursday. The sheriff’s office says Walker is from California and moved to the area several months ago. He is believed to be traveling south through Kentucky.

Fire cause unknown REPUBLIC (AP) — Investigators say extensive damage prevents them from determining what caused a fast-moving fire that killed five people and leveled a 130-year-old farmhouse in northwest Ohio. The state fire marshal’s office said Friday that investigators have ruled out a propane heating system and a wood burner as the cause of the blaze earlier this week outside the village of Republic, about 50 miles southeast of Toledo. Other possible causes included smoking or space heaters used in the home. Investigators found no evidence the fire was set intentionally. Authorities in Seneca County believe the five people who died were two adults and three children. The identification of the victims was left to the coroner, who wasn’t available for comment Friday.

Hayne disavowed any suggestion that the plot was a misguided prank by men upset with the government and corporations as the five became involved in the Occupy Cleveland movement. “I know what I did was dangerous,” said Hayne, tattoos showing from under a shortsleeve blue jail suit and ATHENS (AP) — Campus police and the state fire his buzz cut a marked difference from the long marshal’s office are investigating an overnight fire on hair in his arrest mug the roof of an Ohio University building as arson.

Foes of Cincinnati-area village’s traffic cameras sue Some 13,000 speeding citations were issued in the first two months or so after the cameras began. Elmwood Place has some 2,200 residents. Village Police Chief William Peskin said the legal action wasn’t a surprise, but declined further comment. He has said the traffic cameras are helping make the village near Cincinnati safer by deterring people from speeding through it. Revenue from the $105 tickets is shared between the village and a for-profit company that installs and operates such traffic camera systems around the country. Other Ohio courts have upheld the camera use, which nearly always draws irate local reac-

tions when municipalities install them. The city of Dayton has used cameras to catch people running red lights for nearly a decade, but it caused a stir earlier this year when it began towing the vehicles of motorists who weren’t paying multiple tickets. People here complain that they have gotten citations for going only a couple miles per hour

ELMWOOD PLACE (AP) — Businesspeople and residents of a southwest Ohio village have taken their opposition to new traffic cameras into court. Elmwood Place officials didn’t properly follow legal procedures in starting the camera enforcement aimed at speeders, according to a Hamilton County lawsuit filed Thursday. Twelve people who are suing also say the speeding ticket blitz that has followed is causing them harm, because the cameras are causing people to avoid the village and its businesses. “A good thing for Elmwood to do is say, ‘The people have spoken,’ and end this,” attorney Mike Allen told The Cincinnati Enquirer.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, Dec. 1, the 336th day of 2012. There are 30 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 1, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln sent his Second Annual Message to Congress, which was read aloud by the Secretary of the Senate. In it, Lincoln called for the abolition of slavery, saying that “in giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free,” and toward the end of his message, wrote: “Fellowcitizens, we can not escape history. We of this Congress and this Administration will be remembered in spite of ourselves.” On this date: ■ In 1824, the presidential election was turned over to the U.S. House of Representatives when a deadlock developed between John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William H. Crawford and Henry Clay. (Adams ended up the winner.) ■ In 1860, the Charles Dickens novel “Great Expectations” was first published in weekly serial form. ■ In 1921, the Navy flew the first nonrigid dirigible to use helium; the C7 traveled from Hampton Roads, Va., to Washington, D.C. ■ In 1934, Soviet communist official Sergei M. Kirov, an associate of Josef Stalin, was assassinated in Leningrad, resulting in a massive purge. ■ In 1941, Japan’s Emperor Hirohito approved waging war against the United States, Britain and the Netherlands after his government rejected U.S. demands contained in the Hull Note. ■ In 1942, nationwide gasoline rationing went into effect in the United States. ■ In 1952, the New York Daily News ran a front-page story on Christine Jorgensen’s sex-reassignment surgery with the headline, “Ex-GI Becomes Blonde Beauty”. ■ In 1955, Rosa Parks, a black seamstress, was arrested after refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Ala., city bus; the incident sparked a year-long boycott of the buses by blacks. ■ In 1969, the U.S. government held its first draft lottery since World War II. ■ In 1973, David BenGurion, Israel’s first prime minister, died in Tel Aviv at age 87. ■ In 1989, Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev met with Pope John Paul II at the Vatican.


Code finally cracked PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The obscure book’s margins are virtually filled with clusters of curious foreign characters — a mysterious shorthand used by 17th century religious dissident Roger Williams. For centuries the scribbles went undeciphered. But a team of Brown University students has finally cracked the code. Historians call the nowreadable writings the most significant addition to Williams scholarship in a generation or more. Williams is Rhode Island’s founder and best known as the first figure to argue for the principle of the separation of church and state that would later be enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

Israel moves to build 3,000 new settlement homes BY KARIN LAUB Associated Press JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel responded swiftly Friday to U.N. recognition of a Palestinian state, revealing it will build 3,000 more homes for Jews on Israeli-occupied lands that the world body overwhelmingly said belong to the Palestinians. The plans also include future construction in a strategic area of the West Bank where critics have long warned that Jewish settlements would kill hopes for a viable Palestinian state. Israel’s moves served as a harsh reminder to Palestinians — euphoric over the U.N. upgrade — that while they now have a state on paper, most of it remains very much under Israeli control. “This is a doomsday scenario,” Daniel Seidemann of Ir Amim, a group that promotes coexistence in Jerusalem, said of the building plans.

Israel’s decision was bound to embarrass the United States, which was among just nine countries in the 193-member General Assembly to vote against accepting Palestine as a nonmember observer state. Accelerated settlement construction could also set a more confrontational tone as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas weighs his next moves. In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland criticized the Israeli announcement. “These actions are counterproductive and make it harder to resume direct negotiations or achieve a two-state solution,” she said. Friday’s decision was taken by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and eight senior Cabinet ministers, according to the Israeli news website Ynet. The plans include 3,000 new apartments in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, as well as preparations for new

construction in other large West Bank settlements, including Maaleh Adumim, near east Jerusalem, said an Israeli government official. Among the projects is an expansion of Maaleh Adumim, known as E-1, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the decision with reporters. Successive U.S. administrations have pressured Israel not to build in E-1 because it would effectively cut off east Jerusalem from the West Bank, and split the northern part of the territory from the southern part. Israel has said in the past it envisions 3,500 apartments there. “E-1 will be the death of the two-state solution,” said Seidemann, referring to the establishment of a state of Palestine alongside Israel. “If the pronouncements are to be treated seriously, we are months away from the implementation of E-1. This is very serious and very problematic.”

WikiLeaks suspect made noose BY DAVID DISHNEAU Associated Press FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — As a military prosecutor held up a knotted bedsheet in court, Pfc. Bradley Manning acknowledged on Friday that he fashioned a noose and contemplated suicide shortly after his arrest on charges of engineering the biggest leak of classified material in U.S. history. The pretrial testimony appeared to support the military’s argument that it was trying to protect the former Army intelligence analyst from harming himself by taking away all his clothes, keeping him in strict isolation and shackling him when he was outside his cell. Manning’s lawyers argue that the conditions he experienced for nine months at the Marine brig in Quantico, Va., amounted to illegal punishment, lasting well past the time he was having suicidal thoughts, and that the charges against him should be dropped as a result. On Friday, prosecutor Maj. Ashden Fein produced a knotted, peach-colored sheet from an evidence box on the prosecution table and held it up, displaying a loop in the fabric. “You made a noose out of this?” he asked Manning. “Yes,” the soldier replied. Manning, 24, said he fashioned the noose while being held in Kuwait soon after he was accused in May 2010 of leaking reams of military and diplomatic documents to the website WikiLeaks. He said his time in Kuwait was the lowest he felt during his entire confinement. When he was transferred to the brig at Quantico in July 2010, he said, he wrote on his intake form that he was “always planning and never acting” on suicidal thoughts. He was classified a suicide risk for eight days, then upgraded to the lessrestrictive “prevention of injury” status.

MARK AND Cindy Hill hold a Powerball check with three of their four children, Jarod (left), Cody, and 6-year-old Jaiden, in Dearborn, Mo., Friday.

Missouri lottery winners want to live normally BY MARIA SUDEKUM Associated Press DEARBORN, Mo. (AP) — To announce one of the biggest events of their lives together, Cindy and Mark Hill returned to the place where it all began — the high school where they became sweethearts in the 1970s. Surrounded by family and friends, the two were introduced Friday as winners in this week’s huge Powerball lottery — an extraordinary stroke of luck that gives them half of the $588 million jackpot. The nostalgic high school homecoming seemed to reflect the couple’s hopes of staying true to their roots and living simply, at least as simply as possible for winners of one of the biggest lottery prizes in history. “We will still be going down

to the corner cafe for breakfast or fish day. I can guarantee you,” Cindy Hill said. “You know it’s just us. We’re just normal human beings. We’re as common as anybody. We just have a little bit more money.” The Hills, who have three grown sons and a 6-year-old daughter, said they don’t play the lottery regularly. They spent $10 on five tickets with random numbers. The result: After taxes, they will take home a lump sum of $136.5 million. “We’re still stunned by what’s happened,” said Hill, a former office manager who was laid off in 2010. “It’s surreal.” The other winning ticket was sold in Fountain Hills, Ariz., near Phoenix. No one has come forward with it yet, lottery officials said. Joining the Hills at the news conference were their children, with the youngest, Jaiden, sit-

OBAMA nearly $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue over 10 years, $600 billion in savings from changes in mandatory spending programs including Medicare, and $200 billion in spending ranging from public works projects to help for the unemployed and struggling homeowners, according to administration officials. Republicans rejected the offer as unreasonable. Republicans have said they are open to new tax revenue but not higher rates. Obama said he believed both parties “can and will work together” to reach an agreement to get its long-term deficit under control “in a way that’s balanced and is fair.” Obama spoke at the Rodon Group manufacturing facility, showcasing the company as an example of a business that depends on middle-class consumers during the holiday season. The company manufactures parts for K’NEX Brands, a construction toy company whose products include Tinkertoy, K’NEX Building Sets and Angry Birds Building Sets. The road

When asked what she wanted for Christmas, the little girl said simply: “Pony.” Friday’s news conference made official what just about everyone in the town of 500 north of Kansas City already knew, thanks in part to a Facebook posting by Mark Hill, said their son Cody. At first, the elder Hill told his son about the winning ticket but instructed him not to share the news with anyone. Cody Hill said he went to work and heard people commenting about how one of the winning tickets came from a local store. He said nothing. But then a relative told him to look at his dad’s Facebook page, where his father had announced the family’s good fortune.

From Page 1 trip was part of a dual White House strategy of having the president’s team meet with members of Congress while Obama travels the country to pressure Congress to act. The president joked that he’s keeping his own “naughty and nice list” for members of Congress — and only some would get a K’NEX set for Christmas. Administration officials said the White House offer, presented to Hill Republicans by Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, constituted much of what Obama has previously suggested in budget proposals and during the campaign. Under the administration’s plan, the new tax revenue would include $950 billion generated by raising taxes on families with incomes over $250,000 and by closing certain tax loopholes. The remainder would be achieved through an overhaul of the tax system next year and would not become effective until 2014. The proposal, which the administration has also described to business and labor leaders, would require Congress and the White House to identify a “down payment”

of cuts and tax loophole closings by the end of this year that would buy Congress and the president time to negotiate a tax overhaul and changes in entitlement programs between now and Aug. 1. One new feature in the Geithner plan is a call for increasing the nation’s debt limit without the need for congressional approval. Under last year’s debt ceiling deal, Obama simply had to notify Congress that he was raising the debt ceiling, a move that could be blocked only if both houses of Congress passed resolutions of disapproval that Obama could veto. The administration wants a permanent extension of the debt ceiling with a similar legislative arrangement and with no offsetting spending cuts, as demanded by Republicans. One administration official said Obama’s must-have positions are expirations of the Bush era tax cuts for high earners and the inclusion of the debt limit in the deal. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to describe publicly the state of negotiations.

property owners who live around the Auglaize River basin. Costs should average between $1 and $8 an acre. The whole project is estimated to cost around $776,000. “There will be a one-time payment at the time of construction, and it will show on their tax bill in January,” said Dan Ellerbrock, assistant drainage technician for the Allen Soil and Water Conservation District.

He said he believes the logjam the commissioners saw on Thursday could take more than two weeks for the contractor to clear alone. Areas will be cleared by hand, with men using cables and chainsaws to clear the mess. Once things start up in the spring, workers will begin at the PutnamAllen county line and move south, stretching about 60 miles, and ending at the Allen-Hardin county line.

REPLAY 50 years ago Dec. 1, 1962 Dorothy Pohlman returned to the better-than-600 class again the other night during the New Bremen Ladies round at Ray Ann Lanes. Rolling a splendid 601 for her fifth 600-plus of the current season, Dorothy was helped by a 213 game.

25 years ago Dec. 1, 1987 The body of the animal was termed “small” for having such a magnificent rack but the 20point buck brought down by Ralph Stallard of Sidney still highlighted the opening day harvest of the deer gun season. It took several shots to bring the animal down and it was the first buck Stallard had ever harvested.

Minster rallies past Cavs BY MATT ZIRCHER Through most of three quarters, Lehman appeared to be in control with a 49-35 lead. The rest of the game, however, was all Minster as the Wildcats outscored the Cavaliers 28-11 over the final 10 minutes to pull out a 63-60 victory in the season opener bothboys basketball for teams Friday night at Lehman. Neither team had more than a four-point advantage until Jackson Frantz hit two foul shots to put the Cavs up 20-14 with 6:28 remaining in the second quarter. Five more points from the sophomore guard pushed the margin to 27-18 and Lehman led 37-25 at the half by scoring the final seven points of the quarter. The shooting percentages were nearly similar in the first half as the Cavaliers shot 43 percent and the Wildcats 42 percent. Lehman, though, attempted 11 more shots thanks to a 23-14 rebounding edge, including 123 on the offensive end, and was 10 of 17 at the foul line compared to seven of 11 for Minster. “We did a lot of good things offensively in the first half,” said Lehman coach Isaiah Williams. “We took good shots and did a good job of getting them in foul trouble and going to the line.” “Give Lehman credit. They came out the aggressor and did pretty much anything they wanted to offensively in the first half,” said Minster coach Mike Lee. “We did a rotten job on the glass, but we made some adjustments and played much better in the second half.” Connor Richard was fouled on a three attempt and hit all three foul shots to start the third quarter to complete a Cavalier 10-0 run and the Lehman lead grew to 47-30 on a Frantz three with 4:37 left

MINSTER’S ADAM Niemeyer goes up against James Rego of Lehman under the bucket Friday at Lehman in boys high school basketball action. in the period. The difference was still 14 at 49-35 following a John Husa jumper at the 1:50 mark, but that’s when the Wildcats began their comeback. Devon Poeppelman tallied the final six points of the stanza to cut the deficit to eight. A baseline jumper from Lehman’s Greg Spearman made it 53-47 at the 4:47 mark of the final quarter, but after Minster’s Ethan Wolf scored five consecutive points, the Wildcats extended the run to 13-0 and took the lead for

good on threes by Brandon Hoying and Adam Niemeyer, followed by a Niemeyer layup. Richard hit a three from the left corner to break the streak and Spearman made one of two at the foul line with 53 seconds left to make it 6057, but Lehman could take advantage of a Minster missed free throw to get closer. Hoying hit one of two at the stripe at the 22.8-second mark to make it a two-possession game, but the Cavaliers still had life as Spearman connected on a triple, again from the left corner, to cut the

deficit to one with 13.7 seconds remaining and had the ball after a Wildcat turnover with seven seconds to play. Lehman, though, committed a turnover trying the get the ball up the court quickly and after Niemeyer made two foul shots with two seconds to go, a desperation three by the Cavaliers at the buzzer went long. “We have some senior experience and that really came through for us down the stretch,” said Lee.

Flyers repeat, win 28-21 thriller Winning score comes with 21 seconds left MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) — Hunter Wilker had not practiced even one play at running back all year. Pressed into service due to injuries, the freshman wide receiver ran for three touchdowns to lead Maria Stein Marion Local to its sixth state football championship, a 2821 win over Newark Catholic on Friday. Wilker scored on a 1-yard run with 21 seconds left to put the Flyers (13-2) ahead. Newark Catholic (12-3), seeking its ninth state title, incredibly drove into position to tie it, but Nate Nagel broke up a potential touchdown at the goal line with no time left. “This is the toughest game I’ve ever coached,” said Tim Goodwin, whose record at the small school from western Ohio improved to 154-40. “Of all the championships, this was the hardest, without a doubt.” The Flyers repeated as champions despite losing starting tailback Jacy Goettemoeller to a leg injury on the first drive of the game and his replacement Aaron Nietfeld with a shoulder problem in the third quarter. “Losing Jacy took the wind out of our sails, but the kids stayed focused, worked hard, and did the job,” Goodwin said.

MARION LOCAL'S Hunter Wilker, center, squeezes through the Newark Catholic defense to score a touchdown in the fourth quarter in the Ohio high school Division VI state football championship in Massillon Friday. “Hunter was a running back in junior high. We played him at wide receiver because we had other runners ahead of him. He hadn’t practiced at tailback all year, but came in and didn’t miss a beat. “And what can I say about Nate? He had not played much at all, and they went at him with the game on the line. He made the play. That’s not coaching. That’s character.” Chayce Croch threw two TD passes and had a 5-yard TD run for Newark Catholic. “We didn’t win, but we gave every fiber that we possess,”

Green Wave coach Bill Franks said. Franks was choked with emotion as he spoke of Newark Catholic’s first run to the title game since winning its eighth championship in 2007. “I love these kids,” Franks said, fighting back tears. “To get here was a wonderful ride.” Marion Local has won all six of its championships since 2000. Newark Catholic dominated in the 1980s, winning five titles and getting three runner-up finishes in that decade.

“These guys are the new giants and we’re the old giants,” Franks said. “But we haven’t gone away.” Wilker scored from 6 yards 19 seconds left in the first half. Moved to running back after Nietfeld went down, Wilker picked his way through the right side for an 11-yard TD with 18 seconds left in the third quarter for a 21-14 lead. Newark Catholic tied it at 21 on a 20-yard pass from Croch to Kevin Bourne, who finished with 121 yards on seven receptions overall.

Tiger defense stymies Houston in 39-26 win JACKSON CENTER — What looked like a promising night for the Wildcats Houston turned into a nightmare, courtesy of the Jackson Center defense. The Tigers spotted the Wildcats a 7-2 lead at the start of the game, the held them to just 19 points the rest of the way in winning 39-26 in County boys basketball action here Friday. Jackson, 1-0, will host Indian Lake Tuesday. Houston tries for its first win tonight at home against Newton. Houston shot a respectable 45 percent from the field, but could get only 20 shots off the entire night, hitting

nine of them. “It was tremendous team defense and that was the key,” said Jackson coach Scott Elchert. “We knew what kind of player (Jesse) Phlipot is but he didn’t touch the ball without really having to work for it.” Houston sprinted to the 7-2 lead, which included a dunk by Phlipot. But once the Tigers got their feet under them, they took control and never relinquished it. By the end of the opening quarter, the Tigers had gone ahead 13-9, and they extended the lead to 27-16 at the half. The Tigers then did an excellent job of main-

taining that kind of lead the rest of the way. “Gavin Wildermuth really got us going,” said Elchert. “He hit two threes in the first quarter and had 10 of our 13 points. “There’s no doubt that Alex (Meyer) was the focus of their attention, and we don’t mind that. We feel we have a lot of other weapons.” Wildermuth finished with 15 points to lead the Tigers and Meyer added 12. Phlipot had 13 for Houston. Trey Elchert had five assists for the Tigers, an impressive number considering the low number of points scored. And Wildermuth and Levi

Winner both had four steals. Jackson Center shot 43 percent from the field, connecting on 15 of 35 shots. The Tigers also forced the Wildcats into 19 turnovers. Houston (26) Braun 3-2-9; Sarver 0-1-1; Ritchie 1-0-2; Martin 0-1-1; Phlipot 5-2-13. Totals: 9-626.

Redskins whip Knoxville 51-34 NEW KNOXVILLE — The Fort Loramie Redskins got the season off to an excellent start, winning in a tough place to play Friday, 51-34 over New Knoxville. The Redskins, 1-0, will try to make it two straight tonight when they host Ansonia. The two teams were deadlocked at 9-9 after a quarter, but Fort Loramie took over from there, holding the Rangers to just 10 points total in the second and third quarters. The Redskins took a 21-15 lead at the half, then opened up a 34-19 bulge after three periods. “Before the game we talked about coming out and playing with a lot of energy,” said Loramie head coach Karl Ratermann. “I was pleasantly surprised with how well we played defensively. We got the lead in the second quarter, and the kids just continued to guard hard. And we were patient offensively

and made good decisions.” The score was deadlocked at 15-all when Loramie hit the first of back-to-back threepointers. The second one came just before the halftime buzzer and gave the Redskins a big dose of momentum heading to the locker room. Seth Guillozet led the Redskins with 18 points and Troy Benanzer added 14. Jake Allen led the Rangers with 11 and Andrew Arnett added 10. Fort Loramie (51) Guillozet 7-2-18; Fullenkamp 0-3-3; McGee 2-1-5; Ta. Rittenhouse 1-0-3; Frilling 1-2-4; Benanzer 6-0-14; Kazmaier 1-1-3; Pleiman 0-1-1. Totals: 18-10-51.

Reserve score: Loramie 47, NK 44.

MINSTER “They’ve been through situations like this before in basketball and in other sports and once we all got on the same page, things started clicking. It’s easier to shoot the basketball when you have confidence and we started to get that confidence in the fourth quarter.” “You have to play four quarters and we didn’t do that tonight,” said Williams. “We got a little individual instead of running the offense and we rushed some shots. We have some young guys out there and we’re learning.” Minster hit eight of 10 shots in the fourth quarter in shooting 54 percent in the second half and 49 percent overall while Lehman shot 39 percent in the second half and 42 percent for the game. Niemeyer led the Wild-

FAIRLAWN’S ANTHONY Gillem flies to the hoop in front of Anna’s Brad Boyd in County boys basketball action Friday at Anna.

Everett leads Jets over Anna ANNA — It was a successful homecoming for new Fairlawn head coach Justin Tidwell. The Anna graduate took his Jets to his alma mater and sprung a 6752 surprise on the Rockets in County boys basketball action Friday night. The Jets take their 10 mark up against Triad Tuesday night at home. Anna tries for its first win Friday at Houston. Fairlawn shot out of the blocks to a 21-point opening quarter and all the Rockets could do was try to keep them within striking distance. “They got off to a great start,” said Anna coach Nate Barhorst. “We got Chandon (Williams) in foul trouble early and that hurt, so we were just trying to keep it close.” The Jets were up 2113 after a quarter and maintained that eightpoint lead at the half. But they increased it to 13 points after three periods and the Rockets couldn’t recover. One of the reasons Anna was unable to rally was the play of Fairlawn senior Trey Everett. “His shooting has really come around,” said Barhorst of Everett. “He took control of the game.

Everett finished with a double-double of 26 points, which included two dunks, and 11 rebounds. He was 10-for15 from the floor. Anthony Gillem, the other half of Fairlawn’s lethal one-two punch, finished with 13 points and Joey Cockroft added 12 for the Jets. Anna had three in double figures also, with Chandon Williams and Joel Albers both going for 17 and Carter Bensman 12. “It came down to transition defense,” said Barhorst. “We just didn’t get back and they beat us down the floor. And we didn’t box out and rebound.” Fairlawn doubled Anna on the boards, 3216.

Trojans to play for tourney title ZANESFIELD — Botins held off Riverside to advance to tonight’s championship game of the Ben Logan Tip-Off Tournament. The Trojans led by 10 at the half and 16 in the third quarter, but the Pirates clawed back. But in the end, the Trojans came away with a 52-48 victory in boys basketball action. Riverside meets BenLogan at 6 tonight in the consolation game, and Botkins and Mechanicsburg follow in the championship. “We had it up to 16 but they kept whittling away at the lead,” said Botkins coach Brett

Meyer. “They battled us right down to the end.” Josh Schwartz poured in 19 and Heath Geyer 14 for Botkins. Geyer also had eight rebounds. Dalton Bollinger had 14 to lead the Pirates.

ical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, suggests that telestroke is cost-effective for rural hospitals that don’t have a neurologist or stroke specialist on staff around the clock and provides greater access to the clot-busting treatment, tPA. Ohio State’s stroke team, which includes critical-care physicians and vascular neurosurgeons, is available any time, day or night. The window of time

for successfully treating stroke victims is short, usually less than three hours. Doctors feel the use of real-time technology will save more lives in rural areas of the state. The goals of the telestroke program are to: 1. Increase access to advanced stroke care in underserved regions of Ohio 2. Improve EMS response and recognition of stroke signs and symptoms

3. Enhance quality and efficiency within the health care system. As a primary stroke center in the state, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center was the first academic medical center in Ohio to go live with telestroke and the first health system in Ohio to extend their network beyond affiliate hospitals. Ohio State serves as the hub of the telestroke network and provides other hospitals with rapid access

to board certified vascular neurologists who can provide real-time consultation to physicians at the proximity hospitals using video equipment, CT scans and the web based software. Utilization of a stroke telemedicine network enables hospitals, particularly those in rural areas, to have real-time access to the same expertise and protocols as available at a tertiary care center and for virtually no additional cost.

Honda gets a do-over; revamps Civic to fix flaws BY TOM KRISHER Associated Press Honda has made a quick U-turn. Just 19 months after its Civic compact hit showrooms and was slammed by critics, the company has revamped the car, giving it a sportier look and upgrading the interior. It’s an unusual and costly do-over. But Honda — among the auto industry’s most highly-regarded brands — was worried the car’s flaws would hurt sales and market share, analysts say. The 2013 version goes on sale Thursday, and Honda has given it a sportier profile, replaced its chintzy dashboard and made the ride quieter. The revamp comes to market in about half the time it normally takes, and shows just how concerned Honda is about falling behind rivals.

‘Slam-dunk’ “The new consumer coming to the marketplace looking for a compact car doesn’t think the Civic is a slam-dunk anymore,” says Jesse Toprak, vice president of market intelligence for the auto pricing website. The company misjudged the small-car market when it rolled out the Civic in April of last year, analysts say. Smallcar buyers used to tolerate cheap materials, noisy interiors, and boxy styling just to get high gas mileage. But they now expect their gas-sippers to have a quiet ride, crisp handling and plush seating. The 2012 Civic lacked those refinements. It was so noisy, for example, that “I kept trying to put the windows up,” recalls IHS Automotive analyst Rebecca Lindland, who says that competition caught Honda off-guard.

Demand high To be sure, criticism of the 2012 Civic hasn’t dented demand. Sales of the car have risen to 255,000 through October, up 39 percent from last year. The car has passed the aging Toyota Corolla and the Chevrolet Cruze to become the nation’s top-selling compact. But the increase came mainly because Civics were in short supply last year following an earthquake in Japan. Loyal customers delayed purchases until the Civic returned, Toprak says. The Civic also is selling well because of discounts, he says. Dealers are knock-

Greenville hospital plans hospice unit

GREENVILLE — State of the Heart Hospice and Wayne HealthCare of Greenville have announced plans to open a unit for State of the Heart Hospice patients at the hospital. Officials said they hope the new hospice inpatient unit, which will have up to five beds designated for patients, will be open in early 2013. “State of the Heart Hospice has been providing care to area patients for more than 30 years,” stated Ted Bauer, executive director of the nonprofit agency. “Many hospices have an inpatient unit, and we have realized for some time that it is something really needed in our community.” He said renovation and refurbishing of the unit will begin immediately. State of the Heart, with offices in Greenville, Coldwater, and Portland, Ind., cares for patients and families in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are confronting a life-limiting illness. “The unit at Wayne HealthCare would be available for patients in our entire service area,” Bauer added. While hospice care focuses on keeping patients at home where they are most comfortable, individual cases sometimes call for an inpatient setting. Wayne HealthCare President and CEO Wayne AP Photo/Paul Sancya Deschambeau stated, “State of the Heart Hospice A 2013 Honda Civic is shown in Detroit Tuesday.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, December 1, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today you are tempted to make promises that you can’t keep. You might find yourself saying something before you realize that it’s beyond your ability to deliver. (Oops.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be careful how you handle your money today, because you could go overboard. You might give away too much; you might spend too much; you might make an unreasonable commitment hoping to earn more. Caution! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t tell fisherman stories, and don’t exaggerate too much today, because you will be tempted to do this. One thing leads to another, and before you know it, you’re stringing out a yarn. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel pleased with yourself today. (There’s nothing wrong with that.) But complacency can lead to inertia, where you just can’t get off the couch. Be careful. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) In your desire to impress others, you might promise too much to someone. Your efforts to enthuse someone might stretch the truth a little, ya think? VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Family discussions will be happy and upbeat today. Nevertheless, be realistic and keep your feet on the ground, especially if others are asking for a favor. Just do what you can. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a busy, active day for you. Short trips and conversations with everyone will appeal. You’re over the moon about something and want to share your enthusiasm with everyone. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The only thing that should be in hot water is a teabag. Keep this in mind before you make financial promises to anyone. Don’t stretch things. Deal with reality, and tell the truth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You feel cheerful and optimistic today. This could be why you are tempted to spend too much money on indulging in luxuries and other pleasant goodies. Ah, the good life! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Don’t make promises you can’t keep at work today. Be reasonable with deadlines that you give yourself or others. Make health guidelines realistic for yourself as well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) It’s a well-known fact that abstinence is easier than moderation. Today you’re tempted to go overboard when gambling, taking chances and flirting. Don’t do anything you’ll regret later. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be realistic in discussions with bosses, parents and VIPs. Don’t try to impress them with impossible deadlines. YOU BORN TODAY You are physically dynamic and have enormous power, no matter what your size. Your powerful energy immediately influences your surroundings. You work tirelessly to hone your skills. You are personally strong, and you respect the strength of others. When provoked, you rarely back down. Your year ahead will focus strongly on partnerships and close friendships. Birthdate of: Lucy Liu, actress; Jim Cuddy, singer/songwriter; Maria Callas, opera diva. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

This is not the case with your wife. There is no cure. Diuretics like Lasix don’t work for more than a few days. Surgery tends to make it worse. But support stockings and elevation are helpful, and so is exercise. Support stockings need to be the appropriate size and strength, and that means careful measurement and possibly custom-made stockings. Elevation needs to take place at least three times a day, and the legs should be raised above the heart. This is more than propping your feet on a chair; your wife must lie down. And exercise uses muscles to take fluid out of the legs and bring it back to the circulation. Finally, a supplement called horse chestnut extract has been shown to

25 years Dec. 1, 1987 The Sidney Zoning Board of Appeals Monday afternoon narrowly approved a proposal to allow a solid waste transfer station and city officials said residents may have to pay 54 percent more to have their trash picked up. By a 3-2 vote at the special meeting, the board granted a conditional use permit to establish a transfer station at the old incinerator building at the south end of Shie Avenue. The City of Sidney requested the approval under its contingency plan for handling the city’s solid waste. The contingency plan would be used should the Shelby County Commissioners be unable to find a solution in the near future to the solid waste problem in light of the impending closing of the Shelby County landfill. ––––– These news items from past issues of the Sidney Daily News are compiled by the Shelby County Historical Society (498-1653) as a public service to the community.

She paid me a month later, and I deposited her check as soon as I could get to my bank, which was three weeks later. When the check went through, she attacked me because she said it drained her account! I apologized, but told her I was upset that she was making it seem like it was my fault. I think that if someone is low on funds, the person should be more diligent in balancing his or her checkbook. Had I known she had money problems, I would have waited to deposit her check. It has been months, and my once best friend still

won’t speak to me. Was I wrong? — AT FAULT? IN KENTUCKY DEAR AT FAULT?: No, you were not. It was your friend’s responsibility to make sure there were enough funds in her account to cover the check she gave you. She may be embarrassed, which is why she doesn’t want to talk to you. People who are angry at themselves sometimes blame others. It’s a sign of immaturity. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating “Kristen” for seven months. She is great as far as personality, physical chemistry, similar likes and dislikes, and patience go. She is ALMOST everything I have ever wanted in a girl. However, I have never called her “beautiful,” although she has made a couple of “fishing” comments to try to get me

to say it. In my eyes, that would be a lie. Kristen is attractive, but not beautiful. I have always thought that anyone I’m planning on spending the rest of my life with would be “beautiful” to ME, and I’d let her know accordingly. I can’t discuss this with family or friends because I’m afraid they will think I’m shallow. Your thoughts? — NOT SHALLOW IN PHOENIX DEAR NOT SHALLOW: Candidly, I think that in spite of all of her wonderful qualities, Kristen is not “the one” for you. And you are not “the one” for her because what she needs is validation you can’t give her. Women need to feel beautiful in the eyes of the men they love, and because you plan to spend your life with someone who is beautiful “to you,” you should both move on.
