Terry Fator loves what he does. And why shouldn’t he? He has a top-rated show on the Las Vegas Strip, a best-selling book and a growing legion of fans who flock to his shows around the world. Two weeks from now, the multi-talented ventriloquist and entertainer will return to Troy for his second appearance at historic Hobart Arena. The Dallas native was brimming with enthusiasm during a recent phone interview with the Troy Daily News, touching on topics ranging from his early days in show business and his America’s Got Talent win to his legion of loyal fans and headlining at the Mirage. “I do remember Troy, and that’s one of the reasons we’re coming back,” Fator said. “We had See FATOR/Page 3A

AG to file suit against former sheriff BY KATHY LEESE Former Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel is denying that the county or state have a right to recoup money paid him after he was suspended from office while being investigated for possible wrongdoing. The Ohio Attorney General’s office plans to answer this challenge Kimpel by filing a lawsuit against Kimpel. Kimpel’s attorney, Michael Rumer of Rumer and Maisch Co., LLC, Lima, responded to a letter from the Attorney General’s Office requesting the former sheriff reimburse Shelby County for salary and benefits he was paid during his suspension from

office or work out a repayment plan in lieu of legal action. In the letter, Kimpel was warned that “we stand ready to file suit” if he was unwilling to repay the designated amount. Jill Del Greco, public information officer for the AG’s office, confirmed that the AG is in the process of filing the lawsuit. Rumer had responded to the AG’s request by denying there was a legal right to recoup the salary. Rumer referred to Ohio Revised Code 3.16, which was used in the suspension of Kimpel from office and marked the first time in Ohio that a sheriff was removed under that law. That law states that a “political subdivision” such as the Shelby County Commissioners, “may file a civil action in the appropriate court to recover from any former public official of the political subdivision the amount of compensation paid to that former public official in accordance with this division from the date of the former public official’s suspension to the date the former public official pleads guilty to or is found guilty of any felony with which the former public official was charged.” In the letter, Rumer reviewed events leading to Kimpel’s suspension and conviction on an amended felony charge of unauthorized use of See SUIT/Page 3A

MULTI-TALENTED ENTERTAINER Terry Fator — shown here with Wrex the Safety Expert — will return to Troy for an 8 p.m. performance Dec. 14 at Troy’s Hobart Arena.

HONOR 1966. During his fourplus decades in various capacities, the bank grew with several new facilities and became a publicly traded company prior to a successful buyout. Millhoff was also involved in community service and philanthropy endeavors. Dr. Bill Ross III, class of 1965, holds degrees from a trio of universities including Urbana, Eastern Kentucky, and Southern Mississippi. He taught a single year at the former Parkwood Junior High School in Sidney before entering the Marine Corps and returning to Sidney High School to resume and complete a lengthy and distinguished career in teaching and coaching. Upon retirement he

million years thought it would turn into what it has turned into,” he said. “When I was on the show, I expected to be on there two or three episodes and be done. Once I got on the show, my goal was just to get to the next week. I never thought about winning. And then, when I got on the final episode, I was 100 percent convinced I was not going to win, so when he said my name, nobody was more surprised than me.” Within a year, Fator inked a deal for a longterm, multi-million dollar deal in Las Vegas. “It’s has been phenomenal. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it,” said Fator, adding that he recently signed an extension that will keep him performing at the Mirage through 2016. “We have been one of the top-selling shows in town since we opened and we have not seen a dip in the numbers, even during the recession. “The people of the U.S. and the world have been supportive of my show in the most incredible way, and I am humbled and honored that they would do that,” he continued. “One of the reasons why, I think, is that I have such a commitment to keeping up the quality of the show, and making sure that the show is different. If you come out to my show in Vegas, every single year you’re going to see different stuff, different characters and new routines. We already have a joke about the General Petreaus scandal, so we keep up on everything

that happens so that the show stays fresh and exciting.” And that means more than just taking center stage with his diverse lineup of puppet “costars.” “One thing people might not understand about my show is that it’s not just a typical ventriloquist show. My show is a full-entertainment show,” he said. “Our new slogan is ‘The Voice of Entertainment,’ because, not only are you going to see ventriloquism, but you’re going to see comedy and singing … it’s just one of those shows that comes along once in a generation. It has something for everyone.” Although people may expect his Vegas-style show to have an adult flavor, Fator is quick to point out that it’s family friendly. “That is exactly what I shot for when I was putting my show together. We have jokes geared toward an adult intellect, but every single one of them has an ‘out’ — there’s an explanation for the kids if they don’t understand it,” he said. “We don’t swear or do anything that is blatantly off-color. I want people to bring their kids, themselves, their grandparents … and their great-grandparents.” Tickets can be obtained through the Hobart Arena website,, or by calling the arena box office at 339-2911.

a computer or telecommunications device in Shelby County Common Pleas Court. But Rumer argues that Kimpel should not have to repay the money because the suspension was sought in response to a sexual battery charge in Auglaize County, which Rumer states was later dropped as part of a plea bargain. Because the suspension was based on the Auglaize County case and not on the Shelby County case, and the Auglaize County case was later dismissed, Rumer stated, “at no time did the State file a motion to request amendment of the charges pending under O.R.C. 3.16 proceedings to include Shelby County.” In his response to the AG, Rumer further stated that he believes Kimpel is not responsible to pay the money back since that money could only be recouped under the Auglaize County case which was suspended. “The suspension request to the Chief Justice (of the Ohio Supreme Court), the notice/request to Dean Kimpel, the consent notice and the con-

sent judgment entry all make reference only to the charge of sexual battery. Therefore, the felony for which our client voluntar(ily) consented to a suspension and upon which the Special Commission issued its final determination was dismissed.” Rumer stated, “we believe that the recoupment provisions of O.R.C. 3.16 (E) are not applicable ... and our client is not required to Shelby reimburse County for salary paid during his suspension.” Rumer noted that the statute under which Kimpel was suspended is “unique” and creates some “interesting legal questions.” According to the AG’s letter to Kimpel, they are seeking reimbursement to Shelby County for salary, employee OPERS retirement contributions and health insurance that was paid out for the former sheriff. The breakdown of money the AG is seeking includes dates from Oct. 6, 2011 through Dec. 31, 2011, with a salary of $163.12 per day for 87 days for a total of $14,191.44; employee

OPERS contributions at 18.10 percent for a total of $2,568.65, and health insurance for October through December for $3,800.25 or $1,266.75 per month for a total for 2011 of $20,560.34. From Jan. 1, 2012 through April 13, 2012, the AG’s office is seeking repayment of a salary of $163.12 per day for 103 days for a total of $16,801.36; employee OPERS contriat 18.10 butions percent for a total of $3,041.05 and health insurance for January through April 2012 for a total of $5,257 or $1,314.25 per month a total of for $25,099.41. The AG’s office was asking for a total of $45,659.75 to be repaid by Kimpel prior to the time of the lawsuit. In the AG’s letter to Kimpel it is stated, “based upon the plain language of O.R.C. 3.16 (E), Shelby County is entitled to recover monies paid to or on your behalf from October 6, 2011 through April 13, 2012 …. Shelby County is seeking reimbursement of these funds.”

such a phenomenal response (the first time). People in Troy loved the show, so when they asked me if I wanted to come back I said ‘yes’ because it would be an incredible opportunity to show people in Troy the new show. Things have changed a lot since I was there.” Fator — whose Troy appearance is sandwiched between an engagement at the Mirage in Las Vegas and a casino gig in Canada — will bring a seven-piece band and all the glitz and glamor of The Strip for his Dec. 14 show in Troy, which is co-sponsored by the I-75 Newspaper Group and Hobart Arena. “The show is going to be completely different than the one they saw (in 2008). It’s a big-budget production, and I’m excited,” he said. “We have several new characters … and I can’t wait to show the people of Troy all of the new stuff. We’re pulling out all the stops.” It wasn’t too long ago that the 47-year-old entertainer was struggling to make a name for himself. Fator toiled for several years doing county fairs and corporate events before he took a shot at fame on America’s Got Talent in 2007. That “shot” changed his life. Fator won Season 2 of the popular competition, winning over fans with his combination of ventriloquism and celebrity impressions. “It was the most incredible, amazing experience that I could have ever had.

Home sales rise again COLUMBUS — The Ohio Association of Realtors reported the number of single-family homes and condominiums put under agreement in October rose for the 18th consecutive month compared to the results from the prior year. “The Ohio housing marketplace is continuing its remarkable recovery from the economic challenges from a few years ago,” said Robert U. Miller, president of the Ohio Association of Realtors. “The fact that the number of homes put under contract in Octo-

ber increased for the 18th straight month is a clear indication that we’re making progress in establishing a solid foundation for a stable, sustainable and growing housing market throughout the Buckeye State.” Ohio’s October Pending Home Sales Index of 140.0, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, rose 25.9 percent from the October 2011 index score of 111.2. An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2008, which

marked the end of five consecutive record years for existing home sales and the onset of the recession. Activity levels in 2008 are reflective of a historically healthy, balanced market. The October 2012 pending sales index of 140.0 marks a 40 percent increase from the benchmark October 2008 index of 100. Additionally, the current results also are better than the PHSI marks posted during the month in Ohio in 2009 (114.3) and 2010 (80.8). A pending sale or a sale “under agreement”

is when the buyer and seller agree on terms of the sale of a home and have a signed purchase and sale agreement, but have yet to close and be recorded as such. OAR, the largest professional trade association in the state with 26,000 members, is the only organization that compiles this statewide information from selected Multiple Listing Services each month. The tracking of “pending sales” provides information about where the market is heading in coming months.

Campaign tops $1.4 million MARYSVILLE — Contributions from Honda associates, along with matching funds from the company, raised more than $1.4 million during the 2013 United Way campaign. The annual campaign solicits contributions from associates at Honda of America Mfg. Inc. and Honda Engineering North America Inc. to support numerous nonprofit agencies in local communities. This is the 18th consecutive year that associates and Honda of

America donations have exceeded the $1 million mark. Including the latest pledges for the coming year, cumulative contributions to United Way agencies since the Honda campaigns began in 1982 will exceed $33 million. “We have a strong team of associates at Honda who support United Way agencies through personal volunteering and by providing funding for their operations,” said Bobbie Jo Trittschuh, who man-

ages the United Way campaign at Honda of America. “In another outstanding effort, our associates are supporting hundreds of local agencies that, among many other things, provide educational programs for youth and care for people in crisis.” A large majority of Honda associates participated and the average pledge increased during the 2013 campaign. While the pledges have a significant impact in communities near Honda facilities, they also were broadly distributed into 59 of Ohio’s 88 counties, and 39 counties outside Ohio. “We know from working with local agencies that the needs for servAudiology Service. ices have grown during “This is especially im- these challenging times,” portant in noisy environments like a busy or at intersection, restaurants and concerts, where speech and ambient sound are often intermixed.” The new micro-Invisahearing aid is Beltone’s tiniest ever. The new device is work out of sight, completely hidden within the ear canal. It is custom tailored to match a patient’s ear anatomy for fit and comfort. “The Beltone microInvisais the perfect option for those who want to hear well, invisibly,” Hosfeld said. “It’s tiny, yet easy to use. And it’s a great option for firsttime hearing aid users.” Beltone Hearing & Audiology Service is located at 409 N. Main St.

Beltone introduces new products PIQUA — Beltone has introduced two new hearing aids that address the varied hearing and aesthetic needs of its patients. New Beltone Promise hearing aids are designed to work like natural ears because they constantly communicate with each other and automatically adjust to the user’s surroundings. “Beltone Promise technology is truly unique in that it allows each hearing aid to share information with the other and “self –adjust” to a new environment. This helps wearers focus on the speech they want to hear while staying aware of other sounds around them,” said Dr. Lucille P Hosfeld, CCCA, Audiologist with Beltone Hearing &

said Rick Schostek, senior vice president and Honda’s campaign cochairman. “In addition to their United Way contributions, many of our associates also are involved volunteering their time and unique talents to local organizations that help improve our communities and peoples’ lives.” Honda of America operates three plants in Ohio, including the Marysville Auto Plant in Union County, the Anna Engine Plant in Shelby County and the East Liberty auto Plant in Logan County. Honda engineering has operations at the Marysville and Anna locations. Associates at other Honda operations in Ohio also participate in local United Way campaigns.

Details revealed in Taser death Kennedy sworn in CINCINNATI (AP) — An unarmed, mentally ill Ohio man who died during a c o n frontation with police w a s shocked with a T a s e r stun gun Boucher s e v e n times, kicked and repeatedly hit with a baton, all mostly after he had fallen face-first onto cement and stopped moving, according to newly released court documents obtained by The Associated Press. Police in the Cincinnati suburb of Mason previously said only that 39-year-old Doug Boucher died after he was shocked by a Taser, but hadn’t revealed how many times or many other details surrounding the Dec. 13, 2009, incident, including the fact that an unresponsive Boucher was lying facedown on the ground for five of the seven stuns he received. Now lawyers for Boucher’s parents and the police department are preparing to square off in federal court in Cincinnati on Jan. 10. The department is pushing for the case to be dropped; Boucher’s parents want their lawsuit against them alleging excessive force and unreasonable seizure to move forward to a jury trial set for February. Hundreds of pages of newly filed court documents in the case reviewed by The Associated Press reveal the moments leading up to Boucher’s sudden death. Officers Daniel Fry and Sean McCormick were at a Mason conven-

ience store the night of Dec. 13, 2009, when the petite, 19-year-old clerk told them that a customer — a 6-foot-tall, 300-pound Boucher — had just made a lewd comment to her, had made the same comment to her earlier that day, and wanted him to leave, according to the officers’ version of events. When officers approached Boucher, a musician who had untreated bipolar disorder, they testified that Boucher repeatedly apologized and became nervous before they ordered him outside. When Boucher tried to get in his car to leave, McCormick said that he approached him from behind and put a hand on his shoulder. Boucher then “spins around pretty quickly, and he clenches his fists and he just screams at me,” to leave him alone, McCormick said. That’s when McCormick pulled his Taser and ordered Fry to handcuff Boucher. Fry said he got the cuffs on his left wrist before Boucher spun around and punched the officer in the head twice. A wrestling match ensued before McCormick yelled for Fry to move and shocked Boucher in the chest with the Taser, causing him to fall to his knees. The officers say Boucher then spotted the clerk outside, got up and ran toward her while yelling. That’s when Fry pulled his Taser, zapping Boucher in the back and causing him to fall hard, face-first into the pavement, landing with his hands underneath him and out of the officers’ view. Although Boucher wasn’t moving, McCormick testified that he kicked him and hit him with his baton, and or-

dered Fry to stun him twice more with the Taser. Although Fry testified that he only remembers stunning Boucher three times, information downloaded from the device showed he used the Taser on him six times in a 75-second period, five times after he had stopped moving. A third officer, Bradley Walker, testified that he when he arrived at the scene, he saw McCormick hit a motionless Boucher with the baton about five times and saw Fry use the Taser on him once. Walker moved in to handcuff Boucher when McCormick stopped him and told him to point his gun at him instead, he said. “He looked at me and he said, ‘We might have to shoot this guy,’” Walker said. “So I took that as he was posing a serious threat.” Soon after, the officers pulled Boucher’s arms out to his sides, handcuffed him twice, patted him down and turned him over, only to find that he wasn’t breathing and his face was covered in blood. Boucher was dead minutes later despite attempts to revive him. Butler County Deputy Coroner James Swinehart found that Boucher did not have alcohol or drugs in his system and died from the fall, although he said he couldn’t rule out that the seven Taser stuns were a factor. At their recent depositions, both Fry and McCormick defended their actions, saying their use of force was appropriate, given that they couldn’t see Boucher’s hands, that he had punched one of them and was running toward the clerk. “This is bang, bang, bang. We were just trying to quickly de-escalate this combative suspect and put him in

handcuffs,” McCormick said. “There was just no way I was going to get close, to have another officer get assaulted … Too much had happened for me to in there and grab hold of him.” Neither officer was disciplined, and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation cleared both of wrongdoing. Jennifer Branch, the Boucher family’s attorney, argues that the situation never should have happened, that Boucher should have been allowed to get in his car and leave because making a lewd comment is not a criminal offense. But even after the alleged assault on Fry, Branch argues that the use of force was inappropriate. “You cannot kick someone, tase them five times, and beat them with a baton if they’re passive,” she said. “At the moment that Doug was on the ground, not moving, not hitting, not kicking, not threatening, not running, not screaming — just failing to pull his hands out to be cuffed — the officers have a duty to look at the situation and say, ‘Huh, maybe I shouldn’t be using force here.’” Bill Flynn, a retired 30-year police officer in the Los Angeles area who used to investigate use-of-force cases and testifies about police procedures, said that up until Boucher became immobile, the officers acted properly. After that, “they went way, way, way overboard with the baton and with the additional tases,” Flynn said. “The decedent was not combative. The decedent was rendered useless.” He said the case also sheds light on the importance for all law enforcement to be trained to recognize mental illness and respond accordingly. Boucher’s parents, who live in Marion, Ind. — where Boucher lived until he was about 30 — are seeking unspecified damages. Boucher, who was divorced, also is surend of this budget year, vived by a daughter. but won’t require the state to dip into the current fund of about $482 million, said state budget director Tim Keen. The $140 million collected yearly from the tax, though less than 1 percent of Ohio’s budget, still puts extra financial pressures on the state as it builds the two-year budget taking effect next July, Keen added. At issue is a 2005 rewrite of Ohio’s tax code that taxes a wide variety of business activity, not just a company’s revenue. Lawmakers approved the tax as an alternative to the state’s former business tax, which was criticized as having high rates but numerous loopholes — it was sometimes dubbed a “Swiss cheese” approach — that reduced its ability to raise revenue. The new tax is low — 0.26 percent — but is applied to as many businesses as possible with fewer exemptions. The debate doesn’t involve the 28-cent state gasoline tax, whose revenues are distributed automatically to the state, counties and local governments for road work. The state argued that the CAT is not on gasoline itself, but on companies that make money selling fuel. It also said opponents of the tax are disguising their objections to paying it “as a crusade to save highway spending.”

Court rejects non-highway use of fuel taxes BY ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Taking money collected on gasoline sales by the state’s updated business tax and spending it on anything but highwayrelated programs is unconstitutional, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled Friday as it accepted arguments that the tax is wrongly diverting $140 million annually from fuel sales to non-roadwork accounts for schools and cities. Builders, contractors, construction companies and engineers had sued over the tax, claiming that Ohio voters have repeatedly rejected the notion of diverting taxes raised from fuel sales to non-road work. The court said in a 6-1 decision that the Commercial Activity Tax can still be applied to companies that make money selling fuel, but it can’t be diverted into the state fund that pays for everything from schools to prisons to health care for the poor. The court came to a similar conclusion three years ago in a lawsuit brought by grocers over the tax’s application to grocery store food sales. However, that decision didn’t deal with how the tax proceeds could be spent. The Ohio Constitution “explicitly prohibits the expenditure of revenue derived from excises on motor-vehicle

fuel for any purpose other than highway purposes,” Justice Robert Cupp wrote for the majority. The state can still collect the money but can’t spend it until the General Assembly passes a law adjusting what it can be constitutionally used for, Cupp added. The office of Gov. John Kasich, which must produce a balanced two-year budget early next year, is reviewing the decision, said spokesman Rob Nichols. Groups opposed to the tax argued the Ohio constitution bars money raised from the sale of fuel from being used on anything but highway upkeep. “The diversion of any of these excise taxes undermines the will of the people to preserve the M o t o r- Ve h i c l e - F u e l related excise tax base for public road repair and construction,” Anthony Ehler, an attorney representing both construction companies and county engineers whose budgets rely on fuel taxes, said in a March 20 court filing. Ehler said Friday the decision won’t raise or lower taxes that people pay for fuel but will improve driving in Ohio. “Ultimately, it will mean better funding for roads and bridges and safe driving,” Ehler said. The decision will likely reduce how much money Ohio can add to its rainy day fund at the


COLUMBUS — Sharon Kennedy has become the ninth woman to serve on the Ohio Supreme Court. Kennedy, a Republican, was sworn in at a ceremony in Columbus on Friday. She’s a former Butler County domestic relations judge, who was elected to the seat in November. Kennedy ended Democratic Justice Yvette McGee Brown’s bid to serve an unexpired term through 2014. Kennedy began her career in pubKennedy lic service as a police officer in Hamilton in southwest Ohio. McGee Brown was the first black female justice on the high court. She had been appointed in 2010 to fill a vacancy left when Maureen O’Connor became chief justice. McGee Brown’s supporters had claimed Kennedy had benefited in the election from a “great ballot name” that prevailed even after $1.5 million in spending favoring the Democrat.

Ex-coach pleads not guilty in video case CANTON (AP) — A former high school basketball coach accused of videotaping student-athletes in the locker room has pleaded not guilty to felony charges in northeast Ohio. Court officials say 46year-old Scott Studer pleaded not guilty Friday in Canton to eight counts of illegal use of a minor in a nudity-oriented material or performance. The former Jackson High School coach was arrested in November

after investigators searched his home and found nude images on a DVD, a laptop computer and a flash drive. Prosecutors say Studer could be sentenced to up to 64 years in prison if he’s convicted of all charges. A call to his attorney was not immediately returned. The high school is in Jackson Township, between Massillon and Canton. Media outlets report Studer resigned shortly after his arrest.

Hotel security guard found dead CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say a hotel security guard found dead at the Cincinnati hotel where he worked had an apparent stab wound. Police responded to a call from the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza around 6 a.m. Friday. They say they found 58-year-old Richard K. Campbell dead in a stairwell. The homicide unit is investigating. Police did not release any additional details. The Hilton sits across

from Fountain Square in the heart of downtown. A hotel statement says the security staff member was “involved in a situation with an unknown person” in an emergency staircase in the Carew Tower Complex where the hotel is located. The hotel says he had worked there for eight years. The hotel’s managing director says the Hilton has 561 guest rooms and more than 230 employees.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, Dec. 8, the 343rd day of 2012. There are 23 days left in the year. The Jewish Festival of Lights, Hanukkah, begins at sunset. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 8, 1941, the United States entered World War II as Congress declared war against Japan, a day after the attack on Pearl Harbor. On this date: ■ In 1776, during the Revolutionary War, Gen. George Washington’s retreating army crossed the Delaware River from New Jersey into Pennsylvania. ■ In 1854, Pope Pius IX proclaimed the Catholic dogma of the Immaculate Conception, which holds that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was free of original sin from the moment of her own conception. ■ In 1886, the American Federation of Labor was founded in Columbus, Ohio. ■ In 1914, “Watch Your Step,” the first musical revue to feature a score composed entirely by Irving Berlin, opened in New York. ■ In 1949, the Chinese Nationalist government moved from the Chinese mainland to Formosa as the Communists pressed their attacks. ■ In 1961, a fire at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut resulted in 16 deaths. The Beach Boys’ first single, “Surfin’,” was released. ■ In 1962, the first session of the Second Vatican Council was formally adjourned. Typographers went on a 114-day strike against four New York City newspapers. ■ In 1972, a United Airlines Boeing 737 crashed while attempting to land at Chicago-Midway Airport, killing 43 of the 61 people on board, as well as two people on the ground; among the passengers who died were Dorothy Hunt, wife of Watergate conspirator E. Howard Hunt, U.S. Rep. George W. Collins, DIll., and CBS News correspondent Michele Clark. ■ In 1980, rock star John Lennon was shot to death outside his New York City apartment building by an apparently deranged fan. ■ In 1982, a man demanding an end to nuclear weapons held the Washington Monument hostage, threatening to blow it up with explosives he claimed were inside a van. (After a 10-hour standoff, Norman D. Mayer was shot dead by police; it turned out there were no explosives.)


Santa on naughty list SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A mall in Maine has sacked Santa Claus after children and parents complained he was rude, grumpy and wouldn't even let one child sit on his lap. Officials at the Maine Mall in South Portland say they're looking for a jollier Santa and hope to have him in place Thursday. Jessica Mailhiot and her 6-year-old daughter, Chantel, went to see Santa this week. They tell WGME-TV he was rude and wouldn’t let the girl sit on his lap when they said they didn’t want to buy a $20 photo. Chantel says when she asked Santa for an American Girl doll, he replied she’d get an “American football.” When the mom posted her story online, others shared similar experiences. The station contacted the Santa, but he didn't want to comment.

Court will hear same-sex marriage cases BY MARK SHERMAN Associated Press

legal, or soon will be, in nine states — Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont are the others — and the District of Columbia, it is banned by the state constitutions of 30 others. In Hawaii, a constitutional amendment gives the legislature the power to define marriage as between a man and a woman, and it has done so. Federal courts in California have struck down the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, but that ruling and thus gay unions remain on hold while the issue is being appealed. The high court’s decision to hear the federal benefit question was a virtual certainty because several lower courts struck down the provision of the 1996 law and the justices almost always step in when lower courts invalidate a federal law. There is nothing that compelled a similar response from

the court in the case over California’s Proposition 8, the state constitutional ban on gay marriage that voters adopted in 2008 after the state Supreme Court ruled that gay Californians could marry. Indeed, the gay marriage supporters who prevailed in the lower courts urged the Supreme Court to stay out of the case and allow same-sex unions to resume in the nation’s largest state. Even some gay rights activists worried that it was too soon in the evolution of views toward same-sex marriage to ask the justices to intervene and declare that same-sex couples have the same right to marry as heterosexuals. But Theodore Olson, the Washington lawyer who represents Californians who sued over Proposition 8, said he will argue that there is a “fundamental constitutional right to marry for all citizens.”

Survivors remember those lost

Climate talks go into overtime

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court plunged into the contentious issue of gay marriage Friday when it agreed to take up California’s ban on same-sex unions and a separate dispute about federal benefits for legally married gay couples. The court’s action gives the justices the chance to say by late June whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals. Several narrower paths also are open to the justices as they consider both California’s voter-approved Proposition 8 and the provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that denies to legally married gay Americans the favorable federal tax treatment and a range of federal health and pension benefits given to het-

erosexual couples. The court is embarked on what could be its most significant term involving civil rights in decades. In the area of racial discrimination, the justices already have agreed to decide cases on affirmative action in admission to college and a key part of the Voting Rights Act. The gay marriage cases probably will be argued in March and decisions in all the court’s cases are likely by the end of June. The order from the court extends a dizzying pace of change regarding gay marriage that includes rapid shifts in public opinion, President Barack Obama’s endorsement in May and votes in Maine, Maryland and Washington in November to allow gay couples to marry. Same-sex couples in Washington began picking up marriage licenses on Thursday. Yet even as gay marriage is

BY AUDREY MCAVOY Associated Press PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — More than 2,000 people at Pearl Harbor and many more around the country on Friday marked the 71st anniversary of the Japanese attack that killed thousands of people and launched the United States into World War II. The USS Michael Murphy, a recently christened ship named after a Pearl Harborbased Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan, sounded its ship’s whistle to start a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m., the exact time the bombing began in 1941. Crew members lined the edge of the Navy guided-missile destroyer in the harbor where the USS Arizona and USS Utah, battleships that sank in the attack, still lie. Hawaii Air National Guard F22 fighter jets flew overhead in a special “missing man” formation to break the silence. “Let us remember that this is where it all began. Let us remember that the arc of history was bent at this place 71 years ago today and a generation of young men and women reached deep and rose up to lead our nation to victory,” Rhea Suh, Interior Department assistant secretary, told the crowd. “Let us remember and be forever grateful for all of their sacrifices.” About 30 survivors, many using walkers and canes, attended the commemoration. Edwin Schuler, of San Jose, Calif., said he remembered going up to the bridge of his ship, the USS Phoenix, to read a book on a bright, sunny Sunday morning in 1941 when he saw planes dropping bombs. “I thought: ‘Whoa, they’re using big practice bombs.’ I didn’t know,” said Schuler, 91. Schuler said he’s returned for the annual ceremony about 30 times because it’s important to spread the message of remembering Pearl Harbor. Ewalt Shatz, 89, said returning to Pearl Harbor

THE USS Arizona Memorial is shown on Friday at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Pearl Harbor survivors gathered at the USS Arizona Memorial and World War II Valor In The Pacific National Monument remembering the 71th anniversary of the Dec. 7, 1941 Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Honolulu. “keeps the spirit going, the remembering of what can happen.” Shatz, who lives in Riverside, Calif., was on board the USS Patterson that morning when the alarm sounded. His more experienced shipmates were down below putting a boiler back together so Shatz found himself manning a 50caliber machine gun for the first time. The Navy credited him with shooting a Japanese plane. “That was some good shooting,” said U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Adm. Cecil Haney who recounted Shatz’ experience in the keynote address. “Thank you for your courage and tenacity — our nation is truly grateful.” Online, Pearl Harbor became a popular topic on Facebook and other social networks, trending worldwide on Twitter and Google Plus as people marked the anniversary with status updates, personal stories of family and photos. The Navy and National Park Service, which is part of the Interior Department, hosted the ceremonies held in remembrance of the 2,390 service members and 49 civilians killed in the attack. Friday’s event gave special recognition to members of the Women Airforce Service Pilots, who flew noncombat missions during World War II, and to Ray Emory, a 91-year-

old Pearl Harbor survivor who has pushed to identify the remains of unknown servicemen. The ceremony also included a Hawaiian blessing, songs played by the U.S. Pacific Fleet band and a rifle salute from the U.S. Marine Corps. An F-22 fighter jet used in the flyover later scraped its tail on a runway while landing about 90 minutes after the ceremony. President Barack Obama marked the day on Thursday by issuing a presidential proclamation, calling for flags to fly at half-staff on Friday and asking all Americans to observe the day of remembrance and honor military service members and veterans. “Today, we pay solemn tribute to America’s sons and daughters who made the ultimate sacrifice at Oahu,” Obama said in a statement. “As we do, let us also reaffirm that their legacy will always burn bright — whether in the memory of those who knew them, the spirit of service that guides our men and women in uniform today, or the heart of the country they kept strong and free.” Daniel Inouye, Hawaii’s senior U.S. senator and a member of an Army unit of Japanese-Americans who volunteered to fight in World War II, said the Pearl Harbor attack evoked anger, fierce patriotism and racism.

Egypt delays constitution vote BY SARAH EL DEEB Associated Press CAIRO (AP) — Egypt postponed early voting on a contentious draft constitution, and aides to President Mohammed Morsi floated the possibility of canceling the whole referendum in the first signs Friday that the Islamic leader is finally yielding to days of protests and deadly street clashes. Tens of thousands marched on the presidential palace after pushing past barbed wire fences installed by the army and calling for Morsi to step down. Thousands also camped out in Tahrir Square, birthplace of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011. A spokesman for Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood urged the group’s supporters to prac-

tice “self-restraint” after hundreds gathered in front of a mosque near the presidential palace. He appealed for them not to march to the palace and to avoid confrontation. The announcement by the election committee head Ismail Hamdi to delay early voting on the charter came as a surprise, and it was difficult to predict whether it will lead to a breakthrough in the political crisis. The president’s aides said the move would ease some pressure and would provide room for negotiations with the opposition. But Morsi’s opponents have rejected talks, saying he must first cancel the referendum and meet other demands. Late Friday, an opposition umbrella group called for an open-ended sit-in in front of

the presidential palace. The crisis began Nov. 22, when Morsi issued a decree that gave him absolute powers and immunity from judicial oversight. It deepened when he called for a Dec. 15 national referendum on the draft constitution hurriedly produced by the Islamist-led constituent assembly. The draft was infused with articles that liberals fear would pave the way for Islamizing Egypt. Legal Affairs Minister Mohammed Mahsoub said the administration was weighing several proposals — including calling off the referendum and returning it to the constituent assembly for changes. Another possibility was disbanding the constituent assembly and forming a new one, either by direct vote or an agreement among the political forces.

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — The world’s poorest countries, inundated by rising seas and worsening disasters, made a last ditch plea for financial help early Saturday as negotiators at United Nations climate talks struggled to reach an ambitions deal to combat global warming. The two-week U.N. conference in the Qatar capital of Doha was never meant to yield a global climate pact to curb emissions of greenhouse gases — that has been put off until 2015. But many developing nations said they were increasingly frustrated with the lack of ambition from rich countries on everything from climate aid to the emissions cuts they will make until 2020. Talks were set to end Friday but they continued into early Saturday with negotiators set to meet in several hours to assess progress. “The expectations we had for a great deal in Doha is no more. That is dust,” said Mohammed Chowdhury, a Bangladeshi who is a lead negotiator for a coalition of poor nations called the Least Developed Countries or LCD. “We are facing day in and day out the adverse effects of climate change,” he said. “Nobody is nearby to rescue them. You see President Obama asking for huge funding for Hurricane Sandy … But we won’t get that scale and magnitude of support.” The biggest fight early Saturday swirled around what is called “loss and damage,” a relatively new concept which relates to damages from climate-related disasters. Island nations and LCD have been pushing for some mechanism to deal with this but the United States has pushed back over concerns they might be held liable for the cleanup bill since they are the world’s second biggest emitter behind China. Many scientists say extreme weather events, such as Hurricane Sandy’s onslaught on the U.S. East Coast, will become more frequent as the Earth warms, although it is impossible to attribute any individual event to climate change. “It’s becoming the last straw for the small island states, the least develop countries,” said Alden Meyer, of the U.S.-based Union of Concerned Scientists. “Seasoned negotiators are coming out of that room in tears, very emotional. They are starting to say what are we doing here? What is the point of these negotiations?” And with the negotiations on the brink of failure, activists said they were giving up hope that any deal would include tough measures to protect the planet from the effects of global warming.

Emerson Climate Technologies Inc., a business of Emerson, celethe 25th brated anniversary of Copeland Scroll compressor technology with an employee celebration recently, which included several former executives and a visit from the mayor. Recognized for its energy efficiency and reliability, Copeland Scroll technology has helped shape the HVACR industry since its introduction in 1987, according to Ed Purvis, Emerson Climate Technologies business leader. More than 100 million Copeland Scroll compressors have been produced worldwide since that time. Emerson ushered in a new phase of energy efficiency for the HVACR industry with the launch of Copeland Scroll technology. By 1992, the company had produced one million Copeland Scroll compressors. Today, Emerson manufactures Copeland Scroll

compressors in nine facilities on three continents. Copeland Scroll compressors are used by all the major OEM air conditioning and refrigeration system providers in the U.S. as well as many others globally. “I am proud to have been part of the team that brought Copeland Scroll technology to market 25 years ago, and I’m confident today that no compressor technology is better prepared to meet the application, the market and the industry challenges of the future,” Purvis said. “We have been fortunate to work with some of the best manufacturers, distributors and contractors in the industry over the past 25 years and I thank them all for their support.” Emerson company is working to add even greater efficiency and reliability to its scroll compressors, according to Purvis. The company continues to release new scroll platforms to meet the en-

ergy demands of today and tomorrow. Emerson is investing in modulating technologies that improve energyefficiency without compromising comfort. The future of scroll technology also lies in compressor electronics, Purvis said. The launch of CoreSense technology last year advances Emerson’s “smart compressor” strategy of using the compressor as a sensor, which includes on-board modules for select new compressor lines. only in Found Copeland compressors, this electronics platform enhances compressor and system performance by sensing and interpreting information found inside the compressor, providing new levels of diagnostics, protection and communication.

join the National Organization of Women and will be an active and outspoken member. Two weeks ago, I invited a young man to go to a movie with me, and he agreed. I picked him up, but when we got to the theater, he wanted to pay for the movie tickets, and I said that, since I invited him, that it was up to me to pay. He refused my offer and got in line to buy the tickets, but I told him that I wasn’t going into the theater if he paid. Well, he did pay, and I told him that I wasn’t going into the theater, so he tore up the tickets and called a friend to pick him up. So that is my story of my date with Chuck. I’d like to hear your thoughts on this, but if this scenario was played out again, I’d still refuse to enter the theater. —Shasta, Santa Rosa, Calif. SHASTA: You and your date should agree that if you do the asking, you will do the paying. This should be done at the time a date is accepted. Since your date insisted on paying for the tickets, you movie should have agreed and tried to have an enjoyable evening. I blame you more than your date for spoiling the evening!

Book sale donations sought Effort supports No Boundaries Scholarship

PIQUA — The Preston Shepard No Boundaries Scholarship Committee at Edison Community College is requesting donations of good, clean, used books, movies and music. People who have old books in good condition that they want to clear out, the scholarship committee would like to have them for its first used book sale. The committee also needs music and movies. It is looking for family-friendly paperbacks, hardbacks, textbooks, recipe books, Christian books, including Christian fiction such as the Amish-type books, children’s books, biographies, sports-related books, and other books that are fiction or nonfiction, along with movies on VCR or DVD, and music of different genres. The group is requesting no pornography or books that would reflect badly on Edison or the scholarship committee. The organization is also

requesting no donations of encyclopedias or dictionaries, as they are unlikely to sell. The organization hopes to raise funds for the Preston Shepard No Boundaries Scholarship and award. The award is in honor of Preston Shepard, a 2012 Edison honors graduate who overcame great obstacles in his life to earn a degree. He is now working on his bachelor’s degree at a four-year college and plans to earn a master’s degree. He is an inspiration to many people at Edison and in the community for his determination, energy and positive attitude after he was injured in a fall that left him a paraplegic. He has refused to allow the accident to define who he is as a person, committee members said. The book sale will help to fund a scholarship and award that will be given to an Edison student who has overcome obstacles in their life to achieve their

educational and career goals. The first Preston Shepard No Boundaries Award was presented in the spring to Shepard. It is hoped Shepard will present the award to the next recipient. The scholarship will also be presented to that person. Anyone, including individuals, corporations or businesses, who would like to donate to the Preston Shepard No Boundaries Scholarship Fund can do so by contacting Chris Norman at Edison Community College, (937) 778-8600. People wanting to donate books or music for the book sale can do so by bringing them to Edison and leaving them in the large boxes located at Edison’s main entrance inside the third set of doors on the west side facing Looney Road or at the entrance to the new Emerson addition at the glassed-in area near the front entrance near the “point” of the school. The boxes are marked

with a photo of Shepard and are marked for the book sale. The book sale is scheduled for early in the spring semester and will be open to the public. Book donations will be accepted through the first day of the sale. The dates for the sale will be announced soon. Donations are accepted between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays during school hours. Books can be dropped off during those times except during Christmas break, when the school will be closed, which includes Dec. 24, 25, 26 and Jan. 1. Edison Community College is located at 1973 Edison Drive off of Looney Road. Anyone with questions about donations can contact Ashley Nix at (937) 570-3073 or Kathy Leese at (937)489-3711. The scholarship committee appreciates all the donations and hopes the community will support the scholarship.

We heard that there may be a genetic component to the disease through the mother. Is this true? What are the cousin’s chances for a full recovery? — K.O’C. ANSWER: Moyamoya disease, despite its odd-sounding name (Japanese for “puff of smoke”), is a serious

disease involving blockages of the major blood vessels in the base of the brain, called the circle of Willis. It is most prevalent in Japan but is rarely found in this country. Only about 10 percent of Moyamoya is familial, and the genetics are not related to gender, even though the condition is a bit more common in women. Surgical treatment for this condition is designed to increase blood flow to the affected part of the brain. In expert hands, the results can be very good. This is one of the conditions for which it pays to consult with the person with the greatest experience you can find.

25 years Dec. 8, 1987 A short-term solution to the county’s solid waste disposal problem may be in the offing as the result of a proposal submitted to the Shelby County Commissioners by Patrick Milligan, owner-operator of the county landfill. Milligan’s proposal calls for an addendum to be made to the county’s current landfill agreement which now provides for the lease of the site and operational costs. Under the terms of the addendum, haulers would continue to take refuse to the landfill site on State Route 47 and Milligan would then be responsible for disposing of it. Milligan plans to install a transfer station at the landfill site and contract privately with a hauler to remove the compacted trash to another 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.

old granddaughter asking me for Santa Claus’ phone number. It seems she is very angry at her daddy for calling her a brat because she wouldn’t give him a hug. She wants to tattle on her daddy to Santa. Her parents are not together. Her daddy’s involvement has been only within the last year. She seemed very upset about the incident, and I want to make sure “Santa” gives her a good answer. I asked her to write a letter instead of phoning Santa to give me time for an answer. Did I do the right thing? — GRANDMA T.,

PACIFIC GROVE, CALIF. DEAR GRAMDMA T.: Yes. Once your granddaughter has written the letter to Santa you may find that she no longer dwells on what happened. However, if she continues to look for a reply, “Santa’s” response should be that her daddy was hurt when she refused to give him a hug because daddies need love just as little girls do. But namecalling is wrong, no matter how old you are, and he shouldn’t have called her a brat — which is why he’ll be getting a lump of coal in his stocking at Christmas.

Jets roll to 57-42 win First win over Fort Loramie in boys basketball since 2004 BY MATT ZIRCHER Fairlawn scored the first nine points of the game and then used a 14-2 second quarter to break the game open as the Jets remained undefeated with a 57-42 home win over the Fort Loramie Redskins Friday night in County boys basketball play. Fairlawn is now 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the league after breaking a 16-game losing streak to the Redskins dating back to 2004. Loramie suffers its first loss of the season in falling to 2-1 and 0-1. The Jets were on fire early, jumping out to a 9-0 lead just 2:32 into the contest, but the Redskins stormed back and cut the deficit to 11-9 on a Seth Guillozet three-point play at the 1:53 mark. Layups by Joey Cockroft and Anthony Gillem, however, pushed the lead back up to six and after Loramie scored the final two points of the period, Fairlawn dominated the second quarter, holding the Redskins without a point for the final 6:39 and tallying the final 12 points to go up 29-13 at the half. “Fairlawn started out fast and we just never got into attack mode,” said Loramie coach Karl Ratermann. “We just didn’t match their intensity the entire game. We got outrebounded and we didn’t have the mental focus that we needed to have.” The Jets shot 46 percent in the first half while Loramie shot 26 percent and had just five field goals. A Gillem three in the opening minute of the third quarter extended the lead to 32-15, but back came the Redskins with seven straight points and an 11-3 run overall to make it 35-26 with two minutes remaining. A Guillozet putback closed the gap to 40-33 with five minutes to play, but Gillem came up with the play of the night as his inbounds pass went off a Loramie player and back to the senior guard for a three-point play to push the lead back into double figures. “Anthony has a ton of basketball knowledge,” said Fairlawn coach Justin Tidwell. “Loramie had the momentum, but our seniors and their leadership really came through down the stretch.”

FORT LORAMIE’S Logan McGee tries to drive past Fairlawn’s Jessie Hughes in County boys basketball action Friday night at Fairlawn. The Jets beat the Redskins in a battle of 2-0 teams. The Redskins would get no closer than eight the rest of the way. The Jets shot 48 percent for the game, including six of 13 from three-point range, while Loramie finished at 37 percent after shooting 43 percent the final two quarters. Fairlawn led 35-25 on the boards, 26-20 in points in the paint and 15-9 in points off of turnovers. “We knew that rebounding would be a big key for us tonight,” said Tidwell. “We preached all week about it and we did a good job of holding them to one shot.”

Jackets fall to West Carrollton Sidney dropped to 0-3 on the season after a 72-45 loss to visiting West Carrollton in a Greater Wesern Ohio Conference crossover game Friday night in high school boys basketball. The Yellow Jackets have lost the three games to teams with a combined one loss heading into Friday night’s action. And it doesn’t get any easier with undefeated Springboro coming to town Tuesday night. The Jackets could muster just five points in the opening quarter and as a result, found themselves in a big hole early on, with the Pirates rolling to a 19-5 bulge after a quarter. The lead grew to 37-20 by the half. Sidney head coach Greg Snyder said the Jacketsd had a game plan in place to limit possessions, but it went out the window in a hurry. “It’s disappointing,” he said. “I wanted to keep the number of possessions down so we could keep ourselves in the game. But we came down and took a couple of quick shots, had a couple of unforced turnovers, and we’re playing from behind pretty early. West Carrollton did a good job of

taking advantage of that and our game plan went out the window.” Tyree Manley wound up as Sidney’s top scorer with 12, with all of the points coming in the second half, and all but three in the third quarter. “We have to get better and what we want to do, but first we have to decide what we want to do,” Snyder said. “We’re acting like we want to play in the 80s but I’m not sure that’s what we need. “We’re playing some great teams, I know, but we did not play well and that’s the disapointing part. Sometimes you play well and things don’t go your way, but that wasn’t the case tonight. But we’re going to keep working and getting better.” West Carrollton (72) Whatley 6-2-14; Craig 5-1-13; Marzetti 3-1-7; Liva 2-0-5; Myslowski 9-4-23; Salek 2-2-6; Craig 1-0-2; Boston 1-0-2.

Tigers hold off Raiders RUSSIA — The Jackson Center Tigers held off a valiant charge by the Russia Raiders down the stretch to remain unbeaten on the year with a 51-46 victory in County boys basketball action Friday night at Russia. The Tigers go to 2-0 in the County and 3-0 overall with the win and are back in action tonight at home against Riverside. Russia is still looking for its first win in three tries, two of them County games. They will play at Minster tonight. “We just weren’t very much in sync on offense in the first half,” said Russia coach Paul Bremigan, whose Raiders fell behind by 16 at the intermission. “We played much better in the second half at both ends of the floor.” The Raiders whittled the lead down to just three points on a couple SDN Photo/Todd B.

BOTKINS — The Botkins Trojans ran t h e i r record to 40 on the year with a 68-42 nonleague win over visiting Ridgemont in high school Roberts boys basketball action Friday night. The Trojans now prepare for the battle of the unbeatens Tuesday night at Jackson Center, which is 3-0 after beating Russia Friday.

“We played well in stretches,” said Botkins head coach Brett Meyer. “And then not so well in others. Josh Schwartz got in foul trouble in the first quarter and that hurt our offensive flow a little bit. “I really thought Alex Roberts came in and gave us a spark on both ends of the floor,” he continued. “He created some turnovers and scored some points. Ridgemont had cut the lead down to 20-16 in the second quarter but we scored six straight, and Alex had five of them.”

Botkins led 18-10 after a quarter, only to have the Gophers cut into the lead in the second period. But behind the play of Roberts, the Trojans pulled out to a 35-20 lead by the half and were never threatened thereafter. Schwartz finished with 18 points, nine of those coming in the third period, and Heath Geyer added 17. Roberts finished with nine, as did Gabe Lawrence. Schwartz had seven rebounds and Roger Miller had four steals.

Botkins shot 50 percent from the field on 29for-58 and held Ridgemont to just 34 percent on 145-for-44.

Houston tops Anna for 2nd Trojans roll to 4th straight straight win HOUSTON — For the third game in a row, the Houston Wildcats were impressive on the defensive end, and it led this time to a 49-38 victory over the visiting Anna Rockets in County boys basketball action Friday night. The win puts Houston at 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the County heading to Franklin-Monroe tonight. Anna is 0-2, both games being in county play. The Rockets are also in action tonight, at New Knoxville. Houston, which has won two in a row, led 2514 at the half and that was too much for the Rockets to overcome. “We held them to 14 points in the first half,” said Houston coach John Willoughby. “We felt pretty good about that. We had trouble with (Joel) Albers in the third quarter. We probably didn’t do a good enough job of scouting them on that. But we handled the ball fairly well and got some real good efforts from kids that don’t show up in the boxscore.” He pointed to TJ Martin and Austin Sarver. “TJ had an outstanding game,” Willoughby said. “He got a lot of of-

fensive rebounds because his man was doubling down on Jesse (Phlipot). And Austin just battled inside against bigger guys.” Phlipot finished with 19 points for the Wildcats and Jake Braun added 11. For Anna, Albers finished with 19 and Carter Bensman added 10.

Prakel wins High School Heisman NEW YORK – Zoe Alaniz of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Samuel Prakel of Versailles w e r e proudly recognized t h i s evening as t h e Prakel scholarathletes to win the 19th annual Wendy’s® High School Heisman® Award honoring high school seniors who excel in sports, academics and community involvement. These extraordinary stu-

dents were chosen from more than 45,000 applicants. The Wendy’s High School Heisman Award, inspired by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, honors the achievements of exceptional high school seniors and provides a platform for their continued growth and success. Since its inception in 1994, more than 415,000 students have been nominated for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award. “The Wendy’s High School Heisman honors student-athletes who

embody the spirit of the Heisman tradition of hard work and dedication,” said Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the Heisman Memorial Trophy and a long-time spokesman of Wendy’s High School Heisman. Prakel is a triple threat as an exceptional athlete with record breaking stats in cross country, track and field and swimming and diving. He holds the state meet record and all-division course record of 15:19.34 for the 5,000 meter distance in cross

country and plans to run at a top university after graduation. Prakel is most proud of his leadership role in Boy Scouts, where he organized service projects and earned the Eagle Scout rank. Alaniz and Prakel will each receive a crystal Wendy’s High School Heisman trophy, a $10,000 donation to his and her high school and a $500 Wendy’s gift card, along with an appearance on tonight’s live Heisman Trophy broadcast on ESPN at 8 p.m.

Wrestlers beat Vandalia, Tipp Calvert, now 7-0, pinned in just :50 against Vandalia and in :43 against Tipp City. “The upper weights really set the stage for us and none more than Jordan,” said McCracken. “He’s a firstyear wrestler and picked up two pins. Logan’s pin against Vandalia was huge with a 28-28 score at the time. It pretty much won it for us.” Mason Calvert had a technical fall, 21-9, to wrap up the win. “We got off to an 18-0 start, but Vandalia kept coming back and took the lead 28-25 with four matches remaining,” said McCracken. “But we responded with three straight pins to put it out of reach.”

Garrick Ginter remained unbeaten at 7-0 and has been a pinning machine so far, with six. Sidney also got a pin from Jacob Lochard at 195. Against Tipp City, Kyle Pierce pinned in 1:30 at 106 pounds, Jacob Sharp pinned in :47 at 120, Alex Willman pinned in :45 at 126, Rhett Rosengarten pinned in 2:11 at 132, Logan Calvert pinned in :43 at 145, Mason Calvert pinned in 2:51 at 152, Ginter pinned at 170, Fox at 182 and Lochard in 5:44 at 195. Noah Straman won 18-7 at 220, Maurice Ickes 12-2 at 285 pounds against Tipp City, and Rosengarten took a 9-3 decision

against Vandalia. “Against Vandalia, our intensity was the best of the year so far,” said McCracken. “I really think the Versailles match (Saturday) was a wakeup call for us. This has to pump us up to improve and shoot for a good postseason. “Our seniors wanted this one badly,” he added. “They have never lost to Vandalia in their careers.” McCracken said the Tipp City match was closer than the score indicates, with Sidney having to come from behind in several matches to win. Sidney, now 6-1 in duals, won’t return to action until Dec. 15 at Pickerington North’s tournament.

That’s why it will be easy to reach an agreement. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Co-workers and people connected with your job will be surprisingly supportive today. Accept this, and offer your own support to them in return. What goes around comes around. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Romance is very sweet and affectionate today. Your idealism is aroused, which means you might put someone up on a pedestal. (It’s probably temporary, but it’s kinda fun.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Discussions with female relatives will be gentle and affectionate today. Someone might need you to listen. It’s a small thing, yet so important, isn’t it? VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Because your imagination is heightened today, this is a great day for those of you who are working in creative fields. Nevertheless, imagination is important in many areas of life. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be careful about major expenditures today, because you might be tempted by luxury and elegance. Why not give things a sober second thought? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Today you feel kindhearted to everyone you meet. They, in turn, will be friendly to you because generally, the attitude of one person triggers the same in another. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) There is a difference between self-sacrifice and martyrdom. Don’t be a doormat for others if you’re concerned about their misfortunes. Stay strong so that you can help them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your connection with a female authority figure will help you today. This person feels sympathetic to your needs and could promote something that benefits you financially in the future. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) People view you as being sympathetic and helpful today. This is never a bad thing because kindness is the most important quality. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing to cultivate. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, visit beautiful places! Go to parks, art galleries, gorgeous architectural buildings and museums. YOU BORN TODAY You are dramatic, powerful and romantic. Your imagination and sense of theatricality create a world in which you fiercely protect your loved ones. No matter what your job, you fantasize about achieving bold exploits. Personally, you are private and very sensitive. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Dame Judi Dench, actress; Jesse Metcalfe, actor; John Cassavetes, actor/filmmaker. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western branches are Union trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.
