Pig tales: County teen lives dream at state fair By Melanie Yingst Staff Writer

COLUMBUS — For Miami County Fair, Pork Queen Emily Oldham representing her beloved industry and the county fair has always been a dream of hers. Oldham showed her breeding gilt “Jellybean” for the first time Monday at the Ohio State Fair. Representing Miami County’s pork industry, Oldham donned her crown and sash to help pass out ribbons and prizes in the Ohio Stat Fair show ring. “I’ve never shown at the Ohio State Fair, so I really wanted to give it a try this year,” said Oldham on Monday at the O’Neill Livestock Building at the Ohio State Fair. “I wanted to get more

experience at a higher competition level.” Oldham said she enjoyed seeing the competition at the state level in the show ring and finished fifth in her class. “It’s just a whole different level out there,” Oldham said. “I get more nervous at the county fair because you know everybody and there’s a lot of great (pigs) out there.” Yet, Oldham said she wanted to share her experience showing pigs and help others appreciate the pork industry by running for the Miami County Fair’s Pork Queen contest in May. Oldham, 16, of Troy, shared how she has always looked up to past Miami County Fair’s pork queens over the years and wanted to give the contest a shot earlier

this spring. “I’ve been showing since I was 5 years-old,” Oldham said. “I have always looked up to our fair’s pork queens and how they represent the county and our pork industry.” Oldham also is a junior fair board member at the Miami County Fair. “It’s a lot of responsibility, but you also get to enjoy all the behind the scenes stuff,” she said. The hard work and dedication it takes to raise livestock is something that Oldham looks forward to each year. Oldham plans on breeding and raising market barrows to show and sell to local 4-H club members next year. “I’m planning on to breed the

TROY — A West Milton man is heading to prison following a Tuesday sentencing hearing stemming from his actions in May where he used a steak knife to rob a gas station and then a bicycle to make a brief escape. Joshua L. Watts, 22, was sen-

tenced by a common pleas court judge to serve one year in prison for his heist and robbery conviction. Watts was originally charged with aggravated robbery but later had the charge amended to robbery after waiving a Josh Watts grand jury’s consider-

ation of his case June 6. Authorities said that on May 3 Watts walked into Certified Oil, 891 S. Miami St., West Milton, and used a steak knife to rob the gas station. Police reports disclose that Watts fled the scene with approximately $100 and used a bicycle in an

attempt to flee the scene, but was later apprehended a short time later by members of the West Milton Police Department. Upon his capture police found some of the stolen money on Watts, who told police he hid the knife, reports state. Following his release from prison Watts will be subject to post release control.

It just gives you a whole new perspective on hogs.” Oldham said she loves experimenting with different genetics to breed the best possible swine project. “The fun part is trying to find a match that will bring the best qualities,” Oldham said. “I like just seeing what you create and how the pick of the genetics worked out once the litter is born after three months.” Oldham said she’ll receive help with her new breeding project with her father, Tom Oldham. “My dad helps me a lot with this,” she said. “I make the decisions and he will support me, so we’ll work together to come up with the best solution.” Oldham, a junior at Milton-Union High School, said she enjoys the friendships and camaraderie aspects of the 4-H program. “My favorite part of 4-H is meeting new people and making friends,” Oldham said. “The first year of 4-H camp I met this girl who was there and we’ve been best friends ever since.” At the county fair, everybody comes together and you just enjoy showing and hanging out with friends.” Oldham is a member of the Newton Blue Ribbon 4-H club and the Monroe Muttleys.

Obama challenges GOP to accept corporate tax deal CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday offered congressional Republicans a new corporate tax cut and jobs spending package he said might “help break through some of the political logjam in Washington,” only to have GOP lawmakers immediately throw cold water on the idea. The announcement and quick rejection underscored how elusive common ground is between the Democratic White House and Republicans in Congress on fiscal issues. The divide was particularly stark on the corporate tax proposal given that both parties generally have supported overhauling the code for businesses, though the White House and Republicans have differed on specifics. Obama outlined his proposal in a speech at a massive plant in Chattanooga, his latest stop on a summertime campaign to refocus his agenda on the economy. He said “serious people” in both parties should accept his offer. “I’m willing to work with Republicans on reforming our corporate tax code, as long as we use the money from transitioning to a simpler tax system for a significant investment in creating middleclass jobs,” Obama said. “That’s the deal.” But the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, complained that Obama’s plan was simply a repackaging of proposals the White House has always supported. “It’s the opposite of a concession,” said spokesman Brendan Buck, noting that Republicans want to link a corporate tax overhaul with changes in the individual tax code. In another sign of their sour relationship, Boehner and the White

House also dueled over the proposal’s rollout, with the speaker’s office saying officials there first learned about the plan from media reports. An Obama spokesman said the White House tried to tell Boehner’s staff about the plan a day in advance but the call was not returned. Like Republicans, the president previously has called for corporate tax reform to be coupled with an individual tax overhaul. But his new offer drops that demand and calls only for lowering the corporate rate from 35 percent to 28 percent, with an even lower effective tax rate of 25 percent for manufacturers. The White House also said the president will continue to seek changes to the individual tax rate as part of a larger “grand bargain” he wants with the GOP. But with the prospects of such a deal growing increasingly slim, Obama advisers say they’ve opted to isolate an area on taxes where they believe they have more agreement with

Republicans. Obama also wants lawmakers to pour one-time revenue generated from the tax overhaul into jobs programs, including infrastructure, manufacturing and community colleges. “If we’re going to give businesses a better deal, we’re going to give workers a better deal too,” the president said. Republicans have opposed using tax revenue to support more spending. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Tuesday that “everything should be negotiated, but certainly I’m not in support of it.” Administration officials said the jobs programs would be paid for with a one-time revenue boost from measures such as changing depreciation rules or having a one-time fee on earnings held overseas. But they wouldn’t put a price tag on the revenue total or the corporate tax overhaul at large. When Obama first unveiled his corporate tax plan last year, con-

gressional Republicans called for even deeper cuts for the business world. His campaign rival, Mitt Romney, wanted a 25 percent corporate tax rate. The U.S. has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, but many businesses avoid the full cost by taking advantage of deductions, credits and exemptions that Obama wants to eliminate. Obama wants to do away with corporate tax benefits like oil and natural gas industry subsidies, special breaks for the purchase of private jets and certain corporate tax shelters. He also wants to impose a minimum tax on foreign earnings, a move opposed by multinational corporations and perhaps the most contentious provision in the president’s plan. John Engler, president of the Business Roundtable, welcomed Obama’s call for lowering the corporate tax rate. But like many Republican lawmakers, he called for addressing individual tax rates at the same time and said he opposed using corporate tax overhaul revenue for “unrelated spending.” “Corporate tax reform should be part of a comprehensive fix for the individual and business tax codes, and corporate reform should be achieved in a revenue-neutral manner,” said Engler, who heads the association of business leaders. The backdrop for Obama’s remarks Tuesday was an Amazon fulfillment center, a massive, 1 million-square-foot warehouse. During a tour of the facility, Obama was shown how the company gets packages ready for delivery, from the employees who pull orders from three stories of floor-to-ceiling shelves, to loading into boxes sealed with water-activated tape and quality control.

AP Photo The remains of several burned and melted trucks are seen after an explosion at a propane gas company Tuesday in Tavares, Fla. In the foreground are several propane cylinders that exploded and landed in an area near the trucks. Eight people were injured, with at least three in critical condition. John Herrell of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said early Tuesday there were no fatalities despite massive blasts that ripped through the Blue Rhino propane plant late Monday night.

which consists of a couple of warehouses next to each other. The parking lot was littered with thousands of blackened 20-pound propane containers. Nearby, three 33,000-pound tanks of propane sat untouched. Lake County Battalion Chief Chris Croughwell said the hoses designed to spray water on the large tanks in case of fire, did not go off as planned because they had to be manually activated. “Most sane people don’t stick around for an event like this,” he added. Tavares Mayor Robert Wolfe said Tuesday that he was surprised to learn the hoses at the plant had to be manually activated. If Blue Rhino reopens the plant, Wolfe said he plans to raise the safety issue. “That way, it’s fail safe,” Wolfe said. “We’re lucky those tanks didn’t explode.” One of the large tanks had a small leak that was detected mid-morning, so fire officials poured water on it and later began draining it, Wolfe said. The threat was considered minimal and no evacuation was ordered, he said. The Florida Division of Emergency Management

responded overnight and briefed Gov. Rick Scott. Gene Williams, a third-shift maintenance worker at the plant, said he was at the back of the warehouse when he heard two loud explosions. Most of the workers were inside the facility, but there were about five in the parking lot. When he went to look outside, there was a fireball about 20-feet-by-20-feet about 100 yards from the plant’s loading dock in an area where the 20-pound propane canisters are stored on plastic pallets. After that, a forklift driver stumbled into the building. He had flesh hanging off his hands, and his legs and face were burned. Williams said he got the man in a van as the cylinders from the 20-pound tanks starting falling down around them. He said they were doing repairs and painting the tanks when one of the paint lines had broken, but it was repaired. The workers were getting ready (OTCBB:GTRY) to go home when the explosion happened. Based on what the forklift operator told him, the explo-

sion was likely caused by a “combination of human error and bad practices, possibly. I don’t want to speculate any further, that’s what the forklift driver was telling me.” Williams said the forklift driver told him, “‘I did what they told me to do, I did what they told me to do, and then this happened.’” “Something in that area must have triggered it. I don’t know if he did something or something else triggered it,” Williams said. Williams said they were able to cut off propane to the three big tanks. But they weren’t able to get to the switch for the cooling hoses. “It was too violent, too hot, to get in there and turn them on,” he said. Williams said one of the injured people was hit by a car trying to run across the road. The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed that 29-year-old Leesburg resident Kaghy Sam was struck by an SUV driven by 72-year-old Gene Batson on a road near the Blue Rhino plant. A statement from the FHP to The Associated Press said that Sam was running on the road “due to a large fire and several explosions” just before 11 p.m. Monday and “ran into the direct path” of Batson’s vehicle. Sam was flown to Ocala Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. No charges were filed in the accident. Blue Rhino is a subsidiary of Kansas-based national propane provider Ferrellgas. Spokesman Scott Brockelmeyer said Tuesday he didn’t have information available about the safety water hoses. “It’s as sobering a situation as you can possibly imagine,” Brockelmeyer said. “We have folks who are injured, and we’ve got Blue Rhino and Ferrellgas employees across the country who are keeping them in their prayers and sending good vibes their way.” Brockelmeyer said there were 14 full-time employees and 10 part-time workers in the plant when the explosions occurred Monday night. Ferrellgas did pay a $2,295

fine in November 2011 following an OSHA inspection that found a component at the end of an air hose used in the consumer tank refurbishing process was not present. Brockelmeyer said the company corrected the issue and added that “the process is performed in area away from where the tanks are filled…. so no product was being processed in that area.” Croughwell said firefighters who responded to the initial fire had to wait to enter plant site because conditions were so dangerous. Just as they were finally about to go in, four tractor-trailers parked next to the large propane tanks caught fire. If the large tanks exploded, Croughwell said, “it would have wiped us out.” Video footage on WESH-TV in Orlando showed fires burning through trucks used to transport propane tanks, which were parked at the plant. The fire sent plumes of smoke into the air hours after the blast. Keith said the explosions shook his house several miles from the plant. “It truly sounded like a car hit our house,” he said. Herrell said about 50 homes were evacuated Monday night but residents were allowed back in about four hours later. Marni Whitehead, 33, who lives less than a mile from the plant, said she was in bed ready to go to sleep when she heard a loud boom. She ran outside and saw other neighbors outside and then they saw the explosions. “We knew right away it was the plant, the propane plant,” Whitehead said. “After that, it was just sort of panic.” Whitehead likened the explosions to Fourth of July fireworks. “And it was just boom after boom after boom,” she said. Herrell said officials believe the fire was contained and wouldn’t spread to another part of the plant. According to the Leesburg Daily Commercial, the plant was built in 2004 and employs fewer than 50 people.

Bradley Manning acquitted FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was acquitted of aiding the enemy — the most serious charge he faced — but was convicted of espionage, theft and other charges Tuesday, more than


three years after he spilled secrets to WikiLeaks. The judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, deliberated for about 16 hours over three days before reaching her decision in a case that drew worldwide attention as supporters hailed Manning as a whistleblower. The U.S. government called him an anarchist computer hacker and attention-seeking traitor. Manning stood at attention, flanked by his attorneys, as the judge read her verdicts. He appeared not to react, though his attorney, David Coombs, smiled faintly when he heard not guilty on aiding the enemy, which carried a potential life

sentence. When the judge was done, Coombs put his hand on Manning’s back and whispered something to him, eliciting a slight smile on the soldier’s face. Manning was convicted on 19 of 21 charges, and he previously pleaded guilty to a charge involving an Icelandic cable. He faces up to 136 years in prison. His sentencing hearing begins Wednesday. Coombs came outside the court to a round of applause and shouts of “thank you” from a few dozen Manning supporters. “We won the battle, now we need to go win the war,” Coombs said of the sentencing phase. “Today is a good day, but Bradley is by no means out of the fire.” Supporters thanked him for his work. One slipped him a private note. Others asked questions about verdicts that they didn’t understand. Manning’s court-martial was unusual because he acknowledged giving

In the footage, airmen laughed and called targets “dead bastards.” A military investigation found troops mistook the camera equipment for weapons. Besides the aiding the enemy acquittal, Manning was also found not guilty of an espionage charge when the judge found prosecutors had not proved their assertion Manning started giving material to WikiLeaks in late 2009. Manning said he started the leaks in February the following year. Manning pleaded guilty earlier this year to lesser offenses that could have brought him 20 years behind bars, yet the government continued to pursue all but one of the original, more serious charges. Manning said during a pre-trial hearing in February he leaked the material to expose the U.S military’s “bloodlust” and disregard for human life, and what he considered American diplomatic deceit. He said he chose information he believed would not the harm the United States and he wanted to start a debate on military and foreign policy. He did not testify at his court-martial.

TAVARES, Fla. (AP) — A series of explosions rocked a central Florida propane gas plant, igniting a 200-foot high fireball, and sent the sound of “boom after boom after boom” through the neighborhood around it. Eight people were injured, with at least four in critical condition. John Herrell of the Lake County Sheriff ’s Office said early Tuesday that no one died despite massive blasts that ripped through the Blue Rhino propane plant property late Monday night. Officials initially scrambled to find more than a dozen employees after the explosions. Neighboring houses were evacuated, but no damage to them was reported. “Management is comfortable saying all of those they knew were there tonight have been accounted for,” he said. Tavares Fire Chief Richard Keith said possible causes of the explosion may be either equipment malfunction or human error. Sabotage was not suspected. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation, as did the Florida State Fire Marshal’s office. One person injured in the explosion was listed in critical condition at University of Florida Health Shands Hospital and three others were listed in critical condition at Orlando Regional Medical Center. Herrell said some others drove themselves to area hospitals. Tavares Fire Department Battalion Commander Eric Wages said five workers walked up to a command center firefighters set up near the plant Monday night with skin hanging off their arms, torso and faces. He said their arms were outstretched and they were in complete shock. The Blue Rhino plant, which is northwest of Orlando, refilled propane tanks typically used gas grills and other home uses. There were some 53,000 20-pound canisters at the plant on Monday. Smoke still billowed on Tuesday morning from a storage container on the property,

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Post and Courier, Charleston, S.C. on Big Brother in the wings: The U.S. government spends about $700 million a year to produce and broadcast articles, reports and commentary designed to reflect credit on itself and aimed at foreign audiences. Until July 1, it was not allowed to beam these products at Americans living in the United States. As a sponsor of the ban said, the government should not be allowed to aim its propaganda at U.S. citizens and taxpayers. That has all changed. Thanks to a law signed by President Obama last January, the ban on domestic dissemination of the products of the agency that oversees the government’s huge propaganda effort came to an end at the beginning of this month. The name of that agency is the “independent” Broadcasting Board of Governors or BBG. It may smack of paranoia to suggest that the initials really stand for Big Brother Government, but there is real cause for concern. To begin, the board is not truly independent. Its members are nominated by the president and approved by the Senate. There are supposed to be four from each major political party, plus the serving Secretary of State. That means that there will always be a tilt in favor of the policies of the White House. As it happens, today the position of board chairman is vacant, along with four other seats, leaving governance of the board to only four members, one of whom is Secretary of State John Kerry. This board sets policy for the Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the Middle East Broadcasting Networks (Alhurra TV and Radio Sava), Radio Free Asia and the Office of Cuba Broadcasting (Radio and TV Marti). … Every day of the year we see American politicians of all stripes demonstrate their overriding concern for political power and winning elections by “spinning” facts their way. Giving the White House control, however indirectly, of a major broadcasting operation aimed at a domestic audience is an invitation for abuse. It is asking for trouble. The ban on domestic distribution of BBG’s products should be restored by Congress as quickly as possible. Vicksburg (Miss.) Post on boiling point in filibuster battle: The U.S. government is dysfunctional. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid protested too much on “Meet the Press” about the U.S. Senate’s 60 percent requirement to pass most legislation and approve presidential nominees. This allows filibusters, or long speeches, to stall bills and nominees. One of the most recent filibusters was in March by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., against domestic drone use. “Is there anyone out there in the real world that believes that what’s going on in Congress of the United States is good?” Sen. Reid asked. “Our approval rating is lower than North Korea’s.” Hyperbole aside, Sen. Reid is objecting to Republicans, who comprise 46 of the Senate’s 100 members, holding up nominations by President Obama to the federal bureaucracy. He said 15 nominees have been stalled an average of nine months. Attorney General Eric Holder, one of Obama’s more controversial first-term appointees, has been held in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over key data in the Fast and Furious gun smuggling scheme. Janet Napolitano, who just resigned as President Obama’s homeland security secretary to head the University of California system, has been obtuse about intrusive pat downs and full-body scans by the Transportation Security Administration. Lisa Jackson, until February the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, imposed the president’s radical environmentalist agenda through regulatory fiat, circumventing Congress. Already, 15,000 megawatts worth of coal power have been taken offline, with another 37,000 scheduled over the next 10 years. .. Indeed, Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, top Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee that reviewed McCarthy’s nomination, announced last week that the president’s EPA nominee had made enough concessions that he would cancel a filibuster threat, according to Politico. Sen. Reid maintains that pure democracy should prevail in the Senate. However, the Senate itself is not a democratic body. California’s 38 million people elect only two senators, the same number as elected by Wyoming’s 576,000. The president is actually “elected” by the Electoral College, which sometimes chooses someone who did not get the most votes, as happened with President Bush in 2000. The U.S. Supreme Court is not elected at all. The Founders did not intend America to be a pure democracy, but to have such non-majoritarian mechanisms as the filibuster to check the excesses of democracy and protect the rights of minorities. The majority usually gets its way in the end, but not by steamrolling the loyal opposition.

And one day, maybe, you will grow up. The caterwauling in the Daniels controversy about the importance of academic inquiry is particularly rich, given that Zinn didn’t believe in it. He had no use for objectivity and made history a venture in rummaging through the historical record to find whatever was most politically useful, without caring much about strict factual accuracy. “Knowing history is less about understanding the past than changing the future,” he said. He joined his propagandistic purpose to a moral obtuseness that refused to distinguish between the United States and its enemies, including Nazi Germany. Daniels was right not to want Indiana school kids to be subjected to Zinn in the classroom (what they choose to read on their own time is another matter), and right to worry that “A People’s History” was part of teacher training. The former governor’s critics are willing to look the other way at Zinn’s transgressions against his own academic discipline; for them, defending a fellow man of the left and shouting “censorship” are more important and congenial pursuits than maintaining standards. The sin of Mitch Daniels, it turns out, is to take history more seriously than they do. Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail:

Obituaries Dr. James Stockstill

Adah Johnson

ber of several local service clubs and lodges. He recalled the Sidney Jaycees Baseball excursions as the most memorable. His real dedication was to his practice, becoming a member of the Ohio National Associations Eastern and Western States Veterinary Associations. He enjoyed speaking to local, equine, bovine and farm groups, as well as 4-H and elementary schools. He was a 50-year member of the Sidney First United Methodist Church and in 2006 joined the Sidney United Church of Christ. During his practice he treated small and large animals both, including some exotics. In working with many strange animals and interesting owners, Jim could have filled a book with stories of their adventures. He would often relate some of these stories, which still made him laugh. His passion in life was veterinary medicine. After 40 years of practice, Dr. Stockstill and his wife Patricia moved to Naples, Fla., to find the sun. After she died in 2005, he moved back to Sidney, and in 2006 married Louanne Mentges, a former 1949 Sidney High School classmate. In following with Dr. Stockstill’s wishes, his body will be cremated. A private memorial service will be at the convenience of the family. His final resting place will be at Graceland Cemetery. Arrangements are in the care of the Cromes Funeral Home & Crematory, 302 S. Main Ave. Memorials may be made to Ohio State Veterinary Association Services, 1472 Manning Pkwy, Powell, OH 43065. Condolences may be expressed to the Stockstill family at our website, www.

SIDNEY — Dr. James “JT” “Jim” “Doc” Stockstill, 82, of 14250 Kirkwood Road, Sidney, passed away at 10:05 p.m. Sunday, July 28, 2013, at Fair Haven County Home. He was born on May 22, 1931, in Sidney, Ohio, the son of the late Joslin and Louise (Oartel) Stockstill. In 1951, he married Patricia Kies, who preceded him in death in 2005 in Florida. Jim is survived by his wife Louanne (Blake) Mentges Stockstill; two children; Ann Heiland and husband John, and John Stockstill II and wife Elaine, both of Sidney; three grandchildren; Corinne Caranna and husband Mike of Akron, Ohio, Erica Majernik and husband Dave of Cleveland, Ohio, and John Stockstill III and wife Bonnie; five great-grandchildren; Andrew and Alexis Caranna of Akron, Ohio, and Tyler, Ryan and Allyson Majernik of Cleveland, Ohio; and one sister, Louise Yoho and husband Delbert of Sidney. He was preceded in death by his brother, John Stockstill, who gave his life in the service of his country in 1945. Dr. Stockstill was a proud graduate of The Ohio State University. There, he received a bachelor of science degree, and a doctorate of veterinary medicine in 1956. He was an ardent Buckeye fan of both basketball and football. After graduation he started a practice in Sidney, where his grandfather practiced for 30 years (present location of the Hampton Inn). Another veterinarian, and cousin to Jim, Raymond Stockstill practiced in Cleveland, making the veterinarian business a family tradition. While in practice, he became a mem-

TROY — A memorial celebration in honor of the life of Adah Johnson will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013, at Riverside Cemetery, Troy, Ohio, with Pastor Bonita Wood of Tipp City UMC officiating. Adah, age 76, of Port Charlotte, Fla., formerly of Troy, Ohio, passed away Feb. 4, 2013, with family by her side. A character with a capital “C,” she was known as much for her style as she was for her good cooking, sense of humor, tempestuous temper and signature silver streaked hair. Adah made the best carrot cake and brownies you’d want to sink your teeth into, could knit an entire wardrobe and

did crosswords in ink! Adah is survived by her husband of 56 years, Roy E. Johnson. Fully devoted to her children and grandchildren, she also is survived by four sons, Brian Johnson (Rita Burkhart) of Salem, Ala., Keith Johnson of Houston, Texas, Kevin Johnson (wife, Sheri) of Tipp City, Ohio, and Marty Johnson (wife, Noël) of Powell, Ohio; and five grandchildren, Justin, Amanda, Lauren, Allyson and Max. Adah lived life large and that sentiment is exemplified as we can almost hear her utter those famous words once again, “ I am woman, hear me roar!” We love and miss you Adah.

Did you know that there are more than 42,000 highway bridges in Ohio? The state of Ohio has the second largest number of bridges in the United States. One of the most unique bridges in the state is the Y Bridge located in Zanesville. A Y bridge is shaped like the letter “y.” The first Y Bridge in Zanesville was built in 1813. It was an open wooden bridge which joined Zanesville on the east side of the Muskingum River with the north and south sides of the Licking River. In its early years, this was a toll bridge. Travelers had to pay anywhere from three cents to seventy-five cents to cross. The bridge fell into the river just a few years after it was constructed. Both the second and third bridges were covered bridges. Construction on the third Y Bridge began This is an aerial photo of the Zanesville Y Bridge circa in 1832. The third bridge 1930-1950. was built quickly because a Courtesy of the Ohio Historical Society flood threatened the area. While it was still under construction, the supports under the eastern span were in danger of collapsing. Support wedges were put in place until the bridge could be completed. Officials involved in the construction of the bridge ordered the removal of the wedges supporting the construction when the bridge was finished. The reason for this was so the flood waters could carry the wedges away without taking the bridge. When the wedges were removed, however, the eastern span of the bridge fell into the Toledo • river killing two men. • Cleveland • But the bridge was completed and it remained in use • • for 68 years. The fourth Y Bridge was opened in 1902. • • Zanesville gained notoriety for its bridge by the time Columbus the fourth one was built in 1902. Residents bragged • Dayton that it was the only one like it in the world. Zanesville • became known as “The Y Bridge City.” • Cincinnati • In 1979 the bridge was demolished because it was no longer safe. The fifth and current Y Bridge was constructed in 1984. Today it carries travelers of the former National Road over the rivers. Akron

For Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Expect to meet new faces and visit new places today, because it's an exciting day! This suits you because you are restless and ready for action. (Right?) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Respect your moneymaking ideas, because they might be worthwhile. Some might be silly, but others could be geniuslike. Who knows? Write them down for future consideration. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Today the Moon is in your sign, dancing with wild, wacky Uranus. This makes you independent, self-reliant and energetic. You also might dream up inventive, original ideas! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Research can pay off today, because you instinctively will know how to go for the jugular. You'll find what you're looking for if you trust your instincts. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Expect to meet a character today -someone unusual or unorthodox. Perhaps someone you know might surprise you by doing or saying something shocking. Your involvement with others will stimulate you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relations with bosses, parents and people in authority are unpredictable today. Be aware of this. Things could go swimmingly, or on the other hand, you might do something that awakens the sleeping giant. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Travel plans might be changed, delayed or rescheduled today. Expect surprise adventures and opportunities to learn new things. (You're eager for adventure.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Keep your eye on your bank accounts and shared property, because things are unstable here. However, something unusual might occur that actually pleases you. (Fingers crossed.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Changeable moods can affect your relations with others, especially partners and close friends. You might get a better idea of what your relationship is all about -- a breakthrough in understanding. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your work routine will be interrupted today by staff shortages, new staff or unexpected surprises. So that you can handle this skillfully, allow extra room for you to navigate your day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Creative ideas are flowing today. Sports events might hold a few surprises. Parents should be vigilant, because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your home routine will be interrupted today. Surprise company might knock at your door. Small appliances might break down. You might run out of coffee or something you need. ("Oh no!") YOU BORN TODAY You have a great imagination and yet you are realistic. You are original and convincing about your views. In fact, many of you are crusaders about a cause. Because of your fervent beliefs, you often are caught up in controversy. This year is wonderfully social for you and also a year that will beautifully improve all your relationships. Birthdate of: Jerry Garcia, musician; Herman Melville, author; Tanya Reid, actress. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Jewel heist on Riviera raises security questions

AP Photo

Security guards stand close to a brass plate reading “establishment under video surveillance”, in front of the Carlton hotel, in Cannes, southern France, Tuesday, July 30, 2013, the scene of a daylight raid last Sunday. A staggering 103 million euro ($136 million) worth of jewels and diamonds were stolen Sunday from the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel in Cannes, in one of Europe’s biggest jewelry heists recent years, police said. French Riviera hotel was hosting a temporary jewelry exhibit over the summer of the prestigious Leviev diamond house, which is owned by Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev.

“Given that civilian possession of weapons is much less available, they’re unlikely to have weapons because they’re unlikely to be facing people with weapons.” Zakaria Rami, a union representative at the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel in Cannes who has worked there for 16 years, said show organizers didn’t formally advise police of the show. Only a few guards hired by the jeweler provided security in a hotel showroom site where the robber struck on Sunday. “If police knew there was $100 million in jewelry, I think they would have put a patrol car out there,” he said.

The show was far from inconspicuous: One-story tall, bright pink banners covered the front facade of the Carlton, one of the most famous hotels on La Croisette — Cannes’ best-known seaside promenade. Rami wasn’t at the Carlton in 1994 when a gunman opened fire at the hotel, injuring a guard before making off with $45 million in jewels. That robbery prompted the city to suspend the gem shows that draw jewelers to the French Riviera each summer, hoping to catch the eye of travelers with money to burn. The ban expired years ago, and the shows resumed.

PARIS (AP) — The diamond show was staged on the ground floor of a hotel that thieves had targeted before — and which, in fact, had featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s high-karat classic “To Catch a Thief.” The guards were few and unarmed, and nobody thought to tell the police about the tens of millions worth of gems on display for more than a month. As more details emerged Tuesday, questions grew about how the collection was so vulnerable, and how a single thief with a handgun could make off with one of the biggest hauls in history — a total of $136 million in jewels — without firing a shot. It was the second time in a week that unarmed guards were overwhelmed by jewel thieves. At a Swiss prison near the French border, a member of the notorious “Pink Panther” gang escaped after accomplices rammed a gate and overpowered unarmed guards with bursts from Kalashnikovs. Private security guards are generally prohibited from carrying weapons in France and Switzerland — that’s reserved for police — but special authorizations can be granted when high-value assets are at stake. “The public carrying of weapons — even by security guards and police officers — is much less visible throughout Europe than it is in parts of North America,” said Keith Krause, program director of the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey, a nonprofit that monitors global views of weapons.

AP Photo A supporter of Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi raises his fist during a women’s march against Egyptian Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi in Nasr City, Cairo, Egypt, Tuesday, July 30. Egypt’s military gave the ousted president his first contact with the outside world since it removed him from office, allowing Europe’s top diplomat to meet with Mohammed Morsi in his secret detention as she urges all sides to move on toward a peaceful transition. Despite the military’s gesture and attempts by some in the civilian leadership to ease a security crackdown on Morsi’s supporters, efforts at a solution to Egypt’s crisis have so far hit a brick wall.

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s detained ex-president is well and keeping up to date with developments through news media, the top EU diplomat said Monday after she made the first visit since a military coup deposed him July 3. Catherine Ashton of the European Union told reporters she had a long late-night meeting with Morsi. She said she saw the facility where he is being held but did not know where it is. It was Morsi’s first contact with the outside world since he was toppled in a military coup on July 3. Ashton also called for an inclusive political process and an end to the violence that has left Egypt deeply divided between opponents and supporters of the ousted Islamist leader. She was allowed to meet with Morsi for two hours Monday evening, saying she was able to see the facilities where Morsi is being held, but she does not know his location. Ashton was not blindfolded, but the location of her meeting with Morsi remained shrouded in mystery. EU officials put their “faith fully in the interim authorities to make sure that she got there safely and returned safely which is what turned out to be the case. Everything was fine,” EU spokesman Michael Mann said. EU security personnel must have had enough guidance on travel and location to back the exceptional excursion. “She would not have gone had she not been happy with the security arrangements,” said Mann. Ashton said Morsi “has access to information, in terms of TV and newspapers, so we were able to talk about the situation, and we were able to talk about the need to move forward.” “I sent him good wishes from people here, and he asked me to pass on wishes back, and of course I’ve tried to make sure that his family knows that he is well,” she said. She declined to reveal more details about their conversation. Her three-day trip to Cairo was her second since the military coup, as she tries to help find a

way out of an increasingly bloody and complex crisis in Egypt that has killed more than 270 people. She said she returned to Cairo at the request of several interlocutors in Egypt and elsewhere so that the EU could engage with different political parties. Ashton also met with the country’s interim leadership, including army chief and Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, as well as representatives of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood in search of a path out of the crisis. “This great country has to move forward and has to do so in an inclusive way,” she said. Interim Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei also said the top priority was to end all violence first, then to engage in a process that includes the Muslim Brotherhood as the country tries to rebuild after more than two years of turmoil that began with the 2011 uprising that ousted autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak. He described the ouster of Morsi as a “correction” to the path Egypt has taken since Mubarak was toppled. Despite ElBaradei’s appeal, neither side showed any sign of willingness to make the concessions needed for reconciliation. The Brotherhood rejects calls to work with the new leaders, insists that Morsi be reinstated and called for more protests on Tuesday. The government, meanwhile, has made no conciliatory gestures in its crackdown on the Brotherhood and has forged ahead with a transition plan that provides for parliamentary and presidential elections early next year. Speaking to reporters alongside Ashton, ElBaradei said an inclusive approach is needed, but one that works within the framework of the military-backed roadmap. “Our immediate priority, as we shared with Lady Ashton, is to stop violence in all its forms and shape and try every possible way to find a peaceful solution,” he said. “I very much hope that the Brotherhood, the Salafis… liberals, everybody who is Egyptian has to be part of that process.”

U.S. limbo for Nazi suspects ordered out MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — At least 10 suspected Nazi war criminals ordered deported by the United States never left the country, according to an Associated Press review of Justice Department data — and four are living in the United States today. All remained eligible for public benefits such as Social Security until they exhausted appeals, and in one case even beyond. Quiet American legal limbo was the fate of all 10 men uncovered in the AP review. The reason: While the U.S. wanted them out, no other country was willing to take them in. That’s currently the case of Vladas Zajanckauskas in Sutton, Massachusetts. It’s the case of Theodor Szehinskyj in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Of Jakiw Palij in New York City. And of John Kalymon in Troy, Michigan. All have been in the same areas for years, stripped of citizenship and ordered deported, yet able to carry out their lives in familiar surroundings. Dozens of other Nazi war crimes suspects in the U.S. were also entitled to Social Security and other public benefits for years as they fought deportation. The United States can deport people over evidence of involvement in Nazi war crimes, but cannot put such people on trial because the alleged crimes did not take place on American soil. The responsibility to prosecute would lie with the countries where the crimes were committed or ordered — if the suspects ever end up there. In the 34 years since the Justice Department created an office to find and deport Nazi suspects, the agency has initiated legal proceedings against 137 people. Less than half — at least 66 — have been removed by deportation, extradition or voluntary departure. At least 20 died while their cases were pending. In at least 20 other cases, U.S. officials agreed not to pursue or enforce deportation orders, often because of poor health, according to a 2008 report by the Justice Department. In some cases, the U.S. government agreed not to file deportation proceedings in exchange for cooperation in other investigations, the report said. But the key stumbling block has been the lack of political will by countries in Europe to accept those ordered to leave. “Without any doubt, the greatest single frustration has been our inability, in quite a number of cases now, to carry out the deportation orders that we’ve won in federal courts. We can’t carry them out because governments of Europe refuse to take these people back,” Eli Rosenbaum, the longtime head of the Justice Department agency charged with investigating accused Nazi war criminals, said in the 2011 documentary “Elusive Justice: The Search for Nazi War Criminals.” Justice officials declined to make Rosenbaum available for an interview. The four men still living in the U.S despite deportation orders have all exhausted appeals: • Zajanckauskas, 97, remains in Massachusetts 11 years after authorities first began the denaturalization process. He was ordered deported to his native Lithuania in 2007, and ran out of appeals in 2010 but remains in the U.S. because other countries, including Lithuania, won’t accept him, Rosenbaum has said. Zajanckauskas took part in the “brutal liquidation” of the Warsaw Ghetto, according to Rosenbaum. Zajanckauskas, who didn’t return a message from the AP, has denied being in Warsaw at the time. • Szehinskyj, 89, remains in Pennsylvania nearly 14 years after DOJ began a case against him. He was denaturalized and ordered deported to his native Ukraine, Poland or Germany, and exhausted all appeals in 2006. The Department of Justice has said no country has been willing to accept him. Authorities say Szehinskyj was an armed guard at Nazi concentration camps in Germany and Poland, a claim he has denied. Szehinskyj’s attorney didn’t return messages from the AP.

Judge: 3 PSU ex-officials to stand trial HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s ex-president and two former top school administrators were ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges accusing them of a cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Prosecutors showed enough evidence during a two-day preliminary hearing to war- Schultz rant a trial for ex-President Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, District Judge William Wenner concluded. Wenner called it “a tragic day for Penn State University.” The men engaged in a “conspiracy of silence,” the lead state prosecutor, Bruce Beemer, said during his closing argument. They covered up their failure to tell police about a 2001 allegation that Sandusky was molesting a boy in a university locker room shower, even after they were aware that police investigated complaints about Sandusky

showering with boys in 1998, Beemer said. The key testimony centered on a series of emails among the three defendants that discussed the 1998 and 2001 cases and the testimony of Mike McQueary, a former team assistant and quarterback who said he Spanier had immediately told Schultz, Curley and the late longtime football coach Joe Paterno that he had seen Sandusky molesting a boy in the shower in 2001. Sandusky, a defensive coordinator under Paterno until his retirement in 1999, was convicted last year of 45 counts of child sexual abuse. He maintains his innocence and is appealing a 30- to 60-year state prison term. Anthony Lubrano, a Penn State trustee who watched the two days of testimony, said he had not expected Wenner to throw out the case, given the

low level of evidence necessary to send the case to trial. However, he said, “if you get an unbiased jury (at a trial), it’ll be hard to get those charges to stick.” Spanier testified to a grand jury that he was unaware of the 1998 investigation while Curley and Curley Schultz testified that McQueary reported only that Sandusky and the boy were engaged in naked, inappropriate horseplay that made him uncomfortable. Once the defendants became aware of an investigation into Sandusky in 2010 or 2011, they did nothing to stop it, obstruct it or hide evidence, their lawyers said. “What was reported was not a report of any activity that was sexual in nature,” Spanier told the grand jury in testimony read aloud in court Tuesday. “I know better than to jump to conclusions about things like that.”

The three were charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. Those charges include allegations of hiding evidence from investigators and lying to the grand jury. Penn State and the Paterno family declined to comment. Curley and Schultz were initially charged in November 2011, when Sandusky was arrested, and accused of perjury and failure to properly report the incident. Spanier was forced out as president at that time. A year later, he was charged with covering up a complaint about Sandusky while additional charges were filed against Curley and Schultz. Spanier remains a faculty member on administrative leave. Paterno was fired and died in January 2012.

Police: Hyde’s case officially closed

which ranked only 17th in the league last season. With All-Pro receiver A.J. Green sidelined by a knee injury in camp, Eifert has been getting the ball more than many others with a lot more experience. Cincinnati may have found someone to take the defense’s focus off Green. “He’s done everything we thought and more,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A little over a week after he was suspended by Ohio State coach Urban Meyer for an alleged assault against a woman, running back Carlos Hyde had his case dropped on Tuesday by Columbus police. Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner said the alleged victim chose not to pursue charges against the Buckeyes’ leading scorer and second-leading rusher a year ago. “We were in the middle of our investigation,” Weiner said. “The most important thing left to do was interview the (alleged) victim. She met with investigators on Saturday and informed officers that she didn’t want to pursue charges.” Weiner said the case against Hyde was officially closed. Hyde had been suspended from all team activities in the wake of the incident, which occurred July 20 at a downtown bar. Ohio State and Meyer did not immediately offer comment on whether Hyde will be reinstated to the team. Hyde, a 6-foot-2, 242-pound senior from Naples, Fla., scored 17 touchdowns and 102 points to lead the Buckeyes to a 12-0 record last fall. He gained 970 yards on 185 carries, coming within 30 yards of becoming the first running back in Meyer’s coaching career to reach 1,000 yards in a season. At the time of his suspension — the same day three other Buckeyes were disciplined for off-the-field legal problems — Meyer said, “I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football program are constantly reminded of and are expected to honor. There are also expectations

Post 43 falls in NABF quarters Ends year with 41-14 record TDN Staff Report

Americans have big day at swimming worlds


July 31, 2013

Josh Brown

Troy Post 43 coach Frosty Brown wasn’t sure where his young pitching staff would take them entering the season. But 41 wins later, Post 43 found itself three wins away from winning the National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF) World Series in Youngstown. That, however, is where Post 43’s season came to an end this past weekend — losing to the Maryland Monarchs, the eventual tournament champion, by a score of 14-1 in the quarterfinal round. Troy Post 43 ended the season with a record of 41-14. “We lost to a very, very fine ballclub. We got beat by a very good team,” Brown said. The Monarchs put two runs on scoreboard in the second inning and never looked back — scoring two more in the third and fourth, then adding three runs in the fifth and five in the

sixth. Pitcher Trenton Wood started for Post 43, before being relieved by Luke Veldman in the third. Five different pitchers saw time on the hill for Post 43. On offense, Nick Sanders added a double for Post 43, which scored its run in the away seventh. The Monarchs finished the game with 16 hits compared to Post 43’s six. Following the loss, Brown said he was proud of what his team accomplished this season. After all, he didn’t even know what to expect coming into the year. “We had a pretty young pitching staff and we managed to win 40 games,” Brown said. “We really did have an outstanding year. We beat teams like the Dayton Dodgers. We had success against out of state teams, took a lot of games against teams from Chattanooga, teams from Nashville. We beats teams from Cincinnati. “We really did have a great year. I look forward to a lot of those kids coming back next year.”

Pistons acquire Jennings DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons have made another move in their busy offseason, acquiring Brandon Jennings as they desperately try to end their four-year postseason drought. Detroit landed the point guard from the Milwaukee Bucks for point guard Brandon Knight and two prospects, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person, who spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the trade hasn't been announced, said Jennings has agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract with the Pistons. The person said Detroit will also give up seldom-used Ukrainian center Viacheslav Kravtsov and forward Khris Middleton in the deal. Detroit has been active this offseason, signing free agents Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome along with bringing back Will Bynum. The Pistons signed Billups in part to mentor Knight, but have chosen to replace him with Jennings. They're in a win-now mode, and must figure Jennings gives them a better shot to have success this season than Knight, who hasn't shown he can be a reliable point guard. Milwaukee drafted Jennings 10th overall in 2009 out of Oak Hill Academy and he averaged 17 points, 5.7 assists and 2.4 turnovers over four seasons with the Bucks, who could've matched any offer made to the restricted free agent this offseason. He averaged a career-high 6.5 assists and 17.5 points last season, a year after averaging a career-best 19.1 points a game.

Crash kills A&M lineman, Utah recruit, teenager By the Associated Press Damontre Moore helped recruit Polo Manukainiu to Texas A&M and remembered the day the two met. Manukainiu was still in high school, even then a fearsome figure at 6-foot-5 and some 275 pounds. Beneath that mammoth frame, though, was a young man with sweet and caring personality, a huge smile and kind words for everyone fortunate enough to know him. "He was this huge kid," Moore told The Associated Press in a phone interview from New York Giants training camp. "I'd been in college already for like two years and he was this huge monster who had at least two inches over me and he was so intimidating. And when he talked he was the kindest person in the world. He was like the gentle giant." Texas A&M said Tuesday that Manukainiu, a 19-year-old redshirt freshman for the Aggies, was among three people killed in a single-car rollover crash in the high desert of northern New Mexico, stunning both schools just days before fall practices begin. Also killed where 18-year-old Utah recruit Gaius "Keio" Vaenuku and 13-year-old Andrew "Lolo" Uhatafe. The wreck happened Monday evening on U.S. 550 near Cuba, N.M., about 85 miles north of Albuquerque, as the group of five was returning from Salt Lake City to suburban Dallas, where three of them had ties to prep football power Trinity High School in Euless. The southbound 2002 Toyota Sequoia drifted off the sagebrush-lined highway, New Mexico State Police spokesman Emmanuel T. Gutierrez said.

Red, white and blue night: BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Missy Franklin got the Americans rolling. Then Katie Ledecky really fired ‘em up. By the end of the night, the U.S. team was awash in medals at the world swimming championships. Franklin and Ledecky each won her second gold medal of the meet, Matt Grevers led a 1-2 American finish in the backstroke, and there was plenty of reason to celebrate for the red, white and blue on Tuesday. “We’ve had an absolutely incredible evening,” Franklin said. “I’m so proud of all my teammates.” In all, the Americans claimed three golds, two silvers and a bronze — a strong meet for most nations, certainly quite a haul in a mere two hours. “A big night for us,” said Bob Bowman, head coach of the U.S. men’s team. Everyone was raving about Ledecky, only 16 but already well on her way to becoming one of the country’s great distance swimmers. She obliterated the world record in the 1,500-meter freestyle, which may be a non-Olympic event for the women but did nothing to diminish the magnitude of her accomplishment. After going stroke for stroke with Denmark’s Lotte Friis most of the race, with both well under world-record pace, Ledecky really turned it on over the final 200 and beat the mark by more than 6 seconds. Friis also went under the old record, and all it got her was silver. “It was motivating watching Katie destroy the world record from the ready

room,” Grevers said. “That really got us psyched.” Franklin cruised through a demanding double, easily winning the 100 backstroke before returning about an hour later to post the second-fastest time in the semifinals of the 200 free. “It’s tough, but it’s fun,” the 18-yearold said. “I’m super happy with my 100 back. It really got me pumped up for the 200 free.” Grevers touched ahead of teammate David Plummer in the 100 backstroke, and there were Americans on the podium in all five finals. Conor Dwyer picked up a silver behind France’s Yannick Agnel in the 200 free, and Jessica Hardy chipped in with a bronze in the 100 breaststroke won by Lithuania’s Ruta Meilutyte. The only disappointment for the U.S. was Ryan Lochte, who labored to a fourth-place finish in the 200 free. “It wasn’t my night,” the three-time Olympian said. “But I have to put it behind me because I still have many races to swim.” He hopes to compete in seven events in Barcelona, despite not being able to train as much as usual this year while taking part in his reality television show, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” “It was kind of a tough swim for him,” Bowman said. “He has obviously not had a season with his characteristic preparation. But he’s racing tough. He’ll be back tomorrow. He’ll be fine.” Ledecky is clearly in top form. She nearly broke the world record in winning the 400 free before leaving no

Americans dominate at swimming worlds

doubt about the 1,500, touching in a time 15 minutes, 36.53 seconds — nearly a half-lap ahead of the line superimposed on the video screen marking the pace of Kate Ziegler’s mark from six years ago, 15:42.54. “She’s probably made in the same factory as Michael Phelps,” marveled Mereia Belmonte of Spain, who finished far back in fourth. Friis took silver in 15:38.88, with New Zealand’s Lauren Boyle grabbing

the bronze. “I knew that world record was going down tonight, but 6 seconds!” Franklin said. “All of us were totally in awe.” Ledecky looks even stronger than she did last year while winning Olympic gold in the 800 free, a stunning breakthrough for someone barely known on the international stage. Naturally, after that performance, she arrived in Barcelona dealing with the weight of hefty expectations. Plus, she decided to take on an exhausting program that also includes the 800 free. No problem. “I knew we were going pretty fast, and I figured that whoever was going to come out on top was probably going to get the world record,” said Ledecky, who’s going into her junior year of high school. “So I just had to be careful not to push it too early or push it too late and just touch the wall first.” Franklin breezed to victory in the 100 back in 58.42 seconds. After capturing four golds and a bronze at the London Olympics, the recent high school graduate is trying to join Phelps as the only swimmers to win eight events at a major championship. She is now 2 for 2 at the Palau Sant Jordi, adding to her gold in the 4x100 free relay. Australia’s Emily Seebohm won silver and Japan’s Aya Terakawa bronze. After the medal ceremony, Franklin hustled off to get ready for the 200 free semifinals. She barely qualified for the final of that event in London and was edged out for a bronze medal by onehundredth of a second.

with regard to behavior. I expect our players to conduct themselves responsibly and appropriately and they will be held accountable for their actions.” The alleged victim approached police officers early on July 20 and said she was assaulted inside a bar at 303 S. Front St. Police looked into the allegation but Weiner said the case came to an end when she declined to pursue charges. Ohio State opens its fall camp on Sunday. The Buckeyes’ opener is Aug. 31 against Buffalo at Ohio

Stadium. In addition to Hyde, the other players disciplined on July 22 were star cornerback Bradley Roby and freshmen recruits Marcus Baugh, a tight end, and defensive lineman Tim Gardner. Each was involved in a separate incident. Roby was arrested in Bloomington, Ind., and is facing preliminary charges of misdemeanor battery resulting in bodily injury for making contact with a bar employee. He was prevented by Meyer from representing Ohio State at last week’s Big

Ten football meetings in Chicago. Baugh was removed from all team activities and will also sit out the first game of the season after being arrested for underage possession of alcohol and possessing a fake ID. Gardner, from Indianapolis was sent home and will not be a part of the 2013 team after he was charged by Columbus police with obstruction of official business. Meyer has faced withering criticism in recent months for not meting out stiff discipline or control-

ling his players during his previous tenure as coach at Florida. Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who played for Meyer at Florida, was arrested and charged with murder earlier this year and dozens of Gators players were arrested while Meyer was in charge there. Asked about Hyde’s situation during the Big Ten meetings, Meyer said, “We just have to evaluate the facts. And once I evaluate the facts, then we’ll make some decisions.”

said. “He’s just one of those guys that when he makes a play, you kind of look around and see if anybody else saw what he just did. “He’s running routes and catching the ball. He’s very natural at what he does. He can beat man coverage no problem. He can beat zones. He’s got a great feel for the game.” Those who have covered him the first five days of camp have been impressed. Eifert comes up with the ball even when there’s someone right on top of him. “He’s got a different skill-set than a lot of tight ends, I think, as far as the way he runs routes,” cornerback Terence Newman said. “He’s a big guy, but he moves kind of like he could be a big wideout. It’s kind of like the 49ers, what they do with Vernon Davis. He’s

versatile and he can do anything they ask him to do. “He’s going to be somebody to be reckoned with this year, for sure.” That was the plan. Green emerged into one of the NFL’s best receivers during his first two seasons, but Cincinnati hasn’t been able to develop a consistent complement. Green had 97 catches for 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. The Bengals’ next-best receiver was Andrew Hawkins with only 51 catches for 533 yards and four touchdowns. No other receiver had more than 18 catches. Eifert was a dependable receiver at Notre Dame, where he lined up in the slot and at wide receiver positions. The Bengals plan to use him more like a receiver in two tight-end formations with Jermaine Gresham.

Given his progress in camp, it looks like that will be an option from the outset. “It’s an extra piece,” Hawkins said. “Every year, guys are added to the offense, whether at wide receiver, running back, tight end. There’s somebody new with unique abilities that will change things up a little bit. “He’s just another piece added to the offense. Hopefully it goes well for us, and so far it has. He’s done extremely well this camp and has such a great feel for the game.” The Bengals had two main questions about Eifert: How well can he block and how quickly can he pick up the offense? They’ll learn more about the blocking during preseason games. For now, he’s working on figuring out what’s expected in the passing game.
