Don’t drink and dance Board questions use of Breathalizers at school dances BY JOYELL NEVINS RECORD HERALD EDITOR JNEVINS @ TCNEWSNET. COM TIPP CITY - Tippecanoe High school students may soon have to do more than buy a ticket to get into a Tippecanoe dance. The Student Senate is pushing for students to take a Breathalizer test as well. The test would be administered at random as people entered the gym. “Drinking is a bigger and bigger problem,” said Senate president Bethany Feitshans in a presentation to the Board of Education, “[At the dances] you can smell it on people; you can just tell.”

Assistant secretary Alex Abboud added, “It’s a bigger problem than some people realize.” The discussion originated with the dance debacle at Homecoming last year, where a large student population left the dance after a much smaller number of students was told to stop ‘inappropriate’ dancing. Since then, a dance policy has been implemented as to what constitutes ‘inappropriate.’ The senate feels that alcohol increases this type of dancing and behavior. “We see it on the dance floor [results from drinking],” said Abboud, “The [Breathalizer test] really would clean up a lot on the dancing.” See BOE, page 2

Brad Stapleton and Margory Johnson ride in the Mum Festival parade after she did, in fact, say yes to his proposal of marriage.

Popping the question Mum-style BY JOYELL NEVINS RECORD HERALD EDITOR JNEVINS @ TCNEWSNET. COM TIPP CITY - Brad Stapleton knew a year ago that he wanted to marry his then girlfriend Margory Johnson. With the help of his high school buddy Ian Jensen and a host of other conspirators, he was able to pop the question in style during the Mum Festival parade this past Saturday. The 2007 Tippecanoe grad and his fiance met at Bowling Green University, and dated for three and a half years. They’ve watched the parade every year together in that time. Since Stapleton lives on Main Street in Tipp City, they get a front row seat. So when Stapleton decided he wanted to propose, the festival seemed to offer the perfect opportunity. “It was such a neat thing to be able to help him do it,” said Parade Coordinator Kate Taylor. Jensen was the chaffeur for the parade “float”

with Stapleton and Johnson riding in the back seat. Stapleton and Jensen had joked for ten years about riding in the parade; so Johnson wasn’t suspicious when Stapleton told her they were really doing it this year, and asked if would she like to ride with him. But when the vehicle stopped in front of his house, and Stapleton got down on one knee, she figured out the real reason. “She was shocked into silence,” said Stapleton, “She was very, very surprised.” Johnson did get over the shock and give Stapleton a heartfelt yes. When she accepted the proposal, Jensen pulled out a sign they made that said “She Said Yes” to hang on the side of the vehicle. Parents and friends who had gathered at the house erupted in cheers. And Stapleton knew he would now permanently be with the woman who most understands him. “She’s the one person I can always be myself around,” Stapleton said, “She gets me.”

PHONETON - The Ohio National Road Association unveiled a new interpretive sign in Phoneton on Monday, September 26. The sign is the seventeenth to be installed along the Historic National Road. “It is important to know our history and where it takes us in the future,” said Ohio National Road Association President Dean Ringle. The new sign commemorates the history of “Phonetown,” as Phoneton was once known. The sign was installed next to the old AT&T building that gave the town its name. The building, on the corner of National Rd. and SR 202, was a major center of communications for the region from 1893 until 1936. “There’s a lot of stories we could tell about this old building,” said Bethel Township Trustee, Jerry Hirt. During the Flood of 1913, Dayton was underwater and power lines were out all over the area. District Telephone Chief John Bell climbed to the roof of the Dayton telephone building a managed to make a connection to the Phoneton office. For hours that makeshift connection was Dayton’s only communication to the outside world. The unveiling drew a crowd of current and former Phoneton residents with ties to the phone company and the old building. “We want to thank everybody for coming out. It’s good to see a lot of the old timers and share and reminisce,” said Hirt. The sign not only commemorates Phoneton’s history, but also the Historic National Road. The construction of National Road began in 1811 in Cumberland, MD, and was the nation’s first federally funded interstate highway. National Road played an important role in the development of this part of the state. “The National Road has a lot of connection with the Wright Brothers. The Wright Brothers ancestors are buried right down the road here in the Phoneton cemetery. And they came here because of the National Road,” said Dave Fisher, a member of the Bethel Township Historical Society.

Serving for a cure TIPP CITY - The Tippecanoe High School’s Varsity Volleyball team turned their match against Butler High School into a fundraising event - not for them, but for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The Komen foundation raises money for breast cancer research and supports those battling breast cancer. At Volley for the Cure, Tippecanoe students showed up decked out in pink and black, Broadway Hair Studio added tinsel and pink highlights to hair for donations, and Nevin Coppock Physical Education teacher Brian Shappie sported a pink tutu because the Coppock students raised their goal donation. There was also a “In Memory Of” wall, a giant pink ribbon survivors could sign, and halftime ceremony where breast cancer survivors were escorted by members of the team. More photos of the event can be found on the Weekly Record Herald’s Facebook.

Kids present Drac’s Back TIPP CITY - Mistaken identities, slapstick humor, bloody good puns and more crazy characters than a Looney Tune cartoon all come together to create this hilarious vampire play, Drac’s Back, presented by HAM IT UP! Productions and the Tippecanoe Roller Mill Children’s Theatre. The return trip from the Regional Science Fair doesn’t go exactly as planned for Mary Cole and her students. When the school van runs out of gas in the middle of a rainstorm, the young scientists are forced to take refuge in a spooky old house. Greeted by the very pale but suave Dexter Drackman, Buffy, a student who’s also a descendant of the great vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing, senses trouble. Her instincts are dead on — the castle is now owned by Dracula’s sisters, Bella and Della, but their infamous brother wants the house to call his own. Dracula plots with his seventh wife, Trixie, to snatch the house right

out from under his sisters. How? By having a doctor from a rest sanitarium come to the castle in disguise, observe the sisters, declare them incompetent (because they believe in vampires!) and haul them off to Happy Acres. Unfortunately for Dracula, a pair of policewomen stops by to check on a complaint, and he mistakes them for the doctor and her assistant. Meanwhile, the students, aren’t exactly interested in becoming vampires or zombies, so Buffy leads them in their escape attempt. Great for Halloween or any time of year, audiences of all ages will love the silly antics in Drac’s Back! The performance will be October 7 and 8 at 7 p.m., and October 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for students K-12. Reservations can be made at the Hotel Gallery by calling 667-3696 or purchased at the door. The Roller Mill is located at 225 E. Main in Tipp City. Check out or call 410-0138 for more information.

BY PHILLIP COLLINS TCN NEWS SERVICE PCOLLINS @ TCNEWSNET. COM WEST MILTON - According to conventional wisdom and the parameters of good taste, corpses and comedy are typically mutually exclusive terms. Yet, seldom are conventional wisdom and good taste considered necessary ingredients in comical theatre. Fred Carmichael’s The Best Laid Plans, which is currently under production by the West Milton Players, is one case in point. At the center of this foray into farcical fun is the body of a dead spy that turns up in the home of Ada Westbrook, an elderly Ian Fleming prototype. While the corpse is clearly dead, it tends to be every bit as mobile as the rest of the cast, shifting from one spot to another as characters try to solve a madcap murder mystery. The play is directed by Jeanette McDaniel, a West Milton resident and a veteran of the stage. According to McDaniel, The Best Laid Plans resonated with her because of its kinetic narrative and prolific puns. “It appealed to me as a director just because there’s a lot of action,” McDaniel said. “I look at it from the vantage point of what I personally like to see in a show. I don’t like boring shows where nothing ever happens. I like lots of movement and action and things that are funny. I love things that make people laugh. There’s not enough laughter in the world.”

Cast members Tom Rogers, Dave Pottenger, and the Herald’s own Alisha McDarris in The Best Laid Plans. For McDaniel, The Best Laid Plans is something of a family affair. The show features McDaniel’s daughter, Alisha McDaris. According to McDaris, the show offers audiences a oneway ticket to wackiness. “This is a really funny, bizarre, crazy, comedic show,” McDaris said. “It’s hilarious. We just laugh through every rehearsal. All of the lines are funny. It’s familyfriendly. It will appeal to everybody.” McDaris plays Phoebe Kraxley, a sophisticated and crafty woman who knows how to get what she wants. McDaris is joined by her husband, Josh McDarris, and the talents of Dave Pottenger, Katie

Paeg, Dave Nickel, Brian Wilgus, Jimmy Rogers, Beth Bengough, Tom Rogers, and Kathy Campbell. According to McDaniel, the entire cast has talent to burn. “The cast is great,” McDaniel said. “ There are many doors and many entrances, and many people on stage at the same time. So, it’s been a challenge, but they’ve really tackled it with enthusiasm. They’re all energetic. They listen closely. It’s been a pleasure to work with them.” The show will run on Oct. 6,7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 9 at 3 p.m. at Overlook Park on 444 N. Miami St., West Milton. Admission is $8. Call 3352554 for more details.

BOE - continued from page 1 Feitshans shared that she’s heard more students support the idea than not. Abboud noted that many of the students who have hated the idea are those who would normally be drinking before a dance. The girls were supported in their presentation by Assistant Principal Brian Honeycutt, Superintendent John Kronour, and Assistant Superintendent Gretta Kumpf. The opposition came from the Board of Education themselves. Frank Maus was concerned about false positives. Kate Johnson wondered if students wouldn’t “sneak in a flask in their purse.” She also expressed the need for a set policy concerning how the ‘random’ test is administered. Scott Dixon felt that the test might push students to imbibe substances that weren’t detectible. Several board members expressed concern that the test would seriously reduce the amount of students who would choose to come to the dance. Kronour offered to get information to the board the next day on the reliability of the Breathalizer device. He said he would also soon bring the board a plan to back up the test if the student swears it’s a false positive, and a set plan for how the test would be administered randomly. Kronour did point out, “This doesn’t actually require board action. If you’re adamantly opposed, obviously I work for you so that would be taken into serious consideration. But, we’re hearing from students that it’s a problem. It’s almost condoning that [drinking] behavior if we hear about it and don’t do something.” It was also noted that parents can express their opinion in a survey on the schools’ website. The end decision of the evening was that the phrase “you could be subject to a Breathalizer” will appear on the dance policy form students and parents have to sign before attending the Homecoming dance. That way, in case the decision is finalized to administer Breathalizer tests, students and parents will already be aware of the possibility. Kumpf concluded, “I feel like this is our student leaders and they’re trying to lead.” The board concurred with this statement and thanked the girls for their presentation. Response to Intervention Other presentations in Monday’s meeting included the school principals, who are implementing new programs this year to work on the “RTI factor,” or response to intervention. This is a statemandated concept for improving student’s skills before they need a Title I or IEP (individualized education program). At the elementaries, Broadway and Nevin Coppock have joined forces to offer breakout sessions called Broadway Breakout and Coppock Connection. Students will be divided in groups by like abilities and similar weaknesses as determined by the Ohio Department of Education Report Card and monitoring systems like AIMSweb. All the groups will focus on reading, but with different aspects like vocabulary, comprehension, and phonetics. They will meet for 40 minutes each day, Monday through Thursday. Even the arts, music, and physical education teacher will be getting involved. “We’re stretching our teachers a lot,” said Broadway Principal Galen Gingerich, “But they’re willing to do it.”

The principals hope to bring in community and parent volunteers to work with the students as well. L.T. Ball is also implementing breakout sessions of 40 minutes, four days a week. Principal Sarah Patterson stressed that they want to focus on not only intervention, but enrichment as well. Board members thought the sessions sounded promising, but were concerned about the time taken out of other subjects. “We believe that reading is a foundational skill,” said Patterson in reply. She explained that reading skills will help students better understand and perform in math, science, and other subject areas. Patterson also noted that administration will be having individual goal meetings with each teacher. An important part of those meetings will be going over results from the TerraNova and other standardized tests students have taken by fourth and fifth grade. “With many of our teachers, the question is ‘I have all of this data, now what do I do with it?’” Patterson said. The new program at Tippecanoe Middle this year is S.W.A.T., or Students Working and Achieving Together. It’s similar to a mandatory study hall. Two teachers, Cheryl Peeples and Jennifer Wysocki, have had their start time staggered so they don’t come in to work until after first period. But they stay until 3:15 after school to help students work on social studies, science, math and reading. Students can come voluntarily, or teachers can assign students to attend. “It’s aimed at kids that don’t always get work done,” Principal Greg Southers said, explaining that sometimes students need extra help, and sometimes they just need a quiet place to work. Southers recognized the crucial assistance of Transportation Supervisor Jane Thompson. She has worked with the bus drivers and parents to make it available for SWAT students to catch a ride home on the elementary school bus, if need be. “That’s some good stuff,” said Board member Tom

Merritt of the different programs. A lot of these projects, along with the high school’s current online education offering, Odysseyware, are spurred not only by the mandate. They are also a a result of the ratings on the Ohio Department of Education State Report Card. Tipp City Schools received an “Excellent” rating for the sixth time in a row. Although they scored highly in almost all of the 26 indicators, the schools are still looking for areas to improve. “These test scores are an important piece, but they’re not the only piece,” said Kronour. Design firm hired In other action, the Board approved an interim services agreement with Ruetschle Architects. “I want to make sure people are aware that this is at no cost to the district,” said Johnson. Ruetschle is offering their professional advice and services to help Tipp City develop a five-year Master Facilities Plan in anticipation that Tipp will be selected for the Ohio School Facilities Commission program. The agreement does not commit Tipp to building a building, nor does it say that Ruetschle will receive the bid to build said building. It does give them “first dibs” on such a project though, according to Kronour. The Board also approved a $2,000 stipend for each of the five school kitchen supervisors, Julie Kihm, Margaret Dorn, Tammy Green, Mary Wilson, and Judy Dungan. Both Kronour and Director of Services Gary Pfister suggested this stipend due to the extra work and responsibilities taken on with the retirement of Food Service Supervisor Ginny Watson. The Board had no objection to the salary increase. Rather, several members wondered if it was enough compensation for the extra work. However, since it had already been discussed and agreed upon with the service staff, the original amount of $2,000 stood.

Scary moments you’d soon not endure T

hey were the words that no parent ever wants to hear: “Your daughter and granddaughter were in a head-on collision and your daughter is being care-flighted to the hospital.” I know many have heard worse. But these words turned our world upside down. We both were calmly frantic, high on adrenaline and fear, waiting for the outcome. We weren’t even together, since the baby went to one hospital and our daughter to Times another. Community News We stayed strong — praying Columnist and drinking coffee and texting each other…trying to give each other strength. I have many moments in life that have been frozen in time: Saying “I do” to my soul mate, watching a blue whale dive beneath the Pacific, holding my granddaughters when they were minutes old, watching my son marry his soul mate and seeing a double rainbow in the mountains of New Mexico as Elton John‘s “Funeral for a Friend“ blared on the car stereo. But those were the good moments. I’ve been blessed to not have too many frozen in time bad moments. So this was a true test. The crash was all over the news — television, radio and newspaper. It hit the TV long before I had word from the doctors on the outcome of our daughter. We found out first that our granddaughter was going to be just fine. A true miracle — not to mention the wonderful invention of a safety car seat. After quite a few hours, we finally found out that our daughter was quite banged up and had multiple breaks and injuries — but would be fine eventually. She had God, 25 guardian angels and a seat belt to thank for that…because the car was mince meat. I certainly prefer that the frozen moments and the “take your breath away” moments are because of wonderful events — not tragic ones. Even though I may think I can control life, when something like this shakes me up I realize that the control is an illusion. I can’t control what happens in life anymore than I can control the rising of the sun. What I can control, and have chosen to do, is how I handle the surprises that life sends our way. Stuff is going to happen — it’s called Life. It’s how I handle the stuff that matters. Daughter and granddaughter are going to be just fine. Dad and mom got their heart jumpstarted and their humble prayers answered. Life moves ahead at a speed between extremely slow and lightening fast, and it still includes — and always will — wonderful “frozen in time” moments.

Get your flu shots now! M

y message this week is short and sweet; get your flu shot. There are so called medical experts on the radio, TV and in print, “informed” parents as well as people who oppose just about anything, telling you not to take the shot. They are wrong. I can’t believe any media outlet allows a so-called professional to give ridiculous advice about vaccines. Many of these “pros” tell folks not to get ANY vaccines at all and certainly not to get them for their children. That is pure HOGWASH! When I was a Military Training Instructor in the Air Force in 1972, the physicians at the base had us bring our trainees to a clinic. The trainees, and instructors, could take part (voluntarily) in a test of flu vaccines. They were not yet widely used for the general population. I always caught seasonal flu so I took the shot. That was nearly 40 years ago and I haven’t missed a season yet. And I haven’t had the flu again either. Kathy, my wife of 36 years, can say the same thing about herself as can our own children, now 19 and 14. We wouldn’t miss it. It’s like a family out-

ing for us. The Centers for Disease Control says to get it. Every legitimate physician I know (and I come in contact with a lot) recommends it. And I have not known, or come in contact with, a single person who regretted getting the shot or who had adverse reactions to it. In the interest of full disclosure, one year I had tenderness for a few days at the site of the shot but I think it had more to do with the needle entry than the vaccine. And most years the shot is over before I even know there was a stick! When a “professional” in the field of medicine says not to take any kind of vaccine, antibiotics or most medicines their knowledge and skills come into question immedi-

ately. Can you have adverse reactions to a flu shot? The professionals say you can. They will also tell you it is rare and the potential effects of the flu, if you aren’t immunized, can be much more devastating and are much more of a reality. I am not a doctor (I just pretend to be one at parties) but I can tell you this, if I hear somebody recommend against sound preventative medical measures, I run as fast as I can to a true professional to get those treatments. On the other hand, I suppose every society needs to be amused by modern day witch doctors! Of course there are rare exceptions so if you aren’t sure ask your family doctor but for the vast majority of us; get your flu shot now!

We were here first T hank you, Matt Devlin.

My husband and I have watched thousands of college football, basketball, baseball, cheerleading, volleyball, swim meets, and tennis games. Many times we’ve seen them in person, but usually we watch them on television. These games, matches, meets and tournaments are, most often, Big Ten teams, Sue Curtis, but we also TC N watch other conference Columnist teams since they may play or impact the Big Ten outcomes. MAC teams are frequently watched, too, since I am a graduate with two degrees from a MAC conference school — Miami University. I attended Miami for six years during the 1970s. During that time, we had an undefeated football team which was ranked 10th in the country. I talked with a lot of students, professors, fans, and alumni during those six years, when we were called the “Redskins,” and I heard Miami referred to in a number of ways: MU, Miami, the Redskins were most prevalent. I never heard anyone say they attended or worked at “Miami of Ohio.” Not then, and not since then. However, in the past couple of decades, “Miami of Ohio” has become the media’s favorite moniker for Miami University. This annoys me. It annoys me a lot. Partly I get annoyed because I figure anyone who attended, follows, or works at Miami knows it’s in Ohio. I also get annoyed because Miami University was established in 1923, a full CENTURY prior to the opening of the University of Miami (aka Miami of Florida). The two universities are sized similarly, so

Susie’s Snippets

with more than one hundred years’ head start, Miami has at least twice as many alumni as Miami of Florida. It puzzles me because Miami has plenty of reasons for non-alumni to know what and where it is. It is the Cradle of Coaches for a reason — over 35 notable coaches of football, basketball, hockey, tennis, cross country, baseball have either attended or coached at Miami, or both. These include Paul Brown, Woody Hayes, Weeb Ewbank, Ara Parseghian, Bo Schembechler, Bill Mallory, Jim Tressel, Ron Zook, Randy Walker, Gary Moeller, Thad Matta, and Randy Ayers. One of the U.S. Presidents, Benjamin Harrison, attended Miami University. Miami of Florida boasts many fine alumni, but no American Presidents, as yet. Miami is also famous as the “Mother of Fraternities,” with four fraternities having their charter organizations at MU. Yet sportscasters feel the need to refer to us as “Miami of Ohio.” We’re the same size, well actually a little bit bigger than Miami of Florida. We’re older by 103 years. We have a higher graduation rate. We have more alumni. I have a theory. According to a 2009 UBS study , Miami, Florida was ranked as the richest city in the United States, and the world’s fifth-richest city in terms of purchasing power. Is it possible to purchase the rights to “Miami”? Apparently not. On September 17, Miami U. played Minnesota. Matt Devlin was one of the reporters on BTN covering the game. He referred to MU as “Miami” throughout the game, apparently appreciating the intelligence of the people watching and trusting that we would know just which “Miami” team was playing Minnesota. Thank you, Mr. Devlin. You’ve restored my faith. Do you know where Miami University is? Email me at

Dee is perpetual motion in favor of a better Tipp City, who seems to be everywhere promoting this wonderful town. Dee has been an exemplary council member who resoundingly should be re-elected.

Her love for Tipp is evident and I look forward to seeing her return to city council. Please join me in voting for Dee Gillis for Tipp City council! Gordon Honeyman, Tipp City

Curb dog overpopulation through spaying and neutering To the Editor: Anyone aware that National Dog Week (Sept 22 – Sept 28th.) just passed us by in a very quiet manner? Ohio shelters are full and have been overcrowded for months now with many adoptable family-oriented dogs unclaimed, dumped, and euthanized. Why? For two very sad reasons: 1. Pet owners choose to not spay or neuter 2. Ohio’s poor economy has resulted in family’s giving up their family pet We can help stop the overpop-

ulation and euthanizing of pets coming into Ohio shelters because resources are available. Low cost spay and neuter resources are coming into our counties and will continue to come back — if the public decides to take advantage of this opportunity. A Rascal Unit is coming to Shelby County, Oct. 18. Call the Shelby County Animal shelter are 498-7201 for details. And, there is low cost spay/neuter unit is coming to Miami County on Oct. 22, visit for details. We can help stop the neglect and abuse of pets in Ohio. Some

of our furry friends live chained 24/7, neglected, abused, and unprotected from the weather elements and that is okay? We can provide the necessary change when our choice is to “step up and help.” How? Petitions can be signed to improve the laws and regulations to protect our “best friend.” Important resources available for you to help make changes for our furry friends include (BODA) and (League of Humane Voters in OHIO) Cindy Hartnagel, West Milton

Winco Industries, now at 835 N. Hyatt, is celebrating 50 years of business.

Winco Industries celebrates 50 years of business in Tipp TIPP CITY - In 1961, Carl Winblad began a re-sharpening and re-grinding company in his garage, known as Tipp Cutting Tool Service. Soon after, he moved his business to Fifth Street in Tipp City. This tar paper shack was less than 30 square feet and it had no heating or plumbing and a dirt floor. The business grew in the early 1960’s and relocated to a larger facility with plumbing and heating, and a few part time employees. By 1967, Tipp Cutting Tool Service relocated again, as the company expanded to manufacturing of various types of cutting tools, and incorporating in 1968. In 1974, the corporation was restructured as Winco Industries Inc. and once again, the need for more space caused the company to relocate

adding Precision Drill and Reamer and Advanced Manufacturing. Eventually Advanced Manufacturing was closed, and production of pressure coolant type gun drills and reamers were added. Winco’s research and development in the 1980’s allowed the company to begin developing polycrystalline diamond (PCD) cutting tools for the machining of non ferrous materials. I.E. (aluminum and carbon fiber). Winco Industries still continues to grow and is now a major producer of Carbide, PCD and CBN Cutting Tools serving Industries around the world with manufacturing operations in the United States and Mexico. Winco is proud to be one of the surviving tooling manufacturer’s that are still a part of the Dayton area community after 50 years of business.

Natural Health. While going to school, Tomb continued to work at Cornerstone and a natural health store she opened with her family, Body and Soul (also now closed). When she graduated from Clayton in April 2011, however, Tomb knew it was time to change course. “I knew I wanted to see clients on a one-on-one basis,� she said, “It was time for me to get more serious about my career – step it up a notch.� Hence her work at The Earth’s Center. Tomb had worked with owner Nicole Mikel several years at Body and Soul, and they had developed a solid bond. “From the beginning, it was a great working relationship and friendship,� Tomb said. Mikel felt Tomb’s professional knowledge would work well with The Earth’s Center mission. So last month, Tomb came on board The Earth’s Center’s staff. Tomb notes her services are open to anybody on any stage of their “health journey.� Whether someone just needs ‘fine-tuning’ or is going through a major health crisis, Tomb wants to guide them to healthy choices. “I want to lead people in the right direction,� she said, “If you’re stuck, I can help you. The small things can make a huge difference.� Tomb doesn’t just offer advice; she lives what she says. “This is my life. I don’t know how to live any other way,� she said, “After all these years, I’m still excited about it – what a difference it makes in people’s lives.� Tomb is married to Jeremy, who trains at CrossFit with her. They have a two and a half year old son, Henry, and another baby on the way. The family lives in Elizabeth Township in what used to be Tomb’s grandparents’ home.

boards or committees. Details of the formation and operation of the District will be provided to appointees during an initial informational meeting, although any interested individual may ask for information. Various unincorporated areas in the Township will be eligible for consideration for services if enough interest is shown by residents of those areas. Initially, the District Board will be working with residents of the Country Estates East Subdivision (Curtwood Drive area). An applicant for a position on the new Board must be a resident in an unincorporated area of Monroe Township (not limited to the above named subdivision). Applicants for the District Board should send letters to: Monroe Township Board of Trustees, 4 E. Main Street, Tipp City, OH 45371, postmarked by October 12, or hand delivered by October 14 prior to 5 p.m. The Township office may be reached at 6673136.

Water and sewer district formed MONROE TOWNSHIP - The Monroe Township Trustees recently completed the legal steps required to form the Monroe Township Water & Sewer District. The purpose of the District is to provide public water and/or sanitary sewer services to residents of the unincorporated areas of Monroe Township who want and need those services. The District will be allowed by Ohio law to contract for engineering, construction, purchase of water and for central sewer treatment, maintenance of the systems, and arrange financing of any projects. The District is an independent political subdivision of the State of Ohio, governed by laws found in the Ohio Revised Code. The next step is for the Monroe Township Trustees to appoint a District Board of Directors. The Board will consist of five (5) residents of unincorporated Monroe Township who will serve staggered terms and will initially meet once or twice per month as the Board determines is necessary to conduct the business of the District. Individuals interested in applying for a position on the District Board should submit a letter of interest including name, address, phone number(s), length of residency in Monroe Township, and any background that may be helpful to the District, including a history of previous service on other

TIPP CITY – The Earth’s Center has a new staff member and health option. Sabra Tomb doesn’t focus on just the body, or just the face. She offers Holistic Wellness Sessions, which include discussing herbs and supplements, fitness, nutrition, and diet with the client. They can include personal training with free weights as well. “It’s putting all those pieces together in one session. We look at the whole picture,� she said. Tomb knows personally about the body issues many people, especially women, face. When she was in high school, she was unhappy with the way her body looked and wanted to change that. “I was looking for a healthy way of feeling good about myself and controlling it before it controlled me,� she said, “I wanted to make a life long commitment.� That was at 17 years old. Over 10 years later, she has kept that commitment. Tomb started working out at the Tecumseh YMCA, and then Total Fitness, where she became certified as a personal trainer. Right now she works out at CrossFit. “I saw major transformations in a matter of months,� she said about her introduction to fitness, “I loved the empowerment – the way that [fitness] made me feel.� At 19, she decided to try a fitness show. These competitions included a fitness obstacle course and a ‘physical round’, with the contestant in a bikini. The shows are similar to bodybuilding contests, but instead of bulking up, the goal is to be lean and toned. So Tomb started paying attention to her diet. She ate almost all ‘whole foods’ – protein, lots of veg-

etables, lots of grains, and no refined foods like sugar. After 12 weeks, Tomb knew there was something to this way of eating. “Once I saw the results, I was like ‘oh my word, diet is such an important part of this whole health piece’,� she recalled. Not only was her body staying lean, Tomb noticed she had more energy and her skin looked better, too. “It took me to a whole other element,� she Sabra Tomb said. The third step on Tomb’s health knowledge ladder was when she started working at Cornerstone Natural Foods, a health food store that used to be in Troy. There she learned about herbs and supplements, and how they can complement and assist the body. “That just changed my life,� Tomb recalled, “It was one of the best times in my life.� At that point, Tomb knew her passion about health was more than just taking care of her own body. She wanted to share her knowledge and zeal with others. “When you find something that you are so caught up in, so passionate about – I knew this was my calling,� Tomb explained, “First it was about me, then it became ‘this is what I want to do’.� Almost nine years later, Tomb received her doctorate in Natural Health at the Clayton College of

Mud stymies Bethel harriers at Versailles VERSAILLES — The muddy conditions seemed to bother the entire field at the Tour De Sewer meet Saturday. But Cameron Keough was Bethel’s secondbest finisher at 104th in a time of 22:05. Freshman Morgan Weinert placed 81st place in a time of 25:18. She was followed by Sydney Compton in 127th place in a time of 28:59. The Bees placed 11th as a team (324 points). Versailles was team champion with a score of 34 points. Botkins placed second (79 points) and Xenia Christian was third (100).

Bethel plundered by Vikings, 41-10 BY JOSH BROWN OCM NEWS SERVICE JBROWN @ TDNPUBLISHING . COM After a lackluster first half, the Miami East Vikings simply did what they’d been trained to do. They kept on believing. After being held to only 83 yards of offense and trailing the Bees 10-6 after the first half, the Vikings (4-1, 4-0 Cross County Conference) executed their gameplan to perfection, scoring on their first five possessions of the second half and pulling away late for a 41-10 victory at Bethel. And Kevin McMaken, Michael Fellers and Josh Snyder were the primary executioners. Fellers had the Vikings’ only score in the first half on a 36-yard touchdown run, as well as their final one on a 20-yard run, Snyder had the first two scores of the second half — a 35-yard run and a 3yard pass from Colton Bowling — and McMaken was the workhorse, carrying the ball 21 times for 87 yards and touchdown runs of 24 and 2 yards. The Bees (2-3, 1-3) simply didn’t have the horses to keep up. “Injuries and a lack of depth really hurt us tonight,” Bethel coach Brad Clendening said. “We had 13 kids out on Monday that weren’t eligible to play, so we were really depleted. I thought we outplayed them in the first half, but it was a different ballgame in the second half.” Bethel captured the

momentum early in the first half. James Pelphrey picked off a Bowling pass, giving the Bees a short field to work with at the Viking 28. On third-and-13, Jon Ellerbrock escaped the Miami East pass rush and found Reed Pelphrey for a first down, then Ellerbrock hit Austin Staggs on a 10-yard slant over the middle to put the Bees on top 7-0. Miami East answered on its first drive of the second quarter. Michael Fellers took a pitch around the left side and cut through a gaping hole in the line, winning a foot race to the end zone and going 36 yards untouched — but a blocked extra point kept Bethel ahead, 7-6. After a punt by Garlough died at the 2-yard line, the Bethel defense held and gave the Bees the ball at the Miami East 47. Ellerbrock his escapability showed again, scrambling to his right and eluding a pair of sacks then cutting all the way back to the opposite side of the field for what appeared to be a 53-yard touchdown — but a chop block penalty wiped those points off the board, forcing Bethel to settle for a 29-yard Garlough field goal with 16 seconds left, giving the Bees a 10-6 lead at the break. Bethel finished the game with 11 penalties for 85 yards, and even though they got points after it, the wiped-out touchdown really hurt the Bees. “We had a lot of penalties tonight that we hadn’t had all year,” Clendening said. “They were aggressive penal-

ties, but we can’t fight back from 70-80 penalty yards — especially when they’re taking touchdowns away.” Snyder kicked off the second half with a bang, taking the same kind of pitch that Fellers had scored on 35 yards for a touchdown to make it 12-10, then after a Bethel three-and-out, Snyder capped off a nine-play, 60yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown reception and a two-point run to make it 2010. Miami East led 27-10 at the end of the third after McMaken’s 24-yard burst through the middle, and after a bad snap on a punt gave the Vikings the ball on Bethel’s 2yard line, he took it in on the Vikings’ first play after. Fellers made it 35 unanswered points after the Vikings recovered a Bethel fumble, scoring on a 20-yard pitch. Bethel had four three-andouts and a lost fumble on its first five possessions of the second half — and the Vikings cashed in.

The Tippecanoe golf team, from left to right, Lindsay Murray, Erika Brownlee, Coach Scott Murray, Kristy Kagy, Brianna Eichbaum, Kayla Vath and Jessica Williams.

They’re CBC champions! Last week, the Tippecanoe girls’ golf team won the regular season and tournament Central Buckeye Conference championship shooting a 349 under rainy conditions with a dominating victory at Reid South Golf Course in Springfield. Sophomore Lindsey Murray was the medalist with a score of 75. She was named player of the

year for the second consecutive year. Juniors Kristy Kagy and Kayla Vath shot 83 and 92 respectively and were named first team all-league. Freshman Erika Brownlee shot a 100 and was also named first team all-league while sophomore Brianna Eichbaum shot 99 and made honorable mention in her first year of golf.

Tippecanoe gave Ben Logan a healthy dose of its three-headed monster in the backfield Friday, as Jacob Hall, Nick Fischer and Cameron Johnson — who provided the Red Devils with big-yardage gains on multiple occasions — all scored touchdowns in a 21-15 win. Hall’s touchdown run from eight yards out in the first quarter and gave Tipp an early lead before Fischer added another score from one yard away to give the Devils a 14-0 lead. Cameron Johnson scored Tipp’s last touchdown in the fourth on a 7yard pass from Ben Hughes. Ben Logan scored all 15 points in the fourth quarter, scoring on a blocked punt, safety and a 40-yard run by its quarterback — but it was too little, too late. “Any win is a big win,” Tippecanoe coach Charlie Burgbacher said. “This puts us at 5-0, so we will keep working and get ready for next week.”

Milton-Union whips Madison to go to 4-1 BY BRETT BARNES SPORTS CORRESPONDENT The Milton-Union football team traveled to Madison on Friday night for a contest that not only would establish a pecking order in the SWBL Buckeye Division, but also would amount to huge computer points as both teams entered play with identical 3-1 records. When the scoreboard finally rested, the road team had emerged victorious 35-19 in a hard hitting, exciting contest from start to finish. Just two plays in, lightning struck. The Mohawks fumbled a pitchout, and Josh Booher recovered for the Bulldogs giving them first and ten at the Madison 18-yard line. Jake Finfrock took the first handoff and scampered virtually untouched for a quick strike 6-0 lead. Nick Fields added the extra point, and the Bulldogs led 7-0 on a five second scoring drive. When lightning strikes, thunder soon follows, and that thunder was the Madison offense that put 19 unanswered points on the board. Head Coach Brett Pearce had warned his club about the Mohawks offense throughout the week. “They have had some long TD’s on offense,” he said. “We needed to make them work for any points they score and not let them get easy ones.” With 9:09 remaining in the second quarter, no one could have predicted that the Mohawks would not score again. The Bulldog offense had to get something going, and they turned to Senior running back Jake Finfrock to light a spark. It took the Bulldogs just three plays to get into the end zone. Finfrock scored on a beautifully blocked 54-yard scamper, and with the Fields PAT, it was 19-14. Again, the Mohawks began to drive, but on fourth and six from the Bulldog 41-yard line, a completed pass came about a foot short, and after the measurement, the Bulldog sideline exploded. Great field position turned into a six play drive helped by a Mohawk roughing the passer penalty. The final play of the drive, Finfrock willed himself into the end zone from 26yards out, and Fields ended the first half scoring with the extra point. Madison had held the ball for 17:18 seconds in the first half and had 235 yards total offense, but trailed the football game. The third quarter was a battle of field position with the only opportunity to score coming from the Bulldogs after an eight play drive to start the half. However, a Field’s thirty-five yard field goal attempt sailed wide right. The Bulldogs’ misfortune in the third turned to gold in the fourth. The steady diet of running plays to Finfrock ceased with Clay Minton and Tyler Brown joining the party. The drive came down to a fourth and goal from the 15-yard line. Quarterback Cody Hollon dropped back to pass and found Minton on a wellconceived screen for the first Bulldog touchdown pass of the year. Fields again was true, and the score stood 28-19 with just 7:02 remaining. Madison fumbled on its next possession, and the Bulldogs sealed it with Tyler Brown, who accounted for 49 yards including an 11-yard power run for M-U’s fifth touchdown of the evening (Fields PAT), and a final score of 35-19.

Why Do Leaves Change Color? While you were playing in the hot sun during summer vacation the trees on the streets, in the parks, and in the forests were working hard to keep you cool. To feed the shiny green leaves that make shade, trees use sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugar. This is called photosynthesis. Now it's autumn, and you're back in school. Those hardworking trees, on the other hand, need to take a break from all that photosynthesizing. When leaves change color from green to yellow, bright orange, or red, you'll know that trees are beginning their long winter's rest. Where do leaf colors come from? Leaf color comes from pigments. Pigments are natural substances produced by leaf cells. The three pigments that color leaves are: • chlorophyll (green) • carotenoid (yellow, orange, and brown) • anthocyanin (red) Chlorophyll is the most important of the three. Without the chlorophyll in leaves, trees wouldn't be able to use sunlight to produce food. Carotenoids create bright yellows and oranges in familiar fruits and vegetables. Corn, carrots, and bananas are just a few of the many plants colored by carotenoid. Anthocyanins add the color red to plants, including cranberries, red apples, cherries, strawberries and others. Chlorophyll and carotenoid are in leaf cells all the time during the

growing season. But the chlorophyll covers the carotenoid — that's why summer leaves are green, not yellow or orange. Most anthocyanins are produced only in autumn, and only under certain conditions. Not all trees can make anthocyanin. How do leaves change color? As the Earth makes its 365-day journey around the sun, some parts of the planet will get fewer hours of sunlight at certain times of the year. In those regions, the days become shorter and the nights get longer. The temperature slowly drops. Autumn comes, and then winter. Trees respond to the decreasing amount of sunlight by producing less and less chlorophyll. Eventually, a tree stops producing chlorophyll. When that happens, the carotenoid already in the leaves can finally show through. The leaves become a bright rainbow of glowing yellows, sparkling oranges and warm browns. What about red leaves? Read on. Do leaves change because of weather? Perhaps you've noticed that in some years, the red fall colors seem brighter and more spectacular than in other years. The temperature and cloud cover can make a big difference in a tree's red colors from year to year. When a number of warm, sunny autumn days and cool but not freezing nights come one after the other, it's going to be a good year for reds. In the daytime, the leaves can produce lots of sugar, but the cool night temperatures prevent the sugar sap from flowing through the leaf veins and down

TANUUM Sun Prints & Leaf Mobiles SUN PRINTS with paper taped to window... MAKE LEAF PRINT ART... Materials: Colored construction paper (make sure you use paper that will fade), leaves gathered from yard, glue stick, masking tape Optional: picture frames 1. Dab a bit of glue onto the back of a leaf, and attach to a piece of construction paper (If you are going to frame--you can pre-trim the paper to fit a 5"x7" frame--frames can be made from foam, cardboard or card-stock). 2. Tape the paper to a sunny window, with the leaf facing out. Leave up for THREE TO FOUR days, or UNTIL YOU NOTICE that the paper's color has faded. (Some directions say a week or longer. This time estimate would be more accurate. You'll know by the fading.) 3. Remove from the window and gently peel the leaf off to reveal the print. Frame and hang.

into the branches and trunk. Anthocyanins to the rescue! Researchers have found out that anthocyanins are produced as a form of protection. They allow the plant to recover nutrients in the leaves before they fall off. This helps make sure that the tree will be ready for the next growing season. Anthocyanins give leaves their bright, brilliant shades of red, purple and crimson. The yellow, gold and orange colors created by carotenoid remain fairly constant from year to year. That's because carotenoids are always present in leaves and the amount does not change in response to weather. The amount of rain in a year also affects autumn leaf color. A severe drought can delay the arrival of fall colors by a few weeks. A warm, wet period during fall will lower the intensity, or brightness, of autumn colors. A severe frost will kill the leaves, turning them brown and causing them to drop early. The best autumn colors come when there's been: • a warm, wet spring • a summer that's not too hot or dry, and • a fall with plenty of warm sunny days and cool nights.

Did You Know?

You can use fall leaf color to help identify different tree species. Look for these leaf colors on the trees in your neighborhood. • Oaks: red, brown or russet • Hickories: golden bronze • Dogwood: purple-red • Birch: bright yellow • paper birch • yellow birch • Poplar: golden yellow • Maple trees show a whole range of colors: • Sugar Maple: orange-red • Black Maple: glowing yellow • Red Maple: bright scarlet Why do leaves fall? A tree's roots, branches and twigs can endure freezing temperatures, but most leaves are not so tough. On a broadleaf tree — say a maple or a birch — the tender thin leaves, made up of cells filled with water sap, will freeze in winter. Any plant tissue unable to live through the winter must be sealed off and shed to ensure the tree's survival. As sunlight decreases in autumn, the veins that carry sap into and out of a leaf gradually close. A layer of cells, called the separation layer, forms at the base of the leaf stem. When this layer is complete, the leaf is separated from the tissue that connected it to the branch, and it falls. Oak leaves are the exception. The separation layer never fully detaches the dead oak leaves, and they remain on the tree through winter. Evergreen trees — pines, spruces, cedars and firs — don't lose their leaves, or needles, in winter. The needles are covered with a heavy wax coating and the fluids inside the cells contain substances that resist freezing. Evergreen leaves can live for several years before they fall and are replaced by new growth. On the ground, fallen leaves are broken down by bacteria, fungi, earthworms and other organisms. The decomposed leaves restock the soil with nutrients, and become part of the spongy humus layer on the forest floor that absorbs and holds rainfall. In nature, nothing goes to waste.

Go fish BY ALISHA MCDARRIS RECORD HERALD WRITER ALISHA.MCDARRIS@GMAIL.COM BETHEL TOWNSHIP - In one of Bethel Junior High’s science classrooms, students and teacher alike were delighted to find that they had recently been selected by the Western Ohio Reef Club to receive a 50gallon saltwater aquarium. The donated aquarium is part of a new program to get kids excited about learning and introduce them to a whole new world of ocean life, reef keeping, and education. The Reef Club was founded by a group of saltwater aquarium enthusiasts in Western Ohio to share ideas, information, and expertise on the marine aquarium hobby. They love sharing their enthusiasm with others. Todd Wright, the father of a Bethel middle school student, proposed an idea to really immerse kids in the science of ocean life. The club members approved and decided that Bethel would test out a brand new approach to reef education: a complete setup for the appreciation and study of ocean life. Science teacher Leslie Mosley was thrilled to accept the donated aquarium for her classroom, complete with coral, fish, invertabrates and more. She knows Bethel is deserving of the contribution. “I’m excited about it as a teacher,” Mosley

WEST MILTON - Alyssa Smith from Mrs. Kramer’s Kindergarten Class was a student participants in the “Magic of Recyling” show at Milton-Union Elementary, sponsored by the Miami County Solid Waste District. In the show, the “Smith” family sent all their trash to curb. The garbage man picked it up and took it to the landfill. The landfill became so big that there was no more room. They learned to reuse and recycle and reduced the amount of trash considerably that went to the landfill.

They will soon understand the effects of climate change, ocean acidification, and other external factors on reefs along ocean floors, which Mosley thinks is important. “These guys are the ones who will be taking care of our oceans in the future,” Mosley pointed out.

Heartland of Piqua Gives Back September 8, 2011 might have been a rainy day, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of our local fire and police departments. Heartland of Piqua hosted their annual 9-11 Cookout on that day for our first responders. ‘The usual festivities of the cookout continued’ states Molly Grise, Admissions Director, ‘but the high point of the event was when one of our residents presented the Piqua Fire Department with an American Flag afghan she made’. Lorena Arnett approached the fire engine with a big smile on her face, so eager to give back what had taken her months to prepare specifically for this event. Arnett set the theme for the rest of the cookout, which included a grill giveaway to a worthy department, sponsored by the Home Depot. Miami Valley Hospitals Care Flight was also in attendance. The residents of Heartland joined our heroes in taking tours of their Mobile Intensive Care Unit. Heartland of Piqua specializes in post-hospital rehabilitation stays. Our caring team is dedicated to getting you back on your feet and back to your life! To set up a tour of our state-of-the-art therapy gymnasium, call Molly at 773-9346.
