Marine biology students head
to the Bahamas
DHI Media Editor
west Ohio sat under dark
clouds and threatening skies,
23 students and adults made
their way to the sunny Baha-
mas Friday for eight days of
The trip is nothing new
for teachers Jeff Rex of Jef-
ferson High School and Jeff
Jostpille of Fort Jennings,
who have taken dozens of stu-
dents to Andros Island for a
week of snorkeling, geology,
marine biology, geography
and historical and cultural im-
mersion. Andros Island is ap-
proximately the size of Dela-
ware at 104 miles long and 40
miles wide and is home to the
worlds largest collection of
blue holes.
While Andros Island is
the biggest in the Bahamas,
its also the most remote and
rustic, Josptille explained.
The kids will experience a
change in lifestyle. The things
we take for granted and see
as necessity are not where we
will be. One thing they will
notice right away is there is no
ice. All drinks are warm. The
power is also iffy.
Students have already com-
pleted classroom work for the
trip, meeting for an hour or
two per week.
We do our homework
before we go on these trips.
The kids have been learning
identication keys for plants,
animals and marine life, Rex
said. The class work and the
trip count as a half-credit in
Marine Biology for the stu-
dents but theyll learn so much
Jostpille agreed.
As much as this trip is
about marine biology, its a
cultural experience, he said.
The people they meet are
poor by our standards.
he Cardinal Chorale,
a select ensemble of
youth from all over
the state of Ohio, will perform
at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Im-
maculate Conception Catholic
Church in Ottoville.
The chorale was organized
by Charles Snyder in 1995 to
provide more challenging mu-
sical opportunities for return-
ing members of the All-Ohio
Youth Choir and to serve as a
demonstration group during
the pre-Fair rehearsal week.
Members are selected by au-
dition from approximately 80

Unemployment rate falls, but work force doesnt gain much ground
COLUMBUS The jobless
rate looks good, but the numbers
behind the rate are not all that
strong. The state unemployment
rate fell from 5.7 percent in April
to 3.3 percent in May, accord-
ing to a report issued Friday by
the Ohio Department of Job and
Family Services. The rate may be
down, but the number of new jobs
was only 2,900 bringing the num-
ber of employed workers in Ohio
to 5,298,300, while the number of
unemployed was reduced by only
11,000. Since a person is only
counted as unemployed if he is
jobless and looking for work, many
are concluding that more people
are giving up on looking for a job.
Usually the same pattern for the
state report will carry over to the
county-by-county reports which
will be released on Tuesday. So
at this point, lower rates are ex-
pected in that report with a rela-
tively small number of new jobs. In
April, Van Wert County had a 4.6
percent jobless rate with 12,900 on
the job and just 600 unemployed
workers. Allen Countys rate was
5.4 percent with 45,3000 working
and 2,600 unemployed, In Putnam
County, the rate fell to 4.4 percent
with 16,600 unemployed and 800
Across Ohio, the increase in
service-providing jobs of 3,600 was
led by an additional 6,900 in pro-
fessional and business services, but
the number of leisure and hospital-
ity jobs bell by 4,300. Manufactur-
ing and mining jobs increased by
2,900 jobs, but construction work
was down by 3,600 jobs.
Over the past 12 months, con-
struction jobs were up 2,800 jobs
and manufacturing positions in-
creased by 11,700. Jobs in profes-
sional and business services in-
creased by just over 20,000 jobs,
while government workers de-
creased by 3,400. Job growth was
also seen in trade, transportation
and utilities (6,900), education and
health services (5,300), and other
services (5,100).
Since December 2007, the size
of Ohios labor force number of
employed workers plus the number
of those unemployed and look-
ing for work has fallen from
5,950,000 to 5,730,000.
Mercer Co. inmate strikes guard
CELINA An inmate in the Mercer
County Jail attacked a corrections ofcer
Thursday night in an altercation at the facility.
James Russell Bricker, 36, who is already fac-
ing a fth-degree felony count of drug abuse,
and two misdemeanor counts of assault and
obstructing ofcial business, became unruly
late Thursday afternoon, just hours after he
had been in an altercation with another inmate.
Bricker was placed in lockdown at that time.
Bricker was allowed out of his cell for a
brief period in order to eat a meal and to re-
trieve some items. He then refused to return to
lockdown. After explaining the consequences
of refusing to obey, deputies and corrections
ofcers attempted to escort Bricker back to his
cell. Again, Bricker resisted, this time striking
Corrections Sgt. Jon Wolfe in the face with his
open hand.
Bricker was then tased to bring him under
control. Once he was under control, Bricker
was placed in lockdown. At that point, Bricker
continued to kick the door to the cell and yell
for several minutes.
A copy of the report is being forwarded to
the Prosecuting Attorney with a request for fel-
ony assault on a police ofcer charges, stated
Sheriff Grey, This type of behavior will not
be tolerated in the facility.
There was no report of injuries to Wolfe.

DELPHOS In the past 13
years, Dave and Carol Higbea
have both been diagnosed with
cancer and learned a great deal
about cancer prevention. Wheth-
er its being diligent with annual
prostate specic antigen (PSA)
screenings or slathering on the
70 SPF sunscreen, this couple
knows the ropes.
In November 2003, Carol had
seen a dermatologist to check
out an area on her forehead
she previously had a few spots
burned off she soon found
out, this one was different. Af-
ter the biopsy they found I had
Basal Cell Carcinoma, she said.
The dermatologist recom-
mended a plastic surgeon do the
surgery because of the scarring
Carol said the surgeon
thought the incision would be a
little z shape, but to remove
the whole tumor, which was em-
bedded very deep, the incision
was a much larger z.
The surgeon told me that I
was more susceptible because
of my fair skin complexion, told
me to wear a wide brimmed hat
and kept repeating sunscreen,
sunscreen, sunscreen, she said
After the surgery, Carol went
back to the dermatologist for a
three-month check up and then
another six months later. Each
year, she goes to the dermatolo-
gist for a thorough checkup.
I laid out at the Delphos
Swimming Pool when I was
younger, now I try to stay out of
the sun, she explained. People
should stay out of the tanning
booths, also.
Three years ago, Carol had
two tumors removed from her
left leg, one on her thigh and an-
other on her lower leg.
Dave said he had a prostate
cancer screening every year
through the Delphos Rotary/
Kiwanis Health Screening Pro-
gram held each October.
I skipped a year and then
had the diagnostic test done the
next year in 2000, he explained.
The doctor called me in for a
consultation and said my num-
bers changed signicantly.
Delphos couple strive to instill cancer prevention

Although the term retire-
ment income replacement ratio
sounds formidable, its actually
a simple, understandable con-
cept that doesnt require any
fancy math. The ratio helps you
zero in on your retirement sav-
ings goal and periodically mea-
sure your progress as you move
toward your target.
Will you need 60 percent,
75 percent, 90 percent or even
100 percent of the income you
have in your last year of work
to maintain a desirable standard
of living after you retire? The
answer to this question is your
income replacement ratio the
percentage of your pre-retire-
ment earnings that will provide
you with the same standard of
living in retirement.
For example, if your pre-
retirement income is $50,000
but your income after retire-
ment is $35,000, you have a
replacement ratio of 70 percent
($35,000 divided by $50,000).
Setting the Foundation of Your
Plan Widely used by nancial
planners, replacement ratios
are common elements of work-
sheets, online calculators and
computer software programs
created to help individuals plan
how they will nance their re-
tirement years.
With the ratio, you can es-
timate how much income you
may need for a comfortable re-
tirement and how much money
you need to save to supplement
your expected sources of in-
comewhich may be some
combination of Social Security,
pension benets, personal in-
vestments and postretirement
If these income sources fall
short of your goal, you can in-
crease your rate of saving or
take other actions to close the
projected decit, such as plan-
ning to reduce living expenses
or moving to a lower-cost locale
in retirement. What Research
Tells Us Opinions vary on the
question of how much replace-
ment income retirees need.
However, one recent study from
the Employee Benet Research
Institute (EBRI) found that if
current Social Security ben-
ets are not reduced, between
83 percent and 86 percent of
workers with at least 30 years of
eligibility in a 401(k) retirement
plan could have enough funds
to replace at least 60 percent of
their age-64 wages on an ina-
tion-adjusted basis.
When the ante is upped to 70
percent of age-64 pay, the EBRI
study found that three-quarters
of workers would still have ade-
quate income, relying solely on
401(k) savings and Social Secu-
rity benets. At an 80 percent
replacement rate, 67 percent of
the lowest income group stud-
ied would still meet the thresh-
old if they had 30 years of eligi-
bility in a 401(k) plan.

The bottom line: Many
people may need between 60
percent and 80 percent of their
nal working years income
to maintain their lifestyle after
retiring and long-term com-
mitment to an employer-spon-
sored retirement plan is key to
meeting that goal. Why dont
retirees need 100 percent of
their working income? Lower
taxes may be one reason. When
a person is no longer employed,
there are no Social Security
payroll taxes to pay. Federal
income taxes are usually lower
because Social Security ben-
ets are either partially or fully
tax free for many retirees, and
extra deductions are available
for people over age 65.
In addition, many people
no longer need to save for re-
tirement, and those who have
paid off debts before retiring
or eliminated work-related ex-
penses, such as commuting
costs, also have a greater share
of their income available for
However, one increasingly
important unknown is the
rising cost of medical care. Al-
ready, medical care has been
taking a bigger bite out of retiree
budgets as health care expenses
have risen; some employers
have reduced or eliminated
medical coverage for retired
employees; and life expectancy
has lengthened. In addition,
retirees have faced higher con-
tributions for Medicare benets
and increased premiums for
Medicare supplemental insur-
ance policies.
The Outlook for Future Re-
tirees While recent retirees and
those nearing retirement may
have adequate replacement in-
come, the situation may not be
so favorable in the future. For
instance, the increasing nan-
cial strains on Social Security
caused by the nations aging
population may lead Congress
to alter the system at some point
in the future, perhaps reduc-
ing Social Security benets or
increasing the age of eligibil-
ity. As a result of these trends,
future retirees may have to rely
more on income from personal
savings and investments than
todays retirees.
What You Can Do
Putting yourself on track to
a secure retirement requires a
few calculations, which can be
accomplished relatively easily
by using a retirement planning
worksheet or calculator avail-
able on the Internet, or from -
nancial advisors and retirement
plan providers. Calculators and
worksheets typically factor in
a replacement income ratio,
along with assumptions about
future ination rates, longevity
and the growth rate of retire-
ment savings. (As you complete
these calculations, bear in mind
that such assumptions cant be
guaranteed.) Calculators and
worksheets also usually take
into account information about
your current retirement account
balances, rate of savings and
anticipated benets from out-
side sources, including Social
Security and pensions.
While ballpark estimates
may be adequate when retire-
ment is a long way off, more
accurate planning is advisable
as your actual retirement date
approaches. If you dont feel up
to the task of rening the num-
bers, consult a nancial advisor.
He or she can help you develop
detailed income and expense
projections, review your as-
sumptions about ination and
future returns from savings and
investments and determine a
prudent level of withdrawals
from your assets.

side of the road, down an embankment
and came to rest in a creek.
The driver did not report any injuries
from this crash.
In the second crash at 7:20 a.m.,
Daines was driving an eastbound 1993
Nissan 180SX on U.S. Route 33 near
Township Road 239 when he went left
of center and struck the trailer of a west-
bound semi, according to the Logan
County Sheriffs Ofce report.

the semis driver, Anthony J. Johnson, 36, of
Fredericktown. He was wearing a seat belt.
Deputies were unable to determine if
Daines was wearing a seat belt.
Also assisting at the U.S. 33 crash
were the Marysville Post of the Ohio
State Highway Patrol, Indian Joint Fire
District and Indian Lake EMS.
The car and the trailer were towed

to control relating to the rst crash. The
second crash remains under investigation.

Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the

Leader, You Can Fly, The Second
Star to the Right and Yo Ho, A Pirates
Life for Me.
son of Rebecca (Smitley) Mum-
ma, the late Ned Agler and step-
son of James Mumma, was born
Feb. 20, 1965.
Agler grew up in Van Wert.
Growing up he could always be
found with the neighborhood
kids playing a game of football
or whatever sport was in season.
In high school, Agler played
tackle for the Van Wert Cougars
football team. He attended col-
lege one year at Bluffton Col-
lege with the goal of becoming
a physical education teacher/
He has always been a sports
enthusiast. Whether cheering
at a live game, watching a tele-
vised game or participating in
the game himself, sports have
always been his passion.
Fast forward a few years to
1993 when Agler married a lo-
cal hometown girl, Monica (Sill)
Agler, daughter of Jerry and
Marjorie Sill. Pat became step-
dad to Jennifer (Moody) Burker
and Spencer Moody. Later Agler
and Monica welcomed their
daughter Amy Jo into the world.
When Agler became dis-
abled in 2001, he was devas-
tated. He had always enjoyed a
very active lifestyle. He enjoyed
participating in bowling, softball
leagues and taking family walks
or bike rides.
During this transition phase,
they decided to downsize and
made their home in Rockford.
As God worked it out, they pur-
chased a home near Shanes Park
in 2004. Pat wanted to become
involved in the community.
He took on the role of grounds
keeper of the ball diamonds at
Shanes Park for three years.
During his time at the park,
Agler developed a shadow in
Cody Depweg. Depweg enjoyed
tagging along with Agler help-
ing him with the bases and lin-
ing the elds.
Agler took great pride in his
work and keeping the elds in
tip top shape. While his pace
was slow, his technique was
awless. Rockford was able to
host games when other locations
cancelled due to ooded elds.
Agler also designed the
Shanes Park Softball/Baseball
logo which hangs on the con-
cession stand at Shanes Park.
After a time it became too much
for him to manage but he had
acquired a new hobby: pho-
tography. He found great joy in
getting the action shots at base-
ball games. Being such an avid
sports fan he soon found the
rhythm of the game and could
predict the plays. That, he says is
what helps him get some of the
awesome shots.
You have to anticipate
where the ball is going and be in
position for the shot.
He made fast friends with
Athletic Director Doug Hughes
and was thrilled when he was al-
lowed to snap pictures at the lo-
cal high school sporting events.
Hands down, football is his
favorite because he played the
game himself.
Nothing like being under
the lights on Friday night with
the adrenaline pumping and the
fans cheering.
Pat launched his website: in 2007.
There he would post pictures of
Parkway High School sports.
He also includes statistics of the
games and a brief story line. The
site changes with the Fall, Spring
and Winter sports seasons. This
website is very time consuming
and challenging, yet rewarding.
The pantherzden website
is a great resource for parents,
grandparents, etc. to view their
student in action. Agler has
received so many kind words
from folks saying how much
they appreciate the website. It
is a wonderful opportunity to
put a spotlight on the school,
community and students. Many
Parkway alum check in to see
how panther sports are going.
Family members far and near
can see pictures of their clan and
feel like they were at the game.
His website is not sponsored by
the school or community. All of
his pictures posted on the site
are free for the taking. He is very
clear about his calling.
He will tell you quite sim-
ply, God put this camera in my
hand. Photography is my gift,
my way to give back.
Aglers website gives back to
the community that so gracious-
ly accepted him in. He counts it
a privilege to attend the school
sporting events and cheer on
the Panthers. He may have been
born a Cougar but he is a proud
transplant and loves his Parkway
In addition, Aglers action
shots have caught the attention
of local paper, The Times Bul-
letin. He shares his photos with
them and in turn, Parkway gets
some great press in the local pa-
per. Agler has traveled to support
our Parkway alumni as they play
college sports as well. He has
had the joy of watching: Jordan
Thompson, Kelsey Bates, Dillon
Long and Josh Fisher to name a
Agler can also be found
at community events such as
Rockford Days, Sock Hop at The
Belle, Business Expo and the
Memorial Day Parade snapping
pictures. He has taken photos for
Youth for Christ, the recent At-
taboy concert held at Parkway
and other school events as well.
In addition, he has shared his tal-
ent by assisting with images for
Chamber events and the Rock-
ford Alive website.
As former president of the
Grand Lake Photo Club, he
brought awareness to the area
Agler is most deserving of
this honor. He is a person with a
big heart always willing to lend
a hand.
He continues to give back to
the community through his pic-

All about peonies
VAN WERT The Evergreen Garden Club opened its
June meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the
United States of America.
Due to the inclement weather John Freund presented his
program All About Peonies in the Administration Building
at the Van Wert Fairgrounds instead of the Peony Garden at
Smiley Park. He explained how the beautiful peony garden was
established by the Adams family, who donated $2,500 for the
project. The wet soil at Smiley Park was enhanced with 30 tons
of top soil and compost. The 280 peonies planted at Smiley
Park are all labeled as to the variety.
The guidelines for planting peonies are easy and caring
for peonies can be also. Plant 1-2 inches below the soil in the
fall; make sure the three to ve eyes are facing up. Space the
plants 3-4 feet apart that will receive a half-day of sunlight.
Plant in well drained rich soil. Fertilize in early spring when
growth is 12 inches tall and after owering. Be patient peo-
nies normally do not bloom until the second or third year; if
they do, pinch off the blooms to encourage good plant growth.
The Paeonia is native to China. During the war no one
had any money so they shared a peony root.
Peonies came to Van Wert around the turn of the century.
Van Wert really was the Peony City of the world in the mid 30s.
Charles Wassenberg grew 50 acres of peonies and iris. Lee R.
Bonnewitz had 20 acres of peonies and iris, where the Starr
Commonwealth was. There were many other commercial and
private peony gardens. Red Charm, a true red, and Beauti,
a white with a yellow center, both of these originated in Van
Wert. Vera Wassenberg peony can be found in some places.
President Kathy Muse opened the business meeting with 22
members and six guests in attendance. Committee reports were
given. The plant sale held yearly in Fountain Park was a suc-
cess. A chair person is needed for the Library 2014 Christmas
tree. Camp Clay Friendship Garden has been cleaned and a
truck load of mulch spread. Fountain Park, the cleaning and
planting is nished. Roses will be on a six-week feeding sched-
ule with Julie Kennedy doing this. The Museum Garden has
been cleaned and planted. A motion was passed that the Club
purchase a banner for the 2014 June Flower Show for display
outside of the Wassenberg Art Center. Garden work schedules
were passed out.
An organic fertilizer sample, Haven Brand Natural Brew
Tea manufactured on a cattle ranch in San Juan Capistrano,
California, was given to each present. This is a natural brew,
soil conditioner and will jump start plants blooming.
Hostesses for the meeting were Carol Zedaker, Julie Ken-
nedy and Kate DeVogel. The next meeting will be July 9 at
9:30 a.m. at the home of member Bev Wolke.

A DHI Media publication Saturday, June 21 & Sunday, June 22, 2014 A5
DHI Media Group Publisher
Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
To Americans of a certain age, the
names are synonymous with the terms
traitor and disloyalty. At the end of
their saga, the Rosenbergs were found
guilty of conspiracy to commit espio-
nage and sentenced to death, becom-
ing the rst civilians in U.S. history to
be executed for espionage.
Julius and Ethel were born to
Jewish immigrants in New York
City. Julius graduated with an elec-
trical engineering degree and then
joined the Army Signal Corps just
before the start of World War II.
Ethel had grown up wanting to be
an actress and singer but she eventu-
ally became a secretary at a shipping
company where she was involved in
labor disputes. The two met at Young
Communist League meetings where
they were both members. To many,
the two were a normal, quiet couple
with two sons who went to work and
took care of their family.
After World War II was over, the
United States was shocked when the
Soviet Union was able to produce its
own nuclear weapons by 1949. They
had purposely kept the Soviets in
the dark about the Manhattan Proj-
ect, neither President Roosevelt nor
later Truman trusting Joseph Stalin
and his long-term, geo-politcial in-
tentions. Many analysts in the U.S.
government believed it would take
Russian scientists 10-15 years to
catch up with the research they had
just completed with the American
atomic bombs just dropped on Japan.
But then a key break in the mys-
tery started authorities down the
path to the Rosenbergs. In January
of 1950, only months after the rst
Russian successful atomic test, a Ger-
man refugee who had worked on the
British part of the Manhattan Project
confessed to giving important docu-
ments to the Soviets throughout the
war. From there, U.S. authorities were
able to nd his courier, Harry Gold.
After being confronted, Gold told
the tale of how he had also been tak-
ing secret information from a machin-
ist at Los Alamos, Sgt. David Green-
glass. Greenglass was the brother of
Ethel Rosenberg. When interviewed,
Greenglass stated Julius had recruited
him to spy as early as 1944 on a visit
to New Mexico.
When the news broke about the
Rosenbergs, another man Julius had
convinced to pass secret information,
Morton Sobell, was in Mexico City.
He tried to escape to Europe without
using his passport but was unable to
get out of the country. According to
a book he wrote later, Sobell said the
Mexican secret police broke into his
hotel room one night, bound him and
drove him to the U.S. border where he
was thrown across. U.S. ofcials just
happened to be there to arrest him
when he was deported. The Mexi-
can government ofcially claimed to
have no knowledge of the event.
The trial, as was to be expected,
was a media circus. However, unlike
other trials, including the one for Al-
ger Hiss, no journalists expressed any
doubt about the Rosenbergs guilt,
including leading Communist news-
papers in the country.
The testimony was devastating
for the Rosenbergs. Greenglass him-
self talked about how he had made
sketches of an implosion-style atomic
bomb at their kitchen table while Eth-
el typed up his notes and Julius asked
questions. That information was about
the type of atomic bomb dropped on
Nagasaki with the nickname of Fat
Man. The couple was found guilty in
a short amount of time.
A cry did go out about the sentence
of execution for the two after the trial,
however. Nobel Prize winners, sci-
entists, even Albert Einstein, called
the trial and sentence a conspiracy
against the couple because they were
Rosenbergs become rst U.S. citizens executed as spies
ing N.Y. - Julius Rosenberg and his
wife, Ethel walked quietly to the
electric chair last night and were
executed for the crime of delivering
to Soviet Russia the secrets of the
atomic bomb.
Neither of the condemned spies
talked, nor attempted to talk, as the
last moments came.
Both entered the death chamber
in Sing Sing Prison - only a few mo-
ments apart - with a rm step and
a stony face. They were executed
shortly before sunset, so that the
grim task would be nished before
the beginning of the Jewish Sabbath.
It was the day after their 14th
wedding anniversary.
They were the rst non-military
convicts in the history of the United
States to be executed for espionage.
At the hour of retribution, crowds
gathered demonstrating in New
York, London, and Paris. Hysterical
sympathizers, screaming and cry-
ing, milled around a speakers stand
in New Yorks Union Square.
Street ghts broke out in Paris,
and several policemen were report-
ed wounded. In London, thousands
roved the streets, waving copies of
the Communist Newspaper, The
Daily Worker, which carried a sin-
gle word in giant type - Murder.
In Dublin, two bottles of kero-
sene were thrown through the win-
dow of the U.S. Information ofce.
They did not explode.
But in Ossining, where the pris-
on is located, the night was quiet.
Heavy details of police and state
troopers, guarding temporary bar-
ricades, met no demonstrators.
As the xed hour approached,
two telephone lines were opened be-
tween the ofce of Warden Wilfred
L. Denno and Washington - presum-
ably to be in touch with the White
House and the ofce of Attorney-
General Herbert Brownell.
The Rosenbergs spent most of
their last day together. Warden Den-
no said they talked from about noon
to 6:20 p.m. EST in the womans
wing of the prison. They were sepa-
rated by a wire screen.
The party of ofcial witnesses
entered the death chamber a few
moments before 7 p.m. EST. It is
a square room. Behind the electric
chair was a white, wheeled table. In
front were four rows of benches, like
pews in a church.
The room was heavy with si-
lence. From overhead, the lights
beamed on the electric chair.
A moment later, a voice was
heard in the corridor leading in
from the death chamber. It was low
but distinct.

25 Years Ago
This week in 1989, fed-
eral prosecutors were push-
ing for Oliver North to go
to prison for his role in the
Iran-Contra scandal. As a part
of a sentencing memo, they
went on to say they believed
North viewed himself as be-
ing above the law and that
he had not shown one iota of
remorse for his actions. Ana-
lysts said sending the former
White House aide to prison
would send a message that
government ofcials could no
longer use a brazen cover-up,
lie to Congress, and collect a
substantial gratuity and still
only receive what amounted
to a slap on the wrist as far as

50 Years Ago
This week in 1964, pro-
ponents of the one man,
one vote theory of govern-
ment celebrated a big win in
the U.S. Supreme Court. In
a groundbreaking change to
governmental structure, the
Court ruled that both branch-
es of state legislatures must
be apportioned by population
within their districts. Ana-
lysts believed the decision had
wide-ranging effects, all the
way down to municipal and
county-level governments.
Duncan Thorpe, public
relations director of the Ohio
Tuberculosis and Health As-
sociation, told a gathering in

demic in the Celina area.

This week in 1939, John
C. Gall, legal counsel for the
National Association of Man-
ufacturers, urged Congress
to make closed shops and the
check-off system illegal in or-
der to level the playing eld
in workplace negotiations. He
also recommended amending
the National Labor Relations
Act so that employees could
also be punished for unfair
labor practices. The changes
would address the make up of
the National Labor Relations
Board which had proved to
be intensely pro-CIO, decid-
ing cases nearly universally
against employers and inde-
pendent unions.
Van Wert Mayor John H.
Morrison declared his displea-
sure at the seeming unwilling-

long-promised sidewalks and
curbing project. The district
WPA ofce responded by say-
ing they had sent back the pa-
perwork for the project asking
for additional information and
then a second time for even
more explanation. Morrison
countered by stating the city
had never received the re-
quests and also had never sent
in the revisions the district of-
ce said they had gathered.
25, 50, and 75
Years Ago
We have just completed another successful mo-
torcoach tour to Chicago. We went from the speak-
easy in the south end of Chicago up to Lincoln
Park where you will nd my favorite restaurant
The Bagel. It was a great opportunity to intro-
duce everyone to some good old fashioned kosher
cooking: from kasha to kreplach and matzo balls
to mouthwatering pastrami and corned beef. I am
sitting here salivating while I write. As some of
you know, I have said for the last few trips that this
is my last for awhile. As a dear friend of mine
asked So hows that working out for you? Well,
several people on the bus suggested that we look
at New England in the fall of 2015. Thats like 16
months away, who can think that far ahead? You
can and unfortunately you may have to.
Bookings for the 2015 season of color are
going fast. I would say we would need to have
everyone with at least half the cost by Septem-
ber 1, 2014. Thats why we will be offering insur-
ance just in case things change between 2014 and
2015. The lighthouses on the coast of Maine and
beautiful colors in the mountains of Vermont and
New Hampshire will be just some of the high-
lights of this trip. Were thinking we might add a
night in Boston along the way. Were also look-
ing at Seven
Hills Inn
in Lenox,
setts stay-
ing in what
some might
describe as a
castle. For you ice cream lovers there is Ben &
Jerrys Factory Tour in Waterbury, Vermont and
the home of Friendly Ice Cream in Wilbraham,
Massachusetts. Like some outdoor clothes and
accessories? We have L.L. Bean open 24 hours a
day! Picture eating lunch on the shore at Harras-
eeket Lunch & Lobster Company It is a most
inviting setting to have your chowdah, shrimp
and of course a Maine lobstah Walk the quaint
little streets of Boothbay and move up the coast
to Acadia National Park with Cadillac Mountain,
Jordans Pond (best popovers in the world with a
spot of tea), and Thunder Hole. If this intrigues
you please let me know and well get you all the
details. I would imagine it would take 8 or 9 days
to complete this journey. Oh, will this be a fabu-
lous trip.

Husband, Wife Keep Silent as Death
This is the rst in a series
of interviews I had with elder-
ly people in the early 1980s.
April, 1981 interview
with Alex Teman, age 83
Alex said, My dad was a
shoe cobbler and I have an old
wooden vise he used. He was
also a carpenter and a farmer.
He worked in a grist mill and
on a canal boat. He was an
orphan and ran away from an
orphanage at Cincinnati when
he was 14 years-old. His father
was killed in the Civil War and
when his mother died, they put
him in an orphanage.
I went to school in Man-
dale and when a boat would
come through on the canal, our
teacher would take us out on
the bridge and we would hang
on to the railings and the boat
would swivel the bridge open,
and after it passed through,
then two or three men would
close the bridge. In the spring,
they would oat huge ship tim-
bers that were hued square,
down the canal. They used
short chains with studs in each
end, that they used to tie the
timbers together and then they
would pile some more on top
and make a raft.
I have a 1902 Sears auto-
mobile. In 1924 or 25, I moved
into a house owned by Pete
Backus and he had this old
car in an old garage out back.
The chickens had roosted on
it and it was a mess. I tried to
buy it from Pete, but he said he
wouldnt sell it, as his father-
in-law, who was a doctor in
New York State, gave it to him.
The doctor drove it all over
in the mountains, visiting his
patients. I was told that Sears
didnt make cars until 1906,
but I have a book that shows
that Sears bought this guy out
in 1906, that built the car. In
1910, Pete moved to Delphos.
When he died, the grandchil-
dren got the car, and they sold
it to Les Metcalf and Tony
King. They pushed it all over
creation and nally got it to
run, but not very good.
In about 1944 I bought it
off of them and stored it in a
round iron tank at the junkyard
until 1951, when some people
wanted me to drive it in the
centennial parade. I got it out,
and a mechanic from Iowa,
Bob Brinkman, got it to run. He
worked on it for about a week
and it cost me two or three fths
of whiskey. I have been running
it in parades since then and got
all kinds of trophies. The car
had solid rubber tires that were
worn out, so I got some gasoline
hose and put a number 9 wire
inside the hose and put them on
the wheels and they made the
best tires you ever seen.
In 1944, I went to work for
Nathan (Liff?) who had a junk
business on Canal Street be-
tween Second & Third Streets,
where the Firestone store is now.
Raabe Ford, next door south,
had a Model T touring car and
they put a roadster top on the
back half of it, which left the
front seat open and they wanted
me to drive it in a parade. They
painted my face all black and
had me wear a high hat and
white gloves. They had a nine-
or 10-year-old boy riding in the
front with me, and a woman and
her daughter rode in the back.
They were all dressed up, t to
kill. We started on Second &
Canal streets and went to Main
street, then up Main Street.
When I got to Third street, didnt
I see my friends from Mandale,
all colored people. They said,
Why there is Alex Teman, haw,
haw, haw, all painted up to look
like a colored chauffeur. They
got the biggest kick out of it.
Raabe gave me a brand new tire
for my car, for driving in the pa-
rade for them.
I worked 14 years for Na-
than Liff, and then they burned
out, and then moved to Bax-
ters place on Canal Street, just
south of the railroad where the
monument place owns now.
We worked there three or four
years and then Nathan bought
the place where I have my junk
yard now (just south of the
Bending Works Co.) and I and
Bill Lavine, Nats brother-in-
law who did all the bookwork,
worked together for about a
year. That is when they started
to take out Society Security. I
only worked about a year then,
and Nat left and went to Ft.
Wayne with a big boiler outt.
He wanted me to go with him,
and I wouldnt go, so he got
me a job in Dayton, building a
smokestack. I worked there 1
week and the guy wouldnt pay
me as much as he promised so
I came back to Delphos.
Interviews with seniors
A good many years ago, George Santa-
yana said something to the effect of Those
who fail to learn from history are doomed
to repeat it. My high school history teacher
said the same thing during a half-hearted
attempt to inspire the class to pay attention
to his long, senseless ramblings. Not a great
introduction to history, but I will admit to
you: Im a history geek.
My high school history teacher did
nothing to enhance this. But I love the
study of times gone by. Dont get me
wrong though, Im very glad Im not liv-
ing as a settler in the Northwest Terri-
tory in the 1830s, scooping up a dinner
of fatback and wearing a dead animal on
my head. But I do love to read and learn
about days gone by.
In college I took history classes just
to accumulate hours toward my degree. I
could have taken anything, but history is
what I wanted to learn. Political history,
military history, economic history, archi-
tectural history, whatever. I use to watch
a lot of the History Channel until half the
programming turned into American Pick-
ers, which has a limited focus on history.
The reason I am fascinated with his-
tory simply is that kind of life will never
be back. We cant watch the inauguration
of Abraham Lincoln or study what life was
like on a southern plantation during slav-
ery. I can stare at the old picture postcards
of small midwestern cities and try to imag-
ine what those places actually looked like
in person, what they smelled like, and what
they sounded like.
I think studying history is benecial, not
just so we know who John Quincy Adams
was. Although thats not a bad idea. Even
today we are being pushed back into histo-
ry. I saw an article about how valuable toys
from the 1990s are today. Ive gotten used
to being pushed back to the point where
the toys I played with, the close and play
record player, the Spirograph, and Rock
Em, Sock Em Robots, are now valuable
What is getting strange is that the
toys I bought for my kids are now being
sought as antiques. Like Tickle Me Elmo.
This little shaking red furry dude is now a
collectors item. Same for Mr. Bucket and
Chicken Limbo. I bought these things for
the kids I mean, Santa brought them to
my kids. Now they are a celebrated part
of history. Since even my kids are a part of
history, why shouldnt I love it all? Read the
b o o k s ?
Play the
mu s i c ?
T h i n k
about it.
T h e
Bible is
not only
a living revelatory book for those who be-
lieve, but its also a book of history. There
are four biographies of Jesus, written by
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. And they
all differ a little bit since everybodys wit-
ness accounts are usually a little bit differ-
ent. Of course, what some people claim is
really history, others will counter that its
all wrong.
History is written by the victors, right?
An American history book written by a
Cherokee will probably read differently
than what you are used to hearing. And
were even told lies about history. The
whole bit about George Washington and
the cherry tree was all made up. But we
were taught that at an early age, probably
so wed have an example in never telling
a lie.
There are many reasons
why I participate in Relay for
Life. The rst and most im-
portant is because I truly be-
lieve that research is the way
to beat cancer. I know there
are many people who could
use help with medical bills,
gas, food and lodging when
a family is struck by this dis-
ease. The money raised at the
Relay each year would hardly
touch those bills for one per-
son. However, you never know
which dollar is going to nd
the cure for a cancer and make
those hospital bills and other
expenses unnecessary for any-
Another reason I relay
is because I have lost fam-
ily members to this enemy of
mankind. My father was taken
16 years ago and my aunt soon
followed. They had different
types of cancer but suffered
much the same. It was hard
to let them go but even harder
to ask them to stay when they
were so tired and in pain. I
was by each of their bedsides
when they took that nal
breath. It was heartbreaking to
see strong, once vibrant peo-
ple taken in such a manner.
The rst question is always
why? Why my dad? Why my
aunt? Why? Until we nd a
cure, it will be why not. Until
we nd a cure, it will be our
friends and loved ones and US
who battle this disease with
our bodies.
I dont know anyone who
hasnt been touched by can-
cer. Its a disease that doesnt
distinguish between race, gen-
der or creed. No one is safe. I
know people who have lived
their lives exercising and eat-
ing right and taking every
precaution and they still hear
those words: You have cancer.
Cancer doesnt care if you
are a nice person or not so
much. It doesnt care if you are
going to leave behind loved
ones or those who need you.
It doesnt care that you havent
accomplished what you would
like in life. It doesnt care that
you are a mother, father, son,
daughter, wife, etc.
Relayers care.
We want you to live a long,
happy life. We want you to
hold your grandchildren and
even great-grandchildren and
tell them how we beat cancer.
We want cancer to go down in
the medical books as some-
thing that once killed and
maimed many but no longer
exists because people cared
enough to nd a cure. I have
seen many survivors hear that
dreaded news a second and
even third time.
Wouldnt it be nice to hear
other words? How about, NO
Year after year I watch
those brave survivors make
the rst lap during opening
ceremonies and I choke back
the tears for those who are no
longer with us and the new
faces in the crowd. It doesnt
seem to end.
My dream is for Relay to no
longer be needed. My dream
is for it be a fond memory; re-
member when
T h u m b s
down again to
the railroad and
the city. The
crossings still
are not repaired. The other
day I saw a buzzard ying
over the crossing again and
again. No doubt waiting for
some driver to cross going 25
mph. Not to worry. Buzzards
dont move in on anything
moving. If you crossed at 25
mph you will be shaking so
bad he will y away.

To the editor,
My 3-year-old daughter and I drove to
a local drugstore Thursday evening to get
medicine for my son and before we even
got into the store, my daughter was ask-
ing if she could get a race car they have
there. I had no idea what she was talking
about but as soon as we got in the store,
she was pointing to the race cars. Of
course, I told her we werent there to buy
a car and we went on our way.
After getting what we needed, there
we stood in line waiting to check out
right by the race cars. My daughter had
taken two off the shelf and was rolling
them on the oor playing her heart out. I
told her to put them back and get out of
the way of an older man pushing a cart up
to the counter. He stopped her and asked
if she likes cars. She said yes and then he
asked her to see it.
I was continuing to checkout as he
asked the clerk how much the cars cost. I
spoke up and said way too much for a toy.
He insisted on buying it for her! I looked
at my daughter and said, Tell him no
thank you. You dont need it. She looked
up at me with those big pink sun glasses
she was wearing and said, But I want it
So, he bought her the car with a smile.
His grandson that was with him assured
me that he likes to do things like that.
As we left the store, my daughter was
all smiles and my heart was happy for
her. As we drove off, the man was walk-
ing to his van while his grandson hopped
in to drive and I noticed he was wearing a
Navy T-shirt. I waved and smiled and he
gave me a salute.
As I pulled out I couldnt help but tear
up at what a nice and thoughtful thing
that man did. There are good people in
this world. My heart is happy tonight and
so is my daughter.
God bless that complete stranger.
What a kind man he is!

To the editor,
A new factory farm will soon break
ground on Paulding County Road 95.
The people of Paulding will be down-
wind and the farm will be 1.5 miles
southwest of their reservoir. There are
17-20 more of this type of farm in the
planning stages for Paulding County. We
currently have at least 25. Also, people in
other counties are now building lagoons
in our county and are trucking manure in
from their county.
A concern for the health, air and water
quality in Paulding County has risen to a
new height in regards to this additional
farm. Residents of Paulding County,
including area villages, should be con-
cerned with the lack of local control and
state policy to limit the number of fac-
tory farms and disposal of manure in
our county.
Ohio legislatures and Ohio Depart-
ment of Agriculture have failed to ad-
dress issues to protect our air, our water,
our health and our property rights.
Our county is rural with a proud tra-
dition of agriculture. Factory farms are
not agriculture but industry and should
be regulated as such. All towns and a
villages in addition to our rural areas in
Paulding County are affected.
Since it is urgent that we act immedi-
ately, a meeting for all concerned citizens
in Paulding County is planned for Tues-
day, June 24, at 7 p.m. in the Paulding
Eagles Hall.
Elected ofcials and candidates are
especially urged to attend.

Public meeting on

By Nancy
Ed Gebert
Any reasonable person must be asking themselves what
it will take to nally have some peace in the Middle East.
Last week a group going by the name of the Islamic State
in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) captured several northern cities in
Iraq, battled with Iraqi troops outside a large oil renery,
and threatened an attack on the capital of Baghdad. In re-
sponse, President Obama this week pledged to send 300
military advisers to the country in order to assess the threat
of the jihad group and also to train and advise Iraqi mili-
tary personnel. At the same time the President vowed there
would be no combat for U.S. troops in Iraq.
There was also lots of nger pointing as both sides of the
political aisle attempted to utilize a little revisionist history.
It even went so far as President Obama apparently forget-
ting he had stood at a podium two years ago and claimed
his administration had ended the war, this week saying U.S.
troops left Iraq because of Prime Minister al-Maliki. But
now, how we got to this point is not as important as what the
American policy will be moving forward.
The answer: No one has any idea.
The advisers being stationed in Iraq will be Navy SEALS
and Army Rangers so the idea of not calling them combat
troops is really a practice in semantics. According to mili-
tary ofcials the advisers will be placed in multiple ofces
around the country where they will work with groups of 12-
15 Iraqi personnel. Mostly they will offer tactical advice
while studying maps and logistics. They will also gather
intelligence for the Obama administration as the President
tries to decide upon further action, such as airstrikes and the
use of drones.
The big question, of course, is whether or not this plan
will work.
There is no doubt ISIS would be destroyed in a concen-
trated battle with U.S. forces. If they are not smart enough
to realize that, then the uprising will most likely not last
long and the advisers should be home within the next 12-18
If, however, ISIS changes to tactics of survival - small
military campaigns, avoiding battles where they are out-
numbered, attacking and hiding in civilian centers where air
strikes will be less likely to be used - then the ght against
the group could last as long as ISIS has money, supplies,
and ghters. The Taliban and Al Qaeda has shown them the
game plan.
But even that answer is problematic. The Obama admin-
istration has increased the danger for the advisers with their
recent trade of ve terrorists for one soldier. This one-sided
swap of personnel has been touted in the radical Islamic
world as a huge victory for the terrorists and they have used
it as a successful recruiting tool. ISIS can now attempt to do
the same thing: overrun these small installations where only
a handful of troops will be stationed and capture the U.S.
military advisers to be used as pawns.
Our caution in this situation has more to do with a histor-
ical perspective. In 1961, President Kennedy assigned 400
military advisers to Vietnam. That quickly grew to 745 and
then on to more than 3,400 by February of 1962. It is not
that we believe there is a high likelihood of a tremendous
escalation in adviser numbers occurring, however, it is a
possibility. This administration, and portions of the country
as well, have shown enemy combatants overseas our current
group of leaders do not have the will to do what is needed to
win a war. They are much more inclined to become ner-
vous when the costs grow and begin looking for a way out
- even if the ending leaves open the increased possibility of
later uprisings, necessitating ghting the same people over
the same ground all over again.
If ISIS takes these lessons to heart and just tries to outlast
the stomach of the American leaders or if the Iraqi army
proves incapable of winning, then that 300 number will
soon be rising.
And we will have more American blood spilled in the
Middle East.
Three hundred
and rising?

We have a problem in this country when
191 of the most lenient administrative law
judges have approved more than 85 percent
of Social Security disability claims they
heard from 2005 to 2013 at a cost to tax-
payers of $153 billion.
Most of those claims had been denied
one or two times previously by SS work-
ers in state ofces. This act
of rubber-stamping claims
results in lifetime payments
to many people and has led to
a recent hearing by the U.S.
House Oversight Committee
chaired by Darrell Issa, R-
Keep in mind, lifetime
benets average $300,000.
Average monthly payments
are $1,150, according to the Social Security
Administration. This column is based on
coverage of the congressional hearing by
AP reporter Stephen Ohlemacher.
The two most lenient administrative
judges called to testify were Tennessee
Judge Gerald Krafsur and Pennsylvania
Judge Charles Bridges. They have held
their positions a long time and were ar-
rogant when called to the congressional
Krafsur approved 99 percent of the cas-
es he heard from 2005 to 2013. As a result,
Social Security is on the hook for an esti-
mated $1.8 billion. Bridges has approved
95 percent of his cases. Both judges hear
3 to 4 times the number of cases as other
administrative law judges. There are a total
of 1,400 judges.
A skeptical Chairman Issa asked
Bridges Are the people working below
you always wrong (when denying disabil-
ity claims)? Should every physical ailment
qualify a person for a lifetime disability
I would say they are not legally
trained, Bridges responded. I dont pay
attention to those gures. All I do is con-
centrate on each case, one at a time.
Is there any wonder the American
people have lost condence in government
agencies? Many of these well-intentioned
programs have become targets of dubious
gamers and corrupt of-
cials. Liberal judges nd
it hard to say no to spend-
ing taxpayer money.
As unemployed work-
ers, and aging baby
boomers, run out of gov-
ernment benets, they
have suddenly discovered
disability benets are
pretty easy to get. Part of
the blame can be put on to the effects of the
Great Recession.
Some of the administrative judges
say they are rubber-stamping the claims
because the SS disability program has
937,000 cases pending. And, like the cur-
rent situation with the Veterans Affairs Ad-
ministration, there is pressure to reduce the
SS ofcials warn that the disability trust
fund is projected to run out of money in
2016 if nothing is done. This could trigger
an automatic 20 percent cut in benets. You
can bet that Congress wont let that happen,
especially during an election year.
How bad is this problem? Well, 11 mil-
lion disabled workers, spouses and children
get benets. That is a 45 percent increase
in just the last decade. An additional 8.4
million get supplemental security income
which is for low income people.
While there are 200 judges who cast
suspicion on the program by playing San-
ta Claus with disability claims, the other
1,200 take a responsible approach. The ap-
proval rate for all claims dropped in 2013 to
56 percent from 72 percent in 2005.
A former colleague shared this story
with me many years ago. It reminds us to
be good employees and to value personal
An elderly carpenter was ready to retire.
He told his employer-contractor of his plans
to leave the house-building business and
live a more leisurely life with his wife en-
joying his extended family. He would miss
the paycheck but he needed to retire.
The contractor was sorry to see his good
worker go and asked if he could build just
one more house as a personal favor. The
carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy
to see that his heart was not in his work.
He resorted to shoddy workmanship
and used inferior materials. It was an un-
fortunate way to end a dedicated career.
When the carpenter nished his work
the employer came to inspect the house. He
handed the front door key to the carpenter.
This is your house, he said, My gift to
The carpenter was shocked. What a
shame! If he had only known he was build-
ing his own house, he would have done it
all so differently.
So it is with us. We build our lives, a day
at a time, often putting less than our best
into the building. Then with a shock we re-
alize we have to live in the house we have
built (or the life weve built).
If we could do it over, wed do it much
differently. But we cannot go back.
You are the carpenter. Each day you
hammer a nail, place a board or erect a
wall. Your attitudes and the choices you
make today build the house (life) youll live
in tomorrow.
Build wisely with eternity in view.

There has been much debate over whether the death pen-
alty should be eliminated or continued as is. Should someone
who has taken the life of a person, have their life taken from
them to equalize their act of murder? It seems odd that our
country would denounce the practice of murder by committing
the very same act. When a loved one or even any other person
is murdered, it is only reasonable to want that person to be
punished. Yet it is difcult to say who has the nal decision of
whether a person should live or die. There are so many factors
that play into determining whether the accused is innocent or
should serve punishment. From a range of whether the action
was completely planned out to an act of insanity, we should not
judge. For Luke 6:37 states, Judge not, and you will not be
judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive,
and you will be forgiven.
It is stated in the Bible that murder is a sin, but getting even
is not the answer. Romans 12:19 says, Beloved, never avenge
yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written,
Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. Due to my
faith in the Bible, I believe it is not the peoples fate to decide
the death of another human being. Who are we to judge the ac-
tions of those who have murdered? It is understandable that the
families and friends of the lost loved one would coincide with
having the death penalty, but in the end the judgement of God
is more important than what the government decides. Death is
not to be taken lightly and in the end should not be the decision
of any human being who may be in revenge of those who have

Lenient judges visit the woodshed
We the
The Citizen
and the
Theres good news for Ohio
citizens in the results of a state-
wide, county-by-county public
records audit that was conduct-
ed by more than 60 Ohio media
outlets in April under the aus-
pices of the Ohio Coalition for
Open Government.
But you shouldnt get too
excited. Problems with open re-
cords in Ohio are deeper and more complicated than ever. Let
me explain why.
Why were this years results so much better? I suspect the
main reason is greater awareness by government ofcials and
it also suggests that, stereotypes to the contrary, local newspa-
pers continue to keep local ofcials on their toes. The training
of local ofcials on the importance and requirements of Ohios
records laws is far broader and more consistent than it was in
2004, the last time such an audit was conducted.
However, keep the results in perspective. This is all the audit
showed: When you request a record from local government,
and theres no doubt its a public record, the chances of obtain-
ing the record in the correct manner are quite good.
Emphasize that phrase no doubt. Attorneys who are ex-
perts on Ohio laws checked our requests in advance. Records
such as meeting minutes, salary information and expense re-
ports, are unquestionably public records.
The problem is this: A string of court decisions and legisla-
tive changes over the past 10 years have closed more records
than ever and shifted the burden of proof strongly against citi-
zens when there is any ambiguity
In other words, when a government ofcial wants to say
no, unless it is 99 percent clear that the record is open, it
is getting harder and harder to win. Even if you do, the Ohio
Supreme Court has taken what legislators made difcult and
now made it nearly impossible to collect attorney fees. This
means only the wealthiest can afford to pursue these cases, giv-
ing government a tremendous tactical advantage. Unlike most
states, there is no way to ght a state agency and the majority
of local governmental denials in Ohio without hiring a lawyer
and going to the time and expense of litigation.
Consider the 2012 case, Zidonis v. Columbus State, a wrong-
ful discharge action. The Supreme Court gave governmental
agencies new latitude to claim records requests are overly
broad. Today the standard appears to be that overly broad is
whatever government says it is.
While we were told that the Zidonis case involved narrow
facts and wouldnt apply to many situations, it is popping up
in cases as arguments in favor of keeping records secret. That
was the same argument made in another noteworthy case in
which the Cincinnati school board did an end-run around the
open records law by using a post ofce box and a search rm to
hide the names of school superintendent applicants. And, guess
what? Lawyers for Kent State University cited the Cincinnati
case to keep names of candidates secret in KSUs recent presi-
dential search.
Meanwhile, exceptions are ever-growing. Ten years ago,
there were far fewer in the law. Theyve now run out of single
letters to attach exceptions to Ohio Revised Code 149.43 the
open records law. Were at exception bb now. Hundreds of
other exceptions are peppered in the statutes. One of the most
abused exceptions is the trade secrets exemption. Mean-
while, legislators and courts have made it harder to get infor-
mation about tax-dependent organizations such as JobsOhio,
charter schools and privatized prisons.
Then there is Ohios actual denition of public records. Be-
fore a court will even consider if something is open, it must t
the denition of an actual government record. It cant be an
open record if it isnt a public record. We need a broader deni-
tion that the courts will support.
Finally, consider the sheer volume of content that gov-
ernment is creating, just like the rest of us. It takes time and
expense to review hundreds of documents. I agree with gov-
ernment groups that this is a genuine issue. Were not unsym-
pathetic, but maybe if we had fewer exceptions and ambigui-
ties, those searches would go a lot faster.
So, lets be grateful for the progress that the audit showed
but keep our focus on xing the big problems that remain so
Ohio citizens have the access to information they deserve.

Results are encouraging but
major problems remain

Governmental leaders, like presidents,
worry about their legacy what the writ-
ers of history will say about them. Well,
what history writers will say depends on
whether they agreed with that president. If
he believed and did what the writers liked,
it will be a good president story. If he was
on the other side of most issues, writers will
take him to task. Thats wrong to do, but
easy to do.
Many people dont learn the lessons of
history, they remember whether or not they
liked that president Nixon, F.D.R., J.F.K.
We are stuck with the memory of whether
a person was well-liked instead of what he
did. He could have done the stupidest things
for four years, but if he made people happy
or comfortable, hell get a good review.
But when you study history, you learn
more than about a guys smile. You study
facts, and you learn from them. For those
who dont learn, well Santayana will tell
you the rest.

Then Rabbi Irving Ko-
slowe entered. He wore black
robes with a white praying
shawl around his shoulders
and the rabbinical hat. As he
came in, he was intoning the
words of the 23rd Psalm
The Lord is my shepherd, I
shall not want.
Rosenberg, 35, wore dark
brown trousers, a white under-
shirt with short sleeves, and
low slippers without heels.
He turned, without guid-
ance, to the electric chair and
sat down quietly
Rabbi Koslowe moved to
the left of the chair, beside the
witness benches. He kept his
eyes on the prayer book. His
voice dropped to a whisper.
He prayed steadily, and twice
kissed the book.
The guards stepped away.
A signal was given to the ex-
ecutioner, Joseph Francell,
in an alcove to the left of the
There were three massive
charges of electricity. The
rst lasted three seconds, the
second and third 57 seconds
each. He was dead in two and
three-quarters minutes.
The humming stopped. It
was 7:06 and three quarters
Two physicians approached
with stethoscopes. They lis-
tened for a long moment. Then
one said, I pronounce this
man dead.
The body was lifted onto
the white table and wheeled
out of the room.
A guard moved to the door
leading to the corridor. He
left it open an inch or two and
stood there listening.
About three minutes later,
Rabbi Koslowes voice again
came from beyond the door.
The guard pulled it open.
Ethel Rosenberg, 37,
walked behind him.
She wore a shapeless green
dress with a small white pat-
tern. It had no belt. The sleeves
were short and the neckline
was high and round. She also
wore slipper-type shoes.
Unlike her husband, she
looked around the room. Her
eyes ickered from face to
face, across the row of wit-
nesses and down the line of
Again, the black helmet,
straps and leg contacts were
set in place. Just before the
gear was placed on her head
and face, Mrs. Rosenberg
closed her eyes.
She winced, slightly, as
the electrode was xed on her
head. Her hair was black and
short cropped.
Then, the switch was
thrown and the metallic rattle
sounded again.
Mrs. Rosenberg had
stretched her arms along the
arms of the chair, with the
palms of her hands turned
upwards. Now, her hands
Then as before, the straps
were taken from her chest
and the doctors examined her.
This time the decision was not
immediate. They moved the
stethoscopes several times,
and there was a brief consulta-
tion of whispers.
They stepped away, mur-
mured to Warden Denno,
and the warden signaled the
guards to replace the straps.
Twice more, the switch was
thrown and a buzzing hum,
more vibration than sound,
lled the chamber.
Then it was nished. With
the second examination, a
doctor looked up and said, I
pronounce this woman dead.
The second execution had
begun at 7:11 and ended at
So closed the story Julius
and Ethel Rosenberg which
began more than three years
ago with the arrest of Dr.
Klaus Fuchs, German born
atomic scientist, who was
working in an atomic labora-
tory in Great Britain.
Julius was arrested July
17th, his wife August 11, 1950.
Each denied before God
and man the story that they
had all been units of an es-
pionage network designed to
ferret out the secrets of the
atomic energy commission.
(From page A5)
Others protested about Ethels role in the
crime, stating all she had done was transcribe
notes. Couriers like Gold and Sobell had only
received jail sentences. One of the prosecuting
team later confessed they had only charged her
the same as Julius in order to convince him to
talk about other spies in order to get her lenien-
cy. The ploy did not work, however, since Julius
never relinquished any information about other
possible spies.
At their sentencing, Judge Irving Kaufman
had harsh words for the couple, stating their ac-
tions had caused thousands of deaths and perhaps
put the world on the brink of a third world war:
I consider your crime worse than murder
I believe your conduct in putting into the hands
of the Russians the A-Bomb years before our
best scientists predicted Russia would perfect
the bomb has already caused, in my opinion, the
Communist aggression in Korea, with the resul-
tant casualties exceeding 50,000 and who knows
but that millions more of innocent people may
pay the price of your treason. Indeed, by your be-
trayal you undoubtedly have altered the course
of history to the disadvantage of our country. No
one can say that we do not live in a constant state
of tension. We have evidence of your treachery
all around us every day for the civilian defense
activities throughout the nation are aimed at pre-
paring us for an atom bomb attack.
In 2008, after decades of denying he had ever
been a spy for the Soviet Union, Morton Sobell
nally recanted, saying he had indeed helped Ju-
lius Rosenberg pass over top secret information
to the Soviets.
Here now is a reprint of the June 20, 1953,
Van Wert Times-Bulletin article detailing the ex-
ecution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

Bill was about starving to death, running
the junkyard by himself, so I worked with him
for just a short time and he pulled up stakes and
went to Ft. Wayne. Nat loaned me $100 and I
rented the yard from him. Shortly after this, I
bought me a place on South Jefferson street,
where Vanamatic is now. This was during the
depression and I mean things were tough. I had
a dozen guys hauling junk in and I could only
get $3 a ton for this old tin. We would sell a
carload or two and ship it to Kokomo.
Nat and an outt from Van Wert went to
Hawaii and cut up war material. Nat shipped
a car load of cannons free to the Jews in Je-
rusalem. Two or three years later, he came
back and I bought the junkyard from him for
I still own the junkyard, and John Nichols
has it open one or two days a week and pays
me rent. He has been operating it for 18 years
now. I wish I had just some of the old cars I cut
up for scrap. I never owned a car worth more
than $100 when I run the yard.
I never had a telephone when I operated
the yard. The Jews from Ft. Wayne, Sherman,
Aleman, Goldman, Waterman and others said,
Alex, why dont you get a phone so you can
call us when you got a load of scrap to sell? I
said, I cant afford it and I dont want a phone
bothering me when I want to sleep. They said,
You put the phone in. We will pay the bills.
I said no.
When I was brought home from the hospi-
tal after my heart attack, they put me in bed,
and after a while I heard a ring-ring and I won-
dered, what is that. Here my son told the phone
company to put a phone in, but he didnt tell us.
My wife and I do not travel anymore, as
we both have heart trouble, but we get around
pretty well yet.

Canal Bank
Motor Line
Construction has commenced on the Mi-
ami & Erie Canal railway. This traction line
is one of the most unique in the world. A num-
ber of gangs of men are at present grading the
towpath along the canal and in a few days a
portion of the track will be laid. The Miami
& Erie Canal Transportation company, that
will operate this railway, is largely made up of
Cleveland men. Two big syndicates, the Ever-
ett & Moore and the Mandlebaum-Pomeroy,
are interested in the venture.
The Cleveland Construction Company that
has the contract for the motor cars to be used
on the railway, on Saturday, forwarded to Co-
lumbus, plans and specications for the motors.
The Miami & Erie Canal traverses the en-
tire state, connecting Toledo with Cincinnati.
The country is thickly populated and there is
consequently a large volume of freight to be
handled. In the past, the canal has been used
to a limited extent, owing to the difculties en-
countered in the old method of towing boats.
The motor cars will not be of a handsome
appearance. They are built for service. They
will be equipped with 150 horse-power motors
and will be strong enough to haul ten heavily-
loaded canal boats, at a speed of ten miles an
hour. This speed will not be maintained, how-
ever, the state charter stipulating a uniform
speed of four miles per hour, so as not to erode
the canal banks. The cars will be seven feet
ten inches long and will be about ve feet six
inches from the oor to the roof. Doors will
open from either side of the car. Steps will also
go up from the ends, where they will connect
with a running board at the foot of the car. A
brass railing will extend down both sides, by
which operators may hang in safety when it is
necessary to work outside the car.
The wheels will be of standard gauge. The
rails will be of standard gauge. The rails will
weigh 75 pounds to the yard and will be heav-
ily braced. Eighteen of the cars described will
be built at once. Contracts for two cars of a
smaller pattern will be awarded in a few days.
The small cars will be used in pulling the
boats under bridges in Cincinnati that are too
low for the ordinary motor car.
Each of the larger cars will weigh 30 tons.
They will receive power from the Edison
Lighting Company of Cincinnati, and will be
operated from 14 substations scattered along
the state. These substations will be connected
by telephone.

man twice convicted of killing
a woman and eight children
at a birthday sleepover in the
citys deadliest house re was
sentenced Friday to 35 years
in federal prison.
Antun Lewis, 30, had asked
the judge in U.S. District
Court in Cleveland for mercy
and expressed condolences
to the families of the victims,
some of whom he knew. He
said someone committed the
crime but its a lie that person
was me.
Lewis, a convicted drug
dealer, was deemed ineligible
for the death penalty because
of a mental disability. His at-
torneys presented evidence he
has an IQ of 70 or less. Under
federal sentencing guidelines,
he could have been sentenced
to life for his arson conviction.
The re killed 33-year-old
Medeia Carter, four of her
children and four other young-
sters attending a birthday
sleepover on May 21, 2005.
Carters mother, Evelyn
Martin, also spoke at the hear-
ing, recounting the horric
events of that late night and
early morning. Six of the eight
children who died were Mar-
tins grandchildren. She said
she rushed to the house when
she learned of the re, pushed
through a crowd and screamed
one question over and over:
Where are my babies?
I had to stand there and
watch them bring them out
one by one, Martin said.
She recalled seeing some
of her grandchildren zipped
in body bags and the horrible
sight of skin falling off one
of her grandsons, who later
I hope you live long
enough so all the skin falls off
your damned body, she said,
glaring at Lewis, who did not
look at her.
Authorities said Lewis, up-
set over a drug debt, doused
the three-story buildings rst
oor with gasoline.
Judge Solomon Oliver
said he had trouble believing
Lewis set the re over a drug
debt and called the case the
toughest he has heard in 20
years on the federal bench. He
said he had to weigh various
factors, including the publics
safety and Lewis disabilities,
in deciding on an appropriate
This will keep him off the
streets for a very long time,
he said.
Lewis has long maintained
he was at home, several blocks
away, when the re started.
His attorneys have said that
there was no drug debt and
that he passed two polygraph
But after the sentencing,
U.S. Attorney Steven Dettel-
bach called Lewis a coward
in the night.
Nothing can ever erase the
pain this defendant caused,
he said.
Cleveland re Battalion
Chief Patrick Mangan stood
in the middle of the courtroom
and gave a victims state-
ment, graphically describing
what confronted him and his
colleagues when they rushed
into the home hoping to save
lives. The images, he said, still
haunt him.
Theres no answer on this
Earth for what happened that
night, he said.
Rosalind Golden, whose
13-year-old grandson, Miles
Cockeld, was killed in the
re, looked at Lewis and told
him he had deprived the world
of a wonderful person.
I dont mean to cry every

Man gets 35 years for fatal
Ohio sleepover re
(From page A1)
He said the rst signs of his cancer was that
he was frequenting the bathroom more and more.
Id get a cup of coffee and begin driving, he
explained. No sooner than I got to the next place I
could stop, I had to make a trip into the bathroom.
After a biopsy which showed no cancer
cells in the outer shell of the prostate Dave
was referred to a surgeon in Columbus who
gave him his options.
Implanted radiation pellets would have
eliminated any surgical procedures because
of scar tissue, he said. The other option was
removal. The surgeon called it take it out and
sit it on the shelf.
The other option was to wait and see. Dave
decided he was not messing around with the
disease and opted for removal which was slat-
ed for January 3, 2001.
After they removed my prostate, they
tested it and found cancer cells, he said. The
only side effect was some elevated inconti-
nence due to the surgery.
Dave said he had lifting limitations after
the surgery because of the stitches from his
naval to the pubic area and he had to use a
leg catheter for a week. To help with the in-
continence problem, he said he had a collagen
procedure to help with the control issues.
Dave said it is very important to have the
screening for PSA every year so men have a
gauge from year to year what their numbers are.

Martinezs home run came in the eighth
off John Axford.
The Tigers took a 5-0 lead into the
bottom of the eighth, but Asdrubal Ca-
brera hit a three-run homer and Carlos
Santana had a solo shot off Ian Krol.
Joba Chamberlain retired the nal hitter
of the inning and then Nathan struck out
Michael Bourn with a runner on to end
the game.
Victor Martinez, who played for the
Indians from 2002-09, is hitting .366 (70
for 191) with eight homers and 44 RBIs
in 52 career games against his former
team. Detroits designated hitter also
continued his mastery over Kluber. Hes
batting .471 (8 for 17) with two homers
lifetime against the right-hander.
J.D. Martinez was 3 for 4, extending
his hitting streak to 10 games during
which hes batting .447 (17 for 38) with
four homers.
The Tigers returned to Progressive
Field for the rst time since they were
swept in a three-game series last month.
Detroit was 27-12 and held a seven-game
lead in the AL Central, but suffered two
walk-off losses, including a balk that
scored the winning run in the 13th inning
in the series nale.
The sweep began a 10-20 tailspin
which dropped the Tigers out of rst
place for the rst time his season.
Victor Martinez belted Klubers rst
pitch deep into the seats in right eld for
his 18th homer. The Indians walked him
intentionally in the eighth, but J.D. Mar-
tinez ruined that strategy with his sev-
enth home run.
Porcello, who is 9-3 lifetime against
Cleveland, won for the rst time since
May 29 and for the second time in his last
six starts. He was 7-1 with a 2.91 ERA in
his rst eight starts, but went 1-3 with a
6.00 ERA in the next ve.
Porcello allowed six hits, struck out
three and walked one.
Indians left elder Michael Brantley
singled as a pinch-hitter with two outs in
the ninth, his rst appearance since sus-
taining a concussion Monday.
Porcello is 4-0 with a 1.47 ERA in ve
starts against Cleveland since 2013.
Kluber hasnt won since May 30 after
recording victories in four straight deci-
sions. He gave up eight hits, struck out six
and walked one.
Ian Kinsler had an RBI double in the
Tigers right elder Torii Hunter
missed his fourth straight game with a
strained right hamstring.
The crowd of 33,545 was the second-
largest at Progressive Field this season,
topped only by the home opener.
NOTES: The Indians will induct
Omar Vizquel into their Hall of Fame be-
fore Saturday nights game. He played for
Cleveland from 1994-2004, won 11 Gold
Gloves as a shortstop and nished his ca-
reer with 2,877 hits. Im very honored,
said Vizquel, the rst base and ineld
coach for the Tigers. Playing here was
the highlight of my career. Tigers C
Alex Avila strongly disputed an Internet
report that he is tipping pitches by tap-
ping his glove. Ive heard some crazy
things, but that takes the cake, he said. I
think people are just searching for some-
thing. The Indians recalled RHP Vin-
nie Pestano from Triple-A Columbus and
optioned RHP Zach McAllister there.
Tigers RHP Justin Verlander (6-7) takes
on RHP Trevor Bauer (2-3) on Saturday.
Verlander is 2-5 with a 7.83 ERA in his
last seven starts.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) The World Cup of surprises is
turning into a sweet samba party for teams from the Americas.
Having already stunned one former world champion, little
Costa Rica shocked another on Friday and sent a third one
home. Then the French exploded with ve goals against their
Swiss neighbors.
The story so far: Two European powers Spain and Eng-
land are out of contention after just two games. European
teams have played eight teams from the Americas and won just
twice. The nine teams from Africa, Asia and Oceania have
contrived to win just one game between them.
But for teams from the Americas, their record as of Fri-
day against nations from other regions: played 12, lost just two.
Ole! In short, the new world is embarrassing the old one.
None of the previous seven World Cups in the Americas
were won by teams outside Latin America. On current evi-
dence, this one looks increasingly unlikely to be the exception.
Although the score was just 1-0, Costa Rica was an easy
winner Friday over four-time champion Italy in the coastal city
of Recife. Having also won its rst match, 3-1, against two-
time winner Uruguay, Costa Rica is now guaranteed a spot in
the knockout stage.
Costa Ricas win also killed off Englands faint hopes of
advancing. Italy and Uruguay will play each other on Tuesday
to determine which of them joins Costa Rica in advancing from
Group D and which will join 1966 champion England and 2010
winner Spain in phoning their travel agents.
Costa Rica, with just 5 million people, was seen as the easy
opponent in the group the rst ever with three former world
champions. Instead, the Ticos have looked the hungriest team
of the four, and are already preparing for a knockout game.
The only two European nations to have beaten Americas
teams so far in Brazil are France and Switzerland, which over-
came Honduras and Ecuador, respectively, in their rst Group
E matches. On Friday, France and Switzerland played each
other in Salvador, also on the coast. The French were rampant
winners, 5-2, all but guaranteeing they, too, will advance to the
last 16 for only the second time since they won the title in 1998.
Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld tipped France to go
very far in this tournament after it shredded his teams de-
fenses and reputation as tough to break down. Five different
players scored for France.
If it stays on top of Group E, it will likely face Iran, Nigeria
or Bosnia in last 16. They should all be manageable opponents
for the talented French who are rebuilding their reputation ru-
ined by a training ground strike by players at the last World
Cup. Friday marked the fourth anniversary of that debacle in
South Africa.
Attackers Olivier Giroud and Karim Benzema each scored
one goal and created another against the Swiss. Benzema went
15 games without scoring for France in 2012-2013. He now has
three goals in Brazil.
Karim is conrming that hes in very, very good form.
Hes in great shape athletically, said France coach Didier De-
schamps. Having such an efcient player is very important in
a competition like this.
World Cup smiles on Americas

Feeling rusty but ready
to play again, Tiger Woods
said Friday he would return
to competition next week at
Congressional in the Quicken
Loans National.
Woods last played on
March 9 at Doral, where he
dealt with pain in his lower
back and closed with a 78 for
his highest nal-round score
on the PGA Tour. He had back
surgery March 31, forcing him
to miss the Masters for the
rst time. He also missed the
U.S. Open last week at Pine-
hurst No. 2.
The announcement on his
Facebook page delivered a jolt
of good news to golf. Woods
has been the games biggest
draw since he turned pro in
1996, and with limited infor-
mation about his recovery,
speculation was starting to
build that he might not make
it to any majors this year.
After a lot of therapy, I
have recovered well and will
be supporting my founda-
tion next week at the Quicken
Loans National, Woods said
on Facebook. Ive just started
to hit full shots, but its time
to take the next step. I will be
a bit rusty, but I want to play
myself back into competitive
shape. Excited for the chal-
lenge ahead.
This is the rst year for a
new title sponsor at the PGA
Tour event that donates its
charity money to the Tiger
Woods Foundation, and the
tournament earlier this year
secured an agreement to re-
turn to Congressional every
other year through 2020.
Woods on Thursday an-
nounced that he signed a new
endorsement deal with Mus-
clePharm, which will display
its logo on his golf bag.
He has been the face of
golf for the last 15, 20 years,
and golf is a better sport and a
better place with Tiger Woods
in it, two-time major cham-
pion Rory McIlroy said last
week at the U.S. Open. So
hopefully, he has a speedy
recovery and he gets back
on the course soon, because
any tournament where Tiger
Woods is a factor, he creates
a big buzz.
This is the second-longest
break Woods has taken from
golf because of injury. He
missed the second half of the
2008 season when he had re-
constructive surgery on his
left knee just a week after
winning the U.S. Open for his
14th major.
Even though he spent the
offseason working on his
body, there were signs ear-
ly that something might be
He missed the 54-hole cut
at Torrey Pines, where he was
the defending champion and
an eight-time winner at one
of his favorite courses. He had
his worst nish ever at Dubai
when he tied for 41st. Then, he
withdrew in the nal round of
the Honda Classic because of
back spasms, and despite be-
ing in the penultimate group at
Doral, he struggled badly with
his back on the nal day after
taking a swing from an awk-
ward stance outside a bunker.
Woods had microdiscec-
tomy surgery a week before
the Masters, and he has said in
rare appearances that he did
not know how long it would
take to properly heal. His
agent, Mark Steinberg at Ex-
cel Sports Management, said
earlier this week that Woods
was making enough progress
to extend his swing.
Even so, playing the
Quicken Loans National was
thought to be too soon.
It couldnt come soon
enough for the tournament.

CINCINNATI (AP) Edwin Encarnacion
hit two three-run homers Friday night, and
the Toronto Blue Jays pulled off the second-
biggest comeback in franchise history, rallying
from an early eight-run decit to a 14-9 victory
over the Cincinnati Reds.
Toronto hit four homers during its come-
back, including the two by the major leagues
home run leader. Encarnacion started the
comeback by connecting in the third inning
off Mat Latos and nished it with his 23rd
homer off Sam LeCure during a ve-run ninth
Brett Lawrie and Juan Francisco also hom-
ered for Toronto, which piled up 16 hits and
nine walks.
The eight-run decit was the second-big-
gest overcome in franchise history. Toronto
overcame a 10-run decit to beat Boston 13-11
in 12 innings in 1989.
With the score tied at 9, Aroldis Chapman
(0-2) came on to pitch the ninth and walked
leadoff hitter Colby Rasmus. Erik Kratz dou-
bled off the wall in left eld to break the tie,
then came around on Melky Cabreras single.
Chapman was replaced after getting only
two outs, and Encarnacion completed the big
comeback and his sixth multihomer game of
the season.
Dustin McGowan (4-2) pitched a perfect
eighth. Casey Janssen retired the three batters
he faced in the ninth for his 13th save in 15
The comeback boosted the Blue Jays out
of a recent funk. They were swept for the rst
time this season at Yankee Stadium and had
dropped nine of their last 12.
The Reds pitching meltdown wasted a
chance to get back to .500 for the fourth time
this season. Cincinnati has yet to have a win-
ning record.
It was the rst time the Reds blew an eight-
run lead and lost since May 20, 2010, at Atlan-
ta, a 10-9 defeat. The Reds gave up a season-
high nine walks and 15 hits.
The Blue Jays called up Liam Hendriks to
start in place of R.A. Dickey, getting two extra
days to rest a sore groin. The Reds knocked
him out in the second inning while sending 11
batters to the plate for an 8-0 lead, their biggest
inning of the season.
Devin Mesoraco started the rally with a
two-run homer and Jay Bruce nished it with
a two-run shot. Bruce also singled as the Reds
piled up seven hits and a walk.
Latos made his second start since return-
ing from the disabled list and wasnt sharp. He
gave up nine hits, three walks and Encarna-
cions three-run homer during 5 2-3 innings.
Reliever Jumbo Diaz made his major league
debut in the seventh and gave up Lawries solo
homer and Franciscos two-run shot, cutting
it to 9-8. Toronto then tied it in the eighth on
Dioner Navarros double off Jonathan Broxton.
NOTES: LHP J.A. Happ (6-3) faces RHP
Mike Leake (4-6) on Saturday. Leake lost his
only other career start against the Blue Jays in
2011. The Blue Jays optioned RHP Steve
Delabar to Triple-A Buffalo to open a spot
for Hendriks. Encarnacion has 21 homers
during 42 games since May 6, the most in the
majors over that span. Hendriks fell to 3-14
in 31 career starts and two relief appearances.
The Reds optioned LHP Tony Cingrani to
Triple-A Louisville and called up Diaz. They
also moved LHP Sean Marshall to the 60-day
DL. Marshall will have shoulder surgery on

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) Marcos Am-
brose wants nothing more than to break Hen-
drick Motorsports four-race winning streak
and his best shot comes on the road course at
Sonoma Raceway this weekend.
A win Sunday could earn the Australian
his rst berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup
championship and solidify his future at Rich-
ard Petty Motorsports. Ambroses current deal
with the organization is up at the end of the
Im in a renewal year with Richard Petty
for 2015, Ambrose said. Im not really think-
ing about myself here. I just want the best for
RPM. They have decisions to make I want
to make sure that RPM are on the right path
and Im going to do everything I can to make
sure I help them do that.
Ambrose is in his fourth season driving
for the Petty organization, and his two career
Sprint Cup victories are with the team. Both of
his wins were on the road course at Watkins
Hes still looking for his rst victory at So-
noma, where Ambrose is always considered
one of the favorites but hasnt managed to grab
the checkered ag. Ambrose has ve nishes
of eighth or better in six career starts at the
picturesque 1.99-mile track.
We know that the race here this weekend
and in Watkins Glen, the two road races, are
our best chance to win a race this year, he
said. That will automatically lock us into the
Chase. Clearly theres a lot to race for at these
two tracks for us. Weve put a lot of energy and
effort into Sonoma.
Ambrose is 23rd in the Sprint Cup stand-
ings, and there are 11 races remaining to set
the Chase eld. To be one of the 16 drivers,
hell likely need the berth that comes with a
regular-season victory.
But standing in his way Sunday is the Hen-
drick Motorsports juggernaut, which has been
unstoppable since Jimmie Johnsons win at
Charlotte on May 25. Since that race, Johnson
has won three times and teammate Dale Earn-
hardt Jr. won once. Back it up to Jeff Gordons
win at Kansas and teams powered by Hendrick
engines have won the last six races, including
Jamie McMurrays All-Star race victory.
The all-time record for consecutive car
owner victories is 16 by Carl Kiekhaefer in
1956. The Hendrick organization won six con-
secutive races in 2007 to set the modern era
record and its best bet for a tie could be Gor-
don, who has nine career wins on road courses.
Gordon is proud of his success rate at So-
noma, where hes the all-time leader with ve
wins. Gordon hasnt nished lower than ninth
at Sonoma since his 2006 victory, a span of
eight consecutive top-10 nishes.
Weve worked hard as a team to be com-
petitive on road courses and weve had a lot of
success at Sonoma. But its not an easy track to
conquer, said Gordon, who grew up in nearby
Ambrose, considered one of the best road
course racers in NASCAR, still likes his

CLEVELAND (AP) David Blatt went overseas to chase
his basketball dreams. Hes coming back to fulll them.
One of Europes top coaches, Blatt was hired Friday by the
Cavaliers, who ended a sweeping, 39-day search with an out-
of-the-box selection they hope changes their fortunes.
American-born, Princeton-schooled and considered one of
the games brightest offensive minds, the 55-year-old Blatt has
long been interested in coaching in the NBA and the Cavs will
give him his rst shot.
The club signed him to a reported three-year deal that in-
cludes a team option for a fourth year. Cleveland contacted
high-prole college coaches and interviewed both retreaded
head coaches and on-the-rise assistants before zeroing in and
landing Blatt, who won several European titles while coaching
in Israel and guided Russia to a bronze medal at the London
Olympics two years ago.
David Blatt is going to bring some of the most innovative
approaches found in professional basketball anywhere on the
globe, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said. Time and time again,
from Russia to Israel and several other prominent head coach-
ing jobs in between, David has done one thing: win. He is not
only an innovator, well-trained and focused on both sides of the
court, but he is always learning and always teaching.
Whether you are a top draft pick just entering the league,
or a seasoned NBA veteran, Coach Blatt is going to take your
game and the game of the team you are playing for to a new and
higher level. Thats just who the man is and we are proud to call
him our new head coach.
Blatt will be introduced by the team Wednesday, one day
before the club picks rst in this years NBA draft.
Clevelands third coach in three years, Blatt replaces Mike
Brown, who was red for the second time on May 12, a
few weeks after the Cavs nished 33-49 and missed the play-
offs for the fourth straight season. Blatt was not believed to be
on Clevelands radar early in its search, but that changed when
he resigned at Maccabi Tel Aviv to pursue an NBA gig.
Blatt also was coveted as an assistant by Golden State and
Minnesota, but the Cavs made him the rst European coach to
make the jump to the NBA.
David is a great basketball coach and a special person,
said Cavs general manager David Grifn. His abilities to
communicate, to build relationships with his players and to fos-
ter winning environments at several stops throughout Europe

WASHINGTON (AP) Deant before skeptical Repub-
licans, the head of the IRS refused to apologize Friday for
lost emails that might shed light on the tax agencys target-
ing of tea party and other groups before the 2010 and 2012
Instead, Commissioner John Koskinen accused the chair-
man of a powerful House committee of misleading the pub-
lic by making false statements based on incomplete informa-
The contentious back-and-forth didnt end there. Later in
the hearing, Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republicans vice presiden-
tial candidate two years ago, told Koskinen bluntly that no-
body believes you.
I have a long career. Thats the rst time anybody has
said they do not believe me, said Koskinen, who came out
of retirement in December to take over the IRS. Previously,
he served in other positions under Presidents Bill Clinton and
George W. Bush.
The hearing showed that emotions are running hotter than
ever in the dispute over the IRS and political fundraising.
Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, chairman of the Ways and
Means Committee, asked Koskinen to testify a week after
the IRS disclosed that it had lost an untold number of emails
to and from Lois Lerner. Lerner headed the division that pro-
cesses applications for tax-exempt status during a time when,
the IRS has acknowledged, agents improperly scrutinized
applications from tea party and other conservative groups.
Camp was clearly expecting Koskinen to be more con-
What I didnt hear in that was an apology to this commit-
tee, Camp said after Koskinens opening statement.
I dont think an apology is owed, replied Koskinen.
The IRS commissioner also dismissed Camps call for a
special prosecutor to investigate, saying it would be a monu-
mental waste of taxpayer funds.
Later, White House spokesman Josh Earnest was equally
dismissive. Im not sure that theres a whole lot more to be
discovered here, Earnest said.
The IRS says it lost Lerners emails when her computer
crashed in June 2011. At the time, technicians went to ex-
traordinary means to recover them, even sending Lerners
hard drive to agencys forensic lab, Koskinen said. But to no
In 2011, the IRS had a policy of backing up emails on
computer tapes, but the tapes were recycled every six months,
Koskinen said. He said Lerners hard drive was recycled and
presumably destroyed.

percent of senior executives at the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs got performance
bonuses last year despite widespread treat-
ment delays and preventable deaths at VA
hospitals and clinics, a top ofcial said
More than 350 VA executives were
paid a total of $2.7 million in bonuses last
year, said Gina Farrisee, assistant VA sec-
retary for human resources and adminis-
tration. That amount is down from about
$3.4 million in bonuses paid in 2012, Far-
risee said.
The totals do not include tens of mil-
lions of dollars in bonuses awarded to doc-
tors, dentists and other medical providers
throughout the VAs nearly 900 hospitals
and clinics.
Workers at the Phoenix VA Health
Care System where ofcials have con-
rmed dozens of patients died while await-
ing treatment received about $3.9 mil-
lion in bonuses last year, newly released
records show. The merit-based bonuses
were doled out to about 650 employees,
including doctors, nurses, administrators,
secretaries and cleaning staff.
Farrisee defended the bonus system,
telling the House Veterans Affairs Com-
mittee that the VA needs to pay bonuses
to keep executives who are paid up to
$181,000 per year.
We are competing in tough labor
markets for skilled personnel, Farrisee
said Friday. To remain competitive in re-
cruiting and retaining the best personnel to
serve our veterans, we must rely on tools
such as incentives and awards that recog-
nize superior performance.

an election-year challenge to
President Barack Obama, the
Republican-led House on Fri-
day overwhelmingly approved
a $570 billion defense bill that
halts any Guantanamo transfers
for a year amid the furor over
the American-for-Taliban swap
and pulls back on government
The vote was 340-73 for the
measure that provides money
for military operations in Iraq
and Afghanistan, personnel,
ships and aircraft. An unusual
coalition of libertarian Repub-
licans and liberal Democrats
pushed through new limits on
National Security Agency sur-
veillance as the year-old rev-
elations of bulk collection of
millions of Americans phone
records still roil the debate of
security versus privacy.
Weeks after the prisoner
exchange, Republicans railed
against Obamas decision to
trade ve Taliban leaders who
had been held at the U.S. prison
at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for
more than a decade for Sgt.
Bowe Bergdahl, a captive for
ve years in Afghanistan. The
Taliban were transferred to Qa-
tar, where they must remain for
a year.
Republicans said Obama
broke the law by failing to no-
tify Congress at least 30 days
before the swap and increased
the terrorism risk to the United
States with the exchange.
Obama has defended the
deal to spare Bergdahl, with of-
cials saying the government
needed to move expeditiously
due to his failing health. The ad-
ministration has tried to reduce
the population at Guantanamo,
where 149 are being held.

NEW YORK (AP) The U.S. stock market is back to set-
ting records.
After treading water for most of March and April, stocks
are nudging deeper into record territory and are closing in on
milestones with lots of zeros attached to them. The Dow Jones
industrial average is within 53 points of 17,000 while the Stan-
dard & Poors 500 is just shy of 2,000 after rising 6 percent
this year.
A harsh winter in the U.S. that hobbled growth made in-
vestors cautious. There were also worries about the conict
in Ukraine and slowing growth in China, the worlds second-
biggest economy.
But now the economy appears to be on track again, and in-
vestors are rediscovering their appetite for stocks.
While 17,000 would be the rst 1,000-point marker crested
this year, the Dow had two in 2013. It closed above 15,000 for
the rst time on May 7, then above 16,000 on Nov. 21, during a
year when the blue-chip index rocketed 27 percent.
That double milestone was a long time coming, though. The
Dow had nished above 14,000 six years earlier, in July 2007,
just before the Great Recession.

fort by deep-pocketed philan-
thropists to save the bankrupt
city of Detroits art treasures
began with a chance meeting
last year and culminated Fri-
day when Michigan Gov. Rick
Snyder signed a bill authorizing
millions in state help.
But all parties excited about
the bill signing know that work
could be for naught if the citys
pensioners and workers, who
are nearing a deadline for a
historic vote on Detroits plan
to get out of bankruptcy, re-
ject what has been dubbed the
Grand Bargain.
It is really not in our hands,
said Rip Rapson, president of
the Kresge Foundation, which
has pledged $100 million to-
ward the plan. We fully under-
stand that the pensioners have
to make very hard decisions
as to whether this is something
they can support.
The states contribution of
$195 million, along with $366
million from foundations and
a $100 million pledge from
the Detroit Institute of Arts,
would replace hundreds of
millions being cut from re-
tiree pensions, while stop-
ping bond insurers and other
creditors from forcing the
sell-off of city-owned art such
as Van Goghs Self Portrait.
The money would come over
20 years, placing the value at
about $816 million.
As part of the deal, the art-
work will go into a charitable
Retirees and city workers
have until July 11 to vote on
the proposal, which is included
in state-appointed emergency
manager Kevyn Orrs plan for
Detroits restructuring. The city
led for the largest municipal
bankruptcy in history last sum-
mer, and a trial on the restruc-
turing is set for August. Orr has
said he hopes to have Detroit
out of bankruptcy by the end of
this summer.
This huge amount of re-
sources is not there if they vote
no, and theyre much worse off
nancially, Snyder said Friday.
By voting yes, they are go-
ing to be taking sacrices, but
hopefully theyve been reduced
dramatically from what they
otherwise would have been,
and its something that will al-
low the city to come back faster
and better.
Detroit Grand Bargain
vote key to bankruptcy end
year after the Supreme Court
struck down a law barring fed-
eral recognition of gay marriag-
es, the Obama administration
granted an array of new benets
Friday to same-sex couples, in-
cluding those who live in states
where gay marriage is against
the law.
The new measures range
from Social Security and vet-
erans benets to work leave
for caring for sick spouses.
They are part of President
Barack Obamas efforts to ex-
pand whatever protections he
can offer to gays and lesbians
even though more than half of
the states dont recognize gay
marriage. That effort has been
confounded by laws that say
some benets should be con-
ferred only to couples whose
marriages are recognized by
the states where they live,
rather than the states where
they were married.
Aiming to circumvent that
issue, the Veterans Affairs De-
partment will start letting gay
people who tell the government
they are married to a veteran to
be buried alongside them in a
national cemetery, drawing on
the VAs authority to waive the
usual marriage requirement.

Dear Heloise: My sons
baseball caps get lthy with
sweat and dirt. Do you have
hints on how to clean the caps
while keeping their shape?
Sandra L. in Oklahoma
As long as the caps are
washable, and not old or valu-
able, there are a couple of
things to try. Try hand-wash-
ing the caps using a gentle
soap (laundry detergent or
shampoo) and water. Scrub
the stains gently, inside and
out, with a toothbrush. Under
running water, rinse the caps,
then shake out the water or pat
the caps with a towel. Hang to
dry, then place on an upside-
down bowl or canister to keep
its shape.
Another Heloise hint is to
use the dishwasher. Attach the
caps with clothespins to the
TOP rack of the dishwasher.
After the rinse cycle, take out
the caps to air-dry. Heloise

Dear Heloise: One of our
much-loved Labs fell and hurt
her leg. The leg has healed, but
she still licks it! We tried sev-
eral collars on her, but shes
so smart that she nds ways
to get out of the collars. There
is a spot where she wont let
the hair grow back, and this is
driving us crazy. Do you hap-
pen to know of a home remedy
that we can safely put on her
leg that might stop her from
licking? A Yellow Lab
Mom, via email
I dont know if there is any-
thing topically you can put on
her to stop the licking, but I do
have a suggestion: Have you
tried putting a sock or some-
thing like that over the spot?
The spot will be protected and
let the hair grow back, and you
can work on breaking the lick-
ing habit. I think it would be
safer to put something topical
on the sock to deter the lick-
ing instead of on her actual
leg. Talk to your veterinarian
about this. Heloise
Dear Heloise: When I read
your column about rooms be-
ing too bright to sleep and
you said to check for light-
emitting things, I had to share
what I do. I bought a square of
black felt. I cut it to the size I
needed and covered my VCR
clock, light on the answering
machine, etc. It makes a world
of difference in the room.
Roberta S., Judsonia, Ark.
Dear Heloise: I have found
another use for aluminum
foil. Whenever my scissors
need a quick sharpening, I
cut through several layers of
aluminum foil, and they work
like new! Hope this helps your

DEAR ABBY: Barney and I are in our
40s and have been married two years. Barney
is a neatnik. His nighttime ritual of cleaning
up before bed takes an hour or more. Before
we can be intimate, this ritual must be per-
formed, which rules out anything in the af-
ternoon or thats
Barney is
also a night owl.
Sometimes he
goes straight
from the shower
to the Internet
or reading, ig-
noring sex alto-
gether, even if
we planned and
talked about it while getting ready to clean up
for the night. I have fallen asleep many nights
waiting for him, only to awaken hours later
and see hes still not beside me. When we dis-
cuss it later, he says its a selsh habit he got
away with in his last marriage. He enjoys sex
but becomes easily distracted.
Should we seek counseling for this or try
something else? Barney displays all the signs
of ADD and has since his childhood days.
DEAR FRUSTRATED: By all means seek
counseling. The ritual you described could
be a symptom of a disorder, or your husband
may have a very weak sex drive. However, one
thing is clear: If Barney isnt in bed with you,
its because hed rather be elsewhere. For your
sake, the sooner you get some straight answers
the better youll be. His comment about get-
ting away with it tells me he knows what hes
doing wasnt fair to his last wife, and it isnt
fair to you.

DEAR ABBY: For the last 10 years, my
friends and I have gotten together on a fairly
regular basis. We always bring potluck to
share. While Marcia and I were assembling
a meal, Cindy would contribute a bag of
chips. We nally told her we thought the of-
ferings were unequal, so she shaped up. We
recently celebrated my birthday at my house,
and Cindy surprised me with a beautiful
blueberry crumble cake (her specialty). I was
delighted and told her I had been craving that
particular treat. As the afternoon wore on, I
asked if we should bring out the dessert, but
she said she wanted to wait a while. A half-
hour later, she announced she had to leave and
wanted to take the cake with her. (We often
take leftovers home, but her dessert hadnt
even made it to the table.) When I said, But
we have no other dessert! she said she had
company coming and needed to take it with
her. Then she put it in the container she had
brought it in and left.
Cindy is a close friend, and Marcia and I
have put up with some of her quirks. But Im
thinking about confronting her about this
latest gaffe because Im afraid if I dont, my
resentment will continue to build and our
friendship will crumble. Am I being petty?
DEAR D.D.L.: Petty? I dont think so. What
she did took the cake and Im not talking
about pastry. I dont know what qualities you
look for in a close friend, but Cindy appears to
be unusually self-centered. What she said was
not only rude, but showed a distinct lack of
empathy for your feelings. By all means, clear
the air, but dont count on Cindy to change. In
fact, dont count on her for anything.

By Associated Designs
While the Edgewoods brick
exterior is clearly colonial, its interi-
or is fully contemporary. Bookend
chimneys bracket a totally sym-
metrical central section complete
with a stately columned portico,
keystone accented windows, and a
hipped roof with eyebrow-arched
dormers. The porticos copper roof
provides a modern touch, and the
side extensions break with tradition
by varying in size.
Entering, you step into a regal
two-story foyer where a stairway
wraps around the right side. On the
left, slender columns flank the wide
opening to a living room with a
brick fireplace and den access. On
the right, double
doors open into a
large dining room.
Built-in hutches fill
the alcoves on both
sides of the second
A spacious, well
appointed kitchen is
at the homes core.
Counters and cup-
boards line the walls,
and the work island
provides additional
work and storage space. The high
capacity stove boasts six burners.
From the sink, you can gaze past
the raised conversation bar into the
richly windowed nook and beyond.
Mirror image sliders open onto par-
tially covered patios on two sides.
Doors or short passageways link the
kitchen to the family room, dining
room, and office. A large utility
room and three-car garage are just
a few steps further.
The high-ceilinged family room
is as bright and spacious as they
come. Its bowed bay windows are
crowned by a row of transoms. Slen-
der windows stand sentinel on both
sides of the fireplace, and a home
entertainment center fills one wall.
Five bedrooms are upstairs, plus
a bonus room and four bathrooms. A
fourth fireplace warms the Edge-
woods luxury owners suite, which
has a huge walk-in closet and an
elegant bathroom with
a large soaking tub.

Campus Notes
Making the moves
Shad Robeson, owner of 540 Martial Arts,
surprised the Calvary Preschool boys and girls
with his abilities. Robeson had the boys and girls
warm up before trying some of the moves. He
showed students the stances and what to say
when nished. Each one had the opportunity
to hit or kick the bag. Some opted out. Thanks,
Shad, for sharing with the boys and girls. To
enroll a child for the fall, go to www.calvaryelife.
org and pull up forms under preschool, or call
(567) 259-3103. Tours of the school are available.
Openings are still available for threes, fours
