COLUMBUS — Two cen-tral Ohio teens playing a prankare accused of causing a fataltraffic crash by concealing astop sign with several layersof plastic wrap and petroleum jelly, a sheriff said Thursday.Seth Stonerock, 19,of Stoutsville and DerekGreenlee, 18, of Circlevillepleaded not guilty to felonyinvoluntary manslaugh-ter charges Thursday inCircleville Municipal Court,said Pickaway County Sheriff Dwight Radcliff. They alsoare charged with tamperingwith a traffic control device, aminor misdemeanor.“Why they did such astupid trick I don’t know,”Radcliff said, noting that pho-tos from the crash show a“massive amount” of plasticon the sign.“It’s certainly not the kindthat you can hold up and lookthrough,” he said.Radcliff said the teens hadwrapped a girl’s car in plasticwrap before heading on Aug.17 to a stop sign near theirhomes and concealing all buta small part of the “P.” About4:45 p.m. that day, JeanneShea drove through the stopsign, colliding with a vehiclecrossing an intersecting road.Her 85-year-old sister,Mary Spangler of Circleville,was a passenger in the car.Spangler was killed. Shea,a Circleville woman whoturned 81 the following day,was in critical condition at aColumbus hospital, the sheriff said.“We’ve had many, manypeople call in and report theincident, and they see it, andwhy didn’t they stop and pullit off?” Radcliff said. “But itdidn’t happen that way.”Both teens are free on$25,000 bond and face pretrialhearings Sept. 2Greenlee’s attorney, JamesKingsley, said there is moreinformation that hasn’t yetcome out.“All tragedies are notalways a crime,” he said.A message left forStonerock’s lawyer was notimmediately returned.Radcliff said investigatorsdiscovered that a photo of thegirl’s car had been posted ona Facebook page and theytracked down the purchase of five boxes of plastic wrap at alocal Wal-Mart. He said theywere helped by store surveil-lance video and a signatureused for the purchase.The sheriff noted that thecrash is reminiscent of onein northwest Ohio in 2005,when five teens were accusedof stealing a deer decoy andplacing it on a Hardin Countycountry road as a prank, caus-ing a crash that seriouslyinjured two other teens.Four of the teens were sen-tenced to 60 days in juveniledetention, and one to 90 days.

CUPERTINO, Calif. —Apple headquarters is stillstanding in this leafy SiliconValley suburb even afterSteve Jobs’ industry-rattlingannouncement that he wasresigning as chief executiveof the company he co-foundedin a garage more than threedecades ago.That news comes as littlesurprise in the Valley, wherefew doubted Thursday thatdespite the loss of its legendaryleader Apple would continueto succeed — at least for thenext few years.“I don’t think in the shortterm it will suffer,” said EthanSalter, 35, an engineering con-sultant who had stopped inat a Starbucks just down theroad from the Mountain Viewheadquarters of Google Inc., amajor Apple competitor. “Inthe long term, things changereally quickly around here.”Tech workers interviewedby The Associated Press saidthey were not shocked to hearWednesday that Jobs was step-ping down. His health troubles,which have included pancreat-ic cancer and a liver transplant,are well known.Yet in a place where thelightning speed of successis matched perhaps only bythe careening pace of failure,some wondered whether Jobs’departure could ultimately leadto a turn in its fortunes.Apple itself floundered fora decade after Jobs left thecompany, and its rise to its cur-rent success did not begin untilhe returned in the late 1990s,cementing his image as the keyto the company’s success.“Last time he left Apple,it wasn’t so pretty,” saidAaron Wegner, 31, a comput-er programmer at LawrenceLivermore National Lab inSilicon Valley for the day.“I think he’s a driving forcebehind what their products endup physically looking like.”Jobs’ reputation as a micro-manager of Apple’s designprocess has both helped andhindered the company. Thecompany’s string of successesover the past decade has con-vinced many consumers andinvestors that with Jobs incharge the company couldn’tfail. The flip side of that con-fidence is an anxiety aboutwhether the company will fal-ter without him.Mi Young, 43, a businessoperations manager at a smallcomputer networking companyin Santa Clara, said she doubtsJobs would have stepped downwithout a plan in place.Many of the ideas to comeout of Apple in the next fiveyears she believes will stillbear Jobs’ stamp. “Beyondthat, I don’t know who will beable to fill those shoes.”Part of the concern amongApple fans hinges on howheavily the company itself hasrelied on Jobs’ cult of person-ality to market its innovativeproducts.His onstage appearances tounveil Apple’s newest designsdraw thousands of adoring fansand hundreds of journalistswho broadcast his every wordaround the globe.“There’s this identificationof the company with the man,”said Alex Bochannek, cura-tor at the Computer HistoryMuseum in Mountain View.That kind of identification isnot unique to Apple in the his-tory of computer companiesand leads to the assumptionthat these large, complex orga-nizations are run singlehand-edly, he said.But Jobs has clearly sur-rounded himself with smartpeople, Bochannek said, suchas lead designer Jonathan Ive,best known to the public as thestylish Brit who extolls Apple’slatest products in the company’sonline marketing videos.“I don’t think anyone thinksApple is going away tomor-row,” he said. At the same time,he said, “ultimately it’s the lead-er who creates a culture.”While Apple’s focus onattractive design and ease of use has fostered a culture of innovation, heavy secrecy isalso a cornerstone of its opera-tions.
