Library to be featured in quarterly
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — The Delphos Public Library will be featured in an upcoming Ohio Public Libraries Quarterly, according to Library Director Kelly Rist. Rist told trustees Monday representatives from the state library visited the Delphos facility on July 23 and liked what they saw. “We discussed the library programs we offer and the activities of civic organizations that are hosted at the library or the First Edition Building,” she said. “They were impressed by the diversity of what goes on here.” The Green Thumb Garden Club meets monthly in the First Edition Building and the Delphos Area Art Guild also held multiple programs there this past year. Rist also gave an update on the leak in the library’s foundation in the old section of the building. “I had a contractor come in and look at it and he said it could be quite extensive,” she said. “That part of the foundation is right by a gas line and where the power comes into the building. A local contractor said we’d have to look at where the sewer lines are, too.” The leak is in the southwest corner of the boiler room. Rist reported she met with Allen County officials last week and the library will receive the same amount of Local Government Funds as in the past at 6 percent. She will meet with Van Wert County today. Fiscal Officer Janet Bonifas was not in attendance to give a firm number on the LGF allotment. Library maintenance man Norb Renner announced his desire to retire/rehire. His last day will be Aug. 31. A public hearing will be held at 3:45 p.m. Sept. 11 prior to the next board meeting. Don Suever will cover for the 60 days Renner is required to sit out. The library’s Summer Reading Program numbers are in. The program hosted 348 children and 85 adults. Rist said Children’s Librarian Denise Cressman will receive next year’s materials in October and the planning will begin. The library will co-host the Children’s Activity/Creativity Tent during Canal Days on Sept. 21. Rist said she will partner with the Delphos Area Art Guild and the library will host a science table to show how “science can be magic, too,” following this year’s event theme. See LIBRARY, page 10

STATE/LOCAL Ohio’s squirrel hunting season begins Sept. 1
Information submitted COLUMBUS — Ohio’s squirrel hunting season opens Sept. 1, when many hunters will go to the woods with the opportunity to take as many as six squirrels per day, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Ohio’s squirrel season is a longtime tradition for many hunters. Ample hunting opportunities are available for fox, gray, black and red squirrels. This is an excellent time to take a young person hunting, or scout for the upcoming deer and fall wild turkey hunting seasons. Legal hunting hours for squirrels are one half-hour before sunrise to sunset daily, and the season runs through Jan. 31, 2014. Squirrel season will be closed during the oneweek statewide deer gun season, Dec. 2-8. The eighth annual Squirrel Hunting Cooperator Survey conducted by the ODNR Division of Wildlife compared hunter results and nut crop ratings to provide an index of Ohio’s squirrel population status. The abundance of nut crops is a good indicator of squirrel populations for the following year. The statewide nut production ratings for the fall of 2012 was higher than 2011. All tree species, except beech, showed above average production in 2012. However, a cold winter in 2012-13 may have negatively impacted squirrel densities. The 2013-14 harvest may not equal the above-average harvests of the past two seasons, although a good harvest is still expected for this season. Primary fox squirrel range occurs in the agricultural landscapes in northeastern and western Ohio, whereas the primary gray squirrel range is in the extensively forested east-central, southeastern and south-central Ohio. Gray squirrels are more dependent on hard mast such as acorns and hickory nuts, and their abundance is closely tied to the mast crop of the previous fall. Fox squirrels are less dependent upon mast crop resources and are more likely to consume supplemental food in agricultural areas. Hunters who wish to participate in the Squirrel Hunting Cooperator Survey, designed to track trends in nut crops and squirrel populations across Ohio, should contact the Waterloo Wildlife Research Station, 360 E. State St., Athens, Ohio 45701, at 740-589-9930 for more information.
E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: I understand that there are many internships available at environmental organizations, some involving working outdoors, some year-round with expenses paid. Where do I find these? — Jason Baar, Los Angeles, CA Internships can provide professional experience and on-the-job training for individuals looking to enter the environmental field. There are numerous opportunities and the key is to know where to look. Many businesses, non-profits and governmental organizations offer internships that are environmentally focused and can range from office work in many different departments to working outdoors, some year-round and some short term. Compensation also varies significantly and can range from unpaid (but earning college credit) to salaried and/or all-expenses-paid. A good place to start is the Student Conservation Association (SCA), which places over 2,000 interns a year and focuses on expensepaid year-round internships, many of which are outdoors. They partner with public and private organizations along with federal agencies and prescreen applicants to create a national pool of candidates for organizations to select from to bring in for interviews. Internships through SCA can offer anywhere from $75$300 per week in living expenses, plus housing, travel and medical costs. In addition, an Americorps education award may be available to interns at the completion of their

The Environmental Careers Organization (ECO) is also a well known resource for finding internships for bachelors, masters and doctoral students and recent graduates. This program partners with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and through paid internships has turned out professionals in the environmental field for over 30 years. ECO selects 500 associates each year for 12-week to two-year internships. Sponsoring organizations offer internships in research and training programs in addition to office, laboratory and field work assignments. Associates earn between $400 and $800 per week and may also be compensated for relocation costs, housing, travel, and career development. A few other places to look are EcoEmploy and Internmatch.

Ohio schools districts brace for new report cards
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio schools, teachers and parents are bracing for anticipated downgrades as the state prepares for today’s release of new A-F report cards. The revamped system ranking buildings and districts sets new, often tougher performance criteria and replaces such labels as “Excellent” and “Continuous Improvement” with more familiar letter grades. The 2013 report cards will feature letter grades in the first nine graded performance measures, said Ohio Department of Education spokesman John Charlton. Districts and school buildings won’t be given overall grades under the new system until August 2015. Charlton said officials anticipate that many schools will see poorer grades initially in some areas as a result of the adjustment. The initial jolt is expected to subside as the system is fully phased in through 2015. The department plans to make the report cards available to the public on its website at 11 a.m. today. Damon Asbury, director of the Ohio School Boards Association, said the absence of an overall ranking may serve to free parents and educators to focus on the strengths and weaknesses of their schools under the new system. “In some respects not having an overall grade might help people look at the individual components more, to decide where it is we’re succeeding and where it is we should be doing better,” he said. A-F report card legislation that Ohio passed last year required developing a letter scale for school districts, school buildings, community schools, STEM schools and college preparatory boarding schools. Performance criteria included elementarygrade literacy, student academic performance, graduation rates, college readiness and a host of other characteristics. The letter grades replace the former fivetier rating system of categories: academic emergency, academic watch, continuous improvement, effective and excellent. The extended rollout and delayed overall grades are intended to prevent schools from experiencing sudden drops in rankings as the state moves to a more rigorous evaluation system.

Lima Symphony Orchestra to kick off 60th anniversary season with free public concert
Information submitted LIMA — The Lima Symphony Orchestra will begin its 60th anniversary season with a free public concert to celebrate the restoration of St. John Catholic Church. We begin our season with “Baroque by Candlelight” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 7 at St. John Church, 777 S. Main St. St. John Church was the original home of the LSO’s Candlelight concerts, which began in 1997 and continued in that space until 2008. With the restoration of the church, we are delighted to return to the location that gave rise to our popular sanctuary concerts. Our vibrant and engaging concert will feature some of the most famous and familiar music of the Baroque era performed against
trators, State Superintendent Richard Ross said the state will be discouraging comparisons with the old rating system. “In our communications about these new report cards, we will be emphasizing that these nine measures cannot and should not be averaged into a single grade for a school or district, and that we will wait until 2015 to issue component and overall district and building grades, once we phase in the remaining measures,” he wrote. Asbury said report cards are changing as underlying educational goals in the state are getting tougher. Earning a score of proficient, for example, will require getting an 80 percent rather than 75 percent, he said. Michele Prater, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Education Association, said the state’s largest teachers’ union is remaining optimistic. “While we anticipate that many schools will see poorer grades initially, we hope the new report cards are grounded in fair, reliable methodology based on valid, researchbased indicators that are both informative and easily understood.”

AGRIBUSINESS Sudden Death Syndrome in soybeans shows up in Putnam County fields
BY JAMES HOORMAN Ag Educator OSU-Extension Putnam County The following information is condensed from a Purdue fact sheet (Diseases of Soybeans, BP-58-W) on soybean sudden death syndrome (SDS). SDS is showing up in Putnam County fields and the first signs are small, bright, pale green to yellow spotted leaves and then leaf drop. It occurs in wet areas, end rows and/ or compacted areas that may enlarge after two-three weeks. Generally, the soybeans upper leaves between the veins will turn yellow and then turn brown and die. To positively identify SDS, split the soybeans lower stem and taproot and look for a slightly tan to light brown discoloration in infected plants. The pith (central portion of stem) will remain white or slightly cream-colored. SDS infected plants often have light blue patches on the soil line near the taproot’s surface which are blue SDS spore masses. SDS is caused by the soilborne fungus Fusarium solani and survives the winter in the crop residue or lives freely in the soil. The fungus also can survive in cysts of the soybean cyst nematode (SCN) and can withstand wide soil temperature fluctuations (including freezing) and resists desiccation (drying out). As soil temperatures rise in the spring, spores near soybean roots are stimulated to germinate and then infect soybean roots. The fungus may infect roots as early as one week after crop emergence but aboveground symptoms of SDS rarely appear until mid-July, when soybean plants start to flower. Heavy rains during reproductive stages (R3R6) often are critical for SDS development. Over a period of years, flowing water and cultivation practices may move the spores over large areas, increasing the infected area. SDS management options are limited. Although soybean varieties less sensitive to SDS have been developed, there are no highly-resistant varieties. While most seed companies have removed highly-susceptible varieties from their inventories, no highly-resistant varieties are available. Fungicides applied in furrow during planting or as seed treatments have only limited effects, and fungicides applied to foliage have no effect on SDS. Management practices may reduce the risk of SDS damage but they will not prevent the disease. Early planting predisposes soybean to infection due to cool wet soils. Rapid spring soybean growth and dry soils limit the risk of SDS infection and if the SDS fungus is not present, the soybeans will not develop SDS. So growers should plant fields with no history of SDS first and then plant fields where SDS has been a problem later. Compacted soils impede water percolation and restrict root growth. A heavy rain when soybeans havereached the reproductive stage will saturate compacted areas, which promotes SDS development. Correcting soil compaction and water permeability problems may reduce the risk for SDS. Tile drainage or planting cover crops may improve permeability. In some soils, no-tillage can be beneficial and increase soil water permeability. In other soils, tillage may be necessary for maintaining sufficient vertical water movement. Growers should focus on how to create the best soil drainage to reduce SDS infection. There does not appear to be a rotation that significantly reduces SDS. Corn does not reduce the incidence and severity of SDS; and severe outbreaks of the disease have occurred even after several years of continuous corn. However, crop rotation does reduce other soybean pathogens. It appears that shifting to a twoyear rotation of corn and soybeans (compared to longer rotations) has favored the buildup of SDS populations and other soil-borne soybean pathogens. Purdue studies have found that when corn is grown in the field, soil-borne soybean pathogen populations may decline but not enough to substantially reduce the problem. Although a two-year C-S rotation may hold soybean cyst nematode (SCN) populations below threshold levels when the SDS population is low, such a rotation appears to be too short to reduce populations of SDS during the year corn is grown. The combined action of SDS and SCN will damage soybean varieties susceptible to both pathogens. Production practices that maintain SCN at low levels may reduce the risk for SDS and if SCN is present, a management strategy for both pests should be implemented. Including cover crops in the crop rotation, especially cereal rye or oil seed radish may improve soil health, soil diversity and improve soil drainage to lower SCN populations. Yield reductions due to SDS are dependent on when infections begins and usually the most productive part of the field is affected. Early infections will result in pod abortion, reduced seed number and size. Infections after flowering will not have a significant impact on yield.

Putnam Soil & Water annual meeting set for Sept. 4
Cool temps hamper Dakota bees’ honey production
BRUCE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota honey producer Richard Adee pulls a rectangular beehive frame from an extracting machine and points to a bell curve-shaped pattern of honey and wax. In a good year, the frame would be full. Adee Honey Farms in Bruce will extract and ship about 5 million pounds of honey this year, off from what Adee considers a good year of about 8 million pounds. “We’re on the tail end of the summer and it’s definitely going to be a short crop,” he said this week. Adee is not alone. A monthlong stretch of cooler summer temperatures in the Dakotas has honey producers anticipating a drop in the states’ honey crops as extracting gets underway. North Dakota and South Dakota are the nation’s top two honey-producing states, with North Dakota churning out 34 million pounds in 2012 and South Dakota producing 17 million pounds. The U.S. Department of Agriculture won’t release its 2013 production numbers until the spring, and there’s no telling how much a short crop could affect prices at the supermarket. Bob Reiners, South Dakota’s state apiarist, said he has taken calls from nervous producers who say they have bills to pay but not much honey in the brood boxes. The culprit appears to be mid- to late-summer temperatures that have too frequently been below normal, he said. “It seems to be the bulk of the honey thus far was made real early,” Reiners said. It has been a tale of two seasons in North Dakota. Producers have been enjoying great conditions in the western and northern parts of the state, but eastern North Dakota has been suffering from a lack of warmth and a continuing drop in the number of nectar-producing plants, said Bonnie Woodworth, director at large of the North Dakota Beekeepers Association. “Eastern North Dakota, they’re just really lacking on forage,” Woodworth said. “There’s just so much corn and soybeans. Soybeans will produce, but it needs to be warm nights and hot days and they just haven’t had that.” The Dakotas honey slowdown comes on the heels of continuing bee losses from colony collapse disorder, a mysterious phenomenon that has caused as much as one-third of the nation’s bees to just disappear each winter since 2006. A federal report blames a combination of intertwined factors that include a parasitic mite, multiple viruses, bacteria, poor nutrition, genetics, habitat loss and pesticides. “Boy, it really hit hard this last winter,” Adee said. “We lost 42 percent of the bees we ship to California, and that’s about the national average. We can’t sustain those losses.” During a typical summer, bees will continue to carry pollen back to their hives until the early part of September, and producers will extract honey from frames through October. Adee said warmer temperatures this week could help the bees still in the fields pick up the pace, but beekeepers prefer temperatures in the 80s rather than the 90s or 70s. “We’re all hoping for a good two weeks left of the summer to kind of bring things up a little a bit, and it could make a little difference,” he said. “But it’s getting late. The flowers are just about gone.” As big as Adee’s honey operation is, it’s secondary to his pollination business. At summer’s end, the colonies will be shipped to California to pollinate almond crops and then head north to Washington to pollinate apples. They’ll then head down south for bee breeding operations in Mississippi and Texas. “Those bees are little tourists, and they don’t even get frequent flyer miles,” Adee said.

CHESTER, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey farmer has cut the faces of Republican Gov. Chris Christie and his Democratic challenger into a corn maze to highlight the state’s gubernatorial election. The corn was planted in June at the Stony Hill Farm in Chester. Owner Dale Davis tells Newark’s The Star-Ledger newspaper he chose the maze to get people interested. He says everybody recognizes Christie but he doesn’t know whether a lot of people would recognize gubernatorial rival Sen. Barbara Buono. Christie is far ahead of Buono in public polls and leads among nearly every demographic group. He’s seen as a viable contender for the 2016 Republican nomination for president. The Morris County maze will open to the paying public Aug. 31. The election is Nov. 5.
Soybeans gain on outlook for dry weather
Associated Press Soybeans are rising to their highest in two months on speculation that dry weather in the Midwest could impact this year’s crop. About one-third of the crop-growing areas in the Midwest could remain “notably dry” for at least the next 10 days, the Commodity Weather Group said in a bulletin on Wednesday. That could threaten the yields of soybean crops. “It’s unusually dry in Nebraska and Iowa, drier than normal,” said Sterling Smith, a commodities analyst at Citigroup. “That’s allowing the market to build in a little bit of a risk premium.” Soybeans for November delivery rose 13.5 cents, or 1 percent, to $13.04 a bushel. That’s the highest price since June 19. Concern about dry weather has pushed soybean prices

Football - save us, please!
By JIM METCALFE Sports Editor email@example.com It takes football to bring the two political parties together. My proof: the 1972 Miami Dolphins — the only National Football League team to finish a perfect season — finally visited the White House the other day. Some of the game’s greats came from that team: Hall-of-Famers such as bullish fullback Larry Csonka, middle linebacker Nick Buoniconti, wide receiver Paul Warfield, center Jim Langer, guard Larry Little, quarterback Bob Griese and coach Don Shula; and never had the chance because at the time, then-President Richard Nixon had “other” things on his mind — like Watergate. This time, President Barack Obama — a Democrat — welcomed in the still-living members of those No-Names (No-Names in the Hall of Fame? I guess so, since Buoniconti is the only defender in Canton), whose trips from Kingdom Come were paid for by current Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross — a Republican. See what football can do? Three members of that team refused the invitation due to differences with the administration. I wish that weren’t so — I get there are differences but if only those could be set aside for this. My guess is that this has happened other times but who knows. It’s not perfect but football should still get the Nobel Peace Prize for 2013!!! ———— It seems that some major-league baseball players are letting their opinions regarding Alex Rodriguez be known loud and clear. It seems that more and more pitchers are “challenging” Mr. Rodriguez by throwing inside, if not flat-out hitting him. My guess is that this will continue to be a trend until it is resolved and you will see more umpires reacting like the one the other night — plate umpire Brian O’Nora — in the New York Yankees versus Boston Red Sox Sunday night matchup, warning both benches right off the bat. Rodriguez wants to let this all go away and wait for the “right time” to air his side of the story — either

you’re guilty or not, period; don’t give the run-around — but then keeps bringing it to our attention because he is playing through his appeal of the suspension and he MUST know the media won’t stop asking the questions of him or Yankees manager Joe Girardi or GM Brian Cashman. I think his teammates may get tired of it, too, partly because by all accounts, he isn’t much of a teammate. He wants it both ways but it won’t work. At the same time, I cannot blame the clean players who are sick and tired of them being tainted with broad paint-brush strokes: it isn’t fair but EVERYONE — outside of a few — is suspect until all of the cheaters are booted. I get that nutrition is better, training is better, players are Bigger/Stronger/Faster because of it but how many home runs are hit now that used to be long fly-ball outs? If you want to know who a dirty player is or a cheat or whatever, who knows better than those that compete with or against them? After all, what happens in Las Vegas/baseball clubhouses … Above all, they likely applaud the guys that took their medicine, admitted they were guilty and dropped out of sight. I guess the other players “won’t fight for themselves”, eh? Unfortunately, as I wrote before, when the arbitrator finally “gets around” to making his ruling, this season will be over and that 211-game suspension will likely be cut at least in half, if not 2/3 (or Alex will be retired, in which case the “sentence” will only then be upheld). After all, if a 7-time cocaine-test failure like Steve Howe (by the way, how did he avoid jail?) can’t be banned by Baseball from its Hall of Fame — he will NEVER get in but that is beside the point — then how can any active player be suspended from the game for this long, especially by an “objective arbitrator”? ——— I was going to write something about Johnny Football — defending Heisman Trophy-winner Johnny Manziel — last week but ran out of room. I don’t know if he’s guilty of whatever it is he seems to be accused of every day or not. He has made this such a high-profile case, the NCAA must take its time to do a thorough job in finding out all the information needed. No, what comes to my mind is that people keep showing up when he tweets, twitters, posts — how about simply announce? — where he is going to be and what he is going to do and then complaining that they are there. If you are going to let everyone know what’s going on, then close thy mouth about them showing up.
No Roby, no Hyde, no Smith means Buckeyes adapt
Associated Press COLUMBUS — While Armani Reeves spoke to a semicircle of reporters after a recent Ohio State practice, the person he was discussing was about 50 feet behind him seated in an ice bath cooling off after another hot day of work. The distance was more than a little symbolic. Bradley Roby, the Buckeyes’ standout cornerback, isn’t doing any talking these days, at least not publicly. He also isn’t even practicing with the first team. Roby, like fellow stars Carlos Hyde, the Buckeyes’ leading scorer last year, and Hyde’s top backup, Rod Smith, is suspended for the opening game, Aug. 31 at home against Buffalo. All got into trouble. All are paying a price. Some fans think it’s a high price since no one was hurt and there were no serious charges. Others believe the matters have been swept under the scarlet-and-gray rug outside coach Urban Meyer’s office. Players like Reeves will carry the load for the Buckeyes. “I was always willing to be a hard worker on and off the field,” said Reeves, tabbed to start at Roby’s cornerback spot. “I still learn from the older guys like (Roby). Whether the situation is good or bad I’m just going to take advantage of any opportunity I have and play to the best of my abilities.” Ohio State’s coaches spent nine months making plans to fill the holes left from last year’s 12-0 team. Now, with the opener just over a week away, they must come up with three more replacements. Hyde will miss the first three games after an alleged assault against a woman. Roby will sit out at least the opener after a skirmish at a bar in Bloomington, Ind. Rod Smith, who was expected to take Hyde’s spot, was benched for the first game after a violation of team rules last winter. Roby had his misdemeanor assault charge reduced to misdemeanor disorderly conduct, then The Columbus Dispatch reported on Wednesday that the latest charge was dropped on the condition that Roby not face any legal problems in the next year. “He’ll be suspended one game just because there’s an issue,” Meyer said. There are worthy candidates — like Reeves — in the wings. But it’s still not the ideal way to go into a season. Hyde and Smith will likely be replaced by a committee: H-back Jordan Hall, secondyear players Bri’onte Dunn and Warren Ball and freshmen Dontre Wilson and Ezekiel Elliott. Wilson has been the talk of camp, with water-bug moves and incredible speed. “Jordan Hall is a guy who has some playing experience and has been through some adversity, obviously,” running backs coach Stan Drayton said, referring to Hall’s injuryriddled career. “He does have some game experience. … Yeah, I’d say he’s probably the No. 1 guy right now.” The coaches have heaped praise on the
three chastened players, saying they have refrained from sulking and have taken an active role in preparing the players who will take their spots. “He was wrong. He screwed up. He’s paying a price,” cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs said of Roby. “He works hard at his craft, he studies film, he takes care of his business and he wants to be as good as anybody in the country. He’s not yet. I don’t find him to be different (this season after the suspension). I find him to be embarrassed and I don’t blame him. But I find him to be a guy who’s going about his business as a pro.” Against an overmatched Buffalo team that is coming off a 4-8 record in coach Jeff Quinn’s third season, the suspensions probably won’t be noticed. But integrating suspended players back into the lineup in season isn’t easy without ruffling the feathers of the players who filled in for them or stayed away from offseason trouble. Reeves is excited about the prospect of starting the first game of his sophomore season. “It means a lot,” he said. “You’d never expect a kid from Boston to be playing at Ohio State. It’s a very different experience and I can’t wait to have all my family and friends to see me on the field. It’ll be fun. It’ll be real fun.” But Reeves knows that as soon as Roby is cleared to play, he will likely head back to the sidelines. “Obviously he’s one of the best in the country, if not the best,” Reeves added. “When he comes back, I’m still going to do the same thing I’ve been doing all the time and that’s just working hard and helping this team anyway I can.” The ABCs of Ohio State football A look at the 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes from AA to Z: AA—is for Aaron Mawhirter, a walk-on freshman linebacker from Sandusky, Ohio, first in alphabetic order by first name but probably will have difficulty getting into a game. A—is for “The Big A,” aka as Adolphus Washington. A quarterback-eating (in a manner of speaking) defensive lineman from Cincinnati’s Taft High, he was a big get for coach Urban Meyer in his first recruiting class. Now Washington is destined to make Adolphus a household name as he starts up front on the rebuilt line. B—is for Bedford, Ohio, home of current Buckeye Tyvis Powell and former Mr. Football and ex-Ohio Stater Bam Childress.
Childress never really found his niche at Ohio State after a spectacular career at Chanel High. Powell is penciled in as the Buckeyes’ “Star” which is a hybrid position, melding a safety with a linebacker to provide extra coverage in passing situations. C—is for California, the third opponent on the 2013 Ohio State schedule. The Bears open a new era under first-year coach Sonny Dykes, who comes from Louisiana Tech to replace 11-year coach Jeff Tedford. The Bears were just 3-9 a year ago, but welcome back seven starters on offense, six on defense and three on special teams. D—is for Defense, of course. The Buckeyes have plenty of new names filling out the starting slots, since they lost seven first-team players from a year ago (including the entire line) and also will be without cornerback Bradley Roby for the first game due to a suspension. E—is for Earle, as in Bruce. The 82-yearold was 81-26-1 in nine seasons from 1979 through 1987 as head coach of the Buckeyes. He now is a radio analyst in Columbus. F—is for FAMU, or Florida A&M University if you prefer. The Rattlers aren’t in the same class with the Buckeyes — literally. They’re a Football Championship Subdivision member, meaning they don’t play in bowl games but rather can participate in a playoff at the end of the year. FAMU comes to Ohio Stadium for the first time on Sept. 21, the Buckeyes’ final tuneup before beginning Big Ten play the following week at home against Wisconsin. G—is for Geelong. That’s the hometown of 21-year-old freshman punter Cameron Johnston, a former Australia Rules Football player down under. He sent a video of his punting prowess to several schools, including Ohio State, and has impressed the coaching staff enough to win the job in camp. One can only imagine what the folks back in Geelong must think of their native son as a Buckeye, named for the spiky nut of a native tree. H—is for Heisman, and also Jeff Heuerman. The Ohio State tight end was asked during camp what he expected out of improving quarterback Braxton Miller this season. Rather than explain, he stepped back, struck a pose as if he were running and feigned a straight arm — creating a 6-foot-6 representation of the Heisman Trophy. Then he laughed. Miller is considered one of a handful of favorites for the Heisman heading into the season, although last year’s winner, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel wasn’t considered a frontrunner at this time last year. And he’s back to try to win another. I—is for the I’s have it. Ohio State plays Illinois and Indiana back to back on Nov. 16 and 23. J—is for J.T., times two. If Meyer ever shouts, “J.T., come here!” during practice he could get stampeded. The Buckeyes have both freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett and junior defensive lineman J.T. Moore. See OSU, page 7
Browns rookie LB Mingo still out with lung bruise
By TOM WITHERS Associated Press BEREA — Barkevious Mingo’s injury has gone from maybe serious to mysterious. Cleveland’s rookie linebacker remains sidelined with a bruised lung, a “freakish” injury the first-round pick believes he sustained nearly a week ago on the opening kickoff of an exhibi-
Mingo tion against Detroit. Mingo was hospitalized for two days with the injury, which he said caused him to twice spit up blood and gave him shortness of breath before he was taken out of last Thursday’s game. Mingo said he has been symptomfree since last week but it’s still not clear when he was injured. Mingo will not play in Saturday’s preseason game at Indianapolis and it’s likely he will be kept of the final exhibition against Chicago as well. On Wednesday, Mingo was seen taking a nap while lying across several chairs in the locker room. After he woke up, he told reporters that he has improved but that doctors still aren’t allowing him to practice. He reiterated that he does not think the injury occurred before last week’s 24-6 win over the Lions, adding he had never had those symptoms before experiencing them on the sideline. “Everything is feeling good,” Mingo said. “Everyone is happy with the progress and now we’re just waiting to see what the doctors say, so we can get back.”
Mingo was last seen by doctors and had more tests on Tuesday but the No. 6 overall pick has not been cleared to practice and hasn’t been told when he’ll be able to return to the field. For the moment, he’s only allowed to observe practice and doctors have discouraged him from doing any running. Mingo was joined on the sideline by starting outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard, who was held out with an unspecified knee injury. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski did not mention Sheard as one of the players who would miss practice when he was asked for a list earlier in the day. During practice, a team spokesman said Sheard is day-to-day. The sight of Mingo and Sheard standing side-by-side on the sideline with towels draped over their heads had to be concerning to the Browns, who are counting on the pair to rush the quarterback. With Sheard out, Quentin Groves worked with Cleveland’s first-team defense on the opposite side of Paul Kruger. The Browns will wait for Mingo’s bruise to heal completely before he’s allowed back on the field. He’s promised he’ll try to be a patient patient. “I’m listening to the doctors, listening to the coaches,” he continued. “That’s all I know.” Chudzinski didn’t provide much of an update on Mingo. “The timeline nobody really knows exactly,” he said. “It is just a matter of how quickly his body heals.” Mingo doesn’t recall being hit on the opening kickoff last week or remember any significant impact that may have caused his unusual injury. As he waits for medical clearance, Mingo is doing all he can to stay sharp. He’s asking veteran teammates for pointers and offering encouragement as they go through drills without him.

Kyle Busch wins Truck race, 14th Bristol victory
Associated Press BRISTOL, Tenn. — Kyle Busch won the NASCAR Truck Series race Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for his record 14th overall victory on the high-banked, 0.533-mile oval. The Sprint Cup driver took fresh tires with 16 laps to go, passed Ryan Blaney for the lead with six laps left and held off Timothy Peters in a race to the finish that ended with Peters crashing on the frontstretch. “He wrecked a pretty good race truck and I hate it for him,” Busch said. “But we had a pretty good race truck. We got behind with a penalty on pit road but we just stuck in there and persevered to get back to the front.” Busch broke a tie with Darrell Waltrip for the NASCAR track victory record. Busch has four victories at the track in the Truck Series, five in Sprint Cup and five in the Nationwide Series. The victory was his third in eight Truck starts this season and pushed his career total to 33. Busch started 10th in the No. 51 Toyota and worked his way up to second early in the race. He was given a penalty for speeding on pit road on lap 85 and fell back to 26th. He was 12th, nearly a lap down with 20 laps to go before the caution came out for a wreck by Jeff Agnew. Busch charged to second on the second-to-last restart and then passed Blaney on the inside for the lead on Lap 194. Peters raced to the inside of Busch with two laps to go and the two remained side-by-side to the finish. Busch inched ahead at the line as Peters’ No. 17 Toyota spun out of control and slammed the inside wall. “I was going for it. It was either wreckers or checkers,” Peters said. “Kyle was holding his line a little low but that’s what he’s supposed to do. I got into him a little at the end and the truck took off. I hate it that we tore up our truck but I was going for it.” Blaney finished third but was fuming over an incident with Peters laps earlier. “He ran me up to the fence at the end and I wasn’t too happy about that,” Blaney said. Peters was unapologetic about the contact. “That’s short-track racing,” he explained. “He might as well get over it.” Johnny Sauter finished fourth in a Toyota and Chase Elliott was fifth in a Chevrolet. Elliott, the 17-year-old son of former NASCAR champion Bill Elliott, won the pole with a lap of 15.328 seconds (125.183 mph). He led the first 63 laps of the race before Peters passed him for the top spot. After the race, the crews of points leader Matt Crafton and Joey Coulter scuffled in the pits over an on-track skirmish. Crafton finished 10th, one position ahead of Crafton. Ben Kennedy, the great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., was 20th, one lap down, in his series debut. Earlier, Mike Stefanik won the NASCAR Whelen Modified Series race. The 7-time series champion passed Todd Szegedy with 10 laps remaining for his series-record 74th career win. Sprint Cup Series driver Ryan Newman finished fifth. Earnhardt feeling heat after 2 subpar weekends RICHMOND, Va. — Two weeks ago, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sailing along looking like a lock to make it into NASCAR’s Chase for the Championship, standing fifth in points in one of the most consistent seasons of his career. Then he finished 30th at Watkins Glen and 36th at Michigan. Suddenly, the most popular driver in the Sprint Cup Series is feeling some heat. “The confidence is there but the stress is there, too,” he told reporters during a pause from testing Wednesday at Richmond International Raceway,
For Woods, still some work to do this year
Associated Press JERSEY CITY, N.J. — This might be the best way to measure Tiger Woods’ season. Sam Snead is getting more attention than Jack Nicklaus. Woods said again Wednesday at The Barclays this already has been a great season and it’s difficult to argue. His five wins — including two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship — are three more than anyone else on the PGA Tour. He is leading all the right indicators, such as the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, the money list ($2.6 million more than anyone Woods else) and the No. 1 seed going into the FedEx Cup playoffs that start today. The standard for Woods, however, always has been the majors and he was shut out for the fifth straight year. “His lack of winning a major is the only thing talked about, which I think is sad,” Bill Haas said. “I think it’s ignorant. But that’s what we are basing his year on. He may even say, ‘Oh, I’m disappointed because I didn’t win a major.’ But he’s not winning the smaller events. He’s winning the WGCs and Bay Hill. And yes, it makes what he’s doing that much more impressive, absolutely.” Woods is stuck on 14 majors, leaving him four short of the Nicklaus standard. The five wins this year, after three wins in 2012, has put him at 79 career wins, moving him closer to Snead’s record 82 wins on the PGA Tour. “I tell you what; I never thought I would ever get there this quick,” Woods said. “It’s been an amazing run to get here. One of the things I’m most proud of is winning five or more tournaments 10 years in there. That’s one of the stats that I look at as one of the ones I’m really proud of. This is one of those years.” The next chance to add to his wins starts today at The
where all four Hendrick Motorsports teams are spending two days. Earnhardt has fallen to seventh in the standings, just 20 points ahead of teammate Kasey Kahne, who is 11th with three races remaining before the field is set in the regular season finale at Richmond. The top 10 in points automatically qualify, along with two wild card selections that place a premium on victories. Kahne has two, leading everyone outside the top six, and Earnhardt doesn’t have any. “You definitely don’t like to be in this situation,” Earnhardt said. “I don’t think anybody wants to be on the bubble or even worried or concerned about points leading up to Richmond, so we hope to have a couple of good weeks to put ourselves in a pretty comfortable situation before we even come here.” Earnhardt has three career victories on the 0.75-mile D-shaped oval, which drivers say combines short-track bumping and banging and a superspeedway feel, but his last victory here came in May 2006. “It’s a tough track,” he said. “Just looking at everybody as a whole, nobody really comes here and is just great every time. It’s not a track that you see one team consistently dominate. We’ve had good cars here and brought back the same setup and it just didn’t work. You’re never really sure when you show up.” The series moves to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend and also stops in Atlanta before returning to Richmond with what looks to be a battle that could go down to the final laps under the lights at RIR. Matt Kenseth, who is sixth in points, and No. 12 Martin Truex Jr. are separated by just 35 points. “The intensity definitely ramps up a little bit, especially with all these short tracks right here butting up against the Chase with Bristol and Richmond,” Earnhardt added. “It definitely puts some tension in the air and makes everybody a little bit more nervous because anything can happen.”

Barclays, the first of four FedEx Cup playoff events against some of the strongest fields of the year. Yes, the majors are over. There is still plenty up for grabs — for Woods, British Open champion Phil Mickelson and even someone like Rory McIlroy. Even though Woods has twice as many wins as anyone else, Mickelson could make a case for PGA Tour player of the year if he were to win a playoff or event (or two), particularly the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize. Despite two decades of greatness and a spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame, Mickelson has never won player of the year, a money title or the Vardon Trophy. Haas didn’t hesitate when asked who had the best year — Woods. Neither did Masters champion Adam Scott. “It’s hard to pass up looking at five wins,” Scott replied. “I think the next best guy might have two, is that right? That’s a great year to win that many times. It’s all personal opinion. If you think winning a major is what you base success on, then if you haven’t (won), you haven’t had a great year. But winning … I’ve always based it around winning events and I don’t think one major makes up for five tournaments.” That led to another question posed to Scott: Would he trade seasons with Woods? “I’d rather have mine, that’s for sure,” replied Scott, who collected his first major at Augusta National. “He may want mine. I mean, No. 15 is proving to be difficult for him, so that would have given him that. But they’ve all got to get tougher the more you get.” Woods only played nine holes of his pro-am Wednesday at Liberty National, the course along the Hudson River across from the Statue of Liberty. He experienced stiffness in his neck and back from what he attributed to a soft bed in his hotel and decided only to chip and putt on the back nine as a precaution. It was the latest nagging injury this year — a tweaked back during the final round of the PGA Championship, an elbow injury in the summer that caused him to miss two tournaments — though Woods was not concerned and said he was fine during his week off at home in Florida.

K—is for Kickoff Luncheon. At the Big Ten’s annual media get-together in late July, the Buckeyes were voted the team to beat not only in their division but in the conference title game (see next item). L—is for Leaders Division. Ohio State, at 6-7, wasn’t good enough two years ago to play for the fancy-named division title in the Big Ten, then last year won it but was banned from playing in the conference championship game. This will be the first time, in the third year of the conference’s divisional setup, that the Buckeyes can play in the Big Ten title game, set for Dec. 7 in Indianapolis. M—is for Miller. Make that Millers. There’s two of them on the Buckeyes’ roster. One, of course, is starting quarterback Braxton Miller. There’s also Steve Miller, a junior defensive lineman out of Canton McKinley High. No word if some people refer to him, per a song by his namesake, as “the gangster of love.” N—is for Nine, as in nine Big Ten games. After years of playing eight conference opponents, the Big Ten shifts to a nine-game conference schedule in 2016. O—is for Ojikutu. Brandon Ojikutu is a junior wide receiver out of Cleveland John Marshall High. P—is for Pryor, former QB Terrelle Pryor. He is still in the midst of a 5-year exile from Ohio State, banished by the NCAA during the probe two years ago for allegedly being the guy who handed out money to players who attended a
charity event. He is getting a shot to play a lot for the Oakland Raiders this season. Q—is for the Q in Tyquan Lewis, a freshman D-lineman out of Tarboro, N.C., who had a solid camp. R—is for Rock, as in Chris Rock. No, not the popular comedian and actor. This one is a sophomore defensive lineman who prepped at Columbus DeSales High. If this Chris Rock makes a joke, you’d better laugh — he’s 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds. S—is for Simon, John Simon. The co-captain a year ago has moved on to the NFL and is trying to earn a spot on the roster at linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens. His absence leaves a leadership void for the Buckeyes. T—is for Touchdowns. A year ago, running back Carlos Hyde scored 17 of them — most on the team — while topping the team in points with 102. This year, Hyde must sit out the first three games after he was listed as a person of interest in an alleged assault against a female at a downtown Columbus bar in July. Video from the incident appeared to show Hyde making a striking motion at the woman, who had also slapped at him. That was enough for Meyer to sit him out the first three games since the team has a strict rule regarding respecting women. U—is for, of course, Urban. Now associated, at least in Ohio, with the football coach of the same first name, it was a moniker once associated primarily with heads of the Roman Catholic church. Pope Urban I was pope from 222 to 230. His reign is the first that can definitely be dated. There was also an Urban II, who was in charge from 1088
to 1099. He set up the first Crusade. V—is for victory. Ohio State has 837 of them in 123 years of football to go along with 316 losses and 53 ties. W—is for Wisconsin, a team sporting a different look this fall. The Badgers come to Ohio Stadium for the Big Ten opener on Sept. 28 and new coach Gary Andersen will likely have a few cards up his sleeve. His predecessor, Bret Bielema, shocked many by leaving Madison, Wis., for the rigors of the Southeastern Conference at Arkansas. Andersen’s Badgers don’t have Montee Ball (graduation) but the three-time defending conference champion does have 14 starters back, eight on offense and six on the other side, along with both kickers, the punter and long snapper. X—is for the middle letter of Texas. After decades of only getting an occasional player out of the Lone Star State, now all of a sudden the Buckeyes are ripe with guys from the heart of Longhorn territory. Running back Dontre Wilson, the freshman flame who was the talk of fall camp, is from DeSoto. Cornerback Eli Apple hails from Houston. The aforementioned QB, J.T. Barrett, is a native of Wichita Falls, Texas. And Mike Mitchell, in the mix at linebacker, is a proud son of Plano. Y—is for Youngstown, starting center Corey Linsley’s hometown. Z—is for zip, as in zero. That’s how many losses the Buckeyes had a year ago while going 12-0. Ranked No. 2 in the Associated Press media poll this year, a lot of people think they may just put up another zero in the loss column in 2013.
He said it’s not difficult to stay upbeat while watching. “This is what we do as football players,” he added. “We listen to our coaches and if they say we want you to run down there and hit that guy on the play, you go down there and hit the guy on the play. If you’ve got to sit out for a couple weeks or whatever, you sit out and then you come out ready to go.” Mingo, who last month signed a 4-year, $16.35 million contract with a team option for a fifth year, could only remember missing one game because of injury, noting it’s weird having to watch. “That’s one thing they (doctors) were talking about,” he ended. “You feel great but you’re not going to be (great), so you might as well rest up.” NOTES: DE Brian Sanford was back after his trade to the Seahawks was rescinded when guard John Moffitt failed his physical with the Browns. Sanford flew to Seattle, took a physical and thought he was starting a new NFL chapter when he was told to head back to Cleveland. It was a strange 24 hours. “Experiences like these you should soak in because in this league you never know where you’re going to be or what’s going to happen,” he said. “I’m just gonna play as hard as I can and hope I can continue my career playing football.” … Chudzinski named Tashaun Gipson the club’s starting free safety alongside T.J. Ward.

NSA collected thousands of US communications
STEPHEN BRAUN Associated Press WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency declassified three secret court opinions Wednesday showing how in one of its surveillance programs it scooped up as many as 56,000 emails and other communications by Americans not connected to terrorism annually over three years, revealed the error to the court — which ruled its actions unconstitutional — and then fixed the problem. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper authorized the release, part of which Obama administration officials acknowledged Wednesday was prodded by a 2011 lawsuit filed by an Internet civil liberties activist group. The court opinions show that when the NSA reported its inadvertent gathering of American-based Internet traffic to the court in September 2011, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ordered the agency to find ways to limit what it collects and how long it keeps it. In an 85-page declassified FISA court ruling from October 2011, U.S. District Judge James D. Bates rebuked government lawyers for repeatedly misrepresenting the operations of the NSA’s surveillance programs. “This court is troubled that the government’s revelations regarding NSA’s acquisition of Internet transactions mark the third instance in less than three years in which the government has disclosed a substantial misrepresentation regarding the scope of a major collection program,” Bates wrote in a

footnoted passage that had portions heavily blacked out in the government’s disclosure. The NSA had moved to revise its Internet surveillance in an effort to separate out domestic data from its foreign targeted metadata — which includes email addresses and subject lines. But in his October 2011 ruling, Bates ruled that the government’s “upstream” collection of data — taken from internal U.S. data sources — was unconstitutional. Three senior U.S. intelligence officials said Wednesday that national security officials realized the extent of the NSA’s inadvertent collection of Americans’ data from fiber optic cables in September 2011. One of the officials said the problem became apparent during internal discussions between NSA and Justice Department officials about the program’s technical operation. “They were having a discussion and a light bulb went on,” the official said. The problem, according to the officials, was that the top secret Internet-sweeping operation, which was targeting metadata contained in the emails of foreign users, was also amassing thousands of emails that were bundled up with the targeted materials. Because many web mail services use such bundled transmissions, the official said, it was impossible to collect the targeted materials without also sweeping up data from innocent domestic U.S. users. The officials did not explain why they did not prepare for that possibility when the surveillance program was created and why they discovered it only after the program was well under way.

Ex-dolphin trainer now looking into mass die-off
BRIGANTINE, N.J. (AP) — Once upon a time, he was known as Capt. Bob, the man who trained the dolphins and seals to perform for crowds in Atlantic City. But as he got to know the dolphins, Bob Schoelkopf renounced keeping them in captivity and devoted the rest of his life to rescuing stranded marine mammals. Now the man who once prodded dolphins to jump and wave their fins for crowds is part of a broad scientific effort to determine why dolphins are dying by the hundreds. “It’s worst when you get a female come ashore and she’s lactating and you see the milk come out onto the stretcher,” said Schoelkopf, co-director of the Marine Mammal Stranding Center. “That means there’s a baby out there swimming around without a mother. That baby is going to become shark bait.” So far this summer, there have been about 230 dolphin deaths along the East Coast, prompting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to declare an unusual mortality event. That clears the way for an intensive scientific inquiry into what is causing the deaths. No definitive conclusions have been reached, but many suspect the morbilli virus. The naturally occurring virus was ultimately blamed for the last major dolphin die-off, in 1987, when 740 dolphins died. This year, several of the dolphins that washed ashore in New Jersey have tested positive for the virus. The waves of dead dolphins started appearing in New Jersey in early July, and it hasn’t let up. Wednesday morning, the stranding center got a call about a dead dolphin that washed ashore in Sea Bright, the 62nd in New Jersey this year. But it was too badly decomposed and chewed up by sharks to warrant taking it for a necropsy at a veterinary center near Kennett Square, Pa., a four-hour round trip that’s exhausting volunteers. Two hours later, another dead dolphin, No. 63, washed up in Spring Lake. One recent day in New Jersey, a dolphin came ashore at 1 a.m., was euthanized at 3 a.m., and staff had just gotten home into their beds when another dolphin washed ashore at 6 a.m. Schoelkopf has been doing this for decades. A Vietnam veteran whose duty included underwater operations, he was injured during the war and sent to Philadelphia Naval Hospital. His diving experience allowed him to get a job at an aquarium, where he cleaned the underwater glass of the dolphin tanks. One night, he was scrubbing away when he felt something nudge him from behind. It was a dolphin that had gotten out of its holding tank, one of several that had learned how to open the gate, swim out and then return after a while and snap the latch closed again. “No one had any idea they were swimming out and playing around each night,” he said. It changed his life. “I didn’t want to work with captive dolphins anymore,” he said. “It wasn’t right for them to do 13 shows a day and never see sunlight.” He founded the stranding center and has earned a national reputation for rescuing beached or distressed sea creatures. He is well aware of the emotional effect sick or dead dolphins can have on people. “Animals die all the time at sea, but people don’t see it,” he said. “They get upset when they do see it. They’re looking at Flipper.”
