Portman invites Secretary of DOE to tour ACP
Frank Lewis
PDT Staff Writer
U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) Thursday
sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest
Moniz inviting him to
tour the American Centrifuge Project (ACP)
facility in Piketon, the
facility Portman refers
to as, “the cornerstone
to fulfilling our national
security requirements for
a domestic source of enriched uranium.”
In the letter, Portman thanks Moniz for
expressing his commitment to coming up with
a long-term solution to
fund the project.
“I appreciated hearing your thoughts on the
American Centrifuge Project (ACP) technology and
your understanding of the
necessity of having a domestic source of enriched
uranium to meet our longterm national security
needs,” Portman said in
his correspondence.
In addition, Portman
also expressed his disappointment that the
Obama Administration
has yet to reveal its longterm plans for ACP.
“As shared with you
during our most recent
meeting, I continue to be
disappointed that after
four years there has been
no progress on a conditional loan guarantee for
the ACP project, using the
fund Congress has already
approved,” Portman said.
USEC officials have
long awaited a positive
response to their application for a conditional
$2 billion loan guarantee
for the American Centrifuge Project at Piketon.
USEC applied for the
loan guarantee in 2008
Barack Obama promised
to support it, but since
then has remained quiet
about his support for the
loan guarantee. Since
then, USEC has partnered with the DOE in
the RD&D project. The
$350 million cooperative
cost-shared RD&D program with DOE consists
of the DOE providing 80
percent, and USEC, 20

Drug pursuit ends in crash

A Portsmouth Police officer
acting on drug trafficking intelligence, attempted to stop a Lincoln Mark VII for a traffic violation shortly after 11 a.m. Friday.
During a pursuit that lasted approximately one mile, the Lincoln
collided with a northbound Nissan Altima at the intersection of
21st Street and Sunrise Avenue,
a residential neighborhood in
The force of the collision caused
the Nissan, operated by Deanna
Egbert, 34, of Portsmouth, to collide with the pursuing officer’s
cruiser. Egbert was treated and
released at a local hospital. The
officer was not injured.
The driver of the Lincoln has
been identified as 35-year-old
Robert D. Clarke — who listed
a Portsmouth address, but has
known ties to Columbus and
Detroit. Clarke took off on foot,
but was captured in a wooded
area behind some houses a
short time later.
Police contacted a judge at
his home in the afternoon and
obtained a search warrant for a
Chief of the Attorney General’s Prescription Drug
Abuse Initiative. He also
served as Coordinator for
Special Prosecutions – Prescription Drug Unit.
Haslam replaces Richard A. Whitehouse, who
resigned last year. At the
time, no reason was given
for the resignation of Whitehouse, a frequent visitor to
the Scioto County Drug
Task Force meetings. However, according to a story
in the Columbus Dispatch,
Whitehouse was “ousted,”

LUCASVILLE — Kevin Lloyd has been hired by the Valley Local School Board as the district’s new high school
principal. Superintendent Carl McCrory said the move is
another step toward restructuring the staff to help save
the district nearly $500,000 to avoid a deficit budget.
The district’s general fund had dwindled to only a 30day supply of cash, largely because 10 employees retired
with severance pay out and less revenue collected in January and February. Eighty percent of the school’s budget is
tied up in personnel, McCrory said. On top of everything
else, middle school principal Mark Kreischer announced
he was leaving to return to South Webster.
McCrory said the district was faced with some tough
challenges, and they had to find a creative way to handle
them if they hoped to avoid a deficit.
“We had to reorganize along the third grade reading
guarantee, and we had to turn our plan in to the state to
be compliant by 2015 totally. Our mindset was, if we’re
going to start moving people — instead of just doing a
little bit here, let’s just make the switch and get it rolling,”
McCrory said.
Included in the move, he said, was the elimination of
seven vacant positions this year, and two more from last
year that add even more to the district’s total savings. The
gap will be picked up by moving employees around and
shifting responsibilities among the remaining staff.
“The board and I both feel very good about what we
have. We can save the district a lot of money. We can provide the exact amount of services and they’ll appreciate
the staff picking up more responsibility and not asking for
more. It takes a team to win, and I see that happening,”
McCrory said.
One place where the district found they could move a
teacher and eliminate cost was with Curriculum Director
Lori Jenkins.
“Lori Jenkins is a great employee, but she costs us close
to $100,000. She’s the curriculum director, but curricu-

Whitehouse’s aggressive investigations in the past two
years as the state cracked
down on “pill mills,” and
physicians involved in those
types of operations.
“I’m excited about this
new opportunity with the
Medical Board,” Haslam
said. “I would like to thank
the members of the Medical
Board and Governor Kasich and his staff for their
support. I also thank Attorney General Mike DeWine
for my prior opportunity
and for his support of this
new chapter in my career.”
Haslam was in Portsmouth in December of
2011 when DeWine shut
down Scioto County’s final pain clinic, taking the
count from 11 to zero, following the passage of regulation legislation that made
it nearly impossible to operate such a facility.
At a meeting in Portsmouth with White House
Office of National Drug
Control Policy Director
Gil Kerlikowske in July of
2011, Haslam said, “This
shows the federal government is aware of the prescription drug problem in
southern Ohio.”
Haslam obtained his law
degree from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and is
admitted to practice law in
Ohio and the United States
District Courts of Ohio.

Portsmouth Police say they have recovered a stolen vehicle and arrested
two people in the process. A police officer was running laser equipment (speed
detection) in the 3700 block of Pleasant
Avenue when they observed a red Chevrolet Cavalier exceeding the speed limit.
Police performed a traffic stop
and ran the license plate through
LEADS (Law Enforcement Agency

as belonging to a 2000 Kia.
That 2000 Kia was registered to

who was inside the vehicle that was

A Hillsboro man is killed in Lewis County crash
RIBOLT, Ky. — Authorities
are investigating a crash that
happened on Ky. 10 early Friday
that left one man hospitalized
and another man dead.
According to the Lewis
County, Ky., Sheriff’s Office, a
1989 Chevy Pickup, registered
to 57-year-old Randy Williams
of Hillsboro, Ky., was traveling east on Ky. 10 near the AA
Highway in Ribolt when the vehicle’s operator failed to negotiate a curve. The vehicle then
exited the left side of the road-
way and traveled down a steep
embankment, before overturning and coming to a rest.
A passing motorist reportedly saw the overturned vehicle
and reported it to the sheriff’s
office early Friday morning.
The sheriff’s office responded,
along with King’s Daughters
Medical Transport and Tollesboro Fire and Rescue.
Two individuals — Williams
and 53-year-old Terry Lee of
Flemingsburg, Ky. — were located in a grassy area several
feet from the vehicle. Williams
was pronounced dead at the

to Scioto County. The Scioto County
Commissioners announced Thursday the mobile unit will be parked
next to the TB Clinic at the corner of
Seventh and Court streets.
The mobile unit is free to all tuberculosis reactors in Scioto County,
and is made available through money
provided by the TB levy.
Approval has been given by the
Portsmouth Police Department for
the sides of the street to be blocked off
for parking on Seventh Street, next
to the TB Clinic and James Dickey
Post 23 of the American Legion. The
Portsmouth Police Department also
gave approval for the mobile unit to
be parked at the TB Clinic location
for the entire four days.
The Commissioners said the mobile unit is available only to Scioto
County TB reactors.

they recognized it as what is
known as a generator.
Captain Lynn Brewer said a fourth
subject was later identified as being
involved in the lab and a case will
be presented to the Scioto County
grand jury seeking indictment for
the manufacture of the drugs. The
juvenile located inside the residence
was transported to their home and
released to their parents. A case will
be presented to the Scioto County
Prosecutor’s Office Juvenile Prosecutor for consideration of charges
against the juvenile.
A team of experts from the Ohio
Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation that is specially
trained in the disassembly of Methamphetamine Labs was called to the
scene to make the area safe. Brewer
said the arrests and the shutting
down of a potentially lethal Methamphetamine Lab was made possible by the involvement of a con-
cerned citizen. Portsmouth Police
Chief Robert Ware said anyone with
information concerning any possible criminal activity is encouraged
to call their local law enforcement
agency and report the activity.

principal Kreischer left.
Additionally, high school
principal Lisa Harley has
been moved to the central
office as director of student services, and Kevin
Lloyd has been hired as the
new high school principal.
“I really believe our new
recruit, Kevin Lloyd, will
be an asset to the children
of this district. His previous experiences as a coach,
athletic director and building principal will not only
allow for a smooth transition for our staff and students but a continuation
of the high expectations
we have at Valley High

In her new role as director of student services,
Harley will oversee many
essential, non-curricular
activities to the district
such as Latch Key, the
Ohio Improvement Process, preschool, and special education.
“This was a position that
we used to have at Valley
but did not replace when
Ken Smith retired. At the
time, it was the right decision financially, but one
that we now believe needs
to be filled. By reassigning
these two administrators,
we replaced that position
at no additional cost to
the district and will still
maintain curriculum ser-
vices,” McCrory said.
The restructuring at
Valley will help the district avoid a budget deficit for one, maybe two
years, McCrory said, and
allows the district to continue offering summer

ODOT begins resurfacing 522
Ryan Scott Ottney
PDT Staff Writer
The Ohio Department of Transportation announced Thursday that contractors this week are beginning preliminary
work this week for a resurfacing and
bridge repair project on State Route 522
in Scioto County.
According to ODOT District 9 Deputy
Director Vaughn Wilson, crews from the
Shelly Company, in Thornville, Ohio,
will be resurfacing 8.3 miles of Ohio 522,
beginning at its junction with U.S. 52 at
Wheelersburg and continuing to the Lawrence County line. In addition to paving
the route, the contractors will be repairing
six bridges, including the U.S. 52 overpass
bridge at the Ohio 522/Wheelersburg exit.
The Shelly Company was awarded
a contract in the amount of approximately $1.52 million to complete the
project, and all work is anticipated to
be completed by mid-fall.
Construction is scheduled to begin
Monday, June 24, and traffic will be
maintained in one, 12-foot lane with the
use of temporary traffic signals. In the remainder of the construction zone, traffic
will be maintained in one lane by flaggers
when crews are at work.
In other Wheelersburg paving projects,
the Porter Township Trustees last week
awarded a roads contract in the amount
of $157,000 to G and J Paving, of Chillicothe, to resurface Bell Hill, a quarter-mile
of Highland Bend Road, and Gleim Road
near the high school. Work was reported
to begin this week and continue until Aug.
9. Detour signs will be posted.

ODOT road work in Scioto Co.
For the week ending June 21, 2013:
The following traffic advisory includes
road construction and major maintenance projects requiring lane restrictions
and/or closures along the state and federal highway system within Scioto County. June 18-20: S.R. 335 will be closed at
the 3.1-mile marker Tuesday, June 18,
through Thursday, June 20, for a culvert
replacement project. The project site is
situated in the Rigrish Addition area,
between C.R. 246 (Stout Hollow Road)
and C.R. 15 (Dixon Mill Road). While
the route is closed, motorists will be detoured via S.R. 139 and U.S. 52.
Construction continues in Shawnee
State Forest, where crews are installing
headwalls, replacing culverts and repaving various forest roads. Throughout
construction, traffic will be maintained
with flaggers except for intermittent
periods of short-term closure. All work
is anticipated to be completed by late
summer. (#13-0144)
A slip repair project continues on S.R.
139 in Portsmouth. Crews are repairing
a slip at the 1.20-mile marker, between
Munn Street and T.R. 165 (Hinkley Hollow Road), just south of the corporation
limit. Throughout construction, traffic
will be maintained in one, 9-foot lane with
temporary traffic signals. The project is
anticipated to be completed in early summer. (#12-0566)
U.S. 52 is reduced to one, 11-foot lane
in each direction between T.R. 569 (Old
U.S. 52) near the S.R. 239 interchange
and the Scioto River bridges at the Portsmouth corporation limit for a major rehabilitation project. The project work limits
also include portions of S.R. 73, S.R. 239
and S.R. 852. Throughout construction,
traffic will be maintained in one, 11-foot
lane in each direction, and ramps will be

East to S.R. 239 North is closed for bridge
rehabilitation. Motorists will have access
to S.R. 239 from the off ramp; however,
there will be no access to U.S. 52 East
from S.R. 239, so traffic will be detoured
via S.R. 73/104. The closure is anticipated
to be in effect through early July, and progression of this phase of the project will be
contingent upon the weather.
S.R. 73 is reduced to one, 10-foot lane
for a slip repair project. The project site
is located at the 8.50-mile marker, approximately 1.5 miles east of S.R. 348 at

use of temporary traffic signals. The project is anticipated to be completed in early
summer. (#13-0107)

State awards grant for CAO tech-internships
Ryan Scott Ottney
PDT Staff Writer
The Ohio Third Frontier Commission this
week approved $157,500
for the Community Action
Organization of Scioto
County (CAO), in support
of the agency’s internship
program to prepare students for jobs in STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)based industries.
The program will reimburse
employers 50 percent, up
to $3,000, to hire student
interns enrolled in twoor four-year programs.
Students are paid up to
$500 each month, for up
to 12 months.
“We continue to make
Ohio stronger by investing in the high-tech jobs
of tomorrow and ensuring our students can compete for these jobs,” said
David Goodman, director
of the Ohio Development
Services Agency and
chair of the Ohio Third
Frontier Commission.
Bill Thacker, CAO chairman, said this is the third
and possibly final installment of the state grant, for
which the agency applies
annually. To date, CAO
has reportedly received
$407,000 to assist 35 interns at nine participating
businesses. Eight, Thacker
said, were hired full-time
where they were interning, and nine more have already received offers upon
“The kids are selected
from groups that are studying biological sciences,
agricultural sciences, engineering, computer sciences, math, and the participating businesses areas
of business is advanced
manufacturing, advanced
instrument controls and
electronics, and power and
propulsion,” Thacker said.
One frequent employer
with the program is Yost
Engineering, on Second
Street in Portsmouth. Yost
CEO Francesca Hartop
said they have worked with
the program for several
years, even before CAO
was involved, and have
always had wonderful students with whom to work.
“It’s a great way to connect with students early
that are in the degrees
we’re looking for,” Hartop
said. “For the students,
they actually get to try
out our environment and
see if its some place they
would like to work. We’ve
also noticed for the students doing this — in
the classroom setting you
have one semester project
and the point is to reach
a passing grade — when
they’re working on a project for us, since we put
them on live projects, it’s
not that the project ends
at the end of the term and
you get a grade. It has to
work for the client or the
project, so they have to
actually work through all
those last details.”
She said it’s great whenever they can hire an intern full-time, because they
won’t have to spend sixmonths or more training
Crypto Quote
that employee.
“I know it’s geared toward high-tech interns,
but I think anyone that
has those needs I would
certainly tell them to look
at it because it’s been incredibly successful for us.
We have hired so many
students out of that program,” Hartop said.
Any business interested
in participating in the program by hosting an intern
through the program can
contact CAO Workforce
Manager Dan Mault at
740-354-7541. The internship program covers students and employers in
Adams, Brown, Pike and
Scioto counties.
In addition to CAO in
Scioto County, the Ohio
Commission also awarded
$211,200 to the Southeastern Ohio Port Authority, in
Marietta. More information about the program can
be found online at thirdfrontierintern.ohio.gov.

Baby Blanket program helps children in need
Frank Lewis
PDT Staff Writer
Contrary to popular belief, Scioto County Children Services does more
than remove children from
questionable homes.
“People think one thing
or the other. All we do is
take kids or they call in
and we do nothing,” Elaine
Evans, Supervisor of Intake and Investigations at
Scioto County Children
Services, said.
In reality, Children Services performs a lot of
services people may not
see on a daily basis. Their
Alternative Response Department works with families in a supportive fashion
by assessing and identifying their strengths and
needs for services. Oftentimes, these families have
limited resources. Now
they are inviting and urging residents to help them
and assist those families by
participating in the Baby
Basket Project.
People are being asked
to assemble lots of baby
items in a basket and donate those baskets
would like to partner with
people to serve those
families and the youth,
by having individuals and
groups assemble a basket

families that are experiencing a crisis. However, we need your help to
accomplish our mission.’
— Lindsay Hall
Licensing specialist
of baby and children’s
items and donate those
baskets to the Alternative
Response Department.
“Our community depends
on us to keep our children
safe and assist families that
are experiencing a crisis,”
Lindsay Hall, Licensing
Specialist, said. “However,
we need your help to accomplish our mission.”
Evans said there are
many ways the community
can get involved.
“Maybe church groups
or civic groups could get
together and donate,”
Evans said. “Some of the
churches may have a women’s group, and maybe a
couple of times a year they
could even do a baby shower, but those items would
be donated to us for us to
be able to use for families.
They could bring in little
layette outfits, and onesies
and socks and diapers, and
wipes, baby wash, baby
lotion, just any baby and
infant care items. It would
kind of be fun for them
because it’s a fun activity,
to have a baby shower, but
they would donate those
things, and it would be
basically a service project.
That helps us because then
we have those resources
here to help with families.”
Evans said those donating baskets with baby
items can drop them off
at Scioto Count Children
Services, 3940 Gallia St. in
New Boston, or call Elaine
or Lindsay at 740-4564164, and they can make
arrangements to pick the
baskets and items up.
“And they can also make
monetary donations,” Evans said. “Maybe they have
a burden or a concern for
children who are already in
foster care, and we do activities with them throughout the year. We do a
Christmas party, they usually do something around
Halloween, and sometimes
during the summer they’ll
do a pool party, so even
monetary donations can
be specified for children in
foster care for activities.”
Evans said she believes
if the public is educated
as to the services provided to the families who are
often in crisis, they will
respond and help.
“There’s just different
ways that people can be involved,” Evans said. “And
we’re also willing to go out
and talk to groups. Lindsay and I have both gone
out and talked with some
church groups and some
civic groups, and made a
presentation to them so
that we can let them know
the kind of items that they
can donate or the types of
things that we need. And
that gives them the opportunity to also ask questions about the agency.”
“The items for a basket
can vary, as we are grateful
for any donations. How-

some emergency food boxes that will tied a family

Evans said. “And then,
somethings with that, we
might possibly not have to
remove the children, if that
is the only risk factor. We
try to have some supplies
like that, that are available
that we can use some of
that stuff to prevent a removal, and help a family
that maybe is in a crisis
situation out.”

Post 23 still looking for win in 2013 GBC
Cody Leist
PDT Sports Writer
Post 23 coach Jack Branon discussed earlier this
week how his ball club
needs to put pressure on
the opposition.
There was progress during the second day of the
2013 Gene Bennett Classic
Friday, but not enough to
get that elusive first win
in this year’s tournament
as Post 23 dropped both
games for the second time
in as many days.
“I thought on the positive side, we competed and
that’s what we keep telling
(them) is to compete,”
Branon said. “I thought
we competed all the way
The day started with a
contest at Hatcher Field
against the Kentucky
Baseball Club’s 17 Coffman team. Despite getting
eight runners on base, the
lone run for Post 23 in
a 7-1 defeat came in the
second inning when Austin Howard’s sacrifice fly
scored Alex Shears.
When the morning
turned to afternoon, Post
23 looked to reverse its
fortunes at Branch Rickey
Park against the Kentucky
Colonels. For this game,
Post 23 loaded the bases
in the first inning and had
runners on the corners
in the sixth but came up
empty-handed in both occasions in an 8-0 setback.
“We did get kids in scoring position, just didn’t hit
in the right times,” Branon said. “These teams
play awfully good defense.
Shears hit a ball in the last
inning (against the Colonels) should have been a
For the second-straight
day, Branon praised his
pitching staff for the jobs
they did. Despite Brady
Knittel and Zach Brown
getting the ball to start
both games, the combination of lack of run support
and the seven combined
errors for the day did not
help their cause.
“We just missed some
plays defensively,” Branon
said. “I don’t know if it was
the sun in the outfield but
our outfielders struggled
catching fly balls.”
After going winless in
2012, Post 23 will look to
avoid the same fate Saturday in the final day of
pool play. The first game
of the day will be a noon

INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts linebacker
Robert Mathis wasn’t all
that thrilled being called
for an offside penalty on
the final day of minicamp
this week.
“I’m not exactly happy
with that,” Mathis said
with a laugh.
The official that made
the call? Sarah Thomas,
who is on her way toward
becoming the first permanent female official in the
NFL. It could happen as
early as the 2014 season.
“I’m certain I can’t make
everybody happy,” Thomas
said of that call on Mathis.
Thomas spent three
days at the Colts minicamp
as part of the NFL’s officiating development program, and league officials
say she would be the first
woman to reach NFL fields
through the program. She’s
expected to join the Colts
in training camp next
month and could call some
preseason games this year.
Once completing the
Thomas could get a shot
at the regular season if a
spot becomes available.
That wouldn’t happen until
a current official retires or
leaves the league.
“It’s just something that
happened,” said Dean
Blandino, the NFL’s vice
president of officiating.
“She was in our pipeline
for a while.”
Last year, Shannon Eas-
tin became the first woman
to be an official in both a
preseason and regular-season NFL game. She was a
line judge in the Rams-Lions season opener, among
the replacements hired
during the officials’ lockout.
Eastin, who started officiating high school games
before moving up to colleges, owns a company
called SE Sports Officiating, which trains officials
in football and basketball.
Last summer, the NFL
Referees Association said
Eastin shouldn’t be allowed to work league
games because she has
been in the World Series
of Poker. If Eastin is hired
permanently, the NFL’s
gambling policy would bar
her from participating in
such events.
Thomas is an official
with Conference USA and
has been for the past eight
She still has some steps
to take before she can get
to the NFL. There are interviews and background
checks to be done, and she
will be evaluated during
any NFL camps and preseason games she handles
— as well as during the
upcoming college football
Just like a player, it’s a
big step for an official to go
to the next level.
“It’s similar from when a
players jumps from college
to the NFL,” Blandino said.
“Getting used to that type
of speed is important.”
Reds’ reliever Broxton
examined for sore elbow
Joe Kay
AP Baseball Writer
reliever Jonathan Broxton
was examined Friday for
a sore right elbow, leaving
his status uncertain for a
weekend series against the
Milwaukee Brewers.
Manager Dusty Baker
wound up having to use
Broxton to pitch the 14th
inning of a 6-5 loss at
Wrigley Field on Thursday.
Broxton gave up a walk
and a pair of hits, including
Julio Borbon’s RBI single.
He fell to 2-2 with a 4.33
ERA in 29 appearances.
Baker said Friday that
Broxton’s elbow has been
sore. He’d hoped not to use
him against the Cubs.
“We were trying to wait
to get back from Chicago
to have him examined,”
Baker said.
The Reds signed Broxton to a three-year, $21 million contract in the offseason, planning to use him as
either the set-up man for
Aroldis Chapman or the
closer if Chapman should
move into the starting rotation. Left-handed set-up
man Sean Marshall has
been on the disabled list
since April 10 with a sore
shoulder, leaving the Reds
scrambling for someone to
pitch the eighth.
Baker has resisted bringing Chapman into games
in the eighth inning. The
left-hander went on the
disabled list in 2011 with
a sore shoulder and missed
time near the end of last
season because of a tired
shoulder. Baker wants to
limit him to one-inning appearances.
“He takes longer to get
loose in the bullpen, and
you don’t have that much
time,” Baker said. “I don’t
know if you’ve noticed, but
he’s got a whole routine he
goes through. If I want to
use him in the eighth, he’s
got to start warming up in
the seventh, and then what
do you do if you don’t use
Ohio prep football player
classified as sex offender
Andrew Welsh-Huggins
AP Legal Affairs Writer
school football player convicted of raping a 16-yearold girl was given the
state’s second-toughest sex
offender classification at a
Friday hearing.
The decision by Judge
Thomas Lipps at Jefferson
County Juvenile Court in
Steubenville means Trent
Mays could have to report
to a local sheriff every six
months for 10 years.
Unlike adult sex offenders, however, Mays’ name
won’t be included on publicly accessible websites.
And he can request to have
the sex offender classification removed later based
on his history of rehabilitation.
Lipps on Friday also
agreed with a request from
Mays’ attorneys that the
teen be transferred from
Cuyahoga Hills Juvenile
Correctional Facility near
Cleveland to a southern
Ohio facility that works
with sex offenders.
One of Mays’ attorneys
said after the hearing he
will ask Lipps to release
Mays from state custody if
he successfully completes
the program at Lighthouse
Youth Center-Paint Creek
in Chillicothe.
That would be a departure from the two-year sentence that Lipps handed
Mays in March when he
convicted the teen of raping the West Virginia girl
after an alcohol-fueled
house party last summer.
Mays, 17, also was convicted of using his phone to
take a photo of the naked
underage girl.
“The whole purpose of
the juvenile system is rehabilitation,”
defense attorney Adam Nemann said Friday. “If he’s
in compliance and does
everything he’s asked to
do, as a juvenile he ought
to be returned to his family and attempt to piece his
life back together.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday,
June 15, 2013:
This year you work on your
patience. You will experience a lot of
frustration as you discover the difficult
nature of this virtue. Sometimes your
frustration evolves to anger. Be careful. You have a lot of self-discipline —
use it appropriately. If you are single,
expect many ups and downs in a new
relationship. The person who indulges
you needs a second look. If you are
attached, be more patient with your
sweetie. There is no need to have
futile disagreements. VIRGO gets the
job done, even if it is too slow for your
The Stars Show the Kind of Day
You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive;
3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHH Others might wonder what is
going on, as you seem to fuss about
nearly everything. Go out and handle
what you must, and you will feel a
great sense of relief. Others will smile
to have the sunnier side of your personality appear. Tonight: Invite others
to your place for a party.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHHH You generally feel uptight
about spending; however, you likely
will accept a costly invitation. Honor
your needs first, because that is the
only way something will work. Make
yourself at ease, and everyone will
become far more jubilant. Tonight:
Kick up your heels.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHH Whether you’re snoozing
or getting into a project, you can be
found at home. It might be a good
idea to attend a gathering later in the
day. You also could ask a friend to
help you with a project. You don’t do
well without company for any length of
time. Tonight: Make it easy.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHHH Keep conversations moving. Your naturally nurturing ways
draw others out. Do not feel like you
have to fix a situation or come up with
a solution. Others simply like to be
with you; they thoroughly enjoy your
feedback and upbeat personality.
Tonight: Catch up on others’ news.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HHH Do not stress yourself out.
Relax with friends, and worry less
about the potential problems in your
life. Stay present, and before you
know it, you will be enjoying a quirky
friend. This person almost always
chooses to head in the opposite direction of the crowd. Tonight: Your treat.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HHHH Refuse to get involved in a
power struggle or an angry exchange.
You could find a workable solution,
but you might decide that it just isn’t
worth getting in the middle of an
uncomfortable situation. Tonight: As
you like. Someone is only too happy
to please you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHH You might want some free
time to be by yourself right now. To
be fair, you have pushed very hard
in the past few weeks. A loved one
also would appreciate time alone with
you. Know that you probably will not
be good company right now. Tonight:
Indulge yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHHH Keep reaching out to
someone you care a lot about. Avoid
getting involved in an argument with
others, as there appears to be a tiff
going on among several close friends
or loved ones. Flex with the moment,
and life will be more exciting as a
result. Tonight: Where your friends
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHH Tension builds as you start
thinking about an older relative or your
many responsibilities. Handle what
you must; otherwise, you won’t be
able to relax. You might discover that
you have to deal with an unexpected
cost. Use your skills to talk the price
down. Tonight: Out late.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHHH Your ability to get past a
problem usually is strong, but right
now you could find yourself having
words with a neighbor or relative.
Is there another way? Revise your
thinking, and try to take a different
approach. You just might see a new
path. Tonight: Join friends for dinner.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHH Listen to feedback, and
know full well what will be necessary
to make a situation work. You are
exuberant and sure of yourself. Still,
make it a point to cater to others a bit
more. At times, you might take on a
defiant attitude. Tonight: Love the one
you are with.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHHH Others clearly need and
want to have control right now. You
have nothing to lose, so resist getting
tense or looking for answers. Just
go along for the ride. You might gain
more understanding of the person you
are with if you do. Tonight: People
surround you. Enjoy!

when my chances of talking with him that day diminished even more.
But while he was working at the factory, one of
his rituals slowly got me
on the path to my current
profession. Every day, he
would bring home a daily
newspaper and I would do
my best to read and understand each edition as I
leafed through it cover to
cover. Naturally, I would
flip to the sports section
and take it with me everywhere, even if he had not
read it that day.
As I grew older and
started to play tackle football and basketball during
the times where I didn’t
have baseball, my parents
were there. As he switched
from one factory job to
another and to straight
nights, he would still find
ways to teach all three
of his offspring whatever
he could about what they
were involved with — athletically or otherwise.
His years of sacrifices in
the factories have paid off
as he is using his undergraduate degree as a crop
insurance adjuster. While
he works during the day,
I am now working second shift. Although I am
not married nor a father,
I wonder what those days
will be like if I am in this
same field.
Ironic, isn’t it? I just
hope that I can be half the
man my father was when I
was growing up and what
he is today.
So as I have reflected
on the past, I am blessed
about the present as he is
still around. This October
will mark 10 years since he
lost his father and I miss
papaw every day, just as he
As I conclude, I would
like for input from readers
on how everyone’s parent
or parents — not just the
fathers — impacted them
in sports. In a future column, local athletes can
express how much of an
impact their parents had
on them, whether it was
in a positive or negative
I am glad to not have
helicopter parents because
they made more than
enough sacrifices during
my childhood. In the end,
it worked out the right way.
Happy Father’s Day.

both lost their lives at the
same track within a few
months of each other. I was
a fan of Petty, I thought he
had the talent to be a star.
The impact of his death
stayed with me until February 2001.
Coming out of turn four
on the final lap of the Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt
and Sterling Marlin got
together, which sent Earnhardt’s car into the outside
retaining wall. He was pro-
nounced dead a few hours
later at a local hospital.
I grew up as an Earnhardt fan and for most of
my childhood, I thought
the man was invincible.
I learned a cruel lesson
about sports that day, I
learned to appreciate athletes and certain teams for
their greatness (relative to
sports achievements), and
I learned how to live in the
I know NASCAR is a
love/hate sport. Either
people love racing or they
don’t, believe me I understand. But regardless of
your feelings, race car drivers deserve some respect.
Next time you watch a
sport, any sport, appreciate the greatness in front
of your eyes. Our kids
need to grow up learning
to appreciate the personal
sacrifices it takes to reach
higher levels in sports,
not taking the images of
achievement on the television screen for granted.
My son is only two years
old. I’m not sure who he
will grow up idolizing, but
whoever it is, I will teach
him to appreciate the athletes for all of their sacrifice.
I’m sure my wife will
remind me of this column
the next time I swear at the
TV, and yes it will happen
again, but all I can say is
— I’m a fan, which comes
from the word fanatic, and
as a die hard fan, we tend
to act stupid.
