Kasich to sell big ideas State of State to promote plans Check out this Wednesday’s iN75 Get inspired for your home renovation projects at the Miami County Home and Gift Show this weekend at the Miami Valley Centre Mall.

COLUMBUS (AP) — By timing the address to follow his major budget, tax reform and school funding proposals, Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s annual State of the State speech Tuesday in Lima will feel more like a stump speech for 2014 than the typical litany of big policy initiatives. The Republican governor will use the speech to promote his latest ideas for the state, rather than announce them.

He’s said as much. “For those that are thinking that they want to come to Lima on the 19th for a whole bunch of new things in the State of the KASICH State, don’t

come,” he said in unveiling his $63.2 billion, two-year budget this month. “Because I think we’ve got it all out on the field right now.” For the second consecutive year, Kasich is taking the address outside Columbus, and outside the Statehouse, where pro-labor protesters packed the halls and sent up disruptive shouts during his first address in 2011. Last year, Kasich made history

when he first gave the speech elsewhere, picking the Democratic and union stronghold of Steubenville to highlight positives he said were taking place in economically hard-hit eastern Ohio, particularly surrounding K12 education and oil and gas exploration. With Lima, in northwest Ohio, Kasich has found a manufacturing hub with significantly improved employment, which also sits in the heart of reliably Republican farm country. The

White House looks for ‘balanced way’ to fix the sequester

Fire victims remembered Survivors of a 2003 nightclub fire that killed 100 people and relatives of those killed huddled together in bitter cold Sunday at the site of the blaze to mark the 10th anniversary of it. Some brought flowers and paid their respects at the handmade crosses that dot the site for each person who died. Others cried and spoke of missing their loved ones and the difficulty of moving past such trauma.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is concerned about the effect that looming, drastic across-the-board budget cuts will have on the middle class, his new chief of staff said Sunday. Congressional Republicans predicted the cuts would start as scheduled next month and blamed Obama not only for doing little to stop them but for the idea itself. The cuts, called the sequester, would drain $85 billion from the government’s budget over the coming seven months. Actual cuts may be around PHOTO BY KATE RENTZ Members of the band D.C.

Fire victims remembered Ceremony honors nightclub victims WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Survivors of a 2003 nightclub fire that killed 100 people and relatives of those killed huddled together in bitter cold Sunday at the site of the blaze to mark the 10th anniversary of it. Some brought flowers and paid their respects at the handmade crosses that dot the site for each person who died. Others cried and spoke of missing their loved ones and the difficulty of moving past such trauma. “People that weren’t here really don’t understand why we can’t let this stuff go. I was 30 seconds away from dying,” said Walter Castle Jr., 39, a survivor who suffered thirddegree burns in his lungs, throat and bronchial tubes. He said he lost many friends and was in counseling until 2009. Recently, as the 10th anniversary approached, he began having terrible nightmares and had to go back into counseling. “It’s just very tough,” he said. The anniversary of the

The fire broke out when pyrotechnics for the rock band Great White ignited flammable packing foam that had been installed in the club as soundproofing. Last month, a fire at a nightclub in Brazil killed more than 230 people under circumstances that were eerily similar: A band’s pyrotechnic display set fire to soundproofing foam.

new leader of the Ohio Senate that’s sometimes block Kasich’s plans, President Keith Faber of Celina, lives nearby. Located about 80 miles south of Toledo, Lima was built around factories that made locomotives and school buses. Heavy industry still drives the city, home to an oil refinery, a Ford Motor Co. engine plant and the nation’s only tank manufacturing plant. Like many of Ohio’s industrial cities, poverty is a problem in some neigh-

borhoods, but the city’s unemployment has been nearly cut in half from two years ago and now stands at 7 percent. President Barack Obama’s campaign rally just days before the election last November marked the first time a sitting Democratic president visited Lima since Harry Truman stopped there in 1948. In the end, Obama’s rival, Republican Mitt Romney, handily won Allen County last year, scoring 61 percent of the vote to Obama’s 37 percent.

This should be a question where we ask ourselves, what is most important to the economy, what is most important to the middle class families of this country, and that’s the way the president is going to do this.” South Carolina’s Sen. Lindsay Graham was among the Republicans on Sunday who recalled the president’s position on the sequester in the fall. “The president prom-

Angela Bogart, who was 19 when her mother, Jude Henault, was killed in the fire, said she has come to know and understand her mother more in the 10 years since she died, espe-



Among those who spoke Sunday was former Gov. Don Carcieri, who took office the month before the fire and still gets choked up when speaking about it. He remembered the days families waited at a hotel for word that their loved ones’ remains had been identified, and the anger everyone felt, asking how the tragedy could have happened. But he also remembered how people in Rhode

I hear her voice wherever I go,” she said. “When I walk handin-hand with my little girl, my mother is holding her other hand.” The ceremony also featured musical performances, a reading of the names of the people who died and 100 seconds of silence. While somber, the annual gathering at the fire site took on a more hopeful tone this year than in years past because a foundation set up to build a permanent memorial secured ownership of the site in September after years of trying. On Sunday, the Station Fire Memorial Foundation released final plans for the memorial. They call for a 30-foothigh entrance gate topped by an Aeolian harp. Wind passing through the harp will create music, a reminder that it was music that brought people together that night. The permanent memorial will include an individual memorial for each person who died and commemorate the survivors, first responders and those who helped care for families of the dead and survivors in the weeks and months after the fire. It will also include a pavilion as a gathering place.

ised in the campaign sequestration would not happen. Now, he is allowing it to happen,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” “He’s the commanderin-chief and on his watch, we’re going to begin to unravel the finest military in the history of the world, at a time when we need it most,” Graham, a member of the Armed Services Committee added. “If you want to look at ways to find $1.2 trillion in savings over the next decade, let’s look at Obamacare. Let’s don’t destroy the military and just cut blindly across the board. There are many ways to do this.” However, Graham offered no specifics.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 Angus Young (from AC/DC), because he started at a young age with his brothers.” Seth’s first live appearance on stage came with Luckey and Christian in front of hundreds of people at the Miami Valley Music Festival. Canan debuted with “Sweet Child O’Mine” by Guns N’ Roses. “I was so nervous, they told me I had five minutes before I had to go on,” Seth recalled. “I was like, ‘oh gosh, I want to throw up.’ But then I got up there, and as soon as I started it, I felt good and it was a really good feeling, especially when everyone started cheering at the end. It was a really good moment when I thought I would really like to do this.” “Seth, at the time, it’s just like he’s our kid brother,” Derrick said. “But then like, he’d be ripping every single AC/DC song. He would just be like, ‘I looked at this for five minutes today, how does this sound?’ I was just like, ‘well, considering how you already have it down perfect and flawless, I guess that’s pretty good.’” Listen to one of his guitar solos, and you will understand the hype. Even Richard said that everything started to click for the group when Seth joined the fold. “The YouTube filming of “It’s A Game” was really like Seth’s coming out party,” Richard said. “Seth got up on stage, and it was was obvious that he’s real-

ly not scared of playing in front of people. Then it’s like, ‘wow he’s even better in front of a crowd of people than when he is just jamming in the garage.’ That’s when I realized we were just going to be rolling with this. “That’s when this band really, as far as who we are now, that’s when we really began forming together.” D.C. Connection’s shows feature of wide variety of covers from several different genres, ranging from Johnny Cash to The Black Keys to The Lumineers. The group does, however, reserve half of its set list for its own material. “Even our originals cover a wide variety of genres of music,” Richard said. “It’s like we don’t really even know what to call ourselves, because we listen to so much different music, and as a musician, that’s the best thing you can do is listen to anything from classical to blues. It’s going to broaden your mind.” “The ‘Big’ Rock” is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. A hard copy of

Connection has an upcoming show scheduled for The Hershey Bar in Bradford on Saturday. The band also will play at Y’all’s Country Club in Covington on March 8-9, and will be featured at Stillwater Beach’s 100th anniversary party on July 20. As far as longterm goals and dreams of fame go, the bandmates agreed that when it comes to their careers in the business, there is nothing more important to them than getting their music out there and letting it be heard by the people. “I mean, yeah, I want to play in front of as many people as I can, but I don’t care if it’s five or 500 or 5,000 or five million, it’s to play for the people,” Luckey said. “There’s no better rush in my life than going out there and playing my drums and making somebody smile. “I remember when I was younger and in my early teens, it was all ‘I want to be famous, I want to travel the world.’ As I got older, it became less about the money and more just about playing out in front of people, and seeing people enjoy how we interpret music, what we do with our talent.” And that philosophy has always been at the core of D.C. Connection.

President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

Sometimes simply called “JFK,” John Fitzgerald Kennedy became one of the country’s youngest and most popular presidents. He guided the nation through the early 1960s, handling conflicts with other nations and working to improve the lives of all Americans. The second of nine children, Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 in Brookline, Mass. He grew up in a wealthy, Catholic, Irish American family with a strong political background. His grandfather, John Fitzgerald, was the mayor of Boston. His father, Joseph Kennedy, was a successful businessman who later served on several government commissions and as an ambassador. Although he was often sick as a child, Kennedy loved sports such as swimming, sailing and tennis. He often competed against his brothers in touch football games. As a teenager, he went to a boarding school in Connecticut where he played football and basketball. Kennedy also was a bright student, excelling at English and history. In 1936, he finished boarding school and went to college at Harvard University. While at Harvard, Kennedy hurt his back playing football. He had trouble with his back for the rest of his life. This did not prevent him, however, from joining the U.S. Navy in 1940. Kennedy sailed in the South Pacific during World War II. He was in charge of a patrol boat called the PT-109. In 1943, Kennedy’s boat was attacked by a Japanese ship.

He was hurt in the attack, but was able to rescue some of his crew. For this heroic act, Kennedy received several medals. After the war, Kennedy decided to become a politician. He was successful in his first attempt, becoming elected to a seat in the House of Representatives in 1946. After serving three terms, Kennedy was elected to the Senate in 1952. He married Jacqueline Lee Bouvier the following year. In 1954, Kennedy had back surgery. During his recovery, he wrote a book about famous Senators called Profiles in Courage. The book later received the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 1957. He had other good news that year – his wife gave birth to their first child, Caroline, in November. Kennedy decided to run for president. He became the Democratic candidate for the 1960 presidential election and ran against Republican Richard Nixon, the country’s Vice President. Kennedy narrowly beat Nixon in the elec-

U.S. Presidents Word Search

tion, becoming the first Catholic president of the United States. A few weeks after the election, his son John F. Kennedy Jr. was born. During his presidency, Kennedy worked hard to end racial segregation – the practice of keeping white people and black people separated. Kennedy also proposed new ways to improve civil rights. Wanting to help others in the world, he created the Peace Corps. The corps sends American volunteers to different countries to provide assistance to those in need. Kennedy also sought to learn more about the universe through his support of space exploration. Some of the greatest challenges Kennedy faced as a president involved the fight against communism. Communism is a form of government that believes that the whole nation should own all of its land and businesses. Kennedy oversaw the failed invasion of communist Cuba (called the “Bay of Pigs Invasion”) in 1961. The next

year, he found himself in a standoff with the leader of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev. The Soviet Union, which was the world’s largest communist nation, had set up missile bases in Cuba. Kennedy discovered their plan and took action to stop them. In October 1962, it looked like the United States and the Soviet Union might go to war over these bases. Kennedy, however, was able to resolve what is now called the Cuban Missile Crisis peacefully. Sadly, Kennedy’s time as president was short. On Nov. 22, 1963, he was shot during a trip to Dallas, Texas, while riding in a parade with his wife. Kennedy was taken to a nearby hospital, but the doctors were unable to save him. The entire nation mourned the loss of their much loved president. Thousands of people traveled to Washington, D.C., for his funeral and for a chance to say good-bye to a heroic leader.

Decorate grocery bags for Earth Day! Local stores will distribute the paper bags to shoppers the week of April 21-27

The Earth Day Groceries Project gives students a chance to create their own environmental messages, using paper grocery bags as their medium. The Miami County Solid Waste District/Green Gals is working with the Kroger in Troy to provide the bags. All a school has to do to participate in this free activity is to designate a coordinator and fill out the request form below. Requests should be made no later than Friday, March 1 by calling Cindy Bach at 440-3488, Ext. 8705 or sending an email to or faxing to 937-335-4208. The paper grocery bags will be delivered to your school the week of March 12th (hopefully). Once the bags are decorated, someone from your school should take the bags to either the Kroger Store in Piqua or Troy. The store will distribute the bags to shoppers during the week of April 21-27. Hundreds of schools nationwide have been involved in this project for years. Last year, almost 3,000 bags were decorated in Miami County. Students can be a as creative as they want in sharing their thoughts on how to respect the Earth. For more information and for ideas on how to decorate the bags, take a look at the website:

Question: Do you think President Barack Obama did a good or bad job in his State of the Union address?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News. Watch for a new poll question

in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.


“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL The Commercial Appeal, Memphis, Tenn., on no breaks for Congress: Congress likes to impose draconian consequences — the fiscal cliff, sequestration, national default — on itself, and unfortunately on the rest of us as well, for failing to do what it’s supposed to do. The latest such gimmick is the “no budget, no pay” proviso. The idea is that none of the lawmakers will get a paycheck until both the House and Senate pass a budget this year. For the senators, it’s not an idle threat because they haven’t passed a budget in four years. But the threat is somewhat mitigated because so many members of Congress are wealthy enough that they can get along without their government paycheck and, besides, they get all the money back at the end of the congressional session. No member will starve. However, David Walker, a former U.S. comptroller general who leads the nonprofit Comeback America Initiative, has come up with a promising proposal to get the solons to do their work: “No deal, no break.” The public is generally unaware how much time off Congress takes. Walker notes it plans to adjourn As I for the equivalent of a full month this spring while See It we confront at least two critical deadlines: March ■ The Troy 27, when the government faces a shutdown if temDaily News porary funding resolutions aren’t renewed, and welcomes May 19, when the debt ceiling will rise.

The president’s speech was unusually long — well more than an hour — and uncommonly poignant even by his own high standards. It ended with an emotional call to reduce gun violence with laws to enhance background checks, curtail “straw purchases” that allow criminals to get guns and to stop the sale of “weapons of war” that facilitate mass carnage and put law enforcement at a disadvantage. He invoked the names of victims of violence to urge lawmakers to vote on these measures. Obama used the ultimate bully pulpit to its optimal effect. Less convincing were the president’s expressions of commitment to bipartisanship and deficit reduction — neither of which has been a hallmark of his first term or his post-re-election rhetoric. His claim that none of the proposals he laid out would add “a single dime” to the federal deficit defies common sense. Worthy as those programs might be, guarantees of universal preschool and government investments in struggling communities, infrastructure improvements and myriad other government endeavors are going to cost money. He implored Washington to move away from its habit of veering from one manufactured crisis to another. … But it must be noted that the White House has drawn its own lines in the sand that have made it difficult for the two parties to reach agreement. The big priorities Obama laid out were sound; like it or not, he will need Republican help to achieve them.

Leftover fridge food is a recipe for disaster Fuel prices hover between $3-$4 a gallon, crowding the $4 end of the scale. DP&L continues to charge us for heat. Grocery stores refuse to negotiate prices and not a physician around here will trade a live chicken for a tetanus shot. The trickle-down theory of economics appears to be all theory and no trickle. Given the uncertainties of the financial system, consumers everywhere are looking to pinch every penny until Mr. Lincoln cries “Uncle!” In light of the plight of the cash-strapped, someone has written a book. Naturally. Name a need and someone will write a book to address it. If it has to do with weight loss, rocky relationships or saving money many, many someones will write a book. In this case, the general thrust of the book in question is to save money by not wasting food. (Duh!) More specifically, it promotes making soup out of whatever leftovers you have in your

Marla Boone Troy Daily News Columnist refrigerator. This seems like a very thin premise for a book, but then maybe the soup is thin, too. The only thing amazing about the book is the fact that the author is trying to pass this off as a new idea. Having been reared in a — shall we say — extremely frugal household, the notion of recycling leftovers was ingrained early. It simply never occurred to me that “leftovers” was not a synonym for “you’ll be seeing this again in 48 hours or less.” My husband says (mostly) fondly of his current father-inlaw “Lou doesn’t have the first dollar he ever made, but he knows where it is.”

— Douglas Kirk Troy

But with all due respect to the book’s author, I’m not quite convinced soup is the way to go. Right at this moment, our house could offer steamed cabbage-fried fish-and one piece of dubious looking pizza soup. Last week, gourmands could have enjoyed red beans and rice-scrambled eggs — and limp lettuce soup. For one memorable evening we could have served a small pot of lemon meringue pie-pork chop soup. It seems less an efficient way to dispose of food than it does a method to ensure against repeat dinner guests. A friend of mine wanted to give it a try. I do not recommend visiting her until she has gone through her entire stock of Ghiradelli chocolate-andFriskies Fancy Feast soup. To quote the always irritating Dr. Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory, there’s nothing fancy about that. And besides, who ever heard of leftover chocolate? A person who possesses not only an over-loaded refrigera-

tor but also Internet access could, of course, Google the answer to the leftover problem. You can Google the answer to any problem. And, as we all know, if it’s on the Internet it has to be true. There is, it almost goes without saying, an app for this. If you are smart enough to run a smart phone, the Gojee app is another solution. (This seems like over-kill. If you are smart enough to run a smart phone you should be smart enough to empty your fridge on your own.) Intelligence level notwithstanding, this app lets you enter your refrigerator contents and it will spit out a “great” recipe using what you have on hand. The quotation marks are mine because not all “greats” are created equal. The app is free. The Mylanta is not.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your daughter Dear Annie: Our daughter, "Mattie," is 42 years old. She has been married for 10 years and has two school-age children. Due to her husband's work transfers, Mattie twice was left alone with the children for several months while she tried to sell the house and her husband moved to the new location. The first time it happened, things worked out OK, but the second time, Mattie started drinking quite heavily. We didn't find out until she had seizures, lost a lot of weight and ended up in the hospital close to death with severe liver damage. She pulled out of it, but now we worry that she might be in the same situation. We visited her over the holidays and suspect she has started drinking again. She also seems very depressed. Her husband doesn't seem to recognize the problem. As parents, do we get involved? If so, do we confront Mattie or talk to her husband? — Terrified for Our Daughter Dear Terrified: Please don't be afraid to speak to Mattie if you think she is drinking again. It is a serious matter, both physically and emotionally, and needs to be addressed. You also should speak to her husband. He may be doing more than you realize, or he may be in denial or completely oblivious. Contact Al-Anon ( for assistance and suggestions. Dear Annie: When my mother was dying of cancer, she chose to die at home and not at my "pious" sister's house. My sister resented this and made only brief visits during Mom's final days. The day the hospice nurse said Mom would probably die within hours, my sister stopped by and then left for a week's planned vacation. We postponed the funeral until she returned, and she showed up to the visitation in a souvenir Tshirt. After the funeral, Sis, as executor, didn't want my brother or me to go through Mom's possessions. Instead, she had an auction, and we had to bid on closed boxes. Many of the things we know belonged to Mom did not show up, and somehow, my sister's name got on the deed to the family farm. There has been no accounting of the income from the auction, and when we asked, Sis became angry. The final straw was that my mother wrote a personal letter to me but did not get around to mailing it. Sis found it, made copies and passed it out to everyone but me. I would like the original, but Sis says, "Finders, keepers." Sis now wants us to get together and pretend there are no problems. This is putting my "Christian attitude" to the test. Should I turn a very bruised cheek and pretend all is well for the sake of family unity? — Confused in Missouri Dear Missouri: Your sister certainly has been less than forthcoming, and the business with the personal letter is rather nasty. Did your mother have an attorney? If so, there should be an accounting of where the money went and what your sister was entitled to as executor. But you may need to sue in order to get the information, so decide what it's worth to you. It is likely to cause a permanent estrangement, and you still may not get what you are hoping for: your sister's remorse and an apology. Our condolences. Dear Annie: "Want To Do the Right Thing" wants to celebrate his parents' 50th anniversary but can't afford the restaurant and wants guests to pay for their own meals. We all want things we cannot afford. Most parents would not enjoy knowing their children are depriving themselves for a big party. Instead, arrange for a nice family photo that would be treasured. Then take your parents out to a lovely lunch or dinner. — R. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. SATURDAY’S SOLUTION:


Sound Off: Waiting to get sick in the waiting room? Dear Readers: Here is this week’s Sound Off, about sick children in a doctor’s waiting room: “My daughter’s pediatrician has the waiting room broken up into two sections. There is a ’well’ waiting area and a ’sick’ waiting area. When my daughter is sick and I take her to the doctor, I am the only one sitting in the ’sick’ area. Everyone else has his or her sick kids in the other part of the waiting room, contaminating it! I am sure I am not the only one who follows the guidelines and gets frustrated by this. — Sonya in Colorado” Oh my! The doctor’s office is where you should be safe from

Hints from Heloise Columnist germs; however, it’s NOT safe, in many cases. Arm yourself with hand sanitizer or wipes. If you are really upset, ask the receptionist if there is somewhere you can wait AWAY from all of the sick children. — Heloise ONE-POT CHICKEN RECIPE Dear Heloise: I remember you had a recipe for “One-Pot

Chicken,” I believe is what you called it. Could you reprint that recipe? — Janie in Utah Yes, I can! Heloise’s One-Pot Chicken, Potatoes and Peas is easy to make, low-cost and delicious. I would be happy to print it. You need: 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup diced potato (1/2-inch cubes) 1 clove garlic, minced 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley 2 tablespoons chopped celery 1 cup water 1 bay leaf 1/8 teaspoon thyme Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 cup canned peas 2 3-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts Take a large, heavy skillet and heat it. Add onion and potato, and cook over medium heat until they start to brown. Add remaining ingredients except peas and chicken. Bring to a boil and stir. Add chicken and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for about 12 minutes. Add peas and continue cooking until liquid is reduced, about 5 minutes. Serve and garnish with parsley. I have put together a Heloise pamphlet with all of my family’s and friends’ main-dish recipes.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The Moon is in your sign today, dancing beautifully with fair Venus, which makes you social and eager to explore more of life. Do anything that broadens your horizons. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel secretly pleased about something today, and this could be because you sense that your security or financial situation will improve because of the support of others. Let’s hope you’re right. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) All your dealings with members of the general public will be positive today. Similarly, relationships with partners and close friends will be smooth. Enjoy some lighthearted fun! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) On the whole, this is an easygoing day at work; however, avoid making important decisions until tomorrow. Just go with the flow and keep things light with co-workers. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Do something that makes you feel like you’re getting more out of life today. You want to learn something new or have a little adventure. (Just avoid major purchases.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Discussions about shared property, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others will go smoothly today. Nevertheless, this is a poor day to sign documents or agree to anything important. Wait until tomorrow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) With the Moon opposite your sign today, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Just accept this. It’s not a big deal. In fact, people are cooperative. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Things will go smoothly at work today, especially with co-workers. You can boost your income or make inroads with others; however, postpone important decisions until tomorrow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a fun, creative day! Enjoy good times with others. Sports events, playful activities with children and romantic escapes will delight. (Guaranteed.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Focus on home, family and domestic activities today. Discussions with a female relative, especially Mom, will be significant. Keep things light. Postpone major expenditures and important decisions until tomorrow. YOU BORN TODAY You are courageous, daring and have a fantastic imagination. You’re tough and determined, and are not afraid to break the rules. Many of you are competitive, and because of this, you do best on your own. You need stimulating goals. In the year ahead, something you have been involved with for nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, Feb. 18, the 49th day of 2013. There are 316 days left in the year. This is Presidents Day. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 18, 1913, Mexican President Francisco I. Madero and Vice President Jose Maria Pino Suarez were arrested during a military coup (both resigned their positions the next day, and both were shot to death on Feb. 22). On this date: • In 1861, Jefferson Davis was sworn in as provisional president of the Confederate States of America in Montgomery, Ala.

• In 1885, Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was published in the U.S. for the first time. • In 1930, photographic evidence of Pluto (now designated a “dwarf planet”) was discovered by Clyde W. Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz. • In 1970, the “Chicago Seven” defendants were found not guilty of conspiring to incite riots at the 1968 Democratic national convention; five were convicted of violating the AntiRiot Act of 1968 (those convictions were later reversed). • In 1977, the space shuttle Enterprise, sitting atop a Boeing 747,

went on its debut “flight” above the Mojave Desert. • In 2001, auto racing star Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a crash at the Daytona 500; he was 49. • One year ago: A funeral service was held for pop star Whitney Houston at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., a week after her death at age 48. • Today’s Birthdays: Author Toni Morrison is 82. Singer Yoko Ono is 80. Actress Cybill Shepherd is 63. Singer Juice Newton is 61. Actor John Travolta is 59. Game show host Vanna White is 56. Actor Matt Dillon is 49. Rapper Dr. Dre is 48. Actress Molly Ringwald is 45.

MANADO, Indonesia (AP) — Rescuers found five more bodies in the mud after flooding and landslides in northern Indonesia, bringing the death toll to 15 after the disaster that sent thousands fleeing for safe ground, police and witnesses said early today. Crying relatives watched in horror as residents and rescuers pulled out muddy corpses on Sunday from seven hamlets devastated by landslides and floods in Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi province, while more than 1,000 houses were flooded by an overflowing river. Authorities struggled to get tractors and bulldozers over washed-out roads hours after torrential rain sent mud and rocks crashing into hilly areas of Manado. Hundreds of police, soldiers and residents were digging through the debris with their bare hands, shovels and hoes. North Sulawesi police chief Brig. Gen. Dicky Atotoy said 14 bodies were pulled from the mud and wreckage of crumpled homes, including three children aged between 3 and 10, and another was found in water late Sunday. About 8,100 people fled to temporary shelters. Women wailed as a mud-caked body was put

Zelnick making return trip to state Troy sophomore sets 2 school records Staff Reports Troy sophomore Michelle Zelnick had a record-breaking day Saturday at the Division I Southwest Ohio District Championships. Zelnick took second in the 200 individual medley (2:04.34) and placed third in the 100 backstroke (56.75 seconds) — both of which are new Troy High School records. Once again, Zelnick broke a record previously held by her sister Pam, who set the 200 IM mark (2:08.70) on Jan. 15, 2006. Zelnick’s backstroke record was

held by Kami Matthews (57.94 seconds), who was a state champion in the 1980’s. Zelnick’s time in the 200 IM ranks fourth in the state and her time in the 100 back ranks seventh. “Shelly has amazed everyone,” Troy swimming coach Chris Morgan said. “She chose two different events and made both of them as a top seven in the state. Being fourth in the IM and seventh in the back as a sophomore is a great feat in itself. In the backstroke, she beat the state champion at district (Emily Slade).”

MIAMI COUNTY In the 200 free relay, Zelnick, Meredith Orozco, Cassie Rice and Mackenzie Rice placed 22nd (1:49.42). “They had a great season,” Morgan said. “I’m very proud of every single one of them.” Troy’s boys 200 medley relay team of Tommy Jackson, Matt Roetter, Joel Evans and Will Armstrong placed 21st (1:45.45). Jackson finished 26th in the 100 backstroke (57.52 seconds) and got 28th overall in the 100 butterfly (55.86). Armstrong was 34th in the 500 freestyle (5:42.63). In the 200 free relay,

Buckeyes blasted No. 20 Wisconsin routs No. 13 OSU, 71-49 MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Ohio State’s latest defeat was more than just disappointing to coach Thad Matta. It left him at a loss to explain what’s wrong with his team. No. 20 Wisconsin shot a season-best 53 percent Sunday in a 71-49 rout of the 13th-ranked Buckeyes. It was the third defeat in four games for Ohio State, with the lone win a lackluster performance against Northwestern. “It didn’t work in terms of getting this team not to win the game, but to compete at the level we need to compete at to give us a chance,” Matta said about how he prepared his team.

Current players reflect as Jordan turns 50

LOS ANGELES (AP) — John Merrick never allowed himself to think about winning at Riviera. Not when he was a kid attending his local PGA Tour event. Not when he was at UCLA and could play the fabled course. And certainly not late Sunday afternoon in a playoff when he faced a daunting 3-iron shot under a row of eucalyptus trees, and his opponent was in the middle of the

Michael Jordan turned 50 on Sunday, giving this year’s All-Stars a chance to reflect on his illustrious career and how much he still means to the sport. In a weekend filled with the NBA’s greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about. Though he hasn’t played since the 2002-03 season, Jordan’s influence still permeates the league and its players. See Page 14.

around offensively for Wisconsin (18-8, 9-4 Big Ten) after Thursday, when the Badgers went scoreless over the final 5 minutes in regulation and then managed just four points in overtime while losing at Minnesota. The 39 first-half points tied their best opening period in Big Ten play this season and were only 10 fewer than the Badgers scored for the entire game at Ohio State in a Jan. 29 loss. Matta said it was just one of those games when the Badgers could do no wrong, perhaps best summed up in the second half when Wisconsin guard Traevon Jackson banked in an off-balance shot as the clock shot expired.

Even so, Matta said he had no explanation for how poorly Ohio State (18-7, 8-5) played on defense. “We’ve seen the results if we’re not going to play defensively. We’re not a good basketball team,” Matta said. “If we’re going to rely on trying to outscore people, that’s not going to happen.” The win kept Wisconsin tied with Michigan for third in the conference, two games behind leaders Indiana and Michigan State. Ohio State dropped into fifth place. Wisconsin put Ohio State in a hole early and never let the Buckeyes climb out of it.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Danica Patrick has made history before as a woman and a racer, in Indianapolis and Japan. The spotlight is nothing new. But never has it been this bright before. Patrick won the Daytona 500 pole Sunday, becoming the first woman to secure the top spot for any race in NASCAR’s premier circuit. It’s by far the biggest achievement of her stock-car career. “I was brought up to be the fastest driver, not the fastest girl,” she said. “That was instilled in me from very young, from the beginning. Then I feel like thriving in those moments, where the pressure’s on, has also been a help for me. I also feel like I’ve been lucky in my career to be with good teams and have good people around me. I don’t think any of it would have been possible without that. “For those reasons, I’ve been lucky enough to make history, be the first woman to do many things. I really just hope that I don’t stop doing that. We have a lot more history to make. We are excited to do it.” Her latest stamp in the history books came with a lap at 196.434 mph around Daytona International Speedway. ) Patrick went out eighth in the qualifying session, then had to wait about two hours as 37 fellow drivers tried to take her spot. Only four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon even came close to knocking her off. Gordon was the only other driver who topped 196 mph in qualifying. He locked up the other guaranteed spot in next week’s season-opening Daytona 500. “It’s great to be a part of history with Danica being on the pole,” said Gordon, who joked that at least he was the fastest guy. “I think we all know how popular she is, what this will do for our sport. Congratulations to her. Proud to be on there with her.”

Buckeyes ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 The Badgers took control with an 18-0 run in the first half that lasted more than 7 minutes and put them up 24-6. At one point in the run, Matta called timeout and said he lost it with his players, asking in bewilderment what was going on. Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan, meanwhile, got to see what his team can do when it finally shoots well. The Badgers shot 10 percentage points better than

their season average. “The guys got good looks, and they went down,” Ryan said. “They didn’t change anything. I’d like to say we did, that we found something.” Everything was a struggle on the offensive end for Ohio State, though. DeShaun Thomas led the Buckeyes with 18 points, though he needed 17 shots to do it and only got to the foul line once. Sam Thompson added 10 points while Aaron Craft was

held to four on 2-of-9 shooting and the team shot less than 38 percent from the field. That included 3 of 12 from 3-point range. Ohio State had only six assists and trailed by 17 points at halftime. That was its largest deficit at the break since March 22, 2007, when Ohio State trailed Tennessee by the same margin but went on to win 85-84. “This is on us,” Craft said. “Coaches can’t get us

ready to play. The responsibility is on us as individual players. We’ve got to go and bring teammates with us. We can’t play like this in February. This is beginning-of-the-year mistakes and mental errors.” Wisconsin, by comparison, was a model of efficiency on offense. The Badgers had 16 assists on 29 field goals and were 7 of 19 from 3-point range. Ben Brust and Jared Berggren each scored 15 points to lead the Badgers,

while Brust also had 11 rebounds. Sam Dekker came off the bench to score 13 for Wisconsin, and Jackson added 10. Wisconsin built its first 20-point lead at 34-14 on Dekker’s 3-pointer with less than 4 minutes to go in the first half and led by as many as 26 in the second half. Berggren said the Badgers didn’t do anything differently against the Buckeyes. He chalked up the offensive effort to a

Stars celebrate Jordan at All-Star weekend HOUSTON (AP) — Michael Jordan turned 50 on Sunday, giving this year’s All-Stars a chance to reflect on his illustrious career and how much he still means to the sport. In a weekend filled with the NBA’s greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about. Though he hasn’t played since the 2002-03 season, Jordan’s influence still permeates the league and its players. “Every kid that wanted to play basketball, that could play, that couldn’t play, you tried to emulate Michael Jordan,” Heat star Dwyane Wade said. “That’s why there will never be another one of him. He’s the first of his kind. Everything he did was groundbreaking. He did it with so much flare and so much pizazz that even today people are still trying to be like Mike.” Jordan won six titles and five MVP awards during a career spent mostly with the Bulls that began in 1984. Jordan was in Houston this weekend, and celebrated his birthday early with a private bash on Friday at the Museum of Fine Arts with guests including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is so impressed with Jordan that he said he’s like a real version of Superman. “Be Like Mike” was more than a marketing campaign. It was a dream for many of today’s players. “He’s amazing,” Howard said. “He’s one of the reasons why we played basketball. He inspired us to do great things. I hear his voice sometimes on commercials, it makes you want to get out there and try to do something.” Jordan retired twice before finally leaving the game for good at age 39. Some people wondered this weekend if he could still play in the NBA, despite reaching the age where he qualifies for an AARP card.


This Feb. 28, 2012 file photo shows the statue of former Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan outside the United Center in Chicago. Wade believes this day will be a time for Jordan to reflect on his storied career and appreciate his family and health. “Kind of look back at all the things he did, so many years ago in the NBA that still lives on today,” Wade said. “What he’s been able to do to stay this relevant, in this role, the way he has, is phenomenal.” Though he isn’t seen often, Jordan is never far from the game. He is close to a group of players through his Jordan Brand apparel and as the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. He ignited one of the debates of the weekend when he told NBA TV he would chose Bryant over James based on the number of championships each has won. “If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice, but five beats one every time I look at it, and not that (James) won’t get five, he may get more than that, but five is bigger than one,” Jordan said in the interview, which airs tonight. Carmelo Anthony of the

New York Knicks counts Jordan as one of the most influential in his decision to play basketball. “He changed the game, transcended the game,” Anthony said. “He changed the way people coached the game from a mental aspect. From a training aspect, how you approach that, he changed that. So for me as a kid to see that and see somebody go through that and succeed, that was motivation.” Jordan, who retired for the last time with more than 32,000 points, is perhaps known as much by the younger generation of stars for his namesake Nike shoe as for his basketball skills. “The imprint he’s had on the league, he’s an immortal,” Bryant said. “Everything that he’s done from the business aspect to his professionalism to his work ethic to the global appeal of the game has been something that carries on for generations and generations.” Jordan didn’t make himself available to the press during All-Star

weekend. James said this week that he wasn’t too concerned with the TV remarks. “At the end of the day, rings don’t always define someone’s career,” James said. “If that’s the case, then I would sit up here and say that I would take (Bill) Russell over Jordan. I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t take Russell over Jordan, but Russell has 11 rings and Jordan has six. Or I’d take, I don’t know, Robert Horry over Jordan. I wouldn’t do that. But it’s your own personal opinion.” “Patrick Ewing is one of the greatest of all time,” he continued. “Reggie Miller is one of the greatest of all time. Sometimes, it’s a situation that you’re in, it’s the team that you’re in. It’s about timing as well.” One of the most common sentiments echoed by players this week when talking about Jordan was disbelief that he was turning 50. “Time actually flies,” Bryant said. “Him turning 50, this will be my 17th year, my 15th All-Star Game. Where did the time go?”

Reds look at Choo to start spring training GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Shin-Soo Choo has made 10 starts in center field over eight seasons in the majors. He’ll get a chance to win the job during his first spring training with the Cincinnati Reds. If that doesn’t work out, the defending NL Central champions will have to do some rearranging. The Reds traded incumbent center fielder Drew Stubbs to Cleveland for Choo in the offseason, looking for a stronger bat at the top of the lineup. They haven’t had a consistent leadoff hitter for years. They’re also going to try him in center at the outset. If he struggles during spring training, manager Dusty Baker could move Jay Bruce to center and let Choo play right field. The Korean was a cen-

ter fielder when he broke into the major leagues with the Seattle Mariners in 2005, but he was traded to the Indians in 2006 and was eventually moved to a corner outfield spot. Now, he’s trying to re-learn the position. “Choo will be a kind of trade-off,” Baker said. “If you can play center field here in Arizona, you can play it anywhere. I will try not to judge too harshly. First of all, the outfields are bigger out here. They have to be because of the thin air. There are no clouds. It is tough to judge talent here sometimes.” After a few weeks, Baker will decide how to configure the outfield. Choo knows he’s got things to learn about playing center. “I’ve talked to Jay

Bruce, (Chris) Heisey and the coaches,” Choo said. “I’ve worked in center field, and I’ll do the best I can. After that, the middle of spring training or the end, Dusty will make a decision.” There’s no question about his place in the batting order. Baker has had to use several players, including second baseman Brandon Phillips, in the leadoff spot because he didn’t have anyone who had done it successfully over time. Choo hit 16 home runs last season, and the Reds hope his left-handed bat will lead to higher power numbers with the short right field at Great American Ball Park. Choo reached base at a .373 pace last season. Cincinnati’s leadoff hitters

were worst in the NL at getting on base. With Choo batting first, the other hitters can get into more suitable spots in the order. “The one guy you’ll see take off is Brandon Phillips, who can move back into the second spot,” general manager Walt Jocketty said. “We had to move Brandon around and he’s been great about it, but his best spot is batting second.” The Reds also used rookie shortstop Zack Cozart higher in the order than they wanted because of the lack of a leadoff hitter. “Cozart is a good example,” Jocketty said. “Cozart’s a good hitter, but he should be seventh or eighth. We put him in spots he wasn’t ready for last season.”

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 The rest of the field will be set in duel qualifying races Thursday. However the lineup unfolds, all drivers will line up behind Patrick’s No. 10 Chevrolet SS. And she knows her latest achievement will mean more public relations work. The routine is nothing new for Patrick, who was the first woman to lead laps in the Indianapolis 500. She finished third in 2009, the highest finish in that illustrious race for a woman. And she became the only woman to win an IndyCar race when she did it in Japan in 2008. Hardly anyone witnessed that victory. Leading the field to the green flag in NASCAR’s showcase event should be must-watch television. “That’s a huge accomplishment,” team owner and fellow driver Tony Stewart said. “It’s not like it’s been 15 or 20 years she’s been trying to do this. It’s her second trip to Daytona here in a Cup car. She’s made history in the sport. That’s stuff that we’re proud of being a part of with her. It’s something she should have a huge amount of pride in. “It’s never been done. There’s only one person that can be the first to do anything. Doesn’t matter how many do it after you do, accomplish that same goal. The first one that does always has that little bit more significance to it because you were the first.” Even before her fast lap Sunday, Patrick was the talk of Speedweeks. Not only did she open up about her budding romance with fellow Sprint Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr., but she was considered the front-runner for the pole after leading practice sessions Saturday. And she didn’t disappoint. She kept her car at or near the bottom of the famed track and gained ground on the straight-

landslide effect when a couple of guys started making shots early, it just spread across the team. It also helped that the Badgers took advantage of Ohio State playing them tight on defense, making hard cuts to the rim and then kicking the ball out to open 3-point shooters. “I think a big part is just knocking down shots,” Berggren said. “I think we got a lot of the same looks, but everything seems better when the ball goes in.”

aways, showing lots of power from a Hendrick Motorsports engine. “It’s easy to come down here in your first or second year as a driver and clip the apron trying to run too tight a line or do something and scrub speed off,” Stewart said. “That’s something she did an awesome job. Watching her lap, she runs so smooth. … She did her job behind the wheel, for sure.” The result surely felt good for Patrick, especially considering the former IndyCar driver has mostly struggled in three NASCAR seasons. Her best finish in 10 Cup races is 17th, and she has one topfive in 58 starts in the second-tier Nationwide Series. She raced part-time in 2010 and 2011 while still driving a full IndyCar slate. She switched solely to stock cars last season and finished 10th in the Nationwide standings. She made the jump to Sprint Cup this season and will battle Stenhouse for Rookie of the Year honors. Starting out front in an unpredictable, 500-mile race doesn’t guarantee any sort of result, but securing the pole will put her in the limelight for at least the rest of the week. She also won the pole at Daytona for last year’s Nationwide race. This is considerably bigger. The previous highest female qualifier in a Cup race was Janet Guthrie. She started ninth at Bristol and Talladega in 1977. “It’s obviously a historymaking event that will last a long, long time,” Guthrie said, praising Patrick’s feat. “It’s a different era, of course. Different times. I can’t imagine what I would do with a spotter or somebody telling me how to drive. It’s rather a different sport now. Back then, there was a much greater difference from the front of the field to the back.”

But that could depend on the outcome of a possibly lengthy murder trial. “Regarding sponsors and partners, I can confirm that at this point in time, all parties are supportive and their contractual commitments are maintained,” Van Zyl’s In Site Athlete Management company said. “They have said they are happy to let the legal process takes its course before making any change in their position.” The Beaverton, Orebased Nike Inc. and Foothill Ranch, Calif.based Oakley Inc. did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press seeking comment.

arrested and charged with murder Thursday, with prosecutors saying at his first court appearance a day later that they would pursue a more serious premeditated murder charge, which carries a life sentence. Pistorius broke down and wept in the court, with his face in his hands. His family later denied he murdered Steenkamp and said the state’s own evidence “strongly refutes” any possibility of a murder. “I am not going to comment on anything except that (what) is related to his athletics career at this point in time,” Van Zyl told reporters outside the police station after being asked how Pistorius was coping. “Obviously from a management side and also as a friend, it’s a tragic circumstance and events that have unfolded and we can only give Oscar our support at this point in time.” Family members and his lawyers also visited Pistorius on Sunday, but declined comment both when they arrived and when they left the city center police station.

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Oscar Pistorius’ track career was put on hold indefinitely Sunday because of his murder charge, reinforcing the possibility that the doubleamputee Olympian and disabled sports icon might never run again competitively on his famous carbon fiber blades. Pistorius’ agent was forced to cancel all future races, he said, so Pistorius could concentrate on defending himself against allegations he murdered his model girlfriend by shooting her several times in his upscale house on Valentine’s Day morning. Reeva Steenkamp died from gunshot wounds suffered inside Pistorius’ home in the predawn hours of Thursday. Pistorius was arrested and charged with her murder the same day. His family denies he murdered her. “I have decided that following these tragic events that we have no option but to cancel all future races that Oscar Pistorius had been contracted to compete in,” agent Peet van Zyl said in a written statement late Sunday night. A few hours earlier, Van Zyl had visited his athlete at a police station in the South African capital, Pretoria, where he is being held in custody in a redbricked, one-story building with green metal fencing. Pistorius has been there since Friday following the shocking developments at his villa in a gated community in Pretoria’s eastern suburbs where Steenkamp was shot dead. Her death and Pistorius’ arrest stunned South Africans, who revered Pistorius for his humble nature and success at overcoming adversity to become an international star, despite having his lower legs amputated as a baby. Pistorius still had “overwhelming support” from his fans, Van Zyl said as he left Brooklyn police station, but the agent steered away from a question from a reporter on what Pistorius’ emotional state was now like following the death of his girlfriend and a possible real-

The family of Steenkamp, a model, law graduate and budding reality TV star, told The Associated Press that her body had been released by police after an autopsy and was back in their hometown of Port Elizabeth on South Africa’s southern coast. “Reeva is back home,” the late model’s brother, Adam Steenkamp, told the AP by phone. He had flown back from Britain, where he now lives, to be with the family. They also said Steenkamp’s funeral would be held Tuesday and would be a private ceremony for family at a local crematorium. Media would not be allowed in. The main purpose for Van Zyl’s visit to Brooklyn police station Sunday afternoon was to discuss Pistorius’ running career, but “also to visit him as a friend and give him my moral support,” the agent said. “On a personal level I wanted to offer my support to Oscar, who I have known and worked with for the last seven years and consider a friend and a great professional athlete.” Following the meeting, Van Zyl announced publicly that the five races that Pistorius had confirmed for in 2013 were canceled: two in Australia in March, exhibition races against fellow Paralympic champions Alan Oliveira of Brazil and Jonnie Peacock of Britain, and an appearance at the U.S. Drake Relays in Iowa. Van Zyl’s decision to cancel those races was first reported by the AP on Saturday. All others that were still in negotiation were also now called off, Van Zyl said on Sunday.

PALM CITY, Fla. (AP) — President Barack Obama played golf Sunday with Tiger Woods, the White House said Sunday. Once the sport’s dominant player before his career was sidetracked by scandal, Woods joined Obama at the Floridian, a secluded and exclusive yacht and golf club on Florida’s Treasure Coast where Obama is spending the long Presidents Day weekend. The two had met before, but Sunday was the first time they played together. The White House has prohibited media coverage of Obama’s weekend golf outing. The foursome also included Jim Crane, a Houston businessman who owns the Floridian and baseball’s Houston Astros, and outgoing U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, a former mayor of Dallas, said White House spokesman Josh Earnest. Crane and Kirk also were part of Obama’s foursome on Saturday, the White House said. Obama, an avid golfer, also received some instruction Saturday and played a few holes with Butch Harmon, Woods’ former swing coach. Golf Digest reported that Obama spent eight hours with Harmon, during which he played 27 holes and hit balls in Harmon’s studio, and then managed to coordinate Sunday’s round with Woods. The report said the original plan called for Obama and Woods to play at Woods’

home club The Medalist Golf Club, a half-hour away in Hobe Sound but they eventually opted for the Floridian. Woods departed after the first 18 holes, but Obama stayed on to play another nine, the report said. “Just to see the interaction between the two on the range was pretty neat,” Harmon told Golf Digest. “The President said to Tiger: ‘The last tournament you played was fun to watch. It’s good to see you play well again.’ You could tell he meant it. It just wasn’t a throw it out compliment.” It seems Obama and Woods the first black men at the top of their respective fields have spent the past few years inching toward Sunday’s meeting on the fairway. The two met in January 2009, during Obama’s inauguration in Washington. Four months later, in April, Woods visited the White House and Obama welcomed him into the Oval Office. Woods’ personal life imploded later in 2009 after revelations that he had engaged in multiple extramarital affairs, leading to divorce. He followed with a public apology and announced he was taking an indefinite break from golf. Shortly after Woods announced he was coming out of seclusion, Obama said in an interview with Fox News Channel that Woods will still be a “terrific” golfer despite his personal issues.

Nadal wins 1st title since injury SAO PAULO (AP) — The last time Rafael Nadal won in Brazil, it was at the very start of the most dominant claycourt career tennis has ever seen. Eight years later, Nadal hopes his second title here will mark the restart. Nadal beat David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-3 in the final of the Brazil Open on Sunday, his first trophy since returning from a seven-month layoff to treat his left knee. While this indoor claycourt tournament is much more low-priofile than those he has grown used to winning, Nadal thrust his arms into the air and pumped his fist after Nalbandian sent a shot long to give the Spaniard his 51st singles title. His second also came in this event in 2005, when he was still relatively unknown, and he went on to win the first of his seven French Open titles months later. “Brazil will always be in my heart,” Nadal said. “Big things started to happen after I won here in 2005 and hopefully this is the start of some-

thing good again.” Nadal needed the lengthy layoff to treat a partially torn and inflamed tendon in his knee, and his comeback was then further postponed by an illness. He returned to play in Chile last week, losing in the final of both the singles and doubles tournaments. So lifting a trophy again felt extra good this time. “I’ll definitely enjoy this one because of all the problems that I’ve gone through with the knee,” Nadal said. “When I won for the first time here I was just starting and hopefully this will mark a new beginning.” It was Nadal’s first title since winning the French Open for the seventh time last June. Thirty-seven of his titles have been on clay. Nadal struggled to find a rhythm in the beginning but was still able to break Nalbandian’s serve twice to take the first set, then rallied from 3-0 down in the second to win six straight games and close out the match in 1 hour, 18 minutes.
