Gee to leave Ohio State

BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer nknoth@civitasmedia.com Troy lost a public servant Monday when former city councilman Frank Hutchinson died — a man compassionate about helping people, said his wife Sandy on Tuesday afternoon. Hutchinson, 70, who lived in Pleasant Hill, died after a battle with brain cancer. “He was a fun-loving husband and father. He didn’t meet too

TROY many strangers,” Sandy said. “He loved to pick on people, especially the people he knew well. He was a jokester in that respect, and he cared about everybody. I guess that would be the reason he ran for council. He wanted to help people.” The couple had a son, Jeff. Hutchinson served on Troy City Council as fourth ward councilman from January 2004 to

December 2005, before becoming councilman-at-large from January 2008 to December 2011. Former council president Bill Lohrer said Hutchinson was a devoted, respected councilman — and friend — who respectfully made his opinions known. “Frank was just Frank. He didn’t pretend to be somebody other than who he was. He was just a genuinely nice person, and probably just as honest as the day is long,” Lohrer said. “Personally, I

really liked the man, I really did. I thought he was kind; I thought he was a good Christian man. thought I everything he did was, in his mind, the right HUTCHINSON thing to do for the city of Troy. That’s all you can ask of someone who is a public servant. And I think Frank did that position admirably.” Current Council President Marty Baker recalled Hutchinson

Dry weather hampers firefighters Two massive columns of smoke hovered over northern New Mexico on Tuesday as more than 1,100 firefighters worked to build lines across rugged mountainsides and keep flames from pushing closer to summer homes and cabins. Haze from the fires drifted across New Mexico, leading residents to worry that the state might be in for a third consecutive record-breaking fire season. See Page 12.

Collier said he is willing to overlook the large equipment being parked across the street as long as it is temporary, but has not approached the owners of the home due to past history.

Staff Report At Tim Hortons today, all coffee proceeds will go toward sending 16,000 underprivileged students to camp nationwide — including nine from Troy — through the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation. The students, ages 9 to 12, are all a part of The Future Begins Today, a Troy organization dedicated to helping students succeed. The nonprofit is partnering with the Tim Hortons at 700 W. Main St. to send the students to Campbellsville, Ky. While typically only two students from Troy are sent, this year nine were granted the opportunity to go, as two other Tim Hortons locations did not have anyone to send to the camp. Cheryl Cotner, executive director of The Future Begins Today, also said the camp sought out Troy students because they are known for being well-behaved. Cotner stressed that without this program, many kids would not have the chance to experience going off to camp. “It’s all underprivileged kids, kids who are at-risk, kids who have never had experiences like this before. They may be on free or reduced lunches or have only one parent in the home,” Cotner said. “We’re very grateful — it’s very exciting.”

Trustee Tom Mercer said a similar situation occurred several years ago with an owner of a construction company leaving equipment in the street and then later moved it to the back yard. Trustee Bill Whidden said as long as the vehicle was moved no action could be taken that they knew of. Whidden thanked Collier for bringing the matter to the trustee’s attention. Mercer reminded the public that many questions concerning junk vehicles, outdoor burning, tall grass and noxious weeds could be found on the township’s website. Other issues concerning property maintenance were brought to the attention of trustees at its last meeting on May 21. At Tuesday’s meeting, Trustee Mercer said the

majority of the township’s complaints are due to foreclosed properties and tracking the owners down to keep them properly maintained. “Majority of our problems is we deal with foreclosed properties and make the calls to notify whoever owns to clean or mow it – it’s very frustrating,” Mercer said. Several property owners on Spruce Street attended the May 21 meeting in reaction to an anonymous letter sent to the township, Miami County Planning and Zoning and Miami County Public Health about junk vehicles. Kevin Ney of Miami County Planning and Zoning was able to answer general questions and complaints, including specifics about Concord Township’s ordinance concerning junk vehicles. Trustee Whidden suggested residents meet with Ney individually to resolve issues. In other news: Road superintendent Neil Rhoades reported he had contacted the Miami County Sheriff’s Office about complaints of speeding near Waco Street. Rhoades said Chief Deputy Dave Duchak said a speed trailer could be placed in the area as well as an increase in patrols in the area.

She suggested the health department be called about the appearance of the property. Fiscal Officer Pat Quillen said she doesn’t anticipate many changes in the 2014 tax budget for the township. One change is the elimination of the estate tax which was never factors in the township’s budget as well as an increase in the motor vehicle permissive tax. The township receives 34 percent from the county’s collection of the permissive tax through the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Quillen reminded residents to prove their residency when the $10 permissive tax begins in 2014 for the city of Troy residents. On each vehicle registration, the township or city is listed for each vehicle and owner to define residency. Quillen anticipates the township’s motor vehicle tax collection to increase from $13,000 to $33,000 according to county official’s estimates.

cruiser with their vehicle and fled. Vandalia pursued the suspects on North Dixie Drive all the way up to Forest Hills Cemetery, near the county line, where the two men crashed their vehicle into a ditch. The driver, Juan Bell, was apprehended immediately. The second suspect took off on foot. Police had not yet released the name of the second suspect as of press time. That’s when the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office provided assistance, setting up a perimeter outside Forest Hill Cemetery. A deputy stopped by Ginghamsburg Church’s South Campus Discipleship Center on County Road 25A and told staff and a tour of college students to leave the area and secure the cars and buildings. Ginghamsburg staff then contacted the Tipp City campus. “Ginghamsburg thought it would be prudent to secure its south campus discipleship center doors and alert its Tipp City campus and preschool to be watchful and stay indoors until the emergency ended,” Ginghamsburg Communications Specialist Brenda Hauser said. Police dispatch called the Tipp City school district office and informed

officials there was a crash at the cemetery with a fugitive heading north toward Tipp City, and to put all buildings on lockdown. That was at about 2:20 p.m., according to Superintendent Dr. John Kronour. Between 2:352:40 p.m., Tipp police officers came to each school to bring them out of lockdown. Although it delayed the busing schedule, Kronour feels the safety of the students was worth it. “It’s better to be safe than sorry,” he said. The second suspect was caught in the wooded area adjacent to the cemetery with the aid of a police dog. He still is in the hospital, and as of last night was too disoriented to give his name, Cresie said. A One Call Now message was sent out to Tipp City parents after the suspect was apprehended, letting families know about the lockdown and saying “there was no threat to our schools.” The men will be charged with aggravated robbery, felonious assault and receiving stolen property by Butler Township police. Further charges come from Vandalia Police for felonious assault on a police officer and fleeing and eluding. The Walmart employee was treated for her bite wounds at Grandview Medical Center, Cresie said.

What kind of programs did they listen to? What was their favorite radio station? What was its call letters? 2. Why was it important that the Voice of America transmitters be hidden? 3. Why was the sentence “We will tell you the truth” so powerful?

Newspaper Activities: Propaganda can be good or bad. When it is good, it provides information that helps people, a cause or an institution. Newspaper ads are full of propaganda.

America great, the right of free speech. You don't have to agree with what any person writes, but you should agree with their right to write it. If the Troy Daily News writes only what some people believe that would be a lot

worse than everyone having their say. If you don't like what is said in the letters to the editor, read it, drink a cup of coffee and get over it.

Buying cereal shouldn’t be a matter of race I Love Cheerios. I wake up in the morning and I have a bowl. Late at night, Cheerios are a much better snack than a bag of chips.

DOONESBURY

What a day off does (and should) look like After covering the Strawberry Festival on Sunday, I was pleased to find I had the afternoon off Monday. I love a day to myself as much as the next person, but I always have to be productive or I feel I wasted precious time. This does not entail laborious tasks, mind you. I’m known for jotting down a to-do list that reads “paint nails” and “call back (insert friend’s name).” Feels good to cross off tasks, right? Because during a busy week, even doing things you enjoy can feel like a drag. So Monday I started off organizing my closet, went to the grocery store to stock up on granola bars, and then returned an impulse buy that’s been rolling around in my car for a few weeks. Hey, it happens. Then I wrote in a journal I swore I would use every day (nope, didn’t happen) and finished reading a new book, “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” (that’s one book off the list from my column last week). It felt especially good to escape into a book. Hello, accomplishment! But by the time 2 p.m. rolled

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist around … I was bored. How could this be? I thought. This same person who complains when free time is hard to come by? But here I was frustrated, that I had nothing to do. Actually, more correctly stated, I found nothing I actually wanted to do. (No way was I going to organize all my filed papers on my day off.) That’s the thing about me and free time — or as I like to call it, “me time.” There’s a fine line between feeling blissfully adrift for a day and feeling bored-bordering-on-worthless. I also tend to subscribe to the “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop” mentality. If I’m not engaging my mind in something interesting, I start think-

ing negatively. In fact, the other day I was telling a friend about how I wished I had the summer off like my other friend does. “Don’t kid yourself,” she said without skipping a beat. “You’d hate that.” Ugh, she is so right … Anyway, in the middle of the afternoon, I decided to call up my friend Erin, who lives not too far away, but just far enough that seeing each other during the week is pretty much out of the question. Erin shares my need to stay constantly busy, lest negative thoughts start marching in. I expected she’d want to hit up a happy hour or watch a movie or something, but instead she said, “Would you want to go a boot camp class for a half hour? Trust me you’ll feel great after this!” Relieved that the class was only a half hour, versus my hour of Zumba, I stupidly assumed this would be easy peasy. “Sure!” I said. “I’ve been feeling like a bump on a log all day.” Needless to say, I had no idea

what I was getting into. I knew I was in trouble instantly when I arrived at the fitness studio. All those weights lining the walls and an instructor who could have been straight out of an action flick. Uh oh. Long story short, I ended up using dumbbells twice the weight as I normally use to perform a bunch of exercises that required balance and coordination that I didn’t even know possible. After the half hour was over, my head was spinning and I felt the remnants of my lunch working its way up. Basically I wanted to die. But Tuesday, I felt pretty amazing. Is this called, “weightlifter’s high?” (I’m using that term loosely, as my arm strength leaves much to be desired.) But anyway, I’m pleased to know that I was both healthy and productive on my day off. Verdict’s still out on the rest of the week.

Phillips dies; led umpires, NBA refs PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Richie Phillips, a tough-talking Philly lawyer who became a negotiator for Major League Baseball umpires and NBA referees, has died. He was 72. Phillips’ death was reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer, which said he died Friday of cardiac arrest at his second home in Cape May, N.J. His death was confirmed by the D’Anjolell Memorial Home in Broomall, where a viewing is scheduled Thursday. “We got so much because of Richie pensions, vacations, better salaries,” former umpire and board member Don Denkinger told The Associated Press by telephone on Tuesday. Phillips represented NBA referees in the 1970s and ’80s and led MLB umps from 1978 until 1999, when a failed tactic of mass resignations cost 22 umpires their jobs. The setback prompted umpires to abandon Phillips’ Major League Umpires Association and form a new union, the World Umpires Association. Phillips liked to tell the story of how, at age 13 while growing up in the Philadelphia area, he

led a strike of altar boys at his parish over a dispute about their tips. In years to come, his work stoppages involved a lot more money. Under Phillips, big league umpires held a seven-week strike in 1979, another walkout at the start of the 1984 playoffs and a brief interruption on opening day in 1991. There were other work stoppages, too. “He had his feet on the ground and knew what he wanted,” Denkinger said. “He’d keep talking until 6 a.m. if that’s what it took.” A little more than that, sometimes. “Every once in a while, he’d stage a breakdown. Throw something through a wall or something to get attention,” he said. “But he wanted baseball to know that we were important, that we were valuable and worth it.” When Phillips became the umpires’ negotiator in 1978, rookie umpires made $17,500. By 2000, they earned at least $95,000. Denkinger, who started as an umpire in 1969 and retired in 1998, credited Phillips with getting umpires their first pensions

and vacations. Phillips often came across as loud and brash. Many umpires praised him over the years, saying his personality was what it took to deal with MLB hierarchy. But Phillips’ reign came to a sudden end in 1999. Trying to press his negotiating points, he convinced umpires to turn in their resignations all at once, hoping to force MLB into a corner. Many of the umps followed Phillips’ advice. Instead, MLB accepted 22 of them and minor league umpires took their place in early September on a permanent basis. By the end of the year, Phillips also was out of a job. “Richie would always tell the guys to stick together and we’d get things hammered out, and that’s what they did,” Denkinger said. “When it all came apart in 1999, he didn’t have everybody, he didn’t have 100 percent.” Phillips graduated from law school at Villanova and later worked in the Philadelphia public defender’s office and the disAP trict attorney’s office. He also In this Aug. 3, 1999 file photo, Richie Phillips, head of the Major worked with trade unions in the League Umpires Association, gestures during a news conference city. in New York.

Cope, 27, the mother of two children, drove to pick up her husband, Ryan Cope, at his job at Guido’s pizza parlor on the day of the crash, prosecutors said. Ryan Cope got behind the wheel of their SUV. Two co-workers, Michael Bishop and Jasmin O’Neill, were also in the car.

Gross had a learner’s permit but no valid license, according to Shorey. The air bag system in his SUV recorded the vehicle’s speed at 35 mph two seconds before the crash and showed Gross had applied brakes to slow to 27 mph when the vehicles collided. Investigators seized Gross’ cellphone. Prosecutors said he sent and received 14 texts and made four phone calls in the 32 minutes before the collision. The final text was received at 2:36 a.m. Investigators said that was about a minute before the collision. According to prosecutors, a blood sample taken from Gross an hour after the crash tested positive for marijuana. Gross told police after the crash that he had not smoked marijuana, prosecuSUSAN K.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A state grand jury has indicted an Anchorage teenager suspected of texting while driving on manslaughter and other felony charges for a crash that killed a woman. Prosecutors allege Murphy Madison Gross, 16, took his father’s new sport utility vehicle without permission, smoked marijuana with friends and drove without a license Feb. 6 before running a red light and causing a crash that killed Catherine Cope. The grand jury indicted the teenager on charges of manslaughter, three counts of third-degree assault, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving without a valid driver’s license, and using an electronic device while driving. The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles suspected of crimes, but the AP is identifying Gross because he has been charged as an adult and because of the severity of the alleged crime. Prosecutors said Gross has denied sending text messages just before the crash. His attorney, John Murtagh, did not return phone messages to the Anchorage Daily News. Assistant District Attorney Daniel Shorey said charges against Gross mark the first fatal texting-and-driving case he knows of since the Alaska Legislature in 2012 revised a law to make driving while texting explicitly illegal.

France, Britain: Sarin gas was used in Syria PARIS (AP) — France said Tuesday it has confirmed that the nerve gas sarin was used “multiple times and in a localized way” in Syria, including at least once by the regime. It was the most specific claim by any Western power about chemical weapons attacks in the 27-month-old conflict. Britain later said that tests it conducted on samples taken from Syria also were positive for sarin. The back-to-back announcements left many questions unanswered, highlighting the difficulties of confirming from a distance whether combatants in Syria have crossed the “red line” set by President Barack Obama. The regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad has refused to allow U.N. investigators into the country. The French and British findings, based on samples taken from Syria, came hours after a U.N. team said it had “reasonable grounds” to suspect small-scale use of toxic chemicals in at least four attacks in March and April. The U.N. probe was conducted from outside Syria’s

borders, based on interviews with doctors and witnesses of purported attacks and a review of amateur videos from Syria. The team said solid evidence will remain elusive until inspectors can collect samples from victims directly or from the sites of alleged attacks. Some experts cautioned that the type of evidence currently available to investigators videos, witness reports and physiological samples of uncertain origin leaves wide doubts. At the same time, forensic evidence of alleged chemical weapons use is fading away with time, and the longer U.N. inspectors are kept out of Syria, the harder it will be to collect conclusive proof, they said. Syria is suspected of having one of the world’s largest chemical weapons arsenals, including mustard and nerve gas, such as sarin. In recent weeks, the regime and those trying to topple Assad have increasingly used accusations of chemical weapons as a propaganda tool, but have offered no solid proof. In the West, meanwhile, the lack of certainty about such allegations is linked to a high stakes political debate over whether the U.S. should get more involved in the Syria conflict, including by arming those fighting Assad. Obama has been reluctant to send weapons to the Syrian rebels, in part because of the presence of Islamic militants among them. Obama has warned that the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to

a terrorist group would cross a “red line,” hinting at forceful intervention in such an event. Yet he has insisted on a high level of proof, including a “chain of custody,” that can only come from on-site investigations currently being blocked by the regime. In Tuesday’s announcement about sarin, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said his government had analyzed several samples, including some brought back from Syria by reporters from the Le Monde newspaper. He said that there was “no doubt” that at least in one case, the regime and its allies were responsible for the attack. “We have integrally traced the chain, from the attack, to the moment people were killed, to when the samples were taken and analyzed,” Fabius told the TV station France 2. He said a line was crossed and that “all options are on the table,” including intervening “militarily where the gas is produced or stored.” In London, Britain’s Foreign Office said samples from Syria were tested at a government laboratory and the presence of sarin was confirmed. It did not say when or where the samples were obtained. Britain has evidence suggesting a number of different chemical agents have been used, “sometimes including sarin, sometimes not,” said Britain’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mark Lyall Grant. White House spokesman Jay Carney, speaking before

ing from shells fired in the area. Britain and France have also pushed to widen Sellstrom’s mandate, sending Ban information on additional alleged incidents. Such allegations are typically based on three types of information that can be obtained without having investigators go into Syria amateur videos, witness accounts and physiological samples. Witnesses and doctors have been interviewed by Skype or after fleeing Syria, while Turkey, Britain and France have analyzed samples that were either smuggled out of the country or taken from suspected victims after they were hospitalized outside Syria. The Obama administration also referred to such samples when it said in an April letter to two U.S. senators that the U.S. intelligence community had determined, with “varying degrees of confidence,” that the regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale, specifically the nerve gas sarin. However, the administration cautioned that intelligence assessments are not sufficient, citing the stakes involved. Claims of chemical weapons attacks also pose a dilemma for journalists. Some of the videos posted by activists have shown rows of people lying in what appear to be makeshift hospitals, breathing with the aid of oxygen masks, sometimes twitching as they struggle to breathe.

number of times, as there are persistent reports of limited, continued use of chemical weapons from various sources that seem fairly credible.” The French findings give additional weight to previous suspicions, though “people will want to know about the chain of custody for the evidence,” said Eisenstadt, of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy think tank. Since allegations of the use of chemical weapons first emerged late last year, the U.N. has investigated on two separate tracks, while France, Britain, Turkey and the U.S. have conducted additional probes. The team appointed by the Human Rights Council has issued periodic updates about suspected war crimes in Syria, and Tuesday’s report dealt with chemical weapons, among a wide range of topics. Separately, U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon appointed a U.N. team headed by Swedish chemical weapons experts Ake Sellstrom after the Syrian government asked for an investigation of a purported rebel attack on March 19 on the village of Khan al-Assal, near the northern city of Aleppo. Syrian soldiers were reportedly killed, and the regime insisted that the U.N. probe be limited to that incident. Ban wants a broader investigation, including a December incident in the central city of Homs in which opposition activists claimed six rebels died after inhaling white smoke pour-

the British announcement, said the French report is “entirely consistent” with the Obama administration’s own findings, but added more work needs to be done to establish who is responsible for the use of the toxic substances and when they were used. “We need more information,” he said. Russia, meanwhile, has rejected intelligence the U.S. provided last month suggesting the Assad regime used chemical weapons on its own people, American officials said. A U.S. diplomatic delegation that was sent to Moscow failed to persuade Russian officials and prompted no change in the Kremlin’s support for Assad, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Experts disagreed on whether the latest chemical weapons allegations mean Obama’s red line has been crossed. “The verdict is still open,” said Jean Pascal Zanders, an independent chemical weapons consultant, speaking before the French and British announcements. Zanders said that while claims of chemical weapons use cannot be ignored, the details of the alleged attacks often don’t correspond to the purported symptoms shown in videos or reported by witnesses. Analyst Michael Eisenstadt said he believes Obama’s red line “has indeed been crossed on a

Deadly tornado widest on record; rare EF5 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The deadly tornado that plowed through an area near Oklahoma City last week was even larger and more powerful than previously estimated a record 2.6 miles wide with winds that reached nearly 300 mph, just shy of the strongest winds ever measured. The National Weather Service on Tuesday announced that the twister that hit El Reno was a top-of-the-scale EF5 twister the second to strike the area in less than two weeks. Friday’s tornado was initially rated as an EF3. But the agency upgraded that ranking after surveying damage and concluding that the storm had winds of 295 mph. Nineteen people died in the storm and subsequent flooding, including three storm chasers. The Oklahoma City area also saw an EF5 tornado on May 20. That one raked Moore, a suburb 25 miles southeast of El Reno, and killed 24 people. Moore was hit in 1999 by another EF5, which had the strongest winds ever measured on earth: 302 mph. The massive tornado that formed Friday avoided highly populated metro areas, a fact that almost certainly saved lives. Winds were at their most powerful in areas devoid of structures, said Rick Smith, chief warning coordination meteorologist for the weather service’s office in Norman. “Any house would have been completely swept clean on the foundation,” Smith said. The twister marched through the countryside between El Reno and Union City, a region of largely rural farm and grazing land. Most of the destruction came toward the end of the tornado’s 16.2mile path along Interstate 40, where several motorists were killed when their vehicles were tossed around. Like many Midwestern cities, the Oklahoma City metropolitan area continues to expand in the suburbs, but the rapid growth hasn’t quite reached as far west as where Friday’s tornado tracked. William Hooke, a senior policy fellow of the American Meteorological Society, said

the continued growth of cities in tornado-prone areas makes it only a matter of time before another monstrous twister hits a heavily populated area. “You dodged a bullet,” Hooke said. “You lay that path over Oklahoma City, and you have devastation of biblical proportions. In El Reno, the city of 18,000 suffered significant damage, including to its vocational-technical center and a cattle stockyard that was reduced to a pile of twisted metal. But Mayor Matt White said it could have been worse had the twister passed to the north. “If it was two more miles this way, it would have wiped out all of downtown, almost every one of our subdivisions and almost all of our businesses,” White said. “It would have taken out everything.” The EF5 storm that hit Moore decimated neighborhoods. “It’s very scary … I don’t think a normal person can fathom just how scary,” White said. “I don’t think they realize how lucky El Reno was.” The storm’s 2.6-mile-wide path surpassed a record set in 2004 in Hallam, Neb. And it would have made the storm hard to recognize up close, Smith said. “A 2-mile wide tornado would not look like a tornado to a lot of people,” Smith said, explaining that the twister would not have a tapered funnel and would instead resemble a dark cloud hanging below the horizon. Greg Carbin, a meteorologist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, said May in Oklahoma is a time of weather transition, offering the perfect fuel for violent thunderstorms that can produce tornadoes a combination of warm, moist air combined with cooler jet stream energy that causes massive instability in the atmosphere. “In these past two events, we’ve had a lot of unstable air sitting around, a lot of moisture and warm air,” Carbin said. “That provides the fuel for thunderstorm development.”

This May 21, file aerial photo shows the remains of houses in Moore, Okla., following a tornado the May 20 tornado. The Oklahoma City area has seen two of the extremely rare EF5 tornadoes in only 11 days.

Anger follows acquittal in death of model Lacey later issued a statement saying prosecutors believed in the strength of the evidence and had fought hard and fair in court. “Although we disagree with the verdict, we respect our system of justice,” Lacey said. Prosecutors had depicted Park as a hired killer who strangled Redding with her bare hands on instructions from the model’s former boyfriend. The panel returned two separate verdicts in the case after struggling with legal definitions and receiving additional

instructions. The panel initially found Park not guilty of first-degree murder. After hearing more arguments from lawyers, jurors deliberated further and came back with an acquittal on the lesser included offense of second-degree murder. They had reported on Monday that they were deadlocked on the seconddegree murder charge with two jurors in disagreement. They asked for clarification of the difference between first- and second-degree murder. The judge allowed attorneys for both sides to

address the panel briefly with additional arguments. Deputy District Attorney Stacy Okun-Wiese explained the legal requirements to convict Park. Park’s lawyer, George Buehler, told the panel: “There are still a lot of unanswered questions about what happened in the apartment.” Redding was killed in Santa Monica in 2008. Prosecutors alleged that Park strangled her with her bare hands and left overwhelming DNA evidence on the body and around the apartment.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Friends and family members of a strangled model erupted in tears and screams on Tuesday when a jury acquitted a woman described by prosecutors as a female James Bond. Onlookers in the courtroom who knew victim Juliana Redding screamed obscenities and called defendant Kelly Soo Park a murderer. They appeared ready to pounce on Park and were held back by deputies as she turned and was led through a rear entrance. Jurors had been escorted out a back way before the outburst. Park wept when the final verdict was announced. Redding’s family left the courthouse without comment. District Attorney Jackie

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Some people just have to learn the hard way Dear Annie: I have worked for many years at a small family-owned company. I believe my boss has been the victim of a scam, but I can't tell her. For several years, my boss has been communicating with a gentleman who claims to be Nigerian. He keeps telling her he is supposed to come to America in the near future and will bring her a check for $40 million. I don't see it happening. There are three people sending this man money. By now, they have probably given him more than $100,000. When I am at work, my boss asks whether the man has sent any emails, and if not, she wants me to write to him. Every few weeks, he says the trip has to be postponed, and then he needs more money for a new ticket. How do I tell her I don't want to be involved with this any longer? — Seeing a Scam Dear Seeing: The "Nigerian scam" has been around for a very long time, and we are surprised people still fall for it. This man will never come to this country with $40 million, but he's certainly doing a good job of collecting money from naive people like your boss. Not only should you stop contacting this man, but you also should protect your boss by informing her that this is a scam and she should report it to the local FBI office or register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Of course, if she chooses to ignore you and contact him on her own, there is nothing you can do. Some people have to learn the hard way. Dear Annie: My husband and I live on a quiet dead-end street. Quiet, that is, until the neighbors rev up their Harleys. They have two motorcycles that have been altered to be much louder than the factory intended. These neighbors often come home well after midnight and sometimes leave early on Sunday mornings, making it impossible to sleep with our bedroom window open. When they travel back and forth during the day, the thunderous noise is quite disturbing. I realize that some Harley owners feel that the loud pipes and leather are a form of prestige, but I wonder whether they ever consider their neighbors. Please, Harley owners, pipe down! — Hate Those Harleys Dear Hate: Have you asked your neighbors directly whether they would please muffle the noise until they are out on the open road? Does your neighborhood have a noise ordinance prohibiting such volume at certain hours? Is there a neighborhood association to resolve conflicts? Don't give up without first checking to see whether you have any recourse in the matter. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Helpless, Tired Granny," who is raising her four grandchildren, and two of them are terribly messed up. That letter moved me. My two oldest sons were wonderful little boys, but something changed in middle school, and they became rebellious and angry. They would skip school and run away. They were so out of control that we could not have family events. Counseling didn't work until we took our older boy to a psychiatrist when he began using drugs. They eventually were both diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Now, even though we still have our ups and downs, we have our happy family back, and my sons are preparing for their futures. My suggestion for "Helpless" is to get help. She should get a referral to a psychiatrist and find out whether her local health department has a program for grandparents in her situation. Government programs have a lot to offer, but you have to ask. She needs to be strong. — Been There Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

SUDOKU PUZZLE

He says students were shy Martin Sheen stars but not intimidated. in NM play with Channing Tatum, Navajo students SHIPROCK, N.M. (AP) — wife Jenna have Actor Martin Sheen has lent a baby girl his performing skills for a play written and produced by American Indian students in New Mexico. The Farmington Daily Times reports that the “Apocalypse Now” and “Wall Street” star participated Monday in a play called “Navajo News,” a comedic series of sketches about the Navajo way of life. It was a one-night showing at the Phil L. Thomas Performing Arts Center in Shiprock. Sheen was in the Navajo Nation community this week to help out with the Native Vision summer camp and series of drama workshops. The star of the TV show “West Wing” says he was happy to participate because activism is what he does to “stay alive.”

NEW YORK — Channing Tatum will be juggling acting with diaper duty: He and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have a daughter to dote on. Everly Tatum was born last Friday in London, where her father is filming the movie “Jupiter Ascending.” The birth was announced on separate websites for both parents with the message “Welcome to the World!” This is the first child for the Tatums. They met on the set of the film “Step Up” and have been married since 2009. The couple co-starred in last year’s “10 Years.” Tatum, who is People magazine’s reigning “Sexiest Man Alive,” is best known for films such as “Magic Mike” and “21 Jump Street.” His next film, “White House Down,” is out at the end of this month.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Heloise column helped save my daughter’s life Dear Heloise: As a reader of The Advocate in Baton Rouge, La., I’m not being too dramatic when I say that you may have saved my adult daughter’s life, or at the very least prevented an episode of anaphylaxis. She found out a few years ago that she’s allergic to edible flowers. Neither she nor I knew that capers were in this category until I read it in your column. Your column spurred further research on our part, as it made us wonder what else is out there that is part of a flower that we don’t know about. Thanks and appreciation, as you never know how you may help others in unexpected ways. — Glenda L. in Louisiana

Hints from Heloise Columnist P.S.: This is the second time you’ve helped us in this area. The other time was when you suggested carrying two EpiPens in case one malfunctioned. Glenda, thank you for writing and sharing your story. Wow, who would have thought something as simple as “What is a caper?” would yield such great (and

potentially lifesaving) information. People often ask how topic ideas come about. Obviously from readers who send in questions or hints to share. But also, many ideas come from people I meet when traveling and giving speeches, or doing TV shows and working with producers to plan a segment. The caper question came from a reader. One of my assistants keeps them as a staple in her house, so she was happy to do the research. Guess what? No one in my office had a clue that capers are part of the flower family! The epinephrine auto-injector idea came from the same assistant, who discovered that one of

her daughters was deathly allergic to fire ants! The poor girl got bitten while at school and was taken by ambulance to the hospital! Now she must keep the injectors at school and with her at all times. If anyone reading this column is highly allergic and must keep an epinephrine auto-injector handy, you should have two available. Why? In case one doesn’t work, you don’t use it in the required length of time or when used the pen malfunctions, etc. Sometimes the “simplest” hint or question starts a journey discovering all kinds of interesting (and some NOT) information! — Heloise

HOROSCOPE

SNUFFY SMITH

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, June 6, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you're concerned with money matters and cash flow today, this is a poor day to shop for anything other than food. Forewarned is forearmed. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a goofy, unpredictable day. Enjoy social times with others; however, keep things light. Do not make any important decisions. Don't spend money today (except on food). GEMINI(May 21 to June 20) Keep a low profile today, because this is not a day to do important things. In fact, quite the opposite; just deal with what is at hand. Don't make waves. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a wonderful day to schmooze with friends and enjoy the company of others. Enjoy warm conversations, but avoid important decisions. Don't accept offers. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Relations with people in authority are significant today. Nevertheless, postpone all important decisions until tomorrow. Just chat with others and get the lay of the land. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might be kicking around some travel ideas today or ideas related to publishing, higher education, medicine and the law. It's a good time to get information, but wait until tomorrow to make your move. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Postpone all important decisions about shared property, taxes, debt and jointly held possessions until tomorrow. Just coast today. Gather as much information as possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Conversations with partners and close friends will be candid today, because people are friendly, open and willing to shoot from the hip. However, don't make important decisions until Friday. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good time to putter and declutter your life. Just deal with the matters at hand and postpone important decisions until tomorrow, when everything will be all systems go. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a wonderful, creative day for you! Enjoy the arts. Enjoy socializing with others. Accept invitations to party. Sports and playful activities with children will delight you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an ideal day to cocoon at home and just putter around the house. Don't shop for anything other than food. It's a great day for creative, social activities. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might feel unusually intuitive and psychic today. Listen to your hunches, but wait until Friday to make important decisions. Today is too looseygoosey for that. YOU BORN TODAY You are a visionary and expressive. Because of your high goals, you go after what you want. You want to enlighten others and the world around you. (At times, you're revolutionary.) Your belief in what is possible keeps you going. In the year ahead, something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish in order to create room for something new.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, June 5, the 156th day of 2013. There are 209 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 5, 1963, Britain’s Secretary of State for War, John Profumo, resigned after acknowledging an affair with a call girl, Christine Keeler (who was also involved with a Soviet spy), and lying to Parliament about it; while there was no finding of a security breach, the scandal helped bring down the Conservative government of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. On this date: • In 1794, Congress passed the

Neutrality Act, which prohibited Americans from taking part in any military action against a country that was at peace with the United States. • In 1884, Civil War hero Gen. William T. Sherman refused the Republican presidential nomination, saying, “I will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected.” • In 1940, during the World War II Battle of France, Germany attacked French forces along the Somme line. • In 1967, war erupted in the Mideast as Israel raided military aircraft parked on the ground in Egypt; Syria, Jordan and Iraq entered the conflict.

• In 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel after claiming victory in California’s Democratic presidential primary. Gunman Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was immediately arrested. • In 2004, Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, died in Los Angeles at age 93 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. • Today’s Birthdays: Author Ken Follett is 64. Financial guru Suze Orman is 62. Actor Mark Wahlberg is 42. Rock musician Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy) is 34.

Hot, dry weather hampers firefighters PECOS, N.M. (AP) — Two massive columns of smoke hovered over northern New Mexico on Tuesday as more than 1,100 firefighters worked to build lines across rugged mountainsides and keep flames from pushing closer to summer homes and cabins. Haze from the fires drifted across New Mexico, leading residents to worry that the state might be in for a third consecutive record-breaking fire season. Fire managers and forecasters said conditions are worse than during previous years. Sparked by a downed power line, the Tres Lagunas Fire north of Pecos was 7 percent contained after charring more than 13 square miles in Santa Fe National Forest. Crews were concentrating efforts on Holy Ghost Canyon, where the flames of an overnight spot fire had raced through a few dozen acres. No structures have burned, but an evacuation order remained in place for more than 140 homes in the area and an emergency closure was issued for the entire Pecos and Las Vegas ranger district, including the Pecos Wilderness.

This photo released courtesy Zach Bryan shows a massive plume of smoke rises from the Thompson Ridge Fire burning in the Jemez Mountains north of Rio Rancho, N.M., on Tuesday. Fire information officer Gerry Perry said officials were monitoring conditions to determine when residents would be allowed to return. “We’re prepared for anything, and we’re optimistic we’ll be able to turn the corner on this thing,”

Perry said. “But the weather certainly is not helping us and added to that is the significant period of drought that this area has endured.” Some residents stayed behind, including Scott Rice and his son, Connor. They were pumping water

from the Pecos River to hose down areas near their barn and house. Kay Rice told The New Mexican that said she wasn’t worried about her husband and son. “They are smart enough to know when to drop the hose and leave,”

she said. “But I also knew my husband wasn’t going to leave. He would do what he had to do to stay and defend the house. “This isn’t our second or third home,” she added. “This is where we live. We raised our kids there.” To the west, in the

Jemez Mountains, firefighters were also dealing with hot, dry and windy weather as they battled the Thompson Ridge Fire. It has burned about 7 square miles of rugged territory covered by conifer and ponderosa pine. Homes in the Thompson Valley, Rancho de la Cueva and Elk Valley areas remained under evacuation orders. The fire was sparked by a downed power line owned by the Jemez Mountains Electric Co-op. The utility is already f acing at least two lawsuits stemming from the 2011 Las Conchas Fire that ignited when a tree fell onto a power line. “This isn’t the first or the last time that this has happened,” Valerie Espinoza, vice-chair of the state Public Regulation Commission, told the Albuquerque Journal. “I think we can do more to ensure that we have safe electrical lines and that the co-ops have the resources they need to be better prepared to do their jobs.” Utility officials said changing regulations to make it easier to widen rights of way and educating property owners about keeping trees from growing into power lines could ease the problem.

UK to help smokers cut down with nicotine products LONDON (AP) — Britain’s independent health watchdog says for people who can’t quit smoking cold turkey, it’s OK to use nicotine products to help them cut down. For years, Britain has encouraged people who wanted to kick the habit to simply stop, with various supports available, including counseling and nicotine products. But nicotine replacement therapies were not recommended for people who still wanted to cut down but not quit immediately. But in advice issued Wednesday, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence said people unable to give up cigarettes in a single attempt should

switch to licensed nicotine products, including gum, sprays and patches to at least reduce how much they smoke. The advice doesn’t recommend e-cigarettes, which aren’t yet regulated in Britain. Recommendations made by NICE are typically adopted by the government. “People smoke because of the nicotine, but they die because of the tar in tobacco,” said Mike Kelly, director of NICE. When people smoke fewer cigarettes without using nicotine replacement therapies, they typically inhale more deeply and ingest more tar, he said. By using nicotine products such as gum or patches, they can smoke less without any acute withdrawal symp-

toms. Kelly said smokers were still encouraged to quit entirely but that this new advice gives them another option. According to NICE’s assessment of past research, nicotine replacement products can be safely used with cigarettes for at least five years. NICE advised heavy smokers that they may need more than one product if they do try to quit. The agency also said nicotine replacement therapies can be used for as long as they curb the urge to smoke and in the long term to prevent relapses. About one in five people in the U.K. smoke, and tobacco is estimated to cost the health system nearly 3 billion ($4.6 billion U.S.)

every year. “Since tobacco is by far the most harmful available source of nicotine, switching to alternatives … is the obvious healthier choice,” John Britton, chairman of the Royal College of Physician’s Tobacco Advisory Group, said in a statement. “This guidance has the potential to change millions of lives for the better.” In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration advises people to use nicotine replacement therapies when they want to quit. The agency says the products should be used as part of an attempt to quit smoking and should not be used indefinitely.

Senators blast military response to sex assaults House looks to aid victims

/LQGD / &DQWUHOO &$320 &OHUN RI &RXQFLO   Yard Sale

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The House passed legislation Tuesday designed to make it easier for veterans to obtain financial compensation for injuries or illness linked to sexual abuse while in the military. About 4,000 veterans last year sought compensation from the federal government for post-traumatic stress disorder and other illness connected to military sexual trauma, showing that the problem of sexual abuse in the military has longstanding repercussions for the victims and for taxpayers. The Department of Veterans Affairs says about half of military sexual trauma-related claims are approved, but lawmakers say the rate should be higher. The House bill, sponsored by Democratic Rep. Chellie Pingree of Maine, recommends that the department update its guidelines for dealing with disability claims related to sex abuse. Until it does, the VA must meet extensive reporting requirements, including a monthly report to all veterans who submit a disability claim connected to military sexual abuse or who seek treatment for illnesses or injuries related to sex abuse. The legislation was passed by voice vote Tuesday and drew bipartisan support from leaders of the House Committee on Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Affairs. The bill does not stipulate exactly how the VA should revamp the claims process when it comes to military sexual trauma claims. The Senate version lays out a clearer path that many supporters would like to see the VA follow. They want the VA to let the veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s testimony serve as sufficient proof that an assault occurred. Currently, the VA considers a range of evidence when determining whether an assault or harassment occurred. Under current policy, the proof can include statements from colleagues, friends or family, documentation of a request for transfer, or evidence of a change in job performance. mander in our military justice system is absolutely critical to any solution.â&#x20AC;? But Gillibrand defended her proposal, which has garnered 18 cosponsors in two weeks. She said victims of sexual assault are reluctant to report the crimes to their commanders because they fear their allegations will be dismissed and they might face retaliation. Aggressive reforms in the militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal code are needed to force cultural changes, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have lost the trust of the men and women who rely on you,â&#x20AC;? Gillibrand said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid to report. They think their careers will be over. They fear retaliation. They fear being blamed. That is our biggest challenge right there.â&#x20AC;? Dempsey and the service chiefs told the committee they back Defense Secretary Chuck Hagelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April recommendation to change the Uniform Code of Military Justice and largely strip commanding officers of the power to toss out a military verdict. That change is included in several of the Senate proposals including Gillibrandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and is likely to be adopted by the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday in its version of the annual defense policy bill. But Gillibrand and several other senators said that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nearly enough. Several members of the committee noted that American allies including Great Britain, Israel and Australia have already have taken serious cases outside the chain of command. The U.S. military leaders said they had just begun to study the changes to see how they might apply to this country. The committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Democratic chairman, Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, opened the hearing by saying the problem of sexual assault â&#x20AC;&#x153;is of such a scope and magnitude that it has become a stain on our military.â&#x20AC;? Levin has not endorsed any of the bills. The military leaders didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dispute Levinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sexual assault and harassment are like a cancer within the force, a cancer that left untreated will destroy the fabric of our force,â&#x20AC;? Odierno said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imperative that we take a comprehensive approach to prevent attacks, to protect our people, and where appropriate, to prosecute wrongdoing and hold people accountable.â&#x20AC;? While acknowledging the problem

and accepting that legislation is inevitable, the military leaders insisted that commanders keep their authority to handle serious offenses including sexual assault cases that occur in their units. The Air Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top officer, Gen. Mark Welsh, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Commanders having the authority to hold airmen criminally accountable for misconduct â&#x20AC;Ś is crucial to building combatready, disciplined units.â&#x20AC;? But, their voices rising, female members of the committee complained that the militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reporting process fails to recognize the seriousness of rape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about sex,â&#x20AC;? said McCaskill, a former county prosecutor in Missouri. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about assaultive domination and violence. And as long as those two get mushed together, you all are not going to be as successful as you need to be at getting after the most insidious part of this, which is the predators in your ranks that are sullying the great name of our American military.â&#x20AC;? The Pentagon estimated in a recent report that as many as 26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted last year, up from an estimated 19,000 assaults in 2011, based on an anonymous survey of military personnel. While the number of sexual assaults that members of the military actually reported rose 6 percent to 3,374 in 2012, thousands of victims were still unwilling to come forward despite new oversight and assistance programs aimed at curbing the crimes, the report said. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., suggested that youth is partly to blame for the problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The young folks that are coming into each of your services are anywhere from 17 to 22 or 23,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hormone level created by nature sets in place the possibility for these types of things to occur.â&#x20AC;? But Chambliss also said the military and Congress need to do far more to stop sexual assaults from occurring. Commanders and senior enlisted troops are ultimately responsible for ensuring that their units donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t develop climates conducive to sexual assaults and harassment. But Dempsey said that he and other military leaders havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kept their fingers on the pulse of their units as closely as they should over the past decade due to the heavy pace of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; U.S. senators dressed down senior military leaders Tuesday, led by female lawmakers, combat veterans and former prosecutors who insisted that sexual assault in the ranks has cost the services the trust and respect of the American people as well as the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s men and women in uniform. Summoned to Capitol Hill, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the beribboned four-star chiefs of the service branches conceded in an extraordinary hearing that they had faltered in dealing with sexual assault. One said assaults were â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a cancerâ&#x20AC;? in the military. But they strongly opposed congressional efforts to strip commanders of their traditional authority to decide whether to level charges in their units. Members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, especially the panelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven female senators, grilled the chiefs about whether the militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly male leadership understands differences between relatively minor sexual offenses and serious crimes that deserve swift and decisive justice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not every single commander necessarily wants women in the force. Not every single commander believes what a sexual assault is. Not every single commander can distinguish between a slap on the (butt) and a rape because they merge all of these crimes together,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. Frustration among the senators seemed to boil over as they discussed recent high-profile cases and statistics on sexual assault that underscored the challenges the Defense Department and Congress face. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a Navy veteran of Vietnam, said a woman came to him the previous night and said her daughter wanted to join the military. She asked McCain if he could give his unqualified support to her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could not,â&#x20AC;? McCain said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cannot overstate my disgust and disappointment over the continued reports of sexual misconduct in our military. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been talking about the issue for years, and talk is insufficient.â&#x20AC;? The committee is considering seven legislative proposals, including one introduced by Gillibrand that would deny commanders the authority to decide when criminal charges are filed and remove the ability of senior officers to convene courts-martial. More than 40 senators are sponsors or co-sponsors of the proposals, several of which have overlapping provisions. A bill by Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., would provide any victims with a special military lawyer who would assist them throughout the process. Another, sponsored by Sens. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, would require any service member found guilty of rape or sexual assault receive a minimum punishment of a dismissal or a dishonorable discharge. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., introduced a bill with provisions that require commanders to submit reports of sexrelated offenses to more senior officers within 24 hours. Dempsey and the service chiefs warned against making the dramatic changes called for in Gillibrandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislation. Removing commanders from the military justice process, Dempsey said, would undercut their ability to preserve good order and discipline in their units. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot simply legislate our way out of this problem,â&#x20AC;? said Gen. Ray Odierno, the Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief of staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without equivocation, I believe maintaining the central role of com-

Buccs back for more BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@civitasmedia.com

COVINGTON

They may not have talked about it all season. But anything less would have been a letdown. Now that they know they’ll be taking part in the Division IV state semifinal round for the third straight season, though, the Covington Buccaneers are ready to discuss their accomplishment — and the things they still want to accomplish. “To be honest, we hadn’t even talked about state once all year until the day after our regional final,” Covington coach Dean Denlinger said. “The girls are excited to go again. But even though we didn’t talk about it, they’ve had that expectation in their minds all year. “It’s hard to repeat in this sport. It’s not often a team gets to go three years in a row, especially in Division IV. Still,

we’ve been raising the bar every day in every practice. If we wouldn’t have qualified, it would have been a big disappointment to these girls.” Facing disappointment, though, is not something Denlinger has had to face while coaching this team. “This is a special group. They really are a family,” Denlinger said. “There’s no animosity between them, they play together and they have an identity. They gelled together back in January on the first day of our weight program, and they’ve just continued to get stronger since. “And you know what? I’d be telling you the exact same thing if we’d lost back in the sectional final or the district final. This is just a special group.” This time, Covington is heading to state as the favorite, though. The Buccs are 30-0 and have been the top-ranked

TROY Regional champion pole vaulter Nathan Fleischer, the Trojan boys 4x100 relay team and six Troy girls across three relay teams and the open 400 will make the trip to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium Friday and Saturday to compete

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State University President Gordon Gee abruptly announced his retirement Tuesday after he came under fire for jokingly referring to “those damn Catholics” at Notre Dame and poking fun at the academic quality of other schools. The remarks were first reported last week by The Associated Press, and Ohio State at the time called them unacceptable and said it had placed Gee on a “remediation plan” to change his behavior. Gee, 69, said in a teleconference that the furor was only part of his decision to retire, which he said he had been considering for a while. He said his age and the start of a long-term planning process at the university were also factors. “I live in turbulent times and I’ve had a lot of headwinds, and so almost every occasion, I have just moved on,” he said. Gee explained away the abrupt timing by saying he was “quirky as hell” and hated long transitions. According to a recording of a Dec. 5 meeting obtained by the AP under a GEE public records request, Gee, a Mormon, said Notre Dame was never invited to join the Big Ten athletic conference because “you just can’t trust those damn Catholics.” Gee also took shots at schools in the Southeastern Conference and the University of Louisville, according to the recording of the meeting of the school’s Athletic Council. Gee apologized when the comments were disclosed, saying they were “a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate.” His decision to retire was first reported by The Columbus Dispatch. Robert Schottenstein, who as chairman of the university’s board of trustees condemned the remarks last week as “wholly unacceptable” and “not presidential in nature,” deflected questions about whether Gee had been

Milton’s Martin now a two-trick pony Football standout will make first state track appearence BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor colinfoster@civitasmedia.com As far as Milton-Union coach Michael Meredith is concerned, junior Wes Martin is not only the best athlete at Milton-Union High School, but he is possibly the best

in southwest Ohio. Martin, a standout lineman for the football team, is no longer a one-trick pony. He can now be considered a two-sport threat after qualifying for the Division II state meet in the shot put. “Going to state in the shot put, I mean he’s just one of the best ath-

WEST MILTON letes in southwest Ohio,” Meredith said. “He’s just one of those kids, he’s got a bunch of full-ride scholarships for football and he’s great at what he does on the track.” Martin placed fourth at Saturday’s regional meet with a throw of 49-9.25. The Milton coaching staff is hoping Martin saved his best for last. “It’s the first time at state for

him,” Meredith said. “He wants to go out and throw his best throw. If you go there and throw your best throw by just one inch, at least you threw your best. Big Wes is always real cool, real calm. He’s one of those dudes that likes to joke around and laugh alot. I want to see him get fired up. I really just hope he handles the pressure well.” The shot put kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Friday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.

Pistorius briefly back in court for hearing PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius stood for his entire 15-minute court hearing Tuesday, staring straight ahead, hands clasped in front of him and giving away little emotion as the world got its first close up view of the doubleamputee Olympian and murder suspect in nearly four months. In stark contrast to the sobbing figure Pistorius presented through much of

his bail hearing in February, the athlete appeared composed as Acting Chief Magistrate Daniel Thulare postponed the case until Aug. 19 to allow police more time to investigate the Valentine’s Day killing of his girlfriend. Pistorius spoke just three words in court after the magistrate asked him if he understood he was still bound by the same bail conditions and must

reappear then. “Yes, your honor,” Pistorius replied in a voice which croaked at first, but which also had an air of newfound calm ahead of a trial which won’t start until September, at least, and will likely be a long, slow process. Pistorius faces a life sentence in prison, with a minimum of 25 years, if convicted of premeditated murder, the charge against him for the Feb. 14 shoot-

ing death of Reeva Steenkamp. Having faced up to the rows of television cameras and photographers that gathered around him Tuesday when he entered Court C, clamoring for their first images of him in months, Pistorius then kissed a family member and left the dock after the short appearance. He didn’t comment to reporters. In a macabre coincidence, the case will contin-

ue on what would have been Steenkamp’s 30th birthday, and the model and law graduate’s parents this week pleaded in an interview with a British television channel for answers to the killing where only Pistorius and Steenkamp were present. “I want to know why he shot her because she must have been so afraid,” Steenkamp’s mother, June Steenkamp, told Channel 5.

The extension was sought by the prosecution, and will eventually give investigators six months to gather evidence, interview witnesses and prepare a case against Pistorius by the time he returns to court in August. Prosecutors said police should finish their investigation by then and the trial could start in September, but a verdict possibly won’t come until next year.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 of late,” Metz, the Troy boys coach, said. “He’s been able to do enough and keep winning for the last few weeks. But that’s not going to happen this weekend. He’s going to have to rise to the competition. “If he hits a 14-9 or even a 15-0 like he’s capable of, he could end up on that podium. The sky’s the limit for him.” And while Fleischer qualifying was something of a foregone conclusion, the 4x100 relay team worked hard for its return trip. Devante Bush, Miles Hibbler, Nick Zimmer and Blake Williams came from behind on the anchor leg to finish fourth and get through — which sent Metz into a fist-pumping show of excitement. “Oh yeah, I was (pumped). I’m not going to lie,” Metz said. Bush, Hibbler and Zimmer all ran at state last season, while Williams was an alternate. And it was Williams’ anchor leg that helped propel the team to state level — and they’re making sure to savor the opportunity in addition to preparing. “We’ve had a good week of practice, and the guys are excited,” Metz said. “We make sure state is a special event, and we make sure to celebrate. But we’ve still got lots to do. We’re not happy with just making it. But in Division I, it’s so tough just to get here. You have to enjoy it. “The goal is to qualify for Saturday’s finals. It’s tough to qualify on that first day. But the way these guys go out and compete, anything is possible. We went into the regional sitting in fifth and got fourth. We’re just going to go out and attack like we have all year.” Troy girls coach Snyder spent most of Friday at the regional finals in fistpumping mode after watching the 4x100, 4200 and 4x400 relay teams all advance to state, with sophomore Gracie Huffman — who is on all three of those teams — also advance in the 400. “That’s a huge accomplishment (qualifying for state in four events),” Snyder said. “It shows the jump she made from last year. She often has the fastest time in the 100, 200 and 400 for us, too. But she realized she wasn’t making it in four events without some help. “In Division I, you can’t get a relay team to state with just one good one. You need four good ones.” Luckily, Troy has six of them. Senior Todda Norris is also on all three relay

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 forced out by the board. “It’s really about a decision to retire for the reasons that Gordon has articulated,” Schottenstein said. Ohio State, one of the biggest universities in the nation, with 65,000 students, named provost Joseph Alutto as interim president. Gee, a familiar figure on campus with his bowties and owlish eyeglasses, has repeatedly gotten in trouble over the years for verbal gaffes. Ohio State trustees learned of Gee’s latest remarks in January and created the remediation plan. In a March 11 letter, the trustees warned any repeat offenses could lead to his firing and ordered him to apologize to those he offended. But it appeared that several of Gee’s apologies came only in the last week or so as the school prepared to respond to the AP’s inquiries. Gee said Tuesday he waited until recently to apologize in person to the Notre Dame president, Rev. John Jenkins, because they had a longscheduled meeting. Schottenstein said the board was satisfied with Gee’s response to the letter. In the recording of his meeting with the Athletic Council, Gee said that the top goal of Big Ten presidents is to “make certain that we have institutions of like-minded academic integrity. So you won’t see us adding Louisville.” After laughter from the audience, Gee added that the Big Ten wouldn’t add the University of Kentucky, either. When asked by a questioner how to respond to SEC fans who say the Big Ten can’t count because it now has 14 members, Gee said: “You tell the SEC when they can learn to read and write, then they

In the last three weeks, he has set a GWOC meet record, along with winning district and regional titles. teams, fellow senior Ashley Rector is on the 4x200 and 4x400 teams and senior Catelyn Schmiedebusch is on the 4x400. The three of them, as well as Huffman and junior Shanelle Byrd, ran in the 4x200 last season at state. Senior Sharice Hibbler will be running in her first state meet in the 4x100. “She (Hibbler) went as an alternate last year, and it’s great that the 4x100 was able to go so now she’ll be able to compete,” Snyder said. “She’s been the leadoff on that 4x100 team since she was a freshman. “We had a rain delay at the GWOC meet, and we all sat down and talked about how we wanted to handle district and beyond. A lot of the girls sacrificed individual events and put all of their eggs in our relay basket. It’s going to be a long time until we have a group of runners like this again, so we wanted to take advantage of it and see what we could do. The girls really wanted to do this together.” And even though the four seniors will be competing for the last time in Trojan uniforms, their accomplishments will be felt for years and years —

can figure out what we’re doing.” Notre Dame and the SEC had no comment on Gee’s retirement. Gee also came under fire in 2011 for some offhand remarks he made during a scandal on football coach Jim Tressel’s watch. Asked whether he had considered firing Tressel, Gee said: “No, are you kidding? Let me just be very clear: I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me.” Last year, Gee apologized for saying that coordinating the school’s many divisions was like running the Polish army, a remark that a Polish-American group called bigoted. In 1992, in a moment of frustration over highereducation funding, Gee referred to then-Gov. George Voinovich as “a damn dummy.” Gee was named the country’s best college president in 2010 by Time magazine. He has held the top job at West Virginia University, the University of Colorado, Brown and Vanderbilt. He was Ohio State president from 1990 to 1997 and returned in 2007. He makes about $1.9 million a year in base pay, retirement benefits and other compensation. He is a prolific fundraiser and is leading a $2.5 billion campaign at Ohio State. He is omnipresent on campus, attending everything from faculty awards events to dormitory pizza parties. Gov. John Kasich praised Gee on Tuesday as “a tremendous partner in transforming Ohio’s fragmented higher education system into one better focused on fueling Ohio’s economic recovery and helping students meet their goals.” The president of the American Council on Education said Gee, who is a board member, left an “indelible mark” on each institution he served.

years. They’ve exceeded even my own expectations for them, and they’ve set a new standard for what a Troy track team can be.”

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 team in the state almost all season — another thing they haven’t really discussed or thought about. They will face a familiar opponent, too — Strasburg-Franklin. When they made their first trip to the state semifinal two seasons, the Buccs lost to the eventual champion Tigers 2-0. And after a 5-3 loss to eventual runner-up Vienna Mathews in last year’s semifinal, Covington has one thing on its mind.

“The girls have one thing on their minds — bringing home that championship plaque,” Denlinger said. “We’ve just got to be focused and go do it. The stakes are higher, the competition is better and we’re also facing a team that’s been there before. “Once you get to this level, you can throw the rankings out the window. We didn’t even talk about that No. 1 ranking all year. Records don’t matter now, either. We’re going to have to play well and bring our ‘A’ game.”

Federer loses quick in French Open quarterfinal PARIS (AP) — A point from losing the first set of his French Open quarterfinal, Roger Federer shanked a routine forehand, sending the ball 10 feet beyond the opposite baseline. The Court Philippe Chatrier crowd roared with approval, then loudly chanted the last name of Federer’s opponent, Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. That shot was a clear

indication that Federer was hardly Federesque on this day. There were plenty of others: He argued with the chair umpire about a call. He dumped overhead smashes into the net. And in a truly rare ungraceful moment, he failed to put a racket to or get out of the way of a backhand flip by a sliding Tsonga, instead getting hit on the back. All in all, Federer looked lost out there

Tuesday against the sixth-seeded Tsonga, who pounded his way to a 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 victory over the 17-time Grand Slam champion in a 1-hour, 51minute mismatch remarkable for its lopsidedness and brevity. “I struggled a little bit everywhere. To be honest, personally, I’m pretty sad about the match and the way I played. But that’s how it goes. I tried to figure things out, but it was

difficult. And Jo does a good job keeping the pressure on,” Federer said. “He was just … better in all areas,” continued Federer, whose lone French Open title, in 2009, allowed him to equal Pete Sampras’ thenrecord of 14 major championships. “He returned better than I did. Served better than I did. I struggled to find my rhythm.” While Federer quickly faced a big deficit

Tuesday and never recovered, Serena Williams was able to get out of a much smaller spot of trouble. Like Federer, Williams is 31. Like Federer, she’s won more than a dozen Grand Slam titles, 15. And like Federer, only one of those trophies came at Roland Garros, in 2002. Trailing in the third set against 2009 French Open winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, the No. 1-

seeded Williams won five games in a row en route to a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victory that put her back in the semifinals at Paris after a decade’s absence. Williams had lost four consecutive quarterfinals at Roland Garros in 2004, 2007, 2009 (to Kuznetsova), 2010 and so when she was serving while down 2-0 in the final set Tuesday, “I thought, you know, ‘Can’t go out like this again.’”

Phelps leads Yankees past Indians NEW YORK (AP) — David Phelps followed the worst start of his young career with his best, allowing a mere infield single in six shutout innings and getting home run help from Mark Teixeira as the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 Tuesday night. Teixeira hit his second homer of the season since coming off the disabled list last Friday. His three-run shot made it 4-0 in the third inning, and came a day after he lined a grand slam against Cleveland. Drew Stubbs hit a threerun homer in the seventh off Joba Chamberlain. But Nick Swisher lined into a key double play in the eighth and the Indians dropped their third in a row and seventh straight on the road they also lost short-

stop Asdrubal Cabrera, putting him on the disabled list after he strained his right quadriceps Monday night. Phelps (4-3) neatly bounced back from his previous outing, when he gave up five runs while getting just one out against the New York Mets. The 26-year-old righty struck out leadoff man Michael Bourn on three pitches and wound up fanning seven with four walks. The lone hit against him came when Stubbs beat out a slow roller to shortstop in the third. Phelps, in his second major league season, walked the first two batters in the fifth. After a visit from pitching coach Larry Rothschild, Phelps retired the next three hitters. David Robertson escaped a first-and-second,

no-out jam in the eighth when Swisher lined to second baseman Jayson Nix, whose flip doubled Jason Kipnis off second. The bad luck against his former team left Swisher in an 0for-13 rut. Mariano Rivera struck out two in the ninth for his 21st save. Mike Aviles flied out to end it, then made a beeline toward plate umpire Tony Randazzo to confront him and was ejected Aviles, who disputed a called third strike earlier in the game, was upset that the first pitch in the final at-bat was ruled a foul instead of a ball. Scott Kazmir (3-3) breezed through the first two innings, then gave up five straight hits to open the third. Teixeira capped the burst with his homer, tagging a familiar victim

Teixeira is 10 for 20 with four doubles and eight walks lifetime against Kazmir. Lyle Overbay opened the Yankees’ third with a double and Chris Stewart singled, but was caught trying to advance. Ichiro Suzuki followed with an RBI single, Nix singled and Teixeira homered down the left field line. NOTES: The Yankees are 5-1 against Cleveland this year. … Indians RHP Corey Kluber (3-3, 4.36) starts Wednesday afternoon vs. Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (5-4, 3.71). … As part of his farewell tour, Rivera met with longtime Yankee Stadium employees before the game. Among them were ticket takers who have worked for the team for more than 40 years.

Rockies rally past Reds CINCINNATI (AP) Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning a call changed after the umpires initially ruled fan interference and the Colorado Rockies held on for a 5-4 victory Tuesday night that ended their streak of six consecutive losses to the Cincinnati Reds. A fan with a glove in left field reached and grabbed Tulowitzki’s fly ball off Sam LeCure (1-1). The umpires initially ruled fan interference, but changed the call and awarded Tulowitzki his 13th homer after reviewing video that showed the ball had cleared the wall. The Reds took a 4-3 lead in the seventh on Edgmer Escalona’s balk for a third-to-first pickoff fake a play that was outlawed this season.

Indiana Pacers’ Paul George (24) pursues Miami Heat’s LeBron James (6) during Game 7 in their NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals playoff series Monday in Miami.

No stopping LeBron James Spurs’ Leonard eyes matchup SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Hours away from drawing the toughest defensive assignment of his two-year career with the San Antonio Spurs, Kawhi Leonard wasn’t feverishly taking mental notes of how to guard LeBron James. The second-year pro was simply relaxing at home Monday night, watching Miami rout the Indiana Pacers 99-76 to set up a showdown with San Antonio in the NBA Finals. Seeing how Paul George and Lance Stephenson defended James wasn’t as important to Leonard as the outcome. “I was just laying (down), seeing who we were going to play,” he said. Leonard means no disrespect. He is just happy to know who the Spurs will play after a week’s wait following their sweep of the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference finals. The 6-foot-7 Leonard will draw the primary defensive assignment against James, the reigning NBA Finals MVP and two-time league MVP who is averaging 26.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists in the playoffs. James is also shooting 51 percent overall and 39 percent on 3-pointers. “It’s just a great challenge for me to try to help my team win by playing good defense on him,” Leonard said. “I just accept the challenge and am ready to play.” Facing a player on a hot streak isn’t new to San Antonio this postseason following showdowns with Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Memphis’ Zach Randolph. After averaging 24 points and 10 assists in an upset of the Denver Nuggets, sweet-shooting Curry was held to 18.2 points and 6 assists against the Spurs excluding a 44-point, 11-assist effort in a Game 1 loss by the Warriors. Randolph averaged 18.4 points and 10.8 rebounds while bullying the Oklahoma City Thunder in the paint, but

was limited to 11 points and 12 rebounds against the Spurs. His production included a two-point, seven-rebound effort in a Game 1 loss to San Antonio. In some respect, the Spurs are facing a hybrid of Curry and Randolph in the 6-foot-8, 250-pound James. “He’s great on offense and defense,” said Leonard, who has a 7-3 wingspan. “He can pass, he can shoot the ball, gets offensive rebounds and defensive rebounds and he can guard the best player on the other team.” While Leonard will be James’ primary defender, the Spurs will attempt to move him toward defensive help in the hope he gives up the ball. It’s a strategy that helped San Antonio limit opponents to 44.2 percent shooting, which was eighth in the league. But James isn’t the only player the Spurs know they will need a group mentality to defend, starting with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. “They’ve got more than just the big fella,” San Antonio guard Danny Green said. “They are a great team. There is a reason they won last year, and they also added some pieces this year. On paper they have a really good team. Obviously they haven’t been playing as well as of late, but they have so many shooters surrounding the Big 3 they are a mismatch problem for any team.” There was speculation that Miami was vulnerable considering Wade was battling a knee injury and Bosh was struggling offensively, leading to a Game 7 against a young Pacers team. Spurs forward Tim Duncan was stunned by that assertion. “I don’t know how to answer that question,” Duncan said. “I will know that when they stand in front of us if that be the case, but as of right now they are still the defending champs and the best team in the regular season.”

Browns running back Richardson sits out of practice BEREA (AP) — Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson will not participate in any minicamp practices this week because of a lower right leg strain. Coach Rob Chudzinski said the second-year pro is being held out of the threeday session “strictly as a precaution,” but should be ready for the start of training camp July 26. Richardson rushed for a team-high 950 yards and scored 12 touchdowns last season. “We don’t want his muscle strain to get any worse, so we’re going to rest him now and give him a full summer to prepare,” Chudzinski said Tuesday following the first minicamp workout. “He could

have went out, if necessary, and practiced these next few days, but we just didn’t see any sense in it. “My expectation is he’ll be out there, ready to go, for us on the first day of training camp.” Richardson, the third overall draft pick in 2012 out of Alabama, sat out Cleveland’s final set of organized team activities last week with the injury. At the time, he vowed, “Injuryprone is not going to be me.” The Browns did not permit Richardson to speak with the media following practice, but said he would address the subject Wednesday. The 5-foot-9, 230-pound back walked off the field without a limp and did not acknowledge the reporters following him.

Chudzinski, though, did his best to downplay the severity of Richardson’s injury, which occurred in early May while running at Cleveland’s team headquarters. “I don’t know the medical (risks going forward), but he’s got a strain right now,” the first-year coach said. “I’m not concerned about anything else at this stage. “My only concern, really, is Trent needing to stay into it mentally while he’s out. So far, he’s done a great job taking mental reps and getting into game shape.” While his teammates ran position drills and 11on-11 sets, Richardson alternated between riding the bike, lifting kettle bells and medicine balls, and

working with exercise ropes. Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya lined up together in the backfield on Cleveland’s first-team offense, while Brandon Jackson and Dion Lewis worked with the lower units. “This is a good opportunity for other guys to get extra reps right now,” Chudzinski said. “On April 1, I said this was a fresh start for everyone. I’m really pleased with the effort and energy I’ve seen from all of them so far.” The 6-foot, 225-pound Hardesty served as Richardson’s backup in 2012, rushing for a careerhigh 271 yards and one touchdown. His 4.2-yard average per carry led the

Browns, and was significantly higher than Richardson (3.6). Hardesty was chosen by Cleveland in the second round of the 2010 draft, but didn’t make his NFL debut until the next season after undergoing his second reconstructive knee surgery. “Montario has done a great job in the weight room, putting muscle on,” Chudzinski said. “He’s got natural instincts as a runner that you can’t teach. I’ve also been impressed with the way he’s caught the ball. I don’t think he’s dropped one pass yet this offseason.” Ogbonnaya has been the Browns’ third-down back for two seasons, catching 24 passes for 187 yards in

2012. The fifth-year pro also listed at 6-0 and 225 previously played with the Rams and Texans. In a new twist at minicamp, Ogbonnaya saw some snaps at fullback and blocked for Hardesty on first and second downs. “We’re moving Oby around a little bit because we know he’s going to do the right things,” said Chudzinski, whose offensive coordinator is longtime NFL coach Norv Turner. “He’s the kind of guy who is dependable and accountable, and a real asset to any team. “Even though Trent will be back with the (first unit) when he comes back, we really like Montario and Oby, and are glad to have them as part of the group.”
