Sandusky sent to prison In what sounded at times like a locker room pep talk, Jerry Sandusky rambled in his red prison suit about being the underdog in the fourth quarter, about forgiveness, about dogs and about the movie “Seabiscuit.” With his accusers seated behind him in the courtroom, he denied committing “disgusting acts” against children and instead painted himself as the victim. And then, after he had said his piece, a judge sentenced him to 30 to 60 years in prison Tuesday. See Page 18.

Fire damages Piqua business BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media A Monday morning blaze tore through Miami Valley Polishing, 220 Fox Drive, after the fire started in the furnace area of the factory and aluminum and magnesium dust acted like a powder keg, fire officials said. The fire began at approximately 6 a.m. and about 30 employees were either on site or inside at the time and attempts to extinguish the growing fire were unsuccessful by employees, all of whom managed to evacuate the factory safely. A total of 40 employees worked at the site, which only operates one shift. No injuries were reported as a result of the blaze. The structural integrity of the facility was called into question as firefighters doused the fire from the outside before getting the clear to enter the building for further inspection to determine



Firefighters from Piqua,Troy and Covington battle a fire that consumed a large manufacturing facility at 220 Fox Drive on Monday. a damage assessment, which remains undetermined. However, one estimate given by one of the business’s owners estimated damages to equipment alone at half a million dollars. “The problem is that the structure has a flat truss roof and with this much fire we are worried about structural collapse,” said Piqua Fire Chief Mike Rindler at the fire scene. “We also are fighting it from the exterior so nobody gets hurt.”

Rindler added that firefighters dealt with the challenge of getting to the base of the fire, but eventually they were able to get inside. Fire officials remained on the scene Monday afternoon. The manufacturing facility, which polishes metal, has been in business since 2008. There was a large amount of cardboard located inside the structure that helped feed the blaze after the aluminum and magnesium dust

caused it to spread instantly, fire officials said. Piqua Fire Capt. John Kendall said it was the city’s largest fire since the the May 2006 blaze that destroyed the city’s old historic grain elevator, formerly located at 101 S. Main St. Kendall said many of the beams inside the structure, which was entirely gutted, were damaged and warped from the 1,100 degree temperatures created by the inferno. “It was like a dust explosion, the particles are really combustible,” Kendall said of the aluminum and magnesium dust that combusted and caused the fire to spread as quickly as it did inside the 20,000-square-foot facility. “I can’t believe we even have a building still standing.” Owner Dave Schweitzer said he was thankful for the response and aid the business received as a result of


BOE • CONTINUED FROM 1 savings and $350,000 to $375,000 projected revenue from Ohio’s new casino openings. Jones said despite that good news, property tax reimbursements are down $800,000. Expenditures are projected to decrease in fiscal year 2013 by $1.2 million, mainly due to attrition and the district’s employee buyout program instituted last year, Jones said. The contracted 2012-2014 wage freeze also has saved the district $6.4 million. The district’s salaries and benefits account for approximately 80 percent of its total general fund expenditures. Jones said staff reductions and reduced salaries will continue through 2013. In 2011, five positions were reduced, saving $500,000; in 2012, 12 positions were eliminated, saving $700,000 and in 2013, 13 positions will save approximately $1.2 million. Jones reported expenditures of $41 million over the district’s $39.8 million in revenue will eat away the more than $9.8 million in cash reserves. Cash reserves will dwindle by $8.6 million in 2014; $6.6 million in 2015; $3.3 million in 2016 and will become negative in 2017 by $1 million. Yet, the ending balance


will be in the negative by fiscal 2016 by $1,031,892 as expenditures are projected to rise to $45 million accounting for pay increases for classified and certified staff and other rising costs. Revenue is expected to stay flat around $39.8 million, not accounting a renewal of the district’s five-year 5.9-million property tax levy. Yet, Jones said the positive balance from 2013 through 2015 is a “positive sign.” “Not many school districts are able to say that,” Jones said. Board vice-president Joyce Reives said she “feels good about where we are” but had concerns about the future of negative balances in 2016 and 2017. “We’ve done a lot of reducing,” Herman said. Herman said with employment reductions, the only place to cut expenditures would be cutting programs in the future or Jones said additional revenue must be raised. Herman said conversations must start soon to make decisions about Troy City Schools’ financial future in 2016 and 2017. “We are cautious as we move forward,” Jones said. President Doug Trostle said continuing cuts would only end up sacrificing the quality of education for its students. For more information, visit

the fire. “Thank you to all of the fire departments and the surrounding businesses for their help with the employees,” he said. “There has been an outpouring of support.” Fire crews from Piqua, Troy and Covington battled the blaze for five hours as crews from Fletcher and Covington rescue squads manned the Piqua Fire Department. Law Director Stacy Wall stated in a press release the city of Piqua is “very grateful to all mutual aid departments” that assisted with the fire, including the Troy Fire Department for using their ladder truck since the city’s ladder truck is presently being serviced for a mechanical problem. The building that houses the business, one of several along the Paul Sherry Industrial Park, was constructed in 1994, according to the Piqua Fire Department.

The practices last for an hour and consist of 30 minutes of game practice followed by 30 minutes of devotions. Devotions can be conducted by coaches or persons selected by the program director if the coach is uncomfortable doing so. Following the completion of the first week, practices will be limited to just one session per week. Throughout the devotions portion of practice, coaches or volunteers will concentrate on teaching three different virtues to the children in a way that makes sense to them. Virtues that have been taught in the past include hope, self control and strength. Coaches will focus on one virtue for three weeks before heading onto the next one, and children will be given a DVD at the end of the year called Big Story, which incorporates those virtues

into the gospel of Christ. “The focus is on a God aspect, on having a relationship with him and developing a relationship with him at a younger age,” said Upward Administrative Commissioner Janet Bowling. “But not sitting down in a room and doing it, but a little more activity and having fun with it and still learning about what it is, about what God is, and what he can do for them.” All games are played at TCUMC. Once the total number of participants has been established, kids are placed on teams and in divisions according to their age. No more than 10 players can be on a team and while the score of the game isn’t kept, players will compete against others close to their age. All basketball games consist of three six minute periods per half for a total of six periods per game. Coaches will teach every player the basic rules of the game, with a new rule or concept being instilled each week. Cheerleaders will learn the basics of their activity as well. “They learn the fundamentals of basketball and cheerleading,” said Collins. “So from the standpoint of teamwork, with passing the ball, dribbling the ball, shooting the ball, they’re getting all of the funda-

mentals of basketball.” Program coaches are usually parents of the players who desired to be an integral part of the program. Other coaches or referees come from the TCUMC congregation or general public and work on a volunteer basis. All coaches are given background checks prior to working with the kids. Game officials use what is known as progressive refereeing, a concept that began at the church two years ago and waits until fouls such as traveling or double dribbling have been taught to enforce them during game play. Most rules are taught on a week to week basis. All games are played in the great hall, a gym located inside the church in front of approximately 100 family members, friends and other fans. The first game usually begins around 9 a.m. and the final game is usually played around 4 p.m. According to Bowling, the program has been successful in the past and communication will be the main factor for ensuring long term success of the program. “I think the more that we get the word out, and the more people understand how wonderful a program it is, it’ll go there, it’ll get larger and larger, and it will be a constant at this church and hopefully at other places too,” Bowling said. This year, basketball season runs from Jan. 7 to March 16. Orientation will be Oct. 13 and 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. For more information or to registesr, visit or call (937) 667-2318, Ext. 221.

MIAMI (AP) — The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday. About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night’s contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python. Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in front of the store, according to a Broward Sheriff ’s Office statement released Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy to determine a cause of death. The medical examiner’s office said Tuesday it has sent samples of Archbold’s remains for testing, but results are not expected for another week or two. “Unless the roaches were contaminated with some bacteria or other

pathogens, I don’t think that cockroaches would be unsafe to eat,” said Michael Adams, professor of entomology at the University of California at Riverside, who added that he has never heard of someone dying after consuming roaches. “Some people do have allergies to roaches,” he said, “but there are no toxins in roaches or related insects.” None of the other contestants became ill, the sheriff ’s office said. “We feel terribly awful,” said store owner Ben Siegel, who added that Archbold did not appear to be sick before the contest. “He looked like he just wanted to show off and was very nice,” Siegel said, adding that Archbold was “the life of the party.” Siegel said Archbold was selling the exotic prize to a friend who took him to the contest. The grand prize has been put aside in Archbold’s name and will be given to his estate, Siegel told the AP.

NY college gets rare Ansel Adams photos NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) — A small New York college has been given a rare collection of 75 signed Ansel Adams photographs, selected as a set by the artist himself, the college announced Tuesday. Among the images is the famous “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico” as well as several wellknown scenes of Yosemite National Park and photographs of artist Georgia O’Keeffe and photographer Alfred Stieglitz. The College of New Rochelle said that the gift, worth $2.5 million, is from Caryl Horwitz, former

director of its graduate art department. Her late husband acquired the collection in the 1980s. The 75 photographs make up what is known as Adams’ Museum Set Edition of Fine Prints, a selection he made beginning in the late 1970s. He created several museum sets before his death in 1984. Current President Judith Huntington called the donation “a profound compliment” to the 109year-old school, which has a picturesque campus in New Rochelle and five outposts in New York City.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Arab News, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Syria: The Free Syrian Army has once again demonstrated its ability to strike at the heart of the Assad regime. The military’s General Staff Command Building has been extensively damaged in two major explosions that were followed by a ground attack that last for two hours. From his presidential palace, not far away, Bashar al-Assad will have heard the explosions, maybe even have felt the force of the blasts and seen the pall of black smoke rising into the capital’s sky. … Tragically, there is rising evidence that this bitter civil conflict is heading for a stalemate with the fighters unable to make the progress they planned. Certainly, their much-heralded advance on Aleppo, which they announced they would take in a major push, has not yet succeeded. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the UN that the organization was paralyzed because Russian and Chinese vetoes in the Security Council meant that no progress could be made toward the international community finding a solution. Such an outright criticism of Moscow and Beijing demonstrates the depth of Washington’s frustration.

This strategic move aims to capitalize on the amazing economic vigor of the Asia-Pacific region and secure economic development for Siberia and the Russian Far East, sparsely populated regions that lack strong industry. Moscow’s new diplomatic drive to expand ties with Japan reflects its recognition of the importance of Japanese investment and technology. Russia needs them if it is to develop along the lines of President Vladimir Putin’s vision of a Eurasian nation. On the other hand, Russia’s rich energy resources have great appeal for Japan, a resource-poor nation which has begun exploring a future without its past dependence on nuclear power. When Japan considers investing in and cooperating with those industries, it should demand adequate and convincing explanations about the profitability of projects and require that the Russian government improve the business environment. Japan’s bitter territorial standoffs with China and South Korea are sources of worry for Russia too, which wants to enhance relations with its neighbors in the region. That is why Moscow has said it will not take sides in Japan’s spats with South Korea and China, over the Takeshima islets in the Sea of Japan and the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. Furthermore, Russia has expressed hope for a peaceful settlement. … Implementing this steadily would be the best way to make progress toward what Putin calls a mutually acceptable solution to the Northern Territories issue.

My awesome friend just ran the race of our lives It still amazes me how fast time flies when you are busy, having fun and enjoying your life. Nineteen weeks ago, I was starting my journey toward my first full marathon. I went to run group at Up and Running one night and met a girl named Tiffany. I ran with her some, but I already had one running buddy. At the end of it, Tiff and I exchanged numbers and said, “Maybe we’ll run a couple of times together.” Little did we know how much that day would change both of us. She and her mother call me “a blessing from above.” However, while I have Team G and friends from the store, Tiffany became a true blessing to me — not just in my running but in all aspects of my life. We set up a couple of morning runs; I was late a couple of times because of my continued inability to be a normal, functioning human being before 7 a.m. Tiffany — with many texts, phone calls and pep talks — successfully turned me into a morning runner for the majority of the summer. We saw sunrise after sunrise, braved the darkness, the rain,

Katie Yantis Troy Daily News Columnist the heat, a few days of chilly weather and all the obstacles nature can provide. The entire summer, we didn’t run for time, we ran for miles and we ran for ourselves. As I saw in a quote this week, “Our desire to be greater was bigger than our desire to stay the same.” Nineteen weeks, more than 300 miles and two pairs of shoes later, she walked to her own start line in Chicago. I woke up Sunday, Oct. 7, feeling anxious and excited. I texted her best friend who was in Chicago with her, so I could tell her to update me at every possible moment. I got the first text and picture at mile 3. Tiffany was smiling and waving amongst 45,000 runners and

I just started crying. Everything she worked for was unfolding for her. I continued to receive updates on her throughout the race and got another picture at mile 17. She still looked strong and happy. When I got a text from Betsy at 25.2 it said, “She is in pain, but still has lots of smiles.” I started crying again. I told Betsy and she said she had already cried a few times. I got the text a little later that said Tiffany Blount unofficial “finish” and it gave her time. She did it. Just like I knew she would. Her determination, confidence and positive attitude are unwavering. It was just amazing to me, the feeling I had — to have started something and finished it completely and to the best of my ability with someone who was as invested in my journey as she was her own. Not only was Tiffany Blount an amazing running buddy, but she is a new great friend for me. She believed in me throughout this journey when I didn’t believe in myself, she talked my ear off the last miles of our long runs to get me to run all the way

home, never left me and she made me realize that as I approach my start line and have to jump some hurdles to get there, I am not a failure, but a conquerer. That we did something great this summer and we did it together. We didn’t do it for time and we didn’t do it for money, but we did it knowing we will never win a marathon. We did it for our friendship, (when you run with someone for hours at a time, you get to know someone pretty well); we did it to prove that we can do anything we set our minds to. Tiffany, I hope I make you as proud of me in two weeks as I was of you this past weekend. You have inspired me, motivated me and pushed me beyond anything I thought I was capable of. I will remember every step of this journey to our 26.2 mile long victory! Here’s to many more miles and many more years ahead! P.S. I hope you took your ice bath.

mental examination were not revealed it seem as though the defense was dissatisfied with the results since they asked for a second opinion. Pepper has been charged with aggravated murder and he has entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. Authorities say Pepper beat to death his roommate, James R. Wolf, 65, on April 13 at 1177 Debron Road, West Milton, and attempted to stage the body to appear like an accident. Mr. Wolf sustained massive trauma to the head. McHenry said a second examination would be “helpful and needed” for his client’s case. During the competency hearing the public defenders and prosecuting attorney Tony Kendall stipulated the results of the examination be sealed and admitted them into evidence as an exhibit. McHenry and Mooney also asked for Pepper’s currently scheduled Oct. 23 trial date be continued again. Peppers’s trial, scheduled to last four days, has been continued several times in recent months. Pepper remains behind bars at the Miami County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Long-missing Marine Jury being picked in teen Craigslist case buried with honors DENVER (AP) — For 37 years, Delouise Guerra never knew for certain what happened to the young man she called her baby brother, an 18-yearold Marine from Colorado who was missing and presumed dead after a helicopter crash on the other side of the world. The Defense Department, however, told Guerra two months ago it had positively identified the remains of the man who disappeared so long ago, Pfc. James Jacques. “Oh my God, it’s a relief to know that they have found his final remains,” Guerra said. “It’s just an honor to bring him home.” The Colorado Marine was killed during the rescue of the crew of the S.S. Mayaguez, an American cargo ship seized by Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge two days earlier on May 12, 1975. Jacques was buried with full military honors at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on Tuesday on what would have been his 56th birthday. Jacques, pronounced “HAW-kas,” was among hundreds of Marines and airmen sent to storm Koh Tang Island, about 60 miles off the coast of Cambodia, to rescue the Mayaguez crew. A helicopter carrying Jacques and 25 others crashed into the surf off Koh Tang Island amid unexpectedly heavy fire from Cambodian fighters. Half the men on the helicopter were rescued, but the other 13 were declared missing, including Jacques. All 39 crew Mayaguez members were released safely by Cambodia, but some 40 U.S. servicemen were killed. Jacques’ identification dog tags were found in 1992, but his remains weren’t positively identified until this year, said Air Force Maj. Carie Parker of the Defense Prisoner of War and Missing Personnel Office. A Cambodian had turned over the remains to a U.S.-Cambodian search team in 2007. Newly available DNA technology allowed researchers to confirm the identity this year. Guerra got the news in a letter from the Marines that arrived at her Denver home on Aug. 14. Her son Bob was with her. “I started crying because I knew it was about my brother,” she said. “We were crying, we jumped, we hollered.” Guerra, now 71, was 15 when Jacques was born. “He was a very loving,


In this Oct. 5 photo Delouise Guerra poses for a photo in Denver with a 1975 photo of her younger brother, 18year-old Marine PFC James Jacques who was killed in a helicopter crash near Cambodia in 1975. Jacques remains were identified in August of this year. He was buried with full military honors at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on Tuesday on what would have been his 56th birthday. very caring well — he was my baby brother,” she said. “He was just a really good person.” Jacques grew up in La Junta, a small town about 140 miles southeast of Denver. He joined the Marines in October 1974, shortly after his 18th birthday. His family was apprehensive but didn’t try to dissuade him, Guerra said. “It was something he wanted to do,” Guerra said. “He wanted to go and serve his country and do his best.” He died just seven months after enlisting. Twelve of the 13 missing servicemen are now confirmed to have died, Parker said. She said she could not discuss the 13th because an investigation is ongoing. The Mayaguez operation is considered the last U.S. military engagement in Southeast Asia after the long and bloody war in Vietnam. The last U.S. combat troops left South Vietnam in 1973, and the South Vietnamese capital fell to North Vietnam on April 30, 1975, just two weeks before the Mayaguez engagement.

AKRON (AP) — Jury selection began Tuesday in the murder trial of a teenager who was befriended by a self-styled chaplain accused in a deadly scheme to lure victims with phony Craigslist job offers. Brogan Rafferty, 17, of Stow, is being tried as an adult. He and his co-defendant, Richard Beasley, 53, of Akron, have pleaded not guilty. Beasley will be tried separately. Three men were killed last year two in Noble County in southeast Ohio and one found slain in Summit County near an Akron shopping mall after responding to what authorities said were bogus online job postings. Rafferty, who was then 16, is suspected of helping Beasley lure victims with bogus job offers. Rafferty cannot face execution because he was a juvenile at the time of the crimes. Instead, he could face life in prison. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Beasley. Jury selection in Summit County Common Pleas Court in Akron could last several days and the trial could last through most of October. The body of David Pauley, 51, of Norfolk, Va., was found on Noble County property owned by a coal company and often leased to hunters. Timothy Kern, 47, of Massillon, was found in a shallow grave near an Akron-area shopping mall. He had been shot in the head. The body of Ralph

Geiger, 55, of Akron, was found in Noble County and had died Aug. 9 of a gunshot wound to the head. A South Carolina man, Scott Davis, escaped after being shot in the arm by hiding in woods until it got dark. He has been subpoenaed to testify at Rafferty’s trial. Beasley was a Texas parolee who returned to

High gas, diesel prices hurt Calif. farm industry When it comes to rising fuel costs, farmers get hit with a double whammy: They’re spending more to refuel farm equipment such as harvesters and tractors, and they’re having to pay fuel surcharges to people mechanically harvesting or transporting their produce. Yet they are loath to impose surcharges on anyone, because they’re afraid of being less competitive when they sell their products. The Fresno County Farm Bureau says farmers are hoping that, as economists

predicted, gas prices will stabilize in the coming days. Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday ordered state smog regulators to allow winter-blend gasoline to be sold in California earlier than usual to bring down prices. The rise in gas prices has slowed, but the price on Tuesday was still a state record and the highest in the nation. The average price for regular gas in the state was a little over $4.67 a gallon, according to the AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report. The cost increased only a fraction of a cent overnight, however compared with nearly 50 cents in the past week. The price for diesel in California averaged $4.38 per gallon as of the first week of October, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. California and U.S. diesel prices have climbed steadily from about $2 per gallon in 2009. The recent surge in gas prices came after a power outage at a California refinery that reduced supply, and corrosion issues in an important pipeline, analysts said. The refinery came back online Friday. California’s Central Valley produces much of the nation’s fruit, vegetables, nuts and dairy products, with Fresno County as the No. 1 agricultural producing county in the U.S. But customers nation-

That’s because fuel is only a small percentage of the cost of farming and getting a product to store shelves. Food prices will go up only by a few pennies on the dollar at most, Sumner said. Still, higher gas and diesel prices may make California food less competitive with overseas imports, he said. Produce that’s shipped via the ocean to a supermarket near the port would not reflect higher gas costs that U.S. produce shipped on trucks via highways would. While food prices may see a small increase, the money

300 acres near Sanger, makes only one pass, instead of three, through the orchards and vineyards with his disking machine linked to a furrower. And he keeps farm supervisors driving smaller, fuel-efficient cars around his fields. “I’m trying to figure out how to get more efficient about using the equipment and saving more fuel,” Nilmeier said. “But we’re getting down to the point where I keep looking at what else can I cut out, and I’m running out of options.”


FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Farmers in California’s agricultural heartland say record-high gas and diesel prices are putting pressure on their bottom lines, but economists say it’s unlikely that will translate into significantly higher food prices across the U.S. Keith Nilmeier, a fourthgeneration farmer in Fresno County, has cut down on using his farm equipment to compensate for climbing fuel costs. Among other changes, Nilmeier, who grows fruit on

won’t trickle down to the growers. “We farmers don’t have any way to recoup the higher gas costs or pass them on to consumers, so we have to swallow them,” said Nilmeier, who grows apricots, peaches, nectarines, grapes and oranges. To harvest grapes with a mechanical harvester, for example, Nilmeier must refuel two tractors pulling gondolas. They use 100 gallons of diesel per night, while the machine picks 140-150 tons of grapes. That means an extra $45 per night in fuel costs, he said. And it takes many days to pick the grapes. That’s not even counting the higher cost of gas for driving workers from field to field. But once products leave the farm gate, packers, refrigeration facilities, shippers, freight companies and processors all add a fuel surcharge to their customers’ bills, Nilmeier said. Many trucking companies that haul agricultural products to storage and to market impose fuel surcharges on farmers and other customers to protect themselves against fuel price fluctuations, said Michael Shaw, spokesman for the California Trucking Association, whose members move 80 percent of the cargo on California’s roads each year. But the truckers who don’t add fuel surcharges, especially small independent truckers, may find themselves in financial troubles, and may even stop driving, Shaw said. “For now, we’re trying to ride it out. But if diesel goes over $5, I’m going to have to stop,” said Joel Vargas, an independent trucker from Porterville who hauls produce from fields to packing houses. “With that kind of price, I won’t be able to support myself and my family.”

Mandel’s Senate bid faces Dems’ scrutiny CHILLICOTHE (AP) — Josh Mandel, the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, declines to take a stand on the 2009 bailout of the auto industry and reserves judgment on vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s plans for Medicare. “I have not come out in support or opposition to the bailout,� he said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. The federal government’s decision three years ago to help Chrysler and General Motors is considered crucial in Mandel’s home state of Ohio, where some 850,000 are working due to the auto industry. The economy has been on the upswing in the state, with unemployment at 7.2 percent in August, below the national average of 8.1 percent that month. Pressed for his opinion of the bailout, Mandel said twice: “It depends on who you talk to.� Mandel barely had moved into the state treasurer’s office after his November 2010 win before he was running against first-term Sen. Sherrod Brown, a populist Democrat facing strong Republican headwinds statewide. Democrats say Mandel lacks the experience and substance to earn a seat in the venerable institution. But Ohio is the ultimate battleground prize in the presidential election, and the fate of the Senate candidates is linked closely to President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney. A Republican surge could carry Mandel to victory. Four weeks out, polls show Obama and Brown with a slight edge. At a recent campaign stop, Mandel joked about his boyish appearance. “I look 19 years old,� the 35year-old Mandel said. “Twenty,� yelled one woman at the small gathering on East Main Street in the heart of southern Ohio’s Ross County. Adding to the levity, Mandel riffed on what year he’ll be shaving. For all the good-natured ribbing, this is serious business for Republicans, underscored by a sign on the wall at the GOP storefront “We need your help taking back America� as well as


This Sept. 25 file photo shows Republican Josh Mandel speaking to supporters in Cleveland. The GOP candidate for Senate in Ohio, Mandel, drew murmurs of approval from southern Ohio Republicans during his discussion of budget and energy issues — and plenty of laughs with his jokes about his boyish appearance. the placards along a winding stretch of U.S. 23 south of Chillicothe that urge Ohioans to “Vote Josh Mandel, Change Washington.� Early in this election, Republicans had a wealth of possibilities for gaining majority control of the Senate since Democrats were defending 23 seats with several vulnerable incumbents to the GOP’s 10. The Republican options have narrowed considerably with the implosion of Republican Todd Akin in a Missouri race against Sen. Claire McCaskill, the retirement of Sen. Olympia Snowe in Maine and surprisingly competitive races in Indiana and Arizona. Republicans counter that Democratic-leaning Connecticut could elect Republican Linda McMahon, giving them another

option for gaining Senate control. Republicans need a net gain of four seats to take charge, three if Romney wins the presidency. Ryan as vice president would break any tie votes. Mandel is the GOP hope in Ohio after the Republican wave of 2010 elected John Kasich governor, sent Rob Portman to the Senate and churned out multiple wins in the U.S. House and state Legislature. The onetime city councilman, state legislator and Marine who did two tours in Iraq is intent on continuing the trend against the 59-year-old Brown. “He seems like a nice kid,� said Mary Jane Hatmaker, 81, of Chillicothe after hearing Mandel’s presentation. Democrats scoff and say the kid can’t handle the truth and hasn’t done his homework.

“Josh Mandel should be ashamed of himself for ‌ ignoring his job as treasurer so he could run a campaign that’s ranged from dishonest and embarrassing to downright dirty,â€? said Justin Barasky, a spokesman for the Brown campaign. While Mandel won’t take a stand on the auto bailout, he eagerly blames Brown and the government’s effort for causing the loss of pensions for nonunion employees at Delphi Corp., a former General Motors subsidiary. “Talk to Delphi employees, tens of thousands who were stripped of their pensions because of a process that Sherrod Brown supported,â€? Mandel says. In an editorial board meeting with The Columbus Dispatch in August, Mandel called Brown “un-Americanâ€? for backing the bailout. Ohio’s Republican senator at the time, George Voinovich, also backed the bailout. Brown boasted of his support for the bailout in a July ad titled “Both from Ohio,â€? in which he appears with a Chevy Cruze. He looks under the hood at engine blocks built in Defiance and a transmission made in Toledo before driving off. “I’m proud to have led the fight for the auto rescue package,â€? Brown says. Mandel uses his presentation to the Ross County group, many of them seniors, to promise to protect Social Security and Medicare. In a follow-up, he declined to back Ryan’s plan to turn Medicare into a voucher system for those 55 and younger. “When I go to Washington, I will work in a bipartisan way to save Social Security and Medicare. Thus far I have not endorsed anyone’s specific plan,â€? Mandel said in an interview. Mandel does express strong support for legislation by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to cut off U.S. aid to Egypt, Pakistan and Libya, and skewers Brown for voting against the legislation late last month. He seems unaware that Senate Republicans and Democrats overwhelmingly opposed the legislation in part because it jeopardized assistance to the United

States’ strongest ally in the Middle East, Israel. The bill would cut off U.S. assistance to countries with diplomatic missions that are attacked any time after Sept. 1, 2012. The measure “is broadly drafted so it would potentially affect aid to any American ally (including Israel) should terrorists decide to attack, trespass or breach U.S. diplomatic facilities there,� the American Israel Public Affairs Committee wrote in a Sept. 21 letter to all senators urging them to oppose the legislation. During Senate debate on the measure, a top Republican, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, vigorously spoke out against the bill, warning of its damaging effects. The vote was 81-10. Asked about the legislation, Mandel said he backs it. Questioned about the impact on Israel, he said: “I think we need to support the U.S.-Israel relationship, but I think support for Israel should be separated from support to countries like Pakistan and Egypt.� Mandel said when he entered the race he was the “sacrificial lamb,� but it’s Brown who has been quartered and roasted by some $19 million in negative ads from Republican-leaning groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads and its sister advocacy nonprofit group, Crossroads GPS. The onslaught began in August 2011 and has continued unabated, the most spent against an incumbent in any Senate race this cycle since the Supreme Court ruling opened the door to corporations and unions to spend money on elections. Labor and environmental groups have responded with ads criticizing Mandel, while the candidates have aired their own spots. After all the charges and countercharges, Mandel and Brown will face each other in three debates within a 10-day span Oct. 15 in Cleveland, Oct. 18 in Columbus and Oct. 25 in Cincinnati. Early voting is already under way in Ohio.

Officials warn patients of meningitis outbreak COLUMBUS (AP) — Health officials in Ohio are reaching out to patients who received injections of a potentially contaminated steroid linked to a fungal meningitis outbreak that has killed at least eight people and sickened at least 105 across nine states. The one Ohio case involving a 65-yearold man who was sickened was confirmed Saturday. State and local health officials are working to ensure that the 430 people

who received the epidural injections at four health care facilities in Ohio contact their doctors. The clinics are in Dublin, Cincinnati and Marion. The Ohio Department of Health said Monday that about 88 percent of those patients have been contacted but some were not at addresses listed for patient contact information. State officials say efforts to reach the remaining patients are continuing.

ur next destination is the vast, varied land of Asia. Asia is the world’s largest continent. It contains onethird of all the dry land in the world. (Although Asia and Europe share the same land mass, they are considered separate continents for historical and cultural reasons.) Much of the land in Asia is not good for growing food, and very few people live in those areas. But Asia still has 40 percent of all the world’s people. Most of them live together in very crowded cities, such as Beijing in China or Tokyo in Japan. One area where the climate is warm and wet, which makes it very good for growing food, is India. India is one of the most densely populated places on Earth and the second most populous country. Because Asia is so big, it features great diversity. It has the world’s

two highest points – Mount Everest and K2, and its lowest inland point – the shore of the Dead Sea. It has deserts and forests and dry, grassy plains called steppes. The northern portion of Russia, called Siberia, is very cold and covered with snow most of the year. Most of Southeast Asia is dense, fertile rain forest. Asia has modern industrial cities that look very much like cities in the United States. There are also places where people live very much as their ancestors did 1,000 years ago. In much of Asia, illiteracy is common and poverty is severe. About two-thirds of the people in Asia make their living by farming. Rice is the main food and most important crop in China, Japan, India, and Southeast Asia. Coffee, olives, grapes, dates, citrus fruits, and grains are also important. In the northern parts of Asia where it is too

cold to grow food, the people raise livestock, such as reindeer, cattle, and sheep. Mandarin, a dialect of Chinese, is the most widely spoken language in Asia. In India, Hindi is the most common native language, but more than 1,000 languages are spoken there. In some places, people in one village cannot communicate with their neighbors in the next. Most Indians speak English, which helps them communicate with one another. There is a wide variety of governments in Asia, too. China and Vietnam, as well as some others, are run by Communist governments. Kings rule in Bhutan, Nepal, and Thailand. And some countries, notably India and Japan, have democratic governments.

Daughter must learn to be a responsible adult at some point Dear Annie: My husband and I have a 20-year-old daughter, "Brianna." We pay for her private college tuition, as well as all of her expenses. In August, Brianna was invited for a weeklong trip to Hawaii with her boyfriend's family. She decided to go without discussing it with us. We had made plans to get her a new apartment that week so she could move in prior to classes starting, and she totally blew us off. I am so hurt by this. It seems disrespectful to us and to the commitment she has as a daughter. I have communicated very little with her since she left for school. How can I let her know this behavior is unacceptable? I am also disappointed in her boyfriend, who has known us long enough to be more sensitive to our family. What should I do? — A Mom Dear Mom: Yes, it was rude that Brianna did not discuss the change in plans with you, but she is trying to assert her independence, and we recommend you let her. That means she should make more of her own decisions, and you need to stop paying for them. If Brianna receives a free trip to Hawaii and blows off apartment hunting, let her handle her own living arrangements. Don't do it for her or fret that she won't have a place to live. She'll manage. Let her find a part-time job to pay for things you don't want to finance. Help her become a responsible, mature adult instead of a dependent child. You'll be grateful later. Dear Annie: I've been married to "Charlie" for 35 years. He is now semi-retired and works an afternoon shift three days a week. He wakes up minutes before going to work and comes home an hour before my bedtime. On his days off, he sleeps until dinnertime. He says there is no reason to get up during the day. I have tried staying up later, but I get too sleepy. I am in my 50s now, and the kids have left the nest. I've made lots of friends who are available during the day, but I don't want to keep living this way. I miss my husband. Charlie and I have been to counseling numerous times, but it hasn't changed anything. What do I do? — Lonely in Kentucky Dear Kentucky: Charlie would rather sleep late than spend time with you. It could be that he's avoiding you, is depressed or that his internal clock is simply set later. You could try to change your sleep habits to match his, waking up later so you aren't too tired to stay up until the wee hours. Counseling helps only if both parties agree to work on what needs to be changed. If Charlie won't address this, you can get counseling on your own and decide whether you will put up with the current situation in order to stay married. If you opt to stick around, adjust your attitude so that your focus is not on Charlie and his sleep habits, but on whatever makes you happy when you're awake. Dear Annie: I am writing about the letter from "His Mom," whose 15-year-old son is having sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend. They wanted to know who is responsible for paying for the girl's birth control pills. As the mother of a 15-year-old boy, I'd like to say that what I loved about this letter is that both kids had talked to their parents about having sex. That is amazing and says a lot about both sets of parents. Kudos to them. Here's my simple response: I think the boy should pay for condoms that he assiduously wears, and the girl should pay for her birth control pills. It provides double protection for pregnancy and the added benefit of STD protection. — Jen from Connecticut Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Recipe from Heloise is a real ‘sauerkraut surprise’ Dear Heloise: I am looking for a cake recipe that I believe has sauerkraut in it. Can you help? — Helen D. in New Jersey Absolutely! Heloise’s Chocolate Sauerkraut “Surprise” Cake is moist and tasty. Just don’t tell anyone the “surprise” ingredient until he or she tries it. Gather the following ingredients: 1 1/2 cups sugar 2/3 cup shortening or butter 3 eggs 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup cocoa 2 1/4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder

Hints from Heloise Columnist 1 cup water or beer 1/2-2/3 cup sauerkraut, chopped, rinsed and drained Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs and mix well. Next, add vanilla, salt and cocoa. Mix together. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Alternating, add the dry

ingredients and the water or beer, a little at a time, to the other batter. Fold in the sauerkraut by hand. Bake in a greased and floured pan (13 by 9 inches) or cake pans (for a two-layer cake) for 35 to 45 minutes at 375 F. Frost with your favorite frosting (sour-cream or cream-cheese frosting is my favorite on this cake). This is one of many recipes available in my cake pamphlet. To receive it, send $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Cakes, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Let cake cool for about 10 minutes on a wire rack before you take it out of the pan.

Enjoy! — Heloise BROCCOLI HYBRID Dear Readers: Broccolini is showing up in more and more grocery stores. With long stalks and florets on top that resemble broccoli, it looks like a hybrid of broccoli and asparagus. However, it actually is a natural hybrid of broccoli and Chinese kale. It’s found in many produce sections, and it costs a little more than broccoli. With a very subtle, sweet flavor and a touch of pepper flavor as well, the entire vegetable can be eaten either raw or cooked your favorite way. It definitely is a vegetable worth trying, especially since it is available year-round. — Heloise



Wednesday, October 10, 2012













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As this day wears on, you will have an increasing desire to become more efficient at work. In fact, this is a good day to make plans for how to do so, especially regarding practical matters. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Someone older might have advice for you, either about your romantic life or perhaps about taking care of children. Or you might need to ask someone older or more experienced to help you with kids. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family discussions will be serious today, because people are looking for some long-range solutions. If someone older has input, you had better listen. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re in a serious frame of mind today. In fact, you might feel your glass is half-empty instead of half-full. This is just a fleeting feeling. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You’ll be looking for ways to cut your spending and reduce your debt today. You certainly won’t be throwing money around, because you feel concerned about financial matters. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Today you will find that benefits come to you through your willing acceptance of duty. You’ll feel rewarded by keeping things practical and orderly. (It is what it is.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your research skills are pretty good today. Your focus is entirely on practical matters, and you are probably working behind the scenes. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Talk to someone older or more experienced to get advice or help for something today. After all, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Discussions with authority figures are serious today. Someone might ask you about your performance. (You won’t be able to hide things; make note of this.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Later today, you can make definite, practical travel plans. However, your enthusiasm might be dampened for what is truly possible. (Believe in yourself!) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a good day to wrap up loose details about banking, debt and taxes. Get a full picture of what you owe and what you own. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today. Fortunately, you’ll be willing to put others before yourself because you feel it’s your duty. YOU BORN TODAY You are charming and gentle-hearted. People like to be in your company. You also like excitement in your life and have a vivid imagination. You work well with others and are comfortable being with all walks of life. You have the gift of being satisfied when you find what you want. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life dream big! Birthdate of: Thich Naht Hanh, spiritual teacher/peace activist; Dawn French, actress; Luke Perry, actor.

A storm that day caused flooding in Newport News and Hampton. Authorities found the body of another woman, 28-year-old Brittany Hinz, in her Newport News apartment during an evacuation of the building. Medical examiner’s office spokesman Glenn McBride tells The Daily Press that the cause of Hinz’s death hasn’t yet been determined.

Wildfire burns in Rocky Mountain National Park ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) — A wildfire burning on the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park has prompted evacuations of a nearby campground, along with backcountry campsites and trails in the area. No structures are threatened, and no evacuations have been ordered in the town of Estes Park to the east. The fire was reported around 2 p.m. Tuesday about 2 miles west of the Fern

Lake trailhead. It had grown to about 300 acres by 5 p.m. Park officials say the blaze was burning to the north in steep, forested terrain and was moving upslope toward alpine tundra. Cloudy, turbulent conditions kept a single-engine air tanker and heavy helicopter from fighting the flames from above Tuesday. Crews planned to monitor the flames overnight.

• Girls Soccer Miami East 2, Spr. Shawnee 0 SPRINGFIELD — With one regular season game left to play, the Miami East Vikings tied their school record for wins in a season with a 2-0 win at Springfield Shawnee Monday. The first goal came less than five minutes in when Haley Young sent a free kick to the far post, Abigael Amheiser one-touched it back across the goal mouth, and Katrina Sutherly followed it in for the score. Thirteen minutes into the game, the Vikings got their second when Sutherly sent a cross far post that a Shawnee defender headed past the keeper. Madison Linn had five saves in the goal for the Vikings, earning her 11th shutout of the season. The Vikings also tied the record last year when they won in the district finals, so not only is breaking the record entirely possible, extending it is probable.

Big, bad Trojans Troy wins share of 3rd straight title BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor For 53 minutes, the Troy Trojans huffed and puffed. Then they finally blew the house down. Austin Deaton scored a pair of second-half goals and the defense didn’t allow much as Troy beat rival Piqua 2-0 at Troy Memorial Stadium to earn a share of the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division title for the third year in a row.

In what sounded at times like a locker room pep talk, Jerry Sandusky rambled in his red prison suit about being the underdog in the fourth quarter, about forgiveness, about dogs and about the movie “Seabiscuit.” With his accusers seated behind him in the courtroom, he denied committing “disgusting acts” against children and instead painted himself as the victim.

Saying farewell Vikings send seniors off on emotional night Staff Reports CASSTOWN — For such a dominant victory, there were plenty of tears at Miami East’s gymnasium Tuesday night. Saying goodbye to a senior class like the Vikings did will do that.


Sandusky gets 3060 years in prison

CINCINNATI (AP) — Hardly able to get a hit, the San Francisco Giants used a misplayed grounder to prolong their NL playoff series. Third baseman Scott Rolen’s two-out error in the 10th inning gave the Giants the go-ahead run Tuesday night in a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, who couldn’t shake 17 years of home postseason futility. The Giants avoided a sweep in Game 3, cutting their division series deficit to 2-1. Rolen, an eight-time Gold Glove winner, couldn’t come up with Joaquin Arias’ short-hop grounder, bobbled it and threw late to first. “I’ve gone through the play many times in my mind between then and now, and I think I

“It feels awesome,” Deaton said. “I mean, coming into the season we didn’t have that much of experience, but I knew we could put it together and compete for the GWOC North.” The Trojans mounted shot attempt after shot attempt in the first half but to no avail. Finally with 26:36 remaining in the second half, Deaton collected a rebound off a Dakota Hampton shot for a goal to put Troy up 1-0. “It was crazy,” Deaton said. “Especially with the score 0-0. It

Volleyball ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 emotional night. It was a packed house, and a lot of people came out to wish these seniors well. When you’ve had so many kids together for so long, those ties are pretty thick. “It was all I could do to hold it together. There were grandmas and grandpas, moms and dads, even kids from other sports — there were not many dry eyes in the house tonight.” Even after the farewell ceremony, though, the Vikings didn’t treat the match like an afterthought. Abby Cash had seven kills, two aces, one block, one dig and 17 assists. Dunivan had six kills and two aces. Millhouse had

three aces and seven digs. Sam Cash had seven kills, eight aces, one block, one dig and 13 assists. Trina Current had five kills, Angie Mack had seven kills and two aces, Allison Morrett had six digs and Anna Kieswetter and one dig. “For them to go through that and then still go out and play the match the way they did, that’s a testament to who these girls are,” Cash said. “They carry themselves with grace and dignity at all times, and they’re the ultimate competitors.” Abby Cash will leave the Vikings as Miami East’s alltime leader in kills, aces and assists, Dunivan will depart as the all-time blocks leader and Millhouse as the all-

time digs leader. And if they can be called anything — other than champions — it’s trendsetters. “These three girls came in here and showed all the classes to follow how to do it. And they didn’t have anyone in front of them showing them,” Cash said. “They’ve just done it all along. Now it’s up to the classes that follow them to back it up.” And the Vikings — who didn’t lose a game at home since their new gym was built last season — still have plenty left to accomplish before their three seniors depart for good. They play at Tri-Village Thursday looking to close out another undefeated championship

run through the Cross County Conference before embarking on their Division III State title defense in Saturday’s sectional tournament opener against Dunbar. Tippecanone 3, Kenton Ridge 1 TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe got revenge on Tuesday night beating Kenton Ridge 21-25, 25-19, 26-24, 25-20 in Central Buckeye Conference play. “We were coming off a big win against Shawnee,” Tippecanoe coach Alexis Dedrick said. “It was nice to get redemption after losing to both Shawnee and Kenton Ridge earlier in the season.” Erin Jans had 11 kills for

the Red Devils. Hannah Losey had 10 kills, four blocks and 25 digs. Lydia Schneider had eight kills, two aces and 25 digs. Halee Printz had seven kills and 15 digs, Alyssa Crusey had seven kills and 12 digs, and Hannah Budding had 38 assists and two aces. “We came in and had confidence that I think we lacked earlier in the year,” Dedrick said. Tippecanoe (10-11, 4-5 CBC) will host Bellefontaine tomorrow to close out regular season play. Preble Shawnee 3, Milton-Union 0 WEST MILTON — Milton-Union was unable to win on senior night as they

fell to Preble Shawnee in straight sets on Tuesday night 25-16, 25-19, 25-16. Preble Shawnee came into the game ranked sixth in the state polls in Division III. “They’re an opportunistic team, and took advantage of our mistakes,” MiltonUnion coach Bill Ginn said. “I have a great group of seniors. Haley Martens, Anna Vagedes, Kate Nealeigh and Michelle Richardson have been incredible assets to our program and really set us on the right track during their careers.” Milton-Union (15-6, 8-3 Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division) will travel to Dixie on Thursday night.

Sentence is in Sandusky gets at least 30 years, denies wrongdoing


Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey throws against the San Francisco Giants in the third inning during Game 3 of the National League division baseball series Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 would play it the same way,” Rolen said. “It hit my glove. I just couldn’t get it to stick.” The Giants managed only three hits against Homer Bailey and Reds relievers, but got two of them in the 10th along with a passed ball by Ryan Hanigan to pull it out. San Francisco won despite striking out 16 times. “We kept scratching and clawing down two games to none,” reliever Jeremy Affeldt said. “That’s the way it is in the playoffs.” Cincinnati finished with four hits, just one after the first inning. Left-hander Barry Zito will pitch Game 4 on Wednesday for the Giants, who have won the last 11 times he started.

The Reds have to decide whether to try ace Johnny Cueto, forced out of the opener in San Francisco on Saturday with spasms in his back and side. Manager Dusty Baker said after the game that they hadn’t decided whether to let Cueto try it, bring back Mat Latos on short rest again, or replace Cueto with Mike Leake, who wasn’t on the division series roster. Replacing Cueto would leave the Reds ace ineligible to pitch in the championship series should the Reds get that far. “It’s very difficult, but it all depends on if your ace can’t go or whatever it is,” Baker said. “That’s part of the conversation us going without him. We realize what’s at stake.”

TROY — Troy Christian clinched the Metro Buckeye Conference championship on Tuesday night with an 8-0 victory over visiting Miami Valley. The win came after being honored as the Upper Valley Medical Center Team of the Month. Taylor Curtis, Lydia Demmitt, Morgan Haddad, Lauren Peters and Amanda Sloan all scored for Troy Christian. Hannah Benjamin,

Curtis, Demmitt, Allyssa Donald, Haddad and Slone all recorded assists for Troy Christian. “Our seniors Morgan Wrench and Amanda Slone did a great job controlling the midfield to help us clinch the Metro Buckeye Conference title,” Troy Christian coach Brian Peters said. Troy Christian (14-1) will travel to Edgewood on Thursday to finish regular season play.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — In what sounded at times like a locker room pep talk, Jerry Sandusky rambled in his red prison suit about being the underdog in the fourth quarter, about forgiveness, about dogs and about the movie “Seabiscuit.” With his accusers seated behind him in the courtroom, he denied committing “disgusting acts” against children and instead painted himself as the victim. And then, after he had said his piece, a judge sentenced him to 30 to 60 years in prison Tuesday, all but ensuring the 68-year-old Sandusky will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the child sexual abuse scandal that brought disgrace to Penn State and triggered the downfall of his former boss, football coach Joe Paterno. He leaves behind a trail of human and legal wreckage that could take years for the university to clear away. “The tragedy of this crime is that it’s a story of betrayal. The most obvious aspect is your betrayal of 10 children,” Judge John Cleland said after a hearing in which three of the men Sandusky was convicted of molesting as boys confronted him face to face and told of the lasting pain he had inflicted. The judge said he expects Sandusky to die in prison. In a disjointed, 15-minute address before he learned his sentence, Sandusky said: “In my heart I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.” Sprinkling his remarks with sports references, the former assistant coach spoke of being locked up in a jail cell, subjected to outbursts from fellow inmates, reading inspirational books and trying to find a purpose in his fate. His voice cracked as he talked about missing his loved ones, including his wife, Dottie, who was in the gallery. “Hopefully we can get better as a result of our hardship and suffering, that somehow, some way, something good will come out of this,” Sandusky said. He also spoke of instances in which he helped children and did good works in the community, adding: “I’ve forgiven, I’ve been forgiven. I’ve comforted others, I’ve been comforted. I’ve been kissed by dogs, I’ve been bit by dogs. I’ve con-

formed, I’ve also been different. I’ve been me. I’ve been loved, I’ve been hated.” Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 counts, found guilty of raping or fondling boys he had met through the acclaimed youth charity he founded, The Second Mile. He plans to appeal, arguing among other things that his defense was not given enough time to prepare for trial after his arrest last November. Among the victims who spoke in court Tuesday was a young man who said he was 11 when Sandusky groped him in a shower in 1998. He said Sandusky is in denial and should “stop coming up with excuses.” “I’ve been left with deep painful wounds that you caused and had been buried in the garden of my heart for many years,” he said. Another man said he was 13 in 2001 when Sandusky lured him into a Penn State sauna and then a shower and forced him to touch the ex-coach. “I am troubled with flashbacks of his naked body, something that will never be erased from my memory,” he said. After the sentencing, prosecutor Joe McGettigan praised the victims’ courage and dismissed Sandusky’s comments as “a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality and without any acceptance of responsibility.” “It was entirely selffocused as if he, again, were

the victim,” McGettigan said. Lawyers for the victims said they were satisfied with the sentence, but with four lawsuits brought against Penn State and several more expected, and Penn State laboring under severe NCAA penalties, cleaning up in the wake of what may be the biggest scandal in college sports history may take years. Ben Andreozzi, an attorney for one the victims, said the university needs to do more: “It’s important they understand before we get into serious discussions about money, that there are other, noneconomic issues. We need apologies. We need changes in policy. This isn’t just about money.” Penn State fired Paterno after Sandusky’s arrest, and the coach died of lung cancer three months later. The scandal also brought down university President Graham Spanier. Two university administrators, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley, are awaiting trial in January on charges they failed to properly report suspicions about Sandusky and lied to the grand jury that investigated him. Over the summer, an investigation commissioned by Penn State and led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh concluded that Paterno and other top officials covered up allegations against Sandusky for more than a decade to avoid bad

publicity. After the report came out, the NCAA fined Penn State a record $60 million, barred the football team from postseason play for four years, cut the number of scholarships it can award, and erased 14 years of victories for Paterno, stripping him of his standing as the winningest coach in the history of big-time college football. In a three-minute recorded statement aired Monday night by Penn State radio, Sandusky described himself as the victim of a “wellorchestrated effort” by his accusers, the media, Penn State, plaintiffs’ attorneys and others — a claim the judge dismissed on Tuesday as an unbelievable conspiracy theory. “I speak today with hope in my heart for a brighter day, not knowing if that day will come,” Sandusky said. “Many moments have been spent looking for a purpose. Maybe it will help others, some vulnerable children who might have been abused, might not be, as a result of the publicity.” After the sentencing, Penn State President Rodney Erickson said in a statement: “Our thoughts today, as they have been for the last year, go out to the victims of Jerry Sandusky’s abuse. While today’s sentence cannot erase what has happened, hopefully it will provide comfort to those affected by these horrible events.”

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 just popped out, and I saw it in the corner. I dived in and just placed it in there.” Troy keeper Matthew Carr, who finished the game with three saves, brushed off a pair of quality looks by Piqua’s leading scorer Cody Lumpkin. The first Lumpkin shot attempt came with 30 minutes left in regulation, then the other with just over 23 minutes left, but Carr was able to make diving stops on both of them to keep Piqua off the board. Troy ended the game with a 19-4 shot advantage. Even with an overwhelming shot advantage, Troy coach Richard Phillips wasn’t thrilled. His teams lack of capitalizing on those chances is something that concerns him going into the postseason. “We have to take advantage of our opportunities,” Phillips said. “Down the road, when you get those chances, and we don’t take advantage of them, we could get hurt. Chances like that we should start converting.” Troy had two shots hit off the post moments after Deaton’s first score. Then at 12:20, Troy’s Kyle Nelson had a goal negated due to an offside call. The Trojans, though, finally got their insurance goal at 3:11. A Caleb Vallieu foul on Deaton set up a direct kick from deep. Deaton hit a low liner that squeaked through the Piqua defense and into the back of the net for a 2-0 lead. The win improves Troy’s record to 6-3-5 overall, 4-0-1 in the GWOC North, while Piqua falls to 7-8-1, 2-3-0 in conference play. Troy finishes GWOC North play tied atop the standings with Butler. Not bad considering the lack of experience the Trojans had entering the

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 girls,” Owen said. “And the girls have wanted that one (to play Centerville again) all year. But it’s going to have to be a lot prettier than tonight. We’re going to have to be better than tonight. “We’re going to have to play pretty darn flawless, they’re going to have to make mistakes and we’re going to have to capitalize on those mistakes.” Tuesday night, there were plenty of mistakes to go around for everyone. After pulling out a first-game victory where neither team led by more than two until the final stretch, the Trojans fell behind 5-1 early. They fought back — and even held the lead as late as 22-20 — but Beavercreek ran off four straight points. Troy tied it at 2424 thanks to a lift call, but a Troy error and a block by Beavercreek evened things up at a game apiece. And in the third game, the Trojans found themselves down big once again at 8-2. “There were times we were frustrated,” Owen said. “Times where we couldn’t put a ball down, times where we weren’t doing the little things we need to do. But we found a way. “We got some help from their side with some net calls — all of which I thought were deserved — and some hitting errors. And we put our serves in when we needed to.” Key to that service game was freshman Lauren Freed. Freed served a big run early in Game 3 to get the Trojans back in contention, then Troy slowly but surely chipped its way ahead until a block closed out the game. And,

When you have that belief, we feel like we can do it. We feel like we can go as far as we want to.” Troy has two more regular season games before tournament starts. The Trojans host Miamisburg Thursday, then travel to take on Fairborn Saturday. Then come tournament time, we will find out just Troy’s Adam Witmer plays how far these Trojans can the ball Tuesday against Piqua. go.



Troy’s Jenna Selby goes up for a kill Tuesday against Beavercreek at the Trojan Activities Center. despite falling behind 7-2 early in the fourth game, a six-point service streak by Freed actually put the Trojans ahead 20-17. “She (Freed) had big runs in both games where she served consistent and aggressive enough to get them out of system,” Owen said. And, after Troy staved off two game points and Beavercreek held off one — Troy’s senior setter Mackenzie Rice put down one of her six kills on match point to close things out. “She did a good job of attacking in the front row,” Owen said of Mackenzie Rice, who had a pair of behind-her-head tip kills that traveled at a next-to impossible angle along the net to find their way down. “And even the third time she did that, they didn’t get a good dig on it and ended up getting caught in the net.

“They weren’t anticipating that from her. Mackenzie was smart and surprised them. And I think we’ll need more of that from her Thursday. Centerville won’t be expecting that kind of thing from her.” Rice finished with 49 assists, 13 digs and two aces. Jenna Selby — who the Beavercreek blockers kept quiet for most of the night — still ended up with 14 kills and four digs to lead all hitters. Emily Moser added 13 kills and 26 digs, Freed finished with 10 kills, three aces and 15 digs, Jen Monnier had nine kills and three digs, Jillian Ross had four kills and eight digs, Cassie Rice had two kills and 41 digs and Abby Brinkman had nine digs. “We found a way against a good team when we weren’t playing where we need to play,” Owen said.
