BattleBots beware — there’s a new team on the battlefield. Having a robot come to life has been a dream come true for Troy High School’s first Xtreme BattleBot team. The first ever Troy H i g h School TROY BattleBot t e a m competed last Thursday in the Fall Xtreme Bots Competition against 90 teams from the Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati areas at the Dayton Airport Expo Center in Vandalia. Senior Will Scarborough said building a “BattleBot” was a dream come true. “I had seen the show when I was a kid, so to be doing this is a dream come true,” Scarborough said. Stillwater Technologies Inc.’s Bill Lukens offered to house the BattleBots club and sponsored the team and provided materials and equipment to build “Highlander.” “It was one way to get kids interested in manufacturing,” said Troy High School Principal Bill Overla. “One student had an interest in manufacturing, designing and engineering, so we partnered up with Stillwater Technologies and it just grew from there.” “I really think the design part was a lot of fun,” Scarborough said. “Coming up with the ideas, no matter how crazy they were, was just really fun.” Team members explained how they designed their bot to be more of a “defensive bot” rather than arm the machine with weaponry to dismantle other projects. “We went with thicker armor than a weapon,” Scarborough said. Scarborough and his teammates also showed how the simple bot had a “skirt” to help prevent other bots from flipping it on its back and essentially be a “turtle on its shell.” Junior Bob West said he helped named the bot “Highlander” because it “sounded Irish and tough.” A big fan of the BattleBots television show as a child, West said he had always wanted to build a robot for a long time, but never had the materials or equipment to do so until this opportunity was presented at the beginning of the school year. “I always love that show and always had wanted to

New Syria fighting UN-backed truce fails to take hold


VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck off the west coast of Canada, but there were no reports of major damage. Residents in parts of British Columbia were evacuated, but the province appeared to escape the biggest quake in Canada since 1949 largely unscathed. The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles and was centered 96 miles (155 kilometers) south of Masset, British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland. See Page 10.

GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) — A horde of the undead milled around the haunted grounds of the Asylum House. Dressed in blood-stained clothes, with rotting flesh falling off their faces, the zombies, ghosts and other monsters relaxed before the night’s big performance. See Page 7.


BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian warplanes and artillery struck rebellious suburbs east of Damascus, while rebels attacked regime positions elsewhere near the capital Sunday, violence that marred the third day of what was meant to be a four-day holiday truce, activists said. A U.N-backed truce declared for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha has failed to take hold, with fighting reported from the start. Activists said more than 150 people were killed Friday, the start of the holiday, and more than 120 people on the second day, similar to previous daily casualty tolls. The cease-fire was seen as a long shot from the outset. The international mediator in Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, failed to get firm commitments from all combatants. At least one rebellinked radical Islamic group, the al-Qaidainspired Jabhat al-Nusra, rejected the truce outright.

The failure of the truce to take hold “highlighted the impotence of the international community’s approach� to the Syria conflict, said Salman Shaikh, director of the Brookings Doha Center, a think tank. In April, Brahimi’s predecessor as Syria mediator, former U.N. chief Kofi Annan, tried to launch a more comprehensive plan an open-ended cease-fire, to be enforced by hundreds of U.N. monitors and followed by talks on a political transition.

In fighting Sunday, Syrian warplanes struck the eastern Damascus suburbs of Arbeen, Harasta and Zamalka to try to drive out rebels, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which compiles information from activists in Syria. The Observatory also reported shelling attacks in these areas. Local activists and another opposition group, the Local Coordination Committees, said warplanes struck Arbeen and Harasta. The LCC said eight people were killed Sunday in Damascus and its suburbs. Three amateur videos posted online showed warplanes flying over the eastern suburbs.

Forecasters said the combination could bring close to a foot of rain, a potentially lethal storm surge and punishing winds that could cause widespread power outages that last for days. The storm could also dump up to 2 feet of snow in Kentucky,

North Carolina and West Virginia. Louis Uccellini, environmental prediction chief for the National Oceanic and A t m o s p h e r i c Administration, told The Associated Press that given Sandy’s east-to-west track into New Jersey, the worst of the storm surge could be just to the north, in New York City, on Long Island and in northern New Jersey. Forecasters said that because of giant waves and high tides made worse by a full moon, the metropolitan area of about 20 million people could get hit with an 11-foot wall of water. “This is the worst-case scenario,� Uccellini said. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned: “If you don’t evacuate, you are not only endangering your life, you are also endangering the lives of the first responders who are going in to rescue you.

All About Bats

Word of the Week hibernate — to spend the winter in close quarters in a dormant condition

Newspaper Knowledge Find 10 plural words in the newspaper and cut them out. Paste them on a sheet of paper and write the root word next to each.

Did You Know? Insect-eating bats may either capture flying insects in their mouths or scoop them into their tail or wing membranes. They then reach down and take the insect into their mouth. This results in the erratic flight most people are familiar with when they observe bats flying around in the late evening or around lights at night. Bats drink by skimming close to the surface of a body of water and gulping an occasional mouthful. What do bats eat? Many eat insects. Some bat species in other countries eat fruit or nectar and even fish. Vampire bats, a small group that lives in Central and South America, feed on animal blood. What do Connecticut bats eat? Insects. What do all young bats eat? Like all mammals, young bats feed on mother’s milk.

Bat & Moth Game Ever play “Marco-Polo” in the swimming pool? This game is very similar but is played on land. One person is the bat and another is the moth. Both must stand in a circle made by the other players. The bat is blindfolded. The moth must say “moth” every time the bat says “bat.” The object of the game is for the bat to rely only on sound and tag the moth.

NIE Coordinator: Dana Wolfe / Graphic Designer: Scarlett E. Smith

Bats may be the most misunderstood animals in the United States. Almost all U.S. bats, and 70 percent of the bat species worldwide, feed almost exclusively on insects and are thus extremely beneficial. One bat can eat between 600 and 1,000 mosquitoes and other insect pests in just one hour. Bats in other parts of the world feed on a variety of items in addition to insects. Many species feed primarily on fruit, while several types feed on nectar and pollen. Fruit bats perform an extremely important function as seed dispersers. Nectar-eating bats are important pollinators. Many plant species depend almost entirely on bats for pollination. Of the 45 species of bats found in the continental United States, six are listed as endangered. These species are the gray bat, Indiana bat, Ozark bigeared bat, Virginia big-eared bat, lesser long-nosed bat, and greater Mexican long-nosed bat. MYTHS AND MISCONCEPTIONS "All Bats Have Rabies." Less than ½ of 1% of bats carry the rabies virus. In addition, rabid bats are seldom aggressive. Fewer than 40 people in the United States are known to have contracted rabies from bats during the past 40 years.

"Bats get tangled in people's hair." Although bats may occasionally fly very close to someone's face while catching insects, they do not get stuck in people's hair. That's because the bat's ability to echolocate is so acute that it can avoid obstacles no wider than a piece of thread. "Bats suck your blood." By far the most famous bats are the vampire bats. These amazing creatures are found in Mexico, Central America and South America. Vampire bats feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals such as birds, horses and cattle. They do not suck blood. The bats obtain blood by making a small cut in the skin of a sleeping animal with their razor-sharp teeth and

then lapping up the blood as it flows from the wound. The bat's saliva contains an anesthetic that reduces the likelihood of the animal feeling the prick. Each bat requires only about two tablespoons of blood every day, so the loss of blood to a prey animal is small and rarely causes any harm. "Bats are blind." Although they can't see color, bats can see better than we do at night. And, many bats can also "see" in the dark by using echolocation. BAT BIOLOGY Bats, like humans, are mammals, having hair and giving birth to living young and feeding them on milk from mammary glands. More than 900 species of bats occur worldwide; they are most abundant in the tropics.

Liquor option would fuel café’s expansion Brick House hopes to offer beer, wine with dinner menu BY JOHN BADEN For the Troy Daily News The “local liquor option” Brick House Cafe is seeking this November is one more step in a massive business expansion planned by the café and catering restaurant at 2 S. Miami St. In 2006, Jolene Sell, who grew up in town, was running the Willow Tree, a bed-and-breakfast and banquet facility off of West State Route 571. Since she was doing catering, she needed a kitchen. She had no idea that her need would be met by an abandoned coffee shop in town. While Sell didn’t want to use a café kitchen, she seized the opportunity until another place was made available. Now, six years later, the Willow Tree has been sold, and Sell is still on Miami Street in what is known as the Brick House Café. Boasting specialty salads and hot and cold sandwiches, food is not the only thing that draws in customers for the breakfast and lunch dining hours from Tuesday to Saturday. “The atmosphere I think is what keeps them coming back,” Sell said. “We’re always in a good mood.” This mood is set by a team of 10 workers who love doing what they do, whether it’s serving the customers, cooking the food or washing the dishes. “We just have a good time here,” Sell said. “All of

us like coming to work.” With faithful customers and a strong working attitude, the Brick House has reached the point of outgrowing its current location. At the beginning of this month, Sell had to turn away two parties because the café’s party area can only seat up to 14 people. In order to better serve West Milton, Sell believes that expanding the restaurant is the next step. This development will include a two-story add-on to the building the café is already in. With the building next door abandoned after being a sports photo center and previously Area Wide Title Agency, which moved across the street, Sell plans to spread the dining atmosphere next door. “It will be a new building, and we will have more seating in the new section,” Sell said. The new building will allow the Brick House to hold more than 100 customers. There will be seating upstairs for larger groups, and there also will be seating downstairs and outdoors for customers to enjoy the food and fellowship the restaurant offers. This plan also will bring new opportunities for the Brick House. As of now, the café closes at 2 p.m. After the expansion, it will be opened for dinner hours as well and after closing time on the weekends if an event is going on in town. Sell recalled how when she was growing up, a for-

WEST MILTON mer restaurant and bar, the Village Inn, was often a venue for people to hang out after sports games. She would like to do the same with the Brick House. “I just think it would be nice to have a place in town where everyone can go and socialize a bit afterward,” Sell said. As a part of the meal at dinner time, Sell plans to offer beer or wine to her customers. As a result, she has applied for a liquor license, to be voted on Nov. 8. “We don’t want people to think it’s a bar,” Sell said. “We just want them to realize that since we’re going to be opened at night, we would like to be able to offer alcoholic beverages as well.” Sell said that the existing building of the café will include a small tavern for the evening hours. The idea has been met by some opposition in the community by those who believe it is going to just turn into a bar. Sell said that she respects their opinion and still welcomes them to dine at her restaurant. “I just want something nice for the community, and that’s what it boils down to,” Sell said. “If I’m going to be here and I’m going to be open at night, I would like to have a liquor license.” Sell said that she has never taken on a project as big as this one, but she said that she is all for trying, no matter what happens. “And if I’m going to try, I’d like to do it in West Milton,” Sell said.

Question: Do you plan on dressing up for Halloween this year?

— First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Washington Post on Pell Grant funding: In the Oct. 16 presidential debate, both candidates pledged to shower money on struggling college students. Mitt Romney praised a tuition-free college fund in Massachusetts and promised to “keep our Pell Grant program growing,” a theme he also struck this month when he pledged not to cut “funding” and “grants” for college students. President Barack Obama responded he has already enlarged Pell, the $36 billion keystone of the federal student aid system, by billions over his first term. One reason to raise tax revenue, the president said, is to keep investing in education and other priorities. Neither candidate mentioned that Pell grants already face a looming funding crisis … Obama doubled Pell funding in part by reforming the federal student loan system and applying the savings to Pell. But Congress didn’t commit enough revenue to keep Pell grants at their more generous terms permanently. Last year Obama and Congress scrambled for last-minute cash to maintain the pumped-up program. Another scramble is in the offing once that is exhausted. Romney’s positioning is even more suspect. The Republican had previously argued that federal education spending fuels the rise in tuition, making his latest statement appear to be just another general-election flip to the middle. Even were that not the case, any spending pledge from a candidate whose most consistent and specific priority is to cut taxes should be automatically suspect. … In May Romney proposed to “refocus” grant dollars, which probably means adjusting the program’s eligibility requirements, cutting some students out. That could save some cash, but he gave no details. … Fine promises on Pell grants without the substance to back them up neither serve Pell-dependent students nor advance smart budgeting, in which priorities compete fairly and trade-offs aren’t hidden. Quad-City Times, Davenport, Iowa, on politics at the dinner table: Watch the presidential debates and get a heavy dose about what’s wrong with politic discourse in America. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama tried to out-shout each other, ignoring moderators’ directives and plunging onward with accusatory tones, gross distortions, dismissive eye-rolls and a few snotty asides. Terrific theater. Lousy discourse. And, according to education researchers and psychologists, an awful lesson for impressionable ears. Fortunately, those same researchers say a young person’s civic involvement is most heavily influenced by parental behavior, not politicians or media sources. … Interestingly, that kind of parental involvement showed results regardless of the family’s ethnicity, income, education or employment. While pundits often ascribe political differences based on those factors, this in-depth research affirms the opposite. Constructive political conversation in the home elevates civic involvement no matter who you are or where you’re from. Encouraging open exchange of political thoughts leads to better critical thinking. “Family communication patterns that involve parents encouraging children to express political opinions are usually better oriented toward public affairs.” When parents lecture and emphasize deference to only their opinions, researchers find kids less critical of political claims and more likely to passively accept others’ opinions. Households where kids hear multiple viewpoints and are asked their opinion, produce curious kids who form their own opinions, and most importantly, act on them.

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


Vote yes on East levy “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

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

To the Editor: On Nov. 6, the Miami East School District will have a 3.5 mill renewal on the ballot. This levy has been renewed by residents of Miami East since 1988. The levy is for a five-year period and raises over $380,000 to cover operating expenses. These are general operating expenses of the district such as salaries (which are frozen for four years), fringe benefits, utilities, textbooks, instructional supplies, maintenance and repair costs, etc. The district continues to reduce costs, but just as all your costs for fuel, food, etc. have risen, so has the cost of food, fuel and general operating expenses risen for the school. The school has continued to reduce costs with reductions in staff and other activities. Schools are not like the President of the United States, who can sign an executive order and just increase debt limits. Schools have to operate in the black. Our schools are desperately trying not to raise taxes. To do our part we need to pass this levy. In response to a recent letter to the editor, I will say this — if you think the taxes in this district are high, maybe you need to research some of the surrounding districtsto see what those residents are paying. I think you will find we are getting a real “Bang for Our Buck.” After all, how many districts can say we have received the HIGHEST rating possible (EXCELLENT WITH DISTINCTION) for five years in a row? I can

tell you only 13 districts. What an achievement for our students, staff and community. We should be very proud of this accomplishment. Vote “Yes” on Nov. 6 for the Miami East Levy Renewal.

represent all of us in Columbus. He is a leader who is decisive and responsible. Let's keep Richard Adams our State Representative for another term.

— Emma Pearson Fletcher

Vote Adams for state rep To the Editor: Representation at the state level is more important than ever. I am voting to reelect Richard Adams as our State Representative for the 80th District. Richard Adams has given a lifetime of service to the people of Miami County and our legislative district. He was superintendent of the Upper Valley JVS; leading the school to become one of the top vocational schools in Ohio. He served as Miami County Commissioner for two terms using his leadership and expertise to keep the county fiscally sound and under good management. Adams has been past present of the Miami County Foundation, the Edison Community College Board of Trustees and the Tri-County Board of Mental Health. He is also a member of the Miami County Farm Bureau and the Ohio Manufacturers' Association. Richard Adams applies all of that experience in his role as our state legislator, carefully watching taxpayer dollars, while working to help small business and solve the issues that Ohio faces in a tough economy. I have worked with Rep. Adams and I know that he is a man of character and works each and every day to

— Michael Gutmann Piqua

Vote Welbaum for judge To the Editor: I write in strong support for Jeff Welbaum, who is running for judge in the 2nd District Court of Appeals. Welbaum has years of experience prosecuting and adjudicating cases. He served as Miami County Prosecutor and was on the bench of the Court of Common Pleas for many years. He has the right breadth and depth of experience that we need on the Court. He doesn’t mess around. He won’t legislate from the bench. And, he will work harder than anyone to ensure that justice is served and that our families are protected. Jeff is a family man. He and his wife have been married for more than 30 years. They care about our Miami Valley community and the people in it. I am proud to have voted early for Jeff Welbaum for judge. He is the best candidate for the job, as evidenced by the multiple endorsements he has received from law enforcement and other community groups. Please join me in supporting Jeff Welbaum for judge.

I’m just Bob, Bob, Bobbin’ along with Bob Cooler weather might mean raking leaves and college football to some folks, but to me it means it’s time to stop riding my bike outside. (Cooler weather does remind Steve of raking leaves and college football, but almost everything reminds Steve of college football so we can’t hold him up as a primary reference person. Raking leaves is what happens at halftime.) Bike riding has become one of my main sources of exercise, so unless I find an alternative activity I will not be fitting into clothes next spring I am currently wearing. Enter spinning. Spinning is stationary bicycling that very closely resembles road riding, all except for the part where drivers concentrating on their cell phones run over you. On the plus side, the classes feature a variety of music and impossibly fit instructors. On the down-side, the classes feature a variety of music and impossibly fit instructors. And gallons of perspiration. The Miami county YMCA has great spinning programs. The Piqua Y recently was the beneficiary of a bequest from the late Russ Thompson’s estate. Our rather dingy room was repainted,

Marla Boone Troy Daily News Columnist mirrors were installed (more on that later), and brand new fancy bikes were purchased to enhance the spinning experience. Let me tell you, spinning needs all the enhancing it can get because no matter how you cut it, you’re still in a very hot room with a bunch of very sweaty people. In the pre-fancy bike era, a person had to estimate the quality of his or her workout. Now, though, a little computer on the bike will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about your effectiveness on the pedals. At a glance, we in the class can see our pedal revolutions per minute (never enough), how many watts we’re producing (never enough), how many calories we’re burning (never nearly enough), and time elapsed (this appears to

be perpetually stuck somewhere far short of the 45 minutes of class time). The computer will magically interface with your heart rate monitor so that you don’t have to remember to bring the digital readout thingy. The only function it won’t perform is to pedal the bike for you. The success of any class is largely dependent upon the quality of the teacher and we have a humdinger. Bob not only knows his way around a 27 speed bike, he also is a music aficionado. This is more important than you might think. Here is the scenario: You have managed to drag yourself to the Y for your workout. You are not entirely happy about this, but you have made the effort. You would much rather be at home sitting on the couch eating nachos, but you are realistic enough to figure out that is what got you in this shape to begin with. You have visited the locker room and are now squeezed into a pair of Spandex bicycle shorts. Even Lance Armstrong does not look good in bike shorts, so what possible hope is there for you? But you get on the bike and Bob starts to work his magic. Bob’s particular magic is music. To say

he loves music is the grossest of understatements. This is a man who has a room in his house devoted to record albums. (Record albums, children, are round vinyl objects that are placed on a turntable. While the turntable revolves, a needle glides along the grooves in the album and music comes out of the speaker. I would explain what a turntable and speaker are but we’re working with a space limitation here. (Please Google it.) He has thousands of albums and appears to know the artist of every song ever recorded. To take our minds off the agony in our legs and to distract our vision from our bike-shorted selves in those truth-telling mirrors, Bob plays “Stump the Class” while we pedal away. He will quiz us on performers and on songs. He will quiz us on dates of release and differing versions of songs. He will keep us occupied until, mercifully, the little timer on the bike computer reads 45:00. It’s time to go home. With a song in our hearts.

Planning pays off for Halloween businesses GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) — A horde of the undead milled around the haunted grounds of the Asylum House. Dressed in blood-stained clothes, with rotting flesh falling off their faces, the zombies, ghosts and other monsters relaxed before the night’s big performance. In a few hours, the horde would hide in the dark recesses of the haunted house, chase after unsuspecting victims and generally wreak terror. But until then, they chatted, joked and laughed with each other, oblivious to their horrifying appearances. “Halloween is that one time of the year when you can be whoever you want to be, and no one will say that you’re weird or stupid. You can express yourself,” Patrick Greathouse, owner of Asylum House, told the Daily Journal. “Our actors embrace that.” This Halloween season, thousands of people will flock to haunted houses in search of a good scare. They’ll huddle in groups as they tentatively make their way through the darkened hallways, jumping at any movement and screaming as ghouls rush at them. But behind the creepy music, bloody monster makeup and macabre settings are armies of performers, set builders and lighting specialists who keep the scares coming all October long. Hours of work goes into making sure that visitors have the scariest night possible. “We’re constantly tweaking and fixing things. If we see something wrong, we’ll upgrade it even more. We don’t just put it up and let it be,” Greathouse said. Loud gunshots come from around the back of the main Asylum House complex in the Center Grove area. Greathouse stands on a 1950-era U.S. Army Jeep with a mounted machine gun in the back. The prop is part of the haunt’s alien invasion section, and work had to be done making the battle between soldiers and extraterrestrials more believable. In the down time before the haunted house opens for the weekend, Greathouse and his team spend hours recalibrating and adjusting different areas of the haunted complex. Empty spray cans of black paint are scattered around the field, along with spare lighting fixtures, spools of wire and scrap wood. Workers used a circular saw to cut pieces for new sections of walkway and touched up gray and black paint on new areas of the house. Greathouse has been working in haunts around Indianapolis for nearly 20 years. He’s developed a keen eye for the flow and details that make a successful event. After opening on Oct. 5, organiz-

Today: 5 p.m.: Miami Valley Events Calendar 6 p.m.: Legislative Update 8 p.m.: Have History Will Travel

Dear Annie: I've been married for 47 years to a man who is 13 years older than I am. He reminds me often that he is 86 and set in his ways. For much of our marriage, I have carried the load around the house, but now it is worse. My husband barely does anything. At least he has a hobby that keeps him busy. Otherwise, he would sit in our den recliner watching TV all day. I mostly confine myself to our bedroom because if I set foot in the den, it becomes a shouting match since he cannot hear me because the TV is so loud. And he gets angry if I ask him to turn it down. He got a new TV for Father's Day, and I am barely allowed to watch it. He doesn't even have the courtesy to listen or speak to me if he is reading the newspaper. I know where I am on the totem pole. I get no respect from him. I guess things are not going to get better. I went as far as packing my bags and renting a car. You would think that would have made a difference, but no such luck. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems, especially my children. I have cried many nights. It helps simply to unburden myself to you, but I know it won't last. What do I do? — An Unhappy Prisoner Dear Unhappy: Your husband has decided to settle into a sedentary old age, and you aren't ready for that. But marriage vows include "in sickness and in health," and this is part of the deal. Unless you are looking to divorce him, we recommend you immerse yourself in your own hobbies and interests. If the TV is too loud, see whether you can find amplifying headphones that he is willing to use. Don't try to converse with him when he's watching. Get out of the house instead. You're not a "prisoner." Meet friends for dinner. Work out at the health club. Ask a girlfriend to go to the movies. Take the grandchildren on a field trip. Join a choir or community theater. Find ways to keep yourself occupied so you are fulfilled and content, and so that your problems with Hubby recede into the background of your life. Dear Annie: I am having a party for my child's first birthday. We are already overrun with toys in our home. Right now, he prefers to play with mixing bowls and boxes rather than store-bought toys. Is it proper to indicate on the invitation "no toys, please"? We'd much rather get clothing or money to put into a college fund. — Grateful Mama of Little One Dear Mama: It is never appropriate to tell your guests what they should get you. Unless you want to ask people to bring a toy to donate to charity (a lovely idea), you should not specify anything on the invitations. If people should ask, it is OK to tell them your preferences, and you also can make suggestions to one or two people and ask them to spread the word. Otherwise, return the gifts or give them to a charity so underprivileged children can get something for the holidays. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Enough Is Enough," whose boyfriend's family can't forgive her for an indiscretion with her exboyfriend. Some people are unable to place their spouses first when they marry. I never cheated on my husband, but anytime it came to my needs, e.g., "I don't want your mother smoking in our house," he'd ignore me and hand his mom an ashtray. Even though his sister was stealing my jewelry, he gave her a set of keys to our house because "they're family." He never quite understood that his primary allegiance should have been to his wife. I divorced him, and he's now back living with the woman he really loves: Mommy. — Sacramento, Calif.

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


Open zipper? Why are resealable bags always closed? Dear Heloise: Why are zippered plastic bags closed before you use them? More often than not, your hands are full of something that needs to go into the bag, and it’s tricky to have to open the bag first! I say package them open in the box! — Linda in San Antonio Linda, I have received other letters with this same complaint. I contacted a couple of major manufacturers, and they did not have a particular reason why they come closed. It is just how they are manufactured. I agree that it can be a nuisance to have to open the bag when your hands are full, but I like that they come closed.

Hints from Heloise Columnist I think it ensures that nothing else has been in that bag before I put my snacks or leftover food in it! Think of the hassle involved with having to wash the bag before you could put anything in it! Opening the bag is a small hassle for peace of mind. — Heloise

USE WHAT YOU HAVE Dear Heloise: As I try to take better care of our environment, I remember that my mother had no plastic bags, aluminum foil, paper towels or plastic wrap. She shopped with a canvas bag or wicker basket, covered bowls of food with saucers and small plates, wiped up spills with old towels and even lined trash cans with newspaper. I can do all those things and save money at the same time! — Bea in Oregon FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses for spice jars: • As a single-bud vase. • Fill with fish food and use to sprinkle it in a tank.

• Store a cinnamon-and-sugar mixture for toast. • Use as salt and pepper shakers for picnics. — Heloise OFF-WHITE Dear Heloise: I have some very white cotton fabric. I would like to make it look off-white. How would you suggest I do this? — Kathleen, via email Try soaking the fabric in tea. Take a large plastic bucket and many tea bags. After “making” the tea, put the fabric in to soak. How “strong” the tea is will determine how dark the fabric comes out. If that doesn’t work, see if manufacturers make a dye specifically for this. — Heloise












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although this is a poor day for making firm decisions, it’s an excellent day to think about how to reduce your debt and improve your position in anything that is jointly held (like mortgages, insurance matters and shared property). TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Sit down with others today (especially partners and friends), and discuss how you can improve the relationship. This is an excellent day for this. Make your final decisions tomorrow. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re eager to introduce improvements to your job, and for that matter, to your health as well. Think about what is possible, and line up your options. Make your choices tomorrow. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a wonderfully creative day! You might see new approaches to things or new uses for something you already own. You’re very resourceful! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Look around where you live, and think about fixing up garbage areas and anything to do with plumbing, bathrooms, laundry areas or garbage and recycling areas. Look for solutions to problems. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’re extremely convincing today! Unfortunately, this is a poor day for important decisions or commitments. Nevertheless, you can begin to pave the way. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Give some serious thought to new ways to earn money or get a different job, because it might be possible now. You want greater control in your life via your assets. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Take a realistic look in the mirror, and ask yourself what you can do to improve your appearance. You also might consider how you can improve your style of relating to others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a great day for research and for digging deep for solutions and answers. You’ll be like a dog with a bone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Group discussions will be powerfully intense today. You might be attracted to a powerful leader, or vice versa; you could be the leader. Nevertheless, postpone important decisions until tomorrow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your relationship to someone in authority might undergo a shift today. You might gain power or lose power. Don’t make any commitments or promises today. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Look for ways to enrich your life through further education or training. Perhaps travel is a way to expand your horizons. YOU BORN TODAY You are naturally organized and excellent at supervising others. Furthermore, you know how to motivate people. You work well with others! You often travel great distances for your career. You know how to fine-tune things to keep them working. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck off the west coast of Canada, but there were no reports of major damage. Residents in parts of British Columbia were evacuated, but the province appeared to escape the biggest quake in Canada

since 1949 largely unscathed. The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles and was centered 96 miles (155 kilometers) south of Masset,

British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like the damage and the risk are at a very low level,â&#x20AC;? said Shirley Bond, British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minister responsible for emergency management said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re certainly grateful.â&#x20AC;? The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center lifted its tsunami advisory for Hawaii Sunday morning just before 4 a.m. local time, three hours after downgrading from a warning and less than six hours after the waves first hit the islands. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service canceled tsunami advisories for Canada, Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California. Tsunami Warning Center officials said wave heights were diminishing in Hawaii, though swimmers and boaters should be careful of strong or unusual currents.

The biggest waves about 5 feet high appeared to hit Maui. There were no immediate reports of damage, though one person died in a fatal crash near a road that was closed because of the threat near Oahuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north shore. Gov. Neil Hawaii Abercrombie said the state was lucky to avoid more severe surges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very, very grateful that we can go home tonight counting our blessings,â&#x20AC;? Abercrombie said. Dennis Sinnott of the Canadian Institute of Ocean Science said a 69-centimeter wave was recorded off Langara Island on the northeast tip of Haida Gwaii, formerly called the Queen Charlotte Islands. The islands are home to about 5,000 people, many of them members of the Haida aboriginal group. Another 55 centimeter wave hit Winter Harbour on the northeast coast of Vancouver Island.

Yes, that same team that looked lost defensively after giving up 49 points to Indiana two weeks ago, and nearly lost at home last week to Purdue. After stalling Penn State’s up-tempo “NASCAR” offense in a 35-23 win Saturday night, the Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) stayed unbeaten to proclaim themselves the class of the conference.

Johnson races to victory

already knew they were in, but everyone is just excited.” And why wouldn’t they be? The Railroaders’ season has been historic on all accounts. Senior James Canan, who converted to running back after starting at quarterback as a freshman, has electrified crowds and bulldozed opponents on his way to a record-breaking season. Canan broke the Bradford single game rushing record with 455 yards in an earlier season win against National Trail. Entering Friday, Canan is within 40 yards of breaking Jonathon Barbee’s career rushing record. In a win over Mississinawa Valley, quarterback Brandon Wysong — who has started every game since his freshman year — set a new school record for passing yards in a game with 282. Bradford’s signature wins

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson’s expectations are high at Martinsville Speedway, and his results keep showing why. The five-time series champion raced to his seventh career victory on NASCAR’s trickiest oval Sunday, and the triumph helped him erase a seven-point deficit and supplant Brad Keselowski as the points leader with three events remaining. But before handing Johnson the title, he cautioned, there’s plenty of racing yet to do. “I’m ecstatic about the win today and ecstatic about the points lead, but this is no cakewalk,” Johnson said after the 59th victory of his career and fourth this season. “These guys are bringing their best each and every week. … The next two races will tell the tale. Anything can happen. We could both wad it up next week and Clint Bowyer is your champion.” Johnson moved two points ahead of Keselowski, who finished sixth for his highest career showing at the track. The series next moves to Texas and Phoenix before finishing up at Homestead-Miami. “I know this championship’s going to come down to Homestead,” Keselowski said. “You’ve just got to be in position to where you’ve got a shot at it and we’re doing the things it’s going to take.” Both drivers needed only to look at Denny Hamlin’s day to be reminded that things can go south fast. Hamlin seemed poised to get in the thick of it, and then had an electrical problem that sent him to a 33rd place finish and out of contention. “When these things happen, you’ve just got to suck it up and move on,” Hamlin said. “There’s nothing I can do about it. One of these days it’s going to be our time. It’s just not right now.” Keselowski’s day was nowhere near as adventurous as Hamlin’s, but effective all the same.

Five area teams playoff bound Bradford earns 1st berth since 1982 BY COLIN FOSTER Sports Writer It’s official. Five area high school football teams are moving on after the Ohio High School Athletic Association announced the playoff pairings at 3 p.m. Sunday, ending the drama and anticipation for coaches, players and fans. Tippecanoe, Milton-Union, Covington, Miami East and Bradford all have earned the right to play in the postseason. It will be basically a Midwest Athletic Conference-Cross County Conference challenge for two area teams, a trend that has been a recurring theme over the last several years.

In Division V Region 20, the No. 8 Miami East Vikings will travel to play reigning state champion and No. 1 seed Coldwater — who went undefeated on its way to a MAC title. This will be Bradford’s first playoff appearance since 1982. “The community is overwhelmed with excitement,” Bradford Athletic Director Dusty Yingst said. “There is a lot of excitement surrounding the players and coaches for what they have accomplished this year. Even after our game against Twin Valley South on Friday, the fans stood outside in the rain and cold, greeting the coaches and players. The kids

Browns top Chargers Richardson leads charge in 7-6 victory CLEVELAND (AP) — Trent Richardson broke one tackle, then another and was gone. The San Diego Chargers couldn’t stop the rookie running back who might be the one to make Cleveland relevant once more. On a day when every yard counted, Richardson delivered a dominating performance that even made Hall of Famer Jim Brown swell with pride. “Great running backs break tackles,” Brown said following Cleveland’s 7-6 win Sunday. “You do that, you are in control. You keep the ball. The other team is disheartened. That’s football.” And that’s why the Browns chose Richardson. Cleveland’s rookie running back, still playing with a rib injury, rushed for 122 yards in nasty weather and scored the game’s only touchdown on a 26yard run to lead Browns (2-6) to their second straight win at home. Following the game, Brown, who called Richardson an “ordinary” back on the day Cleveland selected the Alabama star No. 3 overall in April’s draft, was waiting at the young star’s locker. Richardson has made even Brown a believer.

“That’s my partner,” Brown said. “I’m so happy he didn’t take anything I said the wrong way. He’s a player. He’s making sacrifices for his team. He’s hurting now more than you think and he’s out there making plays.” Richardson, pulled last week at Indianapolis when he was ineffective because of a rib cartilage injury, carried 24 times as the Browns gave new owner Jimmy Haslam his first win since taking over the franchise. Haslam was presented with a game ball by coach Pat Shurmur in Cleveland’s jubilant locker room. “It feels good,” linebacker D’Qwell Jackson said of rewarding Haslam, who shelled out $1.05 billion for the Browns. “You always want to put a smile on his face.” Richardson’s TD to cap Cleveland’s first drive was like many they used to get from the incomparable Brown, who either outran or carried defenders to the end zone.

■ High School Football

Playoffs ■ CONTINUED FROM 11 came against National Trail, Bethel and TriCounty North. Now the Railroaders have the daunting task of taking on a Marion Local team that stood its ground with the best of the best in the MAC. The Flyers come into contest boasting a record of 82, with their only losses coming against Coldwater and Versailles. Marion Local enters the game winners of its last two. “The kids are ready to go,” Yingst said.

As is the rest of the community. The playoff pandemonium has begun in Bradford. “We’ve been selling Tshirts and hoodies,” Yingst said. “We’ve sold two times the amount I thought we would need in about two days. It’s been crazy.” Miami East’s journey to the playoffs, however, was quite different than Bradford’s. After two consecutive losses to Covington and TriCounty North, coach Max Current had one simple

message for his players: keep playing. From that point on, East went undefeated, knocking off Bradford and National Trail to jump right back into the playoff picture. When all was said and done, everything fell into place for the Vikings, scoring them a date with the Cavaliers on Saturday. The Covington Buccs (10-0) haven’t been tested much this season on their way to another CCC title. But a date with No. 6 Dixie — who (7-3) beat Milton-

Union just a few weeks back — might present a challenge for No. 3 seeded Covington in the opening round of the Division V Region 20 playoffs. The Greyhounds, however, are coming off a 31-7 loss to Carlisle, which would have clinched them a share of the Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division championship. The Dixie defense has been leaky in games against quality opponents, while the Covington offense has proven to be explosive

all year. The Greyhounds offense, though, possesses the ability to put up points, but on the flip side, the Buccs defense has been stout and nasty all year. Something will have to break when the two teams meet on Saturday night in Covington. Milton-Union (8-2) earned a No. 7 seed and a matchup with No. 2 Williamsport Westfall (9-1) in the first round of the Division IV playoffs on Friday. The Bulldogs enter the game with a full head of

NASCAR ■ CONTINUED FROM 11 started 32nd, He methodically worked his way forward, and was never really a factor until he took a late gamble to grab the lead and a crucial bonus point. He was leading the race briefly when a caution flag flew and he and Dale Earnhardt Jr. opted to stay out, then watched as the other 16 lead-lap cars all headed for pit road for fresh tires. “I think we’ve learned a lesson here in the past not pitting late, and that certainly came into play,” Johnson said. “I felt like it was going to be a problem for him. We’ve been there before and stayed out and got beat.” When the race went back to green with 19 laps to go, Keselowski was a sitting duck whose best bet was to hang on for as long as he could and then avoid any Martinsville mayhem that cropped up in a furious dash to the finish. He said the decision to stay out was his own, and he was shocked no one else followed. “It’s at the end of the race and half the field had just pitted 20 or 30 laps ago,” Keselowski said. “If I was running 15th, I would have stayed out. I would have put ‘em in my shoes

steam, beating SWBL Buckeye Division rival Waynesville in Week 9 and then crushing Northridge 48-0 on Friday. After falling to Springfield Shawnee on Friday night, Tippecanoe slipped to No. 8 in the Division II Region 8 rankings. That gave the Red Devils a first-round game against No. 1 seeded Cincinnati Turpin, which defeated Tipp 24-21 in the playoffs last season. The teams will square off at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

and said by golly, I would have stayed out. None of those guys did and I don’t know why. Well Dale (Earnhardt) Jr. did. He had some sense. It just wasn’t meant to be.” Johnson, who led eight times for 193 laps, passed him on lap 487 on his way to making the race a bonus points bonanza. He got one for leading a lap, one for leading the most laps and three for the victory, wiping out a seven-point deficit. Busch was second, followed by Kasey Kahne, Aric Almirola, Bowyer, Keselowski, Jeff Gordon and Brian Vickers. On the final restart, Busch said he was trying to avoid spinning Johnson heading into turn one, but nudged him. Johnson slowed, and Busch too, and “when I went back to the gas, I spun my tires and got loose, and he squirted away from me.” Bowyer also had a great car, leading 154 laps, and Gordon led 92. While the championship race tightened at the top, it also eliminated Hamlin, who seemed poised to get in the thick of it, and then had an electrical problem that sent him to a 33rdplace finish and out of title contention.

Big Ten’s top passer. McGloin did end up with a career-best 327 yards and two touchdowns on 27 of 45 passing, but 126 yards came in the fourth quarter on 14 of 21 passing with the Nittany Lions trying to close double-digit deficits. The Penn State tight ends, such a big part of the new-look offense, were limited until the fourth quarter. Tight end Garry Gilliam said he thought the Nittany Lions blocked the Buckeyes edge rushers as well as they could. “But I think what we should’ve done more in the first half was establish our game a little more and open up our passing,” Gilliam said. “But we learn from what happened and just progress to Purdue” next week. The biggest question mark for the Buckeyes defense, the injury-ravaged linebacking unit, turned out to be a position of strength. It’s the same position that Meyer earlier this week said had been “smacked” by injuries, including Etienne Sabino’s broken leg.

greatest escape yet after getting a tying touchdown and 2-point conversion with 3 seconds left against the Boilermakers before winning in overtime. No such heroics needed against the Nittany Lions (5-3, 3-1), on the road no less in front of a hostile sellout crowd of 107,818. “The one thing about coming on the road, you find out about your team because it’s a gladiator-type mentality that it’s us against the world,” Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said. “Our guys seem to thrive on that.” What makes the win even more impressive is the defense contained a Penn State offense that had been gaining traction during its five-game winning streak. After three straight game with a 100-yard rusher, Penn State’s one-two punch of Zach Zwinak (12 carries for 42 yards) and Bill Belton (10 for 26) were held in check. The defensive line pushed around a Penn State front five that had been playing well, disrupting Matt McGloin, the

field in the race for the BCS title game with a month to go in the regular season. Alabama is locked in at No. 1, and if the Crimson Tide can keep winning it will play for its third championship in four years. The Wildcats (.9400), Fighting Irish (.9147) and Ducks (.9136) need to remain unbeaten, and keep an eye on each other. The computers ratings are still holding the Ducks back because their strength of schedule lags behind the other contenders. The Ducks are second in the Harris poll and USA Today coaches’ poll, but ranked fifth by the computer ratings. Kansas State is third in each poll and Notre Dame is fourth. But according to the computers, the Wildcats and Fighting Irish are tied for first. Oregon’s upcoming

schedule could help solve the Ducks’ problem. Oregon plays three opponents in the BCS top 25 (Southern California, Stanford and Oregon State) in its last four games, starting with the Trojans in Los Angeles on Saturday. The Pac-12 title game, if the Ducks get there, should give Oregon another quality opponent. Notre Dame, with four games left, faces only one more team with a winning record (USC). Kansas State has three winning teams in its four remaining opponents, though only No. 25 Texas is in the BCS top 25. Alabama is an overwhelming No. 1 in the Harris poll and USA Today coaches’ polls, and comes in third behind Notre Dame and Kansas State in the computer ratings. The Tide’s BCS average is .9759.

■ CONTINUED FROM 11 to the top. Two plays after quarterback Brandon Weeden converted on a fourth-and-1 with a sneak to keep the drive alive, Richardson took a handoff up the middle, broke two tackles and was kept upright by right guard Shawn Lauvao, who wrapped his hands around his teammate, before scampering in for his fifth TD. Richardson said once he was deep in San Diego’s secondary there was no stopping him. “They don’t want no problems,” he said. The Chargers (3-4) dropped their third straight. San Diego had a final chance, but quarterback Philip Rivers’ pass was batted away by Browns cornerback Buster Skrine with 1:24 left. Rivers finished 18 of 34 for 154 yards but had a potential touchdown pass dropped by Robert Meachem in the third quarter. “It could have been a big play,” Rivers said. “There were a lot of chances, not just that one.” With winds off Lake Erie gusting to more than 40 mph and a steady rain falling from the opening kick to the final whistle, neither offense could get anything going. “I’m still thawing out right now,” Richardson said. He had been limited in practice all week with a rib injury Richardson sustained two weeks ago. But unlike last week when he was tentative hitting the hole, Richardson ran with purpose from the outset. He also had an important 12-yard reception in the fourth when the Browns were backed up near their goal line. “This is football weather,” Richardson said. “You grow up looking at the Cleveland Browns and people up north and you wonder how they do it.” Because of the bad weather, the Chargers, too, were forced to run and Ryan Mathews picked up 95 yards on 24 attempts. Nick Novak kicked field goals of 43 and 31 yards for San Diego, which blew second-half leads in consecutive losses to New Orleans and Denver before its bye. But the Chargers never got ahead in this one and Meachem’s huge drop will be the play that haunts coach Norv Turner most this week. “You saw it. I saw it,” Turner said. “We go out and trust each other and this loss is on all of us. When you have opportunities to make plays, you’ve got to do it.” Meachem didn’t offer any excuses. “I took my eyes off of it,” he said. “I thought about scoring first before I caught the ball.” The Browns were effective getting Richardson outside with quick pitches, plays that allowed him to minimize smacked in the ribs and forced some of the Chargers defensive backs into situations where they had to try to bring down the bruising back in space not an easy job. Turner, though, felt one of his defenders should have brought Richardson down. “He got away from us,” Turner said. “He’s an outstanding young player, but on his touchdown run, we had a number of guys who didn’t make a play.”

105 Announcements

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

Halloween is more enjoyable when safety is part of the holiday.

WAYS TO MAKE HALLOWEEN SAFER Halloween is a time for people young and old to enjoy a little mischief and mayhem. To make the holiday even more enjoyable, celebrants can heed a few tips to make Halloween as safe as it is pleasurable. 1. Use face paints instead of masks that obscure vision. 2. Wear reflective tape on costumes of dark colors for trick-or-treating at night. 3. LED lights or glow sticks are a safer alternative to lit candles. Some lights even flicker to offer the appeal of candles.

4. Trick-or-treat in a group; never alone. 5. Take a planned route and don’t wander off the path. 6. Be sure costumes are not tripping hazards. 7. Costume on young children should be age-appropriate and free of hazards, such as strings that can strangle or small parts that can choke. 8. Stick to trick-or-treating in trusted neighborhoods. 9. Be extra-cautious of cars when walking at night. 2333128

Remember to walk, and not run, between houses.
