Olive Oil store opens up downtown

Plane hits ferris wheel An ultra-light plane crashed into a Ferris wheel at a rural festival in eastern Australia on Saturday, trapping two children on the ride and two adults in the aircraft for hours.There were no serious injuries. The Cheetah S200 carrying two men did not topple the Ferris wheel when it hit the frame near the top on the first morning of an annual three-day festival at Old Bar, a coastal village 220 miles (350 kilometers) north of Sydney, New South Wales Rural Fire Service spokesman Ben Shepherd said..

Some parents try early training Cen Campbell travels unusually light for a mom with a young child. No wet wipes. No changing pad. No disposable diapers. The extra baggage isn’t necessary because when Campbell’s toddler Jude needs to go to the bathroom, she brings him to the toilet. They’ve been doing this with mixed success since he was just 12 days old. “I wouldn’t want to sit in a wet diaper, so why would I make my child do it?” said Campbell. In the U.S., most new parents would count diapers among the “can’t live without” items for bringing up baby. See Page B3.

GOP wants less red tape

BY RON OSBURN Staff Writer rosburn@tdnpublishing.co m ancient poet The Homer called olive oil “liquid gold.” For centuries, olive oil has been a staple of the Mediterranean diet and now is enjoying a surge in popularity due to universal recognition of its healthful and medicinal properties. Now, with the official opening TROY tomorrow of The Olive Oasis, downtown at 7 E. Main St., Troy has a store that specializes almost exclusively in olive oils and balsamic vinegars. “I’m ready to get going,” 21-year-old store owner Lucas Schlumpf said with a grin as he and his mother, Lisa Reed, her husband Al, and store employee Jake Hemsley readied the store last week for its opening Monday. “We want to share our passion and teach people the health benefits of our products,” Lisa Reed said Thursday as she showed a pair of visitors through the store, which evokes the sunny Mediterranean with green, red and yellow interior colors and features what Reed calls “a Tuscany theme” painted mural. Operating just east of Public Square in a 2,000-square-foot space next to Pinky Scout children’s boutique, The Olive Oasis offers 27 different

WASHINGTON (AP) — The military mission in Libya is largely complete and NATO’s involvement could begin to wrap up as soon as this coming week after allied leaders meet in Brussels, according to the OUTLOOK top U.S. commander for Africa.

Besides being flavorful and offering health benefits, the thing that makes the products at The Olive Oasis special is the freshness, Schlumpf said. “We always have oils within 6 months of pressing,” he said, noting that generally, olive oils sold in the typical grocery store are at least one year old or more and in a light-colored bottle, which speeds the oils’ deterioration. Olive oil selections at The Olive Oasis include 10 fresh fruit varieties, such as Koroneiki from Australia and Sweet Barnea from Sicily, along

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House and congressional Republicans just can’t agree on the best prescription for the economy, with President Barack Obama demanding passage of his $447 billion jobs bill and the G O P pushing to cut government red tape. B o t h OBAMA efforts, the focus of competing radio and Internet addresses Saturday, face little chance of success as all-or-nothing proposals in a divided Congress. Three weeks after Obama submitted his legislation, the Democraticcontrolled Senate has yet to consider it. “It is time for Congress to get its act together and pass this jobs bill so I can sign it into law,” he said in his Saturday address. The president has mounted a steady public campaign on behalf of his bill, trying to cast Congress and Republicans in particular as obstacles. With a populist flair, Obama has barnstormed across the country to prod Congress, so far to no avail. The stops have come in contested election states such as Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado and Virginia, and the president has taken his message directly to the districts of

are close to that now. When NATO makes its decision, Ham said he believes there would be a seamless transition of control over the air and maritime operations to U.S. Africa Command. And, at least initially, some of the military surveillance coverage would remain in place. “We don’t want to go from what’s there now to zero overnight,” Ham said. “There will be some missions that will need to be sustained for some period of time, if for no other reason than to offer assurances to the interim government for things like border security, until such time that they are ready to do all that themselves.” U.S. intelligence and surveillance assets, such as drones, will likely stay in the region also to keep watch over weapons caches, to prevent the proliferation of weapons from Libya into neighboring countries. But Ham said air strikes would likely end, unless specifically requested by the Libyan transitional government. NATO took over command of the mission in March, after it was initially led by

INSPIRED Oils and balsamics at The Olive Oasis are from Veronica Foods, an Oakland, California-based distributor. “We’re one of only 200 Veronica (supplied) stores in the U.S.,” Schlumpf said. The Olive Oasis also offers a few high-end specialty products, such as Delizia, an ultra premium roasted olive oil, a Pinot Noir Wine Vinegar and a white truffle oil. An aged dark Reggio Emilia balsamic in a 100 ml bottle, for $120, is on display in the main display case. The store also offers a few items that are complimentary to oils and balsamics, such as rubs and spice packets. And Schlumpf and Reed say they plan to offer classes and special events featuring their products in the future. They also plan a Grand Opening for later in

October. It’s the first business venture for Schlumpf, a Vandalia resident for the past two years who said he now plans to move to Troy “very soon.” He’s backed in his venture by the Reed’s, who said they became interested in opening a store dedicated to olive oil and balsamic vinegars after visiting the Green Gate Olive Oils store in their adopted hometown of Pinehurst, North Carolina. “That’s what inspired us. That’s where we got the idea,” Lisa Reed said. In fact, Reed’s sister, Sheryl Cepek, opened her own specialty olive oil store in April just outside Pittsburgh. “When she saw (the Green Gate), she said, ‘we can do this,’” Reed said. Interestingly, Reed and Schlumpf said they were scouting the Troy area in July for possible locations for a store when they saw the vacant storefront at 7 E. Main St. Stacy Reuckhaus, who owns the building with her husband Steve, and operates Pinky

Mission • CONTINUED FROM A1 the U.S. in the early days of the bombing campaign. The mission was designed to enforce a U.N. resolution allowing the imposition of a no-fly zone and military action to protect Libyan civilians. The aggressive bombing runs that battered Gadhafi forces, weapons, air control, and other key targets, gave the revolutionary forces the time and breathing room to organize and begin to push into regime strongholds. A key turning point came about a month ago when the fighters were able to seize the capital, Tripoli, effectively ending Gadhafi’s rule. Now, the National Transitional Council has taken over the leadership of the nation and is promising to set up its new interim government, even as it continues to fight forces still loyal to the fugitive leader. Ham said NATO need not wait until Gadhafi is found and forced out of the

Jobs • CONTINUED FROM A1 On Tuesday, he will go to the Texas district represented by GOP Rep. Jeb Hensarling, co-chairman of a special deficit reduction committee in Congress. In the Republican address, Rep. Morgan Griffith of Virginia made a pitch for legislation in the House that would reduce regulatory requirements on businesses. He cited rules affecting cement plants and restrictions on institutional boilers as examples of government overreaching. “For years, excessive regulations have been a source of frustration for businesses trying to stay afloat,” he said. “President Obama, who has said he’s willing to consider stopping excessive regulations, should call on the Democrat-led Senate to follow the House in passing these jobs bills,” he said.

It all has the feel of a classic street protest with one exception: It’s unclear exactly what the demonstrators want. “When all the bailout money was spent on bonuses and stuff everyone was outraged, but no one did anything because no one feels like they can,” protester Jesse Wilson, 22, said this week when asked to take articulate the cause. “It’s time for us to come together to realize we are the masses, and we can make things happen.” But he couldn’t say what, exactly, he wanted to happen. Handmade signs carried by some of the demonstrators — “Less is More” and “Capitalism is evil” — hardly make it clearer.

country before ending the Libyan mission. “The fact that he is still at large some place is really more a matter for the Libyans than it is for anybody else,” said Ham, adding that President Barack Obama and other leaders made it clear that the object of the mission was about protecting the people, not killing Gadhafi. The goal now, said Ham, is for the U.S. to eventually establish a normal, militaryto-military relationship with Libya, including embassy staff and discussions about what security assistance the Libyans might want from America. He said he doesn’t see a major U.S. role in training or other military assistance, because other Arab nations are better suited for that. He added that the U.S. may be able to help re-establish Libya’s Coast Guard and maritime domain. Any U.S. military footprint in the country would remain small — probably less than two dozen troops at the embassy to work as staff and perform security.

city loan to help them purchase the building and relocate their business from South Market Street, and had just recently received a modification of their loan terms from the city as part of a business restructuring that included moving Pinky Scout inventory out of 7 E. Main St. and leasing out that side of the building. “I’m really happy the way it turned out. I wish them well. I think they’re going to bring more business here (to East Main Street),” Stacey Reuckhaus said about The Olive Oasis on Thursday.

Pair of city downtown building loans on agenda BY RON OSBURN Staff Writer rosburn@tdnpublishing.com Requests for a pair of city downtown building loans — one to repair stained glass windows on the Masonic building and one to purchase the former Knapke building on the square — are on Troy City Council’s agenda Monday. Also on the agenda is a proposed 6month moratorium on issuing zoning permits for Internet cafes within city limits. The moratorium is recommended with an emergency designation, meaning if approved, it would take effect immediately. After three years, Knapke Cabinets abruptly closed its downtown Troy store on Aug. 29, and the building — which consists of two storefronts at 2 and 6 East Main Street, and a second floor residential apartment that currently is vacant — recently went on the market. Downtown business owner Patty Rose and husband and business partner Chuck Sturwold, under the moniker P&C Ventures LLC, are seeking a $151,700 loan to purchase the building through the city’s Downtown Building Repair loan program. The loan, at 2 percent interest for 25 years, includes three points for closing costs. Minus the closing costs, the loan covers $147,281 of the total purchase price of $155,000 for the building, which is within the program’s guidelines of the buyers providing at least 10 percent of the

TROY purchase price. Normal terms for DBR loans are 10 years, but Troy Development Director Jim Dando recommended an exception to the typical term because its funding a purchase rather than just repairs. The Troy Masonic Temple is seeking a $45,000 DBR loan to make repairs to the three large stained glass windows on the front of the building, located downtown at 107 W. Main St. The city loan committee and a council committee both recommended approval of a 30-year DBR loan at 1 percent interest, with interest-only payments for the first two years. The Masonic board has pledged the 104-year-old temple building, located downtown at 107 W. Main St., as collateral. A city staff report said the four-story Temple building — home to the the Franklin Lodge No. 14 — has an accessed market value of $394,300 and is paid off in full. Council also is expected to approve the shifting of $400,000 from the city’s Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund to the DBR fund. The shift will even out the balances of both funds, and accommodate the two DBR loans, said Dando, who administrates the loan funds. Council meets at 7 p.m. Monday in council chambers, 2nd floor of city hall, 100 S. Market St.

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

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times on underwater mortgage refinancing: Soon there may be good news for homeowners who are underwater and cannot refinance at the record-low mortgage interest rates. President Barack Obama is seeking changes that would give these homeowners a chance to refinance despite their predicament. If such a plan succeeds, it could put billions of dollars back into homeowners’ pockets and help stabilize the housing market. The housing meltdown left an estimated 16 million borrowers owing more on their mortgages than their homes are currently worth. Most responsibly keep up with their payments, yet they are stuck with mortgages that carry interest rates of 6, 7 or 8 percent. They would love to refinance at current rates with interest on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage as low as 4 percent. If that were made possible, despite borrowers having little or no equity in their home or a low credit score, it could unlock hundreds of dollars in savings every month that could then be spent to stimulate the economy. Lower mortgage costs would also make staying in the home more affordable, leading to fewer defaults and foreclosures. The plan’s details are still vague, but they would allow borrowers to essentially switch out of a higher-interest mortgage and into a lower-interest one for any loan backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, the government-controlled housing giants. … The biggest downside in all this is for investors who stand to lose when mortgages at higher interest rates are paid off early. But investors lose even more when a homeowner defaults, a scenario more likely to be avoided when mortgage payments are lowered. Working families who are current on their mortgage but can’t refinance because their home’s value plunged through no fault of their own deserve this break. Now it needs to get done. Anderson Independent-Mail on mistaken Social Security payments: For several years, we’ve seen stories about people declared dead by the Social Security Administration. Many went through a lot of hoops to officially resurrect themselves. In the interim, they didn’t get the proper payments due. And for some people, this created a real hardship. But now we hear about $600 million in benefit payments that, over the past five years, were mailed to the deceased. The payments were meant for retired or disabled federal workers. But because former employers were not informed of the deaths (or maybe nobody reads the obituaries in Washington), the checks just kept going out. In one case, according to The Associated Press, the decedent’s son received and negotiated his father’s checks for 37 years after the retiree’s death. The mistaken payments were only discovered by authorities when the son died in 2008. It’s not a new problem, according to the Office of Personnel Management’s inspector general, Patrick McFarland, who said that the government has been aware of the problem since 2005. Here’s an idea: Take the millions of Americans who need jobs and put them to work simply calling all these folks and verifying that they’re still alive and kicking. At least for a while (probably years, frankly, with all the red tape that is likely involved in the task), our unemployment rate will take a turn for the better.

THEY SAID IT “I grew up at the Center. I learned how to swim here. Mr. Hughes taught me how to play basketball here. When I was a little kid, it was hard to get on the gym floor. But when I came back, I noticed it wasn’t like that anymore. I knew I had to do something, so I started volunteering here at the Center. When the opportunity arose to become executive director, I knew I had to do something to give back.” — New Lincoln Community Center executive director Shane Carter “I love the traffic, the synergy that’s downtown. And this building has such character.” — LeDoux’s restaurant owner Don LeDoux, on moving to downtown Troy “We use the soil samples to see which kind it is — if it’s loamy, silt and clay — clay can be bad sometimes, it holds water.” — Miami East FFA member Cody Reid, on the groups soil judging exercise

I urge the Obama Administration to not betray Ohio WASHINGTON, D.C. - “In the midst of the Solyndra controversy, that has raised serious questions about the Obama Administration’s oversight of taxpayer dollars, hundreds of Southern Ohio workers stand to lose their jobs if the Obama Administration reneges on the president’s promise to support an energy project in the small town of Piketon, Ohio. I urge the administration to not betray the citizens of Southern Ohio. “In September 2008, then-Sen. Obama, the Democratic nominee for president, promised Ohioans he would back United States Enrichment Corporation (USEC), Inc.’s application for a loan to construct the American Centrifuge Project’s uranium enrichment plant. In a letter to then-Governor of Ohio Ted Strickland, presidential candidate Barack Obama pledged that under his administration, ‘energy programs that promote safe and environmentally-sound technologies and are domestically produced, such as the enrichment facility in Ohio, will have my full support.’ “Since the president made his promise, USEC has endured years

John Boehner Sunday Columnist of review and taken the necessary steps to conserve cash and protect jobs. The company has even gone the extra mile to secure additional private investment to reduce taxpayer exposure, but the Department of Energy still has yet to act. “In March 2009, while USEC waited to hear word of whether the project would get a loan guarantee, the Department of Energy signed over a $535 million loan to Solyndra which would later be reported as made before final marketing and legal reviews were in. In the months following, administration officials and the president made their way to Solyndra to congratulate and

applaud their work while USEC continued to be delayed for further review for acceptance into the program. “In October 2010, the Department of Energy conceded that Solyndra had a ‘cash flow crisis,’ and then a little under a year later, Solyndra shut its doors, fired more than 1,100 workers, and filed for Chapter 11. Now the Piketon project is at risk of being shut down, leaving hundreds of jobs in limbo, and the Solyndra controversy has raised serious questions about the Obama Administration’s handling of taxpayer dollars. In that case, it was the government that seemingly went the extra mile, not the company. “In stark contrast to the ‘stimulus’-centric Solyndra saga, the Piketon project offers the chance to bring thousands of good-paying, long-term jobs to an area suffering from the Buckeye State’s highest jobless rate. But sadly, on September 30, 2011, USEC announced it would be forced to reduce spending on the Piketon project by 30 percent, and sent out notices to 450 employees who may have to be

laid off. “I agree with the sentiment that Senator Rob Portman expressed with the Department of Energy’s inaction: ‘It should not have come to this. These workers have waited long enough. I hope that the Obama Administration will realize the impact demobilization will have on Southern Ohio and on our national security and energy security needs and find a path to move forward with a conditional commitment as soon as possible.’ “The Obama Administration still has time to do the right thing, but not much. Without action soon, USEC announced today, it has no choice but to plan on hundreds of layoffs, suspend contracts, and move to shut down the project. That doesn’t have to happen. “I implore the president, on behalf of all Ohioans, to keep his word. “Boehner represents Ohio’s 8th District, which includes all of Darke, Miami, and Preble counties, most of Butler and Mercer counties, and the northeastern corner of Montgomery County. He was first elected to Congress in 1990.”

Romney, Perry to reach deeper into early states DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is following his long-planned, tested and methodical strategy to secure the Republican presidential nomination, while his chief rival, Rick Perry, is challenging the experienced campaigner on the fly. Meanwhile, several people close to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie say he’s reconsidering his decision to stay out of the race. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the issue. Neither Romney nor Perry is panicking nor retooling after an aggressive September battle in which each landed blows. But as they begin October, they will each reach deep-

er into the early contest state perceived to belong to the other man. Romney has kept a low profile in Iowa, but his campaign is growing in the state now, hoping to generate momentum by finishing in the top three in the caucuses, the first of the 2012 nominating contests. The former Massachusetts governor is dispatching his wife, Ann, there next week and plans his own visit later in the month. After scaling back sharply from his $10-million 2008 campaign in Iowa, Romney is now adding modestly to his small Iowa staff and building support among niche groups, such as the agricultural industry, local businesses and senior citizens.

Afghan leader gives up trying to talk to Taliban KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — President Hamid Karzai has given up trying to talk to the Taliban, saying in a video released Saturday that Pakistan holds the only key to making peace with insurgents and must do more to support a political resolution to the war. Karzai revealed his tougher stance against Pakistan, which he claims is harboring militants, on the same day that the Afghan intelligence service said it has hard evidence that the assassination of former President Burhanuddin Rabbani was planned on the southern outskirts of Quetta, the Pakistani city where key Taliban leaders are based. Interior Minister Bismullah Khan Mohammadi went even further, stating in an Afghan

parliamentary session that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency was involved in Rabbani’s killing — an allegation Pakistan has denied. “Without any doubt, ISI, is involved in this,” Mohammadi told Afghan lawmakers on Saturday. The claims follow similar accusations against Pakistan from the United States, reflecting the growing frustrations with a central player in the region whose cooperation is crucial even as its intentions are under question. Critics have accused the Pakistani government of protecting Taliban leaders to maintain good relations with the group in anticipation of Western forces’ eventual withdrawal from the country — an allegation denied by Pakistan. Many analysts also believe the

The following weekend, Perry plans to introduce himself to conservative northwest Iowa, where the Texas governor’s opposition to a fence on the U.S.Mexico border has raised eyebrows. Perry is organizing aggressively in Iowa and has already peeled support away from rivals Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum in the state where he is expected to do well. Although Romney has only visited the state twice this year, he has maintained some support, and the latest moves there up the ante. “There are enough people in the Republican Party in Iowa who want to keep the focus on jobs and the economy,” Romney’s senior Iowa strategist David Kochel said. Afghan President Hamid Karzai, left, reacts after a man attempts to kiss his hand as he receives condolences from Afghan and the other nationalities high ranking delegations during a memorial service for former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani at the mosque of presidential palace in Kabul, Afghanistan, Saturday Sept. 24.

ISI’s alleged support for insurgent groups is an attempt to promote Pakistan’s interests in Afghanistan and counter the influence of archenemy India, which Karzai plans to visit this week. Addressing a public rally on Saturday, Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani offered to share intelligence on Rabbani’s assassination and said his nation was ready to hold talks with anyone interested in peace. Most of the Taliban leadership is thought to be living in Pakistan, and its governing council, the Quetta Shura, is named after the Pakistani city. Calling Karzai his brother and friend, Gilani said, “He has some misunderstanding on the assassination of Professor Rabbani.”

Libyan family killed fleeing TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Two children and their parents were killed by machine-gun fire Saturday while trying to flee Moammar Gadhafi’s hometown along with hundreds of other residents, as forces loyal to the ousted regime engaged in heavy clashes with revolutionary fighters surrounding the city. Their bodies were brought to a makeshift hospital outside Sirte, said a doctor there, Nuri Naari. They were hit by machinegun fire as they drove toward the positions of revolutionary forces on the edges of the city, he said. It was unclear who killed them. Meanwhile, the top U.S. commander for Africa told The Associated Press on Saturday that the military mission in Libya was largely complete and NATO’s involvement could begin to wrap up as soon as next week after allied leaders meet in Brussels. Sirte is one of the last cities to remain in loyalist hands. After months of stalemate in Libya’s civil war, anti-Gadhafi forces swept into the capital in August and their leaders set up a transitional government. But the continued fighting in holdout cities and the failure to find and capture Gadhafi has kept Libya’s new leaders from being able to declare victory. Revolutionary forces had given families inside Sirte two days to leave the city starting Friday, said Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, head the National of Transitional Council that now runs the country. They tried to keep a safe corridor open for civilians fleeing the coastal city. “This period will give a chance for families to leave

Libyan revolutionary fighters rest during an attack for the city of Sirte, Libya, Saturday. Rebel forces are battling to make headway against loyalist fighters inside the home town of Libya’s ousted leader Moammar Gadhafi. the areas of fighting,” he said at a press conference Saturday. Hundreds of cars carrying Sirte residents formed long lines at revolutionary forces’ checkpoints leading out of the city, calmly waiting to be checked by the fighters as explosions echoed in the distance. Also Saturday, the International Committee of the Red Cross sent a team including a doctor into to deliver Sirte medical supplies to a hospital. In a press statement, the ICRC said there were 200 wounded people at the Ibn Sina hospital, which had shortages of fuel for its generator, as well as body bags and dressing kits. Because of security conditions the ICRC said the team had to leave before assessing the humanitarian needs of civilians, but was able to speak to Sirte representatives who reported water and food shortages. “The hospital is facing a huge influx of patients, medical supplies are running out and there is a desperate need for oxygen. On top of that, the water reservoir has been damaged,”

read the statement. After weeks of fighting Gadhafi’s loyalists inside Sirte, the fighters now hold positions about three miles (five kilometers) from the city center, said commander Mustafa al-Rubaie. Last week, the Libyan Defense Ministry announced that Sirte’s port, airport and military base were all under their control. Al-Rubaie told The Associated Press that fighters from the east seized control of Sirte’s first residential district and a hotel where Gadhafi’s snipers were based. “There is heavy fighting going on in the streets of Sirte right now,” he said. “The enemy is besieged from the south, east and west but it’s still in possession of highly sophisticated weapons and a large amount of ammunition.” Al-Rubaie said Gadhafi forces were also in control of strategic positions inside the city, including high-rise buildings where snipers are positioned, making the revolutionary forces’ advance slow and hard. “The plan is that the eastern and western forces

Incomes fall for first time in nearly 2 years WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans earned less in August than in July, the first decline in nearly two years. With less income, consumers could cut back on spending and weaken an already-fragile economy. Their lower pay explains why consumers increased spending at a slower pace in August. And most of the increase went to pay higher prices for food and gas. When adjusted for inflation, spending was flat. Many people tapped their savings to cover the steeper costs. The savings rate fell to its lowest level since December 2009. The decline in income offered “more evidence that households are in quite a bind,” said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Consumer spending rose 0.2 percent in August, after growing 0.7 percent in July, the Commerce Department said Friday. Incomes fell 0.1 percent, which was the first decline since October 2009. The data also contributed to a rough day of Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled to close 240 points down. Broader indexes also fell. When people have less income, they spend less and

The economy grew just 0.9 percent in the first half of the year, the worst sixmonth stretch since the recession officially ended more than two years ago. Most economists have

been predicting the second half of the year will be slightly better, in part because gas prices have come down since peaking this spring. Dales estimates 2.5 percent growth in the JulySeptember quarter and 1.5 percent in the final three months of the year. Those

estimates take into account the weaker income figures. Such growth may be enough to calm recession fears. But it is far from what is needed to lower the unemployment rate, which was 9.1 percent in August. And Dales cautioned that he might have to lower his estimates even further if

consumers have less money to spend. “Households haven’t seen their incomes increase at all this year. That goes a long way to explain why consumption growth has been so weak,” Dales said. “Job growth is stagnant and even those people who do have a job are not in a posi-

tion to spend because their incomes are not growing.” Most people probably didn’t experience an actual pay cut last in August. But the economy added no new jobs. And among those who were working, average hourly earnings dropped 3 cents and hours worked fell slightly. Those factors combined to lower wages and salaries. Many retailers, particularly discounters like Target Corp. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc., have cut workers’ hours. They’re under pressure to trim expenses, said Burt Flickinger III, president of retail consultancy Strategic Resource Group, and labor is the biggest expense after inventory. In June, Target had its first union election in two decades after facing allegations that it paid skimpy wages and reduced hours at a Valley Stream, N.Y. store. However, Target has repeatedly denied there was a companywide plan to reduce workers’ hours. Advances in technology have also helped merchants optimize workers’ schedules, too. So they have more workers on duty during peak sales times without being overstaffed during lulls.

Oil pipeline argument focuses on jobs, environment factors MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) — Backers of an oil pipeline that would cut across Oklahoma to deliver crude oil from Canada to refineries in Houston want the jobs that would come with the project, but environmental groups say the damage to natural areas isn’t worth the benefits the shortcut would bring. Supporters of the 1,700-mile pipeline that would carry oil that’s being extracted from Canadian oil sands also said at a Friday hearing by the U.S. State Department that it’s better to buy crude from a close ally than from unstable sources from overseas. Federal officials also held hearings this past week in Nebraska, South Dakota, Texas, Kansas and Montana. Opponents of the $7 billion project, including Oklahoma

Sierra Club Chairman Charles Wesner, say the pipeline is bound to leak and cause environmental problems. The Oklahoman reported that Wesner said oil development in Canada is destroying millions of acres of boreal forest and contributing to global warming. “Pipelines are notorious for leaking,” he said. “It’s not a matter of if; it’s a matter of where and when. It’s going to cause a great deal of destruction, somewhere at some time,” Wesner said. American Petroleum Institute economist John Felmy said Wesner overstated his argument and that the pipeline would provide a path for moving $17 trillion worth of oil that’s under the ground in Canada. Calgary-based TransCanada would operate the Keystone XL pipeline. An existing line starts in

There’ll be a lot of jobs for welders, operators digging ditches and getting it back the way they found it again. It isn’t anything new. It’s just the length and enormity of the job that sets this one apart. — Kenny Whitson

Alberta, Canada, and runs through the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba before heading south through the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, and ending at Cushing, Okla., in the state’s north-central region. The Keystone XL would take a more direct route to Cushing, going through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, and meet-

ing up with the existing route at the Nebraska-Kansas border. The new line would extend from Cushing south into Texas, where it would stretch to Houston, with a branch also going to Port Arthur. Environmental groups fear the pipeline would leak and endanger subsurface water supplies across the territory and disrupt wildlife

habitats. They also say the project is being rushed to approval without adequate safeguards and emergency response plans, something backers deny. The Norman Transcript reported that two members of the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 344, Kenny Whitson and James McDonald of Oklahoma City, said the environmental concerns aren’t so great. Plus, they want the jobs that construction of the underground pipeline would create. “I think it’s people overreacting,” McDonald said. “There’ll be a lot of jobs for welders, operators digging ditches and getting it back the way they found it again,” Whitson said. “It isn’t anything new. It’s just the length and the enormity of the job that sets this one apart.” A police officer with a bullhorn addresses a large group of protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement who attempted to cross the Brooklyn Bridge, effectively shutting parts of the roadway down, Saturday, Oct. 1, in New York.

Banks continue fee studies (AP) — Bank of America says it will start charging a $5 monthly fee early next year if customers use their debit cards to make purchases. It’s just the latest unwelcome change for bank customers in the past year or so. Here are some other recent changes at the four largest banks: BANK OF AMERICA — A new $5 fee to replace debit cards took effect in September; a rush overnight order costs $20. Previously, both services were free. — The bank is currently testing a menu of checking accounts with a variety of fee options in Arizona, Georgia and Massachusetts. The fees range from $6 to $25 a month depending on the level of service. — In May, the monthly fee on the basic MyAccess account rose to $12, from the previous $8.95. Customers can still avoid the fee by setting up direct deposit of at least $250 or maintaining a balance of $1,500. — The bank introduced its eBanking account in August of last year. Customers are offered free checking if they opt to receive statements online, and do their banking online and at ATMs. If they want to make a deposit or withdrawal through a teller at a branch, they’re charged a onetime fee of $8.95 for that month. CHASE — The bank ended its debit rewards program in July. A month later, the bank introduced a new program that offers customers varying cash back offers when shopping through its online mall. Some customers are also emailed limited-time, in-store cash back offers. — In February, Chase introduced a new basic checking account with a $12 monthly fee, up from the previous $6. The fee is waived for customers who make direct deposits that total $500 a month or maintain a minimum balance of $1,500. Previously, the fee on the basic checking account was waived when

customers made at least five debit card purchases a month. —The bank earlier this year tested $4 and $5 ATM fees for non-customers in Texas and Illinois, respectively. The test was ended in May. —The bank is testing a $3 monthly fee for debit cards in northern Wisconsin. —Chase is also testing a $15 monthly fee for basic checking accounts in Georgia. CITIBANK — Starting in December, Citi said it will raise the fee on its basic checking account to $10 a month, up from $8. Customers will have to maintain a balance of at least $1,500 or sign up for direct deposit and online bill pay to avoid the fee. Currently, the monthly fee is waived if customers make at least five transactions of any type each month. — Citi also said it will no longer give rewards points for debit card purchases. But the bank said customers will be able to earn more points each month by opening a Citi savings account or setting up a feature that automatically transfers money into a savings account. — Following the Bank of America announcement this week, Citi noted that it has no plans to introduce a debit card fee. WELLS FARGO — The bank is ending its debit rewards program in October. —The bank also plans to test a $3 monthly debit card fee starting Oct. 14. The fee will be applied to checking accounts opened in Georgia, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington. The fee would be in addition to the fees ranging from $5 to $30 that Wells Fargo already charges. Those monthly fees can be waived if customers meet certain conditions. —The bank stopped offering free checking accounts with no strings attached in July of last year.

400 arrested after protest NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say about 400 protesters were arrested after they swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge and shut down a lane of traffic for several hours. Police say some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway Saturday night after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway. They face disorderly conduct and other charges. The lane has since reopened. Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are

railing against corporate greed, global warming and social inequality, among other grievances. The group has been camped near the Financial District for two weeks and clashed with police on earlier occasions. Earlier Saturday, two other marches went over the bridge without problems. One was from Brooklyn to Manhattan by a group opposed to genetically modified food. Another in the opposite direction marched against poverty.

Mobile homes hit hard by Irene Residents of BERLIN, Vt. (AP) — After paying rent for her entire adult life, buying a mobile home was a dream come true for Sandra Gaffney. But 11 months later, that dream was destroyed by floodwaters when the remnants of Hurricane Irene ripped through her mobile home park, flooding her trailer and about 70 others. Gaffney, 64, had gotten out in time, fleeing to her sister’s home in neighboring Montpelier, unlike her neighbors at Weston’s Mobile Home Park, who had to be rescued by boats and high-water vehicles. The retired paraeducator learned of the devastation when she saw a photo of her trailer on a local radio station’s Facebook page. “I saw my trailer with water all the way up to the windows,” she said. “And then I totally sobbed.” Thirteen mobile home parks in Vermont were flooded when the Aug. 28 storm hit, turning streams and rivers into raging waterways that carried away bridges and large segments of roads and damaged or destroyed 840 homes. That includes at least 141 mobile homes that were destroyed and 220 that were flooded, some so severely they may be declared total losses. Now those homeowners — many of them with no flood insurance — must pay to remove the destroyed trailers and some are waiting for Federal Emergency Management Agency help. Others have no long-term option for housing with winter just a few months away. “My impression from talking to people is that a lot them still don’t know what they’re going to do,” said Sarah Weintraub, an organizer with the Vermont Workers’ Center, a group that works for

In this Sept. 27, photo, sub-contractor Marissa Wyman works to clean out a mobile home that was flooded during Tropical Storm Irene at Westons Mobile Home Park in Berlin, Vt. social and economic justice in Vermont. “We are concerned that a lot of people are doubling up with neighbors, staying with family, some may even be staying in campers,” said Jennifer Hollar, deputy commissioner of the Vermont Department of Economic, Housing and Community Development. “We feel there might be a second wave of need as people run to the end of the time when their temporary situations are going to work for them. Our message to everyone — and we’re trying to send this message as loudly and as clearly — is to register with FEMA, even if you have a temporary situation.” Mobile homes, an affordable housing option for many, are especially vulnerable to floodwaters. In Vermont, many were built in the 1960s on flood

plains before the state’s land-use rules were enacted, said Shawn Gilpin, program director for the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity mobile home project. The materials used in older homes and the way many of them were constructed make them rife for mold infiltration, he said. “They tend to be more difficult to repair than to replace, usually,” he said. In Williamstown, Mass., near the Vermont state line, floodwaters entered more than 200 mobile homes in one mobile home park on the Hoosick River. Five weeks later, only 25 homes have been repaired and made habitable. “More units are going to be very hard and very expensive to come by,” said Town Manager Peter Fohlin. In Vermont and other parts of the country hit by

disastrous floods this year, existing shortages of affordable housing have compounded efforts to get replacement housing for trailer dwellers. Thousands of homes, including 650 mobile homes, were inundated by flooding that lasted for three weeks in Minot, N.D., from June to early July. “And Minot had a critical housing shortage before the flood … so basically there are no apartments to be rented and no homes to be bought. And then we lost 4,000 housing units,” said Maj. Gen. Murray Sagsveen, the National Guard officer coordinating the state’s flood relief efforts. Because the flooding took place in the summer, when temperatures soared into the 90s, mold became a tremendous problem at the mobile home parks, Sagsveen said.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Nine Crooked Creek families plan to move into new homes designed by the Fairbanks nonprofit Cold Climate Housing Research Center over the next several days, giving them a warm place to stay just as snow begins to dust the mountains south of the Kuskokwim River village. Just five months ago, spring flooding destroyed their riverside homes. The Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/omwgAm ) reports water shoved log houses from their foundations and swept through living rooms. The state says about a fourth of occupied houses in the village were destroyed. Gov. Sean Parnell declared the flood a state disaster, which made about $45,000 in individual assistant grants available to each displaced family in Crooked Creek, which is about 140 miles northeast of Bethel. The May 8 ice jam and flooding that swept through town was similar to the Yukon River flooding that decimated the village of Eagle in 2009, said John Madden, director of the state emergency management division. Helen Macar, 37, was five months pregnant at the time of the spring floods. She’d just finished cleaning the family’s log cabin when the water arrived at the steps of her deck. Macar grabbed a picture from the wall and headed for higher ground. “I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. All we had was what we were wearing,” she said. The flood carried her house 100 feet from its foundation. Fourteen homes were destroyed, according to the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Dozens of volunteers for faith-based relief groups began building nine replacement homes in August. Macar toured her one-bedroom home for the first time after the community celebration. “Holy cow,” she said, carrying her infant son to the kitchen as her children inspected the bedroom. “Look, we have cabinets, you kids.” Macar said she felt overwhelmed and very thankful. “My kids have a house before winter,” she said. With metal siding and 14-inch walls filled with a soy-based foam insulation, the new homes dotting Crooked Creek are all the same deep blue. Each stands at least a foot above the village’s new highwater mark, resting on gravel beds and raised wooden platforms. The housing research center created the design with rapid construction in a remote locale in mind, said Aaron Cooke, an architectural designer for Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian humanitarian organization. The skeleton of each home — the walls, roof and floor — are made from trusses that were shipped already assembled to the village.

Spartan ‘D’ stuffs Buckeyes, 10-7 COLUMBUS (AP) — All of Ohio State’s NCAA investigations and sanctions might not have been as painful for Buckeyes fans as this. Kirk Cousins threw a 33-yard scoring pass to B.J. Cunningham and Michigan State’s No. 1ranked defense overwhelmed the bumbling Buckeyes 10-7 Saturday, shutting them out until the final seconds. Interim coach Luke Fickell, who took over when Jim Tressel

was pushed out for breaking NCAA rules, could only allude to the ugly defeat as “what happened today.” Michigan State (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) came in as the national leader in total defense (172 yards per game) and passing defense (101 ypg) and backed up that lofty ranking.

Tipp junior leads team to County win BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@tdnpublishing.com

WEST MILTON The Tippecanoe junior cruised past the competition and around the course, winning the Miami County Invitational by 51 seconds in a marked return to the form that carried him to an eighth-place finish in the state a season ago and leading the Red Devils to a firstplace finish as a team on a cold, Milton-Union’s Sergei Brubaker and Troy’s Cody Fox finished fourth and fifth, respectively, at the Miami County Invitational ■ See BOYS on 13 Saturday.

Heading into Saturday’s Miami County Invitational, Tippecanoe coach Byron Kimmel, Troy coach Kevin Alexander and Covington coach Libby Long expected it to be a three-team race between their schools. Judging by the post-race results, it was clear why the coaches thought that, with 12 out of the first 15 runners to cross the finish line coming from either from Tipp, Troy or Covington.

WEST MILTON To give even more of an indication of how close the three schools were, Tipp posted an average time of 21:05, while Troy came in at 21:13 and Covington logged a 21:28. “We knew going in that it was going to be a three-team race and that there should be roughly 10 points separating the top three teams,” Troy coach Kevin Alexander said. “It was going to be who ran the best and who stepped up.” In the end, it was Tippecanoe’s blend of youth and experience that helped will them to a threepeat as the Miami County champs. The Devils had all five scorers in the top 14, with sophomore Claudia Barhorst and freshman Brinna Price leading the charge. Barhorst finished third in a time

Trojans struggle at rainy GWOC meet Trojans put it all together Friday Friday night’s effort was the type of performance mostTrojan fans have been waiting for since Week 1. Returning most of its starters from a playoff team last season, most expected the Trojans to dominate the opposition this year. That, however, did not happen, as the Trojans frequently looked listless against Fairborn, Springboro and Beavercreek. See Page 12.

MIAMI COUNTY

CENTERVILLE — It was an up-and-down day for Troy at the Greater Western Ohio Conference “gold flight” tournament Saturday morning at Centerville High School. And the weather played no small part in that. Frigid morning conditions gave way to an hour-and-a-half

rain delay early in the tournament, disrupting everyone’s rhythm as the Trojans finished sixth, seventh or eighth at four of the five spots and finished the tournament with 16 points. Hailey Winblad kept her focus at second singles, defeating Fairmont 8-2 and Beavercreek 80 before falling to Springboro 8-0

in the championship match. “Hailey played great today,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “Finish second here, she had a great day.” Ivy Smith led 4-1 against Greenville when the rain halted the action, and Greenville rallied to win the match 8-6. Smith then lost to Springfield 8-5 and Centerville 8-1. “Ivy had a rough day today,”

Goldner said. “She’s played great all year, and she wasn’t too happy with herself after today. I told her that it was just one of those days. These things happen, and she’ll get it back.” Amber Smith was sixth at third singles, losing to Greenville 8-4, beating Butler 8-1 and losing to Springfield 8-3.

The defense did it Trojans smother Butler offense leading into Piqua week BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor fong@tdnpublishing.com Some final notes from the Troy football team’s 49-15 victory over Vandalia-Butler Friday. • Player of the Game: The entire Troy defense. After two shaky efforts against Springboro and Beavercreek, Troy turned in a stellar effort on defense against the Aviators — and to single out one player would not be fair. It was, by far, Troy’s best team effort on defense this season. Yes, the Trojans gave up nearly 300 yards in total offense — but it also held a team that came in averaging better than 30 points per game to just 15 points. Troy’s defense made plays when called upon.

Troy’s Marcus Foster tackles a Butler receiver Friday night.

TROY Butler running back Tyler Jones came in averaging 220 rushing yards per game and did gouge the Trojans for 165 yards and a pair of touchdowns — but Troy didn’t allow Jones to beat them. Of Jones’ 165 yards, 67 came on a play in which Butler caught the Trojans out of position. All told, it was a big night for the Trojan defense. • Play of the Game: Up 15-8 late in the second quarter and facing fourthand-10 at the Butler 31, Troy quarterback Cody May hooked up with his favorite target, receiver Ian Dunaway, on a 31yard touchdown pass. Not only did the score give the Trojans a two-touchdown lead going into halftime, but a huge boost of momentum as well. Troy would add a touchdown early in the third quarter, putting the Trojans up 298. With the way Troy’s defense was playing

Troy’s Ian Nadolny intercepts a pass in front of a Butler receiver during the second half of Friday night’s 49-15 Trojan victory. Friday, that would be more than enough of a cushion. “We ran the ball well, which opened things up for the passing game,” Nolan said. “Cody made a nice throw and Dunaway had an excellent catch on that touchdown. That’s the thing about our offense this year — we don’t have to rely solely on the run to win games.” • Unsung Hero of the Game: Troy’s offensive line. Matched up against a massive Butler defense, Troy’s offensive line more than held its own. Sophomore tackles Alex Dalton and Seth Overla, guards Ethan Hargrove and Cody Zeller and cen-

ter Ryne Rich cleared the way for a Trojan offense that rushed for 319 yards. Running backs Isaiah Williams (99 yards) and Zach Jones (96 yards) both nearly topped the 100yard rushing mark. In a game that most figured would be won and lost in the trenches, Troy’s offensive line outplayed a Butler offensive line that featured a pair of future Division I college football players. • What We Learned: Friday night’s effort was the type of performance most Trojan fans have been waiting for since Week 1. Returning most of its starters from a playoff team last season, most

expected the Trojans to dominate the opposition this year. That, however, did not happen, as the Trojans frequently looked listless against Fairborn, Springboro and Beavercreek. But on a big stage against a name opponent (Butler entered the game undefeated), Troy turned it on. Troy overwhelmed Butler in every facet of the game — offense, defense and special teams. Perhaps Troy learned its lesson from those sloppy efforts against Fairborn, and Springboro Beavercreek. If that’s the case, Troy could be a team to watch the rest of the way. • What Happens Now: It certainly doesn’t get any easier for the Trojans. This week the Trojans host rival Piqua (3-3), followed by a trip to unbeaten TrotwoodMadison (6-0). The Trojans knew going into the season that this threegame stretch likely would determine whether they won the league title and qualified for a return trip to the playoffs. Troy has completed the first part of that threeweek journey. Now comes step two.

Bees suffer 1st loss Tippecanoe, Wayne battle to 0-0 draw on muddy night Staff Reports

MIAMI COUNTY

BRANDT — It took a state-ranked foe to hand Bethel its first loss of the season. Dayton Christian (8-2-2) entered Saturday’s contest the ninth-ranked team in Division III, but the Bees gave the Warriors everything they could handle and more. But Dayton Christian scored the game-winning goal five minutes after Bethel tied the score and tacked on two meaningless goals in the final five minutes to win 4-1. “This was definitely a heavyweight brawl,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “They’re a really good team. We had our chances, but they could say the same thing. It was just a really good Division III soccer game.” Dayton Christian took a 1-0 lead in the first half and held it for most of the game. But midway through the second half, Joe Zimmerman headed in a cross from Kyle Hamlin to even the score. It didn’t stay even long. “They answered pretty quick after we tied it up, about four to five minutes after,” Hamlin said. “The final score was not indicative of the energy both teams put out tonight. These were the two teams that we thought were the toughest in the area.” Bethel (12-1) battles Newton Thursday night for the top spot in the Cross County Conference. Tippecanoe 0, Wayne 0 TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe played a

respectable Wayne team to a 0-0 draw Saturday night. Although the game was played to a draw, Tippecanoe coach Scott Downing was satisfied with the effort of his team. “It was a really wellplayed game on both sides,” Downing said. “It was just a fast-paced game that was played on field that was just a mud pit. We thought we could go in and get a win, but Wayne is a good team. “Ryan Pignatiello played a great game in goal for us. He was all over anything that was shot at him.” The Devils (7-3-1) host Tecumseh on Monday. Tecumseh 9, Milton-Union 1 NEW CARLISLE — Tecumseh (8-3-1) was too much to handle for the Bulldogs Saturday in a 9-1 loss by the Bulldogs. No further details were provided. Yellow Springs 3, Lehman 1 YELLOW SPRINGS — The Yellow Springs Bulldogs held off Lehman Saturday in non-league play, 3-1 at home. No further details were provided. • Girls Wayne 2, Tippecanoe 1 TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe (7-4-2) fought back to tie Saturday’s game against Wayne, but the Warriors snuck one home with six minutes left to leave Tipp City Park with a 2-1 victory in non-league play. Trailing 1-0 at the half,

Tippecanoe’s Sarah Janosik scored the game-tying goal with 12:24 left to play. But Wayne kept the pressure on all night and was able to come up with the game-winner with six minutes left in the game. “The girls played really well against a very good team who is ranked third in the area,” Tippecanoe coach Doug Rabe said. “We played a good game, but credit goes out to Wayne on winning. They were able to put the ball in the net and we weren’t. “Janosik played a nice game on defense for us and sophomore goalie Sam Bonifas played well in goal with eight saves.” Tippecanoe travels to Tecumseh Monday night. Piqua 2, Miami East 1 PIQUA — The Piqua Indians gutted it out for a 21 win over local rival Miami East Saturday in Piqua. “We knew going in that this was going to be a tough game,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “In the most recent MVSSCA polls, Piqua was ranked No. 10 among Division I schools. They’re having a very good season.” Piqua got on the board early in the first half on a goal by Haley Dotson. The Vikings almost had the equalizer just minutes later as Katrina Sutherly shot one from out wide that Piqua keeper Kelsey Deal was just able to get her fingertips on to knock wide for a corner. Both teams had opportunities but went into the break with Piqua leading 1-0. The Vikings came out strong to start the second

half, scoring two and a half minutes in. Kylie Brown and Katrina Sutherly worked the give and go up the sideline, then Sutherly sent one to the endline for Brown. Brown dropped it to Sutherly, who then crossed it. Chelsea Sherman made the diagonal run in to finish the cross. The 1-1 score stood until 6:30 left when a foul was called on the Vikings 30 yards from their goal. Cheryl Bell made a run in on the ensuing free kick and was able to deflect the ball past the Viking keeper. “I’m obviously somewhat disappointed in the end result,” Carson said. “I felt this was a game that we could have won. But I was pleased with the effort. Our ball movement was good, we kept possession and remained patient. We just weren’t able to find the net. Luck was not on our side. “Deal had a great game in the goal for Piqua. She’s probably one of the better keepers we’ve seen all season, and she was coming out and intercepting our crosses. The one that we pulled out and kept away from her, we scored on.” The Vikings are now 8-22 and will travel to MiltonUnion Saturday. Lehman 5, Yellow Springs 0 YELLOW SPRINGS — Sarah Titterington scored two goals and Abby Ciregio had two assists to lead Lehman’s offense in a 5-0 win over Yellow Springs Saturday. Marla Schroeder and Taylor Lachey each added a goal and an assist and Karly Baird scored a goal.

Tippecanoe’s Nellessen finishes TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe’s Sierre Nellessen was left hanging Thursday thanks to the rain.

Saturday, she completed the Red Devils’ sweep. Sierra Nellessen was leading Taylor Culbertson 6-1, 4-6, 1-0 at first singles when the match was suspended due to rain Thursday. The two renewed play Saturday morning at Schroeder Tennis Center, with Nellessen finishing off the match easily 6-0 in the third set. With the win, Nellessen improved to 80 in Central Buckeye Conference play. Nellessen and the Red Devils begin sectional play Tuesday.

Boys ■ CONTINUED FROM 11 damp Saturday morning in West Milton. “I love this course,” Wharton said. “I love running through the woods. The weather was less than optimal today, but it all worked out. We had great competition today, and we ran well as a team.” Wharton finished in 15:50, Nick Noone was seventh (17:04), Rick Andrews was eighth (17:10), Grant Koch was 11th (17:22) and Michael Landwehr was 14th (17:30) as the Devils scored 41 points as a team, beating runner-up Troy by six. And to Wharton and the Devils, a strong showing Saturday meant a lot more than just bragging rights. “Sam struggled a little bit at Lancaster last week,” Tippecanoe coach Byron Kimmel said. “It was a very hilly course. He was motivated this week to send a message that he’s still running strong. He ran a very comfortable race today.” After making the move up to Division I this season, messages like that carry more meaning, too. “We’re in Division I now, so we’ve been going to meets a lot farther away to get high-level competition,” Wharton said. “It was nice to come back home and run against some local competition. It’s always nice to run against people that live next door to you.” And Tippecanoe literally gets to run at home this week — the Devils will host the Tippecanoe Invitational Wednesday at Kyle Park. “If we were still in Division II right now, we’d be one of the top three teams in the state. It’s a lot tougher in D-I,” Kimmel said. “Wednesday will be a nice test — for Sam against Jesse Marino from Stebbins in our conference, and for us against Beavercreek. We had to beat Troy, and we had to beat Butler at the Alliance. If we can beat Beavercreek, we should lock up a No. 2 seed at the district. “Our boys ran well today. Troy’s good, though. They’ll give us a run for our money the rest of the year.” • Battle for Second With Wharton as the frontrunner, most of the drama was in the chase for second place. In the end, Trojan freshman Troy Schultz edged out Troy Christian’s Kyle Klingler by four seconds as both runners continued their recent run of strong showings, as well. Schultz finished in 16:41, while Klingler finished in a season-best 16:45. “After the way Troy ran last week, we thought he could get second today,” Troy coach Bob Campbell said. “We also though Cody (Fox) would run well after this week in practice, and he ran his best time of the year And our threefour-five guys didn’t run poorly, either.” Fox finished fifth (16:54), Josh Enke was 12th (17:22), Jon Osman was 13th (17:23) and

Troy Christian’s Kyle Klingler approaches the finish line during the Miami County Invitational Saturday at the Lowry Complex in West Milton. Branden Nosker was 15th (17:42) to lead Troy to second place overall with 47 points. Schultz still had his eyes on first place, though. “We didn’t know what (Wharton) was going to do or how he’d come out, so I was going to try to stay as close to him as possible,” Schultz said. “He’s a junior, he’s been to state — and doing that (staying close) is hard sometimes.” Klingler knows the feeling. “Last year I got second to him (Wharton), and I was kind of hoping to get at least second again,” the Eagle senior said. “I look forward to this race every year.” Both runners, though, also had the end of the season on their minds. “Last year, I barely missed going to state,” Klingler said. “I ran my season best today, but my PR is 10 seconds faster — and that came here at this race last year. I’m hoping to get to state this year — and maybe break the school record (16:28).” “We’ve all just got to keep running as a team and stay strong,” Schultz said. “Hopefully at the regional we can finish our top five close together and get out to state.” “The guys are working hard and getting better. We’re encouraged,” Campbell said. “We’ve got two weeks until the (Greater Western Ohio Conference) meet and three weeks until district. With Butler in our league and as strong as our district is, we know we’ve got to be on.” • County’s Best With Tippecanoe and Troy so far ahead, the rest

Host Milton-Union took third place with 71 points. Sergei Brubaker was fourth (16:53), Logan Jackson was sixth (17:01), Cory Klosterman was 17th (17:51), Troy Tyree was 19th (17:58) and Matt Howard was 25th (18:14). The Covington Buccaneers had a solid day, also, finishing fourth with 94 points. Dustin Fickert and Lane White were ninth and 10th, respectively, with matching times of 17:16. Matt Carder was 20th (18:01), Alex Schilling was 22nd (18:06) and Isaac Canan was 41st (19:07). As a team, Troy

Christian was fifth with 119 points. Max Conover was 23rd (18:12), Mark Dillahunt was 31st (18:35), Blake Klingler was 39th (18:57) and Craig Helman was 43rd (19:15). Miami East was sixth with 152 points. Seth Pemberton was 16th (17:48), Josh Ewing was 29th (18:27), Brandon Kirk was 38th (18:57), Matthew Amheiser was 57th (20:04) and Austin Kowalak was 74th (21:49). Bethel’s Aaron Reed was the top individual finisher without a full team, taking 26th (18:18). Newton’s David Brauer was 44th (19:16) and Piqua’s Daret Spradley was 46th (19:18).

Bills look to extend 10-game streak vs. Bengals CINCINNATI (AP) — The good times are finally rolling for the unbeaten Bills, the newly crowned kings of the comeback. They’re the only unbeaten team left in the AFC, off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2008. They pulled off another amazing rally to end a grating, 15-game losing streak against New England. They’ve become the toast of their town, an overnight success story. And they’re loving it. “We were kind of lovable losers last year,” center Eric Wood said, remembering the 0-8 start and 4-12 finish.

“Everyone rooted for us because we tried so hard. But that’s not what it’s about in this business, and that’s not what keeps you around. “And I’m glad we’re winning ball games this year.” They’ve made history during that perfect start, overcoming a 21-3 deficit against Oakland and a 21-0 hole against the Patriots. It’s the first time in NFL history that a team has won backto-back games after trailing by 18 or more points. Today, they return to the place where they first showed that knack for

pulling them out. The Bengals (1-2) surged ahead 31-14 in the first half at Paul Brown Stadium last November, then watched former Cincinnati backup Ryan Fitzpatrick lead a comeback that carried over in confidence. The Bills’ 4931 win showed them that they’re capable of amazing things, if they only believe in themselves a little bit. “It was such a long season last year, starting 0-8 and losing some tough games and trying to find ourselves,” Fitzpatrick said. “I think that was sort of the beginning of trying to find

our identity as an offense and trying to figure out what kind of team we actually were, what kind of team we could be. I think that was probably the beginning for us.” What did they learn about themselves? “You know what? We’re a bunch of misfits,” Fitzpatrick said. Misfits who know how to finish. Buffalo has rallied from 18-point deficits six times in franchise history, and Fitzpatrick has led three of them, including that win in Cincinnati last year. The

Bills have overcome 21point deficits only four times in their history, with Fitzpatrick having a hand in two of them. No surprise in Cincinnati, where he backed up Carson Palmer for two years. “Ryan’s a guy that’s been devoted to the game and has really studied his butt off and always had that attitude of working hard and not just putting in the time, but really applying himself to everything he wanted to be better at,” Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “You couldn’t be happi-

er for a guy. Just a great guy, inside the locker room, outside of it, on the field.” He’s returning to a city where there’s not much to enjoy these days. The Bengals also are coming off a 4-12 season, but have taken a different route since. Instead of keeping things intact, they’ve started over on offense with a young group led by rookie quarterback Andy Dalton. He threw his first two interceptions in a dreary 13-8 loss to San Francisco last Sunday before only 43,363 fans the Bengals’ smallest crowd for a home opener in 30 years.

Edwards runs flawless race at Dover

Carl Edwards (60) races against Brad Keselowski (22) and Reed Sorenson (32) during the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del. Saturday. Edwards won the race.

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Carl Edwards only stumbled on his back flip. His race was as flawless as expected on concrete. Edwards dominated again at Dover International Speedway, winning his seventh race of the season in the Nationwide Series. Edwards completed the season sweep having won the May race at Dover in a wild finish. He coasted on Saturday, leading 179 of the 200 laps at one of his favorite tracks in NASCAR. He’s earned the nickname “Concrete

Carl” because of his run of success on the concrete tracks. “Concrete demands a perfect car and a perfect setup,” Edwards said. All he needs to work on is that perfect landing. Edwards parked the No. 60 Ford on its high, slanted banking. He stumbled backward after his flip and had to catch himself before he took a total tumble. Edwards insisted he would not flip if he wins the Sprint Cup race Sunday. “I was afraid I was going to need another driver for tomorrow,” owner Jack

Roush said. Edwards recovered and made a dash for the stands, where he celebrated with his fans. Edwards even signed an autograph and described the joy he sees in the wide-eyed fans who can’t believe one of the sport’s biggest stars is in their row. “I think other drivers should go up there and have some fun with it,” Edwards said. “It’s not my deal. It’s something really neat that other drivers should try.” Edwards can get another chance Sunday. He qualified fourth earlier in the

day and said his Cup car was better than the No. 60 in the second-tier series. He could surely use a victory to strengthen his push toward a first Cup championship. Edwards is not eligible to win the Nationwide championship. He has toptwo finishes in each of his last four races. Brad Keselowski was second, Clint Bowyer third, and Kasey Kahne fourth. Points leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was fifth. “We just got beat up on pretty fast,” Bowyer said. “Carl was fast. He was the class of the field.”

Troy Christian’s Cassandra Mendez and Troy’s Riley Isely compete at the Miami County Invitational Saturday. ■ CONTINUED FROM 11 of 20:43, while Price was fourth, coming in at 20:47. Alexandra Mahan shortly followed them in 10th place (21:08), Katherine Wilcher finished 11th (21:12) and Peyton Miller placed 14th (21:32) — for a total team score of 42 points. “Their (Troy) fifth girl was back, so we were able to put several girls ahead of their fifth girl,” Kimmel said. “But neither team has an established real frontrunner, and that could hold us back come postseason. We’ve got to get someone up front to lead the pack. We’ve got our fourth and fifth girls coming along, but we’ve got to get our top two girls to lead the pack. Our top two need to get down under the 20s for us to have a chance to get back to the state meet, and they are about 30 seconds off that right now. “But I’m happy with the way we ran. That’s three in a row now for our girls and boys (winning the Miami County Invitational), so that’s a pretty great accomplishment.” The second-place Trojans totaled 54 points to edge out Covington, which tallied 69 points. Troy’s first four runners were dead even with Tipp, but it was the inconsistency at the back of the pack that led to their demise. Troy’s first four in all were below the 21-minute mark, with Caitlyn McMinn placing fifth (20:48), followed by a tightknit pack led by Natalie Snyder in seventh (20:57), Cristina Dennison in eighth (20:59) and KatieGrace Sawka — who was the Trojans’ first runner last week at the Troy Invitational — in ninth (20:59). Megan Falknor was the fifth girl in for Troy with a 25th-place finish (22:19). “Our top four girls ran lights out,” Alexander said. “We have big gap between our fourth and fifth runners, and the girls will need to close that up if we want to win the GWOC (Greater Western Ohio Conference) North and get out of district and qualify for regional. But we have a few weeks to work on that, and I feel pretty confident that these girls will step up for the challenge.” The Buccs were led by Tara Snipes, who churned in another solid performance, finishing sixth in a time of 20:50. Heidi Cron placed 12th (21:13), while Jessie Shilt was 13th (21:14), Heidi Snipes came

Milton-Union’s Michaela Litton finished second at the Miami County Invitational Saturday at the Lowry Complex. in 18th (21:59) and Hannah Retz was Covington’s fifth runner in at 20th (22:04). The individual champion was Piqua’s Kaele Snapp, who had a comfortable lead for most of the race and went on to finish well ahead of the field in a time of 20:01 — that’s an average mile time of 6:28. Snapp’s time was 20 seconds better than the second-place finisher from Milton-Union, Michaela Litton (20:21). When asked if she expected to win, Snapp did not hesitate at all, giving a response that any good runner would say. “Yeah, I did (expect to win),” Snapp said. “That’s Tippecanoe’s Brinna Price and Troy’s Caitlyn McMinn how you want to approach were fourth and fifth, respectively, at the Miami County every race.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Yovani Gallardo emerged from the shadows, outpitching Arizona ace Ian Kennedy as the Milwaukee Brewers kept winning at Miller Park, beating the Diamondbacks 4-1 in their NL division series opener on Saturday. Prince Fielder chased Kennedy with a two-out, two-run homer in the seventh inning, helping erase the stigma that the big slugger’s playoffs would be anything like 2008, when he went 1 for 14. Same, too, with Gallardo. The right-hander retired 14 of 15 during one stretch, perhaps helped by how the shadows cut across the infield. With an early start time, the sun peeked through the retractable roof all afternoon, creating a crazy, changing pattern. Gallardo gave up one run and four hits over eight innings and matched a postseason franchise record with nine strikeouts. Gallardo was only nicked by Ryan Roberts’ home run in the eighth, and won in his first postseason start since a Game 1 loss in the 2008 NLDS to Philadelphia. An All-Star in 2010, he went 17-10 this season, yet is rarely mentioned among the elite pitchers in the game. He’s even overshadowed so to speak on his own staff by 2009 AL Cy Young winner Zack Greinke. Game 2 is Sunday. Greinke will start for Milwaukee against Daniel Hudson. Jerry Hairston Jr., playing in place of starter Casey McGehee, put the Brewers ahead for good in the fourth with a sacrifice fly in the fourth set up by Fielder’s double. Ryan Braun, who fell just short of the NL batting title, contributed three hits. The All-Star left fielder also threw out a runner at the plate in the first inning as Milwaukee’s shaky defense was suddenly solid.

John Axford pitched a perfect ninth for his first save after converting his last 43 in a row in the regular season. The Brewers started 1-0 at Miller Park after winning a majorleague best 57 times at home during their run to the NL Central title. Gallardo was at his best over his final three starts and reached more than 200 strikeouts for the second straight season. He never made a mark in the postseason in 2008 because he need surgery and missed almost five months after tearing a ligament in his right knee. This performance changes that. Gallardo got out of a first-inning jam thanks to Braun’s throw, then cruised until Willie Bloomquist singled in the sixth. Hairston ended that inning when he scooped up a weak grounder to third base by Justin Upton and threw him out as he tried sliding into first. Phillies 11, Cardinals 6 PHILADELPHIA — Ryan Howard took a mighty cut, dropped his bat and admired the shot. The big slugger didn’t go down looking in a clutch spot this time, Roy Halladay overcame a shaky start and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 116 Saturday night in the opener of their NL division series. • American League Rangers 8, Rays 6 ARLINGTON, Texas — Mike Napoli had a tying two-run single before Tampa Bay starter James Shields threw two wild pitches to the same batter, and the Texas Rangers went on to an 8-6 victory over the Rays in Game 2 of the AL division series Saturday night. After Napoli’s two-run single tied it at 3, one of the wild pitches by Shields was a strikeout pitch that sent home the tiebreaking run in a five-run outburst in the fourth inning that put Texas ahead to stay.

Buckeyes ■ CONTINUED FROM 11 posting nine sacks and snuffing the Buckeyes’ ground attack, permitting just 35 yards on 39 attempts. So disappointed was a partisan crowd of 105,306 that from time to time boos cascaded down on the punchless offense. “Am I surprised (by the boos)?” repeated Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio, the Buckeyes’ defensive coordinator from 2001-3. “I used to work here. I’m just saying …” When the Spartans defense wasn’t making plays, Ohio State was doing what it could to help them. The Buckeyes (3-2, 0-1), behind true freshman quarterback Braxton Miller,

stumbled all day on offense. Joe Bauserman led Ohio State to its only score, a 34yard pass to Evan Spencer with 10 seconds left. The Spartans then recovered the onside kick. Fickell said after the game that he might just open up the quarterback job to the four contenders also including Kenny Guiton and Taylor Graham who had fought for it during spring and preseason practices. At another point he said Miller would remain his starter. One thing he was not confused about was went wrong for Miller. “Things were happening fast for him,” Fickell said. “He just maybe didn’t see the field real well. We

thought we were going to have to throw the football, as many people as they were putting in there (on the line to stop the run) and as much heat as they were bringing. We thought our best option was to go with a guy that probably could see the field a little bit better and throw the football a little bit better.” Bauserman came on to hit half of his 14 passes for 87 yards, while Miller was 5 of 10 for 56 yards with an interception. Dan Conroy added a 50yard field goal for the Spartans, far from flawless but thoroughly in command. It was a glorious homecoming for 24 Michigan State players and several

coaches born in Ohio. Dantonio, an Ohio native, was in charge of the defense when Ohio State won the 2002 national championship. The Spartans ended a seven-game losing skid to the Buckeyes. “This was a big program win,” said Dantonio, in his fifth year at MSU. “Ohio State was the only team we hadn’t beaten in the conference.” Ohio State’s erratic and ineffective offense almost made history. The Buckeyes had not been shut out in 183 home games, dating to a 6-0 loss to Wisconsin on Oct. 9, 1982, and hadn’t been shut AP PHOTO out anywhere since a 28-0 Michigan State’s Denicos Allen (28) celebrates his sack loss at Michigan on Nov. 20, against Ohio State’s Joe Bauserman during the fourth quarter Saturday in Columbus. 1993.

No. 18 Arkansas squeaks past No. 14 Texas A&M, 42-38 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Jordan Jefferson scored on his first play back from suspension and cornerback Tyrann Mathieu scored after setting an LSU record for career forced fumbles. Jefferson was reinstated this week after a grand jury reduced his charges in connection with a bar fight to a misdemeanor. Jarrett Lee remained the starter at quarterback. LSU coach Les Miles inserted Jefferson on an early fourth-and-goal, and Jefferson dove over the goal line to give the Tigers (5-0, 2-0 SEC) a 7-0 lead.

Carolina 13 COLUMBIA, S.C. — Barrett Trotter threw a 9yard touchdown pass to Phillip Lutzenkirchen with 1:38 left to lift Auburn.

Boyd, a Virginia native recruited by the Hokies, threw for a touchdown and dissected a top-10 defense for the second week in a row in snapping the Hokies’ 12game ACC winning streak. No. 18 Arkansas 42, No. 14 Texas A&M 38 ARLINGTON, Texas — Tyler Wilson and Jarius Wright shattered school records for passing and receiving, and Broderick Green ran 3 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:41 left as Arkansas gave Texas A&M a preview of what it can expect from the SEC.

This makes two straight weeks the Aggies (2-2) have thrown away a huge halftime lead. They were up by 17 at home against Oklahoma State last week. Wilson was 30 of 51 for 510 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for a 2-point conversion that tied the game at 35. Wright caught 13 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns.

Ash threw a 48-yard TD pass to Mike Davis and a 40-yard touchdown to Shipley, and Josh Turner took a blocked punt back 34 yards to help Texas blow the game open in the second quarter. No. 19 Michigan 58, Minnesota 0 ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for a TD to lead Michigan to its most lopsided win since 2000.

No. 22 WVU 55, Bowling Green 10 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Freshman Dustin Garrison rushed for 291 yards and two touchdowns to lead West Virginia.

Girls on the Run of Dayton was brought to the area by local resident Angela Lewis. “I found the Girls on the Run program when my husband and I ran the New York City Marathon in 2009,” Lewis said. “I fell in love with the program and what it stood for.” The program has a total of 285 girls participating throughout the area at Kyle Elementary, Concord Elementary, Covington, four teams at Miami East, three teams at MiltonUnion, Piqua Girls Club, two teams at Edison (Dayton Neighborhood School), two teams at Emerson (Heritage Academy School,) two teams at Incarnation, Southdale (Kettering), Stingley (Centerville) and Oakwood. The program spans 12 weeks, with meetings twice a week. The girls are taught lessons in selfrespect, physical and emotional well-being and general healthy lifestyles. The program finishes at the end of the 12 weeks with the New Balance Girls on the Run 5K at 10 a.m. Nov. 19 at Welcome Stadium in Dayton. Lewis said the programs help pre-teen and teen girls learn selfrespect and prepare for life as they continue to grow. “I guess there are certain pieces that resonate with me, especially the ones on self confidence and being comfortable with who you are,” Lewis said. “It’s funny because as an adult, I’m learning, too. I look back and see how afraid I was to be myself and it just spirals when you try to be someone else. It takes you down the wrong path and for me to see these girls being excited about being who they are is just wonderful.” Following the lessons, running and other forms of exercise are incorporated into the meetings. “When it comes to the running, we are not out to create a generation of track stars,” Lewis said. “I just want the girls to see the importance of being healthy.” Locally, Girls on the Run has taken off and girls can be seen through-

Miami East first-grade teacher Ashley Demmit said she started the program at East last year and it has attracted more attention since then. “I was at a book signing for Kristin Armstrong and after it I decided to contact Angela to get the program here,” Demmit said. “We started out with 11 girls and it grew to 48 in two days.” She said the school has about the same amount of girls divided within four teams throughout the school. “We have three Girls on the Run groups then a Girls on Track, which is still Girls on the Run, but the curriculum is designed toward teenage girls,” she said. Demmit said she can see a difference in the students who participate in the program throughout the day in the hallways and in class. “You can see it everyday in the hallway in their attitude,” Demmit said. “They are proud of them-

NATURAL WANDERS

It’s absolutely autumn in the month of October October. The month’s name is pumpkin-round on the tongue and synonymous with the season. Or at least what many would consider the best part of autumn. It is certainly the month that encompasses those images most of us conjure up in our mind’s eye when we imagine autumn. Burnished goldenrod meadows and patchwork woodlands with their bright colored leaves. Vees of calling Canada geese cleaving a cerulean sky. Jugs of sweet-tart apple cider, freshpressed, pale-orange, sitting on a rural roadside table. Archedback black cats and glowing jack-o’-lanterns. And if we’re old enough, rows of teepee shocked cornstalks standing tall in a ragged field. October is autumn. The season in essence, and arguably the most photogenic month of the year — at least from a calendar-designer’s perspective. No art director ever has a difficult search when it comes to finding a wealth of eye-catching images for his 10th-month page. Regarding calendars, if we

purple-prose adjectives the old Hollywood copywriters used to regularly work into their pitch. But October is also foggy dawns and the diamond-sparkle of a dewy spider web along the fence. It’s a rural pond gleaming silver with low-hanging mist. A country road where scarlet maples compete with yellow poplars, woodbine flames as it curls up the sagging timberwork of a tumbledown barn, and nearby banks wear the royal purple jewels of New England asters. October days offer this year’s last glimpse of warblers and rubythroats; it’s nights bring the final times we’ll hear the repetitious songs of katydids and crickets. What winds up must always eventually wind down — and the rule is no different for months. October is gala — but it’s also the noisy banquet before the long silence. Does this sound bittersweet? I hope not. That’s not my intention … for I adore October, front to back, the whole kit and caboodle — all 31 delightful days. I only wish it would hang around twice as long. October is autumn absolutely.

“It makes me proud of myself when I cross the finish line,” James said. As she finished a lap around the track this week, James said she is nervous about the 5K at

that I’m not going to be the only one I know running.” Third-grade student Lauren Wright agreed with her fellow runners and said she couldn’t wait to be part of the program. “I like to run,” Wright said. “It teaches us to be healthy and express your feelings and show other people that with kindness and happiness.” Girls on the Run is open to anyone that wants to enroll. The fee is $150 for 12 weeks and the groups meet twice a week. The fee includes all the curriculum covered over the 12 weeks, running shoes, a program shirt and the 5K shirt. While there is a fee, no student is turned away because of the inability to pay and there are scholarships available.

TROY — The Overfield Early Childhood Program is hosting its 10th annual Fall Festival for Young Children from noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 8 on the school grounds. The event will feature games and prizes, crafts at the “Overfield Workshop,” pony rides and pumpkin decorating. Tractor-pulled hayrides also will return. Live music will be provided by renowned musician Jim McCutcheon and a singalong with Overfield teacher Carla Briggs, whose voice and guitar playing have thrilled students for years. Come hungry and visit the Overfield Cafe, where for one day only, some of the area’s most popular local eateries will offer lunch, snacks and treats for children and adults. An all-day raffle also will be available offering a variety of prizes.

of day, the slant of light, the tilt and spin as our blue-green home planet follows its ancient elliptical path around the sun. Think of it as a sort of primordial cognizance — a seasonal GPS, in which our awareness is calibrated so that any experience of temperature is interwoven into the matrix of time as we make our way along the round of another year. Dawn arrives later, twilight comes sooner. Nights lengthen. By the time October ends, autumn will have given up nearly one and three-quarters hours of daylight. Still, though our days grow ever shorter, October seems to expand them by suffusing each and every minute with a wealth of delights and wonders; a seasonal feast for the senses. As one friend who’s quite theatrically minded recently put it in his best movie-preview voice: “October is nature’s dramatic extravaganza, a flamboyant pageant — epic, powerful, passionate, intoxicating!” “A swashbuckling month if ever there was one!” I agreed, getting into the mood.

PARENTING

Sunday, October 2, 2011

Some parents try early potty training PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) — Cen Campbell travels unusually light for a mom with a young child. No wet wipes. No changing pad. No disposable diapers. The extra baggage isn’t necessary because when Campbell’s toddler Jude needs to go to the bathroom, she brings him to the toilet. They’ve been doing this with mixed success since he was just 12 days old. “I wouldn’t want to sit in a wet diaper, so why would I make my child do it?” said Campbell. In the U.S., most new parents would count diapers among the “can’t live without” items for bringing up baby. But some are rejecting that conventional wisdom and helping their children use the toilet from the first few weeks and months of life. Fans of infant potty training, also called elimination communication or natural infant hygiene, say it’s better for the environment, more economical and a unique way to bond with their child. Most babies brought up this way, including Jude, wear diapers usually cloth as back up, but get away with using many fewer than babies who are not accustomed to using a potty or toilet from a very young age. “It seemed to make more sense, especially when I

This June 30 photo shows Cen Campbell, second from left, with her son Jude Chisan, 1, left, and Serena Weingrod, right, with her daughter, Adah, 2, at Blossom Birth in Palo Alto, Calif. In the U.S., most new parents would count diapers among the “can’t live without” items for bringing up baby. But some are rejecting that conventional wisdom and helping their children use the toilet from the first few weeks and months of life. started to notice there were patterns,” said Campbell, a volunteer librarian at Blossom Birth, a parent resource center in Palo Alto. “If you know when they’re going to go, why not hold them over the potty?” While the idea sounds novel, it goes back centuries and spans cultures,

said Laurie Boucke, author of “Infant Potty Training,” which explains the concept and how to do it. “It’s been used since the beginning of time very successfully in many cultures including in India, Africa, China and even here,” Boucke said. The theory is that

babies have a desire to be clean, are aware of their bodily functions and can learn to communicate their needs, just as they communicate when they’re hungry and tired. Relying on diapers, proponents say, trains babies to ignore their natural instinct. “We bathe the baby, we

feed the baby, we do all these other things and you wonder, why not do this?” Boucke said. “If you start really little, they learn from association really quickly.” The practice, ideally started before a baby is 6 old, involves months observing an infant’s cues that he’s ready to go to the bathroom, such as grunts, teary eyes or flushed cheeks, then bringing him to a toilet. Caregivers sometimes make a hissing sound while holding the child over the bowl, or time visits to the toilet when the baby is likely to need to eliminate, such as before and after nursing and before and after naps. The purpose of all this “is to help babies maintain natural awareness of their bodies, and to communicate with them,” said Lisa Baker, a spokeswoman for a DiaperFreeBaby.org, website that connects similarly-minded parents around the world. Baker, of Atlanta, became interested in elimination communication for ecological reasons, figuring she could save water by not washing as many cloth diapers and landfill space by avoiding disposables. She was surprised to find that she also saved money, and ended up feeling uniquely bonded to her

daughter Anastasia, who was taken to the toilet beginning at two weeks old and was in underwear by 12 months old. “It connects you on a whole other level. It’s like you’re reading your baby’s mind. It’s just a thrill to feel that connection,” she said. There is no age when toilet training is supposed to start. The American Academy of Pediatrics says many children show “signs of readiness” around their second birthday. On its website, the organization says most children don’t have complete daytime control over their elimination until 3 or 4 years old. Parents who do it say the key is to not get stressed out about it. Serena and Isaac Weingrod, who live in Mountain View, said they decided to try elimination communication when their daughter Adah was 2 months old because it seemed easier and cleaner than the cloth diapers they had been using. But they weren’t overly ambitious. “Our goal wasn’t to potty train early,” Serena Weingrod said. “We just kind of looked at it like every time we got her to the toilet, it was one less diaper to change.” Now 2 years old, Adah is fully potty trained.

Loving moms reduce poverty’s health risks, study finds BY SALLY KALSON Pittsburgh Post-Gazette A new study has found that children raised in poverty were less likely to develop certain chronic diseases in adulthood if they had loving, attentive mothers from a young age. Disadvantaged children grow up with stresses that can hurt their physical development and make them vulnerable to infection and disease for the rest of

their lives. In adulthood, this often leads to metabolic syndrome — high blood pressure, impaired regulation of blood sugar and fats, fat around the waist — that are precursors to diabetes, heart disease and other chronic conditions. Yet a significant minority of poor children avoids these negative outcomes as adults, and a team of researchers led by psychologist Gregory Miller at the University of British Columbia wanted to

know why. They looked at two common explanations, upward mobility and early parental nurturing. Their findings, to be published in next month’s issue of the journal Psychological Science, showed that moving up the economic ladder in adulthood did not make these particular health problems less likely. What did improve the odds for avoiding metabolic syndrome, however, was a mother who paid close

attention to her children’s well-being when they were small, who was affectionate, caring and had time for them. “What’s new here is that this is all happening in the context of physical health problems that are so far away in time from the experience of childhood poverty and maternal warmth,” said Miller. The study analyzed data from 1,215 adults (mean age 46) who participated in a

1995-96 nationwide study called Midlife in the United States. Ten years later, more than 1,200 of them returned for physical exams and a questionnaire on parental nurturing. Their socioeconomic status was gauged based on their parents’ education. Controlling for current age, sex, race and income, researchers found that the better off the child’s family, the better the adult’s health.

When neither parent in the household had a high school diploma, participants were 1.4 times as likely to have metabolic syndrome as those raised by two college graduates. The exceptions were those with nurturing mothers. If youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds “had a high level of nurturing, particularly from the mother, it can offset most of that risk,” Miller said.

RIGHT: Universal Orlando Resort’s Halloween Horror Nights 21 at Universal Studios Florida, Orlando, Fla., runs in September and October and takes over the entire park.

Prepare to be

scared

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Universal Orlando’s first foray into Halloween Horror Nights 21 years ago involved one weekend, a single haunted house tucked away in the back of the park by the “Jaws” ride and some people in store-bought masks jumping out of dark corners. What was largely an experiment that first year has evolved into a monster draw for the Orlando theme park. Once the creative types figured out that people loved having the wits scared out of them and would pay for the privilege, the challenge was on to create something bigger and better every year. This time the event runs 25 nights in September and October and takes over the entire park, with eight themed haunted houses and mazes, two live shows, sophisticated makeup, film-quality set decor, gallons of fake blood and as many as 1,000 “scareacters” involved. Planning and production takes place year-round now, and the event draws hundreds of thousands of people who pay $42 or more to attend. “I think it all has to with escape,” says Patrick Braillard, a production show director and one of the gleefully demented minds behind the event. “People love to be transported, they love to be taken somewhere they’re not familiar with. So our job is to create eight immersive environments. When they walk in, they are completely somewhere else.” The concept is basically the same as in the cheesy neighborhood haunted houses that spring up every year to raise money for charity: costumed characters jumping out of dark, creepy surroundings to make unsuspecting patrons scream. But for a generation raised on computerized special-effects, slasher movies, video games and the Internet, Universal and other theme parks that get into the scare business every October have had to step up their game. And that means realism. The Universal haunted houses and mazes are on sophisticated studio soundstages and all have a theme and eerie story attached. Attention to detail and sense of place is stunning. In one, visitors walk through a misty haunted cemetery as corpses emerge from disturbed graves and crypts. In another, souls that perished at sea on Christopher Columbus’ fourth ship forever haunt a Spanish fort. (The gallows setting in that one alone could induce nightmares for those who are prone.) Another has an obligatory tie-in to a Universal movie, in this case “The Thing,” which comes out in mid-October. A Lady Luck gambling theme for the 21st year of the event —get it?— is a common thread throughout. Horrible-looking zombies and other ghouls lurk

in “scare zones” throughout the park. This is definitely not for younger kids and the faint of heart. “You’ve got moments of breathing room, like the bathrooms and any food lines that you might go into, but pretty much you’re ours as soon as you hit the gate,” Braillard says. A note to Harry Potter fans: Universal Orlando consists of two parks. Halloween Horror Nights takes place at Universal Studios Florida, not at its sister park, Islands of Adventure, where The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located. Universal Studios Hollywood stages its own Halloween Horror Nights, with original mazes based on ’70s shock rocker Alice Cooper’s “Welcome to My Nightmare” theme, Rob Zombie’s “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Wolfman.” Also new this year is a maze built around “La Llorona,” the fearful story of melancholy and murder that has terrified Mexican and Latin American children for generations.

At Busch Gardens in Tampa, the annual HowlO-Scream event will feature “The Dark Side of the Gardens” for 17 nights, with seven haunted houses and mazes, plus the streets will be crawling with hideous zombies. Creative director Scott Swenson says twice as many actors are hired just to haunt the streets inside the park now than were involved in the entire event when it started 12 years ago. That first year, there were three haunted houses, a few costumed monsters roaming around and a couple shows. Now Busch Gardens hires an extra 1,000 people and artists spend hours creating detailed silicone prosthetics and masks for the characters. Swenson says he thinks people come to the park to be scared for the same

thrill they might get from extreme sports. “It’s an adrenaline rush that if you let your imagination go is just as real as being terrified anywhere else,” he says. “But deep inside, you know you’re still going to be safe. You can get close to the edge.” For families that want some Halloween fun that doesn’t involve uncomfort-

able surroundings, gore and body parts, Walt Disney has Mickey’s NotSo-Scary-Halloween Party. The costumed little ones can collect trick-or-treat candy from throughout the Magic Kingdom and see the Boo-To-You parade that includes stars of the famous Haunted Mansion attraction. Disney caps it off with a Happy

HalloWishes fireworks show. The SeaWorld parks in Orlando, San Antonio and San Diego also are offering family friendly Halloween events with undersea themes. Kids can trick-ortreat throughout the parks and check out the themed shows, including Sesame Street’s “Countdown to Halloween Show.”

Shannon tremendous in tense ‘Take Shelter’ dreams, he’s clutching Hannah to his chest as the living room furniture levitates, then comes crashing back down to the floor. Even though we know these are dreams and we know that he’ll wake from them they’re rendered so vividly, they shake us up as viewers, too. Curtis is reluctant to share what’s troubling him with his wife, even though she clearly recognizes that something is wrong and wants to help. Chastain takes what could have been a quiet, forgettable supporting role and brings the character to life with naturalism and grace. She also shows her versatility once again this year, following extremely different roles in “The Tree of Life,” ”The Help” and “The Debt.” Eventually Curtis realizes that something is coming — a massive storm, the apocalypse, it’s hard to name exactly and devotes all his time, money and energy to fortifying the family’s tornado shelter. In the dark of night, with the shelter doors flung open to allow bright orange light to burst from the ground, it looks like the portal to hell. One by one, he makes decisions

that confuse and disappoint everyone around him, even though he’s doing so in the name of their protection. Sedatives don’t help him; neither do visits to a counselor. There’s just a single-minded focus that, in time, alienates those he loves most. But there’s something else: a history of paranoid schizophrenia in the family, which afflicted his mother in her early 30s and perhaps is taking hold of him at the same age, too. Kathy Baker is heartbreaking in just a single, delicate scene with Shannon; what they don’t say spells out so much about who this man has become. And so we’re back to wondering: What’s real and what’s in Curtis’ mind? The prevailing metaphor may seem overly simplistic or heavy-handed — ooh, there’s a storm abrewin’, what could it mean? but the resulting mood of paranoia is unshakable. “Take Shelter,” a Sony Pictures Classics release, is rated R for some language. Running time: 120 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four.

Imposing and intense, Shannon stands out play yet of Shannon: unadorned and still powerfully intense. “I was really floored by his power and stillness,” says Jessica Chastain, who plays his wife in the film. “He has this great source of energy, but the stillness contains this great power and intense emotion.” Shannon grew up primarily in Lexington, Kentucky. His parents divorced when he was very young, so he spent time between Lexington (where his mother lived) and Chicago, Illinois, (where his father lived). He eventually moved to Chicago full-time and fell into the city’s flourishing theater world. He particularly connected with thennascent playwright Tracy Letts, starring in his “Killer Joe” and “Bug,” in which he played a paranoid Gulf War veteran. Acting appealed to him for its freedom to behave in ways that would be considered inappropriate offstage. “It wasn’t an attention thing,” he says. “I never really gave a crap. I never really cared if people clapped or not. It’s a way to travel. It’s a form of

traveling in another reality or circumstance.” When he moved to Los Angeles to pursue film work, he found small roles in “Groundhog Day,” ”Jesus’ Son,” ”Vanilla Sky,” ”8 Mile” and a number of Jerry Bruckheimer films (“Pearl Harbor,” ”Bad Boys II,” ”Kangaroo Jack”). Nichols was among the first to recognize Shannon’s ability. Having seen footage of him at the writers’ workshop Sundance Labs, he was hit by a lightning bolt: “This guy needs to be in every movie I make,” he said to himself. Nichols cast him in his low-budget debut, 2007’s “Shotgun Stories,” a kind of tale of slacker revenge. Having now twice directed him, Nichols noted he never once saw Shannon with a script in hand, but he always knew it backward and forward. “His goal is to put something honest up on screen,” says Nichols. “It’s funny: Though we don’t talk about it beforehand or rehearse, as soon as I yell ‘cut’ and move on, that’s when the conversation starts. ‘How’d it go? How’d it do?’” 2223107

BOOK REVIEW

CROSSWORD

‘Feast Day’ is superbly written

ACROSS

BY BRUCE DESILVA AP Book Reviewer “Feast Day of Fools” (Simon & Schuster), by James Lee Burke: James Lee Burke’s 30 superbly written mysteries and Westerns have always been allegorical, illuminating the grandest of themes. Over the years, he has written about racism, neocolonialism, the rape of the environment, the hijacking of Christianity by hateful bigots and the futility of war. He has written about manipulative political and business figures, and about the quest for individual and national redemption. He has also explored the nature of evil. Its causes, he believes, aren’t sociological, but rather, as he wrote in 2005’s “Crusaders Cross,” evil men who “make a conscious choice to erase God’s thumbprint from their souls.” And in all of Burke’s works, the past is never past. It inhabits the landscape, haunting both individuals and the soul of the nation. In “Feast Day of Fools,” Burke pulls all of his themes together in a master work that comprises his unified theory of America at the beginning of the 21st century. It’s not a pretty picture. The title refers to a medieval custom in which the laity of the Roman Catholic Church were allowed to behave as badly as they wanted for a few days before receiving collective absolution. Clearly, Burke believes our own “feast day” has been going on a lot longer than that, with no end or absolution in sight. He sets his story in the great desert of the Tex-Mex border, but he asks readers to see it as it has existed through the ages, from its origin as a shallow inland sea teeming with prehistoric reptilian monsters to the present, in which xenophobic Anglos take potshots at desperately poor Mexicans who cross the border in search of a better life. The hero of the story is Hackberry Holland, who was introduced by Burke in a short story about the Korean War and then in 1971’s “Lay Down My Sword and Shield.” Burke brought Holland back as the aged sheriff of a small Texas town in 2009’s “Rain Gods.” Now, “Feast Day of Fools” finds the 70-some-

As the story opens, a young engineer who helped design the Predator drone is on the run in the Texas desert. He is being hunted for the secrets he carries in his head. The FBI wants him. So does the greedy millionaire son of a U.S. senator. And a former mercenary named Krill, whose children were gunned down by an American gunship during a secret war in Central America. And Russian mobsters. And Mexican drug dealers. And Preacher Jack Collins, the homicidal maniac introduced in “Rain Gods.” Some of them hope to profit by selling the young man to alQaida. The hunters are willing, and most of them downright eager, to kill and torture to get what they want. Soon, the bodies start piling up in Holland’s rural county. As Burke’s complex plot unfolds, the author explores the tortured psyches of both the villains and Holland himself, revealing some surprising connections. The characters including Preacher Jack, Holland and his deputy and love interest Pam Tibbs are superbly drawn. The portrait of Preacher Jack, a specter who gleefully mows down people with his Thompson submachine gun with the certainty that God is on his side, is particularly chilling. And as always in a Burke novel, the landscape is vividly described in passages so poetic they could be broken into lines of verse.

LOCAL PROFESSIONALS Keep your pet from frowning with proper prevention Molly Simonis Assistant Director of Public Relations

Does your dog or cat have unbearably bad breath? Maybe your pet has become a little sluggish? Or started to become a picky eater? Or maybe your pet is not showing any signs of discomfort but could be building up harmful bacteria. All these things can have one thing in common for your dog or cat: dental disease. Sometimes as pet owners it is hard to tell if your animal is not feeling well. They are very good at hiding symptoms, especially since they cannot tell us if they aren’t feeling 100%. Dental cleanings can sometimes be an easy fix to your pets well-being. An annual check-up or semi-annual dental exam can help determine what dental upkeep may be necessary for your dog or cat. According to troyanimalhospital.com/blog, periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most commonly diag-

nosed diseases in adult dogs and cats. It is caused by buildup of tartar on the pets teeth that extends under the gum line. This can then allow bacteria to fester in the root of the tooth. And all of this can lead to your pet needing some teeth removed. Periodontal disease, being a constant source of bacteria, could also cause heart, kidney or liver problems if a pets dental health is not monitored regularly. PREVENTION IS KEY! There are a number of things that can be done regularly to keep your pets teeth and gums more healthy. A simple rawhide chip can help control tartar in their mouths. Another option is to add a take-home dental remedy to your pets water which helps to fight tartar. You can also brush your dog or cats teeth on a regular basis even though this option always seems easier said than done. But there are now more ways than ever help your pet

It can be easy to provide upkeep for your pets mouth with the right tools and tricks that today’s veterinarian can help provide you. Even if your dog or cat is elderly and aging, a dental cleaning will leave them with a livelier and perkier attitude.

MORTGAGE WATCH

Rates fall again WASHINGTON (AP) — Fixed mortgage rates have fallen to historic new lows for a fourth straight week and are likely to fall further. The average on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.01 percent this week, Freddie Mac said Thursday. That’s the lowest rate since the mortgage buyer began keeping records in 1971. The last time long-term rates were lower was in 1951, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years. The average on a 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, ticked down to 3.28 percent. Economists say that’s the lowest rate ever for the loan. Rates on mortgages could fall further after the Federal Reserve announced last week that it would take further action to try to lower long-term rates. Still, low rates have so far done little to boost home sales or refinancing. Many would-be buyers or homeowners don’t have enough cash or home equity to get a new loan.

Learn about Oriental rugs before investing in one By HGTV

backs of these rugs are usually sprayed or painted with adhesives to secure the pile yarn. These rugs cannot be truly called Oriental rugs. • Hand-knotted: In a hand-knotted rug, a weaver ties a knot in each yarn. Each knot of yarn is tied securely around two or three strands of warp yarn, which is the vertical yarn set up initially on the loom as the basis for the rug that will be woven upon it. Shearing: After the rug is woven, overall shearing of the pile is done by hand, to an even depth or to varia-

tions of textural depth specified by the designer. Shapes within the overall design are usually incised, cut around carefully by hand to create dimension and clarity of design. Knot count: This term refers to “knots per square inch.” The more detailed and complex the design, and the finer/thinner the wool, the more knots are required for clarity of color and design. High-quality rugs usually range from 50 to 100 knots per inch. • Where was the rug made? You’ve heard of a Persian rug or a Chinese rug or a Tibetan rug, all of

which fall into the Oriental rug category, which covers rugs from China to Vietnam, Turkey to Tibet, and Iran to India. The finest Tibetan rugs are hand-knotted in Nepal and India. • What is it made of? Many Oriental rugs are made from wool and/or silk. As the basis and primary material, wool is the most resilient, comfortable and durable material to use in these rugs. To add variations of color, texture and design, silk is often used as a highlight accent.
