Horses cause overnight traffic woes near Covington Staff reports

COVINGTON — Horses that escaped from a farm on Sugar Grove Road, south of Covington, wreaked havoc around the community early Friday morning, causing several traffic crashes that ended with six animals dead. Reports of collisions between cars and horses began around 3:30 a.m. with crashes on State Route 41 near east of Covington claiming the lives of three of the horses. Three more died on U.S. Route 36 at the west edge of the village. Miami County sheriff’s deputies, motorists and volunteers rounded up the remaining

horses, several of which were injured, over the next several hours. A total of 40 horses, boarded by the Judson Thompson family on Sugar Grove Road, reportedly escaped. The search was hampered by darkness. All animals were captured or accounted for by 9 a.m. The Ohio Department of Transportation and local refuse companies removed the carcasses from roadways shortly after daybreak. Deputies are investigating how the animals managed to escape. None of the motorists involved in the crashes sustained serious injury.

Portion of former hospital meets wrecking ball

A pair of track hoes work to demolish a portion of the former Dettmer Hospital on the UVMC campus Tuesday afternoon.

Staff Writer

TROY — Once considered a state-of-the-art medical facility for its time, a long-standing hospital on the grounds of the Upper Valley Medical Center campus, 3130 N. County Road 25-A, Troy, was partially demolished this week. The partial demolition of the former Dettmer Hospital facility began at the start of the week on the south end of the structure and includes portions deemed “too outdated for further

available locations within Upper Valley Medical Center properties,” Peterson said. The Dettmer building was originally constructed 1952 and underwent nine expansions or renovations through 1991. “The majority of the facility was not built to modern standards for environmental nor healthcare efficiencies,” Peterson said. “As a result, it has become difficult to service and maintain over time.” Peterson said one benefit the partial demolition will serve is a reduc-

tion in utilities as well as repair and maintenance costs incurred. Acute care hospital services, like the ones provided by Dettmer, were discontinued in the 1980s, and since that time the building was used primarily for nonacute care services and office space. The demolition area being cleared will be utilized as green space in the future and grass, along with existing trees, will offer “a parklike environment.” “There are many mature trees surround-

ing the Dettmer building and great care is being taken to retain as many of these as possible,” Peterson explained. “At this time there are no further plans for development on the site other than to enhance the already pleasant surroundings of the Upper Valley Medical Center campus.” The remaining northern portion of the Dettmer structure will continue to house the services of UVMC pastoral care, Lifeline, and EMS education and project search.

BR ADFORD — Bradford City Council met at 7 p.m., Thursday evening. Three community members were in attendance as well as all six council members, village administrator Rick Looker and village treasurer Brenda Selanders. As a last resort, a Bradford resident stood before the council with a complaint of a neighbor who has seven dogs. He stated that these dogs bark at all hours of the day and into the night. There has been confrontations among neighbors and he said that he has called the Sherriff many times and yet nothing has been done. It was said that others have also made several calls to the sheriff’s office about these same animals. Mayor Dallas Weldy said he was very surprised that the sheriff’s have not taken care of this situation. He said that he would try his best to see why nothing has been done. Village ordinance 505.09 Barking or Howling Dogs states: (a) No person shall keep or harbor any dog within the Municipality which, by frequent and habitual barking, howling or yelping, creates unreasonably loud and disturbing noises of such a character, intensity and duration as to disturb the peace, quiet and good order of the Municipality. Any person who shall allow any dog habitually to remain, be lodged or fed within any dwelling, building, yard or enclosure, which he occupies or owns, shall be considered as harboring such dog. (b) Whoever violates this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor. Clerk treasurer Brenda Selanders reported that the village is currently being audited for 2012 and 2013. Auditors have been here for a month and will return in January to complete 2013. She also let council members know that it is time for the renewal of health insurance. If anyone has questions she encouraged them to let her know and she would look into it. Weldy suggested sending a tentative letter to the Miami County Health District asking them if they would consider taking over the entire See BRADFORD | Page 2

The partial demolition project, which is being performed in several phases, is expected to be completed by the end of the year, said Gail Peterson, of the UVMC communications and marketing department. Peterson said the project will not disrupt any services offered at the hospital campus. “Great care has been taken to be certain that any services affected were relocated to other

East hopes to procure a grant to purchase five propane buses for the district Colin Foster

Civitas Media

CASSTOWN — The Miami East Local School District will find out at the beginning of December if it has received a grant from the Ohio Department of Education’s new Straight A Fund to purchase five new propane buses. Lisa Fahncke, district treasurer, spearheaded the Straight A Fund grant

submission last week, which totals more than $500,000 for the purchase of five new buses — something the Miami East School District has long needed to upgrade, but hadn’t been able to get the finances for. This marks the third time the Miami East district has applied for a grant to purchase buses in the last year. Miami East tried to get a grant through the Clean Ohio Fund in the fall of 2012

and in the spring of 2013, but the district was denied. If Miami East gets the Straight A Fund grant, it would allow the district to save cost on fuel. Superintendent Dr. Todd Rappold said the average cost for diesel fuel runs between $3-3.40 a gallon, while the cost is roughly $1 for a gallon of propane. “We’re just excited

Health exchanges slow to attract young, healthy Michael R. Blood Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fears that health insurance exchanges wouldn’t attract the young, healthy people needed to make them financially viable are being heightened by the early results of signups in several states. If it becomes a trend, that could lead to increases in insurance premiums and deductibles next year. Along with the paltry enrollment numbers released this week, officials in a handful of states said those who had managed to sign up were generally older people with medical problems — those with the greatest incentives to get coverage. It’s unclear whether that will persist. Young, healthy people may be more inclined to procrastinate, especially given doubts about the law’s technically flawed online signup system. They have until Dec. 15 to sign up if they want to be covered on Jan. 1. Insurers have warned that they need a wide range of people signing up for coverage because premiums paid by adults in the younger and healthier group, between 18 and 35, are needed to offset the cost of carrying older and sicker customers who typically generate far more in medical bills than they contribute in premiums. The first set of enrollment data revealed that 106,000 people signed up for coverage nationwide, far short of the 500,000 initial sign-ups the Obama administration had expected. In states where officials discussed more detailed information, it also became apparent that the people who flocked to the exchanges after they opened Oct. 1 were those who were desperate for coverage. In California, the state with the largest uninsured population, most of those who applied were older people with health problems, according to a state health care official. In Kentucky, nearly 3 of 4 enrollees were over 35. In Ohio, groups helping with enrollment described many of those coming to them as older residents who lost their jobs and health coverage during the recession.

He coached baseball and football, and has been an avid and spectacular golfer for most of his life. Eddie’s heart was his greatest asset. The memory of his compassion, humor, and kindness will remain in the hearts of the many who loved him dearly. A funeral service to honor his life will be conducted at 7 p.m. Wednesday, at the Jamieson & Yannucci Funeral Home with the Rev. Dr. Keith Gebhart officiating. Visitation will be from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to the Bethany Center, P.O. Box 224, Piqua, OH 45356; or the charity of the donor’s choice.

“They have been putting off treatment for a long time, just praying they live until they turn 65 and qualify for Medicare,” said Lisa HamlerFugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, which received federal grant money to help people establish coverage. That people with serious health conditions would be the first to take advantage of the Affordable Care Act was expected. But that direction must shift. In general, someone in his 60s uses $6 in health care services for every $1 tallied by someone in his 20s, said Nicole Kasabian Evans of the California Association of Health Plans. That makes younger adults a coveted group on industry balance sheets. If those signing up trend to the elderly and sickly “your insurance is going to cost more and that will discourage those younger people from coming in,” warned Lisa Folberg, a vice president with the California Medical Association. Faced with steep prices, younger people could opt to pay a government fine rather than purchase coverage. The potential for rising monthly premiums and higher policy deductibles is just one deterrent to convincing young people to sign up for coverage on the exchanges. The technological problems that have plagued the federal exchange, which is running in 36 states, and many state-run online marketplaces are slowing enrollment. And scattered reports of data breaches have the potential to scare off even more people. Efforts to attract adults younger than 35, often referred to as “young invincibles,” include multimillion dollar advertising campaigns, which have launched in several states. In California, Peter Lee, director of the state-run health exchange, said his state’s outreach effort taps social media, radio and TV ads, and events at churches, community centers and other venues. To emphasize the point, Covered California included a 27-year-old man who had signed up for coverage during its news conference earlier this

week. Such an approach aims to counter the current trend in the state. Lee described October enrollees in California as “older people or people who have health conditions.” “These are people that have been waiting a long time to get covered,” he said. In Colorado, an aggressive campaign from allies of the state-run exchange includes provocative ads. One targeting women combines the promise of free birth control pills with the notion of casual sex. Another ad shows women with a contraption made of alcohol shot glasses glued to an old snow ski. “Saving money on flu shots leaves us more money for fun shots,” the ad reads. The day the health exchange launched, male and female models wearing nothing but underwear and “Get Covered” signs passed out fliers on a downtown Denver street. It’s not clear whether the campaign is working. Colorado’s exchange has yet to release a demographic breakdown of the 3,700 people who selected an individual policy last month. “We are making an extra push to reach young adults, and we do expect they’re going to take a lot of encouraging because they tend to wait until the last minute,” said Myung Kim, spokeswoman for Colorado’s exchange. If such efforts fail and insurance companies end up with too many sick or expensive customers, they might need to increase premiums or eventually leave markets to avoid taking heavy financial losses. “It’s going to be very messy for the next couple of years, until we figure out who is buying insurance,” said Glenn Melnick, director of the Center for Health Financing, Policy and Management at the University of Southern California. “There are a lot of pieces of this that are just black boxes right now.” Aetna Chairman and chief executive Mark Bertolini said last month that it was “incredibly important” to get the exchange websites running properly because “the younger, healthier people aren’t going to give them more than one shot.”

to repeal last months motion to put in the handicap spot. It was also noted that the area that was requested wasn’t even a parking spot. Motion was passed and carried. Rick Looker put in a request to spend $1,000 to replace garland and some Christmas lights for town decorations. He was disappointed in the LED lights they purchased in the past. It was said that they would last for five years and at least 18 strands of lights have went out. Wirrig wanted to know if they were just going to spend $1,000 on the same sets of lights? Looker said that next year that would need to make a new budget if they wanted to get all new decorations. Favorite offered to take a look at all of the lights and test them to see if what they do have is still working. The control system for the water plant is waiting on a couple controls to finish the project. This system will provide coverage for the entire plant and will be able to notify the village of issues via com-

puters and tablets outside of the plant. Looker said that dirt work should be done by next Wednesday. Heaters and samplers should be installed by the end of next week and they will be 99 percent done. Trenches and clean up on the west side of town should be completed by the end of the week. As far as completion of the streets, asphalt and grass will be done in the Spring. Bid packets will soon be set up for the Stitchter Street Project. Before closing of the meeting, John Lavey thanked the council for having him. He said he enjoyed being on the council for four years and had learned a lot. Unfortunately he will not be at the next meeting due to prior engagements. The other members said they were sad to see him go. Lavey was elected to the school board and would not have enough time to devote to both. Council members told him that he will be missed. The next scheduled city council meeting will be the second Tuesday in December at 7 p.m.

Miami County deputies present safety topic PIQUA — The Miami County Sheriff ’s Department delivered a special presentation for local businesses entitled, “Security and Threat Assessment.” This safety workshop was hosted by the Miami County Safety Council at the Miami Valley Centre Mall. Thirty-six different companies were represented in the audience, most from Miami County, but a few from surrounding counties. Deputy Ben Garbig, Deputy Robert Morando Jr. and Deputy Jamie McGlinch shared in the presentation of the topic. They began with the function of the sheriff’s department, the area they cover, and the kind of accidents and crimes they are called on to investigate. Break-ins and thefts are a concern of many business owners. Morando pointed out that most all thefts are directly related to drugs. He went on to tell of the current trends in our area involving illegal drugs and stated that prescription drugs and heroin are the worst. “Any business can be a target of theft and that is why it is important to analyze your risk,” Morando said. “Establish a team

to devise a plan of defense. Bring in a security consultant to see where you are vulnerable, someone who will examine your facility as from the eyes of an intruder.” He suggested limiting your points of entry to two, if possible, and require that all visitors check-in and out. The use of alarm systems and camera systems are very good, but he also mentioned simple things like making sure your landscaping is trimmed so as not to provide hiding places. Garbig covered having a “Crisis Plan,” the goal of which is to account for the safety of employees and customers. He listed several types of crisis situations that could occur and a company needs to be ready for such as: employee violence, exposure to pathogens, fire, weather, bomb threats, intruders and hostage situations. Garbig offered tips on creating a crisis response plan and what it should include. “Assign someone to write-up the plan and distribute it to employees,” he said. “Make sure you have an evacuation plan and also make sure you have emergency supplies on hand. Finally, confer with law enforcement to

see that your plan complies with local laws and then periodically review it.” McGlinch covered how an employer can best assist law enforcement concerning summons, subpoenas, arrest warrants and investigations. Though these are non-violent in themselves, they could lead to some type of violence, he said. It is important that an employer follows the instructions of the law enforcement officer to best handle each situation. The Miami County Safety Council schedules two safety workshops a year on topics of interest to manufacturers, businesses, customer service and healthcare organizations. Attendance at one of these workshops qualifies for a two-hour Group Rating training credit and/or a Safety Council external training credit with the BWC. The next such workshop will be in the spring.

Be prepared for winter full of snow If you were surprised by the snow on the ground this week, you better get used to it. Weather forecasters are all agreeing on one thing: Ohio is in for a cold and snowy winter. So, how cold will the “cold” be and how much snow can we expect? Let’s just say a good Christmas gift this year may be an extra warm winter coat, hat, gloves and boots. The days of “shivery” are back, says The Farmer’s Almanac. Ohio and the rest of the Midwest can expect “biting, bitterly and piercing” cold and snowy weather this winter, The Farmer’s Almanac predicted. The private forecasting firm Accuweather also sees a cold, snowy winter for the Ohio, as does the Doppler forecast.

Accuweather says late December and into January will see ideal conditions for a big storm. Those conditions could align to bring Chicago and much of Ohio a winter storm just in time for the Christmas holiday. Throughout the winter, the Midwest will see an active storm track that will bring a wintry mix, Accuweather said. The Doppler radar system is forecasting an increased number of “Clipper” like systems dropping southeast out of the Plains of Canada into the Heartland and then making the turn along the Eastern Seaboard. “This will provide a risk of above normal snowfall for much of the Mississippi Valley and Upper Midwest,” said DopplerDale weather blog. It predicts 66 inches of snow for Cleveland this winter, 44 inches for

Detroit and 27 inches for Cincinnati. The Weather Channel is playing it safe, with Chief Meteorologist Dr. Todd Crawford saying, “we do foresee colderthan-normal temperatures across the Midwest into the mid-Atlantic and Southeast in November and potentially into early December.” What else is being predicted? The Meadowlands in New Jersey is hosting its first Super Bowl and chances are good it could be swallowed by a Super winter storm, says The Farmer’s Almanac. The snow birds heading to the central and western Gulf Coast could also be in for severe weather. A few heavy rain events could lead to flooding in December and February, but temperatures should be above normal, says Accuweather.

Letter to the editor

COA to benefit from Meijer program To the Editor: Covington Outreach Association (COA) has been very honored to have partnered with the Troy Meijer’s “Simply Give” food pantry program to help less fortunate families in our community. This program has become a very important way of supporting our food bank. “Simply Give” is heavily backed by our local churches, local businesses, private benefactors and friends of the COA. Our organization worked hard to spread the word about the wonderful dollar-for-dollar matching program Meijer “Simply Give” offers. We are very pleased to announce that we were recently awarded $29,020 in gift cards from Meijer’s fall program to help stock the shelves in our community food pantry. We realize that the slow economy has made it very difficult for those needing help when we look at the statistics for

our own outreach ministries. Covington Outreach Association is currently serving an average 75 families’ emergency assistance needs each month. Our numbers show us that 1/2 of the families that we assist are working but not able to pay their bills and provide meals for their children at the same time. Meijer “Simply Give” allows food pantry dollars to go much further in providing help for those who are working hard just to get by. We thank Meijer for their overwhelming generosity in supporting Covington’s fight to stop hunger in our community. Covington Outreach Association Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located at Covington Church of the Brethren, 101 N. Wall Street, Covington, OH 45318. Contributions are tax deductible.

To the Editor The 1st annual Dazzle Dash Fun Run and 5K sponsored by the Center for Early Learning at Piqua Catholic took place Nov. 9 and was a huge success thanks to many committee members, volunteers and sponsors. The Dazzle Dash Fun Run was a race similar to a color run where volunteers throw colored powder on the participants for fun. More than 130 runners participated with many of our Center for Early Learning students taking part also. Each participant received a T-shirt with their registration fee. We had over 50 volunteers which included Boy Scout Troop 344, Lehman Catholic Cheerleading Squad, members of the Lehman Catholic Soccer team, the preschool parents and staff and many more. Refreshments were served at the post race awards ceremony. The top overall female runner was Alana O’Leary and the top overall male runner was Brian Guillozet. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for helping to make this event so successful: WOTVC Channel 5, Scott Family McDonald’s, Troy Country Club, Bruns Construction, Midwest Maintenance, AdvoCareGigure family, Studio 36, Hemm’s Glass, Brian Bros., Piqua Steel, Galbreath Realty, Dobos, Paul Sherry, Carried Away, Smitty’s Bike Shop, Horan, Shindig Travel, Portrait Creation, Jones Chiropractic, Kentner, Kimage Design, Ulbrich’s, Earhart Petroleum, Knights of St. John, National Cash Advance, Z’s Food and Spirits, Susie’s Big Dipper, and to the city of Piqua for the use of the city’s beautiful linear path.

Writer: ‘business as usual’ on Veterans Day To the Editor: I am very upset and disappointed with the city of Piqua. Veterans Day is a day to pay tribute to all who have served to keep our country free. I was very surprised to see city offices, trash pick up, etc., business as usual. Also I know some, if not all, schools held classes. What happened to honoring or at least respecting our veterans? Is the dollar more important than our veterans? Thank you. Sincerely, Frank Garfoot Piqua

East has great season end Vikings fall to Indians in playoffs David Fong

Regional Sports Editor

DAYTON — Max Current said all week that in a game between two evenly matched teams, the one that made the fewest mistakes would win. As it turned out, it wasn’t so much the team that made fewer mistakes — but rather the team that capitalized on those mistakes — that ended up winning Friday night. Mechanicsburg turned a pair of interceptions by Brandon Purk — including one he returned 66 yards for a touchdown — into 14 points as the Indians outscored Miami East 17-0 in the second half to pull out a 31-14 victory over the Vikings in a Division VI, Region 22 semifinal playoff game Friday at Welcome Stadium. With the loss, East’s history-making season ends at 10-2. Mechanicsburg improved to 10-2 and will meet West Liberty-Salem in a regional championship game at a site to be determined. “We had our chances,” said Current, who led thye Vikings to the first 10-win season and first playoff victory in school history this year. “They made some mistakes and we weren’t able to capitalize. We made some mistakes and they were able to capitalize on them. That was the difference in the game.” The biggest mistakes of them all came midway through the fourth quarter. Down 21-14, East’s Dylan Kinnison recovered a fumble at the Indians’ 44. It was East’s third fumble recovery of the game. Unlike Mechanicsburg, however, East was only able to turn one of those turnovers into points. Two plays after East’s fumble recovery, however, Purk picked off a Conner Hellyer pass and returned it 66 yards for a score to put the Indians up 28-14 and essentially ice the game. Purk — who also caught a 48-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Kalen Romero earlier in the game — would add a field goal late in the game for the final margin of victory. That touchdown pass from Romero to Purk was one of only three passes attempted — and one of only two completed — all night for the Indians. Not that it much mattered, however, as the Indian offense leaned heavily on junior tailback Aeryton Erwin all night long. Erwin finished his night with 28 carries for 252 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Erwin had 164 yards rushing in the second half alone and, unofficially, went over the 2,000yard mark for the season. “I’ll have to look at the film and see what they were doing — and what we weren’t doing,” Current said of East’s inability to stop Mechanicsburg’s ground game. “They were just killing us with that same counter play all night long.” East took the early lead when Brady Smallenbarger recovered a fumble at the Indian 39 and, two plays later, Hellyer hooked up with Michael Fellers on a 37-yard touchdown pass. Mechanicsburg would tie the game on the pass from Romero to Purk. After East’s next drive went nowhere, Mechanicsburg would take a 14-7 after long runs by Romero and Erwin set up a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Erwin. East would tie the game just before halftime when Hellyer completed a pair of long passes to Fellers and tight end Braxton

Donaldson to set up a 2-yard touchdown run by Alex Brewer. “We were right there with them,” Current said. “But in the second half, I think they wore us down a little bit and were able to take advantage of our mistakes, while weren’t able to take advantage of their mistakes.” A 57-yard yard run by Erwin led to his 1-yard run to put Mechanicsburg up 21-14. From there, the game turned on Purk’s interception return and East’s inability to stop Erwin. Despite the loss, however, Current found it hard to be frustrated with how the season went. “We made the Sweet 16 (in Division VI),” he said. “I don’t think if you asked very many people before the season, they would have had us making the Sweet 16. It was a great season for these kids. I’d like to thank my assistant coaches — Scott Donaldson, Kevin Evans, Aaron Gibbons, Steve Kirby, Mark Rose and Todd Hawkins … they helped make this an incredible year.”

Another chance to prove themselves OSU pass defense looks for third straight good game

Jim Naveau Civitas Media

COLUMBUS – Ohio State can match the school record for consecutive wins on Saturday against Illinois, a team which appears to offer genuine field-wiping possibilities. A 22nd consecutive win shouldn’t be in doubt, but maybe a more interesting streak to watch will be to see if OSU’s pass defense can deliver a third straight good game. In the last two weeks, No. 3 Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) has done a 180-degree turnaround in defending the pass after struggling earlier in the season. But those games – a 63-14 win over Penn State and a 56-0 win over Purdue – came against two true freshmen, Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg and Purdue’s Danny Etling. Illinois (3-6, 0-5 Big Ten) has lost 19 Big Ten games in a row. The Illini don’t have a lot going for them, but they do have a four-year starter, Nathan Scheelhaase, at quarterback. Scheelhaase has completed 65 percent of his passes and has thrown for 2,420 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. In his career, he has 7.716 yards passing. Last week in a 52-35 loss to Indiana, Scheelhaase was 38 of 57 for 450 yards and two touchdowns and the week before in a 24-17 overtime loss to Penn State he hit 33 of 52 for 321 yards and a touchdown.

Purdue quarterback Danny Etling, center, is sacked by Ohio State defensive lineman Adolphus Washington, right and Chase Farris.

If the Illinois senior does present a major challenge, it will be different than his three previous games against the Buckeyes. In those three starts, all OSU wins, he has thrown for 96 yards, 169 yards and 109 yards. He has one touchdown pass and four interceptions. “You want to see how much we have improved. The last few weeks have been night and day from what it was earlier in the season. This will be a

great test for us,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Defensive backs coach Kerry Coombs admits Ohio State’s defense wasn’t doing very well when tested by opposing passers earlier in the season. “Obviously, I think our improvement over the last couple weeks has been dramatic. I think we would like to continue to improve. I think our kids have taken that personally and they should,” he

said. Safety Corey Brown, who became a starter after Christian Bryant suffered a broken ankle in the Wisconsin game, said the defense did take it that way. “It was definitely personal. I feel like we’ve been hitting it real hard the last couple weeks to get where we wanted to be,” Brown said. Coombs said Ohio State recognized the problem and put more emphasis on pass defense

after giving up 295 yards, 343 yards and 245 yards passing in its first three Big Ten games against Wisconsin, Northwestern and Iowa. “We found ourselves in a situation where it was obvious we have to get better at this (pass defense). So it was a huge area of emphasis on the part of everybody. You change a little bit of your practice habits, you change a little bit of your scheme, you change a little bit of how you’re

doing your business and you get better,” Coombs said. Linebacker Ryan Shazier said, “We’ve been working on our passing game (pass defense) a lot more lately because earlier in the year we were kind of rough on the passing game. We’re trying to get better week in and week out. “We were supposed to be one of the top defenses in the nation and we weren’t playing like it,” he said.

Browns ready for big moment Face Bengals with chance to take control in division BEREA (AP) — Browns cornerback Joe Haden has been impatiently waiting to play in an NFL game as significant as the ones he almost took for granted in college. When Haden starred at Florida, the Gators had rivalry games with Florida State, conference games with Alabama, title games. Games in The Swamp and at Baton Rouge. Saturday after Saturday, they all meant something. To this point, however, Haden’s pro career has been devoid of games with substance. Until now. Cleveland’s moment has arrived. On Sunday, the Browns (4-5) will visit the first-place Cincinnati Bengals (6-4) with a chance to move up in the AFC North and paint themselves into a playoff picture they’ve been absent from for years. It’s Cleveland’s biggest game since at least 2007, and for Haden, it’s easily his most prominent game since college. “My ‘nati,’ ” he said, referring to Florida’s 2008 matchup with Oklahoma and not Cincinnati. “My national championship game at Florida. Because all of those games at Florida, they were all big. But the game really, really means something to the Browns.” About time. And the Browns believe they’re ready for it. Following a turbulent first two months, they arrived in November hitting their stride. They beat Baltimore, ending an 11-game losing streak to the defending Super Bowl champions. Now, after a bye week to heal their bumps and bruises and address a sickly running game, the Browns are facing their biggest test. “We’re ready,” linebacker Paul Kruger said. “We’re excited. Guys are healthy. I feel like we’re kind of hitting on all cylinders. We’re right where we want to be. We’re in a good situation. We’ve just got to capitalize.”

The Cleveland Browns and cornerback Joe Haden (23) are ready for Sunday’s big game with Cincinnati

Confidence shouldn’t be an issue. In their previous matchup with Cincinnati, the Browns held the Bengals to 266 yards and two field goals in a 17-6 win. Both teams have undergone major lineup changes since because of injuries, but the Browns haven’t altered the one-play-at-a-time, one-gameat-a-time approach coach Rob Chudzinski has been preaching since training camp. “It is a big moment,” said left tackle Joe Thomas. “But it doesn’t feel any different in this locker room because the goals are still the same, the way we’re going to go out and play are still the same, what we’re trying to do on offense and defense and how we’re studying and practicing, it’s all the same. “It just gets more exciting as the season starts winding down and things tighten up in the race.” For years, the Browns have only watched the race.

Cleveland has made the playoffs once since 1999, in 2002, the last time the Browns went 2-0 against the Bengals. They don’t have much experience in crucial games, but safety T.J. Ward isn’t worried that he and his teammate will be overwhelmed by the limelight. “We don’t shy away from any competition,” Ward said. “The stage isn’t too big for the team we have right now. I think we’re going to get better at that and just keep improving. The more we play together, the closer we get, the more cohesion we build. We’re just going to keep improving.” If the Browns can sweep the Bengals, they’ve got a favorable schedule with home games the next two weeks against Pittsburgh (3-6) and Jacksonville (1-8). Before beating Baltimore, the Browns pushed the unbeaten Chiefs (9-0) to the limit before losing 23-17. In past seasons, a similar loss would have been deflating

and invariably followed by another one. However, this Cleveland team viewed it as a positive and another sign of development. On Sunday, they can grow into a contender. “We’re ready,” said defensive tackle Phil Taylor, “and we’ve showed people what we can do with the top-notch teams. Like with the Chiefs, they’re 9-0 right now and we wish we could have that game back, the first half at least, how we did ‘em the second half. We know we can go out there and do it, we’ve just got to go out there and get it together.” Haden’s ability to contain Bengals star wide receiver A.J. Green was one of the keys to Cleveland’s earlier win over Cincinnati. Green had seven catches for 51 yards, but he’s been on a tear since. He leads the league in yards receiving (1,013) and has five straight 100-yard games. Haden draws the same

assignment this week. He’s confident that as long as he and his teammates stay focused, this won’t be the last important game they’ll play this season. “When we approached the first game we studied film, we went out there and played and we did what we had to do,” he said. “If we go about it the same way we played, everybody does their jobs, everything will work itself out. This is really an important game for us. But at the same time, that’s the way we got to where we are now, going game by game.” NOTES: Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton raised some eyebrows when he called S Tashaun Gipson the club’s defensive MVP. “He’s done a remarkable job for us,” Horton said. … RB Willis McGahee got his usual day off from practice to rest his knees. … TE MarQueis Gray (hamstring) also missed practice.

Know Your Potential ers become a valuable commodity to sellers. What seller wouldn’t want to know a prospective buyer had the funds to make a purchase? Being in a strong buying position, buyers gain greater strength in any negotiations that take place over price, terms, or other considerations. If the seller receives two offers - one that is for full price, but the buyer does not have a preapproval letter and another offer for a little less from a buyer that has a preapproval letter - which one will the seller probably take? The pre-approved buyer, of course. The result is a win-win for everyone. Interested in bank-owned homes? Go to www.piquabank to receive a FREE list of all bank-owned properties.

You’ve put aside an extra $125 to buy a new jacket you’ve seen advertised. You know how much you have to spend and it’s in your pocket. Surprise! When you get to the store, you find that the jacket you expected to buy is priced at $175. Disappointment sets in, and you leave discouraged. You decide not to make a purchase after all. Homebuyers sometimes have the same experience - in reverse. They may know the price of homes which meet their requirement, but aren’t

sure how much they have to spend. That is to say, they aren’t certain about the mortgage amount for which they will qualify and if they will be comfortable with the payment. When buyers make an offer on a home and then find out the payments are higher than they expected, the buyers are put in a frightening position. They start loosing sleep and making lists of all the things their family will be doing without. There’s an easy solution that helps avoid discouragement and frustration. Most mortgage lenders will give buyers a pre-approval letter before they begin their home search. The lender simply takes an application, verifies employment, credit information and income. Then using lending formulas, the mortgage company will pre-approve the buyers up to the maximum mortgage amount for which the buyer qualifies. With a preapproval letter in hand, buy-

If they still cannot settle down, suggest to the parents that they “might want to go home since the kids are so restless.” Dear Annie: Like “Not So Home Sweet Home,” I was once a 20-year-old who was uncomfortable around my stepfather. But I figured I would soon be out of the house. How I wish I had confronted him and told my mother. He later molested my young daughter when she was at my mom’s house. My daughter is now 34 and has suffered greatly from what happened to her as a child. She had been told to keep the “special secret” between her and Grandpa. Grandpa was dead before this came to light, so the confrontation never took place. Trust your feelings. Speak out. -Home Was Never Sweet Again.

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013: This year you open up to others, which allows you to see and embody different ideas and styles. This transformation could cause new choices, though you will stay with the tried and true, too. If you are single, the type of person you choose to date could reflect the new you. Expect an unusual person to enter your life by summer 2014. If you are attached, know that your sweetie is adjusting. You might hear a complaint or two, but be understanding. Respect your differences. TAURUS has an earthy perspective. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-Soso; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Someone you work with could be overwhelming with his or her sudden burst of enthusiasm. This energy might revolve around a business deal or a social happening. Do not say “yes” when you really want to say “no.” Tonight: Your treat. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You might feel as if life offers no limitations at this present moment, but you quickly could find out otherwise. Just take a step back and evaluate the situation. You will find a different path. You might want someone else to join in. Tonight: You are the party. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You could be full of ideas

that delight you. You easily might head out the door only to discover that you don’t want to be alone. You’ll want to regroup and find a reliable and fun family member, but he or she might be a stick in the mud. Tonight: The less said the better. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Tap into your creativity, and you’ll find solutions that have not been available up till now. A conversation with a younger friend provides an unexpected perspective. Make sure you let this person know how much you value him or her. Tonight: Go on an old-fashioned date. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Understand what is happening with a family member or close friend. You might need to handle a situation before it becomes a problem. Know that you can do this. Once you are free, make an appearance at an important get-together. Tonight: You love being in the limelight. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Your words mean more to others than you realize. Your ability to follow through on a promise could be another issue entirely. Try not to say you will do something when there is little possibility you will. Catch up on news. Tonight: Hang out with a favorite person or two. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You might think that a suggestion is a great idea, but when you see the financial implications, you

might decide to pull out. Know that someone will be very disappointed. Be open, and tell this person what is happening. Tonight: Go with a different suggestion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You might feel as if you are being challenged unnecessarily. That observation could be true, but it has nothing to do with you. This person simply is feeling his or her Wheaties. Maintain a sense of humor, and you’ll enjoy what is happening. Tonight: Where the crowds are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) HHH Sometimes spending a Saturday doing errands -- getting your hair cut and squeezing in some exercise -- constitutes a nearly perfect day. Doing everything in one day also might free you up on other days or in general. Make time for a nap. Tonight: Avoid complications. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH The back-and-forth between a loved one’s desires and yours continues. You might feel as if you’re sitting on a seesaw looking at ways to combine both of your desires once more. There is a way -- you just have not found it yet. Tonight: Be naughty and nice. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You might be too concerned with what people would think if you did what you wanted to do. Instead of worrying, live your life for you,

and do what you want. Expect some reactions, but know that others do the same. Tonight: Staying close to home could be very appealing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You seem to have the right words to appeal to someone in your immediate environment. News from a distance could be a bit difficult and disappointing. Since you cannot change it, let it go. You will gain a perspective later. Tonight: Favorite spot, favorite people. BORN TODAY Composer W.C. Handy (1873), pianist Diana Krall (1964), figure skater Oksana Baiul (1977)

State Briefs Ohio boy gets stolen wheelchair back CLEVELAND (AP) — A wheelchair stolen from a 9-year-old special needs boy in Cleveland has been quietly returned to a police station, the child’s mother said. “It’s a happy ending,” Stephen Gibson’s mother, Barbara, told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. “He got his wheelchair back.” Stephen’s special green chair with wheels that light up was swiped from the back of the family’s minivan in Cleveland last weekend. It apparently had been used by thieves to cart away $200 worth of food stolen from a refrigerator and freezer in their garage. It turned up at a district police station Thursday night. Barbara Gibson said the chair is “a little rickety” and needs some repairs, but they are thrilled to have it back. Stephen uses it because he has cerebral palsy and scoliosis. “Whoever had it must have figured it was a hot commodity and they needed to return it,” she said. The theft had garnered multiple offers of help from

around the country. Companies had offered to provide Stephen with a new wheelchair for free, and former American Chopper paint artist Robert “Nub” Collard offered to customize one. Funds raised for the Gibsons will go toward extensive home remodeling when Stephen’s scoliosis will require a motorized wheelchair in the coming months.

Ohio village closes park, cuts police hours PERRY (AP) — Officials in a northeast Ohio village whose voters rejected an income-tax increase have decided to close a local park and cut back police coverage.

get. Officials acted Thursday instead of waiting until the new year to trim the budget in the village of about 1,600 residents northeast of Cleveland. The (Willoughby) News-Herald reports that the decision by the council followed the Nov. 5 failure of an income-tax increase ballot issue and the passage of an income-tax credit for residents who work elsewhere. As part of the cuts, the village police will eliminate 16 patrol hours a week during low-volume hours.
