County studies jail options Plans to reopen Incarceration Facility considered

Incarceration Facility on County Road 25-A to address overcrowding at the Miami County Jail. For the past few months, Miami County Sheriff Charles Cox, Chief Deputy Dave Duchak, Lt. Dave Norman and County BY NATALIE KNOTH Commissioner Richard Cultice Ohio Community Media have been working together on plans to reopen two pods at the TROY — Several Miami facility, providing 120 beds. County officials met recently to The population at the downdiscuss the costs of renovating the town jail currently hovers around


115. Under state standards, the number of inmates must fall to 55. “We know this is a public safety and officer safety issue,” Duchak said. “This has been a very difficult problem for judges, officers and probation officers to deal with the last few months.” He added, “This isn’t just like flipping a switch. To do it right, we need six months or so turnaround before it will be func-

tional.” Cultice has proposed renting 20 of the 120 beds at the Incarceration Facility to the U.S. Marshals Service or other counties. At $65 per bed, the county could earn $474,500 to offset some of the new facility’s operating costs. The county would have a net gain of about 40 beds should the 20 be rented out. See Jail/Page 2

MIAMI COUNTY — One man has been incarcerated and more than 200 marijuana plants were seized from a Phillipsburg home on Thursday after Miami County detectives were contacted by members of the R.A.N.G.E. task force using a helicopter to spot marijuana. Officers with the task force were conducting marijuana eradication with Bureau of Criminal Investigation by using a helicopter to spot marijuana. Marijuana was spotted on the property of 9477 N. Montgomery County Line Road, which is within Miami County. Brian E. Wood, 28, of Phillipsburg, was taken into custody without incident and was charged with possession of criminal tools, cultivating marijuana and child endangering, and is still being held at the Miami County jail. Wood resides at the residence with his fianceé and 5-year-old child. The child endangering charge stems from loaded firearms and narcotics being located throughout the residence and accessible to the child.

Wymyslo said 10 major health insurance company are finally on board with the new form of healthcare, which boosts patient wellness and leads to higher productivity in the workplace. He said businesses now see the benefits of a healthier employee and are pushing health insurance companions to support their efforts with businesscentral wellness programs. “Ohio is one of the leaders of this model,� he said. “It costs less and get better outcomes (less emergency room visits and costly medical interventions). Our focus is looking upstream. We need to demonstrate

the value of not getting ill because a healthy workforce is a productive workforce.â€? Wymyslo said he has worked hard to secure grants — to the tune of $40 million — to fund the push toward healthcare reform at the state level ‌ well before the American Affordable Health Care Act ever was passed at the federal level. “Every one voted in support of this model — 100 percent — they support this model because it works and it makes doctors rethink how they’ve been practicing now,â€? Wymyslo said, noting the entire Ohio General Assembly voted in favor of the Patient-Centered Medical Home initiative. Wymyslo also offered numerous suggestions to the Miami County Health District on how to be a bigger

ODH’s first major step in moving toward this model is the recent establishment of the Ohio Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (OPCPCC). The OPCPCC is a coalition of primary care providers, insurers, employers, consumer advocates, government officials and public health professionals who are joining forces to create a more effective and effi-

Wymyslo said much of the health care reform initiatives out there is like the Lewis and Clark Expedition. “You know who your people are, you have limited funds and you don’t know where you are going — ask people to help more and look local, not state or federal,� Wymyslo said, noting that Miami County has a wealth of resources in its community as well as active leaders in the medical field. Wymyslo also said he hopes to move the health of Ohio forward by keeping physicals and nurses and the like in the areas they are practicing and in Ohio itself.

Miami County Health District’s medical director Dr. Jim Burkhardt D.O.’s practice, Upper Valley Family Care, is one of the 75 practices in the state of Ohio which is piloting the four-year OPCPCC program. “A year ago we because looking at the patient’s needs and what they needed beyond just the initial visit,� Dr. Burkhardt said.

Burkhardt said often doctors get sidetracked during the visit when they needed to look at the whole needs of the patient instead of the ailment which brought them through the door. “It’s getting better,� Burkhardt said. Burkhardt said the cost of implementing the pilot program was hefty but believes as a whole that the new health care revolution will work in the benefit of all involved in the

COLUMBUS (AP) — Health officials say the death of a 61-year-old Ohio woman is the first associated with a new swine flu strain. The Ohio Department of Health says the woman died this week. It says that she had other medical conditions but that

the H3N2v influenza virus may have contributed to her death. She was not identified but lived in Madison County. She became ill after contact with hogs at the Ross County Fair. Federal health authorities report 288 cases of the strain this summer.

Duchak said this could fall to $150,000, however, because it would be for only a portion of the entire facility.

• $352,990 in medical contracts, for both the downtown and reopening two pods of the County Road 25-A facility. • $303,315 for food service, also for both facilities. Jail officials have looked into cost-saving measures such as serving cold breakfast. • $17,111 in office and cleaning supplies. Many of the estimates are likely considerably higher than the actual expenses, Duchak said. “Through commissary funds, we do recoup some money,â€? he said. “We’re looking at the worse-case scenario.â€?

“Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.” (Psalms 119:105 AKJV)

Chamber’s absence criticized

Open Mike

Hero yes, but Armstrong also remembered as kind man “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Those immortal words, and of course the feat that set the stage for those words, cemented a place in history for Ohio native Neil Armstrong. Like most Americans, I followed every step of the Apollo 11 mission as Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins journeyed toward their destiny as the first humans to walk on the moon. And, like most Americans, all of the members of the astronaut corps were my heroes. Equal in my eyes, especially as I grew older were the test pilots, many of whom joined the corps of astronauts, who put their lives on the line in order to test and perfect the machines that allowed us to become the first nation, and to date, the only nation, to put a human being on the surface of the moon, and more importantly, return him safely to earth. Men like Chuck Yeager, Scott Crossfield and Joe Kittinger, to name but a few, who tested the machines as well as tens of thousands of men and women behind the scenes are the one who allowed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to turn that “small step” into “one giant leap.” I must mention the “tens of thousands” because, as was repeated by all who spoke at the memorial service for him at the Armstrong Air and Space Museum this past week, that is exactly what Armstrong would tell anyone who asked. Landing a man on the moon was a team effort. He was just MIKE ULLERY a member of the team. I was privileged to Chief Photographer have the opportunity to photograph and spend time with Armstrong on a number of occasions over the years, through my work as photographer for the National Aviation Hall of Fame, in which he was enshrined in 1979. His reluctance to speak of his accomplishments and his wish for privacy has been well-documented. I will only say that the time that I spent with him was among the most memorable moments of my life. He was always gracious and kind. I got to the point where I would apologize in advance before he made a public appearance and tell him that if he got tired of the camera, just say the word I would stop. Not one time did he ever say stop. He would put on that Neil Armstrong grin, then go out and greet hundreds and thousands of folks, to whom Armstrong was a hero above all others. He regularly represented the National Aviation Hall of Fame at their annual enshrinement and at the National Aviation Heritage Invitational, a joint venture for the hall of fame and Rolls-Royce. His kindness and generosity in proudly representing both organizations is just one more example of the type of man Armstrong was. The mark left in our history books by Neil A. Armstrong, is just as indelible as that first footprint he left in the lunar surface. In 2004, at the enshrinement ceremony for the National Aviation Hall of Fame, emcee Dennis Quaid asked me to photograph his son, Jack, who was 11 at the time, meeting Neil Armstrong, Quaid had asked me frequently throughout the afternoon to let him know when Armstrong arrived. As we walked over to greet Armstrong, Quaid told his son, “I want you to know that the man you are about to meet is just like getting to meet Christopher Columbus.” No more accurate description of Armstrong’s place in modern history has ever been spoken. It was a privilege to have known Armstrong and I can say that I am a better person for having known him, not because he was the first man to walk on the moon, but because he was Neil Armstrong, a kind and considerate human being.

To the Editor: For many decades I have been an admirer and supporter of the Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce. In fact, I was one of the founders of the Chamber Ambassadors. For more than 30 years the Piqua Chamber has had a presence at the Piqua Heritage Festival with a food booth. But this year, the chamber has decided not to be part of the Heritage Festival. Its absence has not only left a void in space, but more importantly, a void in not having the Piqua’s business organization back one of the largest generators of local economic development. The mission of the Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce is “to unite the Piqua business community, to enhance the quality of life of our citizens, and promote economic vitality and development.” I have come to the conclusion that in this instance the Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce has failed its mission. —Louis Havenar Piqua

Make sure dog’s toys don’t become objects of peril DEAR ABBY: I am writing hoping to avert another tragedy like we experienced last week. Our German shepherd, Leah, was playing with a hard rubber ball the size of a tennis ball. Somehow, the ball slid down her throat. I tried to dislodge it by grabbing and pulling it out, then I tried the Heimlich maneuver. Neither worked. By the time we got Leah to the veterinarian, she was dead. They tried for 25 minutes to revive her. Leah was a friendly, funny, loving dog, not yet 2 years old. We miss her terribly. Abby, please tell your readers to never, ever let their dog play with any object that fits into its mouth. If it fits, it can lodge in the throat. I don’t want anyone else to experience the pain of losing their dog like we lost ours. — KAREN IN CENTER VALLEY, PA.

In this 1954 file photo, James Stewart and Grace Kelly are shown in Alfred Hitchcock’s film, “Rear Window.� CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic LOS ANGELES — “Compliance� is the rare film that’s caused me to do a total 180 on how I feel about it. The psychological thriller about a fast-food manager (Ann Dowd) instructed by a prank phone caller (Pat Healy) to lead a young, female employee (Dreama Walker) through a series of increasingly degrading investigative steps made me squirm in frustration as I was watching it. I knew it was based on true events, but was incredulous that any situation could get this far. How stupid can people be? I wondered. But the more I thought about it, the more impressed I found myself with the mastery of tension and tone writer-director Craig Zobel displayed, and with the precise performances he drew from his actors. “Compliance� stuck with me, challenged me and changed my mood in a way most films don’t, and it’s been prompting similarly strong and sometimes vocal responses from audiences since its Sundance premiere. As the film expands this week, Zobel was nice enough to pick five of his own favorite psychological thrillers. Here he is, in his own words:

spades and two hearts, and he knows from the bidding that East had either seven diamonds and no clubs or six diamonds and one club. It follows that South cannot lose more than one club trick if he next plays a low club from his hand and a low club from dummy!

From declarer’s viewpoint, the outcome hinges on whether he can restrict himself to one club loser. If East has the king, South’s chances are excellent, but if East does not have the king, West might score two club tricks and so defeat the contract. South does not test the club situation immediately. Instead, he first assembles all the information he can about the defenders’ hands. He

— “Don’t Look Now� (1973): For people who only like things that make complete sense, maybe this isn’t the first movie on this list you should watch. But Nicolas Roeg’s deconstructed, fractured editing is at its best here, and Donald Sutherland is at his most moody/cool. If psychological thrillers are all about tone, this film is the definition of foreboding. It also makes a terrifying case for not allowing any short people to ever wear red hoodies.

Bridge is a logical game



— “Repulsion� (1965): Which Polanski? “Knife In The Water� quickly jumps to mind. But remember that part in “Repulsion� where Catherine Deneuve’s sister has gone on vacation with her married boyfriend, and the dude has accidentally left one of his shirts in their apartment? And how Deneuve takes the shirt of the philanderer and just smells it for a long time? What a weird way to react to someone you hate. Add the fact that she wanders around with a dead rabbit in her purse for half the movie, and you’ve gotta put that on the list.

love “The Conversation.� This movie rocked me the first time I saw it. Gene Hackman plays a man so sure of what he knows, that his mind (and apartment) becomes entirely dismantled as he finds out the lesson of “assume nothing.� I also love how it’s basically a faithful remake of Antonioni’s “Blow Up.� But rainier.

— “The Silence of the Lambs� (1991): This film is an amazing blend of creepy and tense that makes me hold my breath no matter how many times I watch it. The performances and filmmaking are all just amazing. And the script— with Clarice, its complex protagonist, and its twin monsters of Lecter and Jame Gumb — is really impeccable. One of those rare films that totally surpasses its source novel. If you haven’t seen it recently, find it and watch it again. It not only holds up, but I pretty much guarantee it’ll be one of the creepiest and best films you’ve seen.

married three years, and we are both lucky to have families that are kind and supportive. However, there is one recurring issue with his family that I find annoying. Nobody in my husband’s family has a driver’s license or owns a car. This includes his two aunts and mother, who all live in the same town we do. As the only driver in the family, I am regularly asked to shuttle relatives to the doctor, the pet groomer, the grocery store, etc. Abby, none of them have any physical or mental disability that prevents them from driving. We live in a city with a number of cab companies that serve the area. I work hard so I can pay my car insurance bills, my car payments and buy gas to get to where I need to. I’m starting to resent being asked to drive three able-bodied adults who are perfectly capable of driving themselves or taking a taxi. Am I being inconsiderate?

Lee and Jaqua III wed

Charles and Beverly Yount of Piqua are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married by the Rev. Arthur Boston on Sept. 8, 1962, at the Congregational Christian Church in Piqua. The couple have one daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth (Beth) and Rick Hanes of Piqua. Their grandchildren are Luke, Joshua and Katherine Hanes. Charles is semi-retired and presently works in sales. He previously worked for the Miller-Meteor Motor Car Co., Robards Furniture and Wally’s Carpet Store. Beverly is retired from ElderBeerman. She is a past master gardener and also is a Reiki Master. Charles was an avid bowler for more than 40 years and Beverly has belonged to the same “girls” (classmates of the Piqua Central High School Class of 1956) card club for also more than 40 years. They both love to travel and enjoy their annual fall trip to the “quiet side” of the Smoky Mountains. California is a favorite place to visit, along with the beaches of the Carolinas and the shores of the east and west coasts of Florida. Attending their grandchildren’s con-

NEW YORK (AP) — Diet Pepsi is tweaking its formula to stay sweet a little longer. PepsiCo testing a new mix of artificial sweeteners that lets the soda keep its taste for a longer period of time. The problem is that the current sweetener used in the soda — aspartame — loses its potency faster than high fructose corn syrup, the sweetener that’s used in most regular sodas. A person with knowledge of the situation says the company had considered importing versions of Diet Pepsi sold in other countries to the U.S. But now it’s testing a new version that could come out next year. The new version is intended to have the same overall taste, according to the person,who requested anonymity because she wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. But it uses a mix of artificial sweeteners, including ace-K, that has a longer shelf life. Aspartame on its own is more sensitive to heat, which is a problem when sodas are sitting in trucks or waiting to be shipped to retailers. It’s not the first time PepsiCo is tweaking a diet soft drink. The company, based in Purchase, N.Y., made a similar switch to its Diet Mountain Dew in 2006.

Tours will be available. For more information contact Lu Ann Presser at 937-497-6542.

ike the question of the chicken and the egg, homeowners planning to buy a new home must ask, “Which comes first?” Do you sell first, and then look for a new home or, buy first and risk maintaining and financing two properties? There’s more risk than just two mortgages. If you’re rushed to sell your home to purchase a new one,you might accept a lower price than expected. If you’re pressed to buy a new home after selling your existing home, you may have to pay a bit more than you expected. What is one to do? Build a bridge! Yes, there is a financing option called a KATHY HENNE bridge loan, so named because it spans the gap between your sale and your purchase. One type of bridge loan lets you simultaneously pay off your existing mortgage and make a down payment on the new one.You make payments on the new loan and pay off the bridge loan when your old home sells. Another kind of bridge allows you to borrow against the equity in your old home to make the down payment on the new home. Both bridges still mean two loans,but the costs may be offset as a result of being able to purchase your dream home that is currently available for a great price.To qualify for a bridge loan, you’ll need excellent credit. It’s just one solution to the problem facing many homeowners wanting to move up or move down. If this sounds like a solution for you, contact your local lender to see if you can qualify for a bridge loan.


New fuel economy rules to save Ohio drivers over $2 billion COLUMBUS — New regulations finalized by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency will set a fuel-efficiency standard for cars and light trucks by model year 2025. They’ll have to get just over 54 miles per gallon of gasoline,almost double what they get today. The administration predicts the move will lower U.S. oil consumption by $12 billion barrels, reduce greenhouse-gas emissions,spur job growth in the auto industry and save consumers more than $1.7 trillion at the gas pump. Rob McCulloch,senior policy and legislative advocate for the Blue Green Alliance, said it’s good news for Ohio drivers. “The cumulative savings for Ohio in terms of fuel costs would be about $2.6 billion, and that’s through 2030.” McCulloch said the standards would also bring 21,000 jobs to Ohio through 2030. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has vowed to overturn the fuel-efficiency rules if elected, saying they “hurt domestic automakers and provided a benefit to some of the foreign automakers.”The Obama administration says its new measures have the backing of the U.S. auto industry and the


Drought means managing feed

Bridging the gap between homes

MARY KUHLMAN Ohio News Network writer


United Auto Workers. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said the auto industry has been and will be creating jobs in the effort to reach the 2025 standards. “I think we know that the American people want more fuel-efficient cars.That’s why they’re wildly popular right now. And the car manufacturers are responding to that by increasing capacity.” McCulloch said it would be a mistake for a new administration to come in next January and overturn regulations to which the auto industry has agreed. “The U.S. auto industry has really ramped up their production of producing the more cleaner, fuel-efficient cars that people want in the marketplace. On top of just having that for the U.S. market, that makes us more globally competitive as well.” EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson was asked if other industries - such as coal, oil and gas - might take a cue from Detroit’s cooperation. She praised the carmakers. “They’re not trying to make regulations go away. They know that the government can help consumers by saving money at the pump. They want to make sure that cars are on a level playing field. What they’ve asked for all along is one nationwide standard.” Ohio statistics from the Blue Green Alliance are online at

Experts suggest ‘outside-the-box’ management ideas to try to minimize the economic losses


A cow and its calf are herded into the auction arena at the Springville Feeder Auction Association Aug. 4 in Springville, Ind. Indiana's worst drought in decades is forcing some cattle farmers to sell off cows they can no longer afford to feed as pastures dry up and feed prices soar. ASSOCIATED PRESS LANCASTER — The worst drought on record in Ohio has forced many livestock producers to choose between culling their herds or forking over significantly more money to feed their cattle. But a pair of Ohio State University Extension experts said producers might want to consider “outside-the-box” management ideas to try to minimize the economic losses. The extreme heat and dryness have left many producers short on hay and silage supplies, and thus, at a loss for how to best manage their feed rations, said John Grimes, beef coordinator for OSU Extension. But producers who are open to nontraditional ideas might be able to save money and save their herds. “This year has posed some significant challenges that increase the need to think of solutions that are more outside of the box than what farmers may do in a typical year,” Grimes said. “I think the key for any operation is to get as much production as we can off of an acre. Just typical management that we’ve done over the year with hay production may not be enough. We may need to look at some different options.” As a result, many farmers are now using silage as a large part of their plans for surviving the drought, said

Stan Smith, an OSU Extension program assistant in agriculture and natural resources. “Obviously this year the hay production has been down due to the drought and we’ve found the quality of the hay, quite frankly, isn’t good as we’ve tested some of it,” he said.“So as we get into fall, we’re finding a lot of corn in fields that aren’t going to yield a lot of grain, and they can be made into

which has left many people scrambling thinking they have to find hay to feed their cows,” he said. “But you can feed cows a minimal amount of hay and supplement it with the appropriate amount of corn silage.” Not only is that a viable option for livestock producers, but it also can be a smart option for corn growers who are looking at yields in the 50-bushel range, Smith said. “For growers who typi-

corn silage.” Smith said the drought has left farmers a “great opportunity” to gather up a lot of high-quality feed on not a whole lot of acres. “While the concept of feeding brood cows feed made up of corn silage is not something that cattlemen may typically do, this year our hay crops and pastures have been devastated by drought,

cally sell their corn, (such low yields) mean they won’t have much income this year,” he said. “Yields are worse even than what we anticipated. “But if growers are proactive, they may be able to harvest the field as silage instead of grain because many of these fields won’t have a lot of value as grain. Growers can get more value

from their harvest from corn silage and then can find a way to adapt to feed it to cattle.” Growers who haven’t done a lot of corn silage in the past, or who don’t have silos, can still take advantage of the option by using the bagging system for fermenting corn silage, Smith said. The bagging system, where feed is forced into the bag and sealed to allow the corn to ferment, can be put on any vacant area. “We’ve known people who have stored this silage for as long as two years before they’ve fed it,” he said. Other options include annual forages, such as oats and rye as an alternative, Grimes said. “There’s been a lot of work done by OSU Extension with oats and rye as annual forages we can plant to get supplemental feed for the winter months,” he said. “And there’s always the old standby practice of putting nitrogen on forages in late summer and early fall to get some extra grass growth going into the winter. “Those are time-tested things we can do to add feed to any operation.” Information from Ag Answers, Ag Answers is a collaborative effort by the Agricultural Communication at Purdue University and the Section of Communications and Technology at The Ohio State University.

Prisoner who smuggled took in counterfeit cash MORNING JOURNAL STAFF LORAIN — The 22-yearold man accused of smuggling drugs into the Lorain City Jail using a body cavity also brought in counterfeit money, according to a Lorain

police report. John Herring III, of Lorain, was searched Monday while officers prepared to transfer him to Lorain County jail. A corrections officer used a counterfeit detector pen to check the currency Herring had and determined one of his $20

bills he had when arrested was counterfeit. Police seized the bill as evidence. Herring was caught with drugs in the jail when a inmate tipped off a jailer that Herring had the drugs on him day after he was booked, police said. Herring was a

Lorain Municipal Court when officers learned this information onAug.24.He was brought back to the city jail to be searched. During that time, Herring was seen on video pulling drugs out of his pants from his crotch area and dropping them in a garbage can, police said.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today is an emotional, excitable day! You might be eagerly waiting for something to happen or shocked by something that already did happen! One thing is certain: Your daily routine will change. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel restless today. Something secretive or behind the scenes might catch you off guard. Just cope as best you can, with ease and calmness. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Expect to meet someone unusual or bizarre today, or perhaps in a group situation you will run into someone you least expect to see. You feel bold and energetic! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Conversations with people in authority will not be predictable today. In fact, you suddenly might want to quit your day job. Don’t do this; it will just be an impulse. Think things through. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Sudden opportunities to travel might fall into your lap today. Ditto for chances to get further education or training. Your window of opportunity is brief, so act fast! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might be surprised by a gift or a perk from someone today, because it looks like the universe owes you a favor. Be quick to accept! This offer will not linger. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with partners and close friends are unpredictable today. Someone might demand more freedom in a relationship, or this person might want to change how things work. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your work routine might be interrupted by computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages, canceled meetings or equipment breakdowns. Therefore, allow extra time for wiggle room and a chance to do damage control. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is an accident-prone day for your kids or kids in your care. Therefore, be extra vigilant. Know where they are at all times. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Small appliances might break down at home today, or minor breakages could occur. Unexpected company could drop by. Stay on your toes! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign, so think twice before you speak or do anything. Guard against thoughtless, knee-jerk reactions to others. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Keep an eye on your money today. You might find money; you might lose money. And guard your possessions against loss or theft. YOU BORN TODAY You seem to be quiet and unassuming. You hate phonies and pretentious behavior; yet, when stressed, you can become remarkably animated and bizarre! You are fair, honest and dependable, and you always defend the underdog. You have excellent money savvy, and you know what you want. Take the time to study or learn something valuable in the year ahead, because it will benefit you.

But, on second and 18, he hit Josh Holfinger for a 19-yard gain and Hughes ran eight yards to the Kings 20. “One of the big things on that drive was we were able to hit a couple of hiches for big gains (after the catch),” Nees said. The next two plays were completed passes inbounds for one and zero yards, leaving a fourth-and-one. Kings had players cramp up after both plays, stopping the clock. “We were fortunate,” Nees said. “We were able to save our timeouts.” After an illegal procedure, Young hooked up with Crawford for the game-winner. “Justice can run,” Nees said. “But, he made a great throw and Ben made a nice catch.” The game got off to a good start for Piqua.

Canan’s 334 yards keys Roader win Bradford beats Bethel BY COLIN FOSTER AND JAMES FREEMAN Staff Intern Ohio Community Media BRADFORD — During Curtis Enis’ tenure as the Bradford head coach, a win over Bethel hasn’t been a common occurrence. Even before Enis took over, it just didn’t happen. On the night of a blue moon, Bradford got that rare win in a 26-13 victory — thanks to senior James Canan’s 334 yards rushing on 38 carries to go with three touchdowns. “The win was huge,” Enis said. “Basically, the kids wanted to come out and show what they have been working on to get better at. The kids wanted to make a statement, and that’s what they did tonight.” According to the CCC’s Twitter feed, it has been more eight years since the ‘Roaders defeated the Bees. The Bradford offense set the tone for the game on the first drive. The Railroaders had a 17-play drive — lasting over eight minutes — stall on the

14-yard line. Bethel caught Bradford off guard on its first play with Jason Clendening throwing a 22-yard pass. The offense failed to gain another yard on the drive, though, and was forced to punt. Canan — who had 193 yards on 18 first-half carries — then decided it was time to take over. He amassed 34 yards on the drive to set up a 16yard touchdown pass from Brandon Wysong to Dallas Cassel. A missed extra-point gave Bradford a 6-0 lead. After another short Bethel drive, Canan scored on the first play of the ensuing possession, running 57 yards to the end zone. Bradford attempted a two-point conversion, but failed, giving the Railroaders a 12-0 lead. The Bees (1-1, 0-1 Cross County Conference) — who had only mustered 11 yards of total offense — doubled their yardage with an 11-yard run to open their third drive. Three plays later, Brandon Garlough broke free for a 47-yard touchdown run — cutting the lead in half after a failed conversion attempt. Bradford (2-0, 1-0 CCC) tried to add to its lead before the half, driving the ball to the 6-yard line

Covington impressive in routing Mississinawa BY BEN ROBINSON UNION CITY — Maximum effort on every play. That’s the message delivered by the Covington coaching staff on a daily basis to a football team looking to max out on its potential. It’s the expectation regardless of what the scoreboard reads and who is in the lineup. And maximum effort is what the entire Covington roster gave for four quarters in a 62-0 victory over Mississinawa Valley, Friday night. “Yes,” agreed Covington coach Dave Miller. “I agree one-hundred percent. Our kids played hard from start to finish.” And it showed as Covington thoroughly dominated the game on both sides of the ball - rushing for 556 yards and holding the Blackhawks to just 17 yards of total offense.

Lehman falls to Minster MINSTER — Minster exploded for 26 points in the first half and went on to win easily over Lehman, 467 in non-league football action Friday night. Lehman drops to 0-2 and hosts Indian Lake Friday at Sidney. Minster is 2-0 and hosts New Bremen Friday. Minster set the tone early when Troy Kauffman took a pass from Adam Niemeyer and sped 94

yards for a touchdown less than four minutes into the game. Niemeyer then hit three more TD passes before the first quarter was through, 31 yards to Ethan Wolf, 53 yards to Korey Schultz, and 9 yards to Wolf. Schultz had a 29-yard run in the second quarter and Niemeyer ran in twice from 23 and 27 yards for a 46-0 bulge at the half.

plays for 72 yards and pushed the lead to 14-0 on a touchdown run by A.J. Ouellette. “Our offensive line took over,” Miller said. “It wasn’t like we came in saying we were going to run this play or that play. We took what they gave us and our kids up front came off the ball low and hard.” The flood gates opened in the second quarter as Covington scored on four of five possessions in the frame - the last possession ending inside the Mississinawa 20 as time expired. By then, it was 42-0 in favor of Covington. Junior Justin Williams started the second half by taking the handoff from his brother, freshman Jared Williams, and bursting in for a five-yard score. From there, freshman Brandon Magee scored on two long touchdown runs to cap an impressive evening for the Buccaneers. “I’m pleased with our effort across the board,” praised Miller of his kids. Covington improves to 2-0 overall and hosts Bethel (1-1) next week.

Lehman’s only score came with 2:36 remaining on a 21-yard pass from Nick Rourke to Andrew Westerheide. Niemeyer finished 8-for13 passing for 248 yards. Wolf was on the receiving end of four. Schultz led Minster’s ground game with 96 yards on just eight carries. Lehman had 94 yards rushing.

Miami East evens record ANSONIA — Even with a big lead at the half, Miami East coach Max Current was uncomfortable, because he was concerned might get a bit too comfortable. But the Vikings (1-1, 10 Cross County Conference) held onto a sense of urgency throughout the game, keeping the pres-

We don’t rty to be something we’re not.” Defensively, Covington shut down the Blackhawk offense in the first half as Mississinawa Valley never crossed midfield. It wasn’t until a pass interference penalty by Covington in the third quarter that Mississinawa Valley gained a first down and entered Buccaneer territory. “Our kids were flying to the football,” said Miller. “I like the fact that it didn’t matter who it was, whether it was a starter or a JV kid, everyone flew to the football.” Covington opened the contest with a 7-play, 74yard drive that was capped by a short touchdown run by quarterback Trent Tobias.

Wallace, Moore Pagano’s job becomes much tougher cut by Browns Mr. Irrelevant leads Indianapolis past Bengals CLEVELAND (AP) — Seneca Wallace threw a touchdown on his last pass in Thursday's exhibition. Turns out, it was his last pass for the Browns. The veteran quarterback was waived Friday by Cleveland, a move that seems to indicate the team will keep former starter Colt McCoy as a backup to rookie Brandon Weeden. Wallace was released along with tight end Evan Moore, a person familiar with the decisions told The Associated Press. Wallace and Moore were informed of the moves earlier Friday said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Browns have not yet announced their roster cuts. The team must get down to the NFL's mandatory 53-man limit by 9 p.m. The 31-year-old Wallace spent two seasons with the Browns, who acquired him in a 2011 trade from Seattle, where he had played for Browns president Mike Holmgren. Wallace started seven games for Cleveland. After coach Pat Shurmur named Weeden his starter, Wallace and McCoy were left to battle for the No. 2 job. Shurmur left open the possibility he would keep both, but decided to waive Wallace and his $2.4 million contract and keep Thad Lewis as his third quarterback. Shurmur coached Lewis in St. Louis. Wallace completed 16 of 27 passes for 195 yards

and two TDs during the preseason. In Thursday's 28-20 loss to Chicago, he threw a 2-yard TD pass with 41 seconds left in the second quarter to cap an 80-yard scoring drive. Following the game, Wallace said he wasn't worried about his future. "This isn't my first rodeo," he said. "I felt like I've done all I've can. Whatever decision is made is made." Wallace's release was first reported by McCoy has been the subject of trade speculation for months, but it appears the Browns will keep him to sit behind Weeden. Shurmur has praised McCoy for his professionalism in handling his demotion and insists the third-year QB has improved. McCoy is just 6-15 in two seasons as a starter. Moore caught 62 passes in three seasons for Cleveland, which signed him last September to a twoyear contract extension worth nearly $3 million per year. However, after having a big training camp in 2011, Moore had a puzzling season as the Browns struggled to figure out how to best use the 6-foot-6, 250pounder. He had 34 receptions for 324 yards and four touchdowns. Moore seemed to become expendable with the development of secondyear tight end Jordan Cameron. Cleveland also has veterans Ben Watson and Alex Smith.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts newcomers may have just made Chuck Pagano's next task that much harder. With cut-down day looming, rookie quarterback Chandler Harnish, Mr. Irrelevant, led the Colts on three touchdown drives and threw a 42yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Dominique Jones with 6:54 left in the game to give Indy a 20-16 victory over Cincinnati. Now the Colts coach must decide who stays, who goes and who might return on the practice

squad. "It's extremely tough because these guys have worked their whole lives, dreamed of something their whole lives since Pop Warner really, and we have 22 bags to pack tomorrow at some point," Pagano said. "It's extremely tough." Harnish made his case during his most extensive — and impressive — action of the preseason. On a night that Andrew Luck followed the script and left after one series, and Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton improvised and departed after six plays after bruis-

ing his throwing arm, it was the backups who shined. Deji Karim and Darren Evans each rushed for touchdowns for Indy (22). Jones, another rookie, made a nifty catch on Harnish's final pass, eluded one tackle and broke another as he ran down the right side of the field and overpowered his way into the end zone. Moise Linebacker Fokou, whom Indy acquired in a trade with Philadelphia, had 13 tackles, broke up two passes and forced a fumble, and Harnish, dubbed

Mr. Irrelevant as the last pick in the draft, wound up 9 of 16 for 162 yards with one TD pass — the winning score. "I don't know if satisfied is the word I'd use," Harnish said. "I'd say confident. We do feel pretty pumped up about what we did (winning). You can only do so much. I think there's been a lot of good things for myself and the unit." The biggest scare for Cincinnati came on its sixth offensive play when an offensive line already playing without starting center Kyle Cook broke down.
