PIQUA — About a dozen people braved an undecided Mother Nature to see the first bite taken out of the former Piqua Memorial Hospital on Wednesday morning at Nicklin and Park avenues. While seemingly anticlimatic under brooding dark skies, the first steps toward removal of the hospital, including a former nurse’s building and the Nicklin Medical building, were exciting for those in attendance of what will take an estimated four weeks to clear. Thanks to $2 million provided by the Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund (CORF), a partnership with the Upper Valley Medical Center, Piqua city schools, the city, and residents, a dream has become a reality. The old hospital property will become the site become home to one of three new intermediate school buildings with a completion date for the 2015-16 school year. Among those in attendance were Economic Development Director Bill Murphy, Commissioner Joe Wilson, Stormwater

Deputy pleads not guilty Byers on administrative leave after OVI arrest BY WILL E SANDERS Staff Writer TROY — Suspended Miami County Sheriff’s Deputy Douglas D. Byers missed his morning arraignment in municipal court on Wednesday on charges of driving intoxicated through Piqua at

speeds as high as 85 mph, but his attorney filed a written plea of not guilty later in the afternoon. Byers’ attorney, Andrew Pratt, filed an entry of appearance stating his client will enter a not guilty plea to each charge and requested a pretrial conference, which has yet to be scheduled. Byers, 43, of Bradford, has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving left of center and speeding.

PIQUA — Although Piqua and Troy High Schools rank among the oldest football rivals in Ohio, competition extends beyond the gridiron. For the past 12 years the Piqua Indian nation has hosted an annual blood drive to provide life-saving blood supplies for area hospitalized men, women and children with Troy vying for honors as well. One hundred enthusiastic PHS students regis-

tered for Wednesday’s drive held in the school gymnasium and organized by 13 staff from the Community Blood Center of Dayton. Site coordinator and PHS business teacher Rob Dickerson reports that 71 units of blood were donated by both faculty and staff over a five-hour period. The annual drive, he explained, is held in conjunction with U.S. Bank. Both the Piqua and Troy bank branches conduct their own respective drives and final units collected are tallied along with Piqua and Troy High School efforts. Piqua, if declared the winner, will be awarded a See Blood drive/Page 2

Crash results in spilled milk

Wilma Hamm Partin


A semi pulling from a driveway with a load of milk ended up on its side in a ditch north of Fletcher on Wednesday afternoon. A tractor-trailer filled to near its 8,000-gallon capacity tipped over when the driver got too close to a steep ditch as he pulled from a driveway after a pickup in the 8700 block of Burr Oak-New Hope Road, about a mile north of U.S. Route 36 in northern Miami County, around 3:30 p.m.The driver was uninjured but the truck was leaking both diesel fuel and raw milk into the ditch and nearby soy bean field. Another milk truck was called in order to pump as much of the tanker contents as possible before a tow truck can put the tanker back onto its wheels.

Hospital Coordinator Devon Alexander, Director of Utilities Dave Burtner, Piqua resident Harlen Smoot, a retired construction worker who helped build the east wing of the former hospital, and Development Program Manager Bill Lutz. “It’s just a happy day for me, more than anything, a lot of hard work out there,” said Lutz about the project that, after many misfires, took off after the city’s acquiring funding from the state. “It looked pretty iffy, you never know until they say you are funded.” Lutz and Murphy, who traveled to Columbus to speak on behalf of the city

in obtaining funds for the demolition project, were up against more than a dozen other equally needy communities. The program manager said they were one of the lucky ones chosen in the end and now, 15 months later, the results of their work has come to fruition. In time, the primary structures, the former hospital building itself, a four-story concrete, brick facade structure with a partial basement and tunnel system, will be no more. As will the threestory brick administration building, a power house; nothing more than memory of what was opened in 1905 as Ball Memorial Hospital. The former hospital

went through several transformations over the years, including part of it being torn down and replaced in 1969. It ceased operation in 1996 and stood vacant until the property was sold to Hospdela LLC in 2005 for what was to be senior housing. A development that never transpired, thanks to a poor economy, with Hospdela seeking demolition by Avalon Commonwealth Inc., in exchange for steel and scrap metal. Unfortunately, the demolition contractor’s methods violated environmental regulations, forcing Hospdela to remove the hazardous wastes outside the building and suspect material

schools and businesses provide a “convenient” means for teens and adults to donate much needed blood units. The CBC staff expeditiously set up a pod of 12 beds along with equipment stands, privacy cubicles for screenings and a registration table as well as refreshments of juice and cookies. As students arrived in 10-minute increments they were escorted to a registration table where they received a photographed identification providing their name and birthdate. After answering a 53question survey, they were screened by CBC staff and had their blood pressure, temperature and hemoglobin checked. Upon verification, each was assigned a bed where staff hooked up blood bags and began the collection procedure. Many passed the time listening to their Ipods or recorded music in the gym. The entire process, Petroski said, takes 45 minutes to one hour. Upon completion, students were taken to a refreshment table for a 10-minute period before they are excused for class. The Community Blood

Bank, it was explained, travels to various sites six times a week at various locations. “It (blood collection) is a wonderful process”, Petroski said, adding that 25 area hospitals benefit from its services. For the past several years the CBC has made a practice of contacting various donors to acknowledge their generosity and informing them know that their blood donation saved a life at a particular hospital. High school students who donate blood at least three times during their career are given a “red cord” at graduation. Sixteen-year-old Jarod Haney, a PHS junior, is among those who donated a unit of blood on Wednesday. “At first I was really nervous and afraid of needles,” he said, “but found that it’s not as bad as I anticipated.” The newcomer said he was inspired by an older sister, Ellen, who was a regular donor in high school until she graduated. The congenial teen said his motivation to give blood had nothing to do with the Piqua-Troy rivalry. “It just

boarded up inside. The entire property was then restricted via fencing in 2009 until the CORF grant changed everything by bringing on board Evans Landscape, Environmental Demolition Group and Burgess and Niple Inc. The first steps made in the hospital demolition is not the only big news for the city this week as a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Buffalo Wings and Rings restaurant will be held from 10-10:30 a.m. today in front of the Miami Valley Centre Mall at Riverside Place. And, weather-permitting, the city is that much closer to seeing the completion of the Ash Street project on Oct. 1.

Blood drive Continued from page 1 $1,000 scholarship for the 10th consecutive year during halftime at the PiquaTroy football game on Oct. 26. Dickerson is hopeful that the Piqua community will respond to the U.S. Bank branch blood collection next Wednesday. The Community Blood Center bus will be available onsite at the College Street branch between the hours of 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. Although walk-ins are welcome, prospective donors are asked to schedule an appointment at to alleviate lengthy waits. The PHS drive attracted a number of newcomers as well as repeat donors. Some students, it was explained, are not suitable candidates if, for example, they have a cold, or lower than normal hemoglobin levels. In order to donate blood, a student must weigh at least 110 pounds and be 17 years of age or 110 pounds and 16 years of age with parental consent. Jowana Petroski, a phlebotomist with the CBC the past three years, suggests that on-site visits such as

Deputy Continued from page 1 called Piqua police after witnessing Byers’ 2003 Chevy Trailblazer “hit the median” of the North Main Street bridge, went airborne and nearly caused a wreck before he continued driving at a high rate of speed through the city, including traveling 70 mph in a 35 mph zone. Once authorities pulled him over the deputy had

“mumbled speech, and glassy and red eyes” and stated he had consumed as many as seven alcoholic beverages. He claimed he did not know he was speeding. The deputy refused to take a field sobriety test or breathalyzer and once he was taken back to the police department verbally berated the arresting officers with a barrage of vulgar names. He also

helps to know that I’m giving to people who need (blood) more,” he responded. Third-year donor Tyler Whitt, a PHS junior, suggests “it (donation) is a really a good thing and allows you to give back to the community.” With a “Blood Donors Rock” black key chain around his neck, the 17-year-old indicated there are “way more positives than negatives” in giving blood. “My willingness to go through a little pain is nothing when helping others,” he said. Business instructor Rick Claprood has donated blood numerous times — 35 to 40 pints over his lifetime — although Wednesday’s drive was his first at PHS. His motivation, he explained, is to ensure that there are sufficient blood bank supplies adding “If the kids can do it, so can I,” he said. While lying on a bed with a blood bag nearby, counselor John Hauer produced a blue ballpoint pen indicating he is a five-gallon donor. “I started (donating) a long time ago and it feels good … it’s the right thing to do.” When asked if his motivation for giving at Wednesday’s drive had any connection with the Piqua-Troy rivalry, he smiled and candidly admitted refused to sign his cita“absolutely.” tion. The internal investigation into the incident is still pending.

“Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the Lord.” (Proverbs 18:22 AKJV)

here’s an old saying that it’s hard to learn with your mouth open. That’s why as senator, I believe that the best way I can serve Ohio is by first listening to Ohioans from different walks of life, political parties, and professions. To do that, I’ve traveled to all 88 counties and held more than 200 community roundtables. Many people ask how anything gets done in Washington. And they’re right. Most Ohioans don’t care about labels. It’s not about whether you’re a Democrat or Republican. It’s about what you are trying to accomplish. That’s how we need to approach the political process if we’re going to turn our economy around and put Ohioans back to work. And that’s the kind of approach that should bring together Democrats and Republicans in Washington. When I joined the Senate, I committed to work with my Republican colleagues as often as possible. I’m glad to say that in the past two years, I have written and introduced bills with 24 of my Republican colleagues and have cosponsored bills, written by others, with all of my Republican colleagues. Working across party lines is the only way that we can address the challenges that our nation faces. Here are five accomplishments I’m most proud of — not just because they were bipartisan, but because they came from the ideas of Ohioans, many times originating at one of the many community roundtables I have held. When a motorcoach carrying members of the Bluffton University baseball team claimed seven lives in 2007, I met John and Joy Betts, parents whose son David was killed in the crash. The bus carrying the Bluffton students did not meet current safety standards. After meeting with Bluffton families, I began working with Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), who was also concerned about the lack of updated bus safety stands. Together, Senator Hutchison and I worked alongside families for five years to pass the Motorcoach Enhanced Safety Act. This SHERROD BROWN U.S. senator commonsense, bipartisan legislation protects tour bus passengers, drivers, and other motorists on America’s highways. During the past six years, I held a series of roundtables throughout Ohio where I asked farmers to share their ideas to reform the farm safety nets so that it’s more responsive to the needs of farmers and to taxpayers. At a roundtable in Henry County, a farmer gave me an idea that led to the creation of a new program to better protect producers while saving taxpayers money. Last year, I began working with Senator John Thune (RSD) to improve the farmer program that arose from my meeting in Henry County. The result was a bipartisan provision that better meets farmer’s needs while saving taxpayers more than $20 billion. I routinely hear from business owners who — despite these challenging economic times — have jobs to fill but can’t find workers with the necessary skills and training to fill these vacancies. That’s why I’ve been working alongside Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) to ensure that our federal job training programs meet the needs of local businesses. We introduced the Strengthening Employment Clusters to Organize Regional Success (SECTORS) Act which would use existing federal funds to align job training programs with so that workers learns the skills employers actually need. Ensuring American workers are equipped with the skills needed to fill open jobs isn’t a partisan issue, it’s commonsense. Another concern I’ve heard often — from business leaders, not just mayors and county commissioners — is the need for modern sewer and water infrastructure to promote economic development and to attract new investment. Communities across Ohio want to update water infrastructure, but they struggle to comply with costly regulations and cannot afford needed improvements. That’s why Senator George V. Voinovich (R-OH) and I introduced the Clean Water Affordability Act in 2008. This legislation would protect local ratepayers, streamline permitting, lead to cleaner water, and promote economic development. A sound wastewater infrastructure with fair rates isn’t just a health and safety issue — it is an economic development imperative. While Senator Voinovich is no longer Senator, I continue to push the legislation that he helped write. Finally, as Ohioans know, our workers and manufacturers are ready to compete with anyone. But when a country like China purposefully manipulates its currency to make its exports cheaper, that’s not competing—that’s cheating. And China’s blatant currency manipulation – the act of undervaluing its currency to give its exports an unfair price advantage over products Made in the USA – drives American companies out-of-business, costs Ohio jobs, and undermines our economy. That’s why I introduced the bipartisan Currency Exchange Rate Oversight Reform Act of 2011 with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). This bill, which was also supported by Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), cleared the Senate by a 63-35 vote. The bill punishes China when it cheats trade laws and ensures a level playing field for American manufacturers. These examples show that Democrats and Republicans can work together on commonsense efforts that create jobs, promote economic development, and improve the lives of all Americans. Bipartisanship is about more than rhetoric. It’s about setting aside political labels and ideological differences to move our country forward. It shouldn’t take hardship to break partisan gridlock, we have other economic challenges that we must address, together. Democrats and Republicans shouldn’t be fighting each other; we should be fighting for the middle class. We have a chance to set aside partisan differences and remember who we’re fighting for. And if we do that, we might even see bipartisanship emerge as an unintended — but certainly welcome — side effect.

To the Editor: It is time to stop this out of control federal government. We are $16 trillion dollars in debt and the federal reserve just approved $40 billion dollars of new debt each month. We will soon be at $17 trillion in debt. Our nation cannot survive this. We are adding more to our massive amounts of people on unemployment and other government subsidized programs. The main stream press reported last week that 47 percent of Americans rely on the government for some type of assistance. It is imperative that we become a self sufficient people and we can do this by going back to work. No government more bailouts, stop the unnecessary government handouts that keep people dependent, and restore America to her greatness. Let’s cut taxes for businesses and individuals and bring industry, production, and self sufficiency back to the United States.

Arts council appreciates local support To the Editor: On behalf of the Piqua Arts Council, I would like to thank the entire Piqua community for supporting the arts in Piqua. We were excited to see so many people downtown Sept. 14 to participate in the first PAC Art Walk. For the second time this year I am excited and overwhelmed by the support of the community. The PAC is happy to help make Piqua a culturally rich community and is working to continue the Art Walk as a quarterly event. This event could not have been a success if it were not for time and dedication of the artists involved and the downtown business. We are so thankful to have this creative collaboration. —Vicky Fanberg Executive Director Piqua Arts Council

Breakup of long marriage ‘Catch the Glow’ event slated at cultural center may be only short-term

DEAR JUDGMENTAL JUDY: I do have a few. If your mother-in-law hasn’t already done so, make sure she gets the best legal advice possible. After 60 years of marriage, there should be plenty of assets to split. They will make her financially independent, and from that, emotional independence will follow. Do not count her out as a weak sister just yet because she appears to be stronger than you think. While it’s possible your father-in-law may want to reunite after the fling, it is equally possible that when the “chick” sees his nest egg is cracked in half, he will be less appealing to her. Only time will tell. In the meantime, keep the peace, bide your time, and as tempting as it may be to voice everything that’s on your mind, keep your lip zipped. This isn’t your marriage, so don’t stir the pot. DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Tom,” the love of my life, for four years. We have been together more than 10 years and have a 2-year-old daughter. Tom was diagnosed with a terminal illness early last year and is close to the end now. He’s very angry, which I understand, but he takes it out on me since I am his caregiver. I’m also a full-time student about to

Things are not always what they seem; in fact, sometimes they are exactly the opposite. Assume you’re West and lead the king of diamonds against four spades. East plays the deuce and South the seven.

Looking at only your own hand and dummy, what should you do next? If you continue with the ace of diamonds, which seems the natural thing to do, declarer easily makes the contract. But if you lead a low diamond at trick two, South goes down one. Your partner wins with the queen and returns a heart, bless him, and it’s all over. How can you possibly be expected to know that a low diamond lead at trick two is the only winning play? Actually, it’s the right play, but it takes a few mental gyrations to reach this conclusion. Your sole task is to interpret the meaning of

your partner’s deuce of diamonds. Ordinarily, a deuce means “stop playing the suit.” But in the present case it would be a serious error to attribute this meaning to it. After the play to the first trick, you should reason that East cannot have either the Q-10-2 or the 102, since he would have played the ten from either holding to ask for a continuation. Therefore, he must have either the singleton deuce or the Q-2 doubleton. Consequently, no harm can come from leading a low diamond at trick two. If East has no more diamonds, he will ruff and re-

turn a heart; if East started with the doubleton queen, he will win and also return a heart. So, oddly enough, the deuce cannot possibly mean what it appears to say. Tomorrow: quiz.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I just got some shocking news. His father — age 81 — is leaving his wife of 60 years. Mom is not entirely self-sufficient and seems dependent on him. Dad found himself a younger woman — a “chick” of 70. He has announced that he still has sexual needs and wants to enjoy the rest of his life. My husband thinks it will be a short-term fling and he’ll return to Mom, but she says she won’t be taking him back. (Who knows how she’ll feel later?) My problem is, no matter what happens between them, I’m having a hard time even considering forgiving him for his selfishness. I know it’s not my place as his daughter-inlaw, but I don’t know how I can bring myself to face him feeling as I do. Any words of wisdom? — JUDGMENTAL JUDY IN ARIZONA

Blue Mass to honor police officers PIQUA — St. Boniface and St. Mary churches will host a Blue Mass in honor of local police officers. The 4 p.m. Saturday mass at St. Boniface and the 9 a.m. Sunday mass at St. Mary will offer special blessing prayer after the Homily, receive a Blessed St. Michael the Archangel medal to be worn or help in their car, and be affirmed by the congregation. The date is the Feast of St. Michael, the Archangel, in the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox faith. The mass is called a ‘blue mass’ due to the traditional blue uniforms worn by police officers. Police offices (Catholic and non-Catholic) from any department and their families are invited to attend. For more information, call 773-1656 or 773-1327.

Crystal Smith, the mother of two Sissonville students, said the prayers do not promote a particular religion. “This is who we are. We’re not trying to push our beliefs on anybody else,” Smith told the newspaper. The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to Kanawha County Schools Superintendent Ron Duerring last week saying the pre-game prayer must be stopped. The letter cites five U.S. Supreme Court decisions regarding mandatory or school-led prayer at school events. The pre-game prayers often were offered “in Jesus’ name,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor, copresident of the organization. “We are not a Christian nation, this is not a Christian


Pakistan disowns bounty on anti-Islam filmmaker ASIF SHAHZAD Associated Press ISLAMABAD — The Pakistani government on Monday distanced itself from an offer by one of its Cabinet ministers to pay $100,000 for anyone who kills the maker of an anti-Islam film, saying the offer does not represent official government policy. The offer by Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour has drawn criticism in Pakistan even though anger against the film runs high in this predominantly Muslim country. Bilour said Saturday that he would pay the reward money out of his own pocket. He also appealed to al-Qaida and Taliban militants to contribute to “a noble cause” of eliminating the filmmaker. The film, made in the United States and entitled “Innocence of Muslims,” has enraged many Muslims around the world for

W.Va. school stops prayer before football games SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — Sissonville High School has stopped offering a prayer before football games after a national organization told school officials the practice is unconstitutional. Many students and parents don’t agree with the decision. Principal Ron Reedy said about half of the school’s 650 students wore purple on Friday to show their support for the pregame prayer. Fans on the Sissonville side recited The Lord’s Prayer after the National Anthem was played at Friday night’s football game. “No one is suggesting to the students that they cannot pray at their leisure,” Reedy told the Daily Mail Charleston ( “We are saying as an institution, we can’t offer prayer.”


school district,” Gaylor told the newspaper. “Football games … are not Christian football games.” Reedy said the school invited pastors from local churches to deliver a prayer, either before or after the National Anthem. “”The prayer was for the safety of our players and the other teams’ players,” Reedy said. “It was not an evangelical thing at all.” Duerring told Reedy in an email obtained by the newspaper that if there were pre-game prayers, they had to stop. Reedy said he halted the pregame prayers when he was informed about the issue. He said he knew prayer at graduation was not allowed but he was unaware of a constitutional issue with a pre-game prayer.


Supporters of a Pakistani religious group wear headbands that read, “at your service God’s Prophet,” as they listen to a speech by their leader, no pictured, during a demonstration that is part of widespread anger across the Muslim world about a film ridiculing Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, in Lahore, Pakistan, Sunday. its portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud, a womanizer and a child molester. At least 51 people, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, have been killed in violence linked to protests over the film, which also has renewed debate over freedom of expression in the U.S. and in Europe. In Islamabad, the Foreign Office said in a statement Monday that the bounty put on the filmmaker’s head reflected Bilour’s personal view and was not Pakistan’s official policy. The minister belongs to the secular Awami National Party, an ally in the government of President Asif Ali Zardari. The ANP is also the ruling party in the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Bilour’s comments appealing to al-Qaida and the Taliban also struck a nerve within his own party, which is considered antiTaliban and has lost several leaders in the fight against the insurgency. His colleague in parliament Bushra Gohar demanded the party force Bilour to explain himself. A party spokesman

Haji Adeel said the statement was Bilour’s personal view, and that the party had sought an explanation from him. “We are a secular party,” he said. “We consider al-Qaida and Taliban as our enemy.” On Friday, Pakistan observed a national holiday, which it termed the “Day of Love for the Prophet,” and called on people to go out on the streets to protest against the anti-Islam film peacefully. But the protests turned violent, and at least 21 people were killed. Rioters set fire to government and public property including a church and several cinemas. A number of Pakistani militant groups that are officially banned took part in the demonstrations. Analysts and columnists have criticized the Pakistani government’s decision to call a national holiday, saying it was appeasing radical Islamists. Others have said by calling a national holiday the government managed to keep thousands of potential demonstrators outside of the capital since all businesses were closed.

Bill Nye warns: Creation views threaten science forts in recent years by lawmakers and school boards in some states to present Bible stories as an alternative to evolution in public schools. Tennessee passed a law earlier this year that protects teachers who let students criticize evolution and other scientific theories. That echoes a Louisiana law passed in 2008 that allows teachers to introduce supplemental teaching materials in science classes.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The man known to a generation of Americans as “The Science Guy” is condemning efforts by some Christian groups to cast doubts on evolution and lawmakers who want to bring the Bible into science classrooms. Bill Nye, a mechanical engineer and star of the popular 1990s TV show “Bill Nye The Science Guy,” has waded into the evolution debate with an online video that urges parents not to pass their religious-based doubts about evolution on to their children. Nye has spent a career teaching science to children and teens with goodnatured and sometimes silly humor, but has not been known to delve into

topics as divisive as evolution. Christians who view the stories of the Old Testament as historical fact have come to be known as creationists, and many argue that the world was created by God just a few thousand years ago. “The Earth is not 6,000 or 10,000 years old,” Nye said in an interview with The Associated Press, citing scientists’ estimates that it is about 4.5 billion years old. “It’s not. And if that conflicts with your beliefs, I strongly feel you should question your beliefs.” Millions of Americans do hold those beliefs, according to a June Gallup poll that found 46 percent of Americans believe God created humans in their present form about 10,000 years ago.

The buses will leave around 7:30 a.m. and will return at the end of the school day.Students only paid an $8 entry fee to attend the festival, and another $6 for a choice lunch between a large turkey leg, pizza pie, bread bowl, or hamburgers. This event has been going on for several years, and has attracted all different types of people due to the endless hours of leisure activity. Shops in the marketplace have time-period clothing, jewelry, food, and other trinkets that may be purchased. Entertainment ranges from watching jugglers, sword fighters,fire breathers, jousting knights, performances in the muditorium, listening to festive music, getting tarot readings, and much more. “I am extremely intrigued and ecstatic about the enriching learning experience we will get from this field trip; it will be a most enjoyable way to educate myself,” said senior Megan Jones.



McDonald’s Student of the Week

BY SUMMER LITTLEJOHN Staff Writer PIQUA — Karen Horvath, the Spanish teacher at Piqua High School, and the Art Club members have been planning a mural to put in her room for four years, and they are finally being able to put the project into action. Horvath said it’s a “way to make the room bright without buying posters” and to “bring more culture into my room.” The Art Club members designed it with the help of Horvath’s personal posters she gave to them for inspiration, and they will be drawing and painting it all. Some of the designs will be a

Seth Fashner, the Art Club adviser at Piqua High School, said the mural is something to “benefit the school and community” and to “make the building look more appealing to students.” Megan Jones, a senior at Piqua High School and four year member in Art Club, expressed her

PIQUA — The McDonald’s Student of the Week for the week of Sept. 24 is Christy Graves. Graves is the daughter of Kerry and Tess Graves. Graves was nominated by teacher Gwen Stiver. She was nominated for the characteristics of loyalty, caring, trustworthiness, responsibility, diligence, integrity, honesty, respect and courage. “Christy was a student of mine in human bio last year,” Graves said. “She is an excellent role model, involved in basketball, works at Taco Bell, and finds time to still maintain excellent grades. She is always willing to help another student. Her smile is always a welcome sight.” Graves is involved in basketball, is a member of link crew, is a MH mentor, and is also involved in Student Council.

feelings about the mural. “It’s been a long four years of planning for this project and I’m relieved to finally be starting something so exciting,” she said. Senior Cara Long, a three-year Art Club member, had something to say as well about the mural. She said, “I’m pumped to finally be able to express my artistic abilities for something for the school.”

New German teacher appears at PHS BY ROBBY BLOOM Staff Writer PIQUA — Frau Elizabeth Rehlinger is the new German teacher at Piqua High School this year. Growing up the daughter of Yugoslavian parents, Rehlinger spoke German at home until she was in kindergarten. She went to many different colleges to get her education including YSU where she got her undergrad, Kent State where she got two masters’ degrees, California State San Bernardino, Ohio University, Akron, and Ashland.

Rehlinger loves Latin culture and art, and German culture and movies. She loves to travel and loves her Dachshund. Before teaching at PHS, Rehlinger taught at Kent Roosevelt High School, Boreman High School, Akron Manchester, Murrieta elementary and middle schools. Rehlinger can’t say anything negative about PHS, “It’s a world of possibilities,” she said. The year, for her, is going great and she is really enjoying it. When asked about a German Club she said, “I would love it.” She is cur-

Freshman/Senior sibs BY: EMILIE CAVINDER When making the transition from junior high to high school you may see a lot of faces you do not recognize. Five of our new freshmen have a senior who they not only see during school, but also see at home. This year’s pairs of freshmen/senior siblings are Lauren and Nathan Bosway, Quinton and Clayton Malone, Riley and Avery Pickrel, Samantha and Nick Neumeier, and Andrea and Connor Thobe. Having a senior sibling can be very helpful when making the transition from elementary school to freshman year. Freshman Clayton’s point of view is “It’s nice to see my bro in the halls because he is cool and everyone likes him.” Quinton had to agree. “It’s new to me to have a sibling here, but I like seeing him in the hallways.” Freshman Nick Neumeier is happy to be back at school with his older sister. “Since we both participate in band, I can annoy her whenever I want,” he said. “I can also keep an eye on all her boyfriends.” Big sister Samantha shot back: “I’m so glad I’m here for his first year in high school or else he would be completely lost!” It is obvious that these sibling pairs care about each other but there is always room for some goodnatured kidding.

Theme of the week BY: ALLY BERGMAN “What’s this week gonna be?”You may hear many students asking this question regarding this year’s Friday night football games. Each game now has a different theme attached to it. Neon, beach, and cowboy have been some of the unique themes thought up by students. Senior Emilie Cavinder came up with the idea of having a different theme for every game of the week, no matter if it’s home or away. “I thought it would be a good way to get more students to the games and Lexie Steineman and Julia Harrelson get them more involved,” she said. This idea certainly has inspired show their spirit on cowboy night more students to come out and support their school and the team. Cavinder even had the idea to create a Facebook group online so people could make suggestions and everyone could be kept in the know. The Lehman football players are excited about this too. Senior Defensive Tackle Quinton Malone says, “Seeing everyone come out to the game dressed up and excited gets me pumped and ready to dominate whoever we play!” Considering there are four games left in the regular season, there are many more themes to keep the Cavaliers motivated.

Hustle and heart BY: STEPHANY MCELDOWNEY Since June, the Lehman girls’ soccer team has been continuously working hard preparing for their season. All of that hard work finally started paying off. The girls soccer team has been Freshman Emily Reinhart kicks ranked fourth in the state! This was the first time that Lehman, or even any of the area schools, have ever been state ranked in soccer. Along with being state ranked, the team is also undefeated. This is a really big accomplishment for these ladies since everyone claimed that this was going to be a rebuilding year. Head Coach Tony Schroeder said, “My expectation for this year is dedicated hard work with serious effort, physically and mentally from this team. Winning is a result of these principles and because of that, I expect a lot of wins.” All of the freshman have stepped up their game and have been a great addition to the team. Freshman Sara Fuller said, “It is so much fun; I love playing with the upperclassmen. They are all so sweet and always look out for me.” Hopefully the Lady Cavs keep up their hard effort and continue to succeed. We wish them all the best of luck for the rest of the season.

Cavs for a Cure BY: KENNEDY MCIVER At Lehman, we have quite a few clubs so everyone can get involved in something. Since the majority of students have known some-one whose life has Ethan Jock, Sloane Glover, Katie been touched by a cancer diagnosis, one of the Rossman, and Stephanie Ulbrich at the August Relay more popular clubs is Cavs for a Cure. Some of the projects planned for this year include a Cavs for a Cure football game pink-out, Can Cancer, Field Day, and the Shelby County Relay next August. For Can Cancer, there are special bins around the school to collect aluminum cans. There is also a monthly collection in the Lehman parking lot so that the community can participate. At the spring Field Day, Cavs for a Cure members run carnival games and sell pop and snacks with the proceeds going to fight cancer. In order to accomplish the club’s goals, they need volunteers for these fundraisers. Interested students should contact Mrs. Hall or Mr. Harrmann, the club’s advisors. If being involved and working on projects with the shared purpose of helping others and stopping cancer, join the Cavs for a Cure.

Car plows into home in Troy Police report no one injured in Wednesday crash STAFF REPORT TROY — A vehicle driven by a Troy resident crashed into a home at 74 Westbrook Lane about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, but neither the driver nor homeowners were injured. According to Troy police reports, Edward Nagy, 76, of Troy, drove his fourdour Hyundai into a corner of the home owned by

Steve and Lu Ann Huels. Nagy’s car crash into the garage after he reportedly fell asleep at the wheel. “He said he thought he had dozed off,” said patrolman Tim Weaver. “He doesn’t really remember anything.” Weaver said alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Compared to other vecrashes, hicle-home Weaver said the home “is not as severely damaged as some I’ve seen.” The homeowners, a nurse and an EMT, were able to provide medical assistance, Weaver said.

‘Moon River’ crooner Andy Williams dies BRANSON, Mo. (AP) For the older OK, squarer side of the generation gap, Andy Williams was part of the soundtrack of the 1960s and ’70s, with easy-listening hits like “Moon River,” the “Love Story” theme a n d “ T h e M o s t Wonderful Time of t h e Ye a r ” from his beloved WILLIAMS Christmas TV specials. The singer known for his wholesome, middle-America appeal was the antithesis of the counterculture. “The old cliche says that if you can remember the 1960s, you weren’t there,” Williams once recalled. “Well, I was there all right, but my memory of them is blurred not by any drugs I took but by the relentless pace of the schedule I set myself.” The 84-year-old entertainer, who died Tuesday night at his Branson home following a yearlong battle with bladder cancer, outlasted many of the decade’s rock stars and fellow crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He remained on the charts into the 1970s and continued to perform into his 80s. Williams became a major star in 1956, the same year as Elvis Presley, with the Sinatra-like swing number “Canadian Sunset.” For a time, he was pushed into such Presley imitations as “Lips of Wine” and the No. 1

smash “Butterfly.” But he mostly stuck to what he called his “natural style” and kept it up throughout his career. In 1970, when even Sinatra had temporarily retired, Williams was in the top 10 with the theme from “Love Story,” the Oscar-winning tearjerker. He had 18 gold records, three platinum and five Grammy award nominations. Williams was also the first host of the live Grammy awards telecast and hosted the show for seven consecutive years, beginning in 1971. Movie songs became a specialty, including his signature “Moon River.” The longing Johnny MercerHenry Mancini ballad was his most famous song, even though he never released it as a single because his record company feared such lines as “my huckleberry friend” were too confusing and old-fashioned for teens. The song was first performed by Audrey Hepburn in the cherished 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” but Mancini thought “Moon River” ideal for Williams, who recorded it in “pretty much one take” and also sang it at the 1962 Academy Awards. Although “Moon River” was covered by countless artists, Williams made the song his personal brand. In fact, he insisted on it. “When I hear anybody else sing it, it’s all I can to do stop myself from shouting at the television screen, ‘No! That’s my song!’” Williams wrote in his 2009 memoir titled, fittingly, “Moon River and Me.”

Sheriff to take back unwanted prescription drugs


Troy police and fire departments responded to an accident where a car drove into a house Wednesday in Troy. The driver, Edward Nagy, of Troy, accelerated causing his two-year-old Hyundai to plow into the home of Steve and Lu Ann Huels at 74 Westbrook Lane, Troy just after 4 p.m. No injuries were reported.

cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines — flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. Four days after the first event, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the attorney general to accept them.

Medication take-back event Saturday TROY — From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday the Miami County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring medications for disposal to the Miami County Transfer Station at 2200 N. County Road 25-A. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April, Americans turned in 552,161 pounds— 276 tons—of prescription drugs at over 5,600 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,300 state and local law enforcement partners. In its four previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners took in over 1.5 million pounds—nearly 775 tons — of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, Sept. 28, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Tomorrow, the only Full Moon in Aries all year will take place. This is why you feel your emotions building up within you today, especially when relating to partners and close friends. Easy does it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Tension with co-workers could be building today because of the pending Full Moon tomorrow. Just grin and bear it. Be patient and tolerant with everyone. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Tomorrow’s Full Moon could create some conflict between you and others, especially in group situations. You might be impatient with people in a meeting, or vice versa. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Because the Moon is your ruler, naturally you feel the emotional buildup today before tomorrow’s Full Moon. This means you have to be patient with authority figures. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign because of the pending Full Moon, which takes place tomorrow. Keep your mind on what you’re doing. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid arguments and disputes about shared property, loans, inheritances and cash flow. Today and tomorrow are very poor times for these discussions. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Tomorrow, the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year will take place. This is the classic indication of tension between partners and spouses. Patience is your ally. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your dealings with co-workers and customers might be challenging today. Just accept this and do the best you can. By Monday it will be a whole new story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Parents should be extra vigilant about their children, because the Full Moon will trigger some tension today that could be accident-prone for your kids. Keep your eyes open! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Today you will feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your job and career. You can’t keep everyone happy. (And you can’t ignore your career right now.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be mindful of everything you do and say today, because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. Avoid arguments, and don’t try to coerce others into agreeing with you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a poor day to dispute discrepancies about bills, taxes, insurance matters, banking figures or shared property. Postpone all of this until Monday. YOU BORN TODAY You have a seductive charm that pleases others and makes you popular. You have taste and elegance, and are very romantic. For these reasons, many of you have passionate, romantic lives! Nevertheless, family is important to you. In fact, you are extremely loyal to loved ones. Your year ahead will be highly social and beneficial for all of your relationships. Birthdate of: Brigitte Bardot, actress; Naomi Watts, actress; Marcello Mastroianni, actor.

Four Turns

Tracks on Tap

WIN Denny Hamlin’s win 1 inMILESTONE Loudon was the 100th Cup victory

SPRINT CUP SERIES Track: Dover International Speedway Race: AAA 400 Location: Dover, Del. When: Sunday, Sept. 30 TV: ESPN (1:00 p.m. EST) Layout: 1-mile oval Banking/Turns: 24 degrees Banking/Straightaways: 9 degrees June Winner: Jimmie Johnson Crew Chief’s Take: “Dover is a high-banked, one-mile oval that is similar at both ends. It’s also a concrete track with several grooves. Goodyear has a new tire that puts a lot of rubber down and makes for very slick spots on the track. Cars drive over a hump at both corner entries that unloads tires and makes corner entry a big challenge. Most drivers would say it’s a real ‘driver’s track.’ Dover has made significant improvements to pit road in the last year, which has helped the pit crews.”

for Joe Gibbs Racing. JGR’s first triumph in NASCAR’s premier series came on the biggest of stages, in the 1993 Daytona 500 with Dale Jarrett. In the 18 years since, Tony Stewart (32 victories with JGR), Hamlin (22), Bobby Labonte (21) and Kyle Busch (20) have combined for 95 triumphs in JGR sheet metal.

Denny Hamlin follows through, wins Chase race in New Hampshire By MATT TALIAFERRO Athlon Sports Racing Editor

FORDS Through two 2 FLOUNDERING Chase events, the Blue Oval gang’s performance has been largely forgettable. Roush Fenway Racing’s Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth spent a large part of NASCAR’s 26-race regular season ranked in the top 3 in the championship standings. In the Chase, however, no Ford driver has scored a top-10 finish. Biffle (13th) was the highest finishing Ford driver at Chicagoland, while Kenseth led the charge at New Hampshire (14th). SWEEP Austin Dillon 3 BLUEGRASS scored the win in Saturday’s Kentucky 300 Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway. The win was Dillon’s second of the season — and second of his career — with both coming at the 1.5-mile tri-oval in Sparta, Ky. Dillon’s No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevy has led 257 of a possible 400 laps at the facility this season. AT THE TOP ... WITHOUT THE 4 TIGHT CHASE James Buescher recorded his fourth win of the 2012 Camping World Truck Series campaign. The win moved Buescher to within four markers of points leader Ty Dillon. Timothy Peters and Parker Kligerman are also within 30 points of the top spot. In the Nationwide Series, 19 points separate the top three positions held by Elliott Sadler, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Austin Dillon.

It appeared Denny Hamlin had a good idea that he would win the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Or at least run well. Maybe. Actually, it’s hard to know exactly what he was thinking leading up to the second race of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup. After dropping from a top-10 finish to 16th with an empty fuel tank the previous week at Chicagoland Speedway, Hamlin tweeted, “This is 1 week of 10. We will win next week.” Most took it as a prediction; a called-shot of sorts. And why not? Since his Sprint Cup Series debut in 2005, Hamlin has shown a flare for NASCAR’s flat tracks, registering 10 of his 22 career wins on the minimally-banked facilities in Loudon, N.H., Martinsville, Va., Phoenix, Ariz. and Pocono, Penn. At the least it was a bold statement, even from a driver touted as a title favorite. However, Hamlin clarified his social-media sentiment on Friday, when he again took to Twitter, saying, “Not really sure what all the buzz in the media is about my tweet last week. I didn’t guarantee, didn’t promise, just made a statement.” The theme persisted in his media availability later in the day, when he stated that, “I’ve had confidence before and I said at Pocono and different race tracks (that), ‘I expect to win’ — and it’s no different. Given our history here, given how we ran the first practice and hopefully how we run tomorrow, I’ll expect to win.” Regardless of what it was, Hamlin backed it up on Sunday. Starting 32nd due to incorrect air pressure in his tires during qualifying, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver sliced through the field after the green flag waved. By lap 30 he had entered the top 15, and 64 laps later took the point, passing teammate Kyle Busch. From there, the rout was on, as Hamlin led 193 of the final 206 laps to earn his series-best fifth victory of

the season. In the process, he vaulted to within seven points of championship leader Jimmie Johnson. “Once we got to about lap 50 and started working our way to sixth, seventh position, I knew that we had the winning car,” Hamlin said. To find anyone else in the field that thought different would be a tall order. Second- and third-place finishers Johnson and Jeff Gordon could only shake there heads in retrospect. “No,” was Gordon’s definitive response when asked if anyone had anything for Hamlin’s Toyota. “I don’t think that thing bobbled all day.” “Never slipped,” Johnson concurred. The only reason for concern on Hamlin’s part — and hope on Johnson’s — came when NASCAR threw a yellow flag for debris with 26 laps remaining. Hamlin, who enjoyed a nearly six-second lead at the time, could only show his disgust

I On Monday, Furniture Row Racing an-

nounced that Kurt Busch had been hired to drive the team’s No. 78 Chevy during the 2013 Sprint Cup season. Busch will replace Regan Smith, who joined FRR at the beginning of the 2009 season. “Though we have made strides as a resourceful singlecar Sprint Cup team, we are not where we want to be, which led us to the difficult decision of making a driver change as we move forward,” said Furniture Row Racing’s general manager Joe Garone. “Kurt’s exceptional driving talent has the capacity to take a team to another level. We

over the team’s in-car radio. “Really, I don’t understand why they do this,” he complained after his spotter informed him that a caution had been thrown for “phantom debris.” Hamlin got the jump on the lap 278 restart, though, and quickly pulled away for the 2.67-second win. “I had a little bit of hope for just, you know, a quarter of a lap there,” Johnson said of possibly wresting the lead from Hamlin on the final restart. “And then it was like, ‘Uhoh, don’t lose second.’ And then pulled away from Jeff and got going from there.” And with victory claimed and burnouts complete, Hamlin threw one final “called-shot” innuendo into play — furthering the “did he or didn’t he” question — striking a Babe Ruth, circa 1932, home run pose after completing victory burnouts on the frontstretch. Message: Delivered.

look forward to having Kurt join our Denverbased organization and feel his racing experience will play an important role as we plan ahead to 2013.” Busch signed a one-year contract with Phoenix Racing prior to the 2012 season following his release from Penske Racing in Dec. 2011. Smith revealed last weekend that he would not be returning to FRR. Smith has one win with the organization, which came in the 2011 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. He is currently 23rd in the Sprint Cup point standings.

Dover International Speedway Junie Donlavey fielded entries for over 50 years in NASCAR’s top division — from Joe Weatherly and LeeRoy Yarbrough to Ricky Rudd and Ken Schrader and a host of drivers in between — but his Dover mount in May 1981 might have been his most memorable. Jody Ridley drove Donlavey’s No. 90 Ford to victory in the Mason-Dixon 500 that day, scoring both men’s lone Cup victory. Neil Bonnett, Cale Yarborough and David Pearson all took turns at the front, but each dropped an engine while leading. Ridley finally emerged with the lead — although Bobby Allison’s car owner, Harry Ranier, claimed that NASCAR’s timing and scoring had incorrectly placed Ridley ahead of his No. 28 Buick — and led the final 20 laps to score an unlikely win over Allison, Dale Earnhardt, D.K. Ulrich and Rudd.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Jimmie Johnson dominated Dover in June and has finished second in the two Chase races thus far. Pretty Solid Pick: Matt Kenseth has finished outside of the top 5 at Dover only once in his last nine visits. Good Sleeper Pick: Might this be the week that Kevin Harvick wakes up? He was second here in June. Runs on Seven Cylinders: Denny Hamlin admits that Dover is his worst Chase track. You’ve been warned. Insider Tip: The gap between Johnson and Kenseth and the rest of the field is a sizable one.

Johnson, Chad Kanus and the boys have methodically clicked off consecutive second-place finishes to begin the Chase. Next up is Dover, where the 48 dominated in June. Much of the talk since Sunday’s New Hampshire event has centered on Denny Hamlin being Johnson’s biggest threat. Oh, how quickly we forget about Keselowski’s big win in Chicago. Hamlin has certainly earned a spot among the elite on this list. However, mistakes like running out of fuel in Chicago and the tire pressure issue during qualifying in Loudon raise red flags. Hasn’t shown the pop of the preceding three, but neither has anyone else. That said, Bowyer is rolling along with consecutive runs of first, 10th and fourth. Kahne has come out firing in the Chase with a pair of top-5 runs. Unfortunately for the 5 team, it hasn’t shown the speed to keep up with the team housed in the same complex. Junior, who has enjoyed a top-5 ranking in the standings all season, suddenly finds himself stuck in seventh since the Chase reset — and 26 points in the hole to Johnson. Gordon’s last five races: Third, second, second, stuck throttle, third. The problem? That stuck throttle resulted in a 35th-place bomb and has the team wondering what could have been. Stewart’s average finish in the four races preceding Richmond: 25.0. Since: 5.6. Funny how since the Chase came into play, he’s abandoned the summer for the fall. Harvick’s finishing position has improved from 12.3 to 9.5 since Gil Martin was brought back as the crew chief. That’s nice, but at this rate it’s not going to win a championship. A noticable drop in performance within the Ford camp finds Kenseth — who spent the majority of the regular season in the top 3 in the standings — reeling near the bottom of the Chase. Will have to do better than ninth- and 17th-place runs if he’s to keep the dream alive. In hindsight, wrecks at Atlanta and Bristol may be what’s keeping the 39 team from contending. See: Kenseth, Matt. After leading 48 laps in Loudon the engine went sour. That was almost too easy to predict. Nothing flashy here, as Menard chugs along averaging a 14.9-place finish throughout the season. Carl Edwards, Sam Hornish Jr., Joey Logano, Mark Martin, Brian Vickers

Piqua faces strong Rams defense Friday BY ROB KISER Sports Editor When you talk about defending Division II state champ i o n Trotwood-Madison’s football team, it has to start with the defense. Led by four Division I college signees, the Rams defense has carried them to a 3-2 start. And don’t be fooled by the record — those two losses are to a strong Florida team and Wayne. The Rams will visit Alexander Stadium/Purk Field Friday in the GWOC North opener for both teams. “If not the best, MIKE ULLERY/CALL FILE PHOTO

Slusher moves on for Covington boys GREENVILLE — Covington’s Samuel Slusher also advanced to the D-III district golf tournament Tuesday at Turtle Creek, along with the Russia team. As reported Wednesday, the Raiders won the sectional to advance to district, while Lehman’s John Copella (80) and Houston’s Jaron Howard (87) advanced as individuals out of the Beechwood sectional. Slusher shot 83 to advance as an individual from Turtle Creek. The district tournament is Thursday at Weatherwax Golf Course in West Middletown.

WEBSTER — Versailles and Covington handled the adverse weather conditions Wednesday at the Division III girls golf sectional at Stillwater Valley Golf Course better than most, as both teams advanced on to next week’s district tournament. Versailles won the competition at Stillwater Valley Golf Course with 403,

while Covington was fourth with 415. The Lady Tigers edged Springfield Shawnee by a stroke in the team competition. Versailles scores were Brooke Wehrkamp 99, Elizabeth White 99, Danielle Cochran 100, Katie Heckman 105 and Hannah Niekamp 110. “It was really tough conditions,” Covington coach Ron Schultz said about a long day that included two lightning delays. “It was beautiful when we started and it wasn’t five minutes before the skies opened up and the wind picked up.” Covington was led by the Ingle sisters. Medalist on the day was 90 and Allison Ingle shot 93 and Cassie Ingle shot 94. “They were both right there with the medalist,” Schultz said. “We have a pattern of making it out every other year, but this is the third time in four years we have advanced as a team. Cassie went as an individual as a sophomore, so she is the first Covington girls golfer to make it to district all four years.”

Other Covington scores were Jamie Crowell 111, Katie Blair 117 and Jessie Crowell 121. The district tournament is next Wednesday at Pipestone Golf Course in Miamisburg. Versailles and Covington will be joined by Lindsey Black of Graham, who qualified as an individual Monday at the Xenia WGC sectional with an 89. Russia finished sixth Wednesday with a 430 total, while Miami East finished eighth with a 476 total. Russia’s scores were Taylor Borchers 102, Angie Muhlenkamp 108, Alex Counts 109, Gina Barlage 111 and Morgan Daugherty 119. Miami East’s top four were Tori Nuss 104, Macaleh Thompson 116, Sam Denlinger 122, Jeni Sloane 134 and Kiera Fellers 139.

Cavaliers keep things simple Find succes on offense by cutting down playbook BY KEN BARHORST Civitas Media SIDNEY — Lehman’s coaching staff decided to take a machete to the offensive playbook last week and cut down the number of plays the Cavaliers run. Head coach Dick Roll said it was a success, and it would be hard to argue the point after his team routed Riverside last week for its second win of the season. “It was nice to get a win,” said the veteran coach of the 44-0 victory. That point total was almost twice as many points as the Cavaliers scored in their first four games combined, two of which ended in shutouts. “The kids responded well to the difference in our offense,” said Roll. “Our win and the win by Waynesfield gives us a chance to accomplish some of the things we talked about. It gives the kids something to play for and you always want that.” Waynesfield opened

some eyes last week by going to Fort Loramie and coming away with a 28-20 win over a Redskins team that had beaten Lehman 35-0 the previous week. Now the Cavaliers get Waynesfield, on the road, Friday night, and it’s suddenly a key Northwest Central Conference game, for both teams. Lehman is 1-1 in the NWCC, and Waynesfield is at 2-0 after winning for the third week in a row last week. The Tigers did it with amazing ball control, which really showed itself in the fourth quarter. After Fort Loramie had scored at the end of the third quarter to cut the lead to 28-20, Waynesfield kept the ball for nine minutes and 30 seconds to start the final period before turning the ball over on downs. So dominant was Waynesfield’s time of possession that when Fort Loramie got the ball back with 2:30 left in the game, See LEHMAN/Page 15

Playing an even front, the Rams have allowed a total of six points in their three wins. “They are blitzing a little more than they have in the past,” Nees said. “What it has done has allowed them to get away with some of the issues they have had at quarterback. “That’s where the question mark was for them going into the season. One guy got hurt and now they have settled on number 12 (Kendric Mallory, a converted receiver) at quar-

terback.” Another plus for the Rams is the running back combo of senior Isreal Green (5-8, 202), who had a huge game in the state championship game last year and junior Ashton Jackson (5-10, 181). Green is on pace for another 1,000 yard season, having rushed for 496 in five games. “They like to run the ball,” Nees said. “They probably run 75 percent of the time.” Piqua is coming off a tough 55-0 loss to the Springboro, the Indians third loss to a stateranked team in the season. “What happens when you play a schedule like that is you get some injuries,” Nees said. “But, I think we will be alright.” And the game with Springboro did not start out as a one-sided game. Piqua had two opportunities to get off the field on the Panthers first drive and then missed an opportunity for a big play on the

Indians second play of the game offensively. “Momentum is a big thing in high school football,” Nees said. “Things just kind of go down the line from there.” And Nees has a good idea what the Indians need to do Friday night. “We need some explosive plays on offense,” he said. “When our offensive plays well, our defense seems to play well, instead of the other way around.” Part of doing that will be getting a running game that is averaging less than a 100 yards per game, untracked. “We can’t go in there thinking we are going to be one dimensional,” Nees said. And the Indians gave Trotwood its biggest scare a year ago, leading until the final 30 seconds in a controversial finish. “I think we played well against them on offense last year,” Nees said. Something the Indians will need to repeat on Friday night.

“They run the dive option and most of the time Hennon keeps the ball. But as soon as you ignore the quarterback and the pitch, that’s what they will do. “It’s a big game for us, the opportunity to play for something down the line,” he added. “It’s a critical game in the league, and we’re going in with the idea that we can play with them, no doubt about it. “You look at the 35-0 loss to Loramie and that’s not indicative of our team. We just didn’t play well

that night.” For the second time this season, Lehman’s game had to be suspended on Friday night because of the weather, and for the second time, the game was completed on the field at Lehman High School instead of Sidney Memorial Stadium, where both games started. “I think it’s good from the standpoint that we have two more games on that field (Sidney) and we don’t want to tear it up,” said Roll.

Lehman Continued from page 14 it had run just three plays the entire second half. “That’s what we used to do,” said Roll. “We were ball control. We just have to figure out a way to stop it. They don’t do anything fancy. They just execute. Their quarterback is a nice player and does good things, and he keeps plays going.” The Tigers like to hand the ball off to Gabe Hennon, a 200-pound running back. “He’s a stud,” said Roll.
