Foundation to host Gusting winds in forecast annual celebration Event to take place Saturday, Oct. 29 Editor’s Note: This is the first of a three-part series on the history of the Piqua Education Foundation and its upcoming Celebration of Education dinner. PIQUA — The Piqua Education Foundation will hold it’s annual Celebration of Education dinner, Jerseys and Jeans, at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Piqua Country Club. This yearly event will honor the Piqua City School Teacher of the Year as well as recognizing the accomplishments of many of its students. The Piqua Education Foundation was initiated in 1984. Charter members included Clifford Alexander, William Barger, Roy DePriest, Douglas Hulme, D.V.M., William McNeil, Duane Bachman, Cornelia Tinkler and Jared Reitz, who wanted to establish scholarships for Piqua High School students to help pay for higher education. The Piqua Education Foundation (PEF) is a non-profit organization that seeks contributions to benefit students in Piqua City Schools. It provides scholarships for deserving students and gives education grants to encourage teacher and student creativity and achievement. Ohio ranks 36th in the nation with 28 percent of individuals receiving fouryear degrees, according to a recent study. Providing funds for PHS students to attend college is a way to improve that statistic. Cliff Alexander, one of the founders of PEF, said “I’ve always felt that education was the key. To assist in providing for continuing education is the best thing we can do for Piqua’s future.” Alexander said that the first year that PEF was able to provide “maybe $20,000 in scholarship money.” Today the Piqua Education Foundation has awarded more than $220,000 to help 161 students. Through

the years, the list of donors has continued to grow. One of the earliest large donations came from Niels Lundgard Trust Fund. Mr. Lundgard founded Aerovent Inc. in 1932. He had purchased Piqua Electric Manufacturing Co. and along with Martin Bauer, led the new company, Aerovent, to become a leader in the application of fan technology and industrial ventilation. It all began after Mr. Lundgard migrated to Ohio to work as a pattern maker in the early 1920s. He had worked his way around the world more than once as a ship’s carpenter apprentice and worked in the auto industry on the east coast before coming to Piqua. After a number of years here working in the air moving industry, he decided to form his own business with Mr. Bauer. Mr. Lundgard was President of Aerovent until his death in 1973. Through the years, the Lundgard Trust has provided more than $600,000 to assist Piqua students to go on to higher education. A Celebration of Piqua Education is an evening to promote the positive accomplishments of the students and staff from Piqua and a way to say thank you to the loyal supporters of the PEF. Your support will allow the PEF to continue to provide financial assistance to deserving high school graduates to help ensure their collegiate pursuits. Reservations for Jerseys and Jeans may be made by contacting Mindy Greggerson at 773-4321 or by The cost is $50 per person. The event will be from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Piqua Country Club. Dress is casual and all are encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey or other sports apparel. Proceeds from this event are donated to the Piqua Education Foundation, PEF a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to selected graduating seniors and postgraduates, educational grants to teachers, and supports special activities for Piqua City School students.

Letters to the Editor

Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18 (NIV)

e recently spent six days without power, and the experience has left me with a new respect for the pioneers. Was the worst part going without lights? No, we had some old-fashioned hurricane lamps for that. We walked around the house after dark, and it looked like we were in a Dickens tale brought to life. Was the worst part going without the electric stove and microwave? No, I could cook on the outdoor grill. I’m much better at it now. There are some things that were a challenge — say, pasta — but we didn’t starve to death. Was living without a fridge and a freezer the worst part? No. Except for throwing away a lot of stuff that should have been thrown away a few years ago — halfempty bottles of novelty condiments, such as garlicpeach jam, and moldy cheese rinds — I wouldn’t say it was a crushing loss. Plus, the freezer got a good defrosting. When future archaeologists dig up the remains of our civilization thousands of years from now, there is no doubt that abandoned freezers will be some of their most treasured finds. “Why did they chop up their dead and wrap them in small pieces and place them in these large, white, metal coffins?” they might wonder after discovering a freezer long after all food had turned to dust. “All we are finding is bones and pizza boxes and something called ‘vanilla ice cream.’ Was that something they put on their faces? Was the other food put in there to give the dead something to eat in JIM MULLEN the afterlife? What does Columnist ‘pepperoni’ mean?” Was the worst part going without cellphone chargers, iPods, iPads, routers, DVRs, TV, wireless speakers, backup drives, printers, air conditioners, treadmills, the washer and the dryer? No. The second-worst part was going without coffee. When will someone make a battery-powered coffeemaker? Lucky for me, I have an adapter in my car that plugs into the cigarette lighter and has a standard threeprong plug at the other end. After two mornings without coffee, I finally took the coffeemaker out to the car and made coffee in the passenger seat. I learned several handy things from this. First, turn on the car, or you might drain the battery the way I did. Second, don’t put the coffee machine on the passenger seat. What a mess. It also hit me that every car is a generator. A lot of people run out and buy generators when the power goes out. And what do they use to go get those gas-run generators? Their 300-horsepower, gas-run car. Surely there must be some simple way to turn the car in the driveway into a generator for the home when needed. After all, isn’t that what an RV does? But the worst thing about having no power was no flush toilets, as our water comes from an electrically powered well. (If it had been winter, the worst thing might have been having no heat.) We suddenly found all kinds of reasons to leave the house. We went to the movies a lot that week. Without a fridge, we had to go to the grocery store a lot and use its facilities. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner out frequently. The only restrooms we would never use were at gas stations. Remember when gas stations used to brag about their clean restrooms? That has gone the way of checking your oil and washing your windshield. Sometimes I wonder where the cashiers go to the bathroom. Certainly not where they work, or they would notice there are no paper towels, the sink looks like someone was panning for gold in it and the toilet, well, welcome to the Third World. Finally, the power came back on and things got back to normal. But we’ve had more frequent and longer power outages the last few years than I remember. Maybe this is the new normal.

To the Editor: There is an old belief that there is “no such thing as a free lunch.” There is always a string attached, or something that makes that “free” lunch far from free and often more expensive than buying lunch for yourself. The offer of nearly half the cost of building three new elementary schools in Piqua is certainly not a totally “free” lunch, but with any added operation cost already covered in the “maintenance” portion of the tax levy, there really are no “strings” attached to that offer from the Ohio School Facilities Commission. What you see is what you get, and it amounts to darn near a half-price sale on those brand new school buildings. I like the title of the campaign brochure used by the campaign committee. “Chance of a Lifetime” is a phrase that gets used a lot in many areas of life. However with that offer of 47 percent of the costs being conditioned on our accepting it within one year, this does really seem to be a “take it or quickly lose it” offer. It would be unfortunate if we missed out on this chance and sentenced ourselves to pouring tons of money into operating steadily-aging buildings before we had to bite the bullet and eventually pay 100 percent of the cost to replace our elementary buildings. There are other factors in play as we consider this vote. Having all of our elementary kids in stateof- the- art facilities regardless of where they live in the district; low interest rates for our borrowing, possible job creation, and just some downright “bragging rights” all play some role. Nobody really wants to pay higher property taxes. That’s for sure, but this opportunity to get all three buildings at essentially half-price is sure one that makes sense. —Gordon and Susie Wise Piqua

Harry Potter studio to open for public tour

Trash talking creates a stink after warring couple reconciles

JILL LAWLESS Associated Press

DEAR ABBY: When my son “Lyle” told my husband and me that his wife, “Becky,” was leaving him and taking their kids where he would not be able to see them, we were shocked. Lyle consulted an attorney, filed for divorce that day, and got a restraining order to keep Becky from running off with the kids. We begged them to go to counseling. As things progressed, Lyle learned about several of Becky’s affairs, her drug use and her chronic lying, and told us every awful, shocking detail. He also made sure our entire family knew about his lying, cheating, conniving wife. As talk began to circulate around our family, my husband told Lyle he knew from the beginning that all the things he had been told about Becky were true. Well, today my son announced to us that he and Becky are back together! We are stunned. Abby, please warn people who are considering divorce to keep their mouths shut, because spreading dirt helps no one and can cause real problems later. Any advice on how to deal with this mess now? — WISH WE WERE NEVER TOLD

WATFORD, England (AP) — The magical world of Harry Potter is being meticulously reassembled at a former aerodrome near London. The collection of sheds and sound stages is where the eight films were shot over the course of a decade, and soon they will be home to the official “Making of Harry Potter” studio tour. With more than five months to go until the tour’s March 31 opening — advance tickets go on sale Thursday — stonemasons in hard hats are busy laying the (real) flagstone floor of the Great Hall at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Even half-finished, its Gothic arches, gargoyles and huge fireplace are an impressive sight. When it’s completed, studio Warner Bros. hopes it will be, well, magic. Movies are all about illusion, but creators of this tour are keen to stress its authenticity. The 150,000square-foot (14,000square-meter) site will include only authentic sets, props and costumes, on the original studio site 20 miles (30 kilometers) northwest of London. For the movies’ cast, who spent a decade working here — the younger ones growing up on set — it can still evoke powerful feelings of nostalgia. “I get shudders down my spine every time I walk back in there,” said Tom Felton, the 24-yearold actor who played Harry’s Muggle-hating Hogwarts rival, Draco Malfoy. “Immediately, as soon as you go back it just fires up a decade’s worth of memories. “I remember the first

(Director) Chris Columbus specifically didn’t want us to see it before filming, because we were only 11-year-old kids. So, our reaction when we walked in there was pretty much genuine.” The vast Great Hall, where hundreds of Hogwarts pupils dined, celebrated, and were divided into houses by the mysterious Sorting Hat, will be the centerpiece of the tour, but there will be plenty more to delight Potter fans. Re-erected sets will include the cupboard under the stairs where Harry was forced to sleep by his miserly relatives, the Dursleys; the imposing Ministry of Magic; headmaster Albus Dumbledore’s book-lined office; and Hogwarts’ class-

The existing stages here at Leavesden Studios are A through I. As well as the sets, visitors will learn how the series’ magical creatures were created in the studios’ workshops, and see some of the 200 shipping containers full of props that producers have kept from the films. The eight Potter films made here between 2000 and 2010 were a mini-industry in themselves, employing both the cream of Britain’s acting talent and hundreds of craftspeople and technicians.

actor Mark Williams who played Arthur Weasley, father of Harry’s best friend Ron. “You’d go on set and go, ‘Bloody hell, it works!’ “I think people will be amazed about what was created as a physical prop rather than fixed later in the computer,” added Warwick Davis, who played Hogwarts charms master Prof. Filius Flitwick and the goblin Griphook. “Certainly for me, the filming experience on these was quite different to the work I’d done on ‘Star Wars,’ in the sense that stuff was here and real,” said Davis, who appeared in both “Return of the Jedi” and “The Phantom Menace.” “George Lucas would’ve built the first six feet of wall and left the rest to the computer.” Filming on the final Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” finished last year, and it was released in July, to a global wave of emotion from fans. The studio tour is a way to keep the Harry Potter machine running — but to be a success, it must avoid feeling like a cynical cashin. “I hope people will come on the sets and feel the warmth on the sets, and the experiences that have been here,” said Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the films. “They’re really lived in, all the sets. They don’t feel just like a studio, they do feel like a world.”

DEAR WISH: While I’m not a doctor, I am prescribing a healthy dose of collective amnesia for your family. It’s the only way you’ll be able to look Becky in the eye. Your son was lining up allies when he trashed her. Whether or not what he said about her was true or exaggerated, no one will regard her — or him — quite the way they did. What a shame. DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law, “Bernice,” hasn’t spoken to me since her son and I were married four years ago. We got along well prior to the wedding, but because I didn’t let her make major decisions in the wedding she stopped speaking to me. I have done everything I can to mend our relationship — sent her letters of apology, birthday gifts, etc. — still no response. My husband is in the middle. I have really had it with Bernice and don’t want to try to mend fences with her any longer, but my husband is


Advice very close to his mom and wants me to keep trying. What can I do? Please help. — DAUGHTER-INLAW DILEMMA DEAR DAUGHTERIN-LAW: Your husband isn’t in the middle. His mother has been trying to push you out in left field for four years, and he is unwilling to put his foot down and stop her. If you’re smart, you will take the high road and continue with the gifts on special occasions. With luck, she’ll continue to ignore them and you won’t have to tolerate her. A mother-in-law who carries a grudge and thinks her “suggestions” are ironclad is a bona fide burden. Be glad you don’t have to suffer her presence, and keep your fingers crossed. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I are the parents of three young boys — ages 11, 8 and 3. My wife often walks around our bedroom and bathroom naked, or topless with lacy underpants. I feel it is inappropriate for her to walk around in this manner and that she should take care to cover up, especially in front of the older boys. What do you think? — BLUSHING IN SAN JOSE, CALIF. DEAR BLUSHING: Although families have different standards regarding nudity, I think a touch of modesty is the best policy. If your wife enjoys being nude or topless in the confines of your bedroom and bathroom, she should keep the door shut, and ask that the boys knock and ask permission before entering.

1. Three hearts. First, let’s consider the meaning of partner’s three-club bid. He presumably is trying to get to game (or possibly a slam), has some length in clubs and wants to know whether you have a minimum or a maximum for your raise to two hearts. The normal range for that bid is six to 10 points, and it’s now up to you to indicate more precisely how good or bad your raise was. Here, with eight highcard points but no distributional values, you are in the middle of the range. The deciding factor is that you have no help for part-

The difference between this hand and the preceding one is that here you have the queen of clubs instead of the queen of spades. The club queen is almost certain to be useful to partner, and you might miss a sound game if you bid only three hearts and partner passed. 3. Four clubs.

Empty nest? Not all parents are sad about it NEW YORK (AP) Pamela Reilly and her husband have big plans that don’t include moping when their three teens finally fly the coop over the next two years. She and husband Terry, with a fourth child grown and gone, hope to downsize and leave Indianapolis for more rural, sunny climes. They’re dreaming about touring Costa Rica and Baja Mexico on motorcycles. She’s considering a return to school to become a physician’s assistant or a nurse practitioner. “We definitely fall into the category of parents who will be celebrating their children’s successes instead of mourning the fact that we have an empty nest,” said the 46-year-old Reilly, a doctoral student in naturopathic medicine. “Having an empty nest doesn’t mean you have an empty life. At least it shouldn’t.” Have the dark days of “empty nest syndrome” brightened among today’s parents, or has juggling two careers on tight budgets with over-busy kids left them so stressed out and childcentric that they have no energy or skills left to navigate their lives alone? What about all those helicopter moms? How will they fare in their empty nests after years of

applying Ivy League educations to afterschool spreadsheets filled with soccer, test prep and music classes? First your kids crawl, then they drive, then they leave. Why isn’t that a good thing? “Not all parents experience empty nest,” said psychologist Joseph Cilona, a parenting specialist in Manhattan. But the helicopters, he said, those parents who “tend to be controlling and micro-manage their child’s life, are at a much greater risk for negative emotions such as deep feelings of loss and sadness when children leave home.” No twinges of sorrow in Bentonville, Ark, for mom of five Pamela Haven and her husband, Jeff. She has a recurring thought about life after the last of the brood 17-year-old twin boys graduate high school in June: “Thank God they weren’t triplets!” Up next? “We’re booked on a cruise right after school ends, just the two of us. We’re purchasing a travel trailer, and we can’t wait to strip down the upstairs and repaint, carpet and make two guest rooms.” Also looking forward to life after children is Jeanette Simpson, an interior designer in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. She has

Parents of collegebound kids deal with “empty nest syndrome” in different ways. six kids (no boomerangers in the bunch) and the last is a high school senior. “After 27 years of dealing with school schedules, and 33 years of kids at home, I’ll be an empty nester in less than a year,” she said. “With the last one, I feel almost guilty about not being overly saddened. I have a feeling of ‘job well done.’” What’s she looking forward to the most? Traveling with her hubby without worry about school breaks and, “Time for myself, something that’s been rare since the first one came along.” Carl Hindy, a marriage counselor in Nashua, N.H., knows empty nests don’t always start off smoothly. Those who seek guidance are led in part by working couples who have had little

time to indulge their marriages. “Couples come to counseling feeling they’ve grown so far apart and don’t know what to do now that the proverbial product has shipped,” he said. With three ranging from 14 to 18, marketer Charity HisleZierten near Atlanta can’t wait to ship some product and start enjoying some me time. “I cannot imagine that I will have empty nest syndrome,” she said. “I’m truly looking forward to experiencing the rest of my life. I started very young, pregnant as a senior in high school, and I have never experienced life without the responsibility of three human beings weighing me down.” Don’t get her wrong. “I love my children dearly, but I have raised

them to be independent for a reason. I want them to grow up and be happy, contributing members of society.” Jolyn Brand, an education consultant in suburban Houston, has seen her share of weepy parents dropping kids off at college. What they don’t consider, she said, is the guilt their tears whip up in their children during that crucial time when they’re just taking flight. “I’m always baffled by the parents who are enormously saddened,” said the mother of four, ranging from 8 to 17. Her oldest is college-bound next fall. “Sure, we all love our children and we’ll miss them, but we’ve been preparing them for 18 years to be independent and leave the nest.”

YWCA takes part in Week without Violence activities PIQUA — The YWCA Piqua will be collecting paper products in “The Big Orange Barrel” for the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County during the month of October as part of the Week without Violence activities. According to Leesa Baker, executive director, the YWCA has been collecting and donating items for a number of years. “The community has always been very supportive of this effort. We have been able to contribute many items each year which help many women and their families through the Abuse Shelter.” Items especially needed this year include paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, foil, etc.). “Towel sets (new or gently used) are always a welcome thing as we help our clients get out on their own,” said Barbie Holman, director of the Abuse Shelter. The YWCA Piqua has also been collecting old cell phones for the Miami County Family Abuse Shelter since March 2004. To date, more than 2,200 phones have been given to the shelter. This year-round project also adds support to women through the abuse shelter. “The abuse shelter is very grateful for all of the donations of cell phones throughout the year,” Holman said. Donated phones are reprogrammed to 911 and given to victims of domestic violence. The donation of a cell phone allows victims to call local law enforcement should they need immediate help. The YWCA Piqua is a designated drop off location for the Miami County Family Abuse Shelter. Leah Baumhauer, YWCA public policy chairperson, commented that “The YWCA Piqua collects the cell phones as a part of its mission statement to empower women.” Donations continue to be accepted for this on-going program. Even cell phones that do not work or do not have a charger are accepted. Phones not used at this shelter can be sold and the monies used to benefit the Miami County Family Abuse Shelter. Be sure to clear all personal information from the phone and, if possible, include the phone’s charger. Look for the donation box in the lobby at the YWCA Piqua at 418 N. Wayne St., Piqua. “This is a great way for individuals, businesses and industries to feel good about helping others instead of leaving the phone on the shelves at home or work,” said Gretchen Roeth, public relations director of the YWCA Piqua. “Another big part of Week Without Violence is a program that we co-sponsor with the Piqua Police Department, Safe-Kids Connection,” added Kim Small, program director. The one-hour class will be presented on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for K-5th-graders along with their parent(s). Membership is not required and there is no fee to attend the program. Everything that girls, boys and their parent(s) need to know if a child is approached by strangers or if a child is abducted will be discussed in this interactive presentation. Amber alert procedures and what to do if you see a child in an Amber Alert is also discussed. “The program is loaded with lots of important information for both parents and children,” Small said. Registration is required prior to the class, which is free and open to the public. For more information or registration, stop at the YWCA Piqua at 418 N. Wayne St., call 773-6626, or e-mail

Area teachers featured presenters at convention SIDNEY — Three teachers from Lehman Catholic High School were featured presenters at the Ohio Catholic Education Association Biennial Convention, held Oct. 3-4 at the Columbus Convention Center. Catholic educators from across Ohio as well as Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana attended the conference. On Monday afternoon, Science Department Chair Sister Ginny Scherer and life sciences teacher Tracy Hall of the Lehman Science Department presented a session titled “Spicing Up Your Science Department Through Extracurricular Activities.” Their powerpoint presentation was attended by high school teachers who wanted to enliven their curriculum by offering extracurricular opportunities to stimulate student interest and to apply the knowledge gained in the classroom. “Lehman has always gone above and beyond the usual science fair to extend



the benefits of our science education program,” said Scherer. “In addition to our annual science fair, our Science Olympiad Team has consistently qualified for the state competition. We also participate in Envirothon, TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science), and the Ohio Energy Project.” Because of those extracurricular science activities, Lehman’s Science Department has won the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Youth Science Opportunities for 22 consecutive years. This year, just 23 Ohio high schools received this award. On Tuesday, Lehman mathematics teacher Jack

SCHERER Albers presented a session titled “Making Mathematics Make Sense.” This workshop emphasized the need to teach mathematics as a language. “Students must know the ‘why’ when they are doing mathematics and be able to communicate this intelligently,” said Albers. In his session, Albers shared ideas about how teachers can promote mathematics as a language, discussed areas of mathematics that can be confusing, and brainstormed ideas for implementing these concepts in the classroom. A veteran with over 40 years of teaching experience, Albers teaches Pre-Calculus,

Calculus, and AP Calculus at Lehman. All Lehman Catholic teachers attended the conference along with teachers from area Catholic elementary schools. As a result, most Catholic schools were not be in session on October 3-4. In addition to small breakout sessions and roundtables, the conference featured a keynote address by Sister Anne Bryan Smollin, whose topic was “Finding the Joy in Each Moment.” A Sister of St. Joseph, Smollin is an international lecturer on wellness and spirituality. Her appearance at the conference was sponsored by Ave Maria Press. The highlight of the conference was a Catholic Mass, concelebrated by bishops from all the participating dioceses. There were also exhibits by companies promoting textbooks, fundraising, technology, and educational materials. Teachers had the opportunity to earn graduate credit for attending the conference.

Public invited to inaugural meeting PIQUA — The public is invited to the inaugural meeting of the Friends of the Piqua Public Library from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6. Friends of the Piqua Public Library is a newly formed non-profit organization created to support and to promote the Piqua library as a cultural center for the Piqua Community. The updated facility of the former Fort Piqua Hotel and more space for programming gives the staff at the library the capacity to offer new programming and more services for all patrons to enjoy. The idea of library friends groups is not a new one. Friends groups can be found at hundreds of large libraries all over the country. These groups can be a valuable asset in providing new innovative, exciting programs for their communities through advocacy, public relations,

Continued from page 1 to Rodriguez’s back yard for the festive tea party. Assorted wooden chairs which gave an “old fashioned appeal” were placed along a long table adorned with a light blue cloth. Gold charger plates held hand painted saucers and teacups and four glass vases contained bouquets of colorful tissue paper flowers created by the host and several friends. As the youngsters compared their “bling” and chatted animatedly, mothers didn’t hesitate to snap dozens of photographs of the well-orchestrated event. Said one smiling mother “This is soo-o out of character for my daughter, who is a tomboy at heart.” The youngster, who sat nearby, wore a fashionable summer frock with a hot pink flower holding back her ponytail. Another mother, whose camera battery wore out, suddenly commented “I ran out of (battery) juice,” and promptly pulled out her cell phone for more photos. The menu included items such as fresh fruit on colored Popsicle sticks, butterfly cookies, cupcakes, heart-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chocolate dipped pretzels with sprinkles, cheddar cheese cut into fun shapes and strawberry and lemonade beverages which passed as tea. “Look, mom, there’s frosting on the cup-

An individual serving table held white serving platters decorated with pink and light green ribbon. Nearby stood a wicker rocking chair and wooden high chair holding antique dolls and two singing bears — a Fred Astaire Bear and Ginger Rogers Bear — loaned to the hostess by Noralie Brower of Piqua. Rodriguez, who is employed by Buckeye Insurance and actively involved in the Piqua community, was asked what prompted her to host a tea. “I was never able to have children and, as you can see, I’m living vicariously through others. I read an article about a children’s tea party in Victorian Magazine years ago and always thought it looked like fun.

When I got serious about making it happen, I immediately found 16 matching cups and saucers at a local thrift shop store and hand painted colorful flowers on the sides and a little heart on the bottom of the cup. After that, the tea party planning had begun.” The guests — who received “old fashioned” invitations — included children and grandchildren of Rodriguez’s close friends. “Two of the little girls, Emma and Lucy, have come to my house since they were little to bake cookies, make feather purses, and create Christmas cards so they were the first two on the list and it grew from there.” She continued “When I was a little girl, one of the ladies at church who had all boys and always wanted little girls, occasionally invited me and another little girl

Light refreshments will be served, and entertainment will be enjoyed. Suggestions cards will be available for those in attendance to submit ideas.

to come to her house to play and make cookies, plant flowers and do fun crafts for the afternoon. I always remembered those special times at Miss Anita’s house and I hope the tea party was a memorable day for these girls as well.” Following a lively game of musical chairs with the Fred Astaire Bear singing “The Way You Look Tonight,” each youngster was given a sculptured ivy halo and her hair was lightly sprayed with sparkles to resemble angel dust. “Is this poison ivy?” one little girl asked as a ivy halo was placed on her head. Before they adjourned, departing guests were given a wrapped butterfly cookie, a cluster of flowers and photo album to record the memories of their first garden party. “God clearly has a soft spot in His heart for little girls because the weather was absolutely fantastic,” marveled Rodriguez, as the youngsters embraced her with hugs, kisses and “thank yous.” One neighbor girl, however, stood several feet away with a saddened look. “Can I come visit you tomorrow?” she asked. “I’m not ready to go home.” The garden party clearly exceeded the hostess’ expectations. “I think I had as much fun as they did,” Rodriguez said, as she cleared teacups and saucers away from the table.

— Former Ohio State football coach Earle Bruce talks about Buckeyes quarterback Joe Bauserman..

Cardale Jones, who signed with Ohio State in 2011, is gray shirting at Fork Union Military Academy,. He is sharing time with two other players at quarterback. Jones is from Cleveland Glenville High School. LeShun Daniels Jr., a junior running back from Warren Harding High School, had an 81-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a 65-yard run for another score in a 14-13 loss to Euclid last week. He is the son of former OSU offensive lineman LeShun Daniels. Joshua Perry, a 2012 Ohio State commitment from Olentangy High School as a linebacker scored his first defensive touchdown when he returned an interception for a TD in a 42-17 win over Dublin Jerome last Friday night.

Ohio State at No. 16 Illinois, 3:30 p.m., Saturday, ABC QUARTERBACKS


Braxton Miller’s value to Ohio State (3-3, 0-2 Big Ten) became clear when a 14-point lead turned into a stunning 34-27 loss to Nebraska last week after he went out of the game with a sprained ankle. The freshman quarterback is expected to play this week against Illinois (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten), which is off to its best start since 1951. The Illini’s Nathan Scheelhaase (1,238 yards passing, 10 TDs and 347 yards rushing, 4 TDs) is an example of the maturity that can come with experience at the quarterback position. After throwing four touchdown passes and seven interceptions in his first six starts last season as a redshirt freshman, he has 23 TD passes and four interceptions in his last 13 games. Advantage: Illinois

With DeVier Posey’s continuing suspension, Ohio State has had no go-to guy who can get himself open consistently. Tight end Jake Stoneburner leads the team with 11 catches, five of those for touchdowns. But eight of his receptions came in the first two games of the season. Getting Corey Brown back, who returned last week after missing three games with a high ankle sprain, could help. He had three catches for 61 yards against Nebraska. Illinois’ A.J. Jenkins has 46 catches for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. He combines speed and a willingness to go across the middle in traffic. His 815 yards leads the country. Advantage: Illinois

OFFENSIVE LINE Left tackle Mike Adams, one of four players who were hit with five-game NCAA suspensions, returned last week and played like he was trying to make up for lost time. After a humiliating nine-sack effort against Michigan State, OSU gave up only two sacks against Nebraska and the running game averaged 5.9 yards per play. Illinois tackle Jeff Allen has started 40 straight games. He is one of three starters on the line who has started at least two years. Illinois ranks third in the Big Ten in total offense (447 yards a game) eight spots ahead of Ohio State (315 yards a game), which is ahead of only Minnesota in the conference. Advantage: Even

DEFENSIVE LINE Losing defensive end Nathan Williams for the season is a big blow for Ohio State. The Buckeyes’ best pass rusher will have a second surgery on his left knee after an earlier arthroscopic surgery was not successful. Illinois leads the Big Ten with 22 quarterback sacks and defensive end Whitney Mercilus leads the country with 8.5 sacks, including three in a 41-20 win over Indiana last week. The other end, Michael Buchanan, has 4.5 sacks. Advantage: Illinois


DAN HERRON The 5-foot-10, 205-pound senior running back from Warren makes his return to the lineup after a six-game suspension. Herron should give the offense a lift, he has 2,194 career rushing yards and 30 career touchdowns.

Miller’s injury wasn’t the only issue in Ohio State’s loss at Nebraska. The defense gave up 28 unanswered points in the game’s final 23 minutes and one of the big problems was missed tackles, something that some of OSU’s linebackers struggled with at times. Andrew Sweat’s 43 tackles leads Ohio State. For Illinois, Ian Thomas is second on the team with 34 tackles, five of them for losses. Jonathan Brown (30 tackles, six of them for losses) returns after being suspended one game for kneeing a Northwestern player in the groin. Advantage: Illinois

DEFENSIVE BACKS Ohio State (seventh) and Illinois (fifth) are in the middle of the pack in the Big Ten in pass defense. Both have seven turnovers. C.J. Barnett and Bradley Roby lead OSU with two interceptions each. RUNNING BACKS Illinois has forced a turnover in 21 consecutive games. Cornerback Tavon Dan Herron will return from the suspension for NCAA violations, which cost him the first six games of the sea- Wilson (41 tackles). Safety Steve Hull has two interceptions. Advantage: Even son, but won’t start. Herron led Ohio State with 1,155 yards rushing last season. Jordan Hall, who dealt with his own two-game suspension, remains the starter, but has SPECIAL TEAMS averaged only 47 yards a game the last two weeks. Carlos Drew Basil is 7 of 9 on field goals. Ben Buchanan averages 41.8 yards Hyde’s 104 yards against Nebraska was the first time OSU per punt. has had a 100-yard rusher this season. Illinois kicker Derek Dimke is 7 of 7 on field goals, with a long of 49 Illinois’ running attack is a group effort. Seniors Troy Pollard (361 yards) and Jason Ford (279 yards) and freshman Donovan Young (314 yards) have shared yards. Punter Justin DuVernois is averaging 38.2 yards per kick. Illinois has allowed a kickoff return for a touchdown. the carries at tailback. Advantage: Even Advantage: Ohio State

Bad losses don’t have to crush teams COLUMBUS — When it comes to Ohio State football disasters, the first place Luke Fickell’s mind goes is also the first place mine goes. After Nebraska scored 28 unanswered points to stun OSU 34-27 last Saturday night, Ohio State’s coach referenced a 63-14 loss to Penn State his junior season as an example of how a team could absorb a bad loss and bounce back. “We got beat bad when I was in school up at Happy Valley. We rallied and came back and had a heck of a season,” he said. Ohio State finished the 1994 season with a 9-4 record, which included a 22-6 win over Michigan three weeks after the Penn State debacle. Fickell might be on to something. But there is one huge difference between now and 1994. The 1994 Ohio State team that was overwhelmed by Penn State had eight future NFL firstrounders on its roster — Joey Galloway, Eddie George, Terry Glenn, Rickey Dudley, Shawn Springs, Orlando Pace, Korey Stringer and Craig Powell. And it had three more guys who had multi-year NFL careers — Mike Vrabel, Bob Hoying and Chris Sanders. This year’s Ohio State team can’t come close to having that kind of talent. If Fickell wants to get out some old game films for inspiration, there are some more recent examples of Ohio State rebounding after a loss he could use. In 2001, the first year Jim Tressel was at OSU, the Buckeyes let two big leads get away, then won the next week. Early that season, they were up 17-0 in the first half against Wisconsin but watched the Badgers win 20-17. A week later, Ohio State won 27-12 over San Diego State. A few weeks deeper into the season, OSU was ahead of Penn State 27-9 early in the second half before the Nittany Lions rallied to win 29-27. The next week, Ohio State hung on for a 31-28 win over Minnesota. It can be done. Whether this year’s team will do it is a tough question to answer, though.

HOROSCOPE Friday, Oct. 14, 2011 Both a little bit of chance and a lot of Lady Luck are likely to play prominent roles in your personal affairs during coming months. Although both factors will make your life easier, one particular event will be especially outstanding.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Two separate situations in which you’re involved might have a chance of fusing together very nicely.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t delay going after an important objective if you believe the favorable conditions you’re now experiencing may only be temporary. Strike while the iron is smoking. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you think you have a solution that would resolve a misunderstanding between two close friends, speak up. It’s important you do so while both parties are in a forgiving mood. COPYRIGHT 2011 UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE, INC.

Browns will pay Benard BEREA (AP) — As Marcus Benard recovers from a motorcycle accident he's lucky to have survived, the Cleveland defensive end has one less thing to worry about. The Browns have decided to pay the injured lineman for the remainder of this season, a gesture they didn't have to make because he sustained a nonfootball-related injury. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press the Browns will pay Benard roughly $370,000 he's still due this season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of privacy laws. Benard's base salary this season is $525,000. The team placed him on the reserve nonfootball injury list, ending his season after four games. On Monday, Benard broke his hand — and sustained other undisclosed injuries — when he smashed his three-wheel Can-Am Spyder into a guardrail on Interstate 71.

Troy wears Piqua boys down Indians lose 4-0 to Trojans BY JOSH BROWN Ohio Community Media Delegated to the role of spoiler in its bitter rivalry with Troy, Piqua hung tough for about 55 minutes. The Trojans’ measured, methodical approach simply wore the Indians down. Troy (8-7-1, 4-1 Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division) kept Piqua’s defense pinned in its own end for the majority of Thursday night’s game, finally striking first with 7:21 left in the first half. The Indians kept fighting hard, but the Trojans picked up an insurance goal midway through the second half and cruised from there to a 4-0 victory that clinched at least a share of its second straight GWOC North Division title. Troy knocked off Sidney 1-0 on Tuesday, setting up a three-way tie with the Yellowjackets and Butler Aviators — but the Trojans needed a win at rival Piqua to seal it. “Tonight and Tuesday night at Sidney both, I was proud of how well we played,” Troy coach Richard Phillips said. “We moved the ball around well and created chances.” Piqua (6-9-1, 1-3-1) had chances of its own, as well, but it took a more direct approach — playing the ball long to its two forwards and packing the rest of the team back on defense to clog up Troy’s shooting lanes. The ap-


Piqua’s Cody Lumpkin crosses the ball against Troy Thursday night at Wertz Stadium. proach worked early, too, but Troy keeper Eric Meier had a solid game and turned away everything that came his way. “We were definitely ready to go tonight,” Piqua coach Nick Guidera said. “It’s Troy-Piqua, and no matter what sport it is, you can’t help but be up for it. “Transition was open for us. One touch, one bounce — we were just one away from slamming a couple balls home. If we get a couple of those early, this game is totally different.” Piqua keeper Brandon Newbright matched Meier early, facing constant pressure with Troy play-

ing possession ball in his end. The defense held tough — until the 7:21 mark of the first half. The ball was headed off of the crossbar and came to a rest in front of the open goal, and Troy’s Kyle Nelson won the race to the ball and stuck it home for the game’s first score. Piqua’s Evan Grissom and Tyler Broaddrick had chances to tie the game late in the half and early in the second half, but the Indians couldn’t find the back of the net. And with 23:30 left in the game, Luke Manis cashed in another rebound off of a blocked shot to give Troy some insurance.

“They’re a more direct team than we are, but our is much midfield stronger,” Phillips said. “They held us together there. We were able to move the ball tonight. “You ask the team to recognize what’s happening on the field and make adjustments themselves, and that’s where the seniors have to step up. They need to say, ‘Look, this is what we need to do,’ and get the guys to do it.” The game degraded into chippiness soon after Troy took its two-goal lead. Two players got tangled up in the midfield, which turned into a shoving match and dual yellow cards, then

soon after a yellow card was issued to a player on the Piqua bench as tempers boiled over. Troy senior Kyle Zimmerman put an end to all that with 15:12 to go, though, sending a shot skipping across the ground to the far post to make it 3-0 and seal it. Fellow senior Robert Stump then set up a goal by Dakota Hampton with 6:32 to play, and the Trojans celebrated their title. “We played really well tonight despite everything that went on at the end,” Phillips said. “We hung around, but small mistakes ended up costing us big,” Guidera said.

OHSAA begins adopting policies in 1908 Piqua baseball team has strong season, track team has meet postponed As the 1908 spring season loomed on the horizon, an article in regard to the Ohio High School Athletic Association indicated that this organization was beginning to adopt policies on the member schools that included Piqua. “The first rule of the new Ohio State Athletic League to conflict with the wishes of the local management is that which says teams secured shall represent traditional high schools. “From now on the local high school will play under the rules of the Ohio High School Athletic Association, recently formed for the purpose of insuring fair play and clean treatment in the interest of high school athletics. “ The league is now well under way, and it is expected that almost all high schools of any repute will be enrolled at the beginning of the year. “The rules of the state association are almost identical with those of the old interurban league in which Piqua was formerly included except that they are more strict if anything. “It is not anticipated that Piqua will have any trouble because of the additional stringency and local teams will play on as if there had been no change in the higher management of athletics. “One of the greatest benefits to be secured will be the enforcement of contracts, in which Piqua has had so much trouble in the past.” The preview for the 1908 baseball team is positive. “The P.H.S. base ball squad was out in full force for practice yesterday afternoon and if the ideal weather conditions continue, the team should be rounded into excellent shape for the opening game next Friday, with a team composed of the faculty of the High school. “This game will be a good one as it represents the opening of the base ball season in Piqua and a large crowd should turn out and encourage the boys from the start. “The practice this week will be mainly all around hard work in order to

work out all the soreness, but toward the last of the week, position practice will be started. “The outlook for this team is very encouraging, to say the least, and all concerned in the sport are practicing with a view that will speak ill for P.H.S. opponents. “The practice of Monday afternoon consisted of knocking flys, both to and from the outfield. “While the boys are rather awkward now this will soon wear off, and in a few days will be a thing of the past.” The spring schedule for the track team included just one meet, but there is limited optimism about their season. “The P.H.S. track team, under the direction of Captain Meeker, is practicing every evening now, in preparation for the track meet with Steele High School of Dayton on May 15. “The sprinters are doing some hard work and with the abundance of material to select from a few spurters should be developed that will take first place in the meet. “Without a few firsts in the sprints there is not much chance of winning the meet. There is a serious handicap upon this year’s team, however, as some of the best men will not be able to devote enough of their time to practicing to get into condition for the meet.” The first baseball game of the season was held on May 16. “The P.H.S. baseball team played a team composed of the faculty of the High school this afternoon, and a large crowd of enthusiastic rooters were present. “The students were given a half holiday today, and as no admission was charged to them the attendance was of the very best.” The first ‘real’ game of the year was against Covington. “The P.H.S. baseball squad is practicing daily now and by next Friday will be in first class shape to administer a trouncing to the Covington High school team. “A splendid crowd should turn out and root for the coming high school

champions of Ohio.” “In the presence of a very poor audience and with wet grounds and rain to help make things unpleasant for the home team and the visitors, the Piqua High School team played their second game of the season at Athletic Field Friday afternoon and shut out their opponents, the Covington High School team by the score of 14 to 0.” The first effect of the new state athletic association was felt in late April. “There will be no regular base ball game Friday afternoon with Greenville as scheduled for the reason that Greenville does not belong to the Athletic association. Urbana could have been secured for a game but they also are not members. “These cities could join the league by paying a fee of $3. The association was formed for the purpose of protecting athletics and such cities the size of Greenville and Urbana, who would hesitate to join the association for the pittance of three dollars, plainly shows their disregard for uplifting the standard of higher athletics.” Bad weather would plague the base ball team and the track squad the entire 1908 season. But the track season was also in jeopardy because of problems with the host school of the only scheduled meet with Steele High of Dayton. “The track meet which was scheduled for tomorrow between Steele High school and P.H.S. at Dayton has been called off for the present owing to Dayton not making out the contracts according to previous agreements between the two managements. “Dayton has been rather slow all the time the meet has been under consideration and the contracts to govern the events were not received until

yesterday morning. “The agreement between the two schools was to the effect that the meet should be held under the same rules and regulations that last year’s meet was held under, but when the contracts were received my Manager Yenney it was found that a mile run had been listed as an event. “This was not held last year and was out of order, to say the least. “A meeting of the team was called this morning by Prof. Kirkendall in his office and it was decided to call the meet off, if Steele could not accept conditions as managed. “Communication was established with the Dayton manager, and things were clearly pointed out to him, and he promised the event should receive proper consideration at the teams hands but unless something is heard very soon, the meet will not be held. “The only way in which P.H.S. will accept the conditions are that one athlete shall not contest in more than four events. “If they insist on the mile run, they are welcome to it. If Piqua can have the privilege of the discus throw, which caused some altercation some time past, but failing to agree to this proposition will cause an indefinite cancellation of the meet” On May 15 an article in the newspaper literally ended the 1908 track season. “The track team which was to have been held this afternoon at Dayton between Steele High School of that place and P.H.S. has been called indefinitely, Dayton refusing to stand by the agreement before the contracts were made out. “The understanding with Steele was that the meet should be held under the same conditions as last year. “Dayton seems to have overlooked this when the contracts were forwarded and the events noted. Manager Yenney of the home team made every effort to come as near accepting Steele’s proposal but it proved to be to no avail and the meet is off. “It was a great disappointment to the fellows

as they have worked hard to get themselves into condition and much effort and considerable time has been spent to develop the team into a winner. “P.H.S. would have stood a splendid chance of winning the meet and Dayton seemed to realize the fact as they did not overexert themselves in endeavoring to adjust matters satisfactorily. “The many weeks of track training now count for naught and nothing has been gained except some good experience and exercise.” This was the last newspaper account that dealt with the high school track team and the season finished without a single competitive meet. The base ball team got ready for their next opponent. “The P.H.S. base ball team will play Hamilton on Athletic Field tomorrow instead of at Hamilton, as scheduled. “The Hamilton management was evidently some what afraid of the heavy expense that would be incurred to Hamilton and therefore the game was transferred to Piqua. “This will be the first real base ball game played in Piqua by the High school team this season as Covington was easily defeated by a large score as was the high school faculty. “A game had been booked with Lima at Lima two weeks ago but we weather forced the management to postpone the game. “Piqua’s lineup will be presented as follows: Pitcher – Leffel; Catcher – Munger; First Base – Levering; Second base – Chamberlain; Third Base – Cranston; Shortstop – Edge; Right Field – Rike; Left Field – Brown; and Center Field – McMacken.” “The P.H.S. lost the first game of baseball this season Friday at Athletic Field, Hamilton High School being the victors by the score of 6 to 5. “Errors of the most costly variety lost the home team the game. When the team work was most needed, an error was sure to come.” The baseball season was scheduled to end with

a doubleheader against Lima, even though the team had only played the high school faculty, Covington and Hamilton. “A big doubleheader will be played Saturday (Decoration Day) at Athletic Field between Lima and Piqua High schools. This will be the last that Piqua will play this season as the short schedule will be completed after these games are played. “Lima’s standing in Athletics is well known, and they confidently expect that victory will be theirs, but P.H.S. comes in for a part of the argument about that and two good games will be the result.” The Dispatch reported on the holiday action. “Owing to the late arrival of the Lima team Saturday, only one game was played by the high school and while it might have been improved upon in several points, it proved to be the most interesting game of the local season. “Piqua had a neat lead of four runs until the eighth, when the visitors took advantage of Leffel’s wildness and turned two bases on balls and two hits into four runs. “This put ginger into the members of both teams, but Piqua fielded well for the remainder of the game, and also landed on Poage for four consecutive singles in the ninth which sent two runs over the pan for a 6 to 4 win. “The crowd was only a little more than half the usual holiday size, principally owing to a lack of publicity, but it was enthusiastic.” The baseball season ended on a journalistic quirk. Reporting on the same Lima game, the Call reported that Piqua scored one run in the ninth inning to win the game, 5 to 4, even though the Dispatch was emphatic in noting that the locals scored two runs in the ninth for the 6 to 4 victory.

Tigers stay alive with win in ALCS Detroit gets past Texas 7-5


Josh Hanselman drives in the final Young Guns race of the season.

Hanselman wrapping up successful kart season Wraps up Young Guns Senior Kart title Josh Hanselman of Piqua is winding down the outdoor kart racing season in good fashion. Hanselman recently traveled to Akron Speedway in Indiana and won the stock Lites, Stock Medium, and Stock Heavy

Class features. He then followed that up by traveling to Stateline Speedway in Edon, Ohio on Sat. to race in the first Billy McKnight Memorial Race and won both the Stock Medium and Stock Heavy Class fea-

tures as well as winning all four heat races that night also. Hanselman recently wrapped up the traveling Young Guns Kart series by becoming the 2011 Young Guns Senior Champ Kart Champion.

DETROIT (AP) — One moment, Justin Verlander and the Tigers were on the verge of watching their season slip away. After a double play and a lucky bounce, they were headed back to Texas. Verlander helped save Detroit's season with a gutsy effort and the Tigers hit for a sudden cycle to break away in a 7-5 victory Thursday that cut the Rangers' lead to 3-2 in the AL championship series. Delmon Young hit two of Detroit's four homers and Miguel Cabrera had a tiebreaking double in the sixth inning — thanks to a bizarre bounce off third base. "I have that bag in my office right now. And that will be in my memorabilia room at some point in my life, I can promise you," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. After building a fiverun cushion, Detroit held

on despite Nelson Cruz's record fifth home run of the series. With closer Jose Valverde unavailable for the Tigers, Texas cut it to 7-5 in the ninth and had Cruz on deck when Phil Coke retired Mike Napoli on a game-ending groundout with two runners on. Coke got five outs for his first career postseason save. "Cokie came through for us," Leyland said. "A little different situation for him obviously, but he was up to the challenge." The Rangers get another chance to reach the World Series for the second straight season in Game 6 Saturday night at home. Derek Holland will start for Texas against Max Scherzer. A swift turn of events in the sixth helped Detroit pull ahead. The Tigers turned a bases-loaded double play to keep the

score tied at 2, then opened the bottom half with a single, double, triple and homer — in order — to take a 6-2 lead. It was the first time four consecutive batters on one team hit for a "natural" cycle in a postseason game, according to STATS LLC. The Rangers were the ones who seemed on the verge of breaking the game open in the sixth, loading the bases with one out. But then Ian Kinsler hit a grounder right to third baseman Brandon Inge, who merely had to step on the bag and throw to first for a double play. "We had him right there in the sixth. He got out of it," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "We missed a home run by inches, and they opened the game up by inches. Got a groundball double See ALCS/Page 17

Piqua Seniors Enjoy Moment

Piqua spikers settle for fourth in GWOC Lady Indians lose in five Fairmont BY ROB KISER Call Sports Editor


The Piqua girls soccer seniors had some fun on Senior Day with TrotwoodMadison recently. From the left are Kelsey Deal, Maddie Hilleary, Sarah McCrea, Holly Black, Lauren McGraw, Cheryl Bell.

■ Prep Roundup

Lady Indians run into strong Lebanon team Lady Cavs end with win over Parkway Piqua hosted Lebanon Wednesday night in a matchup of two of the top 10 teams in the Dayton area, with Lebanon winning 4-2. “Lebanon is an extremely talented team at every position on the field,” Piqua coach Karen Horvath said. “They play a level of soccer that is comparable to some college teams.” The first ten minutes of the game saw Lebanon get the upper hand as they netted goals from Shelby Gillespie (third minute) and Breanna Bogaert (ninth minute). Lebanon continued to pressure the Piqua defense over the next 15 minutes and at the 15:15 mark of the first half found a third goal when Alyssa Plowman was able to find the back of the net from 17 yards out. “Our girls had a difficult start trying to figure out their attacking formation, but once they figured it out, we were able to compete with them,” Horvath said. “The first half seemed a little frantic on our part, but the girls found confidence as the game went on.” Lebanon continued to attack the Piqua defense for the remainder of the half and looked to have fourth goal with 90 seconds remaining when Piqua goalkeeper Kelsey Deal made three consecutive point blank save to keep the score at 3-0 at the half.

The saves by Deal seemed to ignite Piqua as they took the field in the second with a renewed confidence and determination. Just as Lebanon had done in the first half, Piqua struck early in the second half when Diana Burt chipped a ball over the Lebanon defense and Cheryl Bell then chipped the hard charging Lebanon goalkeeper to make the score 3-1. Piqua continued to press for another goal and with 10 minutes remaining in the game Burt was once again involved in creating a Piqua goal. After getting behind the Lebanon defense Burt fired a shot that the Lebanon goalkeeper was not able to hold on to and Kaili Ingle was waiting at the far post to finish the rebound to make it 3-2. The final 10 minutes saw Piqua push numbers forward trying to find the equalizer, but with underone minute remaining, Lebanon was able to seal the game as their counter attack created the final goal when Megan Fennessey was waiting at thefar post to finish a cross from the Lebanon midfield. “The second half proved to be much better than the first, with Cheryl Bell vollying a beautiful cross to the near post from Dianna Burt in the first three minutes,” Horvath said. “Then halfway through the second half, Kaili Ingle

finished another perfectly played cross from Dianna Burt on the far post. “Both goals were the culmination of extremely hard work on our part. “The girls definitely earned them. Even though it was a loss for us, I was very proud of the girls effort last night. We lost to Lebanon 12-0 last year, and this year kept them to a two-goal deficit. We are making so much progress, and that's all I ever ask for.” Piqua will close the regular season at Troy Saturday night with second place in the GWOC North on the line. The JV game starts at 5:30 p.m., with the varsity scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

VOLLEYBALL Lady Cavs win ROCKFORD — The Lehman volleyball team closed out a 19-3 regular season with a 17-25, 2520, 25-23, 30-28 win over Parkway Monday. Lehman will play Bradford in Tippecanoe D-IV sectional action at 6 p.m. Monday. Andrea Thobe had 26 assists and 18 digs, while Morgan Schmitmeyer pounded 11 kills. Ellie Waldmith had 13 kills and four blocks, with Paxton Hatcher adding eight kills. Ellie Cain had nine kills and 23 assists, while Erica Paulus led the defense with 28 digs.

Chris Davis’ puzzlement was understandable. You couldn’t blame the Piqua volleyball coach for feeling his team should have won the GWOC third-place match against Fairmont at the Piqua Junior High in three straight games. Which was exactly what it looked like would happen — before Piqua lost 21-25, 23-25, 25-19, 25-15, 15-9. “I don’t have any answers,” Davis said about the turnaround over the last three games. “It wasn’t any one thing. Fairmont served us a little. “But, our passing just has to get better. We are a better passing team than that. “Our sets were off. Our hitters looked confused at times. It wasn’t just one wheel that came off the bus. It was all of them.”

The hitting of Brooke Reinke, who had three blocks in the opening game, and Shelby Vogler helped Piqua pull away late in the first game. Each had a kill for the final two points. In the second, Piqua had to rally from a 21-19 deficit. Vogler served an ace to tie it at 22, Reinke had a tip to give Piqua a 24-23 lead and a double-hit on Fairmont gave Piqua a two-game lead. But after a Hayley Monroe kill had gotten Piqua within 14-12 in the third game, things came apart and the Lady Indians never really recovered. Fairmont had some new-found confidence and went on a 8-2 run and won the third game 25-19. Then Piqua got down 60 in the fourth game and again, could not stem the tide. The Lady Indians were

within 6-4 in the deciding game, before Fairmont scored three straight points and Piqua could never get closer than three. “That is one of the things we talked about,” Davis said about Piqua’s play giving Fairmont confidence. “I told them they were fueling their jets. We just made a lot of mistakes.” Reinke had 19 kills, seven blocks and one ace, while Vogler had 15 kills, two blocks, two aces and 24 digs. Jasmine Davis had 34 assists, six kills and 14 digs, while Monroe had five kills and three blocks. Taylor Bachman had 17 digs and two aces; while Tasha Potts and Macy Yount both added four digs. Piqua close the regular season at 16-6 and will play Wilmington in the Troy Division I sectional at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Bengals offense surprising people Young trio off to impressive start CINCINNATI (AP) — The quarterback? A rookie. The top receiver? Rookie. The pass-catching tight end? One year removed from being a rookie. Those low expectations for the Cincinnati Bengals' offense heading into the season were understandable. They had one of the NFL's youngest teams, one with playmakers who aren't far removed from the days of singing the school fight song. They've stopped singing and started growing fast. The Bengals are off to a 3-2 start in large part because quarterback Andy Dalton, receiver A.J. Green and tight end Jermaine Gresham are playing beyond their years. Dalton has been cool in the biggest moments, and Green and Gresham have made incredible catches when they're needed most.

The rest of the league is starting to notice. "It shows you that they're very talented, but very poised as well and that they have real good focus," Indianapolis coach Jim Caldwell said on Wednesday. "For a group at their experience level, they're playing like they've been in the league three, four, five years. They're doing it well." The trio will be a focus on Sunday when the Bengals play the Colts (0-5) at Paul Brown Stadium before another less-thancapacity crowd. It will be one of Dalton's best tests so far, given the Colts' reputation for putting pressure on the passer. "I think they react really well to some things and they're a fast-flow defense," said Dalton, a second-round pick from TCU. "So I think there are areas where we can attack and

find some matchups that we like." Their best matchups involve whoever is guarding Green and Gresham. Green, the fourth overall pick from Georgia, ranks 13th among NFL receivers with 402 yards. He's 21st with 24 catches; Gresham ranks 37th with 21 receptions. They've come up big in the last two games. Green had four catches for 118 yards during a 2320 comeback win over Buffalo. Gresham had four catches for 70 and a onehanded touchdown reception. Dalton scored on a draw play to tie it with less than 5 minutes left, then dived for a first down to set up the winning field goal as time ran out. Last week, Dalton pulled off a second straight winning drive for a 30-20 victory in Jacksonville.

talked about is we didn’t want to lose the match,” Sargeant said. “And we didn’t. It was definitely a case of them winning the match.” When the rains came, the match was on serve in the first set, with Country Day up 6-5 and Sargeant preparing to serve. After nearly an hour break, play resumed indoors in Hamilton. “Actually, that was probably a Godsend,” Sargeant said. “We just couldn’t find any rhythm and after the break, we were able to pull out the first set. It was a close match. They just played a little better.” It brought the end to amazing run by the Lehman first doubles duo. “I really don’t know what to say,” Larger said. “It just wasn’t our day.” Bennett got the thrill of a lifetime Thursday when she found out her match would be played on Centre Court. “When I found out, I

was so excited,” she said. “It was a little different (playing in a stadium with just a few fans watching), but looking up, I could kind of imagine what it would be like playing there (in the professional tournament).” The bad news for Bennett was she was facing one of the best players in the state in Alter’s Katie Boeckman, who won the match 6-0, 6-1. “She’s an awesome player,” Bennett, a twotime district qualifier, who played doubles with Morgan Shroyer last year, said. “I felt like playing her, she made me better.” And in the end, Bennett would have a tough time imaging a better way to end her high school career. “To play on the Centre Court at the ATP in your final match,” Bennett said. “What could be better than that? This was amazing.” Just like Bennett and Sargeant-Larger were throughout their careers.

But, they couldn’t overcome a strong Country Day duo of Caroline Blackburn and Mackenzie Patterson, losing 6-7 (7-5), 6-2, 6-3 in a match that was finished at the Colonial Racquet Club in Hamilton after the rain arrived at Kings Island in the early morning. “It has been amazing,” Sargeant said. “Losing one regular season match in three years. It has been a lot of fun. We wanted to get to state. When you are a one seed playing a four seed you expect to win — but that’s not what happened.” But, both players made it clear — that had more to do with Blackburn and Patterson playing well than anything else. “It is tough, because we don’t see that competition during the year,” Larger said. “I definitely think we don’t have feel like we didn’t play well. They are just very good.” Sargeant agreed. “One of the things we

Phil Coke reacts to the Tigers win Thursday.

ALCS Continued from page 15 play, hits the bag, and from that point on, you know, boom, bam. Put up four runs." Ryan Raburn led off the bottom half with a single, and what looked to be a routine grounder by Cabrera bounced high off third base and down the line, putting Detroit ahead 3-2. "We were lucky, but we need lucky times right now," Cabrera said. "Hopefully we're lucky Saturday." Victor Martinez followed with a rare triple down the right-field line, scoring another run, and Young added a two-run homer. Raburn homered in the seventh to make it 7-2. After using Valverde and Joaquin Benoit for three straight days, Leyland announced before Game 5 that neither reliever would be available. He was hoping to make it through the day with just Verlander and Coke, and that's exactly what happened. "Well, it's what we said before the game. So it gave everybody a chance to get all their second-guessing ready about it," Leyland said. "That's just the way it had to be today. We talked about it before the game and we did exactly what we felt we had to do to give ourselves any chance to win the series." Verlander allowed four runs and eight hits in 7 13 innings, throwing a career-high 133 pitches. He struck out eight and walked three. "I want the ball. I want to go as deep as possible," Verlander said. "It was a battle for me, all night." Verlander reached 100 mph on the stadium radar gun with pitch No. 133. Cruz, however, caught up to that fastball and sent it down the left-field line for a two-run homer, chasing Verlander and setting a record for homers in a league championship series. "He struck me out twice with curveballs, so I was glad he threw me a fastball, even if it was 100 (mph)," Cruz said. "I think I might have had streaks like this in the minors, maybe, but I've never hit this many homers this fast in the majors." Cruz became the fifth player to hit five homers in a postseason series. Reggie Jackson, Ken Griffey Jr., Juan Gonzalez and Chase Utley were the others. Verlander left the game after Cruz's homer, raising his glove to acknowledge the cheering fans. "I don't like to do that in the middle of a ballgame, but when they show their support that way, you can't help but give them a little tip of the cap or a wave or something," Verlander said. "They've been

tremendous all year." After winning 24 games and leading the American League in ERA and strikeouts, Verlander hadn't had much of a chance to shine this postseason. Two of his first three playoff starts were ended early by rain delays. He didn't have to worry about that Thursday. Game 5 began under a cloudy sky with the sun peeking through over Comerica Park, and the threatening sky later didn't amount to anything until a misty rain began to fall over the field — after the game was over. This time, the Rangers were Verlander's biggest obstacle. With two strikes on Kinsler in the first, Verlander went to his sweeping breaking ball, and the Texas second baseman pulled it to left field for a double. After going to third on a groundout by Elvis Andrus, Kinsler came home on Josh Hamilton's sacrifice fly to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead. "I kind of haven't had my rhythm," Verlander said. Texas starter C.J. Wilson was sharp at the start, retiring his first seven batters. Alex Avila tied it with an opposite-field homer to left in the third. The Detroit catcher has taken a beating behind the plate all year and has had a miserable postseason, going 2 of 33 before the homer. Young was actually left off Detroit's ALCS roster because of an injury, but he returned before Game 2 after Magglio Ordonez re-fractured his ankle. Young's homer over the fence in left-center gave Detroit a 2-1 lead in the fourth. Hamilton's RBI single in the fifth tied the game at 2. "This has been a tremendous, tremendous series in my opinion," Leyland said. Wilson, a left-hander who has struggled in three playoff starts this year, was done in by Detroit's rally in the sixth and came out after that inning. He allowed six runs and eight hits, striking out five and walking two. With two outs in the ninth, Hamilton doubled and Michael Young drove him home with a single that made it 7-5. After a walk to Adrian Beltre, Mike Napoli grounded into a forceout, sending the series back to Texas. "The Detroit Tigers are here for a reason. Tonight their backs were against the wall. They did what they had to do — catching a break included," Washington said. "Now we go home. We still feel good about ourselves."
