BY WILL E SANDERS Staff Writer PIQUA — A rapidly spreading fire moved through a two-story home in the 600 block of Boone Street on Thursday morning, gutting the interior and displacing a family of six. The Piqua Fire Department

was dispatched around 9:15 a.m. after smoke and the smell of wood burning was reported at the residence, 638 Boone St. Once firefighters arrived flames were showing at the front door and quickly spreading through the walls toward a second-story bedroom and attic, said Fire Capt. John Kendall. “It spread very quickly,” Kendall said. Three children, ages 7, 9 and 11, who resided at the residence were in school at the time and a fourth child, a 3-year-old, was car-

ried out of the home to safety by his parents, Don and Cathy Miller. No injuries were reported. While the blaze continues to be investigated, Kendall said the cause appears to be electrical in nature and that the fire apparently ignited in or around the basement and spread through the walls to the attic. The fire caused an estimated $35,000 to the home, a rental property, and an additional $10,000 to the contents, according See Fire/Page 2

Covington BOE given update BY JENNIFER RUNYON For the Daily Call COVINGTON — During their regular monthly meeting Thursday night, Superintendent David Larson updated Covington Exempted Village Board of Education members on the Facility Planning Committee’s work.

The committee has met four times during which they’ve focused on the district’s facility needs. “We don’t want to move forward with some sort of building project just because everybody else has one,” Larson said. They’ve toured Covington school buildings as well as the new school at Newton. At a com-

munity meeting held last week, attendees heard about options the district has using the Ohio School Facilities Commission. These range from updating and repairing the current buildings to building an entirely new facility. “There’s a spectrum of options,” Larson said adding that there is an urgent need, but “rushing See Covington BOE/Page 2

Covington police investigate a two-vehicle crash on High Street near the north edge of the village on Thursday. The crash occurred just before 5:45 p.m. One driver was transported by CareFlight to a Dayton hospital. The other driver was uninjured. Covington police continue to investigate the crash.

Accident victim Continued from page 1 St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima during what was the very beginning of Tyler’s third semester in the Physical Therapy Assistant program at Edison. On news of the accident, Tyler’s PTA classmates and instructor immediately began to put together a plan to keep her up-to-speed in the class, unaware of the full extent of her injuries. At least they were unaware until nine students and Jordan went to visit Tyler at the hospital a few days after the accident, and were shocked by her condition. Their plans seemingly were for naught, when they found her suffering a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and paralyzed from the neck down. “She could not find words for toilet, bed,” said Jordan. “She was a lot worse off than we initially thought.” However, the thought of one of their own not graduating was not something the Edison PTA students were willing to accept as they turned to their instructor for advice. “I just looked at them. I don’t think she’s going to be able to stay in class, it’s that bad,” said Jordan of that moment when she realized it would take a miracle to turn the situation around, and that Tyler would more than likely have to sit out of the class for a year. That is a situation that usually spells doom for any student having to return the following year and pick up where they left off. Most do not make it to graduation under such circumstances. However, the PTA class was undaunted and began to pool their resources, designing study cards and making videos. Sixteen days into Tyler’s stay at the Lima hospital, Jordan went for another visit. “She had been moved to the (neuro) rehab, I knocked on the door and she said ‘come in,’” said Jordan who was greeted by Tyler jumping up from her hospital bed, doing a little dance, before she hugged her instructor. Classmate Beth Weaver also was in the room, the two having conspired to surprise their instructor with Tyler’s miraculous recovery. “I really don’t remember a whole

According to Jordan, doctors at St. Rita’s were amazed by Tyler’s rapid recovery, with her doctor encouraging her to continue with her PTA studies. This is where the true spirit of Edison comes into play as the PTA classmates were willing to do whatever it took to help Tyler make up for lost time. Their goal was to get her back on track so as to graduate with them. Whether it was driving to Lima with study materials or to Sidney after Tyler’s eventual release from the hospital. “She was so motivated, they were so motivated,” said Jordan of Tyler and the PTA students. While Jordan described Weaver as pivotal in Tyler’s studies, “I do have to say the entire class did something,” said Jordan as Tyler would only be two weeks behind when clinicals began over the summer. For Tyler, the accident has given her both an appreciation for the enormous outpouring of support and a rather unique perspective into the struggles of her future patients. “I’ve kind of gotten this huge sense of humility since being in the hospital,” said Tyler as she was dependent

on others to help her with things many take for granted such as showering, using the restroom, and simply getting around during her stay at the hospital. “It’s kind of given me a bigger sense of how I would treat my patients in the hospital and the respect and privacy that they would need.” Tyler originally became interested in physical therapy after working in a therapy office as a patient service specialist. “I absolutely loved it,” said Tyler of the work experience. She is currently in clinicals at Mercer Hospital in Coldwater, under the full-time supervision of a physical therapist or PT assistant, finding the fast-paced, out and in-patient work a lot of fun. The clinicals proved to be not only a necessary learning experience as part of the PTA class, but one that helped Tyler on a personal level. As during her summer clinical at St. Henry PTA Services, she was both a student and a patient under the direction of the physical therapists. “That was phenomenal of that clinical site to do that, they didn’t have to do that,” said Jordan who received permission from Tyler to make her PTA Services instructor aware of the situation. At the end of this month Tyler will be back in the Edison classroom, one filled with those who helped keep her on the road to success. While she still has some challenges related to the accident, the help from not only her classmates but a number of friends, family in Piqua, Haynes and his family; all were instrumental in helping her progress towards graduation in May where she will receive a degree in Associate of Applied Science (AAS). One she hopes to use in pediatrics or the military, preferably in the Miami County area as her daughter, 5-yearold Chloe, has friends here and their family is here, too. “It’s been a rough year,” said Tyler, as not only has she had the recovery from her accident, but Chloe was diagnosed with diabetes in March. Friends have helped her here, too, such as attending a diabetes walk with her. “So many that has helped me through, they just helped whenever I needed it. It’s been rough but they all got me through it.”

Fire Continued from page 1 to the fire department. The home had smoke detectors, but they were not functioning correctly at the time of the fire. The Miller family is now under the care of the Northern Miami Valley Chapter

of the American Red Cross. “First it was a hot, plastic smell and we searched the house and couldn’t find anything,” Cathy Miller said. “It was only a few minutes between us barely seeing smoke to seeing it coming up the side of the house and out of the attic, maybe three

or four minutes.” Cathy Miller said this has been a tough year for her family. Her husband was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle crash March 18 near Bellefontaine and laid in a ditch for four hours. He suffered collapsed lungs, a torn liver, cracked ribs and

spent a month in the intensive care unit of Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. “By God’s grace he survived and that’s exactly how I view today,” Cathy said. “This year our family has been put to the test. I can’t thank God enough that we are all alive and intact.”

He is scheduled for a Nov. 1 sentencing hearing and faces 15 years to life in prison for the conviction. Pepper had previously entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity but a subsequent forensic psychological examination performed on the man found he was

competent to stand trial. Earlier this month Pepper’s attorneys petitioned the court for a second evaluation. In a court filing Thursday, Judge Christopher Gee declined that request, noting that Pepper “is not a mentally ill person and he does not suffer from any

form of mental retardation.” Authorities say Pepper murdered his roommate, James R. Wolf, 65, on April 13 at 1177 Debron Road, West Milton, and attempted to stage the body to appear like an accident. Mr. Wolf suffered massive trauma to the head.

Murder Continued from page 1 during an impromptu change of plea hearing Thursday just days away from his trial, which was set to begin next week. Pepper remains jailed at the Miami County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Covington BOE Continued from page 1 could lead to a subpar solution for Covington.” The FPC is looking into options and feedback. Another community meeting will be held in November, and Larson hopes FPC members have a recommendation to the board in De-

cember. He added that a recommendation does not mean that a ballot issue will be pursued immediately. Larson said that he plans to wait until the FPC has a recommendation and final report cards are released by the state to have the State of the Schools Address. He said it will probably be in

January this school year and that he hopes to have it return to October next year. Larson shared that according to preliminary report cards released by the state, Covington has been rated Effective. Fore more information on the preliminary report card data, see Saturday’s Daily Call.

Voters First, which supports the plan, argues that there’s too much self-interest in the current process. “This is a very simple plan. It ends the corrupt system we have today that lets politicians design their own districts,” said Sandy Theis, a spokeswoman for the laborbacked coalition. “It will take that power away from them and give it to an independent citizens’ commission that would have to do all its business in public.” The first nine members of the commission would be selected by lottery from 42 applicants placed into Republican, Democratic and unaffiliated pools by a panel of appeals court judges. The first nine members selected would pick the other three. Protect Your Vote Ohio, the opposition campaign, says the lengthy constitutional amendment is rife with risky unknowns. It closely resembles a commission that California voters approved in 2010. “While you have a process

and the state Ballot Board, pitting its largely Democratic backers against largely Republican opponents. Republicans have drawn Ohio’s U.S. House maps for 20 years, and its legislative maps for 30. Opponents include the Ohio Republican Party, Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Ohio Right to Life and state associations of CPAs, retail merchants, and farmers. Supporters include the League of Women Voters, ProgressOhio, Ohio Citizen Action, Planned Parenthood and the Ohio Council of Churches. Another ballot issue, called Issue 1, asks voters whether they’d like to call a convention to “revise, alter, or amend” the Ohio Constitution. Such a convention would include discussion of redistricting and term limits and a cleanup of existing constitutional language, among other tasks. The state’s governing document emerged from the state’s first constitutional convention in Chillicothe in 1802. It was revisited at conventions in 1851 and 1912.

(in Ohio) now that’s accountable to taxpayers because it’s conducted by elected officials, voters would have no recourse in terms of holding these commissioners accountable or for repealing their decisions,” said spokesman Carlo LoParo. Opponents believe unaffiliated commissioners would be particularly susceptible to political pressure at mapdrawing time. The Ohio State Bar Association and Ohio Judicial Conference oppose the issue out of concern that appellate judges also would be vulnerable to political pressure. Theis said the concern is misplaced. “There have been dozens of the state’s top legal and constitutional scholars who signed an open letter that explained that OSBA’s concerns are totally misguided,” she said. “They’ve done a great disservice because they’ve entered the political arena and peddled inaccurate information.” The feud between the two sides has carried over to the Ohio Elections Commission

Rinse. Repeat. efore the ink was dry on my divorce papers in August 2010 I knew I had to get the munchkins and yours truly into counseling or with a support group. That’s how we came to Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City for their DivorceCare: Divorce recovery support group. Before too long, the girls and I started attending Saturday evening church services, too. Not every week, mind you, because the Universe and I don’t always see eye to eye, but I would attend service while the girls would go to class. Sometimes my mother would join me, but for the most part I would sit alone, feeling the phoney amongst a sea of seemingly joyous, faithful, happy families. It seemed the right thing to do until, at some point during service, whether it was a striking song or something Mike Slaughter, the lead pastor, would say and I would start to cry. Yes, I begrudgingly admit to a public display of emotion with not a hankie to be found. Forced to find creative ways to wipe my watering eyes, snotty nose, and able to do nothing save hide behind my hair. Course, I’d be furious, not only for the emotions but this utterly ridiculous, unrealistic, desperate prayer. For BETHANY J. ROYER as the church would fill every Staff Writer evening, I would pray for something that I would admit to no one, not my mother, certainly not my closest of friends at the time, not even the very open-minded support group. I wanted to look up and see my best friend, my ex-husband, at church. That’s all I wanted. Week after week, Saturday after Saturday, I would wait, hope, brew … cry. Bah! Rinse. Repeat. Funny thing, I was stubborn enough about the waterworks to refuse to bring a single Kleenex or spare a square of toilet paper. Determined this would be the Saturday I wouldn’t shed so much as a drop. Of course, what ensued was my walking back to the car after service, munchkins in tow, face blotchy, make-up smeared, in an absolute snit. I knew better than to expect a dry eye after a month or so of this embarrassing display. I also knew better than to ask the Universe for the impossible. Experience, friends, family, even strangers, had shown me that reconciliation does not happen in the real world. Certainly not in my neck of the divorce hood. Yet, the very next visit I’d be making the same silent plea to a God I couldn’t even address by name, hiding behind my hair. Then, one day, I looked up and there was Michael. It’s a hard moment to describe and did not enfold entirely as you may imagine. I wasn’t in the chapel but in a hallway. I wasn’t alone but seated on a bench with the munchkins. I knew he was coming but wasn’t entirely sure he’d actually show up. So when he did, I’m surprised I did not go screaming from the church, because it was a sight I never expected to see and filled me with as much terror as it did hope. Sure, there was a lot of hard work ahead of us. I even got angry at one point, a sentiment I shared with a family member who proceeded to tell me not to blame God for bringing Michael back into my life. (So which did He do here? Argh!) And for all the myriad of negative responses I could have chosen to save face, I ran with it. We both did and whether we trip, break our necks or succeed, is anyone’s guess. Isn’t that how it is in all aspects of life? There is no secret sauce, guarantees, and certainly no crystal ball, unless you are holding out on me. If the latter is the case, feel free to send those winning lotto numbers to me at any time.

To the Editor: This election day Ohioans will be voting on Issue 2, a proposed constitutional amendment on redistricting. While I agree the current redistricting process needs reformed, the proposal set forth in Issue 2 is not the right solution.. Issue 2 would require a group of appellate judges to select a pool of persons from which a 12-member commission would be chosen to redraw Ohio’s legislative and congressional districts. If the 12-member commission cannot agree on a plan, Issue 2 requires the Ohio Supreme Court to select one of the plans the commission considered. If the selected plan is challenged, the Ohio Supreme Court would rule on the challenge, possibly ruling on the same plan they selected. Issue 2 inappropriately involves Ohio’s judiciary in the political redistricting process. I believe, especially as an attorney, the judiciary must remain fair, impartial, and independent. Issue 2 directly involves the Ohio judiciary in the political redistricting process, which is why I am voting against Issue 2 and would strongly urge you to do likewise. —Tom Guillozet Piqua

Ruby Bridges reflects on her life at book festival BY STACEY PLAISANCE Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Ruby Bridges remembers how excited she was when an anonymous donor sent Dr. Seuss books to her New Orleans home in 1960, the year she ended segregation in local public education by enrolling at a previously allwhite elementary school. The civil rights icon says

NEW YORK (AP) — When two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks found out he was being honored by the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity at the New York Public Library, he remembered he owed a couple of books. “I’ve got to turn them in from 1977,” Hanks said on the red carpet before going into the gala event. Hanks, accompanied by his wife Rita Wilson, joked that when he got the call from the foundation, he responded, “No, this is the Hanks house,” followed by

They were pivotal not only to her passion for reading, but also to her later

work to get books to as many schoolchildren as possible. Bridges will be furthering that mission Friday and Saturday at the New Orleans Children’s Book Fes-

tival, an event she launched with Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s wife, Cheryl Landrieu, in 2010. Free books will be distributed and Bridges and others will read.

“really” and “why?” Hanks posed on the red carpet with Wilson, his son Colin, of “Dexter” fame, and Wiesel, too. Hanks’ consistent thoughtfulness and concern with his charitable endeavors earned him the honor. He holds it higher than his acting accolades, but also realizes that the two are connected. He’s proud of the work he does, and by virtue of being in a few successful movies, feels that put him in a position to be altruistic. “We work very hard in a business that deserves and earns every bit of ridicule that we heap upon it. But at the end of the day you got to

wake up in the morning and try to make the world a better place,” Hanks said. The 56-year old actor says that’s the way he was raised. “We’re American, and Americans take into account the common good. So in that regard, I feel very lucky and very blessed that I’ve been able to do that, when I’ve been able to do that,” Hanks said. While Hanks says he recognizes the importance of philanthropic work, he feels that arts education still needs government support. “I believe any form of government, particularly ours in the United States of America, has been over and over again

this engine for social change in a magnificent way when it gets around to doing the right thing. And right now, I think we’re putting a lot of emphasis on the idea that philanthropy can take care of everything, which is not the case,” Hanks said. He feels it’s up to elected officials to understand the good things that the arts can do for the future of our country. “Sometimes that’s the arts, and sometimes it’s other things like taking care of folks that don’t have any way of fixing their teeth. That’s not bad, either,” Hanks said.

I’m still happy, but too much of my time is being spent on this. Apparently, there’s a disorder similar to anorexia known as orthorexia. It’s the psychological obsession with eating healthy.

Screen kids’ brains, genes to ID future criminals? If you read judicial opinions in serious crime cases, which always seem to describe every gruesome and salacious detail, you will almost surely reach two conclusions. First, no “normal” person could ever commit many of the horrific acts described in those cases. Second, everyone involved would be so much better off if we could have somehow anticipated and prevented those crimes from occurring in the first place. The perpetrators themselves might be leading normal lives if their violent tendencies were identified and treated before they committed their crimes. Even more importantly, the innocent victims, as well as their loved ones, would of course greatly benefit from not having been murdered or assaulted. The idea that we could prevent crime by identifying and treating minors predisposed to violent behavior has long been contemplated and debated. Leon Kass, who would later chair President Bush’s Bioethics Commission, wrote in Science in 1971

that while he served in the federal government in the 1960s a proposal was “tendered and supported high in government” that called for the psychological testing of all 6-year-olds in the nation to detect “future criminals and misfits.” The proposal was rejected because the then-available tests of future criminal behavior lacked sufficient predictive accuracy. But in the future, asked Kass,“will such a proposal be rejected if reliable tests become available?” We are now reaching a critical juncture where scientific developments in both genetics and neuroscience may soon be able to identify children with a greatly increased risk of engaging in future violent activity. In the genetics field, mutations in the MAOA gene, in combination with an abusive upbringing in the early years of life, substantially increase the risk of future antisocial and violent conduct. In the original study by Avshalom Caspi and colleagues, 85 percent of males who had the mutated form of the MAOA gene, combined with severe mistreatment in the early years of life, engaged in some form of antisocial behavior, whereas fewer

than 20 percent of children with the normal MAOA allele and the same abusive environment engaged in such behavior. This type of study with the MAOA gene has been repeated many times now, with most of the followup studies replicating the original findings. To date, the genetic risk associated with MAOA mutations has been used in the legal system primarily as mitigating evidence (with only limited success to date) to reduce the sentence of a criminal with the genetic predisposition. Obviously, in these cases, the crime has already been committed. But perhaps we could look for that genetic marker before any crime is committed — and there are other red

■ Living with Children

Irrational fears?


A: I don’t generally believe that adults should make accommodations in response to a school-age child’s irrational fears (I make certain exceptions for certain fears in toddlers and preschoolers), and a fear of aquariumcontained sharks is certainly irrational. Dragging your son kicking and screaming into the ocean would be an egregious breach of parenting protocol, but this is a far different matter. You should simply tell your son that he has no choice but to go on the field trip. His fear of sharks does not qualify him as a special-needs student. Suggest that he closes his eyes when the class enters the shark exhibit. He most definitely should not be allowed to request that one of the adults going on the field trip stay outside the exhibit with him, and you should definitely communicate that expectation to his teacher. More generally, one of the most counterproductive things parents can do is try to talk children out of irrational fears. Paradoxically, that sort of very well-intentioned attempt is likely to make matters worse. The more parents talk to a child about fears—in this case, any attempt on your part to reassure your son that the sharks are fully contained and that the tanks won’t suddenly break and release a contagion of airbreathing, fin-walking, man-eating sharks on the city—the more likely it is that the fear will become a self-drama, a personal soap opera the child will employ to attract undue attention to himself and control various situations. Simply tell your son,

“After much thought as well as consultation with a psychologist who has devoted his career to the study and treatment of children’s fears of aquarium sharks, we’ve decided you’re going on the school trip to the aquarium. You have our permission to close your eyes when the class goes into the shark exhibit, but you do not have our permission to inconvenience your teacher or any other adult because of your fear.” If he persists in trying to persuade you to change your mind, sit down in a comfortable chair and say, “Now that I’m comfortable, you have my permission to try your best to make me change my mind. I will listen to anything you have to say.” After he makes his best attempt to get you to reconsider your decision,

aged 3-5 years with better nutrition, more physical exercise and intellectual stimulation reduced criminal offenses at age 23 by 34 percent. A growing body of studies is showing that social, behavioral, nutritional or pharmaceutical interventions can reduce the antisocial or violent behavior of at-risk youths. As potential treatments and other strategies are identified, however, we will need concerted research programs to test those ideas on children identified to be at risk for future violence. Such studies will have to be designed and implemented carefully to avoid or minimize stigmatization and privacy pitfalls. Moreover, the children included in these studies shouldn’t be identified by mass screenings at school, but by aberrant behavior, followed by genetic or neurologic testing. Critics of such biologybased preventive approaches emphasize that the environment also plays a critical role in ultimate behavior. But that is the point. By favorably altering the environment of biologically predisposed children, we may be able to avoid the horrific outcomes that would otherwise result. This article arises from Future Tense, a partnership of Slate, the New America Foundation and Arizona State University that explores emerging technologies and their implications for public policy and for society.

: Because he is afraid of sharks, my fourth-grade son does not want to participate in an upcoming school field trip to an aquarium. In all other respects, he is perfectly normal. He’s a great student, has lots of friends, and other parents and teachers love him. He doesn’t give us or his teachers any problems at all. So, should we make him go on this field trip or not? If he doesn’t go, he’ll have to sit in the principal’s office all day long. The only other option is to let him stay home that day. Your thoughts?

flags we can look for as well. For instance,Adrian Raine of the University of Pennsylvania found that a brain abnormality (called cavum septum pellucidum) detected in the fetus was associated with subsequent antisocial behaviors. Another study found that poor fear conditioning (which is the anxiety most of us learn to feel when we do something antisocial) at age 3, indicative of amygdala dysfunction, predisposes individuals to crime at age 23. Yet another study used functional MRI to identify brain patterns correlated with increased impulsivity in incarcerated juveniles. This is just a small sampling of a growing body of experimental findings linking neurological traits with criminal propensity in children. Such tests are never likely to be deterministic or completely accurate. They will identify only increased probabilities of violent behaviors, not certainties. But before we get much further down this road, we need to start think-

ing about whether and how we want to use this capability to identify at-risk children. There are many obvious detriments and risks in trying to identify such children. First, the data we have are based primarily on group averages, and when applied to individuals, they will result in both false positives and false negatives. Second, there is a long history of eugenic and racist attempts to use biological characteristics to discriminate, creating understandable concerns about going down that road again. Third, tagging a child as a potential future criminal will have many kinds of detrimental psychological impacts for that child and those who interact with him. Fourth, there will undoubtedly be privacy and confidentiality concerns and breaches regarding individuals’ test results. Perhaps the most critical question is, what do we do with such children when we identify them? Given the serious risks and consequences associated with trying to detect at-risk children through their genetics and/or neuroscience, it seems that such efforts would only make sense, if at all, if there were effective strategies to treat such children to prevent their violent futures. Happily, there are some early indications that this may be feasible. For example, one study found that enriching the environment of at-risk children

Clint Bowyer’s three victories this season (Sonoma, Richmond, Charlotte). “It’s fun to walk to Victory Lane,” Bowyer says. “Let me tell you, that’s the best walk you could ever have. I think that’s my new trademark. I’ll walk home if it means Victory Lane.” YEAR Bowyer’s third win is 2 CAREER the most for a Michael Waltrip Racing entry in the Cup Series since the organization’s full-time debut in 2007. Prior to 2012, MWR recorded two Cup wins, both coming with David Reutimann (2009, 2010). Bowyer’s win total is also his highest in any single season since his first year in the Cup Series (2006). The Kansas native now owns eight career wins as a Cup driver to go along with eight Nationwide and three Truck Series victories. 35 NASCAR announced 3 onGOODBYE, Tuesday that its “Top 35 Rule” will be no more in 2013. Currently, the top 35 teams in owner’s points are locked into each race. Beginning next season, the fastest 36 cars in qualifying will makes up positions 1-36 on race day. Positions 37-42 will be filled by provisionals determined by owner points, while the 43rd spot will be occupied by either a seventh provisional or a past champion. HARD TO BEAT Joey Logano’s Na4 tionwide Series win in the Dollar General 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway was his eighth of the 2012 season. The number is more impressive in that Logano has made only 18 of the series’ 29 starts this year. Elliott Sadler and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.—the top two in the series championship standings—have combined for nine wins.

A New Hope

Clint Bowyer wins at Charlotte, keeps championship drive alive


Athlon Sports Racing Editor

After four races, Brad Keselowski, Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin had seemingly separated themselves in NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup. Not so fast, says Clint Bowyer. As the sport’s version of a playoff completed the “first half” of its 10race run, Bowyer and his No. 15 Michael Waltrip Racing team used strategy to outsmart the trio of favorites, winning the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with superior fuel mileage. Bowyer’s third win of the season moved his team to within 28 points of Keselowski in the championship standings. “I looked at it last week and going into this week, I still thought if one of those guys (Keselowski, Johnson, Hamlin) were to stub a toe, it really would open the door for about eight of us to get right back into the championship hunt,” Bowyer said. “With a win here, it definitely gave us new life and new hope.” Crew chief Brian Pattie echoed the sentiment, saying that, “Twentyeight points is achievable over the next five weeks. It’s a lot better than 40, how we started the weekend. “There’s three guys you’ve got to pass, not only the points. We’ll go to Kansas on Wednesday and test like hell and try to pick up our program even more than we have now because we weren’t the fastest car tonight, we just had (a winning) strategy. It would be nice to win one of these things and actually drive to Victory Lane.” Keselowski, Johnson and Hamlin flexed their muscles throughout a tame event, leading a total of 228 of 334 laps, that witnessed five cautions, two of which were for debris. On lap 275, Keselowski’s No. 2 Penske Racing team did something it had largely avoided the previous four weeks: It made a mistake. While attempting to stretch a tank of fuel, the championship leader— who led the most laps in the event

(139)—ran out of gas while leading and coasted into the pits. That opened the door for Bowyer, Johnson and Hamlin. With Keselowski mired in traffic, they went into fuel conservation mode, reasoning that, with one more full green-flag cycle left, everyone would be running on fumes as the race reached its conclusion. And they were right. The twist, though, was that Bowyer was a forgotten soul, as the teams of Johnson and Hamlin calculated that they were the only two that would have enough in reserve to stretch one final cycle. “We outfoxed him,” Bowyer said of Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus. “Any time you outfox him you know you’ve done a good job, especially at this racetrack.” The miscalculations were not especially harmful to Johnson and Hamlin, though, as the latter fin-

I On Oct. 11, Hendrick Motorsports an-

nounced that Dale Earnhardt Jr. would miss the NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Charlotte and Kansas due to concussions suffered in a testing crash at Kansas Speedway on Aug. 29 and on a last-lap crash at Talladega on Oct. 7. “If you have more than one in a small period of time you need to take that quite seriously,” Earnhardt said. “The one in Kansas was really bad and to get shaken up so quickly (at Talladega) over something so trivial—that one shook me up and I thought I should take that seriously.” Regan Smith is driving Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 88 Chevy in Earnhardt’s absence.

ished second and the former third. Even Keselowski, who managed an 11th-place showing, did not appear to be distraught. He explained that aggressiveness was what got his team here, and one shouldn’t expect them to back off from that stance: “We’re not going to put the prevent defense out there. We’re going to go at you and try to sack the quarterback every time. Sometimes you’re going to miss, and they’re going to get a big payoff. “We have hit them a lot, that’s why we’re in the points lead, and we’re going to keep after it.” Fair enough. And the next stop for NASCAR’s traveling circus is the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway, Bowyer’s home track. And a place that has seen Keselowski, Johnson and Hamlin each score a win in the series’ last three visits. For those still alive with five races remaining, hope springs eternal.

I NASCAR and FOX Sports Media Group announced on Monday an eight-year, multi-platform media rights agreement that ensures FOX’s broadcast of NASCAR racing through 2022. FOX will once again air 13 Sprint Cup races as well as having full-season rights to NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series. Beginning next year, FOX will live stream its races—including pre- and post-race coverage to its FOX-affiliated website via “TV Everywhere.” The Sports Business Journal valued the deal at more than $2.4 billion. It’s believed the current NASCAR/FOX deal, which began in 2006, is worth $1.76 billion.

Athlon Fantasy Stall Looking at Checkers: Hard to beat Jimmie Johnson’s 10 top 10s (two wins) in 12 Kansas starts. Pretty Solid Pick: Brad Keselowski has a win and a third-place finish in two of his last three Kansas starts. Good Sleeper Pick: Greg Biffle has undewhelmed in the Chase, but he will not this weekend. Runs on Seven Cylinders: Kyle Busch has only two top 10s in his 10 starts here. Insider Tip: Johnson, Keselowsk and Denny Hamlin—the three championship leaders—have won the last three Kansas Cup races.

Kansas Speedway It was 2001, and Jeff Gordon was rolling. Well on his way to a fourth Winston Cup title, Gordon and his No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team led 53 laps in the inaugural race at Kansas Speedway in the Protection One 400. Gordon and Rusty Wallace, who led 117 laps, were in a dogfight for the lead with just under 50 laps to go, but a caution brought the field to pit road. On exit, Wallace was busted for speeding and sent to the end of the longest line for the restart. Ricky Rudd, in the No. 28 Havoline Ford, assumed the lead and led 14 laps until Gordon and Mark Martin got by him with 23 laps remaining just prior to a vicious wreck by Dale Jarrett that briefly knocked him unconscious. Gordon held on from there, beating Ryan Newman, in his sixth career start, by .413 seconds.

It’s hard to maintain a 3.75-place average finish, which is what Keselowski owned through four Chase races. His 11th-place run is by no means crippling, but it tightened the gap up top. It seems the Talladega race (17th) is the only thing keeping him out of the points lead. Throw out that wreck-induced result and Johnson’s Chase shapes up like this: Second, second, fourth, third. His 13 top 5s is second only to Johnson’s 16. The difference is that (especially in the Chase) his lows have been lower. Fuel mileage once again came in between him and a win on Saturday. The most impressive aspect of Bowyer’s (and MWR’s) three victories: They’ve come on a road course (Sonoma), short track (Richmond) and intermediate track (Charlotte). Well rounded. His top-3 streak comes to an end in Charlotte after getting busted for speeding on pit road. Better times are ahead at Kansas and Martinsville. Kahne’s 8.6-place average Chase finish ain’t too shabby. And at 35 points out, he isn’t completely done in the championship battle. Needs a couple wins to really convince us. Three consecutive showings of seventh or better find Busch ... still in 13th. That 16th in Richmond has to really be smarting right about now, he’d be fifth in the standings had he made the Chase. After stumbling out of the gate, Biffle has righted the ship to the tune of sixth- and fourth-place finishes. Too little, too late, unfortunately. Stewart continues his maddeningly inconsistent year. Following fourth-, sixth- and seventh-place runs, he’s slumped to results of 20th, 22nd and 13th. Head-scratcher. Kenseth’s win at Talladega was no fluke, but when one considers his other Chase showings (18th, 14th, 35th and 14th) it puts the plate tracks in their anomalous perspective. Bowyer’s MWR teammate registered his third top-10 performance of the Chase in Charlotte. When he’s entered, he’s a threat. See: Richmond (third), Dover (third) and Charlotte (sixth). Richard Childress Racing is beefing up for some offseason personnel changes. Edwards has been fifth and seventh in his last two non-restrictor-place starts. Quicken Loans doubles their sponsorship of Newman to 18 races in 2013. Kurt Busch, Sam Hornish Jr., Joey Logano, Paul Menard, Regan Smith

Buck Eyes An inside look at Ohio State football SAY WHAT?

“It felt like we lost.”

5: What year was the first night

— Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier talks about Ohio State’s offense giving up 49 points against Indiana, including 15 points in the final two minutes, in a 52-49 win last Saturday night.

J.T. Barrett, a quarterback who is a 2013 Ohio State verbal commitment will have surgery to repair a torn ACL and torn meniscus. Barrett, rated the top dual threat quarterback recruit in the country by some talent evaluators, rushed for 571 yards and passed for 764 in five games for Rider (Texas) High School. Ezekiel Elliott, a running back from St. Louis John Burroughs High School, who is a 2013 Ohio State verbal commitment, has 28 touchdowns in his team’s first seven games. Tony Stevens, a wide receiver in the 2013 recruiting class, has backed off a commitment to Florida State and reportedly will visit Ohio State the week of the Michigan game.

AFTER OSU: Workman was a fifth-round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers in 1989 and played eight seasons in the NFL. His best season was when he ran for 631 yards for the Packers in 1992.

No. 7 Ohio State vs. Purdue, Noon, Saturday, ABC QUARTERBACKS


Braxton Miller (1,271 yards passing, 912 yards rushing) has rushed for more than 100 yards five times this season. He added to the Heisman Trophy talk around him with 367 yards total offense in a 52-49 win over Indiana. Some people say if you play two quarterbacks, you really don’t have a No. 1 QB. So what do you have if you’ve played three quarterbacks, like Purdue has this season? Robert Marve (49 of 73 for 500 yards, 4 TDs) started the season opener, suffered a torn ACL the second week of the season but has returned, wearing a brace, to back up current starter Caleb TerBush (74 of 126 for 716 yards, 8 TDs). Rob Henry (12 of 23 for 113 yards, 1 TD) also has played. Advantage: Ohio State

Corey Brown has 41 catches and has caught at least three passes in every game this season. He showed his speed on a 12-yard touchdown run on a pitchout from Miller against Indiana. Devin Smith had touchdown catches of 60 yards and 46 yards against Indiana but also had two glaring drops. The sophomore receiver has the confidence to shake off mistakes like that now, where it would have crushed him as recently as last spring, coach Urban Meyer says. For Purdue, slot receiver O.J. Ross (38 catches, 299 yards) has caught the most passes, but Antavian Edison (31 catches, 371 yards, 5 touchdowns) might be the most dangerous receiver. Gary Bush has four touchdown receptions. Advantage: Even

OFFENSIVE LINE Ohio State’s tackles, Jack Mewhort and Reid Fragel, are playing at a high level but the interior linemen need to get to that level, according to Meyer. Tight end Jeff Heuerman’s blocking, along with his pass catching ability, has moved him to the top of the depth chart at that position. Purdue’s offensive line has struggled against the three best teams it has faced — Notre Dame, Michigan and Wisconsin. In those three games, the Boilermakers have averaged 91 yards a game rushing and allowed a total of 11 sacks. Advantage: Ohio State

DEFENSIVE LINE End Nathan Williams is expected to return after missing last week’s game with a concussion. Freshman Noah Spence, a speed rusher like Williams, could be on the field at the same time as Williams this week. Purdue’s line, led by NFL prospect Kawaan Short, was supposed to be the strength of its defense. But in the last two weeks, the Boilermakers have allowed 467 yards rushing in a 38-14 loss to Wisconsin and 304 yards rushing in a 44-13 loss to Michigan. Short has nine tackles for losses and four sacks. Advantage: Purdue

LINEBACKERS Dire straits is how Meyer described the situation at linebacker that led him to move starting fullback Zach Boren into the lineup on defense last week. Boren, who had eight tackles against Indiana, will remain at linebacker for the short term and possibly the rest of the season. Will Lucas, a two-year starter, leads Purdue with 33 tackles, has 3.5 tackles for losses and an interception. Advantage: Even

BRADLEY ROBY The 5-foot-11, 190-pound sophomore defensive back from Suwanee, Ga. has been solid on a defense that has struggled in recent weeks. He’s fourth on the team with 34 tackles, 21 solo, with two interceptions for 49 yards with a touchdown and a blocked kick.

DEFENSIVE BACKS Tackling and coverage remain issues. OSU ranks last in the Big Ten in pass defense. It has given up seven plays of 50 yards or more and 30 that have covered 20 yards or more. Last year’s defense, which struggled much of the season, allowed 37 plays of 20 yards or more in 13 games. Purdue has had its own struggles defensively and cornerback Ricardo Allen, expected to be an NFL prospect, has only one interception. Advantage: Even

RUNNING BACKS Carlos Hyde looked like the combination of power and speed Ohio State expected when it recruited him when he rushed for 156 yards in a 52-49 win over Indiana last week. The 235-pound Hyde (454 yards rushing) had four runs of more than 20 yards and turned a shovel pass from Kenny Guiton into a 14-yard touchdown catch. He has gone over 100 yards the last two games. Akeem Shavers (324 yards rushing) and Akeem Hunt (257 yards rushing) lead Purdue’s ground game. Most of Hunt’s yardage has come on two carries — an 81-yard run against Wisconsin and a 56-yarder against Eastern Michigan. Advantage: Ohio State

SPECIAL TEAMS Purdue has blocked five punts in its first six games, four of them by Short. But the Boilermakers, like Ohio State, have had trouble keeping opposing defenses away from their punter, allowing three of their own punts to be blocked punts. OSU has blocked two punts. Ohio State kicker Drew Basil is 3 for 4 on field goals but has not made a kick of longer than 35 yards this season. Freshman Paul Griggs is 3 for 3 for Purdue with a long kick of 42 yards.

Midseason Big Ten award winners It hasn’t exactly been an awardwinning football season for the Big Ten this fall. With a month and a half left in the regular season, the conference already knows it won’t be contending for the BCS national championship. And there have been some embarrassing losses. But even in not-so-good seasons, awards are handed out. Here are some midseason awards in the Big Ten: Offensive Player of the Year: By any standard — whether you add up the numbers or you look for the player who has meant the most to his team this season — you end up selecting Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller. Runners-up: Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin, Michigan State running back Le’Veon Bell. Defensive Player of the Year: Michael Mauti of Penn State for his work defending against Big Ten opponents and for being the vocal leader in defending his team against transfers when other teams began recruiting the roster of the scandalridden Nittany Lions. Runner-up: John Simon (Ohio State) Kicker of the Year: Iowa’s Mike Meyer has hit 14 of 15 field goals in the first half of the season and has scored 54 of the Hawkeyes’ 132 points. Runner-up: Jeff Budzien (Northwestern) Coach of the Year: You can make a case for Bill O’Brien at Penn State, but only one team has a zero in the loss column. Ohio State’s Urban Meyer wins it, not just for starting 7-0 but for snapping OSU out of the depression it was in after scandal, the forced resignation of a legendary coach and a 6-7 season. Runners-up: Bill O’Brien (Penn State), Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern) Most Overrated Team in Preseason: Sparty rhymes with party but Michigan State hasn’t had a lot of fun. After being ranked No. 13 in the preseason Associated Press poll, MSU has started 4-3 and already has two Big Ten losses. And the Spartans still have to play Michigan, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Northwestern in a row. Runner-up: Wisconsin. Most Overrated Coaching Change: Firing Ron Zook hasn’t worked out as well for Illinois as it did for Florida when it canned him and replaced him with Meyer, who won two national championships with the Gators. Illinois lost its last six games last season, which doomed Zook. But the Illini, who have lost five of their first seven games this season, don’t look any better so far for new coach Tim Beckman.

Meyer delivers message More involved with defense BY JIM NAVEAU Lima News COLUMBUS – Before he ever said a word, Urban Meyer delivered a message to Ohio State’s defensive players on Sunday. After the Buckeyes hung on for a 52-49 win over Indiana, last Saturday — which was the most points allowed by an OSU defense since 1994 — Meyer said he planned to become more involved with the defense. That involvement began the next day when he appeared in the defensive meetings to review Saturday’s game against IU. He told the defense he was disappointed with how they’d played, but just seeing the head coach, who had concentrated on the offense until then, sent a message, cornerback Travis Howard said. Meyer’s message was not complicated. “Eliminate the big play,” he said. “I met with the entire defensive team and the defensive staff. Instead of just making noise and whining, we have to put a plan together and that’s to eliminate big plays. “It’s been absurd how many big plays we’ve given up,” Meyer added. Meyer’s message of change was delivered calmly. “I’m not a big believer in just screaming and yelling and throwing Gatorade bottles against the wall. “Sometimes you have to do that. However, you fix what the problem is.” The first test of Ohio State’s ability to cut down on big plays by the opposition will come against Purdue on Saturday. Meyer said his presence See DEFENSE/Page 14

Talk of track at Piqua High School Indians baseball primed for strong year in 1917 The spring of 1917 looked like a banner year for the baseball team, and in addition the idea of adding a track team at Piqua High School again was broached. “The high school athletes will start practice next week in both baseball and track work. The organization of a track team will be completed and meets secured with several surrounding towns, as soon as possible. “There is some chance of a meet with Troy, says a Troy paper. Coach Ditmer, in speaking of this work, said that little could be told about the material until they were actually in training.” He further said that Piqua should have little trouble in organizing a team as other schools much smaller than Piqua have had exceedingly successful teams on the track. “In view of the success of Piqua in other athletic ventures they certainly should be able to organize a track team that will

make its mark in the record of Ohio high schools in this line of work.” Two weeks later, another article dealt with the matter of a track team. “Little interest is being shown by the boys at the high school in track work. An attempt has been made to organize a team but so far it has been unsuccessful. “The high school was invited to participate in the track meet at Miami University the latter part of the month. Sidney, Troy, Greenville, and other neighboring towns are entering teams. “Coach Ditmer has often expressed his wish for a track team as that is one of the branches of athletics in which he had been mostly interested. “Certainly with the material available a team that could at least uphold the pride of Piqua high school could be organized. “Meetings have been held where the boys have

discussed all departments of track work, but no definite decisions have they ever been able to reach. “Quite a lot of good material is among the boys interested in athletics, especially in running and jumping. “Several of the boys in the minor contests in the gymnasium have jumped to a height not easily reached.” No further articles were shared and the matter of a track team for 1917 was never mentioned again during the school year. The baseball opener was against Greenville. “P.H.S. opened its baseball season with a victory yes-

terday afternoon. Greenville was defeated by a score of 17 to 4. They proved easy for the local boys who have been practicing hard and were in good shape in spite of the limited time which they had to practice. “The game was in no way exciting and worthy of little more than passing interest.” World War I and inclement weather shortened the baseball season and games with Dayton Steele, Urbana and Bellefontaine were cancelled. The next contest was at Sidney. “Piqua high has another baseball victory to add to its record. Yesterday afternoon at Sidney the local boys cleaned up on the Sidneyites 15 to 0. “The Piqua lads were a little fearful of the outcome of this game as they have been on the field but once before this season. Their pitcher had nothing but a spit ball and he didn’t know where that was going.”

The first of two games with Troy followed. “Piqua’s first downfall came at Troy yesterday afternoon when the Trojans defeated the Piqua boys 7 to 4. “A fair crowd from Piqua witnessed the game, in fact, more Piquads were present than Trojans. “The nine did the best work possible but an unfortunate accident had much to do with the outcome of the game. “In the first half of the fourth Captain Strohmeier was hit by a pitched ball. “The ball struck him squarely in the head and it was necessary to carry him from the field. His condition is reported as not serious. “This took the captain and catcher from the game and as Coach Ditmer accompanied the lad from the field it also left them without a coach. However, Troy won the

Bengals rookie could make debut Sunday East spikes National Trail CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is getting close to his injury-delayed debut. The Cincinnati Bengals' top draft pick hurt his left knee while working out during the summer, forcing him to miss out on the chance to compete for a starting job during training camp. Finally, the knee is healed and the 17th overall pick in the draft is ready to get on the field for the first time. It could happen Sunday night against Pittsburgh. "It's possible," coach Marvin Lewis said on Wednesday. "We'll see what happens through the week." The Bengals (3-3) have struggled to overcome a series of injuries to defensive backs all season, starting with Kirkpatrick's knee. They have only two interceptions, tied with Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Detroit for second-fewest in the league. Dallas has only one. Cincinnati has repeatedly shuffled its secondary, finally deciding to start Terence Newman at cornerback opposite Leon Hall and moving cornerback Nate Clements to safety, which has been a problem area. They also brought back safety Chris Crocker, who has one of the two interceptions. Defensive lineman Michael Johnson has the other. Kirkpatrick expected to be playing long before now. He recovered from the knee injury in time to practice in August and was hoping to play in the final preseason game at Indianapolis. He developed tendinitis in the knee after a few practices, forcing him to back off the workouts. He was cleared to resume practice on a limited basis two weeks ago, and has gradually increased his number of plays. "I'm coming along," Kirkpatrick said Wednesday before practice. "I'm getting there. Every day is a process, and I'm managing it well and going as hard as I can every day." Kirkpatrick still gets treatment on the knee, but said it hasn't given him any problems. He found it easy to be patient when he was just starting his rehabilitation program. "Early on it was because I knew I couldn't go out there," he said. "Now it gets frustrating sometime, but my dad is a pastor and he is putting wisdom and the right things in my head." The Bengals have to decide whether to let him play on Sunday night against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers (2-

3), or sit him one more game and then give him the bye week to do more catching up. The Bengals play against Denver and the Giants coming out of their bye. Kirkpatrick knows that Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning will make a point to test a rookie cornerback. "It's not going to be easy," he said. "Every day is a challenge. That's why I look up to the leaders to help me in the film room and show me what I'm not doing right." Lewis likes how Kirkpatrick looks during practice, when he splits time with the starting defense and the reserves. "I've been really impressed with Dre Kirkpatrick in practice — more impressed than any time he's been here," Lewis said. "Even more impressive than when he was here in rookie minicamp. He's competing well, he's practicing very hard, he's getting his conditioning to where it needs to be to sustain playing in an NFL game, play after play after play. "He said this is the best he's felt since 2010 at Alabama. He said the knee bothered him most of last year, so he's feeling good about it." Cornerback Leon Hall missed two games with a hamstring and calf injury. He has started the last two at right cornerback, with Newman across the field. Adding Kirkpatrick as an extra cornerback would give the Bengals another playmaker on passing downs. Hall thinks the secondary is settling down after being in flux because of injuries. "I think we are kind of getting into a little bit of a groove," Hall said. "We are still making some mistakes that are pretty big within the game. As far as having the same people out there and having some confidence and trust in people out on the field with you, it is definitely better." NOTES: RB Brian Leonard missed practice Wednesday with sore ribs, injured during the second half of the loss in Cleveland on Sunday. Lewis said he's day-to-day. Otherwise, the Bengals are in good health heading into the Steelers game. ... C Kyle Cook walked around the locker room without a boot on his right foot, a sign of improvement. Cook hurt his right ankle in the final preseason game. Although he went on injured reserve, the Bengals designated him as their player who could return to the active roster if he heals during the season.

PLEASANT HILL — Newton was able to advance to the Division III Sectional final after defeating Tri-County North 8-0 on Thursday night. Newton will play Greeneview in the sectional finals at 7 p.m. Monday at Fairborn. Levi Armentrout led Newton with three goals and two assists. Austin Flanary had two goals and an assist, Jonny White and Logan Welbaum each had a goal and

an assist, Leo Rossi also had a goal and Mitch Hussong had an assist. Alexander Gavin recorded his eighth shutout of the season in goal and also had a windaided assist on a long punt. D-III Volleyball BROOKVILLE — Miami East spiked National Trail 25-4, 25-9, 2513 Thursday. East plays Brookville at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Defense Continued from page 13 in the defensive meeting room did not signal a lack of trust in his assistant coaches. “I think my job is to support our staff, support our players. Calling defenses, I’ll give my ideas but it would be a mistake for me to come in (and call plays). We have very good coaches, very good coaches,” he said. Co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell has taken some heat from fans and on sports talk shows for Ohio State’s defensive struggles. He says it’s part of the game when you’re a coach. “If you could put more pressure on me that I put on myself, I don’t know if you could do that. The outside pressures — I don’t feel them,” he said. Fickell also emphasized not allowing big plays. “Don’t whine, don’t complain, don’t make excuses,” he said. “We know it’s about big plays, and if we can limit big plays, we’ll be in a lot better situation.” OSU made one personnel change on defense last week when it moved starting fullback Zach Boren to inside linebacker. Meyer called that move “temporarily permanent” and hinted another change could be coming after freshman defensive end Noah Spence played well at Indiana. “The thing you have to ask yourself is that Nathan Williams and Noah Spence play the

same position so let’s have a conversation about that and we are. How to get them both on the field at the same time is what the conversation is about,” he said. Despite being known for his high-scoring offenses, Meyer says the best teams emphasize defense. “When you get to where the air is rare, the real elite teams, at some point you got to play some real good defense,” he said. WILLIAMS EXPECTED BACK: Williams, who missed last week’s game at Indiana with a concussion, is expected to play this Saturday. Running back Jordan Hall is doubtful against Purdue. “He’s jogging but he’s not healing real well,” Meyer said. Hall suffered a partial tear of the posterior cruciate ligament in his knee at Michigan State on Sept. 29. PENN STATE KICKOFF MOVED: Ohio State’s game at Penn State on Oct. 27 will kick off at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN. It was originally scheduled for 6 p.m. MORE TIME FOR HEUERMAN: Tight end Jeff Heuerman played his best game at Ohio State, Meyer said. Heuerman played 48 plays against Indiana and will play more in the future. Meyer also said wide receiver Jake Stoneburner played his best game.


Trent Richardson will wear a flak jacket Sunday.

Richardson not ‘bullet proof’ Will wear flak jacket Sunday BEREA (AP) — Trent Richardson might think he's Superman. Just in case, the Browns are going to have him wear a flak jacket to guard his ribs. "He's wearing something that's bullet proof," cracked coach Pat Shurmur. "He told me he thought he already was." Richardson will be equipped with protective padding over a rib cartilage injury Sunday when the Browns play the Indianapolis Colts. Richardson was injured in last week's win over Cincinnati, taking a helmet to the right side in the first quarter. The injury made it difficult for Richardson to breathe, and he was taken out in the third quarter by Shurmur and team doctors before he made it worse. The first-round draft pick was limited in practice on Thursday, but he's expected to face the Colts (2-3), who gave up 252 rushing yards last week to the New York Jets. Richardson said the added padding won't change the way he plays. "My game's not going to be no different," he said. "I'm still going to play physical and play hardnosed football, smashmouth football. “That's what I was brought up to do, and that's how I know how to play football." Shurmur is confident backups Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya will produce if Richardson, who gained 37 yards on 14 carries last week against the Bengals, is limited. Hardesty replaced Richardson last week and ran for 56 yards and scored his first career TD as the Browns got

their first win this season and snapped an 11-game losing streak back to last November. "You've seen us play multiple backs with Montario, and then Chris," Shurmur said. "Trent's our starting running back. Ideally, you would like to see him the highest percentage of the snaps first, second, third down, backed up, going in, short yardage. You would want him to be the main guy and then we'll just get a feel for the flow of the game. "I trust those other guys behind him to go in there and do what they've got to do." Last week was a breakout for Hardesty, who has been slowed by injuries the past two seasons. But the former second-round pick ran with conviction against the Bengals, helping the Browns end a 12game losing streak inside the AFC North. "He has a little different pace than Trent does," offensive coordinator Brad Childress said. "He was juiced up pretty good. Whether it's the line decided to get it together at that point in time in conjunction with the guy that was running pretty well through there. It was kind of a perfect storm." Receiver Greg Little was sent home with flulike symptoms Thursday before the Browns practiced inside their field house because of rain. Little has 14 catches for 169 yards and one TD this season, but he has been plagued by dropped passes. Starting left guard Jason Pinkston also missed practice with an undisclosed illness.

Piqua hosted St. Paris the following week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Piqua high school baseball team indulged in a very enjoyable batting practice yesterday afternoon at Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s park.

at the same time putting up a game of baseball far below what they are capable of, the Red and Blue yesterday went down to defeat at the hands of Troy by a score of 5 to 1. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not preparedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is about the only reasonable excuse that can be advanced for the failure of the high school team to defeat Troy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Either this reason or lack of enthusiasm caused the players to lay off until the visitors had secured such a commanding lead that it was impossible to regain the lost ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Against every other team the locals have played this season a splendid showing was made, but with Troy the Piquads are simply at sea and cannot perform as

DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Max Scherzer capped a stupendous stretch for Detroit's starting rotation, and the Tigers advanced to the World Series for the second time in seven years by beating the New York Yankees 8-1 Thursday for a four-game sweep of the AL championship series. Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta hit tworun homers in a four-run fourth inning against CC Sabathia, who was unable to prevent the Yankees from getting swept in a postseason series for the first time in 32 years.
