Black Friday eats Thanksgiving Why must we buy? BY JESSE WASHINGTON Associated Press BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) — Gravy was still warm. Dallas Cowboys were still in uniform. Thanks were still being given across the country as the pilgrimages to the stores began, heralding a new era of American consumerism. Lured by earlier-than-ever Black Friday sales, people left Grandma and Grandpa in search of Samsung and Toshiba. They did not go blindly: In dozens of interviews, people acknowledged how spending has become inseparable from the holidays. Older folks pined for the days of Erector Sets and Thumbelinas while in line to pay iPad prices. Even some younger See SHOP/Page 3A

People wait in the rain at 4:30 a.m. Friday for Menards to open so they can be the first to get Black Friday deals. While Menard’s did not open its doors until early Friday morning, some, including Walmart and Peebles, opened on Thanksgiving Day, with special prices for those who couldn’t wait to start their shopping.

Ethics rules on lawmakers’ to-do list BY ANN SANNER Associated Press COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio lawmakers’ to-do list before the end of the year includes a possible update to the state’s ethics rules and a bill to protect young athletes against brain injuries. During the lame-duck session that continues after Thanksgiving break, legisla-

tive leader are also taking a hard look at possible changes to the state’s election rules and a bill to shuffle how public family-planning dollars are distributed. Republicans hold majorities in each chamber, and the GOP will have continued control when the newly elected General Assembly starts its session in January. Here’s a look at some issues

percolating in the Statehouse as the year winds down: ————— ABORTION: Leaders in both chambers are weighing whether to act on a bill that would boot Planned Parenthood to the back of the line for public family-planning money. Supporters of the measure say other quality providers of women’s health care have

sprung up around the state and the bill would give those centers a chance at government funds. But critics, including Democrats, argue Planned Parenthood provides needed preventive health care to low-income women that would be jeopardized by the bill. Underlying the debate is Planned Parenthood’s role as See TO DO/Page 4A

Gifts for Yanks Sidney American Legion Post 217 member Harold Everett, of Plattsville, watches as his wife, Francis, donates money to the “Gifts for Yanks” program at Sidney Food Town Friday. Harold was manning the kettle when his wife stopped by to chat and give him a break. The money goes toward hospitalized veterans.

ANNA — Anna Rescue Squad members have voted not to allow law enforcement officials to post a reward sign soliciting information regarding a possible arson fire at their squad building last spring. The blaze caused more than $100,000 damage to the building on S. Linden Avenue. Members voted recently during a squad meeting not to allow such a sign to be posted. The vote was confirmed by Squad Chief Dustin Murphy, who declined to say if he agreed with it. He said he wants the arson solved, however. A number of squad members have reportedly hired an attorney, something Murphy said he was unaware of. “I don’t know why they would obtain criminal lawyers. I have no idea,” he said. Regarding allegations by law enforcement that squad members are not cooperating

with the investigation, Murphy said, “we cooperate with them when they ask. It’s not a mandatory thing” (to post a sign). When contacted by the Sidney Daily News, several other squad members referred the newspaper to Victoria Rumer of Rumer and Maisch Co. LLC in Lima. The members declined to explain why they have obtained a criminal defense attorney as legal counsel. Despite the squad’s vote to refuse the posting of the reward sign, Lt. Det. Jim Frye, of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, said there will still be a reward offered. “The case is still actively being investigated,” Frye said. He stated he finds it odd the squad would refuse to post a reward sign through the Blue Ribbon Arson Campaign (BRAC). BRAC sponsors a fund for information leading to the identification of those responSee FIRE/Page 3A

Holiday shoppers warned of crash dangers COLUMBUS (AP) — Black Friday begins not only the holiday shopping season but the holiday rise in intersection crashes. The Ohio Department of Transportation warns drivers to be constantly vigilant in heavy shopping corridors to avoid crashes and injuries.

Some 410 intersection crashes resulted in serious injuries during the 2011 holiday season, an 18 percent increase over the previous year. Intersection crashes rose while the overall number of crashes fell for the period from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. The department re-

minded drivers a statewide texting ban is in effect. Under the law, adult drivers face a $150 fine for texting or using email while driving. Those under 18 are prohibited from using a mocommunications bile device while driving. Officials said driver distraction often plays a role in crashes.

shoppers said it felt wrong to be spending money instead of quality time on Thanksgiving. “But we’re still out here,” said Kelly Jackson, a paralegal who was standing inside a Best Buy store in the Pittsburgh suburbs, a 32-inch television ($189) in her cart. It was a consolation prize: Despite four hours on line, she missed the cheaper 40inchers ($179) that she had heard about while listening to Internet radio. Jackson’s resignation was common among those who flocked to capitalism’s temples for the consumer equivalent of genuflecting. Many said that this Black Friday bled into Thursday crossed a line, that merchants should not intrude like this. Christmas is about the message of Jesus, the feeling went — not about the gold, frankincense and myrrh. Yet amid these protests, people still talked about feeling powerless beneath the moment — as if they had no choice but to shop. “You have to have these things to enjoy your children and your family,” said Jackson’s friend Ebony Jones, who had secured two laptops ($187.99 each) for her 7 and 11 year olds. Why must we buy? To demonstrate our love for others? To add a few more inches to our televisions? To help America recover from a vicious recession that itself was born of the desire for more? Such questions make Jones wince. “It shouldn’t be that way, but in a sense there’s no way around it,” said Jones, a nurse. “Everything ends up with a dollar amount. Even your happiness.” Retailers have long capitalized on the holiday season’s perfect storm of emotion and tradition. “We all want to be loved, we all like to give love,” says Roger Beahme, director of the Center for Retail Innovation at the Wake Forest Schools of Business. Through a flood of advertising on TV, radio and newspapers, he says, retailers can create emotions. “Will Rogers said it’s the art of convincing people to spend money they don’t have on something they don’t need,” Beahme says. Although advertising can serve useful purposes, he says, “there’s some truth to that.” Many embrace the feeling — and have, in accelerating ways, for a generation and more. Without legions of believers, Black Friday never would have gotten this bold. Despite a surge of resistance as the sales drew near, with scolding editorials and protests by retail employees and reminders of frantic tramplings past, Black Friday’s grip on America

From Page 1 may have been proven stronger than ever this year. “It’s all part of the holiday — part of the tradition,” said Dennis River, a truck driver who was in line for a television at the Walmart in Beaver Falls, a small community outside of Pittsburgh. Last year, he went out alone at midnight Thursday. This year, he brought his wife and daughter. They were in place by 7 p.m. “You get up in the morning, cook, do your dinner and your football, then you go shopping,” River said. “It’s the new thing now. Everyone’s afraid of change.” “If they wanna have sales today,” he said, “I’m go shopping gonna today.” Walmart’s cavernous store is always open, but the deals began at 8 p.m. As with most big retail stores, a police car was parked near the Beaver Falls store entrance. A uniformed officer was at the door, near a stand holding maps to “featured products” such as bikes, cookware, sheets, video game consoles, and eight different TVs. The witching hour approached. Yellow CAUTION tape cordoned off the bargains and funneled a few thousand supplicants through aisles of ignored items — yarn, shower curtains, party hats, clocks. Balloons printed with dollar signs followed by low numbers floated above the treasures. As the cell phones struck eight, a din arose. Excited voices mixed with the sound of boxes dropping into metal shopping carts. The balloons danced as people dug into stacks of leather ottomans ($29) and 5-by-5 foot bins of $5 DVDs. The temperature climbed. An old man inched through the throng using a folding chair ($11.88) as a crutch. Traffic jammed. Complaints and a few curses echoed. “I’m not an angry person, but I was angry for the 20 minutes I was in there,” Danyel Coyne, a college student, said as she loaded a child booster seat ($12.98) into her trunk. She and her boyfriend, Mike Yanke, had not come to shop. They needed a spare car seat to take Yanke’s daughter back to Pittsburgh. Yet Yanke still had bought a red, battery-powered convertible ($129) at his dad’s request. “I wouldn’t say Black Friday has taken over,” said Dave Davies, a music producer who was part of the national parade of TVs (his was 50 inches and $399). “Shopping IS the holiday. That’s all people care about — what are you gonna get?” For some, the items themselves can even take a back seat to the simple act of shopping.

Derby expects to turn profit

BY ANN SANNER Associated Press

RACERS CROSS the finish line in the masters race at the 75th All-American Soap Box Derby, in this July 21 file photo taken in Akron. Additional money also came from foundations and grants, sales of derby car kits and licensing agreements with cities hosting derby qualifying races. Another boost came from adding Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp. as the derby’s first national title sponsor in seven years. The derby, which celebrated its 75th anniversary this year, started in Dayton and moved to Akron one year later, with the downhill race of gravity-powered cars held annually except during World War II.

TO DO a provider of abortions, a procedure supporters of the bill oppose funding with public dollars. The bill has passed a House committee and could be brought to the full House for a vote. House Speaker William Batchelder says he’s yet to talk to his Republican members about the proposal, though he added he would be surprised if there weren’t enough votes to pass it out. Republican Senate President Tom Niehaus said his caucus is mulling the bill, as well as what action — if any — to take on another measure that would ban most abortions after the first detectable heartbeat. The so-called heartbeat bill cleared the House and has been stalled in the Senate for most of the year. The heartbeat bill’s sponsor, Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, says he’s optimistic that a compromise could get the measure moving again. But Wachtmann, a Republican from Napoleon, wouldn’t say what is contained in such a deal. Niehaus said he planned to discuss the bill with his members about whether the bill should be brought up. “I’ll give them a chance to go through the proposal, then I’ll meet with them one-on-one, then

Officials work to get exotics’ owners registered

From Page 1 I’ll make a decision,” he said. ————— ELECTION RULES: A working group of senators has been reviewing whether to update the state’s election law after the presidential election was marked by several legal challenges to Ohio’s rules. Proposed changes to early voting days and provisional ballot rules sparked partisan rancor in the Legislature this session. Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican, suggested the issue be set aside during the lame-duck session so leaders would have more time to find a bipartisan consensus. Niehaus hasn’t said whether his chamber would pass any changes in the final days, but he’s left the option open. Batchelder has told reporters that he would rather take on the topic in the next session. “Those are complex bills,” he said. “I think it’s something that we would want to hold hearings on — extensive hearings.” ————— SCHOOL RATINGS: A proposal pending in the House would overhaul the academic performance rating system for Ohio school districts. Currently, the state rates schools with such labels as “excellent with distinction” or “academic

emergency.” Under the phased-in plan, schools would instead receive an A through F grade based on state standards. Districts wouldn’t receive an overall grade for two years in new rating system. A House education committee has been revising and debating the bill. Batchelder has said the measure is among the chamber’s priorities for the lame-duck session. ————— ETHICS LAW Niehaus introduced a bill Wednesday to update the state’s ethics rules, which he says haven’t been revamped since the 1990s. The proposal was slated to get its first hearing next week. Niehaus has said he wants to modernize the law to make disclosure forms more transparent. For instance, he said it’s an onerous process to go back and make a change to a paper financial disclosure report, while correcting a campaign finance filing can happen with the click of a button. “Why don’t we do something similar with financial disclosure?” Niehaus recently told reporters. ————— Associated Press writer Julie Carr Smyth contributed to this report.

COLUMBUS (AP) — State officials continue to work with owners of exotic animals to help them fully register their creatures with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, even though the state deadline for them to submit information was several weeks ago. About 30 registrations covering roughly 200 animals were filed with the state before the Nov. 5 deadline, but they contained errors or omissions, according to the agriculture department. One of the biggest problems with the incomplete forms was that some owners had yet to implant their wild animals with a microchip containing information to help identify them if they got lost or escaped, said Erica Pitchford Hawkins, a spokeswoman for the agriculture department. Now the department and the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association are working to help the owners abide by the microchip requirement by connecting them to veterinarians who can perform the task.

“The ones who are making an effort to come into compliance, we’re trying to let them do that as much as possible,” Pitchford Hawkins said, adding that owners must keep a record of their correspondence with veterinarians. Under a new state law, owners who don’t register could face a first-degree misdemeanor charge for a first offense, and a fifth-degree felony for any subsequent offenses. But the state isn’t yet referring owners for prosecution if they have failed to register their animals. That’s part of an agreement officials have with four owners who are suing the state’s agriculture department and its director over the new law. The owners claim the new regulations threaten their First Amendment and property rights. A federal court hearing on the lawsuit is planned for mid-December. A list of registrations obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request show that at least 114 private owners have successfully registered animals with the state. That

figure doesn’t include zoos or research facilities that also submitted registrations. Ohio’s restrictions on exotic animals had been among the nation’s weakest. State lawmakers worked with a renewed sense of urgency to strengthen the law after an owner last fall released 50 creatures, including black bears and Bengal tigers, from an eastern Ohio farm in Zanesville before he committed suicide. Authorities killed most of the animals, fearing for the public’s safety. Under the new law, current owners who want to keep their animals must obtain the new state-issued permit by Jan. 1, 2014. They must pass background checks, pay fees, obtain liability insurance or surety bonds, and show inspectors that they can properly contain the animal and care for it. One of the factors of obtaining a state permit includes timely registration. If owners are denied permits or can’t meet the new requirements, the state can seize the animals.

AKRON (AP) — Organizers of the All-American Soap Box Derby in northeast Ohio say the youth racing organization is expected to have a profit of roughly $35,000 for the year that ended in September, once paperwork is finalized. President Joe Mazur told the Akron Beacon Journal the organization’s financial picture is looking better. Organizers have been working to rebuild the organization’s popularity and its financial footing since 2010, when its economic troubles led to a fundraising campaign that helped it clear $152,000. The derby lost $111,000 the following year as donations decreased. Mazur took over in mid-2011 and is aiming to expand the number of race cities from the existing 123 to more than 200 in five years. He’s also increased focus on education and expanded memorabilia sales opportunities. The derby lost corporate sponsorship and was sued in 2009 by a bank seeking payment on $580,000 in loans, but the city agreed to guarantee the loans. The derby turned its attention to paying the loans and finding ways to increase funding. The financial problems inspired actor and director Corbin Bernsen to make “25 Hill,” a film about a derby racer that premiered in Akron last year and generated $150,000 for the organization.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, Nov. 24, the 329th day of 2012. There are 37 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 24, 1987, the United States and the Soviet Union agreed on terms to scrap shorterand medium-range missiles. (The IntermediateRange Nuclear Forces Treaty was signed by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev the following month.) On this date: ■ In 1784, Zachary Taylor, the 12th president of the United States, was born in Orange County, Va. ■ In 1859, British naturalist Charles Darwin published “On the Origin of Species,” which explained his theory of evolution by means of natural selection. ■ In 1862, Confederate President Jefferson Davis appointed Gen. Joseph E. Johnston to command the Department of the West during the Civil War. ■ In 1922, Irish nationalist and author Robert Erskine Childers was executed in Dublin by Free State forces. ■ In 1939, British Overseas Airways Corp. (BOAC) was formally established. ■ In 1941, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Edwards v. California, unanimously struck down a California law prohibiting people from bringing impoverished non-residents into the state. ■ In 1950, the musical “Guys and Dolls,” based on the writings of Damon Runyon and featuring songs by Frank Loesser (LEH’-suhr), opened on Broadway. ■ In 1963, Jack Ruby shot and mortally wounded Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy, in a scene captured on live television. ■ In 1969, Apollo 12 splashed down safely in the Pacific. ■ In 1971, a hijacker calling himself “Dan Cooper” (but who became popularly known as “D.B. Cooper”) parachuted from a Northwest Orient Airlines 727 over the Pacific Northwest after receiving $200,000 dollars in ransom — his fate remains unknown.


Bad BBQ publicity HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A phone book company has settled a lawsuit over its placement of a Montana restaurant in the “Animal Carcass Removal” section of its yellow pages, a listing the restaurant owner says cost him customers and made him the butt of a Jay Leno joke. The terms of the Nov. 16 deal between Dex Media Inc. and Big Sky Beverage Inc., the parent company of Bar 3 Bar-B-Q, were not disclosed. A tentative agreement proposed in September said a deal would include a payment to the restaurant owner. Restaurant owner Hunter Lacey sued Dex after the listing appeared in the 2009 phone book and was reprinted in other print and online directories in 2010 and last year. It gained national notoriety after Leno featured it as a joke on the Tonight Show in January 2011. Lacey’s lawsuit claims a Dex salesman deliberately published the free listing under the “Animal Carcass Removal” section after he refused to buy an advertisement in the phone book. The salesman no longer works for the company.

Clashes break out in Egypt after president expands power BY MAGGIE MICHAEL Associated Press CAIRO (AP) — Supporters and opponents of President Mohammed Morsi clashed Friday in the worst violence since he took office, while he defended a decision to give himself near-absolute power to root out what he called “weevils eating away at the nation of Egypt.” The edicts by Morsi, which were issued Thursday, have turned months of growing polarization into an open battle between his Muslim Brotherhood and liberals who fear a new dictatorship. Some in the opposition, which has been divided and weakened, were now speaking of a sustained street campaign against the man who nearly five months ago became Egypt’s first freely elected president. The unrest also underscored the struggle over the direction of Egypt’s turbulent passage nearly two years after a popular uprising toppled Hosni Mubarak’s authoritarian regime. Liberals and secular Egyptians accuse the Brotherhood of monopolizing power, dominating the writing of a new constitution and failing to tackle the country’s chronic economic and security problems. “I don’t like, want or need to resort to exceptional measures, but I will if I see that my peo-

EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT Mohammed Morsi speaks to supporters outside the Presidential palace in Cairo, Egypt, Friday. Opponents and supporters of Mohammed Morsi clashed across Egypt on Friday, the day after the president granted himself sweeping new powers that critics fear can allow him to be a virtual dictator. ple, nation and the revolution of Egypt are in danger,” Morsi told thousands of his chanting supporters outside the presidential palace in Cairo. But even before he spoke, thousands from each camp demonstrated in major cities, and violence broke out in several places, leaving at least 100 wounded, according to security officials. Security forces pumped volleys of tear gas at thousands of pro-democracy protesters clashing with riot police on streets several blocks from Cairo’s Tahrir Square, birthplace of the Arab Spring, and

in front of the nearby parliament building. Young protesters set fire to tree branches to counter the gas, and a residential building and a police vehicle also were burned. Tens of thousands of activists massed in Tahrir itself, denouncing Morsi. In a throwback to last year’s 18-day antiuprising, they Mubarak chanted the iconic slogan first heard in Tunisia in late 2010: “The people want to overthrow the regime.” They also yelled “erhal, erhal,” — Arabic for “leave, leave.” Outside a mosque in the Mediterranean city of Alexan-

Veterans’ honor flights halted after money goes missing BY HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — As many as 100 World War II v e t e r a n s missed their chance to travel to Washington to see their war’s memorial after about $110,000 disappeared from a Kansas nonprofit that orMiller ganized free trips for them. Richard Foster, the president of the board for an organization that ran Central Prairie Honor Flights, fears some of the veterans will never see the National World War II Memorial. It wasn’t completed until 2004, and with more than 600 World War II veterans dying daily, there is urgency to the effort to help them see the memorial. Central Prairie Honor Flights was the largest trip organizer in Kansas and raised nearly $1.2 million for them between 2008 and 2012. Flights were halted this year, however, after more than $100,000 went missing from the group’s account. Its program director, LaVeta Miller, was charged in October with two counts of theft by deception. “With that kind of money, we could have completed the World

War II veterans or come close,” Foster said. “It really pulled the rug out from under us.” Before the flights stopped, nearly 800 veterans made the trip from Kansas to the nation’s capital on flights chartered by the Great Bend, Kan.-based group. It pooled donations from everything from 4-H groups to children’s lemonade stands to pay for the trips. But this spring, the group canceled two charter flights that would have transported as many as 220 more veterans. Another group called Kansas Honor Flight sprung up, but the three trips it hurriedly organized on commercial flights included less than half of the veterans who would have gone on the chartered flights. Miller began helping administer the Honor Flight program in April 2009 and was promoted to program manager in April 2011. In the spring, around the time the flights were canceled, Springfield, Ohio-based Honor Flight Network decided it no longer wanted the Great Bend group to help organize trips for the national network. It cited problems with reports being filed late and a veteran breaking a rib on a trip. In July, Central Prairie Resource Conservation & Development, which oversaw the Honor Flights as one of its community projects, closed its Great Bend office and fired Miller because it no longer had

the money to pay her $22,000per-year salary. An investigation ensued. “I had her back and thought it was a witch hunt, and then I started seeing the evidence,” Foster said. The evidence included invoices that were changed and direct deposits to Miller’s bank account, he said. Miller, who is free on bail, made her first court appearance Monday. Her attorney, Robert Anderson, refused to comment on the charges against her. She doesn’t have a listed number, and a message sent to her through Facebook was not returned. Barton County Attorney Douglas Matthews said he couldn’t comment about the investigation or a possible motive. But said if there is a guilty verdict in the case, his office will seek restitution. Many veterans remain skeptical of the charges, noting that that Miller didn’t have a luxurious lifestyle. She lived in a small, rented home and never seemed to have much cash, they said. During a recent bingo night at the American Legion hall in Great Bend, Miller mingled with veterans. “She is a nice woman, and nobody thinks a thing about her being here,” said Larry Buczinski, 65, of Great Bend, a retired Army staff sergeant who served in Vietnam. He said he suspects evidence was planted in Miller’s home to implicate her in the thefts.

dria, anti-Morsi crowds threw stones and firecrackers on Brotherhood backers who used prayer rugs to protect themselves, injuring at least 15. The protesters then stormed a nearby Brotherhood office. State TV reported that offices of the Brotherhood’s political arm were burned in the Suez Canal cities of Suez, Ismailia and Port Said, east of Cairo. In the southern city of Assiut, ultraconservative Islamists and former jihadists outnumbered liberal and leftists in rival demonstrations. The two sides exchanged insults and scuffled briefly. Morsi and the Brotherhood contend that supporters of the old regime are holding up progress toward democracy. They have focused on the judiciary, which many Egyptians see as too much under the sway of Mubarak-era judges and prosecutors and which has shaken up the political process several times with its rulings, including by dissolving the lower house of parliament, which the Brotherhood led. His edicts effectively shut down the judiciary’s ability to do so again. At the same time, the courts were the only civilian branch of government with a degree of independence: Morsi already holds not only executive power but also legislative authority, since there is no parliament.

Elephants move to Maine HOPE, Maine (AP) — Maine has its moose, lobsters and puffins. Add elephants to the list. Two retired circus elephants, 41-year-old Opal and 43-year-old Rosie, have been transplanted to a newly built elephant rehabilitation center in an unlikely spot, the countryside of Maine. Jim Laurita worked with Opal and Rosie decades ago when he was an elephant handler for a traveling circus. A veterinarian, Laurita now treats the Asian elephants for ailments and works to make their retirement comfortable in what could be described as an old folk’s home for elephants. He gives tours to school groups and has made it his mission to spread the word about the need to protect elephants from extinction. “These guys are the Grand Canyon of animals, and they’re worth preserving,” Laurita said on a recent day inside the barn he built for the animals. Elephants are the world’s largest land animals. Slightly smaller than their African counterparts, Asian elephants are endangered, with fewer than 50,000 living in the wild and 16,000 more in captivity, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Laurita, 54, and his brother, Tom, worked for Carson & Barnes Circus in the late 1970s and early ’80s, traveling across the Midwest. Laurita handled elephants, his brother was a ringmaster and they had a juggling act together.

House to consider GOP limited immigration bill BY JIM ABRAMS Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans still smarting from their poor showing among Hispanics in the presidential election are planning a vote next week on immigration legislation that would both expand visas for foreign science and technology students and make it easier for those with green cards to bring their immediate families to the U.S. Republican leaders made it clear after the election that the party was ready to get serious about overhauling the nation’s dysfunctional immigration system, a top priority for Hispanic communities. Taking up what is called the STEM Jobs Act during the

lame-duck session could be seen as a first step in that direction. The House voted on a STEM bill — standing for science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in September, but under a procedure requiring a two-thirds majority. It was defeated, with more than 80 percent of Democrats voting against it, because it offset the increase in visas for high-tech graduates by eliminating another visa program that is available for less-educated foreigners, many from Africa. Republicans are changing the formula this time by adding a provision long sought by some immigration advocates — expanding a program that allows the spouses and minor children of people

with permanent residence, or green card, to wait in the United States for their own green cards to be granted. There are some 80,000 of these family-based green cards allocated every year, but there are currently about 322,000 husbands, wives and children waiting in this category and on average people must wait more than two years to be reunited with their families. In that past that wait could be as long as six years. The House proposal would allow family members to come to the U.S. one year after they apply for their green cards, but they wouldn’t be able to work until they actually got the card. It applies to the families of green card holders who marry after getting their resi-

dency permits. Bruce Morrison, a former Democratic congressman from Connecticut who chaired the House immigration subcommittee and authored a 1990 immigration law, said the bill neither increases the number of green cards nor gives people green cards early. But people “get the most important benefit of being able to live legally in the United States with their spouses.” Morrison, an immigration policy lobbyist who advocates for groups such as American Families United, called the bill a stepping-stone to more comprehensive immigration reform. That Republicans initiated it “to me is a positive gesture that they want to do business on this subject,” he said.

Retro Holiday Slide Show coming to DAI DAYTON — Humorist and “Ambassador of Americana” Charles Phoenix will offer a dose of nostalgic holiday cheer when he brings his Retro Holiday Slide Show to The Dayton Art Institute on Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. The performance, sponsored by Square One Salon and Spa, closes the inaugural season of The Dayton Art Institute’s new Arts Night Out series. Phoenix is a performer, humorist, chef and author. Through his live shows, videos, media appearances and books, the self-proclaimed “retro daddy” explores America’s classic and kitschy pop cultural past and present, and predicts retro-inspired future trends. While growing up in Ontario, California, Phoenix became enamored with theme park environments, fashion fads, and used cars on his dad’s car lots. As a teen he began a thrift shopping spree that lasted 30 years. After moving to Los Angeles and enjoying careers as a fashion designer and classic car dealer, his life changed forever when he found a shoebox full of vintage Ko-

dachrome slides, marked “Trip Across the United States 1957,” in a thrift shop. Collecting vintage slides soon became an obsession and he’s been collecting ever since. His archive is called the “Slibrary” and employs a “Slibrarian.” Phoenix now performs retro slide shows across the country, featuring a wide variety of themes, from road trips and Southern California to his annual holiday celebrations. The Retro Holiday Slide Show is a live comedy performance that celebrates mid-century holiday life and style. With his enthusiasm and eye for the very best and most bizarre of his massive collection of Kodachrome slides, he supercharges the classic living room slide show into a hysterical celebration of American holiday life and style. His performances often include tributes to local landmarks, “mom and pop” business legends, and artisans and crafters. Phoenix plans to travel to Dayton early, in order to see the best retro sites in the Gem City and surrounding communities. The public is in-

vited to share their favorite retro suggestions, by either posting photos to the museum’s Facebook page, at, or emailing them to For more, visit his website at The show will be in the museum’s NCR Renaissance Auditorium. All seats are $30, with discounts available for groups of 10 or more and active military. Tickets may be purchased by calling (937) 2234ART (4278), at the museum’s Visitor Services Desk during regular museum hours, or online at In conjunction with the show, The Dayton Art Institute’s Museum Store will host a book launch event, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the General Motors Entrance Rotunda, for local author Molly D. Campbell’s new book, “Characters in Search of a Novel.” Campbell and local illustrator Randy Palmer will be on hand for a book signing, and there will be readings and raffles.

PRESERVATION Heloise: I Dear bought a shell curtain when I was at the Texas coast and hung it over the bathroom entrance (since my bathroom is decorated with fish). I loved it, but every time my husband would go through it, I was afraid he was going to break the shells. We were having a party, and I worried that with the traffic in and out of the bathroom, the shells would get broken. So, I pulled all the strands together and looped them around a large candle sconce by the door. This way, everyone could go through the door without a problem. Worked great, and no broken shells. — Kay in Louisiana HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Dear Heloise: A social-media friend of mine asked all her social-

Christmas in Village planned JACKSON CENTER — The Greater Jackson Center Area Growth Association and the village of Jackson Center will sponsor a Christmas in the Village celebration Dec. 2. Ceremonies will begin with the lighting of the Christmas tree at 5:30 p.m. Caroling will signal the arrival of Santa Claus at the same time. Festivities will be in the Jackson Center Firehouse from 6 to 8 p.m., including horse-drawn wagon rides, pictures

with Santa, hand bell choir performance, face painting, children’s crafts, a 50/50 drawing to benefit the We Care Fund and refreshments. Children’s story time will be from 7 to 7:15 p.m. Attendees are invited to donate canned food to support the Fish Pond food pantry. Also in Jackson Center, the village holds an annual holiday display contest. Residents can nominate friends and neighbors whose holiday

displays are worthy of awards. The first-place winner will receive all of his December electric bill paid by the village, up to $250. Second place receives half of the electric bill paid by the village up to $125, and third place receives 1/4 of his electric bill paid by the village up to $75. The village will accept nomination forms for the contest through Dec. 14. They are available at the village office and online a t

The Disney type Never-Never Land of summer simply isn’t permanent.” Teens in summer romances rarely know how to preserve a relationship when they face the challenges and pressure of home and school. When summer fades, teens simply are not able to devote enough time and energy to make the romance grow. Dr. Levin says that summer romances develop because free time and a lack of responsibility allow teens a perfect opportunity to spend many hours together and to become intensely acquainted in an ideal setting for romance. Once those carefree days of summer end, teens must shift into high gear — obeying school night curfews and coping with the pressures of getting good grades so they can attend their college of choice. Add to that, parttime jobs and afterschool activities and the long distance summer romance is nothing more than a nice dream.

Remodeling under way at Burger King Restaurant remains open during work BY TOM BARNETT Burger King of Sidney is undergoing a barewalls makeover of its popular restaurant at 2115 Michigan St. As contractors work, food service is still being offered from its drivethrough window. ‘We’re bringing a new 20-20 image to Burger King with complete remodeling of both our interior and exterior,” owner Paul Scordia, and his partner, Josh Lephart, said Tuesday. Troy resident Scordia also owns and operates

Burger King franchises in Troy (also being remodeled), Tipp City and Springfield. When completed, the restaurant will have new restrooms and a dining area that includes two dining areas with sets of four leather seats and coffee tables. Each area will have two televisions. Other project features will include new flooring, stone-wall decor in one area and bar seating in another interior area. The extensive project will not expand the restaurant’s current site’s footprint. Scordia also said an-

other new feature will be a new freestyle CocaCola dispenser offering 146 different flavors — “an event of the future — now at Burger King.” Customers will select beverages with a touch screen. J. R. Freiburger, an Indiana-based company, is Burger King’s contractor. Bernadette Slife, a 26year Burger King veteran, will continue to manage the local restaurant. Target date for a grand reopening is Dec. 15. The SDN Photo/Luke Gronneberg owners said Burger King For photo reprints, visit will be hiring in all MAJOR RENOVATIONS are under way at at Burger King in Sidney.

Paxit Med-Pass works is all the medication a patient needs comes in a ready-to-tear-open pack with a three-day supply,” Dennis said. “It reduces medical waste and the amount of medication out in the public. So if a patient leaves the nursing home, they don’t leave behind a 30-day supply of meds behind.”

Dennis said the medication is delivered by Remedi Senior Care employees and dispensed with pharmacists and technicians on staff. The delivery service includes 121 facilities in Ohio alone, within a three and a half hour travel zone, Dennis said. Remedi’s revolutionary med-pass system

Paxit is a fully automated robotic dispensing technology that can support long-term care residents throughout Ohio. The Troy location is the second of three new pharmacies Remedi has slated to open this year; the first was in Virginia and the next will be in Pennsylvania. According to a press release, Remedi’s Paxit Med-Pass Solution is the industry’s only fully automated medication dispensing system, delivering resident-specific 24-hour unit-dose medication with unsurpassed accuracy, reducing drug costs by 15 percent or more and in-

creasing med-pass efficiency by 30 percent or more. Paxit reduces inventory levels to just two days, eliminating the waste often associated with 30-day supply, and exceeds the requirement of the Affordable Care Act. “Senior care continues to grow in the region as the number of Ohioans age 85 and older is expected to reach 322,497 by 2030 — an 82 percent increase from 2000,” said Remedi SeniorCare Chairman and CEO Michael Bronfein in a press release.

Upper Valley Career Center presents program at conference COLUMBUS — Upper Valley Career Center shared one of its programs during the 14th annual Student Achievement Fair recently at the 2012 Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) Capital Conference and Trade Show. OSBA showcased 100 innovative programs at this year’s fair, held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus. The Pre-Engineering and Design Technologies program was selected to participate based upon the program’s creativity and positive impact on student achievement. Students and instructor

Deborah Luellen, of Sidney, presented “The Design Cycle Comes to Life in Battle,” demonstrating how they used the design cycle to research, design, build, test and eventually battle with their 15pound “xtreme bots.” The students shared documentation, drawings, research from their experience placing third at the National competition in the spring. Visitors to the OSBA Capital Conference and Trade Show were invited to observe students working with their cardboard demo ‘bots and the battle ring where mini battles took place all day. They also demonstrated

their classroom NAO ‘bot who was on hand to greet and provide demonstrations. Student participants from Upper Valley were Seth Clark, of Houston; and Kristina Frey, Oliver Walters, and Steven Jenkins all from Piqua. The Student Achievement Fair is sponsored by the OSBA Student Achievement Leadership Team, which is an integral part of OSBA’s focus on improving public education. Approximately 10,000 school board members, administrators, teachers, students, vendors and guests attended the four-day Capital Conference.

Sidney Daily News, Saturday, November 24, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel a squeeze play with your cash flow today. Just cope as best you can. Someone might be unhappy with his or her share of something. (Hopefully, it’s not you.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Today the Moon is in your sign opposing Venus and Saturn. This makes relations with partners and loved ones a bit tense and standoffish. It is what it is. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t be critical of co-workers today, and don’t overreact if others are critical of you. People in positions of authority are discouraging. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be gentle dealing with children today, and remember the advice of Goethe: “Criticism does much, but encouragement does more.” LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) People in authority will notice you today; furthermore, they will learn details about your private life. Keep this in mind if you are displeased about something. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Travel plans look discouraging today. Ditto for your hopes and expectations for further schooling. Fear not. Things look worse than they really are. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) There will be disappointment in discussions about shared property and inheritances today. Because this is a poor day to settle these matters, postpone this for another day. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Relations with loved ones might seem cold and withdrawn today. Many people feel this way today, so don’t take it personally. (It’s too easy to erect fences and hide behind them.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Don’t let a boss or someone in authority discourage you at work today. Don’t give up on a project. Some days the glass is half-empty, and this is one of them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Children might seem to be an extra burden today and indeed, this could be the case. Furthermore, romantic relationships are disappointing. This is just one of those days. Accept it, and let it be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might feel depressed at home today or within your family. A female relative, especially someone older, might be critical of you. This is just tension before the pending Full Moon. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It might be hard to keep your spirits up today. But you are not alone. Millions of people feel this way today! By midweek, your world will look different. YOU BORN TODAY You work hard for your success. One might even say you create it. You work well with others, but you also love your solitude. You have high standards for yourself and others, and are always very thorough in everything you do. You have strong ethics that you live by. In year ahead, your life will become more social, and relationships will pleasantly flourish.

However, you can purchase lead-testing swabs that can answer definitively whether a particular paint has lead in it. I would not recommend letting small children use old toys that aren’t proven lead-safe or that might have small parts that can come off. Safety standards are much higher now. DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND ROACH: I have mild diabetes and am taking metformin. In the spring, I planted a small vegetable garden with beans, peppers and tomatoes. I had a tremendous production.

Nov. 24, 1912 At the May meeting of the Sidney Commercial Club, a number of our enterprising business men agreed to pay the expenses of a boy from each township that raised the largest number of bushels of corn per acre for a trip to Washington, D.C. The Shelby County Fair Board agreed to pay the expenses for the boy who raised the largest number and the Grain Dealers Association for the one that finished second. The list of winners announced today includes: Lawrence Hussey, Salem Twp., 130 bu. 31 lbs., first; Foster Caven, Green Twp., 102, 4 lbs., second; Homer Russell, Harvey Hoewisher, Clay Caving, Lowell Morrow, D.J. Thompson, Jr., Joe Stockstill, Orley Blalock, Cliff Knoop and Noel Yinger were the other winners from the townships. ––––– The Sidney basketball team for the game Thursday evening will be composed of the following players: C. Berger, E. Berger, L. Goffena, Will Shea, Alva Wilmore, Harley Johnston and John Campbell.

I have written a few letters, but none was published. I hope this time I will be lucky. ANSWER: There are many benefits from growing and eating your own vegetables. They have more nutrients than those bought in the store, and they taste wonderful. Vegetables are very much healthier than almost anything we eat, and a healthy diet helps to keep your diabetes under control. Your beans also have a good deal of protein. Many home gardeners feel a sense of pride eating their own produce, too. I get 100-200 letters a week and can publish only 10 or 15. Please keep writing. Shorter questions of general interest are better than longer ones applicable to only a few.

Building was disclosed today when it was learned a new home is being built for the organization. The new address will be Fourth Avenue, just north of Michigan Street, where Roy Asbury is constructing a building to be occupied by the ASC and the related Soil Conservation Service. Asbury, operator of Roy’s Marathon and Service Station and the Asbury Trailer Court, said he hopes the one floor plan face brick structure will be ready within a few months in connection with this project. He said he is also building a new store and service station at the corner of Fourth and Michigan.

It was the latest legal action since Bruce was fired last week after nine seasons. ––––– Shelby County volunteers are being sought by a state agency to visit people in area nursing homes who do not have visitors and to help advocate for them if there is a problem. The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program, affiliated with the Ohio Ombudsman Office, serves Shelby, Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery and Preble counties. The purpose of the agency is to improve the quality of life for residents of long-term care facilities and protect their rights under the patient’s bill of rights, said Jenny Burns, program social worker.

My grandmother Van Buren DEAR WANTS TO and I don’t get along BE A MOM: Before sometimes, and I’m scared you and Todd rush into this, it she’ll have my boyfriend put in is important to consider how

you will take care of a baby. Babies are not just cute; they are also completely helpless and A LOT OF WORK. Some schools offer students a program in which boys and girls are given dolls that require 24-hour care. They are just like real babies in that they cry, wet, and must be “fed” and with a parent at all times. Students are assigned to care for their “baby” for a week or more, and often, by the end of the assignment period, the desire to have a baby disappears as the reality about the degree

of responsibility becomes obvious. Please look into the possibility of attending a class like this because it is important. If you become pregnant as a freshman, it will lessen your chances of graduating. You and Todd will need a diploma in order to support yourselves and a child. If loving a baby was all it takes, your mother would be caring for you instead of your grandmother. I cannot stress enough the importance of you and Todd completing your education before becoming parents. It will make you

better parents. You should also be prepared to stay together until your child is an adult. Isn’t that what you would have wanted if your father hadn’t died and your mother turned to drugs? I’m glad you wrote, that you’re smart and didn’t act on impulse. Your grandmother is doing her best to raise you, and she already has enough responsibility on her shoulders. Another child might be more than she can physically and emotionally handle.

Hunters prepare for gun season — COLUMBUS Ohio’s week-long deerseason begins gun statewide Monday, Nov. 26 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 2, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The season again includes an extra weekend of gun hunting Dec. 15-16. “Deer-gun season is a great Ohio tradition and an opportunity for hunters to spend time with friends and family in the outdoors,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. Deer can be hunted with a muzzleloader, handgun or shotgun from one half-hour before sunrise to sunset during the gun season. ODNR Division of anticipates Wildlife

80,000-85,000 deer will be checked and tagged during the week-long hunt. “Ohio has long managed our deer with the goal of producing both a high-quality herd balanced by a tolerable quantity of animals for all to enjoy,” said Scott Zody, chief of ODNR’s Division of Wildlife. “I greatly appreciate the awareness of both our resident and non-resident hunters recognizing quality deer management means harvesting does and not just bucks. As a result, Ohio is a top 10 whitetail hunting destination.” The white-tailed deer is Ohio’s most popular game animal, frequently pursued by generations of hunters. Ohio ranks eighth nationally in an-

hunting-related nual sales and 10th in the number of jobs associated with hunting-related industries. Hunting has an $859 million economic impact each year in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more. Hunters may take only one antlered deer, regardless of zone, hunting method or season. A deer permit is required in addition to a valid Ohio hunting license. Hunters must purchase an additional permit to hunt more than one deer. Ohio is divided into three deer hunting zones. One deer may be harvested in Zone A (six counties) and two deer in Zone B (44 counties). Three deer may be harvested in Zone C (38

counties). Those hunting in urban units and at Division of Wildlife-authorized controlled hunts will have a six-deer bag limit, and those deer do not count against the hunter's zone bag limit. Antlerless deer permits can be used for the entire season in urban deer units or Division of Wildlife authorized controlled hunts. Antlerless deer permits will not be sold after Nov. 25, and these permits are not valid after that date unless used in an urban deer unit or a Division of Wildlife authorized controlled hunt. Hunting licenses are no longer printed on weatherproof paper. Protect licenses and permits from the elements by carrying them in a pro-

tective pouch or wallet. Hunters are also encouraged to donate any extra venison to organizations assisting Ohioans in need. ODNR Division of Wildlife is collaborating with Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) to help pay for the processing of venison. donated Hunters who donate deer are not required to pay the processing cost as long as the deer are taken to a participating processor. To see which counties are involved in this program, go to More information can be found in the 2012-13 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations and at Hunters can share photos by clicking on the Photo Gallery tab online.

Lake Erie gets surplus trout COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife has joined forces with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) to implement a pilot project to continue the restoration of native lake trout populations in Lake Erie. Lake trout are listed as a species of concern in Ohio because the population was greatly reduced by sea lamprey predation, particularly in Lake Erie’s eastern basin. There has been very little lake trout natural reproduction documented in Lake Erie over the last three decades, despite extensive annual stocking by neighboring state agencies in the eastern basin. During the week of Nov. 5, approximately 120,000 surplus lake trout fingerlings were stocked in Ohio waters of Lake Erie.

Good fur-bearer populations expected COLUMBUS — Ohio’s annual furbearer hunting and trapping seasons began on Nov. 10 for certain species. Good furbearer populations are expected this year, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. Fox, raccoon, opossum, skunk and weasel hunting and trapping seasons are open through Jan. 31, 2013. Mink and muskrat trapping seasons are open through Feb. 28, 2013. However, raccoon, opossum, skunk, weasel, mink and muskrat trapping seasons will remain open through March 15, 2013, only in Erie, Ottawa and Sandusky counties as well as Lucas County east of the Maumee River. Coyote hunting and trapping has no closed season with an unrestricted bag limit. Special hunting regulations for coyotes apply during the statewide deer-gun season, Nov. 26-Dec. 2 and Dec. 15-16, and deer-muzzleloader season, Jan. 5-8, 2013. Beaver and river otter trapping seasons are open Dec. 26 through Feb. 28, 2013, and beaver trapping is open statewide. For the eighth year, 43 counties will be open for river otter trapping. River otters were reintroduced into Ohio from 1986-1993 and have increased their range in the state. River otters

were removed from Ohio’s Endangered Species List in 2002. Full details of open counties as well as checking and permit requirements can be found in the Ohio River Otter Trapping Regulations or at There will be no daily bag limits or restrictions on hours for hunting and trapping furbearers, with the exception of river otters. River otter bag limits are dependent on the county where it was trapped. A fur taker permit is required in addition to a valid Ohio hunting license to hunt or trap furbearing animals, except for coyotes, which may be hunted or trapped year-round without a fur taker permit. A special ODNR Division of Wildlife permit is required to trap beaver and river otter on state public hunting areas. River otters that are accidentally captured, either in excess of bag limits or in closed counties, must be released unharmed. River otters that cannot be released must be turned over to ODNR Division of Wildlife. Ohio is among the nation's leading producers of raw furs. Last year, 22,195 fur taker permits were sold in the state. The state currently has 65 licensed fur dealers. Additional hunting and trapping information is available in the 2012-2013 Ohio Hunting Regulations.

Harris pours in 49 Sidney rallies for 69-64 OT win over Russia RUSSIA — Sidney senior Konner Harris, who recently signed to play basketball at Chicago State next season, poured in a school-record 49 points to spearhead a Lady Jacket comeback that resulted in a 69-64 overtime victory over the Russia Lady Raiders in the season opener Friday in high school basketball. Harris poured in eight 3pointers and hit 13-for-14 from the free throw line in scoring 49 points, four more than the previous school record set by Tangela Wells. Sidney is now 1-0 and hosts Lehman tonight. Russia is 0-1 and is right back in action tonight at home against Mississinawa. Russia controlled much of the action and appeared on the verge several times of pulling away from the Lady Jackets. But they didn’t have an answer for Harris, who repeatedly rallied her team. Sidney was down 10-2 at the start of the game, but wouldn’t go away. However, Russia went from a 30-25 lead late in the second quarter to an 11-point lead at the half. “We came out undersized in matchups and that got us in a lot of foul trouble in the first quarter,” said Sidney coach Megan Mummey. “So we struggled offensively and had some turnovers. And the second quarter was the same. “I told the girls we had to keep our composure and run our plays,” she added. “Our goal was to pressure them full court in the second half and try to get some baskets off turnovers.” The Lady Raiders then pulled out to a 13-point lead with just a minute remaining in the third period, only to have Sidney pull within seven by the end of the quarter. Harris, who hit a three to end the third period, hit another to start the fourth to cut it to 48-44. Russia scored to make it 50-44, but Harris hit a two, a three and another two to give Sidney a 51-50 lead. Taylor Daniel appeared to rescue the Lady Raiders when she scored seven in a row to give the Lady Raiders a 59-53 lead. But again, Harris nailed a three to cut the lead to three, then got some big help from her teammates, namely freshman Sylvia Hudson and senior Monique Hanayik. Hudson hit a free throw, then after Russia missed, Harris hit two free throws to knot the game at 59-59 with :37 left. Then in overtime, Hanayik and Hudson scored on backto-back drives to the bucket to make it 63-59, and Lauren Elmore hit a free throw. When Aaliyah Wise hit a turnaround in the lane, the Sidney lead ballooned to 66-59. Russia battled back, but Harris iced it with :05 left with two more free throws. Harris had six of her threes and 33 of her points in the third and fourth quarters. “Konner kept us in the game when no one else was looking to be an offensive threat,” Mummey said. “She stepped up and showed true talent and leadership. And I thought Laurem Elmore played well. She was everywhere, rebounding, getting steals and handling the ball against good pressure from Russia.” Hudson finished with seven points for Sidney, and they all came in the final period and the overtime. For the Lady Raiders, Kylie Wilson had 22 points and Daniel added 10, seven of those in the fourth quarter. NOTE: Sidney’s varsity

Lehman wins over Riverside Lehman led by just a point after three periods, but pulled away late in the final period to post a 44-32 win and give new head coach Kim Miller a victory in her debut Friday night in high school girls basketball action. “The girls were ecstatic,” said Miller after the game. “For such a small team, it was a great precedent for them. They did a great job of supporting each other and playing together.” The Lady Cavs led 11-9 after a quarter and neither team could put together a run. It was still close down the stretch but the Lady Cavs pulled away late by hitting their free throws. “We only hit 49 percent from the line for the game, but we hit them when we had to late,” said Miller. “I thought our defense was the key. And hitting the free throws at the end.” Ava Schmitz led Lehman with 16 points, eight of those coming at the line in 14 at-

Freshman QB leads Trojans against ND LOS ANGELES (AP) — Not many young would quarterbacks even have the audacity to imagine making their first career starts under the circumstances surrounding Max Wittek at the Coliseum on Saturday night. The freshman is replacing Matt Barkley, an injured senior who has claimed most of the career passing records at Southern California. He’s facing Notre Dame (11-0), a storied football power with a No. 1 ranking and the nation’s most feared defense. The Irish need just one more win to book a spot in the national title game, and the struggling Trojans (7-4) have lost three of four. Yet Wittek also has arguably the best receiving duo in the nation catching his passes and a sold-out stadium firmly at his back. If the enormity of this occasion is scaring Wittek, the confident 19year-old with a bigger arm than Barkley hasn’t shown it a bit. “You really can’t ask for a better opportunity to show what you’ve got,” Wittek said. “I just want to get that first snap, maybe that first hit, out of the way, and I’ll be ready to go.” Although USC has dominated the past decade in this delicious intersectional rivalry, winning nine of 10 and missing a clean sweep by one dropped touchdown pass two years ago, Wittek and the Trojans realize most of the pressure is on the other sideline this time. The Irish are just one win away from completing a remarkable run to the BCS title game in coach Brian Kelly’s third season. With so many pressure-packed wins already behind them this season, the Irish will hit the field in downtown Los Angeles simply trying not to get caught up in the matchup’s history — or the history they’ll make with a victory.

“You think about it,” Notre Dame safety Zeke Motta said. “In the back of your mind, it’s there that if you win this game, you’re going to play in the national What championship. more motivation do you need? But I think we want to treat it like any other game. Obviously it’s a rivalry game, so we’re going to be playing fierce and tough. We’re just focused on who we’re playing against and sticking it to them.” Notre Dame has done its part to make the schools’ 84th meeting appropriately memorable. The Irish headed to the Coliseum with the No. 1 ranking for the sixth time in the schools’ shared history, and they’re unbeaten when facing USC for the first time since 1993. USC is headed to a lower-tier bowl game, but could halt its lateseason slide from the preseason No. 1 ranking by crushing the Irish’s title dreams. USC has stumbled after a 6-1 start to a season of enormous expectations, losing to Arizona, Oregon and UCLA in the previous four weeks. “This is a game where we can get our respect back and get a good feeling about ourselves,” USC safety T.J. McDonald said. Both teams are made up of teenagers and young adults who can’t possibly have the same connection to this rivalry as thousands of alumni, former players or football fans who simply enjoy the college sport’s best traditions. The USC coaching staff attempted to remedy some of those educational gaps this week, with coach Lane Kiffin and defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron speaking up in team meetings about the series’ meaning and lore. Kiffin also played Notre Dame’s fight song during USC’s practices this week, hoping to remind the Trojans of their 31-17 upset win in South Bend last year.
