TROY — City of Troy’s service and safety director Patrick Titterington said he has met with the state of Ohio Liquor board and downtown business liquor permit holders about rules and regulations concerning the “Gentlemen of the Road” music festival beginning on Aug. 30. At Monday’s city council meeting, Titterington said the meetings “went very well.” Titterington also said representatives from Jam Productions attended the meetings with the Ohio Liquor Control board members. Titterington said “very good information was passed.” Titterington also said a meeting for downtown residents and residents outside of the downtown area is set for 6 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Troy High School audi-

torium. Titterington said Troy Main Street has notified residents via letter about the meeting. Troy resident Lester Conard asked Titterington about the recent announcement of more tickets being released to the public for the concert. Titterington confirmed that more tickets will be sold for the concert, but did not have a definite number. Titterington said “up to 30,000 maybe sold total” or approximately 5,000 more than the original 25,000 tickets which were initially released in February. Conard also asked how many people were planning on camping in the eight areas in the concert perimeter. Titterington estimated about 2.5 people per camp site would be at the camp sites throughout the downtown allotted areas. Titterington estimated 10,000 festival ticket holders were to camp in the areas designated in the downtown area. The estimate does not count those who are camping out-

side of the downtown areas in places such as the Miami County Fairgrounds. Conard also asked why there was “such trouble in our area” getting volunteers to help with the concert. Titterington said all volunteer coordination was being handled by the Troy Main Street organization. City council approved to release two mortgage liens as the only items of business on its agenda. Wade and Susan Westfall secured a loan for $30,900 in 2003 to improve the property at 125-127 S. Market St. The has been repaid in full. Steven and Melanie Smith (of The Caroline) secured a loan for $75,000 in 2007 to finance restaurant start-up expenses and equipment. A second loan for $40,000 in 2009 was secured for additional equipment and working capital. Both loans have been repaid in full.

MIAMI COUNTY — Lonnie Saunders doesn’t mind taking a page from professional wrestling’s past. In fact , Dynamic Championship Wrestling’s head honcho relishes in it. “We love performing at fairs,” Saunders said. “A lot of people don’t realize it, but professional wrestling at fairs and carnivals is an important part of wrestling history. We love being a part of that history. We love coming out and interacting with the fans. Sometimes, the fans at our shows are just as big a part of the show as the wrestlers themselves. We like to put on a family show that everyone from ages eight to 80 can enjoy.” Dynamic Championship wrestling will return to the Miami

TROY — Mumford & Sons fans that haven’t secured tickets for the upcoming Gentlemen of the Road Stopover — set for Aug. 30-31 — are in luck. Jam Productions announced Monday that a new block of tickets for the previously sold-out concert have become available and will go on sale this Friday, Aug. 9, at 10 a.m., available online at www.Gentlemenoftheroad. com. Several thousand tickets will be available, said Karin Manovich, executive director of Troy Main Street. “They held back a few tickets from the initial amount and did their final calculations to offer these,” Manovich said. “There won’t be any more after this.” The tickets are priced at $109 with no additional service fees or hidden charges. Each ticket will include a commemorative “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” Passport. Campsites are incorporated into each Stopover site, and camping has become an essential part of the Stopover experience and is strongly encouraged. Threenight camping passes begin at $40 per person and can be purchased along with tickets at She said this latest development is a great chance for hopeful fans to secure tickets at the normal price. Manovich said she has seen tickets for resale on Craigslist for as high as $500. She said buying tickets from other sources also

If the fans were able to defeat the wrestlers, they would receive a cash prize. The results were not predetermined and the wrestlers would use real wrestling skills to outmuscle and outwrestle their opponents. While DCW will be presenting a show based more on entertainment and less on actual competition — there won’t be an fan challenges Saturday — Saunders, who also competes at “Tommy Blaze,” said the show will be no less entertaining for fans. “We’ve been doing this at the Miami County Fair for a few years and we always enjoy it,” Saunders said. “It’s something we look forward to each and every year. We love introducing a new generation of fans to our sport.” Saunders said this year’s card will feature seven matches, with a main event of DCW heavyweight champion Mac McPhat vs. “Big” Jim Hutchinson. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Saunders said. “We hope to see everyone out there.”

Challenges face Bezos as he buys Washington Post LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jeff Bezos turned selling books online into a multibillion-dollar business that has changed retailing forever. Many are now anxious to see if Bezos can do the same for the media industry, after the founder announced he is buying The Washington Post and other newspapers for $250 million. Monday’s news of the sale to the 49-year-old pioneer of Internet commerce came as a shock to observers, many of whom thought the Graham family would never sell. It also sparked hope among the ranks of reporters beset by seemingly endless cutbacks. Among his champions are the members of the family selling the paper, including publisher Katharine Weymouth, who promised to stay on as publisher.

As some journalists shed tears, others expressed optimism. “Jeff Bezos seems to me exactly the kind of inventive and innovative choice needed to bring about a recommitment to great journalism,” said Carl Bernstein, whose co-reporting of the Watergate scandal in the early 1970s cemented the newspaper’s identity as a political watchdog. But The Post, like most newspapers, has been losing readers and advertisers to the Internet while watching its value plummet. The paper has cut its newsroom staff repeatedly in recent years and closed several bureaus. Many see Bezos, whose fortune was valued at $25 billion by Forbes magazine, as being rich enough to sustain the losses the newspaper will likely face over the next few years.

Bezos is buying the newspaper as an individual. Inc. is not involved. Bezos said to Post employees in a letter distributed to the media that he’d be keeping his “day job” as Amazon CEO and a life in “the other Washington” where Amazon’s headquarters are based in Seattle. But he made clear there would be changes, if unforeseen ones, coming. “The Internet is transforming almost every element of the news business: shortening news cycles, eroding longreliable revenue sources, and enabling new kinds of competition, some of which bear little or no news-gathering costs,” Bezos wrote. “There is no map, and charting a path ahead will not be easy. We will need to invent, which means we will need to experiment.”

Manovich said with the campgrounds opening at noon Thursday, they expect campers to begin trickling in throughout the day. To accommodate them, Manovich said downtown Troy activities will begin at 4 p.m. with at least two stages featuring local and regional bands on tap. She said the definitive line-up is not yet set. The downtown entry fee for Thursday is $5 per person for a wristband. The Friday night line-up will feature Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Phosphorescent, Willy Mason and Half Moon Run. The Grammy-winning Mumford & Sons will headline the all-day Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists including Old Crow Medicine Show, The Vaccines, Justin Townes Earle, Rubblebucket, Those Darlins,


Bear’s Den and Yacht Club DJs. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people, will happen in and around town throughout the rest of the weekend, according to organizers. The downtown venue will feature several stages offering music throughout the weekend, and the fee for each day will again be $5. The main stage in downtown will be on South Market Street, just north of Franklin Street, facing the fountain, Manovich said. Food and beverage vendors will be located in a circle around the fountain. Manovich said planning for the weekend-long event has accelerated during the last few weeks and most plans now are in place. “We will be staffing over 10,000 volunteer man hours,” Manovich said. She said the downtown businesses also are beginning their preparations for welcoming Mumford & Sons and all their fans. She said a decorating con-

years ago. The life-saving blood for her transfusion had to be flown to her hospital bedside from San Francisco. “Many years ago, I had to have a transfusion and they had to fly it down,” Phillips said. “I’ve been giving blood for the last 40 years — I do it every chance I can.” The Phillips’ retired to the city of Troy from California and enjoy volunteering at events such as the annual National Night Out. Phillips said giving blood is gratifying

and knows her unique blood type is needed. “Somebody needs it somewhere,” she said. The Community Blood Center calls registered donors to encourage them to make appointments for the blood drive. Donating blood generally takes 40 minutes from start to finish. “One of the things they do now is they call you afterwards and tell you how many people benefited from your blood donation — that is kind of cool,” Phillips said. “They always need this type for sure. I know when I needed it, they didn’t have it — my type is not that common.” Troy resident Laura Ross said she gives blood “whenever I can” and had scheduled her donation after the Community Blood Center contacted her about its stop with National Night Out on Tuesday. “It’s just a good thing to do,” Ross said. Ross said she has donated approximately 10 times

in her lifetime.”It’s just one way to help out in a lot of situations.” Community Blood Center’s mobile coordinator DeJuan Howard said his favorite part of his job is “meeting good people.” “I like making them feel good after their experience,” Howard said. Howard jokingly said “I do it all,” including drawing blood, registration and driving the blood drive bus to locations all over the region. Community Blood Center’s account representative Jon Thalman said the blood drive bus has been part of Miami County’s National Night Out for three years. “We have had 15 people register to come out and donate,” Thalman said. “We hope to get a lot of walk-ups and do as well today as we have done the last few times.” Thalman said the summer of 2013 has been “steady” for the blood center. Typically donations drop due

to summer vacations and local high schools being out of session, he said. Thalman said high school students are “extremely supportive” during blood drives. High school blood drives is how 20 yearold Victoria Merrell started donating blood. The Urbana University student started donated blood when she was 16 years-old. “It’s not hard and it’s needed,” Merrell said. “You save three lives every time you do it.” Merrell said she continues to give blood because of the satisfaction it brings to the person who will receive it. “You just know you can help other people,” she said. “And I get to see awesome people here doing the same thing.” For more information about donating blood, visit

Having just 34 miles of track the D C & P Traction Company carried everything from passengers to livestock in order to promote its services. In June of 1902 the, D C & P made its first run from Fairview Park in Dayton to West Milton. Trostel points out that the traction company treated every cross road as a stop and made one and two hour return trips so that people could enjoy shopping in

Dayton and scenery along the railway. Once Overlook Park in West Milton was completed, up to 8,000 people per weekend would visit via the D C & P. Overlook Park offered folks the opportunity to swim, go boating, listen to various bands and kick up their heels in the dance hall. The traction line also took passengers into Ludlow Falls, Pleasant Hill, Covington and Piqua with each town providing their own attractions. ​Trostel has written many books about the area railroads and important local historical events. . The library is located at 560 S. Main St., West Milton. For more information, call (937) 6985515, visit or find the library on Facebook.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Akron Beacon Journal The death of the DREAM Act in Congress last year deprived children of undocumented parents in Ohio of a benefit that is the cornerstone of upward mobility: access to education. Most of the state’s two- and four-year colleges and universities regarded undocumented young immigrants as out-of-state or international students, charging more than double the rate for in-state students. Fortunately, the Ohio Board of Regents has decided that state schools now must charge in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants with temporary legal status. Under a federal program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, undocumented immigrants who came into the United States when under age 16 can receive two years of legal status, subject to renewal, allowing them to work and get a driver’s license. The regents’ decision will allow in-state tuition for immigrants who qualify under the federal program, provided they meet all other residency requirement under Ohio law. Thousands in the state participate in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but it is not yet clear how many will qualify for in-state tuition. Ohio is not a pioneer in the policy. It is following the lead of about a dozen other states that have wisely recognized the contributions young immigrants can make to society if they can realize their full potential. Sadly, more must be done to smooth the way to higher education: In-state tuition in Ohio is high, and, advocates say, many immigrants cannot get federal financial aid. The Ironton Tribune By virtually anyone’s definition, Ariel Castro is a monster. The only person who would dispute that is the man himself, showing not only how demented he is but also offering yet another example of how our society enables those who blame others for their own mistakes. Castro is the Cleveland man who kidnapped then raped and tortured three women for more than a decade before being caught earlier this year. The man is clearly delusional and refused to take responsibility for his actions. He blamed pornography. He blamed his late ex-wife. He blamed the FBI for not catching him sooner. He is clearly mentally ill and has no grasp of reality. He argued with the judge over whether or not rape was a violent crime and contended that he and the women had many happy memories together. Although Castro is clearly an extreme example, he is just the latest example of people in our society blaming everyone but themselves for their transgressions. The blame game only hurts our people, our communities and our nation. The (Youngstown) Vindicator The House of Representatives left Washington, D.C., without sending a viable farm bill to the Senate, which means House Speaker John Boehner is going to have a lot of work to do when Congress returns in September. A new five-year farm bill is needed before the present one expires Sept. 30 unless Congress is willing to abandon a program that provides support to large and small farm operations and food stamps for about 47 million Americans. Financing food stamps is the sticking point. The Senate has passed a comprehensive farm bill, but House Republicans removed food stamps from their version, the first time that has been done in more than 40 years. … The Senate farm bill already cuts about $5 billion from the food-stamp program, but House leaders are looking to keep the food stamps separate from the rest of the bill and to cut about $20 billion from the program. This is not the time to be slashing food subsidies, certainly not by 25 percent, which would cause a hardship on millions of people, many of them children. The (Findlay) Courier Public schools across Ohio will be starting classes soon, but an effort is underway to disrupt the new school year. A group of conservative lawmakers have introduced a bill to block implementation of new curriculum guidelines known as the Common Core standards. The standards outline what students in kindergarten through 12th grade should know in math and English language arts. If the legislative effort is successful, and we hope it’s not, Ohio would become the third state to derail the new educational requirements just as some provisions are about to begin. … Even if more support is gained, Gov. John Kasich, a supporter of Common Core standards, has already said he would not sign such a bill. The resistance among conservative lawmakers appears to be more about picking another fight with President Obama than providing the best possible education for students. Any change to education comes without concerns and questions, and it’s too soon to know whether the Common Core model will provide better results. But the answer is not to stop reform in Ohio at the 11th hour. Doing so will only put our students even further behind those elsewhere in the country and the rest of the world.

Reforming America’s prison-industrial complex Prison is one of the most important institutions in American life. About a quarter of all the world’s prisoners are behind bars in the United States, a total of roughly 2 million people. It costs about $60 billion a year to imprison them. This vast prison-industrial complex has succeeded in reducing crime but is a blunt instrument. Prison stays often constitute a graduate seminar in crime, and at the very least, the system does a poor job preparing prisoners to return to the real world. Since 95 percent of prisoners will eventually be released, this is not a minor problem. Prison tends to be harsh in smallminded ways (taking away weights and various TV programs) and lax in the important things. Needless to say, sexual violence and de facto rule by gangs — all too common — shouldn’t be tolerated in a civilized country. And when it comes to inculcating habits that might make prisoners decent citizens, prison should be more prescriptive, rather than less. In an essay in the journal National Affairs, Eli Lehrer sets out an agenda for reform geared toward rehabilitation, and the con-

servative group Right on Crime families. advocates a similar program. Most Prison should align itself with fundamentally, prisoners should be other norms.

It has sent fewer people to prison, while crime has continued to decline in the state. It has funded more slots for treatment for substance abuse and mental illness, and increased the use of drug courts, creating alternatives to prison. It has strengthened supervision of probationers and parolees, by reducing caseloads for officers and fashioning a system of swift and certain sanctions for violations. We have proved in the past several decades that we can lock a lot of people up. The challenge now is if we can do it more humanely and intelligently and, ultimately, create less work for the prison-industrial complex.

TROY — While the unseasonable weather has put a damper on the Troy Aquatic Park’s attendance this year, it has been a banner season for the Miami Shores Golf Course. During a regular session of the city of Troy’s park board, Miami Shores pro Ken Green reported an increase in daily fees for golfers this season on Wednesday. Green reported several well-attended golf outings in the last several weeks with a few more scheduled for the remainder of the golf season. “The weather has been fantastic for us,” Green reported to the board. “People were just clamoring to get out.” Green projected a 40 to 50 percent increase in daily course fees due to the perfect golfing conditions. “It’s been good for us, bad for them,” Green noted to Ken Siler, the city’s recreation department director. Siler noted the cool weather has hit the T.A.P.’s attendance, which he projects maybe under $25,000 in revenue this pool season. “We try to break even,” Siler said. Siler said a full report and revenue statistics have not been finalized thus far. “It’s been a less than stellar season with the weather,”Siler said. Siler noted the $25,000 negative balance is a rough estimate compared to 2012’s season. Board president Al Kappers suggested all three directors, including park superintendent Jeremy Drake, make a contingency plan if any one should take a leave of absence.

Wilson did submit a formal request to purchase property in conjunction of Heywood Park. Wilson said the land would a 72-foot access and would use for landscaping. Wilson had the property surveyed for the park board and submitted the plan to county officials. Drake said as long as the park department would have access, the acquisition would reduce labor costs to maintain. “I don’t see a problem with it,” Drake said. Kappers commented that Wilson’s proposal would have to undergo the “wheels of government” to move through council and advertisement for the sale. Kappers said as long as there were no improvements such as buildings on the property, he would approve the measure. Board member Stan Phillips also supported the motion with the contingencies and a letter to be sent to all surrounding residents.

Kappers also said passwords and management information should be submitted to himself and city hall’s assistant service and safety director Tom Funderburg in the near future. Drake formerly submitted the park’s five-year plan. Drake also discussed a pilot program for park recycling program. The city parks currently do not have any recycling containers within its parks. “We don’t recycle currently in our parks,” Drake said. Drake said an intern is helping research the program with refuse companies to help reduce waste costs. The board reported several unsuccessful attempts for bids for surplus park land. The date for the sale has been extended. “There were no bids on real estate,” Kappers said. Troy resident Bill

U.S. military evacuates embassy personnel from Yemen WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military evacuated non-essential U.S. government personnel from Yemen on Tuesday due to the high risk of attack by al-Qaida that has triggered temporary shutdowns of 19 American diplomatic posts across the Middle East and Africa. The State Department said in a travel warning that it ordered the evacuation “due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks” and said U.S. citizens in Yemen should leave immediately because of an “extremely high” security threat level. “As staff levels at the Embassy are restricted, our ability to assist U.S. citizens in an emergency and provide routine consular services remains limited and may be further constrained by the fluid security situation,” the travel warning said. The U.S. Embassy is located in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen. Yemeni security officials said a suspected U.S. drone strike at about 2 a.m. local time Tuesday killed four alleged al-Qaida members in a volatile eastern province of the country. The drone fired a missile at a car carrying the four men, setting it on fire and killing all of them, the officials said. It wasn’t immediately clear if the decision to evacuate the embassy, made earlier, was connected to the drone strike. The Yemeni officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not allowed to talk to the media, said they believe one of the dead is Saleh Jouti, a senior al-Qaida member. It’s the fourth drone attack in the past two weeks to hit a car believed to be carrying alQaida members. Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said the U.S. Air Force transported State

current shutdown of embassies in the Middle East and Africa was instigated by an intercepted secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and Nasser al-Wahishi, the leader of the Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, about plans for a major terror attack. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The State Department on Sunday closed a total of 19 diplomatic posts until next Saturday. They include posts in Bangladesh and across North Africa and the Middle East as well as East Africa, including Madagascar, Burundi, Rwanda and Mauritius. Jen Psaki, spokeswoman for the State Department, said in a separate statement issued early Tuesday that the department issued the order for Yemen because of concern about a “threat stream indicating the potential for terrorist attacks against U.S. persons or facilities overseas, especially emanating from the Arabian Peninsula.” The statement said U.S. citizens who choose to stay in Yemen despite the travel warning should limit nonessential travel within the country and make their own contingency emergency plans. AQAP, gathered in small cells scattered across Yemen’s vast under-governed regions, has proven to be a tenacious enemy. Officials say al-Zawahri, who took over for Osama bin Laden and works from Pakistan, has reached out to the Yemeni branch, cementing their ties and further signaling the AQAP is once again looking to target U.S. and Western interests after a sustained period of more local and regional focus.

The State Department on Tuesday ordered non-essential personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Yemen to leave the country. The department said in a travel warning that it had ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Yemen “due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks” and said U.S. citizens in Yemen should leave immediately because of an “extremely high” security threat level.

Department personnel out of Sanaa early Tuesday. “The U.S. Department of Defense continues to have personnel on the ground in Yemen to support the U.S. State Department and monitor the security situation,” Little added. A senior defense official said Tuesday that between 50 and 100 diplomatic personnel were flown out of Sanaa in a C-17 military transport as dawn broke and were taken to Ramstein Air Base in Germany. The official was not authorized to discuss the information publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity. The official said dozens of military troops


remain in the country, including those who were doing security at the embassy and others conducting training with Yemeni troops. Britain’s Foreign Office also announced that it had evacuated all staff from its embassy in Yemen due to security concerns. The office said the British embassy staff were “temporarily withdrawn to the U.K.” on Tuesday, but declined further comment. Previously, the U.K. had said the embassy would be closed until the end of the Muslim festival of Eid later this week. A U.S. intelligence official and a Mideast diplomat told The Associated Press that the

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, Aug. 7, the 219th day of 2013. There are 146 days left in the year. On this date: In 1882, the famous feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into full-scale violence. In 1927, the already opened Peace Bridge connecting Buffalo, N.Y., and Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, was officially dedicated. In 1942, U.S. and other allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. (Japanese forces abandoned the island the following February.) In 1947, the balsa wood raft Kon-Tiki, which had carried a sixman crew 4,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean, crashed into a reef in a Polynesian archipelago; all six crew members reached land safely. In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite, which sent back images of Earth. In 1963, first lady Jacqueline Kennedy gave birth to a boy, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who died two days later of respiratory distress syndrome. In 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson broad powers in dealing with reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. forces. In 1971, the Apollo 15 moon mission ended successfully as its command module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean. In 1989, a plane carrying U.S. Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 others disappeared over Ethiopia. (The wreckage of the plane was found six days later; there were no survivors.) In 1993, the public got its first glimpse inside Buckingham Palace as people were given the opportunity to tour the London home of Queen Elizabeth II. (Proceeds were earmarked to help repair fire damage at Windsor Castle.) In 1998, terrorist bombs at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 224 people, including 12 Americans. In 2007, San Francisco's Barry Bonds hit home run No. 756 to break Hank Aaron's storied record with one out in the fifth inning of a game against the Washington Nationals, who won, 8-6. Today's Birthdays: Writer-producer Stan Freberg is 87. Magician, author and lecturer James Randi is 85. Former MLB pitcher Don Larsen is 84. Actress Verna Bloom is 74.

Hasan: Evidence will show ‘I am the shooter’

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood targeted fellow soldiers in a meticulously planned attack that included stockpiling bullets and researching Taliban leaders calling for jihad, a military prosecutor said Tuesday during the opening day of the long-awaited trial. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan spent time at a shooting range and purchased a pistol and extender kit to hold more ammunition before carrying out his plan to “kill as many soldiers as he could” while avoiding civilians, Col. Steve Henricks told jurors. The shooting, which killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others on the sprawling Texas military base, remains the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation. Henricks alleged that Hasan didn’t want to deploy after getting his orders about three weeks before the shootings, and that “he came to believe he had a jihad duty to murder to his fellow soldiers.” The American-born Muslim later told a doctor at the base that, “‘They’ve got another thing coming if they think they are going to deploy me,’” Henricks said. But when it came time for him to speak, the 42-year-old Hasan — who is acting as his own attorney — countered prosecutors’ detailed portrait of the attack with a simple statement: “The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter.” In writings and in previous court statements, Hasan indicated he wanted to argue that he carried out the shooting to defend the Taliban from American attacks — but the judge denied that strategy. During his 2-minute opening statement Tuesday, he touched on his religion, saying: “We are imperfect Muslims trying to establish the perfect religion. … I apologize for any mistakes I made in this endeavor.” His statements highlighted the complexity of the military’s case. Hasan wanted to plead guilty to several counts of murder and attempted murder, but military rules prevent guilty pleas in death-penalty cases. Prosecutors are pursuing a death sentence, which are often overturned in military courts. The trial is playing out amid high security at Fort Hood, where armed guards stood in doorways and 15-foot stacks of shock-absorbing barriers obscured the view of the courthouse. Jurors were told to prepare for a trial that could take months, and Hasan, who is in a wheelchair, needs regular breaks because he was paralyzed after being shot by officers responding to the shooting.

U.S. senators urge release of Egypt’s Islamists But Egypt’s interim presidency denounced “foreign pressure” in a sign of its growing impatience with international mediations. Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham spoke after meeting with top military and civilian leaders in Cairo as

part of a flurry of international efforts to resolve a standoff between the government and supporters of the ousted president, Mohammed Morsi. McCain said “we urge the release of political prisoners,” referring to Brotherhood members who were detained

after the military ousted Morsi, an Islamist, a month ago. “In democracy, you sit down and talk to each other,” Graham said, adding, “it is impossible to talk to somebody who is in jail.” Graham warned that U.S.Egyptian relations might otherwise be harmed. “Some in Congress want to sever the relationship. Some want to suspend the aid,” he said. “We have to be honest to where the relationship

stands. … We can’t support Egypt that is not moving to democracy.” Egypt’s new government has held firm to a political road map announced July 3, when the military ousted Morsi following mass protests calling on him to step down. U.S. and other international officials have urged the inclusion of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood in the political process going forward. Top Egyptian officials said

CAIRO (AP) — Two U.S. senators urged Egypt’s military-backed government to release detained members of the Muslim Brotherhood before starting negotiations with the group, warning of worsening relations “if Egypt is not moving to democracy.”


reconciliation is a priority but only after the Brotherhood renounces violence. They cite sectarian violence in southern Egypt, cases of torture of anti-Morsi protesters and the blocking of main roads. Ahmed el-Musalamani, a spokesman for interim president Adly Mansour, told reporters that “foreign pressure has exceeded international standards.” He said Egypt will protect “the revolution” — referring to June 30, the day hundreds of thousands of Egyptians revolted against Morsi’s rule. El-Musalamani didn’t elaborate. However, his comments came as the country’s powerful military chief Gen. Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi and Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei held separate meetings with Graham and McCain, who arrived in Cairo on Monday at President Barack Obama’s request to press senior Egyptians for a quick return to civilian rule. Egypt’s official news agency MENA reported that the two Republican senators and el-Sissi discussed efforts to end “the state of political polarization and stop the violence” while moving forward with Egypt’s fast-track road map. The plans calls for amending the constitution and holding new elections by early next year “without discrimination or isolation.”

In a good place Troy girls hoping for run at GWOC North title

By Colin Foster

Associate Sports Editor

First-year Troy girls golf coach Tom Mercer is happy with what he saw from his team during tryouts. “You know, for this being my first year as coach, I’ve been impressed with all the girls,” Mercer said. “For some of them, they are coming out for the first time, and I’ve been really impressed with how hard they have worked. “It’s a complicated game, but I like their work ethic. I’ve been very pleased.” He also likes the experience the Trojans bring back from a team

that finished runner-up in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division last season. In total, the Trojans have five girls back with varsity experience, led by two seniors in Morgan McKinney and Victoria Ries. Juniors Caroline Elsass-Smith and Caitlin Dowling also return, along with sophomore Allison Helman. Sophomore LeeAnn Black is expected to start the season in the varsity lineup. The rest of the girls will be on the junior varsity team for now, which will be led by another first-year coach in Erica Fields. Troy has 11 girls total, so five • See PLACE on page 14

For Brewer, his team — and his staff — are miles apart from where they were when the season opened one year ago. “It’s totally different this year than it was last year,” said Brewer, who led the Trojans to a 4-6 record last season, including four losses that came by a combined 20 points. “We learned a lot from last season. We went through a lot of turmoil last season. I feel more like a coach who has three, four or five years experience than a coach who is just entering his sophomore season. “We are definitely taking a better approach going into things this year than did last year. We are going a lot slower. Last • See TROY on page 18

MIAMI (AP) — The Florida High School Athletic Association will review its policies on performance-enhancing drugs following an allegation that its athletes were among the customers of the shuttered clinic at the center of the baseball scandal. The FHSAA said it has no proof to substantiate the claims of former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer, who has told The Associated Press and other media outlets in recent days that he saw the clinic’s operator give PEDs to high school players. But, as the state association sees it, even the mere suggestion that youngsters are involved with PEDs is reason enough to act. “It’s an issue that we have to address headon,” said Florida Sen. Bill Monford, a former school principal and superintendent. “And quite frankly, in my opinion, this is not a finger-pointing exercise. It’s truly an acknowledgment that we’ve got a problem and we also have a responsibility to address this issue. And we have to address it with vigor because if we don’t, the lives of many of our studentathletes … can be so negatively impacted.” The announcement came one day after Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players, including Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees, for having ties to Biogenesis, a clinic accused of distributing banned performance enhancers. Fischer has said that the clinic’s operator, Anthony Bosch, sold PEDs to a number of high school athletes, and that he came forward with those allegations with hopes that law enforcement would take a deeper look into what the clinic did before its doors closed. The FHSAA said it read those claims, and the association’s director called them “a wakeup call.” “We have received no proof or no evidence,” said Dr. Roger Dearing, the FHSAA’s director. “We don’t know if the NFL or the NBA or the baseball league has, but it’s obvious to us that through the news coverage that there is an issue with the Biogenesis lab in South Florida.” Rodriguez, who is appealing baseball’s ruling, was suspended for 211 games for what baseball said were his links to Biogenesis. His high school coach, Rich Hofman, said he was disappointed but not necessarily surprised when he heard allegations of high schoolers getting PEDs from the clinic.

Meyer says this is ‘candy’ time for Buckeyes COLUMBUS (AP) — Urban Meyer doesn’t know what to make of his current crop of Buckeyes yet. He believes he’ll have a better handle on them when practices get harder. A lot harder. “It’s the first day in pads. So right now this is all candy,” he said, flashing a wicked grin. “Come back in about a week and there’s going to be people asleep on the mattresses (by noon). It’s hard. Camp is terrible. But we’re not in camp yet. This is just practice.” That phrase — “just” prac-

tice — must sound ominous to the players already sweating through early workouts at Ohio State. Asked if he preferred the weather be a little hotter instead of so temperate, Meyer added, “Just see what goes on next week at Ackerman Field. It’s awful.” The Buckeyes went through only their third practice on Tuesday. There’s a lot that’s unknown about the 2013 team. But Meyer said he already has a pretty good feel when it comes to several major items. — Concerning star play-

ers Bradley Roby and running back Carlos Hyde, both in the doghouse after recent legal problems, both are practicing with the team. Roby is awaiting the next step in the process after being charged with misdemeanor battery after an incident at a Bloomington, Ind., bar this summer. “We’re just still waiting to find out all the information,” Meyer said. Police called Hyde a person of interest in an alleged assault against a woman. The alleged victim declined to pursue charges, with police ending the investigation. But

Hyde was suspended for the first three games by Meyer. — Meyer said he likes the players he has. He just wishes he had more of them in spots. Of major concern is a lack of depth at both the linebacker and offensive line positions. “They just don’t look Ohio Stateish,” he said of the backups. “Other positions, you can see three guys that are all good-looking players. The O-line and linebackers are not where we need to be.” Moreover, Meyer said • See BUCKEYES on page 14

Latos, Reds beat slumping A’s 3-1 Tigers beat Indians behind Verlander’s gem

CINCINNATI (AP) — Jay Bruce homered and made a run-saving catch on the warning track, and Mat Latos pitched into the eighth inning against Oakland’s slumping lineup on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics. The Reds had dropped seven of nine and were coming off what players called an embarrassing weekend against St. Louis — losses of 13-3 and 15-2. They found an American League team struggling even more. The West-leading Athletics have lost five of six. Latos (11-3) allowed four hits through 7 1-3 shutout innings, leaving him 3-0 in his last four starts. Aroldis Chapman gave up Derek Norris’ two-out homer in the ninth while getting his 26th save in 30 chances. Bruce hit his 23rd homer off Dan Straily (6-6), who has lost his last four starts.

of them will play JV for now, though Mercer said he wouldn’t be surprised to see any of those five compete for a varsity spot. McKenzie Pruitt, Raiann Rohlfs, Junior Lindsey Orozco, sophomore Hallie Brubaker and freshman Hope Jackson are the girls expected to compete for time on varsity. Though Mercer has liked what he’s seen so far, he wants nothing more than his team to build off of the success they had last year in terms of the GWOC North Division. And there’s one thing last years’ Trojans didn’t do that Mercer would like to see in his first year. “I’d like to compete for a championship, at least in our division,” Mercer said. “It would be nice for a few of our girls to compete for individual or all-conference awards, but competing for a league title has to become main our focus.” Troy opens the season with the Lady Bucc Pink Out today. • Tippecanoe Tippecanoe’s Lindsey Murray is looking to get back to state. And this season, her Red Devil teammates’ chances to go with her also improved in the offseason. The Red Devils will move from Division I to Division II for the postseason, removing some major potential obstacles from their way to the state tournament. “The big thing this year is that we’ve dropped down to Division II for the tournament, and that should give us a decent chance at the end of the year to do something positive,” fourth-year coach Scott Murray said. “In the past, we’ve always ran into those Cincinnati schools at the state qualifying meet at Weatherwax.” An experienced lineup increases their chances even more. Lindsey Murray qualified for the Division I state tournament as a freshman and sophomore, but she narrowly missed qualifying her junior year. As a senior, she’s setting her sights high. Also back for the Devils are junior Erika Brownlee and sophomores Tori Merrick, Ally Chitwood and Sammy Rowland. Freshmen Megan Knife and Chloe Woodworth join the lineup, as well. “Lindsey verbally committed to play at Xavier in the Big East, and she had a really good summer,” Murray said. “Erika and Tori especially put in a lot of time during the summer. We’re going to have a pretty decent team, and our (scores) will be low enough that we’re going to have a chance to do something at the end of the year.” • Miami East The Miami East Vikings are dealing with a slight numbers crunch this season, with only five players on the roster, but sixth-year coach Tom Meyer has three seniors that should help lead the team into Cross County Conference contention. Seniors Macaleh Thompson, Sam Denlinger and Carrie Wilson will be key to the Vikings’ hopes this season, particularly the more-experienced Thompson and Denlinger. Sophomore Kiera Fellers also got some

went a long way to run down Josh Reddick’s fly ball to the warning track in the fourth, saving a run. The A’s made their first visit to Great American Ball Park — opened in 2003 — hoping to break out of their offensive slump in a hitter-friendly place. The A’s are only 8-9 since the All-Star break. Heading into the interleague series, the A’s were batting .218 in their last 20 games, getting blanked four times. They were coming off a 4-0 loss to Texas on Sunday. Manager Bob Melvin said his players knew all about Great American’s propensity to help hitters, and hoped it would provide some encouragement. Didn’t work out that way. The A’s stranded runners in scoring position in the first, third, fifth and eighth innings. Coco Crisp tripled over first base with one out in the third but failed to score as the next two batters popped out. Their best chance

came in the fifth, when they loaded the bases on Stephen Vogt’s single, second baseman Brandon Phillips’ error and a walk. Yoenis Cespedes grounded into a forceout. Tigers 5, Indians 1 CLEVELAND — Justin Verlander dominated for eight innings and Don Kelly hit a threerun homer off Justin Masterson, leading the Detroit Tigers to their 10th straight win, 5-1 over the Cleveland Indians. Verlander (12-8) allowed one run and four hits as the Tigers beat the Indians for 10th time in 11 games and opened a five-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central. Kelly connected in the fifth inning off Masterson (13-8) and Miguel Cabrera picked up his 100th RBI as the Tigers improved to 11-3 against their nearest division rival. The Indians, who are 24-10 against the Central’s three other teams, have to hope they can win the next two over Detroit to split the series. To do that, they’ll have to beat Doug Fister and Max Scherzer.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Wide receiver Riley Cooper returned to the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday after a fourday excused absence to undergo sensitivity training after he was caught on film yelling a racial slur before a Kenny Chesney concert. Cooper, in his fourth year out of the University of Florida, seemed remorseful during an eight-minute press conference with the media after the Eagles and New England Patriots began what will be a three-day practice routine before Friday night’s preseason opener. “It’s great to be back doing Cooper what I love to do, play football,” Cooper said. “I realize being in the NFL you have responsibility to behave on and off the field. I realize that.” “I realize how many people I hurt, how many families I hurt, how many kids I hurt. It’s going to be tough. I’m going to live with this every day the rest of my life. It’s one of those things you can’t let affect your play on the field.” Video of Cooper’s racial slur surfaced Wednesday. He was immediately fined an undisclosed amount by the team, but was not suspended. Ironically, two days earlier he was promoted to the starting lineup after Jeremy Maclin suffered a season-ending injury. Last Friday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly announced that Cooper was given time off to seek counseling. Kelly did not put a timetable on his return. Four days later, he was back at practice and caught two touchdown passes against the Patriots’ defense.

“My concern wasn’t how he practiced,” Kelly said after practice. “It’s just him with the team itself and to get the chance to make sure he got to talk to every single guy so that they understood how we felt, what he did, and understand that he’s truly sorry for what he did.” Cooper said he talked to every one of his teammates, face to face, and apologized. “I told them I don’t want you to forgive me. That puts the burden on you. I want it all on me. I apologized,” he said. “They could tell it was from the heart. They know I’m not that kind of person. It feels good to have the support of the guys.” After one of his touchdown passes, he got a chest bump from teammate and fellow wide receiver Jason Avant, who is an African-American, and high fives from several other teammates. “I took a few days,” he said. “It’s been a tough, tough road. I talked to Chip. He asked me if I’m ready to come back. I told him I was. I wanted to get back on the field and get back out here with my guys.” Kelly emphasized that since the leave was an excused absence and not a suspension, Cooper was able to return once he felt he was ready. “I deferred to who he went to go visit with,” Kelly said. “Again, it wasn’t like he was suspended and he had to go through a set of things to come back. We just excused him, because everybody that met with him — and Riley himself — felt that he needed to go talk to someone.”

Tippecanoe’s Lindsey Murray returns this season.

experience last season, and junior Megan Petit will round out the lineup. “This year is going to be a good year for us with three seniors,” Meyer said. “Two of them are really good leaders and are going to teach the underclassmen a lot. “Our goal is the same as every year – I want to win the CCC finally. It’s going to be tough, though, with Covington returning a lot of girls. I’d also like to get someone out of the sectional.” • Covington Covington girls golf coach Ron Schultz always expects his team to compete for a Cross County Conference title. And just because his roster took a hit to graduation — losing three all-league performers in Cassie Ingle, Jamie Crowell and Katie Blair off a team that won the CCC and qualified for district — Schultz still thinks his team has a shot to compete for a league title. Senior Allison Ingle, who placed third at the CCC match last season, with hopes of being the top player in the conference this year. Fellow senior, Morgan McReynolds will be back for the Buccs in her second season of golf. “She’s got one year of golf experience, but she’s an excellent all-around athlete, she plays basketball and softball,” Schultz said. “She’s been working on her game, I think she’s going to show a lot of improvement this year.” The four other players the Buccs have, however, are all newbies. Junior Sadie Canan, sophomore Kristie Romie, Kelsey McReynolds and Addison Metz are the newcomers. Metz is coming off a summer where she won her age group at the Echo Hills Camp Tournament. The Buccs begin their season at the Covington Eagles Lady Bucc Pink Out today. It is the fifth time Covington has hosted the event at Echo Hills Golf Course.

problem probably cannot be fixed with the people on hand. “(Maybe) with another recruiting class,” he said. “Yeah, we’re going to have to hang in there for this fall and not get guys hurt. Because we have depth issues there.” — He is not concerned about the quarterback spot, where Braxton Miller is coming back for his third year as the starter. Miller has grown into the position. He was thrown into a bad spot, learning on the job as a freshman during the tumultuous 2011 season when NCAA investigators were on campus, Luke Fickell was filling in for the deposed Jim Tressel as head coach and there was confusion everywhere. The Buckeyes went 6-7. As a sophomore, Miller carried the team with his running ability for much of the first half of the season, then reverted more to passing in the second half as the Buckeyes pulled a 12-0 record out of the hat. Still, he had his highs and his lows. There was and is room for improvement, even for a quarterback who ran for 1,271 yards and 13 scores and passed for 2,039 yards and 15 touchdowns with only six interceptions. Ed Warinner, Ohio State’s cooffensive coordinator and offensive line coach, said there are several things that jump out when you look at Miller now. “In terms of his technique, it’s his footwork and all his techniques, his mannerisms, running the offense but setting his feet, throwing, making his reads, keeping the ball in the right position, his footwork on runs and meshing with the running backs,” Warinner said. “Technically, he’s a better player and he’s much more con-

fident and he’s much more of a leader and really has a much better understanding the big picture of what’s going on.” — Meyer expressed satisfaction with the early returns on Australian punter Cameron Johnston, a freshman running back and a huge fillin on the offensive front wall. Johnston is a former Australian Rules Football player who is being asked to step in for the graduated Ben Buchanan. “He’s got a live leg,” the secondyear coach said. “He’s a tremendous kid, 21 years old, so he’s not that 17-year-old, wide-eyed guy that looks at you like, ‘What planet am I on?’ He’s a fast athlete, so we might be able to do some things with him, moving the pocket and so forth.” Meyer called Johnston his “No. 1 guy” at punter. Dontre Wilson, recruited as a generic athlete in February, has made an impression so far at a running back. “He’s got something that we didn’t have last year and that’s just ‘jets,’” Meyer said, referring to the DeSoto, Texas, native’s speed. Up front, Taylor Decker has looked solid in his attempt to fill the spot at right tackle. At 6-foot7 and more than 300 pounds, he made some headway as a backup last year during his first year on campus and has continued to improve. “I feel like I’m getting there now,” Decker said. “I feel really comfortable with the playbook, like I’m definitely able to play full speed all the time.” The Buckeyes opened camp Sunday and will slowly change the focus from drills and learning the playbook to concentrating on the opener Aug. 31 against Buffalo.

Dalton looking to become Andy Ice for Cincy FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton hopes to build a late-game resume similar to Falcons QB Matt Ryan's. Ryan, despite coming up 10 yards short of winning the NFC championship last season, has earned the nickname Matty Ice after leading Atlanta to 22 winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime during his fiveyear career. Dalton, whose red hair led Cincinnati's radio network to affectionately call him "The Red Rifle", has played well inside opponents' 20-yard line. He has 35 touchdowns and zero interceptions inside the opponents' 20yard line, and joined Dan Marino and Peyton Manning as the only QBs to throw at least 43 touchdown passes in their first two seasons. Dalton's body of work, though, has lacked an abundance of comebacks. "At the end of the game, you've got to find a way to win," Dalton said. "I know Matt's done a really nice job and he's done a lot of good things since he's been in the league. He's a guy that's fun to watch." Dalton helped rally the Bengals four times in the fourth quarter of his rookie season two years ago, and last Dec. 23 at Pittsburgh he connected with A.J. Green to set up Josh Brown's winning field goal with 4 seconds left, putting Cincinnati in the postseason and eliminating the Steelers from playoff contention.

Cam Newton, Manziel have conversation SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Cam Newton can relate to what Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel is going through. And the Panthers quarterback said Tuesday he's spoken to Manziel a few times this offseason about coping with the pressures of being a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback living college life in the limelight. Newton wouldn't discuss the specifics of the conversations, saying they are personal, just between him and Manziel. But he said Manziel "has to go through these types of situations to know how to handle them in the future. When somebody comes up to you and asks for your autograph, you don't know if they're going to do it for good or bad" purposes. Like Manziel, Newton was under media scrutiny at Auburn during an NCAA investigation into pay-for-play allegations. Newton was not found to have committed any wrongdoing and wasn't suspended from any games. "For any college athlete you are vulnerable to so many things," Newton said. "You think everybody loves you for who you are." Newton said that was a tough lesson to learn while he was at Auburn. "When I was there at college so many people wanted from me and I wanted to give so much," Newton said. "Like I would sign this and give my time and this, this and that. And nobody was looking at it through my (eyes). If you say no to this particular person you are going to be a (jerk). You are going to be the person that people look at as, 'What's up? We came out here and supported you and cheered for you and you can't sign an autograph?' Never mind that you signed 300 other autographs before. But that's the nature of the beast."

Stewart breaks leg

3-time NASCAR champ has surgery following Iowa crash

AP PHOTO Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart, third from left, is loaded into an ambulance after being involved in a four-car wreck Monday at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa. A spokesman for Stewart said the 42-year-old driver broke his right tibia and fibula and had surgery after he was transported to a local hospital.

ships, people respected me.” “If they are worrying about their jobs and him getting hurt, what’s to say he won’t have a heart attack tomorrow and die?” Foyt said. “He might die and it might not be from racing. I had business and I still raced. I always said I am going to continue racing until I don’t want to race anymore and he’s the same way.” Stewart took responsibility for triggering a roughly 10-car accident at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park on July 16 in which 19-year-old Alysha Ruggles injured her back. Last week, in a sprint car race at Ohsweken Speedway in Ontario, Stewart rolled his car five times but walked away. He stayed at the track to compete in the World of Outlaws race the next night and bristled at the NASCAR event at Pocono Raceway when asked about his harrowing incident in Canada.

But Stewart had long refused to slow down his sprint car racing schedule, and passionately defended it following the June death of friend Jason Leffler in an accident at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. He was just as impassioned last Friday at Pocono when asked about his accident last week in Canada in which Stewart flipped a sprint car five times. His childhood hero, four-time Indianapolis 500 winner A.J. Foyt, defended Stewart on Tuesday for sticking to his passion and being a true “racer.” “He ain’t no prima donna and life is short, and we don’t know how we are going to die or what’s going to happen,” Foyt said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “I just hate to see anybody badmouth Tony for anything he’s doing, and if they are, they are just jealous. People saying he’s putting his businesses at risk? I had three dealer-


KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) — Tony Stewart told anyone who would listen why he continued racing anywhere, anytime, regardless of purse or crowd or car. Even after he flipped five times last week, Stewart was quick to offer a stout defense for his short-track weeknight racing while some questioned if his extracurricular racing was putting his championship chances in NASCAR at risk. Well, his championship chances are officially over for this season. The three-time NASCAR champion broke his right leg Monday night at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, where he flipped his 360 winged sprint car while leading with five laps remaining in the 30-lap feature. He had surgery Tuesday on the upper and lower parts of his leg, and Stewart-Haas Racing said he’ll need a second surgery. He remained hospitalized and there was no timetable for his return to racing. Max Papis was tabbed to replace Stewart this weekend in the No. 14 Chevrolet at Watkins Glen, where Stewart is a five-time winner and his streak of 521 consecutive starts will end. “I told someone to go get my phone or else I was going to get up and get it myself,” Stewart said Tuesday in a Facebook post. “Finally got reconnected to the world and just want to say thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. My team will remain strong and I will be back.” The 42-year-old Stewart has wrecked three times in the last month in extracurricular racing, and the latest came a day after he finished ninth at Pocono in a NASCAR event to position himself 11th in the Sprint Cup standings with five races remaining to set the Chase for the championship field.

“You mortals have got to learn, you guys need to watch more sprint car videos and stuff,” he said Friday. “It was not a big deal. It’s starting to get annoying this week about that. That was just an average sprint car wreck. When they wreck, they get upside down like that.” Following Leffler’s death, Stewart defended track and sprint car safety. “I’d be grateful if you guys would understand that what happened this week wasn’t because somebody didn’t do something right with the race track. It was an accident. Just like if you go out and there’s a car crash. It’s an accident,” Stewart said days after Leffler’s death. “Nobody as a track owner wants to go through what happened, but it’s not due to a lack of effort on their part to try to make their facilities as safe as possible under the conditions they have.” On Sunday, veteran sprint car driver Kramer Williamson died from injuries suffered during a qualifying race at Lincoln Speedway in central Pennsylvania. Williamson, 63, was pronounced dead at York Hospital from serious injuries suffered in a crash that occurred Saturday night during the United Racing Company 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge. Although it sounds cliche, Foyt believes racers want to go out doing what they love. “Tony is a true racer,” Foyt said. “That’s one thing I respect about him. A lot of them people go to NASCAR and become a kingpin in one type of car. Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne, they all were sprint car and midget cars drivers first, like Tony, and Tony still is a sprint car driver and it’s a shame he got hurt. But I don’t see where someone can condemn him for it.” Gordon said it became too difficult for him to juggle various series when he went full-time NASCAR in 1991.

Heat-Bulls, Lakers-Clippers on NBA’s opening night NEW YORK (AP) — The Miami Heat will open their title defense against the Chicago Bulls on Oct. 29 in the expected return of Derrick Rose, with an allLos Angeles matchup later that night in the Lakers’ first game without Dwight Howard and the Clippers’ first with Doc Rivers. The NBA’s 2013-14 schedule, released Tuesday, also features a potential LeBron James-Kobe Bryant duel on Christmas in Los Angeles, right after scoring stars Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant match up across the country in New York. Howard’s first visit to the Lakers since leaving for Houston as a free agent doesn’t come until Feb. 19, giving Bryant plenty of time to get back to full strength from his torn Achilles’ tendon near the end of last season. The Indiana Pacers host the Orlando Magic in the opening game of the season, about the time the Heat are holding another championship ring ceremony. Then Miami will try to give Rose a rough welcome back in what’s likely to be his first NBA game since tearing his knee in the opening game of the 2012 playoffs. Most teams open on Oct. 30. Two nights later, the Heat will serve as the opponent for the new-look Brooklyn Nets’ first home game since acquiring Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from Boston. That duo, which helped lead the Celtics to the 2008 NBA championship,

937-693-8043 Hours Mon.-Sat. 11AM-12AM, Sunday 11AM-8PM

will make its emotional return to Boston on Jan. 26. Rivers will coach his first game back there on Dec. 11 — one night after the Celtics see Garnett and Pierce for the first time in Brooklyn. Rivers will then renew acquaintances with his two star players on Dec. 12 at Barclays Center. Other highlights of the schedule, which was released during an NBA TV special program: — No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett could make his NBA debut at home when Cleveland hosts Brooklyn on Oct. 30. —The Heat will host the Spurs on Jan. 26 in their first meeting since they edged San Antonio in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. The teams also meet in Texas on March 6. —The m a rq u e e Christmas Day schedule features five games: Chicago at Brooklyn, Oklahoma City at New York, Miami at the Lakers, Houston at San Antonio, and the Clippers at Golden State. —The Nets have a threegame road trip in three different countries from Jan. 11-20. They open at Toronto, travel to London to face the Atlanta Hawks on Jan. 16 in the O2 Arena, and then return to New York to visit the rival Knicks in a Dr. Martin Luther King Day matinee. —San Antonio and Minnesota play Dec. 4 in Mexico City. The regular season ends April 16. The All-Star game is Feb. 16 in New Orleans.

Confederate General John Hunt Morgan led cavalrymen into battle in southwest Ohio in July 1863. His men, also known as Morgan’s Raiders, included Morgan’s younger brothers Calvin, Richard, Charleton and Thomas. His Chief of Staff was his brother-in-law Colonel Basil W. Duke. On July 2, the raid began in Kentucky with almost 2,500 men. Morgan and his Raiders moved from Kentucky into Indiana. On July 12, Ohio Governor David Tod called out Ohio’s militia to protect the southern parts of Ohio from the Raiders. Almost 50,000 men from 32 counties responded to the Governor’s call. On July 14, Morgan’s Raiders entered Ohio near Camp Dennison in Hamilton County. His troops burned bridges, destroyed railroad depots and threatened to burn down mills. More than 4,000 Ohio families had many items stolen. Morgan’s Raiders robbed farmhouses and looted stores, taking food, water, money and other John H. Morgan & wife items. Ohio farmers called Morgan the “king of Martha “Mattie” Ready horse thieves,” because he and his men stole Courtesy of the Library of Congress, more than 2,000 horses.

Hayes and William McKinley. Nearly 1,200 of Morgan’s men were taken prisoner while a Union gunboat kept them from escaping. On July 26, near West Point, Ohio in Columbiana County, Morgan was tricked by a 16-year-old who gave him false information about where the Union troops were stationed.

year, it seemed at times like we were just throwing things against the wall to see what stuck. This year, we may spend 10 days going over the same play — but we are going to do it until we get it right.” Brewer said every position is up for grabs going into camp — but certain positions are certainly more “open” than others. Offensively, players such as senior quarterback Matt Barr, senior offensive linemen Alex Dalton, Andrew Kostecka and Austin Eidemiller, senior tailback Miles Hibbler and senior tight end Seth Overla are pretty much locks for starting jobs — one position the Trojans will be looking at closely is right guard. “We’ve got a battle going on for right guard,” Brewer said. “Honestly, I couldn’t tell you who is in the lead. We’ve got six different guys we are looking at right now. We’ll get them all reps at that spot and hopefully someone will emerge who we can count on for the rest of the season.” Defensively, the Trojans face heavier losses from last season — but one key area the Trojans will be looking at during the preseason is one of the outside linebacker positions. Junior Marco Anverse will move from defensive end to inside linebacker, where he’ll be joined by fellow junior Anthony Shoop. Josh Detrick has the inside track to one of the outside linebacker spots — but the other outside linebacker spot

remains up for grabs. “We feel pretty good about Anverse, Shoop and Detrick at three of the linebacker spots — which isn’t to say they are perfect. They’ve still got a long way to go, because I am going to demand perfection on that side of the ball, but

they are working hard and looking good. We’ve got four other guys we are looking at for the other outside linebacker position.” The Trojans will hold a scripted, intrasquad scrimmage Saturday, then travel to Reynoldsburg for a scrimmage

at 9:30 a.m. Aug. 17. Troy will host Dunbar at 7 p.m. Aug. 23 in its final scrimmage before opening the regular season against Chaminade-Julienne. “The kids are looking good so far,” Brewer said. “Everyone is working hard. Things are going well.”

Bolt runs to the rescue at worlds in Moscow MOSCOW (AP) — Heading into the world championships, Usain Bolt stands tall as ever while the sport around him has diminished. It was always going to be a stretch for Bolt to match his exuberance and mass appeal from the London Olympics. But now the burden to carry his sport grows even more following a startling array of no-shows and doping scandals that has hit track and field

hard. Bolt is in a prime spot to add to his haul of gold medals. Of the sprinters who will be in Moscow for next week’s championships, he has the fastest times in the 100 and 200 meters. And given Jamaica’s strength in the 4x100 relay, he is favored for another golden triple. Both won three golds at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, three at the London Games

and three more at the 2009 worlds in Berlin. And with seven world championship medals already, a triple of any color would also move him alongside American great Carl Lewis as the most medaled man in the event’s history with 10 overall. “Right now, my only focus is winning three gold medals,” Bolt said in an email exchange with The Associated Press. Only a year ago, Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake was challenging Bolt for Olympic supremacy in London, but came up with silver. This year was supposed to give him another shot, but the sprinter who won the world title in Daegu, South Korea, two years ago after Bolt false-started is out with a hamstring injury. In Blake’s absence, a revitalized Tyson Gay was to challenge hard. Yet even though the American has the two top times over the 100 this year, Gay’s year, and perhaps his career, came crashing down when he relinquished his U.S. sprint spots

for Moscow after failing an out-of-competition doping test. Almost at the same time, it was announced that former worldrecord holder Asafa Powell tested positive for the stimulant oxilofrone at the Jamaican national championships in June. The scandals leave Justin Gatlin as Bolt’s toughest competitor in the worlds’ premier event. The 2004 Olympic champion already beat the Jamaican at the Diamond League meet in Rome this spring, Bolt’s only competitive flaw this season. “He knows that I’m going to come with my ‘A’ and he’s going to come with his ‘A’ game,” Gatlin said. “We’re both the kind of people that turn it on when the lights come on in a competition.” In his favorite race, the 200, Bolt is going for his third straight world title. His competition will be as much the clock as teammate Warren Weir. Bolt set the world record of 19.19 seconds at the 2009 worlds, but still feels he can improve. “The 200 world

record would be the one I’d really love to break again, to see if it’s maybe even possible to get it under 19 seconds,” Bolt said. And when Bolt sets himself a challenge, he all too often turns it into reality. The London Olympics still had plenty of world records, and none of the four was bigger than David Rudisha’s gold rush in the 800. The Kenyan, however, has seen his season go to waste because of a knee injury, robbing the championships of another big star. Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill is also a no-show because of an Achilles tendon problem. And the local crowd won’t even be able to shout for the defending champion, Tatyana Chernova, since she, too, is injured. Even off the track, drugs aside, the sport has been reeling. Besides Bolt, no track athlete quite sparked the London Games like Oscar Pistorius. The double amputee South African enthralled the 80,000-seat capacity crowds, proving that competing can be as important as winning. One year later, Pistorius is preparing for his murder trial in the Valentine Day’s shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. “I don’t ever remember going into a world championships with

this sort of, I don’t want to say doldrums, but I’d be lying if I said we have the normal anticipation and hype going into the worlds,” four-time Olympic medalist and commentator Ato Boldon said. Besides Bolt, Mo Farah will be going for multiple gold. After he clinched the longdistance double at the London Games, he is a favorite to repeat the 5,000-10,000 double at the Luzhniki Stadium. While the established stars are not there, it is also time for fresh faces. At 24, Blessing Okagbare is hardly new, but Moscow could well become her breakthrough. The Nigerian has been strong in the sprints and long jump and, having beaten top challengers in all three events this year, she could be going for a triple gold. Also look for Brianna Rollins, the 21-year-old hurdler. She became the third-best performer in history in the 100 hurdles when she ran an American record of 12.26 at the U.S. championships in the fastest time in 21 years. Not only does it underscore the potential for a world record at the championships, it also shows that, even with much new blood in the team, the United States looks set to dominate again.
