Amid crackdown, Egypt’s protesters shift tactics CAIRO (AP) — Reeling from a fierce security crackdown, the Muslim Brotherhood brought out only scattered, small crowds Friday in its latest protests of Egypt’s military coup. While the remnants of the Brotherhood’s leadership are still able to exhibit strong coordination from underground, the arrests of thousands of its supporters and members — and the fear of more bloodshed — have weakened its ability to mobilize the streets. The day’s largest single demonstration was a little more than 10,000 people outside the presidential palace in Cairo, with dozens of gatherings of about 100 protesters or fewer in multiple sites around the capital and the provinces. It was an intentional shift in tactics from a week ago, when the group failed to rally in a single location as a show of strength.

‘So far, so good’ Authorities urge crowds to have fun, stay safe Melanie Yingst

Staff Writer

TROY — With the crowds growing larger by the minute, both Chief Chris Boehringer of the city of Troy Fire Department and Capt. Joe Long of the city of Troy Police Department agreed that hydration and cooperation go hand in hand for a smooth weekend during the Gentlemen of the Road music festival. According to Capt. Joe Long, “so far so good” was his reaction to the crowds which filtered into downtown Troy Thursday night and Friday afternoon. Long said the police force had not received a high volume of calls in reference to the concert venue, although one person was arrested and incarcerated at the Miami County Jail Thursday evening for disorderly conduct due to alcohol use. The name of

the suspect was not available at press time. Long said — contrary to rumor — the police department is not intentionally ignoring issues such as marijuana use,

TROY — Steady crowds and a music stage right out the front door were music to the ears of Jason Tucholski, manager of MoJo’s Bar and Grille, located at 109 E. Main St. in downtown Troy. Tucholski said crowds during Thursday’s kickoff were steady and the crowds were picking up Friday afternoon as Troy hosts one of only three U.S. tour stops for the Gentlemen of the Road tour, featuring Grammy awardwinning musicians Mumford

but is busy keeping all guests safe and secure in terms of public safety. Long said the crowds have been calm and other than the one “unruly guest” Thursday evening and said the police scanner has been quiet in terms of crowd control thus far on Friday afternoon. City of Troy Fire Department Chief Chris Boehringer said all medical stations were fully staffed with physicians, nurses and techs to address dehydration issues on site throughout the weekend. Boehringer said medical staff would be available at the Troy Rec and at the Troy Memorial Stadium to treat dehydration and other minor medical issues around the clock. “When the temperature goes up, people need to be very careful,” Boehringer said with the

Begur Oli Thorvaedarson, Bryujar Oru Sigurdorsson, Arni Saemundsson and Arnar Pall Sigrunarson walk the streets of downtown Troy Friday. All four flew in from Iceland to hear Mumford & Sons play tonight as a part of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Tour.

TROY — Many people around town this weekend may say they are the biggest Mumford & Sons fans in the world — and probably more actually believe it. Few, however, can prove the depths of their devotion quite like four fans from Iceland who flew into the United States strictly for this weekend’s Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Tour. Arnar Pall Sigrunarson, Arni Saemundsson, Bryujar Orn

Sigurdorsson and Bergur Oli Thorvaedarson all took a fivehour flight from their home in Iceland into New York City earlier this week, then rented a car and drove to Troy — by way of Washington D.C. — with one purpose in mind. “We came to see Mumford & Sons” Sigrunarson said. He and his three friends are believed to be the group that traveled the furthest to see the Grammy Award-winning band, which plays tonight at Troy Memorial Stadium. “I have always loved them, then I made them start

TIPP CITY — More details have been released about Wednesday’s fiery crash on I-75 southbound that left two semi truck drivers dead. The accident also sent one driver to the hospital and shut down traffic for almost 21 hours, according to the Piqua post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol. According to reports, Dial Jhutti of Brampton, Ontario, Canada, was driving a commercial semi and failed to slow down for construction traffic. At about 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Jhutti struck the back of a Pontiac Sunfire driven by Loretta Stotler of Sidney. The Sunfire was pushed into the median cement barrier while Jhutti’s vehicle continued into another tractor trailer, driven by Michael Moore of Pierceton, Ind. Moore’s semi was forced into the middle lane and rear of another commerical vehicle, that one driven by Reynold Flemming of Brentwood, N.Y. Moore’s semi was then forced into the median cement barrier by Jhutti’s truck. Fleming’s vehicle was forced into the back of a Chevrolet Venture driven by William Shaw and passenger Judy Shaw of Xenia. The Venture then was forced into the back of a trailered boat and Ford F-350 driven by Chris Black of Howell, Mich. Black’s truck was forced into the rear of a Scion FRS, driven by Thomas Burrow of Cincinnati. Jhutti’s, Stotler’s and Moore’s vehicles all caught fire after the crash. Fuel tanks from Jhutti and Moore’s trucks spilled diesel fuel and were apparently ignited from the impact. Moore and Jhutti were both found ejected from their semis and prounounced dead at the scene by Miami County Coroner investigators. Stotler sustained nonlife threatening injuries and was transported to the Upper Valley Medical Center by Tipp City emergency medical services personnel. The other five people involved in the crash were treated for minor injuries and released at the scene. Reports state that section of the interstate was closed completely for approximately four hours due to the extreme heat and flames. Traffic was restricted in the southbound lanes for approximately 21 hours due to incident clean-up and asphalt or repairs. Personnel from the Tipp City Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Services; Vandalia and Butler Township Fire Department; Miami County Sheriff’s Office; Ohio Department of Transportation; Ohio State Highway Patrol crash reconstruction unit and motor carrier inspectors all assisted with scene securement, investigation and traffic control. The crash remains under investigation.

n Continued from page 1 combination of high temperatures and alcohol use. Advanced Life Support and medical teams were on ATVs and bicycles to reach those who need medical services. Boehringer said dehydration could easily be treated at each site by IV fluids and those who need the services would be able to return to the venue after a few hours of treatment. “We have physicians, nurses and techs ready to go — the whole nine yards,” he said Friday afternoon. “The best advice I can give is alternate one alcohol bever-

age with water or Gatorade.” At least one concert-goer was being treated at Troy Memorial Stadium for heat related illness as of press time according to police scanner traffic. Boehringer said 225 volunteers are on working throughout the weekend, including support from Montgomery and Clark counties to staff and man each fire station on top of the concert traffic for general public safety. “We have at least seven local fire departments at all three stations and extra

engines at Stations 2 and 3,” Boehringer said ‘There will be nine to 10 (fire department staff members) at each of the two stations at all times and will be able to respond to every need with each crew.” Boehringer said the additional support provides him and the public with necessary “peace of mind” throughout the Labor Day weekend’s festivities. “We definitely appreciate all the help to provide peace of mind for our public during this weekend,” Boehringer said.

n Continued from page 1 and Sons. “It’s been a good, steady crowd so far — everybody is definitely help each other out,” said Tucholski, who said he ordered plenty of beer and spirits for the event — although, he noted “beer can go bad” if left unsold. Tucholski said he built a staff of up to 20 volunteers and staff will be on hand for the event to help pour drinks and check IDs throughout the weekend. “There’s a lot of helpers giving us a hand

this weekend,” he said. “Downtown is great and we are all pulling together and partnering to make this a great event.” Donato’s Pizza of Troy set up shop outside of MoJo’s Bar and Grille to feed the masses after their glasses were empty. Tucholski said staff members were keeping a close eye for the “threshold law” to keep patrons inside who are not allowed to carry drinks out of the bar during the event.

“It’s going pretty well — the crowd has been calm, cool and very friendly and nice,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed meeting people from places like Chicago. About 20 out of 30 people have been from Chicago which has been pretty interesting actually. I’m just having fun asking where everybody is from. Like the two girls down there are from Philadelphia and I have friends there so it’s been just fun making conversation with everybody

that stops in.” MoJo’s also was a stop for the Gentlemen of the Road passport stamps as people lined up for their individual stamps to mark their stop at the popular drinking stop. On the other side of downtown, Country Bulk Barn owner Gordon Snow said he is well stocked with cold drinks and ice cream to cool off festival fans. “We got everything decorated and did some different things for this

event,”Snow said. One of the newer downtown businesses, Snow said he is excited to see the crowds filter in for the weekend. “We are very excited and have plenty of stock on hand,” Snow said. “Plenty of ice cream — that seems to be selling well and should be sold out by the weekend — we can always get more.” Snow said he and his staff plan on staying open “until we get tired” each night of the festival.

“We are as read as we can be,” Snow said. “We are rip-roaring to go.” Hot dogs and “grab and go” style sandwiches and burritos will also be on hand at the Country Bulk Barn, located at 4 W. Main St., Troy. “We’ll stay open until we run out, but that’s not a bad thing,” Snow said.

would feel most at home here. In addition to going to the concert, they have spent the week seeing all Troy and its surrounding areas have to offer. Friday, they ate lunch at The Caroline with Troy Mayor Michael Beamish and city staff members Sue Knight and Patrick Titterington. In addition to receiving gifts representative of Troy from Beamish, they also came bearing gifts from their homeland, including dried fish, Icelandic licorice, chocolate, spirits and emblams. “People from our country have been here and

been to big cities like New York and Boston — we wanted to see the countryside,” Sigurdorsson said. Which isn’t to say they weren’t impressed during their stop in New York. “We don’t have skyscraper in Iceland,” Sigurdorsson said. “When we looked up, we couldn’t see the top of the Empire State Building. We just kept looking up, up, up and almost feel over backwards looking up at it.” They’ve also been sampling plenty of local food during their stay in the United States — from

restaurants to convenience stores. The four have eaten at McDonalds — which they have in Iceland, along with Taco Bell and Kentucky Fried Chicken — and 7-11. Friday, they got their first taste of the Troy Music Boosters’ famous strawberry doughnuts. They’ve already eaten at The Caroline twice — with Thorvaedarson ordering a cheeseburger and french fries both days. He said he also plans on eating at K’s while he’s in Troy. “I love hamburgers,” Thorvaedarson said. One thing they still

are trying to adjust to is Troy’s heat and humidity. “Right now it’s snowing in Iceland,” said Thorvaedarson, who is a farmer in Iceland. “I’m supposed to go up into the mountains to bring my sheep down.” Despite the heat, however, all four said they have been enjoying their time in the United States — and Troy in particular. “The roundabout is beautiful,” Sigurdorsson said, referring to the public square in downtown Troy. “It really catches your eye. When you look up Troy on Google, that

is the picture you see. It’s even more beautiful in person.” Following lunch, the four went to Mojos Bar and Grill for drinks before two of them, Sigurdorsson and Thorvaedarson went to A&A Ink to get Gentlemen of the Road mustache tattoos, a permanent reminder of their time in Troy. The four will be driving back to New York Sunday to leave for Iceland. “The name of the tour is Gentlemen of the Road, so we decided to be Gentlemen of the Road,” Sigurdorsson said.


n Continued from page 1 listening to Mumford & Sons. We were going to go to their show in Denmark in February, but we missed that.” “That show sold out in 10 minutes,” Sigurdorsson said. “When we looked on the website to see where the tour was coming in America, we saw the four other places they were playing and we thought Troy, Ohio looked like the perfect place to see them. It’s in the country — that fits their music.” All four come from cities in Iceland smaller than Troy and thought they

Question: Do you think the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Tour is a good thing or a bad thing?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Watch for a new poll question in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News


EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on why Bradley Manning didn’t deserve a 35-year sentence: Bradley Manning is no hero. He betrayed his country by leaking a huge trove of documents to the information insurgent Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. But the acts of this lowly private first class don’t justify the harsh 35-year sentence he received. Manning was an easy mark for an administration bent on prosecutorial overreach. The message President Barack Obama is sending to legitimate whistle-blowers is clear: Leak documents, and you will pay dearly. Anyone interested in open government should be deeply skeptical of Obama’s tactics. When he ran for president in 2008, Obama promised transparency and openness, and he was harshly critical of President George W. Bush, calling his “one of the most secretive administrations in our nation’s history.” Obama also vowed to protect whistle-blowers. Instead, he has gone after them in court. Obama’s administration has brought charges against six people so far for leaking information, more than all other presidents combined. These include the vindictive case against Thomas A. Drake, a former National Security Agency official, who shared documents about alleged agency mismanagement with a reporter for the Baltimore Sun. He had aired the same criticisms with Congress and the Defense Department’s inspector general. Drake was indicted on 10 felony counts under the Espionage Act in a case that dragged on for four long years and ruined Drake’s reputation before most of the charges were dropped and he was set free with the judge chastising the government. Manning’s actions were serious. The release of documents embarrassed American diplomats and may have put people at risk. Although there is no evidence that anyone was killed as a result of the document dump, some of the files given to WikiLeaks were found in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan and turned up in an al-Qaida video. But Manning also provided WikiLeaks with videos of airstrikes in which civilians and journalists were killed and files about detainees held at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This was information that the public should have known — and didn’t — until Manning leaked it to Assange. The point is that there was public value in what Manning did — to a point. To us, the fault lies as much with the mercurial Assange as with Manning. Assange chose to publish the documents scattershot without regard for the safety of human rights workers, dissidents or informants. … The Bradley Mannings of the world undermine the good intentions of legitimate whistle-blowers and put the nation at risk. But what of an administration so impulsively prone to keep its own counsel? Citizens must be on guard against that as well. Express News, San Antonio, on Mexico should allow investment: Mexico’s natural resources are its own. There is no contradiction in that and reform that could allow some reasonable level of private investment in its oil. Pemex, Mexico’s state oil monopoly, is in dire need of the technological improvements that might come with that foreign investment. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is proposing reform that falls short of a foreign company’s ability to own the oil and gas that the firm drills in Mexico. But this just isn’t in the cards. Mexicans have opposed constitutional tweaking that might even hint at anything less than 100 percent ownership of Mexican oil. Nonetheless, Peña Nieto has proposed constitutional changes that would allow foreign firms to share some of the risk and profits of oil exploration. Mexican oil production has dropped 25 percent in the last decade as wells have dried up. More Mexican oil exists in deeper water and in shale, much as in the Eagle Ford play. The petro facts of life being what they are in Mexico, Peña Nieto’s modest reforms are the most that can be accomplished.


I was impressed by community’s response Driving in Troy this evening, I came upon a group of people tending to a lad that had apparently had a bicycle accident. Two were tending to his wounds, two others blocking the sidewalk from oncoming foot or bike traffic, another at the curb, keeping traffic clear of the situation. A sixth was on her cellphone, and I am guessing she was trying to get to the lad’s parents as the ambulance was approaching

from up the street a short distance. The curb dude stepped into the street to stop traffic and give the EMTs a wide berth to park their squad. All tending to the young lad were acting in an altruistic but yet calm manner, without any apparent emotional or irrational behavior. I am thinking the collective managed to soothe the young man into a state of calm while they waited for

professional treatment.… That the lad and the group were of different (some bigots would say opposing) ethnicities made me feel even prouder of the lot of them. Way to go, folks, way to go! Thank you for the uplift. And, prayers for the lad and his family. — Lyle Whybrew Tipp City

Five things I will never, ever look at the same way again You’ll have to excuse me for being a little late to this party.We packed up our kids, met up with our best friends and their daughter and took a long weekend road trip to the Smoky Mountains. So rather than spend the weekend glued to the television or perusing our Facebook pages, we were hiking the backwoods of our cabin, getting lost in swimming holes and drinking moonshine out of a mason jar (we like to get into character). So you’ll have to forgive the fact that I didn’t see the MTV music awards this past weekend. Well, and the fact that I didn’t even know they were on this weekend. Or that they still did them. Or that I haven’t watched MTV in a good five years. Honestly, I’m lucky a Disney star all grown up decided to go Girls Gone Wild with a foam finger, otherwise, I might have missed out on what a gem the VMA’s are these days. And after watching a YouTube video of that, ergh, ‘performance,’ I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at Miley Cyrus the same way, or tongues for that matter. And it made me wonder, what else has changed in my eyes? We’ll just go ahead and start the list with Miley Cyrus. To be

honest, I’ve never been a lover won’t ever view the word ‘poop’ of her, but I’ve also never been the same way again. I used to a hater. I remember working at literally loathe the word. I would the law firm and listening to my rather use a slew of curse words fellow case managers talk about in front of a small child than shelling out gobs of money for utter the word ‘poop.’ And then I Hannah Montana tickets. And had a baby. A baby who wouldn’t actually, a former boss of mine poop. And in the months we might have had a thing for her spent working out her digestive show too. But my mind system, the word poop was pretty much made up became one of my favorites the second she decided to ever. So much that at three grace the MTV audience years old when my daughwith her performance of ter says everything looks, a lifetime. And by that, smells and is poopy, I laugh I mean the one that will instead of cringe. I’ll never ruin her lifetime.

Ohio program to help drug-addicted babies, mothers COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio plans to start a program to help babies who are born addicted to drugs, as officials look to address prescription drug abuse and opiate addiction. About 200 mothers and babies who are addicted to painkillers and heroin would get treatment and counseling under the $4.2 million, three-year pilot program, Gov. John Kasich’s administration announced Thursday. Ohio has launched efforts in recent years to crack down on illegal prescription painkiller use and distribution, including changing guidelines for emergency room doctors and closing clinics where doctors were improperly prescribing drugs. Overdose drug deaths have surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of accidental death in Ohio and several other states. Ohio has seen a spike in the number of drugaddicted babies, state data shows. In 2011, Ohio had 88 cases per 10,000 live births. That’s more than six times the rate in 2004, which was 14 per 10,000 live births. The latest program is expected to curb the costs of specialized care for the newborns by helping the mothers get drug treatment and cutting down on the babies’

AMELIA (AP) — An Ohio woman who found her teenage son’s cremated remains in a plastic shopping bag inside an urn is talking about how she’s upset with the Kentucky funeral home that handled the ashes. Nancy Bronner, of Amelia in southwestern Ohio, said she was disgusted to open her son’s urn after his death last September only to find his ashes tied up in a WalMart (NYSE:WMT) bag. “I don’t care who you are; it’s not right to put a human person’s ashes in a Wal-Mart bag,” Bronner told WCPO-TV (http:// ). the San Diego County “It is still disrespectSheriff’s Department has ful,” said Bronner, who is been interviewing his considering filing a comaccusers and will deliver its findings to the attorney general’s office for possible prosecution.

plaint with state authorities. “You don’t do that to a parent who has lost their child. You don’t do that to anyone.” Her son, T.J. Mitchell, died at age 17 of a heart condition. Bob McDaniel of McDaniel Funeral Home in Dry Ridge, Ky., said that the family had asked him to divide the ashes in four containers that didn’t seal and had no bags, so he used what he had. He said he cut the bags so they didn’t show any store name or logo. Bronner says it was recognizable as a Wal-Mart bag. Thomas Mitchell, T.J.’s father and Bronner’s exhusband, defended the

funeral home’s decision and said he still keeps his son’s ashes in the original bag he was given. “Was anything done maliciously? No,” he said. “It may have been a split second lack of judgment, but they were also looking out for our best interest because the containers we provided did not seal.” But T.J.’s mom feels differently. Bronner said she had her son’s ashes transferred into a clear plastic bag at another funeral home. She has contacted the Kentucky attorney general’s office and the Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors to file complaints.

Medicaid expansion backers eye Ohio ballot effort to take any action on Medicaid by October, but more likely by year’s end. Allison’s broad coalition of Ohio hospitals, business groups, consumer advocates and religious organizations supports Medicaid expansion, as does AARP Ohio. And they’re focused on getting state lawmakers to approve the program’s extension, Allison said. “Legislative action to authorize Medicaid expansion remains the No. 1 priority,” he said

in a phone interview. A petition to get the proposal on the ballot must clear a variety of hurdles to be successful. Supporters have to gather a certain number of valid signatures from registered voters. Once those are verified, the General Assembly has four months to act on the proposed law. If legislators pass, amend or take no action, then supplemental petitions may be circulated to get it before Ohio voters in November 2014.


violence against women. The city’s first Democratic leader in 20 years turned into a virtual no-show after allegations surfaced last month that he sexually harassed women. At a news conference, Allred displayed a farewell card that said she looked forward to seeing Filner at a deposition in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former communications director Irene McCormack Jackson — the first of nearly 20 women to identify herself as a target of the mayor’s unwanted advances. She is the only one who has sued Filner. Allred was flanked by two other Filner accusers. “I was a victim, and now I am a survivor,” said Peggy Shannon, 67. Shannon volunteers at the senior citizen information desk in the City Hall lobby and accused Filner of kissing her on the lips, repeatedly asking her on dates, and boasting of his sexual prowess. Gloria, a Democrat, said he would interview Filner’s staff and hoped to keep most in their jobs. On Thursday, he named McCormack, as she is known professionally, to be his communications director. “The days of sliding backward are over,” said Gloria, who is weighing whether to run for mayor in a Nov. 19 special election to replace Filner. The California attorney general’s office has launched a criminal investigation of Filner, and

ment for their addictions, along with additional help to prevent relapses after the babies are born. “By these women being in treatment and receiving medication-assisted therapy, we know what they’re taking,” Hurst said. “And we can appropriately treat the children for withdrawal. And that in and of itself decreases the hospital stay by about 30 percent.” State officials are using a combination of federal and Ohio dollars to pay for the pilot. They expect to save about $1.8 million from the reduction of hospital time for the infants. Hurst said most of the mothers have tenuous housing arrangements and lack a good support system for recovery. That’s why a portion of the project’s money will go toward housing vouchers for women who need short-term transitional housing as well as transportation or brief babysitting for medical and treatment appointments. Hospitals, drug treatment centers and other providers will get a chance to apply to participate in the program at the end of the year. The state will then pick two or three sites for the project. Mothers and babies will start getting help by early 2014, the administrations said.

Filner ends tumultuous tenure as San Diego mayor SAN DIEGO (AP) — Bob Filner ended his brief but tumultuous tenure as mayor Friday amid allegations that he sexually harassed women, making no public appearances on a final day that came one week after a defiant farewell speech in which the onetime civil rights activist called himself the victim of a “lynch mob.” Interim Mayor Todd Gloria said Filner’s last act as mayor was to halt a controversial remodeling of a neighborhood Jack in the Box (NYSE:JBX) restaurant. Gloria immediately overturned the decision, saying it exposed the city to litigation. The former 10-term congressman kept a low profile on last final day, ceding media attention to a mock celebration by accusers who gave him several parting gifts, including a mirror that attorney Gloria Allred said he can look at when asking who’s to blame for his resignation. Employees in the City Hall lobby said they didn’t see the 70-year-old mayor on his last day. An office receptionist had no comment. Before the scandal, Filner was true to his reputation as a workaholic. Followers adopted a Twitter hashtag — #filnereverywhere — to chronicle his nonstop pace riding a bicycle to school with children, crashing the podium at the city attorney’s news conference to denounce the speaker’s positions, and marching to protest

length of hospital stays in the intensive care unit. Babies born to mothers who are addicted to painkillers or other opiates experience neonatal abstinence syndrome. Their symptoms include drug withdrawal, respiratory complications, feeding difficulties and sometimes even seizures. The symptoms can be uncomfortable for an adult. But for newborns who likely have lowbirth weights, the nausea and dehydration can be life-threatening, said Dr. Mark Hurst, medical director for the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. Caring for the drugaddicted newborns and mothers, who are often on Medicaid, can be costly to the system. Health care expenses associated with treating babies with neonatal abstinence syndrome topped $70 million in 2011, according to the Ohio Hospital Association. There were roughly five hospital admissions per day in 2011. And the average length of a hospital stay for newborns with the syndrome is between 14 and 20 days. Expectant mothers in the state’s new program would undergo a combination of counseling and medication-assisted treat-

Church scholars say the unprecedented number of missionaries gives Mormons an opportunity to bring in a higher number of converts, and perhaps more importantly, do a better job of keeping current members active. The church reported having 14.4 million members worldwide as of January 2012. Missionaries convert about five people per mission, according to Matt Martinich, a member of the LDS church who analyzes membership and missionary numbers with the nonprofit Cumorah Foundation.

at 19, instead of 21. Church leaders and outside scholars expect the decision will lead to many more women serving missions. Rather than having to leave at age 21 — when many women are about to start careers or perhaps are contemplating marriage and starting families — Mormon women can now serve missions shortly after high school. Young Mormon men are expected, but not required to serve missions. Historically, women have faced far less pressure to serve. Men serve two years while women go for 18 months.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The wife of an American pastor serving eight years in an Iranian prison says the Tehran Court of Appeals has rejected his appeal for a reduced sentence. Pastor Saeed Abedini, whose family lives in Boise, Idaho, has been jailed in Iran since September. He was charged with attempting to undermine state security by creating a network of Christian churches in private homes. He

was tried and sentenced in January. Naghmeh Abedini says her 33-year-old husband’s faith remains strong, but he’s been suffering from internal bleeding. She says their two small children pray for their father’s release daily, and she hasn’t had the heart to tell them about the court’s ruling. This week, as the U.S. commemorates the massive 1963 civil rights march in Washington, Naghmeh Abedini is urging President Barack Obama to denounce the violation of her husband’s religious rights. She notes that the Rev.

Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Syrians steel themselves for U.S. strike WASHINGTON (AP) — Edging toward a punitive strike against Syria, President Barack Obama said Friday he is weighing “limited and narrow” action as the administration bluntly accused Bashar Assad’s government of launching a chemical weapons attack that killed at least 1,429 people — far more than previous estimates — including more than 400 children. No “boots on the ground,” Obama said, seeking to reassure Americans weary after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. With France as his only major public ally, Obama told reporters he has a strong preference for multilateral action. He added, “Frankly, part of the challenge we end up with here is a lot of people think something should be done but nobody wants to do it.” Halfway around the world, U.S. warships were in place in the Mediterranean Sea armed. They carried cruise missiles, long a first-line weapon of choice for presidents because they can find a target hundreds of miles distant without need of air cover or troops on the ground. In what appeared increasingly like the preattack endgame, U.N. personnel dispatched to Syria carried out a fourth and final day of inspection as they sought to determine precisely what happened in last week’s attack. The international contingent arranged to depart on Saturday and head to laboratories in Europe with the samples they have collected. Video said to be taken at the scene shows victims writhing in pain, twitching and exhibiting other symptoms associated with exposure to nerve agents. The videos distributed by activists to support their claims of a chemical attack were consistent with Associated Press reporting of shelling in the suburbs of Damascus at the time, though it was not known if the victims had died from a poisonous gas attack. The Syrian government said administration claims were “flagrant lies” akin to faulty Bush administration assertions before the Iraq invasion that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. A Foreign Ministry statement read on state TV said that “under the pretext of protecting the Syrian people, they are making a case for an aggression that will kill hundreds of innocent Syrian civilians.” Residents of Damascus stocked up on food and other necessities in anticipation of strikes, with no evident sign of panic. One man, 42-year-old Talal Dowayih, said: “I am not afraid from the Western threats to Syria; they created the chemical issue as a pretext for intervention, and they are trying

to hit Syria for the sake of Israel.” Obama met with his national security aides at the White House and then with diplomats from Baltic countries, saying he has not yet made a final decision on a response to the attack. But the administration did nothing to discourage the predictions that he would act — and soon. It was an impression heightened both by strongly worded remarks from Secretary of State John Kerry and the release of an unclassified intelligence assessment that cited “high confidence” that the Syrian government carried out the attack. In addition to the dead, the assessment reported that about 3,600 patients “displaying symptoms consistent with nerve agent exposure” were seen at Damascus-area hospitals after the attack. To that, Kerry added that “a senior regime official who knew about the attack confirmed that chemical weapons were used by the regime, reviewed the impact and actually was afraid they would be discovered.” He added for emphasis: “We know this.” The assessment did not explain its unexpectedly large casualty count, far in excess of an estimate from Doctors Without Borders. Not surprisingly — given the nature of the disclosure — it also did not say expressly how the United States knew what one Syrian official had allegedly said to another. Mindful of public opinion, Kerry urged Americans to read the four-page assessment for themselves. He referred to Iraq — when Bush administration assurances that weapons of mass destruction were present proved false, and a U.S. invasion led to a long, deadly war. Kerry said this time it will be different. “We will not repeat that moment,” he said. Citing an imperative to act, the nation’s top diplomat said “it is directly related to our credibility and whether countries still believe the United States when it says something. They are watching to see if Syria can get away with it because then maybe they, too, can put the world at greater risk.” While Obama was having trouble enlisting foreign support, French President Francois Hollande was an exception. The two men spoke by phone, then Hollande issued a statement saying they had “agreed that the international community cannot tolerate the use of chemical weapons, that it must hold the Syrian regime responsible and send a strong message to denounce the use of (such) arms.” The day’s events produced sharply differing responses from members of Congress — and that was just the Republicans.

TODAY’S STATEWIDE FORECAST AP Photo Supporters of Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi chant slogans during a demonstration in Dalga Village, in upper Egypt, Friday. Tens of thousands of protesters and Muslim Brotherhood supporters rallied Friday throughout Egypt against a military coup and a bloody security crackdown, though tanks and armored police vehicles barred them from converging in major squares. The sign in the foreground reads, “The Egyptian people said it strong - Morsi is my president and has legitimacy — he is coming back soon.”

CAIRO (AP) — Reeling from a fierce security crackdown, the Muslim Brotherhood brought out only scattered, small crowds Friday in its latest protests of Egypt’s military coup. While the remnants of the Brotherhood’s leadership are still able to exhibit strong coordination from underground, the arrests of thousands of its supporters and members — and the fear of more bloodshed — have weakened its ability to mobilize the streets. The day’s largest single demonstration was a little more than 10,000 people outside the presidential palace in Cairo, with dozens of gatherings of about 100 protesters or fewer in multiple sites around the capital and the provinces. It was an intentional shift in tactics from a week ago, when the group failed to rally in a single location as a show of strength. Security officials dubbed it the “butterfly plan” — a flurry of protests to distract them. Rather than have protests converge in one square and encounter force from police and angry residents, the group appeared

to purposely plan hundreds of small marches as another way of continuing demonstrations and avoiding bloodshed, according to security officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media. Protest organizers also tried a bit of subterfuge: They said a rally would take place in Sphinx Square in Cairo, but after security forces barricaded the site with barbed wire, tanks and roadblocks, only a few hundred people demonstrated nearby, and the biggest crowd converged across town at the presidential palace. Tens of thousands heeded the Brotherhood’s call nationwide for a day of “decisiveness,” in which the group urged people to “break your fear, break the coup.” They marched defiantly past tanks and armored vehicles on the streets of Cairo and other major cities. More than 1,300 people, most of them Brotherhood supporters, have been killed since President Mohammed Morsi, a longtime leader in the group, was ousted in a popularly backed coup July 3.

Iraq violence kills 14 as al-Qaida claims attacks by Arabs, Kurds and Turkomen about 200 kilometers (130 miles) north of Baghdad. Iraq is facing its deadliest wave of violence since 2008. The spike in bloodshed is raising worries the country is heading back toward the brink of civil war fueled by the country’s sectarian and ethnic divisions. Hours earlier, the alQaida affiliate in Iraq, known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, posted a message on a militant website taking responsibility for the deadly attacks that rocked the Baghdad area on Wednesday. Coordinated car bombings and other violence that day that killed at least 82 people, mostly in Shiite areas of the capital. The group claimed the

attacks were a response to the Aug. 19 execution of 17 Sunni prisoners, all but one of them convicted on terrorismrelated charges. It said tight security measures imposed by Iraqi forces failed to stop the attacks,

and the group vowed to carry out more attacks against government targets. “We will avenge the blood of our brothers,” the group said. The authenticity of the statement could not be

independently confirmed. It was posted on a website commonly used by jihadists and its style was consistent with earlier alQaida statements. The bombings were the latest in a wave of bloodshed that has swept Iraq since April, killing more than 4,000 people and worsening already strained ties between Iraq’s Sunni minority and the Shiite-led government. More than 570 people have been killed so far in August. Al-Qaida is hoping to tap into the anger of more moderate Sunnis, who began holding rallies in December against the government over what they feel is their secondclass treatment. Among their biggest grievances are the application of tough anti-terrorism mea-

sures they feel unfairly target their sect, and the treatment of Sunni detainees in Iraqi prisons. Iraq has executed 67 people so far this year, mainly for terrorismrelated charges. It put more people to death last year than any country except for China and Iran, according to Amnesty International. Human rights groups have raised questions about whether defendants receive a fair trial. Also Friday, police said gunman on a speeding motorbike opened fire on Sunni worshippers as they were heading to a mosque to perform Friday prayer in the Sunni neighborhood of Adel in western Baghdad, killing two worshippers and wounding two others.

BAGHDAD (AP) — The Iraqi branch of alQaida claimed responsibility Friday for a lethal wave of coordinated bombings in the Baghdad area earlier this week, as new attacks killed another 14 in the latest outbreak of violence to hit the country. Friday’s deadliest attack struck after nightfall in a Kurdish neighborhood in the ethnically mixed town of Tuz Khormato. Insurgents there set off a non-lethal stun bomb apparently designed to attract a crowd before detonating a real bomb that killed 12 and wounded 10, said the town’s police chief, Col. Hussein Ali Rasheed. Tuz Khormato, a frequent flashpoint for violence, sits in a band of territory contested

The price of gold touched $1,420 an ounce this week, a three-anda-half month high, as escalating tensions in the Middle East, volatile currency markets and renewed demand for jewelry in China and India pushed prices higher. Gold has rebounded 15 percent to $1,396 an ounce since sinking to $1,212, its lowest level in almost three years, on June 27. A gain of 20 percent or more would put the metal back in a bull market. Gold’s resurgence follows a rough ride this year. Gold slumped 4.8 percent in the first three months of 2013 as the outlook for the economy improved while inflation remained subdued. For many years prior to that, large investors, like hedge funds, bought the metal as a way to protect their investments against rising prices and a slumping dollar. They feared that the Federal Reserve’s stimulus program could cause prices to rise. But inflation remained subdued and that reduced the need to buy gold. Also, signs in January that the dollar was strengthening diminished the appeal of owning gold. Then in April, the bottom fell out. A proposal that Cyprus sell some of its gold reserves to support its banks rattled traders, prompting concern that Spain, Italy and other weak European economies might also sell and flood the market. Gold plunged by $140 an ounce, or nine percent, on April 15 as investors unloaded their holdings. That was the biggest oneday decline in more than 30 years. While the price of gold is still down 17 percent this year, the metal is on the rise. Here are the factors

driving its comeback: A LIT TLE INSURANCE One of the reasons people buy gold is that it offers an alternative to more traditional financial assets, says Mike McGlone, director of research at ETF Securities, a provider of commodity-based exchange-traded funds. When financial markets get jittery, investors often buy gold because it is considered one of the safest assets that can easily be converted to cash. As the stock market soared this year, rising as much as 20 percent, investors had less need to hold gold. That has changed the last four weeks. The Standard & Poor’s (NYSE:MHP) 500 index has lost 4 percent since reaching an all-time high of 1,709.67 on August 2. Traders are concerned about when and by how much the Fed will pare back on its stimulus, a major driver behind the market’s rally. Strife in Egypt and Syria has also reminded investors that it’s a dangerous world out there: wars can spread and oil prices can spike, hurting economies and stock markets. Investors want to add back a little insurance to their portfolios these days. “If we lived in a perfect world, we would not need gold,” says McGlone. “But since we don’t, we do need something that is the ultimate store of value.” Investors don’t need to buy gold bars or coins to invest in the metal. Exchange-traded funds are investments that are similar to mutual funds. Both can be bought and sold on exchanges. Some of these funds, such as ETF’s Physical Swiss Gold Shares and SPDR’s Gold Shares, allow investors to buy into trusts that invest directly in gold.

Zurich to take a look at ‘undue pressure’ on CFO GENEVA (AP) — After the apparent suicide of its chief financial officer and the sudden resignation of its chairman in response, Zurich Insurance Group has launched an investigation into their working relationship. Zurich’s acting chairman, Tom de Swaan, said Friday that the company’s board would look into the possibility of “undue pressure” placed upon Pierre Wauthier, who was found dead Monday and left a note describing his dealings with former chairman Josef Ackermann. “We were informed that such a letter exists, and we are aware of its content. And it’s correct that it relates to the relationship between Pierre Wauthier and Joe Ackermann,” de Swaan said in a conference call with investors and analysts. “These tragic events have cast a shadow over Zurich,” de Swaan said. Ackermann said he resigned abruptly on Thursday to avoid any damage to Zurich’s reputation, citing “unfounded” allegations by Wauthier’s family that he bore some responsibility for the former CFO’s death. According to a Zurich official, who has been briefed on the note by the company but spoke to The

Associated Press only on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, Wauthier wrote that he disagreed with Ackermann over how the company did its financial reporting and was being pressured by Ackermann on how the numbers should be presented. Ackermann thought that Wauthier was playing down some negative aspects of the company’s financial performance, the official said. Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger of Zurich also reported there was disagreement between Ackermann and Wauthier over how the company’s financial results should be presented in its reporting to investors. While he would not detail the note’s contents to the conference call, de Swaan clearly indicated that the probe into undue pressure was a direct result of what Wauthier wrote before his death. “The board sees it as its prime responsibility to look into the question as to whether there was undue pressure placed on our CFO,” said de Swaan, who had been vice chairman of the board until this week. “Let me be absolutely clear: We, meaning the board and the management of Zurich, take corporate culture and behavior very seriously.”

the veterans, the Eagles rallied with 22 straight secondhalf points to claim a 22-11 victory over St. John Central at Eagle Stadium — a storybook ending and new beginning wrapped up into one package. “This is the happiest I’ve ever been playing football at Troy Christian,” said Travis Sloan, the Eagles’ lone senior on the roster. “I played my freshman and sophomore years, but then we didn’t have it at all last year. This is one of the happiest moments in

Red Devils hammer Falcons TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe coach Charlie Burgbacher’s philosophy is that if you take care of business each week, all of the loftier goals — league titles, playoff berths, etc. — will take care of themselves and just be icing on the cake. Friday night, the Red Devils cooked the cake. Tippecanoe piled up 41 points before the half and kept the visiting Graham Falcons off of Tipp City Park’s scoreboard Friday night, winning its season opener in convincing fashion, 68-0. Jacob Hall had three touchdown runs, one of them for 75 yards. He also added scoring runs of 1 and 28 yards. Cameron Johnson scored twice, a 3-yard run and a 5-yard run, Sean Ford scored on a 12-yard run and Cameron Gobbs scored on a 13-yard run. Quarterback Ben Hughes also threw for two touchdowns, a 16-yarder to Matt Davis and a 31-yarder to Jarrett Wasson. And the Red Devils had a defensive score, also, as Logan Dawes recovered a fumble in the end zone.

No quit in them Over 50-plus penalty yards in the first half and a 14-3 deficit. Things were not looking good for Miami East at halftime against Milton-Union Friday night in Casstown. But the Vikings had no quit in them. The Miami East defense shut down the Milton offense in the second half, Michael Fellers nailed a 42-yard field goal with 3:03 left in the third, Alex Brewer drew East closer with a TD run late in the third — and Colton McKinney scored the go-ahead touchdown from 19 yards out with 10:58 left in the fourth. The game, however, wasn’t close to being over just then.

Hoyer leads comeback as Browns beat Bears 18-16 CHICAGO (AP) — Brian Hoyer started by connecting with Josh Gordon on a 45-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage and ended the game with a comeback. In between, things were a bit choppy. Hoyer threw for 307 yards and came on down the stretch for the Browns after Jordan Palmer dominated the first half for the Bears, leading Cleveland to an 18-16 victory over Chicago in the preseason finale on Thursday night. Hoyer was intercepted twice. But he also led the Browns (3-1) on a 76-yard touchdown drive that made it a one-point game in the fourth quarter. “I don’t care if it is the fourth preseason game of the year or the last game of the year,” he said.

“When you’re out there, you’re out there to win, it doesn’t matter who is out there, you play the game to win, you don’t just play to play.” Punter Spencer Lanning kicked a 40-yard field goal with just over three minutes left following a fumble by Harvey Unga to make it 18-16. Robbie Gould then missed a 57-yarder wide right with just over a minute left, and the Bears (2-2) lost after leading most of the way. Signed two weeks ago after third-stringer Matt Blanchard broke a knuckle on his left, non-throwing hand, Palmer made the most of his opportunity with Jay Cutler and Josh McCown sitting out.

Love tap on the wrist Johnny Manziel’s punishment beyond laughable Paul Newberry AP National Writer

Don’t blink, or you may miss Johnny Football’s suspension. If there’s any doubt the NCAA has become totally irrelevant, beyond ruling on such weighty issues as whether a former Marine who put his life on the line for his country should be allowed to play college football, it was the punishment doled out to the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. Texas A&M will have to get by without quarterback Johnny Manziel for two whole quarters in Saturday’s season opener against mighty Rice. Ohhh, the humanity. Manziel, of course, allegedly got paid for his signature by some guys in the upstanding world of sports memorabilia, and the NCAA seized the opportunity to conduct an investigation that was straight from the Barney Fife crime-fighting manual. Though, come to think of it, even ol’ Barn was allowed to carry a bullet in his shirt pocket. We’re not sure we’d go even that far with these guys. Enough of this charade. It’s time to shut down the NCAA, or at least strip it of whatever enforcement powers it supposedly has. After a series of unjust rulings over the past few years, not to mention the botched investigation of Miami over allegations that would’ve made Caligula blush, the organization has forfeited the right to be taken with any degree of seriousness. While the Hurricanes are still waiting for a ruling in their case, some two years after former booster Nevin Shapiro went public with his scandalous claims, the NCAA moved with lightning speed to give Manziel a love tap on the wrist. The ruling that came down this week, conveniently timed to coincide with the start of the season, found Manziel was guilty of an “inadvertent” violation — whatever that is — and would have to sit out the first 30 minutes of the season. Heck, that doesn’t even give him time to head to the casino or post another bit of debauchery on social media or complete his service at the Manning family’s quarterback camp, the one he skipped out on early over the summer. In all seriousness, this is not an indictment of Johnny Football. College athletes deserve to be paid for all the millions they bring in to their universities. It’s beyond ridiculous that a player would have to sneak around to sell his own signature just to bring in a few well-deserved bucks. But this much is clear: The schools supposedly governed by the NCAA need to set up a regulatory agency that has some real bite — and can rule with at least a modicum of fairness — or do away with the whole farce. We’re guessing higher education, which already sold its soul in the name of big-time college athletics, would choose the latter. At this point, we’d be fine with that. Based on the way the Manziel case was handled, we’re already there anyway. Here’s how the “investigation” went down: “Hey, Johnny Football, did you do anything wrong?” “Of course not,” he replied, rolling his eyes. “That’s good enough for us. Case closed! Now get out there and make us some more money!!” For the record, Texas A&M issued a statement saying the school and the NCAA “confirmed there is no evidence Manziel received money in exchange for autographs based on currently available information and statements by Manziel.”

thought his playing days were over. That changed when he got the call from the Bears, and now, he might have to cancel a trip to Europe next week with his wife. “We’ve been putting it off for the past couple years. And I would love to cancel that trip,” he said. But it was the Browns who finished the preseason on a winning note, with both teams resting their top players. The Bears had said they would do just that, and wide receiver Brandon Marshall wasn’t even at the stadium. He had an excused absence. Marshall also voiced frustration on Tuesday about his recovery from offseason hip surgery and missed practice on Wednesday.

He is expected to be ready for the opener against Cincinnati, which is the first game of the Marc Trestman era. The Browns didn’t play Brandon Weeden, Trent Richardson or Joe Thomas, among others. With backup quarterback Jason Campbell out with flu-like symptoms, Hoyer got the call for the Browns and completed 24 of 35 passes. His second interception — by Sherrick McManis — led to a 44-yard field goal by Gould that increased Chicago’s lead to 16-9 early in the fourth. Hoyer then led the Browns on the go-ahead touchdown drive, finishing with a 14-yard TD pass to Dan Gronkowski with just under 7 minutes left.

Buffalo seeks respect, Buckeyes chasing No. 1 COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State had a lot to play for last fall: Making people forget a year of NCAA investigations and innuendo, rebounding from the worst season in more than a century and living up to the expectations of a new coaching staff. They more than succeeded with a stunning 12-0 turnaround. Unlike those Buckeyes, however, the 2013 version is allowed to compete for a Big Ten championship and even a national title. A postseason ban is no longer in force for crimes and misdemeanors committed under the regime of deposed coach Jim Tressel. The first step is Saturday’s game against Buffalo, a rebuilding team hoping to make a good showing while the second-ranked Buckeyes are aiming to serve notice that they’re a worthy contender to break the Southeastern Conference’s seven-year stranglehold on No. 1. “Coach (Urban) Meyer came in here and he went 12-0,” safety C.J. Barnett said. “Last year we had a chip on our shoulder. We were kind of hunting, but now we’re the hunted. We’ve got the target on our backs. It’s tougher when everybody’s gunning at you.” Here are five things to watch in the opener for both teams: Hype of hope? Braxton Miller embarks on his Heisman Trophy campaign with a better handle on the offense and better mechanics when he steps into the pocket. His receivers are improved over last year. Plus, he has far more options in terms of playmakers. Even Buffalo coach Jeff Quinn, if he could, would vote for Miller. “Braxton, to me, is defi-

nitely a worthy candidate,” he said. Meyer says Miller will run less and throw more, which will keep him healthier and stronger for the stretch run. Mack Attack: The Bulls’ Khalil Mack is not just one of the best LBs in his conference, but in the country. He’s so good that he’s expected to be among the top couple of players at his position in next spring’s NFL draft. He’s also so good that Ohio State’s coaches are worried about him. “He is an extremely, extremely talented player,” Buckeyes co-offensive coordinator Tom Herman said. “He poses some matchup issues that we’ll have to gameplan for.” Mac Attack: Ohio State is 28-1 against current members of the Mid-American Conference, the lone

smudge on that record being a 12-6 setback to Akron in ‘94 — 1894, that is. It’s unlikely that the Bulls have enough weapons to keep the Buckeyes at bay, but it’s always important to note that the MAC has a history of pulling off shockers. On Sept. 20, 2003, MAC schools knocked off No. 6 Kansas Stawte, No. 9 Pittsburgh and No. 21 Alabama. That very same afternoon, Bowling Green had Ohio State on the ropes at Ohio Stadium but ended up falling 24-17 in the closest call for a Buckeyes team against an in-state rival since 1921. Youth is served: Ohio State’s offense is composed of grizzled veterans. But the defense? Not so much. Only two seniors will start on that side of the ball, Barnett and Christian Bryant at

safety. Most eyes will be on whether ends Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington can get to Bulls QB Joe Licata, and whether sophomore Joshua Perry and former five-star recruit Curtis Grant can carry the load at LB. Also, the Buckeyes will have a freshman handling the punting: 21-year-old Aussie Cameron Johnston. Oliver! Buffalo RB Branden Oliver gained 821 yards last year despite missing five games and parts of four others. If he has success, that’s not a good omen for a rebuilt Ohio State defense with eight new starters. If Oliver finds himself hemmed in a lot, then the Buckeyes will have taken a first step toward being taken seriously in the national-title picture.

Dalton leads TD drive, Bengals beat Colts 27-10 CINCINNATI (AP) — A few smooth minutes on the field left Andy Dalton in a good mood. Dalton completed his only pass and led the Bengals to a touchdown in his only drive — one that took four minutes to finish — and the Cincinnati Bengals ended the preseason with a 27-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night. The third-year quarterback wanted a crisp drive to finish the preseason. He got it. “We did what we wanted to do,” Dalton said of the seven-play drive. “We drove down and scored — had some good runs mixed in there and some conversions on passes. We did what we wanted the first offense to do.” Cincinnati (3-1) has a few decisions left before starting the season, none bigger than picking Dalton’s backup. Josh Johnson followed Dalton for the second straight game and had a

solid showing. He led the Bengals to a touchdown and a field goal in three possessions before halftime. Johnson scrambled twice for 38 yards on a touchdown drive that culminated in his 3-yard pass to Marvin Jones, showing his main advantage over John Skelton in the competition for the backup job.

Overall, Johnson was 7 of 13 for 67 yards with three sacks. “I feel good,” Johnson said. “I feel I’ve improved weekly on everything I’ve been asked to do and we’ve been able to get results on the field. We’ve been able to put scoring drives together, finish drives. “But you never know. All you can do is put your best foot forward.” Skelton, who was behind from the start of the competition to replace Bruce Gradkowski because he’d never run a West Coast offense, played the second half and was 6 of 10 for 99 yards with one touchdown drive. The Bengals played most of their starters on offense and defense for one series only. Dalton’s brief appearance ended in Giovani Bernard’s 1-yard touchdown run. The Colts (2-2) rested most of their starters, including quarterback Andrew Luck. He and Dalton joked with each other on the field before the game.

Stephens reaches 4th round at US Open for 1st time NEW YORK (AP) — With a sure-to-be-hyped rematch with Serena Williams in the offing at the U.S. Open, Sloane Stephens held up her end of the bargain. Then Stephens — and the tennis world — needed to wait several hours to find out whether Williams would, too. From the moment the women’s draw came out at Flushing Meadows, it was clear which potential fourth-round match was the most intriguing: defending champion Williams against up-and-coming talent Stephens. “It’s something I think everyone is looking forward to,” Stephens said. On a ho-hum afternoon devoid of any truly significant surprises, Stephens reached the round of 16 in New York for the first time by beating 23rdseeded Jamie Hampton 6-1, 6-3 Friday. Williams, seeking her fifth U.S. Open title, was scheduled to face 78th-ranked Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan at night, following the match between a pair of past men’s champions: Juan Martin del Potro and Lleyton Hewitt. Earlier, two other title winners, defending champion Andy Murray and top-seeded Novak Djokovic, experienced only brief lulls before staying on course for a possible showdown in the semifinals. About 40 minutes into his match, Djokovic faced two set points, but he erased those thanks to errors by his opponent, and after adjusting to

Murray dropped a set, yelled at himself after some awkward miscues, but finished well, taking the last five games of his 7-5, 6-1, 3-6, 6-1 victory over 81st-ranked Leonardo Mayer of Argentina. Becker, who beat Andre Agassi at the 2006 U.S. Open in the final match of the American’s career, “is a quality opponent, and he should have won the first

set,” Djokovic acknowledged. “I was fortunate enough to come back and win the first set, and after that, I was much more comfortable on the court.” During the day session, the only seeded man to bow out was No. 17 Kevin Anderson, a 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 loser against 2006 Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis, while all seven women’s matches were decided in two sets. Winners included 2011 French Open champion

Li Na, 2012 Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska, and 2008 U.S. Open runner-up Jelena Jankovic. The buzz already was building about Williams vs. Stephens, even before Williams faced Shvedova. “Serena is the No. 1 player in the world. She’s possibly the greatest player of all time. Sloane is Sloane. You know, she’s making her own name. She’s top 20 in the world for a reason,” Hampton said. “They’re both great players, both great competitors.” Hampton’s blase summation of a possible Williams-Stephens matchup: “I don’t really make too much of it.” She might be the only one. Williams is 32, seeded No. 1, and owns 16 major titles. Stephens is 20, seeded 15th, and already carrying the label of “Next Big Thing” in American tennis. Not only that, but Stephens surprisingly won their Australian Open quarterfinal in January, one of only four losses in 66 matches for Williams in 2013. Oh, and then there’s this: Stephens found herself in a bit of a brouhaha this year over less-than-flattering comments she made to a reporter about Williams. “That’s all old news now, and we’ve moved on. We’re fine, so I think that’s all that matters,” Stephens said Friday. Asked about her relationship with Williams, Stephens replied: “Obviously, we’re coworkers. We’re Fed Cup team-

mates. But other than that, everything else is private. It’s fine.” They’ve played twice in the past — both in January, both on hard courts, both in the quarterfinals. Williams won 6-4, 6-3 at the Brisbane International. Three weeks later, Stephens came back for a 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 victory in Melbourne. “She’s very aggressive. She stays on top you of you. Doesn’t give you any room to breathe. She’s intense. She knows what she wants to do out there. That’s why she’s No. 1,” Stephens said. Thinking back to their previous matches, Stephens added: “It was very important for me the first time to just even get out there and be like, ‘OK, it’s not as scary as I thought it would be.’ I think being able to have played her a couple times before, I’m excited to get back out there.” Stephens has reached at least the fourth round at all four Grand Slam tournaments this season, including a semifinal run at the Australian Open and a quarterfinal berth at Wimbledon, losing to the eventual champion in both. “She just likes the big matches, you know,” the 23-year-old Hampton said. “She shows up to play at the Slams, for sure.” Stephens-Hampton was the first match in Arthur Ashe Stadium between two American women younger than 24 since the Williams sisters met in the 2002 final.

n Continued from page 14 my athletic career here, right behind getting to state in basketball last year.” Troy Christian (1-0) still had some learning to do early on, though. The first half saw the Eagles put together 104 yards of offense, but on 23 rushes they lost yards seven times. That inconsistency — mixed with some costly false starts and delay-of-game calls — cut short numerous drives. The Irish were able to put together a scoring drive, capped off by a 3-yard touchdown by Devon Hennesey, in the first quarter and chalked

up a safety in the second to send the Eagles into the locker room trailing 9-0. “The kids were a little nervous. You could tell they were young and inexperienced in that first half,” Nolan said. “But they really came together as a team and made some big strides. “They hung in there, and they started to see the things they’ve been told by us coaches. They learned from that first half, and once they started hitting the creases, it was over.” Luke Dillahunt made those creases seem like craters. The sophomore rushed

for 127 yards in the second half alone, scoring on consecutive runs of 44 and 45 yards on the exact same play — a counter-sweep to the right side. The first score came at the end of the third quarter to make it a 16-9 game, then after a fumble recovery on the second play of the fourth quarter, Dillahunt was gone again to make it 22-9. “It was a great way to start off the season,” Dillahunt said. “It took a great team effort, and I’m just really happy to be a part of it. “It was just phenomenal. We got a great speech at the half, and we decided

to play together as a team. We kept our heads and made it happen.” Freshman Jacob Calvert also had 4-yard touchdown early in the third quarter that put the Eagles on the board. Dillahunt finished with 150 yards on 13 carries and added a pair of two-point conversion runs, and the Troy Christian defense forced a whopping six turnovers, recovering four fumbles and intercepting a pair of passes.

Perhaps the most versatilee football player in school history, Vaughn also twice rushed for more than 1,000 yards in a season (1,130 in 1959 and 1,117 in 1960). He also holds the record for most points scored in a game (48 in a 78-18 win over Sidney in 1960), is third on the list for points scored in a season (230 in 1960) and third for most points scored in a career (514). All of which he credits his teammates and coaches for. “To set records like that, you first have to have an outstanding offense line; you have to have an outstanding quarterback

to throw you the ball and you’ve got to have a coach that has the confidence in you to get the job done,” Vaughn said. “I had all of those things. My offense line always told me, ‘We’ll block for you — all you have to do is catch the ball.’ I loved my offensive line. I loved all my teammates. We were all very concentrated and all focused.” There may also have been another Vaughn secret to Vaughn’s success — Troy’s offense touched the ball more than most. “A lot of people don’t know this, but our coach, Lou Juillerat, went for an onside kick every time we scored,” Vaughn said.

“We never once kicked the ball deep after we scored a touchdown. If the other team recovered it, we didn’t care. We had so much confidence that our defense could stop them, we let them have the ball at the 40. We didn’t care.” Following his start-studded career at Troy, Vaughn went on to play at Iowa State University, where the accolades kept rolling in. One of the last great two-way players in college football history, Vaughn — who played running back and defensive back — was named first team All-Big 8 Conference on both offense and defense

Vaughn — along with classmate and former Trojan quarterback Tom Myers — left their names scrawled all over the Troy High School record books. While most other records have been surpassed since the two graduated in 1961, the surnames Vaughn and Myers still remain atop nearly every receiving and passing record at Troy. Vaughn still holds the top two spots for receiving yards in a season (703 in 1959 and 627 in 1960), the record for most receiving yards in a career (1,451), touchdown receptions in a game (four), touchdown

in 1963. In 1964, Vaughn earned All-Big 8 and AllAmerica honors. In 1965, he was named Iowa State Athlete of the Year. In 2005, he was inducted into Iowa State’s Hall of Fame. Following his graduation from Iowa State, Vaughn was drafted in the fifth round of the 1965 NFL draft by the Detroit Lions. Vaughn enjoyed a successful seven-year career with the Lions, earning the starting position at strong safety in 1967. Along with Lem Barney, Dick LeBeau and Mike Weger, Vaughn would help form one of the NFL’s best pass defenses during the late 1960s. He still ranks in the Lions top-10 in both kickoff and punt returns

and he intercepted nine passes in his career. In a poll published in 2003, he was voted as one of the top-100 players in Detroit Lions history. Still, though, Vaughn said he enjoys returning to his hometown when he can and looks forward to seeing his old friends and teammates at the hall of fame induction ceremonies. “It will be good to see the old guys again,” he said. “I probably won’t recognize half of them — I’m sure a lot of us have gained some weight. I want to make myself available to as many people as possible next weekend. I love telling people I rub elbows with from around the nation I’m from Troy, Ohio.”

Stenhouse claims 1st Cup pole at Atlanta HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wanted to run at the top of the track. His car owner told him to stay on the bottom. Good thing the rookie listened. Stenhouse won the first Sprint Cup pole of his career Friday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway, turning a harrowing lap of 189.688 mph on the 1.54

tri-oval. His previous best qualifying effort of a difficult first full Cup season was third at Kansas. “When we unloaded the car, we weren’t very good,” Stenhouse said. “We kept making changes, making big changes, and got it where we needed to be.” It also helped that he heeded the advice of car owner Jack Roush.

Carl Edwards, a teammate at Roush Fenway Racing, had posted the fastest time of the night running a high line before Stenhouse, one of the last drivers to qualify, pulled onto the track. “We were sitting in the trailer after practice,” Stenhouse said. “Jack asked me what line I was going to run in qualifying. Having a late draw, I

thought whoever was on the pole at the time, I would run the same line. Well, Jack didn’t want to hear that. He wanted to hear that I was going to run on the bottom. He said it makes him less nervous.” Even so, Stenhouse waited as long as possible before committing to the low line. “I was probably three-

I knew I just had to maintain it through three and four. I was able to do that.” Edwards wound up second-fastest at 189.021, giving him a starting spot on the outside of the front

row for Sunday night’s race — the next-to-last event before the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship begins. “I thought there was no way he could beat us if he ran on the bottom,” Edwards said. “I give Ricky a lot of credit for not changing his line after seeing how fast we were on top. He stuck to his guns.”

Piqua had taken a 7-0 lead when Dan Monnin ran nine yards for a score and Caleb Vallieu’s kick made it 7-0. “It felt real good,”

Monnin said after the touchdown run. But, Rogers struck back with a 92-yard kick return by Michael Moore. Piqua blocked the PAT to keep a 7-6 lead. “We just lost our contain,” Nees said. “That can’t happen. But, we have a lot of young guys on the kick coverage team. They will learn from that. We kicked to them the rest of the night and did pretty well.” It was still 7-6 when Piqua linebacker Hayden Hall laid out for an interception. “I just turned and the ball was right there,” Hall said. Piqua made Rogers pay on the next play when Monnin found Noah Lyman across the middle for a 34-yard TD pass and Vallieu’s kick made it 14-0. “It was a perfect call,” Monnin said. “And the safety bit on it just like we wanted and Noah made a nice run after the catch.” It was exactly what Nees wanted to see. “We flipped things with those two plays,” he said.

“That was huge.” The score remaining 14-6 at the half after Piqua was stopped inside the five in the final minute. “I was really surprised we didn’t get in there,” Nees said. But, it was all Indians in the second half. “The offensive line really got after it,” Monnin said. “I think everything started clicking.” Darien Tipps-Clemons scored on a 12-yard run and Trent Yeomans hauled in an 11-yard TD pass from Monnin. “I think we just settled down in the second half,” Yeomans said. “The line was doing a nice job and this was a great way to start things. Yeomans added a 41-yard TD run and Tate Honeycutt hauled in a 55-yard TD pass down the left sideline after Monnin hit him perfectly in stride. Yeomans finished with a 125 yards on 15 carries, while Monnin completed eight of 16 passes for 146 yards, “Our backs ran hard,”

Nees said. “I thought we did play much better in the second half.” In a penalty plague game, Piqua’s defense shined. Rogers had 17 penalties for 125 yards, while Piqua had 11 penalties for 110 yards. Derrick Gullett had a pick to give Piqua a short field for Yeomans TD catch and recovered a fumble in the first half, while Dom Stone blocked a punt. “We have worked so hard,” Hall said. “This is my senior year and it was huge to get started like this.” And Nees, whose team will host Kings on Friday, got exactly what he wanted to see. • Anna Routs Lehman ANNA — Anna remained perfect against county football rival Lehman, routing the Cavaliers behind the punishing running of Christian Williams Friday night at Booster Field, 40-14. The Rockets make a long road trip next

Friday night, playing at Brookville. Lehman tries to even its record next week, hosting the 0-1 Minster Wildcats. Friday’s game came down to the Cavaliers being unable to stop Anna running back Williams. When it was over, he had rushed for 310 yards on 28 carries, including 183 on 20 carries in the first half, when the Rockets rolled out to a 21-0 lead. Williams scored from eight yards out in the first quarter to open the scoring. Shaun Wenrick’s kick made it 7-0. Quarterback Josh Robinson then scored the first of his two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter, from a yard out, to make it 14-0. Following the score, the Cavaliers got a good kick return back to near midfield, and drove the ball down to the Anna 4-yard line. But on a fourth-down play, Nathan Arling of Anna sacked the quarterback for a 4-yard loss. It was a pivotal play because the Rockets responded with a quick

trip down the field to another score, thanks to Williams busting one for 57 yards to the 38. A couple plays later, Jordan Jurosic shook loose from 24 yards out to give the Rockets a 21-0 bulge at the half. Things went from bad to worse for the Cavaliers in the third quarter when starting quarterback Nick Rourke was knocked out of the game. The Rockets scored twice more in the third quarter on a 1-yard run by Williams and a 22-yard run by Robinson to make it 34-0. Lehman got on the board when Steven Monnin, Rourke’s fill-in, hit Drew Westerheide on a 13-yard scoring strike. And after recovering an onside kick, the Cavaliers scored again on a 13-yard pass from Monnin to Clay Selsor. Anna capped the scoring when Williams broke one from 57 yards away. In addition to Williams, Robinson also had a good night for the Rockets, connecting on 9-for-16 passing for 122 yards.


n Continued from page 14 points on the board. We had some penalties, a dropped TD pass, a bad pitch, we fumbled the ball. We got three on one when we should have had seven. We were driving a few times, but had a few tipped balls by receivers that ended up as interceptions. “We felt going into the game that if we were close or had the lead going into the fourth, we would have a chance. Milton is a big, strong physical team, but we felt if we could be close going into the fourth we could maybe wear them out with our conditioning. We just kept plowing away, and plowing away and that’s what happened.” The Bulldogs rode running backs Brad Stine and Chase Martens on the first drive of the game, with Marten piling up 46 yards and Brad Stine adding 25, punching it in from 12 yards out with 5:35 left in the first quarter to make it 7-0. The Vikings came right back with a little offense of their own, picking up three first downs in a row on their opening series — with Michael Fellers taking it into Bulldog’ territory with a 35-yard run.

The drive, however, would stall at the seven yard line. Quarterback Conner Hellyer’s pass would slip through the hands of a Viking receiver in the end zone, and East settled for a 24-yard field goal from Fellers. Martens would put Milton on the scoreboard again late in the second half with a 17-yard TD run. He finished the first half with 117 yards rushing on 13 carries. Martens and the rest of the Bulldog ball carriers, however, would be contained in the second half. Aside from the final drive of the game — where Martens had runs of 18 yards and 15 to get his team into East territory — Milton managed just a shade over 35 yards on the ground in the final half. On the defensive side, Joey Swafford and Kodey Wolf had interceptions in the first half. On that final drive, the Bulldogs had the ball at the Vikings’ 26-yard line with time winding down, but they were stopped on a fourth-and-two. East picked up two first downs and ran Civitas Media photso by Amanda Ullery out the clock for the vic- Miami East’s Alex Brewer (22) tries to break away from Milton-Union’s tory.
