Subler takes over Redick’s optometrist practice Colin Foster Staff Writer

NYC police make arrest in death of ‘Baby Hope’ Police announced Saturday that, after an investigation that lasted more than two decades, they had arrested the killer of a child who was nicknamed Baby Hope by detectives after her body was discovered inside a picnic cooler beside a Manhattan highway in 1991. During an interrogation early Saturday, the 4-year-old girl’s cousin, Conrado Juarez, had admitted sexually assaulting and smothering her, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. The child’s name and the circumstances of her death had been a mystery for two decades. But earlier this week, police announced that a new tip and a DNA test had allowed them to finally identify the baby’s mother, a dramatic turnaround in one of the city’s more notorious cold cases.

Wind, rain pound India as massive cyclone hits A massive, powerful cyclone packing heavy rains and destructive winds slammed into India’s eastern coastline Saturday evening, as hundreds of thousands of residents moved inland to shelters in hopes of riding out the dangerous storm. Roads were all but empty as high waves lashed the coastline of Orissa state, which will bear the brunt of Cyclone Phailin. By midafternoon, wind gusts were so strong that they could blow over grown men. Seawater pushed inland, swamping villages where many people survive as subsistence farmers in mud and thatch huts. As the cyclone swept across the Bay of Bengal toward the Indian coast, satellite images showed its spinning tails covering an area larger than France. Images appeared to show the storm making landfall early Saturday night near Gopalpur.

TROY — After 36 years, it was Tom Redick’s time to step down from his optometrist practice … it was only a matter of finding the right person to take over. Ryan Subler, 33, turned out to be that guy. “I’ve had some health

issues that came on unexpectedly, and it was obvious that I wasn’t going to be able to continue to do what I was doing,” Redick explained. “You either find a way to deal with it, and I had thought about bringing someone in, but there was really no pressure to do it, and I tried a couple times and it just wasn’t working

A local woman shares how the Franklin House has turned her life around

TROY — Less than a month ago, she was out of money, out of relatives’ homes to stay, out of options and she knew she had only had one place left to turn. When 28 year-old Nichole (her name has been changed to protect her identity) arrived on the steps of the Franklin House with her school age daughter, it was her last resort after bouncing from relatives’ couches and staying in a local motel for two weeks before her grandmother had to reluctantly stop paying for the room. “Looking back two months ago, I never would have thought I would be here,” Nichole said. After her boyfriend of seven years left her and her daughter unexpectedly, Nichole had no way to pay the rent or the bills. Dealing with the break-up, her daughter’s first year in school and figuring out how to find a job in an already competitive job market, Nichole said she simply became overwhelmed. Nichole said she admitted that she always thought her family would be there to help her in her situation. “I thought I had family, but I kept going from relative’s house to relative’s house and crashing on couches and that’s no way to live or for my daughter to live,” Nichole said. “Nothing was going right and I would just sit and Anthony Weber | Troy Daily News cry — I didn’t know what Case manager Addie Ratcliff discusses the progress made regarding a woman who wished to to do or where to go.” remain unidentified while staying at The Franklin House, operated by the nonprofit Family Abuse • See HOPE on page A2 Shelter of Miami County.

Lending a helping hand Miami County shelters are in need of donations for its shelters Melanie Yingst Staff Writer

MIAMI COUNTY — Getting people back to work and on the path of independence takes hours of work and dedication from case workers with the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County as well as the St. Patrick Catholic Church’s St. Joseph House. At this time, Miami County shelters and outreach centers are in need of donations before the winter months where the homeless shelters’ population is expected to peak. According to Barbara Holman, executive director of the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County, the community can help in a variety of ways. “We are always in need of household items to help individuals move into their newly acquired housing,” Holman said. “Often, by the time they get to our shelter, they have lost everything. We are also always in need of household cleaning and hygiene products, paper products, warm socks, towels and pillows.” According to Holman, since January 2013, the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County has provided 7,247 bed-nights of shelter to homeless persons and victims of domestic violence. A bednight means one person spending one night in the shelter. “While residing in our shelters they are provided with three meals, laundry facilities, showers and a bed to sleep in,” Holman said. “All persons residing in our shelter are also provided with a case manager to help them individually towards finding employment, obtaining benefits, arranging daycare and transportation. • See SHELTER on page A2

Chase leads to arrest Mike Ullery

TROY – A Miami County Sheriff’s Office grant allowing additional deputies to provide traffic enforcement paid dividends on Saturday evening. A deputy providing traffic blitz enforcement spotted a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Piqua-Troy Road around 5 p.m. When he attempted to make a traffic stop, the car, a silver Chevrolet, attempted to flee, southbound on Piqua-Troy Road. As the chase approached the Troy corporation limits, speeds exceeded 100 miles per hour. The vehicle then made a left turn onto Stoneyridge Avenue but speeds remained around 80 miles per hour. As Troy police joined the pursuit, contact with the suspect vehicle was momentarily lost but witnesses quickly informed officers where the vehicle had parked. The suspect ran into an

Deputies and Troy officers stood by for more than two hours while a search warrant was obtained to enter the apartment. Around 8:30 p.m., officers made one more attempt to allow the suspect to open the door. When he refused, entry was made through the rear door. Inside, officers found Marquis Purter, 27, of Dayton. While searching Purter, items relating to drug paraphernalia were found on his person. Lt.

Shelter From page A1 “We also have a limited amount of funding to help shelter residents pay first months rents and housing and utility deposits to help them obtain housing quicker and free up shelter bed space.”

Dick Steienman said the St. Joseph’s House, a low-income boarding house for men, is in need of blankets, sheets, pillows and pillow cases for the cold-shelter house in Troy. Steinemen also said donations

of food for the food pantry is always needed. Steineman said he has had to turn away those in need and refers them to find shelter in Dayton when the St. Joseph’s house is full.

85 percent move into permanent housing with a plan to be able to maintain it financially. “The fastest growing population we are serving right now are children, often in single, female-headed homes,” Holman said. Holman said the need ranges from toothbrushes and toothpaste to beds and furniture. “We are always in need of household items to help individuals move into their newly acquired housing,” Holman said. “Homelessness is a difficult any time of the year, but it is especially hard during the winter. The Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County has partnered with New Path Ministries in Tipp City who will haul large pieces of furniture to be donated and then used by those who are moving out of the shelter.

“This is huge, because before that ministry was available people often went without,” she said. Individuals and families exiting our shelter can obtain assistance with furniture. Anyone who has furniture to donate can call (937) 669-1213 to make arrangements with New Path Ministries. Pick ups are available but must be arranged ahead of time. “Beds and dressers are huge need, however individuals should be encouraged to call New Path for a list of needs,” Holman said. For more information to help both agencies, call St. Joseph’s House at 335-5895. To make a donation to the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County, call 339-6761.

From page A1 Nichole said once her grandmother stopped funding the motel rooms, she finally got the push she needed to seek help from the Franklin House. “I put it off for weeks and weeks,” she said. “It’s a good thing I came in because this place is safe, secure. Me and my daughter deserved that sense of security to get back on track.” And Nichole is not alone and her story is just many of those just like her, abandoned or abused, without a place to go and no where to turn. According to Barbara Holman, executive director of the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County, the need is great for women and children and the shelter has been filling every one of the shelter’s beds. “We’ve just have had a lot of people requesting assistance at this time,” Holman said. Holman also said the increase of domestic violence has been on the rise as well. “We have had some really severe cases of domestic violence in the last two months,” Holman said. Each person is assigned a case worker who work with them as court advocates as well as providing services such as employment, benefits and getting them back on their feet. Holman said the increase of domestic violence victims is on the rise. “We helped 181 victims so far this year in Miami County,” Holman said. “One out of three who come to the shelter are victims of domestic violence.” Another alarming trend is the number of children who are being housed in the shelters. At this date, 14 children call the Franklin House their home.

“When the weather turns colder, they can no longer stay in their cars,” Steineman said. Steineman said the conditions of the urban shelters found in Dayton are less than desirable where the homeless sleep on mats in large halls. “We get two to three calls a day with people needing a place to go.” Holman also sees the need for shelter increase in the cold, harsh winter months. “Utility costs are higher, employment opportunities slow down and not having a vehicle causes homeless individuals to have to walk in extremely harsh weather,” she said. Holman said finding proper employment for their population can be a challenge. According to Holman, currently, 62 percent of people exiting the shelters are employed when they leave and

One of those children is Nichole’s daughter. “It was a pride thing,” Nichole said which kept her from utilizing the shelter’s services at first. “I wanted more for my daughter.” Nichole was assigned Addie Ratcliff, a case worker for the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County for more than eight years. With Raticliff’s help, Nichole has found employment with a local corporation in its packaging department and is now on her way to signing a lease for her own apartment — complete with a bedroom for her daughter. “I’m so excited to get a job,” Nichole said. “I was up for anything, just something under my belt. I’m so excited to sign the lease of our new apartment. I feel so good right now.” Ratcliff said once the job process is complete, she’ll help Nichole secure day care for her daughter and even offered to watch her daughter while Nichole signs the lease for her housing. “The advocates … they just really pull for you,” Nichole said. “My daughter said to me the other day, ‘Mommy, I’m ready to have my own room.’ Trust me, so am I.” With a smile and bubbling excitement, Nichole said she feels confident in her future. “It’s life changing,” said Nichole about her new job. “I feel like a weight has been lifted. It came at the right time.” Ratcliff also beams with pride and excitement for Nichole. “If she’s happy, I’m happy,” Ratcliff said. “I always put myself in their shoes, and the children, too. One thing you’ll find here is gratitude and everybody here helps each other. It’s a great thing to see and be a part of.”

tice over to somebody that had the same philosophy.” Subler is a 1996 graduate of Versailles High School. He, like Redick, is a graduate of Ohio State University. Subler finished with grad school at OSU in 2006, and since then he has worked in Toledo, Michigan and Florence, Ky. He had been going back-and-forth between Kentucky and Troy from Feb. 1 until June 1, while Redick, 63, was still seeing patients. Subler is now settled down in Troy living with his wife and daughter.

“I (have) loved it,” said Subler about living in Troy. “It’s surprising that there is actually a fair amount of people my age from Versailles in Troy. I’ve probably got six friends that I used to run around with high school that are living within the township of Troy. Everybody is so nice. What I have noticed, and I’ve lived in three or four different spots, Toledo, Monroe, Mich., Dayton, Columbus, most people who come in here are actually interested in how I’m doing and how I’m transitioning. It’s like they take a source of pride in making sure that I assimilate well into the community.” Redick, who served on Troy City Council from 1988 to 1998, is a Spencerville High School graduate. He was looking at Sidney, Piqua and Troy when he was thinking about starting his practice in 1977 — and in the end, Troy was just a step above the rest. “We came over on a Saturday just to drive around, and there had been about four to five inches of snow fall the night before,” Redick recalled. “We were getting stuck in Piqua and Sidney just driving through the city streets. We came to Troy and all the streets were plowed the Saturday morning after the storm, I mean you could drive anywhere. And I thought you know what, this place is on the ball. “As it turned out, it was a good choice.” Redick launched his practice on S. Market St. in 1977, before moving to 1001 S. Dorset Rd. in 1991, which is where it still stands today. Subler EyeCare is now open. To set up an appointment, call the office at (937) 339-7446.

Star-Ledger, New Jersey, N.J., on AT&T takes the lead on texting: The world’s largest telecommunications company has launched a massive public service campaign to tell people not to use its own products — not behind the wheel, anyway. And somehow, it feels less selfserving than a cigarette company warning about the dangers of smoking, a liquor company telling you not to drink and drive or a Bushmaster manufacturer preaching about gun safety. After all, this isn’t an inherently dangerous product. This is about a total misuse of phones, a relatively new phenomenon. A decade ago, who envisioned sending a text message at 70 mph on the Garden State Parkway? Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s chairman and chief executive, said in an interview a few years ago that someone close to him caused an accident while texting. The smartphone “is a product we sell and it’s being used inappropriately,” he told the New York Times. And to make that clear, his company has enlisted the aid of its fiercest rivals, Sprint (NYSE:S) (NYSE:FON) , T-Mobile and Verizon (NYSE:VZC) (NYSE:VZ) , which together have spent millions on co-branded ads and public events since 2010, to warn against texting while driving. AT&T even got the legendary German filmmaker Werner Herzog to direct a series of short films on the dangers. As a result, the number of people who had sworn off texting and driving has risen from 2.5 million to more than 3 million nationwide. Many did so after hearing the publicized stories of accident victims who were texting — such as a young woman trapped screaming inside her burning car for 23 minutes, in a harrowing video recorded on a police cruiser’s dash cam.

The Australian on the insufferable Karzai: It would be hard to imagine a more galling expression of ingratitude than Afghan President Hamid

Karzai’s assertion in a BBC interview that NATO forces - which include our Diggers - have brought only suffering and loss of life to his country, and no gains in terms of security. Not a word from him, of course, about the 3500 NATO soldiers who have been killed over the past 12 years, their lives sacrificed in the cause of propping up his government and defending Afghanistan against the obscurantist Taliban, or of the thousands more wounded or permanently maimed. In specifically Australian terms, too, no word about the 40 valiant soldiers who have died or the hundreds wounded, or of the $7.5 billion that fighting there has cost our country, as well as the $1bn in civilian funds we have provided and the $200 million a year we are now committed to giving Kabul. Instead, more invective. Karzai used the interview to make the fatuous suggestion NATO was colluding with the Taliban to justify an ongoing military presence after the scheduled 2014 pull-out of international forces. Karzai owes his position entirely to the 2001 US-led invasion that expelled the Taliban from Kabul. Without the NATO coalition. it is unlikely Karzai and his corrupt regime would have survived for long. Yet six months from the end of his presidency, with the pull-out imminent, he articulates a position that will cause outrage and make many wonder about the grim sacrifices made in the cause of helping Afghanistan. It is nonsense to aver, as Karzai does, that NATO’s efforts have been a waste of time and brought nothing but death and misery. His cynical, self-serving motive is clear: survival. He is trying to cozy up to the Taliban ahead of the NATO withdrawal, even talking warmly about their return to Kabul and insisting it will not undermine progress; his insulting denigration of NATO’s efforts is unforgivable. The achievements in Afghanistan of our Diggers and coalition forces drawn from across the world have been magnificent. Their sacrifices have not been in vain. They have improved the lives of millions of Afghans - especially women and children - and helped defend the world against murderous Islamic terrorism.

The Obamacare Rollout Train Wreck

Nancy Pelosi infamously said that we had to pass Obamacare to find out what’s in it. The then-House speaker erroneously assumed, evidently, that people would be able to get onto the government-run exchanges created by the law. So far the law’s implementation has been as ugly as its passage. The rollout of Obamacare has been so disastrous that even “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart was plainly mystified and unconvinced when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius came on his show the other day to offer reassurances. Judging by the haphazard beginning — error messages have been the norm, and the federal website has had to be taken offline several times — you’d guess that this was a backburner project for the Obama administration, or the start date for the exchanges had been sprung on it a few weeks ago. Of course, it is the president’s most cherished initiative, and his team has had more than three years to get the exchanges up and running. Imagine the chaos if this were something the adminis-

The more fundamental question is whether the larger project is sustainable when the exchanges need young and healthy people to sign up, at the same time they will have to pay sharply more under Obamacare. The San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News quoted one Cindy Vinson, an Obamacare supporter, who was disconcerted to learn that she will have to pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy. “Of course, I want people to have health care,” she said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.” She might not have realized it because the president of the United States never mentions it. In all his speeches about Obamacare, he never quite gets around to the part about some premiums going up, which for people forced to pay more will probably be the most salient feature of the law. But hey, what possibly could go wrong?

Wind, rain pound India as massive cyclone hits

BEHRAMPUR, India (AP) — A massive, powerful cyclone packing heavy rains and destructive winds slammed into India’s eastern coastline Saturday evening, as hundreds of thousands of residents moved inland to shelters in hopes of riding out the dangerous storm. Roads were all but empty as high waves lashed the coastline of Orissa state, which will bear the brunt of Cyclone Phailin. By midafternoon, wind gusts were so strong that they could blow over grown men. Seawater pushed inland, swamping villages where many people survive as subsistence farmers in mud and thatch huts. As the cyclone swept across the Bay of Bengal toward the Indian coast, satellite images showed its spinning tails covering an area larger than France. Images appeared to show the storm making landfall early Saturday night near Gopalpur. With some of the world’s warmest waters, the Indian Ocean is considered a cyclone hot spot, and some of the deadliest storms in recent history have come through the Bay of Bengal, including a 1999 cyclone that also hit Orissa and killed 10,000 people. Officials said early reports of deaths from Phailin won’t become clear until after daybreak Sunday. In Behrampur, a town about 10 kilometers (7 miles) inland from where the eye of the storm

hit, the sky blackened quickly around the time of landfall, with heavy winds and rains pelting the empty streets. Window panes shook and shattered against the wind. Outside, objects could be heard smashing into walls. “My parents have been calling me regularly … they are worried,” said Hemant Pati, 27, who was holed up in a Behrampur hotel with 15 other people from the coastal town hit first by the storm. The hotel manager said he would bar the doors against anyone trying to enter, saying there would be food, water and electricity from generators only for guests of the Hotel Jyoti Residency. “Nobody can come inside, and nobody can go out,” Shaik Nisaruddin said. Estimates of the storm’s power had dropped slightly, with the U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii showing maximum sustained winds of about 222 kilometers per hour (138 miles per hour), with gusts up to 268 kph (167 mph). The storm, though, remained exceedingly strong and dangerous. A few hours before it hit land, the eye of the storm collapsed, spreading the hurricane force winds out over a larger area and giving it a “bigger damage footprint,” said Jeff Masters, meteorology director at the U.S.-based private Weather Underground. “It’s probably a bad thing it was

Those who lost a curb lawn tree to the deadly emerald ash borer disease can now get their tree replaced sooner than later. Jeremy Drake, city of Troy park supintendent and acting city forester, said since the park department is having to cut down so many trees due to the disease, staff is taking an active approach to getting them replaced. With more than 300 trees having already or planned to come down, Drake said the department simply doesn’t have the budget to replace that many trees immediately. He said 160 trees were cut down in winter 2012 and 150 more are scheduled to be taken down this year. However, those homeowners that would rather replace their tree quickly, instead of being on a list for replacement, can still have city staff help.

He also said coasts would not be alone in suffering heavy damage. “This is a remarkably strong storm.

A storm surge is the big killer in such storms, though heavy rains are likely to compound the destruction. The Indian government said some 12 million people would be affected by the storm, including millions living far from the coast.

Richard C. Stoltz, age 86, of Troy, Ohio passed away at his son’s residence in Lascassas, Tennessee on Saturday, October 12, 2013. He was born on January 18, 1927 to the late Harold and Mildred (Barnett) Stoltz. Richard was married in 1946 to the late Barbara J. (Strobridge) Stoltz who passed away on August 23, 2012. Richard is survived by his daughter, Linda Williamson of Troy, Ohio and his son and daughterin-law, Larry and Tamara Stoltz of Lascassas, Tennessee; six grandchildren, Susan Taylor, Jennifer August, Heather York, Shawn Stoltz, Leslie Walton and Bobbi Jo Stoltz; fourteen greatgrandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents and spouse, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Emerson,

Drake said the “Adopt a Tree” program is available to Troy residents during October and November for property owners who wish to have a tree planted in a curb lawn. Property owners interested in this program can purchase the tree at a local tree nursery of their choice. “We’d would have liked to do onefor-one. Put back as many as we took out. But they started dieing so quickly, we just couldn’t,” Drake said. “Without the Adopt a Tree program, it could be quite a long time before any of the trees can be replaced.” Drake said the program “officially unofficially” came to be in 2010 when a street of Westbrook residents who had to have their trees removed because of the emerald ash borer disease asked for the city’s help. Drake said they asked the park department if they purchased the trees themselves, if the city staff could help plant them and staff agreed. “It’s a win-win situation for the

residents and city,” he said. The park department will provide assistance in selecting a tree species, and will work with the property owner regarding tree location related to the presence of underground or overhead utilities, driveway approaches, intersections and stop signs. “We can help pick the right tree for the right sight,” he said. Several trees, including the silver maple, which is notorious for raising sidewalks, and the sweet gum tree, are trees Drake said he would like residents to stay away from for lawn curb lawn trees. The park department will then pick up and plant the tree for the property owner. Drake said while he suggests residents purchase their tree locally and support the Troy community, trees can be picked up from other nurseries, both inside and outside of Miami County. Drake said Sharon

Cheney of Cheney’s Nursery in Troy is extremely knowledgeable about trees, and also would be helpful in the process. The park department also will assist the property owner with advice as to the watering schedule and care of a newly planted curb lawn tree. “When planting a new tree, homeowners have to commit to three years of watering,” Drake said. “A new tree simply won’t survive without proper watering.” Drake said he is either personally on-site during the planting or will make a visit with the homeowner soon thereafter to check on the tree and help the homeowner with a successful planting. Property owners interested in this program are asked to contact the park department at (937) 3354612 before selecting a tree.

The parliament passed the law virtually at gunpoint, highlighting the challenges facing Libya as it tries to transition to democracy.

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — The leader of Libya’s Muslim Brotherhood political party said Saturday that the country’s prime minister — who was briefly abducted by militia members earlier this week — has failed and needs to be replaced.

Simmering tensions in Libya were enflamed by an Oct. 5 raid by U.S. special forces that snatched a Libyan al-Qaida suspect known as Abu Anas al-Libi off the streets of Tripoli and whisked him off to custody in a U.S. warship. “This was a blatant violation to the national sovereignty,” Sawan said.

NYC police make arrest in death of ‘Baby Hope’

By the Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Police announced Saturday that, after an investigation that lasted more than two decades, they had arrested the killer of a child who was nicknamed Baby Hope by detectives after her body was discovered inside a picnic cooler beside a Manhattan highway in 1991. During an interrogation early Saturday, the 4-year-old girl’s cousin, Conrado Juarez, had admitted sexually assaulting and smothering her, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. The child’s name and the circumstances of her death had been a mystery for two decades. But earlier this week, police announced that a new tip and a DNA test had allowed them to finally identify the baby’s mother, a dramatic turnaround in one of the city’s more notorious cold cases. Now they are also revealing the slain girl’s name: Anjelica Castillo. It wasn’t clear whether Juarez, 52, had a lawyer. Police said he lived in the Bronx, but that the family had been living in Queens at the time of the killing. They also said Juarez claimed that a relative helped him dispose of the child’s body. Anjelica’s naked,

People in Ohio, Michigan and 15 other states found themselves unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure. “While the electronic benefits system is now up and running, beneficiaries in the 17 affected states continue to experience connectivity issues to access their benefits. Technical staff is addressing the issue and expect the system to be restored soon,” Xerox spokeswoman Jennifer Wasmer said in an emailed statement. “Beneficiaries requiring access to their benefits can work with their local retailers who can activate an emergency voucher system where available. We appreciate our clients’ patience while we work through this outage as quickly as possible.” U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Courtney Rowe underscored that the outage is not related to the government shutdown. Shoppers left carts of groceries behind at a packed Market Basket grocery store in Biddeford, Maine, because they couldn’t get their benefits, said fellow shopper Barbara Colman, of Saco, Maine. The manager put up a sign saying the EBT system was not in use. Colman, who receives the benefits, called an 800 telephone line for the pro-


This July 23, 2013 file photo shows a poster soliciting information regarding an unidentified body near the site where the body was found in New York. Police in New York City said Saturday that they had arrested the killer of a child who was nicknamed Baby Hope by detectives after her body was discovered inside a picnic cooler beside a Manhattan highway in 1991.

malnourished corpse was discovered on July 23, 1991, beside the Henry Hudson Parkway. Detectives thought she might have been suffocated but had few other clues as to what happened. The case became an obsession for some investigators. Hundreds of people attended a funeral for the unknown girl

in 1993. Her body was exhumed for DNA testing in 2007, and then again in 2011. In July, detectives tried another round of publicity on the 22nd anniversary of the discovery. They canvassed the neighborhood where her body was found, hung fliers, circulated sketches of the girl and a photograph of the cooler

and announced a $12,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Former detective Jerry Giorgio, who had the case from 1991 until his retirement over the summer, said he remained confident the case could be solved. “You know that expression ‘I’m on cloud nine’?” Giorgia said Saturday. “Well I’m on cloud nine.”

Food stamp debit cards not working in many states gram and it said the system was down due to maintenance, she said. “That’s a problem. There are a lot of families who are not going to be able to feed children because the system is being maintenanced,” Colman said. She planned to reach out to local officials. “You don’t want children going hungry tonight because of stupidity,” she said. Colman said the store manager promised her that he would honor the day’s store flyer discounts next week. Ohio’s cash and food assistance card payment systems went down at 11 a.m., said Benjamin Johnson, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Ohio’s cash system has been fixed, but he said that its electronic benefits transfer card system is still down. Johnson said Xerox is notifying retailers to revert to the manual system, meaning customers can spend up to $50 until the system is back online. Recipients of the state’s supplemental nutrition assistance program, or SNAP, should call the 800 number on the back of their card, and Xerox will guide them through the purchase process. Illinois residents began reporting problems with their cards — known as LINK in that state — on Saturday morning, said Januari Smith, spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Human Services.

Congress lumbers while threatened default looms for Congress to raise the $16.7 trillion debt limit. Lawmakers in both parties said they were watching for the reaction to the political uncertainty by the financial markets when they reopen after the weekend. President Barack Obama met with Senate Democratic leaders at the White House after accusing Republicans of practicing the politics of extortion. “Manufacturing crises to extract massive concessions isn’t how our democracy works, and we have to stop it,” he said in his weekly radio and Internet address. Ironically, though, House Republicans who triggered the shutdown with tea party-driven demands to eradicate Obama’s health law conceded that they had temporarily been reduced to virtual bystander status.

“The Senate needs to hold tough,” Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., quoted Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, as telling the GOP rank and file in a private meeting. “The president now isn’t negotiating with us.” The effects of the partial government shutdown varied widely, and in some cases, states and outsiders were stepping in. Officials said the Statue of Liberty would reopen on Sunday after New York agreed to pick up the $61,600 daily tab for running the site. South Dakota and corporate donors did the same for Mount Rushmore, beginning on Monday at a cost of $15,200 a day. One day after talks between the White House and House Republicans fizzled, the focus turned

to the Senate. There, a meeting of Reid, GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and two other lawmakers produced no immediate sign of progress. Later, Reid and his top lieutenants — Sens. Chuck Schumer, Patty Murray and Richard Durbin — spent more than an hour at the White House with Obama and senior White House aides, including Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough. The leaders left without speaking and the White House offered no summary of the meeting. The president’s party rejected a stab at compromise led by GOP Maine Sen. Susan Collins, while Republicans blocked the advance of a no-strings attached measure the Democrats drafted to let

the Treasury resume normal borrowing. The party line vote was 53-45, seven short of the 60 required. In disagreement was a pair of issues, both important and also emblematic of a broader, unyielding dispute between the political parties over spending, taxes and deficits. Lew has said that without legislation to raise the nation’s $16.7 trillion debt limit, default was possible any day, and with it, a calamitous impact on the economy. A separate measure was needed to reopen the government fully after 12 days of a partial shutdown that has resulted in furloughs for 350,000 federal workers and that administration officials warn could spread hardship if it remains in effect.

Politicians agreed passage of both was essential. But Republicans demanded concessions that Democrats were unwilling to give — unless they could get something in return. Officials in both parties said that Democrats had raised the possibility with Republicans of a long-term spending bill that included deficit savings that could replace some or all of the across-the-board spending cuts that began taking effect at the beginning of the year. The political calculations were evident. Polls show all portions of the electorate except tea party supporters are increasingly displeased, and Republicans are bearing the brunt of their unhappiness. “Perhaps he sees this as the best opportunity for him to win the House in 2014,” Fleming said of the president. “It’s very clear to us he does not now, and never had, any intentions of negotiating.” Reid was savage. Republicans had begun seeking concessions on health care, he said, and now their No. 1 issue is “to divert attention from the fools they’ve made of themselves on Obamacare.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans and Democrats in Congress lumbered through a day of political maneuvering Saturday while a threatened default by the Treasury crept uncomfortably closer and a partial government shutdown neared the end of its second week. “We haven’t done anything yet” by way of compromise, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said after Senate leaders took control of efforts to end the impasse, although he and other Democrats said repeatedly there was reason for optimism. Across the Capitol, tea party caucus Republican Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana said there was “definitely a chance that we’re going to go past the deadline” that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has set

What was it, in the 80s? It sure felt like the 80s.” “It was really tough out there because of the heat,” said the senior Nosker. “But we still ran really well in spite of the temperature. Getting third and fifth? That’s great.”

SIDNEY — As a reporter worked with an assistant coach to figure out which of the North Division schools finished behind the Trojans, Troy girls cross country coach Kevin Alexander interjected. “They all were,” he said. Well, they were probably looking for directly behind in second place … but Alexander wasn’t lying, either. Four Trojans finished in the top 10 of the division standings as Troy easily ran away with another North title at the Greater Western Ohio Conference Championships Saturday at Sidney High School with 30 points — 25 ahead of the next-closest finisher. Which turned out to be Greenville (55). Butler was third (57), Sidney was fourth (98) and Piqua was fifth (133). In the overall standings, Troy Troy senior Katie-Grace Sawka leads a pack of Trojans Saturday during the was sixth (165). Centerville won GWOC Championships at Sidney High School. (41), Springboro was second (46) and Beavercreek was third (80). And the Trojans did it without running their best races, too. “A lot of the girls had flat races today,” Alexander said. “But they still managed to give the best effort they could. We won the North today without Troy’s Rachel peaking. Davidson runs “That’s been our goal since in front of summer camp, to win the North. Beavercreek’s We knew Centerville, Springboro Cami Baird and Beavercreek would run away Saturday durwith the overall. They’re the No. ing the GWOC 2, 3 and 4 teams in the state. We Championships just wanted to compete as best at Sidney High we could.” School.

Murray second at state Devils 5th as a team Staff Reports

C O LU M BU S — Entering the day one stroke behind the leader, Lindsey Murray didn’t feel like playing it safe. A n d while the chances she took didn’t pay off, they d i d n ’ t Murray cost her either. The Tippecanoe senior shot a 77 in the final round of the Division II state girls golf tournament Saturday at Ohio State University’s Gray Course, ending up with a two-day total of 70-77—147 and finishing as the individual state runner-up. Kansas Lakota’s Makayla Dull won with 69-73—142. As a team, the Red Devils also held their position from the first day, finishing fifth by shooting 353-358—711. Gates Mills Hawken won with 339-329—668. “As far as the team goes, I was not disappointed with the way we played,” Tippecanoe coach Scott Murray said. “Most of these girls had very little golf experience coming into high school this year. They still needed to learn things like how to maneuver the ball in the air in various situations — which comes with playing a lot of rounds.” Tori Merrick finished with 89-95—184, Erika Brownlee shot 93-92—185, Sammie Rowland shot 101-94— 195 and Ally Chitwood shot 101-100—201. • See DEVILS on page 10

Vikings, Bulldogs sweep 1st-round matches Staff Reports

BROOKVILLE — Miami East probably didn’t need to face Dunbar in the opening round of the Division III sectional tournament last year on its way to a second straight state championship. Entering the sectional as a No. 2 seed this season, the Vikings probably didn’t need to face No. 13 Northridge in the first round at Brookville, either. But Miami East volleyball coach John Cash doesn’t take any chances — and his Vikings didn’t take any prisoners Saturday in a 25-1, 25-6, 25-4 rout. “It was good to get in the gym and get acclimated,” Cash said. “It’s a little darker gym, there’s a net system that goes all the way up to the ceiling — there’s some stuff to get used to in there. That’s why we play the first round. We could’ve taken a bye, but we didn’t. We just treat

it like any other game at this point in the year.” It was also a chance for the Vikings to work on perfecting their offense — which only made 11 errors in the entire match. “They didn’t earn a point. All of theirs were errors,” Cash said. “To have 86 points and only make 11 errors, that’s not bad. “We got everyone some playoff experience in a different kind of environment. Everything worked out pretty well.” Kara Nuss led the Vikings with 10 kills, Ashley Current had six kills, a dig and 11 assists, Trina Current had four kills, three aces and a block, Allison Morrett had four kills, Sam Cash had three kills, five aces, a dig and 15 assists, Emma Monnin had three kills, Angie Mack had two kills, eight aces and a dig, Kati Runner had two kills and five assists, Lindsey Black had a kill and an ace, Marley Roberts had three aces and Anna Kiesewetter

had an ace. Miami East faces No. 14 Northeastern at 6 p.m. Thursday. Milton-Union 3, Miss. Valley 0 BROOKVILLE — After falling behind 10-5 in the opening set to No. 9 seed Mississinawa Valley, Milton-Union coach Bill Ginn called a timeout to discuss matters with his Bulldogs. “I reminded them that we had a match today, and that they were expected in it,” Ginn said with a laugh. Whatever he said worked as the seventh-seeded Bulldogs rallied to win the game and finished off a 3-0 sweep of the Blackhawks, winning 25-18, 25-8, 25-17 to advance past the first round in the Division III sectional tournament Saturday at Brookville High School. And he didn’t need to call any more timeouts the rest of the way, as the Bulldogs took care of business. Kinsey

Douglas led the way with 13 kills, Katlyn Douglas had eight and Courtney Wion and Brianna Bull each had seven. Christine Heisey had 30 assists on the day. “I thought our outsides, Courtney and Briana, played well offensively today,” Ginn said. “And we always rely on Christine to come through for us, and she always does.” Milton-Union faces No. 8 West Liberty-Salem, which defeated No. 10 Arcanum, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Lehman 3, Covington 0 TROY — The No. 3 seed Lehman Cavaliers began its run in the Division IV sectional tournament Saturday with a sweep of No. 23 Covington, winning 25-12, 25-12, 25-14 at the Trojan Activities Center. Lehman will face No. 25 Troy Christian at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Troy High School.

Trojans playing for pride Troy looks to finish sour season on a high note BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor TROY — It wasn’t supposed to go like this. Back in August, when everyone was undefeated and all was bright and sunny, the Troy football team was brimming with optimism heading into the 2013 season. Long gone were the one-score losses and the Friday nights in which the Trojans simply couldn’t put any offense together. Now, seven weeks into the season, Troy is 2-5, 0-2 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference. Its playoff hopes are gone and its hopes for the first league title since 2000 have all but vanished into thin air. With just three games remaining, the Trojans are essentially playing for pride. What happened? Injuries happened. Turnovers happened. Lack of depth and experience happened. The Trojans found their offense, but struggled on defense. The frustrating losses — Troy is probably less than a dozen plays away from having four or five wins this season — kept mounting. And it doesn’t get any easier. This week, the Trojans travel to TrotwoodMadison, the 2011 Division II state champion and the 2012 Division II state runner-up. First, however, some final notes from Butler’s 33-28 win over Troy Friday: • Player of the Game Troy tailback Miles Hibbler carried the ball 21 times for 219 yards and touchdown runs of 73, 52 and 51 yards. With his first carry of the game, Hibbler became the 41st running back in Troy High School history to rush for 1,000 yards or more in a season. With Troy already at five losses, however, he also will be just the third back in school history to rush for 1,000 yards and still finish without a winning record. In 2006, Dustin Messer rushed for 1,000 yards on a 5-5 Troy team, while in 1968, current Troy assistant coach Tom Massie rushed for 1,000 yards on a 2-8 Troy team. • Unsung Hero of the Game Perhaps because Troy’s defense has struggled so


Troy’s Marco Anverse make a gesture after recording a quarterback sack Friday against Butler. much this year, the individual stars have gotten lots in the shuffle. Against Butler, junior defensive end Marco Anverse piled up huge stats yet again. Unofficially, Anverse finished with double-digit tackles, four tackles for loss and a quarterback sack. • Play of the Game Unfortunately for the Trojans, one of the biggest plays of the game wasn’t a positive one. Late in the first half, Troy had just gone up 2014 on Hibbler’s 52-yard touchdown run. On the ensuing kickoff, Butler fumbled the ball and Troy’s Justice Rees appeared to have pounced on it before it rolled out of bounds. Troy was called for holding on the play, however, and instead of Troy getting the ball deep in Aviator territory with a chance to go up two scores heading into halftime, Butler got the ball at midfield and

promptly marched 50 yards for a touchdown with less than 30 seconds in the half. Not only did that play potentially result in a 14point swing, it gave the Aviators a huge boost in momentum heading into the second half. • What We Learned Yet again, it seems the Troy football team just can’t catch a break. For the better part of two years, the Trojans have seemingly had games won, only to find themselves on the losing end, frequently in the most heartbreaking of fashions. From the Hail Mary pass against Chaminade Julienne in the 2012 season opener all the way up until Friday night’s phantom fumble, Troy may have the worst luck of any team in high school football. Of course, the flip side to that coin is that sometimes teams have to make their own luck. Troy can’t allow itself to

get into one-score games — more often than not in the past two years, it hasn’t worked out well. The Trojans need to have bigger leads heading into the game’s waning moments. • What Happens Next As was mentioned earlier in the article, Troy’s hopes of making the postseason or winning a league championship have essentially vanished. Troy is playing for pride. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Troy is looking for its first win against TrotwoodMadison since 2005. Against Greenville, Troy will be looking to protect a winning streak that dates back to 1999. And against Piqua in the last game of the season, all the Trojans will be doing is playing in Ohio’s most-played rivalry game. In a game that contains as much emotion as football, pride can be an awfully powerful motivating force.

Worth a thousand words Buccs’ Ouellette unstoppable in huge victory BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor There’s no need to come up with a catchy turn-of-phrase or more flowery praise here to talk about Covington’s victory over Miami East in a battle of two undefeated teams Friday night. The photo to the right of these words says everything. A.J. Ouellette ran over, through, around and past the Miami East Vikings the entire second half Friday night, leading the Buccaneers to a convincing 34-0 victory and helping them not only improve to 7-0 on the season, but also in all likelihood wrap up the Cross County Conference championship with three games left to play. Sure, Covington still has 52 Twin Valley South and 6-1 National Trail to go in the next two weeks, but the Panthers have yet to defeat anyone with a winning record — and struggled mightily against 2-5 Bethel Friday night, rallying with nine fourth-quarter points to win 15-7 — and the Blazers have only played two teams with winning records. One was Twin Valley South, a 35-21 win, and the other was Miami East, a 42-13 loss. Friday’s game against the Vikings lived up to the hype for a half as Covington led only 6-0 at the break. But then Ouellette, who had 72 yards on 11 carries in the first half, doubled that total on one unbelievable run to make it


Covington’s A.J. Ouellette breaks free on a run Friday night against Miami East. 13-0, then the Vikings fumbled the ball away and Ouellette scored on a 56-yard run two plays later — and that was that. Ouellette also kicked the field goals and extra points, too, giving him 28 of the Buccs’ 34 points in the game. The Vikings (6-1, 5-1) now must face what possibly is a bigger test than playing an undefeated team — trying to rebound after their first loss against another quality opponent, and on the road to boot. They play at 6-1 Tri-County North in Week 8, which Covington narrowly defeated 22-14. Miami East’s mental toughness, as well as physical, will be put to the test.

Which leaves one other undefeated team — and it still has yet to be tested. Tippecanoe ran its record to 70 by obliterating Stebbins 6320, outscoring the Indians 350 in the second quarter alone. The Red Devils go to Tecumseh next week, which pushed unbeaten Springfield Shawnee on Friday but has had some lackluster results this year, as well. Covington, Miami East and Tippecanoe are practically guaranteed playoff spots at this point, and so is Lehman after a 21-14 victory over Fort Loramie. The Cavaliers won’t face anyone else with a winning record this year, meaning all they need to do is win

out and they should be in. On the other end of things, Milton-Union and Bradford are running out of chances to get their first win of the season. The Bulldogs held a 21-8 lead after one quarter, but a kickoff return for a touchdown to start the second for Preble Shawnee snowballed into a 32-point run that Milton-Union never recovered from in a 54-34 loss. They travel to 2-5 Dixie in Week 8 — probably their best chance — before facing 5-2 Waynesville and 3-4 Northridge. And Bradford? Well, there’s always fellow winless team Mississinawa Valley in the season’s final week.

• SWBL MONROE — The MiltonUnion Bulldog boys won their fourth straight Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division championship Saturday at the SWBL meet at Monroe High School. Milton-Union won with 17 points, while Waynesville was second with 55. The Bulldogs did so in dominant fashion with six of the top seven finishers. Kyle Swartz won (17:49), Colton Graumen was second (18:15), River Spicer was third (18:35), Luke Ferguson was fifth (18:59), Ridge Spicer was sixth (19:09) and Eric Swartz was seventh (19:18). The Milton-Union girls were runners-up with 51 points to Waynesville’s 31. Freshman Lauren Meredith was third (22:18), Haily Bohse was ninth (24:06), Katie Litton was 10th (24:11), Grace Warner was 14th (26:00) and Kira Rohr was 15th (26:07). The Bulldogs will run at the district meet Oct. 19 at the Miami Valley CTC.

DEVILS From page A8 “Sammie shot a 41 on the second nine today — her best nine of the year,” Murray said. “Tori played really well both days … there were a lot of positives to take from this. They didn’t have a lot of experience, and with four of them coming back next year, if each gets five of six strokes better, where right back where we are now.” Lindsey Murray, though, got to go out with her best performance at the state tournament. After shooting her best round in three trips to state on Friday, a 70, Murray sat one stroke behind Dull’s 69 — which led her to maybe play some holes differently on Saturday. “She had three birdie putts in the first five holes that were make-able, but she just didn’t,” Murray said. “She came in down by one and wanting to win, and she took some risks. You’ve got to take risks sometimes if you want to move up. “She played pretty well over the weekend, and now she’ll be in a good spot at Xavier. She’ll have the chance to compete for some pretty big things there.” And she got plenty of practice at that this weekend. Compiled and written by Josh Brown.

TITLE From page A8 “This is mine and Anya’s first for the Division I district race next “We’re in the same district with year in cross country, so it feels weekend at the Miami Valley CTC, Beavercreek and Centerville, so we focusing on their next big goal for want to advance. Hopefully everygreat,” McCormick said. “Sawka ran an outstanding race the season after winning the North. one is fresh and ready to go on “Our goal now it to go out on Saturday.” today,” Alexander said. “Anya North ran a great race today. And our home course and run in the Abby Pence, she went out there regional at Troy,” Alexander said. fighting a knee injury and still ran what she should have.” “During warm-ups, it was still hurting,” Pence said. “We debated whether or not I should pull out of the race. But I didn’t want to pull out of the GWOC.” It was a tough race to run for the Trojans, who normally like to run in one big pack together. The weather was sunny and oppressively hot, though, which affected everyone’s racing and strategies. “It just depends on how we’re feeling,” Sawka said. “Today, the competition was more intense and it was really hot. Time-wise, we were not there today, but we all did a lot of moving up in the race (position-wise).” Lebanon’s Jacuelyn Crow won the race (18:12.28) and Centerville’s Photo courtesy Lee Woolery/Speedshot Photo Lainey Studebaker was second Troy’s Anya North (left) and Megan Falknor compete Saturday during the GWOC Troy’s Abby Pence runs Saturday during the GWOC Championships (18:16.4). at Sidney High School.

From page A8 “They’re both good athletes,” Troy coach Bob Campbell said. “You’ve got to be a good athlete, physically and mentally, to be able to compete the way they did today in conditions like these.” Butler’s Jake Brumfield won the race in 15:45.53, with Northmont’s J.T. Mackay in second in 15:50.09. And Mackay was part of the key to Jones’ and Nosker’s success, Campbell said. “We knew Jake would probably win the race,” he said. “We thought if Stephen could stick with J.T. at the two-mile mark, he’d have a chance to be in there at the end. In the past, J.T. has gotten away from Stephen. But if Stephen stayed with him — and Branden stayed with Stephen — they’d both have a shot at a good finish.” And that’s exactly what they got, Troy’s Stephen Jones rounds a corner at the GWOC too. Jones was third in 15:52.87, Championships Saturday at Sidney High School. and Nosker was fifth in 16:02.16.

And given that their goal which they both attained at the Miami County Invitational a few short weeks ago was the 16-minute mark — on a cool and perfect morning for running, nonetheless — the fact that they hit that goal in rough conditions is even more impressive, especially heading into next week’s Division I district tournament. Butler, however, finished a pack of four runners from sixth to ninth in the divisional standings to claim the North title with 31 points to Troy’s 36. For the Trojans, Blake Guillozet was 14th overall (16:35.82), Josh Spayde was 38th (17:33.96) and Troy Schultz was 47th (17:46.61). Alex Meier was 93rd (19:30.2) and Bryce Meier was 98th (19:48.02). The heat hit Schultz the hardest. Due to a health condition that prevents him from going all-out in extreme temperatures, he simply

wasn’t able to keep up the pace he normally can reach. “We went out Saturday with Blake, Stephen and Branden for a workout and had Troy run a twomile time trial,” Campbell said. “It was a perfect day, and we wanted him to run 10:00. He ran 10:01. At the Tipp two-mile race a couple weeks ago, Stephen and Branden’s times were 9:56 and 10:00. He can run with those guys in ideal conditions. “At the County, he ran a 16:45, and Josh Spayde ran his best time of the year, a 17:35. Today, Josh ran 17:34, and Troy ran 17:46. I know he’s disappointed today, but he gave it all he had. I couldn’t have asked for more.” The Division I district meet will be Oct. 19 at the Miami Valley CTC.

Trojans finish regular season with 1-0 win Staff Reports

TROY — The Troy Trojans spent a lot of emotion and effort Wednesday night to defeat Piqua for the outright Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division championship. Yet they still managed to fight through the lag that kind of game can create and defeat Miamisburg 1-0 Saturday night at Troy Memorial Stadium to finish the regular season .500 at 7-7-2. “Coming off of an emotional high like the other night, you’re bound to take a step back a little,� Troy girls soccer coach Michael Rasey said. “Fortunately,

we powered through it. “Miamisburg, to their credit, played good defense. They packed it in pretty good, and their goalkeeper made some nice saves. They’ve had some close losses to some good teams, so we knew going in that it would be a challenge to score on them.� In the end, though, Annie Zhang got her first goal of the year, finishing off a corner kick by Wednesday’s hero, Kina Sekito, with 11:20 left to play for the game’s only score. “We’ve been looking for someone that can get into the mix on corners all year

long,� Rasey said. “Annie got in there, got after it and put enough on it to redirect it into the goal.� Troy now has a short turnaround to prepare for the beginning of the Division I sectional tournament. The 10th-seeded Trojans travel to No. 7 Fairborn at 7 p.m. Monday — a team that defeated Troy 4-3 earlier this season. “Hopefully we can go into Monday’s game with a little momentum, having won two straight now,� Rasey said. Lehman 6, Piqua 0 SIDNEY — The Lehman Cavaliers

built a little more momentum heading into next week’s Division III sectional tournament, routing Piqua 6-0 Saturday. Maddie Franklin had two goals and an assist to lead Lehman (13-1-1), while Jenna Kronenberger, Marla Schroeder, Ashley Keller and Hannah Fogt each had a goal. Lauren Goettemoeller had two assists and Elizabeth Edwards and Olivia Sehlhorst each had one. Piqua (10-5-1) hosts Fairmont in the Division I sectional tournament Monday, while top-seeded Lehman has a first-round bye and hosts No. 11 Triad on Thursday.

No. 2 Oregon tops Washington By The Associated Pres

SEATTLE — Marcus Mariota threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns, added another 88 yards and a TD rushing, and No. 2 Oregon won its 10th straight over their rivals to the north, No. 16 Washington, 45-24. Mariota’s passing was nearly spotless, he used his legs to make the Huskies pay when throwing options were covered and was easily the best player on the field. Mariota completed 24 of 31 passes, and ran another 13 times. He threw touchdowns of

4 yards to Bralon Addison and a 65-yarder to Josh Huff on the first possession of the second half for the Ducks (6-0, 3-0 Pac12). Huff had to be carted to the locker room with an apparent right leg injury in the first half, only to come back after halftime and burn the Huskies secondary.

Members of The Knights of Valour suit up to compete in a full-armored joust each weekend at the Ohio Renaissance Festival.

Almost History Ohio Renaissance Festival ready to wrap up 24th season HARVEYSBURG — Ohio Renaissance Festival patrons have a rare opportunity to step back in time for a day or two when they visit the 30-acre 16th-century village … but not for very much longer. After today, just one weekend remains in the eight-weekend run. The festival’s Marketplace Weekend is set for Oct. 19-20 in Harveysburg, where visitors can see a full-armored joust, watch pirates vie for the queen’s attention, gnaw on a turkey leg and be serenaded by wandering minstrels. For directions or to learn more about the annual event, visit online at

Dipsy, from the Washing Well Wenches, emphatically swings “Mr. Wettums” to ensure the crowd ----pays attention during the show.

Above, Capt. John Stout performs for people strolling throughout the village. Although he doesn’t recommend trying it at home, Stuartski Siskonovich is all to eager too play with fire for festival patrons.

Above, “Wolfman” from the Knights of Valour spears a ring in the jousing arena. At right, Crusty and Willie — who comprise two thirds of The Mudde Show — get a laugh from the crowd during a performance at The Muditorium earlier this summer.

At left, Dirk Perfect and Guido Crescendo of The Swordsmen, a regular act at the festival for more than 20 years, perform Sept. 21.

stems had finally gotten the message to cease and desist, and allow autumn to don its own warm hues. While autumn’s colorization is triggered to a great extent by changing photoperiods — the ratio of daylight to darkness — it’s not the whole story. I’ve watched the same scenario occur year after year. Fall color always comes late hereabouts, though just up the hill and up the road, maples are flaming away like gangbusters. I suspect the annual dawdling along this corridor woods is at least partly due to the river itself — a result of extra moisture and possibly a measure of protection from the elements by being lower our surrounding areas. Right now, here along the river, you have to look long and hard to see anything red other than a few scarlet twinings of Virginia creeper. A small patch of sumac remains a desultory olive. And not even the ubiquitous poison ivy is showing much orange. Certainly nothing to compare with a showy swamp maple.

Frankly, if I hadn’t watched it lag this exact same way every year since I’ve lived here, I’d be worried — deciding prematurely that any dazzling color along the river was obviously not going to happen. But I know better. Autumn color takes time ‌ and it takes a bit more time here. Give it a couple more weeks to dress up for the seasonal party, I thought, before you count it a flop. About the time I’d decided that time and patience would revolve things, I heard the clamorous honking of approaching geese. Canadas. Not migratory birds, but rather locals, neighbors coming my way from upstream where they often spend the night on one of several large ponds. Suddenly the first of them materialized from the fog—big birds, flying low and fast in a ragged string, necks out, white cheek patches gleaming against black heads. They passed at eye level, 40 feet away. Two dozen or so, chattering amiably, so close I could hear the sweep of their strong


wings sweeping through the damp air. You can’t hurry autumn any more than you can rush spring. The leaves, here and elsewhere, will turn in their own time, just as violets ignore all our advice and pleading as to when they ought to bloom. Mankind, for all his bluster and meddling, has yet to convince a goose it’s time to head south, or a swamp maple that now’s the moment to put on its bright scarlet cloak. Our hummingbirds recently departed without seeking human council. The groundhog has prepared his winter den and is busily fattening up for the season of cold he knows in his bones will soon enough arrive—and never once thought of confirming this notion with anyone. I like that. It gives me great comfort to know I’m not in charge of autumn color or anything else which nature manages perfectly. All I ask is to merely be allowed to stand and look ‌ and marvel at all I witness.

Is fish sauce having its kale moment in America? Six months ago, New York chef Marc Forgione had hardly heard of fish sauce. Then he watched his chef-partner Soulayphet Schwader using it to flavor nearly every dish at their new Laotian restaurant Khe-Yo. Now, it’s in all of his restaurant kitchens. “It’s like a new thing in my arsenal,� says Forgione. “Instead of saying, ‘Let’s add salt or soy sauce,’ it’s ‘Let’s add a little fish sauce.’� Used at least as far back as ancient Rome, and known today primarily as a flavor enhancer in Asian cuisines, the season-

ing made from fermented — read as rotting — fish is about to have its kale moment. Fish sauce is making its way out of the ethnic ghetto and taking its place next to salt in American restaurant kitchens as many chefs embrace its complex profile and ability to intensify other flavors. “You don’t necessarily see it on menus as an ingredient, but almost every chef I know — no matter what cuisine — has fish sauce in the kitchen,� says chef Andy Ricker, of Portland, Ore.’s PokPok, who has been using fish sauce for decades in his

Asian cuisine. “They use it to season. It gives this immediate boost of umami.� Like Ricker and Forgione, many chefs initially encounter fish sauce in Asian food. But today they are using it in everything from classic French to American cuisine. At his restaurant American Cut, Forgione tops grilled swordfish with “bang bang sauce,� a concoction of garlic, chilies, lime, sugar and fish sauce. At Restaurant Marc Forgione, he drizzles it in a coconut milk ceviche. Chef Peter Serpico, who used fish sauce in the Asian-inspired food at Momofuku, uses it like soy sauce at his new Philadelphia restaurant Serpico to deepen flavors in items such as sunchoke and kale salad. Chef Jamie Bissonnette discovered fish sauce at Vietnamese markets when he was growing up in Hartford, Conn., he says, but today he uses it to flavor everything from tarragon-and-shallot vinaigrette to grilled octopus and country pate. Applying fish sauce in such dishes isn’t a big stretch when you consider that anchovies often are used in a similar manner — to create layers of flavor.

In ‘The Circle,’ Eggers conjures creepy tech giant Circle’s secrets — seems to grow more naive and less paranoid, rather than the reverse. “I have yet to conjure a scenario where a secret does more good than harm,” one of the Circle’s wise men tells Mae, and

her indifference toward the implications of her employer’s schemes grows nearly maddening as the book’s climax approaches. But it also effectively portrays what Eggers seems to be arguing in this thoughtprovoking page turner:


By Phone (937) 339-2911


constant oversharing in the company’s thriving social networks. Eggers is at his best as he lampoons social media manners and habits, and the insularity and groupthink that permeate his Silicon Valley behemoth. Though they work in some of the world’s most desirable jobs, the book’s “Circlers” are a prickly, needy bunch: constantly in search of attention and affirmation, hooked on the superficial validation that social media can provide. When Mae, early in her tenure, inadvertently overlooks an invitation to a themed brunch that a coworker extends through one of the Circle’s layers of interactive forums, his hurt feelings trigger an intervention from her boss and human resources. Working at the Circle inarguably improves Mae’s life — the company even springs for health insurance for her ailing father. She increasingly takes to her job, showing a knack for the Circle’s obsessive customer service routines and becoming a master at endlessly deploying the smiles, frowns, zings and reviews that define its social media presence. So Mae is terrified when a slip-up in her private life comes to the attention of leaders at the Circle, only to see it turn to her favor and enable a rapid rise into the company’s top ranks. Soon, Mae has fully embraced the company’s mission that online lives should be fully transparent.

Here “The Circle” shifts from satire toward cautionary tale, as Mae finds herself in the orbit of the “three wise men” who together run the Circle: a cunning corporate shark, an affable utopian and a reclusive computer genius. As she gains more insight into the company’s ambitious plans for its mysterious goal of “completing the Circle,” the book lurches — not always totally convincingly — into something more like a thriller. A few of the book’s late revelations feel borrowed from B-movie screenplays, and the flair for chiseled, affecting prose that Eggers showcased in his previous novel, “A Hologram for the King,” is occasionally replaced here with clumsy transitions and obvious exposition. But, in a smart twist on a typical thriller plot, Mae — as she learns more and more about the

“The Circle” (Alfred A. Knopf/McSweeney’s), by Dave Eggers A tech giant with tentacles deep into the lives of its users is no longer an unusual thing to imagine, but Dave Eggers takes the growing inescapabilty of social media and personal technology to clever and chilling places in his new novel. “The Circle” is the massively successful technology company at the center of the latest from Eggers, best known for his 2000 memoir, “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.” It’s a few years from now, and the Circle has swallowed up Facebook, Google and other formerly dominant rivals with a fiendishly simple idea: TruYou, a singular online identity and operating system that has eliminated the need for multiple usernames and passwords across various sites, devices and applications. TruYou has largely rid the Internet of anonymity while pushing its users to eradicate already fading lines between their real and online lives. But such abstract concerns weigh little on 24-year-old Mae Holland, who, as the book starts, is giddy with excitement to have lucked through a personal connection into a customer service job at the Circle’s huge, architecturally stunning Bay Area campus. “The Circle” begins as satire, as Mae navigates the peculiar demands of the Circle’s corporate culture. In return for their cultlike devotion, the Circle rewards its employees with almost unimaginable perks and benefits. Entertained at nightly campus events by famous musicians and artists, fed by celebrity chefs and bombarded by swag, employees of the Circle are expected to bask in their mutual privilege through

“Top Down: A Novel of the Kennedy Assassination” (Random House), by Jim Lehrer “What if?” is a tried-andtrue starting point for a novelist. In the case of “Top Down,” PBS newsman and veteran fiction writer Jim Lehrer asks an intriguing question but doesn’t quite come up with an equally intriguing answer. What if the Secret Service agent who decided not to equip the presidential limousine with its bubble top ended up blaming himself for John F. Kennedy’s assassination? Lehrer comes to the question naturally because, on Nov. 22, 1963, he was a young Dallas newspaper reporter covering the president’s visit. In fact, he asked about the Plexiglas covering as the security detail prepared for the day’s events. In Lehrer’s 21st novel, Dallas newspaper reporter Jack Gilmore looks back at the events of that awful day from the standpoint of five years. It’s 1968, and college student Marti Walters enlists Gilmore to help save her father from the depression that’s killing him. He’s been tortured by the belief that the Plexiglas covering he decided not to install would have deflected Lee Harvey Oswald’s bullets. Gilmore is moved less by the idea of saving agent Walters from himself — or by the possibility of romance with Marti — than the prospect of a sweet exclusive for the newspaper. He agrees to keep the whole episode off the record in order to participate, but can he keep such a promise? It’s a promising plot, especially as a cultural take on the event that rocked the country a half-century ago. Yet Lehrer is slow to get it off the ground — recording the Walters family’s reaction to the assassination is not at all compelling — and the payoff is thin. A bigger point about America then and now, how we deal with honor, or even the “what if’s” in our own lives is too understated if not absent.

Oklahoma City: Native America, art and more OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Is Oklahoma part of the Midwest, Southwest or southern United States? Ask three different people residing in the Sooner State and you’ll get three different answers. It’s a question with no solid answer, and so Oklahoma has taken a little bit of culture from each and made it its own. It’s where people say y’all and wave as they pass by in a driving car. It’s where you’ll still hear references to cowboys and Indians, and where the state meal is made up of chicken-fried steak, fried okra and squash. Nowhere is the melding of cultures more noticeable than in Oklahoma City, the state’s capital and largest city. Home to nearly 600,000 residents, Oklahoma City is becoming a booming urban area, with a popular major basketball team, The Thunder; a 50-story skyscraper (the Devon Energy Center), and a host of options for dining, museums and recreation. Here are five free things to see and do while in Oklahoma City. RED EARTH MUSEUM Oklahoma is home to 39 Native American tribes. The tribes come from all over the country, having been forced to relocate here in the 19th century to what was known as Indian Territory. They still have many different cultures, languages and beliefs. Visiting each of the tribal headquarters within the state makes for a daunting task, but their influence is felt throughout Oklahoma

This Oct. 9 photo shows shops in the colorful Paseo Arts District are pictured in Oklahoma City. The two-block art district is lined with stucco buildings showcasing their Spanish influence.

City, including at the Red Earth Museum, a small nonprofit gallery in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. The Red Earth Museum displays more than 1,400 Native American items, which includes fine art, pottery, basketry and beadwork. More than 1,000 American Indian artists and dancers from across North America turn out each year for the annual Red Earth Festival, next scheduled for June 5-7, 2014; . PASEO ARTS DISTRICT Developed in the late 1920s, the two-block Paseo Arts District is lined with stucco

buildings showcasing their Spanish influence. More than 20 art galleries, a handful of restaurants and a few boutiques and gift shops line the street, which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Paseo celebrates a First Friday gallery walk each month in which visitors can see new work and enjoy live music and wine; http://www. . BRICKTOWN Stroll along the brick streets of this major entertainment hotspot converted from a warehouse district. While patronizing the businesses in Bricktown will set you back a bit in the

wallet — think upscale restaurants and nightclubs — going just for the people-watching and photo ops on a Friday or Saturday night is worth the trip. In Bricktown, men wearing boots and cowboy hats stroll alongside 20-somethings out for a night on the town. Watch visitors take a water taxi down on the Bricktown Canal or a horse carriage carry passengers past the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, where the minor league Oklahoma City RedHawks baseball team plays; . MYRIAD BOTANICAL GARDENS

The 17-acre (7-hectare) Myriad Botanical Gardens offer a bit of reprieve from the hustle and bustle of urban life in downtown Oklahoma City. Trees, shrubbery and other landscaped areas surround a small lake. A children’s garden, splash fountains, off-leash dog park and paths for running and walking offer visitors a variety of activities. In the summer, free concerts, movies and children’s events are held throughout the gardens; http://www. . THE OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL AND MUSEUM Even people who don’t know much about Oklahoma City will likely recall the Oklahoma City bombing. The memorial is where visitors can pay tribute to the people who were killed and those who survived the bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. While the Memorial Museum has an admission fee, the outdoor memorial, full of symbolism, is free and open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Monuments at each end of the memorial note 9:01 a.m. and 9:03 a.m., framing the destruction that took place at exactly 9:02 a.m. Once inside the grounds, visitors can walk along a reflecting pool. Nearby, 168 chairs represent the number of lives lost, with 19 of the chairs smaller, representing the children who perished in the bombing; (The federal shutdown has not affected this site.)

Detroit art museum hosts show devoted to animation DETROIT (AP) — The 128-year-old Detroit Institute of Arts has gained a reputation as a home for some of the world’s most hallowed masterpieces: Paintings by Van Gogh and Picasso, the Diego Rivera industry murals. Things will look a bit different, though, over the next few months. Vincent, Pablo and Diego will have company in the form of Mickey, Bart and Bugs. “Watch Me Move: The Animation Show,” which organizers call the “most extensive animation show ever mounted,” has both iconic clips — featuring the aforementioned Mouse, Simpson and Bunny — as well as lesser-known works that span the past 100plus years. The show brings together industry pioneers, independent filmmakers and contemporary artists, including William Kentridge and

Nathalie Djurberg, alongside commercial studios such as Walt Disney , Aardman and Pixar. The exhibit takes its name from American cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay’s century-old short film “Little Nemo,” which displays an onscreen message inviting viewers to “Watch Me Move.” Visitors can peruse more than 100 animated film segments — nearly 12 hours’ worth of footage. Time-lapse, stop-motion, hand-drawn and computer-generated animation. It’s all there in a six-section configuration designed to attract art lovers and pop-culture fanboys alike. “Animation is art and is just as worthy as our Van Goghs or our (Pieter) Bruegels to hang inside a museum,” said Jane Dini, one of the show’s curators. “Hang” is the operative word.

Plush couches and other seating areas are placed throughout the show, along with headphones and built-in audio sources. It’s designed to allow visitors to take a load off and absorb the animated content at their own pace. “One of the things we tried to think about was how somebody could easily get through the exhibition in a half an hour, 40 minutes and feel that they had been immersed in the history of animation,” Dini said. “And then for those real connoisseurs of animation, that they could sit here and really” take it in. For that latter group, the DIA is offering a $75 pass that allows for unlimited visits to the exhibit and to the related movies and lectures. One lecture will be delivered by Leslie Iwerks, an Academy Award-nominated filmmaker whose grandfather, Ub Iwerks,

was a pioneering Disney animator. A clip from Ub Iwerks’ “Silly Symphonies” is shown not far from “Little Nemo” in the show’s “Beginnings” section, which kicks off the show and is devoted to the emergence of the animated image. Dini’s brother, Paul, a longtime animation writer, also will give a talk. “My brother used to say, if he really wanted to get my goat, that more people knew around the world who Batman was than the ‘Mona Lisa,’” Jane Dini said. The exhibition presents more than a lengthy succession of moving images. Visitors are encouraged to try an interactive video game that begins its journey in London’s Underground. The show concludes on a futuristic high note — the projection mapping room. Projection mapping uses soft-

ware to manipulate projected images and help them to fit on irregularly shaped surfaces. In the exhibition’s projection mapping room, light splashes across jagged-edge formations that at one point give the appearance that spiders are crawling all around. “The thing that we wanted to do with the show that we thought was really important was to have a unifying introductory experience and a unifying conclusion experience,” said Holly Harmon, an interpretive specialist at the DIA. “This is where the technology is now. When you walk into this room, you really don’t know how it’s done.” “Watch Me Move,” which initially was shown at the Barbican Centre in London, runs in Detroit through Jan. 5, before heading to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, Tennessee.

Halloween parties for grown-ups Halloween, the holiday built around the twin pleasures of playing dress-up and eating too much candy, is obviously a hit with children. But send invitations to your grown-up friends and you’ll probably find they haven’t outgrown the urge to don creepy costumes and celebrate in spooky, theatrical style. Want to host a party that merges Halloween fun with grown-up sophistication? Turning your home into a haunted mansion is surprisingly easy, says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, founder of Flynnside Out Productions. Just ditch the cheerful orange pumpkins and smiling ghosts for darker, more creative décor. “Stay away from anything cute,” Flynn says, “and instead opt for creepy-chic.” Here Flynn and two other design experts — Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs and the latest “HGTV Star” winner, Tiffany Brooks — offer decorating advice for a memorable, stylish and affordable Halloween party. NATURAL FABRICS Cheesecloth evokes ancient mummies, while burlap brings to mind scarecrows. Both fabrics are inexpensive and lightweight, but sturdy — perfect for Halloween

party tablecloths. These solid-color pieces also have a more adult feel than the whimsical prints on Halloween tablecloths or napkins designed for kids. Call likes using large sheets of brown craft paper on buffet tables or as a runner down the center of a Halloween dining table. Cluster small gourds (the darker and more oddly shaped, the better) along the runner, he says, then add a few large pillar candles. Easily and inexpensively, “you’ve knocked out a table that’s great for any fall holiday,” Call says. And cleanup is simple: “After a party, throw the paper out.” Flynn says you can make your home’s entryway extra creepy by soaking large pieces of cheesecloth in tea, then shredding the cloth once it’s dry. Hang the pieces from the ceiling above your porch or drape it from walls with a few wellplaced nails to conjure up the feel of a haunted house. DARK AND DANGEROUS COLORS All three designers suggest using a muted palette of grays, browns and black. Brooks suggests spraypainting pumpkins glossy gray to create a glamorous centerpiece. Use orange only as an accent, Flynn says, perhaps adding a few

orange napkins to an otherwise black and gray table setting. You can also create a dramatic scene by spray-painting empty wine bottles in a matte black, he says, then replacing the labels with your own creations: Using scrapbooking labels or cardstock and a Sharpie, come up with creepy names for the liquids supposedly in the bottles. Flynn also suggests buying inexpensive wooden birdhouses or cheap Christmas village houses, then spraying them with dark gray or black paint to create a minighost town for display on your buffet table or bar. WEIRD WALLS Take down any cheerful artwork and replace it with old portraits from thrift shops or flea markets. Halloween stores sell deliberately creepy portraits made for this purpose, but it’s more fun to hunt down real paintings, says Flynn. Brooks agrees that this easy decorating move can transform the feel of a room, especially if the room will be lit only by candles. (She plans to shut off her electricity entirely during a Halloween party this year, filling each room with just enough black pillar candles to provide dim, flickering light.) Once you’ve hung your new gallery of portraits, Flynn suggests See HALLOWEEN | B6 40504166

spurred investors to sell stocks and buy Treasury bonds. Mortgage rates tend to follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.67 percent Wednesday, up from 2.63 percent last week but down from 2.71 percent on Sept. 23. The shutdown could also slow the housing recovery, if it last for more than a few weeks. Some prospective borrowers are finding it harder to close on their mortgages. And some lenders are having a hard time getting confirmation of applicants’ income tax returns and Social Security data because of government agency closures, delaying some mortgage closings. Furloughs at the Federal Housing Administration are slowing the agency’s processing of loan guarantees for some low- to moderate-income borrowers and first-time homebuyers. About 30 percent of U.S. home mortgages are insured by the FHA.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages were little changed this week, staying near their lowest levels in three months. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate on the 30-year loan edged up to 4.23 percent from 4.22 percent last week. The average on the 15-year fixed loan rose to 3.31 percent from 3.29 percent. Both are the lowest averages since July. Mortgage rates began falling last month after the Federal Reserve held off slowing its $85-billiona-month in bond purchases. The bond buys are intended to keep longerterm interest rates low, including mortgage rates. Longer-term rates have also stayed low because of the partial government shutdown and a lack of government economic data. The shutdown that began this month has

if repairs are necessary during the inspection phase. Many sellers do not realize all the potential complications that can arise in a transaction. Hire a realtor who can work deliberately and assertively for your best interest. When discussing price, offers and a multitude of other interests regarding your home sale with your trusted real estate professional make sure you come to the table with an open mind. Saying to yourself, your partner or your agent that you will listen, but won’t budge from your view point is not coming to the table in a position of negotiation and assertiveness. Likewise, an agent not interested in your view point is not the right agent for you either. Negotiating is an under-utilized skill and sometimes it can be painful, but in the end it can get your home sold faster — and for more money!

‘Going Faux’ transforms home’s style Phoebe Taylor’s 20-yearold suburban Atlanta ranch house began plain and “builder grade.” A professional decorator, she transformed it with faux wood beams, decorative molding and a gold-spun paint job that looked like “soft marble.” Her vision: “what our dream house would have been if we had gone out and bought it.” It’s called “Going Faux” — turning homes into something they basically are not through prefab architectural embellishments and eye-tricking wall finishes. Enthusiasts say there’s no reason for even the most budget-conscious among us to live a cookie-cutter existence. “My house was not an expensive house. But even the million dollar houses don’t have this kind of detail,” says Taylor, adding that she recently sold the house in just one day. Other “faux” features to consider include ceiling decals that look like parts of elaborate chandeliers, cabinetry embellishments and painted wainscoting. “I have seen some trailer homes that have more personality to them thanks to paint, sweat equity, buying some lumber, and their owners using their creativity,” says Lee Gamble, a Steamboat Springs, Colo.based designer and painter who specializes in faux finishes.

In this Sept. 11 photo, superintendent Maria Rodriguez Casas Real Estate Auction gives a group of students an assignment at Mathis Middle School in Mathis, Texas. Casas, who was born in the U.S. but raised in Estate Sales Mexico, spent many of her summers as a migrant worker alongside her parents and eight brothers and sisters. TROY, 4107 North Piqua Troy

MATHIS, Texas (AP) — Maria Rodriguez-Casas stood in a middle school hallway when she heard loud noises from inside a classroom. It sounded a bit unruly and unrelated to a lesson plan so the Mathis superintendent opened the door. Rodriguez-Casas greeted the students with a smile and asked why some were off task. She asked four students to step into the hallway for a chat. Their behavior wasn’t something to be proud of, she said, and she questioned why they didn’t respect their teacher. Each must write a paper, she said, with an answer. Yes ma’am. Rodriguez-Casas commanded their respect. She has commanded that kind of respect for more than 20 years in education. And she’s earned that respect and work ethic through literal sweat and extreme sun exposure. The 48-year-old mother of three is the daughter of migrant farm workers, who she helped harvest fields in Michigan, North Dakota and Ohio. The backbreaking work earned them $12,000 to $17,500 that had to last through the year. “It shaped me when we qualified for food stamps,” she told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.“I felt this sense of being ashamed … I didn’t want to be part of that.” Rodriguez-Casas, who

leads a 1,695-student school district about 40 miles northwest of Corpus Christi, said her experience doesn’t embarrass her. It shaped her and gave her a perspective that has helped her educate students, particularly the 123 Mathis ISD migrant students. The state reported 34,735 migrant students, according to Texas Education Agency data. It’s a time she calls her “migrant life,” a chapter that showed her she could do more. She gained the confidence from a high school educator who immersed her in the English language and from her mother, Juanita Garcia de Rodriguez, who pushed her to see her full potential. Rodriguez-Casas, who was born in Brownsville and grew up across the border in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, so her family could care for her grandparents. That role of caregiver is a constant in her life, she said, because it is part of her culture. “It’s embedded in you,” she said. “Family comes first.” During that time, her family continued to travel into the U.S. to work in the fields, she said. When family later moved to Brownsville, RodriguezCasas struggled in school as other students teased her with name-calling as well as made fun of her heavy accent and language barrier.

ed, stained or glazed, are particularly helpful in transforming the look of kitchen cabinets. “If they are in good shape and the flow works for you, then there is no reason to change them out,” Gamble says, adding that the appliqués, paint and new cabinetry hardware can transform a “builder-grade kitchen” to any style from classic to contemporary. “Suddenly you have a new kitchen,” she says. The products that make such projects possible are becoming easier to use, home designers says. The manufacturer Fypon, for example, makes synthetic ceiling beams and medallions and decorative millwork that are lighter and more manageable than real wood, Gamble says. Decorative millwork like, say, a sunburst pediment over a door, is an easy improvement to a room, says Kathleen Ziprik, a Fypon spokeswoman. Taylor says she used tricks like that in her renovation. In redoing her master bath, for example, she started with “just a straight shot bathroom.” She added molding and wood panels to the walls, and framed the bathtub, using new material with decorative embellishments. “It looked very dramatic,” Taylor says, adding that buying a new home with those real architectural features would not have been affordable. “It really looked real,” she says.

From page B7 with desire and patience — even ambitious projects like, say, making the interior of a standard subdivision home look like a cozy Tudor or classic Colonial, or like something out of the rustic West. The Internet is a DIY decorator’s best friend, she says, offering inspiration and sources for adding architectural and decorative elements to a home. Next is paint, which Gamble calls “the cheapest way to improve your house” — and it’s about more than just giving the walls new color. Paint can be used to create illusions of architectural elements: For example, you can use blocks of color on walls to create the look of molding, or three variations of one color for a three-dimensional look — an old technique called trompe l’oeil that can make your home look just a little more like the Palace of Versailles. Paint can make high ceilings look lower — extend the ceiling’s color to a lower point on the wall — or give them more height by going dark. Using different colors on the top and bottom halves of a wall can create the look of wainscot, Gamble says. Ornamental appliqués that adhere to anything from cabinetry, walls, mantels and molding to furniture and picture frames add ready-made detail without breaking the bank, she says. The decorative appliqués, which can be paint-
